tv Americas News Headquarters FOX News October 1, 2011 10:00am-11:00am PDT
>> hello, everyone, i'm kelly wright. welcome to a brand new hour of america's news headquarters. >> i'm jamie colby, on top of the news, there are new details coming to light about the drone attack that killed al-qaeda leader al with-awlaki. >> kelly: a terrifying crash, a plane hitting a ferris wheel full of children. >> i flew in. i was up and next thing i know, didn't in the ferris wheel. >> and the life of a grizzly bear is taken and set off a firestorm of controversy. an idaho man says he he was protecting his family and others say he committed a crime. we're going to report. you decide. >> kelly: another big setback for america's enemies today. one day after a u.s. drone strike kills al-qaeda leader anwar al-awlaki in yemen, they
have he' nabbed a terror leader in yemen. one of the most ruth letters operating out of pakistan and he's reasonable believed to be responsible for the high profile attacks in afghanistan and including last month's deadly attack in kabul. molly henneberg live from washington with more details and molly, what do we know now about in guy's role in the haqqani terror operation? >> hi, kelly. his name, kahn, a revered elder in the clan and high ranking in the terror network, moves them in and out for attacks on u.s. troops. a security operation in the eastern afghan province, near pakistan, he was said to be halfly armed, but did not put up any resistance when he was captured and also swept up in
the operation, his deputy and bodyguard. >> kelly: a good capture and also we've heard word that the missile strike in yemen, molly, may have taken out a prominent al-qaeda bomb maker there. >> it's not confirmed yet, but u.s. officials believe it may have killed now three, well-known and dangerous al-qaeda terrorists. we knew about anwar al-awlaki, american born, we knew he was killed and another american who did propaganda work for the terror group, but appears that the missiles took out al-qaeda's top bomb maker, and a way to get nonmetallic explosives through traditional american security. one says that this strike is significant and cautions that the messages of the three terrorists live on through technology. >> with awlaki now out of the picture, another one bites the dust because you will now see another, more emerging figures and continues to thrive.
there's an online, for example, jihadology, if you look at that alone, you see a f plethora of statements, and will increase recruit: he's been linked toed failed underwear bombing of 2009 and the failed cargo bombing. >> kelly: and as we heard from the the statement our vigilance still has to be keen. molly henneberg from washington, thank you very much. meanwhile, awlaki was linked to at least three so-called lone wolf attackers accused of plotting against the united states. sha sad, accused of trying to set off a boom in time square, says he drew inspiration from awlaki. and before an attack that left
1 people dead in 2009 and yemeni officials say fumar farouk abdulmutallab, who tried to take down a plane on christmas day, also had ties with awlaki. >> jamie: a closer look at how al-awlaki was able to gain so much influence in the al-qaeda organization. take a look at this, from our special, the american tours. >> an association between islam and-- >> that's anwar al-awlaki, going big time, starring in the day of a life of an imam. after four years of preaching in a small mosque in san diego with 2 to 300 people awlaki expands his reach and preaches to thousands. >> the 30-year-old moved to northern virginia to become an imam at the islamist center in the washington suburb, one
ever the largest on the east coast and thousands attend prayers and services each week. >> and he doesn't have high credentials, but it doesn't steam to matter, because, of his, his impressiveness and his charisma. >> this is where i first saw anwar in spring of 2001. and presided (inaudible). >> a saudi national and director for institute of affairs in washington d.c. >> to be both capable of speaking of perfect clerical arabic and accent-free american english. >> the more you know, the more
you understand, the safer you are and you cannot miss the special, fox news reports, the american terrorists, and it will be right here on fox, that's later today at 3 p.m. eastern, and tomorrow if you missed it 9 p.m. eastern. >> kelly: on to washington now where president obama is demanding that congress move quickly, to pass the 447 million dollar jobs bill, but republicans say a better result could be achieved lie rolling back government regulation. our peter doocy live now in washington with more details. peter, what is the president saying today about his jobs bi bill. >> reporter: the president why they haven't signed off on the jobs bill which he sent to congress three weeks ago. >> some republicans in congress have said they agree with certain parts of the jobs bill. if so, it's time for them to tell me what those proposals are, if they're opposed to the
