Veteran newscaster John Gibson gets to the core of the most salient issues facing America today as host of FNC's hard-hitting primetime show The Big Story with John Gibson, airing Monday through Friday at 5 p.m. ET, with expert legal analysis from Judge Andrew Napolitano and in-depth field reports from correspondent Heather Nauert.

Today:

•  FOX News has learned details of a new U.N. Security Council (search) resolution the Bush administration is circulating to other nations, aimed at expanding international contributions to the peacekeeping force in Iraq.

A senior administration official says that under the terms of the new language, the U.N. would gain a larger role in developing Iraq's new constitution and supervising elections.

FNC White House correspondent James Rosen will be standing by live at the White House with the details.

We’ll also talk to Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., chairman of the House Appropriations Foreign Operations Subcommittee. How much aid will go to Iraq?

Plus — It seems that every day, we get news of more U.S. casualties. We'll hear from Jim Mayer, an amputee volunteer at Walter Reed Medical Center. What are the numbers, and what has he seen personally?

•  Lawyers for Kobe Bryant (search) are trying to get their hands on the mental health records of the 19-year-old woman who's accused the NBA star of sexual assault.

Should the defense be granted access to these files, and if so — how will the information affect the case?

FNC senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano will weigh in.

All of that... and more on The Big Story With John Gibson at 5 p.m. ET.
