12:00 pm
thank you for writing of let's see. do you guys dress up for halloween? no? bet your kids do. here is shep. >> to troops on the ground in syria. that would be a profound mistake that's what isis wants. we will not do it. that's been the story from the president of the united states for years. today boots on the ground. of course, with russia operating inside syria, that's thens that push us deeper into our nonproxy war proxy war with moscow. where is the pentagon? and where is the president? plus, the republican candidates revolt. some complaint busy it the debates. campaigns are sending representatives for sitdown in washington ask the republican national committee, you're not invited. some of the demands. let's get to it.ñi
12:01 pm
what does isis want? besides its own state in the iraq? what does isis really want? it wants american boots on the ground. it wants to fight us. how do we know that? they told us. in arabic from an audio message in september a spokesman said, and i quote, mobilize your forces, roar with thunder, threaten whom you want. plot, arm your troops, prepare yourselves, strike, kill, and destroy us. this will not avail you. you will be defeated. and importantly, are america and its allies from amongst the crusaders and the athiests unable to come down to the ground? we're able but we know better. we know better than too be drawn into a civil war infiltrated by the savages who want to return the planet to the middle ages. we know better. the head of the international center for the study of radicalization in london said september last year, and i quote, as soon as there are
12:02 pm
winch boots on the ground it becomes the old narrative of the west versus islam, and they can claim they're fighting the occupation. they are trying to suck us in. trying but the president won't let it happen. he has said so over and over again. >> this will not be another iraq or afghanistan. there would be no american boots on the ground. >> i will not put american boots on the ground in syria. >> we will not be placing u.s. ground troops to try to control the areas that are part of the conflict in syria. >> the notion that the united states should be putting boots on the ground, i think would be a profound mistake, and i want to be very clear and very explicit. >> profound mistake. no boots on the ground. the one thing about the which there has been no ambiguity at all. we trained the mod recall rebels in syria,çó lend air support, ad
12:03 pm
anyone predicted with history as their guide that wouldn't work. now what the president would not, could not let happen, what isis begged to happen, is happening, as josh earnest informed us hours ago. but they're not combat troops. >> the president has been quite clear about the fact that they have a -- they do not have a combat mission. they have a training, advising and assist mission that does mean that our men and women in uniform will be in harm's way and will be taking risks and they're in a dangerous part of the world and means owe them a debt of gratitudes. >> but they're not combat troops, just like the soldier last week was not in combat. .master sergeant joshua wheeler is no less dead. what did we learn? we're sending dozen of special ops forces in syria and iraq. no details. nothing from the pentagon. except, quotes from nameless, faceless officials who won't go on the roared, and nothing at all from the president.
12:04 pm
he found the cameras very well last year and the year before to tell us repeatedly no boots on the ground. now that he changes his mind he sends josh earnest out to tell us almost nothing, except this won't be a game-changer, as we help local opposition fighters battle isis that syria can't be solved militarily ever. yet in goes the military on the ground, just as isis wants. what are the specifics? when does the engagement end? nothing on any of that. wait, is it legal? judge napolitano says no. it's noble to try to help suffering and theñi dying. noble. but absolutely illegal, and where is the congress? congress is supposed to authorize military action, but it will not. it sits on the sidelines, sitting on its hands, refute fusing to get in the met of the war. senator mccain said predictably it's not enough. but there won't be a vote as required by the constitution. there won't because of politics. most members don't want to be on the roared on this. they'll complain mitely but won't do their duty to us, he
12:05 pm
people ex-engage in a debate and take a vote and an honest member will tell you that. look at what hillary clinton is dealing with because of her vote on the war. it won't happen again, not to this group. so today no details. nothing from the pentagon. nothing from our elected representatives in congress. nothing from the president in go the troop with the admission it's a bad idea, that isis wants it, it went work, and there's no military solution to the problem. there will be more troops later? maybe, for our not proxy war proxy war with russian? but we'd have to quote somebody, and we know what a quote is worth. a quote like no boots on the ground in syria. rich edson is at the white house. >> good afternoon, the president informing the iraqi prime minister today about this, saying that the u.s. will intensify elements of its strategy and that the coalition strategy against isis would be intensified' and we're now just hearing from the u.s. defense officials who are saying they will arrived rearview mirror
