to benjamin netenyahu. >> i don't believe i'm poking anyone in the eye. this is "new day" with, chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> good morning, welcome to your "new day," it is thursday january 22nd just before 6:00 a.m. up first, a race against time with the lives of two hostages on the line. japan says it has had no contact with isis. we're hours away from the deadline to pay a $200 million ransom. >> japan's prime minister vowing not to give into the terrorists this as foreign ministers from 21 countries, including secretary of state john kerry meet in london today on how to battle isis in iraq and syria. we'll begin with will ripley live in tokyo. will? >> alisyn here there's a growing sense of urgency as the government tries to open some kind of a line of communication with isis trying to buy more time. as the deadline approaches in the lives of two innocent men. hang in the balance. >> this morning, less than 24
hours remain until isis' murderous deadline. japanese officials say they've been trying to communicate with the group through third parties since tuesday. turning to two governments in the region. jordan and turkey for assistance it's a race against time as the japanese prime minister calls it. >> to the prime minister of japan, although you are more than 8,000 kilometers away from islamic state, you willingly take part in this crusade. >> isis releasing this propaganda video tuesday, threatening to kill two japanese citizens unless they receive $200 million. 42-year-old yukawa an aspiring security contractor captured in august. and this newly released video shows 47-year-old goto hours before his disappearance in late october. the video shows the freelance journalist along the turkey/syria border preparing to cover what he calls the suffering of the syrian people.
>> if something happens -- >> the two reappearing this week, kneeling side by side in orange jumpsuits in front of a masked isis executioner. >> as the deadline looms closer no indication if japan will pay the ransom, the prime minister calling the deadly ultimatum unacceptable. although he hasn't explicitly ruled out the payment. this coming after isis released videos showing the brutal executions of five western hostages since august. here in tokyo, unnamed government sources are saying that kenji goto the wife of one of hostages his wife received an email in december after he went missing, from a group that is suspected to possibly be the isis kidnappers that wanted between 8 and 16 million. a sign that perhaps the group would be willing to accept a smaller amount. the question will the japanese
government pay. >> will ripley thanks so much. this is not the first time that isis has demanded millions for a hostage. last august the terror group wanted 100 million euros before killing american journalist james foley. are their demands a sign of financial desperation, barbara starr joins us from the pentagon with more. >> from the u.s. officials' point of view it's all about the reign of terror. they believe that isis is continuing this for many reasons, putting these videos on social media, they use it as a recruiting tool and it does work for them. also to terrorize the people already under their control. in syria and iraq. you know isis has gained a lot of territory there in recent months what u.s. officials are closely watching is isis stretched too thin. do they have so much territory, so many people under their purported control at this point, that they may have trouble holding onto it and they may be
needing to show their power because they are having trouble holding onto it? u.s. officials watching a different isis trend, even more closely. and that is the rebranding of isis. export isis. we reported yesterday on cnn that isis fighters people claiming to be isis fighters were showing up in yemen. u.s. military officials tell me there are reports of isis fighters claiming to be isis fighters showing up in southern afghanistan, it is this issue of the export of their terror. rebranding. people claiming to be isis going into the fight in other places. that's one of the big concerns for the u.s. because if these types of export fighters if you will can come to the united states carry out attacks here claiming to be isis it is a serious concern for momentland security. michaela? >> now to the cries nis yemen. rebels holding the president captive have reached a tentative
deal agreeing to reform its constitution in order to get rebels to abandon government buildings. who controls this key u.s. ally? how much power does their president have? cnn senior correspondent nick paton walsh got access to the presidential compound. incredible access you got. >> in the capital this morning it appears as though the deal is holding to some degree. a key element of it is yet to be realized we are expecting and part of the deal was that the houthis would immediately release the presidential chief of staff. that has not happened. at this stage. according to the minister of information on her twitter account. so we're looking also at the houthi militia, who seem to be slowly removing themselves from around the presidential residence residence, the presidential palace that was their side of the deal. the other side of the deal for
government to uphold was substantial changes to the new draft of the constitution. the terminology of the agreement was so wide we don't know what the constitution will look like. the key question for the u.s. is their ally president hadi still going to be the man pulling the strings or the government going to be the houthis. a calmer day, but a lot of things still to get worked out. and the big question when is the chief of staff coming home. that's not been answered things could still fall apart, many wondering if the president and yemeni army would do if they don't like how things are playing out. >> please be safe we'll check back in with you later on. we're talking about yemen because it is the hub in the war on terror with implications that could hit us at home. few know the stakes better than commander kirk liphold, the former commander of the "uss cole," when the warship was
attacked by al qaeda in 2000. 17 u.s. soldiers lost their lives, he's now a senior military fellow at military families unitsed. commander, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, chris. >> right now there are two u.s. warships, they're right there in the red sea, they could be very helpful. obviously in evacuating embassy personnel in yemen. should we do that now? what is the balancing test? >> think right now and the next 24 hours are going to tell. obviously the president has struck an agreement with the houthi rebels that he will give them a more inclusive role in forming a new constitution which they didn't have before which is why they continued to press their attacks in the capital. but time will tell only very shortly. because the reality is we need to make a decision it is much better to conduct what we call a noncombatant evacuation where do you get the embassy people out under benign conditions where they're not under fire.
the last thing the marines want to do is go in in a hostile environment, where they have to create safe space, where they may have to incur civilian casualties and trying to insure we can get the embassy out safe. as you know the last thing we want to do is have another benghazi. >> understood. that meaning that you see a threat coming there's a chance to prepare and do things, and you wind up having hostage situations and much worse, that's why we're keeping an eye on it. why we're keeping an eye on yemen at all, how important is what's going on there to u.s. interests all the way back here at home? >> well yemen is the fulcrum of the war that we are currently waging against al qaeda. >> why fulcrum? >> it is the balancing and tipping point where al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, which operates in free rein in some areas in yemen is still the greatest threat that al qaeda represents to this nation. in some way they're competing with isis for recruits.
trying to make sure they can strike us. i was concerned they're going to be able to launch an attack into europe first, clearly with the "charlie hebdo" attacks, that may have happened. their aim is to come to the united states and conduct an attack here. because it would be spectacular, it would show they have capability and still have the ability to man, train and equip their people to do those type of terrorist operations. >> what will you never forget about what happened on the "uss cole" what it taught you about your fighting men and women and the threat that exists there. >> the biggest thing i think we as a nation learned is when we are attacked by terrorists we must respond decisively and swiftly to make sure a they understand that american lives will be safeguarded anywhere in the world. i will never forget the 17 sailors i lost. i don't want that loss to be in vain. we did nothing for 11 months we're still living with the consequences of the 9/11
attacks. we need to be shoor to hold the terrorists accountable. >> do we think that the government and the military in control right now in yemen, can they hold there? and if not, what is the fate with these houthi rebels? can we work with them? what does the situation demand of the u.s. and the allies? >> yemen is a very unique case the bottom line is they have never been a trustworthy nor reliable partner in the war on terror. they've allowed us to conduct operations. >> they've helped more than some as you know. >> they have helped more than some. on a personal case they still have one of the principal conspirators for the "uss cole" that they refuse to be held accountable for what he did in killing 17 sailors. by the same token, that government albeit it is more a government of the capital of sanaa than the entire country, has allowed us to conduct operations train with their people, teach them how to be bet anywhere counterterrorism operations so they can be a more effective. and not only countering aqap al
qaeda in the arabian peninsula, but also in maintaining their territorial and government integrity as a nation. >> so you have to have patience here to watch what happens, and also you're saying the u.s. and others must be ready to act because the situation could be lost quickly. >> absolutely. the last thing we want to do is see the government collapse the houthi rebels take over. you have another broken state out there that doesn't control its territory. that cannot maintain control of aqap operating on its territory. we don't need that type of entity. we want to have a government that is capable of stretching its control out into the country to insure that these terrorists do not have sanctuary and safe haven. >> if they can't do it you're saying someone must do it for them. >> somebody has to. >> thank you very much for your service. >> thank you, chris. ailsen? >> back at home house speaker john boehner defying president obama over his policy on negotiations with iraq. boehner invited israeli prime minister benjamin netenyahu to address a joint session of congress next month about the iranian threat.
the invitation is ruffling feathers at the white house, let's bring in white house correspondent michelle kosinski she is live there tell us the latest. >> well republican congressional leadership in a press conference said two words -- hell no, they won't be stopped by what president obama wants to do. and this is being called a drama, a snub a foreign policy confrontation. that republicans reached out to the israelis and invited the prime minister benjamin netenyahu, to address a joint session of congress in february. he accepted. but all of this completely bypassing the white house. the white house said they haven't heard from the israelis at all and it is a departure from protocol as to what a world leader generally does before visiting another country. house speaker john boehner says netenyahu will discuss the threats posed by iran and radical islam. this comes at a time when some in congress including some democrats, want to impose more sanctions on iran as iran continues to delay in the negotiations over its nuclear
program. the white house has said that they will veto additional sanctions, saying that negotiations are what are in the best interests of both the u.s. and israel. michaela? >> very interesting developments michelle kosinski thank you. a u.s. navy cargo ship has run aground off the coast of japan. about six miles east of okinawa. right now we're told there are efforts under way to try to refloat the vessel. the 127 crew are still on board. we have learned that they are uninjured. fortunately no leaks or hull damage has been reported. and at this point, no word on what exactly caused the accident. ukraine is now under siege. this is not just a skirmish this is a battleground. ten civilians have been killed dozens injured. militants began shelling areas in donetsk. secretary of state john kerry is accusing pro russian separatists of a blatant land grab. ukraine claims it isn't just separatists, it is in fact
russian military. the president there says 9,000 russian troops are fighting alongside rebel forces in ukraine. russia denies this as they have denied any involvement from the beginning. take a look at these images, this is a massive fire destroying an apartment complex in edgewater, new jersey the fire is contained, the firefighters are still on the scene battling it. the fire displacing more than 400 people but incredibly officials say everyone in the four-story building was able to get out safely. there's a local state of emergency that has been declared. and public schools in this town will be closed today. no word yet on what caused that fire. we can smell the smoke here in manhattan from across the river. >> i drove by this on my way in this morning, i thought something big and major is happening over there. should i stop and get some pictures of it? i knew there was a news event unfolding. >> we're about, where we live probably seven, ten miles away. it woke me up this morning, i
thought there was something on fire in the house. there's smoke on the streets here. this apartment building is alleged to have suffered -- >> a big burn-down before. so there's an investigation, but the fact that everybody got out? what an amazing thing. hey, i don't like to be the bearer of bad news in fact i won't be we'll let chad myers do that. the year's first major snowstorm sock the middle east this weekend. >> the good news is just like last week's ice storm for philadelphia and parts of the poconos, this happens on saturday. it's already snowing in oklahoma. but by saturday morning, this storm gets into the northeast. and it will be cold enough to make snow now i think in new york city its going to change to rain for a while, keeping the amounts down. in the poconos, catskills, adirondacks, berkshires there could be the eight-inch to 12-inch snowfall here it is from maine even down to the west
of washington, d.c. front royal will pick up some snow. it depends on where the storm ends up. is it in the ocean or closer? the closer it is the warmther it is, but the farther off. the drier it will be so you won't get as much snow. it's the balance, where does the low set up. i'm going to go four to six for new york city a little less on long island. and here's the next storm system for monday. i'm more impressed for this one, it could make more headaches, because it's a monday storm as it rolls through monday afternoon into tuesday, we'll keep watching it more likely a nuisance storm unless you're sliding around it in your car and then it's a big problem, so be safe it's a saturday. >> it's a winter. >> i see alisyn's baptism by cnn gear out in the snow monday morning. >> i hear you. unbeknownst to you i'm flying in to new york i'm flying out for the weekend, flying back in on sunday. it sounds like i might not be able to get back for snow coverage. >> she's calling a snow day already.
