3:00 am
the bathroom. gary writes reclining the seat in front of me always uncomfortable. thanks to everyone who responded. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. bye. good morning. it's wednesday, december 10. i'm ainsley earhardt filling in for elisabeth this morgt. a fox news alert, the senate releasing its c.i.a. report but first senator dianne feinstein apologizes for america. >> it shows that the c.i.a.'s actions a decade ago are a stain on our value and on our history. >> and this morning a new threat of home-grown terror. we are live from washington. >> and he can dish it out, but can mr. gruber take it? >> are you stupid? >> i don't think so, no. >> what a great question. jonathan gruber apologizes
3:01 am
but shouldn't the president be saying "i'm sorry"? we're going to tell you all about the capitol grilling. >> overnight protest rage on and protesters turn on each other. [chanting] >> they can't get the message straight. aren't they supposed to be on the same side? we'll ask them. no, we won't. we'll just watch the video. mornings are better with friends. >> this is steve guttenberg, brian's only real friend. you're watching "fox & friends." >> how did your day go on sunday? >> we had a problem. i forgot. steve wrote me yesterday this weekend just two people sitting in massapequa. >> your only friend and you forgot to meet him. >> my only celebrity friend. >> we have ainsley with a fox news alert. >> water boarding, sleep
3:02 am
deprivation and death threats. senate democrats release a scathing reports on c.i.a. interrogation tactics after 9/11 but former c.i.a. agents say the message saved lives. peter doocy is live in washington. peter, is there worry trerts could use this report to -- terrorists could use this report to hurt us? >> social media is being monitored for propaganda about this report. there is a warning that terrorists here in the united states or abroad may use the details in this 6,000-plus page long report. this comes as some in the intel have new and specific concerns for c.i.a. personnel abroad. >> now you have a caseworker working in a very dangerous place in the world who expects that the united states is going to stand with them because we've asked them to do very hard and difficult things
3:03 am
to protect america. do they have to turn around and look back and wonder if the united states is going to be with them? >> the big headlines from the senate report are that the c.i.a. interrogation was more brutal than the agency let on and wasn't subject to proper oversight, so the number of detainees subjected to enhanced techniques was underreported and the white house and congress weren't told if these harsh methods were even working. >> it's really about american values and morals. these values exist regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves. >> the only way our country can put this episode in the past is to come to terms with what happened and commit to ensuring it will never happen again. this is how we as americans make our nation stronger. >> the justice department is saying they are not going to open up a criminal case to prosecute those at the c.i.a. who used or authorized interrogation techniques.
3:04 am
>> the thing is missing from the report is context because it does not remind you that given the fact that 9/11 had just happened it was a ticking time bomb, and the feeling was that if you subjected high-value prisoners to some discomfort or maybe a little pain, you could get and extract some vital information. keep in mind they were planning to kill thousands more at that time. at that time it made perfect sense. >> by the way, i don't even think that we should be on high alert today. every day is high alert. these are the same people that put the planes into the building, blew up the cole, blew up the embassies. you think they need to know we're going to be tough with them if captured in order to become militant or anti-american. for some reason they were born anti-american. we don't know what their problem is but know what their intent is. this right here is the 500-some odd page summary, much shorter than the 6,000
3:05 am
pages. who ever read this thing? you might love this document, you might hate this document, what you should know is not one c.i.a. director is interviewed. you know who was interviewed? a couple of lawyers who represent gitmo detainees. it is interesting to note republicans didn't sign off on it, they say because they realize this was a political document, they wanted no part of it. what is the point? what did peter just end with, saying there is not going to be any prosecutions from this. so what is the point? if you want to have a book that comes out later that has a redaction that somehow is going to benefit us, is this group therapy or something? >> the point is the democrats had to get this out before the republicans took over. look, it's lopsided, no doubt about it. and they sandbag the c.i.a. lieutenant colonel ralph peters says the c.i.a. is the left's new villain. >> back during the vietnam war they called our troops baby killers. can't do that anymore.
3:06 am
the american people love our troops. they need a villain, the c.i.a. becomes the new villain. i say anything, anything done to a terrorist associated with 9/11 or other terrorist attacks, anything gets my approval. >> dr. james mitchell and bruce jesson were the ones who came up with this. these are two former military psychologists. they were paid $80 million to come up with this plan. that plan and operation gave us the tactics for taking down and cross-examining some of the high-value intelligence agents we picked up like khalid sheikh mohammed and horse. >> you mentioned this report cost $40 million. wouldn't you rather see that money go elsewhere like to our veterans? we're talking about terrorists. these aren't innocent amer the same terrorists that killed 3,000 innocent americans on 9/11. >> everything was approved. the president approved the program, attorney general deemed it was legal, they kept going back for
3:07 am
approval. karl rove says this was humane as he details what they did with the water boarding. >> there has to be a doctor present. the water has to be a certain temperature. they have to be elevated so they literally cannot drown, the water cannot get into their lungs. the doctor has to advise the subject that they will not die. you have to tell them, you're not going to die. you're just going to feel like you are drowning and, therefore, it's going to help break your spirit and make you compliant. you can throw people up against a wall but only if the wall is constructed in a special way so that it gives so that the chances of them suffering physical harm from being slammed up against a wall are nonexistent. >> and they could have stopped it by doing this thing called talking and being compliant. we ask you this question to all of you out there: are you comfortable with the enhanced interrogation process and are you comfortable with the fact that the world knows what our tactics were in 2001 through 2005. >> we're going to get
3:08 am
reaction from the daughter of dick cheney, liz cheney. brian will be talking to her coming up. >> there she is coming up very shortly. we've shown you over the last month or so videos of professor jonathan gruber from m.i.t. talking essentially how they tricked us stupid americans. yesterday he was called on the carpet. he was on capitol hill. what is amazing is professor gruber, for such a smart guy on video, he sure didn't know much yesterday. watch. >> are you stupid? >> i don't think so, no. >> so you're a smart man who said some -- the ranking member said some really stupid things? >> the comments i made were really inexcusable. >> they are irresponsible, incredibly disrespectful and did not reflect reality
3:09 am
and they are insulting. >> will you provide copies of your communications including e-mails or any other conversations or discussions you had with state officials or employees related to the affordable care act. >> once again the committee can take it up with -- >> i need a yes or no. i'm not interested in talking to your counsel. when did you realize these comments were inappropriate or inoffensive. >> i honestly don't remember making them. >> you don't remember calling your fellow citizens stupid, that the rest of your fellow citizens don't give a damn about the uninsured? you don't remember that. >> i don't because they were glib and thoughtless, what i made. >> glib and thoughtless, he said it six or seven times caught on tape. my problem is everything he said is true. that makes you wonder what the approach was to him saying this. after all, he had such a major role in writing this. mark teason looks at the bigger picture. >> let's remember barack obama told the same lies as jonathan gruber.
3:10 am
that is really what the issue is here. nobody cares about jonathan gruber. he is now a washed up m.i. t. professor. we care about barack obama, the president of the united states. he said over and over again the individual mandate is not a tax. where's barack obama's apology? i would like to see barack obama say i'm sorry for my glib and inaccurate comments. why doesn't the president of the united states apologize to you. >> gruber didn't act alone. it is called obamacare. >> not gruber care. it is called headlines and heather has them. >> we've got new information overnight. the judge ruled the prosecutors can appeal oscar pistorius's man sliewrt -- slaughter conviction. in october a judge sentenced him to five years behind bars for shooting and killing his girlfriend reeva steenkamp. a judge now says that punishment was shockingly inappropriate and they want
3:11 am
a murder conviction. >> house leaders unveiling a massive $1.1 trillion spending bill to keep the government from shutting down. the government technically runs out of money at midnight tonight. the main spending bill will likely be voted on tomorrow by the house and then it will head to the senate but bad news if it for pot smokers. there is a section in the bill that prohibits washington, d.c. from legalizing marijuana. no need to worry about the protesters clarking with police over eric garner and michael brown. in berkeley, california, it is protester versus protester and things are getting pretty ugly. take a look. that man got knocked out. he was trying to stop people from breaking windows, and that's when another protester smashed him in the face with a hammer. the victim was then taken to the hospital. no word on his condition at this hour. the coast guard and u.s. navy rescue a man off the coast of hawaii nine
3:12 am
days after his search and rescue was called off. ron ingram went missing 12 days ago. crews were shocked to receive another may day call from him yesterday. they were able to pinpoint his location using the u.s. navy destroyer, the u.s.s. paul hamilton. they found him 64 miles off the coast of hawaii. he was tired and dehydrated but they say he will be okay. amazing work from our men and women. glad to bring you that good news. >> how many days after they called off the search? >> initially 12 days went by and then 9 days after they called off the search. they searched 12,000 miles trying to find him and then that may day call came up. >> home in time for the holidays. >> 12 minutes after the hour. want to get our your final examples? go out and protest police brutality. the disgraceful new trick students are pulling.

