tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN March 24, 2015 2:00am-3:01am PDT
sent that information to and whether this will effect the negotiations. we will cover the angles of the story right now. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. john berman is in d.c. all week. breaking overnight. accusations emerging that israel has been spying on iran with the nuclear deal. "the wall street journal" reporting that israel eavesdropped to get information from informants and diplomatic contacts. israel denied spying on u.s. negotiations. lawmakers and officials. let's bring in cnn's oren liebermann in jerusalem. oren what were the spies allegedly doing with the stolen information? >> reporter: christine, that is the second part of the allegations.
the first allegation from the journal that israel was spying. second, the allegation that israel was using that information and feeding it to congress and use the information to effect congress to stand up to a deal and try to block a deal with iran. trying to use that influence on the iran deal. >> what is israel's response to the report? they say they are not directly spying on the negotiations. >> reporter: very strong denial here from the israeli government from prime minister benjamin netanyahu's office. saying the first part of the spying is wrong. here is a statement they gave us. these allegations are utterly false. the false allegations are clearly intended to undermine the strong tie was the united states and israel and security relationship we share. we have seen from the israeli government and prime minister's office a very strong denial of
the basis of the wall street journal article. >> how does this effect the relationship with the white house and israel? this is already a strained relationship. >> reporter: that could be the long term effect. a relationship that is already strained and we heard a few times over the last few weeks it has hit an all-time low. it could find itself at a new all-time low between the world leaders. it keeps getting worse. thank you for that report. oren liebermann in jerusalem. the report of spying comes with one week left before the deadline to reach a framework for a deal. secretary kerry returns to switzerland on thursday where the negotiations are on an break. what will he face when he gets there? joining us now is nic robertson. here we have been watching this
spying. a new very serious wrinkle. >> reporter: indeed. one of the points of the wall street journal makes is israel sent a delegation to paris to influence the french position. the implication it is not just sway pillolitics in the united states. they will use this information to gain a voice and stronger voice inside those talks. p-5 plus 1, united states france britain, germany, russia china. the state of the talks, secretary kerry said progress has been made but more needs to be done. the iranian position is entrenched. the president there is talking about progress but the supreme leader ayatollah khomeini in iran is saying at the moment the united states is in effect bullying iran and iran will not
cower and give in to bullying. his position has been look you can choose the united states and allies. stop pressuring iran and the team at the negotiations. take the pressure off and you will get an agreement. the talks are still in a very rocky situation. a lot of important ground and agreement have yet to be made. clearly the implication of the article is that israel will be using information to leverage more of what it wants inside the talks. >> complicated chess report. thank you, nic robertson. a u.n. official declaring yemen on the brink of civil war. yemen, the elected government is
calling on other states to intervene to help stop houthis rebels advancing and bring its president back to power. this as britain has pulled the last of its forces out of yemen. the u.s. special forces were evacuated over the weekend. this is crippling the counterterrorism efforts by the united states in yemen. we are learning details this morning about the 11 medical students we told you about suspected of traveling to syria to work in isis-controlled hospitals. seven britains and american and canadian. a turkish lawmaker believes quote they were brainwashed. the families are saying the students went to the border to offer voluntary medical help and have since disappeared. halted by the hundreds of ied booby traps that isis planted
all over the tikrit center. for the latest let's bring in jomana karadsheh in baghdad. let's start with the medical students. what do we know about them and motives and where they are? >> reporter: christine, a lot of mystery surrounding this case. as you mentioned, a turkish lawmaker is convinced they arrived in turkey and went to syria and isis-controlled territory. he is convinced they have gone to work for the terror group there working at hospitals. family members are already in turkey on the border trying to track down their children and they said in a joint statement that their children went to turkey to the border area where we know there are a lot of refugees there. they went to help refugees. they are there as medical
workers. they disappeared after arriving in turkey. from the lawmaker he said they arrived on march 12 in turkey. they came in on two flights. ten arrived on the flight from sudan. that is where they were studying medicine. eight graduated fresh and three others in the final year as medical students. then on that same day, another one arrived from toronto. we do not know their whereabouts right now. their motivations for traveling to syria. their families are very concerned. they are there and trying hard to get answers for this because it is really concerning phenomenon with westerners traveling into isis-controlled terrorist territory. it is unclear where the 11 are and motivations to travel.
