11:02 am
violence. none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these acts. >> governor mitt romney spoke before president obama offering his condolences and his combination of these events and went on to criticize the white house handling of all of this. >> they clearly sent mixed messages to the world in a statement that came from the administration at the embassy is the administration, the statement was a statement which is akin to a policy and was a severe miscalculation. >> president obama's heading with hillary clinton to the state department to meet with employees there. a senior official tells fox the president scheduled for a trip out west is still up in the air. they're still working on scheduling for the rest of the day. the president says we will find
11:03 am
justice in all of this. back to you. connell: thank you. dagen: for more, let's bring in kt mcfarland. fox news contributor. connell: one of the statements, we just mentioned at the top of the show, justice being done, that is what the president just talked about. how do we define that as we look at this crisis? speak of the united state unites attacked september 11, 11 years ago, and united states attacked september 11 yesterday. what does that mean? the united states territories, the embassy, it was egypt and libya. were they coordinated attacks? when the president came out, as you rightly did, he should have followed that by saying these attacks are not going to be tolerated, we will hold the host governments responsible for this.
11:04 am
some indication even in egypt there was advanced warning these attacks are coming which is why the americans had gotten out of that embassy. the president of the united states needs to say to those countries who will hold you responsible, have to protect our people, you have to have better protection of our people and if you don't do that we will reassess our relationship with you because if you don't stand strong right now, this is what happened to jimmy carter and why ronald reagan was elected. jimmy carter did not do something strong. he apologized, said let's try to negotiate and that is the kind of response i heard from president obama. dagen: did we have a better sense of who our enemies were? there is the government and the armed groups and the brigade, libyan government have any control? >> if they don't, they should.
11:05 am
we just liberated that country, lots of people running around libya with military equipment. the fact the libyan people didn't know in advance and did not stop it, why not? dagen: following up in egypt with the muslim brotherhood, is it going to diminish the death in libya and the three others? >> they are all tragic. they did not condemn these attacks, did not warn the united states. he should have been standing in front of the united states embassy. we give these people billions of dollars, helped put these people back in power.
11:06 am
this is an act of war. connell: i will sum it all up and where do you think we should actually do? >> the president of the united states so you are being held responsible, responsible for the protection of americans. if you knew about it and didn't stand in the way or didn't know about it, we're going to hold you responsible. if you cannot protect our people, we will pull our people out and stop writing all those checks. dagen: before we go, the heightened tensions between the white house and israel. add that into what happened in egypt and libya, what are we facing? >> the president of the united states having snubbed israel told israel you are on
11:07 am
your own in dealing with a nuclear iran. maybe we need some sort of a preemptive attack. it was badly handled, and he helped lead by pulling the rug out from underneath the countries is turning into the arab entity. connell: the egyptian president has asked the egyptian embassy in washington to take legal action in the united states against the makers of this film that attacks the prophet mohammed and the religion, angered some of these. >> this is like some home video some 12 people have watched on the internet. if that is the excuse they are using, it is because of all that, i think we should have a pretty fast phone conversation with him.
11:08 am
dagen: is that all it will take? >> we're propping those countries up financially. dagen: we certainly are. thank you so much, kt mcfarland. look at how oil relates to all this. up earlier in the morning, right now it is essentially flat, but down $0.09 per barrel. what to make in all of this and if it is headed higher from here. president of rg brokerage. why are we not seeing a move up in oil as we did earlier today. >> with the exception of this news bringing a little bit more risk premium into the market, the market really fundamentally has no reason to go much higher right now. keep in mind the market has a tremendous resistance around $98 level. the inventory levels do not reflect the fact he had any reason for the market to go much higher. this market has behaved
11:09 am
amazingly well in the last week or two. the market is settled back here, catching its breath. the news i don't think will be a factor. looking for more technical factors to see how we go from here. dagen: them up with dealing with iran and the rising tensions in the united states, at what point would that be a factor? >> and we have any disruption in the delivery system, any more of an embargo on the product, other than that inventory issues have not come into play, and market moving along normally, the functionality is just fine, and we have to go again on the technicals and anything that comes into play every week looking at the inventory figures. dagen: thank you so much.
11:10 am

