Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”

President Bush's focus of the day is on foreign policy and the U.S. military, as key advisors come to the ranch in Crawford. Carl Cameron reports.

And while there have been fierce clashes between insurgents and U.S. forces in the rebel stronghold of Ramadi (search), an Iraqi soldier will today become the first citizen of his country to be buried with full military honors at the U.S. National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. Bret Baier reports.

Plus, the U.N. nuclear watchdog expressed "serious concern" today over Iran's resumption this week of nuclear activities that could lead to an atomic bomb, but the agency left open the possibility of further negotiations. James Rosen has more.

And Jim Angle has the latest on John Roberts, including more on the Supreme Court nominee's released documents from 1981 where he advised then-high court nominee Sandra Day O'Connor to stand firm in her insistence not to talk about specific court cases like Roe v. Wade (search), saying it could bring up impropriety and possibly disqualification issues later.

Also, details are emerging that 9/11 Commission staffers were told twice that a military intelligence unit called "Able Danger" had identified Mohamed Atta (search) and other hijackers a year before the attacks. Catherine Herridge has the latest.

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, including Carl Cameron, Wendell Goler and Major Garrett, 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.
