Murder in the Family: Honor Killing in America

For two years, Fox News has been investigating the short lives and violent deaths of Texas teenagers Amina and Sarah Said.

The sisters were riddled with bullets in their dad’s borrowed taxi cab on New Year’s Day 2008. As 911 operators listened in, Sarah appeared to name her father as the killer — her dying words: “Help! Help! My dad shot me… and now I’m dying!”

This kind of crime isn’t supposed to happen in America’s heartland — an honor killing.

Honor killings are when a father, husband or brother kills a wife, daughter or sister because he thinks she has “shamed” the family. The United Nations has found such murders are all too common in Muslim lands. Now they are happening here.

How and why?

Through exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage, Fox News exposes the implications of this shocking case.

2008: FOX News’ Bret Baier was granted unprecedented access by George W. Bush as the president begins the final year of his extraordinarily consequential tenure.

This historic documentary — shot in high definition — takes you inside the Oval Office, to the president’s Texas ranch, aboard Air Force One and into his private sanctums in the White House residence.

In a series of no-holds-barred interviews, the president talks openly of his aim to consolidate his mark on history, his “Freedom Agenda,” the failure to catch Usama bin Laden, the role faith has played in his presidency and how he was inspired by the writings and deeds of Abraham Lincoln.

It’s an unflinching, fair and balanced look at the nation’s 43rd president — only on FOX News Channel.

Two Trillion with a T: How You Bought Wall Street

Special thanks to Brian Gaffney.

(In 2008) investment banking titan Bear Stearns, a pillar of Wall Street, collapsed. Hoping to stop a global financial meltdown, the U.S. government brokered a sale of the financial giant and put taxpayers on the hook for billions.

It was the first of many bailouts with price tags escalating from billions to trillions of dollars. But that didn’t stop the crash. In fact, it may have fueled it.

‘Special Report’ host Bret Baier takes you through a behind-the-scenes investigation as FOX News reveals how taxpayers bought up much of Wall Street, while the government took an unprecedented role in the American financial system. This special investigative report has been months in the making.

We’ve tracked the evolution of the bailout in two administrations and have exclusive interviews which include President George W. Bush, his Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, House Banking Chairman Barney Frank, and Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich among others.

Trillion with a T: How to Spend $1,000,000,000,000.00

So how do you spend $1,000,000,000,000?

In this exclusive FOX News investigative report, “Special Report” host Bret Baier will address the trillion dollar question.

We’ll reveal the good, the bad and the ugly of President Obama’s spending bill:

President Obama’s 700-page, trillion-dollar stimulus plan has moved through Congress with breathtaking speed — too fast even for lawmakers to read it before they voted.

So, for the past month a FOX News investigative team has gone behind the chaotic scenes with Senators and members of Congress, Capitol Hill staffers, liberal and conservative interest groups as they wrestled with the bill.

But will this mammoth spending bill save the economy or will the politicians’ partisan agendas bankrupt America?

And is America doomed? Or is help on the horizon?

That’s the trillion-dollar question.

Religion in America: Church and State

Presented with the kind permission of Fox News Channel.
Special thanks to Brian Gaffney.

For the past half-century, the first country in the world to guarantee religious freedom has been locked in a legal war that has driven the symbols of God and religion out of its schools and courthouses, its statehouses and city halls and threatens to go further.

… join host Brit Hume as FOX News tour of the religious battlefields of the United States.

We’ll show you what the Founding Fathers thought they were doing when they first guaranteed American religious freedom.

We’ll investigate how the wall of separation between church and state really gets built in modern America and how Americans are fighting back.

Tune in for a fair and balanced examination of one of the most divisive and important issues in America today.

Do You Know What Textbooks Your Children are Really Reading?

Hosted by Tucker Carlson

Fox News Reporting investigated the $10 billion dollar-a-year textbook industry and how the drive to be politically correct might be taking over American schools.

Host Tucker Carlson, asked experts, teachers, publishers and parents the same question: “Do you know what is inside your children’s textbooks?” From kindergarten through college, we found staggering errors and omissions which may be pushing agendas, hidden and otherwise.

