2:00 pm
you have lied to them and you'll be worse than any fast food titan. like fast food and the lawyers who chase them, both sides, both sides will make you vomit. hello, everyone. i'm dana perino along with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, eric bolling, and greg gutfield. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five." disturbing news out of afghanistan as president hamid karzai release 65 afghan prisoners who according to the u.s. military are directly linked to the killing or wounding of 32 coalition soldiers. after more than 12 years and over 2,000 u.s. troop deaths, karzai said afghan policy is of no concern to the united states. >> sphthe afghan judicial authorities decide to release a prisoner, it is of no concern to
2:01 pm
the u.s. and should be of no concern to the u.s. and i hope that the united states will stop harassing afghanistan's procedures and judicial authority, and i hope that the united states will now begin to respect afghan sovereignty. >> last night, george will mocked the idea that the prisoners will lead a peaceful life upon their release. >> the afghan government said these gentlemen have gone to their homes, prurmably to wash the car, mow the lawn, and start a small business. if you believe that, that's of no concern to us, but we don't believe that's going to happen. if mr. karzai is so concerned about his sovereignty, there's a large, like a 65% american majority who wish to give him all the sovereignty he wants by leaving. >> they think karzai is a traitor who does not deserve to leave the country with american
2:02 pm
treasure. >> he's been a traitor, he betrayed us, and frankly, i don't think the taliban is going to buy what he's trying to offer. what should we do? he's going to show oup with plan barx, bags of gold, american gold, and he's going to try to get on the last helicopter out of kabul. >> bob, do you think karzai in a way knows that the united states is leaving, therefore, he's decided to try to appeal to his base, which is in his country saying the united states doesn't respect our sovereignty. that probably helps him there, but do you think he is actually trying to look beyond the united states? >> first of all, he's not running for re-election. the other people w are running to re-election, want to sign the security agreement between afghanistan and the united states. yes, he's trying to appeal to his base. the taliban and opium dealers. we put him in power in 2001. he was a crook to begin with. he was a crook throughout. he's been stealing american
2:03 pm
gold. forget american treasure and deaths, a lot of that blood is on his hands. to release these people is treasonous, and the son of a bitch ought to be sent to the hague and tried for war crimes. that's my soft comment. >> the position of the united states is they want and have to sign the agreement, and president obama said there will be several thousand troops to try to keep the peace, but is that even possible in this scenario? >> i would think not. during one of those sound bites, someone from "the five" gave the finger to hamid karzai, but he continues to give the finger back to us. bob is right, he stole hundreds of thousands of u.s. aid going into his bank accounts. his brother is a known opium dealer, war lord. we spent nearly a trillion dollars there over 12 years. there are about 30 million people in afghanistan. most of them live outside of the major cities. most of them live in, you know,
2:04 pm
kind of villages and what not. very poor people. if we were to spend the trillion dollars and give it to the people of afghanistan, it would be about $100,000 per family. $100,000 per three-perm family. can you imagine how much they would love us. >> quite an incentive program. >> and they're still living in poverty and still hate us. whatever we have done, we have done it wrong. let's get out. >> let me get andrea and greg's take on this, because i got this debate last night on with bill o'reilly talking about the purpose and the reason we originally went to afghanistan. >> he is spitting in our face, as you said. in return, what? what is the upside exactly? afghan girls are going to school? that's great, but it's not in our strategic interests. >> some conserves who say the federal government is too confused to run a website, are arguing it has the ability to create a civilized society. >> we shouldn't be building the
2:05 pm
nation. our job was to make sure the taliban wouldn't come back to power. >> greg, the original purpose was, make sure that the taliban doesn't have a safe haven from which to launch terrorist operations. if we leave now, do you think we're going to back on our word to keep that from happening? >> i don't know. i think obama should punish karzai by getting him to enroll in obamacare. they could be misunderstood goat herder, the great news is eric holder is going to make sure they can vote, and they're going to get driver's licenses in new york and california. >> but they won't need those to vote. >> afghanistan is a horrible, horrible place. it's the crazy ex-girlfriend that russia warned us about. ussr in its late 70s were going, why did i get into this relationship? this is awful. then they get out and they say, don't go there. she's nuts. she's going to burn all your ties. it's going to be attract frb at first, but it's going to be a
