this is al jazeera america, live from new york city. i'm tony harris with a look at today's top stories. >> there are enough republican and democratic votes in the house of representatives right now to end the shutdown. >> president obama calls for lawmakers to end the partial government shutdown >> the unsuccessful raid to capture a high-ranking commander in somalia.
4:01 pm
washington is consumed by two major fiscal debates, and today president obama called on congress to get its act together. >> congress can do what is in the best interest of the economy and the american people, and that's move beyond this manufactured crisis and work together to focus on growth, jobs, and providing the vital services that americans all across the country depend on. >> the president's remarks come as the house got back to work this morning and the senate followed suit. these congressional leaders have a lot on their plates, but very little is being done about it. mike in his remarks today the president seemed to be pushing back against those who say he is not negotiating during the stalemate. >> well, you said the house and senate are going back to work
4:02 pm
this morning. i guess that depends on how you define getting back to work. it's clear that at least publicly these two sides have hardened their positions, there is not a much of a glimmer of hope that the shutdown will end any time soon, and many people expect it to bleed into the next big fight with more dire consequences, and that is the debt ceiling expiration on october 17th. the president went about a mile to southwest to fema headquarters. he thanked the people for dealing with tropical storm karen, 86% of fema employees are furloughed and many are working without pay. he hit john boehner hard. over the weekend boehner is claim that he did not have the votes to pass the continuing
4:03 pm
resolution to keep the resolution open. the president, his spokesman, any number of democrats saying that is nonsense. >> a heard a lot of talk over the weekend that the real problem is that the president will not negotiate. well, let me tell you something, i have said from the start of the year, that i'm happy to talk to republicans about anything related to the budget. there is not a subject i am not willing to engage in, work on, negotiate, and come up with common sense compromises on. what i have said is i cannot do that under the threat that if republicans don't get 100% of their way they are going to shut down the government or default on america's debt. >> and there you heard the president saying once again a variation of what he has been saying all along. he will not negotiate with
4:04 pm
respects as long as there is this hostage situation. speaker boehner delivered a fired address saying it is the president that is not negotiating. >> the president's refusal to negotiate is hurting our economy and putting our country at risk. this morning a senior white house official saad the president would rather default than to sit down and negotiate. really? i'm going to say this again, a senior white house staffer this morning said that the president would rather default on our debt than to sit down and negotiate. now the american people expect when their leaders have differences, in a time of crisis, that we'll sit down and at least have a conversation. really, mr. president, it's time to have that conversation before our economy is put further at
4:05 pm
risk. >> and tony one thing that may be troubling to a lot of policy maker the pew organization took a poll and four in ten americans say we can go past the deadline to raise the debt ceiling, essentially go into default and there would not be a major problem with the economy, and if you poll tea party members, 64% of tea party members agree with that, and the tea party members in the house of representatives is the ones who are keeping john boehner's feet to the fire on this. >> i heard the same thing today. this idea of a clean government funding bill, is any work being done on that? >> no, again, everybody is just talking past each other, and it is all bleeding into this next
4:06 pm
big deadline, we heard many saying this not going to be a problem. the big problem is if the nation goes past that debt ceiling deadline. >> and how about back pay? guaranteeing when this ends, folks who have been furloughed will get back pay? >> that is a very interesting question. we know some 300,000 defense employees were called back to work to today by chuck hagel, the secretary of defense. the house of representatives over the weekend passed a bill that would guarantee they would get back pay. the senate have deferred that until later in the week but they are still expected to pass that. >> mike, thank you. and wall street is getting pretty nervous about the ongoing government shutdown and ongoing debate.
4:07 pm

