st trump," using an iconic picture of his brother at ground zero shortly after the attack. on twitter bush called trump "absurd" and questioned his judgment to be president. trump countered bush was ignoring government failures, conclung republicans needed someone "tougher and sharper." trump has some interesting history on the issue of terrorism and warnings. in one of his books published in 2000 trump warned america was ignoring the threat of terrorism, said a massive attack on our shores was inevitable, scott, in part because "plenty of people would stand in line for a crack at a suicide mission within america." >> major garrett on the campaign for us tonight. thanks, major. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.

well, folks in the northeast had to dig into their closets for winter coats this morning. it was 17 degrees in montpelier, vermont. 19 in massena, new york. and in the town of mexico, new york autumn leaves disappeared in a blanket of lake effect snow. nine inches fell over the weekend. they're digging out in southern california, too. last week six feet of mud covered highway 58 north of l.a. mireya villareal reports it won't be melting away on its own. >> reporter: david quintana is seeing his truck for the first time in five days. >> i think it's going to be totaled. i think it's going to have a lot of electrical problems and
2:11 am
probably some water in the motor. >> reporter: he was one of hundreds of people stuck on highway 58 when torrential rains hit the area. >> i turned and i looked and off the mountain there was just a river of water coming down. and i was really concerned that we were going to get washed away. >> reporter: more than 150 cars and trucks were towed, some to the mojave airport, where drivers scraped off mud and tried to salvage what was inside. back on highway 58 transportation crews were scraping mud off the road. debbie cochran and her daughter, jessica mcdonel, shot this video of the mudslide from inside their truck. >> luckily we weren't farther up where the cars were buried more. >> reporter: the pair waited nearly 12 hours inside their vehicle to be rescued. >> the cars in front of us were floating around, banging into each other. it was really scary, and we were really lucky that we didn't get as much damage as most of these other cars. >> reporter: there are still dozens of cars here at the airport that either need to be picked up or they need to be
2:12 am
towed. and crews right now are trying to scrape up mud, nearly 1 million cubic yards of mud still out there on highway 58, enough to fill 305 olympic-size pools. scott, they're hoping to do that by thursday of this week and open up the roads. >> mireya villareal reporting for us tonight. mireya, thank you very much. well, open skies are becoming a problem too. today the transportation department said it will require most owners of recreational drones to register. kris van cleave reports. >> reporter: the number of drone complaints to the faa has surged from 238 for all of 2014 to 969 and counting so far this year. one of the biggest challenges is finding the operator, something this registry aims to make easier. transportation secretary anthony foxx. how do you plan to enforce this, particularly with people who already own drones? what's their incentive to register them? >> we would expect retroactive
2:13 am
registration. there may be a grace period. this task force will have to come up with those solutions. >> reporter: but how are you going to enforce that? are you going to send the drone police after people? >> the signal we're sending today is that when you enter the national air space it's a very serious matter. this isn't riding your atv on your own property. >> reporter: a new task force will have just a month to recommend how the system should work and which drones should be registered. >> we can't continue to vilify this technology. it's incredible. it will be a game changer in terms of the economy, in terms of entertainment. >> reporter: michael droback runs the small uav coalition. some of its members will be on the task force. >> can they do that in a month? >> do i have concerns about how short of a timeline this is and what it will mean for our industry? of course. >> reporter: secretary foxx gave very few specifics about the registry -- about what the registry would look like. scott, no information on what information will be required or who will have access to it. >> kris van cleave in washington. thanks, kris. tonight israel is building
2:14 am
walls to stop gun and knife attacks by palestinians. there have been weeks of renewed violence. barry petersen is there. >> reporter: it was murder at random last night at a bus station. the attacker and an israeli soldier were killed. as was hefftoom zoroom, an innocent african immigrant in israel looking for work. soldiers mistook him for an attacker and shot him. then he was beaten by israelis who thought he was a terrorist. he later died at a hospital. the palestinians are calling this their days of rage. three weeks of ongoing knife and gun attacks like this one in a tel aviv suburb last week. the attackers can move with ease since palestinian and israeli areas are often side by side. israeli nava segev's balcony overlooks a palestinian neighborhood. being so close sometimes makes
2:15 am
her home a target. israeli police have just divided the two areas with concrete barriers, but that hasn't calmed her fraying nerves. >> we live with a feeling every moment something can happen. and that's a terrible feeling. >> reporter: same area, palestinian side, where hossein daoud, a retired school administrator, believes the palestinian attackers are lone wolves. >> i don't believe that they have a leader for this. i think this is something individual. >> reporter: no one knows exactly what triggered the violence. scott, it may have been about the mosque inside the old city of jerusalem and unfounded rumors that the israelis were going to allow more access to the jews and restrict how muslims could use it. >> barry petersen in the holy land for us tonight. barry, thank you. two more american children were killed by gunfire over the weekend.
