3:00 am
well, hey there. good morning. it is sunday, october the 6th, 2013. i'm anna coyman. we could begin with a fox news alert. america strikes back in two stunning raids. navy s.e.a.l.s. catching the person responsible for the 1998 bombing. secondly, sneaking into somalia. we'll tell you how it all went down straight ahead. the government shutdown entering day 6 this morning. the president will only compromise once the president is back up and running. a new debt ceiling passes. what kind of negotiation is that? we'll tell you. you remember this? a car pulls up to the drive through with no one at at wheel?
3:01 am
well, it's just in time for hallowe halloween. that very same prankster is back, and i love the new one, by the way. foxx a "fox & friends" begins right now. oh, good morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. welcome in to "fox & friends" on this sunday morning. hope to have a great show this morning. we have a jam packed show. what unfolded yesterday in the middle east in two separate raids. we'll get to right now. >> it's a fox news alert. staging two raids. in. >> in libya, the terrorist and mastermind behind the 1998 u.s. embassy bombings has been captured. he'll be brought back to the u.s. for trial here. he had a $5 million bounty on
3:02 am
his head. navy s.e.a.l.s. sneaking into somalia. they caught an al shabaab member. >> the question is what can we take away from the dual rates. thank you for joining us. >> what do these add up to? >> take pickically speaking, these were very successful missions. mission number one in libya shows us we can arrest or eliminate an al qaeda inside foreign lands and overseas and this is a message to al qaeda leadership. operation in somalia tells us we can be very fast, few days after the strike in kenya in responding to somalia. these at the tactical level are important operation is about the global strategy. what are we doing on the global
3:03 am
strategy level? >> what are we doing in somalia. al shabaab is an extension of al qaeda. >> somalia has become a hub for jihadists not just operated in somalia but in kenya. there are somali americans playing in somalia. that's becoming, guess what, the next afghanistan where international terrorists are gathering. >> with the attacks in 1998 what happened and the mall massacre leaving americans dead, what are we taking away from this? is this keeping us more safe in america? >> secretary of state kerry said that we going to do a lot of these operations and that's how the war on terror or the threat would end. i agree that these operations are very important.
3:04 am
this is one part of the movement but there's another part we're not doing. more terrorists in egypt, tunisia, and syria and iraq. yes, we are eliminating heads of al qaeda, but at the same time thousands of jihadists are being produced in all of these countries. >> yesterday john kerry said they can run but not hide. we'll continue to bring them to justice with more hopes that these activities will stop. he's right about the running part. we attempted to get the top guy in somalia and apparently he got away. we got the lower level guy. >> ware actually successful when we pin down winter or list or two terrorists. in world war ii we had one or hundreds every day and every week. the idea of winning war on al qaeda or the war on terror, it's
3:05 am
not going to win this war. what we need to do is at the same time while we are putting pressure on these leaders to have different policies in the middle east across the board. >> so, i mean, one thing these raids teach us is that it's possible for u.s. forces to drop into libya surgically and apprehend dterrorists. why haven't we done that to the murder remembers in benghazi. we know there were ten training centers that were involved in the attack against the consulate. we're not anymore in a war against the terrorist. we are in a justice or police operation against some individuals. you're right. we can but we're not. >> we're haeg that al libya is in a secure place outside of libya and he will be brought to
3:06 am
new york for a trial. >> that's the unfortunate side of this. instead of having a detention center for these enemy combatants, now we will introduce them to our legal system. you know what that meanings at the end of the day. >> walid fhares, no one better to analyze this. thank you. >> thank you. >> six minutes after the hour. we're going to get to other stories making headlines. at this hour we begin with a fox news alert. sad news out of southern afghanistan. four u.s. soldiers have died. they were hit by an i.e.d. in kandahar province overnight. new york city police releasing leasing new photos of a third person wanted for questioning in the road rage assault of an suv driver. police are looking for this man. they say he's a person of interest in the case. yesterday cops confirmed a police detective to be an off duty officer has been placed on
3:07 am
leave pending investigation. they want to know why it took him four days to come forward about the scene from this incident. this comes as we were okay. the woman said she was waiting for conditions to improve before finding her way home. not even the government shutdown could keep navy and air force away from trying to win the commander in chief. air force ahead at the half but navy came on turning on their run game in the third quarter.
3:08 am
the midship men took the lead and never looked back winning 28-10. those are your headlines. just days after those snow and tornadoes tear through the planes, a tornado touched down in tennessee. emergency crews in louisville, kentucky, rescued people from flash flooding. these photos were posted on twitter. >> more than five inches of rain in a tum couple of hours. >> i thought you were going to say up to half a foot. >> you can add. >> little slow on math in the morning. >> i know. all that storm that we saw the day before in and across parts of the dakotas and wyoming, the snow mostly gone but the front moving off to the east bringing severe weather. we had what is barely hanging on. karen as a tropical storm. now it's a tropical depression.
3:09 am
it means winds are lower down to 30 miles an hour. it's even rough to find that 30-mile-an-hour wind in there. there's a track on this. sometime in the next few hours the national weather service will stop monitoring this. mostly we'll see a little bit of rip currents right across the central gulf threat. another day to stay out of the ocean if you're in that area. in fact, most of the life guards won't let you get into the wa interest acro water across that area. we're not seeing the big storm that we had there. this is the front. it's a slow mover. it's not going anywhere too quickly. we'll see it chug off to the coast. out across the west, very windy conditions again today although not as bad, i don't think, in southern california as it was yesterday. we still have more red flag warnings and high sea warnings here. it will bring your temperatures
3:10 am
way down and rain into southern california for the first time in a long time. >> thank you, rick. >> you bet. the president has added to our knowledge of the negotiations over the government shutdown. he told an interviewer yesterday he's willing to negotiate with the republicans but not until the shutdown ends and the new debt ceiling passes, in other words, i'll negotiate as soon as my opponents do everything i want. >> which doesn't make sense because he said it another interview he didn't think the two would be lumped together. october 17th is creeping up pretty quickly. >> i would say. >> the way that government is moving, do you think these won't be linked together. >> isn't it an advantage to the obama administration? we're focusing on the shutdown and the federal government appearing to inflict as much
3:11 am
pain on the american people as possible. the blame is focusing on the republican gop. >> there are other kmcommentato, george wheel, is saying the administration is loving the shutdown. >> of course. >> he's sitting there with his arms crossed. he has no reason to end the shutdown. it's a self-inflicted wound on the gop. >> it is good for the obama administration. congressman tim ryan, former staffer for trim traficant, very famous senator, who told his colleagues they're invited to a tai chi healing session. major corporations, hospitals, professional sports teams offer
3:12 am
their own teams to make better decisions. >> our own boss, rupert mourdock, this is something he's done in our organization here. he used our boss's name in an e-mail to the daily caller to say this is what we need to do to lower the stress in our offices. it does work. schools have used it to great effect to reduce violence. what does this say about congress and congressional aids? you saw mood and morale stats come out yesterday about how the shutdown is affecting the office staff of congressional aids and members of congress. it's miserable there right now that they would need meditation to feel good about themselves. >> and also tai chi. as a native of southern california i smell incense wafting. >> i'm totally open about the yoga and meditation thing. weigh in at home. what do you think in is this a waste of time, energy, effort? is this good because it's being
3:13 am
offered on the bipartisan level. >> what's your favorite pose? >> take a picture. >> the only time i saute chi on the beach is when i lived on the beach. >> there's quite a bit of tai chi. >> i'm feeling calm. maybe we should use that this morning. coming up here on the show. it's a cold hard fact when gitmo prisoners are released they go back to their prisoner ways. why are they releasing this al qaeda prisoners? a man walks into a bar and opens fire. what happens next? we've got the video you've got to see. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

