that's it for "the kelly file." i'm sandra smith. tonight, on "war stories" -- isis ruthless and expanding the so-called islamic state. >> isis is hot wiring apocaly e apocalypse. >> fierce fighters standing against isis. >> parent are a fighting force. our efforts anemic so far. >> attacks in europe and in america. >> the threat is growing in terms of scale
edition of "war stories" from march field in riverside, california. home of the 452nd air mobility wing. i'm oliver north. you are looking at a c-17 globe master. joining me, man who knows about that fight on the ground, former u.s. navy s.e.a.l. laife bevin. >> it's essential in the fight against isis. and it was isis that inspired the attack in san bernardino about 20 miles from here that killed 14 americans and wounded 22 others. >> no question, my mind or yours, we can beat them on the battlefield. >> absolutely. >> can we defeat their ideology? 14 may 2015. al baghdadi, the self proclaimed califh of isis calls for all muslims to migrate or take um
arms in their own country. >> the terror alert raised to the highest level after bombings at the brussels international airport and a subway station in the heart of the capital. >> we heard two very loud explosions. >> if anybody thought it wasn't their problem they ought to recognize it is all of our problem. >> 130 people of 27 nationalities were slaughtered in paris. >> first major attack on french soil since world war ii. around the same time, we had the attacks in lebanon. we had first downing of an airplane since 9/11. this all happened in matter of weeks. >> san bernardino, california. where husband and wife team had thousands of bullets and a stockpile of pipe bombs. >> i think that investigations in all 50 states in america. >> the horror will not end until the muslim community wakes up. >> there's some say who say isis is one of the pran chizs from hell of radical islam, not
really any different of boko haram or al qaeda. is it just isis? >> it's extremism in any form. challenges the american homeland, people and presents a risk to the lives of our partners and alliances, as well. >> after serving at 36th commandant of the marine corps, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. we met in 2003 colonel commanding combat team 5 on the battlefield in iraq. you have got probably more experience in this war than anybody i know. when's changed over the course of those years between 2003 and now? >> today we're probably dealing with a more virulent strain of extremism. >> is it contained and defeated? >> it can be and will be defeated. it requires a couple of things, first deny sanctuary and require us to build the capacity of the partners for security with their own borders and require us to
cut off the resources, the flow of foreign fighters, undermine the credibility of their narrative. >> undermining isis narrative isn't easy. as fast as one can push the send button, propaganda is spread on social media, horrific videos via dabiq the digital magazine. isis claims like all jihadis to follow the paths of islam's founder mohammed who established the first caliphate. >> the most common misconception of isis is, again, the one that they aren't islamic. unfortunately, isis is very islamic. >> timothy furnish has a phd in islamic history, a u.s. arabic specialist and written numerous books on islam including "sects, lies and the caliphate." >> isis has the upper hand in
terms of interpreting the koran because they're applying it literally and very hard to refute them. one of the favorite motifs is to quote hadifs, alleged sayings of mohammed and it's about an armageddon-like battle to take place before the end of time. in the town of northern syria, hence the name of the magazine. like al qaeda, isis never refers to us as americans. isis sees the united states as a christian power and that they'll defeat the crusaders us and bring about the end and the islamic conquest of the world. >> islamic isis' islamic, takes 7th century interpretations and says this they're going to literally apply it to today. >> dr. zudi jaser was a medical officer in the navy and was an
attendi ining physician to the congress, a practices muslim and author of "a battle for the soul of islamic." after the 9/11 attacks, he was disapointed with the muslim-american response and founded aifd, the american islamic forum for democracy. >> this is not our islam. we believe we need reform to get to the 2 sstz century within the discourse. i see many muslims attracted to this idea of the islamic state. the only thing that inoculated me against raz callization is my love for america and liberty. >> yet, isis continues to attract tens of thousands of foreign fighters including americans, intending to die for their cause. isis emerged from the terror group al qaeda in iraq or aqi. >> predecessor group to that was a group that al zarqawi started. >> in "operation iraqi freedom"
al zarqawi was the head of the aqi. >> isis has been able to eclipse al qaeda i think primarily by the fact that they rule a state. they're not hiding in caves and on the margins of the islamic world. >> and it didn't happen overnight. and it's not going to be combatted overnight. >> arizona congresswoman mcsalary served 26 years in the u.s. air force, retiring as a colonel with six deployments to the middle east inud cloog afghanistan and iraq, she holds the disdistinction of first female in combat. mcsalary served on the armed services committee. "war stories" sat down with her in tucson. >> 30,000 fighters from 100 different countries into iraq and syria, we know of 250 americans and about 5,000 or so from western countries.
