TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

TRAGEDY IN TEXAS.

WE'LL LOOK AT THE DAMAGE FROM

THE DEADLY EXPLOSION THAT

DESTROYED PARTS OF ONE SMALL

TOWN.

PLUS GUN CONTROL SUPPORTERS VOW

NOT TO GIVE UP.

WHAT COMES NEXT IN THE FIREARMS

FIGHT?

AND NFL LEGEND KURT WARNER TALKS

ABOUT THE MOTIVATION BEHIND HIS

NEW REALITY SERIES "THE MOMENT."

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM MARK MARTIN.

A MONSTROUS EXPLOSION AT A

FERTILIZER PLANT KILLS AS MANY

AS 15 PEOPLE AND INJURIES MORE

THAN 160.

IT HAPPENED IN A SMALL TOWN YEAR

WACO, TEXAS.

BUREAU OF ALCOHOL, TOBACCO,

FIREARMS AND EXPLOSIVES IS

TAKING THE LEAD ON THE

INVESTIGATION AS TO WHAT CAUSED

THE DEADLY BLAST.

ARE YOU OKAY?

I CAN'T HEAR.

GET OUT OF HEAR.

PLEASE GET OUT OF HERE.

IT WAS SO STRONG IT

REGISTERED AS 2.1 MAGNITUDE

EARTHQUAKE.

THE PLANT BLEW UP WITH A

MUSHROOM CLOUD OVERHEAD.

WHILE FIGHTING THE FIRE, THE

BUILDING EXPLODED.

SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAMS ARE

GOING HOUSE TO HOUSE TO FIND

SURVIVORS.

MOST OF THE VOLUNTEER

FIREFIGHTERS ARE MISSING.

PORTIONS OF THE TOWN COMPLETELY

WIPED OUT AND EXPLOSION DAMAGED

NEARLY 100 HOMES AND BUSINESSES

IN A FIVE BLOCK RADIUS.

SHARON'S MOM WAS IN A NURSING

HOME.

SHE SAID THE CEILING FELL ON

HER.

SHE WAS COVERED IN BROKEN GLASS.

INVESTIGATORS SAY THEY ARE

TREATING THE FERTILIZER PLANT AS

A CRIME SCENE.

WE ARE NOT INDICATING IT IS A

CRIME, WE DON'T KNOW.

WHAT THAT MEANS UNTIL WE KNOW IT

WAS AN INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT, WE

WILL WORK IT AS A CRIME SCENE.

ATF IS CONDUCTING THE MAIN

INVESTIGATION AT THE CRIME SCENE

WHICH IS THE FERTILIZER PLANT.

TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY IS

CALLING THE DEADLY FERTILIZER

PLANT EXPLOSION A TRULY

NIGHTMARE SCENARIO.

PERRY EMPHASIZED MUCH OF THE

INFORMATION ABOUT VICTIMS

REMAINS PRELIMINARY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS DECLARED

MCLENNAN COUNTY AN EMERGENCY

DISASTER AREA MAKING THEM

ELIGIBLE FOR AID.

PRESIDENT OBAMA VISITED THE

INTERFAITH SERVICE IN BOSTON.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: AS YOU BEGIN

THIS LONG RECOVERY, YOUR CITY IS

WITH YOU, COMMONWEALTH IS WITH

YOU, WE WILL ALL BE WITH YOU AS

YOU LEARN TO STAND, WALK, AND

YES, RUN AGAIN, THAT I HAVE NO

DOUBT YOU WILL RUN AGAIN.

[APPLAUSE].

DURING HIS SPEECH, MR. OBAMA

PROMISED JUSTICE TO THOSE

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ATTACK.

AUTHORITIES SAY THERE IS A

POSSIBLE BREAK.

INVESTIGATORS HAVE SPOTTED A

SUSPECT IN AN IMAGE,

SURVEILLANCE VIDEO OUTSIDE A

LORD & TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE

NEAR THE FINISH LINE.

IT SHOWS A MAN TALKING ON A CELL

PHONE AND CARRYING A BLACK BAG

STRAPPED ACROSS HIS CHEST.

THE SUSPECT HAS NOT BEEN

IDENTIFIED.

