3:00 am
nic robertson live in london. good morning. >> reporter: the foreign minsters have been meeting for three hours this morning. zariff when he arrived in switzerland said he believed they were technical issues. secretary kerry said look there are technical issues to get through here. he now believes this is a matter of political judgment. they were supposed to meet sunday. >> that didn't happen. zariff off to belgium to meet with the european leaders to brief them on a deadline. it doesn't appear we are close to crossing that final hurdle if you will. >> the british foreign minister saying there is a long way to go there. also secretary kerry also speaking out about a willingness to sit down with syrias a bashar al-assad. listen to what he had to say. >> everybody agrees there is no military solution. there is only a political
3:01 am
solution. i am convinced with the effort of our allies and others there will be increased pressure on assad. >> and you will be willing to negotiate with him? >> well we have to negotiate e negotiate a deal. >> how does he explain the change in strategy? >> this isn't a change in strategy. this is where the talks were within they were parked over a year ago. really the outgrowth of talks started back in 2013 t. so-called geneva talks. so yes obviously, you have to talk with the outside regime. that's a part of the process of removing the syrian president. look i was at those talks last year in switzerland and geneva in january, that didn't work didn't go anywhere. back then it was all about getting russia to put pressure on assad to make agreement there at those talks. that didn't happen. so you know we know the relationship with russia has really deteriorated significantly over the past
3:02 am
year. so who is going to put this magical pressure on the syrian government to come to the talks? it's not clear. but this is the language we are coming back to at the moment the talks are still hopeful. >> thank you for that background. let's talk with our cnn contributing editor and bobby goesh and a managing editor of quarters. gentleman, great to see you. let's talk about this bulletin that crossed the reuters news wire from the british foreign minister about the talks that happened as we speak. here's his quote they're closer than they were but this we have a long way to go. this is like a nothing statement. is there anyway to divide what's going on inside that room? >> which are reading tvs. this much is clear. they have seem to have a genuine personal chemistry there. they've sat down with a lot of
3:03 am
talks over the past couple years. theytime seem to genuinely like each other. we know kerry and the administration is looking for a deal t. iranians are looking for a deal. both countries have hard liners who don't want a deal. so that's pretty much where we are. here's what we don't know. we don't know whether they're closing to the question of sanctions. iran wants the sanctions to be lifted immediately. the western bars if you like want to wait and watch. which don't know about the duration of the deal a. ten-year deal, a 15-year deal what happens at the end of that then there are other smaller how much enrichment will iran be referenced on? >> we also know that secretary kerry did not like the letter that was sent from the 47 gop senators. and this weekend he would ask about that. he said once again he would concede. he was asked if he would have to apologize to iran for that letter. here's what secretary kerry
3:04 am
says. >> i'm not going to apologize for the -- for an unconstitutional unthought out action by somebody who has been in the united states senate for 60-some days. that's just inappropriate. >> is it possible this letter is hurting the goebls negotiations? >> i don't think so necessarily. in a way it's helped but the obama administration has been benefiting. the owebama administration are worried about the democrats. because this is a partisan issue, things like this letter. i think it's made it harder for the dratsz to oppose the administration. i think it's easier for them to believe they can sell this deal. >> we heard how wild it is because of all the conflicting interest including those outside of iran and in the middle east. here's what the saudi prince al faisal told the bbc. i've always said whatever comes
3:05 am
out of these talks we will want the same. so if iran has the ability to enrich uranium to whatever level, it's not just saudi arabia that's going to ask for that. the whole world will be an open door to go that route without any inhibition. obviously, the ripple effect from these talks stretch far beyond what iran is going to do. >> this is a little of a shot across the bow. the saudis and other airn arab states have been saying don't leave a deal that leaves iran empowered against us. there is a traditional rivalry between iran and the sunni states. both of them are spectra states. i'm not sure they will rebailed uranium processing center but this is saying don't tell e sell us down the road. >> it doesn't give other countries the green light to do so if the u.s. is seen as going
3:06 am
easy on iran? >> pakistan france have been moving in that direction. it's there are costs to doing this. it's very very expensive and it can jeopardize relations. i think the larger context here is that if the united states develops a better relationship with iran we become less reliant on saudi arabia. saudi influence over the united states diminishes. america used to have a good relationship with the saudis before the islamic revolution. we have become more dependent on the saudis because of our hos i'll relations with iran. they are in a weaker position if our relation improve. >> can you tell us what secretary kerry said about syria, basically, he said to end the five-year conthere flict there, we have to speak to syria? >> this is a consequence of drawing a red line and allowing syria to trample over it and not responding. five years later now the
3:07 am
administration doesn't have a lot of chips to play. and if a deal is made with iran then perhaps the iranians can talk to the saudis back at their proxy government. the administration has painted itself into a corner with syria and really has no other options at this point. >> is that how you see it? >> the question, a lot has changed. first of all the united states has not had any success in empowering the pod rat opposition to assad. isis has become much stronger. we are now fighting a huge war against them. as painful as it is to admit. we have to recognize the reality overthrowing assad right now and having a failed state with isis getting more control in syria might make a terrible situation even worse. >> peter, bobby, thank you for that context. coming up we will speak to state department spokes woman about what she knows, jen psaki. three teenagers are on bail
3:08 am
facing terrorism charges. foiling their latest plans to join up with isis. they're quickly returned to london before they could cross that border. we are following developments live if istanbul. >> reporter: good morning. turkey is pointing to this as an example of how things should be happening when it comes to intelligence sharing, british intelligence alerted their turkish counterparts on friday three will be traveling to turkey picking them up at istanbul's secondary airport. within 24 hours, sending them back to the u.k. turkey has been under much criticism for not doing enough to stem the flow of foreign fighters. turkey for its part saying europe needs to do more when it comes to intelligence sharing and preventing these various individuals from leaving their respective countries. turkey has compiled what is
3:09 am
called a full list back in january, february contained around 10,000 names of individuals that had been flagged, baring entry into turkey. now that list has gone up around 12,000. turkey still says more needs to be done on a wider scale when it comes to international efforts and intelligence sharing to stem the flow of foreign fighters. >> all right. thanks so much. a 20-year-old protestor has been charged with shooting two police officers last weekend in ferguson. he admits to pulling the trig trigger. he says the officers were fought his target. stephanie, good morning world trade center -- good morning, stephanie. >> reporter: he said he was shooting with somebody out in the crowd, one of the demonstrators. he was not targeting the police saying he was shooting from a car and he hit the two officers
3:10 am
who were standing side-by-side. they said that he has admitted to doing the shooting. they've recovered the weapon as well. the question is whether or not he was truly targeting those two police officers. one thing we did here we heard the prosecutor say he was a known demonstrator. i talked to a couple of people who said he was not a demonstrator. one pan visitman visiting with williams in jail and knows him from the community and as an organizer he was not out here protesting. he admitted he was not demonstrating and has not been involved in any of the protests since august and the mike brown shooting. so still the investigation continues. they believe he is the shooter. they say he may have aecom blisssbliss accomplices. >> thank you for that explanation. violence erupting in pakistan after suicide bombers

3:12 am
>> apparently you can see that throughout the episodes. it beck disquestion, did he want to be caught at 71-years-old he asking essentially to be arrested for these incidents? >> more than one possibility or maybe his ego is undoing him. >> or maybe a bit of both. >> we will have a lot more on that case including speaking with the judge of the one of the former hayes cases he was involved with with this developments. >> judge susan criss is a part of that trial. boston, it made it official. this is now the snowiest season they have seen. boston didn't do it. it had help from mother nature. flooding caused the ohio river to crest six feet above flood stage. >> that record snowfall up in boston the rainfall was here on saturday. but it moved into and turned
3:13 am
into snow by the time it got up to the north and got colder. it is now one inch above the 2014 season one inch above the old record. i don't think this snow is all that done yet. the rain though melting a lot of the snow in the ohio valley. >> that water getting into the ohio river and into the mississippi. flood warnings up and down and flood watches as well. we are going to see river floods this year as this snow melts. this amazing snow pack has to go somewhere. finally the snow pulls away. it could be snow coming up tomorrow night. nothing like inches i don't think. you will not be shoveling inches. it will be rain across the south here t. rain continues in places that will not need more rain. i know there has been a huge drought in texas. you take this day. you put it up in the ohio valley a couple great days for weather today. look at new york stlaen atlanta almost 80 degrees. >> it's nice we can spread the
3:14 am
love. >> it's 54 degrees. that's what i want to do. >> sounds great. we just told you about the 20-year-old ferguson suspect arrested for shooting two police officers. he says police were not his target. so who was he aiming at and did anyone help him? we're digging deeper on that. it could be one of the worst disasters. relief workers describing complete devtation in the wake of sigh loan pham? we'll have a report for you ahead. and move as quietly as possible. no sudden movements. google search: bodega beach house.

xfinity is perfect for people who love fast. don't miss furious 7 in theaters april 3rd. a 20-year-old from the st. louis area is now in custody for the shooting of two police officers last week in missouri. he was arrested late saturday charged with first degree assault. he admitted to firing the shot. however, he claims the target was not police. let's bring in the editor st. louis chris king and fbi santa director tom fuentes. good morning to both of you. tom, obviously, a big question. here is motive and intent.
