identity at risk of being exposed after a hack attack. we are live. good morning, welcome to "early start." >> good morning. >> i'm christine romans, it's wednesday, september 30th. it's 5:a.m. in the east. just a few hours ago, the state of georgia executed female death row inmate kelly gissendaner for orchestrating the murder of her husband in 1997. she had three unsuccessful appeals to the u.s. supreme court and pleas of mercy and from our pope francis, martin satisfy annuvage has the story. >> prison officials put the 47-year-old convicted murder's execution on hold to let the legal process run its course. >> she was very strong and she was very assured in whatever the process weighs going to be and she handled herself with poise
2:02 am
that was just beyond belief. >> but when the last court turned her down, time and hope ran out. her own children begged a parole board to commute her sentence to life in prison. >> she is so supportive of me. i can talk to her about anything, any troubles i have or anything they want to celebrate. i know she's my biggest cheerleader. my brothers and i really want my mom to live. she is all that we have left. >> the vatican weighed in with a letter from the emissary of the pope. quote, please be assured of my prayers as you consider this request by pope francis for what i believe would be a just act of clemency it read. but others felt that her sentence for the 1997 murder of her husband was just. doug gissendaner's parents said in a statement, quote, as the murderer, she's been given more
2:03 am
rights and opportunity over the last 18 years than she ever afforded to doug who, again, is the victim here. she had no mer i have, gave him no rights, no choices, nor the opportunity to live his life. she planned her husband's plumur but did not do it t. beating and stabbing death was committed by her boyfriend, owen got a lesser sentence with the possibility of parole t. disparity between his sentence and hers they focused son evidence of a flawed judicial system. there was life after her conviction in which she turned to her faith, studied theology and counselled fellow prisoners. in a strange twist, two previous execution dates were postponed. one by a winter storm. another the experts said the capitals that made up her leth am injection looked cloudy. she earns two different distinctions the first woman executed in georgia in 70 years
2:04 am
and the last woman on georgia's death row. martin savage, cnn center, atlanta. >> okay. martin, thanks, for that. more breaking news the kentucky county clerk jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples met privately with the pope last week during his u.s. visit. >> that itself word from lawyers for kim davis who say she and her husband spent ten minutes with pope francis at the vatican embassy in washington. for the latest. let's turn to cnn's d'elia gallagher live for us from rome. walk me through this. these are extraordinary claims here. who initiated this meeting? >> reporter: well, let me tell you that the vatican spokesman father lombardi says the vatican will neither confirm nor deny that a meeting took place between pope francis and kim davis. so that is the vatican's statement this morning, anyway. we do know two things. one is that the pope on the
2:05 am
plane back from the united states was asked about his stance on conscientious ob jocks. he says it is a human right and should be allowed for by the law. he was asked, in particular, if that replied to government officials, which he responded government people are human people, yes, therefore, they also have that right. we also know, allison, that the pope met when he was in washington, d.c. with the little sisters of the poor. this is a religious group of nuns who are involved currently in litigation with the obama administration over the contraception mandate. also a situation of conscientious objection. they have nursing homes and health care facilities throughout the united states. he met with them. when hef met with them the vatican spokesman said this is obviously a sign of the pope's support for them in the litigation. so we do know that in a general way, pope francis is supportive of conscientious objection. we should also add that the idea
2:06 am
of conscientious objection has long been a part of the catholic teaching t. pope spoke a lots about religious freedom and for the vatican, conscientious objection is a part of religious freedom, allison. >> what seems to be the reaction of these claims of this meeting between kim davis and the pope? i mean, pope francis is being billed, obviously, as a pope of the people. but kim davis, obviously, not winning many friends these days. >> you know the pope we know does support people in a private manner as well without the vatican making it necessarily public. certainly if it did happen on the trip, they would not have wanted to make it public because it might overshadow the other things that the pope was saying and doing on his trip to the u.s. in a general way we know pope francis is supportive of people who believe with a good
2:07 am
