tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN June 24, 2014 2:00am-3:01am PDT
>> it's opened a whole new line of study on flame spread that perhaps would have taken much longer to achieve if we hadn't had the experience of king's cross. can a new government save iraq as terrorists move on to baghdad? john kerry promises u.s. support if groups can come together and compromise. we are live in iraq with what's happening today. >> shocking new allegations about the secret wait list at v.a. hospitals. records were changed to cover up the number of patient who is died waiting for medical care. lawmakers were breaking down the developments. tornadoes flooding the midwest and more storms are on
the way. indra petersons is tracking what you need to do. i'm miguel marquez. >> i'm christine romans. i's 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's begin in iraq where secretary of state john kerry is getting a sobering assessment of what's happening on the ground. iraq is facing a new reality. it comes a day after he sat down with prime minister, nuri al maliki. meantime, the isis push toward baghdad is getting louder with conflicting reports of who has control of the largest oil refinery in iraq. more red on the map, the more the extremist footprint continues to grow. let's get to baghdad live with the latest. oil officials are telling us the southern part of the country where two-thirds of the oil output is safe. when you look at the red stain spreading through iraq, clearly is a very, very difficult time
right now. bring us up to speed. >> reporter: it is incredibly tense. that tension is ratcheted further with the claims of who actually does have control of the major domestic refinery here in iraq. we are already seeing just the impact translate into stretching hours north into the country. it's pretty, pretty low in what remains under government control in the north of the country. there was one message that iraqis here were looking for in secretary kerry's visit and they got it. that is help is on the way. take a listen, christine. >> the support will be intense, sustained and if iraq's leaders take steps to bring the country
together it will be effective. it will be in a way that respects iraq's sovereignty while affecting america and the region's vital interests. >> reporter: the key phrase there is, if iraqi leaders take the necessary steps to bring the country together. this help from the u.s., it doesn't come without strings. they need some movement on the political front. the u.s. knows perfectly well without a political resolution on the horizon to bring the sunni tribes back over from the isis side, any military support is sticking fingers into the dam. it will only help in the near term. the longer term solution that has to come from within iraq itself. christine? >> what a mess trying to figure out how to fix it. thank you so much. a poll shows americans are
not pleased with the president's performance. 58% disapprove of the way obama is handling foreign policy. a slim majority, 51% support the decision to send 300 military advisers to iraq. breaking overnight, startling allegations at the veteran's administration. a key whistle blower says records were changed to show how many died waiting for care. pauline told drew griffin she was ordered by supervisors to make changes some within weeks as the waiting list scandal blew up. >> somebody is going on that electronic wait list and where people are identified as being dead, somebody is changing that saying no, they are not dead. >> correct. >> to hide the fact people died on that lift? >> that's my belief.
>> what would be any other purpose? >> there wouldn't be any other purpose. >> now, meantime, lawmakers kept pressing for answers at a late night hearing. v.a. officials could provide little clarity. >> under all the skrut any, all the lights, all the disclosure, phoenix is still doing this kind of stuff and you guys have had them under a microscope and you have been there four times and this is new? >> congresswoman, i don't know the details of the accusation. >> could you provide it for us? could you provide the v.a. answer to that in a timely manner? >> i will certainly try, as i understand it. >> it is unclear if this activity stretched beyond the phoenix facility. dozens of centers are being investigated. the treasury will investigate ou the irs lost thousands of e-mails to and from
lois lerner. they told the house oversight committee, the investigation has already begun. her hard drive crashed in 2011 and e-mail data was lost. the back up system has e-mails dating six months back. they suggested he was holding something back. >> you didn't tell your i.g. that some of the documents weren't going to be provided? or did you cause someone to find out at the white house at treasury or your i.g. >> i do not f. you have evidence of that, i would be happy to see it. >> i asked you a question. >> and i provided an answer. if you have a way i would like to know about it. we are going to provide you 24,000 e-mails. >> my time has expired and i have lost my patience with you. >> white house attorneys will testify before the committee tomorrow. >> wow!
