response threat. in a few momenting i'm going to be speaking with a reporter on the ground. let me bring in christopher dicky and former ambassador to nato. thank you for being with me. i want to get back to christopher immediately. i want to get to the ambassador first. let's talk about the cease-fire agreement. what is it going to take stick? what does mean? >> well, we'll have to see the details which haven't really been announced yet. i have a question how is russia going to sign on a size fire deal when the forces deny they're firing on the ukrainians. that's the real question. i think what president poroshenko is trying to do is gain time. his forces are losing quite a bit of territory. >> this is such an important
point, christopher. russia has said the fingerprints aren't mine. i have nothing do with this. now they're agreeing to a cease-fire. it's a slight invasion here. they do one thing there and something else down here. and just like they're signing a cease-fire and attacking. so can they be trusted? there's a simple answer, absolutely not. the question is how much coerce can be brought to bear on them. not just are they promising to do things but actually fulfill the promises? i don't think we're close to the point yet. i think it's so important to putin. i think he believes if he does not achieve his goals in ukraine, keeping crimea and also coopting the east and south of the country, he will be in political trouble himself. >> and you talk about ground zer owe for a lot of fighting. and we have a reporter there now with the latest. dot clashes continue, keir?
>> since that announcement was made that a cease-fire would be signed, we have not heard artillery fire. we were hearing it over and over again. thunderous explosions in the distance from me here. if i explain and step out the way. down the road is the ukrainian jet point. you can see on the road that the ukrainians are moving their troops and armory quite consistently a lot in the last hour. we saw a number of tanks heading back down the road armored personnel carriers heading further up. we don't know why. but we know that apart from small arms fire we heard about 20 minutes ago, it doesn't appear to have been any fighting. there appears to be a lull in the fighting. pro-russian forcing, jose, are a short distance further down the road. they have been attacking this
ukrainian check point, this ukrainian position for quite some time now over the last 24 hours. we think they may have been trying to push into the city of marry pole which is a little way there. not far up it. whether or not they will be able to achieve it before the cease-fire. whether the cease-fire will stick is the question. >> i want do you standby, keir. you are in ground zero. i want to bring in the ambassador. russ russia's responsibility seems to be clear. they are willing to do something they said they were not a part of to begin with. what is the future? can we expect anything real to situation here as the situation in mariupol continues to be? >> i think everybody would have the war ended. there's a lot of people that are getting hurt and killed. we hope we can go back to the situation which the fighting as
ended and we can enter a political process. but, you know, we have to be skeptical here. nato officials are quoted today in the financial times saying that there are now more russian soldiers in eastern ukraine than separatist fighters. that's the reality. it's a russian invasion of ukraine. and the deal signed by the ukrainian government and the separatist forces that does not include russia is, frankly, not a deal that is, i think, worth the paper it's signed on. >> what is it going to take for the world to say what the ambassador said? to deal with the reality. not real politics or any other things. there are invasions and encouragement. everybody knows russia could invade ukraine in a classic blitzkrieg.
we don't want that to happen. everybody is making excuses for this incursion. if you go ahead and press and say this is an invasion, this is an invasion. we know putin well enough to know his response is you want an invasion? i'll give you an invasion. i want to bring you into another issue. another hot spot, another focus of the world. new developments from nato in confronting the islamic terrorist group isis. they urged nato nations to form a core coalition to target isis in iraq. kerry ruled out boots on the ground in iraq. ben rhodes said the administration is not ruling out u.s. ground troops when it comes to fighting the issue in syria. take a listen. >> can you do it in syria without boots on the ground? >> we're looking what is going to be necessary. we said clearly you need a strategy on both sides of the border. it's an organization that operates with respect respect for borders. >> you're not ruling it out? >> we're not ruling it out.
>> i think this is important. this is important because forever there will be no u.s. boots on the ground scenic -- seems to be rolling back a little bit. >> i think what the administration is discovering it cannot create a situation where it says we fly over head and you guys, you turks or saudis or brit and australians you go in. everybody is like no you put together a coalition. you have to be a part of it on the air and in the ground. we don't want to say flatly absolutely no boots on the ground. >> what do you think can deal with isis in syria. while they control territory in iraq. clearly the nucleus, the base seems to be in sir yap. >> that's right. you have to go after them in syria. but go after them and hold the ground if you take it. the question is how do you not bomb them out of one city or another. that can be done but it would be bloody. once you get moving and out of territory how do you hold on to
the territory without boots on the ground? >> you don't and can't. >> did the president accomplish what he set out to do during the trip? >> i think the most important thing he set out to do was reissue all the nato allies it's a strong united alliance that is willing and able to defend all of nato territory. that's what he set out to do in estonia. i think nato made a number of important decisions to bolster the capacity of the alliance to defend nato territory. at the same time, sending a message to russia that whatever they may be doing in ukraine, don't even think about doing in estonia or latvia, or lithuania. the mighty armed forces of the united states will be involved. >> gentlemjentd lmlman, thank y. msnbc will have complete coverage of president obama's news conference coming up at 11: 30 a.m. eastern time.
