3:12 pm
first, this is what some of our fox affiliates are covering. jacksonville florida man though authorities say tried to help undercover fbi agent explode pressure cooker bomb at the 9/11 memorial in kansas city. claimed responsibility for helping inspire terrorist attacks in texas and australia. fox 45 in baltimore with the announcement from mayor stefanie rowling's blake that she will not seek re-election. this comes just days after city officials authorized a 6.5-million-dollar settlement if with the family of a man who died in police custody and the controversy over how she handled the ensuing protests. and this is a live look at detroit from our affiliate fox 2, the big story there tonight the expulsion of one republican state lawmaker and the resignation of another in a bizarre sex scandal. representative todd corser admitted sending a phony email accusing himself of being a quote bisexual porn
3:13 pm
addicted sex deviant. aimed at making his real life affair seem less believable if it were exposed by anonymous blackmailer. that's live look from outside the beltway from "special report." we'll be right back.
3:14 pm
i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital
3:15 pm
after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures.
3:16 pm
eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. there are new questions tonight about whether vice president joe biden will enter a democratic race that seems a lot more winnable now because of hillary clinton's problems. biden bore his soul last night on tv. correspondent peter doocy reports it was moving and, perhaps, telling. good evening, peter. >> good evening, bret. for the first time last night the vice president explained he may not be able to run for president because he doesn't think a candidate can break down the way he met with veterans in colorado this summer. >> >> it was going great and a guy in the back yells major
3:17 pm
beau biden bronze star, served with him in iraq. and all of a sudden, i lost it. >> still that interview inspired a rare, encouraging comment from a former member of obama's inner circle. speech writer jon favreau colbert interview shows why joe biden is one of the best interviews we have in service. i'm with colbert, he should run. the won't influence his decision at all is hillary clinton. >> everybody talks about a lot of the factors, the other people in the race, whether i can raise the money, whether i can put together an organization. that's not the factor. the factor is can i do it. >> that kind of candor has made biden the honest and trustworthy in a new poll even though he says there is no timetable to jump. in the v.p. has been spending time with
3:18 pm
strategically important friends though just in case. >> build labor, we build america. build labor, we build the middle class. >> only joe biden knows what happens next. but when somebody at the ed sullivan theater last night shouted for him to run, the vp smiled and said:able careful what you wish for. bret? >> peter, thank you. if you google the words tonight hillary clinton and panic, you have plenty of reading to do. the assessment by many pundits is if her campaign isn't there yet, it should be. chief white house correspondent ed henry has the latest tonight. another hit in the polls this was not the image her campaign needed. a collapse of the stage at the university of wisconsin, milwaukee. particularly rough coming just hours after fox news reported clinton's earlier event in ohio was only about half full. so clinton and her aides raced to tout the larger size of the wisconsin event. clinton spokesman nic
3:19 pm
merrill tweeting to fox, quote: this is just the overflow as clinton greeted supporters in the overflow room. >> i'm sorry that there wasn't enough room in the other venue but boy, it's great to see all of you, thank you. >> clinton is under intense pressure from campaign donors to show she can halt the clash with the email controversy. nationally clinton has dropped 10 points in a month. she is at 37% while democratic socialist senator bernie sanders pulls in 27% and vice president joe biden gets 200%. while biden leads donald trump and jeb bush in head-to-head matchups. clinton is in a dead heat with both republicans. democrat bob kerrey told fox business clinton's explanations over her server simply don't add up. >> it wasn't because she wanted to carry two cell phones around. she is secretary of state. give me the red one, give me the blue one. who the hell cares? clinton is being rolled out

[ applause ] >> thank you. >> people from all over the nation tuned in on tv and thousands attended the funeral this week for lt. joseph gliniewicz, the fallen police officer was hailed as a hero who was shot to death in the line of duty. now in a stunning twist, fox news has learned that some close to the investigation believe that gliniewicz's death might have been a well-staged suicide. a source who was a member of the task force tells fox news the evidence suggests the possibility that officer joseph gliniewicz might have killed himself. the source says gliniewicz's body was discovered face down in a remote area. his service weapon next to him had. two shell casings were found. one came from a shot that hit gliniewicz' kevlar vest. roughly you another feet away another casing found from the fatal shot that struck gliniewicz underneath his vest downward trajectory. sources say one hand is found underneath his chest in what is described as gun holding position. he had no defensive wounds and no sign of a struggle,
3:25 pm
especially one to save his own live. officer gliniewicz's last radio calls are the indication of any suspects. there are no witnesses and there have been no arrests. >> the county coroner also tells me suicide is a possibility. and while police say they haven't ruled anything out, they insist this remains a homicide investigation. either way the death of gliniewicz is a tragedy. the community so far has rallied behind the family and is hosting a fundraising event tonight. bret? >> matt senne live in chicago. thank you. >> the dow was up 103 points. the s&p 500 grew 9 the nasdaq 26. short trading week the dow and s&p 500 were both up 2%. nasdaq jumped up almost 3 %. the house today cast largely symbolic votes against the president's iran nuclear deal and sought to radio strict his authority to lift sanctions against tehran. this happens one day after the senate ensured the