guantanamo bay prisoner and enemy combatant being released to the general public for being too mentally ill? that's right. a federal judge ordering ibrahim to go free. joining us to weigh in is former pentagon person j.d. gordon. nice to see you, j.d. >> thanks, clayton. >> let me get this straight. he's going free because his mental illness is no threat? he's too mentally ill? >> clayton, the only thing i think that's crazier than releasing him is the prisoner himself. he fought against the soviets and afghanistan. he's got machine gun training, mortar training and he's schizophrenic.
3:18 am
schizophrenia is characterized by pair annoy a and delusion. a jihadist is going to be let go because he's too crazy? >> we've heard of mass killings in this country linked to these types of mental illnesses. to say that he's then no threat doesn't really wash with me. >> it doesn't. you know, absolutely. i was the pentagon spokesman. i worked on guantanamo issues for four years. mental illness and guantanamo detainees go hand in hand. perfectly sane people don't become suicide bombers, they don't crash planes into buildings, they don't do that. this guy is a walking nightmare. this detainee interest, he's from sudan, in his early 50s. i would think he would go right back to terrorism.
3:19 am
almost 200 out of 600 when they are residential released from gitmo go back to terrorism. i think this is putting the world in danger. >> the recidivism rate is high up to 30%. beyond the mental illness, he's sworn an oath to al qaeda, loyalty to osama bin laden in 1994. combat training back to the 1980. he resisted interrogators and he taught other detainees resistance techniques while he's detained. he's being released. >> it's terrible. he was arrested at the border of pakistan. he was arrested with 30 bin laden body guards. he was a core guy. a key guy to bin laden and now obama wants to release him because he's crazy? a lot of the detainees are
3:20 am
crazy. that doesn't mean they're a danger. we see people who are mentally ill commit violence all the time. i think the president is putting us in danger. i think it's a reckless policy that he has on guantanamo. i have to ask, why is he doing it? why is he putting this ideology to appease the far left out there. that's very concerning. >> j.d. gordon, retired navy kmamder, thank you for joining us. >> thanks, clayton. coming up here on the show, the government shutdown sending 800,000 federal employees home, but how badly do we really need them? our next guest shows that why cutting back may be what we need. vets storming the world war ii memorial to get. and then going home. here's whast. ♪ stand beside her and guide her to the light above ♪

3:25 am
government spending is in fact on the rise. in the last five years it has increased about 25%. during the shutdown 800,000 workers have been viewed nonessential to stay home. is this a wake-up call to prove we're better off with less government. >> if you're one of these 800,000 federal employees staying home, this is affecting your life. by the way, the congress voted to make certain they are paid. how has this affected the rest of us? what does this tell us about how much government we need? >> your previous segment was about obama making it as painful as upopossible, letting out viot press ners, letting out violent immigrants. he's doing that to ginn up pain from a shutdown that otherwise most likely formost people
3:26 am
wouldn't exist. >> we're calling this a shutdown. i want to put up on the screen the parts of government that are still operating. this sort of looks like the government most people want, 911 and emergency service, u.s. postal services, existing social security benefits, military and air traffic controllers, food stamps and unemployment. isn't that along with, say, paving the roads, pretty much what government ought to be doing in the first place, no? >> 83% of the government is still open. this is a very partial shutdown. a lot of those things i would argue are better off done by state and local governments rather than the federal government. yes, the vast majority of government is still open. again, that speaks to why barack obama is trying to close the florida bay. 110,000 miles of open ocean he says are closed to fishing because of the shutdown. it's why he's closing the world war ii memorial. it's why he's closing privately funded entities like mount
3:27 am
vernon, george washington's house. he's trying to gin up pain where otherwise we wouldn't notice the government was closed, the vast majority of americans. the only thing i'd like to do is get a bill out of congress that lets us keep our taxes for the time government is closed. >> the message the white house is sending to the rest of the country, unless you fully fund the government at current levels you can't live a happy, productive life. this is an exercise in pr propagan propaganda. >> it is. they have raised spending by $900 billion. 2.9 trillion to 3.8 trillion in five years. sequester cut it back 85 billion out of 900 billion. they did all sorts of things to make that look much worse than it is. we don't need to spend 23% of the gdp at the federal level. it's completely out of control. >> seaton motley joining us. thank you.

since then it's really picked up steam. for many, many years this was not deemed offensive at all and people like myself have rooted for the redskins their whole life. we've only known it as a sports nickname. it's very important to me professionally and i've never considered it offensive. >> of course, the fans of the team are honoring the name. i mean, they, of course, love the redskins. do you have any clue why the president at a time when the government is shut down, the middle east is on fire, felt compelled to weigh in on something like this? >> in his defense, i know he was asked the question by the ap. the most ideal situation would have been him saying, well, i've got more important things to think about, but with that said, i think he is his use of the word sizeable is really where the big question is and that's always the sticking point to me. it's like, what do you mean by sizeable? what do you mean that a large majority of people you think are
3:47 am
offended by this term? i think that's where the gray area is with the term redskins. nobody knows how many people are offended by it. i personally think it's a minority of native americans. there was a study done in 2004 commissioned by the university of pennsylvania that said 90% of native americans do not think it's offensive. >> right. >> they don't care. so i think it's really where you want to draw the line in terms of defining it as offensive. >> right. mike, the associated press, you mentioned them asking the questiey reported on a poll that found nearly four out of five americans do not want the name changed and they're not -- the washington redskins not the only one. we have the atlanta braves, kansas city chiefs. why are people calling for this now, especially when a native american group came up with that logo themselves, didn't they? >> well, yes, exactly. there was a man named walter blacky wedsel, chairman of black
3:48 am
feet nation in montana in the '50s and '60s. he was the president of the national congress of ind be yans. he knew his way around washington and he knew jfk. in the early '70s he collaborated with the redskins on forming the logo that exists today. he showed the redskins several photos of indian chiefs. he said i'd like to see an indian chief on your helmet and that's how we have the logo of today. in fact, shortly before his death in 2003 he was quoted in "the washington post" as saying i think it's a small group of radicals that are opposing this nickname. >> very quickly. my name is carlson? any chance that i can get the minnesota vikings to change their name and get a cash settlement from them? >> that's a good point. there are other sports nicknames that you could find offensive. the cleveland indians.
3:49 am
the atlanta braves with the tomorrow mohawk shop. the minnesota vikings pillaging the coast of europe. all of those nicknames one way or another you could make a case for. they're known as sports nicknames. >> as a swede i'm very offended. mike, thanks very much for putting this in perspective. >> thank you very much for having me on. 49 minutes after the hour now. are you waking up this morning feeling a little bit stressed because you have to head back to work tomorrow? if so, you're not alone. there are some ways to beat the sunday blues. the tips next. then there were supposed to be 10,000 people packing this field to honor military families. instead, it's empty. the event was canceled. you can thank the shutdown for that. got details coming up ♪ it's a good time, to be out there soaking up the sunshine ♪ people come up to me at parties all the time and ask,

