tv CBS This Morning CBS November 17, 2015 7:00am-9:01am PST
through the weekend. today's the beginning of a gradual warming trend. we'll top off the in the 70s tomorrow through saturday. captions by: caption colorado email@example.com good morning to our viewers in the west. it is tuesday, november 17th, 2015. welcome to "cbs this morning." breaking news, russia shah confirms a terrorist bomb brought down a passenger jet in egypt. it vows revenge. dozens of new raids in the search for suspects in the terror attack in paris. we begin with a look at today's "eye opener." your world in 90 seconds.
it's first time russian officials say a bomb brought down the metrojet flight last month. >> today russia attacked islamic state's capital in syria. >> the french interior minister says authorities have carried out 128 new security raids. >> and the international manhunt still under way for the alleged eighth attacker. >> jets have carried out a second wave of air strikes in syria. >> i don't think i've ever seen one like this. >> a dozen twisters were reported in the texas panhandle. around denver, blizzard conditions. >> is this a trojan horse? >> the syrian refugee crisis, a major issue on the republican campaign trail. >> we bring to this country tens of thousands of syrian refugees. that's nothing short of lunacy. >> protestors with black lives matter shut down i-94 in minneapolis in response to a police shooting. >> president obama is in manila
for the apec summit. >> the focus is trade and maritime security. >> disturbing video out of oakland, dozens of people attacking a police cruiser. the officer escaped uninjured. >> all that. >> touchdown! >> what an unbelievable win. >> and all of that matters. >> paris is a city that so many people associate with love. >> our thoughts are with the people of paris, france. >> on "cbs this morning." >> france gave america our enduring symbol of freedom. today, in a tribute of its mother country, lady liberty offered isis a fitting gesture. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this
morning," nearly three weeks after a russian plane went down in egypt, moscow has confirmed it was an act of terror. all 224 people died when the chatter plane broke apart in midair. this morning investigators say they found traces of explosives in the debris. isis claimed responsibility for the attack. >> the plane went down over the sinai peninsula. two airport workers are being held who may have helped plant the bomb. >> reporter: russian security services have said they now have the evidence to confirm what was always the prime suspicion, that the russian metrojet crash in the sinai was caused by a bomb. the fact that the wreckage from the plane was spread over such a large area had always indicated that the plane had broken up at altitude. but the question was whether that was due to an explosion or to structural failure, a much less likely cause. now the head of the main russian security agency, the fsb, has
told vladimir putin that tests on the wreckage proved that a homemade explosive device, as he described it, blew the plane up. the continuing suspicion is that the bomb was placed on board at sharm el sheikh, a lapse in security the egyptians have resisted admitting to. responsibility for the crash and the deaths of the 224 people on board has long been claimed by the so-called islamic state, saying it was retaliating for the russian air campaign against them. vladimir putin has vowed to punish them. war planes and missiles are hitting more isis targets in syria this morning. a pentagon official tells our david martin that russia carried out a number of strikes on the isis stronghold of raqqah. it's unclear if those attacks were in response to the confirmation that a bomb destroyed that russian airliner. those russian attacks are hitting the same city where
french war planes dropped bombs overnight. police in germany this morning arrested five people including one who may be tied to the paris attacks. france's government has mobilized 115,000 police officers and troops to protect the public. elizabeth palmer is in paris, where america's top diplomat is promising to help the french. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. it's still a tense situation here. people are nervous. but what you just mentioned, the news from the interior ministry, that there are 115,000 not only police but soldiers deployed across the country to keep people safe has gone some way to reassuring them. here in paris, secretary of state john kerry met with french president françois hollande to extend condolences and discuss
how the countries could coordinate their response. he says isis demands a tougher response. >> everybody understands that with lebanon's attacks, with what's happened in egypt, with turkey, with the attacks now in paris, we have to step up our efforts to hit them any core, where they're planning these things. >> reporter: france has already hit isis in its capital raqqah, with the biggest french bombing raid yet over the weekend, and even more air strikes last night. the french military says the latest targets include a command post and a training camp. meanwhile, the manhunt for the terrorist suspect who got away, salah abdeslam, grows. at the top of the wanted list,
abdelhamid abaaoud. we've had confirmation that french president hollande will go to washington in the coming days. that will mark the beginning of a much-expanded intelligence sharing operation that everybody hopes will prevent more attacks. >> elizabeth palmer in paris, thank you so much. the intense search for salah abdeslam continues in brussels, belgi belgium. allen pizzey is live there with more. >> reporter: good morning. more than 400 belgian citizens are known to have gone to syria to fight for isis. at least 30 of them came from this suburb. a series of raids here by belgian police turned out to be
futile. the main suspect is still at large. salah abdeslam is described as dangerous and belgium has issued an international warrant for his arrest. he's believed to have rented a black volkswagen polo found near the bataclan concert venue. one of his brothers blew himself up with a suicide vest in the paris attacks. a third brother, mohammed, said his family could not understand why they did it. >> translator: we are indeed thinking of the families of the victims. but you must also understand we have a mother, we have a family, and he is still her son. >> reporter: french investigators believe this man, abdul hamid abaaoud, masterminded the paris attacks. abaaoud grew up here in molenbeek, a suburb in belgium.
