welcome to "cbs this morning." much of the south is shivering from another blast of snow, sleet, or ice. it's the third winter storm in less than two weeks. customers have lost power. alabama, georgia and the carolinas have declared states of emergency. >> and it's been snowing all night in washington where federal offices are opening late because of the storm. vinita nair is in durham north carolina because of the snow. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it is the heavy wet stuff. take a look up at those power lines. you can see they're completely coated and it's really starting to affect the trees. we've been hearing loud pops and snaps and we see tree branches come tumbling down. the storm is making it hard for just about anything to stay on these southern roads, sidelining trucks, spinning tires, and
overturning cars. plows in north carolina are pushing their way through the mess clearing aside the cold slush. >> we're anticipating a very very tough storm. >> reporter: state troopers responded to nearly 3,000 accidents in 36 hours and on wednesday governor mccrory urged people to stay home. it's not just the tar heel state that's dealing with the elements. fog, rain, snow and freezing temperatures created these treacherous conditions in northern georgia wednesday. two cars collided with a semi bringing traffic to a crawl. low visibility plagued tennessee roads with snow accumulating at up to two inches an hour. >> oh man. >> drivers in texas made their way through the accumulation where a bus carrying three people landed on its side after hitting ice. luckily everyone was okay. as we speak to you right now,
some light snow is starting to fall again, but, of course all of this snow has to be cleaned up. we've been watching crews go down the road. right now as many as 2,000 people and 13 tons of salt. guys, i have to say, just being out here that might be a generous and conservative number of what it will take to clean up. >> vinita, thank you. it has nothing to do with the news but please come back and bring that coat. you look great. wednesday's pileups on interstate 95 injured at least 17 people. more than 70 people were involved including a tractor-trailer and a school bus. this morning a man is being identified. he appeared in several videos carrying out the beheadings last year. mark phillips is monitoring it from london. good morning. >> good morning. it's been obvious to anyone who
has heard him known as jihadi john was from britain. the accent gave him away and this is what he sounds like. >> this is an american citizen of your country. >> now according to two news agencies, the bbc and the washington coast the cold-hearted masked man with theis mohammed emwazi. he grew up in london and went to college with a degree in computer programming. he's believed to have later joined the self-proclaimed islamic state. the site reports friends and family familiar with the case it's been assumed for some time the police knew the man's identity. they're still not confirming it as others are being held and their lives are at risk.
more lives were lost. 17 militants were killed. naming jihadi john as mohammed emwazi will no doubt lead to an investigation of who he was involved with here in the case to fight and in his case to murder in the name of islam. norah? >> mark, thank you so much. this morning three men are accused of plotting with syria. they were possibly planning to care out attacks here new state. all three are in custody. jeff pegues with how investigators tracked them down. good morning. >> good morning. it's not clear how much was just talk but it was enough for investigators to consider the three men as a threat. not only for domestic plans for domestic attacks but there was also talk of hijacking a plane and joining the u.s. military to
help filter information to isis. two of the suspects appeared in court wednesday accused of attempting to join the militant group isis. according to court documents the two wanted to join isis in syria by traveling through turkey, and if they couldn't get there, they would carry out an attack on american soil. >> if they were not able to go they would seek to acquire weapons here handguns machine guns, and seek to attack very specifically police officers. >> the fbi investigation began last august after one of the suspects posted a threat to president obama on a militant website. is it possible to commit ourselves as dedicated martyrs anyway while here he wrote? what i am saying is to shoot obama and then get shot ourselves, that will strike fear in the hearts of infidels.
he was arrested at the armtd moments before he could secure a flight. a second man was arrested in his apartment. a third man is being held without bail accused of helping to secure their plane tickets. >> these young men were detained by the fbi. presented without counsel. >> reporter: more than 150 residents traveled to or tried to reach iraq to fight alongside the militants. >> those people exist in every state. i have home grown violence extreme state investigations in every single state. >> for more than six months the fbi monitored the three men with help of an informant. according to investigators they also talked about planning a bomb in new york's coney island.
gayle? >> thank you. majority leader mitch mcconnell broke an impasse wednesday. he put language to block president obama's act on immigration in a separate bill. it's not clear if speaker john boehner and the house will support mcconnell's approach. it's opened up a gop rift. up until yesterday the two most powerful republicans in washington had reportedly not spoken to each other in two weeks. bill plante is in the white house while the president is pushing ahead with hitz plan. good morning. >> good morning. the president pitched his plan to an audience at a florida university. mr. obama says he's confident that his immigration plan will survive.
