7:00 am
ow take their case to the voters. scene of the crime? aruban authorities enlist real actors to re-create the final moments before robyn gardner disappeared. did the dramatic reconstruction finally solve the mystery? dead but alive. charlie sheen, killed off on his sitcom last night. ruthlessly mocked at his roast. now, hollywood's troublemaker finally seems to be bouncing back. and big drama on the dance floor. carson kressley stuns with his jagger swagger. nancy grace dazzles in her debut. lots of support on the sidelines for david arquette. and the moment many were waiting to see. how did chaz bono do on the dance floor? good tuesday morning, everybody. what a night last night on "dancing with the stars." chaz bono was the final one to take the dance floor.
7:01 am
it was worth the wait. he had to be so nervous. but he really brought it. >> a lot lighter on his feet than i expected. don't forget the leaders, though. chynna phillips, j.r. martinez. they got the judges' votes last night. this is a really bunched pack. it will be a big season. >> and a lot of family support. the kardashians were there. courteney was there for david. new information about that huge satellite, about to crash-land later this week. it's the size of a school bus. it could drop anywhere from shanghai to seattle. this is huge. it could be dangerous. we'll have all the latest. we hope we can bring you all this. a little chaos in the control room today. >> in the control room. >> let's take a look. who is in charge back there? is it grover? is it elmo? >> no no. it's the other button. the other button. >> that's right.
7:02 am
this morning, 41st street is being turned into "sesame street." a lot of little girls out front are happy about that. >> look at them. >> pressing on the glass. who are those three? we want elmo. >> josh, we're going to give you the duty of following this. >> of following that? it's impossible. i do want to say today. i'm the coolest dad in the world i am today. sarina, daddy loves you. so does elmo. we begin with a couple of developing stories overnight. the first near oklahoma city, where an explosion near a natural gas drilling site shot flames hundreds of feet into the air. residents in a two-mile radius have been evacuated. the good news? no one was hurt in the explosion. workers escaped just in time. there's no word yet what caused the explosion. an parent bombing outside a secondary school in the heart of turkey's capital. three people killed, more than a dozen injured. three seriously.
7:03 am
meanwhile, the two hikers jailed in iran for more than two years were hoping to go free today. but this morning, their release has been delayed again. it appears the judges who had signed off on the release are playing politics and don't want to give their rival, iran's president, a p.r. victory, as he visits the u.n. in new york later today. turning to the economy, now. italy has become the latest country in europe to have its credit rating downgraded. five others have faced the same fate. but greece is still the primary concern for global investors, as officials there work frantically to avoid defaulting on its debt. there are questions this morning about who made big money after the u.s. credit rating was downgraded last month. "the wall street journal" says regulators are looking into possible insider trading at several firms, which bet ahead of time the stock market would, in fact, drop. there's new developments surrounding the serial killings on long island, new york. today, police are releasing jewelry and clothing from the
7:04 am
victims, in hopes that family will recognize them. five of the ten sets of remains have not been identified. sources say the victims appear to have been killed elsewhere, before being dumped on the beach. finally, the greatest closer in baseball history has the number to prove it. mariano rivera finished over the twins, for a 602nd save. in a career that began in 1996 and will end in cooperstown. again, the man is -- a metronome of greatness. we saw him there with two of his three sons. he goes out there time and time again. >> we get to see him. he's in our era. and we get to see him play. >> 602. what a number. we're going to turn to politics now. a tough, new pivot on taxes and spending. the president promised to veto any budget bill that cuts taxes on the wealthiest americans. democrats cheered. the republicans called it class warfare. jake tapper is with us this morning.
