unlikely case of ebola. >> we did not receive any type of emergency equipment. >> ebola fear escalating as a deputy sheriff who initially entered the apartment where dallas ebola patient thomas eric duncan was staying before it was sanitized started experiencing some ebola-like symptoms wednesday. he told cnn affiliate wfaa friday, he thought he may have come in contact with the virus. >> touched doors and lights. >> according to the cdc, ebola can't live on surfaces for more than just a few hours and mondayic said he was in the apartment several days after duncan had already been admitted to the hospital. a state hospital said we know he didn't have direct contact with duncan and he doesn't have a fever. in a situation like that there is not a risk of ebola. >> we're taking several actions to make sure that the public health safety and welfare is protected. >> the deputy sheriff was transported to the same hospital
where duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with ebola in the u.s., died early wednesday. >> today we're saddened by the death of the patient in dallas. >> some community leaders are questioning duncan's care. >> he was in the same. >> admitted september 28th, duncan was in his medication. after the university of nebraska on monday, and right away, doctors gave him an experimental anti-viral medication. he also received blood donation from american survivor dr. kent brantley. believed to provide antibodies to patients still fighting the disease. duncan never received a donation.
>> while monig is not 48 other contacts, those contacts are being followed closely, monitored by health personnel and so far, none of them have gotten sick. >> thank you. five major u.s. airports are now set to begin screening for ebola starting saturday. all passengers arriving from west africa will be questioned and examined at new york's jfk airport and next week, similar screenings will begin at newark, dulles, o'hare, and hartsfield airport. let's get to our aviation correspondent rene marsh, live from dulles international airport in virginia. what's the reaction so far? do you see any kind of movement toward this? >> well chris we know this morning preparations are under way for that ramped-up security or screening measures that we've been talking about. the focus and the target is going to be people flying from three ebola-impacted countries,
the tougher screening means tougher questions and temperature checks using noncontact thermometers like this one. in just days ramped-up screening of passengers will begin at new york's jfk airport. and expanding to atlanta, newark, chicago, and here at washington, d.c. dulles. the five airports receive about 95% of the 150 passengers arriving in the u.s. every day from ebola hot spots. guinea, liberia and sierra leone. under the new screening measures, all passengers traveling from those countries will have their temperatures checked with a laser thermometer. no touching necessary, just held close to the forehead. a new cdc questionnaire must also be filled out upon landing. >> there's a 21-day incubation period. people may not have a fever when they're passing through the airport and invariably when a case comes through, we had a
temperature screening set up, why did this happen? because it's not a foolproof way of preventing ebola from coming into the country. >> similar screen something in place in west africa, but the goal of the new u.s. checks is to identify passengers airport officials missed or who developed symptoms while traveling. >> this is an additional layer of screening that can be targeted to that small population in a way that will enhance security, but also minimize disruption to the broader traveling public. >> the cdc says one out of 500 travelers coming from west africa getting off of planes, they will have a fever. but most of the time, it is malaria. so they're pretty confident that they're going to detect people with these thermometers who do have a fever. it doesn't necessarily mean it will be ebola. we won't see this rollout of this ramped-up screening until saturday. that's because i'm told these customs and border protection
officers have to be briefed and trained in the new procedures. chris? >> no question they're going to have false positives. you know what they're calling aren't ebola. it will add to time and people will say it's only a half-measure. better than nothing. rene, thank you for the reporting. allison, over to you. let's bring in cnn's national security analyst, juliette kayyem and dr. alexander van tulleken, a senior fellow at the national institute for humanitarian affairs. doctor, let me start with you. mr. duncan who sadly died yesterday. his family, his fiancé, have a lot of questions about his treatment. they want to know why he wasn't given the experimental drug sooner. he had to wait six days before doctors tried that on him. furthermore, he never got a blood transfusion as the american patient in nebraska did. what went wrong? >> i don't think, i think it would be premature to say anything went wrong in that case. what we know is that early
treatment in ebola saves lives and if he had been admitted to hospital earlier, that might well have affected that prognosis. but everything else is experimental and it would be up to the physician's discretion whether or not they thought it would be useful. blood transfusions are not a risk-free procedure, he would have had a blood transfusion from someone who would have survived ebola. >> but dr. kent brantly is is your providing that. >> we have some sorry that the hospital did reach out to nancy writebol who was out of the country. they may have felt it was too time-consuming or the disease was too advanced for that particular way of attacking the virus to work. the virus is still affecting blood vessels and other organs in his body. it may well reveal a bias. i don't get a strong sense here that he has been neglected or not treated well. he did get an experimental drug, they have run out of zmapp.
i think to me the really concerning gap is those four days when he wasn't admitted. >> before i bring in juliette, i have another question about the sheriff's deputy who went into mr. duncan's apartment. that sheriff's deputy woke up yesterday feeling sore, feeling fatigued with a stomach ache. do you think he was exposed to ebola? >> it seems to me extremely unlikely that he would have caught ebola from what happened. but i think he was exposed to a risk would be fair to say and i think the way that that was handled, there did not seem to be a protocol, there didn't seem to be clear advice, that didn't seem to be a decision-making pathway that said it was safe to go in there. he may be manifesting symptoms along with an extreme amount of worry about this. it shows a failure in the decision-making process. >> there were failures in the safety precautions when he went into the apartment. let's listen to the sheriff's department and why they're so
concerned today. >> we did not receive any type of emergency equipment. >> we touched doors, touched lights to turn on lights. that sort of thing leaves question marks in your mind. when you go home the next day, you start hearing that equipment is being quarantined or asked to be bagged up. >> they touched doors, they touched lights, they didn't have any sort of safety equipment. what do you make of that? just consistent failures in the texas response. including protecting our first responders. which is of primary importance, how can we expect them to go into the next patient and there will be a next patient if we can't protect them and just the sort of casualness by which texas handled the entire case. you know the good news is, it's just a case of one. we've learned a lot of lessons. but agree with alexander that one of the consequences of not protecting our first responders is going to be these worried well. lots of people coming in.
they probably don't have ebola coming into hospital rooms, but they're going to sort of overwhelm the system in ways, much more so than ebola. we saw this of course with the anthrax attacks immediately after 2001. many more worried well than there were actual anthrax patients. >> you're nodding, doctor? >> i'm speaking to colleagues in hospitals all over the city and they know we've got flu season coming and people are going to be worried about this. and we've got a real issue where hospitals are now circulating protocols, people are aware of the kind of things they need to be doing. they need to be doing dress rehearsals in protective gear. >> airport screenings will be at major airports, here in jfk and starting on saturday. are these the answer? >> there's going to be no perfect answer except for killing off this virus. so the way to think about it is layers of security. some are going to look like scalpels and some are going to look like hatchets. some will be big, like screenings at airports that
cover 95% of the travel from west africa. some will be the kind of surveillance we've seen coming out of the texas case and the other potential exposure cases, none are going to be perfect. this is what the cdc is trying to say to the public that may be clamoring for a travel ban. the travel ban is essentially sort of a side issue. it is not going to solve both the security crisis, let alone the public health crisis going on in west africa. you have to view it as many options. many sort of policies and procedures will be put in place. but someone will get through, even these screening measures, just given the nature of the ebola threat. we have to be prepared on the response side. >> yes. ominous warning, but very practical. juliette kayyem, dr. van tulleken, thank you so much for the information this morning. breaking overnight in st. louis, another fatal police shooting has outraged a community that's already on edge. overnight, an angry crowd gathered near the scene where police say an off-duty officer
exchanged fire with a teenager, before killing him. the incident comes two months after the michael brown shooting in nearby ferguson, missouri. in both cases, the officer is white, the dead teen, black. but in this case, the police say the teen fired first. rosa flores is here with more. rosa? >> chris, good morning. tensions are high in st. louis, and so are emotions. this time, police are describing a very different shooting scene. when compared to the michael brown case. police say this teen suspect was not only armed, he fired the first shot. overnight, protests erupt in st. louis. angry residents charging at police. kicking at police cars, shattering windows and shouting for police to leave their neighborhood. this, after an 18-year-old black man was shot and killed by an
off-duty st. louis police officer wednesday night. according to the st. louis police department, the 32-year-old officer, a white male and a six-year veteran of the force, was off-duty in uniform working for a security agency on neighborhood patrol, when he saw a black man running from the officer. he said then fired shots at the officer. >> the individual times.
was shot two months ago and just ahead of a weekend of resistance in st. louis. where activists will push for a movement in the investigation into that case. all this as demonstrators continue in a community already reeling and seeking answers to another young man's death. police say no looting has occurred and police officers are offering much restraint as protesters confront them face to face. chris? >> sad commentary when looting is the bar of community relations, there's no question that there's a lot to be resolved there. let's go over to michaela. >> good morning, here's a look at your headlines, an embarrassing new revelation surrounding the 2012 secret service prostitution scandal.
despite repeated denials by the obama administration, the "washington post" reports a white house aide had a prostitute staying with him at his hotel during president obama's trip to colombia. and that senior officials were told about it. according to that report, the aide now works full time at the state department and his father is a prominent democratic donor. police in pennsylvania revealing the contents of a chilling handwritten note, series of them, apparently left behind in the woods by suspected cop killer eric frein. the notes describe the ambush of two state troopers last month. here is an excerpt. friday, september 12th, got a shot around 11:00 p.m., he took it. he dropped, i took a follow-up shot on his head-neck area, he was still and quiet after that frein remains at large. where is kim jong-un, the north korean leader has not been spotted in a month. all eyes will be on a key political event tomorrow to see
if he shows up. if he doesn't go, it will likely fuel further speculation over his health and future leadership of that country. here's a question for you this morning -- who would you cast for the "ghostbusters" reboot? the long-awaited third installment of the film franchise is now confirmed. the director of "bridesmaids" says it will star hilarious women. original ghostbusters star bill murray loves that idea. suggesting kristen wiig and melissa mccarthy would be perfect. >> aren't they just great, being together this. >> comedy genius. >> you ever get little kristen wiig comparisons? >> i've never gotten it. but i see it. when i see her, i sometimes see it. >> not so much with the humor part, but i'm saying just in the looks a little bit. melissa mccarthy is great in everything. you need her to be in there.
