"fox & friends" starts right now on a sunday. good morning. ♪ >> good morning, everybody, thanks for getting up early and tuning in. we're happy to be joined again by tucker carlson in for the vacationing dave briggs. >> thanks for having me. >> alisyn: and peter johnson. >> thank you both. >> alisyn: there's so much to tell you about what's going on in middle east and the u.s. telling the americans in sudan
3:02 am
and tunisia it's time to get out. tensions are still high following the violent protests and attacks we've seen all week and sudan rejected the u.s. request to send in marines for extra security. >> greg palkot is live in tunisia with the latest, greg? >> reporter: hey, gang, and this is one the of the two countries affected by that state department order which for today is first full day that it can go into effect. what it's basically saying is that family members and all nonessential personnel working in and around the u.s. embassy here should leave the country as soon as possible and also any americans here should use extreme caution. the officials had a we've been speaking to on the ground certainly do sound cautious. this appears to be precautionary, definitely is a response to friday's attack on the u.s. embassy in tunis, tunisia. thousands of protesters
3:03 am
outside the the embassy wall, some scaled the wall and when they got in, set fires, looted, smashed windows. staf that attack, but four protesters were killed, 50 injured. since then what we've been seeing on the ground since we've been here is it a show of force from the tunisia military and multiple armored personnel carriers outside the wall and no evidence since then. tunisia is a relatively western place, and the birthplace of the arab spring. still, there are bad outlooks out there. and they are leading these, these troubling things that we have seen on the ground here in tunisia. meanwhile, here in tunisia we're right next door to libya where a lot of u.s. focus is right now, what has become a terror manhunt for those who
3:04 am
are responsible for the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. the fbi has been telling us in the past couple days, their investigation is underway and apparently still underway outside of libya. tensions and security situation is still too difficult in there to put a full team of fbi investigators on the ground according to reports. they're closed about this. what we can confirm. u.s. navy destroyers in the air and aerial drones and they're doing everything they can to try to begin this investigation. what is a very difficult and dangerous landscape. back to you. >> alisyn: greg palkot. thank you so much for that update. let's talk about the military situation in terms of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in where she outlined all of the attacks leading up
3:05 am
to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. on the 18th, attacked and burned the flag and on the 6, even the red cross building was struck. and building toward crescendo which led to the death of the ambassador. and this attack that ended in the death of four americans were repelled by 15 minutes none of who apparently killed. so an armed force comes to the consulate and none of the guards were killed, either
3:06 am
means they're in ka hoots or they fled. >> alisyn: why weren't we having warning signs? it was woefully inaccurate and far below the levels you usually see at the embassies. there weren't marines, apparently four video cameras and those were supposed to be working, what otherwise guards would be doing. why were we ignoring those warning signs. >> we now understand that consulate was not offered even what seems to be the standard security in high risk consuls and embassies that the united states has around the world and that includes no low refile armored vehicles, the vehicles that have the tires that will continue to operate even if they're shot out. and other security measures were not there on the ground. general jack keane commented on the security that was missing here on fox. >> there's been a pattern of
3:07 am
attacks all through the summer. so we have a pat he tern of specific aggressive attacks and finally, our consulate is attacked. now, that's a movement that's doing that and that is coordinated. i don't think any film, even 9/11 maybe the day they chose to do it because of its significance, but that's certainly people who are out of power, there are moderates in power in libya, they want it undermine that government and foreign powers assisting that government are the target. common sense will tell you that our security for that ambassador and that consulate was totally inadequate. and after we do that assessment and we're putting the proper security in place, rest assured whatever it looks like 30 days from now is what it should have been. >> alisyn: you know with the turmoil throughout the world and all the different countries this morning, but that raises the question as to whether or not now is a good time for the military cuts that are looming because of
3:08 am
the sequestration. you remember there was a deal baked into the deal, the president couldn't come up with the right formula, budget cuts and tax increases, however to figure out to reduce the debt, that there would be military cuts and that now seems to be an issue on the forefront because of all of this. >> it's looking at 9 or 10% cuts in terms of discretionary spending and other spending with regards to military expenditures and congressman allen west is condemning the obama administration for its lassitude in letting this go forward. >> let's hear what congressman west said in the g.o.p. weekly address. >> that the president for you, the commander-in-chief of our armed forces will sit idle and do nothing. it's shameful. its irresponsible and wrong, dead wrong. >> in your nomination acceptance speech you stated your role was to have the
3:09 am
strongest military the world has ever known. you've proven this promise to the american people is nothing more than empty rhetoric. your determination to allow sequestration proves your words are as hollow as your desires to hollow out our military. all of this is a bargaining chip to raise taxes. for the shake of our country, and our future, i hope you will do the right thing, sir, and work with us to eliminate this threat so we can confront the brave threats of freedom around the globe to us, to our allies. >> i think, i mean, at the core of that is a millipoint which this is a bargaining chip to raise taxes. you're not going to see cuts on budget after this happened. congress won't allow that. >> let's hope not. >> it's very hard to imagine even under any circumstances that happening after this. and so, what happens in exchange, and democrat will use this as a bargaining chip
3:10 am
in order to raise taxes, i think that colonel west is right. >> alisyn: does the president hold the cards or congress? where are they in terms of meeting in the middle. or does the president, can he -- it was one swoop of a pen or one announcement makes the sequestration go away? >> in the end, congress, constitutionally. and it's a legislative matter and congress has to settle it. as of today, there will not be be a meaningful compromise before the election and this will be hammered out in the lame duck. >> alisyn: meanwhile, the get your headlines, a lot of other news to tell you about. overnight four n.a.t.o. members killed in another insider attack by afghan police officer. n.a.t.o. has not released the nationality of the troops killed. at least 51 troops have been killed in insider attacks. disturbing new details on an attack on an n.a.t.o. base that killed two marines. the attackers wore u.s. army
3:11 am
uniforms when they attacked. all, but i should say, one of the insurgents were killed in the attack. the taliban says it was revenge for the film mocking the prophet muhammad. and the fbi arrested another home grown terrorist. 18-year-old adele dowd is a u.s. citizen, arrested after setting off what he thought was a car bomb outside of chicago bar. and the fbi gave him a fake bomb and watched him pull the trigger, a he e-mail account tipped the feds off and he expressed an interest in terror plots in the u.s. and overseas and dowd is expected in federal court on monday. pope benedict held a mass, look at the incredible. a visit to lebanon comes amid
3:12 am
turmoil over anti-american sentiment over the region and he pushed for peace f. and telling syrias, that he admires their courage. those are your headlines. all right, let's go to rick reichmuth for a look how the weather is around the country. >> good morning, very nice day for everybody across the country. the temps as you're waking up. much cooler air moving in across parts of much of new england and around the great lakes and then back, they kind of warmed up again across the northern plains, but that's not going to last for very long. and most of these are looking good. a few quick, light showers across parts of the tennessee valley at least to start the day, but more heavy rain into texas. tell you what, texas getting in on serious rain and some up to eight inches of rain just in this week alone and it's great news and some of the reservoirs need to be rebuilt. but caused flooding.

