11:00 pm
>> good evening, everyone. welcome to al jazeera america. i'm john siegenthaler in new york. what we know tonight - the official report on sandy hook with images from the school and adam lanza's bedroom - what it reveals about the gunman and the massacre. >> hepless - the children in syria caught in the crossfire of a brutal civil war, a development in the bid to end the violence. caution ahead - flight cancelled, a storm front on the way. extreme whether - what it could spell for your thanksgiving dinner. >> urban jungle.
11:01 pm
going green soars to new heights. we take you inside this towering vertical garden. >> we begin with the report on sandy hook released by the conneticut state attorney. it's 48 pages long, startling in what it reveals and what it does not. officials do not know why adam lanza killed 20 children and six educators at sandy hook. it offers new details on the timeline of the shooting adam lanza's collection collection of guns, home life and relationship with his parent and outside world is covered. >> john terrett joins us with new photos from the school and adam lanza's bedroom. >> the report was released 3 o'clock eastern on the conneticut division of justice
11:02 pm
and there was no fan fare or news conference. the conclusion is that there was no motive. the lead investigator has been impossible to come up with a motive as to why adam lanza did this. the report says that adam lanza acted alone, told no one but intended to carry out the killings and kill himself. the police was on the scene 4 minutes after the 911 call and the whole thing was finished in the 11 minute time period. >> this is the house where adam lanza lived with his mother nancy, a woman that took care of his needs and providing weapons he used to kill her and 26 others. an investigative report showing the relationship with his family was strained except when it came to guns. this is an open gunlocker, it was a pastime.
11:03 pm
the 48-paged report shows the boy led an isolated life. he played games. his bedroom violents covered with liners. for threes months adam lanza insisted all conversation with his mother be by email even though they lived under the same roof. >> adam lanza had as perkinger's and mental illness. he was particular about the food heate and clothes he wore. his mother cooked his favourite food and left for new hampshire, before adam lanza went onnize murderous rampage. she was back at 10:00 pm on december 13th. next morning adam lanza killed her and shot his way into sandy hook elementary school, for
11:04 pm
reasons that may not be understood. . >> i want to show you a picture that appeared in the report. it's a still shot. we didn't think there would be new photographs. in the end i think the criminal justice division in conneticut released a handful. this is the most interesting, because that on the rite of the picture is the hard drive that adam lanza dammed before going on the shooting spree and which police are unable to get information out of. on the other is the dance pad for the dance, dance revolution game. he was an expert and had the energy. others couldn't keep going, but he good. in his bedroom there were violent videos, and things to do with comedy and the dance, dance game which is popular. >> talk about the psychology. >> more than anything he was obsessed with mass killing,
11:05 pm
that's the thing that is clear as a result of the report released. in particular column bin in 1999. beyond that he had a stash of magazine and newspaper articles. some of them dated back to the late 1800, and all of those articles dealt with killing children. the report says that the first evidence of adam adam lanza having been obsessed and interested in that level of violence was in the fifth agreed. >> john terrett, thank you very much. >> dr michael stone was a forensic psychiatrist and he joins us to talk about his new report. what is your reaction to what you read in the report so far. >> i think there was a motive. i think, really, from what i heard, that - not from the report, but elsewhere. the mother was at her wit's end finally. and was thinking seriously of having him institutionalized,
11:06 pm
which meant he was no longer going to be taken care of by his mum in their home, et cetera. at that point, he snapped and mind you, she was the first victim. he killed her with five shots from an ak-47 and went into the school. he meant to kill her, and the children that he identified as people - little children that she preferred to him at that point. >> let me explain what you are talking about. at the conclusion of the report is a quote saying: >> you are disagree with that. >> yes. >> give us your feeling about that. you thing there are specific circumstances overall.
