thank you, oprah. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota -- let's go places. welcome to this is this is. charlie rose is off, but you'll be happy to know recovery is going very well. anthony mason is with us. >> hello again. >> hello. in the middle of a white house shake-up, president trump is significantly shifting u.s. policy on the middle east. the president welcomed israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu yesterday. mr. trump said any israeli/palestinian peace deal is okay with him even if it leaves the palestinians without a country of their own. >> the meeting took place at a stressful moment for the white house. the president needs to find a new labor secretary nominee and is still working to replace his former national security adviser, general michael flynn. margaret brennan is at the white
house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. american presidents typically set the global agenda for global policy, but diplomats tell me president trump is still very vague. one clear priority he has is a broad mideast peace deal, but some of his own public statements may complicate that. >> my friend, prime minister benjamin netanyahu -- >> reporter: at wednesday's press conference with prime minister netanyahu, the two leaders showered each other with praise, a stark contrast to the strain ed relationship with president obama. president trump broke with more than two decades of u.s. policy when he said he would not insist on a two-state solution to the israeli/palestinian conflict. >> i thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two, but honestly, if bibi and the palestinians are happy, the one might be best. >> reporter: that mean s -- t
announcement drew a sharp warning from palestinian official hannan ashrawi, who said mr. trump is, quote, accommodating extreme and irresponsible elements in israel and in the white house. >> the israelis are going to have to show some flexibility. >> reporter: but in a startlingly blunt moment, president trump did push on the prime minister, telling him to scale back settlement construction on palestinian land. >> as far as settlements, i'd like to see you hold back on settlements for a little bit. we'll work something out, but i would like to see a deal be made that might be a bigger and better deal than people in this room even understand. that's a possibility. so let's see what we do. >> a start. >> doesn't sound too optimistic, but -- good negotiator. >> that's the art of the deal. >> i also want to thank -- >> reporter: noticeably absent from president trump's side was national security adviser michael flynn. mr. trump had asked him to
resign two days ago, but publicly blamed the media and intelligence community for his ouster. >> i think it's very, very unfair what's happened to general flynn, the way he was treated and the documents and papers that were illegally -- i stress that -- illegally leaked. >> reporter: president trump just tweeted about this saying, leaking and even illegal classified leaking has been a big problem in washington for years. he then calls on "the new york times" and others to apologize. now, classified leaks are illegal, but these leaks of intercepted phone calls with the russian ambassador revealed that mr. flynn had misled not only the public but other white house officials, and that is what caused president trump to lose trust. now, cbs news has learned that retired admiral robert harward, a former deputy centcom
commander, had been offered flynn's job. he's negotiating terps of his role and an announcement is expected today or tomorrow. >> margaret, thank you very much. the president trump's comments on general flynn confirm that he and the intelligence community are still at odds. "the wall street journal" reports u.s. spies are keeping sensitive information from the president because of their, quote, deep mistrust of him. the director of the national intelligence office says, quote, any suggestion that the u.s. intelligence community is withholding information and not providing the best possible intelligence to the president and his national security team is not true. republicans and democrats are calling for investigations into flynn's firing, but they disagree about what to investigate. chip reid is on capitol hill with the latest on that. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. republicans want an investigation into the leaks coming from the intelligence community. but democrats are much more concerned with what's contained in those leaks and they want an
investigation into the administration's ties to russia. >> on the flynn issue, i think that we need to ask questions first. >> reporter: on capitol hill, some republicans are reluctant to support a congressional investigation into general michael flynn's contacts with russ russia. >> if law enforcement thinks there needs to be an investigation based on law enforcement type of facts, they make that decision. we don't need more political investigation up here. >> reporter: the senate intelligence committee is already conducting a bipartisan investigation into russia's activities in relation to the u.s. election. but democrats are now calling for a separate independent probe of the trump administration's alleged collusion with moscow. >> the intel folks are doing a good job now, but i think it's now bigger than just the intel. >> reporter: late yesterday the republican chairman and top democrat on the senate judiciary committee sent a letter to the justice department requesting copies of the tripanscripts of mr. flynn's intercepted calls. in a separate letter, 11 senate
democrats urged jeff sessions, an early supporter of candidate trump, to recuse himself and appoint special counsel to investigate what flynn did, who knew about it and when. senate democratic leader chuck schumer is leading the charge. >> those prosecutors should not be reporting to the first senator who endorsed donald trump's campaign. >> reporter: republicans say the biggest problem is not the latest allegations about russia but the leaks of confidential information by the intelligence community. >> the leaks to the press are outpacing the information available to congress right now, and so we're operating in a situation in which we don't have all the facts before us. >> reporter: attorney general sessions said during his confirmation hearing that he would avoid involvement in investigations of hillary clinton because of concerns about impartiality. but he says he will not recuse himself from investigations of his administration's ties to russia. gayle? >> tank you, chip.
