good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. it is monday, november 17th. 5:00 a.m. the family of an american aid worker peter kassig coping with his death at the hands of isis terrorists. the islamic militant group showed the video of kassig's body after the beheading. president obama called it a quote, act of pure evil. kassig's parents release a statement saying they are heartbroken. joining us now from london with more is cnn's atika shubert. atika, the spokesman for isis on the beheading video speaks with a familiar english accent. there is some similarities to other beheadings on tape, but differences as well. >> reporter: that's right. the masked militant known as jihadi john here in london shows the beheading of peter kassig.
in previous videos, we have seen the hostages dressed in orange jumpsuit and speak to the camera and killed. in this one, it is 50 minutes long and most of it is propaganda from isis until the end when you see peter kassig's body. he never speaks to camera and we never see him alive. jihadi john delivers the speech to camera. a lot of questions as to why this may be. one of the key factors may be that peter kassig, also known as abdul rahman, converted to islam while he was held hostage. there has been some talk about the fact that they never acknowledged the fact that he converted and they don't talk about the fact he was an aid worker. there has been widespread condemnation from the muslim community. this may be isis responding to that criticism by not acknowledging that he was muslim. >> a tragic situation. somebody doing humanitarian work in syria and his family is
expected to speak later today. thank you for that, atika shubert. aid agencies say isis has been stealing food and other foreign aid to redistribute it to hungry syrian families and take credit. isis has diverted some of the aid to its own fighters and their families. america's top unformed officer says momentum in the war on isis is starting to turn. joint chiefs chairman martin dempsey making a surprise visit to baghdad over the weekend. telling u.s. marines that victory might take several years. president obama at the g-20 summit responding to the dempsey earlier suggestion that some day he might have to send ground troops to fight isis. >> there are always circumstances in which the united states might need to deploy u.s. ground troops.
if we discovered that isil had gotten possession of a nuclear weapon and we had to run an operation to get it out of their hands, then yes, you can anticipate that not only would chairman dempsey recommend me sending u.s. ground troops to get that weapon out of their hands, but i would order it. negotiators head back to e vienna this week. they are up against a current deal that expires later this month. the advisors are putting an agreement at 40%. state department rushing to upgrade security on the e-mail system after detecting signs of possible hacking. department officials say only unclassified systems were affected. officials were not saying if the apparent intrusion over the weekend was a work of a foreign

they have a problem with illegal immigrati immigration. for the president to say i'll remove the word illegal and transition this and ignore the law, a lot of people have a problem with that. >> reporter: and while overseas, president obama said what he would like to see in a bill from congress that could then nullify the actions that he will take on immigration reform with the executive actions. listen to those comments. >> if congress passes a law that solves our border problems and improves our immigration system and provides a pathway for the 11 million people here working in the kitchens and farms and making beds in hotels. everybody knows they're there. we're not going to deport all of them. we would like to see them out in the open pay their taxes and pay a penalty.
get right with the law. >> reporter: over the weekend, a number of mainstream republicans said on a number of programs they do not think that republicans should try to shut down the government to force president obama's hand on immigration reform, but we should see something this week from them on what kind of bill they can end up passing. christine. >> erin, thanks for that. veterans affairs patients are waiting for improvements to the v.a. system. data obtained shows 10% of patients wait for a month for appointments. 64% of facilities have two months wait time for appointments. so far so good for obamacare 2.0. the white house says 100,000 people signed up for insurance on the first day.

before. there are similarities here, but differences. >> reporter: there are striking differences. in previous videos, we have seen the hostages in orange jumpsuit and spouting isis propaganda. this time, we never see peter kassig speak. you don't see him alive at all. only his body. standing over him is the man known in the british press as jihadi john. the masked militant with the accent that delivers that propaganda speech. it is not only peter kassig who is killed in the video, but in the preceding 15 minutes, a highly choreographed and style murder of a dozen syrian soldiers, again, led by the militant known as jihadi john and a number of other isis militants who are not masked. investigators are now poring over that video to try to identify all of the isis
fighters in the video. >> that's right. we know the governments are looking to see if there is a french citizen among the unmasked people in the video. we have to wait and see what that shows. what i think is interesting here is that we don't know why we don't see peter kassig speaking. it could be that he would not say the propaganda that they wanted him to say as the others had. it could be that something else happened or could be also that the public relations value of killing him is just not good for this group. he is a man converted to islam and someone helping the syrian people. >> reporter: exactly. his case in particular has evoked widespread condemnation in the muslim world. to see somebody who is out there helping the syrian people and time of need, who converted to islam. he was known as abdul rahman
kassig. the fact he may not have been saying the words they wanted him to say. there is speculation online as to whether or not he would recite the muslim prayer. to show that at the time of killing would have been offensive for isis to put out. that may be one reason. they simply do not knowledge that he was muslim and he did convert in part because it would devalue the public relations aspect and propaganda. >> his family is heartbroken. they will speak with reporters later today. our thoughts and hearts go out to them. atika, thank you. aid agencies say isis has been stealing food and other foreign aid to redistribute it to the hungry syrian families and take credit for it. isis has diverted aid to their fighters and families. america's top unformed officer says momentum in the war against
