we are following a lot of stories for you . what you were talking about off of the show. the second suspect on the chris day day attempted bombing on the northwest flight. we didn't hear about this. we spoke to curt and laurie haskle who were two members of the flight and on the flight at the time. they told erch who would listen. there was someone else handcuff led away by security and we spoke to them on the network. >> we sure did . we had them on tuesday . that's the first time that any of us heard there was another suspect. some wondered if this guy acted alone. we heard another person's bags were searched he was led away in handcuffs. lin to what the passengers had to say. >> it looked like a poor black teenager and a wealthy older
indian man. i thought it was strange they were together and they approached the ticket agent together. only the indian spoke and what he said. this man, referring to the black man needs to get on the plan and doesn't have a passport. the ticket agent responded no passport, no plan. >> he is from sudan and we do this all of the time . >> that's not the incident that we are referring to at the moment. we are talking when the plane arrived, there was another man in his 30s of indian decent who was cuffed off of the plane and taken and interrogated and the dogs, bomb-sniffing dogs smelled something in his carry on luggage. he was detained and released and not a suspect. that was boarding the plane. >> right in amsterdam they are referring to what they saw at
the ticket counter. they saw abdullmuttallab there with an indian guy and appeared to tell the ticket counter look, because he is a rudge rudge we should allow him to board the flight anyway. where is this goy this morning and why was he released so quickly? and why is the haskell corrob brated on thursday. we heard it on tuesday. no one said another person was arrested. the real story about the well dress would indian man was credible and accurate though no one mentioned who it might be. we did and them on "fox and friends", did anybody actually capture that man, no. >> and a custom's agent said no, no one else detained or
cuffed and denied it and said okay, we do acknowledge what you are talking about and someone else was cuffed. the story changed and it is very disturbing to find out this man was released so quickly. >> maybe there was nothing - on felt like something was in the bag and searched him and maybe there was something or maybe they know where to find this guy. >> we'll follow this and we'll bring you up to date. >> president obama and the youtube address, making clear that there is a link from the underwear bombing on christmas day to al qaeda. that is al qaeda in yemen which they call a-cap, al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. this is what the president had to say on his weekly address. >> this is not the first time the group targeted us. they have targeted the yemeni restaurants and hotels and including our embassy in 2008,
killing one american. i have made a decision to strengthen the yemen i government and sharing and work them to strike al qaeda terrorist. >> in fact, on christmas eve, they did a big counter terrorism trike in which dozens were killed. but the yemeni government not like pakistan where they were intentionally harbor be terrorist like pakistan was in 2001. yemen doesn't have the resources. >> they are weak. but there is suggestions that their government has corruption that is ram pant. look at afghanistan with karzai, sure we support the united states, you are not going against supporting the united states. but back room deal. >> yemen is trying to get rid . >> president obama sanctioned
the air strike specifically against alaki who is the iman who is tied to the fort hood shooter and abdullmuttallab . he managed to survive the air strike before christmas. >> and the president wrapped up counter terrorism against yemen and spent 67 million last year alone. five million in 2006 . it is ramped up the president is serious about that and airport security. we are finding out that the pat downs, one of the second screening efforts are effectism. you have an underwear bomber, how in the world is a pat down going to catch something. >> how is it that they are doing it? >> it wouldn't matter in i demonstrate you. >> do i have to do this?
>> you cannot board the plane. >> this is all they do. they do the side touching and quick side touch that's it. >> that's it. >> and if the underwear bomber had stuff hidden where -- >> you're dangerous. the point is they are so politically correct, the pat downs, they are useless. women have complained that the pat downs were too intrusive. they are only allowed to touch the chestal region around here. >> you get get in between and they would not been able to detect the underwear bomber. and they are only allowed to use the back of their hand to check certain thingings. once again, using the back of your hand and that is the least sensitive part seems like a band aid solution to the problem and they need
better screening mechanism in place and do what israel does to screen passengers. >> many debates about that. >> 150, of those body scan to the u.s. airports. next year they will increase and privacy advocates complain what should the tsa do? e-mail us at "fox and friends".com. >> funerals in northwest africa from the bombing at a volleyball game was rising. >> it is a warning for the pakistan residents not join against the taliban . pakistan leaders say the bombing will not deter them in the fight against the taliban. >> somali man accused of trying to kill a cartoonist will be charged with attempted

>> well after the attempted christmas day terror attack is it time for airlines to start profiling passengers to keep radigal muslims off of the plane. this is what newt gingrich had to say. >> someone is going to a training camp, they shouldn't be allowed to get a visa to the united states and get on an airplane . they shouldn't be allowed to work for a federal government and serve in the military. we need to have much tougher and more directive of what we are going after. >> we'll bring in lieutenant colonel ralph peters. >> happy new year. you look like you are dressed on the tech no prisoner.
