7:05 am
chef hhr. >> said something to him, this isn't the hhr, you're not the guy, are you? he kind of said no. >> reporter: mark dunton and two of his friends say they may have been dalton's last uber customers on saturday night. >> crazy to think somebody gone out and done these horrible things and come in with a straight fis like he is face and looking like he did nothing at all. >> reporter: this couple wish to remain anonymous. >> i half-heartedly joked at him you? he said, no. i said are you sure? and he said, no, i'm just really tired. >> he had a weapon in the car with. >> reporter: in a statement on sunday, uber officials said they are heartbroken and reached out to police to help with the investigation. >> really good person. >> reporter: mia is a classmate of tyler smith, the high school senior died alongside his father at the car dealership.

7:07 am
where candidates are rushing to pick up support before tomorrow's gop caucuses. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, history appears to be on donald trump's side in this race, because in recent years, no republican candidate has won both the new hampshire primary and the south carolina primary, and then gone on to lose the nomination. >> i love to win. don't we love to win? love it. >> reporter: in georgia on sunday, trump sounded carried away by his big win in neighboring south carolina hours earlier. >> i tell you what, we are just going one after another. are we going to win georgia? yes. >> reporter: even a temporary blackout was not enough to dim his enthusiasm. >> don't turn the lights on! plus, we save on electricity, right? >> reporter: having raised questions about ted cruz's right to run for president, trump turned a similar argument against marco rubio sharing a
7:08 am
florida's eligibility. though, trump said he wasn't sure one way or another the other. >> i haven't looked at it. somebody said he is not and i retweeted it. 14 million people between facebook and twitter and instagram. >> reporter: rubio said the move was typical trump. >> he says something edgy and outrageous and media flocks and covers that and no one else can get any coverage on that. >> reporter: second place finish in south carolina, rubio argued more than one way to look at trump's win. >> of the people left in this race no one can unite this party faster than i can. >> reporter: with the republican field shrinking, he seeses an advantage. cruz a close third on saturday, saw his own advantage. >> we are seeing people come together behind our campaign because we are the only campaign that has beaten donald trump and that can beat donald trump.
7:09 am
crowds turned out for marco rubio's three events on sunday and for viewers with a sharp eye, yes, that is donnie e wallberg who showed up in nevada to endorse the florida senator even though wahlberg acknowledged he has never voted for a republican presidential candidate in his life. >> dean, we are big fans of him. thank you, dean. south carolina is the next test in the democratic campaign. hillary clinton hopes to follow-up on saturday's victory in nevada. she beat bernie sanders by sixille, south carolina, where sanders campaigned yesterday after >> reporter: good morning. that nevada victory was a huge relief for the clinton camp and preserved her front-runner status and they have no time to dwell on it because 13 contests
7:10 am
here in south carolina. shrugging off his nevada loss, sanders told a crowd of thousands in greenville, he's on a roll. >> if you look at national polls and you want to a candidate who is going to defeat donald trump, you're looking at that candidate! >> reporter: tell that to clinton, who blitzed the vegas strip the last 48 hours to beat back a late sanders' surge. >> some may have doubted us but we never doubted each other! >> reporter: older voters, women and african-americans, were all key to clinton's victory. while younger voters, once again, were heavily for sanders. in a new memo, the clinton camp is disputing entrance polls that showed sanders won the latino vote by eight points. it is not possible that clinton lost the latino vote, the campaign writes, citing her
7:11 am
latino clark county, home of las vegas. as the caucus we attended caesar's pals lass, the women voters were overwhelming clinton. >> amazing [ inaudible ]. >> reporter: the fight goes on! >> reporter: it's not academic. both candidates are trying to prove they have an appeal for minority votes. >> our support in the latino community has gone up and i upport in the african-american community going up as well. >> reporter: sanders is winning the money raise according to january fund-raising totals. he outraised clinton last month by nearly 7 million and outspent her as well which could explain fund-raising. >> thanks. "face the nation" moderator and cbs news political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie.
