places. welcome to cbs this morning. the trump administration says it has evidence that syria's president al-assad is preparing another deadly chemical weapons attack on his own people. >> the white house issued a warning last night saying if mr. assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price. >> in april you may recall the u.s. fired cruise missiles at an air base after a gas attack killed nearly 80 civilians. >> reporter: the white house has provided no specific evidence of the preparations it said are underway and similar to those carried out right before an april chemical attack that killed more than 80 people. but president trump issued an extraordinary warning to the assad regime.
the last time the trump administration learned of a chemical weapons attack on syrian civilians, 59 cruise missiles each with a 1,000 pound war head were shot at a syrian airfield and more than a dozen war planes. dozens of people including children choked on toxic nerve gas. the white house warns a similar atrocity may be imminent saying it quote, identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians including innocent children. >> no child of god should ever suffer such horror. >> reporter: at the time president trump said the images of dying babies moved him to action. tensions have escalated in recent weeks. the u.s. has bombed iranian backed myly shas three times.
their top diplomat spoke with secretary of state rex tillerson yesterday about preventing another military attack. >> the final outcome in our view does not provide for a role for the assad -- for assad or for the assad family in the future governance of syria. >> reporter: haley also raised the stakes posting on twitter that any further attacks will be blamed on assad but also on russia and i ran who support him killing his own people. >> reporter: the kremlin called those threats unacceptable and the assad regime continues to deny that it ever has or will be undertaking a chemical attack. now, charlie, the united nations security council meets today to discuss further action on syria. >> thanks. the white house says voters should not trust a new report on
the senate republican's health care bill. it estimates 22 million more people will be uninsured by 2026. that convinced another republican to vote no. senate leaders can only afford to lose two gop votes. nancy is on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and because of that growing gop opposition, the bill may now not come up for a vote this week as planned. several of those republicans are saying that they will block attempts by gop leaders to bring the bill to the floor as early as today. they view those cbo numbers as proof that this legislation needs a lot more work. >> i think if you were on the fence about the bill, the cbo score did not help. >> reporter: lindsey graham was sounding pessimistic last night and he's likely to vote yes.
his colleague susan collins announced she's a no. tweeting 22 million people lose insurance? one in five residents in her state is on medicaid. according to the cbo report the gop steep medicaid cuts would force enrollment down by 15 million americans over ten years reducing the federal deficit by $321 billion. many republicans say that's a good thing. >> these programs are growing at an unsustainable rate. >> reporter: as for the americans in the individual market average premiums would be about 20% lower than under obamacare. but some americans would receive smaller tax credits meaning many would end up with higher out of pocket spending on health care. hit hardest would be older middle income americans. a 64-year-old making roughly $60,000 a year would go from paying about $4,000 a year to 16,000 by 2026. >> no matter how the bill changes around the edges, it is
fundamentally rotten at the center. >> reporter: the cbo estimates that under the gop plan 15 million people would drop off coverage next year primarily because obamacare's penalty for not having insurance would be eliminated. gop supporters argue the government shouldn't force people to buy insurance anyway. >> that's not denying somebody coverage. that's a choice by them to drop coverage they already have because they don't have to pay a fine. >> reporter: this bill would temporarily be a setback for the white house which is slamming the cba saying the nonpartisan auf office has a history of inaccuracy. the president has been working the phones and the vice president is sitting down for dinner with four of them tonight. >> all right. thank you so much. the trump administration is getting ready to put its temporary travel ban in place. it will stop most visits from six mainly muslim countries for 90 days. the supreme court yesterday threw out lower court orders
blocking the ban. the president called it a quote, great day for america's future security and safety. jan crawford is outside the supreme court this morning. >> reporter: president trump has been slapped down at every time but the justices get the last word and yesterday they all agreed to allow at least part of his travel ban. so in the next few days the government will stop denying visas to certain travelers from those six countries considered safe havens for terrorism. >> we will destroy radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: president trump reaffirmed his commitment to national security during a visit by the indian prime minister. the inside opinion announced by chief justice john roberts said preserving national security is an urgent objective of the highest order. it's a unanimous rebuke to federal appeals courts that