2:16 am
in chicago 3-year-old ian santiago was shot accidentally by his 6-year-old brother with a gun found on top of a refrigerator. the boy's father is charged with felony child endangerment. and in hempstead, new york 12-year-old deja joyner was hit in the head by a stray bullet fired from outside her home. police are investigating whether the gunfire was gng raelted. what to do about gun violence is the subject of our new series called "voices against violence." we're hearing from all sides of the issue. tonight the father of alison parker, a reporter for wdbj, our cbs station in roanoke, virginia who was murdered alongside photographer adam ward. >> i'm andy parker. my daughter alison was a journalist that was murdered on live television, and that's why i've joined this effort to change things in this country,
2:17 am
because we are at war. we have domestic terrorism. and through our grief we take action. and the first thing i would do would be to impress upon the people that are pro gun that we're not trying to take their guns away. we're not trying to repeal the second amendment. we can't do that. the nra pumps millions and millions of dollars into campaigns, and it's all coming from gun manufacturers, with the extreme portions and factions of the nra and the gun lobby there is no middle ground. i'm going to be going out with the governor to call out these cowards that are blocking legislation to do sensible gun legislation. i believe that if we are successful, and i think we will be, virginia's going to be the model for 2016 for the rest of the country and they can look to
2:18 am
this state to see change coming. >> the view of andy parker, the father of reporter alison parker. we have important news for women tonight. is any amount of alcohol safe when pregnant? and it's cats versus dogs in a new poll. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. well, things in the bedroom have always been pretty good.
2:19 am
yeah, no complaints. we've always had a lot of fun, but i wanted to try something new. and i'm into that. so we're using k-y love. it's a pleasure gel that magnifies both of our sensations.
2:20 am
right, i mean, for both of us, just... yeah, it just takes all those awesome feelings you usually feel and it just makes them... rawr... dare to feel more with new k-y love.
2:21 am
we know that alcohol during pregnancy can harm the fetus, but is any amount of alcohol safe? tonight there are new answers, and dr. jon lapook has them. jon? >> scott, the american academy of pediatrics is reinforcing previous recommendations saying, "no amount of alcohol intake should be considered safe." the risk increases as alcohol con consumption increases but even one drink a day has been linked to delayed growth. even though these recommendations have been in place for more than 30 years, roughly 10% of women still drink during pregnancy and 3% binge. that's four or more drinks at once. the effect -- a recent study of first-graders found 2.5% to 5% had evidence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. >> but you know, some doctors say if you want to have a glass of wine have one glass of wine. is that not safe?
2:22 am
>> scott, this report says there's no confirmed consensus right now about the dangers of an occasional drink of alcohol during pregnancy. but i spoke to the lead author and she said, look, we know for a fact that alcohol can have a toxic effect on the developing fetus. so she said why take a chance? >> dr. jon lapook. jon, thanks very much. the reviews are in, but can you trust them? that's next.
2:23 am
oprah winfrey is going on a diet again, this time for a ton of money. today she spent $43 million for a 10% stake in weight watchers. she says that she plans to use the company's mobile app and work with a personal coach. the deal, though, is already paying off. shares of weight watchers doubled today.
