tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  March 3, 2015 5:00pm-6:01pm PST

5:00 pm
jeanne moos cnn, new york. >> thanks for joining us and be sure to record "outfront" to watch us anytime any night. in the meantime "ac360" starts right now with wolf blitzer tonight. good evening, i'm wolf blitzer in washington sitting in for anderson. we have breaking news. the justice department's report on policing in ferguson missouri the investigation launched in the ugly wake of the police shooting that left michael brown dead. the conclusion a pattern and practice of racial bias against african-americans by the nearly all white ferguson police department. targeting blacks disproportionately according to one official familiar with the report for traffic stops, use of force, and jail sentences. the report revealed outright racist e-mails within the department. we'll have a bunch more on this shortly including reaction from our own sunny hostin and benjamin. let's begin with the nuclear reaction to benjamin netanyahu's
5:01 pm
speech. the israeli prime minister with talks at a turning point. word against isis now at a full swing. israeli elections around the corner. critics and supporters. we're going to hear from all sides tonight. first though. highlights from the prime minister's speech. >> when it comes to iran and isis the enemy of your enemy is your enemy. [ applause ] the difference is that isis is armed with butcher knives captured weapon and youtube. iran could be with
5:02 pm
intercontinental blastic missiles and bopmbs. if anyone thinks this deal kicks the can down the road, think again. when we get down that road we'll face a much more dangerous iran a middle east littered with nuclear bombs and a countdown to a potential nuclear nightmare. even if israel has to stand alone, israel will stand. [ applause ] but i know that israel does not stand alone. i know that america stands with israel. i know that you stand with israel. >> president obama said he did not watch netanyahu's speech. he read the transcripts. safe to say, the president was not impressed.
5:03 pm
>> on the core issue, which is how do we prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon which would make it far more dangerous and give it scope for even greater action in the region the prime minister didn't offer any viable alternatives. >> more from michelle kosinski joining us in the white house. michelle clearly, the white house, the president, not happy at all but here's the question. how angry are they? >> reporter: they don't want to come out and say that of course. it's what you read between the lines. the president did say that this was a mistake to do this speech now, only days at this point before netanyahu faces election but what we have seen this white house try to do in fact over the last two days is try to preempt and prebutt virtually every he said in the speech and make an argument against it. saying if you try to add more restrictions on to iran now, make the time frame for the deal
5:04 pm
indefinite and add more sanctions, try to get them to stop the nuclear program altogether the administration will walk away. this administration is in stark opposition to netanyahu that no deal is going to be far worse. what they say is when there was no deal and no negotiations that's when iran did advance its nuclear program and the white house says only once negotiations started did we really see iran halt it and even roll it back in some respects wolf. >> michelle how confident is the administration that a deal with iran can actually be reached? >> reporter: we were surprised to hear not confident at all. we see kerry keep up this almost punishing schedule working on the negotiations right now, but the president yesterday said look it is now more likely than not that iran walks away from this deal at least as it stands as far as we know wolf. >> all right, michelle thanks very much. let's go to congress right now. the reception there and the reaction from lawmakers.
