TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" THE

FINAL DEBATE.

FOREIGN POLICY TAKES CENTER

STAGE.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THE

CANDIDATES TONIGHT IN FLORIDA?

PLUS RESTORING A SYMBOL.

HOW A WINDMILL PROJECT IS

STRENGTHENING BONDS IN ISRAEL.

JOBLESSNESS IN AMERICA.

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE MAYBE

DROPPING.

THAT ISN'T TELLING THE ENTIRE

STORY.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." IT IS ROUND THREE

FOR THE CANDIDATES, GOOD EVENING

I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

AFTER MONTHS OF CAMPAIGNING AND

ENDLESS TV ADS, THIS IS THE LAST

DEBATE FOCUSSING ON FOREIGN

POLICY.

COMES AS SOME VOTERS ARE

STILL MAKING UP THEIR MINDS.

EFREM GRAHAM REPORTS.

REPORTER: MOST SURVEYS FIND

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MITT ROMNEY

IN A TIGHT RACE.

RASMUSSEN REPORT GIVES ROMNEY 49

PERCENT TO THE PRESIDENT'S 47

PERCENT AMONG LIKELY VOTERS.

GALLOP POLL GAVE THE CHALLENGER

52-45.

GALLOP HAS PREDICTED ALL BUT

THREE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACES

STRETCHING BACK TO 1936.

SUNDAY SQUARING OFF ON TOP

ISSUES LIKE IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

IRAN THINKS THEY CAN GO MUCH

FASTER.

TODAY THEY ARE CLOSER THAN EVER

TO A NUCLEAR CAPABILITY.

THAT IS UNFORTUNATE.

THE TABLES ARE TURNED.

IN BUILDING A COALITION AND

FORCING NOW, A SET OF SANCTIONS

EUROPE WOULD NEVER CONSIDERED

THREE AND A HALF YEARS AGO,

IRAN'S ECONOMY IS ON ITS KNEES.

ON GOING CONFLICT IN SYRIA.

U.S. FOREIGN POLICY WITH POLICY

AND OF COURSE, THE DEATH OF

OSAMA BIN LADEN.

MORE ATTENTION EXPECTED TO GO TO

SEPTEMBER 11 ATTACK ON THE U.S.

CONSULATE IN LIBYA.

IT TOOK THE PRESIDENT 14 DAYS

BEFORE HO CALLED THE ATTACK IN

BENGHAZI AN ACT ON TERROR.

GET THE TRANSCRIPT.

A FAILED NATIONAL SECURITY

STRATEGY.

IF YOU LEFT IT UP TO THE

ADMINISTRATION WE WOULD STILL BE

TOLD THERE WAS NO RIOT.

I AM TOTALLY CONVINCED THIS IS

GOING TO GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS

ONE OF THE MOST MAJOR BREAK

DOWNS OF NATIONAL SECURITY IN A

LONG TIME.

IT IS A TOPIC THAT HAS BEEN

PUT ON THE BACK BURNER THIS

SEASON.

EXPERTS SAY VOTERS REMAIN MORE

CONCERNED ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND

OTHER DOMESTIC ISSUES.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS

"NEW YORK TIMES" BROKE A

STORY OVER THE WEEKEND BOTH IRAN

AND WHITE HOUSE DENY REPORTS,

BUT WOULD BE OPEN TO ONE ON ONE

TALKS WITH IRAN.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU DENIES

KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT A MEETING

BETWEEN U.S. AND IRAN.

ISRAEL DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT

THESE CONTACTS.

I CAN'T CONFIRM THEY HAVE TAKEN

PLACE.

I CAN SAY IRAN HAS USED THE

TALKS AND NEGOTIATIONS WITH FIVE

POWERS TO DRAG ITS FEET AND GAIN

TIME TO ADVANCE NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM.

SOME IN THE ISRAELI MEDIA

SPECULATE THE TIMING OF THE

STORY WAS MEANT TO SILENCE MITT

ROMNEY'S CRITICISM OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S IRAN POLICY.