2:06 pm
mess. what do we do? we go ahead and hook up with the craziest ex-girlfriend of them all. >> not to mention the brits in the 18th century. >> then he throws it back in our face. >> she may have been the least crazy one. i think our troops have done a tremendous job with the resources and the afghans they have had to deal with, and i think they should be proud of what they attempted to achieve there, and i hope all those gains haven't been lost. what do you think? >> it was naive from day one to turn a place like afghanistan into philadelphia on the eve of a constitutional convention with hamid karzai as george washington. i have said this before. they are a bunch of goat herders. why would we create a country that is somehow going to mirror our values when just this week their culture, the afghan parliament, moved legislation that prevents relatives from testifying in domestic violence
2:07 pm
cases, which is covering up for abusers. how are they going to run some civil society? they can barely speak their language. they hate the united states for the most part. so i do think it was naive to try to promote democracy. i think the minute that osama's terrorists went into pakistan, we should have said, okay, we'll see you later. the next time you harbor terrorists that are plotting an attack against the united states, we will come in and we will flatten you. we'll turn you into a parking lot. i frankly don't give a crap if the taliban occupied afghanistan. however, if there are people that are there trying to plot another terror attack, we go in, wipe them out, and we leave. enough spending blood and treasure, human lives. money, on a country that hates us. >> by the way, what was karzai doing in the american war? he was in pakistan as a refugee and then the united states. he never was in the country until we put him in. >> i don't think that's entirely fair. >> the guy on o'reilly said
2:08 pm
we're not there to build roads and schools. >> of course, we did. we built a lot of them. >> a lot of that is people who agree with the surge, which is you can't go in and leave a vacuum. you have to create a society. >> that's a good idea to suggest we didn't do it is not a fair thing to what we did do. >> this is a fun topic. the obama administration is dealing with a little bit of egg on its face because nominees they have made for ambassadorship couldn't really pass the test when they went to the senate. let's take a look at jon stewart's take on it. >> the ambassadors. appointed by our democratic president. surely, he chooses them on their merits. >> have you been to norway? >> have you been to argentina? >> senator, i haven't had the opportunity yet to be there. i have traveled pretty extensively, but i haven't yet had the chance. >> barbara, i take it you have been to iceland? >> sir, i have not had the privilege yet. >> is there a rule ambassadors can't have stepped a foot in the
2:09 pm
country they're going to ambassador. >> every country helps the ambassador, but usually. even if you have a rich donor, they have to be briefed on the basics. >> you would think score points, maybe send them there to see what the locks like before they find out what they're going to be the ambassador to. it's one of the more ridiculous, and both sides do it. one of the more ridiculous things we do is send high donors. people who raise money to get you in office, give them cushy ambassadorships. >> bob, you almost got a cushy ambassadorship in your life. why did you turn it down? >> they did a background check. if i could say, when you say all presidents do it, with all due respect to dana, i have been trying to be nice to george bush on this show, but can i point out, two important allies, canada and australia, bush appointed a south carolina state legislator who gave $200,000 to his campaign to canada, and to
2:10 pm
australia, he appointed lobbyists for rj reynolds tobacco company. it goes both ways. you can make this case all you want. every president you say does it, you can always find these nit-picks, and by the way, to suggest this guy, they want him to say something negative about the country they're going into is something they shouldn't be doing. >> although they should be briefed. >> i couldn't agree with you more. >> they couldn't even name a national interest, couldn't say what the u.s. national interest would be. how about health, peace, and prosperity? >> dana, why should our ambassadors expect to be briefed when we have a president who wasn't briefed on what was happening at the irs, didn't know the security in benghazi needed security. he had no experience being president of the united states as a community organizer, so what does it matter if you nominate some rich guy from nantucket to go to a country he's never been to? what could possibly go wrong, but everything is going really well with the united states. >> greg, does this just prove you can't buy good help anymore?