3:17 am
more now on our top story. controversial c.i.a. report putting u.s. troops on high alert this hour. the report condemns the agency's interrogation tactics after september 11. >> at no time does the c.i.a.'s coercive interrogation techniques lead to the collection of intelligence on an imminent threat that many believed was the justification for the use of these techniques. >> what's behind the timing of this report's release and where do you come up with that conclusion? fox news contributor liz cheney, daughter of former vice president dick cheney, joins us right now. who benefits from this? thanks so much for joining us, liz. >> sure. thanks for having me. america's enemies benefit certainly from it. what senator feinstein said there is absolutely flat wrong. you've got six former directors of the c.i.a. and deputy dreshts of the -- deputy directors of the
3:18 am
c.i.a. have come out in an op-ed this morning and said it is not true. we've uncovered critically important attacks against the united states of america because of this program. it was information out of this program that led us to al qaeda leaders, including osama bin laden, that allowed us to take them off the battle field and that enabled us to go back again and again and again to people like abu zubeydah to get information about al qaeda. over a quarter of the 1700 footnotes in the 9/11 commission report comes from information from detainees. what senator feinstein did yesterday on the floor of the senate was, frankly, a really sad end to what has been a long career in the united states senate. but it was a disgrace. >> it's unbelievable because she does not profile that way. she was someone who took on this administration when she thought they were jeopardizing our security. something switched on her. her own c.i.a. director, or president obama's own c.i.a. director was angry about this, challenged the conclusions. also in this report it says the vice president -- your
3:19 am
dad -- and president bush were kept in the dark on some of these. neither your dad nor president bush used this opportunity to say we didn't know, because they didn't know; right? >> of course. you can go back to 2009, the very first days when president obama said he was going to begin investigating the c.i.a. officers involved in this program, and my dad immediately came out and said stop, that's outrageous. this was an important program. it saved lives and prevented attacks. you bet we knew about it and authorized it. not only that, we would do it all over again if we had to. to see these same patriots now dragged through the ringer again is outrageous. >> here is the president yesterday talking to union ni investigation. >> there were of people who did a lot of things right and worked very hard to keep us safe, but i think any fair-minded person looking at this would say that some terrible mistakes were made in allowing these kinds of practices to take place.
3:20 am
>> any clear-minded person would react to that. maybe if they looked at this report without the c.i.a. directors' opinion in there and without any c.i.a. agents' opinion in there. >> this report is a piece of propaganda. it's false. it is false in many ways laid out clearly in the republican response to it. in doing the report, the years spent on the investigation itself has made us less safe. it has taken people away from the focus of having to keep the nation safe. it is, i said, a disgrace. >> a 524-page summary of the 6,000-page report and i don't know who benefits. liz cheney thanks so much. ten minutes before the bottom of the hour. straight ahead, the trial of the century is coming to the small screen, so who will play the leading role of o.j. simpson? the answer next. and this is outrageous. i pledge allegiance to and wrap myself in the flag of the united states and gebs unamericans and to the republicans for which it

>> thank you for having me. >> i'm reading through the pledge and it says -- this new pledge your former professor has come up with. the anti-american pledge denounces the u.s. as republican controlled, racist, sexist, homophobic and in the name of jesus. he hands out this pledge to your entire class and what was your reaction? >> well, just seeing the pledge, i was appalled. i have to say as soon as he started having us read the pledge or recite the pledge, i couldn't even -- i was seething and i just couldn't believe what was happening, to be honest. >> was everyone in the classroom looking around thinking what in the world? >> so we started the pledge and then the professor insisted that we weren't speaking loud enough bs so he had the class restart the pledge. i looked around and i think, you know, when a professor asks you to do something it's kind of like when your boss at work asks
3:27 am
you to do something. most people were participating. i, however, was not. >> did you speak out? did you argue with the professor, at least let your opinion be known? >> on multiple occasions actually. there were several instances where i disagreed with him and have had much to say against his line of thought. at one point i asked him if his class was going to be at all objective or just his subjective political opinions to which he told me his class would be entirely subjective, that is it is important to impart your own views on your education. >> all right. well, we did hear from the university. let me read this to you and i want to get your reaction. university president steven jordan has initiated an inquiry into the situation and the faculty member has been interviewed. once exams are completed, a sampling of students in the class and students who have withdrawn from the course will be interviewed. m.s.u. denver is looking at the situation from the

perspective of the students' first amendment rights and the faculty member's right to academic freedom. what is your reaction to that, steven? >> well, i spoke with the president's office yesterday. they seem really genuine in their efforts to have a fair inquiry into this. as far as the professor's first amendment rights, i mean, you have your right to tell your opinions, but you can't present your own political opinions as the correct answer or the corrective to other ideas out there. >> thank you so much, steven, for being with us. we appreciate your perspective this morning. i wish you good luck on your exams. coming up, yet another report of a man working near an american airport with ties to terror. he got fired over his connections, but where is he now? it's rare to meet a prince and even more rare to get his phone number. but it did happen. who got the royal digits?

it was an emotional moment of testimony on capitol hill yesterday as a congresswoman from wyoming opens up sharing her personal story about obamacare and its potentiallily harmful impact on americans in a very powerful and personal speech. >> my husband went to sleep and never woke up.
3:46 am
he had a massive heart attack in his sleep at age 65. he chose not to have one of the tests, the last test his doctor told him to have. this happened to coincide with the time that we were told that we were not covered by obamacare. the so-called glibness that has been referenced today have direct consequences for real american people. so get over your damn glibness. >> congresswoman cynthia lummis joins us live from our nation's capital. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> that was so powerful and so personal. why did you decide to share that story? >> i had been sitting in the hearing all morning listening to jonathan gruber repeat a canned so-called apology. he would say i was glib and i was building myself up by
3:47 am
tearing other people down. that's why he claimed he called the american people stupid. but after he said it about a dozen times in a way that was just repeating a memorized statement, it just came across as so insincere. and so i just wanted to convey to him that these things matter to the american people and they matter to me. >> absolutely. i mean, to him maybe, he's an economist. they're just numbers. people are stupid. your husband not a number. he was your husband. and the confusion was -- and you told the story, and your complete speech is on foxnews.com -- you were talking about, you have gruber right there and the people responsible for obamacare in some measure. you said, look, we had obamacare. we bought obamacare. we signed up for obamacare, but when we called obamacare to get treatment for my husband, they said you don't have obamacare.
3:48 am
you were just -- i would imagine you were sick of the excuses. >> well, we had been told we were signed up. we got the message, congratulations, you're enrolled in obamacare. then they said no, you're not. later they said yes you are. and then when my husband filed his claims for these tests, they denied them and said you're not signed up for obamacare. all the confusion coincided with the time he was having these tests. he was an intensely private person, so i don't know whether he just got discouraged about the denial of the claims and just decided enough of this, no more tests, but it did coincide at that time. >> in the back of your mind do you think maybe he was thinking, we've been told a million times we don't have obamacare, i need another test. maybe we can't afford it. maybe i'm not going to have it because we don't have it. did that go through your

