people inside a d.c. mansion before setting the home on fire last week. the victims 46-year-old husband, his wife amy and son phillip and housekeeper were found when firefighters responded to the scene. the suspect had worked for his company, american iron works, in the past. police linked him to the murder scene after finding his dna on pizza crust. a federal source says went was arrested without incident and is in the custody of d.c. police. joining us now on the phone is ted williams d.c. lawyer and former homicide detective. now, ted, thanks for joining us again. you have been following this story today. from the scene, and penalople in the area they must be breathing a big sigh of relief tonight. >> absolutely. i was there around 7:00 early in
the area of the home during the greta van susteren show. you could feel there was a great deal of tension in the air. you have to believe that the tension has been relieved by the arrest of went tonight. >> are you surprised that he was taken into custody without incident? >> i am. and i'm elated that law enforcement, no one was injured. and i'm happy that he was taken into custody alive, because i do believe that he has a great deal of information that he can in fact provide law enforcement concerning this -- this heinous crimes. >> now, wint's former defense attorney said he believes he is innocent. what's your take on that? >> well i don't know whether he's innocent or guilty. i do know they have been able to tie him to that home by virtue
of the pizzas that were ordered that night. when we looked at the actual timeline we know that the father was opening up a karate school in virginia. and around 6:30 on that afternoon, he was at that school. got a phone call from his wife amy, came home and we do know later that night that two pizzas were ordered. and we do know now that the dna from those two pizzas haven't been eaten, but on the crust. the dna of darren wint was found. the next morning, around 7:00 that thursday morning, the father was on the phone with the chief financial officer of american iron works, the company where he was the ceo. he was also talking to an
assistant. later that day money was brought to his home and left at the door. and we know that later that thursday morning, it was found in a parking lot. and there was a grainy video of a person leaving, running away from that scene. and all of that has now been tied to mr. wint. >> now, as you mentioned, the investigators say that his dna was found on that pizza crust from the scene. but will that hold up as strong evidence in court? >> absolutely. i believe that it will strongly hold up. we'll look at dna. it is the most modern science that you can come about in identifying individuals at a crime scene.
so i do believe that that would hold up. i've got to tell you, it was very interesting as to what we've been able to learn here tonight as to how this arrest took place. and what we've learned through paul wagner a reporter at channel 5, that there was -- the u.s. marshal capitol regional task force had been looking for mr. wint. they also thought that they had caught him on wednesday in new york. he got back to this area. but what was interesting is around 11:00 tonight, in the college park maryland area off of route 1, they observed a vehicle with mr. wint on the passenger side. and they also had a box truck that the chevy cruise was following. they allowed that car to get to washington, d.c. to the area of
rowland avenue northeast. at that time they came upon his vehicle and made the arrest. now, what is interesting about that is that mr. wint from what i understand mr. wint's brother was also arrested. and a large sum of money was recovered from the box truck. that being said, the question mark now is a question that was raised earlier tonight by greta van susteren on her show. and is was there any accomplice. how could one man tie up three different individuals. and at the same time how did that person get to that location. and then leave in a porsche automobile. >> so you're saying that darren wint's brother was also arrested last evening? >> it is my understanding that that is what took place. that wint's brother was part of a group that was apprehended in the box truck.
and it is my understanding a large amount of cash was found. >> okay. again, darren wint has been arrested by d.c. police. and ted williams now telling us that it looks like his brother may also have been apprehended as well. so ted, thank you so much again, for joining us tonight. and getting us some additional information. >> my pleasure. there were reports earlier thursday that wint had made it to brooklyn new york. but he was arrested in washington, d.c. so joining us now on the phone is former nypd detective gail alva. good evening, mr. alva. what do you think of all of this? do you think he made it to new york or do you think that he has been in d.c. this whole time? >> well i think -- thanks for having me on -- i think that the police would know if he made it to new york. they spoke to his girlfriend.
