lindsey graham is expected to lift a hold in the senate on a key piece of legislation as early as monday. graham met with three weddos from the 9/11 attack. the women talked about how difficult it has been getting answers over the past almost 15 years and made the case if they could sue saudi arabia that might help them find out what led up to their husbands dying that day. 15 of the 199/11 hijackers were saudi. aides say graham wants to assess the impact. after the meeting we spoke with the women about their message to graham. >> if saudi arabia funded those attacks, decimated lower manhattan and killed 3,000 people it would mean justice finally for our loved ones that died that day. >> it's about making our nation safer. so we want to use the lawsuit as a deterrent for future funders
of terrorists. >> this was a big issue before president obama's visit to saudi arabia last week. there have been bipartisan calls to declassify the so-called 28 pages which still remain classified. it's believed that the 9/11 hijackers had support from the government, wealthy people and charities in saudi arabia. as for the ability to sue a foreign government, the white house has expressed concern about the impact, if other countries take similar steps against the u.s. >> the whole notion of sovereign immunity is at stake. and it has more significant consequence force the united states than any other country. >> the power of any one senator to slam the brakes on a particular bill. shannon? >> mike emmanuel live on the hill. thank you, mike. house lawmakers hammered the administration today over the release of thousands of criminal aliens eligible for deportation.
the house oversight committee wants to know why over a three-year period more than 86,000 criminal aliens have been released in the american public and point to statistics that show thousands of them go on to commit more crimes. the director of immigration and customs enforcement defend the agency saying the report was politically manipulated. a look inside a training ac
from paris to brussels, even san bernardino, the threat of terror is widening. with the shift in threats comes a dramatic change in the way the fbi is training the next generation of agents. with new emphasis on intelligence and analysis. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge with exclusive access to how the bureau trains for danger. >> can you identify yourself as fbi. she is armed and dangerous it
may be a deadly force situation. fox news went inside the fbi training academy in quantico. virginia. >> fbi, stand away from the car, put your hands up. put your other hand up. the suspect played by an actor is down. but the vehicle may be rigged to blow. >> we had the student come up. they would clear the car. car is clear. and covering. at this point i could come in and handcuff. >> with a growing terrorism threat, these essential skills matter even more. >> to me the give-away was no eye contact. right? >> yes. >> as she's being given commands, but not complying, that's an indication there's something going on. most people go -- what do you need? and they comply immediately. >> no agent wants to draw a weapon. but sometimes there is no choice. >> seat belt off, open the door. >> and nearly 1,000 agents and intelligence analysts will graduate this year. but for the first time since
1908, the train something fundamentally different. >> it is a biblical shift. >> assistant director for training mark morgan said the old program had agents who ran field investigations in one classroom and intelligence analysts in another. >> when they would get done with their training separately, the expectation was they would go into the field and expect them to be integrated. >> this exclusive video takes you inside the fbi academy. where for the first time agents and analysts now learn side by side. they have a better appreciation of each other's duties and responsibility. >> the fbi director james comey speaks often and publicly about the intersection between intelligence and investigation. >> sometimes it's like searching for a needle in a haystack and the great fear that dominates our lives is that the need sl going to reair peer at a train station wearing a suicide vest. >> a familiar scenario that played out recently if brussels. the speed at which americans are
radicalized demands close coordination. >> i'll use the director's basketball analogy. a guard can't be a center and a center can't be a forward. but it's necessary that they all come together. >> this live-fire exercise teaches agents how to safely handle a weapon within close quarters. most shots are fired within seven yards of a suspect. in june 2015, an isis suspect was shot dead outside a boston cvs, after he threatened local cops and fbi agents with a knife. after this hostage situation at a paris concert hall last fall where several isis gunmen killed 90, this training exercise takes on new meaning. it use as 25-pound battering ram to shatter the lock. >> this slyke the achilles heel for the door. >> exactly. sometimes they go on one strike, most times they don't. >> in a threat environment where al qaeda and isis are leveraging technology to tap new recruits,
the fbi is evolving, too. >> one of the most important ways we stay ahead of the threat is integration. without that integration, we won't be successful. >> in quantity ccquantico, virg. catherine herridge. tomorrow we learn how recruits are tackling hard issues facing the agency, like rebuilding trust with the public after riots in baltimore and ferguson. not just men, but women, too, could soon be requested to register for the military draft. the house armed services committee backs a bill in a close vot months after the defense dpatment lifted all gend gender-based restrictions in combat. what may have been done with good intent turned out to add to the already-long list of troubles for veterans affairs. the va inspector general found management in a regional office in kansas told staff to erroneously list medical conditions for dozens of patients in an effort apparently
to speed up the claims process. the incorrect data may have resulted in veterans not receiving the correct information regarding their claims. the wichita office agreed with the report's finding and says it plans to implement changes. is the gop warming up to the idea of a trump nomination? we'll discuss it with the panel, next.
