TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" AN

OUTBREAK OF EPIC PROPORTION.

LATEST ON THE FLU AND WHAT YOU

CAN DO TO AVOID IT.

PLUS THE WHITE HOUSE MEETING

BETWEEN PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

AFGHAN PRESIDENT HAMID KARZAI.

WHAT IT MEANS FOR OUR TROOPS

OVERSEAS. WHY SO MANY

DEFENDERS OF OUR HOMELAND DON'T

HAVE HOMES OF THEIR OWN.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

THE DEADLY FLU SEASON SWEEPING

ACROSS THE UNITED STATES COULD

BE WANING IN SOME AREAS

ACCORDING TO THE CENTERS FOR

DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION.

24 STATES REPORTED LAST WEEK

AND DOWN FROM 29.

THE VACCINE IN SHORT SUPPLY.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

GOING TO TAKE YOU TWO OR

THREE WEEKS TO FEEL REALLY GOOD

AGAIN.

REPORTER: MANY AMERICANS ARE

FIGHTING A LOSING BATTLE AGAINST

THIS YEAR'S FLU VIRUS.

WE ARE ALL A LITTLE

OVERWHELMED, NOT ONLY THE

PRACTITIONERS BUT THE CARE

GIVE

GIVERS.

THIS BOSTON HOSPITAL FORCED

TO TURN OFFICE SPACE INTO BED

SPACE TO MAKE ROOM FOR PATIENTS.

IT FEELS LIKE IT HASN'T YET

PEAKED.

MEDICAL OFFICES RUNNING OUT

OF THE FLU VACCINE.

CLINICS CAN'T KEEP UP WITH THE

COMMAND.

SUMMERVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS.

WE EXHAUSTED OUR SUPPLY ON

TUESDAY OF THIS WEEK.

IN DALLAS, TEXAS.

WE WERE RUNNING LOW AND ABLE

TO GET A THOUSAND DOSES.

WE'LL EVALUATE HOW MANY WE NEED

TO ORDER.

RIGHT NOW FILLING THE GAP.

THERE ARE A HUGE NUMBER OF

CASES.

PHARMACISTS ARE STRUGGLING.

WE WERE GOING TO GO ON A

CRUISE.

DIDN'T GET TO GO.

PROBABLY THE SICKEST I HAVE BEEN

IN 20 YEARS.

THIS TEXAS FAPHARMACY TRYING TO

GET THE DRUG, TAMIFLU.

RIGHT NOW TRYING TO GET 24

BOXES.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH.

WE ARE GETTING 40-50

PRESCRIPTIONS EVERYDAY.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

FOR THOSE THAT DON'T WANT A

FLU SHOT.

SOME DOCTORS ARE PROMOTING

NATUROPAT

NATUROPATHY.

IT HAS BEEN OVER 25 YEARS.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CATCH THESE

THINGS.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE WHATEVER

HAPPENS WE CAN COMBAT WITH

NATURAL LIFE STYLE.

HEALTHY LIFE STYLE INCLUDES

PROPER DIET, PLENTY SLEEP,

LIMITING SUGAR AND EXERCISE.

DOCTORS RECOMMEND THAT THEIR

PATIENTS TAKE VITAMIN C AND D.

IN OTHER NEWS, PRESIDENT

OBAMA MET WITH AFGHAN PRESIDENT

HAMID KARZAI.

THE TWO LEADERS DISCUSSED THE

MILITARY ROLE IN AFGHANISTAN AND

HELD A JOINT PRESS CONFERENCE.

JENNIFER WISHON WITH THERE.

JENNIFER, DO WE HAVE A CLEAR

PICTURE OF EXACTLY WHEN U.S.

TROOPS WILL PULL OUT OF THAT

COUNTRY?

YES AND NO, WENDY.

THERE ARE 66,000 U.S. TROOPS IN

AFGHANISTAN RIGHT NOW.

THEIR MISSION WILL CHANGE TO ONE

OF SUPPORT.

THAT IS TRAINING AND ADVISING

AFGHAN FORCES WHO WILL TAKE FULL

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SECURITY

IN THEIR COUNTRY.

U.S. MILITARY WILL RESERVE THE

RIGHT TO COMBAT TERRORISM.

KARZAI HAS BEEN IN WASHINGTON

MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT AND

KEY MEMBERS OF HIS TEAM.

