bringing our total donations to over sixty-five million dollars. and bringing love where it's needed most. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. live from america's news headquarters, good evening. a rare visit to the pentagon monday morning, reportedly to sell his strategy for fighting islamic state army. we're told the president will also drop by the national counterterrorism center to assess and discuss the current combat situation in the middle east. the last time mr. obama went to the pentagon was back in july. afterwards he announced plans to send 50 special operations forces into syria. police in southern california say two mosques in the city of hawthorne were vandalized with paint on sunday. a replica of a hand grenade was left in the driveway of one of
10:01 pm
those mosques. cops suspect both incidents were hate crimes. the fbi has been asked to join the investigation. this comes one day after police near palm springs arrested a man for allegedly igniting a fire at an islamic center. i'm kelly wright. now here's "hannity." >> welcome to the special edition of "hannity," jihad in america. a poll shows 79% of americans say a terror strike is very or somewhat likely to take place in the next couple of months. but 44% indicating that it is very likely to happen. despite the serious concerns, president obama has done very little to calm americans' fears. according to the same poll, 57% disapprove of his handling of terrorism and that say record high for that particular poll. if you've been listening to the president's comments on isis, should not come as a surprise
10:02 pm
back in 2014 during an interview he said, quote, well, the analogy we use around here, sometimes and i think it is accurate is if a jv team puts on lakers uniforms, that doesn't make them kobe bryant. and then hours before the attack in paris, the president boldly contained isis was contained. >> we've always understood our goal has to be con training isil capabilities, cutting off their supply lines, financing. >> but isis is gaining strength, aren't they? >> i don't think they're gaining strength. what is true is 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, it -- don't come in, they'll leave. but you don't see this systematic march across the terrain. what we have not yet been able to do is to completely
10:03 pm
decapitate their command and control structures. >> now, president obama can say that, but according to his current around former secretaries of defense, isis is not contained. watch this. >> i think the mission that he said is the right mission, which is to disrupt, dismantle and destroy isis, that's the right mission, but i think the resources implied to that mission frankly have not been sufficient. >> we have a near term problem that needs to be addressed or a challenge. i think are some things we could be doing or intensifying that would perhaps yield greater success to what's happening here. it is completely out of control. there's no prospect for bringing any kind of stability. >> have we currently contained isil? >> we have not contained isil. >> we have not contained isil.
10:04 pm
mr. secretary, do you agree? >> i agree. >> even dianne feinstein said they're not contained and they are growing. joining us now, 2016 republican presidential candidate, florida governor jeb bush. good to see you. thanks for being with us. such a serious issue. talking about the lives of the american people. look at what happened in paris, san bernardino. president's wrong on the jv team. on them being contained. he said isil is not an existential threat to americans. how could he be so wrong when the smart people are telling him he's wrong? >> it's devastating because it shows what we know. the president doesn't believe this is an existential threat to the region or the country and it is. they've declared war on us and we have not done anything other than view it as a law enforcement exercise and we need to create a strategy to destroy us isis.
