8:00 am
martha: so there we have it on a monday morning, and we wait for the benghazi hearing on thursday which is going to be probably the big itself event over the course of this week. lots to watch. have a good monday, everybody. bill: that's right. martha: see you later. ♪ ♪ jenna: and the gop race for the white house getting even more heated as donald trump once again goes after jeb bush's brother about the 9/11 attacks. hello, everybody, i'm jenna lee. jon: and i'm jon scott. donald trump blasting jeb bush's claims that his brother, quote, kept us safe in the aftermath of 9/11. he claims things would have been very different if he had been in charge. governor bush says trump's comments show a lack of seriousness, but trump is not backing down. >> jeb said we were safe with my brother, we were safe.
8:01 am
well, the world trade center just fell down. now, am i trying to blame him? i'm not blaming anybody, but the world trade center came down. so when he were safe, that's not safe. we lost 3,000 people. it was one of, probably the greatest catastrophe ever in this country if you think about it, right? jon: joining us now is bret baier, the anchor of "special report." to be fair to jeb bush, i think his point about him keeping us safe, meaning george w. bush, was intended to start at the moment the 9/11 attacks brought down the world trade center. i guess to donald trump's way of thinking, maybe that distinction doesn't exactly matter, bret. >> well, right, jon. good morning. i think to be fair to donald trump, he answered a question by bloomberg on friday that started this whole thing, then he reiterated it, doubled down on fox news sunday and then said it again in a different way on "fox & friends" this morning. he has definitely stirred this
8:02 am
up, talking about 9/11 happening under george w. bush and, therefore, the country wasn't safe. but also adding that he doesn't think it would happen under a president trump because of his strict immigration policies. i think looking back post-9/11 to a pre-9/11 world with president obama -- president trump's immigration policies is a little tough to work out fact check wise. 16 of the 19 hijackers had legal visas to be here and, obviously, there were a whole bunch of problems, and the 9/11 commission laid those out before president bush took office. yet it is stirring up a lo controversy and thereby a lot of attention. and as we've seen a lot of times with donald trump, sometimes these things only make his numbers go up. jon: right. he said, regarding immigration, he said i believe if i were running things, i doubt those families, i doubt those people would have been in the country.
8:03 am
but as is often the case, there are not a lot of specifics about how he would have accomplished that. >> right. i mean, he points to he would have been tougher on visas, allowing people in, and he would have definitely been tougher on people here illegally. and as i mentioned, 16 of the 19 hijackers were here on legal visas. now, you know, fighting these battles pre-9/11 about the 9/11 attacks kind of an interesting ploy politically, if it is that, and he has obviously continued that as he's been questioned about it. jeb bush has drawn out, thereby defending his brother, thereby connecting him to his brother again, and while he's saying that donald trump is a reality tv star in a reality tv foreign policy, he's still there out talking about george w. bush. jon: all right.
8:04 am
let me ask you about this issue. ed henry just put it out in this fox news alert that he's got three solid sources who say that vice president biden is likely to run. there is some question about the timing that he would make his announcement, but according to ed henry, vice president biden is likely to get boo this race for -- into this race for president. i'm sure you're hearing some things in washington as well, bret, but the question has always been when would the vice president say he's in? he's under a lot of pressure from democratic party leaders if he's going to get in to get in sooner rather than later. >> well, that's right. and there has been this perception that he is going to run here in washington. the outreach to donors, the outreach to party leaders, state party leaders. the thought was perhaps he's going to get in at the jefferson jackson dinner in iowa on saturday night, but there's also another thought that -- and this
8:05 am
is, again, all mapping things out -- hillary clinton did well by all accounts in the democratic debate. it is seen that perhaps she's going to do well as she has before in the benghazi testimony. we don't know that yet, but it happens thursday. and if she does well in those two things, where is the angle for vice president biden? the thought was that perhaps he gets in before she testifies on thursday, and there's some reporting out there that he might be getting in within the next 48 hours. we can't confirm that, but ed's reporting is that three sources saying he is going to get in very likely and probably in the next couple of days. jon: you mentioned hillary clinton's testimony later this week, i think on thursday, in front of the benghazi committee. the partisan tensions are really getting thick on that committee. trey gowdy, the chairman of the committee, is even telling his fellow republicans -- those who are not on the committee he says should just shut up about things that you don't know anything
8:06 am
