TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH," CIVIL

WAR IN SYRIA.

WHAT COMES NEXT AFTER THE U.S.

ANNOUNCES PROOF OF CHEMICAL

WEAPONS.

PLUS THOUSANDS EVACUATED,

LOOK AT THE DEADLY WILDFIRES

DESTROYING HOMES IN COLORADO.

AND I SIT DOWN WITH THE STARS

OF THE NEW SUMMER BLOCK BUSTER,

"MAN OF STEEL."

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I AM WENDY

GRIFFI

GRIFFITH.

AND I AM MARK MARTIN.

U.S. IS FIGHTING TO BRING DOWN

SYRIA'S REGIME.

ASSAD GOVERNMENT USED

CHEMICAL WEAPONS ON ITS OWN

PEOPLE.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY.

REPORTER: SYRIA'S CIVIL WAR

HAS RAGED FOR TWO YEARS AND

DRAGGING THE UNITED STATES INTO

THE CONFLICT.

LONGER THIS GOES THE MORE

LIKELY THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS CAN

BE USED.

REPORTER: UNDER PRESSURE THE

WHITE HOUSE IS GOING TO SUPPLY

WEAPONS TO REBELS FIGHTING TO

OVERCOME THE GOVERNMENT.

GARY LANE CAN BE CBN IS JUST

BACK FROM THE REGION.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SAYS

THEY'LL SEND SMALL ARMS, GUNS,

MORTERS AND ANTITANK MISSILES.

REPORTER: THE GOVERNMENT USED

CHEMICAL WEAPONS SARIN.

ACCUSATION THE SYRIANS REJECT.

STILL PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

REPEATEDLY SAID USE OF CHEMICAL

WEAPONS CROSSES A RED LINE.

MEANWHILE SOME CONSIDERATION OF

IMPOSING A NO-FLY ZONE NEAR

JORDANIAN BORDER ALLOWING THE

U.S. TO TRAIN.

JOHN MCCAIN STRONGLY SUPPORTS

IT.

BY GOD AMERICAN TAX PAYOR

DOLLARS HAVE BEEN TERRIBLY

WASTED.

SYRIAN UPRISING BEGAN IN 2011

FED UP BY THE REGIME, MOST

MODERATE MUSLIMS.

SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS OF JIHADIST

FIGHTERS STARTED JOINING THE

BATTLE AGAINST ASSAD.

CONCERN NOW IS HOW TO KEEP THE

AMERICAN WEAPONS FROM FALLING

INTO THE HANDS OF MUSLIM

EXTREMISTS.

THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THE

WEAPONS WILL STAY OUT OF THE

HANDS.

ONE OF THE RISKS THE

ADMINISTRATION IS WILLING TO

TAKE.

REPORTER: MORE THAN 90,000

DYING 5,000 DYING EVERY MONTH.

SOME THREE AND A HALF MILLION

FORCED FROM THEIR HOMES.

TONIGHT GROWING CONCERN THE

SYRIAN CONFLICT COULD ENGULF THE

ENTIRE REGION AS SUNNI AND SHIA

MUSLIMS BATTLE FOR POWER ACROSS

THE MIDDLE EAST.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

AS GEORGE SAID, GARY LANE IS

JUST BACK FROM THE SYRIAN

BORDER.

HE JOINS US WITH MORE.

GARY, HOW CONCERNED SHOULD WE BE

THEY ARE GOING TO FALL INTO THE

HANDS OF TERRORISTS?

EXTREMELY.

ALSO USE THEM AFTER THE WAR

AGAINST OUR PEOPLE.

THAT IS A GRAVE CONCERN.

ALSO ANTIAIRCRAFT MISSILES,

AL-QAEDA PEOPLE IN SYRIA COULD

USE THAT AGAINST COMMERCIAL

AIRLINERS.

MANY ARE CALLING FOR A NO-FLY

ZONE.

MARK, THAT WOULD LEVEL A

PLAYING FIELD.

HARD TO TAKE DOWN AN AIRCRAFT

WITH AK-47S.

THE PRESIDENT IS HESITANT TO DO

THAT, HE DOESN'T WANT TO SEE

THEM GET INTO THE HANDS OF

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS.

SYRIAN REBELS EXPRESSING

MIXED REACTION, WHY?