3:19 am
bob mcculloch the prosecutor at the press conference said he understood that williams said there was some sort of dust up with some other people he had, some sort of beef that he went to find them opened fire and that the police were not his targets. do you buy that? >> actually mikaela, i don't buy it. >> why? >> having been to the scene and learned that the demonstrators have moved off the streets and the police and people witnesses from down below directly in front of the police said they were positive the shots came from up the hill. having been up on the hill with a reporter looking down where the police were standing we were told that street was wide opened that car traffic had not yet opened up and demonstrators had been moved off the street into parking lots on two sides of the side streets and there really weren't demonstrators on
3:20 am
the street to shoot at at the time of the shooting. up the side street in the darkness where the shots come from there might have been other people up there. so it's a possibility that he was trying to have a discussion altercation, with other people up there. the fact that four or five ran out. two hit police officers side-by-side when he claims he's shooting at somebody else is a little far fetched. >> what about you, chris, do you buy it in the prosecutors say some reports support his claim. the investigation continues. what do you think? >> i have also been up on the hill and, you know it's a pretty goodellvation fall. so if you don't know how to shoot downhill who knows what you will hit. there were still protestors on the scene. i talked to plenty of people who hit the ground when the bullets rang out. if you look at statistical probability, it's hard to say it's common for other men to shoot at other men in the mist
3:21 am
and hit somebody else. >> the fact that nobody else was shot is a mystery to so many people t. point whether or not this guy was or was not a demonstrator seems to be a key factor. krils you know the make-up of this crowd. you have been following it. you have been covering it. you have been down there on the ground. do you know this guy to be one of the demonstrators? >> absolutely not. a man saw this young man wednesday as he said hanging around on the protest. he recognized him specifically as a new face. because people are wary of new faces. >> tom, does that say to you then following your lean of thought that this guy was an outside agitator or was this somebody in the dwlaer had other intentions? >> i don't know. i don't know mikaela. we don't know when the crowds were bigger and noisier and people were on different parts of different streets, whether he had been out there before or not. you know it doesn't sound like
3:22 am
he had been a regular protestor, if at all. but i think that in a way, you know there is no way to know positively if he had been out there before. >> what do you think about the shooting of these officers be i the arrest of this young man? what kind of effect do you think it will have on the overall movement and the demonstrations and the feeling of the people wanting their voices heard there in ferguson? >> there are two critical things here. john ballmer, the county police chief announced people from all strata cooperated with the investigations. >> that is critical and beautiful. on the other hand i do believe the chief and prosecutor both overplayed the emphasis that this kid is a protester when he really isn't and that really damaged the possibility for this to be a step forward. >> it's an interesting thought. tom, in terms of law enforcement, do you think this
3:23 am
is going to change tear reaction to the demonstrations to the presence of people on the ground the fact that two of their own were shot, do you think it's going to cause them to step up their presence or change how they police there? >> i don't think so. i think they will still, you know perform about the way they have. it should be noted when these shots rang out, the police didn't wildly shoot back and you know hit other members of the crowd, but they were disciplined at least not returning fire in a difficult situation. but what the police have been used to from the begining is that starting later in the night, after midnight after 1:00 i refer to this as the normal clientele of the bliss him people come out, they're not protest oers they're odds agitators, maybe even inside agitators. they're out looking for trouble. a lot of these people would be on the street causing trouble if there had never been a protest or an incident with michael brown. that's the nature of what police
3:24 am
deal with late at night in most places in this country. so having a street cop six years, that's who comes out after midnight. >> unfortunately, that is a good level of truth. >> do you think will happen next? do you think we will see more arrests, lack of confidence in the mayor? what do you see happening? >> i don't see jeffrey williams as likely having some elaborate operation behind him. i spent time on his facebook page last night. he's really interested in himself and whiskey, maybe. i don't think he's a part of only ring out to kill police or protestors. i think we have the same problems as if he's guilty. this knucklehead squeezed off two shots that night. >> do you think the mayor survived? >> mayor knolls is not an important player. the city council makes the decisions. the mayor is a voting member at large. his role is grossly overstated. >> chris king tom fuentes,
3:25 am

3:30 am
destruction. ivan watson joins us live from the city of port vila. ivan what's it look like there? >> reporter: you know john vanuatu is sometimes considered home to some of the happiest people on earth. the beautiful waters. the tropical climate. it's hard to try to figure out why, what these people did to deserve getting hit, they describe as the worst storm they've seen in generations. a cyclone the government here predicts may have left 70% of the population homeless. the tiny south pacific island of vanuatu, devastates after monster cyclone pam tore through the remote chain of the islands for a 24-hour period between friday and saturday t. unrelenting storm leaving a trail of utter destruction in its path. homes flattened, buildings
3:31 am
reduced to rubble. the government declaring a state of mortgages as the death toll continues to rise with more than 30 injured, thousands in need of shelter, food and water, including some 60,000 children. a near total communications blackout across the other province making it nearly impossible for officials to determine the scale of injuries and damage. aide workers calling this one of the worst disasters to hit the region. a beautiful island paradise now hardly recognizable. in some areas were winds up to 165 miles per hour and torrential rains have stripped rooves and decimated buildings in the capital. an estimated 90% of the infrastructure wiped out as search and rescue operations continue. authorities believe it will take days to understand the extent of the misery cyclone pam left in
3:32 am
its wake. now not only has this been a much prized resort, a destination for foreign tourists but this is one of the poorest countries in the pacific. a lot of people here rely basically on subsistence farming to feed their families. the government now is predicting that a lot of these people there are small garden their farms have been destroyed by the rains, by the floods by the winds. so people are spending what little money they have to buy a little bit of rice what comes next and the scariest thing of all, it's hard for the authorities to even reach parts of the islands i am standing on right now much less some of the dozens of other islands scattered across this island nation. this has been a big disaster for a small country that does not have a lot of recourse. >> certainly it does not and the communications we are having with you indicative of what they are dealing with there as well.

3:40 am
it's been more than four months since president obama nominated lorretta lynch and mitch mcconnell saying the senate will not vote on lynch until a controversial human trafficking bill is passed. >> we are not going to be able to finish the bill until this gets resolved and this will have an impact on the timing of considering the new attorney general. now i had hoped to turn to her next week but if we can't finish the trafficking bill she will be put off again. >> okay. so here to weigh in is cnn political commentator and strategist tara setner ladies thanks so much for being here. tara can you explain how these are connected? why is lorretta lynch's
3:41 am
nomination connected to this controversial human trafficking bill that has an abortion provision in it? >> well the way the senate the senate looks at average people look how things go it makes sense, this schedule this schedule move onto the next one. the naat is a strange beast. even for me working on the hill working on the house side often we don't understand how the senate calendar works. it's a specific way things are run. you have certain bills, you have a certain amount of time to get things done. >> that i do it politically. harry reid did it all the time you want this nominee or this bill we will finish this first. it's a political game people play him we may not like it. that's the way it goes. i want to correct something about the human trafficking bill. it's not there is a controversial abortion provision in it. all of a sudden they think the hyde amendment, which has been passed to many appropriations bills since 1976 pretty
3:42 am
standard all of a sudden the hyde amendment, which does not allow federal funding for abortion is objectionable. >> since when? >> the amendment has a provision where you are allowed to rape inses the mother is allowed. >> first of all, who controls the schedule blame it on some mysterious scheduling thing. ask tara before i let you get away with this plain sigh right there, what about the point that tara is making. we are talking and the hyde amendment there, which was in the bill in plain writing, dig durbined a mit, we missed it. clearly, if it had been front and center we would have caught it. it's like saying the dog ate my home here. >> i agree. when it comes to democrat's excuses, i can tell you many
3:43 am
democrats and progressives are disappointed. many americans think it's your job to read the ladies and gentlemen e legislation you are voting on. that being said durbin at lowest he was honest i guess you can say, tara i want to correct what she is saying about the hyde amendment. what senator corne cornin put in here is a private fund to help victims of human trafficking. this would be private money used towards abortion obviously, these women trafficked have been wrapd raped. it's an expansion and in the house they passed a version of the human trafficking legislation without this with the standard language in there for a long time with no additional ablurngs. so it's the expansion to say the hyde amendment now would also
3:44 am
apply to private funding. that's problematic for democrats on this. >> it went through committee. it went and voted out unanimously. there are ten co-sponsors of this bill. neither are seeing they are incompetent. none of the senators read it neither did their staff. why did harry reid identify the amendment process? he said. so they're politicizeing this. >> i think something in the system. that's abhorrent. i. >> i think the would be was through the amendment process, cornin and the republicans made it clear they were not going to take this out this has to your first question has nothing to do with lorretta lynch. if we talk about timing it is
3:45 am
unprecedented how long hay made this woman wait. this is someone who came into this process everybody thought she would sail through. she was a part of the deal that brought down three would be terrorists in brooklyn. this woman has a stirling reputation. she is overly qualified for the position. so this is clearly politics you know mitch mcconnell. look both sides do it. that's why these two things have been tied together t. senate can walk and chew gum at the same time. >> you are shaking your head. you don't like her for an attorney general? >> i think there are legitimate questions for why if some of the answers that she's given, that's why we have a nominations process. >> what don't you like? >> the biggest is she thinks
3:46 am
anyone has a chance to work here. people that broke laws are living here illegally, that's what she said. to me if you will be the number one law enforcement official in this country, you need to uphold and respect the laws regardless of your political leanings on that. the other thing ability her, the timing of this trying to blame that republicans are holding her hundred. senator leahy was still the chairman and he had the chance to bring her. >> we need to correct this point --. >> i want to bring that point up the democrats had a chance to do this. >> yourry responsibility. >> actually the republicans and democrats worked out a deal because the republicans asked because they were doing judicial nominations could we move this to the next session, on this point, hold on tara the point, a great right wing talking point. she actually went back and said she said i am not saying there is a federal right to work.
