minutes ago making news acknowledging for the first time the stranded planes full of americans and afghan allies are in shareef after congressman michael mccaul sounded the alarm on sunday. in those comments blinken isn't calling it a hostage situation. listen. >> we have been able to identify a relatively small number of americans who we believe are seeking to depart with their families. we have been assured, again that all-american and afghan citizens with valid travel documents will be allowed to leave. griff: this after the state department over the weekend claimed credit for facilitating the rescue of four americans. a mother named meriam and her three kids saved by a private team who got them, drove them other land to the border and got them into another country. congressman markwayne mullin calling blinken's team out tweeting this is a flat out lie. the biden administration abandoned them. let's be clear. it was our team of patriots who worked around the clock for two weeks to get them out despite the many road blocks from the

state department. meanwhile, it's creating bipartisan anger on the hill. democrat senator richard blumenthal said this in a statement, quote: i have been deeply frustrated even furious at our government's delay and inaction. now, last night at the white house, as the president returned from wilming top, well, he wasn't wanting to talk about afghanistan. >> will you recognize the taliban. >> no, that's a long way off. that's a long way off. thank you. >> what's your message. >> will you recognize the taliban? griff: comes as the flag of the taliban is raised over the last providence to fall in the panjshir valley where centcom sources tell fox news pakistan's military played a role in helping the taliban put down the resistance and in kabul these images as the taliban flag painted on the u.s. embassy. it's just quite a telling part of the story. now, blinken continues his trip

3:06 am
fighters. ainsley: you have a democrat, senator richard blumenthal who is furious because he says we're not trying hard enough to get these americans out of afghanistan. you heard griff talk about this lady meriam and her three kids ages 2 to 15. they are american citizens. she went over there to visit her family, her parents. and congressman ronny jackson was saying after two weeks and multiple life threatening attempts we finally are getting her home, thanks to corey mills. corey mills, is a former dod official and combat veteran. and congressman mullin who is a republican out of oklahoma, he got an email from one of his friends who said will you please go save meriam and her kids. he contacted corey mills. and corey mills and veterans got her out. is he going to be on our show talking to brian at 6:30 this morning. steve: she tried two weeks. apparently the congressman's office tried to get her on those flights out of harmid car xie international airports when they were still flying them these
3:07 am
guys went over land into a country not releasing name they are trying to get more people out through that way. corey is going to be talking about what they did took credit we helped no. they didn't. ainsley: the taliban held her at gunpoint. steve: when she went to the airport. you have been here before. don't ever come back. it's like okay, i'm not coming back. that's when cory sprang into action. brian: lawmakers condemnation from both sides of the aisle. i like the fact that those two congressman went over to the kabul airport to harmid karzai airport to see for themselves. i love the fact that the other republican congressman went over and did the same thing. he came out and he gets condemned mark wayne mullin of
3:08 am
oklahoma. he says i want to help out. i'm seeing all these calls because the state department is not doing their job. in case you think these are republicans trying to make a democratic administration look bad. they can do it themselves. they have proven that david brodie from new says the white house and u.s. state department are holding up charter planes at airport that would transport 19 americans and 40 sivs to al bane i can't. i want to repeat that quote: it is the state department and the white house. ainsley: they said americans are just sitting on the planes waiting to take off. brian: look at the satellite photo. michael mccaul in a statement from chris wallace says oh yes we have six planes waiting at the airport. chris says what? i haven't heard of this. nobody outside of kabul got to the airport. in kabul you cut get tarpt. why wouldn't there be sivs or americans or green card holders outside in afghanistan? steve: it is just a disaster. let's bring in pete hegseth "fox & friends weekend" co-host and
3:09 am
former gitmo guard and we will talk more about gitmo in a moment. pete: good morning, guys. steve: good morning. you are joining us from the twin cities today. good to have you. what do you make of the state department trying to say yeah, we were in on rescuing the mom and her three kids when they had nothing to do with it? at the end of the journey they go welcome. and that was it. pete: absolute garbage. this story is one i have been hearing time and time again behind the scenes firsthand from people working to get siv holders and citizens out of afghanistan. mazda russia reef is one of the locations. there are others. this is one instance. there are many others there are planes that have been called back. they have been actually released to fly and mid flight the state department is standing between the freedom of our allies and a are past with the taliban. i don't know what it is. i don't know if it's
3:10 am
bureaucratic incompetence which is a portion of it. i don't know if it's a desire to hold it back so they can try to take credit like we are seeing right now. i don't know if it's some sort california with the taliban. brian: there you go. pete: they want to see it fulfilled that could be part of it any one of those three is unacceptable considering the fact that there are vets or the ground wanting to get groups out. you. jillian: i know you were at gitmo and all these 9/11 terrorists still there. and the pre-trial starts today this week starts today and khalid sheikh mohammed architect of 9/11. conspiracies, attacking. causing serious bodily injury. murder. in violation of the law of war. hijacking or hazarding a vessel or aircraft and terrorism how many pre-trials? 40 oso far?
3:11 am
>> when there were almost 700 detain years at gitmo. guantanamo bay. i was a guard there we were really excited because the trials were finally getting started. we were moving up to the new commission hall which had just been built to allow for media and translators and others. we thought okay. all these years we're finally going to start these trials. that was our thinking in 2005. fast forward to 2021 and we are having the pre-trial for ksm who by the way probably wasn't even at guantanamo bay by that time. there is questions about when he actually arrived. i think it was later than that but the supreme court stepped in multiple times. congress we wrote the law multiple times. ultimately international lawyers and others who wanted to gunk up the mix and wanted to create rights, con be constitutional rights for 'terrorists created a process that was almost gobble get past. here we are in 2021 with only a handful of people there and khalid sheikh mohammed might
3:12 am
actually get -- by the way he released a manifesto during that time. they have great healthcare and lots of opportunities to speak their mind. now he will have a day in court. we will see if it holds up and if it actually happens. this is not how you win a are with a. just like we saw in afghanistan you don't win a war by allowing for constitutional rights for your enemies, allowing them to speak out-to-against you while they stay alive and ultimately getting to pre-trial 20 years later. it's ineffectual. brian: ksm admitted he wanted to die as a march t wait a second, he gave up that testimony after he was waterboarded. so now everything becomes it's going to be the torture trial. they are going to talk about how bad americans, how bad it was because we did enhanced interrogation. by the way we saved subsequent attacks because of that and intelligence that's got has been invaluable including usama bin laden. the other guy wall lead to be is
3:13 am
the one who took care of the hamburg sale the other one paid mohammed atta to go ahead and pull off the hijacking, the flight classes in america. so these other two are equally evil and ksm went to north carolina nicknamed pluto because such clown and loser. ends up coming back and blowing up in a way that we could not have thought imaginable. pete: good history lesson how it's all connected together. we don't know any of that without the interrogations that happened around khalid sheikh mohammed. ultimately we were told we were not abiding by the good evenings with the way we are connecting military try bibles and military interrogation. last time i checked taliban and financial al-qaeda were not signators of the geneva convention. you have to be a signatory to be applied to you as combatant and
3:14 am
in this particular case they don't have it. brian: no theatrics a pre-trial hearing. that's it. what great timing days before 9/11. 20 years later. pete: exactly. no justice because we didn't fight it seriously the way we should have. thank you. steve: the question is whether l. they ever, ever, ever be held accountable for what they did? brian: listen 39 prisoners, $13 million a year to house each one. $13 million. ainsley: versus 70,000 if we house them. brian: how much electric do you need to thought put them in the electric chair and get rid of them? steve: here's the thing they are actually building on to the facility. spending millions more dollars to build a new top secret interrogation room or something. ainsley: 6:14 on the east coast. the patriarch of a prominent south carolina family now entering rehab after being shot months after the unsolved murder of his wife and son. hear the shocking admission as this investigation continues.

