11:00 am
leland: was there a collective gasp. kristin: the media laughed. we were like oh, is this the kind of curse that abc was trying to keep -- leland: but everybody paid attention. kristin: we've got five seconds left. we've got to go. arthel: just days after the u.s. reflected on the tragedy of 9/11 in which nearly 3,000 people were killed, president trump confirmed the death of hamza bin laden, the son of the master mind of those attacks, osama bin laden. he was killed in a u.s. counter terrorism operation near the afghanistan, pakistan border. the exact date and time were unclear. reports of his death, his possible death, first came this past july. hello everyone. welcome to america's news headquarters. i'm arthel neville. eric: thank you for joining, i'm eric shawn. hamza bin laden believed to be an emerging leader of al-qaida. this comes as president trump
11:01 am
looks to end america's longest running war in afghanistan and those peace talks with the taliban, well, they fell you apart. lucas tomlinson is live at our washington bureau with more on what comes next. >> reporter: the white house made the a announcement in a statement this morning and as arthel said, it doesn't say where or when the operation to kill him took place, nor provide any evidence. quote, hamza bin laden, son of osama bin laden, was killed in a united states counter terrorism operation. last month, jennifer griffin asked mark esper about him in his first television interview. >inter.>> hamza bin laden was ky in some way in the last year. where was he killed? did the u.s. kill hamza bin laden? where was it. >> i don't have the details on that. if i did, i'm not sure how much i could share with you. i'd have to get back with you on that one. >> but hamza bin laden is dead
11:02 am
1234. >> that's my understanding. >> reporter: he was believed to be around 30 years old. in february, the state department put a $1 million bounty on his dead, that's normally the first step before drone strikes are authorized to kill a terrorist leader. u.s. officials describe him says an emerging al-qaida leader who threatened attacks against the u.s. in the past. the u.s. does not conduct air strikes in of afghanistan, leading some to speculate the cia could have killed him say in pakistan. navy seals killed osama bin laden in 2011 and his 23-year-old brother, kalid. there was a tweet a short time ago, h quote, still ambiguity about where he was killed. the u.s. knows where. why say somewhere in the afghanistan, pakistan region, instead of specifying location, unless purpose is to save someone from embarrassment. that someone could be pakistan's prime minister.
11:03 am
it's notable, president trump made no mention of hamza three days ago when he spoke at the pentagon on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. eric. eric: thanks so much. arthel: for more on this, we're joined by christian whiten, a former state department senior add a vicaadvisor in the trump e w bush administration. if hamza bin laden was a potential rising figure in al-qaida, does his death derail anil kai dan al-qaida comebac? al-qaida has several lethal affiliates around the world and he was aa ledgedly responsible for those affiliates. so i ask -- and he worked with and coordinated with other terror groups. is al-qaida and associates emboldened by this or crippled by this? >> i think it's a significant setback. unclear if they're crippled. they haven't frankly been as active. they remain a serious threat and obviously an organization that's determined not just to spread
11:04 am
terrorism around the world but also to strike the united states directly. but certainly it's a welcome department. hamza was somewhat surprisingly not present at the compound when the u.s. navy seals killed bin laden in 2011, just wasn't present, so has been in this region. it's a very significant development at least as far as al-qaida is concerned, that segment of jihadism. arthel: the terror groups are all about martyrs. is the fact we're saying his name, printing his name, does that give him more pos post poss power. >> i don't think so. losing is very, very question and answeveryconsequential. when isis was conducting jihadist attacks in europe, a lot of people were joining up. when they started losing on the battlefield it diminished rapidly as a jihadist force. it's another bin laden.
