7:01 am
also this morning, raging inferno. the whipping winds and blistering temperatures creating apocalyptic-like scenes in australia. the break firefighters are getting this morning. tom brady's future. what's next for the patriots legend after last night's crushing defeat. >> you know i love playing football. i love playing for this team. >> what he's saying about the loss overnight. harvey weinstein on the record. the disgraced movie mogul releasing his thoughts as his trial is about to get started. and close encounter. the driver who came face to face with this bison. good morning. let's get straight to our top story. as we come on the air they're marching in the streets in iran, angry mourners at a funeral procession for general qasem
7:02 am
soleimani, the powerful notorious military official taken out in that american drone strike. >> this, as president trump takes his saber-rattling to a new level. in a series of tweets warning iranians if they strike back, warning, we have targeted 52 iranians sites representing the 52 american hostages taken by iran many years ago. >> we have team coverage including the increased security precautions being taken here at home. also, george is standing by with analysis but we begin with abc's senior foreign correspondent ian pannell who's in the ground in northern iraq. good morning,'ian. >> reporter: good morning, eva. that's right, iraq is on edge today. perhaps we've seen the first signs of small scale retaliation overnight. but everyone here is expecting a decisive response with clear warnings from one of the pro-iranian militias. that attacks against americans will begin from this evening. this morning, thousands of mourners on the streets in iran.
7:03 am
symbolic caskets aloft. weeping and chanting, i am soleimani. three days of mourning declared after a u.s. drone strike at baghdad airport killed iran's top general and other major officials on thursday night. in a meeting today, members of the iranian parliament unanimously chanted "death to america" with raised fists as their late leader's body was returned to iran. and a red flag symbolic of a declaration of revenge or war. it was raised above a key iranian mosque on saturday, and overnight, perhaps the first signs of retaliation. rocket attacks on the green zone in baghdad that houses the u.s. embassy and near balad, a military base. no u.s. diplomats or troops were harmed. iran and its allies have sworn harsh revenge against the u.s.
7:04 am
the head of the revolutionary guard vowing to put an end to american presence in the region. secretary of state pompeo has been speaking with u.s. allies and others in the middle east, most recently israeli prime minister netanyahu, saying in a statement that he underscored the trump administration's resolve in protecting american interests, personnel, facilities and partners. the u.s. now sending reinforcements to the region, deploying around 3500 troops from the 82nd airborne division and sending additional equipment as nato suspends training of iraqi forces amid fears that soleimani's killing could trigger a firestorm in the middle east. one more thing to bring you up to speed on, the iraqi parliament has been in session and one of the items that some of the parties wanted to discuss was the possibility of expelling u.s. troops from the country. now, it doesn't look like that's going to go through but it does show you the strength of feeling right here in the region. eva. >> ian pannell for us this
7:05 am
morning in northern iraq. this morning, we may already be seeing signs of retaliation. abc's stephanie ramos is in times square where security is already tight. good morning, stephanie. >> reporter: good morning, eva. it definitely is. we see stepped up police patrols here in times square and the department of homeland security is now warning of an apparent hack of a federal website. the site displayed the image of president trump bleeding with the islamic revolutionary guard fist in his face. dhs tells abc news overnight, in a statement, we are aware the website of the federal deposit terror federal library program was defaced with pro-iranian, anti-u.s. messaging. at this time there is no confirmation that this was the action of iranian state sponsored actors. the website was taken offline. this comes after hours after the dhs issued a notice on saturday warning law enforcement agencies about possible retaliation from iran. a document that had been in the works since drone strike thursday that killed iran's top
7:06 am
military commander. local and federal officials have increased security in cities across the country. but eva, some measures may be noticeable and some may be not. >> stephanie, federal officials are also warning americans to be alert when they're out in public. >> exactly. dhs recommends that americans stay informed while you're out at public events, especially if you're traveling. they want you to go about your life but they also want you to stay vigilant. be aware and know where those emergency exits are. officials also say we could see more cyber disruptions as well, and watch out for suspicious e-mails and network delays. dhs suggests you back up your data and implement multi-factor authentication on your devices. again, authorities don't know exactly what's to come but they say the threat is real. eva. >> all right, stephanie ramos for us, thank you. whit? president trump giving a bold warning to iran saying if the nation retaliates, the u.s.
7:07 am
is ready to strike iranian targets fast and hard. david wright is in west palm beach where the president made that decision to launch that air strike killing soleimani. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, whit. you know, the rest of the world may be calling for deescalation but president trump determines to go for deterrence even at the risk of inflaming things. he's been tweeting threats at iran, bragging about military hardware. he's saying if they hit, they will be hit harder than ever before. overnight, president trump ratcheted up the threats to iran warning them not to retaliate for the killing of qasem soleimani. let this serve as a warning, he tweeted, that if iran strikes any americans or american assets, we have targeted 52 iranian sites, some at a very high level and important to iran and the iranian culture.
