9:00 am
welcome to "around the world." >> leaders of the most powerful economies concluding their summit in russia. >> russian president said he and president obama did discuss syria and they did not reach an agreement. they remain locked in staunch opposition over how to handle the syrian crisis. >> all the leaders put on their smiles as they always do for the g-20 class photo. president obama scheduled to head home.
9:01 am
it's going to be wheels up on air force one. >> he's going to address the american people on tuesday about his proposal to attack syria in response to last month's chemical weapons attack. meanwhile, syria's parliament has written a letter to the houu.s. house calling for civilized dialogue. >> wrote a letter to the british parliament. there's a reported plot by iran directing militants to attack u.s. interests if there's a strike against syria. this is from the wall street journal that says u.s. intelligence and deceptive messages from the leader to militants based in iraq. >> the one thing that everyone wants to know from president obama, is he willing to go alone if congress says no on syria. that's what bwas asked during a
9:02 am
news conference. listen to how he responded. >> on the resolution to authorize the use of force. one of the big challenges right now isn't just republicans, but it's from some of your loyal democrats. it seems the more they hear from classified briefings that the less likely they are to support you. if the full congress doesn't pass this, will you go ahead with the strike? also senator susan collins, who breaks with her party to give you support she says what if we execute with this strike and he uses chemical weapons again, do we strike again? how do you answer her question? >> well, first of all, in terms of the votes and the process and congress, i knew this was going to be a heavy lift. i said that on saturday when i said we're going to take it to
9:03 am
congress. our polling operations are pretty good. i tend to have a pretty good sense of what current popular opinion is. for the american people who have been through over a decade of war now with enormous sacrifice and blood, any hint of further military entanglements in the middle east are going to be viewed with suspicion. that suspicion will probably be even stronger in my party than in the republican party. i understand skepticism. i think it is very important for us to work through systematically making the case to every senator and every member of congress. >> i want to follow up because it seems these members of congress are simply responded to their constituents and you're seeing a lot of these town mall
9:04 am
hals. the more the opposition grows and maybe it's just or more the opposition becomes vocal. why do you think you struggle with that? you keep talking about a limited mission. we have report that says you've asked for an expanded list of targets and one military official characterized it as mission creek. can you respond to that? >> that report is inaccurate. i'm not going to comment on operational issues this are sourced by some military official. one thing i've got a pretty clear idea about is what i talk with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff about and what we have consistently talked about is something limited and proportional that would degrade
9:05 am
mr. assad's capabilities. in terms of opposition, chuck, i expected this. this is hard. >> i still haven't heard a direct response to the question. if congress fails to authorize this, will you go forward with an attack on syria? >> you're not getting a direct response. she asked the question very well. >> it's a pretty basic question. >> am i going to give you a different answer, no. what i've said, and i will repeat, is that i put this before congress for a reason. i think we will be more effective and stronger if congress authorizes this action. >> briana is joining us from
9:06 am
russia. you know you're on point when you have the whole press corps following you up, asking, trying to get an answer on that question whether or not he will go it alone. what do you make of the fact he just did not answer? he did not pursue that. >> reporter: i get the sense he's leaving his options open. i think the white house is banking they will get some congressional support. the senate is seen as an easier go. the house more difficult and not because of the opposition party but because there's bipartisan opposition to what the president wants to do here and it's because members of congress are hearing from their constituents. the most recent nbc news poll says 50% of americans don't want their to be any u.s. military action in syria. only 42% support it. then when you ask them what about military action without congressional approval, four out of five of those surveyed say no, that's not how we want it to
9:07 am
go. that's why i think the president made a strong case for this strike, he doesn't want to say he's going to go ahead with it if congress says no. he was sort of signaling, not totally clear, that's not what he wanted to do. he said this wasn't a symbolic practice where he put this before congress. he talked to observers and they think if president obama gets both chambers saying no that he may not go ahead with the strike. this will be devastating to his presidency but there's the open question. if just the senate says okay will the president go ahead with that and that's where he's not committing. >> i'm curious about the dynamic between he and vladmir putin. mr. obama had hope to go there and do some convincing. it sounds like there was a lot less dialogue and a lot more just restating already firmed positions.
