road, ran into a pole smashing the windshield in the front of the bun. finally the ugly. paying the price for love. a teenager couple caught on surveillance robbing a store and celebrating with that smooch. police shared the kiss on-line and someone ratted them out. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. bye. good morning. it is monday february 16. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. we begin with a fox news alert. egypt striking back against isis launching airstrikes in libya hours after the terrorists released a video showing mass beheadings of egyptian christians. so where is the united states? >> yeah. then terror in denmark. overnight two more men arrested in connection with the man who went on a shooting rampage across copenhagen. what we're now learning about them these two guys, plus the gunman's extremist past. >> she's one of the most beautiful women in the world but now cindy
3:01 am
crawford's unaltered picture stirring debate about what a real woman looks like. everyone is discussing it, not just me. mornings are better with friends. >> good morning to you. thanks for being with us at home. we're going to start today with a fox news alert. overnight egypt's getting revenge. their president ordering airstrikes against isis in libya. >> how do you find who the bad guys are there? the strikes happening just hours after the terrorists released a video showing the mass beheadings of egyptian christians. >> that's right. almost two dozen of them. we're live in d.c. with the latest. >> good morning, guys. i've heard from lawmakers on the hill and even some white house officials who will tell you privately that this further underscores the idea that it simply can't just be the united states in the lead on this. it is going to take a concerted worldwide effort
3:02 am
to combat these killers. by now you've seen or heard about the video purportedly from isis-affiliated extremists, islam extremists showing the beheading of 21 egyptian christians. the white house issuing a statement that reads in part the united states condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of 21 egyptian citizens in libya by isil-affiliated terrorists. we offer our condolences to the families of the victims and our support to the egyptian government and people as they grieve for their fellow citizens. isil their barbarity knows no bounds. it is unconstrained by faith, sect or ethnicity. that is the broad swath. we'll continue to monitor the story from the white house as we expect more reaction from egypt's government. >> we now have more breaking news for you. overnight the gunman behind this weekend's deadly terror attacks in denmark may not have been acting alone. >> this morning two more people charged in
3:03 am
connection to the shootings in denmark. >> to get more let's go to the man live on the phone from the scene. what is the latest? >> the two men are being charged with being accomplices in two murders and five attempted murders. that would be the five police officers injured. apparently police think they helped the prime suspect get a weapon and hiding him and the weapon afterwards. one of the police officers only survived due to his calf -- kevlar vest. the prime suspect was in jail until two weeks ago. the prison system warned intelligence services against him because he had been saying a lot of extreme things while he was in prison. denmark got the rest of europe on high alert. there was vandalism against a jewish cemetery -- >> can't hear some of this. >> murdered people were a
3:04 am
jewish security guard in front of a synagogue. jewish people in denmark are very worried here. >> understandably so. >> let's talk about those stories and what has been done to them. one happens in denmark. now we have another major city hit in europe. that's a high alert. then you have a situation where egypt gets hit when 21 of their coptic christians are beheaded and they decide to hit back in libya. it makes you wonder why is isis expanding this war and what are we doing to rein it in. we cannot fight a world war by itself. we're going to have to take the lead in organizing that fight against isis, isil-al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, whatever they want to call themselves. the new organization is an organization named after tripoli. >> you see the expanded capability of isis now in terms of recruiting with their twitter handles with
3:05 am
the video they have been releasing and their territory. when you look at that map of the territory increasing, you have to wonder if we're doing enough. you have to wonder what's going on. you see it marked in red. it is just -- it's disappointing to see this. it's scary to see this. you say are our leaders doing enough here. we're the leader of the free world. particularly this weekend. guess where he was? not too hard to guess. an extended golf vacation in california where the president can be found with one of the richest people in the world. >> it is presidents' day so the president is taking it off. forget about the twin terror attacks. he also missed valentine's day with his wife. but he is out in palm springs having a golf outing. >> larry ellison. >> that oracle guy. this is a time we need a united voice. we need some leadership and you know what? the president's own former secretary of defense, leon panetta, says now is the time for the united states