the new secretary of state is on his first foreign trip ready to meet with russia's top diplomat. u.s. officials say rex tillerson plans to listen to his counterparts at the g-24 ministers meeting in germany. many of them are worried about the new administration's priorities. the retired exxonmobil ceo will meet with russian foreign minister sergey lavrov. us are officials say they'll talk about recent fighting in ukraine and the civil war in syria. president trump will have to find a new choice for labor secretary. andy puzder withdrew his nomination yesterday. the decision came amid uncertainty over whether the fast food executive had enough votes to win senate confirmation. "the washington post" and the partnership for public service say of 696 key positions requiring senate approval, only 12 have been confirmed. 23 are awaiting confirmation. jan crawford shows us how puzder's nomination fell apart. good morning. >> good morning. puzder faced opposition since his appointment back in december and while many of trump's cabinet nominees have had narrow
votes he is the first nominee not to make it through the confirmation process. andy puzder pulled his nomination for secretary of labor following increasing pushback not only from senate democrats but several senate republicans. >> there would have been questions that even if he'd been able to be confirmed would have made it difficult for him to be an effective secretary of the department of labor. >> reporter: in a statement announcing his withdrawal, he said, "i am honored to have been considered by president trump to lead the department of labor and put america's workers and businesses back on a path to sustain tbl prosperity." >> andy puzder would have made a really good labor secretary. >> reporter: puzder is the ceo of cke restaurant group, the parent company of burger chains including hardee's and charles jr. >> no pay, no way! >> reporter: but allegations of workplace cry violence fueled intense criticism.
>> mr. puzder has a long record of cheating workers out of overtime. he's paid out millions of dollars to settle claims when he was caught cheating. >> reporter: at home, puzder paid an undocumented immigrant in cash to do his housework, later saying he did not know the woman was not legally qualified to work. >> he vowed revenge. he said i'll see you in the gutter. >> reporter: in a 1995 ep sold of oprah, his wife accused him of domestic abuse, something he's always denied. president trump's nominee for the director of office of management and budge set facing skrut fi from his own party for supporting cuts to military spending. but he's still expected to get the 51 votes he need for confirmation. as for puzder, the white house has not indicated who his replacement will be. an undocumented immigrant mother taking refuge at a colorado church is in intensitying the national debate over immigration.
janette is trying to avoid deportation. she entered the first unitarian society after skipping a scheduled meeting with u.s. immigration and customs enforcement. the mother of four feared she would be detained. barry petersen is outside the denver church. good morning, barry. >> reporter: good morning. janette entered this church behind me yesterday in an attempt to keep immigration officials at bay. she says she will do whatever it takes to stay in this country and keep her family together. an emotional janet viz cara is fighting to stay in the united states. this is not just an attack on me, it's an attack on the entire immigrant community, she said, speaking from the church where she has taken ref yunl. if the system thinks it can break me, it can make me kneel, the system is wrong. the mother of four entered the united states illegally from mexico 20 years ago.
