built. >> donald trump shifted focus dramatically last night appearing to blame hillary clinton for iran's execution of a nuclear scientist. trump did not provide any evidence. he tweeted, quote, many people are saying that the iranians killed the scientist who helped the u.s. because of hillary clinton's hacked e-mails. iran's government announced sunday that he was executed after spying for the u.s. he was defected to america in 2009 but decided to return to a clinton spokesman says trump is lying, tweeting, many people are saying equals i made this up. dozens of national security and foreign policy experts warn that donald trump could be, quote, the most reckless president in american history. the group of 50 republicans signed an open letter yesterday vowing not to vote for trump. they include former directors of the cia and national intelligence, plus two former homeland security secretarisecr.
group, quote, nothing more than the failed washington elite. >> michael morell endorsed hillary clinton in friday's "new york times." the former cbs news contributor called trump, quote, a threat to our national security. i spoke with morell last night on my pbs program. so tell me about why you felt compel compel compelled to change where you were, contributor to public boards, former acting director and deputy director of the cia, a man who'd gain increasing respect for his voice because of the access to media to say i'm going in a different direction? >> two things, i think, brought me to the decision to write the op-ed. one was a growing belief that
here, that mr. trump would be a threat to our national security as commander in chief. he has said things on the campaign trail that have assisted our adversaries, that have assisted vladimir putin, that have assisted isis. and then the second was, i've known hillary clinton a long time. and i felt that some of the perceptions that are out there about her are just not true. and so putting both of those reasons together, i decided t speak out. and one of the things, charlie, that struck me as i was going through this and i was actually writing the op-ed and talking to people about my views is that there were many people who share my views. there are many people who share what i wrote in that op-ed, but they're afraid to speak out. they're afraid of being attacked. they're afraid of the republican party not being with them down the road, right?
out. i felt afraid of the consequences of not speaking out. and i think that serious republicans of which there are many need to think about the consequences of not speaking out. >> morell also criticized trump's relationship with russia's president. >> here's what i would like to see him do. i would like to see him stand up tomorrow and denounce military incursion into ukraine. i would like to see him denounce putin's annexation of crimea. i'd like to see him denounce putin's assistance to the rebels in eastern ukraine that resulted in the shootdown of the malaysian airliner. i'd like to see him renounce what putin is doing in syria supporting a butcher and dictator. i'd like to see him just stand up and denounce putin. and i'll tell you that at the end of the day putin would have more respect for him than he
russian federation. >> unwitting agent of the federation recruited by putin. that's why he's taken the positions he's taken. >> morell also talked about what he personally would like to see done in syria, what he would like to see done in syria to end the civil war there. >> when we were in iraq, the iranians were giving weapons to the shia militia who were killing american soldiers. >> iranians were making us pay a price. we need to make the iranians pay a price in syria. we need to make the russians pay a price. here's what i want to do. i want to go after those things that assad sees as his personal power base. i want to scare assad. i want to destroy his presidential aircraft on the ground. i want to destroy his presidential helicopters. i want to make him think we're coming after him, right?
him, i'm not advocating that. i'm advocating going after what he thinks is his power base, right, and what he needs to survive. i want him to think about this is not going to end well for me. >> what he's saying is he would like to see this done on the ground by our allies of people who are in opposition to the assad government. that they ought to be doing more to make the russians fear, the iranians fear and assad fear. >>em michael morell's book he certainly has credentials to backup all the things he says, but he's really stepping out and speaking up. >> shows you how someone who's been involved with the cia the minds think. a sense of how he sees the world. and as he said there are many others like him. >> wonder how much that resonates with people out there when they hear from him. >> i think so too. team usa begins day four of the rio games after winning several more medals. go usa. the united states leads all

michael phelps came in second in the 200 meter butterfly semifinals. tonight he'll go for his 24th medal in that same event in the finals. it's being called the rematch in rio trying to redeem himself from the london olympics. american divers won silver in synchronized diving. johnson burst into tears when he saw the scoreboard and saw they had the medal. today of course it is back to womens gymnastics. the fierce five is looking to repeat as olympic team usa heavily favored to win that event because they just crushed the competition in the qualifying round. so it should be another good night watching the olympics and seeing some americans take home a lot more hardware, gayle. >> another good night. another late night. thank you very much, ben tracy. 15 years after 9/11, are we any safer? we'll talk with an author who or

gwyneth paltrow and jennifer aniston. i thought what a bad case of chickenpox but it looks like it works. but what is it? >> cupping is a technique that's been around for thousands of years. it's documented in egypt. ancient egypt and greece and other civilization. it's now being used around the world. we're seeing it more in our western culture. basically it's taking cups that action like suction cups. placing them in the body, usually the back or stomach. it takes five to 20 minutes. either using heat or a pump. you create a suction and that pulls up the capillaries, the small blood vessels which dilate and even break and that's what causes the bruises that we see. the goal is to alleviate pain and treat a lot of other disorders. and in addition in chinese
your life force. >> but does it work, help you to perform betsy. >> okay, well we don't have a lot of high-quality scientific evidence to prove it at all. in many cases it could be a placebo effect. first of all, you're creating localized inflammation. that can be the immune system. you're also that could release pain or endorphins. and release toxins and help cell repair and emphatic flow. >> any other way to do this? >> well, if you like it, it's like a sensation on your skin.
>> it's considered safe. >> they're unsightly. >> it's mostly safe. although there are cases, of course, of skin blistering, infections. >> how long does that last and how often should you do it? >> about five to seven days. it's recommended you do it every couple months. >> thank you. >> and it's legal. ahead, a dolphin flips over one of the most popular gadgets on the market. that is coming up next on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs morning rounds sponsored by the makers of nondrowsy claritin. join claritin nonblue skies

