tv   New Day Saturday  CNN  September 13, 2014 3:00am-6:01am PDT

3:00 am
breaking overnight. a big star on the football feel turns himself into authorities after indictment on child abuse. this morning, another pr disaster for the nfl. the administration finally says it is at war with isis. the question is who is with us? john kerry just arrived in cairo. he's looking for some helping hands. and george zimmerman. this man just won't go away. he's back in trouble, after allegedly threatening to kill another person on the road. we've got the 911 and the dash cam video. >> your "new day" starts now.
3:01 am
good morning, you. it's early 6:00 on the east coast. up know, i was driving into work at 3:00, i saw people riding their bikes. >> really. >> at 3:00 a.m. >> i wonder if they're headed home or headed out. >> i don't know, but they were having fun. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. this is "new day saturday." secretary of state john kerry as christi mentioned just a moment ago is in cairo. it's the latest stop on the worldwide swing for the middle east. >> his goal is to build imsupport for the coalition against isis. while he's getting support there is not specific guarantee here regarding what the allies goring to do. >> cnn foreign affairs expert alise labbot joins us from cairo. secretary of state john kerry is
3:02 am
trying to get support from cairo, especially on the diplomatic and military front. any indication if he's been successful thus far? >> i think, certainly, while the military and the role that egypt would play would be unclear, certainly on the diplomatic front there's a lot that egypt could do. u.s. officials say they really want egypt to take over the role with the government of iraq with prime minister nuri al maliki, and now they want to bring eye rack back into the community. israeli is the heart of the arab world. officials say in addition to stopping the flow of foreign fighters into iraq and that may transform them, they as want egyptian religious leaders to start speaking out. in those surveys speaking out against isis and that brutal
3:03 am
ideolog ideology, victor. >> we know that kerry was in turkey yesterday. we wonder what his part is in taking part in the campaign? >> well, christi, any role that turkey would play is kind of discrete at this point. and that's because there are 49 turkish government officials being held hostage by isis right now. so turkey treading carefully because they don't want to do anything to invoke isis. because you saw what happened to the two american journalists, the gruesome beheading. list to secretary kerry talking about the role turkey can play. >> turkey and the united states will stand together against any challenges within the region, including all terrorism. within the coalition there are many ways that turkey can help in this effort. and we will continue our conversations with our military and other experts spending time to define the specific role that turkey will play.
3:04 am
>> from here, kerry goes to paris where he'll be meeting with a group of countries in the coalition about what roles they can play. whether iran will take part that that, christi and victor, a little unclear. there was some talk maybe they could take part. but some say secretary of state john kerry is not an actor making sure there is trouble in the region. and a former top commander of american and nato troops in afghanistan is weighing in on president obama's plan. >> retired four-star general stanley mcchrystal said isis is a significant threat to iraq and the u.s. cnn's aaron burnett asked about the plan to arm syrian rebel is the right thing to do. >> i think it's a necessary move. if you don't arm the rebels, then you leave them in a position between the extreme groups like isis and al nusra.
3:05 am
and if you set the standards high like they must all be college graduates, completely vetted, you can put any number in reality, that's not what opposition groups and guerillas like that are typically made up. >> general mcchrystal also told erin that isis is vulnerable because now they have to defend. >> yeah, that have to defend what's there in syria but also what the iraqi forces are trying to take back. so u.s. surveillance claims they're now flying over the skies of syria. we've known that for a little while now. >> yeah, the submission to gather intelligence to help to determine when to launch targets there. let's talk about this with retired colonel rick francona in morning. >> and we also have the managing director of international protection, specializing on advising companies and
3:06 am
governments on counterterrorism measures. i want to start with you, will. thank you both for joining us. what information might these surveillance flights be gathering in syria that could play a major role in the decision to launch these air strikes? >> well, they certainly believe that stay large proportion of isis hierarchy and certainly their commander in control could still be operating out of syria. ultimately, although the insurgency has been successful in isis it's key to look at the roots and try to carve out the roots. and it's critical to try to arm the suitable rebels opponents to isis to try and curb, not only curb their activities, but also to provide the critical intelligence to where their positions and strongholds might be. >> rick, i wanted to ask you, what did we learn, what did the u.s. learn specifically after training iraqi fighters that might not have worked there, that we might be able to employ
3:07 am
in this instance, when we talk about arming rebels and helping syria? >> yeah, and it's two different worlds here. we were training the iraqi army to stand up and go fight as a conventional force. we put the leadership in place. we put a pretty good force out there. unfortunately that was all taken away when we left in 2011 and prime minister nuri al maliki was able to pretty much gut the leadership of the military. when we start arming the syrian rebels they have a structure in place. it's a different force. they're more of an asymmetrical warfare. they're more of a guerilla force. they're fighting on their own turf. they know where to fight. they know where the bad guys are. what they need from us is the money, weapons and training that will allow them to do that. >> let's talk about boots on the ground. the phrase that we've heard over and over for the past couple of months. general hayden has criticized the president for saying there
3:08 am
will be no boots on the ground. he's not alone, senators mccain and graham have done the same thing. do you think it's a bad idea to articulate amongst our allies and enemies that the u.s.s. not going to but boots on the ground? >> i think it's fairly dangerous to a certain extent, it's too early about making a definitive statement about they're not being boots on the round. to try and determine isis positions, second at astrike on a multinational force. although the drones and reconnaissance can hit to the larger open areas, if you like, where isis also have control is civilian-occupied towns. now, you can't drone strike those areas. obviously you would have a high civilian rating. ultimately, they will try and
3:09 am
pin them into these urban areas if you like. but that inevitably will have to follow with some kind of boots on the ground activity. that's my speculation at this stage. >> rick, there was one counterterrorism analyst who said isis is a future to the u.s., they're not a current threat to the u.s. they haven't launched any explicit strikeses here. but i'm wondering how plausible you think it is that they can be cut off beforehand? >> well, they present a danger in the cyberspace world. we've seen virus us and cybertech things. they can do that almost immediately. are they a physical threat to the united states right now? it depends who you listen to, there are many in the intelligence community that believe isis has people in the united states but those would be low-level attacks and will makes a very good point. at some point, is this going to have to be addressed over there. once we get the air forces and the special forces campaign on
3:10 am
the way, boots on the ground is a reality. but the question is, whose boots. >> we're running out of time here. but you're the perfect time to ask this question because you advice governments. overnight, australia raised the threat level there to high. we no prime minister cameron announced the increase in the uk to severe. the u.s., australia, uk, all say that there is no specific direct threat to the respective countries. so what's the value of increasing these threat levels, considering the point of terrorism is to scare people? is this not just giving a victory to isis? >> well, i don't think it is. again, following from what rick was saying earlier, i think u.s. has a risk of threat potential as we do in the united kingdom and australia as well. i wouldn't be surprised in the next months to follow you will see that as well. in terms of threats, i believe there are threats.
3:11 am
i believe there are possibly potential plots in the planning. one has to be considering how the threat levels need to work effectively, raising the levels of general public. a lot of these plots are foiled by the general public. >> thank you, gentlemen. so just days after an explosive video surfaced showing baltimore ravens player ray rice knocking out his then fiancee, i know you've all seen it, there's another nfl star in trouble this morning. why vikings running back adrian peterson has been indicted by a grand jury. and plus, nfl commissioner roger goodell facing pressure to resign over the ray rice incident. will he? >> you're watching "new day saturday." ♪ it's a new day it's a new day getting ready ♪ turn the trips you have to take,

