3:00 am
yes. it snowed. welcome to "morning joe." mark halperin and david ignatius in washington with us this morning along with willie joe, and me. you went to cpac this weekend. >> i did. >> how was that? >> you went to see martin short. >> i did. >> and matthew broderick. >> it's good, right? >> so good. it was fantastic. an martin short set up champagne backstage for me. >> really? that sounds like fun. >> yes, it was lots of fun. it was great. >> did he talk about releasing the hostages? >> no. but the play is -- that's funny. the play is really good. it's a little bit like us. >> how so? >> with ratings and ups and downs. it's about the narcissism of being on stage and the love of
3:01 am
theater. it was good. >> stock cardard channing was great in it. >> great moments. >> what did you do? >> friday night i took my nephews to wrestling, wwe wrestling, madison square garden. he father-in-law, brother-in-law. >> was it on the up and up? >> of course it was on the up and up. >> the officiating was terrible. the refs. hulk hogan appreciation night. the place was rocking. >> george w. love it? >> we h didn't go. he's a little young. a lot going on. people flying at you. it's -- you know. >> you're the best uncle since donald duck. >> uncle willie. >> how was cpac? >> what did you learn at cpac? >> i learned that scott walker is doing something. people really like scott walker. >> really? >> and jeb bush knows what he's doing. going to be hard to beat.
3:02 am
>> think so? >> just because he knows what he's doing. people think he's rusty, he's wokking as hard as anybody else. >> who are the winners at cpac? >> those two guys. walker, bush rand paul and fiorina. >> 8%. let me ask you this question about jeb. >> yeah. >> because i do think -- i mean he survived. but did you run into one person that wasn't brought in on buses that said i'm for jeb bush? >> no. that's one of his biggest problems. that derives from his name and also the fact that people don't know him. >> very interesting though that i thought he did well. i thought, you look at jeb's eight years as governors and hez a conservative/libertarian. i thought it was absolutely fascinating. i mean, this is a great, great example of branding. this is all about branding. it's not about reality. a couple of issues. not a single person there was --
3:03 am
was organically for jeb bush. they shipped in a lot of people from -- >> but they don't know him. that's the issue. i think as people get to know him he will win some of them. >> i thought he did well on stage. >> joe, for people who aren't inside that world what are the big hangups among conservatives? >> common core and immigration. a lot of people would look at what jeb did and say good job because of both of those issues. i disagree with him on those issues but you've got to respect a man, with people beoo'ing this is what believe and this is why i believe it. most people up there sucking up to the crowd and saying exactly what they think the crowd wants them to say. jeb did not. and he went right at them and you've got to respect a guy that does that. >> we're going to have more on cpac coming up. also, hillary clinton might move her launch date to april. that's just a month away. we'll talk about what's behind
3:04 am
that. but that's kind of brewing now. we're getting closer to something to these races getting hotter. right now though we're just days away. a day away from israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu's controversial speech to congress. the prime minister arrived last night in washington and adviser says the speech will not does respect president obama but will warn lawmakers about the troubling concessions that may be part of the nuclear talks with iran. secretary of state john kerry will be meeting with iran's foreign minister in geneva instead of attending the speech. kerry is also scheduled to defend israel this morning before the u.n. human rights council. it appears to be part of an effort by secretary kerry to reduce the rising tensions between the united states and israel. >> i talked to the prime minister regularly including yesterday. we are not -- we don't want to see this turned into great political football. obviously it was odd, if not
3:05 am
unique that we learned of it from the speaker of the house and the administration was not included this this process. but the administration is not seeking to politicize this. we want to recognize the main goal here is to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. and on that israel and united states a agree. >> "the new york times" points out that jewish democrats find themselves torn on whether or not to attend netanyahu's speech. senator dianne feinstein of california will attend the speech despite strong reservations. >> when netanyahu says he's coming to speak he says he speaks for all jews. does he speak for you? >> no he doesn't speak for me on this. he doesn't at all speak for me on this. >> does that bother you when he says that? >> yes, i think it's a rather arrogant statement. i think the jewish community is like any other community, there are different points of view. so i think that arrogance does
3:06 am
not befit israel candidly. >> mark despite the protests senator feinstein is going to go to the speech. are there democrats who dare not attend the speech. they protest loudly publicly. >> a couple dozen or more that won't go. i don't think that's going to matt matter much. what's going to matter is what netanyahu's tone is whether they're in the room or not. i think he's going to try to be respectful of the president but the division on them between this and to come here and lobby against what the president wants -- >> what if a senator from florida -- >> attend? >> -- a senator from new york -- >> i think what matter mores is what they say afterwards. that's where they will have to take political risks. >> i would not want to be on the front page of let's say, the "miami herald" if i were bill nelson and decided not to show up or the front page of the new york post if i were chuck
3:07 am
schumer. >> american jews are divided. the -- there will be enough that won't go that they can get away with not going. >> i'm not being difficult here. but they will go. >> most of them will the pressure is after. critiquing what the prime minister says is going to si vid a lot of people. >> david ignatius what are you looking for from benjamin netanyahu's speech? what are you expecting? >> the first thing i would say is this really is going to be a moment of high drama in a kopg that so often is preoccupied with small ball. there really is a deep person amount divide between this israeli prime minister netanyahu, and president obama. there's a fundamental political move taking place in which republicans are seeking to bond more closely with israel which has lots of implications for american politics going forward. and then fundamentally overwhelmingly it's a policy decision. netanyahu is coming here because he really thinks the agreement that president obama is close to
3:08 am
getting with iran is dangerous for israel and he's going to try to explain why. i think people should listen carefully to his arguments. and then in following days, the administration officials, but it's going to be a moment that's really, i think, television worth watching how netanyahu gives this speech also will affect him in powerfully in the israeli elections which are scheduled in two weeks on march 17th. >> i was going to ask you, david. obviously we're about to show you some polls that show where theern manies stand on this issue. israel appears to be split. an ad appearing in newspapers this morning has over 100 security officials in israel saying the mistake is -- the speech is a big mistake, that netanyahu shouldn't do it. what did you find in israel? what are you finding in israel about reaction to this speech? >> joe, as you know i just was in israel a week ago and i found a country genuinely divided over the wisdom of netanyahu's making this case so publicly and
3:09 am
seeming to side with one party. israel is always dependent on bipartisan support in the u.s. congress. netanyahu by accepting speaker boehner's invitation and ignoring the white house seems to be changing that. there are many people who argue as these generals and former intelligence officers did, this is not good for israel to be seen so clearly on one side of the american political debate not in the center talking to both sides. >> there are new nbc news "wall street journal" polls showing the reaction to prime minister netanyahu's presentation. it breaks along party lines. nearly half of all americans believe house speaker boehner was wrong to invite netanyahu without consulting president obama. two thirds of democrats share that view but just 28% of republicans groo we and 30% of americans have a favorable opinion of israel's prime minister compared to 17% with a negative view.
