7:07 am
feds for the kind of the dispassionate fact based investigation that can produce a credible outcome accepted by all. u.s. medical examiner doing a independent autopsy to corroborate or perhaps refute the state's findings. this of course follows the federal local spat over the surveillance tape which seemed to show michael brown robbing that convenient store just before he was killed. sources tell us the fbi had urged local police not to do that arguing that releasing the tape which is evidence could inflame protesters and maybe bias the investigation. it's important to remember missouri officials remain in charge of the primary case and prosecutors there will decide whether or not to charge the police officer. but the justice department is also pushing a separate civil rights investigation examining the whole incident the response
7:08 am
and tight now dozens are on the streets conducting interviews and reviewing all the evidence. >> we should point out in the next half hour former prosecutor and defense lawyer is going to look at the federal investigation and the question of whose in charge of this case and what it all means. >> a major breakthrough this morning against the islamist terror group isis. recaptured had mosul dam from isis. that facility supplies electricity and water to much of iraq. charlie daget reports how american air power is playing a crucial role. >> they launched another attack to the dam just before dawn and have taken over parts but isis land mines and booby traps are throwing down their progress kurdish peshmerga have the

7:10 am
attack. >> get down? >> the first mortar blew up in front of the combat outpost. two more just behind. isis fighters were zeroing in and sending a clear message, we're still here. nearby just a week ago the town of mosmor in the outskirt of the erbil was empty except for isis militants but some of it residents have begin to return. but the scars remain and so does isis not far away. >> the offensive against isis won't stop the dam. they tend to win back on areas lost to isis relying heavily on u.s. air strikes. >> in erbil northern iraq. >> and with the fighting heating up in iraq and the violence in missouri president obama is pack at the white house. he arrived with his oldest
7:11 am
daughter overnight. the president is interrupting his vacation after taking criticism for taking some time off during a series of crises. major garrett is at the white house and do we know what he's going to do with these two days of meetings. >> three big meetings today. iraq ferguson missouri and immigration. on iraq held confer with the hour. the white house now expects great britain canada and australia to start the offensive against forces in iraq. the contribution is unclear but air support, intelligence and arms shipments are all live options. >> yesterday the white house informed congress with a letter saying it was expanding the mission to help forces retake the dam. sabotage of the dam could hurt the offensive justifying legally

the offensive. talking with eric holder to talk about potential civil rights allegations and the shooting of the michael brown and the state and local response to the protests and sporadic looting. also meeting to discuss future actions of the executive level to levelize three to 5 million adults who entered the country illegal. and one other note we're coming from the white house briefing room this morning because there is a construction project on the north lawn. tents are being built to protect correspondents who need them whoever they might be. when the project was originally authorized no one here expected the president would interrupt his vacation. back to you. >> thank you very much. texas governor rick perry is fighting back and making no apologies after friday's grand jury indictment against him. everyone is wondering what this
7:13 am
new legal battle means for 2016. >> this is a political mess. about the size of texas tx and it all started when a powerful democratic disagree in austin was charged with drunk driving more than a year ago and her behavior was caught on camera. >> the video is embarrassing and criminal. it shows the most powerful disagree in texas, rosemary lehmberg drunk and abuse ias she's booked for drunk driving. >> do you know what you're doing. >> yes, ma'am. we asked you plenty of times to stop kicking the door. >> he called on hem berg to resign and ordered he would cut funding to hers of if she refused and he followed through. striking more than $11 from her bojt. that move is why he's now facing charges. he illegally tried to coerce her
7:14 am
to quit. it's causing the a public and legal drama for the statesman. >> no question he has constitutional veto authority over line items in the budget. but the issue here is the fact that he attached that allegedly to a threat. e tried to say to a disagree you must leave office. you must resign if you want the money. >> his government is in rehab mode fighting to regain a foothold after a poor showing two years ago. with recent visits it's an welcoming like he's thinking of another run. over the weekend perry came out swinging. >> i exercise this authority to veto funding for an office who's leadership had lost the public's confidence by acting inappropriately and unethically.
7:15 am
>> and it went on the offensive during a sunday talk show. >> i stood up for the rule of law in the state of texas and if i had to do it again i would make exactly the same decision. >> now perry is going to new hampshire this week. but first he's going to have to stop by the police department in austin to have his fingerprints taken and get a mug shot. two images that a man interested in running for president obviously does not want out there. >> thank you. another ebola scare in the u.s. this morning. this time it's new mexico. a 30-year-old teacher is in isolation in albuquergue. recently spent time in sere areierra lean. the hospital says there's no risk to the public. >> but a growing risk in west africa. debra pada is in johannesburg south africa tracking violence and fears surrounding the spread. debra, good morning. >> good morning.
7:16 am
the ebola outbreak is west africa is spiraling out of control. according to health officials who are warning. and this is largely due to dysfunctional healthcare system asks rampant fear. >> the fear and mistrust took a violent turn in liberia's capital. an angry crowd raided an ebola isolation ward in the city's largest slum. shouting ebola did not exist and was a hoax to get money by the president. the mob looted the clinic removing contaminated medical items and many fled. some have been rehospitalized those many officials remain terrified that the infection could spread. treatment centers filling up faster than they can be provided. doctor's without borders is building two new isolation p units but some say this will not
7:17 am
be enough. >> at this stage the outbreak is totally out of control and we need to come up with other strategies to cover the situation. >> and the situation on the ground is desperate. already the death toll well over 1 thousand and a number of cases nearly 2,000 as international organizations scared up their response. even with the added help health officials say the outbreak couldn't continue in the six months. doctors without borders say it's like war and a fear and panic spread to other nations caught up. kenya is the latest country to ban flights to all affected areas. >> thank you. pope francis is headed back to the vatican. he wrapped up a busy five day visit to south korea. including a meeting with local religious leaders. >> good morning. the pope was said to be in good spirits throughout the trip. the vatican says the major
7:18 am
purpose was pastoral but what i merged was more political in nature, in part due to south korea's strategic location. pope francis entered seoul's cathedral to lead a mass on forgiveness and recommend reconciliation. acknowledged those who suffered on his way to the alaltar. stopping to and speaking to a congregation, the pope urged resolving the differences between north and south. reject a mind set shaped by suspicion and competition he said. perhaps the biggest headline of the trip came sunday during his speech in some to bishops. the pope pushed forward dialogue with countries across asia that
7:19 am
did not have diplomatic ties with the vatican. most notably china. china, a country of 1.3 billion has estimated 12 million catholic at least half worship in underground churches. the official chinese catholic church is overseen by the communist party and in the not the vatican. the pope said the church would not come as conquerors but rather as brothers to china. >> pope francis dispatched another telegram to china's president xi jinping extending his wishes. it's significant because when pope john pall ii they didn't accept his request. >> the u.s. open starts next

