tv   CNN Newsroom With Deborah Feyerick  CNN  June 22, 2014 2:00pm-3:01pm PDT

2:00 pm
i'm deborah feyerick, in for don lemon. the u.s. men's soccer team 60 minutes away from portugal at the world cup from rio de janeiro, chicago, all points in between. soccer fans can't wait. portugal looking to bounce back from a huge loss. the u.s., hoping to build on a big win in its first game. reporters are live across the u.s. and brazil and have all of your story lines coming up in 30 minutes. first, our top stories. well, there is no easy way to say it, iraq is in big trouble and it is getting worse every day. very large group of well-armed militant fighters sweeping across the country, taking control of towns, cities, killing, executing people who stand up against them. look at this map. every red spot that you see is a place that the iraqi government is no longer in charge.
2:01 pm
no iraqi police, no troops. this map changes every few hours. that's how moving this situation is. more red spots, more towns fall. new video shows the town of rch aula, the person that shot the video says smoke is coming from the police station overrun by isis militants and then set on fire. in baghdad, iraqis with their own weapons are in the streets saying they are ready to fight if isis militant extremists make a move on the city. these are the people who tell cnn's nick robertson, they're looking forward to the arrival of the americans, the time lean of the deployment, no clearer today than it was yesterday. the word from the pentagon, still is soon. live to baghdad, and nic robertson in a minute. i want to talk to our chief
2:02 pm
national security correspondent jim sciutto in jordan. a man who commanded the marine division during the iraq war, james williams. general williams, you're a straight talking man. what is the first element of american advisers? what are they going into? they've got to assess the situation but now you have shias who are marching in baghdad and they're ready to confront isis, the sunnis. >> well, you know, first of all, they're going to have to make contact with the military government in terms of working with the ministry of defense. they'll have to be assigned to various units of the iraqi army and make an assessment of the situation. remember, they're in an advisement role. in this advisement role, they're not going to be in direct combat but they're going to direct the individual iraqi army elements on how to resolve their issues
2:03 pm
from a military perspective. >> you know, general, you talk about the iraqi army. but now you've got the shiite forces and also sunni of isis, iraq, various tribes that are now following this. how is the iraqi army the one who is ultimately going to gain control of this situation with possibly american help? >> well, you know, i think this is the difficulty, you know. in es spensence, the challenge this faction of sunnis and a faction of the iraqi government representing the shia sect of islam and essentially what i believe you have is this clash of civilizations. as such, with the clash that's going on, efforts being made by the secretary of state to talk diplomatically to countries in the region to help because it's going to take cairo, it's going
2:04 pm
to take riyadh and it's going to take tehran. as you know, we have a -- we have difficulty talking with tehran. one of our challenges is, if you're going to solve this, you have to get the principal countries that are involved on the sunni side of the world and those pretty much in tehran as on the she. >> reporter: side of the world to resolve this. >> jim sciutto, you're in jordan where secretary of state kerry is today. he's been looking very closely at this growing crisis. look, it's pulling a lot of din elements together, because as the general said you don't just have iraq you have iran who could possibly become involved and russian president putin is supporting the iraqi government. it seems like there's a singular galvanizing issue and that is to stop isis, jim? >> that's exactly part of secretary kerry's message here.
2:05 pm
in effect, he has two messages to deliver. one, this is not just an iraqi problem though a grave threat to the state of iraq. it's a regional problem. it's a global problem. he's talking to the jordanians who are neighbors. as i speak to you, isis 70 miles off the border, speaking to egyptians saying this is a threat to regional stability but driving home the point when isis militants have a home basis, to train and stage attacks they'll threaten europe and the u.s., american homeland, worried about returning fighters from the battles carrying out attacks that far afield. the second is a sense of shared purpose, because this is a regional, international threat, all of these parties, the general was referring to, have to be involved in the solution even parts that don't play well together. iranians on the shia side, gulf countries on the nigh side and
2:06 pm
the relationship between u.s. and iran. his argument is that all of the countries have the same goal and that is stabilizing iraq because it is no one's interest to have a good part of the country under the control of militants as brutal as this. the trouble is, herding those cats to move towards that goal together. it's a lot of competing agendas, extreme diplomatic challenge for him. >> which is remarkable. one thing that has been made very clear, according to one newspaper report today, all of the various militias in this region one thing they don't want, they don't want american troops back in iraq, which is very interesting. willing to accept the americans in an advisory role but not in a fighting role. first, jim, is secretary kerry dealing with that? i'm going to ask you the same question, general. jim, you first, is that an issue for the secretary? >> well, it isn't for the
2:07 pm
administration. the president has made clear they will not be in a fighting role. they'll be in an advisory role with the goal of building iraqi capacity to respond to the threat. when iraqis on the ground who have bad memories of the u.s. occupation see american uniforms they might make a different judgment and say these are fighters, they're not advisers. but it's a small presence. they're not going to be in the feel. they're going to be at regional headquarters, so it seems, it's the administration's view, that would be a minimal risk. >> nic robertson now in baghdad with established communication wit him. nic, let me go to you. we saw these iraqi men, volunteers in the streets. these are shiites, these are men who support technically the existing government but they are also militias under al sadr. the men you saw today, do you get the feeling that they're going to defend baghdad or that they're going to march on these
2:08 pm
isis forces? >> i think that depends on what happens in the broader battle feel. these are men who will go into action if they're leader tells them to. this march and demonstration was for multiple effect, one, to send a message to isis and more broadly, to the sounnis that th shia are ready to defend themselves. a message to prime minister nuri al malaki as well, every one of them that we spoke to said malaki has done a bad job and he should go. let's not forget al sadr gets some direction from iran. is this an expression of iran's view at the moment? we heard from the top shia cleric in the country friday press, saying that malaki really needs to go, needs to be a new government, the new government shun create the mistakes of the past. a direct shot at nuri al malaki.
2:09 pm
this militia that we saw on the streets represents and how bad the sectarian fighting could get if isis was able to get to one of the important shrines. that would lead to really a massive outpouring of sectarian violence, which is exactly what isis wants. they want to get sunni recruits, that's how they do it. >> nic, before i let you go, some of the men, volunteers, in were answering the cleric's call to rally, volunteer. i saw some in uniforms. are these members who were part of the iraqi army who are now sort of switching to these militias? >> no, these are people in the militia before. sadr stood down his militia 2008. first time he's called them out
2:10 pm
on the streets you saw every shade of sort of the police part of the militia, the army part of the militia, a women's part of it a suicide bomber's part of it if you will, a roadside bomb maker's part of it a guy with the rock the launchers, guys with heavy artillery pieces, it was a big show after strength ands first time these guys have been put back on the streets in six or seven years now. >> it's really just from a u.s. perspective, fascinating to watch the dynamic going on between iraq, iran, syria, united states, and now russia. jim sciutto, nic robertson, general williams, we'll be bringing you back later on. thank you so much. have search teams been look for flight 370 in the wrong place? they could move to a new area to look for the missing airliner. police push back against a

