tv CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield CNN September 11, 2022 11:00am-12:00pm PDT
edinburgh, lying in residence at the palace of holyroodhouse. the coffin making a solemn six-hour trip from her balmoral estate. thousands lining the streets along the 100-plus-mile journey through the scottish countryside to pay their respects. there were huge crowds along edinboro. her funeral will be held at westminster abby september 19th. we have full coverage of today's events. let's begin with nic robertson and today's events and what comes next. >> reporter: yeah, it was about 10:00 in the morning here uk time when the queen's cortege
left balmoral before getting to the city of aberdeen and swung south. already it had taken two hours to get to aberdeen, a drive that would take 45 minutes. it was going slow through the villages so people could pay their respects and from aberdeen through stone haven onwards to dundee to perth and here to edinburgh, here this was just a sea of people and as the queen's cortege arrived, we were talking to people here, so many of them had come to pay their respects, the queen's service to the country. how much it meant to them and this was their way of reflecting it back and paying her some respect. the old, the not so old and the young.
this is some of what they told us. >> wonderful, just wonderful. it's just wonderful to be here. >> my mom and i will not be here. she's 88 and is in quite poor health. it's really important despite not being very well to make today's presence. >> i think king charles will do an unbelievable job and he will do just as good as the queen, hopefully. i think the queen -- >> reporter: i think that's the sentiment you hear a lot, the queen has set such a high standard obviously for the young people. it is king charles who will sort of be around through the early parts of their lives. but that elderly lady, 88 years old, and as her daughter said in poor health but she wanted to come out.
her husband apparently had been a member of the military doing service during the queen's coronation. the queen touched so many hearts today. >> indeed. it's evident, the variation of generations that would come out. as you're holding the umbrella with the rain and the weather the way it is. thank you so much. let me check with you, nina dell santos, what have you been seeing there? >> reporter: well, fredricka, thousands of people have been waiting in line for hours, some more than four hours to pay their respects to get a couple moments to get to the gates of buckingham palace to have a moment to lay a floral tribute and to pay their respects to the monarch, the only monarch that many of these people have known does their lifetime.
the youngest was 8 months old. there are many institutions in this country that bear the name royal and i met a music student who said i am a student at the royal college of music. she sung for the queen here at the gates outside buckingham palace this is what she had 10 say. despite being only 24 years old she still felt so keenly about the loss of a 96-year-old sovereign last week. >> i am so grateful to have been alive for 24 years during your reign and it gives me pleasure to be a student at the royal academy of music where you are our patron. sort of a grandmother to us all. it's not just a loss of a monarch, it's a loss of like a family member. i think the last time we really felt this was with princess diana. >> reporter: many of the people in the crowds here behind me have been lining up to get a glimpse of their new king, king charles iii.
they were rewarded with that when he moved with his procession to his official residence for the moment nearby clarence house about an hour or so ago. a big cheer went up in the crowd every time you saw him. for him today was all about shoring up support and that relationship with the commonwealth. 14 countries that have a huge history with the british monarchy, and he met with leaders of those countries. tomorrow he'll be in parliament in westminster hall before heading up to edinburgh in scotland. fredricka? >> so many feeling that affinity. nic robertson and nina dos santos, we appreciate it. let's bring in julie montague, a royal commentator and an american married to the heir of the earl of sandwich. the queen's casket is in edinburgh and we saw people line the streets all along this procession. tell us about this special
connection that she had in scotland with the scots there and why they feel so connected to her. >> she was the queen of great britain and that includes scotland. i've had two children attend university of he hedinburgh. the only mon argue they have ever known. to pay respect to the longest serving monarch. the old, the young in an extraordinary way.
to see people line up watching her go by and throwing out flowers in front of the hearse to see love and gratitude to this sensational woman. >> i mean, these ten days of mourning, it's steeped in tradition, but at the same time do you see in people or an anticipation perhaps of a page turning of the monarchy? >> reporter: i definitely see a page turning. >> in what way? >> reporter: i see it with we are going to see, i think that we will see much more of prince -- well, king charles iii and the new prince of wales.
