6:04 am
>> rick: do the sales go away. >> on saturday is it done. >> clayton: this friday i've got black friday tech deals on the show and like $300 savings that vanish on saturday. >> rick: okay. >> dave: and appear on cyber monday. there you go. >> rick: weather is good for pretty much everything. we've got a nice week in store in general. and i hate thanksgiving week, so many times big storms and hints we're dealing with a nor'easter, we're not. and there's disturbance across parts of the carolinas, and it's going to remain there and shift off towards the northeast and it's not going to have any big impacts to the northeast, but right now rain, maybe heavy at times across the coastal carolina area, a minor beach erosion, and then you go across the west and this is where the activity is. big rain, big mountain snow, a series of storms lined up to continue to pull in here and bring up a lot of moisture. what it won't do is move into the central of the country and we'll see the pieces break
6:05 am
off. and light rains across new mexico and west texas and maybe missouri, but that's about 1/10 of an inch of rain and nothing that's going to cause problems for anyone. temperature-wise looking good in the northern plains and that's around 15 to 20 degrees above where you typically would be this time of year. so it's really, really nice here today. tomorrow, the temps remain warm and in fact builds across the great lakes and 56 towards chicago and everyone looking very nice for what could be kind of a cold time, guys. >> clayton: now there's no excuse to get there and rake the leaves you've been putting off. >> dave: you know what? the superstorm came and blew a lot of them away and i figured, i like that. >> another batch. >> clayton: another storm and-- >> another superstorm >> and happy thanksgiving week, today a sunday, we'll kick off thanksgiving. >> clayton: and welcome to ainsley. and we've got a lot of big news stories to cover for you, plus taking the president live
6:06 am
at a big press conference this afternoon and fun cooking segments we'll get to later. first this story. >> dave: fox news alert. video of the president arriving in bangkok and thailand is the first country in the swing through asia. the first international trip since his reelection. >> clayton: peter doocy is live in washington following the president with all of the details, good morning, peter. >> good morning, clayton, it is president obama's first international trip since the election, what they hope to get done before they get back to d.c., meet with the longest reigning monarch in the world, the king of thailand overnight and he's been in power since 1946. and a fun fact he was actually born in massachusetts, and next up comes burma, the president is visiting despite the very shaky record on human
6:07 am
rights, but the white house says they think the best way to get burma to shape up is to directly engage them and add that the burmese have made continued positive action in the early stages of transition to democracy. a trip to cambodia on the schedule where he'll attend a summit with the association of southeast asian nations and host nation like burma, less than impressive human rights and although that's concerning, the president will bring it up when he sees the cambodia prime minister. even though he's away from the white house, the president is monitoring, we're told, what's happening in israel and gaza and someone asked the top advisor if the united states is advising to go forward or put the breaks on gaza. and the advisor says israel is going to have to make their own choices about military operation. >> thanks. >> clayton: when you take an
6:08 am
asian trip we'd end up in coach all night, and deep vein thrombosis and the president gets to sleep on the plane and bound down. >> dave: fresh and no jet lag and air force one. meanwhile, while the president is over there in asia, back here, still questions about what happened, yes, in benghazi regarding the intelligence leading up to and after the fact. four americans being killed there in benghazi and now, the question is, again, who took out the term al-qaeda and inserted extremist in the talking points that went to eventually susan rice and told americans? who edited those talking points? that was the question given to david petraeus on friday, no answer there. >> clayton: we thought we'd get it, so friday we didn't get it. thought maybe saturday, we didn't get it. sunday, no answer, but new insight into exactly some of the editing process done with the talking points and a
6:09 am
statement from the white house deputy national security advisor, ben rose, the only edit made by the white house and state department was to change the word consulate to the word diplomatic facility. those are two words. since the facility in benghazi was not formally a consulate. we were presented with points, and the only edit made by the white house was the factual edit how to refer to the facility. no mention though of removing al-qaeda and putting in the term extremist. so still we have a gray area, something in between the white house and the intelligence community somebody edited it. >> so petraeus testified on friday, al-qaeda was a part of the statement and should have been part of the talking points and susan rice had the press conference on 16th of september. four to five days after the events on september 11th and said there was no mention of the word terrorist in her talking points. was it in there?
6:10 am
and who took it out. >> dave: we don't know what we saw. a good point. no one's got to question her and no one got to sit down awn talk to her because the president said go after me, not her. >> and he said why are we linking her? she had nothing to do with this, the question, if she had nothing to do with it, why was she selected to have the press conference on the 16th. >> clayton: what governor huckabee said on our show i think was revealing. plausible deniability. she was the one not involved in the discussions, she's not in the state department, not in intelligence epicenter. >> dave: she didn't know what happened so technically, right, she wasn't lying. she was just reciting a script. congress not buying it, trei gowdy not buying it, thinks the white house edited the version that we saw play out on the sunday shows. >> they knew before anyone else knew it was terrorism. why would the department of
6:11 am
state. why would the cia, why would they lie, the narrative was al-qaeda was on its heels and when the narrative is al-qaeda is at the front door and about to kill four americans. of course they knew and scrubbed out that information so susan rice either didn't have it or didn't use it when she went on the television talk shows on sunday. >> dave: the thing i can't figure out, david petraeus on friday said that again, i knew from the start, we knew from the start it was terrorism. why in those talking points was there ever any mention of a youtube video and a spontaneous protest, if the intelligence community knew what it was, why was that ever a part of the talking points, another question we likely will not get an answer to, don't hold your breath. >> clayton: as peter king
6:12 am
talked about yesterday, the bureaucratic way of questioning them. >> dave: getting susan rice. >> clayton: protocol, to get the answers and she may not know anyway. >> at one point in the weekly standard it says, the president says we're after an election now i think it's important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi and i'm happy to cooperate in any way the congress wants and then the writer here, steven hayes goes on, was it not important before the election. >> clayton: what did it have to do with telection. and benjamin netanyahu issuing a strong warning as hamas fires more rockets into israel and a massive air strike from the israel. is the middle east on the brink of war? the consulate general is here this morning. >> and one of the scenes we've seen captured on video. ♪ and i'm proud to be an american where at least i know

6:17 am
ambassador. >> thank you for having me. >> dave: the latest what we just said. benjamin netanyahu told the cabinet he's ready to significantly be expand its operation in gaza. is israel prepared for a ground invasion into gaza and what could incite that? >> look the mandate from the inception was to remove this strategic threat posed by thousands of rockets on israelis-- innocent israelis paralyzing our entire southern region. so the goal was to remove that threat and the mandate given to the defense forces from the government was not limited in time nor in scope. so in other words, the possibility of israel moving in with ground forces certainly exists, it depends how the operation develops on the ground. right now, hamas is firing rockets. hamas is still displaying a tremendous degree of aggression towards israel and the purpose of this operation is to eliminate that threat.
