that does it for this edition of "360." ♪ the president said he knew it would be a heavy lift, and after the g-20 summit it may have just gotten heavier. as a congressional vote looms on whether to strike syria, the white house goes into full court press to win support at home and abroad. i've always used my plat tomorrow to provoke dialogue on important issues. >> kenneth cole may not be provocative but this time the shoe mogulle may have really stepped into it.
what he said about syria that sent the twitter-verse reeling. have be the hiv virus you that i want everybody to practice safe sex. >> remember that iconic interview, that saxophone solo from bill clinton. 20 years ago, arsenio hall broke boundaries in late night. well, now he is back and not everyone's going to like it. talk about a good tease. not everybody's going to like it. >> we'll have to see. i liked him back in the day. >> i did, too. >> good morning, everyone, i'm suzanne malveaux. >> i'm victor blackwell. this is "new day saturday." >> first, hard sale on syria. the house returns from summer vasion on monday. they're going to plunge head first on a possible military strike on syria. >> tuesday, president obama takes his case for a strike directly to the american people in a prime time address.
cnn's brian todd reports it's been really a dizzying weeks the president skrachls for support. >> the united states should take military action against syrian regime targets. >> reporter: but not right away. the president would first ask congress. the next day, sunday, the administration begins to make its case that syria's regime wants a poison gas attack killing victims and wants america to respond. on monday, the president making a plea to senator mccain. >> we have to bring bashar al assad down. >> reporter: then on tuesday, the president presses top lawmakers to endorse a strike. house leaders say yes. >> we're not going to tolerate this kind of behavior. >> he crossed the lines by using chemical weapons. >> reporter: but when the administration faced a senate panel there's a mixture of support and skepticism.
>> i don't know if we can say by attacking them he's not going to launch another chemical attack. >> reporter: by wednesday, a first test vote on the senate panel. ten senators support a strike, 7 oppose it. a house team faces another day of questioning by lawmakers. >> people shouldn't be allowed to gas their citizens with impunity. >> there should absolutely be no american boots on the ground in syria. >> reporter: the pled heads overseas taking his case abroad. >> i didn't set a red line. america said a red line. >> reporter: the uk, china and russia opposed military intervention. back home, polls are now showing initial public opinion leaning against a military strike. and is some lawmaker, getting an earful. >> why are you not listening to the people an staying out of syria? it's not our fight. >> we somewhere to stop assad on any price. >> reporter: on friday, after the summit, the president said
he's ready to strike syria with or without an international consensus. >> 1400 people were gassed. if we're not acting, what does that say? >> reporter: but he declines to say what he will do if congress voted no. >> i think the week started off very well with support of the house leadership, john mccain, lindsey graham. but as it's gone on it has the challenges that it faces. >> brian todd subpoena early on this saturday morning. brian, i understand the president has a lost arm-twisting to get congress on board in the week ahead? >> that's right, suzanne and victor. he's lobbying members and the security team will be doing it on monday. they'll have briefings on monday. at least votes in the senate could come next week. to underscore the challenges that he faces. we'll first give you the numbers in the senate. those are positive for the president. right now, he's got 25 yes votes
authorizing the use of action against syria. 19 no votes. but there are 56 undecided votes in the u.s. senate so real lobbying still going on there. but the real uphill battle is in the house where it's just lean very, very heavily against authorizing the use of force. here are the numbers, 24 yes votes in the house. 119 no votes in the house. 270 undecided and there are 20 what they call unknown votes. presumably, those are votes where members have made up their minds but they're just not revealing what they're going to vote. there you have it. the consensus even the democratic caucus led by nancy pelosi and steny hoyer, they're going to have a tough time convincing even their members to vote on this resolution. brian todd, thank you. and president obama has a difficult job convincing even u.s. allies on its quest for a strike on syria. right now, france is the only country on board.