3:06 am
to stand up and do some of that leadership thing. listen. >> the problem i see is that that strategy has to be bolstered in a strong way. we've got to be able to ensure that we are committed every day of the week towards making sure that this strategy works, that we disrupt dismantle and ultimately defeat isis. i think it is important to understand this is not an enemy that you can kind of stand aside and not confront. if we stand aside if we don't get involved, if we don't provide leadership unfortunately nobody else will. that's why it is important for us to take a leadership position here both in syria as well as in iraq as well as elsewhere in confront terrorists. >> congress has been nowhere to be found. you've got adam kinzinger and lindsey graham, they understand the threat and said it all along. for the most part the leadership, the republicans
3:07 am
since they took over, i don't think they have any clue for a game plan for strategies because it is not being effective. when you say we're not sure about how we're going to green light or not green light. >> this is a matter for the commander in chief. >> that is fine but you also have to show leadership to push the commander in chief. right now why are they going on vacation? >> when he's asking for authorization for the use of military force, he is sort of wiping his hands clean of the situation and saying this is in your hands, congress. not only that but we're going to limit the language so our reach is shortened. it seems to place into question the intention of this administration in real battle in terms of defeating isis. >> sure. remember after the charlie hebdo attacks and remember how the leaders from around the world, 40 leaders linked arms in paris. our president wasn't there. we had heard he wasn't there because nobody ever told him about it and asked him if he wanted to go. that was not good. that made the white house look stupid.
3:08 am
it was that same day that it was announced there was going to be a two-day summit. it actually was going to be wednesday and thursday of this week now and dennis mcdonough was talking about that on how they're planning this business summit. the problem is not much planning. listen. >> obviously made clear that we abhor this and will not let these kind of attacks stand. we're scheduling a summit late in the week a three-day summit at the state department on countering violent extremism because we know aqap al qaeda on the arabian peninsula has plans to do this around the world. we're going to stay one step ahead of them. >> a big muddy meeting no details. still didn't respond to many requests wondering who is going to be there? who's represented here in this meeting? a lot of blurry information. >> and it's labeled wrong. it's against extremism. it's against islamic
3:09 am
extremism. lest you find out the combination of people attacking around the globe how can you have a great composition? >> it looks like they called the summit the president and the white house people decided we blew it by not going to paris, let's do a p.r. move let's announce a big summit. they put it on the calendar. it's coming up this week. it doesn't sound like from what we've heard much forethought was put into it. a bunch of people from across the country are going to get together. who are they going to be? what are they going to talk about? and here's the important thing. will the president of the united states look at their findings and say that's a good idea, let's do it. >> he gets back tonight from his vacation, presidents' day. we'll give him that. >> i think before the paris attacks this thing was on the calendar and this is to deflect from the fact that they didn't go to paris. >> talking about breaking news heather's got more. >> this is the second week
3:10 am
of a trial we've been following very closely. coming out of it these words -- quote -- "i had to kill a man." those chilling words spoken by chris kyle's accused killer moments after he gunned down the navy seal and his friend two years ago. today the jury can hear eddie ray routh entire confession as the key witness who recorded that is expected to be called to testify today. routh told the officer -- quote -- "i knew if i did not take his soul, he was going to take mine. i had to kill a man today. it wasn't a want to. it was a need." a judge has not ruled on whether or not that tape will be played in court. more trouble for the v.a. to tell you about today. newly released documents casting a lot of doubt on v.a. secretary robert mcdonald's claims that he is getting rid of employees who manipulated those wait times. >> 900 people have been fired since i became secretary. we've got 60 people that we

