[cheers and applause] >> i had one goal during my career and that was to win more than everyone else. we did. ainsley: that is so cool. derek jeter welcomed into the hall of fame. you will see later on in the show we interviewed a family that lost their dad on septembe. we are going to talk to his wife and the boys. their twins and their nickname growing up was -- were the twin towers because they sore tall like 65, 6'9". maybe taller than that their mom and dad were very tall. they stopped using that name
after the world trade center and lost their dad. they met derek jeter when they were little. they showed me a picture of them really short and derek jeter really tall. they met him later in life they took another one and they were towering over him. brian: that is so cool. twin towers usually elijah, 75 and 7-foot. other thing to bring up with derek jeter, what is major league baseball doing magical moment generational player and put it 1:00 in the afternoon on weapons. i'm sitting there trying to find it on mlb.com and i got it as usual he produced again in the clutch, a flawless speech. well done not over emotional, not under emotional. there is something about that guy that always hittings it out of the park. but i have never seen a revealing interview with him. you never get personal story. ainsley: he doesn't go deep. brian: he doesn't go deep. maybe he isn't. i doubt that he isn't. steve: just wanted to play baseball.
that's all we want. he is great at it and now in the hall of fame. he is the captain now. ainsley: what was his group called. watch derek jeter. brian: core 4. it wasn't a rod it it was jorge, rivera, andy pettitte and derek jeter. ainsley: that's right. steve: those were the days. brian: when the yankees won all the time unlike what they are doing now losing all the time. of the taliban were allowed 200 stranded americans, this is big, and other civilians to leave afghanistan on charter flight from the kabul airport. steve: right. because yesterday they said they couldn't lee this comes as the white house defended decision not to allow charter flights from afghanistan to land at u.s. military bases even though they would get stranded americans out of afghanistan. ainsley: griff jenkins joins us live from washington with the latest. griff? griff: good morning, steve, ainsley, brian. that's right rioters is reporting that taliban
authorities have agreed to let some 200 americans and afghan nationals depart kabul airport on chartered flights. unclear if these people are among those stranded in northern afghanistan and the administration is defending their handling of the crisis. watch. >> we don't have a role of flights taking off. we are not on the ground. a unof in these planes they may have a handful of american citizens are we going to allow a plane with hundreds of people where we don't know who they are to land on a u.s. military base? griff: now this as secretary of state blinken traveling in germany deflecting blame for the americans stuck on that tarmac in masri shareef. >> as of now, the tall ban are not permitting the charter flights to depart. we are working to do everything in our power to support those flights. we have made clear to the taliban that these charters need to be able to depart. griff: meanwhile tennessee congressman mark green sent a letter to secretary blinken demanding answers over concerns that evacuees being held at a
military base are being allowed to use ride sharing apps to travel freely unaccounted for. >> they're letting them leave. they can catch an uber and actually leave the base. they don't know exactly how many are even there. they can't account for someone if they don't return. griff: and in a bizarre development, nadal hasan the radical islamic terrorist who murdered 13 people at fort hood in 2009 wrote a letter from death row congratulating the taliban on their takeover. his attorney saying in a statement, quote: hasan is pleased to see that the biden administration is now seemingly willing to engage with the taliban as de facto government in afghanistan. now, the president is speaking this afternoon at the white house about covid-19. we will see if he takes any questions or has anything to say about the latest in afghanistan. brian, ainsley, steve? brian: griff, we know it's not going to be his decision. we will see what his people want him to do robotically.
real quick question. i don't know the answer to this or if you do. we note masri shareef planes are still ground and we know that americans are on board but the state department doesn't feel safe with a plane that they haven't walked through unlike the karzai airport evacuation where we saw hundreds of people sitting on a cargo jet, i'm sure, haven't even been patted down. having said that are any people who were supposed to be in the masri shareef private planes going to be on these flights to qatar? they say there is 200 there and everyone will have passports and have tickets to their destination and visas. do we know if any of these have been mixed in that? ainsley: i heard them say it's unclear. griff: it is unclear. the u.s. officials speakerring on the commission of anonymity to rioters recent sure about that. it really underscores the significant questions we have because we don't have a single
u.s. official on the ground who could give us. ainsley: exactly. that's the problem. steve: griff, thank you very much. so the 200, the taliban are going to allow to leave today are from the airport in kabul. they have got to leave the airport in kabul. that suggests what about those people on the six planes up in masri shareef as depicted right there by the satellite picture? we don't know what's going to happen to them. joe biden said yesterday the international community is going to put pressure on the taliban to allow the evacuation flights to resume. well, good luck with that but, yesterday the taliban says okay, before they change their mind, no more, absolutely no more they wrocket promise. that's what happens when you get in bed with terrorists they break their promise. ainsley: they botched their entire thing. we did not get our american citizens and allies out on time. we pulled the military. we don't have the airports there anymore. we don't have control of our weapons anymore. we can't vet the people getting on planes even going to the
other countries. southern border. saudi arabia take a flight down to mexico and walk over our border. also the people on our planes that have come we are getting mixed messages. you have mark milley who says they are vetted before they come to america. but then you have people like mark green, the congressman from tennessee, who is not sure about that. saying that they are able to leave. they have full control of the campus. they are able to leave in ubers and they can leave and not come back. brian: who got them an uber app. on the way over. there is at least 100 unaccompanied afghan minors now. maybe they can play with the unaccompanied minors from our southern border. they're all on the same place, our military bases where we usually keep our military. so keep in mind this, this administration and the state department wants us to digest this. that we are not sure even though these are retired military, some of the most successful and most official military experts we have that put together these private businesses and private companies immediately to start evacuating people because our
government wouldn't. they said we don't know who is on those planes. we don't know if those planes are weaponized or the cargo is going to blow up. excuse me we watched the karzai at the airport with the people surrounding it and watching crushed getting through haphazardly we know the people you put on the planes at the karzai airport endangered everybody and many of which we don't know who they are. now you are worried about 25 sivs and 19 measures on a jet that you are not sure about and instead of trying to solve the problem you say you're not landing on an american base. you are not landing. go find another country. what country says that about their own veterans and their own citizens in a terrorist country? why is that acceptable? steve: well, brian, you know we heard from joe biden two weeks ago. it's messy. and he wasn't kidding. it's really messy untangling ourselves from afghanistan. but as griff was talking a
moment ago, the president and the administration because their poll numbers are tanking they are trying to change the page. they are going to be all about covid. brian: don't let them. ainsley: they keep saying we are not on the ground. jen psaki said without it people on the ground we can't guarantee the map fest. we're not on the ground. brian: it's embarrassing. steve: we're not on the ground. we are trying to turn the page the administration is. there is a reason why the "new york times" no longer puts joe biden's approval rating on the front page or anywhere. they have not, according to the media research center, they have not updated joe biden's approval rating since may. ainsley: i'm sure. steve: because he has gone south. why is that? because so many people in this country feel like what is going on? we're heading down the wrong track. greg gutfeld sat down with the former president, drimplet was on his show last night and had this observation about the state of america today.