7:05 am
the president is here for u.n. meetings. he continued that tough talk last night. >> that's right. he said the democratic party was in a battle for the hearts and minds of the american people. president obama's laying out the case that taxes need to be raised on wealthier americans and corporations. house speaker john boehner says that doing that, raising taxes, is like giving a cocaine addict more cocaine. >> good morning, everybody. please, have a seat. >> reporter: a combative president obama presented his plan to reduce the deficit. $1.5 trillion of which is tax increases on wealthier americans. the president threw down the gauntlet. >> they should have to defend that unfairness. >> reporter: challenging republicans to explain why, for instance, hedge fund millionaires should be taxed at a lower rate than the middle class. >> i reject the idea that asking a hedge fund manager as a teacher is class warfare. >> reporter: polls indicate that the public strongly supports
7:06 am
raising taxes on wealthier americans. but given opposition to any tax increase, the president's plan seems more statement of principle and politics, more than a plan he thinks can pass congress. republicans called the president's plan d.o.a., and they have assailed it every which way. calling it bait and switch. ineffective leadership. saying president obama has no clue has to bring our economy back. >> the american people have good judgment. they know how to do this the right way. if we just get government out of the way and let the american people be all that they want to be. >> reporter: but the president is counting on the public rallying behind his cause. >> this is not class warfare. it's math. the money's going to have to come from some place. >> reporter: even if he's forced to contend with distractions, such as that book describing infighting at the white house. or unease on the left, with consumer advocate ralph nader and professor cornell west uniting to field a primary
7:07 am
challenger against the president. >> he's got martin luther king jr.'s bust in the oval office. martin luther king jr. weeps when he sees people suffering and no fundamental focus. >> reporter: and george as you said, president obama has pledged topledge ed to veto any measure that cuts medicare benefits without raising taxes on the wealthy. >> we have seen those trets to veto before. he's not going to back off this time. >> reporter: that's what he says. let's bring in democratic strategist, "gma" contributor, james carville, for more on all this. james, the president's speech was the kind of hard line you and other democrats were calling for. but are you worried that that class warfare charge might stick and scare off the moderate voters that obama's going to need next year. >> well, moderate voters know this. president clinton raised taxes on the wealthy and created 22 million jobs. president bush lowered the taxes on the wealthy and created 1 million jobs.
7:08 am
i think the people can figure that out. furthermore, raising the taxes are popular across, not just democratic voters. they're popular among everybody. 80% thought it should be a combination of tax cuts and spending cuts. our own democracy corps poll showed that raising taxes on the wealthier is one of the most popular ways to cut the deficit. i'm not concerned at all. i think moderate voters will be behind it. >> you irritated the white house last week by calling on the president to fire his economic and political team. now that he's take an new stance, are you still standing by that? >> look, i think he filed his old negotiating philosophy, which was a pretty good start. i think he is going to need some new people. and from everything i hear, there are going to be new people coming in. it will be a good thing. i think the combination of the disastrous debt ceiling deal and the elections in new york and nevada were a clear signal. this shows that the white house is responding to this. and this was a good start yesterday. i think he's got to go through and make other good starts. i was particularly -- >> what do you want to do exactly? >> i want to make changes. yesterday was a change. how do i know? they come in and say they have a communications problem. then fire the communications people. you have to identify something.