>> let me ask you about tikrit and iraqi military slowing of advance because of all of the ied booby traps. will they be able to take this town once and for all? >> reporter: iraqis are very confident about this christine. as you recall this offensive started on march 1st. they did make advances and took over a lot of terroristitory with tikrit. it is a joint operation. what they say is that they now have isis militants surrounded inside tikrit. they are unable to continue the advance afternoon this point. something they will resume at any moment. what is stopping them is resistance in the form of ieds. a large amount of those and car bombs in the city and snipers positioned on the roads to stop this advance of the iraqi
forces. they are concerned about a mass casualty situation. worried about damaging infrastructure. at least that is what the iraqis are saying publicly. they are determined to take tikrit. that would be a major victory for them. this would be the largest city the main cities they retake from isis. >> thank you, jomana karadsheh. new evidence that isis is making steps to recruit into afghanistan. look at the video of the recruiting video in afghanistan. it appears to be a small early effort. a u.n. official says there is concern that isis could gain a foothold adding to the challenges. this morning, afghan president ghani meets with president obama. the mission is to slow the withdraw of troops. the afghan president warning pulling all of the troops out of the country in 2016 as planned
would have devastateing consequences. jim acosta has latest. >> reporter: president obama is expected to shed light on winding down the war in afghanistan. he will do that with the meeting with president ghani. president obama had said he would slash the current number of u.s. troops in afghanistanstanafghanistan by half. from 10,000 to 5,000 by the end of this year with a total withdraw by the end of 2016. ghani wants president obama to reconsider. while they are looking at the pace of the u.s. pullout, the plan is to have a small number of troops in afghanistan as president obama leaves office. here is what josh earnest had to say about that. >> we are talking in the neighborhood of 1,000 to 1,500 troops. at this point, the u.s. troop presence is around 10,000 in
afghanistan. the question is how much flexibility is there in the drawdown between where we stand today and that end point in 2017. >> reporter: the white house has high hopes for afghanistan's president. ghani is well known in washington. he once worked for the world bank and lived in the d.c. suburbs. christine. >> thanks jim. let's get an early start on your money. alison kosik joining me now. good morning, alison. we have several hours before the markets are open. >> quiet right now. stock futures are up slightly. stocks taking a breather after the run up last week. the dow and s&p pulled back a bit. nasdaq closed lower as well. although it is still above 5,000. near its march 2000 high. we will watch the nasdaq. get the new record high that we have not seen happen in 15 years. >> we have seen stocks with an incredible rally in the past six
years. where is the smart money value in the markets? >> let's go to analysts. according to the biggest private equity terms, there are big deals in oil. carlisle is more bullish on oil than any other sector in the world. oil prices tumbled from over $100 a barrel last summer to less than $50. oil companies have slashed spending and cut jobs. oil stocks tumbled 20% or more. it is unclear with oil prices and when they may bounce back. some of the analysts are saying this is where you want to be. this is where you want to put your money. you know no risk no reward. >> a lot of investors when they see a crash like that. they see an opportunity. thanks for that. 12 minutes past the hour. shocking story of a gang rape at a college fraternity published

breaking overnight, israel accused of spying on the nuclear talk was u.s. and iran. using that information to pit congress against the white house. with one week before the deadline of negotiations could this derail progress? we are live with the latest. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. let's start with the big story breaking. accusations emerges that israel has been spying on negotiations with iran over a nuclear deal. spying almost from the beginning. the report that israel eavesdropped on negotiations and in exchange for briefings and informants and european diplomatic contacts.
israeli officials denied spying. the journal says it spoke to more than a dozen diplomats and lawmakers and officials for its story. i want to bring in oren liebermann live for us in jerusalem for the latest. oren we have been hearing from benjamin netanyahu and the israeli government for weeks saying they had their understanding of the negotiations. they did not like what they were hearing. did they get that understanding from stolen information? >> reporter: they deny the allegations in the article. they deny they spied. that is the central allegation of the story. the story that "the wall street journal" alleges that israel spied on the negotiations and feeding that information to congress. here is the strongly worded denial from the prime minister's office. allegations are false. state of israel does not conduct
espionage. the security and intelligence relationship we share is not harmed. our understanding is they have inside information on the deals. they are being vague where they got the information. they have tried to use that information to influence congress or at least make their concerns known to congress. >> how could this all hurt what is already a strained relationship with the white house and israel oren? >> reporter: christine, it won't help. we heard a number of times over the last few weeks this relationship with netanyahu and obama is at an all-time low. yet, as we see this continued back and forth with the white house and prime minister's office it gets lower. the relationship is getting worse. we know house speaker john boehner is on his way next week. that will not help. >> no, it won't.
