>> the whole bill needs to be started over! >> you are getting ready it sign a check on the back of the american people and you will bounce another check. >> i as a 20-year-old person will have to deal with this for the rest of my life and i will have to pay for this. >> this is not a federal government issue. this is a people issue. >> those were the good old days, weren't they? could we see the same level of discord as law makers return home. chris playing for the nationals? just kidding he doesn't play baseball. what is it going to be like? is it rowdy raucuses if fights as in 2009 or a tepid bora or snooze fest? we are not as raucused.
10:09 am
those town halls were grassroots and over a national fight of health care reform. congress had been dealing with this to the august recess and people were engaged and they went home, and law makers went home, they were told by folks, i don't like this. and what we'll see in august debates on immigration and spending, a lot of the folks who are pushing this is special interest groups. >> you mentioned health care issues in 2009. the visceral anger is greater now. i mean, look out in california, 60,000 people got policy cancellations from their insurance companies. and people all over america are experiencing in the mail every day sticker shock over their premiums and now, the internet is more organized and
10:10 am

10:11 am
offices. they know where they live in the home districts. what did that immigration? >> on immigration, you will have both sides gearing up here. folks that are fighting amnesty and senate gang of eight. and met at 50 lobbyist before everyone left town and they said you have to get out there and fight for immigration reform. and what i thought was interesting, greg, house leadership didn't take up immigration bills before the august recess. and part of the reason they didn't, they worried about creating a back lash and not doing anything a head of august and they didn't decree a lot of momentum and hoped to keep things quieter going in to the fall when they dealt with it in a peace meal way. >> if i am a law maker, i would want to be away.

10:19 am
and justice will prevail. >> i know you stand strong for justice and for the country. after being shot seven times, you are clearly a survivor, but there is post traumatic stress and being questioned by major has an himself. how do you prepare for that? >> i start with my belief in god and my support system from my family and friends and all americans and i think about the 14 that was lost that day and i think about the british soldiers that was killed in great britain and i draw strength for them and we make sure it doesn't happen again. >> you are so unselfish and so thoughtful. they are seeking the death.and

and hernandez. and tony bastarlo. and sergeio escologna. it does not mention alex rodriguez yet. we are awaiting a release from major league baseball. mlb source tells him there will be a release and no presser. it looks like they are leaning to a couple of releases and a lot of speculation that a rod will be suspended from this year and the entirity of 2014. and the commissioner could ban him for life under the collective bargaining agreement. it could be a major stand off here and we await the major developments. >> this is a shocking scene in california. a power plant implosion goes
10:27 am
terribly wrong. and hundreds of people had gathered in bakersville to watch the demolition and flying snap nel injured some. >> they would implode this thing and a huge crowd gathered to see it and people were camping out overnight to make sure they had front row seats and they set up a security perimeter around the plant and the fire department pushed it back further to be safe. it was not far enough. and remember, in an implosion, things are supposed to fall in and listen to the implosion and watch the shrapnel fly.
10:28 am
looking at the shrapnel. it is difficult to see. the people are a thousand feet away. see it shooting out over there? five people were hit by flying metal including a man whose leg was severed. >> they looked down and his leg was cut. and his to the was missing and leg was all torn up. >> that man was rushed to the hospital. he was watching with his kids when he got piece of a metal which was big as a dorof a house. >> i think the impact of the idea that my boys were with me and my knee was and two to the left. it could have taken them out. it would have been horrific.

10:32 am
10:33 am
>> now back to our top story as
10:34 am
we wait the white house press briefing concerning the intelligence community that the obama administration may have revealed too much information in the latest terrorist warning including details on how the plot of how u.s. embassies may be carried out. lieutenant coronel author. it is pretty easy for the enemy to figure out sources and methods. did the president reveal too much and thus, compromising our future enteleigence gathering? >> there is no question he blew it up in international headlines and this administration does everything with political lens. and this is after the debacle, this is the white house saying
10:35 am
so we know what it is going on. bad guys are like they figured it out. we'll kick the can down the road and the impact on intelligence. al-qaeda leaders now how ever they communicate. we cracked the code and monitored the patterns and al-qaeda people know there is an agent in their ranks and they will purge them. the right approach would have been to quietly close the embassies but not going screaming and yelling internationally. >> there may be line between prudence and retreat. some critized the closing running and hiding. and some think they should fight the enemy if they dare attack.