SOME ARE ELATED, HEY, WE ARE

GLAD TO GET HELP.

ANOTHER GROUP SAYING MR.

PRESIDENT, YOU ARE NOT GIVING US

ENOUGH.

THIS IS A HALFHEARTED MEASURE.

IT IS NOT GOING TO END THIS WAR.

WE NEED HEAVY ARMS.

PRESIDENT IS NOT WILLING TO DO

THAT.

MAYBE YOU ARE GOING TO SEE A

NO-FLY ZONE, DEFINITELY WOULD

HELP.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SEND

ANTIAIRCRAFT MISSILES.

AROUND 93,000 DEAD SINCE

2011.

GARY, ANY END IN SIGHT?

I THINK PRESIDENT BILL

CLINTON SAID IT WELL EARLIER

THIS WEEK WE NEED DECISIVE

LEADERSHIP.

MORE PEOPLE DIE.

I THINK PRESIDENT OBAMA AT THIS

POINT IS LOOKING FOR LEGACY.

WHAT DOES HE DO?

HOW DOES HE BALANCE THIS?

HOW DOES HE BECOME THE HERO?

VERY DELICATE BALANCE.

IT IS THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS.

REBELS WHO COULD ATTACK THE U.S.

OR BAD GUY WHICH IS ASSAD.

TOUGH DECISION.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE

CHRISTIANS IN THE AREA?

I MET WITH MANY ALONG THE

BORTD BORDERS, SUFFERING,

ATTACKS BY REBELS AGAINST THE

CHURCHES.

ASSAD HAS ATTACKED CHURCHES AS

HE HAS TRIED TO DRIVE REBELS OUT

OF THE CHURCHES AND CHRISTIANS

KILLED.

MANY HAVE STRONG FAITH IN THE

LORD.

THAT'S RIGHT, GARY LANE, OUR

SENIOR INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT.

WE NEED TO PRAY.

YES.

GLAD YOU ARE BACK.

WENDY?

SENATOR RAND PAUL SAYS THE

WAR -- CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN

MADE THAT ARGUMENT AT FAITH AND

FREEDOM COALITION IN WASHINGTON.

HE SAID THEY ARE SUFFERING

PERSECUTION AND ON THE RUN AND

STOP HELPING THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

CHASING THEM.

YOUR GOVERNMENT OR MORE

CORRECTLY YOU ARE HAVING TO PAY

FOR IT.

YOU ARE BEING TAXED TO MONEY TO

COMPANIES INTOLERANT OF

CHRISTIANS BUT OPENLY HOSTILE.

CHRISTIANS ARE IMPRISONED AND

THREATENED WITH DEATH FOR THEIR

BELIEFS.

SOME REGIMES PUT CHRISTIANS

TO DEATH FOR BLASPHEMY OR KILL

MUSLIMS WHO CONVERT TO

CHRISTIANITY AND ANGRY HIS TAX

DOLLARS ARE SUPPORTING THEM.

U.S. AMBASSADOR AT LARGE FOR

INTERNATIONAL FREEDOM DID NOT

SHOW UP THURSDAY.

AMBASSADOR SUSAN COOK DIDN'T

SHOW UP.

ONE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM EXPERT SAY

COOK'S ABSENCE SHOWS THE WHITE

HOUSE PUTS IT BELOW GAY MARRIAGE

AND CONTRACEPTIVES.

EDWARD SNOWDEN CLAIMS THE

OVERSEAS MONITORING GOES BACK TO

2009.

THIS IS THE LATEST REPORTER FROM

29-YEAR-OLD SNOWDEN.

THE U.S. SHOULDN'T ALLOW IT.

U.S. GOVERNMENT MONITORS

PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS OF

CITIZENS.

APPARENTLY THAT SURVEILLANCE

DOES NOT INCLUDE MOSQUES.

MOSQUES HAVE BEEN OFF LIMITS

SINCE 2011 ISLAMIST GROUPS

COMPLAINTS COMPLAINED ABOUT FBI

STING OPERATIONS TARGETING

MOSQUES.

DOZENS OF SUCCESSFUL OPERATIONS

THWARTED.

BECAUSE OF THE BAN THE FBI NEVER

CHECKED OUT THE RADICAL BOSTON

MOSQUE UNTIL DAYS AFTER THE

MARATHON BOMBING.

