tv New Day Saturday CNN October 17, 2015 3:00am-6:01am PDT
fight between donald trump and jeb bush intensified. this morning, both candidates are facing backlash for comments trump made about george bush and the 9-11 terrorist attack. heavy rain in california leads to this. >> oh my god, this car is going to hit us. oh! >> help me. >> a woman is trapped in her car when a mudslide hits. but she manages to take amazing video of the scary ordeal. this is cnn breaking news. >> good morning, we are beginning breaking news, three violent attacks in israel in the west bank. you are looking at the after math in one jerusalem neighborhood. these attacks come after a day that a militant group hamas called for a day of rage. we are always so grateful to have you.
good morning to you. >> we want to get straight to this breaking news, three palestinians have been killed in three separate incidents now. israeli authorities saying one tried the stab a jewish civilian. who others, they say, tried to stab border police in jerusalem and headlines in the west bank t. video you are looking at here is from that scene and, obviously, all attackers were killed. we want to go live to cnn international correspondent phil black in hebron where two of today's attacks took place. phil, what are you learning at this hour? >> reporter: christy, we are in hebron, a palestinian town, a small jewish settlement here. so jews and palestinians living in a frequent site of violence and clashes, but what we've seen here today has been the repeat of the recent cycle of violence that has been happening here. we had attempted knife attacks
against israeli jews. that has been met with legal force. street clashes is what issic taking place here. we will zoom into the israeli force position there you see them firing tear gas up the road towards palestinians lobbing rocks in their direction. it's a relatively tense scene. what's making this more tense and certainly from the point of view of the israeli soldiers here the recent attacks specifically, specifically one yesterday where a palestinian who was said to be dressed as a quest photographer lunged at and tried to stab one of the soldiers on the west bank yesterday. what that means an these soldiers have told us, is they are nervous around journalists like us a few moments ago, one
walked to a fairly close distance and lobbed a grenade with press markings all over, it's a sign of nervousness towards the press, towards the media. but it is an extension of the violence we have been seeing here. specifically in hebron this morning, there was a palestinian man shot by a jewish settleer, says, according to israeli forces he was lunged at but the palestinian man tried to stab him and in another incident at a police station or base, a woman is said to have lunged at a knife at a police woman there, she was also shot, christy. >> phil black, you see you there, we appreciate you take good care of your crew there. let's talk to a former official with the state department. thank you for being with us. i want to get to what phil was talking about there, these knife
attacks, some seem to be lone wolf attack, how capable is israeli of dealing with these so-called lone wolves and is that what they are? >> well, it's not entirely clear, it may have started that way, but certainly the hamas militants are encouraging as many political supporters as they can to engage in similar attacks. this is being called the intfatah of jooiv knive, it's creating lot of tension as the last report suggested. there is likely going to be more violence, certainly, israeli is capable of dealing with it. one. that is capable. israeli has a palestinian population. they don't know who may par at this time pace in these attacks. you saw president obama urging both sides to calm their supporters down the administration is really hoping that this situation resolves itself. the u.s. cannot afford another
crisis in the middle east, especially in syria, iraq and turkey are beginning to boil over, but we will see what happens. i expect there will be more violence before this is resolved. >> we knowing is john kerry is set to meet with benjamin netanyahu and spoke with king abdullah of jordan, let's listen to aaron david miller, he's with the woodrow international center about u.s. attempts to mediate this crisis. >> the leadership required to take the risks on israeli and palestinian side isn't there the ownership required to invest israelis and palestinians isn't there frankly, i'm not sure we have the will and skill in washington to steve as affected brokers in media. >> do you agree with that? does washington, president obama, secretary kerry have what it takes to revive the peace
process if any significant form? >> they have the leadership capabilities and they have in some ways their respectives of both sides. they have a tense relationship with both sides as well. but so far, you know as he suggested, we haven't seen that capability demonstrated in results. it's going to take a lot of engagement. it's good secretary kerry set up some meetings. it will take a lot of commitment. it comes at a time when the president also has to focus on some very substantial crises in other parts of the middle east. >> all right. thank you so much for being with us. david will be with us back a little later this hour. we'll very more conversation. we also want to give you this startling new account of the campus massacre at the umpqua community college t. man being called a hero for running towards the danger an warning
his fellow students about this gunman, he is sharing his story. this is through a facebook post. it describes how this normal day in class descended into chaos and in the moment he came face-to-face with the funman, nick valencia is following this story with relearning new details. >> good morning, it's a stunning account of the u.s. army who many credit with helping stop that ucc oregon gunman, for the first time speaking in his own words, giving his account of what happened that day, it's slightly different from what we have been hearing. he starts out with a post saying it started out as a normal day. he joked he thought he was going to skip class. he was talked out of it. he was in class joking around with his teacher. that's when he heard the gunfire, he starts saying gunshots sound like fire crackers going off a counsellor kept screaming, that someone
needed to tell the people in the library and told her i'd do it. he leaned half of his torso out and started shooting as i turned towards him. he was so nonchalant as if he was playing a videogame and showed no emotion. it was a very lengthy post. we are showing you parts of this we will have a more lengthy report next hour. he talked about how this was not about politics or publicity. he apologized saying if this post affects anyone negatively or the victims oafter this shooting, he apologized for. that he says he was shot five times, once in the leg, right leg, left leg, abdomen the top of the shoulder, almost came close to his heart and his left finger. he says the lingering question is why he was not shot again. >> it's a miracle he survived. we will look forward to more details next hour. >> thank you so much. >> thank you, nick. all right. an ugly twitter fight between donald trump and jeb bush.
it intensifies overnight. what they're both saying about george bush and the 9-11 terrorist attacks. why are they both getting backlash this morning? >> plus, overnight arc clang in lamar odom's condition after being unconscious three days. an analysis of legal rice his ex-wife chloe kardashian has to his estate. remarkable video. >> that is a mudslide in california. the video taken from inside a car by a woman who was trapped.
13 minutes after the hour now. donald trump and jeb bush are each on the attack again. the time the republican front runner took shots at george w. bush's record on -11. first look at this exchange of the bloomberg interview. >> you talk about george bush, say what you want, the world trade center came down during his time. >> hold on, you can't blame george bush for that. >> he was president. don't blame him, don't blame him. he was president t. world trade center came down during his reign. >> jeb bush fired back with this tweet, how pathetic for donald trump to criticize us for 9/11, we were attacked. my brother skept kept us safe. s he was asked about his comments in massachusetts. watch this something you maybe have never seen. >> mr. trump, can you clarify, do you think that 9/11 was problem's fault?