10:36 am
>> the place to fight iraq and we won and obama ran away. and libya and after the benghazi debacle. but we have to protect the diplomats. i don't have a problem with closing the embassies and cutting back on staffing, but i have a problem with making a political display out of. it the benghazi consulate was inadequately protected. and he begged for reenforcements and one could argue had his request been heated. but if his request was heated and a heavy military presence there, the terrorist might have been repelled and killed. is that the lesson of benghazi instead of closing down and hiding? >> so many lessons on benghazi and that is.
10:37 am
and with the embassies, the locals have to have access and you can't have an embassy -- it is a strug toll balance protection and access. you can't put enough marines to guard it perfectly all of the time. butñr benghazi, that was just, u made a check list of how to screw up protecting a u.s. diplomatic facility, we checked every block. >> the problem with closing embassies and announce when they will open a week from now, you are telling the terrorist to wait it out and then you can attack. the end of the week, the administration is back to square one, rrnt they? >> yeah. they certainly are. you can't keep them closed forever. but i also think that a problem that we americans have, we look at this and think it is always
10:38 am
about us. they want to hurt and kill us. but what is going on now, greg, is an internal power struggle with al-qaeda and the core al-qaeda as we call them. they are gutted and then the young studs fighting in syria and libya and iraq resurging the al-qaeda and the plot looks like a l- za hwera. escalate the chatter and al-qaeda, which i control, we can shut down embassies. >> they like jerking our chaen. but you have a struggle between the old core jihaddist who have global aspirations and perfectly
10:39 am
in the heartland. the new al-qaeda wants to establish emiates on their own turf and then move out. there is a lot behind the story. we can't just see it through the white house lens of how do we dodge the political bullet. >> always good to speak with you. >> his disappearance changed the way law enforcement looked for missing children. but the self- confessed killer of eta n patees may go free. >> death of a hacker, he is found dead just before he was to deliver a big speech on how to hack in life saving devices. >> and helping wounded u.s. veterans. one man has serious help after

10:43 am
>> as i mentioned his disappearance changed the way law enforcement looked for missing children. the confessed killer of eton patees may go free. >> you remember pedro hernandez was arrested after police got tipped off that hernandez confessed to people he knew. he was a clerk in soho, of new york city. he claimed he used soda to lure the six-year-old in the basement and he put the body out with the trash and put the book bag in the freezer and neither of them
10:44 am
were found. despite numberous searches police have no physical evidence. no blood dna or fibers linking hernandez to the crime and the only witnesses are the ones that heard hernandez confess. prosecutors say it is difficult to win. his client is bipolar and low iq and his confession is unreliable. and the attorney said hernandez has been in jail for a year and time to try him or set him free. investigators are scrambling to come up with more evidence or may have to let him go. and if they do try him, jamie, the trial would likely be in early or late spring of next year. >> so many years. trace, thank you for setting up so we can have the discussion from burns. and keith sullivan who is
10:45 am
a defense attorney. welcome to both of you. you both practice here and it is all new york law. let me ask you first, eton's parents, they want answers about their little boy, but other than the confession they have nothing. >> it is a straight legal rule. forget the facts. it may be a hard case to win or convince the jor, if they held the trial tomorrow and had no evidence under new york procedural law it would be reversed. you must have evidence. >> and at this point, you think they can uncover additional evidence? >> i don't. the police department did a thorough investigation. they dug up basement of buildings where another
10:46 am
pedophile said he was responsible for abduction and death. he said it was buried in certain basements and they didn't uncover it. and the family in jersey said hernandez told us that he did something terrible in and around that time and he worked up the deli. he never confessed he molested or abducted eton. and as a result that sparked a further investigation and arrest. there is not a shred of evidence other than than his open statement. >> if they move forward with the trial and case against him, what is more persuasive for the defense council to use. the fact that someone was held for the death and said he did it or the fact they don't have circumstantial evidence. >> the advantage of defense attorney you can work both sides of the rom. you would work every angle you
10:47 am
would. on the one hand, keith said you have jose rams on held liable for the death. that is a huge point for a defense and then just sprinkle in that there is no physical evidence what so ever. it would be possible to get a conviction. it is not a valid legal conviction. >> he could a pole and there is no stat u of limitation. >> five years from now. they can hold him what period of time and how much more. >> there is no statute of limitation or move to dismiss without prejudice. and they will not want to go forward on the case and have him obtain an acquittal. >> his own attorney said he is bipolar and he didn't do the crime and if they have to let him go, he is on the streets?
