tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  October 13, 2015 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT

12:00 pm
among eighth and 11th graders simpymptoms include lack of sle and problems cutting back and teens lie about the amount of time they spend sending messages. thanks for being part of "the real story." i'm gretchen. what to do in syria. anything but what we're doing now. how about this? how abouts we roll with russia, partner with putin. today hear the new argument that it's time for the white house and the kremlin to get it together. plus fox news polls for democrats who wooant to be president. we'll have those for you ahead of tonight's debate. plus we'll have the story of the paramedic bride who raced from her own wedding to help save relatives from a car crash. and now you're going to have to read "playboy" for just the articles. hugh hefner's iconic magazine is stripping out the naked ladies. let's get to it. now "shepard smith reporting" live from the fox news desk. and first from the fox news desk this tuesday afternoon,
12:01 pm
let's think of syria and isis and russia in a whole new way. is what we're doing now working in syria? remember the strategy, right? back the moderate syrian rebels, stir in some air support, we'll degrade and destroy isis. remember? that was never going to work. so let's think of it another way. like this. america's best hope for beating the islamic state is to team up with russia. the united states side by side with the russians get rid of isis and restore stability. that's what we should do. according to the authors of an op-ped today in "the new york times" newspaper. it's from two foreign affairs professors. one from american university, the other from harvard. here's what they claim. "u.s. policy toward syria has so far been based on a hope and a prayer, and they write, and i quote, "the united states should have two goals in syria. first, bring order to those parts o tpart s of the country that the islamic state does not control, and second, strive to build a coalition of forces that can
12:02 pm
contain the eventually replace it. russia's intrusion could offer a chance to achieve both. set aside our prejudices and heated political rhetoric while they write "russia is not an intruder in syria, russia has been there for decades and now know their way around so stop the table thumping" they implore. realize the cold war is over and get down to the business of statecraft. are awe ready for such a thing? today, vladimir putin, macho, said the united states is not ready to work with them. says countries like the united states don't really know what they're doing there. >> translator: i think that some of our partners just have a mess in their heads. they have no clear understanding what has been going on in reality in the area, and what results they want to achieve. >> a mess in our heads.
12:03 pm
vladimir putin, macho. seems isis is mad at both of us, us and the macho one. the report is isis put out a recording today that calls for muslims to launch a holy war against russians and americans. see that? isis against russia and america. what if we accommodated them? we go to the space with them. can't we go to the war with them? let's bring in mike barrett, former defense department intelligence officer. it was this or lead with the debate, and i chose this. mike, let's just concede what we've done was wrong, what we're doing is not working, and move forward. could this offer some hope? >> yes, shep, i actually think it could. i mean, you know, at the end of the day i don't think you're going to see just u.s. and russia, see it under the umbrella of the united nations, the fig leaf of international legitimacy. president obama is going to need that domestically. putin doesn't want to be seen as directly aligned with the u.s. this is how you get the deal done. take a look at the situation,
12:04 pm
find out what you actually want to achieve, this case the death of isis, and make the deal to make that happen. if russia can bring together iran and assad from the one side, and the u.s. can bring together and keep under control the sunni states from the other side, we could tighten the nice on isis and bring those guys down. >> gordon adams and steve walt wrote this for "the new york times" today. one of the questions was, of course, what about overreach with the two of us in there together? there's always that possibility. >> there is a risk of overreach, but i thing there's much more of an overreach when you have a muddled strategy, frankly what the u.s. has had for four years. as you and i talked about many times, at the end of the day, right, if you want isis gone, make the deal with assad. it's a deal with the devil but that's sometimes what you have to do in the real world, and, you know, at the end of the day this is where we're down to. if we continue doing half measures we've been doing, arming some sunni, hoping that other student sunnis will take but not assad, hope the kurds have success, hope the russian
12:05 pm
and turkish and u.s. and other air forces don't bang into each other, hope no missiles go astray. you look at a situation last week where we had the hospital bombed by accident. you have a situation where military weapons are being used by multiple sides for multiple objectives and a very small geography. that is a recipe for disaster. how can the world take a deep breath and step back from this? we can come together through the international organization, again mostly as a fig leaf, i'm not looking at the u.n. for troops or anything, but you want to have -- >> just cover. >> yeah. you want some political top cover to give you the excuse to make the deal that needs to be made. let me be clear about this, shep, is a horrible deal. nobody wants to make a deal with assad, nobody wants to reward putin for his coming in aggressively there without coming in through the international community. at the end of the day the fact the on the ground are what the facts on the ground are. isis has got to go. if that means assad has to maintain some leadership over part of the country, so be it. >> politically could we stomach that? could leaders in the white house and all the adoring men and could the pentagon, could they
12:06 pm
