tv   On the Record With Greta Van Susteren  FOX News  October 7, 2014 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT

4:00 pm
much fnc is a family in a lot of ways. people in front of the camera and behind the camera have been here. thank you for inviting us into your home. this is the fox news alert. do you know who this is? look closely. right now, the u.s. government is pleading for your help. the fbi asking for the public's help to identify this masked man in an isis propaganda individual kbr video released last month online. the fbi is asking for your help to identify isis fighters. meanwhile, grave fear tonight that a syrian town is about to fall to isis. our reporter joins us live from the border. what is going on at the border? >> okay. the latest that i can tell you from the border is the following.
4:01 pm
today there was less shooting inside the city. the clashes were less intense than yesterday. and the only reason that this is happening is because coalition planes are flying over kobani since 4:00 a.m. in the morning. i, myself, am standing around 500 meters away from the border. i could see kobani right in front of me and i was able to spot five coalition air strikes. these air strikes are massive, you know, plumes of smoke mainly on the eastern side of the city on the eastern side of the city and on the southern/western side of the city. and the situation inside means these coalition air strikes were able, according to people inside kobani, were able to stop the advance of isis, you know. so the isis fighters have stuck now at a certain point and they are not going forward anymore. i was just speaking to a source
4:02 pm
inside kobani and he told me that the moment these isis fighters hear coalition planes, even if they only hear the planes, they don't have to bomb, they go into hiding and basically they will not be able to move anymore. >> are there isis flags or kurdish flags or what kind of flags? >> reporter: these are the coalition planes. >> no. flags. whose got control of the flags? >> reporter: if we speak about the eastern side, i can see two eastern flags flying on the eastern side of kobani. you have one flag standing on a sandy hill. and yesterday i was even able to see five isis fighters on that hill just hanging out there, just sitting there, you know. and there is another flag also in that part of town. the center of town is still under the hands of kurdish forces and through my binoculars
4:03 pm
i was able to see a flag of the kurdish sources there and i'm curious, is the turkish fighters at the syrian side of the border? >> reporter: they have tanks there and a lot of riot police, almost every day riots between the turkish police and those standing on the turkish side of the border but the turkish tanks are standing with their banks to kobani and their face towards turkey. they are not pointing at syria. >> jenan, thank you for joining us. the syrian border town could fall to isis. does the u.s. need to do more? representative duncan hunter joins us. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> isis is at least running from the air strikes but i certainly see that isis has the flag up. it seems that isis is expanding.
4:04 pm
are we doing enough with the air strikes? >> yeah, we are. but you have to look at this in the sense of what are we protecting ourselves from. if you want to protect americans from isis, you secure them from the southern border. they don't have a navy, air force, nuclear weapons. the only way that isis is going to harm americans is by coming in through the southern border, which they already have. >> are you talking about our -- the southern border of -- >> the u.s. southern border is the only way that americans get harmed by isis. that's it. that's the only way that they can touch us here. if you're talking about getting rid of evil and smashing them over there, what were doing would be enough if our nato ally of turkey would actually do something about this instead of helping isis. like she said, the turkish tanks are facing away from the enemy. turkey is helping isis get rid
4:05 pm
of their long-standing enemy kurdistan. when they give them weapons, ammunition and food and supplies, turkey is helping isis. it's going to be really hard for the kurds to stand if two things don't happen. turkey doesn't act like the ally that it is supposed to be, number one, and number two, we should be giving massive heavy weapons to those kurds that are fighting to the peshmerga so they can take down isis themselves. i have they just need the weaponry and baghdad is keeping that out of kurdish hands. if they have the heavy weaponry, if you're talking about americans, isis is coming across the southern border. >> hold on. stop for one second. >> they are going to be bombing american cities coming across from mexico. >> let me ask a question. you say that they are coming in the southern border, which is --
4:06 pm
changes all the dine ma'ynamics. do you have any information that they are coming in through the southern border now? >> yes. >> tell me what you know. >> at least ten isis fighters have been caught coming across the border in texas. >> how do you know that? >> because i've asked the border patrol, greta. >> and the border patrol just let's isis members come across the border? >> no. they caught them at the border. therefore, we know that isis is coming across the border. if they catch five or ten of them, you know that there are going to be dozens more that did not get caught by the border patrol. that's how you know. that's where we are at risk here, is from isis and radical islamists coming across the border. once again, they don't have a navy, air force, nuclear weapons. the only way that americans are going to be harmed by radical islam -- chairman dempsey said the same thing. he said that's where the major threat is here, that's how these
4:07 pm