11:05 am
he's dead. all of the leadership of al-qaida has existed in 2011 or in '98 when they hit our embassies in africa, dead, except for a couple people in guantanamo. i think that has an effect. arthel: july 31st, the wall street journal reported that hamza bin laden was believed dead. today, president trump is just confirming that he was indeed killed in a u.s. counter dare riterrorism operation. do you know why the president waited six weeks to confirm. >> i would speculate, as lucas sort of implied, that when you say this happened in the afghanistan, pakistan area, what that means is it probably happened in pakistan and we could ask once again why pakistan, supposedly a u.s. ally, a u.s. partner, is harboring once again a terrorist. these guys harbored bin laden. they denied they knew abou abou. very senior elements of this
11:06 am
terrorist groups in pakistan, perhaps, i think that would be a reason not to raise this. it complicates the sort of mission of actually getting out of afghanistan. arthel: looking at that death now reported an confirmed by the president through the lens of u.s. troop withdrawal from afghanistan, would you suggest a different strategy from what has been laid out? >> no, i think in fact this sort of reinforces why we can get out of afghanistan. the original mission in going in was never to turn the place into beverly hills. it was to get the people who attacked us on 9/11 and those would who were harboring them. that requirement was accomplished frankly long ago. also, this puts al-qaida in perspective. it is still a serious threat, frankly will always be, but the pointy edge of jihadism is the iranian government. we see that in the persian gulf where houthis did a major attack on saudi oil exports. that will take half of saudi oil
11:07 am
exports offline for a little bit. i think shifting out of afghanistan, owe focusing on threats like iran and china are sort of reinforcing the importance by the diminished nature of al-qaida this attack reveals. arthel: should this impact a potential peace agreement with the taliban? >> i don't think so. the president didn't want to give a message that it was good to kill u.s. troops on the way to the negotiating table. the taliban made it clear that the deal is still on the table, a guarantee or promise not to attack the united states and frankly at this attack, the killing shows, we have the ability to reach out and touch someone from anywhere in the world. i think this means the negotiations with the taliban can proceed and we can get out of afghan. arthelafghanistan.arthel: we w.
11:08 am
thank you very much. >> thank you, arthel. eric: a deadly shootout along the southern border involving border patrol agents highlights the danger they face there. agents were performing a vehicle stop last night, west of san antonio. that's when we're told one of the two people in the vehicle opened fire. jackie heinrich has breaking details from our newsroom. jackie. >> a lot of questions still remain including why the agents pulled the car over in the first place and if the people that were in it were in the country illegally. but this is what's been confirmed so far. around 8:00 local time last night, two border patrol agents pulled over a car in back he etville, texas -- bracketville, texas, about 35 miles from the u.s. border. two people in the car, one of them fired a weapon at the two agents. one officer was hit, the returned fire, shooting and killing the gunman.
11:09 am
first responders brought the injured officer to the hospital. he is expected to be okay. >> my understanding that he's already been released, that the gear worked as it was supposed to. he suffered i think very minor injuries physically, of course, so we don't know what else is going to happen there. but looks like he's going to be okay. >> the second person in the car was taken into custody and the shooting is under investigation by the fbi, texas rangers and cbp's office of professional responsibility. but so far no agency has been able to give us any additional information. that being said, though the website shows the del-rio sector where this happened has seen a significant increase in apprehensions this year. in 2019, officers took more than 19,000 single adults into custody, that's up 79% from the year prior. there's been more than 30,000 family unit apprehensions, up more than 11% from 2018.
11:10 am
and there have been more than 3,000 unaccompanied minor apprehensions, that number is up 174%. we're hoping for more information on this most recent incident from cbp and the fbi later on this afternoon. eric: certainly highlights the dangers they face at the border. thank you. tomorrow on sunday morning futures, maria bartiromo has an interview with kevin mci lenan. they'll talk about his assessment of the crisis that's continuing on the southern border, that's tomorrow at 10:0s channel. arthel: the bahamas are potentially in the path of yet another storm. tropical storm warnings are in effect as the storm approaches areas of the island nation already definit devastated by d. tomorrow marks two weeks since
11:11 am
dorian made landfall. at least 5 # of people are confirmed -- 50 people are confirmed dead from that storm and 1300 people are still reported missing. the death toll is expected to rise. early estimates puts the physical damage at $7 billion. we have live fox team coverage. steve harrigan is in nassau, bahamas. we begin with adam klotz. adam. >> there is good news with this system. it is not another dorian. still, something we need to pay attention to as it is a tropical storm but it is not going to have near the impact that we saw with dorian. actually, where we're currently sitting, 40 miles north of great abaco island, you see most of the heavy rain and thel the reay strong winds to the north and east of this.
