Chemical and biological weapons, along with cyberwarfare, are the new national security threats. Also, a new semester and still no help for students who are in debt.


An expert in national security defines the two biggest threats to America 12 years after 9/11, and a time when the NFL is limiting what you can bring into a stadium. The fall semester at colleges around the country has begun, and a former Education Department official has an idea on how to lessen the massive debt burden facing American students. And Bill Press talks with Representative Jim Moran about Syria, and why the Virginia Congressman doesn’t attend classified briefings.