mind somewhere? >> we could afford to pay for it ourselves. so that's not really the issue. the issue here is it doesn't take much to discourage some people, particularly men, from going to the doctor and getting all the tests that are recommended. he had had several tests that turned out negative but the doctor recommended one more, and it was the kind of test that would reveal an artery that is clogged on the backside of your heart that's very difficult to see with a chest x-ray. it's unfortunate and i'm not saying that he died because of obamacare. that's a gross overstatement. but i am saying that for some men in particular, it doesn't take a lot to discourage them from having the tests that doctors recommend. >> absolutely. congresswoman cynthia lummis who told gruber yesterday get over your
3:50 am
damned glibness, thank you for joining us today. i'm sorry for your loss. >> thank you very much. >> ten minutes before the top of the hour. coming up, nbc's brian williams asked former c.i.a. director michael hayden to compare his in about a second. but can tony schumacher handle an interview with brian, flat out? find out next what makes thermacare different? two words: it heals. how? with heat. unlike creams and rubs that mask the pain, thermacare has patented heat cells that penetrate deep
3:51 am
to increase circulation and accelerate healing. let's review: heat, plus relief, plus healing, equals thermacare. the proof that it heals is you.
3:52 am
i was thinking about htaking this speed test from comcast business. oh yeah? if they can't give us faster internet or save us money, they'll give us 150 bucks. sounds like a win win. guys! faster internet? i have never been on the internet and i am doing pretty well. does he even work here? don't listen to the naysayer. take the comcast business speed test. get faster speeds or more savings, or we'll give you $150. comcast business. built for business.
3:53 am
on thinto an entire tribe's studentseducation. to turn their education but only five percent of indians on the reservation can afford to go to college.
3:54 am
our next guest lived life in the fast lane. watch. the eight-time national hot rod association champion, tony schumacher is about to take on the toughest challenge yet, hanging out with me. yes, an interview with me. here we are, tony, thank you so much for bringing your car down here. you got here so quick. this thing can go four football fields in five seconds? >> 335 miles an hour in three seconds. there is nothing in the world that accelerates faster than this car. >> you've done this your whole life? >> most of my whole life. 15 years for the u.s. army. it's a nasty car. 10,000 horsepower.
3:55 am
body basically just wraps around this thing. a cockpit. a canopy to keep me safe like a fighter pilot. like these apache pilots that fly fort u.s. army and it does what it's supposed to do. keeps me safe. all aluminum that wraps around the car. carbon fiber kevlar. no tread on the front end. 2000 wing net that produce 10,000 pounds of down force. the christmas tree, which allows the driver to know when we're allowed to leave the starting line. when it flashes, we'll hit the combat pedal and go from zero to 100 miles per hour in eighth tenths of one second. >> i can hear the adrenaline flow through you. you have an important message. we see the army on the side of the car. you've done just about everything training with the army and you also talk to kids about it. >> we do. 24 races a year, we do the yes, sir program. we bring out every kid, say we're in new jersey, we'll invite kids from high school, college, vocational school, any school that has an auto shop. we'll bring them out.
3:56 am
see, 3, 4,000 kids a race and talk to them about choosing a career. then the tv production, the people that make the food, that run the race, make the race, all these people. we inspire the kids to choose what you do. find someone and ask more questions. >> this could be a career. we had a colonel on that said very few christie qualified not even to go into the military. you tell them this could be attractive? >> it is. we ask them to select it. go into the army, do an interview. find out if you're even eligible. three out of ten kids can get in the army. what are we doing wrong with the rest? >> they picked the right guy to represent them. thanks so much. i'll try and squeeze to that that cockpit. steve, tell me what's next for the next two hours. >> thanks. coming up, a shocking inside look at the minds of those looting protesters.
3:57 am
>> in terms of looting and terms of other things, i have no issue with what they did. >> really? the looting? >> what other way to take it to the streets instead of taking them to small businesses and people who work in the community let you know, we're not playing games. ng. >> what? aren't those business better things than the pain, stiffness, and joint damage of moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. before you and your rheumatologist decide on a biologic, ask if xeljanz is right for you. xeljanz (tofacitinib) is a small pill, not an injection or infusion, for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well. xeljanz can relieve ra symptoms, and help stop further joint damage. xeljanz can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers have happened in patients taking xeljanz. don't start xeljanz if you have any infection, unless ok with your doctor. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened.
3:58 am
your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz and routinely check certain liver tests. tell your doctor if you have been to a region where fungal infections are common, and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take. one pill, twice daily, xeljanz can reduce ra pain and help stop further joint damage, even without methotrexate. ask about xeljanz. even without methotrexate. that it's given me time toabout reflect on some of life'seen biggest questions. like, if you could save hundreds on car insurance by making one simple call, why wouldn't you make that call? see, the only thing i can think of is that you can't get any... bars. ah, that's better.
3:59 am
it's a beautiful view. i wonder if i can see mt. rushmore from here. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.
4:00 am
good morning. it's wednesday, december 10. aim ainsley earhart filling in for elisabeth this morning. the senate releasing its c.i.a. interrogation report, but first senator diane feinstein apologizes for america. >> it shows that the c.i.a.'s actions a decade ago are a stain on our value and on our history. >> well, now when they release that report, it's sparking new fears of terrorist attacks right here at home. so how is the mainstream media covering the controversial c.i.a. report? you can sum it up all with one outrageous question asked on nbc news. we'll share it. >> we will. and why are protesters angry about race relations in the united states? looting small businesses. john stossel asked them to
4:01 am
explain. >> small business was innocent. >> they're innocent. so was michael brown. >> okay. that's not all they told mr. stossel. you'll find out more because mornings are better with you. thank you for joining us. >> this is sarah he have beens and you're watching -- evans and you're watching "fox & friends." >> coming up shortly, we're going to find out some things about brian kilmeade's family. you've had experts digging into your genealogy. >> i got a couple of clues. i have never seen my mom more excited. >> really? >> i just told her it's coming up. i know no details about it. but my whole extended family cannot wait. >> yvette came here, she did your family and mine. so you're next. it's my heritage.com if you want to find out about it. we'll tell but that later in the show. she did go into times square and surprised some people out there. just to tell them what they didn't know about their
4:02 am
families. >> that's coming up this hour. thank you for joining us. in the meantime, we start with a fox news alert. well, it is one sided. it's from the democrats in the senate and it is about the c.i.a. and it's essentially bags the c.i.a. that came out yesterday. now we're learning from the f.b.i. that they have issued a bulletin to local, state and federal authorities, be on the lookout. this thing might have angered some lone wolves out there. there could be trouble now that the democrats have released this report. >> that's why senator feinstein has to sleep at night because she felt it absolutely had to come out. not only to the intel committee, not only to the entire senate, not only to the u.s., but the entire world because according to the vice president of the united states, we're such a great country, we can admit our mistakes. but a loft people don't think the word mistake belongs in describing what the c.i.a. did after 9-11. >> the $40 million report, 6,000 pages. brian, i walked upstairs this mornings i heard the copier