halted the ban nationwide after those courts found it violated federal law and amounted to unconstitutional religious discrimination against muslims. reaction from immigrants rights groups was swift. >> this muslim and refugee ban is unjust. it is un-american. and we will continue to fight it in the courts and in the streets. >> this is kind of a slap to the face of muslims around the country, and even around the world. >> reporter: but the court stopped short of allowing the president's full ban to take effect saying it would not apply to immigrants who have a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the united states such as a close family member or a position at an american company or university. >> i think it's premature to call this, you know, a victory or a nonvictory. >> reporter: attorney general doug chin who fought against the ban called that provision a partial win, but said his state could still be negatively affected. >> anybody outside of the united states who's watching everything
that's happened, there's no question, you know, this -- that what has happened has created a chilling effect. >> reporter: the justices scheduled arguments for october but the administration had originally said it needed this travel ban while it reviewed immigration vetting procedures so by then the whole case could be moot. the white house has nominated christopher wray to replace james comey who was fired last month. wray was an assistant attorney general under president george w. bush. in a statement wray said he's honored and humbled to be nominated. he promised quote, complete commitment to protecting our country and upholding our constitution and laws. firefighters are southern utah are battling an unprecedented wildfire this time of year. the brian head fire has burned at least 13 homes. it covers more than 71 square miles. that is large e than washington,
d.c. the fire is one of dozens burning across the southwest. jamie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. firefighters, 1,400 of them are doing everything in their power to try to get this fire under control. they're even using bulldozers to try to draw fire lines around the worst part of this blaze, but right now the fire is only 9% contained. that's because on monday they faced severe weather conditions like low humidity, high winds and extreme heat. that forced more evacuations to the north of this fire. today the weather should be a little bit better, but many are worried it just can't contend with this extreme fire season. officials say they've never seen anything like this, a wind fuelled fire covering so much ground so quickly, so early in the fire season. >> what's the worst case scenario with this fire? >> the worst case scenario is if the weather conditions continue as they are and that's very
windy. >> reporter: red flag warnings are in place for the next few days meaning the dangerous fire conditions will continue. >> it's been a wind driven fire from the very beginning. winds up to 30 miles per hour, gusts everyone higher than that and when wind is pushing a fire at that kind of speed it's difficult to get out in front of it by the firefighters. >> reporter: minu >> reporter: more than 1,500 people have been forced to evacuate. >> if the cabin burns we'll deal with it and rebuild it but you can't replace a life. >> reporter: firefighters many t -- in the east are also battling a fire that burned 1,500 acres and in southern california the mercury hit close to 100 degrees when a wildfire broke out near palm springs, closing down a highway and prompting an evacuation warning for two mountain communities. firefighters in utah don't
expect to contain this fire until mid july. this is unusual because it is so early in the season. >> it is. normally it would probably be more like in august. so it's pretty unprecedented to see this kind of fire activity and behavior. >> reporter: this fire began by someone using a blow torch to burn weeds. we don't know who that person is or if they'll face any charges. so far the cost to fight this fire is at $7 million. >> all right. thank you so much. the former coowner of a massachusetts compounding pharmacy has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison for his role in a deadly meningitis outbreak. he was head pharmacist of the new england compounding center at the time of the 2012 outbreak. 64 people died nationwide and hundreds of others became sick. jim axel rod has been following this story from the very beginning. >> reporter: in march he was convicted on conspiracy and fraud charges, but not on acts of second degree murder related
to racketeering. however, the way the judge handled the verdict may have allowed him to escape a much harsher sentence, something that has angered the families who lost loved ones in this case. >> the nine years is absolutely nothing compared to what me and my children will endure for the rest of our lives. >> reporter: sharon's husband died after receiving a contaminated steroid shot daryl lost his father. >> he was our foundation. >> reporter: she survived but says she still suffers from the effects of the tainted shots. >> i can't go out and enjoy myself because i'm sick all the time. >> reporter: barry left court after the sentencing without saying a word. >> do you think it was a fair sentence? >> reporter: but inside he had made a tearful apology to those affected saying i am so sorry for your ex- trootraordinary lo. >> i think nobody could hear those statements without being
moved to tears. many of us were. >> reporter: the u.s. attorney's office was also hoping for a loer longer punishment urging the judge to give 35 years. the final verdict form revealed the jury was split on multiple charges including the more serious acts of second degree murder. typically that would prompt the judge to send them back for more deliberations. the judge did not question the numbers on the form. the jury affirmed the verdict and the case was closed. >> i believe that justice has failed the victims. i really do. >> reporter: the victims' families tell us they feel like the judge robbed them of not only a longer sentence for him but they also feel robbed of the justice in hearing the word guilty in relation to the deaths of their loved ones. >> tough for those families. >> you can clearly see and hear their pain.