ERICK STAKELBECK JOINS US

WITH MORE.

ERICK, IF THE FBI STING HAD NOT

BEEN SUCCESSFUL, THE MUSLIM

GROUPS WOULD HAVE BEEN

JUSTIFIED.

THEY UNCOVERED DOZENS OF TERROR

GROUPS.

HOW CAN THE GOVERNMENT JUSTIFY

BENDING TO THIS PRESSURE.

INTERESTING, WENDY.

ONE OF THE KEY POINTS IN

COVERING THIS STORY, NSA

SURVEILLANCE DOESN'T EXTEND TO

MOSQUES.

FBI HAS NOT BEEN MONITORING

MOSQUES.

I AM NOT SAYING EVERY MOSQUE IS

A TERROR HOT BED.

IT IS A DOCUMENTED HOT BED, MANY

HAVE BEEN HATCHED INSIDE

MOSQUES.

THIS HAS BEEN AN EXTREMELY

SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM.

ON ONE HAND, WENDY, THAT GIVES

THEM THE TALKING POINT AGAINST

THE MUSLIM PRESSURE.

THESE PROGRAMS ARE NOT FULL

PROOF.

JUST TWO MONTHS AGO IN BOSTON,

HORRIFIC ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACK,

THREE PEOPLE KILLED, 264 MORE

KILLED.

APPARENTLY THE NSA PROGRAM IS

NOT COMPLETELY FULL PROOF.

IT IS A VERY, VERY COMPLEX

ISSUE, WINDOW.

GOOD POINT.

DO YOU THINK THE BOSTON BOMBING

WILL CHANGE THE WAY THE FBI

MONITORS MOSQUES?

WENDY, THAT IS A GREAT

QUESTION.

THAT VERY MOSQUES, THE TSARNEAV

BROTHERS ATTENDED IN BOSTON, I

WAS THERE A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO

AND REPORTED ON CBN NEWS.

THE MOSQUE THEY ATTENDED WAS

FOUNDED BY A CONVICTED

TERRORIST.

YET JUST YESTERDAY DIRECTOR

MULLER UNDER TESTIMONY ADMITTED

HE HAD NO IDEA ABOUT THE RADICAL

LINKS OF THE BOSTON BOMBER'S

MOSQUE.

THAT IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE FBI,

WENDY.

THAT IS ALARMING.

IF THAT IS COMING FROM THE TOP

DOESN'T GIVE ME A LOT OF

CONFIDENCE THE IGNORANT CULTURE

IS GOING TO CHANGE.

LET ME ASK YOU THIS, IF THE

GOVERNMENT IS CONTINUALLY

MOTIVATED BY POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS, ANY HOPE FROM

KEEPING CITIZENS SAFE FROM

TERROR.

YOU CAN BE POLITICALLY

CORRECT AND SAY LUCKY.

IF YOU DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THE

ENEMY.

DURING WORLD WAR II, WE CALLED

THEM NAZIS.

WE MAY NOT UNDERSTAND THEM AND

KNOW THEM.

THEY KNOW US, ALL OF OUR

WEAKNESS, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

ERICK, WE APPRECIATE YOUR

INCITES, THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

IN DEFENSE BILL COULD CREATE

TOUGH PUNISHMENTS FOR THOSE

CONVICTED IN SEXUAL ASSAULT

CASES REQUIRING MANDATORY TWO

YEAR SENTENCE FOR THOSE

CONVICTED IN MILITARY COURT.

LAWMAKERS WANT TO PUT AN END TO

EPIDEMIC ASSAULT AMONG SERVICE

MEMBERS AND CREATE A ENVIRONMENT

WHERE VICTIMS ARE NOT AFRAID TO

COME FORWARD.

FIREFIGHTERS CONTINUE TO

FIGHT THE BLACK FOREST WILDFIRE

MOST DAMAGING EVER, AT LEAST 360

HOMES DESTROYED.

NOW REPORTS FIRST VICTIMS, TWO

FOUND IN A CHARRED GARAGE.

WORSE CASE SCENARIO, THEY

WERE PACKING THEIR PERSONAL

BELONGINGS TRYING TO GET OUT.

SO SAD, FIRE NEARLY DOUBLED

IN SIZE OVERNIGHT.

