7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." dozens of countries now say isis is a threat they cannot ignore. representatives from those nations are in france this morning to discuss a response. some arab countries are even offering to take part in military action. >> today's meeting comes after another western citizen was beheaded at the hands of isis. the video this week shows the execution of british worker david haines. elizabeth palmer is in london where the video spread widespread outrage. good morning. >> reporter: yes. the video over the weekend gave fresh momentum to the conference in paris this morning and to the u.s.-led effort to form an international alliance against isis. secretary john kerry will lead the american delegation at this meeting. another key leader. iraq's president.
7:04 am
success dpepsd on getting muslim countries to join any annie-isis fight. not only was david haines a british citizen but his executioner, the same man who appeared with steven sotloff and james foley is also thought to be british. james cameron wants to confront the threat of isis. >> islam is for peace. they're not muslims, they're monsters. >> reporter: about 500 british men and even some women have fought with isis. david haines' brother read from a letter, isis is posing a direct threat to the world and to religion. >> we're seeing it more andmore in every walk of life. it is not a race or religious or
7:05 am
ethical issue. it is a human issue. >> reporter: he had gone to syria to help as an aid worker. in their latest video isis said they'd kill again. another british aid worker, lain henning. and as a horrified world has now learned, they mean it. that conference in paris has already produced some action. the french government has asked for and received permission from the iraqi government to overfly isis territory with fighter jets to help prepare for more air strikes. charlie? >> elizabeth, thanks. president obama said no american combat groups will be used on the ground to defeat isis. republican senator lindsey graham slammed that during an interview on sunday. >> this is a political war we're fighting. we're fighting a terrorist army, not an organization. it's going to take an army to beat an army and this idea will never have boots on the ground to beat them in syria. it's fantasy. >> cbs news security contributor
7:06 am
mike morell, former deputy director. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> you heard what lindsey graham said. is he right? >> charlie, there's an old joke about intelligence officers being the skunk at the garden party and that's what i'm going to be this morning for everyone. i think it's wrong to say that we'll never need ground troops in syria, and i also think it's wrong to say that we'll absolutely need them. we just don't know yet. let's see how this strategy works out of using the moderate opposition in syria as our army and then change down the road if necessary. >> so what do you make of the transaction what took place in paris and what that may do to the war effort? >> so i think the fact that the arab states are standing up and saying that they're going to be involved is incredibly important here. it's incredibly important mostly
7:07 am
politically because if the arab states are involved with air strikes and are involved in other way, enthen isis cannot claim that this is a christian war against islam, and that's very important. same role the arabs played in libya, and it had the same effect. >> mike, do you think it will be a significant military contribution by the arab states or is this more of a political signal? >> so i think for some states, their participation will be significant because they have significant capabilities, but i think the most important point here is political. i think in terms of effective ps, norah, the most effective help they can give us is through intelligence, helping us penetrate isis so we understand what the group is all about and so we can find the leadership and remove them from the battlefield. >> do you think isis are the most dangerous group that threaten the region and the world? >> charlie, that is great question.