the fbi wrapping up its investigation of former ferguson police officer darren wilson. will the officer who shot michael brown face federal charges? mitt romney and jeb bush only one can be the nominee. and so these two arch nemesis have a date to hang out? what could they be meeting about? we'll tell you. ♪ turn around ♪ ♪ every now and then i get a little bit hungry ♪ ♪ and there's nothing good around ♪ ♪ turn around, barry ♪ ♪ i finally found the right snack ♪ [ female announcer ] fiber one. my name is daniel. i have diabetic nerve pain. the pain felt like my feet were on fire. i had these very burning needle-like sensations. i knew i needed to see a doctor. my doctor said, "let's try lyrica." lyrica has helped relieve my pain.

house speaker john boehner setting up a showdown with president obama over nuclear talks with iran. the speaker inviting israeli prime minister benjamin netenyahu to appear before congress to address the iranian threat without informing the white house. here now to discuss this is pyatter bin er peter beinart, and margaret hoover a sirius xm host. the white house feels that
boehner is poking them with this netenyahu invitation it's hard to see it otherwise. >> they haven't said that they said they're waiting to hear what's happened. it does appear to be a direct response to the president coming to the chamber the other night and saying if you dare pass a sanctions bill i will veto it. it was not necessarily as republicans interpreted it in the spirit of bipartisanship. facing the largest republican congress since 1920. the president to just start issuing veto threats isn't in the spirit of working together. so you can understand boehner feels like it's his prerogative. he can invite whoever he wants to. >> unusual. >> a little unusual but also bipartisan. there's a sanctions bill moving in the senate that is being pushed by senator bob menendez a democrat from new jersey so there's support for it. >> what is the israeli prime minister expected to say, lay out what the arguments are here. >> the israeli prime minister will come and attack president
obama's iran policy. it's one thing for bainer to disagree with obama's policy. it's another thing for him to invite a foreign lead near congress with a specific intent of attacking his own president's policy. imagine if democrats in congress on the eve of the iraq war, who were against the iraq war, had invited the president of france to come to congress to tell them why george w. bush was wrong to want to invade iraq. >> the circumstances are a little different. >> but the point is to invite a foreign leader specifically to come and attack your own president's policy? i can't think of any precedent for that. >> i don't think it's that explicit though. >> what do you think he's going to do? >> he's going to make a case for a strong u.s. foreign policy against iran and who is better to deliver that. >> and endorse sanctions. >>. we'll see, they say the topic of the conversation is going to be about radical islamism and the middle east and you know there is bipartisan support for israel in congress. there are basically three
countries that i could think of where they have calculated that their support from the u.s. congress is far more important than their relationship with the u.s. presidency. taiwan the republic of china, israel and frankly the relationship with between cuba and the united states congress is more important with the president because they're the ones who control the embargo. these countries have made a calculation that their relationship with congress is far more important and that is the key. >> israel is deeply divided on this question. benjamin netenyahu is going to come and attack and support a sanctions bill and attack a negotiating process, that his own intelligence agency a great piece out of bloomberg today, noting that the moussad, benjamin netenyahu is facing an election in israel in march. separationly the u.s. is interfering in that election by giving him a huge soap box so he can go back to israel and say
look how popular i am in the united states while he's in the midst of a tough re-election fight. >> it's bebe's choice to come. to say the u.s. interfering in israel's election is a little bit much. you have american billionaires supporting bebe's election. >> shelden adelson, the biggest funder of the republican party is also a long-time huge funder of the republican party. that's the lynchpin. >> joe biden yesterday said he would consider challenging hillary clinton in 2016. he hasn't decided. that would not be a deterrent. margaret what do you make of joe biden's comments? >> hard to know joe biden is often loose-lipped. it's hard to know if that was a strategic blunder if he was actually doing that on purpose or if his tongue got ahead of his -- >> skis? >> planning. i think it would be good for the democratic primary and good for hillary clinton and good for the entire field to have more people who could be president running.
right now hillary has frozen the field. there will probably be a left-wing insurgent candidate, but that's not good for the democratic party. >> joe biden is a supremely confident leader he believes in himself. >> even when he's wrong. >> and is that a novel trait for politicians, that they have confidence even in the face of their own ignorance? please he believes he can win. i know this. he believes he is not afraid of anybody. >> is that a kamikaze mission of his? >> it's a political kamikaze mission. he and hillary clinton have disagreed on a lot of the key foreign policy debates inside the obama administration. on afghanistan, he was much more reluctant to send u.s. troops. she's more hawkish at this point than he is. that would be useful debate for the democratic party to have. >> romney and jeb bush are getting together in a meeting? what? what's happening? >> it's been reported the meeting was set up before romney decided to tell donors that he's
considering a run actively and apparently the meeting is still on. so you know it could be a, sit down at the table, does this make sense for both of us to get in the race what do we bring to the republican party? do we both want to do this again. i highly doubt that jeb bush is going to persuade mitt romney not to run or vice-versa. >> what a novel thing for these guys to have this conversation. >> i hate this so much. what's essentially happening is the voters are supposed to make decisions about which who people nominate and who we elect president. what we have now, this entire process has been basically donor-selection. and now the candidates going to come together and say you know you managed to wrap up more donors than me so i'll pull out. this is not the way a democratic process is supposed to work. >> that's assuming they're going to make a deal i highly doubt that. if mitt romney wants to run again, he's going to run again. >> all the evidence i don't think he's going to run, because i don't think he has the donor support.
go to be a fly on the wall would be great. we'll see what happens, peter bynart margaret hoover thanks so much. >> i do love the point that money is running the game right now. here's our next story, for this family it's the last shot at justice. we have new details about the civil rights investigation into michael brown's death. do federal investigators have enough to charge darren wilson with violating brown's rights? it's always been a very high bar. but we'll tell you the latest. hello... i'm an idaho potato farmer and our big idaho potato truck is still missing.
so my buddy here is going to help me find it. here we go. woo who, woah, woah, woah. it's out there somewhere spreading the word about americas favorite potatoes: heart healthy idaho potatoes and the american heart association's go red for women campaign. if you see it i hope you'll let us know. always look for the grown in idaho seal. recently, a 1954 mercedes-benz grand prix race car made history when it sold for a record price of just under $30 million. and now, another mercedes-benz makes history selling at just over $30,000.
the a development out of ferguson missouri this morning. the fbi wrapping up its investigation of the michael brown shooting. will former ferguson police officer darren wilson be charged with violating michael brown's civil rights? let's gen get to cnn's sarah sidner what have we learned, sarah? >> you know the fbi we're told has completed its investigation into that part of whether or not civil rights violations occurred when it comes to the shooting death of unarmed teenager michael brown, at the hands of police officer darren wilson. and we're told by our sources, both a law enforcement source
and also a u.s. official and basically they have said there's not enough evidence to charge wilson with any kind of civil rights violations. we have not seen the completed report the report has not been fully completed. and ultimately the decision is up to the attorney general. we are also hearing about the separate investigation. because there are two. the separate investigation into the practices of the ferguson police department itself. that investigation is still ongoing. but when it comes to officer wilson and the shooting death of michael brown. it looks like not only will he not face criminal charges because a grand jury decided he should not face criminal charges and did not indict him. but he will not face federal charges. so basically he's out of the woods when it comes to being charged. either by the feds or by the state. >> and sarah, i was going to ask you, if there had been any response in ferguson to this
news? >> yeah i mean we've talked to some of the protesters. officials have kind of stepped back and said until we seat seay this put down on paper from officials from the justice department we are not going to make any kind of comment. we also heard from benjamin crump, the attorney for michael brown's parents, he had said i'm not going to speculate until i see it and hear it myself. but certainly the protesters here are disappointed. they have been out still, they are still protesting not every single night. but they're still out doing actions, so there's quite a bit of disappointment on their part. alisyn? >> thanks, sarah. let's look at the headlines, 34 minutes past the hour. the fate of two japanese men held captive by isis is hanging in the balance if tokyo does not pay the $200 million ransom the extremists are threatening to kill these men in less than 24 hours. japan is furiously working to get in touch with isis. all of this as a team of diplomats including u.s. secretary of state john kerry, meet in london to discuss ways
to combat isis. in yemen, the government and rebels appear to have a deal in place to stave off a coup that's been threatening to destabilize that country. the rebels will withdraw from key government buildings. the government will rewrite parts of yemen's constitution. the u.s. has yet to evacuate its embassy in yemen's capital. back at home an abrupt about-face by house republicans, dropping plans to debate a bill that would ban virtually all abortions after 20 weeks. objections from female lawmakers and others left the gop short of votes to pass it. this comes as thousands of anti-abortion activists are scheduled to march in washington, d.c. today to mark the anniversary of the supreme court's decision to legalize abortion. chilling new video this morning of a deadly shooting a police shooting captured on dash cam in bridgeton, new jersey officers pulled over a jaguar for running a stop sign. one officer yells to his partner
he saw a gun in the glove compartment, those officers tell the passenger to stop reaching for something. reed suddenly steps out of the car with his hands raised. at his shoulders, and that's when shots ring out. >> he's reaching he's reaching. show me your hands. no you're not, don't move don't shoot. >> don't shoot. don't you move. >> reed was killed by the officers. that shooting is now being investigated by county prosecutors. >> oh my gosh. that is sickening to just watch. that just shows how dangerous police officers' jobs are every night and how dangerous it is. >> and how things apparently the stop started friendly enough. >> he was told not to get out of the car. told not to move his hands, there was a gun found in the
car, he has shot at cops before this guy. they didn't know any of that when they're going through the movements. but again -- these situations they can always look one of two ways -- the guy was told not to move. he got out of the car and approached the officer. >> i wonder why he did that. >> we'll never know. so the big game is just ten days away. what's all the buzz about? deflate-gate. how much does it really matter? does it deserve punishment? if so what should the punishment be? and we'll tell but the hash tag tweeted round the world. >>hump day! hummmp daaay! it's hump day! >>yeah! >>hey mike! mike mike mike mike mike! >>mike mike mike mike mike. hey! he knows! hey! guess what day it is! hey! camel! guess what day it is! >>it's not even wednesday. let it go, phil. if you're a camel, you put up with this all the time. it's what you do.