ROMNEY HAS ACCUSED PRESIDENT

OBAMA FOR BEING TOO SOFT.

DAVID, A LOT OF POLITICAL

ATTENTION HAS BEEN ON IRAN.

HOW IS THAT GOING TO PLAY OUT?

HUGE, LEE.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ROMNEY TO

TALK ABOUT MAHMOUD AHMADENIJAD

AND IRAN GETTING A NUCLEAR

WEAPON.

THAT HAPPEN TROTTED OUT THERE

MANY TIMES BEFORE.

I THINK FOR ROMNEY, TONIGHT,

SOME HOW BRING BACK TO GREEN

REVOLUTION IN 2009 WHEN THE

YOUNG IRANIANS WERE TAKING TO

THE STREETS THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION WAS SILENT DURING

THAT TIME.

IF HE IS ABLE TO WEAVE A

NARRATIVE BETWEEN WHAT HAPPENED

IN IRAN IN 2009 AND SYRIA OR

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SYRIA RIGHT

NOW, ONCE NGUYEN REVOLUTION,

THAT IS MORE EFFECTIVE FOR

ROMNEY TO SAY WHERE IS THE OBAMA

MINUTE BEEN WHEN IT COMES TO

CRIES FOR FREEDOM FROM THAT PART

OF THE WORLD.

A LOT OF THAT PART IN THE

ATTACK ON THE CONSULATE.

SOME SAY MITT ROMNEY MISSED A

CHANCE TO TAKE ON THE PRESIDENT

OVER THAT ISSUE.

DO YOU THINK HE WILL REATTEMPT

THAT TONIGHT?

THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS FOR MITT

ROMNEY.

IF HE REATTACKS IT ONLY ONCE,

THAT IS GOOD.

IF HE REATTEMPTS IT TWO OR THREE

TIMES, THAT IS NOT GOOD.

HE WAS NOT COHERENT IN TERMS OF

HOW HE TRIED TO PIN THE

PRESIDENT DOWN.

WHAT THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN NEEDS

TO DO IS CREATE A SIMPLE TIME

LINE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

NOT FOR THE PRESIDENT OR THE

WHITE HOUSE OR THE AUDIENCE IN

THE HALL.

FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO MOVE

PEOPLE ACROSS THAT TIME LINE, TO

EXPLAIN WHY THE ADMINISTRATION

WAS LACKS.

HE HAS TO MAKE IT SIMPLE.

IT CAN BE A TAD BUT COMPLICATED

AND GET INTO THE MA MEN KNEW

SHA.

DAVID, THERE IS NO QUESTION

THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL WAS

FIGHTY.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE

EVEN FEISTIER.

FOREIGN POLICY BRINGS UP A LOT

OF RAW EMOTION.

THE APOLOGIZER IN CHIEF

NARRATIVE.

YOU ARE GOING TO GET A LOT OF

THAT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA TALK ABOUT HEY,

LOOK, I GOT OSAMA BIN LADEN, ASK

HIM HOW MY FOREIGN POLICY IS

DOING, OH WAIT, HE IS NOT ALIVE

TO ANSWER.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS THAT READY.

MITT ROMNEY HAS TO BE READY.

THE FIREWORKS ARE GOING TO BE

INTENSE.

MITT ROMNEY CAN BRING UP THE

ECONOMY AND BELIEVE ME, HE WILL

AS IT RELATES TO AMERICA'S

STANDING IN THE WORLD FROM A

FOREIGN POLICY PERSPECTIVE, IT

WILL BE A WINNING NIGHT.

IT WILL BE TRICKY.

DAVID, ENJOY YOUR UP CLOSE

VIEW OF IT.

YOU CAN CHECK OUT DAVID'S BLOG

"THE BRODY FILE" ON OUR WEBSITE

TIME FOR ELECTION DAY.

