tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN December 3, 2014 2:00am-3:01am PST
reaction? breaking another jiet, at a time ka that refusing to issue a nationwide recall with concerns that the air bags are likely deadly. the response likely to set up a showdown at a house committee meeting today. and reports of whether the wife of the leader of isis is in custody. someone's in custody, but is she his wife. >> who is she? it's so interesting that they think that maybe the women in his life are leaders in the isis movement. >> good morning. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm christine romans. it's wednesday, december 3rd. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's start in ferguson. was it the outburst of a grief-stricken father or was it a crime? multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating whether michael brown's stepfather louis head incited a riot last week. it happened monday night after a grand jury decided not to indict officer darren wilson in brown's
death. head reached out to comfort brown's sobbing mother, his wife, and then he turned to the crowd and said this. burn this [ bleep ] burn this [ bleep ] down burn this [ bleep ] down. >> two federal investigations into the ferguson police department, brown's shooting and its aftermath still moving ahead. they're expected to wrap up by the time the attorney general leaves office in february. the national guard is now starting to scale back its presence there. missouri governor jay nixon is giving no firm timetable but he has announceded a systematic redmukz the 1300 guardsmen stationed in the city. let's check in with cnn's george howell with the latest out of ferguson. >> reporter: the headline in
ferguson, john and christine, it really is all about the investigation. police are promising to look into any angle to find anyone responsible for the damage that we saw play out here the night of the riots here in ferguson. and specifically, they're looking at that video that may many of us have seen, the video of michael brown's stepfather, louis head, where he was basically telling the crowd to burn the city down, burn things down. remember, we have heard from michael brown's mother. leslie mcspadden saying at that moment he was just very angry. he was very frustrated with the outcome of the grand jury, and he made those comments in that context. and we've also heard from his attorney benjamin crump, from the family's attorney, saying the same thing. but police are looking into the possibility that those comments could have changed the mood of the crowd and incited a riot. incited the looting that we saw play out that night. we understand that the ferguson police department has looked into that.
and also the st. louis county police department will be looking into it as well. they have interviewed people who know mr. head. they also plan to interview mr. head himself. police again making the point that they're not just singling out louis head here. they are going to go aggressively to track down anyone responsible. anyone that they can determine who was behind the looting and the damage that we saw play out in ferguson. john, christine. >> all right. former nba great charles barkley is speaking out against the investigation into louis head's action. the journalist sports basketball analyst is standing behind his comments about looting in ferguson. and agrees that the grand jury's decision not to indict wilson but barkley tells cnn brooke baldwin that police should not be investigating michael brown's stepfather for inciting the
riot. >> i think that just clouds the discussion. with the entire situation, it's just so much noise going on, you never get to the crux of the issue you need to be discussing. so, no, i don't think they should pursue charges against him. anyone who walks out peacefully, who protests peacefully, that's what this country was bit on. i have no problem with that whatsoever. but to be burning people's property, burning police cars, looting people's stores, that's 100% ridiculous. >> you can see more of this really terrific interview between brooke baldwin and charles barkley on "new day" at 6:00 a.m. eastern. we're getting reports of a woman detained by lebanese security officials as they tried to cross from lebanon into syria. lebanon officials saying she is one of the wives of the leader abu bakr al baghdadi but just
within the hour, they posted a statement she is is not one of al baghdadi's wives. nic robertson is there. nic, what do we know about this woman? this was on saturday. they've had her in custody for sometime, likely debriefing. >> reporter: she's the lady called saja al dulaimi. it's a big tribe. they've had a chance to listen publicly to what lebanese authorities have been saying for a day now saying actually this isn't one of al baghdadi's two wives. she is married to another woman from the al dulaimi tribe, but not this. sources say they still believe it is a wife of baghdadi.
this woman played an important role within the organization itself. is an important figure with important connections. now, we have to look at this in total. and iraq was playing a role in bringing about her arrest. we heard this from our own sources. they say that iraq, syria, and lebanon were all involved in capturing this woman. that the united states in conjunction with iraq played a role. that this is somebody who is a valued target. somebody they've been trying to get, putting together a plan for over a month. that they were waiting to try to capture. so, i think as the dust settles on this, we're probably going to learn a lot more. some of it not surprisingly will be conflicting. will we ultimately get to the truth? possibly not all of it. what does appear to be important was that this woman was the subject is of a concerted effort to bring about her capture, christine. >> yeah, multiple governments
working together to try to -- to try to round up and bring in the people closest to abu bakr al baghdadi. what kind of information could she have or could a wife this man have, that's incredibly important to these officials? >> reporter: if she's a wife. so i think, now, in light of what the iraqis are saying, you know, we have to qualify it and say, if she's a wife. and he had two wives. and if he was spending time with this wife. and it's not uncommon for these sort of commanders to spend a lot of time away from home because that's an easy way to get to them. if they had spent time together recently, then she would have useful potentially actionable intelligence that could be used to try to find baghdadi. broader than that, she may know his patents of movement, the people around him. how many people. the room, the house, the
facility, the village where he's hiding if there's an operation put into -- to try to capture or kill him. >> what a mystery as they try to zero in on this guy and the people around hill. nic robertson in london, thank you for that. expect fireworks this morning when air bag making tack kata appear alongside safety highway safety regulators. tack takata is ignoring the deadline for the recall. the airings have fired shrapnel at motorists and have somebody killed. andrew stevens is standing by in tokyo with more on this. good morning, andrew. >> reporter: good morning, john. yeah, that's right, takata put out a statement today saying they did recognize that the authorities in the u.s. did want them to expand that recall nationwide. they didn't actually rule it out in the statement. but, certainly, they didn't move on and say they would comply.
