they were not known to french intelligence. the cars used by the attackers were represent bid a french citizen in belgium prior to the attack. a syrian passport was found outside the football stadium. and the greek government said one of the attackers was a syrian refugee who passed through greece on october 3. all seven attackers wore suicide bomb vests. they also used ak 47 rifles according to the french prosecutor. >> three individuals carrying military weapons got out. first into the hall and opened fire while the concert was going on. the terrorists mentioned syria and iraq during negotiations. >> to what impact, if any, will the attack have on the u.s. and nato military strategy against isis in syria and iraq? the u.s. carried out more than 7,000 air strikes against isis targets. the french were the first nato ally to join the u.s. in bombing aice a year ago and recently began air strikes in syria in september. the french aircraft carrier was
scheduled to leave for the gulf in the coming days after the uss theodore roosevelt pulled out, leaving the u.s. for the first time in years without an aircraft carrier in the middle east. as the attack in paris was underway, two american f-15s flew from england to libya where the pentagon says they bombed a known isis leader, an iraqi believed to have been the voice on a recent execution tape showing coptic christians beheaded on the beach in libya. since the attack in paris, the french have not carried out any air strikes in syria, according to u.s. defense officials who i spoke to tonight. bret? >> we heard the chairman of the house homeland security committee say, and criticize the president for that contained isis in iraq and syria. it's important to point out that the u.s. and allies are having some success. >> they are. if you look at sinjar, i talked to somebody in iraq today, and the kurds have basically gone in and cut that highway from raqqa to mosul. you might wonder why it took them a year to call in the air strikes that allowed the kurds
to move forward to do that. but tonight we do understand that the kurds are pretty much in control of that key highway. >> thank you. a senior administration official says president obama will still go to paris for next month's climate talks. right now the president is on his way to turkey for a previously scheduled g-20 summit which will now no doubt focus on isis and terrorism. kevin cork is in turkey tonight's. good evening. >> reporter: bret, no surprise that what was supposed to be a summit about economic growth in cooperation has really evolved into an antiterrorist for president obama and other world leaders of the as you pointed out, the president left washington for turkey today and g-20 summit, a major meeting on his schedule each and every year. in this particular case, unfortunately for the white house, it will not just be focused on what happened with the economy. given the fact that turkey's proximity to syria is so close, there is no surprise that the war on terror broadly speaking and the battle against isis will
be a major back story here. this morning the president convened a meeting with his national security team to discuss the big happenings in paris over the last 24 hours. we learned in a readout that the president's team reviewed the homeland security posture to insure that they're doing everything necessary to protect the american people. here security was already tight. that looks to get even more so in the hours ahead as more leaders arrive here. meanwhile in vienna, secretary of state john kerry met with his russian counterpart. they talked a great deal about what happened in france and were in agreement that the world is in absolute disgust over what happened in paris. >> there was a broad-based sense of revulsion of horror and a deep commitment to do more to try to bring an end to the violence of the region and of the world. >> reporter: russians involved in -- iran also being there is
really gonna be a major focus of the discussions here. you and i have talked about this previously. russian president vladimir putin also will be here. while the white house says the president doesn't have a scheduled bilateral with putin, they will no doubt meet on the side lines. terror will be the focus here, no doubt about that. >> kevin cork, thank you. still ahead, president obama's former top diplomat, hillary clinton, will no doubt be pressed on foreign policy during the democratic debate. first our panel of international experts on what happened in paris and what it means for us. as we head to break, take a look at this. a special moment today as the army football team took the field carrying the american and french flag diabetes, steady is exciting.