listen. >> greg: now we are at a time where okay there are no more mean tweets and we have a really nice president, and the country is in the crapper. so who would you rather have? >> well, i don't know that he's a nice president. [laughter] i'm not sure about that. i can tell you the country has never been more unsafe. we have people pouring in to our southern border, which, everyone is forgetting about right now because of the travesty of afghanistan. and if you look at the people coming in by the hundreds, by the thousands, and these are not the people necessarily that wanted the protection. >> greg: right. >> these are people. are they terrorists? how many terrorists are coming in and they were aggressive, very aggressive at the plane and pushed their way onto the plane. brian: i think it's worked to the president's advantage not to be on social media. if you look at the other channels they are dying for anything. they this mary trump on 8:00. nobody cares. major issues here. they want entrepreneurship in a tweet to be the focus. they want to get their eyes off this. boy the president not being on social media and he needs to be on if he is requesting to win
and clearly he is running, it seems. by him not being on it allows people to focus on this administration. the how horrified they're. independents 6% approval independents. you keep that number. you don't keep the senate. you don't keep the house. ainsley: you say they are trying to turn the page. i'm not sure this page is turned. >> the history book also be open on this very a very long time. steve: there are measures stranded there. we will never forget. this channel, you will hear the latest news, all the news as we have done for coming up on 25 years next month. ainsley: that's right. 6:12 here on the east coast. thank you for weighing up with us. coming up, an ohio town turning out to pay their respects. one of the service members that was killed in kabul. how that hero along with the 12 others are now being honored by the military brian brian the cdc swayed once dependence by the powerful teacher's union. the masking guidance announced

watching the fox news channel and the president will outline his 6 point plan to stop the delta variant. he is expected to put pressure on businesses and on federal agencies and schools to have more vaccination mandates. if you want to do things, you're going to have to get vaccinated. is he also going to call for a global summit, try rally the world to try to figure out how to get people in every corn are of the world the vaccination because some people have not had it. ainsley: now we are wondering who is making these decisions? is he listening to the doctors or is he listening to the teachers union? emails have been released through freedom of information act. thanks to america's for public trust. they obtained these emails. they show the exchange between the cdc and the white house and the teachers union after the cdc came out on may 13th and they said americans do not need to have masks indoors or outdoors. brian: if you are fully vaccinated. ainsley: that inirfuriated the
teachers unions and emails started going. steve: teachers unions wait a minute, you can't do that. does it apply to the schools? ainsley: they wanted clarification. steve: it was not clear. exactly ainsley. steve: these are details over two days show once against the unions were able to influence the cdc. erika daniels smith white house director of labor engagement emailed to the cdc hey, do you know when dr. walensky would be able to call the nea association president becky bring gel? they have gotten significant incoming and are getting targeted for a response from the media. i've gotten them to hold on their statement calling for clarification, so, please, get back to us quickly. and they did. ainsley: the nea, that big union said we need clarification. we're going to release a statement and it's probably going to cause a lot of confusion. this walls their original statement that they sent to acredinke.
>> l-smith. they said releasing guidance without accompanies school related update creates confusion and fuels the internal politicization of this issue. we need cdc clarification right away. brian: or do we want to change do make sure the restrictions stay in place because they want total control? may 15th the cdc updates, obviously under pressure, the cdc recommends schools continue to use the current covid-19 prevention strategies for 2020 and 2021, just like they want the teachers union. prevents a pathway in schools prevention strategies. they get social distancing and not do gym. masks and physical distancing. all schools should implement and layer prevention strategies and prioritize universal and correct use of masks and physical distancing. this is what drives people crazy. you want to believe these
government agencies out looking for us. then you see the political pressure that is shaping their policy makes you say i have had it i'm on my own here. schools is one example that keeps popping up. steve: because we told you a couple months ago how the schools were able to essentially they sent the administration exact language that wound up in the final guidance from the cdc regarding school openings. showed clear coordination between labor unions and american public policy. and this is another example of how the white house is going what did the union say? let's write that down. ainsley: cdc says tough wear mask in dispiewls are vaccinated. i'm not sure why the cdc needed clarification. it's been proven you tonight have to wear a mask if you are vaccinated indoors and outdoors. then the delta variant did start
spreading. brian: i don't want the teachers union making our policy. taking our policy and adjusting to it just because you vote democrat doesn't mean every democrat politician has to listen to you. it makes people have doubts. the answer is people don't doubt -- people doubt everything come out and before we move on, quick thing, this is the same thing with booster shots. the who urges a halt to booster shots. two fda officials leave after president biden announces i'm going to recommend booster shots. why? because they don't recommend booster shots. now, the world health organization says don't. the fda officials some down there who aren't political i can't go along with this. i quit. guess who is going to talk about booster shot today? joe biden. might it be he is trying to play his favorite tune he usually gets the highest ratings? covid-19? does it look like a guy in charge? let's get booster shots. let's send people back to get the jab. ainsley: your point, this is why there is confusion.
brian: no trust. ainsley: if the doctors just set here's what we know. steve: right. ainsley: this is what our recommendations are to the hospitals i mean to the white house, so that they can tell us what we need to do and what we don't need to do. just let the doctors talk. but when you read these emails that you see there is influence from the teachers unions because they give the biden administration so much money and the democrats so much money,. brian: it's our health. ainsley: people are not sure they want to take it the african-american community i read this morning they are around 40% have been vaccinated. the white community about 50%. maybe a little more than that like 65% of asians have been vaccinated. brian: guess who is not? those with ph.d.s and high school educations. those two ends of the bracket are the least vaccinated in our country. steve: well, joe biden is going to be talking to them a little later on today and say get the shot. meanwhile, you know, out in california, one of the reasons there is a recall is because people were so incensed with how
governor gavin newsom, you know, he locked down everything larry elder currently is the leading contender to take his job. the poll duties show if you believe the polls show newsom is slightly ahead. yesterday, larry elder took his so-called recall express to venice beach and what happened there was so astounding that we had to show you keep in mind there he is there. there is a woman in a gorilla mask throwing an egg at him. she punched a guy who told her to stop. she yelled take your hands off explicative. touch me again. touch me again. she then aimed a left hook at the man. security guard then another guy wearing all black before a second woman was slapped. by the way the woman right there. who slugs that guy with the left hook, she smart fight. while he was at homeless encampment, obviously she was not from the homeless encampment because she is on a smart bike
when she made a get away. brian: what's with the gorilla mask. ainsley: that's what candace owens was asking why is she wearing a black faced gorilla mask and throwing eggs at larry elder? this is what happened to larry elder whether he is out there trying to campaign at the homeless encampment. [shouting] >> getting egged from behind. [bleep] >> take your [bleep] hands off me ♪ touch me again. >> don't touch her. don't touch her. [bleep] [bleep] get that sorry [bleep] out of here.
brian: they want to preserve their homeless lifestyle. fantastic. you hear other people say get out of here, boy. i'm looking at the "l.a. times" story on this. larry elder cut short venice homeless encampment tour after hostile confrontation. you don't see the woman in the mask. you see the guy throwing a punch and i guess it's larry elder's fault he showed up because obviously the people of venice beach have been tortured by the rise of homelessness and the welcoming committee that gavin newsom has given homeless. ainsley: everyone homeless come to california. larry elder said today i got kicked off the recall. my security detail was physically assaulted, shot with a pellet gun and whit projectiles. the intolerant left will not stop us. we will recall gavin newsom, we will save california. and candace owens was interviewed about this. brian was on last night filling in for tucker. he talked to her and listen to what she said.
