position as a candidate. >> mr. trump insisted his support is not open ended. major garrett is at the white house. >> reporter: for years donald trump told americans it was a waste of time but after months of discussion president trump will not only stay in afghanistan but increase the u.s. troop presence. there was talk but very few specifics and even fewer benchmarks. >> the american people are weary of war without victory. >> the president confided to a military audience and the nation that a complete withdrawal from afghanistan was a real option. >> my original instinct was to pull out and historically i like following my instincts.

7:08 am
marines, they are a long way from self-reliance. 40% of the country has fallen to the taliban. they're heavily dependent on u.s. marines, many who fought for the territory they're standing over, that very soil where so many american forces lost their lives now under taliban control again. the taliban have weighed in too, saying they would continue their fight as long as a single american soldier remains on afghan soil. >> thank you. congressional republicans are applauding the new strategy for afghanistan. chairman john mccain called the president's plan a big step in the right direction. and a tv town hall meeting paul ryan said last night he was pleased with the decision. >> i think i heard a new trump strategy or a doctrine so to speak. principle real iechl is hism is

called an operational pause. what they want to do is give their ship commanders a chance to work with their crews on team work after several incidents in training.c have called into >> a gaping hole in the side of another u.s. warship could be a sign of a bigger problem in the pacific. the u.s.s. john mccain suffered damage while it collided with a tanker in singapore. navy officials have not considered a looss of steering. >> we need to get to the bottom of this, so let's get to it. >> in a video, the chief of naval operations called for all u.s. navy ships worldwide to halt operations and review basic training. >> a more comprehensive review to ensure that we get at the
7:11 am
contributing factors, the root causes of these incidents. >> just two months ago another ship from the 7th fleet, the u.s.s. fitzgerald collided with a merchant ship off the coast of jap japan. on friday the captain was relieved of his duties and several other sailors were punished, a sign that mistakes were made. >> it does show there's some kind of issue on the deck of whether or not there are people that are qualified, whether they're certified and whether or not they are using all of the things at their disposal to make sure this doesn't happen again. >> there have now been four incidents involving ships from the p seventh fleet. a guided missile cruiser and another cruiser ran aground in tokyo bay. >> i think every commander will look at their specific units, evaluate the climate and make
7:12 am
changes in order to make that unit better. >> china is now taking advantage of these incidents with these u.s. navy ships. an editorial today said very bluntly that the u.s. navy is becoming a dangerous obstacle in asian waters and posing a threat to and a half gags. part of the reason china is saying this is because it opposes u.s. navy ships through waters it claims as its own. >> more than 40 people were hurt overnight when a cteutde philad. it happened just after midnight. the local transportation authority said the high speed train slammed into an empty parked train. at least four of those injuries are serious and one passenger described the moment of impact. >> my face hit the wall, put a big hole in the wall and i went straight down, i blacked out. it was loud and it hurt, but --
7:13 am

7:15 am
tension here in phoenix, the city's mayor says this is not the right time for this large scale political event. >> i believe the true intention is to really inflame people's passion to further divide the country and that's why i said the president should delay this trip to phoenix. >> a major concern says the president could use this rally to pardon the lawman awaiting sentencing of up to six months in jail after a federal judge found he broke the law when his office carried out traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. >> that would just put gasoline on that potential flame. that would be a really bad thing, not just for phoenix but for the entire united states. >> among a number of arizona politicians currently at odds with the president including some in his own party. >> it's a shell of a bill right now. >> it was arizona's republican senator john mccain who provided

