to blow apart the business show tonight, lookinga at how good intentions end up costing through through the nose, especially when we don't follow any of the mistakes that we had with corrections. we just compound the sin, tonight on fbn. hello, everyone. i'm andrea tan tearose along with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, and greg gutfield. it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." >> well, president obama was telling americans one thick about our mission in afghanistan and telling his aides another behind closed doors in 2010. that from the former secretary of defense in his administration who just did a cable news interview with our own sean hannity last night. >> as late as december of 2010, he was still going out in front of the public and announcing the results of the latest review and saying, you know, we're moving ahead. we're doing a good job. we're accomplishing what we set
out to do. but i think behind the scenes, he was -- he was continually worried that the thing wasn't working and expressed those concerns, in large groups as well as face-to-face. >> well, not only was the president unsure about his decision to send 30,000 more troops into harm's way, but robert gateses also told sean about his suspicion of the military leaders running the war. >> i always had the feeling with him, first of all, that he was suspicious of their motives and second that time spent with them was an obligation. rather than something he enjoyed. >> and fortunately, the jaw droppers don't stop there, but eric, what do you think about this admission that president obama is going out there, he's telling the public everything is going great, we're doing a good job, we're getting results, and then behind closed doors, he has this apprehension, he doesn't want to be there. i can see on one hand how he wouldn't want to go out and slam the mission while we have men and women in harm's way, but if he was so against it, why didn't
he pull them out? >> again, i'm not sure why he didn't and again, 30,000 more troops, and then bob gates tells he wasn't sure of the mission and he didn't trust in the leaders. gates tells us president obama wasn't sure the leaders were carrying out the mission properly. he was completely insecure in some of the things he was -- the shot he was calling. and you're going to tell me if you're on the front line right now, forget then, right now, you're wondering whether or not this commander in chief is convinced he's doing the right thing, whether these people on the front line are in fact representing the united states of america. i have to tell you, if i'm a parent of a kid over there right now, i'm going, wow, define this mission, either get in, get out, and before you do anything else, you better be sure about what you do, your next move. >> that's just absolutely ridiculous. >> which part? >> all of it. >> why? >> let me say one thing. who sindz in troops in a mission like that and doesn't have
second thoughts about it? doesn't think about it every day? wonder whether it was the right decision to make. i bet you george bush did, too, and the other thing is this is gates saying he had this feeling about obama and the chiefs. a feeling doesn't sell me on anything. >> you think george bush wasn't sure about his mission? >> i think every day he asked himself a question, i hope i did the right thing? >> of course you do, but you don't stand in front of the secretary of defense and the future -- was she secretary of state at the time? not sure, hillary clinton, and say i'm not sure about this. you don't do that. you basically told the world -- >> i don't think. he said he had concerns about it, and who wouldn't have concerns? >> but bob, he did run on afghanistan being the good war. that was part of his whole strategy. he went after george bush for iraq and argued we should be in afghanistan. is this so explosive, greg? before he argued this was the good war, look back to his record. president obama was never the pro-war guy. i'm just wondering why do it at
all? why continue with a war if you're not interested in war? >> because a lot of it has to do with the fact that people don't trust you. you have to somehow overcome that trust. gates said that president obama was suspicious of the military. it's a two-way street. obama has spent his entire life viewing american power as a flaw, not a benefit. putting him in charge of such power is like putting peta in charge of mcdonald's, and bob you're going to get angry about it, but when your president had a friend who planned to bomb a military officer's place at ft. dix, you can't trust him. gates was kept as a chaperone for the most awkward blind date ever. that was between president obama and our troops. >> who are you talking about? >> bill ayers. >> he was going to bomb -- >> he planned to bomb a military officer at ft. dix. how can you trust somebody who
hangs out with that? >> you shouldn't because that goes to his core ideology and who he surrounds himself. birdses of a feather flock together. >> i have never heard that. >> but it's true. who you associate yourself when, who you agree with, who are you like-minded with? the military would do well to distrust him, and he had distrust of anybody at the command level or higher. that is not a vote of confidence. >> didn't he get gates to stay on? >> that wasn't necessary, in that sense for him. >> not only did he ask gates to stay on. remember when president obama said he was going to do things, like change the way we fight the war on terror. he was going to change the whole intel process once he got in ofce. >> i wish he had. >> he realized, hey, he can't change it. he better keep the infrastructure that george bush put into place, or we're going to open ourselves up to huge risks. >> the other issue, too, is -- >> necessity. >> would prefer to spend most of