conscience they can fought follow the rule of law. as i said, it's a part of catholic teaching. it's not just a pope francis. . it would be something that other popes have spoken about. pope big and pope john paul, ii, lend support to those people who felt in goods conscience they couldn't follow the law. it also applies to those people in good conscience can't follow catholic law. there is also that exception made for people because the conscience in the catholic idea is the first point of reference. so if your conscience won't allow you to do something, they allow for that right. allison. >> lrpt. kim davis' legal team apparently saying there are pictures that they could release soon. we are looking forward to that. thanks, for that. all right the u.s. is pulling spice out of china, worried this morning that their cover has been blown by that huge hack of government employee records. the u.s. believes chinese hackers were behind the cyber attack on the office of person
2:08 am
nal management that exposed the personal data of 21.5 million federal workers. we are live in beijing. >> reporter: this is an extraordinary revelation from the u.s. officials who told cnn that this simply risks and exposes so many u.s. intelligence agency workers, working right here in china, right now. now, this spans the cia the nsa and the defense intelligence agency. now the cia's own data office of the u.n. intelligence actions has not been exposed according to this u.s. official. but it's the government employees that they are concerned about. 5 pin 6 million fingerprints are out there, too. they believe this is all in the hands of chinese intelligence agencies. they believe that chinese were behind this massive hack attack. china for where it stands has always said that it does not sponsor any kind of hacking.
2:09 am
issued a while ago, the foreign ministry held a briefing. cnn was there. we asked a question about this report. they told us the chinese government firmly opposes any form of hacking. china and the u.s. are the stop two big internet using countries and we both face the same challenges and will gain mutual benefits in protecting cyber security. but just how far does that protect really go, christine? because you will remember, that deal between president xi and president obama last week wasn't far reaching. they managed to agree that they won't hack each other's companies, trade secret itself and intellectual property. that's what u.s. companies have been upset about. they have been losing innovation to chinese companies. it doesn't cover traditional espionage and there is where the waters become murky. the u.s. is known to be one of the best in the world in
2:10 am
intelligence gathering. but president obama wanted to draw a line between traditional espionage, be that cyber or otherwise for national security purposes and special purposes. well, hey this still goes on to perhaps national security purposes as far as china may be concerned even though they deny carrying out this hack zpli think it's fair to say we are in the early beginnings of the behavior between these governments using the internet and hacking. thank you so much for that time. as the government shutdown over funding for planned parenthood now recedeing, at least in the short term, a stop gap funding bill is expected to get through congress today sheparded by john boehner. the house speaker no longer worried about keeping his job now that he's decided to step down. longer term negotiations are set to begin on the federal budget with republican leaders calling for a two year spending plan to

2:31 am
francis, cnn's martin satisfy annual has more from atlanta. >> the effort to spare kelly gissendaner's death went long before she should have been dead. >> she was very strong and she was very assured in whatever the process was going to be and she handled herself with poise that was beyond belief. >> but when the last court turned her down, time and hope ran out. her attorneys weren't the only ones fighting on her behalf. her own children begged a parole board to commute her sentence to life in prison. >> she is so supportive of me. i can talk to her about anything, any troubles i have or anything i want to celebrate. i know she's my biggest cheerleader. my brothers and i really want my mom to live. she is all that we have left. >> even the vatican weighed in with a letter from an emissary
2:32 am
of the pope. quote, please be assured of my prayers as you consider this request by pope francis for what i believe would be a just act of clemency, it read. but others felt that her sentence for the 1997 murder of her husband was just his parents said in a statement, quote, a as murderer, she has been given more rights and opportunity over the last 18 years than she ever afforded doug, who again is the victim here. she had no mercy, gave him no rights, no choices, nor the opportunity to live his life. she planned her husband's murder but did not do it. the beating and stabbing death was committed by her boyfriend, gregory owen. in a separate trial, owen got a lesser sentence life without the possibility of parole. the disparity between his and hers, is evidence of a flawed judicial system. there was also life at her conviction in which she turned
2:33 am
to her faith, studied theology and counselled fellow prisoners. in a strange twist, two previous execution dates were postponed. one by a winter storm t. other the chemicals that made up her lethal injection looked cloudy. she earns two very different distinctions the first woman executed in georgia in 70 years and the last woman on georgia's death row. martin savage, cnn center, atlanta. >> thank you martin for that. more breaking news this morning the kentucky county clerk jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples says she met privately with the pope last week during his u.s. visit. that's a word from her lawyers. lawyers for kim davis, who say she hand her husband spend ten minutes with pope francis at the vatican embassy in walk. liberty counsel matt staver says pictures were taken. they will be released at some