10:48 am
>> absolutely. that's why the reporting is making it a issue. but working off the previous point. not only the statute of limitation. once they are in the court system on a particular charge you move forward or dismiss and that leads in to your point oh, my god. >> keith, what does a prosecutor do? >> this is a tough situation and they took it upon themselves. they campaigned on this issue and only campaigned on it because the opoept had a moting and said i am going to resurrect all of the cold cases. and not to be undone, he will do the same thing and threw himself in the patched case. it is a political issue. >> that is an astute point. why would you indict a case when
10:49 am
you have someone else liable for the death. >> why? >> no, i mean, as keith said political pressure on a case that is decades old and everything in law, you know as well as anybody it is a balancing test. do we get the short term gain today knowing that we will have a problem down the road. >> what is your prediction. we'll go forward with the case. >> federal prosecutors went after jose rams on who is in prison and haven't looked at hernandez. i don't know when they will do. they are in a really, really tight spot. they will not want to go forward if they believe he is the right person because it would be an acquittal. >> isn't it true that you can get an expert that examines him and he has certain dreams that show he has a tendency to do something like this. if it is possible you go forward
10:50 am
there are things you can raise and convince the court? >> you might be able to convince a jury of that but have you no corroborating evidence, which i think doug said at the beginning and laid out eloquently, you need that from a legal standpoint. >> as a matter of law you must drop the case? >> it is more after legal point. the point of you made real quick is there may be a way to put together corroboration theory. and what is corroboration? so they may be able to try. >> all right. tough for everybody. hope to see a resolution in this case. thanks to both of you. greg? >> new outrage after man claiming to be a highly decorated vietnam vet, three purple hearts and three silver stars. turns out to be nothing but a fraud. we will look at the stunning lack of oversight and consequences for real vets who do need real help. plus breaking news in major league baseball suspensions.

10:55 am
$500 million for ip services. he applied for the construct through the business program designed to give wounded warriors preference in contracts. but his disability was a twisted ankle al military prep school 27 years ago. when he testified in june about that contract a real double warrior, double amputee, tore into him. listen up. >> twisting your ankle is not serving this nation, mr. castillo. the veteran owned program is ripe with fraud and abuse because nobody in government checks for honesty. take the case of warren parker who won $5 million in government contracts for his construction firm. >> mr. parker add tremendously heroic r heroic resume. three purple hearts.
10:56 am
he even kept a diary of snipers hits from vietnam. it turns out it was a fraud. mr. parker served five years in missouri national guard. he never left the state. >> after parker was sentenced to jail, the v.a. tightened up verification procedures. >> in 2011 when they changed the process for verification, 10,000 firms stopped, just dropped out of the program. so that showed how much fraud there was in the program. >> but the vooe was the only agency to tighten its standard. as a result, nobody knows rampant really is. the house strengthened controls for all programs and hopefully something will now happen. but fraud is rampant, jamie. >> all right, doug from d.c. thanks, doug. >> we are moment from the white house press briefing. we are expected to get new

where there are fewer people involved. but with the higher level operatives in al qaeda talk about a serious threat, making a change in policy, being out there and trying to be in a situation where they will kill anyone from the west and attack anyone from the west, not american. so to answer your question, clearly we have to be ready. get intelligence. and we need the public involved. you know, when you see something unusual, let your authorities know. because they are not going to be as many people involved in these new conspiracies because they are trying to avoid detection from us. >> congressman, they have all kinds of new ways that jennifer griffin was telling us, surgically implanted, using women and children. that's the situation everyday. so what changes when this broad -- let's show the map again, of the number of embassies and consulates. how do you, in this large
11:04 am
region, keep things safe at home and what is different since everyday since 9/11 when we know they want us dead? >> the best defense against terrorist attacks is intelligence. we have a tremendous, great intelligence community that is working everyday it gain intelligence to protect us. also working with our allies. but we have to be aware. now for the rest of our lives that people, especially al qaeda and other terrorist groups, that want to kill us everyday. and they will try to plan. we are trying to be a step ahead and get this information so when we get a threat like we got we are doing whatever we can to be very safe and put all-americans on alert all over the world, especially in the hot spots. >> and i appreciate that. but why not say, look -- well with you don't want to give too much information, i understand. but such a broad warning for folks. should they be traveling, planes, trains, do we have everything we need in place? >> let me address that. you want to protect your families. we should not change our lifestyle because of al qaeda but we have to be careful.