ONE OF THE OUTSTANDING ISSUES

THAT REMAINS IS IMMUNITY FOR

AMERICAN TROOPS WHO REMAIN IN

AFGHANISTAN AFTER 2014.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS ALL OF

AMERICA'S SECURITY AGREEMENTS

INCLUDE IMMUNITY AGREEMENTS FOR

U.S. TROOPS PRESIDENT OBAMA:

FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, IT WILL NOT

BE POSSIBLE FOR US TO HAVE ANY

KIND OF U.S. TROOP PRESENCE POST

2014 WITHOUT ASSURANCES THAT OUR

MEN AND WOMEN OPERATING THERE

ARE IN SOME WAY SUBJECT TO THE

JURISDICTION OF ANOTHER COUNTRY.

PRESIDENT KARZAI SAYS OF

EQUAL IMPORTANCE TO HIS PEOPLE

IS ENDING THE WAR, SOVEREIGNTY

OF THEIR COUNTRY AND RETURN OF

DETENTION FACILITIES TO AFGHAN

CONTROL WHICH IS NOW BEING TAKEN

CARE OF.

KARZAI INDICATED HE CAN ARGUE

FOR IMMUNITY.

I CAN GO TO THE AFGHAN PEOPLE

AND ARGUE FOR IMMUNITY FOR U.S.

TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN.

IN A WAY THAT AFGHAN SOVEREIGNTY

WOULD NOT BE COMPROMISED.

IN A WAY AFGHAN LAW WOULD NOT BE

COMPROMISED.

IN A WAY THAT THE PROVISIONS

THAT WE ARRIVE AT THROUGHOUT

TALKS WILL GIVE THE UNITED

STATES THE SATISFACTION AND ALSO

PROVIDE AFGHAN PEOPLE THE

BENEFITS THAT THEY ARE SEEKING

THROUGH THIS PARTNERSHIP.

NOW EXACTLY HOW MANY AMERICAN

TROOPS WILL REMAIN IN

AFGHANISTAN AFTER 2014, WENDY

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS WORKING OUT

THE DETAILS WITH THE PENT GOOD

AFTERNOON AND PENTAGON AND

COMMANDERS ON THE GROUND.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN A POST

WAR AFGHANISTAN DIDN'T COME UP.

MEMBER OF THE AFGHAN PRESS CORP

ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT FULL

RIGHTS FOR WOMEN.

PRESIDENT OBAMA TOLD THAT

REPORTER AFGHANISTAN CANNOT

UNLESS THEY GIVE FULL RIGHTS TO

ITS WOMEN.

PRESIDENT KARZAI DECLINED TO

COMMENT.

THAT MIGHT BE TELLING.

JENNIFER, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

REPORT.

VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN MET

TO CURB FURTHER GUN VIOLENCE.

HE SAT DOWN WITH ENTERTAINMENT

OFFICIALS WITH THE MOTION

PICTURE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN

A DAY AFTER THE NATIONAL RIFLE

ASSOCIATION AND OTHER PRO-GUN

GROUPS.

THEY HAVE REJECTED BANNING

ASSAULT WEAPONS.

EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN

PROPOSED IMPINGES ON PEOPLE WHO

HAVE EVER RIGHT TO OWN FIREMANS.

BIDEN WILL PRESENT FINDINGS

FROM THIS WEEK'S MEETINGS TO THE

PRESIDENT ON TUESDAY.

IN ADDITION TO FURTHERING GUN

CONTROL IT WILL COVER MENTAL

HEALTH CARE AND VIOLENCE ON

MOVIES AND VIDEO GAMES.

JOINING US IS CO-AUTHOR OF THE

BOOK "LESSONS LEARNED FROM ARMED

AMERICA."

WE ARE LOOKING AT A NUMBER OF

DIFFERENT AVENUES THIS

ADMINISTRATION WILL TAKE.

EXECUTIVE PEN IS ONE WE FEAR THE

MOST.

PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT, I

THINK, THE FACT THAT BARACK

OBAMA MIGHT ATTEMPT TO

CRIMINALALIZE AND TURN MILLIONS

OF LAW ABIDING CITIZENS INTO

FELONS OVERNIGHT BY FORCING

REQUIRED REGISTRATION MUCH LIKE

THE NATIONAL FIREMANS ACT FOR

ANYBODY THAT OWNS ANY TYPE OF

SEMIAUTOMATIC WEAPON.

THAT IS OUR GREATEST FEAR.

HOW WOULD THE NEW PROPOSALS

HURT THE PUBLIC?