secretary of state jk jk and his counterparts from 20 nations are meeting in london about isis. the nation's leaders stand united against the terror threat. what can they actually do to change what we're dealing with? here to discuss it is sir peter westcott the british ambassador to the united states. let's get to the issue of the meeting, which is isis. we know part of the surge is taking place in your country, for jihadi john. seen in the video threatening
the lives of the two japanese hostages. any words on his whereabouts or connections to others? >> good morning, thank you for having me. at the moment there's nothing that i can say about the search for jihadi john. we've put a lot of resource into this it's an investigation which is continuing and i hope you'll understand while that is the case it isn't something on which i can comment publicly. >> you believe you do know the identity of him and they're making inroads. also what's happening with japan? do you fear in your country because of the losses you've suffered at the hands of these murderers, that you may be asked for a ransom demand? and if you were what would be your country's decision? >> this issue has come up. we've had british subjects unfortunately tragically beheaded and i'm sorry there seem to be british subjects involved in the beheading. we do not pay hostage ransoms.
we believe that if you do give these terrorists money, it encourages them to take more hostages and it also provides large sums of money to finance their terrorist activities. so we don't do that. >> we'll have to wait to see what the fruit of the meetings are today. the supposition is that it's about how to better coordinate the war against isis and largely on a military front. what are your thoughts about how the military aspect won't be the key to defeating the idea of radicalization? what else needs to be done? >> chris, we think that there's been quite good progress made on the military front there have been air strikes taking place inside iraq and you inside syria, against isil. the united kingdom has been the second most important in the airstrikes against the terrorist groups. i think we have probably stopped the advance, we need to work militarily on rooting them back. it's about cutting off the financing and dealing with the threat to all oufr homeland
securities from the foreign fighters supporting the new, more inclusive government of iraq and helping them to get the job right and engage with the local partners. this is is not something that needs to be solved entirely by people from the other side of the world. dealing with the financing and pushing back the military. we're making some progress in that area. >> the military has two sides to it right? it enhances recruitment. it plays on the extremist's narrative that they're vimts of the rest of the world. so there's an up and down on the measuring of the success. when you get to the other issue, the narrative of why this is happening, why radicalization is spreading, there will be members in attendance at this meeting today that are some of the sovereign states that oppress their own people. and create extreme poverty and allow extremism to take root and sometimes fund it. what do do you in terms of shifting responsibility on to those nations? >> this is part of the agenda.
that's why we've got 22 different governments all of which have an interest in trying to deal with this brutal appalling poisonous ideology and the horrible things they're doing to their people. you're right this has to be dealt with in terms of the breeding ground that allows people to think that this is somehow what islam dictates or require requires. and it's also something you've got to address in terms of the broader socioeconomic and government conditions in which people have been brought up. the reality is there are hundreds, in some cases thousands of people who have joined isil from our own countries, they have been born and brought up and educated and given decent jobs and got families and prosperity in our own countries and still take part in this dreadful terrorist activity. so we have to try to deal with our communities, we have to try to deal with the leaders of islam, we have to try to discourage families from letting their people go out to this region and stop them from coming
back radicalized with an intention to wreak slaughter within our own countries so this is a complex series of objectives, but part of it is indeed trying to insure there are is good governance and economic prosperity and something which encourages people to believe in their own government and in their own country. rather than to try to destroy everything around them. >> well said sir peter, but very tough to achieve. the ambassador to the u.s. from the uk thank you for joining us on new day, sir. we'll change directions here. ten days until super bowl xlix. where's all the hype where's all the excitement? it's all about deflate-gate that controversy is not going away. we'll talk about it all with espn's mike greenberg, next. ur nose suddenly, you're a mouth breather. a mouth breather! well, put on a breathe right strip and shut your mouth. cold medicines open your nose over time, but add a breathe right strip and pow, it opens your nose up to 38% more. so you can breathe and do the one thing you want to do sleep.

gonna lean up an kiss bet. peas charty get town down. [laughter] ♪ borf a liver tute face stummy wag ♪ pow pam sha-beeps stella nerf berms. saxa-nay nay? badumps a head. temexiss gurrin. juppa left. fluppa jown! brone a brood. what? catch up on what everyone's talking about with the x1 entertainment operating system. preloaded with the latest episodes of the top 100 shows. only from xfinity. yeah, there's the music, we're ten days and counting until super bowl xlix and all the talk is about footballs, instead of the game of the football. specifically accusations that the new england used deflated footballs in their win against the colts. the patriots have set to face
off against seattle for the super bowl. >> how significant is it if the patriots are found to have participated in cheating the rules? >> i don't know all of that answer right now. but and i don't know about the circumstances. so it would be crazy for me to comment on it. but we're trying to do things right, we want to do things the right way. i'm sure that that pervades the league and all of that. we'll see what happens with that. i don't have a big comment about that. >> joining us to discuss the latest is mike greenberg, co-host of mike & mike on espn radio. his new novel is out now. what a shame, i was thinking of the fact that we're ten days to the super bowl there should be hype and excitement and we're talking about deflated balls. >> well and that's obviously something that a 12-year-old boy in all of us has a very difficult time saying with a straight face here's the really unbelievable thing, could you imagine a circumstance where the nfl completes an investigation
in short order. determines that the coach of the patriots willfully and knowingly violated competitive rules and decides to suspend bill belichick for the super bowl? do i think there's any real chance that will happen? i do not. but i suppose it is not beyond the realm of possibility. and if it happened it would be within the framework of sports probably the biggest story of all time. >> because of the stuff we do at cnn, this is relatively low on our priority list, i'm not letting go of the 12-year-old boy thing just yet. i want to talk about the hash tag you started on your show with mike the other day. that wound up making it not only number one in the u.s. but number one worldwide. tell us what that hash tag was and how much you enjoyed it as an achievement. >> well all of us who consider ourselves "seinfeld"ians at heart would be proud to know that i had the #shrinkage trending all over the world it seemed like an appropriate term
under the circumstances. the balls, they shrink at least a little bit. we any what that's about. all kidding aside. you can call it whatever you want. at the end of the day, i don't think that this is the reason the patriots are successful. but at the same time they wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't helping. they're not doing it for their health. so there's something nefarious going on here. i think ultimately it does become at least a little bit of a black mark on the all-time resumé of a guy in bill belichick who may otherwise be considered the greatest coach awful time. >> did balls were checked before the game. two hours 15 minutes as we've read before the game and they were found to be fine. then at halftime the pats' balls were found to be deflated. so how is that not -- >> and that's happened to a lot of teams at halftime over the years. >> i'm inviting it. how is that not cheating? >> okay it is cheating.
there's no way that it isn't cheating. the question is just how significant the cheating is. can they prove that someone did it on purpose? can they prove they did it to gain a competitive advantage? and how soon can they do so? there's no question there will be some punishment some discipline involved here. the question is can they do it quickly enough that it will actually have some impact on the super bowl? if not, they'll do something more commonplace like dock the team a draft pick which is meaningful but not nearly as significant. if they were to do something that directly involved the super bowl that would be to my knowledge unprecedented and obviously a much bigger story. >> indulge alisyn and i being football widows our better halves spend sunday and the rest of the week indulging in the great sport of football. to me it seems like there's a quick fix here why not just have the league take care of the balls the same way they do in the major league baseball world. the umpires are in charge of the balls, there's no room for well
little room one would argue, for cheating. >> you're exactly right and it just makes too much sense for them to have done it all these years. it's the only explanation i have for you. any other right in any other sport, tennis basketball baseball the teams themselves don't get control of the equipment they're going to use to play the game ahead of time. particularly when there are these very strict regulations. less no way in the world teams are going to be able to excuse me language there's no way teams are going to be able to handle their own balls before going forward. you can't do it. >> to put some nails in the coffin of whether or not this mattered. the game was close at the half okay. they killed them in the second half. after the balls had been checked and presumably unless you know differently, reinflated. and you have said you don't think the difference in square-inch poundage would have made a difference. although you and i have both heard men who have thrown balls
in the nfl and caught them say they think it would make a difference what's your take in all that? >> yes, it makes a difference there's no question it makes a difference. as i said before they're not doing it for fun, they're doing it because they think it's helping them. that said if the game had been 45-44, or 8-7, i would have been a whole lot more interested in the conversation as it pertained to that particular game than when it was 45-7. that said the rules are the rules, if they're breaking them they deserve whatever it is they have come canning to them. >> do you think this is an asterisk by his name in the history books of the nfl? >> no question. one of the things we're debating on our show is whether or not it's going to keep him out of the hall of fame or whether it's going to keep him from going into the hall of fame the first year that he's eligible. i think it's a very legitimate question. >> tell us about "my father's wives" your new book. >> i've been digging through it. >> it's my new novel, it's about fathers and sons which is a
topic that's very important, particularly amongst those of us who grew up with a dad who led them into sports. my dad is 82. i still talk to him every single day. in very brief fashion, it's about a guy whose life is falling apart. he feels he needs to rediscover the father he hasn't known since he was nine years old and he goes on a journey to try to do that that's what the book is about, it's called "my father's wives." >> mike greenberg, congratulations on the book we'll talk with you again very soon. a whole lot of nous get to this morning. let's get to it. time running out for two hostages held by isis. >> i'm with you and everybody is with you. >> japan is trying to open a line of communication with isis. >> don't give up. i know you are not giving up. crisis in yemen that could derail the war on terror. >> our personnel are well protected. >> i think we ought to get our people out. >> i think we're going to see a state where there is no central
government. segments of the russian missiles which are hitting my people. >> russia continues to move tanks, armored vehicles. >> because of putin we are so strong so united and nobody can stop us. >> this is new day. with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. good morning, everyone welcome back to "new day," down to the wire if japan does not pay a $200 million ransom in just hours, isis could kill two of its citizens. the japanese government is working furiously to establish contact with the terrorists. but so far at this hour, no luck. >> japan's prime minister making it clear he will not give in to the terrorists' demands, this morning, 21 foreign ministers, including secretary of state john kerry are in london. to meet about how to wipe the terror group off the map. and that is going to be harder to do than was first expected. we have all angles covered. let's get to will ripley live in tokyo. any contact made yet with isis by the authorities there?
