tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN May 18, 2015 2:00am-3:01am PDT
"early start" continues right now. the key iraqi city falls to isis. ramadi now in terrorists hands. now can the u.s. and coalition forces respond? we have a live report moments away. a key isis figure is dead. his wife is now in american custody following a risky raid in syria. the pair suspected of having top level intelligence. we will tell you what the u.s. is picking up. the northeast corridor reopens this morning. trains running for the first time since the deadly crash along that corridor. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. nice to see you. it is monday may 18th. 5:00 a.m. in the east. developing this morning, a major victory for isis in iraq. ramadi falls to isis fighters.
after months of clashes, iraqi officials say isis forces burst through gates and walls with bulldozers. iraqi and american officials say the fight for ramadi is not over yet. i want to bring in the latest with nick paton walsh. >> reporter: christine. a devastating setback for the iraqi government. the capital of anbar province. it was the focus of baghdad. now they are the ones in retreat. video showing the military of them pulling away from the capital. pictures taken of isis of the amount of armor left behind. this began as a suicide bombing campaign. they used bulldozers to force
into the center. the iraqi forces have been fighting for weeks to prevent this overrunning. were unable to hold back. now in a troubling moment where the government appealed to shi'a militia to come in and try to push isis back. reports that iran's defense minister has flown into baghdad. perhaps to try to offer assistance iran can offer here. the issue is also how long advertised this potential issue has been because the fight has been going for a long period of time. there have not been adequate resources. we are hearing about 500 people may have lost their lives in the fight alone. thousands have fled. 100,000 have fled in the past months or so. fears are in the next 24 to 48 hours, isis will purge the city of anyone they think will have ties to the enemy.
also a fear that the momentum has switched. the propaganda value will not be lost for isis. many fear what may happen in the weeks ahead in ramadi and to the north in baghdad as well. >> what did isis do? look at kobani and tyikrit. what was the driving force to take this particular city? >> reporter: it may well be the narrative of isis on the backfoot was a little too pervasive and within the iraqi government. the victory the iraqi government had in tikrit. the violence has been unrelenting and the refugees away from it. this was pretty well telegraphed as a failure. many have been surprised by the strength of the final isis
onslaught. it shows prowess. then snap move in and finish the campaign for ramadi. there are questions of where the extra strength came from and what they managed to do and potentcy. now they have all of the iraqi equipment that was left in the forces. >> originally supplied by the americans. a bitter irony. u.s. officials are assessing a trove of intelligence seized in a special forces raid said to kill a key isis commander. about a dozen delta force commandos raided a building in syria. the commander known as abu sayyaf died. officials say sayyaf helped run the oil and gas operation. he was a key military leader as well. officials say there were no u.s.
or civilian casualties in the raid. u.s. troops also said to capture sayyaf's wife and secure documents and equipment u.s. hopes to be of intelligence use. cnn's sunlen serfaty is at the white house. >> reporter: john and christine, the administration is characterizing this as a significant blow to isis but there are a significant amount of questions that still remain. who was the man the administration is referring to as sayyaf. who was he really? how big of a role and how much of an influence in isis? the basic question is what actually is his real name? some lawmakers are capitol hill are urging caution, especially when it comes to balancing the risk of a mission like this against the reward. >> this was an extraordinary risk. if one of our people were captured if we lost some of our special forces there would be tough questions to answer whether it was worth it. i think notwithstanding the
success of the operation, we have to ask those questions. was the intelligence value we hope to gain and we are gaining worth this risk. >> reporter: and other lawmakers are praising this coming from the administration. here is what the chairman of the intelligence committee had to say. >> we are praising this tactic. this is a better way of gathering intelligence. it takes guts for the administration and our military to put action like this together. it was successful. we are happy that they got back and got back safely. now over the coming weeks, we will know what they were actually able to gather. >> reporter: and u.s. officials say there was a lot of intelligence picked up from the mission site. including a computer which could have valuable information on how they communicate and raise money. in addition to the wife of the isis leader who has been
detained and now innterrogated by the united states. lawmakers expect to receive a briefing on the white house this week. john and christine. >> sunlen serfaty, thank you. less than an half hour from now, amtrak rail service resumes between new york and philadelphia a week after a rail disaster. first train leaving new york rolls out at 5:30 a.m. the northbound train leaves philadelphia at 5:53. over the weekend, new speed controls on the northbound side of the tracks ahead of the curve as a first step toward improved safety. cnn's jean casarez joins us from new york where travelers are getting said to board the first train out. good morning, jean. >> reporter: good morning. christine, this is such great news for so many travelers. 750,000 passengers per day on the northeast corridor. 5:30 right here at penn station.