good morning. >> good morning. well, we're not safer, we've done a lot of things to make us safer. there are tens of thousands of men and women who make up every morning in the last 15 years doing yeoman's work to try to keep us safer. but the kinds of threats that we faced on 9/11 have expanded and have multiplied. in part because we went into iraq and -- you know -- >> let's talk about the threat and what we can do to make us safer. >> orchestrated threat that i write about the bio terror threat. the threat of a dirty bomb where someone can go into a hospital and fuel some radiological material very easily and mix it with a stand explosive, and create a bomb that causes radiation contamination that will scare people. and scare the country so much
evacuate, a large portion of lower manhattan or something or something like that. that's the kind of orchestrated threat. lone wolf who can go into a gun store, uniquely, in this country, and buy an assault rival and then shoot up a shopping mall or theater. and if he yells out an impression, in arabic, we assume that's a terror attack. than what has sadly become the attack that happens in this country with assault weapons. >> that's what will be borne out that more people will be killed by assault weapons than they will by terrorism? >> but terrorism is about fear. >> right. >> and that's what makes it such a force in this country. and such a force to contend with. and it makes the politics of terror dangerous for anybody.
extraordinary. number one, it's 20,000 words, you did a lot of work on this piece. but what's pass mafascinating t me is how you compared september 10th 2001 and after that. you said john ashcroft had -- >> the attorney general had rejected a request from the fbi to increase their antiterror branches. and the fbi in congress that day, that the biggest terrorism threat in the united states was from animal life activists. >> that's peta? >> right. >> and on september 11th, you'll remember, the president was reading to school children in an elementary children in florida. and ashcroft was on his way reading to school children in milwaukee. so that was a different time. this is now 15 years of what i call the september 12th era.
but we really have to take our hats off to the people who wake up every day. the department of homeland security. and the tsa who, you know, we love to ridicule and make fun of who have been obsessed with keeping us safe. and the only time we notice them is if there's an attack or if they do something stupid. >> you're very complimentary about jeh johnson? >> yeah, i think he did a good job. the bush administration and obama administration did a good job, from that day, september 10th when we were all asleep. >> you've all written this idea of never again which makes people feel safe is not realistic? >> right. it's a promise that donald trump is making. it's a promise that president
and the day avenufter, i can sey the president would want to reassure the country of that but it's totally unrealistic. but the idea that somebody can say i'm running for president and i'm going to declare war on islam. and the day i take office all of this is going to stop, it's just ridiculous. it's exactly what a terrorist want us to say. >> we assume efforts have been >> yes. >> and the second question comes up in terms of the future. what is it that we need to do, or not do? >> we need to deal with bio terrorist threats. dirty bomb threats. >> how do we get to it is my question? >> to deal with a dirty bomb is actually easy. it doesn't cost anything. what that entails the president of the united states getting on
bomb is scarier than it is. >> you're saying the reaction? >> yeah, the reaction. the other thing we have to do, is we have to accept the fact that never again is a fallacy. we seem to be okay with accepting the fact that people can be mentally ill do these things but we don't accept it for terrorists. >> in a political year,ou about an october surprise? >> right. i think that is a real possibility in part because, i don't want to engage on the price of politics, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the terrorists would love to have someone like a donald trump be the president of the united states because he is willing to declare war on all muslims. and that's the way they have framed the issue since september 11.
that bait. and president obama refused to take that bait. he campaigns on that. >> an article that's very frightening, i think there are a lot of lessons to be learned there. you say we've spent billions of dollars and it's always money well spent. >> we're on a beanbag, we kind of got that as business as usual. >> very usual, steven brill. thank you. we're going to take a turn to a lighter topic. take a glance in o green room if you will because this may attest like meat, may look like meat and may bleedoutr stratosphere camera. ..................... it won't be quite as hot today... with temps getting back to normal and a little below the next couple of days.... even the 90s showing up by tomorrow. ................ an area of low pressure passing by to the north will help take the

served on a bun. i think you're guacamole. the editor for "the new york times" cooking said heavenly helped paved way for other veggie burgers. >> veggie burger had a rough history in the united states, right. we think of as a patty filled with saw dust and dirt. well, that's changed. >> there a difference in how the purveyors of it? >> yeah, a burger should not be about making a burger out of hamburger. it's about making a burger. >> reporter: last year burger joint white castle tested out a veggie slider. customers liked it so much, they put it on a permit ewe in every city. >> i'm a carnivore but a veggie
