missouri, city leaders meet for the first time since violent riots last month and hear it from outraged citizens. captioning funded by cbs this is the "cbs morning news" for this is the "cbs morning news" for wednesday, september 10th, 2014. good morning. i'm marlie hall in for anne-marie green. the national football league is playing defense regarding the suspension of former baltimore ravens running back ray rice. the league's disciplinary action of rice for assaulting his then fiancee shifted this week after new video surfaced that shows the actual attack. his original two-game ban was replaced with an indefinite suspension. on tuesday nfl commissioner roger goodell spoke exclusively to "cbs this morning's" norah o'donnell about how that new video impacted the league's decision. >> what changed? i mean on the first tape she was lying unconscious on the ground, being dragged out.
did you really need to see a videotape of ray rice punching her in the face to make this decision? >> no, we certainly didn't. i would tell you that what we saw in the first videotape was troubling to us in and of itself. but what we saw yesterday was extremely clear, extremely graphic, and it was sickening. and that's why we took the action we took yesterday. >> but there are still questions about how much the commissioner and the nfl knew and when. susan mcginnis is here in new york. susan, good morning. >> marlie, good morning. commissioner goodell admitted he didn't get it right when he originally suspended ray rice for two games, but now that the new video has been released, many are wondering if the nfl did enough in the early days of the investigation. roger goodell said he learned of the second videotape monday morning. it shows ray rice knocking out the woman who is now his wife inside an atlantic city hotel elevator.
>> did you know that a second tap had existed? >> we had not seen any videotape of what occurred in the elevator. we assumed there was a video. we asked for video. but we were never granted that opportunity. >> goodell maintains no one to his knowledge in the nfl saw the tape before monday, but that's opened the league to criticism for not gathering all of the evidence. the website tmz sports obtained both pieces of video showing the attack and its aftermath. >> i don't know how tmz or any other website gets their information. we are particularly relying on law enforcement. that's the most reliable. it's the most credible. >> norah o'donnell asked point blank if the nfl intentionally ignored the evidence. >> did the nfl drop the ball or was the nfl willfully ignorant about what was on the tape? >> we have certainly did not know what was on the tape. we were perfectly honest when i acknowledged two weeks ago we
did not get this right. >> that sentiment was echoed by ravens owner steve bisciotti. he sent a letter to ticket owners tuesday saying, quote, we should have seen it earlier. we should have pursued our own investigation more vigorously. we didn't. and we were wrong. the team released rice on monday hour hours, leaving him without a job and suspended him from the league. norah o'donnell asked if rice had a future in the nfl. >> i wouldn't rule it out, but we want to make sure he's addressing the issue clearly, he has paid a price for the actions that he's already taken. >> now, ray rice and his wife spoke publicly on tuesday. rice told espn the couple is in good spirits. his wife janay blasted the media for showing the attacks. marlie? >> susan mcginnis here in new york. susan, thank you so much. you can see more of norah o'donnell's interview with roger goodell on "cbs this morning."
tonight president obama will lay out for the american people his new plan for going after islamic militants in syria and iraq. the broader counterterrorism plan includes strengthening elements of the syrian opposition and security forces in iraq. secretary of state john kerry arrived in baghdad this morning to meet with iraq's new prime minister. mr. obama briefed congressional leaders yesterday. mark albert is in washington. mark, good morning. >> good morning, marlie. in his rare evening address, the president will not lay out a timetable for defeating isis or the total cost to taxpayers, but he is expected to ask congress for $500 million to train syrian rebels. that would avoid american combat troops. in a prime-time speech from the white house tonight, president obama will tell the nation his strategy for degrading and ultimately destroying isis. so far the u.s. has carried out
more than 150 air strikes against isis targets in iraq. the president may announce that air campaign will now expand into syria, the terror group's stronghold. republican peter king thinks the president needs to have a comprehensive strategy. >> that would involve at the very least all out air attacks against isis in both iraq and syria. >> on tuesday the president briefed top congressional leaders. democrat nancy pelosi called the meeting a valuable opportunity for consultation, and republican house speaker john boehner said he would support the president targeting isis leadership. president obama told the leaders he has the authority to broaden the military campaign against isis without congressional approval, but some lawmakers here on capitol hill disagree. >> i don't believe that the president has the authority to, quote, go on offense and wage an open-ended war on isil without congressional approval. >> it would be to his advantage and all of our advantage for congress to be, in effect,
approving a plan for defeating isil. >> secretary of state john kerry is in the middle east today trying to build an international coalition to defeat isis. president obama is expected to stress that u.s. military action alone will not be enough to defeat isis, and its support from allies will be crucial. marlie? >> mark albert in washington. thanks so much, mark. you can watch the president's address right here on cbs beginning at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. this morning more severe weather including the threat of flash floods is expected from the great lakes to missouri. yesterday there were tornadoes and heavy rain and flooding in nebraska and missouri. people trapped in cars had to be rescued. meteorologist eric fisher of our boston station wbz has more on the severe storms and some cold weather headed to the northern u.s. >> we've seen some tremendous rainfall rates especially across iowa into northern missouri
