let's take a look now at the president of the united states the first african-american of course to hold that office, walking across the edmund pettus bridge. barack obama of illinois leading a group of several hundred across that bridge, recreating those footsteps 50 years ago today that of course ended with the protesters, about 600 of them, marching for voting rights, bloodied and battered when they were set upon by the alabama state troopers. that of course leading to two other marches the final one led by dr. martin luther king jr. this action all leading to the birth of the voting rights act back in 1965. it is an emotional, poignant, historic and deeply meaningful saturday afternoon in selma, alabama, as the president along with the first lady and their
two young daughters walk across the bridge honoring and remembering and celebrating the progress that this country has made and honoring and paying tribute to those who went those steps 50 years ago. we just heard from the reverend jesse jackson talking about the meaningful tribute that he had and the people who were crying and walking up to him asking him, imploring him, thanking him for the civil rights movement of this country. just a few hours ago, mourners gathered in prescott, arizona to remember international aid worker kayla mueller. the 26-year-old was the fourth american to die in isis captivity. mueller was captured back in 2013 after leaving a doctors without borders hospital in syria. u.s. officials confirmed her death last month but have not verified claims by isis that she
was killed in a jordanian air strike. will carr has more from or west coast newsroom. will? >> this is quite an emotional ceremony. we heard from a number of kayla mueller's closest friends and family, including her mom, who choked up while she was reading a letter that kayla had sent her while in captivity. we also heard from senator john mccain, who actually teared up during a moment himself. he called kayla an extraordinary young woman and said she was a powerful example to follow. mueller was captured by isis in august of 2013 while she was in syria before she had traveled all over the world protesting genocide, raising awareness for hiv and aids and peacefully standing up for a number of other humanitarian efforts. listen to mueller talk about the syrian conflict in a youtube video she made back in 2011. >> i am in solidarity with the syrian people. i reject the brutality and killing that the syrian authorities are committing
against the syrian people. because silence is participation in this crime, i declare my participation in the syrian movement on youtube. >> many people in today's memorial called her a good samaritan. her brother got up and said if you need a hug, come hug us because we need it, too. the memorial today was based on that letter that she sent to her parents when she was in captivity. part of which states i pray each day that if nothing else, you have felt a certain closeness and surrender to god as well that formed a bond of love and support amongst one another. many people saying she should be an inspiration to everybody who heard about her life's work. ar arthel? >> indeed. thanks so much, will. trying to stop iran from building a possible nuclear bomb. the talks are continuing this weekend but will the strategy work and can they get it done by
the end of the month? that crucial deadline ticking away for those negotiations. >> we are on the same page. if we didn't think that there was further to go as laura said, we would have had an agreement already.

♪music resumes♪ [announcer] purina pro plan's bioavailable formulas deliver optimal nutrient absorption. [owner] come on. [announcer] purina pro plan. nutrition that performs. new developments to tell you about in the iranian nuclear talks. iran's vice president saying the negotiators have been able to work through a series of technical road blocks as he calls it possibly paving way for a final deal. diplomats are hoping to reach an interim agreement on the 24th of this month then finalize that by the end of june. meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry meeting with his french counterpart in paris. he says both countries are on the same page and agree the current deal being discussed does not yet go far enough. so what will make america agree? sir, what sets apart this deal
right now that it can't get done, that is the main stumbling block? >> i think it's the iranians. the president is desperate for a deal. he came out and said no plan b which is the equivalent if you walked in a car dealer and said dude, i don't know what this is going to cost me but i got to buy a car. so in a sense the iranians are really in the driver's seat and they have three options. they can sign a deal, they can continue to string the negotiationout because the administration won't want to walk away and get some sanctions relief or they might overstretch and just -- and their demands are just something even the p-5 plus one couldn't credibly agree to. the likelihood everyone is just going to walk away from the table at this point because the administration has invested so much in this and said there's no alternative are kind of next to stooer zero. >> they are lowering the level of uranium enrichment but they are not taking apart the centrifuges, they aren't putting the stuff in boxes and crates and shipping it to the d.o.e. in
tennessee like gadhafi did. they're not taking everything down and allowing full access like south africa. so what are they doing to make sure they don't build a bomb? >> that's the key point that netanyahu made in his speech. they get essentially to run up to the line of everything you do to do a nuclear weapons program and there are no concrete assurances here that they won't build a bomb in the future. so to say well, we worked out the technical details, nobody really thinks the technical details are relevant because all the prohibitions are reversible. so it's just like holding the sword of damocles over the reej op region's head for ten years. >> do you think what they are allowed to do and allowed to keep, they would have the potential to build a nuclear bomb if they wanted? >> the deal as we currently understand it lets them run up to that line and stop. so then -- >> can they stop? do we have them stop or do they
decide to stop? >> well that's the problem. first of all, they could renege the deal whenever they wanted to or they can cheat. in either case they can essentially have what they have now which is the capacity to go nuclear when they want to. people forget, the iranian negotiating strategy here is virtually identical to the north korean strategy which is stringing along people between a combination of cheating and accommodating, then abrogating and going nuclear at the point they felt was right for them. >> do you think we would know? is it possible we would know if they are going nuclear unlike north korea? >> well america's got a great history of this. we guessed wrong in every single power that went nuclear including our own, guessing when we were going to do it. our track record on this isn't really super awesomely great. >> finally, what about those who say look, any deal is better than no deal at all because if they have no deal, they can do whatever they want. >> they are either idiots or
they are whispering you know, talking to themselves in their head. look, as soon as you sign a deal, any deal, what that means is anybody that's anything to push back in iran, they will get bullied saying you threatened our deal. out of jail free to fund the shia militias fund the houthis, fund the hezbollah, continue one of the most aggressive foreign policies in the middle east and no guarantee they will never get a nuclear weapon. >> we have 17 more days before we see what happens. we thank you for joining us today. >> thanks for having me. tonight, want to remind you, fox news investigates cases where private citizens found themselves in a battle with their own government, including the makers of gibson guitars. >> the agents came in and told us to back away from our desks and i vividly remember that, you know, who are these people? >> they weren't looking for bombs. they weren't looking for
terrorists. they were looking for wood. >> what did you find when you got to the factory? >> there were several dozen armed agents and they were taking a lot of wood and it was kind of a bizarre situation. >> all right. don't miss it. fox news reporting. enemies of the state at 10:00 p.m. eastern tonight, 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night. you got a double chance. twice the chance. have you heard about the penalties for a college basketball powerhouse? we will tell you about the ncaa, they are squeezing the orange. syracuse university. after some stunning allegations. at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like mute buttons equal danger.