>> we're going to be as aggressive atz we can because not only law is on our side but history is on our side. >> the president pushed back against the order and republicans who want to do away with it. >> if mr. mcconnell, the leader of the senatespeaker of the house john boehner want to have that vote they can do what they want. i will veto that vote because i know what we're doing is the right thing to do. >> under the bill children born in the u.s. would be allowed to stay and protect those brought in illegally when they were children, but the republicans maintain it oversteps the president's authority and threaten to block funding for the department of homeland security unless the immigration actions are repeal. >> senate democrats have stood in the way for three week over a bill that's been debated and
passed. so until they do something, we're in a wait-and-see mode. >> but the president said he won't back down. >> this is going to be solved because at some point there's going to be a president rodriguez or there's going to be a president chin. the country is a nation of immigrants. >> now, of course, it's no coincidence that the president delivered his speech in florida, a state that's mostly hispanic. he told voters to ask him this question are you really going deport 11 million people. norah? >> bill, outside a beautiful snowy white house. >> picture postcard. >> yeah. thank you, bill. a new law to legalize weed in washington, d.c., went into effect overnight, and depending on who you believe, the district of columbia is wouf three states where you can use it legally or
it's where elected officials can go to jail. julianna goldman is there to explain the clash. good morn. >> reporter: good morning. some members of congress are calling for the arrests when they arrive here later this morning but so far the justices department has no plan to take them up on it. >> the law will go into effect one minute after midnight. >> reporter: she surrounded herself wednesday with a defiant support. allowing people to carry up to 2 ounces of pot and grow six marijuana plants on private problem. facing what she calls bullying from jason cha fit. >> i have a lot to do. being in jail would bmt a good
thing. we believe there are reasonable ways to resolve those things without us threatening him nor he us. >> in a letter cha fis has asked for it. >> up to two years' prison time. >> republican andy harris wrote the language to define the laws. but officials say there's a loophole in the language because it was enacted by voters before congress stepped in. harris said it may fall to the court or even the next president. >> the statute of limitations is five years. these government officials, if they take that chance now, they're going to be looking over their shoulder for five years. >> if our mayer or any member of our city government is arrested for doing their jobs the entire
city is going to rise up. >> like other states that have legalized pop it's still illegal to pie or sell it's illegal to smoke in public and on federal land and illegal to carry on federal land. so don't think about lighting up on the steps of the lincoln memoirrial memorial. gayle? >> we can say we've been warned. thank you. the pilots have been warned. they cite recent things. in one instance a pilot had to use a pullup maneuver to avoid landing in ground. another landed with fewer fuel reserves than legislature requires because safety is a requirement. a construct worker is in the hospital. it happened wednesday during demolition of the 3-story
management. he rode down the falling debris by standing on a scaffold. >> as a marngs he's lucky. >> they plan to file a new claim. he's under fire for spending habits that range from doing the tango in argentina to partying with ariannaa grande. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. most lawmakers are reluctant to admit they do anywhere. but aaron schock has made no. >> he's one of the rising stars and top fund-raisers but his donors may not have known he would spend some of the millions he brought in on p90x exercise video, a stay at a five-star
greek hotel and a photographier to capture his life on the go. >> it's clear he likes to live a very lavish lifestyle. >> she represents is. claiming he sold his illinois townhouse to a top donor for an outsized profit. >> when it comes to selling your house for well over $100,000 above its fair market value, the rules are clear that's a gift. that's a contribution. you can't do that. >> schock's expenser tasteses first hit the spotlight earlier this month when the "washington post" showed photos of his office with a "downton abbey" scene. he said he would pay for the remodel but only after blowing off histhem.
>> taylor saft said haters are i got to hate but voters are going to vote and indicters are going to indict. >> reporter: he's a crisis consultant who's worked with politicians and celebrities. >> you never know how constituents are going to react. sometimes they're horrified by allegations. other times they feel that someone in washington t elites are picking on them and they rally behind the person. so it's way too early to determine where it ooh goengs to go. >> they're used to his high-flying style. white water rafting in the app dees surfing in hawaii doing thegentina and posing with ariana grande. he even posted shirtless in "men's health."
>> if you focus on other things other than the job he's been given, you'll probably be out of a job. his new p.r. team says some of his spending may be eye-opening but it is now in line with the rules and they now have lawyers poring through the spending documents just to make sure. norah? >> thank you. >> he seems to enjoy a good old par tay. people are watching. >> indeed. it's 7:19. ahead t brother of american sniper chris kyle tells
that puzzles scientists. >> the news is right back here on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by fastsigns. more than fast, more than signs. i have the worst cold with this runny nose. i better take something. dayquill cold and flu doesn't treat your runny nose. seriously? alka-seltzer plus cold and cough fights your worst cold symptoms plus your runny nose. oh, what a relief it is. introducing the citi® double cash card. it's a cash back win-win. with 1% when you buy and 1% as you pay. with two ways to earn on puchases, it makes a lot of other cards seem one-sided.

