10:00 am
-- captions by vitac -- hello, i'm wolf blitzer and it is 1:00 p.m. in washington and 8:00 p.m. in jerusalem, and thank you very much for joining us.
10:01 am
>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. we begin with the breaking news out the middle east, and in last two hours, two more stabbing attacks in jerusalem. police say that a 50-year-old woman is in serious to moderate condition after being stabbed at a bus station. the attacker's condition is unclear at this point. and then another stabbing outside of the holy site in jerusalem. they say a man in fatigues lunged at police at damascus deplaza. these are part of an alarming trend. just yesterday five bloody and gruesome attacks. we have our senior producer ben wedeman who is there right now. what do you know, ben? this is an israeli woman who was stabbed by a palestinian atta attack attacker? is that the assumption?
10:02 am
>> i understand that she was a 50-year-old woman who was knife ed in the upper or the torso. she was stabbed by a man whose name we don't know the identity of yet, and he stabbed her and the statement from the israeli police is that he has been neutralized. as has been the attacks that we have seen so many times, the attacker has been shot, and certainly from the video, it is looking like he has been seriously wounded if not dead. that follows 2 1/2 hours after the attempted attack, stabbing attack at the day may kus gate where a 19-year-old -- damascus where where a 19-year-old is
10:03 am
citizen from hebron came over and when police approached him he took out a knife which the israeli police have posted a picture of on their website, and he tried to lunge at the soldiers. they opened fire, but he e vated that group, and in front of the damascus gate, itself, h he was shot and killed by the border policemen where witnesses say that they fired well over a dozen rounds in the final moments of the man's life. i watched personnel wrap him in a black plastic body bag and carry him away. in the course of the incident because of so much gun fire, one tour itself was likely injure and treatedw seouse ooue ouous
10:04 am
incident took place about 20 minutes after that. and now, this is coming after the three attackers from yesterday, where they come from, but this evening as we were making our way are from the damascus checkpoint, we are seeing buses being stopped and cars being stopped and young palestinian men being frus ikd by gunpoint at one instance, and in that instance, he was allowed to the go away, but tensions higher i have seen, and the only time i have seen it like this is in the second intifada when there was a sea of bombings there in jerusalem. >> we will get back to you, ben, and i understand that the president of the palestinian authority is going to be delivering a speech to the palestinian people momentarily, and we will monitor that.
10:05 am
in the effort to stop the week of violence to erupting into a wide scale operation, government forces are now setting up checkpoints in eastern part of jerusalem, and denying entrance of the palestinians until these attacks are stopped. there is no rebuilding of the israeli government says on the demolition sites. 300 soldiers are backinging up the police across the country. mark is the spokesperson for the government, and so, mark, does this latest atk the show us that the security forces are not working? >> no, on the contrary, we are believing that the mechanisms in place are going to make the situations more secure, and hopefully lead to the de-escalati de-escalation, and the idea is to beef up the security in
10:06 am
jerusalem that detours violence, and deal with the violence if it does break out effectively. and ultimately, we have had 30 violent attacks this month. we've had eight israelis killed and seven others, and we have to do what we can to protect the people. >> and the word is that the frustration level of the palestinians is very tough, because the peace discussions have completely collapsed. any hope for the pa stinian authority and mahmoud abbas to try to restructure the peace talks? >> there is always communication between us and the palestinians, and my prime minister said last week, he is ready to resume the sum the peace talks with the
10:07 am
palestinians immediately without any preconditions here. and you must understand, wolf, these are nothing to do with the peace talks. these people are not interested in reconciliation, but they are interested in killing jews. that is the goal. they are the antithesis and the opposite of peace. it must be understood, they are represent a larger phenomena like isis, and the functional and real tick fen no, ma'am na, a -- realistic phenomena, and the palestinian authority has chosen to the dissociate with these attacks, and the leadership is praising the brutal terrorists, and they must be held accountable. >> so with what are you going to do about it? >> well, we are encouraging the foreign governments, and i will say it on cnn if the palestinian
10:08 am
people want to be considered part of the peace, they have to stand up and categorically condemn this. you can't say you want peace and then have brutal attacks, but not one or two, because we are with 30 of this them. and you expect when these attacks are happening, you expect the moderate to stand up and talk about it, but we have heard nothing of the palestinian governments, and so governments around the world should hold them accountb. >> do you want the secretary of state john kerry to come over there to talk to the palestinian, and the israeli, because there is word that he is thinking about that. >> well, the secretary of state is always a well kovmed guest in israel. with we have had many kon ver igss with him, and including recently, but ultimately for this current wave of terror to de-escalate, we have to first of all take the steps that we need
10:09 am
to take to protect the people in the beefing up of the security in jerusalem and other parts of isra israel. it is crucial. and finally the plo has to stand up to the plate and condemn it. we need them to be responsible behavior and they cannot be praising the attacks. that the islamists and the hamas is, but why is the palestinian auth authority praising these attacks? it is unfathomable. >> mark regxev is the israeli government spokesman. and so the question remains if secretary of state john kerry is go take the test. we are joined by jane harmon, and you have spent a lot of time
10:10 am
