7:03 am
>> welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose and norah o'donnell are off. no worries, anthony mason is here. >> hello there. >> i think that's a good thing. hello to you. as you wake up in the west the u.s. is taking serious steps toward air strikes on isis forces in syria. president obama ordered reconnaissance flights over the area today. >> not approving air strikes yet and syria's government said it needs to know about any attack ahead of time. officials are planning for possible action at the pentagon. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. these reconnaissance flights will be flown by manned and unmanned aircraft, looking for targets inside syria. this is the first effort before launching air strikes against isis in syria. >> isis is based in a northern part of syria, where they say there would be little threat of american warplanes being shot
7:04 am
down by syrian air defenses, plans drafted by the pentagon would use strikes by manned and unmanned aircraft in an attempt to disrupture i isis operations. following last week's execution of journalist james foley. secretary hagel called isis an imminent threat to every interest we had. dempsey said the group has an apocalyptic, end of days strategy that will have to be defeated. president obama has not yet made a decision. but his spokesman said isis could not count on syria remaining a sanctuary. >> a willingness where necessary to use military force to protect the american people regardless of orders. >> reporter: until now, u.n. air strikes have been aimed at isis forces in iraq. those strikes have stalled the isis advance across northern iraq but left its center of power in syria untouched.
7:05 am
air strikes on the syrian side of the border could disrupt but not defeat isis. that would require sending in troops on the ground a move president obama has ruled out for both iraq and syria. in iraq the u.s. is arming iraqi and kurdish ground troops and will perhaps send in more advisers to help take back territories seized by isis. in syria, the administration has requested $500 million by congress to train and eequip local fighters to go after isis. they admit those are long range plans at best. you mentioned the syrian government is demanding that all flights over its territory be coordinated with it. pentagon officials say that is not likely to happen. anthony? >> david thank you. this morning, peter theo curtis' parents say they're overjoyed by his release. the american journalist was captured in syria nearly two years ago. he was freed sunday by an

7:07 am
another was severely damaged. warnings were issued. more than 20 people were wounded. two others died in another air strike. a fight over leg room forced a united airline flight to make an unscheduled landing. it happened sunday on a trip from newark new jersey, to denver. a passenger refused to remove his so-called knee defender device, stopping the passenger in front of him from reclining her seat. their argument became so heated united diverted plane to chicago. flight then continued to denver without the two. the knee defender was created to combat shrinking leg room and attaches to your tray table. the faa leaves it up to the carriers to decide if customers can use them. >> how can that end well anthony? the passenger in front threw water on the guy in the back to say move that thing. >> i've wanted to do that myself. >> not a good situation. it is all good for "breaking bad" this morning after a big night at the emmy awards last
7:08 am

"breaking bad" whose series finale aired last year. it was a wonderful send-off and a chance for them to say thank you and good-bye. >> "breaking bad." >> "breaking bad" ended its run by taking home the emmy for best drama series. bryan cranston won his fourth emmy he gave an emotional thank you, anna and aaron paul. >> i love you so much.
7:09 am
you were with me all the way. and i appreciate that. >> but cranston reminded viewers he was equally adept at comedy telling julia louis-dreyfuss they co-starred in seinfeld episode. >> we actually had a kissing scene together. >> he found a way to remind her. >> for her career she's won five emmys, had 18 nominations. >> yeah, yeah he was on "seinfeld." yes. >> traditionally held on a sunday but moved to a monday this year, partly to avoid a conflict with the mtv video music awards. >> that's right, mtv still has an award show for music videos even though they no longer show music videos. that's like network tv holding an award show and giving all the trophies to cable and netflix.
7:10 am
>> network television brought home the gold. >> there's no accounting for taste. and that's through a lot of good fortune i stand up here tonight. >> jim parsons picked up his fourth emmy for "the big bang theory." allison jenning. and julianna margulies for "the good wife." >> all these incredible are being written as interesting, complicated characters and you just don't see any of the characters we play on tv on film. >> the comic genius of robin williams. long-time friend billy crystal, did the honors. >> i spent many happy hours with robin on stage. brilliance was astounding. relentless energy was kind of thrilling. >> the emmy goes to -- >> while jon hamm lost to bryan cranston he got a shout out to

"modern family" won for fifth straight year tying "frazier's" record.