all get on board with this and work somehow with vladimir putin? >> i think the pentagon would be much more willing to do this than the political leadership. i think the obama administration like i said if we'd go through the u.n. they'd probably be willing to take this because that is where their heart lies is diplomacy as a solution. the military knows it's a mess. that's why we haven't been going in there, why we haven't done the no-fly zone. some of these things people bandy about as though it's very simple and no cost. the military pays the price for that. we know how hard it is in the military to keep good intelligence, to make sure you never have a mistake, to watch out for collateral damage. so i think the military would come to grips with it at the end of the day. the challenge is going to be the political rhetoric particularly during a presidential season. >> yep, the problem is always the political rhetoric. mike barrett, great to see you, thank you. >> thank you. the op-ped piece is titled "a road to damascus via moss owe." is it the only way out of the mess for the united states to team up with russia? you can google it or look for it at nytimes.com.
12:07 pm
meantime investigators in the netherlands say it was no question it was a russian-made missile that blew up flight 17 that killed everybody on there, 298 people. those investigators issued their final report today. as part of it they actually reconstructed the front section of that jet using wreage from the kprash sicrash site. includes some of the nose, the cockpit and the business class. there's more on our slide show this afternoon. first this is an animation showing how a surface-to-air missile was able to -- could take out a plane like this. investigators say the missile exploded within three feet of the cockpit, killed three crew members inside, broke off in the front section of the jet. when the warhead detonated, it sprays thousands of medical fragments and they found some of the fragments in the bodies of some of the crew members. it is gruesome to go through. closer look at the reconstructive cockpit, withdrew can tell the markings from the explosion and the fragments all over. after the blast they say the cockpit and the floor of the business class tore away almost
12:08 pm
instantly from the rest of the aircraft. they also say the rest of the jet, itself, kept flying for, like, five miles before it hit the ground a minute later or so. after the crash, crews found wreckage scattered for miles. trace gallagher in our west coast news hub. trace, dutch investigators did not say who fired this missile. >> no, because the report, shep, was never intended to assign blame. in fact, the dutch board that conducted the investigation doesn't have the authority to on collude who exactly shot the missile. they'll leave that to dutch prosecutors in the criminal investigation. but the findings of the report are consistent with what both the united states and the ukraine believe which is the plane was shot down by russian-backed rebels armed with a surface-to-air missile, and dutch investigators also say the pro-russian rebels were in charge of the area where the missile was fired. the ukrainian foreign minister says they'll keep pushing for absolute evidence. listen. >> we will find other ways both
12:09 pm
in the sense of bringing them to justice, and in it is clearly proven that russia is a state sponsor of terrorism. >> but the dutch board also blamed ukraine for not shutting down the airspace to civilian traffic. >> russia calls this biased. >> yeah, which is why russia came out with a competing presentation saying the missile must have been fired from you ra ukrainian-held territory. russia claims the missiles dutch investigators say is responsible is no longer found in russia's arsenal and the russian report criticizes the dutch board for discounting other potential reasons for the plane's destruction. such as an air-to-air rocket or an internal explosion. the dutch report says the impact pattern could only have come from a surface-to-air missile and remember the u.n. security council wanted to set up an
12:10 pm
international tribunal but russia vetoed that. the white house now says it fully supports all efforts to bring those responsible to justice. shep? >> trace, the white house says there are strong signs that iran violated united nations resolution when it test fired a brand new long-range missile. this just weeks after the iranians and western nations reached a deal to slow down that country's nuclear development. we reported here yesterday iran's government-run media reported successful test launch of the country's first missile that can reach some american military bases overseas. it can also, we're told, reach iran's sworn enemy, israel. this is the first missile test since launching that, or reaching that nuclear deal. as part of agreement here, the u.n. banned iran from developing missiles that could carry a nuclear warhead. "the wall street journal" reports this new missile can carry a nuclear warhead and, again, the white house now says there are strong signs iran violated the agreement. the family of a man who
12:11 pm
froze to death in a cia prison is joining two former prisoners in suing the masterminds of the united states torture program. the lawsuit targets a pair of psychologists who made millions and millions of dollars from our cia designing the torture for our prisoners. according to the lawsuit, two men spent years in secret prison in afghanistan. they say they were repeatedly beaten and waterboarded which is torture and left in extreme cold, forced to small confinement boxes. they're now free, but they say they suffered serious psychological harm. relatives of a prisoner who died say the cia never told them their fate, still has not. instead they learned it from a senate report. that report revealed a prisoner was chained nearly naked to a wall and forced to sit on the cold concrete. torture by america. the next morning, he was dead. frozen to death. the cia also blamed the lack of
12:12 pm
water and food. one of the psychologists targeted in this lawsuit defended the program saying it helps interrogators get valuable intelligence, but he also told vice news, and i quote, there were some abuses that occurred. there's a democratic debate tonight. you need to know one thing, and it's next. important than your health.

