12:06 pm
police. cpd has failed us over and over. >> all of this, of course, coming after major protests in chicago the last few weeks, calling for the mayor, rahm emanuel to step down. the city waited more than a year to release police dash cam videotape showing an officer shooting 17-year-old laquan mcdonald 16 times, mostly in the back in 2014. the officer now charged with first degree murder. the feds say they're investigating that case and chicago police practices, including the use of force. matt is at city hall in chicago. what else are we learning about this weekend shooting? >> reporter: well, greg, like you just said, the city of chicago has just been on edge as thousands of protesters have stormed the streets and now the latest police shooting seems to be adding fuel to the fire. we learn over the weekend police sale they accidentally shot and killed that 55-year-old mother

12:09 pm
planet. that's next.
12:10 pm
12:11 pm
trump is not serious about being a candidate, and hillary clinton? well, she has no clue about leading the country. those are the words of presidential candidate jeb bush today, the former florida governor campaigning in his home state. bush spoke to a crowd of supporters at a cuban restaurant near miami.
12:12 pm
donald trump taking direct aim at both hillary and bill clinton. ed henry is live in washington. i bush lining up a last stand here in his home state of florida? >> reporter: he may be. we're out now five weeks away fm iowa caucus but jeb bush not there today because he is not in the top tier in iowa, new hampshire, evidence in damp. florida has a big primary march 15th so he may be coming up with a plan b to at least try and win his home state. stage some sort of comeback, and that's where he made his case today. listen. >> we will not win by trying to tear people down. we will not win by disparaging people. we will not win trying to prey on people's angst and fears. we'll win when we believe everybody should have the right to rise up. >> still an uphill battle for him in his home state, two recent polls in florida
12:13 pm
suggesting bush is in fourth place, marco rubio in third, cruz in second, ted cruz, and then donald trump at the top of the heap in florida. this is the challenge for jeb bush. >> surely is, and jeb bush had some choice words for donald trump, but trump seems like he is looking over jeb bush, looking patz to the general election. >> reporter: looking past bush and the rest of the republican field. you mentioned jeb bush taking shots at donald trump. at one point today in florida saying trump wakes up in his pa jam mas, does tv interviews by phone and makes up foreign policy on the fly. donald trump really not responding to much of that these days. as you say, looking ahead to not just hillary clinton in a general election, but bill clinton as well. trump basically saying that since hillary clinton accused him last week of sexism, he is going to raise the same charge against bill clinton, who is now going to be going out on the
12:14 pm
campaign trail a lot, after the first of the year. here's trump. >> i think he is fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled, to put it mildly, because of all of the things she is talking to me about. mentioning sexism. >> reporter: just in the last few moments we learn from the clinton campaign that bill clinton's aggressive campaign schedule begins next monday. he'll have a series of events in new hampshire. so, trump firing shots. bill clinton not shying away and is getting right out there next week. >> should make it interesting. ed henry, thank you very much. let's talk about it now with rebecca berg. national political report for real clear politics. are trump's supporters the real deal? i mean by that, are they the kind of folks that actually cast real ballots? >> well, that's the question that we can't really answer, greg, until they go to the polls
12:15 pm
to at the caucus. starting 0 february 1st with the iowa caulks and then the new hampshire primary february 9th we won't know for sure if donald trump's organization is up to par with other candidates until people actually vote, but we have been having this discussion for months now about whether donald trump's support was real or whether it was kind of empty -- >> aren't his support issues sort of the low information kind of voters? >> yes, absolutely. so, what we have seen from his supporters is that there are people who haven't voted in the past or haven't voted regularly in the past, especially in party primaries. a lot of them have not identified as republicans in the past, so we consider these people as you said to be low-information voters and kind of wild cards when it comes to elections. so, in big change elections, sometimes they will turn out and the question we need to answer is, is donald trump a changed candidate or just a celebrity who they're curious about.
