9:01 pm
>> and thanks for joining us. president barack obama says his objective is clear, to degrade and destroy isis so it's no longer a threat to the middle east and the united states. he spoke wednesday after meeting with baltic leaders in estonia. >> but critics say the president's message is muddled. john acosta has our report. >> reporter: president obama came to estonia so they would realize that the u.s. has their backs. he said he wants to destroy the isis terrorist group. responding to calls to get tough on isis, president obama all but vowed vengeance for the killing of american journalist steven sotloff. a message echoed by vice
9:02 pm
president biden. >> we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice because hell is where they will reside. >> reporter: attempting to clarify his policy for dealing with isis, the president said that he wants to wipe out the terrorist group. >> our objective is clear and that is to degrade and destroy isil so it's no longer a threat to not just iraq but to the region and the united states. >> reporter: then, a few breaths later, the president appeared to soften that goal. >> we can continue to shrink isil's sphere of influence, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem. >> reporter: aides quickly told reporters that that comment was
9:03 pm
only an acknowledgement that isis could still pose a threat. it was an attempt to clean up the president's remarks. >> we don't have a strategy yet. >> reporter: after mr. obama admitted he didn't have a military plan for isis in syria, a remark the president explained further. >> it is very important, from my perspective, that when we send our pilots in to do a job that we know that this is a mission that's going to work. >> reporter: pivoting to the crisis in ukraine, he tried to talk abo said that the acts of aggression will not move to the baltics. the president made it all too clear he's not buying moscow's denial. >> the action of the separatists of ukraine and russia ought to be consigned to a distant
9:04 pm
history. >> reporter: to hammer that point, the president met with u.s. forces who will be stepping up their exercises in the region. >> thanks to all of you for stepping forward, for putting on a uniform, and for preserving in this mission which is so vital to the security of our nations. >> reporter: as for isis, the president downplayed quick action against the terrorist group in syria, pressed twice during his news conference, he declined to offer a specific timetable. that's a big question that will come up in the next stop, the nato summit in wales. >> and that was jim acosta. we have more now on the murdered journalist steven sotloff. he said he was always the kind of person who tried to help those less privileged than himself. >> a spokesperson for the family asked the isis leader where is
9:05 pm
your mercy? they ultimately sacrificed his life to bring the world their story. >> he was no war junkie. he did not want to be a modern day lawrence of arabia. he merely wanted to give voice to those who had none. steve was no hero. like all of us, he was a mere man who tried to find good concealed in a world of darkness. and if it did not exist, he tried to create it. we will not allow our enemies to hold us hostage with the sole weapons they possess. fear. >> and british prime minister david cameron says his country will never give in to terrorism. he spoke to parliament about the isis video which shows the beheading of steven sotloff and the group's threat to kill a british hostage next. >> a country like ours will not be coward by these barbaric killers. if they think that we will weaken in the face of their threats, they are wrong. >> and later today, cnn is
9:06 pm
expecting to sit down one-on-one to sit down with the british prime minister david cameron. that will happen in the next couple of hours. meanwhile, the mother of james foley is offering her support to the family of steven sotloff. foley was killed by isis militants last month. >> we send all of our love and hugs to them. unfortunately, they are sharing the pain we are. so we just ask the world to embrace them as the world has embraced us. it has helped us so much. >> americans are not the only ones being beheaded. a funeral of a soldier for a man who was killed by the isis group. he was captured last month. isis posted a video of his beheading on social media websites on saturday. and isis will be discussed on the sidelines of the nato
9:07 pm
summit getting under way today in wales but the focus will be the unrest in ukraine and russia's allege role of fueling the crisis. >> and american troops will be there. nic robertson has the details. >> reporter: operation rapid is the most robust message thus far to recalibrate his involvement in eastern ukraine. a thousand troops, as many as 200 troops on the soil in ukraine as early as the middle of september. this is a peace-keeping mission, we're told. no live fire but training exercises in getting around and diffusing ieds. it's a very clear message for president putin. we've also been told to expect from nato clear announcements on
9:08 pm
a sort of recalibration of how it plans to be ready to respond to this aggression as it is perceived coming from russia. there will be repositioning of equipment bases in places like poland, the baltics, much closer to the border with russia. there will be a persistent movement of troops so the troops are on a much, if you will, quicker footing to respond to the source of situations that are developing in ukraine at the moment. this is nato not only sending a message to president putin but also to those baltic states and to poland as well. he said we are a member of nato. we will stand behind you and we will support you if there is aggression behind you. ukraine is not a member of nato.