9:08 am
>> reporter: that's right. i think that president obama really had high hopes that he was going to make any progress with putin. a couple of days ago when he was in sweden he said that u.s. relations, u.s. and russian relations hit wall. he said he always remains positive but privately white house officials felt they are barking up the wrong tree or it was pointless to go forward with this. you really got the sense from putin and president obama that even their 20-minute discussion today where they were stating their positions, disagreeing that what they were talking about privately was basically what we were hearing them talk about publicly. >> indeed. good to see you. something else to add on the question of whether president obama does plan to go it alone if congress says no to strikes on syria. the president's deputy national security advisor was
9:09 am
interviewed. his response was rather telling. >> he says the president does not intend to go forward with strikes without approval from congress. i want you to listen to this for yourself. the portion of this interview that has a lot of people asking some questions about the president's intentions. >> after the events of august 21st, we reached out to congress and had conversations and the one thing we heard is they wanted their voice heard. the president had the authority to act but it's neither his desire nor intense to use that authority without congress backing him. >> there's been numerous e-mails going out clarifications of the point of view there. they do not want to get ahead of the president but they are calculating whether or not he gets one or both chambers if he decides it's going to go to strike. >> if he does get a no vote and
9:10 am
does go on strike, what is the point of going to congress to begin with? he'll be jumping right back into that heated debate trying to convince members of congress to support the plan for what he's describing as limited, targeted military against. the president said assad crossed the red line by using chemical weapons on his own people. right now there's a lot of lawmakers not so sure the military strike is the correct response. i want to bring in dana bash to talk about this. we know that about 25% of congress opposed to military action in syria. a lot of lawmakers still undecided. what do they need to hear? what are they hearing from c constituen constituen constituents? >> reporter: what they are hearing is overwhelming opposition. these are democrats. these are republicans.
9:11 am
even diane fienstein saying she's also getting calls. she's saying they don't know what i know. she is somebody that has a lot of insight. when you're talk about the broader congress, what they have been doing every single day, including today going in as much as they can, getting classified briefings and getting information about whether or not assad used chemical weapons, but more importantly it's trying to get a better handle on what the military action would be and what the con ttingencies would .
9:12 am
they really are going in expecting to hear some specifics and not really getting them. again, the key, key concern among so many lawmakers are is inability for anybody to really know ha kind of pandora's box this could open if the u.s. does strike. >> one question here the president was asked is whether or not he could consider a proposal that some are floating in congress to ask syria to wait. wait for 45 days, sign a chemical weapons treaty and say they will get rid of those weapons. is that something he's considering, a 45-day delay? >> reporter: this is a new idea that's popped up. it's coming from two of the president's fellow democrats.
9:13 am
one of whom has said he's a know. what they are proposing is this 45-day delay to give assad the ability to or the opportunity to sign the chemical weapons treaty. it's not likely to happen but the goal is for the president the use this time to buy time and buy support from the international community that he doesn't have. the question is whether or not, also, if the president feels he won't have the votes in the senate or the house, that he could use that as a fall back measure or fall back method to go forward. >> we'll all be working over the weekend. the president cancelling his trip to california because he's be lobbying those members of congress. we'll be talking throughout the weekend. thank you. let's have a look now at how the vote is breaking down so far. there's a couple of remarkable
9:14 am
aspects to this. in the house 15 democrats, 8 republicans are backing the president. 23 democrats and 92 republicans are against him. 295 lawmakers either undecided or their feelings are unknown at the moment. that's a huge number. let's have a look at the senate. 17 democrats and 7 republicans support a strike against syria. five democrats, 14 republicans do not. 57 senators, more than half, still undecided or unknown. you can see the details right at cnn.com. pop over there if you want to keep an eye. here is also what we're working on. john kerry says syria's leader is a thug and a murder. his father may have been worse.
9:15 am

against any americans involved or not. i want to go live to the pentagon. chris, tell us why is it. what is the evidence behind the concern that american interest could be at risk in iraq? >> reporter: the wall street journal is reporting the u.s. intercepted communication iran ordering militants in iraq to go after and attack americans and in embassy in baghdad. this is if the u.s. were to conduct a strike. i've been to that embassy in background when it's being shelled shel shelled by mortars. it's like a fortress. they are concerned it would cause them to retaliate against americans in the region.