the first train will leave bound for philadelphia. philadelphia's first train is 5:53 a.m. here is the reality. there isn't anybody here. you know at 6:30 last night is when amtrak first sent out that tweet saying they would restore the service. so possibly word hasn't gotten out. people made arrangements. service has been restored. the president and ceo of amtrak says they have been working around the clock to restore the structure and there are automated speed controls in the section where the train runs. also the status of the investigation as people will be restored to normal train travel the fbi will be on scene today to look at the windshield of that train to see if a projectile or a bullet went through the windshield. ironically ironically at the same time,
two other trains also reported a projectile had gone through the windshield or hurl at the train. one at a amtrak train and then a septa. the ntsb confirmed the engineer of the affected train did not radio in a projectile happened. the investigation continues. as the passengers continue to come this morning, there will be elation they can have the normal train traffic. christine. >> jean, reiterate for me. different reports in the same area at the same time projectiles on trains. >> reporter: that's right. very close in time. very close in location. what's interesting is it's different lines. another amtrak train, but
different regional line. the the corroborate there. the question is did a projectile or something hit the train? if so how did it effect the speed at all? >> interesting. i know that investigation is continuing. thank you, jean casarez. ten minutes after the hour. a deadly shootout in waco texas. gunfire at a restaurant between five rival biker gangs. the bullets finally stopped flying and nine people were dead. police say they heard there might be able at the twin peaks restaurant. they say they were prepared. >> we were so concerned of the incidents that may occur here that we had active s.w.a.t. officers on scene. i can tell you at this point
that their action has saved lives in keeping this from spilling into a crowded central marketplace. i'm glad the officers were here to save numerous lives. >> one question is that officials knew this was going to happen and why did they allow it to take place. workers and customers hid in the freezer when the gunfire started. only the bikers were killed. a u.s. marine killed in a training mission in hawaii. 22 marines were on the osprey in oahu when the military says the helicopter was involved in a hard landing and caught fire. no word this morning on the 21 marines taken to the hospital or the identity of the one who
died. a five-day cease-fire is over in yemen. it did not take long for air strikes to ramp up. they hit houthi targets overnight in aden. politicians and tribal leaders gathered for talks, but the houthis boycotted the meeting. they are restricting the assistance of the exiled leader is reinstated. u.s. stock futures are barely budging. the s&p ended last week at a record high. powering ahead. consumers from walmart and target will have numbers in. gas prices are rising. $2.71 per gallon. much lower than this time last year. drivers saved hundreds of dollars because of lower oil prices. 40% spent that money on
groceries or rent. 23% saved or invested. what did you do? >> "early start" tattoo. they can run a lot of money if you get a lot of colors. >> john. 12 minutes after the hour. the iraq war proving to be an interesting discussion point for presidential can't candidates. this time marco rubio in a feisty exchange. we will show it to you next. smel way at boa school. surround yourself with up to 6 hours of luxurious, long-lasting scents... ...introducing new unstopables air refresher. why do we do it? why do we spend every waking moment, thinking about people? why are we so committed to keeping you connected? why combine performance with a conscience? why innovate for a future without accidents? why do any of it? why do all of it? because if it matters to you it's everything to us.

wallace on whether the 2003 invasion of iraq was a mistake. >> it was not a mistake. the president based on -- this is the way the world works -- the president based on the information provided. look. >> he was saying based on what we know now. >> based on what we know now, i wouldn't thought manny pacquiao would beat mayweather in the fight. >> you got asked the same question. you said -- >> it was not the same question. the question was whether it was a mistake. my answer is it is not a mistake. i still say it is not a mistake. the president was presented with intelligence of iraq had weapons of mass destructions and committed by a man who committed atrocities. >> was it a mistake to go to war in iraq. >> it was not a mistake what the president knew at the time. that's not the same question. the question i was asked was what it a mistake now. >> was it a mistake to go to
war. >> that's not the same question. >> that's the question i'm asking you. >> it was not a mistake for the president to decide to go to iraq. at the time. >> i'm asking you -- >> in hindsight. i don't know the question you're asking. >> a president cannot make a decision on what someone might know in the future. >> last week rubio said he would not have authorized a war what is now known in iraq. his point is presidents don't have the benefit of 20/20 hindsight. >> it is tough for candidates to answer. iraq is a complicated issue. the way they answer should be important. >> it is relevant because ramadi fell to isis. let's talk basketball. the houston rockets moving on.

