Week in the News

All roads lead to Washington this week, except for Andy Fastow's and Bernie Ebbers — and maybe Mozart's.

President Bush battled a major brush fire over leaked intelligence saying the Iraq war has poured gas on the flames of international terror. Congress gave the President nearly all he wanted on detainee interrogation and trials — including no habeas corpus. And House Republicans — on the way out the door to the midterm hustlings — have said yes to warrantless wiretapping.

Fastow and Ebbers went to jail. Karzai and Musharaf fumed in the Rose Garden. The Berlin Opera cancelled Mozart over Mohammed.

Hear a conversation with Michael Isikoff, Tony Blankley, and Jack Beatty about this week's news.