belgi belgium's foreign minister called for better cooperation among security agencies. >> we have to block terrorist activities before a terrorist attack. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence officials say the master mind behind the attacks is the chief isis operative for europe. he's believed to be in syria, where four of the plotters are also thought to have gone, gayle. >> thank you very much, allen pizzey in belgium. isis has released new video threatening attacks inside the u.s. it shows an isis fighter saying, we swear we will strike america at its center, in washington. police there have increased security patrols but federal officials say they have not seen a direct isis threat to the united states. defense secretary ash carter talked about the isis threat monday in washington, saying the attacks did not surprise him. >> i wouldn't say anything that
happened over the last few days was surprising to me. it shouldn't be surprising to anyone. this is an enemy that needs to be defeated. we need capable and motivated local forces who can keep the place running without extremism after isil has been defeated. they're hard to come by in syria and iraq, but they do exist. >> our khali -- charlie d'agata has more. >> reporter: good morning. last night we spent the night with a squad going after suspects for one of the worst isis atrocities this country has seen. we met a general and his men at a secret location south of kirkuk. he told us they were after four isis suspects, a sleeper cell lying low among the local population, plotting terror
attacks in iraq. down a muddy road they nabbed the first one. he didn't put up any resistance. but in the back of the truck, it's starting to sink in. the targets, men suspected of taking part in the massacre of as many as 1700 army recruits when isis overran a military base in tikrit last year, lined up by the hundreds, shot dead in shallow gravest. the general said the men they were after were among those who pulled the trigger. the next location was a warehouse where they hoped to find three other suspects. they only found one. he too is blindfolded and taken away for interrogation. two more men from the suspected terror cell are at large. now they know their cohorts have been taken in. the general told us, because they hide in plain sight and strike civilian areas, the
suspects he and his men go after every week pose more of a threat than the isis militants his forces face on the front lines, charlie. >> charlie d'agata, thank you so much. >> incredible reporting he's been doing there. >> good to see people on top of it. scary but comforting at the same time. >> agreed. president bomb said obama s turkey on monday that america's program of air strikes are % enough. >> reporter: will you widen the rules of engagement for u.s. forces to take more aggressive action? >> no. 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. >> michael hayden is with us from chicago. the retired general is now with the chertoff group, a global risk management firm. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> with your experience and your knowledge, if you had to have i seen the president this morning, having learned what he said yesterday, what would you tell him? >> i would tell him, charlie, that what we're doing right now in syria and iraq against isis is underresourced and overregulated. we need to commit more to the fight. and we need to loosen our rules of engagement. charlie, a classic case in point, about 36 hours ago, american air power destroyed over a hundred tanker trucks in syria that were being used to literally fuel the treasury of the islamic state. we could have done that on thursday. we only decided to do it on sunday. i think there are a whole host of decisions like that that if
we loosen the rules of engagement, we can actually more strongly take the fight to the islamic state. >> how do you defeat people who don't mind killing themselves and dying in the process? >> right. well, look. number one, you reduce their capabilities, make them less able to do that. there's another element here that we really haven't seen before. this is a fight why the ideological struggle, their motivation, is tightly tied to their success on the battlefield. these guys are claiming they're enacting the will of god and they're the hand of god. the more they're successful, the more they look inevitable, the more they motivate the kind of people you just described. so if we can break this narrative, we actually begin to break their ideological foundation. >> you heard, general, the president yesterday saying no u.s. ground troops. that was the view of his closest military advisors, that that would be a mistake. you have said air strikes alone