immerse ed immersed in the issue, and would it make any difference if kerry heads over to jer ruse hem? >> well, it could, and i am sure pleased that he is considered doing it. i have not heard. but we have invested with the u.s. for years and the jordanians to have a palestinian force to keep the lid on violence for a long time, and almost two decades in the east bank and west jerusalem, and possibly the palestinian government has said no more. what a tragedy if that has happened. i believe that mark regev is correct that dog proportional steps is not a smart idea, but the israelis that visited jerusalem and i just visited because i am there all of the time in june, but if they are
10:11 am
possible, and the policy is to regain the high ground, and this palestinian security force train ed ed by the jordanians could assert more effort to block these young kids from leaving the west bank into jerusalem. that is going to provide a higher measure of security for everybody, including them. and if john kerry wants to encourage that, that is a great thing. >> as you know, john kerry, the other top officials blame israel for the aggressive settlement policy in west bank, and east jerusalem which has played a y maymay mayer -- major role of hampering the peace talks? >> yes. b.b. e net and the yaw shoe who was elected recently hases for formed a government of the majority of the seat s s in the knesset support his settlement policy. that is not u.s. policy.
10:12 am
steps that john kerry could use to ratchet back the anger, and get to the start of the two-state talks and to get to the bottom. >> and we know that there is a meeting in early washington for a meeting. we will see if anything positive emerges from that. thank you, jane harman, for joining us. >> yes. and now, breaking down the debate last night with lincoln chafee, and is he still in the race or about to drop out? we will talk to lincoln chafee when we come back. ♪ it's the final countdown! ♪
10:13 am
♪ the final countdown! if you're the band europe, you love a final countdown. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung,h. it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke.
10:14 am
while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.

10:18 am
says we have the make america great again. and now, last night, polished an poised was hillary clinton. she and her aides tackled income en equality to the war in syria. she defended herself against accusations of flip-flopping on the issues, and confronted the issue of the e-mails head on with some help from bernie sanders. >> reporter: maybe it was the first democratic debate, but it was clear that it was not hillary clinton's first radio. running down the debate list with surgical precision. >> i would not ask anybody to vote for me because of my last name. >> reporter: name, check. progressive, check, check. >> and i'm a progressive, but a progressive that likes to get

10:20 am

l lincoln chafee, and were you pleased or unpleased with your performance? >> well, i was not pleased with the time allocated with 9 minutes out of the debate, but there was a presumption that there would be fair time allocation, but it did not happen. >> and in the polls, you are closer to zero percent than one percent. >> well, certainly what happened last night is one indication of why the establishment does not want to hear the anti-war vote, and they gave me nine minutes out of the two-hour debate, and it is the same thing to get into the sunday shows and the like, and the establishment does not want to hear an anti-war voice. >> how many money have you ra e raised for the campaign so far? >> well, i came into the race knowing the reality that secretary clinton would take the all of the money essentially, and if there were an insurgent
10:23 am
candidate, you could raise money, and for senator sanders is that candidate. i have a budget and living within it. >> and there is some indication that you have raised $30,000. >> yes, and totally expected when i got into the race, and it is not going is not going to be possible to raise a whole lot of money, and so i have been living within my budget. >> and you know that you can't go into four states with a limited ament of money like t t that, and you are a sophisticated politician, and a distinguished career in the senate, and you were elected governor of your home state, why bother right now if you have limited money, and limited support, and why keep going? >> well, the main motivator is what is happening in the middle east and across the world for wars, and why i am running, and
10:24 am
i is set the budget and keep running within it, and set up the issues of what is going to affect future generations, and i have three children and i care what is happening. i want to talk about the issues and be a voice of prosperity through peace and talk about the different combatants to the peace table, and i am looking for the opportunity that didn't occur last night in nine minutes in two hours. >> but you are barely campaigning in north carolina and iowa and other places, so isn't there other ways to get your voice heard? >> well, i have been to new hampshire 29 times, andly be at the jeffson/jackson dinner in two weeks in iowa, and so i am getting to new hampshire and iowa and i am doing it in the budget that i have allotted for myself, and i want to talk about
10:25 am
the issues that is important to me and future generations. something is going wrong. >> the washington post wrote an article, how to disappear completely by lincoln cha feefed this is what the "boston globe" said "lincoln chafee's no-good miserable night." and so you have had a very distinguished career, and i am worried that you will appear to be silly to continue with your limited resources. >> well, it is the establishment who does not want to hear the anti-war voice, and that motivates me more. and yes, i have had a distinguished career, and i have
10:26 am
been a united states senator and governor, and these issues are so important, andly continue to raise them. >> and bernie sanders is anti-war, and he is making that case, and raising millions and millions of dollars and doing remarkably well, but you are not though, right? >> no, i disagree. i have been to many events with senator sanders, and he does not talk about the international issues, and he does not talk about the middle east or north africa, and he does mention it, but it is fleetingly. >> and at what point will you drop out? >> i am in it as far as i can continue to raise the issues. they are important and i feel strongly about it. >> lincoln chafee is the former governor of rhode island and former senator of rhode island, and thank you for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. >> the day after the democrats' big night, did hillary clinton do what she needed to do.

