Tuesday, August 2:

Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”

Iran (search) may be much closer to producing nuclear weapons than the National Intelligence Estimate (search) indicates. Sources with knowledge of Iran's nuclear program say that Iran continues to pursue a military track for their nuclear energy, and their patterns of acquisition and research and development suggest Tehran's movement toward the buildup of a nuclear arsenal. FOX's James Rosen reports from Washington.

Then, Republicans in Congress have proposed legislation that would limit federal appeals on death sentences. FOX correspondent Major Garrett has details.

And the president signed the CAFTA (search) bill into law today, before he departed for his working vacation in Crawford, Texas in the month of August. FOX chief White House Correspondent Carl Cameron reports on the progress President Bush has made on his agenda over the last two weeks, and whether or not he can yet fairly be categorized as a lame duck.

More of the White House's release of thousands of documents from Judge John Roberts' (search) time in the Reagan Justice Department and the White House Counsel's office in the 1980s are now online, but Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats continue to ask for more. They want material from cases Roberts was involved with when he worked in the solicitor general's office. Jim Angle has the details.

Plus, host Brit Hume talks with New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind about his support for racial profiling in the effort to uncover terror plots.

We'll also talk with our all-star panel of FOX News contributors about the day's headlines:

—Ceci Connolly, national correspondent for The Washington Post

—Jeff Birnbaum, columnist for The Washington Post

—Charles Krauthammer, syndicated columnist

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!