won't do the job. who should be our ground partner? >> ideally our ground partner would come from the local area. we've had some success with the kurds, but as you know, the kurds are kind of self-limiting. they've been powerful in and near kurdish areas, but for them to go much further into arab lands, their usefulness begins to reduce. we need arab allies on the ground, stiffened, assisted, and abled by a larger american footprint. but no one is calling for american units to enter the deserts of syria. >> do you believe they have the capability to attack washington and new york? >> i wouldn't rule it out, charlie. i don't mean to split hairs on you, but we're a tougher target. we're a tougher target because we're more distant. we're a tougher target because our demographics are different. we're a tougher target because we're actually pretty good at this. and we're a tougher target
because culturally we've assimilated far better than the french and other europeans have. but i don't know that we have to do anything dramatically different. >> john bremmer suggested we need to stop hand wringing over spying by the nsa. >> suddenly that stack of metadata doesn't look like the scariest thing in the room. >> so you're agreeing with john brennan? >> absolutely. and also that our intelligence capacities have been badly hurt by the unauthorized disclosure of legitimate american secrets over the past two and a half years. >> general michael hayden, we thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. ahead, we'll take a closer look at how isis may be using tools created in silicon valley. plus how the tech industry may now be in the crosshairs of u.s. intelligence agencies. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." more than 30 million americans are facing a powerful
storm system that stretches from the plains to the midwest. it fueled tornadoes in kansas and texas last night. heavy snow is making the morning commute dangerous. david begnaud is in castle rock, which is under a blizzard warning. >> reporter: good morning. the last time there was a blizzard warning in the denver area was six years ago. 60-mile-per-hour winds where we are right now in castle rock, just south of denver. the snow blowing sideways at this point. 3 to 4 inches at this point. by the time it's over, it could be 2 feet. it's cold, blusteryblustery, an whiteout conditions. massive tornadoes, violent storms, and blinding snow are lashing parts of the u.s. this morning, as a dangerous mix of severe weather intense nice. -- intensifies.
warning sirens as tornadoes ripped through kansas, leaving this family terrified. >> very scared. >> numb would be a good word for it. >> reporter: five tornadoes were reported in texas. the severe storms churned out lightning strikes, leaving 6,000 people without power. the system is fueling winter storm warnings in new mexico, and 60-mile-per-hour winds in colorado, which could see up to 18 inches of snowfall today. here's the good news. meteorologists say as fast as this system is moving in, it's moving out. people could see sunshine in this area by 3:00. bad news, word of a 100-car pileup just south of where we are now. >> interstate 94 is open in minneapolis after demonstrators last night blocked the freeway
over the police shooting of a black man. protestors walked onto the interstate and blocked traffic following the shooting on sunday. he was taken off life-support monday. the mayor of minneapolis has called for a federal investigation. he received the most expensive face transplant in history. ahead, the groundbreaking surgery that's giving a badly burned firefighter a

happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta.

loans, he allegedly violated recruitment practices. it will forgive $102 million in loans. in a settlement with the justice department, it will pay more than $95 million. >> the "wall street journal" reports on a call for laboratory developed tests. those tests are designed and used within a single lab. the fda says the test quote may have caused or have caused harm to patients by producing incorrect results. congress is considering whether to limit fda oversight of the labs. the syracuse post-standard reports a judge won't block new york state from closing down two fantasy sports operators. new york's attorney general says the games offered by draft kings and fanduel amount to illegal gambling t. companies say they offer games after skill fought chance. both sides are active. the paris attacks are offering debates. the intelligence community says new encryption technologies may
have helped the attackers hide their plan, edward snowden's nsa leaks are being blamed for attackers were using some form of encrypted communication. almost four days after paris came under siege, cia director john brennan says terrorists have found new ways to plan major attacks undetected. >> in the past several years, the unauthorized disclosure, there have been policy, legal and other actions that are taken that make our ability collectively, internationally, to find has to terrorists much