11:12 am
the absolute worst of the system is staying offshore. the islands ar are tropical stom warnings. the storm won't get close now the coast to need the tropical storm warnings. why is that? this is about to take off to the north, already moving to the northwest at 7 miles an hour and then cut off back out to sea. never really getting close enough to bring the tropical storm warnings in, the tropical storm winds. there will be returned issues across -- ripcurrent issues across the state of florida and into the carolinas throughout the course of the weekend and into this week. there will be some bands of rain also. this is the forecasted track with the storm. i'll put it into motion for you here. it is actually expected to intensify but as it really gets -- as it builds strength, it will run farther away from the united states coast before shooting into the atlantic. by the time we get to wednesday and thursday, maybe jumping up to a category 2 storm and then we see bermuda there on the way. so that's something we'll be watching but as far as the u.s. coast goes, this is looking
11:13 am
pretty good. arthel: already. adam, thank you very much h. eric: steve harrigan is live in nassau, bahamas where they've certainly suffered a lot. hi, steve. >> reporter: eric, you're right. conditions here in that usa not bad but much trouble about 80 80 miles to the north of me. they are suffering from tropical storm force winds, up to 50 miles per hour. the real concern too is from the rain, it could dump up to 6 inches on some parts of the island. that is the place they did not want this storm to hit. even though it's not a category 5 hurricane, like dorian two weeks ago, still the wind and the rain are really falling on the people who just can't take it right now. if you look at the scenes there, on those northern bahama islands, you see many many people just really trying to survive, nailing up tarps with ham hers, blue tarps over what used to be the roofs of their houses, about 10,000 buildings destroyed, a lot of people
11:14 am
homeless, he desperate to get out by ferry or by plane. the weakest getting hit once again by a storm. the storm has slowed aid flow toss the island and slowed the recovery effort as well. there is an ongoing search for those missing, those presumed dead in the storm. right now, the official death toll by the government stands at at 52 but there's more than 1300 people missing from dorian. eric: thank you. arthel: the 2020 candidates are fanning out across the country after making waves in houston during the last debate including former congressman beto o'rourke's remarks about guns, how it's all playing out on the campaign trail. plus, news from the white house concerning otto warmbier, the young american whom north korea is responsible for killing. the very special guest president trump is set to host for dinner this evening, that's up next.

now you can know who's on your network and control who shouldn't be, only with xfinity xfi. simple. easy. awesome. eric: a fox is confirming there will be a meaningful get-together tonight. president trump will host the parents of otto warmbier and some of otto's friends for a private dinner this evening at the white house. as you know, otto was the 22-year-old university of
11:19 am
virginia student who was falsely arrested and tortured by kim jong un's goons for 17 months. he was released in 2017. he was in a vegetative state, deaf, blind, unable to speak. he died shortly after he returned home in cincinnati. what does this dinner mean and what could the warmbiers tell the president about the regime that so savagely murdered their son. we are joined by the former ambassador to singapore under president george w bush, chairman and ceo of export now. frank, it promises to be a special evening, obviously. what is the symbolism? does it show kim jong un that we as a country, as a president, as an administration, we will never forget a young american who died this way. >> i think that's exactly right, eric. the nuclear talks get a lot of attention as they should. the missile talks get a lot of attention, person to person
11:20 am
diplomacy. these are important steps. but let's not overlook the human factor and this meeting elevates that human fact torques elevates the -- factor, elevates the very sad death of otto warmbier and warns north koreans if you harm americans you are subject to pay a cost for that. eric: the warmbiers won $500 million in a lawsuit. they're trying to get some of the assets, even going to europe. that hasn't happened. what message should be sent to kim jong un, dealing with ott ho warmbier and dealing with human rights, they way they starve their people and have work camps, one of the worst violators of you human rights on the earth today. >> i think the president has has his priorities in the right sequence, in terms of possible damage or harm done, the number one goal is stopping the nuclear tests, stopping the missile tests. of after that, we put more of a weight on human rights, normalizing relations. you have to keep it in balance.
