Topics and Guests for February 21

Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

Day one of President Bush’s European tour ends with a dinner date with French President Jacques Chirac. Was “burying the hatchet” on the menu? John O’Sullivan, editor of “The National Interest”, joins the debate today.

President Bush calls our rift with Europe (search) a "passing disagreement." But is that just wishful thinking? We'll ask Gov. Bill Richardson, D-N.M., former ambassador to the United Nations.

How will the release of secretly recorded audiotapes impact the president's second term? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Frank Keating, former Oklahoma governor, and Bob Beckel, Democratic strategist.

Plus, U.S. and Iraqi forces are on the offensive, targeting terrorists in Ramadi (search). Will this finally break the back of the insurgency? That's the big question for retired U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Bill Cowan, FOX News military analyst.

And a computer glitch in a DNA database (search) allows a convicted child molester to slip through the cracks. Are police placing too much faith in high tech tools? Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News senior judicial analyst, joins us to discuss this unsettling mistake.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
