9:00 am
in-wash scent boosters. eric: president biden speaking on the synagogue situation in texas. >> i wanted to make sure that we got the word out to synagogues and places of worship that we are not going to tolerate this. we have this capacity to deal with assaults on particularly the anti-semitism that's grown up and so -- and i will be talking with -- put a call into the rabbi, we missed each other on the way up here. rest assured that we are focused, the attorney general is focused on making sure that we deal with these kinds of acts and thank god, thank god we have
9:01 am
such professional fbi as well as the local cooperation i was told was incredible, was seamless, i just wanted to let you know that. okay. >> mr. president, how had the man gotten weapons, a report that he had been in the country for a couple of weeks? >> allegedly. i do not have all of the facts. allegedly, the assertion was he got the weapons on the street. he purchased them when he landed and turns out apparently there were no bombs that we know of that he said that there were bombs he had as well. but he apparently he spent the first night in a homeless shelter. i don't have all the detail yet. i'm reluctant to go into much more detail but allegedly he purchased it on the street. what that means i don't know. whether he purchased from an individual in homeless shelter or homeless community or whether that's because he said he was.
9:02 am
it's hard to tell. i just don't know. >> to ensure that guns are not as available? >> well, it does but it doesn't. what guns are, we should be -- the idea of background checks are critical but you can't stop something like that this if someone is on the street buying something from somebody else on the street except that there's so many guns that have been sold of late it's ridiculous and it's because of the failure of us to focus as hard as we should and as consistent as we should on gun purchases, gun sales, ghost guns and whole range of things that i'm trying to do. >> mr. president, do you know more about the motivations of the person? >> i don't know. there's speculation. i will not get into that. i will have a press conference on wednesday and i will be happy to go into detail of what i know in detail at that time. >> do you know why he targeted that specific synagogue? >> well, no, i don't. i don't think there is sufficient information to know
9:03 am
about why he targeted that synagogue, why he insisted on the release of someone who has been in prison for over ten years, why he was engaged -- why he was using antisemitic and antiisraeli comments. we just don't have enough facts. thank you. eric: that's president biden in philadelphia where he's going to be volunteering at a food bank talking about the synagogue suspect. was that suspect radicalized by american supporters here at home supporters of the so-called lady al-qaeda. they have held rallies in texas, new york, boston, washington to free the raid khalis islamist terrorist and has been killed by law enforcement. investigators are digging into his past trying to determine why he was bent on his cause. did anyone here help him? hello, welcome to fox news live,
9:04 am
i'm eric sean, hi, arthel. >> arthel: the suspect entered shabbat morning service. he took four people hostage including the rabbi. in a lead fbi hostage team jumped into action and almost 11 tense hours later the standoff was over. >> four people who were rescued are not in need of medical attention. are with fbi agents and he did not harm them in any way. eric: dan hoffman will join us with more about the standoff and other potential terror threat that is we face in the country. first team of reporters standing by, mike tobin as the details of
9:05 am
lady al-qaeda, siddiqui, serving her time in nearby federal prison and she apparently inspired this attack. dan springer, kicking things off with us, he's live at colleyville, texas. the mood in dallas, fort worth area is joy and relief. as you can see behind me, the fbi is still inside the congregation. beth israel synagogue processing evidence. it was tense for hours after a man with a gun started ranting during the shabbat service as you said right about this time yesterday which was being live streamed. he claimed that he had bombs and he believed he was going to die. he had four hostages including the rabbi. he said he was the brother of convicted terrorist who was in a federal prison about 20 miles away from is synagogue in fort
9:06 am
worth. he was demanded the release of that prisoner siddiqui. one of the hostages was released. fbi investigators was were in contact. the other hostages ran from the synagogue and fbi armored vehicle got up to the building, there was a loud boom and brief gunfire. all hostages were safe and unhurt. the hostage taker was dead. >> like many hostage situations, those -- the relationship between the negotiators and the hostage taker kind of had flowed and got intense but these negotiators i'm telling you, i'm so proud of them, unbelievable work. >> president biden released a statement saying in part let me be clear to anyone who attends to spread hate, we will stand
