11:01 pm
her kunchcourage makes a rousing speech. >> welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world. i'm errol barnett. >> and i'm rosemary church. this is "cnn newsroom." and we begin with breaking news in the united states. former president george h.w. bush is in a hospital in maine at this hour after falling down and braking a bone in his neck. his spokesman tells cnn that the 91-year-old is in very stable condition. the 41st president of the u.s. fell wednesday morning while at his summer home in kennebunkport. >> we will keep you updated on
11:02 pm
the story. we turn to greece where the parliament has approved tough reforms needed to prevent the country going bankrupt. >> a few other european countries also need to approve the plan then formal talks can begin between greece and its creditors. it's not yet clear when money will start flowing again in the country. the result comes just days after greeks voted against more austerity measures. as parliament debated, protests outside the building turned violent when demonstrators clashed with police. >> elinda labropoulou is in athens and joins us live with more on what is taking place there. there were clashes between anti-austerity protesters and police. and inside parliament one man tore up papers in dramatic fashion but still these measures did pass. how turbulent an experience was
11:03 pm
this for greece? >> reporter: it was a very turbulent experience all around. as you said, while these measures were being debated in parliament protesters outside hurled petrol bombs at police. riot police responded. we had more violence than we've seen in this country for quite a while. but at the same time the vote did pass. we saw 229 votes in support in this 300-seat parliament which sounds better than it is. mr. tsipras did get a lot of votes from the opposition but about a quarter of his own party failed to support him. this is all after mr. tsipras himself admitted this is not a good deal for greece but better to no deal. let's take a listen. >> translator: i will admit that the measures we are tabling are
11:04 pm
harsh and i don't agree with them. i don't believe they will help the greek economy and i say so openly but it's i also say i must implement them. that is our difference. >> reporter: this is the line that mr. tsipras is going to follow. he is going to have a lot of political issues to deal with. we expect there is going to be a reshuffle, possibly as soon as this week. but at the same time the focus now turns back to the banks and what is going to happen with finding a way to reopen the banks, have some liquidity flow into the country. the european central bank is expected to convene on this today and a euro group meeting later today to deal with bridge financing greece needs to make a reloan payment to the european central bank by monday in order not to default its debts there. that's a very crucial payment for greece at this point.
11:05 pm
after politics have spoken we turn to the economy for now. >> we get back to the reality in greece. it is passed its first major hurdle but a lot of business to do and get done this week. i'm wondering what impact prime minister tsipras' comments that he didn't believe in the reforms and didn't think they would work but had to pass them. i wonder how that might impact the next few important steps that have to be taken. >> reporter: it's going to impact the next steps in the sense that people have realized this is not a good deal for greece this is what one in two greeks believe. we had to take it because there was nothing else on offer. this is the line the government is now following as well in a way almost explaining why they had to make this decision. but as the prime minister said you know with this comes hope
11:06 pm
that greece could be getting a better deal a little bit later on. we heard from the imf now asking for debt relief which is what greece had been asking for all along. despite the not positive assessment of the deal so far, some hope at the end of the tunnel there. >> elinda labropoulou live for us once again in athens. thanks very much. the white house campaigned to win support for the iran nuclear deal is in full swing. u.s. president barack obama discussed the agreement for more than an hour in a news conference on wednesday. >> and seemed uncharacteristically emotional and speak off the cuff. he is getting more comfortable. he insisted the deal was never designed to address all the problems with tehran. jim acosta reports the main goal was to stop the regime from developing a nuclear bomb. >> reporter: sounding supremely confident, president obama brush aid side the criticisms of the
11:07 pm
nuclear deal with iran demanding that the opponents in congress read the agreement. >> i think if congress does that then in fact based on the facts, the majority of congress should approve of this deal. but, we live in washington. and politics do intrude. >> reporter: even though he is under fire the president relished the opportunity to answer his detractors. >> i'm enjoying this debate. >> reporter: he praised the agreement's convoluted inspection process. >> suddenly some is miss on the back end, they have some explaining to do. >> reporter: and he insisted that the agreement is more than just postpone iran's nuclear ambitions. >> nothing is holding out hope it will change their behavior? >> i'm always hopeful that behavior may change for the sake of the iranian people and the people in the region.
