better things than for rheumatoid arthritis. before you and your rheumatologist move to a biologic, ask if xeljanz is right for you. xeljanz is a small pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well. xeljanz can reduce joint pain and swelling in as little as two weeks, and help stop further joint damage. xeljanz can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma, and other cancers have happened. don't start xeljanz if you have an infection. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts, and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened. your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz, and monitor certain liver tests. tell your doctor if you were in a region where fungal infections are common, and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. xeljanz can reduce the symptoms of ra, even without methotrexate. ask your rheumatologist about xeljanz.

3:34 am

>> next on "the young and the restless"... >> hilary: i was seriously injured, and the person who held me -- they were just trying to save me. >> colin: i got a business proposition that might suit someone of your particular talents. >> lily: what are you doing here? -- captions by vitac -- captioning provided by bell dramatic serial company, sing and compete. targeting venues where people come together from around the world killing citizens of nearly
3:36 am
20 countries, including america. it's an attack on the very idea that people of different races, religions and backgrounds can live together in peace. in short, this was not only a strike against one of the world's great cities, it was an attack against the world itself. it's the same madness and to slaughter the innocent from nigeria to the sinai and from lebanon to iraq. it is a scourge which harms all of us. that's why for more than a year, the united states, france and our coalition of some 65 nations have been united in one mission, to destroy these isil terrorist and defeat they vile etiology. >> what is your reaction to turkey shooting down russian plane today? >> first of all we're still getting the details of what happened and i expect to be in
3:37 am
communications, potentially, directly with the president over time over the next several days. turkey, like every country, has the right to defend its territory and its air space. i think it's very important, right now, for us to make sure that both the russians and the turks are talking to each other to find out exactly what happened and take measures to discourage any kind of es s escalati escalation. i do think that this points to an on-going problem with the russian operations, in the sense that they are operating very close to a turkish border and they are going after moderate opposition that are supported by, not only turkey but a wide-range of countries. >> the "cbs overnight news" will
3:38 am
be right back.

