tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN May 29, 2015 2:00am-3:01am PDT
fixed rate of 3.1%. a stronger housing market and fed rate hike will likely push mortgage rates higher. "early start" continues right now. happening now, a new strategy to fight isis after a series of defeats, the u.s. is shifting its game plan on how to take down the terrorists. we will take you live to baghdad. the former speaker of the house now accused of paying to hide misconduct. new severe storms pounding texas as rescuers sift through the rubble to find flood victims. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. it is friday may 29th. christine romans is off today.
happening now, the obama administration says it is fine tuning the strategy in iraq. pentagon officials are looking for a way to bring sunni tribes into the fight against the islamic state militants. one possibility, the u.s. could begin arming sunni fighters directly. that would replace or supplement the current system where it goes through the shi'ite government in baghdad. this as forensic teams are trying to identify 500 bodies exhumed in tikrit. the bodies are believed to belong to military cadets that isis claims to have killed last year at a nearby military base. overnight in baghdad, at least nine people killed and 14 injured in twin car bomb blasts at hotels popular with officials and foreigners. standing by live in baghdad is senior international correspondent arwa damon. good morning, arwa.
>> reporter: good morning. we just sent a team out to both of those locations that were targeted overnight. extensive damage done to the front of the babylon hotel. security on the ground not allowing media close by. same situation at the other location the sheridan hotel although it changed its name. this is a clear message that isis may not have taken over this particular city violence still exists on a fairly regular basis. and a message that the targets that the two strikes were hotels that are very frequently stayed in by foreigners and vips. throwing into the question the iraqi security forces to keep these installations safe. when it comes to the u.s. arming the sunni tribes potentially without going through baghdad, that could cause some tensions.
at the end of the day, these tribes do need weapons. they have been asking for them for over a year. the government has promised to make good on that. bearing in mind the u.s. has gone through this with the sunni tribes before back in the days when it was fighting al qaeda. the isis predecessor. the sunni tribes turned on al qaeda and allied with the u.s. and they were fighting side by side in some instances. until that promise, that idea becomes a reality, it will be very difficult to convince the sunnis and shi'a government have their best interests at heart and are taking that into consideration. the longer this draws on the more alienated the sunnis grow and more difficult to bring them into the fold. >> not much connection with the disputing factions.
arwa thank you. new questions about the federal jury in chicago has indicted dennis hastert. the indictment stays he restructured bank withdrawals. says he paid $3.5 million in hush money to keep secret un unspecified misconduct. there was no answer on thursday when cnn knocked on the hastert door in illinois. former colleagues are reacting. >> i'm shocked and disheartened that dennis hastert found himself in the position to do something this drastic. he must have known it was illegal to do it in the way they structured it. on a personal level, shocked and dismayed. my heart goes out to his family. from the fbi perspective. >> you used to be an fbi agent.
>> i used to be an fbi agent. was he extorted likely the way it was written? individual aid is likely to have cooperated with the fbi at some point. there will be more story to told here. >> the 73-year-old hastert resigned his job as a lobbyist. less than three days remain until the intelligence program shuts down unless the lawmakers find a compromise. the white house says there is no plan b if the nsa is forced to shutdown the data collection and other programs. that puts pressure on the leaders before sunday night's deadline. cnn's michelle kosinski has the latest from the white house. >> reporter: the white house is continuing the push to try to get the senate to act before deadline to keep the parts of the patriot act up and running.
saying failing to do so is playing national security russian roulette. saying the fbi's work will be severely impacted. here is the press secretary. >> what our national security professionals told us is the programs provided valuable information in the past. these are critical tools to keep the american people safe. they use these tools to collect information that has not been otherwise available to them. that was then used to prevent individuals from carrying out acts of violence and to round up people who wished harm on the united states. >> reporter: that's what they have been saying. the thing is u.s. officials cannot point to a single case where the programs saved the day and thwarted terror. you look at the other programs besides the bulk phone data collection that will expire collecting bank and business and hotel records on individuals that is used about 200 times a year. officials say there are other ways to try to get that
information, but those ways are more limited and less secret. roving wire taps on people who switch cell phones. that is used less than 100 teams a year. officials do say the patriot act is the only way to do that. to effectively and quickly track those people. especially when you consider potential isis types. and lastly, wire taps on lone wolves. people not connected to any known terror group. we found out that has never even been used before and it only applies to people outside the u.s. not american lone wolves. the big question is our national security really going to be at risk? depends on whom you ask. the white house's take is why allow any risk? especially when the privacy concerns can be addressed with the bipartisan bill that the house already passed and the white house wants the senate to do the same. >> michelle kosinski at the white house. a lot of rhetoric on both sides
of the debate. the death toll is rising on the monster storms in flooding in texas and oklahoma. as of this morning, 23 people have been killed by tornadoes and flooding. 23 in texas and 6 in oklahoma. crews are scouring the wreckage of cars and homes in hays county. and searching for nine people still to be missing. with rain pouring down this morning and more in the forecast oday the danger has not passed. >> is the worst over? >> i don't think so. i would like to say it is but i'm not sure the worst is over because of the way the weather is running and we are so saturated in almost all parts of texas. >> this weather pattern hitting oklahoma hard. look at the town of lawton. more than 4 inches of rain fell there quickly. you see the water reaching up to the tops of car tires there. more severe weather in the forecast all the way through the weekend. meteorologist derek van dam has more from the weather center.