they spoke to people in new york. they spoke to everybody. so i'm sure they would know if he made it there. and at this particular time i don't think there's any indication he made it up there. it's not easy for him to get away and start traveling all over. even in a car. you know as mr. williams said he got caught in a car with the family member's brother. that sounds more like it. i don't think he really made it that far. but i would just like to -- in these home invasions, they're particularly gruesome. and they're all sort of similar in a way where the person -- the perpetrator who goes into these homes takes full control of the family. and that by threat by hitting, probably picking on a kid, the 10-year-old kid, the wife hitting -- getting really violent. these people do everything for this person.
and that's why they enter the doorway that way and do everything he says. they're afraid he's going to kill them. that's why they have full control of the family. and they don't do anything they try to survive. this is the end result of that ng to do. is he going to release them and just walk away? he knows at the end he's going to kill everybody, and sets the house on fire. it's really you know these kind of crimes are similar. it's not a copycat crime, they're similar crimes. >> what do you think of this idea of an accomplice? now it looks like darren dylan wint's brother may have been apprehended as well. >> yeah. you know i don't know how many people were in the house at the time when this all happened. obviously he had help in getting away. and, you know it's a relief to everybody that he was caught. for me to think that he was caught without incident that's pretty good because he was with his brother, and in the car, and
they stopped him. i believe if he was in an apartment by himself, not that he was going to fight with the police but he would probably do harm to himself or kill himself. that's usually what happens in the long run. >> what are your thoughts about the pizza, the dna situation, as far as that holding up in court? >> well they have him now. so you know that's a different thing. i'm sure he's going to get a lawyer right away and start talking. but i don't really think that's the only evidence they have. especially when they are looking for him like this. and the way they put the manhunt and put him as a suspect, not as a person of interest. so i have a feeling they have a lot more evidence than this. and even the video, the dna evidence the fact that they're going to find more evidence in the house. so there's going to be a lot more evidence involved here. >> now, wint's former defense attorney believes that he is innocent. what do you think that he could argue at this point? >> i heard him talk and that
was his client. he's such a nice guy. you know how can he be a nice guy and kill all those people. so you think that's not him and he's not involved. that's a whole different direction he's going in. >> so now that they have him in custody, what do you think is going to take place next? >> well they're going to try to talk to him. depends if he wants to talk. or he's going to request an attorney. now, he's already been arrested many times so he knows the system. i'm sure he's going to ask for an attorney. and they're just going to go through the process. once you arrest somebody it takes all this time to gather all the evidence. it's tedious work to do just like they found the dna on the pizza crust. you know which is great work that they can do now. that wouldn't have happened years ago, or a few years ago. and especially in this short period of time. so everything is going to fall in place. and if this is the person that did it they're going to have
enough evidence to prove he did it. >> what do you think of the fact that his attorney has been able to get him off six times prior to this off other charges? >> this is what happens in these. even though they're violent crimes you know, this is what happens in a lot of these cases. you know it's not unusual that this happens. especially the case it is even though it's a weapon or wife or machete, or whatever he had with him. he got off on small charges, other charges that didn't mean that much. >> with all of this evidence that is coming together now, what do you think are the odds that he could get him off a seventh time? >> to me i don't think -- under these conditions the way this happened and the time that he was in that house, i think they'll find sufficient evidence to at that point find him guilty
of this whole thing. because, you know what did he do about that this is like a premeditated crime. he knew -- he worked for that company. so all this was kind of a setup. and ordering the money. and i don't know what kind of money -- if they find dna, and that money was part of the money that they delivered, you know that's all connected. >> gil, i have to stop you there. i'm so sorry. thank you so much for joining us. we're out of time. gil alba former nypd detective tonight. >> thank you. authorities in the nation's capitol have arrested wint the suspects in the killing of a wealthy d.c. family and their housekeeper. he was apprehended in washington just before 11:00 p.m. thursday. i am totally blind. and sometimes i struggle to sleep at night,

