>> good morning to you. as one white house official tells me, everything is on the menu. that includes another meeting at the white house with the president who will be hosting key members of national security, committee is try to prevent them to support his call in action in syria. meanwhile, a show down with say sawed bashar is heating up. with syria's civil war, the french newspaper said they can't prove the syrian regime uses chemical weapons against its own people.
we challenged the u.s. and france to put forward any proof. the middle east is a powder keg and the fire is approaching today. everyone will lose control once the powder keg explodes. the risk of a regional war exists. in washington today for the first time in an open forum, the obama administration will make its case for military action before members of congress. secretary of state and defense secretary to testify in front the senate foreign relations committee on which both men once serve the. the president's plan faces skepticism from both sides. among the foreign policy hawks, republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham who met with the president monday afterwards saying that the white house is developing a better strategy. >> we urged the president to up his game and inform the american
people what does it mean if assad wins and the opposition loses? >> reporter: the president's window to make his case is closing. he heads overseas tonight. where he'll try to gain international support. even some russian lawmakers told vladimir putin, they want to come to washington to vote against president obama's plan. and what to watch for over the next several days is members of coming reluctant to support any military action. saying they want better clarity about what it will look like. they want the scope and scale to be better limited. that is something that the officials here say they are willing to accommodate. >> thank you so much. let's turn to senator john mccain. he is making headlines. he joins us from capitol hill. good morning to you. >> good morning.
>> you said yesterday on the white house north lawn for congress to reject the president's call for military action would be, quote, cat trough fik. does that mean you are a yes vote for military action even if it doesn't go as far as you would hope? >> no, it does not. i can't support something that i'm afraid maybe doomed to failure in the long-run. but it still are be catastrophic if we turn down and reverse a policy that was -- an action that was going to take place. i think it does horrendous damage to the credibility of the president of the united states. but if this resolution doesn't do with what we discussed with the president yesterday, getting sufficient weapons and the right kind of weapons to the syrian army, and changing the momentum
on the ground in syria from assad's favor to that of the pre-syrian army, then this resolution will not have the desired effect. >> everyone knows that syria is an array of pad and worse options. is it better to do nothing than something that is limited? >> i think it's a very tough call. but to do nothing, is as i said, would have kons kwepss throughout the world. but to do something that really other words, some token strikes and then some time later assad uses those chemical weapons again? what do we do then? go through the same routine. the president of the united states put himself in a very difficult position when he said two years ago that assad should leave. a year ago that there was a red line in the use of chemical weapons. and now after saying that he would launch strikes is now
referring to congress for their approval or disapproval. it's a very difficult game that he's playing. and the stakes are incredibly high. and by the way, this is already a regional conflict. >> and very quickly, just to be candid with the american people, if the u.s. were to engage in military action in syria, what are the chances that that's the end of it? is there any scenario that the u.s. does not get more deeply involved? >> yes. you provide the weapons and you take out the air power that is the distinct advantage that assad had. you commit to no american troops on the ground and you can reverse this. the pre-syrian army is viable, strong and moderate. and anything that tells you anything different isn't telling you ut truth. we need to reverse the situation on the battlefield. russian weapons and arraignian
weapons are pouring in. >> i've got to leave it there. but at this moment, do you have confidence that this resolution will pass? >> say that again. >> do you have confidence that this will ultimately pass the congress? >> i hope -- i hope so. but it's got to be a resolution that will achieve the goals that i just described. and if it doesn't, then obviously then i can't support it. >> senator john mccain, always good to get your perspective. thank you. >> and natalie is here with new details on how and why the u.s. government is now monitoring a key ally. >> paying just as much attention to pakistan as it does to al qaeda and arain. this court reporter a new report to the washington post. it shows that the united states has ramped up its surveillance of pakistan's nuclear arms. according to the report the
document was provided by intelligence leaker edward snow deposit. dennis rodman is back in north korea for the second time this year. he sfirs visited in mid-february. rodman is playing down speculation that his trip is aimed at freeing kenneth bay. a southwest airlines flights was forced to make an emergency landing after a plane hit a bird. it happened shortly after takeoff from north carolina. the crews shut down the affected engine, and immediately returned the flight to the airport. passengers were placed on other flights. and just in time for the morning commute, the new bay bridge in san francisco is open once again to traffic. a new east span of the bridge opened late last night. the $6.4 billion section took 1
$11 years to billion build. that span of the bay bridge was earthquake and was found to be unsafe after that. now to wall street and what is moving the market. >> natalie, good morning. wall street is watching the mobile phone industry which is quickly consolidating. microsoft buying know kia for $7 billion. two struggling companies to looking to combine old phones with old software. a megadeal for verizon too. it we want into the wireless business over a decade ago and is buying back half of the it for over $130 billion. the stock market is back in session and in the green this morning. severe weatherers are on alert. historically, september is the worst month for stocks.

