slaughtered in the country, and but for us who? >> reporter: the president sharply rejected that sentiment at the g-20 summit in turkey. >> that's shameful. that's not american. that's not who we are. we don't add religious tests to our compassion. >> reporter: the new house speaker paul ryan says he's considering legislation that would beef up screening for refugees. the reality is, scott, there's very little a governor could do to keep someone from moving in their state once they've been allowed into the country. >> nancy cordes at the capital.
nancy, thank you. the paris attacks are the third major operation claimed by isis in just over two weeks. a russian jetliner blew up over egypt, killing all 224 on board. u.s. officials say the bomb, a bomb was the likely cause. last thursday twin suicide blasts in beirut killed 43. but after paris, we're in a whole new world according to michael morell, a former number two at the c.i.a. and now cbs news senior security contributor. >> i say "whole new world" for two reasons. one is isis now has developed an attack capability in the west. they told us that they would do that. they've now done it in western europe. they told us that they would do that in the united states. they will eventually do that unless they are degraded. the second whole new world here is the targets they've chosen to attack. people don't sympathize with,
but they certainly understand when isis attacks a government target or a military target or even "charlie hebdo" when somebody has defamed the prophet. people understand that. it's much more difficult to understand an attack on our very way of life that sows fear and terror. >> to that end, isis has posted new threats online and jeff pegues has more on that. [ speaking foreign language ] >> reporter: the video purporting to be from isis promised an attack on washington, but u.s. officials say there is no specific or credible threat against the united states. on capitol hill, police are telling congressional staff to take precautions like using the tunnels around the capitol instead of walking above ground. and in new york, a new specialized police unit is providing extra security at key locations. s.w.a.t. teams and bomb-sniffing dogs are patrolling
train station, airports and nfl stadiums around the country, but a response to a threat is only as good as the intelligence. and u.s. law enforcement believes one blind spot is when terrorists go dark, hiding their online communications. investigators say members of isis lure potential sympathizers to social media apps and forum where is the messages self-destruct or are encrypted. law enforcement has been pressing thetechnology industry for access to that data when national security is at risk, but so far privacy concerns have won out. c.i.a. director john brennan. >> i do hope that this is going to be a wake-up call, particularly in areas of europe where i think there has been a misrepresentation of what the intelligence and security services are doing. >> reporter: brennan warns more attacks like paris could be coming. >> i would anticipate that this is not the only operation that isil has in the pipeline.
>> reporter: the tech industry says calls to weaken encrypted products undermine cyber security. scott, a law enforcement source is confident the attackers used encrypted communication, but it's unclear whether investigators have the attackers' cell phones and computers. >> jeff pegues in washington for us tonight. jeff, thank you. the french air strikes overnight in syria targeted raqqah, which isis claims as the capital of its so-called caliphate. david martin has that. >> reporter: the french chose targets based on sensitive u.s. intelligence that had not been provided to them before the paris attacks. they were military targets, a command center, an ammo dump and training camps, which the u.s. would have hit sooner or later in any event, as charlie d'agata reported from northern iraq. >> this is a show of force for the french and a message france is fighting back. >> reporter: however, u.s. officials say there are plans to hit new targets that had once been off-limits, installations
previously considered part of the civilian infrastructure, isis relies on to run the territory it occupies. until now civilian targets have been limited to the oil facilities isis uses to generate an estimated $1 million a day in black market oil sales. u.s. officials say those strikes have been ineffective, causing damage that could be repaired within a day or two. two weeks ago the u.s. began a bombing campaign designed to knock out oil facilities for six months to a year. last night american a-10s and ac-130 gun ships destroyed 116 tanker trucks in syria after first dropping leaflets and conducting strafing runs to scare the civilian drivers away. more strikes against more targets will increase the risk of civilian casualties, especially since u.s. officials now expect russia to increase its own bombing campaign against isis. scott? >> david martin at the pentagon. david, thank you.
in a story for "60 minutes," we spoke with two survivors of the attacks, mark colclough witnessed the shooting at a cafe, and a man named francois, who did not want us to use his last name, suffered a grazing bullet wound from the music hall massacre. [ gunfire ] >> i heard the gunshots, about ten. he shot in my direction, so i just laid down on the floor, like head on the ground, and then that's how i felt the bullets in my back. >> can you show me where you were hit? >> so i was shot here on the back just below my shoulder, and the bullet came out here. >> so lucky to be alive. >> yeah, yeah. >> he shot three of them just like that.
