TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" MORE

DETAILS, MORE DRAMA AS ANOTHER

HIGH RANKING MILITARY OFFICIALS

IS DRAGGED INTO THE PATRAEUS

SCANDAL.

PLUS THE CLINIC HELPING TO

PREVENT ABORTION BY FOCUSSING ON

THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER, NOT JUST

THE BABY.

HOW NEW TECHNOLOGY IS USED TO

MONITOR VOLCANOS HERE IN

AMERICA.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

THE SCANDAL INVOLVING CIA

DAVID PATRAEUS KEEPS EXPANDING.

GOOD EVENING I AM WENDY

GRIFFITH.

AND I AM MARK MARTIN.

THE PENTAGON IS INVESTIGATING

WHAT MAY HAVE BEEN INAPPROPRIATE

E-MAILS TO A WOMAN AT THE CENTER

OF THE PATRAEUS STORY.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS MORE IN

TONIGHT'S TOP STORY.

REPORTER: ANOTHER TOP US

COMMANDER COULD GO DOWN WITH

PATRAEUS.

GENERAL JOHN ALLEN UNDER

INVESTIGATION FOR ALLEGEDLY

SENDING INAPPROPRIATE E-MAILS TO

JILL KELLEY.

JILL KELLEY IS THE WOMAN THAT

PROMPTED THE INVESTIGATION AFTER

REPORTING E-MAILS FROM A WOMAN

HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH PATRAEUS.

THERE ARE 20-30,000 E-MAILS

BETWEEN ALLEN AND KELLY AND

DETAILS WITH PATRAEUS AND

BROADWELL LEAVING WITH FILES,

BOXES AND A COMPUTER.

IN HIS UNIVERSE, THIS MORAL

FAILING IS UNACCEPTABLE AND

RENDERS HIM UNWORTHY OF

CONTINUING THIS RESPONSIBILITY.

MORE QUESTIONS TODAY ABOUT

WHY THE FBI WAITED UNTIL AFTER

THE ELECTION TO ALERT THE WHITE

HOUSE ABOUT THE PATRAEUS AFFAIR.

LAWMAKERS SAY THE FBI WAS NOT

JUST CONDUCTING A CRIMINAL

INVESTIGATION IT WAS ALSO

LOOKING INTO WHETHER A SEPARATE

SET OF E-MAILS BETWEEN PATRAEUS

AND BROADWELL MIGHT INVOLVE A

SECURITY BREECH.

DOESN'T ADD UP WITHOUT

BRINGING IT TO THE PRESIDENT OR

HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE WHITE

HOUSE.

FBI IS EXPECTED TO PRESENT A

TIMELINE EXPLANATION TO CONGRESS

AT A MEETING ON WEDNESDAY.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

PATRAEUS DENIES GIVING

BROADWELL ANY OF THE SENSITIVE

INFORMATION FOUND ON HER

COMPUTER.

THE FBI INVESTIGATOR WAS TOO

INVOLVED NOTARY PUBLIC SENDING

SHIRTLESS PHOTOS OF HIMSELF TO

JILL KELLEY.

HE WENT AROUND THE FBI AND

STRAIGHT TO CONGRESS WHEN HE

THOUGHT THE AGENCY DIDN'T ACT

FAST ENOUGH.

JOHN JESSUP JOINS US NOW FROM

CAPITOL HILL WITH MORE.

JOHN, THIS AFTERNOON THERE WAS A

SENAT

SENATE-COMMITTEE HEARING, ANY

INFORMATION COME OF THAT

THAT HEARING IS STILL GOING

ON AS WE SPEAK.

IT IS A CLOSED HEARING.

I DID TRY TO TALK TO SENATOR

JOHN KERRY.

I CAN TELL YOU THIS, THE HEARING

WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT

BENGHAZI.

THE FOCUS HAS SHIFTED TO GENERAL

DAVID PATRAEUS GIVEN HIS

POSITION, FORMER HEAD OF THE CIA

AND SPEAR HEADING HIS OWN CIA

INVESTIGATION INTO WHAT HAPPENED

IN BENGHAZI, HE FLEW THERE, DID

INTERVIEWS WITH PEOPLE WITH THE

ACKNOWLEDGE OF THE ATTACKS, HE

WANTS HIS TRIP REPORT.

HE HAS CANCELLED HIS APPEARANCE

ON CAPITOL HILL.

SENATOR DIANE FEINSTEIN,

CHAIRMAN OF THE INTELLIGENCE

COMMITTEE IS THREATENING TO

SUBPOENA HIM SO HE CAN HAVE A

COPY OF THE REPORT.