well as congressman markwayne mullin he is heavily involved in this as well. we had an actual ability with all of our special operations background to go in, identify, look at the various strategic planning and then try to plan evacs. originally it was air evac. that was absolutely thwarted by the centcom command and the state department when we tried to land our plane. we had approved ppr. we had a crew fly over approval faa. our plane had been designated as emergency humanitarian aircraft didn't have to meet just the seat standards but actually do weight and balance standard. which meant i could have up to 25 americans, brian on to that plane. and like 9,000 feet in dissent landing gear down with approved landing they waived us off. brian: unbelievable. did they give you an explanation why? >> they gave no explanation.
3:37 am

3:39 am
agreement. we have no coordination with the americans to allow you to pass. and, you know, there is a whole string of things that he was basically noting as far as you requested these lob docked down why should we reopen now? we had to go through a shell game trickery and multiple phones to getting malawi to contact. that's how we eventually tricked them into allowing once clearance to get this family across. right now, this is the greatest part, brian, we literally were on the tenth hour. we were told by the state department officials here hey, i'm sorry, the border is totally locked now. the taliban issued issued will american go through or not because they're waiting to establish their government and nothing more they could do. it was our team that was basically able to trick the taliban commander to letting them through because they thought had a number doha and we convinced them that doha where the leadership was had approved this and had another malawi basically say the same thing

steve: this week as america marks 20 years since the september 11th attacks, we remember those lost and honor the first responders who face unbelievable odds. our next guests are among the few survivors who ran into the world trade center building on that day. fire department of new york firefighter tim brown was one of the first ones inside the south tower. he had just run outside for help as the second plane hit surrounding him in rubble. port authority canine unit officer dave limb was directing people to the stairwells when
3:46 am
the north tower collapsed on top of them. he survived inside a pocket of stairwell b where the only way out was up and tim and dave join us live near in new york today. good morning both to of you. >> dave, as the evacuation was going on. there was one woman who was having trouble and you said you know what? i'm going to stay here and help you, tell us about her: well, i was in tower 1 in b stairwell as you just said and i was coming down with a lot of people from my own job, the port authority police, and i saw harris, this woman sitting on the steps on the fifth floor. and the ladder company six and nine were inside looking for a chair to put her in to bring her downstairs she couldn't get up. myself and billy butler picked
3:47 am
her up and started carrying her down the stairs. now, the real important part of that story is if we had not stopped to help this woman, we would not be here having this discussion right now because immediately after we got started going down the stairs, the building collapsed around her. and if we had not taken her down slowly like we did, we would have been outside and killed. steve: that stairwell protected you only 16 people survived. >> yes. most of news that stairwell. and so we called josephine our guardian angel. unfortunately she passed away in 2011. but i had the honor of being one of the paul barriers with the fire department personnel at her funeral i went into
3:48 am
the north tower to help manage command post on behalf of the mayor. when the second tower was hit myself and assistant chief donald burns from the fire department went to the south tower. i wound up ending leaving the south tower to get the paramedics outside. there were a lot of people in the lobby badly injured. we were on the sidewalk on liberty street next to the south tower when it collapsed. we ran next door into the marriott hotel and the marriott hotel collapsed around us. approximately 35 people in that area of the hotel, the lobby and the restaurant lived. i was never [inaudible] or are injured and i was able to get out on my own along with a bunch of civilians and firefighters.
3:49 am
steve: you were actually in the explosion and the attack in '93. >> yes. >> back in '93 they said stay at your desk, everybody, we are going to come rescue you. never in a million years did you think those towers were going to fall? >> no one. the chief who was our special operations expert said early on in the offense on september 11th that what we expected was the fire to burn up in the towers and not for them not to collapse. that's what we believed. he was the one that we really all relied on. steve: it's hard to believe it was 20 years. unbelievable. twice, thank you very much. and thanks for your service keeping all of us safe. >> thank you for having us. thank you. steve: all right. coming up on 10 minutes before the top of the hour. senior meteorologist janice dean is live from the 9/11 memorial at town park in point lookout, new york on this tuesday morning. j.d.?

