he was a very private person. kept to himself. liked to come out at night. wear all black. go jogging. when all the surface disappears, it's going to hurt the fishing. when there's no fishing, obviously, people aren't going to pay to go fishing. this will keep us from having to search these houses again. we'll mark them. we'll know they're clear and we won't have to come back and waste resources. see there that they've just pulled the female and they've got her up on the shore. >> i don't think sex addiction is an issue.
12:01 pm
i think it's a moral issue. welcome to news and views. we're talking to homeland security officials today who are changing the no-fly list policy to prevent a repeat of what happened in the case of the times square bomb suspect. faisal shahzad boarded a plane on monday, even though he'd been added to the no-fly list just that afternoon. chuck roberts is keeping an eye on these developments. you are bringing us up to speed. it's so much more indicative of what a close call. >> he was on the list for four hours. four hours. they've changed that. in fact, a lot has changed in the last day. from now on, airlines will have to check that within two hours of being notified. they have to keep refreshing it. previously they had only updates every 24 hours. last night new york congressman charlie rangel talked to larry king about why that change needed to be made. >> whatever went wrong, i hope they get their acts together and correct it.
12:02 pm
we learn every day, and the good thing about this is that nobody was hurt in either case. but that's the question and someone ought to come up with the answer and see that it doesn't happen again. >> homeland security official says airlines could be fined if they don't comply with the new tough policy. we have also learned today that shahzad seemed to know securities were closing in. sources say when he was removed from that emirates air flight he said to the law enforcement official, i was expecting you. are you nypd or fbi? shahzad is now in federal custody. intelligence officials said his father-in-law and friend were detained for questioning in pakistan yesterday. in karachi, officials say more people were taken into custody today. they wouldn't say how many or who they were. investigators do want to know if shahzad acted alone, obviously, or as part of a larger plot and what training he might have had. court documents show shahzad had a prepaid cell phone activated april 16th, deactivated april
12:03 pm
28th. the documents also reveal he'd recently received a dozen calls from pakistan, including five on the day he bought the nissan pathfinder, the one that was bought in connecticut, later found at times square filled with explosive material. those phone calls stopped three days before the failed bombing. shahzad is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, acts of terrorism, transcending national boundaries and three other counts in connection with the saturday incident. christi, back to you. >> chuck, thank you. now we want to get to, can you imagine, some of the passengers who were on board the dubai-bound emirates flight with shahzad? they are talking. they say they had to go through another round of security screening at jfk after the plane was brought back to the terminal. the plane did take off for dubai. passengers arriving there said initially they had no idea what was going on. >> they were very discreet. we didn't even know when they came on. the captain announced that a
12:04 pm
passenger had been removed. we did not know who that passenger was. again, until we read the cnn teletype. that's how we discovered who it was. >> the dubai-based emirates airline says two passengers were questioned but they were released and allowed to travel on that flight. does the fact -- this is what we want to ask you. does the fact shahzad was able to board that plane and was only caught minutes before his flight took off expose gaps in the system do you think, or are you confident that the no-fly system works as is? call us at 1-877-tell-hln or e-mail us at cnn.com/hln. you can text us, too. views, your comment and name to or go to our facebook pages. find me at christi paul hln. i'd love to hear from you. you can go to twitter, too. follow us at twitter.com/hln and give us your views. this is what it's all about. >> well, 19 people died from the recent flash flooding across tennessee. nine of those deaths were in
12:05 pm
nashville. and the city itself has really been devastated by the weekend rains. the country music hall of fame has closed. and fortunately the water is primarily confined to a mechanical room. and the fame grand ole opry has had to move some performances due to flooding. a lot of country music stars call nashville home. keith urban spoke to cnn about the devastating floods that have hit his adopted hometown. >> community sprlt has never been more evident than it is now. i notice all the radio stations down here are playing virtually no music. it's all pledge drives happening right now. >> interesting. >> i know the red cross and other facilities are maxed out. but there's so many people offering, you know, their own support to take people in and clothe them and that sort of thing. so everybody is doing their little bit. i'm quite sure there's going to be, you know, benefit concerts and what not to help people as well. certainly financially helping my wife and i are. >> of course, his wife is actress nicole kidman. the good news is the national weather service says the water
12:06 pm
level in nashville has dropped about three feet since sunday. several aid organizations are working to assist victims of the flooding in tennessee because it's not just nashville. it's surrounding areas as well. a lot of folks suffering here. to find out how you can help go to cnn.com/impact. you'll find a list of agencies that are providing aid there. thank you for doing that. we now know over corey haim died of natural causes. an autopsy report reveals he had traces of antidepressants and marijuana in his system but it was pneumonia that caused his death. the former child star died in march after a well-documented battle with drug addiction. coroners also said he had an enlarged heart and badly clogged arteries, which were also factors in his death apparently. addiction of any kind no laughing matter. still a lot of us have a hard time believing that sex addiction is a real disease. a lot of celebrities have gone to rehab to treat the problem, as of late. so that's why our joe carter hit the streets and asked, can you really believe or can you really
12:07 pm
be, i guess, addicted to sex? >> i'm joe carter. this is hln's views from the street. men caught cheating claim sex addiction. do you think this is a real problem or just an excuse? this video here is of some celebrities that have been in the news recently. jesse james. sandra bullock's husband. tiger woods. >> right. >> and then david duchovny the actor. david duchovny and jesse james have both admitted to checking themselves in to sex addiction rehab. tiger woods allegedly did. begs the question, is sex addiction a problem? >> i don't think sex addiction is. i think marital morales are an issue. >> i think it's a real problem that guys can struggle with. i think there's temptation like all around us in the world. i think it's great they've checked into rehab. >> i really feel like it's more of an excuse than addiction because addiction is more something that you can't help. i think you can help it. >> i can see that being a problem for people. kind of like alcohol or anything else. something that kind of takes over your life. >> i mean, i think there's a sex
12:08 pm
addiction problem, but i really feel that these guys are just dishonest in their relationships. >> cover-up basically. >> why can't you be single and have sex addiction. why do you have to be married and cheat on somebody? >> do you think these so-called sex addicts can be rehabilitated? >> yeah, i think if they sort of see like the affects it's taking and the -- that they can get pleasure out of other things in life, i think they can definitely be cured. >> it would be hard to -- >> what you can do to change someone's mind-set about how much sex does it pay to have and with who. >> i think they could get it worked out if they underwent serious treatment. >> i believe there's no such thing as being a sex addict. so i would say no. >> sex is not new. sex addiction excuse is new. >> i am joe carter. i'll see you on the street. >> thank you, joe. going to see him next time. all righty. it's only going to -- it only took ten minutes for
12:09 pm
firefighters to pull three people from the edge of this dam. oh, my goodness. was this intense? you have to see this rescue. whe. i'd get this tightness in my chest. like i was breathing through a straw. so i went back to my doctor again. we talked about choices in controller medicines. we chose symbicort to help control my asthma. [ man ] while it's not a rescue inhaler, symbicort improves my lung function, starting within 15 minutes. it helps give me the control to... [ inhales, exhales ] symbicort is a combination of two medicines. it will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms and should not be taken more than twice a day. symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol may increase the chance of asthma-related death, so it is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on other asthma medicines. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. with symbicort, my lung function starts to improve within 15 minutes, helping me... all day. symbicort is a good choice to help control my asthma. [ inhales ] [ exhales ] ask your doctor if it's a good choice for you. i got my first prescription free.