6:18 am
>> more than 1100 rockets have been launched from gaza into israel in this year alone. just this morning, i read about one shot down by the iron dome system headed towards tel aviv. the question is this though, benjamin benjamin netanyahu is all about red lines and he let us in front of the u.n., here is our red line during enrichment. where is the red line in terms of aggression shown by gaza, by hamas. >> look, the problem with hamas didn't start yesterday. we're dealing with an organization that is not willing to accept israel's right to exist. so, obviously, there are no easy solutions. when you're facing an enemy who is not even willing to recognize your right to exist, doesn't even value the same values, does it celebrate life, nutures the culture of death and they're actually saying it. all you have to do is read their charter and see what they think about israel and what they think about the united states. >> when you look at the map, it is of course, tells the
6:19 am
picture, the whole story, when you look where israel is and what it's surrounded by, more importantly, you get a sense of how frightening that situation is for israel. here is the question though, when you have egypt, when you have tunisia, when you have turkey, all democratically elected government. all u.s. allies, appearing to support hamas, what does that do to your position in the region? >> well, entering this operation, we assume that some of the countries surrounding us are not going to be happy about it, but at the end of the day, our job, as the only western democracy in the region, is to provide safety and security with our people. i had the privilege of hearing the mayor of serote, his little town of 25,000 people had to endure over 8,000 rockets and missiles. i want you to think about it. i want our viewers to think
6:20 am
about what would have happened here in manhattan if we had only one rocket. >> dave: war, that's what would-- >> this little town 8,000 of them in seven years and this is unthinkable for us to allow hamas and continue it paralyze our lives, not to mention the loss of life, not to mention the damage to israel's economy that's estimated in the billions. >> dave: it is a frightening situation, clearly you're not disagreeing with the fact that hamas has support in the region and that will make this situation going forward. we appreciate you being here. >> thank you for having me. >> dave: coming up, getting into a military mindset? up next, a veteran shares tips that you need to reach financial stability forever. and a nationwide drug shortage becoming so extreme, doctors are forced to ration medications. is your prescription on the list? details on a scary situation just ahead.
6:21 am
6:22 am
6:23 am
6:24 am
>> welcome back. here is a seg. everyone can relate to. especially if you're dealing with credit card debt. i was certainly after college. one military veteran the best way to boot out debt is to bank on a military mindset. >> ainsley: he's training to help people reach financial stability and he's here, a military veteran and certified financial planner. and the author of "dollars and
6:25 am
uncomm uncommon sense" and take us through your financial boot camp. what do you do. >> change the way you think about money and you need to take charge of it. you know, the definition of leadership is the process of influencing others to accomplish their goals by providing purpose, direction and motivation, good leaders seek responsibility and take responsibility for their actions. if you want to accomplish your money goal, you have to take responsibilities for your spending and savings decisions and no one is going to start taking charge of their money. >> i was no money after college and paying for chinese food on a credit card and finally, you just have to be honest with yourself, that, all right, i've got some debt here and i've got to clean this up and that's really one of your next steps here, you've got to be honest and you've got to look yourself in the mirror, right? >> yeah, you know, i left 32,000 worth of credit card debt and the whole time, i
6:26 am
thought it was normal to have debt and i was telling myself. i didn't have a problem. once i was honest with myself, and i accepted that, hey, i had a spending problem, once i did that, then i was on-- i took the first step on towards getting out of the credit card debt. >> what did you do next? >> you know, the first thing you have to do is assess your situation. what, you know what you're making, but how much are you spending? and once you can identify your wasteful spending you can cut it out. if you you want to get out of credit card debt first thing, cut up your credit cards. pull out the tupperware bowl, fill it with water and stick it in the freezer and tempted to use the credit cards, a while before it thaws out. >> clayton: you talk about the sacrifice, and tough areas, maybe that $5 latte on a regular basis or you're smoking, spending what $10 a pack of cigarettes, areas you need to look in your life and say, you know what? i need to sacrifice.
6:27 am
>> definitely our armed servicemen and women and their families make sacrifices each and every day to keep your country free, and you're not required to make those sacrifices, but little sacrifices a latte every day and you need the latest and greatest electronic gadgets? you need 300 television channels? find certain areas in your finances eliminate or at least reduce. >> ainsley: it's easier said than done, a lot of people are out there. they want to save and get out of debt. what is it for you that made that light bulb go off? >> you know, i had to change the way that i thought about money and you know, life isn't fair, life is hard, and you know, bad things happen to good people, but you have to use those times to motivate you to make different decisions about your money and like i said shall it's not an easy thing to do, but if you continue to make excuses, nothing is going to change for you. the first thing you need to do is change the way you think about money and start taking the necessary steps to fix
6:28 am
your financial problems. >> so, once you lay it out on paper and see where you're wasting money and things you need to start sacrificing be, you have a plan to help people get back on the right path and call your 10-10-80 plan. once we've done that, how we can get on the right path. >> 10-10-80 rule. most people spend everything they make and spend what's left off and give only when possible. and most people have issues with their money, i want to do the opposite of everybody is, give away 10% of what you make, save 10% and live off the rest and first thing, steve says, i can't afford to give 10%, i tell them you can't afford not to. when you give, i believe you receive. i don't have an agenda, i don't care where you give your money to. if you're tithing at church that's great or wounded warriors project, awesome, but if you have money, you have to give. people that are good with
6:29 am
their money, they give. it's not common or uncommon sense, but rethinks the way you think about money and you have to give 10%. >> ainsley: great advice. >> clayton: the book dollars and uncommon sense, thank you for waking up with us on military time he can get up at 4 a.m. >> ainsley: he's done a for a while. thanks steven for your service. what do you do if your mother-in-law starts choking at the thanksgiving dinner table. do you save her? of course you do. >> clayton: what? >>, but, seriously, next the life saving tips you're going to need this thursday. >> clayton: and talk about a lot of nerve. union workers at one of the nation's largest airports threatening to walk off the job on one of the busiest travel days of the years. will you be left high and dry. >> ainsley: a heart warming story out of hurricane sandy devastation and dozens of dogs, so cute, left orphans and now need new homes.

6:35 am
israeli cities and two more towards tel aviv and those were intercepted by the iron dome system. it's not perfect, but there were a couple of rockets that fell in towns, injuring several people. we were in an apartment building where the rockets came through two cements ceilings and into the second floor and the israeli airs for is continuing day five of what many say is the most intensive part of the bombing campaign and flown various sorties and much of the hamas infrastructure is flattened, going after major buildings and communication centers, those kind ever things and 52 people dead inside gaza and a number of they will militant and a number of them also civilians, so far about two people killed today, those were children and the warning coming now from prime minister netanyahu, he says that israel is getting ready to widen this offensive, he says, and they are ready to bring in the next phase.