the three that were sitting outside he shot very quickly. then he shot into the car. then he moved into the cafe, looked right, panned right with his weapon, didn't shoot, panned left, duck, duck, duck, pause, duck, duck, duck, pause. paramedics were there very quickly. they ran into the cafe. >> when you went into the cafe, what did you see? >> wounded. and then toward the bar i could see on our left i could see there were three our four dead bodies lying in front of the bar. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. we've been changing things up with k-y love.
oh yeah. it's a pleasure gel that magnifies both our sensations. it gives us chills in places we've never gotten chills before. yeah, it makes us feel like... dare to feel more with new k-y love. start the interview with a firm handshake. ay,no! don't do that! try head & shoulders instant relief. it cools on contact, and also keeps you 100% flake free. try head & shoulders instant relief. for cooling relief in a snap. and there's moving with move free ultra. it has triple-action support for your joints, cartilage and bones. and unlike the big osteo-bi flex pills, it's all in one tiny pill. move free ultra. get your move on.
here last month. nohemi gonzalez was a student at cal state long beach on a semester abroad. today she was the one thought on the minds of her classmates here during the national moment of silence. they are students of design who crafted a memorial for nohemi gonzalez in the lobby that she raced through on the way to class. the absence of sound deafened the mind. that picture, nohemi under the moon in amsterdam, was shot by her friend cal state student niran jayasiri. >> she was always a very cheerful person. you hardly see her in a bad mood. she always smiled at you even though how late she'd been working. she's just a charismatic person. >> he may have been the last to see nohemi alive, standing next to her at a cafe as a terrorist
opened fire. >> at first i thought it was firecrackers because it sounded like firecrackers. i looked in the direction the noise was coming, and i saw a gunman just walking on the sidewalk, just shooting everywhere. >> and in that moment you thought what? >> run for it. just run for it. >> he ran with a wounded student. they hid until help arrived. jayasiri and ana ramirez met nohemi as freshman four years ago. >> the way i see it is not that we lost her, but we have to just remember what she taught us and that's how she's going to be present with us. i know she's here with us. >> as students of design, they were in the capital of the world. nohemi was raised by a single mom, and she never had been abroad before. she aspired to create products for the home that are easy on the environment, to make the
in turkey today, president obama said his strategy against isis is ultimately going to work. here's margaret brennan. >> reporter: have you underestimated their abities, and will you widen the rules of engagement for u.s. forces to take more aggressive action? >> we haven't underestimated our abilities. this is precisely why we're in iraq as we speak and why we're operating in syria as we speak. 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 that they carry with
them and their willingness to die. >> reporter: the president said sending u.s. ground troops is not an option. >> every few months i go to walter reed and see a 25-year- old kid who is paralyzed or who has lost his limbs, and some of those are people i've ordered into battle, and so i can't afford to play some of the political games that others may. >> reporter: as for critics of his strategy, president obama dismissed them as all talk. for now the president is putting his weight behind a diplomatic gamble to broker a ceasefirein syria. traveling with the president, margaret brennan, cbs news, antalya, turkey. >> final words from paris in a moment.
here in paris, the eiffel tower will be lit in blue, white and red for three nights of mourning. have a look at the red section. that's the motto of paris, "tossed but not sunk," a tribute to the resilience of the city where light always overcomes darkness and where today the most powerful sound was the sound of silence. that's the "overnight news" for this tuesday. for some of you, the news continues. for others, check back with us a little later for the morning news and of course, "cbs this morning." from outside notre dame cathedral in paris, i'm scott pelley.
this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the "overnight news." i'm don dahler. security is tight in the philippines from president obama and the leaders of 20 other nations are gathering for tomorrow's opening of the economic summit. like the g-20 summit that just wrapped up in turkey, this one is expected to be dominated by discussions of the terror attacks in france. president obama addressed reporters before leading ankara. >> the heinous attacks that took place in paris, across the world, in the united states, american flags are at half staff in solidarity with our french allies. we're working closely with our french partners as they pursue their investigations and track down suspects.
france is already a strong counterterrorism partner, and today we're announcing a new agreement. we're streamlining the process by which we share intelligence and operational intelligence with france. this will allow our personnel to pass threat information to our french partners even more quickly and more often, because we need to be doing everything we can to protect against more attacks and protect our citizens. tragically, paris is not alone. we've seen outrageous attacks by isil in beirut, last month in ankara, routinely in iraq. here at the g-20, our nations have sent an unmistakable message, that we are united against this threat. isil is the face of evil.
