security compound where the u.n. and other american organizations sore and people a lot of international workers in kabul. 7 people were killed including 6 afghan civilians and one guard who was working to protect the compound. today's attack was in response to the long-term security agreement that the united states signed last night with afghanistan. president obama arrived under the cover of darkness met with president hamid karzai signed a long-term agreement which is a commitment to a long-term commitment. this agreement that was signed last night doesn't layout any specific details but it says the united states will financially and militarily support afghanistan for the next ten or so years after the combat ends in 2014. there will be money supporting the afghan government. there will be u.s. troops here but they will not be in a combat
role post 2014. it's an important point the u.s. government is trying to make here. by the end of 2014 afghans will have all security responsibility in afghanistan and the united states will just play an advisory role. they will offer military and financial support but u.s. combat operations will end by the year 2014. this is to build up confidence in afghanistan to convince afghans and the afghan government is not cutting and running and also to put pressure on the taliban for those who think the taliban can out wait the u.s. government. it is to say the u.s. government will be here and will support the afghan government. >> thank you so much from afghanistan. our coverage continues with peter duoocy. good morning, peter.
>> to make sneaking into afghanistan the president and press corps left here in dc on tuesday after dark and left afghanistan just after the president's remarks before the sun came up. >> my fellow americans we traveled through a decade under the dark cloud of war. yet here in the predawn darkness in afghanistan we can see light on a nof a new day on the horiz. >> he took photos and shook as many hand as he could and also awarded 10 purple hearts before stepping in front of heavy equipment at 4:00 a.m. local time to tell afghans and americans since the year of osama bin laden's death things are gotten better. >> we devastated al qaeda leadership taking out 20 of the top 30 leaders. and one year ago from a base here in afghanistan our troops launched the operation that killed osama bin laden. the goal that i set to defeat al
qaeda and deny the chance to rebuild is now within our reach. in a statement mr. obama's presumed republican opponent mitt romney says quote i am pleased president obama return to do afghanistan. many brave americans sacrificed anything so we can learn this fight for more secure future. let us honor the memory of the fallen by keeping them in our thoughts and staying true to their commitment. but republican senator jim imhoff of oklahoma came out and said in his opinion the president's trip was campaign related. heather back to you. peter doocy live for us bright and early. karl rove responding to us last night on "hannity"" taking issue with de pointes the president made. >> i looked at the president's speech. there are five points. couple are in conflict. he said the afghans are going to be in charge of fighting by next year.
i hope so. the second problem is we are going to withdraw u.s. troops so they won't be in combat roles. we will have a responsible end. we need to keep flexible if they are not able to take on everything we have combat presence. i talked to people who are involved they are deeply concerned we are withdrawing too many people too quickly. the security gains in the southwest are going to be jeopardized and we are not going to be able to do the same kind of efforts in the east against the tal began and al qaeda. they announced taliban are brutal allies of the al qaeda. frankly the president takes a long-term cooperative agreement with iraqis the others forces agreement shouldn't give us great confidence he will do a good job there. negotiating with the taliban? we are negotiating with people who brought osama bin laden in? the president said we are out of
here. >> i don't know how you would negotiate with the taliban. later on the show we will hear reaction from brit hume about the president's address. >> go with the 5 at 5. china is demandling united states apologize for letting blind activist chang enter the embassy. this is the first time we have heard from them since he escaped house rays. he just left the embassy to get medical care and to be reunited with his family. this hours after hillary clinton rived in beijing for two-days of talks. >> newt gingrich will officially throw in the towel in his bed for president. he urged supporters not to give up their thoughts. >> all of us have an obligation to do everything we can to defeat barack obama. another development the