3:16 am
>> many claim an anti-islam film posted on youtube is to blame for the multiple violent protests that have erupted across the middle east. yesterday the los angeles county sheriff's department took a man thought to be one of the film maker in for questions. hours later the branch in yemen praised the killing of the u.s. ambassador in libya and called for more attacks. how should the moderate muslim community respond to this? joining us the spokesman for
3:17 am
am d.e.a. usa. >> we can only imagine the experience it must be for you, an american-muslim as you watch the violence across the world that pits americans against muslims. how do you make sense of this? >> you're right, it's incredibly frustrating being right in the middle i feel allegiance to america and to islam and to see both sides attacking each other, but fortunately the the question how to respond has been answered by the countless muslims who have come out to condemn the violence and the protests in libya by the people. and this is a vicious cycle, muslims are provoked and react with unjust phiable. and for that community. that's part of our dna under
3:18 am
the guidance of our worldwide khalifa we've been for over a century, muslims that believe in the messiah, we believe that extreme muslims can be reined in, reverting back to the original teachings of islamic that's clearly been forgotten. but the film depicts the prophet in nefarious ways. although they're legally allowed to produce such media there needs to be a testing of the limits of free speech. >> alisyn: now, it was heartening to see some of the the posters held up, that said we're with america. chris stevens was a friend, but it doesn't seem to be doing enough and your community speaking out, the mo moderates.
3:19 am
why aren't your sentiments taking root more? >> this is a two-way road. free speech shouldn't be considered unfettered. even here there are hate laws, defamation laws, free speech shouldn't be considered unfettered. at the same time muslims need to learn how to respond to such instances and i'll speak to this community, our khalifa repeatedly taught us how to respond, not only to turn to god, but respond with a pen. and our response should convey the blessed model of the prophet muhammad, who himself said differences of opinion are a blessing in society and provided special protection to christians and emissarieemissar and muslims must respond with reasons to such depraved acts. and in order to finally eradicate this behavior. >> alisyn: and be as vocal as

weapons. >> we're being shot at a lot now in the middle east, general. what can your understanding of the cold war, what can your experience teach us about dealing with extremists in the middle east. dealing with the challenges that we're facingty very moment? >> not much. maybe patience because the cold war lasted 40-plus years and this is going to last at least that long or longer, but the soviets have a lot to lose so they can be deterred. these guys don't have much to lose, no territory to defend, no assets that are worth anything, maybe not even a life you know, worth living. they can't be deterred. they'll have to be defeated and that's a lot harder. >> alisyn: well, general, thanks so much. it's hangar flying.

