Tonight's guests:

  • Richard Engel, NBC News chief foreign correspondent, live from Cairo
  • Charles Blair, chemical weapons expert and senior fellow at the American Federation of Scientists
  • Dan Rather, anchor and managing editor for "Dan Rather Reports" on AXS-TV

For reasons that are a little silly but are related to a big announcement coming later tonight, there is not video with executive producer Bill Wolff tonight, but you know he still makes a musical connection with each day's show production and today is no different. I think the meaning behind this one is that you won't want to miss tonight's show.
