Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”
Should Guantanamo Bay (search) detention facility be shut down? The debate continues on Capitol Hill after recent questions over the interrogation techniques. Carl Cameron has the details.
And while the violence continues in Iraq, an Iraqi judge questions Saddam Hussein (search) about the killings of dozens of men from a Shi'ite village where he survived an assassination attempt in 1982. Bret Baier has more.
Plus, could the U.S. Court of Appeals (search) for the DC Circuit lean Republican with the confirmation of a second Bush nominee? Major Garrett takes a look at how some Democrats are concerned about the court's future.
The Supreme Court (search) struck down a black man's death penalty verdict in Texas because the prosecutors appeared to have excluded black jurors. This represents just the latest in a series of instances in which the Supreme Court has become more involved in death penalty jurisprudence and Texas which executes more convicts by far than any other state. Megyn Kendall has a report.
Then, James Rosen reports from Lebanon where anti-Syrian Christian leader General Michel Aoun (search) realized a sweeping victory against Christian opposition rivals in the most crucial round of Lebanon's parliamentary elections so far.
Brit will also talk with John McWhorter, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute on the Senate’s consideration of apologizing for not having passed anti-lynching legislation in the 1960s.

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.
And more people watch FNC's Primetime than all of the cable news competition combined!