>> still no contact in spite of a now-public plea on the part of japanese officials in tokyo and also reaching out. they've reached out to jordan and turkey. they're trying to establish a line of communication and they have not been able to talk to isis. two names on the top of everybody's minds here kenji goto and hurati yugawa facing a deadline 18 hours away 18 hours before isis threatens to murder these innocent men who they captured last year. the question also on a lot of people's minds, will japan pay a ransom? is japan willing to negotiate and to hand over money to the terror group isis? people are torn here chris. because in one school of thought, if you give money, even if it's a smaller sum than $200 million, if you're giving millions of dollars to a terror group, does that just give them more tools, more ammunition to hurst more people? but on the other hand there are a lot of people in this pacifist
country who want to see these two men come home safely. none of that can happen if there's not a line of communication open. that's not been able to be accomplished yet, chris. >> you're asking all the right questions, so difficult to answer. this isn't the first time isis has demanded millions for a hostage. just last august the terror group wanted 100 million euros, about $132 million before killing american journalist james foley. are their demands signaling financial desperation? or is this just about showing their power? let's go to barbara starr, joining us from the pentagon with more on the reign of terror we're seeing. >> from the u.s. point of view it is all about the reign of terror. no indication isis is running out of money. right now the feeling is they are engaging in these acts continuing to do it putting it up on social media it's a recruiting tool for them. hard to believe, but it is. and to terrorize the people already under their control.
tens of thousands of people in iraq and afghanistan -- pardon me in iraq and syria, under isis control. isis has gained more territory in those two countries in recent months. but the question u.s. officials are asking themselves is can isis hold on to the territory? are they having to show reign of terror more and more to keep people terrorized because they're having trouble holding onto it providing governance providing the services that they have promised? the u.s. increasingly concerned about seeing these foreign fighters pop up in other countries like yemen, like afghanistan, claiming at least to be part of isis. that is isis exporting terror. michaela? >> barbara, thank you. now to yemen where a deal to end an attempted coup appears to be in jeopardy. the government agreed to rewrite part of its constitution in order to get rebels out of of government buildings there. however, mistrust is standing in the way. both sides are waiting for the
other to take action first. so will the deal go through? cnn senior international correspondent nick paton walsh is in yemen. >> there was a political breakthrough last night it appeared the government was willing to take a lot of political concessions to get the houthis out of key buildings and get their chief of staff back. the timeline was going to be tricky. you could imagine there was going to be mistrust. the presidential chief of staff have yet to be released and the houthis are keeping in the words of one of them, about 20% of their people in buildings. this country still far from out of the crisis yet. >> this morning, it's still unclear who is in charge of one of the u.s.'s key counterterrorism allies. creating a new national security concern for the u.s. these men, houthi rebels are said to be pulling back but the president, whose home they've
been surrounding, a key u.s. backer against al qaeda, is he still calling the shots? elected president abed mansour hadi and rebel leader jockey for power. presidential buildings, including the palace overrun by houthi rebels. just yesterday, the two sides reached a deal granting the rebels more political power. in exchange for withdrawing their militias. but the tentative agreement -- just that tentative. the houthis are a target for aqap. but still, list death to america among their slogans. the ongoing political turmoil in the midst of a war on terror strikes fear in the hearts of u.s. officials. >> we're going to see a state where there is no central government to speak of. which means that al qaeda will have an even stronger base. >> some u.s. officials say it's too dangerous for the hundreds
of americans inside the u.s. embassy. >> i think we ought to get our people out. i don't want to see a hostage situation. >> now the key concern is how much control does president hadi have? he's clearly accepted a lot of concessions with the new constitution. and the effectively many say, if he doesn't like how the deal is playing out with the houthis, there's not much that the government can do about it. is he simply a figurehead or will he retain some element of control? vital for u.s. interests. it's this yemeni government that are the ally not the houthis, who list death to america among their slogans. what hangs in the balance is the fight against al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. forget about isis they are the key threat to the united states emanating from yemen. it's a very troubling issue for u.s. policy. >> so who is in charge this morning in yemen? why does it matter to the u.s.? joining us is bobby ghosh, cnn
global affairs analyst and managing editor of "quartz" let's remind people of where yemen is on the map. it is down at the bottom of this peninsula. bobby, why is yemen so significant to the u.s.? >> well it's significant because aqap the group that took credit for what happened in france most recently but has a long history of trying to attack the rest is based in yemen. and it's eastern parts of the country, where it has almost free run. it's a pretty wild part of the country. desert. difficult to patrol difficult to police. and yemen is deeply poor and can't afford to police and patrol all of its territory. so that's why it's crucial and it is where the u.s. has called the attack one of the early successes, if you like of al qaeda. so yemen has been in important to the united states for a long time. >> we're looking at the map of its neighbors and why this is such a critical region. you see it is bordered by saudi
arabia then iraq syria. iran afghanistan. and colonel reece, the reason that it's important to figure out what's going on in yemen, is because if no one's in charge there's a power vacuum. then we no there are terrorist groups as bobby said that have taken root in the region there are many aqap in yemen. there's isis there's al newsusranusra. there's the taliban and al qaeda in afghanistan. what's your assessment of what's happening there? >> the arabian peninsula a very sunni-dominant peninsula and it's considered saudi arabia is the true caliphate for the islamic world on the sunni side. so when you have all these areas you have these areas that al qaeda, aqap whatever part of that they have safe havens and they can train and that's the worst thing we can do is allow these people to come in train, go back to europe and do strikes. we try to take the safe havens
away. >> what's happening right now? are the houthis in negotiation with the president of millenniumen? >> the houthis are a shiite group from the north of the country. they've made a deal. >> what do they want? >> they want more and more power. they want more autonomy from the central government and every time they've had more concessions, they said they want more. i'm not terribly optimistic that the current deal is going to hold. the crucial problem here is that the government of president hadi they need to be working towards making yemen less hostable to groups like al qaeda. the way to do is to provide better governance better economic management and to take action against aqap. none of those things are going to happen while hadi is going to fight for survival against the houthis, so directly and indirectly the houthi ascendency helps al qaeda. >> aqap, isis al nusra, the
taliban, are these groups in cahoots with each other or rivals of each other. >> the bottom line is they have an ideological aspect that they all believe in. aqap i don't buy that isis now is coming in to the arabian peninsula and trying to start -- i don't buy that. >> you don't buy the rivalry stories. >> i guess your point is what does it matter, their whole purpose, their mission statement is to destroy the western way of life. >> at the foot soldier level, they don't care. lead remembers leaders, they'll bump heads in politics and the propaganda piece, but at the foot soldier level, they don't care and i don't see that aspect -- >> what is the u.s. supposed to do about what's going on in yemen? >> we have to make a decision and we have to make a decision quickly. i agree with bobby. i do not believe that this cease-fire whatever you want to call it right now will hold and then it will continue to escalate. and what we don't want to do is what we call a forced entry
mission or have to fight our way into yemen to pull everyone out of the embassy. that becomes a very difficult mission. and like the commander said in the last segment, that's when you get collateral damage and if just gets ugly. if we're going to make a decision let's get in there now, pull them out. sit on the carriers and wait until see what happens. >> bobby, why are we taking this wait-and-see attitude? >> i think we're being advised by people inside the embassy, they have eyes on the ground they know what's going on. so presumably they feel a degree of safety that i don't. we agree with james, that an abundance of caution is due here. we shouldn't only be thinking about protecting the embassy. there's a larger yemeni populace this is a long-time ally. and these different groups you're showing on the maps, they hate the west. but more than anything else they hate modernity in all its aspects and they hate modern arabs, modern muslims more than they hate the west. the biggest target are muslims
themselves hundreds thousands of yemenis have died in the fight against aqap. we do owe them a certain responsibility. >> so bobby, what's the answer? >> the answer is to try to get stability very quickly. to get to the, to grips with this houthi ascendency. make sure that this deal how old. and that will take not just the united states it will take the arab states the united nations. lots of people are working on it. whole you know we can cling to the hope that it works. you know hope for the best but prepare for the worst. >> bobby ghosh, colonel reece, thanks for the information. al qaeda in the arabian peninsula who claimed responsibility for the "charlie hebdo" attack issuing a new warning. the leader of aqap is urging would-be jihadis to wage war at home instead of traveling overseas. in a just-released tape he says any person capable of waging individual jihad in western countries fighting islam, including america, is quote better and more harmful. it appears no federal
charges will be filed against former ferguson police officer darren wilson in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager michael brown. sources tell cnn the fbi civil rights investigation found insufficient evidence to charge wilson. and of course a local grand jury you'll remember decided not to indict him. prince andrew is expected to deny having sex with a teenaged girl when he addresses the world economic forum in switzerland this afternoon. the duke of york's accuser is now 31 years old. she's named virginia roberts, she claims she was held as a teenaged sex slave by financier jepry epstein when the prince had sex with her on three different occasions in 2001. interesting place to make a statement. davos, financial forum, right? >> yes. he could just ignore it. i guess. >> which is generally what the palace does. >> except you know what's the problem in these situations? if they're true you need access
to the people who are suspected and you have to find some measure of justice. if they're not true how do you unring the bell this is man who believes that his integrity is paramount. what does he do if he thinks it's not true. >> they say sometimes talking about it fans the flames it's a tough one. well the fighting has intenseifyied in eastern ukraine as the government says thousands of russian troops are in the country. should the u.s. step in there? we're talking to the u.s. ambassador to the ukraine. hillary clinton back in the spotlight for the first time in a month. and she is sounding a lot like somebody who is running for president, you judge for yourself. john king will tell what you she said on "new day's" "inside politics." if you have copd, ask your doctor about once-daily anoro ellipta. it helps people with copd breathe better for a full 24hours. anoro ellipta is the first fda-approved product containing two long-acting bronchodilators in one inhaler.

