perhaps most silent and only to listen to the work that you've already made is really where all of the core ideas come from. one work is the mother of the next. ♪ new video from inside a mosque during a suicide bombing. the violent escalating in yemen so quickly, the u.s. is pulling out the last of its military forces. new information about the machete attack in the new orleans airport. the weapons the suspect had hidden that he didn't even get to. a republican senator about to make it official. he's getting into the race in 2016. when ted cruz is expected to announce his he is running for
president. we are getting a better picture this morning that the exact moment that terror broke out the yemen mosque that killed dozens of people. >> that is new video coming to us from inside the mosque. now, this was one of the twin bomb attacks on two mosques friday. 137 people were killed in all. more than 350 wounded. the situation so perilous there the u.s. has pulled its remaining military forces out of yemen. >> the state department saying all u.s. personnel in yemen have been temporarily relocated but it insists washington will continual to actively monitor terrorist threats emanating from yemen and to take action to disrupt continuing, immeant threats from yemen. jomana karadsheh is with us
right now. the big concern is how isis and al qaeda in yemen may exploit the chaos there, particularly when, we think, there aren't as many people there to monitor what is happening. help us understand what that challenge is. >> reporter: well, absolutely. that is the main concern, christi, you are right. the situation in yemen has been steadily deteriorating. as you mentioned, these are the last of the u.s. forces that were based there. special operation forces. prior to that last month, the u.s. embassy shutting down and pulling out all personnel. so there has been this concern about this limited nonexistent perhaps u.s. presence on the ground there. how it's going to impact the fight against terrorism there in yemen, and also counterterrorism operations and intelligence gathering that is very important as the u.s. is pointing out that it will continue to monitor this situation and it does have the
capabilities, it says, in the area, ready to respond to any terror threat. this country has been home for one of al qaeda's top and most dangerous franchises in the world, al qaeda and arabian peninsula aqap. now there are concerns that isis may be gaining ground in that country. so a lot of concerns, especially also with the u.s., christi, losing its main ally there. the government of president haddy who the rebels pushed him out the infant few montlast few. there is no government that controls yemen right now and this is the concern and the perfect environment, as we have seen extremist and jihadi groups in other countries with this instability to gain more ground and, of course, now rising
concerns and fears of the possibility of a civil war in that country. >> jomana karadsheh, thank you so much. tunisia's president says a third attacker took part in the national museum. >> we have new surveillance video to show you inside that museum. a man walking down the stairs and bumps into em thm lm athem they let him go. they then killed 23 people. "the washington post" saying they offendered off an elite squad of the police for nearly two hours and finally killed when one of their grenades failed to explode and the police were able to shoot them easement joining us is retired lieutenant general mark hurtling. let's start talking about tunisia here. last night the tunisiian president suggested in a french
magazine as many as 10,000 young jihadists in tunisia and they have stopped 5,000 to 6,000 from leaving. is it reasonable to expect the government would be able to monitor 5,000 to 6,000 people? >> this is more of a political action by the members of the government of tunisia to try and get calm back in the country. as you know, this is a terrific country for tourists. for anyone who has been there, it is a beautiful country. he is just trying to show folks that they have got this under control. they have arrested 20 people, mostly relatives of some of the ones that conducted the assault the other day, and i think they are trying to show that the security forces are trying to maintain calm in this country under this threat. >> is there a threat of this government, like we have seen in yemen, we have seen in libya
being overtaken as there is a battle between these jihadist groups? >> not in tunisia, victor. i think this is a pretty stable government from all of the sources i had when i was commanding in europe, they were the most advanced in terms of bringing about a constitutional regime. their constitutional republic is one of the strongest in all of africa. they have a thing called the code of personal status which gives a great deal of leeway in terms of freedoms and one of the things that many of the jihadis might be fighting against as trying to re-create the islamic state we have seen in other countries. so this is a democratic reforming government. it's very advanced and i don't think you're going to see the same kind of failure that you're seeing in some of the other countries like yemen. the state department saying, they are continuing to actively monitor the terrorist threats
there. the u.s. staff temporarily relocated and monitor threats in yemen and take action to disrupt continuing imminent threats to the u.s. with the evacuated u.s. embassy in yemen and with the last of the military forces out, how does that happen? how do they continue to monitor and how can they effectively respond? >> it doesn't happen very well, victor. what you have, when you have a state department and an embassy team in a country, you have elements of that team that the military coordinates with. the human intelligence and signals intelligence, but also source intelligence within a country, some of that comes from the country team within the embassy and some of it comes from the military. when the embassy left, they took that country team with them. the military is blind. we don't have a government to
