people in multiple locations. today paris is essentially on lock down. city facilities including school, museums, libraryies are closed. some bus and train lines are also shut down. police are urging people to stay indoors and are calling for a halt to public events. soldiers are deployed to key sites around paris including the parliament and religious sites. the public prosecutor says it is early but they are working on trying to figure out more about the terrorists and how they planned e attack. inuding ifhere are still accomplice os are co-spiriters at large. france has been the target of multiple terror plots this year. in january the attack on "charlie hebdo" shocked theity and the wor sparking a lockdown and curfew. and in august three amerins thwarted a gunmen on a high speetrn heading from paris amsterdam.
u.s. officls have expressed ement at t sco of the paris attacks. after "charlie hebdo" paris tbe a c with rost counterm coverage. but this has raised concerns of erabilits, nnly of terrorists butn the u.s. as well. >> thank you. security was increased in newyork a er the paris atcks. officers from the cororism response team and otrpecial uts were deployedo popar terrorist sites and the french consulate. new york city is considered a top terror target. the beefed up police presence is precautionary officials say and not the result of any specific threat. > r on the fallout and what it means for security in thisountry wre joinedy b michael morrell in waington. and john fr
you both. as jeff pegues mentioned this opens a lot of questions. what do we know about the attacks so far? >> i think the place to start is the context. and elizabeth mentioned this was the largest terrorist attack in western europe since the madrid bombs. it is the second largest in the west since 9/11. president hollande said this is isis and he also said isis directed this. if that is true, this would be the first isis-directe attack in the west. so this is a huge deal. >> we mentioned in new york you are going to see more and more police officers. if you are in any major city you are going to see more police officers today. are there any specific threats at this point? >> no. >> so the increased presence is basically for? overlay. this is a plan that we literally keep on the shelf. and it is adjusted for the individual situation. so after the "charlie hebdo"
french government installations and journalism locations, especially places that had printed some of the same material. in this attack we immediately looked at it. we took out the "charlie hebdo" package. the french government locations but we also added in places that looked like the targets. crowded placings. time square, rockefeller, places with tourists gathered on a friday night. >> we're looking at the series synchronized attacks that occurred across the city, at restaurants, at a stadium, at a theater. what does it tell us about the planning and the intelligence of this? and the fact that french authorities didn't pick up any of it? >> so this is very worrying. what really strikes me about this attack is the operational security. you are talking about multiple operatives.
bomb, simultaneous attacks, you are talking about keeping that under the radar from french intelligence and french security. that is a very difficult thing to do. it is very sophisticated operational security. that is what suggests to me that this was directed rather than simply a group of self radicalized individuals who came together. and in terms of the potential for such an attack here, i'm deeply concerned about that. the fbi over the last year has arrested a number of individuals who are plotting attacks here. and there is over a hundred ongoing fbi investigations into jihadists here. so i believe that it will eventually happen here. and we are going to have to stay focused on this in a way that we haven't been yet i believe. >> i mean, those are frightening words to here. and you look at the places, the six locations, knowing a the con sertd hall, a cambodian are
stadium on the list. not specific locations anyone would have thought. >> you have put your thumb right on it. we looked at the target picture last night. we did our target selection in terms of where we would put additional resources. but if the attack was on the president's palace and the eiffel tower and a bunch of other places, you know, that makes sense in terms of predictability for security. when you have a bunch of random places that you could find in any big city, that is a real challenge about how to spread resources. and i want to underline what mike morel said. in april we arrested two people for planning a pressure cooker attack in the name of isil and other groups.
in junee w arrestedin people through the joint terrorism task force of the fbi and a number of people in new york or a plot to attack the fourth of july fireworks with a pressure cooker bomb in the name of isil to behead a target in new york city in the name of isil. so these are the attacks that you do have the intelligence on that you are able to stop that don't make the headlines. but when you lookt what happened last night here is group of people that flew under the radar and probably did so using these communications apps that can't be seen by law enforcement. can't be opened by court order that are this new design that popular. >> john miller, michael morel % us. president obama expressed his deepest condolences to the people of france and offered whatever help the french might need. chip reed was in the briefing
room. good morning. >> reporter: president obama spoke to president hollande last support. just as he did earlier here in the evening at the white house. >> this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. we've gone through these kind of episodes our several ss ourselves. and whenever these kind of attacks have happened we've always been able to count on the french people. >> he went to say france is our oldest ally dating back to the american revolution and has always been one of our closest allies. he said americans know all too well what it feels like. the president is scheduled to leave later for the g 20 economic summit in turkey. but obviously this could overshadow the agenda. french president hollande has decided to stay home.