7:09 am
you can't have the kind of year they had and say, we're just going to keep doing things the way we did them. you have to do things differently. that happens in every organization. yesterday, it happened in this organization. and i suspect it's going to continue to happen. we can't afford -- go ahead. sorry, george. >> no. while this is all happening, you have "confidence man" from ron suskind, painting a picture of a team wracked by division. some in the white house, saying the president is not fully in control. how does that strike you? does it square with what you've seen? and how would you advise the white house to handle this book? >> first of all, the president has nominated two women to the supreme court. i don't know what happened in certain meetings in the white house. but that charge against the president is pretty shallow. making economic policy is hard. in the clinton administration
7:10 am
there was a lot of back and forth. there always is. to what extent, i don't know. and they can't do anything about what's in that book. what they can do is between now and the election -- i think yesterday was a start toward that. if he shows that kind of aggressiveness and makes some changes in personnel and gets different people in there, i think he can do quite a bit better. but it was pretty bad. this is the buffett vision, as opposed to the limbaugh vision. that's as simple as you can make this thing. >> we only have a few seconds left. what about the idea of a primary challenge? is it good for the democrats? and will it happen? >> no. don't you think ralph nader has done enough damage to the country? he was single handedly responsible for electing george bush. nader might ought to consider retiring. >> that's the last word this morning. james carville, thank you very much. now, to the massive satellite barreling towards the earth. chunks as big as 300 pounds will crash down. but no one knows where. abc's neal karlinsky has been
7:11 am
tracking. he's got the latest from seattle. good morning, neal. >> reporter: robin, good morning. the countdown is on. it's coming fast. this is a live track of the u.r. satellite. it just came overhead where i am on the west coast. it's over the tip of south america right now. here's the strange part. we have the technology to see where it is at every second, the officials at nasa say they have no idea exactly where it's going to strike when it finally comes burning in, in just a couple of days. it sounds like some kind of bizarre weather forecast. nasa, calling for a sprinkling of metal debris to fall from the sky friday morning. they just don't know where. >> even as we get to the final orbits, we don't know where on that path it's going to come in. and that covers a tremendous amount of land. >> reporter: the upper atmosphere research satellite, known as uars, is hurtling towards earth at 1,800 miles per hour. its current track has it about
7:12 am
130 miles up and dropping. where it will land, that's the drop. it orbits the earth every 89 minutes. now that it's tumbling, it follows a new path every time around. passing over not just a whole lot of ocean, but cities, from seattle to shanghai. >> once it hits a critical point, it will drop out of the sky. and we really won't know that until a few hours before it hits. >> reporter: most of the 6 1/2-ton satellite is expected to burn up in the atmosphere. but 26 chunks, ranging from just a pound to 350 pounds, will make it through. and come crashing down over a stretch of 400 to 500 miles, somewhere between the tip-top of canada and the very bottom of south america. the crash zone is hard to pinpoint. but the odds of a single person anywhere being hit are about 1 in 3,200. more likely than a hole in one or a shark attack. in 2003, pieces of the space shuttle "columbia" rained down
7:13 am
from texas all the way to louisiana, sending smoldering debris crashing through roof tops and even landing on trailers. officials at nasa think they'll only be able to put a bull's eye on where this thing's going to strike just about two hours before it hits. likely friday morning. that is not a lot of notice. but they say even if you're not directly in the path, it's probably worth looking up because the satellite should put on quite a nice show, as it comes flaming over the sky, again, likely friday morning. >> come on, neal. like you're really going to be looking up and there might be some 100-pound thing falling on your head. but look up there any way? that's what they're saying? we'll give it a shot. thanks, neal. i think i'll keep looking down. now, we're going to turn to the medical debate stirred up by nfl superstar, peyton manning. the indianapolis colts quarterback has been sidelined this season by a neck injury.
7:14 am
surgery after surgery has failed. he recently flew to europe for stem cell therapy that's not approved in the u.s. as abc's john berman reports, that has some doctors here crying foul. >> reporter: all-pro quarterback peyton manning has thrown thousands of perfect passes in nfl games. it's his latest medical hail mary that is causing controversy. manning, out for months with a bulging disc in his neck, reportedly traveled all the way to europe for experimental, and some think dangerous, adult stem cell therapy. >> when you leave a well-regulated environment, all bets are off. >> reporter: in treatment not approved by the fda, stem cells are removed from a healthy part of your body and injected into the problem area. the hope is they can repair damaged cells. the problem, some doctors say, is there is not enough proof it works for this type of injury. >> experimenting on humans, or promising things to humans that can't really be delivered is not ethical. >> reporter: manning is one of
7:15 am
the game's megastars. clearly desperate to get back on the field. before the season, he said, to say i'm disappointed in not being able to play is an understatement. i am doing everything i can to get my health back. the worry is -- >> if hundreds or thousands of people go out and say, it was good enough for mr. manning, what about me? >> reporter: it doesn't appear that manning's stem cell treatment was successful. he just had his third surgery in 19 months and could be lost for the season. for "good morning america," john berman, abc news. >> wow. tough time for peyton manning. >> four-time mvp. and his team lost the first two games without him. wish him the best. >> that's too bad. okay, sam? >> you're our mvp. >> i won't be when you see the showers on the eastern seaboard. that changes quickly. from maine down to new orleans today, this is where the cold front activates the showers. in northern areas, it's just a light shower and scattered clouds. in southern areas, it's needed rainfall. from new orleans to jacksonville, to the georgia coastline, to raleigh, there
7:16 am
will be rain. that can be an inch to two inches of rain in those locations. we see a brand-new storm system in the northern dakotas here. this will be a big player later this week, with cold wind and real -- it's a strong cold front. we'll talk about that more the next half hour.