THE MAIN REACTION ON CAPITOL

HILL IS SURPRISED AND ANGER

BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF

NOTIFICATION FROM THE FBI.

THERE ARE FEW THAT HAVE

SUGGESTED A COVER UP, THE ONLY

ONE I AM AWARE IN IS CONGRESSMAN

PETER.

THE PRESIDENT FOUND OUT ABOUT IT

AFTER THE ELECTION.

WHEN ASKED IF THIS IS

REPRESENTATIVE GIVEN THE

MISCONDUCT BY GENERAL PATRAEUS

AND POTENTIAL JOHN ALLEN, JAY

CARNIE SAYS THE PRESIDENT HAS

FULL CONFIDENCE OF THE MEN AND

MEN IN ARMED FORCES.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

A FORMER STAFF SERGEANT IS

THE FIRST LIVING RECIPIENT OF

THE MEDAL OF HONOR SINCE

VIETNAM.

IN THE WAKE OF THE PATRAEUS

SCANDAL.

THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE.

IT IS NOW ABOUT OUR MILITARY

RESPONDING IN THE RIGHT WAY.

MORAL FAILURE, I AM

DISAPPOINTED.

NO ONE IS HAPPY.

WE ARE ALL PEOPLE.

PEOPLE WILL MAKE MISTAKES.

IT IS ABOUT THE RESILIENCE AND

BOUNCING BACK.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR GENERAL

PATRAEUS NOR ARE OTHERS.

WE CAN TAKE WHAT HE HAS DONE AND

LEARN LESSONS.

IT DOESN'T MAKE HIM A TERRIBLE

PERSON.

HE HAS ALSO MADE A LOT OF GREAT

DECISIONS.

IN OTHER NEWS, GROUP OF

EVANGELICALS CALLING FOR CHANGES

TO IMMIGRATION, EVANGELICAL

TABLE INCLUDES SOUTHERN BAPTIST

LEADERS, NATIONAL HISPANIC

LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE AND LATINO

EVANGELICAL COALITION.

THEY ARE PRESSING WASHINGTON TO

MOVE QUICKLY ON IMMIGRATION

REFORM.

TODAY THEY ASKED FOR REFORM IN

92 DAYS. SHE OPENED THIS

THAT WE ARE SEEING IS

DELIGHTFUL, SOME WHAT

UNEXPECTED.

MY SENSE IS THAT THE POLITICAL

MOMENTUM IS MOVING TOWARDS

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

NUMBER 92 IS SIGNIFICANT

BECAUSE THAT IS THE NUMBER OF

TIMES THE BIBLE USES

"IMMIGRANT."

NEW FINDINGS MORE THAN HALF OF

ALL HISPANICS IDENTIFY WITH

HISPANIC ORLA TEE KNOW OVER

CHRISTIAN OR CATHOLIC.

FOUR OUT OF FIVE HISPANICS

DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS PART OF

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH.

SEVEN IN TEN SAY THE BIBLE IS

THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD, HIGHER

THAN THE 65% OF AMERICANS THAT

SAY THE SAME.

HISPANICS ARE AN IMPORTANT

DEMOGRAPHIC, IT IS OPENING A NEW

HISPANIC DIVISION TO BETTER

UNDERSTAND THE COMMUNITY.

FIGHT OVER ABORTION, SOME

ACCUSE PRO-LIE LIFERS OF ONLY

FOCUSSING ON THE CHILD AND NOT

THE MOTHER.

PAUL STRAND REPORTS.

NEW REPORTER: SOME 15-16,000

WOMEN GET ABORTIONS IN COLORADO.

MANY OF THEM RIGHT HERE.

FOR YEARS, THE SECOND LARGEST

ABORTION CLINIC CHURNING OUT

PROCEDURES HERE IN THIS DENVER

NEIGHBORHOOD.

NOW THEY HAVE A COMPETITOR.

JUST ACROSS THE STREET OF

ALMOST ANYONE HEADING TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

OFFERS WOMEN AN ALTERNATIVE AND

HELP IN THE FORM OF ULTRA SOUND,

COUNSELING, MEDICAL AND

SUPPLIES.

THIS MAN TOLD CBN NEWS, HE IS

OVERJOYED AT THE LIGHTHOUSE

OPENING.

SOME OF THE GIRLS AND MEN

KNOW IT IS THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE.

THIS IS LIKE LAST CHANCE FOR

GAS FOR A THOUSAND MILES FOR

THESE GIRLS.

