10:03 pm
from parents and the school community because so many saw the video and recognized those teens. now to a fox 5 weather alert. let's take a live look outside where it is foggy and misty out there. in fact, it's been coming down or misty all day long and guess what? a big storm is hitting the east coast just as millions are hitting the road for the holiday. fox 5 is tracking all the troubles from the weather center. people are asking, is this going to affect their travel plans? >> it will for the first half of the day. and something else you may have noticed in the corner of your screen. our temperatures actually 61 degrees. that is the warmest it's been all day. that warmer air that is coming through is going to be followed by another line of showers and guess what? maybe a rumble of thunder. i want to show you what's happening here. not much for d.c. we have the drizzle. we still have the fog, but a little later tonight between 3:00 and 6:00. the big batch of moisture over west virginia, that's out ahead of a cold front and that has to come through. if you are planning to leave
10:04 pm
tomorrow morning really early, it could be a problem. let's take a look at our weather headline. the possibility of overnight thunder, again, between 3:00 and 6:00 in the morning. right now, not much to see. we have some flash flood watches and advisories up through eastern pennsylvania. they had a lot of rain. our rain right now is light. earlier today, we had rain on the order of 3/4 of an inch of rain. but that new batch coming was going to add to our totals in the first half of our wednesday. wanted to give you a quick idea of holiday travel. as you can see, you are not going to have any worries. part of the west coast, if you're going to be traveling interstate 5 or flying in and driving somewhere on interstate 5, it's going be wet and in the higher elevations, it will be snowy, certainly in the pacific northwest and that goes down to san francisco. not much to see in the middle part of the country. we'll get most of our weather out by lunchtime. could be a couple showers left over as a last piece of energy comes on through tomorrow
10:05 pm
afternoon. the worst of it, a very, very early this morning and later tonight. if you can hold your travel plans off until later in the day, you'll have a much easier drive. we'll have more on what to expect after the big travel day when i join you upstairs. >> following a developing story out of egypt. a fourth day of bloody demonstrations in cairo and other cities. 29 people have died in demonstrations that started four days ago. also many arrests, including three u.s. students and one from georgetown. laura evans is following that down in the newsroom. >> derrik sweeney is going to georgetown university. this morning, his parents woke up to the unsettling news that their son is now in egyptian jail. i spoke with joy sweeney tonight. she told me she is desperate for anymore information from the state department. the egyptian government showing on television pictures and
10:06 pm
video of derrik sweeney and two other american students. the trio arrested after a demonstration monday. >> he looks absolutely terrified. i have never seen him so deer in the headlights terrified. >> derek's mother spoke with me by phone from her home in missouri. she says derek has been in cairo since august. in the photos you see sweeney with luke gates of indiana university and gregory porter of drexel university. also shown, the cocktails police say they used during the demonstrations. but joy sweeney says in the video, it doesn't look like her son did anything wrong. >> no official charges have been conveyed to us. >> he is accused of being among a group that is throwing cocktails. does that sound like your son? >> not at all. he's bright, he's a good hearted kid. he's fun loving. he is tri lingual. he believes in solving problems
10:07 pm
peacefully. >> he wants her son released and back home with his family. >> i just want to give him a big hug and let him know how much i love him. >> derek interned whose office says they are working on sweeney's release. >> it's really difficult to say what the future holds for these particular students. amnesty international is broadly concerned about the treatment of all of the people in egypt facing human rights violations. >> the state department says it will hold egypt's military leader to his pledges to treat demonstrators properly. however, human rights advocates say the students safety isn't a sure thing. derek is expected to be questioned again in a few hours from now. after that, she has no idea what will happen. >> thank you. only six weeks until the first vote is cast in the 2012 republican presidential primaries and tonight, eight of the candidates hoping to win the nomination went head to head right here in the
10:08 pm
district. the debate was held at dar constitution hall in northwest. babb is there live with the highlights. bob. >> reporter: shaun, the debate just ended. the issues were foreign policy and national security. the candidates were asked about the war against international terrorists and they were also asked about u.s. policy toward afghanistan and pakistan. here are some of the answers. >> this is not time for america to cut and run. we have been in for ten years. we are winding down. the afghan troops are securing their country and the mission is pretty straightforward. and that is to allow the afghan people to have a sovereign nation, not taken over by the taliban. >> we were told, perfectly natural washington assumption. that our killing bin laden in pakistan drove u.s. pakistan relations it a new low. to which my answer is, well it should have. we should be furious.
10:09 pm
>> we do need intelligence gathering. we need a strong special forces presence, and we need some on going training. but we haven't done a very good job defining and articulating what the end point is in afghanistan. i think the american people are getting very tired about where we find ourselves today. >> the candidates were asked if israel decided to bomb iran over nuclear weapons, what would they do as president? again, a few more answers. >> i would support israel, yes, and in some instances, dependent upon how strong the plan is, we would join with israel for that if it was clear with the mission was and it was clear what the definition of victory was. >> why does israel need our help? we need to get out of their way. we interfere with them. we interfere with them when they deal with their borders. we they will them what they can do. we buy and they sacrifice their
10:10 pm
sovereignty to us, and they decide they want to bomb something. that's their business, but they should suffer the consequences. >> why is it that we are talk about israel having to make a strike against iran? iran has announced they plan to strike israel. they have stated as recently as august, just before president president ahmadinejad. >> there was no gaps and a few protesters out here tonight. members of the occupy d.c. movement trying to get an earful with the candidates as they leave constitution hall tonight. >> bob, political analyst is here now. mark, i think a lot of onlookers assume this wouldn't necessarily be the strength for some of the front runners, including herman cain, who came out the winner tonight? >> it's noteworthy to note that herman cain has been in two of these debates.
