7:04 am
video tape even though you've seen the bodies -- >> think haven't finished. our soldiers in another area were attacked chemically. our soldiers went to the hospital with casualties because of chemical weapons. in the area where they saved the government use fd chemical weapons, we had slid yoe and only have pictures and allegations. we're not there. our no, sir o, our police our institutions don't exist. how can eye talk about what happened if you don't have evidence. we're not social media administration for government. we are the government that deals with reality. we have evidence. >> as you know secretary kerry has said p there's evidence rockets fired from a region controlled by your forces into a rooejen of control by the rebels. they have the evidence from satellite photographs of that.
7:05 am
they have the evidence of a message intercepted about chemical weapons and that soon thereafter other intercepted messages. secretary kerry has present odd what he concludes is conclusive evidence. >> he presented confidence and conviction. it's not about confidence. it's about confidence. russians have complete loi opposite oefd that chemical weapons were flown from area controlled. that reminds me p about what kerry said about the big lie that was said in front of the world on sat side. he said this is our evidence. he gives false evidence. in this case kerry didn't present any evidence. he talked about evidence and didn't f present anything nothing so far.
7:06 am
not single evidence. >> there's intense discussion about the thirngs we're the talking about in washington where if there's a strike hit will imnate from the united states decision to do this. what do you want to say in this very important week in america and in washington to the american people to members of congress to the president of the united states? p. >> i think the most important is say to the american people p the majority now don't want a war anywhere. the congress going to vote about this. i think the congress is elected by the people and should frent people. the first question she should ask themselves what do wars
7:07 am
give america? nothing. nothing to gain no economy gain no good reputation. therefore this is against interest of the united states. the war is going to support al qaeda and the same people that killed americans in 11 of september. the second thing they should ask and what they expect fixing to ask is evidence they have regarding the chemical story and allegations that they presented. up until the president were disappointed by their behavior hospital. we expected this administration different from bush's
7:08 am
administration. they are looking the same doctrine with different necessities. that's it. we expect something from this administration is not to be say we have evidence. we have to obey the international law p go back to security and united nation zblechlt second wlarks the f can you say to the president that believe os chemical weapons were used by this government that this will not happen again -- >> present what you have as evidence to the public. be transparent -- >> if he does? if he presents that evidence -- >> we can discuss the evidence he doesn't have. he didn't present it. kerry didn't have it. no one in administration has it. if they had it they would present to you. >> they have presented it to congress. >> nothing. >> they have shown the congress
7:09 am
they have from satellite, intercepted messages and alike -- >> nothing has been presented. >> they have presented to congress, sir. >> you're a reporter. get this evidence. show it to the public until your country. >> they presented it to the public -- you don't know what you're doing and plans of what you're doing to people in your own council. they're showing it to people that have to vote on authorization to strike. >> the president of power when he show the evidence it was false and forced. second you want know believe american evidence and don't believe indication we have. we live here. >> assad gave aye chilling warning when charlie asked what he kind of retaliation american interests could face if u.s.
7:10 am
launches a strike. >> will it be attacks against american bases in the middle east if there's an air strike? >> expect everything. expect everything. not necessarily through the government. the governments are not only player in this region. you have different party o different identities. you have everything in decision now. you have to expect that. >> tell me what you mean by expect everything. >> expect every action. >> including chemical fare? >> that depends if rebels or terrorists in this region por group have it. it could happen. i don't know. i'm not teller to tell you what's going to happen. >> we'dlike to know more. the american people would like to know if there's an attack what might be the rep cushions and who mooib engaged in those
7:11 am
rep cushions. >> before 11 is of september, i said to say that don't deal with terrorists as playing games. it's a different story. they're going to pay the price if you're not wise. there are going to be repercussion of dealing with it. nobody expected 11 of september. nobody expect it. it's an area where everything is on the brink of explosion. expect everything. >> we have much more analysis' head and more from charlie's intervooi in our next hour. watch the sbooir f intervoou without edits tonight on char live rose on pbs. in london secretary of state is responding to kerry's interview that the u.s. has no
7:12 am
evidence of them ordering chemical weapons. >> we know his regym gave orders to prepare for a chemical attack deployed sources and put them in the place this took place. we know by tracing it physically i have where the rockets came from and where they landed. it is no accident that they all came from regime controlled territory and all landed in opposition controlled or contested territory. o we know this. we know that within moments of them landing in that territory, the social media exploded with videos that we also know could not be contrived. we've done various means of ascertaining that through
7:13 am
technology check up. >> secretary kerry says assad can turn over the chemical weapons by the end of this week. >> with us now, john miller served in the director on the floor national intelligence office. good morning. >> good morning. >> there's a lotto talk about -- a lot to talk about in this intervoou with president assad and charlie rose. i want to ask about a question char loi posed to the president about will there be attacks in the middle east if there's a strooik by the u.s. president assad responded by saying "you should expect everything. not necessarily from the government. the government is not temperature only player in this region." charlie asked about chemical o warfare. what do they have? >> they have a service in military that should have o by now prepared target folders for