7:08 am
he made it clear that number, 52, reflects the 52 americans held hostage in iran after the 1979 revolution. that bellicose rhetoric even as u.s. cities from coast to coast saw scattered protests this weekend. >> resist! >> reporter: people concerned na trump has brought us to the edge of another costly war. >> we've been there. we've done that. it didn't work. we've created terrorists. created isis. we need to stop. >> reporter: plans for this attack were reportedly in the works before new year's when president told reporters at mar-a-lago the new year would not bring war with iran. >> no, i want to have peace. i like peace. and iran should want peace more than anybody. >> reporter: the administration reportedly gave israel advanced warning but key european allies some of whom have troops in the region appear to have been caught by surprise. senator lindsey graham told fox news he was brought into the loop when he played a round of
7:09 am
golf with the president earlier new year's week. but the administration did not give democratic leaders any advanced warning. last night the administration finally did deliver the notification required under the 1973 war powers act but classified the document. house speaker nancy pelosi issued a statement, the highly unusual action to classify this document in its entirety compounds our many concerns and suggest that the congress and the american people are being left in the dark about our national security. democrats in congress are going to have a lot of questions for the administration. there are also questions about the legality of the strike under international law according to a french human rights expert who reviews extrajudicial killings for the united nations. in a series of tweets, she raised questions about the pentagon's rationale for this operation saying, it seems far more retaliatory for past acts than anticipatory of imminent self-defense.
7:10 am
dan? >> david wright from florida, thanks very much. let's bring in our chief anchor, george stephanopoulos who will be hosting "this week" later today. apparently, military officials went to the president presented him with a range of options, the taking out of soleimani being the most extreme. apparently they were really surprised when the president came back and said i will take that option. do you have a sense of what his game plan was? >> that's a very good question. i think we have to look at the facts and the past history of general soleimani. no question he has american blood on his hands. but both president george w. bush and president barack obama refused to target soleimani because they feared the risks outweighed the benefits. one reason why the pentagon officials were surprised that the president took that action. we know that there was an iranian attack on america
7:11 am
military base on december 27th. we know they had those protesters go into the american embassy. the president in the past had showed restraint and the reporting in "the new york times" is he feared that he looked weak so decided to take this measure. >> some say he was watching the coverage and didn't like the way he was playing. you're going to be talking to secretary of state pompeo. do you think there's any chance at diplomacy here for the two sides to sit down together? >> that's been the big question right now, this policy under president trump of moving away from the iran nuclear agreement of putting in new sanctions on iran, maximum pressure designed to get them to the negotiating table. it hasn't worked so far. it appears almost certain that iran is first going to have to retaliate before any kind of negotiations. that's what they're promising. they're refusing to negotiate right now. whether anything productive is happening behind the scenes we don't know for sure. the it doesn't appear so. >> but the danger of their retaliation, the calibration has to be quite precise. >> that's the big question, does either side actually want a
7:12 am
wider war? the united states doesn't. the president has been trying to stay out of the middle east. iran would have to fear it as well. the united states is a much more powerful military than iran. once you get into a situation like this where the risks of escalation are so high, this could happen by accident or miscalculation and that's what the real danger is. >> all you have to do is look at history, this is how wars start time and again. george, thank you very much. really appreciate it. i want to remind everyone, george has a big show this morning. he'll go one-on-one with the secretary of state mike pompeo as discussed. plus, senate minority chuck schumer speaks exclusively with george about the latest on impeachment. that's coming up on "this week" later this morning right here on abc. eva over to you. overnight, the extremist group al shabaab has taken credit for an attack at a kenyan military base used by u.s. forces. some u.s. aircraft and vehicles are said to be destroyed. no deaths have been reported. there doesn't appear to be any
7:13 am
connection between this attack and the tensions in the middle east. and we turn now to france where prosecutors say friday's deadly knife attack is now being treated as a terror-related incident. several people were stabbed in a parisian suburb by a 22-year-old man who investigators now say had been recently radicalized. one man has died. two women were injured. the suspect was shot and killed as he attempted to flee. now to those devastating australian wildfires some have called apocalyptic. abc's maggie rulli is there on the ground with the latest on the fire danger. maggie, good morning. >> reporter: the people who are here living through this destruction every day tell me they're exhausted, scared. they do not want the world to forget about them. this morning, new images of what could be the worst day of wildfires in australia's history. cars driving through highways engulfed in flames saturday in the desperate race to get out. fires erupting throughout the southeast. the sky glaring orange and thick with smoke. now, nearly 150 bushfires are
7:14 am
burning, almost 2,000 homes destroyed. so far at least 24 people have died. firefighters furiously battling flames, hoping today could be the turning point as the temperature drops and rainfall begins. steve price is a firefighter from idaho. he's one of dozens americans who volunteered to come fight these fires. he said they're bigger than anything he's seen before and australia needs our help. >> it's a pretty honorable mission we have right now and taking it really serious and trying to help them as much as we can. >> reporter: he's here for people like paula who stayed behind to protect her home. we went to check on her after saturday's blaze tore through her neighborhood. the road to her house was still burning. >> how are you doing? >> thank you. >> oh, my gosh, so good to see you. >> reporter: thankfully paula and her husband david were able to battle back the flames. >> it was all in there and down there. it jumped from the grass and it went all the way through. >> reporter: the fires burning
7:15 am
through about 15 million acres of land and threatening countless wildlife. animal planet's terri and robert irwin from australia zoo said it will be a long battle to bring them back. >> about half a billion animals whose lives have been lost. there's been so much destruction that we're going to need to really amp up our care for wildlife for years to come. >> reporter: we're getting better weather today. the temperature has dropped a full 30 degrees here. we even saw rain showers at one point. driving down the highway still fires on either side of the road at some point. and firefighters tell me they still have a long way to go. eza. >> maggie rulli for us. fans of tom brady may have seen him play his final game with the patriots. overnight, so much at stake in the game against the titans. trevor ault joins us. >> reporter: it was a great day for football yesterday. two games. the playoffs getting started. both games went down to the wire last night. this morning, the big talking point and the big question mark, what happens next to tom brady?