doing their charities supports together. we will be seeing much more of the princess of wales with the queen consort. he knows that he will be connecting as an extension to this older yen racial but he knows that he needs prince william, hugely popular. to build a modern damy monarchy. >> a bridging of those in the commonwealth and within the monarchy. that's what i hear you describing. >> reporter: absolutely. and i think yesterday, who know what is will happen after we saw those scenes yesterday with harry and meghan and katherine and william. i think that shocked everybody. the hope is there's some type of reconciliation with the two brothers. that is what everybody wants to
see. perhaps we will see meghan and harry doing a little bit more in the uk with william and with katherine. yes, they're not senior working royals but it doesn't mean that they can't also come over here and, again, do events with both the prince and princess of wales. there are already coming over here with charities they support. they are popular, they really are. >> i heard that with one of the biographies that was a moment to see the four of them together and what a moment it is that there's probably some talks already in motion about how to bring them back into the fold so that everybody is happy and that feeling of unity is conveyed. julie montagu, thank you so

to cool its reactors. the plant is occupied by russian forces and has been the scene of shelling for weeks now. let's get to cnn's sam kiley in izium. what is happening? >> reporter: a small correction, i'm an hour away from izium. izium is still being secured following the announcement the government have captured it. we've been talking to people on the ground there. there are still pockets of russian forces and, of course, a very serious problem with mines and booby traps and that has been the pattern in almost all of the towns and villages that the ukrainians have recaptured in the last 48 hours. the counter offensive in the northeast. we were covering the counter offensive in the south and that offensive has also been continuing a pace but nothing like the level of success in the south we've seen and in the
north with the government claiming many thousands of square kilometers of territory that have been recaptured and liber liberated. they are not retreating in good order. a large amounts of tanks, other armor weaponry and drones have been abandoned in one case social media posting pictures of a drone they've at that point toured captured with instruction booklets. this army clearly in retreat at least for the time being. focus their attentions and efforts in the donbas. the loss of izium and the main supply routes, some of which go into russian territory itself is a very serious blow indeed from the russians.
critical to keep that momentum up and on the run with the hope perhaps ultimately of actually breaking the will of that russian army to even be in ukraine. that ultimately is the ukrainian general's main target to drive the russians out completely. >> thank you so much. ukrainian president zelenskyy spoke with cnn's fareed zakaria and said he won't be satisfied with just holding off russian forces. >> translator: you know that our goal is to deoccupy our whole territory. the main goal is the occupation, we cannot allow russia to continue the same occupation that they started back in 2014. now they invaded some more. time passes, they become stronger and then they keep
moving forward again. >> let's talk more, a global affairs analyst and a staff writer for "the new yorker." so good to see you. ukraine recaptures areas that were occupied by russia. how big of a turning point might this be? >> the most significant change in momentum since the conflict back in february when russia tried with its lightning strike. it was russia that was advancing and what's notable is that then the conflict seemed to settle into a war of attrition but just in a few days' time ukraine has shown what the combination of this enormous flow of weapons from the west, a few months to plan and organize this operation. that combination of factors of dramatically changing the
situation on the ground where the russians have found themselves unexpectedly and unpreparedly it seems under attack. >> ukraine recapturing those spaces along the russian border. one has to wonder how much this might complicate russia's ability to supply front lines. >> a key logistics and transportation hub including izium which you mentioned earlier. to mount operations elsewhere in occupied ukraine. certainly it puts them on the defensive. vladimir putin looks wildly out of touch and despite the propaganda still do have the ability to understand what's happening in russian language,
other apps, they are complaining about this. an interesting "new york times" report, putin was holding a photo-op at a ferris wheel the other day. he looks very out of touch to me and his military has not performed well in this war so far. >> isn't that part of his strategy and has it not been all along to send one message to kind of juxtapose what the reality is particularly inside russia. everything is okay here. nothing to see over there. >> i certainly think you are right he does not want the russian people to feel this is something impeding their lives that he's held off calls for general mobilization, for example. he may need to do that at some point if he wishes to continue to pursue his offensive military goals in ukraine. he doesn't want that to bleed
into life in russia because there are these enormous sanctions from the west, the economy is reeling from being cut off. putin is eager to show this has not destabilized his own country. >> how long can ukraine sustain itself this way? largely might it be because of the flood of u.s.-supported arsenal that has come in country? >> yeah, there's no question the flow of weaponry to ukraine from the united states and other allies has been enormous, significant, has made a difference in their capabilities. the united states cannot replace the ukrainian people and the morale of the ukrainian people, very unified resistance even now months into the conflict, you look at opinion surveys. they are strongly still supporting not only zelenskyy
but the cause of pushing out the russian invaders. that's the key thing here. these gains will be an enormous boost to ukrainians wondering if they can keep fighting along. the fears, of course, remain on the part of the western allies if putin is successful in driving up gas prices in western europe this winter and fall as the colder weather comes. will that break the resolve of partners to keep supplying ukrainian military but at this point the weapons are obviously making a difference. there's a sense that many of them were used on the ground in this lightning fast offensive. >> all right, we'll leave it there for now. susan glasser, good to see you. thanks so much. coming up, a somber remembrance 21 years after the terror attacks of september 11th. how the president and vice president are paying their respects.

