3:01 am
who doesn't love a puppy? give me a second. i'm welling up. super bowl advertisers caving to concerns over this ad. sorry, danica patrick. why is everyone so upset? >> but the puppy just got home. why would people be upset. >> steve, you said that out lord. mornings are better with friends. >> hey. this is john ratzingberger and you're watching "fox & friends." >> welcome to "fox & friends" where everybody knows your name. >> so glad you joined us this morning. >> by the way quick thing. cliff said he had the best job because he wore the same thing every day. he was the mail man on the
3:02 am
set. just like going to catholic school. >> we're so glad to have you with us this morning. we're also glad to see ainsley earhardt. how are you? >> great. there has been a lot going on. let me tell you what's happening. filling in for her they are nauert right now -- for heather nauert. the blizzard that blasted long island in new york up to maine is crippling travel, stranding passengers. look at the line of cots at la guardia airport. at this hour more than 900 flights canceled. 400,000 fliers have been affected over the past three days costing them and the economy a whopping $235 million. airlines hoping to have everything back on track by the end of the week. caught on camera the incredible moment a heroic councilman pulls his gun to defend his colleague from a shooter. >> get down! get down!
3:03 am
everybody get down! >> that went right through the door. >> everyone get down. >> somebody got shot. >> stay down. >> the gunman hitting two cops before being fatally shot by other officers. the two officers who were hit are making full recoveries. a disturbing new beheading video just released by isis makes a direct threat against president obama and america. an extremist saying, quote we will cut off your head in the white house and transform america into a muslim province. this as the terror network continues to demand the freedom of a prisoner held in jordan or else, they say, a jordanian hostage and the remaining japanese hostage in their captivity will die in 24 hours if the militant is not released. spoim president obama and the first lady back in the white house this morning after a trip to india and saudi arabia but michelle obama making headlines after the new saudi king's entourage refused to shake her hand. you can see them just
3:04 am
nodding their heads as they're passing her by. saudis are reporting their outrage. the first lady did not cover her hair with a headscarf during that visit for king abdullah's funeral. saudi arabia is the only country in the world where women are banned from driving cars among other restrictions. those are your headlines. >> i read also in the news reports they blurred her out. >> that may or may not be true. >> imagine that. >> something we told you about yesterday, tony shaffer, former intel guy all around smart guy was on with bill o'reilly two nights ago and said bowe bergdahl will be charged with desertion. sergeant bowe bergdahl walked off base in 2009. five or six americans were killed looking for him. he was traded for five high-valued taliban commanders. those five right there. well, this hit the fan yesterday. nbc confirmed what mr. shea
3:05 am
mr. shea -- mr. schaffer told us. nbc was told by senior defense officials he would be charged. admiral john kirby women -- john kirby will join us in about 90 minutes. was asked about it. listen. >> no decision has been made in respect to the case of sergeant bergdahl. none. there is no time line to make that decision and the general is not being put under pressure to make that decision. i think it is extraordinarily premature for anybody to say that they know what general milley is going to decide and when he's going to decide it. >> lieutenant colonel tony shaffer doubled down on his statement saying he believes that charge sheet was offered there, they have it in their hands as it relates to bergdahl and he believes this delay is politically motivated. watch this.
3:06 am
>> i stand by those facts. if you look at what admiral kirby said in the written statements from the pentagon they don't deny the material findings of the report or what i said is in the report. they're being very careful how they parse their words and i think there's reasons why. i do stand by the fact that my understanding is that bergdahl's lawyer has been given a statement of charges, a charge sheet that says this is what to expect. >> lieutenant colonel tony shaffer comes back on bill o'reilly. bill says there's been fall back. what do you say? i double down. my sources are fine. if you're in the military and did the investigation, how hard is it? two years ago we had on the people he was serving with who went hunting for him, the the missions that they were preventing from going forward with because they had to look for this guy. they knew that he left. his buddies knew that he left. how hard is it to come to a conclusion? however, if the army is done with their report -- and i imagine they are -- and they're big on
3:07 am
deadlines and they were told no rush to get the story out, what if the army tapped into somebody who used to be in the military but they often do, they can speak freely to get it out there. to pressure the administration perhaps to come out with a report and the conclusion. >> something the white house saw as a double. bringing an american home and the operation of letting gitmo become a nothing. release these five and also you get the applause of bringing an american home. but if he's a traitor, if he's a deserter at all, even if he wasn't, is it worth the trade? and did it open up a pandora's box? >> we're going to talk to admiral kirby 90 minutes from now here on fox. our lead story in the northeast there was a monster storm. here in new york city thankfully we were not hit. we were told we were going to wind up with feet. we got inches. >> suffolk county on long island got hit but when it came to new york city you
3:08 am
saw the governor and mayor racing in a panic because they wanted to be safe and be sorry. for the first time in our 110-year history we shut down the subways shut off commerce and individuals got $300 tickets for being out past curfew. >> people saying you shouldn't be outside if you don't need to. when that ban was lifted and i was walking around yesterday a bunch of stores were closed. obviously damage there in economic numbers. but then people were outside. please let us outside, tell me it's okay. hundreds of kids sledding and walking but some were worried this may have been an indication of a nanny state mentality. this is "the new york post" comments on that. >> this is a self-governing society. if you want to go outside when it o'snowy and -- when it's snowy and slippery that's fine. mayor de blasio warned people not to go outside and buy eggs because they might slip and fall. we're his boss.
3:09 am
he is not our boss. i don't need to hear from my mayor that i'm not supposed to go outside when it's snowing. >> in 1888 there was a giant blizzard in new york city and people said you know what? we've got to do something. let's dig a subway system underground. the subway was created because of a blizzard back in 1888. my problem with, it's always best, i feel, to be safe than sorry, but they pulled the plug so fast. they have never in the 101-year history of the subway turned it off because of snow. >> it's already underground. >> this became a political hot potato that governor cuomo and the mayor of new york city, de blasio they both have had terrible p.r. problems and wanted to be the hero of the storm. they overdid it. people were safe that's the good thing but i think they overdid it. >> do you think the
3:10 am
government should shut it down to protect us from our own decisions or was this just safety? what do you think? >> should we be allowed in a snowstorm to run with scissors? that's the big question. >> you're not the boss of me. >> danica patrick is supposed to be on "fox & friends" when we go to the super bowl tomorrow. she canceled her appearance. did it have anything to do with the fact that her ad got canceled for go daddy. watch the ad and see what you think the problem is. ♪ >> it's buddy! i'm so glad you made it home. because i just sold you on this website i built with go daddy. >> ship him out. >> get your domain and website all in one. >> did danica patrick just
3:11 am
drive that puppy off? >> it's a bit of a shocker. there are a ton of complaints coming from animal rights activists. >> peta is furious. they say anybody who sells a dog on-line is a callous jerk and it supports puppy mills and inhumane breeding practices. the guy who writes go daddy -- there is that adorable little dog. the c.e.o. says quote what should have been a funny ad clearly missed the mark and we will not air it. go daddy will run an ad. they already paid $4 million for the spot. they haven't announced what they're going to run. >> let us know what you think about that. >> do you have a problem with that, shipping the puppy off? >> let's call beth stern. she'll be the ultimate job. >> 11 minutes after the top of the hour on this busy wednesday. coming up, the united states never negotiated with terrorists, we are told, until now. wait until you hear what is in the files of terrorists we swapped for bowe bergdahl.

