tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN January 15, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PST
look at this from ever which way. there was no issue. there was nothing to the birther issue. now since september the constitution hasn't changed. but the poll numbers have. >> there's a big question mark on your head and you can't do that to the party. you really can't. >> i spent my entire life defending the constitution before the u.s. supreme court and i'll tell you, i'm not taking legal advice from donald. >> ted cruz, you used to say you supported doubling the number of green cards. now you are against it. you used to support a 500% increase in the guest workers. now you are against it. >> i appreciate you dumping your oppo research folder on the stage. >> it's your record. >> do you think they like each other. >> half of the things marco said are flat out false. >> unfortunately, governor christie endorsed many ideas that president obama enforced.
>> i stood on the stage and watched marco and rather indignantly look at governor bush and said someone told you because we are run for the same office that criticizing me will get you to that office. it appears that the same someone has been whispering in marco's ear too. >> we don't need a weak person running for the president. i tell you what, we don't need that. >> i guess i can frame it another way. not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan. i'm just saying. >> all right. in the end, all eyes on the two candidates at the top of the polls. trump and cruz. chief political correspondent dana bash has more on that from south carolina. >> reporter: christine and alison, it is official. the bromance with ted cruz and donald trump is over. they went at it. it became clear they are a two-man race for the top right
now. especially when it comes to iowa. and on the issue of whether or not ted cruz is eligible, one issue that donald trump brings up over and over again. at the end of the debate, it seemed that trump bested cruz on the whole issue that cruz tried to hit him with which is the new york issue. saying that he has a new york attitude. cruz was asked what this meant and he didn't answer. cruz came ba trump talked about the 9/11 new york that he knows. that is something that mr. trump talked to me about after the debate. >> he made a terrible statement when he insulted 20 million people. i was there during the death and destruction. the world trade center came down. two 110-story buildings. i was there and new yorkers were the bravest people that i and many others have ever seen. i was down there the day after. i want to tell you, i have never
seen a sight like it. thousands of people killed. two massive buildings down. the way new york came back from that and rebuilt and did it with grace. i mean with just absolute grace. you can't make a comment like that about new york. >> reporter: trump left here and went straight to iowa. he will do some stops there in the morning. that is a place where trump really wants to win to try to stop ted cruz's momentum. they are neck and neck in polls there. the question is going to be whether or not trump can get the voters out who might not have ever caucused before. it is not something that is an easy thing to do. you don't just go and check the box. you have to go and stand for hours. the trump campaign insists they will get new caucus goers and get people out to the caucuses who have never been there before. the bottom line is donald trump has to make sure that happens and has an organization that
hasn't been seen whether it comes to the republicans in iowa. >> dana, that is interesting. the organization on the ground for trump. you can see the interview with donald trump coming up. he has more to say about ted cruz's birther issue and paying for the campaign out of his pocket. that is on "new day" at 6:00 a.m. eastern. helping us sort through the back and forth of the debate. let's bring in tom lobianco. thanks for coming in early after you sat and watched the entire debate. let's talk a bit more about the birther issue. it was interesting to see cruz go after trump on this or try to and trump eating his lunch on it. how effective were they? let's first go to one of the exchanges and come back to you. >> we're running. we're running. he does great. i win. i choose him as my vice presidential candidate and the democrats sue because we can't take him along for the ride.
