3:06 pm
attorneys and attorneys from the ethics committee. that's no secret whato. what i have been told is they're no closer to a deal. this is washington and capitol hill and things change in a minute. for now they're not working a deal but if there was, it would volume rangel admitting publicly he's guilty of something. he says he wants to fight. >> shepard: i'm confident republicans won't miss an opportunity to point fingers across the aisle. what politician wouldn't. >> exactly. they have to be careful because they say rangel is in enough trouble. they don't want to look too political but john boehner pointed to nancy pelosi, saying this is your opportunity to show us how to do it, let's see it get done. >> shepard: shannon bream in our d.c. newsroom. thank you. the coast guard is on the scene of yet another oil spill or leak in this case in the gulf of mexico. this one is not related to the bp oil disaster which, by the

3:21 pm
enemy bomb makers. iran and afghanistan share a long border and according to the leaked information it appears the u.s. military has been concerned about iran funneling weapons to the insurgents. with us, fox news contributor judith miller. >> just back from iraq. >> these papers, you know, i guess it depends on how you feel about the war. some are going damn them for releasing it and others saying finally. you say they may be harmful. >> they could be. we don't know. the military, before it understood what was in the documents, was quick to condemn them as was the white house. as we go through the papers and day after day we get revelations just like the ones we've heard now, you have to ask yourself the critical question, how did we obtain, we, the united
3:22 pm
states, obtain this information now spilled out over the internet. and were the people we're spying on the iranians, aware of the fact for example that we knew we were aware of their brokering of an arms deal between the taliban and north korea. were we aware of some of the information being reported? were they aware we're onto them? that's the key thing. are we endangering the sources of this information. it's impossible to know until we know the information that has been disclosed and how it was obtained and who might be in danger because of that. it's a treacherous area. >> shepard: the newspapers said they went to extensive lengths to try to make sure that the names of those who could be harmed or might have information would be changed. you're talking about specific
3:23 pm
information that iran or other parties might get. >> right. i mean look, some of this, you can change a name or place but one item in the "new york times" about an official, afghan official, who traveled three hours by taxi from a province and said help me, the taliban have blown up my century tower and my son lost his legs. how many obscure officials who have been working with the americans had a son in that town near the pakistani border whose legs were blown off? will this help the taliban identify that individual? does it put him in more danger? look, i know the "new york times" is responsible. the "wall street journal" is responsible, they're going to try to protect sources an methods of information. but oftentimes you just don't know. as careful as you are, you're going to endanger sources. but should the information have
3:24 pm
come out? it tells us a lot about how badly this war is going on. it makes concrete the very, very tough road ahead for general petraeus and the 30,000 troops we've sent and raises questions about the strategy. >> shepard: doesn't it raise questions as those who are for this endeavor and those who are against alike suggest there's an appearance that no matter what we do our goal may not be worth attaining. >> what is our goal? what's the definition of victory. >> shepard: we're supposed to give that back to a government that can take care of itself but this government is so corrupt, the head of the government's brother is involved in the drug trade. >> then we see extraordinary items, orphanages opened for
3:25 pm
nonorphans, the construction team goes back and finds the orphans weren't orphans because the afghan define an orphan as someone whose father is gone. they have a mother but we spend in some cases million dollars of dollars on projects only to find out the money is wasted, stolen, misused. i saw that again and again in iraq and it raises so many questions about what we've been doing with our hard-earned taxpayer money in places like iraq and afghanistan. >> shepard: you wonder what it is to make us think people who can't read and write and don't know anyone who can read and write and don't know anything about poppy farming and their own tribal customs and don't knee anything about what goes on 20 miles away, what makes us think we can go help them establish a national government that will be able to sustain itself and keep troubles down? it seems ridiculous.
3:26 pm
you wonder if history won't say what a bunch of about a buffoon -- buffoon. >> exactly. especially with a time deadline. david petraeus tried to move it out saying we're not going to withdraw in a year, we're going to begin a phased withdrawal. >> it will be 2050. our grandkids will be yeah, a war in afghanistan. we're getting from. >> it's astonishing the extent to so many voices on the extreme left and far right have joined in raising questions about our strategy in afghanistan. even people who sported the war in iraq or opposed it in the beginning but said now we must make a success of it are raising questions about whether or not we want to get into the same quagmire in afghanistan, a bigger country with far less as stake. the only thing at stake is
3:27 pm
president obama's campaign pledge this was the essential war and we were going to not walk away. i think at this point congress has genuinely got to ask some tough questions about whether or not this investment is worth it. >> he can get a do-over on that statement if you ask nicely. >> maybe if you ask him. >> i don't get to talk to him. better that way. jude judith, great to see you. >> nice to be back. >> finally, sanity returns as we take ourselves to planet blago. details continue to pour in. the governor's lawyer says our blago has a big mouth. is that why our blagojevich didn't take the stand? lynn sweet, reporter from the "chicago sun-times" be a all over this and joins us live next. plus, yeah, poor bear. a well-known television host and

3:32 pm
him, but the impact could be devastating. if convicted and jurors say they didn't hear from him, the gamble distant pay off. it's a gamble, including theatrical closing arguments. >> shepard: i heard it was quite a spectacle. >> it is. the attorney, sam adams. >> shepard: junior or, jr. >> junior defended r. kelly, who got out and remember, there's -- that was a tough case too. sometimes when you have a case like this where you have no defense, they didn't put anyone on the stand to defend them, they have a gamble in so many ways. not only did blagojevich not
3:33 pm
testify, they didn't put on a defense. they say the federal government did not prove their case. >> shepard: did they say in opening statements to the jury, you will hear from former governor blagojevich? so many jury surveys indicated the one thing a jury hates is a promise in openings that never comes true. >> well, in that case, it doesn't bode well. it was promised. one of the bites in how many pieces of tape through the year and a half of blag flag blag saying he was going to testify? i was in court and he said lynn, come back to hear me testify. that's why the strategy, the lawyers trying to transfer the blame saying it's me, i'm the lawyer, i muzzled him. do you think someone will believe it? maybe, maybe not. >> shepard: when do you think we
3:34 pm
might get something? will the jury be charged today? >> maybe. as we speak now, the last, day 28 in a trial that lasted weeks less than anyone thought. either tonight or tomorrow. so soon. soon we'll know. >> shepard: very soon. lynn sweet from the sun times. >> the case symbolic of the breakdown in law and order after hurricane katrina finally moving forward in federal court. five years later. what's this case about? set to happen today. we'll get to it. plus the barefoot bandit survived on gatorade and candy bars. i do that everything weekend. new details what he did in the days before his arrest. that's next. ifs are e
