daughter abigail's first day of school. rusty our director, we love you, and abigail. congratulations her. we'll look forward to watching her grow up. "fox & friends" starts right now. good morning. it is thursday, september 4th 20, 14. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. a fox news alert. while you were sleeping riot at a juvenile detention center. teens armed with rocks and pipes attacking guards while trying to escape. we have the breaking details ahead. >> that's not good. >> meanwhile, a tale of two leaders, president obama and british prime minister david cameron meeting today as one draws a hardline and the world still wondering where the other guy stands on this isil threat. what happens today? stay tuned. and the video is crazy, you have a stadium ceiling come crashing down.
3:01 am
what? you see that. you go running. we'll be sharing the rest of that video and what happened because morning are better with friends. >> it's time for "fox & friends." must have known something was happening if they had a camera trained on it. >> you know what, someone had an inkling. >> that is crazy. >> thank you for joining us this morning at "fox & friends." we're going to go right now to heather chillders who has breaking news overnight. good morning, friend. >> good morning. nice to see you and be here. >> the video is outrageous, violent groups breaking out at the same detention center in nashville where more than 30 inmates escaped. about 20 other teenagers tried to escape this time but they were armed with rock, sticks and metal poles, started attacking the guards, s.w.a.t. teams were called in to round them up. 14 are back in custody. six of the teenagers who escaped on monday still on the run.
3:02 am
the hunt is on for a killer at this hour after a body is found near the arizona home where an 8-year-old girl vanished without a trace. the fbi saying it's too soon to know if the body is that of isabella grogan canella. she was last seen around midnight on monday. her parents say she was snatched right out of her bed in the middle of the night. investigators found no signs of a break-in, but they have not ruled out a kidnapping. there is an outcry from the catholic community this morning after organizers of the st. patrick's day parade here in new york city allow a gay group to march for the first time since it began in 1766. the parade will be led by timothy cardinal -- cardinal timothy dolan sparking even more controversy. he gave the decision his blessing and some catholics are calling for him to step down, calling the move contrary to their core. to north carolina now, democrat kay hagan facing a tough re-election battle in the senate slams president obama in
3:03 am
a fiery debate. it happened last night. hagan criticized the president's policies on syria, immigration and his handling of secret waiting lists, remember those, at the va. >> their lives should not be at risk when they come home. i have demanded better from the president and i have demanded the fact that we need to support our va. >> her challenger house speaker tom tillis claims hagan is just a rubber stamp for the president. the race one of the most competitive senate elections this year. that is a look at your headlines. back to you. >> all right. heather, thank you very much. >> you're welcome. time to have a nato summit because it's about time the world got together over issues. every other nation they used to have when they used to call themselves the soviet union and how to come together on a comprehensive effort and coalition to stop isis. one thing is clear, we may have the power, but it seems like david cameron has the very clear and candid voice, but together,
3:04 am
they combined on an op-ed published today. >> the nato summit bringing them at least together an opinion as indicated by their writing which said this, quote, if terrorists think we will weaken in the face of their threats they cannot be more wrong. countries like britain and america will not be cowed by barbaric killers. >> that's terrific. that's the kind of rhetoric we've been waiting to hear from our president. remember, it was just last week the president said we don't have a strategy. then yesterday he said during that press availability with the president of estonia, we would destroy isis, but then he said you know what, maybe we'll just manage them. this is very, very confusing, not only for people watching, but also for the white house staff because they had to explain what the president meant last week, what he meant yesterday, and what he means now. jason, chaffetz the republican from out west is confused like the rest of us. >> the president seems to be a
3:05 am
definite maybe. that is not what we need in the commander in chief of the united states of america. i think history will show the president failed to deal with this about a year too late. we should have been dealing with a year ago. here we are today. we need a goal, we need an objective and then we need a strategy. it just does not feel that the president of the united states has his heart into it because the moment he gets off the teleprompter we get this different answer saying it's manageab manageable. manageable? that's when you're closing a lane on the freeway and you have to go down the freeway with three lanes instead of four. this is isis, they want death and destruction to the united states of america. >> that's right. >> the problem is, you might say jason chaffetz is a republican and goes against the president a lot. you saw the secretary of defense going against the president, saying it's clear, it's destroy. make it destroy. vice president biden again, almost, you know, go very over the top emotional saying we have to destroy these guys. >> and follow them to the gates
3:06 am
of hell. >> jan psaki had a hard time because of the three positions the president took in the estonia press conference. seems the president, what david chaffetz said when he's off his prompter, he tends just to wing it. >> i think what the american people are searching for, we heard it from jason chaffetz, they're searching for conviction in the statement, not just empty words. i love to hear strong statements from the president at a time like this, as many other citizens, but i think you want to believe there's some conviction behind there. certainly coming from those that are on his side politically. i mean democrats are coming out right now with stronger statements than he has in the past. >> sure. >> we've got a ton of them coming out. united arab emirates using stronger words and verbiage as it relates to isis. they said islamic extremism is a middle east problem but quickly becoming the world's problem too. now it's time to act. the uae is ready to join the international community in an urgent, coordinated and
3:07 am
sustained effort to confront the threat that will, if left, unchecked, have global ramifications for decades to come. >> it's about time. that's the first middle east country to come out against isis. charles krauthammer sees it this way. >> the uae is not afraid to say islam mick extremism. the president is. he calls it extremism. in fact, earlier in the show you showed the -- our counter terrorism, our top guy, called olson, and he said that isis now is looking to outpace al qaeda as the leader of the global extremist movement. he cannot bring himself to say islamic. for god's sake, isis calls itself the islamic state and yes, we are so politically correct we don't want to use the words islamic, less it be a slur on great religion. >> to your point about how people throughout washington seem to be turning on the president, not only on the republican side, but on the