the legal situation." >> and they pulled him from the nfl game tomorrow. >> and pressure is mounting for commissioner roger goodell to step down as so many people questioned what he knew and when he knew it about then knocking out his then fiancee and now wife janay. good morning, miguel. >> victor, christi, good morning, that process for ray rice's indefinite suspension is under way while this scandal morphs into a head to head contest between ray rice and roger goodell. >> reporter: today, roger goodell in a letter making official the indefinite suspension, the nfl chief lays blame at the of ray rice himself for misleading him on what happened in an elevator in february. in a letter to the nfl player's association obtained by espn, goodell referencing the second
3:17 am
video obtained by tmz sports showing the inside of the elevator. he writes, this video shows a starkly different sequence of events from what you and your representatives stated when we met on june 16. the question of what rice told goodell during that june 16th meeting under scrutiny. four sources telling espn that rice was forth right in telling goodell he punched and then hit janay palmer. >> do you wish you had seen this videotape before it was released by tmz? >> absolutely. >> why? >> that's why we asked for it on several occasions. before making that decision, we want to have all the information available. obviously that was when we met with ray rice and his representatives, it was ambiguous about what actually happen >> reporter: on wednesday, goodell continued to blame rice for misleading hill. >> the description of what happened is not consistent with what the videotape was.
3:18 am
you know, when you see that, that was clear. >> reporter: "the wall street journal" reporting just yesterday goodell told nfl owners he was led to believe palmer's unconsciousness was the result of her falling as both of them struck each other. regardless of what was said in the june 16 meeting, commissioner goodell, anyone only had to read the initial complaint. it was publicly available and widely reported for months and clear as day. rice struck her with his hand rendering her unconscious. and with the investigation now under way with the former fbi director robert mueller, it's unlikely we'll hear from roger goodell. the next move, ray rice. he has until tuesday at noon to appeal that indefinite suspension. >> thank you very much. let's get you caught on other stories.

breaking news this morning. police from three states are now involved in a massive search in northeastern pennsylvania. >> why? well, this follows a shooting in rural bloomingdale township. we know one trooper is dead. amanda kelly joins us on the phone. what have you learned? >> reporter: well, victor and christi, we've been here throughout the night, state
3:25 am
police have confirmed there was a shooting at the blooming grove state police barracks. one trooper is dead, another has been shot. state police have not named any suspects. they're actively looking for a shooter, route 202 in the poconos is shut off at this time. throughout the evening, our crews watched as hundreds of state police vehicles and s.w.a.t. team cars were seen rushing towards the barracks. at this time, we don't have any information about who might be responsible or any possible motive behind the deadly shooting. but what we do know, the scene is very much active and the investigation is ongoing. >> do you know, amanda, if they're looking for more than one person? do they believe there's more than one person involved in this? >> reporter: unfortunately, right now, we haven't been given any indication if it was one or more than one individual involved in this deadly shooting. but we do know that one trooper
3:26 am
is dead and that another has been shot. >> what do we know about the accessibility of this area? i mean, this is a place that it could make a herculean effort to get access to the troopers? or just a door or two, i mean, this happened in the parking lot? how accessible is this barracks? >> reporter: we haven't been given an indication if this happened inside the parking lot or inside the barracks. but christi and victor, this is a barracks that our news teams visit very frequently for news stories. it's just like many state police barracks. you walk in the front door, there's a desk that's behind bulletproof glass and a secured door before you can get into any of the offices or rooms within the rest of the barracks. so, right now, you know, we're asking many questions how could somebody get into a state police barracks and do such a thing.
3:27 am
>> any indication as to the condition of that second officer who was shot, amanda? >> reporter: at this time, we haven't been given any condition reports for the injured officer -- injured trooper. but we did see several medical helicopters in the area, in the early morning hours as of right now, we do not know what area hospitals they may have been flown to. and if indeed it was the trooper inside the medical helicopters. we're still waiting. it's been a very busy night for investigators. and we are still waiting with information from state police on just where exactly this investigation is going. >> all right. amanda kelley from cnn affiliate wnep. we appreciate the update. thank you. >> reporter: thank you. >> we'll keep you posted on that obviously as we get more information and that search for that shooter continues. listen, we want to talk about a florida driver is

3:34 am
given a two-game suspension even initially. goodell is facing pressure to step down from his post. >> and, of course, now while rice is on the sidelines indefinitely, one athlete who initially supported him is now back-tracking. that celebrity boxer floyd mayweather. "forbes" "magazine said he's the highest paid athlete this year, he'll pull in about $105 million. >> the question getting raised should he be being paid the big bucks after all, he's had his own history of violence. rachel nichols asked him. >> the incident you wept to jail for, the mother of your three children did show bruising, a concussion. it was your own kids. detailed description of abuse. there's been documentation. >> uh-huh. once again, no pictures, just
3:35 am
hearsay and allegations and i signed a plea bargain so once again not true. >> well, the website once aga againdeadspin detailed incidents with other women. are we supposed to believe that the witnesses are allel lying even when they're you're own kids. >> well, obviously, everybody is entitled to their own opinion. >> notice what he said first, no pictures. let's talk about that. let's talk to alex mcclintock, good evening to you in australia. you wrote about the rice video, and we just heard mayweather say no pictures. talk about why that's key. >> i think that's key because -- extremely key, we should have assumed from the beginning when
3:36 am
we heard that ray rice knocked out his then fiancee now wife, that it was a bulgrutal inciden. that's what it looks like when a man knocks out a woman but in the series of floyd mayweather, there's been testify over the last ten years. there hasn't been that connection. it's sad if we can picture mayweather breaking into his wife's house and hitting her in the back of the house while his children watched. that's just as brutal as what ray rice did and should face the same consequences. >> i think that picture is categorized -- even ray rice's attorney has categorized it as a minor incident. >> they minimize it. >> right. what is interesting, alex, were you writing and i want to quote it here, nearly a quarter of all
3:37 am
women either have been physically or sexually assaulted by a partner, yet our highest paid an is an abuser. what should women do? >> not attending the events and not buying pay per views, i mean, you could save 75 bucks. but at the same time, it's your decision. maybe some people can separate the man from his skills. i'm not sure. but the problem with boxing is that it's the wild west. there's not really any power structure that can discipline floyd mayweather in the same -- >> so there are these individual state commissions that rule, and if you can't fight -- okay. so we've lost him, unfortunately. our thanks to alex mcclintock. you know what i've said, although people having this reaction to the video of the
3:38 am
punch. visually the video of his dragging out of the elevator to me is as graphic as the punch. >> when i saw it, and i don't know about the rest of you, i said -- i gasped when i saw the punch. but then my jaw was on the floor for the entire rest of the video. you think he could have picked her up and at least given her some dignity walking out of that elevator. he's a big man. he could have picked her up. >> yeah. >> at the same time, she's coming out saying she wants to work this out. a lot of people don't understand why she was bringing the media. but at the end of the day, you don't know what's going on behind closed doors. only the people do. maybe he's going through intense therapy to get help. we don't know that. all we can do is wait and see what happens. but enough people upset about this they're saying don't go to the games which was really contrary to what we saw yesterday with all the people in the rice jerseys.
3:39 am
>> yeah, in baltimore on thursday, saying they support him. and they said they don't believe what he did wasn't right. we'll continue to follow the story, let's talk about what's happening north of the border. embattled toronto mayor rob ford is dropping his bid for re-election. it does not mean there will be a ford on the ballot come november? >> that's a hint. we'll tell you who he has asked to take his place. the u.s. open was your 18th career grand slam win. that ties you with chris evert and martina navratilova. chrissy, martina, i'll let that sink in. what is that like? >> i know, chrissy and martina, i can finally be will now. you hear these names growing up,

