7:12 am
ground for local terror attacks, like al qaeda and osama bin laden did before 9/11. which is why perhaps president trump's other demands, leaving u.s. intelligence agents on the ground in part to monitor isis, remains a key sticking point. speaking yesterday to gayle king, secretary of state mike pompeo said defeating the extremist group remains a top priority. >> is it gaining strength, in your opinion? >> it's complicated. there are certainly places where isis is more powerful today than they were three or four years ago, but the caliphate is gone, and their capacity to conduct external attacks has been made much more difficult. >> reporter: even if a deal is agreed, this isn't the end. a new phase of negotiations will begin in norway, this time between the taliban and the afghan government. but these negotiations may prove even more difficult, because these two warr ing sides will

residen recession could be on the way. >> hours later mr. trump admitted he is considering a tax cut. authorities believe people are less hesitant to report, so more active shooter situations are being prevented. any threat will be taken seriously. this is the latest and possibly last round of talks between the taliban and the united states. documents indicate that patrick frazee may point the finger at someone else when he goes on trial. it may be his former girlfriend. it's difficult to trace these threats, but his legal team says they are concerned for his safety on that island. just a warning that today's video features baby shark, but it's so cute. ♪ baby shark do, do, do >> you have to admit this kid, the way he comes to life when the shark beat drops, is undeniably adorable.

lapierre on the phone yesterday before he told reporters, quote, we have very, very strong background checks now. administration officials tell cbs news there were lengthy meetings on possible legislative action that could be taken on guns. a wave of arrests of people who police say threaten to carry out mass shootings after this month's massacres in dayton and el paso. the suspects include a truck driver in indianapolis who allegedly threatened to shoot and stab people at a tennessee church, and a 15-year-old in florida accused of posting a mass shooting threat on a video game platform. cbs news senior national security analyst fran townsend was a homeland security and counterterrorism advisor for president george w. bush. good morning. these threats may be people being more observant and reporting more about possible threats out there. it's alarming, though, are we facing an epidemic here?
8:04 am
>> there is no question there is a rise in anti-semitism, racism. we are seeing attacks in the united states but also in europe. i think what we need to understand is many of the lessons learned about fighting international terrorism apply here domestically, right. you see something, you say something. so if it's a young person, it's your teacher, it's your classmates, if you are an older person, it's your spouse, it's your community, it's your employer. you have to encourage people. i think people now understand that they can play a role in ref preventing these. >> are there things missing in the u.s. t fight the domestic terrorism issue that law enforcement needs? >> well, no question, right, that we had all these authorities when we were fighting international terrorism that we thought do we really want to apply those here in the united states. i think there are privacy and civil liberties concerns, first amendment concerns. i think we have to get over that and understand that there is a balance, but we have got to give law enforcement the resources and the authority they need.
8:05 am
>> do we have to have another conversation about what it really looks like? many times people think of terrorists and they think from a foreign country, darker skin. these last arrests, these last three reported, the two yesterday, the mother was saying he is a little boy, he wouldn't think this way. they have all been white men. do we need to have a real conversation about what we're dealing withth here? >> let's be honest, gayle. i think when the terrorist is a white person, we tend to make excuses, right? >> say they are crazy. >> they're crazy, right, as opposed to saying if it was a muslim, they are a terrorist. we have to label this for what it is and we have to be honest and not make excuses. again when you look at the international plight, we used to look at what are the enablers. you take away their guns, their communications, you take away their ability to recruit. domestic terrorism isn't as hierarchal and organized in that way, there is responsibility both to take away their guns, right, and make that less accessible, to have social media
8:06 am
sites where they post hateful manifest owes. take those down and app notify law enforcement. >> that does law enforcement need that they don't have -- that they have in international cases but not domestically? >> this has do with surveillance capability, subpoena capability, all of that. i think they have begun to shift the resources because they see the increasing problem. i think at the federal level they have been slow to do that. at the local level where police officers are responding to these incidents, there has been a quicker shift. so i do think it's also a matter -- >> i'm struck by the mother with the little boy who said he is a little boy, he wouldn't do that, he is not crazy. the experts say there are specific warning signs >>ly right. they will post things on social media. they will say to classmates or to family members that they are going to get a gun, that they want to have a shooting, they want to kill people. those are the sorts of things we have to take seriously and have people reporting those. >> fran townsend, thank you very much. the first film project from