11:08 pm
>> reporter: and one question about why americans detained in iran were not freed with the deal. >> why are you content to leave the conscious of this nation unaccounted for in relation to these four americans? >> the notion that i am content as i celebrate with american citizens languishing in iranian jails -- major, that -- that's nonsense. and you should know better. i've met with the families of some of those folks. nobody's content. >> reporter: the deal's biggest skeptic, benjamin netanyahu is blasting the inspection process which could take 24 days to look at suspicious sites. >> that's a long time. you can flush a lot of evidence down the toilet. it's like telling a meth dealer we're going to check your lab in
11:09 pm
24 days. >> reporter: the president asked his critics, where is their plans? >> for all the comments by benjamin netanyahu and the republican leadership that has already spoken none of them have presented to me or the american people a better alternative. >> reporter: besides the iran deal the president conceded he won't defeat isis or settle the syrian war while in office and if he would revoke the presidential medal of freedom for bill cosby, he said he does not have that authority. in iran the agreement needs the backing of the supreme liter. >> his first public comments were tempered and he questioned the trust worthiness of those involved. >> reporter: as president obama was defending the deal iran's
11:10 pm
supreme leader was sending mixed signals in a series of tweets he said that the agreement needs scrutiny. the supreme leader loomed large in the talks. today president obama acknowledged the ayatollah's final say over iran's foreign policy. >> during the course of the negotiations in the last couple months every time the supreme leader or somebody tweeted something out we bought into the notion that the obama administration must be giving this or capitulating to that. >> reporter: he stayed true to the message that iran would never give in to the u.s. who he calls the great satan warning, quote, the u.s. should know that the people of iran wouldn't submit to bullying. during the last round of talks in march the ayatollah was
11:11 pm
caught shouting death to the america to the iranian people. >> if the supreme leader vetoed this deal -- >> reporter: a leading expert on iran says that the hatred for america runs deep. >> he is profoundly distrustful of the united states and the hard line forces in tehran who have been chanting death to america for decades. >> reporter: last week as the talks reached a critical phase, the iranian negotiating team refused to compromise on key points and iran's foreign minister was asked whether the ayatollah was ready to do the deal? >> do you have a mandate to negotiate following your trip to tehran? >> i have the mandate to negotiate and i'm here to -- i think we can. >> reporter: and the supreme leader is believed to have already signed off on the deal before the iranians agreed to it in vienna.
11:12 pm
but he will have to respond carefully now that the deal has been made public. juggling the hard liners with many iranians who are hopeful that the deal will improve the economy with the lifting of sanctions and end iran's international isolation. elice labbot, cnn. there was intelligence indicating that bakr was in raqqah. >> despite lose track of baghdadi they are gaining more knowledge of him and raqqah. a u.s. intelligence report offers a snapshot of the increasing number of foreign fighters traveling to syria.