janice: hi, good morning, steve. we're going to talk to officials here in the 7:00 hour and one of my good friends robin who knows ray pfeiffer who died of 9/11 related illnesses a couple years ago. his name is on the wall at point lookout along with all the victims who died on that fateful day almost 20 years ago. we have steel from the world trade center. the north tower that fell. this is one of my favorite memorials. i hope you will stay with us during "fox & friends." we have some important things to talk about remembering that fateful day on 9/11 when we lost so many and the world changed. the weather here is spectacular on long island. i think my friend ray pfeiffer who lived in this area has everything to do with the fact that we have beautiful conditions. we're going to go towards 83 today and then the chance for showers and thunderstorms wednesday night into thursday, of course we are going to be at different memorials all week. i believe we are at staten island tomorrow. we will also visit new jersey and i think they are going to take me on fdny fire boat as well. there is the forecast for
3:51 am
saturday on 9/11. it's going to be an absolutely spectacular day. >> we have reminiscent of the day we lost some when it was clear blue skies and the world changed forever. steve, back to you. steve and never forget. j.d., thank you very much. all right. coming up on nine minutes before the top of the hour and jillian joins us with a whole bunch of news. jillian: that's right. good morning, steve. let's begin with this. the justice department vowing to protect abortion seekers in texas after a new state law allows private citizens to enforce the ban. the new law prohibits abortions once cardiac activity can be detected which is usually around six weeks. portland city council votes tomorrow halt the goods and services from texas a las vegas mother is demanding a teacher resign after allegedly tape ago mask to her 9-year-old son. she claims the substitute teacher committed the act when a boy stood up for water break but forgot his mask. clark county school district

3:53 am
are bad? >> well, that's the biggest reason. look, this past month is going to be over 200,000 again. they haven't announced it yet but it's over 200,000. they haven't announced it but trying to figure a way to spin it. they can't survive this they can't take this beating every month. i'm sure there is people at the white house that are not an idiot that realize that, look, this is going to hurt you was in the midterms. so understand this first of all, they are going to reinstate remain in mexico program at least they were supposed to because they were ordered by the court system. i have been involved in three lawsuits. i wrote more affidavits suing this president than did i my entire career. we won the moratorium on deportations and won the remain in mexico program. these people have to be ordered by the courts do their job. what's the first thing they deal? they appeal their decision because they want to continue doing what they're doing. i'm convinced people in the white house saying look, this is bad, this isn't working. we are going to lose the midterms and probably the white house if we don't change
3:54 am
policies and control the border. ainsley: there was a guy on fox several times brent smith a ranchner kenny, texas, he said he has had to spend $60,000 to repair the fences on his property. he said he has found three bodies in the area last week. he says if you don't have a gun you are going out on your own risk owe says we can't walk in our backyards even during the daylight. what are some of the stories you heard down there? >> i walked to one sheriff last month found 48 today migrants in his county alone. 48. one county out of hundreds of counties on the southwest border. the thing i hear the most is it about right now it's missing families, right? over 112,000 children have entered this country illegally, which is the highest number in the history of the border patrol came out last week about 40% of family unit can't be found. now they attacked the trump administration for 2500 family separations but in the meantime they have 45,000 children they
3:55 am
can't find this is inhumane policy. had children are dying. record amount of fentanyl in this country caused over 90,000 overdose death. they are not doing a thing about it they had to be ordered by the court to do anywhere job and secure the border they are not doing it to secure the border. only reason interested in changing some of these policies at all? ainsley: they texas and arizona and some of here to other states to turn blue. >> they are afraid they will lose the midterms because of the border crisis. this is about politics. this isn't about doing the right thing for this country. looking to get back to some of the trump policies because of the election. about their political future. not the safety and security of our country. ainsley: yeah. then you have the afghanistan problem. what do you expect in the midterm elections?
3:56 am
>> let's not leave afghanistan problem. the border is now vulnerable than it's ever opinion. we already know border patrol. that's why the fentanyl is coming across. 1. million encounters already on the border. thousands of terrorists have been released from the prisons in afghanistan whose sole purpose in life is to do harm to this country. if you are a terrorist and want to do harm to country can't get a plane ticket visa because of the checks of 9/11. come across the southwest border the same way 20 million others did. ainsley: very scary. i read a story this morning that thousands of them have been deemed at risk the ones that we have taken in from afghanistan. thank you so much, tom, for being on with us. the state department is now accused of stealing credit for the first ground rescue of four americans of afghanistan. senator tom cotton will react at the top of the hour. ♪

ainsley: yeah it does. summer is over phis, it is. fall is actually a beautiful season. steve: absolutely. ainsley: so fun to sit outside at the restaurants because it's a little cooler. brian: still not there yet. i still consider this summer. steve: you are in denial. brian: yes, i am. unbelievable this year like any others. wrestling with the mask mandate and vaccine debate. everybody goes to school. i watch for the first time in my life i have been lived in the same town for quite a number of years huge protests down a main thoroughfare of people saying let us make the choice on masks we have this new governor of new york who looks awful mask mandate for everybody instead of leaving it to the individual distribution and then you find out that is the raging debate across the country. meanwhile the other big story that everybody on the left wants to go away that is the mission mess in afghanistan. ainsley: there was a family meriam is the mother's name. she has three children ages 2 to 15. and she was begging and pleading please, america, help me get out. she went to the airport several

