1:08 am
toxic mix of nonsense. and a tweet at john mccain for saying trump's immigration rhetoric fires up the crazies. john mccain should be defeated in the primaries. graduated last in his class. dummy. trump's remarks miss the mark. mccain was not last in his class at the naval academy. his grades weren't good but not the worst and he's not in the race. what he is the former 2008 gop presidential nominee, the current chairman of the powerful senate armed services committee and decorated war hero. shannon? >> another interesting day. thank you. it's one stop shopping tonight for democrats interested in the presidential sweepstakes. major declared players are in cedar rapids iowa. that's where mike emmanuel is as well. >> reporter: hillary clinton rallied her iowa staff and volunteers ahead of the first democratic 2016 cattle call. >> this fundamentally comes down

1:10 am
heavily to make sure she doesn't suffer an opening upset. >> hillary clinton folks have a strong organization and are working to improve it. a lot of field staff here in the state. we still have to see that excitement and she hasn't been here as much as she's been slowly rolling out her campaign as the way they described it. >> o'malley made the case in des moines that comprehensive immigration reform would be smart for all. stated positively by getting 11 million of our neighbors out of the underground economy into the light of a fully participatory america. that will be good for wages. >> reporter: most expected toughest shots will be aimed at 2016 republicans and not each other tonight but with all five candidates there, you can expect plenty of analysis afterward about the level of enthusiasm for each of them. shannon? >> thanks mike. former president george h.w. bush is still in intensive care at a maine hospital tonight according to son, jeb, who made

1:24 am
wife of one of the men being held. >> i never wanted my husband as part of the deal. i did not want the u.s. or world to give up something for him but i think we could have even be forcing them to sit at the table and say release the americans you're holding hostage and then we'll talk. >> reporter: the meeting with the president and saudi foreign minister came after a phone call from saudi's king and i should also point out the fact that ash carter the defense secretary, is going to saudi arabia next week probably has a little bit to do with it as well. shannon? >> we'll talk about the continued efforts of selling the deal with the panel. thank you, kevin. reuters reports the death toll from a car bombing in iraq has grown to more than 100 people. the bomb went off at a busy market about 20 miles northeast of baghdad. it brought down several buildings crushing muslims celebrating the end of ramadan. this is a one-year anniversary of the downing of a malaysian airlines flight above

surveillance video from the prison. the drug lord paces a few times and slips out through a hole behind a half wall. mexican lawmakers admit that no one was alerted that he disappeared from cameras for at least 18 minutes and one official says maybe 20. there wasn't a guard exclusively dedicated to monitoring guzman. one person watched two screens that show images from 20 cameras. those important minutes allow the drug lord to race down the mile-long tunnel on a mike rigged to two carts on rails and we've now learned the concrete in guzman's shower was just purch punched out because it was only two tour three inches thick and didn't contain rebar. they are investigating prison personnel to determine whether they were involved in the escape plan or caused a delay in issuing alert. as el chapo escaped a maximum security prison for the second

>> my judgment and my experience is this was an isis inspired attack and it's been open as a
1:39 am
terrorism investigation by the fbi, which is significant. >> you guys confirming this was an isis inspired shooting? >> we're not confirming that. we're saying that is a possibility that we will explore like any other possibility and this time we have no indication this was inspired by or directed by anyone other than himself. >> some analysis on where we are in the investigation into the murders in chattanooga yesterday. let's bring in our panel to talk about it. all right. good friday to all of you. tucker i'll start with you. carefully choosing words talking about whether it's terrorism or linked to isis. still early on in the investigation. >> they ought to carefully choose their words. nothing worse than those who jump to conclusions in power and over time will figure it out. what i look at is the lack of an
1:40 am
adult conversation. the healthy country is not whether tragedies occur but they always do. i would like a noncrazy nonnative person to stand up and say is there a connection between a massive increase of immigration and attacks on our soil and do we have anything to learn from france and sweden and belgium in a way that doesn't demonize anybody that acts in everyone's interest. you won't hear that conversation. it's a shame. >> there are certain conversations that certain people don't want you to have. you can't have conversations and use certain words or discuss certain topics. >> it's interesting. when i was preparing for this i thought what you thought. i thought is there something we need to be looking at here. i think everyone knows i'm extremely pro-immigrant and bordering on borders type of person but there's something that needs to be looked at. doesn't mean that we know the
1:41 am
conclusion. the minute you say that then you are accused of being islam islamaphobe. this is a middle class person who everyone says was a nice person. something came in and radicalized him at some point. in terms of whether it's isis inspired or not, even if they don't find a smoking gun, we know that al qaeda and isis propels people to kill americans and these recruiting centers are unprotected and unarmed and so even if there's no smoking gun, it's clear he inspired some -- people doing this have been inspired to do this probably just by following what isis is saying. >> part of this conversation is the fact that we know that these are gun-free zones in most cases. we're just getting in late tonight from defense secretary
1:42 am
ash carter now talking about this saying that he's approved immediate steps taken by the armed services to enhance force protection in the wake of the shooting. he's also directed the services to examine additional steps that can be taken to ensure the safety of service members and civilians at military installations. he's asked for recommendations by the end of next week charles. >> this is obvious they know what the recommendation is going to be. to change the law that doesn't allow marines and soldiers to carry weapons in these recruiting centers. that, if it ever made sense 20 years ago before 9/11 and before islamic terrorism and before the targeting of these centers, it makes no sense now. it will be changed. that's two things we can do. one, there's a phobia about a targeted mosques as places where
1:43 am
we get information. that's exactly where you have to go. it's so politically correct. it's so insane not to do that because you would be afraid of a bias or prejudice. these shooters are not randomly chosen from the population. you don't have infinite resources. the second is what osama bin laden said. people will follow the strong horse. in the end, the only way you're going to counter this is by having islamic radicalism defeated in the field. and that will mean isis in syria the same way that the defeat of al qaeda in afghanistan at least for a time restrained the growth of the recruits. >> what we're being warned about is in the immediate future it will take 10 to 20 years to get a handle on some of those threats overseas.
1:44 am
this is not a short-term situation. this is long-term. >> it's generational. communism took 70 years before it was defeated. this could take equally as long perhaps even longer. >> tucker the point of going into mosques. a difficult conversation. when you talk about that you have all kinds of constitutional protections. these people are american citizens most of them and there's been great controversy in the past about going into mosques with the specific purpose of spying on conversations. >> you have two options. you can further militarize the country and push up against american citizens civil liberties or you can stop the problem before it starts with your immigration policy. nothing affects life in america more than a question of who we let in and yet there's no question over which the average american has less control. no one asks the average person who we ought to let in and in what number. there's no referendum on that. i have a view on this shut up
1:45 am
racists. they are told to get off the stage and go away. you're not smart enough to make that decision. that's a shame. >> oozethere's a practical issue, even if you stop immigration today, unless you want to deport the muslims, this problem will persist for generations. >> a bigger problem if there's 12 million. >> at the point we are now at 6 million which has produced recruits that have shot up a lot of marines and soldiers at this point you're going to have to decide whether you're going to go into the mosque and listen in or not and what's your answer? >> i think you ought to. the problem is getting worse and so why not stop the problem on our border and then we can deal with it within our borders as well. >> this idea you can't go into a mosque if we know there might be radicals in there. it's absurd. i'm a christian. if christians were routeinely going out in the name of jesus and killing people blowing up
1:46 am
abortion clinics for example, happening at the same level, i would say go in churches and do what you need to do. it has to be done in a constitutional way. you have to have a reasonable suspicion. you have to get a warrant. you have to do other things. the idea that this is supposed to be off-limits i don't agree with that. >> we'll discuss during the break. up next, the friday lightning round.

