so many thousands. prosecutors say he was by bin laden's side the day after the attacks, calling for the killing of more christians, jews, and americans u.s. officials say he spent some time in iran. tonight, we're learning more about how he ended up here in the u.s. some republicans are calling the whole thing sneaky. they said he should be at guantanamo bay. the white house says the feds have convicted a lot more terrorist suspects in federal court than at gitmo. this is how they want it. we have team fox coverage now. jonathan hunt is with us tonight with more on the capture and the suspect. first david lee miller on fox top story live at the courthouse in downtown manhattan. what else happened at that hearing today, david lee? >> well, let's start with the latest information, shepard. at this hour there are some conflicting reports that the defendant here has been cooperating with authorities. during the hearing itself today, the prosecutor told the court that he was taken to the united states exactly one week ago this
after being into custody. as for the hearing itself. security as you mentioned extremely tight. as he entered the courtroom his hands were cuffed behind him. he asked during the hearing to be addressed as mr. siewl mone. he was bearded wearing prison clothing. he spoke through a translator. his attorney did not ask for bail. something that he probably would not have been granted. and at this hour, he is in a federal detention facility. his next court appearance scheduled for april 8th. shepard? >> shepard: do we know what kind of evidence the government has against him, david lee? >> the government gave a few hints about the case that they are going to present. the prosecutors said that they did obtain 22-page post arrest statement, not clear though is what he may have said in that statement. they also mention the use of audio and video recordings. remember are, one day after the 9/11 attacks, the defendant said, and i quote: the storm shall not stop, especially the
airplane storm. words like this might be used against him at trial. and the prosecution also suggested that there is the possibility, at least, that classified information may be introduced at trial as evidence. whatever the case, shepard, the prosecution said that they expect their case is going to take about three weeks in the courtroom. the big question on the minds of many, what are we going to learn about al qaeda at this trial that we don't already know? shepard? >> shepard: david lee, we are learning much more about this guy's movement over the last decade or so when osama's son-in-law has been and how the feds ultimately caught up with him. team fox coverage continues. jonathan hunt is in our newsroom. lay it out for us. where has he been? what do we know? >> shep, he was born in kuwait. he traveled to afghanistan in 2000, according to officials. he was alongside usama bin laden as you can see in this photograph right here. there he is on the left in the days prior to 9/11 and immediately after. in 2002 though, he was
smuggled from afghanistan to iran and was there for almost a decade. now, it's unclear whether he was actually harbored by the iranians or whether he was under some sort of house arrest there. either way, u.s. agents never gave up. accordin to former cia operative mike baker, this is a big get. listen. some game. they are going to get they have to understand because neither are we that we're not going to stop put them away as we deserve. >> 11 and a half years' work by the cia and fbi paid off in the end, shep. >> shepard: how in the end did the u.s. get ahold of him? >> this is fascinating. we first reported this by a source on "studio b" today. now have it confirmed by
multiple u.s. officials. this is how it all went down. for some reason, last month, abu gates decided to travel from iran to turkey. the turks arrested him in anchorrer. they did not want to deport him back to the u.s. a stop over in amman jordan. that's where u.s. officials with the obvious help of jordanians arrested abu gates. it's worth pointing out here there is no logical or logistical meaning avoid syrian airspace to fly an carla to kuwait by jordan. it may well be that the turks didn't want the domestic consumption reasons to be seen to be handing him over to the u.s. they knew all along that u.s. officials would grab him in jordan.
no confirmation of that. but it's a clear possibility, shep. >> shepard: jonathan, thanks. as i mentioned, some republics say that this guy aby gates should be at guantanamo bay, not in a civilian courtroom here at home. the white house says the government has what it calls a pretty strong track record of convincing or convicting terrorist suspects in federal court. we'll have more on that debate coming up in just a few minutes inside fox report. first, wall street though. what a run. the dow marking its sixth straight day of gains after we got some really terrific news on employment today. the labor department is now reporting the unemployment rate dropped unexpectedly 7.9 to 7.7% as employers added jobs. much better than economists predicted. you will be able to see how the rates have progressed since the date of the great recession. job growth showing employers are more confident these days. you know wall street liked today's news. the dow hit another record high going up 68 today. look at that 14397.
that index has more than doubled since it bottomed out exactly four years ago tomorrow. the fox business network gerri willis is is live in our studios at the fox business network. what are the analysts saying? everybody has got to be fired up about this. >> they are fired up. businesses out there are starting to think that payroll tax hike isn't such a bad thing. and maybe federal spending increasing isn't as bad as well. there is one dark side to this, here it is what it is. there are 130,000 people who are not looking for work right now. the government numbers don't count those in the unemployed people. so you have got to think about that. that's important how many people stopped looking for work. shep? >> shepard: and the fed pumping all this money in too. you have got to think of that, too. >> absolutely the federal reserve is playing a big role in what is going on not just with jobs but also the stock market. they meet next march 19th. can you bet that there is going to be it no change in what they're doing. the magic number where the fed might start to say hey maybe we better move those interest rates up 6.5% in unemployment. we are not even close to
that yet, shep? >> shepard: a lot of good news. gerri willis from the biz. thank you. >> thank you. >> shepard: you know you can't bring your shampoo on to the plane. water bottle? forget about it a fake bomb is no problem at all. the airport screeners who flunked the key safety check. we'll show you where. plus, getting sick at sea. the cruise ship that returned to port after illness hit more than 100 passengers. that's all ahead from the journalists of fox news on this friday fox report.