>> the vatican is condemning the attacks in paris in, quote, the most radical way. their describe the violence as an attack of peace for all humanity. he goes on the to say it requires a decisive supportive response on the part of all of us as we counter the spread of homicideemal hatred. coming up the latest from paris on the terror attacks and the french government's
coming up. a victory against the islamic state in iraq. we're in the strategic city recaptured by kurdish troops with american help. >> and offers of support for france pouring in after the terror attacks what. the u.s., germany and other allies are saying. we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this
ps good morning. it is 7:27 on this saturday morning. i'm andrea grimes. the search is on for a missing boy after he disappeared in harlem. he was last seen yesterday morning in front of ps192 on 138 138th street. it's unclear if he attends that school. he's described as 5'4". weighs just over 100 pounds. the nypd has stepped up security after the attacks in paris that left more than 127 people dead. the isis has claimed responsibility for those attacks. police are doing extra patrols. terror forces are standing guard at the french consulate. flags are flying at half staff.
officials are stressing there's no threat against new york city or the united states. now to vanessa murdock for a check on our saturday vanessa? >> good morning, everybody. we're off to a cool start out there, especially when you consider the winds. mosts of in the low to mid-40s right now, montecello the exception. the winds are whipping. it feels like the 30s out there. passing clouds, maybe a few morning. well northwest of the city, possibly a few snowflakes. generally speaking, it's going to be a partly sunny day. highs will be much cooler than yesterday. it will feel like the upper 30s and low 40s because the winds will be gusting as high as 35 miles per hour. winds bottom out at 40. your day is looking spectacular. >> we'll have another local news update in half an hour. i'm andrea grimes.
soo li oca n.t t t pt.etio we learn this morning the terror attack that claimed more than 120 lives is the work of isis. france's president made the announcement and isis claimed responsibility soon after. a syrian passport was found on the body of one of the suicide bombers. welcome back to cbs this morning. >> bombers targeted places of entertainment, including a soccer match. they exploded bombs right outside the national stadium. >> neither the players or the fans knew what was happening. >> some thought the blasts were bombs. >> president francois hollande
says the massacre was prepared, organized and planned from abroad with help from inside france. the city turned into a btle field with hundreds of people running for escape. but at this bataclan theater they didn't get that option. music fans became hostages, trapped inside a concert venue. >> reporter: it must have been absolutely terrible. the police operation to take back the theater if you like happened in gotwo stages. rst,y just surrounded it. by the time they stormed , the attack had been gng to on for almost two hours. there is amazing video shot by a journalist from the big french newspar lemond. he was in auilding across the alley. d you n see that he's captured people having found the stage door making a dash for freedom. and then dragging the bodies of wounded or even dead people down
the people who did get out reported that there was a sort of a balcony. and quite a few people were up there overlooking the main floor. they were able to see what the people in the audience weren't able to see when the shooting started. that these gunmen were spraying the room with bullets. and so the people on the balcony were able to find the exits, and find storerooms to hide in. they were many of the ones who is lives were saved. for more we're joined from washington by national security analyst. good morning. what does intelligence take away from this attack? >> you have a new adaptation. you have the ability of the islamic state to project into a western capital, to organize a very sophisticated attack and to do so under the radar of some of the best intelligence services in the world.
