tv   The Rachel Maddow Show  MSNBC  February 6, 2015 6:00pm-7:01pm PST

6:00 pm
"all in" for this evening, "the rachel maddow show" starts now. happy birthday sort of this is one month since the republicans took complete control of congress. and what a month it has been. first things first, because this is the modern republican party which the beltway keeps telling us is toe tollly over de-- totally over. they decided the up with they would run with would be a federal nationwide 20-week ban on abortion. they reason it through a committee, put it on a schedule. it was going to the floor of the house for a vote and then they yanked it. they pulled their own bill. the next one was a border bill.
6:01 pm
the republican's own border security bill. remember securing the border was all they wanted to talk about in the campaign for the last election. they ran it through committee. scheduled a vote on the house floor, ready to go on their own border security bill and then just like the abortion bill they yanked that one too. now this was not the republicans getting outmaneuvered. this was not the democrats figuring out how to block the republicans plans. this was just the republicans doing this to themselves. it was the republicans on their own not being able to get it together to pass their own legislation with only their own votes. they could not do it. there sf also a manufactured crisis. they started this crisis knowing that oklahomaland security is due to -- that homeland security is due to run out of money. so far the republicans, even though they are in complete control, they have not been able
6:02 pm
to pass a bill and right now apparently there is no plan for doing that. there is nothing in the works to avoid a shut down of the whole security department in just a couple weeks. to be fair, they managed to pass a bill as gas prices dropped below $2.00 a gallon. even republican voters want to combat climate change and they passed the bill at the end of a three-week period where there was no fewer than five significant pipeline explosions and ruptures in our country, including one that was less than a year old. and that rupture caused the largest spill of it's kind in state history. right after that okay everybody ready to vote on
6:03 pm
keystone? if you really want to talk futility the republican congress did also get up on it's hind legs and by some counts, for the 56th time they got up on their hind legs and they voted to repeal obama care again. can you smell the excitement? as the washington post summed up for much of the debate on repealing obama care for the 56th time no more than a dozen seats were occupied on the repeal it side of the house. more than once the republican party had nobody available to speak on their side at they geared up to do it one more time. it's like it is not even exciting any more, but they did do it for the 56th time. it has been one month, exactly since they took full control of
6:04 pm
congress. you know, but hope springs eternal. they're the only congress we've got, and we do all really need to have hope here that congress is up to the task of doing stuff that only congress can do. not only because the homeland security department is about to shut down but because they will finally have to do real work and make a serious decision on the matter of isis. the foreign relations committee in the senate, the foreign affairs committee in the house, they're expecting draft language for authorizing the use of military force against isis. foreign relations and foreign affairs will be the lead committees for dealing with this in congress but it is expected that there will be hearings and debate on this matter in the armed services committees and the intelligence committees. that may all start next week. it is a little awkward because the war effort is already sixth months old.
6:05 pm
there has been two,000 air strikes in the syria. congress is about to have to weigh in on it. from the structural perspective of our constitution and our divided system of government that is great news. congress is supposed to make those decisions. from our position as contemporary humans looking at this particular ridiculous congress and all it can't do it is scarey to imagine a decision like this in their hands. that work that debate that decision making will start in washington next week. they will have to get real serious real fast. today, meanwhile, cent-com confirms strikes. the u.s. only ever announces it's u.s. and coalition fighters carrying out those strikes, but the nation of jordan today for the second day said their planes were included in the attacks
6:06 pm
today. they continue to be enflamed about the killing of the pilot in the isis video this week. the air strikes ought to get some attention. the air strikes are not the only military part of this campaign. they're not the only fighting going on. richard engel, nbc's own, is in northern iraq right now with fighters who are fighting isis. the kurds have a semiontonomous area. they are holding the main road between iraq and syria and that part of this isis threatened territory. and the strategic importance here, if these fighters in northern iraq can continue to hold that position continue to control that road it is
6:07 pm
possible that isis could be split in half between these two countries. between iraq and syria again instead of how it has been for months now which is them controlling territory in both countries as a way this erases the border. we joined kurdish fighters in northern iraq. america's closer allies and travelled to their front line position just outside of mosul. the captain explained why they fought so hard to take and hold this ground. >> this position is strategic because from here we control the road from syria, he said. now we have cut it off, cutting the road means the kurds have severed isis's main supply line and isis wants it back. >> there was just a incoming round and luckily it overshot this position. you see where the fighters are
6:08 pm
looking. let's find a more secure area. >> the kurds fire back to keep back isis. sometimes mortar attacks followed by ambushes. the kurts took this base and have lost three men holding it. they will lose more unless they get more help from washington and soon. that was richard engel reporting from northern iraq today with these kurdish fighters. and all of the ground level fighting today about the air strikes and all of that is added to the sad news about this young american woman that has been in isis custody. we don't know her fate at this hour, but her family has given news organizations to release her name and photo so we can now tell you without worrying that
6:09 pm