6:36 am
and that quite simply is a warning that the ground phase is about to begin. the troops are poised. we saw a number of tanks with engines on and guns sighted in. this is a country in war mode, that's in part to send a message, right now inside egypt there are negotiations going on between the egyptians, some arab leaders and also hamas and islam jihad that control the gaza strip about a possible cease-fire and israel saying 24 to 48 hours to bring it to the table or go on the ground and became you succumb and finally stop firing the rockets. back to you in new york. >> dave: are you seeing the ground troops on the border escalate from when we talked to you yesterday or is it about the same? >> reporter: absolutely. in the past 24 hours, there are significantly more ground troops and a sense they're beginning to get ready. we've seen the special forces teams now driving around in their hume vis, the camouflage

6:55 am
>> clayton: and the trickle down never works some liberals say, what evident is there that this actually did work. >> i say the president needs a new history lesson and he missed part of the economic history of our country and i looked at our piece we published in the wall street journal, the force times when the taxes cut in the last century, 1920's and 1960's under john f. kennedy, a democrat and the '80s, of considers under ronald reagan and george w. bush's tax rates in 2003. it's interesting, i found two universal effects of those tax cuts. first, in every instance we cut the rates, the economy worked faster. it did work, mr. president, we got a lot of growth. but the second may be more interesting, is that guess what happened to the share of taxes paid by the rich. they went up, in fact, if you want to get more money, mr. president, out of rich people, cut their tax rate, don't raise them, because
6:56 am
history proves it. >> dave: certainly did in the reagan years and another peace in the wall street journal a couple back, clinton rates, raised top tier 39.6 and as the authors of that piece said produced the one period of shared prosperity not because they raised taxes, but certainly lead to growth, right? >> no question. the 1990's was a prosperous era, but i think that sometimes people get a little of that history wrong what happened in the 1990's, president clinton raised taxes in the first year in office and remember, the first two years in office were a catastrophe and in fact so much so the republicans came in and won a historic election and after that, the next six years, bill clinton moved to the middle unlike barack obama who is still in left field. that when we had newt gingrich

7:02 am
>> this all unfolded on friday and we learned when general david petraeus testified before congress and look, when the intelligence community handed the information over to the white house, yes, in fact, the words al-qaeda were in there, that we knew that it was terrorism and handed it to the white house and when susan rice went out on the sunday talk shows later, it vanished. it wasn't in there, and david petraeus saying, we don't know who made those edits. we didn't. we gave them that information. >> ainsley: well, the white house came out and said, the only edit that was made by the white house and also, by the state department was to change the word consulate to the word diplomatic facility. and since the facility in benghazi was not formally a consulate. we were appointed to represent their investment and the only edit made by the white house was at that factual edit how to refer to the facility. and the bottle of white out just spill across the pages? how does it happen?
7:03 am
the you have the intelligence community, general petraeus under oath as governor huckabee said yesterday, you don't lie about it, you're in front of congress, under oath and said yes in fact we said it was al-qaeda, gave this information to the white house and somewhere in between it vanishes? and representative gowdy saying somebody at the administration had to have taken it out. >> they knew before anyone else it was terrorism. why would the department of defense, cia, lie to the executive, lie to the commander-in-chief. remember the narrative was al-qaeda is on its heels. when the narrative becomes, al-qaeda's at the front door and they're about to kill four of our fellow americans, that doesn't bode well from an electoral standpoint. of course they knew and scrubbed out that information, so susan rice either didn't have it or didn't use it when she went on the television

talk shows on sunday. >> and the kids are old enough now and blame one another for things, this is what it seems like. >> dave: and particularly-- >> do you do it sm somebody did it because only two of you did tone of you did it. >> dave: the argument's gotten so lost in semantics, i'd still like to know why information about a spontaneous protest related to a youtube video why that was ever in talking points. petraeus said he knew on friday it was terrorism. why involve it at all. secondly, this is about the intelligence breakdown, why are four americans dead? let's not get bogged down in words. and why were the americans killed and-- and especially-- >> will it really ever surface? because you have one saying it's not terrorism, we didn't know it was terrorism. that was never in the talking points and then we have petraeus saying, it was in there. how can you-- >> well, to your point earlier, president obama saying, post-election and i
7:05 am
don't think the american people want to go through a massive sort of white -- sort of watergate style investigation on something like this. you know what? if there are answers and four americans are dead, and that certainly rises to a higher level of outrage than guys breaking into a headquarters during watergate. >> ainsley: if terrorists was part of the talking point we've got to find that paper work it has to be somewhere unless someone burned it or got rid of it. that person needs to come forward. as you said there are four americans dead as a result of this, it's important. >> dave: and hillary clinton expected to testify in september. maybe then we can get some closure on this, stay tuned to that. first, some headlines. >> ainsley: all right. now for your headlines, start with a fox news alert, overnight israel threatening to ramp up attacks on gaza after militants continue their assault on the country. hamas fired at least one missile at tel aviv overnight, but israeli officials say it
7:06 am
was intercepted by the iron dome. the israeli military responded with air strike, hitting two media centers at the gaza strip. at least five palestinians were killed and they'll launch more targeted and deadly attacks on rocket launching sites and hamas commanders if the search continues. the remaining crew member from the gulf oil rig explosion in the gulf of mexico. a body was found yesterday by divers. the four other workers were badly burned in that fire. the coast guard says no oil has leaked from the platform. that's a relief as there were some concerns that this would be another disaster just like the bp oil spill back two years ago. he planned to build a bomb, but didn't get fire. a doctor with ties to the occupy wall street movement busted after his girlfriend reportedly told cops about his team. police found weapons and a huge stash of chemicals used to make explosives inside his

7:09 am
eisenhower and the last page was left blank, we're told so there's a picture of a picture with president obama from this week's trip. and once it's wrapped up in thailand, it's off to burma. no sitting u.s. president has been to burma and their record on human rights is not great, but white house officials say they think that the burmese have taken some positive steps toward democracy lately and their position, the white house's position is that the best way to address any concerns about human rights violations is for the president, president obama to engage burmese leaders directly. and the final stop on the president's itinerary has been cambodian that's where he'll attend a summit with the association of southeast asian nations and while he's there, just like in burma, white house officials say the president will bring up cambodia's less than impressive record on human rights when he sees their prime minister. back to you in new york. >> clayton: much was made of course of china and asia during the run up to the
7:10 am
general election. and president obama speaking extensively about it, and the president speaking about it. is the economy going to be a focus, and international trade regions with in nation and an important trip the president scheduled right after the election. >> that's obviously going to be a big focus for sure at that southeast asian nation summit. once he gets to cambodia and look at a picture right now of the scene where the press conference is going to be. we're told that the way they do the press conferences there, they like to have an mc who calls on reporters, so it's going to be very orderly, and somebody will, we're told all the questions are going to be in english and that there will be an official from the thai government there who will call on two thai reporters, i believe, that the order was they want to do it. they want to call on a thai reporter and then an american reporter and then a thai reporter and then an american reporter. and we'll only have to wait a few minutes, really, to see how concerned the thai press, that part of the world is with
7:11 am
the economy, but obviously, president obama is on his mind even though he's halfway around the world, if he's asking the monks in a very light way, but in a funny way, if he could pray for the united states while we're working on the budget here. >> clayton: peter doocy live in d.c. >> once again, ladies and gentlemen, we will proceed in about two minutes. >> clayton: much more on the press conference here in a little bit and peter doocy live for us. and that i willed the oldest u.s. ally and the oldest treaty between our country and another country, going book to 1883 and he joked with the king, peter was just talking about. it's good to know that the ebe lex we ebe-- election went well and that the people had some confidence in me, joking with the meeting. >> dave: and you could imagine somewhere in the discussion, the discussion with china and u.s. and relates to the
7:12 am
economy and where thailand more with the united states and that's an issue moving forward as we try to figure out our debt situation. >> clayton: i love the photo album he gave the king. the king who born in massachusetts, the king was born in the united states, the king of thailand, he hands him this photo album that peter was talking about and the king has been in power since 1946 and met with all of these u.s. presidents and hands him a photo album with all of the presidents that he's met and his own photo with himself in there as well. >> ainsley: and the last page i guess was empty so he could take a picture with president obama on this trip, as well put the picture as well. >> clayton: we're awaiting the president to come to the podium and answer a few questions, interesting, a first international trip of course post election and it's always interesting to hear what the international press asks of our american
