morning news and cbs this morning. from the broadcast center in new york city. peey: a russian warplane is shot down n ter it strays into turkey. >urkey, like every cocotry, has a right to defend its territory and its airspace. >> pelley: also tonight, a warning about a copycat terror attack in the u.s. > don't be afraid. be aware. >> pelley: a white chicago police officer is charged with murdering a black teenager. and the nation's highest civilian honors presented to a group of great americans from yogi berra-- >> it ain't overerill it's over. >> pelley: to james taylor. taylor.captioning sponsored by >> pelley: the incident has major implications for the war on isis and peace in europe. the head of nato is calling for
calm tonight after turkey shot downwn russian warplane kikiing at least one of two pilots. it is the first time the north atlantic alliance has downed a russian or soviet plane since the 1950s. russian presesent putin insists the plane was in syrian airspace, but the turks released this radar image, which they say shows the path of the plane, that dotted red line, as it briefly entered turkey. holly williams begins our coverage. >> reporter: turkey says the russian warplane strayed over a mile into ththairspace. after 10 warnings without a response, a turkish fighter jet shot it down. this video is thought to show its fiery descent, crashing down in northwest syria. turkey says this radar map shows where the aircraft briefly crossed over, but russia denies the plane ever left syrian
airspace, and the visibly angry russian president vladimir putin called turkey's actions a stab in the back, describing the turkish as terrorists' accomplices. turkey had already warned moscow about violating its airspace and says russian planes did so twice in october. a syrian rebel group posted this video, which seems to show the bloody body of one of the russian pilots. the fate of the other pilot is unknown. russia and turkey are on opposite sides of the syrian civil l r. turkey, like its ally the u.s., supports the syrian rebels. rebels, while russia backs the syrianegime and in septembmb began launching airstrikes. moscow claimed to be targeting isis, but the u.s. says it's also hit so-called moderate
rebels because russia's real goal i ito prop up syria's dictator, bashar al-assad. there were hopes that russia could be coaxed into cooperating with the u.s. and its allies in the fight against isis, bubu scott, after this incident, that now looks even more uncertain. >> pelley: holly williams reporting from istanbul tonight, holly, thanks. david martin reports the shootdown has the potential to draw nato allies into a conflict with russia. >> reporter: from the moment russian warplanes began operating out of that airbase in syria, it was an international incident waiting to happen. russian planes violated turkish airspace on at least two previous occasionsflew within 500 feet of american aircraft striking isis targets in syria, and bombed opposition groups supported by the u.s. and its allies. to avoid incidents, a hot line was set up beten the russian defense ministry and the u.s.-run commama center for
isis. but to no avail. after vladimir putin's angry reqction to the shootdown, the russian military said a cruiser armed wiwi surface-to-air missiles would be stationed off the syrian coast ready to shoot down any planes that threatened its aircraft. president obama urged both sides to remain calm and described the incidede as a consequence ofof russia's policy of flying airstrikes in support of the syrian regime of bashar al-assad. >> i do think that this pots to an ongoing problem with the russian operations in the sense that they are operating very close to a turkish border, and they are going after moderate opposition. >> reporter: turkey is a member of nato, which has spent the past year and a half scrambling troops.
to counter what is seen as increasingly aggressive russian behavior. the sudden appearance of russian warplanes in syria represented another threre to nato, this time on its southern flank, when the u.s. sent planes to turkey in an effort to increase the number of strikes against isis, it also sent air-to-air fighters to defend turkish airspace against russian warplanes. russia may be causing problems, but in this particular incident, scott, u.s. officials blame turkrk for over-reacting to a minor violation of its airspace. >> pelley: david martin at the pentagon tonight. thank you, david. as holly williams mentioned the u.s.#and france were hoping to bring g ssia into an anti-isis alliance. isis bombed a russian airliner last month. as chip reid reports today, french presidentrancois hollande visited the white house where presidenenobama said this about isis. >> it cannot be tolerated. it must be destroyed. and we must do it together. >> reporter: presint hollande said france wowod ramp up its air campaign, targeting isis command centers, training facilities and the hearts of cities controlled by the terror
group. president obama said his national security team had alalady put together a p pn to accelerate pressure on isis before the paris attacks. >> and we intend to execute on those plans. >> reporter: but, mr. obama gave no details and instead talked more about what's already been accomplished. >> we've taken thousands of strikes, have taken thousands of isil fighters, including top commanders and lders, off the battlefield. >> reporter: the president again called on russia to stop propping up the regime of syrian president bashar al-assad and join the u.s. coalition of 65 nations fighting isis. >> russia right now is a coalition of two-- iran and russia-- supporting assad. given russia's military capabilities and given the influence they have on the assad regime, them cooperating would
be enormously helpful and would allow us all to refocus our attention on isil. >> reporter: from washington, president hollande will head for russia where he plans to ask president tin to shift his focus to fighting isis, but, scott, it's a request that's been made many times before without success. >> pelley: chip reid at the white house. thanks.
right back. almost sixty milon americans are affected by mental illness. together we can help them withthhree simple words. my name is chris noth and i will listen. from maine to maui, thousands of high school students across the country are getting in on the action by volunteering in their communities. chris s ung: action teams of high schoho students are joining volunteers of america and major league baseball players to help train and inspire the next generation of volunteers. carlos pea: it's easy to start an action team at your school so you, too, can get in on the acacon. get in on the action at actionteam.org.