12:06 pm
mirror --ll remain a period of weeks, not months but no joint operations and the president decided on the shift in strategy when he met at the pentagon in july. the white house claims there's no shift? tragedy and the administration is saying there's still a maintenance of the strategy that the u.s. always had in syria. >> the fact is our strategy in syria hasn't changed. the core of our military strategy inside of syria is to build up the capacity of local forces, to take the fight to isil on the ground in their own country. there are variety of ways the united states and coalition patter ins. offer support to local forces. >> the white house is also saying the administration is deploys n 1-s and f-15s in in turkey. >> and nothing from congress. knock. >> a little about what you heard from senator mccain. you'll get that on the right. the president is not doing enough. some democrats are being democrat. a democrat from virginia saying it's time for the administration
12:07 pm
to detail to the american people a comprehensive strategy to bring down the conflict in iraq and sir use which are metastasizing to a peaceful end. he adds it's time for congress to do its most solemn job to debate and declare war on this. earnest says they have put out a proposal to congress. congress hasn't passed anything yet. >> congress won't do anything, rich, edson, thank you. if they were hon -- they already said we're not having a vote. the last leadership said there's no chance this will come up. there is a chance now? john busse from "the wall street journal." mission creep? >> there's a danger of that and evidence of that. this feels like the late 1950s, 1960s in vietnam. where there were a couple hundred in the late '50s -- >> advisers. >> right, 3,000 a year later and 50,000 by the end of the 1960s
12:08 pm
prepare president changed his mind. i looks like, as a result of circumstances changing on theground. russia's intervention. in a big way. iran's increasing intervention in a big way. remember, there's negotiations going on in vienna between these parties on what to do in syria. and so the united states now has more skin the game and is showing itself as more forceful and that also likely increases its voting heft in vienna. >> the negotiations on the ground regarding what to do with syria, include assad as continuing to lead? >> at least in a transition period. >> for how long? >> something the u.s. government said was absolutely not going to happen. >> just like boots on the ground. >> a deal breaker to have assad in any kind of role. looks as if that's being put on the table as one negotiating concession on the part of the united states if it gets what it wants regarding isis. the other thing that's happening here is the u.s. needs to protect its interests in syria.
12:09 pm
it's going to do so with the a- 10 attack planes. that's pretty good escalation. the pentagon wants apaches now in iraq. >> helicopters. >> the white house hasn't said yes or no. >> isis has surface to air. >> the united states is talk bath special ops coordination with the iraqi military in iraq. so, there's a lot of things happening incrementally that do suggest mission creep. >> the people who represent us will not weigh in on this matter. the president will not come to the microphone on this matter. what will the american people do, god forebed one of our special force not in combat role end up in an isis snuff video and his head chopped off. i wonder if anybody thought about that. >> i think the white house has been very clear today that these are not combat troops but they'll be in danger, and that bad things can happen, as we saw
12:10 pm
this trooper get killed last week. one thing that's also happening here you have to think that if american troops are in these zones now, working with what the united states considers its allies on the ground, that the russians have to be more careful about what they bomb and that might be one of the intents on the part of the united states, to say, look, just as in south korea we have troops close to the border. there's a line here you can't cross any longer because the last thing you want to do russia, is being in the position of injuring a u.s. troop. >> nato supreme commander says the west should not trust russia, should not work russia and the nato head said, and i quote, russia is not a partner, unquote. jennifer griffin at the pentagon where the allied commander spoke. what else did he say? >> that's exactly what i asked him. whether from his perch as the top nato commander in europe, whether he sees russia as a partner. >> so, right knew i do not see them as a partner.
