7:03 am
in the united states. new jersey state health department said minutes ago a nurse quarantined in a hospital is now being released. kaci hickox had threatened a lawsuit if she was not allowed to leave. she's tested negative for ebola. >> a 5-year-old boy rushed to new york bellevue last night is being tested for the virus this morning. officials say the child recently returned from west africa. bill plante is at the white house where officials are planning on releasing new federal guidelines. bill, good morning. >> good morning. good morning to ou veers in the west. the white house pushed new york new jersey and other states to drop that quarantine. the administration has new guidelines coming out. they hope the states will follow them. they say the current guidelines are not grounded in science. late last night, cuomo modified the requirements. >> a health care official who
7:04 am
returns to this region who had exposure to infected people, will be asked to remain in their homes for a 21-day quarantine period. but new jersey governor chris christie saying he thinks the federal government will soon follow his lead. >> i don't believe when you're dealing with something as serious as this that we can count on a voluntary system. this is the government's job. if anything else the government's job is to protect the safety and health of our citizens. >> in the series of television interviews sunday dr. anthony fauci of the national institutes of health called the practice draconian and he warned of unintended consequences of a policy he said was not based on science. >> the idea of a blanket quarantine for people who come back could possibly have a negative consequence of essentially disincentivizing people from wanting to go there. the best way to stop americans is to stop the epidemic in
7:05 am
africa, and we need those health care workers to do that. >> nurse kaci hickox, the first health worker quarantined under new jersey's policy has been in isolation at a new jersey hospital since friday. she spoke out sunday about her confinement saying she's completely healthy and poses no threat. >> the quarantine and how it's being carried out doesn't make sense. it's not evidence based. and the second thing is it's really inhumane. >> president obama meet with his ebola response team sunday to work out new guidelines for returning health care workers. those will be released in a few days. the white house hopes those will take the place of state's restrictions. meanwhile samantha power, the nation's u.n. ambassador is in west africa this morning visiting the stricken ebola nations. she, too, emphasized the message saying health care workers should be treated like conquers heroes and not stigmatized for the tremendous work they've done.
7:06 am
>> bill, thank you so much. lawyers for kaci hickox say they there was no reason for new jersey to keep her isolated. >> there was an error made when she was -- came into this country. she was then evaluated. and once that evaluation took place as best we have been informed by the medical authorities who are taking care of her, she is not febrile, she is not contagious, she does not pose a risk. >> we spoke earlier with our dr. jon lapook. he spoke earlier with kaci hickox on the phone. good morning. >> good morning. >> tell us her condition. >> yesterday she said she was fine. she's feeling frustrated but she's feeling fine. >> is it possible she could get sick later? >> that's always possible. but what really frustrated her, when she landed from sierra
7:07 am
leone, they were all smiles. the smiles erab straighted when people found out where she was from and what she had been doing. she felt like a criminal. she said she hadn't had food or water for a couple of hours and she got flush. that's when they said it was 101. turned out she did not have a fever. she said take it orally i think it's just because my skin is flushed. they said, no, we're not going to do that. >> is this a policy based on fear rather than medical fact? >> i think there's a lot of fear going on. there will be some middle ground where we can keep the public safe, and at the same time maintaining the dignity and respect of these heroes who are returning from west africa the people who are going to make sure that that epidemic goes away so it doesn't come here, those are the people we have to treat the right way. >> you talked to her. she said this was a knee-jerk reaction by politicians, by governor chris christie. >> she was really incensed that governor christie, i have to say, especially by one thing that he said. he said, she's obviously ill and that really got her goat.
