isil a year ago today. the training mission parent of the president's pledge to ramp up training iraqi force to capitalize on the successful training of almost 9,000 iraqi troops so far. >> near the other training base in anbar the al-assad air base where we have seen iraqi security forces train by coalition force, that have received the benefit of advice and assistance of u.s. military permit, where we have seen the iraqi security forces be effective in it driving out isil. >> the new u.s. troops will be deployed to the air base where iraqis have been gathering in preparation for a counter obvious i have after they fled ramadi last month. the pentagon said that the bulk of the troops are american security forces protecting a

7:22 pm
stress, not racism, that led to the takedown of a teenager in texas. >> he allowed his emotions to get the better of him. >> corporal eric casebolt is in hiding, and the former mckinney officer responded to two cases that friday, a suicide where a man shot himself in front of his family. >> heel felt and believed that it was his many duty to respond. with all that happened that day, he allowed his emotions to get the better of him. >> but there's no excuse for his response said the attorney for the girl on the video. >> to handle the stress, it was clearly in no way. way appropriate. >> she said that 15-year-old damageeria is stressed and not
7:23 pm
sleeping. . >> she's 15, and had like any 15-year-old, she doesn't think there there was much she could have done to avoid the situation. >> he insists that hez not tashing minorities, and that he it detained a white woman who is not seen on the radio. but still they say it's unescapable. >> the actions at the community pool are indefensible. he came into the control out of control. and as the video shows walls out of control during the incident. >> he accepted casebolt's resignation. and they are demanded that casebolt be charged assault. >> a fair investigation in this process. these children were victimized. we need the city of mckinney

to really stand up for the justice for these teens. >> case bolt's attorney said that he has no specific plans for the future. but does know that he possibly faces, david criminal charges. >> thank you very much for the update, we appreciate it. ariba martin joins us this morning, and ar reba, first of all, the fact that according to the police, that officer casebolt responded to two calls, one of which a man blew his head off. >> any charge filed by the district attorney, clearly those incidents may play a role in mitigating any criminal time or jail time that may come out of charges that may bel filed against this officer but it's not playing well in socialle media.
7:25 pm
those people who believe that he was out of control don't seem to be sympathetic to thele calls at the poolerrer party. >> what about officer case bolt, there's information about the 14-year-old girl, that somehow she deserved to be thrown to the it ground, or a white woman at the pool may have started all of this. social media is on fire. >> my first inclination is always to say due process and allow it as such that both sides of the story are told. and everyone has the opportunity to be heard. and cross-examinations to be told. and the facts but that's not how social media works. those constitutional rules those who are in the civil and criminal legal system don't apply to it social media. so what we're seeing on social
7:26 pm
media, people make very quick judgments, and once they reach their conclusions, it's very difficult to change their minds, even when new system facts emerge. >> i learned that there was a white teenager who was responsible for the video of officer casebolt throwing teenagers to the ground. and he said they didn't bother me and they went after african-american kids. the image from that it particular teenager who shot the video how important is that? >> well, i think he raises a really important point david. because again i watched an african-american man who lives in the community saying that he believes that the teenagers were out of control. and believed that the police were doing their job and this was not a racially motivated incident. so i think that it shows the complexity of race issues in this country. we have this white teenager saying look, i saw them targeting my black friends and not bothering me, and then we have an african-american
7:27 pm
man standing up for the police saying that this is not racially motivated and he wanted the police to take actions against all of the teenagers, including the african-american ones. >> the preconceptions of people different from them when there's video that may reinforce what's going on, and yet the video may show one little recall part of something that may be out of context. >> i think that it technology has really changed the game, david, particularly in these police cased. now that everyone has a camera, and everyone recall starts to record the minute that the police arrive on the scene we're watching what used to be played out in courting played out on social media. and we don't have the vantage point, again of coax, cross-examination, and we sent we don't have the opportunity to check the witnesses but all we have are the reactions that people have to these snippets, and it once we have them, we see how
7:28 pm
powerful they are. there are 30,000 people asking the bank of america to fire the white woman who allegedly it made racial slurs that started the entire incident. >> reba, thank you for joining us. >> thanks, david. >> just ahead fighting isil, we learned today an american was killed in syria with a group trying to it defeat isil ill. and ratcheting up an iraqi trainee and equipment. first it was had soda and now it will salt. new york's it city's newest proposal.
