he came to finding her hiding on the roof. smile, mornings are better with friends. >> you're watching "fox & friends." that's a great way to begin your day. >> welcome aboard. live from studio e in the heart of midtown manhattan where it's going to be a rainy day. thanks very much for joining us. >> the game could get rained out at home. >> or at least a rain delay. >> they told me derek jeter is retiring this year. i had no idea. >> joe tory is coming up. >> special relationship between those two. >> we start with a huge development. the certainly for that missing university of virginia student hannah graham, the man charged in her disappearance, her abduction now under arrest. for the latest let's go to heather childers for breaking details from the galveston, texas, area.
3:02 am
>> reporter: we've been following this story this morning. police, they're calling it an extremely lucky break. jesse matthew arrested more than 1,300 miles away from the university of virginia in galveston action texas. matthew was arrested after someone called police reporting a suspicious person hanging around the beach. when police showed up, they ran the license plate on his car and the result, the car belonged to him, the fugitive from justice with a warrant out of virginia. matthew was taken into custody. he did not put up a fight, we're told. as you can see in this video taken in peacefully. it was just released to fox news. authorities had been looking for him since saturday. that is when he sped swea from officers after leaving the spaferl police -- the charlottesville police station. investigators say they still don't know why matthew was in texas but they are in the process of bringing him back to virginia and that could take a couple of days. legal experts we talked with say running off to
3:03 am
texas not necessarily something that an innocent person would do and it could be used against him in court. meantime the search for graham continues. the reward for information in that case now up to $100,000. definitely hopeful that they will be closer to getting some answers now. back to you. >> heather, thank you very much. it's interesting. apparently this fellow down in texas, what he did was he went over to like a quick shop or something like that along the beach and said do you think anybody would mind if i just camped over there. so he pitched a tent. they don't know exactly when he showed up. the guy said yeah, you can stay there as long as you want to but there are bad mosquitoes this time of year so he bought bug spray and the cops came. >> 13 minutes now after the hour. speaking of 13, 13 airstrikes last night on 12 isil-controlled modular refineries. not major plants.
3:04 am
smaller plants. not the whole refinery. part of the refinery blown up. why? we're looking to knock off the way they're earning money, about $3 million a week, $2 million per day. i guess that's about $14 million per week. i guess the price went up. refineries are being targeted in the airstrikes, not major cities. they want to hold down casualties and somehow stop that revenue from flowing in. >> they produce 300 and 500 barrels of refined oil. the goal is to leave the refineries largely intact so they can be used again, obviously to support facilities. these were by isis used to additionally sell that oil on the black market in turkey. >> you don't want to punish the people of syria per se or assad. you want to keep the refinery up. also according to one of isis's twitter accounts, apparently 73 jihadis were killed. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that talks about it was so important for the president to have arab nations on board with
3:05 am
these airstrikes, and apparently the way it all worked was john kerry had been working behind the scenes with the king of saudi arabia. and saudi arabia sounds like had a lot of leverage over the united states. the saudis said, first of all, we want you to train the rebels because we don't like mr. assad. they said okay, we'll do that. then they said you've got to get rid of now al-maliki, the prime minister of iraq because he is a puppet of iran. once we did that, they were on board. they had a lot of leverage. you might say who's calling the shots. ultimately we are but it shows how important it is to have the saudis on board. >> the country's strategy was to say yes to everything we requested because last time we blew them off when we left them on the doorstep and decided not to have any airstrikes against assad because he had the chemical weapons. the saudis say i've got an idea. let's say yes to everything they request and not give them a chance to go back on
3:06 am
their word. >> what about this? the rebel group may not be on board with the airstrikes here. one of the moderate factions, part of the free syrian army alliance and a recipient of the missiles and training, issued a statement tuesday denouncing the, quote, external intervention that is the u.s.-led bombing campaign in syria as -- quote -- "an attack on the revolution." >> we're going to arm them. we're going to feed them. we're going to give them logistic support and they're saying they don't want it and they're outraged we're giving it to them? are you kidding me? >> how about you get what you get and you don't get upset. >> i know it works in the hasselbeck household. i'm not sure it works in syria. >> not to oversimplify it. >> also the people of syria apparently were very heartened that the united states was attacking. then they realized they're not going to take out assad, boo, there was actually some demonstrations about that yesterday. meanwhile, as we talk about these, all these very
3:07 am
technical missile strikes and what not, who else, who better to talk to than leah gabriel, a former naval aviator. part of the fox news team. nice to have you. explain how some of these things work. we've been hearing a lot about thomas tomahawks. >> what we're seeing is a lot of the technology we have, things like the tomahawk attack missile. this is an amazing weapon. our country demonstrated how good it is with those initial strikes. this is a weapon that can be launched from 1500 miles away from target and hit something very precise. it essentially has a picture in its brain of what the terrain it is flying over looks like and is comparing that for accuracy. we want to prevent collateral damage as we're
3:08 am
doing that. i think these strikes are kind of demonstrating our ability to do that. you also mentioned the g.p.s.-guided bombs that are being used. they have not named them yet but from my experience, i would guess the jdam attack mission is what they're using as a g.p.s.-guided bomb when they're dropping them from airplanes. that would be the weapon of choice. >> the tomahawk takes off on its own and the jdam gets dropped? >> yes. the tomahawk is a land attack missile, launched from a ship. the jdam is launched from an airplane. the jdam is a dumb bomb. we can fly high and fast over a target, maybe 30,000 feet or maybe 450 miles per hour, giving it gravity to work with and it will basically fly its way to the target. we don't even have to fly right over it.