12:11 pm
i would ask you to grade their paper across the last 18 months. >> general's clear disdain for russia's actions stands in stark contrast to diplomatic outreach being made by secretary of state john kerry to russian diplomas to solve the crisis in syria. >> the united states position in syria has that changed. sergei lavrov and the foreign minimummer and i and others agree to disagree. >> here tee pentagon, general breedlove add that u.s. intelligence shifted after the cold war, leaving us blind to what the russians were doing. >> i have identified that we have a lack of ability to see into russia, especially at the operational and tactical level. remember that over the last two decades, we have been trying to make a partner out of russia. >> he says that is changing now,
12:12 pm
and the u.s. intelligence community is shifting gears back to focusing on russia as a foe. >> did he have any new details on the story you brokeñi about russian cargo planes bringing iranian weapons into syria? >> no. but the state department was asked about it yesterday, and said it investigating whether the russians have been helping iran deliver weapons to syria in breach of u.n. security council resolutions. two aleutian 76 russian cargo flights day from tehran for ten days, planes like those on the tarmac of the russian air base in syria in early october. >> arms exports from iran are prohibited under u.n. security council resolution 1747 and we'll be looking into the press reports, and if russia is found to be facilitating the transfers we'll raise that in the appropriate channels both bilaterally and the u.n. >> i'm told byñr western
12:13 pm
intelligence sources those cargo flights, ferrying iranian weapons, are continuing into syria. >> jennifer griffin at the pentagon. so we have a new war, or at least we admitted we have a new war. i mentioned judge napolitano who says it's illegal. this action and others that preceded it is illegal. there's no congress in the middle. we'll speak with an expert on the constitutional law. a scholar about the president's war powers and how he is justifying military action against isis. justifying it but not talking about it. you come to the microphones apparently when the word is, we're not sending anyone in. but when you send them in, you send josh earnest, and that's where we are today. we'll be right back. ♪song: "that's life" ♪song: "that's life"

the president's war powers, for all its criticism of the bush administration, the obama administration is relying on the exact same authorization for the use of military force that was signed into law on september 18th, 2001. that was meant for president bush to go after al qaeda. al qaeda which took the buildings down in hit the pentagon and shankesville. he sent troops into afghanistan, and then into iraq. president obama's lawyers argue the law still works to fight the new enemy, the islamic state, and to fight them in a new place in syria. with is news is professor of law at washington college of law.
12:17 pm
is this legal? >> well, shep, think that's a great question. it really boils down to what you just teed up, which does this 14-year-old statute, the authorization for the use of military force, really apply to isis? the obama administration has been arguing for 14 months it does, and all the while, as you noted, congress has done nothing, so i think it's a close dahl but i think congress has an obligation to step up and say something if it's not. >> you think it's a close call that the congress of the united states should step in and have a debate and authorize one way or our troops are sent to war? that's a close call, professor? >> no, don't it's a close call that congress should step in. one thing on which everyone agrees is is that it would be better if congress were to step inch the question is what happens if congress doesn't step in it? hasn't yet. i think that's where the legal argument is closer because it turns on whether we really do accept the notion that isis is basically a successor to
12:18 pm
al qaeda and taste, therefore, covered by the statute. i completely agree that we would all be better off if congress were to actually step in and pass a new statute and update the law to adjust for the threat we face today. the hard question is what happens until and unless congress does that. so far we have seen no indication that congress has any interest in accepting that responsibility. >> you can do illegal things as long as you want unless and until somebody catches you, and in this case unless and until somebody of standing comes to a court of record and calls you out on it. who has standing? who could do such a thing? >> it's unusual to find anyone in this case who will have standing, perhaps a service member who is worried about being deployed unlawfully, but shep, i have to tell you, if we look at the precedence from the vietnam war, the precedence from the first gulf war in the early 19 anothers the courts are not going step in, in this kind of fact pattern, when you have congress having passed at least one statute, sort of of point,
12:19 pm