there are possible categories as well, japan, turkey, saudi arabia, israel, united emirates as well. five of those tallied oppose the idea, that would be russia, china, germany, the european union and nato. while the white house looks for allies it's also looking out for americans in syria. >> yesterday, the state department ordered the evacation of nonmilitary personnel in lebanon and parts of turkey. nic robertson is joining us on the phone. nic, tell us what this means. is there a real threat for americans overseas in that region, or is it just a precaution? >> reporter: an abundance of caution is how it's being termed. there was a small demonstration outside the embassy here yesterday, perhaps 100 or so people. and it wasn't significant in terms of numbers or violence. but it is indicated as a decision is awaited when there will be a strike in syria, the mood on the streets here, if you will, essentially a lot of
people opposed to strikes for different reasons, because they support assad and they worry about the implications of the strikes. and a hard core of them may turn aggressive against american citizens, against western interests. the british removing families from here, only leaving essential staff. and the embassy, quote, it is perceived that there is a potential threat here should strikes go ahead. and anger particularly from pro-assad elements, and there are many of those here in lebanon could turn against american citizens, russian interests here. suzanne. >> nic, we know the u.s. has tight security around the embassy. i imagine they're really stepping that up as well? >> there is tight security around the embassy, the specifics, honestly, we're not told about. we also know that the lebanese security forces they've increased that around the western embassies and other
government buildings here in beirut and around lebanon. the concern is that strikes in syria could trigger anger on the streets here. there could be any number of different targets. it could be the lebanese government buildings could become targets but certainly increased security around u.s., british, other western embassies here in beirut right now. >> all right, nic, be safe. nic robertson in beirut. more than 2 million people have fled syria to escape that bloody war. >> those refugees seeking shelter in syria's neighboring countries like lebanon where an estimated 725,000 people are now living in refugee camps year the syrian border. >> cnn medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta is in the kahn valley. sanjay, give us an idea what things are like where you are. >> well, we are in bekaa valley
which slitly walking distance from the border from lebanon to syria. this is are the refugees are coming. you said the number 725,000. this is one of the largest camps in this particular area. about 5,000 to 6,000 people which half are children to give you some idea. let me point out something else that i think is very important that we're hearing on the ground. and that is the numbers, 725,000, those are really people who are registered with the lebanese government as refugees. what we're hearing, the vast majority of people, they don't register. so the numbers here in lebanon alone are refugees living in situations like this could be closer to 1.5 million or 2 million, according to the people we're talking to. but it's tough to get an idea. this is what life is like here for refugees. they have very poor sanitation. they don't have fixed water supplies. this particular camp has been around for two years. so it's one of the ones that's been longer standing.
but they are very scattered throughout the country. as a result, they don't have the same organizational principles that we've seen in other refugee camps around the world. but this is what we're seeing here. >> what's the struggle daily or food and water, just the basics? i can see the housing behind you is makeshift, whatever supplies they can get together to make shelter but to get the necessities, what's that like? >> it can be challenging, we're hearing -- you know, in many camps, you're relying on ngos, other nonprofits to help supply food and water. certainly, some of that goes on here. for example, unicef is an organization that's helping to supply some of the medical splice in this area. even children, we're hearing in some of the locations have to actually work at some of the farms to make money to buy food and water. despite they're refugees, they still get assistance but still needing to maintain the basic supplies themselves.
you think about lebanon as a country, the population around 3 million. if you start to add, 1 million, 2 million refugees, it becomes very difficult on this native country itself. so there's this back and forth friction between the nature tiffs of lebanon and the refugees. this is not a permanent settlement for people. in some ways, it could be, but because of that friction, it won't be. so you have people who come here out of a fear of violence, and now come to a place where they're not necessarily wanted and that adds to the difficulty and confusion as well. >> and, sanjay, the people you that talked to there, do they want to go home? do they have an optimism that things will work out, or are they discouraged? >> well, i think there's two answers to that. despite that they're living in a refugee camp here, many people think it actually could be cheaper to go back and live in syria. cheaper than living in a settlement like that which i
find hard to believe but that is what we're hearing from people here. but there's this nervousness about strikes, military strikes occurring around an area like damascus where refugees come. it's a complex situation when you start to visit these refugee camps. people want to go home. they have family at home. they're worried about the strikes. it's cheaper to go back home. we were with a family earlier a mother and three children came across the border. a 4-year-old had been injured in one of the explosions had has burns. an 8-month-old, they had to walk from damascus to here which is quite some distance to get to safety. it's not by any means ideal and not by any means permanent either. >> sanjay, thank you so much. we really appreciate it. you can find out how to help the 2 million syrian refugees. visit the impact your world page.