11:13 pm

11:14 pm
doing is good? what is their -- this is education for us too, what is their ultimate goal? what are they doing? what's good? >> they're implementing the sharia and freeing people from oppression. wherever they go they're changing things. finally establishing khilafah. >> ciccolo has become obsessed with islam in the past 18 months. joaquin guzman picked one of two blind spots on his cell surveillance camera to make his big escape. officials are offering a $3.8 million reward for information
11:15 pm
leading to his capture. >> footage shows guzman duck behind his shower and never reappear. we now know of course he slipped down a hole that led to a mile-long tunnel to freedom. that tunnel el chapo used to escape was complete with lighting ventilation and a modified motorcycle track. cnn's nick valencia was allowed to go inside. >> this is the closest we have been allowed to get to his tunnel the tunnel he used in his escape on saturday night. is it a magnificent feat of engineering. let's come on in and see exactly what el chapo here had in store. this is a small little exit. a couple feet wide and a couple feet long. maybe 10 or 15 foot ladder that leads down into that tunnel. the room here is nothing to brag about. it's empty. full of cinder blocks and you

bailout funds. without the money the country will likely go bankrupt. greeks angry over the austerity measures lashed out wednesday in the country's capital. the obama administration is pushing ahead with its efforts to win approval for the iran nuclear approval at home. congress has 60 days to review the agreement and there is vocal opposition from some republicans and even democrats. in the u.s. search and rescue teams found the wreckage of a small private plane that crashed over the weekend in washington state. a teenaged girl was the lone survivor of that crash. she had been flying with her grandparents when the plane apparently ran into trouble. two bodies were recovered from the crash site. japan's lower house of parliament approved legislation that would allow the country to send troops to fight abroad for the first time since world war
11:32 pm
ii. thousands are concerned for the safety of their troops. prime minister shinzo abe says that a bolder security stance is essential. and cnn's will ripley joins me now from tokyo. so will this is historic for the country and protesters are showing their displeasure and concern for their troops. talk to us about the trigger that forced japan into such an extraordinary shift in policy. >> reporter: you're absolutely right. there are a lot of protesters showing their displeasure. even though we are seeing heavy rain from a typhoon bearing down on japan there are thousands of people on the sidewalks and we saw larger crowds earlier in the week. a lot of people upset about the legislation which essentially puts japan in a similar position to many other countries around the world that have militaries that not only defend the country but also engage in military
11:33 pm
actions to defend their allies outside of the country. japan has been as per its constitution post world war ii pacifist for 70 years. now this bill allows for a reinterpretation of the constitution which means that japanese soldiers could fight in the asia pacific or go to the middle east. many feel it is time for this change but there are many others who are fearful of the consequences and don't want to see a return to japan's very dark history during world war ii and before which people are very fearful of some of these folks out here. >> so let's look at why that decision was made why japan decided that it needed to move in this direction. >> reporter: this has been clearly a priority of prime minister shinzo abe. he has made it clear he wants
11:34 pm
this to happen. japan for many years has been pressured by the united states to take a more active role especial you will considering the upsurge of china in this region and just of the geopolitical situation. many feel it's time for japan to step up here. but it certainly is coming at a cost to the prime minister at his peak in popularity his approval rating was 70% and now has dropped to around 40% and a lot of that is due to this unpopular move. it is costing him political capital. >> will ripley reporting there from tokyo with the protesters not happy with this change of direction in japan. many thanks to you. >> we can see the protesters with umbrellas. millions of people are bracing as a typhoon approaches. pedram javaheri joins us with more. is that connected? >> it's not very close. it is a very large typhoon that is sitting out there as far as
11:35 pm
the cloud field associated with it. and japan has seen plenty of typhoon but this one is interacting with mountains. it's not the wind speed that kills people but the rainfall that comes from the tropical storms and typhoons that causes landslides and flash flooding. you can see the clouds associated with it. and here we go with the terrain in southern japan. the city of kochi. we have mountains to the north. and hills to the south and west and well known for the rivers that criss cross across town as well. there is the prefecture right there. notice the colors in the brown, those the coastal plains, the low elevation, the vast majority of the prefecture are mountainous terrain. so as the storm pushes ashore
11:36 pm
will bring a tremendous amount of rainfall especially in the northeastern quadrant. you look at cyclones in recent years that brought in record rainfall. the last was one in 2011 that is 71 inches. that is how much rainfall the storm system dumped. right now we are watching it with a category 1 equivalent. with landfall in the next eight hours. but the models bringing the heavier rainfall; upwards of 250 millimeters is a possibility. this could lead to devastating landslides and waves 15 meetters over the open waters. it will cause coastal problems as well. japan oftentimes we forget is extremely mountainous. there is about 500 ski resorts. so it tells you how mountainous