REPORTER: PUMP WATCHERS SAY HAS

DRIVERS REDUCE THE DEMAND, WE

SHOULD SEE RELIEF.

SUPPLY IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN

INCREASING EQUALS LOWER PRICES.

HOW LOW?

PERHAPS $.50 BY FEBRUARY.

THAT IS WELCOME NEWS FOR

CASH-STRAPPED DRIVERS.

$.50 IS SIGNIFICANT.

HIGH PRICE OF GAS HAS LITERALLY

BEEN A TOPIC OF DEBATE.

ENERGY SECRETARY STEPHEN

SCHULTZ SAYS IT IS NOT HIS

POLICY TO LOWER GAS PRICES.

DO YOU AGREE THIS IS NOT THE JOB

OF THE ENERGY DEPARTMENT?

PRESIDENT OBAMA STRESSED

LOWER PRICES AS A KEY.

ULTIMATELY THAT IS HOW WE ARE

GOING TO REDUCE DEMAND AND THAT

IS WHAT IS GOING TO KEEP GAS

PRICES LOWER.

GOVERNOR ROMNEY SAYS THE

HIKES ARE FUELLED BY RESTRICTIVE

POLICIES.

IF YOU ARE PAYING LESS THAN A

YEAR OR TWO AGO WHY ISN'T THE

STRATEGY WORKING.

WHEN THE PRESIDENT TOOK OFFICE

IT WAS $1.86 A GALLON NOW IT IS

$4 A GALLON.

GASBUDDY.COM WRITES THERE IS

NO MAGIC SPIKET.

MYTH OR NO MYTH FORECAST ARE

MOST WELCOMED IN CALIFORNIA,

HE LEARNED TO HATE IT WHILE

WAGING IT.

GARY LANE HAS MORE ON THIS AT

THE GLOBAL LANE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

COMING UP, A SIGN OF HOPE FOR

ISRAEL.

HOW RESTORING A WINDMILL IS

HELPING JOIN PEOPLE TOGETHER IN

ISRAEL.

THE HEAD OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD'S POLITICAL PARTY

SAYS SAAD AL-KATATNY WAS E

ELECTRICED ELECTED TO LEAD THE

PARTY.

IT IS HIS FIRST STEP IN

ACHIEVING HIS GOAL.

THEIR POLITICAL PROJECT WILL BE

A WISE GOVERNMENT THAT WILL

INSTITUTE ISLAMIC SHARIA LAW.

EARLIER THIS MONTH, EGYPTIAN

CHRISTIANS GATHERED FOR AN

URGENT TIME OF FASTING AND

PRAYER CALLING ON GOD FOR

PROTECTION.

HERE IS SOMETHING YOU DON'T SEE

IN THE MUSLIM DOMINATED MEAD.

TEN THOUSAND GATHERED FROM 10:00

A.M.-8:00 P.M. ESTIMATED TWO

MILLION PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE

WORLD WATCHED THE EVENT ONLINE

AS WELL.

IN ISRAEL, CHRISTIANS HELPING TO

BRING HOPE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE

BY GIVING NEW LIFE TO AN OLD

WIND MEAL.

THIS WIND MEAL HAS BEEN A

JERUSALEM LANDMARK FOR MORE THAN

150 YEARS AND NOW IT IS WORKING

AGAIN THANKS TO A TEAM EFFORT.

THE JERUSALEM FOUNDATION, A

GROUP OF DUTCH CHRISTIANS PAID

FOR THE RESTORATION WORK.

THAT PROMPTED PRAISE FOR

CHRISTIAN ZIONIST FROM PRIME

MINISTER NETANYAHU.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE

JEWISH STATE AND MODERN ZIONISM

WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT

CHRISTIAN ZIONISM.

THE MANY CHRISTIAN SUPPORTERS OF

THE REBIRTH OF THE STATE IN THE

19TH CENTURY MADE POSSIBLE.

SIR MOSES FUURORY ESTABLISHED

IT OUTSIDE THE OLD CITY WALLS IN

THE MID 1800S.