they have been called the worst of the worst, a 2008 pentagon report revealing the taliban five was a significant risk to the united states and its allies and that trade for bowe bergdahl was reportedly just the first. the obama administration accused of releasing convicted terrorist al mari in exchange for prisoners in qatar. we're going to ask major pete hegseth c.e.o. of concerned veterans for america and a fox news contributor. this is troubling. we're at war and when you see the taliban 5 to understand that a trade was made and the precedent it set, i'd love to get your message on what this sends globally to our enemies.
3:17 am
>> that's the most dangerous aspect. these five we're willing to trade them for a deserter who we knew was a deserter at the time. the investigations after the fact very clearly reveal that they slow walked it. you guys outlined very clearly. this sends a message to our enemy that we are willing to negotiate with terrorists effectively negotiate with terrorists. think about those words coming off the lips of an american. it's something we've never been willing to do starting with jefferson and the barbery pirates. we don't negotiate with terrorists. we act strongly based on our principle and will. here we've decided that door is open and islamists are exploiting the heck out of it. >> it's a form of currency. let's go through these five, high risk individuals. abdul haik. he was sent to qatar. >> high level taliban commander. what you'll see on all of these guys is red, green
3:18 am
red. high risk low threat from a detention perspective. these guys are likely to go back to the battle field and try to fight americans and still have connections to taliban leadership. it's not as if he's going to know what's happening right now because of actual intelligence. he knows the networks, he knows the people still facilitating attacks in pakistan and sphagz. sphagz. -- and afghans. >> number two, noori. >> a connection to al qaeda. this guy was not just an intelligence officer but an action oriented guy working with al qaeda in attempts to attack americans on the battle field. you'll notice the trend red, green red. high risk high intelligence value. >> we could be getting information from them? >> we pulled this guy off the battle field in 2002. not as if we're going to get information that will lead us to somebody now. it's the networks and how they communicate who's connected to who that has
3:19 am
value. >> what about this one also sent to qatar? >> who knows how long he'll be held at qatar? >> high risk. >> when they say low threat from a detention perspective, that means at guantanamo bay he's a low threat to perpetuate attacks. he's docile there. it's not as if these guys are a low threat in that sense. >> what about karula karakwa? >> close ties to osama bin laden. he's also accused of trafficking heroin. these are guys who not just are committed to fighting and killing americans but they're involved in nice side businesses as well to facilitate and finance the things they do. >> mohammed nabi. >> senior taliban leader held multiple leadership positions within the taliban. once again a commander of the haqqani network there in eastern afghanistan and
3:20 am
pakistan. a member of the haqqani network. a variation in our pattern of red, green red. also a high threat from a detention perspective. these guys are all looking to go back to the field. >> they're in qatar and chances are they will go back to the battle field. >> and we traded them for someone we knew was a deserter. we knew it. the colonel was right. others talking about this are right. we knew what this guy did. we traded because this president wants to shut down guantanamo bay and knew this was the way to get five of the worst out first so he could pursue a political agenda. >> putting us further at risk, you say? >> that's right. absolutely. >> thank you. coming up, did you know that police departments around the country are logging everywhere you go with license plate readers and they are keeping the information? is that okay in the name of solving crime or an invasion of privacy? a debate on that next. and this robbery attempt didn't work out the way the criminal had in

3:25 am
robbery. now watch. she manages to scramble into the police cruiser's front seat and drives away at 100 miles an hour using just her knee. she then ditched the car yelled to a nearby person to take the car, still in handcuffs and this not so smooth criminal gets stuck upside down, dangling from a window -- this is a different story -- the would-be burglar gets caught with his feet sticking out. police arrested him and charges the 27-year-old man with hanging outside of a window. he was there for five hours. >> could have been beer involved. college. meanwhile, it's a question of policing versus privacy. automatic license plate readers are used as a crime-fighting tool by law enforcement all across the country right now. there's a possibility you haven't heard about these things. the readers take pictures of our license plates, then they are crosschecked against a wanted data base. critics say the surveillance is basically the same thing as spying. is your personal information at risk?
3:26 am
joining us is former deputy assistant attorney general tom dupree and retired d.e.a. agent edward fall. good morning to both of you. tom, if you're just driving around in your car out in public and there is something on a police car that is reading your license plate, why do you have a problem with that? >> steve, i think the concern here is that this is a program that originated in connection with the border, that law enforcement was focused on drug traffickers and in that context it can make sense to track vehicles that might be moving around the border in suspicious patterns. but what they've done now is expanded this program so that it's sweeping across america and you have what basically is a massive data grab that's used by law enforcement for a variety of purposes, most of which are perfectly legitimate. but the concern here is that the government is sweeping up vast amounts of information that honestly has no relation to a crime
3:27 am
and it's one step closer to a big brother state where we have very little privacy remaining. >> edward, what do you say about that? all this data is being gathered and it's being housed somewhere. we don't know -- we suppose there's a pretty good padlock on it but we don't know who's got access to it. >> i can comment on that. the data collected is strictly the license plate number which is an issued number to whomever is driving the vehicle and it is required by law that the license plate be in public view public view. consequently we must remember that driving is not a right. it is a privilege that is extended by the states to those desirous of having access to license plates for their vehicles. it's a different monster. >> edward, how do you feel about tom's point where this is just another brick in the wall essentially?
3:28 am
now they know where your car was at a certain time. they know when you cross a bridge or a tunnel if you've got ez-pass. it's just another piece of data that the government is amassing about us. >> this is an orwellian fantasy. any first-year constitutional law student knows that in order to deny access to any information, there must be a reasonable expectation of privacy. there is none with a license plate in public view. that is the only, the only information that's taken with those readers. secondly, it also should be understood that there's an incrediblely highly, highly rated program that monitors, protects and controls that data. and there's checks and balances left and right from the office of inspections with d.e.a. to the department of justice. inspector general and also other inspection
3:29 am
functionaries. it's extremely well guarded. >> all right. i hope you're right. tom, the final word. >> from my perspective it isn't so much a question as to whether this is constitutional or not. there are limited constitutional protections in this context. from my perspective the question is whether it's good policy and whether at each step along the way we want to say is there really a need for this information before we automatically defer to the government and say sweep it all up. >> good debate. we thank you very much talking about these automatic license plates. thank you. >> coming up on this wednesday, we showed you the video yesterday. a pilot in trouble winds up ditching the plane in the pacific. but watch this there's a parachute on his plane and he can probably thank his life for the fact that he had that chute. we're going to talk to somebody about that incredible chute technology that saved his life coming up. meet the woman who got tired of waiting and married herself. what a story.

