11:30 am
the world. >> thanks to all of you for watching, i'm paul gigot. hope to see you here next week. u.s. forces hoping to stop a massacre with fresh air strikes overnight and today. the pivotal syrian border town of kobani is on the age of falling into terrorist hands. kurdish militia putting up an offense and the battle of baghdad is under way, isis militants are closing within miles of the airport there and launching hit-and-run attacks against iraqi troops in a suburb of the capital. good afternoon, welcome to america's news headquarters. >> hello arthel and everyone.
11:31 am
baghdad will be just fine but predicts kobani will likely fall. the kurds are struggling to hold on, surrounded on three strides by isis who could capture the city and claim a huge propaganda victory from the west. hi, peter. >> eric, isis fighters are getting closer and closer to keep parts of baghdad despite a fresh rounds of air strikes. the state department says that american personnel on the ground there remains safe. >> we don't see an imminent threat to baghdad at this time. there's been some speculation in the press about this. iraqi security forces are strong, under constant assessment and the embassy remains open and we continue to conduct business. >> but the president's critics don't think he's doing enough to defend baghdad warning that american strategy and american movements within iraq depend on
11:32 am
keeping isis out of baghdad. >> if they do take or disrupt the bagdad airport, that means american supply lines are cut off and that means even the civilian population are not getting the supplies they need. that starts to be reminiscent of s saigon. >> kurdish forces are struggling to keep control of kobani, they begged for more air strikes and they are delivering, accepteding out an e-mail notification of four strikes to the north of kobani which took out a control and command facility and two isis units and isis fighting position. two more strikes took out three trucks used by isis fighter ez. all of the bombers and fighters exited the area we're told safely. >> thanks so much, we'll continue with the coverage of

what could happen in kobani. >> there are new steps in the efforts to prevent ebola from entering the u.s. starting today ebola screenings go into effect at jfk, new york's largest airport. travelers arriving from west africa will now have their temperature taken as they enter the country. next week four other airports across the u.s. are already set to implement the same guidelines. hi, brian. >> reporter: hi, arthel, the ebola enhanced screenings began here at jfk airport in new york at 5:00 a.m. this morning for all passengers traveling from those affected nations in west africa. we're also learning that dulless airport and atlanta's airport will begin screening on thursday. nearly all 150 passengers that come into the u.s. every day from guinea, sierra leone and
11:34 am
liberia. we're getting new photos from inside jfk as to what the screenings look like. what we understand the process is is that passengers will be given a cdc fact sheet on ebola symptoms then taken into a private screening area where they'll be asked to kpleelt a questionnaire and give contact information and then have their temperatures taken using a noncontact infrared thermometer like those being used throughout africa. >> the traveler has a fever or other symptoms or exposed to ebola, customs and border protection will refer that traveler to the centers for disease control for a public health assessment and they determine whether the traveler can continue on or is taken to a hospital for further evaluation. >> now, some public health experts that we've spoken to say
11:35 am
the screening aren't that effective. symptoms take eight to ten days to show up in people with ebola. people may lion their questionnaires or try to mask their fevers before boarding a flight. the cdc admitted the new screening proceeders would not have prevented thomas eric duncan from entering the united states. he became the first person to die of ebola in this country. >> no matter how many of these procedures are put into place, we can't get the risk to zero. that will not be the case. but this additional layer should add a measure of security and assurance to the american public. >> the cdc says they'll be monitoring how the screenings are going and make improvement along the way. arthel? >> thank you very much. jfk airport. >> the new measures are in effect in our country there are new concerns today about ebola in liberia. more than 40 u.n. staffers are said to be under close observation of a member of the
11:36 am
medical team was dying notioned with ebola. none of the staffers are so far showing signs of the deadly disease but it does happen to be the second case of the u.n. team member contracting ebola in that country. tragically the first member did die in september. the current patient now undergoing treatment for ebola in germany. americans are miserable say republicans and they blame the democrats in charge. will the message hold on election day or will both parties get a share of the blame, a fair and balanced discussion on that. inspiring children to reach their potential through the magic of music. the celebration of hispanic talent. ♪searching with devotion ♪for a snack that isn't lame ♪but this... ♪takes my breath away

