and he didn't shake sure you keep that center of the country bright red, strong conservative right here in kansas. >> now, rick santorum supporters have calling for newt gingrich to get out of the race. he is not. but,. [speaking french] >> carl cammeron is live for us tonight. no slam dunk here for anybody and nobody has left the race. >> no. but mitt romney did put a little bit more distance between himself and his rivals and he won the majority of the states and the majority. delegates. so, he is still the frontrunner and the national poll, the national gallup track shows that he is up well into the double digits.
7:06 pm
has he got some momentum. newt gingrich has some serious pressure. rick santorum and the super pac that backs santorum are sort of leading it. they are suggesting that it's time for the former house speaker to get out of race because his presence in it in the santorum view and other republicans worried about splitting the conservative base of the party think that gingrich is making it harder for santorum to really stand up and challenge mitt romney. the thinking being the two of them divide tea party and self-described very conservative republicans and make it harder to topple mr. romney. lots of pressure on gingrich who just says mr. santorum maybe you should be the one to bail out even though santorum has seven wins to gingrich's two. and of course mitt romney has won 13 states. >> shepard: mitt romney has raised a lot of then. they just announced last month they raked in $11 million. what does it tell us. >> just another category in which he has got an advantage. as the campaign goes into the rest of march it slows down a little bit. there is never going to be another day with as many delegates or states at stake as super tuesday.
7:07 pm
organization and money really matter. as a consequence raised $11.5 million last month. that's more than his rivals raised. another metric, another example of his ability to continue to keep a large established organized campaign chugging forward. there you see it outraising santorum who raised $9 million. with that organization, romney and momentum from these recent wins, romney can head out across the states where he might have a problem, you know, next, kansas this weekend followed by alabama and mississippi next tuesday. these are states in the south and central part of the country where mitt romney may not be as popular as some of the places he has won thus far. the momentum and money and organization it's going to be tough for his rivals to catch him. >> shepard: sure will. carl cammeron live in boston tonight. the president today addressed what could be a very big issue come november. gas prices as if you hadn't noticed, the price at the pump is the highest ever for this time of year. in a speech in north carolina the president urged americans to embrace more fuel efficient

[explosion] >> shepard: to stop syria's leader to quit murdering men women and children. thousands and thousands of people are dead. hours ago top members of the u.s. military answered questions about the possible military options that are on the table. that's all ahead from the journalists of fox news on a hump day fox report. look! the phillips' lady!

7:12 pm
fly zone to surveillance to air lifts. but we're told at this moment military officials have not yet briefed president obama on those options. this news comes from the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff general martin dempsy, he and the defense secretary leon panetta testified on capitol hill today about the situation inside syria. it is a full blown disaster. the country's leader bashar assad has been murdering his citizens by the tens of thousands.

7:13 pm
the charge. the most vocal supporter for u.s. forces getting involved in the fight. but tonight the defense secretary leon panetta told him we cannot just attack syria by ourselves. >> the united states has a clear, national security interest in stopping the slaughter in syria and forcing assad to leave power. we all wish there was a clear and unambiguous way forward to directly influence the events in syria. and, unfortunately, that is not the case. that is not an excuse. that is reality. >> and in the words of the defense secretary, this terrible situation has no simple answers. jennifer griffin with the news at the white house tonight. i should say at the pentagon. jennifer, the chairman of the joint chiefs pointed out today this isn't libya. libyans air defenses were nothing compared to what syria has. >> that's right. syrians air defenses, for instance, are five times for sophisticated than libya's and are located in populace
7:14 pm
neighbors. if the u.s. unleashed its military power that could mean scores of unintended deaths. >> i want to be clear. we can do anything. the question is so it's not about can we do it. it's should we do it and what are the opportunity costs elsewhere and what are the risks? >> one of the reasons to get involved is that syria has chemical weapons. the largest stockpile in the middle east. 10 times larger we're told than libya had. >> shepard: panetta seemed reluctant to get the military involved despite what's happening elsewhere. >> very reluctant and you also had senator john mccain on capitol hill today goading him, prodding him saying you were the chief of staff under president clinton when you used the military for humanitarian reasons in bosnia. >> what doesn't make sense is to make unilateral action at this point. as secretary of defense, before i recommend that we put our sons and daughters in
7:15 pm
uniform in harm's way, i have got to make very sure that we know what the mission is is. i have got to make very sure that we know whether we can achieve that mission at what price. and whether or not it will make marries better -- matters better or worse. >> today the president met with the new libyan head of state as the joint chiefs tried to explain on capitol hill how syria is different from syria, shepard? >> shepard: jennifer griffin from the pentagon tonight. thanks. american democracy workers who finally got out of egypt last week are saying thank you. among them sam la hood, the son-in-law of the transportation secretary raleigh lahood. sam the one in the far left in this picture. egyptians accuse the americans working there illegally and refuse to let them reeve the country for days and weeks. they camped out at the united states embassy for more than a month actually. egypt let them go after their organization paid almost $5 million. that was bailed as they called it some of those workers