but you need somebody to play the geeky genius. >> sandra bullock. and so, sandra bullock. >> she's always in those -- she does a good straight-face kind of delivery. >> you're welcome, hollywood. i want to ask you at home. get online, on facebook and let us know what you think -- who should be the actresses cast in the leading roles? >> thanks, michaela. a dramatic plea from the mother of an american hostage being held by isis, reaching out directly to the terror group's leader, asking to speak with him. will her plea have any impact? and excalibur, the dog of the nurse in spain, did he have to die? spanish officials euthanized the 12-year-old rescue dog owned by that family because they, she was infected with ebola. they were worried about the dog. hundreds of thousands signed a petition to stop them from putting the dog down. did they go too far in the name
border town of kobani continues to dangle by a thread and nearby turkey totally equipped, but doing nothing to stop it. let's bring in james jeffrey. the former u.s. ambassador to turkey and iraq, now a distinguished visiting fellow at the washington institute. certainly you understand the politic there is very well. thank you very much, ambassador, for joining us, the first question in the news of the day is -- you have to feel for this family. their son went through an islamic conversion and he's a muslim now. they want a meeting. do you think any good could come from any meeting like that. >> chris, i've been in such situations with hostages taken by al qaeda in iraq. the family has to do everything possible to try to get their child back. we all understand that the record of success of such efforts frankly has not been good. >> and what about the safety of the family, the chance that isis
may set something up only to take more people hostage. is there any indication that they would show mercy. have we ever seen that? >> we have not seen mercy from this organization and there is is a dang fer the family were to do this. but once again, in a situation like this, people and i've seen this happen, people are going to do whatever they feel is morally right to try to get their child back. >> there's something about this touching on a different angle. which is often these families don't feel adequately supported by the state department. where they feel, we've heard it in the past, not enough was done to save my son. they're playing the macho politics of not negotiating with people and putting my son or my daughter's life in the balance. do you think it's fair criticism in the situation? >> it's understandable, if not fair. when i was doing this back in iraq and recently, with isis, the u.s. government has done everything up to and including sending hundreds of commandos in to try to rescue these people. but it's never going to be
enough for families and there's one thing they do object to, which is the u.s. government refuses understandably to pay ransom. >> that takes us to the other front on the war. let's stick with the border, the town of kobani, now secretary of state john kerry, other military officials have come out and said, kobani, we don't want them to take it. we don't want them to take anything, but the border is porous and this is not a particularly strategic stronghold. do you agree? >> i do not agree, respectfully this is strategic terrain, it was defended heroically by a force of let's put it, boots on the ground. allied boots on the ground. we provided air support and we didn't succeed. but it's not up to john kerry or me to determine whether this is a strategic victory if it falls to isis, it's up to the people of the middle east. i'm sure they're going to see this as another very significant isis victory and that spells bad news for us.
>> when you say the people of the middle east, what do you mean, the countries that have to decide whether or not to get into the fight or the people thinking whether or not isis is the right side to be on? >> all of the above. it's our job to mobilize the countries, we have not been successful yesterday in mobilizing turkey to take necessary action. although general allen, the president's envoy is in turkey today. and most importantly, the areas that the isis people recruit from, they're going to see this as a dramatic isis victory, despite u.s. air power, that's not good. >> aren't you seeing this population as a little too impressive? i mean the extremist population, if you take all of them together, no matter what name they want to go by, is such a small slice of the overall population of islam, which roundly rejects the extremists. what is the threat of isis getting that much big centre how big can they get? >> the threat is significant. not only in arab countries,
pakistan, afghanistan, but also in turkey. isis resonates among many people. it's not just a tiny slice, the question is will the people actually volunteer? will they actually travel to syria or iraq and fight with is isis? that's based upon whether they think isis is winning or losing, that's why this is so important. >> when we get to the winning or losing of it. someone who could weigh in very heavily. one of the biggest armies in the area is turkey. they've lined up tanks, this is their border. they got the parliamentary authorization to do it. is this about the kurds and them not wanting to help the kurds who are fighting in these border towns? >> chris, with turkey, everything is complicated. it is often an opaque foreign policy. what the turks want is, almost subservience by the kurds, but more importantly, they want the obama administration to engage with them against the assad regime. which is what most of the arab countries want as well, with a
no-fly zone in the north so that turkey doesn't have on top of its current 1.5 million refugees, another two million more. want us to play a role more actively against assad and against isis, we need to listen to them. >> that gets us to the last point, the main point perhaps. which is often it comes down to the deal. general john allen, the coalition coordinator is going to turkey today to try to get support. ha deal has to be on the table if we want to see the turkish military cleaning out their own border. >> we need to push the turks to do more. if not, put troops across the border. artillery fire, allow supplies to go into kobani and others fighting against isis and assad. we need to talk with the turks about what we're going to do against assad. what we're going to do to keep new refugee flows from going into turkey. and what about a no-fly zone. it's not just the turks, the
french and others are looking at this, too. >> we'll have to see what deal is struck. because obviously we need boots on the ground. nobody wants it to be american boots. but that's going to be the only option left if the turks don't get involved. there's somebody else very soon. ambassador, thank you very much. ambassador james jeffrey. always a pleasure to have you on "new day." is it possible for pets to spread the ebola virus? there's outrage today after health officials euthanized a dog belonging to an infected nursing assistant. we'll ask an infectious disease specialist if putting down excalibur, was necessary. and an indiana family is suing police and speaking out to cnn after police smashed in their window and tazed a passenger. you won't want to miss the emotional reaction from that family.
half past the hour, good to have you back with us on "new day." the head of homeland security insisting that isis fighters have not infiltrated the united states through the mexican border. jay johnson blasting california's republican congressman duncan hunter, who is publicly claiming that at least ten isis fighters have been stopped by border patrol agents and more are getting through. >> we're vigilant in looking out for individuals of suspicion that may be crossing our border and we have no specific
intelligence that isil is plotting to come into the homeland through our southern border. but we're constantly on the lookout. >> congressman hunter said he. adrian peterson's trial on a alleged child abuse charge is tentatively scheduled for december 1st. he said he's not looking for a deal and spends to go to trial. the proceedings could be delayed if the texas judge has to recuse himself. judge kelly case is under fire for referring to the prosecutor and defense attorneys as quote, media whores. for the first time since 1872, the u.s. is no longer the world's economic leader, accord together world economic fund. that distinction goes to china.
the china economy is worth $17.6 trillion, compared to $17.4 for u.s. experts say china is on top because it's cheaper to buy good there rather than here in america. would you ever get this close to snap a photo of a great white shark? i see indra nodding her head. have a look at this photo from a new jersey teacher, took it with her go pro, she was in south africa working for an animal conservation group. some shots, there's haters, right? some people saying she put the shark in danger by luring it too close to the metal cage. it could have hurt the shark, but i can't even just get past -- >> the teeth? >> yeah. the gums? those -- razor-sharp jaws. i'm, i'm terrified of this picture. that's way too close for me. my heart would have stopped pounding. >> because of fear for the shark, hurting its poor teeth on the cage.
>> those little metal bars would not be enough. >> i can't even believe it's a real picture. it's scarier than anything we ever saw in jaws. >> what inspires you people, also known as crazies, indra petersons? indra has done this. she looks forward to getting as close to death as possible. what's the intrigue to see how close the big fish can come to eating your face? >> it's so fascinating. >> you know why? >> because i'm crazy? it's amazing, some people are afraid of heights, that, not at all. with that, i don't know, there's something about it, it was unbelievable. you can actually see. i posted photos of this stuff. let's talk about the weekend, we're getting closer, i wish we could be talking about sunshine, but unfortunately we're going to be talking about the threat of more rain as we go closer toward the weekend. desert southwest, we have remnants of simon spreading through colorado today. we have some flooding concerns
in that region. otherwise, it's going to be about the stationary front as a low rides across, so by the time you get to the weekend, pretty much anyone from the midwest to the northeast is going to be talking about light showers out there. so day by day, talking about around missouri, back in through oklahoma and colorado is where the heaviest spots for showers. notice what happens by tomorrow, the bull's eye stays in the same spots, but the rain spreads farther east. the mid-atlantic and the northeast. by saturday it feels like so many of you are talking about showers all the way now even to the northeast. but notice the bull's eye is still here kind of portions of missouri back in through oklahoma city. there's the concern we have some flooding out there as well. temperaturewise, there's a cold front making its way through, they're diving down. you guys can come with me next time, it's good. >> we're passing right now. >> all right. i do like the falling temperatures, because that means the ocean temperature will drop and that means the fishing will become more active. regular fish, not figure that
are bigger than me and can eat my face. >> thank you for that. meanwhile a 12-year-old rescue dog owned by the spanish woman with ebola has been euthanized by health officials, triggering outrage and new questions about the spread of the deadly virus, can house pets carry ebola and make us sick? we'll talk an infectious disease specialist. the new cnn series, "roots: our journeys home" is coming up this sunday. cnn anchors, including this guy, digging deep into their stories, finding surprises and learning how we got where we is today. here's a peek. >> cnn, all next week they traveled the world to chase the story. not just anyone's story, their own. >> it will be a journey of surprises. ♪ ♪ >> the store riy of how they cao be. >> i had a great great great great grandfather come to paraguay around the 1850s.