3:47 am
she said i am talking about the work ethic that was passed down to me and my family. she was speaking as an african-american meaning if you came here on a slave ship it doesn't matter. you still have as to work pull your weight. . >> i think there may be no conclusive answer to this debate. i thank you for being here this morning. there may be no conclusive answer to this where's vladmir putin? >> that's the question. >> 11 days now we have not seen hide nor hair this is extremely rare for vladmir putin. we will talk to a senior diplomat with vast experience in russia about the world wide implications of this missing leader. t is it that we can do that is impactful?" what the cloud enables is computing to empower cancer researchers. it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome; with the microsoft cloud we can analyze 100 per day.

3:51 am
works. so where is vladmir putin? the russian president has not been seen if public since march 5th. today the president is expected scheduled to meet with the vice president of kyrgyzstan. the president is where has he been all this time? i want to bring to the ambassador to russia and now a
3:52 am
distinguished fellow at the brookeings institute. thanks so much for being with us. 11 days may not be enough to see vladmir putin. this is a guy basically on tv nearly 24 hours a day in russia nothing short of propaganda so not to see him for this much time is significant. what do you think is going on here? >> i do think it's significant and obviously, john we don't have reliable information on president putin and what may be happening to him. there are some reports he might be at his country place that's only a report. there was an effort to show him on television. i think you have that footage with the supreme president not too long ago. there are questions about that, including the fact this he appeared to be wearing a suit he appeared in much earlier this month. whether that is an old picture
3:53 am
we don't know. we continue to have him remain in a mystery status. he is a timely man, he may not want to portray any illness, that is another speculation. then it raises in the background the deeper succession in russia. i hateen to add there is no evidence of that at all. but issue has problems with state succession a strong leader does he didn't like to appoint people who might be succeeding him. it reminds him after his frailty as a human being that he won't be here all of these are factors that suddenly come to mind when somebody like president putin is not appearing
3:54 am
on the scene on a regular basis and we will have to see whether he shows up in st. petersburg with the president of kyrgyzstan as mentioned. >> there is evidence that the government is at least trying to project the image that he's not missing. they have sent out official tweets showing pictures in a couple meetings. people pointed out the actual pictures put out actually come from before he disappeared from the scene. so there is something very strange here. first let me say there are three fer e theory one he is sick and doesn't want to seem weak. two there are people speculating that his girlfriend is having a baby. he was there to watch the birth of his child. the third thing the idea is there is some kind of government shakeup going on right now. what is next after vladmir putin? >> it's a very hard thing to
3:55 am
say, the prime minister was president in between putin's successive terms when putin ran out of let's put it this way constitutional short to continue as president. he isn't seen necessarily as someone who could readily step into if position nor is he treated as that person. as i said before unpresident putin it's not likely we will have a well identified clearly defined, ready to hand easy successor in place. >> ambassador i want to shift gears, the issue of hillary clinton's e-mails. you helped run the committee liking into what happened at the u.s. outpost in benghazi the attacks there, do you feel like you had access to all the information you wanted from hillary clinton's e-mails when you were running that committee? >> we did not as far as i know. i just rechecked, okay i see
3:56 am
those e-mails. i would not say, ehowever there was any evidence we had that would have pointed us towards these e-mails. the e-mails we saw we saw because we were interviewing individuals connected with the investigation. as you might recall we were enjoined by the act of congress passed a dozen years before benefit benghazi that we were not to accept the crew the cabinet head dent heads, by accepting their responsibility as a part of tear job would be a suitable reason to find they had responsibility under the accountability review board rules. we were joined to find where decisions were made. that's what we did. that's the reason why we felt quite confident with the information we had at hand in interviews we had, we had identified the people who made
3:57 am
the decision and made recommendations to the secretary of state in that regard. >> you didn't have the e-mails, in retrospect they might have been helpful? >> i don't know. we don't know. i never speculate unknowns until those e-mails are released and the issue is cleared up. what i would say is we had no evidence and everything else that we saw, including e-mails from lots of people who were the people we felt were necessary to interview because they were involved in the decision-making. there was no such evidence related to the secretary of state, which is the reason why we didn't pursue investigations in that further. >> thank you for being here. i appreciate your tame. >> sure. >> we are following a lot of news this morning. let's get straight to it. negotiations between the u.s. and iran has begun. >> it's wrong. it's unprecedented. >> this letter was absolutely calculated directly to interfere
3:58 am
with these negotiations. >> critical parliamentary elections in israel. >> his right wing party narrowly trails the zionist union. robert further apparently confessing to three murders on national television. >> killed them all. killed them of course. >> here's one of the poorest countries in the pacific. >> thousands of people are without homes, without clean water. >> this is "new day." >> a beautiful skyline of new york city. good morning welcome back to your "new day." chris has the week off. we are joined by mr. chris berman. secretary of state john kerry back at the bargaining table with iran trying to hammer out the details with an agreement with two weeks to go before the deadline. and the white house trying to keep congress out of these
3:59 am
talks, the senator who offered that letter to the iranians doubling down saying he has quote no regrets about sending it. nic robertson is talking all the developments live from chatillon. what do we know at this hour? >> reporter: the talks have been going for a number of hours, which may be indicative of things are going well. yet, yesterday, secretary kerry was supposed to sit down yesterday evening. that didn't happen. sort of direct reports at meetings earlier in the day. sitting down to that meeting this morning. the iranians are saying we believe it's more about technical issues. the deadline two weeks away and secretary kerry is saying look although there are some technical issues to this to discuss here really this is about a state of political
4:00 am
judgment so there seems to be a difference of opinions. >> secretary kerry described a willingness to sit down with syria's bar ar al-assad. listen to this. >> everybody agrees there is no military solution. there is only a political solution. i am convinced with the efforts of our allies and others there will be increased pressure on assad. >> and you'd be willing to negotiate with him? >> no we have to negotiate in the end. >> nic, did the secretary explain that seeming shift in strategy? >> reporter: well he certainly sounds like a different tone a. year-and-a-half ago it was assad must go. he is no longer the leader of the country. what the state department is saying is what secretary kerry meant in the geneva za talks, which haven't made progress the outcome of a successful outcome
4:01 am
of those talks would be talks essentially with the syrian leadership which would then lead to a change in the new government there and he would move away from a position of power. but what the secretary kerry also said over the weekend in the context of this, is you know additional pressure will be brought to bear on the syrian leadership. i was at those talks in january late last 84 the expectation from the u.s.-european side is that the russians will put more pressure to make a schmeiser, that didn't happen then. look the relationship between the united states and the europeans against or with the russians if you will on the other side has only gotten worse. where that though expected pressure is expected to come from on assad to make a compromise that's not clear, alisyn. >> nic robertson, thanks so much for all that. meanwhile, bengals nine netanyahu locked in the fight of
4:02 am
his political life israelis prepare to head to thepolitical life israelis prepare to head to the polls tomorrow. what is it looking like today? >> reporter: well alisyn benjamin netanyahu is very aware of those polls. he is four seats behind his mine rival. he knows he has to close that gap. four seats isn't that beg of a gap. the significance is this was the biggest gap. this was next and next now it's the four-seat gap. he is critical. final days now the final hours before the election. netanyahu came out. he made a number of final appearance he came out in tel aviv firing up a right wing rally. his supporters tens of thousands filling the square.