3:08 am
democrat side as well, just take a look. senator al franken from the great state of minnesota, he's about as far left as you can get, he said i was troubled by the president's recent suggestion that the administration has not developed a comprehensive strategy to address the growing threat of isil's activities in syria. and he's not alone. >> right. out of massachusetts, elizabeth warren was asked by katie couric about it and she said this. >> isis is growing in strength and it has money, it has organization, it has the capacity to inflict real damage. so when we think about a response, we have to think about how to destroy that. we need to be working now full speed ahead with other countries to destroy isis. that should be our number one priority. >> senator warren sounds like someone who was sleeping in the
3:09 am
other room and told to whisper. i understand her point. she's way to the left. ja nin shah neen who wants to win an election with the former senator brown says, quote, do not believe isil is manageable. agree that terrorists must be chased to the gates of hell the quote from joe biden. >> chasing is one thing. he said we're going to follow you. i don't think they should be taking the lead at all. that is one point i took issue with. the mention by the president this is not going to be a one week or one month or six month proposition. the president has been quick to set deadlines in terms of solving problems when it comes to the middle east and timelines with our military, but not able to do that, not able to know if there is a definite strategy moving forward with time as well. >> the white house strategy is while the president is over in wales where he is right now and we're going to bring you some pictures of him with david cameron shortly, what he's going to do is try to build a coalition. so far senator -- former senator, current secretary of
3:10 am
state john kerry has reached out to australia, the uae, jordan, qatar, saudi arabia, israel, and italy, and these are countries that they're saying, okay, you all have an interest in killing off isil or isis as we do. what can you contribute? humanitarian aid? weapons? here. sign up. >> yeah. meanwhile this has been going on, they've been together for a year. the urgency has been there for a year. they took mosul three months ago and now waiting for a big conference to get a coalition. by the way, call egypt and planes have planes too. as great as uae is to come forward if you gave your people a little bit of rights i would feel better. they should right a check. the uae did combine with egypt to bomb libya two weeks ago because they feared islamic extremists getting hold in that country. >> the nation is praying something moves forward. the second american journalist
3:11 am
beheaded, isis starting to take over power transformers and one of the fighters who was killed just recently that we know, he was working for an airline out of minnesota. so time is ticking and lives are on the line m president. >> and the next up is a british journalist who everyone is focused on now. >> yeah. unfortunately they think he may already be dead. it's 11 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up we just told you about president obama's flip flop on his stance regarding isis or isil as he calls it. which leader sends a stronger message? our president or the prime minister of great britain? we'll grade them coming up next. >> why not, it's back to school. >> sure. >> the healthy school lunches, speaking of, forced by the feds too hard to swallow. big changes coming this school year for some kids. you're not going to want to miss them. >> that looks good.

3:16 am
thanks for being back with us here. we're going to go through some sound bites here and how it's really responded to and how people are really emotionally ticking after this one direction or the other. we're going to start with yesterday, president obama in estonia sending mixed messages on isis. the manageable problem. >> the bottom line is this. our objective is clear and that is to degrade and destroy isil so that it's no longer a threat not just to iraq, but also the region and to the united states. we know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink isil's sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities, to the point where it is a manageable problem. >> okay. so we're in a world where messaging is everything.
3:17 am
we're in a world where isis is using strong messaging to the world and the united states and great britain. what grade would you give president obama for his messaging? >> what he's doing is acting like this is a textbook problem. people are angry. people want us to respond strongly. and what is he doing right here? he's acting like a college professor calling this a manageable problem. we are -- we have people that are being killed that are american citizens here and we want a strong response. he's not giving it, he's not delivering it and what we see is people aren't responding to him. i would just give him a "c." this is really average. >> based on his energy, is it based on his sort of delayed hand signals? is it based on his actual words and choice? >> i think it's his actual words. he used terms like sphere of influence, he talked about effectiveness, financing, military capabilities. this is a manageable problem. this isn't textbook. he's not a college professor. he's the leader of america and that's what we want him to see. we want strong language, more something like what biden said
3:18 am
yesterday, we see this anger, i'm going to protect our people. >> this is another sound from president obama when he discussed not having a strategy as it relates to isis. august 28th, this is the date. >> i am confident that as commander in chief, i have the authorities to engage in the acts that we are conducting currently as our strat fwi develops, we will continue to consult with congress and i think it will be important for congress to weigh in or our consultations with congress continue to develop so that the american people are part of the debate. but i don't want to put the cart before the horse. we don't have a strategy yet. >> what do those dials indicate to you and what's your overall grade? >> i mean, this is devastating for him. this is one of the worst moments i've seen president obama ever have. republicans and democrats alike, the folks we're talking to said this didn't instill confidence. this isn't a commander in chief.
3:19 am
to say we have no strategy, what a disappointment. saying we're doing the air strikes. i don't know what i'm going to do. i have to consult with congress. i'm going to give him a d-minus and say that's generous given the response and backlash this has had on us. >> one day later, david cameron, the british prime minister said this. >> we cannot apiece this ideology, we have to confront it at home and abroad. to do this, we need a tough, intelligent, patient, and comprehensive approach that defeats the terror threat at its source. we are in the middle of a generational struggle against a poisonous and extremist i doing that i believe we will be fighting for years and probably decade. >> i'm seeing climbing numbers there. what's your grade and assessment? >> cameron did a great job. he painted context. he told us why this is different than anything before and he talked about it in a credible way. we're going to be fighting this for years. we're not going to tolerate it on our soil. i give him an "a."