. welcome back to "hannity." senator rand paul took a big stand against the renewal of the patriot act last night by holding a ten-plus-hour filibuster on the senate floor. >> my voice is rapidly leaving. my bedtime has long since passed. and i think it's time that we summarize why we're here today, and what my hope is for the future with this issue. we need to end the bulk collection of records. but that's not where this battle ends. there's still a question of whether or not the executive is gathering a great deal of information through executive order. i think that has to be reviewed. it has to be reviewed in public. >> joining me now is the man wleed leading the fight against the patriot act. the author of the upcoming new book out on may 26th, taking a stand, moving beyond partisan politics to unite america, 2016
presidential candidate rand paul. the how are you doing this? and what are your chances of actually getting rid of this piece of legislation? >> well you know i think public opinion does have a big influence, even in washington. if people go to randball.com we'll help to relay that to washington. we'll let people know what we would really like to see is the government has to have your name on a warrant. this is what our founding fathers fought the revolution over is the government shouldn't be allowed to have a blanket warrant, or a generalized warrant to collect all of our records. and so i think if we have enough influence and enough people go to randpaul.com we will have an influence. already they said they wouldn't give us any amendments. now it looks like maybe we'll get to amend the patriot act. >> senator paul your potential contender for the white house, jeb bush was asked about what you are doing.
and he intimated that you're operating from a separate set of facts. of course he's defending his brother's legislation. but he said there isn't a shred of evidence that anyone's civil liberties have ever been violated. how do you respond? >> i think the violation of our civil liberties is in the collection of the data. we're not alleging that the people who work in the nsa are bad people that they have bad motives, that they're unpatriotic. we're just alleging that the government on occasion has historically abused the rights of the citizens. we did it during the civil rights era, we did it during the vietnam era, we did it to the japanese-americans during world war ii. so the dangers in letting the government collect so much information, and also the danger is that the fourth amendment, which our founders were very proud of said you have to write an individual's name on the warrant, and if you write the name verizon and collect all the records from the company verizon, that's not a very specific way of doing things.
it's not individualized. and you're not going after people who we're suspicious of we're just going after everybody's records. and that's an invasion of privacy privacy. >> i think if you get the wrong person at the hell am in the white house, all that data not only is it too much to comb through, they could use it against americans if you get a potentially correct president. >> even now. >> that's right. senator paul good luck with your effort. thanks for joining. >> thank you. and with me now to react is fox news senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. all right, judge, i know that you're on the side of rand. you say he's the only presidential contender right now who is actually faithful to the u.s. constitution. >> good evening. it's a pleasure to be with you no matter how far apart we are at the time we're working together. >> me too. >> senator paul is the only
person who has announced for president who is faithful to the constitution. and i think he demonstrated that yesterday in 11 hours of speaking on the floor of the senate. which you just saw nicely summarized for all of us a few moments ago. the fourth amendment absolutely prohibits a general warrant. a general warrant is a piece of paper in which a court says admit the bearer to take what -- listen to whatever he wants, go wherever he wants to go and to seize whatever he finds. because the fourth amendment says search warrants can only come about when the government has probable cause to believe that someone is committing a crime, and the warrant must specifically describe the person or place to be seized or the thing to be searched. and these general warrants that the secret fisa gives out do not do that. instead, they say you may seize all the phone calls in an area code in a zip code or from a particular telecom like verizon.
