good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. great to see you. it is friday, september 19th. 4:00 a.m. in the east. we have major breaking news out of scotland this morning. the united kingdom will remain united. voters in scotland rejecting the hotly contested vote for independence by a fairly big margin. 55% to 45%. cnn's nic robertson joins us live from scotland in glasgow. good morning, nic. >> reporter: good morning, john. results are becoming clear in the last couple hours. a massive turnout ever in scotland. 65% of the population turning out. the yes that wanted independence. they came to city square to celebrate for that in the small hours of the morning. then it evaporated. as the results came out, one
district after another around scotland for the no campaign. we heard this morning from british prime minister david cameron saying he is delighted with the result. >> the people of scotland have spoken and it is a clear result. they have kept our country of four nations together. and like millions of other people, i am delighted. as i said during the campaign, it would have broken my heart to see our united kingdom come to an end. i know that that sentiment was shared by people not just across our country, but also around the world because of what we achi e achieved together in the past and what we can do together in the future. >> reporter: we heard from david cameron saying scotland will get increased powers if they voted no. he made moves to give greater powers over taxation and welfare and health.
all those issues. that to be set up and begun very soon. he also said he would expect similar changes for england and wales and northern ireland. big issues on the move for the united kingdom. we heard from the leader of the scottish national party and movement for independence, a concession speech where he said he would continue to push for all those increased and improved powers that have been promised from london. john. >> they did not win the vote, but concessions. nic, this is a turning appointed for the united kingdom. i guess david cameron is happy because he gets to keep his job. nic robertson, thank you. still part of the united kingdom. >> and stocks and pound is up. the white house savoring a
victory. the senate thursday passed a measure to fund arms and training for moderate syrian rebels. one day after the house approved the funding. we have cnn's dana bash with more on capitol hill. >> reporter: john and christine, if it sounds quiet where i am, there is good reason for it. congress is gone. they have left town. they are not coming back until after election day. there are big issues facing this country and internationally. there w there was a lot of talk about debate of authorizing force for the president. the commander in chief to deal with isis. that did not happen. that will not happen until after election day. they punted. what they did before leaving town was to arm and train the syrian rebels. the vote before leaving was overwhelming. almost 80 senators voted for it.
it was bipartisan. bipartisan opposition as well. you heard very strong sentiment on the senate floor from opponen opponents, republican and democrat, they think this is the wrong idea. no guarantee of who these arms are going to and this money and time that the u.s. will spend training these rebels will be successful given the bad example of what happened in iraq. and so you have that coupled with those who say we have to do this. we have no choice because isis is such a threat not just in the middle east, but here in the homeland. that debate did go on in a narrow way. maybe more disappointing, but not surprising is that when it comes to the senate, it was tucked into a must pass spending bill. the bill to fund the government and keep it running and make sure there is not another shutdown, that included the authorization. it was done on purpose.
coordination i'm told with the democratic and republican leaders. he got some kabuki theater. they can show the constituents where they stand on that matter. john. >> not a lot of bravery here in terms of clean votes. president obama expressed confidence that the plan will work saying the threat posed by isis quote doesn't frighten us. secretary of state john kerry carried the same message to capitol hill saying air strikes against isis have been working. >> i don't think these guys are ten feet tall and the intelligence tells us as we begun to hit them, we have been able to prove that to some degree. >> and in france, president
hollande is promising air flights which are starting soon. the u.s. launched would more air attacks near mosul and one southeast of baghdad. cnn's anna coren live in iraq. good morning, anna. >> reporter: good morning, john. u.s. secretary of state john kerry is right. isis fighters are not ten foot tall and bulletproof. many are local tribes people, part of the sunni communities in the towns and cities in iraq who have joined isis. i think the thing is they do fight to the death. that is what we are seeing out on the battle field. there are many suicide bombers. they fill up trucks with explosives. drive them into the peshmerga frontlines. they lay land minds. this is what the peshmerga are encountering. john, there is momentum. the peshmerga are managing to reclaim the towns and villages
in the critical areas. the plan is to cut off the flow from syria. that is why they are going after places around mosul and places such as azuma where a battle is being fought intensely. we have been trying to get there some time to try and show what is taking place, but there are developments happening around the areas. as i say, the plan is to cut off the artery, the flow from syria with fighters and arms and weapons that would cripple the fighters here in northern iraq. but the focus is very much on those towns and u.s. air strikes are making a huge difference as you mentioned. 176 now today according to u.s. central command. we have france agreeing to conduct air strikes in iraq. they are not prepared to go into
syria. you have the australians committing eight f-18 fighter jets to the war. john, momentum growing as military advisers come into the country here in northern iraq to train, assist and advise the forces. not just the kurdish, but the iraqi security forces to try to put together an effective fighting force to take the fight to isis on the ground. john. >> the size of the coalition and complexity will grow as they try to retake the major cities like mosul as anna has been telling us. anna coren, thank you. the isis media machine is parading out another hostage to deliver its message. a slickly produced video with journalist john cantlie. we are not playing the video on our air. cnn's karl penhaul is live with