cnn.com/impact. >> you now, to a very different story. american's unlikely diplomat. dennis rod moan. this morning, the worm left north korea after spending nine days in that state. it's not known what exactly he was up to. but he reportedly met again with his, quote, friend, reclusive dictator kim jong-un. magnificent sight in the sky after nasa launched an unmanned rocket to the moon, watch. >> five, four, three, two, one -- zero, ignition and liftoff. >> launch was an historic one. the 90-foot rocket took off from the facility friday night. it was the first time nasa launched a rocket to the moon from virginia in 50 years. nasa said the probe nicknamed laddy is designed to study the
atmosphere and environment. it traveled 223,000 miles before it reaches its destination on october 6th. >> i'm sure there were kids out, people interested in space, able to see this. clear skies along the eastern seaboard really made it possible for that rocket launch to be seen friday night. >> really cool stuff. we want to bring in cnn's alexandra steele, how does the weather play in this? >> yes, there's an interesting angle to laddy. before laddy, communication from space to work was sent through radio waves. it could be sent rain or shine. now with laddee, communication with laser. you see that teeny little light? that little light, the problem with weather, it can't be sent through rain, even clouds make it difficult. you need virtually clear skies so with ladee, they have to aim
it precisely at three detectors in new mexico, california and spain. so ensure a clear shot, essentially cloud-free so we can essentially then be able to take clear pictures. that's kind of the interesting picture with ladee. we'll have to see what happens. the goal is to have 3d video through robotics. in terms of weatherwise, incredibly warm condition, a dominant ridge of pressure. bringing temperatures, north platte, 104 yesterday. it should be at 82. so this ridge stays in place, this heat, full throttle on, straight for the weekend. really no relief in sight. to the east coast, what we've seen, last night and the night before, very cold conditions, even patchy frost around the region. not quite as cold this morning as yesterday morning, guys. certainly temperatures well cooler than what we should be. things will gradually warm up for a gorgeous weekend in the
northeast and mid-atlantic. >> thanks. a fashion faux pas on a tweet. one designer taking heat for comments he made on syria. arsenio hall is back. we'll have comments on one one of late night's biggest stars. remember the dog pound? system...

well, it's been said that all publicity is good publicity, but designer kenneth cole finding out the hard way that is not always true. >> yeah, cole sparked internet outrage thursday with a tweet that some say made light of the dire situation in syria. we've got zain asher with us. >> reporter: hi, designer kenneth cole made headlines with a controversial tweet this week. boots on the ground or not, let's not forget about sandals, pumps and loafers. some say cole was using the situation in syria to advertise footwear. it's not the first time, he got into hot quarter in 2011 when he tweeted during the uprising in egypt that millions are up in
cairo, rumor has it they heard our new spring collection is now available online. >> i've always used my forum to promote social issues including aids and war. i'm well aware of what comes with the approach. if this encourages discussion about issues, then all the better. >> kenneth cole is well-known for taking a stand on issues, he's taken out billboards on things. obama care outspoken, and chick-fil-a has made his views on same-sex marriage known. ultimately the question is will it hurt or help kenneth cole's business. maybe shoppers are used to this behavior from cole and don't see it as an issue, or maybe they do. it's a private company so you never know how this might affect
the bottom line. but marketing experts say it doesn't matter because it's all about publicity. the tweet was from ken noth cole's personal account, though, and not the corporate account. suzanne and victor. >> zain asher, thank you very much. coming up on "new day," highlights from a heartbreaking giants game. a relatively unknown pitcher comes just one strike short of making major league baseball history. it will also warm your heart. after that, we're going to show you these little guys, more on these adorable cheetah cubs wind they found a new home at the dallas zoo. ♪ i'm glad you came all your make-up before bed. f but do you really?

jim, good morning. >> reporter: victor, president obama left the g-20 summit without the support he wanted for a strike against syria, and his problems don't end there. as there's plenty of skepticism waiting for him back in washington. it was a short overseas trip that took its toll as president obama appeared exhausted and admittedly gave lengthy answers, sidestepping the question of the hour asked by cnn's brianna keilar. >> if the full congress doesn't pass this will you go ahead with the strike? >> first of all, in terms of the votes and process in congress, i knew this was going to be a heavy lift. >> reporter: the president declined to answer the question. not just once -- >> you know, brianna, i think it would be a mistake for me to jump the gun and speculate because right now, i'm working to get as much support as possible out of congress. >> reporter: but three times. >> and you're getting a direct
response. brianna asked the question very well. >> reporter: a more direct response had come earlier from one of mr. obama's own adviser in an interview on npr. >> the president, of course, has the authority to attack, but it's neither his desire nor his attention to use that authority, absent congress backing him. >> reporter: the president avoided that one, too. and repeated its case that the administration has evidence to have a strike on bashar al assad for last month's chemical weapons attack. >> my goal is to maintain the international norm on banning chemical weapons. i want that enforcement to be real. i want it to be serious. >> reporter: also sounding serious -- >> translator: it was a very friendly conversation. we'll stick to our guns. >> reporter: russian president vladimir putin held his own conference where he talked about

on the president's trip to russia, thank you. military planner, keeping their options open. >> our tom foreman and retired major general spider marks look at some of the strategies the u.s. could unleach if the president goes ahead. >> hey suzanne, hey, victor. what we know about this plan, most of all is is that it's still evolving. we talked about the idea of ships coming into the mediterranean, unleashinging a barrage of cruise missiles into syria. but missiles can be launched from not only ships but can be dropped from aircraft and submarines. is it possible that we could see all of these at work? >> tom, i'm expecting all of these to be employed. i'm expectinging submarines, they are already positioned in the eastern mediterranean. they're available for use. this is a picture of a b-52. i'd also expect to see b-2s
coming out of liteman air force base and missouri, filing out across the atlantic, refuelling in the mediterranean and launching into syria without having to penetrate syrian airspace. >> this is a much more robust attack than what we've talked about thus far. and the ships themselves would carry hundreds of missiles. why would you want all of this involved? >> well, tom, it's physics. you can only launch so many cruise missiles at a time. you want to increase the number of platforms as we have described. primarily because you want to have targets hit in quick succession to have continuous pressure on the regime. we don't want assad to have an ability to respond. we want him to keep his head down. we want him confused and we want chaos to rain within this regime. >> let me play devil's advocate here. in a complicated system like this, there's more that can go wrong. let's say one of these planes develops mechanical problems, strays across the border.