9:07 am
against anti-semitism and against the rise of extremism in this country. israeli prime minister netalib bennett put a tweet, i want to thank the law enforcement agencies for their swift reand craigous action that brought the hostages home safely to their loved ones and he also condemned anti-semitism. the fbi knows the identity of the man who took the hostages but they are not releasing it. they are still doing follow-up investigation trying to find out exactly what his motivation was. we know, though, he's not the brother of aafia saddiqui, her lawyer came out condemned the action and not related to her and american islamic relations also condemn the attack yesterday but no relation whatsoever to saddiqui but they are certainly looking at motivation because he was related to her and wanted her
9:08 am
release. eric: we will have more on care support to try to get the lady al-qaeda out of prison in just a second, dan, in colleyville. arthel. arthel: a pakistani neuroscientist serving an 86-year prison sentence in fort worth for shooting at u.s. troops in afghanistan back in 2008. mike tobin, live now with more details. mike. mike: arthel, aafia siddiqui once dubbed as the most dangerous woman in the world. she's divorced, she's educated, in fact, educated in the u.s. and well educated at that. she earned her undergrad at mit and ph.d in neuroscience at brandeis university and after attacks of 911 she took her kids
9:09 am
back to pakistan. she and her husband divorced when she became active with the taliban on the afghan border. she later married the nephew of 9/11 master mind khalid sheikh mohamed. she had a zip drive remarkably while being questioned she got ahold of m4 rival and opened fire on her investigators. convicted for that in 2010 and sentenced to 86 years in u.s. prison. but islamic radicals even more moderate politicians back in pakistan say saddiqui is collateral damage in war of terror by a corrupt u.s. system. she's often the subject of protest in pakistan with demonstrators claiming she was tortured in the u.s. system.
9:10 am
pakistani prime minister khan legs today bring saddiqui and other political prisoners back home. she's in the current medical facility, prison hospital in fort worth, texas near the congregation. beth israel synagogue where people were taken hostage. the fbi said the hostage taker was singularly focused on freeing saddiqui from u.s. prison. arthel: fascinating details. mike tobin, thank you so much. eric. eric: muslim group, council islamic relations raised public campaign to free aafia sidduqui, quote, unacceptable act of evil and the group does stand in solidarity with the jewish community. in fact, the executive director of the dallas fort worth chapter of care condemns what happened calling it wrong, heinous and something that's completely undermining our efforts to get dr. aafia released. take a look at this effect held
9:11 am
by care's chapter two months ago to support her release from federal prison. the facebook event was built as injustice dr. aafia in november. featured care texas leader along with siddiqui's lawyer and linda, there have been rallies held in new york, washington, boston and texas demanding that she be released. in the meantime the standoff in colleyville reminds us that the terrorism is still at home and isis are still major threats and have warned of a potential resurgence after american troops left afghanistan. dan hoffman, served in moscow, iraq and pakistan and fox news contributor. dan, i mean, care austin in their event that they held two months ago, they said, quote, dr. aafia is mother of 3, hold ph.d from brandeis university and serving unjust 86-year sentence for a crime she did not commit. is it possible that this crime
9:12 am
the synagogue was inspired by the global campaign to free her? >> it's certainly possible that he was inspired by that part of the campaign and also remember that isis and al-qaeda have sought to make prisoner exchange where they would offer u.s. citizens whom they were detaining and planning to torture and kill and in return for saddiqui's release. the facts are irrefutable. the fbi put her on most wanted list in 2004. when she was arrested in afghanistan in 2008 as we mentioned, she had plans for mass casualty attacks in new york at the empire state, at the brooklyn bridge. she was sentenced to 86 years in prison for very good reason. the concern about her is her scientific know-how, links and ties to al-qaeda and her deep knowledge of the united states. so she's where she belongs right now and the al-qaeda and isis
9:13 am