so they really didn't give any indication as to why they weren't prepared to comply. we spoke to the press office here in tokyo, john, and asked them what's behind this. and they said -- they told us that it's really up to the automakers themselves to do a recall. and they would support the automakers. there are ten automakers involved who have these faulty air bags made by takata. it's up to them. they also said that they thought the best way to deal with the recall was to go to the priority areas first, which is those humid states that we've been talking about. florida, hawaii. those states there, where the incidents of these air bags exploding have been much higher. they say, that is the focus. but no doubt, there is going to be a lot of fireworks when the congress hearing starts. they're going to be grilled. takata is actually putting up his quality control head. and he's going to come into
pretty sharp questioning as to why they want to see this restricted recall, when in fact there are many, many more cars, perhaps in the millions that need to be looked at. probably as a matter of real urgency, john. >> there will no doubt be a lot of questions today. andrew stevens, thanks very much. break news overnight, a pair of car bomb attacks. we're told the blast was record outside of the international airport somalia's capital. no reports in deaths in that. a guard is dead and six people heard following an taattack outside of the residence of the newly pointed ambassador. and new reports in the allegations of bill cosby. radar online is supporting a federal lawsuit filed in los angeles by a woman named judy

breaking overnight, a big shake-up in israeli politics. israel's prime minister has essentially fired two government ministers and has called for early elections. prime minister benjamin netanyahu has dismissed the country's finance and justice ministers. in a televised news conference, netanyahu blasted the pair for attacking his government and policies from within. joining us now with the latest, cnn's ben wedeman from jerusalem. ben, sometimes, israeli politics can be confusing from the outside. this is pretty clear, this is netanyahu wants to start fresh. >> reporter: that's right, he wants to start fresh. he wants to get rid of this coalition. have these elections. and he hopes to form a new one. but if you thought israeli politics are confusing from the outside, from the inside, they're fairly confusing as
well. one opinion poll found that 55% of people are posed to holding elections. the last elections were just 22 months ago. and one israeli newspaper in an editorial today said that this cabinet was possibly the worst in israel's history. it's accomplished very little positive, but it's had a series of setbacks. there was this 50-day war with gaza which many people feel was wildly expensive and didn't accomplish the disarming of hamas. and netanyahu has been pushing for a harder line, for instance, against iran. but if anything, the west is getting closer to iran. the economy is in bad condition. and israel has seen its relations with the west, with the united states, become very chilly. just last night, the french parliament voted to recognize the palestinian state. that's after similar votes in the uk and ireland. in spain. and elsewhere in europe.
so, certainly, israel is seeing itself more isolated than ever before. and not much to boast when it culls to this cabinet. >> all right, ben wedeman for us. confusing from the outside and from the inside, israeli politics. thanks, ben. let's take a look at what's coming up on "new day." >> chris cuomo joins us. >> how are you, my tv brother and sister. we are going to take a look at some of the fallout from ferguson that really is new. first, michael brown's stepdad, you remember the incident where the mother was very upset. he's embracing her. he turns to to be saying we're going to burn this down, we're going to burn this down. did he intend to start a riot? he's being investigated. is this a case they should make? and also we're going to take a look at this hands up don't shoot phenomenon. some are saying it's based on a false narrative because the grand jury found is that it,
whether or not michael brown's hands are up. and is that what people are talking about, is this just michael brown or something else? we're going to take that on. also today, guys, we may get a decision from new york city, a grand jury that is looking at another case that could become something controversial. eric garner, the man who was he died after being restrained by police officers in new york city, all on videotape. we're going to take that on. we're also going to get you to international news this morning. lebanon said it captured one of the wives of the isis leader. and we're going to take you through what we know about that situation as well. >> chris cuomo, so much to take on today. thank you. could it be ferguson all over again? you just heard chris saying a grand jury expecting to make a decision in the choke hold death of a young man killed in new york while being arrested by new york city police officers. we've got those details -- ahead.
