welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off and margaret brennan is here. we begin with this. outrage and many questions surrounding the downing of malaysia airline flight 17. here is what we know right now. all 298 people aboard the boeing 777 were killed. debris and bodies are scattered across several miles of the ukraine. american intelligence officials believe that a surface-to-air missile brought the jet down. >> flight 17 was on its way from amsterdam to kuala lumpur when it crashed near the russian border. the plane went down in an area held by ukrainian insurgents backed by rush. mark phillips is in ukraine this morning to begin our coverage. >> reporter: good morning. it's day of shock, grief, and rekrimm nation here in the ukraine. everybody, the separatists, rebels who control much of the region. the government in kiev, even the government in moscow, everyone is blaming someone else for the
7:04 am
disaster and in the middle of this, an investigation will have to be organized. a ball of flame and a column of smoke on the horizon. the tragic end of malaysia air flight 17. this video captured by residents near the ukrainian/russian border as they watched the shattered plane fall from the sky. the heavier parts crashed to the ground. the other parts, like personal belongings came lingering down. unmistakable parts of m-817. the malaysia airlines logo still visible. a piece of fuselage, a burnt out engine, and the passengers themselves, what's left of them. too graphic to show here. lifeless bodies and body parts along the twisted metal. their possessions nearby. their suitcases lying nearby, a
7:05 am
suitcase of passports. debris spreading over nine-square miles proving it was an explosion. but whose? the finger-pointing of who was to blame as it's still burning. they blamed the damning of the m 718 on the government. they say it's not a disaster. it's a result of the heinous crime. petro blames it on the terrorists. he has proof. phone conversation where they admit shooting it down. but the conversation is unverified and it's not clear which plane is being referred to. other planes have been shot down in the area this week. russian president vladimir putin also blamed the government in
7:06 am
kiev, saying it bore the responsibility because of its military campaign in trying to take back property. there are lots of questions to be answered. who fired the missile if there was a missile, who supplied the weaponry, and also why was there still being air traffic being routed over in that area where there was known military activity. for "cbs this morning," i'm mark philips in ukraine. hundreds of relatives are at the airport in amsterdam this morning waiting for word. more than half the people aboard flight 17 were from the netherlands. the list of victims includes three infants so far. there is no confirmation of american casualties. officials believe dozens were aids, activists and researchers. they were traveling to a conference in australia. we'll have more on the 295
7:07 am
victims in the next half hour. >> here's the last known photo of flight 17 after it left airport. it was going 568 miles an hour and fly 3g 3,000 feet over eastern ukraine. ukrainian officials claim a russian-made missile hit the plane knocking it out of the sky. body orr is in washington with more on the investigation and what we know so far. bob, good morning. >> good morning, margaret. while the ukraine government blames pro-russian separatists in the ukraine, u.s. officials cannot say definitively who shot off the missile that brought down flight 17. some believe they hit the civilian passenger plane by mistake. the winding trail of debris leaves no doubt flight 17 began peeling apart in midair. parts of wreckage and bodies were scattered in fields of the flight path.
7:08 am
large sections of the boeing 777 found its way from the primary crash site, apparently broke off in flight. but there's a burned out crate ter, mangled parts. >> the weapon is absolutely critical. >> mark rosenker says despite the devastation there's plenty investigators can learn from the wreckage. >> they'll be looking for where the missile may have struck the aircraft from there. they'll also be looking for any type of explosive residue. they'll then be able to identify the kind of missile that it was and perhaps even where it was launched from and who was responsible. >> sources say u.s. intelligence detected a missile in flight and indications that a target rag door was tracking the civilian airliner around the time of the crash. ukrainian officials say the missile came from an official
7:09 am
system. the unit is made by a russian military contractor and this animation demonstrates its capability to track and destroy a high-performance fighter jet. while such a system was recently spotted in rebel territory near the russian border, separatists have denied shooting down the airplane, but u.s. officials point to recent comments posted online by a separatist leader who claim credit for knocking out a military aircraft with a blunt warning, quote, do not fly in our skies. now, it's not yet clear who's going to take control of this investigation ultimately. the u.s. has offered its experts there to assist. but it's a big problem since the crash site is in a war zone still controlled by rebel fighters but it's imperative that qualified aviation analysts get ahold of those black boxes and take a look at the wreckage to confirm suspicions that this was no ordinary airplane crash. >> bob, thank you.
