A quick note today as we prepare a very full show.
We are live in Washington off the top with a live report on President Barack Obama's meeting with Haitian President Rene Preval.
We will then take you live to Jerusalem for the latest on what some have called an "embarrassment" for U.S Vice President Joe Biden, currently on an official visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories: the announcement by Israel that it is building 1,600 more homes for Jewish Israelis in predominantly Arab East Jerusalem.
We will be talking to Israeli Government spokesperson Mark Regev at the half hour and asking him why the Israeli Interior Ministry made the announcement during Mister Biden's visit.
Jeane Meserve will bring us new developments in the case of the so-called "Jihad Jane" – a female American convert to Islam accused of trying to recruit fighter to wage "holy war."
We are also live in Kabul with more on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad to Kabul.
That and the rest of the day's top stories, as always!