in 2009, she was convicted of using a fake social security number she says she was using to work. two years later a federal judge ordered she be deported to mexico. she was allowed to stay on appeal during the obama administration but her recent request was rejected. across town, protesters rallied in front of the u.s. immigration and customs enforcement headquarters. i.c.e. agents have arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants across the country in the last three weeks. the agency has repeatedly said these raids are routine. nearly 3 million were deported under the obama administration. but i.c.e. does not enter sensitive locations such as churches except in extreme situations related to national security, terrorism, or public safety. reverend mike moran says she is welcome to stay in his church as long as is necessary. >> deporting her to a country
she hasn't been in in 20 years, that punishment is obscene for the crime that was committed. >> reporter: she's not the first undocumented immigrant to take refuge in this church. in 2014, a mexican man stayed here for nine months. he left after i.c.e. sent a message saying he was no longer a priority. gayle? >> all right. thank you very much, barry. two more suspects were arrested overnight in connection with the apparent assassination of the half brother of north korean dictator kim jong-un. another female suspect scene on surveillance video wearing an lol shirt had previously been arrested. an autopsy revealed florp puncture wounds to kim jung nam's face or head so, that discredits initial reports that assassins used poisoned needles. adriana diaz is tracking the investigation. >> reporter: good morning. the list of suspects in this
bizarre tale keeps growing. today a 25-year-old indonesian woman was arrested along with a man suspected of being her boyfriend. they joined a 28-year-old woman arrested yesterday carrying a vietnamese passport. this attack unfolded in the middle of kuala lumpur's busy international airport and in full view of security cameras. this woman is a suspected assassin. she was caught on security camera at kuala lumpur's airport wearing a shirt ironically emblazoned with the letters lol. she and a second woman are suspected of attacking kim jung nam, the xild half brother of north korea's dictator. police say two women threw a cloth laced with liquid on his face monday. he died en route to the hospital. one place you won't hear about the murder, north korea. where later kim jong-un is busy marking the 75th birthday of his late father, kim jong-il. analysts say the young dictator
may have ordered the hit on his brother. he's already purged dozens of top officials including his uncle to exert his authority. >> ultimately, this is about power inside north korea. >> reporter: foreign affairs analyst ken gauze wrote a book on kim jong-un. >> kim jong-un may now feel emboldened to take the last steps toward consolidation of power, which would include getting rid of his brother. >> reporter: kim jong-nam was once the country's heir apparent. from while, he krit sized his younger brother. south korean officials say he survived an assassination attempt in 2012 and wrote a letter to his brother, begging for leniency. if north korea did, in fact, order his murder, it may indicate growing instability. >> why has it taken north korea so long to final licari out this executioning? that would suggest to me there has been some triggering factor either inside north korea or outside north korea that has led to this assassination.
>> reporter: the two women in custody have not been charged yet, but they are being held without bail for seven days. as for the autopsy, kim's blood, urine, and tissue samples are being tested for toxic suxs, but the results are not expected for about a week. norah? >> this is so fascinating. adriana, thank you. the death toll from gun violence in chicago is rising. in just two days, three children were among those killed. 2-year-old levon tay white was riding in the back seat when a suspect shot into the car. investigators believe his uncle was the target of a gang attack. he also died. 11-year-old takaya holmes and 12-year-old kenari gentry bowers were both hit by stray bullets in separate shootings over the weekend. only one suspect has been arrested. >> so sad. >> keeps getting worse. >> yeah. storms moving through northern california today will
be a test for the recently repaired spillways at the nation's tallest dam. nearly 200,000 evacuees returned home tuesday, but many are concerned the expected rain could cause new problems at the oroville dam. people had to evacuate sunday when the damaged spillways threatened to cause catastrophic flooding. officials say there is no immediate danger, however. an investigation is under way to find out why a plane crashed into, listen to this, a deer. yep, a deer, during a takeoff, in charlotte, north carolina. nearly 50 people were on board. >> we had a loud bang, though, we're coming back. >> okay. we think you hit -- somebody said it was a deer. >> reporter: the mississippi-bound american eagle flight immediately circled back to make an emergency landing yesterday. firefighters were waiting to hose down the plane because the collision caused a fuel leak. no one on board was hurt. the deer did not survive. would you throw out perishable food after the sell

"the washington post" reports congress approved legislation that blocks a rule to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people. the obama era rule would have prevented an estimated 75,000 people from being able to buy a firearm. gun rights groups oppose the rule. the aclu also criticized it,
saying it advanced a stereotype that people with mental disabilities are violent. >> "the new york times" has a study saying the number of extremist groups active in the u.s. is up. there were 917 groups last year according to the southern poverty law center up from 892 the year before. the number of anti-muslim groups almost tripled to 101 last year. there were 34 back in 2015. >> "the indianapolis star" reports on the search for the killer or killers of two teenaged girls in northwest indiana. two bodies that were found near a creek tuesday were identified as 13-year-old abigail williams and 14-year-old liberty german. they were reported missing the day before after they had gone hiking. police hope the public can identify a man photographed in the area that day. >> "the wall street journal" says verizon is close to a deal to cut the price of it offer for yahoo!'s core internet business. talks restarted after yahoo!

