One of at least three missiles fired from a poor neighborhood in Jordan narrowly misses a U.S. Navy ship docked at the city's port, but leaves one Jordanian soldier dead and another wounded. An Al Qaeda-linked group is claiming responsibility in an Internet statement. We'll get reaction from retired U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Bill Cowan, a FOX News military analyst.

Then, a lawmaker in the golden state wants California to follow in the footsteps of Arizona and New Mexico and declare an emergency along its border with Mexico. But Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says he doesn't see a crisis in the state. So what other options are available to deal with the border problem? We'll get insight from California Democratic Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez and Sen. Bill Morrow, R-Calif.

And, Cindy Sheehan (search) has become a rallying point for people who are against the war in Iraq. But military families who support the troops and their mission say Sheehan doesn't speak for them. Ronald Griffin says his son died in Iraq and it wasn't in vain. Kyle Andrew Griffin was killed in a truck accident in May 2003. Ronald joins us to talk about his son and weigh in on the Sheehan situation.

Plus, President Bush's approval rating nears a record low. So why aren't Democrats able to capitalize on the president's low numbers? Washington Post columnist David Ignatius weighs in.

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