>> maybe at fault. >> can i get your comments about 9/11? >> yeah, he hears the question and walks away. trump avoids cnn's questions, then went to twitter right there, at jeb bush, at the debate you said your brother kept us safe. i wanted to be nice and did not mention the world trade center came down during his watch, /11. then he wrote, no, at jeb bush, you're pathetic for saying nothing happened during your brother's term when the world trade center was attacked and came down. we have columnist patricia murphy, first, let's talk about the basics here. why is it acceptable for baby e jeb bush to use as a part of his campaign, his brother kept us safe, unacceptable for trump to state accurately that 9-11 happened during his watch? just the basic rule? >> it's not that it's unacceptable for donald trump to say that, it's acceptable for
trump to say anything t. question is whether it's good politics for him to say. that saying that george bush didn't handle iraq well is something that most republicans are on board with. they are ready to criticize george bush for what happened in iraq and to some extent what happened in afghanistan. very few plub republicans blame george bush or connect him to 9/11, he had been in office nine none p months when it happened. >> that is something you will hear very, very loyal democrats say. i never heard a republican say that. so i think for trump, he can say whatever he wants, whether it's good politics, we will have to see what the fallout is. >> something we never heard, silence from drumplt i mean, he hears the question, he makes eye contact, twice he walks away. >> we haven't seen follow-up from him or his camp to walk that whole lot. he is basically saying i said what i said. i have meant it. i never seen him lean in, i
think i'm not going to answer that question. it looked like he knew he needed to wrap his head around what he said and figure out how to restate or make it back to make republican voters more comfortable with what he's said. >> what do you make of the pushback by jeb bush? >> i'm not all surprised, when he said my brother kept us safe, that was the biggest applause line, many republicans do think he kept them safe. looking back at his entire term, i was in d.c. at the time, expected more and more attacks, it did not happen on a large scale. so to a certain extent, post-republicans and some other people told us, yes, george bush kept us safe. >> let's talk about the democrats, because after what many believe most believe was a strong performance from secretary of state hillary clinton, the lead that bernie sanders had in new hampshire in
the last poll has dissolved they are now head-to-head. is there about her performance or the weakness in what bernie sanders en enjoyed? >> if you look at those numbers, there has been a 14-point swing. buried in that is the increased support. he was at 18 points two weeks ago. he is down to 11 points. i think she is draying support from bernie sanders and some people holding up on the door for joe biden. that's not to say the rates will not continue to change. in 2007, herman cane was in the lead for this exact date eight years ago. so a lot can happen. buff this is absolutely the swing that hillary clinton and her supporters feed to see. we're starting to solidify support. she's going to win in new
hampshire. >> new hampshire, pulled it out for her in 2008. we'll see if that happens now. we are expecting sources tell cnn joe biden could make an announcement in the next couple of days. he's going to run. we will continue to talk about that and the calendar he is facing, patricia murphy, good to have you. >> thank you? stick with cnn as we follow the cnn candidates throughout the weekend. white house hopefuls making stops in key states, iowa, new hampshire, of course, vice president joe biden set the attend in new york. we'll have more on the vp's decision, which could end the next couple of days? you know, a california woman is trapped in the car during this heavy mudslide and she's able to record it from inside that vehicle. we will show you more of this next. it's just riveting. plus, new details of the eexclusive drug king pin el

two jets came within miles of each other. both sides conduct the air campaigns in some of the video you see there. president obama speaking out on the deal, acknowledging there is still a long way to go with respect to the conflict inside syria's border. take a listen. >> the only understanding we've arrived at is how do we co-conflict in the event that our planes and their planes might be occupying similar space over syrian skies. so in that sense we've arrived at an understanding and channels for xhien indications, where we will continue to differ is in the bake set of principles and strategies we are pursuing inside syria. >> joining us from moscow, jill
dougherty, so good to have you with us. the stills, he estimates the documents would be finalized as soon as possible. do we have any time line for this? is deconfliction start momentarily? >> this is one. both sides agree on, because it's technical, making sure the planes are in the air from the united states and from the russians don't collide over syria, but it gets more complicated as you can hear from president obama when it comes to what happens next, what's the political six looking like, et cetera. the russians who sang, "you should talk with us." the americans saying, we're not going to talk, because we don't agree with your strategy. >> so does this agreement that
at least what has been agreed upon at this point does it open the door for a broader or more expansive conversation on other issues? >> you know that is what a russian general today said. he said, we hope, you know, it's a good document. we hope this will open the door to more discussions about a political settlement. but the united states is saying, wooer not going to join any type of negotiations because we think that your strategy as president obama said, bombing your way to a pieceful solution is not going to work t. americans don't want to look as if they are on the side of the russians bombing in behalf of president assad of syria. so until there is some type of you know that they can solve that, it doesn't mean anything
towards a political solution. >> joe, we appreciate it so much. thank you. >> all right for more analysis, let's bring in a former state official. let's join off with the potential for a political solution. the president said there is no military solution here. is there any indication that russia is interested in having that conversation about a political solution? >> well, i think russia's differences are different. the u.s. and europe muddled without a clear policy on syria. from contrast, russia has a very clear policy and objective. they are trying to prop up the say aude regime and help them win. they are making significant progress on the ground, which is really changing the balance of power if syria. ultimately, russia is not going to be successful in helping assad take back the entire country. the majority of the country does
not support assad and never will. and so in some ways, all russia is doing is helping assad gain some additional territory, campaign some additional power, changing the balance of power in syria. but it's not going to be a iraq for syria. the only way there will be a political resolution in syria is if russia changes its view a little bit and takes the position that it's going to help assads to step down. get the regime to compromise with the opposition and come up with a unified government. we've seen no progress on that yet. >> how long is russia in this fight? the "new york times" is reporting they're bringing in large vocations, singers and dancers to entertain the troops who were there and will likely be there soon? >> well, you know, russia took everybody by surprise when they moved into syria. but it appears now that this was well thought out and planned for
months beforehand, so it very well could be russia had the intention to stay in syria for a long time. we've seen military power that we did not expect from russia, new weapons and few aircraft from russia. they seem to be in it for the long haul. and perhaps intend to have a large military base for the permanent future. >> thank you so much for being with us and youring some insight. >> thank you. fresh off a record setting debate, a few days before she is scheduled to testify in front of congress, hillary clinton spock exclusively to cnn's jake tapper on a number of to be topics, including benghazi. good morning, jake. >> i'm here in front of beautiful keen, new hampshire, hillary clinton has pulled ahead of bernie sanders in the first poll taken since the democratic debate. we talked from everything from her marriage to bill. they celebrated their 40th
anniversary to her republican rivals who she is preparing to take down next week. >> you are schedule to testify against the benghazi in a few days, what are you expecting? what are you prepare sfg. >> i don't know what to expect. i think it's pretty clear that whatever they might have thought they were doing, they ended up becoming a partisan arm of the republican national committee with an overwhelming focus on as they admitted to slide down my poll numbers. i have already testified about benghazi to the best of my ability before the senate and the house. i don't know that i have very much to add. this is, after all the 8th investigation. other standing committees with experienced members and staff have all lock looked into this and rejected the conspiracy
theories that are still floating out there in some circles. i don't know,ly do my best to answer their questions. i don't know what their objective is right now. >> there's lots more to our investigation, can you watch it all on sunday at the state of the union at 9:00 a.m. and noon eastern. as jake mentioned, you can see more of his exclusive interview with hillary clinton, this sunday on "state of the union" 9:00 a.m. eastern. right here. new details of a fatal beating inside a church, where he worshipped in upstate new york. his parents were in court charged with first degree manslaughter. cnn is there, too. also overnight a clang in lamar odom's condition after being unconscious three days. we'll have an update on what's happening there and the legal fight brewing between chloe kardashian and his children. ♪

. we got new details of a fatal beating of a 19-year-old inside a church where the parents worship. >> the boy's parents are to blame and they were a part of a beating session? >> reporter: the case surrounding what happened inside this church behind me now will be heading to the grand jury. police call eight savage beating. although the motive is still somewhat unclear.
bruce and debra leonard did not testify today. instead, they sat and listened to damaging testimony about what allegedly happened in that church counseling sex. in the end, their 19-year-old son lucas was dead, their son christopher left in serious condition. daniel irwin, a deacon at the word of life christian church told the court he so you bruce leonard strike both of the boys. he said leonard hit his son lucas several time. i heard the sound of a strike. stop, then it started again. irwin also told the court, he saw lucas was bleeding from his leg, moteing, rolling back and forth on the floor. irwin said he also saw leonard strike his younger son christopher five or six times, something that looked like a belt. he recalled the beating went on for 14 hours, starting around 8:00 sunday night, lasting until 10:00 a.m. the next morning. when asked why the beating
finally stopped? irwin said because luke was dead at that point. he said several church members, including leonard's own brother, christopher, and his father tried performing cpr, it was too late. >> would you loo tobacco elaborate a little more about what happened inside and tell us about your experience? >> oh, no. >> reporter: outside court irwin would not comment about his motive or allegations the counseling session was ordered because leonard wanted to leave the church? but the leonards are facing manslaughter charges in the death of their son, four others, including the boy's step sister are facing assault charges, all have pled not guilty. police say they have not concluded why the session turned violent. bruce leonard allegedly told investigators his sons may have molested children who long to the church. police say there is no indication of that whatsoever. they say seven children here from the church were taken into protective custody, they were
interviewed, examined, police say there is no indication any of them were sexually assaulted. >> the deceased and his brother are victims in this horrible crime and i want to put out there again there is no evidence that these brothers did anything. they are at this point true victims. >> debra leonard's attorney believes his client is also a victim, saying deborah did not have the physical strength to beat her sons, debra leonard claims she only took part in the beginning, but that other church members held the brothers down while the beatings took place. >> i have indicated before and will continue to indicate, we are looking at other charges and if other people should be chargeled, we shall present that to a grand jury. >> reporter: the da has 45 days from now to present its case to the grand jury. as you heard there, by the time the da does that, expects more charges, more possible arrests. victor, christy.
