tv Early Today NBC January 13, 2016 4:00am-4:31am PST
it is wednesday january 13th, coming up on "early today." breaking news overnight. ten u.s. sailors detained by iranian authorities have been released. new details ahead. president obama cautions the nation, hits republicans hard while sending an optimistic message as he heads into the final year. >> that is what makes me so hopeful about our future. i believe in change because i believe in you. the american people. and that is why i stand here as confident as i have ever been. that the state of our union is strong. the nfl votes to relocate the st. louis rams back to
languag los angeles. and el chapo is moved around maximum security prison so he can't be tracked. and today is the day. the world's largest jackpot ever. powerball is hours away. "early today" starts right now. good morning everyone. i'm sheba wassal trussell tab. >> iranian state tv showed these images which appeared to be the sailors, nine men and one woman being held prior to their release. their two small boats, similar to these were headed to bahrain. one developed mechanical issues and the other rendered aid. they drifted off course into the persian gulf near the farsi islands.
>> reporter: the revolutionary guard issued a statement today saying they had released all ten american sailors. initially the revolutionary guard said they had apprehended the two vessels and the ten sailors because they were snooping around in waters and acting suspiciously. but the latest statement, an admiral from the revolutionary guard gave said after an extensive investigation they realized the u.s. vessel's navigation system had failed and they accidentally drifted into the iranian waters and their activities were not suspicious and didn't amount to any sort of espionage. he said the vessels were esco escorted out of iranian territorial waters into the international waters. the incident could have been a lot worse but i think president rouhani's administration was keen to wrap this up quickly in order tot to effect the deal.
this could have escalated and japanese e jeopardized the nuclear deal. iran has been able to avoid that and american sailors are on their way home. but they are not on their way home without a warning from iran's army chief. he said let this be a warning to troublemakers in congress who want to impose more sanctions on iran, back to you. we the people have a loot to consider this morning following president obama's final state of the union address. the focus was on major issues facing our future and in a less obvious way the 2016 election. >> let me start with the economy. and a basic fact. the united states of america right now has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. >> last year, vice president
biden said that with the new moon shot america can cure cancer. >> tonight i'm announcing a new national effort to get it done and because he's gone to the mat for so many of us i'm putting joe in charge of mission control. [ applause ] for the loved ones we've all lost. for the families that we can still save. let's make america the country that cures cancer once and for all. what do you say joe? >> all the talk of america's economic decline is political hot air. well so is all the rhetoric you hear about americas enemies getting stronger and the world getting weaker. >> our answer needs to be more than tough talk. more than calls to carpet bomb civilians. that may work as the tv sound bite but it doesn't pass muster on the world stage.
>> i will keep working to shut down the prison at gantt moe. it is when a mosque is vandalized or a kid is called names. that doesn't make us safer. that's not telling it like it is. it is just wrong. it is one of the few regrets of my presidency. that the ranker and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better. >> i believe in change because i believe in you. the american people. and that's why i stand here as
confident as i have ever been that the state of our union is strong. thank you. god bless you. god bless the united states of america. >> shortly after south carolina governor nikki haley delivered the republican response. >> as he enters his final year in office, many americans are still feeling the squeeze of an economy too weak to raise income levels. we're feeling a crushing national debt, a healthcare plan that has made insurance less affordable and doctors less available. and chaotic unrest in many of our cities. even worse, we are facing the most dangerous terrorist threat our nation h seen since september 11th. and this president appears unwilling or unable to deal with it. >> today the president travels to two red states, nebraska and louisiana to sell his message. and the republican republican
presidential candidates will have their say at the next gop debate which is tomorrow night. the jackpot for tonight's powerball has reached $1.5 billion and lottery officials expect sales to surge as the 1 p.m. eastern drawing gets closer. and even though the odds are in 1 in 292 million, how can you not play with a prize that size? jay, did you buy your first ticket? i understand you have a system to this thing here. >> i bought a ticket earlier. and i'll buy some more later. the system is to pick the right numbers. it hasn't worked out to this point. like me, tens of thousands across the country will be in markets like this one and get coffee a soft drink a snack, and also maybe a shot at more than a billion dollars. there has never been this much
power in powerball. >> this is $1.5 billion. >> the largest jackpot ever. >> this is historical. this is something you can't wrap your brain around. >> but lines do wrap around gas stations, markets and shops across the country right now. >> crazy, everybody wanting that winning ticket. >> some even crossing the border in the six states that don't play. >> we had a phone call someone was going to be bringing up three charter buses full of people to buy lottery tickets. >> and plans to do what to do with the winnings? >> open up another business. >> or as plentiful as the number of people scrambling to get a ticket. >> i have several kids. college number one. >> buy my whole family houses. >> you could buy a nfl team. the fantasies what you could do with it. >> fueled by whatever it might take to win. >> i click my heels together
three times. >> i've been having dreams about stuff like this. really. >> dreams, shared by million, hoping they have the six numbers that will make them all come true. >> all right. so let's talk a little bit more about those odds. 1 in more than 292 million. you have a better chance of being struck by lightning or crushed by an asteroid. i've never heard of that happening frankly. you have a better shot of being a movie star, being elected president of the united states. so getting the winning number is tough. what i'm telling you sheba is we still got a chance, right? >> we do. and with that asteroid finding that little factoid there now jay, please go in the truck. hide. >> i'm on the way. joaquin el chapo guzman is being held in isolation today.
