9:00 am
nightfall in philippines where the conditions are dire and the people of the country are reeling from shock, as they mourn the victim from the worst typhoon to ever hit land. so far, the red cross estimates that 1200 people have died. that number is expected to rise. as crews reach remote areas and search regions and the devastation is described as "horrific." making matters worse we have news another storm is approaching that region. let's get to dana piper -- david piper streaming live for us from bangkok. david? >> hi, uma. the true scale of the death and destruction is only just
9:01 am
becoming apparent in philippines. the death toll is likely to rise in the next few days. the typhoon smashed in to the philippines friday, packing winds of nearly 200 miles per hour. experts believe it could be the strongest typhoon to make landfall in recorded history. the central philippines felt the brunt of the storm. communities were ripped apart, as the strong winds flung vehicles about and tore down buildings. 15-foot high waves from a storm surge flooded coastal towns and villages. landslides and trees blocked roads, hampering the relief effort. there is still no communication and it's difficult to find out what has happened on some islands. the worst area is the coastal city that was engulfed by a storm surge. the aviation officials say the flight crew reported bodies on the street. the roads are still blocked leading from the local airport in to taklaban and the only way in is by helicopter.
9:02 am
united nations disaster team said it's a scene of devastation. the head of the team said he hasn't seen a similar scale of destruction since indian ocean tsunami. 1,000 people died in this one city. military is making relief flight to the hardest hit area but are not clear the scale of the de station. the typhoon is now moving across the south china sea and is expected to hit central vietnam on sunday. 170,000 troops are mobilized there and massive evacuation of over 200,000 people from the coast is now underway. vietnam has been hammered by two recent typhoons. we still have two months to go in the season. >> the images are incredible. thank you. well, from bad to worse. let's go to meteorologist janice dean who says another storm on the way to the devastated region. more torrential downpours are
9:03 am
expected. >> unfortunately, taking a look at the storm. we have a storm that is going to form in the next couple of days to take a similar path to the super typhoon. there we are right there. the sustained winds upon landfall are 195 miles per hour. we think would make it the strongest typhoon, supertyphoon tropical cyclone on record to make landfall at that strength. so as david mentioned it's moving toward vietnam and we think it will hug the coast in the next several days. i will weaken which is good news. but as uma mentioned we have another storm forecast model predicting will go along the same path the super typhoon haiyan. there is the path. watch what happens. there is haiyan right there. we look at the global forecast modeling and you can see another storm forming. it will not be the strong typhoon that we saw hitting this area in the last several days but it's still going to cause some problems for an already very vulnerable area.
9:04 am
especially just a rainstorm is going to cause problems for this area. i will follow along the same path. so this is something we're going to have to monitor carefully. if you want to make a comparison at the strongest, katrina 165 miles per hour sustained winds. haiyan 1ed 95-mile-per-hour sus -- haiyan, 195-mile-per-hour sustained winds. i could be the strongest storm to make landfall in recorded history. back to you. >> thank you for update. well, despite intense negotiations there is still no agreement on a possible deal to curb iran nuclear program. the world waits as the international talks continue for a third day now. jennifer griffin is watching the latest development. >> it seems talks in geneva hit a snag, according to the french foreign minister who has been the most forthright and blunt about the problems in achieving a satisfactory
9:05 am
interim deal. secretary of state john kerry abruptly changed the schedule to fly to geneva and the talks entered unexpected third day, hopes were raised that a deal might be close. then the reality set in. the tone coming from leaders involved in the meetings began to change. >> we haven't done the deal yet. we haven't made the deal yet. everybody will have to comment on it if and when we -- [ inaudible ] make the adjustments about it then. i would ask everyone to be patient and to wait for us to arrive at that conclusion, if we can. >> a big if. it seems now there are some roadblocks being introduced by the iranian side. they want sanctions lifted in immediately on their oil and banking sectors. the most effective of the sanks architecture. not clear whether the iranians would be satisfied with the west's proposal for a one-time infusion of $50 billion in cash that was frozen in
9:06 am
european banks when the sanctions went in effect. then there is issue of the plutonium-producing reactor. according to those near the talks the iranian negotiators are resisting western demand to suspend work at the reactor which is expected to go online next year. it's not clear that the iranians will agree to western demands to downgrade its stockpile of higher enriched urianum. the stockpile 20% can be turned to the weapons grade uranium for a bomb. these are central issues. the iranians have 440 pounds of the higher enriched uranium. just 100 pounds more and the iranians will have enough material for a single nuclear warhead. time is of the essence. yet the talks in geneva which looked so promising when the u.s. secretary of state and others made their way to switz land grind on. -- switzerland grind on. >> thank you. >> they pay nothing because they are not reducing in any
