Friday, August 26:
Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”
• Talks on the draft constitution continue in Iraq, as protestors take to the street. Time is winding down before Parliament has to declare the draft final. We'll get the latest from FOX News' David Piper.
• Another person involved in Able Danger (search) stepped forward Friday and said, "Yes, indeed, they did know about Atta a year before 9/11 and that the picture they had of Atta was different from the passport photo that was used to identify him after the terror attacks." FOX News' Catherine Herridge has the lowdown.
• Then, on day three of four days of meetings of the base closing commission, BRAC votes to keep open Ellsworth Air Force Base (search) in South Dakota. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., unseated then-Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle partly on the strength of his claim that he would be better positioned to help save the base. Mike Emanuel has the details.
• And, a new law has been passed that requires federal workers and students to be taught about the Constitution on Constitution Day. Brian Wilson takes a look at this new law and interviews its author, Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.
• Plus, Gen. Myers gave a briefing about his recent 10-day trip to say good-bye to his troops as he ends his tenure as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Myers discussed the importance of the U.S. "staying the course" in Iraq both militarily and politically. Bret Baier has the story.

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.