his time remaking the domestic agenda. that's what he wanted to do. in a way, the military is sachore you have to do when you would rather play football or watch football. so this is kind of, oh, that's why you see that kind of like, obligation he had. but i do agree with bob. it's okay to worry about these missions. it's when the worry hinders your ability to articulate your goals or galvanize troops. obama can certainly rally students, but he can't rally soldiers. >> he did ask gates to stay on, but robert gateses told hannity there were uncomfortable situations in the room when obama's team began to mock their predecessor. >> admiral mullan and i used to joke, particularly in the first month of the obama administration, where every m t meeting in the situation room, everybody would trash the bush administration and the bush team. what a bunch of bums the bush team were. we're sitting there thinking,
what, are we invisible? we were integral members of the team. >> the administration continues with a lot of president bush's procedures and protocol. >> they did and i'm sorry they did, but this is one voice. this was inexcusive to dump on bush in front of those two. somebody had a lack of judgment on that. >> what about arrogance? >> you could call it, but i'm saying, it's just a matter of course. you don't have two people in the room who are an integral part of the last team and duff on them. >> no class. >> it's insulting in many ways. i'm sorry to hear that. i assume, i'll take gates at his word that that's what happened. i don't know any president who likes war. who likes war? every one who has been president wished it was over. >> maybe needing war as a necessity to get things done instead of sitting back, and i don't know, letting the terrorists rule the world. should gates have spoken up? should he have said something. let me play devil's advocate. he's out here, he but out the
book, but as i understand it, he never stopped and said, i don't want this. he offered his resignation, the president offered h easked mi e stay. i see infighting, but i don't see goals or strategies he laid out to win. >> you mean gates? >> yeah. >> i said this yesterday, people were upset with me for saying this, but the guy -- look, he's secretary of defense. he was the top defender of the country, right? he acted the way he would probably want everyone up and down the chain of command would act. you don't question your superior, you don't call them out. you wait until they're done. my question is the timing of it. could he have waited longer, until president obama was out of office? i'm not sure. >> somebody in the military today while the war is going on, a general, saying this was a lousy idea and it was -- i can't stand this other guy. it doesn't make sense. why gates did this now makes no sense to me. >> to that point, there might
not be people in the government saying that, but there's people in the media, greg, and we talked about this yesterday, talking about war. specifically a writer at salon.com going after the movie "lone survivor." the lone survivor himself was on the kelly file last night. here's what he had to say. >> somebody told me something about pro-war, and i sat and thought about it for a while. is that a real term? because there's nothing glorious about war. i mean, there's not. there's nothing glorious about holding your friends in your arms and watching them die. there's nothing glorious about having to leave your home for six to eight months while your family is back here and you're away. >> bottom line is that there's bad people everywhere, and every now and again, we're going to have to step to them to make sure that we preserve our way of life. and it's people like my teammates and i that have to do that, and the men and women in the military, but there's nothing glorious about it.
there's nothing pro-war. nobody wants war. >> what do you think? >> well, you know, no one goes to see a movie like "lone survivor" and thinks hooray for war. it's like going to titanic and saying, yay, iceberg. i have never met a soldier who was pro-war. they love their comrades, their country, and they detest battle. that's why it's called sacrifice. >> can i point something out? we talked about last night, the left, there are some liberal bloggers who are calling it pro-war propaganda and it's really insulting. marcos latrell point out, you do your job. they don't want to be there. they're doing it because they have a patriotic duty. they're fulfilling that duty, and it really, really is insulting -- >> because they love this country. >> to say this is pro-war propaganda. >> last night, is that because you missed me? you had to fill me in on what happened? >> we did. we also want to fill you in on
this. we didn't talk about this yesterday. kimberly, a senate intelligence committee released a report completely contradicting what the "new york times" said about benghazi. listen to these three revelations. one, they said al qaeda was involved in the benghazi attacks. two, they said that these attacks were preventable based on all the warning signs that this administration didn't heed, and three, they pointed out the failure that president obama has still yet to bring these attackers to justice. i think this is a pretty big deal. >> it's a damning report. and i'm glad it came out. this is, again, what we had been saying from the beginning. even the doubters at the table now see that these are the facts, the evidence, that it was aq-related and involved, and there was an abject failure of leadership by the state department, and that's going to tie in to hillary clinton's problem for 2016. >> i was the first to call it a terrorist act, if you remember, right? >> that's true. >> you didn't tie it to al qaeda. >> i don't tie it to al qaeda. it's a generic al qaeda.