7:13 am
president. we we always get revealing questions as peter was talking about. the thailand press. >> dave: probably won't be the big warm kiss he got the other day from our press corps. when you think about that press conference he had here the other day, let's hope it's not at all like that where one reporter sitting in the front row, congratulated him on the win and a nice moment, a nice exchange back and forth. and maybe they'll ask the tough questions. >> ainsley: and you see jay carney sat at the front row the spokesman for the president. it's interesting he chose this as his first trip after the election. >> clayton: you have to imagine this was of course scheduled and planned and regardless what happened during the election, this obviously, this summit there when he, the president arrived was going to be top, top of importance and obviously, as we look at the way that american companies deal with international trade and asian trade, you look at a company like, technology, apple or
7:14 am
other big tech companies that large portion of their trade, a large portion of their sales are international and in asia and to the 30, 40% here in the united states, a whopping 60% are in the asian market and you think about that. it puts some things in perspective for the company. >> and do you think there are going to be critics in the wake of what we're seeing in israel and gaza, are there going to be critics, here look, we're in your second term, you're in bangkok, thailand, and you've never been to israel. he certainly would not go now, but he's never been to israel, but he's been in bangkok, thailand, and around the globe. >> ainsley: i think he realizes how important it is to support israel, he did speak with benjamin netanyahu twice on the phone over the last weekend and told him
7:15 am
three things that-- i was reading this morning, that the u.s. does support israel and the right to defends itself, and he regrets he told benjamin netanyahu i regret the lives lost on both sides in this. and they discussed options to deescalate the situation there. so i'm not sure what those options will be. >> clayton: and we spoke to the israeli consulate yesterday here on the show and we talked about this and he said, look, this is what happens, and we spoke to the consulate yesterday here on "fox & friends," he said that the united states has been given us the utmost of support. everything and governor huckabee corroborating that and that's the position they have to take right now. when terrorist missiles are pouring into the heart of jerusalem, what other position would the white house take other than to completely defend israel. >> dave: i think the position
7:16 am
of the president regarding egypt is the one we pay attention to. when you think about egypt right now one of our closest allies in the region, over a billion dollars a year in economic military aid and now the new president who replaced hosni hue barrack. will we stand by egypt if they are in fact standing by hamas, a known terrorist organization? that will be an interesting question for the president, probably not one today, but he'll face on returning here. >> ainsley: absolutely. all of this fighting leads to civilians being killed and fighting. and leland vittert, i wrote it down, 52 people dead as a result of the last day or so in gaza. these are innocent lives and people are being killed and it's just, there's so much unrest there with gaza and israel. >> clayton: and interesting, also, secretary of state clinton along with the president here in thailand as we're awaiting the president's press conference here in just a moment. and we're going to hear from the prime minister and president obama here at this
7:17 am
press conference as we look live inside this hall, where the two podiums are set up. the white house spokesperson jay carney coming in a short time ago, and as they fill in, as peter doocy was explaining the way in way the protocol will be laid out. certain questions, you'll get a number of questions from the thai press and the american press corps and answering back and forth, will be in english and the questions in english won't have to suffer through the translations. >> dave: finally seeing lines of life here in bangkok, and here comes the president. >> as follows, first of all, your excellency, prime minister of the king of thailand will say a few words and followed by the honorable barack obama, the president of the united states. and there will then be short session for questions and answers from the media and that will conclude the joint press conference, so, at this
7:18 am
juncture, ladies and gentlemen, may i invite the prime minister of the kingdom of thailand to say a few words. >> ladies and gentlemen of the media. let me start by once again welcoming president barack obama and his administration to thailand. thailand is the first country president obama choose to visit following the election less than two weeks ago. we recognize the significance of the president and we all thank you for being here today. president obama, it is the perfect occasion to launch the celebration of 180 anniversary of thailand next year. i thank president obama and secretary clinton for actively

7:25 am
treaty alliances which includes our alliance with thailand. thailand is america's oldest friend and nation. next year will mark 180 years of diplomatic relations. we've been treaty allies, committed to our common defense for nearly 60 years. our men and women in uniform have stood together and they've bled together. our business people and our entrepreneurs work together to create jobs for both of our peoples. our diplomates, development experts, researchers and student partners every day work together so that our citizens and the people across this region can live in peace and security and dignity. most recently the people of thailand have worked to restore and strengthen our own democracy and we're very admiring of the efforts that have been made. earlier today i had the great
7:26 am
honor of having an audience before his majesty the king, a leader of wisdom and dignity who embodies the unity of this nation. today i'm honored to stand beside the elected. in holding democracy, governance, rule of law and universal human rights all of which i know, madam prime minister that you believe in very deeply. when we met in bali last year, the prime minister and i discussed how we could deepen and broaden the partnership between our countries and with this visit i'm please that had we've agreed it a series of efforts that revitalize our alliance to meet the challenges and opportunities of our time. and first, we're deepening our security cooperation. our military's already trained and exercised together and we're already close partners in combatting terrorism and
7:27 am
narco traffic. now we have a broader vision for our alliance, improve the ability of our militaries to operate together. we'll help thai forces assume greater in the region from disaster relief to prevent piracy. i especially want to command thailand to prevent the spread of weapons of mass destruction and advance our shared vision after secure and peaceful asian pacific where the rights and responsibilities where the rights of all nations are upheld. second, we're taking new steps to expand trade and investment. the united states is already one of thailand's biggest trading partners and we're already one of the biggest investors in thailand. we believe we can do more and agreed to reconvene our trade and investment council to explore new ways our companies and entrepreneurs can do business together. we'll continue to work with our apec partners to reduce
7:28 am
barriers and move towards to seamless regional economy and work together as thailand begins to lay the groundwork for joining high standard trade agreements such as the trans pacific partnership. all this have will advance our vision of a region where trade is free and fair and all nations play by the rules. third, on this 50th anniversary of the peace corps in thailand we're moving forward to development of human dignity and focus on human health and developing a vaccine for hiv/aids and available especially along the mekong river. and i announced the steps that the united states is taking to confront the scourge of human trafficking and thailand is taking new steps to address this challenge including measures to better protect,
7:29 am
empower women and girls and i'm very pleased to see the leadership as the prime minister has taken on what i think we all agree is a very important issue. and given thailand's role as an emerging donor country, i'm pleased that our two nations are working for development in other countries, fighting malaria along the thai border and welcome the leadership that thailand has taken in protecting wild life around the world. and it's something that thailand should be very proud of. and finally, we discussed a range of regional challenges. thailand has thwarted the cause of democracy in burma, protecting dissidents, hosting refugees and promoting reform and i very much appreciate the prime minister's insights as i prepare to visit burma tomorrow. as a founding member, thailand will play an important role in our meetings in cambodia and i especially want to thank our
7:30 am
thai friends for being supportive of our role in the east asia summit the premier role for discussing regional challenges including maritime security so once again, madam prime minister, i want to thank you for your hospitality and your partnership. because of the progress we've made today i think we put the u.s.-thai alliance or even firmer footing for years to come and tonight i look forward to celebrating the bonds of friendship between our peoples and enjoying some thai food which is one of my favorites, so thank you very mu much. >> thank you very much, mr. president and now we'll take a few questions from the floor. i would ask, if i have not already mentioned so, to ask you to identify your name and affiliation, and we have about four questions. and so the first question is to the thai media, so have the first question, please. >> i am representing local
7:31 am
newspaper here in thailand. the question to both of you, mr. president and mrs. prime minister. you talked about democracy and my question is this: are you both satisfied with how democracy in this democracy now in thailand i'm talking about the responsibility for... you still have the law (inaudible) and have political prisoners and human right abuse. in your opinion i mean, how do you call this. and mr. president, which thai dish is your favorite again, could you be more specific? thank you. >> the prime minister may answer the question first.
