tv   Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace  FOX  December 27, 2015 10:00am-11:00am EST

10:00 am
i'm doug mechanic cel way in for chris. and it's iowa or bust. if we don't do well in that state, then i don't know how i translate that into a great surge going forward. >> mike huckabee on make or rivals. exclusive. holiday travelers may no longer be able to opt out of the controversial body scanners. >> i flew right after 9/11.
10:01 am
this i'm feeling comfortable with. >> i don't think this is effect inch. we'll ask congressman peter king about the change and what's being done to keep the country safe. plus when does political commentary go too far? we'll ask our sunday panel about the controversy offer an editorial cartoon of ted cruz and his children. >> not much ticks me off, but making fun of my girls will do it. hello from fox news in washington. we begins with another round of string of deadly tornadoes this time in the dallas area. at least eight people are dead, the twisters touching down leaving a path of damage stretching over 40 miles just southeast and north of the city. on the other side of the state, the same storm system is expected to leave at least 18 inches of snow.
10:02 am
game between miami and want state in el paso. it follows several days in the southeast as is pawned tornadoes and massive flooding. meanwhile, the eastern third of the country could set record temperatures today, including here in the nation's capital, where we could see a high in the mid 70s. meteorology it's janis dean is covering it all. >> hi, doug. we still have the threat for strong staerms today, even severe weather east of the dallas area moving in towards arkansas, louisiana and mississippi. tomorrow's threat diminishing quite a bit, but we could see large hail and damaging winds across portion of the southeast. a dozen states. we have the potential for 4 to 8 inches of additional rainfall over the next couple days, and across a wide swath of the
10:03 am
saturated ground. and grown the rivers continue to rise. looking at the future radar, doug, snow behind this system, a mixture of freezing rain or ice as we head into monday. the heavy rain threat continues. by tuesday, moving into the northeast, where they could get an additional 6 to 8, even 12 inches of snow. there's your forecast snowfall. also want to make mention we have the potential for blizzard conditions over texas and numb numb many towards the southern plains. meanwhile, janice, what is it with the balmy temperatures were experiencing here? >> we have set records christmas eve eve, christmas day, and through the weekend. we have this frontal system that hasn't really budged and all of this southerly air moving in order were. take a look at the temperatures on monday. 42 in new york city, still very warm, and in some cases, we saw temperatures colder in phoenix
10:04 am
so the temperatures are going to moderate a bit, as we head into tuesday, still very cold air coming from from canada, but you can see it's starting to move into the southeast, the ohio valley, in towards the northeast, but long-range forecasts are still showing a pattern of warmer than average temperatures for the east coast well into january. >> janice dean, thank you very much. and now to presidential politicians. just more than a month now to the nation's first voting mike huckabee. but it's a different story this time around. huckabee is currently polling eighth in the state at only 2.3% according to the latest real clear politics average. this week he said he will likely end his campaign if he did not finish in the top three. governor huckabee joins me. welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> thanks, doug, great to be back with you.
10:05 am
about, do you have an announcement to make right now? >> of course not. not one person in all of america has even voted. i get so amazed that people act like this is all settled. i go back to the iowa caucuses, john kerry won when he wasn't supposed to. barack obama won when he wasn't supposed to, i won and nobody thought that was going to happen, rick santorum won, he was seventh place -- or sixth place out of the seven candidates. five days out from the caucuses, so everybody wants to base it on polls that have polled two or 300 people. why don't we wait until the voters make a position. how is your ground game in iowa? >> it's terrific. we've spend more time there than in addition, organizations in all 99 counties.