and somehow crashes in syria. now we have a plane and a crew down in that country. what does that cause? >> tom, this is called a friction of war. military planners prepare for all contingencies. this is one of those. that's why marines are already afloat with the navy. they could be involved with a rescue operation. more importantly, the air force has rescue and search capabilities. teams in place that are world class. they will not leave behind any fallen comrade. >> just as the plan has been evolving. it could continue to evolve and evolve even as circumstances dictate. suzanne, victor. >> tom foreman and spider marks. appreciate it. still to come, tokyo, japan, istanbul duking it out who is going to host the 2020 olympics. but each city has big hurdles. we're going to explain up next.

respond either way. >> will we help syria, yes, we will. we're doing it right now, we're supplying arms. >> reporter: the rest torquical fireworks were a fitting end to what one reporter called putin-palooza with a g-20 summit that would make the russian czars that the president was strutting his stuff. president obama worked in one last dig when he met with a group that represents prominent prorights activists. >> i got my start as a community organizers. >> reporter: the president he'll have more to say about the crisis in syria in a speech on tuesday. even democrats say he needs to make a more forceful argument for action as nancy pelosi told one newspaper, a stronger case has to be made to the american people. victor. >> cnn senior correspondent jim acosta on a trip with the president. thank you. also coming up on "new day,"

>> but not right away. the president would first ask congress. the next day, sunday, the administration begins to make its case, that the regime ordered a gas attack, and on monday the president makes his pitch to mccain, and he sounds supportive. >> we have to bring assad down. >> and then house leaders talk about a strike. >> we're not going to tolerate this type of behavior. >> he crossed a line kwraougz chemical weapons. >> but when the officials face a senate panel there is a mixture of support and skepticism. >> i don't know we can say by attacking him he is not going to launch another chemical attack. >> ten senators support a strike on syria, and seven oppose it. in the house the president's team faces another day of
questioning by lawmakers. >> people shouldn't be allowed to gas their citizens with impunity. >> there should be no american boots on the ground in syria. >> the president heads overseas taking his case abroad. >> i didn't set a red line. the world set a red line. >> he arrives at the g-20 summit, but the uk and china and russia oppose military ent interventi intervention. some lawmakers are getting an earful. >> why are you not listening to the people and staying out of syria. it's not our fight. >> we have to stop assad at any price. >> the president says he is ready to strike syria with or without an international consensus. >> 1,400 people were gassed and if we are not acting, what is that saying? >> he declines to say what he will do if congress voted no. >> i think the week started off
good for the president with the congressional leadership and the house leadership, and as it has gone on it underscored the challenge that he faces. >> brian todd is joining us live. the tally shows the president has an awful lot of work to do to get approval, but how is he going to do that? what is he facing this weekend and the days ahead? >> he has a tough lobbying campaign ahead. it's going to take every ounce of the president's political talent and that of his top security team to convince congress to vote for this measure, and even then it may not get it done. the president is at least slightly ahead in the senate, 25 yes votes authorizing the use of force against syria, but 19 no votes and maybe more importantly, 56 undecided votes in the senate. in the house, it's tougher for the president. 24 yes votes at the moment, and 119 no votes, and 270 undecided,
and 20 unknown, presumably members who made up their minds but not revealing how they are going to vote and it's not clear at all the democratic leaders in the house are going to be able to convince the majority of their members to vote in favor of the authorization, so the president has a tough grind in the house spending all weekend along with the security team making phone calls. >> thank you, and we'll talk again soon. president obama has a difficult job convincing even u.s. allies on his quest for a strike on syria, and right now france is the only country onboard. there are some in the possible category, like japan, australia, turkey, saudi arabia, and the united emirates, and russia and china and germany totally reject the idea, as well as nato.