9:09 pm
a very robust message from nato that they will put their troops in ukraine for training hundreds of miles from the border of russia. nic robertson, newport, wales. is there a cease-fire in the crisis in ukraine? poroshenko said there is success. >> but the kremlin says it cannot agree to a cease-fire because it says it is not a party to the conflict. mr. putin later outlined his own peace plan which was quickly dismissed by ukraine's prime minister mr. poroshenko is hopeful a plan will emerge when officials meet. >> and there is mounting pressure from nato and the u.s. >> pro-russian separatists and
9:10 pm
there is a devastation that is staggering around ilovaisk. >> reporter: you get a sense of the scale of the task ahead from the scene behind me. this stretch of burned out vehicles, tanks, military carriers stretches for about a mile and a half down this road. we've seen an ss-21 surface to surface missile, a huge thing lying on the side of the road and tanks just ripped apart by the fierceness, by the verocity that took out this convoy. we don't know exactly what happened here. we have found the caps of the ukrainian national guard. clearly many people died because the smell of bodies washes past me now and again and there are shallow graves dug along the
9:11 pm
roadside. but one very telling piece of evidence that we have found as we've been looking through this area is this. this is a russian military supply box filled with the food that whoever ate it clearly did eat. here it says, army of russia. and so however much russia may deny that its tanks and its troops, its units are actually involved on the ground in ukraine in the donetsk region where i am, this kind of evidence tells a very different story. diana magnay, cnn, ukraine. much more on our website about what our crew found around ilovaisk. that's at all right. a quick break now. next on cnn, more than 1900 ebola deaths but there are some

9:15 pm
organization before and volunteered again after nancy writebol and kent brantly contracted the virus but he was not actually treating ebola patients. >> more than 3500 people have contracted the ebola virus in western africa since december. >> in the past week along, nearly 400 people have died but there have also been some remarkable recoveries. ebola has claimed more than 1900 victims in west africa. but some very fortunate patients are beating the deadly virus, including britain's william pooly. he contracted the virus working as a volunteer nurse in sierra leone. on wednesday he was released from a london saying he feels very lucky. >> my symptoms never progressed to the worst status of the disease. people i've seen just dying
9:16 pm
horrible deaths, really. i had some unpleasant symptoms but nothing compared to some of the worst of the diseased. >> reporter: in the united states, nancy writebol is also seemingly ebola-free. last month the american missionary was fighting for her life after contracting the virus in liberia. she was flown back to the u.s. for treatment and released from an atlanta hospital two weeks ago. on wednesday, telling reporters she relied on her faith to get through the ordeal. >> i had no clue what was going to happen. of course i knew what the outcome could be. and yet there was no fear. there was just this sense of lords peace and presence with us and i thought, whether i live or whether i die, it's going to be okay. it's going to be okay.
9:17 pm
>> reporter: writebol and pooley are among a handful of patients who received the experimental drug called zmapp. not everyone who has taken zmapp has been cured and there are a limited number of doses so researchers are rushing to come up with a vaccine. they worry that the virus is outpacing their efforts against it. >> six months into the biggest ebola outbreak in history, we are losing to contain it. >> reporter: doctors say it will get worst before it gets better and up to 20,000 people may be infected before the outbreak ends. michael holmes, cnn. >> nancy writebol who you saw there was speaking for the first time publicly since she contracted the disease in july. >> writebol became the only second american patient in the u.s.
9:18 pm
she spoke to anderson cooper on wednesday about her ordeal. take a listen. >> at what point did you start to feel something? >> i had gone to the isolation unit on the 22nd of july. i went home and i called one of our doctors and said, you know what, i'm not really feeling really good. i think i have malaria. on saturday the doctors came in. they said, nancy, we know you don't have ebola but we're just going to run the tests anyway. you're not feeling better, you still have a fever and we just want to make sure. we want to set everybody's minds at ease. >> until that point had you thought that it could possibly be ebola? >> no. it didn't worry me at all. >> even though you were working with a unit of ebola patients? >> yeah. and even now i look back and i don't really know how i got it. >> just incredible for someone
9:19 pm
who a couple of weeks ago had ebola. nancy writebol speaking to anderson cooper. it's been a remarkable recovery. >> the virus has claimed the lives of at least 1900 people and experts have warned that the virus is spiralling out of control. of course, we've talked a lot lately about the treatment, how important it is to get hydration and good treatment as writebol did and dr. brantly. a lot of people are not necessarily getting that but, of course, you combine that with the zmapp and you'll see this recovery. >> it's a 90% fatality rate and now it's a 40% fatality rate. >> yeah, it seems to be getting better because they are, working out treatment. all right. cnn, of course, is on the frontline of ebola. we'll travel to the northern

on the european central bank when it meets later today. ahead of that, the euro touched a one-year low before remaining steady on wednesday. there are expectations the ecb will take further steps to stimulate the struggling economy across the european union. a leading drugstore chain here in the united states has now stopped selling cigarettes and other tobacco products. cvs becomes the first major pharmacy chain to make the move in all of its stores. the company rebranded itself cvs health estimates it could lose about $2.5 billion in annual sales but worth pointing out, that's a small sacrifice compared to the company's profits. go to cnn/ to read more. >> are they going to take out all of the money and hot pockets and all of the -- i'm just saying. there's an element of hypocrisy
9:24 pm
in all of this. >> perhaps. with that in mind, let's go to ivan. the remnants of dolly are causing us some problems. >> you're not a fan of the big gulp? >> i'm with you on that one. >> let's say good-bye to dolly but still torrential downpours with northeastern mexico. we'll talk about the other storm in a second. i want to take you into mexico and show you what has been going on as far as the flooding with the heavy downpours well, in some cases, paralyzed traffic. those drivers there looking just fine. some of the trees not as much. they are toppling over. these are the scenes of the tropical storm.