3:39 am
>> slows down the plane, first of all and slows down the descent coming down. >> if i was going to be a pilot i would want this on my airplane. is it only available -- we're going to start with animation. that's the cirrus airframe parachute system. what do you do with that? >> the handle, you grab it and pull it down with 45 pounds of force. >> is it above the pilot? >> right above. >> by the way if the plane still has energy and you pull the parachute, could the thing explode? >> no. it's not going to explode. you're generally waiting until the last moment. that's your last decision, your last option. and you pull it. >> after you pull it, we've got another animation that shows the next thing that happens. you mentioned this a minute ago. there's the rocket and parachute extraction. >> the parachute goes up through the fuselage of the plane and it starts to gradually inflate, as you
3:40 am
can see. it takes about nine seconds until you're under a complete canopy. then it's designed to let you down at about 1,700 feet per minute, which is about 20 miles per hour. it's like free falling from 13 feet. >> man, oh, man. in the history of this company how many people's lives have been saved by this really cool technology? >> i believe cirrus claims about 50 people. >> the technology is also available for other airplanes as well if you want to spend the money? >> right. it is not easy to put in a plane. you have to have a plane that's certified. >> the reason we got the video is because the coast guard was alerted. they were able to take all this in because they're there to save. once he hits the ground out comes a little boat. and he's able to get in it and float around for awhile. >> you can see how quickly the plane submerges many >> without the parachute that plane is not above water. >> you can ditch. it may be on top of water.
3:41 am
but the reality is it is a safe controlled impact on the water. this guy got out. you've got about 30 seconds before the plane submerged in this case. >> that guy was really lucky and we're lucky daniel that you stopped by to tell us thousand -- tell us how it works. >> you may be celebrating prices at the pump but this former they will c.e.o. says these low gas prices will have crippling consequences in america. he joins us next. >> this is one lucky dog. he went missing five months ago and found just as death was knocking at his doggy door. how a fire fighter and a google search saved his life. ♪

because they fear with the new innovations done with our extraction? >> i think the saudis have become quite competitive and they are trying to test not only the u.s. shale but they are also testing fellow opec members. when opec cuts back production to hold the price up guess who cuts back production? mainly the saudis. and the saudis are also, i think, entering a foreign an international relations dispute here where they don't mind hurting iran because they don't think the u.s. is on the right path with iran and they don't mind hurting russia because russia is so, you know, so expansionary at this point. so they're playing their own international relations strategy with the oil price. >> you said they are also fed up with venezuela and nigeria. look at some of these numbers in texas. on layoffs, one company is laying off 9,000 7000, 1,000. and your belief is it is only going to get worse as
3:48 am
the price at the pump makes us smile? >> i think that is a reality. i think we could achieve probably at about 50,000 now because there's a lot of layoffs that haven't been reported in the media. this could perhaps double based upon more rigs shutting down until we reach the bottom. and until we start to realize that the extra oil in the market is not going to sustain us for very long because we're not drilling. and it's only when we realize that we don't have a glut of oil and we start to bring people back to work that, to try to make up for shortfall. by that time the price will be back in the 80 90 range which i think will be later this year. >> and hopefully we'll be poised to get those jobs back, put people back and start using the shale and the fracking. we don't have time now but you say natural gas is the pivot you'd like to see. john hofmeister, thanks so

4:05 am
telling anybody. >> so when you look at the taliban five and you want to go through why they were there, which is important here because they're in qatar which means it's basically like a layover until afghanistan where they'll eventually go. the first was a taliban deputy minister of intelligence. he was wanted because he was on watch for mass killings and torture. okay? next guy senior military commander of the taliban, wanted because he engaged in hostilities against the united states. all these are high-risk to the united states. he murdered, according to them thousands of shiites in northern afghanistan. >> next one, we sent him to qatar now that we've got our deserter back, alleged deserter. as you can see right there he's a high risk and high intelligence. so we got good stuff out of him. but he's gone. >> and this guy he's high risk. he's trouble. he's a planner.
4:06 am
held over in gitmo. a low threat, by high intelligence value, means he organized and inspires, which possibly is worse. another is from qatar from haqqani, they're the worst of the worst. they're the ones that held bergdahl towards the end. listen, he must have a miserable existence over five years. obviously regretted what he did. who would think that he'd leave a base and go into captivity. he tried escape once. had to live in a box once. it was brutal. however, in the big picture, the president will pull this off. doesn't he have to check? in the other big picture if megyn kelly and our show and other people who are interested to find out what were the circumstances of this disappearance, find out he deserted, we talked to people who he served with, he deserted. the army is taking forever to come up with their report on the circumstances to his disappearance. however, the report, according to lieutenant colonel tony schaefer, is completed. the army says they're recommending he get court-martialed. however, the admiral kirby up
4:07 am
until this point is not confirming that. >> it's political. the reason there was this big prisoner swap is because the president wants to get out of afghanistan. cooperate do it cleanly with him still there. so that was the deal. that was the monty hall deal. let's make a deal on them. unfortunately, it looks like there is politics involved at the pentagon and we're going to talk to kirby. >> one of those guys had close ties to osama bin laden. i can't get beyond that. >> they're bad guys. have you seen the movie "american sniper"? it's absolutely terrific. it talks about chris kyle who was ultimately one of the greatest patriots who has served our nation portrayed by bradley cooper who ought to win an oscar. howard dean, who professionally says a lot of crazy stuff on tv says that the millions of people who see the movie are mainly very angry members of the tea party. he also said he never actually saw it. he was given the chance yesterday to apologize and he
4:08 am
did, kind of. listen. >> i apologize to the veterans. i haven't seen the movie and i think it was wrong. i make no apologies to all the thousands of right wing nut jobs who have been twittering me with nasty language. but i do apologize to the veterans. >> why do you think everyone who tweets you is a right wing nut job? >> or not a veteran. >> by the way, tea parties are patriotic. but if you look at the tea party, they're more about fiscal responsibility. they're not talking about war. in fact a lot of them are not being involved in the wars. why are you just taking the tea party and now you say they're responsible for bringing 200 plus million dollars to anybody's box office? >> why do you attack anyone or make anyone feel shame for seeing this film in this nation is just repugnant. but also the fact that you would deny anyone the ability to see the reentry that our military has and the complexity of those who come back and what their reentry is like back into the