deadly attacks. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: gayle, good morning. there hadn't been a fatal bear mauling in the state park here sin since 1995. many people are steering clear just as the busy summer tourist season arrives. a big race scheduled for alaska in july has been cancelled. they're one of the biggest draws in the nation's biggest states, but now, bear country is getting unsettling attention. on june 18th, 16-year-old jack cooper was chased by a black bear after running a race in anchorage. he used his phone to tell his family what was happening but by the time he was found it was too late. just a day later southeast of fair banks a biological technician and newly wed named erin johnson was mauled and killed by a predatory black bear. this past weekend two separate brown bear attacks.

>> this is cbs-3 "eyewitness news." >> good morning, everyone being i'm jim donovan, there could be a millionaire watching right now, no one has claimed a winning powerball ticket, worth a million bucks, it was bought right here in philadelphia. the winning ticket was sold on saturday at variety store, on fifth street in olney. the tickets matched all five white balls, but not the powerball. so check those tickets. let's sends it over to katie for a look at today's forecast. >> morning, jim. we ended up with heavy thunderstorm rumbling through, those have long since moved on out. left with at the moment generally quiet weather, couple of stray straws, sprinkle here and there in kent county crossing delaware bay, all-in-all expecting partly sunny next couple of hours there is afternoon, evening, spotty showers, storms, will also fire up. just waiting for cold front to

it is tuesday, june 27th, 2017. welcome back to cbs this morning. ahead, the white house warning to syria's president. we have new information on possible plans for another chemical attack by the syrian regime. also how the details of the senate health care bill could affect your coverage. but first, here is today's eye opener at 8:00. the trump administration says it has evidence that syria's president is preparing another deadly chemical weapons attack. >> white house has provided no specific evidence, but president trump issued an extraordinary warning because of growing gop opposition the bill may now not come up for a vote this week as planned. president trump has been slapped down at every turn by
the appeals court and the justices get the last word and they all agreed to allow at least part of his travel ban. >> firefighters are doing everything to try to get this fire under control. today the weather should be a little bit better but many are worried it can't contend with this extreme fire season. puerto rico is for sale. the island declared bankruptcy last month. >> are you in the market for an island? >> yes, i would like that. >> can you finance this for me, please? the ranger work is amazing. we say michael keeton, but you're not michael keeton. you have a real name you actually use and tell the people what it is. >> my real name is douglas. michael douglas. >> gets a laugh. i'm charlie rose with gayle
king and norah o'donnell. the white house last night issued an extraordinary warning to the syria leader that says he will pay quote, a heavy price if he launches another chemical attack. a u.s. official says intelligence detected activity near the same syrian chemical weapons bunker connected to that deadly attack back in april. more than 80 people including children were killed. in response, the u.s. fired 59 cruise missiles at a syrian government air base. we're at the white house with more on this story. >> reporter: good morning. well, this ominous white house statement was issued late last night after u.s. intelligence detected activity around the airfield. that is the same location from which that deadly april chemical weapons attack was launched. now, according to what a u.s. official tells our own cbs news david martin there is activity
around that bunker which was not destroyed during the u.s. strike due to fear at the time that it would spread the toxic material. the u.s. has also picked up increased communications by the syrian unit responsible for chemical weapons. however, it is not clear whether that is preparation for an attack or simply movement for another reason such as an inspection. u.s. diplomats tell me that they were caught offguard by the strong language that was used in this white house statement. however, this did come just hours after a tense phone call between russia's top diplomat and secretary of state rex tillerson. that extraordinary warning came following the call during which russia did confirm that preventing future chemical weapons attacks was a conversation point. lo lavrov said he was very frustrated at tlie u.s. military strikes against militias who are
backing the assad regime. we do know later this morning president trump has plans to speak with france's leader macron and i am hearing from european diplomats that they are seeing very similar intelligence tracking what we just told you u.s. intelligence officials have seen and they will be discussing this on the call with trump. military activity and options have been a point of conversation in france as well. >> great reporting, thank you. let's now take a closer look at some of the numbers in the senate bill and how that legislation could affect your coverage because we're talking about this senate health care bill. it faces opposition after a congressional budget office report. we now know that at least six gop senators oppose the bill. right now there's not enough support to bring it to a vote. there was this nonpartisan cbo estimate that 22 million fewer
