jon: see you pack here in an hour. "outnumbered" starts right now. >> this is a fox news alert. a treasure trove of brand new documents belonging to usama bin laden released this morning. they were found the night the navy seals raided his compound in pakistan killing the terror leader. hello, everyone. welcome to "outnumbered." i'm an diao tantaros. here with us today, sandra smith, kimberly guilfoyle, rachel campos duffy and today's #oneluckyguy, the perfect one today, mike baker, former cia covert operations officer and president and cofounder of the private intelligence and security firm diligence llc.
9:01 am
mike baker is outnumbered. >> that is all the time we got. >> we are dying to hear what you think about these bin laden documents that everyone has been pouring over. so let's get right -- >> fascinating day. >> really fascinating. now to those documents uncovered at usama bin laden's compound. the information released approximately four years after the 2011 raid that ended with the terror leader's death. here he is in the compound. those documents shedding new light on bin laden's life and how he remained obsessed with attacking americans until the very end. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge joins us with the details. >> thank you, andrea. we're going document by document here at fox and so far they paint a picture of bin laden issuing orders from his compound in pakistan, micromanage together smallest detail and kind of wearing many managerial hats. this document in fact is application to become a suicide bomber, asking the applicant for their history their personal
9:02 am
information, and even a emergency contact in the event that at the do become a martyr. another document reviewed by fox shows how paranoid the al qaeda leader had become after more than a decade on the run. and was a $25 million bounty on his head. one of his wives was coming from iran to pakistan for a visit. he ordered that she leave all other personal belongs behind, quote everything a needle might possibly penetrate. some have chips developed for eavesdropping, so small they could be easily hidden inside of a syringe. bin laden writes about the arab spring in 2012. on one hand celebrates the overthrow of dictators like the tunisian leader ben ali there is anxious tone how will al qaeda remain relevant in this changing landscape. the documents recovered from the compound four years ago are being released now because, legislation mandated their declassification. the former head of the defense
9:03 am
intelligence agency mike flynn recently told fox's bret baier millions of documents were recovered in abottabad and there was a conscious decision not to exploit them and review them, claiming he was told basically to stop. what is more important, flynn makes assessment that the documents showed operational connections between bin laden and the affiliates that were operating in north africa, east africa and yemen, not that he was so isolated that he had lost control of the network. andrea. >> catherine, really interesting stuff, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. >> mike what jumps out at you the most reading these documents? >> first of all you have to think about what the time frame is. it has been going on four years since the raid on bin laden and some of this material he was writing ahead of the anniversary of 9/11 the 10-year anniversary of 9/11. so you have to put it in context there with now what's happening because, some people have been
9:04 am
amazingly quick. these things were just released right? some people are already out there, shows he doesn't agree with what the islamic state is doing. well you're not, putting all of the time frame into context. there is no way he could have imagined what would have happened four years on from where he was writing at that point in time but i think part of what you're see something also, just the musings of an individual who, while not completely isolated was disconnected to some degree from the operational data day. so i think, in part, not to play, you know armchair school gift but i think he was looking for ways to be relevant in a sense. i do like, i think my favorite comment so far out of what we've seen, those iranians they can't be trusted. if bin laden knows that, then, you would like to think that our own administration would have a handle on it. >> before we open up to the
9:05 am
couch to ask for questions of you i want to go back to something what he said. he encouraged al qaeda caliphate this is the biggest foal of isis instead focus on killing americans, bomb embassies. put the caliphate on hold he said. do you think that led to the rice of isis? they said you know what? we have different priorities. caliphate is the main goal. bin laden wants us to kill americans. we want to prioritize here. do you think that co-led to formation that we're seeing now? >> i think what led to the what we're seeing now is formation created by a vacuum in iraq. he was all about the caliphate. you can argue in terms of about how he felt among violence among the sects and shiite fighting sunni. >> did not like it. >> he was arguing against it often but at the same time would a, would this now territorial physical manifestation after caliphate
9:06 am
excite him? of course it would. he would be looking for ways to capitalize on it from his perspective. there were always leadership battles within al qaeda. there were always efforts to figure out who was going to succeed him. at the end of the day they're all jonesing for the caliphate. >> what is always interesting to me what stuck out to me i'm following the money trail when it comes to the terrorist groups. when it comes to al qaeda, appears some of memos written to bin laden, they were strapped for cash. one memo they clearly wrote there is a financial problem, it was written. usama bin laden stressed that he was concerned about the effect of climate change on the muslim world, talking about let's not deplete the precious groundwater. talking about ways to store wheat because he was fretting about food security was often what he was writing about. >> yeah. >> the finances behind al qaeda were obviously a huge concern for him? >> yeah. that is, you know, they have solved that problem in part by having physical territory, right? that gives them revenues whether through extortion,