IT IS CRUCIAL.

THEY COULD TURN DOWN OUR ROAD,

SEE OUR SIGN AND SOMETHING COULD

TOUCH THEIR HEART AS THEY WERE

CONTEMPLATING ABORTION FOR THEIR

BABIES.

PAULA SEWER WANTED TO PERFORM

ULTRA SOUNDS HERE AND MAKE A

POSITIVE IMPACT ON EACH WOMAN,

OR GIRL.

THERE IS NEVER A MUNDANE DAY,

THEY ARE LIFE CHANGING DECISIONS

DECISIONS.

IT IS AN HONOR TO BE PART OF

THAT FOR SOMEBODY.

A 2,000 YEAR TRADITION OF

CHRISTIANS FIGHTING TO SAVE

BABIES.

ANCIENT BABIES PUT THEM OUT

IN THE STREETS OR WILD ANIMALS

TO KILL THEM.

BUT CHRISTIANS OBSERVED THAT

2,000 YEARS AGO AND RESCUED

THOSE BABIES AND RAISED THEM AS

THEIR OWN.

THAT MADE SUCH AN IMPACT ON A

LOT OF THE ROMANS IT CAUSED THEM

TO CONVERT.

SMITS IS HAPPY THERE IS A

REAL ALTERNATIVE.

THERE IS A PLACE WHERE THEY

CAN GO AND BE RECEIVED.

HONEST, GOOD PEOPLE.

SEWER SAYS PRAYER FOLLOWS

EACH VISITOR.

ENCOUNTER MIGHT BE BRIEF.

WE DON'T FORGET THEM.

OF COURSE GOD DOESN'T FORGET.

THE LIGHTHOUSE WOMEN'S

SHELTER SAYS NO WOMAN SHOULD

GIVE UP HOPE AND NEVER GIVE UP

ON HER BABY.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS, REPORTING

FROM DENVER, COLORADO.

THANK YOU, PAUL.

CITIZENS IN 22 STATES ARE

PETITIONING THE GOVERNMENT TO

SECEDE FROM THE UNION, 157,000

IN ALABAMA, GEORGIA, AND TEXAS

THEY HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED THROUGH

THE WHITE HOUSE CALLED "WE THE

PEOPLE."

LOUISIANA WITH MORE THAN 13,000.

SOME SAY THE MOVE IS NON SENSE.

I THINK IT IS RIDICULOUS.

IT IS DUMB.

PRETTY UNNECESSARY TO

SEPARATE AND MAKE YOUR OWN

COUNTRY AWAY FROM THE UNITED

STATES, HONESTLY.

WE ARE A LITTLE SMALL.

MEANWHILE THE WHITE HOUSE

PROMISES A RESPONSE FOR

PETITIONS THAT RECEIVE MORE THAN

25,000 SIGNATURES IN 30 DAYS.

TEXAS IS THE ONLY STATE TO REACH

THAT BENCHMARK SO FAR.

TIMES WE LIVE IN.

SAUDI ARABIA MAN WILL SPEND HIS

LIFE IN PRISON.

KHALID ALI-M ALDAWSARI WAS

SENTENCED, THE FORMER TEXAS TECH

UNIVERSITY STUDENT RESEARCHED

POSSIBLE TARGETS INCLUDING POWER

PLANTS IN THE DALLAS HOME OF

FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH AND

PURCHASED CHEMICALS NEED.

.

SPECIAL IMMIGRATION APPEALS

ABU KATATA CAN'T BE DEPORTED

FROM BRITAIN.

THEY HAVE ATTEMPTED TO EXPEL HIM

SINCE 2001.

HE HAS TO WEAR A MONITOR AND

CAN'T USE THE MONITOR.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND WHAT IS

BEING DONE TO STOP IT.

THOSE LIVING IN SOUTHERN

ISRAEL THERE IS A CONSTANT

THREAT OF ROCKET ATTACKS.

ISRAEL IS SEEKING ATTACKS

AGAINST THEM.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE STORY.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU BRIEFED SOME

70 AMBASSADORS IN THE COASTAL

CITY OF ASCALON.

THE ALARM HAS SOUNTED.

ALL OF US HAVE EXACTLY 30

SECONDS TO FIND SHELTER.

INVITATION 120 ROCKETS

PUMMELED SOUTHERN ISRAEL SCORING

SEVERAL DIRECT HITS CLOSING

SCHOOLS AND SENDING SHOCK WAVES

THROUGH THE SOUTH. IN

FAMILIES HOLD PEOPLE, CHILDREN,

OLD PEOPLE ARE TARGETED ON A

DAILY BASIS CAME IN THERE, AND

NOW HIDING BEHIND CIVILIANS

WHILE FIRING ON OUR CHILDREN.