there's kroefr in spain after a dog owned by the spanish nurse battling ebola was euthanized. did the dog really have to be put down? and can the disease be transferred between people and their pets? here to answer the question we hope, dr. amish dalja at the university of pittsburgh medical center, who joins me now. i think there's such interesting conversation and frustration from some parts when you look at the human toll so high according to the w.h.o., over 3,800 deaths
so far. why are we talking about a dog? yet, there is scientific purpose to this conversation. there is a public health concern. explain that to us. >> we know that in prior studies, dogs have shown an immune response to the virus, dogs in outbreak regions, they didn't have any symptoms, but they were getting exposed and infected to the virus. something that people had to think about when had you a dog ha was exposed, whether or not that posed a risk to human health. that's why the spanish authorities took the action they did. >> the idea is we know it can carry it. we just don't know if a dog or other pets, household pets can transmit it, correct? >> right. this is a very, an area where there's not a lot of data. you can see in spain they've already had a nurse, have human-to-human transmission, which really shouldn't have happened. so authorities are pressed to do something and this is one of a couple of options they could have done. it's unclear whether they had to do it. but it's definitely in the realm
of possibility that this was the right action to take. it's hard to say without much more data. >> you talk about the fact that there's not a lot of data. so this would have been a perfect case study. do you know why they maybe did not opt for that? or do we know that? do we know if there would have been necropsy done or anything else done to study this animal, to understand it better? >> that's definitely an open question, think it would have been a very good idea to get the blood of that animal, look for the virus. in prior studies, they looked at antibodies and didn't necessarily look for viruses. it would have been important to see if the lymph nodes of the dog were enlarge. animals don't get symptoms, yet primates, and humans do. >> right now, what we do know is that in west africa one of the concerns was the fruit bat, correct? and other bush meat that there's
a custom of hunting and consuming that kind of meats and the villages of west africa. >> right, fruit bats are thought to be the reservoir where ebola resides and then it spills from bats maybe into chimpanzees, antelopes and gorillas and humans. and understanding why ebola suddenly appears, explodes and then usually goes away with the exception of this outbreak. so this is the key to understanding ebola is understanding how it's going to behave in all the animals it can affect. >> do you agree with the situation in spain? there's some 300,000 people signed a petition, we haven't seen that kind of response to you know, support for the red cross, for example, which is complaining about the lack of funds they're getting to fight ebola. why the disconnect? i guess that's a two-barrelled question. first of all, do you agree with
the youthenization of the dog. >> they could have studied whether the saliva was infectious. >> we know in male humans, the virus remains active in the semen for three months. there's a lot of open questions. but i understand why the spanish government did what they did. the other part of the question, why did, we've seen people love their dogs, in multiple disasters, pet care is very important. during any kind of evacuations, when hospitals had to be evacuated, they bring their pets there during hurricanes and those become major issues to deal with that's dentally how we respond to outbreak, how we take care of our pets. >> and all of us are pet lovers, but at the same time we have to take care of our humans first and foremost. doctor, a pleasure to have you
with us, thank you so much for getting up early to talk with us. i want your opinion, what do you think, should the dog have been put down? should it have been studied? facebook.com/newday. a violent encounter with police has an indiana family outraged. they're suing, accusing officers of using excessive force for smashing their car window and tazing a passenger. that family is speaking out to cnn. it's a different kind of medicine that works by removing some sugar from your body. along with diet and exercise, farxiga helps lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. with one pill a day, farxiga helps lower your a1c. and, although it's not a weight-loss or blood-pressure drug, farxiga may help you lose weight and may even lower blood pressure when used with certain diabetes medicines.

that the police officers will have. now we know that the only video that is going to be available up to that point before he, the officer called for video back-up is a video of the young man in the car. i think's going to be whether those facts are true or not. the family does not say that's what happened. the family says when they asked jamal for the paper, he told them he did not have i.d. because it had been taken from an insurance violation. but he had the paperwork to show them and he needed to retrieve it from the back pack that he was reaching for. so there's even some question as to whether they knew that he was going to need to reach for the backpack because they keep saying that is the reason why they felt they were in some danger. >> naacp board member john gasken says as a man of color if i'm pulled over i'm leery of the officer. because at this point you're leery of your life. mo ivory, if you were pulled over and in the passenger seat
and the cop came around and said do you have i.d., would you give it to them? >> i would give them my i.d. that has happened to me before. >> the answer is yes. not to cut you off. paul, to the main proposition, which is the cop tells you to do something and you refuse. white, black, green yellow, the percentages may be different, but in all cases, how many good outcomes come out of that scenario. >> you're going to get arrested if you fight the cop at the scene. you comply with the police request, you get out of the vehicle, and you live to fight another day. you'll get a lawyer, you'll sue the police, if they're wrong. but i think, and i don't want people to make a mistake about this. in this case, the issue is not whether the police had a right to ask for identification. in fact this is a free country, maybe a driver has to have a driver's license, but a passenger, maybe you don't have any i.d., okay? there's no requirement you have to carry your wallet. but the police can ask for i.d., it's not a crime if you don't
have it. but what went on here, the police asked him to exit the vehicle. over a period of 13 minutes. the law is crystal clear. the u.s. supreme court has said, because of the danger involved, when a police officer approach as vehicle, the police can ask all passengers to exit the vehicle. this cop could have even asked the children to exit the vehicle, that's perfectly legal. and that's where this dispute arose from. that he didn't exit the vehicle as requested by the police. so they -- >> chris, i just want to say, what i want to appeal for you is would he have done that to me and my family. put the tv thing aside. a white guy sitting with his kids in the car. do they ask me to get out, in the supposition is probably not, that's the concern, right? >> of course that's the concern and probably not. i want to go back to what paul said, the issue being not getting out of the car. it was very clear when they asked him for the i.d., he did comply, he did tell them, i don't have an i.d.
but i do need to reach into my bag to give you this ticket that's going to show who i am. they didn't want to take it. even then the driver tried to give them the piece of paper from the sunroof and they still didn't want to take it. that was the police beginning to escalate a situation that did not have to get up to that point. they only asked him to get out of the car after they had their guns drawn. after they created a tense, even in the interview yesterday, the driver herself said even in the manner of which they pulled them over it was hostile. so it was hostile from the very, very beginning. which would give any black man living in america today, with a gun drawn by a white police officer, to fear getting out of the car. >> mo, i agree with you, 100% on everything that you just said. and that's why i say, there should be an investigation. at least internally about whether they exercised proper judgment in this situation. but everything that mo talked about, in the end, the police still had the right to say, i
want to you exit the vick vek. because look at it from the cop's standpoint. the cop, maybe he's mistaken. we know he was in retrospect, there was no gun or bomb or drugs in the car. but he's looking at the passenger saying, he doesn't have an i.d. he hands me a ticket indicating he's been crossed by the police before and he asks for a white shirt. a white shirt is a police supervisor. the cop is thinking, this guy is a sophisticated consumer of police services. you know what the cop is it thinking? there's probably a warrant out for the guy. now he says all right, exit the vehicle. >> just forgetting. he's thoen he's wrong. >> you're forgetting something. i want to end on this. because we got to move on now. we'll continue this conversation. unfortunately we get too many opportunities to do so right now in the country. but this wasn't just a straight dialogue with mutual respect. they were talking in the car about how cops are shooting people all over the place. and the passenger was jawing at the cop and when you look at the cop's face, they don't look
apprehensive to me, they look pissed off like i'm tired of hearing people yelling at me. it's been 13 minutes. you have fault on both sides, that's why i'm surprised there's no investigation here yet. there's a civil suit. we'll see what it yields. mo ivory, always appreciate the perspective. paul callan. the professor, thank you for being with us. >> one story that we're following. but there's a lot of news for you. so let's get to it. the white house announcing enhanced screening at specific u.s. airports. >> this is not a foolproof way of preventing ebola from coming into the country. family and friends mourning the loss of thomas eric duncan. >> we have to learn from what occurred to make sure it doesn't happen again. it's been more than a month since kim jong-un has been seen in public. >> some believe kim jong-un's younger sister could be running north korea. outrage in st. louis after a police officer guns down a man.
and good morning, everyone, welcome back to "new day," i'm alisyn camerota alongside chris cuomo. great to be with you this morning. this morning, a dallas sheriff's deputy is hospitalized and being screened for ebola. the testing is a precaution after the deputy says, we know he was in the apartment where thomas eric duncan was staying. duncan of course was the first ebola patient diagnosed in the united states. he just became the first fatality here. his grieving family is outraged over his treatment. they say if he had gotten experimental medication earlier, he might still be alive this morning. and now we see what the reaction is to the concerns in this country. five major airports are preparing to implement new screening for passengers from west africa. we have complete coverage beginning with cnn senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen live in dallas. the word that mr. duncan had lost his battle with ebola was felt in dallas by his family and all across this country. >> chris, that's very true and
with his death comes questions. why did texas health protection by tearian wait five days before asking the fda for permission to use experimental medication. other patients in the united states all got their experimental medications immediately. also questions about why he didn't get a blood donation from an ebola survivor. it's thought that such a donation can actually help ebola patients recover more quickly from their disease. so those questions still remain. the family definitely wants some answers. now you mentioned the sheriff's deputy. i think it's important to say here that this deputy never had contact with duncan. he does not have a fever. texas department of health says in that situation there's no risk for ebola, chris? >> the growing concern is do we really know, do medical certainty, how you get it and how you don't? who is at risk and who isn't? >> it seems that they cast a wide net every time somebody
winds up being infected with the virus and that also fuels doubts as well. thank you very much for the reporting. now in terms of the reaction. starting saturday, every passenger arriving at new york's jfk airport from west africa will be screened for ebola. now that means face-to-face questioning and temperature checks. the same kind of screenings will begin at newark, dulles, o'hare and hartsfield-jackson airports next week. let's go to our aviation correspondent, rene martin live from dulles international airport in virginia. do you see any preparations in place? what's the buzz there? >> well, we don't see anything in place. but we do know that if things are going to roll out on saturday, that this morning, preparations are under way, chris. we can tell you that as you mentioned, the tougher screening, it means it's going to be very detailed questions for people coming from very specific countries. three countries that have been impacted by ebola. and you mentioned the temperature checks? we know that customs officers will be using something like
this. no need to make contact with a passenger. but they will be screening them to determine if they have a fever. in days, ramped-up screening of passengers will begin at new york's jfk airport and expanding to atlanta, newark, chicago, and here at washington, d.c. the five airports receive about 95% of the 150 passengers arriving in the u.s. every day from ebola hot spots. guinea, liberia, and sierra leone. under the new screening measures, all passengers traveling from those countries will have their temperatures checked, with a laser thermometer. no touching necessary, just held close to the forehead. a new cdc questionnaire will have to be filled out upon landing. >> when a case comes through, people are going to ask, we had this temperature screening set up, why did this happen? and i'm telling people that it's
completely predictable that it will happen. this is not a foolproof way to prevent ebola from coming into the country. >> similar screening is already in place in west africa. but the goal of these new u.s. checks, is to identify passengers, airport officials missed or who develop symptoms while traveling. >> this is an additional layer of screening that can be targeted to that small population. in a way that will enhance security, but also minimize disruption to the broader traveling public. >> well the cdc says one out of 500 travelers they do indeed have a fever. if they are traveling from west africa. but they say many of those cases it turns out to be malaria. so as the custom and border patrol officers, they are taking temperatures, there's no doubt they're going to find people with a fever. but it won't necessarily be ebola. that being said, the reason for the delay in why we won't see these measures in place until saturday, we are told that the