that is more information than the nsa can possibly go through. and it is a profound violation of the fourth amendment. and therefore, the civil liberties of everyone whose records have been seized. >> judge, what do you say to former attorney general michael mukasey who was on fox earlier and said this has been helpful, this program led us right to the door of the terrorist who was going to blow up the new york subways? >> he is incorrect. he was discovered by a suspicious vendor in times square. a couple of blocks from where you and i work who was taking photographs of locations. and e-mailing those photos. and the police got on him that way. when general keith alexander who ran the nsa for four years was asked how many plots your spying on old people all the time has asked under oath he said 53. the next day he amended that to three. when asked to explain his
reduction from 53 to 3, or to describe the 3, he declined to answer. the problem with this andrea is that it not only violates our freedom by invadeing our privacy, it doesn't work. it's too much information for the nsa to sift through. the framers were right when they said if you present some evidence to a court first, you already have an idea of who the bad guy is. if they follow the constitution they'll find more bad guys and find them sooner than if they gather all the information from everybody all the time. >> one hot debate. judge, you've always been all over this and we thank you for your time. >> a pleasure andrea. here with more reaction is the editor of national review rich lowerie. you have been all over this. i've been reading your column. you disagree with the senator and the judge. why? >> the next time you see the judge, ask him to produce his metadata do they keep it in a
file at home? he doesn't have it. it doesn't belong to him. it is just phone records. and phone numbers that have been called and length of calls that are controlled by the phone companies. so to have a violation of the first amendment. there actually has to have some expectation of privacy. the supreme court has been very clear about this. you don't have it with those records. because they don't belong to you. the nsa was invading your home and actually taking away your filing cabinets of course it would be unconstitutional. but that's not what we're talking about. people like the judge and rand paul unfortunately distort and misrepresent what this program is about. >> very quickly, what should republicans be proposing? if you don't agree with the solution that rand paul is putting out there, which is that they have to go to the phone companies instead. >> reauthorize the program. it is not a threat to our liberties. google knows more about you than the nsa does. the phone company knows more about you than the nsa does.
the credit card company knows more about you than the nsa does. this is a vast repository of records with no name attached that the nsa only taps into when they find a number associated with the terrorist in yemen. then they look for numbers associated with that specific number. and if they actually then want to go to the content of that then someone has to go and get a warrant. that's the way our system works. that's the way this program works. >> we'll see what happens. mitch mcconnell is proposing another freedom act, usa freedom act and republicans are split down the middle. you've been covering it for the national review. so we'll keep reading your column. >> thank you, andrea. coming up next right here on "hannity." >> we are not only failing, we are in fact losing this war. moreover i can say with certainty that this strategy will not defeat isis. >> that was general jack keene testifying in washington earlier
today about isis. he joins us next to explain what he meant. plus another day, another scandal surfaces regarding hillary clinton. this time it's e-mails related to the benghazi terror attacks that left four americans dead. stay with us. w... but, i have a wandering eye. i mean, come on. national gives me the control to choose any car in the aisle i want. i could choose you... or i could choose her if i like her more. and i do. oh, the silent treatment. real mature. so you wanna get out of here? go national. go like a pro.
while there has been some progress and some success, looking at this strategy today, we know now that theptual plan is fundamentally flawed. the resources provided to support iraq are far from adequate. the timing and urgency to provide arms equipment and training is insufficient. and as such we are not only failing, we are in fact losing this war. moreover i can say with certainty that this strategy will not defeat isis. >> that was fox news military analyst general jack keane testifying before a senate
committee earlier today on the administration's failing isis strategy. joining me to explain his comments further is the general. general, welcome to the program. >> good to be here andrea. >> good to see you as always. general, why do you say that we are losing this war? >> well you know the president designed this strategy nine months ago. and we all had some general reservations about it at the time. but when you get right into it when i say the concept is flawed what i mean by that is isis headquarters all of its resources, its recruiting its training its logistics, its expansion in syria, there is no plan to deal with syria whatsoever andrea. you cannot defeat isis in syria without some kind of ground element. and we do not have a ground element. so that center stage is a flawed plan. isis is expanding as you know into the region.