7:17 am
g, big, big warmup on the west coast. >> when you see 90 on the board in dallas, viewers outside say, we're so hot in texas, we're on fire. >> they have been. >> yes. they're having a good time. you know who is also hot? that is charlie sheen. he was roasted last night. you know who was invited? our andrea canning was there. she tells us all about it. >> i didn't go to the roast. i was a part of the roast. they took the opportunity to replay part of the interview, make fun of it once again. charlie getting pinged with one
7:18 am
insult after the next. but the biggest sheen joke was on the premiere of "two and a half men." charlie's funeral was held after he was hit and killed by a train. >> please welcome the rock star from mars, charlie sheen. >> reporter: at his roast on comedy central, charlie sheen arrived like a rock star. and took it like a man. >> tell us, charlie. how do you go from being tv's highest-paid actor ever, to being the highest actor ever to be on tv? >> prostitutes cost a lot of money, charlie. hasn't anyone told you that actresses will sleep with you for free? >> reporter: before this, there were moments of self-deprecating, late night humor. and his humble appearance on sunday's emmys. >> i wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. >> reporter: evidence that sheen appears to be strangely normal, since our infamous interview.
7:19 am
>> i'm a high priest, warlock. come on, man. >> reporter: what does that mean? >> i don't know. >> reporter: where do these words come from? >> they're words that sound cool together. it comes from my grand wizard master. >> we're seeing a new charlie sheen. and he's acting with a great deal of class and dignity, which is certainly not the charlie sheen we've been used to this year. >> reporter: today, sheen has never seemed so alive, despite being killed off in the "two and a half men" season premier. >> i know this is a sad day for all of us. >> speak for yourself. >> reporter: on monday, jon cryer thanked his former co-star, and the producers who eventually fired sheen. >> when they saw somebody who was clearly in distress, took every possible means to try and help their friend. and did something that i -- in my belief, saved my friend, charlie sheen's, life. >> and all is well again. we have a photo we want to show
7:20 am

aruban authorities, re-creating the final moments before robyn gardner disappears. why they're using real actors on that beach. and we're going to talk to gary
7:30 am
giordano's new attorney, jose baez, coming up. we have the mansion murder mystery out of san diego. brand-new development on "gma." the boyfriend you see of the woman who died, has written a letter to investigators, asking them to re-examine all of the evidence in this case. we're going to bring that to you in just a few minutes. >> so bizarre. and on a much lighter note "dancing with the stars." a lot of people buzzing about that. and the muppets from "sesame street," taking over. grover does do windows. >> a lot of fun with grover and the gang in a few minutes. we begin with the latest on robyn gardner. she disappeared in aruba more than six weeks ago. only one suspect, her travel companion, gary giordano, is being investigated. and investigators spent the afternoon, re-enacting their last moments ago.
7:31 am
we're going to talk to giordano's attorney, jose baez, in a moment. first, we go to matt gutman in aruba. >> reporter: good morning, george. investigators spent about an hour at this rocky beach, trying to figure out what happened. at some point, know that he they went snorkeling. robyn went towards the beach. she cut her foot on this rock. and she went out anyway. that's when the trail goes cold. the arrival, gardner and giordano would snorkel here. using actors to play the roles of gardner and giordano investigators tried to piece together what happened that day. and whether giordano committed a crime. now, he claims he's innocent that the current pulled gardner out to sea. >> this isn't going to be the make-or-break issue in the case.
