TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH," COULD

THE ATTACK HAVE BEEN PREVENTED?

NEW REPORTS SAY DIPLOMATS WERE

ASKING FOR MORE SECURITY IN

LIBYA, WHY DIDN'T THEY GET IT?

PLUS A BIG NIGHT FOR THE

CANDIDATES, WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN

TON'S DEBATE IN DENVER.

WARNINGS ABOUT CYBER WARFARE,

WHAT IS BEING DONE TO PROTECT

THE COUNTRY?

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

LEE WEB.

TWO REPUBLICAN LEADERS SAY

REPEATEDLY ASKED FOR MORE

SECURITY IN BENGHAZI BEFORE THE

ATTACK ON SEPTEMBER 11TH.

OFFICIALS IN WASHINGTON TURNED

THEM DOWN EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE

TWO EXPLOSIONS AND DOZENS OF

OTHER SECURITY THREATS.

THEY MADE THE STATEMENTS IN A

LETTER TO SECRETARY OF STATE

HILARY CLINTON.

THEY SAY THE SEPTEMBER 11TH

ATTACK IS THE LATEST ON A LONG

LINE OF ATTACKS.

CHAFEN SAYS MORE THAN 50.

SOME AMERICAN STAFFERS WERE

PLEADING WITH WASHINGTON TO

RECONSIDER THEIR REQUEST FOR

MORE SECURITY.

CBN NEWS ANALYST ERICK

STAKELBECK HAS BEEN TRACKING

THIS STORY FROM THE BEGINNING.

HE JOINS US FOR THE LATEST

DEVELOPMENTS.

ERICK, IF YOU WILL PAINT A

PICTURE FOR US IN BENGHAZI PRIOR

TO SEPTEMBER 11TH ATTACK?

REPORTER: LEE, ACCORDING TO

CHRIS STEPHENS, HIS PERSONAL

DIARIES WERE FOUND BY CNN ON THE

GROUND AND IN HIS PERSONAL

JOURNALS, AMBASSADOR STEPHENS

EXPRESSED CONCERN FOR HIS

SAFETY.

LOOK, NOW WE KNOW THERE WERE TWO

BOMBINGS OF THE CONSULATE IN THE

MONTHS PRIOR TO THE SEPTEMBER 11

ATTACK.

ONE BOMB, LEE, APPARENTLY BLEW A

CRATER THROUGH THE WALL OF THE

CONSULATE, THE OUTSIDE

PERIMETER.

WE HAD THE RED CROSS IN BENGHAZI

ATTACK.

WE HAD A PLOT AGAINST A BRITISH

CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI.

A LOT OF SMOKE HERE, NO PUN

INTENDED.

A LOT OF ACTIONS BY JIHADIST,

GOING BACK YEARS, NOT MONTHS IN

A RUN UP TO THIS HEINOUS ATTACK

THAT KILLED AMBASSADOR STEPHENS.

WHY WAS NOTHING DONE?

THAT IS WHY WE ARE GOING TO

HAVE HEARINGS.

OBVIOUSLY HUGE SYMBOLIC MEANING

FOR JIHADIST.

WE KNEW THAT BENGHAZI, VERY

PRECARIOUS SITUATION THERE.

A LOT OF BAD STUFF GOING ON

THERE.

FOR SOMEONE REASON WE DIDN'T

HAVE ADEQUATE SECURITY.

I BELIEVE AMBASSADOR STEPHENS

AND THREE OTHER AMERICANS SHOULD

STILL BE ALIVE.

I THINK WE'LL STILL GET ANSWERS.

ERICK, THE DAILY BEAST SAYS

IT IS COMING FROM WHISTLE

BLOWERS.

DOES THAT MEAN THERE IS A COVER

UP?

IT LOOKS LIKE A COVER UP,

LET'S LAY THE CARDS ON THE

TABLE.

LEE, WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THIS

ATTACK, U.S. INTELLIGENCE SAYS

YES THIS WAS AL-QAEDA OR

AL-QAEDA-LINKED MILITANTS.

ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS RIGHT

AWAY, THEY SUCK TO IT FOR A

WEEK, LOOK, THIS WAS

SPONTANEOUS, ALL OVER SOME

ABSECURE YOUTUBE CLIP.

THAT APPEARS LIKE A COVER

UP-TYPE SITUATION.

NOW THAT MORE AND MORE

INFORMATION IS COMING OUT AND

TRUTH COMING TO LIGHT, THEY ARE

SCRAMBLING, LEE, QUITE FRANKLY.

