7:19 am
policy, is already in place near nationals park. during a ball game it will cost you $8 for the second and third hours you park on the street. by charging the higher amount for long term parking officials believe it encourages people to park in nearby lots or ride public transit. freeing up more spaces for short term parking. that is why some want this same policy used in other areas of the district. >> when you are around a business like a dry cleaners you want that parking to turn over every 15, 20, 30 minutes you use pricing to do that. >> reporter: the new policy will also allow d dot to raise and lower meter rates, depending on demand. >> you are not going to change the rates every day or hour you will like at them maybe quarterly, a few times a year. >> reporter: along 8th street northeast is a perfect place for this plan to be put to use
7:20 am
for example, during the day when people need to frequent these shops and restaurants price will be lower but then at night when parking is really in demand, the price will rise, and hopefully, reduce that demand. some are worried making parking more expensive at any time could keep customers away. at the big board on 8th street, business is getting better by the month. but customer max is worried the district might be just looking for another way to make money. >> economics for the city makes sense. i mean they write parking violations more than any other city in the country it is absurd to try to just up the ante. >> reporter: councilmember wells says this is not about the $3 million the proposed parking program is projected to raise. it is about charging what that spot is worth. >> we can't manufacture more street side parking but we can make it perform in a way that

the grass pollen count is expected to be very high here for the next several days, if you are suffering it is likely because of the grasses here as we get into the rest of the week. get a little rain later this afternoon maybe that will knock it out, as that might hell ap little bit 62 washington, -- help a little bit, 62 washington. 50s off to the north and west, manassas, dulles, gaithersburg, 59 degrees should be a warmer day than yesterday, high temperatures mid-to upper 70s. and a little more humidity as well winds have shifted now, and they are out of the south. there is a morning look at your satellite radar, and you can see generally we are dry, with a mix of a little sunshine and clouds across the area and of course our frontal system is just out west but i want you to know the motion, generally to the north, and very slowly tracking to the east. i think it will take the better part of the day before that rain shower activity starts to move in here. when it does so, mid-to late
7:33 am
afternoon possibility of scattered showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms and later tonight, the front because it is moving so slowly it will hang up across the area that will give us an enhanced chance of showers overnight tonight, into the first part of tomorrow. we need the rain showers, keep our fingers crossed. we get some in the next few hours. warmer than yesterday. 76, winds out of the south, 10 to 15 miles per hour. clouds tonight showers and storms likely, 62, not going to rain every minute but periods of showers, winds out of the south and west, 10 to 15 wake up tomorrow showers around. by tomorrow afternoon, generally just be cloudy maybe a little late day sun tomorrow and thursday, friday and saturday, absolutely perfect, sunshine low humidity, high temperatures approaching 80. if you are curious about mothers day looks sunny upper 70s. that is a look at your weather let's do traffic and julie. all right tucker on the roads if you are travelling the

7:35 am
of cq senate watch. good to see you. you know it just seems a lot of people, will be in dire states come summer time if something isn't done. how big of a problem is this neil? >> well, these are subsidized student loans. they effect about 7 million borrowers, perhaps, and for those borrowers, federal student loans they are talking about having interest rates double from 3.4 to 6 .8% and it is a problem that i think both sides plan to find a way out of democrats and republicans, but in the meantime it looks like we will have another show down on our hands. >> you do think a compromise will be reached for the good of the people who will be effected by this. >> it is an election year and i would not want to be the politician who is the one, who is targeted with being responsible for raising the interest rates which effectively raises the cost of
7:36 am
college for these students by i heard an average of $1,000 a year >> my goodness. okay. we have been -- you used the term somehow down. we have been -- show down. we have been saying that. is that a fair assessment? >> it looks like that is the way it is headed. just yesterday we learned senate republicans plan to block the bill from going forward, coming up with a procedural vote, today and then back to the drawing board, if the leaders of both partys to go into the back room and negotiate a solution. >> is it possible a simple bill could be passed? it seems a lot of riders are attached to it, which lead to this debate or the fact that it is not just passing sit possible just to say okay just strip it down and pass this thing and help folks effected? how likely is that? >> that is not very likely, to