>> absolutely infuriating. i know larry elder. is he a friend and mentor. he on the board of the blexit foundation which is my foundation. this is on the other side of the white woman wearing a monkey mask threw an egg at a black democratic candidate this would be wall-to-wall coverage. actually this might actually constitute a hate crime in los angeles. we have to find out exactly who this woman is. she needs to be arrested and charges need to be brought. this is absolutely criminal and disgusting and it might be racist. i'm unsure why she was wearing the monkey mask. i have no idea why she was wearing it but i would like to see more information about that. steve: i think we would all like to know who that woman was. brian: except if you are the "l.a. times" writer. they are not curious. steve: they didn't mention her. ainsley: everyone needs cool it everyone is so angry. we can have different opinions. steve: recall is next week. stand by. coming up here in the east. trump appointees to military academies trying -- the administration is trying to fire them. but several aren't backing down without a fight. hear why one west point grad

shooting in minneapolis earlier this week allegedly involving george howard. minnesota freedom fund believes that every individual who has been arrested by law enforcement is innocent until proven guilty. i believe that tweet was taken down but we found it via the way back machine. lacy, you know, they are saying they are taking a look at it. but, ultimately, if it -- initially, with kamala harris, if they were trying to just to get people out of jail who had been arrested during the george floyd protests, that's one thing. but because they got so much money now, they are bailing out everybody. >> yes, you know, this is part of a plan or a process between the bailouts, refusing to prosecute and all the discussion about defund the police. they have taken minneapolis, a shiny city on the hill and turn it into a lawless wild, wild west territory. and i just had a candidate for
the minneapolis city council on my pod alexandria ocasio-cortez bright light, wednesday night at 7:00. i had him on last night. they did a study of 1500 people within the black community. and only 45 of them supported the actions, the bailouts, the none prosecution and the defunding police. and out of that 45, 40 of them, i'm being told and i'm quoting here, was young liberal whites. black people don't support this. steve: all right. well, we went to minneapolis to find out what's happening. lacy lee johnson, sir, thank you very much for joining us today. >> thank you very much. steve: all right. great. meanwhile, a quarter before the top of the hour. one cafe owner was so fed up with covid mandates, she shut down and reopened as a private club to get around the restrictions. but now the county is looking to shut her down. the battle to safe small business coming up. but, first, a patriotic moment caught on camera as two young boys stop to pay their respects to an american hero. those proud americans are going

yesterday you have got to resign today by close of business, 6:00 p.m., or we will fire you these are all appointees appointed by donald trump. there's a purge now. they include general jack keane got the letter. kellyanne conway, sean spires, neither of those two are going to quit. what's interesting though is and there is some of them right there. president trump kept all of president obama's appointees on you about you but then sudden a new administration time to have a purge. ainsley: appointees from different administrations they want the trump individuals to quit. jen psaki was asked about it and she didn't deny it they admit it listen. >> the president's objective is what any president wants objective is to ensure you have nominees and people serving on these boards who are qualified to serve on them and who are aligned with your values. and so, yes, that was an ask
that was made. >> a lot of these appointees do go across administrations that there is a risk of politicizing these nontraditionallist, noncontroversial positions. >> the president's qualification requirements are not your party registration. they are whether you are qualified to serve and whether you are aligned with the values of this administration. brian: went on to say that the move, she went on to say jen psaki i will let others evaluate whether kellyanne conway and sean spicer were qualified or not political to serve on this board. now, keep in mind, if you are actually serving on a board, it's great for the country. but if you look at his international track record the way he just dismounted from afghanistan, you would probably say thank you, i would love-to-the stain of this move removed from my personally. these people are patriots they want to serve the country because they think they have a skill set that work. they enjoy it. you don't do at to the fame. kellyanne conway heard about this and she had a retort. here it goes it certainly seems
petty and political if not personal, the result is that faithful and willing public servants will be discouraged or thwarted from service. understandable given the need to distract from a news cycle that has you mired in multiple self-inflicted crises and a plummeting poll numbers. i'm not resigning but you should. steve: oh, zing. clearly the biden administration wants people on these boards who think that what joe biden does is brilliant. ainsley: they are supposed to be nonpartisan. brian: going to need a microscope or hubble scope to find anybody. steve: one of the people who was asked to submit their resignation, we don't know whether or not the former president's national security adviser h.r. mcmaster did submit his letter, but he was asked to quit. it's that super embarrassing. because he was asked to quit from the west point advisory board. this weekend he is getting west point's distinguished graduate award. they are giving him the award
but at the same time the administration is trying to take away his job. brian: wrote the most comprehensive book on the challenges america faces. go ahead. ainsley: meaghan mobbs was appointed by the west point board by president trump. obviously a west point veteran. the military board she says should not be political. and she talked to brian. listen to this. >> i think it's imperative that we fight for this. one of the last places where we should be politicizing anything is our united states military academies, especially at a place like west point which has the oldest board. that board was formed by then secretary of war james monroe back in 1815. this has been a long tradition of being nonpartisan to ensure that we are offering the best possible advice and instruction to our west point cadets. steve: yep. so, anyway. we don't know how many of the people are fighting back saying they are not going to resign other than sean spicer and kellyanne conway. let's bring in lara trump, fox news contributor. what do you make of this?

can we keep it out of the military. can we keep it out of a space like this? sad to see, not surprising from the biden administration. brian: it is, remember, he was supposed to bring everybody together. not only is he not doing that by his actions and the reconciliation packages that he is about to jam down everyone's throats. but now he goes out of his way to allow this to be a story. why we go out of his way to go punch the other side? like what's going through his mind? >> well, i think what kellyanne conway said is spot on. this is a clear way to distract from the disasters that have ensued since joe biden took office. we still have an open southern border. we obviously had a horrific exit from afghanistan. 1 american service members. brian: not over yet. >> americans stuck over there still, i guess we are just moving on? joe biden was on vacation over the weekend. he doesn't need to be worried about that. so, clearly, they want to change the news cycle. maybe this is an easy way, guys, to do it. but it is a shame to see.
it shouldn't happen. >> this is the way the trump people are treated. we are used to this kind of treatment and not surprised to see it. ainsley: let's shift to afghanistan. mark green brought something to our attention. is he a republican in tennessee. he says his sources are telling him that refugees are leaving fort pickerington which is in blackstone, virginia, in ubers without permission from the authorities. and, look, we just are all are a little concerned about the vetting process because some are saying they are not being vetted. some say they are. but we don't want them to leave the base until we know that they are safe and they are not terrorists and they are not here to attack america. this is what congressman mark green said. >> dod getting how far to handle directions by the state department. the state department failing to give them adequate information. they're letting them leave. they can catch an uber and actually leave the base. they don't know exactly how many are even there.