3:54 am
too much work that they have to deal with. they're not -- they may be bringing their work home with them, but there are definitely some challenges. people are feeling depressed and the sunday blues is like a chronic condition, that they don't want to go to work on monday. >> used to hit for me around 8:00 p.m. on sunday night. you used to feel that last football game, got to go to work on monday. you have some tips to walk us through on how to stop this from happening. you say prepare on friday so go back a few days? >> yes. you need to think about when you're leaving the office on friday and you're winding down your work week, really take some time to plan. wrap things up. even if you have a big project, don't run out the door at 5:00. take some time and get yourself in order so that when you leave on friday, that you can really try to disconnect and walk away from it and you're in good shape when you come back on monday morning. >> when you say disconnect on weekends, how fully do you need to disconnect? >> you know, you do need to disconnect. your weekends are really your
3:55 am
time to, you know, re-energize and spend your time with family and friends and hopefully leave work back at the office, disconnect from it so that when you come back on monday you will have a fresh start. >> what if you host a weekend show? >> that's our friday. >> we were talking about that. you might feel this way on tuesday nights when you're coming back on wednesday. whatever it is for you, it's taking that time on your weekends to really have time for yourself and for your family. >> you also mention that we don't just need to disconnect but we need to budget our time for the next week so it doesn't feel so overwhelming. you're not going to want to mow the lawn and scrub the floors but you won't want to do it in the middle of the week either. >> exactly. if you don't take the time to get things done you need to in the weekends, that might carry over into the work week and you're starting to feel stressed or maybe even overwhelmed, depressed that you have all these things that you didn't get done on the weekends. maybe you left work on friday with too much on your plate. so it is about budgeting your
3:56 am
time and making the most of that. >> if you do tips 1 through 3 and those don't work. your fourth tip is to find a better job? >> if you're still feeling like you don't even want to get out of bed on a monday morning or you're really overwhelmed, you need to think about are you in the right job? i always tell people, you need to love what you do or at least like it and be passionate about it. if you don't have that, it might be time to find something better. >> that is such good advice. >> to think about what is it that you really want to do. what career would make you -- make your heart sing or make you get up in the morning and feel good about wanting to go to work. >> and not have the alcohol, tucker. >> control while you still have the job, too, so that searching work can be stressful as well. >> thank you. >> thanks, jonie. >> thanks, guys. well, america strikes back. two stunning raids overnight and this morning the mastermind of the 1998 embassy bombings is in custody. details at the top of the hour. and a gang of motorcyclists beats up on a dad in front of

"fox & friends" hour two starts right now. good sunday morning, everyone. welcome to "fox & friends" on this sunday morning. do you guys ever feel like you wish you could lose weight but you wish you could do it in an hour on your lunch break? >> what woman doesn't want to do that? >> while eating pizza. >> we're going to show you a piece of technology. we'll bring the machine into the studio. doctors show us how it works. it's all the craze in brazil. put this machine on you and you freeze the fat. >> it's for people who are at or near ideal body weight. i think the pizza is probably a bad idea. what's surprising is it's more popular with the men than the ladies. >> they go in for their lunch break and go, hey, i'm going back to work. >> sign me up, baby.
4:02 am
we do need to get to a fox news alert this sunday morning. american specsal forces have two daring raids targeting al qaeda operatives in africa. >> in libya the terrorist and mastermind behind the 1998 u.s. embassy bombings has been captured. the pentagon says he will be brought back to the united states and stand trial. he's been on the fbi's most wanted lift. he had a $5 billion bounty on his head. hours earlier, navy s.e.a.l.s getting their target for the mall massacre in kenya. no american troops were injured in either raid. how big a threat of these africa-based terror networks? are the terrorists on the run for long or are they still in this fight? joining us is ryan morrow, national security analyst. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> when secretary kerry says
4:03 am
they are on the run no matter where you go we will find you, is that true? we know that in fact we went into somalia and tried to get the top guy in this network and he ran away and we couldn't find him so is that true? are they on the run? are we really clamping down on al qaeda? >> although i have criticisms of the overall strategy against radical islamic terrorist groups, when it comes to al qaeda, the administration has been pretty strong. this is an example of that. in somalia, even if they didn't get the top guy, the leader of al shabaab who is directly threatening the united states, he has talked about attacking us on the homeland, just the simple fact that we had actionable intelligence, which means a spy on the inside or intercepted phone call is very important to their psyche. what that shows is they may have a trader in their midst. what that shows is according to witnesses right after they did that they did a house-by-house search.
4:04 am
>> al shabaab did? >> yes. >> what's behind the timing of these missions? >> they're saying that it didn't happen at the exact same time out of any other reason other than they had the same opportunity at around the same time, about you it could mean that the two groups were coordinating and the two groups were communicating. if you go after one leader and as a result of an intercepted phone call or courrier that you captured you're going to want to go after both at the same time because they're going to tip each other off. >> you mentioned that al shabaab hasn't attacked us here on the homeland, which is fantastic? are they capable of doing so? >> without a doubt. they have networks here in the united states. they've recruited over 40 americans that we know of into their ranks. this he have an actual infrastructure in the united states because you have to not only radicalize these individuals, you have to recruit them, arrange their travel, pay for it. we also know that they're smuggling operatives across the mexican border. there was an individual arrested in virginia that admitted to the fact that he had smuggled over 270 somalis into the country. he was working for al shabaab.
4:05 am
we can only imagine what these people were like. >> that's not evenness because church groups have brought so many church groups to this country and resettled them into minnesota and maine. is the fbi concerned that those refugee communities in the u.s. pose a threat to the united states? >> oh, without a doubt. because of the trend of radicalization in the communities, although most somali americans obviously are not terrorists, you have a significant number that are not assimilating into american society. that's one of the first indicators of an extremist ideology. when you reject western beliefs and culture, you're putting a bubble around yourself. that's where radicalism breeds. i'm very excited about the individual that we captured in libya because he lived in iran for about ten years and the obama administration says that al qaeda and iran struck a secret deal where iran is allowing al qaeda operatives to move in and out of their country. this individual will allow us to
4:06 am
understand that relationship more. >> talked about actionable intelligence which is what led to these missions. there are those who say wait a second, actionable intelligence. we have photos of the guys who went into benghazi and attacked the consulate there. we know where some are. we have actionable intelligence about where they are positioned. why don't we have a similar navy s.e.a.l. raid into those areas as well? >> because of the cost-benefit analysis. it's not worth the risk of putting our guys on the ground and into harm's way for those individuals. they would rather take a more patient approach and have them arrested by the libyan government if it ever happens. agree that i'm getting frustrated with how long that's taking. the strategy -- >> wait a minute. that does wash with me at all. if you think about the gun fight. landed on a beach in somalia, navy s.e.a.l.s did yesterday. landed on a beach in somalia, go into this gun fight of a town, hot bed of a town. it goent get hotter than that? you're putting our men and women
4:07 am
in harm's way there. what's the difference? >> right. well, the difference is is that part of it's situational. in some cases it's -- they may have a militia around them and then sending in a small unit is going to be extremely dangerous. in this case in somalia you're going after the top leader there. i mean, that's a big prize. they would argue that's worth it. >> so we're basically saying you attack a mall in kenya and we're going to find you but if you kill our ambassador, you know, maybe we'll get around to it? >> i agree with that criticism because we have to go after all of them especially because if you take out the head then another guy replaces them. so it's very important to let anyone that's involved in an operation like that know that we're going to hunt you down regardless of your rank. so an example of that incomplete strategy would be the fact that there's an at kal qaeda affilia called boco garan. they attack churches on weekly bases. they're not listed as a foreign terrorist group officially.
4:08 am
it's an attempt to narrow down the conflict to as little as possible so that we don't have to get involved in a broader conflict. i think it's just not reality. you have to go after all of al qaeda's affiliates. you have to go battle the ideology that drives them. >> is somalia the main focus now? >> africa is becoming more of the main focus but you can't narrow it down to just one country like somalia. for example, the government of ara trey who is run by a guy claiming to be a christian. he's fundsing al shabaab. we've been threatening it since 2009, let's get it done. >> nice to see you this morning. >> nice to see you. eight minutes after the hour. we'll get to some other stories making news headlines this sunday. would he do it with a news alert. sad news out of southern afghanistan. four u.s. soldiers have died. they were hit by an i.e.d. in kandahar province overnight. right now officials not releasing any other details. new york city police releasing new photos of a third

inches of rain in less than 24 hours spells disaster and a whole lot of cleanup for home ones owners. >> it does. this is the same storm that brought record breaking winds across the oregon coast. >> are we going to get it? >> it will taper off. we're still going to get it. it's going to be tomorrow night all across the eastern seaboard. this is where it is now moving just to the east of the mississippi river. it's such a slow mover and that's why we're seeing some of these thunderstorms embedded within it drop a very short amount of rain drop over 6 inches yesterday in louisville. wel see more rain move through there. in addition to this we have a small area today that's under the threat for some severe weather. it's that eastern kind of border of michigan, including detroit and then down almost to the ohio river there. just a little stripe across parts of ohio. tomorrow a little bit farther off to the east. i don't think a big tornado threat. mostly a strong wind and maybe a