that is troubling news. and certainly a difficult witnessing. it also suggests that these terrorists are realizing they can hit strategic soft targets impact. they don't have to hit the eiffel tower thasmt don't have to hit a government building. they can stage this kind of attack and bring a major western capital to the point of paralysis. >> why france? it's ten months since "charlie hebdo" and 27 people killed in that office and the supermarket. why has france become such a hot spot is this. >> keep in mind that france has been a long-standing point of attack for terrorists. they have had pockets of radicalization among their own population. and in recent years they have been very worried about the population of foreign fighters flowing into the war zones and
and so france has always been a subject of much discussion among the jihadis and certainly a major western target. that is why you have seen these attacks. >> does this mean we have to essentially rewrite our plan book for defending against terrorism at this point? >> 2015 is not the same as 2001. no doubt about that. the geography is more diverse. terrorists have more safe haven from which to plan and they are getting better at social media use and communication. you heard earlier in the broadcast. i do think we have to worry this is a new methodology and certainly potentially facing a new war on terror. this time facing ab islamic state that is able to project into the west. >> do you look at this as a game-changing moment? >> absolutely vinita. one it is the first instance of
into the west attacking a major capital. the islamic state state is no longer just a problem in iraq and syria. it is now a problem in the west. in addition it now moves the battle field. the battle field is now global. this is a problem in the west and in place where is the islamic state is planting its flag around the world. to include the radicalized population in places like paris and even god forbid the united states. >> the attacks seem to target symbolic locations, the world trade center for example. now we're looking at what appear to be random targets. i'm sure they were chosen. but a cambodian restaurant for example. how do you begin to defend that is this. >> this is incredibly difficult. it is hard to defend all "soft" targets, civilian targets, where
people will congregate in the evening for or a sports venue. that is very difficult. and certainly in a free society you don't want to lock down the ability of citizens to enjoy their lives. so this is a very difficult problem. it is also part of the strategy of these terrorist groups where they have decided they want to try to do these attacks are to get their followers to actually attack in place whenever they can, wherever they can. but certainly is a coordinated attack. and you see it can be done even if you hit major soft targets in a place like paris. >> new york is certainly a strong potential target at this point. threat. as a lot of people wake up they are going the see an increased police presence in major cities. why is that happening right now. >> >> one, the authorities don't know what they don't know. they are obviously always worried about potential threads
to an attack like this. potential coordination of broader attacks. they are also worried about individuals who are already radicalized who may be inspired to attack in the wake of something like this. more importantly i they they want to deter anyone thinking about doing something like and certainly to reassure that public. we need to be vigilant. >> thank you. all this -- rather, there is no indication of a link, but the attacks took place in france just hourgs after a targeted u.s. drone strike in syria apparently killing the isis executioner known as jihadi john. chip reid is tracking the story. >> with his angry rants and masked face muhammed emwazi game a global symbol of the brutality of isis. >> my knife will continue to
>> for all the world to see jihadi john, as he became known, beheaded several westerners, including three americans. james foley, stevenotloff and aid worker peter coskosig. the pentagon is, quote, reasonably certain emwazi was killed by a held fire missile strike from a drone in raqqa syria. and emwazi was born in kuwait but grew up in mostly in london, where he became radicalized. he left for syria in 2001u132013. critics have long argued it's done far too little to fight isis. >> i think it is clear evidence that we are making important progress in one element of our
pressure to the isil leadership. >> outside his new hampshire home, james foley's father john saw things differently. back. it won't change the war. you know? we need to eliminate isis. not jihadi john. >> for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm up next, kurdish fighters push isis out of a strategic city in northern iraq.
we have more on the battle against isis. in iraq kurdish forces backed by u.s. air strikes seized a strategic north city thasmt pushed isis fighters out of sinjar. islamic militants overran the year ago. here is the latest from the battle field. >> reporter: the pentagon says america and its coalition allies conducted 250 air strikes in and around the city of sinjar ahead of this ground defensive paving the way for peshmerga forces. but there were a few tense moments as ground troops moved in. first it was just a dozen or so men carefully snaking down the mountain on foot.
the rest of the hundreds of fighters watched anxiously to see what would happen next young and old. volunteer and regular soldiers ready to take back sinjar one step at a time. as more men made their way down towards the unknown we joined them. gunfire rang out from nearby neighborhoods. a convoy of vehicles was reduced to twisted eded metal. most of what we saw was deserted. the trail of destruction is all around us. buildings flattened to rubble. roads scarred with huge craters. the yazidi soldier told us he fled with his baby daughter when isis overran the city 15 months ago. >> this is very dangerous. at are you afraid of as you