on this 9/11 anniversary, a look at the past and the present. the obama administration is currently being criticized by how it's waging a war against isis and radical islam in general. most times on this day we rightly focus on the nearly 3,000 lives lost here on our soil. sometimes we forget the pace and force of the military and intelligence communities' response immediately afterwards. one year after the 9/11 attacks, september 2002, i was a reporter at the pentagon for fox and we put together this piece about the effort by green berets and cia officers alongside indigenous afghan forces to oust the taliban and take out al qaeda training camps in afghanistan. fewer than 100 u.s. personnel did that in less than 100 days. ♪ >> i can hear you.

3:34 pm
>> on horseback in afghanistan. >> to embed talented u.s. special forces people in with each of these various so-called war lords or local army and have them develop confidence in each other and then begin to develop our air power to what they were doing on the ground. that turned the tide. >> one by one the afghan cities started to fall to the u.s.-led opposition forces. the taliban strong hold of kandahar was the last to fall. commanding general tommy franks -- >> -- taliban forces have been engaged as they have moved out of the city of kandahar. >> from the air, escaping al qaeda and taliban convoys were identified and destroyed. >> you will see an individual walk between the two vehicles just before a guided ammunition destroys both vehicles. >> hundreds of captured enemy fighters were taken to afghan prisons around the country. prisoners held at a fortress

>> a me. of silence -- a moment of silence around new york and the country. as remember 9/11 and all those who lost their lives on this day. this as the war on terror continues in a different way. you just saw that piece from 2002. now there are real challenges for this administration. one of them is syria and the effort to get syrian rebels in place. this piece from politico with all the u.s.-trained fighters dead, captured or missing, and their leader in the hands of al qaeda, top u.s. commanders are scrambling this week to determine how to revive the half billion-dollar program to create a moderate syrian material fight the islamic state. the outgoing of the chief of staffs general martin dempsey who viewed the force as a crulment of the military strategy in syria
3:42 pm
and iraq is conferring with top pentagon officials behind closed doors to figure out what options are left for what is widely considered a policy and military failure according to senior defense officials. let's start there let's bring in our panel jonah goldberg senior editor at national review. care citizen powers "u.s.a. today" columnist and syndicated columnist chalk. crawted? , jonah? >> i don't think the country is better shape 15 days before 9/11 or the day after. i think that the war on terror in many ways is worse. certainly the ideology has metastasized that isis is a problem. that is much greater than al qaeda ever was. and talk about syria for just a moment. the effort to combat isis in syria, this its harnt resolve and training of this army that never materialized, you talk to some intelligence people and they say that this makes the bay of pigs look like the
3:43 pm
normandy landing it has been so unbelievably incompetent. i think that, you know, you can put a lot of blame on bush for going into the iraq war that's a fine argument to have. there is a lot of blame to go on president obama for how we got out of iraq and the mess he has left in the middle east. >> i guess kirsten the contrast what we saw after 9/11 and obviously the country was unified on 9/12 to do something quickly but then to see the inability to get a moderate syrian force or any force to do anything in syria is kind of shocking >> also, because i think part of it was the threat was so down played if you remember how it was down played by president obama that we had basically taken care of this problem. we now find out that it looks like it's possible that the books were being cooked by the intelligence analysis was saying it was a much bigger threat than what we were hearing about. and then somewhere in the -- you know, the where it was getting transmitted up to the white house it was
3:44 pm
changing into something that was much lesser of a threat which would suggest that the white house was asking for this because it is really not in the intelligence agency's interest to be down playing terror threats. >> and that's interesting. that piece, jawms rosen pressed at the white house the other day about, remember candidate obama pressed about the bush administration saying that they were cooking the books on the iraq war. and now there are allegations from 50 intel analysts that that's what's happened. >> look, when you have an operation that's utterly incompetent as the fictional syrian army, 60 people that we had trained, all of whom i you believe are lost, missing, or captured or dead, you have to cook the books. but it seems to me the bigger issue is do we have the leadership, the will in the country. the will depends on leadership to maintain generational struggle. we remember the cold war as this wonderful, great victory. we're all united.
3:45 pm
we weren't. it lasted almost half a century. we had a victory or two at the beginning, turkey and greece in the truman days and then it was a terrible slog, korea, vietnam with defeats, the bay of pigs. but, in the end, we had leadership. every president said, starting with especially kennedy in 1961, it is a long twilight struggle. what we are getting here and what we got for the last six years with obama is a president who said this war is unsustainable, it's hurting us. it's changing us in ways it's god to end. as if -- it's got to end. as if we could decree it's end. the tide of war is receding. no surprise the country doesn't want to continue the struggle. and it seems to me there is one other mistake. we always identify it with al qaeda or isis and the sunni radicals. the other church of radical islam is iran. shiite and it is organized