BEFORE THEY MAKE AN ARREST,

THE EVIDENCE WILL BE THERE.

THEY ARE GOING TO PUT IT ON

SOMEBODY, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO

RUSH TO JUDGMENT.

NO ONE HAS CLAIM

RESPONSIBILITY.

THE BOMB HAS BEEN USED WITH

PRESSURE COOKER BOMBS.

SIMILAR BOMBS ARE USED IN

AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ.

THESE ARE USED AS TRAINING

DEVICES ONCE THEY ARE OFF THE

STREET.

YOU CAN SEE IN THE PHOTO, THE

PRESSURE COOKERS LOOK DIFFERENT

THAN THE ONES YOU HAVE SEEN IN

YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S KITCHEN, THE

AFFECT IS THE SAME.

ONCE IT IS SEALED, START THE

BLACK POWDER ON FIRE AND START

IT BURNING.

IT EXPANDS AND THE GAS HAS

NOWHERE TO GO, PRESSURE

INCREASES UNTIL IT EXPLODES.

THE FACT THAT ONE IS USED COULD

LEAD SOMEONE TO BELIEVE THE

BOMBER COULD BE AFFILIATED WITH

TALIBAN OR AL-QAEDA OR ONE OF

THOSE GROUPS.

THEN AGAIN THOSE THINGS ARE

FREELY AVAILABLE, PLANS FOR

MAKING THE BOMBS ARE FREELY

AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET.

SO REALLY ANYBODY WITH THE

INCLINATION TO DO SO COULD GET A

HOLD OF THAT AND MAKE ONE

SIMPLY.

FOR ALL THE LATEST ON THE

BOSTON BOMBING INVESTIGATION,

VISIT CBNNEWS.COM.

SUPPORTERS OF GUN CONTROL

MEASURES SAY THEY WON'T LET

WEDNESDAY'S DEFEAT STOP THEM.

SENATE REJECTED KEY ELEMENTS OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S GUN CONTROL

PROGRAM.

THEY WERE TRYING TO BAN ASSAULT

WEAPONS AND LARGE CAPACITY

AMMUNITION.

THE PRESIDENT TRIED TO BLAME

REPUBLICANS AS HE SURROUNDED

HIMSELF WITH SANDY HOOK

FAMILIES.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: A FEW

MINUTES AGO A MINORITY IN THE

UNITED STATES SENATE DECIDED IT

WASN'T WORTH IT.

THEY BLOCKED COMMON SENSE GUN

REFORMS EVEN WHILE THESE

FAMILIES LOOKED ON FROM THE

SENATE FAMILY.

EXPANDING BACKGROUND CHECKS

WOULDN'T HAVE SUPPORTED OUR

LOVED ONES.

THIS IS A SLIPPERY SLOPE OF

COMPROMISING THE SECOND

AMENDMENT AND YOU GO DOWN THAT

ROAD, YOU ARE GOING TO FIND IT

EASIER TO COMPROMISE OTHER

THINGS IN THE BILL OF RIGHTS.

PRESIDENT SAYS HIS

ADMINISTRATION WILL TAKE STEPS

ON ITS OWN WITHOUT CONGRESS.

WE HAVE HEARD THAT BEFORE.

TODAY IS TAX FREEDOM DAY.

IT TAKES TODAY TO EARN ENOUGH

MONEY TO PAY TAXES THAN LAST

YEAR.

THE REASON IS CLEAR.

AMERICANS WILL PAY MORE IN

TAXES THIS YEAR THAN THEY WILL

ON FOOD, HOUSING AND CLOTHING.

ACCORDING TO THE TAX FOUNDATION,

AMERICANS WILL SPEND MORE THAN

29% OF THEIR INCOMES IN THEIR

THEIR TAXES IN 2013.

WE ARE SPENDING MORE.

WE ARE NOT GETTING OUR MONEY'S

WORTH.

THIS YEAR AMERICANS WILL PAY

TWO AND THREE QUARTER TRILLION

DOLLARS IN FEDERAL TAXES.

THAT IS NOT ENOUGH TO PAY FOR

ALL OF WASHINGTON'S SPENDING.