7:32 am
>> let me answer the question on democracy today. i think the definition of the stability because democracy we believe is a fundamental of growth in the future so the definition to go with that, that region is that the reconciliation, but for thailand, i think we will speak with the principle of true democracy by using the process and make sure that all the things will be equal and fair and in thailand, also, we would like to see the regional reconciliation and through our position, with the passion and with the peaceful way, the democracy way will be the place to solve the problem, thank you. >> well, let me just say, first of all, that, you know,
7:33 am
democracy is not something that is stat static, it's sometg we have to constantly work on. the united states has the oldest democracy in the world, but we constantly have to, as citizens, work to make sure that it is working to include everybody, to make sure that the freedoms that are in our constitution, tfreedom of speech, the freedom of worship that those are practiced and observed. so the work of democracy never stops and i think that what you're seeing here in thailand is a democratically elected prime minister who is committed to democracy, committed to rule of law, committed to freedom of speech
7:34 am
and press and assembly, but obviously what's true in thailand, as is true in america, is that all citizens have to remain vigilant and there's almost, there's always improvements to be made and i very much congratulate the prime minister on her commitment to democracy and i know that many of the reforms that she continues to be interested in are ones that will strengthen democracy even further in thailand and will serve as a good example for the region as a whole. in terms of thai cuisine, i like it all and i've looked over the menu for this evening's dinner and it looks very good, which is good because i'm also very hungry, so, but i think i saved my appetite and looking forward to having some authentic thai food. >> thank you very much. the second question comes from the u.s. media.
7:35 am
i'd like to call on "the washington post," please. >> thank you very much. madam prime minister, thank you for hosting us with the american media as well as the president's delegation. mr. president, you'll make history as being the first president to be burma, and premature given the violence that left hundreds dead and up to a hundred thousand displaced this that country and your director of human rights said at that people are living in fear and terror, why are you moving so quickly to endorse the burmese leadership and endorse them with personal visit and give us the given the setbacks in the middle east and why are you-- and madam prime minister, as a neighbor, do you think that
7:36 am
the president's doing enough to protect the human rights there and president obama's visit is premature or appropriately timed, thank you. >> well, first of all, i think it's important to recognize, david, this is not an endorsement of the burmese government. this is an acknowledgment that there's a process underway inside that country that even a year and a half, two years ago nobody foresaw. the president is taking steps that move us in a better direction. you have an elected member of parliament. you've seen political prisoners released. there is an articulated
7:37 am
commitment to further political reform. but i don't think anybody's under any illusion that burma has arrived, that they're where they need to be. on the other hand, if we waited to engage until they had achieved a perfect democracy, my suspicion is we'd be waiting an awful long time and one of the goals of this trip is to highlight the progress that has been made, but also, to give voice to the much greater progress that needs to be made in the future. so, when i address the burmese public as the first president who's ever visited that country, what they'll hear from me is that we congratulate them on having opened the door to a country that respects human rights and respects political freedom and
7:38 am
it is saying that it's committed towards a more democratic government, but what you'll also hear is that the country has a long way to go and you know, i'm not somebody who thinks that the united states should just stand on the sidelines, and not want to get its hands dirty, but there's an opportunity for us to encourage the better impulses inside a country. and in part, i'm taking my guidelines r guidance from what sue-chi who knows quite a bit about repression in burma sees as the best means to continue the development and
7:39 am
progress there. when she visited me in the oval office she was very encouraging about the process of a visit. and one thing we've learned in countries around the world is that change can happen very fast if a spotlight is shown shone on what's going on in the country and the people there start believing their voices are heard around the world and one thing we can do as an international community is make sure that the people of burma know we're paying attention to them, we're listening to them. we care about them and this visit allows me to do that in a fairly dramatic fashion, but we understand there is he' going to be a work in progress and what we've done is calibrate our concrete policies and responses based on the understanding at that more work needs to be done and if we see back sliding and slipping, then we're in a position to respond
7:40 am
appropriately, but my hope is that we will continue on a positive track and hopefully nigh visit will be able to encourage that. >> for myself on the situation, i think now we can see that from my observation and also, i have several chance see a lot of progress on the political reform, and i think from the-- we believe that the potential of and-- stability of democracy. because people in the region believe that democracy will be the way for the country to be free and fair and also, that's why we believe this is the right destination.
7:41 am
so in the case of myanmar, thailand, as our neighbor country, so we want to help our neighbor and truly we want to see people of myanmar to have a better life. to have a better education, to have better development. i don't think we can be able to lift up the profile and especially on the year 2015 will be the year of the committees so it will be necessary for us to work towards myanmar to make sure that the political reform will come in the right, but for us alone, i think we need the support from international to keep -- so i think this is important for countries to
7:42 am
work with them, helping them and make sure that they bring the true democracy in terms of the real democracy that the international law cross the gap and make sure that people will have better life and better jobs. thank you. >> thank you very much, mr. president and madam prime minister. the third question goes to the thai media, please state your question. >> thank you madam prime minister and mr. president. from thai public broadcasting service. first question i'd like to ask mr. president, what are your priorities in your new asian policy and where does thailand fit in that policy and to madam prime minister. what is the plan of the thai government in pursuing with the u.s. thank you.
