7:11 am

7:12 am
replace the bad news. >> who's giving her advice to stay silent and why is she staying silent. >> reporter: well, the reason you stay silent in this case is that the thinking is that the story, once you get into a transparency fight you can neveren transparent enough. so the story perhaps goes away. and you know, the press moves on because it has a white hott interest in stories and gets a new fascination and also by the way, there's no a campaign even though they're preparing for one, there's not a campaign structure. unless she, or if she did a sit-down interviewer you'd need a campaign structure behind it to field the stories that would then grow out of that. >> senator schumer says this is going to be a hiccup as time goes on. do you think that's true? >> reporter: well if a campaign is launched and has a message, and the campaign begins then perhaps that's true. i think the fact there's investigators out there and now you have democrats saying that
7:13 am
there are legitimate questions being raised it does give this the chance to live on. and then we never know what's in those actual e-mails once those get out. then everybody will be reacting to the actual content. >> you were in iowa. jeb bush was also in iowa. how did he do? >> well it was his first trip to iowa. he made it clear he'd been there before. he was well-received. he's got some skepticism among conservatives in iowa but from that first visit, it looks like he's going to play heavily in iowa, and that's -- that's interesting and we'll see him go back to the state a lot more. >> thank you, john dickerson. the chairman of the joint chiefs will visit iraq this morning. general martin dempsey was aboard a french air carrier in the persian gulf. holly williams with some of the problems iraq faces trying to fise isis. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, as the battle for the city of tikrit enters its second week
7:14 am
general dempsey warned against sending more american troops to iraq. now, there are already more than 2,500 u.s. military advisers and trainers in iraq but general dempsey said they're work is hindered because some iraqi units don't show up. or arrive without proper equipment. iraqi forces have managed to cut off supplies to isis fighters inside tikrit, according to iraq's military. this is the biggest ground offensive against isis since the militant s militants came across iraq last year. officials here say nearly 30,000 men are trying to encircle tikrit a patched together army of government soldiers local tribesmen and shiite muslim militias. general dempsey's visit to the french aircraft carrier seen here yesterday alongside the "uss carl vinson" comes amidst
7:15 am
fears in the u.s. about iran's rising influence here in iraq. these images show an iranian general who's reportedly commanding at least some of the iraqi forces around tikrit. though iran claims its troops here are only military advisers. the u.s. military is playing no direct role in the battle for tikrit, but if iraqi forces can retake the city it will secure a supply route north opening the door to eastern bigven bigger operations including the recapture of mosul, iraq's section largest city with the extremists seized in june. general dempsey called for stra strategic patience adding air strikes would risk many for civilian casualties apart from the human costs would play into the hand of isis and its

8:01 am
you can have a clean launch. at the battle enters its second weeker they are warned against sending more american troops to iraq. >> this is a big change in the world of consumer electronics. we're talking about devices that have been to be pleasing. >> they have a gold one that could be several thousand dollars. >> thousands turned out to remember those events that changed the power balance of the american south. >> the 50th anniversary of the first selma march that led to the voting rights act. but voting rights in this country, much like john travolta's hair, are still very much a work in progress. >> today's eye opener at 8 is presented by. i'm charlie rose. a university of oklahoma fraternity is suspended after a

video surfaced of a racist song. the clip showed members of the fraternity singing lyrics laced with inappropriate language. >> there's even a reference in the lyrics to lynching. the national organization suspended all members of the oklahoma chapter. the university's president calls this video reprehensible. marchers in selma, alabama set out to reenact a march to the state capital of montgomery. president obama joined thousands of marchers over the weekend. it was the 50th anniversary of bloody sunday. the president was asked if he feels any personal ties to selma's history. at the time the young barack obama lived with his white mother and her parents. >> was it hard for you to connect with this given that your own upbringing was removed from theirs? >> it was interesting, i was 4
8:03 am
years old when it was happening. i was in hawaii so it wasn't something that touched on me direct directly. on the other hand, when this was happening at the age of 4, it was still the law in many parts of the south that the union between my mother and father would have been illegal. as i got older, my mother who was just a wonderful woman and was so inspired by this, she made sure i knew about freedom summer. she made sure i knew about the march of selma. she made sure i knew the songs of the movement. she'd bring home jackson records. that all became part of the backdrop for me growing up despite the fact that i was thousands of miles away.

