bombs. 300 people are still killed or maimed each year. >> you can see there is lots of heavy contamination in the air. >> reporter: simon ray of an advisory group said the president's pledge of 90 million dollars will help speed up the removal. >> i think with the announcement of the additional funding, you know, that would please a lot of laos people and they will understand the americans are committed here and are taking their responsibility seriously. >> reporter: that aid money, while much-needed, is not enough to complete the cleanup or to help all of those left handic handicapped and psychological damaged. charlie, president obama did acknowledge the many victims. but he did not apologize. >> margaret brennan, in laos, thanks. the u.s. milled conducted targets in central yemen. three strikes over three weeks killed at least 13 fighters. the most recent attack on sunday killed six and wounded one. tropical storm newton made landfall again this morning in

7:33 am
against cosby. she represents dozens of women who say they were assaulted by cosby. yesterday, cosby will stand trial around june 5th for a case in 2004. gretchen carlson has settled her lawsuit against roger ailes and fox for nearly 20 million. she got a statement from fox saying, by sincerely regret and apologize for the fact that gretchen was not treated with dignity that she and all of our colleagues deserve. >> ailes resigned july 21st and ailes has not admitted any wrongdoing. his lawyers did not respond to "cbs this morning" inquiries. david poken dflick is here. what do you make of the velocity and the size and the apology coming out of this settlement? >> this is big and it's basically unprecedented. i think the reason that you make
7:34 am
confidential settlement is to not apologize and not admit wrongdoing. sexual harassment didn't appear in that statement. >> does fox saying we need to put behind us the ailes regime? on this and saying it's a culture shift, 21st century fox and james murdoch are saying 21st century fox is a 21st century company and showing they have changed the culture. the guy at the top is gone and they have made an payment and a apology and feel they are sending a message. >> only one man is gone. we were having a great discussion in the makeup room this morning. can one man just be responsible for this type of culture? >> well, certainly, you know, waves of women have come to talk to the legal review about this and they say roger ailes sexually harassed them and seemed classic quid pro quo.
7:35 am
people have been accused of enabling this have stayed on or on even been elevated. the new co-president elevated that role to help run it under rupert murdoch. bill shine was accused of some of the women coming forward of helping ailes do this. the head of the human resources department, the general counsel who did a secret settlement in 2011 to pay a woman $3 million who alleged for years she had been sexually distorted by ailes. >> lori lunn? >> they made that accusation on the pages of the new york magazine. the general counsel is still in place. let's be clear. she claims she didn't know there was any credibility to the accusations being made. ailes just told her to settle it. a lot of people are still in place who helped sort of surround him so there are people who say the culture hasn't changed yet. i would watch what happens after the november elections and after the murdoch family tries to figure out how the leadership should look. >> we also learned that greta van susteren who was at fox 14
7:36 am
years she is leaving the network and exercised something call a key man clause in her contract. there are other stars at fox who have that key man contract. what that means i think it's within like 60 or 90 days they can leave if roger ailes leave and the other who have that are bill o'reilly and shanahanity and brett baird. >> there a lot of talk about roger ailes and steve be bannond create some sort of trumpun hany to join them. it could finally ultimately happen. the real question is megyn kelly, certainly the most important female figure at fox news who decade ago said she was sexually harassed by roger ailes
7:37 am
and has said she wants to go to another network who is not defined by fox. fox is trying make a play to keep her. you're seeing a lot of shifting on that key prime time lineup. >> is anything other than greta leaving other than this key man clause? >> at fox news i'm told she asked for more money. she had a long-term contract and asking for more. she displayed strong loyalty and perhaps had overstepped in defending roger ailes when these accusations were first met and said gretchen carlson sounded like somebody who had been disgruntled because her contract was not renewed. >> david folkenflik, thank you. apple will unveil the latest versions of its iphone in a few hours. it will most likely be a change in the headphones but is it enough to turn around the

falling sales of the smartphone, a big driver of apple's profits. john blackstone is in san francisco where apple will announce the new product. >> reporter: good morning. when the latest iphone is unveiled later today, what is likely to be the biggest development is what goes away. there will be no more little hole in the bottom to plug in your familiar headphone jack. instead, they will connect wirelessly and passed a big development as this device reaches its tenth year. at the annual unveiling of new iphones, it's getting harder for apple to compete with its past. the question has become what can apple do now to surprise us? like steve jobs did in 2007. >> and we are calling it iphone. >> reporter: in the years that followed there there would be more, like siri in 2011. can you help me with italian restaurants? >> i found 13 italian restaurants.
7:39 am
>> reporter: but now it's all become routine. >> we haven't seen the dramatic change in device features that we did perhaps just three or four years ago. >> reporter: tech research analyst jordan mckie says the phone itself is going to become less important than the software that runs on it. >> really, it is about the software that is going to drive sales of new devices. >> reporter: but this year, for the first time, sales of new iphones dropped, profits fell 27%. a reflection of how many apple's extraordinary success has been built on the iphone. >> it's nice that that one device is the most successful device in the history of the world. >> reporter: analyst danny hargraves will be watching how many people upgrade their iphones next year. >> i think the big threat to apple is that people hold their phones longer we think is happening to a certain extent and they look at the cheaper iphones and say that is good enough. >> reporter: as iphone sales look less certain, he says apple

cloud and apple pay and itunes and the app store. >> when the service out there have good value for people, it's a great revenue stream for apple and just keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger over time. >> reporter: we are also expecting the first upgrade of the apple watch today. the edition of a gps chip. gayle? >> thank you, john. >> what do you think, gayle? are you ready to have the wireless ear phones? >> yeah. i guess. i'm just trying to navigate it, norah. i still got a blackberry. want to live to 100? these italian villagers may hold the secret. answer to the age-old question what is behind those life spans? you're watching "cbs this morning." that sets ion strict quality and purity standards. nature made. the number one pharmacist recommended vitamin and supplement brand.