7:12 am
people say, marco rubio and others say donald trump is only getting one-third of the republican vote. a as well, other people suggest if anybody on the republican side wins new hampshire and south carolina, they are almost unstoppable. how do you bring those two ideas together? >> well, we are going to find out now. the field has will lowed and this is what the anti-trump forces have been hopefully, waiting for. one person that can represent the mainstream republican vote going up against donald trump. but the challenge then, and that person, marco rubio, says, is him, john kasich disputes that, but rubio is going to have to take the case to trump. what we saw in south carolina is what we see with every trump victory is that the new things that he can survive, just quickly what he survived in south carolina, being booed at two debates and taking on george w. bush and getting in a fight with the pope and he survived
7:13 am
so he looks in pretty good shape right now. >> let's look forward to march 1st, super tuesday. who is best positioned to do well in those states, huge delegate load there. >> well, donald trump is best positioned. he has got the momentum of these wins. he is doing well in those states. obviously, ted cruz has an advantage in texas. he also -- cruz also has advantage in those southern states that are on super tuesday. but the problem for ted cruz is look at south carolina that was a state with 75 roughly percent of the evangelical voters and a lot of conservative voters and he couldn't beat trump there, after having been in sustained combat with him a month he couldn't beat him back. that suggests it's hard for him to do that on super tuesday. >> who benefits the most from jeb bush's departure from the race? it was an emotional time for him on saturday night. i'm wondering if you heard anything about that? >> both rubio and kasich said they have talked to people who donated to just about bush and have gotten some support.
7:14 am
benefiting more. it's not so much the voters that will come to those two candidates, but it's the money and so, right now, it looks like marco rubio may be grabbing some of that more than john kasich. >> it continues. john dickerson, thank you so much. the supreme court returns to work this morning for the first time since the death of justice antonin scalia. thousands of mourners gathered in washington saturday for his funeral. scalia's son paul led mass at the nation's largest roman catholic church. jan crawford is at the supreme court where the remaining justices will hear oral arguments today in two cases. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i mean, today really starts an uncertain chapter for supreme court. none of these eight justices have ever served on the supreme court without justice scalia. but when they take their seats on the bench this morning, scalia's will be empty the next 30 days and it's going to be covered in a black memorial cloth. now, today's cases are run-of-the-mill. one is a criminal case and one
7:15 am
it is hard to imagine an oral argument without justice scalia there. he was such a dominate presence and without scalia, remember, this court is now divided 4-4 along ideological lines. many of the controversial cases will probably end up in a tie and that means the lower court decision will stand, unless the supreme court decides to reset them for argument next term. >> jan, what are your sources telling you about where we are in terms of picking a successor for scalia? >> reporter: well, the president has already started reviewing files on possible nominees but the republicans are saying that, you know, they are not going to confirm anyone that he sends up to the senate with the court in the balance, they don't want him to turn it to the left. the stakes could not be any higher. >> jan, thank you so much. the fbi director is making a very personal and passionate plea in the standoff with apple over the san bernardino gunman's iphone. james comey writes we simply

the fronts of all the buildings have been blown clean off and the people who lived in those apartments, the shopkeepers who had their businesses on the ground floor, they're all dead. isis was never going to be party to any kieshd of cease fire, but this proofs their commitments to total war. however, the other players in this war, this conflict do say they're ready for some kind of a truce. president assad said he was ready for it over the weekend and the opposition says they're going to try too, but the devil as always is in the details. when would it start, who would participate, who would monitor it? in northern syria, the syrian army backed by russian planes are conducting a conducting a huge attack and at the moment they're winning. that may the reason they're asked behind the scenes to drag its heels in any kind of truce. however, in the next couple of

8:16 am
an achievement that stumped college professors. in fairfax, virginia, chip reid is adding up the success. >> reporter: when i walked into this classroom this morning, i thought i was walking into a language class, because that is greek to me. but you're about to meet a couple of high school students who know all of that and exactly what it means and a lot more. landon may seem like an ordinary 15-year-old. in many ways, he is. but he also knows what it's like, at least in math, to achieve perfection. the more than 300,000 students around the world who took the advanced placement calculus test last year he is one of only 12 who achieved a perfect score and most of the test takers were juniors and seniors. he was a 14-year-old sophomore. what does it feel like to have been perfect on this test? >> honestly, it's a little overwhelming. it's lots of interviews like
8:17 am
the president? >> that was pretty cool. >> reporter: pretty cool? that is an understatement, >> yeah. >> reporter: his perfect score placed him in the top.004%. that means 1 in what? >> 25,000? >> reporter: i got 2,500. >> that would be -- it's .004%. >> oh, very good! he beat me at math. beating a tv news reporter at math is no big deal but landon's parents say perfection is a big deal for him. mom and dad, were you surprised he got a perfect score? >> i was surprised. >> reporter: not because you don't think highly of him? >> no, no. >> reporter: you thought else make a silly mistake? >> i did. that is just natural. >> reporter: even college professors who write the exams make mistakes.