12:16 pm
>> in iowa, which is the first contest, ted cruz is ahead of donald trump there. if cruz manages to pull off a win in iowa, doesn't that have an immediate and arguably dramatic impact on the contest that follows? >> it does. and it would give him some momentum moving forward, and it could lend itself to this narrative that donald trump is not for real, that his support is not as strong as it appears, and that could have an effect going into new hampshire, but we have to remember, donald trump's support in new hampshire is very, very strong. he leads the other candidates by double digits, even though we talk about how strong marco rubio is there, chris christie, donald trump is very much dominating there, and so he does have the catbird seat going into new hampshire. so losing in iowa would have an effect but new hampshire is an open primary, independents and democrats can vote for donald trump there. so he is very competitive in the primary, no matter what happens
12:17 pm
in iowa. >> what do you make of the potential dustup between trump and bill clinton? is that even matter? >> well, it matters in the sense that donald trump is looking to show he is an electable candidate, looking forward to the general election, that if he were nominated by republicans he could play against hillary clinton and bill clinton and the clinton machine, as it is, and so it shows he is thinking past the republican primary itself, trying to play to a bigger audience. we'll see if republican voters actually respond to that. if you look at the polling on trump, republicans have said in many recent polls they think he is the most electable of any republican candidate when it comes to the general election so this lends itself to that argument. >> well, and hillary clinton lost iowa, surprisingly. she was leading there, but she lost is back in 2008. doesn't want it to happen again. so she is send ought very
12:18 pm
popular person, who happens to be her husband to stump on her behalf. that might really sew things up for her? >> absolutely. hillary clinton is entering this primary in a very strong position. i think it would surprise many people if bernie sanders were to really form any sort of challenge to her other than in new hampshire. i think chev is in a very good place in the primary. she needs needs to show she is g enough against bernie sanders, who many people consider not to be the most credible opponent. shows she is strong enough and then carry that momentum into the general election. >> in the latest fox poll trump loses to clinton by 11 points. trump was beating clinton by five point as month ago so he has lost ground, a swing loss of 16 points, pretty dramatic loss for trump to clinton. we'll continue to follow it. rebecca berg, thank you very much. >> thank you, greg.
12:19 pm
>> the man and woman americans admire the most in 2015, president obama and hillary clinton, that according to a new poll. it's a record 20th time that hillary clinton has ranked first in the survey. number two was nobel peace price winner malala, at five percent. followed by oprah winfrey, first lady, michelle obama, presidential candidate, carly fiorina. for the men, pope francis tying with donald trump, followed by presidential candidate, bernie sanders, and bill gates. iraqi forces score a big win against islamic state terrorists in ramadi. they say they have taken control of a government complex at the center of the key city. you can see them raising the iraqi flag there. but the military's work is not done. just ahead, what needs to happen before ramadi is truly free, and why that city is so very important. bring your family and friends together

♪ watching in a winter watchlist land! ♪ xfinity's winter watchlist. watch now with xfinity on demand- your home for the best entertainment this holiday season. today's success is a proud moment for iraqi forces fighting against isis. that's the word from the pentagon spokesman who congratulated troops after take over ramadi. defense officials telling fox thus this night is not over yet. they say at least 100 isis fighters are still believed to be holed in ramadi. u.s. airstrikes have been supporting iraqi forces on the ground and -- they fight to take back the city from isis. militants seized ramadi in may, and major setback for the government.
12:24 pm
they fought two major battles a decade ago some the analysts say the fight to take back the city is seep as major test for iraqi forces. let's bring in mike barrett, former intelligence officer for the office of the secretary of defense, former senior analyst for the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. mike, good to see you. there's a difference between controlling a part of the city or all of the city, and defeating the enemy, isn't there? >> that's right. so i think when people look at this historically, the proper analogy is more like vietnam, as opposed to something like world war ii where there's a defined front, and so in a situation like vietnam, where you hadill governor guerrilla warfare you might control during the day but at night they would come back and terror the population. i can see until the area for sure. >> and ramadi has it not, mike, been really ravaged and with
12:25 pm
booby traps especially? >> it has, yes. the local anbar council, the group of governors from the local area, estimates 80% of the city has been destroyed. we know that whenever isis takes over a place like this, the leave hundreds and hundreds of booby traps. one report of a school said every single desk in the school hat ieds attached to it. they do that to slow down the government forces trying to retake control, but it creates a real bloody mess and makes it very slow and painful to retake the territory. >> let's look beyond ramadi. new jersey a -- fallujah still under isis control. >> itself is, and it's a terrible place to fight. the u.s. in reaps went in there several times, managed to clear it and hold it but we have since lost it, and so what you see is that -- this is the nature of insurgency warfare, isis can retreat from a given piece of the map but if they still control surrounding regions and
12:26 pm
can come at will, while it's a good thing to push them back and kill them you have to keep it in perspective. they still own mosul, the second largest city in iraq, and they still have a lot of present throughout much of the region. >> mike, this is not going be a short deal here. this is going to be a long fight against isis? >> yes, two quick indication of that. when i was in the pentagon we referred to this as a generational conflict, meaning 20, 30, 40 year war so even though we're a decade and a half into it we still have a long ways to go i was reading this morning in the air force times, 2016, they're anticipating a full year of fighting for the u.s. air force between iraq and syria, expecting this is not going to be over in a month or two. they're making deployment plans for the whole year. >> we didn't get to talk about mosul, a huge city which high sis has controlled now for a year and a half, and that's going to be a huge battle.