all right. we are getting word that the suspect in the killing of a female lacrosse player at the university of virginia is talking to police now. george huguely, a member of the men's lacrosse team facing first-degree murder charges in the death of yeardley love. jean casarez, a correspondent for "in session" on trutv joining us now from new york. i understand, and correct me if i'm wrong, that they had a relationship, these two. that it had just ended and huguely is now making some admissions to police. what is he admitting? >> it's amazing. normally legal documents such as search warrantasts, they are sealed or at least they remain closed for ten days. but they have been unsealed. we have them and we now know a little bit about what he told police on the early morning hours of just a couple of days ago. let's show everybody what theast
12:12 pm
for search warrant is saying. "george huguely admitted that on may 3rd, 2010, he was involved in an altercation with yeardley love and that during the course of the altercation, he shook love and her head repeatedly hit the wall. huguely admitted that he kicked his right foot through the door that leads to love's bedroom. they go on to say when authorities found yeardley love in her bedroom it says, quote, described finding yeardley love face down on her pillow in her bedroom. there was a pool of blood on her pillow. love had a large bruise on the right side of her face which appears to have been caused by blunt force trauma. love's right eye was swollen shut and there were bruises and scrapes to her chin. so much detail in these search warrantasts which give probable cause to search george huguely's apartment. that's what they were for. after his initial appearance in
12:13 pm
court, george huguely's lawyer actually made a statement on the courthouse steps. listen right now to francis lawrence. >> we are confident that miss love's death was not intended but an accident with a tragic outcome. in the meantime, george is withdrawing from the university of virginia and remains in the custody of the authorities. >> now what the attorney for george huguely is saying right there, he's admitting his client did it, but that it was an accident, which means it either is not first-degree murder because you can't intend to kill someone when it's an accident. so it's a lesser offense. or even no offense at all. but what's interesting is that when george huguely gave all these statements to police, he didn't have an attorney present. he was mirandized but kept talking. many times there are battles in court with that. as to whether it should come before the jury or not. she he was coerced in doing these things. it's interesting that his attorney would corner himself into a legal theory at this point when things could possibly
12:14 pm
change in the future. >> wow. no kidding. so we know what the attorney is saying. what are police saying? >> police are saying not as much as that. but we did hear last night on nancy grace's show the police chief of all of this, mr. longo spoke with nancy grace. take a listen to this. >> and the facts are horrific. they are shocking. they are incomprehensible. they are unthinkable. and to witness that and in particular, as a parent, to look at the body of a young girl, as you said, had so much to look forward to is just a terrible situation. >> yeardley love was a member of kappa alpha feta. i've been in correspondence with the head of the feta chapter. so many of them are seniors. they are trying to study for their finals and trying to graduate and having to deal with this tragedy that it's almost too much for any of them to cope with. >> you feel for all of them and her family. it's just hideous. thank you, jean. we appreciate it very much.
12:15 pm
want to show you something else here. some video that is not a movie, but it looks like it could be. here we go. you are watching firefighters. this is near atlanta. they are rescuing a woman dangling just inched from the edge of a dam. you see how they pulled her over there. she and two other hikers got trapped late yesterday at this rain-swollen creek. the rushing water was at least knee deep and led to a 30-foot drop as you see it there. now the two men were pulled to safety as well. but this dam is next to a popular recreation area. very, very delicate situation. but all is well fortunately. several police officers in california making their mark after helping a little boy whose bike was stolen from a church parking lot. yes, a church parking lot. 10-year-old elijah dicken says an older kid pushed him and took his bike last week. after filing a police report, some sacramento police officers decided to chip in for a brand new bike. >> a random act of kindness. >> so six police officers --
12:16 pm
>> six police officers -- >> out of their own pockets? >> yes. and they bought him this bike here. just out of their own pockets. you know icould never say enough. it was just -- i have never heard of such a thing. >> they do a lot of good stuff. and they should be known for that. and thank you. >> great illustration of how you never know how your actions could affect someone. he said he's now thinking of becoming a police officer when he grows up. >> the fda released this report about the recall of dozens of children's tylenol and mote rin products. the shocker they found inside the plant where this medicine was being made. welcome to progressive. nice calculator. i'm just trying to save money on my car insurance. you know, with progressive, you get the option

we're just getting word from emergency management officials in alabama that two people suffered severe burns in an explosion at redstone arsenal. this is the facility in huntsville where the army develops weapons and conducts missile training. still not clear what caused the explosion, but one paramedic described the scene as horrific. we do know everyone has been accounted for in that building, though, thankfully. we'll keep our eye on that for you. you might want to think twice before tossing those credit card offers. that junk mail might have
12:20 pm
something you want. hln money expert clark howard explains. >> well, one of the unexpected aftermaths of the credit card reforms of the card act is that now people's mailboxes suddenly are starting to fill back up with credit card solicitations. not everybody's mailbox. let me tell you who is likely to get a lot of offers. if your credit score is higher than typical, which would be somewhere mid700s or higher, you're going to find it's like the good old days or maybe in your mind the bad old days. you'll see offer after offer after offer. but here's the difference with the offers that are showing up now. most of the ones geared towards people who are higher income with higher credit scores are going to have annual fees with big packages of perks. now, believe it or not, there are lots of situations where for somebody who charges a good volume, pays the balance in full, then it's a good idea for you to pay an annual fee and