11:40 am
launching another terror attack at home and wall street tanking yesterday, these are pretty dark days if you listen to some of the political ads, just over three weeks to the mid terms and that's the republican message against the democrats. >> warnings of islamic extremists, isil plotting imminent attacks. what does mark udall say? >> isil does not present an imminent threat to the nation and it does not -- >> really? can we take that chance? >> that's an ad in the colorado race for senate. will voters agree? jessica ehrlich and weston, a republican strategist also a former candidate for the house. let me start with you, is that fair or off base? >> that ad actually is shameful. that came from my own party, came from the nrsc, i don't know how they can feel good about putting that on air when gardner is standing taller than any
11:41 am
candidate in the country. what he said right after the quote used in the tv ad directly contradicted what it seems to say. he goes forward to say, if we fight isis over there on our terms, they won't be able to come here and be a threat to us. unfortunately this is the worst of the worst, i'm surprised almost shocked that the nrsc would jeopardize all of the good things gardner has going on. >> a wide range feeling, even the president echoed that, we're in a troubled time. crisis after crisis and isis threatening us and threat of foreign fighters and western passport holders who can come back here to attack us. >> we are definitely, what the american people really want to see right now are actual solutions and policy. and unfortunately what we're seeing is this sort of attempt to get out the republican base by using the politics of fear. and i don't think that's really what the american people want to
11:42 am
see. it may win a few elections but overall, it doesn't help in any way with the general sense in electorate that they don't trust the government, we're not going in the right direction. it's sort of more of the same. i don't know it's really a winning strategy. >> is it the politics as you say of fear or reality? chuck hagel says isis presents an imminent threat to u.s. national interests and there's the heightened alert and real concern about the effective radical jihadism that we have been the victims of in this country since the first attack and assassination right in the heart of midtown manhattan in 1991. >> absolutely, it's been a continuing growing issue, for those there on september 11th, we've been incredibly heightened since then but haven't seen this real emotional pull that's we've been having in these ads where they are really going after things in quite a while. in 2010 the main issue
11:43 am
republicans ran on when they swept into office were the economy and on the affordable health care act. we're seeing this shift away from policy issues and real answers and solutions to more of the sort of building on all of the anxieties that people are feeling now. and it's very stark difference between what obama and democrats have been pushing since 2008, which is a sense of hope and optimism and going into the opposite direction there. unfortunately, i think it does more damage to our policies and ability of washington to actually get things accomplished. >> let's look what the president himself admits. i was referring 1991 was the assassination by an islamic radical terrorist. there are times when i think in this country we doubt ourselves and times we're uncertain of the changes taking place across the globe. when you see headlines every single day and read about isis and ebola and russian inkurgss into ukraine, there's a sense
11:44 am
that the world is spinning so farce and nobody is able to control it. we want to look to the oval office to be able to protect us, weston and that's what americans want. >> that's the last thing you want to hear from the commander in chief. this is what's going on. republicans are in position to take the senate. right now we're in a hold. unfortunately all of this negative campaigning, fear mongering, it is symptom attic of the core problem that republicans have. we don't have any leadership at the top and we don't have a cohesive compelling message. we do have enough in enough states to pick up six and move forth. two years from now we better come back with something a whole lot better if my generation is going to have any interest in the republican nominee. >> we've got three weeks to go until the election and we'll see how this shakes out. thank you so much for your analysis. >> thanks. >> arthel? >> eric, as you know, for the last -- ♪ >> all right, great music, for the last four weeks we've been

another breach in cyberspace with hackers threatening to leak a massive database of private pictures that were supposed to be deleted. the whole thing centers around the mobile app called snap chat. a messaging program that allows users to trade photos before automatically erasing them. just seconds after they're viewed. the company says its servers were never compromised. blaming third party apps designed to save them unbeknownst to the person who sent them. snapchat is particularly popular among teenagers prompting concerns over child pornography. u.s. airways is apologizing after refusing to allow first sergeant albert marle to hang up his jacket.