9:07 am
criminal activity. oil and gas revenues we've been hearing about. you also have to look in terms of why release this now? i don't want to sound skeptical. yes i do. but, they have had this information for a long time. the first thing you do when you sweep up all this material you immediately look for actionable leads, right? you immediately look for, oh, that is the compound in abottabad calling. >> is that mrs. breaker? >> no otherwise would i take the call even on national tv. i apologize. what you do you sweep up all the intel and immediately look for actionable leads and anything that is parishable and you prioritize and use that 3 1/2 years on we're seeing some of this material. i can't help but think the reason this is happening the administration needs some good news. they're doing deflection which they have done many times in the past. >> to remind the american public of biggest --
9:08 am
>> taking a beating on everything else going on in the middle east strategy. look at this, did you see the bin laden documents? >> now we're in a worse position than we were before. despite the gains we had made we let it go, slip through our hands because this administration reluctant to have a real plan and focus on terror in the middle east. you've seen isis step into what you described as a vacuum in iraq and it is dispersed. it really spread and metastasized. >> absolutely. >> i think one of the interesting things came out of this, who knew terrorists actually love some of their wives? i thought interesting love letters to -- one of them i found it really interesting. what do the documents tell you about how we should be adjusting our strategy? i think that is the bottom line question a lot of americans have, or any -- >> we can look at personalty issues and psychology of bin laden sitting in there and hopefully there is nothing actionable in the material we're getting right now. it has all been scrubbed screen
9:09 am
and any leads were used and that's a good thing. what we need in terms of strategy, we need to win. we need to find a strategy. once we have the strategy we need to act it out and we're not doing that right now. >> we have a lot of resources. the men i talk to in the intelligence community and people in your organization they have a lot of tools available to them. it is not just about putting ground troops. people jump to that as okay, this is the ultimate extreme but there are many things we can do with covert operations and special forces. >> absolutely. and again, you have to, you know you don't want to be that person that has a dog in the hunt and never points out the good thing that the other side is doing. abu sayyaf raid. that is a good thing. thousands of airstrikes we're doing. that is a good thing the administration is conducting. but the at end of day we'll not take back the territory and hold it and create some order out of this chaos without people on the ground. and we're not getting the iraqi army to do that. >> mike, let me ask you about in
9:10 am
these documents as well, bin laden writes about drones and how much he disliked drones. he writes, they are concerning and exhausting us. this guy was a meticulous editor that really mused about all sorts of things. we're finding out. but drones specifically besides the rise of technology, he talks about drones. what does that tell you about our fight going forward? that seems to be one of the areas this administration is pretty comfortable with? >> again, giving credit where it should be, the obama administration, ramped up the drone campaign much to the displeasure of the far left. it has been very successful. it is a very effective tool. as kimberly pointed out, you have to use all the tools. this is not one thing or the other. this is not we'll do air campaign and we'll rule out everything else. you have to use all the resources in your kit bag. the drone program has been extremely effective. >> keep it up. >> keep it up. you have to keep moving. you see the concern that it raises. he is absolutely right how we lost a lot of our cadre, a lot
9:11 am
of our leaders of course he has. keeps them on the back foot. the more you keep them guessing the more -- >> the operation in and of itself, it works really well when you parrot with intelligence, with real time intelligence coming from actually having people on the ground so it can be more surgical and precise. >> absolutely. you're counting on what? local military or iraqi military. liaison partners saudis jordan anies. we don't have our personnel on the ground directing airstrikes. we're trying but not most efficient manner. at end of the day we need to do a lot more of the abu sayyaf raids as you talked about. >> not the distraction of the day, this is what people are talking about, that is the ultimate debate we're debating at home we'll go back to. hillary clinton finally taking reporters questions yesterday breaking what is nearly a month-long media silence. one columnist said it fails to address what he calls her

