republican man to get the government's fiscal house in order. >> we think we owe the american people a balanced budget. >> harris: to do that, congressman paul ryan wants to scrap one of president obama's biggest first term accomplishments. >> our budget does promote repealing obamacare. >> harris: the showdown over spending your tax dollars. and caretakers and customers at a big cat reserve left in shock after someone apparently left the gate open and a 500-pound lion walked right out and killed this woman. tonight, cat haven reopening for business. i'm harris falkner. new defense secretary chuck hagel getting a crash course in a rocky relationship with afghanistan. his first official visit to the region and what a welcome from afghanistan's president hamid karzai. he's accusing our country of cooperating with the enemy to spread chaos across this
country. just a little context for you here, and a reminder, not that you need it, we lost 2,170 american lives and more than 540 billion dollars spent over a decade trying to make life better for afghans with the taliban targeting any kind of help or hope we could give them during the war. the taliban of course killed countless people and previously provided safe haven for osama bin laden and today afghan president saying our military is working with the taliban. it appeared we might learn exactly why he said that. we've known president karzai to be rather unpredictable in the past. secretary hagel was supposed to hold a joint news conference today with the afghan leader, but then it was canceled for what were said to be security reasons. the two did meet, we're told, in private. peter doocy now with the news from washington. peter? >> reporter: harris, afghan president hamid karzai made a sensational accusation against the united states this weekend telling a television audience
he thinks the americans and the taliban have been coordinating terror attacks against civilians as recently as this week intending to show civilians how quickly the security situation on the ground will deteriorate after most u.s. troops have left the country the end of next year. >> they are trying to frighten us into thinking it was foreigners, were not in afghanistan we would face these sort of incidents. >> reporter: president karzai and visiting defense secretary chuck hagel canceled a joint press conference for security reasons, but the two met anyway and hagel says he told the afghan president his claims are false. >> i told the president it was not true, that the united states was unilaterally working with the talib-- that the states wasn't unilaterally working with the that be. >> and senator john bolton
gave a similar explanation. >> as internal politics to say that the taliban and the united states are cooperating, but i think it's part of president karzai's game, he wants to look independent of the united states and independent of the taliban. >> secretary hagel's swing through afghanistan is nearly done and he's expected back in washington tomorrow afternoon, harris. >> harris: peter, thank you. we are in the final stretch, less than two days away now from the conclave to elect a new pope. cardinals celebrating mass across rome, some in private chapels and others in eternal cities and basilicas, many praying for spiritual guidance before they have to make their final decision, the conclave, set to begin on tuesday. they'll file into the sistene chapel that afternoon for their secret anonymous balloting and they'll vote until someone receives a two-thirds majority or 77 votes to become the next pope. earlier today in st. peters square it was relatively quiet the second sunday in a row
with no pope appearing at the windows of the papal apartments to carry out the traditional weekly blessing. a few tourists snapping photos and taking in the mood. >> you can't really tell, they're just milling around and walking around, but you can tell there's an energy there. >> and an energy and a big decision to come. amy kellogg is live for us in rome tonight, amy? >> hi, harris. well, today was the probably the last day to get up close with the cardinals before they hole up in conclave. we caught up with tim dolan in new york as he was giving mass on the outskirts of rome today. he said earlier in the week the cardinals were not ready to vote and now they are and he is eeg tower gager to get it with. >> i'm so happy to be here, i'm ready to get to work and get a new pope. i'm running out of socks.
>> cardinal sean o'mally of boston is gaining considerable traction with them. and he laughed off suggestions he could be the next pope saying he planned to wear the brown of his order for a lifetime. and here is what he had to say about the conclave. >> let us pray that the holy spirit to choose a new pope who will confirm us in our faith and-- >> meanwhile, we got a peek inside the sistene chapel this weekend, it's being transformed into a voting place for the cardinals. workmen have been running around michelangelo's famed painting, and this is rome's rapt suspense waiting for the conclave and this jeweler hoping he'll be lucky enough to make the pontiff's new coat
of arms and among the speculation, the italian papers are talking about two camps in terms of the electors, not so much liberals versus conservatives, but those who are more spiritual, philosophical and those who are interested in keeping the status quo in terms of the vatican bureaucracy, harris. >> harris: interesting, another shift. we've seen a few the past few days, we know there was a calling for someone to be much more evangelical as well and now we'd lead up with now a new twist. amy kellogg, thank you very much. now let's go to washington and the next stage in the ongoing battle over government spending of our tax dollars. former nominee and budget house committee chairman paul ryan with a new plan to balance the ballooning budget among the billions of proposed cuts he will make public one of the largest and most controversial, will be appealing obamacare. he yes, that's the deal. 's a republican from wisconsin and he says, we cannot afford obamacare.
