tv   CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin  CNN  June 2, 2015 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT

12:00 pm
ut was in the passenger seat. it says "please be aware that wild animals by nature are dangerous. keep your windows closed and doors locked at all times." a simple mistake to make, but one with very tragic consequences. the park says it is reviewing its practices, but the system is flawless if the follow the rules. brooke? brooke? >> thank you very much. now this -- breaking news here as we go into hour two. you're watching cnn i'm brooke baldwin. a heads up any moment we'll take you live to boston. boston police will be speaking, the police commissioner, suffolk d.a. special agent in charge talking about what happened this morning. the terror suspect who died at the hands of law enforcement. this just in, new details about this man. in his 20s he was shot and killed in this parking lot. the law enforcement official says the victim had been under surveillance by the joint terrorism task force for at least a couple of years.
12:01 pm
authorities believe he had become radicalized by isis and other extremist influences. when officers from boston police and fbi approached him early this morning, boston's police commissioner says he turned on them with a huge knife. >> the officers asked again, gave several commands for him to drop the weapon. unfortunately he came at the officers and they did what they were trained to do. >> that is one side of this. you have the victim's brother imam saying this -- "pray for my younger brother usaama rahim, shot in the back by boston police and dying, his last words "i can't breathe." with me deborah feyerick and national security analyst jowl yet kayen once -- juliet kayen, once a police officer. let me turn to you with the
12:02 pm
latest. he's been under surveillance for a couple of years and apparently radicalized among other influences isis. >> that's what the fbi official is saying telling evan perez out of washington. rahim was at the bus stop this morning when he was confronted by two investigators. apparently he had time according to his brother a facebook posting, to call their father on the phone because he needed a witness. now the brother makes no mention of this sort of military-style knife which is what investigators are saying he basically waved at them which caused them to shoot him. we know that jttf investigator had them on their radar, we're learning for about two years. that they were monitoring change in his behavior, in his activity. the specific threat it appears
12:03 pm
was against police officers. that's information that recently came to light. why they decided to question him now, it's unclear, whether this was something that was imminent whether the attack or the alleged attack was going to take place. but we do -- we are now being told that he had other people he was in contact with. whether -- >> let me cut you off. let's go live to the news conference happening in boston. >> and the fbi agent in charge of the boston area, vince risi. at approximately 7:18 today, our officers in conjunction with the joint terrorism task force were involved in a surveillance of a known suspect wanted for some terrorist-related information that we had received. as a result of that information, our officers approached the
12:04 pm
individual for questioning. the officers were unarmed, they haven't had their -- hadn't had their guns out. at that point, the suspect in question came at the officers. we have video depicting this individual coming at officers while the officers are retreating. the individual in question has what can be described as a large military knife. the officers retreating and that's from the video we have available as far as witness accounts. they kept retreating verbally giving commands to drop the weapon drop the weapon. and at some point, the individual proximity came close that the officers' lives were in danger. when two officers discharged their weapons. the individual from what i
12:05 pm
understand initially has been obviously deceased. he was hit with what we believe two shots one to the torso and one to the abdomen. he's been identified as usaama rahim, a 26-year-old male who resides in rossendale. it's an active investigation. we really can't go into too much detail. again, it's an investigation that's been going on for some time by the joint terrorism task force. and again i've said it's a difficult part of our job when we have to take a life. clearly in these circumstances, the fbi and boston police did everything they could possibly do to get this individual in to drop his knife and at some point unfortunately we had to take his life. at that point, i'm going to turn
12:06 pm
it over to district attorney dan connelly who will answer questions about the death investigation. then fbi director risi will entertain some questions regarding the fbi's role. then we'll open it up to questions. this is the knife that was used. i can put it up here -- michael you want to hold that? that's the particular knife that the officers were retreating and was recovered from the scene. >> thank you very much commissioner. as commissioner evans mentioned, my name is dan connelly i'm district attorney in suffolk county. whenever there is a sudden or unnatural death that occurs in suffolk county the district attorneys respond to the scene as well and conduct an
12:07 pm
investigation. and as i role -- it is our role to direct and aid in investigations. it's no different if it's a police-involved shooting or otherwise. this morning, shortly after the incident occurred, of course we did respond. i responded myself to the scene and began the investigation into the death of the individual who expired in rossendale earlier this morning. the role of the district attorney is to determine whether or not the law enforcement officers involved who exercised force did so with justification. either in self-defense or in defense of others. that investigation is just beginning. i've assigned my first assistant district attorney patrick hagan to lead the investigation along with boston police firearms discharge investigation team under the direction of superintendent greg long and deputy superintendent john
