10:02 am
a bit now. did the news surprise you today. >> reporter: the timing did. there was weeks of speculation that the president is changing the national security team and he faces criticism as to whether the team was up to the national security crisis. you have the war against isis and on top of that the, the new york times reporter said the president planning to expand the military mission in afghanistan contrary to what he said over the last few years. there is a lot of challenges for the incoming secretary when the president nominates someone. the president tried to focus on the positive in terms of the personal relationship with chuck hagel, let's listen. >> when i nominated you for the position, you said you would give me honest advice and informed counsel. you have when it matters most behind closed doors in the oval office, and for that i will be
10:03 am
grateful>> reporter: republicans like john mccain saying the president should keep him around. mccain claimed to have a meeting with chuck hagel and hagel expressed frustration. i know chuck was frustrated with the administration's national security policy. his predecessors have spoken about the excessive mi comanagement from the white house. chuck's situation was no different. in his own comments, chuck hagel didn't hint of tension with the president and had warm words for him. josh earnest will come out for the daily briefing and he will get a lot of questions about the timing of all of this, and who the president is nominating next. >> the president played nice. but we had a quote that came from a senior official. make no mistake. chuck hagel was fired. those are tough words that you
10:04 am
don't so here too often when people leave or step down in washington. >> reporter: that's right. critics are saying chuck hagel was a republican and becoming a scapegoat for the midterm election losses or did the president feel right now he needs to make a change? he has two years left in office. and we talk about the national security crisis and if there was tension we would hear about it with susan rice and others. the president can bring in a now team and get a fresh start here. there is a lot of challenges that he is facing. >> ed, thank you. >> for more on this we'll bring in tom bevin executive editor of role feel politics. the election is over and the president got badly spanked. what does firing chuck hagel do? >> good question, i don't know. we'll have to see. the question is whether it is a change in policy as ed
10:05 am
mentioned. the word from the white house was to the new york times was that they admitted that you know, what hagel was brought in to do, the challenges are different and the skill set is different. they are are looking to do different things and implied he was not up to the job. what does that job going to be? i think we will have to wait and see if that heralds a new policy and change in direction or whether it was rearranging the deck chairs. >> you know, it is interesting, it was the president who compared isis to a jv team. chuck hagel made headlines when he said isis is beyond anything we have scene and counter acting the white house narrative to now. did that get him in trouble? it would seem like he is closer to the truth than the president's description was? >> that was one incident a point of tension between hagel and the white house.
10:06 am
as ed mentioned, there was between the dod and the white house and this is something that goes back to the reagan defense forum in the library there, secretary gates and panetta and along with john mccain mentioned the frustration with the white house the and the the inability to have direct counsel with the president, and there are some suggestions that hagel was frustrated by the exact same things. >> who gets the job be next? what is the president looking for? he announced on friday that our afghanistan troop force level is more robust and more involved than he has been saying up until now. >> jon, there is a lot of folks who are more expert than i am. senator jack reed from rhode island, he is happy in the senate and deputy secretary and
10:07 am
michelle floinoid who was on the short list last time and first female to head the pentagon which is some what enticing for the president to set new records and new standards. those are the three names in the immediate circulation right now. >> let's talk about another female that could make history. hillary clinton, the plunging poll numbers tblames president obama, her former boss for that drop in popularity. fox news contributor douglas sho hanand pat can you dell write jointly in this piece. as a candidate mrs. clinton would inherret a damaged party and she would struggle with the consequences of mr. obama's go it alone governance. the idea of executive order and bypassing congress, is that in
10:08 am
fact hurting hillary clinton's chances, what do you think, tom? >> i think doug and pat make a persuasive case. and setting aside the issue of executive action. hillary clinton will have to thread a certain needle for 2016. she has to distinguish herself from obama and will not want to run for his third term and have to do it in a way without alinating the voters and coalition that elected and reelected him. and that will take political skill. as hillary clinton showed in 2008, she is not skillful as a politician as she often gets credit for and that is something to watch and so if she can do. it will be tough. snshg not as skilled as her husband most people agree. people on the right like one candidate and people on the left like one candidate.
10:09 am
but the elections are won in the middle. the independents have been souring on this president in all of the polls that i have seen lately. and those are the folks she has to win over, right? >> well, in the general election. sure. but she has to win the nomination. where will the challenge come from? jim web said he would run and bernie sanders, and how far will she get dragged to the left in the primaries and same position for the republicans, how far to the right? when you get in the general election, you have to appeal to the base voters and appeal to the middle slice and independents who are decisive especially in the swing states that they are battling it out. >> for instance, 59 percent of the americans think we ought to build the key stone pipeline and what does she think about that?
10:10 am
those are questions that the candidates will have to answer. tom, thanks. >> thank you, john. a lot of questions about the missing irs e-mails. they may not be missing after all. 30000 e-mails, to and from lois lerner have been found. there is a disaster recovery tape. and the next step to find out what is on them. mike emmanuel is live for us in washington. mike, do we have what is on the e-mails? >> not yet, heather, it sounds like a fairly involved process before they read the newly discovered e-mails. committee staffers are anxious to look at the 30000 e-mails to see who lois lerner was communicating with outside of the irs and the targeting of conservative groups took place. and learner defended her actions
10:11 am
and took the fifth. and congressional sources said it is possible e-mails are duplicates and since lerner refused to answer questions from congress they are anxious to look at her communication. it is frustrating dealing with lerner. >> she knows the fix is in. but not congress and american people and tell the story. >> a statement from the irs, the irs cooperated fully in the investigation including providing the inspector general with a disaster recovery tapes that was initially recycled. i am told they must convert from the metadata formal to a standard version. other committees would likely get them in the new year after

