7:00 pm
yes, it does, sheryl, problem, have you? e-mails and tweets, keep coming must you unite good. see you tomorrow, whatever. lou: good evening, the justice department has filed changes against 5 officers of the chinese people's liberation army for committee cyberattacks, and espionage against the u.s., obama administration has brought charges against only the 5 individuals for hacking, stealining with technology and military weapon secrets, there are no charges or claims against the government of china. neither the state department or pentagon have responded to the chinese instruction of our most sensitive, 1 thought, secure military technology secret. president obama has choseen to
7:01 pm
react in. the same we he responseed to vladimir putin's invasion. cautiously, without prospect of resolution or punishment. attorney general holder announced 31 charges again 5 military officers for hacking american companies allegeing that officers hacked 6 pittsburgh base companies, u.s. steel, westing house, alcoa, allegheny technology, solar world, and uniteed steel workers union, they worked from the same office building in shanghai. they stole product designs, to confidential legal strategys, to give chinese companies, an advantage over their american counterparts, attorney general eric holder declareed quote, enough is enough. >> today we're announcing an
7:02 pm
indictment against 5 officers of the chinese people's liberation army for serious cyber security breachs again 6 american victim companies. these represent the first ever charges again known state act for inte infiltrating u.s. targ. lou: jay carney refuseed to answer whether the subject of the brought up who china's top general was in washington last week. >> we have raised tried concerns with the chinese government. and today's announcement reflects our growing concern that this chinese behavior has continued. >> why is the president targets individuals instead of governments that are so transparently behind these acts? all russia has done is invade a sovereign nation and allie, all china has done steal billions of dollars worth of secrets, from
7:03 pm
u.s. businesses and most likely the government itself. we'll answer those questions, tonight. our first guest said that difference between united states and china is that we use cyber technology to defend or national -- our national security not steal commercial secrets, joining us ambassador john negroponte. serving under president george w. bush, 45 time ambassador in his career. good to have you here ambassador, turn to first china. 5 individuals selected for all of the world looking much like sanctions applied to russia for invadeing and annexing crimea. >> well this is let's face it, a big new development we've been saying for a long time that the chinese government or sources in china were stealing our
7:04 pm
intellectual property, but i don't recall seeing an indictment of this kind. the technology research company that put out a huge report about it, about a army unit in shanghai posting on our information, a number of months back. this seems to be a sequel to that but now the issue is out. and it will beg the question of what else are we going to do about it. i would see it as a promising sign that we're bringing this situation now officially open to light. and there has to be something that follows this, i don't think we can expects instant gratification here but, i for one am pleaseed that our government has taken this action, and will watch with great interest what happens next. lou: and i think what you are saying both correct and fair. as tepid as it may seem, what
7:05 pm
obama administration has done today, is the first time any administration has taken action against china in any form, but this is in the form of law enforcement rather than eye than a government responding to a threat to national interest. we know clearly that china and the people's liberation army, have been hacking in u.s. firms, for the past 15 years. have done so successfully, they have been attacking government officers including pentagon. and coming away we're informed at least, with a sensitive material, we have to take action. but what would be the next step in your judgment? >> well, i am not certain, you know i chaired a council on foreign relations or co-chaired, last year. that in the month of june put out a report that was among
7:06 pm
other things highlighting some of the things that china was doing, regre regrettably the imf the report was under cut by fact that mr. stphoed know maz snowds revelations at the same time, this is an attempt to regain the initiative get back some high ground, i don't know what next step will be. but, there is going to be follow-up. we have to see what happens. lou: general alexander who has left the nsa, warning now of what he sees as a new wave of terror, given the activity of al qaeda, that is rising around the globe. are you in agreement with the general? what are your thoughts? >> i certainly share his concern about al qaeda activity. they are not on the ropes.
7:07 pm
because of what has been happening in syria in western iraq in parts of th the arabian peninsula, we have seen a quite a bit of al qaeda activity. so i believe that there is a threat out there. certainly to united states interests in the globe. whether that threat would extend to another attack on our homeland, i think that would be harder to say. lou: turning quickly if we may to russia, and its continued advance of its interest, whether it be annexation of crimea or threats, against further threats again eastern ukraine, vladimir putin seems committed to bringing in more resources if not territory these are highly
7:08 pm
valuable resources in the black sea, what are your thoughts about the response of europe? which has basically been nonexistent. and threat of obama administration when that been frankly without prospect it seems of reversing the actions of putin? >> what has been done so far, has not persuadeed mr. putin to withdraw from crimea. i don't think that -- i don't think anything that we're like looking to do could achieve that. but i think what has to happen now steps to defer the russians from going further. into eastern ukraine. we have to maintain threat of fur sanctions, if the elections for president on 2 25 of may are disrupted. and i think we also have to offer more assistance to the
7:09 pm
government of ukraine, particularly military. so they are in a better position to defend themselves. lou: john negroponte, ambassador, thank you. >> thank you. lou: the fbi today announced law enforcement agencies have arrested more than 90 hacker accused of infectioning half a million computers worldwide with malicious spy software. the malware, called black shades, allows hackers to gain control of two people's computers and was famously used to take tphaoud pictures of a former miss teen usa threw your wehebwebcam last year. >> and a 30 case of mers in this country, an illinois man who came in contact with the first mers case has contracted the virus. the illinois man had a 40 minute business meeting with an infected patient in indiana. who contracted the virus after visiting saudi arabia.