is the situation in ukraine has taken a real turn for the worse in just the last 24 hours. ukraine's president says there are 9,000 russian troops occupying the nation's territory. the russians say they're just trying to keep the peace. look at the results -- overnight several people killed by shelling at a bus station in the donetsk region. that's the city in the eastern part of the country that's been the focus of hostilities. ukraine's state tv says rebel separatists are targeting civilian areas. let's get the latest on the situation from the u.s. ambassador to ukraine, jeffrey pyatt, joining us from kiev thank you for joining us on "new day." >> good morning, chris. >> ambassador do you believe the president's report that some 8,000, or 9,000 russian troops not just sympathizers but troops are on the ground in donetsk and basically making war there? >> well chris, there's no doubt in our mind that russia russian
forces continue to train and equip and to fight with the ukrainian separatists. there continues to be a large flow of russian heavy equipment, missiles tanks, other military gear flowing into ukrainian territory. there are active combat operations under way today. including around donetsk city but also north of hansk city. tragically we have reports this morning of perhaps as many as 13 innocent civilians killed in a missile strike that hit a trolley bus of people trying to go about their lives this morning in donetsk city. >> we were there this summer. we're told from the ground that the situation is much worse. that it is getting close to unlivable. and i want to know from you, what does that suggest in terms of what needs to be done by the u.s. and other allies?
and what do you think russia's goal is in this situation? >> well the first thing that needs to happen chris, is that russia needs to come into compliance with the minsk framework, the minsk agreement which russia signed on to at the beginning of september. including the end of all transfers of military heavy equipment across the border. restore ukrainian sovereignty across that border. insure the release of all prisoners and p.o.w.s, there's awful images today of a ukrainian p.o.w. being marched around the streets in donetsk. we want to see the removal of all, i repeat all russian military equipment and fighters. and of course the imposition of a verified cease-fire. the key to the solution to this terrible terrible crisis lies in the implementation of the minsk agreement, and that's going to include a change in tack by the russian government. >> it seems by all indications
that vladimir putin is laughing at the minsk agreement and all of the western allies who are part of it. look even our own, even the united states own diplomat the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. sam powers said on twitter time and again, putin has extended an olive branch in one hand while passing out missiles and tanks with the other. it's time to pull the veil away from putin's peace plan and call it what it is a russian occupation plan. from ambassador samantha power. if that's the reality and it seems by all indications that it is shouldn't more be done than just rely on a minsk compromise that clearly isn't going to be enforced? >> well chris we're going to continue to work with all of our international partners in europe and beyond. to support the ukrainian government. to support the ability of the ukrainian government to defend its own sovereign territory. one important detail that sometimes gets overlooked is the ukrainian people this morning i was talking to probably the most
important businessman in eastern ukraine. someone who has literally hundreds of thousands of ukrainians who work in his enterprises across the donetsk region. he made very clear to me his view that the people of donbas, including the people living in these occupied regions right now don't want to be part of russia they want to be part of ukraine. they want to get their lives back. they want the violence to stop and the key to achieving that lies in the full implementation of the minsk agreement. as ambassador power said we're going to be working to support the full implementation of the minsk framework. in this regard we were encouraged by russia's agreement as part of the meetings that took place last night in berlin to reaffirm what it signed on to at the beginning of september. but now the test is going to be implementation. >> do you believe that the new negotiations about cease-fire will yield any benefit to the people in that region? >> i know, chris, that the people of ukraine and especially
the people of donbas are desperate to see an end to the violence. it's clear to me listening to president poroshenko and the prime minister that they want an end to the violence. president poroshenko made clear yesterday in davos, he wants to be the president of peace, not the president of war. but at this stage, it is russia which is fueling the fire. fueling the flames and it is russia which we look to to implement the obligations which it undertook in order to allow a cessation of hostilities and allow the ukrainian government to reincorporate the people of donbas into the democratic life of this country. >> well we all wish for the best in the situation. but it does seem a little illogical to be depending on russia to enhance or enforce peace, which it seems to be that they are motivating the lack peace, but ambassador pyatt, we look forward to changes, because the situation seems to be getting worse.
thank you for joining us appreciate it. as time ticks down on the isis hostages japan is trying to get them free. what can be done at this hour? we are talking to a top pentagon official. two of the biggest names in the race for the white house, mitt romney and jeb bush meeting face to face for the first time since both saying they're thinking about running. what could they be talking about? we'll ask john king, ahead.

tokyo pays a $200 million ransom to isis. the government in japan scramble to get in touch with the extremists. so far no luck. in the meantime a team of diplomats including u.s. secretary of state john kerry are meeting in london to devise a plan to combat isis. to yemen where mistrust is slowing a deal to end an attempted coup. the government agreed to reforms to bring an end to a siege by rebels. both sides are hesitant to keep their end of the bargain until the other side takes action. the nation's president insists he remains in charge. the u.s. is yet to evacuate its embassy in yemen's capital. at home officials in newtown, connecticut voting to demolish the house where sandy hook shooter, adam lanza lived. he shot and killed his mother inside the home before heading to nearby sandy hook elementary where he gunned down 20 children and six teachers before committing suicide. city council members told us the
home will be torn down as soon as is practical. some fishermen getting quite the surprise when they spotted a great white shark circling their boat about nine miles out in the gulf of mexico. scott fitzgerald said the great white was attacking the motor of his boat. he said he tried a couple of times to shake the motor out of the shark's mouth. but it kept coming back for more. when the shark attacked the motor for the third time fitzgerald said enough and left the area. i have a theory about this. >> what is it? >> i think the shark was hung over and the noise of the engine was bothering him, he was like yo just turn it off and -- right? >> that seems scientific. >> solid as it is i do believe the engine was off while the shark was circling and maybe, just maybe a better theory is that the shark knew they were fishing, there was a lot of bait in the water and this thing was hanging below the surface, it was shiny, so it bit it. >> so you're the fishermen and i'm the news anchor.
>> and if i'm seeing that thing, the engine will be on and we'll be out of there. one time john king as you know leads us "inside politics" actually jumped in the water in a situation like that outside of boston grabbed the shark, got it in a headlock asked it to answer some severe questioning, once it did, he released it and jumped back in the boat. >> all coming up on "shark week." big documentary. i swam with sharks once but not that kind. >> you swim with them every day down there, my brother. >> i'll send you the photo. like throwing you over my shoulder. we got a busy day, let's go "inside politics," a remarkable timing this morning. with me to share the reporting and insights julia pace of the "associated press" and ron fournier of the "national journal," if you're on the 7:30 a.m. just about to leave washington national airport off to salt lake city you're having a live glimpse of washington politics. jonathan martin of the "new york
times" broke the news, jeb bush is on the flight heading to ut tout meet mitt romney. jeb bush wanted to say i'm going to run for the republican nomination do you have any advice? now romney says he wants to run again. so it's an interesting meeting. and "the wall street journal" was there and saw governor bush at the airport. now that romney is in it was requested before romney sent the signals he was in. now that he's in, how awkward is this? the only way they don't run against each other, somebody says you're the better man, i'm out. not going do happen. >> it's fascinating, i think j-mart's story is perfect, the meeting was set to have jeb show respect to the party's 2016 nominee. does it end up being two guys saying i'm going to run, i'm going to run and they fight it out? or do they come to some agreement for the good of the party. it seems unlikely at this point
given their signals. but i think coming out of this we'll get a sense of whether it's going to be a wing of the party that's divided or united going forward. >> and governor bush did this with john mccain a few weeks back too, he's done this with other senior party leaders, essentially, give me your advice i want to pay tribute to your service to the party. now what? will they arms were wrestle? >> even at this high level politic it is comes down to what happens when two people get in the room together and there are cases where politicians have not necessarily cut a deal, but made an arrangement. let's make sure we're working together not against each other. i don't think it's going to happen here. i wouldn't be surprised if one or both of these men come out of the meeting with a different thinking about how they're going to run or whether they're going to run. my guess is at the end of the day, mitt romney does not run. >> as cautious and as deliberate as he is and as careful as he is i took it early on that he was not going to run. but when he came 0 out publicly
and said go tell your friends now he's making calls to fundraisers and staffers. >> i think he can still pull back and my guess is he does. >> someone who made clear yesterday increasingly she's not pulling back is hillary clinton. the former secretary of state north of the border for a speaking engagement in canada. the day after the president's state of the union address. president obama lays out an aggressive agenda that the republicans don't like. the president says it will help the middle class. republicans often say hillary clinton would be the third obama term. well listen here. >> last night president obama offered a vision for helping the middle class in the united states. reclaim its seat at the table. and the proposals he offered are important start for a critical debate. there's so much more to do to bring security and possibility to families struggling with
stagnant wages and sinking hopes. to restore commity and cooperation to our politics to reform our broken immigration system. to restitch the fraying fabric of american life. >> now, i've lost track of how many electoral votes that winnipeg gets in presidential elections. but clearly she was out of the public eye for more than a month. she's been working on this and she's clearly decided i like the president's plan i'm not afraid to stand with him. >> i think what's interesting about what the president did in the state of the union, if you look at the democratic message on the economy for much of his presidency it's been a bit jumbled and particularly in the lead-up to the mid-term elections, they couldn't settle on a message. he took the stage at the state of the union and said here is not only my economic philosophy but the democratic party's philosophy. he's handing it over to the party, handing it over to hillary clinton saying run on
this. it worked for me twice, it can work for you, too. i think if she can be with him on the economy, it opens up opportunities to move away from him on foreign policy. >> i think he's doing very much of what tr did at the beginning of the last century. set the stage for the last 20 years. hillary, there is some distance. if you look at the tweet she put out at the state of the union address, she said president obama was he is embraceing the economy. now he talks a good game i'm going to deliver. the middle class hasn't done any better under president obama i'm going to deliver. >> it's a hug and a little bit of a push all at the same time. and then there was this -- yesterday on abc news joe biden talking about the state of the union address. he was asked about 2016 and -- >> yes. there's a chance. but i haven't made my mind up about that we've got a lot of work to do between now and then. there's plenty of time. >> you were just making the
question, if jeb runs does romney also run. if hillary runs does biden also run? he says it's possible. >> it's like the old joke. so you say there's a chance? i think he should run. think it would be good for the party. i think it would be good for hillary clinton to have some competition. i think biden deserves the chance. i think he's qualified to be president. i don't see why he shouldn't and doesn't get in. >> there aren't a lot of actual signs behind biden saying that he's moving towards a run. if you look at what all the other candidates are doing. they're bringing staff in starting superpacs, he's just not building the kind of apparatus that makes you think he's really serious about this. >> it's different because he's been vice president. but the same question as governor romney do you want to lose a third time? he's run twice before. benjamin netenyahu does not have a great relationship with president obama. president obama made his case in the state of the union that congress should not enact any additional sanctions right now or even the threat of additional sanctions during the nuclear
negotiations with iran. republicans responded, speaker john boehner says let's invite benjamin netenyahu to speak before both chambers of congress to rebut the president. listen. >> i did not consult with the white house. the congress can make this decision on its own. i don't believe i'm poking anyone in the eye. there is a serious threat that exists in the world. and the president last night kind of papered over it. >> he is poking the president of the united states in the eye. so is the prime minister for that matter for deciding to do this. prime minister netenyahu who wants to make the case up the sanctions, don't give any ground to iran. this is a remarkable moment. >> it's incredible the white house was not happy yesterday with netenyahu or with boehner for doing this. interesting to note netenyahu has elections coming up. there's israeli politics in the mix. >> there's a good reason why politics is supposed to stop at the water's edge. i think republicans forget that they have the white house again
and they would not want this done to them. >> february 11th is the joint address by benjamin netenyahu. republicans getting involved. and alisyn as we get back to you, seth myers thinking about the possibility of the joe biden 2016 campaign and he thinks this -- >> vice president biden said this morning that he thinks he can do a good job as president. he thinks he can do a good job as president. and if that doesn't work out, he would like to be an astronaut or a fireman. fourth choice cowboy, but ideally one of the first three. >> that's -- >> that's being joe biden is every now and then you got to take that. >> i guess so that's great. i love that you give us these little humor nuggets to send us off on our next hour john. thanks so much. there's a tentative deal to reach a truce in yemen. it appears, however, at this hour to be crumbling.
