tv Way Too Early MSNBC May 6, 2013 2:30am-3:01am PDT
live." thanks for being up with us this monday, may 6th. we have a lot to cover this morning, including the nra's massive annual meeting. 70,000 were there. headliners including wayne lapierre, sarah palin and an intro video from rick perry. so far no cemetery in boston wants anything to do with the dead suspect in the marathon bombing. the debate over where to send his body. plus an update on the case in the three other men swept up in the investigation. let's get to the news live here in new york city. tensions are mounting in syria and across the wider region where a new front has opened in that country's brutal civil war. israel launched attacks twice in the last several days. in an apparent attempt to keep sophisticated weapons made in iran from getting to hezbollah. they're targeting long range
missiles in a military research center which sent shock waves across the city. israel would not officially confirm the attack but syrian state tv blamed israel and according to nbc's richard engel, many welcomed the attack. though they promised retaliation, it's not clear if syria, iran, or hezbollah will make good on those threats. the u.s. said it was not surprised on the threat. in an interview with telemundo, president obama defended the raid. >> the israelis justifiably have to guard against the transfer of advanced weaponry to terrorist organizations like hezbollah. and, you know, we coordinate closely with the israelis recognizing that they are very close to syria. they're very close to lebanon. hezbollah has repeatedly said
that they would be willing to attack as far as tel aviv and so the israelis have to be vigilant and they have to be concerned. we will continue to coordinate with israel. in yet another complication, a u.n. human rights investigator said it may have been rebel forces that used chemical weapons in at least one attack. according to officials, they have not seen evidence that the government was behind the use of sarin gas. that would be a red line that would change his calculus on american involvement. senator john mccain is now using those words against him. >> the whole thing is escalating, yet as you may have noticed, the leader of hezbollah committed to helping bashar assad. the conflict is spilling over into lebanon and jordan. the whole situation is becoming more and more expansive and
unfortunately the red line that the president of the united states wrote was apparently written in disappearing red ink. secretary john kerry heads to moscow to get them to back off on their support of the assad regime. now to more dire news out of afghanistan where at least 7 service members were killed in attacks across the country. in one attack in southern afghanistan on saturday a roadside bomb killed five u.s. personnel. two others died after an after fwan soldier turned his gun on them. 19 u.s. personnel have died in the last week alone, 7 of them when a civilian cargo plane crashed early after it took off from bagram air field. that incident was caught on tape. as the violence wages on, karzai said he hoped the cia
would continue supplying him with bags full of cash. he was getting ghost money totaling millions of dollars. on saturday, karzai, whose government has been accused of corruption, said the money has helped with problems. because of all these rumors in the media, ploes do not cut all this money because we really need it. we want to continue this sort of assistance and the cia station chief in kabul promised that they are not going to cut this money. the situation at guantanamo bay remains unresolved. dozens of detainees are now being force fed in a pretty gruesome manner to counter the effects of their hunger strike. the u.s. defense lawyer calls the process brutal but they say the force feeding is necessary to save their lives adding, the technique is similar to that used for the elderly joompt
nearly 2/3 of the 166 prisoners at guantanamo are now refusing to eat. using words like battle, war, and stand and fight, leaders of the nra are focusing in on the 2014 election using the ongoing debate over gun legislation as a bashup encounter with what they call an historic attack on the second amendment. this year's annual meeting drew an estimated 70,000 people. there gun makers showed off their latest products while celebrity speakers and politicians framed the law as an assault on personal freedom. among them wayne lapierre who suggested the boston bombings underscore the need for more americans to arm themselves. >> thank you very much. private citizens sheltered in place with no means to defend themselves or their families from whatever might come crashing through their door.
how many bostonians wished they had a gun two weeks ago? [ applause ] >> how many other americans now ponder that life or death question? the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. >> many there celebrated the defeat of the manchion appeal. sarah palin accused the white house of exploiting victims in the newtown massacre. >> this president flying grieving parents on air force one making them back drops in his perpetual campaign style events. instead of leaders who offer solution we have leaders who practice the politics of emotion. what keeps me optimistic keeps
us reloading in this fight. what keeps us going in this fight and about this country that i love, i know we love is the faces that i see here today. you don't give up. the washington establishment mirrors the view and you don't give up. the mainstream media just plain doesn't get you and you don't give up. you don't retreat. >> today the board of directors will name james porter as nra's new president. it was motivated by revenge. governor rick perry, meanwhile, prefaced his remarks with a little prerecorded target practice. >> the governor and our good friend, rick perry.
♪ ♪ he hit the targets that weren't moving. in washington both houses of congress are expected to move forward the immigration reform laws. they will hash out a deal by the end of the month. patrick leahy anticipates dozens of amendments will be filed. the gang of 8's bill will be marked up. they hope a bipartisan plan can make it to the floor intact. senator marco rubio discussed how voters are impacting the future bill writing last week, intense public scrutiny has helped identify shortcomings and
unintended consequences that need to be addressed. president obama spoke about the challenges ahead. >> when i say i'm optimistic, i didn't say it was going to be easy. we always knew it was going to be a challenging task. i do think there will be a number of ups and downs and near death experiences as this travel, but when you look at where the american people are, where not just democrats and independents but also republicans and the public are around the need for sensible immigration reform, then i think we can get this done. but not everyone is quite as optimistic. former senator jim demint talked about passing the laws. he was talking about amnesty for undocumented workers. >> the bill that is being presented is unfair for those who came here legally.
it will cost americans trillions of dollars. it will make our you be lawful immigration system worse. if you consider all the factors related to the amnesty, believe me, this is comprehensive, it will have a negative long-term impact on our gross domestic product. we just want congress for once to count the costs of a bill. >> and now for the latest from boston. robel phillipos will ask to be released from federal custody later today. his lawyers say he had nothing to do with the bombings, he was simply confused and scared when he was questioned by authorities. they conducted another search of tamerlan tsarnaev's apartment yesterday. they are arriving in boston to lay the older suspect to left. the family is having problems locating a cemetery willing to take his body. the suspect's uncle says, quote, no one wants to associate their
name with such evil. let us know why you're awake. shoot us an e-mail at waytooearly ooth msnbc.com. the knicks open the semifinals as the favorites, but last night they got out muscled in game one against the pacers. nba playoffs ahead. later "saturday night live" returns with zach galfanakos. that and more when "way too early" continues. passengers crowded the windows to watch a roar and a burst of flames as the winds turned the ship into a flaming inferno. it's the greatest of miracles that anyone came out of the disaster alive.