g guys are going to infiltrate through america and harm americans. >> congressman, thank you. >> thank you. now to terror raids in london. police arresting four men. amy kellogg is live. amy? >> reporter: greta, the metropolitan police commissio r commissioner, the head of scotland yard, has not said directly that this has a link to isis but he's hinted strongly that that's the case. he said that, quote, the drumbeat around terrorism has become more intense in the last few weeks and there is a strong link to iraq and syria and this case could fit into that category. so not many details but definitely we're understanding that this is somewhat different from what we've seen before. meanwhile, the terror arrests in london have increased five-fold in the last year alone. just recently we saw cleric arrested with eight other men. he's been released on bail since
4:08 pm
they be. that had more to do with individuals being part of organizations or spreading terrorist propaganda. we know that 500 british men are thought to have traveled to syria and fight with isis and some of them have come back and reportedly half of those who traveled to syria were not even known as terrorists to the government before. in other words, they were not on intelligence's radar screen. prime minister cameron is fighting isis on two fronts. he's trying to keep young brits from going over to iraq and syria to fight and has vowed to take away passports from anyone who has such a plan and he's also trying to stop homegrown extremists. if the conservative party returns to power next year, she wants the next parliament to pass legislation to gag known extremists. of course, scotland yards,
4:09 pm
particularly cyber unit has shut down 45,000 extremists. >> amy, thank you. and in iraq, isis is using a new weapon. water. isis is viciously cutting off water to villages that dare to resist isis rule. that's not all. isis is trying to expand its control over iraq's dams. joining me is john. nice to see you, sir. >> good evening, greta. >> good evening, sir. so how does isis use water as a weapon? how, specifically? >> well, specifically, iraq is very dependent upon the nearly 100% on the flows of the flow of the river for their irrigation supplies, water, industrial uses and also power, both hydroelectric and power
4:10 pm
generation. while isis doesn't control the dams, they have ample opportunity to create problems for iraq as a country and especially for the localities where they are diverted the flow of water. >> the mosul dam was what we were worried about isil taking control and now that has gone back to the iraqis. but is there something -- these two rivers, the euphrates flow through iraq. is thering in that they can do to that water to poison it downstream to baghdad and other areas? >> there's many diversion points along the tigris before it gets to baghdad. one in particular at samara, they have the opportunity to divert much of the flow into a major canal and ultimately into a large lake or depression called tartar where water could
4:11 pm
be stored. their storage capacity, they could divert the flow of the tigris for literally months at a time. so there's very real threats to iraq's water supply. >> you know, it's so painful to think that anybody could be that cruel, especially in a country where in iraq it's not had quite the amount of rainfall and it's so incredible that they would do anything to threaten these villages what dare to resist them and threaten their water supply. it's astounding, isn't it? >> well, it is astounding when you think about it but when you think of the atrocities that isis has already committed against individuals across iraq, i guess it isn't so surprising. but they have certainly, you know, already shown that they will divert water in attempts to cut off water to surgeon areas in iraq and also flood agricultural areas in and around
4:12 pm
baghdad. >> john, thank you for joining us. >> you're very welcome. >> and vice president joe biden's apology tour continues. next stop, saudi arabia. he's apologized to turkey and the united arab emirates. this comes after he said that the mid-east allies are partly to blame for isis. >> what were they doing? they were so determined to take on assad and essentially have a proxy sunni/shia war. what did they do? they poured hundreds of millions of dollars in tens and thousands of weapons into anyone who would fight against assad except that the people who would be supplied were al nusra and al qaeda and
4:13 pm
the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world. >> and late today, the vice president apologizing to saudi arabia's foreign minister. he is joining us. good evening. >> good evening. >> first of all, as the vice president apologized to the saudi arabians, was he wrong? and also supplying tens of weapons? >> well, part of what he says is correct. i think that the saudis and others made a mistake in thinking that they could arm the opposition forces in syria and keep them under control and obviously that notion has failed, as we can see from the successes that isis has had. and i think that the vice president's guilty of the ultimate washington gaffe, which is telling the truth in part, and that's why he's had to apologize. i think the real problem here is the disarray that this shows at the top of the administration, a
4:14 pm
president who's detached, off doing fundraising, a vice president who can't keep to the script, a former secretary of defense for the administration deeply critical of the administration. i think our friends and allies have to be scratching their heads saying, who's in charge here? >> let me ask you about another apology he made to turkey, that essentially turkey was allowing jihadis to cross the border and no sooner did he say that people were up in arms and then apologized to turkey. was that an incorrect statement that turkey is basically looking the other way and allowing ji d jihadists to cross into syria? >> no. there i think the vice president was correct. he characterized a conversation with president erdogan saying that we made a mistake allowing these radicals to come through and erdogan said that and i
4:15 pm