7:37 am
be perfectly honst, because -- honest, because it costs about $6 billion. one year of extending lower interest rates is going to be scored as costing the federal government, $6 billion or so, which is you know, in this sort of era we are in, we are talking about reducing the federal deficit you can't do without finding savings some place else. >> you spoke to this a little bit, is it worse because it is an election year? are people trying to say we are not going to pass this without attaching this? is it more political. >> certainly it looks that way. president obama and the cabinet, and vice president biden have been going around the country holding events on this subject, and you can tell that is related to the election year, same thing on the republican side, governor romney has already said that he supports making sure the interest rates don't go up but i am not quite sure this would be quite the priority it has
7:38 am
been if it weren't approaching a presidential election. >> what financial offsets are needed to sort of basically allow the freeze, where it is now, 3.4%. >> both of the offsets that have been proposed so far, one of which would -- as you mentioned earlier, reduce funding for a preventative health service fund from a couple years ago and the other one that would essentially eliminate a tax preference for certain companies organized certain ways, beneather one of those look -- neither one of those looks like it is going any where. that is why we will probably see leaders, speaker boehner, majority leader reid from the senate go and try to work out something that will be amenable to both sides. >> primary race is contest today, richard lugger how big in trouble is he this time around? >> looks like he is going to lose his republican primary. i would say if you had to guess
7:39 am
right now with the polls in indiana opening soon, that only tomorrow, we would find out, that richard murdoch will be the republican nominee, for that senate seat and lugger has been in senate for decaderepresented the people of indiana for a very long time but looks like his campaign just ran into a wave that it is not going to be able to overcome. >> editor with cq senate watch appreciate you coming in. >> thank you. 7:39 a.m., a new twist in the penn state sex abuse scandal. coming up why two administrators say charges against them should be dropped. he has been in the hospital for weeks now, but for what? an update on the god father of go go, chuck brown after the break. >> also ahead, cat fights on dynasty were the stuff of

8:02 am
will hang up across the area, probably into first part of tomorrow as well. here is your day planner high temperatures in the mid- to upper 70s warmer than yesterday, scattered showers and storms by 4:00 p.m. >> all right. >> okay. >> let's find out what is happening on the area roadways here is julie wright with that. >> all right you guys, if you are travelling in virginia, we had accident activity at the end of shirlington accident activity moved on to the shoulder. lanes are open. northbound traffic flows on the belt way, here is the deal southbound 270, trying to get past on to the belt way here, georgetown road what i know about the belt way, slow going off the inner loop all the way around toward connecticut avenue and 355 coming off of southbound 270, problem is, not really a problem it should help in future there is a new entrance over to navy medic at greer road, off jones bridge we have all this traffic coming around the belt way, old
8:03 am
georgetown road, all this traffic headed into bethesda to make that left turn on the jones bridge over to greer road and new entrance. police are there it is causing a distraction but that is complicating the commute headed over to navy med. that is a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. >> our top story cia takes down a plot by an al qaeda affiliate to blow up a united states bound plane. >> this may have been able to get past metal detectors at airports it is now being examined at an fbi lab in virginia. melanie is down in the newsroom with the latest melanie. >> tony sources described the unexploded bomb as an intelligence prize explosive experts can pick apart at the same times the a reminder, al qaeda especially in yemen is actively trying to bomb a u.s. airliner. they say this device was designed to be undetectable it didn't contain metal it could have slipped past airport security it is not clear if new
8:04 am
body scanners would have detected it. the bomb was designed to be used in a passengers underwear exploded by what is said to be a refined detonation system it is believed the bomb was developed by the same bomb make whore did the first underwear bomb in 2009 and two others, built into printer cartridges in 2010. we have learnedthe would be bomber. >> the whole system to them is how to beat us at the first level okay. and we are always fighting the last war. at this point our intelligence is great it came from a variety of sources the person is now in u.s. custody he may have been a mule had american passport, the report was he was going the buy his ticket in cash at a counter that is a red flag for anybody. >> cia was tracking the plot in yemen, for a month and the white house was aware. u.s. officials would not say where and when the cia intercepted the bomb but said the suicide bomber had not yet