2:24 am
amazon thinks it knows a fake when it sees one. it is suing more than 1,000 people, accusing them of making money by giving rave reviews online about products that they've never tried. amazon says it undermines trust. and new yorkers are apparently genuinely fond of their dogs. a survey out today by siena college finds dog people outnumber cat people more than 3 to 1. 42% of those who have a dog or a cat say they have cooked special meals for them. 44% have celebrated their birthday. and 24% have dressed them up in a costume. in london they are working around the clock to save time. that story in just a few minutes.
2:25 am
2:26 am
2:27 am
we end tonight in london, where a landmark has fallen on hard times. and in the race to save it every second counts. here's mark phillips. [ tolling bell ] >> reporter: the world's most famous clock strikes 6:00. or does it? big ben's been striking the hour for 156 years. [ bell tolls ] but the thing's been slipping. it was out a whole six seconds last summer. the guys who maintain it like ian westworth have been struggling to keep big ben on time, even using pennies as weights. >> by putting on or taking off a penny on the pendulum like this you speed up or slow down the clock by 2/5 of a second in 24
2:28 am
hours. >> reporter: but now big ben is on borrowed time, so worn out it may have to be stopped and completely overhauled before the 14-foot-long, 600-pound minute hands fall off because the bearings are shot. it would be like stopping the heartbeat of london, says newspaper columnist clinton letts. >> this is the marrow in our bones, this old clock. >> one clock. >> one clock. and you know, the thought of it not being there or one hand flying off or, heaven forbid, o the thing going digital is just too gruesome to consider. >> we rightly expect all sorts of things -- >> reporter: it would be like losing yet another old symbol of london. the much-loved hop-on, hop-off buss are gone to be replaced by these unloved models. the old red phone boxes are only kept around for the tourists since the advent of you know what. and london's famous black cabs are now threatened by uber. if big ben were to go -- >> it would be a calamity, a
2:29 am
catastrophe, a disaster. and r that reason i suspect they will find a way around this. [ bell tolls ] >> reporter: but they're running out of time. mark phillips, cbs news, london. and that's the "cbs overnight news" for this tuesday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us just a little later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm scott pelley.
2:30 am
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to "overnight news." i'm jericka duncan. it's being called the real-life sequel to the movie "goodfellas." and it's 37 years in the making. an aging mobster with a rap sheet a mile long is being accused of taking part in a heist at kennedy airport. lawyers for vincent asaro admit he's no angel but claim the whole case is based on elderly rats and snitches and all of whom either have a grudge or are trying to get out of jail. anna warner has the story from u.s. district court in brooklyn. >> reporter: it was december of 1978 when masked gunmen stole nearly $6 million in cash and jewelry from a lufthansa cargo terminal at new york's jfk
2:31 am
airport. today the first alleged organized crime associate goes on trial in a case that inspired a film classic. >> and these are the guys that jimmy put together for what turned out to be the biggest heist in american history. the lufthansa heist. >> reporter: martin scorsese's 1990 oscar-winning drama "goodfell "goodfellas" tells the story of the new york crime family that orchestrated the brazen heist. and recounts the violent aftermath. robert de niro played james burke, known as jimmy the gent. he was the suspected ring leader of the crime, a 64-minute caper in which six armed robbers broke into the lufthansa facility and made off with $6 million in cash and jewelry. >> how did they force them to open this room? >> by holding a gun to the head of the man who had the key. >> reporter: in real life prosecutors claim one of the robbery's key figures was now 80-year-old vincent asaro, a reputed member of the bonanno crime family. they allege he received $750,000
2:32 am
as his cut of the proceeds. >> he didn't do it. had nothing to do with it. pretty much all the people that did it got murdered by jimmy burke. so i read. sought fact my client didn't get murdered would suggest he didn't have anything to do with it. >> reporter: prosecutors are expected to introduce wiretaps and something that used to be unusual. testimony from some of them who were close to him. that's expected to include asaro's cousin and his former bonanno family boss. >> i think the fear from the mob has totally abated. the code of silence went out. it's history. it's gone. it's never goeb going to be again. >> reporter: former mobster sal polesi broke the code himself when he testified against the late mob boss john gotti. he claims he was asked to take part in the lufthansa heist but turned it down. he says no matter what happens to asaro one mystery remains. >> where is the money? >> just a little taste. >> no one has ever managed to find any of the money. remember there was a few
2:33 am