i don't like that. okay? the fact is and if for some reason he beats the rest of the field, he beats the rest of the field -- see they don't like that. they don't like that. they don't like that he beats the rest of the field because they want me. >> why are you raising this issue now? >> because now he's doing a little bit better. i didn't care before. it's true. it's true. look, he never had a chance. now he's doing better. he has probably a 4% or 5% chance. >> and by the way, later cruz said, hey, donald, you just a moment ago offered me a vp slot. how effective really was other back and forth. did it put this issue to rest? does it resonate with the voters? >> well, for both of them, it's kind of a win in a sense. for trump, it is a clear win because it keeps up the
effective attack that he's unleashed in the last week and a half. it keeps the focus on the birth question. you know, we have laurence tribe on air, the harvard law professor. he was cruz's professor. he said if this issue was put to bed, it was only cruz sleeping alone, basically. saying this is not done. so it is effective because it has been raised again to a bigger stage. it is not done. it's effective for cruz because remember there's an issue out there. we are talking about trump and cruz. we are not talking about chris christie or jeb bush or john kasich. it is the trump versus cruz show. that battle really helps cruz. >> you look at the speaking times. trump and cruz dominated with 17
minutes of speaking time. you run down the list and you have only eight minutes for ben carson. jeb bush with 12 minutes. inching out john kasich. another really interesting moment politically for donald trump. something he managed to pivot on this week. when ted cruz accused him of having new york values. he said they should play "new york, new york" because this is a guy with new york values. ted cruz explained what he meant by new york values. >> everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal or pro abortion or pro gay marriage focused around the media. >> new york is a great place. it has wonderful people. loving people. when the world trade center came down, i saw something no place
on the earth could have handled more beautifully and humanely than new york. i have to say that is an insulting statement that ted made. >> that is what the cover says here. "drop dead, ted." donald trump has really capitalized on something that looks like ted cruz meant for a midwestern audience, but donald trump has turned it around. >> you know. it is funny because cruz wins on the traditional points. he wins in reaching his target audience. he wins with the smooth delivery, the polished message. this is something the people seem to forget about trump in the cycle. trump is a street brawler. he is not a polished politician. he's a politician, but he's a street fighter. bringing immediately in the
september 11th reference. he dropped the political nuclear on him. you can't question it after that. that's exactly what he did. it was an effective counter. >> it wasn't just trump and cruz on stage. there was marco rubio, too. we are seeing a different side of him now. we are seeing him get even more fierce. i want you to look at this exchange. >> in fact, the only budget you have voted for ted, in the senate, is a budget for rand paul that brags about our cuts to defense. here is the bottom line. if i'm president of the united states and congress tries to cut the military, i will veto that in a miliseconds. >> i'm going to get a response to that. there is no way he launches that attack -- he had no fewer than 11 attacks there. i appreciate your dumping your oppo research folder on the debate stage. >> no, it's your record. >> do you think they like each other? >> all right.
ted cruz making a funny moment of it. marco rubio standing up for himself. is this effective? >> absolutely. this is a good reminder to the rest of the candidates. everyone trying to win that so-called establishment slot. if you got something, now is the time to use it. marco used it effectively. you could see it in the way cruz reacted. that smile that rubio had. he scored a hit. that was a very effective hit. >> slammed him on guest workers and visa and h 1-b visa. let's show the graphic of the time of the candidates. 17 minutes for ted cruz and 17 minutes for donald trump. you see 8 minutes for ben carson. carson did not get much in there. he kind of made a joke about it on the debate stage. listen to what he said. >> well, i'm very happy to get a
question this early on. i was going to ask you to wake me up when the time came. >> he lost his finance chief yesterday, too. he had major upheaval in his campaign. do you think this field will start to winnow? >> it will happen. this is going back to rubio using his opposition research on cruz. now is the time to use this. the things start getting real and whatever happens after that, everything starts closing in exponentially with each race and primary and caucus. it is real now. >> tom, nice to see you. thanks for getting up early or staying up late for us. thank you. all right. time for an early start on your money. stock futures are lower. markets in europe are down. i'm sad to report in asia a big
loss for shanghai. oil trading back below $30 a barrel. big gains for stocks yesterday as investors have a relief rally. look at the wild week. big loss wednesday. a recovery on thursday. small gains on monday and tuesday. this follows the biggest horrible week last week. here is where it stands. dow dropped 6% this year. that is more than 1,000 points it lost this year. even with the rally yesterday. nasdaq is the biggest loser. 7.8%. 5.9% off for the s&p 500. about half of the companies in the s&p 500, alison, are in a bear market. technical bear market. down 20%. >> so much for a calm friday. i don't see it happening. new arrests in the isis attack in jakarta. that targeted westerners. heightened security through the city. we will take you live there next. ibs-d. you know the symptoms when they start.
abdominal pain. urgent diarrhea. now there's prescription xifaxan. xifaxan is a new ibs-d treatment that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. and xifaxan works differently. it's a prescription antibiotic that acts mainly in the digestive tract. do not use xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, or any components of xifaxan. tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition. tell your doctor if you have liver disease or are taking other medications, because these may increase the amount of xifaxan in your body. tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are nursing. the most common side effects are nausea and an increase in liver enzymes. if you think you have ibs with diarrhea, talk to your doctor about new xifaxan.
