tv Andrea Mitchell Reports MSNBC March 2, 2015 9:00am-10:01am PST
the president of the united states overreaching and so the frustration in the country represented through the frustration of our members, is -- has people scared to death, that the president is running the country right off the cliff. ♪ >> good day, i'm andrea mitchell in washington. israel's embattled prime minister netanyahu has given a combative speech to the friendliest audience he'll find anywhere embattled at home and war of words with the obama white house, he began his washington tour by trying to smooth over differences about tomorrow's controversial speech to congress. >> last thing that i would want is for israel to become a part of an issue and i regret some
people misperceived my visit here this week as doing that. israel has always been a bipartisan issue and always should remain a bipartisan issue. i'm joined by senator bernie sanders, one of 30 lawmakers who will be boycotting netanyahu's speech to congress tomorrow. you're a democrat senator -- independent, you she say. >> independent. >> you caucus with the democrats and number of democrats are also boycotting boycotting. tell me why you decided not to attend. >> despite the prime minister's assertions obviously was taking place is extremely partisan and in fact unprecedented. the speaker of the house, john boehner, invited mr. netanyahu and forgot to consult with the president of the united states who leads our nation in terms of foreign policy. and i think that's wrong and i think it's a very dangerous precedent. second of all, andrea no great
secret that mr. netanyahu is in a tough re-election race in israel. that election is in two weeks and i do not want to see the congress of the united states being used as a prop or photo-op opportunity, not for him or any other leader around the world who is running for re-election. >> have you felt any pressure because of your decision not to attend? >> no. in my state i've gotten calls in support of my decision. i've gotten calls in opposition but no real pressure. >> at the same time netanyahu as he explained it to apec today feels there is a difference between security and the united states, which is a matter of national security for the most powerful nation in the world and security in israel against an iranian threat which he says is a matter of survivor. for them it is existential. >> i think there is no difference of opinion here in the united states congress certainly not with me.
is iran cannot get a nuclear weapon, period. that's what the president has said over and over again. but i'll tell you what else i think, andrea after over a decade of war in iraq and decade of war in afghanistan, maybe, maybe we should try to do everything we can to prevent a war with iran. maybe we should negotiate along with china and russia and u.k. and france and germany, try to negotiate an agreement with iran that prevents them from getting a nuclear weapon without unleashing all of the forces of war. that's what the president and these other countries are trying to do. what the president has said very clearly, if these negotiations fail, there are alternatives. but let's give negotiations all of the opportunity and chance they can to succeed. and that's my view and i think that's the president's view. >> well that said secretary kerry some would say is pushing
very hard for a deal and the latest details that have emerged from the talks are that iran would have ten years of a freeze and then would be able to break out, develop nuclear power, enrich again, and could arguably after another five years really break out. is that enough of a freeze to guarantee the security of israel? >> the answer is that i -- what is leaked out may be one thing but the president has been very clear and you're dealing with five other countries around the world, very clear that iran will not get a nuclear weapon. i'll tell you what gets me a little bit nervous and fearful, is you got some people in congress who do not perhaps fully understand the consequences of the war in iraq the war in afghanistan, where we are today, the disasters that those wars have caused and maybe not afraid or concerned about a war with iran. i think we do everything that we
can to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. we work with leading countries around the world and if that does not succeed, we look at our options but you have got to go as far as you can to try to make that succeed. >> i want you to play a little bit of samantha power, the u.n. ambassador spoke to apec today. >> as a few of you may have heard, the prime minister of israel is in town. [ applause ] rumor has it that he may be giving a couple of speeches. you may also have heard -- you may also have heard lately of tension in the relationship between the united states and israel. we believe firmly that israel's security and the u.s./israel partnership transcends politics and it always will.