terrorists are receiving the kind of, i think, moral support in this case that they don't deserve from those who believe she should be released. eric: she was sentenced and convicted for trying to kill 7 american soldiers and fbi agents by grabbing that machine gun when she was being held. here the sentencing memo which i have. it's unbelievable. they said they found on her two pounds of sodium sionide, she wrote that america is the enemy and something that she wrote -- that she found in her writing, quote, it is better to die while fighting infadels and die and becoming handicap, two pounds of sodium sianide and how can supporters and group say she's an innocent mother of 3, bohoo, she's been framed, it's wrong? >> yeah, well she's put her extremist terrorist goals ahead
9:14 am
of anything, i think, she might have wanted for her children. look, sionide would be part of lethal mass casualty attack. she was clear and present danger and clear facts, irrefutable ones and that's why she was sentenced. again, when the government of pakistan, the prime minister khan he's adding fuel to al-qaeda and isis fire and those who would like to induce her release or cause it through hostage taking which is exactly what al-qaeda and isis have done over the past decade. i think it's important for us, it would be good for the biden administration to issue statement she's not going anywhere, she's where she was sentenced and there's no recourse for her except what's available in our judicial system which in contrast i would emphasize pakistan is free and fair. eric: also reminds us of the threat of radical islamic terrorism. the first radical islamic
9:15 am
terrorist attack, november 5th, 1990, shoots rabbi in new york city. rasheed shoots young student in brooklyn bridge in 1994. in 93 bomb the world trade center. 9/11, on and on. does this remind us that this threat is alive and continues and they want to kill us? >> it does and, listen, if i were still at the cia and i were briefing the president, the white house on this issue i would say that terrorism is still the national security threat with the shortest fuse. i know that we want to focus on china and other domestic priorities but this one is still out there and we have made it worst with chaotic withdrawal from afghanistan which is morphed into a terrorist state. we have done well at effectively targeting al-qaeda and isis senior leadership and a lot of the foot soldiers but the other two element of counterterrorism strategy, that's denying
9:16 am
terrorists ungoverned space and getting to the root cause of terrorism, those things we have not succeeded at and afghanistan is one big piece of ungoverned space. a dish growing threats to our nation and that's a growing concern as well as the fact that you have the ability of extremists to travel to our country or radicalized those here already and the fact that this was a british national reportedly carrying out the hostage taking should be of grave concern to us. eric: siddiqui has supporters here at home taking advantage of america's freedoms to support the convicted radical islamic terrorist. dan hoffman, dan, thank you. >> thank you. eric: arthel. >> the fbi called out the hostage rescue team which is an elite hostage rescue force out of cuanico, virginia, they immediately when the fac called they got on a plane and flew out here. they brought 60 or 70 people
9:17 am
from washington, d.c. to come and help with the situation. the hostage rescue team breached the synagogue. they rescued the 3 hostages and the subject is deceased. arthel: michael miller crediting the fbi for safely rescuing the synagogue hostages after nearly 11-hour standoff. chief miller calling the operation a success saying things could have turned out much worse if not for the close cooperation between local, state and federal law enforcement. jack cambridge, police veteran retired of the nypd's longest standing hostage negotiator and team commander. good to have you with us. as we are listening to the chief there, the first of four hostages, they were released -- was released after almost 6 and a half hours into the standoff and then ten hours and 20 minutes it first started the
9:18 am
fbi's hostage rescue team went in and rescued the other 3 hostages including the rabbi. i mean, it really was unbelievable work, indeed, if you could talk to us, how did they do it. can you talk about technique and do you know how the suspect died? >> sure, i'm speaking in general terms. we don't know exactly what the strategy was that was utilized with the fbi. the fbi is hostage negotiation team and their hostage rescue team as well. they have brought hostage negotiations to all-time level. excellent, i can't say enough about them. so how it would have proceeded, but how they probably would have proceeded is starting out by trying to figure out how do we get to this part of the drama.