We spoke to the author of “The Language Police,” education historian Diane Ravitch, who said textbook publishers censor images or words they deem to be controversial in children’s textbooks. She told us that publishers pander to special interest groups, and assemble bias and sensitivity review committees. These committees decide what words to ban or redefine, and even what images are deemed offensive.

And we examined some college textbooks both in print and in digital forms. We found a glaring mistake in an expensive history book written by Alan Brinkley, Provost at New York’s Columbia University.

And in Fairfax County Virginia, questions remain about what textbooks are used in the private Islamic Saudi Academy. The ISA teaches about 1000 students each year pre-K — 12. Questions have been raised about its textbooks at least since 2006.

This summer, Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, ISA’s 1999 valedictorian, was sentenced to life in prison for his role in a 2002 Al Qaeda plot to assassinate President George W. Bush.

The ISA is wholly owned by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and teaches students from textbooks, which according to a report by a Saudi scholar interviewed by Fox News, continues to “propagate an ideology of hate to the unbeliever.” Fox News Reporting obtained some of their current 2008-2009 textbooks which were supposed to be purged of inflammatory language. We found proof otherwise.

We tracked down two American college professors who were paid by the ISA to review these textbooks. They signed a letter obtained by Fox News that the ISA’s 2008-2009 textbooks “do not contain inflammatory material…” One of them sat down for an interview; the other refused.

And in California’s Alameda County, our cameras were there as parents were embroiled in a heated debate over a mandatory curriculum designed to teach students from grades K-5 about different types of families, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender lifestyles. After a vote by the Alameda Unified School District in May of this year, the second grade reading curriculum now requires a book about gay penguins.

Fox News Reporting examines what is really inside children’s textbooks.

Americans Held Hostage In Iran

“On the Record” host Greta Van Susteren hosts “Fox News Reporting: Americans Held Hostage in Iran” on Fox News Channel. This hour-long exclusive Fox News documentary commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Iranian hostage crisis.

On November 4, 1979, America had its first showdown with radical Islam when the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran was stormed by students hoping to stage a three-day sit-in. Initially, the Islamist students’ intent was to protest America’s decision to allow the exiled Shah of Iran to enter the United States for medical treatment. Instead, the ordeal became 444 days of hostage hell for 52 Americans.

In this watershed moment in American history, Fox News talks to key players in the crisis and examines how President Jimmy Carter struggled to resolve the crisis in an election year. Among those interviewed include: Former Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher; Fox News contributor Bob Beckel, who was Deputy Assiatant to the President during the crisis; White House Chief of Staff James Baker. Several of the hostages, who were released as Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president in January 1981, also relive their frightening days in captivity.

What is stronger than hate and bloodshed?

While Israel and Hamas engage in “all-out war” in the Gaza Strip, a FOX News documentary tells an extraordinary story of faith, courage, violence, betrayal and conversion.

Correspondent Jonathan Hunt’s investigation goes deep inside Hamas, through a series of stunning exclusive interviews with the son of a founding member of the Islamic terrorist group. Mosab Hassan himself became the leader of the radical Islamic Youth Movement, fought Israeli tanks and troops in the streets, celebrated suicide bombings and recruited young men to the cause.

But that all changed when Mossab says he realized the true nature of Hamas and radical Islam, during a stint in an Israeli prison.

He converted to Christianity and now — despite an Al Qaeda death sentence hanging over him — he speaks out for the first time about Hamas, an organization he says betrays the Palestinian cause, tortures its own members and will never honor any ceasefire with Israel.

In November 2004, Fallujah was a safe haven for the most hardened terrorists in Iraq — terrorists who vowed to stop the march of democracy in Iraq.

That was until the Marines of India Company blasted through a railway embankment and crossed into the city.

Their mission: to secure a foothold ahead of the rest of the invading forces.

They were sent into a hellish city to hunt down terrorists house-to-house. The fight for Fallujah made them heroes, but victory came at a cost.

(This FOX News Channel special looks at a) war that is both stark and intimate.

From graphic battle footage to interviews with the families they left behind, join a Marine company in the thick of the War on Terror.

We’ll take you to the battlefield and the home front, where the families of these Marines are American heroes, too.
