Efrem: AND THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

AFTER EARLY MORNING

THEATRICS IN THE CAPITAL,

AND A SHORT SHUTDOWN,

LAWMAKERS APPROVED A

TWO-YEAR SPENDING PLAN.

THE DEAL APPEASED MOST

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS,

BUT INFURIATED HAWKS.

Reporter: HIGH DRAMA

IN THE U.S. SENATE.

AT MIDNIGHT, JUST AS

FUNDING FOR THE GOVERNMENT

RAN OUT, KENTUCKY SENATOR

RAND PAUL MOUNTED A

ONE-MAN PROTEST, FORCING A

TEMPORARY SHUTDOWN.

HE IS OUTRAGED THE

$400 BILLION BIPARTISAN

SPENDING PLAN ADDS

HUNDREDS TO THE NATION'S

$20 TRILLION DEBT.

THIS DEFICIT IS

EXPLODING.

THERE ISN'T THE ALARM YOU

SHOULD SEE.

Reporter: ONCE

SENATOR PAUL STEPPED

ASIDE, THE SENATE PASSED

THE DEAL 71-28.

AS MOST AMERICANS SLEPT,

BLURRY-EYED MEMBERS OF THE

HOUSE DEBATED THE MEASURE

INTO THE EARLY MORNING.

BOTH SIDES GOT MOST OF THE

SPENDING THEY WANTED.

FOR THE G.O.P., HUGE

INCREASES FOR DEFENSE.

FOR DEMOCRATS, A BIG BOOST

FOR DOMESTIC AGENCIES, AND

ALSO FUNDING FOR DISASTER

RELIEF, CHILDREN'S HEALTH

CARE, AND OPIOID

ADDICTION.

THIS AGREEMENT WILL

ALSO ALLOW US TO STEP OFF

THIS CAROUSEL OF

SHORT-TERM FUNDING.

Reporter: STILL,

DEMOCRATS PROTESTED THAT

THE BILL DOESN'T INCLUDE A

SOLUTION FOR AMERICA'S

SO-CALLED DREAMERS,

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS BROUGHT

HERE WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG.

ALL WE WANT IS A

CHANCE.

ALL WE WANT IS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS

THESE ISSUES THAT ARE

IMPORTANT TO OUR

COMMUNITIES.

Reporter: SPEAKER

PAUL RYAN PROMISES TO WORK

ON AN IMMIGRATION MEASURE,

ONE PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN

SUPPORT.

MY COMMITMENT TO

WORKING TOGETHER ON AN

IMMIGRATION MEASURE WE CAN

MAKE LAW IS A SINCERE

COMMITMENT.

WE WILL SOLVE THIS DACA

PROBLEM.

SOMETIMES I THINK THE

SPEAKER THINKS HE IS THE

SPEAKER OF THE WHITE

HOUSE, NOT THE SPEAKER OF

THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS EXPECTED TO SIGN

THE BILL.

IN FACT, THE WHITE HOUSE

NEVER SHOWED SIGNS IT WAS

WORRIED THE BILL WOULDN'T

PASS.

NOW THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS

FUNDED FOR TWO YEARS,

CONGRESS CAN ACT OUTSIDE

THE THREAT OF A CONSTANT

SHUTDOWN.

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS LOOKING TO LOWER

PRESCRIPTION DRUG COSTS

FOR MEDICARE BEN FISH

BENEFICIARIES.

SENIORS WOULD BE ABLE TO

SHARE IN THE REBATES FOR

INDIVIDUAL DRUGS THEY

PURCHASE AT THE PHARMACY.

AND IT WOULD EXPAND

MEDICARE'S CATASTROPHIC

DRUG BENEFIT SO MANY

SENIORS WITH VERY HIGH

COSTS WOULD NOT FACE

CO-PAYS.

THE BUDGET PLAN IS SET TO

BE RELEASED NEXT WEEK.

PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE

WORLD GATHERED IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. ON

THURSDAY MORNING FOR THE

ANNUAL PRAYER BREAKFAST.

CONGRESSMAN STEVE SCALISE

SPOKE AT THE EVENT.

