tv   The FOX Report With Shepard Smith  FOX News  September 12, 2013 7:00pm-8:00pm EDT

7:00 pm
>> what do you think? >> that's so weird. >> she can taste it. that's it for this special report. fair, balanced and unafraid. this is "the fox report." tonight syria crisis, the united states and russia in a tense set of talks on chemical deals. can the secretary of state, john kerry, seal the deal? plus a 13-year-old boy accused of making threats that shutdown six schools. cops say he threatened to go on a shooting spree and blow up his school. the district took action. >> we got an automated call from the school that said schools were closed. >> now an eighth grader is under arrest. >> pretty serious. glad the police acted as fast as they did. >> i feel bad for the kid and the parents. >> was this a hoax that went
7:01 pm
too far or something more serious? she was just days into her marriage when investigators say this new bride shoved her husband right off a cliff. friends say they had seen the warning signs. >> tony was putting everything into his relationship, 110% all the time. we weren't sure if she felt the same way. >> tonight the newlywed charged with murder. plus flash floods. reports of a 20-foot wall of water and rescue crews trying to save lives. tonight people are dead and roads are already undriveable, and now more rain is on the way. but first on fox this thursday night, the syrian president says he will only give up his chemical weapons or give them up only if the united states drops the threat of a military strike. he drew his own red line.
7:02 pm
syria reports it did take the first step today. they joined a convention banning chemical weapons. that includes a promise. a promise to destroy the weapons. but basharal assad won't turnover information for the next 30 days. john kerry is rejecting the time line and refusing to rule out any possible military strike. he is in geneva, switzerland meeting with the foreign minister to work out the details of the chemical weapons deal. today secretary kerry said, "this is not a game." >> it has to be real. it has to be comprehensive. it has to be varifiable. it has to be credible. it has to be timely and implemented in a timely fashion. finally there ought to be consequences if it doesn't take place. >> now the russian president vladimir putin is lashing out in president obama in a column in new york times.
7:03 pm
he writes, i carefully studied his, president obama's address to the nation and i would rather disagree with a case he made on american exceptionalism stating that the united states policy is what makes america different. putin went on, millions around the world increasingly see america not as a model of democracy, but relying solely on brute force, coblentzing coal legislations together under the slogan you are either with us or against us. the russian president vladimir putin talking to the united states about brute force and democracy. ed is here from the white house. >> shep, the white house is not thrilled that president obama was being compared to his predecessor, george w. bush, in some of that. he convened a cabinet meeting and john kerry was not at that cabinet meeting since he is in geneva. the shouting questions are about any reaction to the
7:04 pm
blistering op ed. instead they focused on the positive developments he thinks may come from kerry's trip. take a listen. >> i am hopeful that the discusses that secretary kerry has with the foreign minister as well as some of the other to bring a concrete result. >> there are fresh doubts today in port because whether the u.s. can trust putin will deliver a deal with the syrians or whether he is stringing the u.s. along right now. republicans on capitol hill suggest the president looks weak right now and white house spokesman jay carney says it is vladimir putin who has explaining to do. take a listen. >> to be lectured to by putin as we were this morning, i can hear reagan rolling over in his grave. >> unlike russia, the united states stands up for
7:05 pm
democratic values and human rights. >> jay carney went on to say the owe nuss is on putin now. he put the proposal on the table and he is close to syrian president assad and carney says russia's press steaming on the world stage is on the line right now, suggesting perhaps the u.s. wants russia to take ownership over the crisis. remember last week the president said it wasn't my red line. the president says putin bears some responsibility. >> secretary kerry admitted it will be an immense challenge to make sure assad hands overall of the chemical weapons. one expert called the mission next to impossible. members of congress have serious concerns too, and we will go live to dc coming up inside fox report. first a 13-year-old boy is under arrest after police say he threatened to shoot up his school and set off a bomb. police called the threats credible except they also say
7:06 pm
he didn't have anyway to carry them out. in other words he had no guns and no explosives. still before investigators tracked down this eighth grader staffers decided to can sell all classes at six local schools. some parents say the whole thing made them nervous. >> i told my son when he got up there wouldn't be school today. i thought he would be excited. when he heard why he wasn't excited at all. he was somewhat scared. >> this all happened in battleground, washington about two and a half hours south of seattle. dan springer is in seattle with more. dan? >> shep, police still don't have a motive for these threats, but they are convinced it was not meant as a joke. they took them seriously in part because they were very specific. the student named the teacher he said he was going to shoot, and then he said he was going to set off a bomb at his middle school and then gave an exact time this would happen, on wednesday the anniversary of 9/11. the 13-year-old allegedly posted it on a website
7:07 pm
operated by the middle school and it was meant to be a place where students could launch their concern after several recent suicides in the district. they decided to keep nearly 4,000 students home yesterday. with the fbi's help the boy was arrested in the afternoon. >> it is pretty serious. glad the police acted as fast as they did to apprehend the person involved. >> the eighth grader faces a single charge of felony harassment and will be tried as a juvenile. he was also expelled last night. in february an 18-year-old in that same district was also arrested for making a bomb threat. he was scheduled to be sentenced for that crime this week. shep? >> prosecutors could file formal charges on monday. and by the way, all six schools that closed because of this reopened their doors today. when it comes to floods in the west, the danger is not over. that's the warner from emergency workers tonight in parts of colorado where powerful floods have been washing away homes and cars
7:08 pm
and people. we go live to colorado to see how they are dealing with all of this and why things could get much worse before they get better. and breaking right now, a huge fire is racing down the boardwalk in jersey. building after building destroyed. some of the same ones just fixed after superstorm sandy. these flames should no signs of stoping. plus nasa con officials that one of its spacecraft have done something no spacecraft has ever accomplished. that's ahead from "the journal" it is fox news on this thursday fox report. and there is fox report news coming as well.