9:07 am
way the nuclear enrichment capability. so iran got the deal of the century. and the international community got a bad deal. this is a very bad deal. >> well, as jennifer pointed throughout is no official deal just yet but israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is wasting no time strongly opposing even the possibility of a nuclear agreement between six major world powers led by the u.s. and iran. he is not alone. with many skeptics in the international community warning that any deal could ease crippling sanctions against iran must come with a guarantee that iran must be stripped of the technology to make nuclear weapons. bottom line, can iran be trusted? joining us now, middle east expert and senior fellow at the hoover institution. welcome, great to have you here today. >> thank you very much, uma. >> all along, irain denied it's working on a nuclear weapon and it won't submit to any plan to totally eliminate nuclear program. what has happened right now to
9:08 am
give western powers confidence or any hope that iran may be willing to curb the expansion of the nuclear activity? >> well, it's illusion of the obama administration that the iran is ready to make a deal and make an honest deal. my take on it if you like obamacare, you'll love this deal with iran. the fact of the matter is iran is hell-bent on acquiring a nuclear weapon. iran is hell-bent at the same time on lifting the sanctions. the truth is, of course, the sanctions once you lift them, once you begin to lift them, you can't roll them back. i think it's a bad deal. i think the reason we don't have this bad deal yet is because the french were the ones who called halt to negotiations. >> is the west naive to think some of the sanctions that hurt iran's economy lifted this tehran could be trusted to abide by any deal to stop the enrichment of uranium or eliminate the nuclear program? >> uma, if you go back to the
9:09 am
beginning of the obama administration, if you go to 2009, president obama has been consistent. he has sought a deal with iran. he has sought to accommodate iran. he believed iran's good intention in region. i think if you look at what jennifer in her story before was talking, a the irainians have a heavy water reactor. it produces plutonium, which is one way for the bomb, opposed to uranium enrichment, which is another way. they have iraq and the facilities are off the table. i think they understood the need of the president in august, the need of the president who flubbed the syria story and in a desperate need of a deal. >> let me ask you. we heard from benjamin netanyahu reacting to word of
9:10 am
a possible deal. what impact would this have on the relationship with israel if the western powers reach some kind of an accord with iran? >> look at what we are pursuing in this deal with iran. we are pursuing deal with iran and doing good business with russians. but we are antagonizing the allies, israel and saudi arabia. these are two pivotal allies in the region. jordan and the united arab emirates. we're romancing the rogue and forgetting about the allies. we should never go in the negotiation with iran far ahead of saudis and israelis. >> stakes remain quite high. i know you will keep a close watch on the development as they continue in geneva. thank you for joining us today. >> thank you for having me.
9:11 am
>> turning to the continuing concerns over the problem plaguing the obamacare roll out. news that the head of the house oversight committee wants to hear under oath from the man in charge of that flawed website that produced nothing but headaches for most of the folks who are trying to log on. congressman darrell issa is issuing a subpoena to president obama top technology advisor todd park. issa wants park to testify before committee next week. the white house says park is willing to testify, but must continue to focus on fixing that website. >> even though it's a small percentage of folks who may be disadvantaged it means a lot to them. it's scary to them. and i am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselveses in this situation, based on assurances they got from me. >> so far we know that one in 4 million americans have been dropped from the healthcare
9:12 am
plans due to the new regulations set in place by obamacare. the numbers are expected to get higher. a the president apologizes this week to those who never expected to lose their coverage, thousands remain upset over the president's broken promise if you like your healthcare plan, you could keep it. laurie and curtis mulholland love their healthcare plan and are shocked to learn they will be drop and the costs costs will double from what they are paying and look ahead to $6,000 deductible for services they say they don't want or need. welcome. thank you for joining us. laurie, let me begin with you. did the president's apology make any difference to you at all? or do you feel betrayed? >> i feel like there was not a sincere apology. i feel as though he used the word the we find -- the people that are canceled are finding themselves in this position.
