AC360 Video: 'First tweeter' describes being shaken by US airstrikes against ISIS in Syria

Well before the first media accounts of the attack on the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, Abdulkader Hariri, a Twitter user in the town, tweeted this:

"Breaking: Huge explosions shook the city in what might be the beginning of US airstrikes on ISIS HQs in Raqqa.”

Anderson Cooper speaks to Hariri about the Tweet that’s believed to be the first report on the airstrikes carried out against ISIS by the United States. After years of civil war, Hariri told Anderson how he knew these airstrikes did not come from the Assad regime.

Homeland Secy. tells CNN's Wolf Blitzer the recent security risks at the White House are, " a series of troubling events"

Washington (CNN) - The militant group ISIS represents a "very significant potential threat to homeland security," and officials have a "good sense" of the individuals from the United States who are trying to travel to Syria and fight with the terrorist group, the secretary of Homeland Security said Monday on CNN.

"They are a dangerous organization that has acquired territory in Iraq and Syria from which they could launch attacks, train, command and control," Jeh Johnson said on "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

Visit http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/22/politics/dhs-secretary-isis/index.html for the full story.

Blitzer also asked Secy. Johnson about the recent security risks at the White House.  Blitzer questioned, "How could this happen, Mr. Secretary?" Johnson replied,"Well, that's what I’d like to know.  Director Pearson of the Secret Service has ordered, a security review which she will submit to me.  The Secret Service is part of the Department of Homeland Security.  I look forward to the findings and recommendations.  I'm going to wait till the facts are in before I draw any conclusions.  This is clearly, however, a series of troubling events." A full transcript of the program will be posted on http://archives.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/sitroom.html.

Tony Blair on ISIS, Obama, & Russia

Today on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair talks exclusively to Candy Crowley about British involvement in the fight against ISIS, and what the latest videos tell us about the militant group’s intentions.

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Blair on the strategy to combat ISIS: "It's now very obvious – from Syria, from Libya, from everything that's happening in the world – that this problem isn't going away, and I think you'll find that the policy undergoes a process of evolution, where people realize in different situations you're having different strategies, and there may be situations in which we are prepared to use combat force"

Blair on fighting ISIS with troops on the ground: “You certainly need to fight groups like ISIS on the ground.  It is possible that those people who are there locally and who have the most immediate interest in fighting ISIS can carry on the ground offensive against them. But, look, the - this - this will evolve over time, I'm sure.  And I'm sure that the leadership, both in the U.S. and elsewhere, will make sure that whatever is necessary to defeat ISIS is done.”

Bill Clinton on Fareed Zakaria GPS

CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA GPS features an interview with Bill Clinton. As former U.S. President Bill Clinton prepares for the 2014 annual meetings of the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City, Fareed Zakaria spoke with him about the recent plans announced by President Barack Obama on the U.S. contributions to the Ebola outbreak in Africa, and what he feels the U.S. should do about the terrorist group ISIS.

TEXT EXCERPT

Clinton on Syria: ​“I supported two years ago the proposal that Hillary and Secretary Panetta and then CIA director, General Petraeus, made to give more robust armed support to the Syrians. But I well understood why the president was reluctant to do it because, as you see in Libya, there’s still lots of militia groups there who like America.”

​Clinton on the fight against ISIS in Iraq: "the Iraqi government is now more inclusive than it has been since the fall of Saddam Hussein. And that seems to be awakening, if you will, the willingness of the Sunni tribal leaders to participate in fighting. We know the Kurds and the Peshmerga are willing to fight. If we can help them and support them, I think the larger fight against ISIS can continue as it should – as a local struggle for the freedom and liberty of the people"

Clinton on Russian expansion into Ukraine: "President Yeltsin, in return for Ukraine getting rid of all of its nuclear weapons and sending them to Russia, signed an agreement with me and the then president of Ukraine saying that Russia would always respect Ukraine's territorial integrity. President Putin said it was an agreement, not a treaty, therefore I'm not bound by it. I just think it's a bum rap that expanding NATO caused all this. You know, that - you made me invade Georgia and you made me invade Ukraine because they were the only two countries on my border that weren't part of NATO? I mean come on, it just - it's not a credible thing."