little bit of hail. this is what is left of karen. had been tropical storm, now it's tropical depression karen. it will meander off to the east. whatever impacts will be mostly rip currents across the central coast maybe from around new orleans and all the beaches over towards around panama city. the beautiful beaches in the panhandle of florida. a day that you have to stay out of the area. they're not letting people get into the water unless you have a surf board that you're attached to. that's how they'll let you get in there. they'll see that storm track off to the east probably not even being called any kind of a storm by the time we get later on in today. temperature wise, everything is looking warm again across much of the seaboard. enjoy another day. >> you have to be attached to the surf board. >> you have to be attached. that's the only way they'll let you get into the water. that will be your safety device. >> that's got to hurt. surgically removed. >> thanks, rick. obama care is open for business, but you might not be able to sign up. the website is still down for

well, obama care finally rolling out its open enrollment for health insurance exchanges. after a week of hiccups and glitches, what's the final grade? here with the obama care report card is foxbusiness.com
4:17 am
reporter, kate rogers. >> good morning to you. >> you say the grade for obama care will be what? >> incomplete. we don't have enough information about how many people were able to sign up for coverage on both the state and federally run exchanges. >> we got numbers yesterday, 8.6 million people visited the site but we didn't hear how many people were actually able to enroll. judging from what we're seeing on social media, it's been a pretty poor response. people waiting hours online trying to figure out how to make sense of it all. >> they absolutely were. this rollout has been marked by a lot of glitches, error messages and long wait times. the department of health and human services hasn't yet released any figures for how many people were actually able to enroll. open enrollment period sentences ends march 31st, 2014. as we get closer to that period, it's more likely people will show up. one analyst said he wouldn't feel comfortable grading this until he sees how many people have written their check to pay for their monthly premium.

4:25 am
complaining and i think rightly so, understandably so, saying we should have other people be able to come in, other chaplains of other faiths and lead a prayer. that's good. it sticks with the precedence of the court. the supreme court has taken on this case that was brought. this is very interesting. it has brought to the court by an atheist and another woman who i believe she's jewish. they said there should be no prayer whatsoever that offends people or that will cause disagreement. this is magic. a nontheist that says a prayer that won't cause agreement. what is a prayer? it's talking to god. >> that's going to offend somebody automatically? >> of course. i'm so happy the supreme court is taking this on. the results are going to have a big influence on lots of things.
4:26 am
>> that's where we're going to go next. what sort of broader implications will this have for the rest of the country? >> if the supreme court were to say no public prayer whatsoever? why do we have in god we trust on our money, on our dollar bill? why do we have a chaplain for congress? why is it that in a public high school in a small town in kansas they can say a prayer before a football game? this gets right down to the core belief that we've had for all these years in the united states of america that religion is actually not a bad thing, and it's representative of the beliefs and the values of a large number of people in our great country. >> all right. father john, strange story and we'll be watching this. thanks so much. >> thank you very much. >> appreciate it. coming up on the show, they're in the country illegally, but now illegal immigrants allowed to practice law. how does that make any snens. >> you've tried any way and nothing seems to work.

down. 90% of the civilians at the defense department are being furloughed because the defense secretary chuck hagel says there is wiggle room. the law does not permit a blanket recall of all civilians. however, d.o.d. and d.o.j. attorneys concluded that the law does allow the department of defense to eliminate furloughs for employees whose responsibilities contribute to morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members. as military leaders over at the pentagon are trying to soften the shutdown's blow, at the pentagon some lawmakers are trying to do the same thing. yesterday in a saturday session which is very rare the house voted 407 to zero to approve back pay for federal furloughed federal workers. the united states senate has not yet taken up this measure. as for all those employees,

4:46 am
have encountered a lot of problems. we knew that was going to happen. tucker, the real issue is about fairness and how we address the problems we have in this country. my definition of fair is making sure one group isn't treated with more favor than another. when you look at the affordable care act you say, my goodness, 1200 wavers. there are members of congress and the staff and the white house and their staff and everybody else being treated the same way as other americans. are employers getting a break that individuals don't? i said let's take a step back for this. let's do what's right for the american people. this is not a republican issue, a democrat issue, this is a fairness issue. the other problem coming up, we have a debt ceiling. the debt is growing at such a rate and if we don't understand this particular piece of legislation is driving our debt deeper and deeper beyond the point of no return. the rhetoric has been heated. i've seen people with their eyes
4:47 am
bugging out and veins bulging out as they rail against this. we've been able to pass legislation that makes sense for every single american and i look at that and say, please, please, back off. let's make sure we keep working. while we can't get the big piece done, let's get some of the other pieces that are very important to the american people off the board and we've been doing that. >> there is a theme here that i guess i'm confused why republicans aren't saying this out loud more often. the left passes laws that are good for you but that they're not going to abide by. they have gun control and they have armed farms. they want wind but not off their houses in nantucket. they want obama care but their staff shouldn't have to buy into it. that is a bipartisan message that everyone should get behind and you rarely hear people say that. why? >> because it doesn't fit their particular base. that's why i said, tucker. this past week people railing against us passing funding for wic, women, infants and children. we passed things to take care of seniors.
4:48 am
we passed things to take care of veterans. the other side said this is a ploy. republicans are using 2450es people or they're gaming american people. no, if it was good for your side, wouldn't it be good for our side? isn't it good for all sides when we come together on things we agree with and get them passed and get them funded? i look at that. i'm with you. listen, if it was about being fair we would be backing off this right now and say it's not fair. you write a law, you should live by the same laws that you wrote. if it's good for the goose, it's good for the gander. i'm watching these people get wrapped around the axle on things they get emotional about. there's no objectivity to it. there's been a pettiness. the president, this is a i big position. it requires a big person. you can't be petty and you can't be so proud, stubborn proud that you say it's my way or no way. tucker, if you and i had a problem and i said, tucker, let's get together, have lunch, work this out and you came to lunch, tucker, before we get started, let me make one thing

the camera is in while i'm trying to adjust my body. all very rehearsed. it's like rehearsing a dance routine with mathematics. your body's going at 30% the whole time. everything we did -- by halfway through the film everything that i did was slow motion even in between takes. if we were on the wire works, you couldn't be too inverted because then the blood rushes to your face and it doesn't rush to your face in space. >> i can't breathe. i can't breathe. >> is the breathing, is that more acting rather than you actually breathings that heavy because you're spinning? >> the breathing is all acting. we had to pick it up where we left off. i would have to have sound ques. we had to hyperventilate to get back to that level. it was a series of hyperventilating days and post in adr, we had to do the breaths all over again. if i didn't like the way it sounded and it didn't connect, i had to hyperventilate again to get to that point. you didn't have that energy while you were shooting it.
4:55 am
we had some when i was being flung around but not that was consiste consistent. it had to be consistent almost its own character. >> incredible. >> kevin, you said this is worth seeing, five stars out of five. unbelievable. you've seen it three times. you're about to see it for a fourth time. what's the best way to see it once? what's the best way? >> that's the thing is that america has so many options, 2 d, 3 d, 3 dimax. you had to see it in that format. the 3-d is so immerse sieve. you feel like you're in space with bullock and clooney. the imax sound is incredible. you saw that. what did you think of it? >> it was fantastic. when you get the large imax screen that takes up your whole eye vision. i told my mom and dad to see it in 3-d imax. you feel like you're stuck out there. >> you're seeing it for a fourth time, kevin? >> i'm going on tuesday because