hospital suggests coma patients can not only hear family and friends, but their voices actually help with waking and recovery as well. here to explain, neurosurgeon and author of "the proof of heaven," dr. alexander. he suffered a seven-day coma which he says led to a near death experience back in 2008. he joins us from charlottesville. do you remember in your week long co- marks do you remember your sisters talking to you? >> i do. it's actually something that i mentioned in the book "proof of heaven," but it's an extraordinary experience that i recall that was really kind of what brought me back to this world was the fact that my sisters were there day and night. there were other family members, too. but i specifically remember my sisters, the nurses allowed them to be there. initially they were sharing stories with me of our childhood that i did not remember. yet, i was very aware that the more they shared those stories with me, the more they started to trigger those memories.
4:26 am
and now seeing this paper, i can understand how it worked to help bring me back. >> do you think, going forward now that we know that people in comas actually do register identifying the voices of friends and family members does this mean going forward that we should see more talking to somebody in a coma because that's going to help them in some measure? >> yes, i believe so. the interesting thing about this story, about this paper is they showed scientifically how familiar voices, sharing familiar stories is so critical. family members, loved ones sharing stories of meaningful events that happened more than a year before the onset of coma were powerful at helping bring the patient back helping to heal. and i think this is ground breaking work that hopefully many clinicians who deal with these cases will take to start and start to acknowledge and use this kind of information.
4:27 am
>> sure. and of course, if somebody is in a coma, if you're at their bedside, the number one thing you want them to do is wake up and look at you and say well, hello. does this study suggest that this actually does prompt somebody in a coma to perhaps wake up a little earlier? >> it does. in fact, they showed very clearly that they had a more efficient and more rapid recovery of brain mechanisms and of interaction and participation in rehab by these familiar stories, from family members that were repeated over and over again to help bring the patient back. >> sure. you're a neurosurgeon and scientist as well. is there any scientific explanation of why that would work? >> well, i think the modern version of kind of understanding the relationship between consciousness mind and the brain indicates that it's best for us to really focus on consciousness
4:28 am
and mind at being what from a top down perspective runs the brain. and therefore, when we talk about the brain recovering from an injury, mind and consciousness can have a tremendous impact on helping to facilitate that process. that's what this study shows so clearly. >> so i guess the answer to the question is can they hear me? the answer is yes. >> the answer is very often yes. much more than we would have thought a few years ago. >> interesting stuff. dr. alexander, thank you very much. >> thank you very much for having me, steve. >> interesting stuff. coming up, the pentagon denies beau bergdahl will be charged with desertion. but the man who broke the story stick to go his guns. >> i stand by all of those facts, plus if you look at what admiral kirby said in the written statements from the pentagon, they don't deny the material findings of the report of what i said is in the report. >> all right. we're going to do just that when pentagon spokesman rear admiral john kirby joins us live from

