9:00 am
every movie star has some obligation to promote. >> there's a lot of promotion going on right now. the news stories are promotion. we're flat out of time. thank you for watching. "around the world" is next. welcome to "around the world." i'm suzanne malveaux. >> i'm michael holmes. >> e ward snowden is on the mooefr. the obama administration is not happy about that. we're expecting to hear from the white house at any moment. we'll take you there live. >> edward snowden is on the run across the globe trying to avoid prosecution. earlier today he was in moscow. he was expected to board a flight to cuba. it's not clear if he did or if he is on that plane.
9:01 am
he began his global odyssey in hong kong. >> the u.s., of course, wants to extradite him. they want him to face espionage charges. he's trying to get asylum in equador and other places. the request is being considered on a human rights bases and we just learned from wikileakss that he's applied for asylum in iceland. assange has been living in london for a year or so avoiding sexual assault allegations he faces in sweden. he talked about snowden and the u.s. efforts to go after him. >> the charging of edward
9:02 am
snowden is not matter of justice. it is an attempt to intimidate any country that might be considering standing up for his rights to tell us all the truth. >> it blamed that snowden is on a flight to cuba. cuba another country that may be helping out snowden. he's expected to show up there today if he's on the plane. our own crew didn't see him. who knows. >> we're not exactly sure. he was supposed to travel through u.s. air space to get there. julian assange says he knows where snowden is but he's not telling. it's cat and mouse game. there's a lot going on today. i want to bring in our power players.
9:03 am
first of all, what do we know about his location whether or not he is in in fact on this plane to moscow and how is the u.s. tracking him? >> i don't think we don't know very much about where he is. he wasn't on that plane. the best information i've gotten is he was not on the plane which mea means he's probably still in moscow. you have to go back to the cold war to figure this out is through some kind of quid pro quo. in the old days when this was routine, we know these are the things you want from us, people, sometimes in information. we'll give you this in return for getting him. i'm not sure how vital edward snowden is.
9:04 am
the united states government would like him very much but this is not some kind of super secret spy with access to enormous amounts of classify information. he may have already told or leaked what he knows. that is what washington is trying to figure out. how many concessions do they want to make. >> there's only one state run newspaper in china said snowden has uncovered the inside story of the u.s. countries that like to poke the u.s. in the eye, if they can. aren't they doing precisely that. >> i think a huge amount. you just hit the nail on the head. countries are saying your own guy is doing the same thing.
9:05 am
it's interesting that china let him go. they don't want him on their territory. they don't want to create a bigger diplomatic incident. according to news reports snowden appears to be in the transit area of the airport there. according to news reports he was denied a russian visa. snowden has chosen three ecuador, venezuela and cuba that are the most hostile to the united states. >> yeah, indeed. i want to point out, iceland has not received an official application but law says you can't make an application for asylum unless you're in the country. iceland has not received an application. >> gloria you're covering the
9:06 am
white house briefing momentums aw moments away. what kind of pressure do can you think the president is under by bringing him home and trying to prevent any potential secrets from coming out? >> i just got off the phone with the senior administration official. more than anything there's a sense of frustration. they know the world is kind of watching this where's waldo story. it's not good for them. they'd like to get him extradited and back to this country. it's clear from their statements in particular we were just talking about russia and what russia is going to do. there's statement from the national security counsel which essential says that given our intensified cooperation with russia after the boston marathon bombings that we really expect them to extradite snowden to the united states and let him face justice for the crimes for which
9:07 am
he is charged. it's very clear that the u.s. is saying, look, there's going to be problems in a bilateral way with hong kong and china because of this and they're putting russia on notice here. they're dealing with this realtime. it's tough to talk to people in the administration when they are in the middle of this. it's clear they want to get out of it as quickly as they can and get this person and the american public is ambivalent about it. my question is when do we hear from the president? >> i suppose there's a danger that the hunt for the leaker could do more damage in terms of u.s. reputation than the leaks themselves given that everybody spies on everyone. for those countries that are apparent players, what's it if for them to take him or help him? >> the danger that this thing is getting out of control.