3:09 am
we can pick the types of fuses we want. there is a picture we've seen from some of the strikes, a picture of the isis finance building. we may have it that we can pull up here. it shows how they took out a calm array on part of the rooftop. they said they used an air burst fuse. if they wanted to take out the building, they could have done that. they would have used a penetration fuse and intelligence analysts would probably have looked at the building, figured out how thick the walls were, how thick the ceiling was weaponeer for that building. >> there are critics that are concerned that the pinprick strikes as they have been nicknamed are not going to work. listen to dick cheney and what he had to say. >> pinprick attacks as they were doing initially with respect to the aerial campaign, that's what you get. you give the enemy time to adjust to go underground, to take care of protecting themselves from those
3:10 am
attacks and they're less effective when you telegraph what you're going to do. and barack obama has consistently demonstrated, i think, a refusal to accept good military advice in terms of how he actually uses the force. >> we're trying to attack in a way because we think one day we're going to eventually have to rebuild this stuff? >> not to go too much into the strategy, dick cheney has a unique perspective. he's somebody who has been on the inside of things, had access to a lot of intelligence. as you know i worked in the intelligence community in my last few years in the navy and i got a good perspective but can't argue with what the man says. there are reasons we didn't hit the entire building, that we hit the calm areas i described. we have the ability to do that. we're showing we have the ability to do it. i think some people would like to see us decimate isis. >> that might be the only thing we understand because we're watching them chop off heads. they chopped off the head
3:11 am
of another french mountaineer. next up it could be a german citizen in his 60's. we see that brutality and wonder what kind of message it is sending as we take off one building in one town. >> some want an eye for an eye. we have the best military in the world. there's a lot of really smart people working on this problem. >> they're taking their lead from the administration. >> that's true. to some degree, they certainly are. at the same time i think they have a lot of capability. there are a lot of smart people working on this problem and i have to put faith in our intelligence community for the reason they're doing the things they're doing. >> i saw ever jennifer griffin on twitter and saw the reaction when they found out it was a woman at the helm. >> i didn't know they let women fly airplanes. >> it's incredible. people were proposing to her on twitter.
3:12 am
she's 35 years old, apparently had the dream of doing this since she was a teenager, fighting for the u.a.e. to have it be a female fighting isis here, what message will that send? >> this is one i stay out of. when i was a fighter pilot, i thought of myself as a pilot. i didn't think of myself as a woman pilot or anything else. i have to guess that a woman who's done this probably, she probably feels the same. she probably sees herself as a combat fighter pilot, period. >> how does the enemy see her? the enemy does not have that equal pay mantra when they're not chopping off heads. >> if i can get into the head of a person who serves with isis, i would be a crazy person, so i can't answer that question. >> we've seen so many photos that have been devastating as they come across instagram or twitter as they use social media as a way to recruit. when we saw this photo of the female pilot, the major here, it was inspiring to so many, as i think that
3:13 am
you -- and this is what the message said. it says, hey, you were bombed by a woman. have a nice day. >> wouldn't we all love to have that t-shirt for some point in our lives, every woman? it's great. you mentioned the social media campaign that's kind of starting. i think it is important we look at the cyber aspect because they're using social media to recruit people because the u.s. is starting to take moves on our own to try to stop that, try to fight back. >> thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> coming up on this thursday, he mocked president bush's foreign policy, but president obama sure sounded a lot like president bush yesterday when he was talking about isis. former ambassador to the united nations john bolton, coming down the hall. >> terrifying photos show a woman being chased by a home intruder and how close he came to finding her

3:17 am
hi everybody. after saying that isis is not islamic, has president obama finally toughened up and changed his tune? >> the united states of america will work with a broad coalition to dismantle this network of death. in this effort, we do not
3:18 am
act alone nor do we intend to send u.s. troops to occupy foreign lands. instead, we will support iraqis and syrians fighting to reclaim their communities. >> joining us, fox news contributor, former u.n. ambassador to the united nations. he recognized that mantle behind him. john bolton, ambassador. what do you think of the president's speech? >> i thought it was a huge missed opportunity. he didn't say anything new about the campaign against the islamic state he hasn't said before. i think he lost the chance with the spotlight of the world there to elaborate on the case of why we're trying to do this. instead it was a repetition of what we're not going to do. i don't think he gained any new adhereants yesterday. >> the other thing, he actually brought up where he thinks america is vulnerable. we've got our problems too. we've got our problems in ferguson. >> he can say that was not an example of moral equivalence. the fact is even by
3:19 am
mentioning ferguson, missouri, where we still don't know the facts, let's be clear, by mentioning it in the same speech as isis he's declaring moral equivalency. i thought that was an incredible mistake by the president. >> there was similar rhetoric which president obama when he was senator obama despised by president bush. >> we have reaffirmed again and again that the united states is not and never will be at war with islam. islam teaches peace. >> the terrorists are violating the tenets of every religion including the one they invoke. >> there can be no reasoning, no negotiation with this brand of evil. the only language understood by killers like this is the language of force. >> this threat cannot be ignored.
3:20 am
this threat cannot be appeased. >> we are heirs to a proud legacy of freedom and we're prepared to do what is necessary to secure that legacy for generations to come. >> we did not ask for this mission, yet there is honor in history's call. >> ambassador, similarities are there. president bush was knocked. will president obama be mocked? not so far. >> no but i thought it was quite interesting yesterday how restrained the reaction was in the hall. these are his peeps at the u.n. general assembly and yet they greeted the speech in much the same way president george w. bush used to describe the general assembly as the wax museum because they didn't react to anything he said. i think president obama had the opportunity to make his case, not to discuss violating international norms and the importance of multilateral institutions which is where his heart really is instead of the struggle against isis.
3:21 am
>> thanks so much for your analysis and what's going on just down the road. as we change gears, a customer claims a costco co-worker karate chopped him because he refused to show his receipt. why do we have to show receipts? i'm a member, by the way. woooo.

breaking overnight, a big terror arrest. counterterror cops in london busted nine men accused of supporting terror groups. one of them a radical preacher who has publicly supported isis and even called for britain to become an islamic state. he's accused of leaving his kid in a hot car to die but that child's father won't face the same fate. the death penalty is off the table for justin harris. prosecutors said he researched hot car deaths days before his son cooper died in one.