7:10 am
mike morell is with us. former seen your director. good morning. >> good morning. >> there's suspicious although it's been confirmed that there might have been missiles. what you do think might have happened? >> i think what happened here is separatists who shot down the aircraft earlier this week believed they were targeting a ukrainian military transport and they made a mistake. i think that's what happened here. >> what do you think it would take to prove that? >> we have our own intelligence. when you marry that with any information the ukrainians have and you get to the crash site and take a look at the aircraft, i think you can put all the pieces together and make a pretty strong case. >> if proven, what does it mean for putin at home? >> i think this is very bad news for putin because it's going to force the west on the one hand to put much tougher sanctions in
7:11 am
place than we've seen so far. the sanctions so far have been pretty light. >> countries meaning netherlands. >> and the united states. so much tougher sanctions. and then i think there's a small minority that has not been vocal inside russia who is opposed to putin and where he's taking the country. something like this could lead them to be more vocal and question his leadership. >> mike, let's talk about the evidence so far. they have released a recording they say of military on the ground talking to russian intelligence about shooting down a plane. the u.s. says they've given tank, they've given rockets launchers. do the insurgents have this capability? >> my understanding is they have this buk capability, right, which can bring down an aircraft. i think one of the things we have to think about here is the degree of russian complicity. clearly they're complicit in that they have encouraged funded and supported the rebels.
7:12 am
the question is does the complicity go any further than that? does the complicity actually go to the russians actually giving them the system, training the rebels on the system, or even having russian forces standing there firing the missile. >> should. we know some of that already? >> i think it's going to take some time. there's bits of data the analysts are putting together. >> one of the things they're concerned about is the open border, that russia has allowed many different fighters with different agendas to come in here. can you put the genie back in the bottle if they have these kinds of weapons? >> i think one of the things that we talked about in the program is putin started this and has putin lost control of the movement in eastern ukraine and these guys are now acting on their own. that's a question as well. >> mike morell, thank you. >> good to be here. >> president obama promises the investigators will help to find out what happened. he returned to washington late
7:13 am
last night after a political trip to new york. joe biden spoke about the incident in detroit after it happened. >> a malaysia flight headed to kuala lumpur was shot down. shot down. not an accident. blown out of the sky. we've seen reports that there may have been american citizens on board and obviously that's our first concern. >> mayor garrett's at the white house where officials are coordinating the response. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. top officials tell us here this morning they're still trying to determine if american citizens were aboard malaysia flight 17 and thoep have a definitive answer about that today. information on that and development will be part of the presidents' daily intelligence briefing scheduled to be delivered at 9:30 this morning in the oval office. meanwhile the president made telephone calls. the two countries hit hardest by
7:14 am
the disaster. the white house now turns to two different and important tasks. one, build and provide safe transport and working conditions with the international crash investigators now heading to the scene. the other task is gauge interest in europe to even tougher economic sanctions against russia. the instability has long warned about it and has now direct hi or indirectly led to the deaths of 298 civilians. of course, there are members of congress who have also called for tougher economic sanctions. at this hour president obama is not scheduled to address this air disaster in public but if that changes, we'll let you know. charlie? >> major, thanks. on my pbs program i interviewed hillary clinton and asked how the u.s. should respond to this tragic event. >> there does seem to be some growing awareness that it probably had to be russian
7:15 am
insurgents. how we determine that will require some forensics, but then if there is evidence pointing in that direction, the equipment had to have come from russia. >> so what does the united states do if there is clear indication and clear evidence that it was russian separatists and perhaps using weapons from russia? >> i think first question is what does europe do? if there is evidence linking russia to this, that should inspire the europeans to do much more on three counts. one, toughen their own sanctions, make it very clear there has to be a price to pay. number two, immediately announce accelerated efforts and with gazprom and thirdly do more. put putin on notice that he had gone too far and we are not going to stand idly by. >> clinton says ukraine's military should receive better training and equipment.