11:21 am
having the dinner is more symbolism than anything else. it is the right kind of symbolism he. eric: how do di the warmbiers l with the fact that the president has such praise for kim jong un. >> you need a working relationship with the north korean government. i would be careful about words used to describe they'll. he's not deserving a lot of praise in my view. you need a functional relationship with these folks. you need to remind north korea that we know what you really are. we know what's behind the mask. eric: you were ambassador to singapore. you know what happens behind closed doors. cindy warmbier spoke about that. she called diplomacy a charade. >> there's a charade going on right now. it's called diplomacy. how can you have diplomacy with
11:22 am
someone that never tells the truth? that's what i want to know. i'm all for it. but i'm very skeptical. he lies, he lie, he lies all for himself. eric: how d do you balance diplomacy when everything kim promises he hasn't done. >> your heart goes out to the mother. it's words to the wise to say it's well and good to sign an agreement with kim jong un but you better have an enforcement mechanism. there is no guarantee he will keep his word he. eric: can we ever guarantee that? what type of progress do you want to see. >> we can have inspections of nuclear facilities. you can detect missile tests. it's an ongoing game, ongoing
11:23 am
manipulation. eric: do you think he'll ever denuclearize. >> he derives more value from being provocative, being outrageous, being a bit of a rogue, than he gets value from collaborating and maybe economic benefits or joining the family of nations. i think the challenge to the united states and our allies is how do we change that equation to say, look, if you keep violating these laws, it's going to get worse. but if you stop, there's opportunities. that's part of president trump's message to him. eric: that's what he said about the a apple, dangling an apple in front of him, basically economic abilities. >> i think you need carrot as well as stick. eric: that's what i was trying to get to. here's mrs. warmbier again, talking about the evil of that regime. >> this is a problem. this is not only a nuclear problem. this is a problem that we're dealing with absolute evil.
11:24 am
we can ignore it, like i would have, had this not happened to hme. but i can't guarantee that something bad's not going to happen if we leave things alone. eric: absolute evil. >> well, i'm glad the mother is out there with that message and the one thing we can all say to all of our friends, relatives, other college kids, be careful about your travel schedule. there's plenty of places in this world to visit that are democracies, that respect human rights. there's no need to see a dictatorship. dictator you put yourself at risk. eric: do you think they can ever reform. >> i don't think this fellow is the reformer. he's an establishment fellow. eric: all right. frank, we'll be reporting over the weekend. thank you for your insight. arthel: thank you. we're taking you back to the campaign trail now as 2020 candidates are back at it, following thursday's debate.
11:25 am

11:26 am
>> reporter: campaigning in her home state of massachusetts, senator elizabeth warren isn't shying away from the expansion of government. she's embracing it. >> the time for small ideas is over. if we're going to rebuild our economy, if we're going to clean up corruption in our government, if we're going to save our democracy, we need to be the party of big structural change. >> reporter: warren has been showing momentum even leading in some polls, but the latest real clear politics average shows joe biden with a commanding lead. he's at 26.8%, bernie sanders in second at 17.3%, elizabeth warren in third at 16.8%. and kamala harris is at 6.5% in a distant fourth. >> since the beginning, i've said we need to prosecute the case against president trump and consistently if in the campaign i've been pointing out the reasons why. >> reporter: prosecuting the
11:27 am
case against trump has not been an effective strategy for her as congressional democrats struggle over how to lay out impeachable crimes. beto o'rourke is qualifying the ar-15 comment. no door-to-door raids to confiscate weapons, he says. >> this is not something we would do. i raise that because others have said this is something we would fear if there were mandatory myback program. no, we expect people to follow the law. i believe that's what will happen. >> reporter: look for the candidates at tonight's black caucus continue rer t dinner ton americans to get out and vote. arthel: doug, thank you. eric: the department of justice inspector general's draft report on that fisa abuse, thoseal a lee gathoseallegations now in tf attorney general william barr. >> if somebody didn't do