11:07 pm
>> the killer finally swings into action, there's something that triggers this behaviour. she was speculating that - we all read about - the possibility of having him taken from conneticut to maybe a place in seattle where she would move with him, to a different school. maybe he would be better off there and she'd think about a move about the way things are unfolding in their current live, insufficient, or that was not adequate. >> what do you make of the bedroom which had the windows covered with black, the fact that she apparently doesn't go in and out of his bedroom, wasn't allowed, and the focus on material describing the death, the murder of children? >> i think the blackening of the - obscurity of the windows
11:08 pm
meant that he did not want to be seen or have contact, a severe kind of autistic continue. not every as perkinger is as sick as adam lanza. it meant that he was ill at ease with ordinary socialisation, and i think thatperger is as sick as adam lanza. it meant that he was ill at ease with ordinary socialisation, and i think that he was getting to the point he couldn't interact with his mothers. there was emails back and forth - something we learnt today also. >> what can we learn? >> one is that it's very uncommon for people with autism to be violent. the unfortunate thing when someone like the virginia tech mass murderer, the country is electrified saying, "my neighbour's kid has asperger's,
11:09 pm
will that be a stepping stone to violence." the answer is usually no. there's a small number of such persons. we shouldn't put them in the same basket. >> great to have you on the program. thank you. >> my pleasure. to the extreme weather gripping much of the nation. it's creating havoc with travel. the forecast says things will get worse. metrologist kevin has more. flooding, rain and snow. it's not over. the same storm that started on the west coast bringing flooding rains to arizona, and snow to the rockies brought 7-10 inches to parts of northern texas. more than 43 million travellers are expected to fly, many on wednesday. it's a day triple a says is expected to be the busiest day of the holiday week. >> i'm trying to go home. >> you can't get home. >> i spent all night at the
11:10 pm
airport, on this cold floor. >> for those accustomed to snow, the system is moving in earlier than expected. >> my flight was delayed. we are connecting to kansas city and getting back to texas. i wish i could click my heels and be home. it's going to get worse. >> with so many travelling the weather is expected to make getting around a nightmare. >> the flight was leaving at 10. we gave ourselves a couple of hours, three hours to get here. we drove for four hours in the traffic. >> ice is a major problem. making roads pressurerous. crews in north carolina will work through the night prepping for the storm. spraying salt and keeping them clear for tuesday morning. >> we'll look at texas specifically because what is happening there is most of the
11:11 pm
rain is leaving, but there's a lot of snow on the ground in parts of the panhandle. we mentioned that we had 7-10 inches of snow falling in the region. what happened was we had a lot of melting, but not enough that it melted everything. now the temperatures are below freezing the melted water is refreezing making it slippery across the area. this will go on for the next night or so, big problem there, no more is falling. the other big problem is what is happening across the great lakes. it's the snow and it's pushing into the great lakes and ohio. we expect to see on wednesday is rain up and down the eastern sea board. as you go inland there's a wintry mix and snow in northern
11:12 pm
hampshire. the major airports will be the rain. we expect to see major delays. >> president obama is under fire for the historic iran nuclear deal. republicans and democrats are blasting the agreement. the president is hopeful diplomacy will pay off. >> i believe in what president kennedy says. see says never negotiate out of fear and let us never fear to negotiate. this diplomacy backed by unprecedented sanctions that we brought on iran brought us the progress we achieved this weekend. >> the president is optimistic, his critics are not. >> more from mike viqueira. president obama's secretary of state john kerry and a host of officials described it as a first step towards an unemployment goal, ensuring that iran will never develop a
11:13 pm
nuclear weapon, there's sanctions in place, lasting six months. there are many in congress and elsewhere saying the deal is not enough. they don't trust iran. many are pushing for more, sanctions. they say iran will play a game. parallels will be drawn - coming to the table, getting what they want and going back to the previous behaviour. ben rhodes is the deputy national security advisor and he spoke with al jazeera's "inside story" and said new sanctions thu be but in place. >> we said the sanctions in place brought us to where we are, bringing us to the table. now is not the time to pursue new sanctions, it could derail the negotiations. >> many key members of the senate were brought in to the white house by president obama
11:14 pm
when it was clear a deal was going to be on the table with iran. bob corker, he was one of them. here was his reaction. >> you'll see an capitol hill a bipartisan effort to make sure that this is not the final agreement, because people know the d administration is strong on announcements, long on announcements but short on follow through. there's a lot of concern. >> president obama is on a west coast fund raiding trip and took time out to laud the agreement. he was criticised for the approach, dating back to his inaugural address. harry reid gave an interview to national public radio, hinting that the sanctions pushed for are not going to become immediately - they won't be on the senate floor, timing them to the six month threshold that the
11:15 pm
administration wants to give iran, demonstrating its sincerity in putting aside nuclear ambitions. >> heather, a speech writer joins us. i asked her about congress's ability to derail the nuclear agreement. >> the thing they threatened to do, passing sanction,s they won't be able to do it. they won't get votes or get it past harry reid. they can engage in rhetoric that make some in tehran saying that the u.s. won't live up to their end of the deal. they could make it possible for the administration to move forward. they have to give the deal a chance to work. >> world leaders weighed in. another voice against the plan, israel. they called it unacceptable.
11:16 pm
>> now to afghanistan where there's resistance from its president to signing a security pact with the u.s. president hamid karzai said he will not support the deal until more conditions are met. he met with national security advisor susan rice. tribal leaders support the measure which would keep some u.s. troops in afghanistan through 2024. next - under attack. the children in syria, and the bombing caught on camera. >> a rape case - charges against several others.