4:03 am
going. brian is printing out the summary which is 500 some odd pages? >> this is 399. i had to come down. 399. >> these are some of the key findings in the senate report. they say the interrogations were more brutal than we knew about. they say the program not subject to proper oversight, the number of detainees underreported. also the white house and congress not told about the tactics. we had liz cheney on, brian did, and liz cheney said look, my dad, former vice president, knew all about t. so did the vice president and said they would do it again. >> if you listen to diane feinstein and president obama, we're the bad guys. take a listen. >> it shows that the c.i.a.'s actions a decade ago are a stain on our value and on our history. the release of this 500-page summary cannot remove that stain, but it can and does say
4:04 am
to our people and the world that america is big enough to admit when it's wrong. >> i recognize that there is controversy in terms of some of the details. but what's not controversial is the fact that we did some things that violated who we are as a people. >> it's illogical to think that you could be with high value detainees who plotted and planned to do the embassy bombings and 9-11 and had other plans and think these intense interrogations didn't yield results. but that's exactly what the 6,000 pages and the 524-page summary reveals. that is you have to suspend this belief, if i can borrow a catch phrase. here is liz cheney. >> what senator feinstein did yesterday on the floor of the senate was frankly a really sad end to what has been a long career in the united states senate. but it was a disgrace. you can go back to 2009, very first days when president obama
4:05 am
said he was going to begin investigating the c.i.a. officers involved in this program. my dad immediately came out and said stop. that's outrageous. this was an important program. it saved lives and prevented attacks. you bet we knew about it. you bet we authorized it. and not only that, but we would do it all over again if we had to. and to see these same patriots now dragged through the ringer again is outrageous. >> by the way, "wall street journal" today for the other side of the story, they talk about how khalid shaikh mohammed, and others, it talks about the chain of events which flies in the face of the facts they say are contained there. >> the "new york times" is celebrating the fact that they have sandbagged the c.i.a. all of this is about the senate report. when was the last time you saw that much ink dedicated to something like that? clearly it is political. it came out from the democrats. they spent $40 million about it. if you were watching the mainstream media last night,
4:06 am
nbc's brian williams asked former director of the c.i.a., michael hayden, this loaded question, but hayden's answer is sensational. listen. >> what if you, god forbid, members of your family had to undergo some of the treatments we are reading about in this report? can you personalize it in that way? >> i can. and clearly, look, brian, we're people who like you and all your viewers, we have a soul and a conscience, too. we knew as bad as these people were, we were doing this to fellow human beings. don't ever forget that. you ask me about my family members. i actually think, brian, that my concern or my outrage, if that were ever done to any of my family members, would be somewhat muted if my family members had just killed 3,000 of my citizens. >> exactly. ask yourself, the c.i.a. and the experts, we're not e pes on
4:07 am
interrogations. in order to stop the next plane from hitting the next building which might have your family member, we have to use enhanced interrogation practices. not because they like torturing people or putting people through stress positions, but because they needed the maximum amount of intelligence as quickly as possible. if you could have your life saved, your family members saved by doing that, would you green light the c.i.a.? if the answer is yes, then throw out that report. >> just remember, back then the feeling -- we know now they were plotting other attacks. they wanted -- right after 9-11, they wanted to kill thousands more. so it was the ticking thyme bomb thing. you can't go all jack bower on somebody and shoot them in the leg, tell me the answer, boom, boom, boom. that's not real life. but they went to the president. he authorized it. they went to the attorney general, they went to the department of justice. it was all ok'd. and the historic context of how we were feeling as a nation waiting for the other shoe to drop is completely left out. >> i just wish everyone should fully realize that we're not out of the woods yet, that these
4:08 am
people are even more sophisticated, more advanced and they're even greater numbers now than they were 14 years ago. >> now they're ready to retaliate after this report was released. >> they were ready to retaliate from the day they were born. it other news, there have been more protests overnight in berkeley and all across the country, ferguson. they're continuing to happen because of the garner and brown decisions. john stossel went to the streets to see if new yorkers approve of ferguson and the garner protests and they all say it's okay to loot those businesses. take a listen. >> what do you think of the protests? >> we are allowed to protest. that's our country. >> most whites said the protests were a good thing and some were fine with blocking traffic. >> where else are they going to make the points? the sidewalks are narrow here. how can you have 1,000 people making a point if they can't -- >> there is room on the sidewalk. they're blocking the bridge to get attention. >> of course they are. is that bad? >> that's okay, blocking
4:09 am
traffic? >> why not? >> most blacks were fine with blocked bridges. >> i don't care. i'm sorry, people are being killed by people who are supposed to protect and serve. >> one, 21 people, supported the violence. >> in terms of looting and terms of all those things, i have no issue with what they did. >> really? the looting? >> what other thing to take it to the streets and to the people who work in the community to let them know, this is what we mean. >> the small business is innocent. >> so was michael brown. >> what do those have to do with each other? >> that's why they're protesting, because they feel like michael brown was innocent. so they're going to go out -- >> and destroy somebody's business. >> doesn't make any sense. these are small family businesses in their own community and they're looting and stealing from them. >> go to our facebook page, or tweet us or e-mail us. what do you think about those comments? keep in mind, majority of them sound like protests okay.
4:10 am
blocking bridges? some okay. but the looting is okay? i think it's a little over the line. don't you? >> okay. 9 minutes after the hour. heather nauert is poised to tell us what else is happening. >> i got some news starting from overseas. a judge ruling that prosecutors can appeal oscar pistorius' manslaughter conviction. in october the former olympic star was sentenced to five years behind bars for shooting and killing his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp. prosecutors have said his punishment was, quote, shockingly inappropriate and they want a murder conviction. no need to worry about the protesters clashing with police over eric beganner and michael brown decisions. in berkeley, california, if protester versus protester and things get pretty ugly. you could see there, that man was knocked in the face. he was knocked out. he was trying to stop people from breaking windows and that's
4:11 am
when another protester smashed him in the face with a hammer. the victim was taken to the hospital. no word on his condition at this hour. new fallout in the wake of rolling stone's story about sexual assaults or alleged sexual assault at the university of virginia. the magazine's deputy managing editor, sean wood, who worked with the writer on that story, reportedly tried to resign over that scandal, but the rolling stone founder rejected that offer. the magazine denies the resignation family ever happened. sources say rolling stone is planning to go back to uva to sort through the errors of the story to tell readers what actually happened and probably an attempt to avoid a lawsuit. airplane etiquette under the microscope at the height of holiday travel season. three planes diverted in recent months because passengers fighting over leg room. now there is a new survey that reveals the most annoying type

