2:00 am
civil rights investigation into the police department. madagan's request to the department says the shocking death of laquan mcdonald is the latest tragedy in our city that highlights serious questions about the use of unlawful and exceptionive force by chicago police officers and the lack of accountability for such abuse. cnn's ed lavandara has more. ro activists here say the firing of the top cop is the beginning of the changes they want to see. a great deal of scrutiny swirling around garry mccarthy as well as mayor rahm emanuel, and why it took so long for officer jason van dyke to be charged with the murder of the shooting death of the teenager, laquan mcdonald the shooting that took place in october of last year. the actions of both met under a great deal of scrutiny. rahm emanuel says there has been too much focus on the superintendent of the police department here in chicago and because of that, it was time to make a change in the top
2:01 am
position there but many activists say rahm emanuel bears a great deal of responsibility with the way the mcdonald case has been handled. the nassau of mccarthy's firing came rather suddenly. he was on a radio station on tuesday morning saying he still believed that he had the backing of rahm emanuel and in a few hours later, that announcement was made. rahm emanuel says he is responsible for how this is handled. he has called for a task force to look at the way complaints against police officers are handseled. >> that is a task force that has a deadline of march of next year to come back with a final report. christine, allison. >> ed, thanks, for that. new plans to send additional u.s. revealing the pentagon is organizing what it is calling a specialized expeditionary force. carter saying the plan would
2:02 am
take advantage of american forces unique capability and quote long reach. >> reporter: it putting everybody on notice in syria, that you don't know at night who is going to be coming in the window. and that's the sensation we want all of isil's leadership and followers to have. >> the iraqi prime minister says there is no need for foreign groups on the ground in iraq. on his facebook page the prime minister writes the iraqi government stresses any deployment of foreign forces, special or not, in any place in iraq cannot happen without his approval and coordination and full respect of iraqi sovereignty. let's get the latest now from pentagon correspondent barbara starr. >> reporter: christine, allison, in the face of withers criticism, the administration making a renewed effort to show progress against isis in syria and iraq. defense secretary ash carter announcing a new effort for u.s.
2:03 am
special operations forces to be based if iraq and do raids and missions in iraq and even go into syria. very dangerous business. they want to build on the intelligence capability already there. have these troops go rescue hostages, gather intelligence, attack isis leadership. all of that. now, it's going to be a relatively small number of special operations forces, but they will be backed up in a significant manner. they will have their own helicopters, their own rescue force, if they run into trouble. so at the end of the day, this could put another 200 troops into the arena, even as an additional 50 special operations forces are scheduled to arrive in northern syria. it is a brush-up in the u.s. effort. officials are el theing us it could still be weeks before troops arrive. a lot of work to be done about what units will go and exactly how they will operate.
2:04 am
allison, christine. >> there is concern this morning about a new united nations report warning that isis has succeeded if building a substantial presence in libya. the eun report says isis has as many as 3 nouchlt,000 fighte,00 syria and iraq t. report likely to increase worries about isis' ability to export terror from its pace of operations in the coastal city of sirte a few hundred miles from the southern most islands of europe. for the latest, let's bring in cnn iian lee. this foothold that isis has gained in libya. >> reporter: that's right, allison, very disturbing. they have been able to kafb out this area roughly 100 miles along the coast that the leader of isis, abu bakr al baghdadi is
2:05 am
in control of this isis affiliate, sending 800 fighters to serve as a backbone to help train few recruits and this part of libya has become a beacon all over africa. they're coming. they're also getting local support from libyans as well. they have been able to push out, expand territory tens of hundreds of thousands of migrants going through libya to get to europe. >> that is something of great concern for european officials as the southern part of crete, southern part of greece is less than 200 miles from libya. they are practicing their extreme form of governor nance on this part of libya as well. they are expanding, threatening neighboring countries, tunisia and egypt as well. a lot of concern about this
2:06 am
latest report up to 3,000 fighters and growing. >> but when you think about it, it's not overnight isis gained its foothold in libya. many fighters have gone to syria, have gone to iraq and then, join the extremists, of course, have gone back to libya. why now this report? wouldn't it have been better to raise awareness and have this report come out a year ago? >>. >> well, we've seen the rise of isis in libya. it didn't start as you said overnight. they have been able to exploit the ongoing civil war there that kicked off following the 2011 overthrow of moammar gadhafi and there are two warning factions, previously, you have an islamist government in the western part. >> that ranges from moderate to extremist. you also have the internationally recognized government in the eastern parts of the country. they have been at odds fighting
2:07 am
each other. isis going if, exploiting it. but they will have some difficulty, some challenges that they don't have in iraq and syria. primarily funding. they do not have the revenue from oil that they do in iraq and syria, although, libya does have a lot of oil. they also can't exploit sectarian risks like in iraq and syria. then they do still have to confront those two other factions, also, al qaeda very much active in libya too, posing a challenge to them as well. so while we do have this expansion, they do have some limitations at this point. >> and that's serving as well two terror groups in competition. isis and al qaeda. cnn's ian lee, thanks so much. >> time for an early start on your money this morning, u.s. stock futures are up after a strong day yesterday. the dow climbed 168 points, very strong auto sales countering a weak manufacturing report. and today we will hear from the fed chief janet yellen.
2:08 am
>> that could change the direction of everything. facebook ceo mark zuckerberg celebrating the birth of his daughter by giving away 99% of his facebook shares, currently valued at 45 billion. they will go to charities focusing on community building and learning. his wife and he announced their plan tuesday in an open letter to their daughter. they wrote, we know this is a small continuedbution compared to the resources and talents to those working on these issues. we want to do what we can worng working alongside others. >> 30 is the new 70 in giving. donald trump leading in the polls, explaining why he thinks his supporters can carry him to victory next. 12k3w4r6r789s ok, we're here.

