tv   The Kelly File  FOX News  May 19, 2016 6:00pm-7:01pm PDT

6:00 pm
mawkish when writing. that's it for us tonight. ms. megyn is up next. we are definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight, new indications terrorism may be behind the loss of a jetliner over the mediterranean sea. and there are growing concerns something similar could happen to a u.s. bound plane. welcome to the kelly file. i'm sandra smith if for megyn kelly. tonight we're hearing at least one major u.s. airport l.a.x. is already stepping up security while off the coast of egypt, crews are frantically looking for signs of egyptair flight 804 and its passengers. this video of the search effort was taken earlier today. the plane was en route from paris to cairo late last night. 66 souls on board at the time
6:01 pm
including two babies. but shortly before the plane was due to land it's reported to have made abrupt turns and lost altitude then it vanished from radar. hours later it became clear something was terribly wrong. but exactly what caused this flight to disappear is in question tonight. sources tell fox news that no explosion was detected by satellites in the area. still the house homeland security chairman says this case reminds him of an attack last fall that took down another plane over egypt. >> the threat indicators are likely that we're dealing with another type of attack an insider, or a bomb could have been placed on that aircraft either one using a timing device that would have started out of cairo or whether it was luggage put in the cargo hold. there's so many defor chaur flights coming out of charles de
6:02 pm
gaulle into the united states. and if this was compromised, the big if but if it was, that's a game changer. >> chase gallagher joins us with the latest from the west coast newsroom. chase, good evening. >> airplanes crash one one of three reasons. french egyptian and u.s. authorities all believe that was deliberate likely an act of terrorism. but for now there is little evidence to support that claim. we know that right before egyptair flight 804 disappeared from rart the a 320 was cruising at 38,000 feet and suddenly made an abrupt 90-degree left-hand turn. then during a rapid dissent there was a 360-degree turn to the right, an indication of a struggle in the cockpit or a cataclysmic event. and yet multiple officials tell fox news that satellites in the area used to detect missile launches did not pick up an
6:03 pm
explosion where the plane went missing. much is being made of the fact that there wrouz no distress call. but when airasia crashed in 2015 and when air france crash into the atlantic ocean in 2009 neither issued a may day call. pilots are taught ug to aviate before they communicate, in other words fly first, talk later. the a 320 is believed to have crashed halfway between the greek island of creek and egypt's coastline. the water is anywhere from 8 to 12,000 feet deep. even if they find wreckage and debris, recovering the black boxes could take time. investigators point out that if it was a bomb exexplosion leaves its own unique signature, like dimples, burn marks and gas remnant, clues only the reck aj would hold. for now the investigators are
6:04 pm
scanning the passenger list and they're also investigating why three of the 56 passengers on board were security officers. although it's unclear if all three were on duty. >> trace, thank you. now this particular plane was actually on its fifth journey of the day, flying both to and from cairo making stops in africa and europe before it ultimately vanished. some analysts suggesting someone on the ground may have been up to no good. lieutenant colonel toni schafer was a cia intel top tif who worked for boeing phantom, worth looking into airline terror threats. he he's with the london policy. dr. sebastian gorka is the major general, distinguished chair of military theory and the author of defeating jihad. colonel schafer i want to start with you. based on what we know at this
6:05 pm
moment you heard trace's report and base on what we know about the activity of that airplane that it zigzagged, took a couple of sharp turns before there was detection of it plunging in altitude what can you conclude from that? >> something catastrophic happened nap's the only thing we know for sure. the pattern of the flight where it went and looking at the flight that a russian airliner was brought down under a similar circumstance tells me that the likelihood is that there was insider threat. somewhere along this line someone penetrated security got physical access to the airplane and was able to put a device on it. the device coming out of the russian aircraft was one that was altitude detonated. i think this had to be timed being that it made several stops. we have to look across the board. if the policies of every airport that we fly to by the fact that someone, some radical is going to find a way to put something
6:06 pm
on an aircraft this is no small issue. >> what about that though. dr. gorka, i want to bring you in here. when we look at the threat level here in the u.s. and l.a.x. is raising their security posture tonight, you look at the fact that these people are coming in from airports and airlines across the world and they're coming in to the united states and they didn't pass through the same sort of rigorous security measures that we employ here in the united states. where are we as far as the overall threat of flying? is it safe to fly? >> well if you read the publications of the jihadi groups that wish to troy america, they're explicit. they talk about how this is still an incredibly attractive target. think about this. you have defenseless civilians, a high concentration of people who cannot defend themselves and we have thousands, tens of
6:07 pm