3:20 am
he did a fantastic job. this what is leadership looks like. >> overall the grade is? >> an "a." >> okay. well you know a lot of people would say the president's statements so far would get an incomplete. we thank you for all of your insight, lee carter. we'll see you soon. call the pc police. a major newspaper refusing to call the washington redskins by name. what the heck are they going to call them? we'll tell you. and brand new car about to hit the market. can you tell if you are driving distracted. guess who wants the information? insurance companies, of course. but is it legal? ♪ life in the fast lane makes you lose your mind ♪ ♪ life in the fast lane ♪ life in the fast lane ♪ everything all the time ♪ life in the fast lane [ hoof beats ]

3:23 am
3:24 am
wow. the ceiling comes crashing down during a bad mitten tournament in vietnam. huge chunks of debris fell from the is stadium on to the match floor. players and fans narrowly escaped. no one was hurt. and the new yo"new york dai news" sacking the washington redskins name, now only refer to the team as washington and the squad who wears red the who giants like to beat. the paper refusing to publish the team's logo opting for this image of the team's colors instead. this is getting ridiculous. 71% of the country say leave it alone. let's shift gears. drivers beware, your next car might have cameras installed that look at you in the passenger -- the passenger or
3:25 am
driving tracking your every move. general motors is set to become the first car maker to install eye and head tracking technology that can tell when drivers are distracted. some say it will increase safety, but others are worried. it could be a major invasion of privacy. justin brookman the director of the project on consumer privacy for center of democracy and technology and joins us from washington. good morning. >> good morning, steve. >> i like the idea of if there was going to be a camera on you to figure out if you're starting to doze off and, you know, there could be a beep beep beep or something like that, but you see all sorts of mischief that could happen with a camera aimed at the driver and passengers, don't you? >> yeah. i live on a busy street and i take my kids to school every morning. i see people kind of driving and not paying attention so i kind of like the idea of them being nudged every once in a while to pay attention and stay on the road but yeah, i worry about people constant video footage of
3:26 am
everyone in their cars all the time. who else is going to want access to that information. is my insurance company want to know how often i look at my phone. am i going to get a ticket every time i look at google maps to see where i'm going. is it going to be out in the cloud where its might get hacked or accessed. >> exactly. the intent the way gm is selling it going to figure out if you're driving distracted, looking down at your blackberry or iphone or something like that. that is not helpful when you're driving. i mean you shouldn't be doing that anyway. but just the fact that they would know that, you do wonder whether or not next thing you know you're going to get a bill from allstate, hey, we understand you've been driving, watching your iphone. >> yeah. the vendor that gm chose to put these cameras in cars said, first we'll get the cameras in there for safety and then figure out other uses for it. my question is what are the uses you're thinking about. maybe there's beneficial things
3:27 am
that could happen but this is my car, i paid 20, $30,000 for it. i don't want a camera focused on me at all times and people can access it for reasons i don't necessarily agree with. are they going to look at me when i'm eating an egg mcmuffin on the way to work and send me coupons. this is my car. i don't want that. >> they might see you're eating a big mac at lunch time and send you something to go work out instead. >> exactly. and you know, maybe i want that. maybe people want that experience. i'm not sure i do. i think the driver needs to be the one in control here. >> sure. the other worry is, if there's a camera in your car, let's say it's right up there by your mirror and taking a picture of you the whole time, and as you say, it goes into the black box or something like that, who's to say -- with this nsa thing, big brother is watching, we don't know exactly where those images are going to go. who knows, it might wind up in some sort of repository and next thing you know you're involved in a divorce proceeding, your
3:28 am
wife's lawyers calling for the video to see if anybody else was in the car. it opens a can of worms. >> yeah. the police might say you're in public the entire time, we can see it. maybe you don't need to get a court order before they get that information. for better or worse, electronic storage is cheaper and cheaper. right now maybe they can store us for the last three seconds before a crash. over time maybe they can store it for days at a time and you as the driver don't have control of that. it's an unfortunate direction to go down. >> we like the idea to track distracted drivers but at the same time when big brother is watching you wonder what big brother is going to do with that. all right. justin brookman from the center of technology, thank you very much. >> thank you. what do you think about that? is it a good idea? do you worry what they're going to do with that. e-mail us. coming up, one town council tried to rename a building for president obama, but the
3:29 am
residents said, are you kidding? no way. why they fought back and won. and then want to get in on the new medical marijuana craze but can't quite afford medical marijuana? the government wants to help by giving out welfare weed. good idea, bad idea? we'll debate it before it goes up in smoke. happy birthday, damon wayans, 54.

