FINGER POINTING.

THEIR RESPONSE HAS BEEN

TENNESSEE SENATOR BOB CORKER IS

BACK AFTER MEETING WITH

INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS ON THE

GROUND,HE TELLS CBN NEWS, THERE

IS NO DOUBT THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION CONTINUED TO

BLAME IT ON A RIOT POSTED ONLINE

ABOUT THE MUSLIM PROPHET,

MOHAMMED.

THERE WERE NO PROTESTS, NEVER

WERE PROTESTS.

THEN ABOUT 45 MINUTES TO 50

MINUTES LATER, THE MORTERS

STARTED COMING IN AND ALL BROKE

LOOSE, OBVIOUSLY, WE LOST FOUR

AMERICAN LIVES.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SAYS

THEY HAVE BEEN STRAIGHTFORWARD

AND DENIES KNOWING ABOUT REQUEST

FOR MORE SECURITY AT THE

CONSULATE.

WE DIDN'T KNOW THEY WANTED

MORE SECURITY.

PRESIDENT'S SECRETARY OF

STATE BACKED UP ON THE EVE ON

THE SECOND PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.

PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT

WOULDN'T BE KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT

SECURITY OFFICIALS MADE BY

INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS.

THEY WILL PUSH THE SENATE TO

SECURE HOW THE U.S. -- A PLACE

HE CALL AS FRONTIER, JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

NOW WE HAVE INFORMATION

WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE ATTACK,

CIA IN LIBYA TOLD WASHINGTON IT

HAD EVIDENCE THAT THE ATTACK WAS

CARRIED OUT BY TERRORIST AND NOT

A MOB BY AN ANIT-ISLAMIC MOVIE.

CONGRESS IS WORKING WITH THE

CIA TO FIND OUT WHO KNEW WHAT

AND WHEN.

FROM BEIRUT, GARY LANE REPORTS,

THE VIOLENCE IS ESCALATING INTO

A REGIONAL WAR.

TURKEY INTERCEPTS AN ARMENIAN

PLANE SAYING IT WAS CARRYING

RUSSIAN WEAPONS BOUND FOR SYRIA.

FIGHTING BETWEEN REBELS AND

SYRIAN GOVERNMENT SPILLS OVER

THE BORDER INTO TURKEY.

TURKEY IS A MEMBER NATO AND

ESCALATING EFFORTS OPPOSE THE

REGIME.

TURKEY HAS WARNED THEY COULD

STORM DAMASCUSS IN HOURS.

IT IS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY

FOR TURKEY TO PLAY A ROLE.

IT OPENS A DOOR FOR TURKEY TO

PLAY A HERO WITH THE MAJORITY.

THAT WILL BE FIGHTING FOR THE

FUTURE OF SYRIA.

AND PERHAPS ADVANCING EFFORTS

THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST.

TURKEY ISN'T THE ONLY

NEIGHBORING COUNTRY, SYRIA HAS

ATTACKED REBEL POSITIONS ACROSS

THE BORDER IN JORDAN AND

LEBANON.

IT MAY SPILL OVER THE BORDER

INTO LEBANON, AND ONCE AGAIN

THIS COUNTRY WOULD BE EMBROILED

IN THE CIVIL WAR.

HEZBOLLAH MOVEMENT CONTROLS

THE LEBANESE GOVERNMENT.

MILITIA IS WELL ARMED.

MOST LEBANESE SUNNI MUSLIMS

OPPOSE HEZBOLLAH.

MIDDLE EAST ANALYST WALLID FAR

RIS.

THE QUESTION IS WHO IS GOING

TO BE PROTECTING THEM, LEBANESE

ARMY. FARRIS SAYS THE

LEBANESE ARMEY IS UNLIKELY TO

PROTECT BECAUSE IT IS UNDER THE

INFLUENCE.

MANY LEBANESE SUNNIS WOULD LIKE

TO LEVEL THE SCORE AND GROUPS

INVOLVED IN THE ADMINISTRATION

AND STRONG TACTICS.

IT IS A LESSON NOT FORGOTTEN BY

ANYONE.

TWO REGIONAL POWERS PACKING

SIDES TURKEY AND IRAN HAVE

EXPRESSED INITIAL SUPPORT FOR A

CEASE FIRE.

IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER BOTH THE

REGIME AND THE REBELS FIGHTING

AGAINST HIM WOULD AGREE AND

HONOR A TRUCE.

GARY LANE CBN CAB NEWS, BEIRUT.

YOU HAVE A HEART FOR COVERING

CHRISTIANS CAUGHT IN THE CROSS

FIRE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS IF THE

REGION CONTINUES TO DESTABILIZE?

NOT GOOD.