our goal, as i've said many times, is to degrade and ultimately destroy this barbaric terrorist organization. as i outlined this fall at the united nations, we have a comprehensive strategy using all elements of our power. military, intelligence, economic development, and the strength of our communities. we have always understood that this would be a long-term campaign. there will be setbacks and there will be successes. the terrible events in paris were obviously a terrible and sickening setback. even as we grieve with our french friends, however, we can't lose sight that there has been progress being made. on the military front, our coalition is intensifying our air strikes, more than 8,000 to date. we're taking out isil leaders, commanders, their pillars.
we've seen when we have an effective partner on the ground, isil can and is pushed back. so local forces in iraq backed by coalition air power liberated sinjar. forces are tighting to take back ramadi. >> scott pelley is in paris with the latest on the investigation. >> there is an intense manhunt all over europe this morning for a man named salah abdeslam. the french authorities describe him as the eighth terrorist, an accomplice to the seven killed on friday. four of the bombers were french citizens, so overnight, there were hundreds of searches and arrests all throughout the country. under the state of emergency, which is due to last three months, french police have the right to arrest and search without a warrant. overseas, the french struck quickly.
france launched a series of air strikes against isis targets in raqqah, syria, the self-proclaimed capital of isis. the french hit an isis headquarters and training camp. the arrest of salah abdeslam would be a major break. police say he was the driver of the car that delivered the attackers to the concert hall. [ gunfire ] where 89 people were killed. there is also a dragnet out for his two brothers. french authorities said this morning that they have deported 34 people already, conducted 168 house searches, seizing weapons, computers, and bullet proof vests. in the midst of all of this action, france managed to stop for one minute at noon, in villages and cities. there was a moment of silence for all of those killed and
wounded. a moment to contemplate an uncertain future. it is exactly the way we felt after 9/11. there is a palpable fear that it's not over, that there could be another attack at any moment or on any day. last night i was in notre dame and a rumor spread through the crowd that another attack was under way and people just began to run. so there is a great sense of nervousness about what could happen next, mixed in with this sense of sadness, as well. a sense of uncertainty about what the next days and months would bring. >> president obama's plan to allow 10,000 syrian refugees into the country is coming under attack. one of the paris terrorists reportedly entered europe on a fake syrian passport. several governors say they'll refuse any refugees and senator rand paul is introducing legislation to stop the plan
completely. major garrett reports. >> reporter: political attitudes are hardening against opening america to syrian refugees. republicans were skeptical before paris. now they are almost universally hostile. nevertheless, the white house will press ahead with plans to relocate 10,000 refugees by the end of next year. >> with the respect to refugees, we have the most extensive vetting we've ever had to deal with refugees coming into the united states. >> reporter: ben rhodes, brother of david rhodes, said screening includes the departments of state, homeland security, and the national counterterrorism center. it's a vetting process that can take 12 to 18 months. >> some of these people are people who suffered the horrors of war, women, orphans. >> reporter: as waves of syrians fled the region this summer, organizations urged the u.s. to accept no fewer than 65,000 refugees. the white house figure of 10,000 appeared miserly then, but to
ben carson and marco rubio, it looks reckless now. >> bringing people into this country from that area of the world i think is a huge mistake. >> it's not that we don't want to, we can't. there's no way to background check someone coming from syria. who do you call and do a back ground check on? >> reporter: jeb bush now wants to narrow the focus. >> i think our focus ought to be on the christians who have no place. they've being beheaded and executed by both sides. >> reporter: at the cbs democratic debate, martin o'malley stuck with his support of 65,000 new refugees. >> accommodating 65,000 refugees in our country today, is akin of making room for 6.5 more people in a baseball stadium with 32,000. >> reporter: the congress may attempt to block the refugee

before the terror attacks in paris, the talk in washington was of the new house speaker paul ryan. and his plan to get congress moving. scott pelley sat down with ryan and his family for "60 minutes" in his hometown of janesville, wisconsin. >> have you spoken to the in the >> yeah, a number of times. >> and the substance of those confidences has been what? >> varied on a number of different issues. things that we have to get done by the end of the year, and just courtesy issues. and talk about having teenage daughters, too. >> but you found a man you can work with? >> sure, yeah, look, this is the job, absolutely. he's the president of the united states. >> the job hasn't been getting