>>im feeling festive since new year's eve . ralph, are you one of those people who think it is time to start profiling muslim passengers? >> no. the term we have with this, alisyn extremist destroy legitimate debate. the average muslim wants to get through the day and pay the bills and get home et cetera. it does make sense young developing world males who by one way tickets and have recent yemeni stamp in their passports and in profiling critics say it will not catch everyone. but if you are able to catch five out of the tep that helps. intelligent profile suggest one sensible tool in our arsenil. >> ralph, who could you protest that?
a behaviorial profiling. someone recently visited yemen pull them aside and and them questions. that stand toz reason. why aren't we doing that? >> i think individual tsa members are trying to do it. but they have to be careful because of the politically correct crowd. who is objecting is extremist muslims that are objecting. in the name much religious freedom we allow the saudies to full the american mosque where they preach extremist hate speech. people like those in the obama think they are doing miss lims a favor by tolerating everything. we are empowering the extremist and making it tougher for the average muslim-american citizen to do
the right thing and worship as they choose. the answer is in the middle. profile intelligently and stop making apologies for terrorist. suddenly this guy has ties to al qaeda and still won't use the phrase islamic terrorist. last week we talked about an isolated extremist. we all need to be honest. >> talk about president obama and the obama administration . no president wants a terrorist attack or homeland security wants a terrorist attack on her watch. why aren't they going further? >> i think there are two reasons. the first one and primary one, is simply that these people have a different world view than the average american citizen. i don't think that president obama has a crazy plot to it tear down america. he comes from a very left wing environment, all his life that
slants his view. janet napolitano has a left wing view. i think you are seeing a philosophical . also there is a misplaced fear of doing themselves political damage with american muslims or left wing groups. look, we need to be on the same team on and the problem is not 1.3 mus. there is a couple of million muslims that mean us harm and some are trying to actively trying to hurt us and profiling those characters is not bad. >> happy new year. >> always. happy new year. >> what rush limbaugh has to say about the recent health care scare and chest pains. imagine going to the funeral of a beloved family member and only to find the wrong body in the casket. more on that story straight ahead.
>> we are treating dave's medical condition. >> we hope so. >> medical rewind of 2010 . rush limbaugh spent several days in a honoluluhospital. limbaugh was released and spoke out about what he experienced. take a listen. >> i wondered what a heart attack would be like. i never had heart disease or problem with it. at 2:30 i experienced pain in my upper left chest like i never experienced before. >> we are joined by the clinical instructor of the medical center. happy new year. >> good to hear that rush is doing fine. it makes a lot of us wonder. are these common to have these
types was chest pain that feels like a heart attack and he has no heart disease whatsoever. >> rush was ruled out for a heart attack. the coronary angio gram that was negative. he had a typical chest pain due to overexertion or muscle pain and anxiety and acid indegestion can chest pain. he did the right thing for calling for professional help. >> the doctors told him it was the golden thing to get because they can see everything. >> road map of the arteris and supply blood to the heart much and narrow or blockage someone has heart disease. he ruled out for that. >> more on what rush had to say coming up. >> another story.

thoroughly and sign off to enlighten there are terrorist out there and they are testing our airports looking for a weak link. this particular incident involved as you said involved a laptop. let me go further. before it went through the x-ray. shoes went through the x-ray. the x-ray operator saw something unusual about the shoes and called for a search on the shoes and in that search, they found they had hollowed out soils. the name richard reed mean anything to those who don't want to take off shoes? >> the laptop went in the x-ray tunnel. i can't imagine the expression on the operator's face when he saw wires attached to an alarm clock. they went and test today for explosives and i believe they retested it again for explosives, nothing was found.
airport security came and took the gentleman and the laptop and shoes away. that evening i believe it was they told tsa that nothing was found. the man was not on the no fly list and checked on the exuters. tsa furthered their own search and next day found out that the airport could not have realized the man was not on a no fly list because the computers were down that afternoon. they let this gentleman go. >> incredible. >> this confirms what we are saying, they have been here for a very long time. they have been researching throughout the country what airports and what they can get what through. >> that is just one story in the book called screener and you also talk about how you were told and if you keep your

aren't they important? that is why it is so important that sop must be adhered to. >> not just the scanners in the airports it is about negligence and human error and even if you have a body scanner and see something suspicious. it comes down to human error and culture in the tsa. >> human area, yes. there is a dangerous culture in the tsa ranging from the top on down. i know of an incident involving a supervisor who was filling in on line and he took this bag like a brief case and x-ray operator called for a bag check and he took the bag. this is a supervisor and he did his own interpretation of the sop which was no more than just rifling the bag and cleared it to go into the airport and secure area only
to find out that that bag was part of the red team. it is part of a group of individuals that travel in the united states celebritily trying to get prohibited items . in this incident, it wasn't a gun or knife or box cutter, it was a fake ied that was located in a book. >> we are out of time and have to leave it there. you have given enough food of thought for traveling it is called screener. >> let me, okay. >> we are out of time. we'll have you back. we need to hear more about this. thanks so much for coming on. >> and look at the man that is called the next bin laden. why he may be more dangerous than osama. >> and the guy who prodicted the stock market crash in 1987 and so much more.

