geJoin host Brit Hume and FOX's Team Washington weekdays at 6 p.m. ET for "Special Report" — Find out what's happening inside the Beltway and on the world stage.
On tonight's edition of “Special Report”…
• Some Democrats and war critics continue to accuse President Bush of lying about reasons to go to war with Iraq, but the administration maintains that Congress supported the effort based on the same intelligence. Details tonight on the debate over intelligence and the president's push to stay the course in Iraq.
• President Bush and his 2004 presidential opponent seemed united for a moment today at the White House, but the event was not about the war in Iraq and the appearance of unity was short-lived. Carl Cameron explains.
• Then, there is an issue that could further taint the U.S. image in the Middle East: the planting of stories by the U.S. Department of Defense in Iraqi newspapers. Bret Baier has a report from the Pentagon.
• And on the day after the president made a forceful argument for his strategy in Iraq, Jim Angle takes a look at public opinion on the war and the president. Is the president convincing any of his critics?
• Also, correspondent Mike Emanuel has a profile of Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele, an African American Republican who is running for the U.S. Senate.
• Then, once thought to be the great hope of the Democratic Party in 08, Sen. Hillary Clinton's popularity may be diminishing. Her war stance has gotten her into some hot water and is coming under fire from the right and left. Major Garrett has a report.

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 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.