7:29 pm
7:30 pm
>> there were several developments today in the fight against isil. the united states state department said a massachusetts man died earlier this month while fighting with kurdish forces in syria. keith bloomfield is the first to die in combat against isil. and president obama sending 450
7:31 pm
more u.s. troops to tir ac to advise and assist iraqi forces in anbar province. meanwhile isil carried on out attacks in two countries today. in libya a power plant. and iraq, a council building 40 miles southwest of baghdad. joining us from washington, mark a deputy in the u.s. state department. thank you for joining us. we have heard a number of u.s. officials today saying that the training of those going is to attract more recruits and localize more forces to iraqis in anbar, and is it true that the confidence has not been high enough. >> well, i think what this is, is a part of a learning process, if i can put it that way. we have seen success elsewhere in western an approximate bar.
7:32 pm
and we have seen it have success in iraq. it is about really mobilizing and giving these local forces as you pointed out the kind of equipment training material that they need to take the fight to isil. >> is there a fear that the reason you don't put boots on the ground is that it would create some sort of dependency that the united states is trying to avoid? >> i don't want to speak to hypothetical. we're not going to put boots on the ground, but what we want to do is crease the capabilities of the iraqi security force. again, this is their fight. and they need to be able to he control their territory and push isil off of the territory that they have gained within iraq and tole ultimately win this. it's the fact that to answer your question, it's about giving them the skilling set or the training, the equipment that they need to win this fight. >> how crucial is it for united states to reduce iraq's
7:33 pm
reliance on the shiite militia in this? >> again i think what we're looking for is a diverse fighting force. this is what the iraqis are looking for and what they have seen elsewhere in the country to mobilize the fighters, and that's a helpful thing. they're looking to ramp up their overall recruits into military. but again, the local forces can play a significant role in that effort. >> the observe administration, the president when he was in germany said that the united states has not yet completed what strategy is for defeating isil and some of that is due to the iraqis themselves. i wonder if you can expand on what did the if administration mean? >> again, the president was pointing to what i already talk billion dollars. which is that we need more recruits in the iraqi military to train and equip. and that's a challenge for the iraqi government. they have to attract more individuals, they have to clean their own ranks and bring up new recruits who can be
7:34 pm
equipped and trained by military advisers on the ground. and what happened today is a distinct effort apart from that, overall from raising the recruitment within the iraqi military. this is about local fighters, giving them the tools and the exeter tice and the advice to take to the battlefield. >> one of the things that the united states has learned along this way to better train the iraqi security forces. >> sure one of the things that we talked about it doesn't matter how many airstrikes you wage, and certainly, we have conducted thousands of airstrikes against isil and they have been very successful in taking fighters off the battlefield but as other u.s. officials have noted, it doesn't matter, you still have foreign fighters coming over to join isil. how we strangle the flow of
7:35 pm
foreign fighters into the fight. and that builds isil's ranks. we're looking at that and the coalition. i think that some 30 countries have straylinged the border legislation to had limit the flow of foreign fighters, and with the iraqi forces, it's about getting them the equipment that they need more quickly to get it to the battlefield. and it's about pulling iraqile soldiers from the front lines to give them the training so they can rotate back with better skills, frankly and better equipment and better material to take the fight to isil. and frankly as we have seen elsewhere, it's about mobile hadlizing the forces to give them the tools and the fight that they need because they have a strong stake. the fight is in their backyards if you will. so we need to mobilize them and give them the confidence that they need to be effective on the battlefield as well. >> mark, thank you for joining
7:36 pm
us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> russia said today it will be maintaining it's counter sanctioning against western nations. over the weekend the leaders of the g7 summit said this they are thinking of imposing new sanctionsening against russia for its involvement in the ukraine. they have banned food imports and said that it will continue, but vladimir putin said that he had hopes that the sanctions will be lifted soon. president putin had an intriguing meeting at the vatican with pope francis. but it may beer more what it represented than what was said. patricia explains. >> david the kremlin wants to show that it doesn't matter if putin isn't he welcomed by the g7 and what better way to demonstrate that than to travel to the recall heart of europe
7:37 pm