9:25 pm
it's not a hurricane, certainly not a strong one. it was a tropical storm and typically with tropical storms they are known for their rains and this one is still dumping on them. in fact, in the last 24 hours, there are 100 millimeters, 150 millimeters in tampico there in mexico getting in on heavy rains and we're still going to talk about a residual tropical moisture. i think we're pretty much done after today which is on the western side of it. let's get in on that. we're not quite done with dolly. on the other side we have the hurricane. it's a pretty strong storm and it's going to get a little stronger but it's not going to be making landfall. on the eastern side of it, you see these bands here enhancing the tropical moisture on the western side.
9:26 pm
this is very hilly terrain. they are in for flash flooding and also the potential for mudslides over the neck couple of days. this is the official forecast from the national hurricane center. there you see it peaking at 160 kilometers per hour. so we're going about 100 miles per hour in about a day. again, staying safely away from the coast but it's going to be a rain maker. guys? >> okay. thank you. >> thanks, ivan. well, we have much more ahead on the fight against isis militants in iraq and syria, including a look at the brutal tactics used by the terror organization and why they post so much of it online. also coming up, after 30 years behind bars, two american bars are now free. we will have their remarkable journey just ahead. denver international is one of the busiest airports
9:27 pm
in the country. we operate just like a city, and that takes a lot of energy. we use natural gas throughout the airport - for heating the entire terminal, generating electricity on-site, and fueling hundreds of vehicles. we're very focused on reducing our environmental impact. and natural gas is a big part of that commitment. sweets become salaries.

9:29 pm
9:30 pm
coming up on 9:30 on a wednesday night on the west coast of the united states, we'd like to welcome back our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm john vause. >> and i'm rosemary church. u.s. president barack obama is vowing to degrade and destroy isis but it could take some time. he promised justice for the beheadings of james foley and steven sotloff. >> isis militants have violated the teachings of islam by executing the journalist. the family spoke in koran. where is your mercy they asked
9:31 pm
ahmed abdi godane. >> the french prospect said while cease-fire is in the works, delivery is not authorized. embassy international has added to the war crime accusations against isis publishing evidence of mass killings and kidnappings that it says is part of a systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing in northern iraq. the brutality, let's just call it evil, is so extreme it's beyond what many could ever imagine. >> and to understand it, we believe we have a responsibility to show some of it. and we do warn you, what you're about to see is disturbing and certainly not appropriate for children. >> cnn nic robertson reports, isis uses a strategy to use terror to instill fear that raises questions about the
9:32 pm
humanity of those who follow it. >> reporter: the more isis grows, the more it fights like a regular army. like infantry backed up by artillery, tactics that have landed them heavy weapons. but these fighters are barbaric in a way no fighting force has ever been before. cataloging and posting near real-time, their war crimes pictured last week from human rights groups capturing over 100 syrian soldier paraded in their underwear and then images of those same men dead. but isis wanted to make sure that the world knew it was responsible, wasting little time posting this video. showing commanders giving the order to fire, then the nas
9:33 pm
nauseating hail of gunfire. like me, you want to turn away but when we do, we give in. we are terrorized and their goal is achieved. almost a decade ago, al qaeda in iraq which ultimately morphed in isis, he sprung to fame, beheading american businessman nicholas berg. bin laden's deputy criticized the tactics and it stopped. as a result, extreme violence for propaganda seems to have no bounds.
