7:04 am
drivers across the mid-west as a powerful blast of winter weather made a mess of the roads from nebraska to north dakota. in minnesota last night, a wave of snow barrelled its way through the twin cities, blanketing the streets during evening rush hour. nearly 400 accidents are reported state wide. at looeft one person was killed. dozens more were injured. >> way too snowy for us to continue on the highway. my eyes needed rest. >> it was a similar scene in iowa, where this car flipped over. parts of nebraska saw record amounts of snow. this video was taken from inside a plane landing in omaha. can you see the whiteout conditions. at the height of the storm, the city temporarily suspended police responses to minor accidents. in south dakota, they set records for snowfall. nearly 9 inches fell in sioux falls. iowa and wisconsin heads up, it will be a wet and snowy day for you.

7:06 am
focus on that threat and i want to make sure that we remain focused on the need to bring about some sort of political resolution in syria. >> reporter: yesterday, mr. obama had a similar message for president putin, who said the incident jeopardizes any cooperation with turkey and the u.s.-led coalition to fight terror. that's one of the pressing topics, competing for president obama's attention here in paris. where he hopes to get around 150 countries to limit global warming to 3.6 degrees fahrenheit. that's the level scientists say would prevent natural disasters and floods. on monday the president pressed other top leaders, india and china to cut greenhouse gases. >> i've come here personally as the leader of the world's largest economy and the second largest emitter to say that the united states of america not
7:07 am
creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it. >> reporter: mr. obama is offering to help poor, reluctant countries like india to convert to clean energy and urge business leaders like microsoft founder bill gates to also pick up the tab. now, there are two big impediments to a deal. the cost of converting to cleaner energy and convincing republicans to fund it. now, charlie, the white house argues they can overcome both and that other countries won't cut back on pollution unless america does so, first. >> thank you. hillary clinton talks about her plan to destroy isis in an interview only on "cbs this morning." it includes special forces, airstrikes and no-fly zone in syria. we spoke to the president candidate across from the white house. our conversation began with nato sending combat troops to the middle east.
7:08 am
point that we're not putting american combat troops back into syria or iraq. we are not going to do that. at this point -- >> understand u under no circumstances would you not do that? >> well, at this point i cannot conceive of any circumstances where i would agree to do that. we don't know yet how many special forces might be needed, how many trainers and under surveillance and enablers might be needed. but in terms of thousands of combat troops like some on the republican side are recommending, i think that should be a non-starter. it should be a non-starter both because i don't think it's the smartest way to go after isis. i think it gives isis a few recruitment tool if we get back into the fight. >> tell me how serious isis is and at what level we will do everything we need to do to stop them? >> i think we have to have our objective their defeat. you have to fight them on the air, you have to fight them on the ground and you have to fight them in cyber space.
7:09 am
barbaric enemy that has more money and controls territory. we need to get over the false choice between either going after assad or going after isis. >> i understand that, everybody is talking about that. >> yeah. >> how do you do both? >> well, i think you do both by making it cleared and bringing the russians in. the russians have now paid a big price because of the bomb and their jet from sharm el-sheikh. they've lost people to isis. i think you say, look, we need your -- not your active help, your acquiescence in what we will do in going after isis. so that means will you have to pull back from this area while we go after their leadership and their economic infrastructure. but if you want to be a part of that, we would welcome you. you have a dog in this hunt now, you are worried at what's happening at caucuses. you are worried about isis spreading its ideology.
7:10 am
military defeat of assad. that's not going to happen. it might have been possible a few years ago. it's not going to happen now. >> if there is a no-fly zone, which you are advocateing, and the russians invade that no-fly zone, would president clinton say shoot it down if you give it warning? >> charlie that, will not happen. we will put up a no-fly zone where the russians are clearly kept informed. i want them at the table. they don't have to participate in it. i want them to understand there has to be safe areas on the ground. >> is there some lesson we need to learn and may be iplead to syria, you do not want chaos and the circumstance if libya, because what you have in libya now is an increasing force of isis? >> it's a totally fair question. gadhafi had american blood on his hands. gadhafi was a threat to the broader region. our european and arab friends certainly saw him as that and as
7:11 am
track down his own people and kill them like cockroaches. i think one of the ways we need to approach this is continue the discussion about national unity but as a pre-condition say we need to join together right now before they get a stronghold and work to eliminate isis in cert. there are powers fighting in libya not in anyway identified with or allied with isis. they need to form even a loose confederation to try to push isis literally into the sea before they get a stronghold. >> the question is also how different is she from the president? a lot of it is is the same hype. she clearly says she wants to intensify what we are doing, no special forces, but there is no strong distinction other than no-fly zone.