>> i'm afraid of the ie ds heds, homemade bombs they left behind and booby traps in the houses. specialist checking today. by the end of the morning it was clear that isis had disappeared, either driven out or had escaped ahead of the assault. most of the gunfire we continued to hear was in celebration. as we came back down from sinjar mountain, we ran into a traffic jam of yazidis who heard isis had been pushed out of their city and they are desperate to get back home. but with all of the destruction, bombs and risk of counterattack, that would be several weeks. >> thanks charlie. still ahead. republican and democratic presidential candidates react to the paris attacks. what they are saying on the campaign trail. and on social media. this is "cbs this morning
full support to france in wake of the terror attack in france. the candidates viaing to secede president obama are turbinebeginning to react to the news. >> good morning. bernie sanders, hillary clinton and martin o'malley have released statements offering their prayers. democrating have been away preparing for the debate. but republican have had more hawkish responses, weighing in with how they would handle the tragedy. >> do you have anything to say about the explosions? >> terrible. >> republican candidates weighed in, offering condolences and
condemnation. front runners donald trump and ben carson were asked to respond while campaigning in florida. >> we have to recognize that the global gentlemenjihadist movement is an existential threat. very different than anything we've faced previously. >> and congress should not allow the west. jeb bush called it the war of our time during an interview with hugh hewitt. >> an organized effort to destroy western civilization. and we have to be serious in engaging, creating a strategy to confront it and take it out. >> and john kasich took a softer tone, leading a prayer for the victim. >> we know this evil can be all around us. >> candidates from both parties weighed in on social media. marco rubio released a statement saying the attacks are a reminder of the increasing
around the world. democratic front runner hillary clinton called the attacks harrowing and wrote she's praying for the city and families of the victims. >> clinton also said "even in this darkest night paris remains the city of light." clinton, sanders and o'malley will have more to say about the topic i'm certain tonight in iowa. >> in our next hour we'll talk with major garrett who is in iowa ahead of the debate. cbs news will bring you that debate. twitter is one of our partners. tweet us your questions for candidates using #demdebate. we'll also have live coverage on cbsn, our 24-hour digital network. >> coming up, reaction from around the world to the terror
you are watching "cbs this morning saturday". now? can i at least put my shoes on? if your bladder is calling the shots... ...you may have a medical condition called overactive bladder or oab. you've got to be kidding me. i've had enough! it's time to talk to the doctor. ask your doctor about myrbetriq to treat the oab symptoms of urgency, frequency, and leakage. myrbetriq is the first and only medicine in its class. myrbetriq (mirabegron) may increase blood pressure. tell your doctor right away if you have trouble emptying your bladder or have a weak urine stream. myrbetriq may cause serious allergic reactions.

i want to take a moment to show you to how the world is responding to the paris terror attacks. san francisco, city hall was illuminated in the french national colors last night after the attack. the blue, white and red show solidarity. >> support was also expressed in light at the world trade center in new york. in london there was a light display at wembley arena. and rio de janeiro, brazil, the redeemer statue was lit up. and in melbourne? >> all the signs of help and response. but social media has been instrumental. people just wanting to stand in support. coming up we'll have the latest reaction to the tragedy in paris. this is "cbs this morning
good morning. morning. i'm andrea grimes. in the news, the nc pd has stepped up security following the attacks in paris that left at least 127 people dead. the islamic state group has claimed responsibility. police here are doing extra patrols across the city. heavily armed antiterror forces are standing guard at the french consulate. flags are flying at half staff. law enforcement officials are stressing stressing there's no threat against new york city or the united states. a gas company that serviced a new jersey house that exploded say no leak was evident the day before the deadly blast. elizabethtown gas says they were not aware the ground floor
area had been illegally converted with gas services off the books. the explosion killed a 27-year- old man and left others in critical condition. some residents reportedly told investigators they smelled gas the day before the explosion anld e owner, but the owner has denied this. 44 degrees right now. let's get over to vanessa murdock and get a check on your forecast. >> well, it's feeling more like the 30s out there because of the wind chills, but right now we're seeing the numbers jump up just a little bit. 46 in the city. 43 in hamburg. as we look at the satellite and radar, we have passing clouds out there. maybe a few sinkles it's going to be a dry day, very blustery as well. winds will be up to 35 miles per hour. >> we'll have another news update in about half an hour. i'm andrea grimes.
right after this. we work weekends here. because it works for our patients. here, at cancer treatment centers of america in philadelphia, we give our patients the freedom to make appointments that fit their schedules, even on weekends. because we believe in being here when our patients need us, so they can keep living their busy lives. weekend appointments are now available here.
ps. new this morning, isis claims responsibility for the terror attacks across paris. and france's president calls it an "act of war." welcome to cbs the morning saturday. >> france is at its a highest security level this morning. here is what we know. at least 127 people are confirmed dead after the worst violence france has seen since world war ii. a syrian passport was found on one of the suicide bombers who attacked the national stadium where a soccer match was under way. all known terrorists are dead but the man hundredtht continues.