it's expanding in yemen, afghanistan, in the sinai, and also significantly in libya. no plans to counter any of that expansion. and then what's got everybody's attention, of course, is iraq itself. what i say about that is the resources that we're providing are just not enough. they are inadequate to what is necessary to assist the iraqis. certainly there's problems with the iraqis. the military. problems with the iraqi political leadership. nonetheless, our support for them politically and militarily is significantly inadequate. >> general, we have a president who he doesn't seem to have the appetite to do more. and as you point out, the iraqi military not very strong. it's a pretty dangerous situation over there. do we really want to be sending our men and women into harm's way with a commander in chief that arguably isn't fully in it? >> well there's no doubt that
you'll have to question the commitment and the resolve. you know war, andrea is fundamentally a test of will. if we don't have the political will then it's very difficult to win any contest like this. when you compare us to isis what are you looking at? isis is a new organization with new leaders. they're ambitious. they're resourceful. they're confident. they have a vision to change dramatically the regional landscape as well as the global landscape using a religious war, and the basis for it is their ideology. they are totally committed. and they are totally all into that. when you look at our actions, it tells you that our resolve and our commitment is not anywhere near that. and that has to change. if we don't change that if we don't change the resources, if we truly don't make the commitment then it will be what i suggested in the testimony,
that we're not going to defeat isis. and isis is a threat to the united states and to our regional interests, andrea. >> yeah. and unfortunately i don't think they're going to wake up until something tragic happens here at home. and they're successful. or until we get a change in administration. general keane, thank you so much for your time. >> good seeing you, andrea. >> joining us for reaction is colonel david hunt and brigadier general tony tata. colonel, i want to go to you first. you have said very flat-out, iraq is gone. so there's no getting it back. so we heard the president say that it's just a minor thing, we can get it back. you don't think that we can. >> no. one-third of it's gone to isis. the government of iraq didn't pay their costs in ramadi for six months. the cost of ramadi were buying bullets in the black market. the iraqi military ran away the
first time in mosul. 50,000 guys. currently they've got 50,000 soldiers they call ghost soldiers who are actually paying their bosses not to play. the problem i have with general keane and a lot of others he always wants to move americans back in. there's no appetite here for it. the arab world has got to get bloody. saudi arabia i mean jordan i mean egypt, they have got to get in there first. our air campaign has failed because we are not allowed americans to be in combat. less than 25% of the air that's flown for nine months andrea, has not dropped a bomb. they're not dropping. my issue is we have done more than we have. >> general tata i do agree with colonel hunt. i don't favor putting american boots on the ground. i think the international community should get more
involved. i want to ask you, how soon before iran invades? have we eventually seeded the region to iran? isn't that down the road the real debate? >> in a subliminal way, they already have andrea. they're fighting in tikrit, and penetrating into iraq. and that is part of the overall strategy. they're shooting at our forces. their special forces are shooting at american forces as we fight on the ground there. what isis has done really and our neglect of that having an holistic strategy with combined arms where air power is synchronized with ground power, isis has strategically enveloped baghdad from ramadi with ramadi from the west and mosul to the north. and they control the lines of communication. and as colonel hunt was just saying we have to get all of our elements of power at play here. and one of those is political, one of those is diplomatic in
getting the egyptians, syrians, and jordanians and all capable armies on the ground like we did in the first gulf war. there were some 38 nations on the line ready to go to reestablish the borders of kuwait. we've got to reestablish the borders of iraq. >> that's one thing president obama said he would do to get the coalition to get the community organizer and organize the international community. that hasn't happened until one of their own like in jordan was killed then they stepped up. this debate is not going anywhere soon. i do think we've potentially seeded the entire region to iran. we shouldn't have left iraq fall in the first place. general, thank you. colonel, thank you. >> thank you, andrea. coming up hillary clinton's newly released benghazi e-mails show why she initially blamed the terror attack on a youtube video. jonah goldberg and penny lee will be here next with reaction. and later --
>> you want somebody who's going to be in control. you want somebody who's confident. you want somebody who's not afraid to sail. those are the qualities that made him such a good pitcher, probably helped to make him such a good pilot. >> just in time for memorial day. fox sports put together a very touching tribute for one of our fallen heroes. it's really good stuff. stay with us. why am i so awake? did you know your brain has a wake system... and a sleep system? science suggests when you have insomnia, the neurotransmitters in your wake system may be too strong, which may be preventing you from getting the sleep you need. talk to your doctor about ways to manage your insomnia.

