6:00 am
i learned something from the children every day. to be happy even under very complex circumstances. >> wow. it is all about making a difference. who do you know that's making a big difference in your world? tell us about them. head to our blog at and nominate them to be a hero. >> the news continues with "cnn newsroom" and kyra phillips. good morning. i'm kyra phillips. a new day for newt gingrich. we will get new insights into sarah palin's term as alaska's governor. 24,000 pages of internal e-mails about to be released. bean sprouts, grown in germany, now confirmed as the cause of the worst e. coli outbreak in european history. at least 23 people dead.
6:01 am
month are than 2300 sickened. we begin this morning with the secretary of defense calling out nato and questioning its combat capability in libya. war planes repeatedly bombed moammar gadhafi's tripoli compound reducing it to rubble. the dictator still reigns. secretary gates, not impressed. here is what he said earlier this morning. the highest military alliance. the mightiest military alliance in history is only 11 weeks into an operation against a poorly armed regime in a sparsely populated country. they are requiring the u.s. to make up the difference. nic robertson who has been following the war closely joins us live. nic, is nato not striking hard enough? is that what gates is saying?
6:02 am
>> he seems to be implying it is taking a long time to take on moammar gadhafi. moammar gadhafi is really seen by everyone as the essence or the focal point of winning the fight in libya at the moment. he has to be killed or removed before the rebel forces can move into tripoli and a new government can be sustained. the frustration here in nato and what we are hearing from secretary gates is not just that nato countries don't have enough ammunition to keep up the fight, perhaps but the region's goal is proving elusive. a lot of people were worried about this, going after essentially what is one man and his will to fight moammar gadhafi is tough. none of the beating that his army has received at the hands of nato has made him back down. just this week, he has said, he will fight to the en. his compound, his palace is in ruins. that is a growing frustration here. we are not able to, the
6:03 am
international community is not able to deliver a final blow to moammar gadhafi. >> nic robertson, thanks so much. stay with us. in just about ten minutes from now, we are going to hear from a former nato supremeal pli allie commander. several top advisers are ditching newt gingrich's presidential campaign. this so-called is prompting speculation about another republican entering the race. cnn's deputy political director, paul steinhauser with the story from manchester new hampshire where he is preparing for our gop debate. what do you think about the impact on gingrich's staff? >> reporter: wow, kyra. that's all i can say. a lot has happened since you and i spoke just 24 hours ago. you are serious. this is a big deal. we are talking about all of the top advisers and aides to his campaign staff. they all jumped ship.
6:04 am
a lot of key people in some of the early states, iowa and south carolina. they are saying they had a very big difference of opinion with the former house speaker over how he wanted to run the campaign, over how the fundraising was going, how involved gingrich was going to get in making calls to fund-raisers. he only announced a month ago. there was that huge controversy off the bat when he ditched budget chairman paul ryan's house republican budget. then, he basically disappeared from the campaign trail after may 27th. we found out later he was on vacation with his wife. now, he is back. everybody is jumping ship it seems from the campaign. gingrich, kyra, says he is going to march on. he put out a response on his facebook page saying that the campaign will continue. he says he will be at a speech in los angeles, which is scheduled for sunday, on foreign policy. he is going to be right here on monday for our big debate, kyra. >> sounds good. real quickly, mitt romney, what's up? is he dissing iowa? >> reporter: that's the thing
6:05 am
that's really interesting. romney putting out a statement yesterday saying he will not be partaking in the straw poll in iowa. this was a big deal for him last time around. he spent a lot of money. he came in first but was overshadowed by mike huckabee. we remember he did not do well in the iowa caucuses. his strategy is to concentrate more on new hampshire. >> paul steinhauser, good to see you. join us as republican hopefuls face off. the presidential debate 8:00 eastern on cnn. today is the day we could learn a lot more about governor sarah palin. the state of alaska is about to release 24,000 paenlges of e-ma from her days in office. they were sent from december of 2008 through september of 2008 when john mccain put her on the ticket. they cover state business on her official e-mail account as well as her private accounts. drew griffin in alaska waiting to eyeball them.
