7:02 am
but we're going to start here with buckingham palace. just two days after arresting a guy who scaled a fence to the queen's home. news this morning armed officers may have mistaken prince andrew the queen's own son -- for an intruder. abc's nick schifrin is at buckingham palace this morning with the story. nick, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. you're absolutely right. two security incidents in one week, inside the queen's own home. clearly, the queen's guards with jumpy. it was reportedly a tense standoff in the buckingham palace gardens, armed police confront manned they thought was an intruder. they shouted at the man to put his hands up. that's when the british tabloid said he was the queen's own son. prince andrew, the former husband of sarah ferguson. the metropolitan police tell abc news that no arms were drawn. no force was used. and the man was cleared after identifying himself. it shows the police are tense. >> this time of the year, tens of thousands of people coming into the palace to view it and exiting through the garden. and then suddenly, you see
7:03 am
somebody is in an area where the public shouldn't be. then yes, you are going to confront that person. >> reporter: the confrontation happened on wednesday, just two days after a real-life intruder broke into the queen's home. police are investigating how the man climbed 12-foot walls and entered the state rooms. the same area where the queen hosted a state dinner for president obama. the intruder was arrested along with an accomplice waiting outside. they won't link the incidents, but the former chief of royal protection says the palace will take them both seriously and review the security. >> her majesty's famous words are get it right, put it right, and there will be a review, of that you can be certain of. and hopefully, it will be put right. >> reporter: and this morning, police are conducting that review. they're look at all aspects of buckingham palace security. and this morning, one tabloid reporting that two guards that stopped andrew are embarrassed and andrew, himself, more than a little unhappy. >> one can imagine. the royal guards on edge. all right, nick, our thanks to you. we're going to turn now to the white house selling its case
7:04 am
to attack syria. new reports of the obama administration showing some senators horrifying images of the chemical weapons attack they believe was carried about by the assad government. president obama stepping up his intense campaign to persuade the american people that military action is the only solution. abc's jeff zeleny has the story from the white house. good morning, jeff. these are some of the most gruesome and disturbing videos we have seen come out of this syrian crisis yet. >> reporter: good morning. you're right, they are gruesome and they're graphic. but these images are part of a central case that president obama is trying to make to overcome a growing tide of public opinion as he tries to make the case for why military strikes against syria are necessary. >> obama, hands off syria. >> reporter: as anti-war protesters rallied outside the white house and across the country -- >> all: no war on syria! >> reporter: -- the president is calling lawmakers. the vice president is preparing to host skeptical republicans for sunday night dinner, and
7:05 am
secretary of state john kerry is pressing hard with war-weary european allies. >> this is not the time to be silent spectators to slaughter. >> reporter: a full-court press from an obama administration in crisis. and overnight, abc news obtained what is now at the heart of the administration's case to congress -- a series of 13 videos senators viewed in a classified briefing last week. with images far too gruesome to watch in full. the disturbing pictures of syrian civilians, many are children. they are the same heartbreaking images that prompted this response from senator dianne feinstein when asked why so many americans oppose military action. >> they don't know what i know. they haven't heard what i heard. >> reporter: the administration now hoping those images have the same effect on the american people. still, it's a tough sell for president obama. the toughest of his presidency. he will sit down with network
7:06 am
news anchors for interviews on monday. followed by an address to the american people on tuesday. now the white house is getting some help making its argument. retired army general david petraeus, the former cia director, is now calling for strong action against the syrian regime. the white house hopes that helps win over some republicans. as the vote comes as early as wednesday, our survey of lawmakers over the weekend shows that the white house still needs at least a dozen more senators on their side. and in the house, the skepticism is even deeper. so a lot of work ahead for the white house. >> a tense weekend kicking off a tense week for the president. all right, jeff, our thanks to you. tune in for diane sawyer's interview on "world news" ahead of his address to the nation on tuesday. let's bring in george stephanopoulos, host of "this week." george, as we sit here on this sunz morning, on the eve of the president's big push, and the address to the nation tuesday
7:07 am