of flyers coming in third, the aromatic passenger. the stinky guy or sinky gal. the inattentive parent who let their children roam free. coming in first, the rear seat kicker. sounds like number one and two apply to families with children. you got to keep those kids at bay. >> i had number one and two this weekend on a flight. i had a little kid behind me kicking the seat the whole time while the mom was telling him -- >> it's hard. >> we try to take off their shoes and don't let them do that. but sometimes little kids do it. you do your best. >> how we get around. thank you. all right. dozen minutes after the top of the hour on this wednesday. when democrats put together their report blasting the c.i.a., they didn't talk to anybody at the c.i.a. former c.i.a. agent, gary burnson, says they couldn't have been more wrong. he explains why their techniques worked when we come back. some high school students are learning more about than just the birds and the bees. they're talking about planned parenthood is coming in to teach them to choose a different

4:16 am
fox news alert. the c.i.a. coming under increased fire this morning
4:17 am
after controversial report from senate democrats only its use of enhanced interrogation techniques. >> those reports based only on c.i.a. e-mails and transcripts, painted those techniques as practically worthless, even though the committee never bothered interviewing anyone involved in the program. >> the use of coercive technique methods regularly resulted in fabricated information. sometimes the c.i.a. actually knew detainees were lying. other times the c.i.a. acted on false information, diverting resources and leading officers or contractors to falsely believe they were acquiring unique or actionable intelligence. >> is she right? let's talk to former senior c.i.a. operations officer, gary burnson. good morning. >> good morning. >> what has diane feinstein and the democrats, what have they done to the c.i.a.? >> what they've just done, this
4:18 am
is the single greatest hit job on the c.i.a. since the publication by philip agee of inside the company in the 1960s and he was work for the cubans. >> was it ineffective as senator feinstein is saying? were these tactics, were they ineffective? >> i disagree completely with the findings with senator feinstein. this allowed the c.i.a. to take out the second tier of al-qaeda because you have to remember, after 9-11, bin laden and fellow herery went underground and the second tier were the individuals attempt to go plan and execute catastrophic attacks and the united states suffered no follow on catastrophic attack because of this program. >> sure. when you look at the report, there is no context. remember back then, we had already lost 3,000 americans. we thought that there was going to be another wave and in fact, there is evidence that they were planning lots more attacks on the united states. we were just trying to do something. the president directed the c.i.a., go out there and stop something from happening and that's what they did.
4:19 am
>> steve, in 2001, when we invaded afghanistan, the first thing we found is captured azawi and he had plans for an attack in singapore, 20,000 pounds of explosives against many embassies. that was the following one. they had lots of things entrail. and this was the first line for to us know they had lots of planned attacks on the shelf and they had to be stopped. >> going forward, we've heard that by releasing this report, it's going to put american lives at risk. you were a guy on the ground working for the c.i.a. what does this mean for other agents that are there on the ground now? >> what this is is an information operations victory. al-qaeda, the nusra front, isis will use this document, cut it up. they'll be sending it out. this will be the single greatest recruitment document for isis and jihaddist forces in the last 15 years. >> and the democrats released it for political reasons?
4:20 am
>> they did. it's a political document. there were no republicans involved in this. no republican senators, none of their staff. they walked away. they could see what this was. every page, paragraph, sentence, and every word and comma were a carefully orchestrated attack on c.i.a. i was stunned reading it last night. i did tv yesterday and trying to be careful in my commentary. but after i read it, i was horrified. >> i think we're all stunned. gary, damning words, we thank you for joining us. >> thank you. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. president obama might have been telling the truth when he said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. now a new report says good luck getting an appointment with your doctor. and they picked out strangers in the middle of new york city and they gave them an amazing lesson about their family history. so what did they find lurking in brian's past? >> oh, no. >> those scary details when we come back fact.

time for news by the numbers. first, $1.1 trillion. that's the amount of massive spending bill up for a vote tomorrow in the house. the bill expected to keep the government from shutting down. nice to know what's in it. $460 billion. that's how much was spent on medicaid last year. but there is still tons of issues. more than half of medicaid doctors could not offer appointments to enrollees and wait times for those who could get an appointment ranged from two weeks to two months. that sounds familiar. finally, 46 million. that's how many americans have been enrolled in the food stamp program for 36 months in a row. it's the first time in u.s. history that has happened.

christmas is a perfect time to spend time with your family and to learn about your roots and that's why my heritage.com took to the streets of new york city to surprise people with their family stories. wait until you see their faces when they find out. >> looking for my grandparents. >> we'll see what happens. >> oh, my god. >> i never met my father. >> like right here. i've never gotten really this far. >> that's special. here to tell us thousand all works is yvette, the spokesperson for myheritage.com and best selling author. nice to see you. >> thank you. >> you put a tablet on the streets of new york city, people typed in a few data points and that goes to show you how easy it is to use. >> it truly is. we've had so much fun diving into your family history the

past few months. it only made sense we would come back and call it instant discoveries. as you saw, it really is that simple. you go on to my heritage.com, plug in very little information, parents, grandparents, date of birth and immediately you can see family trees, access to family and friends. >> more than u.s. records? it's world records around the country? >> it is world records, depending on the country. also tombstones. as i mentioned, census documents from all overt world and so easy. >> a couple of visits ago you showed the doocys were land barons in ireland. we owned about four acre. >> wow. unrelated to ainsley. but you did ainsley's background? >> we linked you to a family tree with 11,000 members and helped rewrite your history, proving your family did not come through ellis island. but now we're anxious to find
4:27 am
out some secrets about you, brian. >> i am a real blond. >> you are a real blond. we confirmed that and also confirmed that there is a really lovely love story in your family, brian. >> okay. >> let me tell what you we found. your great grandparents, john and mary were born in ireland in the 1800s. they came to the u.s. and settled here in new york. john was very handy. avenues dock worker, but passed away. and then mary to pay the bills and also support her family, opened up a boarding house. one of the tenants was james kilmeade. he was 20 years old. he had come from ireland on a ship called the america. he fell in love with your grandmother, margaret, as they were living in the boarding house. your grandmother's desire to open the boarding house and support her family led -- >> what year was that roughly? >> this was in 1930. >> wow. >> we had the census document. >> we have a picture of the actual boarding house. that was one of the data points that was available.
4:28 am
>> that's the america that james came over from. >> you found what the ship looks like? >> that's the america, yes. and that is the census document showing your grandmother, mary, and who lived in the boarding house at the time. >> margaret. sorry. >> she was 20. and james was 23. they met and fell in love in the boarding house. >> they lived together before they got married, brian. >> we don't know that for sure. >> separate rooms, separate rooms. >> that's right. because mary was overseeing everything. >> that's fantastic. no evidence that they were two of george washington's secret six, though, right? >> no. they were not. they were not. but we did learn that one of your relatives was a pall bearer for george washington. >> right. >> we also found for you that you have relatives back in ireland. the fact you always look so dapper and suited up, your great
4:29 am
grandfather was a tailor. >> on my father's side. >> on my mother's side? >> i'm sorry. yes. your great grandfather. >> and my grandfather was an optometrist you found out? >> that's correct. >> you seem to know a lot about your family. >> did you call your mom? is she watching? >> yeah. she watches every day because she likes steve. yeah. i also know that you were able to find out that not only did my grandfather, how many hours he worked as well. >> that's right. he worked 52 hour weeks, clocking in as an optometrist. clearly you have a history of being quite dapperly dressed and work hard. >> wow. >> for generations, the kilmeades. >> and has your family always been a long island family when they moved here? >> yes. they've been long island and they owned a long line of bars. >> i believe the rooming house on saint nicholas avenuement you went up and in northern avenue. >> how christmassy. >> there you go.