12:08 pm
brown. i have every confidence that they'll do every investigation along with assistant d.a. pat hague and ed zabin. i also want to thank special agent in charge vincent lisi this morning. when i arrived at the scene -- >> we're going to pull away there this. we've been listening here to police commissioner d.a. speaking there in boston talking about what happened this morning. specifically also showing the picture, this is the first time we've seen this image of this large military-style knife that the joint terrorism task force was confronted with this morning at the bus stop when ultimately they shot and killed the suspect. he's been named as usaama rahim, 26 years of age, from rossendale in the boston area. i have juliet cayenne with me and deborah feyerick. juliet when you're listening to all of this and hearing from -- the report that he had been -- under surveillance for two years from you know, a group that you used to work under, the joint terrorism task force. what -- what has to happen for
12:09 pm
the task force to go from surveying someone to showing up at a bus stop at 7:00 in the morning to question an individual? >> that's a great question. that is what is no uweek in this. take away -- so unique about this. take away the death now. it is very, very rare for the boston police and the fbi to do a sort of-foot surveillance together. it means that they had both jurisdictions, local as well as federal, both jurisdictions had some capability to bring a case against him that's why the surveillance was occurring. would be additional, a lot of information that came in to suggest he was going to do something imminent or close to imminent. that's why they were following him. the standards are not excessively high but there are standards to begin an investigation like this. so this is unique is in the sense that they were clearly watching someone who they had concerns with. and there's some media reports they're in the last two or three
12:10 pm
weeks, the investigation of him ticked up, although he may have been on a number on, a list for the last two years. if that's true -- and i'm just looking at the calendar here. something to be aware of. if that's true, that means that they are sort of -- additional surveillance of him was aligned with the tsarnaev trial, the trial that just ended about three weeks ago with the death penalty sentence. that's something like that someone like me from the outside who knows the inner workings what triggered this approach this morning. i can't tell how long the knife was. and i did not hear the very good and competent commissioner evans say what the length of the knife was. but that's going to be relevant, too, in terms of whether the police officers felt they were under threat. >> you made a point about tsarnaev a detail i want to get to deb in a second. obviously they weren't just looking at him. according to evan perez out of
12:11 pm
washington, d.c. there were two associates who were radicalized by isis or other extremist elements. so if you have the joint terrorism task force, you know folks coming in to question this man, what -- what about the other two as this is happening simultaneously this morning? >> my guess would be at least in a good investigation is all three were being surveilled simultaneously. the moment the incident occurred this morning -- because we simple don't know what triggered their interaction. it was purposeful or just a series of events. the other two suspects were immediately contacted or surveyed. i have to assume they have been contacted or are under surveillance now. >> finally to you deb, as we were talking this man usaama rahim, his brother is a well-known imam in the boston area who we've talked to at cnn. >> that's exactly right.
12:12 pm
he posted quickly on facebook but also twitter asking people to support his brother, who is now deceased. but this is a man, imam ibrahim rahim, known to the islamic society of boston. they want answers as much as anybody else. this man actually after the marathon bombing in 2013 came out and said that he and other imams would refuse to official at tom land-- at tamerlan tsarnaev's funeral because what he did was so abhorrent to them and to islam that no imam would official at the funeral. as you know tamerlan tsarnaev was effectively buried in a potter's field. no one effectively wanted to take him. the brother is supporting this man, usaama rahim. we don't know whether the three individuals were conspireingconspiring. whether they were actively and aggressively talking on line, and whether they had gone in the words of the fbi, law enforcement, operational. so the big unknown is as juliet
12:13 pm
says, was this an accidental encounter where they went to talk to him and he turned, or -- >> was it specific -- >> was there a specific sort of arrest that box office to be negotiated. and we really don't have the details. >> all right. thank you very much. juliet and deborah. more breaking news here. bombshell on the world's most popular sport as the explosive corruption scandal unravels. the man in charge who's just re-elected for the fifth term. he is out. hear why. plus the race to save survivors trapped inside this cruise ship. rescue crews hearing cries for help from people really on what they considered this trip of a lifetime. we'll take you there. and the u.s. says iran had frozen its nuclear stockpile through the negotiations over its program. but surprise apparently inspectors say the stockpile has increased. it's bigger.

