tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  September 18, 2014 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT

5:00 pm
polls in scotland, such a crucial story for the world. two weeks ago nobody thought it would be. anderson "ac360" will continue to cover thetbb story right no >> good evening, thank you for joining us, there is a lot happening okahead,i] more nfl domestic violence headlines. a mass shooting in florida,t( a scotland determining if they want toi] break away from the united kingdom. but we begin with this man, eric frein, who is wanted for the killing of one police officer and the wounding of another. today, the fbi put frein on its ten most wanted list. right now they are searching significantlyñi in the area. jason carroll has more. >> reporter: just aok great dea of police activity. let me set the scene here, the town where eric frein lived, up the road there, just about a mile or so up that road.
5:01 pm
and what we have been seeing and hearing 5aabout, armored cars all of a sudden showing up in the area. a very heavye1 police presence, door, ase1 well.king door oh 0l helicopters overhead, the area has been blocked off. the residentsx::jz live in the area being told they're not allowed to go home at this time. kejt told they have to stay away. there were thoughts,e1 anderson that authorities actually had frein perhaps even cornered or captured a little earliere1 but that is not the case. becausee"9 we were out here we actually made our way up the road just a little bit up in this area. and we saw the statek1jtt actively still searching for this man. they have the searchñr lights o, we had gotten to one point ande then an officer told us, itok i justxd notfáq sa>ebok for us to right now, you need to turn back andu3, head in the other ection. s'1 clearly a lot of developmens happening outq here in the searh for eric frein. >> and jason, explain for those
5:02 pm
who have not been followi it. this all started last friday really with the shooting of the two police okofficers. the killing of one of the troopers. what do we know aboutw3 this gu and what do we know about his skills as a marksman and what does he have? >> reporter: well, anderson, we have been doing a lot of reports about this person. he is highly skilled using weapons and in fact has been training since he was a young boy. he was a member of thexd rifle club. his father, an army vet, basically telling authorities who camexd to investigate about his son basically telling him that when his son shoots he never misses. so this is a man who is also being descrg" asá survivalist. this is a very heavily wooded area. and frein knows these woods and knows this area. he knows how to survive in this area. and so this is someone that state police know that he is competent with a rifle. and in fact missing from the
5:03 pm
house. an ak-47 and a rifle. so they know that he is heavily ñd8they. they know that he is familiar with this wooded area. so that is why you can see now this m)&/r+e manhunt that is under way. =iñ there have been false reports out there. and"nson, but we've not seen anything like we've seen out here so far. >> and jason in terms of thexde incidents onlp friday you justt described a little bit what happened. did he kill the officer up close, with th"wrifle thate1 ha the capability of killing from a far distance? >> reporter: absolutely, state police call it ae1 cowardly act the policemen were basically working their shift. and the way police describe it, allegedly frein was hiding inj&c the woods. used his çórifle, shot one and
5:04 pm
then shotnú another. receptiont came out to try took help one o theq officers took a shot at xd, as well. and in fact, the funeral for as you can imagine for this family. this was a father of two, a veteran. somebody -- you know, when you lose an officer in aw3 very sma community like this one everyone feels it, anderson. and so during the funeral today zme out with cards andok balloons to show their respect for this officer. and as you can imagine there is a great deal of hope in thise1 community, in this town that j" frein will be caught and caught soon. éz/pwant to bring in former fbi ñ they saidi] they put5a this gu their5au ten most wanted list the fbi.