>> we have received so much rain across the plains that it issis even visible from space. this is the arkansas river. it flows toward the mississippi river. notice how its flooded its banks and small streams leading toward the arkansas river continue to expand past capacity and as this water continues to flow downstream to the mississippi, there is the potential of going forward. we have 157 location as long rivers and streams reporting flood stage conditions. we have flood watches and flood warnings ongoing from oklahoma to eastern portions of texas with more in rain in stores. there is improvement for next week. showers and thunderstorms forecast into the weekend. that includes saturday and sunday. oklahoma city to austin and even the possibility of severe
weather through the northern great lakes. back to you. derek, thank you. time now for an early start on money. stock futures are down. markets in asia and europe are mixed. wall street is waiting the gdp for the second quarter of the year. that number is expected to be negative. the rebound anticipated in second quarter. automakers are adding more cars to expand the takata recall last week. fiat and chrysler as well as ford and bmw added to the list. with automakers identifying which cars need to be fixed, the process will take a long time. years to complete. there is controversy surrounding a new contest to draw pictures of the prophet muhammad or are organizers trying to instigate violence?

police in phoenix are bracing for potential violence stemming from an anti-islam rally today outside of a mosque to feature the contest to draw pictures of the prophet muhammad. organizers are telling people to bring guns. two in texas were shot dead after they opened fire with assault rifles. sara sidner has more. >> reporter: it is the freedom of speech rally two. this is the second time they held a rally like. this before the rally outside the islamic center here in phoenix, they are planning on doing what is a prophet muhammad cartoon drawing contest similar to the one we saw three weeks ago in garland, texas. you remember what happened. there this is in response to what happened in garland, texas, when two men from here in phoenix who did attend one of the mosques here went and tried
to gun police down. they ended up dying themselves at the hands of the officer who stopped them from being able to get into the rally. police believing they were trying to get into the prophet muhammad drawing contest in garland. this one will be peaceful. they are holding it to send a message. they put something on their facebook page. quote, people are encouraged to come to the rally to display their second amendment rights as if the first is under attack. the second is the right to bear arms and the first is freedom of speech. there is concern at the mosque when they are holding it on friday when evening prayers is happening. some people will not show up. we were able to interview someone who spoke on behalf of the community here about the concerns that those who come to
this mosque and frequent this mosque have. >> recently the mosques in phoenix received threatening letters. specific threats. this is all happened within the last week. this adds to the intersection of islamaphobia and gun culture. when we see these, this is more of a concern. now people are saying maybe we shouldn't go over there. we are advising people from our organization it is better to stay clear from the event and don't engage. >> reporter: the folks on the islamic american relations said there was a threat this week. a written threat to the imam and the congregation. there is a bit of concern for those who come to the mosques, especially on friday a day of prayer. we can tell you there will be security. we know from the phoenix police itself and they have surveyed the area and they will be here during the rally. >> sara sidner in phoenix.

i can see it. i wasn't there when all this happened. it started in the first term when we pulled back and disengaged in the world. >> shotgun is a passing offense that the heisman goes to a running back. the clinton campaign will bring out the big guns on june 13th. that is when bill and chelsea will make their first appearance at the campaign trail. clinton aides expect to release details on the rally next week. for the second straight year the national spelling bee has co- champions. 13-year-old vanya shivashankar spelled the word scherenschnitte. the art of cutting paper in decorative designs. her co- champ, 14-year-old gokul venkatachalam had nunatak. that is a word known as a hill or mountain surrounded by a

the united states is it shifting its strategy in the fight against isis? the new fine tuned plan as iraqis try to take back territory seized. once the most powerful man in the united states. former house speaker dennis hastert indicted. accused of lying to the fbi about hush money withdrawals. the strange details ahead. new storms targeting texas. the state devastated by historic flooding and the rain is not over yet. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. christine romans is off today. 30 minutes past the hour. happening now, the obama administration says it is fine tuning the isis stranktegy in iraq. the way to bring sunni tribes
into the fight against islamic state militants. one consideration, arming sunni fighters directly to replace or supplement the current system where weapons go through the shi'ite dominated government in baghdad. this news coming as iraqi forensic teams try to identify nearly 500 bodies exhumed in tikrit. officials believe the bodies belong to iraqi military cadets that isis claims killed last year. also overnight in baghdad, at least nine people killed and 14 injured in twin car bomb blasts at two luxury hotels popular with officials and foreigners. a lot of developments overnight. standing by in baghdad is senior correspondent arwa damon. >> reporter: we sent crews out to the two sites of the attacks overnight. security forces not allowing
anyone nearby but the damage done by the two massive explosions. quite extensive. an example of just how difficult it is and how incapable the iraq iraqi security forces are at protecting the installations. both hotels have a checkpoint before you enter where vehicles are supposed to be searched. we saw two vehicles manage to breach the defenses put into place. we are talking about the effort by the u.s. to possibly arm the sunni tribes. the tribes some of them are already involved in the fight, but the problem they have is of course weapons. they have light weapons. they can hardly make a significant stance against isis. the sunni tribes have been pleading with anyone to provide them with weapons for well over a year because isis entered these areas before it took down and stormed into mosul.