3:10 am
>> have you made your mind up yet? >> i don't think he should come. you know how i feel about it. i do think the democrats dealing with whether they should go or not should go. it's the house of congress. it's their house. they should be there. they should see it. it's not their fault the republicans were so hand fisted and made such a stupid decision to undermine the president and bring him here but they should listen and support as best they can. >> i think republicans are guilty. they're guilty of loving israel. >> they're guiltying of pandering and undermining and being divisive which quite frachingly guilty of being just who they are and not changing and turp turning the page like some had promised. >> guilty of caring too much. front page of "the boston globe" shows a frightening story. her friend ian bremer on saturday night calling the murdering of vladimir putin's top opponent is the low point in u.s./ u.s./russian relations since the end of the cold war. this is a frightening man who
3:11 am
just does not give a dmn. we had somebody on the show suggesting he's worth $200 billion. he is detached from reality. he does what he wants to do. and i think both george w. push and barack obama willie have underestimated the danger that vladimir putin poses, not just -- >> again -- >> -- not just to his region which barack obama tries to down play him as a declining regional power. this is an extraordinarily dangerous man. who will gun down his political opponents in the shadow of the kremlin? he fears nobody. he fears nothing. he's been killing journalists for a decade now. >> chechnya. >> this is brazen by putin's standards. there were huge crowds in russia out today again demanding answers of the murder of
3:12 am
outspoken critic of krit tib vladimir putin. boris nemstov was gunned down outside the kremlin. nemtsov was a foreign deputy prime minister who pushed for democracy in mass coand spoke out about corruption for years. world leaders praised nemstov as activist. tens of thousands of people marched in moscow to honor his memory. >> this march is meant of course, to have been a protest against the war in ukraine. boris nemstov would have been at the front. it is one of the ironies that his face here is now everywhere as the crowd approaches the bridge at the point where he was killed. overlooking the scene, the walls of the kremlin from where many people marching today believe the orders to kill him may have come. >> unbelievable willie. you know stalin at least had show trials. i mean this is just -- they
3:13 am
just gunned him down there right in front of the kremlin. >> there was an incredible photograph of the body laying on the bridge and the kremlin just behind it. literally in the shadow. david ignatius we've already heard from the russian government. perhaps it was isis. perhaps it was the cia. perhaps it was because of his girlfriend a model nemstov was dating. long list of potential suspects in this. is there anywhere else to point right now than vladimir putin and the kremlin? >> well, today it's speculation to accuse putin of this. we don't know that. in some ways the biggest shock to me was the utterly cynical statement that putin's government released after this murder in which they in effect blamed the liberals, nemstov's own people saying they killed him to make president putin look bad. that did echo right out of the 1930s, the moscow purge trials.
3:14 am
it was a tragic to see this country slipping back so fast into what is such a dark past. nemstov was a person who really stood for the idea of an open democratic russia more than anybody i can remember using his web materials about russian corruption funny. he had a sense of humor. he was always willing to poke fun at putin and the people around him. now he's gone. >> david what are the chances that this leads to an uprising of the middle class, of intellectual, of journalists, and that this backfires on the russian government? >> the turnout for the vigil yesterday in moscow was much larger than people had expected. the estimates are that it was as high as 50,000. approaching the numbers of people who were protesting in the period when putin was still quite an unpopular figure, suggesting there may be a return
3:15 am
to that kind of activism. the problem is the putin government, as joe was saying earlier, has shown itself willing to be ruthless in suppressing descent. people were carrying signs in moscow saying we are not afraid. we're going to find out if they're afraid and what they might be afraid of. >> i saw a friend of the victim on "meet the press" and i understand your job is not to speculate, so i appreciate your words. i'll speculate. >> we need at least one person here not speculating and we thank davis for filling that role. >> but the question he had was why we keep treating putin like some kind of democratic ruler who can be reasoned with when he's not. >> mika if i could just respond to that. when i talk to russian experts they are deeply worried about putin and searching for the way to deter him, help him climb down from this really untenable position that he has. but they also worry about what
3:16 am
might lie beyond putin. there are dark forces in this society. what we saw was the russian knight of vladimir putin darken concernably with this murder. one of the leading american russian experts who i encountered friday night just after we learned of this man's death was trembling and saying to me almost imploring, david, don't you see what could be next? there are people out there who will take russia back 200 years. i think there's concern about that. we just don't know what's over in next hill in russia. >> all right, david, your concept on this joe? i'm not speculating. >> i got to say. and david remembers very well 1989, 1990 1991 you had russia, just explain to people who don't remember and saying how could you say there might be something worse than vladimir putin. before the soviet union broke up for the five years after, they
3:17 am
were in -- there was economic an or i can, mill care an? i can, social anarchy, it was a system -- a country that blew apart in a million pieces. in 1990 -- 1991 1992 1993 a lot of people were concerned about all the nuclear weapons that they had. so their stability has to follow putin and there's a good reason to be fear chul about what comes after vladimir putin. but we have putin right now. they don't think he's going anywhere. it's important that barack obama stops treating him, as the economists says he's treating him, like -- and russia like a declining regional power. he's not. and it's going to be important for us at some point to put more troops into poland to put more troops in the balkins, or send a message to a guy who is a bully who presumably has no problems
3:18 am
gunning down one of his main a opponents in front of the kremlin and he needs to understand, if he wants to flex his muscles so he looks tough and looks nationalist to his people by putting more troops in the ukraine he needs to understand we are going to counter that with a move that's going to be embarrassing to him. >> let me move on to isis now because we have news there as well. a large-scale operation is under way to recapture saddam hussein's hometown from militants in iraq. the bat is unfolding in tikrit 80 miles north of baghdad. iraqi security forces are being helped we iraqi fighter jets. iraqi television is reporting the assault as taking place in various parts of tikrit. isis seized control of the town last summer. over in syria, isis has released 19 christians that it kidnapped last week, released them. there are about 200 still being held hostage.
3:19 am
it comes amid news the first group of syrian opposition forces to receive weapons from the u.s. has disbanded the rebels, spent months fighting the front linked to al qaeda. and new security camera footage has emerged that appears to show three missing british schoolgirls at a bus station in istanbul on february 18th. the girls left their homes the day before and officials believe they headed to syria to join isis. >> let's bring in nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engel live in istanbul. richard, what can you tell us about this effort to take back tikrit led by iraqi forces? >> i think led by iraqi rs tos but you have to look at the makeup of the iraqi forces to understand what's going on. they are some iraqi army there is a large portion of a relatively new group, described as the m shaabi popular mobilization forces.
3:20 am
that's how you translate it. it is a shiite militia with close ties to iran and there are some sunni arab fighters. you some -- three very different groups. all three groups that are united more or less with the objective of destroying isis and pushing them out. but the sunni arabs and the shiite militias do not have the same kind of goal, longer term goals for iraq and there are real concerns if the shiite militias do enter tikrit they could commit some human rights abuses as they shiite militias have done in other sunni areas that they have quote, unquote, liberated. the offensive is none the less continuing. s with irstrikes taking place on the si of tikrit and troops more or less with the shiite militias on the outskirts of tikrit. they're just bombing tikrit at this stage and haven't really pushed into the heart of the city. but something to watch closely because it could be a model for future offense is if it works.