>> it has proven to be a tough sell for many americans, with 6 out of 10 people opposed to an attack against syria. >> rosa flores are in new york where syrian residents are expected to march today. i had a chance to take to syrian americans today and they seem to be split. what are they telling you? >> they are pretty split, but they are firm on one thing, and their common message is hands off syria. they are using skype to organize, and the name of the organization is called the syrian american forum, and they have about 2,000 members across the country and they are planning to be here today in new york to march, but their biggest event yet is a march in washington, and that's planned for monday and they plan to bus families from as far as florida and michigan to washington, d.c. to deliver the message to ask
congress not to take action in syria, and they told me that what some of their biggest fears is the loss of life and they also worry a lot about the destruction of infrastructure. i was able to skype with one person, a doctor in damascus, and they are telling us that they are afraid of destruction of infrastructure, and so there is a lot of fear. the syrian americans who are here and constantly in contact with syrian americans, they are afraid the next time they call their family member will not be able to pick up. >> rosa flores in new york, thank you. let's go to new york where protesters are planning their own demonstrations. they are planning to put pressure on the president and congress. tell us how they are doing this. >> all a question of timing
here. you think about president obama back in washington after the trip abroad to the g-20 summit, and the full-court press is at the home front and they trying to put pressure on him right outside his front door. in four hours they will gather there and then marching to the u.s. capitol, and that's a path that is symbolic when it comes to this issue. president obama has gone to congress to try and get approval there for a strike, and the house is going to return from summer vacation on monday, and on break many lawmakers heard from the white house, and they told cnn top officials reached out to more than 125 members over the past two weeks. members of congress also heard from the constituents at town hall meetings and events back in the district, and a vote in the house are a week or two away,
and that gives opposition a chance to organize. >> emily, we heard from members of congress, and we have been hearing from them all week, and although there are some who potentially want to support the president, this is unpopular with a lot of their constituents, you have spoken with members about which way they are leaning and which leads here, the element they are representing their constituents, or that they have to use their own conscience and judgment? >> a good question, and until they push that betten to vote, we won't know. jerry conley, and he is a democrat and he said the main thing he is hearing is they don't want to get involved in
syria, and with that in mind, congress is going to say no to the president? here is what he said. >> if the vote were held today, we would. there is a lot that is going to happen within congress and in public opinion and in the international community between now and when we take that vote, so i still think that it's a work in progress and it's too early to predict one way or the other. >> he says he hopes that some language can be found that builds consensus working towards a yes vote, and what happens if the u.s. doesn't intervene. >> the president cancelled his trip to california so they could go ahead and lobby the lawmakers, and he is going to be advertising and talking to the nation on tuesday. >> let's talk about a different international story. america's unlikely diplomat, dennis rodman.
this morning the worm left north korea after spending five days in the communist state, and it's not clear what he was up on his second tour, and he didn't do anything to free an american prisoner, but he did meet with his friend, the dictator, kim jong-un. an unmanned rocket to the moon, watch. >> and we have liftoff. >> the launch was a historic one. the 90-foot rocket took off from virginia on friday night. it was the first time nasa launched a rocket to the moon from virginia in its 54 years of lunar missions. the probe is designed to study the lunar atmosphere and environment. the probe will travel more than 223,000 miles before it reaches its destination on october 6.
if you live along the eastern seaboard there is a chance that you actually got to see that launch. >> clear skies in states, including maine, west virginia, and some people saw it. >> how does the weather play in all of this? >> what we had was communications done from space to earth through radio waves, and with ladee, it does. so the problem with that is it can't be sent through rain and clouds are difficult, so you need sunshine. so what they have done is placed three detectors on earth, new mexico, california and spain to insure a clear connection because the weather will be clear and thus the connection sending the pictures or images
and sounds as well. in terms of the weather, we have heat. that's the story. denver for the last three days, record heat, from denver to arizona to louisiana, intense heat. beautiful weather in florida today, 86 degrees at game time. actually warmer in minnesota than in miami today. and athens, the game of course. south carolina and georgia, 86. northwest, that's where the rain and flooding is. >> thank you, appreciate it. still ahead on "new day," was it an accident or murder. a georgia teen found dead in a rolled wrestling matt.

>> wow, students cheered on their football team and the bleachers collapsing under their feet, and five students were hurt in the fall, but thankfully none of the injuries serious. it was ruled an accident, a georgia teenager found dead and rolled in a gym mat, and now a new independent autopsy revealed he was murdered. i got a chance to sit down with kendrick's parents to see how far they will go to get answers. they say science supports what they thought all along, that their 17-year-old son, kendrick, was murdered at his high school in georgia. >> an accident. we just didn't believe it. >> soon after his body was discovered upside down in the center of this gym mat,
investigators determined there was no foul play and he got accidentally got stuck while reach are for this shoe, and the conclusion was he was asphyxiated by his own body weight. >> when i went to view his body, you could see something happened. >> in the report written the day kendrick's body was discovered, paramedics considered the gym a crime scene. kendrick's body was exhumed, and a pathology performed a second autopsy and checked the right side jaw. he found something surprising. >> that area where the trauma had occurred had not been defected, and it was still intact. it has never been opened at the time of the first autopsy. >> and no mention of the bruises in the official autopsy or local crime report.
