tv Greta Van Susteren FOX News May 2, 2013 7:00pm-8:01pm PDT
courageous confrontation and unique style. that's all the time we have this evening. let not your heart be troubled. greta is next. we'll see you back here tomorrow night. thanks for being with us. >> greta: this is a fox news alert. the boston marathon was not the bombers' original target. fox news correspondent david lee miller is live in boston with the breaking news. david lee? >> greta, sources are telling fox news that the boston bombers assembled their devices in the apartment of tamerlan tsarnaev in cambridge, massachusetts, a home he shared with his wife and child, raising serious questions about how he actually went about constructing the device. also a national security source is telling fox's katherine harridge that the bombs came
together much more quickly than the brothers expected, and the boston marathon presented an opportunity, especially when it came to their tiles, the bomb construction happening sooner than they anticipated. we also learned that the bombs that had been assembled totaled at least four in number, four ieds, four improvised explosive devices. the bombs were put together more quickly, considerably more sophisticated than what most homegrown terrorists would probably be able to produce, raising the question, did they receive help, and who provided that help. that's one of the things authorities condition to work on. greta? >> greta: david lee miller raising another big question. i assume their apartment was in the 10,000-square-foot apartment and the wife was just sitting there, and if he's made four ied, it's likely she saw something.
i don't know for sure. >> the wife is under a great deal of scrutiny, now living with her parents in rhode island, in addition to the media as you can imagine camped outside her home, there are also state, local police cars driving by as well as the fbi. our producer on the scene, in fact, reported that three fbi vehicles are discreetly parked nearby the home, so they are watching katherine russell very closely. earlier this week, you might recall, that the fbi removed a number of items from the home. they took a dna sample. and her attorneys continue to remain silent on what, if anything, authorities may have learned. the government has not talked. but many expect that the other shoe is going to drop here, and we could see some significant developments possibly -- possibly i underscore -- involving the wife, although at this time that's not entirely clear. i should also add, greta, that
you might recall, she relinquished control over her husband's body, muslim tradition says that the body has to be buried within 24 hours. tamerlan tsarnaev's body had been at the morgue for -- the m.e.'s office i should say for two weeks' time. she relinquished control. today a family member, who authorities will not disclose, took legal custody of that body. it is now in a funeral home in massachusetts, and because of that a certificate of death might now be filed. at last we might learn the cause of death. did tamerlan tsarnaev die in a hail of bullets, in the shootout with police, or because he was run over by his own brother who attempted to flee the scene the night of that shootout in watertown. so we expect to learn a great deal more about his demise in just the next few hours. greta? >> greta: david lee, my own thought on this, you know, she's in the apartment, the bombs are being assembled, but i did read
early on she was working 70-80 hours per week. as you said, the investigation is moving forward. thank you, david lee. >> thank you. >> greta: and karl rove is standing by to talk more about this breaking news out of boston in a few minutes, but first there is news tonight in the benghazi investigation. the fbi releasing photos of three men all at the scene of the september 11th attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. now almost eight months later the fbi is asking for your help tracking them down. >> all these months later, the fbi finally releases surveillance photos of the suspects. >> the feds say they are now looking for three men who they believe were on the ground of the compound during the attack, and can help move the investigation forward. >> they had these pictures on day one, just like everybody in the media knew about obamacare on day one. instead they blamed the video. >> what sparked the recent
violence was the airing on the internet of a very hateful, very offensive video. >> i'm not talking generally. i'm talking specifically about benghazi, that people have been threatened. not just the state department. people have been threatened at the cia. >> benghazi happened a long time ago. we are unaware of any agency blocking an employee who would like to appear before congress to provide information related to benghazi. >> we're now aware of -- >> she was on tv, right? >> and now she's been in touch with us directly to go about the normal procedure. >> you say she was a liar. >> making false statements that we were -- >> making false statements are lies, right? >> false statements are lying, matt. >> greta: also tonight, republican senators demanding to know the names of the survivors of the benghazi attack, and they are going straight to president obama. senator john mccain is leading the charge, along with senators lindsey graham and kelly ayotte.
joining us senator john mccain. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> you sent a letter directly to the president. you want to know the names of the witnesses, i assume you mean the people on the ground in benghazi. it went out, i think, yesterday. have you heard anything back from the white house? >> no, we haven't, greta. it was interesting, mr. carney saying that no information has been withheld from the congress and the american people. we don't even know the names of the people who were evacuated from the consulate and taken to germany and should have been debriefed immediately and then any illusion about what kind of attack that was, what caused it, would have been dispensed with, and the -- then ambassador rice wouldn't have had to go on national television and say that this was a spontaneous demonstration sparked by a hateful video. as mr. carney said, it's been a long time.