times the taliban put a gun to her head and said go away and don't ever come back. congressman mullen who is a republican out of oklahoma, he got an email from a friend who said can you please help mere lamb. >> he went to work and he sat down with core mills, they came up a comment bat veteran here is he describing going over there and rescuing meriam the first ground rescue since the taliban took over. here he is. >> he we were told it? >> was our team who was able to basically able to trick the taliban commander into letting them through because they thought our [inaudible] had a number was doha and we convinced them that doha where the leadership was had approved it
4:04 am
and that enabled us to back them through at the enth hour. steve: they were able to get the mother and family out from that check point. someone who helped rescue one american very prominently on our show two weeks ago. remember we talked live to haroon who was trying to get out and back to colorado? arkansas senator. , senate armed services committee. senator, good morning to you cory mills helped rescue that mother and her children. turns out of the state department now trying to take credit for it. they showed up at the very end. they pretty much stood in the way from start to almost the finish but at the end they are saying hey, welcome to the embassy. now they are claiming credit for
4:05 am
the administration. >> >> yeah. steve. first off let me commend cory mills and so many other veterans over the last three weeks sacrificed time and money in many cases to help fellow americans get out of afghanistan or in some cases the afghan interpreters who served locally beside them. there are real heroes of this tragedy: not surprising that the state department higher ups come rushing in any time they see a good news story and try to take credit of it really nothing but bad news about joe biden and tony blinken state department it continues to be the case that we have, perhaps, hundreds of americans effectively held hostage by the taliban inside of afghanistan. who are probably trying to he is distract who knows what kind of confessions from the biden administration. i will worry they will grant those concessions because they want afghanistan off the front pages and out of the mind of the american people. as long as our fellow americans
4:06 am
are stranded there we are not going to forget this catastrophe. brian: working with the foundation helping support them financially to do this. you know, i saw ron klain over the weekend. he is the chief of staff for president biden says there is about 100 left. we have been in touch with all of them. there is no way that's true and according to cory mills there is many more than 100 left. outside kabul, no one has gotten out. senator, we sit there. you are working the phone. senator blumenthal left wing senate democrat, is he outraged, too. are we just going to sit there and take it and allow them to play politics with people's lives and embarrass us internationally? is there anything we can do? >> >> no, brian. you are right. we are not. you are right that senator blumenthal and his team has been working on this issue very hard. we worked with them as well. trying to get these americans out of afghanistan. i understand the administration wants to turn the page. they want this out of the news. they want to focus on their
4:07 am
reckless $3.5 trillion spending will. a lot of members of congress are not going to rest until every american and every permanent resident in afghanistan can get out of afghanistan. we are working on trying to get people out across the borders or on flights across afghanistan. some of the outlying cities. we are are not going to forget our fellow americans left behind in afghanistan. ainsley: yeah. when you look at the polls it says 60% disapprove of the way that biden has handled afghanistan. only 30% approve. there is stunning video, too. out of germany. this is at the 'ramstein air base. welcoming afghan refugees. look at this video. this is a two mile runway. it's covered in tents. this is a tent city now. i was listening to ric grenell and he was saying he was being told because he was the ambassador there being told by people that he worked with that the biden administration is rushing people through if they don't even have the proper documents. are you worried about the
4:08 am
vetting process? i'm up credibly worried the tent city the lie president biden planning for every contingency. if they known this was going to come together they wouldn't have slapped together a tent city in the span of a couple days. we have had many reports of afghans who have failed our vetting processes as meager as those are some have even come to america and been sent else somewhere. in many cases in the early days after the fall of kabul. afghans who had no particular ties to our military. who had not provid vied direct troops were able to get on planes and get out of the country. many case no, sir way to vet them. no sources on the ground in afghanistan anymore. they can run a name or supposed name or maybe some fingerprints through incomplete databases and if it doesn't come back with a hit you must be good to go. we have no idea who these people
4:09 am
are whether or not they pose a security risk and accept our way of life constitutional government and quality of citizens or if they are even if violation of u.s. laws against trafficking. we have heard reports fort mccoy, wisconsin, grown men showing up with children as so-called brides or polygamous marriages as well. this goes back to joe biden's decision to withdrawal leaving behind tens of thousands of afghans who did support of our troops and serve alongside us while bringing out of afghanistan tens of thousands of afghans who may have had no connect whatsoever. all of our allies have said they are going to have to come to america eventually unless we find some other place for them. steve: senator, should would he be surprised that the perhaps lack of vetting as people come into the united states via afghanistan look at the vetting that is going on on our southern border for the most part it's just come on in call an ice
4:10 am
office some day when you feel like it and we will set up a court date. >> yeah. they share a lot of similarities, steve. but, you know it's shocking that the biden administration is saying that the afghan border is closed and there is nothing they can do to help get americans out across the afghan border or help neighboring countries like tajikistan and uzbekistan secure its border our border is still wide open. most of these afghans who supported news afghanistan who joe biden left behind would have a better chance of getting the u.s. if they could somehow get a flight to mexico and get a flight across our southern border. that is appalling. brian: what is our military bases being used for a day care center for all the unaccompanied minors? now we understand that the bases have been told to make spots for 50,050,000 afghans. do you know how much this operation is costing us? they say an average afghan $250,000 don't stay our cities are pour. we need this type of sending. we are spending so much money on
4:11 am
worst evacuation and end to a conflict in the history of our country. $50,000 spots in military bases do. we have any room to train anybody except to sit there and house people that really in many cases don't belong here? >> and, brian, the demands on our personnel are massive as well. going to end up costing billions of dollars and many of these bases it will be akin to what we have seen at the border. i have been to the border earlier this year. we saw border patrol officers who signed up to be law enforcement actually having to work as nannies and babysitters and day care operator. watching out for all of the children that were showing up at the border. now we are impressing soldiers into doing the same thing when you are right. they should be training. they should be focusing on the mission of deterring our adversaries. to say nothing of the billions of dollars this is going to cost american taxpayers. ainsley: senator, stick around for us if we would. we going to talk to you about gitmo and get your reaction after this report. the accused mastermind of 9/11
4:12 am
attacks will return to the guantanamo bay courtroom in a couple of hours. steve: lucas tomlinson is live on gitmo. he is on the island ahead of the hearing. lucas, good morning. >> good morning, guys, 20 years after the 9/11 attacks, the accused mastermind khalid sheikh mohammed never faced a trial. one of the victim's brothers doubts justice will ever be served. >> i don't expect too much out of them this week, you know, those hearings down there have been a comedy of errors now. we have a defense team has no interest in justice. >> khalid sheikh mohammed better known by initials ksm charged with killing 3,000 people on 9/11 his idea to hijack airliners and use them as flying bombs. in kuwait ksm went to a small college in north carolina before graduating to a life of terrorism beginning in afghanistan. he will be in the courtroom here in gitmo along with four other
4:13 am
high profile prisoners in about an hour including his nephew. they are not expected to say anything today just largely procedural for defense team meeting their six military judge. one of 39 prisoners remaining here down from a height of 680 during the bush administration. today it costs nearly $1 million a year to house each prisoner compared to 70,000 a year for a convicted terrorist super max prison in colorado. about an hour from now that prisoners will be put into the courtroom. fox news will be there sitting behind some very thick glass. guys? steve: i bet. lucas, thank you very much. let's bring in back in senator tom cotton. senator, here we are the week of september 11th, 20 years later and these guys have not been brought to justice. at the same time, it's a problematic case because in the beginning waterboard and stuff like that. the supreme court says they have got to pass a law. 2007, anything they said while they were during the enhanced
4:14 am
interrogation you can't use so they did it again now lawyers. the fbi got out of them can't be used in court. so where are we? disgrace ksm still drawing breath on this earth. i have long said these people after finished with any useful intelligence value should have faced a court-martial and execution. we have an army of liberal lawyers and judges in washington who are apparently more sympathetic to terrorist master minds than they are to the 9/11 families. these proceedings need to move along though and move along as quickly as they can so those families can finally get the justice that they have so long been denied. brian: remember, because we got them. because we kept them. we were able to get intelligence that allowed us to identify the courier that allowed us to kill bin laden. so these guys have some value to us even though the further they are removed from the
4:15 am
battlefield. brian: hierarchy of al-qaeda. they throw out the enhanced interrogation. i'm worried about the case. >> continuing release them valuable as well. some of the guantanamo prisoners barack obama released for a trader russ american soldier have gone onto the battlefield in afghanistan in leadership roles. intelligence value. they have continuing operational value to their terrorist values afghanistan and around the world. steve: it is super frustrating because of people like to see justice. senator, thank you very much for joining us on this tuesday. ainsley: thank you, senator. okay. jillian has some headlines.