>> but the intelligence committee has erroneous information that came out with the report? >> yes, if they call it al qaeda, it's a generic term. >> it's not al qaeda like it used to be a decade ago. anybody can be radicalized. they have spread into northern africa. this is totally different from what not adjust the administration but the "new york times" has been saying. >> one part of the report that is really interesting is they point to a lack of concern post-attack. that is a direct consequence of the video lie. by pushing the video, you shifted the mission from capture to condemnation. that's the big sin. >> who makes a video? that's what i want to know. >> who pushed the video? >> we need to point out that was an extensive "new york times" piece where every is refuted. just about the whole, everything they put out on that piece, is completely wrong. >> are you surprised? >> here's the problem -- >> they're trying to deny --
>> what's that? >> who in that committee is going to say anything but damning al qaeda. >> now the committee knows less than the "new york times"? >> i'm saying they probably know as much or more, but they don't -- >> general ham, who was there, at the heartbeat of all this, went and while it was happening life was the one testifying. i would take his word more than i would take the word of some writer at the "new york times." >> and we said all of these things right here, as well. we have lot more ahead on "the five,"manifesto from the mastermind of 9/11 makes its way outside of gitmo. that's up next. ♪ wow...look at you.
i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis ifyou have an artificial heart valve abnormal bleing. while taking eliquis, yomay bruise more easily and it m take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines.

propaganda at his prison cell at gitmo. some media outlets have chosen to publish a manifesto where he suggested that muslims now shouldn't use violence to spread islam, but no one should buy his bull, according to andrew mccarthy, who prosecuted him. he's worrying what could happen when messages from terrorists get out. >> this is a guy who is getting his messages out, who is getting his propaganda out. we had the guy i prosecuted, the blind sheikh. bin laden credited him with issuing the fat waw that approved the 9/11 attack from his american prison cell. the guy who killed meyer cohahny in 1990, plotted the 1993 world trade center attack from his prison cell in attica. and we had the 1993 world trade center bombers corresponding with jihadists in madrid implicated in 9/11 and the
attacks there. don't start telling me how competent these guys are who are watching what is going out of the institutions. >> he's right, the messages, instructions, things can be sent out. words of warning to heed? >> this is the deal, this is a 36-page document, but it's one of three documents. he's going to write two more parts. part one, he deals with his religious beliefs, why muslim people should invite people to islam. i'm thinking 747s into buildings isn't very invitational. part two, he talks about whether the war on terror was actually self-defense on their part, and part three, whether there should be a war on terror. very dangerous. i lost friends in those buildings. i think this guy should be locked up, the key should be thrown away. there should be no information coming in or out. he should be in seclusion, without being able to talk to other prisoners in gitmo, let alone writing his 36-page prophecy. >> these are opportunities for
them to further radicalize, then you get out of get mitmo, go to yemen, recruit more jihadists, and there you go, another terrorist plot. >> you seem to miss the whole point of this. he just got a job as a terrorist add the times. he's, of course, a common belief among most of the european media, so it's no surprise. i have a great idea, though. our government should start creating and leaking fake man afestoes. they should have gotten ahead of this and released a ksm manifesto that says all terrorists should stop being homophobes and their religion is really a big waste of time. >> they would kill him, they would try to kill him. >> look, if this could go out, why can't we come up with our own? there's no way you can not prove it. >> why don't you start? >> i did. by the way, rule of thumb, normal people never, ever write
manifestoes. >> you're the one who told me this was a matter of public record? what's the big deal. it's going to be published. who are we kidding? >> i guess it should be who cares? who reports on manifestoes. >> why do we need his 36-page manifesto? does anyone question whether or not he was the mastermind behind 9/11? how about leaving this locked and sealed. >> a couple questions. why is the media like the huffington post and others publishing the manifesto in its entirety. that not exactly responsibility. he's a newsworthy figure. they published the entire thing. they could just publish some quotes, put it in context. they didn't have to do the service of publishing it. also, look, i don't like that we do him the service of pushing out all his mail, but we censor
his mail. my hunch is this administration didn't want to appear like they were censoring his mail, but at the same time, they have no problem censoring that filmmaker and throwing the filmmaker in jail who made this mysterious benghazi excuse. >> can i get back to the point here? it's not a question of whose side they're on. it was a matter of public record. it's not something they did. it was a matter of public record, a court filing. so why in the world can you argue with that? and blame the obama administration for it? if anything, if you don't think that's right, blame the guys in the military not doing a good job. >> when he writes the letter and puts it in the post office box, it gets censored by folks at gitmo. andy mccarthy was saying why does he get to send letters out? >> people in the media will tell you it's a problem. >> it's probably not a good idea if it's not a matter of public matter and part of a legal brief. that's the difference here. >> so leave it out. leave it out of the court case.
