7:03 am
words of aids is to lay out the strategy for degrading and ultimately destroying isis. what is obviously a complex challenge in an unpredictable region. with isis overrunning iraq and finding a safe haven in syria, tonight the president makes his case for going on offense. a strategy he previewed behind closed doors tuesday. while president obama has ruled out u.s. ground groups, the senior administration official tells nbc news the president asked lawmakers for the authority to train the syrian opposition which would require a vote in congress. white house aids say must happen before congress goes on recess next week. in a statement, house speaker john boehner later expressed support for some of the president's proposals, including training and equipping the syrian opposition. still aids say the president believes he does not need authority to take expanded military action against isis. press secretary josh ernest. >> if the president believes this is a high national security
7:04 am
priority. >> reporter: overnight, secretary of state john kerry made an unannounced stop in iraqi, part of his tour to build a coalition of allies that according to one aid has not required a lot of arm twisting. the white house says tonight the president won't give operational details and estimated cost or any precise timetable for the fight against isis. this is not a short term proposition. this prime time address comes one year to the day since president obama's last serious speech. >> my fellow americans -- >> reporter: then americans were largely skeptical of action in syria, but not anymore. especially after two barbaric beheadings. >> i think it emboldens us, stiffens our spine, it's enraged americans. >> reporter: then was the assad regime in syria. this time it is isis militants and the nature of the speech underscores its stakes, but also a significant shift for this president who wanted to lee the white house as a peacetime present, now it's likely to commit a potentially costly
7:05 am
military campaign. >> all right, peter alexander at the white house, thank you very much. chuck todd is nbc's political director and moderator of "meet the press," good morning. he wanted to leave as a peacetime president, isis makes this decision. >> that's what he's confronting tonight. he's been reluctant. over a ten day period, he seemed to be the last one to acknowledging that there needed to be a military campaign. there wasn't a political solution, and that's what he's going to outline tonight. >> he makes this speech on the eve of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and as a new journal poll shows that half of americans feel less safe now than they did just before those 9/11 attacks. and our polling shows that two-thirds of americans say it's in our best interest to confront. >> this is an odd situation. usually they go to prime time and tries to rally the nation
7:06 am
behind him. in this case, the nation's there, they're trying to find out if the president is with them. you know these beheadings, it was the most followed news story that we've tracked in five years. that's where the fear comes from. >> we don't expect to the hear the ma knew that of the plan tonight, one of the things is the training and the support of the syrian opposition. >> so-called moderate opposition. >> he's asked congress the authority to do that. i want to read you something he said to the new york times three weeks ago, he said there is not as much capacity as you would hope when it comes to finding, training, and arming a sufficient number of those opposition members. so is he about to contradict himself tonight. >> i feel like he has. this is not the solution. the solution when you talk to him frankly what he was saying to me in the interview and what his aids say, the solution is saudi troops, uae troops, it's turkish troops, this moderate opposition, the reason the
7:07 am
president has been reluctant to arm them before, they barely exist, the fear is that the arms end up in isis. >> and the speech will raise questions. how long will this take, how much will it cost, can it be accomplished? can you defeat them without u.s. troops on the ground. congress wants to hear the answers. >> they do. and those are why the president was so reluctant in the first place, he hasn't got an good answer what happened after the bombing. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. nbc news will have live coverage of the president's address to the nation, that's tonight at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific time. hoda. >> all right matt, thank you so much. there is more fallout this morning tied to the ray rice scandal and that video of rice knocking out his then fiancee. they are now speaking out while the nfl and the baltimore ravens do damage control. nbc's josh elliott has been following this closely and has details. >> good morning. in the hours after the video surfaced, ray rice was fired by the baltimore ravens, suspended
7:08 am
indefinitely from the league. and this morning, the collective outcry intensifies as sponsors cut ties with rice and the pblg furry's grows even as the league and the former team release that they didn't know and when they know. >> reporter: steven ba shrks hadi pub accomplished saying team officials had not seen the new footage before monday. but he claims, police, prosecutors, and the presiding judge had all seen it and still allowed rice, a first time offender to enter a pretrial probationary program that could clear him of an assault charge. he does say the team deserves some blame, writing quote, seeing that video changed everything. we should have seen it earlier. we should have pursued our own investigation more vigorously. we didn't. and we were wrong. meanwhile, nfl commissioner roger goodell addressed the question so many ask still, how is it possible the league hadn't

