7:03 am
welcome to cbs morning as you wake up in the west. russian president vladimir putin is threatening serious consequences after turkey shot down a russian warplane. nato member turkey says it fired on the fighter jet after a violation of its airspace. video shows the plane on fire before it crashed into a mountain on syria. >> russia says the plane never crossed into turkey. a u.s. drone is helping search for the wreckage. charlie d'agata follows the breaking story from london. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the turkish military says they gave ten warnings over the course of five minutes that the russian warplane was flying over its airspace. they say they got no reply. that's when turkish fighter jets opened fire. video shot from below shows the russian warplane plummeting toward the ground in flames before impact. at least one parachute was seen descending after the strike. unverified video posted by
7:04 am
syrian rebels from the area appears to show a motionless russian crewman. the rebels say he's dead, although it's unclear whether he died in the initial strike or by crossfire from the ground. russian helicopters were seen flying over the area of the crash in an apparent search and rescue operation for its lost crew. president putin was quick to condemn an attack he described as a stab in the back by accomplices of terrorism while his defense minister noticinsis the warplane never strayed from russian territory. the kurds say the jet briefly crossed into their airspace. the region is filled with syrian rebels who are ethic turks. turkey has criticized the russians for its bombardment.
7:05 am
video confirms that the jet was in russian airspace. russia and turkey are on opposite sides. russia backs the assad regime, turkey the rebels that russia has been cominbombing. nato is calling for an emergency meeting this afternoon, gayle. >> thank you, charlie d'agata reporting from london. police are on alert this morning here in the united states. they have been warned about the newest threat from isis. sources tell cbs news the fbi and the department of homeland security sent out a joint intelligence bulletin. it tells law enforcement agencies about the terror group's newest tactics. and a cbs news poll out this morning finds americans more fearful of a terrorist attack. 69% think a u.s. attack is
7:06 am
likely to happen in the next several months. jeff pegues is live at reagan national airport. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is an intelligence bulletin that went out late monday, another element of homeland security, as local authorities step up security across the country. the information in the intelligence bulletin that went out monday includes information gathered since the paris attacks. it gives local law enforcement officials the tools they need to counter this new threat from isis of these coordinated attacks. agencies nationwide are retraining officers in active shooter drills, just as the new york police department did on sunday. we saw where they shut down a subway station and were working and practicing to neutralize threats. separately on monday, the state department issued a worldwide travel alert for all americans ahead of the busy holiday travel season. officials say terror groups like isis and al qaeda continue to
7:07 am
plan attacks using conventional and nonconventional weapons. they also warn of lone wolf attacks. the state department says u.s. citizens should remain vigilant especially when they're traveling overseas in large public places. now, federal law enforcement officials are still saying that there is no credible or specific threat against the u.s. but this intel bulletin and the travel alert suggests they are concerned, charlie. >> thank you, jeff. michael morell is a former cia deputy director. michael, good morning. >> good morning. >> how seriously should we take these travel alerts? >> the one overseas, it's obviously we need to take that seriously given what happened in paris and isis's capability. here at home i think we need to think seriously about an attack over the holidays, for two reasons. isis has thousands of followers in the united states, the fbi knows that. they've now been incentivized by what happened in paris to try to
7:08 am
do something here. we know that those same people were focused on the 4th of july. you would think they would still be focused on the holiday period. >> if we had an attack like that that took place in paris, what would change? >> if we had a paris-style attack in new york or washington, what would our policy then be vis-à-vis isis? a second question is, okay, if that would be our policy the day after, why isn't that our policy the day before? that's the fundamental lesson learned from 9/11. >> that's the question we asked when we saw the bombing of the oil delivery outside of raqqah. >> right. that's all rules of engagement. >> how good are they, mike, when you think about it? from the outside looking in, they seem sophisticated, organized, they seem to have a high degree of intelligence. >> it's a great question. it's a counterintuitive.
