Violence marred the first full day of the forced evacuation of Israeli settlers from their homes in the Gaza Strip (search) on Wednesday. Details on tonight's show.
Israeli security forces began forcibly removing settlers and protesters in Gaza (search) today.

Jennifer Griffin has a report.
The anti-war protest outside President Bush's Texas ranch began as a one-woman sit-in and has since mushroomed into something much larger and this is first time his Crawford neighbors have had to confront this sort of a media circus. As Fox News Correspondent Molly Henneberg reports – they do not like it.
Plus, Bret Baier covers the latest news in Iraq including after at least 31 people were killed and 65 wounded in a triple car bomb attack on a Baghdad bus station today.
Then, reports that Democrats have embraced John Roberts (search) and are likely to give the Supreme Court nominee a pass during his confirmation hearing, really stirred the liberals up -- so much so, one liberal group is telling lawmakers to beef up their attacks on Roberts or else... Jim Angle reports.
And almost a year has passed since Secretary of State Colin Powell (search) termed the government-sponsored attacks against civilians and refugees in Darfur an act of genocide. James Rosen looks at the current state of the crisis in Sudan, and what the U.S. government is doing to alleviate the suffering.

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.