families involved and yes, some of that money went to some of the participants but a lot of those guys were killed. were they killed before they got the money? that i can't say. >> reporter: now, the judge in this case has ruled that prosecutors cannot reference the brutal killings depicted in the movie "goodfellas" because asaro is not charged with those killings. he does face one murder charge for an unrelated murder in 1969 of another law enforcement informant. the fastest oceanliner ever built is now rotting away at a dock in philadelphia. the "uss united states" made history in the 1950s, but if preservationists don't come one millions of dollars by the end of the month the ship is headed to the scrap yard. edward lawrence has the story. >> reporter: for those who sailed on her it will be a day long remembered. >> reporter: when she left port on july 3rd, 1952 the "uss united states" was considered the fastest and most luxurious
2:34 am
oceanliner in the world. its maiden voyage across the atlantic took three days ten hours and 42 minutes, a record that still stands today. it was so fast the ship's propellers were a cold war secret. the "uss united states" would become a symbol of post-war american pride, patriotism and power. but after just 17 years on the open water the ship would be retired, never to sail again. how much does it cost to keep it afloat here? >> the costs are about $60,000 each month. >> reporter: it's been docked here, on the delaware river in philadelphia, for the past 18 years. and the conservancy that owns it can't afford to keep it here any longer. susan gibbs is the executive director. >> it represents the last, best kind of -- the most iconic achievement in ship building and design here in this nation. it's an engineering marvel, a work of art, and it's our
2:35 am
history. it's our shared history of the nation. it would be as if the statue of liberty was just kind of chopped off at her knees. >> how critical is this point in time? >> we are at the 11th hour. the 59th minute of the 11th hour. we have never been closer to saving the ship, and we have never been closer to losing it. >> reporter: gibbs has more than a vested interest. this ship is in her heritage. her grandfather, william francis gibbs, built the "uss united states." a man with no formal training in marine engineering who taught himself how to build ships. during world war ii 3/4 of u.s. naval vessels built were designed by gibbs's firm. as the war ended, he went back to work on the ship he loved more than anything. his biographer, steven ujifusa, spoke to "sunday morning" back in 2013. >> he was kind of like steve jobs in that he knew a lot of engineering but he was very much aio visnary. imagine taking a structure the size of the chrysler building,
2:36 am
turning it on its side, and pushing it through the atlantic at 44 miles per hour. that's a heck of a lot of engineering. and on top of that make it the most beautiful ship in the world. >> reporter: throughout the 1950s it was traveled by celebrities and royalty. everyone from john wayne and judy garland to the duke and duchess of windsor. and it played a starring role in films like 1953's "gentlemen prefer blondes," alongside jane russell and marilyn monroe. that same year cbs's walter cronkite was a passenger on the "uss united states" as he traveled to london to cover the coronation of queen elizabeth. >> to look at her just could fill you with pride and wonder. she just was a magnificent-looking boat. >> there were more people on this ship than lived in the town that i grew up in. >> reporter: joe roda was an employee on the ship. his responsibilities included delivering telegrams to harry
2:37 am
truman. and he shot this video of the president getting off the boat in france. what was it like being on board? >> it was special. i think that's the only word i could use. >> reporter: anybody who made a contribution tos thi world traveled on board this ship. but cruise ships suffered as jet planes became more popular in the 1960s. in 1967 william francis gibbs died, two years before his masterpiece retired from service. >> what has happened to this ship since it's been retired? >> the ship was withdrawn from service in 1969. a series of plans were advanced and all failed. and so when the conservancy purchased the vessel in 2011 the first time the preservation organization had stepped up to the plate. >> reporter: for four years susan gibbs has been trying to get financing for renovation and a new home that could cost up to $300 million. ideas ranging from a hotel to a
2:38 am
museum or offices. they have weeks before money forces them to sell this piece of maritime history for scrap metal. edward lawrence, philadelphia. y. ta-da! all this devotion only calls for a little bit of dawn ultra. now even more concentrated. just one bottle has the grease cleaning power of two bottles of this other liquid. you still got it, romeo. a drop of dawn and grease is gone. ♪ ♪

people around us. >> you're open -- not every chef is like that. >> i think probably the most brilliant chefs do absorb from their surroundings. >> or maybe they don't admit it? >> or maybe they don't admit it. yeah, they might not admit it. >> fans of ottolenghi's previous cookbooks, who now number in the millions, may find the any one more complex. ottolenghi makes clear this is a restaurant cookbook featuring restaurant food. he says the recipes may take more commitment but they're not out of reach of amateur cooks. the quail took less than 20 minutes to prepare. >> and that whole ethos of cooking in a restaurant is what we tried to bring to the home cook. some recipes might be more complicate, others simpler. but overall it's a slightly more evolved way of cooking. >> you're there to challenge your readers. >> we want to take them to the next step. >> reporter: it's about raising the game. dishes designed to impress guests that look harder to prepare than they were.