when the leaf blower was invented? steve: so, as mark was talking, you know, that mother, american mother, stuck over there, her name is miriam, has her three kids, she's told she reaches out to a congressman and they say okay we'll do our best why don't you try to get on an american flight and she apparently had passage into the airport but the taliban stopped her each time, and famously for her, the last time she went, some guy with a pistol, a taliban guy, put the gun up to her head and said essentially you've been here before don't ever come back so then they went into plan b, which was to charter a plane but the state department wouldn't allow it to take off, so that team right there, with corey mill, got her across, first land passage into another country. we don't know which one, but now , the state department is trying to take credit. oh, look how we got these
5:06 am
americans out. state department didn't do anything but obstruct until the last step where they welcom ed them at the embassy. ainsley: she was there visiting her parents, and the guy who helped corey mills whose a combat veteran, brian interview ed him in the beginning of the show. it was a wonderful interview. he's just a saint and a hero for going over there, and potentially saving all four of those lives, and they relied on him. he got them out. here he is. >> we're told by the state department officials here, hey, i'm sorry. the taliban issued an order from doha that no one goes through, and there's nothing more we could do. it was our team who was able to basically trick the taliban commander into letting them through because they thought one of my staff was doha and we convinced them that the leadership was, and that enabled us tok pass them through steve: so the phone saved their
5:07 am
life. he says look at that. oh, yeah, let them through. so -- brian: and the state department , we facilitated the safe departure of four u.s. citizens on monday. it's the first land evacuation and there's many more. we heard chairman of the joint chief of staff say we've been in touch with the hundreds left in afghanistan. we're in touch with all of them. you really think there's exactly 100 and in fact i asked corey directly. he goes i think there's many more than 100. not only did the state department not help, they hurt, but he doesn't want to macon e anys right now. he just wants to get people out. unlike the state department whose looking to try to just convince us that this evacuation is all going extremely well. senator tom cotton knows differently. listen. >> let me commend corey mills and so many other veterans over the last three weeks who have worked tirelessly, who have sacrificed their time and their money and in many case there's are real heros of this tragedy. it's not surprisingly the state department higher ups have come
5:08 am
rushing in anytime they see a good news story and try to take credit for it since its really been nothing but bad news for joe biden and tony blinken's state department, and it continues to be the case that we have perhaps hundreds of americans effectively held hostage by the taliban inside of afghanistan. steve: so we learned about that family, because they reached out to their congressman, congressman ronny jackson. he was the president's doctor for a very long time. he reached out to corey, put him on contact, regarding the state department taking the credit dr. ronny jackson said this. the only thing the biden administration seems to be good at is patting itself on the back for a job horribly done. this administration left my constituents behind in afghanistan, and now, they're lying about their role in getting these four american citizens out. ainsley: we have to also give credit to congressman mullin, the republican from oklahoma, who got the original e-mail finding out about them, but this family is from texas an that's how dr. ronny jackson
5:09 am
got involved because he represents that district but corey, the guy who went into rescue them, he's running for congress. he's also a former dod employee but running for could be researcher his name is corey mills. brian: they pulled out 122000 and they are so proud and for the men and women who pulled that off you should be proud for the ones who planned it and plotted it and they roughed it out before this actually happened you should be embarrassed because you left americans behind out of the 122000, you didn't even include the majority of the sib , the people that actually helped us as interpreters or actually picked up a gun and fought side by side with us. you just picked up anybody, it seems, and now we got to make room on our military base for 50,000 afghans, many of which they might be great people , they might not. we have no idea in many cases who they are. is this the way to run an evacuation? this makes vietnam look like a great idea. you thought the saigon moment that we all saw was embarrassing think about the ongoing embarrassment as the rest of the world wonders is this the