3:27 am
receipt, if it is checked, is that purchase yours? >> there is a policy that allows the stores to check your bags and your receipt if there is a reasonable suspicion that you have partaken in a theft. that can extend into the parking lot of the store as long as it is on the store's property. however, in this situation, the store is still required to issue a reasonable response. here there might not have been a suspicion that a theft occurred. this seems to be about i want to check your receipt. >> where does the karate chop fall into place? >> the broader issue is don't businesses have a right to protect their financial interests? i'm a corporate ethics chairn. i help companies make financial decisions. a business is not a charity. it is a for-profit institution. this makes it harder for honest customers to do
3:28 am
business. because they're stealing from the store. the store is going to have to raise prices. >> we want to keep the presumption that not everybody is a potential criminal. we should be using these tactics when there is a suspicion something may have occurred instead of the blanket policy that says every single person is under suspicion. >> i think other stores have faced this before. this is a private membership location. if this happened at wal-mart or target or a big-top store that is not membership-related? if you decide to check based on suspicion, you're leaving yourself vulnerable to possible, you're going after me because i'm a woman. you're going after me because of -- >> target and warmth, -- wal-mart should apprise customers you're going to have to show your receipt. it's not a big deal, a minor annoyance. if customers don't like that, they don't have to shop there. >> you can say no. if they want to check your receipt outside a target or
3:29 am
wal-mart, you can say no. we're talking about the need for possible additional training for employees how to deal with these issues because this is a safety concern. we're talking about somebody whose leg was broken in an altercation over a receipt. >> does an employee have the right to protect themselves. costco is alleging this gentleman here made the first move. >> this happens so rarely. the broader issue is should companies be entitled to ask customers for receipts. >> what do you think? >> absolutely. a business is not a charity. it is a for-profit institution and they're justified in protecting their financial interests. if we as customers don't like that idea, we can shop elsewhere. >> i think you need to have that element of was there a suspicion that something illegal occurred. we can't just assume everyone is a potential criminal. while i do appreciate that the store needs to have tactics in place to make sure they don't lose money, i don't like the idea of

be? how could he have called in four days after he passed away? that wasn't even the reason i started the whole process. the reason i started the whole process was the 70-day wait that was required of him to be able to see a neurologist. >> that 70-day wait seemed so extraordinary because you had been told by experts in this field since then what? >> that if he had been seen sooner or expeditiously, that he would possibly still be in our life. and he, the expert gave him more than a 50% chance of still being alive today had he seen a doctor right away. >> that is just so heartbaking. michael, how are you trying to help the family? >> well, i mean, there's a number of different levels. i mean, when a parent loses a child, it shouldn't happen.

it's unnatural to lose a child. it shouldn't happen. there are -- the level that i mean lisa has been incredible on working not only with the medical issues that her son had and being an advocate on getting treatment for individuals like her son. but beyond that working for veterans and making sure that the time lines get dealt with, that there's not these horrible things where they're changing records after the fact so that they can meet certain guidelines and making sure this doesn't happen to anybody else. i'm helping her as much from the legal side as well as dealing with all the different parts for her. it is at time overwhelming. >> you are talking about the falsification of federal records. i would imagine normally somebody should go to jail for something like that? >> what they'll do with that, i don't know. there's absolutely some very big questions and there's been some other people that have come forward over the time that suggest this is not an isolated incident. this is just an incident where it's solid.

3 1/2 months come and gone and the pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged army deserter beau bergdahl and what will happen. >> critics fear the delayed investigation is shaping up to be a white wash designed to protect the president. but is beau bergdahl a problem the white house wants you to forget about? we're going to ask senior news judicial analyst, judge napolitano. >> good morning. very good introduction. it is a problem the white house would like us to forget about.
3:54 am
>> why? >> because the president's personal involvement in it. there is a lot of unusual things. ordinarily when one is charged with a crime which could bring the death penalty, desertion where someone dies as a result of the desertion, two people died trying to find him, two soldiers. >> at least. >> ordinarily that person has been charged, arrested, confined, sometimes given bail. sometimes not given bail. bergdahl hasn't been urge whiched. then a team of investigators led bay major leads the investigation. in this case it's led bay general, unheard of. third interesting and unique thing, ordinarily the crime of desertion does not involve the president of the united states. but the manner in which he came back here, which is not his fault, of course, clearly involves the president of the united states. did the president provide material assistance to a
3:55 am
terrorist organization by releasing five of their leaders in order to get sergeant bergdahl back? he does not want that to be aid at a criminal trial. >> hard to believe this is happening. on top of that, compare what the bergdahls were able to do, communicate back and forth with the captors, constantly in touch with the pentagon, compared to the journalists who were captured in syria. the state department had no communication with them. their heads were chopped off and they were not able to speak to them. >> great point, brian. it makes you wonder about the government's priorities, particularly in the sotloff case and the foley case. both cases the two american journalists were told that if they attempted to extricate their sons, the government would back off. >> everybody knew what he was up to. i'm not crazy about the mission. i'm leaving. there is evidence that shows and proves that he deserted. >> there is plenty of evidence. the other side of this story is
3:56 am
it takes a while to accumulate evidence. the government knows more about this than we do. the general who is leading the investigation. this kid may be nuts and it may be impossible for them to prosecute him. they have to sort that out. >> will it play better to not proceed with speed at this point based on the fact that we have now officially declared war on isis? >> yes. yes. that's the answer. >> judge, always a pleasure thanks very much. >> thank you. coming up, are you an at-will employee? do you even know what that means? you should. judge napolitano does because you could be fired for no reason at all. our legal expert, bob massi, knows something about it, too, and he's coming up in the next hour on at that point plus, do you know what women want? yeah, you. we'll tell you the number one thing they're looking for from guys. i was going to keep it a secret. ♪ ♪

4:05 am
and pass on that appreciation to the detectives that were involved. beyond that, my understanding is you've already reported is that he was on the beach camping. he was spotted by someone who called police. they responded and took him into custody. beyond that, i don't know that i'm clear to what the facts and circumstances are leading up to his arrest. >> where is he now? >> he's still in custody in texas. the extradition process is still underway. >> do you have the feeling or reason to suspect that with this case of jesse matthew, that you are dealing with a serial kidnapper or serial killer? >> i think it's way too premature to come to any conclusions in that regard. i would be speculating otherwise. >> what do you -- what makes you feel as though he might be involved somehow? >> well, as i have indicated many times, we've been very tight-lipped with respect to the evidence. during the course of this investigation, we've been closely assisted by our commonwealth attorneys chief prosecuting attorney. there came a point in time earlier this week where we
4:06 am
gathered some additional evidence which got us to the probable cause level with respect to applying for an arrest warrant and that's what we did. we're still waiting for additional evidence at our state lab. hopefully we'll get that toward the end of the week and further advance the investigation. the real priority is continue to search for hannah graham. >> has the car proven beneficial in order to move forward on this investigation? if so, how? >> well, what i'll say, and again, i'm not trying to be evasive. but you can certainly understand what types of evidence we might acquire from such things as a vehicle and a house. we've searched his apartment. we searched his vehicle. we've taken clothing from the apartment. of course, we're searching very aggressively with respect to that vehicle to see if any evidence might be there. >> chief, i know you talked to the sheriff down in the galveston area yesterday. did he indicate whether or not jesse matthew had done any talking? i know when the initial sheriff's deputy went up to him on the beach, he lied to him
4:07 am
because he goes, i just ran your plate, you're that guy. he goes, no, i'm not him. has he done any other talking to the cops? >> i'm not aware of any. >> is he cooperative? >> in what regard? >> is he providing any -- is he resistant at all? >> he's provided no information certainly to us. with respect to the deputies in galveston, i've not been aware of his level of cooperation. >> has anything happened over the last 24, 48 hours to make you optimistic or hopeful that you're on the trail of finding hannah? >> i can't point to any one thing. i will tell you that i met with hannah's parents yesterday morning. we tried to communicate with them daily. i can't not look at those two individuals and not have hope for their daughter. they've not lost hope. i have not lost hope.óp3 we're going to continue to be hopeful until there is evidence to the contrary. my goal is to help them find their daughter.
