7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." president obama says he's ready to fight isis. tomorrow he'll telecom gregsal leaders what he has in mind. then on wednesday he'll explain it to americans in a televised speech. >> members say they want to hear specifics. bill plante is in the white house where he wants to hear more about the strategy. good morning. >> good morning. the president is taking a beating for not moving decisive decisively against the islamic militants known as isis or as the president says isil but now after his meeting with nato allies in europe, he says he has a plan to defeat the militants and he'll discuss it with congress and the public over the next few days. >> i'm preparing the country to make sure that we deal with a threat from isil. the president pointed to steps his administration has already taken deploying military advisers to the region and launching over 140 air strikes on isis targets in iraq. >> the next phase is now to
7:04 am
start going on some offense. >> this week the president will explain the threat that isis poses to allies in the middle east and how that threat could spread to the u.s. >> what i'm going to be asking the american people to understand is, number one, this is a serious threat. number two. we have the capacity to deal with it. here's how we're going to deal with it. >> the plan will not include ground troops wu air strikes will continue. nine u.s. allies have agreed to help. the president will also ask and the united emirates to step up. >> we're going to shrink the territory they control and ultimately we're going to defeat them. >> the president will also seek to clarify his message for congress where he's been cr iziticed by both republicans -- >> i believe this president has committed presidential malpractice in his foreign policy. you have mixed messages coming from the administration. they don't have a strategy.
7:05 am
are we going to contain them or are we going to defeat them. >> and democrats. >> i want to congratulate the president. he's now on the offense. he's overdue but the president is now there. >> now feinstein also has an op-ed in "usa today" this morning. she urges americans to understand even though we may be weary of war, how serious is the threat from isis. she writes if the united states fails to unite and lead the world against isis's horrific goals, we could suffer the consequences for decades to come. charlie? >> bill thanks. cbs contributor mike morell is in washington. he's a former cia deputy director. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> following up on the president's report where do you think he's taking us? >> going on the offense, i think degrading the group means taking away their territory and i think going after the leadership. and i think that means both in
7:06 am
iraq and syria, so i think that's what he means and that's what he's going to outline for the country on wednesday. >> that means what in terms of syria. >> syria's the tricking part. syria's the hard part here. even if you got iraq right, if you don't get syria right, then these guys will just go back across the border into syria and have save haven there. so i think what it means in syria is doubling down on the moderate opposition giving them the wherewithal to fight assad around to fight isis. >> mike, the president is giving this speech one day before the 13th anniversary of 9/11. the president said yesterday he has not seen any immediate intelligence about threats to the homeland from isis. is that the metric we should be looking at immediate threat? >> norah, that doesn't give me a lot of comfort. what matters to me is whether the group has the capability and intentions to attack us and think in terms of small-scale
7:07 am
attacks, isis has that intention and those capabilities today. so the lack of credible threat reporting is not the metric i would use. on september 10th 2001, we did threat reporting that ial qaeda was going to attack today. >> what is the president worried about? what is the risk? >> i think the main risk is getting syria right. that is going to be the really long pole in the tent here because we're going to be relying on a group of people in syria who we quite frankly don't have a lot of confidence in, don't have a lot of strength, who we have to worry about doing things with our weapons and our training that we're going to be responsible for at the end of the day. so that's the main thing i worry about here is how to get syria right. >> all right. mike morell, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> and some joyful news this morning.
7:08 am
another royal baby is on the way. we learned early this morning that the duke and duchess of cambridge are expecting their second child. mark phillips is in london outside buckingham palace where we hear the queen is delighted. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, another thoroughly modern royal baby is apparently on the way. the announcement tweeted among other means this morning. the duchess of cambridge, kate again, is suffering from morning sickness and had to cancel a royal engagement and the reason it turns out is happy one. unlike number one, the son, george the new baby will not be expected to be king or queen. the new baby will be fourth in the role. and kate is being treated for her morning sickness at the couple's home in kensington plazaalace at this time, not a hospital so far. the baby like george will be a
7:09 am
prince or princess. the queen has assured they all will have the title. we don't know how long kate is although morning sickness is in the first trimester and people will be counting months on their finger. a spring baby looks likely. >> we saw the scenes where it was announced prince george was on his way. there was huge adulation, celebration. probably not quite as exciting this time. we've been there before. i'm sure we're going to have six or seven months of celebration. >> reporter: so here we go again and why not. in a world of bad news the british royal family is again providing a helpful and happy diversion. charlie? >> thank you, mark. >> that is true. it is some welcome good news in a lot of tough news. >> so george will have a brother orr a or a sister. >> yes.

7:11 am
thunderstorm was so loud. it was pounding. >> reporter: after a long summer of severe water restrictions, some took advantage of the downpour swimming in the street and washing the family car with the falling rain. while the floodwaters quickly recede receding, another round of storms is expected later today. for "cbs this morning," teri okita, los angeles. the southwest saw severe weather of its own. strong winds flipped over four planes at a regional airport. we're tracking more threats for today including snow in some areas. good morning, danielle. >> good morning, norah. good morning, everyone. ongoing now is flash flooding in the phoenix area of 1.3 inches an hour moving through, vivid lightning as they continue to move to the north and the flash flood risk will be in effect through today. flash flood watches are up for numeunderstorms, localized mud and debris flows. all of this from norbert.

infect other kids. our dr. holly phillips is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> do we know what this virus is? >> it's called enterovirus d-368. this one hour in particular causes very severe respiratory symptoms, bad enough to send kids to the hospital or even the icu. >> how is it spread? >> just like the common cold. there's coughs sneezes, touching something a sick person has touched. it really hit missouri right at the beginning of the school year, which isn't surprising. kids are great at spreading germs and kids are reluck tanltd at keeping kids home. >> i always feel like at the beginning of the school year they get sick again because they're around other kids. when do you know to take your kid to the doctor. >> any signs of a severe dmon cold especially in an area hard hit by this virus, you should
7:14 am
head to the doctor but the most important thing to pick up on is any difficulty breathing. wheezing and coughs that won't stop, those are reasons for the parents to head to the hospital. >> is there a vaccine? >> novak seen. treating and supportive care. chucken soup. if you end up in the hospital it's about respiratory support but there aren't any specific medications for it. >> thanks. friends and admirer ers of joan rivers said she would have loved her funeral. rivers was 81 when she died thursday. the city's medical examiner says the cause of death is still undetermined. mourners celebrated her life with laughter and sadness. joan rivers' 13-year-old cooper wiped away tears as he thanked well-wishers outside the family's upper east side home his mother melissa rivers right behind him. earlier in the day the greeshing mother and son were surrounded
