. good morning, breaking news overnight. torrential rain triggers deadly flooding in colorado. one dam has broken. at least three others in danger right now. a major university closed. we're there live. we are not exceptional. that's the message from vladimir putin directly to the american people in a bold editorial in today's "new york times." as secretary of state john kerry arrives in switzerland over a key shut down. prince william makes a big announcement about his plans for the future. we'll tell you what he's giving up and why, thursday, september
7:01 am
12th, 2013. >> announcer: this is today with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rock fellow plaza. it's 7:00 a.m. on the west coast on a thursday i'm savannah guthrie. >> i'm matt lauer with al roker. let's get to that breaking news. dangerous and deadly flooding in parts of colorado. sad news at least two people have been killed and a number of homes destroyed. vida from our affiliate kusa is live in boulder. good morning. first of all, give us a sense of where you are and what the risk is at the moment. >> yeah. we are in the north portion of boulder right now. we're along a major intersection. it is broadway and iris. this is north of the university of colorado. i want to give you a live look of what we are dealing with.
7:02 am
what we're dealing with here all night. we arrived here at this location around 1:00 this morning. and you can see over there, that is a pathway. that's not a creek. we have had continuous flooding coming down that pathway overnight. it is going down a major intersection one way, broadway one way and going down iris the other way. it is right next to homes. it's flooding homes and flooding basements and i can tell you, this is just a snapshot of what we're dealing here in northern colorado in boulder county, as well. just north of here, we were dealing with another neighborhood earlier this morning. lots of neighborhoods under evacuation out here in boulder county. >> vida, we spoke to someone with the sheriff's department earlier when we came on the air on the east coast and talking about these dams and one he said had broken already and three at risk. how many people, can you give me a sense of how many people are in the path of this water? >> well, wewere heading up to that area earlier today. just north of here.
7:03 am
we were taking u.s. 36 up that way. it was really hard to navigate through there. we were in an open area of u.s. 36 right by that area and when we got word that all of a sudden there was a wall of about 15 feet high of water rushing down left-hand canyon. now, we were south of that area. that area that was being evacuated. hundreds of people being evacuated there. when we were told that we needed to get out of the path. we were headed to a sfotory ande ended up having to evacuate. >> kusa out in colorado. thank you for the update. we appreciate it. >> sounds like a rough few days for folks there. >> it really is, unfortunately. as we look and show you what's going on. we are looking at five to eight inches of rain. meadow lake dam, that's the dam that has broken. five to eight inches in the boulder area and more coming down. this is a live radar and you can see up in that meadow lake dam
7:04 am
area, we have more heavy rain. rainfall falling at the rate of about 1 to 2 inches per hour. continue streaming. we have an upper level low that is just spinning the moisture into this area. so, we do have flash flood watches in effect stretching from idaho falls all the way down to el paso, texas. including flash flood warnings in parts of texas. look at that rainfall all throughout the southwest into the rockies and colorado. we're talking another three to five inches of rain in the next two days. so, there will be no relief for these folks suffering with all this flooding. >> not good news. al, thank you very much, appreciate it. new developments on the crisis in syria. john kerry kicking off talks with his russian counterparts. vladimir putin is out with an editorial aimed at the white house. andrea mitchell is in geneva, andrea, good morning to you.
7:05 am
>> good morning to you. well, vladimir putin seems to be trying to gain the pr advantage with that blast of the op-ed in the "new york times" blasting the u.s. and blaming the rebels, not the assad regime for the chemical attacks. as john kerry arrived in geneva this morning, officials traveling with him were dismissive of putin's guest column saying that is not what he and his foreign minister are telling them. putin claims every reason to believe that sarin gas was used by opposition forces. a u.s. strike would unleash a new wave of terrorism in the region. he also takes a swipe at president obama's speech saying it is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional. later today, kerry will meet with his russian counterpart to find out was putin's column just clever pr or are the russians really serious about eliminating assad's chemical weapons?
