Front Page: Bailout Plan Hits Stalemate, Debate Remains Doubtful, Terror Suspects Held on Plane

  • Bailout Plan Hits Stalemate:
    Negotiations over the plan to rescue Wall Street have ended in a "shouting match," with Republican members of Congress blocking the government plan after discussion with President Bush. Bush just gave a short statement outlining how the legislative process isn't pretty. Both sides are resuming talks later today with Nancy Pelosi saying there will be an agreement because, "it has to happen."
  • Debate Remains Doubtful:
    The first debate between McCain and Obama appears doubtful as negotiations over the economy continue in Washington. Obama says he plans to travel to the University of Mississippi where the debate is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET. McCain says "I'm very hopeful that we'll get enough of an agreement tomorrow so we can make this debate." McCain is returning to Capitol Hill today.
  • Terror Suspects Held on Plane:
    Two terror suspects have been arrested in Germany on a plane preparing to take off. The two Somali men had been under surveillance for months and were said to have been "possibly planning attacks" having left suicide notes behind in their apartments saying they wished to die in a "holy war." The plane was eventually allowed to take off following the arrests and a luggage search.