. security forces in indonesia arrested three suspects in the bomb blast in jakarta. the blast killed two people and wounded 24 hours. isis took responsibility for the attack in the most heavily populated muslim country in the world. let's bring in cnn's saima mohsin. saima, they had an indication that a terror attack was imminent. >> reporter: they did, alison. they have been conducting raids because of that information from intelligence officials throughout december, 2015. there were fears attacks would be carried out in christmas and new year period. an attack was carried out just yesterday in the heart of the capital in jakarta. police were quick to respond probably because they were on
high alert. thankfully the death toll not too high. concern as you say, the big question is isis gaining a foothold in the world's most populous muslim country. now just to give perspective to viewers. 500 fighters are believed to have left indonesia to go and fight in iraq and syria. it is many of those that are returning that cause concern. 500 compared with 200 million, of course, gives you the perspective there. they are taking this seriously. the main terror suspect, bahrun naim he is an indonesian man who traveled to syria and it is where he believed to recruit and pay for yesterday's attacks. this is a man wanted not just in indonesia, but around the world because of the part he plays with isis in syria. huge concern. i have to tell you, alison, the
reaction today here in jakarta. i have been at the grande mosque all day. prayers all day. a big reaction against the terror attacks. by local people saying not in our name. this does not represent us. this does not represent indonesian muslims. going so far as calling the attackers infidels. the imam using strong words saying that terrorism is a crime against humanity and islam is not meant to scare people. it is not meant for the use of force or violence to spread fear among the population. alison. >> important to note you do have people there speaking out saying this does not represent us. samia, thank you. 18 minutes past the hour. sacramento, california man indicted by a federal grand jury.

happening now. a navy probe into how ten u.s. sailors wound up in the revolutionary guard of iran. the navy says preliminary statements the sailors gave indicate some combination of navagational error and engine trouble. one sailor apologized for the mistake and that put defense secretary john kirby on the defensive. >> what we are happy about is we are able to get them home. in less than 24 hours, nobody hurt. all safe. we got our boats back. >> the criticism days before the administration hoped to celebrate the iran nuclear deal. the removal of the core of the
arak reactor. for the latest, i want to bring in cnn's frederik pleitgen. for the ten sailors are farsci island. credited to saying look, we have a lot on our plate diplomatically. let's make this a good story for both of us. >> reporter: absolutely. it remarkable for the u.s. and iran to resolve a dispute in 24 hours. there are some things that did sour the whole thing. if you look at the video that came out of the u.s. sailors taken and as they were in custody which were shown all over iranian media and all over the world's media, if you will. that is something that didn't go down well with a lot of people. many of those are the republicans criticizing the administration. at the same time. it is correct. it is a very important phase right now with the u.s. and iran. you have the nuclear agreement which most probably will go into
effect in the next couple days. it will be announced today that iran is in compliance with all of the things it needs to do to ramping down the nuclear program. pouring concrete in the last reactor and with that, iran will get sanctions relief in the next couple days. they believe they will have access to $50 billion in frozen assets and they will be able to sell more oil than in the past and do business internationally again. that is something that will make them strong. hard liners in iran say they are going to remain confrontational toward the u.s. however, the administration here in washington and also the one in tehran, the rouhani administration, they want better relations. however, it is still a dicey subject. >> fred pleitgen in berlin. thank you. a heated night on the republican presidential debate
stage. candidates went after each other. the big moments and who came out on top. that's next. does your makeup remover every kiss-proof,ff? cry-proof, stay-proof look? neutrogena® makeup remover does. it erases 99% of your most stubborn makeup with one towelette. need any more proof than that? neutrogena. and i quit smoking with chantix. i had a lot of doubts going in. i was a smoker. hands down, it was... that's who i was. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these,
stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lotta fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. parking is hard to find. seems like everyone drives. and those who do should switch to geico because you could save hundreds on car insurance. ah, perfect. valet parking. evening, sir. hello! here's the keys. and, uh, go easy on my ride, mate. hm, wouldn't mind some of that beef wellington... to see how much you could save on car insurance, go to geico.com. ah! (car alarm sounds)
republicans running for president going after each other on that debate stage. we're breaking down the big moments and reaction. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm alison kosik. there were no more mr. nice guys in south carolina in the republican debate. gone was the courtesy from the earlier debates we saw. instead, with the first votes in iowa over two weeks away, at least four of the candidates, donald trump, ted cruz, marco rubio and chris christie. they just kind of went for it. >> back in september, my friend donald said he had his lawyers look at this from every which way and there was no issue there. there was nothing to the birther
