4:34 am
ground forces into syria. president obama has always been very reluctant to send ground forces into syria the way george bush sent ground forces into iraq, for example. and i don't think france itself would send in ground forces. we may see more bombing attacks as you just mentioned, the french launched bombing rounds yesterday on syria. but i don't expect much more than that. >> you know, the president recently came under some criticism for saying that isis had been contained. since then, there was some clarification, t tt he was talking about geographical containment. i want to ask you. you're familiar with this organization. can isis really be contained? and, if not, then what? what do we do? what do we need to do to defeat isis? >> in order to defeat the islamic state, we have to confront it on many levels, both

4:36 am
between turkey and syria. the islamic state is still able to move men, materiel over that border, and it's harder for the islamic state now than it used to be, but i think the turks need to do still more. and, second, i hope there is great resolve among the countries in the g-20 to try to find an answer to the syrian conflict. >> ambassador robert ford, thank you so much. >> my pleasure. here in the united states, the attacks in parisisrompted increased security. the departrtnt of homeland security says it knows of no credible or specific threats of an attack here, but across the country, from new york to los angeles, police have added extra patrols and are ramping up surveillance efforts. don champion is at penn station in new york with details. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. high profile tgets here in new