up next, we have those new details we discussed on the condition of lamar odom. he has been unconscious several days now. we will get you the details of his condition, also the legal fight between chloe kardashian and odom's children. also, a woman is rescued from heavy mudslides, but it's all caught on tape. we have this story and the latest on those mudslides new at 7:00. .
49 minutes past the hour. encouraging news for two time nba champion lamar odom t. coach saying odom woke up yesterday afternoon, remember he's at a las vegas hospital. at the time doctors removed breathing tubes and other life saving equipment and a source says odam was able to say hello to his estranged wife, chloe kardashian. the two served divorce papers. they were never finalized. chloe is alouded to make legal decisions for odom. now he is awake, joey, what does that mean for the control of money of what happens to him in the hospital and the battle is supposedly between him and her children? >> good morning. the answer depends, it may not necessarily mean he's competent even though he's awake.
there is a distinction between the two. usually what happens is the law provides for a hierarchy for people to make medical decisions net event you cannot make them for yourself. so therefore his wife, still his wife, even though they were undergoing divorce proceedings, to the extent they're not finalized, of course, she then would have decision making authority. it provides a hierarchy in general the wife, in the event you don't sister a wife, it goes to adult children if any and parents and adult sibling, so he is up. let's hope that he's okay. let's pray he's confident and able. if he's not confident, although, he's awake, she would still call the shots. >> i want to ask you about this brothel. we understand workers say lamar was using cocaine the brothel might be lee. we know cocaine is not. do you see anything in this whole picture regarding this
brothel that would make them liable in anyway for something? >> you know, still early to tell, of course, because there will be an investigation. we know that nevada has laws concerning things that go on. to that extent, it's fine. then it comes down to a question of are they in anyway negligent or irresponsible? did they enable him in anyway? did they assist him in anyway? there is a difference between providing for someone's entertainment an enjoyment and providing something in excess where they knew or should have known that something could go amiss. so i think, christy, this will be looked at in two ways, certainly from a civil perspective and also from a criminal perspective in terms of whether they did anything wrong or illegal as offensive af begins those laws, to be clear, we don't know yet, it's still early, you better believe based upon the nature of this case, many eyeballs will be watching to find out the facts. >> eia, no doubt.

flash floods people are concerned about in california. >> let's check in with allison, is there more on the way? or do they have to clean up what already came down? >> both. it depends on where you are talking about. some areas, it's the clean-up process, for others, it's kind of keeping watch as more rain begins to move back if. this is the last three days. you can see a lot of areas are two to four inches. overall, a couple weeks ago, we had the south carolina flooding. these numbers in and of themselves are not that high. however, keep in mind, the valley north of the santa clarita area, you see right here, 3.83 inches in one hour. >> that officially makes that area a one in 1,000 flood event. similar to what we have in south carolina, obviously the numbers were a little different. here as we continue to push a little farther, you notice we have the flood threat in effect, california, nevada, and southern utah, where we expect more of that rain to begin to push back if. the totals again still fought as
impressive as we what saw a couple weeks ago, it is, when you have that scaring, because of the wildfires, it doesn't take much rain to cause a lot of these mudslide. you notice as we go through saturday, more of that rain is expected. two, four, slightly higher than four inches possible in a few spots, again the key thing to foy, we can't pinpoint exactly where the mudslides will be, the best area is where you have scaring from the wildfires, those will be the first places that you ends up seeing some of those mudslides. >> allison chinchar, thank you so much. we want to get you this new act this morning of the campus masser is at the umpqua community college in roseburg, oregon, the for the first time, the nan hailed for running towards the danger and warning students, he is sharing his story. he describes how this normal day
descended into the massacre we all now. and the moment he came face to days with this gunman. nick valencia has these new details. good morning. >> he did what we would all like to think what we would do if present theed with circumstances, sacrifice your own safety, now for the first time, we are hear income his words what happened that day. >> as many as planss as possible. we have upwards of 20 victims. >> chilling new details in the oregon community college massacre from shooting survivor, the army hero charged with with helping others. >> he's in the classroom. >> reporter: in a facebook posting, he recalls the day he says started out as normal, quickly descended into chaos. he writes, there was a bunch of yelling and there was gunshots sounded like fire crackers.
he sat in front of the class and says everyone took off. i stopped and held the door opened and waited for everyone to leave saib safely, he said he then took direction from a counsellor that kept screaming someone needed to tell the people in the lie bear, i told her, i'd do it. >> somebody is outside one of the doors, shooting through the doors. >> he writes he went into the classroom area and came face to face. he leaned out an started shooting. as i turned towards him. he was so nonchalant through it all like he was playing a videogame and showed no emotion. he says the shots knocked me to the ground and says he was shot again while oak and that the gunman said, that's what you get for calling the cops. he writes in a facebook post he told the didn'tman, he didn't call police and they were already on the way. he then yelled to the funman, it's my kid's birthday, man, he
says the shooter pointed the gun right at my face and retreated back into the classroom. >> hello, everyone, i'm doing well. >> a friend posted this video in the hospital. he since has been released and hand this lingering question. i'm still confused at why he didn't shoot me again. he posted that statement last night. he said in his post he decided to post on facebook, he didn't want to do an camera media interviews to him. he says this is not about politic, it's not publicity. he was shot five times, once in the leg, once in the abdomen, once in the top shoulder that came an inch within hitting his heart. he says the lingering question is why his life was spared that day. victor. >> it tells the gunman, it's the kid's birthday. amazing he is alive. >> thank you so much. . all right, let's talk about the 2016 presidential race and the
intensifying twitter feud between donald trump and jeb bush. it really afternoons up overnight. after the republican front runner took shots at president george w. bush's 9-11 issue. >> when you talk about george bush, say what you want, the world trade center came down during his time. >> hold on, you can't blame george bush. >> he was president. don't blame him. don't blame him. he was president. the world trade center came down during his reign. >> jeb bush fired back tweeting quote how pathetic for donald trump to criticize the president fort-11. we were attacked. my brother kept us safe. it didn't end there, particular after cnn asked trump about his comments later in the day. let's go to cnn, i don't know that i've ever seen donald trump walk away from a microphone. >> so you are exactly right the story did not end there. after a campaign rally, our very own m.j. lee caught up with trump. she asked him point plank, did
he the george b. bush was responsible for the 9-11 attacks, here's what he said. >> mr. trump, can you clarify? do you think 9/11 was problem's fault. >> is that your comments about /11? so a shockingly quiet trump there, christy, he regularly takes questions from reporters. so it's unusual for him walking away without responding, trump wasn't done there. a few minutes later, he took the twitter instead. here's what his first tweet said. he said, quote, at the debate, you said your brother kept us safe. i wanted to be nice. i did not mention the world trade center came down during his watch 9/11. then he tweeted, no, jeb bush, you're pathetic for saying nothing happened when the world trade center was attacked and came down.