thousands of flights every day. and in many cases, from airports that are not up to the standards of the united states or our western allies. if you're talking about landing in other parts of north africa or elsewhere, we have no way to guarantee the people with access to the airframes on the tarmac have been vetted in ways that provide confidence to the people who are getting on those planes. >> and mark you look at what chairman mccall had to say about this today. and while he, he made sure to say that there could have been many things that happened here he's not rulinterrorism. he went on to suggest that this could have been an inside job and that a bomb could have been placed on this aircraft. >> sure. >> i mean this is coming from our house homeland security chairman. it's a scary thought. >> it is a scary thought. but also it's very important to recognize that while it's important that we have defensive
6:08 pm
measures, the way you protest the terrorists -- we had a mantra with the bush administration. we're going to fight them over there so we don't have to face them here. we have stopped fighting them over there. the amount has been so reluctant to fight them over there that they're starting to get closer to us. pa if you think about it since barack obama ignored all of the threats about isis there was a cancer that was allowed to grow in iraq and syria. it's spread throughout the world. and since 2014 when they established the caliphate, isis has carried out 75 attacks in 20 countries. they're in libya yemen, saudi arabia tu nearby sha, pakistan, nigeria, afghanistan and they're now in paris and brussels. this therterrorist threat is growing. and if we want to protect our country we need better airport security but we need to take the fight to them. >> colonel schafer what we're
6:09 pm
reporting tonight, you heard from trace that the satellites didn't pick up any indication that there was an explosion that took place. does that based on your theory that something horrible happened here does that help you to rule anything out? >> no. the fact is that the aircraft went down in a catastrophic fashion. we don't know necessarily if the aircraft went off down below. i have heard others say they saw a blast effect. i think the jury is out on there. we have to look at how this happened. i was reading an article about what the investigation entails. we've got to look at the policies. look, we now have a situation where we have an active threat. we know it's there. we have outlying airports which do not have adequate security. we've got to take this sere seriously. yourp and other places have really bad policies in place that allowed networks to establish themselves.
6:10 pm
we've got to look at all levels of policy. this is not simply the fact that an airplane that was bombed went down. something led to the bad results and that is bad policy. >> dr. gorka you say there's significance in the places that are involved here. that this was a flight leaving paris going to cairo. why is the place of significance to you? >> well great significance to jihadis. parry has been attacked multiple times in recent months and don't forget egypt, the destination of the flight is the front line in this war. egypt president sisi has declared war. they're heavily active killing police officers and civilians. this lends credence to the possibility that this is a terrorist attack. let me compliment what marc said. marc gave an impressive survey
6:11 pm
of the jihadi threat across the globe. your viewers need to understand the threat is already here. since the caliphate was declared by isis we've arrested or killed 98 people in america linked to isis. 30% of them have wanted to kill americans on u.s. soil. it's not a question of if. it is a question of when. and let's not forget an isis fighter who died in the middle east as a jihadi used to work at the minneapolis airport with access to airframes. this is the reality of the threat. it's not just 8,000 miles away. it's already here. >> marc what do you make of the white house response to this tonight. they're basically saying we can't conclude anything yet and they really haven't used the word terrorism quite yet. hillary clinton has by the way. >> and on top of that they immediately went into defensive crouch started listing the setbacks that they've had in
6:12 pm
iraq. that's a little bit like if you get a cancer diagnosis that you've got lung cancer and you do nothing about it for a couple of years and then all of the sudden you start treating it and the tumor is reduced. yeah but it's spread to all of the other organs of your body. the cancer of isis has spread all across the world. it's spread in europe. if they were able to get a bomb on to a plane at charles de gaulle airport, there are hundreds of planes leaving charles de gaulle airport for america every week. this is not going to be contained to the mediterranean. >> 70 workers were fired at that airport in december for ties to islamic extremism. i want to thank you for being here tonight. good to have you. the possibility of a terror attack in the middle of a presidential race quickly becoming a hot issue. if moments we'll show you what mr. trump just said at a rally. and david and larry join us on which candidate has the better
6:13 pm
approach on terror. newt gingrich here on how this incident may influence this campaign just ahead. >> and i'm saying to myself what just happened about 12 hours ago. a plane got blown out of the sky. if anybody thinks it wasn't blown out of the sky, you're 100% wrong, folks, okay? we're 100% wrong. if you take multiple medications a dry mouth can be a common side effect. that's why there's biotene. it comes in oral rinse spray or gel so there's moisturizing relief for everyone. biotene. for people who suffer from a dry mouth.