and the ball is free! >> reporter: punter blake o'neil fumbled the ball punting it right into the hands of jalen watts-jackson who took it in for a touchdown. >> he scores on the last play of the game! unbelievable! >> reporter: michigan state won 27-23. >> oh, my god! >> reporter: crushing the dreams of wolverine fans everywhere. >> they played their guts out. played winning football overcame so much. and we messed up. messed up the play at the end. >> even in the press box our jaws dropped. wondering how the heck could this have happened? the fans stayed in that stadium for a good 15 minutes after that game ended, stunned. >> reporter: once the shock wore off fans turned to social media, some hurling insults and death threats at the australian-born o'neill. in tweets that have since been deleted. sunday michigan interim athletic director jim hackett fired back in a letter saying, "today i
2:59 am
awake to the shocking reality that our community who cares so much about this program would send hurtful, spiteful and vicious comments to one of our students. i'm asking that our community not lose this game twice by condoning thoughtless comments." >> mistakes are going to happen. it's sport. you can even say you know, kid, unfortunately you blew it. but it stops there. the fact that you're making threats against his life and making a concern for his personal safety, that crosses the line. >> hopefully he gets a shot at redemption. michigan state fans didn't celebrate very long, especially for jalen watts-jackson, the player who scored the game-winning touchdown, dislocated and fractured his hip on the play. he was swatting his teammates away while he was on the ground. he underwent surgery. he's going to be out for the rest of the season. spart rnz still very much in contention for the college football playoffs, got the big one against ohio state at the end of november and of course after that michigan against ohio state. >> that's the "cbs overnight news for this tuesday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us a

little later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city i'm jericka duncan. hay-level security breach. a hacker got his hands on the personal e-mail of two of america's top national security officials. also tonight, trump makes 9/11 an issue in the presidential campaign. house democrats try to keep benghazi out of it. their cars were towed out of the mud. now comes the hard part. the great california scrapeoff. and big ben may need surgery. diagnosis -- bad ticker. >> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." the personal e-mails of two of the highest-ranking national security officials have been hacked. cia director john brennan and homeland security secretary jeh johnson. an anonymous hacker has been bragging about breaking into the
3:01 am
accounts, but now multiple law enforcement sources are telling us that the breaches actually occurred. jeff pegues is breaking this new development in our washington newsroom. >> reporter: scott, this is a criminal investigation, and authorities are working to locate the suspect. he seems to be feeding off the publicity, and that's in part why investigators are reluctant to talk about it, but multiple law enforcement officials tell cbs news that he had unauthorized access to both private e-mail accounts. late in the day the person tweeting under the handle of cwa followed through on threats to release sensitive information. "you know we don't lie. what you have all been waiting for. sorry for the delay." along with that statement came an attachment with the names, social security numbers, and phone numbers of about 20 people said to be affiliated with the head of the cia. in fact, the unidentified hacker, who claims to be a high
3:02 am
school student, says the information came from the private e-mail account of cia director john brennan. whoever it is also claims to have hacked into the private e-mail account of homeland security secretary jeh johnson. throughout the day the hacker appeared to be taunting the officials and others in government. "we are not doing this for personal satisfaction. we are doing this because innocent people in palestine are being killed daily." and "anyone know who we should target next?" in a statement the cia would only say that it has referred the matter to the appropriate authorities. we contacted some of the people whose names were on the list, and there is a common thread. many worked for the obama transition team in 2008. scott, it is important to note the intrusions were to their personal accounts. some of the information taken was sensitive. >> their personal accounts but not their government secured systems that handles classified information. jeff pegues reporting for us tonight. jeff, thank you. well, this is shaping up as