LAST YEAR HE WAS SHOT AT A

CONGRESSIONAL BASEBALL

EVENT, BUT HE SURVIVED.

HE PUBLICLY PRAISED GOD

FOR HELPING SURVIVE THAT

SHOOTING.

THE FIRST THING I

THOUGHT OF WAS TO PRAY.

I JUST STARTED PRAYING.

I SAID, I'M GOING TO PUT

THIS IN GOD'S HANDS, AND,

BELIEVE ME, GOD ANSWERED

THOSE PRAYERS.

THERE WERE MIRACLES THAT

HAPPENED ON THAT BASEBALL

FIELD THAT DAY.

NOT JUST TO SAVE MY LIFE,

BUT SO MANY OTHERS.

Efrem: HE WENT ON TO

THANK THE CAPITAL POLICE

AND OTHER CONGRESSMEN AT

THE GAME WHO HELPED TO

SAVE HIS LIFE.

> THE WINTER OLYMPICS

ARE UNDERWAY AND FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN HISTORY,

NORTH KOREA AND SOUTH

KOREA ARE COMPETING BEHIND

THE SAME FLAG.

KIM JONG-UN'S SISTER

ARRIVED.

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE

IS ALSO THERE, HOPING TO

MAKE A STATEMENT WITH HIS

GUEST, FRED WARMBIER, THE

FATHER OF OTTO WARMBIER,

WHO DIED AFTER HE WAS

RELEASED FROM A NORTH

KOREAN JAIL.

AS THE GAMES UNFOLDED, THE

UNEASINESS OF A POTENTIAL

WAR STILL DOES LINGER.

> A SLAIN RABBI IS BEING

HONORED AFTER HE WAS

BRUTALLY STAND BY AN

ISRAELI ARAB WHILE WAITING

AT A BUS STOP.

DAVID FRIEDMAN IS NOW

CRITICIZING PALESTINIAN

LEADERS WHO ARE PRAISING

THE MAN'S MURDER.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THIS STORY.

Chris: THOUSANDS OF

MOURNERS GATHERED IN THIS

JURCOMMUNITY.

BEN GAL WAS KILLED ON

MONDAY WHILE HE WAITED AT

A BUS STOP.

ISRAELI OFFICIALS LAUNCHED

A MASSIVE SEARCHER FOR THE

ATTACKER.

THE JEWISH COMMUNITY LIES

IN THE DISPUTED TERRITORY

OF BIBLICAL JUDEA AND

SAMARIA, ALSO KNOWN AS THE

WEST BANK.

THE REGIONAL HEAD OF THE

SAMARIAN COUNCIL CALLED ON

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU TO

TRANSFORM THIS AREA INTO A

CITY, AND SAID THAT WOULD

BE AN APPROPRIATE RESPONSE

TO THE MURDER.

DAVID FRIEDMAN CRITICIZED

PALESTINIAN LEADERS WHO

BRACED THE MURDER.

FOR EXAMPLE, HAMAS SAID

THEIR ORGANIZATION

WELCOMED SUCH SUCCESSFUL

OPERATIONS.

ON THE OTHER HAND,

FRIEDMAN TWEETED, 20 YEARS

AGO, I DELIVERED AN

AMBULANCE, HOPING IT WOULD

DELIVER HEALTHY BABIES,

BUT, INSTEAD, A MAN WAS

JUST MURDERED, LEAVING

BEHIND A WIFE AND TWO

CHILDREN.

PALESTINIAN LEADERS

PRAISED THE KILLER.

BEN GAL BECAME THE SECOND

MURDER WITHIN A MONTH.

A HUSBAND AND FATHER OF

SIX WAS MURDERED IN A

DRIVEBY SHOOTING.

IN RESPONSE TO THAT

KILLING, THE ISRAELI

CABINET AUTHORIZED THE

CREATION OF A NEW

COMMUNITY IN SAMARIA.

ISRAELI FORCES KILLED THE

TERRORIST WHO KILLED THE

RABBI.

AKMED GERARD WAS

DISCOVERED WITH AN M-16

AND AN EXPLOSIVE PACK.

AFTER THE ATTACK, THEY

SAID A SETTLER HAD BEEN

KILLED.