so good to have you company here. homeland security officials are changing the no-fly list policy to prevent a repeat of what happened in the case of the times square bomb suspect. faisal shahzad boarded a plane even though he'd been added to the no-fly list that afternoon. from now on, airlines have to check no-fly lists within two hours of being notified they'd been updated. previously they'd been required to check every 24 hours. last night new york congressman charles rangel talked to cnn's larry king about why they needed to make these changes. >> whatever went wrong, i hope they get their acts together and correct it.
12:31 pm
we learn every day and the good thing about this is that nobody was hurt in either case. but that's the question and someone ought to come up with the answer and see that it doesn't happen again. >> a homeland security official says airlines could be fined if they don't comply with this new policy. we also learned today that shahzad seemed to know investigators were closing in on him. sources tell our sister network cnn, when he was removed from that plane, shahzad said to the law enforcement official, "i was expecting you. are you nypd or fbi?" he is in federal custody now. intelligence officials say his father-in-law and a friend were detained. officials say more people were taken into custody today but wouldn't say how moan or who they were. investigators want to know if shahzad acted alone or as part of a larger plot perhaps. court documents show shahzad had a prepaid cell phone that was activated april 16th and deactivated april 28th.
12:32 pm
the documents also reveal he'd recently received a dozen calls from pakistan, including five the day he bought the nissan pathfinder that was later found in times square filled with explosive material. those phone calls stopped three days before the failed bombing. i want to go to beth karras now from "in session" on your sister network trutv who is following the latest in this case. all right. the phone calls stopped. i am still taken by this statement he made. your with nypd or fbi. he knew they were coming for him. >> not only is that surprising or maybe it's not so surprising. what's so surprising is he stayed in the area, in the new york or tri-state area for a couple of days since the failed bomb attempt. and he apparently was aware of the news reports. very widely reported locally, nationally, internationally when he learned that the authorities learned that the car, the pathfinder had been purchased in connecticut. he thought they may be on to him.
12:33 pm
and then the events unfolded of monday where he bought the one-way ticket with cash. he was placed on the no-fly zone also on that list for seven hours before he was discovered and about to take off. >> he was supposed to be in court yesterday. that did not happen. do we know what the hold-up is? >> he is talking to authorities and giving useful information. that's about all we know. but they had to bring him before a judge within 48 hours by law. unless he waived his presentment, it's called. and they do that routinely in this courthouse, defendant suspects do. so he is now waiving the 48-hour time apparently. he is giving them information. they continue to corroborate it apparently. it has led to some detentions and pakistan it appears as he gives information thad they take breaks, other officials will check out the lead and come back with more information to him and on and on goes the interrogation. when they are satisfied they've got enough from him and it's a reasonable time, then he'll go before a magistrate and it will be called a presentment on the
12:34 pm
charges help he'll enter a not guilty plea. he'll be held on bound and detained and held over for grand jury. it's not going to happen today. it could happen tomorrow or friday. >> it seems like he's been very forthcoming at the end of the day. how will that -- will that have any bearing, i guess, on the consequences for him in a courtroom? >> good question. and, yes, it probably will have some bearing because judges will take into consideration one's level of cooperation. say if he were to plead, doesn't sound like he's going to have much of a case to argue to a jury to find him not guilty or of something lesser. so assuming he takes a plea if indeed he's cooperating and giving useful information, a court would take that into consideration. now he's facing up to life with the charges we see right now. there could be more charges. but maybe a court will give him a term of years. >> thanks so much for walking us
12:35 pm
through it here. this ever-changing situation. we appreciate it. >> another situation we've really been watching heavily. floodwaters that are receding now in tennessee and people are getting a closer look at the devastati devastation. 19 people died in the recent flash flooding. nine of those deaths were right there in nashville. the country music hall of fame has closed. now fortunately the water we understand is primarily confined to a mechanical room. and authorities are still warning people don't drive on those flooded streets. you don't know how deep it is. the famed grand ole opry has had to move some performances. the national weather service says the water level in nashville has dropped about three feet since sunday. one of our ireporters in tennessee said leaving her house and getting to her daughter's graduation in memphis was no easy task. kimberly smith joins us on the phone. i am glad you are safe and able to talk to us. how are you? >> i'm fine now. >> good.
12:36 pm
good. i'm glad to hear it. we're looking at some of the pictures here that you were basically the image that you were seeing out your front windshield as i see it. describe what it was like trying to get through that. >> it was kind of terrifying to say the least. my daughter was trying to get to graduation and was nervous. she couldn't grab her cell so she asked me to attempt to drive. and we did. and i was just, you know, focused on getting her there. it was an important day for her. and so we just began getting on road after road trying to find the easiest way to get -- >> easiest route? >> yeah. i wanted to ask, some of the pictures we're seeing. did you travel through on those roads or did you turn around and go back and find another way? >> some of the roads we have to turn around. there was just no way the water was moving so fast. highway 51 where -- is the road that i live off of. actually was shut down to one
12:37 pm
lane. and we -- the police were there telling us you know, we had to roll down our window and they said move quickly. this lane has just opened for one -- one-way traffic. and so they would let us go southbound and then they would close it and then let the northbound route go. and we were also told -- i mean, just 30 minutes after we went through there, that route that they actually shut the roads down. >> they did. well, kimberly, i understand that you did get your daughter to graduation as we saw there for one last picture. congratulations to the both of you. good luck to her and her future professional endeavors. and thank you for sharing your time with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> glad you are all good and safe. thank you so much to kimberly smith for the pictures. when you have pictures or video from your part of the world go to ireport.com and click on the upload now link. certainly plenty of adults have to watch their cholesterol. but it's an issue for some kids, too. and their young age may affect how they treat it.

have to check the no-fly list if the government send them an update or a change. the homeland security department changed the policy in an attempt to prevent what happened on monday. that's when the suspect in the attempted bombing of times square was allowed to board a plane headed for dubai, despite his name being on the no-fly list. previously airlines had 24 hours to update that list. his name just got on it that afternoon. so we want you to weigh in on this. do you thing no-fly system works or were gaps in the system exposed? a lot of responses on my facebook page. go to christi paul hln and get into the discussion we're having here today. here are a couple of comments. bob wrote to us saying the fact he was on the airplane exposes flaws in the system. faa personnel weren't the ones to pull him off the plane. it left -- if left to themselves, a known terror suspect would have been on a plane to dubai. and another facebook friend named bob says i think it does
12:43 pm
both, proving it works while exposing flaws at the same time. just think, they caught him, but then again, they almost didn't. we asked a few people in the cnn atri atrium. here's what noreen from palm beach, florida, had to say. maybe. do we have noreen? all righty. we're going to go to the phone here. give us a chance to find noreen. we know she's there somewhere. we have faith who is in endfield, connecticut. do you thing system worked? >> no, i don't. >> where do you think it failed? >> i think that it needs to be checked more often, i think. it's kind of scary that this gentleman made it on the plane, obviously showing that it doesn't work. maybe our computers need to be updated that when his name was
12:44 pm

