A big story rocks the U.S. Marine Corps today... the arrest of seven Marines (and one sailor) in a case we've reported on from Iraq... and the latest of several stories of misconduct in the commission of this violent conflict. Jim Miklaszewski will start us off in all likelihood tonight. We'll also report on today's killing of Saddam Hussein's lawyer and the kidnapping that took place there today. David Gregory will report on the president's European trip and Martin Savidge will take a look at the debate in this country about when American troops should come home from Iraq.
Tonight Anne Thompson will offer us a different look at one of America's most storied employers and manufacturers: General Motors. Pete Williams will look at the red-hot issue of privacy tonight, and Roger O'Neil will have a look at a new venue for worship. Talk about a different pew. There's also a troubling story afloat about the San Andreas fault.
Non-stop meetings here today -- interrupted only by an enjoyable lunch with our great class of summer interns -- the best and most talented collection of young people I think we've ever had. Other than that, today was all business, which I must now go back to as I head into the newsroom.
We hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
