Sen. Pat Roberts (search), R-Kan., chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has a controversial proposal for the Central Intelligence Agency: Scrap it. But is disbanding the CIA the best thing for American intelligence? We’ll ask Mike Baker, former CIA covert operations officer and current chief executive of Diligence LLC.

Scout Mission: Time is running out for a 12-year-old Boy Scout missing after a short hike back to a campsite in the woods near Salt Lake City. We’ll get the latest on the search from FOX News’ Alicia Acuna.

Amber Alert: Amber Frey’s testimony may have proved Scott Peterson is a cad, but have they proven he is a murderer? We’ll get the legal lowdown from Bob Massi, FOX News legal analyst, and Aphrodite Jones, criminal journalist covering Peterson's trial.

Conduct Unbecoming? It’s the war behind the war. The Bush and Kerry campaigns continue to snipe over Kerry's Vietnam record and his anti-war crusade when he came home. Will the issue still be a factor come November? Rich Lowry, editor of the National Review, and Dan Gerstein, former communications director for Sen. Joe Lieberman, join the debate.

Plus, you'd think it would be OK to fly the American flag anywhere in the United States, right? But as FOX News’ Jeff Goldblatt explains, you’d be wrong.

And, are dads more stressed than moms these days? David Gleason, senior director and head of Spike TV’s brand and consumer group, weighs in.

Those stories and the latest editions of Only on Fox and Stupid Criminals on today's edition of "DaySide with Linda Vester."