10:05 pm
their containment is their victory. recruit home grown terrorists in our own country and we saw that play out in a tragedy a couple of weeks ago and it will continue to occur unless we're vigilant to protect the homeland and have a strategy and a military strategy to destroy isis in syria and iraq. and mean it. and lead the world as we're only capable to do. >> we have two big developments. one, the big news today. one, isis has full access to the passports for syrians and they're manufacturing them and using them to get into america. that coupled with the chairman of the homeland security said earlier this week about isis has a plan to infiltrate the refugee population. i want to play it for you. >> isis has said in their own words they want to exploit the refugee process. to infiltrate the west and they did exactly that to attack paris. i can reveal today that the
10:06 pm
united states government has information to indicate that individuals tied to terrorist groups in syria have already attempted to gain access to our country through the u.s. refugee program. >> my question, governor, if isis is trying to infiltrate the refugee population, does the chairman of the homeland security commission said, that raises the political question everyone's been asking this week. what about a ban to make things, all immigration, to make sure we have the system working properly. what are your thoughts? >> i think we should have a ban on refugees coming here until it's clear there aren't any terrorists embedded. but if a kurd wanted to come to this country, the strongest supporters of the united states in the region that are muslim, i'm not sure that's the appropriate thing or an indonesian, blanket coverage of all muslims doesn't make sense, but the key is to have a strategy to destroy isis. we need safe havens inside of
10:07 pm
syria, the best solution is to make sure they don't leave, to give them safe harbor and build a sunni-led force to take out isis. the argument about protecting the homeland is important. don't get me wrong. it is really important. i think we need to make sure the fbi deals with local law enforcement better. we need to restore the met data program. we need to make sure our int intelligence capabilities are shared in a better way. across the board, we need to review every element, the ki visa, fiance visa. all of this stuff, we need to make sure going forward we recognize what this threat is. and we need to do it simultaneously with creating a strategy to destroy isis. only america can do this. >> you know, because isis though identified the refugee population and they're targeting that and they did so successfully in paris, it seems
10:08 pm
we've got to pay very special attention to that. i guess one of the biggest worries i would have as an american, i'm sure the majority of people want to get out of the horrible civil war, the conditions they're living in, i don't know if we could possibly have the means of mechanism to vet people because we know that isis would train those people that are infiltrating to give all the right answers. so i don't know if you could even possibly assure the american people 100% any way. thoughts. >> well, if you can't, they shouldn't come in. that's my point. i think the focus on the refugee issue, which is what the congress is looking at is the appropriate thing to do. if you can't convince the american people based on fact that you've changed your policies to assure that wouldn't happen, then of course, they shouldn't be allowed in. with home grown terrorists, we need a more robust effort. to protect the homeland as well. they are taking advantage of our
10:09 pm
freedom. it's what they see as their vulnerability and they will attack it each and every way they can. >> yes. well, listen, i think that is the goal of radical islamists around the world. do you think when you look at hillary clinton's plan and she basically agrees with the president, do you think we have gone back to a pre 9/11 mind set? because i think we have.ot off gas, eye off the battle being waged against us and maybe people were war torn, but the war has not stopped for the enemy. >> i agree. both barack obama and hillary clinton believe we can have a law enforcement exercise as it relates to taking it to isis in syria and iraq, they have put so many constraints on the war fighters, including sending
10:10 pm
leaflets out truck drivers sending illicit oil, sending warning signals that we were going to bomb them. in a bush administration, they would be bombed because they're leaving isis controlled territories. you want to deter truck drivers from driving to the north, kill a few of them because they are part and parcel of this effort. >> what do you think about taking out the president as we learned from mike mural, former cia director, in fact, we didn't take out the financial source of isis in iraq and syria, because they didn't want environmental damage. is that any way the fight a war? >> you seen the espn show in the morning before the nfl games where mr. jackson goes, come on, man? that's what that answer is. this is ridiculous. this is a war. every element of what you're describing is an example of how president obama and hillary clinton do not believe that this is a war. they have more concerns about gun control and climate change
10:11 pm
than they do about this asymmetric threat to our way of life. than they do about this asemitic >> let me ask you about the state of the race. trump remains on top. i know he's been a thorn in the side of a lot of the other candidates, but there's been talk that maybe there will be a brokered convention or people won't support the winner of the nominating process. i don't see you in that camp. if you don't win, you'll support the winner. how do you, but more importantly, how do you see a path to victory for yourself seven weeks out of iowa? >> so, i think that first of all, i don't think donald trump's going to win the nomination. i don't think he's offering a serious set of proposals. we're in serious times and need real leadership. i think americans in general and particularly people in iowa and new hampshire, who take their first in the nation responsibility seriously, will select someone or a group of people to go forward that have the skills to be actually be commander in chief.
10:12 pm
and so i'm confident campaigning hard in iowa and new hampshire and south carolina that i will be in my ascendancy. that's my path forward. i think we need to proven leader to sit behind the big desk and make these big choices on behalf of the american people to keep us safe and my records suggest i'm a serious person that can make tough decisions. i don't create an illusion of false promises. i deliver real results. >> thank you for being with us. appreciate it. >> thank you, shawn. coming up next, right here on "hannity." >> the intelligence community is concerned that they have the ability, the capability, to manufacture fraudulent passports. >> more on report that says u.s. government officials are worried that isis has stolen a passport printing machine and jihadists may have used it to enter america. more reaction later. and also later tonight, as trump's muslim ban proposal, the best way to keep americans safe. that and more on this special
10:13 pm
edition of "hannity," jihad in america.