8:18 am
this and it's remarkable when a high school student who doesn't have a college degree let alone a h. ph.d. in this subject area does not miss a point. >> reporter: landon credits his calculus teacher ann watkins. >> reporter: can calculus be intuitive? >> absolutely. >> reporter: you come to calculus to push the limits? >> absolutely. one of my t-shirts say calculus students know their limits. >> reporter: that is something cedric understands as well, a 17-year-old senior in lincoln high school in los angeles, he, too, is one of the 12 students with a perfect score on the calculus exam. >> i like to absolutely -- math there is always an answer. but i know that there is not always an answer in upper level math. sometimes there are unsolved problems and just the unknown out there that makes me want to, you know, solve it. >> reporter: cedric's record
8:19 am
and he has a near obsession with avoiding careless errors in math. >> i don't like make is mistakes, i don't. >> reporter: cedric's mother is a nurse foreign in the philippines and his mother is a maintenance worker originally from el salvador. >> this country offers a lot of good things to the immigrants, like us. so i'm just thankful. >> i didn't have the opportunity whatever he wants. >> reporter: aside from the perfect score, that is another big thing cedric and landon have in common -- parents who their best. >> the problem with somebody like landon, his best just keeps getting better, so it's hard to know when he has done his best. >> reporter: as you can see, i've been using the time
8:20 am
skills and not sure about the last one. the number of today is 12. the number who had a perfect score on this exam. by the way, both landon and cedric want to be engineers. landon wants to possibly send a rocket to mars and cedric wants to design something that is so cool that his name will be known around the world. >> believe! i believe that is going to happen! >> i believe. >> that's right. >> i love both parents, too. the pride that both parents felt about their sons. >> yeah. >> really good to see. >> that is the american story. >> that's right. >> immigrants come here and their kids take a real place. >> succeed. don't we line it? the best just keep getting better. there is a high altitude trapeze act you won't see at the circus. the routine two miles above the record. you're watching "cbs this morning." . this morning" sponsored by

tension is on display in the fbi's standoff with apple over the san bernardino terrorist iphone. a powerful intelligence insider is weighing in. retired general major michael hayden says apple is right in principle, but the government has a point. hayden created and oversaw programs designed to keep americans safe. he is director of the national security agency and director of the cia in the past and he is now telling his side of the story in a new book called "playing to the edge american intelligence in the age of terror." general hayden, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's look at the fbi story and make sure we understand exactly what you think. you have on the one hand, the fbi says we ought to be able to look at this. we need you to help us do it and time. >> ian >> apple says no such thing as one time. it means we are opening up privacy and violating the
8:34 am
what do you say. >> this is a morality play for the theme of the book which i describe is tough choices and not about the forces of light and the force of darkness. this is about balancing two virt things we want, liberty and particular sphere. i think apple is right in terms of opposing universal back doors to make it easier for any communications. >> but is that what the government is asking them? >> no. but i am not convinced that what the fbi is asking apple to do in san bernardino is that. and i think the burden of proof is on apple to show that there is an inevitable slippery slope from this very targeted focused request from the bureau, a slippery slope from that to this thing over here. charlie, look. as you said, i ran nsa. back doors are back doors. if they are in there, good security services around the
8:35 am
advantage of that. >> government too? >> the government actually wish us no good. >> you also say in the book when it comes to national security and protecting our privacy and our lives, sometimes you have to go right to the edge and do whatever it takes. >> that's right. >> is it a bit of a contradiction to say, well, i don't totally oppose i agree with a back door? do you know what i'm saying? >> gayle, i get it and this is a perpetual gray area and never easy choices but there are lines. i say playing to the edge and certain point. in my judgment, in this particular case is that universal back doors, although it may facilitate american law enforcement for very good purposes, on balance, on balance, actually are an overall negative for american security, not just american privacy. >> why would law enforcement or intelligence agencies need the iphone exactly? in other words, you can go
8:36 am
they have already checked his phone records, know who he has spoken with and pretty much cleaned a lot of material doing all of that. >> they have. and that is one of the arguments folks like me use for no universal back doors. there are other tools available. but, norah, in this particular case, it wasn't backed up to the cloud. and -- >> for the past 44 days before the attack? >> right. and you can't get it to talk to the cloud without getting into it and changing its cloud code. and so you're back to apple needs to suppress the current ios which will destroy the data if you have unsuccessful attempt to open it. >> can you clear something up for me? it's interesting to me to watch on saturday the fbi put out a blog case and this morning, tim cook e-mailing. a public relations war going on between the two of them.