[ applause ] >> there's clearly though a lot of tension between this president and this prime minister. is there any way to repair that now or is it just the reality that the united states and israel have to deal with for the rest of this term? >> i think israel and the united states have had a longstanding very strong level of bipartisan support. i think that that will continue. and i thnk a year from now people may not quite remember this. so i think the relationship is solid. but again, i think it is extremely unfortunate that mr. boehner, speaker boehner, has plitized this issue by inviting the prime minister here without consulting the president of the united states. >> does apec have too much political clout in this foreign policy, what should be a foreign policy debate and do you think any of your colleagues have been pressured from states perhaps
where there is more pressure than there is in vermont? >> you'll have to ask my colleagues. i don't know. look when we deal with iran and when we deal with the middle east, we are dealing with incredibly volatile and complicated issues. and as i said a moment ago, i think the war in iraq was probably the worst foreign policy blunder in the modern history of america. i think we have got to be very very cautious. i think we have got to work with our allies in the region and do everything that we can to bring peace into that very troubled area. >> bernie sanders, the independent senator from vermont, thank you very much sir. >> thank you. >> thanks for being with us. for more on this very important visit of netanyahu, i'm joined by ann gearan, dip plo mattic consultant for "washington post." you've been reporting on the
election and also investigations into netanyahu spending and ethics questions about his wife. he brought sara with him on this trip and gave quite a shout-out to her at apec. she doesn't usually travel on these visits. >> to the point of whether or not his own political future and election in two weeks enter into this debate, he sort of referenced that today by saying that she had come and that her grace under pressure was something that he admired. that pressure is considerable. there are a couple of investigations going on in israel into her household spending at the same time as netanyahu faces a tougher than expected re-election. he called these elections earlier and wouldn't have done that if he didn't think he could win. but a number of circumstances changed and his re-election is tighter than expected.
he is still very much favored to be the only person who could put together a government coming out of those elections. he is likely to remain on the stage. he is likely to remain a thorn in president obama's side. but he's got a bit of political difficulty between now and then. >> and david, how has the white house handled this? this is the first time neither the president or vice president or secretary of state will be addressing aipac since president obama was elected. they are sending the national security adviser later tonight but she was the most outspoke be and critical of netanyahu. let me play that than come to you for reaction. >> the relationship between israel as a country and the united states as a country has always been bipartisan. and we've been fortunate, the politics have not been injected into that relationship. what happened over the last several weeks by virtue of the
invitation issued -- >> by speaker of the house. and acceptance of it by prime minister netanyahu on two weeks in advance of his election on both sides there has now been injected a degree of partisanship, which is not only unfortunate but it's destructive of the fabric of the relationship. >> she chose her words very carefully, destructive of the fabric of the relationship. david? >> well i think the reality is the relationship is poisonous, despite what senator sanders says it's going to stay poisonous but benjamin netanyahu and the president realize it's gotten so bad that they got to walk it back. netanyahu's speech was an everything is fine speech the president has sent samantha power first, everything is fine. i suspect susan rice will say everything is fine. but underneath it all, i think
everybody needs to know that for next two years because of this and also because of the last six years, this relationship is going to stay dysfunctional at a personal level until president obama is out of power or netanyahu is out of power. >> what is the consequence of that? >> a lot of awkward meetings. i don't think the united states will back away from israel but the administration will certainly push forward with this iran initiative. one way you can look at this the prime minister's regularly talking about iran as a threat to israel. right now netanyahu is aan essential threat to barack obama's only big foreign policy legacy that's out there. he's trying to kill the one thing that obama has that might redeem a weak foreign policy over the course of the next couple of years. they take that personally at 1600 pennsylvania avenue and i don't expect to see anything lightening up any time soon. >> and there's been argument by
nearly 200 former military officials and intelligence officials in israel as netanyahu was flying here saying that they think he has actually increased the chance of a deal that they are working harder on the deal. i'm not sure they could work any harder than they have been though on this deal with iran because of their -- of israel's objections to it. >> he is speaking to the audience he most needs, which is congress. he has essentially written off a good relationship with obama and knows that he can't directly influence the outcome of the negotiations. what he can influence and what he's hoping to influence tomorrow is how congress votes on sanctions and how much difficulty congress gives the white house and implementing any deal that could be struck and making a whole lot of noise about what in his view the deal actually does. in his view is really not giving secure enough firm