4:45 am
the two minute video cost taxpayers $30,000 to make. brian? >> you never met a mic did he not like until this week. jonathan gruber, the obamacare architect, who called american voters, yeah, you, stupid, took a much different tone during his testimony on capitol hill. dr. keith ablow noticed and is here to analyze the tape. dr. keith, first off, the man that you saw overall, overall broad stroke before we get specific? >> the overall broad stroke is look at all of this through this lens. think of somebody who feels he owes no duty of the truth to the general public, who is very comfortable lying. if you use that lens, then you'll understand why he can say all manner of things, some of which sound prepost trucks but doesn't feel he owes any reality to you or to me or the american public. >> i watched about seven speeches of his online. they're all available. when he was invited to go into capitol hill to explain himself
4:46 am
to the oversight committee of the house, he knew he had to take a conciliatory tone. listen. >> i sincerely apologize for conjecturing and for doing such in such a disparaging fashion. it's never appropriate to make one's self seem more important or smarter by demeaning others. i knew better. i know better. i'm embarrassed and i'm sorry. >> do you believe him? >> not for a heartbeat. not at all. here is the thing, when someone says i sincerely apologize, i always wonder, are you being sincere? secondly, this -- >> like saying trust me. >> this is not about him intellectually saying i was portraying myself as this guru and geneious and i'm sorry, i'm really a humble guy. i should have known better. no, it's about your willingness to lie to the american public. you wrote a document steeped in lies and falsehoods in order to pass legislation you wanted to despite the facts. that's the truth and he won't
4:47 am
admit it when he's in front of congress. he won't say, look, this is what i did. i wrote a document in code which only certain people could understand in order to put one over on the american people. not that you're an arrogant guy. we knew that. it's that you're a liar. >> when he was at the university of pennsylvania, he said we use a lack of transparency to their advantage. he was asked about that transparency yesterday. here is what he said. >> very clear i do not think it was passed in a nontransparent fashion. reasonable people can disagree with the merits of these policies, but it is completely clear that these issues were debated thoroughly during the drafting and passage of it. >> in reality, he was not being -- he was not being transparent about the reality of the program in order to get it passed. >> here is the transparent version, the king has no clothes. this man who claims, by the way, that he doesn't even remember, doesn't even remember making these statements, also he says, look, i don't know. these were like excited
4:48 am
utterances. no, they weren't. this was a window on the truth about you. now you're lying again. and now to a legislative body, you're lying again. why are you so comfortable when you go public telling people lies? why? 'cause you're intellectually arrogant, because you think you know better than the rest of us, 'cause you love the nanny state and you want people to have no autonomy. >> congressman gowdy asked him that, to explain himself and conveniently doesn't remember. listen. >> when did you realize that these comments are indefensible and inappropriate? >> i honestly didn't remember making them. >> you didn't remember calling your fellow citizens stupid and you didn't remember saying that you're the only person who cares about the uninsured and that the rest of your fellow citizens don't give a damn about the uninsured? you don't remember saying that? >> i don't, 'cause they were really glib and thoughtless comments that i made. >> okay. >> they weren't thoughtless. >> if with one or another assessment. either you're a liar and lying
4:49 am
now to the congressman, or we need an mri, a cat scan, all kinds of testing because people don't forget these things. these aren't excited utterances -- >> it was either by mistake or the wrong name. >> right. and so the point is you just lied again. you just did it again. let's look at your whole career academically and public life and find other lies because we know you, you're a liar. >> people don't give $400,000 to people that don't know anything and say excited utterance. and we're stuck with this plan. coming up straight ahead, 11 minutes before the top of the hour. indiana state senator and reserve navy officer jim banks is being called to duty in afghanistan. so who will replace him while he's gone? how about his better half? they both join us next introducing the new philips norelco shaver series 9000

4:54 am
attendance because you're currently deployed, what was going through your mind on how to fill your slot for the people of indiana? >> well, good morning. great to be with you again. of course, when i found out about my deployment, first and foremost i knew my district deserved to be represented. so i started to talk to a number of people and there was only one obvious answer of who would be best to represent our strict and that was my wife, amanda, who i'm proud was elected last week to fill my place. >> that's such good news. amanda, you're a stay at home mom, you got three kids, a one-year-old, three-year-old, five-year-old. you're probably thinking, wait a minute. i don't have any experience. i can't do this. tell me about the process in talking yourself into thinking okay. maybe i can take over for my husband 'til he gets home. >> well, i thought about our girls first. as you said, and how would you
4:55 am
make -- how would i make this work? then i thought about my experience in education in public policy, and when i went to work with focus on the family and i worked for four years there. i had some great experience at the red cross in communications and public relations following that. so i knew that i had much to draw on, not to mention the experience of bag senator's wife for four years and traveling around the district, getting to know the people and the issues here and also having a bit of experience visiting him at the state house and knowing my way around there. i knew i had some -- a leg up, really, that i would have coming into this opportunity. but i definitely had to think about how i would make it work with the girls and putting them first. >> absolutely. for the people of the great state of indiana, they elected your husband for his intellect and his point of view and
4:56 am
obviously you also have a similar point of view as well. your job.oing forward, she's from afghanistan, what sort of device do you have for your wife on doing your job while you're over on deployment? >> well, i'm not sure how to answer that question. my dear wife will do a great job without my advice and after being married for ten years, i'm always careful about giving advice to my wife. but i'm very proud of her. i know she will represent the district well. she knows the issues. she knows the key leaders in the district and without giving too much advice, i already know that she will do a great job in representing the hoosiers from the great part of the state that i'm honored to represent. >> not only is he a good politician, he's a great husband! jim banks and amanda banks