THIS IS THE REBIRTH OF THE

JERUSALEM. HIS GREAT, GREAT

NEPHEW IS A HISTORIAN AND

AUTHOR.

THIS WINDMILL OUTSIDE THE

GATES START ALL THE SUBURBS

AROUND THE OLD CITY WALL AND

GREW INTO THE HUGE CITY OF

JERUSALEM. JEWISH FIGHTERS

USED THE WINDMILL TO DEFEND THE

CITY.

THE BRITISH BLEW UP THE TOP

OF THE WINDMILL.

IT WAS LATER RESTORED FOR LOOKS

BUT NEVER WORKED.

I THINK ONE DAY WE HAVE TO

GIVE NEW LIFE TO THE MILL.

THEY INITIATED THE PROJECT

AND GOT OTHERS INVOLVED.

IT IS GOD'S PLAN TO REPAIR,

RESTORE THE WINDMILL.

HE STUDIED OLD PHOTOS THAT

TOOK ABOUT THREE MONTHS.

YOU DO A RECONSTRUCTION.

SHAFTS AND MACHINERY WILL BE

INSTALLED TO GRIND FLOUR AS THE

MILL DID FOR THE FIRST 120

20 YEARS.

PERSONALLY, I AM CONVINCED

THIS MILL ASK A SIGN OF HOPE FOR

THE JEWISH PEOPLE HERE IN

ISRAEL.

IT IS CONNECTED TO THE

RESURRECTION OF THE STATE OF

ISRAEL AFTER 2,000 YEARS.

JULIE STALL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

UP NEXT, UNDEREMPLOYMENT, THE

LESS TALKED ABOUT JOB PROBLEM

MANY AMERICANS ARE FACING.

THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE MAYBE

FALLING, THAT DOESN'T MEAN THE

OUTLOOK FOR JOBS IS GETTING

BETTER.

MANY PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN UP AND

DROPPED OUT OF THE WORK FORCE.

NEW OTHERS ARE GETTING BY WITH

PART TIME JOBS IN TONIGHT'S

FOCUS REPORT, CHARLENE ISRAEL

BRINGS US THE STORY OF ONE MAN

THAT IS FINDING HOPE.

REPORTER: FOR 30 YEARS, GLEN

WORKED AS AN EXPERIENCED SOUGHT

AFTER HOME BUILDER.

REMODELLING WITH A COMPANY IN

D.C. FROM THERE FRAMING HOUSES,

SUPERVISION AND THAT KIND OF

THING.

THINGS CHANGED WHEN THE

HOUSING MARKET CRASHED.

WE FOUND OURSELVES WITH A

BUNCH OF HOUSES THAT COULDN'T

SELL.

WE HAD TO GO AHEAD AND BACK OFF

OF BUILDING.

IT WAS A DIFFICULT TIME.

SO BAD GLEN WAS LAID OFF,

PUTTING HIM OUT OF A JOB FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN HIS ADULT LIFE.

IT WAS DIFFICULT IN THAT YOU

FEEL LIKE SOMEONE HAS PULLED THE

CARPET OUT FROM UNDERNEATH YOU.

YOUR WHOLE WORLD SHIFTS.

WE ENDED UP HAVING TO SELL THE

HOUSE AND MOVED INTO AN

APARTMENT.

GLEN HAS MOVED A TOTAL OF 12

IN THE 6 YEARS SINCE LOSING HIS

JOB.

I HAVE WORKED FOR A COUPLE OF

EMPLOYEES SINCE THE LAY OFF,

MOST HAS BEEN IN REMODELING.

THEY HAVE HAD WORK AND THEN

DRIED UP, THERE IS NO WORK AND

HAD TO LAY OFF.

I HAVE HAD THAT HAPPENED TWICE.

THE 55 YEAR OLD REPRESENTS --

A NON-PROFIT ADVOCACY GROUP IN

VIRGINIA.

