7:06 am
many are concerned with the chilling effect that that could have. elaine, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. in tinseltown the reaction is mixed. some stars are voicing their concerns over whether this decision will set a dangerous precedent in hollywood, with major consequences for expression and personal liberty. while others say sony had no other options. the billboards for sony's "the interview" are gone but the outcry over the studio's controversial decision to pull the film is really just beginning. >> when you really start to think about it, the ramifications of this, wow. >> as an artist in this industry i feel awful that any kind of creative expression has been shut down. in any way, shape or form. it's something that just shouldn't happen. >> i'm so disappointed. i wanted to see the movie. i think this is the wrong thing to do. >> that's it? so kim jong-un gets to decide what movies we make? >> we're going to north korea! >> reporter: the film was slated to debut in thousands of theaters nationwide on christmas

7:09 am
on november 19th, suspect omar gonzalez made it over the fence and into the east room of the white house before he was apprehend. the agency's acting director joseph clancy addressed that incident and a host of other issues the agency faces at a hearing last month. >> i openly acknowledge that a failure of this magnitude, especially in light of other recent incidents requires immediate action and longer term reform. >> reporter: but, say the panelists, the problems exposed by recent events go deeper than a new fence can fix. what the secret service really needs, says this latest report is new leadership. because it's too insular and needs to strengthen the culture of accountability. the rank and file and very senior members do not have confidence that discipline is imposed in a fair and consistent manner. the panel recommends that the next director be someone from the outside but with a law enforcement or military background. both the uniformed division that protects the white house grounds
7:10 am
and the agents who protect the president and top officials are short-staffed. the report calls for 200 more uniformed officers and 85 agents plus increasing regular, on the job training which has now fallen below acceptable levels. the panel made many other recommendations about technology and operations which are classified. they also suggested candidates to take over as the new director. and an appointment that's expected very soon. the report notes that some of the changes were suggested years ago. and not acted on. homeland security secretary jay johnson says this time must be different. >> all right, bill, thank you. important report. sources tell cbs news three isis leaders were killed in iraq. one of them is identified as hazi mutazz a high-ranking official in the terror group who used to be an iraqi army colonel
7:11 am
under saddam hussein. attacks over the past month also killed the head of isis operations in iraq and a mid-level commander in the northern city of mosul. defense officials believe the strikes significantly weaken the isis leadership in iraq. this morning many u.s. businesses are making plans to get into cuba. they're hoping for a big boost in trade after that historic decision to restore diplomatic relations between the two countries. adriana diaz is there. in havana right now where cuban also expect great things from closer ties with the u.s. adriana, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. while american companies can look forward to one day doing business with cuba an unbrideled sense of optimism has unleashed on the streets of havana, where the future now looks more promising than ever. oliga hernandez owns a restaurant near the center of havana. for business owners like her, the gravity of raul castro's speech is starting to set in. it's such a huge step, she said. for cuba, it will be very good.
7:12 am
with a business dependent on dollars, he shops more will visit cuban shores once travel restrictions are lifted. "we started off with room for 25. now we can seat 50 and maybe in a few years we'll seat 100." it's not just cuban entrepreneurs that are optimistic. major american companies including mastercard, cisco, marriott, pepsi, and major league baseball have all shown interest in doing business in cuba. it's a move that could rapidly transform a country virtually frozen in time since the u.s. embargo was imposed in 1960. >> the u.s. embargo has hurt cuba tremendously. it has hurt the average cuban on the streets. >> reporter: this man remembers cuba before the embargo. "we're really grateful to the u.s. government," he says, "to president obama and president raul for improving relations."
7:13 am
here in the market, shoppers have a sense of relief. knowing half a century of ams noty may come to a close. >> more clothes, more food. much cheaper. for the majority of cubans who have become accustomed to life under the embargo, this week's news provided hope for future. >> it's a new beginning because the u.s. is such a close neighbor, so powerful, so wealthy, so large, and this provides cuba with an opportunity. to begin a new stage in its life. >> repairing relations strained by more than 50 years of cold war tension won't happen overnight so for now the embargo remains in place. for that reason many cubans remain cautiously optimistic but take comfort knowing change is finally within their grasp. >> stocks are higher again this morning after a big turnaround in the market. the dow jones industrial average is trading around 18,000. it has been a wild ride this
7:14 am
week. the index saw big drops before surging wednesday and thursday. it jumped 321 points yesterday alone. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> what's behind this? >> i think it's a janet yellen rally. the federal reserve says they're not likely to increase the interest rates any time soon. if you're really parsing the statement, it looks like somewhere in the middle of next year and that was a greats relief to investors who were worried they were going to pull it forward into the first quarter. we're also seeing a little bit of calm around the oil market. although oil has plunged. janet yellen said something really important in her press conference. she said oil price drop is transitory meaning it's going to be okay, everyone relax about it. and finally yesterday morning, vladimir putin actually helped markets -- i can't believe i'm saying this -- because he basically said the russian government would intervene and
7:15 am
help prop up the russian currency. that, together gave us a fabulous two-day rally, on track now for a real santa class rally. >> boy. we heard him talking about bears that this is affecting the stock market here. so what's your suggestion for investors now? >> i think it's hard. if you bailed out at some point in the last few years, it's hard to figure out how to get back in. i would say if you can, develop some sort of game plan and force yourself to get back on track. now, here's the thing. if you're a long-term investor, these gyrations, who cares. you're in it for the long term. you don't worry about it. it is part of being an investor. >> it's interesting what it's doing to states across the country texas, which there's talk about a recession in texas. >> this is interesting. oil prices plunging 45% in six months. i think a lot of people have predicted oil prices would drop. but it's two factors. a slowdown in places like japan, china, europe. but it's the production side here in the u.s. that's huge. and if some of the big oil producers decide to cut back on
7:16 am
that production it could hurt big oil producing states like texas and north dakota. >> i thought it was interesting, what you said about the texas realtors association. they came out and said next year, if oil prices stay at these levels next year, oil prices could drop 12% in texas. >> for homes? >> for homes. this is really important about this, i don't want to be -- look at the dark side of this because overall lower oil is good for most consumers. it's not good if you live in texas or dakota. >> thank you, jill. good to see you. this morning one of the late night tv's most original characters, that would be stephen colbert, is gone. he ended a nine-year run last night with a final burst of truthiness with some very famous friends. one of them is at the table. it's not you, jill. he'll take over the theatre next year. vladimir duthiers is outside the studio. vlad, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. good morning to our viewers in