6:16 pm
6:17 pm
f. today we had a terrible tragedy and she came up and she said donald trump talked about radical islamic terrorism, which she didn't want to use. she used a different term because she doesn't want to use that term. she refuse to use that ferm. and i'm saying to myself it's a terrible thing and he essentially shouldn't be running for office he doesn't have the right to run for office. and i'm saying to myself what just happened about 12 hours ago. a plane got blown out of the sky. and if anybody thinks it wasn't blown out of the sky, you're 100% wrong, folks, okay? you're 100% wrong. >> that was presumptive republican nominee donald trump less than two hours ago reacting to today's egyptair crash. some experts now say that crash could be terror. but no matter what we learn,
6:18 pm
today touched off with beginning to look like a five-month back and forth between donald trump and hillary clinton on who would handle terror better. take a look at this poll. trump ahead of clinton. according to our latest fox survey by 12 points when it comes to who would handle the terror threat best. and taking a slightly different attack than trump clinton reacted by saying in part it's a reality of what america faces. watch. >> it does appear that it was an act of terrorism. exactly how, of course the investigation will have to determine. but it once again shines a very bright light on the threats that we face from organized terror groups. >> joining me now is attorney and trump supporter and larry core rum, see your fellow and former assistant defense secretary. david, i'll start with you first. donald trump a businessman, hillary clinton a former
6:19 pm
secretary of state. why do voters believe that donald trump would be better at taking on terror than her? >> well i mean what he said. basically he's going to completely destroy isis. hillary clinton won't even call them islamic terrorists by name. if you can't identify them by name how are you going to destroy them. i don't know if you've noticed but he's got basically 9 million followers on twitter. today's tweet made it very clear. he's not going to tolerate not just this one understand accident but global terrorism in general. his question is when will we get tough, smart and vigilant. he wants everybody to know when he takes office this isn't going to be tolerated. >> okay. >> there be a full scale war on terrorism. he's not going to hold back or be politically correct against an enemy that wants to wipe all of us out. >> what do you make of that criticism.