american personnel and facilities. killed isil fighters, destroyed weapons and given space for iraqi and kurdish forces to reclaim key territory. these strikes have also helped save the lives of thousands of innocent, men, women and children. >> president obama there making the case to the nation on using air strikes against isis. but not everyone thinks that it's a good idea. earlier i spoke with cnn political commentator sally cohen who wrote an op-ed making the case against the bombings, watch. >> we know that the reason isis exists in the first place is because of american bombing. both because -- when the united states does these sorts of things abroad, especially in the middle east, it creates enemies to this country. people don't like their homes being bombed. they don't like seeing civilians being killed. that's part of it but also our involvement in the middle east
3:51 am
created the political instability that allows isis to take root. that's key for people to understand. this is a political crisis. it needs a political solution, not a military one. >> so all parties here agree that isis has to be destroyed. it has to be degraded and destroyed. if air strikes is not the right way to go, what is the right way to go? >> well, the key thing here, the why, all right. there are a lot of awful institutions around the world that we in the united states don't always take action against them. usually we do so. when there is a credible threat against the united states there is not one here. and that's really important, if you're listening to politicians, the white house, even if you're listening to the media you might get the impression that there say direct threat. there is not. but what do military analysts do say is that bombing probably has a significant risk of creating
3:52 am
that kind of threat because isis will then want to retaliate. that's not a situation we need to find ourselves in. we need to support restructuring of iraq which we're doing. and we can cut off their guns and monies but this doesn't have to be our fight. >> the conversation as a direct threat to the united states, we also know that isis has beheaded two american journalists already, westerners who have joined the fight there in the levant, and many are coming back to the united states and the uk. and if you have that defect, you shut off the the air strikes can do, right? >> we have the somali partners, that's happening around the grobe. that doesn't mean we launch air strikes towards the targets. the beheadings are important, a lot of legal analysts have
3:53 am
pointed out the point of isis airing those videos was to goad the united states. a lot of people says us bombing isis not legitimizes us as an enemy. but even more ground and reason for recruit even more opponents. bombing doesn't destroy terrorists. it just creates more terror. >> list of your other options from your perspective and other advocates other than bombing it's on cnn.com. sail cohen, we appreciate you having you on. there are a lot of americans who are war-weary because of the ten years plus in afghanistan. plus the effort in iraq and the deaths related to those and the people who came home who needed care. we're going to talk about that care. a person that uses music as medicine to help the warriors. cnn wounded warriors. helped hundreds. at walter reed medical