8:05 am
worth. $100,000 euro is a ridiculously small sum even for one letter. >> reporter: the items were taken in 1997, but their disappearance was not made public until sunday. a spokesman would not say why it took 20 years to disclose the theft, but professor ken pennington believes it may have been an attempt to discreetly have the stolen documents returned. >> the vatican was perhaps very cautious about not making it known so that the people who stole the letters would feel secure about returning them. >> in 2011 "60 minutes" got a look at a rare writing being restored, where the treasures are kept under the tightest of security. this isn't the first time rare works have been stole frn the
8:06 am
vatican. in 1995 an ohio state university professor was convicted of stealing pages from a manuscript. he was caught after he tried to sell them to an art dealer. whoever is responsible for the michaelangelo theft has no choice but to make a deal with the vatican. >> it would be almost impossible except by ransoming the letters to make a profit. >> reporter: vatican officials say there's no question of any deal being done and vatican police are investigating. the rest of the church will be praying that the thief shows signs of remorse. >> i think that would be a good way to go. just return the letters and say you can pick them up over on j street near the vatican. >> how wild is that? the ransom submitted 18 years later. >> and who has them. >> and how they think they are going to get away with it. more to come on that one for

(scal): good day, m'lady! i am sir-can-a-lot, here to save you from another breakfast bore. wake up those eggs with glorious spam! see what spam can! do... at ♪ in our morning in our morning rounds rgs there's new thinking on psychiatry. 1 in 5 american adults lives with mental illness. it's an area that used to be overlook verlooked, but that is changing. dr. lieberman is the author of a new book called "shrinks."
8:13 am
he's chairman of psychiatry at columbia university. good to see you. you said there's still a stigma with mental illness and that's something we need to change and rethink. >> it's been historically the fact and even though we have made tremendous scientific progress in the last 50 years, the old adage still prevails and that was a motivation for writing this book. the fact of the matter is that after 30 years of researching mental illness, treating patients, i became so upset that people, millions of people continue to suffer from the symptoms of mental illness because either they are ashamed and embarrassed to reach out for treatment and don't know how to find it. it's like we have a population of people who are suffering from infectious diseases tb pneumonia, strep aids and we're not using antibiotics, we're not
8:14 am
using vaccines. it's due to lack of awareness and prejudice. >> it can be treated and treated effectively. >> it absolutely can. in all candor though it's recent development up until the 1950s if you had a mental disorder, there was little that any doctor could do to alleviate your symptoms, but that's all changed. we have effective treatments whether it's medication psychotherapy, neuromodulation. >> is there concern or too much concern in your estimation about overtreatment? 248 million prescriptions a year for antidepressants. >> medication to treat childhood behavioral disturbances but do we overdescribe antibiotics, probably. so this isn't a problem with the science. it's a problem with the clinical practices, which we have to contain.
8:15 am
better diagnosis, more rigorous application of therapies. >> there can be more diagnosis but less prescription. >> or less diagnosis. the population frequency of a disorder can be determined very precisely. so people who have the disorder who have symptoms that are distressing and want treatment should be treated. those that don't or don't have a disorder, shouldn't. >> how do you make that determination? >> it's made the same way your doctor determines whether you need a cardiac stint. >> and how is that? >> it's made by a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation a discussion with what the diagnosis is and what the treatment options are and selecting a treatment. the difference, which i think you're getting at is in psychiatry diagnosis is a little different. when you get a stint, you get an ekg and have your blood pressure checked. we don't have that yet in psychiatry. it's all clinical. that's going to change, but it
8:16 am
hasn't changed yet. >> how are you going to get people to talk about it freely? who is going to say i'm having truble coping, i'm having panic attacks. how are people going to get to the point where they krcan say that comfortably and not feel judged? >> that's the dilemma. people say it to their family members and their friends all the time but they don't equate that with the disorder that may need to be professionally helped and how do they get to that person. but if i can say one more thing related to it the aversion that our society has had towards mental illness and the stigma that's perpetuated is symbolized with what's having with the military and the psychological wounds of war. these have been historically denied and they are hugely prevalent. we should be all over this just like we should be all over the treatment of mental illness. >> thank you very much. some of the world's smartest