9:13 am
he put us in this position. they knew this they were going to have to cancel all of these policies. otherwise this law, we would not be able to fund obamacare. >> curtis, as i understand it, because your options are far more expensive than before, you may opt to have no coverage at all at this point? >> it's going to -- i'm not sure what we're going to do. we may just pay the penalty and save the money, put it in an account and use it for the medical care. but yeah, i'm not sure what we're going to do. >> you are not alone. a lot of americans are facing some tough choices right now. lorie, as you try to figure out what to do, how difficult do you find the unchartered waters as part of the haste maze? how has it impacted your life in a way you never counted on?
9:14 am
>> we felt like we had a choice about our healthcare. and we could decide what we wanted to opt in to and what we wanted to opt out of. the feeling now we're forced in to things we don't need and we don't want and we can't afford. it's nearly $40 a month us. >> with a high -- >> it's nearly $400 a month for us. >> with higher deductible. >> i want to show you the cancellation let they're you received. and one that must have shocked you. >> well, we got it pretty early, too. i think it was september 27 we got the letter. i got a lot of time to do a lot of research. i have called anthem, we are with anthem currently.
9:15 am
we like that plan. it works for us. they're actually a really good insurance company. and i have done tons of research. i've gone on cover california. on covered california it's $1,017. so our plans goes from $536 a month to $905. >> a big jump. i have a few second left. how does it affect your feelings about the government and the leadership right now in america? >> it's -- i'm really discouraged. you know, we were supposed to be able to keep our plan if we likedded our plan. it's not happening. it's total lie. >> lorie and curtis, thank you for sharing your story with us. we wish you the best. i know it's a difficult road ahead. i hope you keep us posted. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> well, we are taking the conversation now to twitter to see how you feel about the continuing roadblocks and the big-time challenges folks are experiencing with obamacare. do you think all the problems
9:16 am
tied to the obamacare roll-out can get worked out by the end of november as the white house is promising? or will there be no choice but to delay operations until next year? tweet us your answers. @uma pemmaraju. new information in the biker brawl on camera. indictments have been handed out. now the undercover police officer who is with the bikers learn what is ahead for him. a live report coming your way next. plus, lieutenant colonel oliver north joining us live with his take on the ongoing talks over iran's nuclear future. and just before veterans day, he is sharing his inspiring story from his new book "american heroes on the home front. the heart of heroes.

9:29 am
u.n. teams are helping out with the recovery effort as another powerful storm approaches. it's day three of the international talks in geneva to try and reach an agreement to possibly curb iran's nuclear program. and in exchange, ease sanctions. leaders from six nations are in negotiations at the time. the verdict is guilty for utah doctor convicted of drugging his wife and drowning her in a bathtub. prosecutors argued that the motive was the desire to be with his mistress for whom he had a 15-month affair. the olympic torch found its way to space. two russian cosmonauts will take the olympic torch on the first spacewalk this week. the same torch that will light the flame at the opening of the 2014 winter olympic games in russia. a quick look at the top stories making news right now. more now on iran. and the intense talks that continue today in geneva over
9:30 am
a possible deal to curb iran nuclear ambitions. western diplomats including secretary of state john kerry are pushing for a deal that could ease sanctions if iran stopped enriching uranium to produce nuclear weapons. conor powell has reaction from israel where the mood there remaps quite tense. connor? >> uma, for the past 15 years, prime minister benjamin netanyahu led the fight to shut down iran nuclear program. but as talks between the international community in iran have intensified, netanyahu is lashing out at those negotiations. insisting that any agreement to lift iran's sanctions before iran is stripped of the nuclear, the ability to produce nuclear weapons would be "a bad deal." netanyahu has issued four very strongly-worded statements in 24 hour. condemning any type of inner
9:31 am
room sanction. it highlights the growing gap between the israeli leaders who want to prevent any deal and the international community who want to prevent a military confrontation. with iran. >> israel is not oblined by this -- obliged by the agreement. they will do everything they need to do to defend itself and defend the security of its people. >> iran, of course, denies any interest in developing nuclear weapons saying that the atomic program is for peaceful, civilian purposes and when asked about netanyahu's comments the white house said any critique of a deal is premature because there is no agreement. it does appear the international community is far from a deal. netanyahu is angry about the talks and where they might be leading. now president obama and netanyahu did speak yesterday. the relationship between the two men have long been frosty. this process, the negotiations between the united states and the international community in
9:32 am
iran will test the relationship going forward. uma? >> it will indeed. conor, thank you very much. go live to former marine colonel oliver north. welcome. greet have you here. >> good to be with you. his report is dead on, as you probably note. the problem of course is not just israel. the problem is the so-called nonproliferation regime that this administration purports to support. the difficulty here is netanyahu was right when he said reagan's policy was trust but verify. our policy with iran ought to be distrust and verify. nothing is set in place to make sure that the iranians remove any of their minutes of what we have seen from the meeting in geneva. >> so let me ask you, is it naive to believe that iran can be trusted to honor any agreement that will curb the nuclear ambitions? is that just folly? >> i think it is folly.