department. >> one columnist said the rare news conference fails to address what he calls, hillary's credibility gap. the "national journal"'s ron fournier writing quote, i don't believe hillary rodham clinton says she has no control over the release of state department emails. i don't believe her because a person's actions are more revealing than words. i don't believe her because i covered clintons since the 1980s and know how dedicated they are to telling the truth slowly. andrea clintons, if their lips are moving they're not on truth serum like the song, write. >> if your lips are moving you're lying? okay. credibility gap, not only did she not address it, she made it worse. that was not a press conference. if i were advising her i would say you know what? never talk to the media again. she really doesn't have to. she has this high approval rating among democrats i'm being serious. i would tell her no press conferences for you. do not take anymore questions because she is terrible at it. kimberly she lied i don't know how many times in that press
9:18 am
conference yesterday, multiple times. she has control over her emails. she deleted thousands of them. she could have turned over the server. now a war between the obama administration and clinton camp which i do not think is a place she wants to be. >> i would have agreed with you before, why try to fix something that is not broken? she is still polling well although she has been in hiding and not talking to reporters but i think the buildup to the actual statements she finally made to the press, put so much weight on her answers there was no possible way she was going to say anything right yesterday. i think that is the problem. everybody is putting so much weight on anything she is finally going to say there will be no doing right here. by the way, when he writes, i don't believe her because a person's actions are more revealing than their words, he went on to say, she kept her government email on secret server only under pressure from congress returned less than half of them to the state department she deleted rest. she considers them hers. backup to everything he is saying so easy to read and makes so much sense.
9:19 am
>> yeah. mike what do you think about this? she knew what she was doing. she knows they don't have the good ones right? telling them to release them, et cetera. she did a deliberate act consciously knowing that she was destroying evidence potentially emails she should have given to the american people who were paying her salary. >> right. god bless people can watch her say she is so frustrated about how slow it is getting these emails. i just want this to get them released. i'm so mad about this whole thing. god bless people that can watch that and still pull the lever and vote for her in 2016. >> right. >> i don't understand it. we see this, we're able to suspend disbelief. like in in 2008, when we thought all good getting somebody in the office that has no managerial experience or experience running anything. it ised about enough so have form over substance. now we're getting, clinton and drumbeat look all the substance. she will be great. we know from all these years

what do they do? they obfuscate. this is what they do. i don't have a lot of hope. i'm very cynical when it comes to the political process in this country. unless we get term limits and campaign finance reform we'll never ever get really top-notch candidates. we'll not get big brave decisions because those two issues campaign finance and term limits are key. >> they're mishandling her. if you're going to address these questions about the email they should have had her sit down with a friendly reporter. there are plenty of them. george stephanopoulos hello, and answer those questions about email rachel. instead they did silence. and put her out there to get random questions. now she will go into hiding even more. >> she might. you talked about where she lied. one point she told the truth. of course i passed on these emails from sid blumenthal because he is my friend. she is confirming this sort of crony capitalist, i scratch your back, you scratch mine, the clintons are kind of famous for. i think the concern here is that
9:21 am
in the end she is going to have to rally the same coalition, we talk a little bit about this sandra, this morning on morning bell. she will have to rally the same coalition of young people, of minorities that obama had. and she is going to the left on economic issues, because that is what she needs to do in order to counter some of the scandal that she has. but the fact is, the obama policies have not worked for minorities or for women. minority, you know hispanic homeownership is down. poverty rates are higher for minorities. i think going into that agenda is actually into the going to help they were because the results have not been there for the obama administration. >> that was a good plug for "morning bell," by the way. well-done. >> a lot of friends on this couch. revealing new poll what republicans think of their field of 2016 candidates and why their answers could be bad news for democrats including hillary. one possible republican candidate taking on conventional wisdom that says a college dropout can't make it to the

weapons directly to them because they can't get it. these are people who fought before. it is their land. they want to take back ramadi. he is from ramadi. they're on the hill asking members of the congress please get your people to send them to us. we're not getting -- we have people that want to it too. the thing is, there is a basket of options. we just can't go with the shia. we can give to the kurds. they want to fight. tribal leaders want to fight. why are we doing this, only iranian-backed -- >> there is fairly well-worn path of iraqi militia leaders and others back and forth to washington asking for arms, first of all. so this is a constant on their part. we actually worked with the current iraqi government to convince them not to bring in the shiite militias. that was our call. we told them not to do that which contributed to the fall of ramadi in a sense because we delayed that now we're backing off. we talked to them. prime minister has good enough control over the fighting units and militias that they're going with it.