THEY POSTED A PICTURE OF

GERARD, ALONG WITH HIS

FATHER, WHO WAS KILLED 16

YEARS AGO BY ISRAELI

SECURITY FORCES AFTER

PLANNING TWO UNSUCCESSFUL

TERROR ATTACKS, A SUICIDE

BOMBING IN A HOSPITAL, AND

A TRUCK BOMBING.

FATAH ALSO POSTED A VIDEO

OF MONDAY'S ATTACK AND

CALLED IT AN OPERATION.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN'S,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: STILL TO COME

HERE ON CBN "NEWSWATCH,"

SUPPORTING THE JEWISH

STATE.

SEE HOW NEW WHITE HOUSE

LEADERSHIP HAS CHANGED THE

ISRAELI-AMERICAN

RECALLING.

*

Efrem: ONE OF THE

BIGGEST CHANGES FROM THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO

THE PRESIDENT TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN

AMERICA'S TREATMENT OF

ISRAEL.

PAUL STRAND BRINGS US THIS

STORY.

Reporter: THERE IS

TALK ABOUT OF HOW THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

WEAPONIZED MANY AGENCIES.

THEY KNOW IT IS TRUE

BECAUSE THEY HAD TO FIGHT

SOME OF THOSE WEAPONS IN A

YEAR'S LONG STRUGGLE WITH

THE I.R.S.

IT APPEARS IT IS JUST

BECAUSE THEY ARE

NON-PROFIT, THEY HAVE BEEN

A LITTLE TOO FRIENDLY WITH

THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

THEY WANTED A TAX

EXEMPTION FOR "Z STREET."

BY THE I.R.S. HELD UP

THEIR APPLICATION FOR

SEVEN YEARS, BEGINNING IN

AND CONTINUING THROUGH THE

OBAMA YEARS.

THERE IS A SPECIAL UNIT

IN WASHINGTON, D.C. WHICH

LOOKS AT THESE

APPLICATIONS TO DETERMINE

WHETHER THE ORGANIZATION'S

ACTIVITIES ARE

INCONSISTENT WITH OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION'S POLICIES.

Reporter: THEY

BELIEV"Z" STREETBELIEVES IN THE RIGHT OF

PEOPLE TO LIVE ANYWHERE.

AND IT INCLUDES THE

OCCUPIED TERRITORIES,

WHICH INCLUDES CITIES AND

TOWNS CALLED SETTLEMENTS.

THE I.R.S. OFFICIALS

TRIED TO SEE WHETHER THEY

COULD PROVOKE TAX EXEMPT

STATUS FOR ORGANIZATIONS

THAT SUPPORT WHAT IS

CALLED THE SETTLEMENT.

Reporter: THAT'S AN

EXAMPLE OF WHAT IS CALLED

VIEWPOINT DISCRIMINATION,

WHERE AN ORGANIZATION GETS

TREATED DIFFERENTLY BY THE

GOVERNMENT BECAUSE ITS

VIEWPOINTS ARE DIFFERENT

FROM THE GOVERNMENT'S

VIEWPOINT.

THIS WAS PART OF AN

OVERWHELM CAMPAIGN BEING

WAGED BY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TO ISOLATE

ISRAEL FOR ITS SETTLEMENT

ACTIVITY.

Reporter: BUT THE

MARCUSES ARE LAWYERS, AND

SO "Z" STREET SUED THE

U.S., SAYING THAT THEY

DENIED THEM THEIR

APPLICATION FOR TAX EXEMPT

AS A NON-PROFIT GROUP.

ONE OF THE ARGUMENTS

WAS...

WE CAN'T SUE THEM

BECAUSE THEY'RE THE

GOVERNMENT.

EXCUSE ME?

I MEAN, THE BILL OF RIGHTS

WAS CREATED TO PROTECT

CITIZENS FROM

CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS

BY THE GOVERNMENT.

Reporter: THE TAX

AGENCY THEN HINTED THAT

MAYBE "Z" STREET WOULD BE

SUPPORTING TERRORISM IF IT

SUPPORTED ISRAEL.