10:06 am
cochairmen, people stretched out to the preextinct levels. we did a phone survey of 5,000 people in iowa. doug, what we found was 75% of people in iowa haven't made up their minds. 58% said they're not even leaning one way or another, so this idea that this is all sewed up or fixed, i've been in that state enough to know it's just not quite like that. and if you stay in it, you've got to play hardball, it ain't beanbag, as they say. a super-pac closely aligned with you has been running an ad criticizing senator ted cruz. let's take a look at thanks listen to cruz raise money from lib las who don't share or conservative iowa values. >> you would say it's a top three priority for you? >> no. >> i have been accused of deceptively editing what cruz
10:07 am
in new york last summer. "the washington post", the fix pointed out that after the cruz said no in that comment, he quickly expanded on the point, no, i would say defending the constitution is a stop priority and that cuts across the whole spectrum whether it's defending the first amendment, religious liberties, stopping courts from making public policies that should be left to the people, and that the tenth amendment cuts across a lot of these issues. isn't that selective editing? >> not at all. there was nothing deceptive. he's made a pitch to evangelicals as a person who is utterly authentic, he's going to protect the right of people to disagree with decisions on same-sex marriage, but that's not what you heard in that manhattan fund-raiser. that's the only thing i have pointed out. obviously i had nothing to do with the ad. as you well know, candidates cannot communicate in any way,
10:08 am
with people who run a super-pac. so there is no coordinate or communication there, but it's just a matter of listening to the transcript and recognizing that it's not a big issue when he's in manhattan, but it is a much bigger issue in iowa. we all are looking for people who are consistent, you say the same things regardinger regardless of where you are geographically and you don't take a different position or slightly nuanced, because it would help you or hurt you with manhattan fund-raisers and people who are the big-dollar donors in what i cause the washington to wall street axis of party. >> this intra-party gop bashing harkins back to the 2012 campaign when we had somewhat the same dynamic, including mitt romney, who all of the candidates were spending their war chests on attacking each overt spending his money on
10:09 am
an examination of how the two campaigns have spent their money starkly illustrates the huge advantage over 'bama will have. spared a primary opponent, the president's reelection campaign had pumped near lir $79 million. i there similar liabilities for the gop this time around? >> no, and doug, i think there's a big difference between showing some legitimate contrast and bashing. i don't think anybody in the gop so much has bashed another candidate, maybe there's been a little bit here and there, but it certainly hasn't been by me. i don't think that anything that i have said has been going after a candidate. it's really pointing out that for those people for whom issues like the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage are critical, important, nonnegotiables, i think they certainly need to understand where candidates stand and make sure that they have a candidate who stands the same wherever he
10:10 am
according to the geography of place. >> as you well know, donald trump is not the front-runner in iowa, but in many, many nationwide polls, he is just pulling ahead of the pac. he does this, despite the sexual slang that he used to describe hillary's loss in 2008, yet he remains atop these nationwide polls despite numerous gulp. what is xweev newses in to falling? >> the amount of athens that guys like fox news and everybody else gives him. in the day after he made the comment, donald trump got 25 times more media attention on television than all other gop candidates combined. so it's very difficult -- some of us are saying thing that are substantive. for example, when i'm talking about getting the wages up for the bottom 90% of the workers who have had stagnant wages for 40 years, or if i talk about the merits of the fair tax, how we
10:11 am
our if i focus on getting the veterans system cleaned up by making members of congress get their health care as well as from their families until they clean it up, you know, it's not that all of america is hearing that. >> you know as well that fox news that is spent a lot of time criticizing donald trump's comments, and we hear it from his followers, no doubt. does hi popularity have anything to do with the generalize the coursening of the culture? >> people are seething mad. they feel like this government is completely oblivious to protecting them. they go through metal detectors, they take their shoes off to get on a plane to see grandma at christmas, and yet, you know, here comes a terrorist coming in who pass it is all kinds of background checks and goes and shoots up a christmas party
10:12 am
employees. people see that and they're angry. they're angry at the fact that there's a handful of people who get richer and rich ever. a lot of people work harder and harder. they've got nothing to show for it. there is frustration. they're frustrated when they watch republicans pass a huge multitrillion spending pill that welcomes syrian refugees, that doesn't do a thing about obamacare. basically gives the democrats everything they said, the republicans nothing. people are just so incredibly angry and understandably so. >> many longtime respected political analysts say mr. trump cannot win a general election and here's way. larry sabada from the university of virginia. >> trump cannot appeal to swing voters in the key states like ohio and florida, virginia,
10:13 am
and the swing states are where the election is. >> will he be the nominee? >> of course i will. that's what we pledged to do. i'm frustrated the party made such a big deal insists that donald trump be loyal to the party, about that goes both ways. the party abouter be loyal to whoever the gnome knee is. ice we have no system, nothing at all. all these guys who say trump can't be the nominee? if they're so smart, how come none of them predicted -- how come none of them who would be leading or trailing. how come -- and if they're so wrong about that, why on earth should anybody in america believe them about who will be the nominee and who isn't? >> that's your ticket to the iowa caucuses, i assume, right? >> why not? nchts governor huckabee, thank
10:14 am
>> thank you, doug. great to be with you. up next, choice words about hillary clinton, our panel joins us. plus what would you like to ask the panel about donald trump's history of controversial remarks? just go to facebook or this is a story about doers, the artificial heart, electric guitars and rockets to the moon. it's the story of america- land of the doers. doin' it. did it. done. doers built this country. the dams and the railroads. john henry was a steel drivin' man hmm, catchy. they built the golden gates and the empire states. and all this doin' takes energy there's all kinds of doin' up in here. or what they're doin'. what the heck's he doin? and it's our job to to keep doers doin' the stuff doers do...