that's how long airlines now to have check the no fly list to refresh their database. if the government sends any update or change. the homeland security department changed the policy to prevent what happened on monday when the suspect of the attempted bombing in times square was allowed to board a flight headed for dubai. in spite of his name being on the no fly list. previously the airlines had 24 hours. by love your views on this. does this worry you? does no fly system work okay or were gaps and posed? at of responses on facebook. you can jump in. here's a couple comments. valerie writes, i believe there will always be mistakes made in cases like this. the fact he was arrested only 53 hours after the attempted bombing in new york says a lot about our fantastic men and women working on the case. and dan says, i think the no fly list should update on its own. this was a real test we failed again. that airline company needs to be fined for human error on their
1:42 pm
end. we asked a few people in the cnn atrium today for their thoughts. >> i personally think that it did work, the system, and i believe that they probably just let this terrorist get on the plane so they would find out who else would be with him. and i think that we caught him. he didn't get to pakistan and i believe it did work. >> the system worked. let's take a phone call or two. mike is in helena, montana. you think it is obvious the system did not work as well as it should, right? >> caller: yes, i believe the system could be checked. why can you speak with somebody over the internet from washington on the west coast and see their picture if you're speaking to someone in florida within seconds over the internet. the tsa should have a better system than google or napster or anybody. i believe people are spending too much time trying to save their own agency, rather than to
1:43 pm
protect the american people. that's what it is all about. >> interesting point, mike. you're right. the technology is there. no doubt about that. jenny in palm springs, california. in the desert. how are you? >> caller: i'm good. how are you? >> what do you think? did the system work? >> caller: i think it is okay but it has a lot. gaps. as soon as we let our guard down, that's when we get struck with terrorism. i fly very frequently. when this first happened on 9/11, it was very, very hectic and you had to be there in 90 minutes in advance and you were there pretty much going through security for the whole 90 minutes. now it's very more nonchalant. they're trying to get travelers in and out and i think they're putting this on the back burner. i got stopped in security because i had a water bottle but they didn't get my eight-ounce can of mousse that i'm not allowed to bring in. it is getting better but there are hooft gaps. >> competing interests, too. the airline wants to get that
1:44 pm
flight off on time. if they don't, they pay a penalty. a lot of rebooking problems. >> and we pay the price with our lives. >> exactly. glad you got your mousse okay. does the fact shahzad was able to board that flight and only caught two minutes before the flight took off expose any gaps in the system? or hey, 53 hours from suv smoking in times square to the capture of the suspect. mabel the system works fine. call us, e-mail at cnn.com/hln. we're also on twitter. ben roethlisberger escaped charges in a recent sexual assault investigation but a new "sports illustrated" sarl bound to stir up more controversy for the steelers quarterback. an editor will gunfire us some new roethlisberger revelations. . it goes right where you need it, relieving allergy eyes in minutes. visine®-a. the most complete allergy eye drop.

1:48 pm
a sexual nature but just the way ben roethlisberger has been acting is not a surprise to a lot of people in the pittsburgh area. we found out, we had reporters in pittsburgh and reno, nevada, milledgeville where this incident took place, we've gotten that ben roethlisberger had a sense of entitlement. he acted like he's bigger than anybody else. he went around town saying, do you know who i am? i'm the star quarterback here. so his pattern of behavior that led to this latest incident is not necessarily a surprise to everybody, and pittsburgh fans who are extremely loyal to their steelers have worshipped ben since he was drafted out of ohio are really fed one this guy. >> was he vulgar? did he leave a bar without paying a tab? give me some details. >> yeah. he would go, he would literally go around every bar or restaurant in town and he would
1:49 pm
expect the absolute vip treatment. he would expect everybody to kiss his feet. he expected people to pay his tab. in one instance, he refused to pay a $5 cover charge. you would think someone who makes millions a year could pay a $5 cover charge but he thought that was beneath him. he really treated everybody around him like dirt. he had these body guards all around him that really shoed people away. refused to sign autographs. the very people that cheered for him and were there for him every single sunday, and were there for him in 2006, where he had a very serious car accident and nearly died, he really shunned they will in the face. >> what about the car accident? did it have any lasting effects medically? >> it is very interesting that you bring that up. we have an article on si.com on which david ep.stein talks to a prominent neurologist who specializes in frontal lobe brain injuries. and the frontal lobe is the part
1:50 pm
in the brain that affects your judgment. and whether you know right from wrong and this neurologist said some people know when to keep m shut and when not to say something inappropriate, this part of the brain that may had been injured in this motorcycle accident where he, ben roethlisberger was not wearing a helmet, and hit his head several times and fractured a skull in addition to breaking a jaw and several teeth, could have affected his overall judgment. so it is quite possible he suffered some long-term damage. >> did you talk to him or the steelers' trainer or anybody else about this? did you get a reaction from the steelers? >> the steelers refused to comment you know at all about this. and the neurologist we talked to did not examine roethlisberger directly. he could not have commented, but he said in his experience and from the pattern of behavior that we uncovered it is quite possible that he suffered some sort of head injury that could affect his judgment and --
1:51 pm
>> and his friend's apologized for his behavior is that part of the story. >> yeah, it's really sad. they walk around town and some of his closest friends as roethlisberger would berate, waiters and waitresses and even the owner of certain establishments that he frequented, he would leave sometimes without paying a bill and they would clean up behind him and say look, i'm is i'm embarrassed for his behavior. >> assistant managing editor for "sports illustrated," the article is out right now, it will get a lot of attention i promise you, there it is "the hangover" cover "s.i." a high-speed chase in houston had a bit of a surprising ending. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@ smart...you're staying at this resort for free? how? welcomerewards from hotels.com. see when i accumulate 10 nights, i get one free. and...they let me choose where to use them. the loyalty program he signed us up for has all these restrictions, blackout dates, a crazy point system... and we couldn't stay here.

we have an update for you on this explosion and fire at an oil refinery southeast of downtown san antonio. these are live pictures here as it's happening. fire officials say two people were hurt reason a spokesman for the company says an 18-wheeler was exploded as it was placed on a loading rack. now, there are 25 fire trucks on the scene here. this refinery apparently specialized in petroleum products, including jet fuel and diesel. so obviously, a very delicate situation there. according to local reports, a nearby apartment complex is being readied for evacuation and roads within a one-mile radius
2:01 pm

