7:00 am
root cause of this crisis. what is different this time and what gives us some degree of hope is that as i said for the first time all major countries on all side of the syrian conflict agree on a process that is needed to end this war, and so while we are very clear eyed about the very difficult road still ahead, the united states in partnership with our coalition is going to remain relentless on all fronts. military, humanitarian and diplomatic. we have the right strategy and we are going to see it through. with that i will take some questions and i will begin with jerome car thalia of afp. >> thank you mister president. 129 people were killed in paris on friday night.
7:01 am
isil claimed responsibility , sending the message that they could not target civilians -- they could target civilians all over the world. the equation has changed. isn't it time for your strategy to change? >> keep in mind what we have been doing. we have a military strategy that involves putting enormous pressure on isil through i -- airstrikes that has put assistance and training on the ground with rocky forces. we are now working with syrian forces as well to squeeze forces and cut off their supply lines. we have been coordinating internationally to reduce financing capabilities. the oil they are trying to ship outside . we are taking strikes against high-value targets, including most recently against the individual who was on the video
7:02 am
executing civilians who had been captured as well as the head of isil in libya , so it's not just in iraq and syria. and so on the military front, we are continuing to accelerate what we do as we find additional partners on the ground that are effective, we work with them more closely. i have already authorized additional special forces on the ground who will be able to improve the coordination. on the counterterrorism front, keep in mind that since i came into office, we have been worried about these kinds of attacks. the vigilance that the united states government maintains and the cooperation that we are consistently expanding with our european and other partners in going after
7:03 am
every single terrorist network, is robust and constant. every few weeks, i meet with my entire national security team and we go over every single threat stream that is prevent -- presented. where we have information we share it immediately with our counterparts around the world, including our european partners. on aviation security, we have over the last several years been working so that at various airport sites, not just in the united states but overseas, we're strengthening our mechanisms to screen and discover passengers who should not be boarding flights. and improving the matters in which we are screening luggage that is going on board. on the diplomatic front we have been consistently working to try to get all the parties together to recognize that there is a moderate opposition
7:04 am
inside of syria that can form the basis for a transition government. and to reach out not only to our friends, but also to the russians and iranians on the other side of this equation to explain to them that ultimately an organization like isil is the greatest danger to them as well as to us. so there will be an intensification of the strategy that we have put forward, but the strategy that we are putting forward is the strategy that ultimately is going to work. but as i said from the start, it's going to take time. and what's been interesting is, in the aftermath of paris as i listen to those who suggest something else needs to be done , typically the things they suggest need to be done are things we are already doing. the one exception is that there
7:05 am
had been a few who suggested we should put large numbers of us troops on the ground. and keep in mind that, we have the finest military in the world and we have the finest military minds in the world. i have been meeting with them intensively for years now discussing these various options and it is not just my view but the view of my closest military and civilian advisers that that would be a mistake. not because our military could not march into anyplace and temporarily clear out isil but because we went see a repetition of what
7:06 am
we've seen before which is, if you do not have local populations that are committed to inclusive governments and who are pushing back against ideological extremes, that they resurface. unless we are prepared to have a permanent occupation of these countries. let's assume that we were to send 50,000 troops into syria. what happens when there is a terrorist attack generated from yemen? do we then send more troops into their or libya perhaps? or if there is a terrorist network operating anywhere else in north africa, or in southeast asia. so, a strategy has to be one that can be sustained. in the strategy we are pursuing, which focuses on going after targets, lit it --
7:07 am
limiting wherever possible the capabilities of isil on the ground, systematically going after their leadership and infrastructure, strengthening syrian and iraqi forces and kurdish forces prepared to fight them, cutting off their borders, and squeezing the space in which they can operate until ultimately they are able to -- we are able to defeat them, that is the strategy we have to pursue and we will continue to generate more partners for that strategy and there will be things that we try that don't work and some strategies we try that do work. when we find strategies that work we will double down on those. okay. margaret brennan, cbs >> thank you mister president. a more than year-long bombing
7:08 am
campaign in iraq and syria has failed to contain the ambition and the ability of isis to launch attacks in the west. have you underestimated their abilities, and will you widen the rules of engagement for us forces to take more aggressive action? >> no we haven't underestimated our abilities this is precisely why -- their abilities, this is precisely why we are in iraq as we speak and operating in syria as we speak. it is precisely why we have mobilized 65 countries to go after isil. and why i hosted at the united nations an entire discussion of counterterrorism strategies and curbing the flow of foreign fighters. and why we have been putting pressure on those countries that have not been as rebut -- robust as they need to in tracking the flow of foreign fighters in and out of syria and iraq. so there has been