I HOPE I AM WRONG MILLIONS OF

GOOD LAW ABIDING CITIZENS WON'T

BE FORCED TO MAKE A TERRIBLE

DECISION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT TO

COMPLY WITH A MANDATE IN FORMS

OF REGISTRATION, IN FORMS OF

WHAT THEY REFER TO THE GUN SHOW

LOOPHOLE ELIMINATING SALE OF

FIREMANS BETWEEN FAMILY MEMBERS.

CAN WE LEARN ANYTHING FROM

PAST ATTEMPTS AT GUN CONTROL

LIKE THE --

ASSAULT WEAPON WOULD BE

CONSIDERED FULLY AUTOMATIC M-16

OR SAW.

IT IS AMERICA'S NO. 1 SPORT

UTILITY RIFLE USED BY MILLIONS

OF AMERICANS EVERY SINGLE DAY.

THE PREVIOUS BAN WAS AN UTTER

FAILURE.

MORE DEATHS BY HAMMERS THAN ALL

RIFLES OF ANY TYPE COMMITTED BY

AMERICA.

ABSOLUTE INSANITY.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STOP

CRIMINALS AND PEOPLE WITH MENTAL

ILLNESS?

NRA CAUGHT FLAK FOR

CONTROVERSIAL PRESS CONFERENCE

IN THE DAYS FOLLOWING THE

SLAUGHTER IN NEWTOWN.

CONTROVERSY TO WHO?

THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA.

CONGRESS BENEFITS FROM ARMED

SECURITY.

OUR PILOTS AND AIRLINE TRAVELERS

BENEFIT FROM ARMED SECURITY.

OUR BANKS, ARMED SECURITY.

SECURITY GUARDS ARE ARMED.

CLEARLY WE HAVE AN ISSUE WHEN

OUR CHILDREN, OUR NATION'S MOST

PRECIOUS RESOURCE, WE CAN'T FIND

THE MEANS TO PROTECT OUR

CHILDREN.

WAYNE LAPARIRE WAS RIGHT.

WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT

EVIL EXISTS.

MARK WALTERS OF ARMED

AMERICAN RADIO, THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US, SIR.

THANKS, MARK.

I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY.

COMING UP, WHY IS THE UNITED

STATES LOOKING TO YOUR EUROPE

FOR ECONOMIC ADVICE.

?

MANY ECONOMIST WARN THAT

AMERICA IS ON THE SAME ROAD THAT

LED MANY EUROPEAN NATIONS TO

RUIN.

SOME BLAME PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

POLICIES OF HIGH TAXES AND HIGH

SPENDING.

AS DALE HURD REPORTS, AMERICA

COULD BE TURNING INTO FRANCE

REPORTER: IF AMERICANS WANT

A GLIMPSE INTO THEIR ECONOMIC

FUTURE THEY SHOULD LOOK TO

FRANCE.

HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT, MORE TAXES,

MORE PEOPLE ON WELFARE.

SOME ARE CALLING IT THE NEW

NORMAL AND AMERICA LOOKS MORE

AND MORE LIKE EUROPE.

FRANCE SHOULD BE A WARNING

FOR THOSE THAT VOTED FOR FOUR

MORE YEARS OF BIG GOVERNMENT

SPENDING.

FRENCH HAVE BEEN DEFICIT

SPENDISPEND

ING FOR DECADES.

IT IS STARTING TO LOOK SO

EUROPEAN THAT THEY DRESSED UP

PRESIDENT OBAMA IN A FRENCH

SHIRT AND SPEAKER BOEHNER.

FRANCE DOES SOME THINGS WELL

ECONOMICS MIGHT NOT BE ON THE

LIST.

FRANCE'S BLOATED WELFARE STATE

DUBBED A TICKING TIME BOMB.

IT HAS CRIPPLED THE

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT.

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL YOUNG

PEOPLE OF FRANCE ARE HEADING

ELSEWHERE.

THEY ARE GOING TO LONDON, TO

ASIA.

THEY ARE GOING TO THE UNITED

STATES.

THEY WANT TO ACTUALLY ACHIEVE

SOMETHING WHICH IS NOT

IMMEDIATELY TAKEN AWAY BY A

STATE THAT SAYS YOU HAVE

THEREFORE I TAKE IT.

THE WEALTHY ARE FLEEING OVER

HIGH TAXES.

FRANCE HAS ONE OF THE LOWEST

NUMBER OF MILLIONAIRES PER

CAPITA IN WESTERN EUROPE.

A CLUE CAN BE FIND IN THIS

NEWSPAPER AD.

FRANCE IS THE ONE COUNTRY WHERE

COMMUNIST SUCCEEDED.