7:16 am
is he going to be back in a patriots uniform, or more broadly, is he going to be back at all? this morning, it's possible patriots legend tom brady has played his final game in a new england uniform. >> i love playing football. i love playing for this team. i love playing for this team for two decades and winning a lot of games. >> reporter: with the titans pulling off an upset saturday in foxborough, the 42-year-old brady now stepping into an uncertain future as an unrestricted free agent. his final pass intercepted and returned for a touchdown. >> touchdown by logan ryan, the former patriot! >> reporter: after the game, brady asked if he'll retire. >> i would say it's pretty unlikely but -- hopefully unlikely. >> reporter: in his 20 years in the league, his resume has been impeccable, leading the patriots to six super bowl wins. some even calling him the greatest to ever play the game. but this season, with many noting a distinct drop in the patriots' offensive talent, his numbers have fallen.
7:17 am
his 24 touchdowns this year, the fewest he's thrown in more than a decade. and even if he decides to keep playing next year without a contract, he'd need new england to agree to bring him back. >> there's nobody who has had a better career than me being with them. so i'm very blessed. i don't know what the future looks like. i'm not going to predict it. >> reporter: coach bill belichick notoriously tight lipped about the organization's plans. >> bill, do you anticipate the patriots are going to bring back tom brady? >> right now, we just finished the game. we're just focused on this game, okay? >> reporter: brady has said many times in the past he wants to play until he's 45. he's played his entire career with the patriots. it's kind of impossible to think about him finishing his career with another team but it's happened in the past. >> absolutely. >> it's an earthquake for that whole region. >> right. i was going to ask dan as the closest to retirement. >> boom. >> that's an age joke, i think. i can tell you growing up in boston that this is something that everybody's going to be talking about. no question about it.
7:18 am
thank you very much. >> apologize sincerely. >> totally kidding. we're going to switch gears and turn to the weather, possibly to blame for a chain-reaction crash in the turnpike in pennsylvania. we're hearing that multiple that there are multiple people who have been killed and injured. let's get over to rob. >> we've got two tractor-trailers and one tour bus involved in this. we have multiple fatalities and multiple injuries with this. it sounds awful along the pennsylvania turnpike near pittsburgh. you see there are multiple snow showers coming in. temperature slightly below freezing. that could lead to slick roadways. we had a slick runway, a taxiway in green bay airport yesterday. this delta flight slid off the taxiway as it was getting ready to take off. there were tornados, two of them in florida yesterday and you can see the damage here. we don't expect much in the way of severe thunderstorms today because the warmer air has been pushed out. we got a couple clippers moving
7:19 am
through. this one will come through tonight and tomorrow morning. maybe an inch or two near the great lakes. a slightly more substantial system coming into west virginia tuesday morning and then tuesday afternoon getting up through philadelphia, scranton, new york, pennsylvania into boston by wednesday morning. a quick thumping of snow, 2 to 8 inches depending on where you live. freezing temperatures will cause some slick roadways here as we go through tomorrow and tuesday. and really into wednesday morning, too. that's a check on what's happening nationally. time now for your local forecast.
7:20 am
some winter weather coming but another warmup coming for the east and santa ana winds blowing. we'll talk more about that in next half hour. coming up, janai, she has a wild encounter on the road. you're here with us. we need some happiness this morning. >> oh, good. i'm glad to be here. over the holidays we talked about traffic on the roadways. nothing quite like this. a nebraska woman was on a drive at a scenic overlook when this giant bison walked up to her vehicle and just started licking it. the cameras were rolling as she caught that very unusual -- i guess we can call it a car wash. the driver had to think fast before the animal got too close for comfort. >> he came up to my window actually, and i rolled it up quickly again and he ended up licking my window instead my face. >> certainly better the window, i think.
7:21 am
the bison wasn't roaming alone. she said there were about 20 in a nearby pasture. a dozen near her car. >> they were raising money for a local high school, i think. >> stop it. >> car wash. five bucks. >> that's a little salt on the windshield. >> and she got it for free. >> you have to draw the line at the face. back off, bison. all right, thank you, janai. other stories we're following this morning, the search is on for a 14-year-old boy missing for over two weeks. his mom making a desperate plea this morning. and harvey weinstein just hours away from the start of his trial. how both sides will be laying out their case. plus we're going to take you behind the scenes at the golden globes as the hollywood award season kicks off tonight. we'll be right back with more "gma."
