>> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota, let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." the cia is bracing for the release today of a highly controversial senate report on the agency in a few hours. the focus is on so-called enhancement interrogation techniques used on 9/11. >> marines in american embassies around the world are on high alert this morning. nancy cordes is on capitol hill where critics say the report is incorrect and could be dangerous. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. that's one of the reasons why it seems like this report for so long would never see the light of day. it's been the crux of battles with the cia and the white house for weeks. >> reporter: the senate intelligence committee chaired by dianne feinstein has spent
six years reviewing millions of cia documents. the resulting report is 6,000 pages. a 500-page declassified summary will be relessed this morning. it's expected to say that text like sleep deprivation and enclosure in small places and procedures like waterboarding. the intelligence community backed by republicans has already begun to push back. in op-eds, in interviews and in first person accounts by former spies. in a statement monday night, republican senators marco rubio and jim risch called the report irresponsible and warning it could jeopardize relations with foreign parties. the white house acknowledged that risk but said the president wants that report released. >> the administration has taken the prudent steps to ensure that the proper security precaution,
in place at u.s. facilities around the globe. >> reporter: senator feinstein has always maintained a thorough accounting of tactics used in 2006 will make the u.s. more safe in the long run. >> we be able to ensure that a brutal program of detention and interrogation will never again be considered for permitted. >> reporter: to give you a sense of how explosive this report is, at one point, the intelligence committee accused the cia of spying on committee investigators as they did this work. the cia director later apologized. the findings being released today are only backed by the democrats on the committee. republicans will be releasing their own findings. their own 120-page report this morning as well. charlie. >> bob orr is also in washington with the potentially fallout about his report. good morning. >> this is going to be an ugly
report. it's going to be put out there for the whole world to see. a fairly graphic picture of what the cia had to do in the face of 9/11. a lot of people are going to be upset by this, saying in some cases cia officers went over the line and tortured al qaeda detainees. the problem is, this is not just being released here in the united states. it's a worldwide lease. the fear is that terrorist organizations may see this and use it as propaganda to recruit and a precursor to other attacks. >> so at the end, to put everybody on notice? >> yeah, that's right. there are marines standing by around the world at embassies and consulates. we also told our foreign partners a lot of countries operated in this detainee program. and they did so secretly. we told them, be prepared because some of the details in this report will out some of our friends. and also there's a danger here, according to the cia, if you
really read it carefully, you can figure out who some of the covert officers might have been. there's a real fear of the intelligence agency to put others in danger and put others in fear of attacks. and others saying we need to get this out. >> bob, we heard about vice president cheney defending these techniques. what about the white house do they agree with the conclusion of this report that the cia repeatedly lied to the administration officials about the extent and efficacy of the techniques? >> i'm not sure, norah, whether or not they'll go as fares the cia lied. the president made clear, he said we tortured -- he basically has he rejected the enhancement interrogation techniques that he ended. it pretty much stopped in 2006. the program was outlawed in 2009. this idea of when they effective or not, that's an ongoing
debate. the cia is going to point to cases where it produced actual intelligence. a powerful nor'easter packing a dangerous mix of rain, wind and snow is gaining strength at this hour. some places could see more than a half a foot of snow today. don dahler is on the jersey shore where flooding is also a concern there. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. winter may still be 12 days away, but much of the east coast is getting an early taste of it with cold temperatures and high winds. they picked this berm up last night to try to stop beach erosion. i have to tell you, this feels like a hurricane out here since it's really cold. this area seaside heights was slammed two years ago by superstorm sandy. there's a real fear that flooding is a risk again because they're getting 2 to 3 inches of rain on top of rising tide.
now inland, it's going to be more of a heavy wet snow. but the roads could be icy which is going to make the commute a nightmare. unfortunate list, this nor'easter is not moving very fast. it's going to sit over this area probably until about thursday. charlie. the massive storm is affecting air travel around the east coast. around 200 flights were cancelled. about a dozen states are in the path of the nor'easter. meteorologist danielle niles is tracking this route. >> charlie, good morning to you. and everybody. yeah, we've got a big storm advisory here. winter storm warnings, we've had dozens of accidents with icy roads. localized flooding will be a concern later on and minor coastal flooding and beach erosion as that kicks up.rain is going to go to southern new england. snow all the way to the canadian border, areas of new york. heavy wet snow at that. that big upper level low sits and spins over the northeast for
the next several days. so that will mean additional snowfall amounts through the middle part of the week that are going to top out over a foot in the highest ranges of central new york and maine. norah, back to you. protesters aren't letting out this morning in speaking out against police brutality. demonstrations stretched from, new york to california some more peaceful than others. vinita nair is at the barclays center in new york where others trying to upstage the royal couple. >> reporter: good morning. some of the protesters said they wanted to take the spotlight away from the prince and princess, that the death of eric garner is remembered. eric garner's last words "i can't breathe" have become a rallying sign for protesters. hundreds gathered outside of the barclays center in new york

unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app, call 1-888-xarelto, or visit goxarelto.com.