>> take us to the courtroom when you knew the man who killed your brother was going to prison. >> you know we waited a long time to hear it. we had talked earlier, up to that point we always had that feeling, that sense that it was going to go our way, but you never know. you can't spend your entire time trying to watch them or read them. they're not going to show their hand. so we felt good up until the trial -- or the jury stepped out to deliver rate. we had no idea at that point where it was going to go and that's when the thoughts start racing and you just pray that it's going to go right. >> does it since seem to have paint add compelling case for insanity?
did you think he was insane? >> i never did, i never did. >> even your own brother said this dude was straight up nuts. >> i used that term all the time. chris used to use that term all the time. if he would have thought he was nuts, if he had a little bit of an idea that he was nuts it wouldn't have turned out that way. >> he would have never taken him to the shooting lainch. >> he wouldn't have taken him to the shooting range. >> did that capture your brother? is that the man that you knew? >> for the most part yes. bradley did a phenomenal job in getting chris and getting his heart and putting it out there. >> what was it like for you looking at eddie ray routh, sitting and watching him ever day. >> that was one of the hardest
things i've endone. seeing him in there, just no remowers. that was very difficult. there was a lot of times i wanted to get up but you know, he's not worth my time. >> i think one of the hardest things, too, about this story is chris survived those really tough deployment and came home to help veterans who were suffered from ptsd. talk about your brother eerks you know deep desire to help other mem and women who served? >> he was like the way he was in country. he wanted everybody to have a chance to come home and once they came home then he didn't want it to stop there. so he was helping on and off the field. and whenever most military members are in held to that higher standard of fit ps and of course, that helps our middle being as well.

any of this not true? any of this you wish to correct? >> as far as being untrue i toy think there's anything untrue. the hype, he hated the hooich. >> hated it. >> haited it. and rngs ewe knowthe trial was dugged the american sniper trial. chris would be upset about that. it was not about the american sniper. it was about chris kyle and chad littlefield. everybody forgets chad and who he was. he wasn't a veteran but he had the heart and soul as a and would help as many as possible. >> if you were the write the epitaph for your brother, what
would you say? >> i don't think we have enough time, but he was larger than life. he was a great father rngs a great brother, and great son to my parents. my kids love him. they still talk about him to this day, you know. but he cared about everybody, gave everybody a chance and gave his life doing what he loved. >> yeah. what do you miss most about him? >> just his -- i guess his smartass little self i guess. >> you guys did fight a bit when you were younger as all brothers

tea leoni returns to studio good morning everyone i'm ukee washington. we continue to have our eye on this system coming to the area the here's katie. >> this storm system is achieving, as expected in some spots, and, not really so much in others. it kind of depend where you are. when you look at the radar looks can be very deceiving. we have talk about this all the time. what you see isn't always what you get the through southeastern pennsylvania, much of what looks like light snow it is not actually falling to the ground rather it the is evaporating as it falls but what you do have have in new jersey and southern delaware especially are those darker shade of purple. so yes, you are seeing snow there. he have i have been getting reports of whipping wind and reduced visibility and snow covered roadways. so keep that in mind if your travels takes you to the southern half of new jersey and basically anywhere in delaware, for a all of those
problems, here. but as you go into pennsylvania, it is just not the same animal because we are running out of moisture to work with in that zone. this morning's snow is just that. it will be winding down no later than lunchtime, and we will drop down in the teens here tonight real quick check for you on the eyewitness weather seven day forecast we will brighten up with time over next few days and ease up on the thermometer. lets get a check of how it looks outside where snow is coming outside send it over to justin finch live from the mobile weather lab hi justin. >> reporter: hi there, katie. we just jumped off garden state parkway to blustery conditions. look at these road out there. they have been cleared before but lots of packed snow on the street. if you are going too fast that becomes a dangerous combination. go nice and easy as we are nowes specially as your visibility reduce necessary those areas as that snow has been blown every which way by whipping wind out here this morning. we have seen lots of major roads being cleared, here in south jersey but your side streets, neighborhood streets,
those are in the quite there yet. take it easy right out the door before you even get on to the highways this morning. we are looking at, around seeing the same things out here, plow trucks are out here knocking the snow out but the snow is coming down steadily and they cannot always keep up, but they are out there, brining and salting, where needed so be careful as a driver this morning making your way to work and school because you never know what you might get outside the door vittoria. >> thanks very much, justin, appreciate it. >> just continue is traveling in new jersey. if you are traveling a few new jersey majors we have speed restrictionness regard to the weather. traveling on new jersey turnpike, the garden state parkway, we are seeing speed restriction there is 45 miles an hour and if you are traveling on area bridges we have speed restrictions at 35 miles an hour and in delaware, we have speed restrictions of 45 miles an hour as well if you are traveling on 495 as a result of the weather so give yourself more time and as justin said never approach it
lightly. use a lot of extra caution. we are on to the platt bridge where we are dealing with an accident here on the westbound side of the platt, so heading from south philadelphia a up and over the bridge if you are traveling in this area you you will notice left lane block, notice backup on pen rose and a slight gaper delay as you travel eastbound on this bridge. the as we move new to the schuylkill expressway eastbound you're delayed from center city. you will a he fine delays throughout western suburbs and westbound making your way from university to the vine and then again roosevelt boulevard all the way beyond gladwynn. the the schuylkill looks like the the the schuylkill this morning and so does i-95 southbound jammed from the northeast down to the vine and traveling on the southbound side of the roosevelt boulevard you are delayed as you make your way from broad street through to the schuylkill but before you get there southbound on the roosevelt boulevard just beyond pratt we have an accident there and it is compromising a lane. be mine full of delays there as well. ukee. next update 8:55. up next on cbs this morning gin making a come back for more local news weather traffic and sports we are on