my dear compatriots, what happened last night in paris is an act of war and when facing a war, the country must take the appropriate decisions. >> french president hollande talking about the paris attacks of the let's talk about them, what they mean, with our special panel. fox news terrorism analyst walid feris and two other guests. walid, obviously really organized. this is a new evolution for isis. what does it tell us about their strength and their fortitude to pull off these attacks. >> the kind of operations they've delivered is something they do every day in syria and iraq and elsewhere, and even
al-qaeda have done that, if you take each component separate. but putting them together, becomes strategics. they have a goal which is not just tactical. we should not only listen to what the individuals on the ground have said, syria, iraq, it's really what the leadership want and the leadership wanted to disable french foreign policy from committing further and more -- next to the use united states and syria and iraq. it's that level. >> julie, how much do you think we have this chatter that something like this was going to happen? how much talk do you think there is between countries about what they're hearing? >> there is a lot more we could have expected during the lead up to an events like 9-11. we streamlined the u.s. government mass streamlined coordination and communication a lot. but from a counterterrorism perspective, reality has literally changed overnight. waking up today, people are going to find that as we get numbers on recruitment figures for the organization, it's going
to skyrocket. the success of these attacks is a tremendous propaganda tool for them. >> to that point, within the first hours of these attacks, 50,000 tweets from isis related sites. really sending out the message and trying to get to the people. >> it was gonna be a good day for our side until that because sinjar was liberated. jihadi john was killed. i don't think the attack was just put together at the last minute to respond to those events. they sort of got lucky in that public relations sense because it was about to look as if we were finally making a little headway against their strongholds in iraq and syria. and i think we are, although the pace is way too slow for my taste and i think for prudence sake. again, the timing turned out that everybody forgot about sinjar and jihadi john and we've seen this terrible tragedy. >> i want to play a sound bite from secretary kerry in austere i can't today talking about syria, the way forward, the political way forward and how to stop what's happening on the
ground. >> it is time for the bleed not guilty syria to stop. it is time to deprive the terrorists of any single kilometer in which to hide. it is time that we come together to help the syrian people embark on the difficult but extraordinarily imperative of rebuilding their country. >> i guess michael, the question is, is that realistic considering where we are in syria now? >> i don't think we have a solid political strategy for syria and therefore, i don't think we're going to get the whole world to agree on a pathway forward. i think we need o recognize syria is not going to be put together again. that gives you ways to compromise with russia. president assad couldn't retreat to the autonomous group from which -- that's the kind of a concept that gives us a practical path by path, step by step idea.
this idea of negotiate ago big government in one fail swoop, even if they could be created, who is going to give them any authority on the ground. there is president obama army or police force to do it. >> yeah. coupled with that is the fact that this is a game changer. the success of these attacks in every conceivable sense of the word. i think the days of western leaders declaring that we've contained isis and syria because we managed to disrupt a supply route here or a cell there are behind us. what's very evident now is that we need a major wholistic, probably military-led campaign if we are to achieve our goal of degrading and eventually defeating isis. >> what worries me and worries many french allies is the goal, potential goal of this operation may be more than just that. it may be to drag the french government to go after other cells, clash in urban areas and that would remind us what happened ten years ago when 10,000 cars burned in the pushes of paris and other cities. >> tinder box. thank you very much for saturday night here panel.
national stadium heard explosions which turned out to be suicide bombings outside the seating area. minutes later, two gunmen with automatic weapons opened fire at restaurants across the street from each other, killing 15. a few streets south, a restaurant was hit, with a cafe. five were killed there. minutes later, another restaurants under attack. 19 people killed in that attack. at 9:40 p.m., a suicide bomber detonates another inside another restaurant. the worst carnage was at the bataclan concert hall. reports say two men emptied assault rifles into the crowd, shooting people as one witness described, like they were birds. 89 people died in that concert hall. let's go back to paris where it's half past midnight sunday morning. steve harrigan is live right now. hello, steve. >> seven attackers, six separate attacks and two of those attacks
took place 24 hours ago right behind me, a small crowd putting out some banners and paying their respects. this cambodian restaurant was hit a. black volkswagen pulled up. a gunman got out and started firing at the diners. two more got out and started firing here. more than 100 rounds were found on the ground. 15 people dead. it was then they moved down the street to the restaurant where people were dining outside. the response from the french president has been one of real anger and force, saying this is war. their response will be merciless. really from the people around here, there seems a sense of just being stunned by the absolute randomness and violence. many people staying inside. the lights here really darkened. as far as the attackers themselves go, we are learning a little bit more about them. one a french born man. also one, possibly passport found from syria next to the body. that passport shows an entrance into the european union as a
