tv On the Record With Greta Van Susteren FOX News September 30, 2014 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
up. thank you for inviting us into your home. that's our special report fair, balanced, unafraid. greta is on the record right now. this is a fox news alert. it is here, ebola. president obama was briefed just moments ago about a patient inside this dallas hospital testing positive for ebola. now it is the first case of this highly contagious and deadly disease right here in the u.s. and the person who was sick came in contact with those on multiple flights on his way back to the united states. now they are on a mission to track down anyone, i mean anyone who could possibly have the deadly virus. john roberts is live in atlanta with the latest. john? >> reporter: this is what public health officials, greta, expected and feared all at the same time. finally coming to pass. there have been so many false alarms in the last few months, all of them testing negative.
some of them turned out to be malaria, but now ebola is in the united states. what do we know about the patient? he's a liberian who arrived in the u.s. on the 20th. was said to be asymptom attic. it is highly unlikely he came in contact with someone at the point to transmit the infection to them. however, once he got here to the united states and he was staying with relatives in dallas, he began to fall ill on about the 24th. he was so ill that on the 26th he went to texas health presbyterian hospital in the northern part of dallas to seek treatment. two days later he was admitted to the hospital based on his symptoms and the fact that he was traveling from western africa, placed into strict isolation. now here's where things get worrisome, because, greta, he was in contact with a number of people between the 24th when he
fell ill and the 28th when he was allowed into the hospital before he was placed in strict isolation. dr. tom friedman held a lengthy president conference just a while ago at the centers for disease control during which he said because of america's strict protocols for disease containment, infection control and treatment, it's highly unlikely that there will be any kind of an outbreak as a result of this. at least not a widespread one. but he also said it is highly likely that one, maybe more of the people that this person came in contact with will fall ill with the disease. how bad could it get? well, in nigeria, one man managed to infect 19 other people before they got it under control. nigeria has strict infection protocols but not as high as we have here in the united states, greta. >> all right, john, so the window is 24 to 28 days, that's what they are saying the window. who knows if he didn't develop the symptoms a little bit earlier. no one wants to create panic, but what ability to the airports
have to determine whether or not someone has ebola? >> all they do is look for people showing outward signs of it. there are temperature sensors at the departing airports in west africa. but here's one of the great unknowns about ebola. they believe you have to have close contact with somebody who is showing symptoms in order to become infected. but dr. rick sacra just released from the northeastern medical center in omaha, nebraska, was working as an obstetrician in liberia, believed none of his patients had ebola, all of them were asymptomatic and still came down with the disease. there are a lot of knowns but there are a lot of unknowns as well. and that stokes such fear in people. >> and you don't want to set off a panic, but he changed planes at many different airports. every reason for us to exercise extreme caution, not panic but extreme caution. john, thank you. now to the controversy
erupting at the white house. what did president obama know about the isis threat and when? two nights ago president obama throwing his administration's head of intelligence under the bus blaming the intelligence community. and today the white house in damage control mode. is the white house walking back that accusation? the white house chief correspondent ed henry grilling press secretary josh ernest. >> the president got that information from the intelligence community, i would expect. >> i think from a variety of sources, but certainly there were -- >> you are arguing both sides. the president said on "60 minutes," i didn't get a heads-up from the press community. now jay carney did say a year ago, the president said it at a news conference a year and a half ago, which is it? >> what the president was referring to specifically is a comment that director clapper has repeated on a couple of occasions chchlt is that it is very difficult to assess the
will of, in this case, the iraqi security forces to fight for their country. >> ed henry is joining us live from the white house. ed? >> well, good to see you, greta. what's interesting is the headline is, the intelligence community strikes back. as you noted after that "60 minutes" interview, it sounded like the president was blaming james clap attorney intelligence community. they insist that's not the case at the white house, but the question from steve croft was, were you surprised, mr. president, about the rise of i sirks and how fast it was? and he said they, not we, were surprised. and the intelligence community. the bottom line is in "the new york times" piece today, when i say strikes back, the intelligence community said, look, we were warning through anonymous visual warning the president and his aide a year ago, months ago, that the threat was growing and they were too busy with other crises. they didn't want to get dragged back into iraq and ignored the threat. the presno, that's not the case. and james clapper says he and the president are in perfect