12:27 pm
so, long way to go. mike barrett, thank you for being with us. >> sure thing. >> just ahead, the devastating weather that is sweeping across so much of this country from tornadoes to floods to heavy snow. we'll take you to one of the hardest hit areas and see what we can expect next. jeb bush: donald, you know, is great at the one-liners.
12:28 pm
but he's a chaos candidate. and he'd be a chaos president. two months ago, donald trump said that isis was not our fight. donald trump: let syria and isis fight. why are we... why do we care? let isis and syria fight. jeb bush: he said that hillary clinton would be a great negotiator with iran. donald trump: hillary's always surrounded herself with very good people. i think hillary would do a good job. jeb bush: and he gets his foreign policy experience from the shows. chuck todd: who do you talk to for military advice right now? donald trump: well, i watch the shows. i mean, i really see a lot of great, you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows... jeb bush: i don't know if that's saturday morning, or sunday morning.
12:29 pm
donald, you're not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency. that's not going to happen. if i'm president, i'll be a commander-in-chief, not an agitator-in-chief or a divider-in-chief... that i will lead this country in a way that will create greater security and greater safety. announcer: right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. the fox report now. more of today's headlines from the fox news deck. hundreds of troops heading to cities in northern england to help deal with severe flooding there. torrential rain forced thousands of people to leave their homes. soldiers going door-to-door to check on people who stayed behind. the n the united states, police say two drivers in a street race in custody after a crash killed three people, including a toddler, in alabama. police say one car plowed into the victims. nine others injured. investigators said none of the victims were taking part in the

a judge has set bail at more than a million dollars each for three men accused of stealing a high-powered speed boat. it happened in florida. authorities were led on this nearly 20-hour chase across the gulf of mexico. there's some of the pictures. investigators say the thieves stole the boat from somebody's dock north of fort meyers. they rammed a about with the local sheriff's department and sheriffs finally nabbed the suspects off the coast of cancun, mexico, 0 miles from cuba -- 70 miles from cube bathroom sheriff's deputies say
12:45 pm
the men were pretty well beaten up from the rough seas and waves up to eight feet. i suspect so. your driver's license soon might not be enough to get past airport security in some states. that's the word from the department of homeland security. now, the feds say beginning next year, tsa agents may only let people on to planes if they have driver's licenses from states that comply with federal standards. otherwise passengers will have to show some other form of government i.d., like a passport. the new policy is a result of the real i.d. act, which congress passed a decade ago to try to bolster national security, but a number of states have failed to put enough security features on their licenses, which means that when in the new rules take effect, people from those states could have a tough time at the airport. court any scott joins us
12:46 pm
now, travel industry analyst for expedia. i first heard about this as a dinner party, and people said, the end of time now and you have to show your passport and it's just going to wreak havoc. a lot of panic out there. >> uncertainty and panic about the real i.d. act. >> what is it? >> started in 2005,crafted by the congress to really credit a minimum set of security measures across all government issued state i.d.s. so prohibit the federal government from allowing any i.d. to be used that didn't meet this set of security standards. >> so, there are some states that currently do not meet the standard. what are they? >> about 80% of the states do. but new mexico, washington, and minnesota, have not yet reached that satisfactory level of compliance with their state i.d.s and have been issued an extension. >> so if you're in those states right now trying to travel, you
12:47 pm
can still use your driver's license but not for long? >> everybody can still use their current driver's license. in fact the department of homeland security said in the latest update you'll have 120 days notification if and when anything changes. >> i'm the daughter -- the father of two teenaged daughters and i can tell you, you can walk into any high school or college campus and you can find pretty quickly a fake i.d., and they're really good fake i.d.s so, i suppose this is a good idea. >> well, one of the new fight tiers which is mandatory is the magnetic strip on the i.d. that will allow tsa to gain a deeper level of the information about the person. that's holding up some states. >> the point i'm trying to make. if it's easy for a teenager to get a fake i.d. that is really good it would be iceyear wannabe terrorists to do the same thing. >> that's the fundamental reason why congress passed the act in
12:48 pm
2005. as a good rule of thumb for the traveler who is think thing traveling is check your current driver's license and make sure it complies with the real i.d. act, and to check whatever forms of i.d. you have available to you. a u.s. passport will get you through tsa as well an enhanced driver's license and the global entry program. >> people should go online to find out whether or not, where they're going is in compliance, right? >> absolutely. so if you're in one of the three states, it's important to check your i.d. and get a sense of whether it is in compliance with the current mandate. >> we're hearing new york is in compliance. >> you're okay here, yes. >> i don't have to worry yet. just about my daughters. and the fake i.d.s. okay. courtney scott, thank you very much. >> sure. >> malaysia airlines launching an investigation after one of its pilots flew the wrong way. airline officials say the pilot