8:01 am
expected to attend this campaign style rally but there are going to be some protesters here tonight. >> the navy is calling it an operational pause. they've called into questioning the level of training on u.s. navy trips. >> the eclipse. >> if you missed this one, don't worry. the next one is in 2024 and it will cover much of the eastern and central u.s. >> i'm going to check out the sun one more time with my special glasses here. this is the anybody can do on television. >> if any of you watched without protective glasses, hi, i'm ryan gosling. very good. and i'm beyonce for those of you whose glasses were broken or you
8:02 am
can just call me gayle king. charlie is off. norah is on assignment but we have everything covered. president trump is changing his mind on afghanistan and sending more troops to fight america's longest war. in a prime time address he laid out his new strategy for the war that began after 9/11, 1s >> diplomatic sources tell me that there will likely be upw d upwards of 4,000 additional troops. he is not writing a blank check for the war but he insisted the u.s. needs to remain there to prevent afghanistan from falling into the wrong hands again. >> a hasty withdrawal would create a vacuum that terrorists including isis and al qaeda would instantly fill just as happened before september 11th.
8:03 am
we are not nation building again. we are killing terrorists. >> major garrett is at the white house with the president's decision. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this decision took months and in that time the taliban grew stronger launching more attacks, gaining more territory, particularly in eastern afghanistan. as the president debated whether to stay in afghanistan and support what the white house calls a serious but still weak and at times corrupt central government in kabul. the president did consider leaving afghanistan entirely. also gave thought to sending private mercenaries but in the end the pentagon persuaded him to stay and add more u.s. troops. there is no exit plan. no timetable. and the white house cannot describe how to judge the effectiveness of this particular approach. saying only it will know what progress looks like when they see it. the president also stressed what he is not doing, no nation building, no blank check. the ultimate goal, a political
8:04 am
settlement with the taliban and the defeat of other terror groups. those are the same goals pursued by president obama and pakistan must stop being a safe hain for terror groups. the white house has implied it may impose more costs on pakistan either through sanctions or more targeted u.s. military strikes inside that country. >> thank you. republican senator paul a long time critic of u.s. military intervention is writing they have lost its purpose. it is time to come home now. at the very least congress should vote on it and i'll be leading the charge for no. lindsay graham praised his words last night. graham said if it came to a vote he would urge his colleagues to support it. >> i will fight senator paul
8:05 am
tooth and nail to make sure we don't lose an afghanistan like we did in iraq. it's exactly what president obama did in iraq. president trump has the smarts and the moral courage to listen to his generals and take their advice rather than going the political way and i'm so proud he did. >> graham said he believes the president would have bipartisan support. vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff during the obama administration, admiral, good morning. >> good morning, gayle. >> even before donald trump became a presidential candidate he was critical of the administration's handling of afghanistan and he certainly turned it up a knew notches but last night he said for the first time, when you sit at the desk in the oval office you are forced to make different and difficult decisions. what did you make of what appears to be a big change of heart for him? >> this was about the transition
8:06 am
from real and simple rhetoric on a campaign trail to sort of adult grownup national security problems and i give the president a little bit of credit for listening to the advisors. and he actually changed his mind. it was almost a stunning admission that he had changed his mind. it gave me the sense that there are some areas where he realizes that he's outflanked from expertise and he needs to listen to these people and i do think that he asked the right questions which is the president's responsibility to do. what are our security interests there versus what are the prices that we have to pay and at the end of the day he listened and reasonable way forward. >> a step in the right direction? >> i think it's a reasonable way forward. minor changes to existing policy to be honest with you, but a sustainable counterterrorist approach in afghanistan. >> but what does an additional
8:07 am
4,000 do that boots on the ground did not? would you advocate a full withdrawal at this point? >> no, i would not. i think the president was clear in the means that our ends to remain intact there. and that's to prevent an attack on this city. what he did was sort of fine tune the approach on the face of it percentage wise it's a 50% increase. it's only 4,000 troops which is a fairly modest increase. they will assist the security forces to enable them to handle this problem themselves. >> do you think this is really a korea like situation which is u.s. troops are just going to have to be there for the long haul? >> one of the characteristics of 21 century war which is there is no final end date. if you ask, you know, sort of what does victory mean in
8:08 am
afghanistan, you'd like for it to mean a nice stable afghan government, that it's not threatened by the taliban or terrorists but in fact, it's probably the end state would be there are no attacks conducted on that country from that nation. >> a commander once told me, you go to a high school in america and you ask how many of you are willing to day for their country and every hand goes up and how their county. and they're confused. you've got tribes to fight for a valley or a village but the idea of a cohesive country is foreign to 'em this. how does nation building -- i guess that's what happened to nation bie nation building? >> he turned around and talked about using all the elements of national power, helping them with the economy and having the end state where they can take care of themselves but he also made it clear that we're there to take out the terrorist threat
8:09 am
to defend this country. >> what are your points on pakistan because the obama administration really struggled with this too. >> of all our allies around the world, pakistan is one of the most difficult. in that south asian culture they will undermine you at the same time they support we both have interests in that region and sometimes pakistani interests are different than ours. there is no black or white with pakistan. you have to deal with it as it is and i think it's going to take a lot of diplomatic pressure. >> we didn't hear a lot about diplomacy last night. >> i think the real room is to make sure that our nato partners are on board which it sounds like that are and intense pressure on pakistan to step up a little bit more than they have been. >> well, we'll keep reporting on it. admiral, thank you for your analysis.
8:10 am
>> you're very welcome. a new jersey city is experimenting with a more cost effective bodyeporr: coming up, show you the new tool that officers use and it looks just like a normal phone. >> that's ahead.