11:05 am
we have to make sure we don't go to certain areas. i would not go to yemen if you planned a trip to yemen or other hot spots. i would not go to egypt right now. i would continue to do what you're doing everyday, just be alert, be aware and we have tremendous people out there, collecting intelligence and so do our allies that are trying to get information so that we can defer the attack. you know, one of the reasons this is out there, and we are putting this out there is to let them know, we know that they've got attacks or plans and we will do whatever we can to deter those attacks and protect americans and our allies all over the world. >> congressman, thank you so much. >> sure. >> greg? >> iran is swearing in a new president. that is stirring up a new debate about the rogue nationes a nuclear program. senior white house foreign affairs correspondent is live in the state department with more.
11:06 am
hi, wendel. >> hi, greg. he told the world, if you want a suitable answer, speak through the language of respect, not the language of sanctions. we presume he is talking about iran's nuclear program. u.s. officials think he is more likely to compromise. foreign dignitaries were invited to the swearing in yesterday. first time they've done that since the 1979 revolution. that is seen as a positive. deputies are being approved by the ayatollah. but he has said nothing specific about compromising over the nuclear program and it is unclear about how much influence he might have with the ayatollah, who is the person who controls the nuclear program. this thought rohani is more favored and make an offer iran can say yes to. >> if the defense is we can give and give and give, but there's
11:07 am
no way that the u.s. hostility will ever be blunted, there is no way congress will ever respond it a changed iranian policy than rather than helping encourage the iranians to do what you want them to do. you make it less likely that iranians will do what you want them to do. >> president obama may not have as much flexibility as he like in offering carrots to iran. 76 senators have sent a letter calling on him to toughen sanctions and to restate the military option in order to put more pressure on iran for a diplomatic resolution that removes their ability to produce a nuclear weapon. greg? wendel, thanks. >> a popular tourist destination, we are learning that folks on the transformers ride at universal studios in california got stuck a short time ago. and trace is taking a look at that for us live in our west coast newsroom. trace? >> just down the road from us, jamie. apparently this thing just
11:08 am
stopped mid way. transformers ride is a 3-d ride so they use a lot of 3-d screens and technology to make you believe you are moving faster than you are. it is inside and not really the roller coaster tracks. the ride does move a little bit. but apparently about 45 minutes to an hour ago, the ride just stopped. it got stuck. and the firefighters today had in and remove people one by one. we are told that six passengers have been removed and four others are still wait tock removed. but there are no reports of any injuries and nobody appears to be in any kind of threatening situation right now. if you haven't seen the ride, transformers is a 3-d ride where you have the decepticons that want it take over the earth, and the robots enlist humans to make sure they can't do that. in this case, clearly, the decepticons won the day, because the ride is shut down. have you humans that are stuck, waiting for the fire department to pull them out. if we get any updates, jamie, we will come back in.
11:09 am
but right now, no one appears to be in danger. it just delayed their day at the theme park. firefighters are going in to get the rest. we assume the ride will be shut down for a few hours or maybe the remainder of the day. jamie? >> okay, trace. thank you so much. >> new controversy over the death of a celebrated cyber hacker. coming up, grayson will look at the initial reports of just how that man known as barnaby jack died and why some of his supporters are not buying it. mlb releasing a list of suspended players as we await the possibility that yankees slugger alex rodriguez will be among them. we will tell you who's on the list so far. who isn't on the list. who is exonerated essentially and la it means for a-rod's plans to play later tonight. >> lifetime ban. >> lifetime ban? >> yeah. everybody else got it.