3:03 am
the most critical week for hillary clinton's presidential campaign. on thursday she will testify under oath before the house committee that's investigating the 2012 attack on a u.s. compound in benghazi, libya, an attack which killed four americans including the u.s. ambassador. today we got a preview of the battle to come. and here's nancy cordes. >> and i think the reason for that is -- >> reporter: clinton doesn't testify for three days, but benghazi committee democrats are already defending her with a 120-page report refuting republican claims that clinton was disengaged during the 2012 attack that left four americans dead. the report includes a never-before-seen list of clinton's calls that night. to the libyan president, the deputy chief of mission in tripoli, and top aides. it also includes excerpts from an interview the committee conducted with clinton's then chief of staff cheryl mills, who was asked "did clinton seem uncertain as to how to respond?"
3:04 am
mills said, "no. she was very certain. she said we need to be taking whatever steps we can to secure our people." republicans argue the excerpts were released selectively and that there are still plenty of questions for clinton to answer. >> what i want to know is while violence was going up in libya why was our security profile going down? it wasn't even staying the same. it was going down. >> reporter: on "face the nation" sunday committee chair trey gowdy insisted clinton is not the primary focus of his investigation, even though she's the first to testify publicly in nine months. he slammed a republican lawmaker and a fired former staffer who both claim the committee was designed to take her down. >> i have told my own republican colleagues and friends, shut up talking about things that you don't know anything about. and unless you're on the committee, you have no idea what we've done, why we've done it, and what new facts we have found. >> reporter: for example, he
3:05 am
says his committee has acquired e-mails from murdered ambassador chris stevens that all the other congressional investigations missed, including one e-mail he says where stevens jokes that perhaps he should ask for security from other nations because he isn't getting enough from his own, scott. >> nancy, let's talk for just a moment about the race for speaker of the house. you've learned today that paul ryan, the chairman of the house ways and means committee, is considering running for that job. >> he is considering it, scott, though a source familiar with his deliberations tells me that one thing ryan is not willing to do is horse-trade with those 40 or so very conservative members called the house freedom caucus who say they want promises from their next speaker that they're going to get more of a say. ryan believes that he's got a well-documented record of conservative leadership and that if they don't see that he's happy to keep his day job, his dream job as the chair of the house ways and means committee. >> our woman on capitol hill, nancy cordes.
3:06 am
nancy, thank you. there have been three 9/11, but the terror attacks have become an issue once again. donald trump is using them against fellow republican jeb bush in a war of tweets and sound bites. here's major garrett. >> jeb said we were safe with my brother, we were safe. well, the world trade center just fell down. we lost 3,000 people. it was one of the greatest -- probably the greatest catastrophe ever in this country. >> reporter: trump insists he isn't blaming president george w. bush but arguing that soft immigration policy, poor intelligence coordination, and lack of awareness made america vulnerable. bush defended his brother and dismissed trump. >> across the spectrum of foreign polir.cy m trump talks about things that -- as though he's still on "the apprentice." next week mr. trump is probably going to say that fdr was around when japan attacked pearl harbor. >> reporter: bush is trying to cash in on the controversy with this fund-raising appeal to "fight back against trump," using an iconic picture of his
3:07 am
brother at ground zero shortly after the attack. on twitter bush called trump "absurd" and questioned his judgment to be president. trump countered bush was ignoring government failures, concluding republicans needed someone "tougher and sharper." trump has some interesting history on the issue of terrorism and warnings. in one of his books published in 2000 trump warned america was ignoring the threat of terrorism, said a massive attack on our shores was inevitable, scott, in part because "plenty of people would stand in line for a crack at a suicide mission within america." >> major garrett on the campaign for us tonight. thanks, major. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.