IT WOULD COST ADDITIONAL 833

BILLION IN TAXES TO COVER THE

FEDERAL DEFICIT.

AMERICANS WILL PAY A TRILLION

AND A HALF DOLLARS IN STATE

TAXES.

IT ALL ADDS UP TO TOTAL 4.2

TRILLION DOLLARS.

SOME POLITICAL LEADERS SAY THAT

IS NOT ENOUGH.

THE WASHINGTON MYTH IS LET'S

FIND ANOTHER REVENUE STREAM, NO.

STOP SPENDING.

WE CAN ROLL BACK A WHOLE LOT IN

WASHINGTON.

IT IS BACK TO PRE-OBAMA LEVELS,

2.7 TRILLION DOLLARS.

THAT IS AN AWFUL LOT OF MONEY.

BY THE WAY, THAT IS WHAT WE ARE

COLLECTING IN TAXES THIS YEAR.

THE ENTIRE FEDERAL DEBT WOULD GO

AWAY AND THAT WOULD SQUARE

EVERYBODY.

MORE THAN THREE AND A HALF

MONTHS INTO THE YEAR, AMERICANS

CAN FINALLY START KEEPING THE

MONEY THEY EARN.

TAX FREEDOM DAY COMES FIVE DAYS

LATER THAN LAST YEAR.

WASHINGTON HAS ADDED MORE TAXES

THEY INCLUDE.

THE FISCAL CLIFF DEAL RAIDING

INCOME AND PAYROLL TAXES.

'OBAMACARE' RAISED MEDICAL AND

EXCISE TAX.

MANY ANALYST BELIEVE STILL

HIGHER TAXES ARE IN YOUR FUTURE

EVEN THOUGH MOST AMERICANS DON'T

THINK WASHINGTON NEEDS ANYMORE

TAX MONEY.

EXPECT TAX FREEDOM DAY TO COME

LATER AND LATER IN THE YEARS

AHEAD.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

TURNING OVERSEAS ISRAELI

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU IS WARNING ISRAEL WILL

DO WHAT IS NECESSARY TO PREVENT

WEAPONS FROM FALLING INTO THE

HANDS OF ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS IN

SYRIA.

REBEL FIGHTERS ARE SEEKING --

NETANYAHU TOLD THE BBC THE

JEWISH STATE FEARS THE WEAPONS

WILL FALL INTO AL-QAEDA AND

HEZBOLLAH MILITANTS.

IF THAT HAPPENS, IT WILL CHANGE

THE BALANCE OF POWER AND MIDDLE

EAST WOULD FALL INTO THE HANDS

OF TERRORISTS.

NETANYAHU SAID ISRAEL HAD QUOTE,

THE RIGHT TO ACT TO PREP VENT

THAT FROM HAPPENING.

WE TURN TO BUREAU CHIEF CHRIS

MITCHELL.

CHRIS, WHAT DOES THIS WARNING

MEAN.

WHAT ACTION IS ISRAEL PREPARED

TO MAKE?

SEVERAL WEEKS AGO THEY HAD AN

ATTACK IN SYRIA THAT PRESUMABLY

DESTROYED ANTIAIRCRAFT MISSILES

ON THEIR WAY TO LEBANON.

THE REBELS OR ASSAD, IF THEY

TRANSFER WEAPONS OF MASS

DESTRUCTION, ISRAEL IS GOING TO

TAKE ACTION.

THEY SEE THAT AS AN THREAT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE FELT LIKE

ASSAD WOULD YOU SAY GOING TO

FALL.

IRAN HAS A VESTED INTEREST IN

KEEPING ASSAD ALIVE.

A IT IS A REAL BAD L AND

ATTRITION BETWEEN REBEL FORCES.

WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT IS

GOING TO LAST.

WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR THE

PEOPLE LIVE INNING LIVING IN

SYRIA?

IT IS A HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE,

HORRIFIC SCENES OF MAYBE,

SETTING UP A TENT WITHIN THE

COURTYARD OF THE VILLAGE, TAKING

THE MEN AND TORTURING THEM.

YOU CAN HEAR THE SCREAMS

THROUGHOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND

DISAPPEARING.

HORRIFIC THINGS GOING ON IN

SYRIA.

