And the panel put together by the president to examine what went wrong with America's intelligence gathering as it related to the war in Iraq said America's spy agencies were "dead wrong" when it came to claims about Iraq's WMD (search) capabilities. Wendell Goler has the details of the report.
Also, host Brit Hume talks with Tom DeLay (search) about his decision to get involved in the Schiavo case, particularly at a time when he was involved in his own controversy amid accusations of fund-raising irregularities that have brought close associates under indictment in Texas.
According to a new report out by the Pentagon (search), a U.S. troop transport vehicle being used in Iraq has defects, which have the potential to put soldiers at risk. Bret Baier investigates.
Plus, the AFL-CIO (search) inserts itself in the debate over Social Security reform, holding a "National Day of Action" Thursday. Jim Angle has a report.
Also, Dana Lewis has an interview with Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko (search) who will visit the White House next week. What’s ahead for U.S. — Ukraine relations after the announcement that President Yushchenko will pull his troops from Iraq?

About the Show
Anchored by Washington news veteran Brit Hume, "Special Report with Brit Hume" provides an in-depth look at the day's news and offers a daily topical discussion of political issues impacting the nation.
Hume serves as host to key newsmakers, political pundits and FOX News contributors exchanging views about political matters from taxes and Social Security to international affairs and the political scandal of the day.
Hume brings a historical perspective to the political scene that is rarely rivaled. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he has covered the policies, procedures and players in the national game called politics for more than 30 years. The Baltimore Sun referred to him as "the very personification of the political establishment."
Each program features a two-minute segment called The Grapevine, which reels off the latest outrageous news nuggets, political poll results and in-the-Beltway gossip that viewers will not see on any other news program. The New York Daily News describes The Grapevine as a must see that, "will make you sound smart around the water cooler… the next day."
FOX News' Team Washington provides live reports from the White House, Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court and key federal agencies. Seasoned correspondents, including Carl Cameron, Wendell Goler and Major Garrett, explore political hot spots, races and legislative battles being waged around the nation and abroad.
Hume wraps up each program with a lively roundtable discussion featuring Mara Liasson of National Public Radio, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard and Mort Kondracke of Roll Call.