7:16 am
coming up, we'll take a closer look at why the malaysia plane was flying so close to you krean. peter greenberg with why airlines routinely go through war zones. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." this morning the prime minister is warning he could order a significant expansion of the ground invasion in gaza. israeli forces made their move yesterday. ahead of that they launched heavy air strikes into the territory. just 32 miles, gaza strip has sustained more than a week of dedsly attacks. holly williams is in gaza city where they're bracing for the next wash of violence. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we have not seen any israeli troops here in gaza city this morning. the streets are empty. it is a virtual ghost town. in fact, the only sounds we hear are the shots of incoming shelling and the roar of outgoing rockets.
7:17 am
after threatening a ground invasion for day, last night israel finally sent its soldiers across the border into the gaza strip. israel said it will be a limited offensive and not an on passion and it's aimed at destroying tunnels used by palestinian militants to infiltrate israeli territory. the israelis claim they foiled an attack thursday by stop 13g. they say it was that attack and rocket fire by militants during what was supposed to be a brief humanitarian cease-fire yesterday that forced it to act to defend its own citizens. the first sign of ground invasion might be imminent with a night of heavy bombardment, clearing the way for israeli troops and tanks. even before the ground offensive began, more than 240 palestinians had been killed in ten days of air strikes and
7:18 am
officials in gaza say most of them were civilians. three palestinian children were killed yesterday when a shell hit their home. suddenly a rocket came from above and hit the roof said the children's neighbor. we carried them in our arms. palestinian militants have fired over 1,300 of their rockets into southern israel during this escalation, killing one person and causing injury and damage. but many of the rockets were shot down by israel's iron dome anti-missile defense system. so far the israeli troops have only moved into the northern gaza strip. we don't know if they'll come any further south, but this morning the shelling and air strikes continue unabated. we do not know how long this ground offensive will last, but hamas -- that's the militant group that controls the gaza strip -- has vowed to make israel pay dearly for it. margaret? >> holly, thanks. at least 35 homes in

8:00 am
it is friday, july 18th, 2014. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including an eyewitness account of the scene of downed malaysia flight 17. but first here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> it's a day of shock, grief, and rekrimm nation here in eastern ukraine. everyone else is blaming someone else for the disaster. >> american intelligence believes a surface-to-air missile brought the jet down. >> i think what happened here is that the separatists believed that they were targeting a ukrainian military transport and they just made a mistake. >> it's not yet clear who's going to take control of this since the crash site is in a war
8:01 am
zone still control by rebel fighters. >> intelligence officials are telling us they're trying to determine if americans were aboard malaysian flight 17. >> nearly two-thirds of the passengers were dutch. they're still trying to come to grips with this tragedy. >> the only sounds we hear are the sounds of incoming shelling and the roar of outgoing rockets. with don't know how long it's going to last. hamas has vowed israel will pay dearly for it. >> there cannot be justice for this offensive loss. >> announcer: today's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by comfort inn. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and margaret brennan. norah o'donnell is off. the remains of flight 17 and the 298 people aboard scattered over nine square miles of eastern ukraine this morning. u.s. officials believe they
8:02 am
brought down the 777 flight 17. they do not know who is responsible. >> they believe forces brought the plane down. the rebels deny that claum. flight 17 took off from amsterdam on thursday and crashed less than four hours in the air. "cbs this morning" spoke to a reporter. she was one of the first journalists on the scene. >> it was something like i had never seen before in my life. i mean it was a long empty country road with wheat fields on one side and grasses on the other side and bodies everywhere in the fields. it was very sad. there were rescue workers who were going through the fields at dusk, tying small white pieces of cloth to sticks that marked each of the bodies' places. it was -- it was horrific. the plane had just taken off and was very laden with fuel and people in the village look up at the sky and saw things falling
8:03 am
from the sky, suitcases with belongings and bodies, but they didn't immediately know what they were sighing. some of the residents described the bodies as looking like they were pieces of cloth. there was a very large fire when it finally came out of the sky. emergency crews were on the scene for quite a few hours to try to put it out. rebels wanted to come out and look and what was happening. they were absolutely convinced the ukrainians shot down the plane. they truly believed that. p17 is a double tragedy for one australian woman. her stepdaughter was on that plane. four months ago her brother and sister-in-law were lost aboard flight 370. another relative said this morning, quote, it just rips our guts out again. we just have to say something about that. it's so heartbreaking to look at the images when you see people's
8:04 am