AS THIS WAR IN SYRIA IS

PROLONGED, THEY WILL BE SEEN BY

THE SUNNI MAJORITY AS ALIGNING

THEMSELVES WITH ASSAD AND

REGIME, THE AEILLO WHITE

MINORITY IN SYRIA.

THEY ARE TORN BETWEEN DO WE

SUPPORT THE AEILLO WHITE AND

BASHAR ASSAD REGIME SO MANY MADE

UP OF AL-QAEDA TYPES.

CHRISTIANS ARE CAUGHT IN

BETWEEN.

THEY SIDE WITH ASSAD AND FREE

SYRIAN ARMY COMES AFTER THIS

THEM.

WHAT DO THEY DO?

YOU JUST GOT BACK FROM

BEIRUT.

FIRST TIME IN FOUR YEARS

LEBANON'S CHIEF INTELLIGENCE

OFFICER DEAD.

HE WAS CLOSE TO RAFIK, THE

PRIME MINISTER THAT WAS

ASSASSINATED.

CAME UP WITH MEMBERS OF

HEZBOLLAH BEING INVOLVED.

A VOCAL CRITIC OF THE SYRIAN

REGIME.

HE HAS BEEN ROUNDING UP THE

PEOPLE IN LEBANON.

FOR THAT HE PAID WITH HIS LIFE.

IT HAPPENED IN A NEIGHBORHOOD IN

BEIRUT ASROFIA AT STARBUCKS

RIGHT THERE.

WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS FOR

ISRAEL?

WE ARE SEEING HOW HEZBOLLAH

AND IRAN ARE TRYING TO DRAW THEM

INTO CONFLICT.

JUST LAST WEEK THERE WAS A DRONE

SHOT DOWN BY SYRIA.

IT WAS AN IRANIAN DRONE.

THEY ARE TRYING TO DRAW ISRAEL

IN ON THIS.

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO HEAR

FROM THE PRESIDENT AND GOVERNOR

ROMNEY THEY NEED TO GIVE A

VISION FOR THE FUTURE.

WHAT IS YOUR STRATEGY?

HOW DOES IT DIFFER, MR. ROMNEY

FROM THE PRESIDENT.

MR. PRESIDENT, WHAT ARE YOU

GOING TO DO DIFFERENTLY?

TERRIFIC.

GLAD YOU ARE BACK SAFELY.

GARY LANE, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

INSIGHTS.

PAKISTANI TEENAGER SHOT IN THE

HEAD BY THE TALIBAN IS STANDING

FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE

ATTACK.

MALALA YOUSAFZAI IS NOT OUT OF

THE WOODS YET BUT MAKING SOLID

PROGRESS.

SHE WAS STANDING WITH HELP

FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS MORNING.

COMMUNICATING FREELY.

SHE IS WRITING.

THAT IS GOOD NEWS.

THE 15 YEAR OLD IS ABLE TO

COMMUNICATE THROUGH WRITING.

DOCTORS SAY THE BIGGEST CONCERN

IS INFECTION.

GIRL WAS SHOT FOR ADVOCATING FOR

FEMALE EDUCATION AND SPEAKING

OUT AGAINST THE TALIBAN.

COURTROOM VICTORY FOR ONE TEXAS

HIGH SCHOOL.

CHEER LEADERS WANT TO DISPLAY

BIBLE VERSES ON BANNERS.

THE POLICY AGAINST THE BANNERS

VIOLATES FREE SPEECH RIGHTS.

HIGH SCHOOL CHEER LEADERS IN

TEXAS SCORE A VICTORY IN THEIR

FIGHT FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

A STATE ISSUE JUDGE ISSUED AN

INJUNCTION ALLOWING THEM TO KEEP

DISPLAYING THE BIBLE VERSES.

REBECCA RICHARDSON IS ONE OF THE

SCHOOL'S 18 CHEER LEADERS.

SHE SAYS IT IS WORTH GOING TO

COURT.

I FEEL GOOD.

A HUGE WEIGHT HAS BEEN LIFTED

OFF MY SHOULDERS.

SCHOOL OFFICIALS THE GIRL

COULDN'T DISPLAY AFTER AN

ATHEIST GROUP COMPLAINED.

IT IS INDIVIDUAL FREE SPEECH

RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUAL CHEER

LEADERS RATHER THAN A SPONSORED

SCHOOL EVENT.

IF YOU ARE A STUDENT, YOU ARE

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

WE HAVE AN EXAMPLE OF

STUDENT-LED FREE SPEECH.

IT IS COMPLETELY PROTECTED BY

THE CONSTITUTION.

WE THINK IT IS STRONG

SUPPORT.

THE GOVERNOR WEIGHED IN AND

THOUGHT THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT

SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN THE SCHOOL

DISTRICTS IN TEXAS.

