10:08 pm
of now unidentified. >> senior military officer in the united states has just come before congress and said, this is a mistake. this is not going to go well. and do not foresee any circumstances where this will be a success. listing five options on various levels of military involvement, and in eh one of them he had major caution on wh should happen. if that is not a red flag to somebody, don't know what is. lou: what is the interest of the republican party, particularly in specifically senator john mccain in driving this agenda to intervene in syria talking about no-fly zones, intervening as if he is the world's leading authority on u.s. interest in the middl east. >> i have a lot of respect for senator mccain, but in this he is absolutely wrong. the militarhas said this is not going to work out well. seenhe example of libya where@ we d our rebels, we get into a war for the rebels. the same time you see what happens to the weapo that we
10:09 pm
gave. they turned around and were used agains us. they're is a cardinal rule in washington. number one, you know, if you have two enemies fighting each other, do not step in the middle and dresd up. you have the syrian government which is a murderous and chemical weapons using and the rebels. the predominance strong this groupre terrorists affiliated. they be headed a catholic priest. ere are others are well aning and secular and good guys, but they're not going to n. that is, in fac, the ultimate problem. we may like our rebels, but they won't -- lou: it is one thing to have failed and waylaid efforts that foreign policy in the middle east it is quite another to accumulate the number of outright reversals and failures that this administration has now managed to put forward. why is there any view in the
10:10 pm
part of mccain or any oth republican that this is an administration that would be wise and effective in syria? particularly after two years of your bombast about removing the er. >> there was an option to years ago about arming the good rebels and those given rebels would predominate. that option is long since gone. if you look at the various issues, a libyan war did not turn out well. a year ago we were told they were on the rooes, finished. there are now there. they are in syria. in parts of africa that it was never an befe. it's on the rise it. lou: and have just gone from prison 500- an estimated 500 terrorists from of low-grade and another present that we don't know the number set free there.
10:11 pm
this is becoming a very -- i cannot even tell you the frustration that think tt we are so stud as to permit this to happen. and this adminisation has not been held accountable. in fact, john mccain steps up like it's a clean slate for him. the republican party is acting as if john mccain is a rational actor in this place. >> we have to spend ten years, over a trillion dollars. we have lost countless american lives and the countless americans that will carry the war wounds for the rest of their days. we have not had a success. we have not had a success. we have not had a success and libya. why anyone thinks it will go into the middle of the syrian morehich even the chaman of the joint chiefs of staff says is not going to be a success. why we would even think of doing and i do not understand. lou: and the calamity and is being driven by a broad based coalition within the republican
10:12 pm
party, speaker of the house said the effort to help the right set of rebels in syria is in our nation's best interest. your reaction? >> sure it is double what does that mean? a we willing to do what it takes the chairman of the joint chiefs told you would taka lge military commient. boots on the ground. the american people don't wa that. short, it ght be a great thing to have appen, but that is not an option available. u: general dempsey is being wise a offering words of constraint and good counsel to the president a the senate if they wl only listen. this is a senator mccain's py. he says he is putting a hold on his nomination. and dempsey has just how smart it in, and i have to believe that senor mccain is smarting fromhat the chairman of the joint chiefs did today which is, make it, as you said, clear as crystal that the united states has no interest in intervening.
10:13 pm
>> let's go back to 2003 when the chief of staff of the army came forward and said, this is what it is going to take to win. everybodyaid, oh, no. weon't need that many troops. we are going to b welcomed as liberators and we go. what happened? it was a disaster. we now have military people telling you the same thing. and in stark terms telling you what the consequenceces are goig to be if we go ahead with this. yet, as you say, there are plenty of people on both sides of the aisle and say, you know, let's get going. it will not end well. he's on recor as saying, don't blame me. i told you so. lou: in fairness to what happened in 2003, the analysis carried out a successful invasion and did so with fewer troops than anyone ever imagined. i think we have to say secretary rumsfeld had that one white. was not correct, what would follow on. obviously for years. but the first -- the iasion.