yes, it's been a long time, and we still haven't gotten answers to many questions, including who made up the talking points for ambassador rice to go on all national tv talk shows on that sunday, one of which i was on and was stunned by her comments. so -- and now we understand that the accountability review board that secretary -- then secretary clinton convened is now being investigated by the inspector general about whether they were able to or desired to interview all people involved. >> greta: let me talk about that for a second. i mean, the whole idea was in the very beginning that, the white house didn't want to give out information, the state department, because it was being interviewed -- or being investigated, outsourced to the accountability review board. that was the idea. now we're learning apparently --
correct me if i'm wrong -- that they didn't talk directly to the witnesses, the people with information. is that your understanding? >> that's my understanding, that they didn't even talk directly to them. and at the same time, since we in congress didn't know the names we obviously didn't talk to them. and again, they were taken out the next morning. they knew what happened. and you would think that one person at the cia, or one person at the white house, would have picked up the phone and said, hey, let me talk to one of these people who were in the fight were taken to ramstein, germany, for treatment, to give their depiction of what happened. guess what. they didn't do that. >> greta: i find it a bit curious -- i understand the whole business about ambassador susan rice, going on the talk shows, saying it was a video that provoked, this but apparently that they knew almost immediately, they had a picture of a tunisian, and apparently had pictures that the fbi is now releasing of people on the
ground. so they obviously knew as far as back as september, and you would think that we -- i mean, i don't understand why that information wasn't disseminated earlier, why they were dragging their feet. >> well, i just don't understand why it took them eight months to release these pictures. i mean, that's another explanation that i think we should be -- we should be provided with. but again, i also understand -- these are all rumors, and i'm not positive, but we're hearing that people who were eyewitnesses to this, people who knew about whether we could have gotten there in time -- remember, two of these individuals were killed in the last hour of a seven 1/2-hour firefight that people are being bullied, threatened, all that. we don't know if that's true or false. i'm not saying it's true. i'm saying it's an argument for a select committee in congress to investigate all of this, get
to the bottom of it, and get it resolved. >> greta: well, it's been dragging on since last september. now there's a new dimension. vicky tungsten, a lawyer in washington, is having a disagreement, to put it gently with the state department. i've posted all of it on greta wire. people can see the different communications. she says that the spokesperson at the state department was incompetent or lying because he said he knew of no attorney requests when he knew very well -- this is an email she wrote me tonight -- he knew very well that congressman isa asked for a process to clear lawyers and dos had not responded, and characterized it as attorney request to shoot it down, make her the straw person. she says, it's not possible he was mischaracterizing my statements, meaning hers, but did so with intent. now a lawyer is she's trying to get a clearance to talk to her clients to look at classified, and essentially saying the state
department is standing in her way, mischaracterizing what she said, essentially making her out to be the liar, and she says she's not the liar. >> well, i don't know the details of that back and forth, but i think i would have a tendency to side with her in the respect that since the white house wouldn't even -- or the administration -- would not even give us the names of the people who were the survivors who were taken to germany. the house apparently next week is going to have a hearing on this. i hope that clears up some of these questions. but one thing i'd like to mention, i am hearing from the families of these people, these four brave americans who were killed. and acc sure you, they are not happy. they do deserve answers. >> greta: does the president have the authority -- i assume does he. i'm going to ask you just to double-check. does the president have the authority to order that the names of the witnesses, those people on the ground, be turned over to congress so congress can