3:47 am
u.s. economy? >> yeah, it is capable of doing so, but by virtue of doing the opposite of what it's attempting to do right now. quantitative easing is very basic and it's the process whereby the dollar is devalued. in a weak economy, this is the exact way to make the economy weaker and the reason is simple. when they have new companies to create jobs on future income groups, so for the fed to engage in activity. the investments create jobs and growth to not invest in new companies, because if you do, you'll get back dollars that are severely devalued. the fed is greatly reducing economic growth and actions. so it's a counterproductive strategy and yet, some say the fed is undertaking it because it's the the handiest way to reduce the burden of the debt. simply create inflation, think there's anything to that?

>> well, historically there is something to that. one way that the government defaulted without seizing payment is to devalue the currencies that their debt pays out. think what egan jones did. it was logical. treasuries pay out dollars, the federal reserve with the express consent of the white house is devaluing the dollar through quantitative easing and based on that only logical to devalue the debt we're paying out because the dollars are worth less and less. >> and you may have seen the economic forum downgrade the united states from the most competitive nation in the world, ranking in 2008 when this president was elected and now number seven behind countries like finland, sweden, switzerland. does this surprise you? >> no, not as much. clearly we're putting up barriers from economic growth. from the health care angle and again, i'm one of the dollar people, i think the biggest
3:49 am
driver of our economic malaise is a weak dollar and again, the reason for that is you're devaluing the income streams that bring investors into the marketplace to begin with. if you look throughout history look at zimbabwe, germany, germany between the wars, it's the country that devalues, you can't devalue your way to prosperity and it's the rich companies that main strain a strong currency like england, like the u.s. historically. >> thanks, john. not so fast, ahmadnejad. one man demanding the iranian's hotel room booked tore his upcoming visit to the u.n. he's here to tell us why. and a major mix-up at a stay tuned. teachers sending a kindergartener home with a stranger and that boy and his mom tell us about their frightening ordeal.

looks the at itself, the way the world looks at it the if i'm reaching out to the muslim world they understand that i've lived in a muslim countries and i may be a christian, but i i also understand their point of view. i think the world will have confidence that i am listening to them and that, that our future and our security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world. that will ultimately make us safer and that's something that this administration has failed to understand. >> alisyn: it's pretty-- >> we can say with certainly, the president does not have a self-esteem problem. elect me and the world will change. this is a childish policy, that you could charm yourself into the good graces of world when countries act in their perceived interest. they don't attack because of the personalities of the leaders. it has nothing to do whether

4:07 am
and goes on with how we're perceived in the muslim world, whether or not there's been any sort of reconciliation. >> peter: it's possible the perception is less important than we think it is. you're seeing the same line from the white house that you heard from the president in 2007. they're annoyed, that's why they're killing our citizens and they didn't like the video. no, there are much larger forces going on here. the ruler is dead and it's a power struggle. the idea that a video incited this is truly a sort of playground understanding of the way the world works. >> peter: in terms of confidence, the president said he's going to instill confidence the muslim world was going to have in united states. it was never going to work. >> exactly, very naive. >> alisyn: i think to many voters it was plausible.

