A week ago, Osama bin Laden was found and killed by American special forces in Pakistan. A hefty amount of information has been retrieved from the compound, enough information to fill a "small college library," according to Tom Donilon, President Obama's National Security Adviser. A number of videos of Osama bin Laden were released to the public, including one, which shows the late terrorist watching videos of himself on a small television. Callie Crossley, host of "The Callie Crossley Show" on WGBH in Boston, looks at what all this intelligence will tell us about bin Laden, and how this affects the U.S. role in Afghanistan.
Crossley also looks at the potential impact on southern states and cities following the devastating floods from a Mississippi River. Charlie Herman, economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC Radio, looks at upcoming retail sales numbers, and analyzes American consumer spending, and how much of it is impacted by high gas prices.