7:43 am
>> well, when i announced our desire to pivot and focus on the asian pacific region, in part it was in response to a decade in which we understandably as a country have been focused on issues of terrorism, the situation in iraq and afghanistan and, you know, as a consequence, i think, we had not had the same kind of presence in the region that is growing faster, developing faster than anyplace else in the world and we, historically, have been an asian pacific power and i wanted to make sure that all our friends and partners throughout the region understood that we see this as a central region for our goals and our prosperity. and it's not one that we can
7:44 am
neglect. so, in terms of my priorities, number one, expanding trade and investment. we believe more jobs for our countries and we have a strong trade relationship with a country like thailand and we believe we can do more. and the trade investment council that we've set up will further explore ways in which we can synchronize our economies so that entrepreneurs and business people who want to trade, want to produce products, want to take advantage of opportunities in both countries will have an easier time doing so. a second property is
7:45 am
maintaining the stability that allows for prosperity and that means that our security arrangements in the region are extremely important. once again, thailand is a central part that have, as our oldest treaty ally in asia. one that has not only worked with us here regionally, but also does outstanding work performing peace keeping activities around the world. and i want to make sure that we continue to strengthen those relationships, not only for the purposes of dealing with potential security threats, but also, humanitarian responses, you know, we've seen in this region a number of devastating natural disasters and when we have strong cooperation and training between our countries, then we're in a
7:46 am
stronger position to respond quickly and thailand, i think, having experienced its own floods understands the importance of this. a third area that's important is human development. we've already discussed how important it is for us to work together on issues of human trafficking and forced labor. we all believe that our countries will prosper if children are getting a good education, if public health systems are set up to deal with issues like hiv/aids or drug resistent malaria. those are all issues where countries working together can do more than countries working by themselves. and so scientific exchanges, medical exchanges, working together on development issues, all that becomes very important and because
7:47 am
thailand, i think, is more successful economically than some of its neighbors, it's now in a position to be a donor country and for us to be able to partner with thailand, for example, the u.s. working with the thailand, the thai development agency to help people in the mekong river area develop and be able to prosper, to have greater food security, to be able with the public mehealth challenges that's an outstanding policy for us and finally our goal in the region is make sure that there's an international or a regional architecture through mechanisms like the u.s. dialog or the east asia summit that allows us to work through tensions, conflicts,
7:48 am
differences in a constructive way. in way that is -- allows us to resolve these differences in a peaceful and orderly fashion and i think that thailand's leadership in those institutions have been extraordinarily important. so, we expect to work with all the countries in the region, but obviously the cornerstone of our work in asia begins with our alliances and the longstanding friendship between our two countries make this a very appropriate place for me to stop in my first trip after my reelection. >> helping to fight off the tpp, one thing that we, on the economic growth in the future,
7:49 am
i think we need more goals and the way our goals -- the free market and i think all the other countries who have been going off the economic and the economy, saw this is very important for the country for the future and stability of the economic growth will be to work on fair and also free markets. so that's why thailand thought that tpp is very important for the future, but of course, i think in the beginning of course the concern of the country or readiness of the country will be another issue we can work parallelly by the way, community building and after that, i think we can work along and understand and sometimes the benefits will be
7:50 am
better to innovate all other countries. so it means to have more markets, to have market to work, so that's why we think it's important, but along the way we can work with. >> thank you very much. the last question goes to bloomberg news, please. >> thank you. i'm margaret with bloomberg news. mr. president, you're hereof course at that talk about asia, but much of the word's attention and yours has also been diverted back to the middle east and now the situation in gaza. your calling for deescalation of violence between the palestinians and israelis. do you believe that movement of israeli ground troops into gaza will be escalation are you concerned that the arab spring at least in the near term made matters worse and
7:51 am
pivot to asian. and madam prime minister, you may know the president's first visit today was to the royal monastery where he told the monk he'll need a lot of prayer to help the u.s. avoid a fiscal cliff, sort of a joke kind of, right? what can emerging democracy ins asia take away from how difficult it's been for the president to get congress to agree to budget negotiations with him and why shouldn't china's system of government look more appealing in this region when you confront a situation like this in the u.s.? thank you. >> well, let me start with gaza. let's understand what the precipitating event was that's causing the current crisis and that was an ever escalating number of missiles that were landing, not just in israeli
7:52 am
territory, but in areas that are populated and there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. so, we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes. and work places and potentially killing civilians. and we will continue to support israel's right to defend itself. now, what is also true is that we are actively working of with all the parties in the region to see if we can end those missiles being fired without further escalation of violence in the region and so i've had several conversations
7:53 am
with prime minister netanyahu. i've had several conversations with president morsi of egypt. i've spoken to the prime minister of turkey who was visiting egypt right in the midst of what was happening in gaza. and my message to all of them was that israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired into its territory. if that can be accomplished without a ramping up of military activity in gaza, that's preferable. that's not just preferable for the people of gaza, it's also preferable for israelis. because if the israeli troops are in gaza they're at much more risk of incurring fatalities or being wounded. we're going to have to see what kind of progress we can make in the next 24, 36, 48
7:54 am
hours. but what i said to president morsi and prime minister is that those who champion the cause of the palestinians should recognize that if we see a further escalation of situation in gaza, then the likelihood of us getting back on any kind of peace track that leads to a two state solution is going be to be pushed off way into the future. and you know, so, if we're serious about wanting to resolve this situation and create a genuine peace process, it starts with no more missiles fired into israel's territory and that then gives us the space to try to deal with these
7:55 am
longstanding conflicts that exist. in terms of the arab spring, let's just remember that the exact same situation arose just a couple of years ago before the arab spring. so, i don't think anybody would suggest somehow that it's unique to democratization in the region that there's a conflict between the israelis and the palestinians. it's been going on for several decades now. i do think that as egyptians, tunisians, others have more of a voice in their government, it becomes more important for all the players, including the united states to speak directly to those populations
7:56 am
and to deliver a message that peace is preferable to war, that this is an issue that can be resolved if parties are willing to sit down and negotiate directly. that violence is not an answer and that there are no shortcuts to the hard work of trying to bring about, what i think is a best option two states side by side in peace and security. and that, that's the message that you can't just direct at a single figure in these arab countries. now you've got to be able to deliver that message across the board. and that, that will probably be a little bit harder. but the truth is that for any peace that was going to last, that was going to be necessary anyway. and last point, i know it wasn't directed at me, it was directed to the prime minister, but i'm going to make this point. first of all, i always believe in prayer, and i--
7:57 am
i believe in prayer when i go to church back home and if a buddhist monk is wishing me well, i'm going to take whatever good vibes he can give me, to try to deal with some challenges back home. i'm confident that we can get our fiscal situation dealt with. and i think it's important to recognize that, yeah, democracy a little messier than alternative systems of government, but that's because democracy allows everybody to have a voice and that system of government lasts and it's legitimate and when agreements are finally struck you know that nobody's being left out of the conversation and that's the reason for our stability and our prosperity.
7:58 am
and the notion somehow that you can take shortcuts and avoid democracy and that that somehow is going be to be the mechanism whereby you deliver economic growth i think is absolutely false, i think over time when you look at the most prosperous nations on this earth, they are the ones in which every individual, every citizen feels like if they put in the effort, if they a're working hard that those efforts bear fruit. that a government respects them and observes rule of law and doesn't take their property without due process and they don't have to pay a bribe to start a business or get a telephone installed. and you know, it's worked for us for over 200 years now. i think it's going to work for thailand, it's going to work for this entire region and the the alternative, i think, is a
7:59 am