5:05 pm
tom, you talked about the wmjju he çóhad. in particular this rifle. really, it was pretty chilling stuff. i mean, you!u talked about it t night somebody who was shot by the rifle.  would have been hit before they even heard the rifle go off? >> that is right, anderson. the ñrñr.308-caliber rifle is t sniper rifle 1l÷ choice by the military and by law enforcement and by s.w.a.t. team snipers. the bullet is supersonic and travels faster than the speed of sound, before it reaches the target. and as father said, the fact he already killed an officerfá heen shoot people frome1 a couple hundred yards away, where with a little bit of camouflage they would never be able to see him and have no idea. sox$$u$e police officers searchg danger and have been, of beingf ambushed without even having a
5:06 pm
clue ofçó where he is at. >> and that is the thing, tom, for days they had no idea where he is. and you often think well, maybe they're hundreds of miles away. and i suppose that is a possibility. but his car was foundçó ditchedn a pond nearby not far from the shooting incident.w3 and justxd like with dorner bac in california who shot the police officers and had that grudge against the lapd, it is very possible this guy has done a home invasion or ise1e1 stayin some house that was empty. >> that isçó right. that is exactly what dorner did. and after being loose for a week it ended up he wase1 never more than axd few 100 yards away fr[ the place where heq abandoned hó vehicle. just like in that case, we don't know whether or not he planned this to the endth degree,e1 dide planz nobody would really be able to
5:07 pm
track him down right away. i doubt that xdscenario, it is clear he ambushed the officer, it was not a spontaneous act to kill him. but ilp thinke1 that probably h very close at hand somewhere in thatxd wooded area or as you ha said he may have invaded a home and could be holding a family hostage. could have killed a family and just stayed in the house for food and shelter. we don't know. we should point out neighbors say he was in military gear. with thee1 photographs we had, was actually a cold war reenactor. i think he used to dress up at polish forces, or resistance forces, that is him there doing that. clearly somebody who spent a lot of time in the woods. if there are akv newñi developmentsi]e1 in the stoppin this l?wy. and also in florida, we have
5:08 pm
more newse1 ande1 are expectingy stephanie, explain what happened here. what do you know about what went on? >> reporter: yeah, i think now we're allw3 waiting for the pre conference. what we doñi know nowi]i] -- a what hcm to be the father,w3 shot at hise1 own daughter and x children, which are his grandkids. now, you know, a lot of different sources have been aiting to confirm that information tonight. i spoke to a lot ofe1 neighbors who were alarmednb about the situation and very shocked and surprised about how this tragedy came about. >> stephanie, is it your understanding that this occurred inside ai] home? >> reporter: that is right. i just got out of the scene, you
5:09 pm
know, it was closed off. it all happened in a trailer home. and we don't know thefázg7 detas to howe1 the actual shooting we about.[dty but we're hoping to get that information during that press conference. >> okay,çó and do you know and do you know -- are the peopt okay who was shot? loss of life? >> we don't know that for sure. but --u a lotqe1 of different sources and neighbors=. tell use have had some deaths. but i don't feel comfortable discussing that now sincet( we don't have it completely confirmed. >> absolutely, stephanie, we'll check back with yoz1 once this press conference has taken place. quick reminder, set your dvrs. and more breaking news, president obama weighing in on isis tonight. military planners with a target move. and president obama weighs .ñ n
5:10 pm
that, all that and more ahead.
5:11 pm
i hait's tough, but severi've managed.ease. but managing my symptoms was all i was doing. so when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas
5:12 pm
where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. create things that help people. design safer cars. faster computers. smarter grids and smarter phones. think up new ways to produce energy. be an engineer. solve problems the world needs solved. what are you waiting for? changing the world is part of the job description. join the scientists and engineers of exxonmobil in inspiring america's future engineers.
5:13 pm
energy lives here. well, there is breaking news in the fight against isis, the senate giving final approval for traininge1e1 andlp equipping sy1 rebels, president obama thanking them fore1 thefá support.