leave his manifesto. >> tell that to ingenerals at gitmo. >> i want to play this quick because i think it's important. what the manifesto is. i think it sums it up perfectly. this is last night. >> this is a very smart guy, and what he's doing is he's communicating with his felto jihadis all over the world. this is a gold mine of propaganda coming from the rock star of 9/11, right out from his jail cell. that's how stupid the infidels are in letting this get out, and his attorneys, i have to say, shame on you, major derrick poteet, a marine, an active duty marine. you are a disgrace to your uniform for participating in this. >> who is that woman? >> that sums it up. >> bob. >> coming up, big night tonight.

um... well, it's true. at ally there are no hidden fees. not one. that's nice. no hidden fees, no worries. ally bank. your money needs an ally. all right, according to something called the index of economic freedom, after seven years of decline, seven, america has dropped out of the top ten most economically free countries. we're now the gum smacking angry tard who spends more time texting that thinking. as we louis steam, other countries are moving up. the most improved eastern european stars like estonia, lithuania, and the czech republic. bob loves those places and it's
no secret why. they're running from something, their past. having endures communist hell, that explains their sprint toward the free market, as we race from it. it reminds you of the scene from my favorite movie, the original poseidon adventure when our heroes are seeking one path of escape from the capsized ship as another group confidently heads in the wrong direction and croaks. we're that group, going where they have been, a dead end. why isn't the white house worried? pretty simple. our president took the job to manage this decline, as a way to usher in the always elusive utopian dream. where conservatives see room for improvement, the left, for them, progress requires doom, because after all, their better way is just off in the distance. you might see if if you look backward and squint. it's where the bodies are stacked high. >> i love the sigh after my monologue. >> that was just absolutely ridiculous. >> oh, my gosh.
>> first of all, you're citing a right wing think tank, the american enterprise, the heritage foundation. of all people to be citing as a source. in the back pockets of the republican party, right wing, tea party people. >> do you think the list of the top ten in economic freedom is unrealistic? >> absolutely. >> hong kong number one, singapore. >> hong kong is part of a communist country. >> i know, pretty weird, huh? but they're left alone by china. then singapore, australia. >> i had you stumbling. >> almost did. all right, andrea. >> what's the saying about the blind squirrel? just kidding. i do trust this poll. i believe this poll. you know, the countries you mentioned, also the thing that separates them from us is they actually know their history and they study their history, and they study ours and what we're doing here. and it was also not too long ago that they were suffering at the hands of socialism and communism. i think the biggest thing that
hurts this country is we don't teach history. if you ask most people, they don't know why we left england. they don't know why some guy in boston had his head blown off because he tried to secretly raise the tax on tea. now we have all these lawmakers doing whatever they want, nobody checks them, there's no responsibility. if we don't know why we got here, if we don't know why we fought and died, how are we going to fight for it? >> good point. eric, you know, the gallup poll, 21% of americans, the largest number identified government as it biggest problem facing the nation. turns out they're right. because we're falling behind. >> can i stay in the heritage thing for a second? bob, they took taxes and regulation, specifically regulation, and said where is it most friendly and least friendly to do business on the globe. when president obama took office in 2009, we were number six. we slid every single year, and now we're number 12. >> according to them. >> according to them. just one second, think about
this for one second. do you remember what president obama just before he was elected? if you want to do business in america, as a coal power plant, we will necessarily bankrupt you. that's about as anti-business as you could possibly get. >> anti-american. >> his solution over the next five years, cap and trade. it failed. what did he do? he put balls in the eta and is making it an unfriendly business environment. >> he said that, if you have a coal fire plant, we'll bankrupt you? >> yes. >> i must have missed that. >> anti-american. you're going to try to kill business economy in the u.s. to serve and further your own political goals and green agenda. it's shameful. that's not the principles the country was founded on. now you have seen the poll numbers reflect the growing dissatisfaction at an alarming rate americans feel on the direction the country is going in in overrated, overtaxed, it's all government overreach, and we're not getting more for our
money on this. this is something where the economy is actually suffering. free market is being crippled and given a pair of cement boots. >> let me use -- let me assume for a moment that this right-wing operation is right. that means 1 in americans think government is the problem, or whatever they call that. that's 21%, which is about two points less than the republicans in the country, which i think their lowest ever at 23% or 24%. that means some republicans didn't list government as a problem. >> that's a good point, bob. thank you. >> i want to throw to this little thought of president obama, show you how concerned he is over this. go ahead. >> guns n' roses patience? >> i think it was. i don't like whistling. i don't understand the purpose. why do you whistle?