7:08 am
our focus right now as a nation, our focus as a world is on isis, but we have to remember that there are three other groups out there that i believe pose an even greater threat to the united states. el neutra in syria, can't forget about them. al qaeda in pakistan which still poses a threat and probably the group that poses the greatest threat is al qaeda in yemen. we need to stay focus on all of these groups even after we go after isis. >> mike, thanks so much. thrn mooing thousands of tourists are riding out the strongest hurricane in mexico. hurricane odile had top winds of 120 miles an hour. the storm weakened slightly but remains a category 3. odile is expected to move through the baja, california, peninsula tomorrow. some places could get up to 18 inches of rain. vacationers were stuck in hot
7:09 am
conditions after the power went out. many hotels put them together in crowded stuffy safe rooms. >> meanwhile two raging wildfires in california forced more than a thousand residents to evacuate. the worst fire started sunday in a popular resort area near yosemite national park. the flames damaged or destroyed 21 buildings. further north the rapidly spreading cain fire has burned 21 homes. hot temperatures, drought conditions, and strong winds are fueling both fires. >> this morning, rice attended a game at his former high school in new york city. it was the first public appearance since his coach sidelined him indefinitely. jan crawford is in washington with a controversy dominating
7:10 am
pro football. good morning. >> it provides for a minimum six-game suspension for the first domestic violence offense. of course, the league took a more severe stance when it banned ray rice indefinitely, and on sunday that policy played out in two very different ways. just hours before kickoff, the carolina panthers deactivated defensive end greg hardy, two months after he was convicted of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend. coach ron rivera said he made the call right before the game. >> i made the decision this morning. it was my decision. >> in july a north carolina judge sentenced hardy to 18 months' probation and a 60-day suspended sentence. hardy says he's innocent and is appealing. but on the west coast, it was a different scenario. 49ers' defensive lineman ray mcdonald took the field in san francisco. >> mcdonald is there to make the tackle. >> even though he's under
7:11 am
investigation for an alleged domestic violence incident. >> there's been 14 incidents of violence in the nfl in the last two years. there will be more and more cases and each one will be based individually. >> the ground swell toward the criticism between the nfl and commissioner good yell overflowed on sunday. >> are we supposed to simply separate the game on the field and violent acts off the field? and if we do, what message does that send? >> before the game one women's rights group sent what they hope was a clear message. they flew banners over cleveland and new jersey demanding that goodell resign. >> we'd like to see the nfl first and foremost put in place the policies. people need to know that there are serious ramifications for abusing women. >> now, roger goodell was expected to be at that 49ers game on sunday night. he usually appears at the
7:12 am
opening of a new stadium, but he was not at that game. charlie? >> jan, thanks. another ffl star miss add game sunday because of child abuse. allegations against him. vikings' adrian peterson is accused of whipping his 4-year-old son with a tree brans. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. although he plays in minneapolis, he has a home in texas. he has been charged with a felony and if convicted could face up to two years in prison. the minnesota vikings were without one of their key weapons on sunday. >> the one thing you don't have is the home run ability that peterson brings. >> reporter: former nfl mvp and player peterson was deactivated. before sunday his case is a hot
7:13 am
topic. >> i'm from the south. we do it all the time. every parnent in the south whip. >> he was indicted by a grand jury thursday. >> parents are entitled to discipline their children as they see fit except when the discipline seem as what the community sees as unreasonable. >> nick wright has interviewed to the voluntary interview peterson gave to police. during a visit to peterson's home last may the boy apparently pushed a sib ing off a video game ride. >> and that's what prompted peterson to take his son outside, take down his pants and underwear and removed a switch interest the tree and estimates he hit the boy 10 to 15 times. >> reporter: the boy lived with
7:14 am
his mother in minnesota. >> the boy said at times he had leaves put in his mother. the boy's mother said he described to her that daddy has, quote, a whipping room and a lot of belts. >> reporter: peterson also reportedly sent text messages to the boy's mother ak phenomenaling the incident. >> this is paraphrasing. you're going to be mad at me. i got him once good on the leg. >> reporter: peterson's lawier said he was merely administering the kind of discipline he received as a child. he never meant to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury, hardy said, peterson was released on a $15,000 bond. the vikings are expected to face his deactivation this week. could face a minimum six-game suspension under the nfl's new tougher domestic violence policy. >> thanks. we'll ask the cbs sports analyst about the domestic violence
7:15 am
uproar and the league's response. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." a rare childhood illness that's already sent dozens of kids to the hospital has reached the heavily populated northeast. the enterovirus d-68 is confirmed in eight states. health officials suspect it's spreading to other areas. doctor, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> how concerned are you on how quickly this virus is spreading? >> it's spreading very, very quickly. children coming back to school within a class space on top of each other provides a wonderful environment for this to spread. it looks like it's moving into new england. we'll see if it even covers more of the south in the next week or so. >> the virus is rare and not too much is known about it. what concerns you? >> well, what concerns us is we don't know that much about the
7:16 am
virus, but fortunately, although it makes a lot of children sick with fever and covering and sneezing and the like. a few of them have to be admitted to the hospital because they're having trouble breathing, and it can also cause as ma attacks. fortunately no children has died. >> i assume there are symptoms you should look for. what else should you look for in terms of your child? >> high fever, difficulty breathing, a child with a rash. that's this virus's picture. and if your child obviously is having some trouble breathing or you've had an as mthma attack, bring them to the doctor. >> dr. schaffner, thank you so much. >> thanks, charlie. hillary clinton returned to iowa. she and her husband attended a democratic gathering and people want to know if she's running for 2016.