jobs bill i'd like to to exactly what they're against. are they against putting teachers and police officers and firefighters back on the job? >> are they against hiring construction workers to rebuild our roads and bridges and schools? . are they against giving tax cuts to virtually small business and worker in america? >> and republicans aren't alone questioning the jobs plan. just 38% of registered voters actually think it's going to create jobs and 18% think it will cost jobs and 39% don't think it will make a difference at all. on the whole. 39% of voters think that the president's tax plan and jobs plan are bad for america, 48% think it will be good for america and 6% don't know what to think, kelly. >> it seems a the lot of people are scratching their heads right now and you know, republicans offered a different idea about how to create jobs in their address. what did they say? >> yeah, the g.o.p. is focusing their ideas for economic recovery on cutting excessive regulations and getting government out of the
way of small businesses and they've introduced the legislation in the house, but they are he' saying they need the president to get on board wi with. >> president obama who said he is willing to stop excessive legislation, should focus on these jobs bill. getting the government out of the way so our economy can return to creating jobs. >> reporter: one last note about creating jobs. another fox poll shows that 47% of registered voters think a year from now, unemployment will be higher, just 37% any think it will be lower, kelly. >> kelly: peter doocy, we thank you for that report, jamie. >> jamie: thanks, kelly. it's more than three years since the u.s. economy tanked and some folks are still struggling, even more than some. according to a new fox news poll. 70% of voters consider the the current economic situation to be the result of bad
leadership. so, who is to blame. congress? the president, or both? joining us now, republican political consultant, tony sayag and doug schoen. >> good to see you, hi, jamie. >> jamie: what do you think in terms of who is to blame? there seems to be enough blame to go around? who will voters look to to hold responsible? >> i think they're going to hold everyone accountable. look, the democrats have more at risk, they've got 23 seats in the senate, and for the republicans, the republicans obviously have a substantial majority in the house and the democrats have the white house. the election will ultimately be with referendum on the president, but i think, frankly, from the fox news polling content and everything you see, voters hold everyone accountable and are just plain mad. >> how does it translate. what does each side do in order to have voters believe their plan is the one that will pull us out of this? >> well, frankly, there's such
a cynicism of both parties, i highly doubt that any one or two things that the parties do will change this opinion very far, but to the point that doug made. i think the democrats have a greater amount of political exposure next year, meaning they're the ones who are primarily on the ballot. you have a president who's going to be held to task for a very weak economy, the weakest since the great depression and as doug pointed out 22 democratic seats in the senate have to be defended twice as many as republican seats and we've seen since 2006, a very consistent decline in public opinion of how they view their government in washington, and in '06, the republicans lost congress as a result. in '08, lost the presidency as a result and in 2010, the democrats lost the house as a result and some seats in the senate, and if you really think that trend will continue, which this poll certainly seems to indicate, it is likely to elude the senate and presidency, excuse he me, next year as a result of dissatisfaction. >> jamie: let's take another
look at the poll because as you've said, there seems to be enough blame to go around and broken down into democrats and republicans, everybody shares a little bit of the connection between where we are today and how people are feeling it, particularly in their pocket books. one issue, it seems to me, one issue is raising taxes and almost seems like warren buffet is backing off from being part of the buffet rule and that in his opinion, millionaires are a lot richer than who president obama wants to get with more taxes. how do you think the middle class that's left is going to feel if they want to achieve more, but have a disincentive because of the potential that taxes could be raised? >> i think that's the issue because when you you talk about a millionaire's tax, okay, that's one thing, but as tax rates go up on those from 150 or 250 on up, and you have two wage earners making in that range with 2 or 3 kids, they are he' not wealthy and if taxes go up, and the burden
gets higher, it's going to retard job creation and retard spending and ultimately hurt the economy. >> jamie: the outlook, tony, seems to be so gloomy and another poll on this respect. for people on jobs. tony, how quickly once the job numbers turn, when there are only 350,000 people looking for jobless berths nefits in a week. they're seeing a sigh of relief, where are they going. >> you'll see the president take and hyper political posture, even with the jobs bill which frankly didn't even have any democratic spots in the house or the senate. it almost was not even going to be able to be brought to the floor were it not for harry reed finally agreeing to the white house's request to introduce it. no democrat want today social their name to the jobs bill, it's solely cosmetic. the only thing that gets us out is economic growth and it's not going to happen with the barriers created by this administration and i think that's why people finally realized there's no quick fix