arrest all of the blood flow to the uturous stops. it preserves the mom's vital organs and brain and heart and the uterous is low on the list of priorities so it is not unusual for the baby to be suffering distress or stop breathing or have their heart beat stopped. but the treatment is delivery and paying attention to the baby. unfortunately his response doesn't give us clues as to why it happened. is just confirmed what we recognized clinical that tracey was sick and heart not beat not giving blood. ree r thevla

what happened, it appears another man, not abdul mutallab was handcuffed, someone suspicious, we have two guests on earlier in the week, two toerattorneys aboard e flight who saw something and denied by government officials, here is what they saw. >> the dog found something in one individual's bag and they took this individual away into a room and then about 45 minutes or an hour later they brought him back out, put him in handcuffs and took him away, so, we don't know if it was just to take him to another area to question him further, if he was arrested, we're not really sure. >> not arrested. he was not arrested he was released. >> that's what they're federal agents are saying. >> shortly there of. >> anything they're saying is slightly suspect, it took this many days, that was a week ago this happened and took them this many days to come out and confirm lori haskell's story she told on tuesday they had seen the other man taken away
in handcuffs. interestingly, they told us another part of the story, back at check-in in abbimsterda, they saw mutallab accompanied by a well-dressed man, they thought of indian address, arguing whether they had the proper passport. >> and arguing and he was a sudanese refugee and would not have a passport and you should put him on this plane, and a lot of questions where this guy went, he's been released and federal officials were quiet about it so long and i found it interesting it wasn't the tsa that came forward or anybody else or the fbi admitting to this, what they did with mutallab, it was the u.s. customs and border protection agency that came forward and finally admitted to this detention of this man of indian decent. >> maybe because their sniffer
dogs detected it. >> perhaps. so many other questions about security and how these guys were able to get on a flight in the first place and a lot of people scrambling to figure out ways to make our airports safer. a lot of the people throwing out different ideas, in fact, patdowns, you know the patdowns that people go up and occasionally they'll get them. very rarely do people get them in the first place, now, we know that they don't work at all. they're deemed ineffective by those doing it in the first place. those side patdowns. as you would imagine there are rules, privacy rules that suggest you cannot go close in certain areas and needless to say this was an underwear bomber. even if abdul mutallab would have had a patdown they would not have found the petn stitched in the underwear. what is the point of giving it. there is none. the body scalpers, 119 airports. if you decline the body scanner. the method of screening is a
patdown. >> would you. >> you turn one down, a body patdown. >> and as you say, the tsa says they can take it a step further if they need to and they will go and check certain private parts of your body if they need to. >> male and female. >> they'll take to you a private room. >> that's secondary screening and hopefully they'll see it as necessary rather than hoisting grandmas out of their wheelchairs. i'm been at the airport when i've seen grandmothers or infirm people asked to stand up out of the wheelchairs, as well as babies out of strollers, when, come on, this is why people want profiling, you don't need a baby who's being lugged by both of his parents with toddlers in tow to get out of their stroller. you need somebody who has a strange stamp on the passport or acting strangely to go in and have the thorough secondary screening and also following the days on the 253
fleet we found that one of the master minds of the plot was a guantanamo bay detainee released in 2007 and sent to what you might call jihad or terrorist therapy in saudi arabia. we're finding out this morning exactly the cushy conditions that expect. apparently go from water boarding one day to watercolors the next? >> all in an effort they say at this terrorist reconditioning center to get in touch with your feelings, to get rid of the jihady feelings in your body, watercolor, painting, playing video games, perhaps racquetfall with your fellow friend, this is no joke. this is happening in saudi arabia. >> he think all of this-- i know you're going to jump on me for this, there's no problem as long as it's in prison. on your way out it to be released, nobody is watching them, they're just coloring and drawing and then we know that at least one of the guys, possibly two, did go on back
to yemen and become a leader in al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, there's no follow-up, when you're in prison at least they follow you. >> how does that deradicalize you. and on your anti-americanism. >> it's supposed to allow you, if you draw, this is what they have them do. draw a picture of the aftermath of a car bomb. >> i'm sorry, what world are you living in if you think that works? >> you will supposedly get in touch with the consequences of your actions and how it feels to have people-- >> some people have to get in touch. >> this is an awful methodology. >> they can do whatever they want in prison, this is the point, but don't then release them claiming they're cured which is what happened if i return to the battlefield as a leader. >> and putting them together in one school where they can commiserate with one another doesn't seem like a smart move. they have to receive secretive stealthy ways to communicate. get them together where they can draw and chore together.