6:20 pm
that is out there. in the debate he was put in a position where they were looking for her to name the enemy and she wouldn't do it. >> well, i think db and again, this goes back to what mr. trump said about he's going to ban muslims. as secretary clinton pointed out, this struggle with radical groups like isis is not going to be won on the battlefield. even though you kill a lot of them they can still get recruits from around the world. that's the point that she was trying to make. and by the way, that poll you showed there, there's another thing further down in the poll that said the majority of america people support secretary clinton on attorney policy. because mr. trump has been very inconsistent. it's jups been pointed out he's going to destroy isis but he says i'm not going to get involved in any wars around the world or i'm not going to do you know nation building. well if you don't do any nation building how are you going to be able to destroy them when
6:21 pm
they're in a particular nation. >> and to larry's point, david, some say in many cases when they lay out their foreign policy that hillary clinton appears to be more hawkish than donald trump. what do you say? >> he doesn't want to donation building in that we're going to send troops to nation and then try receive sewnian democracies. it's not worth or time and effort. when it comes to isis the only thing they respond to is brute force and that's what he promises to give them. they have to be wiped out wherever they are. they're not in one nation. they're global. they have to be -- as far as the immigration goes larry makes a good point. they have to be vetted. we have no way of vetting immigrants from syria because there's no department of justice background check where we can see if they've been in jail in prison abused their wives or children. we can't just accept them full
6:22 pm
scale without any background check. that's what he talk about when he talk about a muslim ban. a ban on letting anyone and everyone in without the ability to check into their lishistories. >> larry, hillary clinton said we have to deal with the terror threats as they come. she said we can't have people intimidated. and that's where she gets criticized a lot. we don't want to be reactive. we need to be proactive. >> well i think she has a much more access foreign policy than even president obama. for example, she wants to do a no fly zone and a safe zone in syria. as you know, she was in favor going into libya. she supported the serge in afghanistan and she also supported going after bin laden. i think she's been very activist when it comes to her foreign policy. and the idea. >> du that doesn't -- >> go ahead, david.
6:23 pm
>> it doesn't make sense to have a no fly zone when a no fly zone prevents isis from being wiped out. we need to to be able to fly in many areas. >> before i let you go david, you talked about donald trump and his use of twitter. and that tweet did come out at 6:30 a.m. where he said looks like yet another terrorist attack. did he jump the gun here? was this too soon? this was before by the way, any authorities, egyptian authorities, anybody said that it was more likely terror than not. >> well he saw a plane 37,000 feet a brand-new plane spin in a 360 degree turn complete catastrophic failure plunging into the ocean, decent grating into a million pieces. that does not happen this day and age without a terrorist act precipitating it. that's what it's going to turn out to be. >> i would suggest that he take
6:24 pm
a look at what paul ryan said even late today. we're still investigating. we're not sure. trace said it you've had two planes fall out of the sky that had nothing to do with explosions. >> and in the 3:00 hour hillary clinton did say it is looking like terrorism. we have to leave it guys. thanks to both of you for joining us tonight. newt gingrich on what a possible terror attack may mean for the 2016 campaign. plus the egyptair crash is just the latest in a string of recent interests with terrorists are targeting people and planes. we have a whole panel of aviation experts with their take on what is happening and what is happening tonight. what we're learning about the final minutes of this flight.
6:25 pm
i'm mary ellen and i quit smoking with chantix. i have smoked for 30 years and by taking chantix, i was able to quit in 3 months and that was amazing. along with support chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it absolutely reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reacti if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems or develop new or worse symptoms.
6:26 pm
get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. what's it like to be in good hands? man, it's like pure power at your finger tips. like the power to earn allstate reward points, every time i drive. ...want my number? and cash back for driving safe. and the power to automatically find your car... i see you car! and i got the power to know who's coming and when if i break down. must be gerry. hey... in means getting more from your car insurance with the all-powerful drivewise app. it's good to be in, good hands.