7:08 am
he has not examined her, he is not a physician. where does he come off saying that? it turns out it probably could have been a falsely elevated temperature. >> and dr. fauci said yesterday it is not based on science and he opposes the quarantine. >> yes and i think people as they worry about getting infected have to remember, in all of this with all that's gone on so far, all the missteps, mr. duncan going home, nurse vinson being on a plane and all that, the number of people who have been infected is two and both of those were nurses who were, you know, sort of immersed in fluids. nobody has gotten infected in the united states from casual contact. >> very important point. thank you, jon. >> interesting what samantha said over there. they should be treated as heroes. not stigmatized. >> they should be treated as heroes. we have to treat them with the dignity they deserve. >> thank you so much. the first new yorker con firmed to have ebola is in serious but stable condition this morning at bellevue hospital. dr. craig spencer has been there
7:09 am
since thursday. the 33-year-old doctor got the virus while treating patients in new guinea. he received a plasma transfusion on friday from ebola survivor nancy writebol. and "60 minutes" introduced us to four nurses who put themselves at risk caring for the first ebola patient diagnosed in america. we'll find out how that dangerous work affected their lives outside the hospital. it's some of the information you didn't hear last night, that's ahead only here on "cbs this morning." a second victim of a school shooting in washington state died last night. the gunman shot five students on friday. one of them died at the scene. the 14-year-old boy then shot and killed himself. the other three victims remain in the hospital. carter evans is at marysville-pilchuck high school in seattle. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, children here would normally be ready for school but classes here are closed all week, as people struggle to figure out what set off this
7:10 am
teenaged gunman. students and community leaders returned sunday to marysville pilchuck high school to remember the victims of friday's shooting including 14-year-old gia soriano who died from head injuries late sunday night. a spokeswoman spoke on behalf of the family. >> we made the decision to donate her organs so others may benefit. our daughter was loving and kind and this gift will reflect her life. >> reporter: those who knew the shooter and his victims are beginning to piece together the events that led to the deadly shooting in the school cafeteria. it appeared he wanted his closest friends at that lunch table that day. >> yeah. i just don't understand what was going through his head that day. >> reporter: page iker was close friends with the 14-year-old gunman jaylen fryberg, and his five victims. but on friday she wasn't in the cafeteria when the shooting began. do you think he wanted to take his friends with him?
7:11 am
>> i honestly think if he wanted to do something to himself he didn't want to go by himself. >> he shot five people in the head. page's best friend zoe galasso, died at the scene. four others were injured. two of his cousins and another died last night. >> did you see this coming? >> no. it was completely out of the blue. >> reporter: a week earlier he was named homecoming prince. bau he left ominous messages online. the day before the shooting he tweeted it won't last. it will never last. >> there were tweeted. he was not like himself. >> reporter: how are you dealing with this now? >> i'm just like in complete shock. it doesn't feel so real to me. >> reporter: students who witnessed the attack say it could have been worse if not for a quick-thinking teacher megan silberberger who confronted fryberg during the chaos. >> i think her actions were amazing, wonderful. i'm glad she was there. the straight answer is, yes, i think she's probably saved some
7:12 am
lives. >> reporter: police aren't talking about how fryberg got the gun or his motive for the killings, but the shootings do come at a highly charged time in washington as voters consider two gun control measures on the november ballot. it's a new era this morning in afghanistan. u.s. marines and their britain allies handed over operations at helmond province after 13 years of fighting. helmand was the most deadly region of afghanistan for coalition forces. this morning all u.s. marines are out of there. elizabeth palmer is in london with more on what was a major milestone for our military. elizabeth, good morning. >> good morning, norah. that's right, as of today, there are no u.s. forces left on that sprawling complex called leather neck and bastion, two hubs that were the base of u.s.
7:13 am
operationings in afghanistan. this is a major turning point in a war that as you pointed out lasted over a decade. the flags were lowered for the last time at the vast helmond base shared by the u.s. and british forces. the stars and stripes were folded up for the journey home. defending southern afghanistan from the taliban is up to the afghans now. at camp leather neck a sprawling desert complex, the marines have been packing for weeks. this is an historic moment. the end of u.s. marine combat missions in afghanistan and the close of a chapter in america's longest war. corporal matthew thompson from maine has been fighting in helmand for six mondays. >> i'm sure people are going to ask me if we made a difference in afghanistan. i hope we did. i know we did. hopefully it stays that way. for how long, i'm not sure.