good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the ship is over the horizon about 30 to 40 miles out to sea in international waters, and even though the pentagon says they don't believe it poses any threat to the people in this area, they do see it as yet another instance of russian provocation. at about 300 feet long, the ship was built for spying. the ship's sophisticated surveillance equipment can intercept radar, radio, and other electronic signals. >> it's not there because it enjoys the connecticut coastline in the winter. it is collecting information apparently because it wants to spy on our military. >> reporter: the vessel set sail from cuba and was spotted tuesday about 70 miles off delaware. u.s. territorial waters extends just 12 miles from the mainland. yesterday it was said to be within 30 miles of new london. its route would have taken it past several navy major
installations but the director of the russian maritime studies institute doubt the ship picked up a lot of sensitive information. >> when we know that that vessel is in range, it's highly unlikely that we are using radio or radar waves or any other kind of electronic l l communications that this ship could pick um. >> reporter: the ship has traveled up the atlantic coast before in 2014 and 2015. it was also docked in havana in 2015 when the first high-level u.s. delegation made its historic trip to cuba. >> we know they're doing it. they know that we know that they're doing it. >> reporter: it's the late nest an alarming string of incidents involving russian military. last week a group of russian jets buzzed a u.s. destroyer in the black sea. and the u.s. accused russia of secretly deploying cruise missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, in violation of a major arms control treaty. >> this russian spy ship may be just part of a testing of a new
administration, which has been all too cozy with vladimir putin's regime in russia. >> reporter: the pentagon is keeping a close eye on this ship, but they really can't do anything unless the ship ventures into u.s. coastal waters. that's the 12-mile limit, or they break international law. now, interestingly, the u.s. doesn't have an equivalent kind of spy ship, relying instead on planes and satellites to gather their military intelligence. norah? >> thank you so much. new research suggests doctors may be able to predict autism at an age when treatment is more effective. it means diagnoses may be possible in the first year of life instead of the current range of 2 to 4 years. researchers performed brain scans on babies considered high risk because they have an older sibling with the disorder. 81% of babies with abnormal brain development later developed autism. our dr. dr. david agus joins us from los angeles. good morning. >> good morning, norah.
>> doctor, this sounds like a breakthrough. what exactly did these brain scans show? >> well, they took children and actually did it at night when they were sleeping and put them in an florida. -- mri. part of the brain got thicker, what you see, here, and smell, but they could see the changes that then correlated to alzheimer's at 6 months rather than waiting till they're symptomatic at age 2 to 4. >> will this be routine screening for high-risk studies? a it's an early study so it needs to be validated but it's not scaleable. an mri is difficult. waiting for a child to fall asleep and put them in a machine with all this banging, an expensive test, is probably not the way we'll diagnose alzheimer's -- autism, but it gives us hope we'll intervene in this disease earlier. >> what are the odds of having autism?
>> the united statesitis about 1 in 68. if you have a sibling, that order is significantly higher, on the order of 12 to 15. >> why is it higher for sibli s siblings? >> because we think there's a genetic opponent to alzheimer's. >> autism. >> and we'll learn more going forward. >> we were talking about autism. why is that early detection so important? >> early detection in autism is very important because if you intervene starting at 6 months there's some data that you can have a better outcome later in the children. so we want to push earlier, diagnose earlier so, hopefully we can push them in the right direction for brain development and they can have a life that's actually a more compatible with speaking and interacting by that early intervention. >> are you learning anything from the study on how to treat autism? >> i think we're learning something in that we now have something to follow if we put in some of these treatments, whether behavioral or otherwise.
now we can start to look did we change the thickening of this brain at age 6 months. >> dr. david agus, thank you very much. the date stamps on food can be confusing, especially when you're shopping in seeing in your favorite grocery store. >> best by, purchase by, use by. how do you figure out when your food goes bad? how some grocery trade groups are trying to simplify things. and our podcast app. the producer, the editor of our "eye opener" explains what makes your world in 90 seconds stand out every morning. we get questions about that. how do you guys do that? we'll be right back.