done these last several years. >> i agree, but this government does have to work. >> on your first day of speaker, you said you were going to wipe the slate clean. then you said the president has "proven himself untrustworthy on immigration." that's not wiping the slate clean. >> wiping the slate clean is about getting congress to function again. he tried to go around congress. >> when people hear this, they think here we go again, nothing is going to change. >> i think you can walk and chew gun at the same time. you can oppose the president with something you disagree with, but work with other issues that you do agree with. look, if we can find common ground, we can on highways, we will on funding the government, and tax policy, let's go do
that. >> there was a time on capitol hill when the other guy had a bad idea. and now on capitol hill, the other guy is a bad guy. >> i think that's right. >> how do you heal that animosi animosity? it's your job now. >> leadership by example is how i look at it. somewhere in this we got into impugning people's character and motives. we've got to get back to just submitting ideas. and also, we have two years aea one mouth. >> reporter: his mother betty taught him to listen more and speak less. we met her and his wife in a favorite neighborhood restaurant. janet, how did you first hear paul was asked to be the speaker of the house? >> i was in my car in front of the salvation army and the phone rang. he said, well, this is coming our way, and you think i should
say no, right? oh, yeah, you should say no. that's how it started. >> speaker of the house, how do you say no? >> for our family, for the rhythm of our life. for what we saw our path, it just seemed like too much. it seemed like the pressure for him to travel, to be in so many places, to be so much to so many people would leave too little of him for his role as father and husband. >> mr. speaker, how did you get from no to yes? you said hell no. >> i see myself of more of a policymaker than a political leader. i do politics in order to do policy. i came into it no. then i realized the situation in our caucus was fairly dire, and that i sort of had an obligation and a duty to step up and do it. and then the question was, can i redesign the job so i can do it well, so i can be happy and successful. and the fact that we live here
in janesville, we don't live in washington. and our kids are 10, 12 and 13 years old. it's mostly an empty nestor that gets this job, who spends his or her weekend flying around america fund-raising. i'm not going to do that. i'm going to spend my weekends here where i need to be. and so once i learned i could redesign the job, i decided to do it. now i'm doing it, i'm excited about it. >> now it's one of those things i can't imagine that it wouldn't have happened. i'm not saying there aren't moments where you think, wow, how did this happen? how am i on "60 minutes" right now talking about this. but it was -- it just felt right. >> mr. speaker -- >> i go by paul, if that's okay. >> would you prefer that? because people aren't going to call you that. >> i prefer it. they are. >> what adversity in your life has made you the person you are today? >> probably losing my dad when i
was 16. >> what happened? s >> he died of a heart attack. i worked the late shift at mcdonald's the night before. i was going to sleep in, wake up and mow the lawn. my dad's office called asking where he was. i went to find him and he had died in his sleep of a heart attack. >> what did you learn of that? >> i learned tragedy, i learned perseverance and i learned a lot about my mom and my family. >> your father, grandfather and great grandfather all died in their 50s. does that put a fire under you? >> it does. i focus on just being healthy. i don't want this to happen on my kids, to jana, and it does. and life is short, you better make the most of it. >> this is an extremely rare opportunity for a reporter. you don't do interviews.
i wonder why that is. why not >> because i always wanted our family to be a refuge from politics, for people to see us as a family, not as here comes the speaker of the house or here comes that guy that has the vote i don't like. i want to be here as a family here in janesville, a very included, normal, whatever that means, regular family. >> mr. speaker, or paul, if you insist, you don't have a home in washington. >> no, we live here in janesville. >> where do you sleep? >> for about a decade, i've been sleeping on a cot in my office. it's very efficient to me. >> you sleep every night in washington on a cot in your office? >> yeah. i work a lot. all i do is work there. i get up early in the morning, i work out, and work till about 11:00, 11:30 at night. >> where do you get cleaned up? >> in the gym.
i work out every morning, shower in the gym and go on with my day. >> one of the things you said during this period of time that you were telling the republican caucus you didn't want the job is you were concerned the job would open up your children to ridicule. what does that say about politics? >> that's a good point. politics has become a blood sport that goes beyond the name of the person on the pballot. our kids are going to see things that aren't flattering and i wanted to make sure they have a normal life, like we had here in janesville. >> janesville, southern wisconsin, is getting on pretty well, even though the gm plant closed after 90 years. 64,000 people, mostly german and irish. >> we have 67 cousins our last count here in janesville and we all live within eight blocks.