4:03 am
because of israeli politics works, he doesn't need to win the election to be the next prime minister and that's where he is a master politician, a master deal-maker. he knows if he gets the chance he can probably create the government. the critical part for netanyahu is he needs to close that gap. so it all cams down to him for voter turnout. mikaela, he urged his right wing supporters out on election day starting in just a few hours here in israel. >> he faces the political fight of his life. thanks so much for that. quite a tangled web in the middle east. david miller is the president for new initiatives, a distinguished scholar, former middle east negotiator under republican and democratic administrators. you are the man to wade through all of this. help us make sense of it all. >> i will try. where do you want to start? >> we are hearing from the british foreign minister saying
4:04 am
closer but a long way to go two weeks until the deadline. this is the first time they're sitting face-to-face since that letter from the 47 senators. what do you sense is happening in there? how important are these negotiation at this key point? >> reporter: there are a lot of negotiations for a long time. there is a certain eb and flow and rhythm to them. deadlines and urgency go together. i think you are reaching a critically important point, a put up or shut down pointed, which is probably the end of march, something needs to emerge a political framework, a basic agreement on general principles. something to demonstrate the last two years hasn't been empty and wasted. at the same time my sense is they're moving towards that at the same time in a final stage negotiations you usually have three or four issues that need to be closed. the time you got at least ten. they're not simply dotting the
4:05 am
is, crossing the ts. they're big issues a lot to do not to mention the domestic politics on both sides and iran's behavor, no more complicated negotiation i don't think i've seen. >> you said it's the toughest one you've seen tom cotton the sophomore, the freshman congressman essentially doubling down over the weekend saying he does not regret instigateing that letter to the iranian ayatollah, the white house saying hey, let it play out the way it will play out. how damaging is all of this? the domestic issues? >> there is no question that it's hard. it makes it much more difficult. look let me be clear. congress shouldn't be running american foreign policy having run for 25 years, the state departments shouldn't have a monopoly either. the reality is this is a
4:06 am
critically important agreement, which is going to endure for a decade plus. congress has to have some input if only i would arc to you work with the administration to issue if iran violates the agreement that there will be snap back sanctions or even the threat of the use of force and that can only come if you strike a durable deal between the administration and congress. that's obviously not going to happen in the next two weeks or 22 months. >> talking about the israeli elections being how i want to ask you about that. you have written extensively. what do you see happening in a race that seems too close to call? >> a day before the elections are now undecided. the last time i tried to predict an election was in april of '96 where working for bill clinton we were all purchase swaedersuaded you guessed it we were all wrong t.
4:07 am
reality is if we were a beauty contest only of questions polled it would be one thing. but it's assembly of that coalition and the natural partners of the 11 or 12 parties now competing align more with benjamin netanyahu than they do with isaac hertzog the head of the zionist union. we haven't had a labor party prime minister in 16 years and at the same time 70 75% of the republic according to latest polls want to change. again, i don't want to run for the hills on this. it will take at least a month, mikaela. >> a quick final lot thought. if a new government is brought in how does that change u.s.-israel relations? >> well that is the one area where you will see a real transformation. i will tell you, if he loses,
4:08 am
they'll be popping the champagne corks at foggy bottom and pennsylvania avenue. >> thanks, so much for share, your bright bright mind with us. >> my pleasure mikaela. >> we appreciate it. happy monld. we will get the latest on the negotiations in our 8:00 hour. we will welcome the spokes woman for the state department. >> all right. an estranged member of a new york real estate family is now behind bars in a cold case killing of a long time friend. robert durst is being profiled in an hbo documentary. right at the end of it all there was an apparent confession. let's go to new orleans this morning, this is crazy, jane. >> reporter: john wee are right here at the criminal justice center in new orleans. in just a few hours, robert durst will come face-to-face with a judge. he is no stranger to the
4:09 am
criminal justice system. it was over a decade ago, he was acquitted out of texas. now he faces those same charges in los angeles. in regard to the slaying of a confidante and best friend in beverly hills. >> what if hell did i do? killed them all, of course. >> real estate robert durst caught on a live mic ending the series "the jynx." . what he means unclear. there it is you're caught. these are the words of a cold murder suspect. durst whispering in a bathroom after a final interview for a special. which decides them to challenge whether the son of the most powerful tycoons is responsible for the disappearance of his wife and the murder of a close
4:10 am
friend in 2000 and a neighbor in 2001. >> the bringing looks similar. >> the film makers uncover a letter written by the millionaire to long-time friend and crime novelist susan berman. berman was found shot dead inside her l.a. home over 14 years ago. the handwriting and the spelling of her address eerily similar to a letter written to police telling them where to find the body. durst denied he wrote it. >> what i see as a similarity is a misspelling in the beverly. other than that the block letters are block letters. >> reporter: police arrested the heir saturday now held on a capital murder charge in berman's death, citing additional evidence that has come to white in the past year. i is unclear what royal the documentary play telling fox news he was underwelmed by the new developments revealed in the
4:11 am
six-part series including his ramblings in the bathroom. >> he was right. i was wrong. >> we'll address those facts in the courtroom. generally speaking i was underwelmed. >> the millionaire long maintained he did not kill berman or his wife who has never been found. we do want to say cnn and hbo are owned by time warner we reached out to ask if when and how they contacted law enforcement. they have not responded to our questions and a law enforcement source says the fbi had been tracking robert durst. le arrived last tuesday, march 10th. they arrested him late saturday night. they believed he was very close to leaving the country bound for cuba. alisyn. >> jean, a spine tingling and
4:12 am
intriguing case we will be peeking to the judge in that one of the cases coming up to get more details. thanks so much. also this three british teenagers facing terrorism charges after their alleged plan to join isis in syria, turkish authorities detaining the teens after a tip offthat they were missing and believed to be traveling to syria. the two 17-year-olds and a 19-year-old now free on bail. this comes weeks after three other female british teenagers left their homes in london and are thought to be with isis in syria. >> so this just in the wait is over russian president vladmir putin just re-appeared for the first time in 11 days. he did show up to a meeting with the president of kyrgyzstan. you see it happening right there in st. petersburg. he was gone for 11 day, fueling all kind of conspiracy theories and his health before the meeting, which was minutes ago,
4:13 am
the russian leader remarked it would be boring without gossip. >> he must have heard berman was looking for you. >> an enormous sway all around the globe. >> amazing video in gainesville, florida. three-time high rise champion airborned seconds after the start of his race the top fuel car cut in half. check this out, though he is able to walk away from the wreck under his own power. he even waves to the crowd. amazing, he's in that portion there. you see the car split in half. fly airborn down the course. unbelievable. guess what larry digson joins us live in the next hour. we have so many questions to ask him about this crash, what went wrong, more importantly, how he is feeling this morning. >> it's a long way to go on "new day." >> some people get attention.
4:14 am
>> so true. all right. meanwhile, back to this crazy mysterious case could robert further's recorded remarks about killing them all seal his fate in court? is this a confession or is it inadmissible in court? we will be peeking to a judge who presided over the 2003 murder trial in which durst was acquitted, and a confirmation 58 set this week for lorretta lynch is off the table. how to hold it up? politics of course john cain will explain on inside politics. i think the numbers speak for themselves. i'm sold! a "selling machine!" ready for you alert, only at

12k3w4r you can't help yourself. right now you are a free man 100%. you say something inadvertently, you will find yourself charged in new york or charged in los angeles and the interview was a big risk for you. why do you want to do an interview? >> those words coming back to haunt accused murderer robert durst this morning. durst long suspected in several murders appears to admit to those crimes in the bombshell finale of the "jynx" on hbo owned by time warner the parent company of cnn. he was arrested in connection with the 2000 murder of berman. he was tried self years ago for the murder of a neighbor in
4:19 am
galveston texas. he was acquitted. susan criss was the judge. good morning judge. >> good morning. >> what a crazy sequence of events here. a series of things happened in the 1980s all involving robert durst. he was, at first his wife mysteriously disappeared and his best friend was murdered. then his neighbor was shot and dismembered. you were the judge on that case of the neighbor. what happened during that trial? >> well, i think everyone wants to know how he could be aquitted when he admitted to dismembering someone. well my perception was the da came in overconfident and then realized they were overmatched and just gave up hope. it was like watching a slow train wreck. >> what were your impressions of robert further as you presided
4:20 am
over that trial? >> everyone wants to assume he is craze, it's so hard to understand how someone could cut up another human being. my impression is he is not crazy. he knows exactly what he is doing. he is very intelligent. very stunning. i think he thrived on the media attention from the trial. it's a very very complex person. he's a very very fascinating character. >> so now listen to what was just revealed in this hbo special. basically, they are taping an interview with him, the film-makers, he takes a break to go into the bathroom. programs not realizing he is wearing a microphone. >> that microphone is hot. here is what they capture him saying to himself in the bathroom. listen. listen. >> what the hell did i do? killed them all, of course. >> he's speaking to himself, he
4:21 am
said killed them all, of course. how do you explain this unguarded moment here caught on tape? >> amazing, in another sense, that's what he does in our trial, he had been recorded on the phone talking to his wife and friends making a lot of admissions. the state never used that but he was aware he had been recording saying things that could implement him in a murder we were trying. earlier in those interviews for that very program, there was a break where he was caught practicing his testimony. he knew he had a mic on. this is the third time he's made that mistake. that's amazing. >> part of why people some speculate he may be insane is bus it sounds almost as though he has a split personality. as though there is somebody else talking. you reject that notion?
