A Federal Air Marshal is seen training in this undated Department of Homeland Security photo. President Obama has authorized the augmentation of the Federal Air Marshal Service from other Federal Law Enforcement Agencies. ALL international flights will have Air Marshals on board.

As we reported on last night's broadcast, President Obama has ordered a surge of federal air marshals on board overseas flights flown by U.S. carriers.

The air marshals are to be in place by Feb. 1, and officials say the U.S. is in a "race against time" with other suicide bombers who might be planning an attack similar to the failed Christmas Day plot.

Our question to you today: Will More U.S. Air Marshals on Planes Make You Feel Safer?
