would be a historic mistake. what will benjamin netanyahu reveal and could his plans to derail the negotiations back fire? team coverage breaking down the story this morning. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. it is tuesday, march 3rd. john berman has the morning off. the white house warning israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu not to reveal secret details of nuclear talks with iran when he delivers the speech to congress later this morning. that speech bringing to a head a month's long faceoff with the administration and israel over a signature initiative. the white house believes will rein in the nuclear ambitions, but iran views as an existential threat. the speech with high drama, it is the hottest ticket in washington. cnn's michelle kosinski is at the white house with the latest. >> reporter: christine, we were hearing the concerns from the lawmakers and secretary of state and within the white house that
there could be some sensitive information revealed by prime minister netanyahu in the speech before congress. it seems that is coming from the israeli delegation putting out the teasers that we are going hear something that we have not heard before. there is good reason to believe that. remember over the last couple days leading up to the big speech, they have revealedgotiations with iran. it could reveal a ten-year timeframe. the white house was asked about that and they said no, that is not accurate. we heard from president obama and it seems like they are going for a ten-year timeframe. the white house issued a warning about reveals senseitive information. >> the release of the information would betray the trust of our allies. the fact is and that would be
true if the sources were to claim they had obtained the information from somewhere else. >> reporter: he just said if the prime minister or israelis reveal sensitive information about the negotiations that is not the way trusted allies react to each other. calling it a betrayal. whatever is going to be revealed today, it generated a lot of attention. congress set up alternate viewing areas because there is so much demand to hear netanyahu speak. >> michelle, thank you. the prime minister previewing the congressional address at a speech wednesday to the lobby group aipac. he said he will warning iran is quote developing the capacity to make nuclear weapons, lots of them. the prime minister also said his speech is not intended to hurt the president politically. >> my speech is not intended to show any disrespect to president obama or the esteemed office he
holds. i have great president for both. israel and the united states will continue to stand together because america and israel are more than friends. we're like a family. now disagreements in the family are always uncomfortable, but we must always remember we are family. >> for more on the prime minister's speech and how this is playing in israel let's bring in oren liebermann live in jerusalem. >> reporter: good morning, christine. it is within the last two or three days the sensitive information has taken over the headlines. up until now, until the moment the speech was announced, it was public opinion here in israel and in america. both support and disagreement. the threat is iran poses the safety to israel and is this speech a good idea? the right support lekud party.
on the other hand you have the left. labor camp. they oppose this speech. this is interesting, in the last two or hethree days israelis are quiet. here they have been quiet. it seems they are trying to show a unified israel to the world with netanyahu on the international stage. the criticism has been muted. now he has his aipac speech over with it is time to come back to israel. that is all they said to israeli media. isaac herzog the netanyahu challenger has planned an event outside of gaza communities where he will offer his rebuttal
rebuttal. christine. >> he has an election as you point out. oren thank you for that. the white house and israeli officials moved in washington secretary of state and john kerry and iranian counterpart were moving ahead are talks in switzerland. president obama said it is unlikely the talks will yield a deal. if iran does say yes, it would be quote far more effective than military action or sanctions at keeping iran from getting nuclear weapons. >> you know i would say that it is probably still more likely than not that iran doesn't get to yes, but i think that in fairness to them they have been serious negotiators and they have their own politics inside iran. it is more likely that we could get a deal now than perhaps three or five months ago.
but there are still some big gaps that have to be filled. >> for the latest, i want to bring in correspondent frederik pleitgen live in tehran. the president says it is not likely but the closest they have been and there are still big gaps. iranians have to move further. >> reporter: they certainly do. it is something where there is a great divide here among politicians here in iran and somewhat within the iranian society, but within the power structures here. there are those who say there is still room to maneuver and negotiations and they are moving forward well. those are people around the president rouhani. he wants a deal and they are work are hard to a deal. that is renext reflected to make
attempts to move forward. on the other hand christine, you have a few hard liners here in iran who felt iran should have walked away from the table a long time ago. people in the country who feel iran should strive for a nuclear weapons capability. that is something out here as well. if you look at the supreme leadership he has been trying to manage both sides. he has supported the negotiations but on the other hand he also said similar to president obama that he believes that a deal will be unlikely. if you survey regular people here the public opinion, there is cautious optimism that a deal could come through. there are many people who said they have seen positive signs in the past only to see potential deals fall apart in the past. there is certainly also a good degree of skepticism as well.
for most iranians what it comes down to is they want the sanctions against the country to be lifted as fast as possible. it is something everybody will tell you the country is reeling from. particularly with foreign invest investment and economic perspective. that is something you are hearing from a iranian officials. the foreign minister emphasizes that iran wants the sanctions to be dropped. >> frederik pleitgen in a windy tehran this morning. thank you, fred. hillary clinton may have violated federal rules when she was secretary of state. clinton did not have a government e-mail address during the four-year tenure. using a personal account to conduct government business. it was two months ago thatn effort to comply with the rules, to review the