8:05 am
picked a target and there are no immediate plans to change security procedures at u.s. airports. >> thank you very much. meanwhile, plea from the rockville man being held captive by al qaeda will not be answered in the way his captors hoped the obama administration will not make a deal with ther rest group to secure warren winestein's freedom. president obama is aware of the video released over the weekend that shows winestein begging for his lifement carney says obama is greatly concerned about winestein's safety but it is u.s. policy not to negotiate with terrorists. >> our hearts go out to him and his family we condemn his kidnapping in the strongest terms and call for his immediate release the u.s. government will continue making every effort so see him released safely to his family but cannot and will not negotiate with al qaeda. the 70-year-old was kidnapped 9 months ago in pakistan al qaeda says he will
8:06 am
be freed if the u.s. stops attacks in pakistan, afghanistan, yemen and somalia and releases all al qaeda and taliban prisoners around the world. joining us now to talk more about that case and about the foiled underwear bomb plot is michael green burger founder and director of the center for health and homeland security university of maryland also a professor at university school of law thanks for coming in. there is a lot to talk about. the terrorists know that it isst policy not to negotiate with terrorists, the indication is we are not going to and not going the give into demands what happens now, is there any middle ground that could be reached? >> well, i am not so sure, the terrorist fully understood what he was asking for would not be received by the united states. i think this is an act of desperation from al qaeda, directly to the drone attacks, and i think it is an act of
8:07 am
desperation to try to convince the administration to stop the drone attacks, releasing terrorists in custody is absub. i think this is an indication -- absurd, i think this is an indication of the success the administration has had fighting al qaeda. winestein in doing this, he is a professional it was clear the way he acted the cool and calm way he acted, the picking at things he ate and some use of his words were a signal he knew this was asking for more than could be delivered. >> so, that is an interesting suggestion, so, let's talk about mr. winestein and his predicament, the fact that he probably understands this is too much that his captors are asking for, what do you make of what his appearance in the video, his measured tones is he under duress? >> i think he is somewhat under duress i think he signals that,
8:08 am
in his baring. on the other hand the administration is not going to give up on him. this is the first true sign he is okay. he was kidnapped in august, unheard from, now we see he is in good health, it is a sign to his family he is okay and it is a sign to the administration he is there because they are not going to give in to the terrorist threat does not mean they will not work very hard to get his release. there will be diplomatic avenues gone through. if administration thinks it can't they will try to militarily extract him. >> we know what al qaeda's objectives are, a december traiting a key da is not argute -- a desperate al qaeda is not a good one to deal with. >> his life is in danger, there have in fact in the past few weeks been other diplomats and aids found put in harms way. this is the last gasp by al
8:09 am
qaeda. the closer they get to being defeated, the more desperate they will be the obama administration has done a terrific job on this. as you had in an earlier newscast, finding this underwear bomb before it goes used. >> again we keep seeing these plots foiled how they are being foiled i do not know it is not for us to know but let's talk about that. we have the device and fbi is examining it. how close were we to possibly having a real problem. >> this is a remarkable discovery clearly an international effort i am sure there were many intelligence agencies at work at this, the president thanked the international intelligence community it is another sign we are on top of these kind of threats to the united states it only takes one threat to really cause havoc. >> is this an indication, that
8:10 am
gain, what we are at most risk of is a lone wolf situation if you blow up a plane that is devastating but one individual, suicide attack situation. >> a lone wolf truly acts completely on their own. this person, was given technical expertise, probably by al qaeda on the arabian peninsula. it does demonstrate we absolutely must keep our guard up i think administration has been very good at that. but you know, one small mistake, one thing we don't discover, havoc can be released. we can never sit back, this is truly a great discovery to head off something like this. it may have slipped through airport security they have the device reengineer it and it is necessary, bring up defenses around the airports. >> michael green burger with university of maryland thanks