4:22 am
>> i do reject that. and if the defense attorneys hear that they will want to jump on that he is not insane at all. she an interesting person. he is not insane. >> here is what one of his defense attorneys has said about this moment where he appears to be confessing to himself. he is saying here's the attorney chip lewis, your honesty would lead to you try, i'm sorry, would lead you to say you've said things under your breath before that you probably didn't mean so i don't want to talk about the factual specs. >> bake alily thee basically, the attorney is saying we all mutter to ourselves. >> what do you say to yourself? >> we don't mutter that we've killed anyone that's crazy. >> here's hbo's statement, they simply say we cannot say enough about the job the film makers did in producing "the jynx"
4:23 am
years in the research and their dogged reporting reignited the story with the public and law enforcement. is this enough judge, in your vast experience to prosecute and convict robert durst? >> i don't know it's a method of itself. it is a part i think of the case made against him. that case has been several years in the making. the investigation has been going on t. reopening of the case has been going on. these are pieces of evidence that will be used. they will be powerful pieces of evidence. >> do you think there is any problem the film-makers had this information and didn't immediately give it to police they waited for it to come out? >> i don't, i don't agree with that they did immediately give it to the police. they turned over the handwriting sample a couple years ago, they told me when they did it the
4:24 am
police have had it. the police didn't just learn this when they watched televig. they had that. the film-makers did an outstanding job. >> so why only now is robert durst arrested? >> you know i don't know it's probably good we don't know. we shouldn't know every part of an investigation, part of that has to be kept secret. he has been watching the news and it wouldn't be aproep to tell them everything going on. the producers did an outstanding job uncovering things. i think one of the questions is why didn't law enforcement go through susan berman's things when they were doing the crime scene and they knew they had a document that was handwritten by someone they thought she knew? why didn't they go through every piece of paper then? that will probably be answered through the trial. but i think there is going to be a lot more that we don't know
4:25 am
that we are going to find out. >> wow, so fascinating. so many questions. thanks so much for all of your background information on this nice to have you on "new day." >> we want to know what you think about this case. tweet us at "new day" or go to day. we'd love to hear your comments. >> really a gripping story. thank you so much. republican hopefuls several reporters tag along and sit down with john king inside politics.

term that country struggles with an economy slipping into a recession. i'll show you this dramatic video showing that rescue of the 18 month old girl from a car that had plunged into a frigid utah river. >> pass her up. pass her up. come on sweetie. come on sweetie. >> oh goodness emergency responders found her seemingly lifeless still strapped in her car seat 14 hours after the crash. rescuers can be heard saying the little girl was hypothermic, without a pulse when they found her. her mother who was driving died in that crash. little lily was reunited with her papa last week. >> oh my gosh incredible. >> every day something new comes out about this mysterious and sort of it gives you goose bumps.
4:31 am
>> all right. let's go inside politics right now with john king. hey, john. >> happy monday. nice to see you all. a busy day inside politics. ed o'keefe of the "new york times," we thought last week even, we thought this week we'd get a vote of a new attorney general. lorretta lynch. she has the vote. it was held up right now. she became sort of the proxy in that fight. now she's hung up because mitch mcconnell and the republicans are trying to pass a controversial bill about human trafficking. there is some language inserted there. democrats are objecting. mitch mcconnell says you help me or else you won't get your vote on lorretta lynch. >> it's not a threat. we need to finish the tracking bill. it came out unanimously. it's all on the senate floor right now. we need to finish this to have
4:32 am
time to target the attorney general. >> the country does need an attorney general at some point. this is again dysfunction in this town and distrust between the parties. >> this is a lenls lative tactic. at this point it looks like it probably would fail. the democrats didn't read the bill this whole time. and it will cause more great will. there are two weeks left and they have to get things done the lorretta lynch nomination. the budget process begins in two weeks. the democrats continue to see an opportunity to badgeer republicans. it probably will be their main topic of discussion this coming week. >> she has the votes right now. what's to say the democrats kick off one or two republicans, they don't pull back and cause headaches? >> yeah given the current temperature up there, nothing is assured. so the idea that she is a lock
4:33 am
i this i is a dubious proposition given how tenuous this relationship is. >> it has nothing to do with her. she is caught up in this climate. another thing stoking the climate is the hillary clinton controversy. benghazi twice now because of the e-mail the chairman of that "says mrs. clinton, if you are smart, you will turn your private e-mail server over to some independent authority who can go through it to make sure you gave up everything the government should have and essentially, listen here choose that route, mrs. clinton. or else we may subpoena it. >> if it becomes an issue for her, if the public believes it is reasonable for her to turn over that server which contains public information to a neutral detached orbiter, not congress but a retired judge or an archivist or inspector general, then she will be forced to do
4:34 am
so. otherwise the house as an institution may be forced to go to court to try to get access to that. >> doesn't that sound familiar to you? it really harkens back to the '90s. hillary clinton famously and the clinton white house fought against an in the prosecutor. you know from covering those day, her fear was able to open up this entire can of worms if you will which ultimately did and led to the impeachment of former president clinton. land deals in arkansas what what hillary clinton hairingears about, i don't think so. >> the server will remain private. he said essentially trust me. we have given the government what it deserves the rest of it. i've sleeted it. >> that's the thing. >> that will be left. the other thing he said if the public feels it's necessary i'm beginning to wonder will this just fade into the background with all the other clinton
4:35 am
problems? will people see beyond it? i don't know. certainly, it looks like de ja vu all over. >> cnn releasing questions to the public without the e-mail. release that at 4:00 today. most of you guys are back from new hampshire. you cannot look at a photograph of a candidate in new hampshire and not see these two fine gentleman. two handsome guys getting public exposure. let's start with governor walker though he was up to the state. this is a time of the campaign the candidate says a thing this is scott walker saying i'm mr. blue collar. you can make the conclusion at home maybe who is not. >> my grand parents on one side were farmers. my mom didn't have indoor plumbing until she went off to junior high. my granddad was a machinist for
4:36 am
40 years. from all my parents and grandparent, i didn't inheret fame or fortune. what i got was more important. >> to paraphrase i ain't no senator i screwed it up. the point being that scott walker is talking about how, he ain't no senator's grandson as the song lyrics have it. he is not alone, he wrote about this they are talking about their humble origins, scott walker especially, seems to really you know it's his origin also its his cold shirt. kids are in public schools. it's a completely wide opened race. it is incredible. nobody who really played last
4:37 am
sometime in the mix this time. this required both of them scott walker and jeb bush to hold a lot of things this weekend, introduced themselves to people they den know. bush said they seemed to do well at a house party we were at. >> let's listen to bush. he has the republican base standard support because of the support for at least the legal status and maybe even a path to citizen subpoena for the undocumented. listen to him here again, he doesn't mention any candidate, some candidates have shiftedle. governor bush says he has something important. >> you don't abandon your boar bewleefs you persuade people. i think you need to be genuine, i think you need to have a backbone. >> hmm. meantime, a backbone? >> he did take debate. we've pressed him on walker's positions, he conceded yeah walker has this position on immigration. we then talk to walker. what does he say? he has changed his mind because he's talked to people.
4:38 am
>> he is devoted. even in walker's pushback. he concedes he changed his mind he says he did so because he listened to the people. the people want leaders who will listen to them, okay itself john is a knock against jeb bush. so i have moved because the people want that. this is going to be the sort of fray right now. they're being polite about it. they aren't going after each other that explicitly. >> it's coming. it's coming. these guys are just back in new hampshire. i know they will be there again. i have to get out soon. alisyn ted cruz in new hampshire this morning the onslaught of candidates continue. governor john kasich of ohio next week. it is 2015. in the state of ohio it's already 2016. >> you know what they say out of new hampshire, don't take it for granted. >> that's good love it. >> john berman is moening. >> he will fall out of the chair over there. great to see you. all right, how has isis been

ravel to syria to join isis. this happened as three other british teams are back in the u.k. after being nabbed in turkey. they were trying to get to syria to join isis as well. joining us now is cnn former cia terrorism official philip mudd. some of these guys have now been released on bail in londonch they're out trying to join isis now out on bail. does that seem like a risky combination to you? >> it does. it seems like the right choice to me. the british announced when the girls went weeks ago, some are 15-years-old they wouldn't charge them. i think when you are dealing with 15 16 17-year-olds who don't i think have an ideological commitment to isis.

these are kids who are misguided, recruited on social media, given the volume of kids we are dealing with i think countries, canada britain, australia have a big problem, have to step back and say is it worth charging dozens or hundreds of teenagers or is it worth laying them out on bail or setting them to halfway houses? that's what i'd do. >> it's an unexpected soft side to phil mudd. these are kids you are saying tidz who want to be a part of isis killing people in syria, but they're kids nonetheless. so how do you treat them? how do you keep them from going to join this terror group? >> it's very difficult. i think there are some issues we have to deal with that are tough. one is profiling. how does a kid 15-years-old walk into a travel agent and buy a ticket for cash. in this case in many cases, you have a difficulty we call in the business of ci broken travel.