people will have insurance with the new bill. >> and they also expect it would cut the deficit by $321 billion over the next decade and under obamacare a 21-year-old would pay $5,100 for a silver plan. a 64-year-old with the same income would pay $6,800. tax credits cover part of that cost. the senate plan would reduce the 21-year-old premiums but the 64-year-old would pay more than $20,000. the older person would receive no tax credit and could be charged up to five times more than a younger person. the white house says the cbo cannot accurately predict how health care legislation will impact insurance coverage. let's take a closer look at those senate numbers and how the legislation should affect your coverage. white house correspondent is with us from washington. good morning. so just after sharing with our viewers those numbers, i mean, what factors into how much
someone pays for health care? >> two of the big factors are the subsidies and how much insurers can charge people who are older. as those charts illustrated really well insurance can now charge older people more for insurance. so a 64-year-old, someone in their 50s or 60s can now pay as much as five times a healthy person. at the same time the subsidies for people who are sort of upper, lower, middle income go down. so they don't get as much of a subsidy and a tax credit and that's what has these older lower income meshes feeling really -- bearing the biggest brunt of these changes. >> why the tax benefits for wealthy people? >> the larger republican ideology of cutting tax credits, you know, believing that fewer taxes is going to be better for economic growth, one of the dee principles driving republicans' desire to replace obamacare is to get rid of these taxes.
>> now, the larger savings come from reductions in the medicaid spending and nearly 70 million americans really rely on medicaid so what does this mean for them, shannon? >> eventually millions of people will lose medicaid coverage according to the cbo estimate. the expansion will eventually be rolled back. it will be harder in the future to qualify for medicaid and hospitals and nursing homes and institutions that depend on those medicaid payments will eventually see cuts as this bill reduces how much money is give to state and how quickly it can grow. one of the things obamacare did was cover essential benefits. this bill does not. so how would this affect coverage? >> well, that's an excellent point. so now insurers do not have to provide these sort of basic services, you know, even doctors
visits, prescription drug coverage which they didn't have to do before this law. so if you have an employee plan, you don't think this affects you, now your employer could provide you a really skinny basic plan that maybe doesn't even cover doctor's visits or prescription drug benefits or maternity care vaccines. your employer doesn't have to provide those thing to you which they had to under the affordable care act. >> how do you think it will hurt them, the people who supported them during the election? >> this really is in line for what republicans have been talking about for more than eight years. they were elected on that. i don't think anybody doubted their interest in repealing obamacare. but they also don't like entitlement so the cuts to the medicaid program which is something that, you know, a lot of supporters in red states benefit from, you know, the republicans view that as an
entitlement and they feel the program has gotten too big, too expansive. it's government run health care. there's a lot of raes in the system and they're trying to bring it back to people who are disabled or pregnant women or children and not able-bodied adults. that's the republican ideology behind this. >> all right. a lot of discussion continues. tennis star serena williams fired back at controversial comments made by john mcenroe. williams said that she would be ranked about 700th on the men's circuit isn't based in fact, she says. well, john mcenroe is here to talk about his new book. we can't wait for him to come to the table. >> i can't wait

chalk blew up. it was clearly in. >> john mcenroe's fiery outbursts on the tennis court earned him a reputation of one of the iconic and most controversial athletes in history. he spent 170 weeks as the sport's top player. since leaving the tour in 1992 he's become an outspoken tennis commentator. he's pursued a variety on and off the court. he discusses his struggle to reinvent himself after retirement with this new book. >> what's new? >> let's start with the elephant in the room. why was it necessary for you to say that serena couldn't beat the 700th player? >> as you know well enough, charlie, i've -- i respect
serena, very much so, okay, and i was simply calling her on an npr which supposedly you -- you know, this is where you can say it like it is and you're going to get honest feedback. she's the greatest player -- female player that ever lived. then the lady said to me i don't remember which one, but she said, why did you say woman? why didn't you just say the greatest, you know, ten mnis player that ever lived? and then i felt the need, i probably needed to defend myself, which is say what i really felt is about what i think she would be. i think you're referring to the fact that i said she'd be about 700th in the world? i've got a solution. i think i -- >> i'm clutching the table right now. >> would you like to apologize? >> no, but i -- the offer is this because it seems in tennis unlike other sports that they're always asking about how women -- they always ask me how i would
do. why isn't this old bag john mcenroe, how would he do against serena? i'm sure the men would be all for this, the men and women play together and then we don't have to guess. >> but john, you didn't answer charlie's question. >> what was it? you're right. i wasn't paying attention. it wasn't necessary. it was not necessary. >> you knew it would create -- >> i didn't know it would create controversy. >> you didn't. >> no. >> does bobby riggs mean anything to you? >> what do you think? charlie, you're a tennis guy, what do you think that serena williams would be ranked if she played in the men's game? >> she seemed pretty strong to me. >> okay. nobody can prove this. here's what she said. dear john, that's a nice way to start, i adore and respect you, but please, please keep me out of your statements if they are not factually based -- or that