customs officers have to be trained and briefed on all of the new procedures. chris? >> tough deal with the training, you have to deal with the false positives and many are saying, as you know, if it's important enough to screen, why not just ban travel until the virus is under control. that's part of the controversy. thank you for the reporting this morning. let's talk about what airports are going to look like come this saturday. how practical is this plan? and will it keep more cases of ebola out of the country? cnn's aviation correspondent, richard quest, is joining us from washington with more. richard, great to see you. >> good morning. >> explain what it's going to look like here at jfk on saturday? >> well it's very straightforward. because what will happen is that the passengers disembarking from aircraft, the information the authorities already have, from the advanced paessenger information, from the questionnaires filled out. they will be identifying those passengers coming from infected countries, they will be
separated, segregated and questioned. that point, a laser type thermometer, very similar to the one like this that you can just buy over the counter, but a more sophisticated version, crucial to note, no contact when you take the temperature, absolutely no contact. and if you see an elevated number, i'm pretty normal this morning. at least on the temperature scale, if you see an abnormal number or there's reason to believe from the questioning that this person has been in the area, or has been in contact with somebody, then this is where it gets crucial, alisyn. the person is then segregated even further, and no long er cd. but now being dealt with by cdc people, they will determine whether they need to be quarantined. further investigation or allowed to travel on with information. >> i see you have your thermometer, i have my own thermometer here. what you're saying is it will never touch the person's head or
body. it will held a few inches away from them and it can read the temperature in a space of a few seconds and if they are determined to have a temperature then once they go to the cdc line, do they go to a doctor? do they get treatment? and how do they determine as rene marsh was just saying, what they're suffering from? maybe they have a temperature for a different reason. >> i think you have to put it in perspective. this is not about punishment. this is not about finding somebody and locking them up. this is about finding the person who might be infected. now the temperature frankly will be a one way of doing it. but let's say you're in the early stages of incubation. you don't have an elevated temperature. but on your form you have said you've been to one of the affected areas or you have been in that particular region. then the cdc start questioning you. where have you been? who have you been in contact with? what was your business there? were you a health work centre were you a banker doing meetings? whatever it might be. from that information, you're
building up a picture of the person. this is not, let's be quite clear, alisyn, this is not a one size fits all. you have to investigate the passengers and it won't be easy. and you have to make the determination and as the cdc said themselves, it is not 100% guaranteed. >> and, richard, i was very surprised to hear that 150 paeng a day come into the united states from those ebola hot spots of liberia, sierra leone and guinea. that's a lot of passengers, what if they don't come into one of these five airports, jfk, atlanta, washington, d.c., or dulles. >> that's the major hubs of the european carriers and the u.s. carriers. there's one direct flight from that particular part of the world. not necessarily from the immediate affected countries. you would transit heathrow,
schipol and frankfurt and brussels and you're going to come into kennedy, newark, dulles, chicago o'hare. yes, in theory you could go into london and could you go to san francisco, los angeles or somewhere else. but you're looking at the main picture overall. look, you never going to be able to get the person who is so determined that they're going to get in somehow. that's not what this is about. the determined person, miscreant who wants to avoid detection, that's the danger. what you're aiming for is the travel another doesn't know, the traveler who is feeling unwell. the majority of cases, that's how they'll come. >> richard quest, thanks so much for the information, it was great to see you. let's go over to chris. outrage in st. louis after another teenager is killed by a police officer. just like the michael brown case, the officer is white, the teen is black.
angry protesters gathered in the streets, shouting and chanting profanity toward the police. but in this case, officials say the teen was the one who fired first. and the off-duty officer was acting in self-defense. rosa flores is here with the latest. rosa? >> not only are protesters hitting the streets, they're going to twitter to express their outrage. and so are local leaders, one of them saying at the scene of yet another young man's death. now police defending their position, saying the teen tussled with the officer, ran off, then turned back and fired at least three shots at police. overnight, protests erupt in st. louis. angry residents charging at police. kicking at police cars, shattering windows and shouting for police to leave their neighborhood. [ bleep ] [ bleep ] [ bleep ] [ bleep ]. >> this after an 18-year-old black man was shot and killed by
an off-duty st. louis police officer wednesday night. >> y'all just killed that little boy! >> according to the st. louis police department, the 32-year-old officer, a white male and a six-year veteran of the force, was off-duty in uniform working for a security agency on neighborhood patrol. when he came across three black men who started running from the officer's vehicle. police say, eventually one of them fired shots at the officer. >> a police officer tonight chased an individual who was armed with a gun. the individual shot at the officer at least three times and the officer returned fire. >> authorities confirm the officer shot at the suspect 17 times. the officer was not hurt, and police say a .9-millimeter gun was recovered from the scene. this shooting happening just miles away from where michael brown, who was unarmed, was shot
two months ago. and just ahead of a weekend of resistance in st. louis. where activists will push for a movement in the investigation into that case. all this as demonstrators continue in a community already reeling and seeking answers to another young man's death. >> think about your own child. >> emotions were expected to erupt this weekend with protesters asking for the end of racial profiling. the end of police violence and a change in the prosecutor in the michael brown case. now thousands were expected to attend, it's unclear how many more will show up as a result of the new shooting. chris? >> rosa, thank you very much. we'll stay on that story to be sure. a lot of news, let's get you to mick. >> here are your headlines, embarrassing new revelations surrounding the 2012 secret service prostitution scandal. despite repeated denials by the
obama administration, the "washington post" reports a white house aide had a prostitute staying with him at his hotel during president obama's trip to colombia. senior officials were allegedly told about it. that aide now reportedly works full-time at the state department, his father is a prominent democratic donor. police in pennsylvania reveal the chilling contents of handwritten notes apparently left behind in the woods by suspected cop killer eric frein. the notes describe the ambush of two state troopers last month. i'll give you an excerpt. friday, september 12th, got a shot around 11:00 p.m. took it. he dropped. i took a follow-up shot on his head/neck area. he was still and quiet after that. frein remains at large. the nobel prize in literature just awarded to french author patrick modiano, the 69-year-old was a favorite to win the prize, the 11th french writer to win. wow, how about this, a san
jose, california homeowner got more than he bargained for. said a motion detector surveillance camera went off, a mountain lion, puma, cougar, whatever you want it call it, was on his car right in front of his home. it captures the lion standing on his car, check out the scenery. neighbors believe it came from the alameda county quicksilver park which has open space and trails nearby. you know i remember being in california and waking up to see that the neighbor's cat, you would see paw prints all over your windshield, what have you. but those paw prints would be pretty big. >> when they're a size 12 nike -- >> this is the scary wildlife edition of "new day." first the great white mouth. >> do you think anyone would wrestle these things? >> indra would go out there to see how close she could get. how often do we have a situation where there's a dangerous wild animal and people feel this compulsion to go out and get as close as possible. >> it happened at 3:00 a.m.
thankfully most people would have been asleep. >> remember the famous one of the guy who had to get that close to the deer and it reared up and smacked him and it went viral. >> reenacting that one. >> he was okay. the best part was, it was a guy getting beat down by his buck and the wife was the one videoing it. don't help him. just document him getting the epic pete-down for his stupidity. >> what does that tell you? meanwhile we have to tell but this. it's a dramatic plea from the mother of an american hostage being held by isis, she is reaching out directly to the terror group's leader, asking to speak with him. will her plea have any impact? cnn has new poll numbers for you about some surprisingly tight races in kansas and alaska. what does that mean for control of the senate? we have a man who knows, his name is john king, he'll tell it you on "inside politics."
we want to tell you about a plea from the mother of an american whose life is being threatened by isis. paula kassig was trying to contact isis lieders about the fate of her son, abdul-rahman kassig. she says in a tweet quote, i'm trying to get in touch with the islamic state about my son's fate. i'm an old woman and abdul-rahman kassig is my only child.
my husband and i are on our own, with no help from the government. we would like to talk to you. how can we reach you? this, as the syrian border town of kobani continues to dangle bay thread. nearby turkey literally the other side of the border, doing nothing to stop it. there are high-level talks in turkey set for today to try to coax more involvement in the coalition on their behalf. so let's bring in daveed gartenstein-ross, senior fellow with the foundation for the defense of democracies. you understand the desperation of this family. you understand their sense of estrangement from the government. we've heard this, where families don't feel enough is being done. but reaching out directly to isis, is this a tactic that is worth it? >> it was something that happened before. in steven sotloff's case, his mother did something very similar. by issuing an video appeal to baghdadi. i think if you're in that
position where your son is being held by isis, where they've beheaded so many people before, it's going to be a tactic that you'll try out of desperation. >> is there any reason to believe that these masked men have any mercy in them at all? is there any case where they have ever eacceded to the wishe of anybody. >> they do have one release to their credit. they have a few releases to their credit. this is something that actually is mentioned in the video by one of their hostages, by james cantlie, he talks at the very beginning about how the u.s. and the uk have this strategy of not negotiating with the islamic state. while other countries engage in negotiations. it's definitely designed to place the burden for the deaths on the hands of the u.s. and uk government. but as to whether they have mercy, no. you mentioned before, the name of the hostage that's being used, abdul-rahman kassig, that
is not his birth name. his birth name is peter kassig. his mother is using his name upon his conversion to islam, which came under isis' captivity. people ask is it genuine, is it not genuine. he is still being held. as far as we know he is still alive. i will say that isis bragged that both sotloff and james foley had been converted to islam and yet they beheaded them anyway, which speaks to their lack of mercy and number two, the fact that they have violating even their very own and strict harsh interpretation of sharia law. >> this is an indication of the fact that they are not true islam, they are a perversion of it and blaming islam for the actions and existence of isis is just inaccurate. you have to blame the people because they've perverted the faith. that's that situation. let's now move into the military side of this. kobani up for grabs on the border. between syria and turkey. turkey, turkey, a big headline, daveed. we talked about how great the
development is, one of the biggest armies in the world. one of the biggest in nato. know the ground, they know the situation, the politics. it's their faith that they're fighting for -- nothing. what's going on? >> there's complexity there, this is not at all excuse the turks, this is one of the most macabre things that i have seen. they're literally on the border, watching the slaughter of kobani coming. you've already had large numbers of kurds massacred. but you do have some complexity on turkey's side. for one thing, they don't actually speak the language. they don't have a lot of arabic speakers, turkish is a different language than arabic. if they enter with ground forces into syria, it's a complex situation, they wouldn't just be fighting isis, but you have other jihadist groups. >> this isn't about dialogue, this is about knowing the terrain. this is their land. and they are just sitting there watching. is that because it is the kurds? do they want the kurds to die? >> i wouldn't, i wouldn't make
an accusation that that's harsh. but i think they are extraordinarily insensitive to what's happening to the kurds. the kurds have always been a marginalized minority within turkey. you have the pkk, the kurdish separatist organization, that explains some of their awful hesitance in this case. >> general john allen is leading the coalition on the u.s. side, going over to cut a deal essentially. talking to turkey about future involvement. further involvement. cutting the deal. what do you have to do to turkey to get them to help fighting on the ground that's desperately needed. >> part of the answer lies in the fact that turkey has much more of a stake in this than the united states does. this is happening right on their border. turkey has said they want the u.s. to have a comprehensive plan and they want the u.s. to go after assad. that's going to be part of their negotiating position. >> going after assad. any chance that the u.s. says fine, you go after assad.