congress appropriating money for this use of force. congress authorizing the deployment of troops for training and equipping. i think from the court's perspective, that's not nearly enough to rates the kinds of separation of powers problem that you and i might think exists. that's why this is about the politics, which is why congress has to step back in and not the law. >> but congress only has to step back in if congress' constituents stand up and demand they do so. if they demand their representatives get up in front of the nation and make a debate. here are the reasons why this is in united states national interest. the reasons this is an imperative for our nation to send our young men and women into harm's way, and here their reasons its. noment don't the american people dedeserve that debate? i isn't that what the founding fathers say we defer. >> absolutely. democrats and republicans, ins, folks should want that debate to happen. the only people in this country who seem completely dissed? that conversation are the 535
12:20 pm
elected representatives on capitol hill and that's shirking their constitutional responsibilities that gives president obama and his successors thexd ability to use war powernessçó the ways foundes would have been nervous about. we want the democratic buy-in. without congress stepping to the plate we've have more' more drift where presidents, rely on older and let apt statutes. >> steve, washington college of law, thank you. >> thank you, shep. >> the prone for it was the founding fathers said the reason was very similar to what you might hear from one? the greatest generation, like when my father tells me what it was like when his mother and his sister and everyone else got involved in the fight, when everyone on every street was involved in in some way. america was all in. and that is why when we sent our troops to die, everyone knew it was the right thing to do.
12:21 pm
congress had said it's the right th[ne to do. it must happen. everyone was in today there's not a face on this. the president's face, the pentagon's face, the congress' face. they're all absent. if you love shrimp like i love shrimp, come to red lobster's endless shrimp... ...for as much as you want, any way you want it... sweet, buttery, and creamy. like new pineapple habanero coconut shrimp bites... ...and teriyaki grilled shrimp. and yeah, it's endless, but it won't last forever.

12:26 pm
skeptical about whether they'll actually be deported. all 50 states will receive inmates. florida, texas, and illinois will get the most. convicts will also go to d.c., puerto rico, guam, and the u.s. virgin islands. the average sentence of those being released was reduced by two years, and an additional 8500 prisoners are set to be released over the next year, and 26% of the inmates who applied to be released were denied by judges. >> nonviolent, mostly drug people. yet the critics are assaulting there could be a big rise in crime. >> and the department of justice says the public safety is their priority number one, and that all of the released inmates underwent a public safety assess. that includes how they behaved while they were actually in prison, but many law enforcement agencies believe this does nothing but undo the work they have already done. and they remind us that drugs and drug offenders often lead to

violent crime. this sheriff's of martin county are florida, one of the states getting the most inmates, says every single inmate will pose a threat to his deputies and his citizens, other agencies are worried about turning future drug offender cases over to the feds fearing they will simply kick them free. >> trace, thank you. five students in and a teacher are hurt after a fire broke out at a high school chemistry classroom. that is according to a statement from woodson high school in northern virginia. happened this morning. officials air lifted two kids to the burn center with serious injuries. they're expected to survive. the school also evacuated students to a football field. as hazmat teams worked to clear the building. the school's principal confirmed it was chemical fire but we don't know exactly how it started. g.o.p. candidates plotting a sort of revolt against their own party's bosses. think this is about the media and cnbc? maybe but it's really about reince priebus. what sources are telling fox

12:38 pm
candidates but the public at large here. >> it's a point that as oft been made but there's a birth question now. if it's clear what they want to do is make the questions easier, make the immediate mead ya a little afraid, that served them well. i i were a candidate identity want that. but they can't have that. >> they have to explain their tax plan. i don't think anybody did the other night. >> no, the can't. >> they should be forced to answer questions about what they're reallyxd going to do abt the deficit. thus, we did not hear enough of those substantive kinds of questions and cnbc had two hours to ask them. >> week after next, neil cavuto and maria can ask to the questions and i'm looking forward to answer because americans deserve answers. all americans agree. what do you can about jeb bush, has a new slogan "jeb can fix it" but there nor smiles in camp bush. >> there are not. every campaign goes through difficult times. the truth of the matter is, all campaigns have to retract,