sync. if you compare what the president said on "60 minutes" to the sound bite from jay carney almost a year ago from the white house podium, isil is gaining strength. they could launch serious attacks. and he was pointing out the threat in iraq. where did jay carney get that from? clearly the intelligence community briefed the white house and given him various talking points, briefing papers, and that's what they are basing it on. to suggest the community did not give him a heads-up may not stand up. and new republican lindsey graham wants to get a look at the presidential daily brief. the intelligence document the president gets every day. you've been reporting on it, our katherine harris first breaking that, look, she was told over a year ago in that pdb as its known, the president was warned that isis is gaining steam. lindsey graham firing off this letter tonight to the president saying, turn these over just like president bush did after the 9/11, he turned over some of his pdbs to the 9/11 commission to get a better sense of what
the intelligence is. josh said it is highly unlikely he'll turn it over as a highly classified document, but the point is, what the president aware of this or not? but there are signs saying he was. >> thank you. how did president obama miss the rise of isis? even a year ago an official testified before the house of foreign affairs committee warning of isis. so how did president obama miss this? >> the president missed nearly half of his daily intelligence briefings. >> i wonder how many fund-raisers he'd miss. >> it wasn't a surprise if you're paying any attention to what's going on in iraq. >> how does the president miss this? >> you have to ask, is the president in the game as far as his number one priority. his responsibility is the commander and chief. >> his response to isis in the
president's daily brief were well over a year. >> you are not troubled about how the usa is being run, you're not paying attention. and ron johnson is on the foreign relations committee joining us. good evening, sir. as a member of those committees, were you aware of isis before the last three weeks, and if so, when did you become aware of isis? >> let's face it, we heard that same testimony or heard of it back in november 2013. but this administration has been aware for quite some time. i remember secretary kerry before coming in front of our foreign relations committee in september of 2013 debating the use of military force in syria, i asked him the question because we heard reports that the rebels in syria were being infiltrated by al qaeda. and i asked if that was true and he said, oh, no, that's not true, senator. all reports we have is that the opposition is becoming more moderate. so we all know that president
obama, after isis took over fallujah and parts of ramadi, he basically referred to isis as the geb team because he simply wanted to believe his own rhetoric and narrative that al qaeda was on the run, they decimated it and the war on terror was over. >> all right. i'm not going to defend the president calling it a jb, i'm not going to light fallujah getting run over in january or mosul in june, but was he underestimating the remarks in reference to the capability of the iraqi army or was that about the threat of isis? >> you know, i imagine he was probably referring to the stunning retreat of the iraqi security forces, the way they just threw down their arms and changed out of their uniforms right away. as i suppose everybody was surprised by just their total lack of resolve, but even that we shouldn't have been surprised by that because when we pulled out of iraq in 2011, when we bugged out and didn't leave a
stabilizing force, greta, it was the u.s. military that was the glue that held the coalition together. the only way sunni and shia were going to trust each other was by having an american presence there. so we lost all influence of that coalition, basically it was busted up at that point and time. so we shouldn't have been surprised at all that the iraqi military force was totally depleted of the professional military staff that the sunnis provided. >> senator, there's a lot of attention tonight on ebola here in this country. that's grabbing a lot of our attention so our focus has shifted for a few minutes on what's happening with isis. so tell me, why should your constituents in wisconsin be worried about isis tonight? >> well, because by the testimony that grant mcgirk just talked about isis funneling 50
bombers, they are recruiting foreign jihadists with american passports, it would be an easy task for isis to start funneling the suicide bombers into the west, into america. and of course, we saw the first american suicide bomber in syria fly back to florida before he flew back to syria to blow himself up this may. so this is definitely a clear and present danger to america. >> is president obama to be blamed? i hate to use that word, but be blamed for being asleep at the wheel as we see isis grow so dramatically in the last few months to the point where we've got this situation where we are worried about lone wolfs or the expansion in iraq and syria? we have been seeing two journalists get beheaded, is that because president obama was asleep at the wheel and didn't move earlier? >> well, the biggest blunder was not leaving a stabilizing force behind in iraq. just bugging out of iraq, not giving that coalition government the time it needed to develop the trust between the coalition partners. that was the biggest mistake. but no, you have to admit that this administration has been
denying reality. they have not been watching this carefully. they haven't been taking the strong resolute action around the world that we need in order to maintain peace. >> senator, thank you, sir. >> have a great night. and people in the intelligence community are angry, feeling scapegoated. they don't like that the president is throwing them under the bus about isis, one unnamed intelligence official telling the new york times that the white house just didn't pay attention to intelligence reports. and democrat joe trippi is joining us, do you have anything to say about your party? the president is unhappy that he's throwing them under the bus. >> the president was quoting a specific quote that clapper made to "the washington post" in which he talked about they underestimated the north vietnamese, they underestimated the south vietnamese, and he, he used the word, i didn't see the collapse of the iraqi army in
