intense june son and tight security and many holding pictures of the relatives killed in last year's revolution. >> nothing happened at all. this is a moment of the truth. can you see everyone raising their hands in prayer . we are going to hear the verdict . an arab dictator put on trial in his own country. the only feel they have justice in the death penalty . >> you think the crowd was in a rock party it is crazy. >> and they are out here chanting god is great. he was thrownn out by the revolution.
>> what do you think? >> right now, the crowd in tahir is growing by the minute . hundreds are coming in from all sides to tahir square. not only protesting the verdict against mubarack but protesting that a number of the people in the security apparatus also on trial in this verdict got acquitted. they walked away free . that is not sitting well with the people. many people down there were in tahir square in the revolution. and they endured beatings and killings. this is a critical time for egypt and intense time. they will return and have a choice of who they vote for, for president.
that is certainly envoking a lot of emotion. that is an amazing visit. thank you for that update . the details of the. they are sending ships to the asian pacific a. it is not meant to pose a threat to china. but others worry that the u.s. doesn't have the money to pay for it. this was secretary paneda's first speech. this is a to china, and i reject that view entirely. >> it was not designed to confront chin a. but they will
send their asset to the court. that is six aircraft carriers in this region and a majority of the cruisers and destroyers and combat ships and submarines. we'll retire older navy ships. but we will replace them with more than 40 far more capable and technologically advanced ships. and asked whether the un can have a increased military use in asia. and senator john herman cain attended the. >> and we have the smallest navy since beginning world war ii. it is a mismatch between the realities. >> and the funding for that commitment. >> senator joe leiberman met with them to discuss syria and
telling fox news that he thinks that the administration is closer to getting involved. >> and it is his department has a series of plans which they implement. and asked to be given various levels of military sent. and to stop. >> and senator mccape critized the obama administration. >> i can't think of the time i have served in many ways that i have been more embarrassed about my country and their failure to carry out. >> and this comes as a un convoy peaks out. and saying that syria is slipping in an all out war.
peter doocy has the latest. and that is the new. the part on the left was on may 18th. and earlier picture shows something that the syrian government said was town square. and it appears that there were rows and rows and it probably was used for the mass graves. and there is heavy alstillery. and followed by pictures of the land cape and full of new. and they are sharing these picts for a reason. we want to sunday that message to the syrian people first and foremost. and it is important that the
international community seek the damages. >> and the u.s. ambassador said syria is so complicated and entangled. listen to this. russia conditions to supply them with arms and we know that the iranian regime interest are deeply embedded. and it is supporting the syrian government with lethal and known lethal means they are coaching the syrian military. and iran and russia is involved here. >> staggering and unbelievable. thank you very much. noww back in this country. there is a scandal with gsa. new documents are revealing that the group made a great deal of money. and they are joining us now with more on this story.
and how much money was spent in all. >> 750 in travel expenses. 95 of them spent that money over the course of nine months . the congressional committee was oversight of the federal work force is demanding information . according to a letter obtained by fox news. the american people have a right to know that the federal burrcrats that enjoy the benefits of working at home are eligible and responsible stewards of the taxpayer dollars that support the program. they had promised the top and bottom review . in response to the latest gsa revelation there was a review of the operation and that included the travel policy and staff deployment. they had excessive spending
and government efficienciy. and why does it sound familiar? he was heading up a gsa conference. and that cost taxpayers 823,000. and last fall when they were alered to the expenses. and he wrote to a colleague in an e-mail and obtained by the washington post. omg. this is a fine mess. and in the other e-mail. this will take your breath away and don't share further. the new gsa spending program shows a lack of oversite.
president obama is calling on congress to pass a number of billings. >> it rose to 8.2 percent . that led to a downed market. and traveled back from chicago. >> and that is for the presidential nominee . polls are showing. it was the biggest weak spot. the ceo of the restaurant and joining us now . thank you for being here with us. >> i know they are disappointing to a lot of folks. and the ceo of a major company what does it send to the long term and people who are hoping that the job outlook improves.
>> if we don't have a change in policy we'll not see the job markets improve. there is fear about taxes going up and the fear of cost of obama care . fear about the norb get businesses unions. and there is a lot of fear in the business community. they will show they can make a profit. and now america is sitting at two trillion and they would like to invest. you have to have one where people think they will get a return on their invest with the president and policies we don't have that feeling. that is giving up . that number is up since sevenmillion people took over.
and the bureau of labor statistics came out with the 8.2. and the number of unemployed people reported to one million people. and that is a sign of a very weak economy. we need somebody who can come in with business experience and experience in the real economy and knows how to change and understand the financial markets. there is experience in private equity and experience in the olympics. you have a candidate that has a experience to get out of this mess. it is three and half year to show the policies would do. and they really have not turned them around. >> while he was governor of massachusetts he was 40 out of 50 . how do you answer that concern
right now? >> it is a one liner that has a impact. we have a short discussion and probably not enough time to cover it all today. governor romney was in the state and in 2001 and 3 the tech sector dropped. >> massachusetts was hit by the reception. and other states were not as hard hit. >> he took the unemployment rate 5.6 percent and to 7.7 percent . he created a neat 50,000 in massachusetts while governor and the president has created a negative and lostt 500,000 during that period of time. governor romney had a three billion deficit and balanced it and did without increases. and left a rainy day fund.
president obama would love to have governor romney's record in massachusetts. and if you wanted a job, you could find one. today that is not the case and i think that president obama knows it. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you, uma, it is a pleasure. >> and they are very concerned about what they say in tsa security. >> tsa is reluctant to come forward about it. >> according to the share, and issue in airport in florida may enclude employees and high ranking officials there. we don't have details yet. and reporting that five tsa workers were put on leave for not following property procedure. i am calling to tsa to make a latest details public. and disappointed that they try to keep the media in the dark. that is embarrassing to that
agency. >> and so the juror in the john edwards trial are sharing their side of the story. six jurors and alinates appeared to hannity. they may have disagreed on the evidence in the case. but they all took their jobs seriously. one of the alternates addressing the charge that she allegedly flirted with edwards in the trial. >> first of all. i understand that the alternator that was flirting. >> thank you for saying allegedly. >> what was that all about. >> i don't know. i think they miscontrued my smiling . after i talked to my husband. this is funny. honey. >> did he think it was funny. >> he did, he knew it was ridiculous. >> edwards is a free man. and the jurors are reaching the verdict. and not guilty of accepting
illegal contributions. and the jury was hung on the other five remaining charges and forcing the judge to declare a mistrial. >> and the unemployment benefit plan wa cut off in some states. and a closer look at why they are losing the benefits and scott walker's last minute push to keep the job. and recall and what it could mean for the presidential contest. her magistry celebrating historic diamond jubilee in grand style. that is coming your way. i'm a marathon runner, in absolute perfect physical condition and i had a heart attack right out of the clear blue... i'm on an aspirin regimen... and i take bayer chewables.

