Topics and Guests for December 26

Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announces that President Bush has authorized the reduction of U.S. troops in Iraq in 2006. How soon can we expect to see some American troops return home? Retired U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Bill Cowan weighs in.

Then, there's been a huge uproar over President Bush's domestic spying program. Does the president have the authority to secretly monitor people in the U.S. without a warrant? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from former Rep. Martin Frost, D-Texas, and Republican strategist Genevieve Wood.

Plus, after a crippling three-day NYC illegal transit strike, will any union members be fined? We'll get the legal lowdown from Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News senior judicial analyst.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