issue. now since september the constitution hasn't changed. but the poll numbers have. >> there's a big question mark on your head and you can't do that to the party. you really can't. >> i spent my entire life defending the constitution before the u.s. supreme court. i tell you i won't take legal advice from donald. >> ted cruz, you used to support be doubling the number of green cards. now you say you are against it. you used to support a 500% increase in the guest workers. now you are against it. >> i appreciate you dumping your oppo research folder on the debate stage. >> it's your record. >> at least half of the things marco said are flat out false. >> unfortunately, governor christie has endorsed the ideas that president obama supports. common core or gun control. >> i stood on the stage and watched marco and water indignantly look at governor bush and say someone told you that because we're running for
the same office that criticizing me will get you to that office. it appears that the same someone is whispering in marco's ear too. >> we don't need a weak person as president of the united states. we don't need that. >> i guess i can frame it another way. not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan. i'm just saying. >> in the end, though, all eyes were on the two candidates at the top of the polls. trump and cruz. dana bash has more on that from south carolina. >> reporter: christine and alison, it is official. the bromance with ted cruz and donald trump is over. the two went at it. it became clear watching them in the debate it is a two-man race at the top right now. especially when it comes to iowa. on the issue of whether or noted cruz is eligible to be president, one that donald trump brings up over and over again.
at the end of the debate, by the end, it seemed that trump kind of bested cruz on the issue. that cruz tried to hit him with which is the new york issue. saying that he has a new york attitude. trump came back talking about the 9/11 new york that he knew. the post-9/11 new york. the way new yorkers came together. that is something that mr. trump talked to me about after the debate. >> he made a terrible statement when he insulted 20 million people. i was there during the death and destruction. the world trade center came down. two 110-story buildings. i was there. new yorkers were the bravest people that i and many others seen. i was down there the day after. i have never seen a sight like it in any life. thousands of people killed. the way new york came back from that and rebuilt and did it with
grace. with just absolute grace. you can't make a comment like that about new york. >> reporter: trump left here and went straight to iowa. he's going to do some stops there in the morning. that is a place where trump really wants to win to try to stop ted cruz's momentum. the two of them are neck and neck in polls there. the question is going to be whether or not trump can get the voters out who might not have ever caucused before. it is not something that is an easy thing to do. you don't just go and check the box in a ballot box. you have to go and stand there for hours. the trump campaign insists they will get new caucus goers and get people out to the caucuses who have never been there before. bottom line is donald trump has to make sure that happens and has an organization that hasn't been seen when it comes to the republicans in iowa. alison and christine. >> dana, thanks for that. you can see all of her interview
with donald trump coming up. he has more to say about the birther controversy and paying for the campaign out of his pockets. that is today on "new day." >> helping us sort out the debate is tom lobianco. the clash between cruz -- truz ticket. the clash between the two of them defining the debate. the birther argument is still front and center here. trump says we are running, if i win, what happens if i appoint you as my vice president? listen. >> we're running. he does great. i win. i choose him as my presidential candidate and the democrats sue because we can't take him along for the ride. i don't like that. okay? the fact is and if for some reason he beats the rest of the
field, he beats the rest of the field -- see, they don't like that. they don't like that. they don't like that he beats the rest of the field because they want me. >> why are you raising this issue now? >> because now he's doing a little bit better. no, i didn't care before. it's true. it's true. he never had a chance. now he's doing better. he's got probably a 4% or 5% chance. >> it's vintage trump. cruz says the only reason he is saying this now is because i'm doing better in the polls and trump says yeah, i'm doing it now because you are doing better in the polls. >> it's hilarious how transparent it is. >> is it working? >> of course it is working. he is continuing it. he had a bigger stage for that line of attack last night. i don't think he will stop. there's no reason for him to stop. you know, in a sense, and rubio
brought up this point about the cruz brought it up about rubio dropping the opposition research on him. now is the time to use this. people are paying attention now. people are paying attention in iowa, of course, a few weeks out. they are also paying attention in the other states. this is where the momentum comes from. iowa leads to new hampshire. new hampshire brings you down to the southern primaries in the south. south carolina. what happens now is that if you got a good attack, you have something effective, you use it. one of the big questions out there, you know, whether or not it is actually a legal question, it is a legitimate political question. that is the ted cruz's birth in canada. it is an effective attack. and trump is just hammering away at it. it's working. it is narrowing the lead that cruz has in iowa right now.
