we apologize where necessary as the president did in this case. >> organization. >> despite the apology, doctors without borders is still calling for an independent investigation. there's no apology from russia in a major escalation in syria and apparent close call with a u.s. plane. in an extra necessary display of russian force, warships from the caspian sea fired at targets 900 miles away in syria. president putin says those targets were isis terrorists but the u.s. says not so fast. >> i've said before that we believe russia has the wrong strategy. they continue to hit targets that are not isil. >> put it inhas been targeting opposition forces some of them u.s.-backed who are fighting syrian dictator bashar al assad and it's creating a dangerous situation for u.s. aircraft which have had close encounters.

russia's nuclear stockpiles are extremely vulnerable to theft and diversion. >> it's undeniable evidence of a failure in nuclear security, material that was supposed to be under authorized control was found outside of it. >> reporter: and adding to the concern is the fact that since the first of the year, russia has effectively stopped all cooperation with the u.s. to track down and stop the so-called loose nukes. u.s. officials say isis seems much more frommed this chemical weapons than a dirty bomb. but officials fear with all its cash and evil intentions it won't be lock before the nuclear smugglers come knocking on the isis door. brian ross, abc news, new york. >> now to presidential politics starting with hillary clinton who is breaking away from president obama on the issue of trade. clinton says she now opposed the so-called transpacific partnership a u.s. trade deal with pacific rim nations. she helped lay the groundwork for the deal as president obama's secretary of state.