refugee through greece. so more and more coming to light about these seven different attackers. bret, back to you. >> steve harrigan live in paris, thank you. how will the u.s. military respond to the paris attacks by isis? let's get some thoughts from retired general jack keane. thanks for being here. >> good to be here. >> your thoughts on this? we've been talking about the operations that have been underway. does this change the dynamic considering these attacks? >> i think it does. i mean, the way i would approach this if i was in that national security meeting the president had today, i'd start with the premise that what actions would we take if this happened in the united states? then go from there. the reality is we got to face up to who is isis and what are they really doing? this center of gravity from isis from the beginning has been syria. it is to syria that gave them the base so that they can conduct the invasion into iraq. it is from syria that they've expanded into eight affiliates
documented in writing, relationships with other countries and it's from syria that they're hitting 20,000 media hits a day to inspire what we saw in france, french citizens to conduct attacks against their own people. for what purpose? to defy and polarize that community so they will undermine the support that the government is doing for the war. understand that's the premise. so you've got to go to syria and start taking isis headquarters down in syria. >> all right. for the people who say that's exactly what isis wants, that's exactly what they want, they want us to come in to their den and then start this war. >> well, i don't believe they want that at all. the fact of the matter is, what makes isis different -- and it is in modern history. it's the most successful terrorist organization we've been dealing with. why is that? because they have a huge swath of territory they control.
that is also their vulnerability. this is a physical military thing to take that territory away from them. they beginning to away when you take the territory away. right now 17 months after mosul when they seized it, 17 months from that date and they are convincing the world, they're standing up to the united states and a huge military coalition. in fact, it's considerably less than what the rhetoric would suggest, but it gives them a degree of invincibility. it gives them a sense that there is a destiny to what they're doing and an overall aura of success. we have got to take that away from them. >> is there a frustration inside the military about a lack of strategy? >> absolutely. the military has never been given the opportunity to truly conduct what we would do, mission, degrade, defeat isis. build a campaign plan with options to do that, and then put the risk together with those
options. the president make a decision. we have never been given that opportunity. what we've been told from the beginning is we're gonna do something about isis, but there is going to be no boots on the ground. we're going to have a very limited air campaign because we're so worried about civilians. we're going to have rules of engagement that are beyond anything we've ever used in wars in the last 20-plus years. the restrictions imposed on the military to affect the campaign is why we have these results. 17 months later, this organization is largely succeeded. it's not being contained. it's certainly not shrinking. that kind of language we use is irresponsible. >> quickly, is isis different in that you can't just chop off the head, that there are a lot of leadership structures? is it different as an organization than we've seen before? >> they're not operating themselves as they did when they were growing in iraq as al-qaeda, too. so they are much larger
organization. they have heads of those organizations much like a military organization has. but then there is the political side of isis which expands into the other countries, which is doing the social media and the rest of it. you got to take the head down, but once you do that, it's a lot easier than to deal with the rest of it. >> general keane thank you. >> good talking to you. >> when we come back, we will go live to des moines, iowa, site of tonight's democratic candidate debate. we'll get their reaction to paris later on. but republicans have been talk being it all day. some of their comments as we head to break. >> when you look at paris, you know, the toughest gun laws in the world, paris, nobody had guns but the bad guys. >> we have to be very careful and very cautious, extraordinarily cautious about who comes to visit. >> if we do not act, this terrorism, this violence will come to america. >> this is a clash of civilizations. and either they win or we win moe rheumatoid arthritis like me,
and you're talking to your rheumatologist about a biologic... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira giving me new perspective. doctors have been prescribing humira for ten years. humira works for many adults. it targets and helps to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to ra symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. talk to your doctor and visit humira.com this is humira at work why should over two hundred years of
citi history matter to you? well, because it tells us something powerful about progress: that whether times are good or bad, people and their ideas will continue to move the world forward. as long as they have someone to believe in them. citi financed the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal, that made our world a smaller place. we backed the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength. and pioneered the atm, for cash, anytime. for over two centuries we've supported dreams like these, and the people and companies behind them. so why should that matter to you? because, today, we are still helping progress makers turn their ideas into reality. and the next great idea could be yours.