7:06 am
they're counting on putin having a lot at stake. >> i think putin has put prestige on the line. >> reporter: zigzagging from military threats to diplomacy weaken the bargaining. >> where putin right now all the cards on getting rid of those chemical weapons. >> reporter: even if a u.n. agreement is reached, can it work? the syrian chemical arsenal estimated to be more than 1,000 tons is scattered. this satellite photo shows a suspected depo. >> this is going to be a lengthy process given the volume of what everyone suspects that syria has. it will take years to eliminate these talks. >> one plus on the u.s. side today is word that the u.n. inspectors who got to the site of repairing to report next week that it was most likely the assad regime, not the rebels responsible for that attack. savannah? >> andrea mitchell in geneva, thank you very much.
7:07 am
leon panetta served as secretary of defense and cia director. he is with us now exclusively. secretary panetta, good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. >> have to ask you about this op-ed. foreign leader basically urging americans directly not to engage in military. what do you think of the tactic? >> i work with the russians in a number of capacity, particularly as cia director and as secretary of defense. and i think it's pretty clear that the whole purpose of that was to try to weaken our resolve and to try to make sure that we would not fulfill our pledge to conduct military action, if we have to. so, i think he was, he was trying to, in his own way, weaken the united states and the effort to negotiate these issues. >> it's a fascinating op-ed because on the one hand it presence what appears to be a reasonable argument and lectures americans on american law and gets in a few digs while at it. "it is alarming that internal conflicts in foreign countries
7:08 am
has become commonplace for the united states. millions around the world increasingly see america not as a model of democracy, but relying solely on brute force as relyi ." when you look at the situation right now, is putin outmaneuvering president obama. is he trying to play president obama? >> i think first and foremost. we have to understand that president putin should be the last person to lecture the united states about our human values and our human rights and what we stand for. we know what we stand for. we know what we're fighting for in the world and i think his effort to try to, you know, do this via column in "new york times" is just not going to work. we know who the russians are. >> let's talk about this larger deal that is potentially on the table. diplomacy instead of military intervention do you think it's for real or a stalling tactic? >> i think we have to be very careful and cautious in the way we approach this.
7:09 am
we have to pursue it. the president wants to pursue what secretary kerry is there trying to get some place. i don't think we ought to kid ourselves. the russians, frankly, have been playing for time along with the syrians. this could be a stalling tactic. i do believe that we have to set some time limits here that we just can't let this drag on. >> do you give a deadline for diplomacy? >> i don't think you set a guideline. we have to make clear this cannot just drag on. ultimately, we have to make progress here. this is complicated and not easy to do. but the last thing is to have this thing drag on for months and then have the united states' credibility harmed by all of us. >> you are the one when still serving in the administration who agreed with cia director petraeus and secretary of state clinton that arming the rebels at that time may have tipped the balance. did the president miss his moment by rejecting that advice? >> i understand why the president made that decision. he was worried about arms
7:10 am
getting into the wrong hands, but now he's made that decision and i'm glad he has. we have to back up the rebels and we have to do everything we can to ensure that we have some kind of peaceful transition, but, most importantly, we have to be credible in what the president's threat as commander in chief was all about. our national security interest demand. if we can't get them to cough up their chemical weapons, that we will conduct this limited attack. >> former defense secretary leon panetta, pleasure to have you here sir, thank you. we'll take a turn and get a check of the other top stories from natalie. >> good morning, savannah. good morning, everyone. a massive recall of dehumidifiers. recalling more than 2 million dehumidifiers sold under 12 different brand names. they can overheat and catch fire. there have been reports of 46 fires. consumers should stop using them. for more information head to our website.

7:12 am
confrontation involving zimmerman. at a news conference on wednesday, shellie zimmerman had little to say but let her attorney do most of the talking. >> people are wondering why shellie called 911 and said there was a firearm. you don't want to take a chance. >> and he said that shellie zimmerman wants her relationship with her relationship to end with a wimper and not with a bang. zimmerman will not be charged. and a great catch by a very long-time baseball fan. this one was a foul ball hit into the stands at the giants/rockies game. popped cleanly by virginia smith. you see her there in the stands. she brought her glove to every game. mother of 9, grandmother of 15 and they're signing her up to be a catcher of the team. >> heard more about that. in the next inning she got up and doubled to the gap. >> very impressive.

