tv Andrea Mitchell Reports MSNBC October 10, 2014 9:00am-10:01am PDT
rights and should not wait for someone else. their voices are more powerful. their voices it would seem that they are weak, but at a time when no one speaks, your voice gets so loud everyone has to listen to it. >> where in the world is kim jung un? he hasn't been seen in over a month and didn't show up to the national celebration. >> could he really just be ill and suffering from the gout or could he have been deposed? >> light at the end of the tunnel? there is reason to be hopeful. this from a flight attendant. take a listen. >> i think the man that has said this is an idiot.
>> good day. filling in two activists, one girl has been the youngest person ever to be awarded the prize and a champion of girls's education and moments ago she spoke about being honored. >> this award is not just a piece of medal or a medal or award that you keep in your room. this is an encourage if are me to go forward and believe in myself and know there people who are supporting me in this campaign. we are standing together and want every child to get quality education. this is really something great
for me. >> this man shares the award with malala. he fought for decades to protect the rights of 80,000 children. he dedicated his award to children in slavery. >> it's a great honor for all those children who are deprived of their childhood globally and honor to my fellow indians. not only me who could be credited for the prize. it's finish everyone who is fighting against child slavery in the world. >> i am joined by editor of nbc news.com's izian america. appreciate it. let's start with malala. i had chills listening to her speak. a lot of people cheered about the fact that she was awarded this year. some people thought she would win last year and what's the significance? >> last year there was prayers
that she might win the nobel prize. she was just 16, that's a lot to heap on the shoulders of a 16-year-old. i don't know what you were doing, i was hoping to pass my driver's test. >> not that. >> a lot of people thought heave here was someone righting this wave of strength and hope and work she was doing and for the first time someone had taken this cause that people knew needed to be addressed and gotten the attention people had not been able to before. even malala said she was probably too young to receive the award. she said that in public comments. again when she was only 16. actually the director of the nobel peace institute they felt last year was early and she had not quite proved herself. since then she established the malala fund and they work in four countries and pakistan and kenya and jordan and nigeria. she has been outspoken and committed to the cause of girls
education and universal education for all. she has gone to the syrian boarder to visit refugee children. she has spoken for the young women in nigeria who were the hundreds of women who were kidnapped. she has been a consistent advocate on the global stage. this year at 17 now wins the nobel peace prize. >> i love that she felt she was too young last year. whenever you hear her speak, you think she is a much older person trapped in a younger person's body. let's listen. >> i'm feeling honored that i am being chosen as the nobel winner and i am honored with this precious award to the nobel peace prize. i am proud that i am the first pakistani and the first young woman or young person who is getting this award. it's a great honor for me. a girl is not supposed to be the slave.
a girl has the power to go forward in her life. she is not only a mother and a sister and not only a wife. but a girl should have an identity. she should be recognized and have equal rights. >> touch on the point that malala raises. she is pakistani. the other winner is from india. what is the significance of that? >> that's absolutely right. there is a poignant point being made by the committee. when you talk about india and pakistan discussing national security and nuclear issues. when it comes to the award given today, they said this was about pursuing peace through education and children's rights. the future of both these countries relies on those two things. here are two people who have devoted years to freeing children from bonded labor and making sure they can get an education and malala has become
one of the most widely recognized to keep young women from getting an education saying the future of these countries relies on people like them. 6 million girls around the world do not have access to an education. we know this actually helps. children born to literate mothers. when it comes to these two countries. it went to people fighting for education. that's an important point. >> thanks so much for being here. >> i should point out that i'm wearing this necklace for international day of the girl child. it protects girls from exploitati exploitation. you can go to world visions website at world vision.org.
the world has been watching for signs of north korean dictator kim jung un, who hasn't been seen in over a month. so far nothing. today is a major political holiday and his absence is increasing speculation that something is seriously wrong. here's our own andrea mitchell. >> this morning the cia and intelligence agencies around the world are watching state television for any sign of kim jung un. at this year's celebration of the regime's workers party. an event he would ordinarily not miss. the erratic young dictator was last seen walking with a noticeable limp. >> if kim jung un does not commemorate the worker's party anniversary, it's going to add to the rumor mill about why he is not appearing in public. >>. >> the rumors are wild. is he suffering for gout or a more severe illness?
