7:04 am
probably about 20 minutes and just about at the beginning of the line now. but this is about as bad as i have seen it. >> my flight got canceled. >> reporter: on sunday a mystery computer glitch created a travel nightmare as passengers were being checked in manually and issued handwritten tickets. >> what are you going to do? i mean, the computers are down. there's nothing we can do. everyone else is in the same situation. >> reporter: at los angeles international, police tweeted a picture of long lines snaking past the southwest desk and warned the public to avoid early. >> there were people sitting down on the floor when we started because they have not moved in hours. >> reporter: the airline took to twitter on sunday to apologize for the problem with some passengers responding, glad i'm not flying southwest today. and others offering their appreciation for the airline's hard work. the airline said about 450 flights were delayed on sunday. passengers were told to arrive at the airport at least two hours early and to print and bring their boarding passes to
7:05 am
the airport to help minimize delays. the computer issues also affected baggage handling. the airline issued a statement saying, while teams work diligently to enhance the performance of our technology, our airport-based employees are working with customers on their individual itineraries. and we apologize for the extra effort and delayed arrival of passengers and their baggage. this technical glitch is the most recent to destruct airline travel in months. >> with the internet, everything's online. it is what it is, i guess. i'm not happy about it, but hopefully they will fix it up. >> reporter: southwest is still not commenting on what caused the technical glitch. but assures us the problem has been fixed and lines are returning to normal. >> arezow in dallas, thank you very much. president obama this morning is defending his administration's failed bid to train syrian rebels to fight against isis. in his "60 minutes" conversation
7:06 am
with steve kroft, he said the u.s. will keep searching for partners on the ground and has doubts that the pentagon is now changing. >> if you were skeptical of the program, train and equip modern syrians, why did you go through the program? >> because part of what we have to do here, steve, is to try different things. because we also have partners on the ground that are invested and interested in seeing some sort of resolution of this problem. >> and they wanted you to do it. >> no, that's not what i said. i think it is important for us to make sure that we explore all the various options that are available. >> i know you don't want to talk about this. >> no, i'm happy to talk about it. >> but i want to talk about this program because it would seem to show, i mean, if you expect 5,000 and you get 5, it shows that somebody some place along the line made some sort of a serious miscalculation. >> steve, let me just say this.
7:07 am
>> it is an embarrassment. >> look, there's no doubt that it did not work. and one of the challenges that i've had throughout this heartbreaking situation inside of syria is that, you'll have people insist that, you know, all you have to do is send in a few truckloads full of arms and people are ready to fight. then when you start a train and equip program and it doesn't work, then people say, well, why didn't it work? or if it had just started three months earlier it would have worked. >> but you said yourself you never believed in this. >> but steve, what i have also said is that surprisingly enough, it turns out that in a situation that is as volatile with as many players as there are inside of syria, there aren't any silver bullets. >> the president also insisted the u.s. won't get involved in the military campaign on the ground.
