you . there seems no place is safe from partisan politics in washington these days.
3:17 pm
republicans are saying democrats are breaking the rules right now by showing clips of a political film on neutral ground. >> this event raised a few eyebrows when it was originally promoted as the top democrats in congress hosting a premiere of a purely political film here on capitol hill. let's take you live to the capital visitor center. koch brothers exposed is the film. here's a sample of the film's trailer. the koch brothers are the poster boys for the top 1%, their money, power, fueled growing inequality in america. day in day out we see the kochs
3:18 pm

3:19 pm
shows the koch influences. >> that shows how their t tentacles into the republican establishment. >> after some protests from miller, the event was quickly changed from a premiere or a fund-raiser to a news conference where clips are shown. no decision still by democrats about whether to participate in the house select committee on benghazi. speaker john boehner met for about an hour today with minority leader nancy pelosi. >> did the speaker respond favorably to some of your requests for the benghazi committee? >> you know what, you don't expect i'm telling you anything right now. >> here's what president obama said about the benghazi probe at a fun rise razor we're having last. the debate we're having right now is about benghazi, obamacare, it and it becomes the
3:20 pm
endless loop, it's not serious. it's not speak to the real concerns that people have. republicans have already named a chairman and six other members to that committee. >> a federal judge is refusing to dismiss corruption charngs against bob mcdonnell and his wife. they are accused of taking more than $165,000 from head of a dietary supplement maker. they insist they are not guilty. the judge also ruled mcdonnells will be tried together. >> breaking news coming in from oregon. the governor's office said federal prosecutors have subpoenaed state records for a grand jury investigation for the troubled oregon health website. you may remember the state abandoned its plans for the site after it did not work. the governor's office saying they released the documents to u.s. attorneys.

3:22 pm
3:23 pm
3:24 pm
another fox news alert tonight, the obama administration is said to be about to release its official justification for targeting american citizens overseas for deadly drone strikes. here with the breaking details. >> the aclu which sued for the memo concerning some of the details tonight that the administration is now willing to release the information. the traditional supporters have banded together to force the release of the memos before
3:25 pm
moving forward on the president's nomination of david baron. in addition, baron wrote at least two of those memos for the legal justification for the targeting of mrn citizens. the justice department has said it decided not to appeal a court order that called on the obama administration to release a redacted version of the memo. so many detail of the drone program was public that it was not administration for to argue that the legal rationale to remain secret. >> these are extremely important and consequential opinions.

3:34 pm
unless they have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles. >> he voted for something that successfully closed down six planned parenthood centers in pennsylvania. >> in his campaign statement on women's health, he says, the issue of abortion is a deeply divisive one. adding that he's undergone an evolution on this issue. he's been lauded and pill loredry by both groups, leaving him to walk a delicate line. >> i just think what's stream about this is that this should be not be considered outside the bounds of even what a pro choice person would do. i think actually a pro choice person could support having a doctor on staff who can admit people to a hospital or could support saying let's have an

3:39 pm
what we've seen is that thousands of fighters from around the world, including hundreds from the west, have traveled to syria and many of them have joined with established terrorist groups in syria. and this raises our concern that radicalized individuals with extremist contacts and battlefield experience 0 could return to their home countries to commit violence at their own initiative or participate in al qaeda directed plots aimed at western targets outside of syria. that was the head of the national counterterrorism center a couple of months ago up on capitol hill. now a new report, the daily beast writes this, the latest u.s. intelligence estimates more than 100 americans have joined the jihad in satisfactory to
3:40 pm
fight alongside terrorists there. they believe that between six and twelve americans who have gone to syria to fight asad have now returned to america. we know where some are, one u.s. official told the daily beast, the concern is the scale of the problem we are dealing with. we will start in syria. let's start with our panel, george will, juan williams, and charles kraut krauthammer. >> syria is a training ground. it makes you wonder whether it should still be u.s. policy that asad has to go because it gives you some clarity about the kind of people who are going to win if asad loses, and it could be, although it sounds callus to say
3:41 pm
that some of them who went there to fight die there fighting. >> our policy has not worked. many people are saying that on all sides, juan. as you take a look at the death toll, 162,000 deaths in syria since this began, 10,000 in less than two months, and about 54 rrks,000 civilians, 8,600 children. those are staggering numbers. >> it is staggering numbers and again the policy -- the thought was on the part of administration that they can get bashir assad out in months and that was years ago. we don't know who the rebels are, who the opposition is, and for the longest time we've wanted to support the osu ter of
3:42 pm
as sad. we were unsure who we were supporting. senator mccain saying we should arm the opposition. why would we want to arm these jihadists. these are people's who are enemy of america. the question back how do we get involved, what is the effective strategy and at this point it looks like the opposition is going hay wire. they don't have any political opposition except terrorism. >> the president dropped into that meeting just the other day. you wonder how that conversation went. charles, your thoughts? >> i think we promised them what we've been promising them for years, and in which we have not delivered and i'm sure they walk out happy and they will be disappointed. they will not get anything. if these are the nonjihadi rebels. we don't want to rewrite history here. the jihadis were not around at the beginning of this revolt.
3:43 pm
there was an opposition that we could have easily supported with weapons and training. what turned the war around is not that asad is a great leader. it's that iran and russia poured in weapons. iran was able to mobilize hezboll hezbollah. iran was able to bring in its revolutionary guards and now there are reports it has brought in afghans to fight. this is a war he won by default because it was like the spanish civil war and international conflict except that only one side showed up. the russian iranian side and our side never showed up. at this point we can still identify nonjihadi opposition and support them to have at least a larger say when the fighting stops. twin car bombs in nigeria.
3:44 pm
the head of the senate intelligence committee said this about al qaeda and here's the state department response. >> we just went through the opening of the 9/11 museum. i know they will come after us if they can. i see the intelligence. terror is not down in the world. it is up, both death, injuries, in many different places. al qaeda has me tas sized. >> before al qaeda has been decimated. we have been concerned about affiliates or growth around the world. >> he hasn't spoken to it in that capacity, so i leave it at what the second has set about it. >> i don't know the distinction they make incest tantly between core al qaeda and al qaeda.
3:45 pm
which was run by her party on the premise that al qaeda is on the run. now, we've redesignated the survives as core al qaeda and exempted them from this but the fact is the premise of the president's campaign in foreign policy is now shredded. >> george, let me help you quickly and say that core al qaeda attacked us on 9/11. there's a big difference between that group and the group that is as you describe it spreading of islamic extreme ideology in the world. especially among populations in yemen and the others and people who are looking for a reason to engage in revolution. >> thank you for helping me with that. go ahead and elaborate how we distinguish the two. >> i just told you. it's going back to bin laden and
3:46 pm
that organize that was directly responsible for killing americans. >> so we're in good shape. >> no. i didn't say that. clearly, we have an obligation to fight terror wherever it rears its head and threatens us but there is a difference between a threat that's potential and one that was actual. >> well, somebody made those bombs go off in nigeria. somebody is training those americans and europeans in syria, and whether they are technically core or not core, they are still a threat. >> that's what i say. we have an obligation. i think that's what we're seeing and especially as we've just been describe being the situation in syria, we have an interest in that site. >> we have a president whose last major foreign policy address had one major theme. this war must end, meaning the war on terror. it must end, because it has really corrosive effects on the country. it's got to end. all wars have to end. as if we can unilaterally end
3:47 pm
the war when the other guy won't do it. we have a president always trying to downplay the threat which is out there and then we're surprised there's no domestic support for a robust against terror and elsewhere. there's a president who wants to live in a peaceful world and live in a world where people no longer act like 19th century men like the russians and no longer act like bar bearians like the guys who just explode the the bombs in nigeria. unfortunately, we live in a world where these people exist and the role of the president is to lead the nation inizing the mobilizing support, to oppose it. he's done precisely the opposite. psychologically he demobilized the country. >> next up, the mitd term super tuesday. coming up.