REFUGEE PROBLEM IS MASSIVE.

JORDAN, LEBANON, TURKEY, A

MILLION REFUGEES.

THE IMPACT ON THE REST OF THE

MIDDLE EAST?

IT IS DESTABILIZING JORDAN,

HAVING AFFECT ON LEBANON,

THOUSANDS OF REFUGEES IN TURKEY.

FOR ISRAEL, THEY WANT TO MAKE

SURE THIS WAR DOESN'T SPILL

OVER.

MAIN CONCERN IS THAT IF THE

ASSAD REGIME FALLS, ISLAMIST,

THOSE DEDICATED TO DESTRUCTION

OF ISRAEL ARE GOING TO TAKE OVER

SYRIA.

IF THEY GET WEAPONS OF MAS

DESTRUCTION, THAT IS A HUGE

PROBLEM FOR ISRAEL.

ALL RIGHT.

CHRIS MITCHELL THANKS,

APPRECIATE IT.

COMING UP, MULTIMILLION DOLLAR

MOSQUES AND THE MAN THAT IS

TRYING TO STOP THEM FROM BEING

BUILT.

IN GREAT BRITAIN, SPREAD OF

MEGAMOSQUES HAS BEEN CON

CONTINUAL.

ERICK STAKELBECK SAT DOWN WITH

THE THE MOSQUE BUSTER

REPORTER: ACROSS THE UNITED

STATES, MULTIMILLION DOLLAR

MOSQUE PROJECTS HAVE LOCAL

RESIDENTS UP IN ARMS.

THESE PROJECTS CONTINUE FULL

SPEED AHEAD.

IN 2011, THERE WERE 1200 MOSQUES

IN AMERICA.

TODAY THAT NUMBER HAS DOUBLED TO

OVER 2000.

THAT IS AN INCREASE OF 74% IN

THE LAST 11 YEARS.

IN GREAT BRITAIN, THINGS MAYBE

TAKING A DIFFERENT TERM.

A PLANNING APPLICATION GETS

SUBMITTED IN A MOSQUE AND NEVER

CALLED A MOSQUE.

A NEIGHBOR WOULD CONTACT US.

LAWYER GAVIN FOEBE SPRINGS

INTO ACTION.

HE RUNS A GROUP DEDICATED TO

PROMOTING FREEDOM UNDER LAW.

IT MEANS WORKING WITH BRITISH

CITIZENS WHO OPPOSE BUILDING

MOSQUES IN THEIR CITIES AND

TOWNS.

SIMPLY TO USE ESTABLISHED

METHODS OF CONSULTATION.

TELL THE LOCAL AUTHORITY WE

OBJECT.

IT WORKS SO WELL, BOBE HAS

EARNED THE NAME MOSQUE BUSTER.

IN 15 OF THE 16 CASES THERE ARE

1500 MOSQUES OVERALL IN THE UK.

IS THIS PART OF A LARGER

STRATEGY IN UK?

IT IS PART OF ISLAMIC

DOCTRINE, MOSQUE IS FAR MORE

THAN HOUSE OF WORSHIP.

EVERY MOSQUE IS BASED ON

ORIGINAL MOSQUE IN MADINA SET UP

HIS POLITICAL

RELIGIOUS-POLITICAL DOCTRINE OF

SOCIAL CONTROL.

CRITICS OF BOBE HIM A RACIST, A

HOME FOEB.

I HAVE NO HATRED FOR MUSLIMS.

I FEEL SORRY FOR THEM BEING

BEHIND THIS BARBARIC SYSTEM.

HE ONCE GOT RESISTANCE TO

EXPAND FURTHER INTO EUROPE.

ORGANIZATIONS IN FIVE DIFFERENT

COUNTRIES EXPRESSED AN INTEREST

TO WORK WITH HIM.

OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE OUT YOUR

DREAMS

REPORTER: KURT WARRENER IS

ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME, GIVING

EACH CONTENDER A SECOND CHANCE

DREAMS ARE AS DIVERSE AS THE

PEOPLE FROM PROFESSIONAL SPORTS

PHOTOGRAPHER TO SYMPHONY

CONDUCTOR TO RACE CAR DRIVER,

NINE PEOPLE PUT TO THE TEST TO

SEE IF THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES

AND WON'T BE EASY.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN

TRYING FOR FOR SO MANY YEARS.