4:00 am
minnesota vikings star adrian peterson turns himself into police after an indictment on child abuse. the obama administration says we're at war against isis. the question is who's with us. secretary of state john kerry is in cairo this morning looking to ad some allies. and george zimmerman in trouble again, it seems. after allegedly threatening to kill another driver. we've got the 911 call that started the whole thing. >> your "new day" continues right now. it is an early 7:00 a.m. here. so just, you know, stay in bed, relax. you don't need to get up and get going too quickly. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. don't rush it, this is "new day saturday." let's talk about america's top diplomat, he's chris caus c crossing the middle east. >> secretary of state john kerry is in cairo.
4:01 am
president obama said they'll join to fight against militants but will they put boots on the ground. >> good morning, ladies. elise, i'd like to start with you, egypt is one nation that has agreed to join the coalition. what else is the u.s. specifically seeking from cairo? >> well, christi, it's mostly kind of diplomatic and political help. egypt is really seen as the intellectual heart of the arab world. what they're looking for is first of all, they want them to spend more capital, spend more political time with the new ire react government. over the years, iraq has been shunned by the arab world because of the actions and feelings that they had about former prime minister al maliki. now that the new government is, they want basic lit arabs to sort of, you know, bring them into the fold of the arab community. secondly, they want egypt to stop the flow of foreign
4:02 am
fighters, financing going through egypt. a lot are transporting through egypt. and thirdly, what they want them to do is send out their religious leaders to be sending a message to them, friday services, friday prayers that isis is the enemy. and that this brutal form of islam is not the way that these people should be going. kind of trying to stop recruitment there. >> so elise, when you asked secretary kerry if the u.s. is at war with isis, he said this is a very significant counterterrorism operation. i want to take the question to erin at the white house. the administration says, yes, that the u.s. is at war with isis? >> well, victor, look, administration officials have danced around this really all week and that is because in part, president obama didn't really declare war in his major address to the nation on wednesday night.
4:03 am
but here's the official line from white house press secretary josh earnest yesterday. listen. >> the united states is at war with isil in the same way that we're at war with al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates all around the globe. >> now, i'd point thut the public does not want to see a protracted ward like an afghanistan, like an iraq. but terrorism has shot up as a major concern for americans. the polls show really within the last month, three quarters want to see air strikes against isis but 60% don't want to see troops on the ground however, there are, of course, troops in syria in security roles. also training forces there on the ground from other countries. but it's a very delicate line that the administration is walking right now, christi and victor. >> with that note, elise, are we going to see or is there any indication that arab nations will put boots on the ground against isis? >> i don't think arab nations
4:04 am
are going to put boots on the ground. they're looking for overflight rights, basing rights but looking for arabs for more logisticalle support. again tracking down on the foreign fighters. also intelligence. i think the majority of the air strikes can take place from the united states and other than american nations. >> and, erin, secretary kerry will be before congress next week. tell us what you we're expecting from this appearance. >> well, look, the administration is taking it one step at a time. and they're made it very clear that they want congressional buy-in. so congressional leaders like to be brought into this. and that's why we're going to see secretary of state john kerry up there testifying. then the following day on wednesday, president obama is trampling to tampa will he will be meeting with the leadership of centcom that's where the administration houses its dealings with the middle east.
4:05 am
homeland security leader jeh johnson said he's looking at stepping up the security at airports because they want to stop them from coming to places like the united states. so we're seeing a lot of different efforts being stepped up incrementally throughout without the administration. >> elise labbot traveling with the secretary in cairo. erin mcpike, ladies, thank you both. a former top commander in afghan is weighing in on president obama's plan to take on isis. >> retired four-star general stanley mcchrystal said isis is a serious threat to iraq, syria and the u.s. cnn asked him if it's the right thing to do. >> i think it's a necessary move. if you don't arm the rebels then you leave them in a position between the extreme groups like isis and al nusra, and the army
4:06 am
of bashar al assad. so i think you have to do that. so it's hard. if you set this incredibly high standards like they have to be college graduates and completely vetting. that's not what opposition groups and guerillas likes that are typically made of. >> and he said isis is now vulnerable because it has to defend that territory. >> let's talk about this cnn military attache in syria retired colonel rick francona. >> let's start with you, colonel francona. is there enough to be drafted or addressed into service? >> well, stop maybe, but certainly not able to defeat them. the first thing you need to do is blunt the offensive in iraq. they're making progress in doing
4:07 am
that. the air strikes have been very effective combined with the army and the peshmerga up in the north. the air strikes in syria can be effective, they can go after the trappings of the state that the isis has tried to set up. they have a capital in raqqa. they got trained controls and logistics. and as you said, they have territory they have to defend. so they can be effective in that instance. but once you move beyond that, destroying them, degrading them, that's going to require probably troops on the ground. you can only bomb so much. so we're going to put boots on the ground. the question is, as you mentioned, whose boots. >> josh, i want to reading in from the daily beast, if the u.s. arms the free syrian army to fight isis they are going to do that is he aim time, no matter what the white house says. basically you're saying they're going to be drawn into the
4:08 am
ongoing syria war as well and therefore fighting two different wars? >> exactly. i spent the last couple of days speaking to syrian and opposition leaders. and they said that the obama administration is telling them to fight isis and not the regime. to them, that's bananas. they're always fighting the regime and isis. you'll always have groups in syria as long as bashar al assad is in power. he's the magnet for the terrorists. he's committing more atrocities than isis is. and that's the problem. toover throw the regime. and isis is the problem and that's the way they get america to support them. in the end, if the u.s. wants to give them weapons to do it, that's fine, but that's what they're doing because those are the two groups that are killing them on a daily basis. >> colonel, retired general michael hayden said something that got people who weren't even paying attention to what's happening.
4:09 am
he's compared air strikes to casual sex. let's listen and talk about it on the other side. >> the strategic level, air power has all the attraction of casual sex. it offers gratification, but with limited commitment. >> so, i guess he gets to the point and we talked about this with our jake tapper. to say that you'll commit to these air strikes but not to commit to boots on the ground as we've talked about is sending a message that is not securing to our allis. and probably that will offer some reinforcement to the enemy. is our engagement too limited? >> yeah, i think that the general, in his articulate way, you know, hits the nail right on the head here. we're willing to do air strikes, and we've said that. but that almost -- we want to make it sound clean and surgical and at no risk. that's just not true. when you send up pilots they are at risk.
4:10 am
especially in syria where they have an air defense system. that's dangerous. what the general was saying we can't go halfway. we have to make the full commitment. if isis is a threat to the united states as the administration says, if it is truly a threat, then we have to deal with it. we can't outsource our fighting. we can't outsource boots on the ground. we have to do it. we tried this in afghanistan with the northern alliance, and it didn't work. it won't work here. unfortunately, it's very politically dangerous for anyone to say we need to put american boots on the ground but in the end, that may be what's required. >> josh, what's so alarming this week, we had this indication that there were maybe 10,000 isis fighters. now, we learned it's three times that at least. do you know, is that an expansion of isis just in the last, say, six months when they now have been all over the news and more people know who they are? or was that just a horrible
4:11 am
underestimation of our intelligence? >> what happened in syria was, if you're an average syrian insurgent and you just want to get into the fight, you're going join schfr growhichever group h guns and the money. right now, isis has all the guns and the money. they're getting that from all the opposition groups that used to be fighting against them. they don't want to get killed. they want to survive as long as possible. the theory is if we give them the guns and monies, people will go back to them. they don't want to fight for these guys but at the same time, they don't want to die. so isis has been growing. as they get more money, they pay salaries. they go into communities, they pay people to get married. they get into all of these different structures. so this kind of supports the idea that the only way to really defeat isis is to draw the fighters back to the people who we kind of like. and it also speaks to what michael hayden said, because if we don't make the commitment, if
4:12 am
we don't commit to solving the problems in both iraq and syria, this problem is going to go on forever. i think the syrian rebels are saying if you like it put a ring on it. >> gentlemen, thank you so much for being here. >> a beyonce reference in the discussion of isis. in one segment, reference to casual sex and beyonce. thank you both. for minnesota vikings fans do not expect to see star obama adrian peterson on the field tomorrow. he just surrendered to police overnight. accused of being involved in injury to a child. also, george zimmerman accused of threatening to kill someone else in florida. you're going to hear that 911 call. ts. lots of them, right? but when you try to get one by using your travel rewards card miles... those seats mysteriously vanish. why? all the flights you want are blacked out. or they hit you up for some outrageous number of miles. switch to the venture card from capital one.

with venture, use your miles on any airline, any flight, any time. no blackout dates. and with every purchase you'll earn unlimited double miles. now we're getting somewhere. what's in your wallet? now we're getting somewhere. that are acidic...ds most of the time people are shocked when we show them where they're getting the acid, and what those acids can do to the enamel. there's only so much enamel on a tooth, and everybody needs to do something about it now if they want to preserve their teeth. i recommend pronamel because it helps strengthen the tooth and makes it more resistant to acid breakdown. we want to be healthy and strong through the course of our life, and by using pronamel every day, just simply using it as your toothpaste, you know you will have that peace of mind.