the whole thing has to go, ryan talking about it today with chris wallace on fox news sunday. >> we don't think health care's going to be improved in this country. we think it's going to look very ugly over the next couple of years. and that's why we're going to propose replacing obamacare with patient centered health care with a better health care system for everybody, for poor the people in the states, for medicare. >> and steve centanni with the news live for us in washington. steve, we have seen congressman ryan make a the lot of budget proposals and he's known for this on the hill. what about this latest one? what's in it? >> well, balancing the budget by 5 trillion dollars. and assumes obamacare and takes in fiscal cliff tax increases that went into effect and 715 billion dollars to cuts to medicare. here is the congressman. >> we think we owe the american people a balanced budget and we want to respect
hard working taxpayers and we think we have a responsible plan to balance the budget. the reason we do a balanced budget not simply the numbers and it adds up. it leads to a healthy economy that creates jobs. >> and ryan is promoting what he calls pro growth tax reforms to bring all the rates down, harris. >> harris: we've been reporting, also, steve, what some in the media are calling the president's charm offensive, rather, to try to win over republicans. what's his next move that we know about? >> well, he goes to capitol hill to meet with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. last week, as you know, he had dinner with a dozen democrats, and lunch with paul ryan. some are applauding him and some are taking a wait and see attitude and some say he needs to go farther. >> now, the president reached out more broad had i to republicans which i think is a good thing. ultimatel ultimately, of course, everybody needs to compromise. the president needs to reach out not just to republicans, but to democrats and to ensure
that he gives them the political cover to do, frankly, what most of them know needs to be done in terms of the need for us to deal with these very important, but unsustained one-time programs. >> reporter: on tuesday, wednesday and thursday of this week, the president goes to capitol hill for several meetings with democrats and republicans from both houses of congress. harris? >> steve centanni, thank you very much. former republican florida governor jeb bush opening up about growing speculation over a possible white house run in 2016. and he was speaking today on fox news sunday. governor bush says it's a little early to announce a candidacy just three months after the last election and he also downplayed concerns about the negative public opinion polls of the past bush presidency. >> i don't think there's any bush baggage at all. i'm proud of my brother, proud of his accomplishments, i love my dad, if i decide to run for president, not something in my dna that compels me, it would be that the right thing for my
family and the conditions are right and i have something to offer. >> harris: he we know jeb bush flirted running for president in 2008 and 2012, but declined both seems. >> harris: tiger woods has done it and actually looking like the old tiger woods and a ramp up to the masters next month. today a little while ago he won the cadillac championship at doral. and it was tight down to the end and i was watching with the sound down for a while. closing with a one under par 71, in the final round and more on tiger's win when pete joins us with sports. right now, a tough scene for first responders and investigators who do the tough work, finding out exactly why and how this happened. eight teenagers from the same town in one s.u.v., two of them survive, six of them are dead tonight. we're learning their vehicle veered off the road somehow,

hijackers used to bring their planes into the world trade cent center. >> harris: schumer saying, now is not the time for less vigilance. the tsa release as state. taking novelty bats and sporting equipment off the prohibited items list will allow transportation security officers to better focus their attention on higher threat items and the final decision rests with the tsa.... and new jersey's newark liberty airport after what we told thank you week,'s upset about reports that an undercover federal agent managed to sneak a fake bomb inside his pants, past two security check points. the fallout, meantime, continues from that security breach as a whistleblower now is opening up with shocking representations about inept employees, useless policies
and supervisors asleep at the wheel. arthel, it makes it look extremely dangerous. >> it sounds unbelievable. according to the whistleblower, things are really bad. in an article in the new york post, the former screener wasn't surprised by february's snn incident you reported on and charged with the task keeping americans safe. it's not a matter of if a terrorist boards a plane, but when. and screens routinely failed to meet tsa standards and employees not needing a high school diploma to get hired and half hour bathroom breaks during work and a culture of lazeness. officials maintain that despite some problems, the system has worked. >> and the terrorists to try to get on the planes because we've not had anyone get on a plane successfully with explosive twices in the united states in the last 11 1/2 years, something is working, but it has to be improved.