night, how would you place the success of the odds? >> if the vote were today, he'd lose. he does have a decent chance of getting the votes in the senate starting this week to pass it through. and i think the white house hope is that then that will start to build momentum that will halt the erosion in the house and start to get those numbers back up, particularly among democrats. another key event could be, and you saw the french say they're waiting for this, the report from the u.n. inpekt spectors n weekend on the chemical weapons in syria. that could also provide more ammunition for the white house. if it were today, no question, he would lose. >> if he doesn't get the votes, will he still strike? it seems to be a lose-lose position to be in. >> it would be the first time it happened to a president, losing the vote on military force. it's all but impossible for the president to go forward in the face of no votes in the congress. listen to what he said friday night in russia. i did not put in resolution before congress as a political ploy or symbolism. he said he could not say that
7:08 am
this syrians' use of chemical weapons posed a threat to the united states. in the face of that, i don't see how he could go forward. is it possible, for example, that he gets a yes vote in the senate and then the house simply doesn't vote? maybe that's the way out, unclear. >> what are the stakes for his presidency and his ability to get things done the rest of the term if he fails? >> it's hard to believe a month ago this wasn't even contemplated. now it's become the most important vote of his presidency. if he loses, it damages america's credibility on the world stage and complicate everything else he's doing in the final 3 1/2 years of congress. >> and george is going to have much more on "this week" right here on abc. thanks again. and now let's get it over to ron claiborne, who has a look at the other top stories this morning. >> hi, there, dan and bianna. good morning. new details about the nsa's program of domestic spying on americans. according to "the washington
7:09 am
post" the obama administration won approval in 2011 from a special federal surveillance court to intercept phone calls and e-mails of u.s. citizens. the same court banned the searches in 2008. the ruling also allowed the nsa to retain intercepted information for six years from the previous five years. and the wildfire in yosemite national park, closer to being contained, but the price tag is skyrocketing. the rim fire is about 80% contained this morning. but they also put the toting cost so far at nearly $90 million and rising. crews have been battling that fire for four weeks now. it's burned nearly 400 square miles. and the international olympic committee making a big announcement. the 2020 summer olympic games will will be held in tokyo. this is the second time they will host. they hosted in the 1964. they beat out istanbul and madrid. and an amazing story of survival this morning. two scientists and their helicopter pilot recovering after being rescued from a

7:12 am
sports journalism puts his foot and pen down, saying he will not be using the name redskins in his writing. peter king saying in his latest weekly column, quotes, i have been increasingly bothered by using the word. i don't want to be a part of using a name that a cross section of our society feels is insulting. king isn't the only one. another reporter called them the washington, d.c.s in his most recent article. >> the drum beat is getting louder and louder. and when you have someone like peter king on board, that is a huge statement about what a big deal this is and about what a big deal this is going to become. >> reporter: and it's not just the redskins. many consider these team names just as offensivoffensive. the atlanta braves, cleveland indians, and the kansas city chiefs. and the chicago blackhawks. clive takes issue with the fan
7:13 am
culture those names create. >> screaming in the stands and making war whoops. waving tomahawks up and down. people don't understand that. it has a tremendous psychological effect. >> reporter: abc news reached out to the washington redskins overnight. the team says it has no comment about its name and the controversy surrounding it. team owner dan snyder vowed not to change the name. roger goodell supports the position saying the team name is unifying. it's the unifying force for the fan base signifying strength, courage, pride, and respect. >> that's a tough and emotional issue. >> it is. >> not going away. >> lindsey, great story. thank you very much. great to have you on the show. >> football's back as well. >> yes. time to check the forecast. over to ginger. >> i have football in the forecast. but first we have to check in on alpine, utah. they had three-quarters of an inch of rain in just 15 minutes. very fast. flash flooding you can see, a problem. that's the fourth time that same
7:14 am