6:28 pm
. >> breaking tonight, we're learning new details about what may be mind the loss of a jetliner over the mediterranean sea. some reports indicate this could be another incident of terror in the sky. it has been two months now since terrorists set off bombs a the brufl's airport in belgium. here tonight to discuss the recent attacks on transportation targets with congressman pete king and our panel of aviation
6:29 pm
experts. but first trace gallagher with a refresher on the terror we've seen in recent months. >> whether it's a crime scene or a plane crash, investigators are looking for pattern and common denominators. anything that could link a series of events. which is why analyzing the threats become so important. in october of last year a russian charter flight from egypt carrying the 234 people were bombed over isis killing everyone on board. isis claimed the plane was brought down by a bomb inside a soda can. it remains in the bomb was somehow snuck through egyptian air security or assembled on the other side. but authorities believe it with us smuggled on board by an airport employee. two weeks after the plane was bombed came the attacks in paris. in the wake of those attacks, french authorities discovered a group of activists planning to
6:30 pm
attack charles de gaulle apt. the airport ended up revoking 70 security badges over concerns the workers had been radicalized which is why one u.s. lawmaker told us he's concerned about the egyptair plane's nexus to france's biggest airport. listen. >> if indeed they were successful in placing a bomb or a passenger had a bomb on an airport leaving out of charles de gaulle in the heart of europe that would mean that the hardened defenses are not hardened enough. >> and now we know the attack on the brussels airport in march was linked to the attacks in november. as we get more information about the downing of flight 804, investigators will see if the dots can be connected yet again. >> thank you. joining me now, congressman pete king who serves as chairman of the counter terrorism and intelligence subcommittee. congressman king thanks for being here tonight.
6:31 pm
>> thank you. >> earlier this morning you were on fox news and you said you didn't want to prejudge this. where are you now with the facts that we have about what we know that happened with the airport, the turns that it made the plunging in elevation, the facts that we have today, where are you on what happened here? >> yeah the general consensus which i agree with is this is more an more almost definite that it's terrorism. all of the evidence is leading in that direction. until it's final it's not final but certainly going in that direction. and again if i could make another leap of faith, i would say it's probably explosive that was brought on to the plane not by a passenger but by an insider, by somebody who worked in that airport. the plane was also in tunisia. that to me is the underbelly that we have of the insiders that the airport workers the vendors, anyone who has access mechanics wib anybody who has access to the plane. we have the same issue in the
6:32 pm
united states. there's almost a mill'n of those type workers and i think we're doing a much better job of vetting than we have in the past. we have had problems in the past. and and at charles de gaulle alone, 90,000 have access to planes. >> we now at charles de gaulle, 70 workers were fired in december for their ties to islamic extremism. we had this june 2015 report laid but by fox 25's washington bureau from the homeland security inspector general's office. it revealed that 73 private employees at 40 airports across this country for flagged for ties to terror. there are some things that are coming out of this country. could something like we may have seen there, if indeed it was terrorism, could we see a plane brought down here? >> yes we could. the risk is greater coming out of gashls degall but yes.
6:33 pm
with almost a million workers and knowing that isis, al qaeda, islamist terrorists want to bring down the aircraft it's tough. we look for criticism of tsa. it's still very tough to get a bomb on a plane as a passenger. >> are we doing enough in we heard from the los angeles airport that they're raising their counter terrorism security measures in light of this. you know, some people are asking the question why don't we always have the tightest security measures possible. why do we get lax on them. >> yeah. we never should. we have to assume that we're at war and we know that isis wants to carry out spectacular attacks. nothing could be more speck tack you lash and tragic than bringing down a jet leaving the united states. the airport workers are the ones we have to be most concerned about. yes, dhs was found to be at fault as far as the workers, as far as vetting them. it's improved dramatically.