isis took over territory and declared a caliphate in june of 2014. isis owns territory in iraq and syria, about the size of indiana. and in addition, areas in libya and other ungovern governed spaces they're trying to continue to expand to. >> isis all but erased the borders drawn up after world war i by diplomats. >> the thrust of the strategy is cutting off their heads. we have to cut off their head figuratively by the strength and leadership and territory in iraq and syria. >> up next, general dunford joins us to lay out a path to victory and

in the summer of 2014, isis grabbed a world's attention when the black-clad isis army suddenly charged out of the stronghold in raqqah, syria. isis rapidly seized thousands of square miles of territory including mosul, the second largest city in iraq. iraqi government forces fled before the onslaught and within weeks isis overran ninevah and anbar province. capturing weapons, vehicles and military equipment the u.s. provided to the baghdad government. as their forces advanced, isis released brutal videos showing the beheadings of the scores of captives including american journalist james foley and steven sot love. finally, the president addressed the nation. >> our objective is clear. we will degrade and ultimately
destroy isil. through a comprehensive and sustained counterterrorism strategy. >> the obama administration's declared strategy included u.s. air strikes in iraq and syria and special operatiors on the ground in circumstance. many in congress see it as inadequate. >> the efforts militarily have been anemic so far. we could have been using special operations and air power in a much stronger way in order to roll back isis capabilities and strengthen the more moderate elements. there can be really no solution in this region until we address the assad issue. >> we've got 60 countries that have said they're part of the coalition against isil. in truth, about 20 of them are providing effective military capables. frankly, a focus right now to get the coalition partners to do more. >> do we have allies in the middle east that will help us? not the europeans or nato but allies in the middle east to be
helpful to us in this fight. >> jordan is a good partner. israel is a good partner in this fight. the united am rat emirates. >> another country that should be a partner in the fight against isis is a nato member. >> turkey is a part of the effort to address the flow of foreign fighters yet the vast majority of foreign fighters are flowing through turkey into syria so they just need to do more and control their own border. >> kurds consistently beaten isis at every turn. should we be doing more to help the kurds? >> we're getting the support they need in the current fight to them. we're doing it through the iraqi government because what we're looking in the long run is a unified iraq. that's the best prospect of success. >> whether iraq can survive as a unified shia sunni united state
but the islamic state despite the effort to cut the finances the richest terror organization on the planet. >> they're able to fund from extortion, kidnappings, the black market oil, selling of antiquities, robbing banks. >> u.s. treasury departmentest ma its brought in as much as $50 million a month selling oil on the black market. >> we'll need to squeeze the nations in the region to assure there's no black market for the oil to be sold. >> is the solution going to require tens of thousands of american troops on the ground in either sir what or iraq? >> my perspective is long-term success requires forces on the ground for long-term stability and i believe that u.s. capabilities unique u.s. capabilities are going to be equally important to be successful. >> but some say a ground war with the u.s. and european troops is exactly what isis wants. >> i do think isis is dedicated to what in this sort of sub field we call hot wiring the
apocalypse. i think the beheadings, the burnings, as with the jordanian pilot, the horrible things they do, i think they're trying to spark a ground war. >> the more there's a war like this, the minorities have no place. >> reverend al shafi is devoted to rescuing partners. we founded one free world international. he converted from islamic to christianity at 18 years old. he was in prison and tortured in a prison for declaring his faith in jesus christ. so christians and jews and ot r others are caught in the cross fire? >> that's correct. >> since 2014, an effort to cleanse the caliphate, isis death squads viciously murdered tens of thousands of christians and yazidis in northern iraq. most captured men and boys
eliminated but thousands of young women and girls taken as trophies of war. >> we know that isisyazidis, christians, young women, turns hem into quote wives or sex slaves s. that doctrine within the koran? >> of course it is. it is doctrine in the koran. you can have a slave. sometime one of the girls and i recall -- she was 9 years old. that they used to rape her 20 times a day. we have succeeded in rescuing a number of those women. >> describe without creating a vulnerability for the process how you go about finding them and getting them hrough the relt we have with the kurdish tribes that we will be able to go across the borders to isis territory and we will be able to save and rescue some of the girls back. we was able to locate for
markets where they sell the girls. most of them in mosul and some of them in syria, these girls have different price depend on her beauty, depend on her age, depend on she is virgin or not. so the price can go from $4,000 to $2,000. this operation bankrupted our organization but i would tell you something. i will sell my suit, my furniture, everything i own to get these girls out. and i have no regrets about it. up close with the kurdish peshmerga as they fight isis in northern iraq. yes, we are twins. when i went on to ancestry, i just put in the name of my parents and my grandparents. i was getting all these leaves and i was going back generation after generation. you start to see documents and you see

the autonomous region of curd stan about the size of texas in the northeast corner of iraq, it shares borders with turkey, syria and iran and rich in oil, natural gas and extraordinary history. >> the kurds are the largest group of the people in the world without a state. >> today it's devastated thanks to the syrian civil war and isis. against all odds, the kurdish peshmerga are the only military force to consistently beat isis. >> the peshmerga are an incredible fighting force. they certainly have the resolve and will to fight and they have been strong partners in the fight against isis. >> peshmerga means those who face death. since isis invaded the territory if august 2014, they have fought
nearly daily battles in the struggle to retake their land and they have been doing so with little to no help from the u.s. this is the front line of the mosul front for the peshmerga contending with isis right at the bottom of this hill. what do they have to fight with? ancient ak-47s, a handful of m-16s, tanks from the soviet era '50s and why? because we haven't given them the weapons they need to fight and win against isis. this is an american humvee? >> translator: they left all this behind. the other one they took it from isis. >> we gave this to the iraqi army and the iraqi army, the cowards fled and isis captured it from them and then you captured it from isis. >> translator: yeah. the cowards left it and the champions took it.