9:34 pm
isis is wholesale slaughter. the iraqi troops is institutionalized in the organization now, even women, even young children are given severed heads to hold. isis leader could be even more despicable than the terror we have seen in the past. these are fighters who have so debased and degraded themselves, they have lost moral compass. and as any military commander will tell you, that puts them almost beyond control and ultimately a danger to their own organization. but unless they implode, despite the veneer of a regular army. >> just as your missiles -- >> reporter: there will likely be more horrors like these. nic robertson, cnn, london.
9:35 pm
>> and the u.s. defense secretary chuck hagel says all options are on the table to fight isis, except a ground invasion in which the pretty big option to take off the table. >> exactly. and hagel says the islamic militants pose an imminent threat to the american interest and the u.s. is prepared to deal with that threat. he spoke with chief u.s. security correspondent jim sciutto. >> reporter: brutality of isis playing out on television screens across the world, defense secretary chuck hagel says there is only one u.s. end game. >> we're providing the president with those options to degrade and destroy isil's capability. >> that's the end game, end and destroy, not contain? >> it's exactly what the president said, destroy and degrade. >> you said isis is an imminent threat that we have and unlike any threat that we have ever
9:36 pm
seen. after your comments, the administration seemed to pull back somewhat. it's described as a regional threat, something that the president did later that week. is it an imminent threat to the u.s. homeland or to the region? >> first of all, i didn't say to u.s. homeland. i said to u.s. interests. >> you said a threat to every interest that we have. >> i didn't say homeland. i said look at all of our interests. look what happened 24 hours ago in the latest video of another citizen as to what isil did. it is a threat. isil is a threat to this country, to our interests. >> reporter: but is there a plan for military action beyond the current mission in iraq? is part of the strategy military strikes inside syria? >> well, that's an option and we are looking at all of those options. >> have you prepared those options for the president? >> the president has asked for different options and we've prepared those for him. >> and syria air strikes are among them? >> all of these are options that
9:37 pm
the president wants to see and we've been working with the white house, not just starting working with the white house, we've been working with the white house for weeks. the president talks to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, ambassador rice. this isn't something that just popped up the last week or two. we've been working this for the last few weeks. >> a former soldier now leading the nation's armed forces, secretary hagel said that the video showing the executions of jim foley and steven sotloff affected him deeply. >> how did you personally react when you saw those videos? >> it makes you sick to your stomach but it, again, reminds us of the kind of brutality and the barbarism that is a foot in some of these areas of the world and it is our responsibility, the president, the vice president, mine, all of us to do everything we can to stop this now because it won't just recede into the gray recesses of history until we stop it.
9:38 pm
>> jim sciutto reporting there. >> talking to chuck hagel. well, the united arab emirates has become one of the most high-profile group calling the group a scurge. the uae expresses its strongest condemnation of terror acts and criminal practices of violent extremists. in particular, the uae condemns the atrocities of the so-called isis ransack property and damage mol le and demolish religious sites. two of the most holy sites in all islam, saudi security sources have cracked down on extremists.
9:39 pm
isis is not without supporters in the kingdom. a short time ago i spoke with a professor from princeton university. professor, how big of a threat is isis posing to the royal family and the possibility that isis could overthrow the royal family and take over mecca and medena? >> i don't think they can take over mecca but the oil fields of saudi arabia because that would constitute a major threat to world security and i'm sure america and other western countries wouldn't permit it. having said that, isis definitely wants to topple the royal family and many of the recruits are from saudi arabia and one of the things that its recruits does regularly is to tear up and step on saudi passports. they don't recognize saudi arabia as a legitimate entity and it's not clear how many
9:40 pm
supporters in saudi arabia itself isis has. >> it would seem they have a lot of supporters because there was a poll that came out in july. saudis make up a big component of the fighters in isis. the second of arab fighters in isis. there are slogans beingpray painted supporting isis. it seems that many in saudi arabia wouldn't be too upset if isis came in. is that a fair statement? >> i'm not sure of the number of saudis who would welcome this, especially if it were to cause major economic and social instability. having said that, many young saudis who are either unemployed or bored who don't have the financial resources to either rent, buy apartments and to get married are attracted to the ideology of isis and especially
9:41 pm
as isis is seen as being victorious in the number of battles across the middle east. >> is there a problem here, though, the saudis are willing to condemn for the ideology because it's not a big leap from saudi arabia's strict interpretation of islam and the more extreme version as practiced by isis? >> there is a share in ideology in terms of interpretation of islamic religious texts but isis is a much, much more extreme version of the saudi form of islam. the mean, the saudis don't crucify and don't enslave, at least they haven't since the 1960s. so saudi arabia has moved on from -- >> but they still behead people in saudi arabia. they beheaded 19 people last month. >> they do behead people. >> there's a commonality there, isn't there? >> isis' beheading is systematic
9:42 pm
and pervasive and not as a result of due process. having said that, the saudi legal system has a lot to advance towards and i'm certainly not saying it's a wonderful system but i think there is a distinction between the saudi form of islam and that of isis. having said that, it's true that not enough saudi scholars are condemning isis and it's probably because isis does have supporters within the kingdom. >> professor, thank you so much. we appreciate your insights. thank you. >> thank you. >> very sobering. >> that's the thing. a lot of people say that jihadism spread from saudi arabia and it's essentially the same doctrine which isis is following but it's just a lot more extreme. you know, the saudis have funded militants and groups in syria.