hello, i'm eric shawn. welcome to a new hour of "america's news headquarters." >> good to see you. i'm arthel neville. topping the news this hour, we are a few weeks away from the midterm elections, and candidates are making their final pitch to voters. with so many states in a tossup, the political fate of the country could come down to one thing. we'll tell you what that is. and you know launching attacks just outside of baghdad. u.s. officials say they're not worried that baghdad will fall, but locals say the situation is
12:01 pm
much worse than officials claim. also, snapchat hacked. 200,000 pictures stolen, pictures that are supposedly immediately deleted and hackers are threatening to expose all of this. but first, we start with the top story at this hour. will isis win? and capture kobani? the kurdish fighters say they may not be able to hold out much longer. another round of air strikes took out six isis targets around kobani. but the bombing by the u.s. coalition so far has done very little to slow the isis march which has so far taken much of that city. there has been fierce fighting near the center of town and the united nations is now warning thousands of innocent and helpless citizens who are trapped there could be slaughtered if isis is victorious. greg palkot joins us live near
12:02 pm
the turkish border. >> reporter: eric, it's become a symbol for the isis and there's some am cher video out. we can't confirm the authenticity but it purports to show isis. and the terrorists are having no problem getting resupplied and reinforced. as for the kurdish defenders they say they're getting neither, but there are late reports of them fighting on all sides of the town. now cent com is confirming the new reports. and before isis entered the town, before the tanks were out in the open and easy to hit there was very little u.s. air activity. as for the tanks in the turkish military they're doing nothing. turkey does not seem want to get involved in this fight at least
12:03 pm
right now. it is reported today, however, that they have agreed to train something like 2,000 moderate syrian rebels to help in the fight against isis, but that's a long term thing. finally, there are those new fears for the fate of the civilians trapped inside kobani and for the refugees who fled isis and have come here to turkey for safety. their number is now up to 200,000. there is a human tragedy unfolding on both sides of this border. back to you, eric. >> greg at the u.n. is warning there's that tragedy unfolding as the word must do something about it, but it is unable to stop it. thank you so much. and eric, meantime, a car bomb tearing through the capital of baghdad in iraq. the death toll rising to at least 30 people, having been killed in the shiite area. those who side with sunni muslims are believed to have been the ones who set off a series of coordinated attacks around the city but no one is claiming responsibility so far. isis terrorists are also battling for control of the
12:04 pm
suburb abu ghraib, just eight miles from the key baghdad airport. in britain, there are alarming concerns now over a possible terror attack that continues to rise. the mayor of london boris johnson says british security forces are keeping a close eye on he says, thousands, yes, thousands of potential extremists. earlier this week, authorities arrested five men for questioning about a possible terrorist plot. reports say one recently returned from syria. about 500 britons are believed to have gone and joined isis. about half of those have said to have returned so that's why they're really worried in britain. the powerful enterovirus has taken the life of a second child. doctors at the children's hpt of michigan say 21-month-old madeleine reed died of complications due to the super virus. the cdc has claimed cases of
12:05 pm
enterovirus d68. madeleine is the only second one to succumb to the virus. an enhanced ebola screening beginning at jfk airport. from the passengers coming from three western african countries. officials are checking temperatures from liberia, sierra leone and guinea. the program will be expanded over the next week to four other airports. new jersey's newark liberty, washington dulles, chicago o'hare and hartsfield jackson in atlanta. we have more in new york city. >> reporter: good afternoon, arthel. the centers for disease control says this could be the first of more safeguards put in place as the ebola crisis continues around the world. as of 5:00 a.m., the first passengers were screened here at jfk internal airport from -- international airport from the affected west africa countries.