IF THESE HEARINGS GO DOWN ON

CAPITOL HILL, WE MIGHT HAVE MORE

OF A SCANDAL.

MAIN STREAM MEDIA COVERAGE IS

BIASSED.

WERE THIS UNDER THE BUSH

ADMINISTRATION AND CONDOLEEZA

RICE IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT.

THIS WOULD BE A MASSIVE

SCANDAL.

LOOK, THIS IS AN ELECTION YEAR,

FEW WEEKS OUT FROM ELECTION.

THEY ARE CHEER LEADING FOR

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

ERICK STAKELBECK, THANKS FOR

YOUR INSIGHTS, WE APPRECIATE.

REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS -- JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT FILED FOR A TRANSFER

OF SALE DESPITE OBJECTION.

SUPPORTERS THINK IT WILL CREATE

A THOUSAND JOBS.

OPPONENTS SAY IT EQUATES TO A

165 MILLION DOLLAR EARMARK AND

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION MAY USE

IT TO HOUSE TERRORISTS ON

AMERICAN SOIL.

THEY MAY TAKE THE PEOPLE FROM

SUPER MAX AND TAKE GUANTANAMO

BAY TO THE UNITED STATES.

ADMINISTRATION DENIES THAT

WILL HAPPEN.

FEDERAL LAW BARS TRANSFER OF ANY

DETAINEES FROM GUANTANAMO TO

THOMPSON PRISON.

30-YEAR-OLD NICHOLAS IVY KILLED

IN THE SAME REGION WHERE TERRY

WAS KILLED.

TERRY WAS MURDER WITH A GUN THAT

U.S. INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED

CRIMINALS TO BUY.

THE LATEST SHOOTINGS RAISES

CONCERN THAT THOSE ILLEGAL

WEAPONS ARE BEING USED IN BORDER

VIOLENCE.

"THE BRODY FILE" HAS A VIDEO OF

OBAMA DESCRIBING A FETUS AS

POTENTIAL LIFE RATHER THAN

ACTUAL LIFE. MY BASIC VIEW

IS THAT ABORTION IS AN

EXTRAORDINARILY DIFFICULT MORAL

ISSUE.

AS A CHRISTIAN, I THINK THAT A

FETUS IS NOT JUST A COLLECTION

OF CELLS.

IT IS POTENTIAL LIFE.

UM, AND I THINK AFTER

VIEABILITY, IT IS LEGITIMATE FOR

THE STATE TO PROHIBIT LATE TERM

ABORTIONS AS LONG AS THERE IS AN

EXCEPTION FOR MOTHER'S LIFE AND

HEALTH.

PRIOR TO VIEABILITY THE PROBLEM

IS THAT THIS POTENTIAL LIFE IS

INSIDE SOMEONE ELSE'S BODY.

INSIDE A WOMAN'S BODY.

I DON'T FEEL IT IS APPROPRIATE

FOR ME THEN TO SIMPLY DICTATE TO

THAT PERSON --

YOU CAN SEE MORE OF THIS

INTERVIEW ANDRIA MITCHELL

DAVID BRODY'S VIEW ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

THE RACE IS TIGHTENING UP WITH

LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO.

REPORTER: WITH TONIGHT'S

DEBATE CENTERED ON DOMESTIC

ISSUES, PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL BE

ON THE DEFENSE TRYING TO EXPLAIN

HOW AN ECONOMY ABOVE EIGHT

PERCENT HAS BEGUN TO REBOUND

EVEN THOUGH SOME INDICATORS SHOW

IT SLOWING DOWN.

THEIR RUNNING MATES GOT INTO IT,

VICE PRESIDENT JOB BIDEN

ADMITTING THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS

BEEN BURIED.

HOW THEY CAN JUSTIFY RAISING

TAXES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS.

DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR PAUL

RYAN TO POUNCE ON THAT.

THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS BEEN

QUOTE, BURIED.

WE AGREE.

WE NEED TO STOP DIGGING AND

ELECT MITT ROMNEY.

THE 16 TRILLION DOLLAR

NATIONAL DEBT AND WHAT EACH

CANDIDATE WOULD DO WITH A TAX

SYSTEM.

ROMNEY WANTS ACROSS THE BOARD

TAX CUTS AND PRESIDENT OBAMA

WANTS TO RAISE TAXES ON THE

RICH.