3:21 am
>> richard, tell me about the 19 christians that were released by isis. we're not used to these sort of headlines. they're certainly not doing a pr front in syria, are they? >> no they're absolutely not. and they released people who were -- they released some women and children and they released some elderly after an isis court determined they shouldn't be held. what is deeply concerning about this is if they released these 19 because a court said that they deserve to be released what are they planning to do with the other 200 to 250 people who apparently now m court determined isis deserves to old? are they going to be sold off? are they going to be execute in the some sort of mass grotesque event? we really don't know at this stable what's going to happen with this very large number of hostages. >> richard engel, thank you very much. coming up on "morning joe," the chairman of the army

with us now, the director of student columbia university, economist, dr. jeffrey sachs, author of "the age of sustain sustainable development." >> congratulations. >> thank you. >> what do we do with a problem like vladimir putin? >> it's a -- it is unbelievably bad. i knew boris nemstov myself. wonderful man. incredibly brave. very decent. and you referred back to the events 25 years ago when the cold war was ending. >> yeah. >> nemstov was a young reformed leader then. joe, like so many things we didn't pay attention then to give the reformers the support that they needed. we allowed things because we were neglectful we just didn't do our part. >> what do we do now? >> now there are no easy choices
3:37 am
right now. you know it's -- we have a very, very tough, very cynical, very brutal regime that we're facing. >> is vladimir putin the most dangerous man on the planet right now? >> well, we have a huge conflict that we're facing and he's ready to assert russian power in his neighborhood. on the other hand, that's a power that we're not going to go to war. >> right. >> it's a power that also strapgstrangely enough has shared interest in the united states and middle east. russia does not want iran to get a new hampshire caucus clar weapon. russia does not isis to dominate. so russia is fighting for its role and influence in ukraine. it's brutal at home. and there are interests abroad. this is just complicated foreign affairs. >> it seems simplistic i'm sure.
3:38 am
how do we get anything accomplished in terms of our shared interests if he is potentially murdering people at will and most people think he is silencing voices that go against him in lots of different ways, and taking on ukraine the way he is and droig them andestroying them and killing people. how do we deal with someone who is clearly in the not in his right mind and potentially evil? >> i want to say either of those we're dealing with a very very tough adversary. >> there's no trust. >> i think the idea that everybody that is of different interests is not of their right mind is not a helpful starting point. it's to think of what his strategic interests are, staying in power and pursuing russian interests as cease themhe sees them.
3:39 am
>> we're sitting at 7 billion people today, we had 75 million people to the planet every year on average. that may get worse. how do we do that? >> well, we again, you know and we're sitting here in another one of these weird went winters where we're freezing and the rest of the world is burning up because everything is disrupted. we have to think ahead which is precisely what we have not been doing. we have to take seriously the population issue, we have to take seriously absolutely the climate change issue. these are things that we don't really want to talk about very much. and climate change we know we have a major negotiation at the end of this year. it's our last chance to keep the human warming below the two degrees rise the two degrees celsius rise that would create a
3:40 am
disaster for the planet. >> you listed the things that can be done economically development to help this. i see roads, ports, railway, fiber optic systems, education, health care as well. why do you think infrastructure is so important? we have a situation here in san francisco where public transport is bursting at the seams and they just can't hold anymore people. how do we get ahead of that? >> everything we need to do is to be smarter. we're sitting on the biggest information revolution in history. our vehicles are changing completely, so what automobiles can be we're all going to be driving a lot smarter considers or self-driving vehicles in the future. electric vehicles rather than internal combustion engine vehicles. that means a lot of change of how we organize our cities. i'm happy that mayor de blasio here in new york city has said we've got to make a complete changeover in how we're operating to be sustainable in
3:41 am

welcome back to "morning joe." it's 45 past the hour. here with us now assistant professor at columbia university school of international and public affairs and former associate political scientist for the rand corporation, austin long. austin, good to meet you. and in washington democratic representative from california and ranking member of the permanent select committee on intelligence congressman adam schiff. if i can start with you on the murder of boris nemstov, where do you take it from here? >> it's a terrible tragedy. we may never know who was responsible or whether the kremlin's hands are on this but it is clear over the last decade or so a murder of political opponents ofimpunity. that has to be the responsibility of the putin government. we're not seeing the same bipolar world of capitalism and communism but there is a new
3:47 am
bipolar world where you have democracy versus authorityarian authoritarianism. and you see the neighbors follow in the footsteps. that's of grave concern. >> is putin denouncing the murder along with all the other options he gave for who might have done it beside himself perhaps being behind it? >> well, putin is denouncing it and purportedly called the widow or the mother rather of the victim to say that he would bring the killers to justice. you would expect that from a propaganda point of view. other political opponents have been murdered and their prosecutions have never gone forward. and that is very possibly going to be the case here. probably a lot of skepticism about who they do arrest if they make an arrest and whether they're a fall guy for those who were truly responsible. we may never know exactly who committed this horrible crime. >> professor long if the president called you and said i
3:48 am
want to do everything possible to influence erchs in russia and to try to contain putin, what would you tell him he could do? >> wow, that's a very tough question. i think as a congressman we're not back to the cold war but things are much her confrontational than two or three years ago. there's a lot the administration can do but nothing that's going to be decisive. >> what's one of the things we can do? we have sat by. we've signed a treaty with the ukraine say give us your fluke clar nuclear weapons. he violated that. we ignored it. it continues. obviously the status quo doesn't work. >> the status quo may not work. >> what do we do? >> even on the margins. >> the one that's the pig with topic is arming ukraine in terms of imposing costs. i don't think that's going to change russia's policy but it would impose costs. >> what about moving troops into the balkans for peacekeeping

3:50 am
economy they may begin to question whether this adventurism of putin is a good idea. >> congressman you going to benjamin netanyahu's speech tomorrow? >> yes, i am. >> with reservations or do you think it's a good idea? >> well, with strong reservations. i don't think the speaker should have ever extended the invitation in the manner that he did at the time that he did. i think it's been a terrible mistake and it threatens to erode the strong bipartisan support for israel and turn it into gop support for licud, which would be a tremendous de departure from the past. >> austin long thank you. nice to meet you. >> thanks. still ahead, the ad parody on "saturday night live" that some say went too far too soon. >> too soon? >> well we'll talk about it in a second.

4:05 am
israeli israeli's prime minister benjamin netanyahu's speech to congress. he arrived last night in washington. adviser says the speech will not disrespect president obama but will warn lawmakers about troubling concessions that may be part of the nuclear talks with iran. secretary of state john kerry will be meeting with iran's foreign minister in geneva instead of attending the speech p right now he's holding a news conference after defending israel before the u.n. human rights council earlier this morning. we'll be monitoring that and let you know what happens. as we do that joining us now from washington, national correspondent for "the atlantic" jeffrey goldberg. >> thank you. >> netanyahu's speech how is that playing in israel how important is that to u.s./israeli relations? >> well, we don't know how it's playing in israel yet, joe. it's clear that -- it's clear to me at least this is a campaign
4:06 am
stop for netanyahu 6,000 miles away from the closest voter. he's in a very tight race with the center right party and he needs to shore up his right wing base. he doesn't want voters drifting away from his party to some further right party. so this is an attempt to keep them in line. he needs to -- he just needs seats at this point. >> doesn't he risk alienating as many israelis as he gains? >> israelis he's going to alienate are not going to vote for him anyway. that's the calculation. they're voting from the center to the left. the people on the right mistrust obama and they like this kind of churchillian he's taking that only b.b. is strong enough to stand up to the president of the united states. >> as you noer very well churchill was mocked and ridiculed for warning of a coming threat in nazi germany. >> yeah. >> could netanyahu be right?
