Monday, Oct. 13: Columbus Day

A U.S. Army major in Iraq reports that there's a "clear indication" that Saddam Hussein has surfaced in his hometown of Tikrit (search).

Is Saddam alive and well and influencing the deadly attacks against Americans -- including Sunday's car bombing in Baghdad? We’ll ask David Gergen, adviser to four presidents and director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

Plus, Paul Bremer, the U.S. civil administrator in Iraq, promises to bring the terrorists responsible for Sunday's deadly car bombing to justice. But how will that investigation work?

In wake of the espionage scandal at Guantanamo Bay, what steps are being taken to improve security at the base?

Plus, we'll have the latest on the Mepham hazing scandal. As the boys accused with sexually assaulting their younger teammates at a football camp begin to turn themselves in to authorities, we ask the question: Where were the coaches?

And, America marks Columbus Day (search) with parades and protests. We'll take a fair and balanced look at the man credited with discovering our nation.