test. test. rrn the paris attacks shifted the focus of tonight's democratic presidential debate. ed henry is in des moines, iowa tonight. good evening. >> good evening. this could obviously these attacks could shake up the entire race, already hague an impact on this debate tonight in iowa. the lead moderator of cbs had said, and he had taken some heat for saying that he sat down with aides to all the democratic cappeds, hillary clinton, martin o'malley and bernie sanders. dickerson denied coordinating any questions, but did say he would focus on the topics that they've been focusing on, the economy, middle class. today after these attacks, cbs executives say they're going to shift the focus hard to terror and national security and on the surface, that may seem to benefit the former secretary of state, but remember, experience at 3:00 a.m. phone calls did not win her the race last time and now all of a sudden she's going to have to answer for serving so closely with the president who just yesterday declared that
isis is not gaining ground and has been contained. that may explain why even before these attacks, clinton on the trailed has been trying to separate herself from the president on isis. listen. >> what isis has figured out is how to have a much bigger impact far from the territory they control and they pose a danger not only to our friends and partners, but to us. >> republicans note that even if clinton stumbles either on foreign policy or e-mails, it's unclear how many people really will be watching based on the way the dnc set up the schedule. the rnc says hosting it on a saturday night when the hawkeye also continuities march will insure this debate has little impact in the democratic primary. remember, college football can often inspire more passion than politics. >> that's right. thank you. we'll see you later. please join us tonight for 11:00 p.m. eastern, special look
at the debate from des moines. we'll talk live again to ed and have reaction from republican presidential candidate mike huckabee after the debate in our expanded special panel. we'll go live to paris for the latest on the terrorist attacks, too. >> i don't think they're gaining strength. what is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. they have not gained ground in iraq and in syria, don't come in, don't leave. but you don't see the systematic march by isil across the terrain. what we have not yet been able to do is to completely decapitate their command and control structures. we made some progress in trying to reduce the flow of foreign fighters. >> that was a sound bite ed referenced from president obama taped with abc on thursday, ran on "good morning america." let's talk about the whole paris
attacks and what they mean to the u.s. joining me now -- how it will all factor in, steve hayes, senior writer for the weekly standard, and charles krauthammer and any other guest. steve? >> look, i think the president making comments like that as he has been now for many years eventually was going to catch up with him. you can't say that isis is contained and you run the risk of isis expanding and conducting attacks in paris, perhaps one day in the united states. we heard this from the obama administration for years. literally since the beginning of the president's term, even predating his term. remember there is a famous argument he gets in with david petraeus about the reach of al-qaeda and iraq, which is the precursor to isis. the president has been saying this for a long time. i think that's one of the reasons that this i think complicates hillary clinton's bid. she'll be fine in the democratic primary. but she'll have to find a way to finesse a defense of the
administration broadly and a defense particularly of her role as secretary of state with the growing unease in the american electorate that we aren't really safe and that this threat does continue. >> yeah. dave, is it fair to say that this event in paris changes the dynamic completely for the 2016 race? >> i don't see how it doesn't. i think it's a shame that this democratic debate is on a saturday night competing with football, iowa football, because i think it's going to be a fascinating events. all week you heard about martin o'malley and bernie sanders strategizing to hit hilly on keystone pipeline or immigration. that looks very small now. i think they have to tear up their pre-paris debate plans and i think hillary clinton is in a very tough spot tonight. she said just this week she would not put any american boots on the ground to deal with this. will she put that on the table tonight and will o'malley and sanders hit them? frankly, sanders isn't in a
great spot for this either. he doesn't talk about foreign policy very much. i think this will consume at least half of the debate tonight. >> we're going to take a quick break. i'll get your thoughts. the first thoughts from charles on this attack and what it means for the u.s. going forward after this your body was made for better things than rheumatoid arthritis. before you and your rheumatologist move to a biologic, ask if xeljanz is right for you. xeljanz is a small pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well. xeljanz can reduce joint pain and swelling in as little as two weeks, and help stop further joint damage. xeljanz can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma, and other cancers have happened. don't start xeljanz if you have an infection. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts, and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened. your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz, and monitor certain liver tests.
