On FOX News Sunday this week: As the nation commemorates the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, we will assess where the U.S. stands in the global war on terrorism and the challenges ahead with a leading administration official and the voice of the Democratic party.


Our guests this week include:

Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State
Howard Dean, Democratic National Committee Chairman

In a national address following September 11, President George W. Bush vowed that, "whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done." Five years later, how much progress has been made in the war on terrorism? What threat does Al Qaeda still pose? How close are we to achieving victory in Afghanistan and Iraq? And as the administration faces limits on its intelligence and detention programs, does the U.S. have the necessary tools to win the war? For answers and insights about that fateful day, recent progress and the path ahead we turn to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

And, with less then 60 days until the midterm elections, the rhetorical battle is heating up between the White House and congressional Democrats. Given increasing public frustration over Iraq and issues on the home front, Democrats are advocating a new direction as they look to win the majority in both houses of Congress. But where do Democrats want to take the nation, and what is the party's national security agenda for the war on terror if they are successful in November? We will speak with Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean about his party's vision and its prospects for success this fall.

Our FOX News Sunday panel will then provide its analysis of the state of the war on terror and its impact on the upcoming midterm elections and our big four will finally be back together after nearly two months apart. The panel will include FOX News Managing Editor Brit Hume, Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol, NPR Senior National Correspondent Juan Williams, and NPR National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson.

Finally, we will take a look back at 9/11 through the eyes of someone who experienced a personal loss, but is working to make sure we remember all the victims — the president of the Pentagon Memorial Fund, Jim Laychak.

So check your local listings and we'll see you on the next FOX News Sunday,