so you know that last week christy has a real kind of i know you are what i am to it, a real tit for tat. that's kind of how this twitter feud has been going for months. trump hit bush for immigration. he's retweeted messages calling bush crazy, calling on him to stop speaking quote mexican. so this is really just the latest chapter in a long running twitter feud between bush and trump. we'll see if bush responds today. >> thank you so much. i'm amazed it's come to this. twitter feuds amongth candidates. be sure to stick with cnn throughout the weekend. it is a busy one. white house hopefuls making stops in key states such as iowa and new hampshire. vice president joe biden set to attends and i vent tonight in new york. is he going to make an announcement? later this hour, we will have more on the bp announcement
which is said to be imminent. look at this mess, a huge portion of scaffolding. watch it fall, trapping several construction workers. we will tell you what rescue crews were worried about most. check this out. this dust storm sweeping into arizona, causing huge problems for drivers there. also hillary clinton opening up to jake tapper in an interview talking about benghazi, trump and whether the vice president soumd make a run for the white house. certainly i'm not in anyway suggesting or recommending that the vice president accept any time table opener the one clicking inside of him.
and went after police officers and a civilian. the video you are looking at here is from the nrnd in jerusalem. cnn international correspondent is in hebron. i saw you looking behind you. is something going on behind you right now? >> yeah, we will take you strak e straight to what is going on at the bottom of the hill. you will be able to see young palestinians behind barricades, hurling rocks using sling shots there. they're lobing those project aisles up towards israeli defense soldiers, which are a little further up the hill around the corner there. what we are seeing here today is really an extension of the cycle of violence taking place here for some weeks now. in hebron as you mentioned today, according to israeli officials, there have been two atexted knife attacks, one against a jewish settleer that lives in this political city. another against an israeli police officer, a woman in both
sais cases the palestinians wielding knives were shot and killed. the shooting of those palestinians is what triggers this wider violence the clashes you see going on behind us just here. so there is what's been hang here for two weeks now. ever since this strange new surge of violence, which has involved palestinians off and on with knives and cutting implements randomly attacking jews and israels on the streets. it's largely in israel, east jerusalem. we are seeing these attacks triggering these broader street violence we are seeing taking place here behind us now. the result of this two week surge in violence according to israeli government is seven dead, effectively knifed down in the streets this way. palestinian officials say some 30 palestinians have been killed in the often lethal response to those knifeing attacks, christy. >> i think what is so striking,
phil, what what you just showed us there is it looks as though one of those people hurling rocks was just a kid that was almost being, then we saw a couple people look leak adumbs coming in, coaxing him. training him in some way. but how young are some of these people engaged in these fights? >> they're young, teenagers perhaps, others younger, but men still. that's a common occurrence here in these sorts of street clashes between palestinians and israeli forces, you see them lobing with tear gas, rubber bullets or sometimes lethal fire. real fire as well. that's the cycle we see here,
what we have been seeing particularly with these knife attacks the other disturbing element is the youth of the attackers. they are teenagers or young men who are taking it upon themselves, not acting won orders, themselves so take knives and attack israelis in the way we have been seeing here. >> it's so worrisome. you worry if these random attacks may lead to organized attacks later on. we so appreciate the update and the images. stay safe there, too. >> the governor declares an emergency right now in hawaii. this is not over. violence or a severe weather event. why homelessness is now a priority. >> new details on the search for emchap zpo, why authorities think they could be closing in on the drug king pin. zplmplts
the drug pin better known at el chapo, he was injured while evading authorities. they launched an investigation to recapture him based on intelligence they received. they did get away. they say he sustained injuries to his face and one leg. he broke out of prison in july has been on the run ever since. >> now to hawaii, the governor declared a state of emergency, to address homelessness, 1.3
billion happy birthday used for temporary housing and an extension of contract tea say they had the highest per capita rate of homelessness among the 50 states. >> look at that scaffolding just crumbling. >> in second it all came down. six construction workers were injured outside of houston, officials say all of the injured were workers, not first responders or anybody passing by a. senior captain said there is no confirmation of missing workers. although about 100 firefighters are still looking. incredible images from phoenix, this large dust storm blanketed the area friday. look at it rolling in here. it's known as a haboob. it developed as a result of the same system that brought floods to southern california. that system brought warm air to
arizona which led to the wall of dust you see here. president obama deciding to keep troop levels up in afghanistan. a lot of people and critics say it could be too little too late. okay, let's put it out there. should joe biden run? hillary clinton weighs in on the potential white house bid. we got the new tempur-flex and it's got the spring and bounce of a traditional mattress. you sink into it, but you can still move around. now that i have a tempur-flex, i can finally get a good night's sleep. (vo) change your sleep. change your life. change to tempur-pedic. it wouland it turned onif you turned oeverywhere else.ne room but that's exactly how traditional cooling and heating systems work. so you pay more than you should. but mitsubishi electric systems give you a better way... with no waste and lower energy bills. control temperatures precisely in one or every room ... ...with no new ductwork. so everyone can enjoy ultimate personal comfort.
mitsubishi electric cooling and heating. make comfort personal. with their airline credit card miles. sometimes those seats cost a ridiculous number of miles... or there's a fee to use them. i know. it's so frustrating. they'd be a lot happier with the capital one venture card. and you would, too! why? it's so easy with venture. you earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. just book any flight you want then use your miles to cover the cost. now, that's more like it. what's in your wallet?
>>. >> oh my god. >> all right. look at this, another round of rain heading to california after what we're seeing here. this was days after parts of california were walloped by severe weather. it came down so quickly. so much at once. major mudslides, flashed flooding. look at this clean-up crews had to use street sweepers to clear off some of the roads. not everything is opened. the southbound lanes of interstate 5 are still closed.
>>. >> oh, now, to a cnn exclusive. hillary clinton sits down for a one of one interview. the comes after pundits applauded her in new hampshire. this is a critical debate here even as discussions swirl about vice president joe biden potentially entering the race, r. cnn met in new hampshire and spoke about the debate. good morning, jake. >> reporter: that's right. i'm in beautiful keen, new hampshire, the granite state where hillary clinton pulled ahead. one of the questions is, is vice president biden going to be at the second presidential debate for the democrats? i asked her if time is running out?
you've said in the past vice president biden should take the time, the campaign is now signaling it may be time to make a decision, your top adviser said this week, quote, i think the time has come for a decision. has the time come? >> well, that's up to vice president biden. >> that's your top adviser? >> i think what john was saying is that whether you are encouraging or not. there does come a point where a decision has to be made. but certain lip, i'm not in anyway suggesting or recommending that the vice president accept any time table other than the one that is clicking inside of him. he has to make this decision. >> we talked about much more, of course, including afghanistan, benghazi, her e-mail server, making college affordable. bernie sanders, you can watch it all sunday on "state of the union" on 9:00 a.m. and noon eastern. let's talk now, we have a
democratic strategist, also with justin chafee, a top adviser to jeb bush. paryia i want to start with you, a biden adviser, a supporter, telling them the vice president needed their support quote yesterday. so the calendar is forcing biden to make a decision, what's the impact of this delay? >> well, in terms of the timing, i agree with hillary clinton. joe biden is the only one to make a decision to jump in. with his family t. calendar and the clock are ticking from what they could wait as long as the end of october in terms of making a decision whether to
jump in or not. my sense is if they are going to pate, they will wait until after hillary clinton does the testimony at the benghazi committee to see how that goes. there are various high level speeches to democratic groups at the end of okay as well. so i think they are really looking to physical out whether the vice president wants to do this or not t. letter sent out was something smart to tell those who were getting worried in terms of timing that there is still time but the fact of the matter is at the end of this month, a lot of the windows close. at the end of the day, the only person that can make this is joe biden. i'm hearing people close to him say he hasn't decided yet. he's having all the right moves, in order to be ready. but we don't know if that will happen or not.