11:14 am
so stay tuned for that. join meg now, is sports attorney dominik romano. good to see you. by all indications, they are going to throw the book at alex rodriguez. not just 50 games. thissi year and all of 2014. does that seem likely? >> yeah. it seems about 214 games. there is a big distinct between what rodriguez is alleged to have done and who other players have done. they have been living with this problem for a number of years. since the mitchell report. they had a big black eye on their face and new they are taking strict action. >> let me pick up on what you said. what rodriguez did was so much worse than other players. he wasn't just using drugs for years, he was tampering with evidence, trying to buy incriminating documents. and intimidating witnesses, right? >> yes. obstructing the investigation.
11:15 am
cooperating with ga leah, on two federal charges. >> isn't that worse than what pete rose did? and he got a lifetime ban. >> it is worse, if you look at it. there are constant denials this has been going foreign a decade. in 2007 he went national television and tote katie couric he never took peds. then two years later admits taking them earlier in his career when he was younger and naive. in 2002 and 2 003 i took them but nothing since. >> but obstruction in tampering that outraged the commissioner bud selig. >> yeah. the pattern of behavior to consider himself allegedly above the rules, above the law. what pete rose did, that was a personal thing. it could have been -- >> and he still claims that he didn't bet against the reds. which is a huge difference. >> right. >> let me ask you. as i read article 11 for the collective bargaining agreement, commissioner bud selig has
11:16 am
unfettered discretion to ban alex rodriguez for life. >> yes. very broad powers. and some are saying he may not envoc that under the circumstances. may try to work with the union to find a resolution here. but there's no love lost here between the parties. >> you know. a lot has been written that if a-rod does try to challenge this and go to arbitration, that might so provoke the commissioner that he will envoc the lifetime ban. and he could do it that way, right? >> he could. he has the right to do it. whether he will use that strong power remains to be seen. >> what's the point of going to the arbitrator? as i read it, he cannot stay, the suspension of a-rod. he cannot overturn it. is that true? >> well, in the past, arbitrators have add history of reducing suspensions. remember yankees pitcher from a lifetime ban to just over a hundred games. this this case, though, what we are hearing is the evidence is so overwhelming that at best he might just buy himself a few
11:17 am
weeks, a-rod. >> a lot of players have turned against a-rod. abandoned their support of him because he is so disgraced and his conduct was regarded as so egregious. would that inflew entinfluence players association and challenge selig. >> that's a good question. there are recent players who have been playing by the rules. one of the california angels, los angeles angels pitchers came up the other day and said, look, he is taking steroids or peds and not only inflated his own statistics, it affected our salaries went when went to salary arbitration. what yankees say publicly, what they are saying or thinking or feeling inside might be two different things on this issue. >> what would be a-rod's best course here? we hear and some have been written from his camp that the guy is in total denial. he doesn't get it.
11:18 am
he doesn't understand the full risk of a lifetime ban. some of them are trying to say, listen, a-rod, just take the year and a half suspension. you will still get $60 million. is that best course of action? >> yes. take the punishment, like man. admit what you did, and if you did it, and help your team. >> yeah. one of his advisors is quoted as suggesting that, well, we'll file a federal lawsuit. but look, the problem with that is, the only legal monopoly in america is major league baseball. supreme court granted them an antitrust exemption. i not sure a federal judge would touch this. >> i think you're right. he's in a tough spot. think about it, if he takes the year and half and comes back after 214 games. he will be 40. two hip surgeries. what will his career be than? it is a very difficult situation for a-rod. but an lot of sympathy for him today. >> if he tries to litigate it in

11:25 am
could take months to figure out. police say no foul play suspected. the internet was on fire. with conspiracy theorys. everybody weighing in saying, the government killed barnaby jack. or that his death was fake so he could secretly work for the government. barnaby jack spent his career demonstrating the dangers posed by unscrupulous hackers, pointing out that computer manufacturers failed to install the proper security measures. which is why it was so easily then to be hacked. jack was supposed to appear in vegas this weekend to show off his talents. and we should note that nobody knows of any kind of illness or any drugs he was involved in. but again the medical examiner said the results, toxicology et cetera, could take weeks, maybe months, to come back before we find out exactly when a died of, jimmy. very mysterious. >> very, at 35. trace gallagher live in los

11:32 am