>> and in other issue that got attention last night was the issue where cruz was insulting or trying to insult trump saying he is a guy with new york values. that started when trump had a song "born in the usa" at a campaign event and cruz was asked about it. what does he think about it? now we know what he thinks about it. he thinks that let's go to what was said last night. >> everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal or pro abortion or pro gay marriage focused around money and the media. >> new york is a great place. it has great people. it has loving people. wonderful people. when the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than new york. i have to tell you that was a very insulting statement that ted made. >> so trump eating cruz's lunch
on that. looking poised and presidential and passionate about his answer. he came out on top with that one, didn't he? >> sure. you know, cruz really hit his target audience with that. when trump made that point and boy what an effective counter. you could almost see the pictures of the firemen downtown manhattan raising the flag through the ashes. i mean, you know, what an evocation he came up with and a moment. he destroyed cruz with that argument. you also have to remember, too, what cruz is doing here is blowing a dog whistle as we say in politics. he is not going after those of us on the east coast. he's going after social and religious conservatives in iowa and in the midwest. people who have an understanding like him of what new york values
are. he doesn't need to necessarily explain himself when he makes a statement like that. >> tom lobianco, nice to see you this morning. have a great weekend. >> thank you. >> a focus of the debate. the economy. the candidates painting a grim picture of why changes are needed. are they right? we are breaking it down next. on location with the famous, big idaho potato truck. our truck? it's touring across america telling people about idaho potatoes. farmer: let's go boy. again this year the big idaho potato truck is traveling the country spreading the word about heart healthy idaho potatoes and making donations to local charities. excuse me miss, have you seen our truck? you just missed it. ahhh! aw man are you kiddin' me? does printing from your tablet give you a jolt of confidence? then you might be gearcentric. right now, all hp ink is buy one get one 50% off!
so you know, a focus of the debate last night was the economy. candidates attacking the tax plans and painting a grim picture of the obama economy. we have joining us the chief strategist of verizon. if the u.s. economy is strong, it doesn't give them a good position to advocate for change, right? the 5% unemployment rate. you have 2.5% gdp growth. concerns overseas. how are they doing on painting a picture of a grim economy and are they right it is so grim? >> i don't think it is that grim, but it doesn't feel great. the recovery has been mediocre. this gloomy argument contrasted by obama earlier in the week resonates with the republican base. >> how concerned, though, do you
think voters are as they listen to donald trump talk last night on the debate stage when he talks about the 45% tax on imports from china. the worry being that there could be a big trade war started up. let's go to the sound from last night and get your reaction. >> sure. >> they are killing our companies. thousands and thousands. you look at the number of companies and number in terms of manufacturing and plants that we lost. 50,000 because of china. >> you never advocated putting a tariff. >> we add have lost between 4 to 7 million jobs to china. >> he can demagog about this and it which is resonate. as jeb bush pointed out, the prescriptions that trump is
offering are dangerous. do we want to get into a trade war with china with all that is going on in the markets? that is the last thing the markets want to see. >> i want to show you what is happening in world markets. europe is down. shanghai is down 3%. on the cover of "the wall street journal." concerns mounting over the u.s. economy which is solid here. the u.s. economy and financial system can take everything that is happening worldwide. what do you think? >> it is valid, christine. the worry and concern is going to grow. let me make two positive points in the otherwise gloomy story. first of all, i think with more market volatility, federal reserve may not raise rates as people expected in march. they may delay this for a while. that is a good story. secondly, we are about to get one of the great tax cuts in the history of america. that's called $1 a gallon