>> thank you, tobey. headlines now on this thursday morning. new york city is getting a trophy from the war on terror. the shirt worn by the navy s.e.a.l. from s.e.a.l. team six who delivered justice for america by shooting bin laden will be put on public display at the 9/11 museum starting this sunday on 9/11. this morning we're getting a first look at the new biography on president george herbert walker bush written by his son george walker bush. the cover released. the title is "41, a portrait of my father." the book comes out in november. all right. brian, over to you. >> all right. you want to light up but do not have the money? good news, at least if you're in berkeley california. a new law requiring medical marijuana dispensaries to give away at least 2% of their weed to low-income patients. peter is a recovering drug addict and head of the international faith based
3:45 am
coalition, bishop ron allen, and mesa tavert. so reverend, what do you think of this? >> i think it's ludicrous, over the top madness. why would berkeley city council want to keep their poverty stricken under served high in poverty and lethargic. it's absolutely mind boggling and absolutely ridiculous for berkeley city council to make such a suggestion and then to put this in motion. makes no sense at all. >> mason, are you for dumping pot on the impoverished? >> well, i think that we need to look at this for what it is, which is medical marijuana's legal in california. 85% of americans according to fox news last polled support medical marijuana and it's up to this community to decide if they would like to have a program that allows low-income individuals to have access to it. and that's really their decision. so it's a matter of the
3:46 am
democratic process. people following the state's laws and this law appears to accommodate both of those. >> let's take a look at stat as it comes to berkeley. their poverty rate is 18%. the u.s. poverty rate is 15%. it's slightly up. does it necessarily -- do you look at medical marijuana different than you would oxycontin or any other type of medicine or looking at the connotation of recreational drugs and misconstruing it? >> well, research tells us that pair wanna has to -- marijuana has the same effects on the pleasure central system in the brain as heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, and so it's no different at all. and with mason talking that it's up to the citizen, mason, that's why we elect individuals to help make good decisions for our cities and you have to admit that berkeley city council must have been high to make this
3:47 am
decision to cause generational poverty. the center for children of poverty makes a strong statement that when a child is in poverty and lives in poverty, they have a greater chance of becoming -- living in poverty as an adult. so berkeley has not helped their city at all. in fact, it pushed it deeper into a depression,let that are gic --let that are gic, a criminal mind. this is bad. >> mason, how do you feel about that? >> well, bishop, you know with all due respect, your suggestion that marijuana has the same effect as heroin and crack cocaine, really just suggests that you don't know what you're talking about quite frankly. the fact is, marijuana is proven to be less toxic and less addictive not only than those drugs but then alcohol. if you don't like marijuana and you don't like people who use
3:48 am
marijuana that's your prerogative. the fact is medical associations across the country and more than 80% of americans think marijuana can help. >> here's the problem, in practicality people are abusing medical marijuana prescription. they're using it for recreational purposes and doctors are just complicit and this plays into the cycle and that's what the bishop is seeing because he's been there himself. >> well -- >> well -- >> the fact is that -- >> in fact -- >> the fact is that narcotic pain killers are one of the number one causes of accidental deaths in the united states and marijuana is not responsible for any overdose deaths. >> mason -- >> states with medical marijuana laws are seeing fewer deaths than states without them. >> let him finish. >> mason, cigarettes does not cause an overdose but we have many people dieing from cigarettes. >> that doesn't change anything. >> marijuana -- >> cigarettes are more harmful than marijuana.
3:49 am
>> mason, you to let me say something here. marijuana is -- carcinogenic is worse. i know you guys want to smoke and get high, but what berkeley has done to their citizens in berkeley, california, is terrible and every last one of them should be recalled for harming the future of berkeley's youth. >> i can see the passion on both sides. s. mason, good solid argument there. do you agree that the rich who get marijuana should be giving 2% of what they pay out to help the poor get their medical marijuana? i want you to go on facebook right now and debate that and bring it on-line. thanks, guys. meanwhile, coming up straight ahead, are you smarter than a common core kid? >> 26 plus 17 by breaking apart numbers to make a 10. use a number that adds with the 6 and 26 to make it 10 since 6 plus 4 equals 10 use 4.

i think i've learned one thing about this president and that is he's very cautious. maybe in this instance too cautious. >> the white house tries to build a strategy to fight isis in syria. even democrats are calling on the president to launch more air strikes. >> seven democrats have spoken out in public, including minnesota's very lefty senator, al franken. >> in a tough fight to keep his senate seem but analysts say the president could have a tough time when it comes to the legality of air strikes, especially if he takes action without congressional approval. >> here to explain the president's options is fox news senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. always good to see you. >> good morning. >> where is the president within bounds when it comes to these air strikes as it relates to his address of congress? >> under the war powers resolution in 1973 statute enacted by the congress, over the veto of president nixon, the
3:55 am
president of the united states has the authority to deploy military force without congressional approval anywhere in the world outside the united states for 90 days. all he has to do is tell congress they're going and why they're going. >> at the 90th day? >> he can then say to congress, i need a second 90 day-period because if i don't, the people i sent for the first 90-day period are going to get harmed or the accomplishments they achieved will be undone. at the end of the second 90-day period, he has to either bring them home or get permission from the congress. >> okay. so that's the way it's set up and we've done it for a very long time. it seems like, judge, the president is speaking so cautiously as we just heard from the senator right there. what if congress says okay. we're going to go ahead. we're going to enact the war powers act? and the president doesn't enact it? >> that has never, ever happened in american history that the congress has declared war, authorized war, or authorized limited hostilities and the president has refused to execute
3:56 am
them. elisabeth's question was does he have the legal authority to do it alone? answer, yes. your question is, would he have the willpower to do it even if congress declared war? that's a psychological question about the president because he is so reluctant to exercise military force, just as senator feinstein said. >> it will be odd because i don't think anyone will push the president to go to congress first, but he says he wants congress behind him, but he hasn't done anything -- >> he knows the law. he has a skewed view of the law. he used the war powers act to bomb libya. was a disaster. ended up in killing the head of the government and our own ambassador got killed. >> leading from behind. >> judge, you did a very good job work awful our questions in. i appreciate it. >> and we didn't even rehearse them ahead of time.