MOST FRENCH ARE DEPENDENT ON THE

STATE FOR BENEFITS AND JOBS.

THREE OUT OF FOUR FRENCH YOUNG

PEOPLE SAY THEIR DREAM IS TO GET

A GOVERNMENT JOB SOME DAY.

THIS PERSON SAYS FRANCE IS

ADDICTED TO PUBLIC SPENDING LIKE

A DRUG.

WE TURN TO GOVERNMENT SPENDING

AS THE SOLUTION TO OUR PROBLEMS.

BUSINESSMAN CAN'T TAKE IT

ANYMORE.

THE SYSTEM IS VERY GENEROUS

AND VERY EXPENSIVE.

WE SIMPLY CANNOT PAY FOR IT.

FRENCH ECONOMIST EMMANUEL

MARTIN SAYS THEY STOP TAKING

CARE OF EACH OTHER.

LEVELS OF CHARITABLE GIVING IN

FRANCE ARE MUCH LOWER THAN THE

UNITED STATES.

SO IT KILLS THE NATURAL MOVE

FOR SOLIDARITY OF INDIVIDUALS.

NO WONDER WE ARE NOT A VERY FILL

ENTLOPIC COUNTRY. DO YOU

THINK IT MAKES PEOPLE MEAN?

YES.

THEY WON'T BE AROUND WHEN THE

STATE FINALLY GOES BROKE.

FRANCE HAS ALL BUT GUARANTEED

ITS FUTURE WILL BE POOR.

THAT DAY IS COMING VERY SOON.

VERY FOON SOON.

NEW MORE AN MORE COMPANIES

DYING.

MORE AND MORE DESTRUCTION OF

JOBS.

GROWING AWARENESS WE ARE

HEADING INTO THE WALL WHICH IS

REALITY.

MOST DEMOCRATS HAVE A FAVORABLE

VIEW OF SOCIALISM AND VERY

POPULAR AMONG THE COLLEGE AGE

YOUNG PEOPLE.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

PARIS.

UP NEXT, WHY SO MANY FEMALE

VETERANS ARE FACING

HOMELESSNESS.

A GROWING NUMBER OF ACTIVE

DUTY TROOPS COMMITTED SUICIDE

LAST YEAR.

THAT DESPITE SPECIFIC GOVERNMENT

PROGRAMS AIMED AT PREVENTING

SUCH TRAGEDIES.

MORE SOLDIERS TOOK THEIR OWN

LIVES THAN KILLED IN ACTION IN

2012.

176 TROOPS DIED IN COMBAT.

177 COMMITTED SUICIDE.

DOD STILL LOOKING AT CASES FROM

DECEMBER.

THAT NUMBER COULD STILL RISE.

AMERICANS WHO SERVE IN THE

MILITARY MAKE GREAT SACRIFICES

FOR OUR COUNTRY.

THEIR LIVES CAN BECOME VERY

DIFFICULT AFTER THE SERVICE.

NUMBER OF HOMELESS FEMALE

VETERANS RISING.

CHARLENE ISRAEL SHOWS US WHAT

ONE VETERAN IS DOING TO HELP

REPORTER: JANICE RAMIREZ HAD

AN INJURED AND WAS FORCED TO

LEAVE THE SERVICE.

SHE COULDN'T GET A STEADY JOB.

STRUGGLED TO PAY THE RENT.

IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE SHE HAD NO

PLACE TO CALL HOME.

I SLEPT WHEREVER I COULD.

SLEPT IN SHELTERS, ON THE FLOOR,

IN THE CAR, AND ABANDONED HOUSE.

AFTER A STINT IN THE

MILITARY, SUREESE LIVE WERE

DRIVEN FROM THEIR OWN HOME.

YOU DON'T SLEEP WELL IN A CAR

NOT KNOWING WHO WAS GOING TO

COME UP TO THE CAR AND HURT YOU.

HOMELESSNESS WAS AN ISSUE

AMONG MALE VETERANS.

THE ISSUE HAS GROWN

SIGNIFICANTLY WITHIN THE LAST 10

YEARS WITHIN THE FEMALE VETERAN

COMMUNITY.

IT IS ON THE RISE, ABOUT 8%

OF VETERANS IDENTIFIED AS

HOMELESS ARE FEMALE.

PETE OVERSEAS HOMELESS

VETERANS.

HE SAYS FEMALE VETERANS FACE A

HOST OF PROBLEMS.

LACK OF PROBLEM, SUBSTANCE

USE OR MENTAL ILLNESS.