enough long enough guarantee against a nuclear weapon in iran. he's not going to be dissuaded by the susan powers or susan rices of the world saying don't worry, iran never should go nuke clear. his view is unless there is a iron clad guarantee that we have now that that isn't going to happen, then any deal in his view is a bad one. >> there are two miscalculations, if the deal is weak, it will speak for itself and he's not helping things by turning this into a partisan debate. but secondly the president doesn't expect to have much cooperation from congress going forward as it is. he was expecting, i'm going to do a deal and phase in sanctions relief. i'll do the sanctions relief that i can do over the next couple of years and frankly, i think he was expecting to leave the long-term sanctions relief which requires congress to the next president of the united states. so going to congress is not
necessarily going to side track the obama strategy on this. >> david, thank you so much and ann, as always. new pictures of former leader fid el castro with the five cuban agents in prison until they were released. it was taken this past saturday. >> after the cold blooded killing of nemtsov, mike mcfaul joining me next. the longest serving woman in congress, barbara mikulski. this is "andrea mitchell reports." ted. visit legalzoom today for the legal help you need to start and run your business.

in geneva secretary of state kerry met with his russian counterpart for tough talk about syria and iran and even tweeting this photo and calling the talks frank. >> i think president putin misinterprets a great deal of what the united states has been doing and is trying to do. we are not involved in multiple color revolutions as he asserts, nor are we you know involved in a particularly personal way here. we are trying to uphold the international law with respect to sovereignty and integrity of another nation and others have joined us. >> talk about picking your words carefully. look at this enormous protest on sunday in moscow against the
assassination of boris nemtsov, gunned down in the shadow of the kremlin. joining me now is former u.s. ambassador to russia michael mcfaul, you were a close friend of boris nemtsov and our condolences to you. this man has been described as a hero he was one of the early economic reformers in the '90s during the big transition in russia and was one of the great leaders by all accounts. mike? >> he was, you said it exactly right. he -- i'm glad you reminded people about the '90s because he was a two-time governor elected twice, elected to the parliament. he then became a deputy prime minister and i looked at the history, i think you have to go back to the stalin area to remember a time when such a high
level official was is a sasassassinated in russia. he became the most important and clearest critic of vladimir putin. he's going to be missed by his friends and family and also missed by russia because he was trying to make russia a better place. >> vladimir putin says that he's going to run personally -- personally run the investigation. he former successor to the kgb, is going to look into who killed boris nemtsov in this assassination in the shadow of the kremlin. how credible is that? >> i hope it will be credible. i'm glad the president of russia is focused on this. the history of previous investigations of political assassinations journalists and human rights activists have not been very conclusive. what makes me nervous is that the government in russia
including putin has already hinted that this is a pro vocation against them and that makes me nervous that we're not going to hear the facts. we're going to hear an affirmation of what the president has already said. >> i wanted to play a little bit of john mccain on "morning joe" today. his concerns about the way this has all been handled. >> well, i said to him, i said boris, i'm very worried about your safety. i think that these people are going to try to do you harm. that individualvladimir -- he said, i know but i have to go back and do this for my country. we now have news that just the last few days he gave an interview where he said that he knew his life was in danger. sad part about all of this joe, right now john kerry is meeting with lavrov as if nothing
happened. >> has the administration said enough to the russians and world about what this means? >> first of all, i want to remind you when nobody was paying attention to issues about democracy and human rights president met with boris nemtsov in 2009. we had a policy that we were going to meet with human rights activists and opposition leaders, so did the vice president and secretary clinton. i was at all of those meetings. this was a person known to him and they supported him. second i just want to underscore what the senator mccain said i felt that as ambassador that boris was under threat. when he would come to visit me he would be followed to my residence. he would be chased through the streets of moscow as he left. and he knew the risks he was taking and tragic that he always thought he was bigger that he couldn't be touched by them.