good morning. it is thursday, september 4, 2014. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. it is hard to believe. overnight there was another escape at the same detention center where 30 teen-agers escaped earlier this week. this time things got really violent. brand-new video of president obama with british prime minister david cameron. so can we expect our president to draw a harder line in the sand against the war on terror, like his counterpart seems to do verbally? stay tuned. dws, debbie wasserman schultz taking the war on women to a whole new level. >> scott walker has given women
4:01 am
the bask his hand. >> was she just calling scott walker the governor a wife beater? well, scott walker responds. he's not happy. but we are that you're watching because thursday mornings are always better with friends like you. >> this is michael wasserman, you're watching "fox & friends." the fastest show on four cameras. >> very clever. >> michael waltrip was here yesterday, which seems like yesterday. >> he was. >> with our faces on that car pretty soon, right? >> yeah. we're going to have our face on the race car that's going to be going on the track this weekend. >> fantastic. it's not all about us. it's about you. you're tuned in to get the news and that's why we turn to heather childers who is in for heather nauert. >> nice to be here. the video that elisabeth mentioned is outrageous. violent riots breaking out at the same detention center in nashville where more than 30 minute mates escaped. -- inmates stride to escape.
4:02 am
they were armed with rocks, stick and poles and started attacking guards. swat teams were called in to round them all up. ten of the ring leaders were taken to another detention center. all of the others are now back in their dorms. six of the teen-agers who escaped on monday are still on the run. the hunt is on for a killer at this hour after a body is found near the arizona home where an eight-year-old girl vanished without a trace. the f.b.i. saying it's too soon to know if the body is in fact that of the girl. she was last seen monday. her parents say that she was snatched out of her bed in the middle of the night. investigators found no signs of a break-in. but they have not yet ruled out a kidnapping. another democrat distancing herself from president obama. this time it's north carolina democrat kay hagin. in a firey debate that happened last night, she criticized the president's policies on syria, immigration, and his handling of secret waiting lists at the v.a.
4:03 am
>> their lives should not be at risk when they come home. i have demanded better from the president and i have demanded the fact that we need to support our v.a. >> her challenger, house speak claims hagin is just a rubber stamp for the president. the race is one of the most competitive senate elections this year and the senate up for grabs. a pair of kayakers tossed into the waters off the coast of massachusetts by a great white shark and they live to tell about it. >> all of a sudden i got knocked into the water and plopped down right next to a great white shark with my kayak in his mouth. >> we sat in the water for 30 minutes. it was the scariest 30 minutes of my life. >> she plopped right down next to him. luckily the shark took off after sinking its teeth into one of the kayaks. look at this kayak. those are teeth marks, confirming indeed it was a great white. those are a look at your
4:04 am
headlines. can you imagine if it happened to you? >> we're going to need a bigger kayak. >> exactly. >> you're supposed to punch him in the nose, aren't you? >> that's what i hear. >> if it got ahold of you. >> so if he's biting your kayak, don't punch him? >> i think that would be just hacking him off. there is a shark and you just punched him in the water -- >> or just verbally abuse the shark. they hate that. >> they're sensitive. >> right. four minutes after the top of the hour. we got a fox news alert. at this hour, president obama is in the country of wales visiting with british prime minister david cameron and other nato leaders. topping the agenda, coming up with a military coalition and a strategy to defeat isis. this just one day after the president sent mixed signals about dealing with the terror group. he said they were going to destroy them, but then said they would manage them. leeland vittert is in washington
4:05 am
taking a look at the administration in damage control mode. >> reporter: we'll have to see what the president for that matter says today. many here have praised. k. prime minister david cameron for coming out swinging against isis. today he and president obama released a jointly penned op ed piece headline, we will not be cowed by barbaric killers. while it's long on rhetoric, it was short on specifics about what the long-standing transatlantic alliance will do to stop isis and president obama is still taking heat over these comments from yesterday. >> our objective is clear, that is to degrade and destroy isil so we can continue to is that rink isil's sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.
4:06 am
>> reporter: manageable? that's when you're closing a lane on the freeway and you got to go down the freeway with three lanes instead of four. then you manage it. but this is isis. they want death and destruction to the united states of america! >> reporter: the nato summit isn't just about isis. russia will be high on the agenda, especially considering putin's latest moves against ukraine and there are a lot of eastern european countries who are members of nato wondering two things, will russia target them next? and if they do, will the united states and the u.k. fill their promise to protect us, not just with words, but with military might as well? back to you in new york. >> thanks. >> so we think there is about 100 americans. some say less than that. some say a little bit more than that fighting for isis. it brings us to the question, why would anybody join? what's the attraction to leave this country to go to syria, iraq, or lebanon or anywhere else? >> just when you think you might have figured out who could want to join something like this, who
4:07 am
they might be, this surprises you. you're going to meet this man. he actually, catholic from north carolina. he wanted to join the most radical blood thirsty terrorist group of our time. why? we'll let him tell you. >> a push came from being mistreated by people around me who didn't share the views i had. i purchased a ticket with the intent of entering to syria, joining up with medical and food aid convoys or directly with the islamic state. someone has to defend islam and somebody has to defend innocent muslims. >> what a story that guy has to tell. morgan. he's 44 years old. he was a catholic for a while. he's from north carolina and he dreamed of becoming a special ops guy. he wound up being in the national guard. he got a job as a sheriff's department deputy down in north carolina. they eliminated his job.
4:08 am
he started spiraling out of control. he wound up getting married, got divorced, then he joined islam, converted to islam. then in 2012, he had a dramatic transformation. he decided to essentially become more extreme. and then through january and july of this year, he went to lebanon and he was trying his hardest to get into syria. he wanted to go and join up with isis. he knew what they were all about and he tried to join. this guy from north carolina. he looks like everybody's neighbor. is he supporting terror? here is what don morgan has to say about that. >> based on the definition, yes. i think there is a strong possibility that they'll charge me with supporting terrorist organizations and participating in terrorist activities. >> well, he's a good prognose indicator if nothing else. he ran out of money and was arrested and charged with trying to sell a rifle on line.