deal with and, of course, when their president was in office we were dealing with members of his cabinet to get additional information when he pardon. there is no government to work with, so it's very difficult to get intelligence that is needed to strike targets. so, yes, we are monitoring, but, truthfully you're monitoring information that is coming in in very low sources, very dribs and drabs and nothing you would get when you had a normal intelligence operation. >> lots of challenges moving forward. general mark hurtling, thank you very much r the airport attacker on friday night tuns out was armed with more than just a mache machete. >> they say the suspect richard white had molotov cocktails and
smoke bombs in his car. they say he suffered from some type of mental illness. >> he died of wounds yesterday he suffered in that onslaught. tom fuentes is joining us now. you look at the story and you know anyone with a right mind wouldn't go into an airport with a machete and think he is going to come out and get more ammunition that he had left in his car. what is the takeaway from this whole thing for you? >> i think the takeaway is just how severe his mental illness was, and, you know, we have these checkpoints in airports for a reason and in a way, they worked. even though the tsa guards are not armed, there are armed police officers right at the end of all of these checkpoints who can respond. we had this in the los angeles airport a couple of years ago where a l.a. police officer shot the person trying to -- that had already shot tsa guards and run through the checkpoint. now have this guy run through the checkpoint with a machete.
but, again, a uniformed police officer saves the day and stops him from getting any further or from actually using the machete against the one female tsa guard that he was chasing. >> do you think that people who are not in uniform should also be armed? maybe there should be officers who are not in close sight, in proximity there as well? >> a good question how many police officers they have and it should be a police officer. police officers get the right kind of training in firearms in shoot and don't shoot making judgment. it's not feasible or practical in any way to arm the thousands of tsa individuals and you have the possibility that a mentally deranged person could wrestle the gun away from one of them. even though arriving at the airport unarmed, then becomes armed. you have that issue. yes, possibly having more police
officers, plain clothes and uniform at airport checkpoints or nearby checkpoints is probably a great idea. >> a good thing in this case is that they all did their job and saved lives for sure. tom fuentes, always appreciate your perspective. thank you. >> you're welcome. the term flip-flopped is used in politics a lot but usually between democrats and republicans across that line. now president obama is accusing of president benjamin netanyahu of flip-flopping on his view on palestinian statehood. i see a campaign that might be around this. ted cruz is planning to make his run for the white house official in an announcement tomorrow. oh, what are we starting here? >> starting the run toward the white house. no sudden movements.

israeli prime minister bandage anyo benjamin netanyahu will remain in power. now we are hearing president obama's thoughts for that for the first time. >> in an intuf with "t. he has flip-flopped saying he believes in palestinian statehood now. >> well, we take him at his word when he said that it wouldn't happen during his prime ministership and why we have to evaluate what other options are available to make sure that we don't see a chaotic situation in the region. >> joining us now from the white house is cnn corporate area r
correspondent erin mcpike. whether the prime minister was being true to israeli's ideals. >> reporter: president obama spoke to benjamin netanyahu on thursday and he explained more about that conversation with his interview with out the huffington post." listen here. >> we indicated that that kind of rhetoric was contrary to what is the best of israeli's traditions, that although israeli was founded based on the historic jewish home land and the need to have a jewish home land, israeli democracy has been premised on everybody in the country being treated and equally and fairly. i think that is what is best about israeli democracy.
>> reporter: part of that rhetoric he referring to there is before the election netanyahu had expressed worry about arab israelis going to the polls in droves. >> the white house reassessing this relationship. any indication this reassessment will result in substantive shift for the relationship? >> reporter: victor, that is hard to say. obviously, the president's relationship with netanyahu has really been affected by these iran nuclear negotiations, but you see the republicans in congress are really backing netanyahu on this one. they also say that this deal with iran could be a very bad deal, but the president obama is forging ahead with this and they hope they can get something done even though netanyahu is trying to stand in the way of it. >> erin mcpike, at the white house, thank you. the middle east will be just one of the pressing issues for

i.d. was questionable. >> shortly after johnson left, this viral video shows the beverage control agents arresting him as blood is dripping from his face. he claims police brutality and racism. >> the statement issued by the pub's management says comments calling johnson belligerent are, quote, patently untrue. police, as we know, are still investigating this case. the world of mexican wrestling is in mourning after the tragic death after star fighter. we want to warn you the video you're about to see is pretty disturbing. >> want to give awe heads-up here. the fighter whose real name was pedro agualo jr. died in the hospital yesterday after being kicked in the ring. in the video, you see him here slumped against the ropes after the kick. the fighter was rushed to a nearby hospital but doctors were not able to revive him.