6:34 pm
but still the threat is there. to me they should never let it down not at an airport, especially not on workers. they're the ones that have access and just one of them could bring down any plane in the world. >> thank you for joining us tonight. >> thank you. i want to bring in our panel of experts on aviation security. joining me is mike boyd president of boyd group international, tom blank a former deputy tsa administrator, dan is a former commercial aaron pilot. dan, you know the function of an airplane better than many. based on what we know now about what happened with the aircraft where do you stand on what happened? >> it's still too early sandra to make a distinction between an act of terror and mechanical million function. the movements of the aircraft could just as easily be explained by a rapid decompression which may or may
6:35 pm
not have been caused by an act of terror. the plane is 13 years old with 48,000 hours on it. planes get old. this plane is supposed to last 30 40 years. but it's just way too early to determine exactly why this airplane went down. >> and mike when you look at this specific aircraft that we're talking about, there have been over 4300 of these aircraft built, only 24 have crashed due to any kind of failure. you say you're probably safer in that aircraft than you are in your chevrolet. people are asking themselves the questions tonight. are we safe to fly? is the terror threat growing? >> it's growing. it just hits me so strangely. peter king talking about all of these failures. peter king has never come out and said fire the people in charge of the tsa when they have a 90% failure rating or 9 out of
6:36 pm
12 failures in minuteneapolis last week. this could have been a hijacking. remember a couple of weeks ago somebody tried to hijack an egyptian airplane to go see his wife. we don't know enough yet. >> and about that investigation you're talking about, the undercover investigators were able to smuggled the mock explosives and banned weapons in 95% of trials. we remember that one. tom, based on what you know and based on chairman mccall saying this could have been an inside job, somebody at the airport -- he suggested it's that or somebody put this bomb on the plane before it ever left if indeed that is what happened. >> chairman mccall is exactly right. this beerars all resemblance to a
6:37 pm
bomb being smuggled on the aircraft. we have to recognize that egyptian aviation security is for all practical purposes nonexistent. what we need to do is talk a pause in direct into the u.s. from egypt until we're sure that we have full u.s. standards vetting those flights ingound.bound. and i think we need to make sure that the flights inbound direct from the eu are more strongly vetted to u.s. standards and preferably by americans before they're permitted to continue to fly. i think that's the lesson we have here. >> dan, some are going to say that tom may be -- that might be a bold thing to say, to stp all of those flights. but dan, meanwhile, this could have been a mechanical file your. it may not have been terrorism. is there a chance of that still? >> absolutely is a chance that it was a mechanical failure. one of your guests earlier said
6:38 pm
that the only case of an airplane plummeting to the sea and breaking up into millions of pieces is due to terror and that's simply not true. air france 447 that's exactly what happened. and that was human and aircraft error and it went down in the atlantic and crashed into millions of pieces. we didn't know what happened to it until we found the black box. that's what we have to do here. we have to make sure we have all of the evidence until we jump too deeply into conclusions. >> we're entering the summer travel season and you wonder if there's going to be a knee jerk reaction to airport security. l.a.x. stepping up its security measures. will we see something like that? >> it's possible. there's precedence for it for sure. tom can attest to that. however the tsa lines right now at the major hubs are incredibly long already. and i know tsa announced they're going to hire over 700 new
6:39 pm
inspectors. but hopefully this will be analyzed and they're look at it and go at it skrr tactically and not do a broad brush approach across the country because i'm not sure it's necessary, at least until we know more than we know today. >> and tom, you point out that the insider threat that is there, we have to still wait for any confirmation tonight. remember i mean it's well into the middle of the morning, the early morning hours in egypt, this search and rescue mission continues. what is that like by the way as they continue that tonight. >> well they will continue to obviously continue to look at sea for any debris. but they will also begin to do the process of looking at the insiders fueler caterers janitorial staff to see if they can find any connections to terrorism. they'll have a hard look at the
6:40 pm
egyptair cabin staff and the pilots as well. so all of that will begin to go forward to see whether or not you can find that perhaps with cargo, people that tendered cargo, handled cargo, that sort of thing is a potential vector of how that occurred. >> thank you for become here. >> thank you. here at home airline passengers lashing out at the tsa saying the agentscy security check points are to blanl for hours of wait and thousands of missed flights. as another plane goes missing under suspect circumstances, are passengers willing to give up security for speed? that debate is next. donald trump getting hit for being one of the first to blame terror if for the disappearance of egypt 340. newt gingrich is here to respond.
6:41 pm
my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers including lymphoma have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure.
6:42 pm

breaking tonight, they are stepping up security at l.a.x. tonight following the crash of an egyptair flight and suspicions it was terror. shortly after the news broke this morning donald trump weighed in by tweeting looks like another terrorist attack. trump got hit for that when robert gates suggested that trump was jumping to conclusions. >> it's always better to wait until you actually know what the facts are before you, before you open up. i realize that's a very unusual thing in american politics but it ought to be tried occasionally. >> joining us now with reaction newt gingrich himself is here former speaker of the house and author of "rediscovering god in america." good to have you here tonight. thank you. >> good to be with you. first of all, what do you make of all of this what's happening and what we know and don't know about the egyptair missing airliner. >> let me start with the l.a.x.