4:09 am
and he's going to be facing even more charges. >> because he had a felony earlier. >> right. also. they look at the whole picture. and analysts say personal disappointment and desires and exposure to increasingly radical social media contributed to morgan's actions. so if you can't become a special forces guy, if you didn't get that feeling of camaraderie as a cop or sheriff, he's still reaching for something, personal disappointment with the divorce, so why not shave my head, grow my beard and fight against humanity? >> isis is taking advantage of individuals like this one where they get into your heart at that point where you feel as though you want to belong to something. why not the most evil, destructive group out there right now with isis? >> that guy tried to get into syria and could not. however, remember last week we told you about the two guys who were killed over there fighting alongside of isis? one of them was douglas macarthur mccain. we told you about him.
4:10 am
the other was a minnesota man by the name of abdiri man mohammed. and he was killed in the same battle as doug mccain. as it turns out, we're learning more about him and it's troubling. this guy, between 2001 and 2011 was actually a fueler and a cleaner at the minneapolis-st. paul international airport. he worked for a number of different airlines, including delta where they put out this statement regarding this. airport workers with access to nonpublic secure areas of airports are subject to multiple government-based screenings, including vetting by the department of homeland security. it's just troubling to think that this guy who wants to kill americans was cleaning our airplanes. >> here is the thing. they looked at his background and came up with nothing. that's little bit of an issue. he passed. so he had access. which all he had was jet fuel near a plane. how could that be bad? >> for a decade. >> right. for ten years.
4:11 am
so people have access. you wonder why people who are involved in homeland security or counter terror have trouble sleeping at night. one of these guys slips through the netting and then decides, hey, 9-11 is here. i have an idea. let's take some action, something that would get me on the good side of allah in their own twisted mind. >> you wonder if the airlines are going back and doing a final comb through of those who might be parting in their work force. >> i'd do it again in minneapolis, that's for sure. >> meanwhile, debbie wasserman schultz who heads up the dnc was at a round table at the milwaukee athletic club yesterday when she bone headedly said this. >> scott walker has given women the bask his hand and there is no -- i know ha is stark. i know that is direct, but that is reality. republicans tea party extremists like scott walker is grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back and it's unacceptable and it's not going to happen on our
4:12 am
watch. >> what was she thinking? >> scott walker said, look, not only was it unacceptable. he tweeted this, dems reached a new low with debbie wasserman schultz comments. help us fight back today. >> so raise money off of it. that tends to be the thing to do. she's a bone to pick with scott walker because of his position recently on making a little bit more tight for women to get an abortion. >> she's making it sound like he's a wife beater. that is so over the line. debbie wasserman schultz, who heads up the dnc, the dnc spokesperson said domestic violence is an incredibly serious issue and the congresswoman was by no means belittling the very real pain survivors experience. really? then why did she say it? >> she was upset because he refuses to increase minimum wage and criticized the governor's bill to prevents people from suing their employer if they got
4:13 am
fired for employment discrimination. so that's the back of his hand. but she was reading it. this is very much like harry reid. you have these leaders who come out and say the most irresponsible thing like mitt romney doesn't pay taxes and the koch brothers are destroying the country and they just walk away. she's not going to get any ramifications from that. >> that was not a metaphor. that was saying, i know he does this. that's an accusation and i actually think there could be some culpability there in terms of what she has accused him of doing. >> what about the democrat we were talking about yesterday from alabama who said republicans are worse than isis? >> right. >> 13 minutes after the top of the hour. >> does the united states need o butt out of the world's problems? a whole bunch of you used to think so. but with the terror threat coming from isis, it seems we have changed our mind as a nation. we will debate it. and how do i get a gig like this? nbc now flying -- paying to fly matthew lauer to work every

all those missing socks on an x-ray. the vet went in and removed every last one of them. the dog made it out okay. that could be dangerous. there must be some tasty socks. back to you. >> well, there is nothing like a pair of heels to make you feel put together as carey bradshaw would say. >> these are authentic, patent leather and if they don't fit, i'm going to wear them anyway. >> i love that. wearing high heels day in and day out can do a number on our feet, ankles and calfs. but you don't have to give them up yet. here to teach us the best exercises to combat the pain from wearing heels is fitness director of women's health magazine. welcome. >> thanks. >> the good news is we can keep wearing the heels. but we need to keep in mind the damage that they're doing. >> that's right. a lot of women admit they wear heels that are painful all the
4:38 am
time and they have discomfort in and out of wearing them. rather than saying get rid of your heels or wear one to two-inch heels which isn't that realistic, we love our heels, we're saying there is easy exercises you can do. >> right here we just saw a graphic which is important. when you're wearing the heels, it is shortening your calf muscles. >> right. that's what these are going to address. the things that happen to your heels when you're wearing them. your heels are lifted. your calf gets shortened. that place extra stress on your ankles and niece. a lot of people when they're not wearing heels realize my knees are achy. my ankles are and don't understand why. >> you mention that with our heels we can also try to choose maybe some where a platform? n they make it easier 'cause they're not putting your feet at that exaggerated angle as much. so they're kind of reducing the stress a little bit. more importantly, our doing these simple exercises day in and day out just throughout your regular routine. a really easy one to start the day with, which might be tough in the heel is ankle circles.