5:05 pm
dan dana bash is joining us from capitol hill. visceral reactions from the prime minister's speech. >> reporter: visceral is a great word. you had the rousing applause the moment people saw and the image people saw for the most part for mostly republicans and the democratic side we talked about the fact about 50 democrats boycotted the speech but the image most lasting when it comes to the democratic side was the house democratic leader nancy pelosi, grimacing and agitated at the things prime minister was saying and looking at her colleagues saying what are you doing? this is something we should not be applauding and afterwards she said she was insulted because she felt like the prime minister was insulting the intelligence of americans and brought her to near tears. here's what she explained what she meant. >> i was near tears because i
5:06 pm
love israel very much. i value the importance of the relationship of israel and the united states. united states of america has as one of the pillars of its national security and its foreign policy to stop the proliferation of weapon of mass destruction. and that's what we do and if the deal isn't good enough we won't accept it. i don't think we needed any lectures on that. >> strong words from nancy pelosi. what will congress do next? try to insert themselves into this deal? >> reporter: they might likely do exactly that. i think it was very telling that even just a couple of hours before the prime minister finished his speech in fact hadn't left the building yet, the senate majority leader moved to fast track legislation to give congress a role in this. congress doesn't officially have
5:07 pm
a roll. they want to insert themselves. republicans and some democrats, this is bipartisan and effectively what this would say is any deal that the obama administration makes with their allies and iran would have to come to congress first for two months of debate and congress either approve it vote it down or say nothing. and this is something, again, that has bipartisan support. the question is whether or not they're going to wait to move on this until after these talks are finished. it's just three more weeks or not. it looks like there's enough support to hold off and let the talks play out. but it certainly does seem as though congress wants to have a role in this and there's no question that the prime minister's speech was in many ways for consumption at home in israel politically, but here it's clear he wants a congressional backstop for these talks if nothing else. >> what's been the reaction dana up on capitol hill to the minority leader nancy pelosi's
5:08 pm
very tough words saying this was an insult to netanyahu, an insult to the united states an act of con dendescendingcondescending. >> reporter: a lot of republicans are upset. and saying they thought she was rude. and that she shouldn't have behaved that way and then needed to go and others needed if they agreed to go they should be polite but clearly, she is an institutionalist expressed herself clearly that thinks the creation of the state of israel was the shining light in the 20th century and thinks that him coming into her house, the house of representatives and criticizing, in her words,
5:09 pm
lecturing the american people in the congress was just wrong. >> i could not but notice she often would remain seated. she was not happy with what she heard sonny hoyer was standing up with republicans left and right. dana thank you very much. iran's foreign ministry spokeswoman called the speech in her words a deceitful play. and not exactly welcoming but were there nuances to the iranian position beyond the public statements? frederik pleitgen is working sources live from tehran. what's been the reaction over there, fred? >> reporter: well, certainly, the iranians have had anger lashing out at prime minister netanyahu and didn't mince words. the speech wasn't broadcast here on television. the iranians would never broadcast the speech by an israeli prime minister. however, there was video shown of it and had a banner over it
5:10 pm
that said iranophobic speech and a growing rift between the israelis and the administration of barack obama. there were commentators here on iranian tv who called the speech a humiliation for barack obama. but i want to get back to the spokesperson for the foreign ministry ministry. we reached out to her because iranian officials are not always this forthcoming this statements but they clearly felt they wanted to make some. one of the most interesting lines i got is this this is me quoting her, the continuous lines aimed at the intentions of nuclear program of iran are repetitive and sickening and goes on with the continuation of the negotiations with the serious will of iran to remove this artificialyificial crisis.
5:11 pm
this rift between the israelis and the obama administration. and seems to indicate that this speech has not killed negotiations and that the iran iranians are willing to continue these negotiations wolf. >> i'm sure they're happy about this rift in the relationship between the obama administration and netanyahu. in terms of the deal being hammered out now, they've got about three weeks left before they're supposed to reach the framework agreement. how confident are iranian officials based on everything you're seeing and hearing, that a deal will in fact be reached? >> reporter: well you know it's very interesting. because it doesn't seem as though iranian officials are necessarily as confident as they might have seemed the last week or so. there are always two sides to all of this. you have the people who want negotiations and someone to come forward. those are people around president romani, the moderates
5:12 pm
and then liners in parliament who felt iran should have walked away a long time from negotiations. they would rather deal with sanctions than to reach an agreement with the united states and allies. in the middle of all this wolf you have the supreme leader of this country and someone who has been playing all this carefully. he said from the beginning he doesn't believe a deal is likely but at the same time he says he backs these negotiations and hopes that a deal can be made but also said he would only accept a deal that's quote, good for iran wolf. >> all right, fred. thank you very much. fred pleitgen reporting for us in tehran. up next the repercussions of today. what netanyahu wants and what president obama fails to see and the policy experts weight in later. we have more details from the explosive report on racial bias in the ferguson missouri,
5:13 pm
police department, including racist e-mails now coming to light. there's nothing more romantic than a spontaneous moment. so why pause to take a pill? and why stop what you're doing to find a bathroom? with cialis for daily use, you don't have to plan around either. it's the only daily tablet approved to treat erectile dysfunction so you can be ready anytime the moment is right. plus cialis treats the frustrating urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision

5:16 pm
case or the wisdom of injecting himself overly into the washington fray.