good morning. it is wednesday, december 10. i'm ainsley earhart filling in for elisabeth. the senate releasing its c.i.a. interrogation report. first diane feinstein apologizes for america. >> it shows that the c.i.a.'s actions a decade ago are a stain on our value and on our history. >> well, now that report is sparking new fears of a terrorist attack, this time right here at home. meanwhile, he can dish it out, but can he take it? >> are you stupid? >> i don't think so, no. >> jonathan gruber, who called americans stupid, apologizes, said he was glib. but should the president be the
5:01 am
one who is saying i'm sorry? then, explain this one, ainsley leads into my shot. a plane takes off with 111 passengers and lands with 112. >> they picked somebody up in the sky. >> must have been superman. what happened this flight that no one saw coming. how about that for a riddle? mornings are better with friends >> this is beth stern. you're watching "fox & friends". ♪ >> you know what? we're going to need a lint brush when we go and sit on the couch in the green room. one of the things that people who have pets who live with them at their houses is they love to buy them gifts for the holidays and christmas time and we've got great gifts for pets coming up this hour. >> don't you look forward -- i
5:02 am
look forward to going to south carolina to see the dogs. i love you, mom and dad, too, but i want to seat dog. >> mom how are you doing? did you see the dogs around? i'm giving awe heads up, we do not want the dogs to see the presents. so put the dogs out during the segment at home. >> in the real news this morning, let me tell but this story. waterboarding, death threats, senate democrats releasing a scathing report on secret tactics after 9-11. former members of the agency say the methods did save lives. peter tuesdayy is live at the white house. are there worries now that terrorists could use this report to hurt americans? >> reporter: right now senior administration officials have their eyes on social media. they're on the lookout for any propaganda that may be inspired by the interrogation techniques that fill the 6,000-plus pages of this senate report. there is also an f.b.i.-dhs
5:03 am
joint bulletin warning of possible new attacks in the states and also abroad. now some members of the intel community have an entirely different set of concerns for c.i.a. personnel. >> now you have this growing problem and now you have a case officer who is working in a very dangerous place in the world who expects that the united states is going to stand with them because we've asked them to do very hard and difficult things to protect america. do they have to turn around and look back and wonder if the united states is going to be with them? >> reporter: the big headline from the senate report are that the c.i.a. interrogation was more brutal than the agency let on and not subject to proper oversight. so the number of detainees subjected to enhanced techniques was underreported and the white house and congress were not told if these harsh methods were even working. >> it shows that the c.i.a.'s actions a decade ago are a stain
5:04 am
on our value and on our history. america is big enough to admit when it's wrong. >> reporter: two more big points. first, the c.i.a. insists these interrogation methods worked and ultimately saved lives. second, the justice department says they will not reopen a criminal investigation into -- rather based on this report's findings. back to you in new york. >> thank you very much. >> this is like a public psychological blood letting, because it's up to the chairman of the senate intelligence committee, the outgoing one, former governor feinstein, to come out and say, this is everything we did wrong. even though i was in the gang of eight and briefed regularly by c.i.a. directors and agents, everything about this is wrong, so we got to bring it out. after all t cost $40 million. it's 6,000 pages. we'll jam it down to 524, at which time we'll come to one overriding conclusion, that is the enhanced interrogation practices which detractors
5:05 am
called torture never worked. they say seven of the 39 detainees who were subjected to this produced no intelligence. did you ask anybody that was in the room that had to follow those leads? the answer to that is no. >> here is the thing, the reason it's released is because it's political. the democrats are leaving control -- the keys to the senate in the hands of the republicans soon so they had to get it out. >> and i think of the gruber -- what happened with gruber yesterday, being grilled by these senators. >> on the same day. in the "wall street journal" today, three form directors of the c.i.a. say -- you should go online and read it -- say that the senate report is wrong. it is simply not true. we've also got the minority report by the republicans. they say it's wrongful meanwhile, the president, the head of the democrat party, says look, we are better people than people who waterboard other humans and this. >> the senate report shows we
5:06 am
engaged in some brutal activity after 9-11 and this is an accounting of some of the problems that the c.i.a. program engaged in. i recognize that there is controversies in terms of some of the details, but what's not controversial is the fact that we did some things that violated who we are as a people. there were a lot of people who did a lot of things right and worked very hard to keep us safe. but i think that any fair-minded person looking at this would say that some terrible mistakes were made in allowing these kinds of practices to take place. >> yeah. those people did work hard to keep americans safe and shouldn't we keep them safe by releasing this report, there are talks that americans on the ground could be in trouble, could be at risk because of this. we asked gary burn stein, a former c.i.a. operative about
5:07 am
that very thing. listen to this. >> what they've just done, this is the single greatest hit job on the c.i.a. sips the publication by philip agee of inside the company in the 1960s and he was working for the cubans. this allowed the c.i.a. to take out the second tier of al-qaeda because you have to remember, after 9-11, bin laden and zawahiri went underground and the second tier were attempt to go execute catastrophic attacks and the united states suffered no follow-up catastrophic attacks because of this program. isis will use this program, cut it up. they'll be sending it out. this will be the single greatest recruitment document for isis and jihaddist forces in the last 15 years. >> not that they need it. these are islamic extremists. i didn't know we paid $80 million to former military psychologists to devise this list of tactics. that's fine of the that's not compromising anything. i still don't understand how it cost $40 million to put this
5:08 am
report together. but i'd much rather use that towards making our practices better in terms of getting more intelligence in the field. what is more humane, droning somebody, blowing them up as they leave the car, or is it bringing them in, giving them an opportunity to talk and be transparent? and when they don't, you use enhanced interrogation practices? what is more humane? >> this president chooses simply to blow them up. colleen says this on facebook, i don't care. i think i don't care. when you are at war with someone, you have to do what you have to do to get information. at least they weren't beheaded. >> jeremy on facebook says, 40 million on a report? that could have gone to our veterans or schools, bridges, et cetera. why we're spending ludicrous amounts of money to weaken ourselves? >> good point, the other top story, jonathan gruber went up on capitol hill. he had some explaining to do,
5:09 am
said i'm sorry that i called americans stupid. i was really, really glib. and he's glib kind of in this exchange with trey gowdy. listen. >> when did you realize that these comments are indefensible and inappropriate? >> i honestly didn't remember making them. >> you didn't remember calling your fellow citizens stupid, the rest of your fellow citizens don't give a damn about the uninsured, you tonight remember saying that? >> i don't. 'cause they were really glib and thoughtless comments that i made. >> he didn't remember. by the way, his whole approach yesterday, he had to be contrite, but it didn't come off well. i got a chance to watch it and flipped over to c-span. one woman who had a chance to question him but decided not to, just decided to let him know what obamacare has meant to her and her family is congresswoman cynthia lummis. she's a member of the oversight committee and what she said was extremely powerful. >> and it was because she and her husband had obamacare and they had signed up for it. they got the acknowledgment.
5:10 am
you've signed up for it. and yet when he went to get treatment before he died, they were told you don't have obamacare. there was a lot of confusion about it. so yesterday she told him to get over your damn glibness. watch this. >> i've been sitting in the hearing all morning listening to jonathan gruber repeat a canned so-called apology. he would say, i was glib and i was building myself up by tearing other people down. that's why he claimed he called the american people stupid. but after he had said it about a dozen times in a way that was just repeating a memorized statement, it just came across as so insincere. >> so many people are frustrated with obamacare, she had the opportunity -- there you've got the architect and the person running it essentially, had the
5:11 am
opportunity to vent and she did. and it was so powerful and so personal. >> i was watching yesterday and you keep hearing them grilling him and his responses. when she spoke, you actually saw how this is affecting american lives and american people. this is very real. >> right. and here is heather nauert, who is also very real. >> try to be. good morning. happening overnight, oscar pistorius could now face a decade behind bars. a judge has ruled that prosecutors can now appeal his acquittal. so if an appeals court rules this, pistorius -- that he should have been convicted of murder and not manslaughter, he would face a minimum of 15 years in prison. he was sentenced to five years for shooting and killing his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp. for the fourth night in a row, protesters in berkeley, california, clashing with police. take a look. police used bean bag shots to keep protesters back.
5:12 am
but some of the protesters lighting garbage cans on fire and even turning on one another. take a look. you just saw that guy get knocked out. he was trying to stop people from breaking windows in the neighborhood. that's when another protester smashed him in the face with a hammer. then in los angeles, kobe bryant and other lakers sporting i can't breathe t-shirts last night during the warm-ups. that happened in new york the night before. plane takes off from san francisco with 111 passengers and lands with 112. a woman went into labor while she was on board a southwest flight. luckily, a doctor and a nurse were also on the plane. they helped successfully deliver that baby. passengers say the whole thing was done so smoothly and quietly, that they didn't know about it until they eventually heard the baby cry. the mom and her brand-new boy are doing just fine. and those are your headlines.
5:13 am
>> what state was that baby born in? >> i'm wondering. >> place of birth. >> right over north dakota. >> thanks. >> coach class. thank you very much. coming up next, the terrorists are still at war with us. but is america still at war with them? what the controversial c.i.a. report means for the united states going forward. and the trial of the century is coming to the small screen. which oscar winning actor will play o.j.? we've got the answer. ♪ ♪ ♪

5:18 am
this will be great if it was a retrospective at the american civil liberties museum 50 years from now when we've won the war on terror. but the war on terror continues. americans still die and are at risk. so let's look at where we are. u.s. troops in iraq, about 1650 right now in iraq. 1500 are pledged to be sent. that can go up to 3100. department of defense says u.s. air operations have cost over $855 million as of november. of course, almost 5,000 death there is. then in afghanistan, we're keeping 1,000 more soldiers there than previously planned for. currently we've got about 11,000 troops there. 2014 was the bloodiest year in afghanistan since the war began. 4600 afghan security forces killed this year alone. so social media, beheading, the risk of lone wolves here in the united states. my view is this: there is
5:19 am
nothing moral, there is nothing moral about war. war is a horrible, difficult thing that poses great ethical dilemmas throughout the course of history. but at this point in our time, to put these numbers out, to put these allegations out, to put them out in a partisan way does a disservice to who we are, frankly, as a people. there are moral equivalencies, there are moral choices. we make them all the time. will we interrogate ten people in order to save a million? if we don't interrogate those ten people, will we live with the moral represencibility of losing those million people? these are very difficult choices that we're making. >> the democrats releasing this report, when we are at war, when we do have americans on the ground, it's putting their lives at risk and they're doing this why? because they're losing control of the house and the senate in a few months or in a month? is that why -- that was their motive here? >> i don't know what the motive
5:20 am
is. >> then why release that? >> we have to remain true to our american values. there is a time for confession. there is a time for expiation. there is a time for reconciliation. there is a time. but the next step is, and i ask the united states senate and senator feinstein, should we pay repairation. should we dismantle the c.i.a.? should we take the people you've cataloged in your report and bring them to the hague or some other world military tribunal? should we drop them on the steps of the united nations? what should we do? what do we do to retain our character as americans? what do we do to retain civilization in the world? these are tough, tough questions. but they shouldn't be politicized and i'm afraid the senate did politicize them to our national detriment. >> thank you so much. >> coming up. cam newton's season in serious jeopardy after a bad car crash. we have an update on how he's doing this morning. and think you've heard all

