7:05 am

7:06 am
this morning, vice president joe biden appears to be distancing himself from presidential candidate hillary clinton by highlighting his closeness to president obama. but biden also faces very tough questions after giving a new account of his role in the decision to kill osama bin laden. major garrett is at the white house in a few hours, joe biden will attend the president's daily briefing. something tells us, major, this will come up. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the joe biden presidential watch is a full-blown distraction for this white house which finds itself in a position to referee a public debate who is more important to the president? a vice president or a former secretary of state. the joe biden presidential tease was on dismay. >> i have now traveled on a million miles as vice president. >> reporter: at a dinner
7:07 am
honoring walter mondale, a democratic vice president who lost the run for president shi. the optics appear lost on biden generating a debate how important he was to the president. one example? travel overseas. >> john kerry is a great secretary of state. hillary clinton was a great secretary of state. but there are times when only the vice president, if it's known of his relationship with the president, can speak for the united states when the president can't be there. >> reporter: biden attempt to diminish kerry and clinton surprised some in the white house as did his revisionist history on privately advocating that president obama boof approve to capture or kill osama bin laden. >> i told him my opinion but to follow his own instincts. mr. president, my suggestion is
7:08 am
we have to do two more things-to-to see if he is there. he walked out and said i'll give you my decision. >> reporter: it appears that hillary clinton hillary clinton appeared indecisive though portrayed herself fully on board in "hard choices." and than this recent appearance in south carolina. >> i was the one who recommended to the president that he go ahead and his advisers were split. >> reporter: the white house refused to play fact checker. >> this is not the first time that a significant political event has prompted different participated in it. >> reporter: at that same briefing, earnest described candidate as a candidate but backtracked and said those who mir biden's service but are become ing tongue-tied' a bit fatigued over the vice president's decision making process. >> john heilemann of bloomberg politics is joining us. >> tongue-tied and just feat of
7:09 am
on the subject of the new york mets which i could talk pretty much all day long. >> we will get to that later. >> okay, good. >> biden. does this controversy play into the decision making process or could it. >> west look. no doubt that joe biden and hillary clinton have spent now the last week basically, shadow boxing from the moment when hillary clinton entered the debate and starting to talk about president obama, how close she was to him and yesterday she rolled out 50 african-american endorsements and a lot of them in south carolina and basically saying you stay out of this race and biden says if i want in this race i'll be in the race. i think the argument is making now is deeply personal and it's not about her or about the debate or anything or the benghazi committee tomorrow. it's gut-check time. >> i'm wondering if he is looking for a reason to go or not to go. >> i think he is looking for reasons to go and not to go. people told me the last few days
7:10 am
he changes his mind on a daily basis about what he wants to do. i have given up the prediction game when it comes to joe biden. i think if he is in in we will see him at iowa this weekend with the rest of the democratic candidates at a dinner. >> he says one thing publicly president, he says something else privately? could they both be true? >> i know -- on the basis of the reporting that i've done, contemporaneously with this but a couple of years ago people around biden said he would, often in meetings, adopt stances that were not his stance in order to try to tease out disagreements in the room and in order to try to serve as the -- doing a service to the president so that he didn't seem as though -- he was not clear about what he would do. he would go off privately later and express his view. what none of us know is what he said to barack obama in private after that meeting. that is a matter that will never be known except by those two guys. >> any indication that paul ryan won't get the entire backing of
7:11 am
the party by friday? >> paul ryan is playing this so smart, the idea of best negotiation you ever get into the one you are willing to walk away. he does not want this job which gives hem a lot of power. i'm looking at the drij udge report. there are is somication that the people on the right don't want him. >> cbs will host a democratic presidential debate on november cbs. embattled syrian president assad made a brief visit in russia and met with president putin. mark phillips is in london with more. >> reporter: good morning. well, it was bashar al assad's 23irs known trip out of syria since the war broke out four years ago and kept secret and not announced until it was over
7:12 am
and a sign of who is running the show on the government's side of the syrian conflict. this was more than a courtesy call. it was a thanks for everything and i mean everything call. with vladimir putin's jets effectively becoming assad's air force the beleaguered syrian leader smiled like he hasn't smiled in years. the russian air campaign's announced intent is to attack isis. but the attacks have largely been outside isis-controlled territories and against other anti-assad forces. some of them supported by the u.s. and the west. the attacks have served to shore up the crumbling syrian regime. they held the syrians for standing up to the military almost on their own. they never have been on their
7:13 am
own, assad has been supported by the iranians an allies from lebanon and the introduction of russian jet bombers with dubious intent may prolong the war, rather than bring it closer to an end. of course, it brings russian planes into air space the u.s. has been using in its anti-isis campaign. a new u.s./russian memorandum september secret on the demand of the russians have been agreed to certain protocols to keep the russian and u.s. planes apart but washington does not constitute u.s. cooperation or support for russian's military activities in syria. >> our reporters reached out to the white house to see if the united states had any intelligence about assad's trip to moscow but officials declined to comment on whether it was a surprise or whether its strategic importance might be. the vatican is denying a report that pope francis has a