>> certainly the u.s. will say that. if you look at the statement from the turkish prime minister from erdogan, he is demanding boots on the ground. but someone else's boots, he wants the united states to broaden its mission and to go after assad. that's part of the price that at least the turks at the very outset are going to try to extract for the u.s. to be involved. it's also possible i should note. that isis will cross the turkish red line. you have one of the ottoman sultans, if they destroy that, that would be a red line, force involvement regardless of what the united states does. >> you do have isis taunting turkey. it goes to the heart, the main question in the situation, whose war is it? is it a fight for the soul of islam or an extension of the u.s. fight against terror. people say it's both but it has to be more than one. more one than the other and it hasn't been decided yet to anybody's satisfaction. daveed gartenstein-ross, thank you for the perspective as always. listen to this interesting
plan to fight ebola -- send actors into hospitals pretending to have symptoms, to see how the hospitals handle it. this actually happened. and we'll tell you how it went when the doctor joins us live. and being president has its perks. what's the best thing about not being president? bill clinton has that answer on "inside politics." a mouth breather! how do you sleep like that? you dry up, your cold feels even worse. well, put on a breathe right strip and shut your mouth. cold medicines open your nose over time, but add a breathe right strip, and pow! it instantly opens your nose up to 38% more so you can breathe and do the one thing you want to do. sleep. add breathe right to your cold medicine. shut your mouth and sleep right. breathe right.
the first person to die of ebola on american soil. a new development, five major airports are set to start screening travelers from three west african nations, that will begin with jfk on saturday. there will be four other airports following suit. some chilling details this morning, about the attack on malaysia airlines flight 17 over eastern ukraine. the dutch foreign minister said on a talk show that rescuers found one of the victims with an oxygen mask over his mouth. this flies against the theory that none of the 298 people aboard knew the missile was coming. you recall the jet was shot down over eastern ukraine in july. the head of homeland security insisting isis fighters have not infiltrated the united states through the mexican border. jeh johnson on cnn blasting california congressman duncan hunter who publicly claimed at least 10 isis fight verse been stopped by border patrol agents and more are getting through.
>> we're vigilant in looking out for individuals of suspicion who may be crossing our border and we have no specific intelligence that isil is plotting to come into the homeland through our southern border. we're constantly on the lookout. >> congressman hunter's staff trying to tone down the comments, he said he was told by a border patrol source that ten people detained at the border may have a quote-unquote suspected affiliation with isis. >> not the right thing to be playing politics with. not at all. what does it mean politically? let's take you "inside politics" on "new day," with a man known as john king. >> chris, alisyn. michaela, good morning to you. a lot of senate ground to cover including brand new polling on cnn. with me to share reporting is politico's ron araju. one of the most hotly contested senate races, the republicans
need a net gain of six. republican candidate dan sullivan ahead in our poll, 50% to 44% over the democratic incumbent mark begich. the president's job approval in the state of alaska 30%. 30% of alaskans approve. 61% disapproving of how the president is doing his job. let's move on to kansas as well. that's a state republicans are very nervous about. the republican incumbent pat roberts in a tough race against an independent candidate, greg or mon. look at this, roberts, who was behind in some polling here in a statistical dead heat. with a slight edge over greg orman. the president is an issue in kansas, 34% approval, 59% disapproval. let me start with alaska. a couple of months ago beg you it begich was holding on. and it was thought the incumbent would hold on. but it seems to be trending away. >> the democrats have to hope
that these poll numbers are wrong because alaska of course is a very difficult state to poll. a lot of voters in far-flung rural areas and what bell itch is begich is relying on an aggressive get out the vote effort. if they can bring those voters to the polls, maybe they can neutralize the obama effect. but as you saw from the polls. obama is hurting begich. >> they're trying to use technology to defy the outcome of the race and what is happening in kansas? >> kansas is the most fascinating senate race on the map. republican strategy is clear, they want to nationalize the race, they think people don't know who the independent greg orman is. a they think with lots of ads mentioning harry reid, they can move the numbers in a quick direction. i think the race is tightening, roberts is unlikable, he hasn't
done a good job with his campaign. but the big news is if republicans can hang on to kansas, the seat they have, the most at risk, a very good sign for their overall prospects. >> i would add that the republicans believe that their message hasn't taken hold yet in kansas because roberts wasn't even prepared for a general election race and really only started to run negative ads. the question is whether or not it's enough to move the numbers as much as the poll suggests. >> whether disgust with the incumbent or dissatisfaction about the president. it's a dead heat in kansas as we go forward. the republicans need to hold that one. another one they need to hold is the state of georgia where the incumbent is retiring. the two candidates, david purdue, the republican, and michelle nunn, daughter of senator sam nunn. and david perdue, kept bringing up president obama and michelle nunn got annoyed. >> my name is on the ballot. we have two more years of
president obama and then we will have another president. and we need someone who is going to work with and respect whoever is the president to actually get things done on behalf of the american people. >> the question is, will it work. saying you know, obama is not on the ballot, i'm running. but will it work? >> i don't know, special entry a red state like georgia. nunn has made some moves and really tightened up the race, particularly david perdue has been hit with his career over outsourcing, which came out last week. but at the same time, this is a red state. it's a state that while may be purpose until a few years, still is solidly republican where the president's numbers are under water and the mid term election as we talk about all the time is a referendum on the party in power and this is something that nunn is going to struggle to overcome. >> we have a democratic incumbent in north carolina, one of the great races, and she's in a bit of hot water. she had a debate yesterday and after the debate she conceded
her staff for months had been saying, weeks, i'm sorry, had been saying she missed a senate hearing on isis because she was at another senate hearing. yesterday after the debate, kay hagen concedes she wasn't at another hearing, she was at a fundraiser. >> you know, there was one and what it happened at that hearing, it was scheduled for early in the day. and then votes were scheduled and that hearing, that hearing then had to be postponed later that day. so, yes, i did miss that one. >> yes, she did miss that one. and that does happen sometimes. the schedule does get juggled around. but the staff knew where she was. and the staff was trying to suggest for some time that she was at another hearing. does this have an impact on what she has been slightly ahead? this is one of the races democrats have been happy about, where you have an embattled incumbent slightly ahead. does this hurt her credibility? >> it's one of the surprising issues that republicans have
used, not just in north carolina, but in new hampshire and iowa. the issue of missing committee hearings. it happen as lot, no the that uncommon. but voters at a time when they're angry at washington, are angry at their members of congress. it's an issue that's resonated in the polls. and it could be a sleeper issue. it could make a significant difference. >> coming soon to a tv ad near you? >> you saw it happen in kentucky, too. with grimes and mcconnell. >> and one more, south dakota, there's three states where for months everyone has said, montana, south dakota, west virginia, the first three republican pick-ups, now we hear that democrats are going to try in south dakota. four candidates in the race. former republican senator larry presley, running as an an independent and another independent, former governor mike grounds. rick whyland is the democrat there. the democrats are going to want to spend money. do they think in south dakota
because of the crowded field they can pull this one off? or is this because they're so wouldorried about the math elsewhere? >> it looks like the polls have an opening for them. $1 million in south dakota goes a really long way. maybe if they can bloody up mike rounds, maybe one of those independents or rick whalen, the national democrats have been down on the entire cycle. maybe he sneaks into office and the republicans lose their chance at a majority in south dakota. right now it seems almost you know like a last-ditch effort. but who knows, it's a crazy mid-term election. >> a reflection of just that, though, right? we're worried about kansas, run-off maybe in louisiana, possibly a run-off in georgia and now a little mischief in south dakota. >> republicans were worried about mike rounds early on. they thought a former congresswoman from the state could have run in the race. rounds doesn't fund-raise well, he hasn't run any negative ads they're a little concerned in
the republican world. >> bill maher would call this new rules. bill clinton says it makes things a little different that his wife would run for president. >> great thing about -- not being president any more is you can just say whatever you want. unless your wife might run for something, then you can say whatever you want, as long as you don't make any headlines. >> that does make it more complicated. >> it sure does, everyone will watch everything he says. >> john, thanks for "inside politics." one major u.s. city putting hospitals to the test. they're sending actors into emergency rooms, faking ebola symptoms to see how they're handled. how did that go? we'll talk to the doctor overseeing it. and where in the world is kim jong-un? the north korean leader has not
good to have you back with us on "new day." concerns in dallas about a second possible case of ebola. a sheriff's deputy is being tested after coming into contact with the family of ebola victim thomas eric dumpgen. duncan's case created controversy after it was revealed the hospital initially sent him home. new york city now is trying to learn, trying to learn from the mistakes perhaps made in dallas. in fact they're sending actors into emergency rooms with ebola symptoms to check on the response. what's the verdict so far? we're going to ask dr. ross wilson. chief medical officer for new york city. this is an interesting way to do this. actors hired to act as though they had ebola symptoms. sent out into new york city-area
hospitals and the response was? >> well the response has been very good. because we've been concerned about ebola coming over the last eight weeks or so. so we've been gradually increasing our preparation. development of protocols, procedures, training, drills. working closely with the city department of health and the cdc. we thought, how do we know they work. exactly. and so we have a large simulation center for all sorts of training in health care. so the simulation team decided that we should do simulated patients. we do this in other areas, we train simulated patients and then we take a standard script, they arrive at an emergency department. the staff are unaware that these patients are not real patients, this goes through for about 50 to 60 minutes until the patient is isolated or we end the scenario. the important part is we then sit down and in a very structured way, debrief and learn. >> what went wrong, what went right. we've been gratified that most things have gone right.