10:30 am
10:31 am
a 15.3 million people watched the debate last night on cnn and it is the most ever for a democratic presidential debate and hillary clinton's goal was to deliver a strong account, and bernie sanders said he wanted to make his message more mainstream, and how did they do? let's bring in alex castellanos, and he is founder of new, and angela rye, former executive strategist for the congressional black caucus, and thank you for joining us. alex, what do you think? did hillary achieve the goal? >> she had a great night, and did what she needed to do. the mission was to make sure
10:32 am
that there was not a vacuum in the democratic party and no place for joe biden to do, a nd she did the job. she was confident, and accessible, and sometimes a little bit grading on the campaign trail, and she had command of the issues, and did well there, and the most important thing, she demonstrated strength. this is a election for the reptilian part of the brain and not the intellectual part of the brain, but it is not the fact of who has the strength to take the reins in uncertain world, but she did as strong as she could, and there are problems for her in the party, because she is not doing well in the general election, but she didn't address that last night, and didn't give the broader electorate a reason to vote for her, and that is not her job >> and she has not done a debate in seven or eight year, and she was debating then candidate barack obama in 2007 and 2008. and she was asked about the
10:33 am
issues of flip-flopping, and this is what she said of the progressive or a moderate. >> i'm a progressive, but i'm a progressive who likes to get things the done. and i know how the find the common ground and i know how the stand my ground. >> what did you think of the answer? >> well, it is appropriate and accurate, and hillary clinton has been made moderate and against bernie sanders, she is fairly moderate, but she is progre progressive and has a record of being progressive before she was first lady, and certainly running as a senator in new york, and before she was secretary of state, so absolutely. as a candidate on the other sidef of president obama when things were a little bit more conservative than they are now, and more moderate, she was still progressive then. >> how did bernie sanders do? >> he got the most out of the debate last night, because hillary did not tell us anything new about her, and she did not
10:34 am
add to what we already understood about her, but bernie sanders is a cause. he had passion last night that she didn't. hillary clinton is a campaign, and bernie sanders is a cause, and causes beat campaigns, because they excite more people, and i thought that he had the best moment of the camp when he said, hillary, i'm tired of the damn e-mail stories, too. and in politics and debates that is the alpha dog debate, and poor hillary, i will stand there and protect you. >> oh, no. >> and angela, we will discuss this in a moment. here is the exchange. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you. me, too. me, too. thank you, bernie. thank you. [ laughter ] >> nice handshake and smiles,
10:35 am
and they were friends after that. >> and the biggest smile from hillary clinton of the night mind you. and there is nothing about hillary clinton like poor little hillary, and she came across as strong, and that is a great leadership moment for bernie sanders, but she had amazing moments. and she was going to be the woman running for president -- >> and did she hit that cause? >> yes. >> why did she hit that? >> because she does not want to be a just a woman candidate, she wants to be the kconfident candidate, and she wants to be the candidate who is going to take her party into the future, and it is almost as if she's putting up this force field around herself, and don't attack me for being sufficiently progressive because i'm a woman,
10:36 am
and it is a weak argument here. >> hmm. >> and i want to talk about the republican field, because we have a brand new cnn/orc poll in two key states. donald trump is ahead in nevada. there is nevada there, and he is at 38%, and dr. ben carson at 22%, and everybody else in single digits. nevada and important early state, and south carolina, and among the republicans, and in south carolina, and 36%, and dr. ben carson half, and everybody else in single digits, and so he is ahead in iowa, south carolina and nevada and new hampshire and ahead in the first four states there, and he is amazing what he has achieved. >> yes, and the people who argued that the person who had the next best night is donald trump on twitter. so he has used the celebrity to garner a lot of attention, and he has used the rogue comments
10:37 am
to get results from the outsiders, and the only one is in south carolina where as the poll said that rubio is ahead of fiorina which surprises me. >> and that is single digit, and not the 30s, but it is amazing what is going on in your party, alex. >> the outsiders are having their day. and the big question for republicans is that assume that the car sson or the trump wins iowa, and what does that mean? one, it means that ted cruz' campaign is dead, because carson and trump will continue through the process to take that conservative wing and lead it. then as you go to new hampshire, it means that the establishment is going to rally and say, okay, what is the alternative and whoo do we have? is that a rubio or fiorina or a jeb bush? that is the way that the race is shaping up right now. >> quickly, because we are out of time. if trump does win the first four states decisively, is it over?