has he been overthrown. a coop could lead to civil war and a regime armed with nuclear weapons. >> whoever doesn't win will be dead sooner or later. >> consider what happened to kim's uncle. until kim had him executed last year along with his entire family. with more than 25,000 u.s. troops still protecting south korea from the north, the consequences from this and the world are enormous. >> if are more on this, i am joined by michael green, a form are member of the national security council, senior vice president for asia at the center for strategic and international studies and associate professor at the edmond a walsh school of foreign service at georgetown university. that is a mouthful. thank you for joini ining me. appreciate it. what do you make of the fact that kim jung un didn't attend today's celebration?
>> it doesn't automatically mean there has been a coop or he is incapacitated. his father kim jung il about 11 years ago disappeared for 40 something days and not every number of the kim family, the leaders have attended these anniversaries. it does as your report said raise questions about exactly what's going on. this was the 69th anniversary of the korean workers party. it's a big deal and he was expected to show up. when he was last seen he was limping. diplomats who saw him in the past year said he looked larger than on tv. bad complexion and sweating and breathing heavily. any instability is alarming because they are so heavily armed with missiles and chemical and biological weapons and artillery aimed at south korea. we can't conclude anything except that we have to watch it. partake us inside the white
house. you have served for the nsc during the bush administration. if you are in the white house right now, what are you looking for and what are the conversations like behind the scenes? >> i imagine in the situation room in the basement of the west wing, there is probably a deputies meeting or a principals meeting and the secretaries of defense or their deputies, if they see indications that perhaps we don't see, for example if they see movement of north korean military units. if they see any defectors with ties on the inside indicating more than what we have heard about a possible coop. that would be part of it. our planning for instability is fairly advanced with south korea, but rudimentary with china. i imagine the administration is reaching out and trying to get dialogue.
we are not working against each other and we are trying to stabilize the situation. >> you heard andrea map out the scenarios and could it be a coop? you seem to suggest that's not what's going on. there even suggestions that his sister might be in charge. his younger sister. >> his sister, 26-year-old kim is the rumor. there is an argument that the korean people's army and if i had to guess, it would be that he is suffering from physical and maybe mental ailments from not taking care of himself and from the enormous stress and he is checked out and trying to recover. that would be most likely. we can't prove that and it is possible that he is either been more seriously incapacitated,
marginalized. the the best we can do is reach out and try to figure out what's going on and work together with other asian partners if the we jeem starts unraveling. it has not happened, but could happen. >> thank you so much for your insights. we appreciate it. >> on a flight from philadelphia to the dominican republic, hazmat had to be called in after a passenger sneeze and then said he had the ebola virus. he said he was just joking. people were not laughing. the flight was checked on the tarmac and the passengers were allowed to go on their way, but the situation undoubtedly caused alarm prompting this prons from a flight attendant. >> i have done this for 36 years and i think the man is an idiot and i will say that straight out. >> there you have it. the president of liberia said
they turned a corner in the fight against ebola. we will ask a top official back from that country if that sounds realistic. this is "andrea mitchell report reports". so we quit selling cigarettes in our cvs pharmacies. expanded minuteclinic, for walk-in medical care. and created programs that encourage people to take their medications regularly. introducing cvs health. a new purpose. a new promise... to help all those wishes come true. cvs health. because health is everything. how did edward jones get so big? let me just put this away. ♪ could you teach our kids that trick?

tell tom torlakson to keep fighting for a plan that invests in our public schools. what we really want is people to know there is an election coming up november 4th and get out and vote. >> having the president come would not be helpful? >> well, the president is dealing with a lot of crisis in the world right now and it's important to continue to address what's happening with isis to continue to address the ebola scare. i expect him to be in washington. >> well, that seems to be the hope for many democrats this fall. keep a sitting president who won
two national elections out of their state so they can keep their seats. joining me to break it down, political reporter for the atlantic. let's start right there. the brown campaign jumped on the comments yesterday. trying to gain political traction. basically the president is getting the message from a lot of these democrats. are they alienating the bases by sending this message? >> there democrat who is worry because so much of the elections in states that obama won will depend on democratic turn out. you see democrats made it in new hampshire and iowa and colorado. they see the polls and see how unpopular the president is and made the calculation that he could alien ead the voters even if he might rev up origen rate enthusiasm with the base.
