INVESTIGATORS ARE TRYING TO

DETERMINE WEATHER IS OLDER

BROTHER HAD CONTACTS WITH

RADICAL ISLAMIC GROUPS WHEN HE

VISITED DAGESTAN IN 2012.

IN CAPITOL HILL LAWMAKERS WERE

BRIEFED ON PROVINCES LIKE

DAGESTAN AND NORTH CAUCUSES.

DAGESTAN, IT IS KNOWN AS A

HAVEN FOR JIHADIST PHILOSOPHY,

WHY WE WOULD NOT BE CONCERNED

ABOUT SOMEONE IN THE UNITED

STATES GOING TO THAT AREA FOR

SIX MONTHS, I MEAN WHAT WAS HE

DOING FOR SIX MONTHS?

FOR ANSWERS TO THIS CRITICAL

QUESTION, WE TURN TO GEORGE

THOMAS WHO WAS RECENTLY IN

DAGESTAN.

GEORGE, WHAT WAS TAMERLAN DOING

IN DAGESTAN FOR SIX MONTHS?

REPORTER: THAT IS THE BLACK

SPOT IN THIS ENTIRE

INVESTIGATION.

HE WENT TO DAGESTAN IN 2012 FOR

SIX MONTHS TO VISIT HIS FAMILY,

HIS RELATIVES, CLEARLY THIS IS A

MAN ON THE PATH TO RADICAL

RADICALIZATION AND LANDED.

SAW 262 TERRORIST CRIMES.

IT WAS UP FROM 220.

THIS IS THE EPICENTER OF RADICAL

ISLAM IN SOUTHERN RUSSIA.

FOR SIX MONTHS SURROUNDED BY

RUSSIANS BATTLING ISLAMISTS ON A

DAILY BASIS.

HE COMES TO THE REGION

RADICALIZED AND SEES FELLOW

MUSLIMS ENGAGED IN A WAR WITH

RUSSIANS.

ALL OF THIS HAS HAD TO HAVE SOME

IMPACT ON HIS LIFE.

GEORGE, ARE THE RUSSIANS

PROVIDING US WITH INTELLIGENCE

ON HIS ACTIVITIES

REPORTER: IT IS FASCINATING,

2012, RUSSIANS SENT A NOTE TO

FBI, THEY SEEM TO HAVE SOME

INFINITY FOR RADICAL GROUPS IN

CHECHNYA.

YOU NEED TO KEEP AN EYE ON THEM.

UNITED STATES SAID LISTEN, CAN

YOU GIVE US MORE DETAILS.

RUSSIANS WENT SILENT.

HERE THIS GUY GOES TO THIS

REGION AND RUSSIA DOESN'T SHARE

ANYMORE DETAILS.

I HAVE A FEELING RUSSIA HAS MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT THIS GUY IN

DAGESTAN FOR SIX MONTHS.

YOU ARE GOING TO SEE A

CONNECTION BETWEEN THE RADICAL

GROUPS IN CHECHNYA AND

SIGNIFICANT IMPLICATIONS.

GEORGE THOMAS THANKS FOR YOUR

INSIEPTH INSIGHTS.

MARK?

SENATE VOTED LAST NIGHT AND

HOUSE TODAY TO RAISE 200 MILLION

DOLLARS IN CUTS.

CUTS CAME AS PART OF A

SEQUESTER.

DEMOCRATS WENT ALONG WITH THE

BILL BUT SAID ALL THE CUTS

SHOULD BE LIFTED.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY HAS BEEN BUYING UP

MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF AMMUNITION.

AMERICANS WANT TO KNOW WHY, SO

DOES CONGRESS

REPORTER: FOR MONTH IT IS

INTERNET HAS BEEN ABLAZE ABOUT

THE GOVERNMENT BUYING UP

AMMUNITION.

FEDERAL OFFICIALS HAVE DENIED

STOCK PILING EVEN AS THEY

CONTINUE TO BUY UP MILLIONS OF

ROUNDS.

HOMELAND SECURITY HAS MORE

THAN 260 MILLION ROUNDS OF

AMMUNITION.