7:09 am
acute awareness on the part of my administration from the start that it is possible for an organization like isil that has such a twisted ideology and has shown such extraordinary brutality and complete disregard for innocent lives, that they would have the capabilities to potentially strike in the west, and because thousands of fighters have flown from the west and our european citizens, a few hundred from the united states but farmar from europe, that when those foreign fighters returned, it posed a significant danger. we have consistently worked with our european partners, disrupting
7:10 am
pods in some cases, sadly this one was not disrupted in time. but understand that one of the challenges we have in this situation is that, if you have a handful of people who don't mind dying, they can kill a lot of people. that's one of the challenges of terrorism. it's not their sophistication or the particular weaponry that they possess, but it is the ideology they carry with them and their willingness to die. in those circumstances, tracking each individual, making sure that we are disrupting and preventing these attacks, is a constant effort at vigilance. it requires extraordinary coordination. part of the reason that it is
7:11 am
important, what we do in iraq and syria, is that the narratives that isil developed of creating this caliphate makes it more attractive to potential recruits. so when i said that we are containing their spread in iraq and syria, in fact they control less territory than they did last year. and the more we shrink that territory, the less they can pretend that they are somehow a functioning state, and the more it becomes apparent that they are simply a network of killers who are brutalizing local paul -- populations. that allows us to reduce the flow of foreign fighters, which then over time will lessen the number of terrorists who can potentially
7:12 am
carry out terrible acts like they did in paris. that is what we did with al qaeda. that doesn't mean by the way that al qaeda no longer possesses the capabilities of potentially strike in the west. al qaeda and the peninsula that operates primarily in minute -- yemen, we know has consistently tried to target the west, and we are consistently working to disrupt those acts, but despite the fact that they have not gotten as much attention as i sell, they still -- as isil, they still pose a danger as well. our goals here consistently have to be, to be aggressive and to be -- to leave no stone unturned, but also recognize that this is not conventional warfare. we play into the isil
7:13 am
narrative when we act as if they are a state. we use routine military tactics that are designed to fight a state that is attacking another state . that is not what is going on here. these are killers. with fantasies of glory, who are savvy when it comes to social media, and are able to infiltrate the minds of not just iraqis or syrians, but disaffected individuals around the world. and when they activate those individuals, those individuals can do a lot of damage. so we have to take the approach of being rigorous on our counterterrorism efforts and consistently improve how we can get information, infiltrate these networks, reduce their
7:14 am
operational space, and even as we also try to shrink the amount of territory that they control to defeat their narrative. ultimately, to reclaim territory from them is going to require an ending of the syrian civil war which is why the diplomatic efforts are so important and it will lay -- require an effective iraqi effort that bridges shia and sunni differences, which is why our diplomatic efforts in iraq are so important as well. >> thank you mister president. in the days and weeks before the attack, did you receive a warning in your daily intelligence briefing that an attack was imminent. if not, did then not call into question
7:15 am
the current assessment that there is no immediate, specific credible threat to the united states today. and secondly if i could ask you to address your critics who say that you are reluctant to enter into the middle east war, and your preference of diplomacy over using the military makes the united states weaker and emboldens our enemies. >> jim, every day we have threat streams coming through the intelligence and as i said, every several weeks we sit down with all of my national security intelligence and military teams to discuss various threats that may be generated. the concerns about potential isolate tax in the west -- isil attacks in the west has been there for over a
7:16 am
year now. they come through periodically. there were no specific mentions of this particular attack that would give us a sense of something that we could provide french authorities for example, or act on ourselves. but typically the way the intelligence works is, there will be a threat stream that is from one source, how reliable is that source? perhaps some signal intelligence gets picked up, it's evaluated, some of it is extraordinarily vague and nonspecific and there is no clear timetable. some of it may be more specific and then folks chase down that threat to see what happens. i am not aware of anything specific in the sense of that
7:17 am
would've given a premonition about a particular action in paris. that would allow for military or law enforcement actions to disrupt it. with respect to the broader issue of my critics, to some degree i answered the question earlier. i think that when you listen to what they actually have to say, what they are proposing, most of the time when pressed they describe things we are already doing. maybe they are not aware that we are already doing them. some of them seem to think that if i were just more bellicose in expressing what we are doing that that would make a difference. because that seems to be the only thing that they are doing,
7:18 am
which is talking as if they are tough but i have not seen particular strategies that would suggest that they would make a real -- that would make a real difference. as i said, the primary exception is those who would deploy us troops on a large scale to retake territory, either in iraq or now in syria. and at least they have their honesty to go ahead and say that's what they would do. i just addressed why i think they are wrong. there have been some who are well-meaning, and i don't doubt there sincerity -- i don't doubt their sincerity when it comes to the issue of the dire humanitarian situation in syria, for example call for a no-fly zone or a safe zone of some sort. this is an example of