i've been called a control freak... i like to think of myself as more of a control... enthusiast. mmm, a perfect 177-degrees. and that's why this road warrior rents from national. i can bypass the counter and go straight to my car. and i don't have to talk to any humans, unless i want to. and i don't. and national lets me choose any car in the aisle. control. it's so, what's the word?... sexy. go national. go like a pro.
at this hour japan fighting against time to try to free two hostages held by isis. we want to bring in rear admiral john kirby, who joins us live from the pentagon. and admiral kirby, thanks so much for being on "new day." is there any assistance that the u.s. can give japan to free the hostages? >> we're working closely with japan, having gone through this ourselves and trying to help them as best we can. certainly at least in the realm of trying to share some information. i wouldn't get into any speculation about anything beyond that at this point. but obviously japan is a close ally and friend and we're going to continue to look for ways to help them in any way we can.
>> as you've just said the u.s. found itself in this same sickening situation. and when it happened to the u.s. isis beheaded the hostages. the americans, steven sotloff, peter casing james foley. is there anything that japan can do to produce a different outcome, do you think? >> this is a very brutal group and they're also somewhat unpredictable and it makes them all the more dangerous. i wouldn't speculate right now about things that can or should be done or would be done. we want to respect the decisions of japanese authorities to make on their own. what i'll tell you is that this is this is a group when they threaten individuals like that tough take those threats seriously. and you have to you have to stay on top of it and try to gather and as much information as you can. but again, i wouldn't get ahead of decisions that the japanese government haven't made yet. all i'll say is that very close friend and ally were going to continue to look for ways to
help them in any way possible. >> isis gave japan just 72 hours to come up with $200 million of ransom that isis is demanding. what does that tell you? >> well there's motivation here, by isil to get ransom for these hostages. they've done this before and other nations have paid. this is a decision the japanese government has to make about whether or not they are willing to pay that ransom. as you know it's our policy in the united states not to do so. but again, this is something that the japanese government has to do. >> foreign ministers from 22 countries are in london today along with secretary of state john kerry, trying to discuss how to stop isis. how to combat isis. beyond the coalition air strikes, what else is being considered? >> i think, i wouldn't get ahead of discussions in london here. certainly not from a military perspective, as we've said all along, there's not going to be a purely military solution to this. the real long-term answer to a threat like isil is good
governance good governance in iraq and good governance in syria. in iraq we have a coalition government that's standing up having some strubls but making progress in terms of being representative and inclusive of all iraqis. in syria, the assad regime has lost legitimacy and has ceded large swaths of the country to isil. one of the things that the ministers in london are discussing is how do you get the political solutions that long-term need to be in place to deal with a threat like isil. >> and admiral kirby, i want to move on to yemen and what's going on there. the situation is very precarious. the presidential palace has been taken over by a rebel group. does the pentagon at this hour know who is in charge in yemen? >> we're watching this very very closely, alisyn as you might expect. we do agree the situation is tenuous there in yemen. it seems like both sides are starting to have some discussions, that's a healthy thing. as you said, there continues to
be a very fragile security situation on the ground. and we're watching it very very closely. we have a good relationship with the yemeni government in the realm of counterterrorism. we want the relationship to continue. we're calling on both sides to try to resolve these differences peaceably and without further violence. >> yesterday we had senator angus king on "new day." he made a plea that it was time to get u.s. personnel out of yemen. let me play for you what he said on our air yesterday. >> i don't think we have much control there, i got to be honest i think we ought do get our people out. i don't want to see a hostage situation. >> this morning our global affairs analyst, as well as our military analyst have echoed his sentiments they say better to be safe than sorry. let's get the u.s. personnel out before this goes sideways. are you considering evacuating people today? >> nobody wants to see a hostage situation and certainly nobody wants to see american citizens put at risk. particularly our colleagues in
the state department. they're very mindful of the safety and security of their personnel. and we're working closely with our state department colleagues to watch and monitor the situation and to help them in any way that we can. should that be necessary. but this is ultimately a decision that the state department makes and they're very mindful, i can assure you of the security situation on the ground. >> why not get them out today? why not, be better safe than sorry? >> this again, this is a discussion and a decision that is made at the state department. and that they they watch these situations very closely. what i can tell from you a military perspective, we have forces in the region and nearby particularly at sea, should they be necessary. now, it's typical, though when the state department does want to conduct some sort of evacuation they tend to want to do it through commercial or charter means as a first tool. and we understand that. but we have to be ready and prepared. we are ready and prepared. we've got forces positioned should they be necessary.
and as i said we're working closely with the state department on the requirements that might be necessary should there be an evacuation. >> please keep us alerted as to what's happening there rear admiral john kirby, thank you for coming on "new day." you folks at home if you're married, you have an advantage when it comes to getting fit, staying healthy even kicking a bad habit. my tv husband and wife are all going do break it down with dr. sanjay gupta, there's a new study out, we'll take a look at it. guy. i heard you lost a close one today. look, jamie, maybe we weren't the lowest rate this time. but when you show people their progressive direct rate and our competitors' rates you can't win them all. the important part is, you helped them save. thanks, flo. okay, let's go get you an ice cream cone, champ. with sprinkles? sprinkles are for winners. i understand.
it is time now for cnn money now. chief business correspondent christine romans is here. so senator angus king he said there was a big issue that was being ignored. not here. >> yeah. >> christine, what can you tell us to what's about to happen to overtime pay? >> this is potentially a big story. you heard it from the senator. i wanted to check something he said on the program. higher pay was coming for millions of americans. listen. >> something's going to happen in the next month that nobody's talking about that i think is going to be very significant. the president has the unilateral power to increase the level where overtime clicks in. it's no question he has it.
this isn't the imperial presidency. george bush did it you know ten years ago and that's going to suddenly change the incomes of a lot of middle class people. >> he's right. the president has the power and he's going to use it. he's talking about an effort at the labor department. hourly workers get overtime when they hit 40 hours a week. if your company puts you on a salary you don't qualify for overtime pay unless you make less than $455 a week. that's only $23,000. this changes. it's the law. the obama administration says last march it's working on how to raise it again. the left leaning policy institute, this is what they're lobbying. a threshold of almost 1,000 and $51,000 a year. 6.1 million americans will get a raise if the president gets his way. we're expecting next month we'll hear for sure.
>> that's a huge risk. >> what's the up and down. >> small business leaders say, no we can't pay more. we can't pay more. we're already strapped with affordable care act changes. that's down. it's going to be higher cost for employers. the up side is people have more money, especially paycheck to paycheck people have more money in their pocket. they can spend it. >> christine, thank you very much. >> you're welcome. >> mich. all right. "new day," new you. there may be more to marriage than just love. turns out it could actually help you live a healthier life. a new story finds you are likely to eat better exercise more and ditch the cigarettes if your spouse works with you to kick some of those bad habits. here is our "new day" new you joining us chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta. i would have imagined that this makes sense. strength in numbers, partner in crime, but to the level that it has changed it. you're going to tell us to the level you've changed it. >> you don't have to go it alone. you have somebody to help you.
i think what was interesting about the study is it put some numbers on it. the numbers were pretty high in terms of the added level of success if you have your part ner doing this with you. up to double in certain cases. let me show you some of those numbers. tell you another insight here. take a look as we broke it down by men and women, weight loss success. 10 to 26%. 15 to 36% for women. >> wow. >> keep going there. when you look at exercise overall. you could have a marked impact. >> double two and a half times higher if you do this with your partner. it is hard to break if you and your partner are smokers and you decide to quit the numbers go way up. your spouse is not, you're not likely to have an impact on your
spouse. >> really? >> it's the idea of doing it with your partner in some way. >> drill down a little bit more on the study. it depends on the age. couple. >> you can't teach an old dog new tricks. you have a better chance of changing the habit the younger you are. >> you have this idea. >> i mean the science to this. the professionals, obviously they need you to quit smoking. >> if they have this from a medical problem. >> they have exercise, weight loss.
smoking. >> at the same time as opposed to one. >> increase the likelihood of success. skbl a little bit of healthy competition motivates us. >> you see the devices and couples are wearing the devices. this was done on intimate partners. people who live together. they're obviously very close. could this also extrapolate to communal organizations. weight watchers for example. bud willing people up with others. >> perhaps that makes a difference as well. this idea of fostering the competition, you saw the numbers. >> it's incredible. >> something to consider if you're looking to break a habit at home. >> very nice ty. >> who couldn't like that tie.
sanjay looking good. >> i know one guy that might not because he gave it to me. >> there he is. don't hate it appreciate it. >> good to have you here sanjay. let's get back to the story we are watching closely this morning, that is the fate of two japanese hostages. it is in the hands of isis at this hour. we'll have all the latest for you next. hello... i'm an idaho potato farmer and our big idaho potato truck is still missing. so my buddy here is going to help me find it. here we go. woo who, woah, woah, woah. it's out there somewhere spreading the word about americas favorite potatoes: heart healthy idaho potatoes and the american heart association's go red for women campaign. if you see it i hope you'll let us know. always look for the grown in idaho seal.