hollande declared three days of national mourning. >> with chilling precision, the attackers targeted innocent civilians who just wanted to enjoy a friday night out. the bloodiest scene this morning, a concert hall where an american rock band was playing on stage. elizabeth palmer is there with the shock felt around the world. liz, good morning. >> reporter: great shock of course here in paris. but in their grief, parisians are pulling together as they have before. there are long lines of people waiting to donate blood this morning. no doubt some of it will be destined to the people who were in the worst of the carnage here at the concert hall where i'm standing. >> the attack had been going on for two hours by the time the police moved in. inside four men opened fire on a
band "eagles of death metal." in the end at least 80 died and so did the attackers. three detonated suicide vests. and the fourth was killed by the police. a couple miles away in the main soccer stadium, 80,000 spectators watching a game heard three explosions. all bombs going off in a nearby street. at least four people died there. at first the spectators milled around the field waiting for the all clear. france's president who had been at the game was hustled to safety. in yet another of the coordinated attacks terrorists began shooting at or near three restaurants in a lively neighborhood killing 18 people. law enforcement officials have been wondering aloud whether all or some of the attacker may have been fighters who have come back
from france for the battles in syria. and one of the bombers near the stadium's body did have a syrian passport on it. >> a british american actress recently moved to france. she and a friend were eating at a paris restaurant when the attackers struck. aurora, good morning. >> good morning. hello. >> most of us could not imagine what you probably saw sitting there. what did you first notice and when did you first realize something was a happening? >> when we out for dinner last night and we first realized something was happening when the people at the restaurant told us to stay inside the restaurant. but we ignored them because we didn't think there was anything too serious going on. and then after that we walked through a crime scene and we
something -- something not right. but even then we thought maybe it was an isolated incident. we didn't even know how big it would be. yeah, it was quite terrifying. >> aurora, there was much confusion then. you ended up taking a taxi i think from the restaurant and ended up going by the bataclan theater. what was it like there? >> yes. well we -- we drove past the theater. and we were lucky enough to get a transport home in time. and it was terrifying. the cars were all jammed. and so we were stopped. and we were told to get down in the car, to sink as low as possible as we can into our seats and there were men with guns, military, right next to our windows pointing to shoot.
anything like that before. it was -- it was very -- very for terrifying. my friends and i, we are all just very lucky and happy to be safe and okay. >> here in the united states we are hearing a lot of reports of how the people in paris were immediately responding, telling people just get into my apartment. throwing down sheets if they saw someone just to cover a body. did you see anyone in that frenetic scene? it's obviously still affecting you greatly. >> we -- we saw a lot of restaurants and cafes and places ushering people in to -- to protect them. the feeling of people uniting and coming together to help each
and it was comforting, i imagine. but also lots of people just completely unaware of what was going on in the surrounding area. because they had not heard news of it yet. and that scared me. because i knew what was happening. and it scared me to think that the people walking around without a clue of what was happening. and feeling safe, like i had done half an hour before. and -- and i wish i could have told them that "go inside." but i don't speak very good french. so i was a bit at loss there. >> aurora, thank you so much for being with us this morning on what was clearly a terribly distressing evening for everyone in paris last night. thank you. security in france was increased after the terror attacks. the french president took action. hundreds of extra soldiers are guarding paris this morning. >> france is now under a state
of emergency for the first time in a decade. after an emergency meeting with top advisors today, president hollande raised the security to its highest level and said all measures to protect france's people in territory are being put in place. paris this morning is essentially on lockdown. military troops have been deployed across the city guarding important sites including parliament and religious sites as well. hollande said the military will continue to patrol paris the next few days. todaypeople are urging those to stay indoors. some bus and train lines also shut down. anti-terror police are investigating the plots and the perpetrators behind the attacks that killed at least 127 people. the search for accomplices or
under way. u.s. slaufrtlaw enforcement is offering whatever help is needed. >> u.s. cities on high alert. major cities across the nation increased security out of awe bunz abundance of caution. >> reporter: just hours after the blast, police here in new york mobilized at high profile sites across the city. it is just a precaution with no specific threat. one other cities are taking as well. the french national anthem echoed through the new york city air late friday nights french college students paid remembrance to those who lost their lives in paris. on the street, major american cities expanded law enforcement as the precautionary measure. security agencies in the united
states have stressed that there are no credible threats. but officials have increased police presence at airports and other landmarks. >> our agencies are all operating assuming there is going to be an attack. there is no evidence there is going to be but you act in assumption there is. >> the french consulate in new york city lowered their flag to half staff. and a memorial was hastily constructed to honor those killed. >> people are terrified. >> french citizens in the united states struggle to comprehend the violence suffered back home. >> after "charlie hebdo"? it's like this attack again? it's horrible. >> happened a couple of times this year. and i don't know what to do about it. >> at boston's logan airport, american college student nicole

>> michael morrell, the former number two at the cia joins us again from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> to this discussion that john miller was having and we were talking about. how disturbing is that this completely escaped the radar of french authorities? >> i think very disturbing. you had a number of individuals working together, putting bombs together. multiple locations. that takes a lot of planning. and that flew completely under the radar. a level of sophistication we have not seen since 2005. >> you e mention the sophistication. friday night, and bustling french city and you have them going after bars and restaurants and soccer stadiums. are those targets significant?