romney campaign offering to connect gingrich with their network of donors to pay down his campaign debt. plot to blow up a bridge in ohio had at least two other targets in mind. he wanted to attack the nato summit in chicago and also the summer's republican convention in florida. they thought they were explosives at the base of the combr bridge in cleave lapped but they were raised because they were working with an fbi informant. >> why british police are reaping the madeliein mccann place. because the parents will speak out ahead of the 5th anniversary of her does appearance. they showed a picture of what she would look like at 9. authorities believe she is alive. she disappeared while on vacation in portugal. military around the country are rallying around their own and they are threatening to boycott
spirit airlines. spirit is refusing to refund the ticket of a terminally ill vietnam war veteran. he bought the ticket to visit his daughter. two weeks later found out he was too sick to fly. spirit says it makes no exceptions. we are going to hear live on fox and friends at 8:20. spirit is doing a big promotion in denver to get people to fly that airline giving away thousands and thousands of free miles. why not refund his money. >> their reaction is going to change after today. >> maybe. 8 minutes after the hour. now it's time for the weather update. maria molina standing by with that. >> today is going to be a little unsettled across the northeast. we will see showers and they will be popping up across portions of the great lakes. we have daytime heating warming things up and unfortunately some of the showers will be thunderstorms and could produce
severe weather and we have a large area that we will be watching this afternoon for the possible of severe weather. even a moderate risk that will be issued for portions of the upper midwest. otherwise above average temperatures for post people east of the rockies. that is going to help fire up the showers and thunderstorms and also the severe weather later on this afternoon. early this morning it is already on the warm side. chicago 61 degrees as you head out the door. 70s in texas. in new york city with a current temperature at 51 degrees. here's a quick look at the showers across parts the pennsylvania west virginia and back into portions of the great lakes across weisconsin. picking up significant rainfall at this hour. it will be a slow go through your morning commute. you can see pittsburgh dealing with the rainfall as well. those showers will continue to linger. here's a look at the severe weather affected and the moderate risk area. you can see longer track tornadoes with weather out
breaks large hail damaging winds and tornadoes including the city of omaha. we will keep a close eye on this today. now stories you can bank on this morning. we begin with what is expected to be a disappointing job data status report. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> so this could be a foreshadowing of what is to come. >> automatic data processing puts out a private jobs report. it is expected to be pretty bad for the month of april. we are expect ago decline of 180,000. that's the level we are expecting to see. typically it highlights and foreshadows what we are going to see on friday when we get the big monthly jobs report or the month of april. that's expected to be a little weaker, too. this casts into question whether the u.s. economy is slowing down. yesterday dow at a four-year high. >> good news.
speaking of stalling, because you used that word, this story surprised me, more and more people driving a stick shift. >> i can't drive one. i tried in a parking lot. i know you can't drive one. >> no way. >> but more of us are saying forget about the worst gas mileage. you save about a thousand dollars on average when you use a manual transmission. the numbers are at the highest level since 2006 for cars bought with stick shift. >> i wonder why? >> you feel like you are driving -- there are not that many option of cars with manual transmission. ford focus huge demand foreman you'll transmission there. the main thing they are experiencing a stick shift loving it coming back wanting it. >> from shifting gears, from driving to flying. >> the absolute worst airport is liguardia followed by los angeles, followed by philadelphia and the best minneapolis, st. paul. >> i have never had a problem

as soon as you start being a moderate you are no longer the taliban. >> can we negotiate with them? >> absolutely not. the right would be to get any one having ill will toward the tal began to turn on them. you are not going to reach ago settlement with a group who's goal is violent jihad. >> some are concerned we are pulling out our troops too quickly, what's your take on that? >> tae a risk. i was talking to one of the top extremists in the u.k. your leaders in al qaeda are getting decimated. he named three things that give him hope the fact that we are negotiating with the taliban and the fact that they are pulling out. speaking of a time line. we are going to have some troops in the country until the year 2024. that's 23 years after the war started. the white house is clear on being a combat role.