and president obama will be chuck todd's first guest coming up this sunday on "meet the press" an interview never more timely. while we keep an eye on the hot spot oversea, the set back at home from the job market. and the week weakest job reports in 8 monthst. 142,000 jobs were added it's well below the expectations of 120,000. the unemployment rate edged lower. more people gave up looking for work. if you break it down by race african-american have the highest jobless rate 11.4% followed by latinos at 7.5%. let's bring in cnbc mandy dreary. good to see you. we had six straight months of strong job growth. what happened? >> it was a disappointment, jose. after the string of good numbers. it did break the momentum in terms of the headline number. however, if we take a look at
the last three augusts, they have been kind of disappointing. maybe it's just an august thing. also, remember, the number could be revised higher. don't red too much into the headline number we got today. but what the interesting thing is here. it doesn't jell with all the other economic indicators that we have been getting recently like on manufacturers and various other things. and generally coming in very well. in many cases better than expected. we did see immediately, jose? was u.s. treasury yields immediately dropping on that fewer jobs than expected. because it's not that, you know, one report were necessarily change the trajectory of future u.s. monetary policy. it suggests that the fed doesn't have to be in a huge rush to raise interest rates. >> and wall street has been going loco over the last couple of weeks. they've been doing very well. how are they reacting? >> we've been hitting record highs and weeks before. today we're down for the s&p, dow, and nasdaq. but, you know, i haven't seen
anything commentary it's necessarily a negative for the stock market. if anything, it's kind of when it's bad news for the economy is good news for the stock market. it may add to the boom case for stocks on the prospective of lower rates. in terms of other reaction on wall street, the green beck was at the 14-month high and on the trend for eight straight week of gains. it could take a little wind out of the sail of the u.s. dollar. >> thank you so much for being with us this morning. appreciate your time. coming up, the third american infected with ebola in africa is now in nebraska where he's going to be treated. we'll gate live update from the hospital. plus, a new york city clinic under investigation for a procedure done on joan rivers before her death. as tributes pour in for the woman that broke so many barr r barriers and made so many laugh. you love this game.

developing news out of nebraska. the third american infected with ebola in western africa being treated inside a special isolation unit at medical center in omaha. 51-year-old rick sacra arrived this morning. the medical staff there is scheduled to hold a news conference with an update on his condition at noon eastern time. nbc is outside the hospital with the latest. sara, good morning. what do we know? >> reporter: well, good morning, jose. we know the dr. sacra lived ahead of schedule. he's being evaluated as the doctors determine the course of treatment. it's a different course from
that of the two american missionaries who were treated in atlanta earlier this summer. because there's no more of that drug they were given. that zmapp. the company said it's going to take some time to make new drug. instead doctors are considering using a blood serum from another patient who survived ebola or possibly some anti-virals up until now have only been tested on primate. for the moment it's supportive care keeping him hydrated, maintaining blood pressure and things like that. hopefully he'll get a mental boost. he should be able to speak with via video conference system. we're waiting for an updated word on his condition. we're expecting that hear 11:00 a.m. local time. noon eastern. >> any time you hear there's going to be a new experimental drug or serum used on him that weren't used on the other two. i'm thinking, first of all, do
we know when he got ebola, how he got it, and how long ago? >> well, that's a good question. because he wasn't directly treating ebola patients. he was working in the maternity ward. he made the choice to go to after can after these two other american missionaries got sick. his wife talked about it at the previous press conference saying he didn't feel that expected mothers should be without the care they needed during this crisis. he felt it was part of his calling to go down there and to assist. he developed that shortly after arriving. we're told that he is in fairly good shape. he was able to walk on the plane in africa under his own power. however, you know, medical professionals caution it's a long flight and a lot can change. it's an unpredictable illness. >> the fact he got it after the other two patients, it shows he got it relatively recently.