seen the footage made public by tmz sports before monday? goodell spoke with cbs news. >> we had not seen any videotape of who occurred in the elevator. we assumed that there was a video, we asked for video, we asked for anything that was pertine pertinent, but we were never granted that opportunity. >> reporter: many find that hard to believe. >> this is the nfl. they can do pretty much anything they want, but to claim that oh no, we asked and we were rebuffed and had no way of getting ahold of it, that begs reality. >> reporter: reality that's bleak today. sponsors such as nike terminated deals with them. >> ray rice -- >> reporter: while ea sports is getting rid of his image in a football video game. programs where fans can exchange their unwanted rice jerseys. some had no interest in the trade. on a day when flowers were delivered to his home, rice thanked his supporters telling

7:31 am
headlines? >> balancing in, we like it. >> let's look at the headlines, president obama will address the nation to be the to outline the strategy for confronting isis militants. he previewed his plan to congressional leaders tuesday and asked for the authority to train opposition forces in syria. nfl commissioner roger goodell responding to new criticism of his handling of the ray rice scanned. . he maintains that no one from the league saw video of rice hitting his then fiancee inside that elevator before monday. >> big discussion about that. and look at this unexpected sight off the california coast. gray whale swimming close to shore, it's not uncommon, but it is for this time of year. they've normally migrated by now. how much would you pay for a parking space? where they're going far cool million dollars apiece. >> probably. let's begin this half hour with a "today" exclusive, verdict expected tomorrow in the oscar pistorius murder trial.
7:32 am
"today" national investigative correspondent takes you inside the scene of that deadly shooting for the first time. he joins us now, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey matt, good morning, yeah, the countdown is on to this moment of truth. will oscar pistorius go three or go to prison? as you mention, the verdict less than 24 hours away now, but this morning, you're going to see the case like you've never seen it before. we are taking you inside the actual shooting scene for the first time on american tv. nbc news given exclusive access inside pistorius's bedroom, even inside the bathroom where he pulled the trigger. pistorius sold the house recently to pay off his legal bills and the new owner, allowed us to come over. since the shooting, oscar pistorius's luxury mansion has been off limits. the only images inside, these gruesome crime scene photos taken just hours after he shot and killed his girlfriend, reeva
7:33 am
steenkamp. until now. let me walk you through the shooting step by step in the very spot where it happened. that's right through here, oscar pistorius's master suite. it happened in the middle of the night. pistorius's bed was right over here, and you can see they've since gotten rid of all the furniture. pistorius says reeva was laying in bed, he had just come off the balcony, pistorius says he was standing at about this spot in the bedroom when he heard a noise from down that hallway right around the corner is the master bathroom. thought that was an intruder down there. prosecutors say if that's true, why wouldn't he walk what, two inches, wake reeva up and both run out the front door, make a safe escape away from the intruder. instead pistorius says he came to this side of the bed, keeps his gun under here, took the gun out and immediately drew his weapon holding it in his right hand. important to note, he was walking on his stubs, no
7:34 am
prosthetic legs at this point. he's using his left arm to walk down this hallway. cabinets towards the bathroom, and he's holding his gun out the entire time. here we are right here at the entranceway to the bathroom. he says he was creeping by, held his gun out and pointed it right at the toilet door. that's when pistorius says he heard another noise. thought the toilet door was opening, the intruder was coming at him, so he fired four shots. we now know that's not true. the door was completely shut, it was completely locked, and it wasn't an intruder in there, it was reeva. how did he make that mistake? one, two, three, four steps to get to this bathroom. why wouldn't reeva screaming, oscar, it's me, it's not an intruder. you get the idea when i stand here just how small this room is, and you think about reeva's final moment. and the terror she must have been in. nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
7:35 am
barely had any room to move and the bullet holes are still here in the wall. pistorius maintains this was all self-defense. we brought our south african legal expert over here to the scene to help analyze this. you're telling me even if there was an intruder here inside behind those toilet door, you can't shoot at people. >> in order for self-defense to succeed, he had to prove that his life and reeva's life were in danger. and he acted in a way in which he did in order to protect their lives. now you showed how close this is to the bathroom door. there's no way to see that the door is closed and could have perceived this to be a danger to his life. >> reporter: what do you think this means for the verdict? >> being in the bathroom, i think his version is improbable. >> reporter: pistorius says after the shooting, rerlzed it
7:36 am
was reeva in there. he put on his legs and broke down the door with a cricket bat to help. that's when pistorius says he picked reeva up off the floor and physically carried her out of the bedroom and over here to the stairs. pistorius says even at this point, in his arms, reeva was unresponsive, but she was still breathing when he got here to the foot of the stairs, pistorius says he laid reeva down and at that moment in his arms, she took her final breath and died. the question before the judge now, was this just an accident as he claims or cold-blooded murder. absolutely chilling to be inside the home. you can still see the blood marks on some of the sections of the carpeting. tomorrow is a huge day in the case, the judge delivers a verdict, we'll be here for it. >> jeff, thank you very much. and as we mentioned, the expected verdict tomorrow.