>> let me come to you with something hillary clinton said about donald trump. >>. >> i have called him out on things that he said some of the insults and attacks he's made on immigrants, on women, it's unacceptable. less be said about the president. i'm going to continue to criticize him for going beyond the bounds of what i think is appropriate for anybody running for president. >> and in that narty, what about this latest comment from trump saying, pointing out that george w. bush was president when 9/11 happened? >> well, look, donald trump is very unpredictable. he says a lot of things. i think hillary clinton and donald trump is unique, we know
he wrote a big check to the clinton foundation, we know that chelsea clinton is good friends with his daughter. it's an interesting dynamic. i am struck to see hillary clinton criticizing her friend donald trump a little bit. i know she has to do it for political reasons. with respect to donald trump blaming problem. i think a lot of voters will not give him the benefit of the doubt or not that will hurt him with voters. >> the last fragment of your sentence is he is not going to get a pass. it could applied with john mccain and megyn kelly. to many of the ought things he's said. he's been number one at the top of the polls for three months now. jeb bush has been trying to get a grasp. why is that happening? >> sure. well, look. you got ten candidates running. a poll of ten candidates in it.
and donald trump has gotten 29%. seven out of ten republicans do not support donald trump. most of the overwhelming majority don't support donald trump. in a field of ten or 11 or 15 candidates, he's number one. we saw him with scott walker, leading the polls, he is now out of the race. donald trump should be careful, the same fate could happen to him just as it happened to scott walker. >> are democrats preparing for a general election against donald trump, does it seem more likely now that this is not just the summer of trump? this is trump's cycle? >> it definitely seems more likely, victor, i know that republican strategists are just completely keeping themselves up with this thought. there has never been a candidate at the lead for so long with numbers that are so deep that have not gotten the nomination. >> that it doesn't mean that he
will. but i really think that republican strategists need as to guard themselves for the real possibility that donald trump will be their nominee. just in this right the majority of republican voters right now don't support donald trump. but that also means that even more republican voters don't support jeb bush, don't support marco rubio, you mentioned they are in the single digits. so what can we imagine donald trump saying or doing that he hasn't done or said up until now that would actually bring him down in the eyes of republican voters? hillary clinton has been the only one the adult in the room and has taken him to task for things utterly offensive to voters. republicans squirm, but that's the truth. >> it was quite interesting to see him walk away from mj lee who asked him twice about hit comments, he went to twitter. we will talk more about that.
thank you both. >> thank you, victor. you know, president obama decides to keep troop levels up in afghanistan, critics say it could be too little too late. at least one candidate agrees with the decision. also an officer caught on his own body cam shooting and killing a 17-year-old. he was cleared. hear what the family of that teenager is suing the cop. mcgladrey was founded to help growing businesses reach higher goals. soon our team of audit, tax and consulting advisors started taking the middle market to the global market. and now our network, spanning more than 110 countries, is unifying under one brand. mcgladrey is changing its name to rsm. experience the power of being understood. 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. 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®.
hillary clinton says she is standing be i the president as he delays a plan to withdraw american troops. listen to part of the interview. >> president obama is a perfect example of a leader who has strong convictions of what he would like to see happen, also pays attention to what's going on in the real world. his decision is one i agree with. i will not sit here and say what i would do, again, we want to bring our troops home. we certainly den want them endpanled if on the ground combat. >> former secretary clinton is talking about this, the president's plan to leave thousands of troops in afghanistan. right now, there are 9800 troops in country. the u.s. had planned to leave 1,000 troops there at the end of the president's administration. now that plan is scratched. there will be 5500 stationed if four key areas in kabul, around
the embassy, bagram air force base to protect the air resources to talk about this plan. we are joined by marine corporate veteran sergeant patrick miller. his units a one of the first in afghanistan in 2001. i want to just get your reaction. warp you thinking when you heard about this reversal that there would be 5500 troops there at the end of the obama administration? >> you can decide who are you leaving there? conventional military or special forces? what is the true mission and goal and what defines success? we need the clear definition of success. is it worth our losss to stay any longer in afghanistan? >> the state department says the mission has not changed, training, advising afghan security forces there, do you think the u.s. is making any
advancement in accomplishing either of those goals? >> well, we have been trading security forces 15 years now at what point are they going to be ready to defend themselves, in fact for their own kund? >> do you expect 5500 won't be enough. >> i personally don't think it's enough. >> is there a number with your experience you think is more feasible? >> i would say that's above my pay grade. >> i respect that. let me ask you what the "new york times" is reporting. >> that the afghan government is considering expanding the local police program, what we're talking about here in the advising and training, these would be some of the smaller local militias, the president did not want to do this the u.s. administration did not want to do this. what do you think of the expansion of the local police department? >> you have to remember, afghanistan is ran by tribal
communities. who can you trust and not trust? then you have the problem with training their forces and the green on blue attacks we have been experiencing. >> what do you feel 14 years after you first went into afghanistan looking at the situation and the condition of the country today? >> i feel 15 years is too long. we have to look at it as are we willing, i'm willing to deplay in the face of growing threat to keep my children safe here rather than have the threat coming to my doorstep? you look at the threat of al qaeda the taliban and isis now in afghanistan, we got to decide whether we want to bring that fight over there or bring it to us? >> thank you so much for speaking with us as we try to explain and understand what's happening there and what will be there in the next 18 months or so. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> christy.
>> the family of a michigan teen says his civil rights were violated during this traffic stop that ended in his death. now they've filed a federal lawsuit. we'll talk about this one. also, heisman trophy winner johnny manziel admitting to drinking after getting pulled over by police, what this could mean for the nfl quarterback now.

beams. >> you had your brights on, sir. >> reporter: he begins recording their intersection on his cellphone and continues to not cooperate. >> you can get with with the program and start to comply or you'll be taken to jail. >> reporter: the officer called for backup. two times. as the situation escalates, backup doesn't come. >> you do not have your driver eye lee accep license? >> yes, i do. >> if you had complied, if would have gone a different way. >> reporter: the officer orders him out of the car. >> out of the car or you'll be tased. everything is being recorded so i got the no problem with it. down on the ground now. >> oh, my gosh. stop yelling at me. >> down on the ground. right here facing me. down on the ground now. >> what do you mean? >> get on your belly right now. put your phone down and put your arms out to your side now.
>> reporter: sergeant frost kicks gilford's cellphone away. >> i don't have a weapon. >> get your hands behind your back. >> reporter: just about 90 seconds before backup arrives, sergeant frost tases gilford, but he's too close for it to work properly. roughly 14 seconds later, you hear gunshots. sergeant frost says gilford hit him repeatedly with his fist. take a look at this slo-mo frame by frame. you can make the scuffle out just a little more clearly. >> priority backup. i'm bleeding. >> reporter: this body cam video captures sergeant frost at the scene transported to the hospital with these injuries. >> small abrasion to the back of the head. >> reporter: gilfor dd's family
says the traffic stop was illegal. >> they are outraged. it boggles their minds how the kid could be stopped for flashing his lights and be dead five minutes later. >> reporter: but prosecutors cite the michigan safe driving manual which states it is illegal to use or even flash high beam headlights within 500 feet of and oncoming vehicle. the officer cleared of all wrongdoing. the prosecutor concluding that frost was acting in self-defense, that he reasonably believed that he would die or have serious bodily injury. among the cited evidence, damage to the body camera. it was in pieces around the area. and the medical examiner's findings that gilford's wounds were from the front indicating a struggle. the family now filing a federal and civil lawsuit alleging the officer used excessive force, violated their son's constitutional rights and wrongfully you caused his death. >> thank you so much.