could potentially be beyond that or elsewhere. and so, we cannot be more specific, which is why we've taken soft actions we've taken and made the statements that we've made. >> there is some breaking news. white house press secretary jay carney reacting moments ago to our top story, worldwide travel alert issued for americans abroad is now appears, expanded. and while 19 u.s. diplomatic outposts, embassies and consulates remain closed in the middle east and africa, the linger about the potential attack by al qaeda, one wonders whether that may now mean that embassies will remain closed for a while as well. fox news contributors ambassador john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations. ambassador, always good to see you. can you react it what jay carney
11:33 am
said? it would go through and including through at least september 11th, wouldn't it? >> yeah. that was a mystery to me, in the state department travel warning issued on friday, which did go through august 31st and it seems to be tied to the information directly related to the embassy and consulate closure, which was also announced at end of last week. but obviously any time you come up on the september 11th anniversary, that has to be a matter of concern. and i would say, not just in and around the arabian peninsula but particularly in the united states as well. >> so the travel alert, we just now learned, will extend. but one wonders whether, does that mean the consulate, and embassies, and so forth, in the region we've identified, do you think those will be extended, the closures? >> i don't think we can tell at this point. obviously they've been extended through the end of this week. and one has to wonder just how much more information we have or
11:34 am
what we've got. obviously we had a particular focus at the beginning of the week. but it is unclear whether it'll extend further. that's why i think this question of our ongoing intelligence gathering capabilities become so important. >> well i want to ask you about that. was the nsa's controversial surveillance program the source of this intelligence and warn something on capitol hill are saying, no, not at all. but are you pretty sure that it was? >> well the nsa has a lost intelligence gathering programs. that's its business. it spies on foreigners. despite the hoopla we heard, it focuses own americans only if there is a connection with foreign enemies, foreign terrorist or foreign espionage activity. so i would be surprised if one of the nsa's electronic service programs wasn't involved. whether it was prism or x key
11:35 am
stroke or the telephone logs that have been the subject of controversy. we don't know. but i tell you, going forward, it seems to me that those programs are ideally designed to try and help nsa and the government as a whole, put together these bits and pieces of information to tell us more of what the actual target of this might be. >> if the nsa program was indeed responsible for uncovering a terrorist plot, do you think, in the mind of many americans, their opinions about the surveillance by nsa will change? they may say, wait a minute. this does justify and vindicate the program in uncovering terrorist plots? >> i certainly hope so as more information comes out, whether we want it to or not, we will have a debate about the nsa programs. and i hope as more people understand what the nsa actually does, they'll see that it is really critically important to protecting us against these foreign threats. i mean, hon liestly, i will tryd
11:36 am
be polite here, but the people discussing what nsa does, have very little information about its direction, its focus, and what it uncovers. >> yeah. well this program, of course, was exposed by ed snowden. and it invites the question, since he is now being granted asylum, at least temporary asylum by vladimir putin and the president has an upcoming bilateral summit with putin, in your judgment, should the present cancel his meeting with putin? >> i think he should cancel the meeting given that the russians have granted snowden temporary asylum. but depriving vladimir putin of barack obama's presence hardly constitutes retaliation for the harm we've suffered as a result
11:37 am
of russirussia's activities. i think more needs to be done against china for allowing snowden a few days in hong kong then permitting him to go on to moscow when they knew very well we wanted him turned back over us to. so i think both countries need to feel some pain. >> after the benghazi attack on our consulate, almost a year ago, you know, the president said on many occasions, more than 30 occasions, in fact, he said al qaeda has been decimated. or he sad, on the path to defeat. was he wrong? was he naive? was that just political rhetoric? what do you think? >> probably all of the above. i mean, i think it is revealed now to be a tissue thin narrative that suited the president's political purposes by trying to define al qaeda into the narrowiest terms. and then by saying because they were badly harmed that al qaeda
11:38 am
as a whole is badly harmed. al qaeda isn't a corporate organization chart. it never was. and it is now evolved. turned into a network organization. but it still reflects the radical islamic terrorist bent that osama bin laden was trying to get going in many countries and has succeeded in iraq, in the arabian peninsula. in north africa and perhaps elsewhere. >> ambassador john bolton, as always, sir, thank you very much. >> thank you for having me. >> democrats and republicans are coming into the start of t20 /* the 2016 presidential campaign. we see how one side struggles to define what its party is all about. campaign carl cameron takes a look at what the contrast here tells us about the campaigns to come. he is live in washington. carl, only you would have a heads up at this point. >> well, congress goes on