4:19 am
defending the star running backs. here's what rusty harden is saying, quote, adrian is a loving father, he used his judgment to discipline his son. he used the same discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east texas. and that statement goes on to say it is important to remember that adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury. again, the attorney is saying that peterson has been fully cooperating with the authorities. he's out on $15,000 bond, but we will not be seeing him play in sunday's game when the vikings take on the patriots at home in minnesota. right now, he's been deactivated for that. the vikings have put out their own statement saying they're in the process of gathering information involving the legal situation involving adrian peters peterson. christi, victor, you cannot just ignore the fact that comes on the heels of the nfl that we've

4:25 am
tuesday a man said george zimmerman threatened him from his car. two days later police stopped zimmerman after that same man called 911 to say he thought he saw george zimmerman here his office. >> it's disheartening to see him lurking around here. >> reporter: moments later, dash cam video shows an officer taking zimmerman's gun, appearing relaxed and smiling. a police report says zimmerman told them he was in the area for a doctor's appointment. after the exchange, police gave him his gun back. zimmerman also admitted to being involved in a verbal incident earlier in the week but denied threatening anyone. this is the latest in a string of incidents involving zimmerman since his acquittal last year. in november, zimmerman was arrested and charged at sem mole county florida tour allegedly pointing a gun at his then girlfriend charges were not
4:26 am
filed. last year, police in texas and florida stopped zimmerman for speeding. and in 2013 zimmerman's estranged wife shelly called 911 saying zimmerman had threatened her and her father. no charges were filed in that case either. meanwhile, the caller in the 70 incident said he never saw zimmerman flash a gun in both cases he didn't want to prosecute or press charges so zimmerman was not arrested. >> we cannot press charges. without a victim, we do not have a crime. >> nick, a lot of people would wish this man would drift off to a low-profile lifestyle. >> he just can't say out of the media spotlight. with the incidents, the string of incidents over the last year or two years really makes it easy to bring negative attention

4:32 am
situation, there is another star player in hot water this morning. >> yeah, minnesota vikings star adrian peterson has posted a 15,000ed bail after turning himself into authorities for a felony charge of injure to a child. >> according to peterson's lawyer, the charge stems from accusations that peterson used a switch to spank and discipline his 4-year-old son. that's a thin branch, as its known. photos do show that the child suffered cuts and bruises from that incident. >> after news ever the indictment by the texas grand jury. the vikings released a state. we'll put it up on the screen, they're in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving adrian peterson. a bit vague, but they are working ton. >> the nfl and the ravens, both of them have been in the trouble in the wake of the ray rice controversy. it's not turning viewers away which has a lot of people surprised.
4:33 am
>> consider this, on thursday, cbs scored huge ratings for the broadcast of the ravens/steelers game. viewers didn't jump, 108% from last year's viewership. it was the strongest for the network in nearly a decade. >> ray rice, of course, was not playing. the broadcast became a must-watch for fans and nonfans alike apparently. we want to talk about this with cnn commentator mo robbins and melissa dawn simpkins. velvet sweet. ladies, were you surprised, first of all, that the ratings spiked so much? >> you know, my firm has had an amazing thing with the nfl. it does not surprise me because of business of football is football. one of the things that i think the nfl is now learning in a new economy is that it's not just about football anymore.
4:34 am
there's a social responsibility. even though it's great, the greatest asset to players. >> the biggest rivalry that the ravens have, that biggest rivalry is the pittsburgh steelers. when they bring those towels into town, you'll see that even without the controversy. mel, you've written an op-ed on cnn.com this week. you take the nfl for their handling of ray rice situation. and you say the nfl should be held for despicable handling of it. do you think he'll be out? >> good morning. no, i don't think he's going to be out because under the constitution and the bilaws for the nfl it takes three quarters of the owners to vote him out. and he's making them a lot of money. and you asked a question of melissa about the ratings. i point to something else. i don't think it's necessarily a sign of support to the ravens.
4:35 am
i think that the jump has more to do with the rubber necking effect of watching a train wreck. you've got them pulling rihanna, you've got norah o'donnell there doing a special broadcast about the controversy. you've got people tuning in to see if there's ricesters. it had less to do with the support of ray rice and the ravens more to do with the morbid fascination of watching a train wreck unfold. >> what do you say to that? >> i believe there's a truth to that but i also believe there's a shift to what's happening in the football. we can't just focus on the game. players are great liabilities. i think for a long time, if you look at the nfl's mission statement, it's all about performance on the field. and their growth revenue goals for 2025 according to "usa today" are $25 billion. that's only going to happen as they also begin to manage the issue of player challenges that they're having off the field.

and that's what really what we're talking about. the fault that the nfl has is being negligent in really proactively dealing with this issue head on. we need to hear the message we needed to hear it earlier. and more often. >> what's happening with north carolina with the panthers and now we know several other teams. does that really correspond with a no tolerance policy? greg hardy was convicted. this is not just someone who had accusation or charges. he was convicted and then played for the team. so you can say zero tolerance, but it's really not coming to fruition, right? >> victor, you just nailed it. two days ago, the owner of the panthers was accepting an award honoring him for the fact that he doesn't show any indifference to social issues. and he started crying and saying we shouldn't be quick to judge. and look, a judge found his
4:37 am
player guilty and this owner is still allowing him to play pensdipens pending the appeal. it's ridiculous. if there's a zero tolerance it means do you what was done with adrian peterson. the nfl has done the right thing. he's been indicted on serious felony charges. he's admitted to hitting his kid, sorry for the injuries. and the nfl has done the right thing there. they've sidelined him. they can continue to pay him during the investigation. but one of the things i'd like to see happen victor and christi, the nfl needs to change its domestic violence policies to reflect zero tolerance. what that would look like, at the point of arrest, you have a suspension, not of pay, but a suspension from the field, pending an investigation. and why that's important is because the nfl is in the business of making money off a game where guys fight over a ball. they are not every going to be
4:38 am
in the business of finding the truth about their players and what they're doing in their private lives. the nfl wants to hear the story that ray and janay rice are okay now and we can all just move on. so their interest is never going to be aligned with truly protecting the victim. so they shouldn't be in a position to having to figure that out. you should have a zero tolerance policy like you do with performance-enhancing drugs. at the moment of arrest, you are suspended pending the investigation, period, victor. >> we only have a couple seconds. melissa. >> i think at the end of the day, the nfl brand is a beloved brand in this country, we know that. i think what's going to have to happen in order to see the changes. it's going to have to be a cultural shift. not just football but how they think about managing their brand. their brand is deeply connected to the players. they cannot be inseparable. >> lastly, if roger goodell saw that tape, do you think he
4:39 am
should go? >> if he saw it, he lied. then he should go. >> all right, ladies, thank you for being with us. we really appreciate it. this morning, a massive storm of radiation from the sun is slamming the planet. have you seen it? apparently some can. >> some people fear that it destroyed power grids and wiped out the gps system on your car, your phone, satellites. we'll talk about it. so what we're looking for is a way to "plus" our accounting firm's mobile plan.