CONGRESSMAN JASON CHAFEF SAYS

THEY ARE LOOKING FOR ANSWERS,

THEY WANT TO PREVENT GOVERNMENT

WASTE.

IT IS INEXPOLICE IT WHY THEY

NEED SO MUCH.

THEIR OFFICERS WHAT SEEMS TO BE

AN EXOR BENT AMOUNT OF

AMMUNITION.

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY SAYS THERE IS NOTHING

UNUSUAL.

SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

DHS PURCHASES OF AMMUNITION WILL

NOT CREATE SHORTAGES.

IT IS SHOCKING DHS AGENTS

WOULD NEED THREE TIMES MORE AM

IN ADDITION THAN THE AVERAGE

U.S. SOLDIER.

HOMELAND SECURITY OFFICERS

USE ROUGHLY A THOUSAND ROUNDS

MORE PER OFFICER THAN THE

AVERAGE ARMY OFFICER.

CONGRESSMAN JIM JORDAN SAYS

IT HIGHLIGHTS ANOTHER PROBLEM,

DHS HASN'T BEEN CLEAR AND OPEN

WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

WHEN YOU DO THE NUMBERS, 1300

ROUNDS PER DHS PER EMPLOYEE PER

YEAR AND COMPARE TO SOLDIERS IN

UNITED STATES ARMY, 347 PER

SOLDIER PER YEAR, YOU HAVE

ACCOUNT PROBLEM.

MEANWHILE THE MAN IN CHARGE

OF BUYING ALL THE AMMUNITION FOR

DHS SAYS THEY MAY BUY ANOTHER

750 MILLION ROUNDS IN COMING

YEARS.

GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE

IS LAUNCHING A REVIEW.

NEWLY RELEASED VIDEO FROM THE

FAMILY RESEARCH CENTER FROM LAST

YEAR, LEO JOHNSON WRESTLES FLOYD

CORKINS EVEN AFTER SUSTAINING A

DIRECT HIT TO THE ARM AND 100

ARMS AFTER AMMUNITION.

HE ADMITTED HE PLANS TO KILL AS

MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AND WHY

HE CHOSE THE FAMILY RESEARCH

COUNCIL.

IT WAS A SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW

THAT ANTIGAY GROUPS.

STUFF LIKE THAT.

OKAY.

DESPITE BEING CONNECTED IN

FEDERAL COURT TO A DOMESTIC

TERRORISM CONVICTION, SOUTHERN

POVERTY LAW CERTAIN HAS REFUSED

TO REMOVE THEM FROM THE GROUP.

BAN ON GAY ADULT LEADERS

WOULD STAY IN PLACE.

CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER

DAY SAINTS, SINGLE STANDARD OF

MORAL PURITY OF YOUTH IN THE

PROGRAM AND RENEWED EMPHASIS FOR

SCOUTS TO HONOR THEIR DUTY TO

GOD.

MORMON CHURCH HAS MORE SCOUTING

TROOPS THAN ANY OTHER RELIGIOUS

NOMINATION IN THE COUNTRY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA BECAME THE

FIRST SITTING PRESIDENT TO

ADDRESS PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN

PERSON.

PRESIDENT SPOKE AT THE GROUPS

GALA, A FUNDRAISER FOR THE

NATION'S NO. 1 ABORTION

PROVIDER.

HE SAID STATES WANT TO TURN BACK

THE CLOCK TO ABORTION TO 1950S.

PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES SAYS THE

PRESIDENT IS TALKING OUT OF BOTH

SIDES OF THE MOUTH.

ONE SAYS I PROTECT RIGHTS.

IN TODAY'S SPEECH PRESIDENT

OBAMA SAID QUOTE, YOU HAVE A

PRESIDENT WHO IS RIGHT THERE

WITH YOU FIGHTING EVERY STEP OF

THE WAY.

NBC POLLED AN EPISODE OF

"HANNIBAL"

IN RESPONSE TO THE BOMBING

VIOLENCE.

ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO FEATURE

CHILDREN BEING BRAINWASHED AND

BEING TURNED INTO KILLERS.

INSTEAD EXECUTIVE PRODUCER BRIAN

FULLER AIRED ANOTHER EPISODE.

