Topics and Guests for June 30

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

Did Iran's president-elect have a hand in taking 52 Americans hostage in 1979? Some former captives say they have no doubt in their mind Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (search) is one of the people who held them hostage. We'll talk with one of the former hostages, William Daugherty.

His dad was president and his brother is the current president. But does Jeb Bush (search) have what it takes to follow in their footsteps? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Republican strategist, Brad Blakeman, and Democratic strategist, Chris Lehane.

Apparently, Paul van der Sloot (search) gave legal advice to his son, Joran, and Joran's two friends the day after Natalee Holloway went missing. So did Papa van der Sloot break any laws? Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst, gives us the legal lowdown.

Then, what legal steps are being taken in the Holloway investigation? We'll ask criminal defense attorney Ted Williams.

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