britain, g-7 over extending this august 31st deadline which the taliban calls a red line. >> extended that means they're extending occupation. there is no need for that. i think it will create mistrust between us. it will provoke reaction. griff: now, even the chairman of the house intelligence committee adam schiff admitting that completing the mission in time isn't going to happen. >> i think it's very unlikely. it's hard for me to imagine all that can be accomplished between now and the end of the month. >> i think the threat to the serendipity very real this would make a very attractive target for isis k or for elements of al-qaeda. >> this as neither the state department nor the pentagon would give specifics on the number of u.s. citizens evacuated however, you see here, politico reporting that number
is 4293. guys, more troubling, they also still don't know or won't say how many americans are currently stranded, that's a word they don't like to use at the white house. meanwhile as that g-7 virtual meetings gets set to go. members will wrestle today whether or not to recognize the taliban as they take over the top u.n. human rights initial morning saying she has credible reports of the taliban committing summary execution of civilians and increased restrictions being placed on women which she calls a red line. brian, ainsley, steve? steve: all right, griff. we thank you very much. in the last hour, the british defense secretary ben wallace is quoted in the pages of "the washington post" saying he does not expect diswrond extend the deadline past the 31st. so that would be a big problem because there are -- they are estimating that there are 15,000 people gathered around the perimeter of the airport trying to get. in they can't get in. you know, the government says hey, shelter in place, stay
there, we cannot guarantee safe passage. so those people are i hate to use the s word but they are stranded outside the airport. ainsley: adam schiff intel said i don't think this can be accomplished in the next week i don't think we can get all of the americans out. brian: france foreign minister additional sometime needed to complete the pullout. boris johnson said expected to try and persuade the u.s. to extend the deadline. so you have the germans incoming chancellor presuming incoming chancellor calling this a flat out debacle. allies are fed up. they said the americans are dictating not asking for input. at least the allies are allowed to go outside the wire. the u.s. officially can't go outside the kabul airport but more and more we are getting different reports that they're chop perking in and out. people in kabul. i worry about cities outside of kabul let alone those stuck outside the airport. this is unbelievable. but today i love the fact that
the military said if you want us out, the 5800 troops you sent in and you want us to get the citizens out, you have to tell us today. so president biden, time is ticking away. ainsley: tough make a decision today. peter doocy was at the white house and he asked jen psaki a very fair, very legitimate question about the people, every time we talk to them, they do say they are stranded over there they are scared, they are hold up. they are worried about even walking outside. he asked her about all these americans that are stranded in afghanistan. listen. steve: she didn't like it. >> does the president have a sense that most of the criticism is not of leaving afghanistan, it's the way that he has ordered it to happen by pulling the troops before getting these americans who are now stranded? does he have a sense of that? >> first of all, i think it's irresponsible to say americans are stranded. they are not. we are committed to bringing americans who want to come home home. we are in touch with them via phone, via text, via email, via any way that we can possibly
reach americans to get them home if they want to return home. pete: there are no americans stranded is the white house's official position on what's happening in afghanistan? >> i'm just calling you out for saying that we are stranding americans in afghanistan. steve: well, do you know who else says that there are americans stranded in afghanistan in the "new york times." headline yesterday said u.s. forces go into kabul to extract stranded americans and their allies. trey yingst who is on our man in the region. he was in kabul a couple of days ago. he said americans are stranded in afghanistan. denying this fact is ignoring reality. congressman josh gottheimer, charlie crist, tim buck and senator tom cotton all posted tweets urging stranded americans to contact their offices. do you know who else is saying they are stranded. somebody who is stranded, a woman who spoke on "fox & friends first" just about an hour and a half ago, she is in desperate need of being rescued because she says she is stranded. listen. >> we are stranded at home.
we can't get to the airport. when we try to get to the airport, we either get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives. for four days, three, four days we didn't hear anything from anywhere. and then they're saying to go to the airport but we're not being clear guidance. they are saying one thing and the next day they come and say something else. so you really exactly don't know what to do. there is a lot of miscommunication going on. you know, your emails are getting ignored. imagine being stranded in the situation like this and not receiving anything for three, four days from u.s. embassy or the state department? i am afraid for my life that i don't know, you know, how things are going to go. but i really need -- i really need our president to really consider this serious. we are in danger. we are in danger, mr. president,
please, help us. ainsley: can you imagine the fear? knot not knowing if you are going to die. not knowing if someone is going to come and rescue you. steve: she is strand not stranded. ainsley: she is stranded. she has lived it pete hegseth was in the army. by the grace of god in america. he has friends that are there that are stranded. they are worried. here's pete. >> we are at the whim of our enemy. the people who facilitated the 9/11 attacks now control which americans are allowed to flee the country which in effect, jesse, makes every american and frankly every afghan translator who can't get through already a moss sage of the taliban. hostage to a timeline they are committed to. and this white house is completely beholden to. we are calling the taliban and
asking permission. and not pushing out to secure perimeter and making it very clear if you harm a hair on the head of an american, we're going to stack taliban bodies. give us 24 hours wide open. every american. in you touch one, you die. it's not hard. but we won't do it. brian: we won't do it. and we are capable of doing it. at some point the president has got realize if you leave thousands of people in country, we are going to have to put thousands more into afghanistan to secure their safe passage. the taliban only understand strength. all they are getting is weakness. jeh johnson former homeland secretary said things are going to get worse before they get better. inside the airport it is made december on earth. made december on earth. three o -- three babies born on
planes. when americans dom afghanistan, they are supposed to register with the embassy. some didn't. that's their right so we don't even know where they're. they are setting you up to say they are stuck, not our fault. not acceptable. i love what jennifer griffin said yesterday to john kirby said listen, why did you leave bagram air base don't be a monday morning quarterback. no, no. why don't you take it back? you have all this room. it's totally secure. you have all these runways. we know how to use it the russians built it in the 1980s. we built it up until three weeks ago it was ours. take it back. get our people out and understand that right now it is not over. we look like we have lost. we look like we are leaving with our tail between our legs. we look like we are leaving americans behind. we can still show strength right now. back those rebels in the north. get back bagram air base and we tell them when we are leaving. ainsley: john kirby said about the bagram air base to jennifer
griffin. he said i'm not going to monday morning quarterback. she said what are you talking about go back in there. he said it would be expenditure of resources and personnel and increase the threat it would get americans out. last night ollie north he was telling sean his strategy. number one, number two, number three. all the things he would do. all the things he said there are nearly a dozen built u.s. airfields in afghanistan. one of these must be open and put under military control. we have the runways there to help get our people out. steve: we just have to go borrow them. hey, just going to be like a timeshare until we get everybody out. apparently the president said yesterday the reason he does not want to send the troops outside of the airport perimeter is to rescue americans who are stranded is because he did not want a black hawk down situation like the movie which completely went south. although it has been revealed apparently the u.s. military and they're not publicizing this have made a couple of trips via
helicopter out a number of miles away from the airport to fetch americans and bring them back. the problem is because some people are scattered all across the country, how do they rally at one point without drawing the suspicion of the taliban who are going hey, what are you guys all doing here at the hotel? brian: forget suspicion. the french and british and dutch are doing it we have got to go do it. we tell them here with doing because, remember, we beat them in three weeks with the northern alliance front. even though we gave them $85 billion worth of our stuff we know exactly what to do. we know the roads. we know thes. we should go back into our embassy yesterday. and the other thing to keep in mind he told us he didn't want another saigon moment he gave us worth than saigon moment. he gave us it kabul moment people falling out of landing gear from thousands of feet in the air with 800 people on a cargo jet. you gave us that. you don't live life on worse case you have the worst case
scenario for me is thousands of americans left behind. don't tell that to the military. they want to do their job. let them do their job. ainsley: did you hear the former u.k. leader was saying that boris johnson and angela merkel were trying to get in touch with biden in the beginning of this when kabul was falling. he wasn't calling them back. brian: do you believe that. steve: today on the call. the zoom call where he talks to the group of seven. it's going to be, you know, it would be great to be a fly on the wall because all those other countries are furious at the united states that they -- that we have pulled out the way we have because they are also being left high and dry. but, according to the white house, they are not stranded. brian: right. remember, back in -- america is back? america gave the rest -- our allies the heisman and gave the taliban a win. thanks, president biden. ainsley: 6:313 on the east coast. retired military commander delivers the message that he thinks the president should be
sending to the taliban. >> once we have evacuated all friendly personnel and recovered or destroyed the weapons and equipment left behind, we will depart afghanistan. >> you know jocko, he is going to join us thrive finish his powerful message. brian: first an iowa lawmaker receives voice mail the pledge of pledge of allegiance pushes white nationalism that outrageous story right after the break. ask your doctor or pharmacist about whooping cough vaccination because whooping cough isn't just for kids.