welcome back to "hannity." new information tonight into what may have caused hillary clinton to blame the terror attack in benghazi on a spontaneous youtube video. earlyier today "the new york times" released e-mails about benghazi. sidney bloomenthal who is allegedly working with companies trying to do business in libya at the time sent a message to then secretary of state hillary clinton a day after the benghazi
attack claiming he had intelligence that the terror strike was caused by a random video. joining me with reaction are national review senior and penny lee. jonah, we've been wondering, where did the video idea come from? it could have come from bloomenthal, it could have come from someone else. hillary is not getting her intelligence from the dni or the cia or the dhs. she's getting it from a guy named sidney. what could go wrong? >> well look i've long believed sidney bloomenthal is a terrible creature. i'm convinced he has hooves. but the simple fact is i don't think that hillary got the idea from bloomenthal. i think hillary got the idea because it was a political strategy from the beginning. it was an administrationwide decision.
bloomenthal said this wasn't a pre-planned attack. we also know the defense intelligence agency told her within four of this days that it was a pre-planned attack. they stayed on the original message, it was all about the video. that's how they wanted to frame this. it had nothing to do with the intelligence. >> penny, whose fault is it? if hillary clinton had intelligence from her buddy sidney and she knew this was al qaeda, why did she let the administration continue on with this narrative? is it president obama's fault? >> because she was secretary of state. president obama, it is his -- overall, he is the president of the united states and it is his team that was putting together what happened and assessing what was actually happening on the ground. she is one part of that along with the secretary of defense, along with the cia director along with the national intelligence officers. it was a full group of
individuals that were part of the discussion about what was going on, what was happening. so it was not an isolated person. and to go after hillary and say she should have been the one front and center that is not following the chain of command, as you know. >> she was screaming and hysterical at that meeting. >> hysterical? andrea she was not hysterical. she was very thoughtful and very thorough -- >> no no -- >> andrea what are you talking about? >> she reacted strongly. >> she reacted strongly by one question -- >> but wait. >> she was very thoughtful. >> let me ask you a question. penny, let me ask you a question. she paid attention to her friend sidney's e-mails about intelligence in libya. someone that the administration did not want near that state department. why didn't she pay attention to the e-mails from her good friend christopher stevens, the ambassador who asked for
additional security? >> andrea she didn't -- >> she didn't give the security he needed. why? >> that is not true. if you look at the e-mails, she forwarded many to chris, and took his position. >> she didn't get him security and he died. >> andrea that is not true. >> it's absolutely true. >> she actually went to ambassador stevens and asked for his opinion. she asked him. and he said on many occasions -- >> and he needed security and he died. the security was drawn down. jonah, they reduced -- if you look at mike morrell -- if you look at the -- at the cia -- penny, let jonah get it in. because you're not answering the question. why did she pay such attention to sidney bloomenthal and ignore the request from somebody who actually worked for her? why did she do that? >> well look why she ignored,
or allegedly ignored the security request, you know i think is a perfectly legitimate thing. i think in her testimony, she essentially stonewalled the issue. but it seems to me that penny's position is the reason why hillary clinton participated in a deliberate lie about the role of the video, is because she was simply bleeding her good soldier barack obama. that is not exoneration for hillary clinton when she's now claiming she wants to be commander in chief. the fact she's involved with sidney blumenthal at all in this he's basically the equivalent -- he's the equivalent of the self-server. he's a secret intelligence analyst, that even the obama administration thought he was too s on the payroll. >> that's true. thank you, penny, thank you, jonah, very much. up next right here on "hannity." >> you want somebody who's going to be in control. you want somebody who's confident. you want somebody who's not afraid to sail. i think those qualities made him such a good pitcher, probably
helped to make him such a good pilot. >> fox sports has put together a touching tribute for one of our fallen heroes just in time for memorial day. that's next. that's next. when the moment's spontaneous, why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision or any symptoms of an allergic reaction stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis for daily use and a free 30-tablet trial. when it comes to your credit, in the know is the place to be. transunion.com makes it easy. we give you 24/7 access.