airmen and marines, real patriotic americans who i know who are being hurt by an outdated confusing inconsistent approach that's contrary to our value of service and merit. christen beck was deployed 13 times to afghanistan, iraq and bosnia but she was afraid to come out as transgender until after she left the military. anderson cooper has interviewed beck extensively and filed this report in 2013. >> reporter: christopher todd beck enlisted with the military in 1990 with the dream of joining the u.s. navy seals the unit with a reputation for being the toughest fittest and most secretive forces in the u.s. military. beck realized that dream serving for 20 years with the seals in
11:45 pm
areas including iraq and afghanistan. a former navy seal says that he had a tell color reputation. by the time he retired from service he had a long list of medals and accommodations. but for 20 years while beck was fighting for his country he was fighting an inner battle over his gender identity. chris beck wanted to live openly and honestly as a woman which is what he started doing after he required in 2011. chris beck is now christen beck. she feels like she is becoming the person she was always meant to be. >> former u.s. navy seal christen beck joins me now from washington thank you for speaking with us. the pentagon could in the coming months lift the ban on transgender people opening
11:46 pm
serving in the u.s. military. as the first strand gender u.s. navy seal what is your reaction to that possible move and why do you think the pentagon is considering this at this time? >> i was elated when i heard the news. it's a great step forward for all of humanity. i mean we are just one more part of society that has been disenfranchised and pushed aside. we are taking a step forward and accepting everyone that is capable for military service and we are capable. transgender people are capable to do many things. >> it is a monumental move and not everyone will be on board with it. what impact do you think this could have on the military and how accepting of this will some people within the military be do you think? >> it will be 50/50. i hope 50/50. there will be people who don't understand. and the reason they don't
11:47 pm
understand or are against it are just out of ignorance and misinformation. i want to say find out more and get more information and they start seeing folks like myself and other people who have served with honor and dignity and served in the navy seals and 101st airborne and special forces. we have served all over the military for years and years. so i have no doubt that we can do very well in the military. they need to learn that themselves. when day do i think they're going to start understanding who we are and what we are capable of. >> and how different would things have been for you if this had happened while you were serving in the military? >> i was in the navy seals. and i'm not sure that i probably would have still continued doing what i was doing before. because my primary concern was service to the country and being a navy seal. i think this might have
11:48 pm
interfered. i don't know. it's a what-if scenario that i don't know if i'm capable of answering to tell you the truth. the hormones have made my strength go away a little bit. i can only bench press about 220 pounds now and my run is down to a six or seven-minute mile. i've slowed down and not as strong as i used to be. but i'm still pretty strong. >> so how likely is it that some transgender people will still be reluctant, perhaps, to come out as transgender? and what needs to be done, do you think to ensure that people feel safe? >> i think that a lot of transgender people will stay in the closet and that's fine. not everybody has to be out. not everybody has to do hormone therapy or surgeries or anything. it's a very wide spectrum of who we are as human beings.
11:49 pm
you can't say one person needs to come out and another one also. if they don't want or need to it doesn't matter. they are going to excel and do a great job and still going to be themselves. they have their own way about it. i think there be a lot. even to this day with the repeal of don't ask, don't tell. i know a number of people who have not come out who are gay and lesbian and that is just the way it is. >> before you go, caitlyn jenner has put the spotlight on the issue of being transgender and accepted the espy courage award and had her critics for that and for being so public. do you think she has helped or hindered the cause? >> in the beginning i had my doubts but i'm proud of her. it's a great step to have someone in a public spotlight, you know that large of a figure, and i'm proud of her.
11:50 pm
i think that this is definitely it's a good thing for the transgender community and for lgbt people overall and america. i think it just shows we are a lot more multifaceted and diverse and wonderful as human beings just -- i think it just shows more of the view of the american people and how diverse we are. and at the end of the day how accepting we really are. freedom and liberty is what we stand for. >> kristin beck thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> an enlightening conversation there. sky divers are supposed to remember the jump not the emergency landing. next why a pilot tried to land along a highway. the story of the bumpy ride, next. bid farewell... to this booking incredible island resort. and it's incredible island staff.