7:17 am
nancy cordes was there. she joins us from the state capitol. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. it's not just that hillary clinton came here to iowa for the first important all-american caucuses. it's that the harkin tradition has a tradition of launching democratic campaigns. >> hello, iowa. i'm baaa-ck. >> a cheerful but koyie hillary clinton took center stage at a jam-packed attraction that had the signs of a campaign stochp . >> it is true. i am thinking about it. but for today, that is not why i'm here. i'm here for the steak.
7:18 am
>> the last time she came for the steak was in 2007 when she was running. >> good afternoon, iowa. >> her top five democratic opponents were there too, including then senator barack obama. at this year's event everyone treated her like a candidate from the supporters on the rope line to the dozens of volunteers who flew in to hand out buttons and signs in this key caucus state. >> does this whet your appetite for another campaign? >> oh, we're just here today to support democrats. >> iowa was supposed to be the state that cemented clinton's front-runner status in 2008. instead she came in a surprise third and her campaign fully never recover. in her book she called that loss excruciating which may help explain why she hasn't been back to iowa until now. >> it's really great to be back. let's not let another seven years go by. thank you all very much.
7:19 am
>> clinton is not the only potential candidate who is here courting iowan 16 months before the caucuses. vice president joe biden who is also mulling a run will be in iowa later this week. and guess what, norah and charlie, he hosted the harkin steak fry last year. >> thank you. >> it's clear she's paying more attention than in 2008. >> it's extraordinary to think it's been seven years since she was in iowa. >> lots of republicans. >> they didn't talk to the press. both clintons were there. they were flipping steak. they were both there. clinton was flipping a vegan burger. is rand paul

7:33 am
had isis in charge in damascus now because they've been arming and creating a safe haven for them. as it is now, i think they're more of a threat because of the armed islamists in syria. >> have you changed your views on aid to israel? >> excuse me? >> have you changed your views on aid to israel? >> i've always said don't give aid to give to anyone if we don't have it. but i've a also aid said as begin to pare down, why don't we start with the countries burning our flag. i'd take the same position that netanyahu has taken about foreign aid, that even israel should one day be independent of it. >> the "washington pot" has a piece call your evolving views on policy interest and pointed out in june when asked about air
7:34 am
strikes against isis, you said i'm not sure where the clear-cut american interest isset and now you're criticizing the president saying he should have acted more diseasishly and now you support. r it. let many ask you, what is the clear cut? >> what i have said is the president is required by the constitution to come to congress. so since the beginning of my public life, i've always said congress declares war, not the president. it's the president who's changed his position. back when he ran for office he said no president should unilaterally go to war without the consent and authority of congress. i still maintain that view and always have maintain thad view. >> back to norah's question about it. you described yourself as an isolationist. they call you a real list. how do you see it? >> they say you're changed. you're no longer an isolationist, you're on two siesd of the issue.
7:35 am
all i've been sayingcy i'm not an isolationist. i've looked at every incident whether we need to be involved. i look at it reluctantly. i don't want to be involved in war. i am like most americans. i am influenced by the beheadings of americans and now a british journalist. i think it's going to unite the world against isis. but i have steadfastly been against hillary clinton and president obama's plan in syria. >> even though some argue that it might have prevented isis becoming what it is now. >> they're absolutely wrong. for example, had we bombed syria last yearing had the president actually got what he wanted and what hillary clinton wanted and to bomb the heck out of assad, my guess is isis would now be in damascus. >> the issue was not bombing. the issue was whether they should support the pre-syrian forces in syria and if so, they would have been likely for isis
7:36 am
to get as strong as it got. >> actually, charlie, the issue was both bombing assad and arming the rebels. 've been doing both at the behest of hillary clinton and president obama. i would say one of the insightful piece of news i got last weekend is some so-called moderate rebels have signed a cease-fire with isis. really their enmihm is assad, so they don't care what isis does. most of the arms we've given to them has wound up in the hands of isis or we miss takingly give it to the radicals. it's made our problem much more difficult. >> do you want to be defined within your party as a different kind of republican? because you have suggested to some iowan that perhaps the party was stressing only some
7:37 am
issues, same-sex marriage which you had morals on. >> i want to reach out to new people we haven't been reaching out to. i frankly think we are the party of voting rights, we're the party of the billing rights and emancipation that we should be the party reaching out to the african-american public saying, hey, give us another chance. many of the libertarian issues are saying, you know what, your government should always allow you do have a trial or a lawier. these things are important whether you've ever been a nigh north, whether it's an ideological one or racial one that we need protections against an overzealous government and i think lit resonate as we take it to new communities. >> how close are you to announcing you're going to run? that e've been the iowa a couple of times and new hampshire. i'm going to continue to travel to grow the party to whip.