4:07 am
could be deal with be a dissass stare disaster for rayle? >> supers of the idea of a diplomatic solution for this. some of the features that we've heard about of this deal seem weak. it is true. the alternative to a deal no deal is also no solution. if there is no deal then iran can move back toward nuclear breakout if it wants. >> does there have to be a deal right now? >> does it have to be a deal right now, it seems as if -- it seems as if the ayatollah, the ultimate arbiter of this if this doesn't work in the coming months or month even the people who are doing the negotiateing, the foreign minister, these guys are going to lose whatever choose they have inside the system and the hard liners take over. this might be the moment to get the best deal possible. >> jeffrey, you can certainly understand -- i didn't mean to interrupt you. you can certainly understand
4:08 am
though why israelis inside their country right now in a year where jews gunned down in a deli in paris gunned down outside a synagogue in copenhagen, have seen antisemitism sweep across europe in very ugly ways might feel a bit more threatened in 2015 than they would even in 201. might be might be saying, right now, dealing with iran on nuclear weapons at a time when u.s./israeli relations, might not be the best time to strike a deal. >> i accept everything that you said. the issue is -- no look, you're right in the larger picture it seems as if we have not escaped the stream of history here generally. and i accept what you're saying. the only question is what is the best way to keep iran which is an antisemitic regime run by
4:09 am
antisemites who have said very clearly, i mean, they're a u.n. member state openly calling for the eradication of another u.n. member state. that's unprecedented in u.s. history. i understand what you're saying. all i'm saying is what is the best way to keep iran as far as possible from a bomb and that is the only calculation. the problem that netanyahu faces tomorrow in congress is he's going to make a very good argument about the weakness of whatever deal is taking shape. but he's got to offer an alternative that doesn't involve endless carpet bombing of iran which, by the way, would not permanently stop the program. >> withly? >> david ignatius we heard secretary john kerry say yesterday and a number of obama administration officials on this show saying last yeek p security relationship not the personal relationship but the security relationship between united states and israel have never been stronger.
4:10 am
how much of this if that's true or part of that is true how much of this is about a clash of personalities? how much of this is benjamin netanyahu and president obama not seeing eye to eye? >> some of it is certainly personality. that's been building for the last several years. i'd like to ask jeffrey what he thinks netanyahu will do if he loses this lobbying campaign? let's imagine he gets re-elected on march 17. but the deal goes through. what does netanyahu do then with an america that's made a deal with his greatest adversary? >> it's a fascinating question. i've been trying to turn this over in my mind david. i mean you know a couple years ago we were at the point where centcom planners were carrying around charts of the waxing and waning moon over the middle east. i guess we move back to that conversation about netanyahu taking unilateral action in the style of 1981 against iraqi nuclear reactor.
4:11 am
i find it hard to believe that netanyahu can go up against the entire world and basically fatality underline this deal by launching an attack. but, no you know the -- as mark halperin said the dirty little secret of this whole drama is that there are no good solutions. that when you have a country of skill and means and determination that seeks nuclear weapons, usually they get nuclear weapons eventually. so i don't know if he moves back toward the military option and obviously and i think we're in agreement on this he needs to find a better more effective means of communicating with the president of the united states who is the ultimate gaurantor here. >> i think the white house is bluffing a little bit on how optimistic they are about a deal. the only option is more sanctions. and holding more sanctions together particularly because
4:12 am
of europe very difficult to do. the israelis were against the u.s. opening bid on a deal. i still don't understand how an american president strikes a deal that israel doesn't applaud because it will be undermined. particularly politically in this country. no republican will think it's a good deal who netanyahu says it's a bad deal. netanyahu will say any deal is a bad deal. >> hillary clinton the last time i spoke to her about this in august struck a very hard line. i mean her wish is no uranium enrichment at all either. so you know she's going to be in an interesting position if obama strikes what is perceived in the center and the right as a weak deal because her inclinician, i think, is toward a tougher deal or no deal. >> all right. jeffrey goldberg thank you so much. moving to russian now. huge crowds in russia are
4:13 am
demanding answers about the murder of an outspoken critic of president vladimir putin. boris nemstov was gunned down many what's being called russia's highest profile assassination in neck kads. nemstov was a former deputy prime minister who pushed for democracy in moscow. >> look at this picture that broke on the wires friday night. his body is right there in front of the kremlin. >> well, he planned to release information detailing russia's military involvement in ukraine and lead a demonstration on sunday against the kremlin. if you're just wondering maybe perhaps what surrounds the concept of his murder. . tens of thousands of people marched in moscow to honor his memory. >> this march is meant, of course, to have been a protest against the war in ukraine. boris nemstov would have been one of the faces at the front. he is one of the ironies that his face here is now everywhere
4:14 am
as the crowd approaches the bridge and the point where he was killed. overlooking the scene, the walls of the kremlin from where many people marching today believe the orders to kim him may have come. >> here with us now from washington, former undersecretary of state for democracy and senior fellow at harvard, paula dobriansky. give us more of a sense of what boris nemstov had planned to do had he not been murdered. >> one of the most significant things he was planning to release was document trace literally indicating how the scale and the scope of russian military involvement in ukraine. and he actually had quite a bit of detail indicating that you have russian military not only
4:15 am
advising, they're on theground they're providing hardware. and that was a significant threat. and the demonstration that he was planning was to expose this. it would have been very damning because most russians do not have the specific detail. they're not hear that story. it was very threatening. >> go ahead, willie. >> paula, it's willie geist. nothing seems to deter vladimir putin, whether international sanctions or threats militarily. is there anything that can be done by the international community that will make this man feel that he's beening pinched? >> well, you know, i think there are a number of steps that can be taken. first of all, when the ukrainians have requested defensive military assistance we should be moving forward rapidly on that. secondly putin has really targeted our institutions. he's questioned them the values that we embrace. he literally has tried to bring
4:16 am
into question what our institutions nato eu are, in fact, vigilant. we have to show strength that we're resolute. not just only talk the talk but also walk the walk in this case. and literally undertake steps that show our strength and that these institutions matter. and then also let me just add. economic assistance to ukraine also matters. you know what's straking to me? i hear many russians who are interested in seeing a stabilized secure ukraine and their argument is don't pay attention to everything russia is doing. speed ahead. give the defense assistance to ukraine and also ensure that it becomes economically stable. those are some of the kinds of things we can, in fact be doing. >> paula dobriansky thank you for being on the show this morning. still ahead on "morning joe," the chairman of the arm

morning papers. we'll start with buzzfeed. isis issued a series of threats against twitter due to the company's frequent blocking of their social media accounts. online image shared by isis supporters features a picture of twitter co-founder with crosshairs super imposed on his face and a warning that reads, your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you. spokesperson for twitter told nbc they are investigating the voracity of the threats with law enforcement officials. >> all right. "seattle times" marshawn lynch opened up to the turkish media over the weekend. star player was overseas as part of the tour for american football without barrier where's he gave a lengthy tv interview and a controversial play where many believe the running back should have gotten the ball. >> i would be a liar if i didn't tell you that i was expecting the ball. >> lynch went on to echo previously stated sentiment and he had no with the play called
4:22 am
but mentioned he would have been in the spotlight had things gone differently. >> winter conditions across the country will not relent as the northeast and midwest continue to dig out. as march rang in nearly two thirds of the country was covered with snow. and national weather services says february will go on record as one of the coldest months in history with boston closing in on its snowiest year ever. joining us from beantown -- >> why did you do this to her? >> i'm sorry. she's so cute. >> why are you so mean to dylan dreyer? >> can't you send her to palm beach to give us the weather there? >> you still look so good. how do you do that? sgluts we just hot pink. i'm going with color at this point. sheer hot pink. we're back in boston. do you know how many snowflakes it takes a rack up 103.9 ichlknches of snow?