6:06 am
palin has said she us not worried about what the media will find. anthony weiner, still a congressman this rng month. the calls for his resignation are getting louder. dick durbin said, don't murder someone who is already committing suicide. weiner has said he won't resign. check out a new poll. just over half want him to stay in congress. about the same percentage don't want him to run for mayor in 2013. homeowners brace yourself for this punch to the gut. home prices will likely keep sliding and, get this, could plunge another 25%. alison kosik, the new york stock exchange. hi, allison. >> hi, kyra. this extremely do you dire warn. this 25% drop in home prices that you mentioned, it is huge.
6:07 am
how huge? take a look. the median home price is sitting at about $163,000. a 25% drop would be $41,000 less. that takes the $163,000 home down to 12 $2,000. if you are a homeowner, what does that mean. you may feel stuck. you can't cell. it could lead to more under water homeowners who end up owing more on the home than it is worth. that could lead to more foreclosures and keep bringing down the home prices more. keep in mind, shiler does say this isn't an actual forecast. it is just an observation of what he is seeing right now. >> we talked about a double dip recession. was it yesterday or the day before? what do you think? does this forecast kind of revive those fears? >> it revives the fierce of a double-dip recession in housing. here is why. take a look. housing prices actually wound up weeki peeking around 2005, 2006.
6:08 am
then, they tumbled and there was an uptick and now the prices are falling more. what this is, what you are seeing is a classic double dip. everyone wants to know, why is the housing market not budging. people aren't buying. credit is tight. too many foreclosures out there. this big glut of empty homes on the market. the job market isn't moving quickly in the right direction. the fate of housing depends on the job market. you can't buy a house if you don't have a job. that's what it comes down to. >> that's true. a tough time. allison, thanks so much. >> let's shift gears a little by. shall with he do a little royal watching. will and kate mark a new first and for prince philip, the magic number is 90. let's check in with max foster in london for some international headlines. he knows. these are the two talked-about stories today. >> reporter: absolutely. a very glamourous night.
6:09 am
the first official outing on a official event. the dutchess got married, now a working royal. it was a fund-raiser. the guests paid thousands of pounds to be in the same room as the royal couple. people gathering around them trying to get a shot. very successful evening. in total, they raised $30 million for children's charities. very successful first outing for kate and william as a married couple. meanwhile, william's grandfather is winding things down, he is saying. prince philip, he is 90 today. talk about winding down his public events and some people will be quite pleased about that. he is quite famous for his gasp in front of the camera. he suggested at a factory that an old-fashioned fuse box must be put in by an indian and asked ann arbor ridge nal leader in
6:10 am
2002 in australia whether he still threw spears. the papers are picking up on his gafs. the duke, himself, does not see the need to apologize or explain or emotor. it is generally not what people of his generation do. resilience and retty sense was sense he learned earlier. in an age when everyone is a victim when the slight test off-collar remarks seem to require elaborate overthe top apology having a proud all-purpose offender at the top of the royal food chain is refreshing and inspiring. it is almost as if we expect it. so it is not offensive when he says it. >> i have to laugh, because the queen is so demure. she is very sophisticated. could you just imagine being a part of sitting with those two and having tea and seeing what really happens behind closed
6:11 am
doors. >> it must be excruciating. >> he keeps smiling. max, thanks a lot. with weeks until retirement, defense secretary, robert gates, clearly feels free to speak his mind. his farewell speech to nato, well, more like a smackdown. man 1: send, that is the weekend. app grapgic: yeah dawg! man 2: allow me to crack...the bubbly! man 1: don't mind if i doozy. man 3: is a gentleman with a brostache invited over to this party? man 1: only if he's ready to rock! ♪ sfx: guitar and trumpet jam vo: geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance.