a comfortable day around the inner bay. 78 degrees right here in san jose. 74 in fremont, and 76 degrees on the way to oakland. now, it's going to be warm out in the east bay. but nothing like earlier this week. i'm talking 86 degrees in livermore by tomorrow a touch warmer, then level off this saturday. and that's your latest weather. matt? >> al, thanks very much. five years ago this that the investment bank lehman brothers filed for bankruptcy and trigger what would become the greatest financial crasis. unemployment would eventually reach 10%. henry paulson the man at the center of the storm reflects on the meltdown in the latest edition of "bloomberg business week" and in a new documentary "hank." secretary paulson, good to see you. good morning. >> matt, good to be here. >> so much has been written about the very dark days surrounding immediately proceeding september 15th, 2008
7:15 am
and the days after. when you went back to look back at them and talk about this for the magazine and the documentary, did it bring back the pit in the stomach that you must have felt at that time? >> boy, did it. it was, it was the night before we filmed the documentary my stomach tightened up and i had trouble sleeping all over again. >> it was a little bit, someone used the anology with me that as this was all unfolding like being on an airplane that was on fire. it was going down and you had to get out on the wing of the plane while it was going down and fix it. you did a lot of things that were unprecedented. you bailed out aig and tarp came about. $700 billion. when you look back now, secretary paulson, second thoughts about any of the decisions you made? >> the major decisions, i think, we got right. i have second thoughts about a lot of things. the biggest thing i have second thoughts about, i never was able to explain to the american people that every action we took
7:16 am
was for them to keep our economy functioning because if we hadn't had a functioning economy, the situation could have been quite worse. i wasn't able to make that. >> let's remember because you didn't make that case sometimes clearly, you got a lot of criticism. people said, this guy helped out the people on wall street at the expense of main street. >> right. >> one of the things you talk about for the first time is the impact that this actually had on your family. >> yeah, it was not just my family. i guess you're alluding to my brother. >> right. >> but people really all over the u.s. what i talk about a bit in the documentary was after lehman had gone down that week, there was a lot going on. and that we were dealing with multiple crises and it was lehman had gone down on a sunday night and it was friday morning when i came up for air after having met with congress and asked for the extraordinary powers.
7:17 am
and i remember i hadn't given my brother a call. he is a very good friend. my best friend. fixed income salesman, senior vice president in the office of lehman brothers and i called him and i was calling to explain that everything we possibly could, we didn't have the tools to save lehman. before i even got there he said to me, i know. his concern was about me. and i recognized that there were people all over the u.s. that were talking to loved ones. >> the same situation. people hated t.a.r.p. because they thought it bails out these banks that made horrible decisions and bails out these bankers who took home huge bonuses while they were making horrible decisions. you think it was absolutely necessary. >> oh, gosh, yes. >> have they learned their lesson? >> i would say this about t.a.r.p. let's not forget what t.a.r.p. put capital into hundreds of banks. >> but have those banks learned
7:18 am
their lesson? >> money came back plus $3,200. i think banks made mistakes. they come a long way. the banks are better capitalized, better regulated and have much, much better risk controls. but, the thing i say, which still isn't popular and i'm not defending the banks because they made decisions, but their root cause of every crisis is wise and fraud government policies. because no matter how the financial system is set up, no matter what the economic system is, as long as you have people you're going to have financial crises. so, the key thing is to make sure you have the tools you need and the political will to act with force to manage a crisis before it becomes too big. >> it's a fascinating look back and it made me nervous just reading about it. i can only imagine what it it did to you. secretary paulson, good to see you.
7:19 am
>> matt, good to be here. >> the bloomberg business week with the account of this from secretary paulson hits newsstands today. the doumentry comes out on netflix on monday. guys, over to you. >> matt, thank you. want to talk about the vatican. the pope has a new ride. not the popemobile and it's not new either. >> it's sweet. >> a 79-year-old priest gave this gift to the pope. a 1984 reand it's a manual. the pope knows how to drive a stick. >> the vatican says he'll drive it not outside the grounds but for short little rides around the campus. >> that's right. security isn't so happy about this idea. >> doesn't replace the popemobile that is a mercedes. >> there are snow tires in the boot. >> he left them there. coming up, a big announcement from prince william about his plans for the future.