as to what the west should do i think the west should be more vigilant in supporting human rights and democracy, including people who are still fighting whether the statements are tough enough, i think we need toe go beyond statements and think about more concrete ways we can engage with these people to try to help them in their struggle for a democratic russia. >> what you said to me friday night when you just learned about this unfortunately was that boris nemtsov was the only leader who was challenging putin on ukraine, about to lead the demonstration which turpd into a memorial protest and only one brave enough to stay in russia and not be exiled and now he is dead. >> that's right. i mean boris was bigger than life. he was black and white. and he cut to the most difficult issues. he's the guy that put out a major report on corruption around sochi and accused putin
personally of that. he didn't mince words and didn't use diplo speak, he was very blunt and direct about what he said. unfortunately -- i don't want to connect dots that i don't know yet. i want to be careful about that. but this man paid for his political views about russia with his life. and one other thing i want to say, ir respective of who killed him and why he died for two years this regime through their state controlled media channels have called him a tralter, enemy of the state, stirred up hatred against people like nemtsov, that sometimes spins out of control. i hope those who have been responsible for this kind of propaganda might rethink their strategy. >> ambassador michael mcfaul, thanks for being with us. >> thank you. >> and up next the temporary homeland security stop-gap passed by congress but has a

it was a 7-day fix, five days left until they run out of money again at midnight on friday night. >> meet the new boss same as the old boss. i feel like i've written basically the same analysis for two straight years which is john boehner proposes fill in the blank and house conservatives tank that proposal. what you heard a lot of whether it was kevin mccarthy on "meet the press" or john boehner, the republican leadership is saying it's a difference in tactics or strategy i would quibble -- i think -- they do have a strategy and some tactics. the problem is the rum p caucus there within the republican party, their strategy such as it is is to say, we're not going to do anything unless we get everything we want. that's not really a strategy or really a tactic and it's hard for john boehner to find a way in with those people to find a way to say hey, look we need to row the boat in the right
direction. get us 80% there, as opposed to 5%. >> this is the wall street journal today, republicans need to do soul searching about the purpose of the congressional majority including whether they even want it. if they really think mr. boehner is the problem, then find someone else to do his thankless job. if not, then start to impose order and discipline and advance the conservative cause rather than self-defeating rebelion. >> i think this week will be different. what we're likely to see is john boehner define conservatives in his caucus and putting a clean funding bill on the house floor and let it pass with the support of mostly democrats and enough republicans because that's clearly the road that we're on. and it's not something that he wants to do or something that serves him well with the divisions in his caucus but keeps us from a shutdown which is the only other alternative. the senate will not go along with a funding bill that includes restrictions on
immigration action. that's just clear. >> with all of the talk chris and susan, about cpac and the field emerge, we have information news about hillary clinton, we knew there was the possibility of a slow roll out in april. now it looks according to the wall street journal and others that april really is the date. john podesta wants them to sort of declare the inevitable and what is obvious, that she's running for president. >> i would say quickly two things. one, there's a logistical reason for this. the second quarter of fund raising opens april 1st. the sooner you get in after that, the easier it is to raise money and have no issue with anyone talking about there being another candidate. the second thing, the longer she stays out, the longer she just has to keep taking incoming from the likes of cpac chuck on "meet the press" played this long clip hillary clinton,
hillary clinton, you want to have an active and formal effort to rebut those things and get her in the race because everyone at this point knows she's running anyway. >> i want to talk about barbara mikulski speaking of people who are really heroic in the role they have played in the senate when it was not easy to be a woman in the senate. these the first and only for a long time. she rose to the appropriations chair. and now retiring she announced today. >> two women senators when she came into the senate 20 now and one thing she has done she has been the sponsor of a monthly luncheon -- dinner of women senators. they had one last week with the new women senators just elected that has forged a real bond across party lines, the kind of thing you don't see that much on capitol hill these days with the women in the senate. that's made a real difference and many women senators i know you've heard them talk about this as have i, the model that
she's been in terms of forging some sense of both personal ties among the women senators but also a sense of willingness to cooperate on policy between republicans and democrats. >> and chris, this has been really important to women as susan was saying they call her senator barb and just defer to her. all of these women, with maybe a few exceptions even hillary clinton when she came in the senate always deferred to barbara mikulski as their senior. >> the number she cited, 2 to 20 is not due only to barbara mikulski but you need pioneers this is not kissing up to you, there's a lot of women in political journalism because an andrea mitchells of the world were doing it. i can wind up being that person that day and that breeds new generation after new generation.