iraqi government. a third of the territory was in the sights. quite the opposite has now occurred. the attack started sunday morning. 13 suicide bombers forced their way in. and the fighting that proceeded the final onslaught were not enough warning for the iraqi government to reinforce the forces there. pictures of the military in retreat saying they were unable to hold positions. some say they lacked ammunition and the golden decision part of the withdraw here. 500 said to have been killed in the fighting. fears in the 24 to 48 hours ahead that ramadi will be purged of the iraqi government of what isis does when it takes population centers like this. a key moment for baghdad to how to turn the tide back? hard to retake the urban place
like this. the prime minister is saying he will allow shi'a militia to move into the city now. they have been effective in the past but the methods have been brutal at times. a real turning point and certainly in terms of the information where isis tries to win in circumstances like this. they are increasingly close to baghdad and holding an area predominately sunni. a complex task for washington to assist their ally. >> nick paton walsh, thank you. officials are assessing a trove of intelligence seized in a special operations raid that killed a key isis commander. officials say a dozen army delta commanders raided the building in syria. the commander a bu sayyaf died
in the raid. he was leading the gas and oil funds. they steal the gas and oil. he had a military role as well. officials say there were no u.s. or civilian casualties. u.s. troops captured sayyaf's wife and documents and cell phones. we have sunlen serfaty at the white house with more. >> reporter: john and christine, the administration is calling this a significant blow to isis. there are a significant amount of questions remaining. who was the man the administration is referring to as sayyaf. who was he? how big of a role and how much of an influence did he have on isis? the basic question is what is his name. the lawmakers on capitol hill are urging caution, especially when it comes to balancing the risk of the mission against the reward. >> this was an extraordinary
risk. if one of our people were captured or if we lost some of the special forces. there would be tough questions to answer whether it was worth it. i think notwithstanding the success of the operation, we have to ask the questions. was the intelligence value worth this risk. >> reporter: other lawmakers are praising the move from the administration. here is what the chairman of the house intelligence committee had to say. >> we have been advocating this tactic for a long time. this is a better way to gather intelligence versus air strikes. it takes guts for the administration and military to put an action like this together. it was successful. we are happy they got back and got back safely. now over the coming weeks, we will know what they were actually able to gather. >> reporter: u.s. officials say there was a lot of intelligence. reams of data picked up from the mission site. including a computer which could
have valuable information on how isis operates and how they raise their money and communicate. that's of course in addition to the wife of the isis leader who has been detained and will now be interrogated by the united states. lawmakers on capitol hill do expect to receive a briefing from the white house on this situation this week. >> sunlen serfaty at the white house. we showed you pictures of an amtrak train leaving new york from philadelphia. that was the first time that a train has done that. headed off in that direction since the disaster last week that killed eight people and injured more than 200. the first train left from new york at 5:30 a.m. northbound train leaves philadelphia headed up here at 5:53. over the weekend, technicians installed new automated speed controls on the northbound side of the tracks at the curve where train number 188 crashed less than a week ago. cnn's jean casarez joins from us
penn station. jean that train left minutes ago. >> reporter: it was so exciting. they let us go down to the tracks. the people came and boarded. it wasn't a lot of people but 5:31 is when the train left the tracks. it was all aboard. there they went. you know we spoke to passengers. one man saying he was so excited that he finally would be able to get his train travel back. he said last week cost him over $1,000 because he had to fly to d.c. and several times. so economically, he is glad this has been restored. we know the ceo of amtrak said his workers have been around the clock to restore the infrastructure so the trains could start running today. we know the fbi is going to be on the scene today to look at what possibly happened to the windshield of the affected train. if you look at it it appears as though a projectile or a bullet. there will be fbi analysis on
that. ironically, another amtrak train and another line the pennsylvania train reported and radioed in they had a projectile hit their train. the question is what happened to this train? the engineer did not radio in the ntsb is saying that anything hit the train. what did happen? they developed that through analysis. the causal connection of something hitting that train and speeding up. john. >> one of the areas they are looking into right now. jean casarez at penn station where a train left moments ago. the first train to ride that northeast corridor since the disaster one week ago. a deadly shootout in waco texas. a gunfire erupting sunday between five rival biker gangs. when the bullets stopped flying nine people were dead. police say they heard there may