7:32 am
but it's a nice argument to have. according to our re-enactment there's no way his story makes sense. >> reporter: and the actors playing gashed never and giordano convincing stunt doubles. that dress, so close to the one in this picture. the hair. and giordano. similar build, height. and the same type of shorts and shoes. for two hours, investigators and attorneys ran through various scenarios. parking the white rav 4, next to the rum reef restaurant, where the last pictures of gardner were taken. the two of them getting out. there, they walk towards the beach. in these exclusive images, you see the actors putting on snorkel and fins and splashing into the water. then, they re-create giordano's dash for help. except in this surveillance video, giordano isn't running. he's walking. something that caused investigators to suspect him from the start. though he insists he caused
7:33 am
gardner no harm giordano was arrested three days after gardner disappeared. now, there is a good chance that giordano may never face a trial here in aruba, george. but we are learning that tomorrow, a federal grand jury is convening in maryland. and giordano could see charges and indictment in the u.s. george? >> matt, thanks. let's hear from giordano's team thinks about this from his new attorney jose baez. many of you may remember he successfully defended casey anthony. what are you hearing from police about their findings? >> well we're against the reconstruction of the event, as they call it. i don't think there's any way of jumping into a time machine and going back and replicating exactly what occurred on that day. so especially since the solicitor general has come out and stated that they're doing this in order to shoot holes into his story. so, we have been against that
7:34 am
from the start. >> you've been against it. and you chose not to participate. why did you choose to take this case in the first place? are you convinced gary giordano's innocent? >> absolutely. this case -- what's very unfortunate about this case the political pressures due to the natalee holloway case that gary giordano is now paying for. he had nothing to do with miss holloway's disappearance. but he's feeling the after-effects that the aruban police and the investigators office botched that case. >> what evidence has the aruban police shared with you in this case? >> there's been statements by witnesses. gary has given a total of 16 different statements to law enforcement. i don't know how many different ways he can be asked certain questions. but they've asked him in many various ways.
7:35 am
he's answered them giving the same answer each time. >> after so many of us that were watching this case is the fact that gary giordano took out a life insurance policy on robyn gardner and tried to cash it in just after she disappeared. that raised a whole lot of questions, as you know. you said this the first time yesterday, i had not heard this before. that robyn gardner also took out a life insurance policy on giordano. is that true? >> what these are, they're not life insurance policies. they're labeled as life insurance policies. what they are are travel insurance. every time mr. giordano has traveled this year, whether it's been with robyn gardner or other individuals. he had another companion he traveled with and got the same travel insurance on. so, what this covers is medical, dental, car rental and a whole slew of other things including accidental death. >> you're saying on this trip
7:36 am
she also took out a life insurance policy or travel insurance policy on him? >> yes. the two had travel policies on each other. since gary was paying for the trip, gary was the beneficiary of robyn's policy. >> oh. that explains. he was going to get -- >> correct. so, let's say something happened with his rental car. he would have -- since he was paying for the trip, he would have to get the payout for the claim. so, that's why both of them got -- had the insurance on each other. >> okay. the next hearing is set for the end of october. are you confident the aruban authorities are going to have to set gary giordano free? >> at this point, we're not certain about anything. unfortunately, very little is coming out of the prosecution camp. all we know is that there is no evidence. and everything that keeps getting turned over to the defense is quite -- it's all smoke, no fire. >> okay. jose baez thanks for your time this morning.
7:37 am
>> thank you for having me. it's time now, for weather and sam champion. >> good morning, everybody. let's deal with rain in the texas area. it was an unusual sight when it was rolling through. they picked up about an inch of rain in the houston area. when you need rain this desperately, and it's so dry, and it comes in one inch in a quick short period of time a lot of it runs off and floods and doesn't soak into the ground. there were big wind and storms with that, as well. dallas at 90 today. houston at 89 degrees. quick look at the big board. we'll show you what it looks like on the west coast. gorgeous weather in the southwest. and one of the "gma" team is going to l.a. tomorrow. hmm. who could that be?