>> nerves. >> to let people know you're in a room. like or you're -- >> looking at women. >> walking down an alley. you want people to know you're there. it's like a safety mechanism. >> got to roll. they're telling me to shut up with my theories. >> the whistler over here. >> coming up, howard stern is apparently not the only one watching "the five." jon stewart has his eye on our show as well and we'll tell you what we think about what he did, which was kind of awesome, coming up. directly ahead, "duck dynasty" and "american idol" return tonight. you'll see a sneak peek at what the robertson clan has in store for season five. can you call them a family? i don't know. and season 13, a shake-up with the idol crew, next on "the five." my dad has aor afib.brillation, he has the most common kind... ...it's not caused by a heart valve problem. dad, it says your afib puts you at 5 times greater risk of a stroke. that's why i take my warfarin every day.
but it looks like maybe we should ask your doctor about pradaxa. in a clinical trial, pradaxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate)... ...was proven superior to warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke. and unlike warfarin, with no regular blood tests or dietary restrictions. hey thanks for calling my doctor. sure. pradaxa is not for people with artificial heart valves. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke. ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before surgery or a medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleedin don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding or have had a heart valve replaced. seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition or stomach ulcer, take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners... ...or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctors about all medicines you take. pradaxa side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. if you or someone you love has afib not caused by a heart valve problem...
...ask your doctor about reducing the risk of stroke with pradaxa. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. everybody knows that parker. well, did you know auctioneers make bad grocery store clerks? that'll be $23.50. now .75, 23.75, hold 'em. hey now do i hear 23.75? 24! hey 24 dollar, 24 and a quarter, quarter, now half, 24 and a half and .75! 25! now a quarter, hey 26 and a quarter, do you wanna pay now, you wanna do it, 25 and a quarter - sold to the man in the khaki jacket! geico. fifteen minutes could save you... well, you know.

travel home with five bags for a two-day visit. >> use your legs. >> something's not adding up. >> how many bags did you bring? >> good stuff. your thoughts? >> i love them, i think they're fun, great people. we have been lucky enough to have them here at fox, and new year's and stuff they were here for us. i'm excited to watch them tonight. it's a good show. i love all the -- >> it's their daughter. what's wrong with you? >> it's normal, bob. >> it says if we break our old record, i'm sending the whole "the five" a gift. >> that's from willie robertson. >> that's his daughter? >> that's his daughter. >> good looking daughter. >> "duck dynasty." >> i don't watch the show. it's nothing against "duck dynasty." i love willie. i met him. i just haven't watched the show. >> but i think you could do it. >> i love reality television. i love bravo. i love top chef. i love the real housewives i'm a sucker, and i love the bachelor.
i just haven't gotten my remote to the "duck dynasty." >> they had good food, minus the beaver in the kitchen sink. that was a little disturbing. crazy beaver teeth, too. >> you can follow that? >> you watch "duck dynasty"? >> i have to say, i don't watch it. i'm interested in the effect in the entertainment industry these shows have because they eskew all of the liberal bull crap in the other shows and it's nothing relevant to the lives of the people who put the shows out, and it's no longer a novelty, and i like the beards. i think the beards are great because they're not ironic beards, the kind you see on waiters in brooklyn. >> or press secretaries. >>. >> check out "american idol" judge j. lo after a year off, looking great. gave jay leno a preview of the upcoming season. >> you left. what made you come back? >> you know, i just love the show. i really did. it wasn't an easy thing for me to come back with everything i have going on.