ISRAEL IS WHERE

TERRORISM HAPPENS, THEY'RE

NOT THE PERPETRATORS OF

TERRORISM.

Reporter: AND THE

MARCUSES FOUND THAT THE

GOVERNMENT WAS ASKING

QUESTIONS ABOUT OTHER

ISRAEL NON-PROFIT GROUPS.

THEY WERE ASKED, WHAT

ARE YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS

ABOUT THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

THAT IS ASTOUNDING THAT

ANYONE AT THE I.R.S. WOULD

THINK THAT WOULD BE A

LEGITIMATE QUESTION.

Reporter: THE FEDS

FINALLY GAVE UP ON

FEBRUARY 1st.

I'M SURE THEY THOUGHT

THEY WOULD GRIND US TO

DUST.

THEY DIDN'T REALIZE WE'RE

LIKE TERRIERS.

Reporter: THAT WAS

"Z" STREET'S FIGHT WITH

THE GOVERNMENT.

BUT THERE IS EVIDENCE OF

THIS ANTIFFNY TOWARDS

ISRAEL.

DURING THE OBAMA YEARS --

IT ISOLATED ISRAEL AS A

POLICY.

THE TENDENCY TO SHIFT

TOWARDS IRAN, IN

PARTICULAR.

AND THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD, THIS WAS THE

INCLINATION OF THE OBAMA

GOVERNMENT.

WE PROVIDE ROUGHLY

$600 MILLION A YEAR AS

U.S. TAXPAYERS TO THE

PALESTINIANS.

Reporter: DOLLARS

FROM GOVERNMENT AGENCIES,

LIKE THE USID, ARE

SUPPOSED TO BASICALLY BE

CHARITY.

BUT IT CAN BE HARD TO FIND

OUT WHICH WHERE THE MONEY

IS OR ISN'T GOING.

THIS MAN IS WITH M.G.O.

MONITOR IN ISRAEL.

HE SAYS THE PROBLEM HAS

BEEN THAT...

IT IS DIFFICULT TO

ASCERTAIN WHICH

ORGANIZATIONS WERE

RECEIVING FUNDS AND FOR

WHAT PURPOSE.

SOME OF THE FUNDS ARE

EASIER TO TRACK THAN

OTHERS.

OVER ALL, THOUGH, I THINK

THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER HAS

REACHED A POINT OF

FRUSTRATION.

Reporter: AS TRUMP

HIMSELF MIGHT POINT OUT,

THERE IS STILL THE DEEP

STATE OF THE WASHINGTON

SWAMP THAT NEEDS TO BE

CLEARED OUT BEFORE SUCH

PROBLEMS CAN BE TOTALLY

CLEARED UP.

PAUL STRAND REPORTING FROM

PENN VALLEY, PENNSYLVANIA.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD

HERE ON CBN "NEWSWATCH,"

WE'RE SITTING DOWN IN

"STUDIO 5" WITH ACTOR

GREGORY ALLEN WILLIAMS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: ACTOR GREGORY

ALLEN WILLIAMS HAS A

FAMILIAR FACE AND A

FAMILIAR VOICE.

AND HE HAS A LONG LIST OF

ACTING CREDITS, INCLUDING

"BAYWATCH AND "GREEN

LEAF."

HE IS SITTING DOWN WITH US

THIS WEEK IN "STUDIO 5" TO

TALK ABOUT WHAT INSPIRES

HIS ACTING ROLES.

PHOTOGRAPHS PAINT A

PICTURE OF THE LONG AND

SUCCESSFUL CAREER OF ACTOR

GREGORY ALLEN WILLIAMS.

DEAR FRIENDS IN CHRIST,

THE REVEREND MICHAEL

SPURLOCK.

Efrem: "STUDIO 5"

CAUGHT UP WITH HIM ON THE

SET OF "ALL SAINTS,"

PLAYING THE ROLE OF A

MINISTER.

YOU SWORE TO OBEY, EVEN

WHEN YOU DISAGREE.

Efrem: WHAT WAS THIS

ABOUITABOUT THIS STORY THAT

ATTRACTED YOU.

I'M A PRETTY

SENTIMENTAL PERSON -- LOVE

ONE ANOTHER.