fired who have manipulated wait times. we've got about 100 senior leaders who are under investigation now whose performance reviews have been deferred until we get feedback from the i.g. and department of justice. so we're holding people accountable. >> really? accountable? as of february 5, just 11 employees involved in that wait time manipulation have been fired. plenty of other employees have been listed as resigning, demoted or simply reprimanded, but not fired. >> $1 billion stolen by hackers in a massive worldwide data breach. a hacking ring reportedly infiltrated more than 100 banks in 30 countries within the last few years. the thieves programming a.t.m. machines to dispense money and transferring funds to fake accounts. they were able to avoid detection by constantly changing the banks that they targeted. then a steamy photo of sinty trawferred in ling -- of cindy crawford in lingerie going viral but

this is completely consistent with isis ideology. it wants to exterminate anyone it sees as not consistent with their values. i'm not surprised c.c. launched an attack already. he's one of the most staunch opponents of islamism. >> when we're looking at what's going on here and you see the mission to kill and you have the crusaders as they were named by these militant, where are we now in the fight against isis? and specifically, does isis' ideology match up with muslim ideology? there is a conversation going on across the country.
3:18 am
where do you draw the line? where does it separate? >> isis has no relationship in traditional islamic faith which reveres christians. in the koran it holds sacred jesus and also mary. christians are designed as people of the book and they are legitimate. they are to be judged by their own book and their own law. isis has no acceptance of any of those fundamental tenets in the koran. it's a diabolical violation of islamic morality. that is what isis is. they are islamists totalitarian identify i don't see hollings and percent -- ideologues and persecuting is consistent with their totaliarism. it is very clear in ordinary conversations, the united states people are constantly making the remark does isis represent
3:19 am
islam? if we don't divorce the two using precise language, people don't understand that. it also indicates our administration is somehow detached from this maelstrom. c.c., the president of egypt has no difficult talking about the ideology that we have to defeat and he's a muslim. but we have these struggles here from our leadership. >> how does free will play into this? >> islam in the koran has let there be no compulsion in belief. that means choice to believe in islam, choice to believe in other religions, choice even to abandon belief that's given by islam. but isis doesn't recognize that. >> dr. ahmed, we thank you for joining us today. great insight. happy to have you. coming up an accused killer claimed he shot american sniper chris kyle and his friend because they wouldn't talk to him. does his insanity hold up? a fair and balanced debate

we're going to have a fair and balanced debate. we're not debating his guilt. we're debating whether he gets committed or he gets life in prison. first to you heather. is he hurt by those new revelations? >> you can spin it both ways. the fact that, for example he said they weren't speaking to me and that's why i shot him. that is going to go towards the prosecution's idea that he knew right from wrong. however he later said he's going to forgive me later. no problem. that goes to the fact that he didn't know right or wrong. a lot of of what he said can be spun. you're going to hear from experts, psychologist who are going to try to spin it both ways. >> that was another strong day. another strong day for the prosecution for the life in prison. >> we know the defendant has mental illness. that is not up for debate. the question is does it rise to the level of insanity defense. he fled from the police. if you know something is wrong you might flee from the police. but if you don't know it is
3:26 am
wrong you have no reason to flee from the police. >> i want you to hear the 911 his sister called in to talk about the state she saw her brother in. >> he says that he killed two guys. he went out to a shooting range. he's all crazy. he's [bleep] i don't know if he's on drugs or not. >> he was bragging about the car he had. >> the thing that's going to be interesting is when the defense puts on their case. i think you're going to see almost a case against the v.a. he had been admitted to the v.a. at least three times had been discharged. >> much to the mother's chagrin. >> this is the dallas v.a., considered the worst in the nation. i think you're going to hear about the medication mass o he was but the -- hear about the medication he was put on. we'll hear a lot about that next week. >> even if that is all true and the v.a. is at fault
3:27 am
does it hurt the case to give life in prison? >> i think the prosecution case is overwhelming. there is no doubt he shot two people and killed them. there is evidence he knew what he did was wrong. he told the sister he committed murder and he told law enforcement he had done it because they wouldn't talk to him. >> some of the things they found in his house. drug paraphernalia marijuana and drugs. he's mixing prescription drugs with alcohol and lacing it with marijuana. taya kyle the wife of chris, said take out the part where chris is killed. the fact that that is not portrayed at all does that allow this case to go forward in a more unbiased way? >> definitely. no matter how they portrayed it it would have been true to life because we don't know what happened there. to take that out i think she is smart. she said insanity may be an explanation but not an excuse. >> jurors would have been told to disregard it but of course that's difficult and it is better it was left

timeless word from the lord, not the latest word from washington, d.c. and i realize many bureaucrats confuse themselves with the almighty, but there really is a difference between the two. the problem i have with this is obamacare is not an idea or a suggestion. it's a governmental mandate and if you don't participate, you get fined. if you don't pay the fine you go to jail. and i just don't think the church of jesus christ ought to be an extension of the federal government to enforce its edict. >> so many times we hear people oftentimes from the political left they're always talking about this is a violation of the separation between church and state. now the state is asking the church, we need to boost these numbers. you got to help us. >> that's right. and i want to remind people that many of us have a problem with obamacare because it provides for abortions inducing drugs. in fact, remember it's not just secular employers. this administration was trying to push religious