the iraqi government has been promising the sunnis it will arm them but has yet to make good on the pledge. if the u.s. directly arms these tribes it could cause harm. back in the days when they were fighting al qaeda and the sunnis in anbar province decided to turn against al qaeda not wanting to live under al qaeda rule and arming themselves with a degree of the u.s. but at this stage, the sunnis feel as the americans and the u.s.-led coalition and the government have abandoned them to a certain degree by allowing large swaths of anbar and ramadi to fall. time is of the essence in all of this to say the least, john. if those tribes are not armed, they will grow more disenchanted with the united states and shi'a government and they feel as if there was a deliberate attempt to have anbar fall and punish
them for having isis enter their territories. we were speaking with some of those who were able to flee the isis onslaught in ramadi. they are living in makeshift camps in baghdad. being cared for largely by the community. a lot of these communities, john have been through this before. they know what it is like to be displaced. they empathize with those who had to flee from anbar and flee isis and ramadi. a great number of refugees telling us the security and safety of the relatives that were left behind. it is unclear how many civilians remain in ramadi but there are neighborhoods that isis took over well over a year ago when it first entered ramadi and civilians have not been allowed to leave those areas. if they try, they threatened with death. the concern, according to one individual who we spoke to his relatives are stuck in one of
the neighborhoods. isis deliberately using them as human shields. >> tough situation. very little trust there which would make things better. arwa damon, thanks. new questions about why a federal grand jury in chicago indicted dennis hastert on charges of financial misconduct and lying to the fbi. hastert once one of the most powerful men in america. he restructured bank withdraws. it says he paid $3.5 million in hush money to keep secret unspecified misconduct that dates as far as his high school wrestling coach days. there was no response when cnn knocked on his door in illinois. former colleagues speak out. >> i'm shocked that dennis hastert found himself in a position to do something this
drastic. he must have known it was illegal to do it in the way they structured it because that is the way they structured it. on a personal level, shocked and dismayed. my heart goes out to his family. from the fbi agent perspective. >> you used to be an fbi agent. >> i did. lots of questions. was he extorted likely the way they written the indictment where individual a is likely to cooperate with the fbi at some point in the investigation. i think there is more story to be told here. >> one of the most popular speakers and members in washington. considered very low key. took on a job as a lobbyist after he left the house. he has now resigned that position. interesting to see what happens over the next few days. this morning, less than three days remain before major u.s. intelligence programs shutdown unless lawmakers find a compromise. the white house says there is no plan b if the nsa is forced to
shutdown the bulk data collection and other programs. this puts stress on the congressional leaders with the deadline sunday night. you know congress doesn't like working on the weekend. cnn's michelle kosinski with the latest. >> reporter: the white house is continuing the push to try to get the senate to act before deadline to keep the parts of the patriot act up and running. saying that failing to do so is like playing national security russian roulette. unnecessary risk. saying the fbi work will be impacted. here is the press secretary. >> what the professionals have told us these are programs that provided valuable information in the past. these are critical tools used to keep the american people safe. they use these tools to collect information that has not been otherwise available to them and used to prevent individuals from carrying out acts of violence and to round up people who wished harm on the united states. >> reporter: that's what they have been saying.
the thing is u.s. officials cannot point to a single case where the programs saved the day and thwarted terror. when you look at the other programs besides the bulk phone data collection that will expire things like collecting bank and business and hotel records on individuals. it is used about 200 times a year. officials say there are other ways to try to get that information, but those ways are more limited and less secret. roving wire taps are people who switch cell phones. that is used less than 100 times a year. officials say the patriot act is the only way to do that. effectively and quickly track those people. especially when you consider potential isis types. lastly, wire taps on lone wolves. people not connected to any terror group. we found out that has never been used before and it only applies to people outside the u.s. not
american lone wolves. this big question of is our national security really going to be at risk? depends on whom you ask. the white house's take is why allow any risk? especially when privacy concerns can be addressed with the bipartisan bill that the house already passed and the white house wants the senate to do the same. >> michelle kosinski for us at the white house. time for an early start on your money. stock futures are slipping ahead of the open. the gdp will be out later this morning. that number expected to show a decline in economic growth in the first quarter. google wants your money. the company launching android pay. the answer to apple pay. tech insiders say it is a big improvement from google wallet. google has been working on android pay. it will work at more than 700,000 stores across the united states. 38 minutes after the hour.