9:19 am
entering into a middle of a movie, i like to use the analogy, you don't know how that part of the drama when you walk into the theater started. so what they had to figure out what are the issues and what does this individual hostage -- what is he looking for. why is he doing what he's doing? that comes over a period of time. arthel: right. >> starting to build rapport with the individual in time. they started doing that. they were health carery, they got some pizza figuring out what's going on there and why the individual is doing what he's doing. there's always the concern of maybe perhaps some mental illness involved as well. maybe he wanted to get 15 minutes of fame. arthel: right.
9:20 am
>> trying to understand why we are here today. arthel: thank you. and while we were -- eric and i were covering the standoff that was breaking yesterday, one of our experts said it was important to listen to the now deceased suspect, even telling him that his life matters so not to trigger him as he could have been well been watching life coverage and expound on that tactic for us. >> yeah, so the reason that you probably did not receive a whole lot of information from the police and have not to this point is because the hostage is watching. he probably had -- news networks including fox news and he's getting all of this information from the media including when you talk to so-called subject matter experts, their thoughts on how the police might be proceeding. so he's looking into this and
9:21 am
one of the problems that the police have in hostage situation with the media is they do try to contain -- >> arthel: jack, excuse me. i want to hold you over after the break. i have to take a hard break and we will talk to you? just a moment. stick around. thanks, ast.

9:25 am
arthel: we are back with jack, jack is a 34-year-old police veteran who retired at the nypd longest standing negotiation team commander. jack, so this investigation is now global. how might that be carried out, who gets involved now and what pieces of information will investigators try to string together? jack: the fbi will take a lead in this because it's terrorist related. the synagogue is involved. it's a very sensitive issue and they negotiators as i understand it. they'll probably take the lead in the investigation but a lot of the background going to the police agency that was involved as well, so i think that's how -- in the coming days and weeks, a lot of information will be forthcoming. arthel: do you think they'll be using this standoff to review and perhaps upgrade or just, you know, confirm what they've been doing all along?
9:26 am
>> oh, yeah, i would hope so. in fact, i would love to get that information myself. on friday evening this past friday evening i returned from texas, allen, texas, negotiators out in the allen, texas area. i would love to have the information to review to teach investigators the lessons learned. maybe things that we didn't like or they didn't like as well and just use that it as a teaching tool. arthel: absolutely. you don't know how the suspect in the case died? do you have that information by any chance? >> don't know the exact details. it sounds like it was possible intervention, they went in and either he killed himself or the team -- >> arthel: those details will come out. retired nypd hostage negotiator
9:27 am
jack, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. eric: at the top of the hour we heard from president biden talking about the texas synagogue suspect who apparently flew from britain here to texas to try and carry out what he did. we will hear a lot more from the president on wednesday. that's when he will be holding a news conference which happens to be one day before he marks one year in office. the president of the democrats are trying to regroup after a week of big policy setbacks. time seems to be running out on his agenda to get it past before the midterm election shift into high gear later this year. lucas tomlinson in wilmington, delaware where the president has been spending the weekend except for just going out to philly for his volunteering this afternoon. hi, lucas. lucas: good afternoon, eric. on fox news sunday a position researcher at brown university says the biden administration needs to stop all of the confusing guidance when it comes to covid.
9:28 am
>> the white house needs to get its messaging discipline together. needs to make sure that people are speaking from the same page. my sense it's not happening consistently and enormously helpful to the american people if the messaging was more consistent. >> to recap what some are calling the week from hell, talks failed with russia, the supreme court said the vaccine mandate for large companies was illegal. the biden's trip to georgia and capitol hill failed to get voting rights passes and no changes to the filibuster despite the president's best efforts. poll numbers the lowest since last year. now 33% going underwater for the first time following the withdrawal from afghanistan paving the way for the taliban to take over for the first time in 20 years. on the economy the president polling 34%, foreign policy, 35% and handling of the coronavirus pandemic just 39% following record setting number of cases, mitt romney says this wasn't a bad week but a bad year.