but wondered if i kept digging could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding

risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

good morning. today is monday, february 16. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. a fox news alert two majors that this lone wolf shooter wasn't so lonely at all water live with both stories straight ahead. and isis just miles from a u.s. air base. it's a home to 300 marines at least. is the president doing enough to stop the terrorist advance? the man who killed osama bin laden has been stationed at that same base will join us live. then what happens when donald trump and al sharpton meet on the red carpet like they did last night? donald trump joins news about two minutes to tell us the story. meanwhile, live from new york city it's really cold on this monday morning. >> this is joe piscopo. you're watching the number one morning show in cable news, "fox & friends." i love you guys. >> if joe wasn't doing his own radio show, he'd probably be on
4:01 am
with us more. he was great last night too, as frank sinatra. >> we're going to talk about all of that, lot, lots to say there. first, we'll get to the fox news alert for you. overnight, egypt getting revenge. their president ordering air strikes against isis in libya. >> those strikes happened just hours after the terrorists released a video showing mass behead willings of egyptian christians. >> kevin cork is live in washington, d.c. with the very latest. >> reporter: good morning. you're right, the air strikes continue. that's the sort of bold immediate reaction that so many here in washington have been calling on from the white house. you saw it from the egyptian leadership right away getting right back at isis. 21 egyptian christians said to have been beheaded by islamic terrorists who claimed to be affiliated with isis. in the immediate hours afterward, you saw that strong reaction those air strikes hitting right back at the heart of isis. by the way we're getting word
4:02 am
this morning that those strikes may have been coordinated with the libyan government and the latest we have at least 50 militants have been killed and that death toll could continue to rise as the strikes continue here. the latest from the white house is obviously they are critical of what happened in that saying they do support the egyptian people. we'll keep watching the story to see if there is any more reaction from the white house. for now back to you. >> kevin cork, thank you very much. >> okay. that's not all that happened over the weekend. we have another fox news alert to follow up on. denmark, police arrested two more people they say have a connection to this weekend's terrorist attacks in copenhagen. now we're hearing that there could be more raids today. let's get right out now to fox news correspondent amy kellogg live in london with the breaking details. hey, amy. >> reporter: hi. copenhagen police are not saying much except for that the two they arrested are in the courthouse right now. authorities are trying to
4:03 am
determine if whether they can keep them in jail as this investigation continues. but they have been charged. media reports say they may have provided weapons to the suspect now dead. what's interesting is that when that suspect was killed, the main suspect's shooter, police thought they got their man and basically the story was more or less over. but in fact, if danish media reports are correct that he got out of jail just a few weeks ago, then it's an awful lot to expect, that he would have figured out that this swedish cartoonist was in town, he would have managed to get weapons and carry out this murderous plot, if he was acting alone. more raids expected today. more information for sure forth coming. brian, steve and elisabeth, back to you. >> amy kellogg with the latest. let's bring in donald trump. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so our lead story, the terrorist attack, twin attacks in denmark and then isis beheads
4:04 am
21 coptic christians and then the country of egypt gets payback. meanwhile, our president is golfing. he'll be back tonight. your observation? >> well, it's amazing. we're living in medieval times, the old days, the horrible things of what happened then, the knights and everything and the beheadings and who would have ever thought we'd be living, when you see that scene of those men being beheaded by the whatever the ocean. it was just a horrible thing to see. obviously for the president to be out there striking the ball was not such a good optic. but forget about optic, it's not good. you think that your president and you're going to be there for another almost two years, you think you would never leave. who wants to go on vacation when you're president? you're at the white house. you stay there at command center. but you look at a scene like that and it's incredible that a
4:05 am
thing like this could happen. we are truly living in medieval times. nobody in our generation has seen anything like this and nobody has seen anything like this for hundreds of years. this is terrible. >> how much do you think our method of leading and not leading is affecting all these things happening from the ukraine, to what's happening in syria, iraq iran and around the globe? >> we're not leading and we're perceived as being weak and 60 minutes does a piece on our nuclear weapons being old and in bad shape. even the telephone system doesn't work. pear we are received as being weak. our military has not been given the funds that they need every day. i'm in the real estate business and all the time we get listings that military bases are for sale all over the place. they're constantly selling off military bases, which i don't know, maybe they don't need them or maybe they're just cutting back. who knows? but constantly military bases are being sold. you look at our military, it's