MR. OBAMA MAY HAVE TO DEAL WITH

A JAB FROM ROMNEY ON THE,

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO ON THE DAILY

CALLER WEBSITE IN WHICH THEN

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MENTIONS

HIS GOOD FRIEND, CONTROVERSIAL

PREACHER, JEREMIAH WRIGHT.

I HAVE TO GIVE A SPECIAL

SHOUT OUT TO MY PASTOR, HE IS A

FRIEND AND A GREAT LEADER.

OBAMA TELLS THE AUDIENCE, MOSTLY

BLACK MINISTERS THAT THE L.A.

RIOTS AND HURRICANE KATRINA ARE

EXAMPLES OF AMERICA NOT CARING

ABOUT BLACKS.

THERE WAS AN E-MAIL TO REPORTERS

ENTITLED THAT WAS LAME AND

DESPERATION TACTICS.

LATEST RASMUSSEN POLL SHOWS

OBAMA LEADING 48-47 PERCENT

INSIDE THE MARGIN OF ERROR AND

OBAMA THE LEAD IN ELECTORAL

VOTES.

WITH ENOUGH VOTERS UNDECIDED OR

WILLING TO SWITCH, OUTCOME OF

THE THREE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES

COULD SWING THE RACE.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

A CHRISTIAN LEGAL GROUP HAS

FILED A LAWSUIT OVERTURNING A

LAW FOR PROFESSIONAL THERAPIES

TELL I

TELLI

TELLI

TELLING UNDERAGE THAT -- IT

MAKES YOU ANXIOUS AND CAUSES YOU

TO HATE YOURSELF. NAMING A

PLAINTIFF WHO SAYS HE BENEFITTED

FROM THE THERAPY AND A

PSYCHIATRIST AND WHO IS ALSO A

PASTOR.

THEY SAID IT VIOLATES THE FIRST

AMENDMENT RIGHT.

ABSOLUTELY CLAMPS DOWN ON

SPEECH BY THE PROFESSIONALS

INVOLVED.

ALSO THE MINORS AND PARENT'S

RIGHTS TO ACCESS PARTICULAR

TYPES OF THERAPY THEY MAY WANT.

CALIFORNIA IS THE ONLY STATE

TO BAN CONVERSION THERAPY.

COMING UP, AFTER HELPING TO

GET YOUCEF NADARKHANI RELEASED

FROM JAIL, HIS ATTORNEY IS NOW

BEHIND BARS.

WE'LL TELL YOU WHY.

THE LAWYER WHO HELPED FREE

IRANIAN PASTOR YOUCEF NADARKHANI

FINDS HIMSELF BEHIND BARS.

MOHAMMED ALI DADKHAH IS BEING

HELD IN IRAN'S MOST DANGEROUS

PRISONS.

DADKHAH WAS ABLE TO WORK OUT A

DEAL ALLOWING HIM TO CONTINUE

REPRESENTING THE PASTOR AND

AVOID JAIL TIME.

HOWEVER, IRAN HAS RETRACTED THE

DEAL AND ACLJ BELIEVES IT IS

BECAUSE THE INTERNATIONAL

SPOTLIGHT IS OFF THE CASE.

TIFFANY, WHY DO YOU BELIEVE IRAN

HAS IMPRISONED DADKHAH?

I THINK THE CURRENT

ENVIRONMENT IN IRAN IS VERY

DELICATE.

THERE IS A THREAT OF IMPENDING

WAR WITH ISRAEL.

IRAN AND REGIME IS ACTING

STRANGELY AND IN A SENSE OF

CHAOS, WE ARE SEEING SEVERAL

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES, THOSE THAT

ASCEND THOSE MINORITIES BEING

PICKED UP.

I THINK YOU NAILED SOMETHING

THAT ONCE PASTOR YOUCEF

NADARKHANI'S STORY STOPPED GET

THING SPOTLIGHT, DADKHAH WASN'T

PROTECTED ANYMORE.

I THINK THEY WERE REACTING TO

THAT TIMING.

IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING,

TIFFANY, THIS ATTORNEY HAS MADE

IT SOME WHAT OF A SPECIALTY TO

REPRESENT MINORITY RELIGIOUS

FAITHS IN IRAN.

IS IT YOUR HOPE HE MAY COME TO

FAITH ONE DAY HIMSELF?

ABSOLUTELY.