9:44 am
now all of sudden it is okay with us. we don't want to kid ourselves. we have no leverage out there. we have handful of trainers. it is dog's bodywork. but doing their best to bring up iraqi military we've been training and as seg with over decade. >> that is the jv team. >> my point being the strategy that somehow we're now going to get the iraqi military capable of doing this? the fact that we're going to convince the iranians to do what we like them to do? we don't have control over what the iranians are doing over there. we don't have control over militias or iraqi military are doing. we're losing this thing, very, have he quickly. >> they're not trying to defeat them. >> right. >> exactly. >> we're running a banner that says the white house sees the current mission there as success. have the pc police finally gone too far? boy scouts are banning size of waterer guns and limiting water balloons. really? boy scouts?

someone is not quote, kind. the change not sitting well with many commentators on the scouting magazine blog. what a load of politically correct [bleep] one said. mike, if we keep emasculating our boys and not letting boys be boys, you have three of them yourself how will we raise next generation of hardcore cia operatives and navy seals? >> first of all that was very nice unloaded question. >> you obviously know how i feel about this. >> we're on the same sheet of music. yeah, my three boys, scooter slug-fo and mugcy, one is turning eight. scooter is turning eight this weekend. thing we're doing, having all the friends over. dividing two teams. giving them massive buckets of water balloons. we'll let them loose. that is what you do. people will say that sounds sexist. that is what boys do, right?
9:51 am
you pick up a stick. well you don't want to give a weapon, play weapon. i could take away all the nerf guns and all the play weapons that they have right now. they will go out in the backyard, find a stick and it's a gun. so i'm sorry if that upsets some people. i'm not stopping that. in effect the boy scouts are bowing to this saying well we -- it is again, emasculation concept. >> feminization of boys. >> exactly. >> someone save the super-soakers to the moms of boys on other side of the couch. >> they're allowing water balloons but only water balloons size of ping-pong balls? is that possible. >> bigger they are the easier it is. >> you came to my house, so offended you wouldn't know where to start. it is full blast there at all times. gigantic like, nerf guns bigger than me. we have all kinds of things. >> kids will spend all day long playing war.
9:52 am
whole concept god forbid we offend anybody. god forbid we don't all get trophies. everybody has to get participation medal. it is nonsense. you know what we're doing? every generation, we, of course we want things to be easier for our kids. of course we want to be inclusive. >> woosieification. >> thank you. that was what i was -- >> can i speak to the single women? i do think culture matters. i think what we're seeing is, i notice a lot of single women frustrated with, what i call basement boys. guys who play games, video fame, not the kind of tough -- >> looking over at me. they're not in my world, honey. i tell you. >> would you say it that there is an effect on that in the long term? we will end up raising woosiefied boys if we keep putting these kind of parameters. >> there are a lot of thumb sucking beta wearing pajama boys. that is bigger problem. i don't think we have time to address that we'll doing it during overtime. there is a tease.

>> girl if you need to talk to your man and want him to listen wait until 8 o'clock p.m. it is not scientific? women tend to broach serious subjects in the morning and men are likely more to pay attention after dinner. and men enjoy meaningful conversation while driving. the worst time to talk to your man while he is playing video games. >> and kimberly? >> i love a real real man. 8:15 is the time to broach him with something. >> we have to get them in the right mood. and let them eat something and i always carry granola bars with