2:34 am
point. d'elia gallagher is live for us in rome. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, christine, i can tell you this morning the vatican is saying they will neither confirm or deny a meeting took place between the pope and kim davis. as you mentioned, kim davis' lawyer confirms that a meeting did take place and said it lasted ten minutes and present were kim and her husband. he says that kim davis said i was humbled to meet pope francis. he even asked many eto'o pray for him. he thanked me for my courage and told me to stay strong. christine, we know pope francis on the way back from his u.s. trip on the papal plane was asked about his support for conscientious objection in general. he said it is a human right and a right allowed for by law. he was asked if that included government officials. he said government officials are human people and, therefore,
2:35 am
they are also included in these rights. we know the pope met with the little sisters of the poor. this is a religious group of nuns that run health care in the united states and are currently involved in litigation over the contraception mandate. at that time on wednesday in washington, d.c. when he met with them the vatican spokesman said it was obviously a sign of the pope's support for the sister's cause. so we can say in general, although the vatican is saying they are not confirming or denying the meeting that pope francis does support the question of conscientious objection. we know he spoke about religious freedom in the united states and for the pope and the vatican, conscientious objection falls under that larger theme of religious freedom. >> thank you so much. the u.s. is pulling out of china worried this morning that their cover has been blown by that huge hack of government employee
2:36 am
record. the u.s. believes chinese hackers were behind the cyber attack on the office of personnel management that exposed the personnel data of 21.5 million federal workers. for the latest on this, a question on this, why do you think did the obama administration not react more firmly against china when it learned about this massive hack? >> well, you know,al "son, that's a really interesting question. >> that is because these are murky territories when we talk about cyber espionage. look, problem has been ramping up the rhetoric over the years, it's not more so over the weeks leading up to president xi's visit, but the problem is that the united states also indulges in cyber espionage. the leaks exposed how extensive it was. what president obama wanted to do is draw a line in the sand so to speak to say, okay, cyber
2:37 am
espionage, traditional espionage for national security purposes, which the united states does carry out is okay. but cyber attack, when you are targeting our companies and stealing our trade secrets and intellectual property not okay. that's as far as the agreement got on friday. that's why it's so hard when we hear people talking about rules of the road with cyber espionage to see where they will draw the line on. that that's where china comes in and says, look, we are not guilty of hacking. although u.s. cyber company versus traced back a lot of the hacks to chinese military units. not this particular one. it's been very hard to trace this massive hack attack. but what the chinese say the u.s. is being hypocriticalal. if they're dock it, why can't we? now, as far as this hack is concerned, it is far reaching and deeper tan we first thought. it is 21.5 million employees as you say t. concern is these are
2:38 am
employees working in china, right now, that need to be taken out because they could potentially be exposed to chinese intelligence officials. these are members of the nsa, the cia and defense intelligence agency that could be at risk of exposure him allison. >> the ramifications of this hack, really extraordinary when you think about it affecting u.s. intelligence gathering in carolina. thanks, for that. >> time for an early start to your money. a big rebound on the last day of this terrible quarter. deflation is back in europe, boosting more stimulus from the central bank. stocks in the u.s. will rise today to close out september. it was the worst quarter in four years. investors wonder if now is the time to get back in for the end of the year. perhaps. this is the narrative for today at least. still plenty of reasons for caution. when will the fed raise interest
2:39 am
rates? will there be a soft landing in china's economy or something more bumpy? will commodity prices find a floor and assuring a political fight in walk. ralph lauren stepping down as ceo. former old navy head stefan larsson will take over the fax empire in november. lauren will stay on as chief creative officer. they have been following revenue. shares up be every the bell. it's so interesting, when you look at old navy, what a different kind of fast fashion lower end retail behemoth it is. how will those two match? >> it will be interesting to see if it seeps into the laurent fashion. i hope it does not. that's my opinion. a massive storm threatening 20 million people on the east coast. flooding in some states has already began. what you can expect today next. ? it runs on optimism.