2:11 pm
>> perhaps. the only expertise needed to pbecome an ambassador is bundling. regan had jellybeans on his desk. these are the jellybeans. you know who deserves this job? people who have had tough jobs. if you get a purple heart, you should also get this job. it should be a military reward, not a reward for getting somebody into office. >> you recognize they all do that? >> absolutely. >> obama did say he was going to tride to increase the ratio to be 70% of the state department civil servants. >> to point out, this thing with the afghanistan peace and with this piece, foreign policy is really, really hard. you get the impression that president obama has a distaste for it, and he treats the presidency like a part-time job that supports his work as a progressive activist in order to remake the world. he also has better, more
2:12 pm
emotionally relevant things to do, like tweeting encouragement to a gay athlete, which is important, but i would think this stuff is more important. >> can i ask a question? do we know how much an ambassador gets paid? some of these ambassadorships, these people are raising $400,000 or $500,000. you bundle that, and you get paid $200,000 a year. >> and they get to pick their own artwork. did you know that? >> a lot of ambassadors -- i know a lot of ambassadors do end up spending some of their own money on their own travel. and some ambassadors have waived their salary. >> they appointed what's her name to paris. she would have gotten a million dollars. >> how can you reach out to the people in a country if you have never been there. speaking the language should be a minimum, but you have never been there? >> i want to be ambassador to middle earth? >> ahead next on "the five," back by popular demand, our

facebook free for all. send your questions to us now at facebook.com/thefi facebook.com/thefivefnc. we'll answer them, but first, flowers, chocolates, and valentine's day cards are ingredients of this day, but some environmentalists are taking aim at cupid for his footprint. greg is going to explain this next. we asked people a question,
2:14 pm
how much money do you think you'll need when you retire? then we gave each person a ribbon to show how many years that amount might last. i was trying to, like, pull it a little further. [ woman ] got me to 70 years old. i'm going have to rethink this thing. it's hard to imagin how much we'll need for a retirement that could last 3years or mor so maybe we need to approach things dferently, if we want to be ready for a longer retirement. ♪ if we want to be ready for a longer retirement. when jake and i first set out on we ate anything. but in time you realize the bett you eat, the better you feel. these days we both eat smarter. and i give jake purina cat chow naturals. made with real chicken and salmon, anit's high in protein like aow cat's natural diet. and no added artificial flavors. we've come a long way. and whatever's ahead, we'll be there for each other.
2:15 pm
naturally. purina cat chow naturals.