area has been hit. they had a burn scar from last year. the football i was promising, byu had texas at home. look what happened, just torrential rain. they had to delay it, but eventually byu goes on to win in on upset. thanks, jamie, because i would have no idea about football information. he gave me that. over texas. great for them. more rain for them, not great. between tucson and flagstaff, 1 to 2-inch rain. and that's just the southern end of it. some very heavy rain happening right along the canadian border. north dakota to northern minnesota have to be on alert. i want to also show you the severe weather possibilities today. aberdeen, bismarck, sheridan, turn on your local abc stations and get an idea what is happening. and just be aware of that. heat under that, north platte, almost 100, dallas 98 today. and it's going to get cool. really cool. there are frost advisories in five states in new england,

7:17 am
of the fun. walking into a tattoo parlor to get inked or pierced -- >> you say you're ready, i'm going to pierce you, okay? >> reporter: -- is often an impulsive decision. woody woodpecker with a gun. i'm going to say this was an impulse one. >> yeah. this one is an old one. >> reporter: the result of being in the mood. >> my last name is yule, which is owl in german. my sister and i are getting matching tattoos. >> reporter: but this morning, some local regulates for the nation's capital are trying to put a stop to impulsive inking by proposing a 24-hour waiting period for tattoos and piercings. the department of health says it's a public safety issue. >> it's a business buster. >> reporter: but the people we're talking to are worried that a waiting period would hurt their bottom line. >> one of the cornerstones of the body art industry has been

the walk-in service. by eliminating that, you're essentially killing the business. >> reporter: the proposal, getting under the skin of customers as well. >> somebody wants to come in as a walk-in. they're going to pay for the service, that's on them. if they regret that decision down the road, again, that's on them. it shouldn't be up to the shops to regulate people's poor decisions. >> reporter: parents disagree, arguing that the provision is in the best interests of their children. >> this wait and hold time will do wonders for their ability to protect themselves if they're not sure if they want to do it, and a parent's ability to protect them. to say, let's register, and give ourselves 24 hours to really talk about it. >> reporter: the public has 30 days to comment on the proposal before it could potentially become a final regulation. leaving ink and piercing enthusiasts to wait on pins and needles. abc news reached out to city officials for comment. no word yet on how they intend to sell this plan to think before you ink to a skeptical public. bianna and dan. >> i mean, i understand.
7:19 am
but is this a national epidemic? out of all issues to cover, why -- why this? >> you're right. >> talk to ginger, she was the one who -- >> ha, ha, very, very jestfully. i wish i had the guts to get one. i don't. >> the permanent factor throws me off. >> took me a long time to pierce my ears. >> fear commitment. fear commitment. moving on now. speaking of someone without a fear of commitment. >> that was a good segue. to the geeky groom with a great idea. he created camera eyeglasses to capture his own wedding day from his own unique point of view. >> how did he do it and what did the bride think? sara haines is here with the story. the newest addition to our "gma" team. >> yes, the bride-to-be seemed like the easygoing type, letting the husband-to-be conduct the
7:20 am
video experiment on the big day. but they never expected the trip down the aisle to get so much attention. a wink from the best man and a whisper at the altar. both intended for only the groom to see. unless the groom happens to be michael kammes. >> i decided to shoot our wedding from my perspective. >> reporter: an entertainment technology consultant and self-proclaimed -- >> geek. >> reporter: he clipped a tiny hidden camera to his glasses, that let him film the wedding from his point of view without noticing. >> i didn't want the family to think i was insane. >> okay, seemed really excited, so sure. i let him run with it. >> reporter: and he did. he ran with it all the way down the aisle, through the first kiss, and even on to the dance floor. >> so many people are focused on, you know, the bride, that this gives yet another angle. because it is all about focused on the bride. >> reporter: all that attention would make any bride blush. but kate thought it was a private keepsake. >> i thought my mom would watch it about 50 to 100 times and no one else would see it. >> reporter: until it went
7:21 am
viral. the groom's-eye view now has 225,000 hits on youtube and counting. >> you may kiss the bride. >> reporter: but even with all of america watching their most intimate moments, the kammes clearly only have eyes for each other. very sweet. it turned out to be great idea. we'll have to see if it catches on like the proposal videos. funny enough, i've always wanted to look at the groom. when someone comes down the aisle, i always go straight to the groom. it's so sweet, like, you can see them catch their breath. >> hopefully. >> ron is proposing a followup video on the honey moon. >> of course he is. and dan is seconding that. >> a ron's eye view of ginger. >> it is funny. >> all right, all right. >> thank you, sara. >> high-tech claiborne. coming up, we're going to take you to michigan for a very
