2:14 am
secured and analyst doctor rebecca grant, thank you for joining us. a lot of people trying to make sense of what happened in the overnight hours, the reports you just mentioned that he ordered this and told everybody to stand down. do you think that is part of his strategy to keep iran off-base and what he is going to do? >> it could work that way. he had a senior leader, he may have given initial approval for a strike and something changed, maybe with an ally, maybe in the target area, maybe us military forces or a message from iran. trump is showing he is methodical, cautious, careful and still has all the military options open. >> they took down one of our drones. we don't strike back, do we look week? >> that's right. this is not just a tiny drone
2:15 am
but a major u.s. navy surveillance asset, unprovoked attack, in international airspace. it is a gray area but in my opinion a strike is justified. if it is a measured response particularly on surface-to-air missile battery that took out that drone. there are a number of strike options, it will be up to trump to decide what is right to do. jillian: we have seen the president not hesitate to strike before when warranted, we saw that with syria on a number of occasions. everyone is trying to figure out why he pulled back. a big topic of conversation. aside from what happened yesterday what would you see as the next step from the president? >> he has launched strikes before but donald trump has proven to be very methodical and cautious with strikes. what is next? look at the intel. look at the situation with the allies and there is still a possibility of a retaliatory measured strike.
2:16 am
in my mind that would be something like a tomahawk lead cruise missile strike or an airstrike on specific military target. a lot of collateral damage estimation goes into this to make sure we are not hitting civilians or the wrong type of target so trump has always options. he is in no rush and he will decide when the time is right. rob: a tweet from congresswoman ilhan omar. just like in iraq, using illegitimate pretext to beat the drums of war. that first line. we have had ships attacked, a drone taken down and what you make of that? >> the congresswoman is way off base. it is not accurate to compare this to iraq. this is a situation that iran created with its july 7th deadline to restart nuclear activity. they attacked, shot down two drones, they have attacked tankers, they have made threats and what we are talking about is not a land invasion but a
2:17 am
measured air and naval response. we are going to continue heavy surveillance of that region, talk to and work with our allies. in this case the congresswoman is way off base. this is iran, not iraq. jillian: you talked about working with our allies, who specifically do we need to hear from on this? a lot to be made of what china will think about this, north korea, russia etc.. >> exactly. for the allies, we have a lot of naval forces working there with our fifth fleet. we will be talking with other parties in the iran deal the trump pulled out of and that would be great. the other security council members, very important to talk with our golf state allies. the others will be in constant communication as to the state of the situation in the gulf. golf allies and nato allies. rob: charlie hurt made a good point. how bad must the situation be in iran that they are trying to
2:18 am
pick a fight with the united states? >> excellent point but this is part of iran's strategy, they think their fast boats and knowledge of their home waters are enough to let them take on the u.s. navy and they want to strike out and provoke war, and to get the europeans to give them a backdoor financial mechanism to get around sanctions. this is absolutely aimed at splitting the us and our allies. we can't let them do that. at some point down the road we may need a measured military response to deter iran and show that military activity will not get them out of this terrible situation they created. jillian: thanks for joining us. have a good day. it is 18 minutes after the air. the murder trial of navy seal eddie gallagher.

2:35 am
based on income only in comparison with many other programs they taught us about that are based on ascending level of income and assets. if a person has money in the bank and 20,000 whatever or in my case more they are not eligible, should not be eligible for food stamps in my case but eligibility only and my wife and i were retired, drawing very little income and i thought i might be eligible for this so i filled it out, took it to the county and 3 weeks later i am getting food stamps and i am somewhat appalled. i contacted my state senator jeff how, and you can tell them what happened then. >> we started working on this in 16, wrote some legislation,
2:36 am
basically took what used to be the federal asset test and applied that and what happened was we struggled to get a hearing. we did get a hearing it was pretty ugly and instead of trying to help us find common ground on how we actually make this program work and close those loopholes they attacked mister alexander and accused him of wrongdoing when the fraud investigators looked at him and said he did everything -- rob: he didn't break any rules or do anything wrong. >> the program is set that way. i would say mister anderson -- alexander was cheap labor because the audit this program, showed us where the flaws were for under $6000. so we have been working -- rob: when you see something like this and you see push back, you

are showing from this problem and you have a better way to do this, better way to stop this. >> absolutely. we work through the program and had a good bill last year and instead of trying to help us find common ground, push back and say there is no problem, very few people doing this and we don't believe, we don't know how big the problem is. unless we put the parameters up and close the loophole that allows this to happen we will never know how big the problem is. rob: you can see the different restrictions by state here and how there are so many states that don't have a place to check on this. were you shocked to see this type of thing? i can't imagine i don't think you are a scammer, just trying to make a change.

2:51 am
don't have a problem is the compound throughout the day. the first flight of the day. if you booked your flight and are headed to the airport prepare your self, arrive early, use everything you have as a resource. the number one thing is those two hours to arrive early, more critical than ever in the summer. make sure you are keeping that in mind. jillian: check those connections too. there are more automated things especially screening reducing wait times but does it make it harder for some people when you don't have an agent to ask the question or whatever the case may be? >> the key is get there prepared early so that you can get through that process as seamlessly as possible. jillian: tsa pre-checks, something very popular in the last few years. we were talking about this during commercial break.