5:14 pm
>> thisfá strong support shows americans who are united in the &>=9q against isis who has slaughtered so many innocent qnu)sians. americans they thought they could cause us fear, today they learned the lesson of petty terrorists. ase1 americanse1 we do not giveo fear. when you harm our citizens and threaten the united states and ourñr allies it doesn't divide , itt( unites us. >> mr.xd obama reiterated that e fight doesn't include the combat forces on the ground. earlier today, the defense secretary chuck hagel saidñr th top commanders developed afá targeting plan. meanwhile, it appears that isis correspondent jim sciutto. >> i'm told by senior mili')qy officials that has the air campaign, particularly in syria has ramped up, changing its communication and concealment in response moving around in xd
5:15 pm
effect. and there was concern they would move around particularly in the cities where thereq are more difficult targets. yp.ut military officials say th are cofadent they have the targets to make  air campaign a success. >> soe1 they have the target li. what is the next step for them? >> well, the next step is to show it to the president one more time. the president believes itq has the target list prepared. the president now has to approve it az÷ then move forward. this is something, anderson, the pentagon has been working around the clock on. they feel confident in that list. they just need the presidential ow. >> you know, this is such a world away from what the white house was pushing for with syria just a year ago. >> and a world awaye1 from the president felt in regard to striking bashar assad, he felt he needede1 congressional approval.i] and when he went he realized he didn't have congressional t(
5:16 pm
support. now when he goes today he gets overwhelming support, on either side, arming the syrian rebels. a remarkable turn of events. i think it shows you how it has turned, where the public clearly had no appetitee1 for the struge in syria, now in the wake of the isis it does. >> let's go to danaxd bash on capitol hill for more on the senate vote tonight. how did the vote break down? >> reporter: it was overwhelming. there was bipartisanok support senators voted for it. only 22 against it. and the no votes were pretty split. there were democrats who did not like this idea and were very vocal about it. and same goes for republicans. so it was not that different from what we saw in the house with regard to parties crossing for and against. rebels in syria. is there absolutely nolpu appe on capitol hill for a vote on
5:17 pm
the larger military action?e1 >> reporter: there is an appetite for it. that is what is so ironic. there seems to be more appetite, as congress just udid, to go he now through the elections to campaign tog mean, that is just the bottom line. a lot of members of congress as i talked toçó as they wereb. lg saidt(e1 they wished theysá coue and stay and have a debate on this. but that was not an option for them. which is why?; you did see thi vote tonight as jim was saying, a much, muchp, more limited ve narrow authority for the president to(!÷] train and arm syrian rebels. but even that, they had to go through some legislative kabuki theater to get that done. you and i talked last night aboutxd the fact the house had 18tu(ápáe vote but tucked it ino a must-pass spending bill to keep the governmentt( running. that is what the senate voted on tonight. thati] was a carefully put together strategy by the
5:18 pm
de leader harry reid. both felt they needede1 to get done because thefá rank and fil they were not sure how it would go. as i said, legislative kabuki theater. i juste1 wanted to go to wh you just said. some are shaking their head. lawmakers just came back from recess two weeks ago and now are leaving town for another recess until the election in november? >> that is right, when it comes to the house they are actually leaving a week earlier than they scheduled to be here in town until about the end of september to have about a month back home to campaign. but they skipped town today. so a week earlier, you're right, they were all back home with their constituents for about five weeks in the month of august and then september. came back only for two weeks to go right back and campaign. td8surprising.ybe not that it is tradition. but when things are as they are in the world, there weree1 a lo
5:19 pm
of lawmakers whoq don't make th decisions about what to do e1he, they're note1 very happy -- >> what about the european work schedule? >> except in europe, they don't campaign, they actually vacation. >> all right, well, thank you, dana, as always you can find more on the story on cnn.com. and the e1e1out-of-control a situation. and we'll talk to the ambassador to the u.n., samantha powers. and more on the reaction against yiefrz. isis.