luggage and the shoes and the passports and to hear that one family has now suffered it twice. it's one of those days in the news when it's just one sad thing after another and just when you think it can't get worse you hear something like that. hopefully they get to the bottom of that. >> our thoughts are with all of them. they believe the 77 p was brought down by a surface-to-air missile. they each accuse each other for carrying out that. we look at the sophisticated missile system that may be responsible. david, good morning. >> good morning. u.s. intelligence are trying to nail down exactly who fired the missile and from where. but also the evidence collected so far suggests pro-russian rebels shot the airliner down by mistake. this is the missile system the ukrainian government says shot down the malaysian airliner. it's a sophisticated weapon
8:05 am
composed of radar, commands and missile launchers. not something that ukraine would own or be expected to operate. but it is listed in the ukraine military area. it's possible it was ceased by the separatists when they overran ukrainian military bases. it could have also been operated by russians either operating inside ukraine or from their own territory. it is made by a russian company which has advertised its capabilities with this animation showing how it can shoot down what looks like an american f-22 jet fighter. a much more difficult target than an airliner. earlier this week president obama listed the airliner. now, one of the biggest problems will be preserving the integrity of the evidence. the separatists say they have the airliner's black boxes and
8:06 am
the youia ukrainiane iaians say would be beyond the reach of the investigators. >> thank you, david. this morning they have identify no americans aboard flight 17. president obama said in delaware after the crash that the u.s. will help investigators to try to find out what happens. jeff pegues is in washington where american experts are waiting for their orders. good morning. >> good morning. the white house is set to send assistants from the national transportation safety board as well as the fbi. we're told there can be assistance from washington. safety is, of course, an incident. 24 hours into the incident u.s. is concerned about how the debris field is being preserved as david mention. in any type of plane crash there's no more important piece of evidence than the black box but this morning there's confusion as to where the black
8:07 am
bach and flight recorder currently are. officials say the plane was 17 years old with more than 75,000 hours in service and a clean maintenance record. the malaysian government insists the flight pakts was declared safe, but within hours of the crash, other carriers announced they would not be flying that route. american carriers were directed back in april to avoid parts of the ukrainian airspace, but late last night the faa issued a notice prohibiting carriers from flying into the airspace where mh-17 crashed. >> flight 370 disappear over the southern indian ocean in march with 239 people on board. cbs news travel editor peter greenberg is here. peter, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> help us understand why this plane was flying over this war zone and therefore was down. >> this plane was not alone.
8:08 am
there were dozens of commercial airlines using this route. remember back in april when u.s. issue thad notice to airmen saying please avoid the area. they were saying avoid crimea and the black sea, not ukraine. yesterday you had many, many airlines using that route i mean normally. now, of course, they're diverting. >> the but the assumption is if they're flying that high at 33,000 feet they cannot be reached by the weapons being used? >> exactly. they had a range of 10,000 feet. these planes are flying at 33,000. so the assumption as tragic as it is now seeming, no one had the capability. >> what will change? >> you're seeing changes already. you're going to see divers all over the world whether it's asia, africa, south america, they're going to start rerouting those flights. >> let's talk about asian airlines. back-to-back tragedies in mont s
8:09 am
s. how do they deal with this. >> their loss over the last three years are over $1.3 billion and they're a government owned entity. the government has been quietly trying to shop for a bailout for a long time. there were no takers even before 370. you can imagine the situation right now. this may be a situation where the airline thoos be grounded for a while because if they can't operate as a financially viable concern, people are booking away this them. this is not an unsafe airline. it's an airline that has great safety record although the odds of losing two airplanes within a six-month period is unprecedented. >> both 777s. do we read anything into this type of airplane? >> no. it's an incredibly safe airplane. if you take a look other than the asia nick crash in san francisco which was clearly pilot error and the two malaysian airlines, i don't know
8:10 am
at this point. >> no americans. >> none confirmed. >> it's an american made airline. >> oh, yes. bowing will very involved in this. they'll send go teams when permitted to do so. they have to be invited in like the national transportation safety board has to be invited in. as you heard jeffries report and dave'd report, it's about preserving the scene itself. it's not just about the black boxes. all the black box is going to tell you is when the plane was hit. what you need to do is a for engs iks trail on the ground. whether there were marks of striation which would be consistent with chemicals. these are things that have to be done right way before anything gets ruined. >> thank you very much, peter. the other major story of morning israeli troops on the ground are moving deeper today. it comes after ten days of air assaults from both sides. this morning israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu
8:11 am
threatened to expand the ground nation. significantly, he says. holly williams is tracking the situation this morning in gaza city. >> good morning. we have not seen any israeli troops here in gaza city this morning. the streets are empty. it's a virtual ghost town. in fact, the only things we hear are the shots of incoming shellings and the roar of outgoing rockets. there was a heavy night of bombardment last night clearing the way for israeli soldiers and tanks to move into the gaza strip. israelis say this will be a limited offensive, not an occupation and it's aim is destroying tunnels used by militants to infiltrate the military. the israeli military claims it foiled an atam early thursday by disarming 13 who were using one of the tunnels. they say it was that attack and rocket fire which was supposed to be a brief humanitarian cease

8:18 am
telling you about. the spread of a dangerous mosquito-born virus. the vie was was originally detected in the caribbean seven months ago. the two new cases involve americans who did not recently travel outside the country. yikes. our dr. holly phillips joins us at the table. i d chikungunya, i wasn't sure if i wanted to eat it. >> not this one. a person travels outside of the states to an area where there's more of this virus. it's really endemic right now in the caribbean. in fact, puerto rico just declared an evpidemic of chikungunya. the way it works is people travel outside of the united states, get bitten there. they come back home and get bitten be i a mosquito here that didn't carry the virus.
8:19 am
that mosquito then bites the person next to them and the naub and that's how it's spread locally. so the people in florida -- >> so the people didn't become a carrier for the mosquitos that bite them later. yeah. you know, charlie, it's not justs that the mosquitos transmit the virus to us, we transmit it to mosquitos and they pass it on. that's why it's so alarming. >> what do you do about it? >> it's all about preventing the mosquito bite. there's treatment for symptoms only so we really sort of have to pay attention of not being outside at dusk and dawn when mosquitos are most active and getting rid of standing water near the house. also important to recognize the symptoms. the main ones are feeb and joint pain and although the virus is serious it's rarely fatal. it's about recognizing the symptoms early and getting rid of it. >> is bug spray a solution to
8:20 am
this? >> bug spray plays a role but it's important to stay covered up. >> i find no redeeming qualities in mosquitos. >> i'm with you. we continue with the coverage of the plane crash disaster. deborah hersman will join us. the extraordinary challenges investigators face in war zone. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs "morning rounds" sponsored by purina. your pet, our passion. i know what you're thinking. you're thinking beneful.

i just want to address a horrible tragedy in the ukraine. earlier a plane carrying 295 crash and apparently brought down by a missile and there's more trouble. after trading missile launches there was a brief talk of a cease-fire. i taped this show earlier in the evening so we don't have a lot of information on these stories but we'll have complete coverage of both of these stories on tomorrow night's show and i'm being told we do not have a show on friday night. okay. oh, thank god. >> yeah, because it's a story nobody wants to tell. >> when you have a comedy show it's hard to figure it out. >> it really is. >> tragedy. >> you've got to let the people know what's happening. ahead we go into the cutting-edge company that could help with the downing of flight 17. that's coming up on "cbs this

the passengers of flight 17 come from at least 17 countries and the crash is front page news all over the world. "usa today" says the plane was blown out of the sky according to vice president biden. in malaysia where the plane was headed the straits times says a crash in ukraine. it's a serious investigation. december rah hersman is the former chair of the national transportation safety board. she joins us this morning from chicago. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's begin by understanding the special challenge of doing this in a war zone, the investigation of a crash. >> so there always are logistical challenges for investigators, but i will tell you that this scene holds particular challenges, and i think it's about ensuring not just the safety of the investigators that you would send in but also ensuring the integrity of the evidence and maintaining the preservation of that scene of the wreckage. >> do you believe that so far it has been preserved or has it
8:33 am
already become, you know, questionable? >> well, i think probably we've all seen a lot of people engaged with the wreckage, whether it's on roads or farms or in the main wreckage area. that can compromise the scene. but really what's most important is that you have those pertinent pieces of evidence. if there was a missile strike, you want to make sure that you have the area of the aircraft where that initial penetration took place, where you have that telltale signature of what happened. you want to make sure you have the black boxes to corroborate what happened. it's not about one piece of evidence. it's about the totality of the information. >> deborah, there are conflicting reports this morning about the black boxes, have they been found, if they have, who has them. isn't it important that once they're foubds, the right person investigates? i understand there's a skill to getting information from the black boxes.
