12:01 pm
hello. it is the first big break in the manhunt for those two escaped killers in upstate new york. the convicts' dna turning up inside a cabin sending hundreds of officers scrambling t to a new search site. that according to several reports which indicate the killers leveled the dna traces during the break-in within the last couple of days and police would not talk about the evidence they found other than calling it the first confirmed lead in the search for the savage murderers. that cabin break-in happened in a heavily wooded area not far from the prison. "the new york times" reporting the cops found prison-issued underwear inside in addition to dna. that cabin is near wolf pond, an area filled with vacation homes lots of them empty until their openers returned for the season right about now. you can see here just how isolated that area is with thick
12:02 pm
woods where the men could be hiding inside. that makes finding them a whole lot harder. for more than two weeks now they have somehow dodged high-tech equipment, including choppers with night vision and heat, seeking cameras. the killers have proven just how crafty they can be. prison officials say they pulled off a complicated escape using power tools to break out of their cells and tunnel beyond the prison walls. cops accused a prison tailor of giving them tools to help in that escape. she is behind bars he was. but on friday the prison put out a guard on -- in connection with the breakout -- officials have not said exactly why but i -- he is on leave right now and today there's word that the killer's might have gotten help from a lack of security at the supposedly maximum security prison. according to "the new york times." guards rarely checked to make sure that prisoners were actually in their cell beds during hourly checks.
12:03 pm
the times reports that the thumb the inmates used had not been regularly inspected in years. how about the guard towers? well allegedly the night of the escape, they were empty. and cell blocks don't have surveillance cams to watch for any suspect behavior. wreck leventhal is live in new york. what's happening there? >> reporter: a very heavy police presence with road blocks like the one you see behind me. vehicles stopped check trunks open other. roads closed completely as teams of police officers, aviation and k-9 units scour the thick woods of the adirondacks here, checking structures and possible hiding places for the two escaped killers who have been on the run for 17 days. police confirm they recovered items and found definitive evidence the men spent time in a hunting cabin here. authoritying catching a baby when the man who owns the camp went to check on the place armed if a handgun.
12:04 pm
he saw a jug of water and a jar of peanut butter inside. he yelled at whoever was in there to come out and someone went running out the back door. >> it's a confirmed lead for us. generating a massive law enforcement response, as you can see. and we're going to run this to ground. >> there are reports that authorities found bloody socks and boots and toiletries and footprints and locals are being warned to stay on the lookout. >> what more do we know about the corrections officer the latest one who is now on leave? >> we confirmed his name is gene palmer a 27-year veteran of the clinton correctional facility, the maximum security prison where the breakout occurred. according "the wall street journal" he had significant contact with matt and sweat and also worked with joyce mitchell, who is now charged with helping them escape. the man's attorney says that palmer talked to the fbi and state police for 14 hours providing significant and relevant information and he says his client did not
12:05 pm
intentionally help the men escape. authorities reportedly looking at three other corrections officers for their possible connection to the escape. >> all right. rick leventhal, thank you. springing craig cain, former corrections officer and retired inspecteddor with the u.s. marshal service spent 30 years hunting 1vd overseas. you're the real deal. thank you for dropping by. the dna is apparentsly inside this cabin, which is very close to the prison itself. so folks are saying, wait a minute. all this time for roughly two weeks they've been right under the noses of law enforcement? what does that say? >> well, as i said earlier, in one of your earlier shows when they set up the perimeter from the focal point the jail, and expanded outward they have to figure out how far they're going to go. has to be a limit to -- unless they have concrete evidence or information that they're further or a particular point. they have to decide where
12:06 pm
they're going to stop. these guys could be, like they said earlier ten miles just past the initial perimeter hunkered down, waiting for -- >> they could be 350 miles or so 365 miles where they were looking yesterday, because law enforcement -- and is was covering the news conference -- we have great confidence in this one witness who saw two men by railroad tracks which invites another question, these guys could jump a train. >> absolutely. they could jump a train. but want to bring up the point there's a lot of people out there, as crazy as it sounds, rooting for these guys. >> really. >> absolutely. >> these could be false leads. >> yes. suppose you're in a town and having a problem with your town they've don't want to fifth you a variance, the code enforcement is bothering you i'm going to wreak havoc on the town. i'll call up and give a leave. >> ticket out on the government.
