10:02 am
president obama is in china today. and vice-president biden laying a wreth at the tomb of the unknown. there is a ceremony in the vietnam's memorial in washington. secretary chuck hagel set to speak any time now. and in the meantime shannon bream is live on the national mall with more on the goings on there. >> reporter: you are hearing the sneak preview of the zack brown. they will be here tonight for the first ever of its kind on the national mall on veterans day. there will be ri hannah and bruce springstein and ophrah will be here. they want to have a emphasis on those who are still serving here
10:03 am
in the present day right now, there is a number of military folks and families getting an up front vow of the zack brown band. they will be honored guest tonight and 12000 societies reserved for veterans and family and active doubt military. expect to have 800000 people here tonight. organizers are going to have information on how you help. and they are helping those who served our country and still serving our country. and they want every day to be veteran's day and sometimes it is it easier for us to write a check. but they want to encourage average americans to reach out who served or now serving to their families and so how you can help them and transition back in civilian life as well. and we talked to a lot of folks
10:04 am
excited to be here tonight. and talked to two young women from ethiopia and sworn in it as u.s. citizens. and they want to be here to celebrate the new country, now their home country and thank those who fought and died over the years. should be a great night. starts at 7 o'clock and goes for three hours. >> shannon, thank you. >> 800000 people there expected. >> that should be a busy place. >> amazing. president george bush is talking about the launch of his new book. entitled "a portrait of my father. ". let's listen. >> president reagan, first of all midterms and all of that stuff. the party lost eight societies in '86. and in the bock i put in there
10:05 am
people get tired of a president after six years. (laughter) and not as tired as you get of the chief of staff. >> andrew, please. and so there is a big pressure from dad to distance himself from reagan, but he would never do that to a friend. but he also had the wisdom necessary to know that in a campaign you make sure the person that you are affiliated with is strong as possible and not weak going in a general election. so a classic case of, of understanding human nature and politics. >> well, when your dad's term as president ended and he moved
10:06 am
back to texas? >> yeah. >> that was a beginning of a transition for you as well? >> correct. >> you started to think about what you might be doing? >> tell us what the conversation of entering in the political arena again. i know you run for congress. >> it was not much of a conversation. he knew whether it be for governor or president, he would say i am for you. it was not like i had to convince him that running for office was the right thing to do. his attitude is think about it and once you make up your mind, i will not tell you what to do. once you make up your mind. >> and then i run against ann richards. and my mom said you won't poet her, she's too popular. go figure.
10:07 am
(laughter) no, dad leaves office and i could not have run for governor had he been reelected. imagine trying to beat a popular incumbent and i would be spending as much time defending the decisions he made or distancing myself from decisions he made. and difficult to get the traction one needs in order to, you know, draw a contrast. and so in an interesting way, his defeat empowered both jeb and me to run for office: >> that year was the year that jeb and you ran and expectations were different than people thought? >> i don't know. i don't pay attention. i thought i could win and i really did. and i was hoping tho that jeb would win. and yeah, i mean, people drawing
10:08 am
conclusions for the wrong reasons. and in the book is the story about election night. i am getting ready to go declare victory. he said congratulations, son. my heart is with you. but it was clear his heart was in florida. and once you get to it know george bush, it shouldn't surprise you that he carries more for the one hurting than the one winning. sweet, sweet, sweet moment. it is not making a big deal out of that. and it reflects a love for one and not for the other. and read the bock before you say that again. and you get a better feel for what you are talking about. >> family makes all of the difference in the world to the bush clan and they are the best
10:09 am
example of unconditional love. you have experienced the unconditional love of your partners, especially your dad and tell me how you see that impacting how you love your children. >> it is a great example. but you never know what unconditional love means until your daughters turn to be teenagers. and then you learn. and so in the bock, i put this. i love you, there is nothing you can do to make me not love you. and so stop trying. >> that was a great quote. (applause) >> you are not going to ask this. what is another great quote in the book? okay. it is. this george bush and his faith. preached a sermon daily and if
10:10 am
necessary use words. summarizes the man. >> there was a debate taking place in america that you have been party to and your mother has been party to. it relates to a very close relative of both of yours. george? yeah. mom has. remember she said you will not win, she's too popular. keep that in mind andrew when you think about her wisdom. (applause) >> do you want to share any family insight? >> obviously there is a lot of speculation on jeb. i can speak for 41 when i say. this he ought to run for president and would be a great president should he win. (applause)
10:11 am
on the other hand like secretary of state clinton, he has a good insight on what it is too be like as well. and they are two people who can tell you what it is like to be president. jeb is making a personal decision. we can pressure him all we want and it will not matter. he knows the consequences. he doesn't fear failure or success. and so as he said. he will make sure it is the right thing for his family. and that should be his priority and so he's going to make a informed discussion. people always say, pressure him to run. you can't pressure somebody on such an important decision. it is not going to cause him to think positively or negatively if we harass him. only he can decide and that's in the process. i don't know the time table,
10:12 am
we'll see. it would be awesome if he runs and if he doesn't, we all love him. >> well, you. >> one time by the way, i heard him say he doesn't like the idea of a political class. the idea of bush clinton and bush obama troubles. him bush clinton. bush obama clinton? >> you don't get to pick the environment in which you run. and so his decision is personal and he doesn't listen to that kind of stuff anyway. >> you and your family had a long history of nicknames for a lot of people. your dad's nickname kind of growing up, was half- half.
10:13 am
>> yeah, he's such generation person. mine was all half. >> and elliowa e will elephant. he buzzed and the avenger buzzed the circus and the elephants went wise. and the crew mates call him ellie the elephant. >> he was the chairman of the party. >> in watergate it was amazing he came out unscathed. it was a miserable period for baby boomers by the way. i was going to harvard at the time. it is hard to go there when your dad is republican. >> and so u.n. party chairman and correct ian in china. no president has ever had one of
10:14 am
those jobs much less all four. >> listen nothing on president george w. bush down in college station, texas in the presidential library. andy carr is asking questions and they are answering an intimate conversation talking about whether or not his brother will run for president and lots of fascinating stuff and we'll dip in to this. we are also watching what is going on in washington, veteran's day today. we are waiting for chuck hagel who will be speak nothing the vietnam's veteran memorial in a few minutes. we'll listen in for that. ♪