connell: the other big story, the new iphone. we're waiting for it now. we will get it in under two hours. joining us now, in this apple event in san francisco. we have been talking about it forever, i guess we will get it, give us a preview of what you are expecting for what apple will unveil. >> what we know about the phone is the fact it will have a larger display, 4-inch display, will be their first lte phone. there is a rumor for other devices coming to market.
11:15 am
rumors are running rampant. connell: that is how appleevents happen. will there be one more thing in the end and all that kind of thing? let me ask a couple of other things. let me ask about demand for the iphone. seems to me anecdotally a decent amount of people waited, i will not upgrade until number five comes out. i will wait for the iphone 5, it is different, looks different, is that what the analysis shows? >> yeah. a number of people thought the iphone for rest were very disappointed. they were very disappointed and wanted to wait. connell: look at the mid-400 for
11:16 am
the stock, one thing he mentioned is that you have so much excitement that maybe there is a sale on the news portion of this, or does apple kind of surprised us with something in addition to the iphone. >> time to refresh the ipod, so they can certainly do that. and they can tease apple tv. but we have heard they don't have the programming cocoa nut, so it seems unlikely. connell: is that enough to keep investors happy if it is just the iphone with new features to talk about and people excited about that, but a lot of that inundated ed is that enough? give us more. >> it really happens with the carriers. really bad coverage and really high prices, there is a risk getting through the initial wave of buyers the sales will drop
11:17 am
off dramatically because people won't pay the rate, this is a carrier problem having a lot of us worried in the first quarter, clearly investors look strategically, so fourth-quarter sales will be very strong but we are really worried about the first quarter. connell: who will monitor all of this when the announcement takes place. thank you very much. >> a pleasure. dagen: that lte coverage is terrible. connell: lot of people thought that last time, doesn't look much different, i will wait for the five. dagen: a lot more to cover today. our top story is the killing of americans investor.
11:18 am
morgan attacks in libya and egypt coming up. connell: and the fallout in the drought in the midwest and what it has done to the food supply around the country. all that coverage for you on "markets now." a look at one of the markets we are following, world currencies and how they are shaping up against the dollar.