7:38 am
i'm going to continue to go to place others haven't gone. even been to howard, urban league, berkeley, of all places. >> so you've been to a lot of places. how close are you announcing that you want to run? >> next season we'll make our decision. >> good to see you. >> thank you. an actress who appeared in the movie django unchained was humiliated as she was handcuffed by police. watts said the two of them were kissing inside the car when the police arrived. they mistook her as a prostit e prostitute. watts was released after they identified her and determined no crime had been committed. >> they publicly humiliate me, sit me on the sidewalk, find they have nothing on me, and they realize they have to let me go because i'm not bad person and i haven't done anything wrong.

it is monday, september 15th, 2014. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including bill cowher of cbs sports. the former steelers coach looks at the nfl's domestic violence problem and how to fix it. but here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> they'll form around international alliance against isis. >> i think it's wrong to say we'll never need ground troops in syria and i also think it's wrong to say we'll absolutely need them. we just don't know yet. let's see how this strategy works out. >> hurricane odile made landfall
8:01 am
with top winds of 125 miles an hour. >> meanwhile two raging wildfires in california forced more than 2 thousand residents to evacuate. >> the official policy was adopted last month and on sunday that policy played out in two very different ways. >> peterson has been charged with a felony and if convicted could face up to two years in prison. >> children coming back to school provides a wonderful environmental for this respiratory virus to spread. >> you're described as an isolationist but those close you do say, nope, you're a real list. how do you see this? >> they say, you changed, you're no longer an isolationist. you're now on two sides of the issue. all i've been saying all my life is i'm not an isolationist. >> smart people do dumb things. >> smart people. allegedly. >> allegedly.
8:02 am
>> charlie, a little splenda with your coffee? >> i never churn anybody disabled. charlie rose along with norah o'donnell and gayle king. the united states is pushing more countries including arab nations to join the fight against the terror group. >> now, the meeting comes after isis released another murderous video. this weekend it shows the beheading of a british aid worker david haines. prime minister david cameron says they will hunt down his killers. >> the ray rice suspension and paccusations against other players like adrian peterson dominated the pregame show sthoos that guy should never be on the field again and i don't want to hear how he grew up, what he learned. this was a whipping of a 4-year-old boy, for god's sake. >> the parents thought they're the role models. we really don't know these guys. you see them on television.