, the popular approval of the president is in the toilet because of the way he did it. i think only 30% now approve of the way we got out of afghanistan. ainsley: it's not even that high steve: i know so that's a problem going into the mid-terms and so is what's happening at our southern border and that's why last week when the supreme court said hey, biden administration, you've got to reinstate donald trump's remain in mexico policy people are going you know what? if we do that, that would give us political cover, so that the democrats who we promised we would get rid of it we'll have to say hey, look the supreme court is making us do this again but it's a way to turn off the flow, the gusher of people into our southern border because that's not helpful to the administration. ainsley: well now there's a report out this morning that they were already planning on looking at that like a light version of remain in mexico. tom who man says no, they are being forced to look at that, because the courts are making them. listen. >> reinstate your remain in
5:12 am
mexico program, at least you're supposed to, because they were ordered the courts to do it. i've been involved in three lawsuit, ainsley. i've written more affidavits suing this president than i did during my entire career. these people have to be ordered the court toss do their job and what's the first thing they do? they appeal the decision because they are going to continue doing what the they are doing but i'm convinced people in the white house are saying look this is bad. this isn't working, we're going to lose the mid-terms and the white house if we don't change policies and control the border. brian: the remain in mexico policy, you need mexico's cooperation, and most importantly, for it to work, you need a place that everyone knows when they come, they'll stay, and we're going to get through your process when your processed you'll get across then the message comes across that you'll get stopped in mexico, and that'll begin to ease the flow, especially if mexico agrees like they did with president trump to stop the , to put 20,000 marines at their southern border. now, keep in mind one of the first things that president biden said was it was a violation of international law for us to have remain in mexico
5:13 am
policy. that and so did the city and the president of mexico, he goes really i'm cooperating with you and now you're saying i'm violating international law? don't they understand, these are the guys that are supposed to be the adults in the room. he has relationships with all these nations and all these major players, and he makes mistake after mistake. robert bernard writes this senior advocacy council for refugees, he said the most frustrating part of the last eight months is the constantly changing policies and the situation on the border particularly for the asylum seekers, because they are on the other side thinking that if we wait, biden is going to vent open up the ports of entry and allow us all in. that is why our border patrol is overturned. because of the messaging from candidate biden and president biden, and he's so scared of his left he won't do what's right for the country. ainsley: this goes back to tom h oman also connected afghanistan with our southern border because he said in afghanistan, when you listen to ric grenell who used to be the ambassador of germany, he was saying that his people in
5:14 am
germany that are on the ground, he said the biden administration they are rushing people through, even if they don't have the proper documents, because a lot of these afghans are there at the ramstein air base in germany, and tom homan said same thing is happening on the southern border any can travel right in not being vetted at all. brian: and new mexico it's also bad. a working class area of new mexico city, 17,000 people at the foot of mount crisco ray, but it turned into ground zero, tens of thousands of migrants crossing illegally into the u.s. the last few years now if you're a new mexico resident how could you feel good about this administration? they are thumbing their nose and telling you, we don't care. in arizona, they are saying we don't care, deal with it, law enforcement. i'm trying to defund you anyway, and in mexico a lot of attention belongs there, of course but at least they're trying to stop it but if the federal government is
5:15 am
allowing it to happen and taking their time to fix it and hoping you'll look away, but the people in those areas can't look away. they can't afford to. it's what they live with with border patrol they live with it everyday. steve: now the administration is terrified that the border and immigration and afghanistan are going to cost them the mid-terms the one subject that the president is still has a better than 50% approval rating is regarding what is going, how they are handling covid. the very latest news from as you look at today, on the calendar, it's the day after labor day. for the most part everybody gets back-to-school this week or next week as well, but when you look at the schools that have been open a couple of weeks in is places down south have been open since the end of july, so far, you know, everybody is trying t do in-person learning. so far, 1,200 schools in 31 states have had to shutdown because of raging covid infections among the kids.
5:16 am
the problem is if you're 12 or under, the vaccine has not been approved yet, so a lot of kids in high school and junior high or middle school have gotten the vaccine, but the little kids under 12, they haven't and that's why it is a wildfire in the schools. ainsley: there was a big school board meeting richardson public school district which is in the dallas area and there's one elementary school there that did shutdown almost 30 kids i think 26 or 29 kids came down with covid out of more than 800 at the school so they shutdown the school. parents some of them were outraged here is a video of the school board, and two of the women that stood up and talked and were begging them to please not close the schools and come up with other options and i'm the mom and i want to make the decision for my children kind of thing were on our show. listen to two of the ladies. >> it's a challenge. i really don't have the money for additional child care and you know, finding an alternative environment and it's not baby sitting it needs to be education
5:17 am
>> i'm worried about the kids we can't find and worried about the kids that rely on school breakfast and lunch to feed them during the week, specifically at my school. sending, you know, 20% of healthy children home to learn from an ipad just isn't acceptable to me. steve: and see , you know, we all want our kids in school, and so they are trying their best but then when there's an outbreak in a classroom what are you supposed to do? dr. marty makary doesn't know whether or not this approach is a good one here he is from earlier on fox news. >> quarantine students for exposure sake at this point does not make sense and if you do so there's really no way to avoid almost every kid or half the school being quarantined and schools in europe they decided to pullback on the quarantining part because it be like saying hey i just took the train in new york and i was around about 1 million people, if everyone was connected to somebody, and it doesn't make sense to shutdown, you know, a million people just because of one exposure. brian: discourages people from
5:18 am
going to school to begin with. i know the athletes in the second semester when they started playing sports again, they go we're not going to school. we're going to have to do remote learning because all of a sudden you get contact traced you feel fine, you don't have the virus, you never test positive but because you're in the vicinity of somebody that tests positive, you go home. so for two weeks. it's frustrating. they could be making adjustments steve: in the state of mississippi, 13,000 students have tested positive for coronavirus. 13,000 since they reopened but they sent 20,000 into quarantine over the past three weeks, so that is just a state of whereas kids go back-to-school, this is something that all the experts are going to be watching. ainsley: if you're on the school board now during covid bless your heart. 8:18 here on the east coast. expanded unemployment benefits are coming to an end cutting off