about. that refersing to leaks from -- referring to leaks from some republicans who say that the committee's work is mostly about tearing down hillary clinton. have you ever seen a committee this tense, this divided, bret? >> listen, there's always politics involved in committee work. very rarely is there this unified effort to get to a, especially when you're talking about a presidential candidate in the middle of the crosshairs here in this testimony. i think that trey gowdy is trying to keep this substantive, but all that has been said with kevin mccarthy and another republican and this whistleblower, gowdy denies that, but it still set the preamble for this committee hearing. so the republicans' bar is going to be pretty high to be fair and substantive and not look like they're attacking hillary clinton, but to remember that since her last testimony this entire private e-mail server and
8:07 am
hundreds of e-mails about benghazi and libya have come out. they weren't available before. jon: right. >> so how the republicans handle this thursday will be interesting to see. jon: well, and that is interesting because there's been so much criticism of the committee, suggesting that it's really become an inquisition about hillary clinton's e-mail practices. but as you point out, nobody knew about those practices until this committee was formed. >> and, jon, listen, there were a whole batch of e-mails that had never seen the light of day that just were transferred to the committee within the past month. i mean, we're talking about new e-mails dealing with benghazi and libya. so for all of this talk about this is all about e-mails, well, in part it is about e-mails because some of those e-mails were never nope in the seven -- known in the seven previous committee hearings that dealt with benghazi. we'll see how they handle it, but the bar will be high for republicans since all of this political back and forth before
8:08 am
the committee hearing thursday. jon: the information lies in the e-mails and, certainly, there are ready attack lines or ready retort lines from hillary clinton that the republicans have already given her. be fascinating to watch. i'm sure you'll be talking about it tonight on "special report." bret baier, thank you. jenna: right now israel on alert as terror attacks become a near-daily occurrence. the latest at a central bus station in the southern part of the country, and it's showing how the lone wolf style violence is spreading beyond jerusalem. conor powell is live in israel with more for us tonight. >> reporter: jenna, police say an arab-israeli man opened fire in a bus station sunday night killing an israeli soldier and wounding at least 11 people. now, security officials there killed the assailant but also shot a refugee from the african country of eritrea. video shows a mob kicking the injured man, the mob believed he was one of the attackers, and they tried to subdue him. israeli officials opening an
8:09 am
investigation into that incident as well. now, in recent days israel has introduced a series of new security measures trying to combat the growing violence here that has really lasted about three weeks or so, erecting dozens of checkpoints in the primarily palestinian east jerusalem areas and placing large concrete walls between arab and israeli neighborhoods. secretary of state john kerry is due to arrive in the region sometime this week to meet with israeli and palestinian leaders to talk about the violence, to try to find a solution. france has actually floated a u.n. proposal to place international observers at the mosque compound. violence erupted about a month ago as jewish groups pushed for more access at this holiest site known as the temple mount. the effort there by the jewish groups enraging palestinians, setting off the violence that has now lasted about a month. both u.s. and israel apparently rejecting this french proposal, but right now secretary kerry is coming to the region.
8:10 am
what he will do, jenna, to actually ease tensions, what plan he comes with, it's really not clear. there aren't a whole lot of plans in terms of the international community. he's hoping to get some type of dialogue between israeli and palestinian leaders. security coordination duds continue between the -- does continue between the palestinian authority and israeli officials, but that hasn't stopped, as you described it, these lone wolf attacks from occurring. that is what is really troubling the security personnel here in israel, is that it doesn't appear these attacks are all connected, but they are primarily located and stem from palestinians living in eastern jerusalem. jenna: certainly understand the concern. more on this as we get it, conor, thank you. jon: one of the oldest questions in the world, who can you trust? online retailer amazon is cracking down on fake reviewers. the seattle-based company filing a lawsuit against more than a thousand people accused of misleading buyers by selling fake product reviews.
8:11 am
the problem, amazon doesn't actually know who these people are, so the lawsuit lists them all as john doe. jo ling kent, we do know her, she's from fox business network, and she joins us live from new york city with the latest. >> reporter: amazon is launching an offensive against a thousand people they don't know, the e-commerce giant filed a lawsuit in seattle court trying to fight these fake reviews. and what's happened is more than a thousand anonymous defendants are at stake here. they allegedly offer counterfeit reviews of amazon products on the site cyber. it's a platform filled with listings for odd jobs. some promise to write five-star reviews for as little as $5. this violates amazon's terms of use. cyber issued a statement saying it only allows verifiable reviews to be posted, but amazon hired an investigator to figure out the fake reviewers' tactics and strategies.