FIREFIGHTERS HAVE TEMPORARILY

STOPPED IT FROM MAKING ANYMORE

PROGRESS.

COMING UP, WORLD CLASS CARS

HIT THE STREETS OF THE WORLD'S

MOST HISTORIC CITIES.

MILLIONS OF IRANIANS CAST

THEIR VOTES TODAY FOR A NEW

PRESIDENT.

NO CLEAR FRONT RUNNER IN THE

FIGHT TO SUCCEED CONTROVERSIAL

PRESIDENT AHMADENIJAD.

MANY HAVE CRITICIZED THE RACE OF

BEING RIGGED.

A CRITICISM THAT SPARKED A HARSH

REBUKE AGAINST U.S. THE

AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI.

IF NO CANDIDATE WINS THE

MAJORITIED MAJORITY, A RUNOFF

WILL TAKE PLACE.

OVER IN ISRAEL, FORMULA 1

RACING CARS TOOK TO THE STREETS.

SOME OF THE FASTEST CARS ON

EARTH DRIVE THROUGH ONE OF THE

OLDEST CITIES IN THE WORLD.

CHRIS MITCHELL WAS THERE.

REPORTER: IT WASN'T A RACE,

MORE OF AN EXHIBITION.

VARIOUS CARS INCLUDING FORMULA 1

CARS TOOK LAPS AROUND THE TWO

MILE COURSE, KING DAVID HOTEL

AND OTHER JERUSALEM LANDMARKS.

ALSO INCLUDED STUNTS ON A BMW

MOTORCYCLE.

THE EVENT IS PART OF FORMULA 1'S

PEACE ROAD SHOW TEAMS LIKE

FERRARI, MERCEDES AND LOTUS.

MANY ISRAELIS WERE THRILLED WITH

THE SHOW.

IT IS A WONDERFUL, EVEN THE

NOISE IS WONDERFUL, I HAVE BEEN

WORKING ON FORMULA 1 IN FRANCE.

I WAS BRINGING MY DAUGHTER TO

WATCH AND HEAR THE NOISE.

IT IS EXHILARATING.

MY KIDS HERE, AS YOU CAN SEE,

ON MY SHOULDERS AND HE LOVES IT.

IT IS AMAZING.

YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN JERUSALEM

LIKE THIS.

IT IS AWESOME.

[LAUGHTER].

WE SHOULD HAVE MORE LIKE THIS IN

ISRAEL.

THE ATMOSPHERE IS ELECTRIC.

IT IS GREAT.

WITH MY THREE KIDS AND WIFE AND

FRIENDS.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

I THINK IT IS COOL, ALL OF

THE THINGS THEY DO WITH THE

BIKES.

I ENJOY MYSELF HERE.

REPORTER: MAYOR BARKOT

EXPLAINED WHY IT WOULD MAKE THE

CITY A BETTER PLACE.

IT IS NO DOUBT LOOKING

AROUND, JEWS, MUSLIMS,

CHRISTIANS FOCUSSING ON THE

COMMON DENOMINATOR HOW SPORTS

BRINGS THOSE TOGETHER.

THAT IS WHY THE FORMULA 1 PEACE

ROAD SHOW WILL MAKE JERUSALEM A

BETTER PLACE, SEND A MESSAGE

JERUSALEM IS OPEN FOR ALL OF US

TO ENJOY.

REPORTER: MAYOR HOPES IT IS

AN ANNUAL EVENT.

JERUSALEM, CAPITOL OF ISRAEL,

FORMULA 1, FIRST TIME.

I HOPE IT IS THE START OF RACES

IN THE FUTURE THAT WILL BE THE

OFFICIAL FORMULA 1 RACES.

REPORTER: CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS, JERUSALEM.

LOOKS LIKE A LOT OF FUN.

UP NEXT, CBN NEWS, TAKES US

INSIDE THE NEWEST SUPERMAN

MOVIE.

WELCOME BACK.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

ANTICIPATED MOVIES OF THE

SUMMER.

"MAN OF STEEL" OPENED ACROSS THE

COUNTRY TODAY.

I HAD A CHANCE TO SIT DOWN

WITH BRITISH ACTOR HENRY CAVILL

WHO PLAYS "MAN OF STEEL."

YOU MIGHT SAY HENRY CAVILL WAS

BORN TO PLAY SUPERMAN.