5:17 pm
there's no denying the leader is a formidable public speaker with a knack for turning a phrase. >> the greatest danger facing our world is the marriage of islam with nuclear weapons. to defeat isis and let iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle but lose the war. we can't let that happen. >> just a little while ago, i spoke with three individuals who are deeply versed in u.s./israeli relations. bush press secretary airi flesher. currently at woodrow wilson international center and petr at the new america foundation. ari, so what did the prime minister's speech from your perspective accomplish? most republicans were already
5:18 pm
supportive of them as you know. some democrats flat out furious including nancy pelosi. said the speech was condescend condescending and insulting to the united states. did it make the situation between the u.s. and israel worse? >> we'll find out soon. two key moments. one, there's going to be a vote in the united states senate to give congress a role in approving whatever it is that the president negotiates and two, whether or not congress moves forward. i think he probably picked up several votes today. there will have to be a veto majority to approve it. it will be close. >> don't you agree the u.s. congress has got to consider this, it's an important issue, important for them to hear. >> there are appropriate times to be come to attack his foreign
5:19 pm
policy i don't think that was the appropriate form. >> the relationship and you've studied for a long time between the u.s. and israel. there are ups and downs, riffs, if you will but the public anger between president of the united states and a prime minister of israel i don't remember that. >> it's unprecedented. here you've got a durable dysfunctional relationship between these two leaders and no reset, i'm afraid. in other words, you need a new israeli prime minister and new american president to set it back on track. >> even if netanyahu is reelected for elections, for the balance of the obama administration nearly two years, you think there's going to be an anger? >> it doesn't have to get worse but whether it can get better. it's frosty. there's a sense of betrayal broken confidence and trust. there's an agreement, then you'll have to figure out a way
5:20 pm
to manage the relationship with the israelis. >> ari, what do you think? >> sure it's tough but relationships aren't between countries. if it was between people this relationship has been bad for a long time. only three months ago, called netanyahu a chicken, swear word in an interview they gave. they're both mature leaders and have to realize that if they're elected if two weeks. >> i was surprised, peter. i believe you were two. all of us at how bitter the language was from both of these leaders and direct and blunt, basically the israeli prime minister saying to the president of the united states we don't trust you because it's not just a matter of security for israel it's a matter of survival. >> benjamin netanyahu spent his entire political career wanting to be winston churchill. now talking about iraq as the
5:21 pm
nazis. every single year he's been in politics it's been 1938. president obama sees himself as richard nixon going to china to change the geopolitical map of iran. these are legacy questions. they can't back down. >> is that reasonable? for iran to change its attitude and cooperate, no longer support what the united states considers to be terrorist organizations, actually accept israel's right to exist, is that even doable? >> not a chance, wolf. this is a business deal. they need really something from sanctions and the obama administration needs something. preempting an israeli military strike and that seems to me an unsentimental bargain. this is not a transformation. >> where do we go from here, ari? >> two votes in congress will be crucial and a massive fight over those votes and a lot of democratic support for israel
5:22 pm
and the united states congress. i think that's what's next. i think there's also a chance to fundamentally redo the middle east. israel is a line behind the scenes echlsspecially, with the emirates with iran. that's so surprising that the president is willing to cut this deal with iran not only going to antagonize israel but arab allies at a time when we can form an unusual alliance in the middle east. >> i don't know if the speech by netanyahu today will make the prospect greater or reduce the prospect. they have a lot of work to do. >> barack obama doesn't think it's necessarily 50/50 but there does seem to be some progress here and i think you'll find if there is a deal the democrats will stand behind president obama and, you know, there's reporting that the israelis tried to get the leadership to come to netanyahu's speech. they didn't come. i think you'll find it likely to sell the deal. >> sell the deal. with an up and down vote
5:23 pm
whatever deal emerges, do you think it will pass? >> i'm not sure you'll get enough democrats basically to cross the line on this one. i think they feel offended and even humiliated with the tactics with respect to the invitation visit. >> ari flesher, thank you very much. ahead, breaking news. the u.s. justice department launching an investigation after michael brown's killing confirming now what many african-americans of ferguson missouri have long maintained. the city's police department is engaged in a widespread pattern of racial bias. the report is scathing. hey, girl. is it crazy that your soccer trophy is talking to you right now? it kinda is. it's as crazy as you not rolling over your old 401k. cue the horns... just harness the confidence it took you to win me and call td ameritrade's rollover consultants. they'll help with the hassle by guiding you through the whole process step by step. and they'll even call your old provider. it's easy. even she could do it. whatever, janet. for