more breaking news here. we'll go to the pentagon. there's a new stunning development in the big live anthrax shipping accident. barbara starr can tell us exactly what the latest turn of events looks like. barbara? >> reporter: good afternoon, brooke. cnn has just learned exclusively the pentagon now investigating whether it the department of defense in the pentagon accidentally, vin inad -- inadvertently received a live shipment of anthrax. as part of the overall investigation, let's regroup here. there were three shipments. they were supposed to be dead anthrax that went to 12 states and three countries. about 30 different facilities. in the last few minutes, cnn learned exclusively the pending police force, force protection agency the cops that protect
12:19 pm
everybody at the pentagon they are on the list of senate received a suspect shipment. now they have to go back, they have to test it and determine once and for all did they inadvertently get live:00 at the pentagon or is it dead anthrax as it was supposed to be? the big problem is the original batch did test live. now everything has to be gone back through. you might ask yourself why would the pentagon police force even have anthrax. apparently they regularly get shipment of dead anthrax. they use it to calibrate the biodetection equipment around the pentagon as part of the levels of detection in this building. now they are on the list. the police agency as s one of the places where they have to go back now at least 30 places around the country plus australia, canada and south korea, concern that they inadvertently got live anthrax
12:20 pm
from dougway proving ground in utah rather than the dead anthrax they were supposed to get shipped. look the defense department says official three is no threat to public health because all of this was under so-called controlled circumstances. but they will also tell you they simply not sure what they're dealing with. they think 12 states and three countries, the numbers are going grow. they have to test everything because they don't know what the problem is. they don't know how this happened. and they have not to be clear, been very forthcoming with public information. the work force, the military here at the pentagon. the civilian work force, the news media that work in this building. nobody has yet been informed formally that the shipment that came to the pentagon is one of the shipment being investigated. brooke? >> barbara starr on it for us. thank you. >> sure. more breaking news here. amid this explosive corruption scandal, fifa president sepp blatter resigning as head of the world's most popular sport. this comes just days after the
12:21 pm
chief of world soccer's governing body was narrowly re-elected to his position for the fifthd time. cnn has -- fifth time. cnn has learned that blatter isn't under investigation but officials say the corruption scandal is continuing. people under investigation for wire fraud, conspiracy. we'll bring in sports attorney brian sokolow. as you hear about this pertaining to the chief of all of soccer around the world -- there's been talk of scandal for years. to hear he is all of a sudden stepping down, surprise? >> it is a surprise. he could have stepped down before he got re-elected but he didn't. something must have happened between the time -- >> over the course of the weekend? >> over the course of the weekend. could be that prosecutors in the u.s. or switzerland came to him and said we have more damaging information that implicates you directly. he may have learned that. it may have been sponsors that lined up and said "sepp, it's
12:22 pm
time for you to go. we don't want our brands to be tarnished with by association with what seems to be a criminal corrupt enterprise. you need to leave before our brands get hurt." something must have happened. it's a drastic step for him to resign at this point. >> again, no charges. obviously that could change depending on what they find right? >> that's right. it's still probably somewhat early in the investigation. the prosecutors have underway here in the united states. certainly in switzerland. they could learn more information. and one thing you often see is in a situation like this prosecutors will demand a resignation of an official like this as part of some type of plea bargain or part of the investigation. we don't know if there have been those discussions that have been going on that may have led to that in this case. there's a lot more to come. a lot more information we're going to learn. >> can you help underscore how historic or significant this is? we're talking about the world's most popular sport to an american viewing audience. how big of a deal? >> it's an incredibly big deal.