3:40 am
>> in the wake of paris terror attacks france has stepped up its bombing campaigns in syria and iraq. on the ground the fight has been left the kurdish fighters iraqi security forces. and shiite militia backed by iran. there are also a handful of american officers helping to >> we're in the combined operations center. >> >> general thurston where iraqis and americans have been sitting side by side. for more than a year. thousands of calls for u.s. and coalition air strikes have come through here >> who is bringing intelligence that feeds these coals? >> we have national intelligence, everything is fusing in different parts of this building and coming to this
3:41 am
strike zone, that's where it's checked and coordinated and approved. >> on their screens live feeds from drones that record every minute of the war. and seens from inside islamic state health territoriy that like this one in a town of western iraq that they were watching on sent 11 this year. these are isis photographs that general thurston confirmed were from the same scene. the town square, 12 islamic state fighters were preparing to execute this man. >> there are small children brought into the very front of the crowd and we sat there helplessly, calls are coming for strike, they're going to assassinate this person in front of these children. we can't because they're children and we had to watch that. >> moments later, the execution took place and the victim lay dead. shot by this man, once in the
3:42 am
head and once more in the body. the american drone stayed with the 12 terrorists. >> we followed them as they got into three vehicles and drove out of town. then they made a mistake because they always made mistakes and all 12 went into the building on the side of the river and none of those 12 came out. >> gurston told us tht the air strike that destroyed that building. it's more than one of 5,000 strikes to support the iraqi army and kurdish forces on the ground over the past year. yet the islam state remains entrenched in its strong hold. this was the first city to fall in january 2014. 5 months later most of the country's second largest city fell and the iraqi army collapsed. islamic state terrorist quickly advanced toward the iraqi capitol attempting to encircle baghdad infiltrating towns and villages on the out skirts.
3:43 am
with the iraqi army largely absent from the the fight it was the shiite my till lants backed by shiite's that helped push back the militants of the islamic state. one of the shiite militants that led the counter attack that led the organization. it's known here as the population mobilization forces. after months of negotiation they agreed to take us up to the front. treacherous journey we could not have made without them. for more than a year, the islamic state held this ground, but our fighters told us they fought hard to win it back. now, through desolate landscape, scarred by recent battles they were taking us toward their front line just outside boluga. a islamic state base for almost two years.
3:44 am
>> we're going up to part of the front line that's closest, we're told that this point is only a mile away and the biggest threat here is from snipers. >> it was in 2004 that 82 americans died fighting the bloodiest battle of the iraq war. the local commander here showed us a tunnel islamic state terrorists used to move undetected from an american plane. he showed us exploited bomb they left behind. this river, he said, it is the distant between his fighters and the enemy. this is a lot of spare grounds, huh? >> that's about two months. >> this is about two months of shooting? so they used the buildings to cover and they come and attack in small groups. >> sometimes they fight from the houses and sometimes they use the trees and the bushes for
3:45 am
cover. >> the tasks that lies ahead of trying to liberate the major city still occupied by the enemy is daunting. it remains the eventual goal of their lead who was among the first to rush into battle against the islamic state or die. >> i consider myself a fighter defending my country against diesh with all that i can. >> one of the most powerful and feared men in iraq. known for his brutal attacks on the iraq population in the civil war that followed the u.s. invasion. this is him as a young man in footage from iranian tv he spent much of his life in exile in iran. and he still has the ties to iranian regime.
3:46 am
>> everyone who fights along aside us is afraid. everyone who fights alongside diesh is an enemy. >> so that means america in this fight is your friend? >> no, only if they seriously fight diesh. >> are you saying they're not seriously fighting diesh now? >> frankly, well below expectations. we have struck thousands and thousands of positions. we're giving a considerable amount of equipment, effort, money and training to obscuring the government of iraq. >> but is that you're in the fight but you're not really in the fight, no 100%. >> if thousands of coalition members here, i have spent 25 years in this region. i would find it hard to believe that we're not interested in the safety and security of the government of iraq. >> it's part of the general's job to know where the men are on
3:47 am
the battlefield. command the largest shiite force in the country. seen here in images they captured this spring as they held a major victory, winning back sad dam hussein's hometown from the islamic state. they're fighting without weapons or support from the u.s. the fighters like these men at a training camp we visited deep in the south of the country are among more than 100,000 volunteers that make up the popular mobilization forces. men who rushed into the fight in the days after the iraqi army fell apart. now, in battle, they come to camps like this to continue their training in between deployments to the front line.
3:48 am
>> these young people took their weapons and defended baghdad from being over run, then they carried on and returned vast areas of iraq to government control. everyone accepts now that if it wasn't for them, not only baghdad but the entire iraq would have been over run by diesh. >> how many men have been lost so far? >> significant number, more than 2,000 mortars in this war. >> more than 2,000 militia fighters and thousands more iraqi police and soldiers. the faces of the deadline the streets of the capitol stretching for blocks. it's one of the first things we noticed as we drove around the city. many of these men killed by isis fighters using a weapon so
3:49 am
lethal, the general told us the americans have given it a name, franken truck. >> franken trucks are something out of a movie, something you see in a science fiction movie. these are vehicles that they've welded metal plates too, loaded them with high explosives put a suicide bomber inside of them and set themselves off. that is their precision weapon. >> you can see more of lara's report on our web site cbs the overnight news will be right back. ♪ it's the final countdown! ♪

>> if you plan on traveling to your thanksgiving feast, you're not alone, about 47 million americans will travel 50 miles for the holiday. most of them will go by car. and that means traffic jams. 40% of road delays are caused by bottlenecks and have nothing to do with accidents, weather or construction. kris van cleave reports from one notorious trouble spot, the entrance to the lincoln tunnel in new jersey. >> the lincoln tunnel that connects new jersey to new york city, the worst traffic bottleneck on the east coast and anyone sitting in it can tell you that. researchers looked at the bottle necks and found the amount of money for sitting in the traffic, more than $2.4 billion a year and when we say bottlenecks we don't mean rush hour, we mean spots like this that always seem to be bad. drivers it doesn't get any worse
3:53 am
than this, a 12 mile stretch of red lights crawling cars and pure commuter agony, interstate 90 in chicago around o'hare airport is considered the worst traffic bottleneck in the country resulting in 16.9 million hours of wasted time. that's an estimated $418 million of lost productivity a year according to a new report out this morning. the reason, pure volume. >> they've destroyed so many neighborhoods to build it and yet people can't get anywhere. >> i give myself about an hour and a half to get to work. >> reporter: the report identifies the 50 worst bottlenecks in the country. six of the top ten are in los angeles. the south land scores 12 of the worst traffic stopping choke points over all. the new york city area has nine brutal bottlenecks the 2.6 miles around the lincoln tunnel results in 3.4 million hours of driver delay every year. >> compared 2005 to 2015, are
3:54 am
