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.
• President Bush is using a Veterans Day speech to counter-attack critics who say he twisted pre-war intelligence to justify the invasion of Iraq. Speaking to veterans and military families at an army depot in Pennsylvania. Wendell Goler has highlights from the speech.
• Then, more than 50 million Americans who have put on a uniform to protect the nation are being honored today. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson says Veterans Day has additional meaning this year with so many service men and women in harm's way overseas. Bret Baier has a report from the Pentagon.
• And, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made a personal appeal today for Iraqis to bridge sectarian differences, venturing to a majority Sunni Arab region of the country to ask for cooperation in the coming election. Secretary Rice’s surprise visit is a month ahead of the Dec. 15 elections for a permanent government. Reena Ninan has a report from Baghdad.
• Plus, in a speech Thursday night, Karl Rove gave his first public remarks since the CIA leak indictments were issued. He railed against "judicial imperialism" and said the courts need to get back to the role, which they were intended to serve. James Rosen has the latest from the investigation.
• And, we’ll also sit down with the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes about his investigation into the Senate controversy over pre-war intelligence. Did the Bush administration manipulate intelligence to go to war in Iraq?
• Also, Mike Tobin is in Jordan with the latest from Wednesday’s triple bombing in Amman and the angry response from Jordanians protesting the attacks by Al Qaeda terrorists.
Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.

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.

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."