>> there was hemorrhage indicating trauma to the area, and that trauma basically causes blood to come out of the blood vessels and into the soft tissues, and we were able to diagnose the fact that there was blunt force trauma to the area. he took one blunt force to the neck. >> just to be clear, you are calling this a homicide? >> yes. >> we have complete confidence in our medical examiners and stand by our autopsy report was the statement by the georgia bureau of investigation. >> i have never been in a case like this, where they didn't bother prosecuting him. it's mystifying. >> this is the first time you called a case a homicide and everybody has backed away? >> pretty much so the only other times was where there was
another case where there was a deliberate cover-up, where people just didn't want the facts to come out. >> the u.s. justice department is considering whether to get involved? >> if they don't come in, they are only sending the message to the world, you can kill as long was can get away with it. >> did you still talk to kendrick? >> yeah. >> what do you say? >> i ask him, sometimes, what happened? sometimes i blame myself for not being there. >> how long are you willing to fight? >> until i die. if it take me until i die, i will fight until i die. >> now the justice department is still reviewing this case, and the u.s. attorney in georgia, michael moore, he says he would like to speak with the family's pathologist about that autopsy, but they say to the justice department, they will not investigate this as a civil rights violation. yelling and finger jabbing,

paralysis on this issue, if we are serious about upholding a ban on chemical weapons use, then an international response is required and that will not come through security council action. and that is where i think the division comes from. >> florida democratic congressman allen grayson joins us from orlando and he is on the record as a firm no vote. good to have you. >> we had a chance to speak earlier in the week, and i wanted to ask you, first of all, is there any circumstance that would change your mind here, that you would agree the use of military force would be an acceptable alternative? anything you want to hear from the president or his advisers? >> if you go to the "washington post" website and many other websites, you will see that the count currently is 25 in favor
in the house, and 224 against. 217 is the majority of the house right now. a majority already indicated their popposition to this, and the ratio is 9 to 1 against in the house, and that's close to the public's ratio as well. to answer your question, what i need to see is that america is threatened directly. our allies are threatened directly or there is genocide. we have a department of defense, and it's not the department of offense. it exists in order to protect americans and protect our allies. the president has not shown any direct threat to any americans or allies at this point. nor do i expect him to be able to do so. >> congressman, i want to read part of the op ed from the "new york times" that you wrote. it says we reached a point where the classified information system prevents trusted members
of congress who have security clearance from learning essential facts, and this extends to matters of war and peace, blood and money, and the security state is drowning in its own phlegm. excuse us for that last bit. are you saying the administration throughout the entire op-ed is intentionally hiding information about syria and what they know and are trying to mislead congress and the american people? >> i stand by what i said. the administration is asking us to go to war on the basis of a four-page document and 12-page document and none of the underlying evidence. all those with classified clearance have not been shown any of the intelligence reports, not any of them. and the reality is, any of the information released is meant to encourage war and attack, and we are not hearing both sides of
the story. the administration actually said that it's trying to flood the zone with information to get us into this war and completely foreclose information that the public and the congress needs to hear to avoid the war. there are two sides to every story, and let's hear the other side. >> congressman, are there any other options where you would be onboard? there are a lot of things people are talking about, a 45-day waiting period to have assad sign a treaty getting rid of his chemical weapons, and there is the idea of further sanctions to the u.n., and is there anything you are offering or putting on the table? >> yes, certainly. you know, the president said three months ago that he thought that we should be arming the rebels, and he was going to do so. here it is three months later, as far as i can tell, the rebels have not received a single weapon. that would have an effect on the balance in syria. we have 2 million refugees that
need relief, and i think we should do the best to help the living. our bombing would cause further outflow of at least a million people, and we should deal with the problem on the practical basis. the fundamental problem on the president's strategy is not a question of some kind of moral element lacking, but the element is it's not going to do any good but it could do a great deal of harm, including dragging us into a war in the middle east. on our website don'tattacksyria.com, many have signed the petition because they don't want anymore war. >> which group of rebels would you arm? secretary kerry said 11 groups who are really bad rebels and he admits they are aligned with al qaeda, and is the country
confident they know which guys there are the good guys, so to speak? >> that's one of the fundamental problems in our trying to stick our finger in the quagmire. it's got nothing to do with other territories. if we attack syria, then under the mutual defense pact, iran might attack our interests. it's a grudge match between crazy sunni shiites, i don't understand why we have a dog in that fight, we have no chance of ending. >> thank you very much. appreciate it. the conversation is continuing in just a few minutes. annette clark is undecided at this point, and as you can hear the congressman, it's very much
a heated debate. >> the congressman quoted votes, more than 200 congressmen undecided. and what is behind the spike in the number of cases of whooping cough, and what authorities are doing to stop it.