his supporters can carry him . donald trump stepping up his campaigning, standing by his apparently unfounded claim that thousands and thousands of muslims in new jersey cheered
2:13 am
the 9/11 attacks. trump rallied reporters in new hampshire. >> reporter: christine, allison, a much more subdued donald trump, he took questions a rarity in this town hall like setting. we are two months out from this 2016 campaign, a long campaign, quake i quickly moving into the next phase, but donald trump had a more serious tone, several voters told me, a much more subdued tone as he talked to this crowd. one thing i was struck by. he says his voters are the most loyal regardless of what he says, let's take a listen. >> one of the things that comes out in the poll is that i have the most loyalty. people say he can do anything. he can do anything, so i don't know if that's right. but they say i have the most loyal people. you know, others if you sneeze, they drop you. me, i can sneeze, i can say things that i think are right. do you know what's happening in new jersey? a lot of people say, yeah that,
2:14 am
did take place. i wasn't going to apologize. i wasn't going to apologize. a lot of things happen today where they were dancing and they were happy. there were a lot of happy people over in new jersey. and i saw it and a lot of people saw it and i'm getting hundreds of phone calls and a lot of other people are too and things are all of a sudden materializing. >> now, of course, donald trump is still doubling down on that comment from 9/11. he said that thousands of people were seen cheering on the new jersey side of the river as the towers fell. no video evidence of that has ever come forward. donald trump brought it up again at his rally on tuesday night. so that clearly is going to be an issue. i can tell you, the voters i talk to sigh they are not interested in that. they are much more interested in his economic proposals, his terrorism proposals, his position of strength. the point here is as he goes forward in this next two months of this campaign, will any other republican rivals be able to stop him? will they be able to slow him? at this point it is trump largely versus the rest of the
2:15 am
republican field. -se stepping up his campaigning. he has been in georgia, new hampshire, virginia, north carolina and iowa by weekend. he is tstepping up this campaig. he thinks he can clearly win this republican contest. allison. >> while you were sleeping a tweet from a donald adviser. this is what daniel scavino tweeted. nobody can deny donald trump uncovered a 14-year long 9/11 cover-up, re, celebrations on jersey city rooftops. >> he tweeted video of a "cbs news" cast right after 9/11 of a rooftop celebration. >> it shows the news report, a cbs news report of eight men detained by police for a rooftop celebration, eight men detained t. core of the fact checking of donald trump's claim is thousands and thousands of people were celebrating 9/11 in jersey. it was always that was an
2:16 am
exaggeration. >> what is interesting the timing of this, you think our allison camera that interviewed rudy guiliani, he said, look, trump prove it. i guess this is the sort of trickle of the trump plan proving that there were celebrations. look, rubio, okay, there were here and there a couple of people, eight people, ten people, who we were watching. but the thousands and thousands is simply an xanl racing. chris christie says this didn't happen. thousands and thousands of people, this didn't happen. now the donald trump adviser tweeting out overnight he has uncovered a coverup that all these people must be a part of a coverup of what donald trump thinks is the truth about thousands and thousands of people. this again, this is about eight people detained. >> trump also making news yesterday, saying he regrets actually not joining the military. i want you to listen to a little of what he said yesterday. >> i didn't say it, frankly i