life of a modern monarch. thank you for joining us. >> great to be here. >> it is a beautiful day in london. >> my understanding bucking ham palace gave you acess to the queen yourself. is there a difference between the official and private woman? >> yes, there is, that was a big surprise. i discovered a lot about what she does. far more than what people give her credit for. she has a wide range of duties. the way she is with close friend and family members. many of whom spoke to me that she has a great -- and others who work in san dringham. her laughter can be heard throughout the house. she has a joyous laugh. she loves to sing and dance.
and my book has many glimpses of that private side. she can be compassionate and earthy. imagine the queen walking in her regal pace about and hand bag on the arm . in the trowsers and stalking stag in balmoral with her nose on the ground. >> quite a sight. the famous bag and what does she have in it. and historic celebrations this weekend. do you think the queen is excited about the jubilee and draw comparison with herself and queen victoria who was the only other monarch to serve. >> she is excited. she went on tours in the united kingdom and the way people have turned out and huge crowd and big cheers and you can see the look on her face. she is thoroughly enjoying it.
when she celebrated her golden jubly. it started with the death of her sister and then her mother, but now, people are showing their appreciation for the service that she has given for 60 years. she is 86 years old and a good 20 years beyond retirement and does 400 engagements a year and she has in the course of her time on the throne, bestowed over 400,000 honors and recognizing people and civilians and military, people in the military for their service. she's done that over 600 times and she sets an example for people. and i think she is once again seeing the ground swell of support. this afternoon, she went to the epison derby to do one of the things she loves more than anything else which is horse race when they were down

ending altogether. back in 2009 feds added emergency extension to state unemployment benefits and that gave 99 weeks of unemployment. 26 from the state and those expired. congress cut back on the number of weeks that you are eligible for. there are so many people out of work. and the majority of the people are trying hard to find jobs . they are putting in the time it takes to do that. and sometimes you just need more time. emergency benefits give you something. dependog where you live it might be much less. if it fell since 2009, so did the number of extended weeks. the rate of 10.9 percent . so the feds reduced
california's extended benefits about 20 weeks . similar things happening and translated to 400,000 people who are cut off. it is the first major casulty. and the impact on high unemployment and that is felt now and they are on the front lines . and by the end of this year. national unemployment estimates that half of americans will not be eligible for benefits adding insult to injury. >> and a lot drama over the wisconsin election. it is much more. and bill clinton and chris christie are weighing in. we'll get a closer look at the
implications, coming up next. graduation, huh ? crazy, right ? well, with this droid razr by motorola on verizon 4g lte, you guys can stay in touch.

encourage republican governors and legislatures to pass legislation and if they win it is a deterrent. >> the latest polls out there. and do you think that whatever the outcome at this point it will be held up as an omen for the presidential race in november. >> it is a narrow walk or win. there will not be too much to read into it. if walker lives by what the polls are saying 7 or 8 or 9 points that. is not a great sign for the president. a lot are showing the president ahead. he doesn't want a close race. he wants wisconsin to be a blow out for him. >> president obama in the neighboring states around wisconsin and did not venteur in to the site despite bill clinton campaigning on the side of big labor. what mention do you have about
this. >> democrats believe he is alive and likely to wind and he doesn't want to put political capitol on the line just a few months before the general election. >> it is better not to be seen and take defeat head on that way rather than show us. and that's right. he got flack in 2009 and 2010 for wading in gubernatorial and senate races. >> he doesn't want to be made to look weak. >> we'll see the implications for the outcome. we'll watch it close low as well. >> thank you. and mitt romney's presidential campaign is a personal experience for the family. what one of his five sops it tells bill hemmer about life on the campaign trail. >> you are always out tramping.