do its job, its congressional obligation to investigate? can the president do whe what yu asked in that letter? >> wouldn't that be routine when they said they would cooperate completely with congress? why should it require presidential attention. i mean, it just would be natural if they're cooperating to say, yes, there's the people, here's the people that were there, were in the action. >> greta: what i don't understand, i understand you can't subpoena the president, i realize you're in the minority party in the senate, but for the life of me i can't understand why the house of representatives wasn't more aggressive, issuing subpoenas, demanding people come to capitol hill with information. i don't understand why the republicans weren't more aggressive just to get the facts. >> well, i hope you'll have darrell issa on, handling this, i think having a hearing next
wednesday. i believe. i'm not positive about that. i think he'll tell you a lot of the efforts he's made. and mike rogers as well. i think it's obvious in the senate we haven't pursued it very vigorously. >> greta: what do you think the president -- when the press conference, when the president said he didn't know about efforts to try to interview -- any efforts to sort of block people from interviewing the survivors? what did you think about that? >> i think he's not -- either not well briefed or should have been, and should have been more involved in it, because it's a little embarrassing when a president of the united states says something that really isn't very logical. >> greta: senator, thank you, sir. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: now to tonight's hot button issue on gretawire.com. why didn't the fbi release the photos of the men at the benghazi consulate about six or seven months ago? was it an attempted cover-up or
are there legitimate investigative reasons? go to gretawire.com and vote in our poll. this is a fox news alert. there's more on tonight's breaking news out of boston. the marathon was not the original target of the terror attack, and sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev told investigators the bombs came together quicker than expected, so they decided to bomb the marathon. they had plans for july 4th. karl rove joins us. welcome, karl. >> good to see you, greta. >> greta: a lot of people are unhappy the university of massachusetts at dartmouth is not releasing information, documents about grades, who got public money for education, citing privacy. >> yeah. at the same time mass bay community college and bunker hill community college released the same kind of information,
believing it was entirely within their prerogative to do so. so we have of university of dartmouth, university of massachusetts at dartmouth, protecting, quote, the privacy of the suspects, and two other colleges saying, no, the law doesn't require us to do this. i think the two community colleges are doing the appropriate thing here. the university of massachusetts at dartmouth looks like it's covering up. the information is going to come out. let it out. >> greta: you know, it's fees, i have a very unpopular opinion, but i agree with the university not to disclose it. the law says not to. i think they're guilty. i believe they're guilty. but they still haven't been found guilty. the information isn't beyond the reach, because the u.s. attorney's office can merely seek a grand jury indictment and get for it investigative reasons, or i imagine the statehouse in massachusetts, if they want to do some sort of investigation about how funds are used, they could do it. it's their by subpoenas. i think it's just us in the media, we can't get it, and we're complaining. >> yeah. well, maybe so. look, i do think things like were they on government aid, how
much government aid did they get, it's a matter of public concern. it's not their records, their personal grades and so forth. it is were taxpayer monies given to these individuals in order to allow them to attend the universities? the community colleges i think are right in revealing the information. i don't think the university does itself any good by hiding it. >> greta: one of them, azamet tazhayakov, came into this country in january on an expired student visa, and we just let him in, no questions asked. >> yeah, yeah. look, this is one of the problems we have in our current immigration system. you know, most of americans think that the illegal immigrants among us, you know, all swam across the rio grande river or trudged across the deserts in the southeastern units. in reality, 40 to 50% of the people here illegally came here legally on a visa, then overstayed their visa.
absolutely. this is a problem of our -- highlights a problem in our current immigration laws. weon't have the systems in place to allow us to track the comings and goings of these people. once they get in a place, where they've either overstayed their visa, or in the case of these individuals, they violated the provisions of their visas by no longer being in school. their colleges or universities had an obligation to report that to immigration authorities, and immigration authorities had an obligation to move those people out of the country immediately. this is a big problem in our broken system, one of the reasons we need to comprehensivively reform it from top to bottom. >> greta: indeed. apparently the members of the board didn't talk to the people on the ground in benghazi.
