New evacuations orders are in effect for parts of New Jersey tonight due to the flooding in the wake of Hurricane Irene. We'll check in with our reporter on the scene. Plus, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul talks about why he thinks FEMA needs less funding. And, we're Keeping Them Honest in Syria where the government insists it's not killing it's own people, including children. But wait till you hear what the U.N. is saying tonight.
