MORE QUESTIONS FROM CONGRESS

TODAY ABOUT THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION'S OF DRONE

STRIKES THAT TARGET AMERICANS

WORKING FOR AL-QAEDA OVERSEAS.

CBN NEWS HAS TEAM COVERAGE

BEGINNING WITH THIS REPORT FROM

HEATHER SELLS.

REPORTER: TAKING OFFICE IN

2009, THE USE OF DRONES HAVE

GROWN 700%.

AMERICA LAUNCHES THEM FROM A

SECRET BASE IN SAUDI ARABIA.

THE GOVERNMENT THINKS IT IS OKAY

TO USE DRONES TO KILL AMERICANS

OVERSEAS.

THEY BELIEVES THAT CITIZEN POSES

AN IMMINENT THREAT.

HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATES DISAGREE.

IT JUSTIFIES THAT THE

EXECUTIVE BRANCH CAN BE JUDGE,

JURY AND EXECUTIONER.

2011 THE U.S. KILLED ANWAR

AL-AWLAKI.

HE WAS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN AND A

TOP AL-QAEDA LEADER.

DRONE STRIKES WILL GROW IN

IMPORTANCE IN THE FUTURE.

MORE THOUGHTFUL DEBATE ABOUT

THEIR USE IS NEEDED.

IF THE THRESHOLD GETS TOO LOW

AND TOO CASUAL, WE'LL FORGET HOW

MUCH SCAR TISSUE WE BUILD UP

REPORTER: THAT SCAR TISSUE IS

GROWING.

IN PAKISTAN ALONE, DRONE STRIKES

HAVE KILLED THOUSANDS OF

TERRORISTS AND MORE THAN 300

CIVILIANS.

THE ADMINISTRATION'S USE OF

DRONE ATTACKS IS -- JOHN BRENNAN

FACES INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

THIS AFTERNOON AND ALSO FACED

SEVERAL INTERRUPTIONS FROM WAR

PROTESTERS.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

REFUSED TO EVEN TELL CONGRESS!

THEY BRIEFLY HALTED THE

HEARING TO CLEAR THE PROTESTERS

FROM CODE PINK.

THE FIGHT AGAINST AL-QAEDA IS

FAR FROM OVER.

THE 21ST DIRECTOR OF THE CIA,

I WOULD TAKE IT TO INSURE THE

CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY IS

THE BEST SERVICE IT CAN BE AND

ONE THAT MAKES ALL AMERICANS

PROUD.

STILL AT WAR WITH AL-QAEDA

AND UNDER DAILY CYBER ATTACKS BY

FOREIGN ENEMIES.

JOINING US FROM WASHINGTON IS

OUR CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT,

JOHN JESSUP.

JOHN HAS BEEN FOLLOWING THE

CONFIRMATION HEARING.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTED JOHN

BRENNAN FOUR YEARS AGO.

WHAT HAS CHANGED TO MAKE THE

WHITE HOUSE THINK HE CAN WIN THE

NOMINATION.

BRENNAN WITH DREW THE

NOMINATION GIVEN THE FACT THIS

HE HAD DEEP FAMILIARITY TO THE

CIA'S DEEP TACTICS, FOUR YEARS

LATER SEEN WITH A MAN OF MUCH

MORE CREDIBILITY.

TRUSTED OBAMA ADVISER ADVISING

HIM ON COUNTERTERRORISM, 25

YEARS OF SERVICE WITH CIA AND

SEEN AS PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

ARCHITECT ON THE WAR ON

AL-QAEDA.

REPUBLICANS WILL PRESS HIM ON

LEAKED SECURITY DETAILS ON THE

RUN UP TO LAST YEAR'S ELECTION

CYCLE.

BOTH PARTIES WILL ASK HIM ABOUT

THE USE OF DRONES.

WE HAVE BEEN HEARING A LOT MORE

IN RECENT DAYS.

HE IS GOING TO BE GETTING A

GRILLING ON CAPITOL HILL ABOUT

THAT.