but there are a lot of human beings in this process, they have to come together in the same time every way for every patient. >> there were initially were questions in dallas about whether the nurse taking the travel history took a travel history or not at some point, they blamed the computer patient information system as being a point of weakness. technology and people have to work together. >> it's a complicated interaction, always, and in health care there are a lot of steps in the process. what we want to make sure is we simplify the number of steps. simple things, if someone comes in with a headache, symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea and a fever, they immediately get a travel history. if the travel history is positive. to the three countries in western africa, sierra leone, guinea or liberia, they're isolated in each of the 11 hospitals, we see more than a
million patients a year through the emergency departments, we isolate immediately and the rest of the work-up and investigation occurs after isolation. >> one of the things that makes it a particular challenge and so important to do this year is because new york is a gigantic city in america. you also say it's because it is a point of entry through our international airports here, receiving people that are coming from west africa, a great number of people come here. talk to us about that correlation. if there are patients or people potential cases isolated the airport. how do new york city hospitals play into that? >> the while this epidemic is out of control in africa and the number of cases continue to increase at the rate that they are, then these patients are more likely to arrive in the united states or other countries. now nearly half of travel from western africa to the u.s. occurs in through new york and in which case we need to be ready. we need to be well organized. and i must say, the city's
agencies, the city department of health, ourselves and other agencies are working extremely well together with excellent guidance from the cdc to be prepared. discussions with the port authority. discussions with transportation ambulance systems, fdny. this has been well organized over many weeks and it's gradually escalating, depending on the size of the problem. >> final question, are you working with your counterparts in other cities about the lessons you've learned. this seems to be the kind of information we don't hold tight and fast to. this is information we want to share. >> we are openly sharing. last evening i was sharing with a colleague in a life system in california. setting up calls to share tools and lessons learned. >> thank you so much for joining us, showing an example of how new york can be prepared and the example it's setting for other cities to do so as well. appreciate it. chris, over to you. mick, something else we're talking about this morning. kim jong-un mystery. it's deepening. the north korean leader has not been seen publicly in more than a month. does that mean something is up? and would that be so bad?
called the supreme people's assembly and missed another key meeting to mark the 17th anniversary of his father, kim jong-il he's election as the ruling secretary of the ruling party. there was the weight gain and signs he might have developed a limp. and now, some believe kim's younger sister could be running north korea. analysts say kimmy of jong, believed to be in her mid-20s has unfettered access to her brother, the belief she might have ascended to the top temporarily comes from the north korean intellectual solidarity, a group of defectors which has not revealed the source of its information. cnn cannot independently confirm t >> i can see how it's possible she's in some sort of temporary position. it's very difficult for the north korean system to run without one of the kim family, at least titularly in charge. >> reporter: >> reporter: she went to school in switzerland and took on important responsibilities for
her father like inspecting sites before visit. she now does similar tasks for her brother but gets intelligence briefings and handles government policy. >> if, in fact, she is running the country as a -- someone in their early to mid-20s, to me that is quite alarming. it means there's something seriously wrong with kim jong-un and there is some sort of void that they are trying desperately to fill. >> reporter: south korea's defense minister now says that kim is not in the capital city. one analyst says he could be north of pyongyang in one of three different compounds used by the ruling elite. and there's one other possibility. >> another option is over here, kim jong-un spent time here, observed military demonstrations in the bay here, and even had military practices take place right off the beach in front of his family home. >> reporter: now, all eyes are on a big event this friday. will kim jong-un show up at the anniversary of the founding of the ruling workers party?
he was at the same event last year. if he doesn't show, the concern over his public disappearance will only grow. if he does, intelligence analysts will be looking at his appearance, his body language, every detail very carefully. brian todd, cnn, washington. >> all right, we will stay tuned for that. meanwhile, five major u.s. airports will start testing passengers that come in from ebola hotspots for the battle to contain and defeat ebola going on right now at a nebraska hospital. we will speak with the doctor helping to treat the infected nbc cameraman. and protesters are roughing in st. louis over a police-involved shooting again. this time, wednesday. this comes two months after michael brown was killed in nearby ferguson, but police say this is different. the teen fired first. details ahead. ♪

>> my favorite every day. always here. you're the best. they all think i want something from them. >> you want doughnuts. that's tomorrow. >> that's tomorrow, doughnut day. don't forget, blueberry, my favorite. we will begin by going to the ebola fight in dallas. here is the latest. a sheriff's deputy who had contact with thomas eric duncan's family is now being tested for ebola. why? well, the officer was in the dallas apartment where duncan had been staying before he fell ill. >> meanwhile, duncan's grieving family is expressing outrage over his medical care claiming he was forced to wait too long for experimental medicine as we learn more about the new screening measures about to take effect at some u.s. airports. we begin our coverage this hour with senior medical correspondent, elizabeth cohen in dallas. what is the latest, elizabeth? >> reporter: good morning. as family and friends continue to grieve the loss of thomas eric duncan, they have questions about the care he received at texas health medical hospital. a sheriff's deputy is being
evaluated for ebola, but a state department of health spokesman says he is at no risk for the disease. >> we did not receive in i type of emergency equipment. >> reporter: ebola fear escalating as sergeant michael monig, a deputy sheriff who initially entered into the apartment where dallas ebola patient, thomas eric duncan, was staying before it was sanitized started experiencing some ebola-like symptoms wednesday. he told wfaa affiliate friday he thought he play is come in contact with the virus. >> touched doors and lights to turn on lights. >> reporter: according to the cdc, ebola can't live on surfaces for mon than just a few hours and he said he was in the apartment several days after duncan had already been admitted to the hospital. a state health official saying, we know he didn't have direct contact with duncan and he doesn't have a fever. and in a situation like that, there is not a risk of ebola. >> overabundance of caution, wither taking several actions to make sure that the public health, safety and welfare is
protected. >> reporter: the deputy sheriff was transported to the same hospital where duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with ebola in the u.s., died early wednesday. >> today, we are deeply saidened by the death of the patient in dallas. >> reporter: some community leaders are now questioning duncan's care. >> their concern is that the same standard of identification and diagnosis and safe care applied in frisco did not apply to him. >> reporter: admitted september 28th, duncan lay sickened in his hospital bed for six days before doctors tried an experimental medication to fight ebola. compare that to nbc cameraman ashoka mukpo, also fighting you the virus. he arrived at the university of member member on monday and right away, doctors gave him an experimental anti-viral medication. mukpo also received a blood donation from american survivor, dr. kent brantly. blood donations from ebola survivors are believed to provide anti-bodies of patients still fighting the disease. duncan never received a
donation. now, a sad update, doctors who were treating the ebola patient in spain, a nurse's assistant, they say that her condition has worsened. >> that is a sad update, please keep us posted on that. the nbc cameraman infected with ebola that you just heard about, he remains in the hospital this morning. so let's get an update on his condition. let's bring in the chief of infectious diseases at the nebraska medical center, dr. mark rupp. he is helping to treat mukpo. doctor, thank you so much for taking time this morning, how is mr. mukpo doing? >> well, mr. mukpo continues to be seriously ill, but he is stable. >> and we understand that he was scheduled to get a blood transfusion from the patient, dr. kent brantly, who was successfully cured of ebola. has that happened? >> yes, it has. so, dr. brantly donated blood yesterday. and this was prepared and then
delivered to our patient yesterday as well. >> we know that dr. brantly's blood would have anti-bodies because he successfully fought off ebola. so, how will that help mr. mukpo? >> well, we hope it will buy our patient some time. clearly, a survivor of ebola is going to have a high level of antibody in their blood and so we are able to take advantage of that and give our patient what's known as passive immunity. so, we will be delivering those antibodies to him, hopefully helping him buy time until his body is able to respond to the virus and mount his own antibody response. >> when will you know if that was successful? >> well, it's hard to say. obviously i all of us are learning as we go with this disease but we hope that it will have some sort of amelioration effect and start to see some improvement the next few days. >> how long is the course of this? when somebody is deep in the throes of ebola, how many days will they be in that condition? >> well, what we have learned from our first case here, as well as the cases that have been
treated around the united states, is that the illness really lasts for several weeks. i mean, our patient was in the hospital for just about three weeks before we were able to release him. so, this is a disease that, you know, really unfolds over a week or two, and then goes into a long convalescent phase. >> mr. mukpo's father says he believes that his son contracted -- mr. mukpo himself believes he contracted ebola after spray washing a contaminated car. he thinks that perhaps some of the virus splashed into his face. have you all at the hospital gotten any more information on how he might have gotten this? >> no, i really don't have any other further details on how he may have contracted this disease in africa, but that certainly makes sense. we know if people are having diarrhea and vomiting, there's going to be a large amount of virus in those fluids and then if you try to spray that or clean out this taxi, we
understand what mr. mukpo is doing, certainly possible some of that may have splashed or aerosolized or breathed it, swallowed it, gotten it on his hands or what have you. it is pretty easy-to-understand way this may have been transmitted. >> mr. mukpo talking? is he conscious? is he awake? >> well, i can't give you a lot of details on his condition, obviously, because of the privacy rules. he is seriously ill, but he is stable, he is conscious, he is awake, he is conversant. >> all right, let's talk about the patient who sadly died yesterday, thomas duncan. his family is understandably devastated this morning and they are angry. they say that they wished that he had gotten the experimental drug sooner and they wish that he had gotten a blood transfusion. would those things have kept him alive? >> well, i think this really does point out to the fact that this is a serious disease. there is mortality associated with it. even in good circumstances.