bashar al-assad was raised to create a dynasty. those who know him say it was his father who set him on the path to dictatorship when he was just a young boy. >> we're tracing the roots of the syrian leader. >> reporter: recognize the boy on the swing? it's bashar assad. he likely wouldn't have imagined it taking the turn it has. >> is this a dynasty and is it crumbling now? >> it's a mafia dynasty an it's
9:25 am
definitely crumbling. >> reporter: to understand what's happening in syria now, it helps to know about the strange regime built by his fath father. >> he was the most cut throat, cunning leader in a region full of brutal dictators. >> reporter: he rose through the ranks of the syrian air force but it was hardly lly that straightforward. he thrived in the back rooms of syrian intrigue. he betrayed friends, killing and vanishing enemies put you on the fast track. there were more than 20 unsuccessful coups when he took power. he was involved in three of them through the 70s, 80s and 90s. he played the middle east power game like a fiddle negotiating peace with israel while keeping

america from being a full fle e fledged enemy. he made friends with terrorist groups like hezbollah. in 1990 and '91 when george bush needed to build a coalition, look who was on his side. the u.s. still considers syria a haven for terrorists. >> reporter: how did it crumble. it was because they ruled to brutal by as a minority. bashar has had other difficulties changing the old ways of his father. >> he stabilized syria through a closed system. people couldn't travel. when bashar came to power he lifted the restrictions on travel and allowed people to read international newspapers, satellite, television and the internet.

9:45 am
who meets with them. president says that fellow g-20 leaders all agree that something has to be done about syria and what he is pressing for is military strikes but there's a spectrum of possible international action. >> there is. bombs and missiles just one end of that but here are some alternatives. the international community could choose to arm off the rebel forces fighting syrian troops. >> united nations could squeeze syria harder with tougher economic sanctions or get involved in more humanitarian ways. senators are talking about giving the assad government 45 days to sign a chemical weapons ban or face military action. >> interesting option. there's also the yidea of tryin
9:46 am
to break up the army from the inside. the country also, some analysts are saying doing nothing about syria is better than making a big military mistake. former u.s. secretary joining us now. when you ran the pentagon there were times you had to get directdirect ly involved in internal conflicts. how does that decision making process unfold? what are you up against? >> it's always difficult. it's the last decision that any president wants to make. it's the last thing you understand. even something called a surgical strike. it sounds very anti-septic, it's
9:47 am
not. you will kill combatants and innocent civilians as well. it's not easily reached. in this particular case the president has felt compelled by virtue of the fact he drew a red line which he claims now is an international red line against using chemical weapons. havi assad having crossed that line some reaction has to be taken. the question is what military action is the president planning. you talk about a limited strike, what does that accomplish? you have people like senator john mccain and lindsey graham saying that's not enough. you need to help the rebels in a much more robust way. then you will alter the balance of power on the ground. if that takes place you have chance of bringing assad to the bargaining table. that's the rational behind it. the president has made two different arguments. on the one hand those reluctant to go to war as such, it is an act of war, he's saying it's limited. to people like john mccain and
9:48 am
lindsey graham he's saying we'll do much more. we have to be clear. is it much more or much less. you can't have it both ways. >> we were watching the g-20 summit and we saw the president as well as putin come out. they met for 20 minutes or so and both acknowledged they don't agree over whether or not the u.s. should strike. he did say the foreign ministers, the lead in the future looking at what the president accomplished overseas, do you think there's an alliance he's built that's adequate enough when it comes to canada and france among others that would make this a successful military mission or are we really doing this on our own? >> first, i would hope the president an president putin could have met longer than 20 minutes. you're talking about the two w
9:49 am
powers on this mission. i would hope they spent more time together. i would hope also that president obama will go to the security council and lay out the overwhelming evidence he claims we have and demonstrate, here is the evidence. action must be taken. if russia disregards irrefutable evidence, it's futile to go to the u.n. for any security action in the future and encouraging the breakdown of the international rule of law and encouraging u.s. and other countries to take measures on their own. that's not a healthy thing to be doing. if russia and china insist that nothing should be done, then i think we're headed in that direction. >> you nus make tjust make the