8:12 am
amazon says many of the defendants use a variety of accounts and ip addresses to stay anonymous in this situation, and this comes after amazon sued several other web sites back in april regarding the same issue. this lawsuit, amazon tell us, is just the next step in trying to figure out this problem. just so you know, since 1995 when amazon launched, there's been more than 100 million product reviews. a lot of people rely on them. amazon has an entire dedicated team to fight fake reviews, and they're going another step further, jon, jenna. jon: hundred million reviews at $5 a pop if any of them -- >> reporter: it's a lot of money. jon: half a billion bucks. jo ling kent, thank you. jenna: good on the math, jon, on a monday morning. jon: pretty good there, huh? [laughter] all up here. jenna: that's a good business decision. we'll see what happens next on that. well, a man facing murder charges for a case that's been cold for more than 30 years. the suspect's bizarre actions

armed and dangerous, they are believed to be traveling in a dark suv. and a man has been charged with the murder of a 13-year-old girl more than 30 years later. jose ferrer rah was arrested after he called a tv station and gave troubling details of that cold case. carrie ann went missing in 18982. -- 1982. her body was found buried 17 months later. jenna: well, the federal government is expected to unveil a plan that would require people to register their drones, and this comes after a number of recent reports of the unmanned aircrafts coming too close to airplanes and even preventing air crews from fighting massive wildfires. doug mckelway's live in washington with more on what we're learning today. >> reporter: this plan to require the registration of drones or uass is the result of a huge uptick in uas incursions in congested air space in recent months. there have been many instances of commercial pilots reporting sightings or near misses with drones. commercial drone operators are
8:18 am
already required to maintain certain flight restrictions, and the faa has tried to send a get-tough message to those who violate the rules. earlier the month, for example, a stiff $1.9 million fine against a chicago company which provides aerial video to clients. the faa said, quote: sky pan conducted 65 unauthorized operations in some of the most congested air space in heavily populated cities. sky pan has vigorously denied the accusation, but with drone sales going through the roof, the slow pace of the regulatory process has been hard-pressed to keep pace. the faa has missed a september deadline for more stringent uas regulations. >> not later than september 30th, 2015, that's the deadline we mutt in there. -- put in there. is that deadline going to be made? >> you certainly won't have full integration -- >> but the deadline is not going to be met? >> no.

8:24 am
-and-a-half new information now on a major development in the war on terror. a military airstrike took out an al-qaeda strategist in syria, he was a member of the corazon group which our national intelligence director once said posed as big of a threat to the homeland as isis. joining us now, senior editor of the longmore journal which we encourage everybody to read. tom, great to talk to you about this topic because you've been talking about not taking our eye off al-qaeda when the focus is on isis. how big of a deal is it that this guy is dead? >> well, i think this guy was a big deal within al-qaeda, he was groomed for leadership. he's a third cousin or was a third cousin of osama bin laden, so this is somebody they trusted him, and he could bring in the big bucks from donors because of those familial ties. it's a big deal he's gone. i would caution here the u.s.
8:25 am
has been very good at killing individual al-qaeda commanders and leaders. we've been terrible, unfortunately, at coming up with a strategy to contain al-qaeda's guerrilla army, and that's really the problem here. while this is a great kill for the u.s. and it's great he's been taken out, al-qaeda still has a guerrilla army in syria totaling more than 10,000 fighters easily, and there's no strategy to combat that army. jenna: we hear about russia and syria, assad and syria, isis and syria, we don't hear a lot about al-qaeda. why? >> there's really a skew or bias in the reporting, i think. i've said over and over again everybody's obsessed with isis. remember the train and equip program from the pentagon was going to be capable of combating isis, and it wasn't isis that led to that program being shuttered, it was al-qaeda. on a couple of occasions now beginning in july, the u.s. sent rebel forces into syria. they were immediately detained, kidnapped, killed, harassed by al-qaeda, not isis. and the same thing happened in september where the u.s. sent rebel forces into syria, and
8:26 am