president biden busy making headlines yesterday but not about afghanistan, about this. >> today, it's an important moment on our fight against the pandemic. the fda approval is the gold standard. i'm calling on more countries -- more companies, i should say in the private sector to step up the vaccine requirements that will reach millions more people. brian: he wants to talk about anything but afghanistan, flight is this just an attempt to distract the american people away from that crisis? that's the argument my next guest makes in his new op-ed. fox news medical contributor dr. marty makary joins us now. doctor, what makes you think politics is getting into your medical remarks? >> good morning, brian. well, first of all, medical advice is sacred. it should not be used to distract from headlines. if you look at what happened within hours of the viral video of the afghan airport, the white house leaked to the "new york times" and "the washington post" that they were going to announce the next day boosters for all americans despite no evidence to
support that it reduces severe illness and without any cdc or fda guidance on it they have to vote and make that formal label. they say they are going to do it in the national security 30 days. who does that and every single day is since that viral video there maybe major announcement either cloth masks on kids and mandates and three days after the viral video about the fda is going to approve the vaccine after sitting on it for nine months. brian: here is an excerpt from your clunel, leak the fda are viral video of the afghanistan airport is curious. the use of medical recommendations a as smoke bomb from other political problems is unprecedented violation of the public trust in the medical profession. please stop playing politics with covid. but it doesn't stop there. you have the booster shot one day and then all of the sudden out of nowhere the fda is going to give full approval to the pfizer vaccine. and that becomes a leak and then that becomes an announcement.
do you believe the time something curious? >> well, both boosters from all americans and the fda announcement were both leaked and normally we don't have any fda approvals that are leaked that deliberately with that much preface before they come out. taps common practice in politics to drop news headlines to distract it should not be done with medical guidance and that violates the great public trust in the profession. brain green makary, spent all this time going back and forth on politics and medicine and how did this get this way? they're playing into it. they make people doubt because they look at this and say wait a second does it really get fda approval? do we really need a booster shot no what are we worried about? mild cold symptoms for the vaccinated? are we trying to stop mild cold symptoms? is that the issue? where is the study? are we going by israel? >> i could tell you a lot of
doctors, i would say the majority of doctors in the united states were perplexed at the broad recommendation that they announced they are going to make in over a month about boosters for everybody because the data right now shows that you get mild symptoms that is common cold symptoms and that is increasing over time after vaccination. interestingly not with natural immunity by the way. but there is no evidence that you get hospitalized or have an increased risk of dying or severe illness over time. that immunity may still be solid. so, let's wait for the data before we make broad recommendations for everybody. brian: absolutely. by the way, do we know of any vaccinated people have died on break through ailments? >> we're not seeing it, brian. and the idea that somehow, you know, that could happen, we have not seen that if it happens, it's infans at the mali rare. brian: moderna? why pfizer first? what are they waiting for are
approval mow concern. >> that back in march needed full approval. american people needed that faith and seal of the u.s. regulatory body this is all way laid. moderna filed three weeks after pfizer we will see and this j and j to file soon after. brian: thank you so much. too bad politics has leaked into medicine you wrote about it today. >> thanks. brian: i want to check, in totally my decision with senior meteorologist janice dean for fox weather forecast. janice: what says in teleprompter has no bearing on anything?

the homes off their foundation. they had no time to respond and they were in shock, of course, that it was happening. areas that had never seen water before. their homes just picked up and set aside like it was just amazing the force that came through. a friend of mine has a feed store. he has two trucks in his store. and it's amazing the devastation that happens in 15 minutes. steve: you lost hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. are you going to be able to reopen? >> we have no insurance because we weren't in the flood zone. last year i lost my business due to a storm. and we had insurance and we rebuilt. but we don't know that we can make it we were hoping we could. steve: well, then on top of that you have got over 20 of your friends and neighbors dead and

town if they are going to get out. they are going to have to start planning today, right? >> that's right. and there are reports that the president is under considerable pressure from the g-7 allies to move that withdrawal deadline back a little bit. the white house will be making that decision today we expect. the taliban has called it a red line and all of this comes as the chairman of the house intel committee expressed doubt yesterday that that august 31st deadline is even possible. >> i think it's very unlikely. it's hard for me toe imagine that you will can be accomplished between now and the end of the month. i think the threat to the airport is very real, this would make attractive target for isis k. or for elements of al-qaeda. >> the state department and pentagon have not given clear numbers on exactly how many americans have been evacuated but a leaked state department cable reported by politico estimates that number is around 4300. that's not even half of the approximately 11,000 americans the white house said are within the country last week.
in the 24 hours past -- past 24 hours the u.s. says military carried out 21,000 people. they did not break that down though by nationality we are in talks with the taliban security shams. i'm not going to get into the details of those discussions here to protect those discussions. which are covering a wide range of issues. we are also consulting closely with our allies in partners on the issue of the evacuation and its progress. >> news on discussions by national security adviser jake sullivan our national security correspondent jennifer griffin just confirmed reports out this morning that the cia director william burns met with the taliban leader yesterday, this comes as the taliban has tweeted this morning there is a press conference later on this afternoon. big decisions to be made this morning how that evacuation evident is going to conclude. brian: thank you very much.