i think the party is seeing me that way. i'm getting calls that as i said, you wouldn't believe. i'm getting calls from people that i really can't even know how they can do it. because they've said such horrible things about me and now they want to join the team. >> donald trump talking about now that he's going to be acting like the presumptive nominee. let's talk about it with the panel. judge andrew napolitano, and julie pace, white house correspondent for the "associated press" and syndicated columnist, charles krauthammer. >> judge, i'll start with you.
is it smart, he hasn't locked up the nomination but absent something unforeseeable. he'll get close before cleveland. >> it's smart of him to portray himself as the presumptive nominee. that generate an aura of inevitabili inevitability. in his case, i think it has caused significant people like senator mitch mcconnell to look at him and lay low in their criticism. we only have five days to go until indiana. i know there's a theory that the "new york times" put out this afternoon that he doesn't need indiana. if he wins indiana effectively it will be over. if he loses indiana he's got to spend all his time in new jersey and california. there does seem to be a feeling in washington and my colleagues may have a better feel for this than i, since i'm stationed in new york, that it's time to consider how the campaign would
look. how the down-ticket would fare and how the establishment would be involved with a ticket headed by i know this seemed impossible to think five months ago, donald trump. >> julie, he is making an effort in his campaign to build relationships. he's got today about a dozen congressional endorsements, but the folks inside these meetings he's had inside capitol hill say the numbers are growing and he's trying to build relationships here in washington, what do you make of that? >> i think you're starting to see among some republicans a noticeable shift in how they view trump. there's a handful that have come out and endorsed him. there's a growing number that are coming to terms with the prospect of him being the nominee. coming to terms with that they would support him if he's the nominee. i don't want to oversell it because it's not as if you're seeing a huge rush to back him. republicans are saying if he is going to be our candidate, some of us may feel like we need to line up behind him a and try to
get elected. >> in the meantime we have the former house speaker, john boehner, captured saying some not so flattering things about the man who is still trying to challenge donald trump, senator ted cruz. here's a bit of what the former speaker had to say. >> lucifer in the flesh. >> i've never worked with a more miserable [ bleep ] over my dead body would he be president. >> the former top republican of the house, not long ago saying over my dead body with ted cruz, a current sitting senator of his own party, be president. >> cruz is not the warm and cuddly type. i don't think there's been a candidate, serious presidential candidate, could be since nixon. for whom people had, let me say less warm feelings, but nixon did win. he showed that you don't have to be popular to win.
nobody really liked him. but nonetheless he was trusted. with cruz, look, he's got -- his appeal has never been personal. it's always been ideological. i'm the conservative and now he says trump is not. so -- that's what it all hinges on. it's not a very strong argument in this particular year where the issues which divides voters is not ideology. but insider-dom. how much are you anti-establishment how populist are you. but in the end of the movement towards trump being the nominee i think we're going to wait until indiana. indiana is the place. if cruz loses, it's over for him. he may stay in the race like a wounded deer, but he's in the going to go anywhere. if he wins, he lives to fight another day. the irony is if he manages that, it's a very narrow path and extremely unlikely.