7:14 am
>> reporter: 2,210 u.s. american military personnel have died on afghan soil since 2001. the aim then was to defeat the al qaeda-linked militants who planned the 9/11 attacks but what seemed like a simple objective at the time morphed into a complex battle not only against violent extremists but against poverty, drugs, and corruption. this may be almost mission over but not everyone believes it's mission accomplished. >> i'm worried that my son has to come back, the future generation of marines have to come back and start over again much like iraq. >> that u.s. drawdown in afghanistan is going to continue until the 1st of january, 2015 when a small u.s. force of just under 10,000 military personnel will be left in afghanistan but in a support and training role. charlie? >> elizabeth, thanks. a new isis video emerged
7:15 am
over the weekend showing hostage john cantlie. he was held with james foley who was executed in august. they described the horror that foley, the captive, endured before they were beheaded, including waterboarding and torture. our guest wrote this story. welcome. >> thank you so much. >> what were your sources? how did you get remarkable detail and terrific stories? >> my number one source and this was the former hostages held with james foley and with the other captive. in addition i was also able to speak to a former member of isis who ran afoul of the group some time last year and became a prisoner himself in the same jail where foley was held. he was held with foley for three weeks and is now back in europe where i was able to speak with him for the first time. >> and you even show foley realized they were talking to his family because of the details they had. >> yes.
7:16 am
for the first year of captivity, the captors made essentially no demand and i think he was very desperate. it wasn't clear why they were holding him, what they wanted with him. a year in, which is roughly november, december, they took all of the hostages out one by one and by this time there were close to two dozen and they asked them three proof of life questions. in foley's case it was something very specific about who cried at your brother's wedding and when he heard the questions the others said when he came back he broke down crying because he knew my family finally knows i'm alive and surely the government is going to negotiate my release which is a real tragedy that that did not happen. >> the details how they were beaten, starved, waterboarded, is really difficult and also of these i think it was 23 prisoners, they were divided into two groups. why? >> basically the americans and
7:17 am
brits were put in a different category than the other europeans. what the other hostages say yes, of course, there was a certain animus because of our position on the war. but the other is they realized the u.s. would not pay and they were punishing our country's policy on ransom. >> you also mention how foley organized games. >> this was the second time he was taken. he was kidnapped one year earlier in libya. people held with him in libya people that were held with him in syria said the same thing. he is the one who organized lectures. people would give a lecture on a topic they knew well. they played risk which i was able to discover from his brother was a past time with the foley family. and at christmastime, they did a jailhouse version of secret santa. >> thank you so much. wonderful to have you here. we should note that it is eight days before the midterm elections. new numbers from the cbs news

8:03 am
but it is the hospital who will be dealing with the questions of ebola and forcing quarantine. so let's talk about quarantine versus isolation. in isolation what you do is you have a person who is ill, a person who has the epidemic ebola, that person is isolated. then we have the the issue of quarantine. what quarantine means is the states have the right under their basic public safety policies that they can take someone who does not yet have the symptoms but has been exposed, and they can isolate that person while that person could potentially develop symptoms. here it's 21 days. >> what happens if the person says i done want to be quarantine quarantined. can you be refused? >> if you refuse i guarantee you that the police powers, not my husband's powers, the state police powers can come into effect and you're going to be
8:04 am
quarantined. quarantine is not a voluntary compliance. quarantine is through the means of the state. if you say i'm going to refuse, what you need to do is hire a lawyer. or a lawyer will come and represent you. in this case, norman seigel has come to represent her and allow her to be a test case. it's important that we have a test case here to see if the states are using quote/unquote, the least restrictive means necessary. >> right. their point is overly broad. >> right. that's exactly what mr. seigel is saying. this is overly broad in new jersey. you know now we have a different policy in new york than we do in new jersey. ultimately what you have here is the courts have to do a balance. the courts have to look at the individual state rights that allows the state rather than the federal government, to quarantine people because hub lick health and safety should not be sacrificed for an individual's rights. but when they do this balance,
8:05 am
we have to do that the person has been exposed, which she has, that secondly she's put into a safe habitable environment. here it's going to say -- norman is going to say this is way more than a safe, habitable environment. >> no one has gotten ebola from casual contact yet. they've only got it -- the health care workers have got it while they were treating a patient with ebola. we just showed the cell is 15 by 20. there's a portable toilet and no shower. is that humane. >> the question is not whether or not it's humane. the question may be the balance and they're going to say this is too restrictive. the courts may disagree. >> so any health care worker who flies back to new jersey or ambassador, they're going to quarantine them in a tent like this? >> not necessarily. ultimately we have to remember nurse hickox is in the unfortunate decision of being the first one back. ultimately the policies will