>> 108 of them guantanamo bay detainees and graduated. >> our department of homeland security went to look at it and concluded it was no help whatsoever in fighting terrorism. in the meantime, your headlines. what's happening at this hour, we have a fox news alert. the death toll from the bombing at a volleyball game in northwest pakistan keeps going up. police say now that 96 people have been killed. they believe the bombing was in retaliation for village errs joining the fight against the taliban. they say it will not help to deter or defeat militants in their countries. a flagship is hijacked off somalia. there are no british nationals on board the ship called "the asian glory", forbes say 25 people on board including eight bulgarians and romanians and indians and ukraineups and reports show there have been repeated acts of piracy against shipping vessels in
that area in recent years. the white house granted a waiver to allow a top terrorism official for the attempted bombing of flight 253 on christmas day. jn brenen, the deputy advisor for homeland security and counterterrorism used to be the ceo of an intel against firm that helped create the terror watch list. the white house says that br brennan has no financial ties and in the review of his former firm. >> the miracle on the hudson instead of a disaster, because of this hero, you know him well. this year, captain sully sullenberger was honored at the roses parade in pasadena, the theme was everyday heroes, who more perfect to headline it. the parade was before the rose bowl and something happened yesterday that hadn't happened in ten years and we keep teasing that, dave, are we ever going to air that. >> we'll talk more about the big ten coming up, but can you
believe that was almost a year ago, january 15th. >> oh. >> sully sullenberger, unbelievable how time flies. >> here is another unbelievable story for you. officials in connecticut are trying to figure out how in the world did this happen. how did they accidentally cremate at a funeral home the wrong body. >> oh, goodness. >> this is unbelievable. a family goes into the funeral, going into the wake there to see their-- the funeral of their loved one, they look over the casket, turns out that's not grandma in the casket, that's somebody else and then oh, by the way, we accidentally cremated your grandmother. >> cremated her thinking it was someone else. here is what the funeral home is saying now. quote, the funeral home is working closely with the family to resolve the physical situation and extend our most sincere condolences to them te challenging time from the buck brothers funeral home in connecticut. what's also disturbing is frank, who is 95-year-old mother passed away he says that appeared that they tried
to make this other woman, who is named shirley hollis, look like his mom. so appeared they were trying to cover up the fact that they cremated the wrong person. maybe they realized their mistake before the funeral and maybe they did try to make it seem for the family as though it was still their 95-year-old beloved mother and grandmother. who wouldn't know that it was their relative? i mean, that part is ludicrous, but it's hardly tragic because as you point out there's no fixing it. this one is for good. yeah, police say they don't expect any critical charges to be filed, but the department of public health there in connecticut is still looking into it, seeing and deciding what the next step will be for that funeral home. >> the lawsuit and the lawsuit is a slam-dunk. let's get to rick reichmuth with more upbeat news we hope, rick or-- >> just a little bit negative. minus 40, that helps. >> such a beautiful morning, have you ever been in temps that cold? >> no. >> yes. >> i lived in montana and in montana we got the temperatures.
didn't you when you lived in rapid city. >> not minus 40 my friend. >> this is wind chills, what it feels like, still, that's extreme. actual air temperatures around minus 10, minus 15 around the areas so brutally cold air here and it's going to stay that way for a lot of this coming week and we've got temperatures that are going to be moderate ago little bit and then the cold air comes back, but the front has moved down across the south and cold air even florida, you see 40's, if you've got minus 14 you think it's not that bad, but if you're in florida it doesn't feel that good. not a whole lot in the way of snow in the country except for across areas of new england where it's been a pretty dry time for much of this winter so far, but this is a big storm that's going to get blocked and not be able to move off towards the east and in fact, migrate towards the west and new england today and tomorrow and start on monday and the wind is really going to pick up across the great lakes and we'll see the lake effect snow and some cases up to about two feet of snow by the time this is done into the
day tuesday and cold air really comes in for a lot of the country this week. >> see you, rick. >> skiing. >> i'm ready. >> and polar plunging. a war of words between the white house and former vice-president dick cheney, he says the president is just pretending we are at war. we're going to ask cheney's former colleague karl rove about that ahead. >> apartment lit best of "fox & friends." i don't remember approving this. >> bacon suit approved. >> i would have liked to zoo some of these clips before we air them, but i won't get that option. >> and dave in a hamster ball. >> the clippers. >> oh, yeah, the clippers. >> and a lot of embarrassing stuff all morning. >> oh, good, it's coming up. try scrubbing bubbles toilet cleaning gel.