THE ISSUE OF DRONES HAS BEEN

IN THE NEWS FAR WHILE.

WHY DID THE WHITE HOUSE RELEASE

MEMOS OUTLINING THE LEGAL BASIS

NOW?

REPORTER: IT HAS BEEN IN THE

MEDIA QUITE A BIT.

THE THING THAT HAS MADE IT

DIFFERENT.

THE ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN

VERY, VERY SECRETIVE OF DRONES.

THERE WAS A MEMO THAT SAID IT IS

OKAY FOR THEM TO KILL AMERICANS

IF THEY ARE WORKING WITH THE

TERRORIST.

DEMOCRATS SENATORS RON WHITE OF

OREGON.

THIS WAS AN ATTEMPT TO ALIE

THOSE CONCERNS.

OKAY.

JOHN JESSUP, WE APPRECIATE IT

REPORTER: THANK YOU, MARK.

CHUCK HAGEL'S VOTE FOR

DEFENSE SECRETARY WAS POSTPONED.

THEY WANT TO KNOW IF HAGEL GOT

MONEY DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY

FROM FOREIGN SOURCES AND WHY HE

QUESTIONS AND CAN'T VOTE UNTIL

THEY HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION

THEY NEED.

IRAN'S SUPREME LEADER

REJECTED THE TALKS, AYATOLLAH

KHOMEINI WAS RESPONDING TO AN

AUTHOR BY VICE PRESIDENT JOE

BIDEN TO SPEED ONE ON ONE.

AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI TOLD MEMBERS

OF IRAN'S AIR FORCE, THAT TALKS

WOULD NOT SOLVE PROBLEMS.

KHOMEINI SAYS YOU AMERICANS HAVE

POINTED GUNS TO IRAN, AT THE

SAME TIME, YOU WANTED TO

NEGOTIATE.

IRANIAN MILITARY WILL NOT BE

INTIMIDATED.

NEW RESTRICTIONS ON PAYMENTS FOR

IRANIAN OIL.

IRAN IS EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE

IN NUCLEAR TALKS WITH THE U.N.

SECURITY COUNCIL AND GERMANY IN

KAZIC STAN.

THE AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI'S REMARKS

SUGGESTS IRAN WILL STICK TO

DEMANDS FROM ECONOMIC PRESSURE.

MEANWHILE IRAN'S PRESIDENT SAYS

ISLAMIC REPUBLIC IS ALREADY A

NUCLEAR STATE.

IRANIAN PRESIDENT, MAHMOUD

AHMADENIJAD TOLD AN EGYPTIAN

NEWSPAPER.

HE MAY NOT BE FAR FROM THE

TRUTH.

RETIRED GENERAL AMIS ADDLIN SAYS

IRAN ONLY NEEDS FOUR TO SIX

MONTHS TO ENRICH ENOUGH

MILITARY-GRADE URANIUM TO BUILD

A BOMB.

FOUR TO SIX MONTHS IS NOT

SUCH THAT THEY THINK THEY CAN

GET AWAY WITH IT.

TO BE MUCH SHORTER AND WAITING

FOR THE EXTENSION WILL BE MOVED

FROM THEM.

IRANIANS COULD CROSS BENT

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU'S RED LINE.

NETANYAHU SAID STOPPING IRAN

FROM ARMING ITSELF FROM NUCLEAR

WEAPONS WILL BE THE SUPREME

MISSION.

HERE AT HOME, BATTLE OVER

BUSINESS FROM TEXAS AND

CALIFORNIA BUSINESSES.

THE LONE STAR STATE.

COME CHECK OUT TEXAS.

REPORTER: JERRY BROWN

DISMISSED THE ADS IN COLORFUL

LANGUAGE SAYING HE DOESN'T

BELIEVE ANYONE WOULD LEAVE.

CALIFORNIA COULD BE ON THE

LOSING END.

CRITICS SAY PERRY'S ADS SAY IT

HAS DRAGGED DOWN BUSINESSES IN

THE GOLDEN STATE FOR YEARS.