>> is we just learned that the tsa has now decided to let us start bringing knives on to airplanes. and now we have learned one passenger got through security with a fake bomb. the passenger was actually an undercover agent conducting a test, which the screeners apparently failed. that's according to the "new york post" which this network's parent company owns. sources tell the paper the
undercover agent got through two security screenings including one that involved the patdown. trace gallagher with the news life for us tonight. how did this go down? >> you know tsa has what it calls a red team. they are four ground cover agents that pose as passengers. this case two had impro-mizeed explosive devices. one was inside a child's doll. there were wires sticking out it was quickly detected. another was underwear bomb that got through the imagine no, ma'am ter as well magnetometer. tsa says and i'm quoting here due to the it security sensitive nature of the test, t.s.a. does not publicly share details about how they are conducted. what specifically is tested or -- are the outcomes. a former tsa official says this is the way agents get better. listen. >> that's what they are doing these tests for how do we improve the screener training that our screeners go through each and every
year. how do we continually raise the bar to make sure that they are at the sort of cutting edge of detection. really the only way to do that is to really do it through these red team tests and have them push the envelope and determine what's feasible and what's not feasible by the way by allowing knives golf clubs, tsa says they are allowing the agents to look for more dangerous devices, shep. >> shepard: and the shampoo. how often do we fail these tests, do you know? >> there were some years after 9/11 that at newark the red team we talked about was getting one out of four bombs through security, and clearly getting much better these days. but they won't tell us how much better because t.s.a. doesn't talk about these matters. but last year, clearly still problems, 52 agents were fired because of security lapses. remember the romeo case where an unticketed passenger a couple of years ago walked right past security to kiss his girlfriend goodbye. now, the reason newark gets a lot of focus is because
it was a starting point for the 9/11 hijackers. shep? >> shepard: trace gallagher live tonight. thank you. well, a bird strike forced a spirit airline planes to make an emergency landing with more than 100 people on board. afterwards, crews had to haul out giant sprayers to wash the thing down, look at this. the dallas bound plane took off from fort lauderdale, hollywood in florida when a bird smacked into it and it returned to that airport. no reports of anybody hurt. certainly less dramatic than the miracle on the hudson. everything is then a u.s. airways flight struck a bird or a few of them in 2009. the pilot sully sullenberger safely land the plane in the hudson river. also a cruise ship arrived with big trouble of its own. royal caribbean's vision of the seas ship. reached port today after a caribbean voyage that saw more than 100 passengers come down with a rough stomach virus which folks have called the winter vomiting bug. the company officials said that plenty of

suspects in federal courts since the attacks. it's the top story at the bottom of the hour and doug mckelway is on it live from d.c. what, a couple of years ago they tried khalid sheikh mohammed down there. the whole place went nuts. are they expecting anything like that? >> hard to say, shep, what the outcome of this one will be. but it certainly has reignited intense criticism of the administration for trying terrorist suspects in civilian courts where miranda rights apply. >> it's this man right next to usama bin laden, involved in the attacks on our country on 9/11. don't you think it would be important that we not tell him he has the right to remain silent? >> senator ayacht along with senators mccain red a statement quote: the white house today defended its record of
terrorist convictions in federal courts. pointing to the times square bomber and underwear bomber now serving life sentences. >> there is broad consensus across the united states government at the department of defense, the department of justice, the department of homeland security, intelligence community agrees that the best way to protect our national security interests is to prosecute abu ghayts in article 3 court. >> since 2001, 67 foreign terrorists have been convicted in u.s. federal courts, shep. >> shepard: only 5 at guantanamo bay. under the letter of the rules here, does he even qualify for a trial at gitmo? >> you know, this is really interesting. we spoke to heritage legal scholar jag officer. listen to what he says about the charges against abughayt. >> for the lindsey grahams of the world who say gitmo, gitmo gitmo all the time fine, that's a policy choice. for the same people who say military commissions, military commissions,

' today on "studio b" senator john mccain said it was ludicrous for senator paul to even ask the question. >> no one is is going to be struck by a hell fire missile from a drone that is not in enemy combatant. i mean, that's just a fact.
by the way the reason why we use hell fire missiles overseas and places like yemen is because we don't have the ability to capture them. we want to capture these people not kill them. >> it's an important question. it's sad that it came to this that we had to use pressure to get him to admit this. it's still a big victory for the people who said you know what? in america you do get a trial. senator paul says that senator mccain and lindsey graham on south carolina are on the wrong side of history. chuck hagel touched down in afghanistan for the first time since becomes pentagon chief. flew into kabul unannounced. he wanted to meet with commanders on the ground to better understand what's going on there. there are plenty of challenges ahead as nato hands over security to the afghans. he warned that america is still at war. focused on the mission. the date has been set and the catholic church could have a new pope as early as next tuesday. the vatican announced today

god before whom they all believe that they will be judged one day. now, if after three days, there is no white smoke, they take a day off for a bit more prayer, some spiritual exhortation by a senior cardinal of the order of the deacons, shep, and then it goes on. but the hope is this will be a fast process that's what they said they would like to see but we'll know very soon, shep. >> shepard: yes, we will. a lot of preparations going on there amy, i'm sure. >> well, they are already talking, shep, about some problems with telephones in the vatican because the antijamming has begun. they use very sophisticated technology. the same technology used by italian soldiers in afghanistan to protect armored vehicles against attack. a lot of electronic screens. all of this so that nobody can eavesdrop on the cardinals inside the chapel. they won't be frisked but all people who are not part of the club of cardinals will be going through metal dedoctors. there are a few extra
