think doesn't get the credit he deserves for getting as much done -- [ applause ] in our country. hasis implacable wall of hostility from the republicans. >> tomorrow there are three democratic contests. washington state, hawaii and alaska. and clinton isn't campaigning at all in any of those states today. but bernie sanders is. courting voters and calling for an investigation into the hours-long lines seen at some polling places tuesday. >> if there is a large voter turnout tomorrow in washington, i think we'll do just fine. >> sanders is expected to do well. but none of the states are winners take all. it will be tough to make it close to clinton. but that will give partygoers not to carry they will out.

week, including, we believe, haji imam who was an isil leader, a senior leader, the removal of this isil leader will hamper the organization's ability to conduct operations, both inside and outside of iraq and syria. >> i think there are a lot of reasons for us to be optimistic about the next several months. by no means would i say that we're about to break the back of isil or the fight is over. >> they are talking about the apparent death of a high official. goes by one of the aliases he was using, haji imam. let's talk about it with our panel. the senior editor. the usa columnist and charles krauthammer. the administration has taken a lot of heat and criticism for not doing enough to take out isis. >> it is necessary but not
sufficient. i think we're all in favor of killing as much of isis leadership as possible. at the same time we've been pursuing this policy of decapitation of terrorist organizations like al qaeda, like isis for a very long time. in that time the war on terror has gotten worse on president obama's watch. of late, president obama has made it clear. one of the reasons why. he thinks that terrorism is something you maintain and tolerate rather than commit yourself to fighting. he in this jeffrey goldberg interview with the atlantic, it is reported that he likes to walk around the west wing saying more people die in their bathtubs than die from terrorism. if that lodgic is to be taken seriously, i'm waiting for the global war on bathtubs. but it is not to be taken seriously. it is a way to diminish a metastasizing problem. it is all great but not nearly sufficient. >> he said this week that isis is his top priority. so fair to say that he is not
taking it seriously enough? no. i don't think so. i think what republicans say and they continual to say even after the strategy is that he doesn't have a strategy. that's not true. he has a strategy. it may an strategy that you dome like but taking out the leaders, this number two this week. according to the study of war, isis has lost 40% of the territory in iraq. that's not nothing. that's not doing nothing. so i think the administration does feel they have a strategy and that it is. and i have to say, there are plenty of very smart analysts whether you agree or not, that we will have to learn to live with some. a terrorism. people may not like it but that's something that, in the interim as you try to fight isis. this will be a reality. >> is that the new normal?
>> well, the question is what level will it be at? there was terrorism before isis and before al qaeda. we've lived with a level. for example, the israelis have lived with it now for almost 60 years and have adapted. i don't think we have to. i do think it can be diminished to the point where it is a nuisance. the tempo and the scope of the operations has increased. that's the reason it is worse. let me say a word about the decapitation. i think it is a good thing you want to kill these guys. i don't think the removal of senior people is important in and of itself. because particularly in religious organizations, they are replaced instantly. what is important is the fact we had this guy surrounded. all of a sudden out of nowhere in the middle of the desert. which tells them we know where they are. which suggests they have been infiltrate.
and as the israelis discovered with hamas, when they started pick off their leaders with drones, at least it was tremendous internal suspicion. looking for moles. disruption hiding and disorganization. so i think its effects organizationally are more than moving a guy. everybody is looking around to see who is an enemy. in the end, the strategy of shrinking the territory is the right one. the question is, is obama devoting enough resources and doing it quickly enough? i think his strategy is, shrink them a bit. contain them and look at the next guy. him being in cuba, argentina, the dance there which they said he resisted multiple times before he got dragged into it. i want to talk about what kerry that about the optics about it.
>> the president every day is making additions with regard to dash and with respect to the war. he has to also ten to be president of the united states and do what we need to do with respect to diplomacy. which is an important part of building. the kind of future the people in america want to see. >> we know he has access to information and breaking 24 hours a day no matter where he is. >> yeah. i still agree entirely with keers 10. you have to tolerate some level of terrorism. at the same time, this has been a pattern of seven years now. after every attack on our soil. they take days to acknowledge it is jihadi terrorism. they try to say it was workplace violence like the ft. hood shooter. this is part of an ideological scheme where thinks that
actually picking a fight on us. the real threat is that the american people will get too angry of islam. which is why we have to have the back lash of islam even while they're still mopping up the blood. it is an ideological approach to terror that said what george bush did was irrational and bad. we'll treat this as a minor problem and bad. he may not like the strategy he's playing at. ted cruz had this to say. >> as commander in. it is to utterly destroy them. through overpowering air powerful we will do that through
carpet bombing. through articling the kurds on the ground, who are fighting sosa now. ? carpet bombing is essentially a war crime. the fact that he tens to say this. the idea that is our sat, we used to tdo it. we don't need it anymore. that's very high level we'll destroy it. to suggest that is more of a strategy than what barack obama is doing doesn't really add up. especially because he's doing exactly what ted cruz. . they have a done 10,000 air strikes. that's a lot of air strikes. a lot of bombing. >> can i say a word about being pressured into the tango? i mean, of all the excuses.
if nancy reagan would have said, just say no. what is the secret service for? not to tackle and badger. and it does explain why we gave away everything in the iranian nuclear negotiations. the guy can't stand up to a tango dancer. how is he going to stand up to the mullahs? >> i feel like that's going viral from charles. we'll stick around and see. i'll be watching twitter.