A LOT OF THINGS KEEPING THEM

FROM INNOVATING AND GROWING

THEIR BUSINESS

REPORTER: IT IS NOT JUST A

PROBLEM FOR BUSINESSES.

GETTING AWFULLY EXPENSIVE TO BE

A MILLIONAIRE.

PHIL MICKELSON, CHAMPIONSHIP

GOLFER SAID HE MIGHT LEAVE

CALIFORNIA FOR A STATE WITHOUT

INCOME TAX.

HE OFTEN COLLECTED MILLION

DOLLAR PURSES FOR HIS

TOURNAMENTS AND 13.3% INCOME TAX

COMBINED WITH FEDERAL TAXES IS

HITTING HIM HARD.

SUNDAY, HE WON MORE THAN A

MILLION DOLLARS, 40% WENT TO

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, 13.3% TO THE

STATE OF CALIFORNIA, 5% TO THE

STATE OF ARIZONA.

THE ORIGINAL PURPOSE INTO TO

TAXES.

GOVERNOR PERRY OFFERED MICKELSON

HOSPITALITY.

HE SAID HEY, PHIL, WE WOULD LOVE

TO HAVE YOU AS WELL.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

NORTHEAST IS BRACING FOR WHAT

IS BEING CALLED A HISTORIC

BLIZZARD.

STORM WILL BEGIN FRIDAY MORNING

AND LAST THROUGH SATURDAY.

SOME AREAS OF NEW ENGLAND COULD

RECEIVE TWO FEET OF SNOW.

ROAD CREWS HAVE SALT AND SAND

READY TO GO.

FOLKS ARE WASTING NO TIME FOR

THE SNOWY CONDITIONS.

OUR SNOW BLOWER IS IN FOR

REPAIRS.

I'LL GET SHOVELS.

IT COULD CAUSE BLIZZARD

CONDITIONS THAT WOULD MAKE

TRAVELING HAZARDOUS.

COMING UP, HAS AMERICA SEEN

THE END OF THE TEA PARTY

MOVEMENT?

THOUSANDS GATHERED FOR THE

NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST,

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS HIS SECOND

INAUGURATION CAUSED HIM TO FOCUS

ON THE POWER OF FAITH.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: SOMETIMES I

SEARCH SCRIPTURE TO DETERMINE

HOW BEST TO BALANCE LIFE AS A

PRESIDENT, HUSBAND, AND AS A

FATHER.

OFTEN SEARCH FOR SCRIPTURE TO BE

A BETTER MAN AS WELL AS A BETTER

PRESIDENT.

WE ARE UNITED IN THESE

STRUGGLES.

WE ARE UNITED IN THE KNOWLEDGE

OF A REDEEMING FAITH.

FOR THE MULTITUDE OF SINS AND

LOVE NEVER FAILS.

WORLD RENOWNED BENJAMIN

CARSON CLAIMED JESUS IS HIS ROLE

MODEL.

DR. CARSON CRITICIZED HIGHER

TAXES ON THE PRESIDENT AND

ADVOCATED CHANGES THAT PROMOTE

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY NOT MORE

GOVERNMENT CONTROL.

THE TEA PARTY WAS THE MOST

POWERFUL FORCE IN POLITICS.

IS IT DEAD?

SOME POLITICIANS SAY YES.

THE TEA PARTY ITSELF PLANS TO

HAVE THE FINAL WORD.

REPORTER: PREDICTIONS BEGAN

SOON AFTER ELECTION 2012, THEY

SAID MAYBE THE END OF THE TEA

PARTY.

MITT ROMNEY'S LOSS COMBINED WITH

A FEW TEA PARTY STUMBLES LED TO

A PERCEPTION THAT THE SO-CALLED

MOVEMENT WAS A BUNCH OF

ULTRACONSERVATIVES THAT COST

SEATS.

WITHIN THE ESTABLISHMENT, THEY

ARE SEEN AS A NUISANCE.

NOW GOP GURU KARL ROVE COULD BE

LOOKING TO PUT A NAIL IN THE

COFFIN, TOO.