10:14 pm
>> i was phenomenal. but then what comes next. that is again what he warned. if you have a collapse of the syrian government you don't know what comes next. it could be an extremist government. lou: we know that this administration has a lou track record in affecting policy in the middle east. thank you vvry much. appreciate it. much more later on the obama shift on syria and the congress that seems willing too along with it. what are the republicans thinking? stephen hays, mercedes joins us in the "a-team" next. ♪ it is hard sometimes to keep track of all of the obama white house scandals. the justice department, the internal revenue service, the state department, and now an algedrongdoing at the department of homeland security, newly obtained documents showing homeland security acting inspector general charles

10:19 pm
lou: wall street stocks finishinglat, mixed after a bead of earnings and the weak regional report. the dow climbing 22 points. another record high. the s&p down three, the nasdaq lost 201. bill of -- gol fell $2 selling at 1335 per ounce. cre oil up 29 selling about $107 per barrel. domestic oil production, we will talk about that now. continues to grow. the western states, a dramac increase in production
10:20 pm
since 2010 oil produion has incrsed 64% in colorado. 51 percent in oklaha. 46 percent to new mexico. 45 percent in utah, 23 percent in wyoming. now, why are we talking about those states? those states and their prodtion rival that of the balkan field in north dakota. despite the increase and the production, gas prices are rising. you probay know that already. the national average n $3.67, up $0.20 higher than one year ago. joining me now, president and ceo of the american petroum institute, jack girard. great to have you with this. >> good to be on again. lou: let's start with that incredible oil production. watching. we are -- it is pretty clear based on what is happening with all of the new discoverieses oi, gas, shale. this is a true renaissance in energy for the united stes.
10:21 pm
>> it really is. it is actually quite remarkable. five or six years ago no one would have predicted this. and now today because of our modern techniques, the vast resources that we haveound here in the united states, we are now the world's number one natural gas produr. the international int -- energy agency predicted a few mont a that if we keep this up, if we keep the growth of production of we could become the world's number one oil producer in seven short years. so like you say, i it is a renaissance, it is a big deal. we a putting people to work, generating revenue to state and federal government and perhaps equally important, we are becoming morenergy secure as a nation. we have ried today on only 40 percent of imports where just two years ago that was abt 60%. so we a going in the right direction. we just have to keep going and make sure that the policies are righto allow us to produce our own energy.
10:22 pm
lou: everyone watching and listening, i am sharing you want produce, produce, produce. but i am also saying, why in the world am i paying these research and gasoline prices. i mean, we are doing all ofhis and what is the deal. as a consumer wants to break. >> we could not agreeore. a couple of reasons. the cost of gasoline is determined primarily by two key factors. the first is the cost of crude oil. as youust mentioned, the cost has been going up. trading on the global market. the unrest, particularly in the middle east, places like egypt, 4 million barrels per day coming through thsuez canal. people are concerned and they are gettibout what happens if that gets cut off. the other piece we should look our gas taxes. a lot of peopl don't reali i sometates and the u.s. today, theas tax is over $0.60 per gallon.
10:23 pm
there has been a number of states that increased the gas tax very recently. lou: fair enough. we a using a lot of time. why in the world if we are increasing production and that of oil going to our refiners is coming out of dulles as you just pointed out, 20 percent more coming from domestic production that certainly two years ago. there are loong at prices well. they will have to give us a break here because, you know, i don't want to get charged. >> understand. again, we need tgo back to that global ctor where the price is determined. lou: you are talking backs. i am telling you, i am a consumer and i want a break, particularly when it is our oil being pulled out and produced and refined into gasine. i want to ask you very quickly. we are in real troue on time.
10:24 pm
keep testified at the house energy and subcommittee on the renewable fuel standard. why is congress trying to drive his forward right now? >> this is another factor that some believe h has contributed o the increase in gas prices. what happened in 2007, congress said we had to blend eanol and all the gasoline d we produced now the volumes that they require, this year it will exceed 10%. our cs and pickup tcks are only qualified and allowed to use up to 10%. so of the producers have said that they will not warranty cars if we use over 10%. we -- the congress will make us blend more than that. some believehat is what is pushing up the price for hping bolster the price. lou: surely the republican party will not go along with that kind
10:25 pm
of ignorance. >> well, we cerinly hopeo. it was intesting. was surprised because some her republicans were saying, we just have tfindiddle ground. we need to keep pushing this corn based ethanol. lou: tell that to your engine. >> yes, of the manufacturers say we want warranty those cars. we are in a position to have to decide if we're going to produce fuel are not, particularly fuel that will not be used in autos because it will void the warranty. so we are in a real quandary. some believe that this was pushing the gas price up even further. lou: another culprit that you and i can talk about how we will just the price downward over a couple of months. always good to talk with you. thank you. >> good to visitith you. thank you. lou: coming up next, preside of lomas said to make this pivot. it is exciting. in the next choctaw quite a president has been a little distracted from tackling our