12:15 pm
lose. he or she. in this case, she is hillary clinton. she has a massive lead. she has money out the mind. she has everything anyone could ever need to get to the white house. she's the one everybody's got to beat. every democrat, every republican. and everyone except bernie sanders has been coming after her. but could tonight be the night she screws it all up? after all, she who has the most has the most to lose. look at this. secretary clinton has 45% support nationwide among democrats in a new fox news poll. that is virtually unchanged over the last month. think of it, all that her campaign has been through. think of it. you've heard it. and she's up a percentage point. and a full 20 points higher than her closest rival, bernie sanders. vice president joe biden has but 19%. that doesn't mean much because he hasn't announced a run and nobody is campaigning against him. he could have announced as
12:16 pm
latest today and qualify for the big debate tonight. a white house official tells fox news he'll be watching from home. the other democrats who will be on the stage, these people, whoever they are. they clocked in at less than 1%. that includes the former rhode island governor lincoln chafee, martin o'malley, and former virginia senator jim webb all with less than 1%, so virtually nothing. therefore, nothing to lose. ed henry is live in las vegas. the site of the debate tonight. why not empty the opposition backpack tonight? you got nothing, anyway. why not unload? >> reporter: shep, you're absolutely right about having nothing to lose. we just got our first look inside the debate hall here at the wynn las vegas. you can see this video. the order will be jim webb on the furthest on the left. bernie sanders next to him. hillary clinton right in the center. as you say, she's the clear front-runner. martin o'malley, former maryland governor to the right. then lincoln chafee, the former governor and senator of rhode
12:17 pm
island, former republican, by the way, independent, now says he's a democrat, all the way on the right of the stage. they have nothing to lose. they're all in low single digits. those three, webb, o'malley, and chafee. sanders, though, of course, is beating her, hillary clinton, in some polls in iowa. some, even a double-digit lead in new hampshire. so she clearly has to watch hillary clinton attacks from all sides tonight. and then there's the man who's not here tonight, you mentioned joe biden. the draft biden movement has a new ad out today. watch this. >> you never quit on america, and you deserve a president who will never quit on you. >> reporter: and so, remember, this is the second draft of that ad, though. the first one got very personal about the tragedies that joe biden has faced over the years and joe biden, himself, sent word that he didn't want that. he thought maybe it was exploitive. so that is a sign of one other thing you're referencing, shep,
12:18 pm
joe biden is high in some polls because he's not even in the race. once you get in, you start making mistakes, all of a sudden things change. >> you mentioned polls. other poll, frankly, it's funny because the poll that puts the hypothetical one of the republicans up against the hypothetical hillary clinton, it's funny. >> reporter: because hillary clinton is losing in some cases by double digits to some of the republicans, if you look at the graphic of the latest fox poll, whereas joe biden is beaten hypothetical republicans in matchups whether it's ben carson, donald trump, carly fiorina, jeb bush, marco rubio. why is that funny, as you say? well, because hillary clinton is in the arena right now. she's taking the shots. she's had the e-mail controversy, the clinton foundation. so you put her up against republicans, and there are going to be some people in the poll saying i don't think she's going to win, whereas joe biden has been on the sidelines not really in the arena, not taking the hits, instead he's had sort of
12:19 pm