false hope that over time i think erodes and collapses under the weight of people who's aspirations are not being met. you i know you didn't direct that question to me, but i just wanted to make sure the prime minister didn't get put on the spot without me having something to say about that. all right? >> and my answer i think talk about the basics of the economic growth, i think to believe that said that the democracy will be the fundamental. but this is the one way of basic fundamental because as you have stability in the political. so it will be the stability of economy. but anyway, in the economy, will be have to understand the cause and root cause of the problem, the right way to
8:00 am
solve the problem and also, that as far as you work with this principle of the financial, but along the way-- the economy because i think you have any place -- we find the right place and so-- thank you. >> thank you very much ladies and gentlemen, a final program note the joint press statement in english and unofficial translation in thai will be available shortly. thank you mr. president, thank you madam prime minister and please be seated. >> clayton: there's the president, president obama and the prime minister of thailand press conference wrapping up, 40, 45 minutes or so touched on everything from thai food. >> dave: yeah. >> clayton: to what's going on in israel. that question of course came
8:01 am
up and also, human rights and abuse ins and around the asian region as well. >> dave: two observationses is the relative attractiveness of the prime minister of thailand op twitter and the thai food. >> ainsley: and she's very smart and the president complimented her english. >> clayton: and she spoke first in english, and president said i'm not going to try thai. and a take away wendell from the press conference, a lot of topics to be covered this morning. >> reporter: well, this is the first stop of a three-nation trip built around the east asian summit in cambodia. the showcase the stop in burma, the next stop, mr. obama will be the first president to visit. the pivot to the asian pacific region and after focusing on the war against terror, we've
8:02 am
lost focus on trade in this region and china it make strategic and diplomatic advances here in this region. and there are critics who say he really shouldn't be visiting any of the three countries that he's going to, mike green of the center for strategic and international studies says he's visiting the three troubled children of the so-called pivot. burma gets the most attention, and the president will the first u.s. president to visit there and the country holding hundreds of political prisoners, but the president says he's not an endorsement, not endorsing the burmese government he's acknowledging the process is underway to move in a better direction. like wise cambodia may be worse in human rights than burma and holding hundreds of political prisoners and that situation actually getting worse the past decade or so, but the president is going
8:03 am
there to attend the east asian summit and even in thailand the president says that democracy is not static you constantly have to work on it and edge couraged the government here, six years ago, there was a coup. and the man arcist upset at the united states and the people involved in the coup upset at the united states for not choosing sides. and the president on a three nation trip to see the troubled children of the pivot, if you will. and all of them have human rights problems and the president has to be diplomatic. >> dave: thank you. now it's eight o'clock there, eight o'clock p.m. there. and the eight o'clock a.m. here. and the president eating thai food. and the israel, their right to defend themselves any nation in the world would do exactly
8:04 am
what riz is doing, he was ready for that question, appeared he wanted that question. >> ainsley: now for the rest of the headlines this morning, start with a fox news alert. you heard the president say that israel has a right to defend itself, as it dave. and overnight israel threatening to ramp up attacks on gaza after militants continued their assault on the country. >> look at that, hamas firing at least one missile and israelis say it was intercepted by their iron dome. the israeli saying at least five palestinians were killed. and israel will launch more target and deadly attacks on rocket launching sites and hamas commanders if it continues. and the search for the missing crew member from the rig in

8:07 am
weather, from accu-weather, henry, welcome to the show. whys with a this storm shaping up to be what many people call the storm of the century, what were you able to see happening that sort of gave you pause from the beginning. >> i think it was the whole overall weather pattern shaping up especially in the atlantic ocean where you had systems na were block sandy's advancement to the north atlantic and sandy had nowhere to go, but the jersey coast and seven days in advance of sandy coming. our rick reichmuth our meteorologist here, it was well down past of florida and cuba and saying it's heading for us, you're seeing the super charged areas around the world and you were able though to monitor it, using incredible technology and think back in history what we had with the galveston hurricane that devastated the port of galveston in early
8:08 am
1900 and relying on telegrams from cuba and dispatches. that's all we had to work with. >> yeah, you know, and he saw that storm coming as well and saw what was happening in the atmosphere as it was approaching galveston and one of the things that i remember back with andrew connelling into florida and we just had the doppler radar system put in place, and i could remember that morning seeing the winds on that radar going, oh, no, homestead is going to be devastated because of wind were just so incredible and that was really the first time we saw it using the doppler radar system. >> clayton: when you saw it was headed for new jersey, what did you think? >> basically i said the coastline was going to be changed forever. there's no doubt about it in my mind. when a storm like this was going to make a left turn toward the coast coming from the southeast we saw waves up to 39 feet and just the funneling effect of the ocean going toward the coast line we knew the coastline was going to be changed and devastated flooding into the new york
8:09 am
city area and really, you know, there's a point where you get you go from excitement of the storm to just dread. and you just know that people are going to be killed. we know that houses are going to be destroyed forever, the coastline is going to be changed and by sunday and monday that dread hit us hard. >> clayton: you know, as the governors here and mayors dealing with this, look, we weren't supposed to have 100 year storms, two years in a row and that's the new reality. and as all of these experts have come together the past few weeks, look, the climate has changed and global sea waters have changed dramatically and seeing the changes. is this the new normal that we can expect now on the east coast, these types of massive storms and the change in the atmosphere? >> we don't know yet. we don't know whether that's part of the climate change or not, but we do know that the big storms are hang and we've had the blizzard of 2010 in new york city and we've seirene, and flooding in pennsylvania.
8:10 am
so the big storms are happening. >> what can we expect, if i'm the lay person and i don't know the technical details of weather and i'm fascinated by the stuff. watching the special airing tonight on the discovery channel. what can i take away from this? >> your friends are going to learn why sandy was so big and the second thing to see, you'll see tremendous video about what sandy caused along the coast and when i saw some of the previews of it, i was just floored at some of the damage that sandy did, seeing water levels up through the second floor of houses and just everything, this storm did. it's still today, i don't know, i'm at a loss for word sometimes when i see the damage and we're going to be studying this storm probably for the next two decades to understand it. probably the benchmark storm from the eastern seaboard in terms of looking at the infrastructure of our cities and the coast line. >> yeah, changing forever now. tonight at 9 people on the discovery channel, mega storm premiers, henry, thank you for joining us, appreciate it. >> coming up on the show the

8:15 am
get to the bottom of it. >> ainsley: the host of fox news sunday, mr. chris wallace, how are you. >> dave: hello, sir. >> i'm great, guys, how are you. >> ainsley: we're great. what do you make of all of this, who is true? who is being, you know, who is correct. >> clayton: where is the missing phrase, chris. is it hidden in the washington bureau and who took it? >> let me check under here. no, it's not here. i don't know. i guess at this point until proven otherwise you've got to take people at their word and reportedly david petraeus when he testified behind closed doors said the talk about al-qaeda was taken out and one of the reasons it was taken out was because they didn't want to tip-off the specific groups that they were targeting, like ansar al sharia. and islamic agrab, one they were targeting them and two intercepting some of their communications they didn't want to blow the intelligence that they had pipelines into
8:16 am
what they were saying, now, it may turn out not to be true, but at this point until proven otherwise, i think you've got to take them at their word and you do have this top official, ben rhodes, and the national security council who is saying the only edit that the white house made to the talking points that it originally called it a consulate and for diplomatic reasons it wasn't officially that, it was a diplomatic facility and changed that one phrase for, you know, diplomatic reasons, but other than that that they changed nothing that would have had impact on the-- >> can we take them at their word, too then. >> say again. >> ainsley: should we take them for their word, too, who do you believe? >> i'd say unless you've got evidence to the contrary. >> dave: right. and that will come up on the show. now, some interesting guests you have, governor scott walker and governor bobby jindal who both side they would not set up their own exchanges regarding obamacare and that should be interesting to discuss with them. chris, what does that do for a
8:17 am