more challenging. >> without naming name, brennan appeared to blame edward snowden, a former nsa contractor, who exposed top secret details about the agency's phone and internet under surveillance program. >> as a result of his disclosure the communication companies are less cooperative with the u.s. intelligence and law enforcement. in fact, they are taking direct steps to challenge law enforcement and intelligence community under surveillance activities. >> reporter: but now, brennan and others suggest potential terrorists are using encrypted messaging apps to avoid protection. >> i think silicon valley has to take a look at their products because if you create a product that allows evil monsters to communicate in this way, that's a big problem. >> this shows the absolute need to have top under surveillance, stop criticizing the nsa. >> reporter: glen greenwald that first published the documents said before the leaks,
terrorists were able to keep their conversations to carry out the attack, including the suicide attacks in central london t. 2008 siege in mumbai and the april, 2013 bombings at the boston marathon. he says officials are trying to exploit the paris attacks to justify increased under surveillance. >> don't you think after the type of bloodshed that we saw in paris, law enforcement should have the tools that they need to stop attacks like that? >> law enforcement has had every single fool that they have asked for since september 11th. the problem is that those agencies collect so much information that they have no idea what they're actually in possession of. they have collected so much, they weren't able to connect the dots. >> reporter: the technology industry has been a road block on this issue for law enforcement, but the government keeps pressing the industry to
share data when national security is at risk, but so far, gayle, privacy concerns have won out. >> thank you, jeff. one apparently sfluk into france through greece. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the politics. >> reporter: good morning, all house members will be briefed on that threat today by the director of the fbi and the secretary of homeland security. and a serious partisan divide is emerging on capitol hill and in state houses across the country about those refugees who are set to come here. >> we want to keep mississippi out of that war here on the homefront. >> mississippi's phil bryant is one of at least 22 governors. mostly republicans, who say they'll do what they can to keep syrian refugees out of their states. denying them services usually
offered to refugees. >> if there is even the slightest risk that the people who are come income from syria are not the types of people that we would want them to be, then we can't take that chance. >> reporter: the move drew criticism from some critvernors like vermillion's peter shumlin. >> and i think the governors who are taking those actions are standing, stomping on the qualities that make america great. it's dividing lawmakers on capitol hill, too. arizona senator john mccain an other republicans said the refugees should not be allowed in. at least for now. >> we have to have a pause until we are absolutely sure that anybody that comes to this country as a reasonable has to be properly screened. >> reporter: here's how the screening process works. first, the state department collects biographical information on the applicant. the department of homeland security the national counterterrorism center and the pentagon then review it.

the french government says 100,000 troops are protecting french citizens. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry is here in paris today, he's been meeting with the french president who's offered his don condolences on behalf of the american people. also beginning talks on how the two countries can prevent further attacks by the so-called islamic states. u.s. intelligence confirms that this man hunt is currently in syria. shortly after secretary of state john kerry was in syria, he spoke with cbs managing editor scott kelly. >> is it worth it to put troops on the ground now to protect to
the united states? >> as you know, president obama approved a while ago to put forces on the ground to augustmeaugment the ability of syria to do the job. as we know there are fighters that have come from many countries in the world, ours included who have gone to syria. so the challenge of foreign fighters returning to their homes is one we have been focused on for a year or so. it's a big challenge and we have seen the intenconsequences in t last days. >> you say it's working, but in two weeks time, isis brought down the jet liner and brought down the attacks in paris. it doesn't feel like its working. the strategy is to contain isis diminish their hold and indusde their strong holds because
that's where this has emanated from. yes, they have foreign fighters who have left there and gone to other places, that remains a challenge and wie have no that challenge has been there all along. basically destroying isis's core which is what we did with al qaeda is working. >> scott, tell us more about the interview and your take away from secretary kerry and his meeting with president alan? >> reporter: to the secretary outlined for us today a dramatic and if it works a historic grand alliance. he said that he can imagine in the next few weeks, the united states, russia and france cooperating militarily against isis, or as he preferred to call it, daash in syria.