8:34 am
>> absolutely. you want to make sure that particularly in accidents where you have water damage or fire damage where there's been thermal effect to the boxes, that you have the right people reading them out. it's a skill. it takes expertise. and it's not something that everyone can do. so if you damage the recorders when you open them up and when you begin to read them out, it's hard to recover that information. and so you want to make sure that you really preserve that and the right people have access to it. >> so what role do you think the u.s. can and should play in this investigation? >> well, i think certainly our leaders are looking to hold an international investigation where you have the right people who are at the table, the right people who are present. and the international protocols really do make space for that. the country of occurrence, the state of occurrence where the accident occurs is designated as generally the lead but you have the state of manufacturer, which is the united states through the boeing aircraft and ntsb as well
8:35 am
as the malaysians who are the state of the operate e. you have a lot of people who are going to be converging together to solve this puzzle and put the pieces back together and determine what happened. >> all right. deborah hersman, thank you. >> thank you. when malaysian flight 370 disappeared back in march, a colorado company allowed the world to search for clues from its satellite photos. this morning that same team is working to capture images of the debris field in ukraine. barry petersen gives us an inside look at digital globe and the next satellite that givens a sharper view when it is needed most. >> reporter: if you want to see the newest eye headed for the sky, it means suiting up in the clean room with walter scott, who founded satellite imaging company's digital globe. he has a parent's pride for his brand-new half million-dollar baby called world view 3.
8:36 am
tell us about that camera. >> all the way top halfway down is camera. >> reporter: the newest satellite will join the company's other five satellites already up there. and for getting them into space, thank scott's persistence. in 1992 as a computer scientist grounded with a broken foot he founded digital globe with $3,000. a few years later they built the first satellite, early bird. is that the one that made you? >> no. that wept up and died. >> second one. >> lost two. >> how did it go that you lost two? >> battling and common sense. >> good insurance and patient investors finally got the first successful satellite off the ground in 2001. today from its longmont, colorado, headquarters digital globe provides imagery for
8:37 am
everyone from the government to google. whatever it is, the pyramids, the eiffel tower, the grand canyon, the great barrier reef, or your backyard, it's captured more than 3 billion scare miles of imagery. mining these pretty pictures for hard information is the job of this man. >> we can look at oil reserves. we can look at strategic oil reserves by taking a satellite shot at an angle of the tanks to measure it. >> so the tops kind of float as the supply goes don. >> right. it's a floating tank measure. so that's very interesting. >> reporter: last march they helped search for malaysian flight 370. 8 million people logged on. now they may help malaysia flight 17 that crashed in the
8:38 am
ukraine. they're applying the same methodology to thinks like tornadoes where first responders face clogged roads and debris. >> how fast can the fire chief know what you've about got? >> 60 to 90 minutes after it. it's complete of all the damaged buildings, damaged roads, damaged vegetation that we've collected. pretty much every year we have a forest fire season and with the smoke, it's very hard to see the ground. well, the short wave infrared sees through the smoke you can actually see what's going on on o the ground while the fire is going on. it's like csi from space. >> reporter: we won't see it but it will watch us and if digital globe has its way, it will make life better and sometimes safer on our world below. for "cbs this morning," barry petersen, longmont, colorado. >> such a great story because, you know, you use things like google map and you never know
8:39 am
quite how did they get that picture to me. >> you never know how they did it. i love digital globe, balanced enthusiasm and lack of common sense. >> and patience and persistence. >> she love add good time on and off the stage. we'll take a look back at elaine stritch and a career stretching from broadway in the 1940s to