ALL THINGS WHICH ARE

IMPOSSIBLE WITH MEN ARE POSSIBLE

WITH GOD.

THE RADICAL ISLAMIST GROUP

BOKO HARAM MAYBE THE SOURCE OF

VIOLENCE AGAINST CHINESE WORKERS

IN NIGERIA.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SAY A MAN

WORKER IN THE NORTHEAST PART OF

THE COUNTRY.

ONLY TWO WEEKS AFTER ANOTHER

CHINESE MAN WAS MURDERED NEARBY.

THE GROUP HAS YET TO CLAIM

RESPONSIBILITY.

ONE MAN MAKING HISTORY IN THE

WORLD'S LARGEST COUNTRY.

A POWERFUL POSITION IN

INDONESIA.

LUCILLE TALUSAN HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: CBN NEWS FIRST TOLD

YOU ABOUT BASUKI PURNAMA BID FOR

VICE GOVERNOR OF JAKARTA BACK IN

SEPTEMBER DESPITE OPPOSITION FOR

MUSLIM GROUP.

HE WON THAT ELECTION BECOMING

THE FIRST CHRISTIAN TO WIN SUCH

A HIGH POST IN THE CAPITOL CITY.

THIS WEEK HE WAS SWORN IN, EVEN

THOUGH SOME MUSLIMS TRIED TO

PREVENT IT.

BASUKI PURNAMA CEREMONY WAS

DELAYED BY HARD LINE RS WHO

DEMONSTRATED.

HE WILL HOLD POSITIONS IN EIGHT

ISLAMIC BODIES IN THE CAPITOL.

THEY BELIEVE HE IS NOT CAPABLE

OF LEADING THEM BECAUSE HE IS

CHRISTIAN.

RELIGION IS OUR OWN PRIVATE

MATTER.

I RESPECT THE IDENTITY OF EVERY

RELIGION ETHNICITY AND GROUP.

BASUKI PURNAMA, WHO IS ALSO

ETHNIC CHINESE IS KNOWN FOR

CLEAN AND HONEST LEADERSHIP.

REFORMATION I'LL BE DOING IS

ENFORCING TRANSPARENT SI AND

SERVANT HOOD IN WHAT WE ARE

DOING AS PUBLIC OFFICIALS.

PURNAMA IS BORN AGAIN.

I BELIEVE THIS IS GOD'S DESTINY

FOR HIM.

I AM CONFIDENT NOW MY CHILDREN

WILL HAVE A GOOD FUTURE UNDER

HIS LEADERSHIP.

HE CAN EVEN BE THE NEXT

PRESIDENT OF INDONESIA THIS IS

A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR A

CHRISTIAN LIKE HIM TO BRING

REFORM TO THE NATION.

LUCILLE TALUSAN, CBN NEWS,

JAKARTA.

UP NEXT, SHOW DOWN IN THE

LONE STAR STATE.

SEE HOW DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS ARE PULLING OUT THE

BIG GUNS IF THE LATINO VOTE.

WELCOME BACK TO THE

BROADCAST, TEXAS HAS A LOT OF

VOTERS TO WIN OVER.

NOW MANY POLITICIANS ARE

FOCUSSING ON ONE GROUP,

HISPANICS, PART OF A DEMOGRAPHIC

THAT COULD HAVE AN IMPACT ON

POLITICIANS.

HEATHER SELLS HAS TONIGHT'S

FOCUS REPORT.

FACE OF TEXAS THIS YEAR AT

THE NATIONAL CONVENTIONS LATINO.

FOR THE REPUBLICANS, SENATE

CANDIDATE TED CRUISE AND

DEMOCRATS MAYOR JULIO CASTRO OF

SAN ANTONIO.

[ FOREIGN SPEAKING ].

THE NATION'S FIRST CONGRESSIONAL

DEBATE IN SPANISH.

LOCATION, SAN ANTONIO'S 23RD

DISTRICT.

A BATTLEGROUND FOR BOTH PARTIES.

NEW THIS IS ONE OF THE DISTRICT

THAT IS WILL MAKE OR BREAK EACH

PARTY. TEXAS WILL SOON BE A

DEMOGRAPHIC.

HISPANICS MAKE UP 38 PERCENT

RIGHT BEHIND WHITES AT 45

PERCENT.

BY 2040, LATINOS WILL POISED

TO BE THE MAJORITY FOR BOTH

POLITICAL PARTIES A NO FAIL

STRATEGY TO WIN OVER THIS

EMERGING FORCE.

IT IS A MATTER OF

PARTICIPATING MORE THAN EVER.

EMMANUEL MA DENA IS THE

CHAIRMAN OF THE POLITICAL PARTY

IN BEAR COUNTY.

