12:00 pm
show. this was a great show. very much fun for me to fill in for gretchen. john scott is in for shep. have a very happy and healthy and save labor day weekend. >> damage control at the white house. the obama administration now back-pedaling on the president's comment the u.s. has no strategy to deal with isis militants in syria. so, do we have a plan or not? >> the russians again dismissing accusations they have invaded ukraine. this time investigating the satellite photos of russian troops could be images from a video game. and a rare virus now tearing through one major american city and reportedly sending dozens of kids the hospital every day. what is it? and what can you do to keep your kid safe? i'm john scott in for shepard smith. it's not what the president said that is raising eye browse but
12:01 pm
the -- eyebrows but the way the media reported. josh earnest talking about president obama's comment that we don't have a strategy yet for taking on islamic state terrorist in syria. the press secretary said the president was referring to the strategy for air strikes in sirarch not the overall threat of the islamic state. the united states already has launched more than 100 airstrike s against targets in iraq, including the mosul dumb. but the president has not signed off on -- the press secretary made the rounds on news shows to clarify the president's remarks about strategy. president obama also cancelled an overnight stay in new york tonight. still, his spokesman played down any impression that the white house is doing damage control. he says the president's change of plans did not involve any
12:02 pm
islamic state threat. he said president obama wants time with his family and to, quote, sleep in his own bed. the press secretary even laughed off the controversy at the very top of today's briefing. >> at least one aspect of the president's news conference yesterday that attracted some attention and -- i thought i might go over one aspect of that argument. it's specifically this. the president stands squarely behind the decision he made yesterday to wear his summer suit at yesterday's news conference. >> that's a reference to the tan suit that dominated twitter discussions yesterday. the british government raised it terror threat level to indicate an attack is highly likely. much more on that a little later. as for president obama's strategy in syria, the press secretary said the president is waiting for the pentagon to draw up options. ed henry is live at the white
12:03 pm
house. is the administration showing any signs of taking action in syria? >> just the opposite. the broader point beyond what the president said or didn't say. he was trying to put a time-out, pause to all the discussion that maybe he was edging closer to military action in syria. i pressed josh earnest repeatedly why the president doesn't have a strategy for military action in syria. he put it on the pentagon, saying the plans are not ready, even though pentagon officials are saying, look, the u.s. military is always ready. the commander in chief give us a signal, we're ready to go. earnest was saying there's a broader reluctance here. caution by president obama about not being drawn into civil war in syria. listen. >> that's going to require a substantial commitment of american military forces and occupation of another country, and that is just not a strategy the president believ succeeds. certainly didn't succeed in iraq
12:04 pm
last time around and the president doesn't believe that it's a recipe for success this time either. >> they're making a distinction saying the president does have a military strategy in iraq, in fact airstrikes continue there today around the mosul dam. bringing the total to 110 u.s. airstrikes since august. the pentagon revealing to us today, that's costing taxpayers $7.5 million a day. >> the president did cansel discovery night stay in -- cancel the overnight stay in new york bit doing some fun raising. >> yes, in manhattan and rhode island. josh earnest said, as commander in chief he juggles a lot of different responsibilities including being the head of the democratic party, and he said he is confident his national security team is dealing with the issues while he is traveling. paul ryan says this shows a commander in chief understatementing the threat from isis. >> we need to have a strategy to
12:05 pm
finish them off to defeat isis, not to contain them or secure the mosul dam or protect the gentleman did can is but fin -- yazidis, but the president doesn't see this moment for what it is, for him, and for us as a country. >> you mentioned in the short term the uk prime minister staying he has raised the terror threat level there because of this threat from isis. josh earnest saying the president, homeland security department, has looked at this and as of right now they're not raising the terror threat level here in the u.s. >> ed henry at the white house. very h thank -- thank you very . let's talk about this with chris wallace. interesting comparing the two leaders, chris. the president's news conference yesterday, which he said we don't have a strategy, and then hearing david cameron come out today, raise the threat level in britain to the second highest level, and say, we're going to be ready.
