stephen paddock's motive for mass murder. >> we've looked at everything, literally, the suspect's personal life, any political affiliation, his social behaviors. >> reporter: but nearly a week after the deadly shooting, investigators remain frustrated by a look of clues as to what prompted the attack. >> in the past,tory rar attacks or incidents, motive was made very clear by a note left, social media, investigators mining computer data. today in our investigation, we don't have any of that uncovered. >> reporter: paddock holed up in a suite at the mandalay bay hotel suite. sources say his arsenal would have cost well over $50,000. investigators also found paddock's car in the hotel parking garage. it held an explosive, tanner right, and at least a thousand
7:10 am
rounds of ammunition. but police say a hero in the form of security guard jesus campos likely interrupted his attack. he went up to the 32nd floor to investigate a room whose alarm went off when paddock fire at him, hitting him in the leg. >> i can tell you this was a remarkable effort by a brave and remarkable man. >> reporter: meanwhile the city is honoring those who lost their lives. volunteers came to build a healing garden that opened last night. the park includes a wall of rem mem brans and a tree planted for each person killed sunday night in the strategy. >> we're really proud of the city, how everybody has pulled together and tried to help with whatever they can to. >> and yet another revelation this morning, this one from the "associated press" which reports investigators are now interviewing call girls after
7:11 am
learned paddock may have hired a prostitute in the days leading up to the shooting. no one has been identified, alex, but they certainly want to talk to anyone that may have spoken with him during that time period. >> anna werner in las vegas. thanks, anna. president trump is keeping a promise he made. on friday he announced more employers can opt out of offering birth control for workers and the other protecting l fw bt americans. all of this after he still has not explained a cryptic and ominous comment he made earlier this week. errol barnett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. the president delivered a one-two as to religious freedom. >> the president believes that the freedom to practice one's faith is a fundamental right in this country. >> the white house cited
7:12 am
religious freedom in issuing new guidelines to allow employers with religious or moral conviction to opt out of the obama mandate to offer birjt crow control. some women's groups are going to sue. >> reporter: the other is overriding a protection for lg fw bt by allowing employers who religious beliefs hire those with their own beliefs. >> mr. president, what did you mean by calm before the storm? >> you'll find out. >> reporter: the president did not tweet out last night. >> i wouldn't say he's messing with the press. >> as for what the coming storm
7:13 am
would be, white house press secretary sarah zanders refused to clarify. it began after a presidential dinner thursday night with top military leader and their bievs when president trump said this. >> do you know what this represents? maybe it's the calm before the storm. >> what's the storm in. >> it could be the calm before the storm. >> reporter: before that meeting trump said tremendous progress had been made against isis amid rising tension with north carolina and ahead of the announcement of iran's strategy. >> we have had challenges that we really should have taken care of a long time ago. >> the president is expected to take steps next week that could unravel the agreement that could freeze iran's nuclear program. that action would be in defiance of top national security advisers like secretary jim mattis and secretary of state rex tillerson. trump refuted remarks that he
7:14 am
was called a moron. n now at an impromptu meeting on tuesday, he said he had no plans to exit and did not call the president a name. the president remains confident in tillerson. anthony? >> thank you. joining us now is political director steve giguere rah. >> good morning. >> what do we make of this cryptic calm before the calm comment as errol bar net called it a riddle. >> we try to figure out what he's talking about. i think the theg that has people a little bit unnerved about this, he did this in front of a lot of military leaders and it led to lot of people with the
7:15 am
tensions between iran and the united states, with north korea, does he mean something more than just throwing a loon out there like he's done in the past? no one really knows. with've asked a lot of questions. we're trying to figure it out. >> in the department of inscrutable what happens with regard to rex tillerson. he called the president a name. we know the president is no fan of insults directed at him. >> he said he still has confidence in rex tillerson. there's a fray in this relationship. i think losing another cabinet member especially after what happened with the health and human health secretary -- >> given the issues with north korea and iran, how much longer can a relationship that is as
7:16 am
frayed at this one can it continue given what's at stake here? >> i think that's a very good question. the issue is how much are people listening to the president and how much are people listening to the president's adviser. if it's that they have a lot to say in this operation and they can continue to run what they're doing parallel to what the president's doing, then maybe it can run for a while. i think the sense is there's those feeks and there's been some reporting that these folks are sticking together to, we with this president to make sure they keep him on the right track. it ooh's bigger issue for those guys as opposed to turning their backs on him. >> there's a lot on the hor is ton. he's going to decertify the nuclear iran deal. what happens? >> that's tough. they call it the worst deal and
7:17 am
called it an embarrassment, but there's not necessarily a slam dunk situation in congress to kill this thing, right? republicans have talked tough, but then you look at especially in the senate, it's only a two-asset majority in the senate and there's some republican senators say, wait a minute, let's step back and look at this. you have pressure from the foreign governments saying don't pull out of this, and so it might not be the slam during. it might be him hints to congress, let him deal with it. >> what's his motive in kicking it back to congress? >> he can say he decertified it. but it's up to congress to fix this. we've seen what happens when he leaves it to congress to fix things. >> and on that note of obamacare, the president is making good on a promise he made to religious leaders. he's narrowing the contraceptive mandate. there's going to be a human cry.
7:18 am
why spoil for an ideological fight right now? >> keep in mind, this is one of the most unequivocal supporters of this president. this a reward to them to say, look, thank you for your support and your candidacying which is important because he's not that popular. look at the birth control and they framed some of this in the deregulation push which the president has been going since his presidency, rolling back the obama-e obama-era. >> tomorrow morning john dickerson's guests will include wain wayne lapierre and senator dianne feinstein. they foiled an isis