the they like to dazzle us with numbers. picking up the pace without even needing to leave the wire the kabul airport right in the middle of the city get our people in kabul let alone people outside kabul. they don't have a clear number of how many people are out there. yet they continue to say we are not going to leave anybody behind. took them three or four days to do it. on william burns situation 1 years ago this guy was arrested baradar he got 8 years in prison for being flat out evil governor and aid to the one eyed omar forever. the trump administration under the auspices got him out of prison. khalilzad screwed this up so royally it's hard to do worse. gets him out of prison and now he is in power deal with him cia begging not begging but asking him to extend the deadline past the 31st. what else are we giving away in terms of actual dollars?
steve: well, you know, just the fact that the c a director is taliban in person sound like renegotiating. trying to move the mo the goal post so we don't have to get everybody out by the end of the month you know the numbers we have got. the pentagon said yesterday 1,000 people were evacuated but there are still 15,000 people around the perimeter of the airport and i know jen psaki said no americans are stranded in kabul afghanistan or in afghanistan but if the taliban with guns are standing between you and freedom, and they are not letting did you go by, i would say you are stranded. ainsley: i never thought i would see the day when our cia director sits down with the leader of a terrorist organization trying to negotiate. brian said it best at the top of the show at 6:00. so many there begging to be chosen. when we talk to folks that are
there. we interviewed several of them. they all say they do feel stranded they are terrified they are going to lose their lives there is a lady who spoke on "fox & friends first" earlier. she is going to be on with us 8:00. fatma. she is using a different name because obviously she is terrified for her life. she says her children are here with her husband in virginia. and her husband said the state department has been of little assistance. her brother, former military translator said at least two of his colleagues have been killed by taliban fighters in the past two days. she is stuck there. she is stranded. those are her words. listen. >> for four days, three, four days we didn't hear anything from anywhere. and then they are saying to got airport but we're not clear guidance. saying one thing and the next day come and say something else. you really exactly don't know what to do. there is a lot of miscommunication going on. you know, your emails are getting ignored.
i mean, imagine being surrounded sur --being stranded in a situan like this and not receiving anything from three or four days from the u.s. embassy or the state department how does that make you feel that you do know your life is on the line? jillian: when you get home, what is the first thing you want to do? >> [sobbing] well, i want to hold my children. [crying] i want to hold my children and i want to fight for the children that are left behind here. i want to stand for my fellow citizens and people that helped it -- that's what i'm going to do. i'm not going to give up. ainsley: she is worried she said that she will never see her children again. steve: you can tell by her voice. ainsley: and it takes meeting with the taliban leaders to get folks home i guess that's what we have to do. mike pompeo met with the taliban and the cia director is
unbelievable what's happening there and to hear their voices. their cries for help. i hope we can get them aught all out. brian: we have to get them out by the 31st. we are not going to be able. to say we have to push back that deadline no two ways about it. boris johnson expected to try to persuade the u.s. to do it. same as the french foreign minister. we need additional time. keep in mind, nato has called this one of the greatest debacles in our history, that according to the czech republic. tried the last time they met face to face with president biden. he said listen, this is a betrayal. the new german chancellor says the withdrawal creates a debacle that nato has the worst experience since its beginning and nato also as recently as a couple of weeks ago said you have to make the withdrawal conditions based. taliban has already broke all their conditions. they're meeting with -- they put haqqani network into their government. haqqani directly affiliated with al-qaeda.
we know that the official report by long war journal says al-qaeda's presence in 21 of 24 provinces so they have not denounced al-qaeda. there is present of reasons to go back in, take bagram air base and say we will decide when we will leave. thank you. steve: well, when you look at what is going on today, the president is going to meet via zoom with the group of seven leaders to talk about where we go from here in afghanistan. if the president's cia director is meeting with the taliban yesterday, the president is going to tell the other world leaders, okay, this is what they said they would do. so this is what we are going to do. so, obviously, some negotiation went on or was attempted to go on yesterday with william burns and the taliban. and now the president will be able to say okay i know you are mad at us because we pulled out or i pulled out. 's it's not a withdrawal -- brian: biden never admitted that our allies are mad at us. steve: oh, he knows.
he absolutely knows. brian: not what he says publicly. steve: right. he had the phone call with macron. macron told him we don't like the way you are doing it that was scrubbed by the white house in the official version. ainsley: took some days to talk to world leaders. brian: they are all mad. ainsley: angela merkel was calling and boris johnson was call and how many days after? brian: yeah. steve the president two are or three days. 36 hours he kept boris johnson on hold. i would imagine the president later today is going to say i talked to the taliban we are going to move it a week or two weeks. brian: how much money is it going to cost us? how much do we have to bribe the taliban? steve: they got all our stuff i don't know why they need any more money. brian: they need money. ainsley: jennifer griffin was asking during the pentagon briefing when she was asking about reopening bagram air base they said we are not going to monday morning quarterback this it would be expenditure of resources and personnel would increase the threat. how do you put a price on a
life? brian: we had 2300 there and that was too much for president biden. because they screwed this up so royally. they are up to 5800. think how much money this is costing us flying to these third countries let alone to military bases with our citizens, with our allies. with people that have to yet be screened. keep in mind, right now, we have to push that deadline back, there is no difference. what people tell you in the cia they're extremely worried about isis k and suicide attempts. so you have the taliban talking to i don't trust. at least you could see them but isis is looking to blow us up and so is al-qaeda looking to strike and we are sitting ducks in the middle of a city that we chose. i love this yesterday. admiral kirby said we game planned all this up and we are running the kabul play. we are running the kabul play. it's going extremely well on your table top exercise. we saw your table top. now it's in real life. and it is hades reincarnated and
what you should have done is got another table. put it on bagram air base and play that game. such an embarrassment. steve: well, i don't know that the federal -- the u.s. government is negotiating with money but we do have the big stick. you know, we have got the might of the u.s. military. and that is something that jocko willink knows all about. retired navy seal, got a great podcast. he is up every at a about 3:00 talking about stuff. he was on on "fox & friends first" and he says. ainsley: no it was our show. steve: that's right. the first hour of "fox & friends." he is saying the commander-in-chief is simply making excuses for what has gone south. watch. here is jocko. >> you can't make excuses and we have heard at love excuses from the president at this point. you know, that this would have happened with any withdrawal plan or the president of afghanistan run away or i was just following through with the deal from the last administration. and, all those are just excuses
in placing blame on other people. the plan was a failure. explain what went wrong. take ownership of what went wrong and then come up with a plan on how to fix this. american troops are ready to go and ready to do what is needed to keep those people safe. ainsley: he has a powerful message on instagram if you want to follow him. what he would do -- what he would say if he were president biden after all this has happened. brian: what the retired soldiers have done, what the vets have done bypassing our government dealing directly with afghanis and americans, to try to get them to the right place through the airport, through a tiny sliver that allows them to arrive safely without being beaten or killed. it is such an embarrassment that our vets still have to serve when retired to help out a country that this president abandoned. and on 9/11, the taliban will be celebrating in the u.s. embassy 20 years later. think about that. what is joe biden's message going to be on 9/11?