and good care can make the difference between life and death for so many who don't have good care early on. 70% of the patients that end up get it end up dying. >> that's correct. the early care is key. hydration,ive, saline likes that can make a huge difference. especially at the beginning. as for the zmapp. they can't say definitively that changed the course of the illness for nancy writebol and dr. kent brantly. it seemed to have a profound effect on their recovery. you know, dr. brantly, before he got on the plane in africa, was supposedly doing very badly. then, you know, we saw him earlier this summer walk off the ambulance in atlanta into that specialty isolation unit. both of the patients have since been released from the hospital. they have spoken to nbc to matt lauer talking about their experience. dr. brantly saying he'll go back to serving medical mission. he doesn't fear treating people
with the very scary illnesses to those who haven't been around it and haven't experienced it. >> thank you so much for your time, sara. funeral services for legendary actress and comedian joan rivers are set for this sunday in new york city. the trail blazing 81-year-old died yesterday at new york's mount sinai hospital. he was rushed to after she stopped breathing during a procedure on her throat. you're looking a the live picture of river's star on the hollywood walk of fame. a pile of candles is continuing to grow. the clinic where rivers is having the procedure done is being investigated. richard lui is live outside rivers' manhattan apartment this morning. good morning. we're seeing a little bit of move. >> reporter: good morning. throughout the last 24 hours, it's about celebrating her life. right now we're getting word from the nypd who is here.
they cordoned off an area. they expect melissa rivers to come out and leave. they want to make sure she has a clear path. there's been some activity, not a lot. what some people are looking at at the moment. so had many have loved and enjoyed her work. what is the latest with the investigations? and the medical examiner will be looking into how she died. we have the health department, which look at the circumstances relate talked to her death specifically. there's no suspected wrong doing. these are routine investigations. it's part of the process right now. here as we are looking at the front of her home, very busy in the last five minutes. >> yeah. we're going to be looking at rivers' extraordinary career. a lot of people think of her as a comedian. she was a trailblazer. she broke so mabarriers as a won in an era where excecomedians w simply not women and how she was able to live her life. the question i have, what is someone who is advanced in age,
81 years old, doing in a clinic, you know, outpatient kind of care when she's got to go under for whatever procedure she has to go to. it seems like it should be in a hospital for something like that. >> this was a routine procedure as we have been told. that's why the medical examiner could be looking into it. it's routine. when she was brought to the mount sinai the same thursday to friday. she was in critical condition. we learned, of course, within the last three days she was on life support and moved from icu to her private room. what we've been hearing from most people, even right there. you were looking at live pictures coming from the west coast on the walk of fame in hollywood. right here in front of us is that parallel, if you will, within the last 24 hours. we've seen two to three dozen flowers and remembrances, messages. this one saying i love you, joan. you will forever make me laugh.
this one saying with lots of love. joan rivers, thank you for the laughs. everybody here, jose, thinking about remembering her in a positive way. >> yeah. richard lui, thank you so much for being with us. appreciate your time. we'll have more on the life and legacy of joan rivers coming up in this show. coming up in just a few seconds a childhood class mate of stephen sotloff. she'll be here to discuss their childhood in miami. and steven sotloff's commitment, love, and respect for his jewish faith. i am so nervous right now, it's not even funny. oh my gosh... driver 1 you ready? yeah! go!

florida's governor ordered flags to be flown at half-staff throughout the state. i want to bring in daniel. a class mate of steven sotloff. thank you so much for your time. i know, this is not an easy thing to talk about. i also know you hadn't seen steven in more than 15 years. you corresponded with him some years ago. you say he was a, quote, searching, sensitive, inquisitive soul and hero. share with us how you remember steven. >> very early on in childhood as being an incredibly vivacious personality. he was so full of joy and light. he was very playful. he was a little bit mist vows. he was a boundary pusher. he wanted to see what was behind closed doors. it was in him in a young age the intense curiosity and the
willingness to push past boundaries. >> when you spoke with him a few years ago, what was the communication you had? >> it was always really friendly and warm. i mean, when he would write he would say hey, buddy! so sweet and friendly. mostly what we talked about was our journalism. he would send me stories and i was send him stories i was writing about hollywood. i think he got a fact that i was writing for a jewish newspaper. that was obviously something so dear to his heart. i think it's probably wuch of the reasons that he reached out after so many years to say hi. >> it's interesting for so many journalists. it's a sacred vocation. principles of religious principles no doubt, had a very big part in his life and in his haer heart. when you think of that and how he ended in a dig i nifiedignif.