"20/20" co-anchor, elizabeth vargas, is back with an exclusive. you were hear yesterday. and your report opened a lot of eyes. >> it did, robin. within hours of our interview with rebecca zahau's family jonah shacknai joined them. he is asking the attorney general to look into the tragic death of his 6-year-old son and
7:43 am
the bizarre death two days later of his long-time girlfriend. citing the unrelenting squirrel of questions raised by family members and media since his girlfriend's death was ruled a suicide, jonah shacknai is taking his own tern. submitting a letter to the california attorney general, questioning that he found to be sound, scientific. now, he's asking for a further review, saying justice may not have been served. it is my hope, that your review of rebecca's death will serve the interest of justice, by bringing confidence, comfort and resolution. police ruled rebecca zahau's death a suicide, her hands bound behind her back her feet tied her mouth gagged. police had a woman re-enact how rebecca might have tied her hanlds herself. roy black wrote a column about it for "the daily beast."
7:44 am
>> they did a forensic investigation. they searched for dna all through that room on the rope. it all came back to rebecca. the only real answer is suicide, not homicide. >> reporter: but shacknai's letter states the circumstances of rebecca's suicide were so unusual and upsetting, that it was difficult to accept the hard facts presented. investigators say the alleged suicide was prompted by max's death. two days earlier while rebecca was baby sitting, the 6-year-old boy fell down the stairs. he later died from his injuries. >> you can just imagine this woman, who is tortured by this about this young child dying. you can see why she may have committed suicide. >> reporter: but family members remain adamant that suicide is not an option. >> you mean to tell me somebody who is doing really well all 32 years of her life in a matter of two hours, is going to decide to do all this elaborate plans. >> reporter: shacknai's letter

addresses rebecca's family. and says he can understand the pain they are experiencing. jonah shacknai was at the hospital sitting by his dying son's bed. jonah shacknai's friends and family say this has been a twin tragedy. two deaths within two days of two people close to him. >> there's so many questions we need to be answered still. >> we haven't heard from the california attorney general. but we will shortly. >> good to have you here. and coming up dancing's hottest cast ever. waltzes in the ballroom. who sizzled? who, not so much? and the stars who were cheering on the sidelines.o the simply o ur. this is our plant. these are our workers... and this, is upper management. but what you won't find around here is any freezing flavoring or concentrating. which brings us to our end product.

for a while now, you've been taking an antidepressant. but your cloud of depression is still with you. maybe it's time to ask your doctor about adding seroquel xr to your antidepressant to treat your depression. seroquel xr is a once-daily, extended-release tablet, which means medication is released around the clock. for many, seroquel xr, when added to an antidepressant, was proven more effective than an antidepressant alone at helping people feel less depressed. call your doctor if you have unusual changes in mood, behavior or thoughts of suicide.
8:13 am
antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients taking seroquel xr have an increased risk of death. call your doctor if you have fever, stiff muscles, and confusion as these may be signs of a life-threatening reaction or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements as these could become permanent. high blood sugar has been reported with seroquel xr and medicines like it and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death. your doctor should check for cataracts. other risks include increased cholesterol and weight gain as well as seizures, dizziness on standing, drowsiness, impaired judgment, trouble swallowing and decreases in white blood cells, which can be fatal. use caution before driving or operating machinery. isn't it time to put more distance between you and your depression? talk to your doctor about seroquel xr. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.

8:20 am
ricki lake has got it. >> let me ask you, ricki lake said she was really nervous. there was a lot of famous people in the audience. courteney cox was there to support david arquette. and all of the kardashian girls. a little heckling from khloe. i think she told one of the judges to clean between his ears. does that make the contestants even more nervous? >> big-time. it's great to have the support. but to have courteney and coco there was really great. but it does pull your focus. that happened to me. when i was dancing, i saw marie in the audience, blew my focus and the dance. it's great to have support. it's going to be a fun season, lara. i can hardly wait to see what happens. >> we want you back. we gotta hear everything.