12:06 pm
we're talking about revoking passports. why the difference? >> well, seems to be a difference in style. a week or so ago david cameron cut off his vacation, his summer vacation, to return to ten downing street. the british white house to start dealing with the isis threat while president obama continued on his vacation in martha's vineyard. and this may not make a difference if the president comes up with a solid strategy to deal with isis, burt the fact is the -- but the fact is the mood music counts and you have one leader, the british prime minister, who seems resolute, determined, pro-active, and another one, who is going off to a wedding this afternoon in west chester and fundraising tomorrow in rhode island and doesn't have a strategy yet. we could have said we're still sorting out or strategy. he could have said we're going to be meeting, as he is, with
12:07 pm
the leaders of the nato countries at a summit in great britain next week, saying we want to get international buy-in, but to say we don't have a strategy yesterday sounds hapless. >> the overall feeling that one gets -- i think this is fair -- this is the president who came into office promising to get us out of iraq, he did so, and now just does not want to pull the trigger on more significant military operations than those that have been underway the very limited air strikes for the last three weeks. >> well, let wait and see what he does. i think it's certainly fair to say this. you're exactly right. also the president who campaigned for, ran, and was elected to get us out of conflict us, who has tried it himself. and whenever he talks about the use of force, and some would argue this is too cautious or too self-limiting, others say it's just being careful. that he always wants to put limits on it. always wants to get
12:08 pm
international buy-in. he always wants to set limit is on what we're going to strike and not going to strike. and seems often defined by what we're not going to do as much as we are going to do. that just is his style. we have seen it back in 2009 when he announced the surge in afghanistan at west point and then announced he quickly he was going to pull the troops out. >> did it seem that david cameron's announcement today was motivated by the president's sort of soft position yesterday in. >> i doubt that. but i don't think he is trying to stick it to the president, since they're meeting next week. it shows to different leaders with two different ways of responding to a terror threat. one cuts off his vacation and takes action and the other continues on vacation and says we don't have a strategy yet. >> much to talk about this weekend. thank you. >> you bet. >> chris will have more on the islamic state and syria on fox
12:09 pm
news sunday. he'll be speaking with mike rodgers, this sunday, on your local fox station. check your tv listings. >> first a rebel commander said russian troops were in ukraine to take a vacation. now a claim from the kremlin that might be more bizarre. could satellite troops of russians rolling through ukraine actually be from a video game? that's next. nobody ever stomped their foot and asked for less. there's a reason it's called an "all you can eat" buffet... and not a "have just a little" buffet. because what we all really want is more. that's why verizon is giving you even more. now, for a limited time, get more data! 1 gb of bonus data every month with every new smartphone or upgrade.

vacations and now video games. but definitely not an invasion. that's what the russians are saying about what they're up to in ukraine. yesterday we told you a top rebel commander said russian troops in eastern earthquake were heading to -- eastern ukraine were heading to the beach for vacation. now russia's foreign minister says satellite images supposedly showing troop movement and russian artillery are pictures from video game. putin is calling on the rebels to release some ukrainian forces, he may be referring to troops trapped outside of

satellite images released by nato yesterday, purportedly show russian forces forces and artiln ukraine. >> translator: there have been report thursday photographs from space showing moms of russian troops bus it was computer games and the images were taken from there. and the latest allegations are more or less of the same kind. >> meanwhile, another town on route to the ukrainian port has fallen to russian forces and their surrogates, putting putin one step closer to having a land quarter from russia to crimea. >> what does putin have to say about this? >> he is denying that russian troops are inside ukraine. while addressing a group of russian youth at a kremlin-backed summer camp. he delivered a warning to the west, quote, it's best not to mess with us, as he went on to remind the world that russia is, quote, one of the leading nuclear powers. a veiled threat to nato and
12:15 pm