5:40 am
>> little dogs that have short hair coats or small in general really benefit from sweaters. i like this one from fab dog. what i like about this one is it's machine washable and it covers up their belly well and it keeps their stomach clean. because you also is a lot of snow and ice stuff. so you can put -- if your dog has a lot of irritation op their paw, there is paw butter. that works really well. >> what do we do with the sane bernard? >> she's an older girl and she has difficulty standing up. so arthritis is a big cause of dogs having a hard time getting up. so this is help them up harness. look. it's got handles on both sides so you end up having a good way to hold them up and keep them comfortable in the wintertime. it's for hunting dogs or dogs that like to go hiking, this is a jacket. we've even got a first aid kit

5:42 am
5:43 am
5:44 am
a shocking new report showing the irs incorrectly paid out more than $20 billion, tax dollars, in low income tax credits. how does that even happen? joining us now with the details from our sister network, maria
5:45 am
bartiromo. so good to see you. >> good to see you. >> this is blowing us away. this is getting less and less shocking by the day. everybody knows, there seems to be a culture of imcompetence and even political oriented culture at the irs. you have to hope that when the new congress comes in, there will be enough investigations and audits of what's happening here to actually get some accountability. here are the details. the irs paid out more than $6 billion in child tax credits in 2013 to people who were not eligible to receive them. >> probably means they don't have children. >> we don't know why they weren't eligible, but the bottom line is, they were not eligible. >> can we get the money back? >> we'll see. this is up to what we find out in 2015 from the new congress and that's why i said i'm hoping that maybe we will see some accountability as a result of new investigations that will take place. but seriously, there is clear that there is a history of imcompetence here and obviously everybody knows that they targeted conservative groups politically oriented
5:46 am
imcompetence as well. >> we're spending a trillion dollars on this new omnibus. >> we don't know what's in it. the fact is nancy pelosi has told us umpteen times, we will read it later after it's passed. that's what she said with obamacare. these multi-page bills are not actually being focused on -- >> they can just get away with it. >> that's the issue that really bothers most americans. theres no accountability. the irs answers to the treasury department. and yet we haven't really seen any accountability on a number of fronts. the most glaring one obviously is the targeting of conservative groups. but when you're talking about a situation where we're actually spending money, money so needed, then you see that there is so much more imcompetence and mistakes being made all over the place that somebody really needs to actually have some accountability. >> if you have just a smidgen of inclination that you want to watch maria on tv, her show starts in 14 minutes and you can go to foxes with dis.com/channel finder to find her. >> i find it on 106 a lot.
5:47 am
i know -- >> you're on 113 on fios. >> and 115 on sirius. >> and number one in my book. >> thank you. coming up, from race relations to the c.i.a. interrogation report, are democrats using current events to rally their base? we have two democrats, joe trippi and juan williams on that next. first let's check in with bill hemmer for what's coming up at the top of the hour. >> 43 in new york city. right? >> 43. that's right. time warner. >> he knows everything. >> i got you, maria. >> thank you. >> morning, everybody. general michael hayden, former director of the c.i.a. has been called a liar. he is here to defend himself and the charge of that interrogation report. what are americans to believe? we'll talk to him about that. jim jordan tried to get answers from jonathan gruber. we'll ask the congressman if he had any success. the irs is giving out billions of dollars in tax credits. that's all your money, america. and even after benghazi, what the u.s. government found at its

5:50 am
5:51 am
it shows that the c.i.a.'s actions a decade ago are a stain on our value and on our history. the release of this 500 page summary cannot remove that stain, but it can and does say to our people and the world that america is big enough to admit when it's wrong. >> i recognize that there is controversies in terms of some of the details. but what's not controversial is the fact that we did some things that violated who we are as a
5:52 am
people. >> democrats calling out the c.i.a. for its interrogation practices. but some are crying foul, saying the only reason they are really releasing this is to rally their political base. joining us are two democrats, i've seen their voter registration, talking about juan williams, screen left, and joe trippi, who is on the right side of the screen. i'm sure that's killing him. >> right. >> joe, let's start with you, there are many on the political right, there are people in the military complex. there are people at the c.i.a. who say this report is wrong, flat out not accurate. but the reason that diane feinstein and the democrats have put it out is because the democrats are going to lose control of the senate here in about a month and if they don't get it out now, they won't be able to. >> look, this thing was voted to be released 11-3. there are equal number of republicans voted to release it as voted against releasing it. i don't think that's right.
5:53 am
if it's to rev up the democratic base, first of all, diane feinstein, that's never been one of the things she's been noted for. and the election was a month ago. if the election were tuesday, maybe that would make some sense, too. but that's not it. these are real issues. look, we're going to have a big debate it. i urge everybody to read the c.i.a. report, read the majority report. read the minority report. that's ha this country is about. then come to their own conclusions about it and about the reasoning. >> juan, we had gary benson on. he was a c.i.a. agent, an officer, that is, back in the day. he says this is simply a political document to further the araneida of the left. -- further the agenda of the left. >> i don't get that. in fact, i'll tell you, the view from the left is one of people upset that president obama not only didn't launch this investigation and some kind of truth report earlier, much earlier in his administration in
5:54 am
the first term when he first came in, but also that he has made it very clear. he has no intent to prosecute even people who were found responsible for torture. so from the left's perspective, obama has been limp on this issue. democrats in power have been reluctant to engage this conversation until now. >> yeah, but joe, this portrays the c.i.a. as a bunch of rogue guys. they're patriots. in the days after 9-11, they were trying to do everything they could to make sure thousands of americans weren't killed. this was authorized by the president, ok'd by the department of justice, and watched over by the attorney general. they got the green light. and when eric holder took a look at it, he couldn't find anybody to prosecute. >> right. and the justice department says they're not going to reopen any criminal proceedings or prosecute anybody. it's about the decision -- it's not about did we torture people. it's about whether people
5:55 am
believe that's what america should be doing, that these are practices. we don't even need to get into on a morning show what some of the things that were done. we can't talk about them. i wouldn't on this show. but the question is, should we be doing that? that's ha this is about. that's why i think the c.i.a.'s report is important, as well as the minority report. >> all right. juan, i'll give you the final 20 seconds. >> well, i just think accountability and transparency so important in our democracy. i don't care if you're a democrat or republican, steve. i think you want to know what the government's been doing. here is an opportunity to -- either you're comfortable or uncomfortable. you can come to your own terms. but the truth is important and i think that's what was done with this report. >> they did stop waterboarding 11 years ago. a lot of people are saying y did they bring it out now? you guys say it's not politics. many do. juan and joe, thank you very much. great having you today. >> have a great day. before the top of the hour, coming up, the worst office