2:14 pm
with millions of reviews, tripadvisor makes any destination better. two big developments on the disappearance of malaysia airlines flight 370. wednesday, almost four months after the 777 vanish with 239 people aboard, authorities plan to announce they've pinpointed a new search area, close to the other areas na have been scoured but after re-evaluating satellite data, experts believe this could be where the missing airliner might be found. separately, also malaysian airline authorities are blasting a report which names the plane's captain as the prime suspect into the plane's disappearance. clive irvin, a scathing piece on
2:15 pm
malaysia's handling of the probe april london newspaper reporting that perhaps the captain may be behind the disaster. there are a lot of ifs in the report. it were human error, perhaps it's the captain. so they them carefully. but what are your thoughts? >> this is all part of a pattern we've seen going on over the last months in the story where the malaysians keep coming back to the idea of blaming the pilot, someone, we don't know who. where do the stories originate from? they're obscurely sourced. this is a problem with all of us trying to cover the story. once an allegation floats it gets picked up by people all over the world, multimedia picking up everything from a tweet to bloggers. >> sure. >> the story gets carried along by events which are very dubious, by statements, which are very dubious. there's a real public interest here in having better answers
2:16 pm
and i found it significant, for example, that the head of emirates airlines they fly more 777s than anyone else said two very important things. one, he was not satisfied with the forensic standards of the investigation that's been going on in malaysia but, two, he said for everyone to have achieved what was achieved in cutting off communications, the three basic systems of communications between this plane and the ground, anyone to be able to do that they had to have more skills and more training than any of his pilots had. so if the man who runs the airline which flies the most 777s in the world says that, you have to be doubtful about whether a captain of malaysia airlines would be any more skilled than the pilots of emirates airline. >> where -- you have written a scathing article -- where do you think -- again, people are saying where are we in the investigation? what do we know? what is the most plausible other likely scenario what happened given it's been months, you're had time to digest everything
2:17 pm
that's happened. what do you think, as an expert on this in. >> ai am looking for, what is it that we don't know that we could know? we seem to be accepting an idea we don't know anything until a piece of the plane is found. that's not true. this is another side of the investigation which is different than looking for pieces of the plane it's to do with the investigation of the hours leading up to the plane leaving the gate, to do with security around the plane, the screening of the panes who got on the plane. one of the key things, the story said it was the malaysia police investigating, the police investigation. somehow going to be related to the passengers, if it's a police investigation. the profiling of passengers becomes important. who amongst those passengers would have had the kind of technical skills, say if we accept the scenario posed by emirates airlines that someone got on -- >> shut off --
2:18 pm
>> someone got into the cockpit if you look through the list, you're looking for a narrow feel of people, a combination of rare technical skills. >> it's fascinating to watch. the family of the pilot has said absolutely not, that he was -- he's the father of three, happy, jovial. >> absolutely. >> they've defended him until anything that is known. one point he seems to have been the only one that didn't have plans. >> what a tenuous thing to advance a whole theory on. >> exactly. i don't have plans for next week. >> i'm going to sabotage the plane i don't have plans for next week. >> thank you so much. appreciate it. when immigrants come to the u.s. many leave friends and families behind, sometimes forever. one woman left honduras 20 years ago, she left behind her mom and hasn't seen her since. cnn found a way for her to see her for a moment. when you run a business, you can't settle for slow.