fox news alert, brand new information about two american special forces strikes in africa targeting top al qaeda leaders. in libya, the mastermind behind the 1998 embassy bombings in libya has been captured. in the past 15 minutes we have learned that libya's prime minister is now demanding an explanation for this raid. he calls it a kid nang. a statement just released by the pentagon reads this. >> the department of defense acting under military authorities conducted an operation to apprehend long time al qaeda member abu anas al liby. is he currently lawfully detained in a secure law area in libya. >> their target a high level al shabaab operative.
5:03 am
they took helpy fire aavy fire withdraw. they got one of the leading guys in that raid as well. after both of these raids, what do we need to know about what is next for the war on terror, specifically in africa? joining us is senior advisor to the national commission on intelligence and foreign wars, lieutenant colonel tony schaeffer. thanks for joining us. >> thank you for having me on. >> what is the significance of these raids, the broader significance? >> two things. first, this is a long-term war. i was running an operating base focused on this back in the 2002-2003 time frame. this is a continuation of that. what we're seeing here is frankly the morphing of al qaeda. one raid, the raid we got al liby, one of the key conspirators. this new raid against al shabaab in somalia is going against an organization which started in 2006. it has become mature and is something that is a true threat.
5:04 am
this is where i think you're seeing the best of the old world, best of the new world. what we're seeing is a continuation of doing this sort of thing. precision, snatch and grab or targeted operations over the drone operation. this is much more effective. this is what's going to drive fear and dissuade others doing terror attacks against us. >> a couple other things around fear, we had ryan moreau, he said what's good about the al shabaab attack is the intelligence is telling. >> sure. >> we maybe had a spy inside. >> exactly. >> that speaks to our level of intelligence gathering. >> again, this is a target we've been working for the past ten years. i had two detach nlts in kenya working on this target in kenya in the early 2000s. this is good news. we have to look at how this threat is morphing, we have to stay on top of it. in this case in particular, you do a raid, get intelligence. a drone strike doesn't give you that. this is one thing where i'm not
5:05 am
anti-drone, we've overly relied on drones. >> also i want to you ask you, it's been a long time coming, 1998 the connection to liby there to those bombings. >> right. >> it has been a long time coming. what about -- and benghazi. we haven't seen anybody brought to justice for that. is a good strategy to wait this thing out so we get them and can in turn ask them questions and get our own intelligence or should we go ahead and take care of this? >> i this i we've been far too patient with the libyans. they're upset because we did this extraordinary rendition with al liby. this is one thing where the president has finally made the right choice. if we can't get cooperation from local governments, we know they're bad. al liby had $5 million on his head. we need to do it our selves. i'm not saying we should overrely on it.
5:06 am
it's in our best interests to bring these people to justice as best we can as quickly as we can. >> again, if we're willing to respond this decisively, as you said effectively to, say, the kenyan mall bombing, it does raise the question once again why we haven't gone after the suspects in the benghazi cases where we know the names and whereabouts we know. >> that mystifies me. clearly we lost an ambassador, two former navy s.e.a.l.s and a state department representative. there's no reason for us to be hanging back. it's clear especially with the libyan's recent comments, they're only going to cooperate as much as they have to to basz sickically keep us engaged to where we give these people up. we need to be more aggressive. >> you're great. we love having you here on "fox & friends." >> thank you. six minutes after the hour. we have to get to some other news for you this morning. we begin with the fox news alert. sad news out of southern afghanistan. it's where four u.s. soldiers have died. they were hit by an i.e.d. in

5:18 am
refusing to negotiate on either the government shutdown or the debt ceiling and one of the points i want to bring up to secretary lew is the fact that 27 times since 1978, 27 times raising the debt ceiling has been linked by either the republicans or the democrats in congress to some other issues, sometimes related to the budget, sometimes completely unrelated. why is the president deciding to draw this line in the sand this time? we'll talk to him about that. >> chris, are there negotiions going on that we don't know about? or is what we see in the papers pretty much the extent of the communication between the congress -- >> let me put it this way, tucker. if they're going on, not don't we not know about it, i don't know about it. i don't think there are. i think deep down there's nothing going on, among other reasons, because the president has said i'm not going to negotiate. at this point republicans are standing firm on their position, which is that we need to see some changes in obama care and
5:19 am
in the debt. so i really think that, you know, it's not some super secret thing going on that none of us know about. i really think there's no there there as they said. >> chris, you know, at what point is it that the american people are just going to get so fed up with all lawmakers and note just one specific political party? we have a poll that we can show that was recently taken. who do you blame? the republicans, like john boehner, 25%. president obama, 24%? tea partiers, like ted cruz. 17%. 8% democrats, 20%, everybody. with the october 17th deadline looming, you know, and the potential of a default for the first time and all of that, you know, how unpopular is everybody in washington? >> well, your first question was when are they going to start getting fed up with everybody? i was going to say, last wednesday. i think they are. people talk about, well, the
5:20 am
democrats have an advantage. if you add the two democratic numbers together and the two republican numbers, the republicans are slightly less popular. it's not like the republicans and senate democrats are getting off the hook. a lot of people haven't felt the full effect of the shutdown, but i think there's going to be enough blame to go around that everybody will get hit. interestingly enough, it's not just republicans versus democrats, it's also republicans versus other republicans. we're going to talk about that split inside the gop with congressman pete king and congressman tom graves. king has called fellow republicans terrorists and graves, of course, one of the people leading the charge to defund or delay obama care. we'll talk about all of that. and as a special added attraction, it's like the crazy eddie commercial. there's more. george will on the "fox news sunday panel" this sunday. >> thanks. >> bye, guys. coming up here on the show, they're in the country

5:26 am
so i'm a skeptic for two reasons. i'm raised by two atheists but also i'm a physician so we're wired for science. >> right. when is the first time that you saw eric? >> oh, gosh i was one of the last ones. i saw him jumping on my bed from one corner to the next. >> what did he look like? >> looked like his self. >> at what age? >> oh, 20. >> so he died when he was 20 and you saw him at 20? >> uh-huh. >> what do you think he's coming back for? >> i think he's here to help people. here's the deal. this book is very interesting in that he answers so many questions like, what's it feel like to die? what is the afterlife like? >> what does he say? i mean, those are questions that haunt, you know, a lot of people. they lie in bed at night and worry about things like this. what does he say? >> he says that -- in the book he describes his own death in vivid detail, but for everybody their death experience is very
5:27 am
unique. it's based on the belief they created about it when they were alive. now the book also -- he also answers questions like, what's the afterlife like and what's it like to be a spirit? but i think one of the main things -- points he wants to bring across is that when somebody we love dies, they're not gone. they don't happen to have a body, that's it. so it's still your mother, your father, your brother, your sister, your child, and they don't want to be forgotten. they don't. they want that relationship to continue. >> we have a photo we'd like our viewers to see, it's an orb of light essentially. what is it we're looking at? what do you think this is? >> well, we think it's eric following me. i'm going to his bedroom and that orb is him following me. we did an analysis on it, one gentleman brought the gamma, whatever that is, down and saw that it was emitting its own light source, which is
5:28 am
interesting. look, it's moving. it has a comet tail. everything else is still. >> what would you say to people who despite you're saying i'm wired for science, i'm a physician, i was raised by two atheists who say, no way. this is a grieving mother who is trying to make sense of a tragic death. >> it's different because i didn't want to believe. i didn't truly believe until six months ago really. and so it's not like a wishful thinking thing. everybody has seen eric, has been the target of his pranks all over the world, blog members, etc. i didn't want to believe. if i did and i found out it was a horrible joke, that would be like losing him all over again. i couldn't do that. >> dr. medhus, you say this will help grieving parents. ch he can it out if you're interested. thank you so much for your time. >> okay. >> thank you. thanks, anna. take a look at this. a horrifying moment. a man walks into a bar and opens