strong, looking in the eye and never faltering, you know, how do you think of him? and i see him from a distance, i never met him. i see such a strength there >>well, i think one of the beautiful things about steven is that because he crgrew up with religious jewish education, that's where we went to school together. the foundational narrative of the jewish tradition is the exodus story. it's a story of people going from slavery to freedom, from darkness to light. i think it was through the lens he viewed the world. when he travelled to the dangerous places his interest was shining a light on injustice. i think the work he did in his journalism was so much about giving voice to the ordinary people who were suffering and helping them to realize some of their dignity whenever they
were. >> and nathan wrote when he was in the depth of the deepest dungeons in the soviet union and he heard someone cared about him, that was all he needed to continue fighting. steven's mom is a daughter of a holocaust survivor. she was a teacher at the school you attended. talk to me about the jewish community in miami and the community you and steven grew up in with the deep knowledge of what you need to never forget >>well, i think every jew that is alive today grows up with a profound sense of connection to the holocaust. we study it in school, we read books wi books, we watch movies. it's become into graegrated int culture when you have the personal connection and family members that were survivors, it
it hads you in an incredibly visceral way and shapes the way you see the world. one of the beautiful lessons that came out the holocaust is you have to live and you have to respond to pain and evil and injustice with life and determination and i think so much of what steven was doing was about really lifting people up and helping to bring more dignity and more light into the world. >> regardless of who they were. i keep thinking, you know, two of the three americans who have been decapitate. he was able to hide the fact he was jewish. he never turning his back on his principles in his religion. >> one of the beautiful things i read, i can't remember where i read it. but one of the journalists that was describing the way that they were able to conceal his jewish and, of course, israeli identity
described it as a bond of silence. and that so many people were just so invested in protecting him that from governments to journalists to family to friend, you name it. everyone was willing to protect him. and do whatever it took. because they knew he was in such a dangerous place. i think it's a testament to the community that we grew up in. a tight knit close community in miami. so i know there was just a deep passion and a deep concern for him and a willingness to do whatever it takes. and, by the way, that's a jewish value. you can break almost any rule in jewish law to preserve a life and to save a life. >> i was looking at the picture the two of you as little kids at school. you look lovely with a bow on your head there. >> thank you. >> one of the things i think about is how south florida really does come together and
the different communities and different i don't know religions and principles. the final analysis everybody wants to support each other. >> well, you know, i think that's a beautiful message. and i know you have a south florida history yourself. as do i. i think that amazing message and all of this and, you know, a lot of people have asked, you know, with steven why was steven so interested in islam? and i think it's because steven had such an openness. he saw the beauty in every human being. to have a jewish coachness at your core is to believe in the phrase. it says in the torah that every human being is created in the image of god. i think when steven looked at all of these people all over the world and looked into their faces and wanted to tell their stories he was seeing godliness in all of them. >> if you work toward helping one person it's as if you work
toward helping humanity. thank you. and i want to focus in more on the terrorists who kill eed sotloff and the other reporter as well. i'm joined by ayman mohyeldin. good to see you in person. >> thank you very much. before he was killed steven and foley read some message about american foreign policy, et. cetera. why would they do that when they knew that as sotloff said, you know why i'm on tape now. >> in situations like that, the killers, the terrorists are probably telling them if you want to have a chance at living, you have to read this statement. >> even if you see your colleagues being killed? >> i think in a moment of -- desperation moment like that you will do anything to survive. your inincidestincts to want to would probably kick in. that's probably when they were
put under. i can't imagine any of the comments were made at their own will by their own will. >> it's so difficult to put ourselves, regardless of how much we've covered. you've done some extraordinary reporting in gaza to put yourself in those shoes at that moment facing that reality. and, ayman, there are a lot of people held by isis as we speak. >> absolutely. we know there are a few other americans. there are definitely there's another british national which we won't name who appeared in the video. there are other westerners. in addition to that, hundreds if not maybe thousand of syrians, iraqis, muslims, and arabs in the hands of various groups. >> we have breaking news right now. we learned that u.s. air strikes in somalia hit the target of 111 11 leaders.
>> it's an important attack. they've been a major force for destabilizing somalia for nearly the past decade. they're not a transnational organization. they're not like isis or al qaeda. they es spouse that ideology and perhaps had regional aspirations within the horn africa. taking out the leader few others in what seems to be a high profile meeting. it's a strategic setback as well as a symbolic setback. the sill boymbolism, no matter long it takes or how many tries it took us we will hunt down those carrying out the attacks that are killing americans or being a force for evil in their regions. >> ayman, so good to see you, my friend. >> thank you so much. coming up the woman who called the president the deporter in chief the head of the largest latino organization

the presidents returns to washington tonight where he's facing some major decisions on umm gracious. for the first time some big name senatored in his own party are explicitly and publicly telling him to hold off on acting for now. senate democrats like bill nelson and al franken tell the president he should not act this summer despite his previous statements in june he would do so. what about the statement? dreamers saying our community is done with broken promises. it brings us to our next guest who sent shock waves through the u.s. the president and ceo of national council of the largest
national civil rights and advocacy organization is with me this morning. >> nice to see you, jose. >> your comment had a huge impact on the president. before that, you know, immigration was a wait and see approach just on the house of representatives. made the promise at the end of the summer he would do something on immigration. what do you expect? >> well, we as a community, expect him to fulfill his promises. and i have to tell you that it was over a year ago that the senate passed their comprehensive immigration bill. and speaker boehner told our community, wait, the republicans will put a bill together and we'll get it through. and then nothing happened. the president in march when we asked him to take administrative action asked us to wait because there was still going to be a chance for some legislative action. and we waited then.