would never say anything critical of the president of turkey but vice president biden was probably accurate about the characterization of the conversation. >> so why the apology? i mean, if vice president biden was correct about saudi arabia and about turkey, stated the truth, as you say, a washington gaffe to tell the truth, why apologize? what's the reason? >> because it was a foolish thing to do in the circumstances. as bad as turkey's conduct has been and as bad as saudi arabia's conduct has been, if we have any hope of carrying out the president's stated objective of destroying isis, we need them in the fight. and what this shows is that it goes to the point about disarray in the administration. what you say publicly true or not true about an ally ought to be part of an overall strategy. and biden, i think, was guilty of acting again, as he often
4:16 pm
does like a senator instead of like vice president of the united states. so this confusion, this lack of strategy, i think it gives the people who ought to be our friends grave discomfort. >> let's step back for a second and think about it. calling our allies out on things when they do wrong. frankly, if i look back at history, many would say that people called ronald reagan out. at some point, isn't it sometimes effective to take on our allies that are making blunders? letting jihadists into syria to fight the fight with isis, it's not as destructive of fighting isis. >> whether you criticize an ally publicly, in private, whatever you do ought to be part of a strategy. there's nothing wrong to speaking privately or publicly but you ought to think through why you are doing it and what the implications are and whether it achieves your overall objectives and i think here we have a case for biden, for whatever reason and i'm no
4:17 pm
shrink, but for whatever reason just sort of wandering around describing the conduct of our allies, it's not helpful. >> if our objective is to get turkey to step it up and block that border, that's our objective. how do you achieve that? >> well, i think that goes to the question whether it makes sense to pummel erdogan in public. i'm certainly no admirer of his. i think he's taking turkey in the direction that is contrast to the united states. but do we get biden criticizing the turks in public or twist their arm in private? >> i guess i am making the assumption that we tried the arm twisting in private. i assume we already tried that one. >> well, maybe we did and maybe this is part of a strategy and maybe it's part of a grand design that the president has cooked up between fund-raisers. but honestly, i have to say, it sounds like joe biden for
4:18 pm
getting he's vice president and thinking he's back in the senate. >> if we haven't been trying behind the scenes, we have bigger problems than we might have realized. ambassador, thank you. straight ahead, the desperate fight against another enemy, ebola. two american hospitals desperately are trying to treat very sick ebola patients. plus, texas governor rick perry goes on the record. ebola has hit his state. that's next. and then leon panetta, a fellow democrat, slamming president only saying the president's red line statement put our nation's credibility on the line. that's coming up. each ally bank, but there are no branches? 24/7 it's just i'm a little reluctant to try new things. what's wrong with trying new things? feel that in your muscles? yeah... i do... try a new way to bank, where no branches equals great rates.

4:21 pm
4:22 pm
it's getting ready to ramp up measures to fight ebola in the united states. cdc director tom frieden says specific plans will be announced in the coming days. he says they are trying to determine what more, if anything, can be done to beef up the airport screening process. and right now the american cameraman hospitalized in nebraska and a liberian patient in dallas getting treatment for ebola. >> reporter: thomas duncan remains in critical condition and is receiving the experimental ebola drug. some family members showed up from north carolina. his mother and nephew were able to see him and appreciate the care he's receiving but they are still upset about the initial incident in which duncan was
4:23 pm
tu turned away from this hospital. cdc director tom frieden saying globally this is going to be a long, hard fight but health officials know how to stop ebola and hinted at beefing up screening at airports to help protect against an ebola outbreak which is the focus here on the ground in dallas where, on the record, it's been investigating the four quarantine family members. i spoke with a gentleman who visited with them in person yesterday. his name is george mason, the senior baptist of wilshire baptist church. >> i've been in phone contact with her pretty much every day since i learned about this connection and ourhas been very in various ways, certainly through prayer, holding her up in that way, writing notes that i was finally yesterday able to deliver to her because i did get to go and see her and three boys who were in quarantine
4:24 pm
yesterday. >> tell me about that. how was she? how were you able to be in contact with her and what did she say? >> well, i was not in direct contact. i did keep direct distance. even though i don't think that's really necessary, but just as an excess of caution, we didn't touch. we simply sat together and she and the three boys that are there with her, one of them being her 13-year-old son, another nephew and a friend. they are holding up okay. they are relying on their faith and that was very evident in our time of prayer together and quoting the 23rd psalm and she said that she's managing okay, she's grateful to this country and to the officials in dallas. she really feels like they have been very kind to her and she wants to give glory to god that she's finding the strength to be able to manage through all of
4:25 pm
this. >> pastor mason asked for prayers, obviously, and said that a son, 19 years old, thomas eric duncan will be here tomorrow. all eyes remain on thomas eric duncan. greta? >> the first case of ebola was diagnosed in the u.s. in dallas and that patient came into contact with dozens of other people. people worry, can the disease be stopped and stop the spread to other states? governor perry is here next. ? [thinking] i'm still working. he's retired. i hope he's saving. i hope he saved enough. who matters most to you says the most about you. at massmutual we're owned by our policyowners, and they matter most to us. whether you're just starting your 401(k) or you are ready for retirement, we'll help you get there.