AND MANY YEARS AGO I HAD A

MENTOR WHO ASKED ME TO

VOLUNTEER AT A FOOD

PANTRY.

I HAD GONE TO THIS

INDIVIDUAL SEEKING

SPIRITUAL GUIDE LANS.

AND HE SAID -- AND WE HAD

A LONG CONVERSATION.

AND WE DIDN'T TALK

SCRIPTURE.

WE DIDN'T PRAY.

HE ASKED ME TO VOLUNTEER

AT THIS FOOD PANTRY, AND I

DID.

AND VERY SOON IT BECAME

THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY WEEK,

WORKING AT THE PANTRY.

AND AT THE SAME TIME, I

HAD ANOTHER MENTOR WHO

USED TO SAY, I SOUGHT MY

GOD, AND MY GOD ILL

ALLUDEALLUDEDME.

AND I SOUGHT MY SOUL, AND

MY SOUL ALLUDED ME.

AND SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDST

OF VOLUNTEERING IN THAT

FOOD PANTRY, I REALIZED

WHAT THEY HAD CONSPIRED,

YOU SEE.

THEY SAID, WE'LL FIRST

RESTORE THIS YOUNG MAN TO

HIS FELLOWSHIP.

Efrem: YOU'RE A

BISHOP IN THIS FILM, AND

YOU'RE SORT OF A BISHOP'S

RIGHT HAND IN "GREEN

LEAF," IF WE CAN SAY THAT.

A BISHOP'S RIGHT HAND?

[LAUGHTER]

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU

ONE DAY.

PIME GOING TI'M GOING TO GIVE YOU ONE

DAY TO MAKE THIS RIGHT.

I WONDER ABOUT THAT

MYSELF, BUT I THINK THAT

IS THE GREAT GIFT THAT MY

GOD HAS GIVEN ME, IS TO

TASK ME TO PLAY A

PEDOPHILE, A SEXUAL

PREDATOR, IN ONE PROJECT

SO THAT FOLKS' EYES MAY BE

OPENED, THAT WE HAVE TO

KEEP AN EYE ON OUR

CHILDREN.

THAT IT IS SPIRITUAL

PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION.

THAT THE CHURCH IS NOT

GOD.

SO -- AND THEN TO ALLOW ME

TO BE A PART OF "ALL

SAINTS," THIS WONDERFUL,

THIS BEAUTIFUL FILM, YOU

KNOW, IT'S SORT OF LIKE

REDEMPTION.

[LAUGHTER]

Efrem: YES.

SO IT'S LIKE, WOW!

AND THERE IS YET A SECOND

PROJECT CALLED, "A

QUESTION OF FAITH," WITH

KIM FIELDS.

AND MY CHARACTER IS A

PASTOR TURNING OVER HIS

CHURCH TO HIS SON, AND

TRAGEDY STRIKES, AND MY

CHARACTER BECOMES THE

SPIRITUAL CENTER.

Efrem: IS THAT

SOMETHING EASY FOR YOU TO

TAP INTO?

WHAT IS IT?

IT'S EASY BECAUSE I

HONOR IT.

I REMEMBER THOSE

MINISTERS.

I WAS MENTORED BY THESE

MEN, AND THESE MEN WERE MY

HESHEPHERDS.

AND I HAVE GREAT RESPECT

FOR THEM.

AND SO WHEN I'M ASKED TO

PORTRAY A SHEPHERD, I TAKE

IT VERY SERIOUSLY, BUT IT

IS INSIDE OF ME.

AND TAKING IT FURTHER, I

ATTENDED A JESUIT BOARDING

SCHOOL -- YOU UNDERSTAND

WHAT I'M GETTING AT.

Efrem: RIGHT.

I HAVE THE UTMOST

RESPECT AND IT'S AA JOY A JOY FOR

ME.

I THINK IT IS INSIDE OF

ME.

FOR A LONG TIME PEOPLE

HAVE TOLD ME THAT THEY

THOUGHT THE MINISTRY WAS

MY CALLING.

AND I REMEMBER HAVE

TOGETHER DISCUSSION WITH

MY MOTHER ONCE.