in key west with the details. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, willie. coaches are always telling athletes that their mental game is just as important, maybe more important than their physical skill and nowhere is that more evident than today in diana nyad's incredible victory. this is what raw determination looks like. after 54 hours, 52 minutes, and 18 seconds of stroke after stroke after stroke, more than 110 miles, one stroke at a time. >> you should never ever give up. >> reporter: and at 64 years old, this is what triumph sounds like. >> we knew you were going to do it. we are so proud of you. >> reporter: and what inspiration means. >> you're never too old to chase your dreams. >> i'm going to find a goal, a dream and i'm going to do it too. >> reporter: her record breaking swim took two nights to complete
but was 35 years in the making. beginning with her first attempt in 1978. the begees were at the top of the charts but despite attempt after attempt plagued by strong currents, rough weather, sharks and painful jelly fish stings, she persisted. >> i'm not a quitter. >> reporter: this time she was ready with a new protective suit, a specially designed mask and a sting stopper cream. as she neared her goal i talked to her team by radio. >> can you believe that diana made it this far? >> unbelievable. we witnessed it ourselves and we can't believe it. >> reporter: and then finally to the cheers of a crowd waiting on the beach, the moment her supporters around the world had been waiting for. >> i love the journey. >> reporter: hours later she left the hospital, still sun burned, her lips and tongue
still swollen, diana nyad's spirit seems as resolute as the moment she set out from havana and swam into the record books. >> you can dream, you can be vital and in your prime. i may not look it right now but catch me on a good day, i'm in my prime. >> reporter: she told us this morning as she was taking the final strokes toward the beach, she was looking for a television camera because she wanted among the first words recorded when she came up on the shore to be never give up. clearly, she has taught all of us that, willie. >> kerry sanders in key west. thank you so much. joining us now diana nyad herself. good morning. congratulations. >> willie, thank you very much. >> i'm going to ask you about your emotions in just a minute but after 53 hours through jelly fish, sharks and rough seas, how are you feeling physically this morning? >> you know, i feel all right. it's amazing how the emotional
can lift the physical. i remember the feeling only too well. right here in key west the last few years not making it and i felt pretty beat up and sore and down and tired. but to see that beach and see those people and to come in with my intrepid crew, it just takes all the physical pain away. >> this dream was 35 years in the making. your first attempt was in 1978. what was different about the fifth attempt that didn't happen for you in the first four? >> well, number one, i had the jelly fish expert of the world with me. before we went out saying i hope we get lucky and make it through and the animals are the most deadly in the ocean. so she was there every minute diving around me saying they're not in the water right now. i also work with a prosthetics maker to make the mask to protect me from the jelly fish.
very difficult to swim in. i took in a lot of saltwater and now i have huge abrasions in the mouth from the mask rubbing. but, the jellyfish, i decided the resolve was so strong to make this swim, that i had to get through them. that's their world and i had to get through them. that was one big difference this time. >> for all the physical challenges you outlined this is an incredible mental test as well. 110 miles from cuba up to florida. what do you think about at mile 50 or mile 70? what keeps you going? >> you know, there are certain all marathon swimmers and mountain climbers and endurance -- extreme endurance people that have songs and chantings and countings but i'll tell you the truth, with all the experience i have, especially in this ocean, i didn't realize how much suffering there was going to be. it was very wavey. i got very lucky with the gulf stream.