JOINING US NOW BY SKYPE IS

TIM WINTER, PRESIDENT OF THE

PARENT'S TELEVISION COUNCIL.

WHAT IS ACHIEVED BY PULLING THIS

ONE PARTICULAR EPISODE?

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT OF

THE EXECUTIVES AT NBC MYSELF.

I CAN'T SEE ANY DISTINCTION.

OTHER NETWORKS HAVE

RESCHEDULED PROGRAMS THAT HAD

REFERENCES TO BOMBINGS.

DOES IT SEEM THEY ARE MISSING

THE POINT OF WHAT AFFECT

VIOLENCE HAS IN GENERAL?

I AM AMUSED OF THE ARGUMENTS

THAT SOME IN THE ENTERTAINMENT

INDUSTRY TRY TO LEVY.

OUR CONTENT DOESN'T INFLUENCE

ANYBODY'S BEHAVIOR YET 76

BILLION DOLLARS WAS SPENT LAST

YEAR ON ADVERTISING ON

TELEVISION.

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF THOSE 76

BILLION DOLLARS WAS TO CHANGE

THE BEHAVIOR OF THE VIEWER.

THE BEHAVIOR OF THE VIEWER ISN'T

INFLUENCED ONLY BY THE

COMMERCIAL, ALSO BY THE

PROGRAMS.

SO FOR THE TELEVISION NETWORKS

TO SAY WE DON'T IMPACT THE

BEHAVIOR OF THE VIEWERS, THEY

DON'T SAY THAT TO THE

ADVERTISERS, DO THEY?

THAT WOULD GO AGAINST THEIR BEST

INTEREST.

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF HYPOCRISY.

SAYING WE ARE GOING TO TAKE AWAY

A SHOW BECAUSE IT IS SENSITIVE,

WHY IS IT LESS INSENSITIVE IN A

COUPLE OF WEEKS THAN NOW?

ANSWER IS, IT ISN'T LESS

INSENSITIVE.

EVERY BIT AS OFFENSIVE TO MOST

AMERICANS.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE TV

EXECUTIVES ADDRESS OFFENSIVE

PROGRAMMING ON THEIR NETWORKS?

FIRST OF ALL, THEY HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND THE ROLE THEY PLAY,

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT TRAGIC

VIOLENCE PLAYED OUT DAILY IN OUR

NATION SOME WHERE.

MEDIA, ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY

HAS TO UNDERSTAND THEY DO PLAY A

ROLE.

THEY ARE QUICK TO POINT OUT THEY

CAN ACHIEVE POSITIVE CHANGE WHEN

THEY WANT TO SAY THAT.

WHAT THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND

THERE IS ALSO A NEGATIVE IMPACT

FROM THEIR WORK.

THEY HAVE TO STEP UP AND BE MORE

MINDFUL OF WHEN AND WHERE AND

HOW.

NO. 2, THERE NEEDS TO BE A

GREATER ACCOUNTABILITY OF THOSE

WITH OVERSIGHT.

FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS IN

WASHINGTON FCC NEEDS TO MAKE ITS

RESPONSIBILITY MORE SERIOUSLY

ENFORCE THE LAW.

UNFORTUNATELY THE FCC IS NOT

ENFORCING THE LAW.

ALL RIGHT.

TIM WINTER, THANKS FOR YOUR

WORKS, SIR.

GREAT FTO BE WITH.

HOW RESIDENTS ARE COPING WITH

DEVASTATING FLOODS IN MIDDLE

AMERICA.

RECORD SPRING FLOODING IS

PARALYZING MUCH OF THE MIDWEST.

OTHER AREAS, FLOOD WATERS ARE

JUST BEGINNING TO RECEDE.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THE STORY

REPORTER: THIS NEIGHBORHOOD

IN NORTHERN ILLINOIS.

FARMERS SAY IT IS TOO WET TO

PLANT AND LOWER YIELDS WHEN THEY

DO.

FAMILIES ARE DEALING WITH

PRECIOUS MEMORIES TURNED TO

TRASH.

I RAISED MY DAUGHTERS IN THIS

HOUSE.

MY GRAND KIDS HAVE BEEN COMING

OVER SINCE THEY WERE BORN.