this halo above him. his staff says tonight he'll be at the naval observatory hosting a high school reunion and then is going to watch this debate on tv. one assumes he's going to take a close look then make a gut call about whether he should get in or quietly walk off the stage. >> ed, have a fantastic time there at the wynn. >> thanks, buddy. >> all right. two more things about this debate and i promise i won't say another word. first thing, pregame and postgame, this is your spot. special report with brett tonight 6:00 eastern, 5:00 central. watch that. after the debate is over, hopefully they won't make this last for the 37 hours the last one lasted. thanks for that, jet. tonight is 8:30 to 11:00. 10:00 central time. 10:00 in oxford, change the channel. megyn is live. she's staying up late. if she has to stay up late, so do you. same with hannity. he'll be on right after megyn. if they need to go all night long, they will go all night long. the other thing you need to know, this is funniest thing of the day, trump is live tweeting
12:20 pm
it. if you're a republican, what do you do about health care? first thing you do obviously is repeal what we got. if you're a republican. but what's the next? that's what we haven't heard from the big candidates especially. we haven't heard it. now we've heard it. and it's next. at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like mute buttons equal danger. ...that sound good? not being on this phone call sounds good. it's not muted. was that you jason? it was geoffrey! it was jason. it could've been brenda. the possibility of a flare swas almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications

12:24 pm
his plan would focus on three goals. innovation, lowering costs, and, quote, giving back power to the states, unquote. oh, that's always a weird thing to hear, isn't it? think about it. jeb bush did not say how many people would be left without insurance. see, the analysts say that any proposal that cuts the affordable care act, obamacare, would increase the number of people who don't have coverage. carl live in d.c. carl, what of it? >> reporter: hi, shep. bush takes a counterargument, says the president promised lower premiums and by the administration's own estimates premiums are going to rise 2,900 bucks over the next 10 years and 27 million will still be uninsured. you're right, bush doesn't say how many he will insure. for bush this is an opportunity to explain why he wants to get rid of the affordable caring a and insert himself into tonight's debate and the same time make democrats defend obamacare, he would like to think, at his prompting. >> supports it and so does
12:25 pm
bernie sanders and other democrats and the debate tonight in las vegas will probably prove they'll be strongly supportive of this top-down driven highly democratic insurance plan that's stifling our ability to rise up because for the democrats this is what they want, this is how they roll. they like the power of deciding these things from up above. this is their essence. >> all the republican presidential candidates say they want to get rid of obamacare but the only other candidate with a detailed plan is bobby jindal who called jeb's plan obamacare-like today. he said the same thing about scott walker's plan. he did have a program but dropped out four weeks ago. >> what else is in jeb bush's plan? >> it's elaborate. he's backing a number of conservative reforms designed to lower health care costs. he would make insurance portable, take it over statelines. he'd expand health savings account, put more money into them. restore and strength individual insurance markets and employer-sponsored coverage. he'd deregulate big-time as trump likes to say the fda and
12:26 pm
hhs and do away with the mandates and tax hikes of obamacare. then he plans to invest in technology, specifically nih. if his plan becomes a topic of discussion tonight, his team is going to call it a victory, shep. >> carl cameron in washington. carl, great to see you. thank you. >> you bet. the network that once cut ties with drup tronald trump ov comments on immigrants is now welcoming him back. donald trump will return to nbc to host "saturday night live" on november the 7th. think of that. he tweeted the news out today, himself. this will be his second time to host. the first was back in '04 when he was only talking about being president instead of talking about running for it. he was still hosting with the celebrity apprentice." his "snl" appearance will come one year and one day before the 2016 presidential election. nbc, of course, ended its relationship with trump earlier this year because he said mexican immigrants are rapists and they bring drugs and crime and nbc and everything comcast did not want to be associated with donald trump.
