Obama's North Africa problem, warns Americans to stay out

The U.S. is warning Americans to stay out of Benghazi, Libya  - site of the deadly attack on the U.S. mission four months ago.

That comes as the British government warns of a "specific and imminent threat to Westerners" in the city. Germany and the Netherlands also urging their citizens to leave Benghazi immediately.

The terror threat in north Africa is a growing concern for the Obama administration - one that's opening up a divisive debate about what the U.S. should do.

Pentagon Correspondent Chris Lawrence has the story.

Sen. Feinstein introduces assault weapons ban foreseeing an 'uphill battle'

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein proposed a new federal ban that would upgrade the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 and also prohibit magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

Feinstein admits getting passage of her proposal will not be easy.

Dems' internal problem with gun control

"If anyone asks, 'can you win this?' The answer is we don't know, it's so uphill," Feinstein said.

Are Democrats overreaching on gun control and risking any chance for success?

Manti Te'o admits he lied about girlfriend, but is there more to the story

Former star Notre Dame football player, Manti Te'o has admitted he lied to the media and the public after learning the girl he met online didn't exist.

In an interview with Katie Couric, Te'o was asked if it was somehow "intoxicating" to continue talking about his dead girlfriend, when he knew it wasn't true.

Te'o tells Katie Couric he lied, again, about fake girlfriend

"I think for me, the only thing I basked in was that, no I could, I had an impact on people, that people turned to me for inspiration and I think that was the only thing I focused on. You know, my story I felt was a guy who in times of heart ship and in times of trial really held strong to his faith, held strong to his family, and I felt that was my story," Te'o said.

The question tonight, does Te'o's story that he was a victim add up or was he in on the hoax?