>> good morning, again everyone. thanks so much for joining us, i'm delighted to be joined by peter johnson, jr. and tucker carlson. >> glad to be here. >> alisyn: thank you both on this intense weekend. in fact, we want to start this hour with a fox news alert. because the u.s. is telling americans in sudan and tunisia, it's time to get out. >> state department ordered all nonessential staff to leave the embassy in sudan and rejected u.s. requests to send in marines. the sudanese government will not allow the u.s. to protect the embassy there. >> in tunisia, u.s. officials say local security forces have done a good job responding to attacks so far. still, americans in the country are being encouraged to leave the country immediately. and to stay away from demonstrationses. >> and then a particularly
5:02 am
disturbing report out today. it's from catherine herridge, our national security correspondent, she published in the warning signs missed, in benghazi. apparently four other attacks leading up to it. there was one on june 5th in which an ied was thrown at the perimeter of the u.s. consulate. and then, the british ambassador's motorcade came under attack by an rpg. >> june 18th, gunman attacked a consulate and burned a flag on august 6th and even the red cross building in benghazi was struck by rpg's and didn't leave any disinterested be observer who believe our americans were sitting ducks at that consulate. and by the way, in the face of this evidence in sudan and the fact in libya, the fact that the sudanese government is
5:03 am
preventing u.s. marines to enter the country to protect our own embassy. not to invade sudan, but protect americans in american embassy is american soil, and the fact that we're standing for it. >> peter: it's a puniercolating issue and based on the lack of relationship that we now understand that we have. >> tucker: we're the united states government, the most powerful in the history of the world and trying to protect our citizens on our own soil. >> peter: and the consulate and embassy is supposed to be our sovereign soil and we know that as well as anybody and it's outrageous. >> we're being reactive instead of proactive. why didn't we have marines based at the consulate as we do at embassies, given the history we now know these four attempted attacks, actually effective attacks on our consulate. why didn't we beef up security? there are some in politico who
5:04 am
say it was woefully inadequate and it's much less that an embassy has been. no reinforced doors, they relied on video cameras, fo for security and heavy marines there, the general was on our show earlier talking about the security problems. >> i mean, it was a pattern of attacks all through summer and so we have a pattern of specific aggressive attacks and finally, our consulate is attacked. now, that is a movement that's doing that and that's coordinated. i don't think any, any film, even 9/11 may be the day they chose to do it because of its significance, but that's certainly people who are out of power. they're moderates in power in libya and they want to unmine the government and foreign powers, are the target. common sense will tell you that our security for that ambassador and that consulate was totally inadequate and after we do that assessment
5:05 am
and putting the proper security in place, rest assured, whatever it looks like 30 days from now is what it should have been. >> and embassies across the world are on high alert. american embassies, the question, why weren't they on high alert before. the saddest line, the way that the embassies look 30 days from now is the way they should have looked this week. >> alisyn: of course, all of this called into question, whether now is the right time for budget cuts to our military. as you know, those are looming because of the sequestration that's happening because democrats and republicans couldn't figure out how to cut, i guess, it's 1.2 trillion from our debt. so that's going to happen. well, colonel allen west gave the g.o.p. weekly address this weekend about those. >> mr. president, for you the commander of chief in our armed forces to sit idle and do nothing while this dark cloud hangs over our military,
5:06 am
it's shameful, it's irresponsible and it's wrong. and it's dead wrong. in your nomination, accept the speech. you stated your goal was to have the strongest military the world has ever known. you have proven this promise to the american people, it's nothing more than empty rhetoric. your determination to allow sequestration proved your words are intolerant as your desire to who will heo out our military and all of this is a bargaining chip to raise taxes. for the sake of our country and our future, i hope you will do the right thing, sir. and work with us to eliminate this threat. so we can confront the brave threats to freedom around the globe for us and for our allies. >> talk about a command presence for the sake of our country and a nonpolitical statement. talking about projected defense spending cuts, about 9.4%. and that will take place if the president does not act. >> not a word mincer. >> not a word mincer, a strong
5:07 am
guy. >> general west for sure. is there any indication, tucker, that the president and congress will somehow find compromise before the sequestration and the cuts have to happen. doesn't sound like it's close. >> it doesn't. and my belief, this could change, as of right now given what we see last week, the u.s. ambassador murdered, very hard for anybody to sneak cuts like this through. i don't think that the public would put up with it. >> and part of those cuts are 129 million dollars for embassy security. >> it's just hard,it's hard to imagine. i think the president would like to see it, but i don't think it could happen. >> meanwhile, we do have other headlines for you and we have a fox news alert right now because there's another insider attack overnight by afghan police officers, that have left four troops dead and local officials saying they are americans. the shooting happened in a southern check point in afghanistan. at least 51 troops have been killed in insider attacks just this year. meanwhile, disturbing new

5:15 am
of fox news sunday, the incomparable chris wallace, good morning, chris, how are you? >> hi, guys. >> there's a lot going on. let's start with the first question, should the state department should have had a stronger security presence in libya? what is washington saying about that? and is it along political lines? >> well, yeah, i suppose to some degree, the administration is certainly saying that they had taken all security precautions that seemed reasonable at the time and escalated beyond anything it could have foreseen. i'll ask that question at the top of the hour to the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, who is going to be the administration spokesman today on that issue, and the whole question. one of the other things i want to ask, you know, you showed those anti-american demonstrations across the middle east, asia, north africa, and we've heard jay carney on friday say this has nothing to do with the obama administration policies
5:16 am
because of that video. i'm going to ask ambassador rice about that. >> and "vanity fair" has a story this month that describes ambassador rice as passionately advocating on behalf of the intervention in libya. is there a sense in the white house that maybe the arab spring and that would include what mapped in libya, has back fired? >> well, i don't know. and it's a perfectly legitimate question. i'm not sure that they really had a choice in this, tucker, i mean, you had hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people in the streets across the middle east, and especially in tahrir square in cairo, isn't something, someone that, that the authorities, the dictatorships in those countries could control, let alone the united states of america, so you know, to a certain degree, i think we were, we were bystanders. now, one could argue whether or not we managed the transition as effectively as we could, but i'm not sure
5:17 am
that we could have propped hosni mubarak up, and the danger of doing so and failing might have made anti-american feelings stronger in that part of the world. >> alisyn: chris, do we have any sense how all of this violence will affect our presidential election back here? >> well, you know, obviously, this has not been a good week for the obama administration. the president leads, according to the polls, when it comes to questions of foreign policy over mitt romney, but when you see u.s. embassies, u.s. fast food restaurants, american schools across the middle east in flames, and climbing the walls, makes you wonder about u.s. policy. having said that we're in mid september. you know, what's going to happen over the next eight weeks, we'll have to wait and see and see how the two are going to handle it. obviously, whether fairly or unfairly, mitt romney came under a lot of heat this week when he seemed to make