you don't see that every day. introducing wifi pro, wifi that helps grow your business. comcast business. built for business. this national enquirer story is drawer garbage it is complete and utter lies. it is a tabloid smear. and it is a smear that has come from donald trump and his henchmen. >> senator cruz there referring to a national enquirer story that really has no source. using the word supposedly and allegedly numerous times. but claiming that there are investigations into whether or not he had mistresses. you heard his complete denial there. here is whatd< trump said whether he was involved. he says, quote, i have no idea whether the cover story about ted cruz in this week's issue of the national enquirer is true or not but i had absolutely nothing to do with it did not know
about itg8 yet, read it. >> charles, is this a new level of conversation in our political discourse? >> you mean a new low, answer, yes. i do think it's politically important. at the end of the day, one of these men is going to be the nominee. the other is going to be the runner-up. if you go back to say 1980 to kennedy and carter, they could hate each other in the end they make up and they europe night the party and they stand on the podium holding hands. i can't see that happening now after this episode. >> kirsten, your take on this? because both sides are making complete andcñ utter denials. if you read the piece there is no concrete sourcing in there one of the women has come forward to say totally not true. nothing to it. >> if the trump organization was behind it, it was particularly diabolical because one of the people he is alleged to have had an affair with is trump's spokesperson. >> which she completely denies. >> had to plant a story about one of their spokes people. we don't know what happened here. i think generally speaking
bill clinton people look the other way. if ted cruz was true it would be big deal because he is evangelical candidate. >> may be more important to voters? >> he well, of course, yes. i also think part of the mob is it feeds into this building narrative that somehow both of these guys sunk to new lows attacking each other's wives which is unfair to ted cruz who did not attack melania trump and did not engage in that. one-sided from the trump campaign. with that said, personally i'm skeptical that thepl@&c @&c@ enquirer story is true and, in part i think and i don't think that the trump campaign necessarily asked the inquirier to do anything. that doesn't mean the enquirer didn't do it for them. they have been carrying more water for trump for a long time. >> they did endorse him. >> yes. >> doesn't mean report something absolutely false. >> they have attacked all
the other candidates. they have attacked ben carson and jeb bush. they have never attacked donald trump because donald trump is friends with the ceo of national inentirier. >> let's quickly move next topic in lightning round. questions whether or not former secretary of state clinton took necessary security briefings on her emails had she was serving as secretary. here a bit of the back and forth on that today. >> the fact that mrs. clinton and her top aides didn't bother to take the training necessary under law to handle classified information suggest they didn't really care about what the rules were about handling and protecting that classified information. >> so, i just simply don't have any information about whether she may have missed a cyber briefing. it's my understanding that secretary of state, everybody in this building would receive thatdm kind of of -- that type of training and awareness. >> quickly, charles, does it
matter? >> no. the email stuff is a big deal but skipping a briefing is not. >> a.b.? >> also. the other thing is they may have have known. they probably had basic understanding of how to handle it in theory. you know they didn't necessarily -- the email server probably showed the best judgment but i don't think it's a big deal. >> the much bigger news is we now know that her story that she started using this now know she basically came into office planning to avoid and skirt foia and other things it was always her plan. that was one of the last lies that had not been disproven and i think this is setting her up in even more trouble. >> all right, start with you on this week's winners and losers, what have you got for us? >> the losers are the freedom fighters and political dissidents including the ladies in white in cuba who were, at best, an after thought in triviality to barack obama in his bucket list switch trip to cuba. the winner is bringston and
other members of the wagbrigade at the san francisco airport whose only job to make people happy by letting people pet them. as an advocate. >>v love it? >> i'm an advocate for introducing more dogs through the western civillation. >> kirsten. >> g.o.p. polling how gallup polling democratic process. big dip from g.o.p. voters. democrats have stayed pretty much the same. they are pretty happy with things. and sticking with the dog theme, my winner is in hartford, connecticut, there was the media is the winner. i can't believe i'm saying this. and there is was going to have to put down these dogs and the media covered it and all the dogs got homes. >> love it, charles? >> winner raoul castro. loser the tango until wednesday was associated with mystery elegance, romance, and evenerrer
women make less money than men? >> i think because they are very underrated. they can do more but people expect them to do less. >> do you think women are not as good at jobs than men? >> they are very good and they work all the time like my mom. >> what about men? >> they work, too. >> who works harder? >> >> mom. >> because men work harder. >> harder in like real estate and other jobs. >> how do you know that? >> because my dad's a real estate agent. >> why do you think women make less money than men for the same job? >> >> i don't know. the world is just a messed up place.rz >> so cute. and i love the one who he knows because his dad is in real estate. >> wise beyond their years. all right. thanks so much for watching "special report." i'm shannon bream. good night from washington.