12:23 pm
he's been in power for 320-plus years -- for 20-plus years. he said "i'm the one to lead fifa through this and institute reforms." for him to turn around and resign maybe it's like richard nixon resigning at the height of the watergate scandal because he realized he had no other way out of it. it is absolutely huge. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. next here as a nuclear deal with iran hangs in the balance, the united states report indicates the country's nuclear schoolpile has been growing -- stockpile has been growing. we have jim sciutto joining me with reporting coming up. also caitlyn jenner also breaking all kinds of records especially on twitter. she now has more than two million followers a day after her big announcement. so will she really become this face of this trans movement? we'll discuss.

12:28 pm
the world is closely watching the final push for an agreement between iran and the world leaders over its nuclear program. we are now down to a month for the deadline for the deal. a report out of the nuclear inspectors shows the stockpile has grown. it's gotten bigger while negotiators were at the table and not by little. our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto what's happening here? >> reporter: i've spoken to a chief negotiator part of the iran deal. he thatsays this is temporary, a technical issue. by the end of the month, the deadline for a full permanent agreement, it will be back to the agreed. level. the thing is just for a amount
12:29 pm
of explanation, they enrich the uranium, and by the agreement convert it to a less threatening form uranium oxide. they're in the process of doing that. when they complete doing it it will be back to the same level as when they started the agreement. now the interesting thing here is the state department backs that up. the state department spokesperson marie harf senior adviser to secretary of state john kerry, saying that's part of the deal. by the end of the month, it will be back where it's meant to be, and their levels are allowed to fluctuate within a range over time. but it does show you that there is some room within the parameters of the agreement to enrich a bit more. this is one of the questions that makes some of the opponents of the deal uncomfortable. >> which is why we wanted to ask but it for that perspective. so as we were looking at the calendar, as the deadline is at the end of this month, in addition to the nuclear negotiations there has to be a play. the americans being held or missing in iran. >> no question. i was in this hearing this
12:30 pm
morning. you had -- there were three americans currently being held in american prisons. there's another who's been missing for eight years now robert levenson, who you'll remember was a cia contractor there, fbi contractor. but you had their family members testifying on the hill today. you're seeing a picture there was a woman his husband in prison for religion he was proselytizing for religion in iran. his brother a "washington post" reporter imprisoned on what the u.s. sees as manufactured charges of spying. and then amir hecmate, former marine american, a dual national. he's been held in iranian prison for more than three years now. what the families are saying -- i'll tell you, you could sense their frustration. first of all there's sadness to be separated from their loved one. the frustration with the u.s. government. they said in frank terms at the hearing, how could we be negotiating with iran in such friendly environment over this -- these iran talks and not the nuclear program and not be
12:31 pm
bringing the fate of these americans as a direct issue. you heard this from lawmakers, as well. you had eliot engel, congressman from new york, saying it's infuriating, in his words. he went on to say iran is spitting in our face during these negotiations to not talk about these american held there. strong feelings expressed this morning. i met with families for months now. they're running out of patience and want to see change. particularly if there's agreement. they want their relatives freed. >> you can understand it. you can understand it. >> absolutely. >> jim sciutto thank you very much for speaking with them and with us. thank you. >> reporter: thank you. even with a broken leg and being hours away from surgery, that did not stop u.s. secretary of state john kerry from being part of a world meeting today on the fight against isis. this morning he called in to the meeting in paris where 24 countries met to discuss the way forward. they vowed to stay united in the
12:32 pm
fight. but the fact remain, isis continues to make gains. as you knowings they took over recently the city of ramadi. what should the u.s. plan be moving forward? wolf blitzer is exploring that a new "situation room" special report tonight. you, wolf blitzer, talked to some of the best the brightest. you know military and strategic minds for this special. what do they say the u.s. must do here? >> you know, we brought together some of the top retired generals admirals former u.s. ambassador to iraq ambassador kalil zad, cia officer. we brought together several of the top minds got them in our situation room and around our table. to try to discuss not necessarily how we got to where we are right now but where to go from here. how to stop isis, what does the united states need to do, and we had a really serious, important discussion. i think our viewers will emerge from this one-hour special later tonight, a little smarter on what's going on. let me play a little clip.
