Tonight on Special Report with Brit Hume:
Jim Angle reports: The United States flatly rejects a proposal by six undecided Security Council nations that the March 17 deadline for Iraq to comply with U.N. disarmament demands be extended for 45 days. Also, the United States suspends U-2 surveillance flights over Iraq after Iraq forces two of the American planes to return to base.
Guest preview: Harlan Ullman, senior associate for The Center for Strategic and International Studies, gives us his take on the possible war with Iraq and a post-war Iraq.
• The Air Force tests for the first time the biggest conventional bomb in the U.S. arsenal, a 21,000-pound munition that could play a dramatic role in an attack on Iraq.
• President Bush sends a letter to the Senate calling on the body to permanently ban judicial filibusters.
• Pakistani intelligence officials confirm a top Al Qaeda suspect captured earlier this month met Usama bin Laden in December and has produced information that has helped authorities close in on the terrorist mastermind.
• Israeli troops fire a tank shell at a three-story apartment building, then raze it, killing a Palestinian gunman who several hours earlier had attacked an Israeli army patrol.