5:27 pm
ari. u.s. justice department found a sweeping pattern of racial bias within the ferguson police department. the probe ordered by the attorney general earthquakeric holder after the fatal shooting of michael brown by darren wilson who was cleared by the grand jury. the full report by the justice department expected to be made public tomorrow. the first look though is
5:28 pm
sobering. investigators found ferguson police routinely violated the civil rights of african-americans by using excessive force and making unjustified traffic stops. officers also made racist jokes on their city e-mail accounts. the report found racial bias in the city's mew in this cal courthouse. our justice correspondent, evan perez, is here with me. the details are stunning when you look at this. >> it's a damning report. when we went to ferguson, we saw reports of their experience with the police department and now we have statistics from the justice department which indicate what those protesters said their experience is exactly what happened. we have a few of them right here. 85% of vehicles stopped made by the ferguson police departments were of african-americans. 93% of arrests were of african-americans. 90% of citations were
5:29 pm
african-americans and 88% of the times they put ferguson police department to use force, it was against african-americans. these are findings that the justice department is going to be releasing tomorrow as part to kick off a legal process to try to get some fixes made with the ferguson police department. >> it's hard to believe in this day and age but police officers court officials, they were circulating racist jokes, if you will racist comments on their official e-mail accounts. >> on their official e-mail accounts, wolf. there was one in 2008 after the election of president barack obama in which these, one official apparently sent an e-mail saying he didn't expect the president to last long in office because after all, which black man keeps a job for four years, is what the joke went. and again, there are other jokes being circulated according to the justice department. we expect they'll ask for a court-ordered process to be able to bring some fixes to the
5:30 pm
police department and the municipal courts which the city was using to basically tax african-american drivers who went through the city of ferguson. >> we know the outgoing attorney general eric holder wanted this report out while he was still the attorney general. he's wrapping up in the next few days but where do we go from here legally, what's next? >> legally, we expect there will be no charges announced tomorrow. they're going to close the books on darren wilson because that was a separate -- >> white police officer. >> the police officer who shot and killed michael brown. we expect they'll close the books on that investigation, wolf and legally, this will be a process of years trying to repair this police department and bring it to something that's serving and protecting the people of ferguson. >> evan perez thank you for the reporting. many residents will feel vindicated by the u.s. justice department report. whether or not they'll see police reforms as a result of this remains to be seen.
5:31 pm
tensions between police and the community have deep roots. when michael brown was shot dead ferguson was a powder keg ready to explode even if the rest of the country didn't realize it. here's cnn's randi kaye. >> what are you going to get justice? you see the whole city in an up roar. >> reporter: still in the weeks that followed brown's death, it became clear the anger here extended far beyond the shooting death of the unarmed teen. it had been brewing here for years. >> there's a broken trust between the government local police and the community. >> reporter: thousands took to the streets as nearly all-white ferguson police force tried to keep protests peaceful. though 60% of the population is black, there are just three black police officers in the city. three out of 53 officers. and their response tanks and
5:32 pm
tear gas, riot gear and rubber bullets, hardly bridge the racial divide in this community. >> this is what y'all do. this is unity. >> reporter: it only got worse from there. listen to what this officer says to protesters. >> bring it. [ bleep ] >> reporter: and there's more. ferguson police chief, who is white, refused to release the name of the police officer who shot and killed michael brown for days which only fueled more anger. >> we need to clean this up. if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem. >> reporter: many found the police chief tone deaf. >> it's never been the intention of the ferguson police department or of any police department that i know of to intentionally target individuals because of race. if there is that happening, it's a crime and it needs to be addressed. >> reporter: it was never really
5:33 pm