7:12 am
in every, whether the middle east or china is leadership, leadership, leadership, to which my question is are we not getting that leadership now? which she didn't go to. >> very interesting. >> she was certainly very candid. >> and engaged. we'll have more of my interview with hillary clinton in the next hour. she addresses her relationship with wall street and explains why she want itself to be president. that's ahead. after charlie's interview the state department released about 7800 pages of e-mails on monday. they show discussions about the arab spring and the benghazi attacks, some of the e-mails contain information now labelled as classified. critics say clinton put national security at rick by using a private e-mail server as secretary of state. this morning the presidential front runner faces a new challenge from a former allie. candidate ted cruz now says that dlump not be the party's nominee. the texas senator is turning against trump as he picks up new support.
7:13 am
months from tonight. february 1st is the date of the iowa caucuses. a recent poll there shows cruz is in close 2nd place. major garrett is in washington where donald trump is focusing on other major concerns. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, donald trump tried to make the most yesterday of black pastors that endorsed fewer endorsements and a half filled arena in 5600 people late last night. after the first time as you said, gayle, a republican who stayed closest to trump now quebec his staying power. >> all of these dumba -- politicians said, o, no, that's what they are. >> reporter: he demanded $5 million for charities or he would bug out of the cnn debate. >> should i do it or not? i don't know if i want to take the chance. >> reporter: trump pulled punches when he talked about texas senator ted cruz now nearly tied with trump in iowa.
7:14 am
at some time he's going to have to hit me. it will be a sad day. we will hit back, i promise. >> reporter: that day is already here. >> i don't think donald trump will be our president. >> reporter: cruz has echoed trump's condemnation ought political class. he invited controversy of his own with this reaction to last week's shooting at a colorado planned parenthood clinic. >> here's the simple and undeniable fact. the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are democrats. the media doesn't report that. >> reporter: earlier in new york, trump met with dozens of black pastors to address rarnlly sensitive comments he made in the past. >> they didn't ask me to change the tone. i think they want to cebictory. >> reporter: trump's message for some. >> i see leadership. i see strength. >> reporter: others were skeptical. >> it's very unfortunate the way he has talked to not just african-american community but things he said about mexicans, muslims. >> reporter: ted cruz is in a
7:15 am
more than ten points in two weeks. cruz said yesterday conservatives are coalescing around his campaign. in that continues, cruz says, it's quoting game over. this morning the suspect in the deadly siege of a planned parenthood clinic faces a possible death penalty, robert lewis dear made his first appearance before a colorado judge. he is accused of killing three people at the colorado springs clinic. barry petersen is at the el paso county center with new details. barry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. well, dear faces first degree murder charges and, if convicted, the minimum sentence is life without parole. for the moment, he's in this jail behind me without bond. >> the initial charge is murder in the first degree. >> reporter: shooting suspect robert lewis dear appeared before an el paso county judge monday afternoon on individual living from jail.
7:16 am
about any of these charges, sir? >> no questions. >> reporter: a law enforcement source says dear arrived at the colorado springs planned parenthood clinic last friday with duffle bags full of handguns and rifles, including ak-style rifles. dear is accused of fatally shooting jennifer markovsky, ke'arre stewart and ploys garrett swasey. and video appears to show swasey at the scene of the violent standoff before he was gunned down. the former arraignment will be held next week. after that, the district attorney's office has about two months to decide if it will seek the death penalty. and this friday will be the funeral for officer swasey. norah. >> all right. barry, thank you so mumpch. a deadly shootout caused chaos at a downtown atlanta area hotel.