12:33 pm
an excerpt of what some top military strategist had to say. starting with you general clark the president of the united states calls you into his situation room and says, "general clack, what's the most important thing the cuts do now to defeat isis?" you say -- >> get the sunni tribes fighting. >> ramp up support so they have the ability to fight. >> what does that mean ramp up support? >> i not the forward air controllers, more precise, effective air strikes. >>ard miller? >> the most important thing is to get to the leadership in baghdad and tell them to get off their tails. make a difference in anbar. >> initially keep isis where it is in some form of containment. long term you have to do everything this -- these gentlemen have said. >> we have not done diplomat diplomatically the things we need to do to get the iraqi government supporting their people. all of their people. >> it's interesting because if you speak to the retired officers -- and they're very
12:34 pm
impressive. general wesley clark general carter hamm admiral william physical lon, major general james "spider" marks, lieutenant general, ambassador kalil zad, phil mudd they all had important insight into what's going on right now. i learned something. i think our viewers will, as well. >> thank you very much. we'll watch. wolf's special reported "isis: what should the u.s. do now," tonight at 9:00 eastern here on cnn. thank you, sir. next, caitlyn jenner, former formerly bruce jenner revealed her new image of all places, "vanity fair." what's next? how will this moment serve to be an inspiration for others? does it matter that she's a celebrity?
12:35 pm
12:36 pm
12:37 pm
12:38 pm
12:39 pm
now that caitlyn jenner is, in her own words, free many are asking can her change benefit the transgender movement? her stunning "vanity fair" cover exposed the world her courage and bravery. a lot of her supporters hope the transition sparks a larger conversation about the transgender community in general. actress laverne cox who stars on netflix' "orange is the new black" wrote on her blog "most trans folks don't have the privileges caitlyn and i now have. it is those trans folks, we must continue to lift up." joining me, iliza beyer, executive director of the network that works on lgbt issues in our schools.
12:40 pm
celebrated the 25th anniversary last night. congratulations. also with me clubrity publicist howard ragman who supported chaz bono during his transition. welcome to you. howard, let me begin with your p.r. hat on, with the "vanity fair" cover the annie liebovitz photo spread, the post-diane sawyer pre-reality tv series moment, what is -- what is the strategy here and what are potential obstacles? >> i think the strategy is a very smart one. caitlyn did first the interview as bruce with diane. at the end, wisely bruce said, i'm not going to let you see me reveal myself or present myself as a female yet. i'm not going to tell you my name. now we know why he wouldn't do that. he had -- he had "vanity fair" feed ed teed up to do the cover.
12:41 pm
someone said something interesting -- she's so overexposed. i said there's only been two interviews. the exposure has to do, frankly, with social media and the pure level of interest around this. >> i'm mindful of the fact that she is such a celebrity. eliza, my question to you working with trans youth, how the story has resonated with them. and also how they can relate or not given clearly the resources to then look like this. >> absolutely. i mean howard does -- works on the coming out process, i think about what happens after this. what does this mean for young people around the country. you know trans youth are among the most vulnerable of our young people. and to have this kind of example, to have both laverne cox and caitlyn jenner in the limelight is just unbelievably powerful. it's also a moment of caution, though. >> why? >> think about how much this is in the news. people everywhere are talking
12:42 pm
about it and as an advocate and mom myself think about all the young people listening now, to hear what adults have to say about this story. it's a moment we need to really think about what we're expressing as each adult out there sort of works through their own stuff about this. let's have inmind mind who's listening and the young people who need to know this is an interesting moment for our culture. one where someone important has stepped into the limelights. >> what would be howard and especially as i mentioned you helped chaz transition. what are -- i don't know take me behind t skeenshe scenes what that was like. what are some of the choices that caitlyn jenner obviously has had to make not just from a publicity standpoint but, you know a personal -- all these personal choices? >> what you need to understand is most people when they transition do it discreetly. they might tell family
12:43 pm
co-workers. but chaz and caitlyn didn't have that luxury. once you realize that's taken away from you and you have to do a t publicly you have to say what's most authentic for me. how can i tell my story the best to help the most people. and i know i know that caitlyn wants to help other people. and laverne was absolutely right. we have to use this as a teachable moment, to be able to talk about this. that's something both chaz and caitlyn share in common. they understood they could tell their story, but their story was going resonate with so many others and be so important that they could have this discussion in society. and hopefully we're using it to lifts up everyone in the transgender community because -- as everyone acknowledges, people like chaz people like caitlyn, people like laverne have certain luxuries the rest of the world doesn't have. >> uh-huh. and i think also it's an education for a lot of people, right? i mean eliza, even in "vanity