HIS NEW POLITICAL ACTION

COMMITTEE, CONSERVATIVE VICTORY

PROJECT WILL BE BACKING

PRIMARIES IN 2014.

TEA PARTY READS ELECTABLE AS

CODE FOR SQUISHY MODERATE

REPUBLICANS.

THAT HAS THEM SEEING RED.

HERE IS A PROJECT FUNDED BY

SEPARATISTS.

REPORTER: TEA PARTY SAYS MUCH

LIKE MARK TWAIN, REPORTS HAVE

BEEN GREATLY EXAGGERATED SHOWING

TEA PARTY DROPPING TO 8% TODAY,

THERE HAVE BEEN KEY WINS.

TED CRUISE AND DEB FISHER JOIN A

GROWING CONSTITUTIONAL

CONSERVATIVE GROUP MADE UP OF

MARCO RUBIO.

ULTIMATELY TEA PARTY LEADERS SAY

THE KEY TO A SUSTAINABLE

NATIONAL MOVEMENT IS ELECTING

HOUSE AND SENATE CANDIDATES

READY FOR PRIME TIME.

WE REQUIRE OUR CANDIDATES TO

HAVE A PATH TO VICTORY IN THEIR

CAMPAIGN.

JULIE TURNER SAYS GROOM

CANDIDATES ON THE LOCAL LEVEL

AND GROWING A BENCH OF ALL

STARS.

IT BECAME CLEAR TO BUILD A

FARM TEAM.

BRING PEOPLE INTO OUR WEEKLY

MEETINGS.

HERE IN SAN ANTONIO, THE

ALAMO REPRESENTS THE ULTIMATE

SACRIFICE IN FREEDOM.

THAT IS HOW THE TEA PARTY SEES

THEMSELVES AS FREEDOM WARRIORS.

HERE IN TEXAS, IT IS ANYTHING

BUT DEAD.

TEA PARTY KEPT A SERIOUS

PRESENCE IN THE STATE CAPITOL

CONVINCING THEM TO REIGN IN ON

SPENDING.

TEA PARTY MEMBERS MEET EACH

WEEK.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO

SEE US GIVE UP.

THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

FOR PEOPLE THAT THINK THE TEA

PARTY IS DEAD, WHAT IS YOUR

MESSAGE?

NO.

THE TEA PARTY IS NOT DEAD.

THEY ARE RESTING.

MUCH LIKE THEIR GOP COUNTER

PARTS, IMAGE IS A PROBLEM.

SINCE THE MEDIA HAS TURNED THE

TEA PARTY INTO A FOUR-LETTER

WORD.

CONSERVE TIFF BLOGGERS SAY

REBRAND, RETOOL, RECRUIT AND

REENGAGE.

THIS IS GENERATIONAL.

IT STARTED WITH THE FOUNDING OF

THE COUNTRY.

IT WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN.

OUR NAME WILL CHANGE, FACES WILL

CHANGE, WE WILL NOT.

IN BEAUMONT, TEXAS.

COMING UP NEXT, MORE AND MORE

MUSLIMS COMING TO CHRIST THROUGH

DREAMS AND VISIONS.

SEEING VISIONS OF JESUS, IT

IS HAPPENING TODAY AND NOT JUST

AMONG CHRISTIANS.

ACROSS THE MUSLIM WORLD, MEN

AND WOMEN ARE COMING TO CHRIST

BECAUSE JESUS APPEARED TO THEM,

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS TONIGHT'S

FOCUS REPORT

REPORTER: TV PROGRAM FOR

MUSLIMS CALLED "REFLECTIONS."

I HAD ONE LADY SAY I HAVE HAD

A NIGHTMARE.

TURNED ON THE TELEVISION AND

THERE YOU WERE.

SHE SAID THE WORDS COMING OUT OF

YOUR MOUTH, I FELL ASLEEP.

I ENDED UP HAVING A VISION OF

THE LORD.

I SAW THE LORD, JESUS, HE WAS IN

A BRIGHT WHITE ROBE AND POINTED

TO A MAN I KNEW IN THE DREAM,

ABRAHAM AND SACRIFICING ICE

ISAAC.