4:06 am
just not the same. it should be just the opposite. there has never been a time where we needed strong military more than now and then you have putin who is really pretty much on the edge and you have to be careful and he made a statement that was shocking six months ago. he said you better be careful. we have nuclear weapons. just to bring that statement up is incredible. but we're just not prepared as a country and we certainly have no leadership. >> certainly feels as though. i'm going to shift gears to leaders of comedy. there was a big night here last night, and it got bigger because you were in attendance. snl 40 took place. and you were photographed with none other than al sharpton. i want to know what happened when you spoke with him because he ended up tweeting this afterward. i saw trump and o'reilley at the snl anniversary and spoke to them. i have love to treat my attackers with candor and smile. they want you bitter. what happened when you talked to him there? >> he loves me. i know al. he loves trump. what can i tell you?
4:07 am
he knows it. he said it. i've known him for so long. i understand him. he's doing his thing. you know al is a guy who is doing his thing. >> what is his thing? >> his thing is to make money by getting on television and to just live out a life this -- i don't know. he does his thing. if he really believes it or not, i would tell you he does his thing. >> just a harmless guy? >> no. he's not harmless and he does have somewhat of a following. sometimes you don't think it's a real following. but al is just riding it out and he's got his show and i don't know if many people watch. i can tell you what, your ratings are a lot better. but al is riding it out. i've known him for 25 years and i knew him with don king, where don king and i would go to fights together and al was a friend of don. i know al probably better than anybody knows al. when he saw me last night, he was very happy to see me. i can tell you that.
4:08 am
>> i bet. but when he tweets out they want you bitter, talking about o'reilley and you, what's that about? >> again, he's doing his thing. that's what it is. it was an unbelievably friendly conversation. he was so happy to see me. and i was fine. i see him and saturday night live last night was excellent although it was 3 1/2 hours. this can a really good job. we had a lot of fun. but i did see al there. i saw plenty of other people there. >> probably bigger stars than al. hard to imagine, though. let's talk about your big show tonight. i'm going to be going tonight. i'm allowed to stay up late. geraldo rivera and leeza gibbons are in a deadlock to see who will be the final "celebrity apprentice" champion. what can we expect? >> first of all. they both did fantastic. she's been absolutely incredible. i didn't expect that she'd be in the finals and not only in the finals, but easily in the finals. she is like a rock. and solid. she's just solid. and geraldo is geraldo.
4:09 am
he's smart, he's cunning. he is somewhat vicious on occasion. and he's beaten everybody and he raised a tremendous amount of money for his charity and he may win. i don't even know who i'm going to pick right now. it's going to be very close. >> is there something they've got to do tonight to decide it? >> yeah. they actual will he did a big task and the task will be announced tonight. so it will help. it's not going to be the end all because they've been going at this for many weeks. but they've beaten a lot of very, very good competitors, a lot of really smart, tough people. this has been a tough one. the people truly they were smart, but they were vicious. >> you know, it does so much good. i think people consistently and constantly need to be reminded of the amount of charity and good work that comes out of your program here. >> thanks, elisabeth. we have raised more than $15 million for charity. >> unbelievable. >> it's been a real success. who would have thought this is actually season 14 between apprentice and "celebrity
4:10 am
apprentice." it's ten years and don't forget, i was supposed to be off in about three shows. it was supposed to be over. when it was first announced they said no way this is going to work. and here we are. 15 copies. >> tonight is the big final d. i was at the big task. it's a big show. so people are going to love it and tomorrow at this time, we'll know whether it's geraldo or leeza. we love both of them. but we'd prefer if geraldo wins. >> is it the last one donald? >> well, they want to renew. the ratings have been terrific and they do want to renew and have if go on but i have other decisions to make. >> you do. >> we're going to see. >> maybe we'll have another announcement coming up this week perhaps. >> that could always happen. >> okay. >> thank you. >> enjoy the show tonight. >> we will. on this show at 77:11 -- 7:11 we start with another fox news alert. >> good morning. it may be one of the largest