4:23 am
it's unbelievable. but it is also a little bit dangerous, of course. that weight of the snow is actually responsible for this roof collapse in massachusetts. it happened during a youth hockey practice. luckily no one was injured. it was still a scary reminder of how much snow there is. it wasn't a big storm over the weekend but three to six inches and made a mess of the roads. in raleigh, 25-vehicle pile-up. it certainly was a mess this weekend. where i'm standing right now it doesn't look all that snowy here but this is actually the route of the st. patrick's day parade in southy and there is a good possibility that either the route will be changed or the parade itself is in jeopardy. nobody happy about that considering the parade is only 13 days away. but when you have this much snow not only is there no room for a parade but there's no room for people to watch the parade. it's just too much. >> thank you so much for being on. good luck. talk to you soon.

such a thing as a sure thing in business? some say buy gold. others say buy soybeans. i say, buy comcast business internet. unlike internet providers that slow down when traffic picks up, you get speed you can rely on. it's a safe bet. like a gold-plated soybean. reliably fast internet starts at $69.95 a month. comcast business. built for business. senior correspondent for let's bring in right now in a recent column ari writes this because netanyahu has worked gaines rather than with the american administration, the american administration has tilted towards tehran and against jerusalem. israel rather than iran has been
4:28 am
isolated. the reason netanyahu is about to give a brilliant desperate teach to the u.s. congress is he knows he lost the game. when the she quite super power, a nuclear threshold state, is being courted by the american president, the iranian threat is more clear, present, and bloodcurdling than ever. now the israel faces a new exist existiential threat, however to which neither the israeli public nor the prime minister is paying much attention. has benjamin netanyahu made a bad situation much more dangerous for israel? >> let me say where benjamin netanyahu is right. he's totally right in analyzing the danger of the iranian nuclear project. i'm not a support of mr. netanyahu and don't share his ideology. i think he's very tall lnted individual and very impressive statesman in understanding the great threat posed by iran. i think that he's also right in the sense of there is an
4:29 am
opportunity to deal with iran without military strikes because the collapse of oil prices and the weakness of the iranian economy actually give us a great opportunity and if america will lead struggle -- political economic struggle with iran like you do to the russians i think the iranians can be stopped. i think netanyahu is wrong -- >> you're blaming benjamin netanyahu for washington tilting towards tehran instead of jerusalem. >> absolutely. >> that's december stating. >> now i'll tell you where i think mr. netanyahu is wrong. he's wrong because he made iran an israel issue. to a larger ebbsxtent, he made it into a benjamin netanyahu issue. nuclear iran is a challenge to our civilization. if iran will go nuclear the middle east will go nuclear and life will change not the only tel aviv but in washington. this should be understood. sadly, sadly mr. netanyahu narrowed it to an israeli issue.
4:30 am
justified issue but i think we should be all united regarding this. this is not an issue for republicans or democrats, american or europe or israelis. iran will really -- if it goes nuclear, 21th century will be about nuclear terror and nuclear horror. if iran will go nuclear the next 9/11s will be nonconventional nuclear echbts. we have to deal with this. it's time to grow up. it's too serious. there's been too much partisanship, too much people who do not address this issue. this is the most important issue facing today the international community and the international community largely failed in dealing with it. i think that we should listen to netanyahu on the threat but we should approach a different way of dealing with it looking for partnership and wider coalitions rather than making it a narrow issue. >> mark halperin? >> is it military option off the table as far as you're concerned? >> look i was a proud alarmist
4:31 am
for the last ten decades. i was never a uranium hawk. i never thought a military strike was a good idea. i think the great success we saw when american-israeli corporation under president obama and mr. netanyahu in 2011-2012. the comp in additionbination of harsh sanctions and threat to use options actually changed iran brought about. i think this type dt make approach is the right approach today. >> how israel respond if a deal is struck and how all should rayle israel respond if a deal is struck? >> the reason i think there is something somewhat desperate about netanyahu's speech you talked about the churchillian element. i think there is a fear here that mr. netanyahu saw himself as a churchill who will stop the
4:32 am
evil power. his mood from being the churchill of the 1940s to trying to be the churchill of the 1930s. rerealizes the game is pretty much lost. now it's all in the hands of other powers. therefore, he's making a great grand gesture, a grand theatrical act, so in history he will be remembered as the guy who warned us all. i think that what we will see tomorrow in congress ask a last desperate run of a prime minister, a leader who saw the challenge but actually failed in dealing with it and he is going to make a great, great gesture that will be remembered in a decade or two. well, he will be proven right because if god forbid we will not be assertive regarding iran netanyahu prophecy will come true and in ten year's time they will ask where would we all have been at this time and turn to netanyahu's speech and say, okay he was like the churchill of 1936.
4:33 am
this is what this speech is about about. >> david ignatius. >> i want to ask you not about 20 years from now but two weeks when you have the israeli elections. what's your feeling about how israelis are going to respond at a gut level to what netanyahu says tomorrow? are they going to be proud? are they going to be embarrassed? are they going to be worried? how is this going to play? benjamin netanyahu is facing serious trouble. the israeli elections are el aly open for the first thyme there's a real challenge to his leadership. there's a battle like in american elections over the agenda agenda. the opposition goes for internal issuesy netanyahu is weak. strength is foreign issues. still perceived as mr. security and mr. international. the speech will help him. israelis will be proud. he is a leader that stands up to the world and says the truth and it is true because israel is
4:34 am
existentially threatened. i'm not sure this is enough to xem netanyahu at home because there is -- very strong forces working and for him and this i think is the point of the speech. i think the one of the reasons he came to washington now because he realizes that there is a chance there is a risk that it's his last speech. he might not again. he might win but it's the kind of 50/50 percent situation. everything is open in israel. the speech will help him a bit but it's not whether it's enough for him to carry the elections. >> really do appreciate it. >> thank you. coming up next the sharp learning curve from potential gop presidential candidates when it comes to education and politics. campbell brown joins us with her compelling new column along with msnbc's kasie hunt who is reporting all weekend from cpac.

woman: it's been a journey to get where i am. and i didn't get here alone. there were people who listened along the way. people who gave me options. kept me on track. and through it all my retirement never got left behind. so today, i'm prepared for anything we may want tomorrow to be. every someday needs a plan. let's talk about your old 401(k) today.
4:37 am
80% of the poor in africa are rural farmers. 96% of them are doing rain-fed agriculture. they're all competing with each other; they're all making very low margins making enough to survive but not enough to get out of poverty. so kickstart designs low cost irrigation pumps enabling them to grow high value crops throughout the year so you can make a lot of money. it's all very well to have a whole lot of small innovations but unless we can scale it up enough to where we are talking about millions of farmers, we're not going to solve their biggest challenge. this is precisely where the kind of finance that citi is giving us is enabling us to scale up on a much more rapid pace. when we talk to the farmers and ask them what's the most important thing. first of all they say we can feed our families. secondly, we can send our children to school. it's really that first step that allows them to get out of poverty and most importantly have money left over to plan for the future they want.