8:06 am
morph and they'll try to make it more habitable. >> really interesting. >> we'll be back in the courthouses this week. >> we'll see you later this week. >> with miss bratton. and we have a follow-up this morning on brittany maynard. she's the brain cancer patient ready to end her life with the aid of a doctor. remember we told you about her? 29-year-old visited the grand canyon last week. in aprils doctors gave maynard six months to live. she chose november 1st, after her husband's birthday as a possible day to die. now she wants to see how the disease progresses. she wrote on her blog, the canyon was breathtakingly beautiful and i was able to enjoy my time with the two things i love most my fame and nature. she was on the cover of "people" magazine this week. >> i'm glad she's not committed to november 1st. if you're feeling great november 1st. she may want to rethink it. it seems like she is. >> new medical research finds

8:16 am
digital babies he's able to calculate the risk of two people pconceiving a child with any one of 500 severe recesssive pediatric disorders. for now it's available for $2,000 for clients using sperm banks and egg donors to conceive. the goal is to expand it to all couples who want to have a baby. >> you think everyone who's going to have a baby should have a digital baby first? >> i see a future in which people will not use sex to reproduce. that's a very dangerous thing to do. >> ann morris and lee silver join us. good morning. >> good morning. >> i can't tell you how many people when we watched this piece said what is he saying you're not going to use sex to reproduce, what is he talking about? >> that's been going on for a long time the separation of sex and reproduction. the other way, with the birth control pill and contraception, you have sex without reproduction since the 1970s and
8:17 am
'80s we've had artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization. >> but you think it's dangerous to reproduce using traditional sex. why? >> well, if i can jump in just to clarify, most people will get great news back from this kind of analysis and can go back to dinner and a movie and it's great. but for people like me who are walking around with genes and genetic mutations who may put our children at risk with our reproductive partner, we have a way now to get that information at the earliest possible point in the facility journey and that's what this company is about. >> what do you say lee that, some people is saying this is like playing god, it crosses the line. >> i'd say medicine has been doing that for 200 years since we first developed vaccines and 20th century antibiotics and all of that is looking towards increasing people's likelihood of being healthy and having a
8:18 am
normal life. >> then there's the question of designer genes. >> yes. all we are doing is seeing whether two people have mutations that are not compatible with each other and then they can -- in the future we'll be able to make sure their child is without disease. >> i was just going to say we've been talking to families about this technology and this kind of innovation for many many years. what's really clear from those conversations is what people care about is the health of their future baby. >> that's true of course. >> if you want smarter kids? >> you should read to your children, you should put them in preschool. but if you want to protect your future children from serious diseases, this is when this kind of information and technology becomes really powerful. >> i actually did this task. put saliva in a tube and one of their companies is the manhattan sperm bank where all the men who have donated sperm have also done the same thing and they matched me up with 100 men from
8:19 am
the manhattan sperm bank. >> to determine what? >> what would be a compatible match. digitally i had sex essentially with these 100 men from the manhattan sperm bank and 25 of them were immediately eliminated because we would have a bad genetic match. >> i hear you. that's so you don't have a bad match, that's the point of this. but if you were trying to go further than that and make sure it was a match that had all kinds of positive things about it, you could do that as well? >> that's not what we're doing. >> i know that but i'm asking you to go past and tell me where the science is. >> well the science makes it possible, and lee you can make to this as well the science makes it possible to see any genetic traits in advance. what people care about and certainly what the mission of this organization is is to help parents protect their future children from diseases. >> but you did say one of the best genetic matches would have been a peruvian man for me who was a sperm donor, right? >> that's right. his genetic material is very
8:20 am
different so he didn't carry the same mutations that you carry. we should say that everybody carries mutations. he did you did, but you're compatible. >> so this technology can be used for any single gene mutation. there are hundreds of them. what about though and this is in your patent that people will choose this technology to choose a child for a certain eye color, hair color, gender lots of other things like that that have nothing to do with preventing disease. >> that's so-called designer genes. >> the patent is confusing and so i really want to be clear on this point. that's not what we're doing and -- >> you've said that three or four times. i know you're very concerned that people thinks that's what you're doing rather than doing it in your case for health reasons. >> but i also want to be clear about who we are as a company and the mission and the heart of what we're doing, it's also for clarity that i want to have this conversation. >> we control how the patent is