>> it would have been shorter to give it to you to begin with. >> they can see the entire front line from here. geographically in control of the entire area. isis positions are. >> enemy, daesh, yes. >> the smoke that's out there on the horizon? >> yes. >> from an air strike? >> yes. >> the coalition forces. >> do you have any friendly troops, any peshmerga forward west of that line right here? >> you see the line over there. that's the defensive trench. there are no civilians in this place anymore. >> as seen in the photos, the peshmerga have proof that isis is using chemical weapons against the kurds just as saddam hussein did when he was in power.
this is one enormous refugee camp. >> nice to see you. >> thank you very much. heland sal is program manager of the refugee camp sheltering thousands of syrians. how many live in this camp, just this one camp? >> yeah. the number of the families, there are about 5,500 families and the individuals around 30, 30,000 individuals, why. >> everything we have seen so far, there's an enormous burden on the government of kurg stan, the regional government. >> on the shoulders of the kri government, why. >> american aid, government -- >> yeah, why. >> -- goes to baghdad. but it doesn't get here. >> yeah. and i think if they directly coordinate with the government of curd stan it would be better. >> the next crucial battle in iraq will be the fight to liberate mosul. you see mosul retaken in the near future any.
>> i think it's going to be sometime. mosul has started and we deal it at a pace to be successful. >> if baghdad decides to attack mosul, to liberate it from daesh, you could have another 500,000 refugees. >> it doesn't matter how many here. we'll be at their service because kurd stan has a huge heart and whatever the kurdish people have experienced they understand the situation of the idps and that's why we're always supporting them. >> thank you. coming up, inside the worst terror attack on american soil since 9/11. and i'd like to make a dep-- vo: it happens so often, you almost get used to it. we got this. vo: which is why being put first takes some getting used to. ♪ nationwide is on your side nationwide is the exclusive insurance partner of plenti.

downing of a russian airliner. isis also came to america with a largest terror attack since 9/11. these are some of the faces of people arrested on u.s. soil for helping to support or plot terrorism in the name of isis. since 2014, more than 80 have been arrested. a teenage girl trying to leave colorado to join isis in syria. a man who ambushed a philadelphia police officer. and a man who's now under investigation for his role in an isis-inspired mass shooting. >> we are not doing enough on the home front to defeat isis. >> if you look at the history of this city, we're largely a blue collar town. we're on the suburbs of los angeles. we are about 215,000 people and, you know, we're kind of a poor town. >> the chief of police in san bernardino, california. >> this city of many ways struggled for many, many years.