5:45 am
year since his re-election. the stories that people aren't talking about, the irs story still not solved, benghazi people still talking about it. any time fox news talks about t people want to know, what happened? where are we in that process? remember ed snowden and the whole nsa scandal, no the to mention syria. now you have president obama actually having to cancel a very important trip to an important region, the region in asia where they said the president was going to pivot. now they have to cancel because of a government shutdown? they're dragged down into the muck. a story that i thought was important is that you had the president of brazil cancel a white house state dinner over the nsa spying scandal. you didn't hear anybody talk about it because our fiscal problems here domestically are so acute and washington is so unable to work together. >> talking about the redskins. >> that's right.
5:46 am
the redskins are an important topic. president obama does an interview every single day and i think that's hurting him. >> at what point -- the white house has an interest of prolonging this. at what point does this boomerang? >> i think the quote in the wall street journal on friday from an anonymous but senior administration official because the white house did not deny that somebody actually said that to them, that they were winning in the shutdown so they could just let it keep going. i think that was the moment where people said, all right, everybody's had your fun. a lot of the attention has been on the bases of each party. how does it help president obama with his base? how does the defund piece help the republicans with their base? the problem is, those bases are smaller and smaller. the vast majority of americans across the middle are saying, why can't washington do what we would do in our business? sit down, work it out. you have to fund the government. you have to have some sort of semblance of it. also, you could cut back on spending. i think byron york has done amazing work covering this
5:47 am
shutdown. yesterday his article from "the washington examiner" said 83% of government is still being funded. people hear this and they think this is all political theater. >> it seems like americans are starting to get fed of with it. a new poll by gallup, 41% approve of how the president is doing. 52% now disapprove. at what point do you think both sides will get their heels out of the sand and come to the table? >> well, i think -- i can understand from president obama's standpoint why he's had this position that he's had for a while. however, the debt limit and needing to raise the debt limit to be able to pay america's bills, that happens october 17th. that's the deadline. you're at october 6th. i think that that's where you're going to find in the next 20 days you'll find some sort of ability for them to get together. if i were the white house, i would appoint somebody to be president obama's negotiator so that the headline isn't every
5:48 am
time he goes out i won't negotiate. americans don't like that either. republicans, they're not smelling like roses, but americans are looking at president obama saying, do you even understand the rudimentary principles of negotiation? and there is a split in the congress. the long cans do have the house. there has to be some sort of accommodation but the debt limit is where you'll see -- >> that puts us about the same time frame of what we saw in '95 and '96 -- >> tucker, i'm going to date myself a bit. my first day on capitol hill was the first day of the first government shutdown in 1995. >> i remember it well. >> ari fleischer, he was at the ways and means committee. everybody was there back in the day. i didn't have crow's feet back then though. >> you were a little more -- >> my memories of that shutdown are kind of fuzzy. i think this is different.
5:49 am
all the players are different. obviously you have to compare things to history, but this type of a fight, president obama and boehner and reid are very different than clinton -- president clinton used leon panetta, his o and b director, as his negotiator. i think that was a smart strategy and something that's not too late for president obama to do. >> also president clinton didn't try to close the ocean. >> president obama says he can calm the seas. >> dana perina, thank you for reminding of us that. my favorite quote forever. >> this kid's quote to get out of school, red sox fever and his mom wrote that note. >> i can understand that. your makeup or your shaving cream, can it be giving you cancer? >> yikes! >> stay here for information that could save your life. beauty products scare coming up. ♪ ♪ ♪

let's look at the products you brought here. i'm sure a lot of viewers have them in their cabinets this morning. tell u to worry about that. >> some products are routinely used in my practice, in my own children. you can find them in niece brands. some that do contain it. and some that don't. johnson & johnson, they have a natural care without parabens. they have claimed they'll be phasing them out. oil of olay, i recommend that routinely to my patients. in the regeneral ris anti-aging creams, there are pair bens. in their defense, spf 30 daily use there aren't. the product you just touched, anything they make will become free of it. not because they believe they're
5:56 am
dangerous but simply because there are suitable alternatives. >> we have this in our house for our baby. is says parabens. or a gel for babies. >> it's the most common for babies. there's not cause for major alarm. it is incumbent for them to come up with different -- there is nothing that links them to cancer. >> do you recommend them? >> i actually do not myself seek to avoid them. i think it's reasonable in creams that are applied in very, very high quantities over a long time maybe it would be sensible to use something else. if you're using it sparingly, in small amounts, the risk is so low. not even low, it's not even there. >> thanks dr. julie karen. coming up on the show, navy seals sneak into africa under the cloak of darkness and take