4:45 am
they will not fly directly to turkey. in the most recent case they flew to madrid. still i think you have to get out there and profile with travel agents that ends up in turkey. >> how can you get that money? >> you say three muslim kids arabic nails, if they walk into a travel agency that itself the profiling you are talking about? >> i don't care about muslim i care about kids you want to buy a ticket to turkey? i don't get it. the problem though you will get into is volume. the australians, for example, a relatively small country that has a significant number of people in syria and iraq they're stopping at their borders 400 people a day to question. that's not all bad guys it gives you the sense of the magnetism. >> we hear of the social media on isis what does that mean? if isis is good in 240
4:46 am
characters. what do they do is that is so attractive to these teens across europe? >> there are a couple characteristics that are fundamentally different. let's go through a couple john the first is when they see something on twitter on social media, they're talking potentially to how about attraction to a place geographically approximate. you can get there easily. you could not have gotten to afghanistan. second if there is an attraction to these kids can you imagine in 1995 if you are in chicago or new york saying how do i find an al qaeda guy to help me get to afghanistan? i think they're attracted by people who speak british or american canadian english. i think they are attracted to a message not about violence it's to naive kids 15 years old to say, why don't you come live in a place that's better? it offers a simple message.
4:47 am
it's not about beheading. it's about a better life. >> if we can't reach kids how do you reach the parents? in brooklyn it was the mother of one of these guys that took away his passport she didn't trust him. how do you get this message out to parents? >> one thing you have to have is a conversation about the consequences for kids. we just talked about whether you charge these kids or not. if you have a program to send them to halfway houses i think the chance of success to engage parents is greater. no parent who suspects the kids wants to bring the feds in if the end of the line is going to prince, i think a part of the die lock is do we want all these kids charged or especially given the number of kids we are dealing with do we want a better way to deal with someone? they are not ideologues they are emotionally committed to the cause. you can turn that around if you get engagement with the kids. they will not be terrorists
4:48 am
forever. >> a finder gentler philip mudd this morning. thank you. there is another information from tropical cyclone pam. bill weir seen it up close. he will join us next to discuss this tragedy. nds craig wilson a ready for you alert the second his room is ready, ya know what he becomes? great proposal! let'stalk more over golf. great. how about over tennis? even better. a game changer! the ready for you alert, only at

4:51 am
the reports of devastation are severe in vanuatu after cyclone pam roared through the island chain northeast of australia. an estimated 90% of housing has been damaged in the capital city of port vila. 60,000 children are in need of
4:52 am
help. at least 11 people have died many more are feared lost. joining us via skype, is bill weir he traveled to vanuatu recently for the first episode of his series "the wonder list." we saw even from your visit there is the remote nature of the area of this world. logistically it's going to be a gigantic challenge to get help to those hard-hit islands. >> exactly right michaela. we're seeing picture of the capital, which is a little deceiving. that's a town of maybe 50,000 60,000 people but there's twice as many in outlying islands. some 60 different inhabited islands, some of them maybe have one landing strip that can take a small single-engine plane, maybe one or two boats. at least based on our attempts
4:53 am
to reach out to our friends back there, it is a communication black hole. some of these islands only have cell towser but only rated for a category 3 cyclone, and this was rated a 5. just finding out who is okay we really can't fathom given our definition of rescue. >> the death toll is at 11 right now. maybe you can give us context on why more people weren't killed given the devastation? >> i think there -- i just think they don't know. in absence of information, they can't give a firm number. but for example on tana these are folks who lived like they have for thousands of years, literally in banyan tree houses maybe a thatch walled. we stayed in a place with the
4:54 am
first concrete floor on the island. so i can't -- i cannot fathom 150 miles an hour winds, literally lashing your self-to a tree that's the only hope. if the boat is gone how do you fish? you know there's no power on a good day anyway but if your battery is dead on the phone, how do you recharge? my heart just breaks. these are some of the sweetest most generous open folks i've ever met. i was drawn there because of their openness and their lack of development, but this storm casts that whole argument about how fast these places should develop into a whole new light. >> it's a toll to the ecosystem, the hume toll they're saying this cyclone is unprecedented in this island's history. thank you for giving us the perspective that you have experienced and sharing it with
4:55 am
us. >> thank you, mick. john kerry? switzerland for a new round of talks. are they close to a deal? we'll get the latest from the state department. that's coming up. it's more than the cloud. it's security - and flexibility. it's where great ideas and vital data are stored. with centurylink you get advanced technology solutions from a trusted it partner. including cloud and hosting services - all backed by an industry leading broadband network and people committed to helping you grow your business. you get a company that's more than just the sum of it's parts. centurylink. your link to what's next.
4:56 am
i'm brian vickers, nascar® driver. i'm kevin nealon comedian. and i'm arnold palmer, professional golfer. know what we have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. me, when i had a blood clot in my leg that could have traveled to my lungs. that's why i took xarelto®, too. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of
4:57 am
dvt and pe blood clots. i took xarelto® for afib... an irregular heartbeat that can lead to a stroke from a blood clot. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding
4:58 am
unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost.
4:59 am
negotiations between the u.s. and iran has begun. we don't know whether they're any closer to the question of sanctions. >> i'm impair recallsed for them. that's close to unprecedented. >> are you going to apologize for this letter? >> not on my life. . could a tv series have uncovered the truth? you do a documentary and come up with this amazing evidence? >> whoa hold on. >> from a high altitude. i've been through worst. this is "new day." >> look at that view. that is beautiful. good morning. welcome back for "new day." chris is off today, and we are happy to be joined by john berman. thanks for being here in any stead. secretary of state john kerry in switzerland this
5:00 am
morning resuming talks and refusing to apologize to iran's leaders for the controversial letter. >> the white house definitely trying to keep congress out of that process, all the author of that letter doubles down. nic robertson is tracking developments for us live from london. >> zarif has gone into these talks with secretary kerry saying there's a lot of technical issues to address here. secretary kerry haz framed it differently. he has said this is more about -- there were a few technical issue toss cross, but really this is a came and time for political judgments. two weeks now to the deadlines for the final agreement to be reached by the end of june. zarif and kerry were supposed to meet sunday. that didn't happen. certainly their deputies were meeting and it was just decided that secretary would get a brief on how the talks had gown
5:01 am
through for the day, so a meeting later today, but later in the day zarif is expected to go to brussels where he'll brief the other members of the european/u.s. negotiating team, if you will along with the russians and chinese on this particular deal, but at the moment the talks do not appear to be getting in i chloro kerry and zarif speaking a difficult language. and another interesting development secretary kerry also speaking about a willingness to sit down at the tape with president al assad of syria. take a listen to this. >> everybody agrees there is no military solution there is only a political solution. >> i am convinced with the efforts of our allies and others there will be increased pressure on assad. >> and you would be willing to negotiate with him? >> with elf to negotiate in the end. >> how does he explain that
5:02 am
shift, knick? nic? >> the state department is saying this isn't a shift at all. it sounds like a change in tone. a year and a half ago kerry was saying assad is no longer a legitimate leaders of his people he needs to step aside. but this really goes back to 2013 the geneva talks which were designed to bring sort of the rebel side and assad's government together in talks. those have stalled. you know back then they tried to get them going again early 2014 but, you know back in 20 -- early 2014 at those talks in geneva and there wasn't a willingness on other side. what secretary kerry is saying now, if enough pressure is brought to bear we can get into talks with bashar al assad's government and he should really step aside, but who will bring that pressure to bear?
5:03 am
-- there was an expectation to get the russians to put pressure on assad, and that idea even seems less likely to be achievable. nic robertson, thank you so much. we want to bring in jen psaki. good morning, can you hear me? >> i can. >> welcome to "new day." let's talk about what secretary kerry has said yesterday about syria and assad. when did the u.s. policy or strategy at least shift on bashar al assad. >> alisyn it has not shifted for more than two years we've been talking about how there has to be a political process. that's what secretary kerry has been referring to. the process has been on hold for some time but no question to bring an end to the suffering of the syrian people the
5:04 am
international committee would need to bring both sides to the table. assad has lost legitimacy. the suns government absolutely continues to believe that. we don't see a future for him in syria. >> you say it has not shifted, however, let me remind you some of the things said in 2011 all up until last year in 2011 president obama said assad must go. that's very different. >> alisyn secretary kerry has said that countless times in recent weeks as well, and continues to believe that. >> isn't that different from negotiating -- >> we're talking about having both sides at the table. you can't have the opposition negotiating with itself. you certainly wouldn't get very far. our goal continues to be as does the goal of the international community, bringing both sides together. that's not a process that exists right now. >> it was just last year jen, in fact a year ago this week that the obama administration ordered the syrian government to suspend its diplomatic and
5:05 am
consular missions in the united states requiring all personnel who are not legal residents to leave the country. again, quite different from saying we're going to sit down at the same table and negotiate. >> i think people are forgetting that we've been talking about a political sit to require both sides to negotiate for some time now. that's been on hold since both sides and since many countries met in switzerland over a year and a half ago. it's not a process that's ongoing. we would love to reboot the process. that's the only way kell is sebringing an end to the suffering of the syrian people. >> jen, what is the plan to get al assad to the table. >> i think that's discussions secretary kerry and others are having with his russian counter parts, his counterparts in the gulf country, and how to get representatives of the regime together at the table with
5:06 am
representatives of the opposition. it's difficult. the opposition is continuing to build strength but right now we're continuing to have discussions how to reignite a process. there isn't a process going on unfortunately. >> it doesn't sound like al assad wants to be a part of the process. just an hour ago, he gave an interview, responding to secretary kerry's comments about negotiating, and let me read to what he said -- any talk on the future of the syrian president is for the syrian people and all the declarations from outside do not concern us. what's your response? >> well i think we have to take anything bashar al assad with a huge chunk of grains of salt. hi's till thousands of people. i think we're going to continue to think of ways to put necessary pressure on including diplomatic ways including training and equipping the syrian opposition that's beginning this month.