4:08 am
>> sure. there is $100,000 reward leading to her whereabouts. the people watching right now, chief, how can they help? >> well, certainly if you're in the area, nine counties that surround us, we've asked that citizen, particularly those with large parcels of land to search their own property and be thorough about that search. when it's concluded, call our tip line so we can check that box. the other thing is that particularly from that time of hannah's disappearance to the time of it being reported to the police, we're concerned about that large block of time and just with the habits and behaviors of jesse matthew might have been. let me give you an example. if at 8:00 o'clock on saturday morning, september 13, someone saw jesse matthew and he was pumping gas at a gas station. he was alone. it was in a grocery store buying milk and he was alone. or he was somewhere else in charlottesville and he was alone, that's important information for us to know pause we're trying to shrink that time
4:09 am
line so we can again be more efficient about how we go about the search for hannah graham. >> in the big picture, how would you characterize jesse's behavior from the disappearance up until today? >> you know, his behavior saturday after coming to the police station and then abruptly leaving and what followed there after is bizarre behavior. but again, i don't know that's a fair characterization, not knowing what might have motivated that would be speculative for me to speak further with regard to that. >> does he have a lawyer? >> he asked for a lawyer when he came into the police station. the commonwealth attorney helped to acop date that question. he met with a lawyer that day. they met and spoke briefly. the two of them left. it's my understanding that that attorney has been retained. he's a local attorney here in charlottesville and that's my understanding at this point. >> thank you for joining us this morning. we want to let everyone know that to your note, if there is any information, there is a tip

4:26 am

4:45 am
branson giving employees unlimited vacation. he thinks it will boost morale. the policy only applies to those who work in the company's main offices. who is going to work? >> why would you bother? talking about those employees. do you know your rights as an employee when it comes to employment? do you know what at-will employment is? are you an at-will employee? we want to make sure you're not taken advantage of by your company or your employer. that's why bob massi is on your side. he joins us right now from las vegas. good morning to you, bob. >> good morning. >> so we started this segment, we're talking about at-will employees. what does at-will employment mean for the employer and the employee? >> well, basically means that an employee can be fired at will for any reason or for no reason. so the employer has the right to say, you're fired, for any
4:46 am
reason and no reason and the employee could wake up one morning and come to the employer and say, you know what? i want to leave. i'm not bound by anything. i'm going to get another job. most states in our country, steve, are at-will employment states simply because of the fact it's just the way it's been set up over the years. >> if the employer can fire you for any reason, that means it doesn't have to be a very good reason, doesn't it? >> doesn't have to be any reason at all, steve. really for all intents and purposes, the employer could just maybe not like the way that you're dressed, for example, never even tell you that. just say you're fired. you're out of here. i don't need you anymore, things of that nature. it happens a lot. it's an insecure position for everybody. but at the same time, the employee has the right to walk in and say i got another opportunity. i'm moving to new york, i'm moving to florida, i'm out of here. >> there are probably people watching now wondering if i'm an at-will employee. how do you tell the difference? >> there is a couple things you should know. first of all, if you have an
4:47 am
employment contract where you work, it sort of takes it outside the concept of an at-will termination because in the employment contract, it gives reasons for cause to terminate somebody, or to suspend somebody. the other thing is, steve, if you're an at-will employee, there are certain things employers cannot do that violate public policy. this is just a few examples. for example, if you're an at-will employee and you're injured on the job, it's a workers' compensation case, under most states, public policy says you can't fire that employee because they were injured on the job. you can't fire an employer for being a whistle blower. you can't fire an employee if they get jury duty. so the states have sort of protected at-will employment in saying, look, if in fact there are certain things under the law you are entitled to, such as workers' compensation because of your injury, if an employer retaliates and fires them, it could be a wrongful termination lawsuit. and of course, if you have an employment contract, both sides are bound by that contract.
