militants with the strongest language yet to e merge from the obama administration. chuck hagel says the goal is not to contain isis, but to destroy the militant group on the rise in iraq and syria. vice president biden in an emotional speech said the u.s. would follow isis to the gates of hell to hold them accountable. >> as a nation, we're united. when people harm americans, we don't retreat. we don't forget. we take care of those who are grieving, and when that's finished, they should know we'll follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice because hell is where they will reside. hell is where they will reside. >> meanwhile, learning more about steven sotloff, second u.s. journalist to be beheaded by the militants. sotloff was an israeli citizen and israeli newspaper reports he
faked being sick to fast on the jewish holiday of yom kippur. they challenged a debate on islam and gave a touching tribute to sotloff. >> steve had a gentle soul this world will be without, but his spirit will endure in our hearts. today, we grieve. this week, we mourn, but we'll emerge from this. our village is strong. we will not allow our enemies to hold us hostage with the soul weapons they possess, fear. >> defense secretary chuck hagel says the u.s. knows of more than 100 americans fighting with isis overseas. in app exclusive interview, one u.s. citizen named don morgan detailed attempts to become a member of isis. >> someone has to defend islam and innocent muslims. >> we interviewed him in beirut.
he did not hide intention to join isis which calls itself the islamic state. >> i purchased a ticket with the intent of entering the syria, joining up with medical and food aid cop vois or with the islamic state. a push came from being mistreated from people around me who did not share the view i had. >> reporter: he decided to join isis last june and began to make his way from beirut to syria, but he was stopped on the way by authorities in turkey and sent back. >> morgan is in federal prison because he allegedly tried to sell a gun online despite having a prior up related felony. with the nato summit about to begin, pew tip laid out a proposal to enthe conflict in eastern ukraine. the times reports a seven point plan was apparently written out in a flight over siberia. in wales, they'll take the
proposal under consideration as they mull a rapid response europe for eastern europe and round of sapgss. meanwhile, u.s., u.k., and others send troops to take part in ten days of exercises with the ukrainian military, and in the devicive move, france decided after pressure from the u.s. not to send a 1.7 billion warship to russia. russia's behavior has undermine the security of the continent. back at home, new developments in fergson, missouri over an unarmed shooting of a black teen by an officer. the justice department is expected to announce a civil rights investigation into the city's police department. the doj is investigating last month's shooting of michael brown leading todays of heated and violence protests. however, this investigation looks at the conduct of the
police department over several years. the probe is similar to investigations that looked into alleged profiling and excessive force, and in the past five years, the justice department opened 20 similar investigation of police departments across the country. raising minimum wage is on the arkansas state ballot after a petition received twice the signatured needed. if passed, it raises the minimum wage from $6.25 an hour to $7.50 in 2016, and $8.50 in 2017. it could be a wedge issue in the race, and they embraced the increase in february calling it the right thing to do and signing on to the petition. the opponent, the republican congressman, tom cotton, has yet to take an official position on it. democratic senator, elizabeth warren, criticizes former house majority leader, cantor, to take a multimillion dollar job on wall street being the vice
chairman and managing director of an investment bank earning $300 million in the next two years. in an interview, senator warren says it sends a pretty bad message. >> you know, how wrong can this be that basically what's happening here is that people work in washington and, man, they hit a resvolving door with speed that blinds you and heads straight out into the industry, not because they bring great expertise and insight, but because they are selling excess back into their former colleagues still writing policy and making laws. >> warren was less blunt, however, asked about hillary clinton's relationship with the financial industry. >> i'm curious if you think that hillary clinton is too cozy with wall street? i know you disagreed with her in the past on issues like bankruptcy legislation.