>> this is "new day." with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. good morning. welcome to your "new day." thursday january 22nd. just after 8:00 in the east. isis has promised to kill two japanese hostages in just a matter of hours unless the japanese government pays $200 million to them. >> this morning 22 foreign ministers including secretary of state john kerry will meet in london to try to find a plan to destroy isis. we've got all the angles covered for you. let's get to will ripley live in tokyo with the latest. will. >> reporter: alisyn minutes ago
we got off the phone with the prime minister's office and the ministry of foreign affairs, the latest still no information. no line of communication with isis. the deadline. they will communicate with the foreign party. turning to two governments. >> 500 people. they will take part in this crusade. three want to receive $200 million. they are reportedly captured in august and this newly released video shows 47-year-old goto
just hours before his disappearance in late october. the video shows the freelance journalists along the turkey/syria border preparing to cover what he calls the suffering of the syrian people. >> it is my business. >> the two reappearing this week kneeling side by side in orange jump suits in front of a masked isis executioner. >> you have ticks. >> as the deadline looms closer no indication if japan will pay the ransom. the prime minister calling the deadly ultimatum unacceptable. this latest hostage ultimatum coming after isis released videos showing the brutal executions of five western hostages since august. >> reporter: alisyn there is growing fear here in tokyo that two more names could soon be added to that awful list and no answers for the families of the two men who are waiting and wondering if the japanese government will be able to make communication with isis and if they do what will they offer,
what will isis take and what will happen? al list sin? >> will ripley thanks for all of that. >> now to yemen. this morning a government and rebel group appear to be waiting for each other to blink. who is in control of this key u.s. ally cnn's senior international correspond don't nick paton walsh is live in yemen. nick. >> reporter: allyson, on paper president hadi is the president. the houthis dominate on the street. we're waiting to see how they emerged and will make it in that. the houthis are supposed to remove the militants and more importantly release the presidential chief of staff they'll be attending for days now. in exchange the government will allow changes to the new constitution quite substantial ones potentially and give the houthis more power. the houthis say to us they've
withdrawn a part substantial part of the guys from the key buildings. they're keeping it as a guarantee and the president's people say we still haven't got our chief of staff back. so tension here. the key thing being in washington does this really change anything. the president hasn't left his changes. the houthis don't want him gone they want everyone to know they're calling the shots. that seems to be the status quo. how they're implemented in reality, that may be a moot point at this stage. the concerns in washington now had they just lost an ally, now they're dealing with who has no power. >> stepping up security. >> coming in 67,000 u.s. active
duty troops in europe their families civilian colleagues tens of thousands now facing additional security measures. all bases across -- u.s. bases across the european command from the u.k. to turkey will have additional security enhancements random checks more force protection measures we're told. this comes in the wake of the attacks in paris, the arrests in belgium but also we are told growing intelligence about foreign fighters returning to europe. a u.s. official told me a short time ago, and i want to quote, quote, there is evidence of other events in our theater that shows the severity of the terrorist threat out there. they say they are doing this out of prudent abundant caution to protect u.s. military troops but clearly there is growing concern about those foreign fighters returning to europe and posing the threat to u.s. troops. chris. >> barbara starr, thank you very much for bringing us up to date
on this situation. now all of it kind of starts playing into yemen. it is as was said this morning, the fulcrum of the war on terror. so u.s. men and women hang in the balance of what happens there. we have senator bob corker joining us republican from tennessee, and notably the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. senator, thank you for joining us. >> good morning, chris. thank you. >> let's begin with yemen. do you believe it is time to get the u.s. men and women out of there? >> well chris, i haven't been briefed in on the intelligence side. i know as opposed to what happened in benghazi our military personnel are stationed and ready to evacuate. i assume through intelligence we'll decide when that needs to occur. i will say if there's any threat of something happening to them they need to be removed. and so i assume those conversations are underway and all of us want to make sure that none of our foreign based service officers are in harm's
way. i'm going to leave it to those that understand the intelligence make that decision. >> the reason it's a no brainer is because while there probably is based on all circumstances a threat there's a balance here also right? they're useful on the ground? the united states wants to show support to the standing government right now to the extent that it's still standing right? >> there's no question. i will say after what we learned in benghazi i think everyone is going to err on the side of ensuring that there's no way our foreign service officers end up in harm's way. you're right. there is a balance there. >> another flash point is iran. on wednesday you held a hearing on what's going on with the negotiations what should be the next step. in part in reaction to what the president said in the state of the union, i would suggest, so let's listen to what he said on this issue specifically. >> the new sanctions passed by this congress at this moment in time will all but guarantee the
diplomacy fails. alienating america from its allies making it harder to maintain sanctions and ensuring that iran stargts up its nuclear program again. it doesn't make sense. that's why i will veto any sanctions bill that threatens to undo this progress. >> you evidently are saying well that makes no sense. you have legislation that would give congress the ability to approve or reject any nuclear agreement. article 2, section 2 of the constitution says the president has the power to make treaties with 2/3 of the senate confirming that treaty. the state department is saying that isn't a treaty. this is a deal. the president has e quote, executive prerogative to make that deal. do you agree with that? >> chris, i think you're totally misunderstanding what we're attempt to go do in the foreign relations commit tie. congress put these sanctions in place. we're not saying this is a treaty. what we're saying is because we
put these sanctions in place, this is not the bill. what we're doing in the foreign relations committee is not the bill he was referring to in the state of the union. what we're saying is because we have put ourselves in this place, congress rightfully should be able to vote on any final deal before sanctions are relieved. so that is not a threat to article 2. this is actually keeping with congressional mandates and so we believe it's the best back stop to keep them from negotiating a bad deal. that's not what he was referring to. i think this effort is gaining momentum and i think it is exactly the place where congress should be to ensure that the president stays firm and does not negotiate a bad deal with iran that threatens the middle east threatens our country, increases terrorism and i think you're seeing momentum in that direction. >> i know where you're coming
from step for step. what i'm saying is if the president was calling it a treaty maybe then he'd have more room to do it unilaterally but this is not a treaty and that's why congress the senate or both houses wanted to have some influence may well be a very saleable proposition as your legislation's fate will show. >> that's right. that's right. >> i'm with you. i get it. >> i got it. i'm sorry. >> in terms of the tactics of how this is being played out, what do you think of speaker boehner inviting the prime minister of israel to come and address congress when it is very likely in addressing the house he will go against the president of the united states in terms of his policy position? >> well i was with bebe or prime minister netanyahu in israel. i went over to sit down with him and to sit down with massad who's their intelligence agency in closely monitoring these negotiations and my guess is by the time that he comes congress may be in sync as to what it wants to do. so i don't know that he'll be
necessarily going against the president. there's a lot that's occurring, but i do know this he's incredibly concerned about a bad deal with iran very concerned about where these negotiations are going and, chris, what appears to be happening is iran has sort of been here, we started here the p-5, every day that goes by it seems that we move closer and closer to the iran place. that's why congress again, wants to be that firm back stop. i think he supports this to keep the p-5 from going to a place that's really bad for our nation. >> right. while you're assume that go when bebe gets here the parties may be closer together the president and congress they aren't right now. >> that's right. >> the assumption is this is an odd protocol to invite in a foreign leader to contradict your own. >> well look i was made aware of his coming here. we always enjoy seeing the leader of israel. there's a close relationship
between our two countries. >> you think this is the right thing to do senator? >> well, again, it's what is happening. let me just say this there is a lot of water that will go under the bridge between now and the time that he arrives and my guess is we may be at a place where things are aligned in a very good way. that's my goal. >> well that would be the hope but can you imagine more extreme circumstances, yes. if you had president bush getting ready to go to war in iraq and you had the french president invited by the democratic house to come in and say why that was such a bad move how would you have have felt about that? >> well i think -- i think what you've seen happening is the president's been irresponsible in the way that he has dealt with congress and continued to basically act as if it's his way or the highway. i don't know if that's what's driving the leadership in this particular direction, but, look at the end of the day, that's not my call.
my call as chairman of the foreign relations committee is to ensure that what we do is in our national interest it's something that is prudent, it's thoughtful, it's nuanced, it gets us to the right place. so while he's coming in my guess is between now and the time that he gets here there's going to be a more full alignment, we're going to know the direction that we're going and my guess is if we can -- my thought is if we can do that that's what's good for our nation. that's what i'm focused on. the other is something that you know is not within my control. >> well i hope you're able to create some consensus on this not only because iran policy matters so much through the american men and women -- >> yes, it does. >> -- but that is going to be an ugly situation between the dealings between the white house and congress going forward if you don't get to that point. please sir. >> if i could say one thing. >> please, sir. >> if we make a bad deal with iran you were talking about yemen, that means that not only
will we destabilize the middle east saudi arabia and other countries themselves will be 150eking nuclear arms. they're not going to stand for iran to have that capability and they not. what will happen is we'll release the faucet on huge amounts of sanctions. we're allowing a little bit to go in, but with a deal much more will flow. what you see happening in yemen, iran is supporting. >> yes. >> iran is supporting hamas. iran is supporting hezbollah. they will not only have the ability to have nuclear weapons or very close to that they're going to be able to destabilize the region even more because they're going to have much more resources at their hands. that's why this is so important. that's why all of us are working towards a solution. thank you for that extra time here. >> the stakes are clear. senator, you're welcome any time. you're the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. we're happy to have you on "new day" to tell us what's going on. thank you, sir. >> thank you. yes, sir. >> michaela. chris, we have an update for you on a story we've been
following for cnn. the scheduled flogging of a saudi blog ger has been postponed. he was scheduled for 50 lashes. a medical committee assessed that he was not medically fit to receive a second round of lashes. earlier this month the 30-year-old was given the first of 50 lashes of his sentence. a weekly flogging for five months. he was arrested in 2012 on a charge of assaulting islam. deadly fighting. in the last ten hours ten siville yajts. who is the drunken fool who nailed the cheer lieder in the head with a basketball.
>> during halftime in a game in new orleans. his character was supposed to have good shot but aimed for the cheerleader instead. reportedly to wreak havoc with his ex-wife. he was dragged out of the arena by building security. >> can you imagine if you were not really -- they obviously filmed that at a real game. >> can you imagine if you're not paying attentin didn't get the notice that this was a film. you might have wanted to rush the court? >> well that was the experience that i just had since chris did not alert us that was a kicker. thank you, chris. >> you got that. >> that was good. >> really? >> that was good. i can feel the energy coming towards me that we're seeing that as a joke. i felt that. that was going to be bad. >> will ferrell. >> first day. thank you for that chris. >> that's --

amid the chaos is it time to evacuate people. let's bring in jenn sahi. the situation in yemen is precarious as we've been reporting all morning. do you know who is in charge in yemen this morning sfwh. >> president hadi remains the legitimate leader in yemen, alisyn. we're closely monitoring the situation on the ground. there's been increasing violence. there's been tension on the ground. the step about the. we've had several guests on "new day." we've had senators we've had military experts, we've had global affairs analysts who say that a situation is so tenuous that the american lives at the embassy may be in danger. will you evacuate them today? >> well alisyn we're always prepared. there have been a range of reports out there about the preparations that the united states government has taken,
however, we look at a range of factors, a range of information. there's nothing more important to us to the secretary of state, to the president than the safety and security of our men and women serving overseas. we also need to take into account the fact that having a strong presence in yemen, having counter terrorism operations we continue to work on our international security interests. right now we continue to monitor, we continue to discuss internally. we have not made a decision to evacuate. >> here is senator dianne feinstein talking about that strong presence not being worth the risk. listen to this. >> well when it comes to this i really believe it's better to be safe than sorry. i really believe it's better not to risk the fact that yemeni troops guarding the embassy detaught and that something bad happens to our people. >> the of benghazi? >> it is a shadow of benghazi there's no question about it. >> jenn why would the state department take that risk this morning?