7:17 pm
please do not come here. it is all clear to return to this area. i want to thank both mayors who have been on top of the situation. the police chief boyd from seaside heights who was enormous help. >> we are looking at live pictures, some are live and some on tape. pictures from the governor of our affiliate, but this has been burning for hours. it is crazy windy down the shore today. keep in mind the workers rebuilt a different part of the boardwalk after sandy. as the governor mentioned it has now burned some 80% of this historic boardwalk. this area has just been hit with one shot after another. you finish out the tourist season and now it appears tonight it is all burning down. we will go back for live updates throughout this newscast. a bride says her new husband wanted to see glacier national

airplanes flew too close to one another 4,000 times last year. that's according to a report from aviation officials. and it is more than double the previous record from 2011. however, the feds say the high number is few to more reporting from air traffic controllers and better radar equipment to track the

7:23 pm
and went missing and then saying, oh yeah, well he left with friends and went hiking in glacier national park and then finally saying, yes, they went hiking together and she pushed him to his death. cody johnson's friends say while he was missing they never believed that he simply up and left his wife. listen. >> there was this weird sense of relief because for the longest time there have been so many questions that we as friends and i know family members had had that had not been answered yet. >> keep in mind there was another hearing tomorrow morning at 9:15. jordan graham could wind upright back in jail. shep. >> even the guy who introduced the couple says he felt something was bad wrong. >> yes, and he got even more suspicious when just a couple of days after cody johnson disappeared, the wife actually canceled the lease on their home. he said that was odd. just days after that jordan
7:24 pm
graham found her husband's body in glacier national park. the park rangers thought that was kind of suspicious, but she says she looked in the park because, quoting here, it was a place he wanted to see before he died. he would come up here with friends to drive fast when his friends were visiting from out of state. the man who introduced the couple said all along this relationship just wasn't right. listen. >> cody was putting everything into the relationship. he put like 110% all the time. we really weren't sure if she felt the same way. you just don't do something like that. cody was saving up everything, every last penny he could for the wedding. >> that same friend says after he read the arrest affidavit he was not surprised at all. shep? >> trace, a friend of the vehicle tim's family says the wife had been telling people she knew she never wanted to be married. she just wanted to have a wedding and she and her late husband had been arguing over exactly that. there is word that syria's

7:32 pm
easier. catherine has more on this. >> the head of the intelligence committee tells fox news that putting the chemical weapons under international control looks like a big problem from start to finish. >> it is tens of thousands of pounds of this stuff. that's why we are so concerned by the shear volume of it. there has been consolidation in moving. there are a few sites. >> that consolidation is referring to syrian president assad and based on the intelligence as the civil war intensities the regime has firm control. and the committee's senior democrat telling a conference in washington that the administration must maintain the pressure. >> i think we need time limitations. if this is a stalling tactic we have to continue on with the threat of force or nothing will happen. >> given the intense fighting, rogers says the best, most
7:33 pm
realistic option is not moving chemical weapons out of syria in a hot zone war, but neutralizing them at storage sites in skyed skyed -- inside syria. >> our technology is much better than it used to be even a few years ago where we can get rid of it quickly. we can make sure we render it useless on site. that would be in my mind the best way to do this. >> that solution would mean putting people on the ground in syria, shepherd. >> meantime in syria, catherine, the civil war is raging and an ancient christian village outside damascus is caught in the middle. it is one of the last places on earth people speak the language jesus is said to have spokenment there have been reports of rebel fighters attacking churches there and threatening to execute christians who don't convert to islam. now the army is trying to take control of that town. ly land -- leland has more.

7:35 pm
sites? >> that town survived another uprising in 2005. women and children who escaped hid in caves outside the down. the village is now a united nations world heritage site. when the taliban governed afghanistan they used the sports stadiums to hold public executions. today one of the stadiums was the scene of a massive party as afghans welcomed home their national soccer team. 24 celebration came after the players won a championship. the country's first in soccer. you can see how folks there reacted. back here at home, we are one week closer to get another government shutdown. the house of representatives canceled its vacation which was to start on the 23rd of this month so they can keep working on a short-term spending bill. this after they pulled the plug on a proposal to keep the government past the 30th of september. that's when the current fiscal year ends. unless the house and spending bill pass it in time, a bunch
7:36 pm
of agencies will have to close their doors. doug has this at the capital. >> the leadership of both houses met to decide what to do as we approach the impending deadline of september 30th when the government yet again runs out of money and when we may potentially face another government shutdown. fan she pelosi described today's meeting as cor jill. >> it was constructive and productive. we came together. we have made progress in understanding where we all are. >> but senate majority leader harry reid left an entirely different impression with a vicious attack against house conservatives. their resistance to a continuing resolution put forward by house speaker john boehner. he pulled the floor vote and it said a lot. mere -- here is what harry reid had to say about that.
7:37 pm
>> as i said, the anarchists are winning. anything that can be done to slow down, hurt or get rid of government in anyway is good. shutting down the government is obviously what the congress wants to do on the house. >> speaker boehner is in the hotseat and will surely blame him and others if there is a government shutdown and caught between house conservatives. he remains his cool self when asked about this. >> i am well aware of the deadlines and so are my colleagues. we are working with our colleagues to work through these issues. i think there is a way to get there. >> that way to get there may have been vee vealed late today -- may be revealed. they call on a government to be fully funded through 2013
7:38 pm