7:19 am
the kind of issue where i will sit down with our top military, and intelligence advisers, and we will painstakingly go through , what does something like that look like? typically, after we have gone through a lot of planning and a lot of discussion and really working it through, it is determined that it would be counterproductive to take those steps. in part because isil does not have planes. so, the attacks are on the ground. a true safe zone requires us to set up ground operations. and the bulk of the deaths that occurred in syria for example have come about not because of regime bombing, but because of on the ground casualties. who would come in, who would
7:20 am
come out of that safe zone, how would it work? would it become a magnet for further terrorist attacks, and how many personnel would be required, and how would it end? there is a whole set of questions that have to be answered there. i guess my point is this, jim. my only interest is to end suffering and keep the american people safe. if there is a good idea out there, then we are going to do it. i don't think i have shown hesitation to act, whether with respect to bin laden, or with respect to sending additional troops to afghanistan or keeping them there. if it is determined that it is actually going to work. what i do not do is to take actions, either because it is
7:21 am
going to work politically or it is going to somehow, in the abstract, make america look tough. or make me look tough. and maybe part of the reason is because every few months i go to walter reed. and i see a 25- year-old kid who was paralyzed or has lost his limbs and some of those are people that i have ordered into battle. so i can't afford to play some of the political games that others may. we will do what is required to keep the american people safe. i think it's entirely appropriate in a democracy to have a serious debate about these issues. folks who want to
7:22 am
pop often have opinions about what they think they would do, present a specific plan. if they think that somehow their advisors are better than the chairman of my joint chiefs of staff, and the folks actually on the ground, i want to meet them. we can have that debate. but what i am not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of american leadership or america winning or whatever other slogans they come up with. that has no relationship to what is actually going to work to protect the american people, and to protect people in the region who are getting killed, and to protect our allies and
7:23 am
people like friends. -- france. i am too busy for that. >> thank you very much, mr. president. i want to go back to something he said to margaret when you said you have not underestimated the abilities of vices. this is an organization that you once described as a jv team , that evolved into a force that is now occupied territory in iraq and syria and is now able to use that safe haven to launch attacks in other parts of the world. how is that not underestimating their capabilities, and how is that contained, quite frankly? i think a lot of americans have this frustration that they see the united states has the greatest military in the world, the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on isis -- i guess the question is, and if you'll forgive the language, why can't we take out these bastards? >>jim, i just spent the last
7:24 am
three questions answering that very question. so i don't know what more you want me to add. i think i've described very specifically what our strategy is, and i have described very specifically why we do not pursue some of the other strategies that have been suggested. this is not, as i said, a traditional military opponent. we can retake territory, and as long as we leave our troops there we can hold it. but that does not solve the underlying problem of eliminating the dynamics that are producing these kinds of violent extremist groups. and so we are going to continue to pursue the strategy that has
7:25 am
the best chance of working, even though it does not offer the satisfaction i guess of any headline, -- a meat headline or an immediate resolution. and part of the reason as i said is because there are costs to the other side. i just want to remind people that this is not an abstraction. when we send troops in, those troops get injured. they get killed. they are away from their families. our country spends hundreds of billions of dollars, and so given the fact that their enormous sacrifices -- there are enormous sacrifices involved in any military action, it is best that we don't shoot first and aim leader. it
7:26 am
is important for us to get the strategy right and the strategy that we are pursuing is the right one. ron allen. >> thank you mr. president. i think a lot of people around the world and in america are concerned because, given the strategy that you are pursuing, and it has been more than a year now, isis's capabilities seem to be expanding. were you aware that they had the capability of pulling of the kind of attack they did in paris? are you concerned, and do you think they have that same capability to strike in the united states? and do you think that given all you have learned about isis over the past year or so, and given all the criticism about your us -- underestimating them , do you think they -- do you think you really understand the enemy well enough to defeat them and protect the homeland? >>right so this is another variation on the same question.
7:27 am
let me try it one last time. [laughter] we have been fully aware of the potential capabilities of them carrying out terrorist attacks. that is precisely why we have been mounting a very aggressive strategy to go after them. as i said before, when you are talking about the ability of a handful of people with not wildly sophisticated military equipment, weapons, who are willing to die, they can kill a lot of people. and preventing them from doing so is challenging for every country.
