Wednesday October 24, 2012 Happening Now

With less than two weeks to go until the election, Governor Romney and President Obama are hammering their final messages as they start on an epic swing through the battleground states.

President Obama, perhaps sensitive to criticism of a lack of details about what he would try to accomplish in his next four year term, is pushing a 20-page booklet summing up a second term. It comes as he continues to hammer Mitt Romney as a wolf in sheep's clothing.. that voters shouldn't buy the moderate Mitt.

In the next 24 hours, the President will be in Washington DC, Davenport, Iowa, Aurora, Colorado, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and


Mister Romney continues to show himself as a stable, strong leader. Romney campaign officials say he will spend the next two weeks presenting himself as a bipartisan bridge-builder. He says of the the President "attacks are not an agenda."

Mister Romney today will campaign in Nevada and Iowa before hitting multiple stops in Ohio.

The other giant story today is the new information on what the Administration knew about the attack on our diplomats in Libya in the lead up to the events, and afterwards.

Fox has obtained internal emails suggesting Al Qaeda-affiliated terror group Ansar al Sharia claimed responsibility for the attack pretty much as it was happening on September 11th. Those emails went out to 300-400 of the nation's top national security figures. It's raising new questions about what White House officials said after the attacks. Catherine Herridge and Ambassador Bolton will weigh in on this developing story.

Another developing story comes to us courtesy The Washington Post which suggests The Obama Administration has developed a wide-ranging program to kill terrorists including the use of drones. The Post calling it "a new blueprint for pursuing terrorists, a next generation targeting list called the ‘disposition matrix."

We'll talk to the author of that report.