9:08 am
it's ironic that the leaks are supposed to show you an all powerful u.s. government that knows all and can manipulate things in the four corners of the world and here the u.s. government doesn't know if he's the transit lounge in the russian airport. i think these governments like ecuador and cuba and venezuela, this is part of a game. they can't exploit the data or information they get. it allows them to gain a certain kind of international acclaim for standing up to the united states. one of the other ironies here is that all the countries that snowden is dealing with china, russia, cuba, ecuador, venezuela
9:09 am
are countries that have harsh restrictions on freedom of the press. for an advocate of open information to be consorting with perhaps the worst of the offenders with regard to crackdowns on press freedom and open information is a huge irony. >> you have all these countries who are involved in really providing the safe passage here. there's a petition that went before the white house saying you should look the other way and not prosecute this guy. there are some lawmakers, peter king who is calling this guy a traitor. what kind of argument does the obama administration have. what kind of bar do they need to reach in terms of convincing people this guy is danger. he's a threat to national security. >> i think this is all a political situation. it's not legal in terms of how it's being dealt with by these other countries.
9:10 am
it's purely political. they've got to come to some political agreement to get him back if indeed they want him back. they'll have to come up with some political agreement. the problem is as we've been saying is china has let him go. russia seems to have him but not quote/unquote on russian territory because he's in the transit lounge. they boat met at the g-8 summit last week and the pictures told the story and the fact they couldn't come to any agreement on syria spoke loudly. it's very bad relations there. there's no relations in the latin american countries which form part of a group that's sort of anti-imperil ianti-imperiali.
9:11 am
>> really good stuff to read. >> we got a two minute warning from the white house. the briefing will start in a couple of minutes. what do we expect to get? >> he's probably going to get a lot of questions about when mr. snowden's passport was revoked and the tick tock of how this is going down. to answer your earlier question about what the president can do. he's got an american public that right now is pretty ambivalent on this. what he can do and what he's trying to do is meet with his privacy board is declassify some more information that lets you know about how this meta data can help thwart terror attacks and convince the american public that this is something that
9:12 am
needs to be done for their own safety and they haven't overstepped the bounds of privacy as we define it in this country. i think that's what you're going to see him do on the public relations front, domestically. what he's going to do internationally is another story. >> to the point of the hunt for the leaker doing more damage than the leaks themselves, politically. >> it makes us look like we've been played. it makes us look as frustrated as we are. this may play better in china than it does here. the chinese can say americans are hypocrites, they were spying on us. we've been accused of cyber attacking them. i think domestically it's a issue because don't forget the context in which this occurs. he's had problems not only on
9:13 am
the nsa surveillance but on the irs targeting, on drone strikes, on leak investigations. this comes within larger context for them. all of these being issues that they did not want to deal with right now where they're trying to focus on getting immigration reform passed through the senate. >> we'll keep you there. great analysis. thanks so much. we're following other news today. the supreme court has sidestepped major decision on whether or not race can be used as a factor in college admissions. we know such programs ensure diversity. abgal fisher sued the university of texas in austin back in 2008. she argued it was because she was white and she was being treated differently than someless qualified minority students. >> the supreme court ruled today
9:14 am
that college's affirmative action plan are constitutional only if racial preferences are the only way to achieve diversity. they say they failed to ask that question in fisher's case. now we are waiting for the supreme court to rule on some other major issues. >> including whether or not gay and lesbian couples have a fundamental constitutional right to marry and whether certain states will still need approval from the justice department before changing voting rules and polling locations. let's jump into a quick check of the markets. ever since the bell rang there's been a red arrow and the down now down over 200 points. it's been like that for the last two, three hours. this follows the drop of more than 5% on china's main stock market earlier today. >> the dow wasshaken last week. this was over concerns that the federal reserve will ease up on
9:15 am
its help for the economy. nelson mandela remains in critical condition. his condition was downgraded from stable yesterday. the former south african leader has been hospitalized since june 8. doctors are doing everything possible for him. >> this has been recuring for some time now. he hasn't made a public appearance since 2010. that was during the rugby world cub. we'll hear on what nelson mandela's daughter has to say about his health situation and the issue of family privacy. something hard for them to get. we're waiting as well for the white house brief iing that will occur. we're moments away. we'll bring in jessica yellen to
9:16 am
tell us what to expect. no one knows where edward snowden is, do the white house know? >> i suspect they do. the position of the administration is they had a valid warrant and valid arrest request from hong kong and he fled despite that request. they think that he is in russia and that they are asking all countries to expel him back to the u.s. and face justice. we'll see if jay carney will say all that. >> is this televised? nobody ever told me. good monday. thank you for being here. always good to have you on a slow news day. i wanted to note this week represents an important step in our efforts to start delivering
9:17 am