7:28 am
if there was a swift and quick solution to this, i assure you that not just the united states but france, and turkey and others who have been subject to these terrorist attacks would have implemented those strategies. there are certain advantages that the united states has in preventing these kinds of attacks. obviously after 9/11 we hardened the homeland, set up a whole series of additional steps to protect aviation, to apply lessons learned, we have seen much better cooperation between the fbi state governments, local governments, there is some advantages to geography, with respect to the united
7:29 am
states, but having said that -- we have seen the possibility of terrorist attacks on our soil. there was the boston marathon bombers. obviously it did not result in the scale of death that we saw in paris, but that was a serious attempt at killing a lot of people. by two brothers. in a crockpot. -- and a crockpot. it gives you a sense of the challenges that will be involved in this going forward. so again, i sell has -- isil has serious capabilities. but they are not unique. they are capabilities that other terrorist organizations that we track possesses well. we are going after all of them. what is unique about isil is the degree to which it has
7:30 am
been able to control territory that then allows them to attract additional recruits. and the greater effectiveness they have on social media, and their ability to use that to affect not only -- not only attract recruits to fight in syria but also to carry out attacks in the homeland and in europe and other parts of the world. our ability to shrink the space in which they can operate, combined with a resolution of the serious situation, -- syria situation which reduces the freedom we feel with -- with which they can operate and getting local forces who are able to hold and keep them out over the long-term -- that ultimately is what will make a difference. it will take some time but it is not something that at any stage in this process have we not been aware needs to be done. >> okay go ahead.
7:31 am
>> i can hear you. >> thank you so much. my name is name -- in cermak [indiscernible -- low volume] >> we spoke a lot about this at the g20. the overwhelming majority of victims of terrorism over the
7:32 am
last several years and certainly the overwhelming majority of victims of isil are themselves muslim . isil does not represent islam. it is not representative in any way of the attitudes of the overwhelming majority of muslims . this is something that has been emphasized by muslim leaders, whether president erato on, or the president of indonesia or of malaysia, -- countries that are in majority muslim but have shown themselves to be tolerant and to work to be inclusive in their political process. and so to the degree that anyone would equate the terrible acts that took place in paris with the abuse of islam
7:33 am
-- the views of islam, those types of stereo set -- stereotypes are counterproductive. they are wrong. they will lead, i think, to greater recruitment in the terrorist organizations overtime if this becomes somehow defined as a muslim problem, as opposed to a terrorist problem. now, what is also true is that what it -- is that the most vicious terrorist organizations at the moment are ones that claim to be speaking on behalf of true muslims. i do think that muslims around the world, religious leaders, political leaders, ordinary people have to
7:34 am
ask very serious questions about , how did these extremist ideologies take root, even if it is only affecting a very small fraction of the population, it is real. and it is dangerous. and it is built up over time, and with social media is now accelerating. and so i think on the one hand, non-muslims cannot stereotype, but i also think the muslim community has to think about how we make sure that children are not being affected with this twisted that somehow they can kill innocent people, and that is justified by religion. to some degree that is something that has to come from within the muslim community itself. i think there have been times
7:35 am
there has not been enough pushback against extremism -- there are some who say, well, we don't believe in violence, but they are not as willing to challenge some of the extremist thoughts or read -- or rationales for why muslims feel oppressed and those ideas have to be challenged. let me make one last point about this and then unfortunately i have to take a flight to manila. i am looking forward to seeing manila but i hope i can come back to turkey when i am not so busy. one of the places you are seeing this debate play itself out is on the refugee issue. both in europe and, i gather, it started popping up while i was gone back in the united states. the people who are
7:36 am
fleeing syria are -- the most harmed by terrorism. they are the most vulnerable as a cop -- as a consequence of civil war and strife. they are parents. they are children. they are orphans. and they are -- and it is very important -- and i was glad to see this was affirmed again and again by the g20 . that we do not close our hearts to these victims. of such violence. and somehow, start equating the issue of refugees with the issue of terrorism.