7:14 am
likely targets in the region and beyond. beyond their military you've got the soirks with the terrorist organization fighting in the streets of damascus and the suburbs against the rebels. they have capability. there's the wildcard of other states ooir ran who might decide to do something in support of syria or distract attention from nits other swooigss. you have plenty of wooild cards. >> we hear charlie ask about the stock pile of chemical weapons. president assad said we never said we don't have it. he denies the attack that killed 1400 of his own people and 400 children. what did you make of president assad's response? >> i think when the skbel jens analysts show up at the white
7:15 am
house to brief the president, he's going to ask the same questions. the analysis you're going to get. president assad, this is not his first rode yoe. he didn't fall off a turnip truck. he's playing to a number of audiences. his best intelligent source now is the newspapers. he is clearly read that the thing that is causing the white house trouble about getting approval from congress is the fear of retaliation. if you'll note through the charlie interview, he touches that nerve as many times he can. expect everything he says. frankly, you might look at hit an lit cli and say if he's struck in a punishment operation, we're going to hit you in limited strike. you know how much that hurts and you won't do it again. there's no upside to retaliate. he's escalate thanksgiving situation to limit.
7:16 am
right now we're in the propaganda phase. he's telling american f public if he you're woired about retaliation, i need to ban those worries. >> thank you very much. while the striegs lacks evidence of the attacks by the regime, it passes what he calls the common sense test. president barack obama gives a look at his tuesday night speech. he's fighting to gain support in congress. may jor garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. this is a pif toll week. many close to the include this. this will likely show what the president hopes to bring in his second term. there's the evidence where the white house is on capital you hill.
7:17 am
it's a common sense case that the regime launched this attack. they can't prove that. that's problem mat hick for the administration in brooefings. when they say it's common sense circumstantial case they may not vote to book this up until they see it. surprisingly they thought they could win in the senate. that's somewhat of an open question. eight democrats, as many as 12 way behind in the house thooil deal with it after the senate. as far as the senate lobbying is concerned, at the vice presidents's residence with republicans tuesday, he'll press his case. what about the message from the white house? as you said six net work interview miss including cbs and prime time address tuesday the president will yoouz every tool in his tool box. not to bring the new message to the american public t
7:18 am
administration is not going to change poll numbers, strikingly against striking the regime, they want to meet members face to face and persuade them. the white house tend to guess work that as hard as they can yuthds the intervoous and prime time address tomorrow. one other voice p former secretary of state hillary clinton will back military strikes the against testify rejooem. you can catch that tonight on cbs evening news. time to show you headlines from tarchd gloechblt the hartford cur rechbt says 18 people were hurt when an amusement ride stopped. riders slammed into each other at the oyster festival. 12 children and an adult went to the hospital with mooi nor injuries. a mechanical failure is to blame.

suspect but lawyer told him he could beat the charges if and when they came. >> maybe i would get a reduced sentence and maybe i would get on but i won't dishonor vince's memory by lying about what happened. >> franklin prosecuting attorney said it was highly unusual and his own lawyer was surprised. >> he confessed to a crime that he wasn't even indicted on. this was a completely unique situation. >> steve crane was a friend of the 61-year-old victim vincent canzani. >> this is the right thing to do. thing that's how vince would look at it. in fact, i think vince would be proud of that young man. >> of course vincent canzani can no locker speak for himself but the daughter called the video self-serving saying, quote, my family has not been helped at all by this video. nothing has changed for the better. and if anything it's only caused

7:38 am
hands up and face down. prince andrew held at gunpoint but police said nobody used anypulled any weapons or used any. he tersely replied somexpolice get it wrong and said i am grateful for the apology and look forward to a safe walk in the garden later. >> how would this have gone down? >> it wouldn't have gone down right at all. prince andrew krs himself a senior member of the royal family. hi would assume he has a high enough public profile to be recognized by everyone in the country let alone royal protection officers and security officers at bumming ham. >> reporter: just two days earlier a burglar managed to scale the gates after dark

couple days. in addition to talking to cbs, five other television network interviews today, the primetime address tomorrow night from the white house. white house aides tell us the goal is not to change the message or introduce anything new. the goal is to drive president's current message as aggressively as possible. white house aides also concede they don't expect the president to change the poll number thons question which still run lopsidedly against a military strike against syria. what they intend to do is use the president's advocacy today and tomorrow to convince members of congress who are on the fence or doubtful that it's the right thing to do to support the president. that's become more problematic in the senate this week than last week. about 8 to 12 senate democrats are no or leaning no. that could make it difficult for white house. a persuasive campaign for today and tomorrow is what the white house will hope is turning the tide

8:33 am
but bruno mars is from hawaii but he's got lots of hits. in his first tv interview when president obama asked congress to authorize the strike against syria. assad spoke with charlie rose on sunday. he asked the president how he's changed over the years and why many consider him to be a butcher. >> when i first interviewed you, there was talk of bashar al assad, he's the hope. that's not what they say anymore. >> who? >> people who write about you, talk about you, people who analyze syria and your regime. >> exactly. so the hope for american is different from the hope of syrians. for me i should be hope for syrian. neither american or french.