throughout the industry for this streamlined initiative. it's an example of the food industry really stepping up and stepping forward to address a consumer challenge. >> reporter: the new label guidelines are voluntarily, but giant retailer walmart is already on board. it says it supports the effort to simplify consumers' lives and reduce food waste. the natural resources defense council says millions of americans are throwing out good food because they believe it's not safe to eat after the date on the package. >> we waste about 40% of the food we produce. the single most cost effective solution is standardizing and clarifying date labels. >> reporter: the trade groups think the new labels will be adopted by next summer. they think not only will it save food but it will actually save you money because you won't be throwing away food that's perfectly good that you could be eating, norah. >> really good idea, jamie. thank you. >> anything to clear that up. it gets confusing. >> waste less, absolutely. the online market known for its

>> it's people selling pooerm their craft items. >> we have 1.7 million sellers around the world, 27 million active buyers. >> what made you believe this could work as a website? >> what we really saw in 2005 was this community that you see when you see offline craft fairs, you see people buying and selling from each other, spending time with each other, admiring each other's craft, that you could bring that experience online and that local feel of standing across the table from swunl you can rep hi kate online and connect people across the world. >> how do you rebut some of the criticism with esty selling these mass manufactured products that will take sort of this home-spun image away from etsy. >> we don't allow mass manufactured products on etsy. we do allow people to use third-parties to do things like jewelry testing, which is a very expensiv expensive, difficult, even dangerous part of jewelry making. so everything on etsy has to be created by the creator
themselves. >> what does etsy stand for? >> etsy really means whatever you want it to be. we have a tradition in the company of when anyone asks we make up a different answer. >> make up one for today. what is it today? >> the best answer that we have is there's a section of film 8 1/2 from one of the character says etsy, and it sounded really good and that's where it came from. pit's a great website. >> thank you. >> continue gralts to you. chad dickerson is the ceo of etsy. actor ashton kutcher says he's found his real calling. ahead, the very serious message he delivered on capitol hill yesterday. and later, roman ruins 2,000 years old are brought back to life through virtual reyal pi. how renaissance art and computer programmers combined to create it. hi, thanks for coming. this year, chevy received more j.d. power initial quality awards than any other car brand. i'm very, very impressed. did i mention they received more of them last year too?

the past. 2,000 years ago this labyrinth now under the city of rome was the sprawling home of emperor nero, stretching the size of three football fields. today tourists can explore it, but the colors, light, and opulence of this ancient roman villa were unimaginable until this month, when visitors could start using virtual reality glasses. >> the room looked out centrally onto one of the two pantagonal courtyards. >> tom papa is viz guerraing from new york. >> you always try to imagine in your mind what it must have been like and this helps tremendously. >> reporter: virtual reality brings to life the grand architecture, rich colors, and opulent walls inlaid with precious gemstones. all of it had been lost for centuries. >> this entire room was filled with soil like this. >> yes. and spaces and other rooms --

we have the gold -- >> reporter: raphael is an architect and graphic designer whose company painstakingly created the virtual reality show. >> and you recognize from the shape, this really strange shape here, we have this strange shape here. >> reporter: you go back to these renaissance paintings to re-create what this looked like. >> yes. >> reporter: and then transition to here digitally. >> yes. >> reporter: it's italy so of course his studio has its own frescoed ceiling. working from the town of amelia, outside rome, designers used the graphically rich technology of video games to virtually transport tours inside the ancient palace to see its grandeur, its colorful marble, and sweeping views of rome. you look down at the grass and the grass is moving in the wimd. >> it's fun, yeah. i saw a lot of children that