7:37 am
in europe, i think people like chancellor merkel have taken a very courageous stance in saying it is our moral obligation as fellow human beings to help people who are in such vulnerable situations. and i know that it is putting enormous strains on the resources of the people of europe. nobody has been carrying a bigger burden than the people here in turkey with 2.5 million refugees, and the people of jordan and lebanon who are also admitting refugees. the fact that they have kept their borders open to these refugees is a signal of their belief in a common humanity. and so we have to, each of us, do our part and the united states has to step up and do its part. and when i hear folks
7:38 am
say, well maybe we should just admit the christians but not the muslims -- when i hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which a person who is fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted. when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that is shameful. that is not american. that is not who we are. we don't have religious tests to our compassion. when pope francis came to visit, the united states, and he gave
7:39 am
a speech before congress, he didn't just become part -- christians being persecuted. he didn't call on catholic parishes to just admit those who were of the same religious faith. he said protect people who were vulnerable. and so i think it is very important for us right now, particularly for those who are in leadership, particularly for those who have a platform and can be heard, not to fall into that trap. not to feed that dark impulse inside of us. i had a lot of disagreements with george w. bush on policy. but i was very proud after 9/11 when he was adamant and clear about the fact that this is not a war on islam.
7:40 am
in the notion that some of those who have taken on leadership in this party would ignore all of that, that's not who we are. on this they should follow his example. it was the right one. it was the right impulse. it's our bitter impulse. and whether you are european -- it's our better impulse. and whether you are european or american -- the values that we are defending and fighting against isil for are precisely that we don't discriminate against people because of their faith. we don't kill people because they are different than us. that is what separates us from them. and we don't feed that kind of
7:41 am
notion. that somehow christians and muslims are at war. if we want to be successful defeating isil, that is a good place to start, by not promoting that kind of ideology or attitude. in the same way that the muslim community has an obligation not to in any way excuse anti-western or anti- christian sentiment, we have the same obligation as christians. and we are -- it is good to remember that the united states does not have a religious test, and we are a nation of many peoples of different faiths, which means we show compassion to everybody. those are the universal values we stand for. that is what might -- my administration intends to
7:42 am
stand for. all right. thank you very much everybody. >> that is obama ending a press conference in turkey talking about american values having to do with refugees. this was a press conference in which the president strongly defended his strategy and talked about the fact that the united states could mayor tell -- militarily defeat isis but it didn't want to have to sustain troops on the ground. he talked about having to prevent isis from becoming a functioning state and he talked about ending the syrian war and also the split between sunni and shia in iraq. he said they had no special specific intelligence about the paris attack and that he did not underestimate the capabilities. our coverage will continue throughout the day on the cbs station. and on air 24-hour digital network. scott kelly in paris will have a complete wrapup on tonight "cbs evening news" near. many of you will now return to cbs news this morning. i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and gayle king.

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it is monday, november 16, 2015. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including president obama defending his strategy after the paris terror attacks, plus presidential candidate jeb bush what he would do. first here is today's "eye opener at 8." >> there were no specific mentions of this particular attack that would give us a sense of something that we could provide french authorities. >> france is at war. the acts committed on friday evening were acts of war. >> i will be meeting president obama and president putin in the
8:01 am
next few days to join forces with them. >> overnight police raided the homes of over 100 suspected terrorists. it's part of an international manhunt for this man. >> people in central paris and people around europe pause to reflect, we have a silence followed by spontaneous applause as people want to show and stand together. [ applause ] >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president obama called the paris terror attacks a sad and sickening setback in the fight against isis. >> he strongly defended his policy at a news conference in turkey.
8:02 am
with him and questioned him at the news conference. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: president obama strongly defended his strategy on how to fight isis and hit back at critics who say that last friday's attacks in paris show an emboldened terror group that was able to launch multiple attacks and completely evade any detection by some of the best intelligence agencies in the world. he said, though, his strategy is the right one and he's prescribing stronger doses of the same medicine. i asked him if he's underestimated isis' abilities. >> a more than year-long bombing campaign in iraq and syria has failed to contain the ambition and the ability of isis to launch attacks in the west. have you underestimated their abilities and will you widen the rules of engagement for u.s. forces to take more aggressive action? >> we haven't underestimated
8:03 am
their abilities. this is precisely why we're in iraq as we speak and why we or operating in syria as we speak. it's precisely why we have mobilized 65 countries to go after isil. there has been an acute awareness on the part of my administration from the start that it is possibility for an organization like isil that has such a twisted ideology and has shown such extraordinary brutality and complete disregard for innocent lives that they would have the capabilities to potentially strike in the west. >> reporter: the president was clearly irritated by so many reporters pressing him on whether his strategy is failing, but the president listed the
8:04 am
many ways he thinks would be wrong to approach this problem. he said he is not considering a safe zone to keep refugees from flooding into europe. he said that would be counterproductive to the fight against ice sis. he said putting ground troops into syria is absolutely off the table and that's not how we're going to respond to terror threats, whether from syria, yemen or anywhere else in the world. he did say he is looking to not only intensify some of the air strikes and some of the special forces he's already authorized in syria and iraq, but he really, norah, described his strategy as staying in place, ramping it up but not changing course. >> that's right, saying we have the right strategy and we're going to see it through. margaret brennan in turkey, thank you. france's parliament said, quote, we will eradicate terrorism. police raided over 150 locations
8:05 am
overnight in france and belgium, a huge raid in belgium targeted the lone remaining suspect. no arrests were made. in syria, french warplanes attacked overnight. elizabeth warren is in paris. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president hollande announced he's going to meet with president obama and also president putin of russia in the copying days to, as he put it, coordinate forces in response to the fight against isis. he also said he hopes -- he identified syria really as the locust, the nexus of this wave of terrorism. he said the paris attacks -- the decision to attack paris had been taken in syria. however, the planning had taken in belgium using french citizens. the mastermind has been identified. he's a young man in his 20s by the name of abdel hamid abaaoud.