if he manages that, trump has to win on the first ballot. >> cruz responded to some of the boehner remarks. a lot of folks in his camp think it's actually a plus for the senator. here's a bit of cruz's response. >> i've never worked with john boehner. truth of the matter is i don't know the man. i've met john boehner two or three times in my life. what boehner is angry with me for is standing with the american people if you're happy with john boehner as speaker of the house, you want a president like john boehner, donald trump is your man. >> there's been an angt in washington, so judge, does it work for him. >> i think that ted cruz welcomes that comment. john boehner is the exact type of middle-of-the-road democrat-lite congressional republican leadership that has given the perception that the republicans in washington are impotent and ted cruz, along with a couple of others in the senate and a gaggle in the house. held john boehner's feet to the
fire. he was effectively deposed by his own party as the leader of the republicans in the house. this works well when you're holding yourself out as the most conservative presidential nomination since barry goldwater. >> cruz is in a moment where his strategy is trying to unite the republican party. trying to cast trump as more of the outsider, more damaging than him. so to have someone who is still popular in a certain segment of the republican party. donors and elites to be fair. for him to have that come out at a time where he is trying to promote the message of unity, i don't think is helpful to his effort. >> what's so odd is if the criticism of boehner is welcome, because he represents the faction of the party that gave up, was moderate, conceded, was in the end, not conservative enough, the choice of the party up until now. the popular choice, is a guy who isn't even conservative at all. it's a very odd year in which you rebel against the
establishment. as being insufficiently ideological. and your choice is a guy who is not ideological at all. >> and boehner made a point of saying some nice things about trump. he talked about them texting and golfing together. he said nice things about hillary clinton. but went on to say he would not vote for cruz. >> i don't know that he has most respectful, any juice any more. he may with some of the elites. he was in palo alto, california, way off of cruz's radar screen at this point. i think that ted cruz made the most of it. >> i think he's been squeezed dry. >> cruz or boehner? >> boehner. >> well we'll continue that debate during the commercial. next up, the war on terror, are we really winning the fight against isis? we'll talk about it. i jumped at the chance to take the dna test through ancestry and my results ended up being african, european and asian. it was great because it confirmed what i
p?pyouto get the help you'refar looking for. that's why at xfinity we're opening up more stores closer to you. where you can use all of our latest products and technology. and find out how to get the most out of your service. so when you get home, all you have to do is enjoy it. we're doing everything we can to give you the best experience possible. because we should fit into your life. not the other way around. we're required to submit reprogramming requests, as you all know, to the four congressional defense committees. and, so far, on these phones, we have received differing responses on differing time lines and sometimes with conflicting demands. >> and as we have seen from paris to san bernardino to brussels, this threat is
increasingly capable of targeting us as many of us predicted that it would. and, yet, at this strategic level we always seem to be a step behind a day late, and a dollar short. >> discussion on the hill today about how we're really doing in the fight against isis. let's talk about it with our panel. charles, i will start with you, because vice president boyden made a surprise trip to iraq today. it is seen as an attempt to bolster the prime minister there and their efforts to fight isis. the discussions continue. >> it's not even about the fight with isis. it's the fact that the government in iraq on which we have put a lot of emphasis, we are supporting the abadi government which succeeded the al maliki government. iraqi of iran, persecuted the sunnis and sort of destroyed what we had built. the government right now, abady is falling apart. there have been huge demonstrations and al-sadr,
this is the radical shiite militia leader who killed a lot of americans during the car, who is an instrument of iran. is he now back. he disappeared for several years. he is back. is he leading demonstrations against the green zone. and the fear is that the government is going to collapse or that somebody like him is going to inherit the same. what you weep about is to see the vice president there. he had been given the iraq portfolio in 2009 when obama came. in his job was to manage the elections at the time. to end up that are there was a pro-american candidate. he failed. and his other job was to work out the balance of forces agreement. he failed again. and now he is back. doesn't look good. >> yeah. and he was last there, julie, 2011, i was, and a lot had transpired since then. you mentioned the protest. abadie tried to do some things, changing around the cabinet members and those kind of things there have been all kinds of protests