FIRST LOAD WAS A WEDDING

DRESS.

FAMILIES CRYING.

PRETTY HARD.

IN MICHIGAN, FAST RISING

WATERS TURNED INTO RAPIDS

SWEEPING AWAY THIS FAMILY IN A

CREW.

ALONG MISSISSIPPI, FLOODS STILL

RISING FROM WISCONSIN TO

LOUISIANA.

CATCHING DRIVERS OFF GUARD.

IT WAS OVER MY FEET.

I WAS SITTING CHRIS CROSS IN MY

SEAT.

IN INDIANA, WAU BASH RIVER

THREATENING TO BREECH LEVIES.

IN DAKOTAS, MIX OF SNOW AND WARM

TEMPERATURES COULD BRING RIVERS

TO RECORD LEVELS.

WE HAVE OVER A FOOT OF SNOW

IN SOME AREAS, TEMPERATURES WILL

BE HEADING WELL INTO THE 70S AND

THAT SNOW RAPIDLY MELTING.

SEQUESTRATION BUDGET CUTS PUT

SOME AT A GREATER RISK.

GOVERNMENT WILL SHUT DOWN 100

GAUGES THAT WARN ABOUT FLOODING.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, YOU HAVE HEARD THE

PHRASE "DROP IT LIKE A BAD

HABIT."

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHY SOME HABITS

STICK AND OTHERS DON'T.

WELCOME BACK, IF YOU ARE LIKE

MOST PEOPLE, YOU HAVE BAD HABITS

YOU WANT TO GET RID OF.

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY, RIGHT?

I HAVE A FEW.

A DUKE UNIVERSITY STUDY SHOWS

HALF OF EVERYTHING WE DO EACH

DAY IS NOT A CONSCIOUS DECISION,

SOMETHING WE DO BY HABIT.

OUR HEALTH REPORTER TELLS US,

LORIE JOHNSON, HOW TO TAKE

CONTROL OF OUR BEHAVIOR

REPORTER: MOST OF US KNOW

FROM EXPERIENCE, BAD HABITS,

SMOKING AND EATING JUMP FOOD ARE

HARD TO BREAK AND NEW HABITS

LIKE EXERCISING EVERYDAY ARE

HARD TO KEEP.

YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO SUCCEED

WITH A NEW STRATEGY.

SCIENTISTS RECENTLY UNCOVERED AN

ENORMOUS AMOUNT ABOUT HOW HABITS

WORK IN OUR BRAINS.

EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT THE

SCIENCE OF HABITS INDICATES ANY

HABIT CAN BE CHANGED.

IN HIS BOOK "POWER OF HABIT"

EACH HABIT CONTAINS THREE PARTS,

FIRST A QUEUE THAT TRIGGERS US

TO START, THEN THE ROUTINE WHICH

IS THE BEHAVIOR ITSELF FOLLOWED

BY THE REWARD WHICH IS WHAT WE

CRAVE AND KEY TO BRAIN

REMEMBERING THAT IN THE FUTURE.

EVERYONE FROM ARISTOTLE TO

OPRAH TALK ABOUT CHANGING HABITS

AND FOCUSSED ON THE ROUTINE.

IT IS THE QUEUES AND REWARDS

THAT SHAPE HOW HABITS FUNCTION.

REPORTER: CHARLES USED

HIMSELF AS AN EXAMPLE.

IN HIS JOB AT "NEW YORK TIMES,"

HE WANTED TO BREAK HIS BAD HABIT

OF EATING A COOKIE IN THE

COMPANY CAFETERIA EVERY

AFTERNOON.

THAT IS THE ROUTINE.

FIRST HE IDENTIFIED THE QUEUE,

ALWAYS ONE OF FIVE THINGS, TIME

OF DAY, CERTAIN PLACE, PRESENCE

OF OTHER PEOPLE, PARTICULAR

EMOTION, OR SOMETHING YOU JUST

DID.

WHEN I WOULD HAVE A COOKIE

URGE, WHERE AM I SITTING?

WHAT AM I DOING?

QUEUE HIT BETWEEN 3:15 AND 3:45.