4:48 am
>> so bob, some people have contracts and others don't. can you be an at-will employee and then your company says, you know what? i want to offer you some sort of a written agreement where you come every day to work and then what happens? >> well, any employer at any time could advance an employee and say listen, i like what you're doing. i like the services you're rendering. i'm going to reduce it to writing 'cause i want you for a long time, steve, bob, elisabeth, brian. we want you here for a long time. any time they can do that and the employee has the right to say i don't know if this is the career i want to follow. so an employer at any time could come to an employee to advance them to reduce it to writing. >> we've got a map we're going to put up. at least states apparently that where they ban or restrict these contract agreements. california, montana, north dakota and oklahoma. >> yeah. let's talk about it. what we're talking about in these contracts if you have an employment contract or
4:49 am
otherwise, what we call restrictive covenants or covenants not to compete, meaning that if you're working at a particular field, there may be a provision in your contract that says, if you leave for any reason, you can not compete for a period of time. most states enforce that. it has to be reasonable time and reasonable location and almost every state has that. but there are some exceptions as you've shown on that map. >> bob massi talking about our employee rights. thank you, sir. >> thank you, steve. it's about ten minutes before the top of the hour. up next, we're almost on monkeying around. behind the scenes with some of your favorite animal stars. look at that. that's the cat from "meet the fokkers." on this date in 1970, the partridge family premiered on tv. sandra day o'conner was the first female supreme court

good morning. today is thursday, september 25. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. the suspect charged with the disappearance of hannah graham captured in texas. >> he was on a beach camping. he was spotted by someone who called police. they responded and took him into custody. >> is jesse matthew talking? are we any closer to finding hannah? and as the united states unleashes new air strikes on isis' oil trade, the syrian rebels who were -- we're supposed to be helping suddenly have a change of heart. we'll tell but it. >> and more evidence that dad knows best. the one thing willie robertson does before his daughter is allowed to hit the dance floor.
5:01 am
>> i want to hear that. >> so do i. mornings are better with friends. watch our pictures float. >> all right. welcome aboard, folks. hour three of "fox & friends" live from new york city where all the way from washington right up to the boston area today, if you're going to work, bring your umbrella. >> this is a perfect time to book some of that slide we had last week. it was pretty much the same weather. if you have a change of clothes -- >> thank you for being with us here. we so appreciate that. we're going to start right now with a huge development. on the search for the missing university student, hannah graham. we have some updates here. >> yep, at this hour, the man charged in her abduction now behind bars in texas. let's get the very latest. heather childers has the breaking details.
5:02 am
>> a lot of people breathe ago partial sigh of relief. police are calling it an extremely lucky break. jesse matthew arrested 1300 miles away from the university of virginia near galveston, texas. matthew was arrested after someone called police. they reported a suspicious person was hanging around the beach area there. when police showed up, they ran the license plate on his car. the result? the car belonged to a fugitive from justice with a warrant out of virginia. matthew was taken into custody. he did not put up a fight, we're told. you can see right there in that video as he's being taken in. this was just released to fox news. authorities had been looking for him since saturday. that is when he sped away from officers after leaving the charlottesville police station. they think that he was the last person to see hannah graham before she went missing. investigators say they don't know why matthew was in texas, but they are in the process of bringing him back to virginia. that could take a couple of days. legal experts we talked with say
5:03 am
running off to texas, that is not something that any innocent person would do. it could be used against him in court. meantime, the search for graham, that continues. charlottesville police chief saying this earlier on "fox & friends". >> i will tell you that i have met with hannah's parents yesterday morning. we try to communicate with them daily. i can't not look at those two individuals and not have hope for their daughter. they've not lost hope and i have not lost hope. we're going to continue to be hopeful until there is evidence to the contrary. >> the reward for information in this case now at $100,000. steve, brian, elisabeth? >> thank you very much. by the way, apparently somebody there in the galveston area saw him on the beach, called the sheriff. sheriff came and as heather was talking about, they ran the plates and it came back that that was the wanted car. the officer said to him, you're that guy. and then he lied to them. so in addition to the charges
5:04 am
that he's facing in the commonwealth of virginia now, he's charged with failing to identify himself as a fugitive and giving false information. he obviously has been denied bail and will be probably headed to virginia very shortly. >> let's change gears right now and talk about what happened last night. we had a series of air strikes, 13 air strikes overall. 12 on the isil-controlled oil refineries, not in major cities, but outskirts. we're trying o stop the money flow from flowing in. they're doing it by smuggling oil out. so we're going to little by little, rein in the banks, sanction the banks dealing with them and hopefully stopping the oil flow and we get a little more aggressive than we have been. so far one of the biggest stories to come out today in the "wall street journal" has it first, there is some editorials to support it, saudi arabia is the one who is actually laid the ground work with the secretary of state on this bale plan that includes four arab nations. >> yeah. >> the good news is that all the aircraft from the strikes that were ramped up last night made
5:05 am
it back safely. those refineries, getting them where it hurts. you're thinking about, they would like to use these locations in the future. so they don't want to destroy them completely, which puts us into these precise attacks we've been seeing. >> we're going to talk to eric bolling. brian, talk being how behind the scenes, saudi arabia really had a lot of leverage over the united states. remember last year the president said he was going to take out assad essentially with that red line and then he pulled the plug on that. and the saudis were furious. so now this year you got john kerry going to saudi arabia talking to the king, saying will you help us? and the king said okay. yeah, we'll help you. but you've got to train the syrian rebels because we want assad out. and you got to get rid of al-maliki, the guy who is prime minister of iraq because he's a puppet for iran. so saudi arabia, very cageyly got rid of a couple of big things that have been on their bucket list. they wanted to get rid of assad
5:06 am
and they also wanted to do something about maliki. and so what did they do? they got the united states to agree, we'll do both those things, which makes you wonder who is calling the shots, is it the president or the saudis? the saudi high school a lot of leverage, but ultimately the president needed the saudis because once they were on board, according to the "wall street journal," then they were able to get other arab partners that currently part of the coalition. >> i never heard this before. they said whatever the u.s. requests, say yes, because we want to give the u.s. and president obama a chance to say now look, i tried to get the vote of congress, they didn't want to give it to me. so i couldn't do anything. so just say yes. so he said yes and they rallied. what i find reassuring is that they see isis as a threat. sometimes i wonder with a wink and a nod if they do see it as a threat. now if they can rein in the curriculum that's giving birth to a lot of these crazies, then i would be really excited. >> part of the deal was we were going to help train and arm the rebels. well, you would think they would love that.