today marks 21 years since the september 11th terror attacks. ♪ president biden and other top u.s. officials paying their respects to the nearly 3,000 people killed in new york city, shanksville, pennsylvania, and at the pentagon. for more let's go to cnn's joe johns at the white house. joe, how was this day remembered? >> reporter: fred, the president, the vice president, be the first lady appearing
separately, each at one of the locations where hijacked planes went down on september 11th, 2001. the vice president in new york city, the first lady appearing in shanksville, pennsylvania, and the president right here in the washington area appearing at the pentagon with the chairman of the joint chiefs as well as the secretary of defense. the president using his own unique experience and relationship with grief to offer some consolation to the families of the victims. listen. >> for all of how have lost someone, 21 years is a lifetime and no time at all. it's good to remember. these memories help us heal. they can also open up the hurt and take us back to that moment when the grief was so raw. >> reporter: politically the
president once again touching on an issue he's talked about before, the need to preserve and protect democracy but staying away from some of the more inflammatory language that has caused controversy in the continuing run-up to the mid-term elections. also today before that speech the president was asked about the families of the victims and their quest for justice. the president said he had a plan for that but did not elaborate. five of the individuals including one man, khalid shaikh mohammed, who calls himself the mastermind of 9/11, remain in guantanamo bay and have not yet faced trial. fred? >> joe johns, thank you so much, at the white house. so family members of those killed at the world trade center gathering in lower manhattan this morning to honor their lost
loved ones. >> laura angeletta -- >> cnn's polo sandoval is at the 9/11 memorial with more. >> reporter: fred, good afternoon, a day of solemn remembrance. they mark now 21 years since that awful day. on hand vice president kamala harris leading a delegation of dignitaries also on hand including, also, eric adams, the mayor of new york city as they read out loud each one of the nearly 3,000 names, each one echoing through that memorial plaza. wemayorka and the threat and how it has evolved
from not just threats abroad but domestically. >> back 20 years ago when this department was formed, the greatest threat we faced was the foreign terrorists who tried to q come into our country and do harm. we're seeing violent extremism, individuals driven to violence because of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives. >> reporter: there were also six key moments of silence meant to acknowledge when each of the world trade center towers was struck and when they fell, when the plane hit the pentagon and when flight 93 crashed in the field in shanksville, pennsylvania. the families still dealing with grief but at the same time many of them celebrating the memories of their loved ones as they are
shining a light on the memories of those that they lost 21 years ago. tonight the tributes will continue, the two very powerful beams of light that will be shooting up into the sky. you can expect that from dusk to dawn. back to you. >> thank you so much, polo sandoval. joining sus us is george pataki was the governor on that fateful day. good to see you, governor. governor, are you able to hear me? all right. we're going to try to work out the audio. it looks like the shot is frozen there. we will come right back to the governor. you go by lots of titles. veteran, son, dad. -it's time to get up. -no. hair stylist and cheerleader. so adding a “student” title mimight feel overwhelming. bubut what if a school could be there for all of you?