and soldiers who had been out on some of the battle fields regarding isis had been called back to handle the crowds in baghdad. very complicated situation. >> it's enormous problem. you can look at the white house strategy, the military strategy for taking on isis and quibble with a lot of it. but the administration was right in one sense which is that you can't just have a military solution. you have to focus on the political conditions in iraq. that has proven to be just as difficult as going after isis on the battlefield. just a reminder that we are dealing with a country that, one, does not have a long history of democracy. withtwo, is factions that just do not want to be together in one country. you are trying to keep a country together that often doesn't want to be together. and if you're vice president joe biden, i don't think you are in iraq right now and looking at this situation as something that's going to be a favorable part of your legacy. >> so, when i woke up this morning and learned that he was in iraq, here the way my brain works. hillary is going to be
indicted and he is trying to bolster himself to take the democratic nomination. my colleagues are correct. this is the last thing he wants to be associated with personally, iraq is such a miserable failure. the president's policies against isis are 250 here. 500 there. but they are not really boots on the ground. they don't really have guns, they don't really shoot. none of that stuff is going to stop the kinds of things that john mccain is worried about. because this administration doesn't have the stomach for it the congress doesn't want to declare war. the american public is not ready for the type of massive land assault that's necessary. but something needs to be done. sending joe biden there, to try and rehabilitate what has become a political military cultural religion disaster is not going to move the dial. >> what's so tragic here is obama himself said in december 2011, as our troops were leaving, we are leaving behind a sovereign, stable, self-governing iraq. and we were. what we needed was to
maintain a presence as we did in korea and germany after japan -- japan and germany and korea later after those wars. we didn't. and that's the reason we have almost no influence. it's why biden has been away for half a decade. iran is ruling the roost. and as you say, the factions in the country are completely disunited. they were run by monthly can maliki who increased the divisions. now we are in a position where we really have no cards to play. we had all these assets on the ground, including control of the air, we gave them up gratuitously and right now we have no cards. >> well, and julie, we don't have much time to get to it but on another foreign policy front we have provocations by russia, the bombing of the hospital, the medical facility in syria. there are a lot of fires to be put out. >> there are. i think it really raises the stakes for the nominees of both these parties. with isis, this is a problem
that the next president will inherit, whoever they are. they do owe it to the american people to lay out a strategy for what they would do differently. >> so if muqtada al is is sadr takes over the government are we going to invade again? absolutely not. based on what he said in downtown d.c. the other day. >> still parsing the contours of his foreign policy and speech and more to come, panel, i'm sure. panel, please stick around. that is it for the panel. take a look at how scary technology can be in real life. [vet] two yearly physicals down. martha and mildred are good to go. here's your invoice, ladies. a few stops later, and it looks like big ollie is on the mend. it might not seem that glamorous having an old pickup truck for an office... or filling your days looking down the south end of a heifer, but...i wouldn't have it any other way. look at that, i had my best month ever.
but to video it as well. >> oh there's cars coming. oh, there's cars. [ laughter ] >> put me back for me to drive. oh dear jesus. i could never -- awe, awe. where we going? >> oh, boy. if you have ever ridden with charles, it's a little bit like that. [ laughter ] watch out. if he offers you a ride, you get in at your own risk. but you get where you are going and get there fast. thanks, charles. that's it for "special report," good night from washington. greta goes "on the record" right now. >> it is friday april 29th and this is a fox news lart. the violence outside of a done
na na -- donald trump rallies. >> our rallies are the safest place to be on earth, believe me. >> they hit the campaign hard. >> robbers and kidnapers all set free from the u.s. prison? the fallout ice is facing for releasing thousands of illegal immigrants who have rap sheets. >> both coffee and wine are good for you. good news on a friday. how do you like that? "fox & friends first" starts right now.
>> you are watching "fox & friends first". i am heather nauert. great to be with you today. >> thank you for wrapping up your week. smashes cop cars blocking traffic leaving a car bloody. >> riot gear trying to calm the out of control situation and arresting 2,000 people. robert gray is live for us in california. >> the damaged crowd is stamped including one police cruiser with messages on cop cars and punching tires on to suv's. throwing rocks at motorists waving american and mexican flags while shouting opposition to the republican frontrunner. several cars drove wildly