10:15 am
she was going to beat obama.
10:16 am
how does it get worse? she was going -- she was favored to wing and she got [ bleep ]. >> i've had a lot of bad things said about me. that's why we stand up to bullies wherever they are and we shouldn't let anybody bully their way into presidency. that's not who we are as americans. hillary clinton reacting to crude language by donald trump earlier this week, as he commented on her first run for the white house. it's time for our sunday group. "the weekly standard." nina easton, and former democratic senator evan bayh. thank you for joining us today. this is not the first time -- he called rosie o'donnell a fat pig, a slob, appeared to make reference to megyn kelly's
10:17 am
praised vladimir putin. he didn't know what the nuclear triad was, our ballistic armor of submarines, bombers and missiles. he called senator mccain no war hero, and it goes on and on. with each perceived gaff, he rises in the polls. >> he's defying the normal laws of gravity. any of these would have brought a normal candidate down to earth. >> his core supporters love the fact he's not politically correct. so these comments judd endear him to each more standpoint is the fact that he's made statements thatter verifiable are the mainstream media and political class are loathed by his supporters, so that doesn't hurt him.
10:18 am
him, being all professor sabatos said, it makes him unelectal. independent, swing voters will not go for this. in the long. >> nina? >> i think senator bayh is exactly right. the important thing to remember about the rise of donald trump is the economic forces behind this. this is economic populism, blue-collar, white voters, very much his became. noncollege educated voters, he's way, way up there. if you look at him among college educated voters. he's fourth. a top four, he's up there, but not far and away the favorite the way he is. so there's a tremendous amount of anger. you have to look at the median incomes have stagnated, and there is been a drop of incomes for working-class folks, particularly since the financial
10:19 am
you look at what he puts in his speeches. he talks about free trade. he talks about shipping jobs overseas, so forth. this stuff appeals to people even beyond the politically correct/unpolitically correct notes he makes. >> and let's look at the latest national poll. c/o -- cnn/orc, but back in 2008 rudy julianist held the position that donald trump holds, so a word of warnings and i think governor huckabee alluded to this. >> it is, really trump has proven to be more canny on how to stay atop. it's a much bigger field. it's been a field that has been
10:20 am
unable to touch him. you heard that frustration in what huckabee said to you earlier. he honestly don't know what to do. they blame it on the media, saying there's been too much attention to paid to him while he's leading. there's a reason that people are paying attention to him. another observation about trump's durability is he's been completely immune to fact checking. i mean, i think as you both alluded to, one of his strengths has been to turn around criticism and deflect it. he's able to do that really well. it makes it very difficult to know, you know, as a reporter sort of where to go, right? you want to evaluate him on the same objective scale that we use for everyone else. he's sort of immune to it. >> you say he ran or runs a canny campaign, but i'm reminded's you said that of winston churchill's court is the best argument against democracy
10:21 am
with the average voter. his campaign is devoid of -- steve, joe paladino writes on twitter -- when will he start talking about policy substance instead of people? >> that's a good question. he gave an interview on "fox & friends" and he said he hopes the field is winnowed, because he wants more time in the debate to flesh out his policy proposals. he really doesn't have much. i would be interested to see how he fills that time, because he doesn't know much about policy, but ironically that's one of the him. i think anne's point, you're absolutely right. i have tried repeatedly with limited success, but if you're a trump voter, you think everybody in washington lies. you think that for some reason. that's not just out of the blue. i think there's one primarily
10:22 am
define the race, and that is, will the people who today say they support donald trump be trump voters in february, march and beyond. if they will, donald trump is the nominee, period. that's the way it's going to unfold. you talk to other people from campaigns about hour donald trump falters, and they don't really have an explanation. i think you have plausible -- he might, you know, give a crazy speech like he gave when ben carson surged. that could hurt him. on the other hand, the ben carson speech didn't hurt him, so what's the moment where he falters? >> the falters is such wish many thinking. mike huckabee won the iowa caucuses. rick santorum squeaked by in the iowa caucuses. this is not going to be a deathblow for donald trump. >> he's got a floor of voters
10:23 am
checking, don't care about the statements he's making, but i think he also has a ceiling. so i think the question is 50.1 percent of republicans willing to embrace this? my guess at the end of the day, no, but he's a phenomenon that will go all the way to the convince. >> some people have suspected his rise in sustainability gives thought to of demise of the republican party. the left-leans center of the america progress points to the dlemta for the gop. two points fewer whites, and that's held through for several election cycles. they say ma the center for american progress, quote -- the main challenges are twofold. first an overreliance on white votes at the expense of buildings a broad of coalition in battleground states.