i was in michigan, the only senate race where the president is campaigning and even there i spoke to the candidate for senate, gary peters. he wouldn't say if he approves of the job obama is doing. >> listen to what allison grimes in kentucky had to say. >> did you vote for president obama 2008 and 2012? >> this election is not about the president. it's about making sure we put kentucky back to work. >> did you vote for him? >> i was a delegate for hillary clinton. i'm a clinton democrat through and through. i respect the sanctity of the ballot box and i know this board do as well. >> you are not going to answer? >> the president is not on the ballot as much as mitch mcconnell may want him to be. it's my name. >> do democrats need to be better prepared for the questions? they have to know they are going
to get this question. she made jeanne look graceful. little old me. he wouldn't bother himself campaigning for me. as far as republicans are concerned, ork bama is on the ballot this fall. it has been true for months and months. if you travel to the states or look at the ads, it is as if we are running against not the opponents, but president obama. even in governor's races where they will not be asked to support the agenda, you have candidates pointing the fingers. that riles up the base and independent voters are mad enough that they want to cast the vote against him. >> the president out in california at the home of gwyneth paltrow. she had no problem expressing love for the president. she said you are so handsome i can't speak properly. this is his primary role. fund-raising. >> there were a lot of
strategist who is sa we never realize we could advertise on how sandsome he is and not have to deal with questions about leadership. as low as his rating gets, there is a third or more of the country that strongly supports him. democrats are going to meet a lot of people who don't vote in mid-term elections. it's a kwapdry of how to excite the base and they are discouraged in a lot of states while not alienating a lot of voters. >> really appreciate it. have a great weekend. this morning here in washington, andrea joined joe lockhart, brady campaign president and vice president joe biden and a host of others paying tribute to james brady. he passed away in august and his gun control advocacy following the failed assassination attempt of president reagan that led to the brady bill, legislation on background checks for firearms.
>> he was truly one of life's origins. funny, honest, and true. >> to me, jim brady was simply heroic. life dealt him a really cruel blow. but the interesting thing about jim was those 30 something years since that time. jim never compromised. jim was never ever defeated. reluctant to try new things. what's wrong with trying new things? feel that in your muscles? yeah... i do... try a new way to bank, where no branches equals great rates. suddenly you're a mouth breather. 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!

♪ so ally bank really has no hidden fees on savings accounts? that's right. it's just that i'm worried about you know "hidden things..." ok, why's that? no hidden fees, from the bank where no branches equals great rates. ♪ ♪ >> could there be a sitting senator from south dakota who keeps the seat for democrats. we go to the mt. rush more state
where he should be run ag away with the race, but this is far from over. how unprobable is a republican loss in the race? the candidate for governor is up more than 20 points in the latest poll. democrats took a pass on even challenging the senator who was unopposed. can rick wheel and win in november? joining me now, capitol hill correspondent and susie kim by skype from south dakota. thanks for being here. i want to start with you. how did south dakota get here. democrats put a million dollars into this race. >> what are i love about this, it has money and surprise and soap opera as well. that makes it so compelling. republicans thought this was one of three almost certain wins with retiring democrats and it went under the radar. big name recognition and not
running a very aggressive campaign. it is split too evenly for republicans. democrats have this opening. their candidate is interesting because he is the kick of tom daschle who once had been the senate majority leader. he was not harry reid's pick. they are fighting. then you have the former senator who was a republican, but now said he would be a friend to obama. what a race. it could tip the balance. these what these races mean. >> it's a great sound byte. i will get reaction on the other side. >> i think the president needs friends in the senate and i would be a friend of his in the senate. barack obama has struggled with it. he has done some very good things and he has done a lot of things i don't agree with in the area of the deficit. >> susie, pressler said he will be a friend to the president, but will not say who he will
caucus with. how much momentum does he have? >> she definitely trying to get voters from both sides. more moderate republicans who don't like the direction the gop has been heading and democrats who might be wary of someone who is outspoken like rick who is basically positioning himself as an elizabeth warren-style democrat. he is being coy about which party he caucuses, but saying neither party fits where he is going to be and he is going to bring the voice of reason and moderation to the senate. >> it's a win for democrats. >> they are also forcing republicans to look at this in terms of defensive play. do they have to spend money there at the end of a campaign season? it's become the year of the enigma independent. in kansas and south dakota.