so they can't account for someone if they don't return. and they are telling the people oh, if you go and you don't come back, well that will end your visa processing. buff, if they want free, they are gone. there is nobody keeping them from leaving. and then you get the shocking allegations of harassment and shower. sexual assault. many. ainsley: lara, what's your reaction? >> oh meyer my gosh, this is insane that this is now happening on american soil beings remember who the people we are vetting. all the folks getting into the kabul airport it was the taliban. do we not think that perhaps the taliban terrorist organization. slip through the crack 9. these people are not been vetted i remember where one of our own fox news asks do we know if there are any terrorists found among these of a dan refugees? and the answer is we don't know. they don't know who all of these
people are, and clearly we wanted to help the people that needed the help. we wanted to get our allies out of there, if we could. but at the expense of a possible terrorist now on american soil who could just walk off or, my gosh, uber off a military base in america? this is insane. it's not surprising given this is under the administration ha has a wide open southern border. we will can just walk over that border, too. i guess we shouldn't be surprised to see this happen. >> lara, the whole thing regarding the taliban who has been our partner in getting us out of there, yesterday they said okay, we're not going to let anybody else leave and now this morning, according to rioters, they are going to let 200 out of the kabul airport. but this is the problem. the taliban keeps breaking their promise. but that's what happens when you get in bed with terrorists. >> it should go without saying,
steve, it's insane that we have come to this point. and the fact that we have, yes,an unknown number of afghan refugees who have made it to america, and, yet, our own people are still there basically held hostage by the terrorists, the taliban. oh well we are so grateful you are letting some of our people go. it should have never gotten to this point. brian: so embarrassing. >> we should never have left before all of our people are out. now we are in that bad situation. i hope that everybody that wants to get out can. we still don't know. they still don't know how many americans are over there. ainsley: we don't have anyone on the ground. brian: the former president spoke yesterday to greg gutfeld. one of the things he wad asked obviously he wanted to get out of afghanistan and end the so-called endless war. would it have been different? here's what he said. >> when you think that they moved the military out first, think of this, because we had a great plan. >> backwards. >> even biden made a mistake they were all screaming at him. since president trump or he calls it the past
administration, signed a deal, not one soldier was shot at or killed. think of that. you know why? because they knew the consequences. >> yeah. >> and our conditions were tough. and then they came in and they just moved out. who would move out their military first? the military goes last and safely. and sadly, those 13 great soldiers and 200 people, you know, 200 people, more than 200 people were killed and a lot of people are badly injured. really badly injured. it wouldn't have happened. steve: lara? >> it would not have happened. if i recall, we would have never found ourselves in a debacle like this. we would have never been embarrassed on the world stage like we now have been thanks to joe biden and my father-in-law is right when president trump was in office, there was respect given to america because people knew if you messed with us, we would retaliate. think about even north korea with kim jong un. i mean, we saw such progress being made under a president
that exuded strength. now, under joe biden, we look so weak, people are -- obviously you could just mess with america now and there is no retaliation. we are kowtowing to a terrorist organization over in afghanistan. this is -- this is the problem when you have weak leadership. it was peace through strength with president trump. and i guess it's just whatever anybody wants to do to america under joe biden. brian: meanwhile "the washington post" has a story today that president trump is reaching out to some of the families who lost loved ones on -- in that attack on his own. when he saw about some of the events in dover. and how president biden chose to talk about his family instead of those families and how that was not received well. thanks, lara. ainsley: thank you. >> thanks, guys. steve: and happy birthday once again. ainsley: to her mom. steve: yep. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us. jillian: let's go ahead and begin with this. the biden administration is preparing to sue texas over its new abortion law. the "wall street journal"

spike protein genes and other viruses and getting them to infect humanized mice as it's called and sharing the new vices they created more than the viruses they came from. that's the standing definition of gain of function research. steve: right. so when fauci has been up on capitol hill, particularly sparring with rand paul, he said we never did that. but when you listen to to him, t sounds like the lawyers at the national institutes of health have said, okay. we're going to define it as something over here and you can -- you will be legitimate in saying this, dr. fauci. and it just sounds like he is hiding legal we sell words to get away with something it looks like we dnchts you are exactly right. gain of function research is a very hard thing to define there have been varying definitions of it over time. so i think dr. fauci has one in
mind he thinks is defensible. i wish he would explain what it was because it's not terribly clear. steve: a unof in republicans, nicholas, suggest because he lied to congress he should go. the joe biden has made it very clear under no circumstances would they ever fire dr. fauci. is he too big to fire apparently. >> what i'm astounded by this is probably above my pay grade i would regard him as a long time public servant. he has a very difficult job. he has served with integrity he does the best he can i am puzzled by his behavior on this particular instance of the wuhan grant. i wish he would be more forthcoming. i wish he would explain as we have discussed exactly why it was not gain of function research. i wish he would tell us why he rejected the initial report back in january of 2020 from a group
of expert virology justs that they thought this virus was man made. there are lots of things that he has yet to tell us but he has gone into stonewall mode on this instant and i wish he would just tell us more. steve: absolutely. 651,000 americans have died. i think we are owed an explanation by our government if the government actually knows what happened. >> i would say so. the government may not know exactly what happened but it certainly has lots of information. all the information in the documents released yesterday by the intercept, all of that would have been extremely useful if the government had released it in january 2020. the whole investigation into the virus origins might have taken a very different turn. steve: indeed. nicholas wade former "new york times" investigative science reporter. sir, thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: you bet. all right. 25 minutes before the the top of the next hour. and 20 years ago this week a

janice: good morning. we are with tracy cantey, thanks for being here. tell me about your dad and how much he loved this boat. >> well, my father was a lieutenant in the fire department for 37 years. and he spent his last five years on this fire boat. and he just loved it. loved bringing people on tours. loved welcoming dignitaries for boat rides. janice: tell me about what he was doing that day almost 20 years ago that. >> morning he was off, as soon as the planes crashed into the tower he voluntarily decided he needed to come down and he called me and each of my siblings and my mom and he said that he didn't know when he would see us again but that he would do his best to come home and we didn't see him for three days. janice: oh. tell me about this boat. how miraculous it was that basically brought the water in to lower manhattan? >> yeah, the boat went into action as soon as the first plane hit. and it first started with rescuing people from the sea wall and bringing them over to
new jersey. it went back to the sea wall and started to deliver water to the pile because all of the infrastructure under the trade center had collapsed. it was the only delivery of water that was available pumping it from the hudson river. janice: tell us about the boat now. it's retired but you are hoping to educate people. >> yes. it's retired. it's being restored. a lot of work has been done. we have amazing volunteers put a lot of hard work and heart. there is more to be done. we are opening as a museum this weekend so that people can visit. janice: your dad is no longer with us. he died from 9/11 related illness from being at the pile. what would he think about the boat today? >> he would be so happy and proud and it's not just about him. it's about his brothers, too. and just this important piece of new york. janice: tracy, thank you for coming today. next hour we will have some of the firefighters that are still with us that were on this boat, on that day. and i can't wait to bring you the story. what a beautiful way to remember
the 9/11 20 years ago. thank you for being with us, tracy. >> thank you. steve: what a piece of flooding floating history that is. that is just amazing. thank you, j.d. brian: thanks, janice. 18 minutes before the top of the hour. as we get closer to the 20 year milestone since the september 11th attacks. we are honoring all of those we lost and all those who lost loved ones. steve: that includes thousands of kids who lost their parents on that morning 20 years ago this saturday. ainsley: we had the opportunity to speak to two men who were just 11 years old, they're twins, on 9/11. mike and dan frieden lost their father andrew in those attacks. i also spoke to their mom lisa andy's widow. they are inspiring family. they have adopted the idea of triumph over tragedy. watch their story. >> go to daddy. say hi, everybody.