more in london and the isis media machine. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, christine. as you say, john cantlie, a photo journalist, was kidnapped in november of 2012. he was traveling with james foley, the american journalist executed. they were kidnapped at the same time. what the pair were working on was, in fact, a report about a previous kidnapping that cantlie was involved in in 2012 for a period of seven days and managed to escape. he was taken in 2012, november, that was the second time around for him. now in the hands of isis fighters, he has been there much longer. now this new video that isis has put out is very different from the previous hostage videos. it shows cantlie sitting at a desk almost broadcast news style and saying he will put out a series of reports in the coming
weeks of the truth about isis. he says yes, you may think i'm saying this because i'm a prisoner. of course i am a prisoner. he also says he is doing this because he feels he has been abandoned by the british government at a time when he says that other governments have negotiated their nationals out of captivity. of course, one would assume this has been done under duress, but john cantlie seems more relaxed delivering this message. this message seems a bit more spontaneous. you have a question of why isis is showing this hostage in this fashion. is it a way to change tactics to grab our attention or a strategy that john cantlie came up with and persuaded his takers to buy more time for his life or is there some other motivation behind this. christine. >> you try to put yourself in
his shoes and try to stay alive. he is a little more relaxed than the other staged videos we have seen. there is no guy with a knife. not in the desert with the guy standing over him with a knife. isis media machine trying to appeal to talk to us and also talking to people maybe who are recruits for isis as well. karl penhaul, thank you for that. other news. 12 minutes after the hour. the death toll exploding in west africa from ebola. more than 2600 people have been killed by the virus. the u.n. says it is a threat to international peace and security. they are setting up a mission for relief efforts. in sierra leone, a lockdown ordered for 6 million people. everyone confined to their homes for the weekend while house-to-house searches are happening. in southeastern guinea, a deadly

big changes are not coming. we are live with what is next. congress officially signing on to the war on isis. the senate voting to arm syrian rebels. not everyone is happy with president obama's plan. a new isis video released with a british journalist held hostage. american tourists stranded in cabo san lucas. the u.s. military air lifting people out. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. breaking news from britain. voters in scotland have rejected a hotly contested vote for independence. margin is 55% to 45%. cnn's becky anderson is live in london. becky, how is the word from the north being received in england? >> reporter: well, i think here at 10 downing street where the prime minister lives, it was
received with a lot of relief. we saw a fairly exhausted prime minister out here behind me making a speech to the nation about a couple hours ago. the scots have spoken, he said. the results are clear as the sun rose over the united kingdom. a country of four nations rather than three. this is what david cameron had to say. >> scotland voted for a stronger scottish parliament backed by the strength and security of the united kingdom. i want to congratulate the no campaign for that for showing people our nations really are better together. i also want to pay tribute to yes scotland for a well fought campaign. and to say to all those who did vote for independence we hear you. we now have a chance, a great opportunity to change the way the british people are governed and change it for the better.
>> reporter: what's really interesting here is the way the u.k. is going forward will change. david cameron is a passionate supporter of the united kingdom and a democrat. that is, he says, why this vote, this referendum was so important. scottish public demanded and it was important he gave them what they wanted. there was a gap as wide as 22 points in the polls about two weeks ago. that gap narrowing so tightly. that just before the voting opened on thursday, nobody could have said exactly which way this was going to swing. do we are, 1.6 million scots voted to break-away. they just didn't wake up the majority overnight. going forward, david cameron promised as vowed by the british government to devolve more powers to scotland in the weeks
and months ahead and do more funding themselves. things will change in scotland, but it is mirrored by more devold devolved powers. the north of england squeezed to scotland to the north and westminster where everything happens to the south. do expect to see a lot of change here in the u.k. going forward. so far as the united kingdom is concerned, it can still boast four nations this morning. >> four nations, indeed. you can see the pound is rallying today and british stocks are up, too. markets are relieved. becky, thank you. a development for the president's battle plans against isis. the senate on thursday passed a measure to fund arms and training for syrian remembbels.
the house had been lobbying hard for that. the president thanked congress for backing his plan. >> i'm pleased the majority of democrats and republicans in the house and senate have voted to support a key element of our strategy. our plan to train and equipped the opposition in syria so they can help push back these terrorists. >> now the wide margin in the senate disguised unhappiness of the way it was inserted into the must-pass funding. also, there was unhappiness of the overall strategy against isis. >> when they say we have a 10% approval rate, democrat or republican, it is because of the hi hy hypeand because we shove war in a spending bill. >> why do you insist on telling
the enemy what he won't do. why is it the president of the united states keeping telling the people that are slaughtering thousands don't worry. we won't commit ground troops. >> after the funding vote, congress adjourned pushing off debate of further military action until after the november elections. >> president expressed confidence and the plan will work. in france, president hollande committed french jets against isis targets soon. that in addition to the reconnaissance flights they are running. in iraq, the u.s. military launched two more air attacks near mosul and southeast of baghdad. we have anna coren live in northern iraq. anna, they are spreading out the air strikes. they are trying to cut off the lines of supply from syria to the isis militants.
