sounded like, i'll be ready. i have a plan if you need me. at some point. >> the truth is, there is some truth to that. because what i wanted. >> but are you leaving the door open if something happens? >> no, no. i was making the case that i do want to influence the democratic party. i want to make no bones about that. i don't want the party walking away from what barack and i did. you said you will not be silent? >> i will not be silent. i want to the extent that i can influence the democratic party. >> you didn't mention hillary clinton at all during your speech but did seem to be referring to her if i don't think we should look at republicans as our in mes. was that a reference -- >> that wasn't directed to hillary. >> she called republicans enemies in the debate. >> i think she was being more humorous than direct about that. >> she said that in the debate.

thought, or had some doubts, about hillary clinton? >> not at all. that has nothing to do with it. i said from the beginning. look, i like hillary. hillary and i get along together. the only reason, i still think i could do a better job than any body else could do. that's the reason to run. i wouldn't run against him ear. >> but you also said in the rose garden. democrats should run on the record. >> that's right. >> the president's record. >> i believe that. do you think hillary is run og in that or something else? >> will she will run on part or not. she has made a decision on two important things. doesn't mean she won't be a great president. >> when "the new york times" reported there is real tension between you and hillary clinton that the mere mention of her name makes you fume according to some advisers. >> well, let me till you something. it must be the same guys who knew i was going to run. because that's never been the case. go back and find anybody who says for the four years we worked together, hillary and i
weren't friends. >> what do you think uh donald trump? >> the one thing i, i am disappointed in donald trump, i know what a showman and all he is. but i really, i really don't think it's healthy and i hope he reconsiders this sort of attack on all immigrants. i think that is i think that is beneath the country. i don't think it is where the american people are. i hope he doesn't really believe it. >> you have 15 months left in office. what one or two things do you think you can get done? >> i think we can get a number of things done. one i think we can really begin to nail down this commitment to work on cancer and -- head toward a moon shot. the president and i have talked about that. number two, i think we can -- make some real progress with paul ryan, a good guy on working toward an accommodation on the budget and keeping the government open. >> this white house has not been able to get much done with this congress. do you think, as speaker ryan will change things?

the pentagon has released dramatic video of last week's rescue operation in iraq. helmet cameras caught the action as kurdish fighters backed by u.s. special forces soldiers swooped in and raided an isis operation center. the raid freed 69 prisoners and captured a half dozen isis gunmen. but also led to death of an american soldier, master sergeant joshua wheeler. the u.s. involvement in the battle against yes has been mostly limited to the air war against targets in iraq and syria. david martin got a firsthand look inside the command center in the persian gulf nation of qatar. boy the b-1 is carrying 17.5 tons of bombs and 170,000 pound
of jet fuel. it strains to get airborne in the reduced lift of 100-degree heat. it will take nearly three hours to reach the target. with two aerial refuelings along the way. mr. martin welcome to the combat operations floor. >> yeah. >> reporter: lieutenant colonel david hayworth takes us in to watch as b-1 and all the other aircraft carry out the day's attack plan against isis. >> doesn't have any windows but nice view. >> good look at arabian golf through iraq and syria. >> reporter: the air war going o 14 months. this is the first time news cameras have been allowed into its nerve center. >> the weapon of choice here is information. the more information we have about the enemy and our friendlies, the better we are able to make decisions. >> on one wall, a giant map showing the location of every plane. green or american and allied. the blue are commercial aircraft.
on another a video feed from an unmanned drone. one of dozens orbiting over iraq and syria. we make our way around the floor to a spot in the center called the crow's-nest. >> you were standing right now at the nexus, the center of the air campaign against isil and daish. >> reporter: general charles brown is the commander of the air war. how much effort does it take to mount a strike like that? >> from just the one airplane, schedule wise, a three day process. some of those we looked at for, for -- days, weeks, sometimes months. >> i can't from here see any human activity around there. >> there is today's target. on the wall of the command center the a live video feed from an unmanned drone pointing its camera at a cluster of buildings believed to be hiding isis explosives. we can see the green track of the b-1 on the screen as it approaches the target.