[cheers] >> just the most outgoing apropos always had a smile on his face. >> hi. >> he was an amazing person and more importantly an amazing father. >> hey, daddy. >> he was just the best dad. >> he was everything to us. our coach, our role model, our hero. >> your dad was a great man, a great coach, and a great father. he was always willing to help out. he was a big man with a big heart. >> my husband was kind of a larger than life person. >> i'm 6'1, he is 65. he made me laugh. had a really good sense of humor. >> round of applause randy and lisa. >> he was a really great guy. you know, they only say only the good die young. ainsley: on the morning of september 11th, 44-year-old andrew freidman went to work in the tower of the world trade center. he had just started a new job there only two weeks before.
ainsley: tell me about that morning, that day. >> typical day. he went to work. i went to work lisa, doesn't andy work in the world trade center? i said yeah. she said there has been a terrible accident. she called me. >> this is my phone bill. these were all the calls on 9/11 at 9:16 as i said there was incoming call. i pick up the phone. i'm in shock. and it's andy. and he sounded fine. as you would expect him to. he didn't want to alarm me. is he like lisa, we are all together, we are all in a room. we have plenty of air. i didn't say anything. i said i love you. >> this they returned to me about eight months after 9/11. this is my husband's credit card that they found in one piece. >> andrew keith freidman. >> one minute you're going to school, being a kid, having fun,
goofing off, whatever, and another minute later your dad is killed in one of the most horrific events in our history. ainsley: what has the last 20 years been like for you all? what's been the biggest challenge not having a dad? >> we always hear or see on social media that never forget, #never forget. that might be for some people 20 years they don't forget about it for us every single day. not a single day goes by we don't think about our dad. ainsley: right after 9/11 you met with a grief counselor. >> yes. ainsley: what was her advice. >> if you take whatever you are feeling and try to do something good for somebody else, it will make you feel much better. and on that friday focus on the 14th, i think. we went into the city and rented a van and filled the van with socks because the first responders, i don't know if you will remember they were asking for dry socks. ainsley: i have heard people say god is the only one that can see the future. you are handing out socks and it
ended up turning into a business. >> to us socks have always represented hope for your family. we didn't know at the time that it was going to be the foundation for the business that we were going to start 15 years later. ainsley: in 2017, the brothers founded tall order. a company that makes unique socks for tall men like themselves. their dad, and athletes like shaquille o'neal and john sally. >> we also do make small sizes. >> our motto is about fit to stand tall. so when people think of tall order, it's not just for tall. it's for all. ainsley: it's a company that gives back to organizations like tuesday's children and the feal good foundation, charities that have come to the aid of the families and victims of 9/11. >> we knew it was a, quote: tall order to pay back to those that helped us and then pay it forward. >> he could speak to the boys what do you think he would say. >> oh my gosh. ainsley: about where they have come over the last 20 years? >> i know he would be extraordinarily proud. i believe is he watching everything we are doing and very busy making sure that everything goes the right way.
>> i know our dad is watching down on us and looking on us and being our guiding light. >> dad, we love you, miss you. we always know you will be with us for the rest of ours lives. ainsley: i mean, what a remarkable family. the giants played the broncos the night before. the boys watched all the sports games with their dad. and dad would say all right, the game is running late. boys, you have got to go to bed. the they did. the next morning he left a note in their room telling them who won the game if their team had lost. the boys remember that they said he was a remarkable coach. he coached all these little kids on long island. you can relate to that. brian: yup ainsley: drive them to practice. always the kids' coach and playing the baseball with them. they were a remarkable family. they were such a tight unit. lisa said she was supposed to go out that night with her girlfriends and they canceled it and they did a family night together. she is so grateful for that memory. her name is lisa freidman clark.
when i walked in i said lisa, when i sought double name i'm hoping you found love again. she said i am one of the most fortunate women because i have found two loves of my life. they have a wonderful stepdad. and the boys just adore him as well. so, you know, and they are giving back with tall order. tall order.com. they have socks for every size. but they really started it because they are so tall. 6'9" and 611. they could never find socks that fit. you saw shaquille o'neal holding up the socks and a lot of athletes are buying them. if you have trouble finding socks, they have socks for you and named after people who died on 9/11. they said so many people helped them and that's why they want to give back so much of the money that they make they give back to charity. steve: that's great. ainsley: lisa and i are going to be friends for life. when we great time together. they have turned something that was so tragic into triumph. amazing family. steve: andrew freed map was just
44 years old when he died in the attacks. his legacy lives on through his family. may he and everybody else rest in peace. ♪ ... ♪ limu emu & doug ♪ oh! are you using liberty mutual's coverage customizer tool? sorry? well, since you asked. it finds discounts and policy recommendations, so you only pay for what you need. limu, you're an animal!

allowed to leave afghanistan. the numbers been shifting a little bit we're hearing between 100 to 150 there was 200 earlier this morning that was the report we're still waiting to get a better idea of whose leaving and how many americans are on the list and whether we see more flights going forward. a spokesperson in qatar this morning was saying they believe the people leaving all had valid documents and this was more of a free movement of foreign and local passengers, and that they believe more flights will be going out tomorrow. the white house is still facing a lot of pressure even from some democrats to ensure americans in afghanistan can still leave. my colleagues, peter doocy asked yesterday with terror suspects running the afghan government how the u.s. can ensure those same americans can get out >> what we are working to do is to engage with them, because they oversee and control afghanistan right now, to get american citizens, legal permanent residents, as sib applicants out of afghanistan. we have to engage with them. reporter: we know next week the secretary of state he's
going to be testifying before congress on all things afghanistan, but some lawmakers say they are worried right now about pressing national security matters when they have been getting reports so many afghan evacuees are leaving the holding facilities they have here in the united states. >> they're letting them leave. they can catch an uber and actually leave the base. they don't know exactly how many are even there, so they can't account for someone if they don't return. reporter: there's also a bizarre story coming out of fort levin worth kansas where the man behind bars for killing 14 people at fort hood in 2009 he is writing a letter in which he is congratulating the taliban for retaking control of afghanistan, so obviously, there's been a lot of concerns about what the taliban regaining control could mean for those that sympathize with their movement and obviously we have this story coming out of cans as with the sympathizer behind bars for killing so many people. ainsley: he asked his attorney to hand that letter to the top
taliban leadership and the attorney says while major ha san has not changed his opinions about the taliban it would appear president biden has done a complete about-face. steve: right, mark thank you very much. brian: 100% right. steve: apparently those people allowed to fly out they will be leaving on a qatar airways flight and apparently this is going to be the first flight out of kabul airport since afghanistan fell. brian: they have tickets and everything. steve: they have tickets and boarding passes it sounds like this was pre-destined although there was such a 180 yesterday because we had heard they are going to be allowing the taliban was going to be letting people out yesterday. then it's like okay, the taliban just announced, according to tony blinken, they aren't going to allow anybody out which should not surprise us, because our partners in this are terrorists, now, its been revealed that apparently, those people who had the tickets on the airline will leave. we have no idea what's going to happen to those people with those six charter jets up north
of kabul. we don't know when they are ever going to get to leave. we just know the white house said a couple weeks ago there's nobody stranded although it sure looks like they are stranded. ainsley: jen psaki said we don't have a role in preventing flight s from taking off. we aren't on the ground. anthony blinken, without personnel on the ground we can't verify the accuracy of the manifest of whose actually on these planes. here is another concern. those planes, where are they going and what if there are terrorists on the planes then they can go to mexico and come through our southern border if they aren't allowed to come to america. what about the people that are already here in america, some people are saying they are vet ted. state department is saying they are vetted but then you have others worried they aren't like mark green you heard they are taking ubers. president trump says our country has never been more unsafe. he sat down with greg, listen to this. >> now we're at a time where okay, there are no more mean tweets and we have a really nice president and the country is in the crapper. so who would you rather have? >> well i don't know that he's
a nice president. >> [laughter] >> not sure that but i can tell you the country has never been more unsafe. we have people pouring in through our southern border which everyone's forgetting about right now, because of the travesty of afghanistan, and if you look at the people coming in by the hundreds, by the thousands, and these are not the people necessarily that wanted the protection. >> right. >> these are people, so are they terrorists, how many terrorists are coming in and they were aggressive very aggressive at the plane and pushed their way under the plane brian: so the other big story, they pushed their way on to the plane and everyone says i don't want the private flights to go out because we're not sure whose on them. we told you, navy seals, you have elite marines, working out to get 25 americans, 19 sib's on there. i'm concerned about that, but now, it's just too much of a risk going to the state department but those 122000 that you got through kabul airport, because the taliban providing your security in your great plan , allowed them through. those people are secure, but the