>> well alisyn with all due respect to senator feinstein, we have the responsibility at the state department to protect our men and women serving. we take that responsibility incredibly seriously, and we have taken steps around the world to evacuate embassies when needed to do ordered departures which means reducing staff which we did in yemen back in september. this is a situation we are watching hour by hour and talking about internally. i think it's an important point to note by your viewers the houthis, the opponents who have been negotiating, also said they are not targeting western targets. so we look at a range of information and we evaluate day by day. if we need to make the decision, we're prepared to do that. >> jen, we want to move on to something that john boehner has done that appears to have ruffled the feathers at the white house. he has invited prime minister benjamin netanyahu to the white house to discuss sanctions on iran. what does the state feel about this invitation to netanyahu
since the white house has said this breaks protocol and precedent? >> well there's no question the process here was a bit bizarre and certainly unusual. the prime minister of israel including prime minister netanyahu has come and spoken to a joint session many times before and will be welcome many times in the future so we haven't had a conversation with them about everything they'll talk about from here. i'm sure we will soon. there are some disagreements on iran. we have an agreement about the goal which is preventing iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon but we'll continue to certainly support their visit here whenever that's determined. >> how do you express your displeasure about this to either prime minister netanyahu or speaker john boehner? >> well i think we've been expressing our displeasure pretty clearly publicly. i'm sure we'll do that privately as well but also we have a responsibility not to get too wrapped up in protocol and to focus also on the issues at hand but the secretary speaks
with prime minister netanyahu frequently. they talk about everything from the tensions on the ground to security concerns in israel. those are issues we're going to continue to work closely with israel on. >> i understand not wanting to get too wrapped up in protocol but when it involves the leaders of countries, isn't there a protocol? >> of course there is, and it's -- this was certainly an unusual process not following typically what was done. we've spoken with that since the news came out, alisyn. look at this point what i think our focus is on what will the prime minister say here. ultimately we share a goal. we don't want to run to acquire a nuclear weapon. it's how we get there that we have some disagreements on so we'll continue to have that discussion and that debate with some in congress and certainly with some in israel as well. >> jen psaki, we know it's busy. >> thank you. over to chris. >> as you're probably figuring out, a lot of people love to hate the patriots but in the midst of deflate gate let's

no federal charges expected in the fbi's investigation of the michael brown shooting. sources tell cnn there was simply not enough evidence to charge former ferguson police officer darren wilson. cnn's sarah sidner is following developments. she is live in ferguson. now, sarah, the bar was always high for federal charges. they would have had to have evidence that they could show beyond a reasonable doubt that wilson shot brown because he was black. so take us through this and the reaction and also the other investigation that's still out there. >> reporter: right. so you know good morning, chris. here in ferguson the reaction right now, very slow coming because everyone wants to see the official report but we are hearing from both, you know a law enforcement source and a u.s. official that the federal investigation has been completed when it comes to looking into whether or not officer darren wilson who then has retired or
has left resigned from the department now, whether he intentionally killed michael brown because he was black. as you mentioned and intentionally deprived michael brown of his rights. what we're hearing from our sources is there is not enough evidence to prove there was a civil rights violation and therefore he will be cleared of that. there is of course another investigation that is ongoing. we are expecting to hear something though we hear the report has not been completed, but the federal government is also looking into the practices of the ferguson police department to see if there were any civil rights violations within the department with its policies and how it carried out the job it does of policing this particular city. so that has not been completed according to our sources and that's still out there and ongoing. we do expect to hear a conclusion of all of this though and ultimately it is the u.s. attorney general who will
make the final call. he is expected to leave the office in spring. we're expected to hear something before that. michaela and chris. >> thank you very much sara. we'll stay with you on this. we appreciate you being in ferguson. time now forty-five things you need to know. japanese officials, they are up against the clock to free two of their citizens held captive by isis. tokyo does not pay a $200 million ransom those men could be executed within 24 hours. in yemen the deal to end a coup against the government is in jeopardy. the government and rebels have started to implement the deal but mistrust has apparently frozen the progress in its tracks. right now it's unclear who is in charge. more talks on the agenda thursday as the u.s. and cuba look to restore diplomatic relations. there's disa dpreemt on house policy. house speaker john boehner defied president obama by

that fox music that says it's about to be super bowl time. what do you think, is zee flat gate over inflated? the scandal about the footballs certainly cast a dark shadow about the super bowl that we're getting ready for. it's not just about the balls it's about the games and how it's played. if these accusations against the new england patriots and its coach are true about the under inflated balls and their afc championship win against the colts, what does it mean? what should be done about it? did any of it really matter? that's what it's going to come down to. we have great guests joe theismann, former nfl mvp and
super bowl winning quarterback for the washington redskins. always wanted to be a jet. and jim deopolis former nfl official and supervisor of officials. he's a rules analyst for espn and monday night football. gentleman, thank you for both. joe theismann, i'm a huge fan way back from "cannonball run" days i've been a big fan. so what is the reality. >> thanks chris. >> we're going to get with you, jim, about what the balls were supposed to be how they got that way, what you think about the impact but, joe, as a quarterback, does it make a difference if everything's true about the difference in the balls, does it matter? >> no, it really doesn't chris. i'm glad you're a big fan of that wonderful movie that should have gotten an academy award nomination, "cannonball run ii" but i appreciate that. i did a scientific experiment yesterday. i decided to come to redskin park and get a ball that's
pumped -- this one's at 11, this one's at 13. you really can't tell that much of a difference with them. from a quarterback's perspective, when you throw the football you don't want to squeeze it real tight anyway. you have to have a certain type of grip similar to throwing a -- swinging a golf club. you don't want to choke it real hard you want to be able to hold onto it tight enough so that it allows the arm to move freely. it's the same thing with this. it's negligible. then you take into consideration what the weather was like in foxborough rainy, cold miserable day. the ball changes itself as the game goes on the ball changes. so the grip changes a little bit, the pressure to me is very negligible when it comes to deciding whether it's an advantage or not. >> all right. that's joe theismann's words on it. to you, mr. deopolis. one thing i will add that joe didn't say was it looked rainy and cold and certainly got that way, but when it started it was like 51 degrees. so we wouldn't have seen deflationary pressure from the atmosphere itself. but just take us through what you think of this situation.
do you think it's true first of all, the balls were under inflated how they got that way, and what it means? >> you know that's a very difficult question because what happens is the officials check the footballs prior to the game 2 1/2 before 2:15 before the game they check the footballs to make sure they have the proper psi. and as joe said i'm not sure if there's a big difference between 11.5 12.5 13.5 but as an official our responsibility is to make sure that the ball meets the specifications of the national football league. so once the game began, all the officials were trying to do is make sure that that was a ball that was stamped by the official by the referee, and it was a ball that met the qualifications or the specifications. >> right. >> how much of a difference it made i have no idea. >> all right. but if the balls were 11 out of 12 of them only on the patriots
side not on the colts side less inflated does that sound like something that had to be intentional? and why would they have done it? >> intention is very difficult to determine. that's what i am trying to find out. when i heard about this i thought it was aid non-issue. now as the nfl does its investigation it's going to be very interesting to find out how the air came out of those 11 footballs, why it didn't come out of the 12th football why it didn't come out of the indianapolis colts' football is very confusing to me. that's why i'm kind of reserving my decision here on how i feel about it until i -- at the actual who did it when they did it if it was done by a specific team. >> hey, jim, if the refs recognized at halftime that the balls were under inflated the assumption would be that they would re-inflate them right? >> that's correct, but you know the problem that you have as an
official official you know you go out there and we don't have gauges during the game. >> right. >> you don't have a gauge to tell how many pounds that are in the football. >> right. >> as the ball comes out your only job is to make sure it was one of the balls that was approved. >> right. >> you can't tell if the air has been let out. that's a difficult question to you know answer right now. >> right. >> i don't know what happened to the footballs. >> so if they reinflated them which is what the job suggest they do right, joe. they reinflated the balls, it was 21-7 in the half. they got crushed in the second half. >> exactly. >> obviously the balls being once again reinflated you know made it even worse for the colts. the idea that brady should have known, the idea that belichick, that this is an asterisk on him as one of potentially the greatest coach that we've had in nfl history, what do you think of those, joe? >> i think they're -- i think they're ludicrous accusations because, you know tom's handling a football. again, the weather was decent like you say, but it got worse
and worse. >> yes. >> the officials, they handle the balls as much as tom does and they didn't notice a difference for the entire first half. and by the way, there are 24 balls that are made available to teams and have it be known, the visiting team doesn't really need to bring footballs, they could actually use the footballs that the pats had. so that's just the way the rules are, but to say that the officials knew it was going on is i think wrong. to say that tom knew it all he wants to do is throw the football. he doesn't necessarily know the difference between the two of them. and it's not that he's not bright about it it's just that it didn't make that much of a difference. and when he made the comment about a few years back about gronk spiking the ball and deflating it that's just a force with which gronk spikes the ball. it's not deflated at all, it bounces back up. like i say, here's one that's a little bit -- it's 11 psi, this one's 13 psi. it's negligible the difference in them. i think this is a lot to do about nothing, and the point to be made is number one, the
officials handled the ball through the entire first half nobody noticed a difference. the game they scored 28 points the pats did in the second half and that was with what quote, unquote, an inflated football. >> right. >> legarrette blount rushed for 150 yards. >> there it is. i thought he was going to die of exhaustion the way he was running through the colts. joe theismann, jim daopoulous. they think that the right remedy is for the new york jets to replace the patriots and i think that's a bold statement and mix me. >> maria: -- me respect you. john riggins led them to all their greatness. thank you very much to both of you guys. >> thank you, very much. cnn would like to distance themselves from the comments of chris cuomo. morgan spurlock is giving us an inside look at the future of artificial intelligence and he told me that we have a new