gasoline. that puts money in people's pockets. disposable income goes up. that is what the economy needs right now. >> let's go back to the debate last night. chris christie talking about president obama's business policy and we will come back and talk about it. >> if you reform the corporate tax system in the country, which was mentioned before, the highest rate in the world and we double tax, as you know. that led to over $2 trillion of american companies moneys kept offshore because they don't want to pay the second tax. who can blame them. the president has penalized corporations in america. he doesn't understand what that does is hurts hard working taxpayers. you see middle class wages go backwards during the obama administration. >> this is something no doubt that companies can relate to, but taxpayers, americans can certainly relate to it, especially in the economy right
now. as strong as it is, it has yet to see a breakout moment in the recession. >> we talked about this a couple minutes ago. one of the reasons it doesn't feel good, the economy feels blah is real disposal income is stagnate now for a decade. a lot of people and trump supporters and bernie sanders' supporters feel like they have been left behind. >> can i ask you about the candidates? do you see the candidates and see this one would be good for the economy and good for taxpayers. this one understands how it works and how main street and wall street works. this one will hurt america. what is your sense of the republican field? >> i don't want to take a pass on the question, but i will say this, the lack of specificity in what they would actually do is troubling. they can all criticize. that's easy. in saying specifically this is what i'll do, i think there is still a lot of uncertainty. it is worth noting it is a cliche. the markets hate uncertainty.
i think one of the big concerns about trump is the uncertainty he would bring. trade fight with china. fighting with janet yellen. bashing wall street. a lot of things about trump that would make the markets uneasy. >> greg, thank you for the advice. looks like the global worries are justified. thank you for that. let's take a look at what is coming up on "new day." chris cuomo joins us. >> the pleasantries were brief are donald trump and ted cruz. trump returning the favor of the new york values issues. cruz questioning what that means in terms of maybe seeming to suggest it may be negative. boy did donald trump defend the big apple. you will see how. also donald trump will give his take on the situation to "new
day." we will hear from carly fiorina coming off a strong undercard performance. everyone wants to know who won the powerball jackpot. we thought we knew. it turns out to be a hoax. you will never guess who is behind the hoax. and no, it is not me. >> i was just going to ask. >> you are still a loser this morning. oh, wait. i'm sorry. >> and they all laugh. they all laugh! >> happy friday, my love. nice to see you. >> do you hear that? do you hear that? don't choke on your glee, my friend. >> someone cut his mike. 50 minutes past the hour. chipotle is taking a unique approach with the e. coli outbreak. why it is closing all of its stores in one day. the best sim veggie dish ever?
security forces in indonesia have arrested three suspected terrorists in connection with the bomb blast in jakarta, indonesia. the attack killed two people and wounded 24 others. isis is taking credit for the operation signaling a trouble expansion by the terror organization into the heavily populated muslim country. let's go live to jakarta and bring in cnn's saima mohsin. you look at what authorities were ready for. they knew an attack was imminent, but they could not hold this one back. >> reporter: no, this one came on unexpectedly. they had a tip this could take place, but they thought it would happen in the busy christmas and new year time, alison. that is why they started conducting raids in december, 2015. over a month ago now. raids this morning where they
made arrests. they are not sure whether the three men arrested this morning are linked to yesterday's attack directly. were they planning? were they helping facilitate the attackers? something they could not hold back. the police were quick to respond and take on the terrorists that tried to rampage through the city center of jakarta trying to target what they claim to be non muslims. that is why i spent the day here today in the mosque here in central jakarta where the imam has spoken out saying the terrorism is a crime against humanity. telling muslims and non muslims, really, alison, islam here should not be scary and should not be used to put fear among people, he said. he also pointed out this jihad by isis is wrong. he said through islamic history, wars conducted by muslims were
