for team owners, this as ray rice appeals this domestic violence punishment. off-the-field happenings taking center stage could cost the nfl big. good morning, welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm christine romans. the general of joint chiefs of staff martin dempsey say he's open to putting u.s. forces on the ground this time to fight isis. dempsey saying iraq is capable of battling against islamic rebels. the president has ruled out putting boots on the ground. but dempsey testified yesterday, opening a surprise amount of daylight between he and his boss. >> it's a generational problem.
and we should expect that our enemies will adapt their tactics as we adjust our approach. my view at this point is that this coalition is the appropriate way forward. i believe that will prove true. but if it fails to be true and if there are threats to the united states, then i, of course, will go back to the president and make a recommendation that may include the use of u.s. ground forces. >> if, if and then may, those are caveats there. the white house has renewed the decision not to put boots on the ground calling dempsey's response hypothetical. >> with moderate syrian rebels fighting the assad regime. republicans calling it snad quit and many warning that arms could eventually end up being used against the united states. even show, the authorization is expected to pass the house before heading to the senate later this week.
also this morning, the president is in tampa, part of his effort to drum up public support for the fight against isis. he arrived tuesday night shaking hands with u.s. troops there. later today, he will be briefed on the battle strategy against militants. and secretary of state john kerry secretary of state kerry appears before the foreign relations committee to discuss the isis plans. and isis is pointing its nose to the coalition appointed to fight it. isis sympathizers have been goading the u.s.-led coalition with tweets like this we welcome america into syria with open arms and ans explosive belt. the downing of a syrian fighter jet that has not yet been yintly concerned, iraq's foreign minister met tuesday with bashar
al assad. going to jomana karadsheh live in baghdad where u.s. air strikes are escalating. joe pl jomana, what is the assessment there? >> when it comes to air strikes, christine, everyone is welcoming this. there say difference to the area where is the air strikes have been taking place, facilitating and making it easier for to combat forces and make advances there. but when it comes to talking about u.s. troop presence mere, the reaction mostly from iraqi officials, yes, they do want to see more advisers, more trainers here because there is that commission, realization, that iraqi troops are not ready nor capable of doing this on their own with air strikes. that's not going to be enough. they need more training and advising and, thus, that cannot happen without more american advisers on the ground.
iraqis say as long as this is not a mill attention presence, they do not want to see a u.s. occupation as they describe it. what we've seen in the past couple days is reaction from the iranian-backed shia militias. if you recall, during the presence of u.s. militants here in the past, these militants are accused of carrying out deadly attacks targeting u.s. military forces. and the reaction so far, very similar rhetoric from what we've been hearing from iran. the u.s. is using isis as a pretext to reoccupy iraq be these are the words of shia claire al sadr. and so there is word about the safety of these trainers on the ground. when you hear something like this something an adviser told me and iraqi expert saying this is what happens when you sideline iran here. it could use its proxies here to
sabotage the military efforts towards isis. >> so many moving parts. jomana karadsheh, thank you so much. >> we mentioned concerns over the fact that weapons for the moderate syrian rebels could eventually end up being used against american troops but there are warnings of other ways this effort could be complicated. arizona john mccain blasted the administration's plan during joint chairman dempsey's testimony on tuesday. >> you'd think that these people you're training will only go back to fight against isil? do you really believe that general? >> we do not have to deal with it now. >> what the senator was talking about there was the idea that the moderate syrian rebels would actually prefer to be fighting against bashar al assad would not use the training and weapons that the u.s. gives to fight against isis. the speaker of the parliament had a similar warning about insurgents fighting this
government. he claims a solid moderate rebel sold the american hostage to isis. he said there's nothing to stop the rebels from doing the same with the weapons they get from the united states. one of the interesting things, he's sending a letter to leaders. an upstate new york man will be in new york charged with plotting to kill. prosecutors in new york say the third a naturalized u.s. citizen from yemen, attempted to buy guns from undercover agents to carry out his deadly plan. >> he expressed on numerous occasions his interest in killing american servicemen as they're returning from the war zones. he also spoke about also hurting members of the shia muslim community here in rochester. >> and grand jury indictment handed up tuesday. he's also charged with recruit for isis.
his attorney is expected to enter a not guilty plea. >> the united nationsade $1 billion is needed now to battle the ebola virus. urging that they need field hospitals and other supplies. in the house there appears to be widespread support for president broc's $88 million request. the president expected to ask congress for another $500 million for his plan today. meanwhile, dr. kent brantly will testify at a hearing today. he's warning lawmakers there's no time to waste. a sentiment echoed by the president. >> it is a fire. it is a fire straight from the pit of hell. we cannot fool ourselves into thinking that the vast mode of the atlantic ocean will protect us from the flames of this fire. >> it's spiraling out of control. it is getting worse. it's spreading faster and exponentially. this is an epidemic that is not
just a threat to regional security. i's a potential threat to global security. if these countries break down. if their economies break down. if people panic. >> so the president is launching a very big effort here to battle ebola. planning to send 3,000 u.s. troops to west africa, along with materials to field hospitals additional health care workers, medical supplies. there is some hopeful news from the national institutes of health. the first human trial of an ebola vaccine developed by the drug make glaxosmithkline is producing no adverse effects in the ten volunteers. what it means it didn't cause any side effects which is a good sign. two administration whistle-blowers set to testify before the house committee on veterans affairs. these two doctors say the inspector general downplayed the delays and deaths at va medical centers. reports earlier this year led to
the resignation of the va secretary eric shinseki. cnn first brought you the story that 40 veterans died after waiting for medical care in phoenix. community action is to let house committee hold hearings this morning on the killing of chris stevens and three others as well. on tuesday, a report containing a point-by-point rebuttal to anticipated republican attacks. breaking news this morning, the vikings banning adrian peterson from all people activities. allegations of child abuse now forcing him from the field. a late-night reversal of a reversal. >> wow, whiplash, money talks i think. plus, a manhunt to find a suspected cop killer. investigators say he could strike again. we'll have that next. why do we clean?