7:32 am
regulators. they happened between 2008 and 2012. in five cases, laboratory workerers were infected or got sick. they all recovered. the names of the labs are being kept secret because of federal bioterrorism laws. the washington post looks at the drought in the west. as we have been showing you california is the hardest hits. some areas haven't had substantial rain in three years. nearly 60% of the state is officially in an exceptional drought condition. that's the worst category. there is no relief the in sight. aquifers are the usual backup source. they are being pumped at unsustainable rates. i live in los angeles. man, we miss the rain. it's crazy dry out there snk britain's "guardian" says julian assange will leave his safehouse but they won't say when or why. >> we can confirm that i am leaving the embassy soon.
7:33 am
but perhaps not for the reasons that the murdoch press and sky news say. >> reporter: assange has been staying at the embassy of ecuador in london for two years. he told reporters his health has suffered. swedish investigators want to question him over sexual assault allegations. u.s. authorities want to talk to him about the leak of confidential hill tear document hs this 2010. finally, wall street journal looks at what happens when police officers wear body cameras. every officer on this force has a camera that records everything between the officers and the public. the first year use of force dropped an amazing 60%. citizen complaints fell nearly 90%. a lot of folks say it would have been helpful in a place like ferguson, missouri. >> interesting that they had them.
7:34 am
they just hadn't been deployed yet according to the reports. >> stunning numbers. 90% drop. >> incredible drop. we should point out that missouri's governor called out the national guard because of the latest violence in ferguson. police officers in riot gear fired teargas into crowds of protesters last night. the justice department said it is speeding up the probe of the police shooting that sparked the violence. cbs news legal analyst ricki ricki clemon joins us. good morning. >> good morning. >> front page "new york times." the autopsy shows michael brown was struck at least six times. that's the second autopsy. now we'll have another by the justice department. why? >> the justice department wants to shows the fundamentally fair and coming from the outside and basically starting over again. however, it is are extraordinary
7:35 am
under any circumstances. usually what we find is one autopsy. then perhaps the defense of a case would like to have another autopsy. the fact that now we already have two, the second one being at the request of the family from the very very well qualified michael bodden whom i have known for years and have watched testify many times. what michael bodden has found certainly supports the police autopsy. there are only so many gunshots that have been found. >> so we don't need a third. >> let's talk about what the private autopsy paid for partly by family members. he was shot six times. >> correct. >> four times in the arm in the front and two times in the head. we all thought perhaps he was running away from the police and shot in the back. >> let me begin by saying it's inconclusive until we know much more about the forensic evidence. what it does tell us certainly
7:36 am
is that he was either surrendering and had his head down. or he was charging. we don't know. >> they say there was no evidence of gunpowder. >> on the body. >> wasn't close. >> on the body. dr. baden has not yet had a chance or if he ever has a chance to look at the x-rays also not the clothes. one of the things we have to look at, jeff is what is the truth? we follow the truth wherever it goes. we must follow the truth in science. so it's not just the autopsy of the body. it is also the science of what gunshot powder if any, was found on the clothes. let alone we've got to look at the science of the car. that is what evidence is in that car. >> at this point we have seen the autopsy. we have seen the surveillance video. why have i still not seen the officer's report from that night of what he says happened. >> ordinarily during the course of the investigation, the
7:37 am
reports are not released. they just aren't until the investigation is over. one of the things that probably would have helped in this case was simply to know the number of shots that might have helped. ultimately these things usually take their time. we have to deal with the fact that eventually there is going to be a grand jury. that will settle the issue. >> thank you very much this morning. notre dame's head football coach is on the defensive todayment some of his top players are accused of academic impropriety. don baylor looks at the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. university officials promise an investigation into accusation that is four members of the team cheated on class assignments. brian kelly, the head coach said he was shocked and disappointed by the latest developments. less than two weeks before the fighting irish play their first game of the season head coach brian kelly was forced to
7:38 am
explain why academic problems continue to trip up many of his players. >> i think we have brought in the right young men. i think we have to continue to do a better job educating them. >> reporter: on friday the university announced star wide receiver davares daniels, corner back russell, eshak williams and kendall moore were accused of turning in papers and assignments written by others. >> at this juncture no one has been judged responsible for academic dishonesty. no one has been dismissed from the university. no sanctions have been imposed. >> reporter: with the investigation now under way, the four men are barred from playing in games and taking part in practices. the university said if any of them cheated, they would be disciplined appropriately. and the games they played in forfeited. >> we are in a process now of following every bit of evidence presented to us and seeing where
7:39 am
it leads. >> reporter: several members of the fighting irish, winners of 13 ncaa football championships have been penalized for their academic performance. daniels was kicked off the team last semester for failing grades while the starting quarterback was suspended last season after cheating on a test. kelly said he holds everyone on the team to a high standard. >> in our locker room we have a simple covenant. treat women with respect. don't cheat. don't lie. don't steal. our players see it every day when they walk into the locker room. >> daniels maintains he wrote his own papers and likely relayed that to school officials when interviewed. the other implicated players were on the 2012 team that won 12 games but lost the national championship to alabama. norah? >> thank you so much. it started in beverly hills. now the home of another world

