We've got new developments on those terror raids in New York City and Denver earlier this week. A 24-year-old Colorado resident and Afghan national has admitted ties to al Qaeda, an official close to the matter told CNN today.

His name is Najibullah Zazi. He's suspected of plotting a terrorist attack here in the U.S. We're told he's been meeting with FBI investigators today for the third consecutive day. Homeland Security correspondent Jeanne Meserve is working her sources tonight and will have a live update on the case.

We also have new details on the Yale murder case. Randi Kaye shows us how investigators tracked the suspect Raymond Clark.

And, First Lady Michelle Obama is taking a bigger role in the health care battle. We'll tell you what that's all about.

Plus, meet the James Carville impersonator who is sure to make you laugh this Friday night. Carville is a Democratic Strategist and CNN political analyst. We have him on the show from time to time to talk politics. Well, his "twin" had lot of us chuckling here in the newsroom.

Join us for these stories and more starting at 10pm ET.

    The one million dollar question: How do we get rid of Al Qaeda once and for all?

    Al Qaeda wants to infect every nation on earth. They are nomadic-religious extremists (bullies) who take over individual countries terrorizing its' people. There must be hundreds of Al Qaeda leaders. Even if we were to capture Osama Bin Laden, there are more like him waiting in the wings. Fighting Al Qaeda is not the same as fighting a country. These knuckleheads are nomads from all over the world.

    There is a way to stop them though. Every country on this planet must be prepared and vigilant. Possibly, that's why President Bush wanted to strengthen Iraq. In the hopes that Al Qaeda could not take over Iraq. Food for thought.