supporters. richard engel joins me now. a lot going on in iraq. what's happening on the ground? >> reporter: an untraditional alliance is a very good way to describe it. what we're seeing is the first time the iraqi security forces are taking on a major city. saddam hussein's home town the city of tikrit which has been held by isis since june. for the last day and a half or so, you're seeing what we're seeing now, the iraqi army attacking tikrit also with aircraft and fighter jets and helicopters and while this offensive is going on you also have several thousand shiite militiamen who are linked and sponsored by iran who are participating in this offensive. and you have some sunni tribal fighters who hate isis because they have been attacked themselves by isis. so you have on the one hand the iraqi army which is being funded by the united states and
backed by the united states. fighting hand in glove with the shiites who are getting their direction from iran and the sunnis who have their own vision of what the fight should look like. it is a very big test for the disjointed iraqi security forces. can they take a major city so far they have been able to take some of the surrounding towns around tikrit in particular the town of aldore the town where saddam hussein went hiding after the u.s. invasion and pulled out of that hole in the ground which became called the spider hole. according to iraqi officials, the security forces have taken that but haven't yet engaged in street to street fighting in tikrit. that is now being attacked by air strikes and possibly artillery. >> on the propaganda front, isis now or at least some of the
twitter streams that have been associated with isis in the past, threatening dorsey and other officials at twitter. is this to be taken seriously? law enforcement is looking into it. >> reporter: what we've seen all along is isis using social media, using youtube, using twitter, to propogate its message to communicate and get out these horrific videos. we haven't seen twitter and youtube very quickly shut these down. if a new isis video comes out, usually you only have a few minutes to grab that video and put it on a hard drive or other format before the companies will take down those sites and it is obviously frustrating to isis. now we're seeing members of isis or isis linked accounts lashing out, saying you launch a virtual
war against us we will bring a real war to you. it's hard to know how credible those threats are but when you have a group like isis you probably want to take all of these threats seriously. >> of course and we've seen how effective their propaganda is at recruitment and inspiring young people, even three girls from london. now there's new video of them at the bus stop in istanbul. they were there for hours without anyone noticing them or questioning them. is it believed they did cross into syria, the three british girls? >> that's what british authorities have said and using the bus terminal has become the preferred mode of transportation for isis militants. before they would land at istanbul international airport from wherever from the arab world or from europe and then they would take local flights down to the border because turkey is a pretty big country and takes a while. those flights were increasingly monitored so now they travel by
road, which is much harder to control, you don't have manifest for a bus. you can buy a ticket and get on. >> a tragedy for those families as they worry about their lost girls. thank you very much. good to see you. and up next here one of two nurses who were infected with ebola working at that texas hospital is filing suit against whom and why coming up next on msnbc. real question that needs to be asked is "what is it that we can do that is impactful?" what the cloud enables is computing to empower cancer researchers. it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome; with the microsoft cloud we can analyze 100 per day. whatever i can do to help compute a cure for cancer, that's what i'd like to do. hey, girl. is it crazy that your soccer trophy is talking to you right now? it kinda is. it's as crazy as you not rolling over your old 401k. cue the horns... just harness the confidence
