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.

Topics and Guests:

• National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice (search) faced some tough questions from the 9/11 commission.

We have the latest on the Washington reaction from correspondent Wendell Goler.

Is the commission satisfied with the testimony? Commissioner Slade Gorton, a former Republican senator from Washington state, had the chance to question Rice.

Were the questions fair? And how well did rice acquit herself under fire? Judge Andrew Napolitano, FNC senior judicial analyst, gives his review.

• Most of our allies in Iraq signed on to be peacekeepers, not warriors. Is the Iraqi uprising scaring off our allies? Is the coalition of the willing starting to shrink in the face of violence? We ask Sen. George Allen, R-Va., member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Just how big is the uprising? Who is the enemy in Iraq right now? Former CIA operative Robert Baer has something to say about this.

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