4:39 am
so you're just going to hold your knee and literally just do slow circles five times one way, five times another way. >> this is really good for loosening up those stiff ankles. they get in this fixed position every time you're wearing heels and this helps relax them. duke these in the morning, at night. >> this feels great. >> exactly. the calf is a big issue. so we're going to get into kind of a modified lunge position. when not wearing heels, the heel will be lifted off the ground. you're going to pulse down and get this good calf stretch. that's one of the biggest issues that you want to address are your calfs because again, they're so tightened and you really need to loosen them up. >> you feel that when you come out of the heels. >> how many? >> ten on each side and kind of hold them for a couple seconds. >> in the morning or after? >> i would do them throughout the day, too, if you can. kick off your heels and do them a couple of times. one of the best things you can invest in for high heel wearers is a foam roller. this is an easy calf stretch.
4:40 am
i can do it. you can watch. you put both feet on top of each other and just roll over the foam roller and it's really going to help work out a lot of that tightness and the kinks in your calfs. >> that's a good before and after. all these pro and post. >> exactly. just whenever you feel that tension, when you're kind of kick off your heels. these are good, simple things to do. the last one, a lot of people don't realize is that if you have stronger glutes and hamstrings, you'll be able to walk more stably in your high heels to begin with. so this is a great exercise to do. >> we're going to test both our skill in heels. >> this is a single leg dead lift. lower down. you'll feel the stretch. >> shaky. >> yeah. that's impressive. it helps your balance. obviously you need great balance when wearing great high heels. but also it's really working that backside of your body, so it's getting glutes, hamstrings, nice and strong, putting less

5:02 am
countries like britain and america will not be cowed by barbaric killers. president obama and vice president biden both addressed the isis threat yesterday, but with a difference in tone that got a lot of attention, mr. obama talked about degrading the group until its a manageable problem. biden vowed to follow them to the gates of hell. ukraine actually tops the agenda. the u.s. and europe expected to tighten sanctions on russia and create a rotating rapid reaction force of nato troops in member states on the rush border. guys, back to you. >> wendell goler on the north lawn, thank you very much. it is curious that you got the vice president saying we're going to track them down to the gates of hell because president obama won't even allow us to go ahead and drop bombs across that imaginary border with syria. but then again, the president has been a mixed message one right after another. last thursday he said we had no strategy. yesterday in estonia he said the objective was to destroy and degrade isis.
5:03 am
but then he said, well, actually maybe we're just going to get to a point where we could manage it. there are so many crazy statements that don't really form a cohesive strategy, congressman jason chaffetz is scratching his head. >> very confusing. the president seems to be a definite maybe. that is not what we need in the commander in chief of the united states of america. i think history will show that the president failed to deal with this about a year too late. we should have been dealing with this a year ago. nevertheless, here we are today. we need a goal. we need an objective and then we need a strategy. and it just does not feel that the president of the united states has his heart into it because the moment he gets off the teleprompter, we get this different answer saying it's manageable. manageable? that's when you're closing a lane on the freeway and you got to go down the freeway with three lanes instead of four. then you manage it. but this is isis. they want death and destruction to the united states of america! >> yep. >> some on the left, some democratic senators are also being critical of him.
5:04 am
senator warner came out and called for a new isis strategy. senator al franken desperate to separate himself from the president is in a battle for the seat says i was troubled by the president's suggestion that the administration has not developed a comprehensive strategy to address the growing threat of isis' activity in syria. >> that's right. elizabeth warren out of massachusetts with katie couric said this. >> isis is growing in strength and it has money and it has organization. it has the capacity to inflict real damage. so when we think about a response, we have to think about how to destroy that. we need to be working now full speed ahead with other countries to destroy isis. that should be our number one priority. >> that apparently is the president's priority while he's over there at the nato summit is to get more people, more countries on board.
5:05 am
meanwhile, here is one other senator, democrat from new hampshire, saying, quote, do not believe isil is manageable. agree these terrorists must be chased to the gates of hell. so she follows joe biden saying we should chase them to the gates of hell. meanwhile, a lot of people are still scratching their head, what do you mean, mr. president, contain it or manage it? remember a week or two ago he said it was a cancer? cancer can't be contained. a cancer can spread and become malignant and it has to be removed. it does appear that the president of the united states' strategy to some is simply to do his best to stop the political damage that isis is doing to his -- >> the democratic senators could have put their votes on the line. so instead of just talking rhetoric and putting out a statement, they soon will have a chance to vote on it. looks like the president will go back and try to get permission in order to use his war powers. >> he has 90 days, as judge
5:06 am
andrew napolitano, wisely laid out for us. 90 days and then another 90 days if he wants to continue on. at that point they will have to give authorization. is it the cart leading the cart? the president should be the one set o'clock the tone. many are saying that. if not in his conviction of tone, perhaps in his words. there are some that he just won't even say. he won't say radical islamist. i mean, the united arab emirates has taken a stronger stance on the problem. they have made remarks that are more direct than our own president, which is quite interesting. >> it would be so much easier to get a coalition together if the president would make it a priority, work the phones, do his face time or whatever the kids do. here is what the uae said. it's a middle east problem but quickly becoming the world's problem. now is the time to act. the uae is ready to join. they go on to say the international community is working to confront a threat. so are they going to use their planes or write their checks?