9:01 am
media in an instagram post. she wrote yesterday, to make us relive a moment is a horrible thing. to taking something away from the man i love that worked his butt off just to gain ratings is horrific. if your tension were to take all happiness in away, you've succeeded on so many levels. understand she's very upset right now, let's be clear, she is the victim in all this. but this didn't just happen to ray rice, it happened to his family. he did it, but it happened to his family. she's been there at his side for a long time. lost endorsement deals. they've lost their financial future. she's obviously very upset about what's happening right now. >> and understandably so, but the fact is, we're not doing this for ratings. this is not about ratings. it's a bigger, a much bigger issue. >> when you're hurt, you say things. you lash out. she is going through, abuse experts will tell you, you circle the wagon, this is her family, shelves she's protecting
9:02 am
her -- she feels she's protecting her family. we don't know her personally, her story belongs to her. when she's ready to is their, i'm sure she will. for abuse victims i've spoken with, they have to keep their family together. and oftentimes, they will blame themselves. something i did that night, something i did a week ago set off these events. what she's doing, let me, i don't to want say what she's doing because we don't know. what abuse victims in similar cases have done, is that they circle the wagon, they are embarrassed and trying to protect their family. and her evolution belongs to her at this point. >> it takes about seven instances of abuse for victims to finally come forward and recognize and it could take action in their lives. >> women in my group, which we have here on today who were abused from 13 to 20s. there's no magic formula, most of them said to me they hit rock bottom.
9:03 am
but what is your rock bottom. >> everyone's different. >> her time will perhaps come, or maybe not. >> it's easy for people to say walk away, it's more complicated. >> it's so complicated, then you have, on the flipside of this, a lot of people pointing the finger at the nfl and saying hey, you know what, you could have, if you wanted to find this video, if you wanted to find all this, you should have, and there was an interview on cbs news with nfl commissioner roger goodell, he addresses how it's possible the nfl hadn't seen the footage before monday. >> not seen any videotape of what occurred in the elevator. we assumed that there was a video. we asked for video, we asked for anything that was pertinent. but we were never granted that opportunity. >> how hard did they ask? >> i mean they're a powerful organization, they certainly could have obtained the video had they really wanted to see it. >> should we be asking about the legal system, the owners system
9:04 am
now says that the judge in the case, the prosecutor, and police have all seen the entire video and decided to allow ray rice to enter this probation program that would essentially clear his record? so the raven's owner, part of their statement which you have more of points to the justice system which is a part of the conversation for some. >> yeah. and actually ray rice himself spoke out very briefly said i have to be strong for my wife, she's so strong, we are in good spirits. so that's the extent of the comment we've had from ray rice. a lot of focus on the nfl and that interview that our friend nora o'donnell did with commissioner o'dell yesterday and it defied belief that no one in the league saw the tape or didn't try very hard to have plausible deniability. >> they felt, we feel that we have to see the tape. goes back to the aftermath of what was very much seen and you see the aftermath. and i understand, you know, ray rice is a brilliant, was a
9:05 am
brilliant player. has a great career, you don't want to the prejudge or presume what happened in the elevator, but when you see him dragging his wife out of the elevator, i mean, it's very hard to not know something went really wronged in there. >> and it's also hard when people say well he is a great guy. he never showed signs, well for so many, it happens behind closed doors. used to be seen as a private event. what happens in the home stays in the home. and how do you say that someone is a good guy when you see that video? you have to choose your word carefully and know that, many cases again, this is happening in closed doors. no one walks into work and says, i beat my wife last night. >> jenna wolf did a terrific piece earlier on today. spoke to four nfl wives, they're married to former nfl players, and they really, they had a great take on janay and this situation, take a look. >> janay is educated young
9:06 am
woman, college degree, student athlete, so it was never a let me use ray as a meal ticket. everything they're trying to build, they're trying to build together and be a family. and they made this one big mistake. >> i believe the nfl mishandled this situation tremendously. the nfl can figure out who draft picks or potential draft picks are dating, what their grades are in school, but they couldn't find this video. i think that's trouble pg. >> i'm sure it's very embarrassing. >> it was great. one of the things that social media, yesterday the #whyistayed was trending. i'm happy that this wife spoke about the money issue. there were people who said well she's staying because of the money. and i sent a note to someone who e-mailed, then what do you say when the person doesn't have money. or how do you come to that conclusion? >> it happens across the board. >> absolutely. >> the comment made by the last of the four women we saw there about the nfl knowing about the draft pick, so true.