10:11 pm
he seems totally out of his league. it seems to me that what was interesting is that ron paul oh is doing better in iowa. john huntsman are the antiwar candidates. they are for leaving afghanistan and for leaving quickly and without a lot of troops and mitt romney is very concerned about protecting his flank and i think bob's line about cut and run was look, i'm strong on foreign policy and i'm strong on keeping the commitment in afghanistan. >> did tonight do in some of the people that were thought to perhaps not really contend in the long haul which is herman cain and maybe newt gingrich? >> newt gingrich, he was asked the first question. and he has a lot of theorizing. i didn't think he had as great of clarity. i think romney always does well. i think perry has recovered and i think it's interesting, as i
10:12 pm
mentioned before, to see, is there a strain in the republican party of leaving afghanistan sooner than what is the conventional wisdom, which is really supportive of the obama administration. >> political analyst, mark, thanks for coming in tonight. a $27 million ponzi scheme carried out right here in d.c. and the victims are lining up. we are tracking down the man who is at the top of all of this. >> also ahead, a thief beats a 92-year-old man with his own cane, but that didn't keep this man from fighting back. more details when we come back.   see the under cover video and you won't believe what they are building. tonight on the news edge at 11:00. inding a car?

10:32 pm
over two years transferred to the general fund. $90million more planned for 2012. >> do these fund transfers hurt your mission? >> yes, absolutely they do. >> kim is maryland executive director of the chesapeake bay foundation. if took some arm twisting in 2004 to create this special bay restoration fund. >> a third of this bay has two little oxygen. >> each household in the state now pays an extra $2.50 a month. the flush tax as it's known is supposed to be dedicated to upgrading maryland's waste water treatment plants to protect the chesapeake bay. >> there has to be more accountability for those dollars to be spent. >> $32 million was moved from the chesapeake. that comes from part of your gas tax and car rental money, too. >> there was supposed to be $50 million designated for that
10:33 pm
fund. we haven't gotten half. >> and that means some of the work needed to protect the bay doesn't get done. even though taxpayers have already paid for it. and the list of rated funds goes on and on. the used tire recycling fund comes from a tire tax, the waterway improvement fund, which comes from a boat tax. the open spaces fund, which comes from a tax on property sales. the volunteer fire company assistance fund, which comes from a tax on traffic tickets and dozens more. again, maryland delegates, luis simmons. >> whether you actually look at all of the funds and the moneys that are collected for one purpose and diverted for another purpose. it really is staggering. >> maryland's house speaker, michael busch, defends the money move. >> i don't think we are unlike other states who are trying to adjust their budgets to prioritize with their funding. when we come here every year,
10:34 pm
our first priority is to fund the system. >> some of the funds like the transportation trust fund and the bay restoration fund are replenished by borrowing money and paying it back with interest. >> to me, it's really a trust issue. >> marta is an analyst with the maryland public policy institute. >> you know, you really are associating what that money paid for and where it's being used. over time, that builds distrust between the people and the people they elect. >> take these to the voting unit. >> that could be a problem, especially at a time when governor o'malley is pushing to raise gas taxes, double or triple the flush tax and add a statewide bag tax. >> we advocate for these fees and feel a certain responsibility to the people that support them to make sure the money is going there. >> delegate simmons says these
10:35 pm
special fund transfers have been going on for a long time and there is another way. >> and saying you know what? if we tax somebody and say the money is going for this purpose, we are going to honor our compact with the taxpayer and if we need money for something else, we're going to have the guts and conviction to say, either raise taxes or cut back the program. and we have not shown the courage or conviction to do either except to raise taxes in a crisis. >> he and many others believe it's time to put the trust back in the trust fund. >> and brian, there are more special fund transfers planned for the next fiscal year. some lawmakers proposed bills that would prevent the diversion of money from the special funds. they haven't gotten very far. >> what about putting the money back? >> as we said, they do put the money back in some cases. not all the funds by borrowing the money, by bonding it out. but that means that we have debts to pay. next year the state will pay a
10:36 pm
billion dollars in debt service and there's also a debt ceiling in maryland. a lot of people don't know that, which is the state treasurer's office, if we continue borrowing the way we have, we're going to hit that debt ceiling in five years. >> thanks. they lost everything in the fierce flooding. tonight their neighbors are helping them give thanks for what they still have. each other. but first, congress can't tackle the debt, but they can tackle those pesky baggage fees. >> the economy not growing as fast as previously reported. the weaker numbers coming right before the busy holiday shopping season. meantime, the federal reserve saying it will give stress tests now for six of america's biggest banks. the fed is looking to see how they would react to a market shock in a worsening european debt crisis. bank of america, one of them getting tested. to more than a two-year low. after reports said that regulators are telling the bank