4:51 am
thank you both. so bret, three styles, $349, is the hype worth it? >> um, look, they are going to get people to line up for this thing. people are very excited about it. apple made a watch sexy. the watch we thought went away with the smart phone because that's what we use to tell time. i definitely think this will be, i think they have a hit on their hands or on their wrists. >> nice. >> hey. i've been waiting all week to say that. >> glad we could give you the venue. >> but i think the one thing that i think it still needs, the more i talk to people the one question i get what does it do that my smart phone doesn't? i think there is going to need to be that killer app for it, that thing like okay, that is definitely cool and i need that. otherwise it's just going to be -- it's a $350 accessory for your iphone. >> give you a tap if you're
4:52 am
going the wrong way. >> and unlock your hotel room door. >> bridget, let me ask you about this. we talked about -- brett talked about what does it do that my phone doesn't. don't you need the phone for the watch to operate properly? >> you do need the phone. that's no different also from the android smart watches we've seen. to be different, apple needs to show it's more than another way to see a noticecation on your wrist because that's cute but you want to have a reason to pay $350 or more for it. i think what you're going to see that difference is the fact there is that nfc sensor. you can pay with this watch. and you heard in the video you can open up some hotel room doors with just by tapping your wrist to a panel. that's the kind of thing that's going to take us the next step of thinking about a smart watch in a useful way beyond just a new way to send a text or talk to siri. >> what about the battery life? people wonder what do i have
4:53 am
here? >> the battery -- sorry. with the battery it looks like you have to recharge this thing at least overnight. but apple's not saying exactly yet because it hasn't come out yet. >> that's the one missing detail that we don't have is they are not talking about. granted, this is a prototype but i find it concerning they are not saying, and unlike our competitor's watch this will last 24 hours, or 48 hours on a charge. this is an issue people have with smart watches is it is a device that needs to be charged. like when you're out and about your smart phone dice and you end up like me with the giant battery back pack on it. you aren't going to want to do that. >> a few months from christmas will this be out in time for the holiday season? >> no. i think they are going to miss the christmas window this year. they are noting specific about when it's going to ship next year, only that it will be available sometime next year. i think it has a little more
4:54 am
work to be done under the hood. i think they are having technology issues getting all of that stuff squeezed into a small space. this is apple. they have you know, they managed to make everything that they make something that we absolutely have to have. >> except left-handed people. >> yes. yes. >> bridge et, this is only for folks that use the right hand to turn the dial. >> actually they are going to make it sow can flip it around. like how your smart phone screen will flip. i heard that it will work on left-handed wrists. you don't have to worry about that. >> that's good to know. >> good to have both of you. >> thank you both. we'll talk to you in a bit. at least to bridget about the security of all of this, too. you talk about tapping and hey, let's pay for this, some are leary. >> scan your wrist. >> in a few minutes we are expecting to hear from america's top diplomat secretary of state john kerry in cairo right now rallying support for the fight

5:01 am
>> grab the coffee, oj, whatever it is that gets you going and stick with us for a while. we'll get you informed. >> 8:00 here on the east coast and this is "new day saturday." we're awaiting comments from the secretary of state john kerry, he is in cairo. he was in turkey yesterday building this coalition. especially in the neighborhood, let's say. people there who are in close proximity to this fight against isis in iraq and syria, he has said that it would be not a good idea, to bring iran into this conversation, at least publicly. we'll talk about this in the neighborhood there will be some role for iran to play even if they are not part of this coalition. >> formally. right. it has a lot of people as they have been saying for a long time where are the arab nations and will they be part of this coalition. secretary of state is coming before congress, remember, on tuesday to detail the obama administration's strategy to degrade, dismantle and
5:02 am
ultimately destroy isis and that is a quote. >> before he heads to the capital there, he is in cairo this morning as we said working to build this international coalition against isis. and while secretary kerry says the u.s. is not at war with isis others say yes, the u.s. is at war with isis. >> our objective is clear. >> reporter: as the president and his team piece together a strategy to fight isis they are getting tripped up by one word. is this war? >> is the united states, is at war with isil in the same way with al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates around the globe. >> reporter: what with ever it's called concern about terrorism shot up in recent months. we asked carol doherty from the pew research center why american public opinion is volatile. >> it's a moving target.
5:03 am
isis has gone from not being on the public's radar to front and center for the public in a very short period of time. >> reporter: in august a poll showed 67% considered it a major threat. a new cnn poll shows 76% of americans want more air strikes over isis targets. but doherty, pew's political research director says -- >> the public does set limits even with the rising concern about isis, about terrorism, 60% of cnn's poll said no ground troops. >> reporter: like gary. >> okay with them having to drop bombs. boots on the ground is not okay. >> reporter: theresa from pittsburgh. >> i think they need to get involved. i don't know to what extent. that's kind of a touchy subject. >> reporter: and thomas from washington. >> i go along with obama, i agree no boots on the ground. i don't think there is a direct threat from isis now but i think
5:04 am
there will be eventually. >> along with elise with secretary kerry in cairo. elise, let's talk to you first here. what's kerry likely to tell lawmakers? how is he going to get them on board with this coalition? >> well, i don't think it's a really hard sell, christi and victor. you heard a lot of congressmen not only in the republican party but also democrats saying this is a big threat, obviously the gruesome beheading of the two american journalists show that the group is a threat to u.s. interests. i think what secretary kerry will do which is to lay out the strategy a little bit more detail that president obama did in terms of how he is going about assembling an international coalition, as you know yesterday he announced retired general john allen who will be coordinating this international effort, so he'll
5:05 am
talk about that. he'll talk about who might be supportive of that. and he'll talk about some of the areas that they want to focus on. not just military campaign. that's what everybody is focused on. this is a multifaceted strategy which will include obviously cracking down on the foreign financing giving the money to recruit fighters and sustain itself. and also cutting down on the flow of foreign fighters. lastly, this is also a messaging campaign. so he wants to explain how he is asking the international community to use their religious leaders, arab media, everyone they can to send the message that the u.s. is united with the international community against isis. >> let's talk more about this event on tuesday with congress and go to erin pike. we hear from politicians that they don't govern by polls but what could be the impact of these polls that show that a strong majority of americans support air strikes to fight isis?
5:06 am
>> what we're seeing is that what the administration is doing is tracking closely with public opinion. as the piece pointed out it shows clearly that americans do want to see more air strikes against isis targets but they don't want boots on the ground. as i talked to people yesterday that's the same thing we're hearing. i will point out to you that this doesn't break down along party lines. we've been hearing the last couple weeks that democrats want to see more action and i would point out that senator bill nelson from florida who has been on our air in the past couple weeks, he offered legislation authorizing air strikes well ahead of any request from president obama and also senator kay hagan up for re-election in north carolina, just this year. she said a couple weeks ago at the top of the debate that the president needs to do something so. we're seeing a lot of movement that americans do want air strikes and they want something to be done against isis but they don't want a protracted war.
5:07 am
>> erin mcpike and elise, thank you. president obama insists as we've been talking about no u.s. boots on the ground in syria. >> instead he is relying on potential air strikes and arming and training syrian rebels in the fight against isis. listen to what the president said when he addressed the nation. >> across the border in syria we ramped up assistance to the syrian opposition. tonight i call on congress again to give us additional authorities and resources to train and equip these fighters. >> a question that keeps coming up, though, is can the so-called moderate rebels take on isis effectively even with u.s. help? andrew joins us now, he is the next generation fellow in the program on arab politics at the washington institute. also the author of "in the lion's den," washington's battle with syria. >> we have retired major general
5:08 am
paul eden, commanding general. he was a commanding jenin in the military assistance training team in iraq. that's where i want to start and i want to start with you, general, about training the free syrian army and training these moderate rebels. explain for us the challenges the u.s. faces in arming and training, that's good news from saudi arabia that at least it can happen there. but what is the u.s. up against? >> well, the real issue in working with disparate groups is find out who is in charge. and to make sure that you've got the loyalties of the people you really need on the ground. this isis represents a vital national interest to the countries that border the countries syria and iraq. it represents a conditional interest to the united states. in that light, we are absolutely well poised to identify the leadership of the disparate groups that we need to help and the countries we need to help and provide them the military
5:09 am
expertise and equipment that they need to prosecute the mission. >> andrew, you know, one of the things i think that was most alarming this week were the reports that initially they suspected 10,000 isis fighters. that is now three times that. they are anticipating there are 30,000 isis fighters. do you believe that number is an expansion that isis has been able to procure in the last several months, or was our intelligence just wrong from the git-go? >> hard to say exactly. but i think what has occurred in this you know, backed up by scholars as well, is that as isis advanced into various sunni areas in sunni and iraq they rolled a lot of roll people and people who were coming under fire by the isis regime into their ranks and that's the way they have been bandwagoning. they have a ruthless way of administering justice but also have, are able to attract more
5:10 am
and more fighters among their ranks, that's something that the united states needs to degrade. >> so general, one of the challenges when you flood an area with resources, with the weapons, there is a chance they could end up in the hands of the enemy. we saw that many isis fighters are fighting iraqi soldiers with items that they stole or took from other iraqi soldiers. so how do you control or prevent these weapons from getting into the hands of isis members? >> what we really need do is provide the command and control and direct the training of the command and control forces on the ground, so well led, well organized, and well equipped soldiers who feel that they are legitimate actors on behalf of a legitimate government, will not surrender their arms, they will fight and they will fight
5:11 am
successfully. and the problem that we've had with the iraqi soldiers is that these young men did not feel that they were legitimate actors, acting on a legitimate mission on behalf of a legitimate government. all that's got to be turned around and that's part of the political effort that we see on the ground now. >> so andrew, just last month president obama told "the new york times" arming the syrian rebels to defeat president al assad was a fantasy. several months ago he called isis a jv team. now we hear him say we are at war with isis. how much does the political climate do you think dictate what the president does? >> yeah, i think tremendously so. particularly on syria. syria's not something the president handles well at all. you can even see that in the speech. i think he is now in his sort of george bush 2006 moment where he has to turn things around and
5:12 am
the decisions on syria in terms of arming the rebels, were particularly his. >> so general, let me ask you this. the training that has to happen as i mentioned a moment ago that saudi arabia, the kingdom, has allowed for some of the training to happen there. u.s. troops, american troops will be there training? >> i would expect that u.s. troops, particularly our special forces, will be involved in providing the training. but developing soldiers is -- you develop soldiers physically, give them military skill sets but you've got to go after the moral component. that's the heart of the matter and that's the legitimacy issue i brought up that we need to get these fighters to feel that they believe in their chain of command, that they have a chain of command that's clearly identified, and that they are legitimate actors on behalf of a legitimate mission. >> general, i ask you the question about the u.s. special forces training, i'm glad you confirmed that or at least your
5:13 am
belief that they would. because isis could then just take the fight across the border, clearly this group does not respect geopolitical borders, they could take this into saudi arabia, right? no boots on the ground in syria, but this is a group that could go to where this training is happening. is that a credible concern? >> that is indeed the vital national interest of the countries that surround syria and iraq. these countries have got to understand that they are part of the coalition that must contain isis first, reduce the pocket, reduce the terrain that they now occupy, and ultimately destroy them. what we hear a little less about is this anti-ideology, anti-isis ideology campaign plan to frustrate this recruitment going on now that is bringing in the fighters into the area. that's got to stop as well.