10:24 am
nation's missing children cases. a judge ruled that the videotape confession can be used in the murder trial of etan patz. he vanished in 1979. he was one of the first missing children ever to appear on the side of a milk cartoon. hernandez confessed to strangling patz in 2012. hernandez has a history of mental illness. the confession was imaginary and not properly attained he said. for more on this. johna is a criminal defense attorney. the disappearance of etan patz haunted and horrified the city for years and now they have an answer they think. and the judge said the confession can be used. >> yes, it is a cold case and so
10:25 am
long since the death there is not a lot of forepzic evidence. without the confession we talked about before, the case would go no where. the confession was an important piece of evidence. etan was walking to school alone. and hernandez was working in a little convenience store or bo dega they call them in new york city. he lured the boy, in with a can of soda and choked him and threw the blastic bag in a box. you don't think the confession will result in a conviction? >> no, here's why. we don't have any evidence but for the man's confession which is over 30 years old and in new york, a confession alone, is not enough to get a conviction. the jurors will be instructed as such. remember even though the
10:26 am
confession is coming in, the juror will decide if it is coerced. >> what motivation to confession if you didn't have a get conscience. >> that is a stretch. not only did he complete 11th grade and sd do his only social security applications, but he represented himself in a divorce case and child support case. to make that agreement that he didn't know enough is not. >> he has a 70 iq. and that is another point his defense council is trying to hammer home. >> he was subjected to eight hours of police questioning. do they play all eight hours. and you don't just cue it up to the moment he said i did it. >> that's what the defense attorneys will do. and the
10:27 am
prosecution will play that short time. >> the defense said he was beaten down in a hot room and beat the confession out of him. >> it is effective to play all eight hours and make the jury see how long that is. that said, the fact that he confessed to people in his church group, that may be enough to put them over the edge here. >> there is not a lot of evidence and they never found etan's body. the circumstances fit and you can make it a circumstantial case and he was working on the route that etan walked to school. >> you can make that about any body working in that neighborhood. i don't think he will get convicted and the a kuwaital will be on a technicality that there is 0 evidence. we want the case to be solved and it is 30 plus years later.
10:28 am
if they got the right guy, we'll not know it. >> it is the case that resulted in so many children's faces on milk cartons nationwide. >> police are working to solve a murder mystery. the victim is a mother of two stabbed on a jogging trail. and a possible strike of several major ports and what it means for christmas bah humbug.

10:34 am
only with cars but other pedestrians and she was stabbed to death and she was alive when they found her and died in the hospital. >> she believed she was in a safe place and there many, many times and felt there was no threat. is there a possibility she was jogging with someone. we don't know. i believe that based on what i have read, who ever killed her knew her well. >> what makes you think that? >> because of the nature of the crime. we didn't see multiple stab wounds and no rage going on. >> she was stabbed in the chest. and left. not even, the killer department so if she was dead yet for goodness sakes. she was still alive. and they left. you begin in ground 0 and talk to family and friends and e-mails and phone records and then i think what will be the most telling for the police, when they set a perimeter around
10:35 am
the crime scene there will be evident. >> it was a paved pack way and a car alongside and a dog park and playground. >> they are looking for foot prints and what here? >> which may tell you, it was not a planned murder. >> if you are going to kill somebody based on the experience that i have had. you will not do it with a play grouped and dog path. >> a lot of people could have seen it happening? >> was there an argument and that person out of rage stab her? what is the motive. you know it was not robbery. what was the motive. it could be simple as getting in an argument with someone they knew and they stabbed her. police have to find out what was the motive. they will have to set up a time line and who did she talk to up until the time she was found. >> you think the police are
10:36 am
doing a good job so far? we don't know the details. >> the more details they gave out and the more information that the killer has and they can cover their tracks. >> it is east of hartford, connecticut and it is a safe area. >> you know, it is a shame to say, it is not safe anymore. and she believed it was safe and the police are going to find out who did this. >> a motorist drove by at 8 o'clock and she was still alive and she died in the hospital. i wonder if she was able to be giving a clue. >> the police are guarded and careful as to what they will release. >> sounds like a lovely woman and leaves behind two children. >> what a tragedy. you know what, if they catch the killer, they got somebody off of
10:37 am
the streets that could do this again. >> i hope they get to the bottom of this. thank you so much steve. >> and we are just about a month away from christmas. it could be a blue christmas for thousands of people on the west coast this year. a labor fight threatens to bring things to a complete halt from the ports from san diego to seattle. >> dan springer has more for us, dan? >> yeah, john, the port slowed down up and down the west coast and threaten the potential for the christmas season for retailers from here all the way to the asian rim. the goods are move nothing a snail's pace. >> reporter: we talked to a christmas tree farmer and he has 2200 of the most valuable trees stuck in the ports. they were supposed to be shipped and too late to get there to the

shopping malls. 20 percent of the business for the year. and trucking companies are hit hard. drivers are spending hours and hours in long lines in the ports. the water house union has been working without a contract since july and port operators blame them for slowing down. retailers want their products moving again. >> americans are turning their backs on americans at the port. whether it is the port authority or union. somebody is not doing their job. and this should have been resolved months ago. >> union leaders deny they are slowing down. >> reporter: they are blaming the truck drivers. and the union admits that the conflict is over potential job cuts. >> those jobs used to be the

docks and paying 25 or 35 an hour and now they are looking for cheaper ways to get the work done even though they are in good shape financially. >> reporter: as for many, it is like what happen in 2002, port workers had a slow down and lasted to a lock out and billiops of lost revenue. >> said in the innerconnected economy. all of that money going down the tube. >> imagine shedding pounds without breaking a sweat. we'll have the skinny on a new way to lose way. and plus, to run or not run. cop flikting -- conflicting reports on what it means to your health, coming up.