about what he's going to do with this case. as a matter of fact, general millie is still going through the investigation itself. >> admiral, let me ask you this, upon his return here, susan rice originally said that he's a prisoner of war but he served the united states with honor and distinction. so many people are wondering if this delay in this investigation and these charges, that perhaps will end up coming are political. is there pressure on the pentagon to delay any charges on beau bergdahl? >> oh, my goodness no. that is the most ludicrous claim i've heard in the last few days. he has whatever authority to take whatever recommendation he wants. nobody is reaching out to him of the he is under no pressure whatsoever in any way. >> so you're saying no decision has been made. but at the same time tony schaefer has been told the lawyers have gotten the statement of charges last week that include the allegation of desertio the pentagon says in
4:36 am
the public interest people are interested in this and you should act transparently. how about a time line on how the pentagon is going to proceed with this? >> we want to be careful we don't put deadlines on general millie. >> admiral, all the facts are in. the technical, the operational the legal facts with all in. there is no reason the general can't make his decision now. >> we put deadlines on war. >> first of all, this is a big investigation. general millie wasn't in afghanistan at the fob where the ford operating base where bergdahl left. so he has to avail himself of all the information. he hasn't gotten completely through this investigation himself. we got to give him time here. i don't understand what the rush to judgment is here. this young soldier is still an active duty soldier in the united states army. he has been charged with no crime and the last time i looked, someone is innocent until proven guilty. >> that's a great point. but i think the rush is that a lot of people are outraged that five higher ups with the taliban
4:37 am
are in qatar and possibly enroute to afghanistan. they're outraged that some have gotten killed or wounded, military dog at the very least killed, and they want to see some answers to see the circumstances regarding what happened to beau bergdahl, how much was he captured or did he desert? so i think you're very interested in the welfare of those who sacrificed to search and were wounded in that way and you especially should understand that. >> i think you can understand that everybody in the pentagon well understands the service and sacrifice and the losses the flood and treasure ex preponderance of the evidenced in the last 13 years of years and how seriously we take that. it's also clear that among all the federal institutions, this one probably more than any other, is good at holding each other to account. we hold ourselves accountable. we're responsible institutions. and we pride ourselves on good leadership and good leadership in this case means taking our time and doing this right. >> general millie, will he go from his conclusion to the cameras or have to go to the white house and will the white house ultimately be responsible on whether we get this or not?
4:38 am
>> when we have something to say, you'll hear it probably from here. probably from the pentagon. most likely from me. we're going to hold ourselves at can be for this process -- accountable for this process. >> it's always great having you. thank you very much. you can tell we've got a lot of questions about beau bergdahl and when you're ready you'll let us know. >> i understand. i appreciate y'all giving me the chance to talk about it. it's 22 minutes before the top of the hour. ainsley has got some headlines and it's caught on camera. >> that's exactly right. the incredible moment a heroic councilman pulls his own gun to defend his colleagues from a shooter. >> get down, get down. everybody get down. >> that went right through the door. >> stay down. everybody get down. >> the gunman hitting two cops before being fatally shot by other officers. the two officers who were hit are now making full recoveries this morning.
4:39 am
the obama administration now telling immigration agents it is their job to ask illegals if they qualify for the president's immigration plan to avoid deportation. it will now be up to the agents to find and release immigrants who meet the new lenient rules. the plan is being compared to having the irs call taxpayers to say that they should have used certain deductions. and in sports this morning there is new theory about the timing of deflate gate as the nfl zeros in on a patriots locker room attendant taking 12 afc championship game balls into a bathroom for 90 seconds. one reporter finds out it would not take that long to deflate those balls. the new york daily news saying they did it in 40 seconds. and now just days before the super bowl the patriots' owner forced to address it at media day. >> i think by and large especially our quarterback -- i
4:40 am
think they think it's a bunch of hogwash. >> the nfl not expected to finish its investigation until after the big game this weekend. and the seahawks marshawn lynch wants to make one thing clear on super bowl media day. >> i'm just here so i don't get fined, so y'all could sit here and ask me all the questions you want to. i'm going to answer with the same answer so i'm here so i won't get fined. i'm here so i won't get fined. i'm here so i won't get fined. >> lynch was reportedly threatened with a $500,000 fine if he didn't show up for interviews on media day. so he did show up, as you can see, and repeated that same answer 29 times to 29 questions over four minutes and 51 seconds. those are your headlines. >> we're just here so we don't get fined. >> i was watching espn yesterday, they were debating, should he get fined? >> he stayed there. put a timer on his phone and there you go.
4:41 am
>> i saw my neighbor said this to me yesterday, he said, you know why boston wound up with so much snow? because of that low pressure over in new england. >> maria molina loves weather jokes. she'll laugh all day at them. >> i wonder how much longer i'm going to be listening to these jokes because unfortunatelier the forecast was missed for the biggest city in the u.s., or along parts of the east. that's why we're looking at so many jokes with this storm system. but take a look at some of the snow totals from new england. that's where the storm was historic. we saw more than 30 inches of snow out there. parts of massachusetts, like in auburn and hudson, 36 inches of snow. parts of long island also picking up heavy snow 30 inches across eastern long island. the storm system really coming to an end. lingering snow showers across parts of maine and also some very cold windchill temperatures there. they're in the teens, single digits and below zero. hint to go a clipper system
4:42 am
swinging through this system overall will bring light snow accumulations across the northeast thursday into friday. into maine that could be looking at easily over seven inches of snow from the storm system. winter storm watches have already been issued. let's head back inside. >> hang on to our shovels for a couple more days around these parts. thank you. coming up on this wednesday this man accused of killing a store clerk over a pack of cigarettes. what's worse, he's an illegal alien out on bond for a violent crime. why was he allowed back on the street thoughtfully crafted and intelligently designed. with available forward collision warning and new blind spot monitor and a 2014 top safety pick plus rating. cost of entry? a fortune. until now. hey sarah, new jetta? yup. can i check it out? maybe at halftime?

today convenience store clerks from across arizona will gather in their uniforms to say good-bye to one of their own. a man was gunned down over a pack of cigarettes.
4:46 am
he was only 21-years-old. but what makes the story more tragic is that the criminal that the cops say pulled the trigger is an illegal immigrant facing deportation who was released from jail on bond. arizona attorney general joins me now from phoenix. thank you for being with us. a sad day for the family of this victim here as his comrades will gather around him in uniform. how infuriating that this criminal was released on bond? >> elisabeth, it's very, very infuriating. you have here an individual that's alleged to have committed this crime that in cold bloodshot someone in the face and walked over the body to grab a pack of cigarettes. my thoughts are with the family. my thoughts are with those hard working arizonans who work hard every day and want the dignity of their lives. it truly is a tragedy especially when you have an alleged killer who has been in this country out on release for
4:47 am
more than two years after committing the crime, a felony in arizona, and has got not one, but two orders of protection against him by a former girlfriend for allegedly threatening to kill her. if someone like this can remain in this country even though he's here illegally and has been committed crimes, you have to ask yourself what is the obama administration doing? what are their policies? why are they allowing people like this to stay in our communities and be threats to our wives, families, children and husbands and fathers? >> so what needs to be done, because if your community is under attack by individuals who aren't just coming here to work they're coming here to as we see, kill, what's to be done? >> well, first and foremost, no one is more sympathetic reform to immigration reform. i'm a product immigration. but immigration reform has to start with securing our border and making sure that those that break the law are deported back to their countries. and what we've seen is a lack of will on the part of the obama administration.
4:48 am
so until we get the border secure, we can't move on to that next phase in immigration reform. >> that two-year time period while waiting for his hearing, seems like a long time. >> yes. >> tracked during that time? we know there is a huge gap there. what do you say to the feds? >> well, i would urge the obama administration to follow the law. it's one of the reasons why arizona joined with the majority of the states to sue the obama administration over his unconstitutional action and his obligation to take charge and take care of the united states and enforce the law of the united states. there are laws on the books and all we are asking is those laws be enforced and that people that enter this country illegally especially those that mean to do us harm, we need to make sure they're deported to their home countries and that the administration, the obama administration is not encouraging more illegal immigration by its unconstitutional actions. >> heart breaking day for the family of that clerk. we want to thank you for being with us attorney general for