the north. the president was pointing to that and -- >> why didn't the president see? if you look back, i realize what was going on, people were saying it. >> yeah, but if your intelligence reports are telling you that isis is growing in strength but the iraqi army is strong enough to take them on, then what was -- the president is listening to that intelligence. >> is that what they were saying? >> that's what clapper said in his quote to "the washington post." >> there's a call by senator graham for the reports to be released, what the president reads. that would be very helpful. president bush did that in 2004 when he was criticized. why not repeat that? i know they can say it is highly classified, but a lot of that can be redacted. >> a lot of that is about events happening right now. i'm not sure you want isis to know some of that. >> we can see what the president was told in october. >> maybe the intelligence community, that would make sense to me, if the white house did
it, but i don't think they will. >> we can see the briefings from october of last year, for instance, until mid-august, right? to see what the president knew or didn't know about isis. he can make it look like the president was aggressive with his attention on it. >> i think there are members on the intelligence committee or something like that it would be proper, but i don't think they'll make those reports public. >> can't the president do that? >> i wouldn't if i were him. >> why? >> because we're actually -- >> we're not at war, the president says we're not at war. >> well, we are taking military action against them. and it would be better -- >> at war? >> yes, we're at war. >> why won't he say that? >> because i think -- i think one of the things that people miss is, you know, they win every time we call them. they win every time we go out and start to have people running around and really igniting what -- reacting to what they're
doing. that's terror, that's what they want. so i don't think the administration has a deep and abiding interest in fueling that fire. that's what they think they want. >> by saying we're at war? >> when they -- when you jack up the rhetoric in a way that -- >> frankly, i think it is much greater the name, rhetoric on war is a back word, dropping the bombs on them, i think that -- if you're dropping bombs on them, why not say you're at war? >> actions are better than words kind of way to deal with them. >> i don't want know, i just think that for some reason i can't want figure out why he won't say that, but anyway. >> i can't wait to read my e-mail. >> there's that. joe, thank you. and joining us on our political panel, tom rogen, karen and ron forney. >> rule number one when you're president of the united states, don't tick off the intelligence
community. but my guess is the american public isn't interested in the second-guessing. they concluded weeks if not months ago that the president had dropped the ball. that's why his numbers plummeted. i think what most americans if you're not on the far left or right is they want a president who has a plan, who states it clearly and who states it as if he means it. they saw that last week out of the u.n. what they saw sunday was him reverting back to form. yes, joe is right, he read clapper's quote but didn't take responsibility himself. he didn't share the responsibility. most americans, if that isn't obvious what he's doing, is throwing clapper under the bus. it's a credibility problem. i don't think americans expect our president to be a fortune teller. they expect him to be a true teller. and he did not tell the truth on sunday saying this is clapper's thing. >> i totally agree, but credibility makes you real nervous. if you have not lost credibility, you have the president blaming someone. so now we have another problem. that's why i would like to see the briefing to see what he did know. >> except we did not see the pdb
for george bush until long after the fact of 9/11. that's three years, it's the early august 2001 pdb. so the compareson is not exactly correct. >> it was a telegram. >> but the issue here, i think, especially if you read and dissect "the new york times" story, it's not so much that they weren't warned and didn't have the information, it's that they had conflicting priorities. as ed said, they didn't want to go back into iraq. they were worried about the implications in syria. and they were trying to sort of figure out how to deal with their own problems with the iraq government. all of those things took precedence in wet proretrospect, that was a mistake. but that's the mistake that the president is not owning up to here. >> does that matter that he didn't own up to it? >> i think it does matter because it broadens the horizon of his credibility that has been jeopardized in the middle east, you can see that, for example, in israel. but at the same time, the question of intelligence is
critically important. those of us writing about the middle east politics, i wrote a piece last summer talking about the islamic state and had an open source, but a lot of people did better pieces. the intelligence community and the cia has been briefing on this. it is something very much on the radar. >> i guess i have such a problem with the intelligence community. because i don't know what they are saying or not saying, but say sure got it wrong in 2001 with the weapons of massive destruction in iraq. tony blare said he totally believed it was there. it wasn't. the intelligence community has given us some really bum information with big consequences. >> it is an imperfect heart. it is not even a science. >> but it's hard for me to feel that when i see the head guy lying in front of the senate. it doesn't make me feel confident. >> the problem here is that the american public is willing to give their leaders the benefit of the doubt if they don't lie to them. and they were lied to by clapper and the president was not fully straight with them on sunday. i'm not giving the president a pass for sunday, he's reverting to the form and not being honest with the public. >> the intelligence community has one job, which is intelligence. and providing information.