didn't talk to everybody on the ground in benghazi. no big deal, or is this a big deal? >> big deal. potentially big deal. the review board gave a whitewash. it had some respected individuals on it, but they clearly didn't do the kind of in-depth job we needed to have done. you know what's appalling, we don't know a lot of things. senator mccain touched on some of them. we already know there were a number of requests in the months leading up to 9/11 of last year by the ambassador, saying there was insufficient security in the region, over the facilities, and the state department turned him down for the additional assistance. we know from the testimony of the secretary of defense, leon panetta, and the chairman of the joint steeves of staff that they told the president of the united states at 5:00 in the afternoon, and that was the last contact they had with him about this until the next day. we know the president did not spend time in the situation room, did not call the libyans
and told them they had an obligation to protect our facilities. he did not call them that night. we know that u.s. military were dispatched from tripoli to benghazi, first of all, told to go back and change out of their uniforms, then when they arrived at the benghazi were stuck. we know all of these things. that's really, really all bad. >> greta: you know, karl, it's absolutely obscene, we have four americans dead, obscene that they don't talk to the eyewitnesses on the ground. >> oh, absolutely. >> greta: what kind of investigation is that? if you don't talk to the very eyewitnesses with firsthand information. >> yeah. look, we also know that there were wounded who came back to the united states, kept away from the media, anyone in congress. senator mccain alluded to them. they were flown out of libya to germany, brought back to the united states. they were -- they were -- nobody knew where they were. they were hidden apparently at bethesda naval under false names so nor the press or members of
congress could get at them. what is the administration hiding? i think jay carney made a huge mistake this week. he basically signaled to members of the press that a cover-up was underway. when he said, oh, that's old news -- >> greta: "that happened a long time ago." >> that was a clear message to the media, boys and girls, we want you to go along with us on this, we want to bury it, and i think it's going to have the opposite reaction, saying to people in the mainstream media this may be worthy of our attention. >> greta: indeed and the horrible fox news channel trying to get the facts. they're so awful. anyway, karl, thank you. >> you bet. >> greta: straight ahead, majority leader harry reid uses the term "train wreck" in an interview about obamacare. we have it on tape. plus, much more what harry reid said. that is next. also disturbing new information tonight in the disappearance of the michigan mother that we have been reporting on. a witness saw something just before the young woman vanished. that witness is here coming up. plus, he's house majority whip

>> greta: a fox news alert, right now a wildfire burning out of control in southern california. you're looking at live pictures. the fire forcing the evacuation of homes and a university. the flames broke out this morning along u.s. 101, about 50 miles northwest of los angeles. gusty santa ana winds are spreading the fire, more than 10 square miles are charred, but there are no reports of injuries or houses burning. thousands of students were evacuated from california state university channel island. firefighters are battling this blaze from the air and ground. stay with fox news channel for the very latest on this breaking news. and now, did senate majority leader harry reid slam obamacare, the law he pushed through? during a radio show, the democratic leader admits with comments made by his colleague, max baucus. >> max said, unless we implement this properly, it's going to be a train wreck, and i agree with
him. >> so we're not spending enough money, implementing it properly, in your opinion? >> yes. here's what we have right now, j.d. we have the menu menu, but don'e a way to get to the menu. >> greta: did senator reid really say, "train wreck"? >> he wants to give cover to his colleague, max baucus. harry reid is sincere, if the law isn't implemented properly, it's -- >> greta: who is he putting the blame on? >> he's trying to turn it aroung the administration enough funds for implementation, trying to make it an attack on the gop. it's true the administration is having trouble with creative accounting to get this done, and congress hasn't been able to
grant them more funds. i don't know if harry reid can say this for too much longer. seems like a weak point. >> greta: october 1st, the exchanges are supposed to be set up. when the law was passed, the expectation was the states would seset them up. now about 26 states are saying the feds have to set them up. >> yes. >> greta: they don't have the money for it? >> that's right, they don't have the money for it, and they're trying to pull it from other parts of the federal health department, other parts of obamacare, because the states are allowed to take as much money as they want, but the federally ones, that wasn't anticipated when the law was written. >> greta: how come they can't get money from one pocket to open the white house tours, how come with sequestration they can move money around for the healthcare to get it ready for the federal exchanges? >> the laws are written in funny
ways. they aren't necessarily accounting experts. hhs says we need more money, that the public understands the laws, that the exchanges are ready to launch the coverage. people are worried about it. >> greta: when senator baucus use the word "train wreck" huge? >> oh, huge. they don't think the white house is doing enough to edg educate e public. >> greta: is it expected they'll be ready october 1st? >> we'll have to wait and see. >> greta: coming up, could u.s. soldiers face court martial over their religion? tonight the pentagon fighting a religious battle. and frank underwood, the ruthless politician in "the house of cards." now actor kevin spacey tweeting

>> greta: it would be wise to sort this one out. nice to see you. a michigan mother vanished working the late shift alone at a gas station. tonight a man says he saw a man approach jessica heeringa. what did the man do? the witness joins us. christian, tell me the last time you saw this woman. >> i saw her roughly a couple hours before apparently she disappeared. >> greta: what did you see? >> i was just filling up after a day of work. i actually work about 300 or 400 feet from the actual gas station. i was just filling up. had a little conversation. i went outside, and jessica was going out there to fill the receipt tape at the pump. a van pulled up to the pump bays, started having a conversation with her. he had no intention of buying
gas. he wanted to chitchat, kind of flirty conversation on the spot instead of going into the actual gas station, waiting for her there. it seemed weird to me, because she was trying to do her job, and this guy came over and started talking to her. >> greta: all right. did you see the van leave? >> i did not. i saw the van pull into the front of the gas station, then go inside like he was going to make a purchase. what struck me as strange is the fact that he just decided out of nowhere to just start having this conversation with her. the tape had actually gotten away from her at that point. she was chasing it down. you could see he was trying to work, do her job, and this guy had no recognition for the fact she was just doing her work, that this was inappropriate to be doing this at this time. >> greta: the reason that your observation came forward, that was at 8:50, 10:50 to 11:10, she disappeared, and then the surveillance tape that was released had a gray minivan, and the suggestion is this maybe is
a person who might know something, right? >> yeah. if anything, it's a peculiar behavior that kind stuck out. when the police asked if they had seen anything peculiar, it stuck out in my mind assist something be out of the ordinary. it was a silverish-gray, typical minivan-looking vehicle, fit that description, and definitely peculiar behavior. >> greta: christian, thanks. sooner or later, i hope there's good news on this story, because it's about six nights. thank you, christian. >> thank you. >> greta: an american in huge trouble in north korea. ambassador john bolton is here next. and a case you've never seen like, this the case of the itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny bikini. worry. the judge's ruling minutes away. from dry mouth more so.