white house with more. >> reporter: physical therapy is opresident trump ison the way be house at this hour. he's been tweeting about the details about continue expecter general saying his report detailing how the government began allegedly spying on the trump campaign in 2016, that that report is in the hands of the attorney general. michael horowitz sent a letter to congress on friday saying the letter examined potential abuses. one senator is calling for the attorney general to work quickly to review and release the report. >> i would ask the attorney general to work sunday. he probably does anyway, after church, read the report and a let's get it released to the american people. they're entitled to know what happened. >> reporter: president trump has said that he would like to see details of this report as well as several republican senators, that they would like to see the report be made public. however, there's no exact time line of when that may happen. arthel: i want to turn back to
11:34 am
our top story. the white house confirmed this morning the death of hamza bin laden. there had been reports about his death for weeks, about six weeks, plus. do we know why the white house chose to announce it this morning? >> reporter: arresarthel, we do. the white house released a brief statement. there had been speculation about hamza bin laden's death for the last several weeks. the white house didn't make it sure what led to their decision to announce it. hamza bin laden's death has been speculated on. we noe it was part of a u.s. counter terrorism operation and it happened in th afghanistan ad pakistan region. the u.s.president trump spent tt wednesday at the pentagon, it was the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. it was there he told a crowd the u.s. remains committed to winning the war on terror. >> if for any reason they come back to our country, we will go
11:35 am
wherever they are and use power the likes of which the united states has never used before. >> reporter: that was the president at the pentagon on wednesday. he does have a busy week coming up. he's going to head out west, going on monday toly ow to rio , new mexico before going to california as well. eric: as our nation marked 18 years since the 9/11 attacks, it's important to pause and remember the thousands of people who were killed that day and also evaluate what security changes have been made to make sure airliners are never again used as weapons against us. airport security has evolved over the last two decades at some airports, your face is boarding pass and the u.s. border patrol agency tested biometric boarding at the houston international airport and they said it was a success. so, does this measure and other
11:36 am
safety checks mean our airports are much safer today than before 9/11? let's bring in our next guest, he wrote an op ed in the hill this past september 11th. to discuss that question, joining me is jay radcliffe. we certainly are safer one would think but you've got to wonder if this could happen again. >> well, we're not going to have a repeat of 9/11. we have too many things in place prevent it. we are safer than we were before. before 9/11, we didn't screen any checked bags on any domestic flight. the perception, publicly, was that we did, but after the bombing of pan am 103 in december of '88, the decision was made we needed to do something to screen those bags and the decision by the. government at that time was to instead ask the h three questioe remember, did you pack your bag yourself, have they been in your
11:37 am
possession the whole tile, feel-good security measures. they weren't doing anything. a terrorist isn't going to tell the truth when they check in at an airport. the fact we're screening checked bags as we started to do after the attacks of 9/11 has made it incredibly safer from the standpoint of flying. we're using full body imaging scaners, something that upgraded security measures as well. what we used for decades was designed for metal. if someone had powder or liquid explosives strapped to their bodies, there was no way to pick it up. the full body imaging scaners that we're using at airports across the country can detect these explosives under the clothes of someone that's traveling. therefore, it is, again, much safer. we still have a lot to do but it's considerably safer to fly today than prior to the attacks of 9/11. eric: we had the cockpit doors as you know are totally reinforced. i think if anything happened after flight 93, passengers are
11:38 am
going to go into action ourselves, i think. go ahead. >> i was going to say, any time you see someone act up on an airplane, you see 35 people jumping to the aid of the flight crew. you have people boarding the airplane telling the lead flight attendant, i'm former military,ism a retired airline employee, if you need an extra set of hands, come and get me. we'll never have a repeat of 9/11 even though we've done everything to make sure that we will not have that, with regards to the cockpit voice recorder or the reinforced cockpit door and biometrics is something we'll see at airports around the country where the tsa and others will be using this form of facial recognition to speed up the boarding process and to make it more secure and we're going to continue to see that implemented at airports around the country, internationally as well as dough mess particularly as we -- domestically as we travel. eric: we are certainly safer.
