Join host Brit Hume and FOX's Team Washington weekdays at 6 p.m. ET for "Special Report" — Find out what's happening inside the Beltway and on the world stage.
• The pitched battle between Congressional Republicans and Democrats over pre-war intelligence, leaks and investigations continued today on Capitol Hill. Jim Angle has the details.
• Then, three gunmen in a speeding car killed a lawyer for a co-defendant in Saddam Hussein's trial and wounded another attorney Tuesday in Baghdad. Bret Baier has a report from the Pentagon.
• And House Republican leaders scramble to find the votes to pass their package of spending cuts to offset some of the costs of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. It's a big test of party unity and the post-DeLay leadership team. Major Garrett has more.
• Plus, Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito continues his meetings with Senators on Capitol Hill. One particular senator, Joe Lieberman, has some very positive things to say about the judge. Brian Wilson has a report.
• Also, members of the Senate Judiciary Committee want to examine the U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia. What is the role of Saudis in disseminating hateful anti-American and anti-Israeli propaganda throughout Islamic schools and mosques in the United States? James Rosen takes a closer look.
• And French police say overnight unrest last night, while still widespread and destructive, was not as violent as previous nights. Meanwhile, President Jacques Chirac declared a state of emergency Tuesday as Dana Lewis reports.
• Then, much attention was given to Israel's withdrawal from Gaza, but there has been less notice given to the state of relations between Israel and Palestinians in the West Bank. FOX News correspondent Jennifer Griffin reports there is plenty of evidence of bumps in the road.

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 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.