oren liebermann watching it for us, thank you, oren. that report of israeli spying comes with weeks left before the framework is necessary for the nuclear deal with iran. what does secretary kerry face when he gets to switzerland? joining us now is nic robertson. nic. >> reporter: christine, it is not the relationship between israel and the united states that is affected in this and how pressure is effectively brought on the decision making of secretary kerry's team made by the pressure. you have a component here of the talks outside of the united states. a p-5 plus 1 with iran. france, germany, britain, russia and china. we know that an israeli
delegation including the intelligence minister to the prime minister were meeting with french officials in paris yesterday. the french foreign ministry said this did not involve the french foreign minister. this wasn't the israelis trying to persuade their position but talk through the debate on iran. that same delegation is heading to britain for a similar series of talks to broaden the discussion on iran. when all parties get around the table there in switzerland, which they will israel which have been able to use the information it has that perhaps try to persuade others at the table of the ponsimportance of the position. we know the talks have made progress. secretary kerry and iranians have said that. the iranian position at the moment is the united states is putting too much pressure on
iran. bullying is how ayatollah khomeini the spiritual leader of iran, put it over weekend. there are still gaps to close. at this late hour, israel is still discussing a dialogue about iran in these talks. >> nic robertson, thank you for that. the negotiations resume on thursday. u.s. officials and u.n. officials declaring yemen on the brink of civil war. the elected government president is calling on houthis rebels to be stopped. this as we learn britain has now also pulled out the last of the forces out of yemen. the u.s. evacuated more than 100 special operations troops over the weekend. developments are crippling american counter terrorism efforts.
this could make yemen the staging ground for terror. a turkish lawmaker believes the medical students went to syria were brainwashed. the families said they went to offer medical help for rmgefugees and have since disappeared. we have atika shubert with more on the story. >> reporter: christine, we had a chance to speak with the families yesterday. they told cnn that yes, there has been some communication, but they did not say more than that. we know text messages have been exchanged with the children and parents, but they have not said where they are. only that they are fine and they are working and helping with refugees. presumably in a clinic or hospital. they won't say specifically
where. the big question is have they crossed over into syria. the parents are here on the turkish side on the border. they say they won't leave without their children. they don't know where their children might be. they could be across the border in syria. the big question is are they in isis-controlled area or in an area controlled by other groups. we heard from an mp helping them saying they are working with turkish and british and sudanese authorities to get them back. >> they don't know where they are or what their motives. that is frightening. thank you for that atika shubert. word that isis militants are skimming tens of millions of dollars in iraqi government funds. the money is payroll for government workers in mosul and other areas that are occupied by isis. this puts iraqi officials in a
position if they cut off the money depriving isis of cash they cut off employees potentially spark a human tar yan crisis. the new president ghani meets with president obama. the plan to slow the withdraw of troops. warning pulling out all american troops by the end of 2016 would have devastating consequences. a house panel investigating the secret service is warning the head of the agency not to come to today's hearing alone. secret service under scrutiny after white house fence jumpers. investigators asked clancy and four other officials to testify later this morning. clancy has already advised he will be the only one attending.
panel members fired back that is not acceptable. let's get an early start on your money. correspondent alison kosik joins me now. what are futures doing? >> we are seeing green arrows. u.s. stock futures are up slightly. we could be in for more gains today. we saw stocks take a breath. the nasdaq closed lower as well. it is still above 5,000. near that high from march of 2000. we want to see if nasdaq hits the first milestone in 15 years. china is a concern. big concern about growth in china. china factory activity slowed in march. the latest disappointment for china. more and more signs that growth is okay and not stellar. that is putting pressure on the
central bank. the growth recently was 7.4%. believe it or not, worse in 24 years. we would love to see growth at 7.5%. >> let's talk about the big baseball deal. louisville slugger. >> big news here. wilson sporting goods is buying louisville slugger brand of baseball bats for $72 million. that for wilson at the louisville factory. wilson also makes the official nfl football made in ohio. >> very good. alison kosik, thanks. 40 minutes past the hour. drama unfolding in the boston marathon bombing trial. what the defense found on the accused computer. well, i just have a few other questions. >>chuck, the only other question you need to ask is, "what else can you do for me?" i'll just take a water...