5:01 am
we told you yesterday about how that man pictured right there in that pick up truck, former sergeant beau bergdahl, is going to be charged with desertion after he walked off post in 2009. that allegation came from tony schaefer who had it on good authority that apparently bergdahl's lawyers were given a statement of charges last week. he repeated that last night on the bill o'reilly program. >> i stand by all of those facts, plus if you look at what admiral kirby said in the written statements from the pentagon, they don't deny the material findings of the report or what i said is in the report. they're being very careful how they parce their words and there is reasons why. i do stand by the fact that my understanding is that bergdahl's lawyer has been given a statement of charges a charge sheet that says this is what to expect, that we're coming. >> so is that in fact true? rear admiral john kirby just
5:02 am
joined us. we wanted to know if he's parcing his words and he wants to know what the rush is. >> there have been no charges filed against sergeant bergdahl nor would we ever before charges are filed against a service member, give them a heads up hey, here is what's coming. that's just not the way the process works. we're not there yet. i don't understand what the rush so judgment is. this young still is still an active duty soldier in the united states army. he has been charged with no crime and the last time i looked, someone is innocent until proven guilty. >> right after that ran, tony schaefer e-mailed me and said with all due respect, the admiral is lying. he said they're now protecting the white house narrative. some are pushing behind the scenes for justice. it is a battle between the white house and the pentagon. >> we asked about pressure from the white house in terms of the general making a decision on this and he denied that as well. >> or maybe he just doesn't know. unless he's lying. the admiral might be out of the loop. >> what he said was a final
5:03 am
decision has not been made. tony schaefer was simply saying that beau bergdahl's lawyers were given the sheet with the allegation of desertion. given that last week. he did not deny that the lawyers were given that. >> but he did deny that they got the -- he says why would we ever give the charges to a lawyer prior to filing the charges? >> he did say that. >> he might not know if that was done. >> will he be charged with desertion is up for debate according to the two individuals we just showed you. but the broader question say he didn't desert are we still in the game of trading up for five taliban terrorists that are now back in qatar on their way delayed to afghanistan? one of them buddies with bin laden? >> there is a lot of people who served with him and want answers. since when do they say they don't have deadline. their lunch and breakfast is on a deadline. they're philosophers all of a sudden? >> while tony schaefer completely disagrees with what the admiral said maybe the
5:04 am
admiral doesn't know. coming up in a couple minutes, we'll talk to sergeant jordan vaughn a retired u.s. army served in the same company with mr. bergdahl. so that should be great because in fact one of the quotes to admiral kirby was, well we've talked to his guys who served with him and they said he walked off base. he deserted. >> meanwhile, ainsley earhart has been assembling other breaking news. >> this is breaking overnight. jordan is ready to give in to isis demands trading a terrorist, a prisoner, in exchange for a jordanian pilot who is being held hostage. overnight, the terror network posting a new video of the remaining japanese hostage holding a picture of that pilot, saying that they will both die within 24 hours if the militant is not released. the fate of the japanese hostage is now unknown. this as a disturbing new beheading video just leased by
5:05 am
isis makes a direct threat against president obama and america. an extremist saying quote, we will cut off your head in the white house and transform america into a muslim province. caught on camera, the incredible moment a heroic councilman from minnesota pulls out his own gun to defend his colleagues from the shooter. >> get down, get down. everybody get down. >> that went right through the door. >> everyone get down. >> stay down. >> the gunman hitting two cops before being fatally shot by other officers. those two officers who were hit they're making full recoveryies today. fresno firefighters pull off an heroic rescue and it is all caught on their helmet camera. >> where is she? how old is she?
5:06 am
three kids in the back! i got a kid! >> that is incredible. the crews were able to pull those three children out of that burning house. the kids were unconscious, but they were treated for smoke inhalation and they are doing just fine this morning. police are now investigating, saying that the kids all under the age of four, were home alone in that apartment when the electrical fire broke out. president obama and the first lady back in the white house this morning after a trip to india and saudi arabia. but michelle obama making headlines this morning after the new saudi king's entourage refused to shake her hand. you can see them nodding their heads as they're passing her by. the saudis reportedly are outraged that the first lady did not wear a head scarf. saudi arabia is the only country in the world where women are banned from driving cars, among other restrictions. >> i understand if you're from another country, it's up to you
5:07 am
whether you wear them or not. correct? so she chose not to. >> thanks for that. good question there for sure, brian. after tuesday's attack by islamic terrorists on a hotel in libya, the english executives at al-jazeera sent out an e-mail to their employees banning certain words. this is what they included. what not to say. not to use word extremist. do not use, avoid characterizing people. >> so on al-jazeera, they're not going to use extremist or terrorist. why? because he writes, one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter. we will not use these terms unless attributed to a source or a person. >> they also said not to use islamist. they said we'll continue to describe brutes and individuals by talking about their previous actions and aims to give viewers a context that they require rather than using it
5:08 am
simplistically. >> do these guidelines sound familiar? it sounds like guidelines that the administration puts out because that's what we get when we put out somebody involved in the muslim. dr. jasser is a scholar and president of the american muslim forum for democracy. i asked him if this is a way to avoid having war with a billion muslims? >> you have to use those terms because what it does is it exposes to the world that there is an extremist element of the islamist and this deeper below that iceberg is a political, sea of political ideology that we have to confront and they're running for cover. this is desperation, this attempt to control terms. >> yeah. and they say that the message is if you say islamic extremist, islamic extremist those when are not militant, will stand up for their religion and say i'm tired of you doing this in my name. but if you keep saying extremists, the muslim will say it's not on me. that's between the western world
5:09 am
and this extreme version of islam. >> such thoughtful perspective on this. >> we were told by the forecasters that it was going to be extreme weather here in new york city. we should have been waking up yesterday morning, there was supposed to be up to three feet of snow. >> we're glad about that. >> thank goodness we were spared. >> they got that wrong of the that's okay. they got it wrong for new york. it's bad up north of here right now. unfortunately, for the first time in the city's history, they shut down the subway. they closed the roads. if you were driving on the road a $300 fine. >> it was a ghost town. >> you couldn't use any of the parks. they closed them as well. john of the new york post says it's one thing to err on the side of safety. it's another thing to have the government continue to meddle in our lives. he says the big storm where they told everybody to stay in their
5:10 am
house, another example of the nanny state. listen. >> this is a self-governing society. if you want to go outside when it's snowy and slippery, that's fine. mayor de blasio of new york city spent a minute warning people not to go outside to go to the corner store to buy some eggs because they might slip and fall. we're his boss. he is not our boss. i don't need to hear from my mayor that i'm not supposed to go outside when it's snowing. >> i agree with that. the fact that you're going to get a ticket. can you imagine getting a ticket because you want to pick up milk? can i judge by now? i think we're past curfew. i don't know. >> litigious society now. >> even if there was three feet of snow, it was offensive being told you can't walk. i can understand shutting down some -- >> i went running. >> you did yesterday. into the park she went. >> the storm, we're told, according to i think it was in the "new york times" today, the storm in total throughout the northeast cost $1.25 billion.
5:11 am
here in new york city, the "new york times" did an estimation. the average person in new york city makes $406 a day. so they extrapolated the number of people who didn't show up. new york city lost in wages $160 million in money. those workers will never get back. >> better to be safe than sorry. we asked you what you thought. one said i think the decision to err on the side of caution was the better of bad choices. >> for the first time in almost 200 years, over 100 years, no subways. melissa writes, yet in your city, you're told what size soda drinks you can buy what foods you should be served in schools, your mayor doesn't think you're a very intelligent group of people. neither did the previous one. >> also there was a power struggle. it was governor cuomo and he turned off the subways and got de blasio showing up in his slicker with the logo on it. it looked like they were competing to see who could be the hero of the storm and who could close down the most. >> these two democrats don't
5:12 am
like each other. they're doing so well. 11 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, despite pressure to make decision, the pentagon doubled down, saying beau bergdahl is not facing desertion charges. >> i don't know how they could be giving charges when he hasn't been charged with a crime yet. >> tell that to his fellow troops who risked their lives searching for him. one of those men join us nex hope this guy has insurance. the test drive that went really really really wrong. watch. b-vitamins... and vitamin d... in chocolatey flavors. $2 off at
5:13 am
5:14 am
5:15 am
5:16 am
i don't know how he could be given charges when you hasn't been charged with a crime yet. >> but tell that to beau bergdahl's fellow troops who were searching for him. the pentagon doubled down as you just heard saying beau bergdahl won't face desertion charges or don't know yet. sergeant jordan vaughn served in the same company as bergdahl and participated in over 50 search missions to find him. sergeant now retired, thank you for joining us. how do you feel about the fact that this investigation is still going on? >> it really seems like they're dragging their feet. they've had plenty of time five years to conduct this
5:17 am
investigation. just been in an super view with bergdahl. it's very frustrating. >> what happened? for people just catching up to this story now. >> bergdahl flipped out of o.p. mess in 2009. we heard lvi, low level voice intercept traffic, which intercepts local radio and traffic, just locals communicating there, that there was an american out in the night and he was looking for the taliban. he was not seeking to rejoin his comrades. and then he turns up in taliban control shortly afterwards. long search, we diverted resources. we lost multiple good men. my squad leader was one of them. >> he got killed? your squad leader got killed? >> my quad leader was killed in afghanistan. >> what do you say to people who say there is no proof of that? >> i don't know what to say to them. it angers me beyond words. when they say wait until the report comes out to try and
5:18 am
give -- we were there. it's kind of like witnessing a murder and then you're one of the witnesses and they say well, wait 'til the trial. no, i saw him kill the guy. i don't need to wait for the trial. i know what happened. >> the admiral just told us, hey, what's the rush? the investigation takes time. we're going through it. what's your reaction to that? >> that does sound like the administration narrative doesn't it? he served with honor and distinction, according to them. so he's saying he's an active duty soldier and he's innocent until proven guilty, that sounds great. but we did lose actual soldiers, real soldiers who were quality searching for this waste of oxygen. >> mark o'ens first book chronicles searches. that means to go find him because they thought they had him. and he talked about how their commanding officer got shot. he had to take disability and a military dog got killed. in the big picture, he's part of
5:19 am
a small percentage that signed up to put the uniform on of the he was captured and i believe tortured for 5 1/2 years. what would you like to see happen? >> honestly, i want to see a guilty conviction for desertion. i know he did time, per se with the taliban. the character of that time has yet to be established whether that was amicable or not. so i really want to see a dishonorable discharge. i want to see benefits revoked and i would feel vindicated if that happened. >> unfortunately, we're never going to get the five taliban back. who will probably be back in the fight that you guys were winning before you went out. thanks so much for joining us. i appreciate the add federal who wants to put together -- admiral who wants to put together the investigation. sergeant vaughn, thanks so much. >> no problem. thank you. coming up straight ahead, the video was frightening. you got a family trying to get out of harm's way driving head first into a sink hole?