with one of the most religious he leaders in the world. putin tem said that he has a sent seer effort to achieve peace. calling oning both sides to for the cease fire, but the important i have has not taken sides. even before putin of touched down in italy this trip was playing well back in russia. >> he had a tremendous amount from the meeting because heocabled out the fact that he was cut out of g7, because it's just a club, but now he's meeting with the pope. and they are it deciding the world's fate. and that's more important. >> this is trip is an opportunity for putin to show his christian be credentials. the russian orthodox church
7:38 pm
filled the vacuum hell left by the collapse of communism in the soviet union and putin has it received on that to show the traditional christian values by for example championing the anti-gay had laws in russia. and he has played the christian participate on the be global stage the castingful himself as a defender of christian communities in the middle east who are under attack by isil and other groups. >> patricia, pope francis is taking a first of its kind it step to end the cover up of priest abuse. hearing a new tribunal sexual abuse case. covering up crimes by priests. he has long wanted to make them more accountable. diane is speaking with the victim's advocates and what's the reaction to this announcement? >> well, david chicago has a
7:39 pm
very large catholic population, and the fact that the archdiocese has paid out $30 million in claims bivictims. i talked to a woman who has a global he network for survivals, and she thinks that the tribunal may be nothing more than a publicity stunt. >> we know that pope france is has complete authority to take whatever action he wants. if he wanted to, he could have sacked any bishop at any time. and he is the boss. no one is higher than him in the church. and the fact that refuses to take any action against any bishops makes ital difficult to believe that something is going to be different now. >> she says that the vatican has not had a very good of history of had policing itself. and she wants to see it turn over records to police and prosecutors. david. >> diane have any bishops been
7:40 pm
removed for knowing about abuse and not reporting it? >> today none have been removed. earlier this year, one bishop was allowed to stem down because he did fail to report a suspected case of abuse. >> dianeest brook, thank you. . >> is postponing the 2026 world cup. he said that it would be nonsense to it start it in the middle of the current bribery it scandal and there are no plans to move them out of russia and capital qatar. internet is supposed to be a tool for everyone, but it remains a it digitalle divide. more than 4 billion people are still off the grilled.
7:41 pm
. >> more than 4 billion people are many connected to the internet. and there are 400,000 new people coming online each day. but the problem is that 40% of the people live in it just three countries china india and to give 1.658% of those on the internet. many of these countries help lack fiber and mobile networks, being making it expensive for people to get internet access. and that's why going to is testing drones and balloons. these flights were flown over the south island of new zealand. they declined an interview with aljazeera. but technology could be cheaper and more flexible than land networks. google's search engine is a powerful force and any control of the infrastructure
7:42 pm
would give the company too much influence. >> we're worried about speed and drones and balloons. these are awesome. but what are they being used for? are the under lying power dynamics changing? or is it a small group of people many exerting their power and he control over a specific group? >> they are looking at drones to enhad internet access in remote areas. >> our plan is to make basic he internet services affordable so everyone with a phone can join the knowledge economy. >> has an app in it countries saying that be it can be acceptanced by a billion people giving them unlimited access to a number of service. one of these is facebook. and it's which it determines which other services could be on the platform.
7:43 pm
>> they're doing it out of their self-interest not guat they're charities, or they believe in al truism, et cetera. they're doing it because having more people online of benefits them. >> google is working to improve wanting strength of the balloons, it's launchle system. and how it can keep them connected during flight. once these issues are solved, google will stale up it's airborne network. the question is whether thele people below will be able to had receive the internet from the sky and it's terms and it conditions. >> new york city has the latest it government that wants to mandate healthier food choices for consumers. ban machines, and transfats from restaurants and it posting the number of calories in the food they it serve and now they're looking to reduce salt inning take in it restaurants. ali velshi has more, and what's this about? >> we shouldn't personalize
7:44 pm
these things, david but it's hard to not think of it as a war on me. wanting chain restaurants, the department voted on wednesday to consider the proposal with a meeting of the board of health. all chain restaurants would have to add a saltshaker like symbol on menus and today contain more than the recommended daily living. this is more than 300 had mill grams of sodium. a teaspoon of the salt. the final vote could come as soon as september and the warnings by december. they already list the number of calories in food items that they it serve and mayor bloomer burgle fought hard to removal soda machines from schools, and he lost the help mandate to prevent people