11:39 am
we have systems that know who is going on-board and that is reassuring and comforting so it never happens again. jay ratcliffe, thank you. arthel. arthel: from "desperate housewives" to orange is the new black, felicity huffman sentenced to 14 days behind bars for her role in the college admissions scandal. but does the punishment fit the crime and what does this mean for other parents in trouble including actress lorrie laughlin. our -- lorri laurie laughlin. our legal panel weighs in next. compared to 2000. had you owned gold, your value would have increased by over 400%. and owning gold is easy... with rosland capital - a trusted leader in helping people acquire precious metals. gold bullion, lady liberty gold and silver proofs,

and clear to other parents who are thinking or ever thought about doing such a thing that this is completely not allowed. but here's the deal. this poor woman's life has been ruined for a mistake, yes, a mistake. she didn't rape. she didn't kill. i don't know if this is warranted but social media has spoken. arthel: venu? >> the operation called -- government called it varsity blue. they touted it as a massive case where people will spend decades in prison. she got 14 days. this is a huge loss for the united states attorneys office in the boston office. they were talking years and years. she got 14 days. i actually disagree, this really doesn't you say anything. she's going to get away with it. she's an actress. she can go back to hollywood. markey mark is mark wallburg, he has felony convictions and he's an a-list hollywood star. arthel: when you compare the way felicity huffman handled the

court appearance, her letter to judge to -- to the judge. lori loughlin, she could spend many years in prison, it could be 40 years. they could be in at least be in prison for 18 months, if not more. how do you think their case will play out? >> their case is a little different. here's the problem with the government's case against lori loughlin. if you read the indictment, the most she is said to have done is be cced on e-mails between her you husband and singer, the guy who orange straighted all of this -- orchestrated all of this. there's a phone call where she he says she's done and she goes uh huh. arthel: are you saying she won't go to jail but her husband will. >> they need separate lawyers. she should get her own lawyer. he faces more time than she

pregnant myself with a 1-year-old daughter at home. this is about a mom who tried to do the best for ther her kid. i think the law and the underlying this i think the education system is so flawed, we go after mothers for trying to do better for her kids. what about the people who are killing, what about the opioid epidemic, what's going on in this country? >> i think when you look at those cases, that's a bad example. that sentence in that ohio case was outrageous for what happened. so to compare them and this isn't outrageous, this is really a civil issue. it's really the parents basically defrauding the college and the federal government stepping in and trying to criminalize what's really a fraud issue between them and the college. the college should be suing them. the u.s. government using your taxpayer dollar and mine is now making this a big case and now they've got a big black eye yesterday because they got hardly any jail for one of their two signature defendants.

eric: iranian backed rep bells are claiming responsibility for the drone strike on the oil processing facility in saudi arabia. it forced the kingdom to shut down half of the oil production. kitty logan has more on this from london. hi, kitty. >> reporter: hi, eric. saudi authorities haven't given official figures for the level of disruption to its oil production but already we're seeing the impact of these strikes and it is anticipated that they could be some significant disruption to come. what we saw in the strikes was two major oil processing facilities in saudi arabia hit in a series of drone strikes overnight. 10 droughn10 drones in the stri, sparking huge fires and explosions. the fires are under control. it's not clear if anyone has
11:55 am
been injured. saudi authorities are releasing limited details on this and of course houthi rebels in yemen have claimed responsibility for the attacks. it is not the first time they have you attacked saudi arabia but it's certainly the most brazen. a spokesman for the rebels says these attacks will continue unless the saudi government seis military -- ceases its military campaign in yemen. the latest escalation doesn't bode well for a peaceful settlement to the conflict. houthis have launched rockets across the border toward saudi arabia before but this is the first time they have carried out such sophisticated attacks. this could be a game-changer when it comes to relations between saudi arabia and the houthi rebel and as you mentioned houthi rebels they are iranian backed and this is effectively a proxy war between saudi arabia and iran and this doesn't help bring peace to the region. eric: it seems iran's