4:26 pm

4:28 pm
4:29 pm
fears of ebola growing across the u.s. but especially in texas and that's for good reason. a liberian patient is fighting for his life. he came in contact with possibly dozens of other people. today the cdc saying it is tracking all of the six liberians the man contacted. meanwhile, governor perry announcing a special task force. good evening, sir. >> greta, how are you? >> i'm doing well, better than the man in dallas, i can tell you that. he's in your state. what does the formation of this special group going to do? >> well, i think it's important to not only get a handle on this but to disseminate information as the best we can to the public and to have people who are truly experts at this. a doctor, one of the premier
4:30 pm
scientists and researchers, head of texas a&m hospital, accelerated research project agency. this is a man who probably knows as much about bio security as anyone in the country along with the galveston national laboratory head, dr. la duke. i mean, extraordinary epidemiologist and scientist who has been given the authority to work with the other state agencies and the county and with the city of dallas at the same time. so not only is this staying on top of this issue but doing everything we can to manage it and manage it in a way that the people of the state of texas are confident that everything is being done, the people are being monitored, the process is being put into place. so the citizens of this state are safe and secure. >> how do we avoid the problem where everyone steps all over each other and trying to protect.
4:31 pm
there's been some suggestion, two republicans felt we should have a national ebola czar which i'm not in favor of. we have the cdc, your panel and i understand why you have your panel in your state but how do we avoid the problem of not having he everyone run into each other and it would be less effective? >> well, actually, the last two administrations had an individual who was in charge of biosecurity. i think it was a special assistant to the president for biosecurity. president only let that lapse. i think that was an error. i think it's important that there's one person at the white house, day in and day out overseeing the issue of the bio security. that's why i asked for the same thing in the state of texas. so every major event that we've had in the state, whether it's a hurricane, a space shuttle falling out of the sky,
4:32 pm
something that you would look at as black swans, you learn something new in every one of those, greta. >> but listen, i remember secretary of hhs, tommy thompson on our show during the anthrax scare, for instance, and he was the hhs secretary. i'm worried that in our incredible zeal to solve this problem, that we don't create bigger problems for ourselves. isn't that the hhs job? >> well, i think when the president of the united states stands up and says this is the individual who is going to be the point of contact out of the white house to manage these myriad of agencies that are out there, and there are a lot of agencies that have responsibility. i think it is important for the leader to stand up and say, this is the individual that is going to be in charge on this particular issue, this is the go-to person. >> last week there was a press
4:33 pm
conference and he wasn't at the press conference but he was doing an economic speech in indiana. but they had a press conference on ebola. i actually thought he should have been there and that would have been a good time to point at someone and say, you're the one in charge. >> well, from a standpoint of texas, the doctor is that person. we stood up together and the people of the state of texas are comfortable. listen, you're going to learn something new every time. there are going to be mistakes that are made. when someone says, this is the individual in charge, this is the person that i have full confidence in can manage all of the disparate agents out there, it would be wise to look at a special assistant to the president for biosecurity.
4:34 pm
>> do you have any updates on the liberian man in your hospital? i know he's in critical condition but is he less critical than yesterday or more critical than yesterday? >> greta, i don't know. dr. lakey, the head of our department of health services, he's there on the ground and monitoring that but i have no new information. >> governor, nice to see you. thank you. >> thank you, greta. wait until you hear who president only says hates the press. it's not your usual suspect. start guessing. plus, i have a big announcement to make. well, you don't want to miss it. stay tuned. your customers, our financing.