IT HAS HIT 18-29 YEAR OLDS

PARTICULARLY HARD.

RECENT COLLEGE GRADUATES HAVE

A TOUGH TIME FINDING WORK.

NEARLY 50 PERCENT ARE

UNEMPLOYED OR UNDEREMPLOYED.

THEY ARE HAVING TO SETTLE FOR

JOBS THAT DON'T REQUIRE THAT

DEGREE AND COMPETE AGAINST

WORKERS THAT HAVE MASTERS

DEGREES THAT ARE SETTLING FOR

JOBS.

THE PICTURE IS WORSE FOR

THOSE THAT ARE LONG TERM

EMPLOYEE, THOSE OUT OF WORK FOR

SEVEN WEEKS TOTAL FIVE MILLION

PEOPLE.

JOBLESS REPORT JOBLESS

DROPPED TO 7.8 PERCENT.

THERE ARE JOB FAIRS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

GAS PRICES CONTINUE TO RISE

AND FOOD PRICES.

JUST TO LIVE ON DAY-TO-DAY BASIS

CAN BE DIFFICULT.

CON WAY SAYS THE LOWER

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE POINTS TO A

BIGGER PROBLEM.

MORE PEOPLE ARE DROPPING OUT

OF THE WORK FORCE.

MANY OF THOSE GIVING UP ARE

OLDER.

NUMBER OF PEOPLE 55 AND UP

WITHOUT A JOB OR UNDEREMPLOYED

IS GROWING DESPITE YEARS OF

EXPERIENCE, OLDER LAID OFF

WORKERS COMPETE FOR THE SAME

JOBS AS YOUNGER JOB SEEKERS.

MAURICE'S RESUME INCLUDES TWO

MASTERS DEGREES.

AFTER 10 YEARS AT LOCKHEED AERO

SPACE HE RECEIVED A PINK SLIP.

I AM NOW IN A HOMELESS

SHELTER.

FRUSTRATED MORE AND MORE

PEOPLE ARE SETTLING FOR WORK.

WHAT IS GOING ON, THEY ARE IN

A JOB THEY HAVE TAKEN BECAUSE

THEY HAD TO THAT IS BELOW THEIR

SKILL LEVEL AND BELOW EARNING'S

POTENTIAL.

THAT IS A MAJOR ISSUE GOING ON.

♪♪♪

YOU ARE THE HOPE TO THE HOPELESS

AND BROKEN.

MEANWHILE HE NEEDS A STABLE

JOB.

YOU ARE HOPEFUL IN THAT OKAY,

LORD, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE IN

FRONT OF ME.

YOU KNOW WHAT MY NEEDS ARE.

I AM HOPEFUL HE IS GOING TO

SUPPLY ALL MY NEEDS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT AN ACT OF KINDNESS AT A

TARGET STORE GOES A LONG WAY.

AN ACT OF GENEROSITY QUICKLY

SPREAD FROM PERSON TO PERSON AT

AN OREGON TARGET STORE.

A CUSTOMER'S CREDIT CARD WAS

DENIED.

HIS BILL QUIETLY PAID BY A

STRANGER.

IT IS 16185 DOLLARS.

SHE SAID WHY WOULD ANYBODY DO

THAT FOR ME.

THE MAN WHOSE CARD WAS DECLINED.

HE HAD ENOUGH FOR THE PERSON

BEHIND HIM AND THE PERSON BEHIND

HIM OFFERED TO PAY FOR EACH.

EACH PAYING IT FORWARD UNTIL THE

LINE WAS GONE.

THE CASHIER SAYS WITNESSING THE

GOOD DEEDS WILL HAVE A LASTING

IMPACT ON HER

THAT GIVES YOU HOPE.

A LOT OF GOOD PEOPLE STILL OUT

THERE.

YOU KNOW WHAT, I DON'T HAVE A

CENT ON ME.

[LAUGHTER].

WE WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT LATER.

THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS.

[LAUGHTER].

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