congratulations, we lost the war, gave the taliban all of their -- our best weapons, and gave them back the country. that is joe biden's legacy. steve: well, brian, a moment ago, you did mention as they fly so many thousands of people out, you know, are they properly being vetted? apparently somebody landed yesterday in birmingham, england and somebody at the receiving end says, okay, your name? hey, you are on the no fly list. how did you get on the airplane? apparently so far five people on the no fly list tried leave from afghanistan one got through. the worry is the terrorists are trying to exploit the confusion at the kabul airport to get people in. we hope that the vetting process is rigorous. ainsley: so far three women, there could have been more they are saying but they know of three women that went into labor on the planes. one lady on one of the c-17 planes she went into labor.
her blood pressure started to drop they had to fly at lower altitude and medics had to help her. the medics saved her life air force medics. brian: that's a great story but to steve's story 19 hijackers did all that damage 20 years ago. if we make 19 mistakes out of 60, 70,000. think about how bad that would be, how dangerous that would be. ainsley: and our borders are open. brian: like i said, the one thing they tell us that these intelligence apparatus, a lot of times siloed. the fbi has their list. the nsa has their list. is anyone crosschecking lists? steve: how about the hundreds of people from gitmo who have been released. ainsley: who were released. steve: the number we used yesterday is 266 of them who were released from gitmo, gotten back in terror. ainsley: one of the current taliban commanders that we showed pictures of was released by barack obama and joe biden from gitmo.
brian: we have softened the target afternoon we are the target and our government has totally et let us down and let down the men and women who fight. the commanders have let them down. someone has to stand up to president biden and say i cannot work under you. as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and secretary of defense while you continue to sully america's reputation. someone has to stand up to this country's persona worldwide or we are never going to recover. steve: let's just hope there is a lot of vetting going on before we let people into the various countries around the world. ainsley: i hope. so they can walk right into the southern border. brian: sold us out to the airport no one vetting people effectively it's impossible. president biden put our men and women from impossible situation. i feel bad for the 5800. i'm just in awe of what they're able to do under impossible circumstances. ainsley: all right. jillian has more headlines for us. hey, jillian. >> go ahead and begin with this story. story.

steve: as we have been talking president biden is under a lot of pressure this morning over whether to extend the deadline at the end of this troop to keep in kabul. burns secretly met with the taliban feared kabul just yesterday. retired u.s. army colonel fred do you march led special forces units in afghanistan and he joins us right now. colonel, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: you know, it sounds like if william burns the cia guy for us is meeting with the taliban's leader, it sounds like and given the fact that this is the guy who years ago actually was a
negotiator for the taliban between the united states and qatar, that could be a good combine that behind the scenes they are trying to move the goal post. >> yeah. it's a good sign. it's sad upper hand to the taliban and allowed them to be a in a position of power in this negotiation but is a good sign that he would negotiating. steve: sure. joe biden has been adamant to this point that the deadline for the most part is going to stand unless things change is the caveat. what would happen if he just said at the end of the day after he talks to the group of seven leaders you know what? we are going to go ahead and hold on to that deadline of next week a week from today? >> we're essentially setting up a massacre at the kabul airport based on the thousand of people that we know that are inside the airport awaiting flights and the
untold number, we know it's thousands. we have photos obviously you have seen them as well, miles and miles of people standing in line to get inside, so thousands of people and it's inconceivable to me that the taliban isn't going to say as soon as we're gone all of those of you trying to leave the airport are trade traitors to the afghanistan we know how they handled those types of situations. steve: let's say they are able to extend the deadline a week or two or three weeks. colonel, you know there are still going to be americans left in afghanistan. what happens to those folks? >> they are essentially stranded and left on their own and we will be spending more lice, more resources in attempts to get them out of the country. right now there are some people trying to get into the airport
so many people in the airport american citizens are being turned away and we know that's happening because we are in contact with people through our organization just trying to evacuate american citizens, our afghan friends that have special immigrant visas, green card holders and other refugees. people that we fought with. and we know all these classes of people at one time or another have been turned are away from the gate and unable to gain access to the airfield. steve: colonel, we heard from the white house yesterday, those people are not stranded. >> they're absolutely stranded. if you could hear and see, i know you have seen some of the desperation, but if you could hear and see the desperation that all of us that are involved in this evacuation effort. all of the veterans that have stood up and formed task force dunkirk and the other it nonprofits working to evacuate folks it's desperation that we see every day. steve: there is a lot of desperation, everybody is trying to get out it seems.

going to walk out of principle. our job people are strong principles gravitate towards. as i don't think some will buckle ton i think they will walk. ainsley: chief, what about you? >> i agree. our department consists of three shiftsz of four personnel so each shift is support and i have four individuals who have coach not to vaccinate and i believe as he has said that they will walk when this time comes. it's not a manner of making them vaccinated it's a matter of them stepping off the job. it's more important to them that they protect their rights and that they not have to mandate -- not ohave to have that vaccination. ainsley: are they doing it successfully now without the vaccine. >> absolutely. we have been working in the field. working with sick patients, covid sick patients. we have been wearing the proper ppe. interest has been no exposures to any of our personnel. there has been no exposures
across the board from firefighters to patients or vice versa. we have been doing this very successfully and we feel that we can continue to do so. ainsley: chris, the real victims here are the people calling 911, right? >> you know,. ainsley: chris, i will start with you and then i will go mark. >> i'm concerned about the staffing level. we do impossible things and so i expect that we will continue to go out there and meet the mission but i am concerned about our condition. our guys are already tired and we're already working forced overtime. if we lose 30 people the amount of forced overtime is going to push out people that are eligible to retire but are still working here and may choose to leaf, that's going to push more people. one of those people leaves it's 48 hours that has to get made up in overtime by the rest of the group. at some floint is a tipping point somewhere. ainsley: mark, what does the community say the taxpayers. >> we have heard from them. several of them are concerned
this will be a problem. we are very concerned as is the portland fire department. we have 1/3 of our department will step away. that means that i will have only four personnel in the entire department on a full-time -- on our full time side. only four people, members that will have more than two years experience. so what that means is if when we have to hire to replace these people, which will be difficult to do, because there will be so many other departments looking replace theirs that we will be getting all new firefighters. there will be no experience on the department. and in the meantime we will be spending tons of overtime at the taxpayer's expense to cover the loss. and to fill that in. ainsley: chris and mark, thank you so much for weighing in on this and what you do, saving lives. >> thank you, appreciate it. ainsley: you are welcome. thank you. in just hours, the full house is set to receive a closed door briefing on the mission to get our americans and our allies out of afghanistan. members of the intelligence committee already received an

ainsley: just hours from now house members in congress set to attend a closed door briefing on afghanistan. steve: this as we learn cia director william burns met with the guy screen left right there, met with the taliban's leader in kabul yesterday. the highest level face to face encounter between the taliban and the biden administration since militants seized kabul. brian: by the way, the ca was the one that arrested him 11 years ago and made sure he got jail time which was 8 years but we sprung him. members of the house intel committee including congressman brad wenstrup who is an officer in the military attended their first briefing yesterday and joins us now. brad, walls it pure politics or were you guys actually getting to the bottom of what happened and whose decision it was to
mess this thing up? >> well, you ask the right questions there, brian. certainly i'm not going to discuss classified information in this setting, but i will tell you that i really left with more questions than i had answers. and let's look at why and why we still have questions you know. the president said there was always going to be kay office. you can't help chaos i can understand that to a degree. you are definitely going to have chaos when things are done in the reverse ordinary. and especially when you could it during the fighting season when the taliban is at its greatest strength. maybe that's why tony blair called the whole thing imbecileic. get your people out. people you made promises to you get them out. you get your assets out. the last thing you do is get your troops out. i want to know who made decisions like let's goes bagram? where was the conversation on that? was there something in the