>> you know, i worry a lot about the relationship between all our regulators, government, and wall street, and here's how i think about this -- >> what about hillary clinton in particular? >> i worry across the board. here's part of why. we've got in washington now that works for nip who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers, and it doesn't work for regular families. families don't have armies of lobbyists. they don't have armies of lawyers. that's why it's so critical now we speak up on core issues. >> so republican scott brown is generating talk after comments made in a town hall in new hampshire. the video released by american bridge 21st century, an opposition research group. brown challenging democratic senator shaheen was asked what
he'd do to create jobs in the state. >> what do you do to create jobs snt state? i'm not going to create jobs. it's not my job to great job. it's yours. mine is to ensure government stays out of your way so you can grow and expand and obamacare is a great example, the number one job right now is obamacare. >> a poll last month shows that shaheen led by two points with a margin of error. what do you think of former senator brown's comments about it's not my job to create jobs, it's yours. tweet us your answers using the hashtag way too early. interested to hear what you think about that. the democratic candidate for u.s. senate in kansas dropped out, possibly throwing a wrench in republicans' plan to retake the senate. you think that would make republican senator roberts' re-election bid a lock. that's wrong. we have democrat chad taylor struggling, submitted withdrawal yesterday to the secretary of the state.
he had. reported by discussing the exit, and now democrats in the state may rally around greg orman, independent who will caucus with whatever party works to fix washington. roberts is seen as a vulnerable candidate getting through an ugly primary. a federal judge upsed louisiana's ban on same-sex marriage. the first state to do this since the supreme court ruled against the defense of marriage act writing, quote, public attitude is diverse, but any right to same-sex marriage is not end trenched to be fundamental. the couples who sue the plan on appealing the decision. a huge first for the new york st. patrick' day parade. the ban is lifted on openly gay groups marching in the parade. now, the parade was under heavy pressure from the mayor who would not march in the parade because of the policy and
guiness, a sponsor, dropped out, pulled their backing, one of several. the only group marching, an organization here called out at nbc universal. it's huge and a big deal, and the parade has a 250-year history in new york city. shifting attention to business news now. mixed day wednesday, dow up nearly 11, but the s&p and nasdaq both down. cnbc joins us live from london on what to expect today, jeff, good morning. >> reporter: yeah, good morning to you. very difficult session yesterday finishing the trading day really at lowing for the day for most of the markets. this morning, looking at a relatively flat start to trade as far as futures are concerned, but we have a few hours here for those to improve. big question is, though, where will the driver come from? it'll not be in the united states, i fear. we have central bank meetings in europe, both at the bank of england and european central
bank, and after that jackson hole meeting, there's a lot of pressure on mr. draghi to come up with something new at the ecb to stimulate the eurozone economies. the markets in the u.s., i think, will be watching the lead from that press conference over at the ecb. i'll tell you who will want to see something positive here, and that's apple shareholders. 26 billion dollars wiped off the value of apple in trade yesterday. couple things going on here. this is interesting. you had a good time if you've been in the stock, up 32% over the last six months, and so that's been good, but they are running into problems. one is this naked celebrity story, which has people concern about security of their accounts with apple and the icloud in general, and the other one is there's a pacific crest analyst who put out a sell note yesterday saying maybe it's time to take some profits on apple, and that's exactly what happened. apple share price off over 4% in yes's trade. be interesting to see whether it
picks up some momentum today. back to you. >> interesting story we're getting about the former new york city mayor bloomberg going back to the old stomping grounds? >> fascinating, isn't it? of course, michael bloomberg, eight months since leaving office as mayor? now showing up more an in the offices of bloomberg, still owns 88 % of the company, and desp e december 72, he's inclined to be at the helm of the company he founded. you know what? there are those saying, no, no, no, he's taking more interest. i don't think he is going to become more hands on, but you wouldn't get that impression from the resignation of the ceo, that will step aside at the end of it 2014, confused as everybody else what mike me bloomberg wants to do with the company, but he's in the afgs more than he used to, speaking
volumes. >> expect the unexpected from the former mayor. jeff, thank you. good to see you. update on joan rivers out of intensive care after she stopped breathing in a throat procedure. she was moved to a private room in the hospital where she's in new york city. in a brief statement, the 81-year-old comedian is resting comfortably, however, she did not say why she was moved out of the icu or if she's still on life support, but we send that family our best. still ahead on "way too early" michael sam in a new jersey, but will he be a starter in dallas? we got new images on the field with the cowboys. say cheese, one guess what this woman was accused of stealing in arkansas. why she was arrested. anyway -- arrested in a beauty supply store. bless her heart. that story and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back.