12:06 pm
screenings at atlanta and newark airport will begin on thursday. nearly all of the 150 passengers that come into the u.s. every day from sierra leone, liberia and guinea travel through these five airports. now we're just getting in new photos of what this screening looks like. really what happens is that the passengers get off -- get off the plane. they have to go and they're given a questionnaire. it's a fact sheet on ebola symptoms. they are escorted into the private screening area where they're given a questionnaire. at that point, their temperature is taken with a non-contact infrared thermometer. if a passenger has any ebola symptoms or has been in contact with anybody with the virus they're taken to the quarantine room in the airport where it's decided if they need more medical attention or need to be put in isolation. >> this new entry screening procedure is just one part of a multilayered approach. already there are 100% of the
12:07 pm
travelers leaving the three affected countries that are being screened on exit. with risk based questionnaires asking about exposure, asking about symptoms, and taking temperatures. >> reporter: now some public health experts we have spoken to said that the screenings aren't that effective. for one it takes about eight to ten days for symptoms to start showing and people that may have -- in people that may have ebola. and the issue is that people may lie on the questionnaires or in fact mask their fevers before they get on the plane. >> additional screening might pick up a few extra people who might have been missed the first time around or might have come down with symptoms while they were in flight. and it wasn't noticed. but the value added is small, but maybe it's reassuring to some people. >> the cdc has admitted that the new enhanced screening
12:08 pm
procedures would not have stopped thomas eric duncan from coming from liberia into the u.s. he became the first person to die of ebola in this country. arthel? >> okay, thank you very much. in the meantime, in liberia 41 united nations members are now under medical observation after one of its medical teams contracted ebola. the u.n. peacekeeping mission in liberia says the measure is precautionary. and none of the staff members have yet shown signs of the deadly disease. it happens to be the second case of the u.n. staffer contracting ebola in liberia. tragically, the first u.n. official died last month. hackers breaking into another internet site. and they say they're planning a massive leak online. right now they're threatening to publish as many as 200,000 intimate photos and videos. a lot of them captured from snapchat. it is supposed to instantly delete the images after you view
12:09 pm
them, but apparently some of the compromising images are still floating out there somewhere. we may see. will karl has the latest. fill us in. >> reporter: well, there's a report out that at least 100,000 snapchat users may have had their pictures hacked. snapchat is very popular among teenagers and young adults. it has been doing so well that the company is trying to prove it has the value of $10 billion. but according to business insiders snapchat user pictures including a number of nude pics some of underage users started to show up recently. it's called the snappening and the hackers are collecting pictures and videos for years. the response -- snapchat took to twitter tweeting we can confirm that snapchat's servers were never breached and were not the source of these leaks. snapchatters were victimized by their use of third party apps to send and receive snaps, which we
12:10 pm
expressly prohibit. they're pushing the blame to the users. bottom line, any time you take a picture with an app or a smartphone it can end up in the wrong hands. >> anything you're gonna send using the internet can probably be -- probably be seen by somebody else. >> reporter: this comes on the heels of a number of celebrities having their icloud accounts hacked and eric, any time that happens again it could get out to the public. jennifer lawrence went as far as to call that incident a sex crime. >> all right. boy, i hope they don't come out. thanks so much. later on in the newscast we'll talk about your legal rights, what are your options if your security on the internet is breached? if the crooks get your personal data or release any photos that you have, even if it's just your

a recent gallup poll finds voters are less engaged in this year's midterm elections than in 2010 and 2006. this could be bad news for the democrats because core groups in the liberal groups are more likely to stay at home. this shows a virtual tie in the race for the senate majority. let's bring in david hockings from roll call. >> how are you? >> i'm well. when it gets down to voter turnout which party benefits and which one takes a hit? >> well, it does seem from gallup's fascinating new set of numbers that it's the republicans are in better position with the little bit more than three weeks to go than the democrats are. here's why. what gallup asked is, are you paying a lot of attention to this election and are you really motivated to go out and vote? and many more republicans say
12:17 pm
yes to those questions than democrats. >> in fact, since -- hang on. let me pop the poll up on the screen. basically, this gallup poll from last week found that voters are less engaged in this year's midterm than 2010 and 2006. only 33% responding said that they were giving at least some thought to the upcoming midterms compared to 46%, again in 2010 and 42% in 2006 and it's even more troubling, david, for democrats. republicans held a 12 point advantage when those paying some attention were broken down by party. so take it away, david. >> so what that would suggest is that the republicans are -- they smell victory. and so they're more motivated to get out there and vote to be a part of a -- to be on the winning side. now that doesn't always translate until -- until they're actually going to the polls on november 4th and voting. you know, mitt romney knows that
12:18 pm