2:02 pm
talked to larry king about why that needed to be changed. >> whatever went wrong i hope they get their acts together and correct it. we learn every day. and the good thing about this is that nobody was hurt in either case but that's the question and someone ought to come up with the answer and see that it doesn't happen again. >> a homeland security official says airlines could be fined if they don't comply with the new policy, if they're late in complying. we also learned today that shahzad seemed to know that investigators were closing in on him. source tell our sister network, cnn that when he was removed from that emirates flight bound for dubai he said to enforcement -- "i was expecting you. are you nypd or fbi?" and now he's talking. his father-in-law and friend were detained yesterday in pakistan. officials in karachi say more people were taken into custody today, wouldn't say how many or who. investigators want to know if shahzad acted alone or part of a larger plot. did he get terror training or
2:03 pm
explosive's training? court documents show he had a prepale cell phone that was activated april 16th and then de-activated april 28th. the documents also revealed he'd also received a dozen calls from pakistan, including five on the day he bought the nissan pathfinder in connecticut, the one that was found in times square filled with explosives. those phone calls stopped three days before the failed bombing. shahzad is charged with attempting to use a weapons of mass destruction, acts of terrorism, transcending national boundaries and three other counts in connection with the saturday night incident. christi, we've got a lot pleasure to cover. >> yeah, we do. just think of the passengers, chuck, who were on board that flight right now and what they might be thinking. >> yep. >> on board of that dubai-bound emirates fly with shahzad and back on their way about four hours after that but they had to go through another round of screen, security screening and passengers said initially they just had no idea what was going on. >> they were very discreet. we didn't even know when they came on. the captain announced that a
2:04 pm
passenger had been removed. >> that was it. >> we did not know who that passenger was. again, until we read the cnn teletype, that's how we discovered who it was. >> now the dubai-based emirates airline says two passengers were questioned but they were released and allowed to travel on that flight, so we're wondering does the fact that shahzad was able to board a plane and only caught minutes before his flight took off expose gaps in this system that worry you or are you confident that the no-fly system works? call us right now 1-877-tell-hln, or e-mail us at cnn.com/hln. you can text us, too view, comments and name to hln. standard rates apply. and go to our facebook pages. you can find me at christi paul, hln. i'd love to hear from you. chuck roberts has a page too and we're on twitter. follow us at twitter.com and hln. let us hear your view, that's what it's all about. other big story we're watching are the waters that seem to be receding now in nashville. the city's director of water

2:37 pm
they get their acts together and correct it. we learn every day. and the good thing about this is that nobody was hurt in either case. but that's the question and someone ought to come up with the answer and see that it doesn't happen again. >> homeland security official says airlines could be fined if they don't comply with this new policy. and here's something else we're learning today. shahzad seemed to know investigators were closing in on him. sources tell our sister network cnn, when he was removed from the plane, shahzad said to the law enforcement official, "i was expecting you. are you nypd or fbi?" now, shahzad's in federal custody. intelligence officials say his father-in-law and a friend were detained for questioning in pakistan yesterday and officials in karachi say more people were taken into custody today but they wouldn't say how many or who they were. investigators want to know though whether shahzad acted alone or part of a larger plot? and apparently he is talking. court documents show shahzad had a prepaid cell phone that was
2:38 pm
activated april 16th and de-activated april 28th and the documents reveal he'd recently received a dozen calls from pakistan, including five the day he bought that nissan pathfinder that was found on times square filled with explosives. those phone calls stopped three days before the failed bombing. officials at bp say it could be the fastest way to stop the oil leak in the gulf of mexico, but they say there is no guarantee this dome will work. here are live pictures we're going to bring you more and tell you what their plan is in a moment.

airlines now have to check the no-fly list if the government sends them an update or a change to it. now the homeland security department modified that policy in an attempt to prevent what happened monday. that's of course when the suspect in the attempted bombing at times square was allowed to board a plane headed for dubai despite his name being on that flo f-- no-fly list. so we want your views. do you think the no-fly system work or were gaps in the system expose here? lots of responses on my facebook page. i would like to invite you to join in on the conversation there. just go to christi paul hln and give us a talking to. here's a facebook comment from josephine. "in my view the system worked," she says. obviously it did because the end result they, caught him. he's in custody. sure are there flaw, errors and imperfection but if they still captured the guy after after the mistakes, mission accomplished, she said. now we also spoke to some people in the cnn eigatrium to get the
2:42 pm
views. >> i think the agencies are communicated better since 9/11. i think things are working, have improved a lot so you know those in this country who communicate with others with the technology and i think that things have improved a lot, communication. >> all right. let's go to the phones. larry's calling from ft. worth, texas. larry, thank you for taking the time. do you think that the no-fly system works? >> caller: yeah i think that they're doing a great job. our national security is doing an excellent job i believe. i think the window was still open as far as them catching the bomber. because could have forced the plane to hand or have it return. also, i feel a hundred times safer here in the united states than i do anywhere in the world. >> you do? do you fly a lot? >> caller: i fly occasionally but i just don't fly overseas anymore. >> okay and if they would make other changes, you know to the no-fly list that may say, delay,
2:43 pm
your ability to get on a plane, are you up for that? is that okay with you? >> caller: no, i don't have a problem with that. because safety is more important than bothering our inconvenience over here. >> larry, thank you very much for the phone call. we're getting e-mails too. this one from patrick in florida. he says quit think the two-hour rule should had been in place all along. it seems strange to me that the old rula, loud airlines 24 hours to check the no-fly list." that rule seems to take away the sense of urgency that's necessary when try to track down and capture someone suspected terrorist activities. here's another facebook comment too. george wrote to us saying "it only took 53 hours to arrest him, under 24 hours to have his name and search his apartment. it's taken over nine years to find bin laden. just saying." all righty, so let me pose the question to you, does the fact that shahzad was able to board a plane and was only caught minutes before his flight took off, exposed gaps in the system, or are you confident that the no-fly system is working? call us right now