7:32 am
>> good morning, guys. >> hi, ed. how significant was it? >> it was significant, anthony. you saw republicans so openly willing to discuss it. usually after the traejgys you hear them say, it's too soon to judge. i was struck that almost immediately you saw some pretty senior republican lawmakers realize that this obscure device that nobody knew about, at least not at the capital, they were able to talk about it and say something needs to be done or we do something in legislation. you heard majority leader misch much connell discuss legislation, refuse to take an issue, but there are enough republicans who can at least compel themselves to hold hearings and debate the issues which is farther than we've gone

in several years. >> what's the medial progress any sis? i think there's an acknowledging asymmet asymmetry. gun right advocates are usually in this for a long hall. there is an asymmetry. talk more about that. >> yeah. you're talking about the idea in the medial aftermath of the strategy, there's a lot of political interest and will, but 30, 60, 90 days out, the only ones concerned are gun ownerlet that dynamic has started to change. we've seen these groups pop up since sandy hook in 2012, now on a regular basis they're putting pressure on lawmakers that would enact legislation to make changes. there are two bys now. another would allow silencers on certain weapons. republicans had planned to vote on these things this week, this past week. delayed those.
7:34 am
these gun control groups, the groups formed by former mayor michael bloomberg, there's a large group have continued to put the pressure on democrats and some republicans, and the senate is off this coming week. that group was telling me yesterday they plan to try to find especially moderate dem rats who have been skittish about this and try to get them on the record saying they support changes in gun policy. >> what is it about bump stocks that has even the nra willing to consider it. >> first of all, did you know what it was a week ago? >> no, i don't. >> i think 99% of people didn't. the other was flank the scope of the death and the injuries that were caused in this shooting. john mccain and others republicans say, look, americans are horrified, the idea they can
7:35 am
do this with a device no one knew about is something that's made us to pause and consider. whether it's change in legislation, either way, they realize this is something that has to be discussed. >> ed o'keefe in washington. thanks, ed. one of the most powerful figures in hollywood is under fire. details on new fallout for harvey weinstein after "the new york times" uncovered a series of sexual harassment there is an added health risk to being overweight.

time now for morning rounds. our look at the medical news for the week. first up, how obesity can lead to cancer. a new report from the centers for disease control found that cancers associated with obesity and being overweight are on the rise. >> these cancers accounted for 40% of the cancers in the u.s. in 2014 and that two out of three diagnosis occurred in people between the ages of 50 and 74. joining us now from los angeles to discuss this is cbs news contributor dr. david agus. what are the main findings from this report? >> first, alex, welcome back. great to see you. >> thank you.
7:40 am
>> there's been a general increase in cancers in the united states and it's tempered by the fact that except for colon cancer because there's screening there's an increase in obesity-related cancers. obesity, which is two-thirds of our population is contributing to this cancer incidence rise. >> did the report address ways to attack this as an oncologist? what do you think needs to be done? >> obesity changes your body. hormones go up and it makes it receptive to getting cancer. what we know is there are ways obviously to reduce obesity, good food choices, encouraging people to walk, and i think the key thing is education. most people don't know of the association between obesity and cancer. so the more we education and the more we develop programs. cities need to develop walking packets. schools need to push peek in this direction so they understand the implications of being overweight. >> all right, doc.

7:48 am
turned institutes of higher learning into the front lines of espionage. daniel golden, welcome. >> thank you. good morning. >> what drove you to write on the subject? >> i spoke with a professor years ago who the fbi was trying to pressure to sfie on china, and i thought this was very unusual, but as i looked into it, it turned out to be quite commonplace, and what i found is that globalizations with essentially creating this kind of covert spy versus spy situation on campus where there are so many foreign students and researchers and visiting scholars, some are looking to poach research or recruit people and at the same time the cia and fbi are using the same tactics to use them to send them home. both sides are exploiting universities and uses the professors and students as
7:49 am
pawns. >> why is it easier on college campuses? >> college campuses are pretty open trusting places they're more open than a gated community. you can walk into an open auditorium or cafeteria and at the same time, they can be very fruitful. a lot of universities do a lot of military and intelligence research. a lot of them shuttle between universities. young students, that's an impressionable able. they can be easily wooed. it's kind of an attractive low risk thing. >> i know it surprised john la carey who called your book timely and shocking. do the universities know this is going on and if so, why do they tolerate it? >> i think they do know it's going on, but they kind of turn a blind eye because they have a lot of financial motives to look the other way.
7:50 am
foreign students provide a lot of revenue. they have a lot of contracts with the government agencies and military, so they don't want to push back there. so they're all looking to be international and foreign branches. >> you talk about an american named glen shriver who became sort of a warning case whochl was he whajd do we need to know about him? >> he was an american from michigan, grand valley state, who went on a brown study program in china. china recruited him soon afters he graduated. i paid him to penetrate the cia and he was caught a. he had a bit of an ego oonld & they praised him a lot. i think the u.s. intelligence said if they're interested in this, a lot of american students could be vulnerable. >> recently harvard's kennedy
7:51 am
school rescinded an invitation to chelsea manning on the campus. what does it say of the relationship between the universities and the intelligence community? >> the kennedy school at harvard in particular has a whole web of enteenageleme entanglements with the cia. in my book i uncover one particular aspect which is that there's a long lean of cia agents or officers have gone to the kennedy school under cover, using their foreign cover. the programs are in a predominantly foreign government leaders and so they get a chance to cultivate kind of these unsuspected classmates. >> the book is spy schools. daniel golden, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. coming up, the game show
