The federal Base Realignment and Closure Commission recommends to close the world-renowned Walter Reed Army Medical Center outside of Washington, D.C. The hospital would move most staff and services to the National Naval Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Md., to create a new, expanded facility and to streamline medical services. FOX News' Bret Baier has the details.

Then, after a terror probe at a California prison, new light has been shed on the suspected trend of extremists finding new recruits behind bars. One way radicalism may be spreading is through the Islamic material that is permitted to be distributed to inmates. So what can be done to stop the flow of questionable material? We'll get insight from terror analyst Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, who researched the "religious" documents passed around the prison and found some shocking messages inside them.

And, the Brits are cracking down on what you can and can't say in their efforts to fight terrorism. They're trying to keep Islamic extremists from preaching hatred in the U.K. So if the comments Pat Robertson (search) made about Chavez were said about Muslims in England, would he be in legal trouble? Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst, gives us the legal lowdown.

Plus, for decades, Sen. Trent Lott (search), R-Miss., has dedicated his life to the state of Mississippi and the U.S. Government. Some even say he is one of the most powerful Republicans in Washington. Now he's telling his tale from inside the Beltway in a new book called "Herding Cats." Sen. Lott joins us with the lowdown on his book.

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