access. if you travel a lot and you're a road warrior you know about this and willing to spend that money because the cots we showed at laguardia that you're sleeping on really don't feel quite as good as getting home. this really helps you get there. >> why? >> because if you look at this, this is the raw data that airport and airline employees look at and it shows the flight alternatives that are going on in this particular market. so we're looking at boston to chicago today. >> which is all airlines. >> all airlines. if you see all the numbers to the right that are teeny tiny the more you see the larger the number, the more seats there are in that category of fares. >> so maybe worth cash to purchase that if you travel a bunch. what about flight board? >> this is great. you download this app and we'll put in boston. and right now just populated, canceled canceled, canceled. so for right now, it shows you this is in real time, which flights outbound are canceled. and then you scroll through and say, wait a second, there is a flight to dallas if that's where you need to go out of boston. it's on schedule. let's call or walk up to the
5:27 am
airline and say, hey, how about this flight out of gate 3 is and boom, you may be on it. >> flight track pro. >> i love this app because this is what i always keep my flights in so you can see the status. so for example flight today new york to los angeles, it will keep the data of my flight. it's going to show me on the right, it's scheduled out at 4:30 today. i put that in military time, going out of the gate. what if that goes south? well, i click a button. top right, look at that. find alternative flights. simply click that and now up on that it will populate every single flight alternative that i can use in that very moment as well. >> wow. >> i'll leave with you this one. it's so geeky and fantastic. especially your kids will love this. this is live atc. so what you can do is no matter what airport you're at, you can actually tune in live to the air traffic control center at the airport. why would you want that?

but the man was released from ice custody two years ago on a $10,000 bond after a burglary charge. arizona attorney general spoke earlier on "fox & friends" about this case. >> if someone like this can remain in this country even though he's here illegally and has committed crimes, you have to ask yourself what is the obama administration doing? what are their policies? why are they allowing people like this to stay in our communities? >> he was also issued two harassment injunctions while on bail. this video is pretty frightening. a family trying to get away from a water main break in their house drive head first into this sink hole. it happened as they were backing out of their driveway. that sinkhole was hidden under the water. the family managing to escape before the car was nearly submergeed. >> we were going like this. i thought the car was going to go deep down.

the two of you together are here to talk about this because a lot of the time it's cast as a female issue, a woman's issue. but it's really a family issue and a couple's issue. this book is like a girlfriend's guide to going through this. why was this important to you? what was your story? >> that means a lot to me because i wanted it to be fun, but also very serious and i was approaching 40. i was covering the war in iraq. i was going through this horrible divorce. i came back. my house had flooded because a pipe burst upstairs. i lost everything. and i remember sitting on my stoop thinking, oh my god. this is it. i don't have a family. i don't have children. and thank goodness i met this wonderful man after a period of time and he was open to going through fertility. i thought -- he even said to me, you have to write a book because constantly, i was looking for things to make me feel better. >> she was worried that when she was on her death bed, there would be nothing there but an empty whiskey bottle. >> congratulations. >> i have twins.