the primary employer in town is government. we don't have a target like new york city and the world trade center. >> although no one knew it, there was a target. and on december 2nd, 2015, terror came to san bernardino during a holiday party for 80 people at the inland regional center. >> about 11:00, there were two gunmen that burst through the doors of the con frent krer enathey opened fire on the people that were in that room. the gunmen in this case using semiautomatic assault rifle ar-15 style weapons. there was an immediate police response. the first police unit there within four minutes of the 911 call. the seconds had escaped before the first units had arrived. 14 people were killed. 22 people were wounded. >> before their aescape, the two shooters left behind an explosive device on the table. >> it was essentially a pipe
bomb device attached to a remote control. it didn't go up. >> substantial enough it would have done considerable damage? >> would have done some damage inside that room and probably caused significant injuries. >> in the chaos following the shootings, a hunch by one of the witnesses led law enforcement to their first suspect. 28-year-old sayed farook who worked for the county as a food inspector. easterning $53,000 he had a county issued iphone. >> one particular person in the room that knew mr. farook had told one of our officers that although the suspects were masked coming back into the room, there was something about his -- the suspect's body language and stature he thought wab it was sayed farook. he was at the event. 10:30 in the morning he left a. couple of employees noted he left and they thought that was odd. >> the real surprise was that the second shooter was farook's
wife, 29-year-old tashfeen malik. born in pack ston to a wealthy family of landowners, malik moved to saudi arabia with her family. she returned to pakistan in 2007 to study pharmacy here at this university. after returning to saudi arabia, malik met farook on a dating website. farook went there to meet her in person in 2013. they were later married there and flew back to the united states together in july 2014. malik was admitted to the country on a fiancee visa. america's current visa waiver program can allow extremists to slip in undetected. many continue to exploit the fiancee visa for sham marriages or disappear after overstaying a visa. >> 30 countries in europe, fill out a form, get on an airplane and come to america for 90 days and makes us less safe.
there's gaping holes in the program. >> clearly it's golden passport to the u.s. >> frank salifo is director. >> we are looking at ways to tighten up the visa waiver program. >> we do know that shortly before this incident took place there was a pledge of allegiance from her to al baghdadi and isis. the information that we have would indicate she had a lot of idealistic component coming the country. >> they lived in nearby redlands with their baby daughter. the 62-year-old mother who worked in the building department of a major california hospital also lived with them. the morning of the massacre, they left their 6-month-old daughter in the care of the grandmother. >> shots fired. >> eventually, we saw him near the redlands address. as soon as that marked unit fallen in behind the suspect
car, the back passenger who turned out to be tashfeen malik opened fire at the officers behind. >> all hell broke loose as the couple engaged in a wild gun battle with police wielding the ar-15 style rifles. the officers fired 380 ounds and the shooters got off 75. two police were wounded, both farook and his wife were killed. >> i don't know that we know why they chose this event. these were folks that six months before thrown a baby shower for him and had given him and his wife gifts for the birth of their child. >> during the search of the apartment, alongside the baby toys, police discovered a bomb factory in the grarch. 19 pipe bomb components and thousands of rounds of ammunition. the first seeds of the san bernardino terrorist attack sown in 2004 right here on this quiet street in riverside, california. that's when a young enrique marquez moved into th right next door to the family of
sayed farook. farook lived here with his mother, older brother and two sisters. when they weren't working on cars together, farook indoctrinated marquez into the ways of islam. soon he began to frequent the mosque in nearby corona. no the years leading up to the shooters, they discussed radical islam and listened to tapes of the cleric anwar anlaki. >> there's seven degrees of connection to him in almost every case. >> in two -- 2012, enrique marquez bought materials and two of the rifles that were used in the san bernardino shootings. marquez quifilled out the information saying they were for him. isn't that illegal? >> illegal in the sense of a straw purchase, absolutely. we know that back in 2012, they
had discussed these are the plots to attack a community college in our area and also launch an attack on a freeway here in the inland empire, as well. >> dabiq, the islamic state's propaganda magazine, quickly gave a shoutout to the terrorist couple. >> it opens first two pages of the magazine by lauding the san bernardino shooters and particular laud for husband and wife team engaged in jihad and heeded the call of al baghdadi to attack the crusaders in their home larnd. >> another person in san bernardino who came under fbi scrutiny was this man, a cleric at this mosque. allegedly a haven for islamic fundamentali fundamentalists. in december, it was reported that the cleric had exchanged nearly 40 text messages with farook in the weeks leading up to the july 2015 terrorist attack on two military sites in
chattanooga, tennessee. now a legal battle is raging over the authority's attempt to crack farook's government-issued iphone. despite the frenzy of texting, the cleric and colleagues now claim they barely knew farook. >> about a month ago he started. we did not think of him. he's not really local. >> the investigation into the san bernardino attacks continues. in february, when the fbi raided the home of farook's older brother, thick envelopes and a computer were among the items removed from the premises. at the same time, enrique marquez sat in a jail cell awaiting a july 2016 trial on terrorism charges. >> the fbi said they didn't have any connection with domestic or foreign terrorist organizations. >> you have isis which has said go, do your attacks, do what you're going to do in our name which is added a whole new fear
in this country in many ways. in this country in many ways. why are so many americans in this country in many ways. why are so many americans if time is infinite, why is there never enough of it? a john deere 1 family tractor with quik-park lets you attach and go. imatch quick-hitch gives you more time for what you love. so it takes less work to do more work. autoconnect drive-over mower deck? done. they're not making any more land. but there's plenty of time if you know where to look. all john deere compact tractors come with an industry-best, six-year, no-cost powertrain warranty.