again, if you are sitting in that white house, you have a lot of other things that you are weighing. >> right. and i think president. no matter what decision you make, it's probably not going to be right. so at least be honest with the public. up next, rick santorum is here. plus, chilling information about the beheading attack right here in the u.s. you'll hear what prosecutors said about the events leading up to the gruesome murder. and a big development in the or?

how did they end up where they are in control of so much territory? was that a complete surprise to you? >> well, i think our head of the intelligence community, jim clapper's acknowledged that, i think they underestimated what had been taking place in syria. >> passing the blame, passing the buck, whatever you want to call it. president obama refusing to take responsibility for not trying to stop isis sooner. and former senator rick santorum is joining us. good evening, sir. >> good evening, greta. >> what's going on with the
president and the intelligence community? >> i think you have to look at the intelligence community and one of the reasons our intelligence isn't so good is because we don't have the human assets we used many years ago when this was back in the '70s, and the united states senate under frank church and others basically began a process of saying, we're not going to invest in on the ground human intelligence, that we don't want to get into that messy business, the technology is going to provide us our answers, and now we've seen the result of that. we have lots of great intelligence from signal intelligence but don't have human assets. and when we don't get really accurate intelligence. >> all right. i would go along with you on that except for this. last fall the republican announcements testifying before congress or jay carney from the program or the fact that fallujah was taken over by isis in january. it wasn't that you had a lot of people sneaking around on the ground like the cia to figure out that there was a problem there. i don't know what was in the
president's daily briefing, but this is not one of those situations. this is a situation where we fail to confront the obvious. >> i would agree on this. on this particular piece of information, there was certainly a lot of information out there about, wow, this is a ground that isis was taking over, the places that we're being toppled. and certainly the president should have been aware of that problem. but that didn't fit into the narrative that the president had. and that this problem was over. and we see it continually. the president looks at things through a very different glasses than reality. whether it is obamacare here at home or a whole host of other issues where he goes out and tells these really disconnected from reality ideas about how these programs are doing, or whether it's in foreign policy. the problem with foreign policy is you can't just keep spinning. there is actually an enemy out there that's going to do things that could be damaging to our national security as opposed to obama obamacare where you can keep
working with facts and say it's working, it's really not. there are consequences if you get this other stuff wrong. >> let me turn to another question, ebola. the disturbing news of a case diagnosed in texas. a man who at least we know for four days came in contact with people. i don't know if anybody else has ebola or not, but if you're the president of the united states, what do you do when you find out there's ebola diagnosed in your country? >> well, you have to rely on the scientists. the same thing with the military, you have to rely on your folks, the experts, the military to make this decision. and you look at travel restrictions certainly to be very high on my list. and where people are immigrating from. look, we know where the hot spot is. we know it's a danger and we have to do things to protect our country. we have to put americans first here. obviously, we want to provide health and support for those in east africa, but we have to make sure we are not bringing people into this country who could have been exposed. and if you look at this situation, of this person, you
know, they didn't have any symptoms. all the things that you would have expected someone with ebola to have. this person didn't have. so that makes you think we have to be overly cautious about what people we bring in from that area of the country or that area of the world, excuse me. >> senator, thank you, sir. >> you bet. and there's more disturbing information about the moment after the beheading in oklahoma. a live report from oklahoma is next. know that proper allocation could help increase returns so you can enjoy that second home sooner. know the right financial planning can help you save for college and retirement. know where you stand with pnc total insight. a new investing and banking experience with personalized guidance and online tools. visit a branch, call or go online today.