it was going right where i was going so that stayed me. but the wind action was huge. the jelly fish mask made me take in a lot of saltwater. so sick as a dog and we couldn't -- my crew couldn't find anything for me to eat or drink that i could keep down. i was vomiting constantly almost throughout the whole 53 hours. >> wow. >> and you know, you don't have strength anymore. so i wasn't out there just kind of swimming and daydreaming like usual. i was dealing with a crisis. >> well, diana nyad you are officially super human. i don't think there's anybody else that could do this. you are so cool. you are such an inspiration and it's a thrill for us to talk to you this morning. congratulations. >> willie, thank you so much for talking with me. never give up. >> never give up. >> can we just do what we want to do. >> unbelievable. >> she is truly amazing. i cannot imagine, the grit, the
determination. it's amazing. you have interviewed her many times. >> exactly. i went down to key west on her third attempt and watching yesterday, watching her come in, i had tears in my eyes. all the people watching yesterday had tears in their eyes. it's a dream come true. >> 64 years old. >> proved everybody wrong. >> yeah, her method was never give up. you're never too old and it's always about the team. it's not an individual sport. what great messages. >> she is the personification of all of those values. it's amazing. coming up, we'll take a turn. what do you think of these choices? how 50 shades of grey fans are reacting to the actors that just landed the lead roles. >> and the painful fall out from one veteran reporters accidental encounter with a football on the sidelines, but first, this is "today" on nbc. ♪

activis, but what comes to mind when you think of alzheimer's disease? activists believelzheimer's has an imagine problem. >> it's a bummer of a disease you almost have to have the most fun charity event imaginable to counter act that weight in some way and make people excited about participating in it. >> i'm happy that i've been the face of this disease. >> reporter: as with magic johnson d hiv, michael j. fox and parkinsons, the hope is many more celebrities will ld their faces to the disease, like seth rogen and his wife, actress lauren miller whose mother was diagnosed at the age of 55. it can be brutal. i'm at that point in my life where my girlfriends are becoming best friends with their mothers and, you know, on sunday i fedy mom dinner. >> thank you for coming. it's not easy to get people to do this kind of thing. >> reporter: rogen and miller are raising awareness and money with their fund-raising event called hilarity for charity.
>> how do you talk to young people? >> we're making it part of a conversation. >> we raised over $400,000 here you guys. >> reporter: but that's a drop in the bucket. experts say $2 billion a year is needed for alzheimer research alone. >> alzheimer's certainly needs a significant increase and it's a matter of getng the greater public to be engaged and to be outraged, frankly. >> hiv aids activist wse grdmother had alzheimer's said the alzheimer's comnity needs to take a page from the hiv,ed as -- and aids community and turn up the eat. >> do you find in the alzheimer's community more accept pr acceptance perhaps?
>> yes, but it will take a long time to do that. >> alzheimer's is a devastating diase. >> like many others in the battle for money, republican senator susan collins who lost her grandfather and other relatives to the disease says congress must match the funding of the other big diseas. >> we spend less tha $500 million on research to find a means of preventing or treating or curing alzheimer's. that makes n sense at all. >> ccer at $6 billion a year made enormous progress. hiv/aids is $3 billi a year. we made enoous progress. 500 million, we're not going to make it. >> alzheimer's actist. >> how do u remarkethe disease? >> brain health. living a healthy life. is having a check up from the neck up as common and unlettening as a check up from the neck down. >> if i did a commercial
tomorrow and showed 5 or 6 people in their 50s showing i have alzheimer's, i am alzheimer's would be one way to say it's effecting this bubble and not off if the future. >> this is the most feared disease. we need to take that fear and turn it into engagement and action. >> it may come as a surprise but there's a national alzheimer's act signed in 2011 and it comes for discovering ways to prevent and treat alzheimer's by the year 2025 b b thateems like a far way off. >> let's get the conversation going a little more. let's bring in melissa. you are a pr ecutive and you lost your mom to alzheimer's. we don't need to think of the disease as hing an imagine problem but do you think there's an effor >> yeah, absolutely.
i think there is a negative stigma that surrounds this. often people think of it as a disease that old people get, but it's really not. it can affect younger people. and the caregivers of those who have the disease. a national stage can maybe help and change that negative image. >> first of all, you want early intervention. you want people to be aware for their own health. but you also need the research dollars. >> as you saw what aids gets, what cancer gets versus what a alzheimer's get. young people are going to take care of their parents. we have boomers coming of age. it is an issue for young people like melissa who lose their mothers. >> you mentioned maybe having a safe place. >> i think caregivers, grandchildren of people are affected and children of people like myself.