2:17 pm
drugstore, buy a sappy card, give it to someone. then you do it a year later like a flu shot without the benefit, but so what. for many shy people, it's a vehicle to express affection that otherwise would never be. it helps you say hello, i exist, and i like you. handsome chaps like me might find it unnecessary, but think of the kill meads of the world who would have lived lonely lives without this avenue of contact. and it teaches kids to take a risk. if you like someone, there's
2:18 pm
always a riv they might not like you back. it's never happened to be, but i imagine it must be painful. it's like push-ups for your feeli feelings. sadly, it energized idiots to write articles. jeffrey claimed this day murders the planet, that the carbon footprint of all those cards creates so much damage, he can't even calculate it. i guess that's harder than writing an article on it, which is also on paper, in a magazine, that prints thousands of copies 20 times a year. how bad is that for the rain forest, champ? if anything, it's a celebration of capitalism. only a country so economically awesome can turn a goofy practice that no one really likes into a billion dollar industry. but that's something jeffrey ball will never understand, perhaps because he never got my valentine. andrea, wouldn't a tree be happy it's dying for love? >> in the name of love, a tree
2:19 pm
gives its life. that's an interesting way to look at it, if it were a generous tree, i suppose. i think cards are awesome. i think cards should be given not just on valentine's day, but to me, riit's the most importan thing to see it written down. the most important thing is 364 days, be nice, write little notes, write cards here and there. it's very cute, but i wonder what he thinks about christmas with the cards and wrapping paper. so he hates everything, basically. >> unless it's a politically correct holiday that involve said a parade, he won't say anything like that, because then he would be attacked. bob, is valentine's day kind of miserable because of the expectations. >> i think so. they always start with you a-hole, and that's the end of it, so i don't save mine. it's a way to spice up february. it's always promoted by the flower and candy industry. it's fine. it's a nice thing to do. i find it frankly, i got too many people to send valentine's
2:20 pm
to, so i say to all of you out there, happy valentine's day, except my daughter, i forgot today, i'll get it to you, but outside of that, it's a waste of time to send it out. particularly on my list. most of them -- nevermind. >> they're probably not expecting it. >> unless it's a card with a money thing in it. >> money sleeve. >> exactly. >> send a card. a $50 gift certificate. >> we're taking donations for my shoe fund. >> you better take it back. >> let's move on. >> doesn't it point out it's always environmentalists who are now fun. >> you're right. it's capitalism. all holidays are kind of capt listach. don't hate them for it. it's fun, awe love these sweeth candies. >> they used to be better. i don't know what they have done to them.
2:21 pm
>> bob, be mine. greg, mary me. >> i thought you would never ask. my wife will be -- >> this is for the next segment, called ask me. >> i want to ask you a question. >> okay. >> this is on conan, it's a wonderful take on how the local news handles valentine's day. >> okay. >> there's an even bigger story that is sweeping our country. >> it is 19 minutes past the hour. welcome back, everybody. those without a sweetheart this valentine's day may look to their smartphone or tablet to help direct cupid's arrow their way. while those with a special someone might look to their device to say i love you. >> they might look to someone to say i love you. >> those with a special someone may look to their mobile device to help them say i love you. >> those with a special someone may look to their mobile device to say i love you. >> those with a special someone may look to their mobile device to say i love you. >> and those with a special someone may look to their mobile
2:22 pm
device to say i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. i love you. >> dana, i have to ask, how does that happen? >> someone wrote a very compelling press release, and they knew they the local news, which i love local news, they were going to be talking about valentine's day, and they needed to tie it into something the kids are talking about, the mobile apps, and you marry the two, and they wrote it so beautifully that the journalists, they don't have to write it for them. it just writes itself. >> i need to clarify something. when andrea put her cup this way, we have known each other for seven years, i no way intended that to be -- she would never go out with me, number one, and number two, i said i would make a contribution for valentine's day. >> thank you for clarifying that. >> god knows if you ever try that, you'll be killed. >> bob, you're not going to eat those, are you? you can't eat all that. you can have one.
2:23 pm
>> did you hear about the story this week that the school is so progressive, it doesn't want certain kids to feel left out. that was my favorite part of school, that you could send a valentine. it was stressful, but when you got one, you're look, ooh, who sent it. >> you know how nerve-racking it was to write those out with your name on it, and try to get it on her desk without her seeing you. >> i loved that. >> in high school, i was in love with this girl, and she had a boyfriend, so i sent a valentine's from him to her breaking up with her, and she was crying, she hit the guy. the guy said, what's going on? she hit him again and left. it was great. >> did she go out with you? >> not after that. >> has anyone done this, yes, no, maybe, with the blank boxes? >> i do that to greg every day. >> i would be afraid to do it. >> i'm afraid of the answer every day, because usually he doesn't like me.
2:24 pm
>> we have to go. up next, not only valentine's day. it's also facebook friday all across the country. send us your questions now at facebook.com/thefivefnc. we'll answer in our free for all. we'll be right back.