2:46 pm
well, moments ago in san antonio, texas, the police chief spoke about that explosion and fire at an oil refinery southeast of downtown san antonio. here's some the pictures coming in. chief charles hood said the fire is going to be burning for a while here. the weather is affecting where the smoke blows obviously. and the city does have a plan for shutting down the refinery. shelter's opened and no schools have been evacuated within a half mile radius of the scene though. but again, it's a refinery there in san antonio, texas. here i think we've got this sound now from the sheriff.
2:47 pm
>> we can shutdown, we're trying to shut some of those valves down. the rest the product, the pla plant -- plan is to burn it off. we're coordinating with the probing authorities to make sure that we maintain vigilance on the river system, drainage, anything like that. so again, our main concern right now is evacuation which we have done on everything within a half mile. retreated and transport anybody that has been injured within this and we're still searching actively for one person. currently we have members of our housing materials response team, technical rescue team who are going to go in and do a recon of a valve system to see if we can shut that off, again a very dangerous situation because we do not have hose line protection that we're going to be able to drag in there. do a quick recon. so if we can work with the refinery personnel to shut these tanks down and basically stop the flow, then let everything -- >> again, there's the fire chief, excuse me, that's the
2:48 pm
sheriff obviously but fire chief there in san antonio, and obviously a lot of resources there to burn since it's a refinery of several specialty petroleum products there so we'll keep our eye on that for you. >> a massive oil sheen from the gulf of mexico washing up on barrier islands now and that could turn to gooey crude as early as tomorrow. say the spill could reach as much as 2.5 million gallons a day if it's not tapped so a barge is hauling a huge concrete and steel box to the scene of the oil rig collapse. here are live pictures of that barge. engineers hope to lower it over the gusher tomorrow and then siphon the oil through it but bp officials put out a reality check on that idea. >> we will be hooking it up over the course of friday and the weekend. this has never been deployed in this water. a technique that the industry uses often in the shallow water 300 to 400 feet. it's never been deployed at
2:49 pm
5,000 feet so we should not expect it will go perfectly. there will be issues to deal with as we deploy it. we're getting word that the suspect in the killing of female lacrosse player at university of virginia is talking to police. george huguely a member the men's lacrosse team facing first-degree murder charges in the death of yeardley love. jean casarez is correspondent for "in session" on our sister network trutv. i understand they had a relationship together. that relationship had kind of crumbled, sort of speak, and that huguely is making some admissions. what is he saying? >> well it's really amazing and the reason that we know this, christi is three search warrants have been executed soy far. one on his apartment, george huguely who has been charged with first-degree murder, another on a computer that he took from yeardley love that they wanted to search, and third, because they wanted to take pictures of his body because of injuries that were on his body. now here's what we know from the affidavit giving probable cause to search his apartment. it says, "george huguely
2:50 pm
admitted that on may 3rd, 2010, he was involved in an altercation with yeardley love. and that during the altercatione shook love and her head repeatedly hit the wall. huguely admitted he kicked his right foot through the door that lids to love's bedroom. as far as the energy personnel that arrived to love's apartment, it says, quote, described finding yeardley love facedown on her pillow in her bedroom. there was a pool of blood on her pillow. love had a large bruise on the right side of her face which appears to have been caused by blunt force trauma. lov lov love's right eye was swollen shut. >> we are confident that miss love's death was not intended but an accident with a tragic outcome. in the meantime, george is withdrawing from the university of virginia and remains had in
2:51 pm
the custody of the authorities. >> so that's admitting that he did it but saying it was an accident. that can mean not guilty. >> thank you so much, jean. we appreciate it very much. all right. you know, a lot of celebrities have said sex addiction is the reason for their bad behavior. many of you aren't buying it. >> why can't you be single and have sex addiction? why do you have to be married and cheat on somebody? >> the cover-up basically. >> our very own joe carter hitting the streets to get your views on sex addiction. @@@@@@@@@

a lot of issues, a lot of great stories. thanks for choosing hln "news and views." i'm chuck roberts. homeland security officials are changing the no-fly policy. faisal shahzad boarded a flight for dubai monday even though he had been added to the no-fly list that afternoon. christi paul keeping track in developments in the case. what's the latest? >> from now on, from this point on airlines are going to have to check the no-fly list within two hours of being notified that they've been updated. previously the airlines had to check every 24 hours. last night charles rangle talked to larry king about why this gaining is so needed. >> whatever went wrong i hope they get their acts together and correct it. we learn every day and the good thing about this was nobody was hurt in either case, but that's the question and someone ought to come up with the answer. >> well, they're doing that because a homeland security
3:02 pm
official says airlines could be fined now if they don't comply with the new policy. we also have learned that shahzad seemed to know investigators were closed in on him. sources tell our sister network cnn when he was taken off that plane, shahzad said to the law enforcement official, quote, i was expecting you. are you nypd or fbi? he's in federal court -- or federal custody, and intelligence officials say his father-in-law and a friend were detained for questioning in pakistan yesterday. officials in karachi say more people were taken into custody today as well although they wouldn't reveal how many or who they were, but investigators want to know obviously if shahzad acted alone or as part of a larger plot, and we understand he is talking to authorities. court documents show shahzad had a prepaid cell phone, too, that was activated april 16th and deact vkctivated april 28th. he had recently received a dozen calls from pakistan, including
3:03 pm
five the day he bought the pathfinder that was found in times square. the phone calls stopped three days before the failed bombing. he's charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, acts of terrorism, transcending national boundaries and three other counts. but as you know, it's a developing situation and more charges could certainly be stapled to the list already. >> but he's talking, by all accounts. >> boy, is he ever. >> thanks. many of the passengers on board that boeing 777 bound for dubai were with him, and they're on their way back in about four hours. they had to go through another round of security screening. some passengers said initially they had no idea what was going on. >> they were very discreet. we didn't even know when they came on. the captain announced that a passenger had been removed. >> that was it. >> we did not know who that passenger was, again, until we read the cnn teletype.
3:04 pm
that's how we discovered who it was. >> the dubai-based emirates airlines said two passengers were questioned but released and allowed to travel on that flight. does the fact that faisal shahzad was allowed to board the plane, was only minutes before taking off, does that expose gaps in the system? or are you overall confident this no-fly system is working? what changes might you want? call us toll free 1-877-tell-hln. e-mail at cnn.com/hln, or text views and your comment and name to hlntv. and facebook is up and running, christi paul hln and there is my page, chuck roberts hln. two people were hurt in an explosion and fire an oil refinery southeast of sount san anton antonio. a spokesman for the company says an 18-wheeler exploded as it was placed on a loading rack. 25 fire trucks are on scene. the fire chief in san antonio just briefed reporters. >> again, our main concern right
3:05 pm
now is evacuation, which we have done on everything within a half mile. we're treating and transporting anybody that has been injured within this and we're still searching actively for one person. currently we have members of our hazardous materials response team, technical rescue team that are going to go in and do a recon of a valve system to see if we can't shut that off. again, very dangerous situation because we do not have hose line protection that we're going to be able to drag in there. so we're going to go in and do a quick recon, see if we can work with the refinery personnel to shut these tanks down and basically stop the flow. >> residents within a one-mile radius of the fire are being evacuated. nashville's floodwaters are receding and the director of water services are asking people to conserve water because only one plant is operational right now. 19 people died from the recent flash flooding across middle tennessee. nine of them were in nashville. the country music hall of fame has closed. and the famed grand ole opry has
3:06 pm
had to move performances. many country music stars call nashville home including keith urban. >> the community spirit has never been more evident than it is right now. i know all the radio stations down here are playing virtually no music. it's all pledge drives happening right now and i know the red cross and the other facilities are maxed out. but there's so many people offering their own support to take people in and clothe them and that sort of thing. so everybody is doing their little bit. i'm quite sure there's going to be benefit concerts and whatnot to help people as well. we're certainly financially helping my wife and i. >> his wife being actress nicole kidman. the good news is the national weather service says the water level in nashville has dropped about three feet. and several aid groups are up and operating working to assist victims of the tennessee floods. to find out how you can help, go to cnn.com/impact. get the whole list of agencies providing aid. addiction of any kind is no laughing matter.
3:07 pm
still, many of us have had a hard time believing sex addiction is real. lots of celebrities have gone to rehab to treat sex addiction that's why our joe carter hit the streets to ask can you really be addicted to sex? i'm joe carter and this is hln's "views from the street." men caught cheating claim sex addiction. do you think this is a real problem or just an excuse? this video here is of some celebrities in the news recently, jesse james, tiger woods, and then david duchovny, the actor. david duchovny and jesse james both admitting to checking themselves into sex addiction rehab. is sex addiction a problem? >> i don't think sex addiction is a problem. i think marital morals are an issue. >> i think it's a real problem that guys can struggle with. i think there's temptation like all around us in the world and i think it's great they got checked into rehab. >> i feel like it's more of an excuse than an ajix becauseddice
3:08 pm
addiction is something you can't help. >> i can see it being a problem for people, like alcohol, something that takes over your life. >> i think there's a sex addiction problem but i really feel these guys are just dishonest in their relationships. >> it's a cover-up basically. >> why can't you be single and have sex addiction? why do you have to be married and cheat on somebody? >> do you think these so-called sex addicts can be rehabilitated? >> yeah, i think if they sort of see the effects it's taking and that they can get pleasure out of other things in life, i think they can be cured. >> it would be hard to think of what you could do to change someone's mindset about how much sex they will pay to have and with who. >> i think it could be worked out if they went into serious treatment. >> i believe there's no such thing as being a sex addict so i would say no. >> sex is not new. sex addiction excuse is new.