if we aren't training it are we going to be able to train them in 23 years? >> i think so. because with the help of insurgents three weeks ago the taliban launched attacks across afghanistan. that caught a lot of us by surprise. the good news is the afghans handled that almost entirely by themselves. that was a sophisticated waive of attacks. let's talk about the nato summit. the summit we always ask people for money. our partners say sure we will uz give it to you but more often than not we will pull it back. >> that of the allies is going to be much worse. the u.s. is getting nervous and that makes them many times more nervous. >> we should be skeptical about pledges of money. >> i would not rely on that. thank you so much for

most ch whom were children. the taliban claimed responsibility for that attack. just hours earlier, speaking to the nation last night. the president outlined the agreement he just signed with hamid karzai. the 88,000 u.s. combat troops in afghanistan will leave by 2014 but the u.s. will continue to provide assist stance until 2014. although the details are a little vague. >> within this framework, we will work with the afghans to determine what support they need to accomplish to narrow security missions beyond 2014. counter-terrorism and continued training. but we will not build permanent bases in this country nor will we be patrolling in cities and mountains. that will be the job of the afghan people. the president's trip to afghanistan was secret. air force one arrived and left before the sun even came up. a schedule that reflected both security needs and also the
timing of a large u.s. television audience last night on a day when the administration marked one year since the death of osama bin laden. one year ago from here in afghanistan the troops launched the operation that killed osama bin laden. the goal that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is now within our reach. >> the president says part of his strategy is to reach out to the tal began iban as we saw in series of threats. we have a long way to go. thank you so much. there is as expected a lot of reaction to the president's speech. >> that is where he discussed the president's strategy and ma he thi what he thinks he is try to acome lish. >> my sense is the president is looking ahead to his reelection campaign which is i suppose it's
fair to say is well underway. he would ask the question, do i have the political capital from support within may own party and other wise to mount the kind of effort that would make sure that the taliban don't return to power. i think that piece of the mission is over. he's not going to do that. it that's not where he is going. the nation is war weary. we are not prepared to stay there as long as it would take to eradicate the taliban. it's not that he won the war. it's whthat ended the war. and now for your 5 at 5:30. pike el bloomberg and mitt romney meeting for the first time face to face. they tried to keep it secret. they met for breakfast yesterday. comes one week after john mccain paid bloomberg a visit at city

>> welcome back. if you depend on your employer for healthcare change it could all change. under obama care businesses have a huge cost saving reason to cut employee healthcare. diane mass is heed macedo has t. >> under president obama's healthcare reformula companies would say billio save billions dumping healthcare. the report found if the companies ditched their coverage and instead paid the 2,000 dollar per employee penalty they would actually make money on the deal. we are not talking pennies here. according to the report in 2014 alone the companies surveyed would save on average $400 million each or total of 28.6 billion and by 2023 they will have saved a total of more than $422 billion. republican committee chairman dave camp said the findings of
the report along with the existing research this is a quote, show that the democrats healthcare law threatens the stability and sustain ability of the employer based health insurance system. the existing research includes the regional congressional budget office that under the president's plan 3-5 million people a year will get healthcare through their jobs in 2019 to 2022. basically it's not looking so good for the president's promise if you like your plan you will get to keep your plan. >> thank you very much. always good information. let's go to the special series it is called running with romney. taking a look at republicans who may be considered as mitt romney's running mate. we are focusing on ohio junior senator rob portman. >> experience is something portman has as well. he has been around the block in washington over in the white house council's office and office of legislative affairs to congressman from cincinnati to u.s. trade representative and

part of some good fiscal discipline in the bush administration. i came in in 2006 and 2007 and the budget that i proposed was a balanced budget. can you believe that? a five year balanced budget. it was hard to put it together. as i said, i put together budgets, i know it's hard. that's what we ought to be doing in congress is putting together a budget and one that over time balances. so the year that i was there 2007 the deficit was about one 8th of the deficit today. $161 billion. i would love to have those times again. unemployment was about 4 and a half percent. i did leave to go home prior to the financial crisis, and that is when, frankly, revenues went down and spending went up. >> portman hz three kids. he met his wife jane on a blind date. >> it didn't go that great. she thought i talked too much. she said i would be a great senator because i would be able
