government group has brain-stormed the idea of a mutual program with perry that could help introduce their students to more diversity... a bill advancing in the statehouse could help iowa schools better combat bullying... the bill would allow bullied students to enroll in another school and immediately be eligible to participate in varsity sports. currently, the law calls for students who transfer to wait 90 days before taking part in sports. the bill was approved by the house yesterday and is now awaiting senate approval. another bill is aimed at helping make iowa's roadways safer for cyclists.. 'its an easy bill to enforce and already aligns with the laws we have for cars so it just makes sense.' lawmakers in the senate passed a bill this week that would
9:05 pm
motorists to change lanes... to pass a cyclist and wait until they have safely cleared the rider before moving back over. the law would not require motorists to change lanes if there is an established bike lane. current iowa law does not define just how close a motorist can be to a cyclist and riders say this law would help put their mind at ease on the roads. 'its not going to change everybodys behavior but its just something that will be on peoples minds and if it makes an improvement its all for the better.' advocates say 50-percent of fatal bicycle vs. car crashes have been caused by a vehicle overtaking a rider. they say this bill would help create more space and keep everyone safer. the bill now heads over to the house for debate the trial of a boone man accused of killing his wife continued today... the victim's sister gave emotional testimony... alex fazzino faces first degree murder charges...prosecutors say he killed his

9:07 pm
bin near iowa falls. a fire that rescue says using "grain bin rescue tubes" made saving the man's life possible. 06:58:05--21 'that was the only the fastest. yes, we still, for the pure size of the still cut holes inside the grain bin to drain was initially how we got to him.' while the study shows iowa led the nation with seven incidents, the true number could be even higher. that's because the study says many cases go unreported... the study reports there has been reluctance by some victims and employers to report nonfatal incidents since doing so could result in work delays or higher insurance costs. university of iowa president bruce harreld says he won't let this week's contentious meeting with iowa his job. on tuesday harreld held a town hall meeting on the university

9:34 pm
analysts that their reporting on isis was altered on its way up the chain of command - to make president obama's campaign against the terror group look more successful than it really was. catherine herridge reports. it is a serious and credible charge coming from the republican chairman, congressman devin nunes. reading from a prepared statement, he said evidence was destroyed at u.s. central command -- known as centcom - amid allegations that intelligence was exaggerate progress against the islamic state. says: "for example, we have been made aware that both files and e-mails have been deleted by personnel at centcom, and we expect that the department of defense will provide these and all other relevant documents to the committee." during the annual global threats hearing, lawmakers heard that nearly half of the intelligence analysts -- who are responsible for oversee 20 nations including iraq and syria -- say there are serious problems with the integrity of their work. nes says: "it appears like at a there was a process in place to get input from the analysts and to me it ems like that 40% of the analysts that are concerned at centcom that's not just mething that can begnored." ewart says: "we've already had quests where therse a spute at centcom. where we've sent our ombudsmen there to look at thealytic rigor and to look at the different views, so we ntinue to dothis process even as this vestigation gs on." nes says: "would you consider the 40% to be unusual -
9:35 pm
e a number...?" stewart says: : i would consider that unusually high." a source close to the investigation told fox in novemb te last year thatntcom analystswere pressured to ease offgative asses about thelamic state reat. among the complaints that aftethe u.s. airmpaign began in gust 2014the way progress was measured changed. alysts werenstructed to use number of sorties and bounts -- metrics not used since the vietnam war -- to paint a more upbeat cture.tony shaffer is a former intelligence officer who has worked with centcom analysts. shaffer says: "the conflict is between the real truth, the ground truth these analysts stated and what the end results were presented to national leadership. there's a huge gap. and this information that was destroyed would have filled that gap in." on iran, considered the obama administration's most important foreign policy initiative, the nation's intelligence chief, testified that lifting the sanctions in january freed up money for bad actors including the islamic revolutionary guards or irgc and its special forces unit. clapper says: "of the money that was released or freed up by virtue of the jcpoa, that much of it is encumbered either for debt or for demanding or domestic needs of the iranian economy. some money has flowed to uh, you know the organization we worry most about i guess is the irgc, in particular the quds force. 10:06:56 uhm some money has flowed to them but they , not as

struck last fall by mr. obama with china's president, after more than 20 million security clearance files were stolen from the office of personnel management, clapper said beijing is not living up to the deal. in the wake of more than 20 million security clearance files stolen from the office of personnel management, president obama and chinese president xi jinping struck a cyber security deal last fall. clapper testified beijing is not holding up its end of the bargain... clapper says: "i think uh the jury's out. we have seen some reduction but i don't think we're in a position to say at this point whether they're in strict compliance." the battle between privacy versus security took center stage on capitol hill -- and in court -- today. the f-b-i director tamped down expectations that unlocking the san bernardino shooter's phone would set a precedent -- while apple tells the court doing so would be dangerous. adam housley reports apple fires back, filing a motion to vacate a u.s. judge's order requiring the company to work with the fbi to access an iphone belonging to san bernardino terrorist syed farook. in the legal brief, apple also makes the argument, among others, that the government's request, if
9:37 pm
rights and that the fbi is seeking "dangerous power" through courts. company ceo tim cook, in an interview with abc about apple's fight with the feds, says unlocking the terrorist's iphone will "be bad for america." cook says: "there's a lot of bad guys in the world. and you don't need to look further than what has happened to our own government. millions of people have had their personal information stolen by hackers." apples push back comes on the day f- b-i director james comey testified before the house intelligence committee, saying he understands consumers' desire for encryption technology, but he worries about long-term implications and the harm it could have for law enforcement investigations. comey also stressed that the justice department's battle with apple is the hardest question he's seen in government. comey says: "when i hear corporations saying we're going to take you to a world where no one can look at your stuff, part of me thinks that's great. i don't want anybody looking at my stuff. but then i take a step back and say,
9:38 pm
i'm part of, really does save l's lives." . federal sources tell fox they believe the iphone contains information that connects farook to others, who may have helped the terrorist and his wife tashfeen malik, plan or pay for the attack that killed 14 and injured 22 at a christmas party in december. congress now is also looking to get involved, as there's a growing call for a bi-partisan commission that would include the tech industry and law enforcement. virginia governor terry mcauliffe spent the day touring the devastation caused by a deadly tornado. gov. mcauliffe says: "homes are flat for miles and it's really sad to be there and see families and friends walking have a cement foundation, all your looking for is a memento, it's hard." people died in waverly, virginia -- a 26-year- old man, a 50-year-old man and two- year-old boy...