9:33 am
i think netanyahu and the saudis are understandably very distressed about this. it would not be at all surprising in the aftermath of whatever comes out of geneva to see the saudis proceed with their open development of nuclear weapons. that is just the opposite of what we wanted for that part of the world and what has been the policy now for the better part of 40 years. the difficulty, though he talks softer was once the european negotiator. he lied then. what is to say he's not lying now? >> as the sanctions begin to go away what leverage is there to keep iran motivated to stop enriching uranium need forward bomb? couldn't it do it in secret anyway? >> some of the sanctions have been softened and it's a way to look good for iran to capture some of the $50 billion it's been frozen in the assets elsewhere around
9:34 am
the world. sanctions is what they want lifted. the difficulty is tracking what they do with it afterwards. the development process for intercontinental ballistic missile delivery systems and nuclear weapons with yeonpyeong, north korea. north korea is the wildman in this. they were involved in building the reactor that israelis took out in syria and they were involved in all kind of icbm testing. of course, we don't know how much money iranians are putting in the north korean system if they agree we won't do it in iran, what is to say they won't do it in north korea. >> a big unknown. now i want to shift gears to get to a project that has been close to your heart. >> you released a new book "american heroes on the home front." you profile the amazing men and women from battlefield to home front and show us why
9:35 am
they're inspirations to us all. why was this important to document stories? >> make sure i have this right side up. the marine bah at thion in 2006 through iraq and we -- battalion in 2006 through iraq. and we kept telling story on the home front. it got home and betsy said you never understood what we were going through at home. she had been a marine wife for better part of quarter over of a century. she was right. i wanted to tell more of the story. the stories in the book are about the real american heroes. those that fox has allowed me to keep company with for 12 years. the real heroes are not just wearing the flak jackets and helmet and flight suits. some of the heros are the mates, the family, loved ones at home who also made enormous
9:36 am
sacrifice. this book coming out at veterans day recognizing the extraordinary sacrifice, dedication, commitment and the love that helps them recover is important for all americans to understand, not just those no who have been there and done that. >> leave it to betsy to make it clear to you in terms of what also is important. folks back home who sacrifice a great deal with the loved ones or overseas. >> indeed. the rest of the service gave us unprecedented access. there are images in this book that are much more graphic than we would put on the air at fox news. i have never shown the face in all the thousands of reports of a wounded or dead american. i'm not going to start on television now. but those graphic images in this book were put there because they wanted it there. and, of course, it's pretty bold. but it also shows the extraordinary lengths to which they have come in recovering rehabilitation. one last point, none of these men or women in this book want
9:37 am
sympathy. they're not looking for pity. they don't want to be treated as victims. what they want is a good productive job so they can take care of their families. unfortunately, the unemployment rate for veterans of this war is double that of the national average for their peer group. >> they are true heroes. courageous, one and all. we thank them for their service and we thank you for bringing their stories to us in your new book. thank you so much for joining us today, sir. always good to see you. >> uma, greet be with you. thank you. >> thank you. well, america's toughest sheriff is making sure his inmates honor veterans this weekend. we'll tell you all about his creative punishment and why some think it may be a violation of the constitution. plus, it's outraging some folks. tom cruise compares his job to fighting in afghanistan. we'll explain. plus, the latest on crack-smoking, binge-drinking toronto mayor rob ford. all that and more coming your way next.
