The news doesn't stop on the weekends and neither does "FOX & Friends."

So start your weekend in the know with Juliet Huddy, Mike Jerrick and Julian Phillips:


The new intelligence bill (search) gets passed into law, but will it make people safer? We'll get the long and the short of it from FOX News contributors Ellen Ratner and Jim Pinkerton.

One thing missing from the alleged audiotape made by Usama bin Laden was the mention of top Iraqi terrorist, Abu al-Zarqawi. Was that an accident? We'll get insight from Jeff Beatty, founder and president of Total Security Services and former CIA counter-terrorism officer.
