Are the Terror Watch Lists Broken? Tsarnaev was on watch list before Boston bombings

There are at least SIX terror watch lists in america?

It's a statistic that deserves scrutiny after revelations that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was on two of them before his alleged attack on the Boston Marathon.

And guess what - there are many more than the six watch lists we've counted. Other government agencies have their own, quietly maintained ones.

Terror Watch Lists: Vital or unreliable?

Why are there so many?

Is this smart or big government gone bad?

GOP alleges Obama administration engaging in Benghazi cover-up

There are new allegations tonight that the Obama administration is engaged in a cover-up about what happened in and around last fall's deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.

Its been nearly eight months since four Americans were killed in the Benghazi attack and there have been no significant arrests.

House Republicans are investigating – and say the state department is effectively blocking its employees who know important information from testifying.

Outfront tonight: Radio host Stephanie Miller and CNN contributor, Reihan Salam.

Erin Burnett calls for stronger unions after Bangladesh factory collapse

Rescue workers have called off a search for survivors in Bangladesh. Last week the eight-story Rana Plaza complex collapsed trapping thousands and killing hundreds of garment workers.

Most of them young, impoverished women. And it could have been avoided.
Officials say the complex was built on spongy ground without the correct permits and the building's owners ignored cracks.

After Bangladesh building collapse, Shahina's death breaks rescuers' hearts

The government in Bangladesh have vowed to investigate conditions at the factories. And retailers that use the facilities – like Wal-Mart and the Gap – have set aside money to improve safety.

Erin Burnett reminds us that we've heard that tune before.

Hundreds have been killed in similar disasters over the past decade. It has become increasingly obvious that the government and retailers can not and will not police themselves.

Bangladesh has about 4,500 garment factories, which account for 80% of the country's total exports.

Bangladesh garment factory fire claims more than 100 lives: How do you stop it from happening again?

In November, when we told you about a factory fire that killed 112 workers, we said it was time for stronger unions to protect the rights of the workers.

Now, with another 400 dead, Burnett says unions are more important than ever.

FBI searches Boston bomb suspects' home for clues

Authorities tracing the suspects' activities in the weeks before the bombing are focusing on the Tsarnaev brothers' home in Cambridge.

If, as suspected, the brothers planned the marathon bombings in that apartment, did they leave behind any evidence, and did anyone help them?

Paula Newton is OutFront tonight from Cambridge where neighbors have questions of their own.