12:07 pm
>> exactly. >> one law enforcement official says theku in> j the next 24 to 48 hours we're confident they're going to be caught. that's a broken recording. we have heard that repeatedly. >> we have but we did not have forensic evidence that put them in a particular point a particular area. so this is huge. >> i wonder whether law enforcement overestimates their skills and is underestimating the cleverness of these guys in their survival skills. i remember eric rudolph, we have a picture of him. the olympic bomber. he was a fugitive in the wilderness of the appalachian mountains for five years before he was finally caught but only by accident. so these identifies could be out there for a long time. >> absolutely. i had a indicate, guy escaped from a virginia road gang in 1940. we caught him in 1990. these guys are clever.
12:08 pm
>> let me ask you about the other aspect of the story. "the new york times," big story today, security and inspections at the prison were lax guard towers vacant, no cam florida the cell blocks, rules routinely broken and complacency was rampant. >> i worked in the prison setting for a very brief time, and it's like a machine. if you don't oil that machine the machine is going to get fatigue, machine is going to break down. so i equate the prison system to a machine. there's fatigue among the officers not getting paid good wages, don't care. or if they're not doing their inspokes lax on their inspections, things happen and they were lax to a certain degree and these guys made their holes and cuts. >> if you're running a maximum security prison, you're the warden you have to make sure
12:09 pm
it's being run properly. >> you think. >> how could you have guard towers unmanned at night especially. >> ludicrous. >> it's crazy. no surveillance cameras. maybe money is an issue but in this day and aim -- >> when i started in the early '80s they had surveillance cameras. this is the federal system i was in so maybe they had little bit more money but i've been up to state prisons many times and just can't fathom them not having a security system. >> craig cain, hope to have you back when they catch these guys and hopefully won't be five years like the olympic bomber. >> thank you greg. >> the man who landed a gyrocopter on the lawn of the u.s. capitol. he says he rejected a plea deal that would have landed him behind bars for several years in april the postal worker from florida flew a minihelicopter through some of america's strictest no-fly zones over the nation's capitol.
12:10 pm
he did it, he said to call attention to campaign finance laws. a bit of a disconnect but nevertheless he carried a box of protest letters addressed to each member of congress, but the mainman faces charges that could get him in prison for ten years. he says he rejected the plea deal because he did not believe he deserves so much jail time since nobody was hurt. terrorists detonate a car bomb at a government meeting and dozens of people are injured. the car bomb just the first step in a much larger attack. coming up, we'll have details on the fox news deck. you drop 40 grand on a new set of wheels, then... wham! a minivan t-bones you. guess what: your insurance company will only give you 37-thousand to replace it.