ones our special operators are doing it on the side for free using private donations those are the ones you're worried about. keep in mind when it comes to the refugees too that everyone is concerned about with 30,000 in the u.s. already, right? you got 10,000 of those who want additional screening, 100 are under review, that maybe could be happening, maybe you could cooperate, and find a country that would allow them to maybe park the plane and you can go in and use your technology to find out exactly who they are but i think it's also important to know how much is this costing america. president biden came out and said time for us to stop writing checks use our resources other places. please tell me when we can stop writing checks because right now the president is asking for $6.4 million, 2.4 billion, for defense, to help reset element, 1.3 billion for individuals, 816 million as agencies for international development, 193 million for citizenship and immigration services. these are for the afghans, many of which aren't even sib's that
have landed on our military bases, who we don't know, $1.7 billion to hhs. they've done such a great job we're giving them additional money. on top of that there are at least 500 unaccompanied minors here, we are great at raising children. we've already raised so many thousands of unaccompanied minor s who have come through our southern border, maybe they will play with our new unaccompanied minors from afghanistan and they can be babysit by the illegals who are still waiting to be processed all at our military base. ainsley: after 9/11, we go to afghanistan, we try to get the taliban out, we're successful, we spend $1 billion, that is the smallest number i've heard. some people are saying two, $3 billion. so if we spent $1 billion for what? the taliban now has overrun the country again, and we're back to square one. brian: and they have our equipment. $85 billion worth of equipment. steve: well that's why it's a public relations disaster and that is why the administration
wants to put afghanistan in a rear view mirror as a country and focus on something that joe biden is good at, and according to the public relations polls, his highest number is on covid so later today he's going to unveil a 6-point covid plan. you'll see it live at 5:00 on the fox news channel. apparently he's going to put pressure on businesses and government entities to make sure you've got a vaccine mandate, just make sure everybody gets a shot where they can't come to work and also school. the 6-point plan it sounds like the plan is to get more people vaccinated, increase testing, require masks. there will be economic recovery and improving care for those with covid. the economic recovery is interesting. it sounds like the administration, if this report is true, wants more money and that is separate from the infrastructure that is not really infrastructure, so this afternoon, it sounds like joe's going to ask for more dough. ainsley: more money for refugee,
for the shot, more money for boosters, more money for reset element of afghans. spending spending spending. brian: he says i want to keep schools open, i want to tell everyone to wear a mask, ask for a booster shot the problem is the w. h. o. says don't do that. steve: they want other shots to go around the world. brian: studies have been done that we don't actually need them he had to bust into change the subject, last wednesday, at about 12:00, he made the announcement we're thinking about boosters. now, israel is up to four boost ers. others haven't gotten their first vaccine. others have ineffective vaccines but the president of the united states says get a vaccine, you have no problem now he's saying get a vaccine, you might have a problem, now he's saying we'll give you a booster you probably won't have a problem and then he's trying to tackle the delta vair variant. it came in june. thanks forgetting around to it. i guess you had a busy summer. next he will tell us about the mu variant on top of that? can someone get ahead of anything? ainsley: for all of this we want to look to our doctors and you
probably talked to your doctors about this but the president, it seems like or the administration it seems like, is getting a lot of information or getting forced to do certain things getting squeezed by these teacher's unions, and so are they listen ing to those teacher's unions to tell us what we need to do or listening to the doctors and experts? on may 13 the cdc comes out and says americans do not need masks inside or outside if they have been vaccinated. we were jumping for joy. well then the very next day, national educators association sent the cdc an e-mail. they said we need clarification from the cdc. they sent the e-mail to the white house. steve: because the teacher's unions wanted to make sure that everybody was wearing a mask. the teacher's unions it sounded like was iffy whether or not we'd even go back-to-school this fall, so anyway, we're going to show you some of the back and forth between the white house and the teacher 's unions where it sure looks, well it looks exactly like the nea is
influencing american public policy, just as the teacher's union did a couple months ago when it came to reopening. the white house director of labor engagement e-mail to the cdc, hey, this was on may 14. would you know when dr. wolensk i be able to call any nea association president becky sprinkle? they've gotten significant incoming and are getting target ed for a response from the media. i've gotten them to hold on to their statement calling for clarification so the white house is reaching out saying hey , you want to help us with this? what would you say? that's essentially what this is, a solicitation. what would the nea like us to say, to these press inquiries? ainsley: on that very same day the nea draft statement that was sent to erica smith it says releasing the guidance without accompanying school-related updates creates confusion and the politicization of this basic health and safety issue.
we need cdc clarification right away. brian: all right, so the cdc basically says what do you want me to say? the cdc recommends schools continue to use the current covid-19 prevention strategy for 2021 school year. cdc's k-12 operational strategy presents a pathway for schools to provide in-person instructions and consistent use of prevention strategies, including universal and correct use of mask and physical distancing, all schools should implement and layer prevention strategies and prioritize universal and correct use of masks and physical distancing. so what they are saying is, that good news we told you on may 13 to america, when you don't have to use a mask outside because it doesn't do any good and that the virus has got to a point where you can go back to life as it was? that wasn't good enough for our schools so they choreographed what exactly they want the scientists or the cdc to say to the teachers.
ainsley: which was wear a mask in school even if you are or are not vaccinated. brian: teacher's unions put schools second. steve: in other words the white house wanted to know what the nea wanted them to do and the white house said, you know, essentially, how high do you want us to jump and so they jumped because the nea wanted them to clarify. ainsley: this is why people are scared. this is why people, so many people don't want to take the vaccine, because they are wondering, is the administration giving us advice based on doctors or based on politics or based on money from the school unions? steve: it looks like everything. all of the above. meanwhile, we know that gavin newsom has had some of the most restrictive policies in the nation on california. that's one of the reasons there's a big recall coming up next week out in the golden state. larry elder, who is, according to the poll, is right behind him , he went out to venice beach , and he was only there for about 10-12 minutes something like that and then some of the local homeless people
brian: evidently he was well received at the gold's gym, had a few people show up and ask questions and then he walks down to venice beach which is just three blocks away to see the homeless encampment which gavin newsom is directly responsible for and he embraces these homeless cities that destroyed communities that's why he's so vulnerable in a very democratic state and then you hear things like get out of here , boy, and you see a woman in a gorilla mask, and then you look at the la times cover of the story and they don't bring up that and they show the picture of the guy screaming the story is, actually, over tones that were just witnessing right now of larry elder, who people have maybe effectively labeled the black face of white supremacy, which couldn't be more further from the truth. the south central born conservative republican. steve: larry himself tweeted out what happened. he said today, i kicked off the recall express bus tour, before we even left la, my
security detail was physically assaulted. we saw that guy get swung at, shot with a pellet gun and hit with projectiles, the egg. the left will not stop us, we will recall gavin newsom. we will save california. i think a lot of people would like to know who that person was with the pink wig and the gorilla face. apparently not part of the homeless community, because she was on a smart bike and just made a get away. ainsley: she might have gotten it from gavin newsom. we don't know if she's homeless, they say come to me i'll pay your way. it used to be the cancel culture if you were a republican or conservative and now it's violence. you shouldn't treat anyone that way just because of a political stance. he's a black man, a republican, a conservative radio talk show host and wants to help a lot of people in california. you might have political differences, but calm down. brian: it's their worst fear, successful republican.
ainsley: he can't go out and campaign without being worried about eggs beings pelted at him and punches. steve: this video reminded everybody the recall election is next week, although early voting has already started in the golden state. brian: 18 minutes now after the hour. jillian? jillian: good morning let's begin your headlines with this story radical los angeles county district attorney george gascon is hit with a deaf a nation lawsuit. la deputy district attorney alleges gascon called him derogatory names attacked his character and denied him promotions. the 15-year veteran prosecutor believes he's a target after being a vocal critic of gascon's soft on crime liberal policies. >> e-cigarettes could soon go up in smoke. today the fda will decide which can stay on the market and which ones get the axe. the agency is reviewing millions of applications from e-cigarette makers including juul to determine which products are appropriate for the protection of public health.

