HOT OFF THE SHOW! Cyber Terrorism

My guest Erick Stakelbeck, Terrorism Analyst, CBN News tells of fleets of computer savvy, Al-Qaeda cyber-hackers that are attempting to attack our financial infrastructures to steal information and cripple us economically; and Russia and China hacking into our computer systems as a form of electronic espionage.

President Bush keeps reminding us that failure is not an option in Iraq if Americans want to be safe at home. But there are some among us who still don't get it.

For example: On NBC's "Today Show, Sen. Barack Obama said, "We're not going to baby sit a civil war." Sen. Dick Durbin(D) is heralding the idea that "questions are now being asked of this administration that haven't been asked for almost four years."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Embassy in Athens was attacked by a rocket that police said was probably carried out by a domestic terror group.

And a video was posted on the Web that shows members of an Islamic insurgent group preparing and launching four rockets at a U.S. military base near Samarra, Iraq. The members of the militant group are wearing gas masks while filling the rockets with a black chemical, then taken into the field and fired.