10:38 am
>> i think that we better start putting trump signs on a lot of the government build ings in washington. >> yikes. >> and he is ahead in the first four states. thank you sh, guys. and policies in the debates last night with russia and the national security risk that the united states face faces. stay with us. ♪ every insurance policy has a number. but not every insurance company understands the life behind it.

15.3 million people watched the democratic presidential debate last night and that is the most ever for a democratic debate. they heard the candidates spar over foreign policy issues like syria and iraq and each of them
10:43 am
trying to establish themselves as presidential when it comes to the military and dealing with foreign leaders like the russian leader vladimir putin. let's discuss what was and wasn't said. and now, lieutenant rick francona, and first on putin and syria, and we heard this from secretary clinton and is senator sand ers last night. >> we have to stand up to his bullying, and specifically in syria, it is important, too, that the united states make it very clear to putin, that it is not acceptable for him to be in syr syria. >> i think that he is already regretting what he did in crimea and in the ukraine, and the russian people are going to give him a message that may be that they should come home, maybe they should start to work with the united states to the rectify the situation. >> and rick, anyone show a greater grasp of the risk or the dangers for example of dealing with rush sharks and russia's
10:44 am
involvement in syria? >> yes sh, i am surprised that . clinton's remarks, and she went ahead to talk about establishing no-fly zones in safe areas, and given the presence of the russian military there in sizable force, the no-fly zone is a past discussion. i don't see how we could declare it or enforce it, and declaring it would merely bring the russians into a confrontation that neither side wants, and senator sanders, and i think that he's overstating putin's quagmire. i don't think that putin is regretting what he is doing in syria right now, and he has clarity of purpose, and knows what e shdoing, and he is doing it. he is there to support bashar al assad and he is doing it effectively right now. >> and now, jim, this is a clip here of this when they were asked the major national security threat to the united states right now, and let me play the clip. >> what is the greatest national
10:45 am
security threat to the united states? >> it is certainly the chaos in middle east. >> iran and the spread of aisle. -- and isil? and the nuclear threat. >> and the scientific community is telling us if we do not address the global crisis, and if we do not go a wai way from fuel and switch to fossil fuel, with we will have no earth. >> and i believe it is the middle east. >> and certainly, you won't hear that climate change there, and you had o'malley and sanders mentioning it. and clear differences that you would think that the middle east would be at the top of everyone's list in light of the many crises there, and you can't forget about ukraine or the disagreements with china. >> and china real are ally the
10:46 am
major national security threat, rick? >> well, it is going to be in the future, and you know, the chinese are putting a a lot of money, and the second largest spenders on military hardware right now. they are increasing the size of the navy, and spreading out, and they want to be a global power, and yes, china is a threat down the road, and something to deal with, but like, jim, i was surprised, because i would have thought that russia would have been in there somewhere where, and i didn't hear about the russian threat when asked and the biggest threat. we did hear a little bit about the middle east, but as jim, i was surprised at some of the answers. >> and no question, and we were talking about when mitt romney said to you that russia was the number one strategic threat to the u.s., and now he is proven right. >> and he said the number one geo foe is russia, and i said, are you sure, and i pressed him on it, and he said yes, and he
10:47 am
was attacked for it, and he clearly knew what he was talk about at that time, but it didn't do well for him in the election, but. >> and i asked, what truly keeps you up at night, and you would exthekt tome say terror on the homeland, an kon sconsistently, will be china and russia, and the cyber attacks, and the territorial conflicts in asia and the middle east. those are truly strategic issues that are concerning many of the top officials in the united states. >> and when i ask people in the high security officials what keeps you up, the cyber threat issue is up, and up, and up, a nd they believe it could paralyze the country at some point. >> and it goes back to two countries, china and russia. >> and i think that it was senator webb who laid it out, a strategic threat and operational threat and tactical threat, because when you say the
10:48 am