new york on that fateful day 21 years ago when terrorism struck this country. governor, so good to see you. i think we worked out our signal here. >> nice to be on with you, thank you. >> we heard the president of the united states, biden, say at the pentagon today 9/11 was like a lifetime and also like no time at all. for you, do you feel like you replay the events that day, the terrorism that struck this country and the city of new york? 21 years ago, do you replay it in your mind over and over again? >> absolutely. you can't help but see the families this morning as the names were read and it just breaks your heart 21 years later for someone who lost their son or daughter or mother or father,
it's yesterday. you feel the pain that they're going through and understand the magnitude of the loss. it's always a difficult day. you look at how new york has come together and rebounded and you have a sense of pride that through all that horror and suffering, we came back stronger than anyone could have possibly thought. >> so many continue to try to get through what happened 21 years ago, like you said. you really can't escape it. the country has made a lot of efforts to make this country safer. estimates say the u.s. spent hundreds of billions on increased defense, combatting terrorism. do you feel enough has been done? >> i feel like a lot has been done but i think, and i'm relatively certain of this, the fact the southern border is so open leaves us highly vulnerable. there is no question people on the terrorism watch list, that people want to go do harm, are
cross that go border coming here not to build a better life but to try to take away our freedom. much has been done, so long as we don't know, we don't control, we know there are criminals, drug dealers, there are terrorists crossing the southern border. i fear those who attacked us before are going to try to do it again. >> you have said that, you believe this is an example of how president biden is failing. so what do you want to happen? >> i think there are two things. first, i want to see us go back to the policies that had the border essentially shut down to illegals before president biden took office. i want to see leadership that unites us. one of the few positives was the sense of unity, that we weren't republicans, democrats, black, white, young, old. we were americans.
we were attacked, we stood together and rebuilt together. today we need leadership that instead of trying to divide us for short-term partisan benefit look to unite us for long-term public benefit. i fear that has been lacking in washington. we need it desperately. the american people understand divided we're not going to succeed. when we come together we can accomplish anything. >> do you feel like it's a fair comparison to make? the 9/11 attackers didn't come through a porous border or through the southern border. >> it doesn't matter how they came, they got here. we know that al qaeda has resurfaced in afghanistan. the head of al qaeda was living openly in kabul and thankfully was killed by an american strike. think back 21 years ago it was afghanistan where there were the
training camps and recruitment grounds. they are out in the open in afghanistan again. i don't want to be unfair. it is not a day for politics but is a day to reflect back on the horrors we went through and to look forward and see what we have to do to make sure that never happens again. >> right. certainly nobody wants it republic peted again. how do you want people to remember today? we are in the middle of this day, it is still a day of remembrance. how do you believe americans can pay homage to the 3,000 plus who died that day? >> first, never forget that we were living in peace, that 3,000 wonderful people went to work that morning at a time of peace and by later that morning had been murdered by this horrible terrorist group. we can never forget the fact while we sometimes take our freedoms for granted, freedom of
speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, we have to be constantly vigilant in protecting our security. i don't think we should ever forget that how we came together and what we can do when we come together and we have to look to do that again. >> former new york governor, george pataki, so good to see you. thank you so much. >> nice being on with you. thank you. still to come, a wind-driven wildfire in northern california has forced thousands of people from their homes. >> distraught, scared, frightened, we don't know if we even have a home. >> all we can do is hope and pray for everybody. >> the latest on the mosquito fire next. and there she was, working at the five and dime. my dad's been wondering about his childhood addresess for 70 years... and i found it in five minutes.

because it's, again, hot andre. it is important to point out these firefighters are working around the clock trying to do everything they can, and yesterday they had a good day because we had cloud cover. the fire did not grow in size. now they were also able to do some assessments. the number of structures destroyed increased by two times. we're at 30 structures destroyed or 30 after they've done these assessments. what happens these families come back to an area that looks like what you see here behind me. it is cars that are melted. you see that melted aluminum. everything scorched. essentially what you are left with is just ashes. it's also so important to point out two people already died as a result of the flames trying to escape this fire. and yesterday a helicopter crashed. this was a small helicopter and it was on a mission essentially to help out the other
helicopters, it controls them, tells them where to drop that water or the retardant. and as it finished its mission for the day and was headed to the airport, it crashed in a residential area. we're told no one in the three people inside that helicopter were injured. one private pilot and two cal fire employees. one employee was already released from the hospital and waiting to hear on the condition of the other two people injured. as we wait for that, this is just another way of showing the public how dangerous these fires can be, not just for the residents but the firefighters experts in the air and on the ground. fred? >> indeed. very dangerous. thank you so much. we'll go live on the ground in ukraine. ukraine makes major advances. the latest straight ahead. t sto♪
