of the unarmed teenager as the community mourns the teenager. the latest overnight ahead. good morning, welcome to "early start," i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. it is august 26, 4:00 a.m. in the east. up first, the u.s. is weighing new military action against isis in syria. president obama has now authorized flights over syria talking drones and spy planes. the first could happen at anytime now. this comes as isis seized a keierre base in syria and the syrian government is ready to accept support from the u.s. and others to fight the islamic terrorists. as for a possible isis attack here in the united states, the white house says there is no evidence of a current plot, but they are concerned about the potential threat. cnns nick paton walsh.
1:02 am
the latest news, the authorization for the reconnaissance flights over syria itself. >> reporter: this is the prelude to air strikes which no u.s. official thinks they can fight isis without because they work in syria and iraq. it's a complex task putting drones in the air. normally, you like to put it with spies on the ground. the u.s. struggling to do that. it's extraordinarily hard to get people to film for you in isis territory as journalists. that will be a challenge for them. without it, they are limited to what they have in pakistan, signature strikes, target suspicious groupings of military. that's going to be a complex task for them. the serious government saying yes, we would welcome you, but setting rules, saying they have to agree on what is done.
1:03 am
washington isn't going to want to get into the nitty gritty of a contact with the assad regime given the tens of thousands of civilians they have killed. that's behind the radicalization that spawned isis in the first place. we are seening recognition in washington that isis presents a threat not only in the middle east, but the united states. the military action may now spread to syria. john? >> an almost impossible situation where the united states has to figure out a way to go after isis without helping the assad regime, which exactly one year ago this week, the united states was considering bombing. >> absolutely. bear in mind, too, many analysts think the assad regime has done little to fight isis. they are seeing isis move against the rebels who were a problem for the assad regime.
1:04 am
their enemy's enemy. yes, since the focus changed to iraq and the attacks, there have been attacks by the syrian air force against isis. they are sounding the alarms and moving way too late. they were not complicit, but unwilling to tackle them in the earlier stages and pointing out the syrian regime's brutality permitted the prophesy to come true. the united states increasing number of those fighting against the regime and in northern syria are terrorist groups. >> difficult to find friends in the region. great to have you with us nick. isis is a threat in iraq. u.s. military officials say defeating isis will be a long process requiring more than just air strikes, including support from iraq's regional neighbors. the u.n. accuses isis of crimes
1:05 am
against humanitarian. we have live in baghdad. the sectarian violence is on the rise. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, just this morning, christine, at least ten people were killed and 34 wounded. it was a parked car bomb that detonated. it comes a day after multiple attacks struck in baghdad. one of those bombings is suicide attack in eastern baghdad on a shia mosque. that was claimed by isis later in the day. they say it's in retaliation for the brutal attack on the sunni mosque in baghdad on friday. that's when gunmen stormed a mosque killing at least 70 worshippers. following that attack, there's
1:06 am
been concern about that unleashing, that cycle of revenge, retaliation, the counter attack we have seen in the past. sectarian violence in iraq has been on the rise. levels of violence, sectarian in nature that we have not seen since the height of the war, 2006 and 2007. officials i have spoken to said they are concerned this country could be one major attack away from all out sectarian war, civil war. again, isis really does exploit this sort of environment, the sectarian tension and division. it's something isis, al qaeda and iraq exploit it. officials say that is exactly what isis is doing now. it also exploits the grievances of the sunni population to get their support, get a foothold in sunni areas and recruit more.
1:07 am
>> certainly a troubling statement, no question. thank you. isis is the richest terrorist organization in the world. it is using the currency of the oil in the middle east to fund it. syria now controls seven oil fields in northern iraq. the capacity of 80,000 barrel as day, sells it on the black market for $25 to $60 a barrel. bringing in an estimated $3 million a day in oil sales. criminal activity like kidnapping, smuggling and extortion a huge source of revenue as well as wealthy donors around the world funding them. futures barely moving. look at this, 2,000 the s&p 500 above 2,000 yesterday. closing at a high 8%. >> very exciting. >> it's a big deal.

ukraine's government will be rapidly changing with poroshenko calling for early elections. the pro-russian insurgency rages on. vladimir putin could be face-to-face today on the sidelines of a trade summit they are both attending. we are live in ukraine. the meeting between the two heads, boy i'd like to be a fly on the wall for that. >> reporter: i wouldn't hold out too much hope that anything will come from this meeting. angela merkel, the german chancellor said the only chance of any kind of peace being reached here is if the russian/ukrainian border is sealed and russia makes sure no more fighters and weapons cross into ukrainian territory. russia denies they are sending
1:24 am
russian troops and weapons crossing over the border. they say the two check points in rebel hands have monitors from the osce, the organization in europe. they are there and can see what's coming through. this is a very, very long order. in the last 24 hours, christine, there have been reports from the ukrainian anti-terror operation of two armored military convoys both in the north of the conflict area and down in the south prompting the accusation that russia is trying to open a second front down in the south. there has been artillery shelling from across the border into ukraine and also last night ukraine says it captured ten russian paratroopers in the conflict zone and they have provided testimony. there's video where they say they were not told they were going to be crossing into ukraine. they thought they were on
1:25 am
military exercises. early in the morning they were put in a military convoy and only the officers knew they would be crossing the border to help the rebels in their fight. as you can see behind me, the conflict really brought devastation in the towns and villages as the ukrainian army and pro-russian rebels. ukraine pushed them out. the rebel strongholds -- from our contacts on the ground in both cities from journalist colleagues, those there that can monitor the situation are finding it very, very dangerous and very difficult to get out. christine? >> thank you diana. >> 25 minutes after the hour now. the u.s. moving in on isis. a new attack strategy may be launched to take down the terror organization. as the islamic militants gain ground in syria, it's too little too late. live team coverage ahead.