intelligence community that said that was a good idea? did that come from our military leadership or was that a lone decision by the president of the united states? does the president of the united states really believe that al-qaeda and isis are not present in afghanistan? we really would like to know. is that the information is he getting? because we hear to the contrary or is that just something that he decided was -- and, also, i want to know right now, does this administration recognize the taliban as a legitimate government? and now we have -- we have the head of the cia over there, and i read about that this morning. ainsley: would he be able to change their mind taliban warned us if we extend the deadline they said it will provoke a reaction. >> you know, it's interesting because i believe this is a deadline that was set by the president. brian: yes. >> so now it's bun being set by the taliban. they are now dictating to us at
least how that's how it would appear. actually i would hope the cia director as is he over there speaking now say you harm one america and you interrupt this process pay a price like have you never paid before. that's the only way to talk to these people. you go in and put them in control, they are going to manage that their way and that's not the way america is supposed to work in this situation. >> let's hope the cia director is moving the deadline so we can get people out. >> absolutely. steve: congressman, according to the white house yesterday, no americans are stranded over there. >> that's not what's happening according to what's going on in our offices and district. we are getting calls from people left and right. not only concerning the interpreters and people like that. that people served with and now are stranded but about american people. and if they're taking their
passports and holding them up. aren't they actually hostages at this point? that seems to be by the reporting what is taking place and so i guess maybe whether you have spent the last couple years of your political career being able to say anything and have it accepted by the mainstream media you think you can continue that but i can tell you we are seeing more bipartisan support and anger over what is taking place. >> i hope. so colonel, real quick. we have to be able to empower our men and women to go outside kabul airport and get our people. they are doing -- some choppers are going out there. got about 300, maybe there is more. but let's just make it apparent. do what the british and french doing and got to go past kabul. if that didn't come up in this conversation, then we are wasting our time. then there are hostages in kandahar and in shareef and other places. >> american military personnel could do great things. you just have to let them do it.
so far it seems like they are being told you can't do these types of things. i really wonder what 9/11 2021 is going to look like. are americans going to feel that they're more safe from terror than they were one year ago or even 20 years ago? steve: great question. ainsley: yeah. thank you for your service, too. colonel, in the army reserve. >> thank you. steve: thank you, congressman. >> thank you. steve: 14 minutes before the top of the hour. let's check in with senior meteorologist janice dean. she is taking a look at what do you have going there, janice? janice: well, this was the heavy rainfall event that we saw over tennessee. we were talking about henri all weekend. meanwhile a frontal boundary with all of this moisture in the atmosphere brought over 17 inches to parts of middle tennessee in just a matter of howmplets in some cases you saw four inches of rain an hour. it was incredible and historic for this area. i just wanted to point it out because we were so focused on henri and it doesn't take a
named storm to cause at love destruction. keep that in mind as we go through the next couple of days. good thing is we don't have a lot of heavy rainfall in tennessee. we are seeing potential for showers and thunderstorms, minnesota severe weather warnings and as we look broadly across the country no, major weather makers to tell you about but it is going to be hot across the mid mississippi river valley, of course, it is august. but those temperatures are going to be very dangerous unfortunately so we will keep you posted. all right, steve, ainsley, brian, back to you. ainsley: thanks, janice. brian: 13 minutes before the top of the hour. iowa lawmaker receiving voice mail claiming the pledge of allegiance pushes white nationalism. turning point u.s.a. founder charlie kirk sounds off on the rise of anti-americanism among the left and the youth. ♪ ya know, if you wanna make that sandwich the real deal, ya gotta focus on the bread layers. king's hawaiian sliced bread makes everything better! ♪ (angelic choir) ♪

one pardon and parole to convicted murderer. among those is david gilbert. gilbert was convicted of three counts of second degree murder and four counts of first degree robbery for his role in the deadly 1981 brinks armored car robbery in new york. he was serving a sentence of 75 years to life in prison. he, along with kathy boudin were unarmed get away drivers in a waiting u-haul. they were members of the radical left wing organization weather underground. the group along with members of the black liberation party. it was to create a revolutionary feature overthrow american imperialism. the weather men carried out a series of domestic attack notice 1970s. the fbi went on to label the organization as a domestic terrorism group. the organization later fell apart in 1977. now, gilbert is the father of san francisco district attorney chesa boudin the embattled d.a.

and this is the thing that we are fighting every single day at turning point u.s.a. and to say that the national anthem, brian, is somehow racist or bigoted. brian: or the pledge. >> that's right, the pledge of allegiance is somehow racist or bigoted is an insult to our nation and to the american creed. if we do not have some common things that bind us together,. brian: brian right. >> i'm afraid we are going to shatter into a million pieces. brian: that is happening right now. people have got to sober up quick. it gets worse. listen to this. this is more from the same call. >> we're proud of the fact that not all citizens in the united states are afforded the same rights and the same privileges as the blond haired blue eyed ones. that's a bunch of colonizer [bleep] carter and the inequality are [bleep] perpetuating that is disgusting. brian: when the called back they did not answer. but that is something you hear when you go to schools because you have the next generation of conservative thinkers but most
of the schools think like her. >> yeah. not only that brian, but school board members think like her which is why we launched our school board watch list which is to try to give parents and students the ability to have oversight of what's actually happening in these school board meetings. you would be amazed where all of a sudden they are renaming schools like in san francisco or at least proposing to from the abraham lincoln school where they are trying to implement critical race theory and wokism this is a major problem in our country and what we're trying to do is trying to give parents the to ability know exactly what is being taught to their students and what they can do about it. i'm disturbed when i hear audio like that but i'm also reminded that so many people in leadership, brian, hold those beliefs and they're implementing them in curriculum towards our children. brian: look. if you want to identify your school board weigh to the left go to school board watch list.org and maybe turning point
can get behind efforts. loot of these would be board members would be rookies and they need coaching and they don't know how to start. charlie, that's why it's so important. so one more time the address? >> school board watch list.org, critical race theory and wokism is in all of our institutions and including our military by the way. we need to empower parents to have the tools to fight back. brian: charlie is going to be on in noon today in most cities across america on talk radio. charlie kirk, thanks so much. >> thanks, brian. brian: meanwhile, coming up straight ahead this our final hour, american mom trapped behind taliban lines in kabul. her cry for help to the biden administration that will be at the top of the hour. listen. >> we are standed at home. we can't get to the airport. when we try to get to the airport, we either get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives. , 15 or more headache days a month each lasting 4 hours or more, you're not the only one with questions about botox®. botox® prevents headaches in adults with chronic migraine

williamsburg with the leader of the taliban yesterday . an upcoming press conference this afternoon and that's as the president is set to meet with g-7 allies this morning but wanted to push that august 31st deadline. that's one week away. but caliban called it a red line but the chairman of the house intelligence committee expressed doubts that withdrawal could be met calling it hard to imagine . she noted there is threat to the airport from isis and al qaeda. the congressman was part of a classified briefing on the situation. here's what he said last hour . >> certainly i'm not going to discuss classified information but i'll tell you i left with more questions that i had answers. and let's look at why and why we still have questions. the president said there was always going to be chaos. you can't help chaos and i can understand that to a degree but you're definitely
going to have chaos when things are done in the reverse order and especially when you do it during the fighting season and when the taliban is at its greatest strength. >> the state department and pentagon have not given clear numbers on how many americans have been evacuated but the latest and all reported by politico reports that number at around 43 million americans, not even half of the 11,000 the white house says are believed to be in thecountry last week .the white house says the military has evacuated some money 1000 people on both us military and coalition flights but that 21,000 was not broken down by nationality and the president has been facing pressure from g-7 allies to push that deadline because they're all scrambling to get their people out to. >> thank you very much. in the last 10 minutes the washington post which broke the story about william burns
meeting yesterday, these are tops five caliban says they likely discussed the extension of the deadline. it does sound as if he also sent to the caliban hey, you guys have an optics problem and theproblem is you look like you're the same people you were 20 years ago. because right after that , a new caliban leader directed the fighters to start behaving because apparently they are alienating people so he came out with a five-point plan for the caliban on how they should act . one of them reminding the taliban fighters former officials in the last government will get amnesty because there are stories aboutpeople gettingkilled and also roughed up . also stopped openly brandishing guns in the city. we famously seen those pictures .