THESE VIDEOS SHOW WHAT IT IS

LIKE TO RUN FOR COVER THEN WAIT

FOR THE EXPLOSIONS.

SINCE 2001, NEARLY 13,000

ROCKETS AND MORTERS HAVE LANDED

IN ISRAEL.

MORE THAN 8,000 SINCE ISRAEL'S

PULLOUT IN 2005.

NETANYAHU SAID THE SITUATION IS

UNACCEPTABLE.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOUR

GOVERNMENTS COULD ACCEPT SUCH A

TASK. MIGHT BEING KI

ROSENFELD SAID THEY CAN HIT

ISRAELI CITIES.

THESE ARE MADE IN IRAN AND

CHINA AND MAKES ITS WAY THROUGH

THE EGYPT AND FLIES DIRECTLY

INTO THE SOUTHERN PART OF

ISRAEL.

ISRAEL OFTEN BATTLES THE

INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE TO

EXERCISE RESTRAINT.

MANY ISRAELIS ARE SAYING ENOUGH

IS ENOUGH.

NETANYAHU SAID ISRAEL WOULD

FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT TO DEFEND

ITS PEOPLE.

WE WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES

TO PUT A STOP TO IT.

IT IS SOMETHING FROM ANY FAIR

MOUNDED GOVERNMENT IN THE WORLD

THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND IT.

A RIGHT TO DEFEND OUR PEOPLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

IRANIAN CHRISTIAN SEEKS

DEPORTATION.

OFFICIALS COULD DECIDE TO SEND

RAIZA BACK.

SWEDISH AUTHORITIES REJECTED HIS

REQUEST AND QUESTIONED HIS

CONVERSION AND NOT CON VINSED HE

FACES DANGER IN IRAN.

HIS PASTOR SAYS HE HAS A DEEP

CHRISTIAN IDENTITY AND IS

ACTIVE.

UP NEXT, WHY THOSE LIVING IN

PICTURESQUE CASCADES ARE UNDER

CONSTANT DANGER.

CASCADE MOUNTAINS SURE ARE

BEAUTIFUL AND COVER A CULL DRON

OF HOT MAGMA.

FOR 100 YEARS SCIENTISTS HAVE

MONITORED VOLCANOS IN THE UNITED

STATES.

I GOT TO CHECK OUT THE RECENT

TECHNOLOGY KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE

IN THE DANGER ZONES.

CASCADE MOUNTAIN RANGE LINESES

THE UPPER HALF OF THE COAST.

THEY REPRESENT AMERICA'S

GREATEST BEAUTY ON THE SURFACE

THAT IS UNDERNEATH A ROCKY --

THE CASCADES ARE ACTIVE

VOLCANOS.

THEY HAVE ERUPTED BEFORE.

THEY WILL PRESENT A REAL HAZARD

TO THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE NEARBY.

THIS IS HOME TO MOUNT ST.

HELENS.

IT TOOK THE LIVES OF 57 PEOPLE

CAUSING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN DAMAGE AND DESTROYED

EVERY LIVING THING WITHIN 230

SQUARE MILES.

IT IS CONSIDERED THE MOST ACTIVE

VOLCANO IN THE CASCADES.

THE MASSIVE EXPLOSION PUT

VOLCANO MONITORING ON THE FAST

TRACK.

FOR EXAMPLE, AT THE TIME THERE

WAS ONLY ONE OBSERVATORY THERE

CAN BE FIVE.

YELLOW STONE, CALIFORNIA,

ALASKA, HAWAII, AND HERE IN THE

CASCADES.

BECAUSE IT CONTINUE TO ERUPT,

IT BECAME A LABORATORY TO

DEVELOP NEW INSTRUMENTATION TO

DEVELOP THE COMPUTER SOFTWARE,

ALGORITHMS THAT COULD BE USED

AUTOMATICALLY PROCESS THE

INCREASINGLY LARGE AMOUNTS OF

DATA.

JOHN AND HIS TEAM GAVE CBN

NEWS AN UP CLOSE LOOK AND 168

ACTIVE U.S. VOLCANOS, MORE THAN

HALF COULD BE POTENTIALLY

EXPLOSIVE.