6:13 am
defense secretary, robert gates, is ready to retire. he is not going quietly. after meeting with american troops in afghanistan, he then
6:14 am
moved on to nato headquarters in belgium, yes, to say good-bye and, one more thing. get with it. our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr, joining us. talk about a final slam against the alliance. >> well, yeah, you could say that, keir yra. bob gates is on that farewell tour scheduled to leave office at the end of this month. he is getting more and more candid as that deadline gets closer. he was speaking in brussels talking about a long-standing issue that rubs the u.s. the wrong way, which is how much the u.s. is contributing to nato versus hoch oth versus how much other countries are contributing to nato. let me quote from him directly. he says, quote, in the past i have worried openly about nato turning into a two-tiered alliance.
6:15 am
what's the secretary really talking about here? look, nato and the u.s. have bickered for the last 20 years about who is doing enough. but right now, it couldn't be more sensitive, because when leon panetta walks into the pentagon to be the next secretary of defense, the day after gates leaves, he still needs nato. he needs the nato commitment in afghanistan. he needs the nato commitment for the operation in libya. so it may be a candid bob gates but candid at a very awkward time. kyra? >> no doubt. barbara starr at the pentagon, barbara, thanks. >> i guess we could only imagine how gates speech went over with the nato council. we have a former commander to tell us what he thinks. so, general, you know, gates is
6:16 am
being pretty direct here. he is basically saying, hey, nato, you are not pulling your weight. is that fair? >> it is fair. i think it has been going on ever since the fall of the berlin wall. i think what has to happen is nato is not a club. it is a military alliance. it has commitments. it has obligations. what you have to do is match those requirements or missions with resources. nato has not been doing that. libya is a good case. >> so let me ask you this. i'll just be blunt. is the mission here to sort of destabilize gadhafi and his forces or is the mission here to kill him, to take him out? >> i think you have to be very clear and clarity of mission is extremely important. i think secretary gates and others will agree, it is what is in u.n. resolution 1973, which is take all necessary measures to protect civilians. now, what they are doing here is
6:17 am
having an air campaign against all the related targets that are shelling the safe areas of libya where the rebels are. they are running out of ammunition. they don't have enough smart ammunition of auour allies. this is a concern. they haven't been able to spend the money to ramp up for this extended air operation. it is no the just regime change. it is trying to protect civilians. >> gotcha. you want to protect civilians. you don't want to take out innocent people's lives. i guess that leads me to my next question. is gadhafi and his posse, shall we say, that smart to know how to put him in certain places where a lot of civilians would be killed, even if forces had intelligence of where he was? you think about sadam hussein. he had all these doubles. he had an entourage that knew how to move him around.
6:18 am
is that the situation with gadhafi here? >> he is probably moving in several different places. again, you have an alliance of 28 nations which the united states is the leader. i think you have to be very careful not to do the indiscriminate bombing that would cause all kinds of collateral damage and kill a lot of civilians. that is not the intent here. you have to be smart about it in how to go about putting pressure. i think looking at the strikes that have been going on reisn'tly, they are attributing not just artillery piece but his command and control and gas and ammunition dumps, all of that will take a toll. nato has suspended the mission for 90 days. >> that's what we will do. you and i will be talking. general, always good to see you. thanks so much. >> thank you. . >> in pakistan, a 17-year-old man begs for his life while a gun is pointed at his neck. he is shot anyway and killed.
6:19 am

