4:18 am
and my impression -- when carter said that was hallelujah somebody in washington finally gets it. as you both know washington is a numbers town. they count stuff. even the pentagon is counting number of troops, number of weapons, trainers this kind of fight isn't about numbers. it's about strengths of will. ashe carter who is becoming very impressive nailed it because people fight for different things. in the united states state we fight for abstract concept. a constitution. we fight for our government. in the middle east governments have always been the enemy. they come and take your taxes, your sons they empower correct people to take their lands, sometimes they take their daughters. the soldiers don't feel much loyalty to the government accept for the shia militias. people fight for different things. arabs will fight for their faith.
4:19 am
for their family clan. and for their turf. and so faith is by far the most important motivator for them by far. you've got islamic state militants who have several years combat experience now, are anxious -- they're willing and even anxious to die for their cause, and the iraqi army just doesn't want to pay a price. so guess who's going to win? >> how do you square to two? last week we heard president obama in an interview saying we're not losing and the army has been an success. then you have that interview with ashe carter saying they don't have to will the fight. how do they square the two? >> the president lies he lives in a dream world. he doesn't understand military or the war. he doesn't understand the constitution either but that's another issue. you've got to get down to the facts of the case. the president, again, he and his
4:20 am
all the president's men and women engage in wishful thinking that somehow islamic state will magically be defeated. what we saw in ramadi was a brilliant military operation. not terrorism. we saw the use of a sand storm to move in. they coordinated their operations. you surprise shock simultaneous car bombings. al the iraqi army out numbered the islamic fighters five to six to one. the islamic state was so good that the iraqis collapsed. one thing we should never forget islamic state has a brand, a powerful brand. they wage psychological warfare better than we do. those iraqi soldiers who didn't want to be there in the first place knew if they're captured their heads are gone. >> great to see you on this

5:05 am
issue with the will o of the iraqis to fight isil and defend themselves. >> an issue. that's putting it nicely. it seems to be a divide. last week you had the president saying we're showing success, everything is fine. nothing to see here. you have this defense secretary caught sort of on the street almost in this unscripted moment answering this question about isis. and the fight of the iraqi army. we asked lieutenant colonel ralph peters about this weird double talk from the administration. here's what he had to say. >> when he said that, hallelujah somebody in washington finally gets it. washington is a numbers town. they count stuff. even the pentagon is counting number of troops weapons and trainers. this kind of fight isn't about numbers, it's about strength of will. ashe carter who is becoming a very impressive secretary is making a point. >> we need to get into the minds

if you're an adult with type 2 diabetes and your a1c is not at goal with certain diabetes pills or daily insulin your doctor may be talking about adding medication to help lower your a1c. ask your doctor if adding once-a-week tanzeum is right for you. once-a-week tanzeum is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes along with diet and exercise. once-a-week tanzeum works by helping your body release its own natural insulin when it's needed. tanzeum is not recommended as the first medicine to treat diabetes or in people with severe stomach or intestinal problems.
5:14 am
tanzeum is not insulin. it is not used to treat type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis and has not been studied with mealtime insulin. do not take tanzeum if you or your family have a history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you're allergic to tanzeum or any of its ingredients. stop using tanzeum and call your doctor right away if you experience symptoms of a serious allergic reaction which may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting; or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer which include a lump or swelling in your neck hoarseness, trouble swallowing or shortness of breath. before using tanzeum talk to your doctor about your medical conditions, all medicines you're taking, if you're nursing, pregnant, or may become pregnant. and about low blood sugar and how to manage it. taking tanzeum with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects with tanzeum include diarrhea nausea, injection site reactions
5:15 am
cough, back pain and cold or flu symptoms. some serious side effects can lead to dehydration which may cause kidney failure. ask your doctor if adding once-a-week tanzeum is right for you. go to to learn if you may be eligible to receive tanzeum free for 12 months. make every week a tanzeum week.

5:17 am
i was just in oklahoma city last week talking to people about this leading into it. he's going to get attention. and being the headliner didn't hurt at all. look at who came out on top, ben carson over ted cruz who was supposed to be the headliner. i'm more interested in issues. straw polls as you and i have talked about aren't a statistical measure. when you look at the issues that matter you've got 46% choose national security as their top issue, 39.6% economic only 14.4% social issues. and 85.2% of the 72% oklahoma crowd supported lifting restrictions on exporting oil and natural gas. the issues that matter most are the issues that carry. >> how do you explain if national security is at the top of the wish list who go with ben carson but he didn't have
5:18 am
experience. >> the fact that most primary voters on the republican side are open and shopping. you've been on the trail. as i've been out there talking to people what i found most interesting is they have excluded very few candidates. they may have said i have a problem with this candidate for this reason i'm not sure about this candidate for that reason i want to find the best nominee and the best potential president. and so what everybody has going for them at this early stage, they have a chance to make a good impression. if they take eventually of that once we get into the real campaign -- by that i mean field works and ads, they might have a chance to hang around. >> i agree with the davids. >> rand paul taking over the senate floor fighting the senate republican leader. he's trying to strike a balance between national security and privacy rights. >> i think it's a great place to be for rand paul. he's not earning friends on the
5:19 am
hill but he needs to win the country. democrats and republicans feel the same way rand paul does. i think some of it is for show. i don't doubt his sincerity. i want to add to it 85% of americans want to see a fresh face. ben carson is a fresh face. he's well-spoken. >> let's go down the table. 15, 20 seconds each. we'll start with you. hillary clinton, she finally spoke to the press. you say voters want somebody new, she's not new. >> no. also you're looking at the democratic side we don't have challenger who is out there. i enjoy listening to bernie sanders. i think he's doing something important but it's not going to be bernie sanders. hillary needs to get out there and talk about benghazi more and get in front of the panel sooner
5:20 am
than later. >> the e-mails on benghazi was there anything in there that's damaging. >> i think the fact this is a drip drip. it's about her recent record of secretary of state. foreign policy could be a huge factor in the election. al if she gets dinged on that and we're talking about this a year from now. >> i say we take foreign policy for the reality for all candidates no one goes in there knowing as much as they think. everybody tries to burnish their credentials. hillary clinton's detriment will be the drip drip drip. hillary clinton is not going to stop. >> great to have you on memorial day. good to see you all. coming up you have to see this video. a tour bus goes up in flames near the pentagon. how the driver was able to get everyone out okay. hundreds of american flags meant for veterans' graves go missing, but a group of girl

5:27 am
cookie sales. did anybody in the troop say i don't want to do the flags i want to go on a trip and go hiking and have a pizza party, or did everyone rally around the cause? >> everyone wanted to do this. we felt like it was the right thing to do. we would rather help our community than do something for ourselves. >> what kind of lessons do you think your learned? >> part of it i feel that there is a lot of responsibility in it just in the fact that instead of just seeing it as oh, i could get community service hours and i'm done. we saw it as we can go do things for other people. it made us feel really good that we could show that we really appreciated the sacrifice of our veterans. >> we certainly have that perfect balance, it seems, of honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, and also