i have a spot in my schedule, and with the kids and everything else, i was like, i don't know if i can take it on, but to be honest, i just love it. >> no you're with keith urban and harry connick, who is terrific. >> yes, they're amazing. you guys are going to love -- you know keith already on the show, but you're going to love harry. it's great, the three kind of points of view you get from me and then. >> plus, he won't be stealing your clothes by steven tyler. >> right. >> you're going to be watching. >> kwl love it. >> now i am, for sure. what a good looking woman. isn't she a good looking woman? amazing, and she's puerto rican? >> correct. >> harry connick jr., a fan? >> i hate "american idol." because it encourages singing and convincing people they might have a voice when they don't. there's a lesson. just because no one has told you you can't sing doesn't mean you can sing. your friends should tell you that you can't sing. if no one has told you you can't sing, then you don't have friends. >> then we won't have any funny clips. >> that's 100% right.
the best part of "american idol" is the auditions. >> i predict great ratings for this. they have awesome chemistry if you have seen the clips. fun, i'm in. >> i catch the beginning and end of "idol." i also like "america's got talent" and "the voice." but i have to dime greg out, greg sings every day at like 10 minutes before 6:00. he sings and he says, what am i going to eat? maybe chinese food, i don't know. >> you dumped on "american idol." who signs your paycheck? >> not them. >> i don't know, i don't care. >> people don't know this, but andrea can sing. andrea has a great voice. >> i'm a dancer. i danced for 12 years competitively, i cannot sing. >> we have to go. controversial new show takes us inside the world of extreme youth football. some parents and even the nfl is expressing concern that coaches may be pushing pee-wee players a little too hard. watch this.
>> you stop. you stop right here! don't stop. go with it! >> put your arms around him, put him on the ground. do you understand? >> oh, my gosh. >> not laughing at that. >> no.

why don't they take those lights down? how extreme is too extreme when comes to pushing and motivating our kids. a new show call ed friday night kicks and it is not only the parents that are concerned, nfl is, too. players between the ages of 4 and 13 in texas, take a look. >> you can do this. >> it's hard. >> i know it's hard. it's going to make you stronger. if you quit, you're not going to get stronger. >> you stop! you stop right here. don't stop, use your weight. go with it. i don't care how much pain you're in. you don't quit. >> let's go. hurry up. let's go! >> that is a disgrace. i don't know who that red nick is doing the coaching, but he
ought to be put in jail. >> you want me to go first? >> yeah. >> i don't have a problem with it. >> what? 4-year-old kids being treated like that. >> let me tell you -- >> only in texas could something like that happen. >> i'm going to get, would you want your kid treated that way? yeah, i do. they're not hurting them, not hitting them. >> that's emotionally abusive. that's what that is. >> can i tell you something. you want success or wuszy. the best football in the country comes out of texas and florida. i bet florida has something like that. >> they're not all players from texas, eric. they recruit from all over the country. everybody who plays for texas or one of the schools there isn't from texas. >> fine, if they're doing it in iowa, yrm all for it, too. fine. don't hit the kid, but motivate him. >> i think it's way out of line. i would knock his you know what out. >> were you shunning me for using the word redneck? anyway, he is a redneck. now go ahead. >> very nice, bob.
i think this is salittle harsh, but look, the parents have their kids playing football. a lot of the kids love it. what's the message? don't quit. there's a lot of terrific messages in football. i know they're serious about it down in texas, but football is a tough sport. you have played it. nick saban does not sit in the locker room and go, excuse me, if you could score in the next quarter, that would be great, amazing. it is tough. and it's a team sport, and there's wonderful, wonderful things that come out of football. but there seems to be a war on football in this country. >> nick saban does this with 20-year-old kids. this is a 4-year-old kid. >> okay. >> look how good they are. look at the video. >> yeah, look how good they are. >> it's a little harsh, okay, but they're not dying. >> you know, i think it's disgraceful. i think they should be enrolled in schools for male modeling. it's far more tasteful. look, here's the thing. you got to consider the alternative. last week, there was a tape floating around of a 2-year-old kid in diapers sitting amongst gang leaders while a 16-year-old
mother was sitting in the other room. i like the fact that when kids have parents and paints have an interest in their kids' lives. this may look rough, but it may be out of context, too. you're showing the worst parts. you're not showing the joy or the pleasure. that's why i hate these shows, because i often think that they focus on things, and then putting it on texas, bob, there's so many -- the freak in ohio that killed all those people, that was in cincinnati, the guy who abort eed all the ks who were alive, that was in philadelphia. >> i lived in texas, and i know they're addicted to freiday nigt football and youth football. >> they love it in western pennsylvania, too. >> being yelled at by the mother and pushed around? >> you have never been yelled add by a football coach? >> yes, but i was older, i wasn't 4 years old. i would have been a serial killer if they had done that to me. >> what's wrong with winning? and people are outraged like
little girl jonbenet beauty pageants. >> it's better kids are sitting here when they parents are on the street doing who knows what, and they're unattended? >> that's apples and oranges. this is an organized football league, which is the problem. i hope the nfl or somebody does something about it. one more thing is up next. >> thank you, bob. >> you're welcome. are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this. gimme one, gimme one, gimme one! the power of the "name your price" tool only from progressive.