10:14 pm
10:15 pm
are you concerned that isis has the ability to create fraudulent passports or other identification documents for its operatives that has a practical matter, it would be almost impossible to detect. >> yes, mr. chairman, the intelligence community is concerned that they have the ability, the capability to manufacture fraudulent passports. >> that was the fbi director on capitol hill earlier this week sounding the alarm over isis infiltrating the refugee population coming into america. tonight, fox news has confirmed a newer report that u.s. intelligence officials fear isis terrorists are now manufacturing fake syrian passports and may have used them already to enter america.
10:16 pm
here with reaction, bill cowen, former detective bow deedle and fox news analyst k.t. mcfarland. basically, it confirms even further we need a temporary ban until we get the system right. >> i think we need a temporary pause, maybe two months, three months, have some kind of management consultants look at the whole system, top to bottom, see what we're doing and how to fix it. this is not a partisan issue. not a republican democrat issue, it's an issue about how -- >> it's homeland security. it's the safety of the american people. we learned they are man manufacturing their own passports. that means there are plenty of phony passports. and coming into america and the house homeland security chair this week on this program pointed out to this audience that in fact, isis has hatched a plan to infiltrate the refugee population. >> they don't have to do the refugees. we've learned two of the cities
10:17 pm
in syria taken over by isis had two passport officers with boxes of blank passports and they could put whoever's picture they want in there. also, we've learned that they're coming from our southern most border into america, so -- >> you told me this earlier this week. you talked so some of your friends on border patrol and i.c.e., they're seeing these syrian passports. >> border patrol are picking them up, seeing the passports, turning them over and bring them into the country. my problem with is when you've got a jokester, the house of the white house spokesman, this little jerky kid, when he's talking on tv, saying how they have all this intelligence, he's telling a lie. it's a damn lie. they let them into america with the visa, with their passport and half of the passports now we don't know who's real. you have a syrian passport, it
10:18 pm
could be isis. >> it's horrible. they're telling us isis has a plan that they're getting in, they have fake passports and we've confirmed this and there's no way to vet everybody, why not put a pause to protect the safety and security of the american people. and not gamble with their lives. temporarily, until we get it right. >> if we don't put a pause of some sort in, we do it at our own risk. canada is letting in 25,000 syrian refugees on what they're calling an accelerated program. they're letting them in before february. which may have these false passports, we talk about the southern border. this creates a whole new problem for us in my judgment with the northern border. >> the cbs "new york times" poll showed 70% of the american people view isis as a major threat to america. and i want to play this cut from
10:19 pm
chair mike mccall. listen to what he says that isis has this plan to infiltrate this population. >> isis has said in their own words, they want to exploit the refugee process. to infiltrate the west and they did exactly that to attack paris. i can reveal today that the united states government has information to indicate that individuals tied to terrorist groups in syria have already attempted to gain access to our can country through the u.s. refugee program. >> that means americans will die. that's how i interpret that. >> absolutely. >> again, i.c.e. agent called me, didn't want their name to be known, if they say i'm afraid to go back to my country, that is the signal, that's the magic word. i'm afraid to go back to my country, well, welcome to america, but who are you? he said it a little bit over the top, every muslim. i don't agree with that.
10:20 pm
what we should do is put a pause until we know who the hell is coming into this country. this is getting real scary and i don't want to frighten people, but it's serious, real serious. >> the other problem is that we don't hear them anymore. in the past, there's a terrorist incident and people would say, we just didn't connect the dots. we're not seeing the dots anymore. >> here's the problem, the intelligence failed. in san bernardino failed. they've been radicalized for a long time. >> plotted for years and 19 pipe bombs, the guy worked in the school system. what was the real plan? think went real fast, but what was the real plan, to kill children in schools? >> they were prepared to do a lot more because they had the triple wrap on three of the bombs. last word. colonel cowen. >> we talk about it, intelligence failure, but i think the real failure is that a law enforcement and intelligence in my judgment, they don't get enough credit. the problem is, there may be so many targets they can't put the
10:21 pm
resources against the targets they'd like to and because of that, incidents like san bernardino happened. >> thank you for being with us. coming up next, tonight, right here on "hannity." >> 20% from the people that i speak to, islam is their religion and who have a desire for caliphate. >> 5 to 20%. 60 to 240 million people. a disturbing admission from a democratic lawmaker, to authorities need to begin surveilling mosques? they're doing it in paris. do they need to do it here? plus, later tonight. >> they want our buildings to come down. our cities to be crushed. they are living within our country and many of them want to come from outside of our country. i am saying that until we figure this out, we should have a ban. it's very simple. >> taking a lot of heat over his
10:22 pm
proposed ban, but is it the best way for politicians to keep americans safe? that and more on this special edition of hannity, jihad in america.