later his daughter caroline is ambassador here at a critical time. so we spent time with her all day today and the last couple of days. she's almost greeted like a head of state here in japan. incredibly popular. >> and how is she doing, norah? from everything i hear she really likes the job very much. >> she does. i mean this is i would say, the most comfortable i've ever seen
8:34 am
her, you know really in a job that suits her skills her diplomacy. she's working very closely with the conservative do, that they could boost japan's gdp. >> so -- >> go ahead. >> norah on a slightly different note we have been enjoying the pictures of food.
8:35 am
the dining looks tremendous. >> reporter: it is. today i had mountain yam which was delicious with soba noodles and some tempora, which was excellent. the only complaint i have about the food is the bacon here is pa shoe doe thin. it's so thin and everyone eats salad for breakfast. it's no wonder people here are so healthy. after lunch i'm wishing for a hamburger. it's an incredible vichlt i've learned not only a lot about the japan culturally and the economy and how caroline is changing things. there's a huge symposium later this month, bill clinton will be here and michelle obama. we'll have more of that in our "60 minutes" piece. >> have fun. >> thank you. take care, kbies. miss you. >> miss you too. you can look at that story in a

future edition of "60 minutes" which airs right here on cbs. >> sheryl sandberg's book called "lean in" is sparking new interest getting men to support gender equality. they're posting pictures of the men and women who inspire them. it's all under the hashtag hashtag #leanintogether. she's editor of the new issue of "cosmopolitan." joann cole you're an editor in cheer -- what are you? >> editor in chief. >> also known as editor in chief. she joins us at the table. we all understand the women pork of it. why is it important to include men? why did it happen? >> i think it's generational that you're seeing a whole none generation of young men who in this economy understand that their wives or girlfriends are also working, that it's not fair to also pick up all the
8:37 am
housework. and interestingly and of course we love that at cosmo and i see the gentlemen's faces leaning in here, too, actually couples who share housework have more sex. if that isn't a good ad for leaning in together, i don't know what is. >> i'm lean -- i'm happy to lean way, way in here. >> do they have to be convinced? >> no, not at all. >> not at all with that information, right? i think also what's happening in this economy is comes understand they have to pass the baton back and forth. it's better for everybody. it's better for kids to see the family pulling together and creating this, cooking together cleaning up together the woman can't be expected to do this anymore. but i do think it's generational and what lean in has done is got a up the of celebs actors hugh jackman, beyonce. >> generational. there's also warren buffett. he's not spending much time on
8:38 am
social media but he did come to the table for this very keen on promoting women, getting women further up the leadership chain, which is really what the book "lean in" was all about when it launches. ed, pointing out in the research that there are not enough women in the senior jobs and now it's become a move mbl and now we've got to men to the table too. >> which fits perfectly with what norah was saying with ergonomics. are there some places more than others? >> it's interesting. we saw germany who is going to make it mandatory to have 30% of women on board. >> on boards of directors, right? >> yes. on boards of directors, thank you. so clearly there are countries stepping up and making it mandatory. i think the state is trying to mack this much more voluntary. >> i mean i think the campaign message is very strong. but the practicality of it do you see this actually happening? >> i think it's happening because people are suddenly
8:39 am
aware of it. 50% of college intake is women now. that's been the case for sort of the last 20, 30 years, women creeping up but yet it's not reflected in leadership. it's not reflected this government it's not reflect in the top manlts of companies. >> why is that joanna? >> the wired, weird thing is when you look at it, companies with that do better. i think it's partly education, that that's what people are beginning to understand in a difficult economy which we've all seen over the last