4:09 pm
experts is destroying syria's chemical weapons stockpile, secretary of state john kerry spoke about the efforts this morning. >> i think it is extremely significant that yesterday, sunday, within a week of the resolution being passed some chemical weapons were already being destroyed. i think it's also credit to the assad regime for complying rapidly as they are supposed to. now we hope that will continue. i'm not going to vouch today for what happens months down the road, but it's a good beginning, and we should welcome a good beginning. it has been a bloody day in iraq's capital. the attacks were the late nest a surge of violence lately.
4:10 pm
more violence in egypt, as blast killed at least four people in sinai, while six egyptian soldiers were killed. we are joined now by our colleague in cairo whom we are not naming for security reasons. do we know whether today's attacks were related to the weekend clashes? >> i don't think that we can say that they are definitely related to the weekend clashes, because there has been no suggestion that the muslim brotherhood or members of the anti-coup alliance have anything to do with what happened in the two incidents where soldiers and police officers were killed in different parts of the sigh any peninsula, but it's certainly worth making the point that the situation in egypt is quite volatile.
4:11 pm
but you cannot say with any certainty that there is any deliberate relation between yesterday's events -- and there's today. >> okay. we're losing the signal a little bit. i'm going to try one question. how are things now are more protests expected? >> reporter: well, we can certainly say that the anti-coup alliance are talking about more protests this week, and the holiday is coming up here, a very important time for muslims, which is due within the next eight days. some people in the universities have talked about trying to jack -- more opposition to the government what they call a regime here, and they are planning to do something this friday. we are aware of that, but there is also a suggestion that there may be more protests coming up for this friday. >> all right. let's leave it there.
4:12 pm
our correspondent in cairo who we are naming for security reasons. according to constitutional experts these cases could have a bigger impact. >> the supreme court term will feature a series of cases that challenged previous rulings on abortion, campaign finance, and others. in the campaign finance the court could throw out precedent that has been in place for 40 years. individuals are not allowed to give a candidate more than $2,600 per election. but public integrity groups worry that the roberts court
4:13 pm
will blow out limits to individuals as well, and allow more money to flow through. on the abortion protests, the supreme court will examine buffer lines outside of clinics. the court will decide whether the buffer zones violate the first amendment freedom of action. on affirmative action, the issue which could effect the university of michigan and michigan state university is whether the state constitutional amendment violates equal protection principals. last year the supreme court upheld key parts of the law as constitutional. now the court will examine the requirement that insurance providers cover contraception.
4:14 pm
and the court will address the issue of recess appointments, what the constitution means when the president may fill up all vacancies during the recess of senate. finally, in a court divided by adeology and appointment, the swing just advertise will again be the man at the center of the screen, anthony kennedy. he gave a speech last week noting his frustration with the role the supreme court now plays. he said, quote, any society that relies on nine unelects judges to decide the most important issues of the day is not a functioning democracy. most of these rules will come at the end of the session. >> thank you, david. southeastern china is dealing

4:30 pm
welcome back to al jazeera america. here is a look at your top stories, seven days after the government partially shutdown there is still no end to the stalemate. speaking at a visit at fema in washington, president obama said there are enough republicans and democrats in the house of representatives to end the shutdown. there is outrage in libya after a map was captured outside of his home in tripoli on saturday. he believed to have been the mastermind that killed 220 people. hundreds of miles away u.s. military tried to capture an

4:33 pm
that we know that somalia is? >> that's very hard to tell. and the libya government has said that this was done without their approval, although there is some speculation that some elements of the government knew about it, and others didn't. so there is a lot we don't know as of yet. these are legally sovereign governments, but they are shown neither the capacity nor the will to track down and intercept who we and others in the region have deemed are worthy of capture and removal and trial. >> does the capture of the aledged al-qaeda leader, instead of the u.s. killing him with a drone strike, does that represent to you a changing approach to the use of drones
4:34 pm
against al-qaeda or aledged al-qaeda members by america? >> it's probably too early to tell if it's actually a trend. the drone strikes have been incredibly controversial. there's the possibility of unintended consequences and a popular backlash. various groups like al-shabab using that as kind of a recruiting tool. obviously thissing kind of strike and the one attempted in somalia are much more targeted and focused. the intelligence that is possible when you make a capture and able to take computers and files and what not is much more useful and is usually destroyed in a drone strike. so the opportunity has to be there. the intelligence has to be there, and i think this kind of capture is preferable, but i'm
4:35 pm
not sure we can say there is a trend. >> the one thing both countries have in common are pretty unstable governments. how worried are you that both of those countries will continue on the downward trajectory, and where does the effort come from to help them be safe from terrorists? >> regional partners have to be coordinating and tracking people and goods and arms that support those terror networks, and the international community which has the capabilities to support that. so it's really an international effort that needs to be made. those governments themselves are extremely weak.
4:36 pm
they don't have the government -- [ technical difficulties ] -- on their own. it needs to be a collective efforts. and the regional partners are not also in a position to do that. there is still a lot of support they need to get that job done. >> jennifer, that's a great analysis. thank you so much. >> yep. >> jennifer thank you. it was 12 years ago today that u.s. military action began in afghanistan. today afghanistan's president discussed the impending security deal with the united states. if a deal is not reached there will be no american troops in the country after 2014. jennifer glass has a look at what has changed in the country since the war began.

city, and women are not only out on the streets but in schools. english teacher went most of her high school years studying in secret. >> i remember the time of the taliban. we were at home. we did nothing. >> this student was about 6 years old when she had a run in with the taliban. she went to the local shop for canada. the taliban objected. >> they pointed their guns to me, saying what are you doing here. you are a girl. go home. under the taliban virtually no girls went to school. 40% of the student population are women. more than 40% of the afghan refugees have come home. but there is still fighting across the country most often in afghanistan's east and south.