terror in the heartland. >> a beheading right here in america. >> can you hear this in the background? >> is that him? he's back? >> yeah. >> he killed her and then severed her head. >> the fbi is investigating a claim he recently tried to convert his coworkers to islam. >> he's running around here. >> okay. >> and that's a gunshot. >> he clearly was not planning on stopping. >> and today there's chilling new information about the beheading attack in oklahoma. prosecutors announcing the suspect alton nolen is now charged with first-degree murder in the beheading of his coworker at a food processing plant. the district attorney also releasing disturbing information about the day of the gruesome murder. >> earlier in the day last thursday, the h.r. department received complaints against mr. nolen. he was called in and suspended and escorted to the parking lot. he then left vaughan foods and
retrieved a knife, returned to vaughan foods to get revenge on the people who he felt responsible for getting him suspended and who wronged him. upon entering the building, he came across mrs. huttford and attacked her from behind, ultimately attacking her and beheading h. then he found mrs. johnson, the person who complained on him earlier that day and attacked her. mr. vaughan arrived and shot mr. nolen as mr. nolen was charging at him with a knife in his hand. >> why are the prosecutors only charging nolen with first-degree murder and not terrorism? the district attorney greg mashburn is joining us live from norman, oklahoma. griff? >> reporter: hey, greta. first, we expect alton nolen to come here to be booked and arraigned by video conference.
but as you mentioned, the question everybody is talking about, is why not terrorism charges? he is that the down with me to show me why. the definition of terrorism under oklahoma statute does not fit in his opinion what happened in this case. the actual statute defines terrorism as an act of violence perpetrated to coerce the civilian proplation or government into granting illegal political or economic demands. he believed that's not the case here. and to further that, he says that the feds can still file their own charges. and that's why the lack of charges of terrorism in this case here has not diminished the feds interest into what may or may not be a radicalization on american soil. that's why we traveled to the oklahoma city mosque where alton attended and spoke to a spokesman there, adam soltani. listen. >> this one man does not represent muslims in the state. these individuals who have
radical ideologists are now becoming the representatives of our faith. and i hope that through outrage and building up bridges of understanding we can show people that our faith does not stand for and in fact condemns and upholds all extreme ideologies. >> reporter: greta, back to you. as you pointed out, even if he had filed terrorism charges, we would have arrived at the charge of first-degree murder and the penalty of life in prison. in this case, if you go further, we expect the death penl toy be sought. >> indeed. griff, thank you very much. and tonight news that there is a link between the disappearance of hannah graham and the murder of a virginia tech student raising fears of a serial killer in the area. the latest on the legal investigation from our legal panel, next. and sergeant tahmooressi's lawyer is heading back to court. find out why, coming up.

she was bright, really athletic, intelligence, beautiful, 18-year-old college student is still missing. >> this is every parent's worst nightmare. >> new details about the prime suspect in the case of that missing university of virginia student. >> a giant break in the case. police say the suspect in the graham kidnapping jesse matthews has been forensically linked to the 2009 kidnapping, rape and murder of morgan harrington. >> forensic evidence does tie the morgan harrington disappearance from 2009 as you said to hannah graham's disappearance today. >> we have no idea whatsoever where she is.