11:22 am
connell: house speaker john boehner in the top of the capitol building flying half-staff in the respons respoe attack the middle east. dagen: the attack that killed u.s. ambassador stevenson three others. connell: standing by in london with the latest. >> as the day progresses we're getting more and more information of the tragic events in libya. we know it was the u.s. ambassador to libya, his name was chris stevens. also involved, u.s. management officer shawn smith and two other americans were killed and we believe it could be secured. at or around the u.s. consulate,
11:23 am
the city on the eastern side of libya. the secretary of state clinton described them as being committed to american values and interests. the conflict hit by rockets, u.s. and libyan forces responded. also hit a vehicle in which we think investors and others were trying to sleep. libyan officials have apologiz apologized, said they're looking for who is responsible. one group being checked is a group with allegiances to a qaeda. u.s. is investigating and says justice will be done, marines are on the way. this follows a riot and an assault yesterday at the embassy
11:24 am
in cairo, egypt. but testers said they are angry a film in the united states critical of the prophet mohammed getting a lot of play on the internet that could have played a role in the attack as well. they say they are doing fine, but more security and more security throughout the region as tensions are heightened. connell: with growing tension in the middle east could be taking the spotlight away from a financial stories we would ordinarily be talking a lot about today. whether it be europe and the german court ruling or the federal reserve will do, the chief economist. getting pushed out of the headlines, what does that mean? does it make anything that is happening less important? or what is your view? >> the european situation still
11:25 am
the biggest economic threat that is out there to the u.s. and the rest of the world. the situation in libya is clearly worrisome. not in terms of what happened, very tragic event and obviously there has to be a response but the worry is if we don't play our cards right, this could lead to further instability in libya are jusjust coming out of a very difficult to tuition. it could threaten oil supplies from libya increasing recently in helping to keep prices down. it is a very volatile situation, we just have to walk a fine line. this kind of event is unconscionable. but we have a bigger picture to worry about, the global supply. connell: we're looking at oil right now relatively stable. the stocks are up slightly, you can argue bab maybe a more idylc this with the european spending money like crazy.
11:26 am
so far relatively stable. from the point of view of the economy, have to start thinking about this more than we are? what are the risks? >> we have to be thinking about this region. that is the direct link back to the u.s. any instability in the middle east and north africa has big ramifications for oil prices and for gasoline prices in the u.s. and of course the economy. just because we toppled the dictator does not mean we have a stable situation, unfortunately. connell: the money printing continues. >> we fully anticipate tomorrow the fed will announce qe3, the next round of bond purchases, the idea being essentially put a floor on the u.s. growth to prevent the outlook from deteriorating.
11:27 am
connell: thank you, sir. dagen: we heard from the president, his reaction to the terrible attacks in libya and in cairo, egypt, today that claimed four lives in libya. including our ambassador to that country. connell: u.s. john holden in the u.s. earlier this year will join us to get his reaction coming up next. let's look at the market. here is a look at the s&p 500. [ male announcer ] it's simple physics...
11:28 am
11:29 am
a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis sympto. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies,
11:30 am
celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benets with theisks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease risk factors suh as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach a intestine problems, such as bleeding and cers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the eldey are at incrsed risk for stoch bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help rightway if you have swelng of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex.
11:31 am
for a body in motion. connell: markets now at the bottom of the hour. nicole is back talking mark zuckerberg and facebook. nicole: that is right, looking closely at facebook. facebook higher today, on most $21, has not been at those levels since the middle of august, selling off. mark zuckerberg came out yesterday to talk about the fact he did not like the fact the stock had diminished. though it was time to double down. still expressing his belief in facebook giving it a nice boost today. look at the dow jones industrial
11:32 am
average, hit hitting new multir highs, highest levels since december 2007. so far so good, back to you. dagen: the handling of the tensions the middle east, and also challenger mitt romney. good to see you on this horrific day for america. how does this shape the rest of the election season and how do both of these candidates take this on, how do we change what we thought was the central issue for this country? >> foreign policy becomes a major part of the presidential election as we move into less than 60 days before the national election. i believe this attack is not about the video as it is about the anniversary, the 11th anniversary of 9/11. those who seek to do us harm no
11:33 am
anniversaries are important and remind us all they're still around and their intentions are the same they were 11 years ago. i believe this attack and a is r reminder to the american people that the middle east is a dangerous place. i believe we are in a meltdown in places like lebanon and syria and egypt and now libya. the disrespect this president has shown to israel emboldened our enemies and it is important romney speaks to those issues. we are at a critical juncture, it is important for americans to hear from the oppositions, romney seeks to unseat obama. dagen: was it wise for him, he spoke to for the president spoke this morning, was that smart? >> yes, condemn the kind of actions and apologies for the
11:34 am
first response in these attacks. a system of government that respects freedom of speech. this was a citizen who did this youtube video. just a poor excuse for intact but with land long before this video came to be. dagen: mcdonagh continued to stand by his condemnation because the embassy put out a statement very early on essentially apologizing for this anti-muslim film and he came out and condemned and said it was disgraceful the obama administration's first response wasn't to condemn the attacks on a diplomatic mission. he was sticking by that still this morning even after we found out the investor in libya and three others had been killed. >> as he should, the initial response of the united states should have been overwhelming and sure.
11:35 am
there is no excuse for killing our ambassador and three others, no excuse for overrunning our embassy in egypt but the fact the president seems to chosen he chosen sides early in his presidency distancing himself with israel has been one policy that has come back to haunt us in very tragic ways. speak up now, the fact he preempted the president responds if anything shows the resulting leadership and the difference in policy. dagen: the fact mitt romney knows him from the time he worked the boston consulting group going back to the very early days of both of their careers, to what extent does that help mitt romney, does he need to keep his distance if this plays out on the foreign
11:36 am
policy stage between the u.s. still led by president obama and israel. >> if anything it helps, he is a personal relationship in a business relationship is a huge plus. they know each other and they respect each other and they like each other. he is not certainly going to take sides in this election, but the presidents actions just as recent as yesterday where he said he wanted to meet with the president during the general assembly in washington or new york and they rejected that. the fact tha the democrats had n their platform prior to this year jerusalem would be the capital of israel and they took it out only to put it back in. shows there is a distant sea of this administration from israel who should be our conscious ally. connell: more perspective with all of this on the top story of
11:37 am
the day storming the conflict and telling the investor. we have the republican out of north dakota joining us in the past java foreign policy and a visit in this region to the world earlier in the year. the president in the last hour has talked about the fact that justice will be done. we're trying to get the definition of what justice will be, what do you think? >> we have to work with the libyan government to make sure the perpetrators are brought to justice. this is an outrageous attack, we have to condemn it in the strongest terms. working with the libyan government to make sure we find who committed the terrible crimes, killed our people, our ambassador and that justice is done.
11:38 am
connell: you made a good point, kt mcfarland is a foreign-policy alice and former government official on with us earlier this hour advocated: not the government in libya or egypt and said you have to do a better job protecting our people in these embassies. was that he is going with more diplomacy. >> information they are protecting our embassies in working with us you have to expect better securities from them. at the same time have to do more to secure our embassies. we have to require that they will work with us to root out this extremism. connell: what is the next depth? hoping to secure to calm the tensions around that embassy around the world?
11:39 am
what is the next tangible step that is appropriate after that? >> the first step is having the marines there to secure our embassy and our people. at the same time that our military and security forces will work with the libyan government to find out who did this and bring them to justice, that is very important. connell: what would you say about how they handled it this morning? comments in response to all of us on both sides. >> this is about all of us as americans making sure we protect our people at home and abroad. the anniversary of 9/11, we recognize there is still a lot of extremists and we have to work with these other government to root out for our security and for theirs.
11:40 am
i truly believe that is what governor romney was talking about. we have to take that promote leadership. connell: thank you. >> thank you. dagen: focused so clearly overseas but we want to take you to the valley, liz claman from the intel developers forum with one of the executives focused squarely on the future. connell: and then there is the drought of 2012. jeff flock at the cme with that. >> the big story would be oil, but we have not seen that. one is booming, one is crashing, i will tell you which is which when we come back.