i was 17 when i first started to be affected by that. but i think that having a celebrity to kind of see that face. and a younger person who is saying they have been exposed to the disease will help to change the negative stigma. we can engage younger generations as well so socially connected. it would be amazing to have them lead the charge, change facebook and twitter purple for alzheimer's day. >> melissa, great to have your persian. >> hopefully it will make a huge distance. we will report all through the week on "today". trying to tell you what's out there. exercise. and new innovative programs. >> our conversation is really just beginning. thank you so much. appreciate it. and now we will send it over to willie. >> all right. savannah, thank you very much.

the magazines most memorable images and stories. >> good morning. kate upton is featured on this month's october issue. "vanity fair" has given the inside scoop on everything from hollywood to politics. in many ways it defined the era. >> "vanity fair" has been around for a century. perhaps the first magazine of its kind. from the hollywood elite to the newsmakers of the moment. >> kate upton was a perfect cover choice for the 100th anniversary. she's the girl of the moment. she's totally modern yet at the same time a throwback to an earlier era. >> kate upton is one of many "it" girls who has graced the cover of the magazine. >> annie lee was the person for the job is.

"vanity fair" wasn't around in the '50s and '60s. >> 1936, we took an extended leave of absence until 1983 when we came back. >> it has come a long way since with some of the most dramatic and celebrated images. 1991 demi moore appeared the cover like this. >> the demi moore pregnant cover is one of the most iconic ever. and demi after she had the baby appeared on the cover in nothing but body paint. madonna has been on the cover more times than anyone going back to the mid-80s. one of our biggest was post brad breakup with jennifer aniston. our three panelled covers of sometimes emerging stars and sometimes established stars. >> it may be star studded but go inside and you will get the scoop on everything from the economy to the royals. and this story revealed a man
behind "deep throat". >> when vanity first started in 1913, it was a place to tell the story of the age. and i think that's something 100 years later we still did. >> great job balancing the a list, hollywood inside story and the politics. it's an incredible journey for the magazine. >> congratulations to braden carter. >> somewhat of a paefrt. >> it's a great magazine. happy birthday to them. it hits news stands today. >> we were talking to maria shaoeufr about alzheimer's. you can submit questions. >> arianna grande on the plaza straight after your local news. plaza after your local news. ♪

c.j. likes to play with girl things and likes to be treed as a girl. use terms like gender creative and gender non-conforming. what does that mean for you. >> it all means he's a boy that doesn't golong with what society thinks a boy should be. he is a boy. he knows he's a boy. he likes his boy body b isn't comfortable with what society thinks a boy should be. >> take me back to the moment when you first realized that he was a little bit different than other boys his age. you talk about going to the barbie aisle. the pink aisle and he lit up. >> yeah he found a barbie in my oset. he came alive and his entire li we mark by before barbie and after barbie. i took him to the pink aisle which i had been hiding from him because we have boys so we went to the blue aisle and he just lit up. >> how have you been handling this as a dad. be real honest. has there ever been a moment
when you said i wish c.j. would pick up a baseball with me? >> to be honest, there's a lot of moments like that. there is an evolution process. we have grown leaps and bounds as parents, but there's days of frustration. but the biggest thing in all of this is love your child no matter what. we built a house, love and trust and safe environment and that's the most important thing that i can give to my kids. >> you can build a safe environment in a home but what you can't control is what happens when you go outside the house. i'm a father of a 6-year-old. going to first grade, one of my great fears is when she goes out and people start making fun of who she is or what she's wearing. how much do you think about that with c.j. >> i think about it every day. people can be rude and hav negative reactions to him.
he chooses to selfdit so he has a public personality and private personality but still he'll wear the gir shoes out and the girl socks and necklaces. so we're trying to raise him to be a strong confident person. and hopeor the best and then watch out for bullying and teasg. >> any concerns for yo lori, opening up like this publicly. you have identified him as perhaps gay. u said you don't know if he's fwa, maybe he's transgender. do you think he'll look out and say i wish my mom hadn't put all of that online where it lives forever? >> i was careful with everytng i did and all the choices i made and the's going to be no denying it. he's going to see every picture of him. you can tell that he is gender non-conforming and there's no shame. we're just hoping we can educate people about kids like c. >> he has a great big brother who looks after c.j. again,he book is raising my rainbow. it's a great story. thank you so much.