>> greta: tonight american kenneth bea sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in a north korean prison. he is a tour operator and washington state resident. former ambassador john bolton joins. good evening, sir. now what are we going to do? >> this is very serious. this is not a case like the two young ladies, the tv producers who were apprehended by the north koreans sometime back working for al gore. this gentleman is accused by the north koreans of one of the worst crimes against the north korean state you can imagine, which is helping north koreans escape from this 23 million-person prison camp. if people could get out, as people escape from eastern europe at the end of the cold war, it would threaten the regime and bring it down. i think the north korean erious about this. i think this man is in deep
trouble. and i don't doubt at that north koreans will try to use him as a bargaining chip as they have with so many others. but the cost this time is going to be very high. >> greta: let me turn to the investigation of benghazi. the state department, the ig, inspector general, is apparently reviewing the accountability review board that investigated the events of 9/11 in benghazi. one of the allegations is that the review board failed to interview key witnesses who had asked to provide their accounts of the benghazi attacks to the panel. that's an allegation. i don't know if that's indeed true or not. if the accountability review board didn't talk to people firsthand who wanted to talk, that would be very bad. >> well, it is an extremely serious allegation. you know, i've been at the state department in a number of different administrations, and i've been trying to think through why the inspector general would be reviewing an arb like this. i've never heard of any kind of
investigation like this before. the state department says, well, the inspector general is reviewing all of the arbs, something like 18 to 20 of them. frankly that doesn't make sense either, unless there's something in this benghazi investigation that -- that tripped the inspector general to get into it. so i think congress next week has got a lot more questions now to answer. why was the state department inspector general spun up about this? were people denied the ability to testify to the arb? and, by the way, fundamentally, getting right to the real truth of this, what did these individuals who were on the ground in libya actually see and do? they're the ones with the most important information. forget the bureaucrats. if the administration really has nothing to hide, let them testify. what could they possibly be afraid of? >> greta: see, what i don't understand, ambassador pickering, admirable mullen on
the board, but -- if this is true, i find it hard to believe that people who have firsthand knowledge, who want to testify, i find it hard to believe that they would say, no, we don't want to talk to you. i think it's a serious enough allegation we need to find out whether it's true or not. >> yeah. i think only congress will be in a position to do this. i mean, my understanding is that sometimes the arb altogether interviewed witnesses. sometimes it was only one or two members. sometimes people were just interviewed by the staff because their experiences were peripheral to the investigation. none of that shocks me particularly. that just sounds like a sensible way to proceed. >> greta: that would be okay, wouldn't it? >> yeah, that sounds fine. the question is whether they simply didn't want to hear individuals.
and was this decided at the staff level or by somebody else? i think the state department now is caught up wrapped up around the axle here. i don't think they can sort this out. i think congress needs to do it. >> greta: we need quick answers, trying to put this mess behind us on this review board, as to lit happened or not. ambassador, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: straight ahead, he stars as house majority whip frank underwood on "house ofex cards." you'll see the photo kevin spacey tweeted next. so i can react in real-time. plus, my local scottrade office is there to help. because they know i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. i'm with scottrade.