8:06 am
he's well known to belgium police. he was suspected of plotting earlier on in the last few years, but has managed to escape to syria where we think he is now and also one suspected terrorist from the paris attacks still on the loose, he is thought to be somewhere in europe. of course, there's a huge manhunt going on now to try and pick him up. charlie? >> elizabeth palmer in paris. presidential hopefuls responding to the attacks in paris. a f. at the cbs candidate debate on saturday. >> we will support those who take the fight to isis, but this cannot be an american fight, although american leadership is essential. >> i would disagree with secretary clinton respectfully on this score, this actually is america's fight. it cannot solely be america's fight. >> i would argue that the disastrous invasion of iraq, something i strongly opposed,
8:07 am
has unraveled the region completely and led to the rise of al qaeda and to isis. >> republicans donald trump, ben carson, ted cruz says the united states should reverse plans to accept 10,000 syrian refugees next year. marco rubio argues for more special operations forces going after isis. jeb bush tweeted, quote, this is our fight. defeating isis requires the strength, unity and resolve that only american leadership can provide. governor bush is with us now from miami. good morning. >> good morning. >> you have said that we should declare war to defeat isis. how should we fight that war and can they do it without ground troops including americans? >> they have declared war on us. we need a strategy to defeat them. we can't co-exist with them. we do have american forces in iraq and in syria, but there's no strategy. a strategy would require american leadership to create a
8:08 am
no-fly zone, safe havens. it's unconscionable to have hundreds of thousands of people being displaced and have no security possibilities in europe and possibly in the united states. we need to include safe zones for them and build an army that will take out isis. >> where would that army come from, governor? >> it would come from the countries in the region, the syrian people themselves. we are supporting the remnants of the syrian free army and we should continue to do so with the support of the arab countries and europe. there needs to be a strategy. we can't just react to each event. this is the tragedy of the obama administration, and it looks as though democratic candidates want to continue this, is just to maintain and contain rather than to defeat. i think that is the wrong approach. >> governor, as you've seen, we've had a year-long strategy of bombing isis. if that strategy is not working, does it mean we need boots on the ground in syria? is that what you would do?
8:09 am
>> first of all, we don't have a strategy. the president has admitted that twice in the last year. bombing is part of it for sure. having air superiority is important. we ought to listen to the commanders and say what is the strategy necessary to defeat isis? i think it would require more boots on the ground, if you will, more troops on the ground, more special operators, more people that are imbedded the iraqi army, for example, more training for the peshmerga forces, more engagement with the sunni tribal leaders. more involvement for sure but in a leadership role. we can lead and when we do, we can be effective. >> if the general said we need 50,000 troops on the ground, would you support that? >> i can't speculate on that. i do think we should have a strategy. the president of the united states should describe what that strategy is to the american people? we should draw people towards that strategy and we should implement it.
8:10 am
today five more terrorists are being released from guantanamo. this is the wrong signal. this is a fight for western civilization. i know the european allies that have been reluctant to be involved will be involved and i think the traditional arab states as well. it requires american leadership, and we don't have it right now. >> do you think this terrorist attack will change your strategy and your campaign? in the past the polls have shown people who don't have -- necessarily have political experience. >> i think when you get closer to the election anyway, having someone who has proven leadership skills both in the private sector and in government is going to matter. the national security questions are going to become more important. i laid out a plan to defeat isis two months ago at the reagan library. it still applies. made more complicated by iran and russia's involvement in syria for sure. but it still applies, and we should do it. >> what about migrants coming into the united states from syria.