MUSLIM MEN AND WOMEN ARE

TURNING TO FAITH IN JESUS

CHRIST.

FOR MANY THEIR CONVERSIONS ARE

NOT THE RESULT OF MISSIONARIES

OR PREACHERS.

THESE MUSLIMS ARE COMING TO

CHRIST BECAUSE THEY HAD DREAMS

AND VISIONS.

ALI ALSO MET JESUS IN A DREAM

WHILE ON THE MECCA.

I WAS GOING THERE IN ORDER TO

FULFILL THE REQUIREMENTS IN

ISLAM.

HIS EXPERIENCES IS DRAMA

TIEZED IN THIS DVD CALLED "MORE

THAN IN DREAMS."

JESUS TOUCHED ME ABOVE MY HEART,

HE SAID YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED,

FOLLOW ME.

YOU BELONG TO ME.

I DECIDED, OKAY.

I AM NOT GOING TO FINISH THE

PILGRAMAGE.

WHATEVER IT TAKES, I AM GOING TO

FOLLOW THAT VOICE.

THE DVD TALKS OF OTHERS THAT

HAVE COME TO FAITH IN CHRIST IN

A DREAM OR VISION.

PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER

THOUGHT ABOUT JESUS.

THEY ARE CONTENT MUSLIMS.

TOM DOYLE SERVES IN E 3

MINISTRIES.

DOYLE WROTE THE RECENTLY

RELEASED BOOK "DREAMS AND

VISIONS, IS JESUS AWAKENING THE

MUSLIM WORLD?"

PEOPLE ARE SEEKING, MAYBE THEY

DON'T HAVE A BIBLE.

MAYBE THERE IS NO MISSIONARY IN

THE VILLAGE.

THIS WOMAN COMES FROM AN

ASIAN COUNTRY.

HER IDENTITY IS HIDDEN FOR

SECURITY REASONS.

A PERSON WILL SAY THEY SAW

HIM IN A DREAM.

I DECIDED TO ASK HIM.

I DID.

THEN THE NEXT DAY, I GUESS I SAW

IN MY DREAM, I SAW JESUS.

THE DREAM OR VISION IS

USUALLY THE START, NOT THE END

OF A MUSLIM CONVERSION.

NOBODY GOES TO SLEEP, CHRIS,

A MUSLIM AND WAKES UP A

CHRISTIAN.

IT KNOCKS DOWN THE FALSE

BARRIER, COUPLE ARE THAT WE

WORSHIP THREE GODS AND THE BIBLE

IS CORRUPTED.

COMPARED TO THE POLITICAL

STORMS SWEEPING THE MIDDLE EAST,

THIS COULD BE SEEN AS A

SPIRITUAL EARTHQUAKE.

MAN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS MOVING

EVEN MORE POWERFULLY.

HEARTS ARE OPENED, PEOPLE

DESPERATE, GOVERNMENTS CHANGING.

EVERYBODY'S FOUNDATION HAS

MASSIVE CRACKS.

JESUS IS THE ANSWER TO FILL THE

NEED.

MANY MISSIONARIES SAY THESE

DREAMS COMBINED WITH TELEVISION

ARE REACHING MUSLIMS.

MORE MUSLIMS ARE COMING TO JESUS

CHRIST THAN IN ANY OTHER TIME IN

THE 1400-YEAR HISTORY IN ISLAM.

BELIEVERS IN THE WEST CAN JOIN

THE SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION.

THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL.

WORKERS ARE FEW.

WE ARE COMMITTED, ALL OF US, WE

HAVE TO REACH THOSE WITH THE

GOSPEL OF CHRIST.

NOT EVERYBODY IS GOING TO GO

TO THE MIDDLE EAST.

NO LEADER CAN BLOCK INTERCESSION

AROUND THE WORLD.

WE NEED TO PRAY GOD WOULD

CONTINUE TO PUSH THE GOSPEL OUT

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.