americans, but now, president biden under fire for firing essentially non-partisan military board members. commander-in-chief telling all 18 trump appointees on the board the military academies to either quit yesterday by 6:00 p.m. or get fired. fox & friends weekend co-host and army vet pete hegseth is here with reaction. pete, clearly -- pete: good morning. steve: good morning to you. clearly, joe biden wants people on these boards at the military academy who think that what he's doing in afghanistan is brilliant. pete: or what he's doing with the military is aligning with his values. the whole idea of unity, by the way, was always a campaign sham from joe biden. everything we've seen from him has not been about unity, but partisanship and his agenda and in this particular case, his agenda must mean that general jack keane isn't qualified he's
one that was told to resign. sean spicer, navy veteran, megan mobs, who was a west point graduate afghanistan veteran, h. r. mcmaster, these are not nobody's. these are people who have most of which have had distinguished military careers or distinguished careers in government. donald trump had every prerogative to appoint them to three-year terms which everyone previously had served out assad advisors and now because joe biden whether they are covering up for afghanistan you're right and having people tow the party line or want to advance social agendas in places like the air force academy and west point. what's general keane going to block or create that's bad at west point? nothing. he's just not going to bow to some new woke social justice agenda which we've seen evidence they are advancing rapidly a lot of these. steve: just like everything else trying to get rid of everything donald trump did including these people, and i'll tell you though
, it is questionable whether or not the president the way these are setup can actually do what they try to do. it sounds like kellyanne and some others are going to fight. meanwhile -- pete: and they should. steve: they should indeed just to see what goes, obviously. we were talking you and i the other day about how they have restarted the trials down at gitmo for those , you know, the people who have been there for coming up on decades now, including kalid mohammed and others and as we come up on saturday the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a lot of people are frustrated. what they don't realize is with these trial, the trials are complicated because so many of these people were held by the cia and black sites in europe, and anything they heard is inadmissible so they sent in the fbi and now, their defense attorneys are arguing well you know what? they were enhanced interrogation
techniques, waterboarding and torture, they say, were used on them, so you can't really hold anything against them, and that's where we are right now. pete: yeah, it's a mockery of our system. you take this along with the fact that the taliban will form their new government on september 11? it makes us look like we are in capable of waging and winning war. ksm was charged nine years ago. its been a year since he's even been in a courtroom. this is a pre-trial hearing. these are only pre-trial. there's no date set for the actual trial. there's some believe the trial may not actually happen because the system can be challenged by lawyers at every step because it is a new system and for all the reasons you laid out. it's almost as if it's setup to fail, and ksm wants to die a marter anyway. he should have died swiftly right away through a quick speedy trial instead we look fundamentally unserious being mocked by him, what he wears and mocked by the taliban as they setup a government on our 20
year anniversary. we look unserious and we are. steve: pete i think you're right i don't know they will ever be brought to justice. ultimately some of them will just die. pete: that's right, absolutely. it's a nursing home right now for terrorists. steve: pete hegseth who used to be a guard at gitmo, pete. pete: many many years ago, thank you, steve. steve: thank you, sir. all right coming up on 8:30 in the east former president bush sent a strong message across the world about where america stood after september 11. remember this? >> either you're with us or you are with the terrorists. steve: find out why the sister of a 9/11 victim says hearing those powerful words today fills her heart with rage towards our current president biden. bill hemmer joins us to discuss that. bill is coming up, next. as someone who resembles someone else... i appreciate that liberty mutual knows everyone's unique.

there's no calendar. we'll act on our time. steve: well that message 20 years ago made a strong point to the world about where the united states stood following the 9/11 attacks, but the sister of one pilot on american airlines flight 77 killed that day says it only makes her angry about where we are today. >> just listening to that fills me with rage because i can't imagine what the sound bites from 20 years from now will be with president biden. those speak to everything he's not doing and i believe we are in grave danger now because this administration is now embracing a terrorist regime. ainsley: america's newsroom co- anchor bill hemmer joins us. bill: guess, good morning. nice to be with you and on the couch too. the cushion is super soft. imagine that. good work. good morning, guys.
ainsley: good morning tell us about this. this is on fox nation called " the lost calls of 9/11". bill: yeah i saw that yesterday i thought about the sense of vulnerability so many millions of americans feel. if you go back to early june, there was a little talked about report from the u.n. the u.n. who said between eight and 10,000 fighters have gone back in afghanistan. i believe most came from pakistan and they move across the border but very few people paid attention to it, and the example that i've been talking about the most over the past two weeks is when isis or al qaeda is given free reign to develop whatever devious ideas they want, well, who knows what they can create, and in november of 2015, a russian airliner took off in egypt and we don't know how the plane blew up. everybody died. the debris was scattered over 2t the thinking is that at the last minute someone put a bomb in the
baggage compartment under the plane, or even worse, potentially they were able to craft a bomb, put it into the size of a soda can and attach it to the side of the plane so it went off near the engine once it reached 10,000-12,000 feet so if you give them the time to create this , who knows what they can come up with and that's what i think i hear in that sound bite you just played. steve: it's coming to these programs for the last 20 years. bill: it just represents the vulnerability that so many people feel over the past several or so. brian: and we find out in a phone call ghani was telling general milley, we have 10- 15,000 terrorists invading our country. we need air support and they are coming from pakistan, so it all is verified, but yet the president of the united states told us the al qaeda presence is gone, we can leave now. we've won. bill: al qaeda, isis, taliban, it's all there. i know the administration will say that they can be so crafty.
they can come out western africa , et cetera and that is true as well, but to give them, michael waltz yesterday said, this is the beginning of what could be a super event for terrorism. i'd call it a terror super spreader. that's the potential it holds. ainsley: to your point we're not on the ground. we're not on the ground watching what they are doing in afghanistan anymore. bill: well over the horizon we'll see what the capability is listen the show that aired last week and coming up again this week and streaming now on fox nation, it's called "the lost calls of 9/11" and now i just did the narration our team put it together and they did a terrific job. this is an amazing story because we will go over hundreds , if not thousands of stories over the next couple of days that we've all heard and we're very familiar with, but this is a story you've never heard before. here is the gist of it, okay? there is a trading center across the street from the world trade center on the morning of 9/11, and it is, its function is to
record all the calls from clients and advisors that doocy says buy me 100 shares of microsoft we want to make sure we didn't buy them 100,000 shares of microsoft but that morning, clients and advisors and friends and family members were all calling to make sure that these people were okay. steve: we've got a clip of that special on fox nation, where you talk to rick harold who found calls on the computer and judy o rgasky, a woman on the call. watch. >> not knowing exactly what he bought, rick took the machine home, plugged it in, and turned it on. >> we sat there and listened to it, and it was just shocking. >> i want you to come home. >> i know it's okay. i'm fine, all right? all right? >> [crying] >> it's hard to hear it. >> this brings me back to that morning. >> this is the first time we have heard these voices in 20 years.