>> reporter: definitely. that is the aim, christine. the air strikes at the moment focused on supporting the troops on the ground to continue the advances they are making in the towns and villages that have been occupied by isis since june. the ultimate aim is to do that. cut off the supply route in syria. the sanctuary for the isis fighters who so easily drive across the border from syria into iraq. supplying fighters and weapons and ammunition. the equipment that they have been using to take so much of the iraqi territory in the past few months. those air strikes just critical to what is happening here. certainly in northern iraq. not just providing the cover for the ground forces, but as you say, taking out the enemy targets. the artillery and armored vehicles and convoys. it really is denting the
momentum of isis and containing them in the areas. you know, as we have been talking to you over the past few days, we have been up with the peshmerga and seen them in action. they are not going and taking huge parts of the country back, but it is a piecemeal approach in villages. i got off the phone from the senior kurdish official, christine. it is the mop-up operation that is time consuming. the reason being is the land mines and ieds and explosives that isis is laying along the road and in the buildings and in houses. it really is slowing down the peshmerga advance. obviously they are also waiting for more of the global coalition to come to the fight. you mentioned that france is committing fighter jets to cover the skies of northern iraq. we know australia is committed to those air strikes as well. so momentum is definitely building as more and more countries, christine, get
involved. >> anna coren in northern iraq. thank you. a chilling media message from isis. the video features a british journalist. because he is delivering propaganda under duress, we are not playing it on air. we have more with karl penhaul in london. >> reporter: he was kidnapped in 2012. he was traveling and kidnapped at the same time as james foley. the u.s. journalist that was executed by isis. this video that we're seeing now is very different in nature to the way isis has shown its previous hostages. in this video, the jihadi known as jihadi john is not in the video. instead, john cantlie is at a desk in a news style.
that is central to the message. what he is saying is that over the coming days and weeks, we will deliver a series of programs or reports telling us the truth about isis. now he says, of course, you may think i'm doing this because i'm a prisoner and he says, of course, i am. he also goes on to say he feels he has been abandoned by the british government. he says while other european countries have negotiated their hostages out of captivity, britain and u.s. have failed to do so. that is why he is in this mess now. it is difficult to tell why isis has changed tactic on this. is it is attempt to gain attention in different fashion or a scheme that john cantlie put together and persuaded his captors. a gamble to prolong his life. if that is the case, there is no guarantee he will succeed. he says in the video, i will do
this and for the short while, but no telling whether that will keep me from death. so still very much under threat of death, john. >> john mccain was prisoner of war for years in north vietnam, he said no video by a prisoner can be taken at face value you. karl penhaul, thanks. with all the attention on is isis, it is easy to forget of the multiple terror plots traced to the al qaeda affiliate. the al nusra front and khorasan are intent on attacking airliners. the u.s. will not turn to bashar al assad for help in dealing with the threats. secretary of state john kerry declaring the u.s. believes
assad broke international law by using chemical weapons on his people in april. the death toll exploding in west africa. more than 2600 people killed by ebola. the united nations declared the outbreak a threat to international peace and security. officials are moving quickly to set up the relief efforts. in sierra leone, a three-day lockdown for 6 million people. everyone confined to their homes for the weekend. in guinea, a deadly mob attack on educators trying to teach locals how to avoid getting infected. eight people, three journalists are killed there. there is now a black market list for the blood of survivors. >> what a disaster.
people there, when they are told they have to stay in and in quarantine. some are not able to eat. they are breaking out and hiding and trying to get away to feed their families. it is all bad choices for some of these people. 42 minutes past the hour. time to an early start on money. european stocks higher on the news that scotland will stay in the u.k. the pound is up against the dollar. the euro and asian shares are up. u.s. stock futures are higher. dow is up 73 points. if this holds, it would be a record day on wall street. dow and s&p record days yesterday. news of the u.k. driving the rise and concern of the alibaba ipo this morning. the biggest you have seen. alibaba secured its place as the largest u.s. ipo. the stock priced at $68. the top of the price range. it raised $21.8 billion.
only inn receivestors are able trade. here is where i inject my advice about ipos. it is the risky investment you can make. this company now you will start to look under the hood and see how it makes its money and the risks. it is the riskiest thing you can do. >> who gets the inside track? >> the big money. the investment bankers and hedge funds and friends and family access to the big time investors on wall street. it could pop. you get it at the starting price here and all the people who bought it at ipo price get rich and you make a buck or two. it doesn't cover your fees. >> be careful. 43 minutes after the hour. passengers injured in an emergency landing. a flight forced to land. smoke in the cabin so thick you could not see the person next to you. the dramatic video after the