caucus, all democrats. national security adviser, susan rice, has been dispatched to drum up their support but they come from heavy democratic districts that are skeptical of military action. >> of the 43-member congress, four indicated they will vote "yes" for military action, and five indicate "no" votes. >> it's good to have you with us. you are third in leadership for the caucus. you say that you are right now on pause. why? >> well, i think it's important to give the president a hearing. i have yet to be briefed with the classified information. the information that has led the administration to make this decision. i think we need to provide everybody with all the
information before jumping to a decision. >> what would you like to hear from rice in terms of swaying the decision for the president for a strike? >> it's important to get his rational and we understand the limitations of the strike, what it will mean if there is retaliation, and what is the united states prepared to do and what the cost will be financially for this nation to involve itself in this way. there are a whole host of questions that still need to be answered for the american people, and certainly for my constituents. >> there is something that you said to a usa today reporter, and you are talking about a humanitarian crisis on the home front. here is what you said. when i look at the children in syria being gassed by their own leader and i see a 1-year-old child shot in the head in my own district and there is nothing in
my district to not do anything to to end the gun trafficking that led to that tragedy, i feel that pain, too. >> it's a stretch to attribute -- >> those are your words, the national government is not doing anything to end the gun trafficking. >> when i say the national government, i am including the congress, and you stretched it to the administration. this action being taken in syria is a diversion away from a whole host of things that the congress itself has not acted on in the best interest of the american people.
>> congressman, when you say it's a diversion, it sounds like you are leaning towards not supporting a military strike in syria. >> i am not leaning as of yet, and i am waiting to be briefed and as soon as i am briefed i will have a better sense of whether it makes sense for our nation and constituents. >> are there any other alternative plans that you would get onboard with that is shy of a military strike. i know they are talking about further sanctions for a security council, and some sort of chemical weapons treaty, is there anything that you have heard that you could support at this time? >> i think there should be an all of the above approach to this. i think military strikes, you know, we are using force. this could be a declaration of war in the eyes of some in the region, and so we need to be able to make sure that we exhaust every measure at our disposal as we look at this option of the military strike.
now, i know that we are waiting the u.n. weapons inspectors' report, and it would seem to me that we would give that report a fair hearing and that we would use our diplomatic might as well in the u.n. at the general assembly, and doesn't necessarily have to be the security council in order to get a whole host of nations on board here. >> congressman clarke, thank you so much. this is a huge turn. some say that twurbging promotes pr promise skew tea. but did you know it could cause fires?

the partisan battles that have gone on. in congress to authorize the use of force in the house, and in the senate, 25 members said they will vote "yes" to authorize, and 19 will vote "no," and 56 undecided senators. in the house, 24 members say they will vote "yes," and 119 will vote "no," and so they are trying to make calls to sell this. diane feinstein, chair of the senate intelligence committee. she acknowledges the lack of appetite for military action, but she says to trust the intelligence. >> there is no question what is coming in is overwhelmingly negative, and there is no question about that, but, you see, then they don't know what i know. >> senator feinstein has gotten
intelligence briefings on the syria chemical weapons attack, and we are talking about the big guns here, john kerry, chuck hagel and dempsey, they are going to hold a hearing for all house and senate members. this is a major push. >> the fact that the senator says they don't know what i know, we know the president will go before the american people on tuesday, and is that going to be his approach? you don't know what i know, but i know what is best here? >> it very well could be. you know, not to telegraph this, but this is going to be one of the most crucial political moments of his entire term, is he going to be able to convince the american people and the congress with that address to promote military force. he understands the emotional tilt americans are feeling after more than a decade of war. take a listen. >> i know that the american people are weary after a decade of war, even as the war in iraq is ending and the war in afghanistan is winding down, and
that's why we are not putting our troops in the middle of somebody else's war. >> even after the tuesday address at the white house, this campaign is not over. the senate may vote in the couple of days after that address, and the house vote may not come for days or maybe even weeks after that. this has turned into some extraordinary political theater. >> brian todd, thank you so much. in a few minutes, we are going to talk live with the colorado congressman, mike kaufman, about the vote on whether or not to strike. >> the plan is proving to be a tough sell, especially to some americans, nearly 6 out of 10 people are opposed to an attack against syria. >> rosa flores is in new york where syrian americans are expected to march later today. and we have andrea schmitt is