9:29 am
>> he's had a bad year. he's had 52 weeks of bad weeks. i mean, people are 7% poorer now because of biden inflation. gasoline prices are what 50% higher than they were when he took office. the border is a mess. covid was resurgent, he didn't have in place the tests people needed to keep themselves safe and then, of course, the disaster in afghanistan, russia is now threatening ukraine. >> and wednesday also marched press conference, americans to go get covid test and expect shift in 7 to 12 days. arthel: if you have been to the super market you no doubt saw higher prices and in some places bare shelves. what's behind the double whammy and will it stop?

9:34 am
facing weeks of criticism over policy this comes as the city continues to see more brutal crime including a deadly random attack in a time square subway station. bryan llenas live in new york city newsroom with more, bryan. reporter: arthel, it took two years eric adams tenure to make clear. murders up 33%, robberies up 25%, shooting incidents up 15%, auto grand larsening. bragg says goals to lower incarceration and recidivism and
9:35 am
bragg is stopping prosecutions for crimes like marijuana offenses and resisting arrests. he's downgrading felonies to misdemeanors for crimes like armed robberies and he's limiting jail time for basically homicides and serious domestic violence and sex offenses. this morning black church in harlem reiterated he knows what he's doing. >> i turned 21 and had semiautomatic weapon to my head. homicide victim on my doorstep and was shot at. i know public safety. we know public safety. >> the pressure is onto get crime right. yesterday morning a woman was randomly murdered when she was pushed onto an oncoming train in time square by a deranged man, second such incident in time square since november.
9:36 am
he had four prior arrests, arthel, including possession of a weapon, a knife. arthel: the woman pushed onto subway tracks, art of anti-asian hate crimes and across the country. bryan llenas, thank you. eric: you may find higher prices and low supplies. some of us are finding when we go shopping. the price of beef, pork, chicken and eggs all up 10% or more they say. baked goods, they are going up too. the stuff that makes it to the store shelves, the omicron surge has worsened the supply chain and worker shortage. store clerks, truck drivers are calling out sick. here is how the ceo of wal-mart william simon describes it. >> it's very difficult for them to get their product on the
9:37 am
market right now because transportation is also an issue. we have backup at the ports and we have rising wages and we have, you know, all kinds of things that are happening that are really just pushing upward pressure on prices. so we have this sort of double whammy happening. eric: joins us now committee chairman for the texas corn producers association. so dean, when do you we will get a break? >> eventually prices will decline. one of the things that always happen. agricultural products are cyclical in nature. the farmers and ranchers are facing inflation as well. everything that we buy to produce a crop has gone up in price and so one thing -- one specific input fertilizer has gone up exponentially in the last two years and i will give you a farm example, my farm.