to the job situation and do you have to liberate the private economy to do the job. when you want to go to the buffet rule. you're correctly pointing out. warren buffett says president obama 1 million dollars and if you use 10 million dollars it should apply. and bush tax cuts, the the president wants to expire on the wealthy, there's an odd issue here and not consistent by the president who is wealthy and deserves to be taxed. what's popular 50% of americans in a gallup poll they'd like to see tax reform and structural meaning and bipartisan support. >> jamie: i've got to bring doug in here, i have ten seconds, 75% leadership poll, 12% said they think it's all due to bad luck, is that what this has come to, luck? >> if it's bad luck i'd like to meet the 12%, it's a
different america from the one i'm seeing and i think we're living in. >> jamie: doug schoen and tony, thank you so much, gentlemen, great to see you. kelly? >> well, it's another rough day of weather in chicago, along lake michigan. take a look at the high winds right now. and strong surf on famed lake shore drive. huge waves knocking over a bike vieder and today, the warning, waves could reach 25 feet. nlgs moe molina with more details. >> those are crazy images and fortunately, the gusty winds persist throughout the day and there's a rip current across coastal areas of lake michigan, that's rough there because of a large trough setup and an area from canada to the blakes and as far south as atlanta, georgia. 45 tonight and otherwise gusty winds persisting throughout the day and they will be
weakening late tonight into tomorrow so you're going to see some improvement as far as the wind goes, but because those winds are weakening we're going to have to start watching out for some areas of frost to develop as we head late tonight and tomorrow morning, a number of frost advisories across the parts of states of wisconsin, michigan, into most of the state as indiana and indianapolis, tomorrow morning, you could be waking up to some frost on your cars and something to keep an eye on, otherwise the area of low pressure drifting on eastward and keeping things unsettled across the northeast and bringing in rain across central portions of pennsylvania. heavy at times across pittsburgh and through portions of new england and guess what, guys, we're actually going to start to see some snowfall across west virginia, with this very same system bringing in cooler air and we're talking about accumulations between two to four inches across some of those higher elevations through tonight and into tomorrow. and so that's something we're looking at. otherwise the rain will linger across the region and tomorrow, not too warm across the great lakes and 51 your
high in cleveland. >> kelly: october 1st and we're already talking about snow. >> yeah, get ready. >> kelly: thanks, maria. >> jamie: imagine protecting your family and it becomes a problem with the feds. an idaho man killed a 300 pound grizzly bear cub playing near his home, he didn't know where his kids were at the time and worried and he says he shot it at self-defense. he gets fined. at one time the possibility of jail. it sparked a major debate and dan springer has the story for us, i can't believe the story, honestly. >> reporter: yeah, it's shocking, the guy believes he's protecting his family and shoots his bear. the endangered species act does allow to kill endangered species if human life is threatened. or if property is threatened, but grizzly bears don't fall into the category, because they take so long to reproduce and the population is precarious, every bear is
thought to be critical to recovery of the species. the u.s. attorney says jeremy hill was legal when he fired the first two shots because at the time, he thought his kids were outside near the bears, but he he crossed the line they say when he fired the third and fatal shot after he knew his kids were safely inside the house. here is wendy olson. >> these are difficult cases, and the best thing for prosecutors to do as soon as they're aware there's a grizzly bear on or near the property, fish and game, call fish and wild life. >> reporter: of course, you can never count on fish and game getting out there soon enough if the bear is attacking your kids. the public outrage caused the u.s. attorney to backtrack and drop the criminal charges and the fine to $1,000 and he had to pay $20,000 in legal fees, jamie. >> jamie: that's interesting, i guess he didn't make that call and the law is the law. but are there a lot of conflicts between bears and people in this area. >> kelly: should he have known they were out there to begin with? >> well, bears of course have