on the promise of expanding access to health coverage. we're expanding health the screen behind me gives you a sense of the new website. we're also opening a consumer call center that will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. this toll free service will help answer questions. starting in october it will provide personalized assistance for callers who are filling out their application or selecting a plan. beginning october 1st a new health insurance marketplace will open in every state giving americans a whole new way to shop for health insurance. for the next 100 days the team at hss will be working to educate the public about enrollment. consumers will be able to go to one place to check out their
9:18 am
coverage options, get accurate information in easy to understand language and make apples to apples comparison of plans before they make their decision. i do recommend that you visit the site. it's very well designed, very user friendly and represents the efforts under way to help inform the american people about the options available to them. julie. >> thank you. what can you tell us about edward snowden's whereabouts and is the white house working under the assumption he's still in russia? >> we understand he departed hong kong yesterday and arrived in russia. beyond that i would refer you to russian authorities. it's our assumption he's in the
9:19 am
u.s. >> i know you asked the russians to look at all options to expel him. are they receptive? are they working toward that goal? >> i would say we are in conversations and working with them or discussing with them or rather expecting them to look at the options available to expel mr. snowden back to the united states to face justice for the crimes with which he is charged. i would note that given our intensified cooperation with russia after the boston marathon bombings and our history of working with russia on law enforcement matters including returning numerous high level criminals back to russia after the request that we expect them to look at the options available to them to excel mr. snowden back to the united states. >> have they responded by saying
9:20 am
yes? >> i don't have details of conversations to read out to you. we're monitoring the situation very closely and are in contact with russia and other governments as appropriate. >> snowden left hong kong. what type of influence do you think beijing had in that decision? >> first of all, let me say that the request that was made complied with all the requirements of the u.s.-hong kong surrender agreement. at no point in our discussions did the authorities in hong kong raise any issue regarding the proficiency issue. we find their decision troubling. since june 10, u.s. authorities have been in contact with the hong kong counter parts at the
9:21 am
working and senior level. stressing the importance of the matter and urging hong kong to honor our request for snowden's request. there's been repeated engagem t engagements by the u.s. department of state and there's been repeated engagements by the fbi and finally there have been communications by the doj criminal division office of international affairs with counter parts at hong kong's department of justice. on june 17th, hong kong authorities acknowledged receipt of our request. they did not respond with any additional documents stating the matter was under review. on june 21 hong kong authorities requested additional information. the u.s. had been in communication with hong kong about these inquiries and we were in the process of responding to the request when we learned they had allowed a
9:22 am
fugitive to leave hong kong. with regards to the chinese government. we're not buying this was a technical decision. this was a deliberate choice by the government to release a fugitive despite a valid arrest warrant and that decision has a neg tiative imact on the relationship. >> we think they have dealt that effort a serious set back. if we cannot count on them to honor their legal extradition obligations then there's a problem. that's a point we're making to them directly. >> have you spoken to their president about this? >> we are communicating with the counter parts. >> are there repercussions for russia? >> i wouldn't want to speculate
9:23 am
on outcomes. we understand there snowden to be in russia and we are in discussions with russian authorities about that. as i just noted we have a strong law enforcement relationship with the russians and it's resulted in the past. us returning criminals to russia and we are expecting the russians to examine the options available to them. >> how frustrating is it to the president at first china let's him go and now russia seems to be on the verge of letting him go? >> i would not want to speculate about anything that's not happened. our frustration is reflected in the statement i just made. >> yes. >> how did the president react when he learned snowden left hong kong? >> i would say the president has
9:24 am
been up dadated by his national security staff. i don't have a characterization of his reaction to development except to say he's monitoring it closely. the disappoint we feel is every dent by what i just said. >> you want answers on why snowden's passport wasn't pulled sooner in. >> i think there's been -- let me say a couple of things about that because the statement department explained this yesterday. as a routine matter persons with felony arrest washtss are subject to having their passports revoked. such a revocation does not affect citizenship status. persons wanted on felonycharges should not be allowed to proceed in any international travel other than necessary to return them to the united states. because of the privacy act and
9:25 am
anyone can note the irony there, we cannot comment on his passport specifically. i can say the hong kong authorities were advised of the status of his travel documents. let me repeat. i can say that the hong kong authorities were advised of the status of his travel documents in plenty of time to have prohibited his travel as appropriate. i think i did reflect our concern and disappointment in the actions or failure to act by the hong kong authorities as well as the fact we do not buy the suggestion that china could not have taken action. >> you said attorney general reached out and fbi. the president made the call to president putin and if he has not, why not? >> i don't have presidential communication to read out to you
9:26 am
except to say there's no reason given international law and the relationship with countries in question this will require a communication from the president. there are kplun indications at the appropriate levels. we note that we have a strong cooperative relation with the russians and we expect them to expel him for his return to the united states. >> he isn't returned. >> when it comes to our relations with hong kong and china that we see this as a setback in terms of their efforts to build mutual trust and our concerns are pretty clearly stated. >> does the administration reveal mr. snowden has revealed everything he needs to reveal?