>> our guns. >> our guns, exactly. you should not punish people for their hairstyle because in the 1990s they were famous for giving forced haircuts and the last point is the calibanfighters will all wear their uniforms because they're taking a lot of heat from people running around with guns , they're wearing us uniforms. itsounds like burns probably said you got to pick this up because out of nowhere they're trying to fix it . >> it's a good sign but we don't wantto get the taliban the upper hand and the taliban warned if we extend the deadline it will provoke a reaction . maybe they did work out a deal and we will learn about it in a couple of days but we need to get our people out and even adam schiff was briefed in the classified meeting and he said it's hard for me to imagine that it all can be accomplished between now and the and of the month . >> if the cia director was advising the new leader of the taliban, captured in
pakistan by our cia who in humiliating fashion has to deal with him as a head of state. if he's advising them about optics and the way he's you, that's scary. i don't think that's the cia area. plus the the taliban are brutal neanderthals they're chopping off limbs and killing people. that is so nacvewilliam burns is saying that . weare in a world of trouble . number two is don't expect the taliban to do anything . they got their own university. there affiliated with al qaeda. al qaeda will be in our embassy on 9/11 celebrating 20 years since the attack so what were going to find out is we cannotpossibly get all our people out by the 31st . if joe biden's reputation is destroyed forever already, leaving thousands of americans in the country you said would not fall in any
period of time that you said it was, you are beyond the worst president in the history of this nation and number two, our allies. our allies can't get anywhere without us and they need more time. the french foreign minister, nato representatives in the g-7 will say august 31 cannot stand. if you hear where getting out august 31 know we have sentenced thousands of americans to death. >> ollie north was on sean hannity's show and he said we need to obviously evacuate our american citizens but he said we need to send a message to the caliban, to al qaeda and isys that if you harmony oneof our americans , our military will decapitate your leadership . he used those words. he said we need to carry out our operation. there are 12 us built airfield in afghanistan and
he said we need to open up one if not more of those to get our individuals out and jennifer griffin was asking the pentagon about this the spokesperson said why haven't you opened up basra? we've got several runways there. we know that space, we know that area and he said we are not going to monday morning quarterback it . we want to get our people out, it's not about looking back and he said it would be an expenditure of resources and personnel. >> you got the caliban, now they're starting this new pr thing where where not going toalienate people according to the washington post . so that then going forward, the other entity which is bad pr is the white house because it was, this is all on joe biden. it was very clear that he and he was running for president he said he was going to do this. he's just not doing it the right way. there also in denial about
those thousands of people. right now there are 15,000 peoplearound the perimeter of the airport. they cannot get past the caliban floor openly brandishing those weapons . are white house correspondents asked jen psaki about that yesterday andclaimed nobody screened in their .>> we have a sense most of the criticism is not of leaving afghanistan, it's the way he has ordered it to happen. by pulling the troops before getting these americans who are now stranded. does he have a sense of that ? >> it's irresponsible to say americans are stranded. we're committed to bringing americans all. we're in touch with them via phone and text and email and anyway we can reach americans to get them home if they want to return . >> no americansstranded is thewhite house official
position on what's happening . >> i'm just calling you out for saying we are stranding americansin afghanistan . >> she went on to say we're not going to get out until we get every american who wants to get out so that's why they're notstranded . >> one of the americans that is over there said she is stranded . she's fearful she will never see her children again in america. her husband is taking care of them and she said the state department has been of little assistance. her brother is a translator in the uk and two of them that he knows of that have been killed by caliban fighters in the last few days. she is so scared and you can hear it in her voice. >> we are stranded at home we can't get to the airport. when we tried to the airport we get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives. for three or four days we didn't hear anything from
anywhere . and then they're trying to go to the airport but they are saying one thing and the next they're coming with something else . you really don't know what to do. there's a lot of miscommunication going on. your emails are getting ignored. imagine being stranded in a situation like this and not receiving anything for three, 4 days from the usembassy or the state department. i am afraid for my life . i don't know how things are going to go. but i really need our president to really consider this serious. we are indanger. we are in danger mister president . please help us. >> she was considering coming on our show, she's going to be on with us right now but she said herinsulin is running out . she doesn't feel well. she's terrified for her life so that was the interview she gave.