her family believe it's will jeopardize her safety. she is kayla mueller from prescott prescott, arizona. she has done humanitarian work overseas. in 2012 she went to the turkish and syria border and tried to help syrian kids who had been displaced by the fighting in their country. on august 4th 2013 not last year but the year before her family says she was kidnapped by isis in the city of olepo after leaving a hospital. as recently as two weeks ago, there had been some specific information about her that led the u.s. to believe that kayla mueller was still alive in syria. none of that has been confirmed on the record by a named source but she has been held by isis for a very long time. the u.s. government has known
6:10 pm
that even though you have not heard her name in the press before today. she was reportedly one of the americans who the special operations groups were trying to rescue when they dropped in that high risk helicopter attempt last july. that was an attempt to find all american hostages held at that time. now, that raid last summer that special-ops raid in syria, it was not a fiasco. none of the special operators were killed or seriously wounded. there was one minor injury. they got in and safely got out of that most dangerous place on earth where they believed the hostages were being held. the place they went where they thought the hostages would be, the hostages were not there. after that raid three of the four americans held by isis, the three men, were all killed by
6:11 pm
isis in those brutal murders that isis turned into execution propaganda videos. all of this time it has been interesting that isis who reportedly have held her since august of 2013 they have never choesz chosen to parade her on camera. i will say there is speculation that in the internal logic of their theologically inflected crazy barbarity there was it was strategic that they didn't want to be filmed treating a woman the way they were treating the men. they have never paraded her on camera and they have never filmed an execution video of her. today, the day after jordan
6:12 pm
proudly proclaimed they were involved in the air strikes, now isis claiming jordan killed her. it wasn't isis that killed her after holding her for a year and a half. it may be true that she is dead, or killed in the air strikes, but there is reasons to be skeptical. i mean the first one is the most obvious. it is a little too tidy right? a little too perfect for them as an explanation especially if they didn't want to be responsible for killing her because she is a woman. that is convenient. simultaneously trying to deflate the patriotic ferver in jordan right now.
6:13 pm
they're trying to deflate that by blaming this hostage's death on jordan's air strikes. it is way too convenient. the second reason is they provided no evidence whatsoever that she was killed by those air strikes or any other means. the only thing isis publicized was this photo of a damaged building they say was in raqqa, but there is no images that prove that at all. then there the is third point. the location. the location in which they say she was killed. these are the air strike videos released by the pentagon today. this is the opening slate. jordanian air strikes. interesting, of course they're naming jordan as the country carrying these out since they have not been naming coalition
6:14 pm
companies, and hitting targets near al-hasakah. so it has been reported today that american aide worker kayla mueller was killed by air strikes while being held. even the claim is obviously of grave concern. it must be a very, very heroing time for her family. anyone who is taking isis's explanation of what happened here as truth, as the journalist
6:15 pm
istic truth, they are doing their propaganda work for them. it is like posting a isis propaganda video online for everyone to see, you have just done their work for them. they have earned the right to be known as liars. joining me is andrea mitchell great to see you, thank you for being here. you reported tonight on nightly news it was a shaky claim at best when isis said today that she was killed. why is it a shaky claim? >> for many of the reasons you sited. i'm so clad they yo were appropriately skeptical. first of all it is too
6:16 pm
convenient. right after the rallying in a previously divided country about the wisdom of these coalition air strikinges including the father of the dead pilot. now you have a region united. the other arab leaders. they're so repulsed and isis went too far, and perhaps it was a turning point. now 24 hours later. they killed the american hostage. far too convenient. plus the location. they showed us a picture, we don't know if that is in raqqa, the rubble. and the jordanian and u.s. led coalition did not hit, if e with are to believe, the pentagon and coalition leaders, they didn't hit any targets there, they were
6:17 pm
140 miles away. that doesn't make sense. we have not seen any proof, and in the past they have come up with evidence visual evidence that is fairly rapidly confirmed by the education perts and the intelligence officials and acknowledged by jordan by the white house. that has not happened in this case. so there is reason to hope. the fact they are liars, the fact that the jordanian pilot was dead for weeking before they started negotiating for his release, and intelligence established that that also leads one to believe that something horrible could have happened to her and they did not acknowledge her death. one hopes and the family hopes, and we just have to hope and pray that she is still alive and the lack of evidence bears that out. i have covered a lot of stories as you know. this got to me. i felt that i knew her somehow in reading about her, in absorbing the information about
6:18 pm
her, and in keeping it secret at the request of the family agreed to by the government that the best hope was to not make this too big of a deal. to not feed into the propaganda machine. we tried to keep it as quiet as possible until this announcement today. and she is like all of your young idealistic and young women in our news room today. they were devastated by this and i found myself reacting and channelling their aspirations that a young woman that would go to this border join doctors without borders as a volunteer, who previously had been in india, israel, palestine and came back to flagstaff and worked in an hiv aids clipnic,
6:19 pm
she is the best of america and we hope she is alive. >> and because she was held so long. so have held the story and to have seen her story having to hold on to this hope for so long. knowing what she has been through, and the terrifying circumstances she has been in. i feel like the only responsible thing we can say now is admit what we don't know. andrea mitchell thank you so much. thank you. >> thank you rachel. >> all right, we have breaking news next we're just getting into the news room. i have not even fully digested it yet. it is about the fight against isis breaking from the justice department and we have that ahead, stay with us.