they called themselves friends of the is the. it's a phrase he is putting out there and invites a lot of interests. this is going to be a surprise and get more interesting in the final weeks. >> susie brings up the point that republicans might have to pour money into the race. is that something you anticipate happening? what's the word on the ground? >> i think that whether it's national republican oers outside groups, money is definitely becoming an issue. overall mike brown only spent about $800,000 which is low for the states. they also have not been going on the negative. he said he wants to run the campaign, but this might push things in that direction, especially voters that i talked to here in south dakota. they are just waking up to the fact that this election is happening and they haven't been paying attention and maybe heard his name or they didn't realize he was so close.
i talked to a voter who is a supporter of a college student. he hasn't realized things had been this close and he was disengaged and now that he heard, he will go out and vote. there is a lot of waking up of voters who may have been feeling disillusioned or left out or sitting on the sidelines this mid-term election. >> all right, kelly o'donnell and susie kim. appreciate it, ladies. >> for a second night, protests in st. louis turned violent. police used pepper spray to keep protesters back. the latest unrest stems from the police shooting of 18-year-old meyers. the teen fired shots at the officer. something the family disputes. local leaders of demanding an investigation by the u.s. justice department. tensions are already high in the area following the shooting of michael brown in nearby
ferguson. demonstrations are planned throughout the weekend to demand legal action for the officer who shot and killed brown two months ago. we'll be right back. ting my fut. thank you for being my hero and my dad. military families are uniquely thankful for many things, the legacy of usaa auto insurance could be one of them. if you're a current or former military member or their family, get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life. press your tonguenture, against it like this. it moves unlike natural teeth. do you feel it? it can happen with every denture. introducing new fixodent plus true feel. it helps keep dentures firmly in place. with a smooth formula, free of flavors and colorants. so you get a closer feeling to natural teeth.
there is developing news from texas to tell you about. health officials confirmed to nbc news that thomas eric duncan's remains have been cremated. he died on wednesday. shifting gears now, earlier this week, andrea mitchell spoke under the secretary for public affairs at the state department. he is letting the everyday to combat the onslaught of messages by isis over social media. here's part of that interview. >> when you have isis putting out videos with people being beheaded, violent horrific videos that appeal to the insanity of these committed young jihadis, how do you
compete with that? >> they destroy themselves with the abhorrent messages they issue. the vast majority are repulsed by everything they do. there is a small component of young men, disaffected young men who might be engaged, but part of what we try to do is intercede and talk about the true nature that isil is killing more muslims than any on the planet. we want those young men to know that. >> are you preaching to the choir and the vast majority of muslims and other people who understand that and not reaching those who would be enticed and purred on? >> the vast ma jurority of revolted by everything they see.
they want to live in piece and educate the children and have jobs for the children. in a sense they enlisted against i kill. before disaffected young men who might be attracted. there ways that we try to prevent from getting out and receiving it. we still do try through the center for strategic counter terrorism to talk to the young men and say turn away. this is not worth it. >> even your former organization "time" magazine criticized what the state department is doing in social media, saying at times there gaffes and it's embarrassing. >> as you know, the space that isil is in online, that social media space is a dark, nasty space. if we are contesting that space and competing in that space,
there will be times we do things that mirror that darkness. that is how to reach the people that it's appealing to. >> do you have to bring in young people who are more converse ant with the audience? how do you reach the young man, the teenager who intercepted trying to go to turkey, caught outside of chicago in o'hare airport? >> we have to speak in the same voice. it can't be the voice of the u.s. government. it has to be a voice that they understand. >> that was andrea mitchell. according to some esticateimates, there 400,000 untested rape kids that have been gathering gusts across the country. kids that could be putting rapists behind bars. president obama signed into act the debbie smith act that provides $150 million annually to address that backlog. she authored the original debbie
smith law that became law in 2004 and a survivor of sexual assault who founded natasha's justice project that helps them process backlog kids. thanks to both of you for being here. i want to start with you. this reauthorization. how significant is that and where do you estimate the number to be? some as high as 400,000. >> it's tremendously important and the congress cannot work on many things we need to do that we have come to save lives and women. the debbie smith bill has been called the most important anti-rape bill ever to pass congress and it provides funds to localities, to police departments to process the backlog of the dna kits to put the rapists behind bars. this not only helps survivors like natasha have closure and
know they are not on the street, but it prevents rapes. they are usually serial and rape or seven more times. we save the lives of other women. it's an important bill. we don't know the exact number. it is estimated to be 400,000. police departments are telling us what the backlog is. >> why is it still so high, congresswoman? >> they never processed it. sometimes they don't consider it a top priority. i think saving a woman from rape should be the top priority. it is rated the worst crime preceded only by murder in terms of the damage to the individual. it's important to save women from being raped and bring closure to women like natasha. most live in fear that the rapist will come back to them.