12:27 pm
left all the money on the table. no more. we'll have a fight about the "miss america" contest, do whatever you want. no more trump on nbc. what's he doing? he's going back to nbc. good job. nice job, nbc. you made a stand. you stood for your values. tid what you must. forget the money. no more trump. except, more trump. you did a great job. we're all proud of you, nbc. we'll be watching. violence in the middle east is on the rise but there's something different about the attacks this time. what the israeli police are saying is so unusual. ambassador dennis ross, the pointman on the mideast peace process for george h.w. bush and bill clinton will be here live. just when you think all this news is depressing, there's a story of the bride who left her own wedding to try to save some people in a car crash. we approach the bottom of the hour and top of the news. morals, values, leave the money

are you paying attention to israel and the palestinians? it's getting serious. and it's much worse today than it was yesterday. today, police say two palestinian men stabbed and shot passengers on a bus in jerusalem, killed two people. cops say somebody shot and killed one attacker. people managed to take down the other one. at around the same time, police say a palestinian clidriver slad a car into a crowded bus stop in jerusalem and got out and started stabbing people at random all over the place. the cops say there were two stabbings that injured five people in a city in central israel, so there's a lot happening at one time. some analysts are saying that this could be the beginning of the third uprising against israel. there have been two big serious ones that led to sort of wars, and many are saying this is the third one but not everyone agrees. we'll have the reasons for that
12:34 pm
in a moment with one of the top experts in the middle east. i want to get to connor powell live for us in jerusalem. what's the situation tonight? >> reporter: there's a lot of theories about where this wave of violence is going, could it escalate? one thing that is clear, everyone here in jerusalem and around the region are on edge tonight. the tensions really began to rise earlier this summer after violent clashes erupted between palestinians and israelis at the mosque compound. right-wing israeli groups including a member of the israeli cabinet have pushed for access to the mosque compound which sits upon the historic jewish temple mound. it's a holy site for both jews and muslims here and much contested. the jewish crews have called for a new one there. that's erupted the anger of arab israelis and palestinians. prime minister netanyahu banned members of his cabinet to go to the compound and said he supports the status quo agreement to basically keep
12:35 pm
things the way they are are but the situation has erupted into this wave of palestinian stabbing attacks on israelis, and one thing that's really unusual, shepard, is the israeli police as late as last night were saying these are lone wolf individual attacks, these are not coordinated and they aren't tied to hamas or to a larger group and that's what is so difficult for israelis to try to stop and prevent. it adds a new dynamic to conflict here. they seem to be individual attacks, shepard. >> and that's the good news and the bad news, according to dennis ross, the former director of the state department's policy planning staff and author of a brand new book dropped today "doomed to succeed." also the u.s. pointman on the mideast peace process for george h.w. bush and bill clinton. there's the brand new book available at bookstores and amazon. this is not organized. >> that's right. the problem is in the first
12:36 pm
intafada, you actually had what was called the children of the stones and it was organized by a group, the fatah activists. they created a network throughout the territories and the west bank and gaza and they were the ones largely responsible. the second intifada which was characterized by bombings more than anything else, that was organized largely by arafat to begin with but also hamas. very structured, everything was planned. you had something that took on a life of its own when you had funerals that fed a lot more of this. but it was organized. this is not organized. here you're looking at individuals, and the ages are typically between the age of 15 and 25. >> 15 to 25. >> 15 and 25. yesterday you had ha 15-year-old stab an israeli kid that was 13. >> what's feeding this? >> a combination of things. a lot of frustration. a lot of anger. for all those basically who are, let's say, betweens ages of 18 and 25, out of school, graduated from school or gone to college, graduated, no jobs. >> no hope.