12:05 pm
the politics of the author and the network they travel on is a truly global one. yes, we do travel to many places in the middle east and do so even in the troubled times. cheryl: obviously, you and chairman of the airline have to address the event will we do have things disruptive in that region. because dubai, which is your hub, do you find that the two of you have to address the issue over and over to make sure that global passengers are safe. does that ever come up between the two of you? >> no. let me be quite clear about this. dubai is a truly international city on any scale. we have a very large population there. one of the largest and fastest
12:06 pm
growing airline hubs in the world. today, i think last month, actually, dubai recorded over five again passengers passed to the airport in july. the same scale as the european and some of the american hubs. definitely no question that this airport will continue to grow. dubai will continue to attract people from all walks of life and it is a thriving city. there are difficult times, we cannot ignore that, but we try to do our best in the city continues to grow as it has in the past. if this is incredible challenges. it is a real success story. cheryl: do not miss part two of my story with tim clark.

so go to today and see for yourself. put me at 5 timesgreater risk o, irregular heartbeat my first thoughts were about my wife, and my family. i have the most commonype of atrial fibrillation, or afib. it's not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but my doctor put me on pradaxa instead to reduce my risk of stroke. in a clinical trial, praxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) reduced stroke risk 35% better than warfarin. and unlike warfarin, with pradaxa,
12:11 pm
there's no need for regular blood tests. that's really important to me. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have bleeding condition like stomach ulcers, or take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners, or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all medicines you take, any planned medical or dental procedures, and don't stop taking pradaxa without your doctor's approval, as stopping may increase your stroke risk. other side effects inclu indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. pradaxa is progress. having afib not caused by a heart valve problem increases yourrisk of stroke. ask your doctor if you can reduce your risk with pradaxa.

