Memorial Day: Monday, May 30:
Memorial Day (search) is a solemn day for remembering those who died in our wars, but also a day for celebrating our hard-won freedom. In that spirit, FOX News Correspondent Major Garrett sits down with a former soldier who survived harrowing experiences on the battlefield and went on to serve his country in other vital roles— former Senator Bob Dole (search).
The battlefield can be a place of great religious transformation, but what happens to the faith of America's men and women at war? Molly Henneberg talks with author Stephen Mansfield about the faith of the newest generation in battle.
And on this day of honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms, we’ll turn to Iraq, where over 500 American soldiers who have died there were killed as the result of an improvised explosive device (IED). But as Bret Baier explains, today the chances of surviving such an attack have risen dramatically.
Plus, looking back at the successes and failures of the first CIA (search) mission to Afghanistan after the 9-11 attacks. Greg Kelly talks with Gary Schroen, a 35-year veteran of the CIA, who was station chief in Pakistan and commanded the mission. Schroen chronicles the CIA’s spearheading of the war in Afghanistan in a new book.
Then, at the Holocaust Museum (search) in Washington, Memorial Day honors the American forces that liberated the Nazi concentration camps of World War Two. Survivors of the camps recall the terror of those years and their gratitude for the freedom they now enjoy in Major Garrett's report.
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.