THESE INSTRUMENTS ALLOW US TO

LOOK AT THE DATA IN REAL TIME

AND BUILD A MORE COMPREHENSIVE

VIEW OF WHAT THE VOLUME TA KNOW

IS DOING

SCIENTISTS EXAM THREE PRIMARY

SIGNS, HOW MUCH A VOLCANO IS

SHAKING BECAUSE OF EARTHQUAKES

OR IF IT IS SWELLING OR CHANGING

SHAPE BECAUSE OF MAGMA.

THE AMOUNTS AND VOLCANIC GASES.

IT IS IMPORTANT.

GASES DRIVE ERUPTIONS.

UNDERSTANDING VOLCANIC GASES IS

FUNDAMENTAL TO UNDERSTANDING

VOLCANIC ACTIVITY.

TAKE FOR INSTANCE THE

SPIDER...

IT IS REALLY NICE, WE CAN GET IT

CLOSE TO A VOLCANO WHERE WE HAVE

A HIGH SIGNAL WITHOUT THE NOISE

FROM THE TOWNS AND SUCH.

THE NOISE GETS CLOSER AS THE

PICTURESQUE SCENERY LURES NEW

RESIDENTS OF TOWNS AND

POPULATION CENTERS.

THE ONE WE WORRY ABOUT THE

MOST IS MOUNT RAINIER BECAUSE OF

THE VALLEYS ON THE WEST SIDE.

LOOK AT THE HOMES ON THE

BASE OF MOUNT RAINIER.

AN ERUPTION CAN SEND DEADLY MUD

FLOWS FILLED WITH ROCK, SAND AND

WATER ACROSS THE GREAT DISTANCE

DESTROYING EVERYTHING IN THEIR

PATHS.

HE BELIEVES THIS MASSIVE BOLDER

CAME TO REST AROUND 200 YEARS

AGO.

JUST ACROSS THE STREET, A

POPULATION CENTER.

THEY INTERPRET THIS AS A WARNING

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST CAN

HAPPEN AGAIN.

I DIDN'T SEE THE ERUPTION OF

ST. HELL LENS IN 1980 BUT I WAS

IN THE PHILIPPINES IN 1991.

IT WAS LIKE HAVING A HOLE BLOWN

IN YOUR WORLD.

SO MUCH BIGGER AND FASTER THAN

ANYTHING I HAD EVER SEEN.

I AM HERE IN THE TOWN OF

GOVERNMENT CAMP ONLY FIVE MILES

FROM THE SUMMIT OF MOUNT HOOD.

WHEN SCIENTISTS DETERMINE THE

RISK, THEY CONSIDER DEVELOPMENTS

LIKE THIS WHICH ARE SO CLOSE TO

THE MOUNTAIN.

HIGHEST THREAT VOLCANOS WE

HAVE IN THE UNITED STATES, THAT

IS BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MANY

PEOPLE AND INFRASTRUCTURE

NEARBY.

THAT ACCORDING TO YORK PUTS

THE PREDICTIONS AND MONITORING

TECHNOLOGY.

SCIENTISTS URGE RESIDENTS TO SEE

THE HIDDEN POTENTIAL BEFORE

DECIDING WHERE TO LIVE.

OPERATION BLESSING IS STILL

WORKING IN THE NORTHEAST.

HERE IS GOOD NEWS, GASOLINE

RATIONING ENDED IN NEW JERSEY

NJ.

THE RECOVER FROM SUPERSTORM

SANDY IS STILL SLOW.

OPERATION BLESSING IS HELPING

PEOPLE.

THEY CAME TO A RESCUE OF A

FAMILY AT THEIR WHIT'S END.

MY CAR AND MY MOM'S CAR

COMPLETELY SUBMERGED.

MY APARTMENT, EVERYTHING WAS

DESTROYED.

OPERATION BLESSING WAS A BIG

HELP.

I AM BLESSED THEY HELPED ME AND

MY MOM THROUGH THIS WORK THAT IT

WOULD HAVE TAKEN ME MORE THAN A

COUPLE OF DAYS TO DO THIS BY

MYSELF. OPERATION

BLESSING'S AID IS A COMFORT TO

MANY NEW YORKERS BEYOND

FRUSTRATED.

THEIR POWER HAS YET TO BE

RESTORED.

IT IS GETTING COLD, NOT HAVING

ANY HEAT FOR OVER TWO WEEKS.

IT IS INCREDIBLE.

SO GOOD TO SEE OPERATION

BLESSING STEPPING IN.

HOT FOOD AND BLANKETS AND

HOPEFULLY BATTERY-POWERED

HEATERS.

OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO THEM.

MINISTERING THE LOVE OF

JESUS.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF
