8:08 am
havana is expected to be more than warm. not least because he's hailed for the key role for the new cuba/u.s. relationship. the official government newspaper has informed readers that the pope will leave the island after the irrefutable demonstration of the unity, solidarity and commitment with humanity. francis will likely meet former cuban leader fidel castro as did two papal visitors. havana's main square is being prepared for a huge outdoor mass during which francis will personally give first communion to five children. a sign of growing religious freedom in a country still communist. in what may be a sign in which the church feels kit go slowly the 68-hour visit will not include his usual encounter with poor people or prisoners. the u.s. leg of the trip will. and vatican officials said that
8:09 am
francis will meet privately with victims of sexual abuse by priest. concern for the poor criticism of what francis sees as the excessive greed of capitalism and pointed references to climate change is good bets. he is known for ad-libbing and he speaks from his heart. so pity those doing simultaneous translation from spanish to english and vice versa. as for what else might happen as the papal spokesman warned those of us in the traveling press pool with this pope nothing can be excluded. for "cbs this morning" saturday allen pizzey rome. donald trump's silence continues this morning in the wake of his latest controversy. the front-runner can seld an appearance -- can seld an appearance at a forum in south carolina last night. it's about something he did not say in an answer to the question about the president's heritage and religion at a rally in new hampshire. we have more. >> reporter: well good morning to you.
8:10 am
no one seems to be buying the trump's campaign story that the room was too noisy and trump had a hard time hearing the questions. and now nearly two days later we are still waiting to hear directly from the generally outspoken gop front-runner. >> okay. this man, i like this guy. >> reporter: donald trump's moment of silence during this exchange. >> we have a problem in this country it's called muslims. we know our current president is one. you know he's not even an american. >> we need this question. >> reporter: it spoke more than volumes to his opponents on both sides who heard enough to launch and fuel a firestorm of criticism. >> i think it really shows that he doesn't have the character and doesn't really have the gravitas to be president. >> he should have repudiated that kind of rhetoric, that level of hatefulness in a questioner in the audience. >> barack obama is an american,
8:11 am
by the way, and a christian. >> reporter: trump did not correct the controversial questions made during a packed town hall meeting. his opponent dr. ben carson says he would have. suggesting trump made a mistake but stopping short of attacking him. >> certainly one must always analyze the questions carefully. that's something that has to come to them, because sometimes you go into answering mode without thinking about jie. on friday night trump was scheduled to speak with a conservative thing tank the heritage foundation but he cancelled, citing a need to close a significant business transaction. his campaign released a statement instead saying the media wants to make this issue about obama. the bigger issue is that obama is waging a war against christians in this country. christians need support in this country. their religious liberty is at stake. some of trump's gop opponents brushed off up's lack of response.
8:12 am
notably texas senator ted cruz who said americans are not interested in a food fight between the candidates. we have to see how trump defends himself. he is scheduled to give a speech in iowa tonight. anthony? tomorrow morning on ""face the nation"" john dickerson's guests will include democrat and former secretary of state hillary clinton and republican senator rand paul of kentucky. congress is fighting over the future of funding for planned parenthood. the battle could shut down the government. but the fight has also turned violent. cbs news has learned that law enforcement authorities are seeing an uptick in attacks on reproductive health care facilities. last week a planned parenthood in pullman, washington was burned down in an apparent arson attack. congress has 12 days to pass a spending bill or force another federal government shutdown. but republicans in the house are blocking the measure, because they want to cut funding for planned parenthood which provides women's health services
8:13 am
including abortions. nancy cordes has more on that. >> those are lungs? >> reporter: friday's vote was a reaction to the undercover videos. they show planned parenthood doctors discussing the harvesting of fetal tissue from abortions for research. pennsylvania republican mike kelly -- >> this is about a horrific act that is repulsive and repugnant. it has no place in america and america's taxpayers refuse to pay for -- >> the gentleman's time has expired expired. >> wake up. >> reporter: but cutting it off for a year was largely a symbolic gesture because the republicans don't have the vote in the senate. jan cha cow city. >> planned parenthood does not sell body parts for profit. that is a fact. >> reporter: still a group of conservative lawmakers is
8:14 am
threatening mutiny against house speaker john boehner if he doesn't take the fight further. and use the threat of a government shutdown to force democrats to cut off funding. >> we need to stop -- >> reporter: a strategy endorsed by several republican presidential candidates. including ted cruz and carly fiorina. >> i dare hillary clinton, barack obama to watch these tapes. watch a fully formed fetus on the table. its heart beating. its legs kicking. while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. >> reporter: the videos don't show that, and some republicans are openly warning that the last time the party tried to use this strategy to cut off obamacare funding it was unsuccessful. and led to a 17-day shutdown for which they got most of the blame. i'm nancy cordes on capitol hill. tens of thousands of syrians, iraqis and others