6:00 am
9:00 on the dot. it's sunday, the 6th of october 2013. i'm anna kooiman. we start with a fox news alert. america strikes back against terror. two raids overnight in africa. now the terrorist mastermind allegedly behind the 'em bass a bombing is ours. there are breaking details right now. we've got them. the budget shutdown entering day six. will the president only compromise once things are back up and running? that's what he says. is that a negotiation? and remember the movie, it could happen to you? >> just don't have enough for a tip. >> i'll live. >> lottery ticket? if this ticket wins, i'll come back tomorrow and split the
6:01 am
proceeds. if it doesn't, i'll still come back and leave you a tip. what do you think? >> a waitress getting a winning lotto ticket worth 17,000 bucks and she offered to give it back. would you? "fox and friends" hour 4 starts right now. ♪ hey there. great to be with you here on "fox and friends" weekend. >> we have a fwguest coming up. >> all right. here we go. tucker carlson, we need to start with this alert. american special forces striking africa top al qaeda leaders h the terrorist mastermind allegedly behind the 1998 u.s. embassy bombings in east africa has been captured. we're learning libya's prime minister demanding an explanation for the raid. he calls it a "kidnapping." a statement just released reads
6:02 am
this. tucker? >> the department of defense conducted an operation to apprehend long time al qaeda member abu anas al-libby in libya. he's detained in a secure location outside of labor i can't -- libya. an operative linked to the mall massacre in kenya. they took heavy fire and had to withdraw. no american troops were injured in either raid. >> both raids striking high value targets by surprise. so how would a raid like this unfold? we have former navy seal and ceo of the united states continued service jonathan gilliam joining us. jonathan, thanks a lot. >> what's the complexity of the raids? >> these are typical raids. we do snatch and grabs all the time. we do direct action missions which you saw in somalia. this is -- i would say that this is something they do over and over and over again. they're practiced and rehearsed.
6:03 am
they do the attacks quite often. the fact that it's a high-value target makes it look bigger. just like the osama bin laden raid. that was really a typical raid. it just happened to be him. >> capture the suspect alive? >> it depends on the environment. when you go in, the way we do things is we look at the -- every outcome that you could possibly have. we set up standard operating procedures so that the operations go down as fluidly as possible. when it moves into the unknown, we pretty much planned every contingency that we can. >> is that what happened in somalia? it moved into the unknown. we were going for the leader, al shabaab. he got away. we got one of the guys underneath him and got him. unknown, is that what happened here? >> probably so. also we're look to go diminish their capacities. i think that you're going to see over there, from what i hear, you'll see an increased diminishing capability of al shabaab because of this raid. >> how much safer is america
6:04 am
this morning because of this? >> well, we're looking at a global war. the war on terrorism is global. people want to ask why do you go into libya, why do you go into somalia? we're not fighting one country. we're fighting a global war. so we have to go where the target is. >> we're going to be safer. >> are we going to get a lot of information out of these individuals. is that to our advantage that they're alive and not dead? >> we're going to diminish their capabilities first of all. secondly, we're going to get intel from any of the attacks that we go through. we have to look at the follow-on pieces of the investigative pie. we're not just looking at seals here. we're talking about fbi, cia, all the intelligence communities, the army. everybody is involved in this. when you have -- we got to look at unconventional warfare, which is what this is. which is a tactical attack that is for the better overall strategic outcome. so this attack will cause ripples that we will gain
6:05 am
intelligence from. >> jonathan gilliam, thank you for your service to our country and former seal and fbi agent. >> my pleasure. >> we have to get to other stories. five minutes after the hour. we start with a fox news alert. some sad news out of southern afghanistan. four u.s. soldiers have died. they were hit by an i.e.d. overnight. officials are not releasing other details. overnight, one of the nation's largest military evacuated. a brushfire burning too closely to marine corps camp pendleton in southern california. fire fueled by high winds and dry conditions, four buildings were damaged. no one was hurt. in sand i hook elementary school will be rebuilt. newtown, connecticut, voting overwhelmingly to accept a $50 million state grant to rebuild after the tragic shooting last december. >> we're very thrilled. we're anxious to bring our
6:06 am
families home. this puts us one step closer making sure that our sandy hook families are back within our community. >> construction is expected by late 2015. the grand includes funds for a memorial on that site. how is this for an excuse from school? a massachusetts mom recently wrote this note. you see it here to her son's teacher. asking that he be excused from class because he has red sox fever and needs to visit fenway. that's right. she pulled him out of school for a baseball game. she knows the importance of school but she knows how much the red sox mean to him. we should mention the only classes he missed were recess and free time. >> did you ever play hookey? >> i liked going to school. >> come on. >> i did. >> lies, lies, lies. >> rick, laughing. >> the one in the front going ooh ooh ooh, pick me. i was the annoying one.
6:07 am
>> are you haermione granger frm harry potter. >> he skipped school regularly. >> we would not like you with your hand in front of the class. >> rick, tell us about the bad weather. tornadoes across the united states. some of the tweets, this happened in tennessee, right, rick? >> yesterday this one tornado in tennessee. >> in louisville, kentucky, we had flash flooding and stranding motorists. people sending the messages over social media yesterday. 6 inches of rain down there? >> about 24 hours. >> crazy storm. the snow was the bigger part of this. the flooding now on the rainy side of it. take a look at the picture of the snow. that picture is pretty sad for that family there. i think that was a basement in louisville that was completely flooded. this is from stur jess. famous for the big bike rallies. they had 4 feet of snow and drifts drifting up to 20 feet. there's a house there. you can see all of that snow drifted on the side of it.
6:08 am
incredible. heavy snow and winds up to 70 miles an hour along with that snow. >> this is stretching towards the central gulf. what was tropical storm karen, some of that moisture getting pulled up in here. big high pressure towards the east and not letting it move quickly. it's a slow-moving storm. it's going to very slowly move off east. by monday night exiting much of the seaboard. across parts of florida and the carolin carolinas, it's going to stall out. across the west, sunny and great but still very, very warm and wind a cross southern california and we were talking about that fire around the camp pendleton area. one more day of santa ana winds. l.a. get to go 90 degrees. this cools down by midweek. then a little bit of rain. the first winter-type storm for that area. >> winter storm, california
6:09 am
style. president obama says he's willing to negotiate on obama care but not until the shutdown ends and the new debt ceiling passes. in other words, as soon as you do everything i want to you do, then we can "negotiate". >> it doesn't make much sense to me. when asked in the same interview by the associated press, did he think these two incidents would butt up against each other, the debt ceiling clashing on october 17th with the government shutdown. he said i don't think that will happen. things will move in a way to get it resolved. the two don't add up to me at all. >> has this not been a little bit advantageous to the obama administration anyway to have the shutdown? the blame seems to be being pushed on the gop largely. and we're forgetting about all of the glitches that started with the website for obama care starting with the exchanges on tuesday and all of that. but we're asking everybody at home, is the president being hypocritical by saying this? one representative from oklahoma has this to say.
6:10 am
>> when he was a senator, he actually voted no on raising the debt ceiling and now he's coming back to us and say it would be irresponsible not to raise the debt ceiling. there's a difference between playing politics and making policy. my concern is so many in washington come here because they're good at politics but not good at implementing good ideas and policies. the people at home don't need us to look good. the people at home need solutions and answers. >> meanwhile, the ripple effects continue to be felt this morning. >> no pun intended. we're hearing about small planes and pilots that aren't able to get recertification to do their jobs now because of the government shutdown. we're hearing about the federal government attempting to shut down the ocean essentially. charter boat captains won't be able to -- this comes out of the miami herald this morning. that they won't be able to -- the park service will have rangers on duty to stop this. they won't be allowed to go into government-protected water areas. the charter boat captains that rely on money to go out and view certain parts of the ocean can't doo it anymore.
6:11 am
the federal government is saying the obama administration is saying 1100 miles of ocean off the coast of florida is now off limits. this includes big parts of biscayne bay in miami and you're not allowed to fish. the king doesn't want you to so you can't. >> if you're standing on the coastline there in any of the areas, you constantly see the charter boats going out with 100 people on them, doing deep sea fishing. they plan their vacations around them. they're out there trying to catch marlin or tuna. >> i'm on the waters a lot. what you don't see are federal agents wandering around. you don't see the park service on the waters at all. there's no reason that the feds need to oversee 1100 square miles of ocean. >> not to mention it's economically paralyzing these -- >> are the fish on furlough now? the fish are still out there. it's still in the water. if the charter boat captain can take them out, what does that
6:12 am
have to do? the rangers are watching it? >> blame it on the fish. 11 minutes after the hour. we have a lot more coming up on fox and friends. two terror raids and a shutdown, but the president wants to talk football. what he has to say abouted redskins has you fired up. a motorcyclist beats up a father in front of his wife and child. one biker was in fact a new york city undercover cop. if he threw a punch, can he avoid the law? peter johnson, jr., with the latest on that story coming up. heart healthy, huh?!

well, one week ago a new york man out for a sunday drive was chased by a gang of motorcyclists and beaten in front of his wife and child. now we know that one of those bikers was, in fact, an undercover cop. if he threw a punch, can he avoid prosecution? peter johnson jr. is here to separate the law from urban legend in this story. just named by "the new york times" magazines one of the nation's super lawyers. >> thank you. >> not a surprise to me. but congratulations. >> thank you, tucker. >> is it true? i'm always baffled by the law. is it true that he might escape prosecution? >> absolutely. under something called the public authority defense. that's a defense in this country and this state. if you're an undercover police officer and you're involved with a commission of a crime, you're very rarely prosecuted.
6:17 am
if you're in fact prosecuted, you may assert this public authority defense. meaning that you were empowered to commit crime for the greater good. you participated in the crime to prevent other crimes. the truth is at this point, the nypd has put one of these police officers on modified duty because they're upset as to what happened. the issue is where was the undercover, was he undercover with the bikers or something else? is this just an excuse? we'll know more. ray kelli get to the bottom of it. >> there's an ethical offense. this man had his head stomped on. don't police have an obligation to help citizens? >> police have an obligation to help citizens. you can make the argument as an undercover it's your responsibility to say hey i'm a police officer, hey but hey man, cut this out. that's not cool. don't be killing this guy. the cops are coming, let's get out of here. ways can be done to stop a crime as an undercover, absolutely. >> we have a sound bite here from one of the bikers who is trying to blame the driver in
6:18 am
this story. >> this is incredible. >> listen to what he said. >> so angry. they're angry because they tried to slow this man down. he was already driving erratic. to add insult to injury he pretty much said screw you, i'm going to hit you anyway. >> that's credible. he looks like a character out of hogan's heroes. i guess he was empowered to do traffic duty on the west side highway. i guess he has a badge and has had training and been to the police academy. i'm glad they made the determination about the safety of people on the road. come on. we've lost our minds in this country in some ways, haven't we, tucker? on a tun afternoon, a man, his young wife, 1-year-old baby are stopped on a major artery in new york city, stopped to a halt. tires slashed. try and open the door. he takes off and now he's the villain? he's the criminal? now we got an attorney flying across the country into new york to say i'm for the victim here. the victim is this man and his
6:19 am
family. they're the people that have a lawsuit. >> the attorney you're referring to is gloria allred. >> i guess that's her name. not to surprise our viewers. the man the driver of the car is not suing. >> he should be suing. i don't urge people to sue. because i think there's too many lawsuits. but when someone has been terrorized, assaulted, when there's an intentional infliction of emotional distress, when his wife is what's called the zone of danger, do you think you talk about psychotherapy, psychological damage, do you think after a 15-minute terror ride like that, that that woman would need some assistance? i think any ordinary american would need assistance in that situation. so now we have this cavalcade of lawyers piling on this family as if they were doing something wrong on a sunday ride on the west side highway. we've got our priorities reversed.
6:20 am
i think americans have to step up and say, listen, yeah we're going to speak out for this family. we're going to speak out for the ability to enjoy our lives quietly on a sunday and not be harassed or molested or assaulted. justice will be served. kelly will do a good job in new york city. the d.a. ultimately will. we'll hear a lot of nonsense and a lot of people trying to take that family's money for doing something themselves, in my view, that was wrong. >> peter johnson jr. not only a super lawyer, but one of the great explainers of the law. thanks, tucker. scammers preying on people in the name of obama care. what you need to know coming up. and take a look at this. it could be the best basketball trick shot ever. peace of mind is important when you're running a business. century link provides reliable it services like multi-layered