i'm in federal court right now suing arne duncan to make it clear we need to remove common core from every classroom in america. we've seen under president obama the federal government get more involved, more expensive, more expansive, more intrusive. it must stop. it must stop here. we must repeal common core. >> my concern now as we begun to try to do implement tags it's not only the heavy foot of the federal government coming in but it's not doing what we need to have done in new jersey. we need to have local control, parents, teachers in those class m radios. they are the ones that should be helping us at the state level set the standards. >> two possible candidates for
4:39 am
2016 criticizing common core during their appearances last week at cpac. campbell brown writes in the "washington post" that political attack on common core are driven by pandering. and campbell joins us now along with msnbc local correspondent kasie hunt. mark halperin is still with us. >> who are you talking about? >> a number of them. bobby jindal is among the worst in how he's talked about the issue. >> in what way? >> i wrote this op-ed while i was sitting on my sofa watching you guy on tv two weeks ago. bobby jindal was on the show and you asked him, joe, why he had changed his position and flip-flopped on common core. and he said you know it started off as a good idea but then the federal government got involved and they attached monday my to common core to incentivize states who adopted. that's when it became are a problem. that's a lie. >> what? >> this happened in 2009. in the summer of 2009 the department of education with great fanfare announced that
4:40 am
they would be giving money to states that adopted common core to incentivize pem this bobby jindal in 2013 i was on stage with him innen education conference and he was singing the praises of common core. you would have thought he had invented common core. he was saying that this is the best thing for children in louisiana. >> what? >> a state that ranks 49th out of 50th in education. >> you're from louisiana. >> yes. which is why i care deeply about it. i'm taking it a little further. >> a little personal. >> but it was, you know either he was a i sleep at the wheel for four years and failed to know this that this federal government was involved. >> was -- didn't go and be a volunteer-based education set-up to again, something that could be compelled by the federal government? >> it's voluntary. it's voluntary. but the problem, according to the republicans who are opposed to it is that the federal government offered money to
4:41 am
incentivize incentivize. he only developed this problem. chris christie same thing. only developed this problem just in the last month or so. >> i'm confused. why would people run for president, the republican party, flim flop on this issue. >> why ever would they flip-flop? it's a base litmus test. especially in places like iowa and potentially south care. >> why is that? what do you hear out there? >> well, you know you were at cpac also and it's all about getting the government out of control of education. it has sort of -- when you listen to someone like bobby jindal talk about common core they cast it as this huge federal mandate that it actually really isn't. if you actually dig down and look at the policy. he's not the only one. mike huckabee has come out and said he's against common core. if you listen to how jeb bush talked about it he dropped common core out of his -- the words out of there. >> let's do that actually. former florida governor jeb bush stood by his support for common core but offered proposed changes to the anybodyive.
4:42 am
take nish tive. >> what we say quite clearly in the authorization of the k-12 law, malt have been on the floor in the house of representatives today is to say the federal government has no role in the creation of standards either directly or indirectly. the federal government has no role in the creation of curriculum and content. the federal government should have no access to student id or student information. that the role of the federal government if there's any is to provide incentives for more school choice. take the title i money and idea money and states who want to innovate with their own program, give them the money to let them create their own programs. that is a better approach. >> mark halperin? >> last four presidents have looked for a bigger role for education from the federal level. is there a winning message for either party to say washington has a bigger role or is that a losing argument? >> i think there's confusion here. i don't think jeb bush is arguing that the federal government should have a bigger role. i mean much of the opposition
4:43 am
to common core is based on absolute falsehoods. i mean common core is not a federally mandated curriculum which i have heard so many politicians say. all common core is, and i think you have b to clear about this is it describes what a kid should know at the end of each grade. so that we have hopefully some consistency from state to state over what fourth grade looks like or what fifth grade looks like. there's so much misinformation around this and it's being used as political. >> if you could come back and bring a little more energy and conviction because i, you know, we try and keep it going here on the show. sometimes i come on and -- when you're there i just fall asleep. you know i felt like you don't have a focus. >> you are with me on this. nothing is more important. >> i love what you do. >> -- children and the future of this country and when they make a mockery of annish how as critical of this by playing
4:44 am
games with it it's very upsetting. >> you have a voice here for sure. kasie hunt, you guys were all at cpac. how was joe received? >> oh, shut up. how did cpac go? i was received well, by the way. don't set her up. >> very well. >> saying nice things about me. who were the winners, who were the losers? >> everyone is always a winner. no, i think scott walker came out stronger than he went in. i think jeb bush came out stronger than he went out despite the fact all of the discussion about how the crowd doesn't for him. i think they stepped up and showed that one, he had the potential to be formidable on the debate stage and, two, his people did a good job of making sure that it didn't turn into an embarrassing situation by bringing their supporters? >> a lot of people were complaining about him shipping supporters in. that's politics. >> that happened in hillary clinton. >> that's driving people to the polls. that's what you want. i wasn't shocked and stunned and deeply saddened by that. oh, this is horrible. really? a guy organizes, what an idea.
4:45 am
we haven't done that in a couple of years. who were the losers? >> oh, the losers. i think the people that sort of fell flat on the stage, maybe chris christie probably a loser. the contrast of where he was at that event a year ago and where he was this time just kind of -- >> fiorina? >> she is playing a role of a attack dog against hillary clinton which is unique because there's more of a dozen potential candidates. there's only one who is a woman. if they know they're going up against hillary clinton in the fall that's a unique role for her to be able to play. >> i think it's interesting p she's more seasoned this time around for sure. her message is very focused. >> marco rubio, we've heard no space for jeb and marco. how did marco do? >> that performance from the people i talked to he ent pred himself in a very solid way. i don't know that it was extraordinarily flashy but he seems to have come out of their building this slow sort of
4:46 am
credibility that they seem to be going for, especially on foreign policy. they want him to stand up and be an gresive voice on that. >> thank you. campbell brown, thank you, as well. >> good to see you. senator john mccain is here onset in just a few homes. first, it's the "morning joe" football frenzy with roger bennett. we'll be right back. most of the products we all buy are transported on container ships. before a truck delivers it to your store, a container ship delivered it to that truck. here in san diego, we're building the first one ever to run on natural gas. ships this big running this clean will be much better for the environment. we're proud to be a part of that.

5:02 am
that -- that kerry meets with lavrov constantly and -- how could you do this? >> while they go into ukraine, while they violate a treaty we promise them give us your nuclear weapons we promise to protect the borders of your country, and it seems it's one red line crossed, another red line crossed, another red line crossed. >> and our european friends, the chancellor of germany and president of france negotiate an agreement, while it's being violated. >> why is that? >> in the case of europeans, it's obviously a sentiment reminiscent of the 1930s, and their deep pendency on russian energy. as you know -- >> what do we do? >> well, first of all increase the sanctions dramatically. we start treating this guy for what she, a pariah. the magnetsky act we should be imposing quotas on individuals
5:03 am
as well as companies and corporations. there's no doubt that his economy is in the tank with the price of oil being what it is. increase the pressure and let's talk about what he is. my hero ronald reagan used to tell -- he used to call him what they were. >> what is he? >> i think he is a megalomaniac intent on restoring the old russian empire. >> narcissist? >> that's why he believes that ukraine is part of russia the baltics he's putting pressure on moldova. he's going as far as he thinks he can and there's this view because his economy is bad that will restrain him. history shows a lot of dictators when the economy is bad act more aggressively. >> so if someone is a megalomaniac they usually don't care about things normal people would care about, like incredible sanctions that are crippling the economy and hurting the people of the country? >> i think he probably cares to
5:04 am
some degree. he's supposed to be the wealthiest man in the world, but i don't think he cares so much it's going to deter him and actually if he draws back now with his economic difficulties, neighbor would cause him more domestic difficulty. >> is there anyone around him to advise him, from everything you know, any alagarts or just a man feared -- he's killed journalists, with impunity. he's imprisoned opponents. now we're seeing people gunned down in front of the kremlin? is there anybody there that can put -- that he listens to? >> i don't think so. put yourself in his place. he's been able to dismember ukraine, been able to take the crimea. he's been able to -- >> just put in the back there. >> he's been able to -- been able to get almost everything that he wanted with no penalty to be paid. for it. >> right. >> so -- so far he's doing very well. look at it from his viewpoint. does anybody remember shootdown
5:05 am
of the malaysian airliner? >> yeah. >> and i'm sad to say a month from now will anybody be talking about the assassination of boris nemtsov? >> when we delay, we take too long and make a small half step. why don't we -- we betrayed poland, in 2009. why don't we put more forces in poland and let him know every time -- >> in the baltics. >> and in the bought icaltics. in poland in the baltics, if you're watching at home, nobody here is talking about going to war. we have the legal right under international law to move as many troops from germany into poland and the baltic was "want. why don't we do that and let him know, okay. you want to do this to flex your muscles at home we're going to do something that will embarrass you equally at home. >> well, we should and i don't see any indication this administration might do it. by the way, next mayor mariopal.