6:24 pm
large. this is just in breaking news here to help me understand this is pete williams. thank you for joining us what is going on with this story. >> well the justice department says a st. louis man named abdullah rozara and saying that he went to syria and people were supporting him. sending him clothing firearms accessories, camouflage gloves and other kinds of things that would help him. the people that have been charged here three of them are from the st. louis year. a husband and wife that are 40 and 35. one is from utica, new york, and another from chicago. they are charged with indirectly
6:25 pm
supported isis by supporting this man who the government says went to syria in 2013 and they say they believe he was killed last year at some point. >> is he named as one of the people who they are charging even if they believe he has been killed? >> no and for that reason they're not charging him. they say they believe he is dead, and therefore he can't be charged of the six that were charged, as you point out, they say that five were arrested in the united states. the sixth, and they don't tell us which it is is still overseas. they don't want to give that person a heads up that they're on to that person. they're trying to get that other country to make the arrest. >> so the person who received this material support from the united states, at least according to the complaint is believed to have been killed but one of the people alleged to have sent that material support is no longer in the united
6:26 pm
states and is being sought abroad? >> that's right. they do say that one of these six people the person who lived in utica, new york tried to go to syria, but did not succeed. so we don't know who the other person is and we don't at this point know what country that other person is in. >> one last quick question for you. do we know is it an allegation these six people were working stogt or they form any sort of sell, that they were in a group in this country, or was this averaged by happenstance because they have different connects to this dead isis fighter. >> it is not clear how they came to know each other. what the government says is that he communicated by social media, facebook, and sometimes by phone and used coded language. it is not clear from this relatively bare bones indictment
6:27 pm
that was just been unveiled tonight whether they were all in essence in cahoots with him before he left the country, or whether he formed some alliances with him after they got there. in any event, the government says they sent this material to him through the postal service to turkey and then intermediaries took it from turkey into syria and gave it to him. >> pete williams thank you for joining us on short notice i really appreciate your help with this. >> thank you. >> breaking news from pete williams is that an indictment was just been unsealed tonight. six people charged with material support for isis fighters. specifically one isis fighter who had become an actualized citizen in the united states. went to syria, fought for isis and was killed there b with six people are being charged with helping him fight and sending him stuff. five of the six people are under arrest. another is being sought.

6:31 pm
the first one tonight is an important one, you have probably seen this story in the last 24 or 48 hours. a lot of media reports in the lath day or so. federal investigators released a
6:32 pm
new federal investigation into governor chris christie and his administration. no not the bridge thing where the christie administration may have closed down lanes on a bridge to gridlock one town. this is a different thing and no not the hobokin thing where they say they may have stiffed the city on super storm saddy recovery money. no, not that thing, this is a different thing. also it is not the jersey city thing where local officials said the christie administration stuck that city with economic efforts. it is a different thing. it is also not the travel thing, and the rga thing where governor christie has taken gifts from people with business before the state. not that thing either. not even the other brand new
6:33 pm
thing where his mentor and top appointee to an agency called the port authority has been asked to explain basically whether he got united airlines to do him the favor of creating a brand new flight route between newark and his vacation home for the duration of the time that he was chairman of the port authority and the united airlines had business before the port authority. they reportedly canceled the chairman's flight after said chairman had to resign from the port authority last spring. i know it is a little hard to keep track of all of the investigations and allegations that fall around governor christie christie. i know it is hard to keep track sometimes of what is following him around. but the chris christie story that we're talking about here is one that you might remember from way back. that is about the cat police. it is a case that originated in
6:34 pm
hunterdon county. with fake kre dencredentials and part of the spca. we have reposted our segment on this story at maddow blog tonight in case you want to watch it again, it's great. so for all of the details, the allegations of wrong doing for governor chris christie and his add minministration boil down to the prosecutor saying the christie administration quashed his indictment against some of the christie al lies. and ben farlin has been pursuing
6:35 pm
this case for a long time. the new reports this week are sort of shocking. federal investigators are now launched a formal from criminal investigation into this hunterdon scandal. so you mielgt have seen those headline -- might have seen those headlines this week. is it true? you have seen the headlines about it this week. is it true or is that false? false. or at least we don't know. here is the thing. ben varlin the local prosecutors, has been spoken to by federal investigators. he has been asked about his allegations against governor chris christie. that does not necessarily mean there is a new formal federal criminal investigation into the administration. the headlines have been juicy but they have been overblown.
6:36 pm
we spoke to the former prosecutor ben barlyn today and he says he spoke to prosecutors and he has no idea if an investigation has been launch into his allegations. they would not confirm or deny whether they did speak with ben barlyn, but they say reports characterizing a investigator speaking with ben barlyn those reports are, and i quote, a tremendous leap forward. we talk to people all of the time. it doesn't mean we're investigating anybody. any characterization that we are investigating the governor about this is just not true." and that is the horse's mouth. so there is a federal criminal investigation about bridgegate as far as we can tell but not this unrelated scandal, there
6:37 pm
may be another for the cat police story at some point, but if there is yet, nobody knows about it and the prosecutor is not saying. so national news organizations jumped the gun on this one, don't believe the hype.