daughter leslie. and found her living in new york. sharing her mother's grief. leslie says she used to cry alone, thinking about her family thousands of miles away. she was undocumented and couldn't visit. we took a dvd of my interview with her parents and showed it to leslie. she was finally able to see her parents for the first time in almost two decades. she couldn't believe her eyes. her mom showing the many years on her face. when you left, they were -- >> big different. >> reporter: as does the home she grew up in, a shell of what she remembers. >> homesick. >> reporter: shocked at the poverty and violence plaguing her old neighborhood what happen
2:26 pm
didn't surprise her -- her father talking to cnn. he's never been timid, she says. and while this unconventional reunion brought her some joy, nothing replaces seeing family in person. her dream now, aside from becoming a u.s. citizen, is to visit her family in honduras one day. rosa florez, cnn, new york. >> and be sure to watch "documented" a film that explores journey of undocumented immigrant and prize winning journalist, 9:00 p.m., cnn. soccer experts didn't give the u.s. much of a chance at the world cup but after a big win in their first game, the u.s. is just, well, about 90 minutes away from a place in the second

2:44 pm
has that changed now? are they in the spirit of the game, see maybe a financial benefit to it? >> you know, deb, they're seeing all angles. of course, they are still angry about the spending. they think in a country that has so many problems with education, public transportation, $11 billion should not have been spent on the global sporting event. on the other hand they love their soccer. they're extremely gracious, welcoming, hospitable people. they're not going to let one overshadow the oerp as soon as the ball started rolling they got into the game. with the american fans tell us, they feel like celebrities especially places like manaus where they don't see that many forren tourists. everywhere they go, people want to take their pictures, take their pictures with them, shake their hands. an incredible experience. but that doesn't mean that

fans, also saying 2-1, 'cause they are going to have to let probably one through from cristiano ronaldo and bottle one up. >> for the person who said they didn't like ronaldo, i don't condone or agree with that. richard roth, you know soccer, can the u.s. realistically go up and bring down portugal? okay, richard apparently has been abducted by american fans a that the bar where he is at. we will check with him later. if the u.s. does win today, they will advance to the knockout round. how far, if they do win, lara, how far do you think they can actually go, given really how incredible and how conditioned all of these teams are, lara? >> i think that we have seen one game so far about to see a second one against a very good team. so, after the second game, you can ask me that question, i will give you an answer. i'm going to play it the way that the u.s. men's national team coach played it he said that they are taking it one game
