If you have been checking the Internet, listening to the radio or watching cable news, then you already know that prosecutors are treating this arrest in connection with the JonBenet Ramsey case with caution... urging the public, as AP reports, not to "jump to conclusions." As we reported earlier, a school teacher is in custody in Thailand and says that he accidentally killed the girl. But now some are suggesting that parts of the story just don't add up. The suspect spoke to reporters in what seemed to be a highly unusual perp walk/press conference. We recognize there is enormous interest in the story and we are covering it from all angles tonight.
But there is other news to report beyond developments in the Ramsey case. And important news at that. Richard Engel is in Southern Lebanon where the Lebanese army arrived to take positions today even though its mandate is still unclear. The Lebanese army apparently will not be disarming Hezbollah and there is still confusion about what countries will participate in the U.N. peacekeeping force.
Also, George Lewis spent time in Fairbanks, Alaska with the 172nd Stryker Brigade. Its welcome home from Iraq party was interrupted with new orders to redeploy. Some of its members had been home for three weeks... and others had not even left Iraq yet.
Pete Williams raises concerns about cargo safety, asking whether that is the real weak link in homeland security. And Ron Mott looks at what some companies are doing to help employees cope with high gas prices. See you tonight.