5:24 am
president of people and asked for the civil rights. and what we're looking at, as we're going into the age of obama is an idea, an idea of economics, economic rights. but, unfortunately, we're still waiting for those rights to come. so, therefore, my book "jumping the aisle" is saying, hey, let's look at that more closely and evaluating where are we looking at as we look at independents, economic choice, things that will be able to help. >> if i'm mitt romney and running against the first black president in american history, but i want african-american voters, what's my pitch? what would work? >> i think the republican party and mitt romney need to address how is the republican platform shrinking the widening gap between the haves and the have notes.

5:44 am
morning, rabbi, how are you. >> i'm well, how are you? >> thanks for getting up with us, let's talk about rosh hashanah and the new year and explains what it means for the the jewish community in america. >> well, it represents two sort of linked ideas. one is the day on which the world was created. that sense it's different from secular new year because it celebrates the creation of the world, but it also begins this period of self-reflection that leads to the day of atonement, yom kippur. and i guess you might think that the holidays are reversed, you should first repent and then celebrate the new year, but the idea behind it is that rosh hashanah allows you to appreciate the wonder and majesty and mystery of creation. once you've done that, then you can understand and appreciate whatever you've done to make creation better or to make it worse and so,
5:45 am
you feel your repen tense in a deeper way. >> peter: and during that time you hear the phrase-- >> that means to a good year, a moral and ethical component here. so, you wish people not only a happy and a healthy year, but also a year of goodness, which means a year in which we will learn to treat each other more kindly and more gently. >> peter: and very often our friends talk about the sweetness of the new year. what's the derivation of the the sweetness of the new year in the jewish faith. >> there's a beautiful custom dipping an apple in honey which represents the sweetness of the year in the same way that under the wedding canopy you have the couple share a cup of wine, which also represents the sweetness of life together. because ultimately, judaism, even though it's very well aware of the difficulties and
5:46 am
pain and anguish of life, sees life as something as beautiful and faithful and blessed and sweet. >> peter: during this time of renewal and then reflection with yom kippur, it's also a time of turmoil in the middle east, we have events going on in iran and events where americans have been killed. how did that affect the jewish community in the united states and what are the thoughts of your community as we face this as americans together? >> well, it's certainly, as both an american and a jew, the turmoil in general is disquieting and problematic. i mean, in some ways it feels as though things like the video are used as recruitment tools to gin up the the hate and resentment of the west in general and the united states and israel in particular.
5:47 am
but much more problematic and much more frightening even than what's going on in places like libya and yemen, is what's going on iran because if you think about it, in the 20th century there were two horrific red lines, things that you should no longer cross. one with auschwitz, which represents the attempt to destroy the jewish people and the other is hiroshima which represents the cataclysmic weapon that the world should never have again. if you iran gets that, the threat to wipe out an entire people and also with this horrendous weapon, it's true-- >> all the people in america pray on the eve of rosh hashanah that it doesn't happen. >> it's a threat not only to israel, but also to the united states and the west and something we should take extremely seriously. >> peter: and i believe that we should and we will, rabbi. so, we wish you well and say

5:53 am
s time goes on more and more brave teachers, are some that made my life heck. absolutely, but if me coming forward has inspired others coming forward, it's worth it. >> and christy i guess it's conventional or counter intuitive what you're saying, because the public school teachers want the protection that the unions have to offer in terms of not being able to be fired. tenure, or your pension, et cetera. so, why do you disagree so vehemently with what the judge has decided? >> okay, well, first of all, there's already laws in the state of wisconsin that protect me from being fired for no reason. and already laws i get to work in a place that is safe, you know, emotionally and physically, so, what the union is offering, i'm already protected from. and also, as far as seniority. there's no reason to think that just because somebody wakes up every morning for 50 years that they deserve to have a raise. and that's ridiculous. it takes, you know,
5:54 am
competition, it takes accountability, really, to have all of us rise to the challenge of teaching, and so, i disagree with that. plus, i don't see the union actually doing any of those things. i see them, you know, using union dues and actually extorting union dues and using them for their own political activities ap pushing for social agendas. at this point so many of us have chosen to leave the union and joined a professional association, if i can put a plug in for the association of american educators, it's a real association that treats us like professionals we are not laborers. and i get double the liability insurance and don't have to deal with the politics. how can i get my kids into your class? and before you answer that, let me read a statement, i'm sure you're familiar with it, from governor scott walker about this decision this week and i'm quoting. sadly, a liberal activist judge wants to go backwards
5:55 am
and take away the law making responsibility and the governor. and we're confident that the state will prevail in the contest. are you confident that the state will prevail? >> oh, absolutely. this is not new for wisconsin and you know, madison is like the liberal bubble that is surrounded by reality and it's not the first time that we've had legislators on the bench so i was very confident once that law is put through the appeals, it will up-- it will stand, it will stand. there's nothing in our state constitution that collective bargaining is a right. it's a privilege extend today public employees, it's not a right. and what governor walker has done for schools we're seeing districts making positive changes. the world hasn't ended since act 10 was made law. >> alisyn: wow, christy, you're a wisconsin public school teacher and you must