they were immediately harassed by al-qaeda. they actually ended up giving up part of their u.s. taxpayer-funded equipment and ammunition to al-qaeda. the bottom line is al-qaeda has a very different strategy for waging its war and inculcating itself in these insurgencies. they're not as loud or don't advertise themselves quite the way isis does, but they're still just as deadly and, in fact, in some places more deadly. -and-a-half what is their goal in syria? >> the same goal isis has, they want to build an emirates or islamic state in syria. they think that's a long-term prospect, though, and they have good reasons for that. they would say to isis, in fact, they've said to isis you're not going to get away with building an islamic state that's going to stay in the long term given all the nations that you have to fight to do that. so let's have a longer-term strategy. that's what al-qaeda's doing right now in multiple places around the globe. jenna: one of the things you point out is there is a connection between this corazon group as it's been described,
8:27 am
although as you point out al-qaeda is al-qaeda is al-qaeda. >> right. jenna: apparently, they were in iran before going into syria? what's the connection there? especially in light of this nuclear deal. >> this is one of the strangest relationships in all of this. actually, two or three of the top guys who led this group for al-qaeda in syria previously ran the iran-based network for al-qaeda. and this is a network that exists on iranian soil, it's based in tehran and a couple other cities inside iran. and according to the obama administration itself, this network exists under a deal or an agreement between the iranian regime and al-qaeda's senior leadership. of. jenna: and this is now, tom, right? right now as we speak? >> in fact, last year the treasury and state departments once again came out and said that some of the top guys in this network are inside iran and leading this network. so this is, as far as we know, existing right now. going back to july 2011, the obama administration has repeatedly said this network exists and that it exists under an agreement between the iranian regime and al-qaeda. jenna: we've got to keep that in
8:28 am
mind as we're going through all of this, where the support is coming from. just quickly, tom, what is our strategy as you see it to continue to confront al-qaeda? is it purely the drone program and taking out these top leaders? and how effective is that? >> there is no strategy for combating al-qaeda. the -- it's really purely tactical at this point. it has to do with drone strikes and other commando operations to take out select, known al-qaeda leaders. meanwhile, there is no strategy to combat its guerrilla army. jenna: something for us to all think about. if someone's boss is taken off a company, does the company collapse? usually it doesn't. >> usually not. jenna: interesting questions to raise. tom, always great to see you and rely on your expertise. thank you so much. >> thanks, jen that. jon: well, he managed to avoid police for nearly 40 years, even after a very popular movie was made about the notorious theft. but now the suspect behind the heist made popular in the movie "good fellas" is due in court.

8:33 am
jenna: a suspect in the movie "goodfellas" in court today. it centered around the robbery at kennedy airport that netted $6 million. laura ingle is live from brooklyn federal court. reporter: opening statement have been presented to jurors from both sides in this case. prosecutors working to paint vincent asaro as a man motivated by money and power and worked with the bonaro crime family. the prosecutor said they will hear from guys who committed crimes and they are only here to save themselves. this trial has been years in the making. prosecutors have worked for
8:34 am
decades to gather enough evidence against asaro to bring him in for his alleged role in the lufthansa heist. his cousin coaxed him into spilling details about the heist. it's been considered the largest cash theft in history. the robbery was the inspiration for the 1990 movie "goodfellas." asaro's cousin is expected to be a witness for the prosecution in addition to crime family members. but many of the witnesses disappeared, were killed or died. one thing we heard early on was the murder charges against aa so would not be brought up. but this morning prosecutors just mentioned that in their opening statements as they begin
8:35 am
their work of painting asaro as a man who lived a life of crime. if he's convicted in this case he would get life in prison. and web he's 80 years old. jenna: laura, thank you. jon: tensions are rising over the been goodsy committee days before hillary clinton is scheduled to testify. some critic accuse the committee of going after clinton instead of trying to get to the facts that killed our libyan ambassador. >> i told my colleagues and friends to shut up talking about things you don't know anything about. unless you are on the committee you don't know what facts we have found. we found new facts that have nothing to do with her. i get people don't want to talk about that.
8:36 am
but the 7 members of my committee are much more focused on the four dead americans than we are on anyone's presidential aspirations. onwere alan colmes and tammy bruce, welcome. it was a fiery sunday on the morning chat shows. trey gowdy defending his work. elijah cummings the ranking member from the democratic side sent out a blistering letter saying this all about politics. reporter: cummings is blaming gowdy for redacting information to make her look bad. gowdy is saying the executive branch did the. democrats are saying he did it. seven committees have exonerated hillary clinton.
