We have a new story topping our rundown at the International Desk.
About an hour ago, U.S. President Barack Obama made comments regarding those interrogations techniques used against terrorism suspects during the Bush administration years.
Mister Obama said last week, when the Justice Department published memos detailing the interrogation methods, that he did not support prosecuting CIA agents.
But about an hour ago, the American president said he could support a congressional investigation into the lawyers who wrote the memos legalizing now banned techniques like waterboarding.
We're live at the top of the hour at the White House.
Also, we're going to be covering the legal case against one of the suspected Somali pirates who earlier this month held the American captain held hostage in the Gulf of Aden for 5 days.
We're live outside in New York with the latest on the case against the teenager. We're also talking live to Omar Jamal of the Somali Justice Advocacy Center. He says he's helping the youngster get a fair trial. In fact, there's still a question surrounding the suspected pirtate's real age. He may be as young as 16. If he is a minor, real ethical questions will arise about what to do with him.
We'll discuss all angles.
That and more at the top of the hour.
See you on TV!