11:17 pm
>> tonight a possible breakthrough in the break through to end syria's civil war. peace talks will be held in geneva january 22nd - the first time rebels and the government
11:18 pm
sit at a negotiating table. questions remain over iran's participation - seen as a key player backing the government. more than 100,000 have been killed since 2011. >> according to a report out of london. thousands of those victims are children killed by bombs and shelling in their own neighbourhoods. violence for some is a way of life. stefanie dekker reports. >> it's 1 o'clock on wednesday afternoon in a district of damascus. a local activist is asking a group of children what it's like to live here. >> when we were at school piles of dead bodies were brought in every day. we used to see them prepared for burial. >> as they tell their story this happened.
11:19 pm
a shell hit the area. it's a snapshot of what it's like on the ground. while political bickering has the luxury of time, many living here do not. the united nations says almost half of syrians are dependent on foreign aid to survive. that's 9.3 million people. 6.5 million of those are eternally displaced while over 2 million fled syria, many of them live in refugee camps. 100,000 have been killed and a report by the oxford research group says 11,000 of those are children. today these children survived. al jazeera managed to track them down in the syrian capital. >> we were riding our bikes when we saw the activists. he said, "we want to film you." when they were filming the shell landed. we didn't get hurt. my mother cry the
11:20 pm
>> translation: my mother cried. >> many asked the question if political question paved the way for a safe visit by chemical weapon inspectors, why not the same for medical aid that the people of syria desperately need? >> we surgeon to syrian contributor rasha, who covered the war extensively. she's brought us stories from some of the most inaccessible and violent parts of the country. i sat with her in new york and talked about witnessing the humanitarian crisis. we use her first name and are hiding her identity. >> government-controlled damascus in the heart of capital - life has been increasingly more difficult over the months, but recently it's become even - you know, more difficult >> dangerous. >> more dangerous. >> why? >> there are a lot of mortar
11:21 pm
shells falling throughout the city near public parks and school hours, near - you know, near traffic jams, at check points. >> you see and hear them. >> you hear them. sometimes if you are unfortunate enough you see them. very often you walk one way and come back half an hour later and see a pool of blood on the sidewalk with things shattered and people around and sirens, and you ask what happened. there was a mortar shell that fell here. >> what is it like in the rebel held areas. >> it's a completely different story. first of all, there's a state of anarchy as much as the locals try to self-govern and put together a society. there is no clear authority. it's ruled by the gun, different brigades, fighting with each other. the most difficult thing about life in rebellious areas is the
11:22 pm
government siege. food and medicine are not allowed to go in. this includes insul jip for diabetics and antibiotics for inspections and small children. >> the war can be tough on the children. how are they surviving? >> it's amazing how resilient children are. in the rebellious areas i visited around damascus most schools have been shelled. children have not gone to a school building. >> people are resilient and survive. but i would suppose if you'd been covering this for a long time you begin to see people break down and decay and the system break down and decay. what do you hear from those people. >> it's amazing. the system breaks - it is breaking down and decaying.
11:23 pm
when it comes to people, i mean i've been to the rebel areas in damascus and homs. people have a strong sense of community. there's several reasons for that. a lot of them cannot venture out into government controlled areas. they are wanted by name. if not id shows them as originating from a rebellious area. they know they'll run into a lot of trouble at a government check point. they know they are better off staying where they are. once they come to this realisation they pick up arms and a lot of them think of their life as, you know, either a dead man or i need to keep fighting. >> the communities under siege outside of damascus, that suffered the chemical weapons attack. some of the teenagers i met lost everyone - mother, father, all
11:24 pm
five siblings, and it just kind of left me speechless. how do you continue and function. you are 16 years old. this kid was blanked by his cousin and his second cousins and now moved in with an aunt and uncle there's a strong sense of community, and they tell you some have been able to go into government-controlled damascus, for example, to escape the siege, to have hot water, electricity, some food and medicine for the baby. a lot of them lasted two or three weeks in the government controlled damascus before they decided to go back to the rebellious area and live under siege under these difficult circumstances. why, i ask them. they tell you, "i would rather live here in these terrible
11:25 pm
conditions, but i'm free. i feel like i'm free, i am not afraid of the checkpoint down the street. i'm not worried i'll disappear or bedetained by the government forces. this is where i'm fro." they tell you, "i would rather die here." >> how big is the humanitarian crisis? >> we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. so many families - like the woman is the head of the household. there's so many widows, shattered families. it's really very difficult to imagine how this can be overcome. >> we'll hear more from rasha tomorrow night. she'll talk about the mood on the ground and international reaction to the still war.
11:26 pm
>> well, another concussion-related lawsuit hits the sports world. michael eaves is here with the details. >> not football. 10 nhl players filed a lawsuit claiming the league concealed the risk of brain injuries faced by players, exposing them to unnecessary dangers. it seeks damages and medical monitoring. the suit comes three months after the national football league agreed to pay $765,000. >> in the nba kobe bryant sign add 2-year extension with the lakers, worth $48 million. keeping him in blue and gold for a 20th season and he'll be the highest-paid pair. he's earning $30 million. he's yet to play a game after tearing his achilles in april.