a pulitzer prize winner says president only hates the press. >> i don't think any of this would be happening under the only administration if only didn't want to do it. i believe barack obama hates the press. i don't think he likes the press and i think he doesn't like leaks. >> joining us from "the wall street journal" and tim from courts. bill, first to you. all presidents hate the press. president only hates fox. and james says the president hates the press more than he hates fox. >> i've never met a politician that hates the press. if they do, it only takes one article that changes all of that. i think this drives from the
4:40 pm
fact that politicians don't need the press as much as they needed to 20 years ago. and i think that's reflected in the pact that politicians communicate directly with people. >> and he's done some politician shows. >> exactly. that means that when there is a chance to try and crack down, i don't think he really cares about the leaker. if he needs to squeeze the press, he will do that. >> they loved him so much. now they don't love him so much. he certainly didn't hate the press in the beginning. >> no, he didn't and why would he? they were all for him and pro t promoting for him pretty much daily. he has gone after likeeakers to degree that we've never seen in the past. what he hates is negative press.
4:41 pm
when you see him sitting down with a journalist and enjoying with "60 minutes" or tom friedman, that's what he enjoys. >> but i actually thought it was a great interview. he didn't hit him over the head or yell or scream at him. but he got information out from him. >> absolutely. i think bill is right that only is trying to go around the press and sometimes the media can be our own worst enemy when we talk about accountability for this administration. if you look at the edward snowden leaks and u.s. foreign heads of state, all of the attention has been on whether edward snowden is a traitor and less attention on what the government is doing. >> he seemed to engage the press. as much as the press -- >> president only -- but
4:42 pm
president only seems like sometimes he has thin skin and for fox news as a great fund-raiser. >> it is a great fund-raiser. he's not a warm person. >> i don't know about that. >> that's true. if you look at the accounts of the journalists on the campaign trail with him -- >> well, look, they are not -- this is not a guy that enjoys the back and forth of politics and, frankly, his policies have failed. he doesn't like to sit down with people and being told what he has done has failed. >> president clinton operated in a very different media space. when "the washington post" and new york sometimes were dealing with the clinton administration, there was no fox news or msnbc or -- >> oh, there was. >> 1996, 18 years ago, fox news was there. so was msnbc and my predecessor employer cnn. anyway, thank you, panel. stay with us. now to an interview you'll only see here on the record.
4:43 pm
we just spoke with tbarbara doherty, speaking about the life and death of her son. and now she's suing the government. >> i know he knew what his job was, he served for the s.e.a.l.s.s but do you have any sense that the government didn't handle this right? >> no, i think i'm more disappointed in the handling of what glen would want to happen. he would always say, you know, mom, if anything happens to me, you, greg, and kate are going to be well taken care of. so his wish is not being met and i think that disappointed me tremendously. >> what do you miss most about your son? >> talking to him, sharing recipes, talking about our
4:44 pm
flowers. just his voice, hearing his voice. it's what any mother would miss if they lose a child, no matter how they lost the child. it's something that the -- it's a parents' worse nightmare. >> you can see the full interview tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. on "on the record". straight ahead, it's not just a "new york times" reporter but also a fellow democrat and the former secretary of defense, leon panetta. that's next. you know what my business philosophy is, reynolds? no. not exactly. to attain success, one must project success. that's why we use fedex one rate. their flat rate shipping. exactly. it makes us look top-notch but we know it's affordable.

4:49 pm
democrat leon panetta blasting president only. today secretary panetta saying that president only damaged our nation's credibility by drawing a red line with syria and then not taking action when syrian's president assad used chemical weapons against his own people. >> it was important for to us stand by our word and go in and do what a commander in chief should do and i think by not doing that -- and i think initially they were going to do that and somehow began to pull back. it sent a mixed message not only to assad or so the syrians but to the world and that is not something you want to establish in the world, an issue with regards to the credibility of the united states to stand by what we say we're going to do. >> and we're back with our political panel. the secretary's new book is out today. that was right between the eyes. >> you know, it's hard hit but i kind of wonder what world leon panetta thinks we're living in. if he's talking about credibility around the world, i
4:50 pm
think the people who don't live in the united states are not foolish. they see the united states supporting a military dictatorship in europe after they supported the democratic revolution there and then saw us go to war in that they have bee financing it and its allies. the people in the arab world are not so much confused confused about what the u.s. stands for as what it's doing. it's not like there's a credibility that exists to be damaged. >> what i take away from this, i hear there is this cia and former defense secretary saying, he's a bad president. >> hillary said, don't do stupid stuff. former defense secretary robert gates also came out and
4:51 pm