8:11 am
should there be some restrictions as some governors and others are suggesting? >> yes, i think there should be. of course there should be. we have to have a reality-based immigration policy for sure. there should be really thorough screening. we should focus on creating safe havens for refugees in syria rather than bringing them all across the united states. i do think there's a special important need to make sure christians from syria are being protected because they're being slaughtered in the country. but for us, who? who would take care of the number of christians that are right now completely displaced? >> let me ask you about president putin. we saw president obama meet with him for half an hour yesterday. the discussion is about having president putin help broker a cease-fire in syria. do you envision a role for him? >> not if he continues to prop up the assad regime.
8:12 am
both the iranians and russian view them as an important ally, a brutal regime that has killed over 200,000 of its citizens. if russia changes its tune and says we want to be part of a coalition to defeat isis and reach a settlement whereas sad leads. that's the problem with our foreign policy right now, it's incredibly reactive, there is no leadership where people follow us. we're reacting to events. >> governor, is this a war against radical islam? >> yes, it is. for the life of me, i have a hard time understanding why people get twisted up in knots to say this is radical islamic terrorism. >> governor jeb bush, thank you. >> thank you. social media is playing an unprecedented role in the wake of the paris attacks. why there's a backlash against facebook's safety check feature. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this portion of

mark zuckerberg responded with this, many people have asked why we turned on safety check for paris but not bombings in beirut. until yesterday our policy was to activate safety check only for natural disasters. we just changed this. >> cbs contributor nicholas thompson is the editor of "the new yorker" magazine's website, newyorker.com. >> does his explanation mick sense to you? why do you think they're getting the backlash? >> the explanation doesn't make sense. they could have activated it one day old are for beirut. in general, it's a very beneficial thing that's quite helpful. it is absolutely true that the technology was just as good the day before. >> what's the answer as to why they did not activate it for beirut? >> because the world was much morale larmd than what's happening in paris, many more facebook engineers that spent time in paris, more executives
8:18 am
probably in paris. that ties in to the general critique of technology companies, they're to elitiseli to western. this is part of a long conversation. >> but the i'm safe button had been used previously for natural disasters. this was a totally new use. don't they receive some credit, while they were slow to activate it, they have now developed an entirely new policy? >> i think they absolutely deserve credit for this, credit for using it in paris. it doesn't make sense to use it during a war. you need to use it at an event where there's a beginning and en end. however, the attack in beirut could have been as easily where you wanted to check and see if your friends are safe. people in lebanon use facebook. the critique isn't if it's a bad
8:19 am
feature, but could you have used it before. >> we've been talking about the dark side of social media. how does it operate and can it be broken? >> it seems as though intelligence officials didn't have the sense of chatter, didn't know this attack was coming. it seems like a lot of that was because so much of the conversation was encrypted. this was clearly a well-thought-out plan with lots of parts. why is that? maybe our sources aren't as good. but it's clear isis and other terrorist groups are getting better and better at using encrypted software. >> what can be done about encryption? >> at the phone level, software level, access level you need better tools. >> nick thompson, thank you so much. iraqi intelligence of fishes say they warned france that isis

8:36 am
left the scene without a new government and everybody supports and everybody is behind, then there is a real risk that the institutions of governments in syria, particularly the military, the security service, the intelligence service, could fall apart and we could end up with a much more unstable situation like we had in libya. >> that is the warning vladimir putin is making. >> exactly. >> let me turn to a point we raised early which is the u.s. policy. you said that somebody has to tell the president it's wrong. >> look him in the eye. >> look him in the eye. who can do that? and how hard is it to say to the president, you are wrong? >> one of the responsibilities of the leaders of the intelligence community, so the director of national intelligence and the director of cia, is to be able to have a good enough relationship with the president to be able to have that conversation. all right? a that is one of their responsibilities. i don't know what they have been telling him. >> what if they don't think he is wrong, mike? >> well, then they, obviously,
8:37 am
not telling him that, right? but look. given what i have seen and given my experience, i would be telling him that. >> you would be saying your strategy is wrong and you should do what? >> that is the policy conversation that has to take place. >> could you help us understand -- i've got a lot of e-mails from friends over the weekend. what does isis want? what do they want? >> it's a great question. and there's an idea out there, right? the conventional wisdom they simply want this caliphate in iraq and syria. no. they want that caliphate worldwide, right? including here in the united states. what does that mean? it means we all live under their -- their very extreme religious rules about how you should conduct your life day-to-day. >> real law and all that? >> we are talking about developing a new strategy. the president is meeting with world leaders and what that strategy should be, whether more boots on the ground or more intelligence whatever it may be. let me ask you about comparisons to al qaeda with osama bin laden, we cut off the head of