the idea of u.s. and return sus forces fighting together, working together against this terrible enemy is a remarkable idea, but that is exactly what they're trying to do. you know, it seems to me that the americans can't say they're sup porting the russianings and the russians can't say they're supporting the americans, but both can say that they're supporting france. and that might be a historic break through. >> it might be a break through indeed, scott, what do you think that means for the future of assad, given that putin has wanted him to the stay in power? >> reporter: putin as you say wants assad to stay in power as the dictator in syria, the americans want him to go. it is my impression in talking to u.s. officials that they now consider isis to be the larger of the two evils and they're willing to leave assad to the side for the moment while they attack isis. >> when will this cooperation
begin, do you think, scott? >> reporter: well, charlie, again, this is an ambition, this is a hope that the russians will come along, secretary kerry seemed to think that this will be in the next few weeks, if indeed it will be possible at all. president alan -- president hollande will be going to meet with president putin. >> scott will have all the latest news on to the terror attacks tochb s tonight on the evening news. many buildings around the world is being lit up with the french colors, one of those places will be the exhibition game in -- friday night attacks began outside the stadium where the french team was playing germany, a cousin of one of the

this morning a texas father is pleading for the return of his 6-year-old son who he says was illegally abducted by his ex-wife. today he's calling on the state department and a sitting congressman to help his cause. michelle miller met with chris brann at his home last week. she's here with a story you're seeing first here on "cbs this morning." michelle, good morning. >> good morning. according to the state department last year there were more than 1400 open child abduction cases outside the u.s. 39 in brazil alone. one of those 13 is nico brann, whose mother brought him to brazil back in 2013. his father is now in the fight of his life to bring his son back home to the u.s. >> so this is his room? >> it is. >> reporter: chris brann has kept his son's bedroom in houston exactly the way it was
when he left. >> this is where we changed his diapers. >> reporter: the day his ex-wife, marcelle, took nico to brazil for a family wedding. >> i started asking my attorneys what was going on. i got a phone call essentially that they weren't learning. >> reporter: chris learned marcelle enrolled their toddler in a brazilian school, found a new job and petitioned brazilian courts for full custody, which they granted. chris says he had no idea any of it has happening. >> it's heart-wrenching, it's devastating. to be in a situation where i was seeing my son every single day, participating in his life, an active member in his life, a loving parent, to being in a situation now where i have less than 1% physical custody of my child -- >> reporter: granted partial visitation by a judge, chris now travels from houston to salvador every eight weeks to visit his boy. he picks up his 6-year-old from
school, spends the afternoon playing with him and then returns him to his ex-wife's family. >> are you able to see the change in him? >> definitely. it's hard for him to communicate with me. it's hard for him to be able to express to me in english what it is that's going on, what he feels. >> reporter: chris and his attorney, jared gesner, are fighting to return nico to the u.s. they say marcelle altered several documents to conceal a premeditated abduction. earlier this year a texas court found that marcelle wrongly and maliciously concealed nico's whereabouts. and a federal court in brazil affirmed nico had been taken unlawfully from texas. still a judge ruled that he should stay in brazil with his mother because he is well settled. we contacted the legal team in brazil for a response, citing privacy laws protecting minors in cases like these, her lawyers
say they cannot comment, only the local court can. >> i think the most important thing to emphasize is both the united states and brazil agree that the child has been illegally taken from the united states to brazil. >> reporter: gesner filed a petition to have nico returned under the hague convention, the international agreement which states that custody should be decided in a child's home country. >> and under the treaty, a child who was illegally taken, must be returned to their country of residence unless there's a risk of harm to that child present by the left-behind parent. >> what's it going to take to get nico back? >> i think this will take the direct involvement of president obama reaching out and saying this just needs to be resolved. >> reporter: president obama stepped into another international custody battle, the case of american david goldman, who fought for five years to bring his son home from brazil. goldman's victory gives chris brann hope. >> he needs to come home.
it's been two years. this house is like a mausoleum to him. everything reminds me of him. but i will never give up. >> the state department told us it is working with the brann family and also cited brazil repeatedly for failing to meet its obligations under the hague abduction convention. >> those stories are always heart-breaking to me because the kids love their parents, the parents love their kids. these guys have to figure out how you love your child more than you dislike your spouse. >> they had joint custody in texas. the issue really is both parents need to have joint custody. that's what the law says. >> the law both in brazil and the united states. >> both places. >> hopefully your story will start a conversation. thank you, michelle. what do willie mays, steven

before september 11th. >> koid for black. a legendary operative, escaped an assassination attempt by al qaeda while serving in khartoum. >> the first week i was in a counterterrorism center a new chief comes in. they stick you in a conference room. everybody comes in briefing you on areas offing a tifrt. i don't shock easy. but i was shocked. this was a wave of threats coming at the united states. >> in the spring of 2001, we submitted authorities to the incoming bush administration, it essentially advocating a paramilitary operation and the word back was we're not quite ready to consider this, we don't want the clock to start ticking. >> the crisis comes to a head on july 10th, 2001.