bob is so disgusting? >> he really is. >> it's time for "one more thing." >> so gross. let's talk about a new story that came up here. marvin gaye's children settle with sony records over robin thick's song, blurred lines. allegation is it was picked off, basically copied, by robin thicke, and that he collaborated with t.i. and pharrell on it. it's up for a ton of awards on the january 26th grammys. so they settled, but they're still suing the family of marvin gaye is suing robin thicke personally. we'll see where that goes, but they got some cash, so the case was dismissed against sony. >> a lot of twerking money. >> yesterday, i told you how howard stern said tfr tf was his favorite show, last night, apparently he has company. jon stewart and stephen colbert,
the colbert report used "the five" as part of their monologues, a couple of their blocks. we want to welcome jon stewart, stephen colbert to "the five" bangwagon along with howard stern. anyone else want to join on? plenty of room for you, too. >> absolutely. >> there will be a response. they talk about us a lot. >> yeah. >> all right, greg. >> speaking of yesterday on the daily show, dana isn't here, so we're going to do -- i think we'll do a monologue tomorrow because she should be here. she's on jury duty, so she can't enjoy this. samantha b., an amazing performer on the daily show, did an unbelievable interpretation of "the five." since dana is not here, lets just show a little piece of it, and there you go. >> in 2011, fox news premiered a novel new show, "the five." it was a panel show at 5:00 with five pundits whose opinions
ranged from wall street conservative to 50-year-old frat boy conservative to george w. bush conservative to conservative to fox liberal. >> so basically, he's addressing our political ideologies as if the daily show has -- is a shining example of political diversity, but still, you have to stick around for tomorrow. i thought it was amazing. >> hilarious. >> probably the funniest thing i have seen. >> really good. >> ripped her heart out. >> dana sent her flowers. >> that was nice. robert. >> okay, this day in history, 40 years ago on this day, happy days premiered on television and brought us the fonz. take a look at this.
>> you know the amazing thing about this? they did this whole show with one camera. amazing. okay. >> is that true? >> yeah. >> i loved that show. i love the love boat. that's very nice, too. and three's company. >> let's just go down memory lane. this is a really sweet story. it talks about the bond of sisters. listen to this, a colorado biathlete has given up her spot on the u.s. olympic team so her twin sister can go to sochi instead. tracy barnes qualified over the weekend just ahead of her sister, lanny barnes, but the team said lanny was sick and only able to compete in one of the four final qualifying races in iterally. she said in honor of our friendship, commitment, and sacrifice, i decline my spot on the team for my sister. as a sister, i loved this story. i think it's so sweet. >> in sochi, it's right near chernobyl. >> are you going to go to sochi?
>> i wouldn't go to sochi if it was the last place on earth -- well, maybe. >> don't forget to set your dvrs so you never miss an episode of "the five." we'll see you back here tomorrow. "special report" next. the verdict on benghazi from a democrat-run senate intel committee. al qaeda groups did it. it could have been prevented, and lot of unanswered questions lead directly to hillary clinton and the white house. this is "special report." good evening. i'm bret baier. for the first time, we're learning tonight that members of two al qaeda terror affiliates were involved in the deadly attack on the u.s. facilities in benghazi, libya, 16 months ago. that is one of the shocking highlights from the senate intelligence committee report released today. its chair, democratic senator dianne feinstein. some of the o