8:37 am
has been cooperative and worked with the cia in the past? >> i won't get into operational details and apple has made it quite public they have been cooperative with american law enforcement with cases like this one but now apple is drawing this line. >> ios 7 or ios 8? >> i wouldn't get into the specifics. that is one of the detailed arguments that tilts this one way or the other. >> interesting thing is district attorney of new york has said he has got about 170 cases in which he can't gain access to an iphone and he needs that criminals. >> no. frankly, charlie, i think the u.s. attorney here making that case undercuts jim comey's argument that i got one off that i need your help. >> can we talk about your book for a second? >> please! >> here you are, the master secret keeper. for years you keep all of the secrets and now you're writing a book about the secrets.
8:38 am
you and was it difficult for you to do? did you struggle with it? >> first of all, i've been doing this for a while. >> yes. >> i kind of know my own limits. >> got it. >> so i write to what i think the edge is in terms of classification. but everything then has to be cleared and, in this case, by cia, and nsa and the director of national intelligence. and, frankly, gayle, in the conversations, i pretty much got to say everything i wanted to say, even if not in all cases i to say it. >> what was your process? >> i picked a topic. let's take the syrian nuclear reactor. >> let's take that. >> long airplane rides with my ipad and kind of put out about 2,500, 3,000 words stream of consciousness and realized a lot of i don't remember. go to the agency, ask to see documents. ask to talk to people. meet with them. enrich the basic outline that i have. now i'm about 80%, 85% of the
8:39 am
>> can i ask you about the current presidential debate? i know you know bob gates well, the former secretary of defense. he has essentially said it would be -- it's embarrassing the on. when a candidate says they want to carpet bomb isis into possible? >> no and it would be unmoral and unworthy of a republic like ourselves. right. remember, i began by saying these are hard issues and an infin in gray. >> donald trump said he would waterboard. >> he said he would waterboard and a lot worse because they deserved it. this was never looking backward. this was trying to keep americans safe looking forward. people can argue what we did but punishment.
8:40 am
question for you? >> obviously, i was intimately involved in targeted killings and in detail in the book and always raises moral questions. when the phone would ring in the middle of the night, charlie, i mean this, before i would pick it up, i said to myself, hayden, listen up. whatever you are going to decide on this call, you're going to live with the rest of your lirve. >> i've been told by cia directors there have been moments they identify where they would get by a drone a leading terrorist and they have decided not to because they knew the family was too close. >> well, you make these value judgments all the time. the laws of war, necessity proportionality and distinction and it goes through your mind. i tell a story in the book with the united states, where they took a shot at a wmd exert for be al qaeda even though his grandson was nearby. we contributed to the intelligence to that shot. >> you had to make the decision. >> the united states had to make
8:41 am
we tried to avoid the civilian loss of life. >> but the grandson was killed in that scenario? . you had you can live with that? >> i can but without cavalier, i have grandchildren. when you're director of these kinds of agencies, you still have your personal moral self but you're acting on behalf of the nation and you have to realize it's a failure to make a tough decision. the failure to take that kind of shot could actually lead to something catastrophic. >> general hayden, thank you. the book is called "playing to the edge" and goes on sale tomorrow. only on "cbs this morning," inside the designed studios at