rough and tumble. >> yep. happening today, a hearing for the house committee to discuss children coming to the u.s. without their parents. 15,000 kids crossed the border since october. the u.s. said it doesn't have the resources to care for all the children. vice president biden met with leaders in central america to discuss the problems. >> those countries don't want the children back. >> it's impossible for the u.s. if the parents are there they have to get them back. it's a tough situation. >> many of those country officials are saying don't send them back to us. we don't have the ability to take care of them, either. >> they have to go with their parents. they have to go through a system because they are minors. it clogs up the system. >> a court of appeals with the 2011 drone attack. he was a u.s. citizen who defected to al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. the white house believed it was legal to take him out as long as he posed an imminent threat.
there are questions about why he was a threat. that was left unanswered. >> president obama with a push to help expand family benefits for the working class at a white house summit. he urged the government to allow flexibility for family leave and child care. he says the u.s. is the only developed country that does not mandate it. he says outdated policies are increasing challenges facing working parents. vice president joe biden gave a look into his own finances. he doesn't have much in the bank. poor joe. biden says he doesn't own any stock and doesn't have a savings account, although his wife does. both claims for his part, biden says he has a great pension and a good salary. >> for the record, he should be saving 10%. and then investing 10%.
there you go, way to go, joe. >> a lot of grand kids. >> futures pointing lower. the major three broke a seven day win streak. the dow very close to 17,000. that would be another big milestone in a phenomenal run. just seven months ago. a european shares are mixed on lower than expected economy. asian stocks are higher. tensions in iraq. oil prices pulled back from $107 a barrel we saw last week. exports from iraq have remained unaffected on baghdad easing fears of the supply destruction. they have going to see record post war exports. if the southern part of the country can stay out of the hands of isis, production is going to keep going.
>> it's mostly shia. there's not a lot of production from iraq. anything creates -- >> absolutely. absolutely. >> all right. millions waking up to the threat of dangerous storms one day after tornadoes tore through the midwest. indra petersons is tracking it today. tell us something good. >> after the break, my friend. >> donald sterling trying to prove he hasn't lost his mind as his wife tries to sell the l.a. clippers without his consent. next.

about the oil refinery. the military still has control, despite reports militants seized it. more of iraq falls under extremist control. let's get to baghdad live with the latest. is there anything that can flip this dynamic with the sunni isis? the sunnis seem to be with them. >> reporter: commitment of u.s. military help. that is a very good start. that is what has been promised by secretary kerry. he worries the help needs to go side by side with political commitments from the actors on the ground. take a listen, miguel. >> the support will be intense, sustained and if iraq's leaders take the necessary steps to bring the country together, it will be effective. it will allow iraqi security
forces to confront isil more effectively and in a way that affects iraq's sovereignty, while also respecting america's and the region's vital interests. >> reporter: that is pretty crucial, miguel, if they take the necessary steps. it's by no means guaranteed now. difficult to get the sunni tribes to move over with the isis extremists, to move to the government's side without serious commitments from the ruling from prime minister nuri al maliki, that they will be inclusive. the policies being extraordinarily discriminatory. it will be behind them. time is of the essence here. now, much of the ground, this is what we are hearing from security forces, much of what has been already lost to isis is going to be very difficult to
retake, even with a commitment from the sunni tripes. let alone they spend time trying to cut the best political deals. time is absolutely of the essence. that oil refinery you mentioned is on the highway to baghdad. if that falls, then isis is another crucial step closer to the iraqi capitol. miguel? >> thank you very, very much. hard to see how that dynamic changes. a poll shows the american public unhappy with america's performance. 58% disapprove of the way president obama is handling foreign poll sis. a slim majority, 51% support the decision to send 300 military advisers to iraq. breaking overnight, stunning allegations of doctored paper work. veterans records were altered to cover up how many of them died waiting for health care.