there? >> no, i didn't notice any swimmers, myself. i nev saw that. so you must have been seeing a different angle. i saw people cheering. >> and what's the song that you listen to over and ove that pushes you through this. you sing to yourself that pushes you through and makes you kee going. >> you kno al, i have a -- kind of a play list of 85 songs. the one that sort of really stirs me the most, at 2:00, 3:00, 4:00 in the morning is neil young t damage done. i spoke to him directly and h said the story about heroin addiction in new york city. that doesn't sound very insping. i said i know. but it's not the subject of the song. it's that eerie voice, hear it. >> yeah. >> we thought we would play it for you thismorning. >> thank you. i hear it on your air.
i hear that in my earand i sing it to myself at 3:00, or 4:00 in the morng and i'm in a whole -- i thought i saw the tajma hall. i can't eat. i can't go up on the land and they said there's noland. we're in the middle of the florida straights. i said no, and they said okay, okay, just keep swimming. >> that's vy fting for that, then. >> oh, wow. >> that would have been a severe wrong turn dian tell us a little bit abo the physical aspect of all of this? we talked about sharks, we talked about jelly fish stings. you did much better this time with those than in the past but also that sea ter,he salty sea water that you were essentially drinking as you swam. that had a big impact on yous well. >> it was the biggest this time. every time you go out there it's
something else. i will say it's sort of the ying and the yang. on the negative end i had this beautiful jelly fish mask. i'm sure you saw it and it allowed me. it's all silicone and even goes into the mouth so the deadly anims, they give a fatal sting couldn't get me. i always had a suit and i had gloves and i had booties. but i never could figure out how to breathe and protect the mouth. so they mad me this beautiful mask and it worked so i have to be happy and grateful but with the waves, we had bad weather in terms of wind and that made me swallow, as you puttingit, all kinds of sea water. i have deep lacerations all over the mouth. really painful. and but the ying and the yang, the good thing, the gulf stream
shined on us. it's always going in the wrong direction. it's always huge turbulence but for me it went north and i wen north with it. >> what was it, the fifth time diana and you mentioned the gulf stream and you mentioned weather but what was it that you think made it possible this time around? at got you over it? >> well, y know it's all of those factors outthere. yo can't control them but you have to have some intelligent answer to em. you hav to have solutions. the world's leading expert o the box jellyfish was literally with me throughout the night with the shark divers. she was in the water with her lamp and she had a net. she was literally scooping up jellyfish and telling me get over there. get the mask back on, you need it know even thoh you're swallowingaltwater and i started vomiting a lot because
of the saltwater. once you get in that situation yodon't want to eat any food. then you start losing stngth. then you start gettingcold. i'll tell you something, that first night, saturday night, those 13 hours were hell on earth. but i had angel with me. i had john bartlet, my navigator who is a genius and he has figured out the gulf stream. we got lucky with it but he also knew it and my whole team, 35 people, just rock. >> diana, given all that you have been through, i know you are getting back in the water relatively soon in october but it's a special benefit here for hurricane sandy relief; is that right? >> it is. i'm going to, along with my personal goals in life, my sort of cause is going to be we have this beautiful pool built by the olympic pool people. we're going to install it in harold square and i'm going to
swim for 48 hours and after the jellyfish in the ocean that will be a piece of cake. and next to me,nd i hope you three are going to be there, i'm going to, you know, invite all kinds of notable new yorkers to swim next to me and we're going to raise money for hurricane sandy. >> we'll come swim. >> right. now, okay you just made the public announcent. >> i want to see the speedo. >> no, not speedos. >> you're trying to raise money. >> al, we'll get them for you. >> ay. you might want to rethink that. >> amerares will pay for you ear speedos. >> we are such hug fans of yours. congratutions and we have signing ourselves up to swim with you. >> done. >> congrats. >> thank you, thank you. >> get some rest. you deserve it. >> she's the coolest. >> will do. she's got that enthusiasm and spirit after that.
