russians warned us twice, they interrogated him twice, and said no big problem. i am worried about, is this notion we are no calling it what is, because we don't want to offense anything, it is radical islamists that want to kill us, it is like the harry potter movie, he who cannot be named. the problem is, if you don't recognize it exists you will never see it coming. lou: john brennan said he does not want to call them jihadists or radical islamists, i never heard, i will say it straight up that is pure pab lem, i have talked with middle east dislol scholars, and arabists, came up with a definition, jihad and the
call in collided in radical is islamist. >> the people who understand this best of muslims, the unwillingness of a john brennan or obama or others to describe it in accurate terms precludes us from responding effectively. lou: can someone tell me why in the world we're watching a administration that initially refuse to call it a terrorism. they have not acknowledged it is seated in any radical islamist world view. what is the point of this? when are we going to see a brake through here in the -- breakthrough in the mind set of the government, we should point out, this is a mind set that was shared by the bush administration,. >> at the end certainly. lou: early as 2002, a major
issue went to use expression radical i islamist this nation will destroy itself if we cannot speak honestly about our enemies. >> it is okay we'll pass the immigration bill, and 11 million people will get citizenship. lou: your sense of -- >> i think you are right, it is about a mind set they decided we don't you know political correctness, we don't want to talk about anything that might discriminate. we put blinders on the reality, it is time little bit at political correctness took a back say the to common sense, if we're blinded to the challenge we'll never adequately -- >> this is an ideology that believes that america's presence in the world is too strong our support for israel is too strong. >> the administration? >> the administration, the war on terrorism as defined by the bush administration.
-- >> have to be care we were talking about mind set of the well. >> you are right, administration has a narrative, we killed bin laden terrorism is over, on to the next. lou: to israel quickly, secretary of defense hague nel hagel in israel, suggesting a $10 million arms deal. also, something for everyone. hagel said this visit cairo, and riyadh and abu dhabi and united arab emirates with the fighter jets, we do not want to leave anyone out in middle east. >> this reveals about this obama administration is contrary to their public record, this is and hagel makes this argument this is a deterrents arm sales package in his view, against iran this is a concession this obama administration is not going to do anything ni military bircmilitaryabout the iranian nn
program. >> santa clause is coming to town but dio john is right, we'e contain it. lou: overtime, secretary of state kery in istanbul, saying all of the entities all 6 nations involved in the talks will funnel their money through one rebel group in syria, right or wrong? >> a bad choice, bad idea to fund the rebel groups. >> there are houses of rebel groups, who are you going to fund, bad idea. lou: john thank you, and kt thank you. >> much more on the boston bombings flew out tonight's broadcast and what what early investigations are reveals. >> immigration reform. is it about the national

lou: president obama wants immigration legislation on his desk and he means right away, the "gang of 8" wants an immediate vote, chairman patrick leahy is holding three hearing on the bill, one last friday, one today and one tomorrow they are done, which had to be one tomorrow had to be added because homeland security secretary
napolitano withdrew from friday's hearing over development in boston, she had to be there to manage the matter. so why do you think they are in such a rush? this is a faster pace than obamacare. we know how that turned out. almost half of our senators were not in offers the last time immigration reform was being debated ied in 2006 and 07. you think they would want more people. everyone talks about a path to is the ship for erst maded 11 -- citizenship forever estimated 11 million immigrants, i don't know anyone that believes that number, don't you think these congressional hearings should reflect a definnive inive defin? that is one question there are more, looking at some questions, how many illegal immigrants in this nation are educat educated?
we don't know. at what level are they educated? we don't know. how many graduated from high school? we don't know. how many have a college degree? if you thought we don't know, you are right. how many have jobs? we don't know. how many have skill? what kind of skills? we still don't know. how many don't have jobs ? how many -- well how many make a living wage? how much do they make? we don't know. how many pay taxes? we don't know. how many will pay taxes if they get jobs? how much will they pay in taxes? we don't know. what is the real cost of illegal immigration to the u.s.? the real cost? hohonest square, accounting?
what is this answer. what are those illegal immigrants paying in taxes and providing in the way of services to others in this country, some are i imencely productive? what is the cost of the jobs they hold, is there no cost? is it true they only work in industries where americans don't top work. this that is find just give us an answer, do we as a nation make money? do we benefit? do we prosper because of illegal immigration. you hear everyone say we're a nation of immigrants, why don't they say a nation of illegal immigrants? the questions go on and on, is the path to citizenship appropriate? is it good or bad for the
economy? it is good for american society. the real question becames after 10 years of debating this issue, why in the world don't we havv these answers? that's the big question. if you have been watching politics, and washington as long as i have, you know when they don't answer questions in washington, it is because they don't think that american people are going to like the answers. and so that i want to run it by you. i could write question marks all over the board to represent the questions that have not been asked. and more to those who are not answered. there can be one reason, those running our government, don't like the questions, they think we won't like the answers. that is why we need real hearings where citizens get to express themselves, a careful, thoughtful process, senate poses as a great deliberative body but
they treat us as if we're subjects rather than citizens, they need a strong reminder, that we're indeed citizens, we have every right to demand these answers, and our elected officials have every responsibility to provide answers to all of the questions. >> republican party has conducted what itself liters call an autopsy, ed rawlins and michael goodwin take pulse of the g.o.p. >> small community of west, texas trying to get back to normal after last week's deadly explosion, we'll have the latest. >> and suspect number 2 gets his miranda warning, he is not an enemy combatant on dobb's law did the government get it wrong? next.