5:20 am
adrian peterson's attorney is defending him with this statement. he writes adrian is a loving father, he used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son, he used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east texas and then the statement goes on to say, it is important to remember that adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury. again, the attorney for peterson underscoring the point he has been cooperating with the investigation. even before he was indicted by this grand jury. we haven't heard from adrian himself. but we did see one tweet that peterson posted yesterday a couple hours before this news broke and there was a quote god has you covered. that's really all we heard from peterson. >> thank you so much. sarah palin in the news again and it's a pretty wild story involving alcohol and a

5:26 am
eric thompson who told this to abc news. >> bristol just reached back and started clocking him and she hit him, reached way back here and caught him in the chin like you know, i counted at least six times. >> sarah palin then herself according to witnesses got involved, and tried to get into the middle of the brawl, and was screaming and yelling. >> reporter: cnn cannot independently confirm that the palins were involved in the melee but the police say the family was there, telling us just before midnight anchorage police responded to report of a verbal and physical altercation taking place between multiple subjects outside of a residence. alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident. some of the palin family members were in attendance. the palin family has not commented on the alleged incident despite cnn's numerous attempts to reach out to them.
5:27 am
sarah palin did post on her facebook page the next day but made no mention of the party. she says, i was traveling yesterday, so i'm posting todd's 50th birthday greeting a day late. which is fine because the handsome guy barely looks a day over 50. anchorage police tell us at the time of the incident none of the involved parties wanted to press charges, and no arrests were made. suzanne malveaux, cnn, washington. >> you expect to get vie va husband is at a party like that. who knows. blogger amanda coyne will join us. so hope you'll be here for that. >> as the investigation sparked by joan rivers' death continues major changes for the man who treated the late comedienne. >> president obama doubling down on isis. is his plan to beat back the terror group, though, even legal some are asking?