former vice-president dick cheney is questioning president obama my suggestion-- suggesting, excuse me, that he's too soft on terror. we're joined this morning by former senior advisor to president george w. bush and fox news contributor charles rove, nice to see you. same to you, happy new year. >> now what vice-president cheney said this week, he said that president obama is quote, trying to pretend we are not at war and is making america less safe. he says, he seems to think that it's better to lawyer up and read them these criminals their miranda rights and we won't be at war referring to mutallab on christmas day on the northwest airlines flight. do you agree first of all, with what voip dick cheney is talking about? >> well, the white house immediately shot back and says that president says we're at war. i think that vice-president has a point. if you're at war you don't treat hims a criminal defendant, you treat him as a combatant. when you get somebody on the
battlefield you don't turn them over to a lawyer and say i'm not going to say anything. you put them in the hands of the cia and fbi and military interrogators and squeeze out information who they're associated with, who they know, what they know and what's coming next and try to get that information possible. but if you view it as a criminal justice matter, then you say well, we've got to urn it-- we've got to get them a lawyer and give him miranda rights and tell them they don't have to tell us anything. >> you know what democrats are saying about this of course, comparing what happened with richard reid the shoe bomber and says exactly what the bush administration did with him, treated him as a criminal and he's in a super max prison. how is that any different? >> remember, the time frame. the military tribunal act had just been passed by congress in 2002 or 2001. richard reid just got on the
scope and there was a law in which you could process and justice through the military tribunal. and the experience with richard reid helped convince the bush administration, high value targets anybody in this plot like this needed to be treated differently and as a combatant so the information can be gotten from them. every time we did that with a high value target, some of it is in the public record how valuable it is, we learned about other plots on individuals and actors from the high sal targets interrogated and it was the experience of richard reid and how unsatisfactory it was, we got him and convicted him and what we ought to be interested in this, all the connections and information we can glean that will lead us to others and keep other plots from being launched. >> vice-president cheney released and gave this statement to politico.com and they penned an op-ed piece and quoting, saying that dick cheney is wrong about this, i
want your take on this. obama, president obama had basically adopted the same general approach to homeland security that is similar to president bush's plan. there's been no huge increase in homeland security budget, no radical makeover of intelligence agencies, therefore that vice-president cheney's criticism of president obama might ab reflection of his own administration. what's your take on that? >> i think that politico is wrong on this. there have been several changes, they do treat the people at criminal defendants not combatants. they're taking them out of the military tribunal system and putting them into the criminal justice system in a high profile in new york which is going to cause all kinds of problems, we're going to reveal sources and methods and then we're going to give them a huge international platform to blast the united states and to inflame the islamic world. i mean, there are big changes. granted a lot of what they've-- a lot they've kept, but that highlights that the changes they've made and the changes they've made have been very, very bad.
i mean, you know, this idea that if we get an enemy combatant we're going to treat them as somebody trying to knock off the 7-eleven and lawyer them up and tell them you have a right to remain silent. we ought to be taking that person and sending them to gitmo and saying now what, we want to know everything you can tell us and you know, we instead we're telling them, hey, now, here is the system, game it for your advantage. if you want to, if you want say, i'll give you a bit of information, but you have to take the death penalty off the table and then i'm going to force you to reveal sources a he methods and broadcast them to the world. >> you pen add piece for the wall street journal for new years resolutions for our political leaders, more with karl rove in a minute. including his own maybe new year's resolution, he's got one for joe biden, desiree rogers. over the past year we'll show some of the most embarrassing moments.
>> time for one of our favorite segments. karl rove unplugged. after 2009 we're looking for a blank slate. karl rove has new year's resolutions for lawmakers, you penned this in the wall street journal. vice-president joe biden, what's your resolution for him. >> stop speaking out publicly, every time he does so the obama white houses uses it to make the president look goodbye comparison and causes people to wonder why biden got picked in the first place. >> that's a good resolution. >> speaker of the house nancy pelosi, your resolution for her? >> start treating those pet blue dogs better or else she'll lose votes. we're in election year, a lot
of them will say i can't vote for a san francisco liberal and survive back home. and elections. janet napolitano secretary of homeland security. what should we do? >> resolve to be reassuring, how unnerving for her to go out and say the system worked on sunday, when on friday the system had clearly broken down. >> senate majority leader harry reid, a resolution for you as well. >> enjoy your last term in the united states senate, the only way he's going to win is if nevada republicans bust each other up so badly he can eradiate whoever dominates. his numbers in nevada are dreadful and deservedly so. >> and bell nelson as well. >> desiree rogers, perhaps the person responsible letting in the party crashers. >> yeah, follow santa claus, make a list and check it twice, preferably at the white house gates. >> good solution there. >> the dnc chairman tim kane what should he do, his
resolution? >> facetiously he should get prepared for a bad year, he's going to have one. he ought to focus on getting president obama to raise him a lot of money and focus on states where the democrats are in control of the reschool districting from cess, not only a bad 2010, a bad 2012 congressional election, we reapportion and the congressional seats in 2011. >> what about the republican party as whole, the g.o.p. as a whole for the new year? >> well, my resolution, my suggested resolution there was don't sit on your laurels. you've done a good job in winning the battle for public opinion, but they've got to be prepared to tell the american people what they want to do in 2010. they can't just surf to victory on the basis of dissatisfaction with president obama and congressional democrats. they've got to be prepared to take the next step which is to say here is what we do about spending and deficits and taxes and health care and the other issues and jobs, the other issues that the american people care about.