threat blowing through their doors. robbers are using a tactic called crash and grab. their target chicago's upscale shopping district the magnificent mile. dean reynolds in in chicago with the video. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning to our viewers in the west. well, as you're about to see, crash and grab burglaries are not terribly sophisticated. they involve blunt force and a big pay off. they certainly give new meaning to the term "breaking and entering." as these surveillance videos show, all you need to pull off a crash and grab is a stolen car and the determination to drive through glass storefronts or even brick walls to get what you want. the heists have taken place at louis vuitton noom neemp marcus and other expensive store, usually overnight when they're closed, and foot traffic outside is minimal. teams of thieves basically grab anything they can get their hands on before stealing away.

safe. >> reporter: so far there have been only two arrests and while no one has been injured, as long as thieves are using cars as a weapon, law enforcement believes it's only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt or even killed. >> it's absolutely true. i'm amazed at how bold and brazen they are when they know they're being videotaped. nobody seems to care. >> and that you can't trace that car back very easily to the suspects. >> it's only a matter of time. they're going to get caught. dean, we thank you. police in los angeles this morning are looking for whoever is behind that devastating arson attack. we showed you the flames billowing from this construction site last week. the developer of the would-be apartments is no stranger to controversy. danielle nottingham shows us the painstaking look for clues as investigators try to piece together what happened. >> downtown l.a. on fire. >> reporter: the multi-story fire that tore through the da vinci apartment complex last week is now thought to be an