money runs out, but you're not going to see an immediate reaction. brian: i thought joe manchin is trying to save the country from the 3.5 trillion we can't afford which is basically cradle to grave safety net which is a nice thought but unaffordable in our current system but doesn't seem to matter to democrats but in that column i saw this one line i want to bounce off you. manchin complained the republicans used the reconciliation package of trump's tax cuts in 2017 and it only benefited rich investors more than workers while adding 1 trillion to the national debt. do you want to take on that statement because i don't believe it's rooted in fact. charles: well, first of all, all of this money printing whether it's a federal reserve or the federal government is going to help corporations because eventually, people go out and spend that money and guess what? it goes to the bottom line and when those bottom lines get bad, stocks go up. here is the beautiful thing if you live in america open up an account in the market by 9:30 today. so those kind of things are just completely just land mines of
5:26 am
miss truths and disingenuinous. now as far as the labor market is concerned, the wage market is concerned, the very month that president trump's tax cuts went into effect, blue collar wages surged. they went ahead of inflation, they grew well over 3% every single month year-over-year, and it was the first time in more than a decade, brian, more than a decade that blue collar wages outpaced not only overall wages but inflation and the reason i bring up inflation is key. every single month this year, inflation month-to-month has wiped out any job gains and here is what's really kind of interesting. since that $1.9 trillion went into effect, the so-called rescue plan, here is what your real wages did. not nominal wages but when you go to the supermarket, and in april they were down 3.7% year-over-year, in may 2.8%, in june 1.6% and july 1.2%, wages are actually down because we put so much money into this economy,
5:27 am
that prices have gone through the roof. brian: someone should talk about inflation because if you're worried about both people say why am i getting less and paying more when i go shopping? who did what and whose responsible, and by the way, morgan stanley now predicts the economy will grow annually by just 2.9%, instead of 6.5% real quick on that? charles: yeah, they dropped their number four times in the last four weeks. we've got some problems here. people have to eventually get back to work. i understand if you want to hold out, want more money, want hybrid work, there's a lot of things happening psychological, but we're in a dangerous place. we just squandered the greatest jobs market ever if people don't start to go back to work. brian: charles payne we'll watch making money at 2:00 on fox business if that's okay with you. charles: that be great. brian: meanwhile another twist in the south carolina murder mystery a prominent lawyer stepping down months after his wife and son were shot to death. the shocking new admission