♪ tomorrow, police are releasing their findings in a criminal investigation of an alleged gang rape at the university of virginia. now, a student known at jackie, remember, told "rolling stone" magazine she was attacked at a fraternity party. discrepancies in her story emerged and caused "rolling stone" to apologize for the article. here is sarah gannon who is
following this. >> reporter: we may finally learn what really happened to the woman named jackie whose story in "rolling stone" caught attention last fall. in the article, a university of virginia student named jackie claimed she was brutally raped by seven men during a fraternity party. university officials who acknowledge they did know some of the details of jackie's story months before "rolling stone" article published, they asked the police to launch an criminal investigation. long before the criminal investigation concluded, a few important things happened. first, "rolling stone" apologized for its reporting when it became clear there were discrepancies in the woman's account. second, friends of jackie told cnn they were with her that night and she told a different story of what happened. they also showed us e-mails and text messages that appeared to show that jackie had fabricated
the man who she said orchestrated her rape. and police cleared the fraternity where jackie said the alleged rape had happened. but police have always left open this possibility that jackie was raped somewhere else or on different night. now it's important to remember that the police investigation is separate from the university of virginia's internal investigation into whether they handled jackie's claim and other reports of sexual assaults correctly. >> sarah, thank you so much. joining us now is cnn's center media corinth brian se stelter. if everything we hear from police tomorrow is -- it refutes what the magazine reported, what are the ramifications for "rolling stone"? >> there could be editorial changes at the magazine. there could be editors or fact checkers or other people who
would be looking for new work. we know there has been an investigation going on for "rolling stone" by columbia university. "rolling stone" reached out to columbia's journalism school in december and asked them to conduct a thorough review what went wrong with this story. that investigation is going on more than three months now and expected to wrap up soon, probably weeks after this press conference that is happening tomorrow. first, we will hear the police's account of what happened and then hear the magazine's fact checkers account of what happened. all throughout this, victor, one of the mysteries to me is where is the reporter or the writer who actually interviewed jackie, who interviewed these other people, but never reached out to the alleged rapists? she has always remained silent. the writer has never responded to interview requests and so we have never heard her side of the story, nor have we heard anything from jackie since this became a national controversy back in december.
i think the press conference tomorrow maybe the trauma that jackie experienced. jackie has horrific memories of what happened her in 2012. the entire wasn't entirely wrong but maybe exaggerate rated or embellished in some way. >> there has been an apology and "rolling stone" has accepted responsibility. has there been any explanation of why there is a full retraction? >> they say because they are continuing to have this columbia review going on and ordered up by the publisher of the magazine and it went over the head of the top editors there like will dana. i checked in with will and he said we think the columbia review will be done soon and don't know anything more than that. they say they are in the dark like the rest of us are. it was a terrible journalistic blow for "rolling stone" at the time and for them to publish the
findings of this review might be the first step toward regaining credibility. reports of hazing, racist chants, sexual assaults have really become the ugly face of college fraternities the past few weeks. sigma alpha epsilon's chant in the university of oklahoma may be the biggest scandal just this week. we covered the penn state fraternity that allegedly used a facebook account to have photos of some who appeared to be asleep or passed out. and other activity at fraternities have a lot of people wondering if the greek system itself is the problem. clearly we want to point out these acts are not representative of all fraternities by any means. but, paige, do you think that the concept of greek life is in trouble on college campuses? >> i think so. what we have to be concerned about here is not just public
perception or insensitivity but criminal actions. in the real world, outside of the greek system, outside of these colleges, if there is an allegation of criminal conduct it's going to be investigated first by law enforcement. and that is not what is happening here. they try to take these students, greek organizations, and nongreek students and give them an opportunity to resolve these things within the school. and that is not appropriate. we end up in situations like we have with "the rolling stone" article which i think should have first been investigated by law enforcement way before it was reported and way before we had this crisis. >> it's not unusual for someone who allegedly is a victim of sexual assault to not want to go to police. so in "the rolling stone" case when we were talking to brian about consequences, are there possible legal consequences for "rolling stone"? >> i think absolutely. it's very difficult to bring a defamation lawsuit against a media outlet like "rolling
stone" cnn, anyone, unless you can show that they literally went into this with an agenda to report something false. and i think this particular reporter made it clear that she was looking for the right fraternity, the right school where the story would fit and maybe her message is important. obviously, it's important. but to use this story to make it fit her article, i think, was inappropriate without checking all of the facts and without doing the kind of interviews that a true legal criminal investigation would have done. >> scandals continue. i'm kind of wondering how can schools defend fraternities and should they? >> i think it is difficult but if you're a school sanctioned organization like a fraternity, you have to follow their rules. what we have seen recently with martes, johnson i think has something to do with this. there have been many complaints about the use of alcohol and fraternity on campus and off campus. you've seen the abc, alcohol
control folks being more aggressive. perhaps instead of looking outside of the campus, look inside the campus. send these folks into the fraternities and find out how much drinking is going on. for the most part, it is illegal for these folks who are under age. >> great point. page, thank you for your perspective. the eighth week of testimony stards tomorrow in the aaron hernandez case. why the prosecution is trying to show why dirty dancing proves the former nfl star was not in a good place just days before the murder. i am her best friend. i am her ally. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to her current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment like aricept®, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have,
or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, she's been there for me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about adding once-daily namenda xr.