12:37 pm
>> no possibility. no sense that anything is going to change. anger at their own leadership. anger at the israelis. and also anger at the fact that no one is paying pennsylvania to t attention to the palestinians. >> the whole region. >> the saudis are focused on yemen and the war in sere wyria. the whole world is focused on syria. egypt is consumed by its own struggles. no one is paying attention to palestinians. there's a sense there's nothing to be done and there's almost a kind of lashing out to try to get attention. now, the problem is unless you make it clear that there's a terrible price for what you're doing, this thing goes on. also unless you make it clear once you stop this that there can be a change, pretty hard also to move in another direction. >> so what are we supposed to do? what can the united states do to make things better for both parties? >> the key is lets work with both sides to the extent we can. we trained a lot of the palestinian security forces. i'd like to see us organize three-way meetings between the
12:38 pm
people we have out there with the israeli security people, palestinian security people. let them talk to each other. i'm not saying it's a panacea, i'm not saying it changes things overnight. but it gets them focused on being a little bit more attentive to what the other side's concerns and needs are. that's number one. number two, do everything we can also to focus about what can you do to begin the change the realities on the ground? i hope at some point if you can calm the situation now and you can prove the realities on the ground and begin to improve the economic situation, you can have but the last thing we could do right now is to launch a big initiative. we are dealing with two sides meaning israelis and palestinians who no longer believe that peace is even a possibility. until you can begin to restore belief, it's going to be very difficult to change the circumstances. >> restore belief. i'm completely out of time. tell me quickly about the book. >> the book is about the u.s. relationship with israel from truman to today. i do a chapter on every administration, every president. what was the president's mindset, how did he view israel,
12:39 pm
how did he view the region? was there unity or division in the national security bureaucracy? what were the key assumptions that drove us? i frequently point out, because i was also a participant in four administrations, many of those assumptions were just wrong headed and we almost never learned the lessons from it. in the conclusion i talk about what are the lessons we should learn and how do we apply it from now on out and maybe the next administratiministration c advantage of that. >> sounds fascinating. good luck. i'll read it. my pleasure. executives at two of the world's biggest beer makers are probably drinking toast to each other now because their companies have agreed to merge. have you heard this? anheuser-busch, which used to be american and is not which owns budweiser as well as brands on the left agreed to pony up an absurd $106 billion and in return gets s.a.b. miller. and the brands on the right. an li analysts say the new company will roll 1/3 of the beer

college football. a major change in the s.e.c. east and a legend stepping down. south carolina coach steve spurrier resigning. not at the end of the season. right now. they are a2-4 winless in the conference. the legendary coach said that is entirely his fault and thought it best to leave now rather than hurt recruiting. he's been a head coach with duke, florida, and south carolina. in his last 25 college seasons his teams have not had a single losing season. steve spurrier spent a couple years in nfl, would like to forget that. spurrier says he's resigning, not retiring, but he doubts he'll ever head coach again. then again, who knows. steve spurrier, i'd have you. the economy may be improving but the majority of americans are not spending like they used to. that's according to a new survey out from bankrate.com which finds more than three in five americans say they cut back on spending each month. take a look at the wall. 28% now say they aren't spending because their incomes haven't
12:48 pm
changed. nearly 25% say it's because they need to save more, while 18% say it's because they're too concerned about the economy. analysts say the results of that survey could be a sign that americans won't be spending as much in the holiday season as they did last year. let's bring in vera gibbons, financial journalist who's written for "market watch," "the new york times," "reuters" and others. the youngins don't feel right they need things, like to keep it light, keep it tight. they don't need what the rest of us need. >> the millennials have $35,000 in student loan debt, this year's graduating class. they're trying to manage that. not buying homes, not saving for retirement. they're very frugal. >> the rest of us are not spending as much for a lot of weird reasons. i don't buy half after those answers. >> i think the main reason is because wages are are flat. people aren't getting kind of -- wages remain like that, people aren't getting any kind of wages. everyday costs are going up. college costs, food, education. what are people supposed to do? save as much as possible.
12:49 pm
>> of course, that's hurting the big picture. >> that's luhurting the big picture. you have retailers getting nervous about the holiday season. as long as they continue to roll out promotions, deals, people will actually spend. intentions are one thing, right? people intend to spend less, they're going to cut back. what they actually do over the holidays, we've seen impulse buys over the holiday season. we'll likely see that again. retailers have already started to roll out the promotions. >> they put everything on sale before we even get to halloween. >> that's what they're doing. walmart started the trend in august, started talking about holiday sales. what's going to be hot, what's going to sell, what people should buy. >> are there sales on amazon, too? >> that's where it starts. holiday sales are are expected e up regardless. not as good as last year. above the ten-year average. retail says it's still going to be up. i think that's because gas prices are down, the narcotic is market is down. people have discretionary money. >> the message is weird. if you want to help, go spend the money you don't have. i don't like it. >> i don't like it, either.
12:50 pm