2:18 am
maybe we should be a little less gender specific about this. >> i think everything that presidential candidates do is strategic and i think his little oops slip-up was strategic. that's a buzz word. gender equality. >> let's talk about the democrats, former first daughter chelsea clinton hopes to raise a fundraiser for her mom later this month. in new york, december 17th. the first clinton event with chelsea as a headliner. she's had a limited role in her mom's campaign. on the same day, she will feature her husband. all right on a night philadelphia said fare wale to hometown boy kobe bryant, the 6ers did something they haven't done since march, win, they won. andy scholes with the details in this morning's bleacher report coming up next. ocation with the, big idaho potato truck. our truck? it's touring across america telling people about idaho potatoes. farmer: let's go boy. again this year the big idaho potato truck is

2:34 am
small number of special operations forces, but they will be backed up in a significant manner. they will have their own helicopters, their own rescue forces, if they run into trouble. so at the end of the day, this could put another 200 troops into the arena, even as an additional 50 special operations forces are scheduled to arrive in northern syria. ness a plus up in the u.s. effort. but officials are telling us, it could still be weeks before the troops arrive. a lot of work to be done about what units will go and exactly how they will operate. allison, christine. >> thanks for that. there is concern this morning about a new united nations report. warning that isis has zooed succeeded in building a substantial presence in libya. the eun report says isis has as many as 3,000 fighters, describing it as the terror group's stalled caliphate outside syria and iraq. they have increased worries to

2:36 am
countries and they have been able to carry out attacks in those neighboring countries as well. as you do see migrants going into libya into the european union. there is concern the fighters could be hiding among them as well as libya from the crete in southern greece is less than 200 miles. there are some challenges for isis and libya, though. they do not have the sectarian issue to exploit and there are rival factions there as well that are helping to somewhat containment. right now in the west. you have an islamist government that ranges from moderate to extremis extremist. in the eevths have you the internationally recognized governments. both factions are somewhat contained. they are bolder. they are also fighting with al qaeda in the eastern part, northern eastern part in the city of durn avenue.

2:44 am
local affiliate, a three minute report about eight men detained on a rooftop for apparently celebrating after the wtsz came down. >> this is after donald trump saying there were thousands celebrating. also coming after our allison camerata interview, if this really happened, prove it. i think you are seeing the trickle of proof coming from the trump camp about celebrations, we're seeing dwags of eight people not thousands. >> the thousands and thousands the fact checkers has been fixateing on, governor guiliani, governor chris christie in new jersey, patterson police chief said there may have been isolated cases, we're not talking thousands and thousands of people. this is an exaggeration this claim is an exaggeration. >> donald trump is making news yesterday. i want you to listen to what he said. we'll talk on the back end. >> i didn't serve, i hadn't serve. frankly i had deferments because

2:46 am
beginning. let's talk about jeb bush here. also, known e i don't know if this is strategic, really a slip. listen to what he said yesterday. >> should i be elected president, i would have my vice president. i think she will be a great partner. i mean, did i say that out loud? we always talk about this with one gender in mind. i think we've reached the point i think in our country where maybe we should be a little less gender spec about this. >> now, he is still out there campaigning and he is planning and moving forward as if he will be the nominee. >> and making news with his so-called slip up of the buzz word, gender equality. something a lot of people in this country want to see. so i'm thinking that was strategic. he wants to get on the news just as much as donald trump is on the news. also former first daughter
