9:32 am
79 leonardtown. dulles 77. 75 up in hagerstown. let me mention the heat. if you'll be outside for any period of time this afternoon bring water. we'll be in the low 90s. yeah, little bit of cloudiness early. watched that break up and right now we're looking at generally sunny skies. as we look into the afternoon hours, we have a what we call lee to of in place that allow clouds to build along it after we get the daytime heating. we'll build clouds around here and the possibility that there could be a few showers and storms. also concerned this little complex of thunderstorm activity off to the north and west a few of these clouds may spill into our region. so the bottom line is it will be kind of 5050. the good news is, the actual eclipse from beginning to end about three hours. i think there will be sunny breaks in there. there's our future cast at 3:00 o'clock. notice it's trying to fire up showers where we don't want them right along 95. parts of the area southern maryland, just out to the west of d.c. in the clear. again, future cast is not so good that it's able to pinpoint exactly where the cloud cover is going to be later today. so it's certainly possible inside the beltway we could

periods of sunshine here right when we want it. there we are at 5:00 o'clock a few more showers and storms. if you'll be out again take your umbrella too you may see a shower pop up here we'll have threat of a shower through 9:00 o'clock and clear it out. tomorrow will be hot, mid 90s i mentioned that change in air mass. i mean the real deal change in air mass temps in the upper 70s and low 80s by the end of the week with overnight lows in the low 60s here in the city and low humidity. going to feel like fall around here the first hint of fall by this weekend. all right. guys, fingers crossed right now we got sunshine. 91 we'll continue to give you minute by minute updates in the 10:00 o'clock hour. >> hoping for the best. >> me, too. >> thanks, tuck. >> 9:33 is the time. he's a local chef who headed to hollywood and got famous there, too. but now, he's back and he's helping us get ready for the eclipse. err ren is out in the fox lot with the details. erin. >> that's right, wisdom. chef brian is from pet worth he made a big out on the west co coast. he just opened chef brian's comfort kitchen it's open for business today and you can enjoy

10:12 am
total eclipse when we won't experience around this area. >> this is graphic you can use as the doctor that you are to kind of let us know what could happen. obviously usually sun is up here. we'll put the sun over here directly into the eye. what would could happen here. >> the rays are coming in through this way. they enter the kearn ya through the lense this is the area of the eye that is damaged. this is the retina. and the retina has no pain receptors. so, you know, even though it's so bright and getting burnt the retina can't even feel that there's no pain receptor that. the damage is happening and you don't even know. that's why you don't feel like you need to look away. even though the retina is being burned. so kids, old people, basically the ones that are danger for doing this. >> we need to worry about the most. we're saying typically our brain would say, look away but you're saying if that damage happens, you might not realize that at that point. >> exactly. now clue it's happening. you won't have a clue until the next day. you can still have good vision even though your retina burnt. may not notice it for years. >> it might be the kind of thing down the road we could s
10:13 am
damage to happen? are we talking a flash or -- >> nom it's not a flash. >> a period of time. >> you can look at the sun for a couple seconds that's okay but the point is don't look at the sun it's dangerous no matter what. >> you know, when is the damage permanent? we don't know. i mean it can happen within seconds. but it's quick. it's never safe to look at the sun period. >> so all these questions all this concern about putting the special glasses on are people setting up eye appointments now is there a residual effect here people are concerned about their eyes. >> not yet. if you look at the sun and there's damage you could go see your eye doctor. >> we definitely want to be serious about it, and take all the precautions. now, if somebody didn't get the glasses and like maureen said obviously people waiting in line early this morning. >> sure. it's a need but not everybody is going to have them. is there a way to still enjoy the spectacle without directly looking at it? >> yeah go inside and watch your tv. >> there you go. that's the best way to do it keep it on on fox5. >> will you go.
10:14 am
summer day. if we're in the pool outside we can gaze in the area of the sun without look directly at it or is that not a good idea. >> those rays are hall full no matter what. during the normal days you should be wearing your sunglasses that block uva. uvb. this is important because our brain doesn't tell to us look away because a lot of the rays are getting blocked. >> most days we instinctively look away from the sun. >> exactly. >> people will be wanting to look today. >> save travels. >> thanks so much. >> don't pull off on the side of the highway and take pictures while you're driving today. and be safe out there. >> you got it. >> maureen, let me know what you want for them. >> my birthday is a couple months away. can we make it an early birthday gift? >> let me get on the phone with the boss. i'll seaway says. >> work deal, steve. >> thanks. listen they are a hollywood power couple tackling serious political issue in brand new book. comcoming up later actress anne archer and author terry jastrow will join us live in the loft. >> new music from taylor swift on the way. that's the big question. the clues that could be hiding on our social

10:32 am
bin laden perp 28ed those crimes there wasn't a huge amount of passion and sympathy for the united states. he had legal justification in the world did george w many bush to get osama bin laden and bring him to justice. after more than a year of not having done it with all the power and intelligence of the us military, he began to shift the dialogue away from osama bin laden and everybody knew was in afghanistan and towards is a doom hussein saying there was some kind of lynn catch between saddam hussein and the 9/left terrorists which there was not. >> it's a fiction in term of the scenario but it's based on lot of fact. and so as you're writing this, you decide to write this book, you have to think, okay, i'm probably going to get a little backlash from this, and when he came to you, anne and said i have great idea about book, what did you think? >> i lost sleep for couple of months. >> um-hmm. >> you

governance is not about popularity it's doing the will of the people. when our elected officials go way towards a across the world against countries that do not represent a clear and present danger, then they're misusing our military and misusing our nation's treasury. >> when you wrote this book, did you ever think it would be as timely as it is as we sit here today we wait for our current president to address the nation tonight about our -- his plan in terms of where we stand in afghanistan and in south asia? >> yes. i think one of the principal concepts here is that war is terrible. war is tragic. and we should do everything possible do sort out our problems before resorting to war. i love my country. but -- non one would ever say that all wars are unnecessary because that of course wouldn't be true. world war one. world war ii the korean war but some wars may, many wars are unnecessary and could have been avoided. vietna

it was a terrible war. iraq war. the more you scratch into the iraq war, the lessens cybill and lelegitimate it seems to be. if we as citizens allow such wars to happen, then we're doomed in the future for more such wars. and i believe that the only defense against it is an aware and engaged citizenry. think of what stopped the vietnam war. it was protesters in the street. so i just want people to be become aware of these issues. monitor what our elected officials are doing and have a conversation about it before the war starts and not dialogue afterwards. >> i want to ask a couple of questions in terms of you working together as team. so as he's writing it at home i'm assume you write at hem. >> i do. >> you write at home. do you read along the way? >> not along the way. when he finish his first draft, he had me read it. um, but this -- this piece of work is really his own. yeah, i have very strong feelings about human rights.
10:36 am
>> and those kinds of issues. um, i felt what i did say to him and he did deliver this, is that you need to tell a balanced story. you into he had to tell both sides of the story. so the reader as at this trial at the international criminal court has to make up his own mind or her own mind about whether it was right or wrong, whether george bush is innocent or guilty. and i thought that was very important. the other thing also is you shall explain why george and not cheney or rumsfeld or blah, blah blacks. >> it's bed rock principal of international criminal law that the single person most responsible is tried first. and should that person be found guilty, then his accomplices would be tried as well. so the thing -- the news -- 43rd president, the 44th and 45th president of the united states is they're not just citizen of the united states. they're citizens of the world. and there is such a thing as the international criminal