ainsley: new developments in the murder mystery of a prominent south carolina legal
5:32 am
family. alex murdouch revealing he's resigning from his law firm after being shot in the head and todd piro joins us with a new twist. todd: ainsley this shooting comes three months after his wife and son were gunned down at the family cabin. he was shot while changing a tire over weekend and rushed to the hospital where he was treated for a gun shot wound after dialing 911. he is expected to fully recover but now leaving his law firm and entering rehab. releasing a statement saying, " the murders of my wife and son have caused an incredibly difficult time in my life. i have made a lot of decisions that i truly regret. " the law firm confirming overnight that he had been accused of misusing funds. the firm hiring a forensic accounting firm to investigate the suspected miss appropriation and they also notified police and the south carolina bar association and the family of course has been in the spotlight over the last several months. alex was the one to discover his wife maggie and son paul murdered on their property three months ago.
5:33 am
those deaths ruled a double homicide but nobody has been charged with the killing. at the time of his death paul was facing trial on felony charges in connection to a boat crash that killed a 19-year-old woman back in 2019. unclear if alex was targeted in that shooting or if it was random. police, right now, have no suspects in custody. back to you. ainsley: thank you so much, todd steve? steve: thank ainsley. the accused mastermind behind the september 11 attacks will finally appear in a courtroom later today almost 20 years to the day since the attack. the hearings for four high profile suspects were delayed a year and a half due to covid. former guard and fox & friends weekend co-host pete hegseth joined us earlier to react to the plans to resume the trial. pete: fast forward to 2021 and we're having the pre-trial for ksm. the supreme court stepped in multiple times kong congress
5:34 am
rewrote the law, and ultimately international lawyers and others who wanted to gunk up the mix and created constitutional rights for terrorists created a process that was almost impossible to get past. steve: here with more is fox news sunday anchor, and author of "brand new book just coming out countdown bin laden" mr. chris wallace. chris, good morning to you. chris wallace. >> good morning to you, steve. steve: i think we have a little delay. chris there are a lot of people frustrated. its been 20 years since 9/11 and just now, we're trying to get to the pre-trial stuff? what's going on? >> it is insane. ksm, the architect of 9/11, was caught in 2003 in pakistan after going through considerable in
5:35 am
tar o equation including waterboarding and in 2006 was 15 years ago and still hasn't had his day in court, and it was supposed to happen in 2020, but then with covid it was delayed for a year and a half and they are just doing pre-trial. we're nowhere near a trial. these are pre-trial motions. he confessed after he got to git mo, but now they are saying that has to be thrown out , the lawyers do and yes, he's in a maximum security prison, but one wonders if he will ever actually have his day in court and have to answer for what he did to all those thousands of americans on 9/11. steve: absolutely. so this week, today i believe, your book "countdown to bin laden" comes out. the untold story of the 247-day hunt to bring the mastermind to justice, and i love the way you opened the book. you open the book where leon pan etta, the president's chief of staff
5:36 am
during the obama administration hears boss, we think this fortress, this street story house in pakistan is a place where that guy could be, and it took 247 days before they said okay, let's go do it. he said at the end of that meeting he said you new york try to get more information before we pull the trigger on this. >> well, this is what i'd call a history thriller and we take you inside the 247 days. it went on for a long time before that for nine years to try to get a lead on where bin laden even was, but as you say then the cia director leon panetta on august 27, 2,010 year and he said we praised a guy we think might be his career to that compound, what you're seeing there, everybody thought he was in a cave somer whether
5:37 am
in the tribal area. in fact he's in the quite affluent suburb where the pakistan west point was but it's a totally circumstantial case we take you inside the cia hunt and then the meetings and the white house to try to decide what to do and then they bring in the military and the head of joint special operations command , and they enlist seal team six, 24 fantastic and brave and capable navy seals, you're in the helicopter as it heads to the compound, and then in the house as rob o'neill climbs up the stairs to the third floor everybody knows how the story turns out but i promise you, the last 100 pages you'll be on the edge of your seat, flipping pages saying what happens next? steve: that's right. well you're great at these books you just mentioned rob o'neill, the guy who pulled the trigger here he is actually featured in chapter 2 of your book where he talks about how he learned about the mission to get bin laden and
5:38 am
his reaction. watch here is rob. >> we found a thing, and this thing is in the house, and this house is in a bowl in these mountains and this bowl is in a country and you guys are going to go and get this thing. >> okay cool what's the thing? well we can't tell you. okay, where is the bowl? can't tell you. what country is this? can't tell you. how are we getting there? can't tell you. how much air support? none. okay that's our only answer is no air support and that's how it started. steve: that's how it started and we know how it ended. chris the book is great and i was reading the thank yous and you do thank your wife lorraine for putting up with you when you were putting this altogether because at one point, lightning hit your house and blew up your computer, where you had all the work. >> [laughter] yeah, let me just quickly say, you know, i know a lot of people have very mixed or negative feelings about how we got out of afghanistan, and i think they are completely right. what i think this book reminds
5:39 am
you is that we did do a lot in these 20 years in afghanistan, and maybe the best thing we did is on may 1, 2011. we did what we originally came to do which is to take down osama bin laden to protect this country from a terror attack from afghanistan for 20 years and as badly-handled as the biden withdrawal has been this operation was flawless. the cia, the white house and the military community all worked together flawlessly to bring those off. steve: that's right. chris' new book "countdown to bin laden" is available now, and watch his special this sunday at 10 p.m. on the fox news channel you can also watch it on fox nation after it airs live. all right, chris, thank you very much for joining us from d.c. all right 20 minutes now before the top of the hour just a week from the recall election in california, vice president kamala harris is hitting the campaign trail for the embattled governor there , leo terrell is also from the golden state and weighs in

5:45 am
she did a disastrous job, if anything, at the southern border and basically she's been awol regarding afghanistan. kamala harris is unpopular. you look at some of her policies ainsley. remember last year, she funded a cash bail relief for criminals during the riot. i'm telling you, she's basically unlikeable, she suffers from the hillary clinton syndrome. people don't like her and she's under water in every poll in this country. ainsley: if you look at the public policy institute of california they say 58% don't want him removed, 39% do want to remove him. what is your prediction? >> my prediction is this. there's going to be a tremendous yes-on recall on the day of the election, ainsley, next tuesday. i think that the supporters of larry elder and anyone who wants gavin newsom out are going to come out in great numbers on the day of the election, and that's what i think is going to be very significant and i think
5:46 am
the republicans and the recall, they want kamala harris here, because she's a reminder of the disastrous program at the southern border and the horrific program that the biden administration has pushed in afghanistan. ainsley: they are really going after larry elder, he's a conservative talk show host and the front runner on the republican side saying he opposes minimum wage, downplays climate change, they talk about his issues with race and with women, and they say he's more extreme than president trump. how influential will those messages be? >> those messages are not starting because they have thrown everything at larry elder they accused him of being a racist, it's insulting. they have accused larry of everything, because they are afraid of larry elder. that's plain and simple. larry elder, ainsley, does not fit the democratic narrative that everyone whose a republican is a racist. that is very insulting to any person of color, especially insulting to larry elder.
5:47 am
ainsley: with gavin newsom being hypocritical about masks and so many people leaving california with the high taxes the way he's handled so many political issues , how does he even have a chance to win? >> i'll tell you why. because this state has been forfeited by the republicans. it is so blue in this state, ainsley, it is just a democratic blue state, and i hope that the republican party. i hope larry elder turns california around because this state is disastrous. last year was the first time in my life i wanted to leave california it's so bad in this state. i'm hoping for a turnaround. larry elder represents the first good step to turnaround california. ainsley: leo thank you for coming on with us. >> thank you, ainsley. ainsley: straight ahead we're honoring one of the heroic firefighters who lost his battle with cancer linked to his service on 9/11. janice dean is live with how ray pfiffer's friends and colleagues are paying tribute

at this stage in my life to be able to be here as a part of newday usa, everything that we do is centered around how can we help that veteran? how can we help that veteran family? we'll help anyone we possibly can. we'll get them in that home. we'll help them do a refi. we'll help them to get cash out of their home. whatever it is that's going to help that individual. and if it's not going to help them, we don't do it. pool floaties are like whooping cough. amusement parks are like whooping cough. even ice cream is like whooping cough, it's not just for kids.

whooping cough is highly contagious for people of any age. and it can cause violent uncontrollable coughing fits. sometimes followed by vomiting and exhaustion. ask your doctor or pharmacist about whooping cough vaccination because whooping cough isn't just for kids.