been in that area of the country forever. the pacific northwest, the population did decrease and it has been coming back recently, but attacks are on the rise throughout the northwest west and northwest because of the efforts to recover grizzlies especially in people, places like yellowstone national park, but also, with the snowy spring, cold, forced the bears down into the local populations and looking for food, but people in the northwest, northern idaho, have been living with grizzlies forever and they say charging hill was classic government overreach. >> it flew in the face of common sense. and if your family is in danger of being mauled or injured or killed by a grizzly bear or any other animal for that matter, just, it's common sense to protect your family from that attack. >> reporter: get this, jamie, some conservationists thinking that the u.s. attorney should have taken this all the way to court because they think that
hill maybe shot that bear dead because the bear was threatening a pig in a pen. of course, you remember only 40 yards away from the house and at the time at least when he fired the first two shots he didn't know where his kids were. jamie. >> jamie: thank you for telling us the facts on this one. take care. >> reporter: sure. >> kelly: fascinating story there. listen to this, a horrifying crash a plane slams into a ferris wheel. even police were amazed no one was hurt. full details coming up. >> and out of the ordinary what we expected this morning, didn't expect anything like this at the festival. and the potential, potential for fatality here was enormous. there's only one bottle left ! i've got to tell susie ! the vending machine on elm is almost empty. i'm on it, boss. new pony sorry ! we are open for business. let's reroute greg to fresno. growing businesses use machine-to-machine technology

>> welcome back, everybody. there was absolute panic at a weekend festival in australia after a plane slammed into had a ferris wheel, trapping two kids. it was absolutely amazing that no one was seriously injured. witnesses are saying the ferris wheel was packed with kids moments before the impact. but most had gotten out because of the bad weather. the pilot says he he simply didn't see the ride and he's just thankful that no one was
hurt. >> and went to take off and go around and didn't even see the ferris wheel and i was up and next thing i know, i was stuck inside the ferris wheel. hope no one got hurt and i had no idea for a few minutes and i was happy no one got hurt and two kids up there, after that and i was panicking about them and nothing i could do, you know. >> they were literally dangling, kelly. check this out and the kids and pilots both dangling for the rescuers, took rescuers hours to free the kids, the pilot and his passenger from that wreck. an investigation, as you can imagine, is underway. >> kelly: unbelievable. >> jamie: it is. >> kelly: well, a piece of real he estate going on the auction block. a small island, a stone's throw away from new york city, and long island sound. but there's no electricity, no buildings and much of the island is underwater at high tide. and the name alone, rat island, might scare off some bidders. julie banderas live in our
news room. >> reporter: don't let the rat name fool you. i'll explain in a second. if you're looking for real estate real estate, rat island could be the place for you, to be clear, the island is not infested with rats as the name might suggest, legend has it, in fact, the island which dates back to the 1800's was named after prisoners called rats escaping from the island, swimming with cardboard boxes over their heads, to look like trash. and calling it an island is a stretch, much of it underwater at high tide. half a mile east of city highland will go to the highest builder a retired marine contractor purchased the island in the 70's and used it to store equipment and salvage barges. he says the island has many other uses as well. >> i'm sure you could build something, a home if you wanted and have your wind generator and your view and peace and quiet, your
tranquility. on the east side of the island is 60 feet of water and put your lobster trap outside your front door. >> so far eight to 15 serious bidders, vfw and others want the island to call their own. you'll have to find a way to get out to it. >> noi there are fellows from the touring kayak club and this would be perfect for you guys, but they've gone out there with the kayaks and so forth and it's just, such an easy thing to do right up the beach there, but it's not the same for everyone. but it would be for the person that's got a boat at a marina that could take it out, set it up. might find it just to be ideal. >> the city of new york has assessed rat island at $255,000, expects it to sell within 30 to 40 percent of the valley and bidder inherits taxes each year and the
auction held tomorrow at 1 p.m., what a steal. >> kelly: we'll be watching that, what a steal. >> jamie: say it ain't so, five airplanes full of passengers taking off on a closed runway this week. how was it allowed to happen? details on airport that's now under investigation. plus, a big announcement from the president of afghanistan today, and a possible blow to hopes for peace there. stay with us.

