Topics and Guests, October 1

Tonight on Special Report with Brit Hume:

Jim Angle reports: The United Nations and Iraq reach agreement on details to renew weapons inspections, but they reject a key demand by the United States and Great Britain — the right to inspect Saddam Hussein's eight presidential palaces.

Guest preview: Ken Gross, former general counsel for the Federal Election Commission, gives us the lowdown on the law as it pertains to the Sen. Robert Torricelli, D-N.J., ballot issue.


•  Major Garrett reports: President Bush is meeting with a bipartisan group of House and Senate leaders to press for a resolution authorizing him to take whatever means he determines to be appropriate to disarm Iraq and remove Saddam Hussein from power

•  Carl Cameron reports: Sen. Robert Torricelli, D-N.J., once seen as invulnerable, ends his re-election bid, just five weeks before Election Day, leaving Democrats scrambling for a candidate as the balance of power in Congress' upper chamber hangs by one seat. Who's the next candidate and will there be one? We have the latest.

•  Brian Wilson reports: More than a year after 9/11, glaring problems that contributed to the governments inability to connect the dots have not yet been fixed. That is among the findings contained in two withering examinations of what went wrong. And what did go wrong?

•  Bret Baier reports: They're cheap, easy to make and simple to conceal. And, since the September 11th attacks, on many people's minds. What are they and is America armed for an attack against them?