new details this morning on nfl quarterback johnny manziel and his latest run-in with police. officials say earlier this week he was pulled over after a dispute with his girlfriend. manziel admitted to the police that he had been drinking. they were questioned. no charges were filed. so last hour we asked everyone at home, who is the biggest heisman disappointment? well, nine year nfl veteran and cnn sports anchor here with the answer. >> and we have a lot of great answers, but this is a disappointment for manziel. his girlfriend told police that
he had shoved her head against the window and he's drinking again. so he's been a disappointment. but let's take a look at your responses. chris said unfortunately this is a long list. and it will soon include rg3. and he was jason white never got drafted or perhaps charlie ward who went to the nba instead. so that was disappoint to go some. frank said the biggest, charles white from usc.to go some. frank said the biggest, charles white from usc. and brian bosworth, but he finished fourth. bob took to a turn. he said none worse than o.j. simpson. had a great nfl career, but a huge disappointment. and someone agrees. no comparison. so very good responses. howie said johnny take the simple advice, check yourself
back in to rehab fast. he's concerned. he said for real no joke. and clearly johnny manziel has some issues. he hasn't yet learned unfortunately. but great responses. thank you so much. >> thank you. all right. there is so much more to talk about with you this morning. >> next hour of your "new day" starts right now. new this morning, details from the oregon college massacre. for the first time, we're hearing what happened from the army veteran being called a hero. he tells the story of how he saved others. and overnight, the twitter fight between donald trump and jeb bush intensified. this morning both candidates are facing backlash for comments trump made by george bush and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. and heavy rain in california leads to this.
>> oh, my gosh, this car's going hit us. oh, my gosh! >> a woman is trapped in her car when a mud slide hit. but she managed to take amazing video of the scary ordeal. >> this is cnn breaking news. >> we're always so grateful for company. we start with breaking news out of the middle east. the rash of knife attacks and the growing tensions extending into the weekend now. three more palestinians have been shot and killed in separate incidents in jerusalem and west bank city of hebron. >> they went after police officers with knives and a jewish settler. phil black is hebron where two attacks happened. and i know you're looking over your shoulder. what is happening there now?
>> reporter: we'll show you straight away. so are where we are is hebron, a jewish settler community of some 7,000 people inside. what we're seeing down toward the barricades is children really, teenagers perhaps at the oldest, pretty regularly hurling rocks, projectiles, in toward israeli soldiers just around the corner there. you can't see them from where we are standing here. it's a little calmer now. it was more violent through the morning. but all of this is a response to the same circle of violence we've been seeing repeated here. these people are the on street today because of two knife attacks that took place in hebron earlier. palestinians wielding knives who tried to attack and presumably tried to kill jewish settlers.
and in both cases, the palestinians were shot and killed. and the response is street violence. the last two weeks, that was when this strange new phenomenon of knife attacks, street attacks by young palestinians, teenagers sometimes young men, attacking israelis on the streets with knives and cutting implements. and the human cost of that has been pretty high in the sense that accept israelis have been killed since the start of october as a result of the attacks. palestinians say as many as 30 more have been killed in the israeli responses to those attacks. what all this shows is that these knife attacks are continuing. that's what we're seeing here in gentleman reese ljerusalem here today. >> phil, thank you so much.
let's talk about the 2016 presidential race now intensifying. some twitter feuds specifically between donald trump and jeb bush. after the republican frontrunner took shots at george w. bush's record on 9/11. here's what he said to bloomberg. >> when you talk about george bush, say what you want, the world trade center came down during his time. if you -- >> hold on, you can't blame bush for that. >> he was president, okay? don't blame him or don't blame him, but he was president. the world trade center came down during his reign. >> so jeb bush fired back tweeting, quote, how pathetic for donald trump to criticize the president for 9/11. we were attacked and my brother kept us safe. and it didn't end there particular ply after cnn asked trump about his comments. i don't think i've ever seen donald trump walk away from a microphone. sf >> that was one of the biggest surprises last night.
you're right, the story doesn't end there because after a campaign rally last night, m. sj. lee asked trump if he thought george b. wubush was responsibl for the 9/11 attacks. >> mr. trump, can you clarify, do you think that 9/11 was president bush's fault? you said on twitter that your comments about 9/11 -- >> so shockingly quiet trump there. he regularly takes questions from reporters. so it was kind of unusual a little weird to see him walk away without saying anything at all. but he wasn't done. a few minutes later, he took to twitter instead. his first tweet, at the debate, you said your brother kept us safe. i wanted to be nice and i did not mention the world trade center came down during his watch 9/11. then he tweeted, got a little
testier, said, no, jeb bush, you're pathetic for staying nothing happened during your brother's term when the world trade center was attacked and came down. you know, that last tweet had a kind of i know you are, but a real tit for tat back and forth here. also worth noting that bush said he had no idea what kind of leader trump would be because trump is always too busy talking about himself and not how he would leave the country. so another thing to remember here, this is a twitter feud that has been going on between trump and bush for months now. trump has hit bush on immigration, retweeted messages calls bush crazy, calling on him to stop speaking mexican. of course bush speaks spanish. so this is just the latest chapter in this long running feud and we'll see if there is another response today from skreb or if he's done. but trump really picked a sweet spot there on picking on george w. bush who jeb has always been pretty quick to defend. >> jeb and a lot of republicans
i suppose are defensive in that regard, too, when it comes to 9/11. so it will be interesting to see if there is any change here because of this one. we appreciate it as always. thank you. what many called a strong debate performance and just a few days before she scheduled to testify before congress, hillary clinton spoke with jake tapper in new hampshire on a number of topics, including benghazi. jake, good morning. >> that's right. i'm here this beautiful keane, new hampshire where hillary clinton has pulled ahead of bernie sanders. we talked about everything from her marriage to bill, they just celebrated their 40th anniversary, to her republican rivals. you're scheduled to testify before the benghazi committee. what are you expecting and how are you preparing? >> i really don't know what to expect. i think it's pretty clear that
whatever they might have thought they were doing, they ended up becoming a partisan arm of the republican national committee with an overwhelming focus on trying to as they admitted drive down my poll numbers. i've already testified about benghazi. i testified to the best of my ability before the senate and the house. i don't know that i have very much to add. this is after all the eighth investigation. other committees of the congress tapping committees with very experienced members of staff have all looked into this. bafb basically rejected the c conspiracy theories still floating out there. so i don't know. i will do my best to answer their question, but i don't know what their objective is. >> there is lots more to our
conversation. you can watch it all this sunday on state of the union at 9:00 a.m. and noon eastern. and former nba star lamar odom appears to have a change in his condition this morning. we'll be talking about that. and how far the law goes in allowing his estranged wife khloe kardashian to make his financial and medical decisions now that it seems his medical condition is changing. >> a lot of questions there. and also we have compelling new details in the oregon college massacre. for the first timing we're hearing from the arm veteran being called a hero. he's telling the story of what happened that day, how he saved others. also ahead, firefighters are beginning to gain the upper hand on a massive wildfire in texas. hold the phone.

