tv Early Start CNN September 2, 2013 2:00am-3:01am PDT
safe. we're going to go home now. the stunning decision and now the furious sales pitch. new developments as the president tries to convince congress to strike syria for allegedly poisoning their own people. sentence outrage. the teacher given 30 days behind bars for raping his student. now, the shocking sentence may be reversed. >> luck on the side of this driver. nearly crushed by a massive boulder. oh! look at that. that was a landslide there.
he is an incredibly lucky driver. >> that is incredible. >> good morning to you. welcome to "early start." i'm zoraida sambolin. >> i'm john berman. it is monday, september 2nd, happy labor day. 5:00 a.m. in the east. >> we are going to begin with the president's announcement. he will let congress decide if the u.s. should strike syria in what was a chemical assault on syrian people. there's a sales pitch to convince lawmakers a military response is the right thing to do. >> reporter: secret briefings on capitol hill. the white house making its case to skeptical lawmakers on cnn secretary of state john kerry revealing new evidence to back claims it assad regime killed hundreds with nerve gas. >> blood and hair samples that have come to us has tested
positive for signatures of cerin. >> reporter: after the decision to put a strike on hold saying congress should approve. >> all of us should be accountable as we move forward. >> reporter: aids insist he was thinking of reversing course before the british parliament embarrassed cameron on friday. he sent kerry out for action. >> what is the risk of doing nothing? >> reporter: later, he signals second thoughts. >> nobody is more war ware ray than me. >> reporter: he didn't tell anybody until 6:00 a.m. when he takes a walk with the chief of staff. at 7:00, he tells the national security staff sparking a debate. saturday morning, calls the top team to the "situation room." phones congressional leaders to
get them on board, then heads to the rose garden to stun the world. >> i will seek authorization for the use of force from the american people's representatives in congress. >> reporter: cn nrngs, washington. >> several members of congress remain skeptical about the president's proposal saying it gives the military too much power. they want to see changes before they authorize votes. >> the president's decision wasn't a surprise just here. some saying it's not what they wanted. the arab league and the saudis are urging international action. that is an important development. arwa damon is in beirut this morning. we'll get to the arab league in a moment. give me a sense of what's being said inside syria this morning. >> reporter: well, there's a lot of frustration, naturally, as there has been along u.s. policy
when it comes to handling the situation in syria. ift's taking people by surprise on the one hand, but at the same time, not entirely shocking them. the u.s. has never really been our ally in all this, simply because of the fact up until now, there's been no concrete action when it comes to any of washington's decisions. people inside syria, on the one hand, do want to see those in opposition, do want to see some sort of military action. at the same time, they are saying the proposed strikes put forward by the u.s. is not enough. they want to see game changing action. regime changing action and, of course, that's not what's on the table. many people are saying if all the u.s. has to offer is these pinpoint specific strikes, that, potentially is going to harm the rebels and the opposition and the people more than it is going to harm the regime.
john? >> you are harsh language from the syrian regime calling the president weak and a retreat. i want to talk about the arab league. they put out an interesting statement calling for some type of international action, but they had specific language. >> reporter: yeah, they most certainly did. they are saying they blame the regime. at the end of the day, the regime is responsible for security. they want to see international action along the lines of an investigation and court. they are not specifically calling for military action. this is a very important distinction to make, especially if you remember the rhetoric when the same debate was going on about libya and the league came out and supporting military action. that key ally, the arab league and nation, not necessarily someone or an entity the u.s. can turn to to rely on and is going to support strikes.
it's a complicated situation here. everybody who is watching is anxious. what is happening in syria is not confined to that nation alone and impacting syria's neighbors and could impact the entire region. people are worried about what is going to happen. >> no overstatement to say the whole world is watching what happens in the united states and congress. arwa damon in beirut. thank you so much. we are following a developing story along the afghan border as well. taliban claiming responsibility for attacking a nato base, setting off explosives and setting fire. several of them caught fire. none of the members were killed. an afghan official says all the attackers are dead. terror connections. a classified government document obtained by "the washington

square miles, some 5,000 firefighters are battling the blaze that has destroyed 11 homes, caused five injuries. this is the fourth largest fire in modern california history. >> wow. indra petersons is tracking the forecast. are fire crews getting help from the weather? >> a little bit. moisture is the biggest thing. they want the humidity levels up. this is the one thing we are watching. this is water vapor satellite. you can it in a dome of high pressure. the moisture is slowly getting into the area. it bring as chance for thunderstorms. this is yesterday's satellite. these are thunderstorm that is have been popping up in the area the last several days. today, we have the threat in the forecast for showers. winds, keep in mind, could gust stronger when you have thunderstorms in the city. there's the threat for dry lightning as well. a mixed bag. temperatures warming up and drying out if you want to look ahead into the forecast. >> one of the things we have

assad regime used chemical weapons on its own people. members of congress are saying they want to change the language of the president's resolution. they think the president is asking for too much authority. secretary of state, john kerry took to the sunday talk shows saying the samples from damascus showed signs the gas was used. today, president obama will meet with senator john mccain who has been an outspoken advocate for striking syria. a hearing on whether to authorize the military strike. among u.s. allies, the reactions have been mixed, so far. it's not clear if they might join in if congress gives to okay to go after the assad regime. we are hearing reports france, france now, plans to present evidence of this attack to its
lawmakers today. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: france has always been a strong ally of the u.s. and would support any military action. like the united states, france's president doesn't exactly need his parliament's approval to take military action but there will be a debate on wednesday. before that debate, we understand from the press, the news agency in france, some lawmakers will be given classified evidence before the debate for them to evaluate. it seems to be part of that push to convince, not just congress, but really, the international public, lawmakers of the case for military action in syria. now, across europe, it's a much more mixed view. in britain, there was the vote denying any -- rejecting military action by britain. there are suggestions there could be a second vote here if new evidence comes to light. it could be brought up before
parliament, again. >> there's the news of the arab league making a statement in support of international response, but not an explicit call for military action. how might that affect things? >> reporter: yeah, it was an interesting statement. it didn't say, you know, take military action only if approved by the u.n. or security council. it asked for a strong response, but stopped short of supporting western military action. it seems to be a good sign for the obama administration, certainly president obama can say we have regional support from saud di- arabia, a big supporter of the syrian opposition. it does seem that this sort of support is coming in, but everybody is holding back from supporting full military action at this point even though everyone agrees there's some strong action that needs to be taken. >> so many different parts of

[ male announcer ] this is jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke.
for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising,
or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.