it's great to gain your insights on this topic, now that awlaki is dead along with top lieutenants, what does it mean for the united states as far as al-qaeda's reach into the united states to inspire and reach out and recruit lone wolfs or operators here in america? >> well, first of all, awlaki was indeed a very important maker of american jihadist, they be organized themselves or home grown jihadists or lone wolves, he was made by the ideology and the ideology is still around. second, more or less a decade he has been working on creating the next wave of awlakis in the united states. lets assume, that this is a tactical, but it won't have a strategic implications unless it begins with the war of ideas. >> what do we have to do. one thing to have a tactical
advantage and be able to take out people like awlaki, as you stated there are more out this who can fill the shoes of those who have been liquidated thus far. >> well, the evidence is very simple. he used to send e-mails and/or activities. those readers are the next generation of awlakis, what the united states and allies should be doing, on one hand very successful. eliminating those, but on the other hand find allies or counter jihadists, they're going to be winning that online battle, not us. >> kelly: you know, that's a concern that has to be won. we have to be vigilant about that. what would be your advice to the u.s. government in trying to infiltrate those websites, that tear them down and also to try to get the word out there that america is not against this law, it's against the militant forces coming
from within. >> absolutely. and to go one inch further, to say that this is an ideology, this is not an issue of religion and theology. we need to be very clear and to do so, we have to identify it and second, we need to find, as i said, allies, we have a huge opportunity if it's called the arab spring, across the board in the region we see young people, males and females, with websites, with facebook, going against those anti-democracy forces, including al-qaeda. so, we need to partner with them, not with the muslim brotherhood or those who are actually ideological feeding al-qaeda. >> kelly: very important point right there. another point thing that took place today, n.a.t.o. announcing it's captured one of the top senior commanders of the haqqani network. how vital of a role could his capture play in bringing down that network, that's been operating against our forces in afghanistan? >> it will all depend on the amount of information he has the offer and the a information the agencies will
be able to receive and comparing this with what the government of afghanistan knows, but the little problem that we have, is that most of the haqqani network is pakistan-based and we know that relationships, the relationship between us and intelligence community of pakistan is not at the very high level so we need to fix that on one hand, but it's very important for the american public and international public to understand that it's not just the taliban and the al-qaeda, it's the jihad and haqqani network is part of the network. >> kelly: that underscores exactly what you've been talking about all along, that's the ideology of these militants. how do we get in and unravel that so we can help protect the united states as well as our allies from the terror networks? >> first by considering and understanding that what binds all of these networks is not the organization, it's the ideology, that's the factor. what can counter that, first of all, is how we behave on one hand, but something else is to work with those who-- and those communities are
ant anti-jihadists, students movements, women's movements, and-- >>. >> kelly: and americans will not be soft, either. we thank you so much for your comments as always. good day. >> thank you. ♪ >> bank of america creating a backlash and it's got everybody talking. they announced new fees for their debit card customer. in fact, five bucks a month, if you use your debit card for purchases. what do they have in store next? and which other banks will be charging you more for your business. the founder and ceo of the powell financial group, hi, patricia. >> hi. >> jamie: i've got to ask if banks are double dibbing. today is the day that the durbin amendment goes into effect and charges less to merchants when you use your card with them, the debit card. >> right. >> jamie: to make up the money, the banks are going to charge us for using it for
