We have breaking developments on the pilot who crashed his plane into an Austin, Texas office. We take you inside the Conservative Political Action Committee convention in Washington, where Dick Cheney inspired the crowd. Plus, why 96 hours proves to be a crucial when it comes to tracking accused Taliban spies in Afghanistan.

    @Emily, I didn't know about this rule until it was reported. But NATO has caused problems in the past. When we fought Serbia, at least one NATO country was tipping them off before our air strikes.

    The sad part is they do not talk about the other soldiers who's lives were changed that day for doing what we knew was right!!!! I still see them every day and will not look at the country we defend the same ever again!!

    @michelle....my thought exactly...why so many people to kill one man? It is all surreal to me...

    @ Kira, CNN: Maybe Jack Gray can write the script? Your in. I'll be the hotel bar tender that knows the entire story. See the prior night I was out with the killer.

    Why does a hotel in Dubai seem to have better security than our airports?

    the obvious answer A is that they allowed themseves to be on hotel cameras (no secret) etc to make it LOOK like it was israel. this is so much like a 24 episode why not consider the option that someone was framed?

    Israel caught on video. Hmm.