8:37 am
they have met for 17 months. they had a wine club and gun-buying club and i think they are clobbering hillary clinton over the head. that seems to be their focus contrary to what gowdy said on the sunday morning talk show. >>'s so strange. i completely disagree. there is one person who knows exactly what the committee will find and that's hillary clinton. and she has to work to discredit that committee because she knows what the end result will be. maybe obama also knows what the end result will be. but if this has nothing to do about anything, then hillary has nothing to worry about. but she has to make it about her, even though they had 70 other witnesses. they just got christopher stevens emails. this is something the americans remember what we are dealing with here. it's goulish that she need to
8:38 am
make it about her. it's craven that she is condemning it. but stop having this fight on the air. if he's going to could be dem other gop members it tells you the importance of why boehner had to resign. there is clearly an indication of chaos in the environment. >> they called huma abedin last week. >> i guess it means it's such a hit job he's going to day home and not do anything. there is investigators to ask those questions. >> two republicans showed up. jon: the criticism has been leveled at the committee for focusing exclusively on hillary clinton's emails. you didn't know hillary clinton had this private email server until this committee convened.
8:39 am
>> is that private system illegal? did she break the law? seven committees said no wrongdoing b and this committee spent $.5 million of taxpayer money. >> we are going to find out when the f.b.i. tells us what they are finding. so we have to remember it's not just the benghazi committee. those are good questions. was it illegal? the foib will have an answer and we'll get that answer. hillary's problems are beyond the benghazi committee and as fox is reporting, joe biden just might get in, those problems increased. jon: hi are you spent more than that on hillary care. >> thanks to clinton we have healthcare to millions of americans that we didn't have. >> i can hear from the outside all of fox news watchers
8:40 am
laughing. i could actually hear it. jon: the fight between trey gowdy and elijah cummings. one of the things gowdy said, i applaud you for being able to get from this administration information on a sunday in 45 minute that our committee has beening for for some week now. >> i think that did happen. clearly cummings will have access. this is partisan brought on by hillary and the democrats. the fella who was fired is a hillary supporter. there will be politic in the framework. but the bottom line is we have four dead americans. the on people who don't want to find answers are the ones who blamed a u tube video on it. we all deserve an answer.
8:41 am
>> we had congress pan pompayo on and when asked when we would get answers he said that's a good question. >> they are stonewalling from the white house and stonewalling for hillary. will huma and hillary be under oath? jon: she said she is eager to testify. jenna: a man on a flight to ireland reportedly bites another passenger then collapses. what investigators say could have caused this. a love triangle becomes a messy family affair when a mother asked her daughter to help commit a murder.
8:42 am
8:43 am
8:44 am
jon: flying on the big carriers always brings tal challenges. investigators are look into the
8:45 am
death of a man from portugal to dublin. he was 48 years old from brazil. but before he collapsed he reportedly bit another passenger. police in ireland also arrested the woman he was traveling with. she is suspected of carrying amphetamine powder. people on the flight say the man was make sound of seizure before he collapsed. jenna: investigators i a woman recruited her 13-year-old daughter and 18-year-old boyfriend to kill her husband and his former lover. the teenagers are also facing charges here. sometimes you watch lifetime movies, how do they get the material for this.
8:46 am
you read a case like this and you see, crazy stuff like this happens. but the case against her is pretty strong. she claims her husband committed murder-suicide but the police have some remarkable evidence. >> the shells they found inside of his body were from a different type of gun than the begun placed beside his body. she was text messages with the 18-year-old boyfriend and her 13-year-old daughter about the fact they killed somebody. they are not the smartest criminals you have ever seen and they are going to have a huge number of things to overcome this. jenna: what about the 13-year-old? will she be tried as an adult? >> she'll be tried as a juvenile. she was better off being raised by wolves.
8:47 am
she has an 18-year-old boyfriend, she is 1. that's illegal. her parent were involved in the love triangle under their own roof. jenna: it was arranged until there was a falling out between the women. >> mom recruits her to kill her own father because she has been outed? >> one wonders what is the defense for the mother? >> if they can get the text messages out, that would be matter of how did they obtain them. did they have the right to probable cause, then arguably the rest is circumstantial. they don't have the murder weapon. what was placed next to the body was not the murder weapon.
8:48 am
they can say all you have is circumstantial evidence. without the text messages maybe she has a shot. >> this is a case we talked about last week and i'm sure viewers would recognize this. jenna: the woman who took her nephew to court over a broken wrist. she went on today the show and offered up an explanation about her case. take a listen to this. >> this was simply a case of formality within the insurance claim. i never wanted to sue sean. but i had -- as i understand tonight connecticut it's not possible to name an insurance company in a suit of a homeowner's insurance case. an individual has to be named. in this case because sean and i have this fall together, i was
8:49 am
