January 5, 2010
Posted: 07:54 PM ET
The President says the "system failed in a potentially dangerous way." What went wrong and how will he fix it? We'll talk to the Washington Post's Bob Woodward to get some perspective on how Obama is handling the terror threat and how he compares with his predecessors. Plus, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and former Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte join Larry. How would they have handled the situation differently?
Is Joan Rivers A Security Threat?
Joan Rivers says she was not permitted to board her commercial flight from Costa Rica to New York on Sunday because of her "suspicious" passport. Her seat was given away and she was told she couldn't fly. Find out what happened next and whether this can happen to you!
And we want to hear from you:
How do you think President Obama is responding to the foiled Christmas Day terror attempt?

LOS ANGELES – Joan Rivers is many things: Funny lady. Jewelry mogul. Red carpet mercenary. But a terrorist?
Can we talk?
Rivers, 76, was deemed a danger to national security and booted from a Newark-bound flight in Costa Rica on Sunday by a jittery Continental Airlines gate agent who found the two names on her passport fishy.
Her passport reads: Joan Rosenberg AKA Joan Rivers. Rosenberg was her late husband's last name.
The "nasty and cruel" Continental gate agent bumped Rivers from the last flight out Sunday and the comedian found herself alone (her daughter, Melissa, flew out to Los Angeles earlier in the day) and with no ATM card and just $100 cash, she said.
Rivers' tale of woe put a famous face on travel's new reality – one that leaves many feeling like common criminals.
"If I were going to make up an alias, I wouldn't pick Rosenberg. I'd pick Jolie or Pitt," said Rivers, back home Monday in New York with her sense of humor intact. "Do terrorists wear Manolo Blahniks? I can tell you Donna Karan does not make anything that hides a bomb," she said.