9:43 pm
a lot of the money for those groups come from qatar and kuwait. there is a bloodbath that these countries are experiencing because of the policies that they say they didn't think all the way through. >> yep. still to come, wrongly convicted of a horrible crime, two american brothers have spent most of their lives behind bars until now. their remarkable story just ahead. [ female announcer ] we help make secure financial tomorrows a reality

9:45 pm
the u.s. department of justice is launching a review of the police department in ferguson, missouri. that's the midwestern american city where unrest broke out last month, you'll recall, after a white officer shot and killed an african-american teenager. >> officials will decide if they met standard regulations. and this investigation is separate to another federal
9:46 pm
review, specifically looking at the shooting death of 18-year-old michael brown. a u.s. judge has sentenced a man to up to 30 years in prison for shooting and killing a woman on his doorstep. >> prosecutors say the victim who was drunk and had been smoking marijuana was looking for help after she crashed her car. she knocked on the door of theodore wafer and theodore shot him in her face. the judge said that he acted out of unjustified fear and sentenced the 55-year-old between 15 and 30 years. an update now on joan rivers. her daughter says that the comedian is in a private hospital room where she's being kept comfortable. >> her daughter confirmed that rivers was on life support. however, she has not said
9:47 pm
whether her mother remains on life support. the 81-year-old star was hospitalized last thursday after suffering cardiac and respiratory arrest. a day they will never forget. two half-brothers in the united states became free men on wednesday after wrongfully serving three decades behind bars. >> after all of that time, the best part of their lives taken from them, they had only forgiveness for those who actually sent them to jail. george howell has their story. >> reporter: stepping out into the world a free man after 30 years on death row for a crime he did not commit. henry did not show anger, did not seem bitter. his first message to the cameras -- >> there's no anger in my heart. i don't like what they've done to me and my brother because they've taken 30 years from me for no reason but i don't hate them. >> reporter: an emotional reunion with the family is just the beginning for these men who have so much to catch on.
9:48 pm
even a simple thing, like how to put on a seat belt. the photo journalist on the scene shows him how. >> you have to pull it over like that and then down like that and clip it into the belt buckle there. >> reporter: 50-year-old mccullum and his half-brother leon brown spent most of their lives in prison. but yesterday, a judge in north carolina handed them both their freedom. [ applause ] >> reporter: they were both teenagers in 1983 when arrested for the rape and killing of 11-year-old sabrina buoy. but 30 years later, the north carolina inquiry assistance raised the possibility that the two may have been coerced by investigators. they also determined dna evidence from the crime could not be traced to either of the men. instead, the commission concludes the evidence on cans and cigarette butts matches the dna of a convicted rapist and
9:49 pm
murderer who lived 100 yards from where the victim was found. >> we're praying for their family and we're so glad that justice was served and the truth finally came forward. we thank god for that and we're going to go on with our lives. >> reporter: this photo captures leon brown's first steps of freedom. their father never gave up hope. >> we waited years and years. we kept the faith. god made the move. >> reporter: two men, three decades in prison, finally free and now not looking back. george howell, cnn, atlanta. >> incredible. well, the man whose dna was found at the scene is already serving a life sentence on a separate conviction. prosecutors will charge him in the young girl's death. >> not sure if i could forgive those who sent me to prison for
9:50 pm
30 years. coming up next, he was caught on camera kicking a puppy and now this guy is suffering the consequences. woman: everyone in the nicu -- all the nurses wanted to watch him when he was there 118 days. everything that you thought was important to you changes in light of having a child that needs you every moment. i wouldn't trade him for the world. who matters most to you says the most about you. at massmutual we're owned by our policyowners, and they matter most to us. if you're caring for a child with special needs,
9:51 pm