e1today, the6m united nati something pretty extraordinary happened fore1 the first time.e1 to call the
5:24 pm
ebolaxd virusxd that is ragingq africa,ñhw3 threat to worldok security. more than 2600 people have died from uebola, more than 5,000 he been infected witho7o the virus. even secretary general ban ki-moon has looked into the articles to tryok to combat tx4 earlier i spoke to ambassador power. you had strategies to deal with the ebola crisis, obviously that is a hugelp deployment for the crisis. what happens in new guinea, is focusing on liberia enough? will they be dealing with people from new guinea and training people in liberia? >> well, first let me say it is a regional join task force so it é@ u.n. and efforts across theñi ñr pi have also just come frome1 a security council session5a whe we had a doctor from liberia
5:25 pm
begging the rest of the international community to step up, whether with troops or with beds or witht( doctors or even soap and buckets, as he put itx at one point to help people.hji action today of a kind we've never seen before in the history of the united nations and we hope it won'tñi juste1 be these 3,000 u.s. troops but then one1 the civilian sidelp and even th logistic military side we'll see contributions from others. >> it is incredibly frustrating for people in these countries and anybody concerned about this that the doctors at the u.n.lp begging for soap and buckets from these countries. i know you have said that these resources previously at thefá beginning of thelp epidemic are very inadequate. when you talked to thet( ambassadors with thee1 u.n. why aren't the countries with the u.n. doing ñrmore? >> well, i don't think the penny drops for quite a while. and that is true really of all i think traditionally, the ebola
5:26 pm
outbreaks have been dealt with in the countries in question with a little bit of international support. and this epidemic, this virus has spread and become ane1 epidemic@qgrtly because of where it landed, weste1 africa had ner seen ebola before and didn't have the capabilities. and it hit in the firstxd instae right at that border between guinea, sierra leone and liberi so it spread quickly into the areas,e1 particularlye1 monrovi. so w3today's session, i want to stress, anderson, this is very significant. this is the first emergency meeting of the u.n.e1 security council int( the history and th history of theñr united nations. we had 134 co-sponsors calling on countries to do more and lift the travelxd restrictionse1 and other forms ofe1 isolation that they have imposed on these
5:27 pm
 by this epidemic. and we saw something we never saw in the history ofe1 the unid nations. words are meaningless unless the words today translate into concrete commitments that fill the gap between again, kind of moral support which these countries have intangible >> i alsoñi want to ds@> we arexd concerned with the threat grave to the region to any american citizen that crosses its path. and of course to the homeland over time, given their stated
5:28 pm
intentions toward us. a vast coalition of countries have come together. secretary kerry willçó chair a meeting here at the security council tomorrow where iok thin as many as 50 countries will speak, halfok of them in a administration manner. it is no secret that the iraqi government in recent years took on a more sectarian tone and that is one of the reasonsxd th sunni didn'tok really see the central government as representing its interests. and they found sympathy with them, more thanu they should have. we've heard from the sunni tribes, many of them, a great eagerness to break away but lacking the means to do so. the government in iraq has c) á theye1 are active in fighting isol, as well. but we are notq in any way coordinating viewinge1 shiite militia as any active way to deal with isol.
5:29 pm
>> and i've gotten tweetsfá whe some say why does the u.s. have to be the one stepping in andxd once again le%)[ejt the way in iraq? you said what if the u.s. didn't do that. there are plenty of other countries who have perhaps even greater security concerns that face isis. ( turkey,t( saudi arabia, plenty other countries in the region, even western europe who prokly have greater security concerns and face a greater threat from isis right now in the short-term isis right now in the short-term tx@ why does the u.s. have to lead the way? >>w3 well, we certainly agree wh the overwhelming opinion of the american people, which is that this burden has to be shared and that isol is a threat not only to the united states but to the region. and the countries in the region that want to see isol destroyed over time need to be part of this coalition and need to put skin in the game. =amz%ñ military support to the iraqis or the kurds or the airstrikes. so i agree with the general
5:30 pm
i would ask again who would you expect in the 193 countries of the united nations to lead, if not the united states? and i woulde1 alsoñie1 again,e1 what isol has done to two americans who did nothing more than travel to syria jusl( to tell the story ofe1 what wase1 happening to people t(there,my monst monstosity that the group inflicts, this is a terror group where we've assessed axdlpe1e1xn that we'll look to in fádepth. we now know the details of the runningback, jonathan dwyer, they are in a word, sickening. that is not 4rhjf only nfl development tonight.