an "if." even before the michael brown shooting missouri's attorney general found in 2013 that ferguson police were twice as likely to arrest african-americans during traffic stops as they were whites. that same report also found that african-americans were the target of 92% of searches and 86% of traffic stops. after the initial miscues in ferguson captain ron johnson, who was black tried to calm down the protesters. >> if our intent is to make things better and ensure our kids know they're going to grow up in a better place and their voice means something, no matter what your race is no matter what your age is. >> reporter: in a city where the police chief, mayor and five of the city council members are white, promises like those tend to fall on deaf ears. randi kaye, cnn, new york. >> justice! >> michael brown's family long maintained the unarmed
5:34 pm
teenager's fatal shooting as a result of the systemic pattern of biassed policing. the attorney joining us now. the findings from the justice department what was your reaction when you read them? >> well as we said all along, we believed the tragic killing of this unarmed teenager in broad daylight was part of a bigger pattern, a systemic pattern within the ferguson community of how african-americans are policed, wolf. and so this really shows that the protesters the people who wanted their voices heard were correct in doing so because it was almost as if they knew if they didn't speak up it would be swept under the rug and continue to happen. what we want to see is not just officers held accountable but you want solutions real solutions because we don't want
5:35 pm
to keep having to bury our children at the hands of the people who are supposed to protect and serve them. >> have you spoken to michael brown's parents about this justice department report? if you did, what was their reaction? >> well we have not spoke at length about it wolf because as you know and you reported it's still not official yet. one of the things they have been on an emotional roller coaster through the grand jury proceedings, through losing their child in this tragic manner. you would want to hopefully, and pray wolf that they would be able to see that this is going to make it better for ferguson. this is going to make it better for the community. it does nothing to bring their child back to them and if the rumors are accurate the killer of their child is not going to
5:36 pm
be held criminally liable and that is a tough pill to swallow. but hopefully and preferably they can see this department of justice findings as something that they can say, well at least his death was not in vain. >> the racist jokes or comments that were being e-mailed by ferguson police not just police but court officials, as well as the fact they were sending them on their city e-mail accounts is pretty outrageous when you think about it in this day and age. i know you'll be in selma, alabama, this weekend, but give us some thoughts on that. >> well it really goes to where we're at in america. you know when president barack obama was elected, everybody all said we are now in a post-racial america and then you saw the tragic killing of trayvon martin and everybody said we still have a long way to go. but now, when you look at michael brown's death, you are
5:37 pm
continuing to ask yourself how will we fix this problem? everybody acknowledges wolf that there's a problem, but the question is what is the remedy? how do we get to solutions? there is an epidemic across america whether it's eric garner in new york to cleveland. people of color getting killed by police officers and nobody is being held accountable and so the consent degree is a good thing but we believe until some of these officers are held accountable criminally there's no deterrent and that is the problem. that's what the young people are telling me that they never get held accountable when they kill us attorney crump. >> i want to ask about the former mayor of ferguson. he said the statistics of this report are actually in line with
5:38 pm
ferguson's demographics because african-americans from surrounding communities routinely go in and out of ferguson making the daily population higher about 60%. what do you make about the assessment from the former mayor? >> there lies the problem. we have to start saying that we need to expect more of our leaders, of our police. we're going to not profile people. we're going to treat people as people as american citizens and we're not going to try to justify the excessive force. the pattern of racial discrimination. we're not going to do that anymore because that leads to tragedies like michael brown. what we're going to start doing is making sure that we have good police officers who are properly trained, who are properly supervised. nobody is against police we're against bad police because bad police kill our children and we got ourselves a problem and we
5:39 pm
want to find a solution. until we acknowledge that it is a problem. and we say we're going to find a solution as americans, we're never going to get beyond this. >> let's hope we do. it's a huge challenge, for our uncountry country right now. benjamin crump. thank you. up next live pictures of police headquartered in ferguson. i'll speak with st. louis alderman antonio french and our own sunny hostin. ♪♪ miranda: ♪ i got red dirt stains on my boots and jeans. ♪ ♪ calloused fingers from my guitar strings. ♪ ♪ wild like the wind in the tall pine trees. ♪ ♪ i got roots and i got wings. ♪ ♪♪ fact. when you take advil you get relief right at the site of pain.