8:15 am
fleeing war and poverty at home are stranded. hoping to reach safe haven, but brocked in the south and the east. the ever changing focus of the desperate migration is in the balkans. we have more. >> reporter: good morning. well even when the refugees do finally move on it hasn't been easy. the latest wave of refugees is on the move. but slowly and not all of them. it's unsure how far they'll get. somewhere around 1,500 migrants crossed from hungary into austria. hungary doesn't want them, they want to keep moving many toward germany. but they represent a fraction of the refugees currently in hungary, not to mention those still back in croatia and serbia. that's the dilemma. everybody wants to get rid of them. but nobody wants to take them. at this crossing from croatia into hungary, the croatians have
8:16 am
been trying to move on the 17,000 they say have come into their territory latter part of this past week. along the croatian border with slovenia, another route to the west a standoff is underway. the slovenians don't want them either. and even beyond these bottlenecks the future is uncertain. austria says it reserve the right to send people back and even germany the most welcoming so far is trying to slow the flow down. any lurch forward is good news to the refugees. whose fits and starts trek has been going on for weeks. mahmoud's family of 17 are from damascus. >> we are really -- we're so happy. maybe -- maybe the entire two weeks, maybe finished now. >> reporter: you have been walking two weeks? >> yes. we have children and we have kids. >> reporter: it's like a game is being played here called pass
8:17 am
the refugee. all of the countries of southeastern europe have been reluctantly accepting migrants and trying to move them on as quickly as they can. that's no deal on where they'll end up and no sign that the flow will stop. >> mark phillips in croatia on the border with hungary, thanks. concern is deepening in washington over russia sending heavy weapons into syria. there are fears the russians might encounter u.s. warplanes operating against the isis terror army. chip reid has more. >> reporter: the satellite photos of the base taken last few days show the transport aircraft, tanks and armored personnel carriers. some u.s. intelligence analysts believe the weapons could be used to attack rebel forces threatening the regime of bashar al assad. russia's long time ally but an enemy of the u.s. russian military intervention in
8:18 am
syria would be a game changer one said creating the potential for run-ins was warplanes that are conducting air strikes against isis in syria. in an effort to avoid potential conflict between the u.s. and russia, secretary of defense ash carter spoke by phone with the russian defense official. the pentagon called it a constructive conversation and in london secretary of state john kerry addressed the escalating u.s./russian tensions. >> i think everybody is seized by the urgency. we have been all along. but the migration levels, the continued destruction, the danger of potential augmentation by any unilateral moves really puts a high premium on diplomacy at this moment. >> reporter: earlier this month, russian president vladimir putin said intervention in syria is quote, not yet on our agenda. some u.s. officials fear that given the latest developments, his plans might have changed. for "cbs this morning," chip
8:19 am

time for "morning rounds" with cbs chief dr. john lepuc and dr. holly phillips. hard to believe but it is time for flu shots again. 40 million doses have been shipped as the cdc tries to get ahead. >> already thinking about the
8:37 am
flu. >> wipes you out. you become a worn out dish rag. >> she came to this clinic in arlington for people 65 and older. those vacuated ed those vaccinated here received a special vaccine four times stronger than the regular one. last year the vaccination rate was only 47%. new research suggests vaccinating younger adults in a community helps reduce the rate of flu in the elderly. dr. cathleen nuzel is a vaccine researcher. >> protecting others should be as good a reason to get the vaccine as protecting yourself. >> last year the vaccine was only 53% effective because the
8:38 am
virus had already mutated. this years is matched better. >> in a typical year it is actually 56% effective. even if you do get the flu after getting immunized the case that you get is likely to be less severe. so it could still be important. >> next up this morning, aspirin's double dose of potentially life saving help. it is being recommended to prevent cardiovascular disease and a form of cancer. they believe the benefits for daily aspirin use outweigh the risks. really big news. >> really is. for years we've known about the cardiovascular benefits of the aspirin in people who've already had a heart attack or stroke. kit lower risk of having another one.
8:39 am
the big was but what about everyone else if you haven't had a heart attack or stroke should you take a daily aspirin. everyone was confused frankly within the med cad community the patients themselves. the task force decided to put out clear guidelines about who would most benefit from daily aspirin therapy both for cardiovascular disease and this time they broadened it out to include colon cancer prevention. so those groups are adults who are between the ages of 50 and 59 years old who are thought to have a 10% or more risk of having a heart attack or a heart disease in the next ten years, who don't have bleeding problems and who have at least a ten year life expectancy. that is the group who would benefit most according to this task force by taking aspirin every day. >> but you have to self identify that 10%. how do you know if you are in it? >> well your doctor can do that. there are online tools. the american college of the cooling and the americancardiology.