are not. they're not factually based. >> serena has a way with words. i've been in the room five different times with five of my kids were born. i don't want anything to go wrong with serena because she's pregnant. i don't want to upset her or whatever it was. i think she was doing it tongue in cheek as well and i think deep down we're talking about something -- i can't believe we're talking about it. >> john. >> but nonetheless, if you want to keep talking about it i'd be more than happy to. >> i actually do. men are stronger, men are faster, we all get that, but i think it sort of belittles what women do on the court and the fact that you ranked her 700. so my question to you is she won australia weeks pregnant. you ranked her at 700 on the men's. where would you put yourself? >> are you asking me at 58 years of age what i'd be ranked in the tour if i had to play best of
five, which is what the men have to do at majors? >> yes. >> i would be currently about 1,200 in the world. i mean, i'm just -- i have a tennis academy where i lose to kids that are 16 or 17. you know, high school kids and i would lose to -- there's pros at -- 37 pros at my club. six or seven of whom on a bad day i would lose to and we could go on and on and i was the former number one player in the world. >> john north korea enrow is trying to get publicity for his book. that's secretly he wants to play sere serena. >> i never wanted to play serena. people always ask me about playing her. do they ask roger fedderer about playing her? >> let's get to the book. because we don't have much time. >> forget the book. okay? it's not in the book, this part. >> what is it you want us to take away from your story and understanding you?
>> all right. in essence, hopefully that i'm trying to look at the glass half full even being battered by these same questions over and over and over again, but that hopefully with some perspective and life experiences and things that have happened to me that all in all i feel like i'm in a better place and i can share some of those with people. >> and your wife says you're in a better place. patty says you always wanted to be better at everything, a better father, a better person, a better human being and you say too that you've changed on the anger front. how so? >> well, it's a work in progress, but i think, you know, just -- when you started this segment it was when my most famous line, you cannot be serious. it's pathetic that's what we're still talking about but i think it's because i've become a slightly more bearable person to put up with and hopefully a nicer person and that was something that i went to, that
was great at the time and i'm proud of that in its own ways. >> what could you have done to win more championships? >> i could have gone to australia the first six of my career for starters when i didn't play there at all. i trained hard, people say i didn't, but that's not fair or true. >> no apology to serena, really? >> i would be happy to apologize to serena if that makes you feel better. i think serena is incredible. boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price, he improves his farm and invest in his community to make even better coffee. all for a smoother tasting cup. green mountain coffee. introducing colgate total advanced health mouthwash. just shake to activate its unique formula that removes 24x more bacteria. for a healthier mouth and a clean you can feel! try colgate total advanced health mouthwash. that goes beyond assuming beingredients are safe...ood

welcome back to cbs this morning. we ran short on time in our last half hour, so we said to john mcenroe, please stay, because your book is really good. it's very revealing about who you are, how you became who you became. and why. >> and why. >> the one thing that struck me is you really bond with artists and comedians. you can see how they do what they do because they're solitary out there. >> you go to an art show and people look at it and you hear these comments, a lot of them pretty tough at times and then i was oon the tennis court, played a lot of matches where people would come out saying you're a jerk. which they're apparently saying now about what i said about
serena and i think going to a standup comedy place and lay it out there bare, at times i felt it out there. >> but you love this game. >> i do love it. i'm concerned it's not going in the right direction. i think that the game is not accessible, affordable enough. it's like the 1%, the rich are getting richer. i just disagree with the direction that we're headed generally, but specifically tennis, i mean, it's sort of like a microcosm. not enough kids can afford to play. it's not sexy enough. we've got to do more to get people on the court. >> you also said being angry on the court made you a better player. how? >> well, i got more intense and i dug a little deeper. maybe threw my opponents off a few times. i didn't do that deliberately. some people won't believe that. later on when it became abvous. >> you didn't play for the
camera or the crowd? >> in the beginning it was me as a kid trying to change the sport and bring it to the masses the same way that people look at football and basketball, all the other games. they're not saying hello on the football field. >> who's the greatest player today? >> roger is the greatest and raf fa. i mean, i look at these guys, i mean, i admire roger but how much he loves it is what i really respect. >> but is it roger or -- >> my rankings would be roger, raffa, then i'd three pete sam pras in. he's the greatest fast court player. serena williams at five, and number six, you happy now? >> there really is no need to compare men and women.