richard blee, the head of the bin ladin unit, barges into black's officer. >> he comes in, the roof is falling down. great, which guy? the information we now compiled was absolutely compelling. it was multiple sourced. it was sort of the last straw. we decided the next thing to do was to pick up the white phone, call the white house, we're coming down right now. i said, connie, i have to come see you. it was one of the rare times in my seven years as director where i said i have to come see you. we're coming right now. >> reporter: print at the july 10 white house meeting, national security adviser condoleeza rice and other top officials. >> so rich started by saying, there will be significant terrorist attacks against the united states in the coming weeks or months. the attacks will be spectacular. they may be multiple. al qaeda's intention is the destruction of the united states. i said, the country's going to go on a war footing now.
so i slammed my hand on the table. >> what happened? >> yeah, what did happen? yeah, what happened? >> essentially, nothing happened? >> yeah. that's right. >> condoleeza rice would later write, having raised the alert levels for u.s. personnel abroad, i thought we were doing what needed to be done. >> if on the 10th of september we were able to walk into the united states and say we think u.s. airliners will be hijacked tomorrow. just think about it. if we had been able to give him that very specific piece, as the president, he may very well held all the airliners from flying until when? >> if you don't put a system of defensive in place, if you don't button up your airports, button
open your buildings, change your visa policies, have some ideas of what's going on in the united states, you're going to get hurt. >> chris is a writer, an award winning former producer for "60 minutes" jules is the co-director, he and his brother are t behind the cbs documentary "9 already 11." quickly, before we talk about what you saw. how did this come about, this film? >> well, you know, as document aaro rya documentaryians. could we get all 12 living cia direct o, to talk with us about the rulesf engagement? you know, what's the mission of cia? how far should cia go to keep us safe? it began with the idea that we would get all 12, to our
delight, one at a time, george h.w. bush was the first. he insisted on being a part of the program. george tenet was the last holdout. he finally came around. >> and the answer to the question, with that kind of intelligence, why something didn't happen is? >> well, you know, everybody talks about that famous august presidential daily brief, you know bin ladin determined to strike on the u.s. the july 10 meeting, that pales in comparison to the importance of that july 10 meeting. there was a drum beat of threats from al qaeda. the problem was it wasn't specific and actionable. i think what is new about this even though george tenet has written about it in his book, kofur black says said it wasn't clear, it could have been here. the attacks could have been here in the u.s. but as adrena bennett said, what
do you do? do you shut down the airports? george tenet says he does not feel for the record the white house ignored his warnings. what he says is it was probably, you know, you would have to button down the airport, button down the wild building, a change of visa policies, at this point two of the hijackers were already here a as we now know. >> there is a clear line coming from the cia in this documentary as well as books they have published. this was not a failure of intelligence september 11th. the details months and months of pdbs, the daily briefings the president gets. this july meeting that you so dramatically described with kofur black telling condoleeza rice they are coming for us. why wasn't something done? and why didn't the cia go back to the white house after something wasn't done and say, come on, let's do something? >> i think the cia felt they did
come back again and again. at the end of the day, these are the rocky -- it's a rogue agency is no longer was it is. i think they play by the rules of listening giving their marching orders by the president and when the presidents don't listen or at least do not have enough intelligence to be able to make that decision. but i think it goes back to what mike morel said that it was not a failure of intelligence. i think it's a national failure. ? right. >> we could never have implemthed before 9/11. people were not ready for it. >> you know, what was fascinating to my is they were all so candid, guys, all the directors you talked were were candid. there seems to be disagreement of what the mission is among the >> we call eight battle for the soul of the cia. there is an existential crisis going on at the cia. we were sudden u stunned to discover how passionate the cia directors were in their
disagreements with one another. for example, when david petraeus took over as cia director, michael hayden took him aside, one general do another and said, never before in the history of cia has it become such a paramilitary organization and that comes at a cost. it comes at the cost of intelligence gathering. if you become too fixated on that, bob yates pointed out how much different the world would be had we not gone into iraq. that was an analytical failure. you pay a price when you get seduced by this covert paramilitary. >> a secret army. >> the question was when petraeus became cia directedor he would accentuate that. but that's not the fact. he did not accentuate it. did he? >> as it turns out, interestingly, lethal drone strikes, which, of course, the cia to this day doesn't officially acknowledge but which the director talks to us about.
lethal gun strikes increased dramatically under president obama. >> clearly, it did. >> that was over a period of about a year. >> the petraeus operation is considered to be men oak, men and women on the ground trying to achieve a military objective. >> yeah, it goes time, a division of cbs. we'll be right back. >> so ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