brian has the details from our new york city newsroom. what is going on? >> reporter: the ncaa's eight-year investigation found dozens of violations against syracuse's storied basketball program and laid much of the fault on the national championship coach, jim boeheim. according to the report released friday, syracuse basketball violated rules over the course of the decade from 2001 to 2012. the report highlighted academic fraud student athletes had their papers and assignments completed by staff, including the director of men's basketball operations. the school also failed to follow and enforce its own written drug policy. players who tested positive for drugs more than once were allowed to play in games. players received illegal benefits, including more than $8,000 in cash. as a result the school will now be on probation for the next five years. they will lose 12 scholarships and they self-imposed a post season ban this year. the hammer, though falling hard
on coach boeheim, who was suspended for half of his atlantic coast conference games next season and will have to vacate more than 100 wins. the ncaa says boeheim failed to monitor his staff. the punishment also means the second all time winningest division one coach would fall to sixth all time. in a statement boeheim said in part i am disappointed with many of the findings and conclusions as stated in the stated in the infractions report. the committee chose to ignore the effort which is i have undertaken over the past 37 years to promote an atmosphere of compliance within the men's basketball program. the university defended coach boeheim saying there is no evidence he was a wafrtware of the violations and expected to appeal. but a tough hit for any institution. >> and speaking of basketball and march madness, it hasn't started yet but do you have -- hoping for any of your favorite teams to get in?
>> this is university of miami hurricanes. proud alum and i hope they can get through the acc tournament. >> you can see my face? is university of texas -- >> ut? just saying. >> what? >> georgetown? >>. >> and by the way, canes know a little something about the sanctions thing. i'll just hold it there. we all know the ncaa can be tough with that stuff. so i understand it. >> all right. thanks. >> georgetown. hillary clinton and her private e-mail account has caused a lot of controversy. her office defends it but it's raising some questions. >> hillary clinton is once more a talking point. a new stumble, a new dodge, a mad scramble to shore up the party machinery. with every hillary eruption, we should remind ourselves of other transformation from thehot blooded
ideal list to a brillttal woman who long ago cut any morals to principle. who can forget her as secretary of state in 2011 challenging our patriotism in a press conference. her word quote, the bottom line is whose side are you on. are you on gadhafi's side or the aspiration of the libyan people and international coalition that has been created to support them? for the obama administration to answer that question is very easy, close quote. the outcome of course is another of hillary's lost causes. chaos in libya, barely a country anymore. more a tract of desert sand. libya is a wash in weapons with each group calling for more battles rage among an assortment of tribes, ethnic groups and
islamic forces drifting in from syria and iraq. the pro islamic libya dawn has taken tripoli, a former general commanding the forces of the libyan army in the east under operation dignity. both have their own parliaments, the their own governments and benghazi is up for grabs as air raids bombard the city. it's difficult to gauge the numbers and types of islamists in libya as propaganda takes the place of on scene reporting. oil production is down to a trickle. 11 oilfields are not operating because of the attacks. we do know that tens of thousands of refugees head for europe italian coast guard pulling thousands from the sea. italy's southern most island lies just 188 miles off the
libyan coast. in a week it will be spraying, fifth since the so-called arab spraying that meant reform in the middle east. unlikely mrs. clinton will answer for her eagerness to destroy the gadhafi regime or what led to it the murder of the u.s. ambassador and three other americans who were carrying out the politics that she supported. >> and that's the news for now as we take a last look at selma, alabama on this historic and emotional afternoon. >> we will both see you right here in one hour. the world is filled with air. but for people with copd sometimes breathing air can be difficult. if you have copd, ask your doctor about once-daily anoro ellipta. it helps people with copd breathe better for a full 24hours. anoro ellipta is the first fda-approved product containing two long-acting bronchodilators in one inhaler.

as a professional -- >> smiles. we think it's a mistake for the prime we think it's a mistake for the prime minister of any country to come to speak before congress a few weeks before they're about to have an election. it makes it look like we are taking sides. >> the remarkable alliance between israel and the united states is always been above politics. it must also remain about politics. >> i think that it's been a distraction. >> israel is grateful for the support of america's people and of america's presidents from harry truman to barack obama. >> i did not have a chance to watch prime minister netanyahu's speech. i did have a chance to take a look at the transcript. and as far as i can tell there was nothing new. >>