picture coming in from police headquarters in ferguson missouri. tonight's breaking news. the justice department has completed its civil rights investigation of the city's police and the findings are damning, a widespread pattern of racial bias routinely violating the civil rights of african-americans by using excessive force and making unjustified traffic stops. investigators found racial bias in the city's courts. the full report is expected to be released as soon as tomorrow. joining us now, the st. louis
5:44 pm
alderman antonio french an important voice in the wake of michael brown's shooting and the former federal prosecutor sunny hostin. antonio, the people you've been talking to in ferguson what's been the reaction to the details of this report that we know about right now? >> well the overall theme of the report confirms what many people knew here for a long time. the level of, you know racial bias from the ferguson police department and neighboring police departments with something african-americans have known about for years but some of the specifics elicitedare listed in this report, including e-mails, which is shocking. we need a new level of accountability and some people need to lose their jobs. >> it's amazing. i know the statistics didn't surprise you but those e-mails. when you read some of those awful e-mails, really racist e-mails, hard to believe people in this day and age would write
5:45 pm
that on their official, i guess, city accounts. >> yeah. what it really shows i think is a culture that was allowed to thrive and continues to be allowed to thrive in st. louis county. i hope this makes the broader community aware of what so many african-americans have been protesting about, calling attention to in the last few months and leads to real action and change. >> sunny, you say you weren't surprised at all. why? >> when i was in ferguson covering this case what was fascinating to me wolf is that resident after resident after resident approached me and told me these very same things that they felt they were being targeted because they were african-american that they were being fined because they were african-american. they were being pulled over because they were african-american. and in fact the rental car agent from whom i rented my car told me a similar story.
5:46 pm
so i wasn't surprised at the findings and i think that now that we have the federal government the justice department the home of so many of the best of the best in terms of investigators, i hope now that this is some vindication for those residents, and i think that we really will see change, wolf because what we will see now is the justice department meeting with ferguson officials and, you know, trying to reach an agreement which is called a consent decree. and what usually happens is you get a monitor that comes in overseas wholesale reform. i mean we're talking about wholesale reform and generally, that does lead to people at the top losing their jobs because those are the people that have allowed this insidious culture to continue. if the ferguson police department does not agree to these changes, then the justice department will sue. so the result remains the same.
5:47 pm
the justice department is not going to lose a lawsuit. we will see the wholesale change and the last thing i want to say about it is it's not over in terms of charges or should not be over in terms of some sort of action against officer wilson because you have this wholesale discrimination involved at the ferguson police department and after looking at the grand jury transcript it's clear to me, wolf there was prosecutorial misconduct. there were problems with the grand jury and we should see some sort of state action. >> sunny, i'll ask antonio first, the reports, there will be no justice department civil rights charges against darren wilson the police officer. you've heard those reports, haven't you? >> there are a few leaks that
5:48 pm
prepared the community for a lack of action against officer wilson. and sunny would know better than i about the recourse the brown family would have but there have been people voicing their frustration to see real change and this d. ovmtoj report can lead to that and in order to better the quality of life of african-americans around here it's got to extend beyond the ferguson city limits. this kind of behavior is enacted by police departments all around ferguson and so what we need is change at the state level and also at the county level to make sure we have a new level of accountability with the way we police these african-american communities. >> we'll follow up on all of this tomorrow when this official report will be released. antonio french, sunny hostin, thank you very much. controversy over e-mail of

news. hillary clinton's team now responding to the controversy over the way she kept in touch with her staff and others while she served as secretary of state. turns out secretary clinton never used her state department e-mail account. that's because she never had an account set up and instead she used her personal e-mail account to conduct official government business and didn't routinely archive the e-mails. the questions tonight. did she break the law? is she hiding something? team clinton is now responding. >> reporter: one of the messages of hillary clinton is checking her e-mail on a trip to libya. we're learning it was likely her private e-mail because it appears clinton relied on a account while heading the state department. it's raising questions about whether clinton skirted the federal records act designed to preserve e-mails for federal and said clinton followed the rules.

it even though she's released some e-mails to the state department she has full control over this account. cyber experts say that means that in addition to security issues of not being protected, perhaps, they could have been deleted. and you would never know. so that's really certainly a concern i think of a lot of critics. >> i expect the story is not going away brianna. thank you very much. in the next hour of 360, more on the reaction of benjamin netanyahu's speech. he warned against the nuclear deal with iran. how's it playing out here as well as back in israel and tehran? that's next. sometimes the present looked bright. sometimes romantic. there were tears in my eyes. and tears in my eyes. and so many little things that we learned were really the biggest things. through it all, we saved and had a retirement plan. and someone who listened and helped us along the way.