blamed the ukraine government for the crisis. >> it is very sad and reminds me of the events of world war ii, when nazi german occupiers, fascist german troops raged on our cities. >> an indication the war has reached a turning point, forcing putin to prepare the russian people for further sacrifice as sanctions bite. one thing for sure putin is not giving up. >> the pilot of an f-15 fighter jet died when it crashed into the mountains of rural virginia, according to military officials today. the crash happened wednesday 13 other miles north and west of richmond. a rye moat and heavily wooded hear. rescuers found evidence the pilot did not eject from the jet. those officials have not released the pilot0s name and say the investigation into the

12:35 pm
putin certainly thinks there is. he has sent his artillery pieces and apparently at least a thousand of his soldiers into ukraine. what should the u.s. response be? >> well, what president putin is doing is violating the sovereignty of ukraine. taking steps over the course of the last several months that are illegal, aggressive, unacceptable in the international community. that's why we have all put in place the united states, many european countries, range of very strong sanctions we're seeing a strong impact in russia, on the russian economy, but there is a military solution in the sense, and what we mean by that is there's never going to be pint, anytime so where the ukrainian army will be able to defeat the russian army. we can't work toward the point where we are having them fight it out on a battlefield. we want to see putting pressure on russia so they're willing to engage in a diplomatic path forward. >> one other issue. secretary of state kerry just

12:45 pm
players if warranted, quote, as we do in all disciplinary matters with me believe the players' due process rights are infringed upon during the course of discipline. we'll assert and defend our members' rights. the players association has often been at odds with the league over suspensions, new rules, you name it. joining us know is a pro football writer. what is the uproar that caused the change of heart of roger goodell and the nfl. >> you have to point to that first and foremost. roger goodell saw the rising tenor of fans who were up and set, specially female fans and female reporters. in addition they saul the money going out the door. the nfl in recent areas has trade to cater to women, making the breast cancer awareness month an all-out event with pink gear for all the players and i think they're recognizing now
12:46 pm
how big the women's voice is in their game. >> what about ray rice? is this retroactive? >> the indication is that his indication is over and done with. and i'm sure that the nfl pa would fight against any retroactive decision against him. but there has been no official word yet on that. >> does it surprise you that roger goodell was this lenient, guess in the early going? he has made good behavior sort of the hallmark of his term at the helm of the nfl and really trade to push the prayers and -- players and instill in them the knowledge playing for the nfl is a privilege and they bert live up to -- better live up their responsibilities. >> it was a surprise to a lot of people but if you follow the nfl closely, in off the field, the suspensions have not been ramped up all that much. the drug suspensions typically two, four games, occasionally a
12:47 pm
full season, was a saw nor joshgoers, something that was carryover from the previous commissioner. the punishments we have seen increase have been on-field behavior. the hits to the head, hitting too low. those are things that have been met with harsher and harsher penalties throughout goodell gos reign, but for offfield stuff it was on par if earlier decisions but not on par with the public's einvolving view -- evolving view on domestic violence. >> because the penalties are so severe there will be an effort on the part of players of spouses to height this stuff when its actually -- to hide this stuff when it does happen. >> that could be one unintend consequence. another one could be that nfl players, when they are could you goed of these crimes, will be taking their cases to trial because if you go to trial some are acquitted, then the nfl can't punish you. but if you take a plea deal like most of these cases have been
12:48 pm
resolved, just because the player wants to get back on the field, you're stuck to the first suspension, six games, and then the second one can be an indefinite ban for one year. i think you will see more players taking the cases to trial, and i think you'll see less instances. whether that's because players are doing more to cover them up or players are making better decisions remains to be seen. >> unfortunate we have to worry about domestic violence in conjunction with professional sports. thanks. >> thank you. tony stewart, the nascar champ, says he is set to race again this weekend in atlanta for the first time since he struck and killed driver, kevin ward, "j." stewart hit ward at a sprint car escent. there's ward running on the track, gesturing at stewart. witnesses say he was angry after stewart's car clipped his,