5:07 am
we'll see. >> meanwhile, charles krauthammer has this to say about the confusing messages that we're sending out at this point. >> the uae is not afraid to say islamic extremism. the president is. he calls it extremism. in fact, earlier in the show you showed the counterterrorism, our top guy called olson, and he said that the isis now is looking to outpace al-qaeda as the leader of the global extremist movement. he can not bring himself to say islamic. for god's sake, isis calls itself the islamic state and yes, we are so politically correct, we don't want to use the word islamic lest it be a slur on a great religion. >> but it's right there. meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry is trying to go ahead and poll the audience, see how many of the world's communities can help us out. he reached out to australia, the

for example, this employer testified at an administrative hearing that he expected that person to show up. he expected that person to organize it and that's why it was held as a work-related case. employers, here is the message. if you try control what happens and somebody is injured, even though they're not on the job at that time but in furtherance of your business, they could have the -- the employee could have a valid workers' compensation claim. >> so let me ask you about the rights of the employer business owner. if you're a small business owner or any business owner, should you have an employee sign a waiver? can you contest these claims? what are their rights? >> okay. really very important issue here. any employer can challenge the injury. what i mean by that, there have actually been cases -- i talked to a buddy of mine the other day knowing we were going to do this summing. this is all he's done tore 20 years. he's had cases where he represented the employer where an employee was injured somewhere else off the job, just
5:27 am
let's say playing their own baseball game, concealed it. came in to work, sort of fraudulently had an injury and put a claim in. yes. employers could always challenge the nature of the injury, that it happened on the job. and let's say they have an employee sign a waiver for this kick ball game. is it evidence that could support the employer's claim? yes. but again, every state, elisabeth, there are laws that control this. the courts may hold that's a course of document, that it's not enforceable. but employers have to be aware, depending upon the involvement and control, if somebody is injured off the job site in some type of event in furtherance of their business, the claim could be valid. >> gosh, i hope this doesn't mean a lack of company softball games. i was looking forward to brian striking me out. lot of liability, it seems. >> you know what? here is the other thing, if it's
5:28 am
legitimate claim, shear what you can recover. employee benefits. workers' compensation will pay for medical benefits, a portion of your wages. this is all dictated by law in the state where you live. >> by state? >> and they have what's called a ppd rating, permanent partial disability. let's take this guy that injured his knee. let's say it happened on the job. they could rate them at the end of the case and say, okay. your knee injury is 7% total body disability and there is a value that that's given. you could get that money and bottom line is you could get a certain amount of money. but you can never sue your employer in most cases for pain and suffering. that's a whole nother issue at another time. >> bob massi, your advice here never hurts. always helps. thanks for being with us. >> take care. debbie wasserman schultz takes on the war on women to a whole new level. >> scott walker has given women the bask his hand. >> did she just call the

5:47 am
joining us from minneapolis with brand-new detail, kmsp's tom lieden. what can you tell us about this guy? >> normally we're worried about the terrorist who gets the job at the airport. in this case, we may have had the airport worker who later became a terrorist. the airport confirming that who they knew by the name of ahmed, apparently his real name, worked at the airport for about a decade. shortly after 9-11 and began november 2001 all the way up to may of 2011. had two different jobs there for two different companies. had a job fueling planes for most of that decade. but then in the last year of his employment switched to another company, delta global s we cleaned planes. he had security clearance known as a badge that they wear on their lapel. it stands for secure identification display area. this allowed them to go up to a checkpoint at the airport and get really a very cursory inspection of their vehicle. they would look under the
5:48 am
vehicle with a mirror. but very little else. they didn't have to go through a metal detector. there was no bag check. that allowed them access right on to the tarmac and onto planes themselves. as part of his job cleaning airplanes, he was also responsible for securing those airplanes as well. now, the real question with him is when did he become radicalized? he left in 2011. look at his social media accounts, it looks like he may have been radicalized in the last two years, especially in terms of this notion of a grand muslim state, a caliphate, an isis, if you will. prior to that he had a real interest in somali issues. back in somalia fighting for al-shabab and somalis living in ethiopia. his radicalization in terms of isis looks like it happened fairly recently in the last two years after he left the airport. >> all right. interesting stuff. tom joining us from minneapolis talking about the isis fighter from america who died with isis. >> hopefully people are running more thorough background checks

fox news alert. president obama, david cameron meeting today at the nato summit in wales trying to come up with a comprehensive plan to combat isis and get others involved. while cameron has taken a strong stance verbally, many would argue our president has not. a former aide to margaret thatcher, foreign policy expert, heritage foundation, so what is going on here, nile? do you think the president is taking a step back? >> i think that president obama has displayed tremendous weakness with regard to the isis threat in contrast to the british prime minister has shown significant leadership. he's identified the nature of the enemy that we are facing, a tremendous evil. what david cameron calls the greatest terror threat ever actually to the west. and a threat which has to be emphatically defeated and crushed. he's also identified the enemy
5:54 am
itself islamist terrorists, islamist extremism which must be defeated. >> he's taken concrete steps, and everyone was struck by the stark differences between the two back to back days late last week with of the ugly beheading of two americans. he cons if indicated passports of suspects, or proposed it. deradicalization program. grab them and put them in the programs and also talking about there is no fly list. so having said that, is president obama with 100 air strikes, maybe cameron hasn't offered to do anything militarily. that's the truth. >> that's a very good point. and i think there is mounting pressure now on david cameron to commit to british military action. he has british special forces ready and prepared to go into iraq or even syria in order to free a british hostage and aid worker being held by isis. the british are preparing
5:55 am
special forces. but they have to join the military action against isis and also they have to push president obama for defeating isis. i think president obama is willing to put forth that strategy. i think the allies will join the united states. >> here is the thing, we know in life, relationships are everything. president obama reportedly does not dig a well before he's thirsty. he doesn't have the relationship with our allies. so when things go bad, he doesn't have anything to draw on. is that correct? >> i think that's a correct assessment. this is a president who has paid very little attention to u.s. allies on the world stage. he's treated britain very badly. in fact, a lot of british politicians view him as anti-british which doesn't help when you're trying build a coalition. president obama is no ronald