cheryl: markets have had their eyes on several things today. the middle east, germany's high court ruling and the fed meeting which gets underway today. mark matson is here now. >> yes. what happened last night was absolutely tragic. it is time to mourn as a nation. as a time as an investor, it is never time to panic.
12:13 pm
the market has seen a lot of tragedy and chaos in the mid east. at the same time, u.s. small cap value stocks are up 180% and small stocks are up 170% during the same time. today is a good example. asia is up 1% today, even with the same news. america is up. do not panic. keep your eye out 20 years from now. we pray that our government response appropriately. do not panic. cheryl: last time you are on the show, you said something that surprised me. you had of your allocation to a merging markets but about 3%. i about fell off my chair. when you have new events like this, doesn't give you pause to think that maybe allocation is a little too aggressive at this point?
12:14 pm
>> we have had that allocation for the past 15 years. the key point to make is this, owning international equities do not increase risk. that is a common perception that wall street wants people to believe. it actually reduces risk and then when markets do crash and you have to rebalance. hard for investors to do. cheryl: what about the fed? they will be doing something tomorrow, we do not know what. how are you feeling about that? >> i tell you what, cheryl, i am fed up with the fed, bottom line. they will try to increase the monetary base. the reason is because nobody wants to borrow. companies are sending over $2 trillion of cash.
12:15 pm
individuals are sitting with $7 trillion of cash. nobody in their right mind with the fiscal policy in place wants to leverage up and build one million-dollar factories and put their money into research because there is too much risk. we cannot keep running. we cannot expect that monetary policy to do anything. cheryl: mark matson, thank you very much. thank you, mark. dennis: it is 15 past the hour. stocks now every 15 minutes. nicole: number one on the s&p 500. when you are looking at it, you can see it is a winner today. the stock has been a stellar performer. what are they surging today? upgrading them to a bond. talking about the fact that their turnaround is really underway. their margins lagged with the

12:22 pm
one, result of injuries from these projectiles or possibly a fixation of the smoke from the fire. libyan officials have apologized and said they will do everything they can to bring those responsible to justice as washington has said the same thing. we have spent a lot of time and lidia and we know there are a lot of militant groups there that could have been involved. this follows that other violent right and assault on the u.s. embassy in cairo yesterday. the flag being taken down. another flag being held up, an arabic language banner. this was definitely involved with this film that was made in the united states. it was believed that both incidents could be related.

dennis: protect them from doing what? >> .com the second point. he needs to make it there publicly and privately that they did not fulfill their responsibilities to protect our people. i think that message has to go out to other governments in the region as well. i am very worried we are at a moment before our diplomats were taken hostage. dennis: it does seem fairly familiar to those who remember 1979. mitt romney came out this morning with a rather strong statement which was critical of the obama administration. >> american leadership is necessary to make sure that event in the region to not spin out of control. we cannot hesitate to use our influence in the region to

12:34 pm
>> i cannot explain that. i agree with your characterization of the obama statement. i thought it conveyed weakness again. i am very worried that the failure to make it clear publicly as well as privately that there are consequences when our ambassadors are killed, when people are put in jeopardy, private citizens in the region are in jeopardy as well. dennis: when present obama says justice will be done, does this mean waiting for libyan government to do something or can we send it navy seals and start doing justice ourselves? lastly, i think the obama administration has said the president will be traveling today to make a campaign appearance. >> i think that is a bad idea. we do not know what is coming next. in 1979 our embassy was breached

it sends a very strong message to the markets we have you covered. does it really? dennis: today they announced a guy calling for creation of a truly controlling european central bank. ashley: it is really interesting. taking integration in the euro zone to a whole new level. what we need is for them to regulate all 6000 banks in the euro zone. that would be 17 countries. then you would have phased out over those banks. the question is what they want to give up that amount of sovereign right. the problem is, though, the ecb is saying we can never come to grips unless we have some kind of centralized body of government. dennis: okay. 1030 is adding one more.

12:44 pm
on the table. we valued what they had to offer which was access to their domestic market, the 5000 flights. taken together, it was a model of commercial corporation, which i think will be part of the 21st century aviation. there will be airlines coming together which value what they have to offer each other which may transcend the current structures in place. cheryl: tim, final question to you, again, while we are focused on pensions in the middle east, that could affect fuel prices. are you concerned at all about jet fuel prices? >> of course. we are always concerned about jet fuel prices. we spent $6.6 billion on fuel. it is hovering around $90. things are threatening to go back above the 100-120 level.
12:45 pm
this makes it difficult for the whole aviation community. it will cause the very rapid decline and possible termination of a number of airlines if they are not careful. yes, it is difficult times and what happened recently is not helping. cheryl: that was emirates president, tim clark. that video that you thought was the first jet landing at dulles. dennis: it is a quarter till. we have stocks now. you have to retailers. nicole: absolutely. we are looking at sears and kohls. over at torture bank today, talking about their same store sales today. that has been subsiding. talking about cheap evaluations.