7:09 am
when they have a successful attack, they seem that way. but the vast majority of terrorists are not particularly intelligent, they're not particularly sophisticated. they make a lot of mistakes. the mohammad at t mohammad atttd are very rare. >> the point is they're willing to die. >> yes. >> this breaking news this morning, the russian jet downed by turkey, how significant is that? >> i think it's significant in the sense that the fundamental problem that we have to solve to go after isis in syria is assad. there has to be some sort of an agreement among all the players in what happens to him, so we can focus the syrian army on isis. this complicates that, because russia is on one side of that, right, which is assad gets to stay, and turkey is on the other side, assad's got to go right now. it complicates that discussion. >> how will they settle that? >> through negotiation, sitting around the table talking. that's going to be the main
7:10 am
issue discussed today between the president and hollande. >> michael, thank you. a french judge is questioning a suspect who lent his apartment to the organizer of the paris terrorist attacks. important new evidence may be tied to the suspect who was last seen across the border in belgium. reports say he may have failed to carry out a planned attack on the same night. debora patta is live in brussels with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the focus of belgian police here is on the hunt for salah abdeslam, europe's most wanted man and a key suspect in the paris attacks. and the discovery of the suicide vest yesterday in paris could now provide them with a vital clue. the suicide vest was found in a pile of trash by a street cleaner in the paris suburb of montrouge without a detonator. police officials say it contains similar explosives to those used
7:11 am
in the paris attacks. french police have not formally linked the vest to salah abdeslam but it was found in the area where his cellphone was used. belgian police are on a nationwide manhunt for abdeslam. he evaded police after the paris attack and was last seen in brussels. the belgian capital is on its fourth day of lockdown as the threat of a paris-style attack on the city remains high. the city's schools and metro are closed until tomorrow, and public gatherings like concerts and soccer games have been banned. belgian residents like cathy frederick are starting to wonder how long these stringent measures will be kept up. >> translator: we are scared for our children, for ourselves, for our own lives. we are scared to take public transport, that's for sure. >> reporter: adding to anxiety here is that isis has released a new propaganda video featuring a belgian jihadi tracing attacks
7:12 am
on his homeland. >> debora patta in brussels. french president hollande is meeting this hour with president obama. they're discussing a new strategy against isis. chip reid is at the white house with how the meeting could lead to a larger military role for the united states. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the meeting will begin momentarily and a european official tells cbs news that president hollande has a very clear message for president obama, that the threat from isis requires urgent action, and that the stability of europe is at stake. the white house is the first stop for french president françois hollande as he visits world leaders, pushing for more action against isis. he struck a hawkish tone, telling reporters france will intensify air strikes. hollande could push for a stepped-up air campaign since president obama opposes putting large numbers of u.s. boots on the ground. >> i think president hollande will be saying, okay, i accept
7:13 am
that that's your position, can you step up the various aspects of that policy. >> reporter: also in play, america's rocky relationship with russia. president hollande will visit moscow later this week. the u.s. has been skeptical of russia's involvement in syria and whether it is fighting to keep syrian president bashar al assad in power or focusing on isis, after the group claimed responsibility for bombing a russian plane leaving egypt last month. president hollande is expected to continue his call for the u.s. and russia to set aside their differences and fight as one broad coalition. the u.s. says they will continue to speak with russia but they are making no promises at this point. >> chip reid, thank you so much. republican presidential frontrunner donald trump says he would bring backwater boarding. a poll shows him leading in iowa at 25%. the poll finds iowan republicans
7:14 am
in favor of trump. >> reporter: deniers by fact checkers and local police only make trump more convinced that he did in fact see thousands of muslim americans celebrating on 9/11. he repeated the claim in iowa last night and blamed the media for the controversy. >> thousands of people believed me because they saw it. >> reporter: in columbus, ohio, trump told a supportive crowd he's right, even if the video he claims he saw doesn't exist. >> so i have some good people. and they checked and they checked. and believe me, it's being cleared off plenty of stuff. >> reporter: for a few hours on sunday, trump got some backup from close gop rival ben carson who said he saw news footage of muslims celebrating too. >> reporter: did you see it happening on 9/11? >> i saw the film of it in new
7:15 am