>> how come we always do it then in tennis and not other sports. go to the other sports and ask them how they would do or a boxer. >> like the wnba. >> well, that bobby riggs when he played billy jean king and he threw the match, but no, i'm kidding. >> if you had -- >> that's a whole other story. >> watch out tomorrow. >> i'll be back tomorrow at 8:15. >> if you hadn't have found tennis, what would it have been art or music? i love seeing a great piece of art is inspiring but it would have been awful nice to be a guitar player like keith richards and the rolling stones. >> you golf loved hanging out with them. >> i can't deny that. >> well, you guys are great at more than one thing and so you know, i'm thankful that i was good at one thing. thanks for having me a few more minutes.
>> incredible to watch. >> thank you. i appreciate it. >> seriously is on sale now and going to be on the late show with stephen colbert. >> i thought i was busy but this guy just came back from russia an hour ago or something. >> all right. we'll be watching. the new york police department is working to show its softer side you could say with some of its newest cruisers. kris van cleave is in central park. one ride at a time. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know whrks we talk about police cars, these turn heads when their lights and sirens are on. one doesn't have a siren it's a big reaction for something that's anything but. this isn't the cruiser you were expecting but the nation's biggest city is okay with that. so is officer donnie. >> you are probably driving the world's most smallest patrol
car. >> yes, i am. it's the smallest and most compact but it's a good ride. >> a ride he uses to patrol central park. the smart car is intended for one officer only so no bad guys in here. they use it mostly for distriti writing and other things. >> i tell them i want to look inside. it's not as bad as you think. >> reporter: unlike the three wheeled scooter it's replacing it comes with air conditioning and air bags and costs six grand left. >> when you went to the staff and said, i want to add smart cars, what did they say? >> they said no. >> i
i would call it neighborhood friendly it's disarming. it's kissable and huggable. >> the cruiser is proofing to be a hit, the public can't seem to get enough. >> what do you think of the consider? >> good. >> reporter: to the world's cutest police car, even you're kidding, right? but all these pictures are generating big-time social media buzz. the horses may be bigger but which is smarter? >> what do you think? >> it was cool. >> cool right? >> the kind of cool that makes a park full of strangers approach a police car and the officers. >> what's that like? you've got people coming up and taking pictures. >> yeah, it feels good. a lot of people come up to me and ask for pictures and it's always a good feeling. >> reporter: this police car does not respond to emergency calls and they're not to exceed 40 miles an hour in the car so it's not going to replace your
bigger police cruisers but it is proving you can get very big things out of one very smart car. >> i'm sure the big cruisers will be around too. a lack love government oversight, a cosmetics and personal products more than doubled to nearly 1,600 complaints between 2015 and 2016 but that east estimated to be just a fraction of the actual number. our doctor joins us at the table to discuss. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> what reactions are you worried about? >> these are products that we probably all used this morning. hair care products, perfume, some very common ones. we used them every day for years. >> certain brands or -- >> it's basically this industry of cleansing, beautify occasion
and changing our appearance. that's what we're talking about. there are about 396 adverse events reported every year and that probably is the tip of the iceberg because we know that research has shown that nearly less concern because there are really very minimal safety overnight. i think that's surprising that there's a lot of people. this jump that you talked about was primarily from three different product lines. hair care, skin care and tattoos and the complaints can range from allergic reactions and then longer term concerns about cancer, and other problems. >> is it pushed for more oversight? >> i think it needs to be on sonl level but there's no need for premarket safety approval. manufacturers don't need to report to the fda if there are complaints.