friends over at fox sports are paying tribute to the troops. they have put together a salute to a fallen american hero. major reich was tragically killed in afghanistan in june of 2005 during a mission to rescue the stranded navy s.e.a.l.s depicted in the film and book "lone survivor." take a look. >> a single game career. when the stakes were the highest, steven performed the best. >> he said what should i do next. his commander said you need to think about special operations you need to think about the 160th. once he saw the 160th, he saw a higher level. he just jumped at it. >> the 160th operation regiment provides precision, helicopter support to our nation's elite, army rangers, green berets
special forces and navy s.e.a.l.s. >> you want somebody who's going to be in control, and you want somebody who's confident. you want somebody who's not afraid to sail. i think those qualities that made him such a good pitcher, probably helped to make him such a good pilot. >> he was a natural leader. he was a natural pilot, a stick-and-rudder kind of guy. we like to say he could fly the airplane gracefully. we first deployed in september of 2001. steve was a captain, ran the missions that we were conducting into afghanistan in the early days of the war. steve was very instrumental in controlling and leading those missions. >> i was cleaning the house, and i stopped to take a break. and i turned on the television set. >> good morning, everyone military officials tell abc news it was a rocket propelled
grenade that took down a u.s. helicopter in a remote area of afghanistan. it was carrying 17 service members, including a team of navy s.e.a.l.s. at this point their fate is unknown. >> in my heart, i knew that it was my son. >> we knew the helicopter was down. we knew lives were lost. we didn't immediately get a call. we were just one of the many, many families waiting. >> i was talking to my sister on the phone. and a car pulled up. an army captain in a green uniform got out of the car. >> came down the driveway.
>> i knew then. >> joining me now is major steven reich's father ray reich. what's going through your mind when you watch this? i saw you get a little choked up. >> like right now. >> me, too. tell me about your son. >> well he wasn't just a son. he did some very nice things. and after he died we started to know how many people really valued him for a variety of reasons. and not the least of which was baseball. but he was very good -- a very good officer. and his troops followed him. and he loved to fly. and he would seldom tell us where he was, other than you know mom, there's a lot of sand over here.
and the extraordinary response to his life. >> it is a beautiful tribute. talk a little bit about why your son loved baseball so much. >> in part i have to say, because day one, we played baseball. when he was just a child, he had come to watch me play softball. when you get older, you play softball. and he just loved the ball and the bat and the glove. and he was a lefty. and it just -- it was his passion. and i didn't have to work at it. he just took off and thought it was a great thing to do. >> well he was good at everything he did. and i'm sure it was very bittersweet for him to be playing for the orioles and have all this fanfare, but then be called off into duty. you must have been so proud of him. and you must still be so proud. >> well we had a ceremony at the high school today, where we recognized one of the high school students who reminds his
faculty, the faculty of certain characteristics. and to hear them described, it was very heartwarming. and is every year when we go through that. >> we're grateful for his service. when one serves the family serves. thank you. >> thank you. more "hannity" right after the break. make sure to watch that on fox sports this weekend. stay with us. no, like you haven't seen a bed in weeks! zzzquil. the non habit forming sleep-aid that helps you sleep easily and wake refreshed. because sleep is a beautiful thing. you can call me shallow... but, i have a wandering eye. i mean, come on. national gives me the control to choose any car in the aisle i want.