9:07 am
morning joe this morning, we had mike golic. he's a great analyst and said if you're being drafted, they know what you had for lunch last week. and they know what's in the bloodstreams, they're testing everybody. if the nfl security wants to find something, they will find it. and they say they could not find this tape. >> answers that need to be provided to the public from roger goodell, and i go back again to the prosecutors in the case, their decision to offer, even though it was the first time offense, when you look at the brutality of the video on all vantage points and is that true, a year probation -- >> let us know what happened there. because what you have now are women who are abused, and they say if i turn this person in, is that what he'll get? he'll be on probation? cleared record. >> then there's the whole question about are they given an extra because they're stars, because they're part of the nfl, it's a completely different form of justice. the nfl has this problem, we talked about all the other
9:08 am
cases, greg hardy continues to play, he was convicted of assaulting his girlfriend and threatening to kill her, he threw her across the room on a couch for of assault rifles that were loaded and was threatening to kill her, but he continues to play because he's appealing the case. so while he's appealing the case, they say okay, he can go on and play. >> but the big picture here is it's not a ray rice, janay rice issue, it's not an nfl issue, it's a social crisis across the board as you both pointed out. >> and it's an important conversation and you hate, i mean, there is no ploy for ratings here or anything, but it is an important conversation. and i think because it is going, going on so prevasely across america, people don't see it as, you know, she said, it's happening behind closed doors. it is important to raise awareness and raise your voice. >> the discussion will continue. and one thing, people were all yesterday on social media that people were talking about, apple unveiling the two new iphones.
9:09 am
iphone 6, and the iphone 6 plus, and the apple watch. one of the first gadgets. >> of course i do. >> why wouldn't i? >> the iphone circumstan6, ther. >> trap a butterfly inside. it's amazing. there are three different versions of the watch. sport version, fancy version, basic version. there is the iphone 6 which is bigger than the iphone 5 s and the iphone 6 plus which is meant to compete with like the galaxy phones. so faster, longer lasting battery, better cameras, also have this nfc, near field communication technology that will allow you to use the phone as a wallet. basically, it'll import your credit cards. >> apple pay. >> you would go into the store -- >> you know the pads -- >> the wand things. >> well it's the same technology that's in the smart credit

9:11 am
waiting -- people are still waiting and once the stuff comes out, i'm sure people will be clambering. >> it's because we expected this. everything they came out with is what they expected. i think that's -- >> i think the watch is going to be interesting. >> do you think the non-tech geek is going to water watch? is that a niche item? >> i think they will. eventually. i think they will. >> it pulls up the car, you can be like the satisfy, it's a spy watch. >> it's dick tracy, two way whistle. >> you go first. >> you go first. that's right. you take the lead. i'll tell you what, we have severe weather that's going on right now and its been continuing overnight. where we see severe storms. we have again the risk of severe weather today into tonight from central missouri on into indiana, fort wayne, detroit, we are looking at chicago as well. right now sun's out in detroit, but later today, strong storms, we have heavy showers and thunderstorms dominating the
