Hosted by Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich

In his historic State of the Union address this year, President Bush declared "North Korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction while starving its own people. ...Iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror... Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward America and to support terror... States like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world."
But why did the president only name these three countries? And what do we do now that the countries have been publicly singled out? What's next for America and its partners in the War on Terror? Should we take the offensive and move directly, with full military force, to replace these dangerous regimes? And finally, should we make a move to go after Iraq's Saddam Hussein and remove him from power for good?
In our hour-long special we'll discuss all these questions with some of America's best minds and most important decision makers.
Among the people we'll talk to:
• Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, the president's point man in the War on Terror and the Bush administration's most visible and articulate cabinet member since the September 11 terror attacks.
• Senator Joseph Lieberman, former Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate and possible 2004 presidential candidate, one of the most influential men in Congress on either side of the aisle.
• Laurie Mylroie, an author and leading authority on Saddam Hussein.
• Michael Ledeen, a former National Security Adviser, Defense Department consultant and Undersecretary of State during the Reagan administration.
• Reuel Marc Gerecht, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a former CIA employee.
Please join us for Not If, But When: America & the Axis of Evil this Saturday and 11 p.m. ET.