HE IS A MAN OF INTEGRITY AND

CHARACTERISTIC AND WORSHIPS WHO

HE THINKS THE LORD IS.

BUT HE HAS TAKEN A STRONG STANCE

FOR THE RELIGIOUS MINORITIES IN

IRAN.

HE HAS REPRESENTED OVER 20

CHRISTIANS WHO WERE BROUGHT UP

ON APOSTASY CHARGES AND BEEN

SUCCESSFUL IN EVERY ONE OF THOSE

CASES.

WHAT HAS MOTIVATED HIM TO DO

THAT?

HE BELIEVES IN HUMAN RIGHTS

AND A BETTER IRAN.

HE BELIEVES IT IS HIS DUTY TO

USE THE LAW TO SEEK JUSTICE.

WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS LIKE IN

THE PRISON WHERE HE IS LOCATED?

THE PRISON IS VERY NOTORIOUS

OF TORTURE.

WE HAVEN'T HEARD OF TORTURE

SENSE HE ENTERED THE PRISON ON

SATURDAY.

WHEN HIS FAMILY TALKED TO HIM,

HE HESITATED IN HIS ANSWER.

THAT OF COURSE CONCERNS US.

YOU HAVE TALKED TO HIS FAMILY,

IS THAT CORRECT? THAT IS

CORRECT.

THEY CALLED YOU THIS PASSED

WEEKEND?

THEY CALLED ME ON THE DAY OF

HIS ARREST.

HIS FAMILY SUPPORTS HIM IN ALL

THAT HE DOES.

REALLY A GREAT RESOURCE DURING

THE YOUCEF NADARKHANI SITUATION.

I AM GRATEFUL THEY CONTINUE TO

REACH OUT TO ME IN HOPES WE

WOULD STAND WITH HIM DURING HIS

PERSECUTION. I KNOW MANY

CHRISTIANS WILL PRAY FOR THIS

ATTORNEY FOR REPRESENTING OTHER

CHRISTIANS.

WELL, THAT IS OUR HOPE.

WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE PERSECUTED,

THERE ARE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN

AROUND THE WORLD.

ONLY A SELECT FEW THAT WILL

STAND IN COUNTRIES LIKE IRAN.

WE NEED TO STAND WITH THEM AS

WELL.

TIFFANY, THANK YOU FOR BEING

WITH US, WE APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

UP NEXT, CYBER SYSTEM SHUT

DOWN.

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF AMERICA'S

COMPLEX COMPUTER SYSTEM WAS

BROUGHT DOWN BY CYBER WARFARE.

WELCOME BACK, THE CRITICAL

INFRASTRUCTURE THAT KEEPS THIS

COUNTRY RUNNING IS SHOCKINGLY

VULNERABLE, NOT TO PHYSICAL

ATTACKS, BUT CYBER ATTACKS.

PAUL STRAND EXPLAINS IN

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT.

REPORTER: THESE DAYS, MUCH OF

WHAT KEEPS AMERICA POWERED UP

AND FUNCTIONING IS BY COMPLEX

SYSTEMS CALLED SKA TA.

SYSTEMS OF SYSTEMS.

ELECTRICAL GRID IS A SKA TA

SYSTEM.

AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM HAS A

SKA TA SYSTEM.

DAMS, RAILROAD SYSTEMS.

TONY SHAFER POINTS OUT SOME NINE

TRILLION DOLLARS A DAY RUNS

THROUGH AMERICA'S FINANCIAL

WORLD DEPENDENT ON THESE SKA TA

SYSTEMS.

IF YOU HAVE THE LIFE BLOOD OF

THE ECONOMY, YOU MAY WANT TO

THINK ABOUT HOW YOU PROTECT

THAT MOST OF THESE ARE

CONTROLLED BY CIVILIANS.

THERE IS A REAL WEAK LINK IN

AMERICA'S DEFENSES.

PEOPLE AREN'T TAKING THIS

SERIOUSLY.

IF A PART OF THE GRID IS

KNOCKED OUT, HACKERS MIGHT BE

ABLE TO LAUNCH SMALL CYBER

ATTACKS.

YOU HAVE A CASCADING SYSTEMS,

THE WHOLE COUNTRY GOES BLACK.

THEY DON'T WANT TO DESTROY

RICHES AND RESOURCES.

YOU DON'T WANT A LAW OF A

NUCLEAR BOMB IF YOU CAN DEFEAT

IT BY TAKING OUT POWER GRID AND

CONTROL MEASURES.