the killing of a 17-year-old unarmed man sparks outrage in pakistan. paramilitary soldiers caught on tape harassing and shooting him as he begs for his life. max foster has more on this from london. i know that the videos just coming in. we are all taking a look at it, trying to get it translated.

we want to know what is it he is saying, what is it the soldiers are saying to add more context to what happened here. to jupd stunderstand, you need h it in raw form. you can understand once you have seen it how the pakistanis are hearing. you have a teenager surrounded by pakistani rangers. let's see what happened. the pictures speak for themselves. the rangers are saying he was accused of carrying a gun and robbing people beforehand. clearly, he didn't have a gun there. the president and the prime

minister promising an investigation. this does show what many people think of as a trigger happy rangers. police just by passing the judicial system and it is causing outrage, of course rs in pakistan. >> you say there is an investigation going on. have we heard from the family? has the family said anything about this shooting? >> we had some pretty appalling video coming in from the family. we saw his sister just breaking down and screaming. she is furious. she is angry. she doesn't understand what happened. people just want the police to understand that it is not their role to execute people. it's their job o to send them to the courts. >> max foster, live from london, thanks. back here in the u.s., we are checking stories across country. alabama's governor signs in a legal immigration bill said to be tougher than arizona's. it allows police to check the immigration status for anyone stopped for another reason. critics promise a court challenge and sfoerters say the law will survive. >> we want anybody that wants to make their home here to be able

to do that. we want every one of them to do it the right way, through legalized immigration, through processed employment. we don't think that is asking too much. >> firefighters battling the wildfires in eastern arizona. they are making inroads now. the fire is now 5% contained. thousands of people have been evacuated. that has charred at least 525 squ square miles. a homecoming for more than 270 marines stationed at camp pendleton who helped deliver aid to japanese disaster victims. thousands of people running out as the troops and tanks roll in in syria. call it tough love. parents can keep their adult kids on their health insurance until the age of 26. many parents are saying, no way. ♪ i saw what my life could be...

wrapped around the remains of her face. that's a moment for the prosecutor, the jury, the defense attorney. i've seen this kind of reaction in defendants before, when they realize, oh, wow, there's a significant amount of evidence that the prosecution is presenting against me. it's hard to tell what she's reacting to. certainly there are those saying they feel sorry for casey anthony, not p caylee, i will say this. often times, defense attorneys have shown their client evidence that the prosecution intends to so. so it seems odd to me that she never would have seen these pictures of caylee's remains. but it possible. it's hard to tell, statistically a lot of juries polled after guilty verdict, when they see this kind of emotion, they think

7:35 am
what it will cost to send him to college. and it's frightening. >> let's see how your knowledge is with this. let me ask you this. what do you think is the bigger expense? what's the biggest expense, health care, child care or housing? >> going through what i'm going through now, i would say child care. >> i'm with you on that. i agree. but the usda said housing. i'm with you on the child care. we need a roof over our head. usda said housing is 31% of the overall cost that we paid for our kid, followed by child care then food. i got some good new for you, since you have twins, your expenses will drop as you have more kids. see, you can have a third. what happens they wind up sharing bedroom, hand-me-downs, discounts at private schools. it gets better. >> they are saring everything, including the crib right now. i'm in support of that. >> all right. look at stocks.

he's been for years to add a best stunts category. why do they keep rejecting you? >> i have no idea. for 20 years, i think this is going to be the one. for every year, we keep getting folked down. like i said, i am baffled at this point. >> they are going meet again this week which is why we're talking. do you think this is your year? do you think they've got any glimmer of hope here? >> i think we do. we have don hudson taking the reigns from bruce davis. bruce has been fighting our cause for 20 years. i hope both of them can convince the 43 board members that we really belong in the oscar ceremony. >> to prove why you should belong. believe me, we're fighting for your cause. i want to roll a clip. we picked this from the rock, in 1986. wasn't to point out that as we

look at this clip, that it wasn't nic cage gunning that yellow ferrari, it was actually you. >> still there, jack? >> yep. and it's -- >> no. >> i want you to take us through the clip here. it wasn't nic cage, which, of course, the movie makes it look like it is, it was you in that car. tell us about that stunt. what it took to pull that off, what it felt like and, by the way, did you break any bones? >> that one, i didn't break bones, we are involved way before the filming takes the process, because we have to design the entire sequence and make sure everybody is safe in something like that. even the stunt people. you know you have to keep the crew safe, but you also have to keep the stunt people and the people around the filming process safe as well. when you go into to double an actor, you have to adapt his