we have new details about that horrific campus attack in oregon earlier this month that left nine people dead. chris mintz is the american veteran shot several times and now giving his firsthand account of what happened that day including the moment he came face-to-face with the shooter. nick valencia is here now with the new details. >> good morning. you mentioned that he is a u.s. army veteran and it may have been those instincts and that training that was the difference between life and death for chris mintz. thousand for t for the first time we're hearing in his own words what happened that day. >> dispatch as many ambulances as poll. we have upwards of 20 victims. >> reporter: chilling new details in the oregon community college massacre from shooting survivor chris mintz, the army
veteran who has been called a hero for protecting others. >> he's in the classroom. >> reporter: in a facebook posting, mintz recalled the day that he says started out as normal. but quickly descended in to chaos. he writes, there was a bunch of yelling and gun shots going off that sounded like firecrackers. mintz who says he sat in the front of the class says everyone got up and took off. i stopped and held the door open and waited for everyone to leave safely, he writes. he then says he took direction from a counselor that kept screaming someone needed to tell the people in the library and i told her i'd do it. mintz writes that he made his way back into the classroom area where he came face-to-face with the gunman. he leaned out and started shooting as i turned toward himd. this is how he vibed t describe the shooter. he was like he was playing a video game and showed no
emotion. mintz says the shots knocked me to the ground. he says he was shot again while on the ground and the gunman said that's what you get for calling the cops. mintz writes that he told the gunman that they didn't call police and they were already on the way. he then yelled to the gunman, it's my kid's birthday, man. mintz says the shooter pointed the gun right at my face and then retreated back into the classroom. >> hello, everyone. doing well -- >> reporter: a friend posted this video in the hospital. he's since been released and has this lingering question. i'm still confused at why he didn't shoot me again. he said he decided to make that post on facebook because he didn't want to to any on camera interviews. he said this is not about publicity on to apologize if
it gave anyone any painful memories. he's lucky to be alive. >> nick valencia, thank you so much. new this morning- -- >> oh, my god. oh, [ bleep ]. >> can you imagine being there? flash flood rescue, dramatic video here out of bakersfield, california. a woman narrowly pulled from rushing waters there after torrential rains triggered major mudslides. and enforced this couple to abandon their car. another round of rain is making its way to california and the west we should point out. but take a look here, thursday mud slides trapped hundreds of vehicles and drivers on highways including interstate 5. the mud was as high as 20 feet in some places. for those who were caught in it, obviously it was terrifying experience. overnight, i don't know if
you've heard with about, there has been a change in lamar odom's condition. >> his kidneys were all right. he's off dialysis and he's awake now. >> more on how he's doing and what legal rights his estranged rights clokhloe kardashian has his estate. and new details in the fatal beating of a 19-year-old inside the church where he worshiped in upstate new york. his parents were in court charged with first degree manslaughter and cnn was there. when your cold makes you wish... ...you could stay... ...in bed all day... ...you need the power of... new theraflu expressmax. new theraflu expressmax. the power to feel better.

declared a state of disaster in a county near austin after a wildfire burned more than 4,000 acres. the fire just 25% contained at this point has destroyed 38 homes already, forced the evacuation of 400 more. the area was the site of another wildfire four years ago and that destroyed nearly 1700 homes and killed two people. a new york teen who died in a church wanted to leave the congregation according to wlis who say leonard lucas' wish led to a counseling session on his spiritual state. he was beaten during the session which is witness said ended 14 hours later when people thought with with first degree manslaughter. el chapo guzman was injured while evading authorities. this is according to officials who say they launched an operation to recapture guzman
based on intelligence they received. he got away, but not before sustaining injuries to his face and to one leg. guzman proper out broke out in s been on the run. u.s. airlir wirway oig is a of the past after a merger with american airlines. flight 1939, maimed for their fonding year, departed from philadelphia and made several connections about before finally landing in san francisco. some encouraging news this morning for two time nba champion lamar owe did dom. his former college coach says odom woke up yesterday afternoon. remember he's in a vegas hospital right now. a source says odom was even able to say hello to his estranged wife. the divorce has not been finalized. with whatkhloe can
make medical decisions for odom. joey jackson is here with us. is f. o if odom is awake, what does that mean? >> thank goodness he's awake and we don't know what that means really. because what it comes down to is whether or not he has capacity, that is if he has the ability to make his own decisions, then he will make his own decisions. doctors will be guided by his judgments in the event that he's awake but not really responsive or not competent or not really able to make any type of decisions. and of course khloe will to the extent that she still technically is married to him. and the way the law works is in the event of course that your spouse is in a position to make decisions for you when you're incapacitated, the spouse would do exactly that. >> okay. a lot of people, too, are looking at this brothel because we know that workers there claim that lamar was using cocaine.
cocaine of course illegal. the brothel is not. but do you see anything in the big picture here that would implicate the brothel of any sort of liability in this case? >> there certainly could be. in two respects. one liability of course, we're talking about whether or not they were negligent in any way. and of course while we're all responsible for our own independent conduct, i get that, certainly in the event that you know that someone is engaging in some use, in the event that that could go poorly or badly to what extent should you interview. in addition if you know that someone is maybe, you know, counterindicating drugs, that is if they're taking her balanbal supplements with something else, do you have a duty to intervene. so all that will be looked at and if there is any liability, certainly that liability will fall upon the brothel that he was in. and of course if there were any laws broken from a criminal perspective, not suggesting to
this point that we know, but certainly if there were, investigators will without question seek to hold that bl h brothel accountable. >> joey jackson, always appreciate your insight. new rules for the upcoming gop debate. details on how some of the candidates could find themselves on the sidelines for this one. and hungary takes a stance. no more refugees, border crossings are now sealed off. >> we want to go to austria and germany. >> and now a growing list of other countries following suit. ♪ every insurance policy has a number. but not every insurance company understands the life behind it. for those who've served and the families who've supported them,

oh, my god, this car is going to hit us. >> after this rain, all the water came out of nowhere and it came up quickly. terrifying scene in southern california. the northbound lanes of i-5 now have reopened after flash floods sparked mudslides in the area. drivers there trapped in cars. some for hours and hours starting on thursday as hail found pounded the region and a boulder slid into the road. cleanup crews used street sweeper, but the southbound lanes are still closed. unclear how many people are still stuck on the highways if any. we'll have much more on this story throughout the morning. also this morning, hungary has closed its border with croatia so that only legal entry now into the country is being restricted to official bore can
d border crossings. this comes in response to the thousands crossing over its borders. tensions escalating this morning in the mideast. three more palestinians have been shot and killed and israeli officials say mpalestinians hav the taathe attacks and jewish s. donald trump claiming victory over cnbc. he says he's the reason the debate will be capped at two hours. >> we actually called ben carson and myself and said listen, you can have it three hours, we won't participate. i want to have a good show, i want to be good. items not about me. and i'm speaking about everything, but they have no power because they have no polling. i'm representing the politicians. can you believe it? and we won.
>> one thing he doesn't have to worry about, his spot on that debate stage. a new cnn poll of likely republican voters have him in the top spot 36% doubling carson there. trump will be joined on stage by his fellow candidates who get at least 3% support in nationally recognized polls. anything less and the candidates will be relegated to their version of the happy hour debate. we're joined by ben ferguson and jeffrey lord. ben, i want to start with you. these new rules, you can have maybe six candidates there and everyone else in the afternoon. >> yeah, and i think that's probably not a bad idea if you're one of the guy that's in the top, you'll like that. it gives you more time to talk. and i think that's why you saw donald trump and ben carson say we don't need three hours. if it's five, six guys instead of ten plus, there is no reason
to have three hour debate. i also think it's a smart move from donald trump because the longer he's on stage, the bigger the chance of a screw up. and for somebody to attack and come after him, same with ben carson, if you're leading, you want to limit your risk. and two hours, that many people, that's enough time on stage. remember the last debate, he didn't speak at one point for over 30 minutes. so he realized i don't want that to be another talking point. i want two hours. i don't blame him. >> with what we heard from one of the officials for the republican party, i have the note here from sean spicer, spokesman for the rnc, all debates include back chapel conversations between the rnc, campaigns and networks. this was no different. however, it is quite different because this isn't a back chapel conversation. this happened quite publicly and as trump said, he won. >> yeah, you know, when he wrote
the deal, one thing he said as an element of the deal is use your leverage. well, he's ahead in the polls. ben carson is right behind him. and so we heard him here, he called ben carson, they got together. without the two of them, this debate would not be much of a debate. and it probably wouldn't be much of an audience for it. so he did use his leverage here and he is very skillful with it. two hours is plenty. i took a look at the very first presidential debate and i think it was an hour. so two hours is plenty in this day and age and donald trump is also a pretty good master of television. he knows his audience. >> you're a trump supporter. let me ask you about these comments he made about 9/11 and then president george w. bush. he said that -- he pointed out that it happened on his watch. jeb bush then tweeted out calling donald trump pathetic. is it fair game to mention and to discuss the george w. bush
was in the white house when 9/11 happened? >> sure. i don't really think there is anything remarkable about this. anything that happens on any president's watch gets debated for centuries. there are people still out there debating pearl harbor and franklin roosevelt. when the bay of pigs happened with president kennedy, he held a press conference shorts thely there after, it was a disaster and he said i'm the responsible officer of the government. that's just basically true. >> but the did difference, though, is this. the bay of pigs is something that we planned. 9/11 was something that terrorists planned. let's be real clear about that. to imply that george bush somehow is responsible for the terrorist attacks that started planning years before -- let me make this clear -- years before it ever happened. the planning and training happened even when bill clinton was this office. and to imply that that happened and somehow is the fault of george bush i think is one of the most shallow blows by donald trump so far. i think it's completely on you out of bounds.