there is no need to register products. there's no need to give them products. we wait until products arise and then they can investigate and they really don't recall product from the market. >> you would think that most people would use deodorant and hair care. is there something that we should look to buy sh. >> there are thousands of chemicals that make up all kinds of ingredients but manufacturers don't have to list the ingredients because they can be trade secrets or special formizatio formulatio formulations. >> pick products with the fewest ingredien ingredients. pick products with chemicals that are tried, tested over the years. and you also want to pick
products that are dye free, preservative froee and if you have an issue i think the big reason for this letter was to say to report it. report it to the fda, the beforer. the fda has a website you can go to. you fill out on online form and the more data we have as the -- as the author said, if we can't measure it we can't manage it. that's what we need to do. >> thank you very much. you can find a link to the fda's adverse event reporting system on our website. that is cbs this morning.com. and a rare inside view of the u.s. military shadowy drone war.
for nearly a decade brett was one of an elite handful in the mull tear at the center of america's covert drone war. his special operations task force used drones to follow, capture and kill some of the world's deadliest terrorists. >> during one 14-month period they removed terrorists from the battlefield in iraq. led to the capture of more than
400 enemy leaders. he has a new book called drone warrior. welcome to you, brett. >> thanks for having me. >> i want people to get a sense of you because here you are a freshman at the university of houston. 9/11 happens. you were planning to do other things with your life. and in november you're standing in front of a recruiter saying i got to get involved in this. >> absolutely. i feel like everyone else, 9/11 upended all of us and it was a wakeup call that there was so much more that i could do. i joined the army with the intent of doing everything i could and the best way i knew how to do that was to join the intelligence corps. >> and you can make decisions on who lives or who dies. >> i rose through the ranks fairly fast and i was given incredible responsibility to really essentially hunt down some of the world's most evil
people so my job was specifically to choose these targets and then find them so they can be captured or killed. >> but there's a chain of command in terms of approval of those targets. >> at the levels we were a especially in the war zones, that delegation was brought to the lowest levels. if somebody like me was dealing with the politics of the decision making process of who should do what, then we weren't doing our job. >> you hauled the head of isis the smartest terrorist you've ever hunted. why do you say that? >> well, considering that despite the fact that he's one of the most evil human beings on the planet and i had to watch the terrible things that he did, we made him very paranoid. we were capturing, killing guys around him, you know, watching the things that he did on a daily basis and getting to understand the mind set of how he operated. the fact is for him to be able to stay alive after all the things that we did and the great men and women were in the
positions i was against his organization, that taking a brilliant mind because when you're on our list it's a bad day. >> so how did he do it? >> there were some reports that baghdadi had been killed by the russians for a couple of weeks. and the baghdadi i know, he doesn't stay. he's not surrounded by all these people. he is moving constantly and we as a operational task force to go after him, we had to move like he did. so our organization was built in a way that could be as mobile as they were because you know, terrorists aren't taking the weekends off. >> and you're not the one that actually pulled the trigger but because of your intelligence, the unit you were with, you became desensitized to death even though you were not pulling the trigger. >> think about it. never before in the history in
the world have we had so much nong about our enemy. with drone technology you see some terrible things these guys are doing but you also see the humanity in it. i see the isis leader that's, you know, driving his kids to the bus stop. a few hours later he's then driving a car into a marketplace to kill innocent people. it's hard to disconnect yourself from it. so it took years for me to do that. >> are they going to have access to the same kind of technology that we have so they can use its in the same way that we do? >> i think they use it a little better than us. they don't have to play by the same rules and that's why you're seeing isis weaponizing them in a way that is better than certain governments have the cape bltd to do. and especially now days when you see this gap closing between the u.s. government's top secret
type drones and consumer drones it's kind of scary to think about all the things you can do with them now and isis, groups like that understand that very well. >> do you think we'll catch baghdadi? >> he's already dead, he just doesn't know it. it's just a matter of time. the u.s. government is out there hunting these guys down every single day and i think i want people to understand and talk to them about who was the next baghdadi. because he's finished but if we're in this business of reven revenge, we've lost the war. there's always going to be an organization or terrorist that hates americans and wants to fight us here on our soil. >> well, now he's off in the world. >> yeah. >> good for you. be right back. thank you.