purpose, but are they steering people back toward credit card usage where they make money, too? >> i think the banks are indifferent to that. what they're not indifferent to is the debit fees are a 19 billion dollars a year income item for the banks, as a whole. and durbin amendment, actually, puts quite a dent in that and i think that the banks are looking for revenue anywhere they can go. you can see this one a mile away though. you knew that this was going to kcome. >> jamie: well, hundreds of bank of america branches have closed or will be closed. and it's been hit hard, but why is that our problem? >> it's our problem because we need a banking system. it's our problem he we need places where we deposit checks, borrow money. you can't have a robust economy if you don't have a rebust banking system. we need a robust economy so we can get a robust jobs recovery in here. when we hit the banks over and
over and over again, all we're doing is cutting off our nose to spite our face. it may feel good in the short run, but in the long run it just doesn't help. >> jamie: now, chase bank is going to charge you extra if you want to pay per statement and bank of america, an online account, charge you if you want to go into a branch. how will folks know the rules? it's becoming so cumbersome and a huge percentage of people aren't getting free checking anymore. >> that's right. these are all disappearing and it all goes back to a lot of government involvement. and for what people, you know, you're going to have to pay attention to the rules that your bank is imposing and you know, he they put the inserts in your checking statements and you have that online when you go online. you're actually going to have to read them. the other thing that i think people should pay attention to, they should pay attention to everything that's going on around them and they should think about instead of using a debit card. use things like cash. you remember, this is what it looks-- we use today use it all the time. with dead people on it, you know, and use cash, a much
better budgeting tool, but i agree with you, if you switch over to credit cards, it's a prescription for disaster. >> jamie: we'll be right back where we started. >> absolutely. >> jamie: and we have trouble paying mortgages, but patricia, the way it's set up now with the banking system, we help the banks, a lot of people, they protested, bank of america's website crashed yet. >> i know. >> jamie: so many people complained about this, we helped them and they did pay book bank of america when they bailed them out, why hurt the customer? >> you should ask that question of senator durbin. he was the one who decided to pick the bank's pocket. i don't want to be an apologies for the banks out there. no fan of the way that they've been. we have to have revenue and if your a going to control prices with what senator durbin thinks is a good idea here, it's going to pop out somewhere else. it's not so much the $60, many of your viewers can afford that, but there are a whole group of people barely in the banking system and they're
going to-- the people on the fringes are going to be hurt the most and that's the really sad thing is the people that often are the loudest politicians out there how they are he' helping everybody, hurt the people they claim to help and they want to help the most. >> jamie: i dependent see whether that was a 10 or a 50, whatever you held up, healeave t on the table and make my day. cash is king and read those inserts and the small print. >> kelly: might be sticking money underneath the mattresses, wait and see. and talking about cars, a car lover's delight, automakers bringing their newest vehicles to one place for journalists to test drive. guess who was that. >> jamie: gary? >> and gary gastelu hit the track in this week's car report. >> every year the international motor press association gets together with automakers and bring the latest cars to a track for journalists to take out for a spin. and if this traffic jam lets you up, i'll do that.

wider, longer, it's much than the one it replaces and from the guitar cover, talk about rock and roll! >> of all the cars here, this is the one that drives the most, the new one. transposed, hot. at the monticello motor club, gary gastelu. >> kelly: all right, for more on this week's car report, go to fox car report.com for the latest car reviews. >> more on the deadly listeria outbreak involving cantaloupes. what steps you really need to take to protect your family.
