Update on Foiled Terror Conspiracy

Hosted by

In Britain, the airline terror conspiracy is still unfolding.  Twenty-four people have been arrested there.  In Pakistan, two British citizens and five Pakistanis are in custody.  Was the airline conspiracy al Qaeda's so-called "big one," designed as a follow-up to September 11?  We get the latest from Britain, look at the Pakistani connection and the state of western intelligence, and political implications in an election year.