7:08 am
you'll hear more from the interview in our next hour including the president explaining how he plans to act more freely during his last 15 months in office. the death toll from twin bomb attacks in turkey's capital ankara rose to 97 this morning. the turkish government says isis is the main suspect, but isis has not claimed responsibility for the deadly blast. turkey is a key u.s. allie in the region and the country is looking increasingly unstable ahead of national elections next month. holly williams is in istanbul following the search for suspects. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the turkish government said it is close to identifying one of the suicide bombers. this country's worst terrorist attack in its modern history has left turkey grief-stricken but also angry. hundreds of people were holding a rally for peace when instead two explosions left carnage on a city street. arms and legs were flying up
7:09 am
into the sky, said this man. two of my friends were killed but i survived. the attack followed an upsurge in violence between the turkish government and militants from turkey's kurdish minority. sparked by a suicide bomb that claimed more than 30 lives in july, hundreds of people have been killed on both sides. and the turkish government has launched air strikes on kurdish militant camps. as kurdish politicians try to lay flowers at the scene of the attack yesterday, there was a confrontation with police who said investigators were still working at the site. the turkish prime minister said that kurdish militants and isis were possible suspects. but nobody's claimed responsibility. and many of the mourners believe the turkish government is to blame because they say it stood up unrest ahead of national
7:10 am
elections next month. turkey's arrested around 40 suspected isis militants since the attack. but it's not clear if there's any link to the bombings. just three weeks from an election in which kurdish voters will play a decisive role, the mood here in turkey is tense with many fearing more violence. gayle? >> thank you, holly williams, reporting from istanbul. iran's judiciary says this morning a court has convicted a washington post reporter held for more than a year. jason rezaian was charged with espionage and other crimes. his lawyer says this is injustice and there will be an appeal. martin buren says a connen temptable end to this judicial process leaves iran's senior leaders with an obligation to right this grievous wrong. and donald trump and hillary clinton are the latest in the
7:11 am
lead from the national poll. >> the first democratic party debate of the campaign is tomorrow night. julianna goldman is in washington tracking the democratic race. julianna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. hillary clinton is way ahead of the four other democrats running for president, but the cbs news poll shows that when vice president joe biden is put in the mix, her lead shrinks slightly. in the run-up to the debate, two of clinton's opponent previewed some of their attack lines. >> from day one i opposed the keystone pipeline. >> reporter: democratic presidential candidate senator bernie sanders and former maryland governor martin o'malley zeroed in on hillary clinton's views on foreign policy and attacked her shifts in position. >> secretary clinton's always quick for the military intervention. i believe a no-fly zone right now is not advisable. >> reporter: clinton's 2002 vote for the iraq war and last week's announcement she was breaking with the obama administration
7:12 am
and now opposing the 12-station transpacific trade deal has sanders urging voters to do the math. >> so people have to contrast my consistency and my willingness to stand up to wall street and big corporations. >> reporter: clinton is still fighting back against inquiries into her use of a private e-mail server while secretary of state. in a "60 minutes" interview with steve kroft, president obama said his former secretary of state made a mistake. >> i can tell you that this is not a situation in which america's national security was endangered. >> this administration has prosecuted people for having classified material on their private computers. >> there's no doubt there have been breaches and these are all a matter of degree. we don't get an impression that here there was purposely efforts to hide something or to squirrel away information. >> reporter: vice president joe biden spent the weekend in delaware with family.
7:13 am
he's expected to decide whether to launch a white house bid any day now. >> vice president, everyone wants to know -- >> get out of my way, will ya? >> reporter: cnn says vice president biden can still participate in tuesday's debate. one reporter even tweeted out a picture of the just in case podium, number six, if he shows up at the last minute. anthony, part of the reason he's deciding soon is that florida, new hampshire and texas have filing deadlines that start in november and december. >> julianna, thanks. our new poll shows the two outsider republicans, trump and carson, are well ahead of the rest of the field. texas senator ted cruz is in third place with just 9%. cruz is followed by marco rubio, jeb bush and carly fiorina. but there's new concern that the republican disarray on capitol hill could hurt the party's presidential chances. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with more. >> reporter: congress left town without any resolution on who will hold arguably the most powerful position on capitol
7:14 am
hill. an aide to wisconsin's paul ryan tells me over the weekend he listened to all the calls from people begging him to get into the speaker's race, but that so far he has not changed his mind. >> right now i'm just trying to make it home for dinner. >> reporter: he may have left washington but ryan can't escape the desperate pleas from republicans to lead their fractured party. >> it will be hard for people to confront paul ryan and say he's not a good republican. >> reporter: that's an occupational hazard for the current house speaker who must sometimes compromise with democrats. according to the latest cbs news poll, 23% of republican voters approve of the job john boehner is doing. >> republicans never win. >> reporter: the party's presidential frontrunner was lukewarm on ryan, too, when he sat down with "face the nation's" john dickerson. >> you would be okay with speaker ryan? >> i would be okay. they have a couple people in there, i'm not mentioning names, but there are people in there really tough and really smart. >> reporter: house republicans are also dealing with new accusations that the house
7:15 am