>> reporter: now, we've reached out to the tsa for comment and no response yet. for the patdowns that some flyers find offensive, the former screener calls them ridiculous, saying it can't find anything using the back of your hand over certain areas of the body, harris. >> harris: you know, one of the things i thought was startling and you and i were talking about this in the news room, sometimes cameras are put up and they feel they have to do something because they're watched and they're not really searching anything. >> and according, some of those supervisors are blinking indeed. as one of the busiest airports with about 1400 tsa employees, newark has seen its fair share of incidents over the years. to name a few, in october of 2012, 25 employees were fired and 19 suspended for improperly screening baggage. in june of 2012, 18 were fired for literally sleeping on the job and in january, 2010, a
terminal was shut down for six hours after a man jumped under a security rope unnoticed by the tsa and a 2012 investigation by the department of homeland security found the tsa took corrective action for security breaches at newark 42% of the time. who can forget that one of the hijacked flights on september 11th flew out of newark. united airlines flight 93 which crashed in shanksville, pennsylvania, killing the passenger and crew members on board, harris. >> harris: yeah, we'll never forget that. thank you. a couple murdered inside their home, their car stolen and now police say another person believed to be in the house at the time of the killings is missing. the latest details of this story as police search for who they call a killer on the loose.

lives of seven people, including five children. our first stop on this fox trip across america. kentucky, neighbors first saw smoke early in the morning and called 911. >> flames coming out of the window, smoke and i called them, and it's too late by then. >> harris: inside that home, a man, his girlfriend. her three children and two other children who had spent the night for a sleepover. >> this whole road that we live on, real close together: we know each other, it's just a tragedy. >> harris: family members saying the children were very young, ten months old to three years old. arson investigators working to find a cause and say they don't see any signs of foul play. washington, a small plane hits a house outside seattle. the pilot died at the scene, his nephew hurt, taken to a hospital. two people were inside the home at the time. they're okay. people blocks away heard it.
>> sounded like a gunshot, really. it sounded like at first someone was shooting and when i heard that sound i kind of looked out the window and that's when i saw the part in front of the the house. >> harris: it's not clear why the plane crashed, but the pilot sent a distress call at that the engine failed moments before. connecticut, a group of cyclists headed for the nation's capital hoping to encourage congress to pass tougher gun control laws. called team 26. each psychist representing one of the victims of the sandy hook he elementary school shooting. one rider lost his daughter in that tragedy. >> i feel for those who have not experienced such a lost to look deep into their hearts and do what they think cannot be done. >> and their goal, capitol hill arriving tuesday. >> harris: that's a fox watch across america. your bottom line probably getting a bit of a boost if you have anything invested in the markets. the dow hitting a high last

>> harris: it sounds like a preventible measure, but how is it working to actually practice it? >> well, most of dui convicts or i'm sorry, dwi convicts are young males and many are saying it's not going to prevent the sale of alcohol to them by critics. >> you ask private industry to now be an enforcer of a law and, you know, i'd say probably ten times out of ten there will be little to no enforcement of that so it's just not going be to be practical. >> reporter: one other thing, adds in the same way offenders find ways to duck out of using their ignition locks, they find ways to get their hands on alcohol. it's just too easy to circumvent, they say and that's really going to be the problem. they want to get it, they get it. simple as that, harris. >> harris: if you look at history of the country, we've battled over alcohol sales before not having to do with car wrecks of course, but you know, it is part of our
history. people do get their hands on things anyway. >> reporter: yeah, that's certainly very much the case, but they're hoping at least there'll be somebody responsible in the private sector being for example, those who do sell liquor who make a attempt not to sell alcohol to those they know they shouldn't. >> harris: we'll see what happens there. dominic di-natale, thank you very much. a cheating scandal rocking one university in the country. why harvard administrators went too far and even violating the privacy of some of the school's deans. and the proud american farmer, unformtunatel unfortunately, many are struggling. in one part of the country business is booming not because of the crops, but what's under them.