tennessee finally getting a break from heavy storm that is left nashville's homes, businesses, and roads underwater. the death toll across the volunteer state stands at nine in music city alone. that's where regina of wsmv was when she checked in earlier. >> you can see this entire street is lined with debris. every home on this street was affected. keep in mind, this is a small street in west nashville. tragically we heard a very sad story from 908 here. you mentioned 19 deaths. we're told two of them were from this home. it was an elderly couple.
3:31 pm
the husband was in a wheelchair, the wife was not. the wife would not leave him. they both passed away, unfortunately, in this flooding. everywhere you see, you see children's toys, furniture, you see damaged homes. one of the homes that we see is right here. this one here on dell ray was actually up to the roof top with flooding and right now we're going to join bobbi jo davidson. bobbi jo, we wanted to speak with you for just a second. i know your home is completely damaged. >> yes. we had water up to our roofline on sunday. i was in missouri, and -- to go get my wedding dress. we're getting married in four weeks. had gone back to missouri and was planning on leaving sunday morning to come home for work. we're both teachers, and my fiance who lives a block up from here called me and said turn around, i-24 was closed. my house had water up to the roofline. >> when you got back, what did you think? >> oh, my gosh.
3:32 pm
i mean, i had pictured devastation. i had pictured my belongings gone, but it's really unbelievable. i mean i think it really hit me this morning, you know, the last couple days it's just been like systematic go through the motions, but all of a sudden today it's just been like this is really all of my things and it's no more. >> everything right here. this is your furniture here. you just moved in in august. >> all my furniture. they're making us create piles, wood, furniture, crash, and electronics. all our appliances got taken out yesterday. >> you mentioned there are kids next door, families who lost really everything. >> i moved here in september, so luckily it was just me and my things here. i had kind of downsized from moving apartments. i know the family next door to me, they have three kids, and they just keep bringing stuff out, and it just breaks my heart that, you know, they brought their kids out the other day and the kids are walking around the piles and it was just like this is going to be memories for them forever. unreal.
3:33 pm
>> thank you so much. i'm glad you're safe at least. >> thank you. >> this is just one area, chuck, of the entire west nashville area. we have other areas, bellevue, several cities, four counties right now that are getting federal aid from fema. so a lot of damage. you see areas hike this really everywhere. i'm from this area and seeing some places the landscape just doesn't look like it's looked for forever. the 500-year unprecedented flood. this is the scene here at dell ray where dozens of volunteers are helping here and, of course, across middle tp where so many families and lives are changed. >> changing forever, too. regina, thank you. nashville affiliate wsmv. the weather service says the water level in the city and nearby williamson county, davidson county, has dropped three feet. one person was critically burned, another is missing after an explosion at an oil refinery just southeast of downtown san antonio where the fire chief said they're still looking for the driver of the truck that
3:34 pm
exploded. several other people were hurt. 25 fire pieces, trucks, other apparatus, arrived at the scene. residents within a mile radius are being evacuated and a local shelter is now open. well, a rainbow sheen from that massive oil spill in the gulf of mexico is washing up now on barrier islands and that could turn to gooey crude as early as tomorrow. engineers hope it may help clean things up though, this particular process right here. it's a dome, a barge is holing a very large concrete and steel box to the scene of the oil rig explosion. they will lower it 5,000 feet to the well head and siphon the oil through it that way. bp officials put out a reality check on the idea. >> we will be hooking it up over the course of friday and the weekend. this has never been deployed in this water depth. it's a technique that the industry uses often in the shallow water, 300 to 400 feet.
3:35 pm
it's never been deployed at 5,000 feet. we should not expect it will go perfectly. there will be issues to deal with. >> the spill could reach as much as 1 -- 2.5 million gallons a day. faisal shahzad boarded a flight monday for dubai even though he had been added to the no-fly list that afternoon. so from now on airlines have to check the no-fly list within two hours of being notified they have been updated. previously the airlines had been given a 24-hour window to recheck for updates. last night new york congressman charlie rangel talked to cnn's larry king about why that needed to be changed. >> whatever went wrong, i hope they get their acts together and correct it. we learn every day, and the good thing about this is nobody was hurt in either case, but that's the question and someone ought to come up with the answer and see that it doesn't happen
3:36 pm
again. >> a homeland security official says airlines could be fined if they don't comply with the new policy. a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation into the failed bombing attempt says -- telling cnn that investigators found an interesting train receipt it showed shahzad got on board a train for new york from connecticut 30 minutes after parking the car bomb. the source says investigators think he ran to catch the train. it pulled out around 7:00 or 7:15 local time. the source is unsure what the destination was. shahzad seemed to know investigators were closing in. sources tell cnn when he was removed from the plane he said to law enforcement, i was expecting you. are you nypd or fbi? shahzad is in federal custody. he's already been before a judge. intelligence officials say his father-in-law and a friend were detained for questioning yesterday in pakistan. officials in karachi say more people were take noon custody
3:37 pm
today. they wouldn't say how many or who. investigators wanted to know if he acted alone. what training he may have received. court documents show shahzad had a prepaid cell phone activated april 16th and deactivated april 28th. the documents also reveal he had recently received a dozen calls from pakistan, five on the day he bought that nissan pathfinder, the one that was found in times square filled with explosives. those phone calls stopped three days before the failed bombing. we've been asking you does the arrest of the man accused of trying to detonate a bomb in times square and kill a lot of people mean our safety guards work or was there a lapse, a very obvious lapse? does it highlight a problem with airline security?