10:24 am
exclusive and exclusionary. >> they would be saying that about any new, republicans would have a very different time. i happen to see the issue said is very good for republicans right now. voters are more skeptical of government than at any time include, in the post watergate constitutional crisis. that's a time for republicans to be making a fact-based argument for smaller government. instead what we're getting is the trump clown show. >> indeed there are two gov candidates, cruz an rubio, who on could potentially fight that trend that they are speaking of. >> i think both cruz and rubio have used that to their advantage, certainly their youth, their ethnicity, just their obvious difference from the others on the stage, they use that with the others and
10:25 am
them against hillary clinton, used particularly. i think you're right that absolutely cap would be making the same argument about any republican, but i think it's also useful to remember that reince priebus made the same argument. he has identified and many thoughtful republicans have identified the long-term demographic problem. >> the demographic problem is real. 24th won about the same percent as ronald reagan. >> it's true they -- eventually the republican party will respond to that in the way that will allow the republican party to survive. my own party in a lifetime carried with one state. they came back more to the mainstream and now is rising.
10:26 am
we have seen that coming on very, very strength. ong. he's also firing back again a cartoon that depicted his two daughters as monkeys. >> all of us learned in kindergarten -- don't hit little girls. it's not complicated, don't make fun of 5-year-old girl and a 7-year-old girl. >> the origin was a political ad that cruz had produced where it looked like he was reading "the night before christmas." and in fact it's "how obamacare stole christmas" and" frosty, the speaker of the house." is it fair? >> no, i would leave them out. it's a general rule that you leave children of candidates out.
10:27 am
he's leading in five of seven. includes "the des moines register." >> the thing with mike huckabee and the super-pac, i think he is being unfairly questioned. not just because of the selective editing we saw with the huckabee super-pac undertake, but he actually answered the question in a way that -- there really is no there there, but you're seeing his opponents precisely because he's leading in iowa, try to smack him for it. by often referring to the constitution that defense his position. particular case. there are only a few rules in politics left. ultimately everything is sort of out there in the public report, but one them is, leave the kids out "the washington post" did cartoon. whether the average voter
10:28 am
constitutional nuance remains to be seen, but, if same-sex marriage and gay rights is your driving issue, you know -- and for those rights, you know your candidates. if you're an evangelical, you know that ultimately you'll probably be safe with him. we have to take a break on. a new message report friday from the leader of the islamic state, that alive and well, and we'll discuss more with peter king.
10:29 am
use the #fns. every year, the amount of data your enterprise uses goes up. smart devices are up. cloud is up. analytics is up. seems like everything is up except your budget. introducing comcast business enterprise solutions. with a different kind of network that delivers the bandwidth you need without the high cost. because you can' the business of tomorrow
10:30 am
a look outside the beltway, at times square where the 2016 sign has arrived. security is certainly on the minds of tourists an residents alike in the city that is been on high alert since last month. to discuss, let's bring in peter king, a member of the house homeland security committee. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, doug. i'd like to get your reaction to news that a purported audio tame from al back tar al baghdadi says that
10:31 am
the u.s.-led coalition has done much damage. >> i would expect al baghdadi to say that, but unfortunately overall he is probably right that after 15, 16 months of air attacks by the u.s., it's had minimal impact on isis, considering how long those attacks have been going on. as far as the russians they're focusing most of their attacks on the syrians resistance as opposed to isis, so isis is as strong, stronger than i believe it was 16 months ago. they certainly have a larger land mass under their control, not just in iraq and syria, but afghanistan. as we know, they also intend to attack the united states. i would say in the last several months it's become clear they do u.s. just last friday, the tsa announced it is going to require full body scans for some traveling passengers.