state? i mean, now the federal government comes in and sets up its own health care exchange for them. why do these two governors, in addition to rick perry and who else. >> a bunch of other states. >> dave: why do they do that and say no we won't set them up. >> they say you're giving us the responsibility, but you're not giving us all the funding and what they worry is that they're going to set up these exchanges which cost money and then the feds are, they're going to support them in the beginning, but maybe they'll go out and get an unfunded mandate in effect where they're left holding the bag and they, their taxpayers and their states have to pay for it. so, instead they're saying we're not really going to have that much control over it anyway, even if we set it up. let's let the feds just come in and the exchanges and these are basically places where uninsured people will be able to go in and to comparison shop and look and say, well, here is this policy, here is
8:18 am
this policy. what will they give me, how much would they cost, these various exchanges and saying we're going to let the feds do it, because we don't want to be left holding the bag for taxpayers. >> clayton: we can imagine the fiscal cliff will come up on your show. >> have you seen my notes? >> i have. they sent them to me early so i could-- >> a 40 minutes press conference from thailand we looked into your entire show. >> clayton: no, but seriously, the fiscal cliff obviously on the top of the agenda and what washington is facing here before we head into the holiday break. and you'll be tackling that and so much more on fox news sunday this morning. the make sure to check it out. if we don't see you, have a happy thanksgiving. >> ainsley: and chris, we didn't alter your talking points even though we've been going over them. >> clayton: we tried and took out some friezs. >> you did. >> clayton: we'll send them back to you. >> i appreciate that. >> ainsley: thank you, chris. >> dave: and governor scott walker and bobby jindal and an interesting piece on the future of the republican

9:07 am
one big headline and what you heard, the white house responding now. ben rhodes responding for the white house saying we didn't edit anything. the only thing edited was the name from consulate to facility. that's the bottom line. there was no al-qaeda removed. what do you make of this? >> first off when susan rice -- i'm quoting, the best information is what she should she put on sunday is opposite of what general petraeus is, director of c.i.a. gave the administration. jim clapper testified saying he didn't change it either. we -- all roads lead to the white house. these are highly paid, 150 to $180,000 a year executives not knowing how somehow information got switched between the c.i.a. and white house. this is not a order form for girl scout cookies in the neighborhood. this is a freaking national intelligence and the idea someone lost track -- we don't
9:08 am
know where it came from, not possible. everything was measured, weighed and all roads lead back to i believe the national security council or above that. >> i'm not as concerned about who changed it from al-qaeda to extremists. what i can't figure out is general petraeus friday said i knew it was terrorism within 24 hours. we in the c.i.a. knew. so what happened between the fact he knew 24 hours after and the fact that somehow in these talking points became a spontaneous protest related to a youtube video. that's what i don't understand. >> that's the problem. i was on "fox & friends" with you guys and both crews within 48 hours saying was a a terrorist attack. this was not an intelligence failure. not remotely. not before the attack, not the day of the attack, not after. this is a policy failure. people failed to act before the attack. people failed to act during the attack and afterwards --
9:09 am

it was the storm that rocked the east coast and residents on long island are still reeling from hurricane sandy as hundreds of folks and families are still in the dark. long island power authority faced mounting criticism for their slow response. the embattled coo, michael hervey, stepped down. our next guest served in the aftermath of hurricane katrina and he says they have a lot to learn. joining us, paul t. conway. good morning, paul. >> good morning, how are you? >> i'm great. a lot of folks on long island are not okay this morning.
9:16 am
thousands are still without power. it will be three weeks this tuesday. what exactly could they have done differently? >> i think you hit on the first point, the most important. we're five days from thanksgiving and for the tens of thousands in new york without power our prayers are with them. i would tell folks the most important players on the ground are nongovernment agencies, catholic charts, red cross, team rubicon trying to get lives restore. lipa, after katrina there was extensive national discussion at the state and federal level. the federal government through dhs, you have state governors and local governments trying to apply the lessons of katrina. for lipa, it's unforgivable. last year they had a similar problem and have not applied the principles of preparedness and did not anticipate in advance
9:17 am
having utility poles and probably most alarmingly they did not replace a computer system that's out of date that in 2006 they were told was a failure in terms of trying to identify power outages as well as able to move the workforce around to deal with power outages as they were happening. inexcusable. >> absolutely. i was on long island last weekend, people were without power, little kids and elderly people without heat. they said we've done everything we're supposed to do, why aren't they taking care of us. you're saying they didn't learn the lesson and they knew days in advance the storm was coming. >> bottom line, if you're be a elected official today in government or head of a utility in the private sector, the strength of dealing with natural or man made disaster after 9/11
9:18 am
or katrina comes -- you will not be successful. in the case of lipa that's a state agency and the governor of new york appoints the overseeing body. there were 15 appointees, seven vacancies. that's the governor of new york. he initiated an investigation and the attorney general has as well and issued subpoenas. at the end of the day for people of new york without power, they should be asking questions and the media has got to stay on this. fox has done a fantastic job but the only pressure that will be brought to bear on behalf of the folks on the ground will come from the media and local elected officials fed up with the service they've gotten. >> if we didn't learn after katrina, we will after sandy. thank you for being with us. out of all of superstorm sandy's devastation we have a

9:46 am
war. we arrived here where these rockets landed just a couple of minutes afterwards. it was near our hotel where this happened. another ten or 15 feet and that rocket would have been inside the house. the problem for the israelis is the iron dome has been so effective in intercepting missiles, they have to make sure people around here take cover when these air raid sirens go off. we're heading right now from one location to another. you probably just heard the iron dome go off. a fellow is taking cover there which is about the best thing you can do in open areas. the key during one of these sirens is to try to find a place to lay down and tuck in somewhere like this rock. this is a fact of life. from the time the sirens go off to the time you need to be down is 20 or 30 seconds. this shows the power of these rockets through the roof of this apartment building, through this next floor with the steal

9:52 am
he joins us from homestead, mime speedway. great to see you, man. >> good morning, guys. thanks for having me on. >> what puts things in perspective for you and how important our men and women in uniform are and the sacrifice they make? >> our armed forces do a great deal for all of us that live in america. when they come back and their lives have changed forever with some of the wounds, mentally as well as physically that they have, it's an honor to go see them, whether it's at bethesda or walter reed or the v.a.'s. some of our passing from vietnam and world war ii, to talk with them, share some stories and to share that moment with them. it's a bridge that both of us get to cross and we can relate to one another on some of our stories. they get inspired by someone coming to see them. i get inspired by what they have
9:53 am
done for our country and given up of their life. >> many people are surprised when they see how emotional you get. are there two sides to kurt busch? >> well, there's two sides to every story. i'm one that pours a lot of ten tenacity into my racing. i want to go for the win. a lot of times i'm on the edge and it becomes controversial or there's an moment where there's an opinion that isn't the definition. this show was a great way to show i'm not a nonconformist. i do things my way but over time i'm accumulated a lot of wins and shared a lot of moments with great teams and this show puts that softer side to things on, hey, everybody's i'm and we put our pants on the same way. >> i live on the edge with you, so i totally understand. the documentary reairs thursday the 26th. 8:00 a.m. eastern time on the speed channel. today, though, you are at
9:54 am
homestead speedway in miami. brad kozlowski going for the championship, the first title for penske racing, huge for roger and brad. he has a 20-point lead and only has to finish in the top 156789 is there any way he does not take home the title today? >> well, anything can happen and there's these tense moments that lead into the finale. your transmission with break on lap two or your wheel can come apart and you'll struggle the rest of the day to build up that position but brad's going to start up front, hopefully have a smooth day and i wish nothing but the best for penske racing and miller lite team and dodge. i worked with those guys many years and had things go good and things go bad but it's great to see them pull it together and we're rooting for them to beat jimmy johnson but at the same time, she's johnson with --

9:56 am
squeaky clean. you can't have bumps, bruises, or black eye and have the sponsor happy. 20, 30 years ago, budgets were less, drivers had no personality. there was less consequences when we got out of line but it's just the fab of america and the world is changing on how politically correct we need to be. nascar can still put on an entertaining show within reason and still have guys going back and forth and not have the big corporate punishments. gordon stepped out of his box and showed his muscle and you know, the way that some guys get away with it and do it, gordon had a lot of equity in the sport. >> i loved it as well. the documentary reairs on speed november 26 at 8:00 a.m.yo nor "fox & friends" in two minutes. moment considering any broth but swanson?