3:40 pm
we told you about the homeland security department's big change in the policy for the no-fly list in light of the arrest of the suspect in the failed car bombing in times square. it was a close call. it revealed several apparent security lapses. so do you think overall the system works, it needs to be refined? were there gaps exposed? does it make you feel apprehensi apprehensive? lots of responses on facebook. you can get there by searching chuck roberts hln. nate writes, the fact that he made it onto the plane, we know the no-fly rule is not enforced. if we can search everyone's carry-ons before the gate why not tighten up every rule before flights take off. katrina says, the security measures taken at airports are taken to avoid these situations but there's always room to error. we asked some people at the cnn atrium their thoughts.
3:41 pm
here is what shameka had to say. >> i think that things have gotten better since 9/11. there are still some things that can be fixed, but overall it has improved, security has improved since 9/11. >> let's take a phone call. i think we're talking to teresa in fayetteville, arkansas. how are you doing? >> caller: i'm doing great. >> do you think the system works? what do you think? >> caller: i think we dodged a bullet and i'll tell you one of the flaws is the human error factor. i don't think i understood that homeland security posts a list and allows the airlines to check against that list. i'm not sure why the homeland security folks don't have automatic access to who is on all airlines and then there's one data point to consistently check or you could shorten the time, check every ten minutes if you need to, but leaving it up to so many people in the airlines, you're just adding human error. >> every time you do. well, i think it was the customs or security that oversaw this
3:42 pm
and saw that his name was on the list that had already been cleared by the airline and that's why they boarded the flight. you're right, and the fact that they only check it every 24 hours, that raises some concerns. finish your thought. >> you're still asking for trouble with the two hours if you're leaving it up to that many people to check it. >> absolutely. cassandra, you think the system worked already. >> caller: i think it's working fine. i just think that we do need to buckle down. human error is in there. we are human, we do make mistakes and leaving it up to everyone when you've got 24 hours to check that is something that's just going to allow human error to come through. i mean, we can't be on top of everything. things are going to slip through. we are human, but if we can try to buckle it down even tighter maybe less will slip through. >> it's always helpful for one computer system to talk to the other.
3:43 pm
thanks. we're also getting e-mails including from michelle. why can't the process of alerting airlines of potential terrorists be modeled after the amber alert system? isn't every minute the one that counts? here is a facebook comment from marie. she writes, two hours is the new guideline to check the no-fly list. that's not good enough. all right. your chance to weigh in. does the fact that shahzad was able to board the plane and caught just before his flight pushed back expose a gap in the system or are you generally confident that the whole no-fly system works, and by the way they caught him 53 hours -- or caught the suspect 53 hours after that smoking suv was found in times square. so great policework all told. e-mail us though on this specific issue at cnn.com/hln. comment at hlntv. text views and your comment. standard text rates apply. we're on twitter, twiter.com/hln. i'm jane velez-mitchell and here's my issue.
3:44 pm
we spend a trillion dollars fighting terror in iraq and afghanistan, in the wars. but it seems like we don't spend a dime fighting terrorism right here at home. the sad thing is it almost cost us again. an suv packed full of explosives pulled right into times square and if it wasn't for some heads up hot dog vendors, thousands of people could be dead right now. here is what really gets me. look at this surveillance video. i mean, this is the 21st century. you try to tell me we have cameras that can see mars but we have to deal with this grainy video? at 5th street and broadway? we should have hd surveillance cameras all over new york city. and most important, we need people to actually be watching those cameras in real time, not just reviewing the footage after it's too late. sure, we caught this suspect, but isn't it time to focus on our blurry priorities? i'm jane velez-mitchell, and that's my issue.

3:49 pm
alone come in and out of new york city alone. look at the numbers, folks. $28 billion was spent just from tourists alone in new york city last year. about $5 billion of that was spent in times square. you have all the shops, the restaurants, the hotels, the theaters in times square. so that area particularly in the city really, really relies on tourists. so there was a lot of concern tourists would flee the area. we went down there to find out. take a listelisten. jifs worried i would have to do a lot of spin this week because people would be scared and we'd have to do what we did after 9/11 when you had the whole broadway community come here and you had mayor giuliani say come see a broadway show. i called the head of the broadway organization and also the hotel general managers and all said business is normal. >> and i think i just lost you,

4:02 pm
the new rules require that that happen at a two-hour interval. if airlines are notified that somebody has been added as a risk to the no-fly list. >> a law enforcement source with knowledge of this sdregs into the failed times square bombing tells our sister network found an interesting train event receipt. it shows faisal shahzad got on a train for new york bound for connecticut 30 minutes after allegedly parking that car bomb. the source says investigators believe he ran to catch the train, which pulled out around 7:00 or 7:15 local time saturday. we also learned today that shahzad seemed to know that investigators were closing in on him. sources tell our sister network cnn that when he was removed from the plane, shahzad said from law enforcement, i was expecting are you, are you nypd or fbi? shahzad is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass instruction, acts of terrorism, transcending national boundaries and three other counts in connection with that