and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief early this week, california democratic congresswoman loretta sanchez made this shocking statement. >> we know there is a small group, we don't know how big that is, that can be anywhere between 5% and 20% from the people i speak to that islam is their religion. and who have a desire for caliphate and to institute that in any way possible. and in particular, go after what they consider western norms. our way of life. >> that's between 60 million and 240 million people. in light of that shocking statistic as well as the deadly

attacks in san bernardino, do authorities need to start surveilling mosques here in the united states to see if they have connections to groups? joining us now, author of the complete infidel's guide to isis, robert spencer, as well as dr. assad and he claims he was forced to resign as an imam from the complex after he appeared on this show earlier this week and supported donald trump's proposed muslim temporary ban. since yesterday, we have tried contact the islamic society to get a statement. but they have not gotten back to us. imam, let's start with you. you've come on the show. say you support the idea of a temporary ban so we can get our vetting system right. what happened? >> that's exactly right. the problem is i -- day after day, it's becoming more clear to me that a lot of american muslims, that's what we have been screaming in many lectures,
10:26 pm
seems like they have not, ready to attack and been receiving since your show, about six or seven text messages threatening me for how dare you about banning immigrants and muslims. the problem after being forced to resign yesterday -- >> what's the reason they gave that you were forced to resign? what did they tell you? >> his exact statements, how possible that you could support trump and you know who is -- what is, what do you mean like i know who's trump. we are dealing with facts and we're dealing with certain statements. we are just people and leaders go with the textbook. the original emotions in our viewpoints. we don't take candidates, they have their own campaigning. why would you mix a campaign with a message that will bring

10:28 pm
it to kill innocent men, women and children he, to me, is part of the solution and now, he's thrown of his mosque and getting death threats. or threats from people. what does that tell us? >> this is a reality check for everybody who says we need to reach out. we need to work with the moderate muslims, the majority of them were -- here where you see an imam, says listen, we have a problem. we need to start educating the youth about moving away from radicalism. you see the reaction he is getting. we have heard this reaction, there were people who spoke up before like hamid and skraser and many of the moderate muslims we work with and what we need to pay attention to is the radicalization of mosques today. three separate studies of american mosque across the ice and some of the most prominent
10:29 pm
in america, showed that 70% of americans mosques are radicalized. and what happened to this imam is a reality check for us to learn from. >> robert spencer, i mean, what we said, to win this battle, we need moderate, we need muslims. to stand up against radicals in their religion. here, you have this imam, courageously saying for the safety of american people, the vetting system isn't right. they're forging passports. isis has a plan to infiltrate the refugee community and this imam says no, no, the safety of americans comes first. let's get that right an he's thrown out of his mosque. i'm trying to understand. >> very telling. because what you have here is the fact that isis and other islamic groups like it, they claim to be the expo innocence of authentic islam and they threaten to murder anybody who gets out of line, so, if you were a genuine moderate, a sin
10:30 pm
sincere muslim who rejects ki killing in the name of the law and mohammad, you're putting your own life on the line and could be threatened. this is one of the reasons why we don't see a big pushback among moderates and why it's foolish to count on them. there have been muslims against is i rallies that have gotten like 30 people, 50 people here and there around the country and they don't have the huge numbers you see for people like protesting cartoons of mohammed and things like that. the problem that we have is that the islamic jihadists can point to the texts and teachings of the koran and example of mohammed to justify their actions. the moderates have no counter to that. >> you heard sanchez, a democratic congresswoman, saying she believes it's between 5% and 20% of the population that's been radicalized. you know, through your experience, do you think those numbers are correct? >> even if it wasn't correct, even 1% is too much.