>> uva student hannah graham is the fifth young woman in five years to vanish along the route 29 corridor near charlottesvi e charlottesville. so this is the work of a serial killer. joining us is our defense lawyer, ted williams. ted, you have done some investigating near charlottesville, what are you hearing? >> i am hearing this is a huge break for law enforcement in the case, especially in harrington who went missing in 2009. i also, greta, have been by jesse matthews' home. and what i found there was -- one night i was told by a source that same night that hannah graham went missing, that there were two, a white woman that was at the apartment with jesse matthew. however -- >> where are they? >> i'm sure law enforcement may have talked to them already, but i can tell you that the description was not that of hannah graham. it was of someone else. >> all right.
katie, there's another horrible twist to this case in that the other young woman who died a number of years ago, who they have now linked to jesse matthew, that case, that goes back to 2009, but some dna or something found on those remains is snow also linked to a rape in fairfax county in 2005, or a sexual assault, i assumed it was rape. i don't know what else it is, but now forensic is linking in other directions. >> yeah, it's fantastic news for law enforcement. if you consider the fact that the forensic evidence that was recovered from jesse matthew's car and apartment has now linked him to the 2009 homicide of morgan harrington and the 2005 sexual assault, who knows whether or not we'll be able to link him to other abductions or disappearances or homicides that might have occurred in that area. it's a great development for law enforcement. but more importantly, for purposes of hannah, where is she? where is her body?
if i was the defense attorney for mr. matthew's, i was be harping on the fact they don't have the body currently linking mr. matthew to anything that happened to her, other than he was the last person seen with her. >> if i was the defense attorney for jesse matthew, what i would be doing is, they can show that forensic connection, i would be racing in to try to save his life, to try to make some of a deal where he would let them know where hannah or matthew's is to try to save his life. because in virginia they will fry you. >> they will move quickly in virginia. katie, i guess if i was the prosecutor, though, as much as ted may want to work on a deal assuming that the facts are as we suspect, this man may have -- there may be a lot more to investigate about this man. >> yeah, but you know what's really telling about that, and it's true, it may be an uphill battle. he's been charged with abduction with intent to defile. intent is always a circumstantial thing to prove. what do you have going on in
your mind to intend to do something? but let's be frank, consciousness of guilt is what we prosecutors use to rely upon. that guy was found in galveston, texas. what are you doing? you're not going to a beach vacation right after speaking to the police in virginia. the fact that he goes to speak about hannah's disappearance and takes off speaks volumes about his consciousness of guilt. >> that's actually not so unusual, is it. people who are suspected in crimes, they do some unusual things. >> they do certainly some unusual things, but this is one time that i have to agree with katie. when you're looking at consciousness of guilt, the fact that he was found free 1300 miles away in galveston, texas, after that statement hurts him tremendously. >> i would be putting his dna through every single database available from here to southern california. wouldn't you, katie? wouldn't you be doing that as well? >> absolutely. there's a database called code
and i would run it through all of that. there's a reason now that states will swab the defendant based upon the nature of a crime to enter it into a database so they actually have it on file just in case in the future they might be able to run it against that particular defendant. >> all right. well, i'll say he's presumed innocent, but boy, i tell you, it sure looks like an act of constitutional right. >> he's in a hope of trouble. >> a lot of trouble, indeed. a major development in the case of sergeant tahmooressi. and how will this impact the marine's case? the latest is next. why can't we just get in the running car? are you crazy? let's hide behind the chainsaws. smart. yeah. ok. if you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions. it's what you do. this was a good idea. shhhh. be quiet. i'm being quiet. you're breathing on me! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico.