>> is this a confession? >> what we can say about recreational drugs. >> i confessed to the mormon tabernacle choir. >> you want to get into that? >> not really. >> what's your edge ultimately to families struggling? i think any woman who walked down this road says this isn't fair. it seems so hard. >> you're so right. so from the youngest gals to sort of that career oriented woman, like me, i felt like i had to sacrifice family and love and children in order to make it in this business. and now there is things you can do, like freezing your eggs. you see how popular that is and companies are getting on board and paying for it because they want women to be happy. that takes the pressure offment 'cause i felt like i hit 30, i had this great job at cnn and now i needed to get a husband and children and then i would be able to have it all. i made some really bad decisions and then fast forward a decade, there i was thinking, oh, oh,
5:41 am
can i still do it? i was lucky to be able to do fertility and i was able to have children. not everybody is that blessed. so this is to empower women of all ages from the youngest to that sort of middle age, all the way to my geriatric age, which is what i was referred to. it was your idea to do it, right? >> the book? >> let's have a doover on that. >> i told her to write down your experiences. it started off as kind of like a personal narrative and then the book company and the agent got involved and said, why don't you turn this into really a scientific book that's got a personal side to it? we recruited the head of the nyu fertility business. >> he's the best in the business. >> he jumped right on board and hammered this thing out and here it is. >> check it u. called "the whole

5:45 am
2.03 a gallon sounds like a pretty good deal if you remember what gas used to cost us just last year. but here is what you might not know.
5:46 am
that low cost apparently costing jobs. earlier we spoke to the former ceo of shell oil who had this warning. >> when the oil industry begins to shut down cost spending, they're very good at it. and we know how to close the door on spending money. but that results in the layoffs of tens of thousands of people. i estimate for every rig that shuts down and we've shut down about 500 rigs already since october, about 100 jobs disappear. not just from the rig, but from the factories that produce the materials, that supply the rigs. >> bet you didn't think about that. here with reaction from our sister network fox business' maria bartiromo. we love the fact that gas is not costing us much. but then at the same time somebody is losing a job. >> it absolute israeli right. and we've already seen the beginning of the negative implications of the decline of the price of oil. at some point, and i'm not sure if that price is 45 40, 50. i don't really know the breaking point in terms of the price.
5:47 am
but at some point the price becomes uneconomical for some of these shale companies to continue doing their business at the prices that they were. that's why you're seeing rig cannulations and a string of oil companies announce job cuts. we're seeing the beginnings of this. if this continues, we are going to see further job cuts to an industry that truly has been the growth story of america the shale revolution. >> we got a couple of graphics we're going to show people. good news and bad news. crude oil has dropped 60% since june down to 45 1/2 per barrel. here is the bad news texas oil layoffs, 9,000, baker hughes, 7,000. halliburton, 1,000. these are real people's lives impacted by the low cost of gas. >> these are jobs that are high paying. these jobs require certain skill sets and they've been trained to do these long-term projects within the energy business. look, if you look at the dallas federal reserve research, they will say all of the jobs created since 2007 came from texas.
5:48 am
they were energy related. now the dallas federal reserve is out with its new annual report and they are saying that yes, we will see job losses as a result of this weakness. they're not predicting recession. they think texas will continue to grow. however, you are seeing a real dent in what was one of the bright spots in american jobs. >> the other side of it is it's bright for awful us because now we're paying a fraction of what we were just a year ago. >> it's true. but what are we doing with that money? so far we have not seen that money filter through the economy. lot of people were saying this is a big positive because at some point you have that extra money in your pocket, you spend it in the retail sector and as a result, it's a positive cycle. we had retail sales down december by nine tenths of a percent. at some point it catches up, but it hasn't yet. >> you know what people are buying? iphones. you'll talk about that this weekend. >> we're going to talk about a the next ten minutes on the "fox business" network on the opening bell and looking at yahoo. they're selling their stake that they held in ali baba.

they're the best of the best. dogs trained to serve with the navy seals. and now you can learn how to apply the same precision style training techniques. joining us is a form member of the navy seals, team three and the author of this new book "team dog, how to train your dog the navy seal way." what do we need to know and welcome back? >> thank you for having me. the big thing is to remember you can't explain anything to a dog. a lot of people make the mistake of assuming that their dog knows what they want them to do. they know what they want but the dog has no idea.
5:54 am
so in this instance, it's important to remember that you can't explain anything and that you have to use body language and reinforcement to get the point across. >> so going from battlefield command and control, how do you apply that to backyard with a dog at home? starts with leadership, you say? >> it absolutely does. if you think about how you interact with people, how you interact with your bosses, if you want somebody to take you seriously, you act a certain way, you carry yourself a certain way. dogs are masters at reading body language. you need to apply those same principles. a lot of people treat their dogs like small children or they get on the ground and act a little crazy with them, act goofy. if you act like a clown with your dog your dog is going to think you're a clown. >> because he won't respect you? >> absolutely. there is a time and a place for that, but it's after you've established the higher arcky. >> so the dog is watching you. so you as the master need to master nonverbal communication. in what way? >> so the biggest thing is just to, if you think about how you
5:55 am
can exude leadership with your body. an example is to go -- so if you just watch the way i carry myself and kind of get his attention in terms of moving him around. >> and you're showing you're in command? >> absolutely. >> you're not loud with him. >> no. >> nonverbal. >> emotional stability is very powerful in the animal world. if you watch any animals that are in an alpha role or in a leadership type position they're not flamboyant. they're not emotionally charged. they're very confident, calm. they carry themselves very, very much that way. >> what's in it -- what is the reward or punishment for a job well done? >> the reward, what i like to use is a clicker, which essentially is like taking a photograph of what the desired behavior is. so i use a clicker to mark that behavior. and then i use just these little pill pockets treats. >> so he does something you want you'll click and then give him something? >> yes. >> so he associates that sound
5:56 am
with -- that's essentially your good dog. >> and he wants the sound? >> that's the communication, whatever it is that you're doing is what i use. >> all breeds? >> every breed. the important thing about this book is whether you're training dogs to go to the battlefield or training your lab to stay off the couch, the principles are the exact same. >> mike and tiggo. >> thank you. >> warrior dog foundation is your main cause. thank you for joining us. >> thank you . .
