Join 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.
• At the Summit of the Americas (search), in Mar del Plata, Argentina, President Bush joins 33 other leaders in a search for ways to cure Latin America's systemic poverty, but he's finding few people want to take the medicine he's prescribing, the free trade agreements he’s pushing. Carl Cameron explains why.
• Then, Senate Democrats (search) continue to press for progress on the so-called “phase two” of the Intelligence Committee investigation into whether the Bush White House selectively used intelligence to hype the Iraqi threat before the war. Major Garrett has the details.
• And a top British general in Iraq says many of the explosives being used in Basrah are coming from Iran. This while in Iraq, Sunni-led insurgents killed 11 Iraqi security forces and wounded 14 in two separate attacks today, as Shiites began celebrating a major Muslim holiday. Bret Baier reports from the Pentagon.
• Plus, Kenneth Tomlinson, the former board chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (search), who was accused by critics of trying to politicize public television and radio, has resigned from the board under a cloud of criticism and investigation into his tenure at the CPB. James Rosen will have more.
• Also, what has the Tom DeLay (search) conspiracy and money laundering case become? It appears that if a judge has a political orientation, he or she must be recused from hearing the case. Greg Kelly takes a look at the larger implications of the case.
• And Trace Gallagher will take a closer look at California's controversial Proposition 73 (search), which requires parental notification before minor females can get abortions. Will the initiative pass in next week's election?
• And Jeff Goldblatt looks at Detroit’s mayoral race, as Kwame Kilpatrick (search) seems to have come back to some extent in the polls for a second term as the city’s mayor.

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.