"orange is the new black" was nearly shut out. i'll have, of course backstage interviews with all the winners coming up at 8:00 tonight on "entertainment tonight" where, as you said we'll be debuting our brand new set which i think is absolutely fabulous. a new era of "entertainment tonight." what better than starting tonight with the emmys with our

new set. it's going to abe lot of fun. >> nancy, glass table with white chairs where have we seen that before? >> beautiful set. if it works for you, it could work here. >> i think it looks very sharp. >> yes we do. >> nancy, thank you. we'll share more of billy crystal's emmy tribute to robin williams. that's ahead. the earthquake that shook northern california on sunday may have called $1 billion in damage. damage. >> the shock of the 6.0 quake is still setting in this morning. this is from a baby monitor. the baby is okay. jolt rattles the crib. >> reporter: he rolls right over and falls back to sleep. i love it. new video of a music store getting rock bid the earthquake. john blackstone is in napa where people continue to assess the damage.
7:13 am
john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. since the earthquake that did so much damage on sunday there have been a series of aftershocks here. most of those have been much too small to feel. but earlier this morning, there was a 3.9 aftershock. it was slightly felt. there are no reports of any damage. inspectors searching for structural damage caused by the earthquake in napa put red tags on those buildings too dangerous for people to enter. he was counting on rental income from the building to support his retirement. >> we're going to take a hit. if fema comes through and you can get some money out of it to help get through this -- >> reporter: schools in napa will be closed for a second day as classroom cleanup continues. engineers continues inspecting two-thirds of the city schools and have found no serious damage. >> thank goodness it happened in the middle of the night.
7:14 am
if people had been here a lot more damage, you know could have happened. >> reporter: many here are still recovering. >> it was a very violent jerk and power went off. and i fell and something hit me on the head. i don't know what it was because the power went off. >> reporter: she might have benefited from the experimental earthquake early warning system that sounded an alert at the university of california berkeley. 10 seconds before the shaking hit. >> it's a lot of time ten seconds before the ground starts to really shake. that's the idea. we want to build public systems, push this warning out to people's cell phones. that way they can take cover. >> reporter: there is good news about a 13-year-old boy who was the most badly injured victim of this earthquake. nicholas dillon was crushed beneath falling bricks from a chimney at his home. his condition has now been upgraded from serious to fair. >> thank you, john. for another night, the city of ferguson remains free of protester
7:15 am
protesters. despite quiet on street, calls for justice are not stopping. the family of 18-year-old michael brown is asking people to turn their outrage into action. vladimir dudier is in missouri. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. thousands gathered at the baptist church monday to pay their respects to michael brown and his family. this was a very emotional service. and there were some from the pulpit calling for justice and there were others calling for calm. as the family of michael brown jr. had the support of thousands as they laid to rest the 18-year-old shooting victim. filmmaker spike lee, several white house aides and jesse jackson. his mother leslie in front of the kask. >> michael brown's blood is

7:18 am
over 22 months while they were in the governor's mansion. assistant u.s. attorney michael dry also showed a picture of the two holding hands as they headed into court implying that the couple's estrangement is a ruse to avoid corruption charges. he also said it was his wife not him, who solicited most of the gifts from virginia businessman johnny williams. governor mcdonnell himself accepted golfing trips, cape cod vacation and a $50,000 loan from williams that had no required monthly payments. governor mcdonnell who seemed nervous under tough questioning, said he initially thought a rolex williams gave him was fake and that the gifts were appropriate because he didn't do anything for williams' nutritional supplement business in exchange. but the prosecutor noted that six minutes after you e-mailed jonnie williams to ask for money, you e-mailed a top
7:19 am
adviser to say please see me about anatabloc studies at university of virginia. and an event at the governor's mansion that the governor's wife planned and he attended designed to launch one of williams' new products. mcdonnell claimed east of wasn't aware of the events purpose. but there were bottles of the supplement at every table and he showed a picture of the former governor holding a bottle of the pills himself at another event in 2011. the prosecution is trying to argue that mcdonnell had a habit of seeking out freebies. one example we learned of yesterday, the governor's staff prepared briefing binders, listing donors who would let him play golf for a reduced price or for no money at all. gayle? >> all right, nancy. watch out for those fake rolexes. seechls like a bad tv movie waiting to high pressure building in