2:40 am
it's what sparks ideas. moves the world forward. invest with those who see the world as unstoppable. who have the curiosity to look beyond the expected and the conviction to be in it for the long term. oppenheimerfunds believes that's the right way to invest... ...in this big, bold, beautiful world.

2:44 am
rain, that won't go away. >> allison, christine, good morning, guys, it's incredible to think we have a seven inch deficit in the rainfall department for new york and boston. that's all about to change quickly. tropical moisture associated with it from the gulf that association the southern u.s., works across the northeast later this afternoon on the order of two-to-four inches. work your way into southern maine, a possibility of six-plus inches of rainfall in the next 24 hour to 36 hours. of course the concern is we have a tropical storm sitting out there near the bahamas at this hour. the category-1 hurricane. the official track. i notice it meanders with the eastern seaboard there sometimes sunday night. heavy rainfall a possibility. look at the variety of the model now indicating a discrepancy where it will make landfall, certainly plenty of supports somewhere around the eastern
2:45 am
seaboard. if this is the case, what we know we have another storm system off the southern united states, here's what would be hurricane joaquin in place. notice what happens as they merge from saturday into sunday bringing that tropical moisture with a pretty potent low by itself into this region. if this verifys, we are talking some areas getting an extra ten inches of rainfall. it's certainly a story worth following. we will keep you up to date. let's take a look at what's coming up on "new day." >> hi, ladies, great to see you. we will follow breaking news, a with him on death row executed overnight in georgia. this is the first time in 70 years that a woman was put to death. the execution happening after several failed appeals, including one by pope francis. why did so many people want her to get a second chance? and a fiery confrontation on capitol hill between planned parenthood and lawmakers who want to de-fund the organization. we'll hear from both sides, including planned parenthood and

the crisis in afghanistan
2:50 am
getting worse by the hour. afghan forces failing in their attempt to take back the city of kunduz. taliban fighters not only repelling the offensive but also advancing on the local airport. thousands of civilians now fleeing the city. cnn international diplomatic editor nic robertson joins us with more on this sudden resurgence of the taliban. i'm thinking that this new escalation we are seeing really could change the plans for the obama administration to get the majority of u.s. forces out of afghanistan next year. >> new this morning. >> sure, it certainly raises the question, how can you pull out of afghanistan when you are still feed there? what we've seen in evidence here is the taliban in a smaller number than the afghan forces take over a significant and important town. it's u.s. airstrikes that have caused the most casualties to the taliban in this particular situation, striking them outside kunduz the reports now are more
2:51 am
than 100 taliban killed. the afghan government is saying the taliban leader is killed t. taliban is saying that's not true. but the picture that is emerging, this is a worrying picture t. u.n. is saying 6,000 people fleeing their homes. more than 100 civilians so far dead and injured. >> that number is expected to grow, because the fighting continues. the government says the taliban are hiding behind human shields in this very populated area. so on, therefore, when the u.s. makes an analysis of how quickly can we step back and leave the afghan government on its own and not be threatened by the afghan, you can look at it and say they're holed up ostensibly around the airport t. taliban have cut the highway that would allow more afghan troops to come into the city.
2:52 am
