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:

• Five homicide attackers detonated simultaneous car bombs Wednesday, targeting police stations and a police academy and killing 68 people, including at least 10 schoolchildren. As violence continues, is more funding for U.S. troops necessary in Iraq to keep the peace? That’s the big question for Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., vice chairman of the House Armed Service Committee.

The draft. We haven't had one since Vietnam. But is the war on terror straining the capacity of our all-volunteer force? We’ll ask Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., member of the Select Committee on Intelligence.

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