>> everybody knows people are stranded and she went on to say no one's contacted me. jen psaki had we been talking to these people on messages but according to that person, who's stuck in the citystranded there as not been contacted . tried to go up a few times and that's not going to be good for the caliban image . the taliban image. keep in minddespite whatever you see from the readout on the g-7, they're going to blister presidents biden . they're going to demand he pushed back that deadline. nato is at stake here. we needthese allies, they need our military, we need these allies and other challenges from north korea to china . why would anyone with us when we continue to do our own thing and not even consultant or their expertise ? jen psaki can say there are nobody stranded in afghanistan but the new york times yesterday in their headline said us forces go
into kabul to extract stranded americans. our correspondent in the region tweeted americans are stranded in afghanistan, denying this fact is ignoring reality and number of members of congress including charlie crist and senator tom cotton all posted tweets urging stranded americans to contact their offices for help. famously it was tom cotton's office who helped get the guy we had on the program couple days ago strong and he was able to join us yesterday ellis airport on his trip back to colorado. he was actually assisted by the senator's office in getting out ofkabul . >> don't be dazzled by the state department, defense department telling you how the planes are filled up and how many people are getting out, how many countries have
decided to come aboard and help us out . the reality is they caused this mess and they're trying to fix it. they just want to talk about theairlift and keep in mind at some point we have to stop blowing up the equipment we left behind . you're talking about 45 blackhawks, brand-new 2000 vehicles, 32cessna's , also 600,000 small arms, i'm not sure how we're getting to them. night visionglasses, this is unbelievable . almost everybody knows you didn't think the afghan government couldwithstand pressure from the caliban . you said no one thought it would go this. >> ,how could you leave this with no plan to collect it if you knew they were going to lose, you just didn't know when? we should be doing airstrikes on our own stuff and start blowing it up and blow up the airbases. >> former homeland security
secretary said it's going to get worse before it gets better . >> noquestion he's right . >> unfortunately it's pretty bad now. it looks like something you would see in hell, justthe chaos on the perimeter of the kabul airport . the heat, the exhaustion, the children and bats on the outside and just to get inside you wait even longer. >> they're waiting to get that phone call to say you're on the next plane and brian said it best in the 6:00 hour. he said they are begging to be chosen. >> if they get on the plane they have a chance tolive because they stick behind , who knows what's going to happen? a lot going on. jillian joins us once again with more. >> let's begin with this story. a four-year-old girl dies after a gunman opened fire in front of a tampa florida street. sonny bell was in the backseat when she came under
the hail of gunfire family and friends remembering her during a visual . tampa police are looking for the public self andlooking for the shooter . three tornadoes as the remnants of henri fades. no injuries or deaths were reported. the east coast starting to clean up after the storm froze into rivers and in connecticut the water is causing this road to collapse forcing 18 families to evacuate. power crews scrambling to restore power as roughly 12,000 people are still in the dark. a live look now at capitol hill where a groupof moderate democrats are holding biden's $3.5 trillion spending plan hostage . they claim speaker nancy pelosi needs to put the $1 trillioninfrastructurebuilt on the house floor before voting on anything else . the plan is already getting democratic pushback in the
senate . killing hopes to pass through budget reconciliation and finally a california district is facing backlash after it would draw students blood for testing. the santa monica malibu unified school district changing language on a testing consent form after parents spoke out and officialstelling fox news it never intended to do blood tests calling its inclusion on the form and oversight . that is look at your headlines . >> that's an embarrassing mistake. there's a governors race going on and i wonder if that will help? never know. coming up on this tuesday telecast and afghan national police officer mister along with us forces is nowsafe on us soil . >> one of the special forces officers who helped get him out of afghanistan shares the incredible story .

taliban. after at least four attempts for the us military, he and his family were were extracted from kabul. our next guest was a special forces officer, ryan drummond . so glad you put this operation together doing something our government can't . what did it take to pull this offwithout compromising other missions ? what can you tell our audience? >> this is a huge effort, a combined effort offolks in and out of government . it did involve our government in some ways. we have the help of senators, representatives,folks at the state department . it was just a huge effort of those in and out of government in order to make it happen. >> brian: so the taliban new what he looks like so you had to do this thing obviously at night . there's others that have helped a lot that are very recognizable to but also
possibly desert safety so with this in particular, did youhave to go and use our allied forces ?>> that's not really something we can talk about right now because there are a lot of missions that areongoing but i cantell you that us allies were involved . >> brian: how much-needed is there for your operation ? >> would you say that one more time? >> how much-needed is there for youroperation, how many people need to be saved ? >> that's a difficult question.i can tell you there's a small group of high-profile people like khalid. this is the guy that can't get out of his radio station and would challenge the taliban. he started as a young second lieutenant in helmand province and was very recognizable and there's a few others like him that our
high profile that havestayed and fought to the end that have been trapped .>> brian: it brings me to the thing we first started with. the president and others have come out and said who knew the afghan army wasn't going to fight, did the afghan army refused to fight ? >> having not been on the ground the last week but it's a chaotic situation. we'veall seen the events that have unfolded in the last 10 days . certainly there was some portion, a large portion of the forces that withdrew and that retreated but there was a few . there was a few and khalid was one of them that stood and fought. he was wounded at the last battle in helmund and did well beyond what most of us would consider to be a reasonable effort. >> brian: there are a lot more people hoping that you will save them, how long do you think you will keep this operation going and does your message extend is august 31 deadline?>> as far as our
policymakers go those are decisions being made well above my pay grade and a lot of factors go into that. we see it on television every day. there are thousands of afghans that has served alongside the united states in varying capacities that we are working on a process and khalid is one of those people. he is safe but it's ahuge effort that involves the state department and dod and private organizations . so as far as extending timelines and deadlines, that decision belongs to the president of the united states and i certainly wouldn't want to question what his decision is on that but as we can see there are a lot ofpeople that need help . >> brian: i want to question that and august 31 is the deadline for a lotof
americans. thank goodness there's people like you taking risks for the country. operation promisekept , thank you so much . >> thanks for having me, brian. >> brian: hopefully we will be on take talking about more success stories. one nebraska family is working to really relocate some thomas omaha. plus the man accused of bashing a commuter with a hammer caught by police but it's not his first incident with the law. terrel says the guy is a proposed product of thefailed system . >> he lanes, they're right behind you. reunite with your team. go bowling. it's the biggest sale of the year, on the new sleep number 360 smart bed. it's the most comfortable, dually-adjustable, foot-warming, temperature-balancing, proven quality night sleep we've ever made. save 50% on the new sleep number 360 limited edition smart bed. plus, 0% interest for 24 months. only for a limited time.

police department made an arrest on that brutal hammer attack on a subway platform . the suspect arrested on sunday after he allegedly stole a chain necklace from a teenager earlier, then they realized he was the guy with the hammer with the subway attack . the suspect already arrested twice this year and released twice this year for different crimes. that's the nobail policy in new york. fox news contributor leo terrel joins us from la . you've got a big smile on your face because you been warning us this is what you wind up with with that crazy no bail system where there is no accountability . just hurt people and next thing you know you're back out on the street. >> the country and the world has been focused on afghanistan and criminals
have not taken any timeoff. new york is constantly facing crime . this is a perfect example of a serial criminal was out all thetime and you know who's silence ? eric adams because he talks a big game, he's a former police officer but will he stop this no cash bail? if not, new york is in trouble notwithstanding everything else, crime is still rampant going on in new york and democratic cities. >> steve: the reason this guy got caught is apparently because he tried to steal the chain off an 18-year-old kid advocated want to give it to him and he got out the hammer and threatened him with it and took the chain but then the kids went home, got gifts from his neighborhood and they track the guy down and confronted him after running
down a train tunnel and next thing youknow the cop sees the kid with this guy and they went after the kids thinking they were beating up an older guy and they realized that the guy with the hammer . >> it's a perfect example of how new yorkers, young people are vigilantes doing the job that police officers should do but police officers are being handcuffed because of the lack of police support in new york and in democratic cities .this is tragic because again, the focus is on this repeat criminal offender, the cash bail, the elimination of the cash bail issue is a major problem in democratic cities. >> steve: you and i have talked about kamala harris because she's from california. she's in singapore todaywas earlier or she went on to vietnam . one of the things he said in one of her speeches was this is a headline . she said people should consider buying their christmas presents right now
because of supply chain problems all around the world . that's the news from our vice president. by christmas presents in august. >> that scares me because thatsounds like shutdown . that sounds like we're going to expect the economy is basically goingto be locked down again and that's frightening . the democrats have used the pandemic to control americans and basically, that sounds like a very dangerous warning sign. steve, she's coming to california to help soon to be recalled governor newsom and she's the most unpopular and in my opinion the most unqualified person to serve as vicepresident . what can she offered to people in california? she's known for one thing: the failure of the southern border and that failure has impacted california and this is in total disaster .