>> his party proposes to deport all illegal immigrants. what is your immigration plan? >> it starts with border enforcement and enforcing the law. but legal immigration is america. >> but a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal -- >> i don't agree with that. i think you can have a pathway to legal status that's what i've proposed is a way to make amends with the law, effectively go on probation, and earn your way to legal status but not to citizenship. >> i take it you don't advocate rounding up 11 million people and deporting them? >> no, i do not. >> you've proposed having two tax brackets, 10% and 25%. >> i like that. our tax code punishes our small businesses. we're sitting here in wisconsin.
overseas, which to us means lake superior, canadians are taxing their businesses at 15%. the top tax rate on small businesses here in america is 44.6%. how can you compete like that? how can working families get asned >> see the full interview with we've been changing things up with k-y love. oh yeah. it's a pleasure gel that magnifies both our sensations. it gives us chills in places we've never gotten chills before. yeah, it makes us feel like...
dare to feel more with new k-y love. you can't breathed. through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather. well, just put on a breathe right strip which instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers. breathe right back seat chefs peer inside your oven. but you've cleaned all baked-on business from meals past with easy-off, so the only thing they see is that beautiful bird. go ahead. let 'em judge.
paris terror attacks were targeted at a rock concert. that's got a lot of bands rescheduling their tours. mark phillips reports. >> well, when one of the prime targets and the most deadly of the terror attacks is a rock concert, the question then becomes what do you do? cancel similar events or continue to stage them in defiance? both happened. u-2 was due to perform in paris over the weekend. instead they canceled and paid their respects. it was a big decision. one of the shows was to be broadcast on hbo. but the band's leader told irish radio sometimes the show cannot go on. >> the cold-blooded state of this slaughter is deeply disturbing, and that's what i can't get out of my head. ♪ i hear your voice >> reporter: in stockholm, madonna did perform and dedicated a song to the victims.
but felt the need to tell her audience why she decided to take the stage. >> i feel torn, like why am i up here dancing and having fun when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones. h however, that is exactly what these people want to do. they want to shut us up. >> reporter: variety reporter elizabeth wagmeister isn't surprised by madonna or bono less' rk shun. >> they've performed in front of thousands of people. they can only imagine being attacked. >> reporter: other rock stars joined the chorus of sympathy. the california band the death tones, added they had been close to being part of the tragedy. some of us were in attendance at the bataclan on this night. the group called off their two performances at the venue this week. the foo fighters, we were
supposed to play in paris tonight, canceled their european tour. ♪ where shows elsewhere did go on, the paris massacre hung over them like a dark cloud. ♪ in new york, the metropolitan opera was led in the french national anthem. and bicycled powered street piano performances have become a feature of the city. this one was here the bataclan concert. the music, john lennon's "imagine." respect, commemoration, caution, defiance. these are the choices. a potentially larger target friday night was a soccer game between france and germany where suicide bombers blew themselves up apparently trying to get in.
there's a food fight raging in california. in and out burgers is suing an internet delivery company called door dash to stop it from delivering its food. in and out says it's just protecting its brand because food might get dropped off cold or late. mireya villarreal has the story. >> reporter: in and out wants you to eat their hamburgers. tony wants you to eat their buggers too but wants his company to deliver them. >> if you think about it, 85% of the restaurants in this country don't deliver. for almost all of these merchants, it's something new to them. >> reporter: in-in-out isn't
biting. they demanded doordash stop delivering their feeds, and accusing them of trademark infringement. >> they're putting so much time and energy into it. >> reporter: another burger seller welcomes the service. megan dwyer says doordash has opened the door for new business. >> we found rather than saying no to incremental sales volume and introducing a whole new set of people to our brand, that we would rather work closely with these third party delivery companies to ensure that people are getting the best product possible. >> reporter: they sent over six months building partnerships with doordash and other
companies, including amazon prime and caviar. but they want quality control, too. >> we want to make sure that the hot bags that they're using are up to specks. >> reporter: unlike restaurants who follow strict guidelines, these new tech driven delivery services are largely unregulated. but that could change. >> we're seeing this more and more with these on demand apps and services that cities are beginning to regulate them. >> reporter: so whether restaurants like it or not, apps like doordash could be a taste of things to come. for cbs "this morning," mireya villarreal, los angeles. and that's the "cbs overnight news" for this tuesday. for some of you, the news continues. for others, check back with us for cbs "this morning." from new york city, i'm don dahler.