12:44 pm
fair" piece the interview and all this amazing access was saying, listen i slipped up and called her, dude pronoun issues. then-bruce no-caitlyn referred to herself as a he. so i mean, if they're making mistakes i think we're all allowed a little leeway. how -- what's the right way of talking about this? >> the right way of talking about this is with respect for what caitlyn has done, what laverne has done. and to really be thoughtful about everyone make mistakes but if you come to the conversation not assuming anything and asking and thinking about this deeply and not stooping to either fear mongering or allowing any personal conflict you have to sort of slip out in hurtful ways i think it's an important moment to be thinking about this. we have to remember that so many young people in our schools, particularly those who are coming out as transgender -- >> who you work with -- >> every day. and our research has shown that
12:45 pm
these are young people who face the highest rates of physical violence in our schools. and who experience the deepest despair when they are living with that disparity between who they know they are and how people are responding to them. those young people really need to know that everyone in america is learning about this facet of our great community. that there are members of this community everywhere not all of them as fortunate, but that they are our friends neighbors, our children our teachers, our -- our parents, and that they're all loved and respected. >> howard, final thought before we go. this is a wonderful moment that we have for society. as eliza can tell you, some people know very early and deal with it at an early time in their lives. chaz dealt with it at 40. caitlyn dealing with it at 65. it's -- it's happening, and we need to talk about it.
12:46 pm
and understand that sexuality, gender identity these are much more complicated issues than we ever wished to acknowledge in the past. and we have to -- as eliza said allow people the respect and to tell their own stories. >> thanks to the two of you for jumping on cnn and being part of the national dialogue. i appreciate you both very much. eliza, howard, thank you. >> thank you. >> thanks. coming up next the senate just voted on critical amendments regarding the nsa's collection of phone data. plus dash cam video moments before a pastor was shot and killed in oklahoma. the exchange between the troopers here and this pastor and his brother. we got the new tempur-flex and it's got the spring and bounce of a traditional mattress. you sink into it but you can still move around. now that i have a tempur-flex, i can finally get a good night's sleep. (vo) change your sleep. change your life. change to tempur-pedic.

this showdown over domestic surveillance program. talk me through what's just happened. >> what has just happened is the white house and their unlikely allies in the house republican leadership just got a big victory on the floor of the senate. and the reason is because majority leader mitch mcconnell's push to amend the dragnet programs those were defeated. there were three votes. they were all defeated. what that means -- forgive me i'm watching the senate floor because mitch mcconnell is speaking right now. it certainly may be a concession of defeat. what this means is that in just a short order, a few minutes, the senate will take a final vote on what the house passed. and that again is reforms to the patriot act, reforms that would

change those programs that have to do with surveillance that we've been talking about for a cup of weeks now. and once the senate passes that it will go right to the white house and the president will sign it. what that means is that these programs which have gone dark since monday because the program expired on june 1st they will eventually get back up and running. >> so as i know you're trying to multitask and listen to the senate majority leader here bottom line when will this all hopefully be wrapped up? >> well the vote is likely to happen to start relatively shortly. and you know brooke, what we're going to be looking for after all of the drama and controversies -- just to take a step back all started and it was all delayed thanks to the very very long speech and fill la buster of the senate majority

house republicans and the white house joined together, which we almost never see, saying please don't change this that prevailed at the end of the day. that's why you're going to likely see the drama come to an end at some point today with this going to the white house. >> thank you. and as we go to brak i just wanted to take a moment and revisit an incredibly tragic story, the devastating earthquake in nepal and the six marines who were killed in the crash. the family of one of those men finally got to chance to say good-bye. a motorcade of fire trucks and police cars escorting the herselfhearse from his hometown to saint paul nb nebraska. let's just watch. >> it's a hard thing to accept. everybody is doing the best they can to deal with this.