6:25 am
>> some of these e-mails can come in the form with a link inside of it or a picture, something like that. the biggest mistake, i guess, people can make is clicking on that link or clicking on something in a text message and taking them to a website, right? >> yes. for two reasons. if you click on certain links or go to websites, malware could be put on your computer and suddenly your computer is a transmitter. in addition to which, you go to sites that will look official and they will ask you for information that seems logical, like social security number and personal identifying information that you think you would need in order to enroll in a program like this. except the only people seeing it are the people that want to steal your identity not the people who want to help you medically. >> there's a lot of confusion, something called navigators to help you through the clutter. i'm a navigator for a fee i will help you sign for the aca they're not allowed to accept money? >> they're not on salary, not

back. defense secretary chuck hagel ordered most defense department workers back to work. day six of the shutdown begins, is there still no larger budget deal in sight? there's no better to ask than our -- >> he has not been furloughed. >> peter doocy. >> roughly 90% of the pentagon's civilian employees who were furloughed are heading back to work because the defense secretary chuck hagel says he got legal wiggle room. here's a quote from secretary hagel. the law does not permit a blanket recall of all civilians, however, dod and doj attorneys claims that the law allows for the department of defense to eliminate furloughs for employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members. over the last few days, we've seen the house pass several measures that would fund different parts of the government.
6:36 am
one at a time. yesterday, in a very rare saturday session, lawmakers voted 407-0 on a measure that would guarantee back pay for furloughed federal workers. but the senate still hasn't taken up that measure. that back pay is not yet legally guaranteed. to all the civilian dod employees are going to punch in tomorrow and the house, without that guaranteed back pay, and the house armed services committee chair, republican congressman mckeon says "i'm very pleased to see so many of the national security workforce be able to return to work, though i do not believe the law required the hundreds of thousands of workers to be furloughed in the first place, it is welcome news." so 350,000 or so workers are going to punch in tomorrow. but more than 400,000 are still furloughed. back to you in new york. >> little comfort for them. peter doocy live in new york. thanks, peter. 36 minutes after the hour. on to more headlines.

6:38 am
owner of the team and i knew that there was a name of my team, even if it had a storied history that was offending a sizable group of people, i'd think about changing it. >> some critics think the president should be thinking more about things like -- than thinking about the study on native americans and how their name -- how they wanted their name to be changed. so we've been asking everybody at home for e-mails on this. we wanted you to weigh in. robert e-mailed us and said of course the redskins shouldn't change their name. it's a representation of strength, perseverance, character and honor. there's always the possibility that someone in a group may be offended. we have to stop this practice of changing things to make a few people feel better. some college students pulling off an incredible basketball trick shot. >> here we go.

i worked a patrol unit for 17 years in the city of baltimore. when i first started experiencing the pain, it's, it's hard to describe because you have a numbness... but yet you have the pain like thousands of needles sticking in your foot. it was progressively getting worse, and at that point i knew i had to do something. when i went back to my healthcare professional... that's when she suggested the lyrica. once i started taking the lyrica, the pain started subsiding. [ male announcer ] it's known that diabetes damages rves. lyrica is fda approved to treat diabetic nerve pain.

6:44 am
claim 100% to be unbiased and you see numbers like this, what can we make of it? >> i think that we are all living in a parallel universe, because there are some networks, some cable networks that are blaming republicans, others blaming president obama. the headlines go from lynch mob on ted cruz because of a politico in "the new york times" piece that talked about how republicans behind closed doors were questioning the end game here to other ones saying that president obama is not doing what he is supposed to do. >> here's bob schieffer, host of face the nation. i would say not the most egregious offender on the question of bias. this is his description, setup. will the moderate and more establishment republicans continue to go along with the ultraconservatives? we're head today a shutdown nlts the moderates in the house revolt. it doesn't open up the possibility that maybe the
6:45 am
president could compromise too, it's about the ultraconservatives. >> i think, tucker, that schieffer comment actually encapsulates the mainstream media's view here is that a faction of the gop started this. the reason it's so easy for the media to adopt this narrative that is largely the republicans' fault is because of this bitter infighting within the party between what you call the ted cruz wing and john boehner who wanted to duck this fight. tucker, the head of "the new york times," quoted on the record as saying his side decided months ago this is a fight we were going to pick. that doesn't mean the democrats shouldn't negotiate. it's clear who started the fight. >> lauren, do you think the debate over the shutdown in the media, the bias over -- do you feel that's been exaggerated at all simply because it brings good tv ratings? >> ratings are always what people are going after. but no, i don't. i think that there have been significant problems with the
6:46 am
launch of obama care as well and that is a real story. i know i tried to get online to help a friend and was finally, after almost a day, given the phone number of a public information officer in a local county to call about trying to get on to the system. so that's a real story. >> howie, you've been doing this a long time. you hear the term ultraconservative a lot, far right conservative. have you ever in your career heard the term ultraleft used on a network newscast even to say fidel castro, ever? >> i would stay away from the labels. you have a legitimate point x tucker. i would call the republican faction that pushed for a shutdown unless obama care would be funded -- what bothers me is the press's widespread use of anonymous sources often to go after people like senator ted cruz. lauren made a reference to an article in "the new york times" that talked about other republican senators beating up
6:47 am
on ted cruz for what they see as tactics -- one quote was he didn't use his name. there have been a lynch mob against cruz and it was picked up by many websites, including liberal websites. >> lauren, do you feel the media is rile people up and per pate waiting the beef with the fear among e mongering. >> i think in this situation, it has become much more pointed because people are dug in. they've dug in their heels and the right/left split has never been more obvious despite the fact that there is a right split that is being covered in the media. >> guess what, cable news ratings are up during this period, tucker. >> yes, they are. there's a lot going on. we're grateful that people are tuning in. including to your show which follows. thank you both very much.

6:55 am
what does your brother's service to us mean for us to enjoy these liberties here? >> we come from a small town, like the rest of us, and he's jus one of the few that's been doing something good for the country and been to afghanistan and stuff. >> yeah, yeah. >> very proud of him. >> we honor your service, justin. how long in advance did you plan this? you had to think about this for a while, be scheming for a while. >> yes, i was. i had been planning this for a couple months while i was still in afghanistan. i eventually just called the coach and we called the coach, talked to the principal, had everything set up. they had the uniform ready, waiting for us. as soon as i got there, we went in, got the mascot uniform on. i went down to the field for about 45 minutes, sweating it out in all that fur, just for the right time to pop out. >> ronny, dads don't usually like to be duped by their kids,
6:56 am
but this is one you can chalk up to a good one, right? >> that is right. you don't like to be duped, but this sure was a good one. >> you guys are great. justin, thank you so much for your service to this country. what a heartwarming moment. and enjoy your sunday together. >> thank you. >> more fox and friends in three minutes. okay ladies, whenever you're ready. thank you. thank you. i got this. no, i'll get it! no, let me get this. seriously. hey, let me get it. ah, uh. i don't want you to pay for this. it's not happening, honey. let her get it. she got her safe driving bonus check from allstate last week. and it's her treat. what about a tip? oh, here's one... get an allstate agent. nice!