6:02 am
we also sent some time across the street and maybe more shocking was found in the american school, a school for ex-pats, kids, that is foreigners living in tunisia, including americans, 650 kids there, 100 americans, and about noon time in that school, they were playing on the playground, relaxing and they were having fun and then the administrators got word that right across the street, what was going on at the u.s. embassy and they decided to send the kids home, a good thing, by 2:30, that entire school was ransaked and burnt out, it could have been a very tragic scene. thank goodness the americans there, including eczex- marines got the job done. >> alisyn: terrible, we are looking at the aftermath, thanks for the update. >> please be safe, very perilous assignment and, almost an american school taken out with
6:03 am
children. >> tucker: and the fact there is an american school there, tells you a lot about tunisia, it is not somalia or sudan, it is a pretty stable country. >> alisyn: look back at when president obama was candidate barack obama and how he had high hopes and obviously the voters did, as well, who voted for him, if he were elected president things with the arab world would change. people would embrace the u.s., more, because he, himself, had lived in an arab country when he was a teenager or an adolescent and remember what barack obama said in 2007. and listen: >> president barack obama: i truly believe the day i'm inaugurated, not only does the country look at itself differently but the world looks at america differently. if i'm reaching out to the muslim world, they understand that i've lived in a muslim country. i may be a christian, but, i also understand their point of view. i think that the world will have confidence that i am listening to them. and, that our future and our
6:04 am
security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world. that will ultimately make us safer. and that is something that this administration has failed to understand. >> the american people will have to judge whether or not we're safer and whether the muslim world has more confidence in america or less after almost four years of president obama. but, when you start to look at the facts, in terms of what is going on, in the country, country buy country in northeast it is a disturbing picture. start with pakistan and usama bin laden had safe haven there for five years and now, the pakistani insurgent who helped america and the cia bring him to justice is in jail. at the same time, receiving 2-plus billion dollars, in aid, every year from the united states. >> alisyn: in case you need a remind of afghanistan, 2,000-plus u.s. troops have been killed in afghanistan. and of course the government, under president karzai has been uncooperative, at best, corrupt,
6:05 am
many say, and, of course, many afghans still openly support the taliban. >> tucker: iran, which of course the president was going to mollify, by having direct negotiations, with their leadership, continues to defy the united states and the world, by continuing its nuclear development, denying israel's right to exist and, in general, proving a menace on th stage. >> alisyn: and look at egypt. where all of this began on september 11th, with protests in front of the embassy, the muslim brotherhood, now controls the government, anti-american protests are common and we have been talking about how much aid they received, 1.6 billion a year. and, libya. >> libya, four americans dead including an ambassador, at least, two navy s.e.a.l.s and, the government that probably can't protect americans in the long run, you really wonder, you say with all of these promises and all the optimism and the hope and the challenge for the future, especially, in the relationship to what the president obama had said about the bush administration, and how
6:06 am
they had bolloxed foreign policy in the world and to see our foreign policy in such a disastrous date in september, is disturbing. >> tucker: looking at then candidate obama from the winter of '07 makes the case to sum it up, touch the help of my garment and you will be healed. that is not foreign policy. no. it is not, the president is one man in the oval office does not change the world's view or posture toward america. and it is somewhat more complicated. >> unfortunately, it has not. >> alisyn: yes, we have a lot more about this and to think about it, we'd love to hear your comments, you can find us all at twitter, and, we would like to read some of those later and we want to get to your headlines, a lot happening now, including this "fox news alert." afghan officials reporting four american troops were killed in an insider attack, by afghan police officers, overnight. the shooting happened at a remote checkpoint in southern afghanistan, at least 51 troops

have been killed, in insider attacks, this year alone. meanwhile, disturbing new details about the attacks on a nato base, that killed two marines, the taliban fighters, wore us army uniforms, and all but one insurgent was killed and the taliban said it was a revenge for the film mocking the muslim prophet mohammed and that is, of course, also around the middle east. a homegrown terrorist is nabbed. adele dowd was arrested after trying to set off a car bomb and he was a u.s. citizen and he was given a fake bomb and they were tipped off to his interest in terror plots by an e-mail account and is expected to be in federal court on monday. pope benedict xvi holds a mass in beirut for hundreds of thousands of people, the three-day visit to lebanon comes amid the anti-american protest