steve: you know, and ainsley just talked to a widow in the last hour who showed her the phone bill where that's where my husband called at 9:16. bill: a few things here most of the people are still alive because they got out of there. they were across the street, remember? but at the end of the show, the things they heard and the things they saw, they can't get them out of their mind. ainsley: right. bill: so we're going to go over that again as we relay that one last point here. there is a shot in this piece of the front page of the new york times. it's dated september 16, 2001 and the headline is bush tells military to get ready. so we're going back into war here, right? that was 20 years ago and we're all going to think about the last 20 years over the coming days and we're also going to think about the last 20 days that we have gone through. steve: the taliban is back in. ainsley: did that man say that he bought the machine? bill: yes. great catch, ainsley.
the workers at the world financial center and i don't know if you know about this but that was where merril lynch and american express was headquartered across the street from the world trade center their office was destroyed. this recording device ended up in texas. this gentleman you just heard from is this collector of technology. he goes home and turns it on and he knew immediately what it was. steve: unbelievable. bill: so he searched the country to find somebody help him literally splice the audio together to string all of the conversations back and the stories about going out and finding the people who are still alive today and they hear their voices for the first time, 20 years later. steve: it's on fox nation coming up on the fox news channel in 18 minutes you've got who? bill: we'll talk to one of the pilots who flew some of the last planes out of kabul, so that's coming up we'll talk to him. mike gallagher wants fauci fired , karl rove did a great piece today in the wall street

double-digit line. it's going to be a lot of game action. brian: absolutely for the first time you have a three-week pre- season and longer regular season and you had labor day off i'm happy for you guys. let's talk about your game. vikings vs. cincinnati, you look at this is going to be an exciting game, and there's a lot of people talking about cousins and vaccinations. >> yeah, that certainly has been top of mind for a lot of folks. the vikings have worked this out and they have done a great job, working with the nfl to try to accommodate everybody's feelings , because obviously, it's a tough political issue. it's a tough decision for everybody but cousins is going to be ready to roll, the vikings roster is traveling up to cincinnati, no expected issues, and this is going to be a great game, brian because these are two teams that under achieved last year, and they are coming back trying to prove something that will be much better, fantasy football, you can expect them to be running
all over the place on sunday but i've got to go with the bengals on this one, brian because they are getting their franchise quarterback back so we'll remember him from his championship season with lsu, horrible knee injury last year, never really got to play in front of fans i think there's going to be so much emotion in that stadium, to see him back in action the future of this franchise i have to go with the bengals. brian: he's healthy enough, jen >> indeed, yes, we're going to have some very special behind the scenes content coming up, be sure to watch the nfl on fox social accounts and of course the game documenting that behind the scenes process. he's been working not only with the bengals training staff but employed a lot of his own folks as well he's 100% better than ever. brian: so the packers got an interesting story they might be saying goodbye to their quarterback after this year even though he's not going to retire and the saints can't play at home even though it's technically their home game they are playing in jacksonville? >> believe you me, i know. i'm from new orleans i live in new orleans i'm visiting with
you now from north carolina because i had to evacuate too. you're 100% right. this was supposed to be this huge quarterback story line after the story line for aaron rogers, winston 2.0, can he re surge and revive his career? instead, hurricane ida has come along and swept all that away. the saints have had to relocate to dallas, and this game will actually be played down in jacksonville. you know, brian, this is one of the worst case scenarios for winston and his starting debut for the saints, as the franchise quarterback now , of course he was a backup there last year. the saints wanted him to have no pressure not to have to play hero, just to do his job, concentrate. he came out in his press conference yesterday talking about the emotion of hurricane ida, new orleans we've got this for you. we're doing this for you, so we'll have to see how that emotion plays in. i hope it doesn't work against the saints. i could see it working in the packers favor. brian: absolutely and winston was the franchise quarterback
and he had to move for this guy tom brady too many interceptions for the coach and we'll see if he used that down year watching drew brees to be the quarterback he could potentially be. watch all the games airing sunday on fox and then fox bet, you enter for a chance to win, $1 million of terry bradshaw's money. he's down to his last million so it matters a lot. so fox bet super 6, right? >> yes, indeed. free to play all you have to do is download the app everybody i meet thinks they are a football expert, okay america let's see how good you are all you have to do is answer six questions again free to play. we gave away $5 million last year, so it's a really fun way to stay involved with all the game action starting of course tonight, and rolling right through the weekend. check it out, and who doesn't need a little extra cash right now. brian: right jen hale will be on the sidelines but now she's on her porch for us. we appreciate it thank you very much. meanwhile it's going to be fun 20 years ago a group of firefighters buried hundreds of people fleeing lower manhattan

attack, and for more on this tribute let's check back in with janice dean she joins us live from that retired fire boat good morning to you, janice. >> janice: good morning, ainsley. thank you for being here. lt. tom sullivan, lt. bill ryan, and marine engineer jim briety, i thank you for coming today. tom i'll start with you tell me about this amazing boat. >> good morning janice i worked on the boat for 10 years, it was located at the marine company on 14th street in the hudson river and we covered the hudson river from the battery up tongers was our initial response area. >> what happened that day? >> it starts like any other new york story it was a beautiful clear tuesday morning. our shift changes around 9:00 so there was still some guys around the fire house and about 20 minutes in we heard an explosion and then a minute or two later second alarm, world trade center and stepped outside the fire house and looked down at the trade center as you can see the big hole in the north tower, and within minutes we said let's get down there. we had a couple extra firemen,
and because it was a shift change it was guys hanging around, jumped on the boat so we had our normal crew was seven, we had nine crew members that day. responded down to the north cove marina area and tied up. >> janice: bill you were with rescue three. how did you know they were saving you? >> kind of didn't. we were conducting searches during the later in the afternoon that day, and we headed towards west street where we came from and that was fire and the beams were hot and we could see 21 to the east of us a little bit and it was fire and smoke and just really no options on the way out. we got radio contact with my captain at the time, and we basically said looking at the building where we basically were and we said we're kind of out of options, and he said okay, we got these guys, jim and tom and the whole crew stretched a line off the boat across to west street however long that is, that's like super human effort and then the guys were putting
fire out to get to us and i'm like all right, this is where we are, if we don't make it, this is our best location, and we could kind of hear the hose after a little while and pretty much, we couldn't really call out anymore, just because of everything in our face and i remember coming to the hose and it's saltwater or whatever but you just put it in your face just to clear your face, but i was the benefactor of their efforts, the boat and jim jordan and tom particularly and all six of us in that group would not have done well that day if we didn't hook up with the boat. >> janice: jim, what do you remember on that day? >> the most thing that comes to my mind was when i actually walked up and actually seen the towers down, it was an unbelievable sight. it was something that there were fires everywhere and it was very shocking to see something that you would never believe that would happen ever here in the city or any place else and
it was something that you think about all the time. you think about like wow can't believe that happened. >> janice: 20 years, you know, and i thank you for being here and thank you for your service. there was something special about that day because it was terrible, but people came together to help one another and i hope everyone remembers that on this 20 year anniversary. thank you all. i love your service. thank you. steve, ainsley, brian back to you. ainsley: janice we love your husband, a firefighter too, and he knows a lot of these individuals. god bless you all you all are doing good work. steve: absolutely. a floating bit of american history, that that particular fire boat pumped all the water on to the site and there it is right there, because there's no water pressure in lower manhattan. brian: meanwhile, having scenes like that all week janice has been kind enough to go to important places in the area that happened and it mattered so much 20 years ago steve you had a great feature, you've had a great feature tomorrow flight 93