10:26 am
day ceremony as a veteran. i was a student in the university of nebraska and omha and rurped from vietnam with my brother tom a few months before. that i always remembered that it veteran's day in 19skoin because it reminded me of one constant throughout the vietnam war. the one constant that many of you out here today recall from that war. and that constant was the uncommon valor of americans from every corner of this country. they were the quiet heroes. the quiet heroes of our time. some of the veterans are here today. and the names of many more are memorialized on the wall behind us. the wall means many things to
10:27 am
many people and it records the names of our past and reflects on our hopes for the future. it also serves as a remoipder, a message across generations and honor all of those who defend our country and making sure they are treated with dignity and respect. and carrying for those who return home with visible and invisible wounds of war and regardless of what war they served in and taking care of our people is a sacred responsibility. and the wall reminds us to be honest in our telling of history and there is nothing to be gained by glossing over the darker parts of the war that bitterly divided america. we must openly acknowledge past mistakes and must learn from
10:28 am
past mistakes. and that is how we avoid repeating past mistakes and the role reminds us we may never take the security of our country for granted and question our policies that send our citizens to war. they must be worthy of the sacrifices of the men and women who defend our country. every month, i have a private lunch with junior enlisted personnel from all of the services. what they tell me and what every american should know is that today's service members don't want to be glorified or given special treatment or privileges. the entire 9/11 generation volunteered to serve in a time of war and at a time our nation was threatened and attack and they have a strong desire to continue to make a difference in
10:29 am
the whether by staying in the military or finding a job outside of the military or pursuing an outlet for public service or involved in their local communities. they don't need a hand out but a hand up. >> and it falls on us to make sure they get that opportunity. and the opportunity that too many veterans have been denied in the past. and so on veteran's day and every day. let's celebrate our troops and our veterans and families by telling their stories. stories that inspire us all. and generation after generation and so that others can understand what these men and women have done for our country. and let's help those who need it while supporting their strength and resilience. and honor our veterans by
10:30 am
creating new opportunities for them to contribute after the service in uniform and they will continue to help make a better world. ladies and gentlemen, i've always been grateful for an opportunity to share this day, on this location at this memorial with veterans and their families tis it a high privilege, thank you. >> let's honor our veterans by creating new opportunities for them to contribute. part of the closing line of defense secretary chuck hagel there. as he stands in front of the wall and memorial to the soldiers in which he also fought vietnam. chuck hagel. >> in the meantime home grown terrorism, and the nation's largest city. we are are learning more about the man who attacked two police officers with anaxe, nearly

10:36 am
investiga also found a secondax at his apartment and a hunting knife. evidence of self radicalization is overwhelming in this case. >> this is jihaddist inspired. he had so many search terms in this respect it would be difficult to suggest that it is anything but. >> initial reporting suggested that thompson may have been motivated by those sentiment. in addition to the 277 search terms for jihad. he was a follower of al-qaeda and yemen and propaganda for a year and half before the assault in queens, jon. >> what a story, kathryn, thank you for bringing it to us. >> iraqi television station said the troops that driven isis from

10:38 am
strong horse and week horse is. isis has been on the offensive and slaughtering opponents. this would be a potential reversal. >> do you buy it when our president said we are ready and the iraqis are ready to go on the offensive? >> i don't think the iraqis are ready. we have invested billions and years of training the iraqis forces and they clearly failed to fight isis. and we have seen serious battlefield losses. >> it will take american boots on the grouped. these americans are going to have to provide the support before the president pulls u.s. troops out of that country. >> a lot of folks in the military are concerned about mission creep, do you so this happening in >> mission creep is the right term and right problem. the president talked about no american troops on the ground and he pulled them out of iraq

10:40 am
jihaddist, isis related groups spring up in many places and isis- inspired its terrorist attacks in united states. and getting close to israel's border. radical jiowa haddism is on the march and those dots are connected. >> i want to ask you about a major story out of israel. they are tightening security after several deadly attacks. a palestinian stabbed a 20-year-old soldier in a train station in tel aviv and three people stabbed in a bus stop by the west bank. among them a 25-year-old israeli woman and this after last week a hamas militant slammed a mini-van in a crowd of people waiting for a train and killed one person. and now the palestinian authority, through the social media accounts is encouraging palestinians to use their vehicles as terror weapons.
10:41 am
where do you see this going. >> again, heather, all of the dots are connected. it is social media inspired terrorist attacks and in new york city, a jihaddist swung an axe. and now seen -- seeing the lone wolf. and out of palestinian authority and hamas and new wave of terrorist attacks in israel. it is not just terrorist coming from the west bank and gaza. it is arabs and jerusalemites that are perceived by the public as sleeper cells that use vehicles and knives at any time to kill israelis. a baby died last week.
10:42 am

10:50 am
profiles. and send phishing e-mails and start developing them as a source. it is it a long- term project by the chinese. >> morgan wright. always good to hear your advice. >> let's hope they take it. >> thanks, john. >> so you. it is it a tough job market. there is a higher unemployment rate than the civilian population and we'll tell you about a new program that is trying to change that. and when i find it- i go for it.