6:09 am
apologized, to taylor's family but his mom plans to meet with the principal to find out how it could happen. those railroare your headlines. let's check in with rick reichmuth, how your weather ill be today. >> rick: we have rain coming in and good news, because of the drought going on, it has been across the central part of the country is the heaviest drought and because of isaac, a relief for missouri and illinois, because of that and there has been more rain the last week or so, and there is more on the way. look at what is going to happen, not necessarily missouri, but go farther east, tennessee and kentucky, maybe ohio as well over the next few days, they'll see 3-6 inches of rain, a big bull's-eye and that will help, again with the drought. which is great. now a little bit of rain across parts of the mid-atlantic, the heaviest is in across areas of texas and that is around the hill country, down toward the big bend and that will continue to fall, slightly move off
6:10 am
towards the east and that will be a big rain maker for much of the eastern seaboard, by tuesday, get ready for that and meanwhile, rain across parts of the the far northern plains which will drop temperatures, eventually part of a cold front, a potent one that will down across areas of the plains the next couple days and drop the temperatures, tomorrow, minneapolis, your temperatures drop 20° and the cold air will spread to the east coast along with the rain by tuesday. back to you. >> alisyn: thank you so much, rick. all the international tumult eclipsed our own presidential campaign that is going on, back here. but, the candidates are still hitting the trail and let's look at the latest poll numbers. this one, is the latest rasmussen poll, and rasmussen was the most accurate back in 2008 and this one, now, it contradicts, tucker, polls that have president obama in the lead and that one, with rasmussen has
6:11 am
romney in lead to. >> tucker: and it's an election not waged nationally, big states, big -- we know how california and new york will go, so 12 states we consider battleground states and, in ten out of 12 of those, the president has leads, some of which are narrow and some of which aren't. >> a lot within the margin of error. but not as pronounced as rasmussen's poll which had mo romney ahead. >> tucker: the question is, is this a hangover from the convention, at charlotte? is it part of the fabled bounce the incumbent received? or, is it not? and we have a ways to go, before the election. >> alisyn: so, congressman paul ryan has been hitting the stump and he's one -- at one of the battleground states in florida and is keeping the message on his strong suit, the economy and the budget. let's listen: >> and, just yesterday, we heard
6:12 am
that the federal reserve is coming up with a new bailout. this matters. so, the federal reserve is basically saying that we don't have a recovery, obama-nomics didn't work and now they are coming with their bailout. here is the problem: we don't need sugar-high economics. we don't need synthetic money creation. we need economic growth. we want health creation. we don't want to print money, we want opportunity and growth. and when they do this to our money it undermines the credibility of our money. >> alisyn: why do you think the message is playing better in battleground states? >> tucker: well i think it could. it is interesting. i have been on the road and i noticed the federal reserve stuff, you think people aren't paying attention be a don't k-- and don't know what the fed is and does and it goes off as a massive applause line and people are interested in monetary policy and it is a shock and

6:18 am
operations, drones, whatever it is, the people who did this and are associated with it need to be killed and the world needs to know about it. we need to reassert our strength that this will not happen to americans and geopolitically i think we need to show we'll stand by our allies and, a great place to start there would be iran, making it clear, that they cannot push further into nuclear development and we're going to stand by the israelis if they needed to do what they need to do. >> alisyn: that sounds really effective but when you look at the map from today, of how many countries are inflamed right now with anti-american sentiment, do we have the military resources to quell all of this? >> it's not about quelling all of that. these protests that exist, that is a whole other question, you are not killing people for protest, we are talking about a direct attack that took american lives, that is where you need challenge and confront and pro tests are part of a larger problem, the administration, equivocated and rationalized and apologized and, there are people
6:19 am
in that part of the world who wish to do us harm, because we are americans, not this or last administration, our freedom is what they don't like and until we acknowledge that and our foreign policy does, we will exhibit weakness and weakness invites challenge. >> peter: in order to maintain a stronger defense, you need money and there are defense cuts looming as you know you know at the end of the year unless something is done, billions will be cut from pentagon budget, here's congressman, former colonel, alan west on those cuts. >> i cannot understate the amount of damage these cuts would do to our military. they would essentially hollow out our armed forces. what that means, we would have the smallest ground force since 1940, the smallest navy since 1915 and the smallest tactical fighter force, in the history of the modern united states air force. >> tucker: the smallest army since -- since before the second world war, and the smallest navy since before the first world war and we're still involved around the world, obviously in iraq and
6:20 am
afghanistan. could we continue our current commitments, at those levels, do you think? >> at some point it becomes difficult. i -- it is hard to add to what the good colonel said. these are across-the-board cuts, and, you can reform it, you do not need to chop it. this is on top of the $16 trillion in debt we're going to eventually have to pay back at some point. and, then you see series of things coming from washington, right now, that show we don't have our fiscal house in order, which, ultimately, our military is underpinned by a strong economy. and, if we are chopping our defense department, without reforming it, and, oh, by the way, what is the biggest driver of our debt and deficit, entitlement programs like medicare and medicaid and social security we have not actually been willing to reform. >> alisyn: pete, of concerned veterans for america, thanks for coming out. >> thank you. >> alisyn: mayor bloomberg is busted giving city staffers raises while others may be losing their jobs to close a budget gap.