now there are some senate democrats who are asking us wait again. we're done waiting. we've waited long enough. every day that we wait 1100 lives are shattered as a result of deportation and separation that is occurring. not just with an impact on those individuals, but on their u.s. citizens spouses and u.s. citizens children. we have seen devastation in our community. the time for waiting has come and gone. we need to see action now. >> the reality is you said a few minutes ago is that the house of representatives had movement. small movement by partisan to try to get some immigration reform deal done. that was not possible. they blew it up, the republicans did. why is it the responsibility of the executive to deal with issues that the legislature needs to do by law? it's their -- it's in their
court. >> it is in their court. and frankly, the house republican -- and there will be accountability, i think we'll see the accountability play out in 2016. for now what is important is the fact that we know that the president has legal authority to step in and act. that's what we have to look to today. that's what we're expecting. and we need them to do what he says he would do. and act. >> what do you i had he could and should do? >> there's a lot of different opportunities for him to act within the law, and i think there have been different proposals we've been reviewing. anywhere between 3 to 8 million
people could be served by an administrative action. and for us, we want to see him exercise the full authority he has to provide relief for these individuals and the opportunity to be able to leverage economic revenues and provide work permits for the individuals. what we have seen there are legal authorities here for him to be able to do that. >> and janet, it seems to me, there's also the possibility of really rearranging the priority on who gets deported and why. because i think the undocumented community is the first one that wants to see deportation of criminals, rapists, of people who drive drunk and kill other people. criminals should be deported. it seems as though they're here and a lot of deportation are of
people that have children, grandchildren. >> what we're encouraging the president to do is more exercise the prosecutorial discretion you're talking about. we have limited resources. they should be targeting higher priority individuals. those who have committed criminal acts and look to those landscapers and bottle washers and other votes who are providing important services and trying to make sure they're providing for their families. those folks should not be targeted. and that is an option that the president has on the table. that's what we're hoping to see. because community is really frustrated and wants to see the president do what he said he could. that's what we're asking for. >> janet, a pleasure to see you. coming up a red state

you need to -- >> what does that mean? >> southern frided. >> i want definition. >> we were talking about food right before. i think in the red states you have someone like pryor who is running. it's not very -- obama lost the state. you need to lost the state. and obama lost the state when he ran for president. it's not very popular. especially with the approval ratings to go down. some of these are neck and neck like pryor and tom cotton. that's neck and neck. it's within two points. you have mcconnell against grie grimes. >> and hagan. there's a peck on the cheek after criticizing his policies saying she doesn't think he should act alone on immigration. is that a positive way of campaigning?
>> her good opponent, the house speaker who is unpopular right now was on the tarmac. while he did not kiss the president he did shake his hand. i find it utterly fascinating the republican would show up on a north carolina tarmac to greet the president of the united states whose approval ratings are in the tank in north carolina as well. this is simple. hagan will beat him up when she needs to. she'll love him when she needs to. she hopes like heck the black vote will get out. same for landrieu and pryor. mcconnell should not be where he is right now and he is. that's a problem. that has nothing to do with barack obama. >> i want your thought the. sorry to switch the subject on you. jeb bush, there's talk he's maybe considering running. >> yes bush is someone to look at. bush could bridge a gap with a lot of moderates. i know, you're looking at me.
but jeb bush is someone to look at. and bush is a strong leader and i think someone that can bridge a gap. >> a lot of weight on it. >> look at clinton and bush. we can see it all over again. >> can could you imagine? we could have an hour on that. >> three hours. >> i love you guys. thank you for being with us. and coming up, we'll remember joan rivers in our own special tribute in today's five things. ♪ fill their bowl with the meaty tastes they're looking for, with friskies grillers. tender meaty pieces and crunchy bites. in delicious chicken, beef, turkey, and garden veggie flavors. friskies grillers. i am so noh my gosh...now, it's not even funny. driver 1 you ready? yeah!