8:03 am
in fairness, we never brag about the good guys. when a jock makes a mistake, we make him the poster child. >> whether you like it or not, kids are looking up to you, looking up and emulating you. to me there's a responsibility that goes with that, that you're on that platform. >> last word there came from bill cowher of cbs sports. he was the steelers head coach for 16 years. he lead them to a super bowl title in 26 years. this season bill cowher adds "thursday night football" to his duties. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> interesting discussion as more players caught up in this ray rice wake if you will. really should football players be role models? >> you are, norah. it's not a choice. there's an obligation that goes with that. it's not for everybody. said before, should you be held to a higher standard, yes, because that's who people are looking up to. >> why hasn't the nfl or coaches held their players to a hire
8:04 am
standard? >> i think unfortunately that's been the case. there's been a lot of inconsist senncy. ly say this, ray rice, yand peterson, you're getting desired results. that is the only deterrent you're going have to these players. >> i want to come back to the question that's very important but also these questions that are on the table. should roger goodell will resign and do you think he will? >> i think robert mueller was hired as an investigative reporter and you have two owners in john mara and art rooney. they've gone through three commissioners. they will put the nfl first. i think we've got to find out exactly what they find in this report to see then what the appropriate action would be. >> in a court of public opinion, mr. goodell isn't fairing so well. based on what you need with the league, the player, the coaches, the owners, what are you hearing and how can it be an independent investigation if they're paying for it? >> you know, robert mueller's
8:05 am
reputation is at stake at first. again, you look at the owners. they're going to have their connection to a lost people because they're very prominent people. but, again, you're taking two family-based owners who have the nfl in the forefront of what they think is going to be done best. i'm not concerned about that. to me the bottom line is let's make sure we get some kind of uniform guidelines because that's what's missing in the nfl. >> can we talk about today's news which is ray rice plans to appeal the suspension to the nfl players' association. here's what i found interesting in reading what goodell said in response to the nfl p.a. he says the video show s starkingly different things than what you represent. again, the same point he made to us, that ray rice and his
8:06 am
representatives miss represent what happened on that video. then, again, we learn, no, ray rice told the commissioner, no, i hit her, i hit her in the face. which is it? >> again, it goes to int interpretati interpretation. when you have any kind of indictment, we need to take the players off the field, find out -- >> when they're accused? >> only an indictment. ray mcdonald was not indict. he played with san francisco last night. you've got adrian peterson, ray rice. they were indicted. take them off the field. then if there is kuhn vikz, put the appropriate suspension to that. take them off the field and still pay them. you're going to have to have collaboration between the n nfl p.a. and get this done. >> if you erie deactivated you're still paid, correct? >> unless you're suspended, yes. >> there's a teaching moment that the nfl and america have to be much, much more aware how much domestic violence there, is whether it's a child, a wife, or
8:07 am
simply a woman -- >> you know, charlie, i woke up this morning through these circumstances but it's having an effect. if i'm a player with the nfl world, i'm going to think twice about what i do. we're in a transparent world. we can't do even what i did back when i was player in the national football league. you have to be careful where you go and who you're seen with. it's a privilege. if you can't give that up, it's not for everybody, get another job. if you're coming into the national football league, accept the responsibilities that go with it. you're a role model never #matter what they say because that's the platform you're on. >> bill cowher, thank you so much. >> thanks for having me here. >> you should note "thursday night football" is on cbs. tim cook is putting his mark
8:08 am
on apple and opening up more about the country. we talked about apple's new products and the growing issue of user prove sichlt he said google is apple's direct competitor and he said the search giant is different because of the way it collects consumer data. >> we've taken a very different view of this than a lot of different companies have. our view is when we design a new service, we try not to collect data. so we another reading your e-mail. we're not reading your imessage. if the government laid a s&p on us to get your imessage, we can't provide it. it's encrypted right on the key. so it's sort of -- the door is closed. >> yeah. >> but our business, charlie, is based on selling these. our business is not based on having information about you. you're not our product.
8:09 am
our product is -- are these and this watch and macs and so forth. and so we run a very different company. i think everyone has to ask how do companies make their money. follow the money. and if they're making money mainly by collecting gobs of personal data, i think you have a right to be worried and you should -- you should really understand what's happening with that data, and the companies, i think, should be very transparent about it. from our point of view, you can see what we orr doing on the credit card thing. we don't want it. we're not in that business. i'm offended by lots of it. and so, you know, i think people have a right to privacy. so i -- and i think that's going to be a very key
8:10 am
next year or so and will reach higher and higher levels of urgency as more is accidents happen. >> you can see the rest of that interview with tim cook tonight on my pbs program. >> i already set my recorder. bile sleeping but i set my recorder. martha stewart wrote a lifestyle empire. now she's fending off her rivals. the story behinind her very pointed

bacteria, in which case antibiotics will help. but in 57% of cases where kids were brought to the doctor with these symptoms, they were prescribed an antibiotic. basically it's twice that prescribed. it's never a good thing. >> seems like we're always hearing stories about kids being overprescribe. what makes this different? >> this gives us numbers. it signifies how significant the problem. >> why is it happening? >> the bomb line sit's very difficult to tell whether or not a common infection is caused by an infection or virus. it's an imperfect virus. in the office we have a few tests, but most of the time we have to take an educated guest. we look at how severe the symptoms are and do an exam in the office.