recent officer involved shootings are increasing the demand for police body cameras, but the camera's high price is delaying those new programs. in new jersey alone it would cost an estimated 88 and a half million dollars for the more than 35,000 officers in the state to have one.
8:16 am
instead of buying new cameras, police in jersey city will use their cell phones. we went to jersey city to find out how this first of a kind program will work. >> reporter: good morning. officers here in jersey city tried traditional body cameras three years ago but the software didn't work very well and the data storage was expensive. then he learned about a much cheaper option using something that's right in our pockets. when police officer prepares to go out on foot patrol he straps on his gear, which now includes a body camera in a cell phone. the police issued cell phone is set to a mode that only allows it to function as a cop camera. the officer turns the cam pa on nd the recorded footage streams directly to a secure server at the police department. jersey city is the first city in the u.s. to try this less
8:17 am
expensive method to record officers' actions. >> i think we were early to the conversation. >> when we started exploring body cameras google mentioned they may have a solution that they've worked with elsewhere in the world and we said yeah, we'll take a look. >> reporter: a sister company called jigsaw developed the app called cop cast. the new system offers more data storage options than traditional body cams which helps lower the system's price by millions of dollars. >> not new york, not chicago, jersey city. >> i think it's a great place to try innovative solutions to challenges in governments. it's big enough that you can see what happens and try different things and it's small enough that if it doesn't work, you can change and adapt. >> reporter: they plan to roll out the cameras to all of its
8:18 am
932 officers in the fall. >> how much does this weigh? >> that is heavy. >> reporter: the system isn't perfect. the department wants to make the cameras lighter weight and the officer who held admits not all residents liked ituations where there are service to calls and people don't want the police there. we come in and they get camera shy and they don't want to deal with us. >> the mayor says get used to it. he foresees a day when those cameras may be worn with every city employee that deals with the public. >> the quality of the service is going to be top notch and if anything slips there's going to be a chance to correct it. >> isn't it a little big brotherish? >> i think it's to deliver the best service possible. >> last time i heck -- checked
8:19 am
there weren't any who shot. >> when you're in a world of terrorist risks and security risks these sort of tools are important. it's a reality of where we are today so do i think some people are going to say this is like big brother? yes. do i think ultimately this is where we end up from a tepoli departments? yes, as well. >> reporter: for now the cameras are staying within the police department and the department says it will be focused on looking at recorded video after any incidents, but supervisors do have the capability to live stream this video and monitor it as it happens and the department isn't ruling out the possibility of using that capability eventually. >> all right. thank you. fonow it seems the pros outweigh the cons. >> we'll see how it plays out. >> i can picture a day when we

8:26 am
severe weather up through the poconos so if you are north of the city today, do be weather aware. we could get strong gusty winds as of locally heavy rain , and also chance for maybe some stronger storms down closer to the delaware vale as well. 93 degrees for the high today. heat index up near 100, 84 tomorrow, and then we get cooler into the 80s and even some 70s, meisha, by the weekend. >> all right, matt, thank you so many. so in the world of travel, i can tell you, still looking pretty busy. see penndot wizzing the camera around, the main bulk, two accidents, on 59 north, right now, that's what they're trying to find both for you, 95 north at girard, accident involving 17 vehicles. again, this is headlights moving in the northbound direction. but then 95 north, just past girard, there is another accident there, that's blocking all but one lane there, as well. so if you have to take 95, moving in the northbound direction, if i were you, i would say at least give yourself an extra hour at this point or avoid it, rahel, over to you. >> meisha, thank you, next update 8:55, ahead this morning, brave new world of