KURT WARNER KNOWS ALL ABOUT

SECOND CHANCES, WE WENT FROM

STOCKING GROCERY STORES IN IOWA

TO LEADING ST. LOUIS RAMS TO A

SUPER BOWL VICTORY A FEW SHORT

YEARS LATER.

CONFIDENT HIS NFL CAREER WAS

ABOUT TO TAKE OFF.

FIVE WEEKS LATER HE WAS CUT.

TRIED OTHER TEAMS, EVEN OTHER

LEAGUES.

N

EVERYBODY SAID WE ARE NOT

INTERESTED.

I HAD TO TAKE A JOB, PAY BILLS.

I TOOK A JOB STOCKING SHELVES AT

A GROCERY STORE, WORKING ALL

NIGHT LONG, I MAY GET A COUPLE

OF HOURS OF SLEEP, GO WORKOUT.

MAKE SURE I WAS STILL CHASING MY

DREAM.

MY FUTURE WIFE, BRENDA, I WOULD

HELP TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS WHILE

SHE WENT TO NURSING SCHOOL.

WHILE MAKING $5.50 AN HOUR,

WARNER WENT TO PLAY ARENA

FOOTBALL.

AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO

REALIZE THIS ISN'T GOING TO

HAPPEN.

THEY DON'T GIVE 27 YEAR OLD

INDIVIDUALS A CHANCE TO PLAY IN

THE NFL.

JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN AT THE

QUARTERBACK POSITION.

BUT APPARENTLY DICK FERMEAL

OF THE ST. LOUIS RAMS DIDN'T

AGREE AND GAVE HIM A CHANCE TO

PLAY IN THE NFL.

HE SAID THERE WAS SOMETHING

DIFFERENT HE NOTICED HE WANTED

TO GIVE ME A CHANCE.

HERE I AM 27 YEARS OLD, ROOKIE

IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

THE REST IS HISTORY.

WARNER WOULD GO ON TO A

12-YEAR-OLD CAREER REGARDED AS

ONE OF THE GREATEST CAREERS.

WHEN YOU ARE GOING THROUGH

IT, WHY CAN'T EVERYTHING PLAY

OUT LIKE I HAD HOPE, IT WOULD.

AFTER THINGS PLAYED OUT.

I SEE HOW GOD USED THIS STORY.

I WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING.

WARNER SAYS HE WAS BLESSED AT

A SECOND CHANCE MAKES HIM A

PERFECT HOST FOR THE MOMENT.

EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEBODY TO

STEP IN AND GIVE THEM A CHANCE

TO CHASE THEIR DREAM LIFE HAS

TAKEN THEM IN A DIFFERENT

DIRECTION.

LETTING PEOPLE KNOW YOU DON'T

HAVE TO GIVE UP.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO BE

EVERYTHING YOU WANT IT TO BE.

HE SAYS THE WHOLE THEME OF

SECOND CHANCES HE SAYS THOSE OF

US THAT SERVE A GOD OF SECOND

CHANCES CAN IDENTIFY WITH.

WHEN I PICK UP THE BIBLE, GOD

TAKING PEOPLE EVERYBODY SAYS NO

WAY, CAN'T HAPPEN, NO CHANCE AND

DOING AMAZING THINGS WITH THEM.

I GOT YOUR BACK.

THANK YOU.

THAT IS THE HOPE OF EACH

PERSON FEATURED "IN THE MOMENT."

THEY'LL TRAIN WITH AN EXPERT

MENTOR, PREPARE FOR AN INTERVIEW

AND HOPEFULLY LAND A JOB OF A

LIFETIME.

KURT, WHAT DO YOU THINK

PEOPLE WILL TAKE AWAY FROM "IN

THE MOMENT."

I PRAY AS THEY WATCH THAT SHOW,

THEIR EYES ARE OPEN TO WHAT LIFE

COULD BE AND NO LONGER ARE THEY

GOING TO ALLOW THINGS TO HOLD

THEM BACK AND CHASE AFTER

WHATEVER THERE IS IN LIFE.