10:32 am
quote, some passengers will be required to undergo full body screening if warranted by security considerations. he said this will occur in a limited number of circumstances. what do you infer from this change in procedure? >> well, i do believe it's only going to be very limited number of people, but there will be reasons for it, security reasons why certainly people will be chosen for this and required to go through it. i can't go into the reasons now, but there will be definite reasons why, and also, doug, it's related to two events unone is there's been a series of snipper general inspections, which have shown that tsa -- too much has gotten through, that the inspections have not been effective enough, and that's why you're going to see this extra level of security directly against certain people.
10:33 am
related to the failure of those tsa testings in the past? or is it related perhaps to some evidence uncovered in recent terrorist attas, san bernardino or paris? >> i would say it's both. the fact is past inspections have not been effective enough, and the fact that isis is planning increased attacks against the u.s. i just wish the tsa -- and i think the admiral is doing a good job, but i wish they would lay the groundwork for what they're doing, because i think there will be reaction, people will think there will be tremendous delays. there are sound reasons why it's being done. i hoe when they roll it out, they do it in the least intrusive way possible. we live in a very dangerous world, and people have to realize that. >> turning to another issue, the cross of of illegal immigrants
10:34 am
dhs said in the past two months, the number of families crossing has risen sharply. just over 12,500 families were apprehended in october and november, compared to 4500 during the same two months in 2014. what is causing this uptick in border crossings? >> this is a story that handle been covered that much. i'm not sure why, but there is a fact. doug, this is really the case of almost politics of false compassion. i remember when those unintended minors, unaccompanied minors were coming across the border, and, you know, your hearts counter to go out to them, but the fact is the ones who have suffered the most are the people living in the lower income communities in the united states. that's where the kids go, and they're not ready for the schools. 9 i know here in long island,
10:35 am
numbers of ms-13 gang incidents have risen. it's not their fault. they're not prepared educationally or socially. again it's not white people living on the east side of manhattan. they'll be going into underprivileged communities, communities having a tough time already, and already this added burden of having kids coming in. again, you feel bad for the kids, but the ones -- are trying to survive, you know, under very tough conditionses. congressman, i want to turn to trifl on the home front. you have said somewhat controversy yeah we need better surveillance of mosques in the united states, quoting you. the only way you're going to find out this in advantage is to do the same time of 24/7 surveillance that was done in the italian-american communities. when they're going after the westies, you look at where the terror threat is going to come from. right now it's from the muslim community.
10:36 am
libertarians and constitutionalists right now congressman. >> they can cry all they want. the fact is that's where the threat is coming from. 98%, 99% -- i'm actually swearing in the first elected muslim on long aisle, a good friend of mine. this is nothing against muslims, but the fact is that is where the threat is coming from. we have this blind political correctness that makes no sense. for instance, in boston, with the bombing, you have the tsarnaev brother who was put out of a mosque because of his radical thoughts and stapes in the mosque, but not in the mosque told the police or the fbi. if they had known that in advance, you combine that with the fact that the russians had already told us to be on the lookout for him, we could have prevented possibly the boston marathon bombing. we've had a number of muslims from where i lived, you find out
10:37 am
spoken very radically, but no police. there's numerous occasions -- >> i wanted to ask you about that next. having been privy to classified briefings and intelligence matter, do you know of specific cases where people in the muslim community versus reticent, for lacks of a better term, to rat out suspected terrorists oar poem who see something, say something, are reticent to do that? >> more often than not. w50e6d people in mosques here who have spoken radically who spoke of their interpretations to be involved in jihad. it was never told to the police at all. when you talk to police off the record, they will at the time you they get very little cooperation. this was one iman in new york
10:38 am
when they heard that the -- was coming to new york ando they went to the imam, asked him for some help. the first thing he did was tip off the father of the bomber. he was the one guy they trusted and he tipped off the enemy. congressman, what kind of limits are being placed on u.s. investigative agencies that prevents them from infiltrating the mosques or pursuing sources they know cook beneficial -- could be beneficial. >> in norm the civil liberties union, "new york times" have tried to cut back on that. i think mayor de blasio made too many consection. they're still doing a great job, but that's in spite of the restraints, but as far as the feds, they are very limited. they can no infiltrate any mosque, and i believe it has to be done.