later. >> two, in ukraine two residential homes were hit after the airport came under artillery fire. this according to ukraine's counter terrorism office. attackers used missile launcher systems. a russian convoy carrying humanitarian aid entered ukraine without permission. russia media report more than 200 trucks headed for luhansk. >> police are now in a massive manhunt in northeast pennsylvania. this comes after what authorities describe as an ambush by a shooter at a state police barracks. this comes after an operation. law enforcement helicopters from new york and new jersey are part of this search scouring the area. >> number four, u.s. secretary of state john kerry in egypt right now, going to be meeting leaders of the arab league in cairo to discuss isis. he has been visiting arab countries this week, obviously to build support for president obama's strategy to combat the
5:33 am
terror group there. >> secretary kerry says she quote taken aback by slain journalist james foley's mother's comments. foley was beheaded in the video posted on the internet and foley's mother says the u.s. government did not do enough to bring him back home. as president obama dives into the fight against isis things are getting quite complicated, particularly in syria. under the president's plan the u.s. will carry out air strikes against the terror group there and the free syrian army will be trained and equipped to try to beat back isis on the ground. but it's how the president is justifying this military ax that is raising big questions among people. >> joining us democratic strategist hilary rosen and national correspondent for the daily beast eli lake. good to have you both. eli, i'll start with you.
5:34 am
you say the president's approach may in fact be illegal. explain why. >> well, the justification that they are now saying they have for the broader campaign against isis is an authorization for the use of military force that's been used by both george w. bush and president obama, as the justification to attack al qaeda and its affiliates. at one point isis was al qaeda in iraq, today it's not only formally broken with al qaeda, isis fighters have attacked al qaeda's franchise in syria. so, a lot of legal scholars that i talked to and they have since written in their own blog posts have said that this is a huge stretch to say a war against isis effectively a group at war with al qaeda can be justified by an authorization that kind of created the war on terror,
5:35 am
particularly on al qaeda. >> hillary, your response. >> i'm not a lawyer but a lawyer would say you have to have a plaintiff. the plaintiff would be congress. congress doesn't seem to want to make this decision for the president. in fact, the leaders of congress have said repeatedly that the president has this authority to go forward. and i think the question so really isn't does the president have the authority, it's really should he take this authority and what is congress's role? i think that congress should vigorously debate this. i find a kind of appalling that the congress is nowhere to be found here. we have individual senators like dianne feinstein who have engaged but most of the rest of congress is just pulling back and sort of lobbing in their opinions instead of having a robust debate about a serious issue on the floor of the house and the senate. >> what do you think about that, eli? is the president in not calling
5:36 am
repeatedly for a vote on this giving them a pass? yeah, we're a couple months out from the midterms, but what do you think? where is congress on this? >> the president hasn't said that he needs a vote from congress to authorize military strikes. that was the approach he took last year when bashar al assad crossed his red line and used chemical weapons against many civilians outside of damascus. this time, and he then even said he asserted he had this authority. here's the problem. president obama campaigned for the office in 2008, as a constitutional law professor, it was wary of expansive claims of wartime authorities by a president, particularly george w. bush. so if he had been consistent and said listen, i think the constitution says i have an obligation as president to protect the united states, and protect the u.s. interests and i'm going to wage the war under those authorities, which is traditionally a fairly
5:37 am
conservative argument it would be one thing. this is a president that asked congress to taylor or possibly phase out the very authorization that he's using for this new war. so it's true that members of congress have not been very keen to vote on this and largely supported action against isis but it's immaterial to the question of the president himself and the precedent he is setting right now. in a lot of ways this is somebody who came into office saying he took the constitution very seriously, and particularly the war-making powers of the presidency very seriously, and for many of his supporters on the civil libertarian side he made a mockery of those things. >> he mentions the consistency of the president. we know that several months ago he called isis a jv team. we know that now he is saying we are at war with isis. how much do you think does the political climate dictate what the president does at this point? >> you know, i think if the
5:38 am
political climate were making the president's decisions for him he would be acting very differently. he would be more of a war monger, he would act more aggressively because something like 70% of the country now concerned about isis or isil. and i think you would see a lot more rhetoric from the president if that's the kind of guy he was. you know, one thing that is kind of troubling to some democrats, though, is that this notion of are we defining a new war? you know, we spent a lot of years talking about the difference between a war on terror and a war, and really resisted the bush administration's enthusiasm for the war on terror. and i do think that we have to be careful. i think, i agree partly with what eli is saying but for a different reason. it's not that i don't think the president has the authority to act, it's that i'm pleased that he is acting with some caution, that they are being deliberate,
5:39 am
that they are not listening to folks like john mccain who would have us go in full scale invasion. so i think that's really the bigger question. doesn't matter whether we're calling this a war on terror or whether we're using other rhetoric. what matters is are we engaging in something where there is a specific goal and ability to achieve that goal. allies who agree with us. and things other than simply force that will get to the right solution. >> yeah, end game. we appreciate both of you. thanks for being here. all right. so, some hype. >> a little. a little bit of hype. >> around apple's new mobile payment system. >> basically lets you use your phone like a credit card. it's cool. here's the question. is it safe? >> that's the important one. mu. fun, right? welllllllll, not when your travel rewards card

5:44 am
bridget, i wanted to start with you and ask, it seems like it's easy but really how will this thing work? >> it actually is pretty easy like it looks. so, what you'll do is load up your credit card info for one time on the phone, and then when you approach a payment terminal that accepts apple pay, which is several places right now including macy's, mcdonald's, disney world, you'll approach and simply take your phone out, hold your finger on the fingerprint scanner and voila it's done. you don't even have to unlock the phone. when it approaches it knows that you're about to pay for something. so, you put your phone back in the purse and you're done. >> as a concern as we highlighted is the safety, also the security, the cloud has been hacked. so i don't even know how awe hack a cloud. the cloud has been hacked. how safe are our credit cards, how safe is our information? >> well, it's interesting because you have to ask how safe
5:45 am
compared to what? so what's nice about this system is that it doesn't actually transmit your credit card data back to the person you're paying with. it uses a portion of it to create what's called a harbor a digital encrypted segment. that's what gets transmitted. so in that way it's more secure. where the vulnerability lies is when you actually put your credit card number into the phone. so, that's where you have the vulnerability. but, if you do it right, the biometric, that is the fingerprint scanner on your phone acts as a security device. if you do it right. if you do it wrong, you have vulnerability. >> bridget, you mentioned, some of the names that are with this. i think discover said something about being in talks with apple. disney, macy's, starbucks, nike, staples. you hear those and think okay, it's got to be secure to some degree. you would assume. but my question is how many people do you think will be willing, bridge ept, to just
5:46 am
give up all of that information? >> i think we do have some trust issues when you hear about hacking in the news all the time. but when you hear about how it works and apple put a lot of stress on the security side, that is interesting. and if people understand that i think they will want to use it. in a theoretical situation if you had another hack like home depot or target they never would have had your info to begin with if they used apple pay so it wouldn't have been useful for the hackers to get that one time use code that is stored so they never would have had that. i think that's interesting. we're still going to carry around our wallets. not every store is going to have these. you'll maybe think about using it more. >> it's interesting i thought my cell phone made my watch obsolete, now the watch is trying to make my wallet obsolete. mark, do you think this is going to revolutionize payment? is it going to pak the wallet objects sfleet >> i think so. i hate to make these predictions far into the future.
5:47 am
you've got a device you're carrying that has -- that will have a biometric reader so it provide that security. it has the ability to transmit data digitally so you can buy stuff in person is going to be just like buying online. you'll be able to use this as a payment system. and it has the ability to take in token. all of the things in your wallet are tokens. these will be digital and locked a lot more securely than when in your wallet. >> bridget and mark, we appreciate both of you being here. thank you. disney has something like that too when you go to the park. they give you a bracelet, you get in, it's pretty cool. >> now carry one with you. if it really works the way people expect. >> so we also want to let you know we're continuing to monitor the comments from secretary of state john kerry. there he is in cairo with the egyptian foreign minister. we're monitoring this and will get you the highlights of this in a moment.