9:27 am
do you believe he has access to that information? >> there's a damage assessment being undertaken. i don't have specifics on the progress of that for you. i is say we are concerned about the leak of unauthorized leaks of classified information. we're concerned about the kinds of information that's been leaked. . we've said disclosure of this kind is extremely damaging to our national security and gives our terrorist enemies a play book of things to thwart them. >> a russian news agency has
9:28 am
speculated one reason for the delay in his departure may be there's concern that the u.s. might try to force down a russian airliner carrying him to land on u.s. territory. would we go after him with force like that? >> we're communicating with the appropriate authorities in russia and elsewhere. i'm not going to respond to speculation in a a russian newspaper. >> how far would we go to get him? would we take down an airliner? >> i think we expect the russian authorities to examine the options available to them and i think i can leave it at that. >> you rule out any use of force? >> i'm not going to engage in speculation about various
9:29 am
options. i would say we're working with authorities in variety of countries on this matter. >> is there any information on what's happened to the four computers he's supposed to have been carrying? >> i don't have any information. as i said, we remain concerned about the unauthorized leaks of classified information and the potential for leaks of more classified information. there's a damage assessment ongoing. i think it's safe to assume that information that he has both provided and may still have is already compromised. the damage assessments would have to take that into account. >> there's stories out there that one story has the computers having been left behind at some point. another story has the chinese having had chance to copy the information. what do we know? >> i don't have been specifics
9:30 am
about that. it's safe to assume in the damage assessment that's ongoing that any information that he might have that's unauthorized that he has not already provided publicly we would expect it to be compromised. >> what about the u.s. handling of it. who is leading efforts? is it the white house, justice department? who is sort of quarterbacking the u.s. response? >> there's a variety of people involve second-degree here. >> to track him down. >> the department of justice has issued an indictment and has a lead in that matter. there are other agencies involved in the effort to deal
9:31 am
with the situation and that involves diplomacy as well as law enforcement. to your question about the u.s. handling of it, i think i addressed the issue of the passport. i was able to say what i said about the fact that hong kong authorities were advised of the status of mr. snowden's travel documents in plenty of time to prohibited his travel as appropriate. there was no indication in any of the conversations between u.s. officials and hong kong officials prior to their request for information that proceeded the departure of mr. snowden that there were any problems. >> there's been so suggestions that interpol was not contacted early enough to alert them to the fact the u.s. wanted their help.
9:32 am
>> i think you need to understand as i believe is the case that on matters of interpol red notices, red notice is most valuable when the whereabouts are unknown. here we knew the fugitive was in hong kong and directly sought his pending arrest while the charges were under seal. it's unfortunate that hong kong failed to take action on our request and permitted a fugitive to leave their country in an obvious attempt to escape justice. >> the administration was embarrassed when you had a 29-year-old person as contractor just leak all these documents in the first place. is the administration embarrassed that you can't track him down in this cat and mouse game for all the world to see. >> i think i've been clear about the actions we've taken and our assessment of failure of authorities in hong kong to act appropriately on a provisional arrest. we have known where he is and
9:33 am
believe we know where he is now. there's ongoing conversations about that. beyond that we'll have to assess as time passes. >> more than six hours removed from the supposed airplane he was going to be on. is him not on an airplane yet should that be taken as a science that negotiations between the u.s. government and russian government are making progress, ongoing, is that a positive sign as far as the u.s. government is concerned that mr. snowden has not gotten on any airplane? >> all i can say, because this is an ongoing situation is we have asked the russians to look at the options available to them to expel mr. snowden back to the united states. i can note as i have that we have worked with the russians in the wake of the the boston marathon bombings and have fairly substantial history of
9:34 am
law enforcement cooperation with russia as a backdrop to this discussion. i wouldn't want to characteri i communications at this point or speculate about outcomes. this is clearly fluid and we're monitoring. sg so far they're cooperating? >> it's our understanding that mr. snowden is in russia. we have communicated to the russians our hope that they will look at all options available to them to expel mr. snowden back to the united states. >> does the u.s. government believe if he's allowed to leave russia then you probably is going to give up on getting him back? >> i wouldn't want to speculate about that. i don't think give up is way to characterize the situation.
