ardit parizi was charged for allegedly hacking a retail company's computer system giving him access to home, addresses and social security numbers of mo more than a thousand military personnel and government employees. that information was posted on an isis kill list online. he is expected to be extradited to virginia for arraignment. if convicted, he faces up to 35 years in prison. threatening a boycott. republicans donald trump and ben carson say they're going to skip the upcoming presidential debate if cnbc doesn't change the format. garrett is live in washington, d.c. to tell us more about their demands. >> donald trump says he's not worried about himself. he can stand on stage for ten hours if he needs to. it's the folks watching at home that he's worried about. yesterday, cnbc sent a memo to
all the republican campaigns outlining its debate plans which is set to last more than two hours, plus another 16 minutes in commercials and it does not include opening and closing statements. trump and ben carson, the gop front runners aren't happy with the format and sends a letter to cnbc that reads in part neither mr. trump or dr. carson will participate in your debate if it's longer than 120 minutes including commercials and does not include opening and closing statements. last night, trump told greta van sustron cnbc's format is all about the money. >> they want to make this an extra hour. and i think it's unfair to the viewers because it's too much. it's too much to watch and they're doing it because they want to make more money. >> carly fiorina, who is the other leading political outsider in the gop race says prepared statements are for politicians. >> i think apparently they're worried about answering questions for three hours. for heaven sakes, we have ten candidates on the stage.
i don't think three hours is a long time. i think we ought to stand and answer as many questions as we can. >> for its part, cnbc says it may be willing to make changes to the debate's format and that debate is scheduled for october 28th. heather. >> garrett, thank you. we'll see what happens. in the meantime, it is time to take a look at who is talking. fox news contributor karl rove bringing back his whiteboard. you've seen that before. and he's weighing in on who will be the next person to drop out of the presidential race. >> i'd break the field into two groups. there are candidates who got into this race to make a point. i'd say graham, gilmore and santorum. i think all of them we'll find are in a place where they're out of cash, out of gas and going nowhere. then we have the ones who want to be president who are down there below 5%. while it's still early, my sense is of those christie, kasich,
paul, my suspicion is they're going to be able to hang on for some period of time and may be players still by the time we get around to voting. but my sense is jindal and pataki, unless they show some big umph in the next couple of weeks -- >> there's only one umph -- >> a previously unknown e-mail address is discovered just one day before the top hillary clinton aide is set to appear before the benghazi group this morning. a conservative group found the e-mail. this comes months after the state department admitted personal account were used for government business. while clinton was secretary of state, but they were unable to search for those personal accounts to hand over for official letters. fox news has learned the fbi probe into clinton's e-mails is focusing on gross negligence and the safekeeping of national defense information. >> well, the president once
vowed to end the longest war in american history. but as the taliban gained strength in afghanistan, he's making a major policy change. although the afghan combat mission is officially over, the u.s. will keep, in fact, nearly 10,000 troops in the country throughout most 06 next year. kevin has the latest. kevin. >> reporte >> while america's combat mission in afghanistan may be over, our commitment to afghanistan and its people endures. >> a commitment that is now endured for 14 years and will continue. the u.s. will slow its withdrawal from afghanistan, opting instead to have troops by the thousands remain beyond next year. the president announced that 5500 american troops would remain in afghanistan into 2017. president calling it a modest but meaningful extension of our presence. but for much of 2016, around 9,800 american troops will serve throughout the country in noncombat roll. still, it's a dramatic shift for
a white house that wanted to leave around a thousand troops in and around kabul by the end of the administration. >> this was a disaster waiting to happen. i think what the president is doing now is enough to contain the damage. >> the decision underscores the difficulty the commander in chief has had in achieving one of the central promises of his presidency, ending the longest war in american history. already stung by the threat of isis and the reemergence of al qaeda, it's the taliban now creating the most trouble in afghanistan. but experts say in a fog of war, especially one more than a decade along, decisions have consequences, which is why many believe that despite calls from the left to leave the region wholesale, the president in this case made the right move. >> i've gotten to the point where anytime the president makes a national security decision that's not a disaster, i'm grateful for it. but i think this is not a strategy to win in afghanistan. it is a strategy to avoid a disaster, to avoid another iraq. >> asked if he was disappointed
that he had to make this decision, the president said, curtly, no. he said this is a result of a month-long review and reflects the advice and consultation of his leader at the pentagon. at the white house, kevin corke, fox news. >> thank you, kevin. former nba star lamar odom remains on life support after being found near death following a suspected drug overdose. but this morning, there are conflicting reports on his condition. leah gabriel is here now with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. the two-time nba champ is in critical condition in a medically induced coma at a las vegas hospital. but espn reports he is showing signs of improvement. the sport site says doctors remain hopeful after odom squeezed the hand of his sister-in-law, kim kardashian yesterday. but doctors say given his lack of sxons responsiveness, that hand squeeze may have been an
involuntary movement. and despite reports of a successful dialysis treatment, people is reporting odom is on his last leg and his estranged wife, khloe is preparing for the worst. during his stay at the brothel, they say he took several sexual performance enhancers. experts warn those supplements are often dangerous because they are not completely herbal. >> they can have huge interactions with other drugs, with many adverse side effects, including death, coma, low blood pressure. the consumer knows these are not fda approved medications and to use caution when buying anything over-the-counter that promises instantaneous results. >> blood tests are under way to determine if any substances are in odom's system. we are learning odom spent $75,000 while at the ranch.