washingt washington. rosa, let's start off with you. what are they telling you? >> the ones i talk to, of course are afraid of a strike on syria, and they are also worried on all fronts because they have family here in america and family in syria, and they tell me they are in constant contact family members via skype, and they are afraid they won't be there the next time they call. they have an organization called the syrian american forum with 2,000 members here in the united states, and they are going to be here in new york today demonstrating but they are preparing for their biggest event yet, and that's monday in washington, d.c., and suzanne and victor, they are telling me that they are bussing people from across the country, as far as florida and michigan so they can participate on monday, and their message is simple, they say, in one slogan, hands off
syria. suzanne, victor? >> rosa flores for us in new york, thank you. let's go to washington now. washington will witness a protest today. >> it's not unusual to have protest outside of the white house, and do we expect that there will be a large demonstration? >> we know the vote on the syria in the house could be a week or two away and that time is giving the opposition groups more time to organize and get their voices heard, and they are planning a coalition rally in the white house, and it's just in a few house, and they will be outside a white house that president obama just returned to a few hours ago, and then they are going to leave from the white house and march up to the u.s. capitol. last week we heard from the same group and they are going to march on monday by the syrian
american forum. they are hoping to co-incide wih the members in congress when they return. they are hoping their voice will be added to what is becoming an increasingly complex conversation. >> all right. thank you. thousand to a different international story. america's unlikely diplomat, dennis rodman. this morning the worm left north korea after spending five days in the communist state, and it's not clear what he did, and he did not do anything to help free an american doing 15 years of hard labor, but he apparently met with his friend, kim jong-un. a 90-foot rocket launched from the flight facility in

♪ your ticket to a better night's sleep ♪ president obama faces a tough fight to get congress to authorize military action against syria. cnn is keeping track of how lawmakers are leaning. >> by our account, the president's challenge is bigger in the house, 119 members plan to vote no while just 24 are saying yes. >> among those still undecided is a republican congressman of colorado, and he joins us now from denver. you said you would consider military intervention in syria if the president could make a good case to congress. first, let's listen to something they said on friday at the g-20 summit. >> over 1,400 people were
gassed. over 400 of them were children. this is not something we fabricated. there are times where we have to make hard choices if we are going to stand up for the things we care about, and i believe this is one of those times. >> we had a colleague from across the aisle, congressman grayson, who was on earlier this morning and he said he wants to hear the argument for national interests? is that what is holding you up? what are you still waiting on to hear from the president? >> i think the president is kphap commander in chief, and he laid down a parker in terms of the need to take action to detour assad government from using the
chemical weapons, and i served on multiple tours of duty, and i know it's easy to get in and hard to get out, and so the questions that i want to ask, first of all, i want to see the evidence to affirm that, that the government -- the assad government did direct the use of chemical weapons, and i want to see the elements of the plan that it would in fact be enough to detour the further use of chemical weapons, and i want to make sure that it doesn't -- that action doesn't escalate or involve our direct involvement in syria. so i think there are a lot of questions. on monday and tuesday, i will inbound briefings intelligence and classified level briefings, and i will be asked the hard questions. >> congressman, obviously your role in this is very significant, as many of the members are and the president is asking for input here, but does
it concern you at all, on friday whether or not he would move forward without approval, and he did not answer if that was a possibili possibility. does that concern you at all that maybe this is not a useful exercise but few actual. >> well, the president's team, the conference call showed their efforts to consult with congress, and they were not going to take the issue to a vote, and then the president announced that, and he reversed
himself. i take a conservative view of the constitution that the fact that the united states is neither under attack or threat of attack, that the president does have an obligation to come before the congress for an up or down vote. the president's position right now is he doesn't have a legal obligation to do so. the rational in going before congress now, when the president knows it's an uphill fight in the house, and it's questionable in the senate, and an uphill fight in the house, i am -- part of me is asking does the president want a way out, or does the president think it's a politically sensitive issue with the tide of public opinion turning against this that he wants to have the fingerprints of members of congress on this? it's disappointing, i think in terms of the presidential leadership, but nonetheless he is the commander in chief, and i think the credibility of the united states is online, and he laid down that parker about the
red line. >> i want to get in here quickly. members of the house have said that if a member votes yes they might as well clean out their offices because their constituents do not want this. do you think that's accurate, you will lose your seat? >> the calls i am getting in my office, in the district office back home, and in washington are overwhelmingly against really on a bipartisan basis. this is not something really limited to republicans. but i have to make a decision not based on the politics of the moment but what is in the long-term interest of the country that >> you think some members will lose their seats because they vote for this action? >> i can't speak to that. i don't know, you know, that in politics, you know, a month is a