5:07 am
they would love the fact that we've got the u.s.-led coalition. no. the rebel group actually says they're not on board with the air strikes. of the free syrian army denounced the bombing and calls it an attack on his revolution. >> that's right. >> because al nusra is pro al-qaeda, anti-assad. they heard we're going to wipe out isis and double down on isis. >> they do not want, quote, external intervention. clearly depicted by their statement there. >> speaking of external intervention, that was the business that leah gabriel was in before she started for fox. she was a navy aviator. so you've joined us this morning to kind of give people an idea of the munitions that are involved in these strikes. >> right. we've seen some of the strikes. we've seen the things they've been able to take out, things
5:08 am
like comm rays on the buildings. these are highlighting some of the technology and unique capabilities we have. one of them is, as we talked about earlier, the tomahawk land attack missile. this is very niece. what we're seeing fired from ships. more than 40 attacks in that very first night of strikes from ships. this tomahawk land pack missile is a gps-guided missile, can take out specific targets. can be weaponeered with a different type of fuse depending on the target it's trying to hit. like the comm ray. >> where they took out satellite dishes? >> yes. they call it a comm's ray. they used fuses that cause bombs to go off while they were still in the air, basically just take those out instead of using a penetration fuse that would have gone through the building itself. >> when you say fuse, people think like where you light something. how does this fuse work?
5:09 am
>> that would be something like a timed fuse. they would time out that cord and figure out how long it would take for that to basically burn. but basically it's do you want the bomb to blow up before it hits -- >> it's a computer program? kind of? >> we use computer programs to weaponeer and set the fuses. i'm not an ordinance man. but some of the other weapons that we're seeing, they're using a lot of precision-guided munitions. i think it kind of let's us see some of the intelligence that we've been able to gather from the surveillance flights that have been flown because these pictures are coming from somewhere. we have these before and after pictures. so those pictures are basically handed to planners who then say we want you to strike this particular target and then maybe it's the weapon for that. >> would you say precision is good here in terms of reducing collateral damage, 'cause some say pin pricks won't work. too precise. >> you're talk being two different things here.
5:10 am
>> here is dick cheney with sean last night. >> when you have pin prick attacks as they were doing initially with respect to the arab campaign, that's what you get. give the enemy time to adjust, to go underground, to take care of protecting themselves from these attacks and less effective when you telegraph what you're going to do. barak obama has consistently demonstrated i think a refusal to accept good military advice in terms of how he actually uses the force. >> i just remember with bosnia air campaign, people were getting so impatient. i remember bush 41 getting so impatient. if we're bombing and they are still beheading and this keeps going on week after week after week, there is going to be pressure for us to get more aggressive. but right now, we're bombing sections of buildings. not even buildings. >> right. >> just sections. >> we are. and there is a reason for that. i don't know what it is, but i know there is a reason that they're picking only these particular targets. i think he also makes a good
5:11 am
point about strategy and trying to take out the enknee a more full way. but you mentioned collateral damage. i think the u.s. military is really showing their annual to avoid collateral damage. we can even pick a heading that we want to attack on to avoid hitting mosques and schools. i think being able to see these, as you're calling them pin pricks, the military calls these surgical strikes. like surgery, taking out something very specific. >> somebody doing some of the surgical strikers, you would appreciate is a woman, she's a pilot from the united arab emirates. there she is. it's interesting, also there was a sign on twitter that said, isis, you've been bombed by a woman. and we did ask for your reaction and we got it. there is the instagram right there. >> gave a lot of people a pump yesterday for sure. tina on facebook says god bless her, we need more woman power. >> and another said she became an overnight inspiration to young girls all around the said, you just got to love this.
5:12 am
what an accomplished woman. so proud of her. very nicely done. >> ambassador bolton told us earlier today that by these governments allowing a woman to do the bombing, they're saying we're breaking with isis and they know that is twice as bad knowing that a woman is bombing to those twisted minds that we're fighting against. >> that culture, it sends a message. and she is an inspiration. it's wonderful to see somebody who this was her dream to become a combat fighter pilot. she's too long it and then she's going out and executing her mission professionally. wonderful to see that. >> mission accomplished. we're giving her a thumbs up. >> we sure are. thank you. >> thanks for having me. coming up, it's like something out of a horror movie. a woman on the run from an intruder. but take a look at this. that intruder is right behind her, right by that window. we're going to tell you what's going on in this picture next. do you think the nsa is wrong to spy on americans? what about now with the current threat of isis? is spying okay in this instance?

trigger. he is considered armed and very dangerous. he's on the f.b.i.'s ten most wanted list and they're encouraging the public to stay out of the woods until he's caught. guys? >> all right. thank you very much. rick leventhal in pennsylvania. when they catch him, rick will be there. steve? logical advances that allow u.s. intelligence agencies to pinpoint an al-qaeda cell in yemen or an e-mail between two terrorists in the sahel also mean many routine communications around the world are within our reach at a time when more and more of our lives are digital, that prospect is disquieting for all of us. >> back in january the president called nsa surveillance methods that help catch terrorists disquieting. but does isis and the latest threat make nsa surveillance more acceptable to you? let's have a debate. morgan wright is the former senior advisor for the state department's antiterrorism assistance program and julian
5:25 am
sanchez is the senior fellow specialize noting in privacy. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> morgan, let's start with you. does the fact that we've got this isis threat now, does that make people, does that change people's feelings about the nsa, because we all know that the nsa is spying on all of us. >> right. the french said at one time, everybody spies on everybody. it's the policies around the collection of information and intelligence. steve, we both come from kansas. i'm a former detective from there. i don't care about sources and methods when i'm protecting my state and area, i want to know about information. we got to remember that ultimately this information is going to come back to the law enforcement officials, the men and women who are out on the streets every day protecting us. lot of people don't realize there is 10,000 fewer new york police officers today than there were on 9-11. so the value of intelligence is far more important today than it was ten years ago. >> julian, the thing that bothers you and bothers many americans is, okay, the fight
5:26 am
thing was about foreigners. we're talking about the bulk collection of every american's digital life, the phone and everything else. and that's where they have gone over the line, in your estimation. >> that's right. there is new reason we can't limit, for example, the indiscriminate collection of millions of americans' phone records without hampering our ability to fight adversaries like isis. the director of national intelligence has said the reform on the table in the senate now would not hinder their foreign intelligence mission. there is mo reason. >> when you look at the record, let's not go that far back, i mean, we've heard that the nsa needs to collect all this stuff. they know if they wanted to, they could look in the record and know that i called my wife three times and called a bunch of other people as well yesterday. but here is the thing, if this program that spies on americans is so effective, why didn't it
5:27 am
catch the guys in boston? they were hiding in plain sight making phone calls all over the place? >> it's not a failure of technology. it's a failure of policy at that point. it goes back to who is talking to who and the prohibitions around it. i've been a proponent of technology. right now there are people in the united states who are not american citizens planning to do us harm. we have to realize that this threat is not just foreign. it's also domestic. we've got to be able to have the tools at our disposal to be able to address that. and i'm not saying that the bulk collection that gets into a policy issue, but i'm saying is when you have somebody overseas talking to somebody here and we have a reason to believe this is terrorist relled information, i think opens the door to say what else is going on here? >> julian, i'll give you the last 20 seconds. >> when we have specific reason to look at someone, we can get targeted orders. every independent review of the bulk program has said in fact it wasn't useful.