>> i want to get to natasha. you have been brave in speaking out about your experience and fight. talk about the power of dna from bringing your assailant to justice after years of the rape kit just sitting there. >> absolutely. it was a traumatic event. in in manhattan and raped and robbed and sodomized at gunpoint. it was important to bring justice for me, but also he was creating a public safety issue on the streets and a burden on law enforcement. my rapist was free for 9 1/2 years, creating additional victims in his wake and really causing a public safety issue. it was so essential and thank goodness we have the dna. the da did a great job. they tested my rape kit after 9 1/2 years and the man is currently behind bars until 2057. it's a happy story because of everyone's dedication and all
the wonderful groups out there. i formed natasha's justice project and we have joyful heart foundation and groups that are really fighting hard. it's a happy story. >> absolutely. natasha, as you would i'm sure agree, the statistics are staggering if you look at them. someone is sexually assaulted every two minutes in america. what more needs to happen through the work that you are doing, but nationwide? >> i think educating the public is the number one thing. the public needs to be aware of what dna can do. they need to support lawmaker who is are taking this seriously. they are protesting the best interest and the interest of public safety in general. i think there is amazing laws on the table. $41 million also up for consideration and i think people need to go online and learn about it and go to joyful hearts and learn about sexual assault and learn what it does for
victims and society. truly the society will be a safer place once we process these kits and put the criminals who are often times not specialists. they don't just commit rape as a crime, put them behind bars where they need to be. >> the last word to you. what more do you think needs to be done. the importance of getting education out. what more do you think needs to happen? >> it's long past due to eliminate every backlog in rape kits. we need the political will to do that. convict the rapist and put them behind bars and prevent future rapes. eliminating the backlog in the kids will save lives. it's important. we can do it. this bill should complete the task and let's move forward and complete it. >> thanks to both of you and for the incredible work you are doing. >> thank you so much. >> absolutely. >> sad news from the world of

>> today the liberian president is expressing cautious optimism about the fight against the deadly ebola virus. >> i see much more hope on the part of all of the health care workers and on the part of all of us who feel that we have come around a little bit better and we are more equipped and that we now see light at the end of the tunnel. >> 100 more troops arrived
thursday in ron rovia, carrying supplies and manpower. efforts to contain ebola continue on the home frnt. at jfk airport preparations to screen tomorrow of all passengers arriveing for west africa. we also want to report just in to the wires according to the world health organization the ebola death toll has risen to 4033. out of 8,399 cases in seven countries. really a crisis there. nbc is in dallas with more. we know that mr. duncan who passed away from ebola was cremated today. what is the latest there? >> his body was cremated and there limited options available. strict guide lines as to the handling of the and two options with a coffin or cremation. obviously in this case they
opted for cremation. a lot of scrutiny driving the report where the decisions are initially when he came to seek treatment september 26th. they released statement for things for the first time saying they treated mr. duncan with the same level of care that anyone else would have been given. they say his condition at the time did not warrant admission to the hospital. these are statements that will be debated and scrutinized by experts in the coming days. a memorial service has been held for him and a funeral is planned once all of his family is out of isolation. you will remember his fiance and her family are in a 21-day isolation president in dallas. they wait to see if they develop any of the symptoms or signs of ebola. they are among 48 people given twice daily temperature checks to monitor for this. so far no one has shown signs or symptoms and that's good news.