mind to strike at the heart of french society. and what they are trying do is cha inning change the political dialogue in france to oppose what the french are doing. that is what they are trying to do but they are going to fail. >> michael you see an evolution in terror here. for a while it seemed like they were attacking prominent targets. now we have seemingly random sites in paris. the game is changing? >> i think so. al qaeda was a group that was focused on catastrophic, large scale, history-changing attacks. that is why they focused on large buildings and aircraft. i think what the terrorists have learned over time is that they can create just as much terror by attacking small targets where people just are going about their daily lives. and i think that is an evolution here that is extremely worrying. >> yes it is a frightening
evolution to say the least. >> tonight, 48 hours will bring you one hour special hosted by norah o'donnell. you can see it just before the cbs news democratic presidential debate. in pacific and up next, details of the american band that was on stage during the attacks at the paris concert hall. plus a look at the long history of that theater which goes back to the 19th century. this is "cbs this morning saturday." bout your coverage, the more gaps you may find.

national security is expected to be a major topic tonight in the democratic debate in des moines, iowa. paris. >> cbs will broadcast the debate. major harris with a look. good morning. >> good morning. >> go ahead. sorry major, go ahead. >> the topic of national security was always going to be part of this debate. the candidates knew it. our cbs team preparing questions knew it. what's different now is the
the national security, and what to do about the terrorist threat to our allies and here at home will now be first up. and for the candidates it presents both an opportunity and a challenge. the challenge is to eject a new ideas and new sense of seriousness and focus about a topic that change as we go through each and every terrorist strike. and the in paris will also i believe catch a cloud over this psychologically. it will change the mood of the debate, take some of the feistiness. and opportunity for sanders and o'malley to inject a fresh idea or fleshresh thought. the script has been flipped by events in paris.
first things viewers will notice. >> we've been talking to our experts. we've been hearing this is a turning point in terms of this war. in particular because it was carried out on such excessable event venues. do you think that makes these candidates rethink all of their strategies to think this isn't the format? >> certainly this isn't going to be the format for some of the contentiousness that might have been there otherwise. and when i talked about the need to inject fresh thought into this? that tick ppicks up on the point you just made. this strike according to all the experts sifting through it now is of a different kind. it is of a different kind in development is and in execution. it is just a as terroristic and veryroad in scope, and alarming in that sense. but it is going to require fresh ideas. and i would suggest bypassen ideas on how to summon the
summit its imagination, its material wealth. military might to confront this challenge because it is now unequivocally career this challenge is not going away. that iraq and afghanisnre not the beginning and end of the so called war on terror. it has many dimensions and this country are approach with it trepidation but has to approach it. and some of the ideas that might be injected that are new into this conversation may propp tonight. >> yesterday bernie sanders' advisors said he was preparing a lot of aga hillary clinton on a rge ofues but he would wait to be asked. do you think that strategy is likely to change now? >> i think that strategy will still exist. because obviously there will be other topics to discuss. there will be a good focus and a necessary focus on domestic poli. and bernie sanders, without necessarily trying to attack hillary clinton always went into this debate wanting to make a central point. that the progressive wing of the
democratic party which depends to be the larger voting congress in caucuses and primaries likes his message. and what he'd like to convey is he's always had that message. some of the positions hillary has recently taken are knewnew. and bernie sanders would like to say then i'm your candidate. that's the more subtle message. but that is the strategy. >> given your knowledge of both candidates and really how viewers immediately respond, what do you think these candidates need to show in order for people to really say the polls might ange? hilly clinton may be not in the commanding lead? >> well if we accept the premise that this is a moment that our country will look across the atlantic and see our friends, the french, dealing with this act of horror.

this step. >> it also stipulates children of gay couples can not be living with their parent, must disavow support and be approved for membership by the church's top leadership. in the past week this attorney fields 2,000 calls from mormons around the world also looking to leave. >> what people outside of the state of utah don't understand is that you can't just walk away from interestthe church. they will keep coming at you. >> here one explains the reason for the change. >> we recognize same-sex marriages are now legal in the united states and some other countries and people have the right if they choose to enter into those and we understand that. but that is not a right that exists in the church. >> kendall believes the backlash is just beginning. >> the damage that will be done
