Moderator: Gwen Ifill The rumblings against Iraq reach a dull roar as Vice President Cheney makes the case for war against Iraq. Does it matter what Congress or the U.N. might have to say? What of some of the elder statesmen within the Republican party and their cautions against war? Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times reports. The delicate dance between the United States and Saudi Arabia continued this week. David Sanger of The New York Times has the story of U.S./Saudi relations, the alliances and the challenges. As we approach September 11, a nation of politicians, advertisers, journalists, victims and others grapple with how to deal with the anniversary. Susan Feeney of National Public Radio has that story. And finally, a look at the New Hampshire Republican Senate race. John Harwood of The Wall Street Journal has the details. [26 minutes]