HE VIEWS LATINOS AS A RELIABLE

BASE.

PROBLEM NO. 1, MANY HISPANICS

CAN'T CAST A BALLOT.

POLITICAL ANALYST LIKE MARK

LOPEZ SAYS THEIR POLITICAL POWER

WON'T BE REALIZED FOR DECADES.

ONLY 42 PERCENT OF HISPANICS

ARE 18 YEARS OR OLDER AND ALSO A

U.S. CITIZEN.

MANY REGISTERED HISPANIC

VOTERS SIMPLY DON'T TURN OUT TO

VOTE.

IN TEXAS, THE RACE IS ON TO WIN

OVER THIS GROUP BECAUSE OF

GROWING NUMBERS AND WHAT THE

STATE CONTROLS.

FOR NEW U.S. HOUSE SEATS FOR A

TOTAL OF 36 AND FOUR NEW

ELECTORAL VOTES FOR A TOTAL OF

38.

THAT GIVES THE LOAN START STATE

A LARGE SAY IN NATIONAL POLITIC

AND TEXAS LATINOS SERIOUS

LEVERAGE.

IN SAN ANTONIO, THE FUTURE IS

ALREADY HERE.

LATINOS MAKE UP 63 PERCENT OF

THE POPULATION AND POLITICAL

POWER IS EVIDENT ON WHAT SEEMS

LIKE EVERY CAMPAIGN SIGN AROUND

TOWN.

SAN ANTONIO HAS A PROUD

DEMOCRATIC PARTY HERITAGE

STARTING WITH FIRST HISPANIC --

REPUBLICANS HAVE BEGUN A

STRATEGY THE STATE GOP MAY WANT

TO EMBRACE. THE CITY OF ST.

ANTHONY ARE CONSERVATIVE.

DAVID ROSA IS THE DAVID AND

GOLIATH.

MANY HISPANICS ARE NATURAL

CONSERVATIVES AND BELIEVES THE

GOP CAN MAKE ADVANCED.

DO I BELIEVE THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY WILL GROW?

YES.

HERE WE ARE.

WE ARE CALLING OURSELVES THE

SUPER 8.

THEY ARE EIGHT HISPANIC

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES IN BEAR

COUNTY.

THEY ARE HISTORIC.

COUNTY HAS NEVER HAD MORE THAN

TWO HISPANIC REPUBLICANS ON THE

BALLOT.

BEST WAY IN BEAR COUNTY IS TO

DO WHAT WE ARE DOING AND SEARCH

OUT, IDENTIFY CANDIDATES LIKE

MYSELF WILLING TO RESTORE THE

FOCUS ON THE REPUBLICAN VALUES

WHILE AT THE SAME TIME BEING

OPEN ABOUT OUR HERITAGE.

THESE CANDIDATES ARGUE THAT

MANY ARE ALIGNED WITH THE GOP.

WHEN GOD IS BOOED AND TALK

ABOUT ABORTION ON DEMAND, THOSE

ARE HISPANIC VALUES, THEY ARE

NOT.

WILL HISPANICS BEGIN TO SHED

THEIR POLITICAL TRADITIONS?

WILL THE STATE GOP COMMIT TO

COURTING THIS UP AND COMING

GROUP?

DEMOCRATS HAVE THEIR DOUBTS.

HALF THEIR LEADERSHIP SAYS

THEY ARE REACHING OUT TO

HISPANIC COMMUNITY, THE OTHER

HALF THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT HALF

IS TRYING TO CLOSE DOORS.

TEXAS GOP LEADERSHIP IS

BEGINNING TO TALK THE TALK.

IF DAVID ROSA'S CAMPAIGN IS ANY

INDICATION, MANY GRASS ROOTS

TEXAS REPUBLICANS ARE WILLING TO

REACH A CONSTITUENCY BOTH SIDES

REALIZE IS THE MAKE IT BREAK IT

VOTING BLOCK OF THE FUTURE.

REPORTING IN SAN ANTONIO,

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL IS OFTEN A

VICIOUS PLACE, THURSDAY NIGHT

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND GOVERNOR

ROMNEY PUT POLITICS ASIDE FOR

THE SAKE OF COMEDY AND CHARITY.

ONLY JOKES WERE ALLOWED.

AS SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE

NOTICED A LOT MORE ENERGY IN THE

SECOND DEBATE, I WAS WELL RESTED

AFTER THE NICE LONG NAP DURING

THE FIRST DEBATE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND I HAVE

SOMEONE IN OUR CORNER WE CAN

LEAN ON, I HAVE MY BEAUTIFUL

WIFE,ANN, HE HAS BILL CLINTON.