8:40 am
and it will calculate that risk for you. the problem is there is no similar tool for the risk of bleeding which is on the other side of that. risk versus benefit. >> how do doctors calculate the risk then? >> john really just brought up the important point. we know there are great benefits for daley aspirin therapy. but there are also significant risks. it can increase the risks with bleeding. and blood clots. so there is actually no one size fits all for who should be taking aspirin. you really have to look at your doctor. look at your risk of bleeding and balance that with your risk of having a heart attack stroke or colon cancer. >> and nearly 40% of americans over age 50 take an aspirin and say it is for their heart. if you have one of these
8:41 am
internal symptoms we've been talking about how do you even know? >> aspirin can cause ulceration you know, in your stomach. or duodenum but really anywhere in the intestinal tract. so you may have symptoms like burning, nausea, that suggest that you are getting an ulcer. but you may not have it. the first symptom may be something like bleeding. how do you know you are bleeding? very often you can see read red from below. and these are the kind of clues that people should be looking out for. and then of course if you have bleeding in the head change in mental status. stroke symptom, weakness. bottom line, if you are taking aspirin and have any kind of new symptom, talk to your doctor about it. >> don't ignore. well a new study looks at the effectiveness of the common
8:42 am
ingredient in antibacterial soap. what is the ingredient. >> tricyclin. and one of the things when you go to the stores now. they are lined with antibacterial. so researchers really wanted to focus on soap. they wanted to compare antibacterial with just regular soap. just to see which one was more effective. what they did was used both types of soap and exposed bacteria, 20 different types to the soap. they did witit the test tubes and with people washing their hands. what they found is after 20 seconds there was no difference in how many bacteria were killed between the antibacterial soap and the regular soap. it actually took nine hours. the bacteria had to be spp exposed to the antibacterial soap for nine hours for it to show any benefit. the bottom line is who washes
8:43 am
hands for nine hours. you what wash them for 20 seconds. >> generally about eight and a half hours. >> i get tired at eight. >> we should know a proposed fda rules calls for makers to show their products. and the fda plans to issue a final rule by september 15 next year. antibacterial soaps are still allowed on the market at this time. finally you might be enjoying aenjoy ing a cup of coffee this morning. but you may want to skip it at night a new study so suggests. caffeine a few hours before bedtime seems to disrupt the body's internal clock. and this could cause daylight sluggishness like jet lag. i'm not shocked. >> decalf decalf. decalf. >> it is not just the circadian rhythm. we know it jazzes you up. >> i find even mid afternoon
8:44 am
sometimes. >> 2:00 p.m. >> yeah. it lingers. >> that is the rule. thanks so much. up next johnny depp's new movie is "black mass" act the vicious boston mobster whitey bulger. but not everyone is thrilled with his portrayal. we'll take look at history versus hollywood. you are watching "cbs this morning saturday." here's a little healthy advice. take care of what makes you, you. right down to your skin. aveeno® daily moisturizing lotion with 5 vital nutrients for healthier looking skin in just one day. aveeno®. naturally beautiful results® there's only one egg that gives you better taste and better nutrition in so many varieties. classic. cage free. and organic. only eggland's best. better taste.

you said this is a family thing and you gave it up to me. boom. don't look to john because he's not going to help you. >> i was just saying. >> you were just saying? just saying gets people sent to allenwood. just saying could get you buried real quick. >> that was a scene from black mass, which just opened around the country.
8:48 am
i stars johnny depp as the infamous james whitey bulger. in 1995 he went into hiding and went caught until 2011. now he's serving two life sentences in federal prison. >> the new movie is getting raves for performances but some victims families and even whitey bulger himself are not happy about the movie. tj english has a new book about bulger titled where the where the bodies were buried: whitey bulger and the world that made him." good morning. >> good morning. >> you saw this film last night. what did you think. >> two things. you can analyze it as entertainment or as some accurate depiction of the bulger story. i think as entertainment it is a good story. people will find it compelling and interesting. as the picture of the bulger story i think it skims the surface. the bulger story is a very complicated story.
8:49 am
maybe too complicated for a two hour movie. and i found the movie to be rather superficial in that regard. >> what what was the biggest detail you think it misses? >> the biggest detail about bulger is that corrupt relationship he had with the fbi and the criminal justice system. was a series of relationships that were in existence in the new england jurisdiction before whitey bulger even came on the scene. that this was a tradition of law men interacting with gangsters to make criminal cases and that bulger actually inherited this rather than created it himself. and so to me the historical context of the bulger story is essential to understand it. >> just how powerful a crime boss was he? >> he was a very powerful crime boss. he had a few edges in the under world that most people don't have. number one he had a brother who was the president of the massachusetts state senate
8:50 am
maybe the most powerful politician in the state. and he had this unique connection to john connolly and the fbi and the criminal justice system. the fact they enabled him, covered for him, protected him really gave his tremendous power in the underworld. >> it's been reported that bulger himself doesn't want to see this. he didn't want to write with johnny depp. he didn't want to talk to him. no interest. so how did he prepare. >> i understand that he watched surveillance photo. he listened to some audio tape they do have of bulger. he may have talked to people who know bulger. but i think he took liberties. he creates his own interpretation of who this guy was. and as i said the performance is one of the best things about the moie. >> the film attempts to show bulger's human side as well. and this is one of the things i think the family objects to as
8:51 am