5:06 am
he'll go there, establishing a land bridge all the way to crimea and control of eastern ukraine at industry of ukraine, and by the way, the economy of the ukraine is about to collapse. it isn't just militarily. >> it's a mess. talk about benjamin netanyahu coming tomorrow. >> tomorrow morning israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will address congress. the prime minister arrived last night in washington and advisors say the speech will not disrespect president obama but warn lawmakers about troubling concessions that may be part of the nuclear talks with iran. now secretary of state john kerry will be meeting with iran's foreign minister in geneva instead of attending the speech. this morning he defended israel before the u.n. human rights council, earlier this morning we had video of that happening. >> are you going to be at the speech tomorrow? >> oh, yeah. of course. >> why?
5:07 am
>> well i have a great respect and admiration for bebe. >> should all members of congress there be? >> that's really not the question. >> i think that's up to them but i think the reason why this has been ratcheted up to such a high degree is not so much that some protocol was violated. it's that they don't want bebe to tell the american people that this is a bad deal. joe, this is a lousy deal. henry kissinger said the object used to be to eliminate iran's ability to develop a nuclear weapon. now it's to delay it and iaea as we speak continues to say that sirn not cooperating. >> what i don't understand is you have middle eastern countries, like the united arab emirates developing nuclear power. >> yes. >> and they're developing nuclear power that can never ever be transformed into weapons. ever. there is a way if this is about power, well just do what the uae is doing right now.
5:08 am
>> they don't want to do that of course not. >> amend they are desperate. part of this delusion that somehow you'll get a nuclear agreement and then we have a large alliance with iran that will bring about peace in the middle east. meanwhile, they're in the march in -- >> by the way, the middle east don't want it sunni states don't want it. fear it more than we do. >> and one of the foreign countries in munich said we believe it's far better to be an enemy of the united states than a friend. believe me they will go nuclear, saudis first, if this kind of agreement is made. >> senator mccain, with all due respect, though there's a lot of ways to communicate with the american people if you're benjamin netanyahu. so i think the question is should speaker boehner, your colleague, have issued this what appears to be very divisive invitation that is causing political problems here and also days before an election in israel? >> it won't be the first time that an israeli lead hear come as you know. >> i know that. >> prior to election.
5:09 am
second of all, shouldn't the leaders of congress invite whoever they want to speak to congress? >> is there a better way -- >> this is symptomatic of the terrible relationship developed between congress and, republicans in congress and the president. and when the president says i got a pen and i've got a phone. when president says i'm speaking for the two-thirds that didn't vote, i mean in your face. this is symptomatic, mika. i have never seen relations between the executive branch and congress, between a president and congress as there is today, and i am not saying that republicans did everything right. okay? >> you know john boehner my position has been john boehner can invite who john boehner wants to invite but they should have picked up the phone. right? called the white house, said listen, were you know you're going to disagree but we're inviting netanyahu. >> and john boehner should have picked up the phone when he declared amnesty, executive order on immigration. should have picked up the phone after the election -- >> what would you have done?
5:10 am
picked up the phone and called the commander in chief and said hey, benjamin netanyahu's coming over? >> of course. >> you would have. >> i would have but, again, when bill clinton lost in the second term election he called republicans over. when george w. bush lost in the second term election he called the democrats over and what did this president say? i'm speaking for the two-thirds that didn't vote. >> and now is saying he's going to veto any input, anything that would give congress input in the iran negotiations. one veto threat after another. >> we need to have radification of congress. that is a key item. >> yes, we do. >> how much faith do you have in john kerry's judgment and impulses as he negotiates with iran? they'll only do a good deal in the u.s. and israel's interest? >> already given away the store and desperate for an agreement. he's failed on the israeli/palestinian peace process, on the syria issue. and he is -- >> why do you think he's
5:11 am
desperate for a deal? >> oh, i thy theyhe accomplished nothing except mileage at secretary of state. tell me one accomplishment he's made? they are desperate. because of this delusion joe, about -- they'll all work together. iran and the u.s. will then be a force for good in the middle east. this is what scared the hell out of these sunni nations throughout the middle east. >> okay. i want to -- can i do isis? i think i got an answer out of him. >> you did. >> you did. >> very kind. >> which was what? >> about both sides being divisive. a large-scale operation, though i think we can maybe -- >> wait wait wait. >> right now the shutdown of the government is something we shouldn't -- the department of homeland security is something we shouldn't do. we got a court case. we've got a court case i think we can win. >> large-scale operation is under way to recapture saddam hussein's hometown from the islamic state militants in iraq. battle unfolding in tikrit
5:12 am
about 80 miles north of baghdad. iraqi security forces helped by shiite and sunni fighters as well as iraqi fighter jets. isis seized control of those, tikrit last summer by the way. over in syria isis released 19 christians it kidnapped last week. there are about 200 still being held hostage. >> are we -- >> you know who's doing the fighting? shia militia. backed and trained by iran. same people we fought against during the surge. i'm not making that up. >> oh, god. >> are we starting to see an uptick on -- on perhaps a response to isis? see any reason to be hopeful? >> i don't see a strat yi yetegy yet. they've not articulate add strategy. >> what the strategy is? >> they don't. just say degrade and defeat. how do you do that? they obviously have no answer. >> no specifics before the armed services committee? >> no. because they don't have any.
5:13 am
>> see anyone in the committee a big strategic thinker? >> general allen, but objected his advice. his advice aircraft exclusion, buffer zone and obviously rejected that. by the way, again, joe, why can't we give the ukrainians weapons to defend themselves? it almost makes me cry. >> what is the white house saying? >> they just -- >> my brother -- >> they just say, it will provoke vladimir putin. to do what? more? >> you said i guess last week you were embarrassed to be an american. pretty strong language. >> and i'm, ashamed of our country, our president and myself, because i haven't done enough to convince the american people to force this administration to give weapons to people that are being slaughtered. did you see the -- the story in the "wall street journal" where we're not even giving them intelligence information? >> we'relyly giving satellite, 24 hours. >> what's prevents us?
5:14 am
>> a and not giving clear pictures what's going on. >> in russia refused to where the arms and equipment is coming from. a quick commercial. your dad testified before the senate armed services committee and as always outstanding. >> thank you very much. i would tend to agree with you there. >> dr. brzezinski they forget he was -- the cold war hawk. talking about russia he gets pretty tough. >> absolutely. >> who, though is out there? >> thank you. >> we talked to one foreign policy expert after another. they talk about a white house in disarray and i'm not talking about, by the way, at home. i'm not talking about republicans. somebody that worked in republican administrations, can they tell me that barack obama doesn't have a foreign policy coherent -- i discount them, because they're on my side. >> uh-huh. >> but i'm hearing from democrats. i'm hearing it from liberals and most importantly, you brought this up. this weekend i talked to several leaders from arab countries. they talk about no focus.