as well as anybody else. plenty of polls two years ago that made it look as though mitt romney might win the popular vote on election day, but the president's side did a better job than the republican side did on getting people to the polls. so this is all about in the closing days often in the last 72 hours of an election, which side actually makes good on getting its people to go to the polls, making sure that enthusiasm stays where it is until the very end. so some of this i guess what i'm trying to say is, what the gallup shows now might not translate even three weeks from now because when they say they're excited, that means they're -- they think they're going to win so they they're going to participate and they night not in the end. >> meanwhile, you look at minorities, you look at single women, look at the youth voter which are typically the core for the democratic base there, so then at this point based on the polls we're now analyzing if that is the party that is going to be suffering from voter turnout as it stands now, what should the democrats do in these

next three weeks to get their base out there? >> you know, gosh, i don't know. they are certainly hoping to energize their base at the very end with, you know, with appeals, getting some of their favorite surrogates out there. we know that for example hillary clinton is going i believe to a dozen different states in the last three weeks to try and rally the base. she's concentrating in swing states and with -- and focused on women candidates, to constituencies that would obviously be important to her if she runs in 2016. the president staying away. the president is trying to raise money for the democratic party, but as you have noticed, he is not on the screen too much stumping for many people because his popularity remains super low. so they don't want the presid t president -- very few candidates actually want to stand on the podium with the president in time. >> so david, when you look at is some of the states that you have the high profile, competitive races, do you think voter turnout will be higher in those
12:20 pm
states? >> it certainly should because the wave of attention is enormous. lots of stories on the local news. obviously tons and tons of advertising. tons of direct mail. the idea is that they're going to get both sides are working extremely hard to plump up the turnout in those states. so it might be really low. we talked 40% in the last couple of midterms. in some states where they're not competitive senate races or no senate races at all or no competitive house races it could be down in the mid 20s. in some of the really hot senate races, roll call has five races that are total up -- totally up for grabs. we see the map differently than these guys do. alaska, colorado, iowa, kansas and louisiana are the ones we think are totally deadlocked with a little bit less of a deadlock north carolina, arkansas and new hampshire and kentucky. but those nine states you've got to assume that the turnout is going to be up close to presidential levels and that
12:21 pm
it's in both sides interest to make it happen that way. >> oh, boy. tell you what, quickly, just to touch on this for me shortly. of course we know the saying is all politics is local. but do you think the ebola, the isis fight, this general sense of chaos is going to affect voter turnout this midterm election? >> i think it could. it's definitely something that the democrats are worried about. that this could -- that this goes to the president's -- their argument that the government is not running a competent government, they can't get the basics right that's one of the main arguments for voting against the president, using this vote to cast a vote against obama, elect more republicans to congress and maybe it will run more competent. >> david hawkings, you'll be watching and we will be too. thank you. now to some place where they don't have a real election -- north korea. the leader of the state, still missing. kim jong-un failed to show up for two major events yesterday. he hasn't missed them in recent
12:22 pm
years and that's only heightened speculation about his fate and what's going on behind the walls of that despicable dictatorship. jonathan hunt has the details. >> reporter: no one outside north korea is certain where kim jong-un is and very few inside the country probably know for sure. most experts don't believe there's been a coup and the best guess is that he is sick and doesn't want to appear in public. he has made no public appearances since september 3 around he was note -- and he was notably absent from the friday's event founding the ruler's party. the last couple of times he was seen in public, july and august, he had a pronounced limp. gout among the most possible causes. ♪ a state tv documentary recently alluded to a health issue. that narration saying in part that he is lighting the path to
12:23 pm
the people like the flicker of a flame, despite suffering discomfort. but if kim jong-un is physically weak, he is likely to be politically weak too. that matters to the united states. because north korea is a nuclear armed nation that is continually developing longer range missiles. so u.s. officials always need to know who's in control of those weapons. then there's the on going tension on the korean peninsula. south korean activists released the balloons on the border, protesting his dictatorship. and in response, north korean forces fired anti-aircraft rounds across the border with the south korean military returning heavy machine gun fire. >> these are adults who are killing each other. and some of them have access to nukes, long range missiles and large stocks of chemical and biological agents. >> reporter: the longer kim jong-un remains out of sight, the more dangerous it becomes. the various groups compete for
12:24 pm
power. while u.s. officials say they're not overly concerned, they are watching this situation very closely. in new york, jonathan hunt, fox news. >> thank you. well, you know so much of our lives, personal and business, conducted online, but with the increasing dangers of hacking your private information is in danger of being stolen, so what are your legal options? answers from our legal panel. it's a new information revelation now being exposed from the clinton library. they have released thousands of documents that have been hidden until now. some of them show how the white house tried to defend the president after his affair with monica lewinsky. next, we'll take a look at what they say.