8:04 am
and a shot was fired. that apparently is false. he was not shot in the back. what a pathologist does is look at entrance and exit wounds and it is clear that no shot was fired at his back. >> does it tell you that they all came in through the front and all on one side? >> well what you want to learn from the analysis is the position of the victim relative to the shooter. and it's my opinion that seeing four shots to the right arm was an indication to me that the police officer wanted to stop him. it's the last two shots that struck him in the head that really really stopped him permanently. the last shot to the skull was a lethal shot. >> they say no gun powder detected. do we have any indication how far away the officer may have been? >> if you have the clothing you could look at gunshot residue.
8:05 am
even without the clothing you could look at what is called tattooing if it's a close end shot. the best we can say at this point is that the gun was at least two or three feet away from the target. >> what about the position of his head in one of the shots? it appeared that he was leaning down because it went on the top of his head. >> if you picture the shooter shooting a weaponing, perhaps holding it at chest level, the victim had to have his head facing downward. he was either falling and the shot was fired or he was charging at the police officer and the shot was fired. that's the only way you can get a trajectory like that which was described by the doctor. >> and personal viewpoint, six shots shots? >> him but.

the bridge or the toll plaza but it is backed up solidly through the maze. metering lights going through very slowly and the east shore freeway commute. almost 50 from the brick to the maze. here's lawrence. and also very damp out there on some of the roadways as well. we've seen some pretty heavy drizzle approaching the coastline over sfo. yeah more of the fog and low clouds causing delays on arriving flights over an hour. the low clouds and fog will break up and pull back to the coastline but i think hugging the coast even into afternoon. some very mild temperatures for this time of year the next few days that low drops almost due south right near the bay area. in through tomorrow and wednesday. then moves on out of town. so these temperatures still warm in the afternoon and lots of 80s for the valleys, plenty of 70s inside the bay and 60s with fog out toward the coast. a little cooler for tomorrow and wednesday. then we start to warm things up slightly as we head in toward the weekend.

8:34 am
thing after another. we fractionate our attention and don't put attention into any one thing which leads to the production of courtrtisol, the strsz hormone and you're wasting time. >> so we should do what? >> turn off the e-mail when not using it. try to stay focused and avoid distraction in order to be more productive. >> i have to admit i'm one of the most disorganized people. what i love about the book is you basically tell us there are not mental tricks or brain exercises. you talk about physically changing your surroundings. what should we do if we find ourselves disorganized? >> the idea is to get things out of your head and into the external world. externlizing your memory brain extenderers. if you're always losing your keys, put a little hook by the door or a dish by the door where the keys always go. if they are always in there you