5:28 am
they never found a case where we needed that program to get intelligence about bad actors in the u.s. when they did get information, it was duplicating what the f.b.i. was able to get through traditional targeted orders. that's all we need, i think, to fight the fight domestically. >> the debate goes on. all right. julian and morgan, thank you for joining us from d.c. >> you bet. 28 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, a marine dies waiting for his appointment at the v.a. and four days after he died, something even more disturbing surfaced. did the v.a. try to cover up a massive mistake? that's next. then he's grabbing luggage at the airport. one problem, it's not his luggage. what's going on at the airport? should you be concerned about people like that? ♪ ♪ and a gentle wavelike motion... aahhh- ahhhhhh. liberate your spine, ahhh-ahhhhhh aflac!

fox news alert. the labor department releasing brand-new weekly jobless numbers. it just happened moments ago. 293,000 new jobless claims. that's more than last week and a little bit less than we expected >> that's right. >> a little bit of an improvement. overnight the u.s. carrying out more air strikes against isis. this time targeting air oil refineries. what's the financial impact of these strikes and how should they be targeted now? joining us now to discuss that very topic is co-host of "the five," eric bolling. good morning. brian was commenting on your jeans earlier today. >> i heard about that. what happened is i -- you have the courage to have an alternate outfit when you come here. i would come in no shirt, no socks, no shoes. >> yeah. so i change when i get here. >> it's another topic for another day. let's talk a little bit about, okay, so what we did was
5:33 am
attacked some oil refineries. they're being described as modular, which sounds small. that's probably better than blowing up the great big refineries. >> actually, i'm not sure it is. first of all, i love this strategy. i talked about it last week that i recommended we do hit the oil infrastructure within syria and iraq, the ones that isis is controlling. syria has a little bit of oil production. they're taking eye -- isis is stealing some oil from syria. iraq has a ton of oil production. they have a million barrels a day worth in iraq. >> the reason we're talking to you about oil is you dealt in oil on wall street. >> 20 years in the business drilling, selling, transporting. >> what's the impact? >> what do you is you've cut off isis' ability to raise money. the reason why isis was spreading so fast, the reason why isis went from a few hundred fighters to 31,500 fighters in a short period of time, they had a lot of money and paying mercenaries. they were paying various
5:34 am
terrorists or various people who were looking for the fight to come over and fight for them. >> ten times the amount. >> here is what's going on. 13 mood car oil refineries, i think it's misnomer. i think refineries. i don't think that's what we're hitting. we talked to the state department. paged through everything they've talked about these strikes. 12 targets were hit. 13 strikes. 12 were hit. modular oil refineries could probably be small ways of pulling oil out of the ground. in the middle east, it's sand and the oil is close to the top. the smart thing to do and i hope they're doing this, is hit all the crude oil installations. don't hit the refineries. refineries -- >> take years to make. >> and billions of dollars to fix it. it will be our responsibility to fix it later. if you hit an oil processing plant pulling the oil outç of e ground, very easy to fix. very cheaply and very quickly once this is stopped. i don't know if we have it, i asked for a map of syria.
5:35 am
if you have that, do we have that? anyway, so here -- perfect. so isis is in syria. the big issue right now, right now the concerted effort have isis surrounded with the exception of that one up top, turkey. we have iraq covered, saudi arabia covered, jordan in the south covered. and then there is water. to the east, you need turkey to play ball with us. you need turkey to get involved because the oil they're pulling out of the ground in syria and iraq goes straight up through that turkish border and sold to the population areas within turkey. >> they've always been smuggle smuggleed. >> ninety-two dollars a barrel for oil on the free market. they're selling it for 30 to 35 bucks. >> you have to have turkey say no. >> yeah. >> they like cheap oil. so it's definitely going to affect their economy. you have to start hitting the trucks that are transporting. these are wide open roads. >> even better, hit the roads.
5:36 am
eliminate their ability to put the trucks on the road. these hell fire missiles, tomahawks are very expensive to spend one for a single truck. you may not want to do that. you may want to disrupt the roads and certainly the roads leading up to turkey where they're selling it. >> my last point is we could make up the difference on the market with the oil that we produce. we have to -- we could commit to doing that. >> you mean help them out? >> yeah. if iraq stops producing and syria gets sunk -- >> the smartest thing we're doing is pushing isis back into syria, letting them locate in syria because it's really, really well producing oil fields are in iraq. you want to keep them in syria. there is not a lot of oil. once you get them covered from all sides, you win the war. i think this is great, smart war tactic. >> yesterday they started to cut off the cash. all right. eric bolling, check him out on "the five" at 5. have you seen that, lea? >> of course i've seen that.