welcome back. now, despite the wave of terror attacks, democratic politicians are largely unwilling to utter the term, radical islam, but in order to combat terrorism, we must fully understand the threat and label it appropriately. my next guest calls herself an anti-islamic muslim and wrote about her life in saudi arabia before immigrating to the the united states. the land of invisible women. a female doctor's journey inside
10:50 pm
the saudi kingdom. she is with us and she officially became a u.s. citizen earlier today. so, congratulations, doctor. >> thank you so much. >> glad to have you in our family. >> it was a long process. how long did it take? >> over 20 years. >> what kind of doctor are you? >> i'm a sleep disorder specialist. >> so, you grew up in england. >> yes, exactly. >> and practiced medicine in saudi arabia. >> after i finished my american training, american trained doctors are in high demand. i decided to take a position in riyadh, saudi arabia. >> how are women treated there? >> as a physician, i had all the powers and opportunities that i would have had here in the united states, but as soon as i stepped away from the bedside in the public space, i had no freedom of movement. i was in veil, not just a scarf, but a cover covering my face, clothing and the body.
10:51 pm
i had to leave my car keys in the united states. no expression of religious freedom that i would recognize. i was raised by pluralistic muslims. >> are there catholic churches there? synagogues? >> not only no place for christian worship, but even symbols of other religions are prohibited. my nurses were sometimes, american, canadian, filipinos, christians would conceal their religious symbols and i had to protect them to make sure they were not visible, which turned me into an oppressor. >> what would happen if they got caught? >> it's forbidden by the state, so i don't know what the penalties are. but it is not safe for those individuals. >> let's talk about a woman who lives there. because women must obey their husbands. they must dress a certain way, cover themselves as their husbands dictate. they have the morality police in saudi arabia. can't be seen in public. >> they're called the religious police and are supposedly safeguarding virtue and prohibiting sin, but they are very intimidating.
10:52 pm
i was intimidated by that. everything you said about women is true. a woman is designated as a minor. a woman doesn't have the right of an adult. >> a man will decide if she goes to work. a man will decide if she goes to school. even custody of children is very punitive against women. and if i had an adult female patient, even though she was an adult, i couldn't take medical consent from her. it would have to be from a male who might be a 15-year-old boy. >> you talk about women being invisible, can't drive cars, can they? >> no. that's very symbolic of saudi arabia. they're lacking many of the rights too. i was treating women who were -- but my colleagues were privileged, many educated in the states or winderland or france, even then or a woman with my education was -- we were not able to be autonomous. no freedom of travel. when i entered the country, my
10:53 pm
passport belonged to my employer, leaving the country requires an exit visa. all things are still true in saudi arabia. >> they believe there is no such thing as marital rape in saudi arabia. >> i don't know. >> when you say invisible women in saudi arabia, why do you think there are so few women in america that speak out about that. and number two, do you think men that grow up in that culture, where they get to tell women how to dress, whether they go to school, whether they go out in public, can't drive a car, do you think those men, if they want to come to america, do you think some bring those attitudes with them? >> it could be. i saw something more disturbing than that. even western men who were also working there in positions like i was became comfortable with some of the -- of women in subtle ways, not opening a door for a woman was common. getting accustomed to women
10:54 pm
being at the back of the room. women took a back seat. the saudi women themselves, many of them are pugilistic, very assertive and really are making headway, many of the women i knew are changing the country currently. >> would you be afraid to go back? >> it is not my book i would be afraid to go back. it is the fact i have positive relations with the state of israel, i advocate for an israel university, i believe in israel's right to exist. it made me persona non grata there. coming up, more "hannity" right after this quick break. yo >>

orencia works differently by targeting a source of ra early in the inflammation process. for many, orencia provides long-term relief of ra symptoms. it's helped new ra patients and those not helped enough by other treatments. do not take orencia with another biologic medicine for ra due to an increased risk of serious infection. serious side effects can occur including fatal infections. cases of lymphoma and lung cancer have been reported. tell your doctor if you're prone to or have any infection like an open sore, the flu, or a history of copd, a chronic lung disease. orencia may worsen your copd. if you're not getting the relief you need... ask your doctor about orencia. orencia. see your ra in a different way. i-i-i clicked on some links, ugh the kids weren't even home. wait, wait, wait, this changes everything. it's cars.com service & repair feature. so we'll never pay more than we should. well done. research, price, find. get the right service without all the drama.
