>> thank you, donna. >> i am so grateful this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lour and savannah guthrie. >> good morning everyone. nbc news has learned the white house is about to announce a shift to the u.s. military strategy in iraq and syria. >> we understand this will mean more troops involved on the ground in that region. let's bring in richard angle. richard, good morning. tell us about this change and it sounds like it's an acknowledgment what we've been doing in syria and iraq is not working. >> reporter: the white house is calling this a shift and we're expected to hear from the white house shortly making this announcement. others, however, will call it a
significant change. first of all, it involves sending a small number of americans special operations forces into syria. that means american boots on the ground in syria working with local partners. in the past the u.s. has only been advising and assisting from afar mostly through air strikes. more fighter jets will be sent here to turkey conducting more air strikes against isis. a-10s are already here and a-15s are on the way. action will be placed in northern iraq to assist this campaign against isis. when you look at it altogether,
there are three significant announcements, all of them involve deeper u.s. military engagement on the war on isis. >> thank you for that. stand by there. >> let's go to nbc's nick. what are they saying at the pentagon? >> matt, after more than a year of yearly 8,000 air strikes against enemy forces in both iraq and syria, the best that senior military officials can say is that the fight there against isis is at a stalemate. the overall plan is just not working. training and equipping iraqi forces, syria rebels has not proven to be a breaking point. they need a game changer. they're going to be far more aggressive in terms of the special forces operations on the ground. military officials will tell you you cannot win a war with air strikes alone. you need some boots on the ground. the white house says these are not boots on the ground, this is
not a change but in fact, it is a change for a more aggressive strategy and effort to defeat and destroy isis which afterall is president obama's goal. >> before you go, i want to go over these numbers again. richard angle is saying not to exceed 100. these are special operations forces, will they be fighting alongside serian rebel groups? >> that is still unclear. they will indeed be fighting along with kurds as they did in iraq just a little more than a week ago in which the army maeser sergeant was killed. not clear they will be fighting side by side with the serian rebel groups. there's still a lot of gray area and doubts about exactly who you may be fighting with when you're on the ground in syria unless, of course, it's the serian kurds. >> all right, thank you. >> let's go to the white house now. kristin welker is live there.
this president has not wanted to be more involved in these conflicts finds himself once again sending more troops into these dangerous areas. >> reporter: and that is the key point here. the white house trying to down play this announcement. we do not anticipate we'll hear from president obama about this. his press secretary will address the media at 12:30 today. this is a shift in policy for a president who wanted to ramp down the wars in iraq and afghanistan and were called just a few weeks ago president obama said he was going to leave a larger troop presence in afghanistan and now for the first time troops in syria. we'll hear more. we're announcing the white house plans say there's going to be an enhancement and shift in strategy that will involve more
troops in these areas. >> we're going to be hearing that from the white house in a little while. good morning i'm katy zachry, let's take a quick look at your halloween forecast. >> it's a spectacular day. we'll be seeing lots of sunshine and you can see on the satellite picture there's not much around there and the temperatures, well, it's going to be chilly today, in the 50s for a high today and tomorrow. looks good for these trick-or-treaters. i'm katy zachry. with cancer, early detection can mean life or death.
so, when chris brown and will pauls would recklessly deny access to basic health services like mammograms and annual exams, it makes a real difference in women's lives. chris brown voted against funding for cancer screenings. and will pauls opposed funding for clinics that provide access to mammograms - life-saving procedures women rely on. chris brown and will pauls: a risk that women in atlantic county can't afford.

loewenberg. kath told you that her recurring nightmare is that she has a big wad of gum in her mouth and she can't sing or get it out. what does that mean? >> anything with the mouth in the dream has to do with communication, and so what you should say or not say, and you have a mouthful of gum which means you have a mouthful of things to say. >> she says them. >> right, reej. >> i have made a lot of money here with her. >> and in your case since you can't open up the mouth it is the subconscious saying, wait, think about it before it comes out. >> think it through. >> mine is running, and i'm in running in slow motion and somebody is chasing me, and i can't lift up my legs to run. >> being chased in a dream is conmekted to the avoiding something and trying to get out of the obligation or the confrontation, and something that you don't want to deal with. with when you can't move or if