5:07 am
that includes continuing to provide additional assistance. we'll stay at it. >> a quarter of a million people have been killed in this conflict the past four years in this conflict in syria. what would any bargaining chip be? if we've taken him stepping down off the table, where does that leave the u.s.? >> first of all, to be clear, nobody sees a future for assad in syria, not the united states not anyone in the international community who's been on the side of the opposition and the side of the syrian people. we're talking about how to exert any kind of pressure we can exert. there's obviously military pressure through our training and equip program, pressure from the international community, diplomatic pressure. if he's someone, as he claims cares about the people in his country, this is something he should be responsive to. >> jen, let's move to iran. we've heard a couple details leak out this morning from the
5:08 am
british foreign minister. what can you tell us about where negotiations are this hour? >> well secretary kerry is on the ground now in switzerland. he met with foreign minister zarif this morning. our negotiators have been on the ground a little longer. we're obviously at crunch time right now. the next couple days leading up to this weekend will be key. we fully expect we will take until the end of the month to determine if we can get to an agreement that both sides can live by. the fact is we continue to believe while there's a lot of technical talks, they're actually both. our technical experts have been working together with each other. that's why we have the secretary of energy with us to delve into those technical peeks, but we're being to keep working at it and keep negotiating for the coming two weeks. it's a key time we're in. >> jen, let's talk about former secretary of state hillary clinton's e-mails.
5:09 am
she said she has turned everything over that's relevant to the state department. when will you release them? >> well it's going to take several months. she turned over 55,000 pages. that is quite a lot. that's several boxes of payments. we need to go through those. we're using foia standards to determine what needs to be redacted. when we go through the process, we will post them online make them available to the media, to the american public to anyone who wants to take a look. we're going to do a first tranche of documents, including the documents that have already gone to the select committee related to their questions around benghazi. >> thank you for all of the information and thanks for coming on "new day." thank you. another teenager arrested for planning to join up with isis. yet another case of young westerners recruited to the isis
5:10 am
fight. cnn's arwa damon is following this such a concern for the families and the communities. >> reporter: it really is and one also has to look at how isis is able to appeal to these teenagers, whether they're male or female. the most recent case is when turkey detained three individuals. they are 17 to 19 years old. they were originally alerted by british intelligence turkish intelance was, and picked up at istanbul's secondary airport as they were trying to enter the country, this happening on friday. on saturday they were deported back to the uk detained there, now currently released on bail, facing terrorism charges. turkey is pointing to this as an example of what needs and can happen when sufficient intelligence is being shared. turkey is saying that it does immediately act porch intelligence when shared and calling for an even broader scope when it comes to intelligence sharing between turkey and europe to try to
5:11 am
prevent these various individuals reaching isis-controlled territory. what also needs to be looked at is how isis is continuously able to recruit individuals, particularly when it comes to teenagers. we also have the case of three teenage girls from britain who did make it all the way to syria. turkey saying in that case british authorities should have alerted them earlier. arwa, thank you for that. so the heir to a prominent new york city real estate company is locked up this morning on murder charges. robert durst was arrested just hours before the finale of an hbo documentary about his suspected role in several murders. that finale included quite a bombhell an open-mike moment that could keep durst behind bars. maybe for good. jean ka sarz joins you. >> reporter: he will face a judge here in a few hours.
5:12 am
a law enforcement source spoke to cnn that was briefed on the situation, and that he drove from houston to new orleans last tuesday, march 10th. he checked into a downtown hole they say using cash using a fake name. when he was arrested late saturday night, had a fake driver's license to him. robert durst is no stranger to the criminal justice system. over a decade ago he was acquitted of first-degree murder charges out of texas. now he faces thor same charges in los angeles. for a slain confidant in beverlily hills. >> an explosive comment caught on a live mike ending the six-party documentary series "the jinx." what he means, unclear, but these are the words of a man who police say is a cold-case murder
5:13 am
suspect. durst whispering to himself in a bathroom after a final interview for the special, which challenges the audience to decide whether the 71-year-old son of one of the most powerful real estate tycoons in new york city is response to the disappearance of his wife the murder of a close friend in 2000 and a neighbor in 2001. the writer looks similar. >> in the final episodes the film makers confront durst after uncovering a letter written to crime novelist susan berman. she was found shot dead over years ago. the handwriting eerily similar to a letter written to police telling them on where to find the body durst denying he wrote it. >> what i see as similarity is really the misspelling in the beverly. other than that the block
5:14 am
letters are block letters. >> reporter: police arrested the heir saturday at a new orleans hotel, now held on a capital murder charge in berman's death, citing additional evidence that's country on to light in the past year. it's unclear what role the documentary played. the millionaire's attorney selling fox news he was underwhelmed by the new developments revealed in the six-party series including his ramblings in the bathroom. >> l.a. county's got a case we'll address those facts in the courtroom, but generally speaking i was underwhelmed. >> the millionaire has long maintained he did not kill berman or his wife who has never been found. >> and we do want to say that cnn and hbo both have as their parent company, time warner. also this morning, the maker of the documentary said on "good morning america" that they have been in contact with law enforcement for several years.
5:15 am
as soon as they found that alleged confession they did take it to law enforcement. also want to say that today's hearing is an extradition hearing. the question is will he fight voluntary going back to los angeles to face these charges. his attorney says he will not, and therefore he'll be bound for california we expect very shortly. alisyn. >> jean what a case. so many strange twists. thanks so much. the lapd says they're questioning suspects in the shootings of two undercover officers. both were in an unmarked vehicle when shots were fired sunday. police say they believe the officers were targeted suffering minor injuries. a 20-year-old man is charged in the shooting of two police officers last week in ferguson. the suspect confessed to pulling the trigger, but says he was not out to target those officers. for the latest let's turn to stephanie elam who is live in ferguson. interesting, i does fire the shots, but i didn't target them is what he's saying.
5:16 am
>> reporter: right. that's exactly the case michaela and they're not ruling out he may have been targeting police but they're saying his story is he had a dispute with a demonstrator or protesters and then he inadvertently hit the two police officers which it's worth pointing out the two men were standing side by side when they were hit. prosecutor saying that they have recovered the weapon as well and they also said it was key that they were getting information from people who were out here demonstrators, as well as people in the community, to help nab the man who was behind the shooting. we also understand the two officers who were shot are recovering and very relieved to know the man behind the shooting is in custody. we also heard from the prosecutor saying that williams was someone known to be a demonstrator out here but i talked to a couple of people who say he is not a demonstrator one man even visiting with williams yesterday, who he said he knew through the community here in the st. louis county
5:17 am
area. he said he admitted to him he's never been out here protesting as part of the mike brown changes that they want to be with the ferguson police department. i'll send it back to you guys in northern. >> stephanie elam thanks so much. boston made a little history. two lbgt groups marched after decades of opposition. the out vets and gay rights group boston pride joined the annual celebration. boston's mayor marty walsh also marched. that ends a may i don't recall boy coit that dates back to 1995. some catholic groups did decline to take parts, saying the event was too focused now on politics. change coming to boston even the most traditional symbol. and apparently to new york too. the parade tomorrow will also have some lbgt representation as well. >> it's nice to see people
5:18 am

5:21 am
5:22 am
a bombshell moment in the case against robert durst, appearing to confess to his crime. in the final episode of "the jinx" we want you to take a listen. of course some details and context clearly are missing, that audio is bone-chilling, this episode ka broadcast a days after he was charged.
5:23 am
cnn and hbo are owned by the same apparently company. joey jackson is also here hln legal analyst. this story kept paul up last night watching it. this is quite a case joey first of all, that audio, we hear him whispering under his breath on a hot mike he has a reasonable expectation of privacy privacy, i understand. >> we can argue over this point, but i believe it could be ruled inadmissible inadmissible. you have an expectation of privacy in the bathroom. he makes the statement as he excuses himself to go to the bathroom with the microphone still a. i think it's problematic. the second issue if we're basing the conviction on a -- there
5:24 am
needs to be other evidence. >> there's a lot of other evidence in that people disappeared suspiciously his actions were suspicious. if you watch the series you'll see how that -- >> it twists and turns, but i think it's totally admissible. people have a misconception you need miranda warnings in order for a contess fession to acceptable. that's only the cops. if you're idiotic enough to speak with a mike on and say i killed them all, tough luck that is going into evidence. >> final point on this you can make the argument they were acting as agents of the state in as much as they were investigating the case, sharing the information. who made them agents -- >> i wish we had time. >> i would love to let you go on this but another point i want to get at is the fact that he even participated in this documentary to begin with.
