Tonight on Special Report with Brit Hume:

House Democrats make Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the first woman ever to head a political party's caucus in Congress.

Plus:

• Despite Iraq's grudging acceptance of the U.N. resolution mandating the return of weapons inspectors, the rhetoric between Baghdad and the United States shows no sign of cooling down.

• A new Homeland Security Department moves closer to becoming reality after the House easily passes a bill calling for the largest overhaul of the government in more than 50 years.

• Lawmakers and the Bush administration worry that a new audio message believed to be from Usama bin Laden is a signal that more terror strikes are imminent, even as counterterrorism analysts scour the recording for clues about Al Qaeda's operations.

• Israeli troops capture the alleged mastermind of a shooting attack on an Israeli kibbutz in his West Bank hideout Thursday, and seize suspected weapons makers in the deepest raid into Gaza City in two years.