5:15 am
they talk about wanting to do more, but they're afraid if they step in the united states won't be there for them. >> last week with the leader of a middle eastern country he said i've been here in the united states. i'm going back and i'm telling the other arab countries we have to develop our own plans. we cannot depend on the united states. that's pretty rough. pretty tough. >> and everybody at this table, just so you know it's not the republicans saying this. everybody at this table, and if you haven't, let me know we've all heard the same thing, and not just this year. i've been hearing the same thing since 2010. >> joe, this is -- what seems to happen -- >> this is a long-returning problem and we're going to pay for this for a long time to come. >> what seems to happen is good recommendations go up to a certain point nan is the tight circle around the president and then they disappear. classic example, arms for ukraine. the director of national intelligence last week before our committee said i support it. emotionally, and so it gets
5:16 am
there and then it stops. >> we need to talk about the issues surrounding that controversy. more on this show. >> it's important -- >> arms for ukraine. >> senator mccain, you and i don't always agree on foreign policy. sort of not from separate wings, but we've disagreed. >> you're generally sometimes wrong. >> generally sometimes right. >> sometimes you're a bit overly aggressive, but i think the fact this is probably the most we've agreed on one show. i think the fact that we're in such agreement shows that washington is in agreement that this is a white house that is adrift and like you've said. desperate to make deals when there's no a framework behind those deals. it makes sense for america, or that makes sense for their allies. >> more than adrift. delusional if they think there will be a grand alliance between the united states and iran. that is not the iranian ambitions, and that's what i worry about as much as anything
5:17 am
else. >> when you talk about agreeing sometimes it's nice but i like the fact that you often disagree with us and still come on our show. that's a man. >> we appreciate that. >> thank you very much. >> it's my pleasure. >> we really appreciate it. and that halpin guy inl brynn that halperin guy. and still ahead, crossing paths with vladimir putin, and a life or death moment in the skies. one skydiver loses consciousness as he free falls 9,000 feet above land. deep right here on "morning joe." you can call me shallow... but, i have a wandering eye. i mean, come on. national gives me the control to choose any car in the aisle i want. i could choose you... or i could choose her if i like her more. and i do.

meant of course to be a protest against the war in
5:30 am
ukraine. would have been one of the leaders, nemtsov, at the front. one of the ironies his face here is now everywhere as the crowd approaches the bridge and the point where he was killed. [ chanting ] overlooking the scene, the walls of the cremekremlin where many believe the orders to kill him may have come. >> honoring the life of boris nemtsov. amazing murder. >> whether this is much ado about nothing as vladimir putin continues to rule imimpunity. >> i hope the crowds grow. russian president adviser bore it nemtsov gunned down friday. among them hedge fund manager
5:31 am
and arrange bill brould erwder, a known critic of president putin. he release add estimate in the wake of nemtsov's death reading in part like this russia entered a new and dark phase in its slide towards totalitarian dictatorship with the murder of bourse nemtsov. previously the putin regime relied on imprisonment and exile to silence positions. now they have started murdering them. i'm sure this won't be the last. and mr. browder joins us now from london. thank you very much for joining us sir. i wonder how much, how aware you were of what mr. nemtsov was planning to do before he was murdered? because it appears he had plans to do more in opposition to putin and to speak out with crowds. >> he had a couple big plans going. one of them which he was going to disclose facts and evidence about how russia had officially sent troops into ukraine. and this is something that putin has been denying. he's been saying there's no
5:32 am
russian troops in ukraine. and as a result of the confusion about this, the west has not been unified on sanctions. so this expose was damaging for poopt putin. wie he was also organizing protests at time when the economy is going into a free fall. putin was worried about all the people coming out on to the streets. putin had a real reason to be afraid of boris nemtsov and now you see what happened. >> mr. browder, you say we're entering a new, dark phase and could turn into a totalitarian dictatorship, even stalin had show trials. again, the audacity of this gunning down an opponent in front of the kremlin is just stunning. >> it truly is. i mean, you know, this was a, a professional security service organized execution within feet
5:33 am
of the kremlin, and what i find most amazing is that today they're saying that the security cameras didn't work. and so -- i mean the cover-up begins, and guess who's doing the investigation? it's one of the prime suspects. vladimir putin said he's in charge of the investigation. >> yeah. >> all right. so a lot of people are hesitant to make a connection here. i just want to know if you think that because of the information he was going to be revealing about ukraine and the planned protests, do you think that's why he was killed? >> well i think he was killed for two reasons. one is that he was an effective opposition politician. and, two, putin likes to rule by symbolism. he likes to take out the biggest guy in a certain class of people and destroy them. and that's what he did. if you remember about a decade ago he took out the biggest alagark, put him in jail. after that they became putin's
5:34 am
business partners. took out poatskaya, killed her and all of a sudden journalists stopped writing. the main purpose, one, get rifd nemtsov and two to absolutely send a message of terror to anybody who opposes putin which is, that you're next. >> all right. bill browder, thank you very much. i remember the murder of anna poll politskaya well. >> so brazen. actually sends out an even more intimidateing mevg,ssage that he doesn't care if the world sees what happens to people who oppose him. >> and sara eisen from the cnbc stock exchange and here on the set, karen feinerman. karen, thanks for being on. start with warren buffett. >> yep. >> who looks like he's setting
5:35 am
the stage for something here. the chairman and kreceo of berkshire hathaway he wrote a possible successor and listed one factor that should not be considered. what is that factor sara eisen? >> gender. you'll be happy to know. he described it as somewhat the next berkshire ceo should be someone with character, shun who is "all-in for the company and not for himself" and clarified using the pronoun himself doesn't necessarily mean it should be decided on gender. of course, warren buffett is 84 years old. this is the looming question of who's going to succeed him and buffett did say he and the board have chose an ceo that in many ways he says is doing a better job than she. he didn't name names. so still keeps everybody guessing, but two names named. two top lieutenants in charlie munger, the vice chairman's letter. a widely anticipated report from warren buffett to get on his thinking but yes, the successor
5:36 am
issue still hangs over. >> karen, not far from the opening bell on wall street. markets closed dourch on friday. that did not stop february from locking in strong numbers for the month. what are investors hoping to see for march? >> an up market obviously bu extrapolate what just happened. a lot of optimism in the market and feeding on itself people are feeling comfortable. market's up? i can step in. not going down. counter intuitive. >> you want to buy low. >> people feel more comfortable buying when they're more expressive. >> i knew in 2008 things would turn bad in six months when a good friend said, you know joe, we should really get into real estate. at that point i said this is the seventh sign. >> this one's for joe karen and sara. samsung hoping its latest phone line will turn the tide in the battle for cell phone supremacy. called the galaxy s-6 and s-6

5:38 am
>> so strong. >> it does. i mean they had such great reception on the apple 6 and the 6-plus. >> was that a surprise? how great that reception was? >> it actually was. people thought, well it's always really a lot of excitement whenever they introduce a new product, but in fact it exceeded i think some of wall street's highest expectations. i think the wireless charging thing is. >> that could be big. >> is big. >> that could be big. karen and sara thank you both very much. up next brooke shields is going to join us for a big no your value announcement. we'll be right back. ♪ hi, tom. hey, how's the college visit? you remembered.