geologists kept finding evidence for a longer history of the world, and a more complicated history, than a creation and than a single flood but a lot of things happened ine the earth's history that were not mentioned in the bible and, you can point to christian theology as having shamed the development of geology and, geological discoveries, actually, then, influenced the development of christian theology, in later centuries. >> peter: david montgomery, author of "the rocks don't lie", for people of faith and of science, thank you for this illumination on this sunday morning to give us a lot to think about and to be hopeful for. thank you, professor. >> thank you, it was a pleasure. >> peter: a yard sale for re-election. wait until you hear the details on the obama campaign's latest fund-raising drive and it is coming to your garage. plus...

6:45 am
amid the turmoil in the middle east. >> peter: joining us now is fox news palestiniolitical analyst y beast columnist, kirsten powers. thanks for coming on. there has been a lot of drama between the administration and religious groups in the united states, over the past year, over questions like contraception, and whether it be covered by insurance. all of a sudden you hear the administration making a kind of curious case, that they are for religious freedom and that is why we ought to somehow sympathize with the people demonstrating in the middle east. do you notice the irony? >> well, it's not even just religious freedom, it is actually, it is utterly ep pre-hencible to say -- reprehensible to say something mean about someone's religion whis is fascinating for me to learn, when "the davinci code" was made, which had jesus having sex with mary magdalene and christians had burned down dan
6:46 am
brown's home, would the administration have said, you shouldn't have burnt the house down, but really it is wrong to say bad things about other people's religion. no, of course not, because nobody would say in the country it is okay to engage in an act of violence, because you insulted jesus, right? but that is essentially what they are doing in every, single statement they put out, they link the movie with the violence as if it is a justification or an explanation when we know, in fact that that is not even what caused -- and as you talked about, the libyan ambassador, simply, it was not what caused the violence in libya. >> alisyn: and it is interesting, isn't it, that is the news that is breaking at this hour, that the libyan president says that he has no doubt that this was a pre-planned, coordinated attack, he believes, from foreigners, we don't know if he is using that as political cover for himself but that flies in the face of what jay carney, the white house press secretary says where they had no doubt that it was a
6:47 am
reaction to the ridiculous youtube video. why did jay carney say that unequivocally? >> ambassador rice said the same thing on fox news sunday. it is unbelievable they should assert such a thing. it is common sense people don't show up to the american embassy on 9/11 with heavy weaponry, and, the idea that it wasn't planned is just so completely absurd. and, honestly, even these, you know, people also don't just happen to show up at the cairo embassy, on 9/11. we know that they were riled up. you know, everyone is blaming the filmmaker. without asking the question, i don't know if you have -- you guys watched the film but it is actually in english and had to be dubbed in arabic and had to be given to the imams and they had to tell people to defend their faith. so, how it somehow, the coptic christian's responsibility, who actually, as i understand it,
6:48 am
fled egypt because he was being persecuted, it is his responsibility these people have attacked american embassies, i mean, everything is completely upside-down. >> tucker: yet the coptic christian has been interviewed so far by the fbi and the local police and the white house leaned on google, which owns youtube to take the video down. >> outrageous. outrageous. absolutely outrageous. >> tucker: against the first amendment. >> exactly. the new found disrespect for religion on the left that i find really fascinating. and, that, you know, goes completely against first amendment rights and, i'm sure, tucker, you saw the picture of the guy being taken in by u.s. authorities, to be questioned or interviewed, i guess. and, you know, what is the crime? i understand he had another unrelated, you know, maybe criminal activity, he was on parole, but, that is not why he's being taken in. the fbi an hollywood reporter reported the fbi flew tout to california to find out -- to find the guy. i mean, why is the fbi doing this and why is the fbi not