stripped naked and chained to a bed. >> please get me out of here. also tomorrow, a house committee will hold a hearing on the marine's case. the representative iliana ross is joining us. thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much, greta. >> what is the purpose of tomorrow's hearing? what do you hope to achieve? >> i think already we have achieved a lot because as soon as we put out the notice we were going to have this hearing, mexico hurried up and did this evaluation to make sure that this hero suffers from ptsd and no treatment is available in mexico. and already it's had a very positive affect. jill, his mom will be testifying. one of his comrade in arms who served with tahmooressi in afghanistan is going to testify. a veterans group will be there as well. this is a hero, an american hero who served two tours in
afghanistan. he took a wrong turn into the twilight zone. he's really declared that he had registered arms with him. wanted to turn around. and for that he has been in jail in this goula for almost 200 days. it is outrageous, greta, that the u.s. government has not been able to deal one-on-one with the president of mexico and say, hey, take a little interest in this marine's case. outrageous. >> well, i think also, i don't want to get ahead of ourselves in terms of whether he'll get released now that his own psychiatrist says he has ptsd and can't get treatment in mexico, but i don't want to get ahead of myself. the two marines that marched 300 miles to the white house. you have montel williams pounding the pavement. and so many hundreds of thousands of veterans and their family who is have been sending e-mails and posting stuff, i mean, this has been an effort because this is -- he's been sitting there for six months and
you've got a lot of citizens doing everything they can to try to put a spotlight on this. >> and we've got greta, really, greta, hats off to you. you have taken this issue on from the very first day when jill, the mom, thought there's nowhere i can turn. you've taken tahmooressi's case and you've made it a headline case. this is an outrageous act of injustice. >> congresswoman, when i first saw this, i thought, look, we are getting way ahead of ourselves as he's still sitting in prison, but how can you make a wrong turn in mexico with a gun? that seemed absurd to me and i did footwork and thought, really? >> that was a great report. >> well -- go ahead. >> and it is not our only case. i had a constituent, john hammer, olivia hammer, his mom, also was in a similar predicament. and it took a lot of hard work and effort to get her son's case heard. there are a lot of these cases,
mexico's got a deal with the gangs controlling these prisons, and really, this is hurting the reputation of that country. >> they also have the horrible drug trade but that's another show. >> that's a whole other -- we hope to have a good hearing, thank you, greta. thank you. the first case of ebola diagnosed right here in the u.s. a live update, next. know that proper allocation could help increase returns so you can enjoy that second home sooner. know the right financial planning can help you save for college and retirement. know where you stand with pnc total insight. a new investing and banking experience with personalized guidance and online tools. visit a branch, call or go online today. before we craft it into a sandwich. the amazingly tender roasted turkey -- always raised without antibiotics, the zesty cranberry mostarda,

military families are uniquely thankful for many things, the legacy of usaa auto insurance could be one of them. if you're a current or former military member or their family, get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life. this is a fox news alert. we are getting more information on the first case of ebola diagnosed here in the united states. john roberts is joining us again. john? >> hey, greta. a couple big things. here are the two big tasks, one is to make sure the patient is isolated and receiving good treatment. there's a team from the center of disease control there on the ground. the other big task is to identify those he may have been in contact with after he became symptom attic with the systems
of ebola. those on the aircraft flying do not need to be screened. if you do the math, that was ten days ago. the travel here. the average incubation is eight to ten days. if he did pass it on to someone, it's likely we would have heard about it by now, but the big task again is to identify all the people he came in contact with and then all of the people they came in contact with. if you look back at what happened in nigeria, one man, the american liberian, patrick sawer, landed in nigeria. by the time it was over, 19 people had ebola. this is an urgent health crisis, but definitely all hands are on deck in terms of dealing with this. >> john, do we know how old this man is? is he likely to recover from this? >> that's one thing we don't know because because of hipa regulations, we are not hearing a lot of information. at this point we don't know. >> john, thank you.
let's go off the record for a minute. before we go tonight, i just want to give you all a quick thanks. thanks for being loyal viewers. we just completed one year at 7:00 p.m. . "on the record" at 7:00 p.m. has been number one ever since launching at that time. you kept us number one at 10:00 p.m. for 11 1/2 years. i didn't know if you would stick with us when we moved to the newest time slot, but you did. i appreciate it and the entire staff appreciates it. it's been fun to move to the earlier time and work hard to do the best job we can. but let's face it, this is where you all come in, a show is not number one without the viewers. so i give all of you, the viewers, the credit. that's my "off the record" comment tonight. thank you for being with us tonight. see you tomorrow here at 7:00 p.m. eastern. if you can't watch us live, use your dvr. and we have fox news go or foxnewsgo.com. there are so many ways to see
us. there's no excuse. do you think the government is telling the straight story about ebola or are they keeping something back? vote in the greta wire poll. up next, "the o'reilly factor." the to riley factor is on tonight. >> did this message not get to the president? >> why is he still raising money, playing golf, when he's acknowledged -- >> the press corps really bearing down on president obama. why the sudden change? we will tell you. >> it's clear that our security plan was not properly executed. this is unacceptable and i take full responsibility. >> it doesn't get worse for the secret service. now an interloper has said to have broken into the white house itself. did the service try to cover this up? we'll have the latest. it is highly unlikely that i will seek the death penalty in