CHINESE HAVE COMPLEX PLANS TO

DO JUST THIS.

RUSSIANS, TOO.

THEY HAVE A TERM CALLED

INFRASTRUCTURE WARFARE.

CHINESE HAVE BEEN GOOD

DEVELOPING DOCTRINE BASED ON

OURS.

USING A FUNCTION CALL

CLASSICAL DEFEAT.

IF YOU BASICALLY TURN A

GENERATOR ON AND OFF RAPIDLY,

YOU ARE GOING TO DESTROY IT.

IF YOU CAN GET INSIDE OF HIS

WEB, YOU CAN DO THIS.

JAMES CAREAFANO AT THE

HERITAGE FOUNDATION DOUBTS IT

WOULD BE FOOL HEARTY ENOUGH TO

TAKE DOWN THE INTERNET.

FINE, WAL-MART CAN'T ORDER

GOODS FROM CHINA.

THERE IS A MUTUAL ASSURED

DESTRUCTION.

NO ONE CAN BE SURE OF NASTY

UNINTENDED DAMAGE FOR EXAMPLE,

STUCKS NET.

IT WAS A MALICIOUS SOFTWARE

SOMEBODY DID SPECIFICALLY

DESIGNED TO PENETRATE IRANIAN

FACILITIES.

IT WENT GLOBAL.

I DON'T THINK THE PEOPLE THAT

DESIGNED IT, THOUGHT IT WOULD.

IT WAS AN EGO TRIP FOR THE

HACKER, HE HAD CONTROL OF THAT

CITY SYSTEMS AND COULD DUMP RAW

SEWAGE INTO THE LAKE, ONE HACKER

BLOGGED ABOUT BREAKING INTO A

SOUTH SYSTEM IN NOVEMBER.

IT REQUIRED TO SKILL AND COULD

BE REPRODUCED BY A TWO YEAR OLD.

IT IS NOT BREAKING INTO A

SACK TARGET FOR BOMBERS.

A 15 YEAR OLD AND A FEW TOOLS

FROM ANY OTHER HACKER GROUP CAN

FIGURE IT OUT.

IMAGINE HOW EASY IT WOULD BE

FOR A SUPER POWER TO LAUNCH

DEVASTATING CYBER ATTACKS.

440 MILLION POINTS OF ENTRY.

SHAFER WORRIES THE AGENCY, THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

ISN'T COMP AT THE PRESENT TIME

ENOUGH TO GET THE JOB DONE.

A RECENT STUDY FOUND FIVE

PERCENT OF UTILITY HAS AS A MAIN

GOAL ON THEIR SKA TA SYSTEMS.

THIS IS BORDERING ON CRIMINALLY

GLEJT WHEN YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE

FOR OUR WATER, POWER GAS AND

OTHER SENSITIVE UTILITIES.

UP NEXT ON THE FOOTBALL

FIELD, AN UNUSUAL PLAY.

WHY ONE PASS HAS GAINED NATIONAL

ATTENTION FOR A HIGH SCHOOL

FOOTBALL TEAM.

FINALLY TONIGHT IF YOU ARE A

FOOTBALL FAN, YOU HAVE PROBABLY

HEARD OF TRICK PLAYS LIKE THE

STATUTE OF LIBERTY, HOOK AND

LADDER, FUMBLEROOSKI.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

MANY ARE CALLING IT THE BOUQUET

TOSS.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THE HOLDER TURNS AROUND,

ACTUALLY TOSSES THE FOOTBALL

MUCH LIKE A BRIDE WOULD.

THIS LUCKY RECIPIENT CAUGHT THE

BALL FOR A TWO-POINT CONVERSION

AND WON THE GAME FOR HIS TEAM.

I WAS NERVOUS, I KNEW IF I

MISSED THE SNAP UP, THE WHOLE

PLAY IS DEAD.

I AM '3".

ANY GIVEN FRIDAY, ANY GIVEN TEAM

CAN WIN.

AS LONG AS WE BELIEVE, WE STILL

MAKE IT POSSIBLE.

AMAZING, IT MAY NOT BE LUCK.

THE TEAM HAD BEEN PRACTICING THE

PLAY FOR QUITE A WHILE.

THE TEAM DOESN'T CALL IT A

BOUQUET TOSS.

WE'LL JUST CALL IT A WINNER.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR JOINING US, WE'LL SEE

YOU NEXT TIME.

GOOD NIGHT.