if you dig your bones, protect them. all: cbs cares! with unique insight into all of this, we turn to ambassador nick burns, a career american security council dirececr for russian affairs, and former u.s. representative for nato. he now teaches diplomacy at harvard. mr. ambassador, what are the stakes in what we've seen today? >> well, it's been a consequential day, scott. we haven't had a nato member
aircraft since 1952, and so the stakes are very high, that the russians learn the lessons of what happened but also that this can be de-escalated so that there's no further action, and russia and turkey and the other countries can go back, hopefully trying to combat isis. >> pelley: welel the russian president called it a stab in the back. could this escalate? >> it could escalate. i think there's-- i think the united states and president obama are going to work very hard to see that it doesn't, but there's an important principle at stake here, scott. every nation has a right to protect its own borders. and president obama sided with the turks today inaying that they have that right. it was a gross violation of international law for the russians even to fly close to that border, but to cross it, that's a red line that can't be crossed. and so i think the lesson here for the russians has to be they're fairly isolated right nono the middle east. attack and defeat isis but they're not really fighting
>> pelley: you know, the turks fired on this aircraft after it had been in their airspace for only about 30 seconds or so, we're told. why do you think the turks would make a point of shooting this airplane down? >> i think because there's a history here. the russians have violated turkish airspace several times since the russians began air operations in syria two months ago. and the turks have warned the russians pubficly and privately that there's going to be a response at some point. the russians may have thought that the turks weren't serious but they found out today that they were. it's a tragedy. it's not something, obviously, that the united states wants to see happen, but the turks do have a right to protect that border. the emphasis now has to be on making sure it doesn't happen again. >> pelley: ambassador nicholas burns, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> pelley: well, the war on isis means thth security at home wiwi be tighter as millions of americans head out for the holiday. here's jeff pegues. >> reporter: police at los angeles international airport today were armed with automatic
weapons. this thanksgiving week, amid isis threats, there will also be a larger police presence than usual in new york. police commissioner bill bratton. >> i think it quite clear what we're advocating through you, certainly is this idea of don't be aware. >> reprter: a new intelligence bulletin sent to law enforcement round the country warns that there could be copycats in the s. looking to replicate the paris attacks. ron hosko is a former assistant director of the f.b.i. how much of isis' strategy is about fear? >> i think a large proportion n about fear. could something happen? yes. but is there a greater likelihood of being struck by lightning or struck by a car on the way to d.c.? yes. >> reporter: today, president obama tried to reassure the public.. >> what happened in paris is truly horrific. i understand that people worry that something similar could happen here. i want you to know that we will
continue to do everything in our power to defend our nation. >> reporter: and that strategy involves studying tactics used in paris. intelligence officialselieve the e tackers conducted pre-operation surveillance. police in the u.s. are being advised to be on the lookout for suspicious people conducting surveillance on soft targets. >> pelley: j jf pegues, thanks. in another big story tonight, a white chicago police officer was charged today with murder more than a year after shooting a black teteager in the back. released tonight and chicago is bracing for a reaction. here's dean reynolds. here is dean reynolds. >> police said nothing as he turned himself in faces first-degree murder charges a cording to his lawyer scared to death.
state's attorney. >>his officer went over board. >> van dyk's trouble began in october of last year along this street when he and seven other officers pursued a robbery suspect. 17-year-old laquan mcdonald who was acts e radically and waiving a three-inch knife. no other officer felt the need to open fire accept van dyk, who prosececors say, 6 seconds after arriving on the scene shot mcdonald 16 times. it took 14 seconds, 13 of which the teenager was on the ground. prosecutors say van dyk w w preparing to reload when ordered to hold fire. van dyk said mcdonald lunged at him and that he feared for h life, but the prosecutor said a police videotape tells a far different story and so did an eyewitness. >> the motorist stated that mcdonald never movered toward, lunged at or did anyththg threatening towards the officer before he was shot and fell to the ground. >> for 13 months chicago
the video arguing it would jeopardize local and federal investigations of the shooting. a county judge last week over rode that argument and ordered the tapes be released the video is graphic, violentntnd c clling and there's concern once it's available for all to see it could provoke a violent reaction and painful questions about why it took so long to arrest the shooter seen on the tape. >> reporter: now here at the police headquarters the mayor and the superintendent of police have just held a press conference where they insisted th officer van dyk is no way representative of the chicago police department. scott, if van dyk is convicted he faces 20 years to life behind bars. >> and the video is in the process of being released tonight. dean, thank you. we now know where the paris attackers were planning to strike next until the police took them out.