>> he remains in our prayers this morning. terrible tragedy. dr. jamie zimmerman, a reporter for the network's medical unit has died while on vacation in hawaii. police say she was trying to cross the luma high river on the north shore when she was swept out to sea. lifeguards found her unresponsive from about 200 yards from the river's mouth. dr. zimmerman was only 31 years old. our prayers to her family. former house speaker dennis hastert intends to plead guilty in a federal hush money case. his attorneys told the judge they have reached a plea agreement on the charges. the 73-year-old is being accused of lying to federal investigators about plans to pay someone $3.5 million to hide allegations of sexual abuse from when he was a coach and the teacher in illinois. the agreement will be revealed during his plea hearing. that will happen on october 28th. now to some extreme weather.
a massive muddy mess, as you can see, in california. flash flooding sending water, mud and rocks rushing across interstate 5 near las vegas causing hundreds of cars to actually get stuck in at least five feet of mud. some of the drivers were stranded in their cars for more than an hour. >> and there's still a 0-mile shutdown in both directions. if you're in that area, you need to know about it as crews try to clear up the mess. but the thunderstorms, not over yet. maria is here live with that great news. >> wow. 30-mile shutdown? >> yeah. unfortunately we're getting what we need, which is rain out west, especially across california. but when you get rain on such dry ground, you tend to get a lot of runoff and flash flood situations like this and mudslides are a concern in that part of the country. we have an upper level low continuing to thin out here. we continue to see that moisture streaming into portions of southern california, across parts of arizona and that's going to be increasing in
coverage here as we head into the next couple of days. through the weekend, we're going to see those thunderstorms continue to go increase and also spreading farther off towards the east across parts of the four corners, the entire chain of the rockies looking at some moisture there across the western u.s. from that storm system. but by the way, across portions of the interior northeast and downwind of some of the great lakes, you're going to be looking at some lake enhanced snow showers and even some of the higher elevations picking up some snow as the colder air moves in. it's not going to be significant across the northeast. and, again, it's interior parts of that region. but it is going to be the first snowfall of the season for some of you out there. that's going to be quite exciting to see this weekend been temperatures quite cold across the northern plains. 20s and 30s. that cold air is spilling forward. take a look at the forecast in new york city by sunday morning. 39 degrees, so grab those coats. >> going to be some frost on the pumpkins. thank you, maria. >> thanks. the national transportation board just release dollars its preliminary report into the sinking of the elfaro cargo ship

extension of the u.s. military mission that was supposed to end next year. former nba star lamar odom remains on life support this morning after being found near death following a suspected drug overdose at a nevada brothel. this morning, there are conflicting reports on his condition. leah gabriel has been covering this all morning. what's the latest? >> the two-time nba champ is in critical condition in a medically induced coma at a nevada hospital. but espn reports he's showing signs of improvement. doctors remain hopeful after odom squeezed the happened of kim kardashian yesterday. but doctors says given his lack of consciousness and responsiveness following several strokes, that hand squeeze may have been an involuntary movement. and despite reports of a successful dialysis treatment for kidney failure, it's reported on his last leg and his estranged wife, khloe is

to include an up to date expiration date in order for monthly charges to process correctly. netflix blamed the slowdown in new signups on credit cards. it announced a number of new cards weren't updated with the expiration date. in fact, the number was 300,000 short of what netflix and wall street had expected. other hassles include retailers who failed to install the proper credit card readers for the new chip card. and having to remember new pin numbers assigned to the cards. back to you. >> all right. adam schapiro joining us live, thank you. we always appreciate it. to find the fox business network, adam and others, log on to foxbusiness.com/channelfinder. it is now 46 minutes after the top of the hour. are you like this, heather, in the morning? >> yes, before i even see it. >> hm-mmm.