4:18 am
>> good morning, steve. thanks for having me. >> it's good to have you. so isis is baring down on our marines. now is the time for the president to call up whom and say go do what? >> they can call a number of forces there. i think there are 320 on al assad and the fact that they could land a c-17 transport plane there and bring more in, that's exactly what the marines are look for because isis is nearby, some five miles away. our marines are designed to fight an army. given the chance to let our marines step up to isis t shouldn't take more than a couple of days. >> sure. you have fought in that area. you fought these same guys back when they were called something else. >> yeah. we fought them -- one of the bigger units i was part of has been fighting them since 2004. i got there in the early winter of 2006 and i fought them up until 2007 late summer. they were called al-qaeda in

4:20 am
far as intelligence so we can actively target isis and root them out. >> real quick isis is five miles away from the air base where we've got the marines. as long as we're there, the marines, you feel that that's going to be held. but if we leave isis takes the quick road to baghdad, don't they? >> that's correct. we do have marines there. 320 of them. mainly trainers and advisors. however, all marines are riflemen. as long as we have u.s. forces there, we'll have the capability with our armed drones and gunships to assist. if we do decide to back out of al assad, it's my belief that isis will overrun that air base and from there it's launching pad right into the capital of baghdad. >> absolutely. rob o'neill, the man who killed osama bin laden, thank you very much. >> thank you, steve. coming up on this monday mother senselessly killed in her own driveway. what should you do if you find yourself in a similar situation? how to defuse a dangerous

ultimately defeat isis. i think it's important to understand that this is not an enemy that you can kind of stand aside and not confront. if we stand aside, if we don't get involved f we don't provide leadership unfortunately, nobody else will. >> that's the thing. that's what the president is going to say he's doing with the summit. >> he has a chance with the summit this week to reset things. but think about where we've been in this. it was just in early january on "60 minutes" the u.s. commander general in afghanistan was asked, will isis spread to afghanistan? he said no. what happened last week? a drone strike, successful move by the u.s., took out a former taliban commander who by the way, had been released by grit mow, was on the battlefield again in afghanistan recruiting for who? for isis. now, he was killed, thankfully. but are there others recruiting for isis in afghanistan? the general said one month ago they're not spreading. they did. >> don't you think it's curious that you've got leon panetta who

situation. one thing we need to keep in mind is that we see this as two distinct countries. the terrorists see this as one area. >> and al bagdadi was taken over the weekend. they say 90% belongs to militants hands and they are preparing to launch into the holy land of anbar province. >> if you recall, 20 to 25 terrorists attacked al assad air base in that part of anbar province. it's very important because of not only the dam but air base which is about the sides of boulder, colorado and has a large sunni population. >> let's look at iraq. as you see what we're looking at. the big complaint now is you see these air bases is they're saying in the sunnies and the tribal leaders who want to help us says they're not getting the arms from baghdad that we're giving back dad. >> there is a real challenge there in terms of the logistics. on the map you can see fallujah.

>> let's see where they actually have some people if some operatives. look where they spread to. why, if they can not yet secure totally iraq and syria, why would they want to expand and get egypt involved? why would they want to expand and get libya involved? >> again, let's go back to the basic tenet. they are radical islamic terrorists. they're trying to expand their surveillance. it's not just in iraq and seer y. the president called them several months ago a jv team. we got to be careful we're not turning them into 6' 5. but at the same time they're a growing threat. it was reported on february 3 to congress that there is potential growth on an international footing of isis. something we need to pay close attention to. >> i just think if someone -- we need a strategy for all these areas. doesn't mean our marines have to do it, but we have to lead others to do it. >> u.s. coalition led, with our capabilities, but also our influence. so we need to recognize that we are at war with isis. we're at war with radical

management? at least nine colleges across the country now offering classes in cannabis. but marijuana, keep in mind, is still illegal at the federal level. so is teaching students the business of getting high a good idea? time for a fair and balanced debate. we've got the head of the international faith-based coalition, bishop ron allen from california. from the drug policy alliance dr. malik. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> blake, let me start with you. you think this is actually a good idea that these colleges are teaching the business opportunities of pot? >> yeah. overall i think the fact that we're seeing colleges offer courses in the marijuana space only further vindicates the fact that people in the united states want to pursue a different path when it comes to marijuana policy. there are 24 states in the district of columbia that have
5:26 am
medical marijuana laws and four states that have chose ton end it completely. what we're seeing is businesses being created into inn this space. so people want to be able to understand how to effectively manage these businesses and this is what we're seeing with classes like in maryland and many other classes offered around the country. >> all right. bishop allen, you have a big problem with this. >> absolutely. we have colleges that are teaching our youth and young adults how to be professional drug dealers. what type of students are they going to bring or what type of students is that going to attract? when you want to be a doctor you take premed classes. when you want to be a lawyer, you take law classes. i guess when you want to be a drug dealer you take marijuana 101 and learn how to traffic and learn how to become a marijuana