country with a huge economy with oil and we have now, as of yesterday, made it into a major regional power which will acquire nuclear weapons this is a long twilight struggle and it looks as if we have leadership that doesn't want to recognize it and wants to live in a different universe. >> in the changing geopolitical situation we have seen as the u.s. steps back a bit, perhaps, russia has stepped forward. we confirm that russian forces are on the ground in syria first. and there are are big numbers. tonight, senior defense official is saying that components of russian surface-to-air missiles have been seen in syria. and the president talked about russia in syria today. >> i remember a conversation i had with mr. putin four or five years ago where i told him that was a mistake, it would make things worse as long as continued to support assad. he did not take my warnings
3:47 pm
and as a consequence things have gotten worse. but we are going to be engaging russia to let them know that you can't continue to double down on a strategy that's doomed to failure. >> jonah? >> i love that. you know, if only -- the problem is only that putin didn't listen to me. right? i mean that is the gist of it. this is a a guy who came in promising a re-set and was based on ideological point of view about the world and whenever reality diverge with the the ideological point of view he stayed with his ideological point of view. russia he mocked mitt romney russian was evil threat. poo pooed. the world was much more dangerous place than when barack obama took office. >> quickly, kirsten, you talk to democrats on the hill they see iran how they got it through as a struck tri. but, you know, is he is talking about russia there. they are not listening. china is behind the hack on
3:48 pm
the government opm system. and iran now is emboldened. >> right. yeah. well it's interesting to listen even in the tone that he is using and the way is talking to, you know, to putin as though putin is going to just not do something because barack obama said it's a mistake. i think it's so disengaged, right? it's not this -- you need to threaten him, basically. like you can't just tell him not it do it because it's a mistake. >> next up. the friday lightning round. a lot of politics. hey babe, last one home cooks? ♪ ♪ ♪ another tie.

it is time for us to elevate this debate from divisive name-calling, from
3:52 pm
sound bites without solutions and start discussing how we will make the country better for all if a conservative is elected president. >> former texas governor rick perry dropping out of the race today. what about that? we're back with the panel, jonah? >> you think it's something of a shame. if this rick perry had run in 2012, we might be looking at the end of his first term as president. he mailed it in the first time around and he never recovered from the damage he did to his reputation from that. you think he did husband homework this tomb and i think it's kind of a shame. >> kirsten? >> yeah. you think it was obviously impossible for him to recover from the last election and also i you think it's a hard time to be an establishment candidate. one of 17 and also one of the establishment candidates. somebody who holds elective office if you look at the polls that's not really a popular thing right now. >> charles, you said that gilmore would be the first to drop out when we asked. >> i think gilmore was
3:53 pm
dropped out by somebody else. cnn isn't having him in the debate so i think. >> qualifies as a win for you? >> i will call it a win if you like. one other factor, not the determining one, but he joined the race last time around right after surgery. he was not in any shape to do anything, let alone to run for president. and he was also unprepared. he thought he could sail in and he was playing in the major leagues without having played a game in the minors. that doomed him. he didn't have a chance this time around. >> all right. vice president joe by biden on cbs last night with an emotional appearance saying how, basically, charles, it's tough to emotionally get off and over, of course, the loss of his son bee beau biden and that may factor into his decision. >> i still think inhe will runsy because of what beau said to him, "i want you to run." i do think the appearance last night is the perfect illustration of why is
3:54 pm
rising and hillary is crashing. that was authenticity of a kind that was almost painful to watch. and you watch hillary with her contrived answers and her apologies and you see exactly why she is sliding. >> first national poll, kirsten, that has hillary below 40%, and that's what we were told the biden people were watching for. >> they were talking to people close to him and the thing he cares most about is a democrat carrying on obama's, you know, the next term of obama, essentially. and he feels that he is the person who can be that person, then he dual it. if he he feels like hillary is the person who can do it, then he dual it he has to feel like she isn't going to be able to go the distance to get into the race. >> i think that's exactly why he is a problematic replacement for hillary. yeah, he is a better plugs for hillary. hillary is a bad candidate. but, biden is even more tied to the obama record. he will not brook any attacks on the obama record. and the idea of putting an even more ardent stay the course candidate at a time when everyone wants an outsider and some fresh blood i think is -- just
3:55 pm
shows you how much damage obama done to the party it's all these old guys and they don't haveny fresh faces that can come in. >> here is fresh face on the republican side governor scott walker today. >> now more than ever we need your help going forward. i would love to have your support. i would love to have your vote. love to have you help us get others to caucus for us because, in the end, that's what this is all about. it's all about the grass roots. >> in iowa, dropping, i mean every day, jonah. >> yeah. he peaked too soon he didn't know how to handle being a frontrunner and now he doesn't know how to be in the back of the pack. >> he is a one rise to fame fighting the with the unions. that wasn't enough. he needed to show something more and he wasn't able to do it. >> come back? >> it's going to be hard. he is he a regional candidate that very well running in one state. couldn't nationalize it. he is -- it's not over o. you can have a miracle like mccain, but it's very, very long shot. >> that is it for this