this clean was like pow! can a toothpaste do everything well? it added this other level of clean to it. it just kinda like...wiped everything clean. 6x cleaning my teeth are glowing. they are so white. 6x whitening i actually really like the 2 steps. step 1, cleans step 2, whitens. every time i use this together, it felt like... ...leaving the dentist office. crest hd. 6x cleaning, 6x whitening i would switch to crest hd over what i was using before.
the threat posed by isis to the united states is growing in terms of scale and scope. >> isis has been calling for attacks for well over a year against westerners, particularly americans. and they feel like, of course, they succeeded. >> past year we saw three successful terrorist attacks on u.s. soil. saw tennessee in chattanooga. obviously san bernardino and garland, texas. >> but why are more americans heeding the islamic state's call to the battlefield. >> there's a single profile and unfortunately there isn't it's the ideology. >> many analysts like to prokus on the fact that isis on twitter, snapchat and whatever
else and they put out glossy magazines and videos and that's process. that process would not appeal to people unless the substance appealed to people. and the substance, again, is a literal understanding of islam. >> many say the united states efforts to counter isis' deadly narrative have been weak unlike the successful campaigns in world war ii against japan and germany and the cold war with the soviet union. >> we had froo radio free europe. >> pierces the iron curtain with the truth. >> countering infiltrate with capitalism, promoting freedom. >> we've ceded the battlefield and we need to push back. the same rigorous planning that goes into the war fighting efforts needs to go into our cyber efforts. >> his program on extremism team at george washington university
tried to understand the recent surge in american jihadis. they released the report. isis in america. from retweets to raqqah. hughes is one of the authors. >> since march 2014, we have had at least 80 arrests of people charged we sis related charges and they run the gamet, old, young, rich, poor, black, white. over a six-month period, we looked at 300 accounts of american isis supporters and we found twitter is the platform of choice. >> here are some of the images they found on social media. >> you have an account where they're just posting out quotes from anwar alaki. this is an image a lot online. >> one of the most interesting things was how brash everything is. >> sarah jokes is a research associate. >> this is a foreign fighter
from i believe somewhere in europe. and he has been with isis. actually comes from tumblr. a girl forces over and over again. in love with this guy. it's totally bizarre to see this in the frame of a terrorist organization. >> isis has taken it to a whole new level. this is an engaged social media platform that can bring together like minded individuals in the far flung corners of the internet and the deep web. >> people haven't just passively viewing the material. they reach out to radicalize and recruiter online and get the materials they need or get the phone number in turkey who to call when you land. >> once they realize they got somebody, they'll go into what we call dark space in areas that we can't even monitor on the internet even if we have a court order to understand what they're directing and either inspiring
or directing the small and medium-scale attacks which are much more difficult to stop. >> encryption made it nearly impossible for law enforcement to track terrorists who have gone dark on the web. to do so will require more cooperation from u.s. tech companies. >> and we need to build trust between silicon valley and d.c. and ultimately the american people and i think it's a trust deficit that's impeding further cooperation because, yes, there's a freedom of speech issue. but you know what? there's also a terrorism issue here. so i mean, basically, you have three options. we want to collect information to get a sense of who their networks are. you don't want to shut down all of the facilities. two, we can actually start shutting down this information and we need to do more there. quite honestly, the american viewer, the fox viewer has a role here potentially to identify, flag information and

moderate movement. >> the muslim world is dominated by thugs and dictators. we can only defeat them if we start to take back the mantle of islam. >> the idea of the islamic state is a bad idea. >> born in bombay, india, nomadi came to the united states at age four, grew up in west virginia. >> bad idea for the 21 century. bad idea for christians and jews and muslims who do not want to live according to the strict interpretation of islam. and it's a bad idea for women. >> the goal of changing the hard line interpretation became a very personal one after attacks on september 11th. >> i was a reporter for the "wall street journal." i went to pakistan. by colleagues came to visit me. he went off during interview,
from which he was kidnapped and murdered by men who practiced this interpretation of islam, and very much the ideology of the ice lambic state today. what i realize personally is that it's my duty as a muslim, my duty to stand up against these extremism. today, she's a member of a movement started by dr. suni joser. >> it was started in december, 2015. a group of us as muslims stood together with this declaration and what we're trying to do is be the change we want to see in the world. what we assert here is idea of islam meaning peace, human rights. >> so many of us who have been doing similar work, i call them, sent them notes. said let's have a summit of us