ALTHOUGH UNTIL NOW MANY WERE

SAYING HENRY WHO?

ARE YOU READY FOR SUPER STARDOM

SUPERMAN IS GOING TO BRING YOU?

I AM GOING TO HAVE TO BE AS

READY AS I CAN BE.

RIDE THE WAVE AND ROLL WITH THE

PUNCHES.

IN "MAN OF STEEL" PLENTY OF

PUNCHES, SUPERMAN TRIES TO KEEP

THE GENERAL ZOD FROM WIPING OUT

LIFE ON EARTH.

LOUIS LANE TEAMS UP WITH HIM.

ISN'T SHE A HERO?

SHE IS WILLING TO PUT HER OWN

SAFETY AT RISK.

IT HAS BEEN SAID SUPERMAN IS

A TYPE OF CHRIST FIGURE.

SENDS HIS ONLY SON TO EARTH TO

SAVE MAN KIND.

SUPERMAN IS 33 YEARS OLD WHEN HE

REVEALS HIS POWERS TO THE WORLD

SAME AGE AS JESUS WHEN HE WENT

TO THE CROSS.

RELIGIOUS SYMBOLISM IS A PART OF

THE SUPERMAN STORY HE WANTED TO

EMBRACE.

ALLOWING PEOPLE TO HAVE A

CONVERSATION ABOUT WHATEVER

RELATIONSHIP THEY HAVE WITH

JESUS OR THE JESUS STORY

THROUGHOUT MOVIE IS UNDENIABLE

IN THE MATERIAL.

IF YOU DON'T INCLUDE IT IN THE

FILM, YOU REALLY SORT OF DENYING

THE MYTHOLOGY THAT IS SUPERMAN.

RUSSELL CROWE PLAYS HIS

FATHER AND KEVIN COSTNER PLAYS

HIS EARTHLY FATHER WHO REALIZES

HE HAS EARTHLY POWERS.

CAN I JUST PRETEND I AM YOUR

SON?

YOU ARE MY SON.

THAT IS THE GREAT THING ABOUT

LIFE IS MAKING DISCOVERIES ON

YOUR OWN.

A PARENT CAN FRAME IT FOR YOU

SOMETIMES.

IF YOU ADORE YOUR PARENTS, YOU

WANT TO END UP ON THE SIDE OF

WHAT YOU FEEL IS RIGHT.

WHAT DOES THE S STAND FOR?

WE LEARNED SOMETHING

INTERESTING ABOUT THE FAMOUS "S"

ON SUPERMAN'S CHEST.

IT IS NOT AN S.

IT STANDS FOR HOPE.

IT IS THE HOPE TO BEAT ALL

ODDS NO MATTER HOW GRAND.

FACING THE TROUBLES AND GOING I

WILL NOT SURRENDER.

YOU CAN SEE MY ENTIRE

INTERVIEW BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

SUPERMAN CELEBRATES ITS 75TH

ANNIVERSARY WITH "MAN OF STEEL"

IN THEATRES.

WE WERE RAISED TO BE SUPERMAN

FANS.

I KNOW WE'LL BE SEEING THIS

MOVIE.

YOU'LL BE AMAZED BY THE

RELIGIO

RELIGIOUS SYMBOLISM.

WE HAVE TO TOSS AND BREAK AND BE

RIGHT BACK.

SPEAKING OF SUPERMAN, A

SEATTLE WOMAN IS TURNING SICK

KIDS INTO SUPER HEROS.

ARMED WITH CAPES.

SHE HELPS KIDS STUCK IN THE

HOSPITAL AND AT HOME.

ROBIN FIRST STARTED SEWING CAPES

AFTER SHE LEARNED ABOUT BRENNA.

THE THINGS SHE HAD OVERCOME,

TINY SUPER HEROS.

WE ARE NOW GETTING OVER 20

NOMINATIONS, DOCTORS, GRANDMAS,

AUNTS.

SHE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO

SEW NOW SHE HAS 600 SIX CHILDREN

FROM SEATTLE TO SCOTLAND WEARING

HER CAPES AND A WAIT LIST.

I LOVE WHAT SHE SAID TINY

SUPERHEROS.

THAT MAKES THEM FEEL SO GOOD.

I LOVE THAT.

GOD'S SUPER NATURAL POWER CAN

HEAL THEM.

AMEN.