committee to crimen u.s. soil so he cannot be tried in a military tribunal for that reason. the other way he could be tried is if there is indisputable evidence so we have heard reports it has to be clear and convincing evidence he has ties and that the federal government does not believe they are associated. lou: the most recent reports are they are investigating very diligently that tragic incident. the obama administration says they cannot try in an american court because he is an american citizen with a king kill him with a missile fired from a drone despite that he is.
square that up. >> this really comes down to a political debate. republicans verses democrats and if you take it from a completely different perspective, the government says we can try him in a federal court and let him have his u.s. constitutional rights he is a citizen. the you we will be so good to prosecute and show the world exactly what our justice system can do. they wanted to win swift and harsh that is what they want to do. lou: i get back, but again how can this of ministration with a straight face say what they're doing is because he is an american have it on negative citizen but they just argue he could kill an american citizen with a drone firing a missile? >> you talk about the family
, , the victims, those people want to see this individual brought to justice to go through the system and me held accountable. lou: the reason there is great concern and rice so many elected officials are crying out for him to be tried as the enemy come back and is the degree of which allegedly he can be interrogated extensively without an attorney present and now this administration has chosen to foreclose that by making the decision it has. >> hold on. spee mickey can still be interrogated. lou: the terms, the duration and representation makes it different. >> it does. >> the truth is they already interrogated him. believes may. they invoked to terrorism laws when he was arrested. for least 48 hours before
miranda rights were given to him. lou: he was also under heavy sedation. i am not sure we can call that interrogation. >> we really don't know. if you recall there was not much said after he was arrested and nobody released information on his medical status at that particular point*. lou: we do know for a fact he had multiple gunshot wounds and was near bleeding out as the expression goes. he was in very bad shape. but now let's turn to chicago. we have a situation since a 1978, a chicago police arresting shimmy my nails, 390 times since 1978.
83 alias common 92 theft. 65 disorderly conduct. what in the world is going on? >> accommodation, i don't know but it's a combination of a failure in the government, a failure of the jail system and a mental health problem. when you combine all three of those issues together this is what happens. this is not your typical situation. this is so extraordinary. when you have the problems this woman had with the overcrowding in the illinois state prison system. >> get has to cost a fortune. >> and you see the revolving door day in and day out. there are great inefficiencies in the criminal justice system it cost taxpayers a ton of money but nobody figures out how to fix it. she keeps committing misdemeanor she goes in and comes out and not getting
the mental health treatment that she needs. lou: i can fix it in one minute. [laughter] paid the u.s. attorney's by the hour. >> come on the.

>> that is the fair assessment. he does not one day battle with his own group. lou: what about the 117 members? >> they can change the speaker at any time they want. [laughter] i think immigration will slow down. i think the gang of eight basically went by schumer who knew more than anybody and this is back in 1986 and knows the issues. you have to freshmen members i think there is a real battle coming so they should take their time learn what is in the bill. no more rushing through. we need to find the details. lou: just a few weeks ago rubio said slowdown. we have to be careful, focus to secure the border now full steam ahead?
>> your point* about hearings and unraveling and untangling the legislation. this is what our government doesn't do any more. like the public doesn't trust the government with the government doesn't trust the public. it takes on the big issues but then they don't unpacked the details because they are afraid of getting sidetracked. lou: teasing say care what the facts are? in all seriousness. illegal immigration they have no idea the number. they said there provide 11 million visa because they know they want 50 million. >> this is a hot-button issue for the republicans now ready talks about the latino voters if they cave they will lose their own constituency. and without border security he is spending money on border security making faa

well i have a lot of trouble, with the fact that view few people in national media pointing out this administration is suddenly using two terms they are loathe to do one is radical islamist terror, and other is terror itself. >> they are afraid to use it, as michael said before, it is admitting defeat, spending billions of dollars on intelligence, and security, many wonderful men and women doing wonder fall jobs, but this is not fail safe, if you have -- the russians wanted to investigate him 6 months ago they were worried about him, we should have put him on a list, why do we let him life. life. lou: to your point, there are miles of di distance between professional that make up our