under this independence thing. >> reporter: i think this is a huge thing for the queen. she only came close commenting. she cannot get involved in politics. but she did say to a church gore recently she really hope that scots consider this. you can imagine there was a very big british empire. empires come and go. and the empire's been cut back, of course. but now you're talking about home turf. and her home state being split. i think she's pretty concerned about this. we have to say in all essence, we're not talking about her role but the yes campaign they do want to keep her as head of state. a breakup of the uk it's a huge moment in british history. >> to would be colossal, after 300 years that vote is tomorrow. if they do vote to split it would take 18 months. max, thank you so much.
harvard economist ken rowbuck telling three az currency. >> what currency do you have. it's one of the first questions people will have, it's one of the first questions investors have. say say it's the pound. the british say it's not the pound people say maybe scotland with the euro, creates a lot of problems for the rest of the eurozone. and they could have their own currency but that's not a magic elixir when you don't have long-teller credibility. >> rogoff a yes vote could be. good in the long run, maybe a hundred years but the short term is the concern. he said basically it would be a mild negative for the uk and very big negative for scotland. he also said, look, when americans say why does this matter to me, why do i care? because the uk and u.s. have the strongest alliance in the world.
and is this our best friend breaking apart. >> it has huge implications for international relations as well. >> to say nothing of america's nuclear position in northern europe, it's in scotland. >> fascinating. it will all be decided tomorrow. 27 minutes after the hour. could u.s. troops end up fighting on the ground against isis? a new warning from a top u.s. general as there is skepticism now about the president's plan to battle the terrorists. we're live next. . at lysol, we go beyond cleaning, we call it healthing. healthing is killing germs, and having more cleaning power than bleach without the harshness. it's being the #1 pediatrician recommended brand. and sharing healthy habits in 65,000 schools. lysol. start healthing.

require that u.s. troops be put in iraq to defeat isis. the chairman raised concerns that half of iraq's army is incapable of partnering effectively with troops in the battle against u.s. militants. >> now, the president has said he would not use ground troops in iraq for combat. but general dempsey appearing from the senate armed services committee tuesday said if the situation changed it could be a possibility. >> this would require a sustained effort over a sustained period of time. it's a generational problem. and we should expect that our enemies will adapt their tactics as we adjust our approach. my view at this point is that this coalition is the appropriate way forward. i believe that will prove true. but if it fails to be true, and if there are threats to the united states, then i, of course, would go back to the president and make a recommendation that may include the use of u.s. military ground forces. >> a white house spokesman later reiterated the president's
determination not to employee ground troops for combat calling the general's remarks hypothetical. meanwhile, the u.s. house is scheduled to vote on the president's plan to arm and train moderate syrian rebels fighting isis. the plan is drawing fire from both sides. republicans calling it inadequate and democrats warn that the arms could be used against the u.s. even though, the authorization is expected to pass the house before heading to the senate later in the week. also this morning, the president is in tampa for a visit for u.s. central command as part of his effort to drum up support for the fightence isis. he arrived tuesday night shaking hands with troops. later today, he'll be there. and secretary of state john kerry appears to explain the president's plan. >> isis remaining defiant in the face of 40-nation international coalition to vote it. so far, the suts only kol six outside of iraq and syria who

very well strikes have been taking place since they started august 8th mostly focused in the more than part of the country. but what we have seen over the past couple of days increased strikes taking place very close to baghdad. about 22 miles from here. and this really is also a broadening of the scope of the mission. earlier when this mission started it was humanitarian intervention, and it was to protect u.s. personnel and u.s. facilities here. but this is what president obama was talk about. that they want to try and enable iraqi security forces to go on the offensive. and what we are seeing is this does help them. in the areas where these air strikes have been taking place. for example, southwest of baghdad. this has been a really problematic area where we have seen intensified fighting taking place between iraqi security forces and isis militants there for the past couple of months. and what these iraqi grounds fors really lack is precision air strikes. that air cover that they do not
really have. so this kind of support they are getting does allow them and enable them to go on the offensive, as u.s. officials put it. but the real test, john is going to be whether these iraqi forces are going to be able to recapture territory on their own. and hold it. that's going to be the real challenge. >> it's the beginning of the next phase. the question is how far will it go and will it require greater u.s. involvement either from the air or from the ground. jomana karadsheh from baghdad, thank you. there are warnings now of other ways the effort could back fire. arizona senator john mccain blasting the administration's plan during joint chiefs chairman martin dempsey tuesday. he said the weapons would be used against the al assad government first and foremost, not isis. >> do you think these people