10:39 am
today. >> thank you. certainly the person who replaces president obama will have to deal with these jeb bush: donald, you know, is great at the one-liners. but he's a chaos candidate. and he'd be a chaos president. two months ago, donald trump said that isis was not our fight. donald trump: let syria and isis why do we care? let isis and jeb bush: he said that would be a great donald trump: hillary's always surrounded herself with very good people. i think hillary would do a good job. jeb bush: and he gets his foreign policy experience from the shows. chuck todd: who do you talk to for military advice right now? donald trump: well, i watch the shows. i mean, i really see
10:40 am
watch your show and all of the other shows... jeb bush: i don't know if that's saturday morning, or sunday morning. donald, you're not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency. that's not going to happen. if i'm president, i'll be a commander-in-chief, not an agitator-in-chief or a that i will lead this country in a way that will create greater security and greater safety. announcer: right to rise usa is responsible for the

every year, the amount of data your enterprise uses goes up. smart devices are up. cloud is up. analytics is up. seems like everything is up except your budget. introducing comcast business enterprise solutions. with a different kind of network that delivers the bandwidth you need
tv-commercial
10:42 am
because you can' t build the business of tomorrow on the network of yesterday. our most important job is to keep americans safe. the united states continue toss lead a global coalition in our mission to destroy isil. isil has lost about 40% of what it once controlled and losing territory in sir gentleman. >> president obama at the end of hissh which stands very much in contrast to a tape-recorded
10:43 am
released just yesterday in which he maintains the air strikes against isis are having little effect. we're now back with the panel. steve, your observations? >> that wasn't the only thing in contrast. if you listen carefully. you would think that gwinnett tan mo and closing guantanamo is a key priority for the president and key magnet, as he said it, for isis. it was never mentioned at any time in the 24-minute video that al baghdadi released. it's never been a part of the propaganda, yet the president is insistent on closing it. i think the way that the u.s. and the coalition is taking ramadi will virtually ensure that whatever short-term games
10:44 am
on the pmus and iranian-backed shiite militias. you have ramadi the heart of the surge, and it is reason it worked with we worked with sunnis and neutralized shia militias. this times we're taking on the local sunnis in addition to isis, and in many cases we're working with the shiite militias, so huge contrasts. to be sure, whoever inhertz the job, the next president will inherit thinks jobs and they're all speaking about it for some degree or another. let's look at a montage of perspectives. >> i do not believe we should again have 100,000 american troops in combat in the middle east. that is just not the smart move to make here. >> we will have a president who will 345ik clear we will utterly
10:45 am
we will carpet bomb them into oblivion. >> it would be so great if we could get russia on our side and other countries on our side and knock the hell out of isis. just knock the living hell out of them. >> it's unfair to diminish their perspectives to those sound bites, with the exception of possibly donald trump, but assuming isis is ultimately defeated, what replaces it? who fillsed next vacuum created by the defeat of isis? this is something that nobody is touching. >> one thing that the islamic state teaches us is something always fills the vacuum. it's an outgrowth of al qaeda, which had its origins, as you say, in many respects in the
10:46 am
certainly what i think we hearty is the voice of a would-bess wartime leader. he's trying to be a beat gent in that address. the time of that address is interesting, because he had suffered a few battlefield reversals, and essentially trying to respond to the combination of threats he now faces, which are primarily from the united states and russia. at one time he might have thought that russia would be, if not a friend, at least a benign force for him. so i think one thing that we'll have toss among the political candidates is how well they address that question, what is your long-term strategy for what is basically allowing one thing to flow from another? and how does the united states position itself to not look like the enemy, not look like it's exacerbating the problem in the
10:47 am
there to try to be a force for good. >> nina? >> just with the terrific, the year after 9/11, there are 1,000 attacks. the past year there were 30,000. and we see them from groups not just isis and al qaeda, but throughout north africa and other places, so it's a worldwide global threat, so i think the president would once again do well not to downplayed that flint baghdadi was also targeting saudi arabia for the false brand of islam? why? they have put together a 34-member nation coalition to go after isis. the kingdom where a lot of the extremism that fuels isis has come from now feels like isis is an existential threats. there have been attacks one saudi arabia, but i do think