2:29 pm
bring my research fellows in. usually about 20 minutes. >> fellows? >> all righty. ang, from william m. what type of music do you like to listen to the most and why? >> ooh, i would say, if you listen to our bump in and bump out music on "the five," i tend to pick '80s. '80s pop, rock. >> maybe '70s every once in a while. >> a little zeppelin, sheena easton. >> why? >> i had older brothers and sisters and i grew up with them playing the music in their camaros. i like rock music. i like the modern stuff, as well. >> the problem with camaros is you couldn't make out in the back seat. >> they have a back seat. >> they're not big enough. >> for bob. >> for greg, from ryan m. when you drink, do you start with liquor or beer? what's your favorite of each of those? >> i don't drink liquor or beer. i only drink wine.
2:30 pm
the reason why is because i don't drink socially. i only drink when i work. this is an important fact for all you young people out there. you should never reward yourself without first having some kind of achievement. when you go and you're going to work. or you're going to a bar to drink, have an idea you want to work out, whether it's a story or something, and you reward yourself for the work you have done with alcohol. if you just go and drink, you're going to waste your life. >> the question was everything. >> do you drink late into the morning? >> no, i will -- i have a three-hour window of writing and working, and i'll drink -- what? >> do you work better with a couple drinks under your belt? >> yeah, it's a reward. when i write three or four paragraphs, i have a glass of wine. >> you go through a bottle, right, when you're doing it? >> a couple bottles. >> never past one bottle. my wife is going to kill me.
2:31 pm
>> from pete f., what kind of camera do you use when you're taking pictures of jasper? >> it's the iphone, the iphone 5 camera. i know i could be a much better photographer if i got an actual camera, but i think the pictures you can take on the camera are great. >> i didn't know it held 15,422 photos. is that true? >> they're very good. look at these. >> please. >> the calendar comes from iphone pictures? >> the calendar is a mix of pictures. usually its mine phone or my husband's phone. my husband is a good photographer. he also has an actual camera, so he takes every once in a while, he'll bring that out. >> for eric from william m., also. what do you think about this last episode of the walking dead, which is the first episode after the break? fabtastic. the best show on television, guys. you should be watching it. it was the first episode after the break, it beat the olympics last saturday.
2:32 pm
>> i actually, i'm kind of afraid of that show, but you persuaded me i should try it. >> it's not about zombies. it's about the relationships between the characters. it's awesome. >> a relationship with a zombie? i have. >> how they're reacting with each other. you worked in a mothergue, didn you? >> yes, i did. >> from barbara s. does bob have a date tonight? if so, what special plans? >> yes, i do. we're going to dinner, we're going to a movie at miy house. this is a woman who is -- i don't want to say this because i get joked about this. this is an honest to god straight woman. okay? that's all i'm going to say. >> she's young, right? is this the young one you were talking about? >> anybody over 32 is pretty old. >> what? >> can we mention the tweet yesterday? remember that? bob's definition of a long-term relationship? >> paying for the second hour? >> what movie are you going to

watch? >> night of the living dead. >> great movie. >> it is, yeah. >> okay. the new one or the old one? watch the new one. you'll like it. >> what is vital for men to do to win a woman's heart? >> ooh. be honest. and be really funny. >> funny. funny is best. >> honesty and funny. yeah. >> there you go. >> and loyalty is pretty good, but i guess that goes with honesty. >> pretty much, they need to do everything. >> pretty much. >> does politics matter? >> yes, i don't date liberals. >> really? >> i swear. i'm sorry, bob. here's the thing, we're at this date and he says that he voted for president obama. and we just got the appetizer. i was like, oh, my god. i looked at my blackberry, i just got a call. i have to do fox and friends early in the morning, and i have to go. >> you didn't give him a chance. >> it means he was bamboozled
2:34 pm
into hope and change, which means he's naive. i can't respect a guy who is naive, let alone make out with a guy who is a fool. gr probably makes bad decisions, too. to greg from kevin b., who is your favorite author? and no, greg, you can't name yourself. that was him saying that. >> let me think. definitely jim thomson, killer inside me, population 1280. he was a great pulp writer in the '60. grifters is a great movie and a great book. if you like james elroy, if you like good crime, start with jim thomps thompson. he's the best, really brutal, vicious, short crime novels. no, you would like it. >> i wrote it down, and you said vicious crime. you had me read the cormic mccarthy book. >> blood meridian. may be the greatest book ever. >> a beautifully written book -- >> the scalping bothered you.