12:25 pm

well, it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news. parts of the centers for disease

control's newest strategy to keep ebola from entering our country again is going into effect today. john f. kennedy international airport is taking the first steps to take the temperatures of travelers from africa to check for signs of the deadly disease. four other airports will follow this procedure next week. isis militants continue to advance on kobani, despite another round of air strikes overnight. isis is launching attacks on the baghdad suburbs but u.s. officials say it's little here than harassment. and japan is bracing for a powerful typhoon. it is expected to reach okinawa in a couple hours. the authorities are also warning torrential rainfall can cause flooding and mudslides. destructive winds and high waves have killed at least nine people including three u.s. military officials and a u.s. airman. the national archives releasing new documents from the clinton administration. the records include how the
12:30 pm
white house tried to defend president clinton after his affair with monica lewinsky. molly henneberg has more. >> reporter: only one e-mail from lewinsky was released in this latest batch of papers from the clinton presidential library. most of them were withheld the library says for reasons of personal privacy. in the e-mail from march 1996, llewynsky asked if she could hang this picture in her shared white house office. we now know they were well into the affair by now, that led to his impeachment. another e-mail from the white house deputy personnel director showed clinton aides trying to get lewinsky transferred to the pentagon. patsy thomas said, quote, we are working closely with the dod to make this happen for monica. we have not finalized the deal. our director is to make sure she has a job in an agency. there are several papers related to the whitewater real estate
12:31 pm
and fraud investigation and hillary clinton's legal work during that time. one unsigned memo meant to prep the president for his march 24, 1994, press conference on whitewater urged him to stick up for his wife. it said, quote, depend hrc. stress her ethics and accomplishments a as a lawyer and in doing public service work. a person whose life and career exemplified highest. and in one write paper she writes yet another meeting that goes nowhere. another useless conversation. arthel? >> molly henneberg, thanks. well, ever heard about this, yep, another security breach in cyb cyb cyberspa cyberspace. it's on the service snapchat. you know it has the pictures
12:32 pm
that disappears and they said the servers were never compromised. snapchat blames third party apps instead for the messages that apparently that are out there. what happens when you fall victim to a security breach, whether it's snapchat or your money? let's bring in our legal panel. man oh, man, everyone worries about this. >> every day. >> you go on and you buy stuff on the internet, you put all your information, personal, financial, and someone sucked your money out. how do you stop this? >> i don't know if we'll be able to stop it, but this is one area of law that's very consumer friendly. you have rights when that happens to you. the bank will step up and make you whole. we're not going to bank with an institution that isn't going to give us that promise. i think the problem that consumers have here is proving damages when something like this happens to you. how can you put a price tag on the fact that some day, your identity might get stolen? how do you measure that? it's difficult.
12:33 pm
>> home depot, chase bank has had -- they said no money was taken from chase so far. but a lot of hackers got a lot of information. walmart. happening every day. when we go on and check, i agree, legal thing that no one ever reads what does it say and how does it protect us? or does it? >> how long do you have for me to tell you what that little box says? you're right, nobody reads it at all. it's incredibly consumer friendly, and that's a good thing. because -- >> it is consumer friendly? >> it is consumer friendly. if people think they're somehow isolated from this because they're doing their online banking because they're in the privacy of their home they're crazy. the number with jpmorgan chase, 76 million households. everybody is vulnerable to this. but luckily, we can have recourse with credit card companies and the banks that will protect us, but the big problem is identify theft.