REPORTER: THEN HE

EXPERIMENTED TO DIAGNOSE THE

REWARD, DID IT SATISFY HUNGER?

NO.

AFTER EATING A FILLING APPLE, HE

STILL CRAVED A COOKIE.

WAS IT GETTING A BREAK FROM

WORK?

NO, AFTER WALKING OUTSIDE, HE

STILL CRAVED A COOKIE.

HOW ABOUT INTERACTING WITH OTHER

PEOPLE BINGO, WHEN HE SOCIALIZED

EVEN WITHOUT FOOD HE FELT

CONTENT.

THE COOKIE BECAME AN EXCUSE

FOR TALKING TO OTHER PEOPLE.

ONCE I KNEW IT WAS A CERTAIN

TIME OF DAY AND REWARDS WAS THE

SOCIAL EXPERIENCE, I COULD

RESHAPE THE BEHAVIOR, THE

ROUTINE.

I STAND UP AT 3:30 AND LOOK FOR

SOMEONE TO GO HAVE A

CONVERSATION WITH.

WALK OVER TO THEIR DESK AND GO

BACK TO MY DESK.

COOKIE URGE IS TOTALLY GONE.

REPORTER: LET'S SAY YOU WANT

TO CHANGE THE HABIT OF SMOKING A

CIGARETTE EVERY NIGHT AND QUEUE

IS FINISHING DINNER AND REWARD

IS RELAXED.

YOU NEED TO FIND A QUEUE WITH

THE SAME REWARD LIKE TAKING A

BATH.

WHAT IF YOU WANT TO START A NEW

ONE LIKE DAILY EXERCISE.

MAKE SURE THE REWARD IS

SOMETHING YOU GENUINELY ENJOY

LIKE LISTENING TO YOUR FAVORITE

MUSIC.

IF YOU GO FOR A RUN AND TELL

MYSELF I AM GOING TO REWARD

MYSELF BY EATING KALE CHIPS,

THAT IS NOT GOING TO WORK

BECAUSE NOBODY LIKES KALE CHIPS.

THEY TOLD PEOPLE GO RUNNING IN

THE MORNING, START AN EXERCISE

ROUTINE.

WHEN YOU GET BACK TO YOUR HOUSE

EAT A SMALL PIECE OF CHOCOLATE.

THIS IS COUNTER INTUITIVE.

NOBODY EXERCISES TO EAT MORE

CHOCOLATE.

AND YET IT WORKS.

CHOCOLATE IS A REWARD PEOPLE

ACTUALLY ENJOY.

BY UNDERSTANDING OUR HABITS

ARE QUEUES, FOLLOWED BY ROUTINE

AND REWARDS, WE CAN STICK WITH A

HABIT.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

GOOD ADVICE, LORIE, UP NEXT

QUILTING FOR A CAUSE, THE SKILLS

BEHIND ORGAN DONATION.

APRIL IS NATIONAL DONATE LIFE

MONTH.

A SPECIAL GROUP OF WOMEN FROM

IOWA ARE HONORING ORGAN DONATION

IN A UNIQUE WAY.

WOMEN ARE USING CREATIVITY AND

SKILL TO CREATE QUILTS FOR

DONORS.

THEY ARE PLACED ON THE HOSPITAL

BELT BEFORE THE ORGANS ARE

RECOVERED AND GIVEN TO THE

DONORS FAMILY.

NEW EACH HAVE A DIFFERENT

TALENTS.

WE TRY TO USE THOSE TALENTS TO

CREATE A NICE PRODUCT FOR

PEOPLE.

IT IS AN IMPORTANT THING WHEN

PEOPLE ARE IN A SITUATION WHERE

THEY ARE LOSING THINGS IMPORTANT

TO THEM.

NICE TO HAVE SOMETHING AS A

MEMORY.

LADIES MAKE THE QUILTS WITH

THEIR OWN MONEY AND MATERIALS

ALL FOR THE IOWA DONOR NETWORK.

I AM A HUGE QUILT FAN.

SOMETHING SO COMFORTING.

HAVE YOU EVER MADE ONE OR

WORKED ON ONE?

I DID.

MY GRANDMOTHER AND I