while the drone takes one last look, lieutenant general brown explains what is happening. >> it is a weapons cache as well as a -- vehicle borne ied. >> exactly. >> reporter: the first planes over the target are a pair of dutch f-16 a awe decrease. >> here we go. >> now is that a second ear? >> probably a second ear. >> that means they were explosives in there? >> correct. going off. >> right. >> so i guess if there were any body in the other three you would have seen them running out by now. >> exactly. >> there goes the vehicle. >> next the b-1 with the bombs. >> look at that. >> the second eary are going of. and indication. level of explosives inside the
buildings. >> total of 16 weapons. >> prob blably a weapon. >> for a month and a half. u.s. and allied planes have struck 47 facility like this one. >> they're going to go set up another factory in another building some place. >> potentially. and, our goal is to -- to haunt them wherever they are and take the things out so we can rely on security and stability in this region. >> how does today, this one day of strikes we have witnessed, how does that -- bring the u.s. closer to -- to defeating isis? >> well, every day we go out and strike, it's one step closer. i can't tell you how many steps it is going to take. it is going to be more than a handful. that's for sure. >> and every day, more bombs are unpacked and assembled. these are the 2,000 bunker busters used in the attack we witnessed. and insert fuses and dial in
delay of several millisecond. so the explosives inside won't go off until after the bomb penetrated its target. next, tailfins that will guide the bombs are attached. the geographic coordinates of the targets will be programmed into the bombs and gps satellites, the same ones you use to navigate your car will steer them. the bombs are haul out to one of the busiest airfield in the world and along with smaller 500 pounders, loaded aboard b-1 bombers. the u.s. is spending $10 million a day. launching aircraft from bases in kuwait, qatar, the united arab emirates. jordan, turkey. counting al l inin ining allied. the air campaign began last year, president obama warned, it would take time. >> it seems like it is taking even more time than -- than
people thought. >> it is in some regard. part of this, not only working at the pace and the way we would operate, it is also the pace at our partners operate. a tee effoam effort. we look to move faster. >> one hold-up is the iraqi army. still trying to regroup after being routed by yes last year. the strikes are supposed to pave the way for it to retake lost ground. but now, iraqi officials from the prime minister on down, are saying publicly, we are not getting enough air strikes. >> i tell you that is a bit frustrating. because we have air purr over iraq. 24/7. just for the record are the iraqis calling for more strikes than you are tabable to deliver? >> no we, have a lot of air purr out there. >> every time the iraqis call for a strike. wear's able to deliver. >> were's there. >> why are they complaining? >> that's a good question. because the i think we have been a great support of what the iraqis have been doing.
so i guess i take, i have a different opinion the i've really do. >> reporter: the answer at lest according to american military officers, is that the iraqis are making excuses for their failure to take greater advantage of the strikes. which pentagon statistic shoz have destroyed tore damaged nearly 14,000 isis targets. everything from tanks to buildings to staging areas. and although the pentagon refuses to put out an official body count, lieutenant colonel h hayworth. >> i'm seeing it. enemy fighters being killed in action. at a rate on par numbers you are hearing 1,000 a month. >> reporter: isis has been able to replace its dead with snu recruits. the estimated number of enemy fighters remains unchanged. 20,000, 30,000 last year. 20,000, 30,000 this year. >> so as long as they can keep bringing fighters in there, are
you just shuffling sand against the tide? >> i don't know if that's the way i would put it. you have to eliminate the folks. you have off to take then me off the bat ltd fietlefielbattlefie. they're not as seasoned. we'll take them out. >> best measure of progress is the amount of ground isis has lost. the pentagon released a map to show how much land has changed hand since the air campaign began. some territory held by isis, the areas in green, have been retaken by friendly forces. isis has also made some gains seen here in dark red. but overall, isis apares to be the net loser. >> this is, this is isis controlled here. >> you know, that is an interesting term. isis controlled. i have seen a lot of maps. reports about the pieces. there is big large swaths of red territory, isis controls. but really you are seeing very small pockets of where isil really is. this is vast open desert.
really, they're concentrated on a few small locations along these lines of communications leading into syria. >> syria, where isis has its headquarters and where the civil war only promises to get hotter now that the russian air force has intervened on the side of syria's dictator bashar al assad. the russian jets in yellow on the screen are tracked by the command center. >> whale they intend to operate in syria. and we intend to operate in syria like the past year. >> you don't want the russians to come too close, obviously? >> right. >> how close is too close? >> well, i don't know. i throw a definition out there the what we didn't want is to have a midair. we want to maintain level of safe sepp ratiaration. >> russian aircraft have come within 500 feet of u.s. planes. russian defense ministry released the video of one of the pilots checking out an american drone. the f-15, e strike fighters
armed with missiles that could shoot down a russian plane. this pilot doesn't thing it will ever come to that. >> if russians might be be us. let's get these dayquil liquid gels and go. but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. this one is max strength and fights mucus. mucinex fast max. the only cold and flu liquid gel that's max-strength and fights mucus. let's end this.