planned parenthood stands behind our work to help women and families donate tissue for medical research when they wish

1:51 am
suddenly they are talking about hearts and lungs and people are saying you're talking about crushing a baby and planned parenthood is saying it wasn't compassionate enough the way we speak about it. most people don't think there's a compassionate way to do this. there's no
1:52 am
aounced investigations. senate grassley sounds like senate judiciary is going to do that as well. he sent letters out to attorney general loretta lynch asking her to look into this as well. does anything concrete come from this conversation. >> i think people abortion fruitfully financed a series of ads that ran this tape all two and a half hours of it. the decent is not whether it's you will legal. lots of things are illegal. horrifying. no decent person who watches this can come away with any other viewvment half the congress, the democratic side is funded by the abortion industry. not a single democrat running for president has been forced to answer for this video. hillary clinton received award from planned parenthood. yes i take money from these people? >> we did reach out to her campaign and the others and no response from them on that. i want to talks about iran as well. the nuke deal the president continues to work on selling it here is a little bit on what we are hearing today as the president met with saudi
1:53 am
arabia's foreign minister to talk with them about the deal. >> okay. we don't have it but, you can imagine what was said. i will tell you. secretary kerry says i can assure you our intelligence community is completely comfortable that 24 days is not enough time for them to be able to evade our technical means our capacity to observe or ability to know what is happening. debate about whether these inspections are really if there is any teeth to them if you get it 24 days to hide stuff what do you make of that. >> he is delusional that the intelligence people don't care if instead of spot inspections, any time we're now going to get essentially a month's notice for iran and iran can dispute any requirement. this is a complete cave. in even if you get a resolution coming out of the u.n. where a committee including iran decides that you are going to have inspect, the idea that you can get snap back sanctions that all of a sudden are going to be automatically executed and the administration claims it's
1:54 am
extremely clever because it designed a mechanism or 00 chinese and the aren't going to have a veto they are never going to get the reimposition of sanctions. it is over as of the signing of this agreement. >> kirsten, a lot of push back bipartisan push back on the hill over the fact that it looks like the administration is going to go to the u.n. first for a vote on, this instead of letting congress vote first on its potential approval. that's if any democrats that the president is going to it need. >> i think the president's herb right now is going to be democrats. everybody is sort of all eyes on chuck schumer to see what he is going to do. i think they are trying to woo the democrats. they are going to need i don't-to-override a veto. secretary kerry did say today it's not necessarily a month. it could be two days. it could at a moment's notice. he says that that is being misconstrued. as for the u.n. thing i think that it makes no difference whether it goes to the u.n. first or not. it's not going to change the fact that the congress has to approve the deal. to me, it just seems like much to do about nothing.
1:55 am
>> democrats and republicans do think it makes a difference and they are speaking up and pushing back against the white house tucker? >> i don't know if they really think it does. i can't add much to what charles wrote on the brilliant column he wrote on this morning which i would urge all of our viewers to read other than to make the obvious point which is the president made a bad deal, we shouldn't be surprised. he has never shown any evidence of deal-making ability or even the desire to make a deal even on obvious things like helping americans being held in iran. taps disaster. of course it is. >> push back about major garrett a former colleague here at fox news asking that question. we heard from the wife of pastor saudi abedini being head in iran. administration says they did bring it up numerous times and it is still under discussion. we will continue to watch that as four americans remain missing and being held in iran. that is it for the panel. stay tuned to meet incredible woman who had a special visit with the commander and chief today.