2:35 pm
>> it was bad. >> dana, for you. how did you get to meet dirks bentley? >> persistence. >> you're a stalker. >> a little bit. i'm a fan. >> there he is. >> he's kind of tall -- well, everybody is, compared -- >> does he look like he's ready to exit stage left. >> i know sometimes on the tour bus they have watched us because they knew about the show, about bob. everybody loves bob. they wished i had taken bob to the concert. >> everybody loves bob. >> lynyrd skynyrd loves bob. >> the album comes out february 25th. there's 11 days left. >> can't wait for that. >> this is the last one, to eric from ron p. you don't eat red meat. i want to know, does this help you to run five miles a day. >> did you write that. >> i run five miles on saturday and sunday. i try to do some during the week, and with this weather, it's a disaster. >> why do you not eat red meat? >> my mom was having
2:36 pm
chemotherapy on tuesdays, and i stopped eating it on tuesdays, and then i felt better. >> but you want a steak now? >> i want a bacon cheddar burger. >> one of my goals by the end of 2014 is i'm going to get you to eat a steak. i'll buy. >> i love pork. >> i don't eat that, either. none. it's not white meat. >> it's the other white meat. >> before you cook it, it's red. >> they say we have to go. >> up next, another hot button issue. hillary clinton will face in 2016. is her age? one columnist suggesting heshe' too old to run for president. ♪ ♪ ♪ where you think you're gonna go ♪ ♪ when your time's all gone?

before chantix, i tried to quit probably about five times. it was different than the other times i tried to quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix varenicline is proven to help peoe quit smoking.
2:40 pm
it's a non-nicotine pill. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. that helped me quit smoking. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking, or mood, hostility, agition, depressed mood, and suicidathoughts or actis while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix, and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental-health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. n't take chant if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away, as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood-vessel problems or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help rightway if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping, and unusual dreams. my quit date was my son's birthday, and that was my gift for him and me. [ male announcer ] ask your door if chantix is right for you. told you, '80s.
2:41 pm
hillary clinton is under the microscope, this time, it's not about her politics but how old see is. she turns 67 this year and she'll be 69 just before the 2016 presidential election if she runs. national journal columnist charlie cook went there, saying if she wins a first term, finishing that term at age 73, and then assuming she runs for re-election, serving four years, how many 67-year-olds make nine-year commitments and what concerns have to be addressed if they do? similar questions were raised about president ronald regan and senator john mccain during their campaigns, but is it smart to go there, greg gutfeld, what do you think? >> he is so wrong. it's unbelievable. it's not that she's too old. she's too young. what the united states needs right now is a woman in her 90s. like a really, really old krone with an evil eye like the lady
2:42 pm
from drag me to hell, because old ladies never say yes to anything, they hate everything, and they have earned it. they won the attendance record for the planet earth. they ceded all. my mom is 89. she remembers hitler. this is what you need. we have a president who has only been on the planet for 40-some odd years. he doesn't know anything. old ladies know everything. >> she would be tough on terrorists. dana, what do you think? i'm fearful republicans might make the mistake of talking about her age or her appearance and fall into a trap. >> if hathey're going to talk about it, talk about it now and get it over with. here's my thing, 70 is the new 60. being 70, people are still working. there's a lot of active people that are getting up there. kidding, bob. but look, she was 70 when she
2:43 pm
