tv The FOX Report With Shepard Smith FOX News April 12, 2013 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
as a chair. highest profile to date is joe biden. >> >> this is the fox report. is someone trying to kill the controversial sheriff? you will hear about the packet that was rigged to explode. >> shepard: plus secretary of state john kerry warns north korea test firing a missile would be a huge mistake. >> the rhetoric we are hearing from north korea is simply unacceptable. >> shepard: a missile test expected at any moment. but the white house is playing down reports that the north koreans may have the capability to launch a nuclear attack. >> they have not demonstrated
the capacity to deploy a nuclear armed missile. >> shepard: the attempt to push back north korea from the brink of war. plus a new arrest in conthe murder of the colorado prison shep. a white supremist gang member. what the arrest could mean for the investigation . a guy tries to stab a woman on the bus. passengers tell him to take a hike. first from fox this friday night from north korea. launching a nuclear missile is easier said than done. that is the news from the white house after franklyy alarming report. a report indicated that there is a decent chance that north korea h h has nuclear weapons. but the agency is the one that suggested iraq's saddam
hussein demonstrated chemical weapons . that same agency reported that the iraqis may have weaponized biological warfare agents and there was no reliable information on whether iraq was producing or stock piling weapons . we learned that iraq was not any of the above . the white house doesn't have faith in the intelligence. >> obviously the north koreans have tested nuclear weapons and developed missile technology. but they haven't demonstrated the ability to attach a war head to a miss and i will fire it >> the dictator there kim jong-un threatened to nuke washington. of course, those same analyst warn that north korean could
try to test fire a missile. secretary of state kerry warns the north korean leader that doing so would be a huge mistake. it is confusing and the white house is scrambling to try to explain to us what north korean abilities really are. >> alarm bells went off after a republican congressman read from the defense intelligence agency and the confusion came from the fact that parts of the report are classified and shouldn't be talked about and other parts were unclassified and could be talked about . the congressman said a part of the report said that the u.s. government believed that north korea had nuclear weapons and try to fire at south korea or the u.s.. it seemed to catch general dempsey off guard. >> general, would you agree with that assessment by dia.
>> congressman, with the number of caveats you put on that, i can't touch that one. i am not sure. some is classified and some is not. >> that's why jay carny and other officials in the intelligence committee reassured the public and said there was condepusion but the fact is the government doesn't believe that north korea has nuclear weapons that are capable to be attach to a missile and be launched. >> it sounded like the republicans are down playing the threat? >> it is a problem. but republican analyst are saying a more nuclear threat is iran and they believe that is what the administration should be focusing on. >> he's probably sent a thank you note for kim jong-un thanks for all of the attention on you. i will keep on enriching
uranium. >> iran is moving closer to nuclear weaponings. defense secretary hagel asked. he said both are threats and they could succeed in getting them in the days ahead. they are dangerous and explosive situations. thank you very much. >> shepard: by the way one year and 8 minutes ago we learned that north korea attempted a three stage rocket launch. it fell into the sea and it was a big embarrassment for the brand new north korean leader. here at home a mail bomb was likely powerful enough to kill who ever opened it. that is the latest on the attacks on law enforcement figures. >> joe is the sheriff in
phoenix . there earlier this week the postal service intercepted a pack annual that was leaking gun powder. >> what we are told the latest information was. had someone opened that package, it would have caused a major explosion and caused serious physical injury burns and maybe deaths. >> shepard: they have identified a suspect but did not say who it would be. the sheriff spoke out today, john. >> not surprisingly for a sheriff who made a lot of enemies, he came out fight full of defiance and a promise he will not be intim dated by anyone. >> i am not leaving this office and i am not going what
they do or say, i am staying. i am not surrendering and i will fight and do the job for the people of this county and that's my message again to all of these people. that don't like the sheriff. >> now not being intim dated is not the same as not being concerned and begin all of the attacks recently on law enforcement officialings he does have concern for himself and his family obvious >> shepard: thankfully that package did not make it to his office. >> it was dropped in a rural mailbox in flagstaff, arizona that is north of where sheriff arpaio was based. it had a lot of the postage stamps on it . that indicates who ever was sending it wanted to make sure it got there and didn't want to go to the post office and get it weighed.
he took it on a postal center and noticed gun powder was leaking and called it to the parking lot and did a make safe test . fired a water cannon on it. it did not actually explode at that point . late word tonight they have identified someone they want to talk to, shep. >> shepard: johnathon hunt, thanks. police in colorado arrested another white supremist gang murder in connection with the murder of a prison chief. investigators say a man shot him when he opened the front door. behind me cubo died in a shoot
