Topics and Guests for August 9

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

According to reports, a secret military intelligence team identified four of the 9/11 hijackers — including the ringleader Mohammad Atta (search) — as possible members of an Al Qaeda cell in the U.S. more than a year before they turned U.S. airplanes into deadly missiles. Why didn't authorities do anything after learning this information? And could 9/11 have been prevented? We'll get insight from Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and one of the primary sources for this story.

Then, the lawyer for the Catholic schoolteacher accused of raping her 16-year-old student claims she may have been "taken advantage of." Now a Web site reports the teacher was blackmailed. Even if that is true, would it make a difference legally? We'll get the lowdown from Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst.

And, polls continue to show American support for the war in Iraq is slipping. So could that hurt the GOP in upcoming elections? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Democratic strategist Bob Beckel and Republican strategist Charlie Black.

Plus, is Google's powerful search engine putting your privacy at risk? You may be surprised. Carolyn Said, staff writer at The San Francisco Chronicle, weighs in.

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