5:28 am
it's also important to understand that there are significant number of businesses which make up the marijuana marketplace. beyond the dispenserries, you have security companies construction companies insurance companies and technology companies. the more people who are at work in these companies who understand how this business place works, the more likely it is we'll have a rational policy towards marijuana in this country. >> all right. bishop allen i'll give you the final word. >> you can't have a rational policy. marijuana is illegal op the federal level. we see colorado, what their experiment with legalization of recreational use crime is up 7%. that is being reported. so with an education in marijuana, which is federally illegal, we absolutely clearly understand that this type of education is educating future drug dealers, teaching them how

5:46 am
29 ports. i guess there are some activities going on within some of these 29 ports. but it is a slowdown. the labor union management is basically saying that they can not agree, there have been back and forth since may of 2014 and the maritime owners are basically saying the owners here are basically saying look, they are causing a stoppage. they are doing away with overnight hours. they are basically slowing down work and that is impacting 50% of productivity. i will say this, this entire 29 ports represents 12 1/2% of the gdp. this is a big story. >> this is where the labor secretary is going? >> that's right. >> they've already agreed on salary. the long shore man make $147,000 a year. we're talking about 20,000 employees. they are arguing over an arbitrator being on the work site. >> they don't want that? >> they don't want that. there is one point they're
5:47 am
working on. i believe that is the point. they've already agreed on health care and agreed on salaries and on their security in terms of long-time workage. but this one issue has kept going back and forth between the two sides since may of 2014. it's extraordinary. >> so the union wants it their way or the highway? >> they do. unfortunately, they are p a period of time -- had is a very important port. these 29 ports represent -- the imports from asia, 70% of all imports from asia. that is happening in these 29 ports. these 29 ports are incredibly important. so they have leverage. but we are also talking a moment in time for the economy that things are slow. you saw retail sales down in december. down in january. consumer is not spending all that money they saved yet. so you're talking about a union trying to negotiate for this one point at a time that this actually can impact an already very vulnerable situation.

5:54 am
possible, but eventually you're gog have to snap that chain off of them and let them go to work. >> you think it's inevitable that the marines are sitting there. if you were one of those marines at that base f you're one of the people there, what is the thoughts going through your head as they are gaining? what are we capable of doing with 300 guys? >> with 300 marines, you could probably take over iraq if you wanted to and get rid of isis completely. make no mistake about it, marines are war fighters. they're really good at what they do. the only time they're not good at what they do is when somebody else puts the shackles on them. i know probably a lot of young marines in there who are ready to get after it. you got guys probably fighting in the wars the entire time. they understand the severity and what that means to actually engage. that's what the leadership is there for. keep those guys calm 'til the last possible minute and those guy also wait 'til they have to. and then they'll get after it.

"lone survivor." your book was huge. "hurt locker" was movie of the year a few years ago. now you were "american sniper," chris kyle the focus. approaching 300 million at the box office. how do you explain the success of these movies? >> i think that they're really well made and really good movies. i understand people say hollywood -- it's important not to pigeon hole everybody in hollywood and to kind of into that corner. i made a lot of friends threw and going through all of that, it was a great experience for me and i know that sometimes they get frustrated with it as well. i think when dealing with movies with "hurt locker," you got eod "american sniper," that deals with the black side of it and
5:56 am
the american public is fascinated with that. if you get an insight to that you're going to watch it. and they're really well made. they're entertaining and keep you focused and the american public knows what they like. trust me, in hollywood, i don't think they have an idea if a movie is gog do good or bad. that's kind of a hope thing. it goes from there. >> they should not underestimate you guys and we appreciate what you did and i think it's heartening that american people understand it, too. always great to see you. thanks so much. >> thanks for your service. >> yes. >> more "fox & friends" in a new moment try nexium® 24hr. the latest choice for frequent heartburn. get complete protection. nexium level protection.
