the scrutinynyat just about every event.including friday's big game between the iowa hawkeyes and nebraska cornhuskers. cornhuskers.if you're headed to the game, they want you to remember to arrive early. two gates will be closed while six others will close at kickoff. fans will also be required to open outer garments for visual inspections and are being askek to bring as few items as possible. as for the fight against isis overseas, the pentagon says war costs the american taxpayers about 11-million dollars a day.while that uounds like a lot to the average person, experts say it's nothing compapad to other modern-day conflicts.national correspondent jeff barnd breaks down the numbers in a story.. story..you will only see on fox 28 news. news. the united state's has spent about three-billion dollars over the past 15 months to destroy isis. it's less than one percent of the department of defense nearly 600 billion
terribly under resourced war for our objectives that our commander in chief has set for us.military anast john hannah, a former security advisor ununr george w. bush, questions the administration's strategy.starting he says with too few dollars being spent on a battle president barack obama has declared in our national vital interest "god forbid in the aftermath of paris, if the united states were to be hit, the costs then would be astronomical for us to go in on the ground by ourselves to try to take care of this problem."melanie greenberg, the head of the alliance for peacebuilding, says it's not cost effective to just throw more money at a military response. "you can put an endless s amount t to military spending. but unless you can change the dynamics on the ground socially and change the incentives for people to join isis, you are never going to come to a resolution."
foundation for defense of democracies, is certain, if america fails in its fight against the islamic state -- the cost of what isis will bring to bear will be overwhelming emotional as well as financial. i i jeff barnd reporting if isis fighters were to slip into the u-s through a refugee program, the government should be held accountable.that's the result from a nationwide poll fox 28 news conducted with our sister stations this week. week.84-percent out of more than 81-hundred votes said the government should be held accountable.we want to thank everyone here in eastern iowa and in dozens of cities nationwide for taking part in our non-scientific twitter poll. poll.we asked the question after the u.s. house passed a bill last week to suspend the program allowing syrian and iraqi refugees into the u.s. supporters of the bill want more security assurances before up to 10-thousand refugees are brought to the u-s.next up, the senate will take up p e issue.
vetting process that we need to prevent people from coming into the country that we don't want here.. i don't care what the administration says""some have said that the only t tng harder than a syrian refugee getting onto the united states going through all this process is if they swam across the atlantic ocean .. so, we need to make sure we do this carefully.. we're also a nation of immigrants and we've over the years accepted refugees as long as we do it safely and we do it properly" properly" senate minority leader harry reid says democrats will attempt to block the measure next week when it iidebated. they might come from a different country, but the debate over how to handle refugees from countries threatening the u-s is nothing new.fox 28 news national correspondent kristine frazao has more on the historical similarities between now -- and then. then. very simply, we can't take em folks, we can't take them.to turn them away and say there's no way you could ever get here, would play righghinto
of words over syrian refugees turns into a debate over american values.when it comes to american taking in refugees from conflict torn counties, that debate is decades old.the united states took more jewish refugees from europe, than any other country in the world, between 1933 and 1945, when the nazis were in power. roevelt uld have liked to take ininore, but he lt his hands were tied, because the congress was not going to increase the quota.last week the house passed more stringent vetting procedures. which could halt the flow of syrian refugees into the u-s. earlier this ar, president obama had pledged to increase that number.there are also calls like these from the gop frontrunners.i want everybody to have a database.i want surveillance of certain mosques, ok?those calls, compared to the same slippery slope, that has led to some of hte mt shameful moments in american history, like the imprisonment f thousands of japanese americans after the attack on pearl harbor.abraham lincoln, considered one of
this nation's greatest presidents, denied suspected confederate collaborators their day in court.it't'a dark legacy some americans visiting his memorial hope won't be repeated.i would be horrified if we had to get to that.we just hope that they'll make the best decisisns to keep us safe.we have a national identity which is based on rights and democratic principles that are written into the constitution.when we feel insecure, historically, we've been very quick to jettisis those principles. it didn't help our security and in some cases it hurt it and that's the kind of lesson we should learn from history.in washinon, i'm kristine frazao reporting. many have voiced their opinions about the refugeeee crisis and whether helping others is really a priority for america.one viral post you might have seen highlighted the plight of many american *veterans.now some here in n e corridor are doing more than sharing a picture, they're doing something about it, it,fox 28 news reporter dora