AND SHE SAID, WELL, SON,

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

MINISTRIES.

SO MAYBE REAL PREACHERS

ARE BUSY IN THEIR

MINISTRIES AND ATTENDING

THEIR FLOCKS AND THE

MINISTRIES THEY'VE BEEN

GIVEN, AND SO IT IS FOR ME

TO PRETEND TO IMPERSONATE

THEM AND HOPEFULLY DO IT

WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT I

MEAN?

AND REPRESENT THEM WELL.

Efrem: YOU DO A GREAT

JOB.

NOW, YOU'RE NOT ONLY AN

ACTOR, BUT YOU'RE AN

AUTHOR AS WELL.

YOU'VE WRITTEN A FEW

BOOKS.

ONE THAT TOUCHED ME IS

WHERE YOU TALK ABOUT HOW

YOU WERE ABLE TO SAVE A

JAPANESE-AMERICAN DURING

THE L.A. RIOTS.

WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER MOST

ABOUT THAT?

YOU KNOW, IT WAS MY

HANDS WHO, YOU KNOW,

GRABBED ON TO HIM.

BUT I WROTE A BOOK CALLED

"THE GATHERING OF HEROS,"

AND I WAS COMPELLED TO

WRITE IT BECAUSE WE SORT

OF MAKING ME OUT TO BE A

HERO.

THE POINT I HAD TO MAKE IS

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN I

WOULD HAVE ARRIVED AT THAT

INTERSECTION TO HARM,

RATHER THAN TO HELP, AND

SO THE BOOK IS ABOUT THOSE

WHO GATHERED FOR ME, TO

SAVE ME FROM MYSELF, SO I

MIGHT DO THE WILL OF GOD

ON THAT PARTICULAR CORNER.

AND WHEN I SAY THAT, I

DON'T MEAN TO SAY THAT IN

ANY LOFTY WAY.

WHEN I SAY "THE WILL OF

GOD," I SAY GOOD ORDERLY

DIRECTION.

I'M NOT CLAIMING THERE WAS

SOME SORT OF DIVINE THING

GOING ON WITH ME, BUT AT

LEAST MY MIND AND MY HEART

WAS ORDERED ENOUGH NOT TO

STAND IN THE PRESENCE OF

AN INDIVIDUAL BEING

DEPRIVED OF THEIR LIBERTY

AND NOT DO ANYTHING.

Efrem: GREGORY ALLEN

WILLIAMS, A TRUE

INSPIRATION, AND HE IS

ALSO THE AUTHOR OF "WORKS

OF FICTION."

BE SURE TO CHECK A

BOOKSTORE OUT AND CHECK

OUT HIS WORKS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

DLSH

THE MOVIE "15:17 TO

PARIS" SETTLES IN FOR THE

STORY OF A TRAIN RIDE, A

HIGH-SPEED TRIP FROM

AMSTERDAM TO PARIS ON

AUGUST 21, 2015.

THIS WAS A TRIP HEADED FOR

DISASTER AS A TERRORIST

BOARDED THE TRAIN WITH AN

ASSAULT RIFLE, A PISTOL,

AND ENOUGH AMMUNITION TO

KILL EVERYBODY ON BOARD.

THANKFULLY, THAT DIDN'T GO

THE WAY THE KILLER HAD

HOPED, AND IT WAS ALL DUE

TO THREE SELF-PROCLAIMED

REGULAR GUYS WHO JUST

HAPPENED TO BE AT THE

RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT

TIME.

WE FELT LIKE LIFE WAS

PUSHING US TOWARDS

SOMETHING, A GREATER

PURPOSE.

Reporter: THIS HEROIC

TRIO, ANTHONY SADLER, ALEK

SKARLATOS, AND SPENCER

STONE DID THE ALMOST IN

THINKABLE.

RATHER THAN DUCK FOR COVER

OR TRY TO ESCAPE, ALL

THREE WENT TOWARDS THE

TERRORIST TO HOPEFULLY

TAKE THE MADMAN DOWN.

THIS FILM DIRECTED BY

CLINT EASTWOOD SHOWCASES

FAITH AND HEROISM IN

ABUNDANCE.