12:34 pm
that goes beyond somebody having your credit card. >> i said walmart, i meant to say kmart. so let's talk about kmart. you look to see your balance. i mean, do you get your money back? how can you prevent it? who do you go to if you lose something? >> you go to the card issuer first. that doesn't stop you. you have the right to sue the retailer, target which was one of the biggest data breaches that we had. several class action lawsuits are in the works by the consumers against them. and here again they're not just alleging, hey, you breached the contract by allowing my data to be released but in the future, you were negligent in allowing it to happen. my identity could get stolen. again, if you're in the middle of buying a house and suddenly your credit score plummets from 726 to 650 because somebody is pretending to be you, how do you put a price tag on it? how do you make that person whole? that's the issue. >> so what is your advice, what should we do? you look to see -- check your balance every day or so to make
12:35 pm
sure. you know, what else can we do, especially because there's so many cards. there may be a little thing in there that's -- from somebody. >> there was actually a scam recently where people assumed that the hackers assumed that people don't check for small amounts. it was called the $9.84 scam. what can someone do? i think the first thing anybody should do is file a report with the police as well. you want to have information on file that you -- that you immediately lodged the complaint. >> not just enough to call the credit card company? also call the local cops? >> i think you should. you should have your report and that it was timely made. then you also need to go back and check your statements. we know this, it's a busy world. but you need to do it. but there are also prophylactic measures that can be used. every year, running your credit card scores to make sure they're
12:36 pm
consistent with where you think they should be. >> how do you do that? >> there's a free annual credit report you can run and there are other companies that will notify you if you're a problem. banks and credit cards will do activity reports if something seems out of -- out of the ordinary. >> one other tip though, you can contact the credit reporting agencies and alert them you have been the subject of fraud. so that when someone steals your identity you have a paper trail. >> they seem to do a pretty good job. they can call you, if it looks like an odd charge. and finally, we didn't get to the nudie pictures. what are you going to do about that? >> stop taking nudie pictures. >> i know. snapchat, i feel sorry for them. but if you don't want your nudie picture out among everybody, don't take that nudie picture. that's my advice. thank you so much. arthel? thank you, eric, and turkey won't help in kobani unless there's a no fly zone. that could have severe

the father of a new jersey boy who died from enterovirus started a foundation. that foundation is called the first day of school. you know, this little boy, 4-year-old eli waller died last month after he contracted this virus. he went to sleep and so sadly did not wake up. his father says the name of the foundation came from how eli loved the first day of school so much. >> when something like this happens, you have to make a choice. and that choice is are you gonna just sit and languish and be sad for the rest of your life? or are you going to make something good happen?
12:42 pm
my heart is broken. i think he would be happy that we're trying to do what we're trying to do here and that we're trying to start up this foundation. >> mr. waller says his son was like a shy little puppy who was full of unconditional love. he says the foundation will provide financial assistance to kids who are in special education. and this comes also tragedy as today we learned that a 21-month-old girl in michigan has also died of enterovirus. okay, eric, as the battle for kobani rages, turkish tanks it is miles away, idle. well, that's because the turkish government is in a staring match with the white house. turkey won't help unless the u.s. agrees to a no fly zone in syria, but that would force the obama administration to work with the government of bashar al assad or go it alone. an aggression that could very well start a war with syria. we have the executive director
12:43 pm
of the foundation for defense of democracy. mark, thank you for joining us. so you have thousands of peop people -- people, civilians in kobani facing the very likelihood of being slaughtered by isis. all right, you have that. and then you have inside of turkey there -- his own peace talks with the turkish kurds possibly in jeopardy. so how does erduwon act to this? >> well, he is trying to face down the white house over that. he's leaving the border between turkey and syria open for the cash and the men and weapons that have moved over to the jihadists. many of them who have become members of the islamic state. >> yes. okay, let's get back to this turkey wanting this no fly zone. over syria. that's because he wants to keep the ground as a training base for the rebels willing to fight
12:44 pm
assad because he's hell bent on regime change in syria. if he maintains that position, that it has to be assad out only or i'm going to sit here and remain idle, meanwhile, those doesn't he risk the support, the financial support he needs? he's got 1.4 million syrian refugees inside of his own country now. he needs the financial aid of the international community. >> arthel, you're right, he does need the aid of the financial community. he needs western political support, but he is not wrong. that's no successful resolution to this crisis with isis unless the assad regime is defeated. there is no way we're going to get the support, not only of the sunni moderate rebels on the ground that so called boots on the ground that the obama administration refuses to actually put western boots on the ground, to fight this fight, but we're not going to get the support of the sunni arab
12:45 pm
countries. assad has to go his air force has to be obliterated. otherwise, he's going to continue slaughtering tens of thousands of syrians. so erdowon is not wrong, he is wrong in that the rebels he wants to train and assist are islamist or jihadists. we have got to have a no fly zone that we we actually install and we have to support the syrian moderates in this fight against isis and assad. >> why do you believe that president obama is reluctant to go head to head with assad? is it that isis poses a more direct threat to the u.s. or is there something else? >> i think there's something else, arthel. the president is deeply committed to a resolution of the iranian nuclear crisis. assad is a close iranian ally. and it's because of iran and hezbollah support of assad that he's still in power.