7:10 pm
the good news is that the third victim did not actually get sick. and appears to have developed antibodies to fight mers. and, of course, the bad news is that the virus may be able it spread from human-to-human, contact a lot easier than thought. we're coming right back with much more, stay with us. >> explosive new revelations at the vaure or government a failure to care for the heroes worsens by the day. congressman kevin brady on the scandal next.
7:11 pm

7:12 pm
7:13 pm
lou: the white house in damage control following a report it was informed more than 5 years ago that veterans affairs
7:14 pm
hospitals were reporting inaccuracies wait times. va officials in 2008 told obama/biden transition team, that this is not only a data integrity issue, where veterans hetration reports unreliable preliminary data. it afantastics -- looking at va budget not a matter of funds, department's budget under president obama has grown from $97 billion in 2009 to $136 billion last year. va scandal spreading to state of new mexico and also west virginia. with new allegations of delayed care. my next guest is one of 23 texas congressmen who have asked va inspector general to investigate
7:15 pm
altered wait times at 3 fundaments in the state -- facilities in the state of texas, congressman kevin brady, good to have you with us. let me start with, have you had any response to your letter? >> no, unfortunately we've not. you know, i worry that this will get lost amid the scandals in arizona. what we're seeing in the country. what we do know if from whistle-blowers, these are serious allegations in san antonio, and austin and waco, we think they stkefr immediat desee attention, the thought that any veteran would die on a wait list and their information is hidden from data, to make it look positive just so disgusting. so -- we're hopeful we get an knowary soon. lou: you know, i have to say,
7:16 pm
the san antonio facility, i have happen to have been able to go to that va hospital, i have to tell you, i don't think it should get lost in all of this what incredible care the va hospitals are providing to literally hundreds of thousands of our veterans, and i have to say i have never been so impressed by any hospital anywhere it the technology that was brought to bear for those who had suffered traumatic brain injury, and grievace burn woun wounds. it is just extraordinary, to think this was happening in the same system is to me, it is mind boggling. >> well, thank you for makeing that points, i think that gets lost here, you know in the houston region, and local va clinic in conconroe, texas, they
7:17 pm
get great cares, the ber crease is in the -- bureaucracy is in the wait times in a simple decision or on an appeal. jemy thought of general shinsek, everyone, in a military career, he has seen first hand the result of this war, veterans who are aging andnese these services, i don't understand why of all people he did not exercise his command at the va knowing whenly took office, he took over the agency they were already problem identified with those wait times, nothing apparently got done. lou: you know, congressman it does raise the question, in 2008, transition team for president obama was made aware of this. where were congressional oversight committees and the senate and house, did they know of the same information. >> i doubt they did, i don't
7:18 pm
think ta this would have actually come to light immediately, i do know that members of congress -- i tell you there are some partisan differences, but when it comes to military and our veterans s frankly we'll spend every dime it takes to give them the care they need, i am convinced this was not known by the committees, i don't understand why it has been allowed to fester for 5 long years, in what if anything, is the white house going to do about it? >> the fact that the president, has not even addressed the issue, you know, one recalls president bush's rack whe reactn he learns of problem, it was immediate, he was vocal it was dealt with. >> there were, as you know there were problem in walter reed, and heads rolled there was immediate action and a full court press to fix it, this is not just in
7:19 pm
texas, not just in phoenix, so, i don't understand why the president is note leading the charge right now, the tension on secretary shinseki but that alone will not solve the problem. president needs to lead as well. lou: thank you congressman. we appreciate it. >> thank you, lou. lou: let's take a look at last night's -- well last friday's on-line poll results. we asked if you believe that republican party will win back control of the senate in midterm elections? 87% said yes, 13% said no. vote in tonight's poll, do you believe that republican party is adequately focused on the working men and women of the country and our middle class? to succeed in the midterm elections? cast your vote at later we'll reveal the quote of the evening. >> weekend box office, godzilla with a monster debut, 93 million