5:37 am
>> who do you have for us? >> on november 26, 2012, marine corporal jordan bizman died while waiting for v.a. treatment. after something disturbing happened, the v.a. said he canceled that appointment. one problem? he died four days before he allegedly canceled that very appointment. his mother joined us earlier to comment. >> how could he have called in four days after he passed away? the reason i started the whole process was his 70-day wait that was required of him to be able to see a neurologist. if he'd have been seen sooner or expeditiously, that he would have possibly still been alive. >> the v.a. has not commented. and he's grabbing luggage at the airport, but one problem? it's not his. phoenix police releasing brand-new video of a man stealing luggage from sky harbor
5:38 am
airport. you can see him walking off the airport train and into the baggage claim where he steals a woman's bag, then gets right back onto that train. police offering a a $1,000 reward for his arrest. want to take a picture of federal land? you may have to actually pay for it. feds are pushing a law that's aimed at the press trying to take pictures or film on federal lands. it would even apply to people taking photos or videos with a cell phone. as for anyone who wants to take photos or film commercially, they must pay $1,500 for a permit or face $1,000 fine. check out this terrifying photo showing the moment a woman hid from an intruder on her roof of her home. look how close he comes to actually finding her. she grabbed her phone and crawled into that hiding spot when she realized he had broke into her home. police in los angeles arrived minutes after she called 911 and gave her a ladder to get down from there. those are your headlines. maria, over to you. >> good morning. good to see you.

hundreds of colorado students protesting history curriculum changes that would promote patriotism. >> they want to take away our curriculum, u.s. history. i mean, the students don't deserve that. we deserve to know everything that went on. >> it's not right to teach them what's right about america. we need to teach them what we did wrong. >> the censorship of u.s. history is wrong. and i think it's communist. >> is the whole story being told? our next guest says these students are being used as political pawns.
5:45 am
here to explain is the president of jefferson county board of education, ken witt. thanks for being with us. we're not talking about a few students here. we're talking 500 from one school. 400 from another. 300. today more are probably expected to do the same. what's the core issue here? the rumor is there is going to be censorship. $40 million in cuts. are these rumors true? >> therein lies the issue. i personally went to one of these web sites and saw the discussion that these students were having for the reason they wanted to walk out. they talked about $40 million in cuts that we wanted to eliminate slavery from u.s. history, that we wanted to eliminate civil rights discussion and martin luther king from history. these are simply not true. and that's the unfortunate part what is true is that this board recently decided to give significant raises to our teachers in a way that did not fit the old union model of some get raises, some don't. but instead, we instituted
5:46 am
performance-based compensation. that's what the board did do at the last meeting. we also discussed seating a curriculum review committee to form the board and look at what curriculum, whether there are changes, what the changes are and whether or not they're appropriate for our district because that's our responsibility. >> those materials were set to promote citizenship and the positive parts of our nation here and not condone civil disorder or disregard for the law. i like the fact that students are out there getting excited about history. what concerns me is that what i'm hearing from you, and correct me if i am wrong, is that there is someone else behind this planting it and using these students for their own gain. your response? >> that's the unfortunate situation that's going on. i believe that there is a significant amount of union conflict right now that we would like to not have. the issue is that it's easy to get children out. it's easy to use kids as pawns
5:47 am
and it's not right. we have a union contract that's expiring in august of this year. there is significant concern over the changes that this board have instituted to implement even equalization of choice across our schools, performance pay to insure we have an effective teacher in every classroom. >> of course. >> and soon we'll be renegotiating that contract and that back story is very important to understand why there seems to be this continuing turmoil that's being stirred up. >> are more protests expected today or are these kids getting back in class? >> there are rumors that additional schools will protest today. it's kind of rolled through our schools and i hope that ends soon. we need our kids in their classroom. i welcome their participation and i laud their interest in what's going on. but they need to be in class getting an education. there are other ways to get that

5:53 am
>> well, certainly i hope he waives extradition you and get him back quicker if i have the evidence. if i don't have enough evidence or i'm waiting for more forensic tests that would actually shore up my case, i kind of hope he fights extradition, gives me another 30 days to 60 days to work on my case. as far as interrogation, i wouldn't want to go to texas -- i would want to go to texas, get a dialogue going and hope he would waive his rights and actually talk, but i doubt that's going to happen. >> we actually don't hear that he is doing that right now. how do you actually get that to happen? desperately everyone wants to find hannah. how do you get him to help find her? help the police get to her? >> well, it's not in his best interest if hannah graham is dead. it's not in his best interest if he raped hannah graham and she
5:54 am
is somehow held captive. it is not in his best interest to help the police. if they can convince him that somehow he would get a lesser penalty or charge when it comes to court, that's about the only kind of tool that you have right now because he's incarcerated. he knows he's caught. he fled. he fled knowing full well that the police wanted to talk to him. so he knows he's a suspect. he knows what he did. he knows where hannah is. but as far as telling authorities, that would only make his case worse unless they make some sort of a deal with him. >> on our show, the police chief joined us. here is what he said he needs from witnesses. >> particularly from that time of hannah's disappearance to the time of it being reported to the police, we're concerned about that large block of time and just what the habits and behaviors of jesse matthew might
5:55 am
have been. let me give you an example. if at 8:00 o'clock on saturday morning, september 13, someone saw jesse matthew when he was pumping gas at a gas station and he was alone, he was in a grocery store buying milk and he was alone, or somewhere else in the city of charlottesville and he was alone, that's important information for us to know because we're trying to shrink that time line so we can again be more efficient about how we go about the search for hannah graham. >> you're get to go see the holes they still need filled, mark. >> well, of course. there is always holes, even when go to a prosecution and somebody successfully prosecuted, there is still holes because the suspect doesn't give up everything. i cannot second guess what the chief and his detectives have done in charlottesville. i think they've done a great job. a lot of people have been slightly critical. why didn't you talk to him at the search warrant? why didn't you talk to him when he came into the station? this is really a delicate dance
5:56 am
because once you actually approach a suspect and you advise him of his rights, if he shuts the door on you, you can never approach him again. so you want to find that opportunity when he is the weakest and the most apt to talk to you and they really haven't gotten to that point yet because he became so eadvicesive, they couldn't -- evasive, they couldn't even find him to present things to him that might want him to talk. >> this case certainly turning as we speak. we might have a breakthrough today. thank you for setting the table for us. >> thank you. >> thank you. we'll be right back with one for the road and something else special ♪ i thought it'd be bigger. ♪