7:31 pm
50 that is to 1.06 a barrel. it comes as -- 106 a barrel. it comes as lawmakers who or what is to blame for skyrocketing cost at the pump. oil industry leaders appeared on capitol hill this morning to weigh in on what's become a big issue in d.c. campaign trail. many argue the white house should could more to increase oil production here at home. but democrats say the real problem is the turmoil in the middle east and wall street speculators who drive up the prices. the cost of crude oil has risen more than $30 since october when it was trading around 75 bucks a barrel. meantime a.a.a. reports the average cost of a gallon of gas held steady today. 3.76, 20 cents higher than it was a month ago. jim angle on. >> hello, shep. congress tackled those high gas prices today there were two entirely different views of the problem and its
7:32 pm
solutions. the president toured a factory that makes trucks using natural gas for fuel only alternatives can help us because we produce too little oil to effect the global price. anybody who tells you otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about or they are not telling the truth. >> no matter how much we drill our gasoline prices are going to rise if there is a crisis in the middle east. labor unrest in nigeria. >> many others, however, flatly dispute that one expert says high prices are a result of vastly increased demand overseas which has not been matched by increased supply. the reason is is a mix of veracious relentless oil demand growth in fast growing asia and the middle east on the one hand and disappointingly small net oil production growth on the other. >> now, the president, however, insists more supply isn't the answer, we must lower demand instead by investing in new technologies, but that will take a long time
7:33 pm
and the oil industry asks if democrats think supply doesn't matter, why do they keep looking for it? it is others that are called on the saudis to produce more. others who have called on other sources such as the brazilians and yet others who recognize supply matters by calling for release from the strategic petroleum reserve in fact, it was the president who encouraged the saudis and brazil to produce more oil. mr. obama clearly sees the political danger in high prices but not enough to help american firms produce more as well. shep? >> shepard: jim angle in the d.c. newsroom tonight. thanks there is a new warning now that our enemies want to take out the united states using our own technology. that's the word from the head of the fbi who testified before congress today over the threat of cyber terrorism. >> the country steals those secrets that will enable that country to overwhelm us in a -- on the field of battle some place, that is something
7:34 pm
that is a threat and ultimately may be a more serious threat. >> shepard: the director told lawmakers that terrorists or hostile nations for that matter could try to hack into critical computer systems in order to cripple our military. in today's testimony came with an increased sense of you are general sismt in fact, only hours later the director muller and other officials held a top secret briefing at the senate on that growing cyber threat. catherine herridge with the news live in washington tonight. what do we know about, this i don't know, top secret meeting? >> well, that's right, shepard. tonight a major cyber briefing for the entire senate behind closed doors with the chairman of the joint chiefs dempsy, janet napolitano, the head of the security agency keith alexander and fbi director robert muller. earliered in the today describing why rogue nations and terrorists are tapping into cybers 1-2 punch. >> on the one hand developing new technology for any future conflict or on the other hand
7:35 pm
enabling them to disable our technology in a time of war. >> fox news was told tonight's senate briefing will explain the administration's response to a major cyber event, shep. >> during the fbi director's testimony, there was more dancing around the issue of killing americans. the american government killing american citizens. a new thing. >> that's right. fbi director muriel was asked twice by republic congressman kevin yoder where the criteria in a chicago speech monday for the quote lawful targeted killing of americans applied on u.s. soil. both times muller deflected to holder. >> thinking about the three part test that he mentioned, does that only apply to u.s. citizen that's overseas or does that apply to u.s. citizen that's here? >> i would have to go back. i'm not certain whether that was addressed or not. i'm going to defer that to others in the department of justice. >> constitutional law professor jonathan writes in
7:36 pm
foreign policy magazine today, quote: holder's new definition of due process was perfectly or wellian. what is he describing is the model of presidency that would have made richard nixon pleasure. spokesperson said it was pretty straightforward the legal framework holder laid out applies to citizens outside of this country. holder will testify on the hill tomorrow. >> shepard: kill first, justify later. catherine herridge in washington. a fire left a man trapped inside a burning car. two police officers put their own lives on the line to pull him out. how the city honored their bravery coming up. when watching your kid's hockey game, try not to point a laser in the opposing goalie's eyes. daddy is in trouble. that's next. ♪