that is why newsom is in trouble. >> steve: she's trying to get ahead of the christmas present problem. by your christmas presents in august. >> exactly andthat's a dangerous sign. it shows the economy or the democrats will try to shut down the economy . that is concerning to me. >> steve:meanwhile it is not christmas in august when it comes to the weather, is it ? >> it feels hot for a lot of areas across the mississippi river valley, into the hundred degree range but a lot of 70s on the map but with thehumidity it feels even warmer. let's take a look where we could see the potential for severe storms . we had a severe weather box across portions of minnesota and a severe weatherstorm or central wisconsin soap large hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes .
we said goodbye to henri, that area of low pressure is offshore and it looks like a dry day for tennessee where they had record rainfall on monday. so not seeming like christmas time at all. all right,over to you . >> ainsley: that's very true. as the reality of the taliban rule returns to afghanistan americans are trying to get their friends out. our next guest list in kabul working for an international american school funded by the state department and now they're back home in nebraska. they made it their mission to rescue their formerstudents and they just made it happen. can and erin jensen join us now. i'll start with you because when we were booking this
segment you were still trying to get them home . we learned they are home safely, how did that happen ? >> it happened through the most amazing men and women. we are working with marines who are putting their livesin danger to make this happen. marine wives who are coming together we can make this happen so i am so incredibly thankful for the people we come into contactwith that are like , we will find a way and they found a way . >> ainsley: how did they do it specifically? >> it's definitely a team effort. we're watching behind-the-scenes as these people are giving emails and text messages and going in every direction at all times of day andnight and we can't say enough for the people that you don't see who are really true heroes making all thiswork . >> ainsley: erin, i know you said their teenagers now but when they lived there your kids were younger. these are children your
children played with . we're trying to save their lives,tell us more aboutthe people that you help get home . >> they are some of the most amazing people. they played with our children . they are kids who want a first world education. they want to be leaders in their nation and we believe firmly the taliban will not last and we will need leaders inafghanistan and we believe these kids will be training and educated and ready to returnwhen they leave their country . >>there the cream of the crop and we're continuing to invest in them and one day they will lead a free afghanistan . >> ainsley: are they going to live withyou guys ? >> we have a lot of options, some may live with us and some may live with neighbors and friends . >> ainsley: you werethe principal of this school and afghanistan western mark . >> that's correct. >> ainsley: we're hearing
thesestories that peopleare fearful are not going to let the kids get educated .they might marry off these little girls when they're 13 years old, 12 years old, is that your fear ? >> except for religious studies these kids,especially young women will not be educated . they're going to spend most of their time shotindoors and i'm very concerned about that . we need to keep the education going for these young women and really for all young people in afghanistan so that is a huge concern .>> ainsley: erin,30 seconds . i know they tried toescape and went to the airport, what was that like ? >> is completely unnerving. i don't think as american people we know what feels like to be that much of a risk. they are leaving not knowing if they will ever see their home again or their family membersagain and having no idea what lies in front of them . they are so brave and i cannot say enough for our
marines who've been working with us. you know who you are and the marine wives that made this happen. >> ainsley: you also got back your interpreter and their daughter and in addition to that the three teenage girls and that oneteenage boy, god bless them . thank you for saving their lives their futures will be different because of what you did . thank you. nfl superstar tom bradysays the secret to success is avoiding the blame game . dave portnoy knows a thing or twoabout winning is going to react next . >> tech: that's service you can trust. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ find your rhythm. your happy place. find your breaking point. then break it. every emergen-c gives you a potent blend of nutrients

>> ainsley: he says quote, today the world wants to blame and shame and fear everything all the time. we would never teach our kids that. we would never say this is how you're going to get through life. you're going to blame everyone when things don't go right. >> brian: dave portnoy is here,you love tom brady but do you love them more after that statement ? >> it doesn't surprise me he made it and it speaks to his success and if he was a patriot i would still love him more but it makes perfect sense. it's a trait that most successful people share and it's also something we see a lot people who aren't as successful as they like blaming everybody else for why they're not successful so i agree wholeheartedly. >> brian: we allknow blamer's, people who things don't go there way, they're frustrated they blame
everybody else . they don't do a little self-examination say forget about the blame, this is how i go forward . >> on social media will see it all the time, the amount of people who times don't care for me and all they do isspend their entire lives online . tripping me and saythey did this . if you can just concentrate on yourself and worry about herself you will have a much better life and maybe be more successful but forme, where mary are because we worked harder . we work and now everybody look for excuses and the name game so just worry about herself. >> ainsley: hetalks about the importance of ateam sport and he says it's all about hey, we've got to get better . it's not about i haveall the answers . he said you got toplay together . you played high school
baseball, why are team sports more than just a game ? >> i think tom brady, his success and what he did is bittersweet. when he went from the patriots to the buccaneers, it's not so much he had a rocket arm or his so talented, it's what hebrought to the locker room . it's accountability and when he's standing up and he's the first one in the locker room and the first one to take accountability and tell you how to do things, it trickles down. that's probably the enduring legacy of tom brady. as a team that's how you win. you need your leaders to be the guys that work the hardest. >> brian: he was six choice in michigan and one of the guys in front of him change his mind and he ends up getting drafted and we know the history. to you in particular,use of a big risk starting barstool and i believe you one by trying .
a lot of people say you won because you became a huge star but when you wentin and said i'm going to go for it there's a bracelet in that , isn't it ? >> people always ask me for entrepreneurship and what's the number one advice and it's probably just do it but also we were lucky enough myself and some of the guys still with us, we literally worked 24 seven. i didn't take avacation day for 10 years . i'd rather do that at work or somebody else but it was around the clock a lot of times you hire somebody straight out of college, they think everything shouldbe given to them. they don't understand the amount of work that goes into building something and i think anybody was built their ownbusiness knows it and all the stuff we did , that's because we know how hard it is to do . >> i live in new jersey and i
understand i'm impacted by something barstool is doing . >> thebarstool sports book will be alive for everybody . we finally got to new jersey. i'm a pizza guy and i'm saying a lot of contradictory things because i do not like the new york yankees, i'm a red sox fan but if you go to jersey and you deposit money going to give you up to $100 of free match that's on the yankees which i hope you lose. >> steve: the yankees have won 10 in a row. >> ainsley: i don't know how you stay in such good shape with all that pizza but you do such wonderful things for us . >> brian: ainsley likes your abs. >> ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
