Shasta Groene (search) tells authorities that she and her brother, Dylan, were repeatedly molested by Joseph Edward Duncan III, the man charged with two counts of kidnapping, during their six-week harrowing ordeal. So why was a dangerous, repeat sex offender out on the streets? Pat Brown, criminal profiler, weighs in.

Then, at age 16, Joseph Duncan (search) tortured and raped a 14-year-old boy at gunpoint. He spent the better part of his adult life behind bars. So why did a judge let him out of prison? Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst, weighs in.

And, despite arrests and search efforts, some Arubans fear the hunt for Natalee Holloway (search) is leaving them with a bad rap — and they aren't happy about it. But is the Dutch Caribbean island doing enough to find the missing teen? We'll ask Vinda de Sousa, Holloway family attorney.

Plus, the Pentagon says some 20,000 contractors are in Iraq helping in the rebuilding process. Some firms even put that number at 80,000. But could civilian contractors' presence actually be hurting the work of U.S. troops? Frank Gaffney Jr., president of the Center for Security Policy and former assistant secretary of Defense, weighs in.

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