Selecting Faces Problem

I have a problem when building a model, I cannot drag select a bunch of faces - lasso does not do it either. Check pic.
I have success when I create a new scene, create sphere and click drag on faces - I get the faces - the expected result.
But after I am modeling and I do delete history on the model, I try to drag select group of faces and get pictured bad result - I have to rotate the model and go from behind and select more faces?
I have made sure normals are facing out, as seen but no luck.