tikrit. the iraqi city is under isis control, but iraq's military staging a major offensive to retake tikrit. they are getting a big assist not from the u.s. but from iran. cnn's ian lee is tracking latest from cairo this morning. america is careful about the offensive in tikrit. tell us why. >> reporter: that is right, christine. tikrit is the hometown of iraq's former leader saddam hussein. what we have is a predominately shi'ite fighting force going into a predominately sunni area. you have some arab and sunni tribal fighters with the government. it is the shi'ite militias with the strong ties to iran that a lot of people are worried about. we also know from the semi
official iranian news agency that sulimani is the ruler of the brigade. will be there as well. what the united states is careful of is supporting the iranian push but these officials have a poor track record into sunni areas. they treat civilians and enemy combatants and human rights issues. the united states is careful of being brought into sectarian fighting. watching this assault is going to be sunni and arab fighters in other parts of the country. we will watch to see how the shi'ite militia men and iraqis treat the men. that will put a strange if they are on the sunni fighters if they are helping the government. it is a huge test for the iraq military. they dissolved in the face of isis last summer.
they now have more u.s. training. they have better weapons. will they be able to take the city of tikrit? if some that will pave the way to taking mosul which is ten times larger. >> ian lee, thank you. 17 minutes past the hour. the federal death penalty trial of accused bomber dzhokhar tsarnaev set to begin on wednesday. in court monday, the prosecution and defense battled over how soon they can discuss the role of his older brother tamerlon. the two sides sparred over how much graphic evidence the jury will be shown. dzhokhar tsarnaev is charged with killing three people and injuring 264 in the 2013 boston marathon. the chief of the lapd said enhanced video of the fatal shooting of the homeless man on skid row appears to show the man's hand reaching in the direction of the officer's belt.
the review of the video shows the officer quickly pulling away at that moment. then three of his colleagues opened fire. the lapd says it is unclear if the man's hand grabbed the officer's weapon. >> i reviewed the audio and video. you can hear the young officer who is primarily engaged in the confrontation saying he has my gun. he has my gun. he says it several times. we feel great compassion in the lapd for people who live in conditions of homelessness and often mental illness with no treatment. >> the officers are part of an lapd task force that focuses on skid row and is quote specially trained with homeless issues. the police is asking anyone with video to come forward. cleveland's mayor

the relationship with israel and america viewed here as critical to israel's security because of the level of military and financial cooperation with the countries. that being said israeli politicians in the last two days have been fairly quiet. there has been some criticism in local media from the left. a bit of support from the right. it seems israel wants to present a united front with netanyahu on the international stage. they have been quiet. that speech scheduled for later here tonight in israel. isaac herzog a political rival, has scheduled his response which is for the moment netanyahu's speech ends. he will be in the settlement or communities outside of gaza where he has his own press conference. after that i expect to see more criticism here from politicians on the left. that will be refuted from politics on the right. the public like the politicians

inside iran. it is more likely we could get a deal now than perhaps three or five months ago. but there are still some big gaps that have to be filled. >> for the latest i want to bring in senior correspondent frederik pleitgen live in tehran. good morning, fred. >> reporter: good morning, christine. certainly if you listen to those talks with secretary kerry. he says the speech of netanyahu will not derail talks in any way. it is interesting. the chief of staff of the president rouhani has come forward. he has said he believes netanyahu's speech will create a rift with israel and western allies. he believes it will not derail any negotiations. if you speak to regular people on the street they are not sure. in general about the negotiations. there is cautious optimism among
many people. many people believe it is now closer to a deal than the last couple years. many people will say they have been very close in the past and positive signs in the past. things have been falling apart. you speak to people here generally in iran most of them will tell you they believe their country should have nuclear capability and allowed to develop nuclear capability. there is quite substantial minority here in iran that believes the weaponized form of nuclear capability should be thought about. one thing everybody here agrees on they want the sanctions to end. the sanctions are crippling the economy. they say they want foreign investment here and they want economic perspective. that is one reason why netanyahu's speech is something that people are talking about a lot here. although it will not be broadcast anywhere here. the people here will be talking

or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. well, a mortgage shouldn't be a problem your credit is in pretty good shape. >>pretty good? i know i have a 798 fico score thanks to the tools and help on experian.com. kaboom... well, i just have a few other questions. >>chuck, the only other question you need to ask is, "what else can you do for me?" i'll just take a water... get your credit swagger on. become a member of experian credit tracker and find out your fico score powered by experian. fico scores are used in 90% of credit decisions.