>> now, you picked on all the of these guys here, resolution for karl rove in 2010. what is karl rove's resolution? >> my resolution is to read a book a week in 2010. i've got-- i was writing my own in 2009 and so i got out of the habit, but i'm going to get back in the swing of it with a book a week in 2010. one for you. >> what's that? >> i've got some resolutions for you. clayton, first of all, i want you to get some therapy in order to stop picking on alisyn. >> thank you, karl. >> and while you're at it, take dave in there so that dave gets some therapy to help him stand up for alisyn when you come after her like you do all the time and alisyn, marb har shal arts class so next time he tries to stuff new a trunk. >> karl, you'll never get over that. >> one on my mind, what book are you going to start with, one of the oprah book club
books? >> paul johnson's short biography of winston churchi churchill, and now i'm reading a fantastic book, he i juggle a couple at the same time "age of wonder". you spent new year's eve, what did you do. >> went to west texas at the persimmon grant ranch and we were hunting and invited to hunt blue quail and pheasant and dove at the ranch in west texas. >> you shot quail, you shot a dove, karl? >> a christmas-- >> they're very tasty, very tasty. >> a beautiful white dove fluttered out of the bush and carl eight it f carl-- karl ate it for dinner. >> karl, happy new year to you, i appreciate you having my back.
>> she doesn't need you againeding you. >> happy new year, alisyn, happy new year everybody. >> a book a week. >> i might read a book a month. >> dave is going to start with "super fudge" this year. more controversy surrounding president obama-- >> super fudgements like nancy drew. >> this guy here who says he mischaracterized his km. >> we have our home depot, mike cartozza. >> i have some comics, the archies. >> we're going to talk about carpeting, if you're in the market for new carpet, the basics of what you choose and how you choose it and how you extend the life of that carpet. >> enough picking on me, i read to my kids every night. rick, what's going on with the weather? >> hey, you know what we've
>> welcome back everybody. alisyn camerota here with dave briggs and clayton morris. senators have been rallying around president obama's pick to head the tsa even though we're learning that some senators may have known that this gentleman mischaracterized his testimony when they vote today advance his nomination. joining us to talk more about this from washington is caroline shively. tell us what the problem is here, caroline. >> alisyn, surely more controversy picking up. some senators knew before they voted to confirm errol
southers, that he mischaracterized an incident in his past, 20 years ago when he was a fbi agent and accessed confidential records about his ex-wife's boyfriend twice. he told a senate committee he asked a police officer to get those records, but a day after the vote southers admitted he was the one who did the searches. southers says the incorrect testimony was inadvertent. he couldn't remember what he had done back in 1988 even it got him a censure from the fbi. susan collins from maine, says she suspected it at the hearing, but approved it. now see says she's satisfied with the explanation. >> jim demint isn't. originally blocked over originally fearing he'd unionize tsa. now concerned he can't tell the truth. hair i reid pushed for a quick firm confirmation vote, but he
might have a fight on his hand. >> i always think of recess from elementary school. not the same thing. >> on the playground. i wish i got two or three weeks off for recess. >> that would be nice. in the meantime, your headlines. what's happening at this hour, start with a fox news alert, there's a new warning from iran. the country says the west has until the end of the month to accept tehran's counter proposal to u.n. drafted plan on nuclear exchange or iran will begin making its own nuclear fuel. the proposal says the west must sell tehran the fuel or swap it for iran's enriched uranium. if no deal is made. iran says it will enrich to a higher level. this sounds like a no win deal for the rest of us. the country miss-- dismissed i should say an end of 2009 deadline on the u.n. drafted deal to swap enriched uranium for nuclear fuel. the deal would have reduced iran's capabilities to make nuclear weapons. iraq says it will sue five blackwater security guards for
the deaths of 17 unarmed civilians. the u.s. federal judge dropped all charges against the men this week saying the prosecutors made numerous mistakes in the investigation and the iraqi government is urging prosecutors to appeal the ruling and news of the charges being dropped has angered many in the arab world. president obama is placing the blame for the failed bombing attempt on northwest flight 253 on an al-qaeda affiliate in yemen. in his weekly radio address the president promised to fix the security situation. >> i will do everything in my power to make sure our hard working men and women in our intelligence law enforcement and homeland security communities have the tools and resources they need to keep america safe, this includes making sure these communities and the people in them are coordinating effectively and are held accountable at every level. >> the president also says that the u.s. will continue its partnership with yemen to fight extremists there. the annual mummers parade in philadelphia goes off without
a hitch on new year's day. my cousins are always involved in this and love this spectacular parade. >> yes, there's my cousin right there. >> hey. >> and the parade is filled with caostumes and pageantry and best costumes in string bands, fancy brigades and the parade sun with of the longest running conditions in the country. ban in 1900 as an official event for the city and the parade has been going since the 1800's to celebrate the new year. the west parade in the countries. >> what is the mummers parade, they've got a mummers museum, my home city, i was born on new year's eve and got to see the next on new year's eve a parade. and my mom says that's why it's for you. >> ironically that's not why he dressed as 3 cp.