7:15 am
of sunday's shooting and say the gun was purchased legally by the well-known music circumstances. >> reporter: good morning. police here say not only did jones own that handgun but records show he bought it three days before he was killed. what the same police have not said is how many times the officer fired at jones or whether jones fired at the officer at all. palm beach gardens police officer on duty in plain clothes and unmarked police car told investigators he was confronted by an armed corey jones. >> the handgun was found on the ground outside the vehicle. mr. jones purchased the handgun three days before the officer involved shooting. >> reporter: jones played drums at the bible church of god in boynton beach which banks said his grandson had no criminal
7:16 am
>> he just going to -- he was a lovely grand child. the thing that happened to him, understand. >> reporter: the officer had a clean record after six months at the palm beach gardens police department. he also served on the atlanta's florida beach from 2008 to 2015. in 2013 he received a written reprimand for repeatedly mishandling evidence and paper work and was called derelict in his duty for careless handling of the documented cases. jones a well-known musician in the boynton area was driving home from a job early sunday when his car broke down on a i-95 exit ramp. he called huntsburger who went to the scene and he called roadside assistance for jones and went home. >> he said thank you for helping me out.
7:17 am
>> he taught me about understanding and patience and he was a teacher of those virtues. >> reporter: okay, so the debate here again now is over a body camera. the officer involved was not wearing one. the debate is whether he should and the unmarked police car that he was driving also had no dashboard camera. >> very confusing story. a major shift this morning in screening for breast cancer. for the first time in more than a decade the american cancer society is recommending that most people wait until women wait until 45 to get an annual mammogram and . >> good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: so glad you're here. >> i think. >> reporter: i'm 41 and not had a mammogram. should i still get one? >> absolutely you should. the guidelines are very clear that we should start screening mammograms at age 40 because there is an absolutely clear-cut reduced risk of dying from
7:18 am
age and those recommendations should not change. >> reporter: what is the american cancer society doing? speaking out of both sides of the mouth. on the one hand, they want to reduce what they call harms related biopsies, which are unnecessary biopsies, fearing anxiety. on the other hand, they say that they stick with their mission to save lives and is there only one way to do that and that is to continue with yearly mammograms. >> i read every line of this. they also recommend against manual exams by your doctor. >> exactly. >> which i've always had in every single one of my visits. >> agreed. my question is how -- if they are saying going to mammograms every two years and not examining yourself, how are the cancers going to be found? we will find them at the size of golf balls which is a huge step back from where we have have been. >> why is screening less a good thing? >> it's not a good thing, gayle. it's done with two goals.
7:19 am
i think they should be focusing their efforts elsewhere. mammograms are a test to clearly breast cancer. this is not one place we should be cutting back. >> to be clear, insurance does cover all mammograms every cost starting at age 40? >> it does but, of course, these guidelines and shifts in positions could influence that >> thank you. >> thank you, doctor. three accused high school hackers could face years in prison. ahead how they changed grades dorm, pamela guard. overskies in the hour by hour forecast. a few sprinkles moving from west to east throughout this evening, too. the rain will lift. today 50s overcast skies. seven-day forecast will show you the 70s on thursday.

8:18 am
seven years what we learned from all of our customers and completely redesigned the process and incorporating more features about family and a lot more features for ancestry and more limited at this moment with health care information so we are returning back all of the carrier information, things like cystic fibrosis reports and other things you can potentially pass down to children, as well as traits and wellness. >> you previously were restricted from these new tests things like cancer or heart disease. what are other things you can't test for now because of the fda restrictions? >> some of the genetic risk factors, breast cancer, different types of diseases you might get and drug response. but those are all things that we are working with the fda to see can we eventually bring that back to the consumer. >> their concern was what? people wouldn't know how to read the information? if you got back previously and you did this yourself you have 60% likelihood of getting breast cancer they were worried people couldn't process that

8:21 am
we enable you to share but it's entirely within your control. there is protections in place like the genetic information nondiscrimination act where your information, your genetic information cannot be used to discriminate against you by employers or insurance companies. 23 and me as a company we do everything we can to protect your privacy. and we said under subpoenas we would do whatever we can to fight those and you have to enforcement. >> have you received request from law enforcement for people's dna? >> we have never hand the defendant over. in our privacy policy we say for some reason we had to we would notify the individual, assuming it doesn't interfere with -- >> 23 and me is owned by google. what about the larger concern that google will control the dna of tens of thousands, millions of people? >> google is a shareholder. shareholder compared to everybody else we have there.