aaron hernandez murder trial. the former football star is accused of killing his friend odin lloyd. prosecutors have no murder weapon so they have been building their case with blocks of circumstantial evidence, including blocks of surveillance tape. as our susan candiotti reports, some of it it is video he would want his fiancee to see. >> reporter: it may not be the most crucial three-minute video of the trial, but it could be one of the most memorable. is it more than dirty dancing? for prosecutors, it suggests motive. aaron hernandez standing against a wall, while a female dance partner does a bump and grind. >> he told me his name was rock. >> two nights before lloyd is killed. that is lloyd wearing a hat. club performer says hernandez asked her to dance and she does
and then his mood suddenly takes a turn. >> he seems irritated and kind of aggressive. he just seemed a lot more agitated, like on edge. >> reporter: another witness also tells jurors he sees hernandez appearing angry inside the club, as lloyd talks to a friend and angry again when hernandez leaves the club. his right arm gesturing in the air. on cross, defense attorneys challenged those witnesses's credibility. attacking a female bar patron and her behavior, saying she bragged about 50 men coming on to her. >> fifty guys grabbed you that night? >> i was exaggerate rating but a lot of men did approach me. >> so that was an exaggerate radiation? >> yes. >> reporter: it's not lear how the aggressive questioning played with the jury, nor how hernandez's behavior may play with his fiancee, jenkins who has not been in court for two weeks. she has been given immunity to
testify for the state. prosecutors played video of a car she ethey say shows the very moment lloyd arrives at the crime scene driven by hernandez. the car leaves three minutes and forty seconds later. another video shows the same car pulling into hernandez's driveway less than a mile away without lloyd. that same afternoon the three defendants are at hernandez's home in his man cave playing with his baby and around his backyard pool. hours later, shaking hands and getting back into the car heading to a rental agency. at about the same time hernandez returns that rental car, a jogger find the bullet-riddled body of odin lloyd at the industrial park. still to come, a ruling on whether the state can play jailhouse conversations with hernandez and including one with his former college teammate mike pouncey, who is on the state's

you know it can be a struggle to keep your a1c down. so imagine ... what if there was a new class of medicine that works differently to lower blood sugar? imagine loving your numbers. introducing once-daily invokana®. it's the first of a new kind of prescription medicine that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in ... and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections,
changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®.

jesus." you have suggested, i understand, the words of the brother of juices are most likely the work of a modern forger. what makes you say that? >> the first thing i would say is dramatic claims require decisive evidence. we simply don't have it here. this box did, indeed, as you stated, app on the antiquities market. and then the words brother of jesus are written in a script that is slightly different from the rest of the inscription. the depth, the clarity is different on those final words. of course, it's those words that would make this potentially significant. >> because? >> in essence, many have suggested that this would, indeed, be the bone box of the brother of jesus. >> how would this be authenticated then? >> it's really difficult to
authenticate these sorts of things. that's why it's especially useful when inscriptions such as this are found on scientific exba e expeditions and this one wasn't on. >> what is the motivate? >> all sorts of motives. one is paramount. that is to say an owuary in and of itself is not worth a great deal of money. even one with an inscription on it is not worth a great deal of money, a few thousands of dollars, maybe tens of thousands of dollars. but, of course, one that refers to the brother of jesus of nazareth could potentially be worth a great deal of money. >> professor rollston, thank you for being with us and appreciate it. >> a pleasure being here. thank you. you can learn so much more about this in the new episode of