jersey, yes. >> reporter: that was at 2:00 p.m. by 5:00 p.m., carson's camp was telling cbs news, the ample news footage of celebrations he saw was from the middle east. carson and trump have both called for more surveillance of muslim americans. he said the u.s. shouldn't accept syrian refugees either. >> when they come in from syria, guests of president obama, we shouldn't be taking any. we don't know where they come from or who they are. >> reporter: he argued his views aren't discriminatory. >> i'm probably the least racist person on earth. >> reporter: he also tweeted out a statistic he saw that most white people who are murdered were killed by blacks, which was not true. trump said he shouldn't have to
7:16 am
be responsible for the accuracy of everything he tweets. police say a police officer shot la kwan mcdonald 17 times last year. police say he was acting erratically under the influence of pcp. a judge has ordered the city to release dash cam video of the shooting by tomorrow. city leaders are asking for calm. a demand for answers this morning in the nfl. the league and its players union hold a mandatory conference call today with athletic trainers, after rams quarterback keenum suffered a consuggests. >> the injury happened at a critical moment. many focused inintentlily on a late score. less so, it appears, on safety. >> you can see him go down and
7:17 am
hit the back of the head. >> reporter: the hit left quarterback case keenum seizing his helmet in pain. >> the helmet to the ground, still one of the troubling spots when we talk about concussion at the nfl level. >> reporter: dr. dennis cardone is co-director of the concussion center at the new york langone medical center. >> that's a very concerning fall to the ground. you see him have difficulty getting up, he's staggering. >> reporter: for you these are obvious signs of a concussion? >> these are clear signs of a concussion and something we would be concerned about. >> reporter: but keenum stayed in the game. >> we did not see it on the jumbotron. we would have taken a different course of action but we were not aware of it. >> reporter: the brain is protected by cerebrospinal fluid. a concussion occurs when a blow to the head causes the brain to hit the skull. the nfl issued a new protocol in
7:18 am
2013. do you think the game is safer than it's ever been before? roger goodell said concussions are down 20% since 2012. >> i do think it's safer. but injuries are a part of contact sports. >> reporter: more than two dozen medical staffers are supposed to be keeping an eye on players throughout the games, including an independent spotter in the press box who has the power to stop the action because of an injury. the spotter didn't intervene on sunday because reggie scott was on the field. >> when they're out attending to a player, the assumption is the train certificate going to take care of it. >> the system fell apart a little bit here. we need to fix it. >> reporter: more people are in a position to say he needs to come out. >> probably more independent people, not in the moment of the game, to be able to make an independent decision and potentially the right decision. >> so the rams say the spotter didn't stop the game because the
7:19 am
trainer was on the field. fisher said the trainer was pulled off the field by an nfl official. no one seems to know anything for certain, except doctors, who after the game officially diagnosed keenum with a concussion. >> jeff, thank you so much. he launched amazon and changed the way we shop. now jeff bezos is making history in space travel. ahead, we'll talk to him about the successful landing of a reusable rocket good morning. we have been noticing the cloud thicken. the rain is pushing into the north bay. we have machines in san francisco -- mostly sunny skies in san francisco. the rain should move in around 10:00. there's the radar. right now we have do temperatures in the 40s and 50s. grab the umbrella out the door with temperatures up to 60 degrees. hang onto it tightly. a south wind up to 20 miles an hour. rain this morning and early this morning. another round of rain tonight.

jeff, good morning. >> good morning, guys, how are you? >> we begin with this. why is this a game changer? >> well, you know, charlie, you've seen a lot of rockets take off in your time, but you've never seen one land and automatic rockets that we've ever flown as a civilization have been expendable. we use them one time and we throw them away. the rocket you are seeing behind me is completely reusable. that's a game changer, because it changes the cost structure of space travel completely. throwing rockets away is like getting in your 747 and flying across the country and throwing the 747 away. you only use it one sometime. >> does that add velocity to when we will all be traveling in space? >> yes. you know, our long-term vision at blue origin is millions of people living and working in space, helping to continued to explore the solar system. that's what we are working on, charlie, reusability is a total game changer for that.
7:34 am
>> so where does blue origin stand right now, jeff? >> well, we just, successfully flew this vehicle and returned it to the launch site for the first time and for the next couple of years, we will continue with a very methodical test program. one of the good things about this vehicle is it can fly autonomously. it's kind of a flying robot. it can fly up into space, bring itself down and land. so we don't have to put pilots at risk during the test program. once we're completely confident in the vehicle, we'll start taking people up into space. >> how much do you estimate it will cost for a ride? >> we don't know yet. it's going -- we have to wait another year or so before we're ready to set the price. for people who are interested in that, they can go to the blue origin website and sign up, as soon as we have ticket information, we'll e-mail them. >> are you going to sign up? >> i'm going to i can't wait too go, charlie.