and you know that, even that would have been in office on that day, 9/11 would still have happened on that day. they had planned it for years. you can't imply george bush let us down. >> he was the sitting president. that's all we're saying here. >> that's not what donald trump is implying and you know that. let's be honest. >> i haven't seen any evidence that president bush knew this was coming and therefore was neglect neigen negligent. that somehow there was a memo in august and condi rice should have known and they were supposed to understand this, i mean it's just not so. so i think all he's saying here is he's president of the united states, he's the sitting president, you're responsible for what happens on your watch. that's just a fact. >> let me ask you this. why then walk away from m.j. lee when she asked him to clarify twice? he heard the question. he made eye contact. and then he walked away. >> probably just wanted to leave
well enough alone. one of the things he keeps saying he feels he's misinterpreted a lot by the press. he said this to me over a year ago. so i think at this point in the campaign, he decides, you know, if he said something and he just -- leave it alone and keep going. >> we have to wrap it there. jeffrey, ben, thank you both. the u.s. and russia reach an agreement on clashes in the skies over syria. problem solved or still a long way to go before the conflict really is resolved? we have an expert in the region who has thoughts on this. also new details about a bizarre case in upstate new york. a teenager beaten to death at church. and what role his parents allegedly played. a live report for you coming up. first, though, a family

possible breakthrough for the u.s. and russia in syria. a russian general says a deal to avoid air clashes between the two countries should be signed soon. the news comes just a couple of days after a russian warplane on a bombing raid in that region came within miles of the u.s. military jet. director of the mideast and north africa program with the european council on for relations is with us. daniel, thank you so much. does will agreement pave the way do you think for more substantive conversations, maybe expanding conversation about syria or other things with russia and the u.s.? >> i think there is a u.s./russia conversation constantly ongoing despite what has happened over ukraine, despite the fact that the personal relationship between the two leaders is clearly not a good one. there have been intermittent phone calls. secretary kerry and his counter
part lavrov have continued to meet. on iran, you had russia as an integral part of the negotiating team sitting opposite of iran and president obama when a very effective iran deal was reached made the point that america and russia managed to work constructively. so esyria, of course, they are taking opposite sides in many respects on the syria conflict. i think at the moment we are still looking at arrangements being made for what is called -- in other words, to make sure that we're both operating within air space, russian and american aircraft and the coalition on the american side that there won't be accidental clashes. beyond that, the question of course is can america and russia
now have a serious and results-oriented political dialogue on syria. we're not there yet is my assessment. i think both sides are kind of looking at that option and asking, you know, is there a real possibility for some political progress, about bbut not there yet. >> what about russia's motives in syria. a lot of people are skeptical. is this about as it has been suggested by some expanding the russian empire, do they want territory here? >> well, i think it's hard to make a credible claim that contemporary russia is really an imperial power. certainly seeing who has happened in ukraine, certainly the russia leadership thinks in terms of spheres of influence.
but i do not think that is unique to russia. i think russia looks at the ability to have a foothold in the middle east in terms of its interests, in terms of what that might give it in negotiating power with different states in terms of what that might do for possible energy routes and exports to european and other markets. but when you think about qwhat are russia's motivations, things are often complex. so i think there is probably more motivation in play when it comes to russia's position in syria, when it comes to america's position in syria. and i think the starting point should not necessarily be where do we go with with the motivation question, but what can we actually do. where do american and russia interests converge. and they do converge. neither side wants isis and other extremists violent groups to be successful.
neither side want the syrian state to collapse further. both sides probably want to see a deescalation i fighting and that might give you a starting point for elaborating a political platform that at some stage can deescalate this crisis. >> all right. very good points. daniel, we so appreciate you being with us. thank you. beaten to death at church. that's what witnesses say happened to a teenager in upstate new york. his open parents are now charged in this crime. we'll tell you what we've learned overnight about this disturbing case. does your makeup remover every kiss-proof,ff? cry-proof, stay-proof look? neutrogena® makeup remover does. it erases 99% of your most stubborn makeup with one towelette. need any more proof than that? neutrogena. when heartburn comes creeping up on you. fight back with relief so smooth and fast. tums smoothies starts dissolving the instant it touches your tongue. and neutralizes stomach acid at the source. tum-tum-tum-tum-tums

new details in the fatal beating of a 19-year-old inside the church where his family worships in upstate new york. >> and the boy's parents are now charged with manslaughter. authorities say the beatings were part of a counseling session. cnn's jason carroll has the lat he is. >> reporter: the case surrounding what happened inside this church behind me now will be heading to the grand jury. police call it a savage beating although the motive for the beating still somewhat unclear. bruce and debra leonard did that testify during the hearing today. instead, they sat and listened to damaging testimony about what alledgedly happened in that church counseling session. in the end, their 19-year-old son lucas was dead. their 17-year-old son christopher left in serious
condition. daniel irwin, a deacon at the word of life christian church, told the court he saw bruce leonard strike both of the boys inside the church's sanctuary. he said leonard hit his son lucas several times. i heard the sound of a strike. stop. then it started again. irwin also told the court he saw lucas was bleeding from his leg, moaning and rolling back and forth on the floor. irwin also saw leonard strike his uniyounger son five or six times with something that looked like a belt. he recalled the beating went on for 14 hours starting around 8:00 sunday night and lasting until 10:00 a.m. the next morning. when asked why the beating finally stopped, irwin said because luke was dead at that point. he said several church members including leonard's own brother christopher and his father tried performing cpr but it was too late. >> would you like to elaborate a little bit more about what
happened? >> i have no comment. >> reporter: outside court, irwin would not comment about his testimony. nothing about the motive for the beating. nor about allegations that the counseling session was ordered because leonard wanted to leave the church. the leonards are facing manslaughter charges ghdeath of their son. four others for assault charges. bruce leonard allegedly told investigators his sons may have molested children who belong to the church. but police say there is no indication of that whatsoever. they say seven children here from the church were taken into protective custody. they were interviewed, examined, and police say there is no indication any of them were sexually assaulted. >> the deceased and his brother are victims in this horrible crime and i want to put out there again there is no evidence that these brothers did anything. they are at this point true
victims. >> reporter: debra leonard's attorney says debra did not have the physical strength to beat her sons. she claims she only took part in the beginning but that other church members held the broothes down while the beating took place. >> i will continue to indicate that we are looking at other charges and if other people should be charged, we will present that evidence to a grand jury. >> reporter: the d.a. now has 45 days from now to present its case to the grand jury. and as you heard there by the time the d.a. does that, expect more charges, more possible arrests. >> good heavens. we'll keep you updated of course. meanwhile, johnny football in a little bit of trouble with the law this morning. can johnny manziel repair his reputation to retain his spot in the nfl or will the heisman trophy winner prove to be too much of a liability for the browns. and find out which country