8:38 am
the snake as the cia described it, right? he was involved in the planning of the 9/11 attacks. what is the search about al bag datty? is he personally attacking these sleeper cells? >> he's a very hands-on leader. i suspect he is. it's a very hierarchy organization so the leadership matters here a lot. one of the things we learned dealing with al qaeda is that the key way, one of the key ways, probably the most important way to degrade a terrorist organization is to decapitate it and get rid of its leadersh leadership. you do by taking out one or two every week. and not every two or three months. >> should we have people from the cia working on this issue in syria? >> the key way to finding the guys taking them off the battlefield is having the intelligence to know where they
8:39 am
are, at what time. >> infiltrating? >> you need that. >> the administration might say to this that is exactly what we have been doing. >> i don't think we are doing enough of it. i don't think our intelligence is good enough, right? i don't think we are taking enough action. otherwise, we wouldn't be removing a leader once every three or four months, we would be removing two a week. >> you raised the thing about terrorists going dark and essentially using their phones and these encrypted apps to communicate. are they using those not only in belgium and france and perhaps other places but are they using those in syria and iraq to communicate? >> yes, absolutely. >> what do we need to do, mike, to keep ourselves safe? everyone keeps saying you can't live in fear. i don't know how you not live in fear when you see what is going on in the world. >> i think a little bit of fear is a good thing, right? ? it keeps your attention up and keeps you focused. i think too much fear is the terrorists winning. i think one of the responsibilities of a leadership of the countries in the west is to find the right balance there between helping people
8:40 am
understand what the risks are, but not affecting the way they live day-to-day. >> why is intelligence to bad? >> because it's not easy to collect intelligence in a denied area, right? it's not easy to collect intelligence in a war zone. right? we are not -- we are not on the ground in an embassy, right, in the middle of the islamic caliphate. so developing human sources takes a lot of time. i'm absolutely confident it's going to get better. it's already gotten better but it needs to be a lot better. >> what you need to pick off these leaders? >> yes. >> does it mean we might have to give up some of our privacy for security? >> i think we are going to have that debate again and i think it is going to end up with more of a focus on security rather than privacy. >> you have talked about -- this is a game-changer. let's not forget the beirut bombings and downing of a russian airplane and now paris. their reach is global. >> we are at a new place that we haven't been before, right? from two perspectives.

super bug in fact, and and leading to longer hospital stays and even death. holly, good morning. a global health crisis. what are some of the misconceptions that this survey points out? >> this is a very large survey done. almost 10,000 people were interviewed. some of the most common myths still exist in huge numbers. about 64% of people who were surveyed believed that antibiotics cured the common cold and flu. which, in fact, they don't. both of those illnesses are viruses and antibiotics have no effect against them. >> wow. >> another very common misconception was that if you start to feel better, that's when you stop taking your antibiotics rather than completing the full course. so if someone starts to feel better on day two or three, they may not go for seven days. that does two things. it increases the risk that your infection isn't properly cleared. you know how sometimes people will say my infection came back. it was never actually gone in
8:47 am
the first place. but the bigger global issue is that that causes the emergence of superbugs. these are bacteria which are resistant to all antibiotics. >> there is a misunderstanding about bugs resistant to drugs. what is has? >> about two-thirds of the people interviewed believed that antibiotic is when your body bx resistant to the antibiotics. it's the bacteria that becomes resistant. bacteria are very smart. if they have been exposed to antibiotics on a regular basis they evolve and grow in ways the antibiotics can no longer kill them and why superbug infections are so deadly. you become infected and nothing on the market can treat it. >> are they contagious? >> they can be. they can be passed to person-to-person and more common settings is staph skin infection and spreading in dorm rooms and locker room rooms or in
8:48 am
hospitals. >> what do you want us to do with this information? i know people grab a z-pack at the slightest little thing. >> think the world health official wants to broaden our understanding of this. they are trying to hold back on the antibicycles botics. they are used in livestock and it helps the livestock to grow faster and better and keeps them health care in industrial ago agricultural segments. last month, governor jerry brown in california passed a legislation limit being the use in animals and all of those steps should help. >> as a physician to clear up some of those misconceptions for people, the common cold or flu is not cured by antibiotics? >> absolutely not. >> when you get an antibiotic, take it all the way to the end?
8:49 am
>> that's it. that's it. even if you feel better on the first day, complete the entire course. don't share your antibiotics. don't take any leftover antibiotics if you find them in the cabinet. also the biggest thing is we should try not to get sick. get your vaccinations and wash your hands. >> get your flu shots. >> spread the word. thank you, holly. >> thank you. you are watching "cbs this morning." we will be right back. ♪