michael brown was killed by a police officer. why this evidence is surfacing only now. that, as the community pays its final respects. welcome back to "early start," everyone. great to see you. i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. it's 30 minutes past the hour. a new front in the battle against isis militants. president obama signing off on flights over syria, concerned about the threat of isis. it could be a prelude to isis targets inside syria. it comes as the militants seized a keierre base in the country. the government says it is ready to accept support from the u.s. and others to fight them. nick paton walsh is live in london. good morning, nick. >> reporter: christine, that decision by the united states to authorize drones, may put the fear into isis. they haven't had to deal with much of an air force in the past. many militants experienced in
1:31 am
iraq during the american military presence there, perhaps knowing how to hide among the population. it will put greater pressure upon them. it's no easy task. spies like human intelligence on the ground to back up what eyes in the skies are showing them. local populations can turn against the drones in the sky. complex task ahead. in u.s. official believes you can properly attack isis. it's a threat to the united states. you have to chase them down in syria as well. you mentioned the syrian government. yes, they will welcome u.s. involvement, but set enough rules, frankly, to make any genuine cooperation possible. washington doesn't want to get
1:32 am
in bed with the assad regime. remember that weapons attack, too? that means isis will further radicalize the opposition turning toward extremists to try to win the war. it's a phenomenally messy conflict. drones may be the most distance washington wants to keep from it. >> a really messy conflict. the united states does not want to embolden bashar al assad. they want him out. by attacking isis, would you strengthen the modern opponents to assad? >> they have been so fractured for years now, the sudden idea of overnight arming them, equipping them is a tough challenge. many say they have had their chance. they have shown they are unable to get along. a fight against isis. isis is more disciplined. the regime equipped by russia
1:33 am
and iran. with the isis advance against those areas, we are facing a crisis for the moderate syrian rebels. christine? >> nick paton walsh, thanks. >> a great job of laying out the stark reality and bleak choices for the u.s. >> really bleak. so many conflicting alliances. you can see how isis has grown up and is able to take advantage of this casm and taken advantage of it well. >> a car bomb in baghdad killing ten and injuring dozens of others. it follows a series of weekend bombing that is killed 20. the fight against isis continues in iraq. the united nations accused them of crimes against humanity including the shia prisoners in
1:34 am
mosul. we are live in baghdad where sectarian violence is on the rise, something that plagued the country well over a decade now. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, john, as you mentioned, this morning, according to police, the car bomb detonating in baghdad killing ten people, moving 34 others. this comes a day after we saw multiple bombings targeting shiite areas here in baghdad and also in the holy shia city in the south of iraq. in baghdad, one of those attacks on monday was a suicide bomber that struck a shia mosque. also in eastern baghdad, in a predominantly shia area. that was claimed by isis saying it was retaliation, revenge for the brutal attack we saw on friday. as you recall, the attack was carried out by suspected shia
1:35 am
militia men killing at least 70 worshippers. when that attack happened, there's a lot of concern seeing an attack, a counter attack, the retaliation and revenge that could reignite the country's sectarian civil war. a lot of fear about that. those kind of divisions and tensions really exploited by isis. as we have seen, they take advantage of the sunni grievances to solidify their presence in this country, especially in sunni areas. over the past few months, i have spoken to officials who have been concerned about this violence. the kind of violence we have not seen here since what is called the dark days of the iraqi sectarian war between 2006-2007. last year, the numbers really spiked. we are seeing it continue into 2014. numbers we have not seen since 2008 when the violence levels
1:36 am
dropped. these officials, western officials have been concerned that the country is one major attack away from that all-out civil sectarian war. >> the sectarian strike undermining the stability needed to fight isis. thanks so much. the family of freed american journalist, peter theo curtis is waiting a reunion they thought would never happen. he was held by militants nearly two years. his mother tells abc after learning he was alive and free, she reached out to the mother of journalist, james foley. >> before i told my daughter, i sat down and sent an e-mail to diane foley. we have been through so much together. i didn't want her to hear it from the media, first. >> do you know what you'll say to him?
1:37 am