the king of talk was rushed to a hospital in hawaii, rush limbaugh was released yesterday. the good news his heart is feeling fine. he did not have a heart attack. he does not have heart disease although he did weigh in on the condition of our health care here in the united states. >> the treatment i received here was the best that the world has to offer. and based on what happened to me here, i don't think there's one thing wrong with the american health care system. it's working just fine, just dandy. >> and of course, he experienced pain in the upper left portion of his chest about a day or two after he was playing golf, playing golf in hawaii and rushed to the hospital and you've got to take this stuff seriously and had advice for somebody else who might start having chest pain. good advice. >> i'm 58, will be 59 in a couple of weeks and you start thinking about these kinds of things. don't mess with it. anytime you have heart pain or
chest pain and you have no idea what it is and it's something you've never experienced before, turn it over to professionals. right off the bat. . >> sure, he's breathing a sigh of relief because he says the doctors found no heart damage, no heart disease, no arterial disease, no blockage, but it still has to be pretty nerve wracking not to know what caused the chest pain though there are many, living proof how it could have been-- >> a similar situation. >> you had a spasm and i think i heard him say the doctors thought that was one theory, an esophageal spasm. >> yeah, the doctor was here earlier and quite frequently masks as her things and could be related to the diet or stress and not your heart at all. he's back on the air, run reporter are you still taking addictive pain killers he admitted a problem years ago. no he's not. he's taking prednisone for the pain in his back, not the pain
killers reported about. >> and he's expected back on the air. >> wednesday. >> let's check with rick reichmuth with a check of your forecast. >> hey, guys, it's a little bit cold. are you cold? >> uh-huh. >> cold, how cold? >> cold like freezing like an ice pop. >> that's cold, she's right. take a look at the temperatures right now, cold air is settled in across the eastern two-thirds of the countries and this is your feels-like temperature. feels like minus 32 in minneapolis ands only feels like 17 here. better than minus 32 i've got to tell you and move forward, i think we've got, here we go the satellite radar picture and through cuba, colder air in florida and snow across parts of the north and headed towards northern nupping and one storm is going to continue to bring significant snow across much of new england for the next couple of days. all right, take a look at some video. it's this time of year, we've got the polar plunge. all of these people who are doing, look at this, austin,
texas not that bad if you're in austin or nashville doing the polar plunge and in colorado, in minnesota, would you do that? >> yeah, absolutely. >> maybe for about 12 seconds and then i'm out. >> all right, okay. we've got some takers. we're going to get a bucket of water out here and have you dive in in a second. there you go. >> thank you, rick, i'll join them. while we're ripping in the new year, why not give your home an upgrade and new carpet. mike cartozzo from home depot and my floor director will be bummed if i don't say cut a rug. >> all morning. >> first the style of carpet you're looking for? >> when you think about carpet, obviously, that's the first thing you think about is the style and color because those are the two most obvious choices you have. let's quickly review the types of carpet out there. there's texture, the smooth velvety look, probably the most popular, everybody had
that in their house one time or another. up one step from that is the twist carpet and you can see this is literally twisted a bit more, so it's got a bit more character to it. a bit of a pattern to it, over this. and then loop carpet, berber is a great example of that. goes with anything first of all and great at hiding traffic pattern and this is great for a high traffic kwar. >> and great if you have kids. >> kids, exactly. >> mopping up spills is a little easier. >> and the other thing is color, you mentioned color, it used to be that people that had kids and pets want add darker color to hide some accidents and things that happened, but these days carpets have come so far, technologically, that they're so much easier to clean, really not as much of an issue, it's a personal preference. >>, but the thicker, the more expensive. >> not necessarily, just depends on how it's put together and density of it, a lot of things determine that. >> okay. under that, don't save money here on the padding because it's important. you don't see it, but it's key, right? >> well, that's a mistake that people make, they think because you don't see it it doesn't matter. it does. any padding is going to do its
job, but the better the padding, the better he, not just the feel of the padding what people think of. >> it's nice on the feet when you're walking around in slippers and bare feet. >> it's thicker and protects the carpet from the floor because it's on the subflooring, the more you walk on it more wear and tear and going to extend the life of your carpet the better padding. >> how long might we get out of some of the carpets. >> depends, depends. >> you could get 20 years? >> a lot of the newer carpets you can get a 20 year warranty, made to last. >> innovations here, i mentioned it earlier, a lot of innovation in carpet and these carpets look like any other carpet which is great because you'd think they're advanced and do the special things they might look or feel different, they don't, but let's talk about this first. this is smart strand from dupo dupont. this has a lifetime warranty for stain warranty. the starn stain resistance is