9:35 am
we believe we is know where he is we're having appropriate conversations about that. >> quickly on immigration. one of the house democrats who try to be involved in the talks is said that it's not, doesn't believe it's a blow to immigration reform if a version of the house does not pass the house before the august recess. seems to be where the white house wants it before the august recess. are you guys comfortable with -- >> things we have learned from the white house briefing. edward snowden departed hong kong yesterday. the white house confirmed he traveled to russia, arrived in russia. he's still there. officials are engaged in talks with russian officials to make sure he's brought from russia back to the united states. he wouldn't give anymore about that. you and i talking about this, the more time that goes by very
9:36 am
likely in a good point. >> if he didn't get on that plane to havana then one imagines they are having a good conversation. what was interesting is he really did rip into china. he said they could be repercussions in the relationship with china. that was a very pointed comment. >> let's bring in gloria to talk about that. they're not buying it. what do they do? what are the options now? >> reporter: as you point out hopefully they are in discussions in some way with russia but if frustration was clear to me from jay carney. he came out and said our frustration and disappointment with hong kong and china is evident. he kept calling it a setback in the relationship. he made it very clear that authorities had been advised in
9:37 am
what he said plenty of time to have prohibited his travel. i mean, it's very clear, you don't have to read between the lines here. this is not diplo speak. this was english. he said this is real problem for us going forward and i think in saying that with hong kong and china, one can infer it would be the same with russia. >> he's also saying the u.s. made it clear that this guy's passport was with drawn. he was without valid documents and he was allowed to go. hong kong officials saying they had no reason to hold him and there was a problem with what the u.s. was giving them. jay carney saying that's not the case. >> reporter: not the case. in fact, the justice department has put out this very long and involved timeline which jay carney was reading from in part talking about the exact steps
9:38 am
and the conversations that the attorney general had and that others had and exactly everything, every discussion that was had and there were no red flags put up at any point as jay carney said today and nobody had been given any indication that this extradition would not go forward as they believe was required under the law. that's why he said we're not buying that this was a technical decision by a hong kong immigration official. >> let's bring in jeffrey here. we're talking about the dip lo diplomatic side. there's a legal side. what can the united states do on the legal front to get this guy back to the united states? >> reporter: i don't really think there's a legal front. this is a political and diplomatic contest. if china wanted to turn him
9:39 am
over, they would turn him over. if russia wants to turn them over, they'll turn him over. this is not a matter of the justice department writing a really persuasive brief or invoking precisely the right part of the treaty. this is a diplomatic issue between the united states and these countries and it's really all about our relationship. i don't think that the legal side of it matters much at all. >> jeff, there are agreements in place. international rules are you don't have a valid passport, you don't travel. if you let somebody travel on passport that's been pulled, that sets a pretty nasty precedent. >> reporter: it does. as far as i could tell the united states and hong kong has a long history of cooperation in law enforcement matters. it's worked very well over many years. this was an exception because it
9:40 am
is so fraught with political complications and china, it seems to me, decided we don't want to turn this guy over. we want to send him to russia or out of here somewhere and they decided not to follow rules that have been followed for a great many years but there's no remedy for that. you can't go to some supreme court. you can't go to the united natio nations. this is a issue of reciprocity. it could damage relations and that's the only thing it can do. china cannot be called to account. >> reporter: it's also like passes around a hot potato. china may have decided we don't want to keep him in hong kong but we're not sending him back. we'll let him go to russia, get him off our plate and now it's putin's problem, which is it. >> and a lot of eye poking. >> it's only going to get more
9:41 am