3:51 pm
comcast business built for business. i think the tea party brought great energy to our political process. you get in these primary elections, they are hard-fought battles and sometimes -- listen, there is not that big of difference between what y'all call the tea party and your average conservative republican. >> speaker boehner today talking about the tea party. it's influence in these primaries there are a lot of them tonight these primaries across the country as you take a look at the map. the biggest states really that everyone is focused on, georgia, kentucky, there is a republican battle out in oregon. other states holding primaries as well. both republicans and democrats on the g.o.p. side in georgia, you see a list of essentially five
3:52 pm
candidates who have possibility of getting into a run-off and you see those five and how that battle is forming will say a lot about how the general election goes, likely against michelle nunn who is the democratic down there. michigan mcconnell the senate minority leader fighting to run against the democrat who will likely be ms. grimes. the former attorney general down there. we're back with the panel. charles, what about with what the speaker said there and the general framing of these primaries? >> look, i think the speaker is fundamental ely right. he likes to -- i think he is he probably exaggerating slightly in saying it there are no real conflicts. there are. this sort of war within the republican party that has been trumpeted in the press is a phony. it's not a war. it's the wings of the party. all parties have wings and they will disagree over certain issues. i think they are largely tactical. i think when it comes to small government and taxation, regulation, there is general agreement.
3:53 pm
it has to do with the fact, i think, can you govern with control of one house of congress? the answer is no. some people would like to. but, in terms of these primaries, i don't see how of the venom that we have talked about. i think we will probably end up request a slate of almost entirely if not establishment but middle of the road candidates who who who can win and that will be different than it was two years ago and four years ago when the republicans threw away five seats in the senate. >> juan? >> well, i think that there is a real divide. i mean, you know, speaker boehner. >> divide in the democratic party between the left side of the party? >> there are lots of divides. i think the estion here comes back to something charles was just saying is who controls the candidates and who would put the candidates in position to win? and i think there was a lot of hard feelings after not only 2012, but beyond with regard to allowing the democrats to control the majority in the senate when it looked like republicans
3:54 pm
could have won it. and the idea is that the landscape here is right for republicans to win the majority this time. and so you want to avoid the mistakes of the past. and vow people like the chamber of commerce. have you people, including speaker boehner saying we are going to nominate strong candidates who can appeal to independents, the middle of the road folks and not alienate them by making harsh comments. >> george? >> when howard dean ran in 2004, i don't recall people saying gosh, there is a civil war in the democratic party because howard dean says i represent the democratic wing of the democratic party. the standards are a little different with the republicans, but the republicans are really good at fighting with each other. it's one the older traditions. in 1912, teddy roosevelt challenges as an independent candidate an incumbent republican president who winds up carrying two states. vermont and utah. william howard taft in 1964, goldwater against rockefeller. didn't work out well in 1964. but they -- the republicans
3:55 pm
won five of the next six and seven of the next 9 presidential elections. fighting is not fatal. and indeed it shows a certain native vigor in the party. >> is there a change in the way they are thinking? >> speaker boehner is right first of all there is not that much difference. the fact is the tea party could have gone its own way and become a third party. it went into the republican party it infused the party. it is now where the energy is and the party has moved toward the tea party. >> they need the tea party towards the energy. they don't want the people lining their own pockets. a lot of these direct mail types. >> that is it for the panel. stay tuned for one show's advice for a department head under fire. the success of your small business depends on results. go vests! all organic, and there's tons of info on our website. that's why you rely on the best for your business. and verizon delivers the best devices on the best network.