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT RETURNING

VETERANS, THEY SEEM TO HAVE A

MUCH HIGHER INCIDENCE OF POST

TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER.

THE BIGGEST ISSUE, NOT ENOUGH

TEMPORARY HOUSING.

WE HAVE 14,000 CURRENT

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING BEDS FOR

VETERANS, MALE AND FEMALE.

THE SITUATION FACING MANY OF

HER FELLOW VETS PUSHED NAVY

RESERVIST TO ACTION.

SHE OPENED LADY VETS HAVEN.

HERE THE WOMEN ENJOY A CLEAN,

SAFE ENVIRONMENT AND RECEIVE A

DISCOUNTED RENT RATE.

THERE IS NO REASON, A

VETERAN, SOMEBODY THAT GAVE

THEIR LIFE FOR OUR COUNTRY

SHOULD HAVE TO BE SLEEPING

OUTSIDE.

THIS DOCTOR SAYS FEMALE VETS

FACE THE SAME STRESSES AS MALES,

THEY HAVE GENDER SPECIFIC ISSUES

THAT MAKE THEM MORE SUSCEPTIBLE

TO HOMELESSNESS.

BEING SINGLE PARENTS WITH

SMALL CHILDREN.

AND THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ISSUE

IS A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR.

UNEMPLOYMENT ALL THESE COMING

TOGETHER.

MILITARY SEXUAL TRAUMA MAY

ALSO PLAY A PART.

VETERAN'S AFFAIRS FOUND

NEARLY A THIRD OF TEMPORARY

SHELTERS DIDN'T ADDRESS SECURITY

RISKS.

THEY INCLUDED MALE AND FEMALE

RESIDENTS ON THE SAME FLOOR AND

INSUFFICIENT LOCKS IN BEDROOMS

AND BATHROOMS.

ABOUT 90% OF OUR SEXUAL

TRAUMA VICTIMS ARE FEMALES.

AS YOU CAN SEE THAT WOULD

CERTAINLY CAUSE SOME CHALLENGES

FOR WOMEN COMING INTO A MALE

DOMINATED SETTING TO SEEK

TREATMENT WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN

TRAUMATIZED BY SEXUAL TRAUMA.

DAUGHTRY SAYS THE DEPARTMENT

OF FEDERAL AFFAIRS IS MAKING

PROGRESS.

THEY ARE TEAMING WITH DEPARTMENT

OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

TO PROVIDE HOUSING VOUCHERS FOR

VETERANS.

THIS IS PARTICULARLY POPULAR A

AMONG FEMALE VETERANS.

THEY GIVE YOU A LITTLE

INFORMATION UPON THE EXIT

PROCESS.

NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU TO BECOME A

CIVILIAN AGAIN AND RESTABILIZE.

WE HAVE TO DO A MUCH BETTER

JOB AS SERVICE MEMBERS ARE

COMING OUT.

MEANWHILE, PLACES LIKE LADIES

VETERAN ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

WOW, YOU REALLY MEAN THIS IS

ALL WOMEN?

IT IS LIKE A BLESSING.

LIKE WALKING INTO A TRUE

BLESSING.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, A POSTAL WORKER

BEING PRAISED AFTER RESCUING ONE

OF HIS FAVORITE CUSTOMERS.

FINALLY AN ELDERLY MAN IN

OHIO HAS HIS MAILMAN TO THANK

FOR MORE THAN JUST HIS MAIL.

YOU, YOU CAN THANK HIM FOR

HIS LIFE.

THEY CALLED THE POLICE, I

CAME BACK THE NEXT DAY IN THE

MORNING, I DIDN'T SEE

FOOTPRINTS, HIS CAR STILL HADN'T

MOVED.

I CALLED THE POLICE AGAIN.

JASON JONES HAS BEEN

DELIVERING MAIL TO ONE OF HIS

NO. 1 CUSTOMERS FOR FIVE YEARS.

LAST WEEK JONES NOTICED HIS

91-YEAR-OLD CUSTOMER HAD NOT

BEEN OUT TO GREET HIM AND THE

CAR HADN'T MOVED IN WEEKS.

POLICE SAY THE MAN WAS

UNCONSCIOUS AND MALNOURISHED

LYING ON THE FLOOR.

NEIGHBORS SAY HE IS ALIVE TODAY

THANKS TO THE MAILMAN.

HE CALLED THE POLICE TWICE.

THIS GUY STILL HASN'T COME OUT.

CAN YOU CHECK ON HIM.

BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT

WEEKEN
