7:08 am
and the region to protect u.s. embassy personnel here. more than 100 are already here to help secure the $700 million fortress, the size of 80 football fields built to withstand attacks. the president is also considering sending up to 100 u.s. special forces to help advise iraqi troops. with numerous iraqi cities captured, the president keeping all options open. a u.s. warship now on the move equipped with five os pray, tilt rotor aircraft to be used in any evacuation. but in the u.s. decides to attack more options. an aircraft carrier in the persian gulf capable of launching 40 fighter jets to strike isis militants. there are also two additional u.s. warships nearby able to launch cruise missiles. and the u.s. still considering further talks with iran about how to push the militants back, but this would not involve any

7:10 am
full-scale u.s. bombing campaign against militanting its in northern iraq. expecting a decision from the president on this quite soon, george. meanwhile, as you heard martha report, the president's already notified congress he is sending 275 troops to the region to defend the embassy so we are already seeing the flow of u.s. forces back into iraq. but the white house is saying over and over again, this is not for combat. these will not be combat troops. >> and the white house also talking about working with iran who has been an adversary. what might that look like? >> reporter: well, the way the white house looks at this is that iran is the one force in the region that has influence with the government of prime minister maliki so what the u.s. is asking iran to do and hoping iran will do is to pressure maliki to do some political reconciliation at the heart of this whole problem. >> okay, jon, thanks, the decision soon but not likely today. >> okay there, george. now to the world cup and that thrilling victory for team usa, avenging loss to ghana in the last two world cups and

7:14 am
in the last two world cups to ghana. boy were you right. >> to a certain extent they are different but when i look at this game it was awesome. was it progressive? was it new? absolutely not but i don't care. it was traditional. it was american in that the u.s. didn't have a lot of possession. they defended like ban chis. they relied on set pieces. jozy altidore going down. clint dempsey breaking his nose and in that sense for me it was beautiful. they got three points against a team that played better than them, but that's the only thing that matters is they got three points so, yes, for me it was a beautiful performance. you don't get to tell me what a beautiful woman is. you don't get to tell me what a beautiful song is or what a beautiful wine, i go et to decide and that was a beautiful performance. that was america. >> ah, i love -- what's not to love about you, alexei. let's talk a little bit more about the group. they have portugal that they'll play on sunday. just tell us a little bit about
7:15 am
that matchup. >> well, look, portugal is a great team. we know about cristiano ronaldo, the fact that portugal went out in their first game and got shellacked by germany. it could come down to the goal differential. there were a few injuries and a red card for portugal so they'll be missing some of their key players but i tell you what, i think we'll see a better performance from the u.s. in terms of possession against portugal but just because you beat ghana doesn't mean you've gotten through the group and have to figure out a way to beat a very good portugal team and have a good performance and a better performance against portugal. >> this has to give them confidence, alexei. >> absolutely, absolutely. how about john brooks? if you had told me, i don't know, a couple months ago john brooks would be on the team yet alone score that goal i would have told you crazy but that's what the cord cup is about. it can change your life and did for john last night. >> he had a dream about it. we'll talk to him later. alexei, enjoy your day there. thanks for stopping by. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> all right, espn has a triple