5:25 am
i want you to listen to the advice that he got from his attorney. take a listen to this. >> i said a zillion times, you can't help yourself. right now you're a free man, you say something inadvertently and you'll find yourself charged in new york or charged in los angeles. our interview is a big risk for you. >> why do you want to do an interview? >> a gigantic risk. let's say i catch a case and you're advising me you're going to tell me never, ever to 'em open a mouth. >> 100%. first of all you're never catching a case. you're way too classy for that. moving forward attorneys advise you not to speak. ultimately speaking in any context is certainly misadvised and ill-informed. i would have recommended against it. >> see, he's changing his position but i don't mean to go
5:26 am
after that. however, it's idiotic for him to have appeared. the attorneys knew that. remember authorities were within an inch of making a case against him in these two cases, but they lacked one thing, and he provided the link by saying i killed them all. that's enough now probably for a jury to evaluate whether he committed the murder. >> if it gets to the jury. >> if it gets to the jury. >> if that issue gets to the jury. let's also look at the timeline. i'll start with you, paul on this one, there's a significant gap in the timeline of the crimes. 1982 his wife kathleen goes missing. in 20 000 a gigantic gap is there, and does that put you as an advance or disadvantage as his defense attorney? >> well it makes it more difficult for the prosecution, this gap, because usually with serial killers, you're going to see serial killings timewise
5:27 am
not sterns imp periods of time at least that's what people think. also remember another thing. when they hear the los angeles case they're probably not going to hear anything about the prior killings so the case will rise and fall on the facts of the individual case so it's easy to sit back at the hbo series and say they finally got him, but for the jury it's only one case at a time. >> we had one of the judges in the case on the air earlier today. she essentially said that the prosecution failed to make their case and that's why he got off, even though it seemed that everything was pointing to that. do you agree? >> it would appear tube -- and we're talking about the case in which he was charged, acquitted of the murder even though he admitted it said it wasself defense, and then he dismembers the body. the judge had misgivings about how it was prosecuted. when you sit there as a judge in the courtroom, the reality is
5:28 am
judges often sometimes subject themselves so they oftentimes understand exactly what's going on and this judge felt that the prosecution didn't follow up. she was very concerned about it. >> usually in self-defense cases you don't dismember the person after you defend yourself. >> four days of testimony, he spent four days describing exactly what he did and got acquitted. >> it's an unusual and incredible story, grisly to say the least. can you sound off on this. tweet us go to facebook and we'll see your comments there. alisyn? two weeks, that's how long officials have to hammer out the framework of a iran nuclear deal. we'll tell you what obstacles stand in the way.

. i'm not going to apologize for an unconstitutional and unthought out, by somebody who has been in the united states senate for 60-some days. that's just inappropriate. secretary of state john kerry hardly hiding hi contempt there at what senator tom cotton from arkansas did writing a letter to iran's leaders. the secretary is in switzerland
5:40 am
meeting with iran's foreign minister with the deadline for a framework of a deal sometime within the next two weeks. hear to weigh in is former congressman, former house intelligence committee chairman mike rogers. i'll refer to you as chairman through the interview, that's what i'm used to. would you have signed that letter? >> i probably wouldn't have signed the her. i think senator corker had the right approach by trying to put a bipartisan group together to oppose the deal. they have done that several proposals that say hey, not so fast. i think that would have been the better approach. >> you would not have signed it why? >> if that letter were directed to the president, i think that letter would have been entirely fine. you have to ask yourself what did you accomplish by sending it to a foreign leader? i don't think there was anything unconstitutional or el legal, any of that. i thought the addressee could have changed and changed the impact of that letter. now the focus is on everything
5:41 am
other than what is the structure of the iranian deal. that's why i thought senator corker's approach was better. it focusing on the framework of the deal. if you think about it in in a bipartisan way, our allies our arab league partners are opposed. a lot of people are -- that ought to send shivers up everyone's spine. >> senator tom cotton responded a bit to the thinly veiled disdain in secretary kerry's comments right there. senator cotton essentially says i'm sort of helping you out here. let's listen to what he says. >> the fact that president obama doesn't see this letter as a way to get more leverage at the negotiating table justunder scores that he is not negotiating for the hardest deal possible. >> what do you make of that? essentially he's saying that secretary kerry could be hey, look i have these crazy guys back here in the u.s. senate that aren't going to back anything. you better negotiate with me
5:42 am
because i'm the best option you have. >> if i was in the negotiating room i would use every piece of leverage we have. the problem is -- and again i saw this from the very, very beginning -- the framework they laid out already set us in a place that most people think we shouldn't be which is allowing some enrichment capability to exist in iran. so again, i think the problem is you have the president has isolated himself from members of the senate and the house, both republicans and democrats. i always think that's a bad idea. now they're in this position where i think people are taking it personal about they're going to get a deal or not going to get a deal. that is a dangerous place to be. i think they all ought to sit down for a minute hopefully over a cocktail and work this out. simply because the ramifications of this deal are so serious. saudi arabia has already announced that they will have a nuclear deal with south korea
5:43 am
south korea. they've already said if they get that deal that means we start where thats. so it's not just about iran anymore. those negotiations have to factor that and with this tit for tat between the senate and the president, i don't think it's helpful. >> mr. chairman you were saying the framework is a bad deal into you it allows for enrichment correct? >> it allows their capable to exist. now they're talking about how many centrifuges, how many of those they get to have. it should have been zero now they're into the thousands. >> but they have thousands already. they have thousands right now. the sanctions that were in place did not stop that. so what then would you do to stop them from having even more centrifuges that allow even more enrichment? >> two things. the talks are fine but remember the talks for the simple case of getting a deal not productive. the sanctions we were finding is
5:44 am
finally it was risings up the sanctions were starting to take a bite on the elite, car parts, cash so if you think about what happened and the president, by the way, opposed all of those sanctions. he ended up signing those bills, but they came through a bipartisan house and senate vote to the president's desk so he had already been on report opposing sanctions. the first thing they did to get talks was ease sanctions. the one thing that iran needed more than anything was cash. they gave them cash access to precious metals and that certainly was concerning. that eased the tension. so the whole point of sanctions is to make your life pretty miserable so you will come to the table and negotiate. we did it backwards. we gave in gave all the pressure off, and now we're trying to get a better deal. they're saying maybe we'll get around to it, maybe we won't, but you will allow us to enrich. that's the key thing. that's what israel opposes, what saudi arabia opposeses.
5:45 am
places like uae will come back and say if they get it we're going to enrich too. >> of course people are saying the sanctions as they were could not last forever. there wasn't the international consensus to do that. that will have to be a discussion for another day. mr. chairman thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. a heart-stopping scene at a drag race in florida. the car breaks in two, but the driver larry dixon lives to tell about it. we will talk with him live, straight ahead. the real question that needs to be asked is "what is it that we can do that is impactful?" what the cloud enables is computing to empower cancer researchers. it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome; with the microsoft cloud we can analyze 100 per day. whatever i can do to help compute a cure for cancer, that's what i'd like to do.

the run, the car is picking up speed. it's running close to 320 miles an hour and -- but it's so fast. i knew the front end collapsed based on unfortunately experience. having that happen again, and really you know it goes up in the air and you're trying to focus on something, and just hoping that you land back on the racetrack and not into the grass. you want to land on the asphalt and scrub automatic that speed off. fortunately i did. >> i think i heard you say this was not the worst crash that you had. >> no. >> how on earth is that possible? >> anytime you walk away from something like that that's not bad. all the equipment we wear especially our responsesors those as safety conscious as i am about things. every time you go down the race
5:51 am
trash, you're prepared for something like that to happen. you hope it doesn't, but if it does you have all the equipment in place to take care of you. that's why i'm comfortable with what i'm doing and getting back in the car and getting ready for the next race next week in charlotte. >> my gosh larry. it looks like the front of your car just buckles. what went wrong? >> the chassis failed. it's to be determined on the cause of it but obviously it shouldn't have done that. so the nhra our sanctioning body for the races, they impounded the car overnight and their investigators looked at it. they released the car to us yesterday morning. we loaded it in our hauler it's headed back up to the shop in indianapolis and we'll get a better look at things. obviously we'll try to prepare the next car so it doesn't do that again. >> you keep uses words like next and the next time you do this the next race.

there are people in your life mr. dixon that are probably saying we need to have a good talk with you. what do you tell them about that that you were made to do this? that you're built to do this? you're going to keep getting back in the car? >> you sound like you've talked to my wife. she sent me a text later in the day. obviously i called her from the ambulance to let her know everything was already, but she sent me a text and said -- how many of your nine lives have you used up? if you're as six or seven, you can go to charlotte. >> look here's the deal happy wife happy life larry dixon. >> you've got it. >> take care of that beautiful wife of yours, and stay happy, stay healthy and please stay inside the car in one piece. >> i would rather get on your show with trophies and such as opposed to doing 300-mile-an-hour somer assaults. >> let's work on that. >> right on. >> it didn't even mess up his