>> we are back with the panel, charles? >> cameron is right about isis expanding. it is a good way for isis, they attacked beirut and likely brought down an russian airliner and now the french. that is a lot of reach. the question is why france? they have a lot of objectives. the first, you have to ask yourself, why was a syrian passesport found bite bomber? they were all carrying suicide bombs and he didn'txd need it. it was a way to exer bait. it is a way to use the migration to infilt trait. that will be a huge issue. and walid talked about.
this they want the french government to go in the no go suburbs where the weight of the government does not extend and reoccupy them and that is huge tension in france. seven and half percent of the population is muslim. and get the french out of the air war and i think in that respect. it is a miscalculation. the french for all of our ridicule of their military prowess are serious players and they are all over west africa. andñi they have troops and when they get up set as they are now. they will redouble the efforts. and they may be the ones to push obama to showing leadership. >> hollande on domestic policy is far to the left. but on foreign policy he is leading on the counter terrorism.
ma li, he pushed the u.s. on the iran deal. it is interesting p to watch the french to develop in a substantial counter terrorism. >> and leading from behind, the description from an obama administration to describe the approach in libia. we were following france. the challenge forxd france when you heard hollande said we will lead this prosecutions and prosecute the war is whether the united states will truly follow. president obama said as he said, we will do everything it takes to defeat this scourge of terrorism. we haven't done everything it takes and i think it is responsible to doubt that this will change anything and it will require great leadership from hollande. i was looking for signs from
capitol hill. i saw the statement from senator feinstein who said it is not enough. it is a democrat, and not a republican. she has good credibility. and she said nothing specific about ground troops but the limited air strikes are not enough. and watching where they go this weeks fascinating. >> the migration issue and refugee issue is it bigger here in the u.s. and in europe and governments and how they are dealing with it? >> there has to be be. there is a back lash without infiltration of isis. placement of terrorist that is going to die that the announcement they are infilt traiting isis. and put merkel on the defensive.
and what isis is good at doing to make, look, it is taking over the attention of the world. the entire g- 20 meeting will be about isis. especially will in paris and france. they have seething population of muslim, and many of them are anti- regime. and the question of the french government. are you going in, in force. sark osky almost did. it he flinched. i am not sure they will this time. >> final thought was heroes in paris when we come back. same eyes. same laugh. and since she's had moderate alzheimer's disease, i've discovered we have the same fighting spirit, too. that's why i asked her doctor about new once-a-day namzaric™.
vo: new namzaric is approved for moderate to severe alzheimer's disease in patients who are currently taking, and can continue to take certain doses of both namenda and donepezil. new namzaric is the first and only treatment to combine 2 proven alzheimer's medicines into a single once-a-day capsule that works 2 ways to fight the symptoms of moderate to severe alzheimer's disease. once-a-day namzaric may improve cognition and overall function and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. namzaric does not change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, donepezil, piperidine or any of the ingredients in namzaric. before starting treatment, tell the doctor about any medical conditions they have... including heart or lung problems, seizures, stomach ulcers, bladder, kidney, or liver problems. tell the doctor if the patient will have any procedures involving anesthesia, which may cause muscle problems. other serious side effects may occur, including slow heartbeat and fainting; increased stomach acid, which may raise the chance of ulcers and bleeding; nausea and vomiting;
difficulty passing urine, seizures, and worsening of lung problems. the most common side effects associated with namzaric are headache, diarrhea, dizziness, loss of appetite, and bruising. woman: mom and i share a lot of moments. and we're making the most of each one. vo: ask your doctor if new namzaric is right for your loved one. oh no... (under his breath) hey man! hey peter. (unenthusiastic) oh... ha ha ha! joanne? is that you? it's me...