built in the fiber of the carpet. much more resistent to the staining, it's not going to wear off wash off, is it's in there forever. very, very stain resistent. >> very kid friendly. >> this is amazing the purist collection, made to absorb odors out of the air. if you've got a smoker in the house, cook a lot, have pets. this chemically absorbs the odors out of the air and over time kind of decomposes the gases so it really cleans the air. so if you're sensitive to those things this is a great choice for you. >> perfect for those cat lovers out there. and this is not a simple test to install. you guys do that. >> we take care of it. a great deal unheard of. any kind of carpet, any manufacturer, any style, any number of rooms, it doesn't matter how big. $97 for basic installation, no matter how many rooms. >> six or seven bedroom home
still $97. >> still $97 and quickly the cleaning of the carpet, a lot of services to clean the carpet. we offer chem dry, a safer, drier cleaner way to dry the carpet. if you're sensitive to bleaches, cleansers and soaps. what they do they infuse the carpets with millions of microscopic carbonated bubbles and loosen the carpet. a great healthy way to clean your carpet. >> that's stuff i can use in my house. mike cartozza happy new year to you. home depot.com/carpet for information. a passenger snuffed out a flaming bomb with his hands on northwest flights 253. should your own safety be left in your hands? the former head of el al airlines on why terrorists didn't mess with his planes next. and also the best and worst of "fox & friends" from '09. not sure if that qualifies as

of our military experts has suggested about profiling and get your response? >> people aren't going to like it because it's not politically correct, but every muslim, male, age 18 to 28, 'cause that's the profile we've got to start profiling is going to have to be strip searched. >> does el al, which has such a success story, do you profile every young muslim male? >> no, we interview every passenger, man, woman, whatsoever that's come to take the flight and just to show you that we don't have anything specific against muslims and at least in two cases, non-muslims, one in zurich, switzerland, when german criminal guy was released from jail and he was found by the terrorists, they convinced him to smuggle drugs to tel aviv with el al flight. he believed them because they give him money, but they packed the luggage and they
towed him to the airport. the luggage went through the machine and nothing was identified. only through an interview he had and the questions of good qualified and well-trained guards, we stopped him on the ground. >> yes, and your point is you profile everybody, not just young muslim men, you know all of your your passengers. let's get to the air marshal issue. i think this was important. why was there no air marshal on this international flight from amsterdam. >> i wrote to the authorities the biggest mistake we make in this country, that we don't have air marshals on each flight. it's impossible that el al flight will leave without air marshals. now, we know that we are dealing with sophisticated enemy and my question is very simple, don't you understand they will learn which flight we have air marshals and which flight they don't. >> how will they learn that, through dry runs? >> sure, they can get
information, believe me, by flying regular passengers, to look where are they. i have to tell you that i found air marshals in two seconds, when i kept one of the flights. are we just trying to save money? why aren't we having air marshals on at least international flights. i don't know if we're trying to save money without air marshals, i can tell you from my experience, that this country, we-- the security system collapsed, simply collapsed. we don't take one more step ahead to find out what's wrong with our system. billions of dollars were spent for security system for september 11th. did we have security? definitely not. now, where is the money, billions of dollars, simply "gone with the wind." if you can answer this in a few words because we're out of time. what is the answer, how do we solve this problem in the united states? >> based security system similar to el al. sit with experts, they can explain to you that we must
cover every angle of any department that has connected with every flight. and with this, we cover everything that if something they with try to happen, we can stop them on the ground and to save life. >> i hope that the tsa and the homeland security department has your number. thanks for coming in and telling us all about this. >> thank you very much for having me. >> sure. all right, 2009 saw its share of highlights and, well, low lights. on "fox & friends" up next, a look back at some of our more, well, memorable moments. like clayton in a kilt. i've finally gotten a chance to go to the oscars, it's so thrilling. >> why, you're not-- >> what are you talking about? #ñ
