happy the president's asking capitol hill for their permission but is he asking for their permission? >> he's not asking for permission and he done have to, because this is not a declaration of war. even before the hearing the president's plan, the ma majority of americans polled by nbc news and "wall street journal" say they support military ax against isis because it's in the nation's best interest. first video of kerry arriving in baghdad trying to build support there among middle east partners and iraq as well. in the weeks since beheading of two american journalists, the pressure really has been on. today the nation will hear the president's plan one day after mr. obama met with leaders of congress yesterday where he laid out the proposed action which did not include a request for more funds or approval there he ought to be asking for our support, whether or not he may think he's authorized to do what he intends to to.
>> the constitution is clear, it's the job of congress not the president to declare war. >> that from republicans and democrats alike. the white house plan is expected to include training and advising of iraqi forces to fight isis on the ground in that country. also secretary of state kerry on the ground in baghdad toward that end with the end of building support among allies. the plan expected to include arming rebels in syria by isis fighters in that country. also the denver woman arrested at airport will face a judge after arrested trying to board a flight to syria. she wanted to join isis and help rebel forces there. >> so much at stake. interesting to see how the country will move forward. the "today" show offering continuing coverage of the story in a few minutes. the president planning on addressing the nation at 6:00. we'll air the speech live here. a judge scheduled to set a
trial data excused of killing sierra lamar. garcia-torres in jail since lamar disappeared two years aepg the body has not been found. damian trujillo live in front of the hall of justice this a look at a long awaited hearing. >> reporter: good morning. we've been here before, but the judge keeps pushing back the trial setting date. we should know when the trial should begin against garcia-torres. garcia-torres has denied any involvement in the disappearance of sierra lamar back in 2002. 2012, i should say. grand jury testimony showed sierra's dna found in the car, a hair belonging to sierra found on the rope in the trunk of garcia-torres' car and his dna found on her pen. prosecutors told the grand jury, sierra lamar was bound up, dragged, placed in garcia-torres' car, in the trunk. the judge will likely meet with
both sides in chambers before coming out for the official hearing. observers and the lamar family frustrated, wondering whether anyone will go to trial for sierra's murder in the homicide case, especially when they've witnessed day delay after delay. not to mention the uncertainty of the california death penalty. a judge ruled the death penalty unconstitutional. i've got a text from our legal analyst steven clark, 5:45, telling us not to forget about any possible change of venue motion because the grand jury transcripts released to the media, there's fear that the defense and prosecution will ask for a change of venue to perhaps another county in california because there might be a prejudicial jury in this case, since everybody should know details of this case with grand jury transcripts.
that could mean even more delays. live outside the hall of justice, damian trujillo, nbc bay area. >> good point. so many people familiar with this young lady whose body was never found. police in hayward looking for somebody who may have set two fires in 24 hours. the most recent one happened yesterday at a vacant building on industrial parkway. firefighters found a gas can set on fire at the front door of the building. they were able to put that out, the fire out, before it spread inside. a day earlier somebody threw a molotov cocktail into a vacant building a few doors down than only caught the carpets that caught fire, nothing else. >> 6:55. apple gaining a bit of ground on the stock market. >> scott, it's interesting. big news for apple yesterday, traditionally do they see a letdown on stock markets. >> almost immediately a bit of a pop, by the end of the day on every apple announcement you
