7:14 am
the arab world. russia says it's in the area to defeat isis. do you believe that is why they are there? >> i believe that there is an international coalition to fight isis in syria and this includes a number of countries and i believe the russians want to be part of that coalition, i doubt any of the members would mind. >> reporter: but they are currently not? >> correct. so the question that it begs is why would they go to syria to fight adash when there is a national coalition in place fighting as we speak. >> what do you believe the answer to that is? what are the motives? >> to support the -- >> reporter: russia says there can be a broad coalition in syria with assad in power. is that conceivable? >> inconceivable. they are proposing a coalition with assad to fight against the adash in syria. he was the person who created them. >> reporter: you believe russia is complicating this effort? >> i think their assessment of the situation and their
7:15 am
not doable in syria may not be correct. >> reporter: would the kingdom of saudi arabia consider putting their soldiers, their boots on the ground in syria to defeat isis? >> we have our aircraft in syria, over syria to combat isis. we continue to be part of this coalition. with regards any other issues, i think we have to consider all of the options and to a cost benefit analysis. >> reporter: what do you think should be done? i mean, what is going to break the log jam in syria? >> i believe there has to be more robust intervention in syria. i believe that the world has to be more firm in insisting that bashar leave. if he wants to leave, that would be preferable. >> reporter: in your view, how long could assad stay in power? secretary of state kerry said assad would stick around until isis was defeated. >> could be a long time. i don't know. i think a transition would
7:16 am
require a dimension, a governing council that takes over authority, prepares the country for elections and new constitution and maintains the constitution of the state and bashar departs. >> you can see the front page of the paper today. you've already had ten countries that have been working for a year with air strikes trying to get rid of isis and isis has grown in power. why, all of a sudden, is russia stepping in and not cooperating with rest of us? what else is russia trying to do by putting its largest military presence in the middle east in decades? >> two things they want to prop up assad and secondly, they want to play a role. >> yeah. >> somebody needs to come up with something, sooner, rather than later. thank you. this morning, a syrian rebel commander is talking about mistakes in the american effort to build up opposition forces. the pentagon has paused 500 million dollar training program and produced only a handful of fighters to take on isis in
7:17 am
holly williams is in turkey along the syrian border. >> reporter: good morning. we spoke yesterday with colonel hassan mustafa a commander in division 30 the home of america's trained rebel fighters. colonel hassan mustafa is too fright i understand of assassination by islamic extremists to show his face. but wanted to tell us about what he called the strategic mistakes made by the u.s. in its program to train and equip syrian fighters. when the first group of 64 american trained fighters entered syria in july, several of them were captured by islamic militants. because we had so few men, they were easy prey, the colonel told us. he claims he gave the u.s. the names of more than 1,200
7:18 am
were accepted. his other complaint is that america left his men vulnerable by giving them too few weapons and too little ammunition. but the commander of the second group of 70 u.s.-trained fighters admitted to us he gave half of his american weapons to al nursa, al qaeda, syrian affiliate. the colonel said the commander should be court-martialed. but it's difficult for the u.s. to give division 30 more weapons and more ammunition when it's already handed over some of those weapons to al nursa. that's true, i agree, he told us. we need to review the whole strategy to make sure our fighters are loyal to syria. america's problem in syria has always been not knowing who to trust.
7:19 am
carefully vetting and training a select group of so-called moderate rebels was supposed to solve that problem. instead, though, some of those fighters and their weapons have ended up in the hands of terrorists. >> holly williams, great reporting there in turkey. thank you so much. a rising number of high school football teams across the country are hanging up their headlights. ahead, why safety concerns are announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by

8:20 am