getting very, aggressive and good supportive care. clearly, like most infectious diseases, the earlier you make the diagnose circumstance the earlier you start treatment, it makes sense that that's going to predict for a more favorable outcome. and i think there's going to be some comparisons, obviously, between the hospital in dallas and the nebraska medical center but what you have to understand is when our patients come here, we know what the diagnosis is, we meet that patient on the tarmac with a specially outfitted ambulance. we whisk them into our biocontainment unit where we've had a day or two to prepare, so we've had conversations with the cdc, with the fda, with the manufacturers of these drugs. we are all set and ready to go. very, very different circumstances in dallas. now, i don't want to second guess the facility there is and the doctors there. so, clearly, they had their hands full as they were making a diagnosis with a patient that they weren't expecting to receive. >> yes, yes, we understand. dr. mark rupp, thanks so much for all the information and taking time this morning. please, please keep us posted on
mr. mukpo's progress. >> all right. thank you very much. >> thank you. let's go over to chris for what's coming up. st. louis, missouri, on edge again, after another teenager is gunned down by a police officer. but this time, the teen fired first, say police. overnight, outrage as angry protesters shouted at police, kicked their cars and all of this in the shadow of the michael brown shooting two months ago in nearby ferguson. in both cases, the police officer was white, the teenager, black. rosa flores is here with more. rosa? >> reporter: chris, good morning. this latest shooting only escalating the already tense situation between residents and the police department. this time, police say the teen fired three shots at a police officer. and the officer fired back, 17 shots, in self-defense. overnight, protests erupt in st. louis. angry residents charging at
police. kicking at police cars, shattering windows and shouting for police to leave their neighborhood. >> [ bleep ]. >> reporter: this after an 18-year-old black man was shot and killed by an off-duty st. louis police officer wednesday night. >> how y'all shoot that little boy? y'all not finished killing babies? >> reporter: according to the st. louis police department, the 32-year-old officer, a white male, and a six-year veteran of the force, was off duty in uniform working for a security agency on neighborhood patrol when he came across three black men who started running from the officer's vehicle. police say eventually, one of them fired shots at the officer. >> a police officer tonight chased an individual who's armed with a gun. the individual shot at the officer at least three times and the officer returned fire. >> reporter: authorities confirm the officer shot at the suspect 17 times. the officer was not hurt and
police say a 9 mill meter gun was recovered from the scene. this shooting happening just miles away from where michael brown, who was unarmed, was shot two months ago and just ahead of a weekend of resistance in system, where activists will push for a movement in the investigation into that case. all this as demonstrators continue in a community already reeling and seeking answers to another young man's death. >> think about your own child. >> reporter: the confrontations with police have been intense and profanity-laced but according to police, no looting has occurred and police officers have offered much restraint as they are confronted by protesters face to face. chris? >> that is a really difficult situation in each one of these cases just exacerbates it. stay on it. rosa, thank you very much.
mick a look at your headlines now, 10 minutes past the hour. the syrian observatory for human rights say a third of the syrian town of kobani now controlled by isis. more clashes have erupted in turkey as kurds protest against the government's inaction against isis. top-level meetings on the u.s.-led coalition are being held in turkey today. meanwhile, the mother of american hostage abdul ramon kassig reached out, via twitter, to the leader of isis asking him to spare her son's life. paula kassig says, in part, "i'm trying to get in touch with the islamic state about my son's fate. i am an old woman and he is my only sop." hundreds of people turned out for a vigil at butler university in indianapolis to pray for kassig's safe return. the wife -- i keep saying this, the "washington post" is reporting a white house aide had a prostitute staying with him at his hotel during president obama's 2012 trip to colombia. it was on that trip where a prostitution scandal rocked the
agency. senior officials were allegedly told about the situation, despite repeated denials. a lawyer for that aide now says he denies all of the allegations. i think that perhaps somewhere bob barker is smiling. check out what might be the most epic fail ever on the price is right. a contestant named corey bidding on a simple ham among. the highest bid to that point, $1200. what was his bid? >> 7,000. >> 7,000? >> 7,000. >> 7,000? actual retail price, $880. come on up here. >> you know, i'm gonna defend him here. it could have been spun in gold. >> is that what he was thinking? >> just saying it could have been a gold-spun hammock that would make the value like $8,000. the other thing, to be fair, when is the last time you priced a hammock? no, really. really. anybody? when is the last time you priced a hammock? i mean. >> they are just there. >> come on, lou.
lou on camera saying he priced one this summer. i don't buy it. >> the fundamental rule is that you just need to outbid the other competitors by $1. >> yeah. >> he was excited. >> he was swept up in the frenzy p >> he thought he meant a zero. >> i don't think i could handle it either. i don't think i would be able to handle it, so excited, you lose like half of any knowledge you have of what things cost. >> i'm going to take a ride in an $8,000 hammock. >> everyone yelling. what would that hack mock do? >> polish your shoes. make a sandwich. >> a special hammock. the ebola scare has many people anxious, of course, so, what can we all do to stay safe? we will ask new york city's health commissioner. could something that small make an impact on something as big as your retirement? i don't think so. well if you start putting that towards your retirement every week and let it grow over time, for twenty to thirty years, that retirement challenge might not seem so big after all.

okay, so this morning, wither waiting for tests to show if a second person in the dallas area has caught ebola. this comes as five major airports that process most of the nation's passengers from west africa will ramp up screenings for the virus. meanwhile, here in new york city, the mayor says his city's hospitals are ready for anything. let's test that. we have dr. mary bass, new york city's health commissioner joining us now. thank you very much for joining us. pleasure being here. >> i see how on your lapel, got my flu shot. >> that's right. >> important for two reasons, one, because we are so worried about ebola, influenza kills many, many more people than could ever be anticipated by ebola in this country. >> absolutely. >> and yes, i got my shot
yesterday. >> excellent. >> almost fainted but fine. >> we recommend it for everyone six months and older. >> six months and older. >> don't wait. go it get a flu shot. >> people say i got it and i got sick, what do you say? >> that's not proven scientifically. get your flu shot. >> ebola, what we are worried about. new york city seems to have all the ingredients for vulnerability, densely populated, people from all over coming here, how do you handle it in new york city? do you have a plan? >> you know, all week, i've been saying to everyone, new york city is ready. and that is the message that we want to convey. we are prepared. we are prepared beginning with our ports of entry, carrying on to how we transport patients, protocols for the hospitals, we have the protocols in place. we ared to identify people who are at risk, to isolate them while they undergo an assessment. we can diagnose them. our public health lab here in
new york city has capacity to >> can you have one of the labs that's true. >> that's correct. >> do you go to school on a situation like dallas, pay attention to what happened in that hospital, the man first came through and miscommunication, to be generous, between the nurse and the doctors and how he was let go the first time and the urgency with which he was treated the second time because there is some speculation that may have contributed to his losing to the virus? >> it's very tragic that mr. eric -- thomas eric duncan has succumbed to ebola. of course, all of us have learned from the experience in dallas and it's really highlighted for everyone the importance of figuring out where people have been and who they have been with. and, you know, i think everyone agrees that he shouldn't have been sent home from the hospital that day, but for us here in new york city, we have been very, veried me tick louse about including questioning people about their travel in the last three weeks. we have add it had to our 911
protocol, added it to our public access information line, which we call 311. and everyone, i think, it is one of the legacies of that unfortunate experience. everyone's aware of the need to ask where you travel. >> -- in dallas, they locked that family in the apartment. you know, we don't have definitive proof but it did seem to be strongly suggested that anderson cooper, here at cnn, was the first one to report the family said the sheets and the towels are still here in the apartment. you have to do better than that. are you prepared to do better than that here in new york city? if so -- >> yes, we are. yes, we are. people who have high-risk exposures are people at risk for having ebola. the way we stop ebola is to find the people who are sick, take care of them, find their contact and monitor them. we have to monitor them for 21 days and that means you have to keep track of -- >> where do you put them?
>> sometimes people need to be quarantined. it's -- >> do you have the capacity? >> a tool of -- a tool of public health that's been used for a long time. >> you have places to put them? >> people ask stay at home and have their temperatures measured every day. let's remember where we are with ebola in this country. we have one person who's been diagnosed here who tragically succumbed to his disease. we have four people who came here with a known diagnosis. so, i think, you know, we need to keep clear where we are and how rare this s >> just so deadly. >> it is. that's what makes us all scared. it is a very scary infection. but we know how to stop it. and it's really -- the key to this is having the protocols in place to identify people who are at risk, assess them for their risk and then follow up their contacts if they should be diagnosed with ebola. >> west african community here
in the new york city area. we know you have been reaching out to them. any suspected cases here in new york city? >> no. we have been getting questions about ebola assessments from doctors, mainly doctors in emergency departments, for the last couple of months, since we issued our guidelines. we have had 88 calls. these are people who doctors have asked us to participate in their assessment. only 11 people were people who we really felt needed more in-depth interviewing and we haven't recommended anybody for testing. so, that's where we are. >> you are not waiting for it to come. you're prepared, if anything happens, the protocols are in place, because that was another issue with what happened in dallas, is that even when duncan did come in sick, they weren't ready and waiting with everything they needed the way they were with the other cases that we had with the two doctors who were brought back. >> i think you're aware that the hospital system has been using simulated patients. our city hospital system, which has been really just terrific in

>> if i win, i am not going to support either harry reid or mitch mcconnell for majority leader. >> reporter: perhaps the biggest news is that orman was even here at a scheduled public event. he hasn't had many lately. instead, he tweets after the fact photos of his campaign stops without press there to ask him questions. a strategy in this final stretch is to keep the focus on the incumbent and do no harm to himself, mostly on the air waves with ads like this. >> i'm a businessman who solves problems every day. >> reporter: orman did talk to reporters post-debate, where we tried to clear up the key question, who will he caucus with if the senate is split 50-49 and he determines chrome? no dice. don't you owe the voters of kansas an answer on who you're going to be with, because it is possible that you, if you win, could hold the balance of power in your hands? >> i sort of reject the premise of that question. i think it's a great thing for kansas. i think it's an opportunity for
kansas to define the agenda in the united states senate. >> reporter: as for roberts, he is trying to shed his out-of-touch image that got him into political trouble in the first place. why are you having such a fight? what does this say about you? you are the incumbent? >> win this campaign, we will win this race and we will, because we are having every leader from the republican party. >> reporter: the gop calvary is coming from all corners. he has already had appearances with jeb bush, sarah palin and john mccain. ted cruz and rand paul. coulding too. >> they know me and they know my record and they understand me and they trust me. so, the road to a republican majority runs right through kansas. >> reporter: dana bash, cnn, kansas city, kansas. what those politicians say is one thing but what really matters is the economy and that means we should do cnn money time right now. your money. chief business correspondent, christine romans is in our money center. what do you see, my friend? >> i'm telling you, firefighters a big dine wall street

>>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems.
xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today.