6:46 pm
story which is nonsense. we are in a worldwide fight with islamic supremists. the fight has been going on for decades. it's not going to change. the idea that all of the sudden because of an egyptian air flight l.a.x. is doing something for pr purposes is stupid. they should be at a constant vigilance because every airport in the world, every airline near the world is under constant threat from people who want to destroy or civilization. this is a constant permanent threat. second i think bob gates had a good point expect for this problem. barack obama has ignored the facts for seven and a half years, hillary clinton ignored the facts for seven and a half years. maybe donald trump is a couple hours early. we'll find out. i thought you had a great panel just now. i thought they made very good points. and on this incident, we'll see what the data is. but the overall reality that
6:47 pm
we're faced with islamic supremacists we've had a president for seven and a half years who has frankly failed to do his job. we have a secretary of state now candidate for president who has failed to do their job. neither one of them wants to tell us the truth about islamic supremists. i'm sympathetic with trump who gets the basic principle there are people out there who want to kill us. >> are you confident in tsa's ability to monitor weapons, bombs with anything that might get through our airport? >> well i think overall the odds are pretty good the high 99% that you can stop people who are stupid from bringing in weapons through tsa. that's pretty good. but the idea -- we don't have the right standards. you know the first test -- this is very hard to do. the first test ought to be are we dealing with people who believe in sharia and want to

impose islamic spremism. they've trained the fbi and others not to think like this. so we have i thid a number of people for example, who had worked in the minneapolis airport who went to syria -- we just very fortunate. if they had wanted to they would have done more damage staying at the minneapolis airport than going to syria. >> what was gate' motivation here? why do you think he was going after trump so hard? i mean he said he seems to think he has all of the answers and he doesn't need advice from staff or anybody else. >> bob gates is one of the great bureaucratic officials in american history. i have enormous respect for his commitment to the country. i think he's very very smart but he's a total insider. and he believes in the old order. donald trump is a direct challenge to the old order, an

order which, by the way, has not won the war. from 9/11 to today is the equivalent of going from pearl harbor to 1955. now if we were still fieg in japan in 1955 we would have been in turmoil. the fact is with all due respect to secretary gates who's a great patriot and a very smart man, the leadership of that establishment has failed and that's why you're getting a donald trump. >> former speaker of the house, newt gingrich very good to have you on tonight. tonight's egyptair crash raising questions about security at airports nationwide and forcing a new look at all of the recent problems with the tsa. that report is next.

6:54 pm
>> reporter: good evening. this egyptair accident comes as we have been reporting about the meltdown here in the united states. the agency's manpower has hit a five-year low because of budget cuts and layoffs and as a result passengers have missed their flights waiting in lines. hundreds of flight schedules have been affected. most travelers we talked to say their safety is worth the wait no matter how inefficient the tsa may be but some travelers argue if a terrorist can make it thru a two hour line they can make it through a 30 minute line. this brings airline safety back to the forefront and the tsa is rushing to fix the long lines but is trying to find balance between service and safety. >> i'm not blaming passengers. it is volume and some circumstances it is staffing and some places it's infrastructure and being able to have the resources that we need.
6:55 pm
and a small piece of it is the prohibited items. it's all puzzle pieces to a bigger picture. >> reporter: there are some added safety measures tonight but no major overhauls from tsa as a result of that air crush. a spokesperson mentioned the agency is urging people to double check they don't bring any prohibited items through security because it does slow everyone down. the add straighter will be making a special trip to chicago here tomorrow morning and we will keep you posted on the ongoing issues and if his visit moves things along for america's airports. >> it looks like the lines have slowed down for the moment. thank you. we'll be right back.