8:34 am
i'm president to help syrian people, so this question should start from the hope of the syrian people and if there's any change regarding that help we should ask the syrian people not anyone else in the world. >> but now they say, their words, a butcher. comparisons to the worst dictators to ever walk on the face of the earth, comparing you to them. using weapons that go beyond war fafrmt everything they could say bad about a dictator they're now saying about you. >> first of all, when you have a doctor who cut the leg to prevent the patient from the gangrene if you have to we i don't call him a butcher. we call him a doctor. we thank him for saving our
8:35 am
lives. when you have terrorism, you have war. when you have war, you always have innocent life that could be the victim of any war. >> tomorrow night president obama will outline his case on it. he face as skeptical public and divided congress. with us now, frank luntz. frank, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> in your estimation whierks is the president having such a difficult time rallying is support of the not only congress but the american people. >> think about it. for 50 years it has been the republicans who have been most likely to use military action and the democrats. now you're asking congress to reverse that. democrats are supporting it and republicans are opposing it. so i think there's a political dynamic here that nobody's talking about that people are making decisions on where they stand in washington not just
8:36 am
based on where their constituents stand but politics. the second part is i think the president is making a mistake by making it so much about him. in the end you have half americans, half republican. you've got to bring evan in it. >> is he staking a significant portion of his presidency on this debate? >> absolutely. and there are domestic issues we're facing ore the coming weeks, the debt deficit, sequester, potential government shutdown the government's health care plan. all of this is happening at exact employ the same time. he goes to the american people because he's such a good communicator. the problem is he waited too long. >> you just touched on the politics. can you say why you're saying that? >> yes. we've been doing focus projects all along. we've got more coming up. 70% of republicans oppose what the president is doing and i believe as a researcher that if
8:37 am
this had been george bush and dick cheney, republicans wo vuld been supportive of the military strike. conversely we see that they would have opposed it. i think politics is playing a major role. >> you see this new poll out of cnn this morning. if korng failing to pass a resolution, 71% oppose air strikes. the president is doing six interviews today and a prime time addressed on tuesday night because they would not win if it was held today. >> i believe that. and i believe he's having trouble in his own party. thing of that. you've got nancy pelosi on the house side trying to win those votes and she was one of the most vocal critics on the previousous poll assign iraq. it's almost like this is an ail tesh turn universe right now. the american people are more nervous about national security
8:38 am
today than they have been in a long long time. that's sectarianism what's happening in syria. at a time when they're so concerned about national security that's significant. >> it certainly is a full course press on the president's part. what does he need to say? what do the american people need to hear from him tomorrow night? >> they need to know it will make the situation even worsz than it is today and they need to know there's a light at the end of the tunnel. it has to have a paz tinge impact and the consequences wouldn't be worse than the strike. at this point they're nervous. >> who is the famous person? >> martin amoss. >> very quickly, assad's messaging, what did you think of that? >> i never heard him speak. the fact that cbs got that
8:39 am
interview is incredible. america looks at him and think, he is an evil guy. >> without question you say that. >> yes. 80%. neither the democrats or republicans in the house have made the case and it's been weeks since this has happened. we expect a response immediately. >> frank luntz, thank you. and tonight for if first time two women will co-anchor ran national television program. gwen ifill and judy woodruff will take over the helm of pbs's "newshour." it comes with washington debating a military strike. later later i fill sat down with them. >> charlie rose has interviewed the president of syria, bashar al assad, who is accused of
8:40 am
killing some 1,500 of his own people. many of them children, more than 400 children and he's completely denying that he had anything to do with this chemical weapons attack. do you think that changes the debate? >> i think it's great he got it. but we're not surprised he's saying it. i think we would be stunned if he acknowledged he was behind what happened to those civilians a few weeks ago. >> i don't think it changes everything. i think it changes syria. >> plus the people who are worried about the war are not fond of bashar al assad. >> gwen i fell and judy woodruff took over the "newshour" at a time as the u.s. prepares for
8:41 am