five of the nation's busiest airports will begin screening passengers coming into the u.s. from ebola hot zones. the new screenings will begin at new york's why is fk airport on saturday, followed by major hub us in washington, newark, chicago and atlanta. our next guest says the president needs to do more. let's bring in republican senator, rob portman, from ohio, a member of the homeland security committee. senator, thanks so much for being here. great to have you in the studio. okay. so you fault president obama for not going further and acting more decisively in ebola. you wrote a column for cnn.com in which you wouldn't him to
appoint a single accountable official to coordinate all of the efforts to fight ebola. are you looking for an ebola czar? >> look, i think we need to do a lot more, to be proactive about this, i think we should have had the screenings in place now coming on saturday for several weeks. i have been calling on that for several weeks. i think it's important that we assure the american people we are doing everything we can to help screen. we also needed to be doing much more in africa, in my view. in mid-september, the united states made a commitment to begin to build some clinics and supply some more beds appropriate for ebola patients there hasn't been a single bed constructed yet. i know it takes some time, but meantime it every 15 to 20 days, you see a doubling of the infection rate there. there are probably 8,000 people infected. probably more, based on what you all reported this morning, that those are underestimates almost 4,000 people died. i think the white house should have taken this more seriously at the outset. took us 40 dies respond after the world health organization called it a medical emergency. and i think we should be more, aggressive now.
>> in terms of a single official, do you think that they would be doing something differently than what the u.s. is now planning to do this weekend in terms of these screenings? >> yeah, i think having one person responsible and accountable makes sense. i think the person ought to be someone who handles what's going on in africa and what's happening here, better coordination so you can avoid some of the problems we have seen with folks coming into the country. and i think, florida icily, they have just been late to the game. i remember the mt. mid-september said, you know, that there is a very -- it's very unlikely that an ebola patients would end up in the united states. within two weeks, we had this texas case. so i think there was this mentality that somehow, this wasn't going to affect us in this country. this is a global world. a lot of people traveling. and, you know, i think it's something we haven't taken seriously. need to step it up, particularly in africa right now. >> speaking of traveling, do you want to see flights from liberia, sierra leone, through obviously some european hubs, do you want to see those banned
into the u.s.? >> well, as you say, we don't have direct flights from those countries and so they would go through europe and the europeans need to make that decision. i think we should have much more, aggressive screening. i think if you come from west africa, you ought to not just have your temperature taken but asked some very specific questions and be told that there is a penalty for not answering them accurately. it would be a criminal penalty. and we ought to let people know that. i have been calling for that for some time, i think it could have avoided some of the problems we have already seen. certainly, we need to put it in place now. >> let move on to isis. you have been talking about how you would like to see, again, more decisive action against isis. and, in fact, in terms of officials here saying they believe that 12 americans have already left the u.s. and gone to syria or iraq to join the fight with isis, like to seen action taken against them now. what would you like the president to do? >> i was very concerned when the fbi director last weekend said those people who have american
passports fighting with isis are entitled to come back in this country and we will track them very closely. i don't think that's what we ought to be doing. i think we have the legal right to detain those individuals, as enemy combatants. certainly, we have the right to revoke their passports. i think that should be done immediately. and i don't understand why, again, we are not being more proactive and, aggressive on this. in general, i think american leadership, whether it's with regard to fighting the ebola virus or whether it's regard to fighting isis, the terrorist threat that they now present, needs to be more, aggressive because other countries will follow when we lead. as we are seeing right now on the border of turkey, as we are seeing with ebola crisis, when the united states does not take a proactive, aggressive approach, it's very difficult to stop these problems. >> congressman -- california congressman duncan hunter says he believes that isis fighters have already infiltrated the southern border of the united states. in fact, he believes that many have been detained and caught. let me play for you what he said a couple of days ago.
>> i know that at least ten isis fighters have been caught coming across the mexican border in texas. there's nobody -- >> how do you know that? >> because i've asked -- because i've asked the border patrol, greta. >> have ten isis fighters already been detained? >> i don't know. i saw this morning that jay johnson, secretary of homeland security, said that was not necessarily accurate. it could happen. i have actually asked the fbi director to tell me whether fighters have already come in, because based on his comments, saying they are entitled to come back, unless their passports are revoked, which they should be in my view, and that we will track them, that, to me, is an ininadequate response. the united states should not be tracking people, we should be detaining those people, we have the right to do it. i don't know the facts in terms of the southern border but i do know that it's certainly possible. >> you think it's possible that isis fight verse already infiltrated? >> i just don't know, alisyn. i do think this is a question that we ought to get answers from the administration on. the broader question here is, again, the united states being
proactive, aggressive, let's look ahead and see what the problems are and do all we can do to prepare for it. if we had done that with ebola, you wouldn't have this problem to the degree it is, 15 to 20 days, doubling you of the number of infections so it continues to grow. you wouldn't have the problem with isis if we had left in place in iraq some residual force, including people who could focus on intelligence, some special operators and trainers and so we get behind on these things and then we have to play catch up and it's much more difficult. >> as you say, secretary johnson came out and called it categorically false, what congressman duncan said. let me play for you what his response was. >> we need to be responsible in what we say, in passing on speculation, rumor, to not unduly cause fear and anxiety in the american public. >> congressman duncan has walked back his comments as well. he says that he now says that
detainees have a "suspected affiliation." what's the difference? >> well, i don't know. that is something that we need to have intelligence to tell us about. but again, my point is, if we are continuing to react after the fact rather than being proactive, we are gonna potentially have these problems. so, if we have intelligence on these sides will have left the united states, now with isis, yes, we ought to be sure that their passports are revoke and they don't have the ability to come legally back into the united states. i think it's that simple f they try to, they should be detained. we have the right to do that, because they are enemy combatants. also other laws that could apply, including them taking up arms against u.s. government and u.s. military. so, there are opportunities for us here to be proactive on this one, we ought to do it. >> makes sense. senator portman, thank you for coming into the studio to talk to us about this. be sure to read senator portman's op ed on airport screening measures on cnn.com.

so, ceo mary barra behind the wheel for neighbor months now, a question and wonder if she is driving one, given the months after recall after recall affecting 30 million vehicles. le latest bump in the road, a barra is keeping her company's ads on nfl games despite the obvious domestic violence scandals. so, poppy harlow went out there, asked barra about it, candid one-on-one interview and now you're here. >> we had an extended conversation with her. the first time we've gotten to sit down with her since the recall crisis. i mean, the number you gave, chris is astonishing, 30 million cars. we can't forget the deaths. 24 deaths tied to that ignition switch recall and we know that is going to go higher and very severe injuries. we sat down and talked to her about the recalls and if they are really doing the right thing, as she has been saying. there are still more than 1 million gm vehicles with this defective ignition switch on the road driving today and that
scares some people. are you worried more people might die? >> well, as we look at it, first of all, we have communicated in -- several times, several forms, letters, you know, media, many different ways and we are trying to make sure that people know, if they drive with just the key, that the vehicle is safe to drive and we have done extensive testing and that's been externally validated. >> you have repeatedly said in congressional testimony, to dust, the media, gm is doing the right thing. is it the right thing to not allow those that accept money from the victim compensation fund to then ever sue gm again down the road? >> you know, the compensation program is completely optional. they have the same -- so they have the choice of if they want to participate in that and then they have the rights that are afforded to them with the legal system. but i think we are going above and beyond with what we are doing to do the right thing. >> because one mother who lost her son, michael erickson, told me just this week, are they just showing money -- are they just
throwing money at us to make this go away? and she has really wrestled with whether or not to take the money. >> again, we want to do the right thing. that's why we put fineberg in place. i would also -- as i've talked to slids that affected, if i could turn back the clock and change what happened, i would, but i can't. >> i think a lot of people want to turn that clock back. the thing is because gm went bankrupt in 2009, they have this bankruptcy protection. they are basically not liable for anything that happened pre2009, that's another separate company. so, a lot of these crashes where there were deaths happened before 2009. these families can't sue, so then they end up going into the victim compensation fund, which is a good thing. i don't want to misstate that it's good thing that there's a victim compensation fund to help these people but these mothers who lost their son tell me, well, i just feel like i'm accepting money and saying then what gm did is okay. >> gives the company a break, that's why the term that you're suing the right one, are you doing the right thing? >> that's what they say, we are
gonna do the right thing. >> tough see what that winds up meaning. under that category, doing the right thing, certainly, not talking about -- dealing with the nfl and domestic violence there has been pressure put on advertisers. they say they are sticking with the nfl. you asked about that. >> they are sticking with the nfl. all these big companies are, anheuser-busch, pepsi, campbell's soups ceo, another woman told me this week, they are standing by the nfl. we wanted to ask gm's chief, mary barra, the same thing, because they spend $40 million a year in nfl sponsorship. here's what she said. >> do you think that the nfl and roger goodell have taken the right steps responding to this domestic violence crisis? >> my personal opinion and across the company is it's just completely unacceptable. and so when i look at the steps that the nfl has taken, i think they have an opportunity to not only, you know, make very important changes that will set the tone for the nfl, but also to do something that has far -- more far-reaching implications i
think would benefit and get to the issues this need to be resolved in this case so there can be, you know, behavior change and real change in this area of domestic violence. i believe that they have that opportunity and i believe they will seize it. >> but what specifically should be done, i asked her? what are the specifics want to see? she didn't have any that she wanted to list but this he did call it a huge opportunity, not only for the nfl, but more broadly for america. i think we all -- all believe that. but i don't know, it would be interesting to actually see -- see these leaders come out and say i want to see x, y and z. we know they have been meeting with goodell. >> seems like business is business and this doesn't fit under that category, which is troubling for a lot of people. >> but chris, you had a good point, it is not just the nfl. >> i mean, we were talking about before is that if you're going to pull ads from the nfl, then you got to do it from the nba, the nfl, major league baseball, because, you know, just have to understand that the nfl is not the focus of domestic violence in this country. it is the media's focus right now, but every major sport. >> you think it's tougher for
the female ceos to -- >> good question. i think that they have unfairly been put in the spotlight to answer the question. i think -- i think every ceo, man or woman should have to respond, but with the women ceos have been thrown in the spotlight and said, well, you're a woman, we need your response, how about all of you who are sponsoring the nfl tell us why and tell us specifically what you want to change. >> great point. poppy harlow, thanks so much. good to see you. meet a man who made the ultimate come back. this wounded warrior almost gave up. now, he is everybody's hero. the amazing story of noah gal watch he is the good stuff. when laquinta.com sends him a ready for you alert the second his room is ready, ya know what salesman alan ames becomes? i think the numbers speak for themselves. i'm sold! a "selling machine!" ready for you alert, only at lq.com. pehabits of cleaning theirld dentures with toothpaste, and dentures are very different than real teeth.