12:46 pm
the president has shown deep reluctance since the beginning of this syrian crisis in 2011 to confront assad, to confront iran and to confront hezbollah. he still holds out hope of an iranian nuclear deal and as a result, he's done nothing to actually stem the tide of bloodshed and this onslaught that assad has launched against husband -- his own people. >> but critics are looking at obama and saying why? i'm not sure you can answer that. >> the president has said the tide of war is receding, that al qaeda was on the run. he called the islamic state a junior varsity team. the president unfortunately when it comes to syria has gotten it consistently wrong and that's not just my opinion as you alluded to. that's the opinion of leon panetta and hillary clinton and many former officials of the obama administration who believe that the president's syria
12:47 pm
policy has been one of neglect and that ultimately it has gotten us into a situation where in the heart of the middle east the islamic state is creating a jihad state and assad is continuing his butchering of the syrian people. >> i was reading where a resident of raqqah that said the u.s. led attacks began, the syrian government air strikes have stopped. i mean, how do you rate the u.s. air strike campaign so far? how is it going? >> air strike campaign has been limited. up fortunately it's been -- unfortunately it an been constrained by an unfortunate reality. because we don't have gboots on the ground, it is difficult to paint targets and have our jet fighters hit the targets. we are now in a situation where the islamic state is starting to melt away. and they're starting to hide amongst civilians and use civilians as human shields and i worry that we're going to face
12:48 pm
accusations of war crimes. this is a very similar situation to what the israelis face with hamas in the gaza war this summer. i think the administration is beginning to appreciate and will begin to appreciate that the excruciating dilemmas that the israe israeli air force faced against another jihad group. >> well, i'd love talking but i'm out of time. thank you for your expertise this afternoon. >> thank you. it is one of the most iconic fields in major league baseball. wrigley field. home of the chicago cubs. but you know the 100-year-old stadium is now facing an upgrade. will they keep the ivy? dad, i know i haven't said this often enough, but thank you. thank you mom for protecting my future. thank you for being my hero and my dad. military families are uniquely thankful for many things, the legacy of usaa auto insurance could be one of them. if you're a current or former military member or their family,

. big waves from leon pinetta this week. >> former top level members of obama's team can't wait to publish their memoirs, even though he's not yet out of the white house. hillary, robert gates and now leon panetta. his recollections are the most damaging. a guarantee of world war media coverage. on his book tour, mr. panetta described the administration as the place where no one is willing to engage. no one trusts anybody.
12:53 pm
and rather than force the issue, everybody is giving up. it's risky to attribute selfless motives to mr. panetta, a man whose open smile belies his ambition and, too, the particular level of an incompetence that prevades the obama staff is not to be ignored, except that mr. panetta was part of it and saying you fought against terrible odds is not expleitation. he has held a lifetime of key jobs in our politics. a congressman for 16 years, budget director and chief of staff for bill clinton and then secretary of defense and cia director under mr. obama. this book is not mr. panetta's first literary effort. he started out as a republican in the nixon administration, got fired, wrote an attack book and became a democrat in 1971.
12:54 pm
it was safe to be a democrat then. one of the quite bits often passed around d.c. is that the former cia chief reads in italian. that may be true that except privately mr. panetta is more likely to be credited with in sight. a fine hand of one who advises to review, wrote in the 16th century against the backdrop of a corrupt florentine republic princes but when they sent a general into the field, leave the wisest order they can give him never risk a battle and avoid a general action. the affable mr. panetta is setting himself up as mr. washington's gray eminence. a post that has been vacant for
12:55 pm
some time now. like a weather vain for power, mr. panetta follows the winds of change. and now with an exhausted president who has all but given up, he disparages everyone except hillary, who was a presumed presidential candidate for 2016. her buddy, mr. panetta, is not retiring from the field, just clearing it for the next. >> wrigley field is getting a $575 million facelift. commissioner bud selig and chicago mayor rahm emanuel attending today's official groundbreaking ceremony for the field renovation project at the homes of the chicago cubs. the first phase will add new bleachers and seven outfield signs and, yes, eric, the ivy will stay. wrigley field was built in 1914 and it is the second oldest field in the majors. officials say the goal is to provide upgraded facilities for fans and players while