9:38 am
in 2020 to grow an acre of corn it cost me $121 for fertilizer. in 2022, based on what i've already spent and what i will put on the crop the spring and summer during the growing season, it's going to cost me $292. that's a 241% increase in the price of fertilizer. eric: you have to pay in order for you to make a profit. >> well, it's important to note that farmers don't set the market. demand for food has increased dramatically in the past years. corn prices have gone up 33% since 2020 but again compare that against the 241% increase in cost of fertilizer, that's
9:39 am
just not something that's sustainable. >> yeah, and some places i might have gone to the supermarket and it's pretty full that they'll have sporadic items that you can't find. here is the white house press secretary jen psaki saying that the administration has been addressing this, here she is. >> the president has spoken to the fact that cost for americans and the squeeze it puts on americans is a top concern for him and that's why he put in place a supply chain task force, why we prioritized taking steps including having a port tsar and including there's more truckers on the road to ensure there are more goods moving and more goods on the shelves and we have made a lot of progress in that regard. eric: do you think the progress will be enough and we will stop talking about the supply chain, we don't have to hear about it in a few months from now? >> yes, the supply chain is important to note that farmers
9:40 am
all through this deal of this pandemic of covid, farmers and rampers continue to produce. we go to work every day. we produce crops, we produce livestock, poultry and so the product is out there in the country side and if there are supply chain issues, they happened after it leaves the farm and that's one thing we are going to continue to do is continue to produce. that's what our ranchers, that's what we do, is continue on ensuring that this -- that the united states has a safe and affordable supply food. i think it just ponts out how important it is that we have food insecurity in the country. our food is not sitting on a ship outside of the port of los angeles or outside of the port of houston waiting to be unloaded. eric: you know, comes from western ranching family which i do, i thank all the ranchers and
9:41 am
farmers. big shout-out for their continuing to do their work during covid. devon of the texas corn. keep on growing the corn, d, please and keep on doing it. thank you. >> glad to. eric: arthel. arthel: breaking news right now the fbi has released the identity of the suspect in the colleyville hostage standoff. he's 44-year-old malik acram, a british citizen, she was shot and killed by the fbi hostage rescue team more than 12 hours into the standoff. akram took four people hostage including the rabbi as he called for the release of aafia of aafa

9:47 am
it? >> good afternoon, arthel. thank you for having me and i'm pleased to talk about my incredible students. the first thing to know that we were given restrictions from the department of education as to how the funds could be used but we are not able to dictate to the students how they will use the funds but we basically calculated a cost of living in nashville, the amount of debt that our students took out and emergency loans and some other consideration and we decided based on that algorithm that we developed that $10,000 was the appropriate amendment and i want to point out that my students are all professional graduate students so they are more mature and older than undergraduates are and they are quite responsible so most of them used them to pay off emergency loans, cover overdue rents and things like that, so i was really happy to support our students because as you say they have stood up and played a really important role and response to covid-19 here in nashville. but it's just part of our dna to who we are and what we do so i
9:48 am
was really pleased to support them. arthel: yes, we know about the dna there and partly because hbcu's have less money for scholarship students at hbcu's rely more on student loans than white institutions, dr. hildreth i want to break down some numbers, 80% of students borrow money to attend college, 55% student borrowers at none hbcu's, a quarter of hbcu's have loan of $40,000 or more compared to 6% of nonhbcu students and there's difference of average median loan debt of $12,000. meanwhile all colleges and universities received allotments under the care act but, again, hbcu's have funneled the money directly to the students and again yours is a no strings attached and you ask that they use the money to be good
9:49 am
stewards and you pointed out that the graduate students said they are very responsible. what's some of the feedback that you've gotten from some of the students? >> clearly the students were overjoyed and many of them didn't quite know how they were going to deal with the emergency loans and other considerations that they had and so i think for many of them they were so grateful for this grant from the department of education and that's really what it is, it's the emergency grant of the student to help them deal with the challenges posed by covid-19. and as you pointed out, black students at hbcu's tend to have much higher debt than student at predominantly white institutions both medical students and dental students it's even worse because the average cost of attendance of a medical student for four years is almost 400,000 and for a dental student is more than that. medical students and dental
9:50 am
students graduate with that amount of debt, 300,000 to $400,000 in debt. they have to pay off when they graduate from our institution. we just felt that whatever we could do to relieve that burden was going to be a good thing for the students. let me point out that -- >> arthel: really quickly, sir. >> 80% of them go onto serve the underserved whether they are medical or dental, so we believe that investing in these students is investing in these communities that they are going to serve when they leave us. i was really excited to support our students. >> i'm so glad that you pointed that out. you do a terrific work and that's why i wanted to have you onto do the story. dr. hildreth, thank you very much for joining us. thank you, sir. >> thank you so much. arthel: all right, we will be right back.