president obama used the n-word to explain his belief that racism is still a problem in america. he made that comment in an interview with the comedian mark marion, the president talk about a lot of different issues, including the charleston church massacre. he said america has made progress when it comes to race but the fight is not over yet. >> it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say [bleep] in public. that's r?ñ not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. it's not just a matter of overt discrimination. societies don't overnight

12:32 pm
conversation. here's a little built of what the press secretary joshern neace', has to say about that today. >> the president's use of the word and he reason he used the word could not be more apparent from the context of his discussion on the podcast. the president made clear that it's not possible to judge the nation's progress on race issues based solely on an evaluation of our country's manners. >> reporter: classic example of the message getting lost because of the way the messenger put the word out there. in this circumstance it's fair to state had he simply used n-word or maybe another word that was less explosive his message may have gotten across more clearly. >> well, it seems kevin some critics have taken issue with this. right? >> reporter: no question about that. again, if you're a parent and you're trying to teach your child, don't ever save that word that word is never useful, whether in a private setting or public space it is hard then to go back and say that when you hear the president saying that
12:33 pm
word. but i think what also sort of stood out in that conversation, the president himself sort of took umbrage at the used that some people say race relation it have never changed. they're as bad as they'veo listen carefully to how that was described in the podcast. >> do not say that nothing has changed when it comes to race in america. unless you lived through being a black man in the 1950s. or '60s or '7s so. it is incontro veritable that race relations have improved significantly during my lifetime and yours. >> reporter: no question about that. he was elected. not once but twice. greg, back to you. >> kevin, thank you very much. more now on the deadly charleston church shooting. south carolina's gov plans to call for the removal of the confederate flag from the grounds of the state capital according to the charleston post

12:35 pm
a short time ago in north charlston. >> what better way to honor the late reverend and senator clementa pinkney and those killed by one who adored the confederate battle flag and thought to it be symbolic of it would supremacy and hate. our friend and brother should not lie in state in the shadow of a flag whose meaning apparently motivated a killer to take his life. >> reporter: the official channels in the for's office will only say an important announcement is coming from governor nikki haley. >> whose they latest from folks there about the church shooting? >> reporter: well, it is really heart warming to watch this con stream of people, even braving this mid-day heat to come out here and sing in front the church lay flowers well watched the mother emanuel church yesterday open its doors once again. packed to capacity. people in the streets sing

12:37 pm
shooting is it any wonder that he allegedly had this manifesto that was filled with hate? >> no, greg, there's no wonder at all. i think that while everybody says they're analyzing it to make sure he did write that manifesto it has all of the sounds and all of the content that he has ease supposed and it's no doubt he did it him. >> apparently when he confessed to police he said he wanted to incite a race war. that's right out of neonazi white supremacist handbook. three years ago in florida ten people were busted in a plot to incite a race war. before that, boston, same plan, same goal, race war. goes back to 1969 and probably long before then. charlie manson, the manson family their helter skelter
12:38 pm
plan in the tate la bianka murders was to incorrect a race war. so tragically, biffle, this is not new in the minds of twisted hateful people, is it? >> reporter: it's not anything new. i think he grossly exaggerated overestimated his personal ability to start a race war. and what is even more contradictory is there is no way that kind of a concept would take hold in charleston, south carolina with that population of people who are true christians and love one another. he picked the wrong venue and he overestimated his own ability to do something like that. >> the fbi director, sames comey, was asked is this terrorism and should this be prosecuted as such? comey said, no. bill he might want to check his own fbi web site. which defines what terrorism is,
12:39 pm
according to federal statute. we'll put it up on the screen. here's their own web site, activities that involve acts dangerous to human life -- yes that happened here -- violates federal or state law -- happened here -- and appear suspended to intimidate a civilian population. didn't that happen here? >> greg, i leave all that up to the authorities, both from the justice department and the bureau. but let me say this. if a young islamic person got on a web site and self-radicalized, came from the web site, esupposed his radicalization, went and did something within america to someone based on those beliefs of his radicalization we would call him a terrorist. now he wave an individual, white male who went online, keyed in to google black on who is crime historied who did all of these
12:40 pm
things and does that fall into the same mode as the young islamic guy? in any mind it does. >> it's intend end for intimidation and coercion of the population. seems pretty clear. maybe we'll send mr. comey a copy of his web site. thank you so much. police say they found the body of a former white house chef who vanished after going hiking in new mexico. authority says walter shibe was 61 worked as a white house chef for 11 years under presidents clinton and george w. bush. his girlfriend reported him missing this month after he went for a hike in the mountains. about 70 miles north often santa fe. cops say search teams found his body near a trail. they did not say how he died in a statement former first lady laura bush said walter was an outstanding talent. he prepared magnificent dinners for world leaders and delicious