well, folks in the northeast had to dig into their closets for winter coats this morning. it was 17 degrees in montpelier, vermont. 19 in massena, new york. and in the town of mexico, new york autumn leaves disappeared in a blanket of lakeeffect snow. nine inches fell over the weekend. they're digging out in southern california, too. last week six feet of mud covered highway 58 north of l.a. mireya villareal reports it won't be melting away on its own. >> reporter: david quintana is seeing his truck for the first time in five days. >> i think it's going to be totaled. i think it's going to have a lot of electrical problems and probably some water in the motor. >> reporter: he was one of
3:11 am
hundreds of people stuck on highway 58 when torrential rains hit the area. >> i turned and i looked and off the mountain there was just a river of water coming down. and i was really concerned that we were going to get washed away. >> reporter: more than 150 cars and trucks were towed, some to the mojave airport, where drivers scraped off mud and tried to salvage what was inside. back on highway 58 transportation crews were scraping mud off the road. debbie cochran and her daughter, jessica mcdonel, shot this video of the mudslide from inside their truck. >> luckily we weren't farther up where the cars were buried more. >> reporter: the pair waited nearly 12 hours inside their vehicle to be rescued. >> the cars in front of us were floating around, banging into each other. it was really scary, and we were really lucky that we didn't get as much damage as most of these other cars. >> reporter: there are still
3:12 am
dozens of cars here at the airport that either need to be picked up or they need to be towed. and crews right now are trying to scrape up mud, nearly 1 million cubic yards of mud still out there on highway 58, enough to fill 305 olympic-size pools. scott, they're hoping to do that by thursday of this week and open up the roads. >> mireya villareal reporting for us tonight. mireya, thank you very much. well, open skies are becoming a problem too. today the transportation department said it will require most owners of recreational drones to register. kris van cleave reports. >> reporter: the number of drone complaints to the faa has surged from 238 for all of 2014 to 969 and counting so far this year. one of the biggest challenges is finding the operator, something this registry aims to make easier. transportation secretary anthony foxx. how do you plan to enforce this, particularly with people who
3:13 am
already own drones? what's their incentive to register them? >> we would expect retroactive registration. this task force will have to come up with those solutions. >> reporter: but how are you going to enforce that? are you going to send the drone police after people? >> the signal we're sending today is that when you enter the national air space it's a very serious matter. this isn't riding your atv on your own property. >> reporter: a new task force will have just a month to recommend how the system should work and which drones should be registered. >> we can't continue to vilify this technology. it's incredible. it will be a game changer in terms of the economy, in terms of entertainment. >> reporter: michael droback runs the small uav coalition. some of its members will be on the task force. >> can they do that in a month? >> do i have concerns about how short of a timeline this is and what it will mean for our industry? of course. >> reporter: secretary foxx gave very few specifics about the registry -- about what the registry would look like. scott, no information on what information will be required or who will have access to it. >> kris van cleave in washington. thanks, kris.

tonight israel is building walls to stop gun and knife attacks by palestinians. therhave been weeks of renewed violence. barry petersen is there. >> reporter: it was murder at random last night at a bus station. the attacker and an israeli soldier were killed. as was hefftoom zoroom, an innocent african immigrant in israel looking for work. soldiers mistook him for an attacker and shot him. then he was beaten by israelis who thought he was a terrorist. he later died at a hospital. the palestinians are calling this their days of rage. three weeks of ongoing knife and gun attacks like this one in a tel aviv suburb last week. the attackers can move with ease since palestinian and israeli areas are often side by side. israeli nava segev's balcony overlooks a palestinian neighborhood. being so close sometimes makes her home a target.
3:15 am
israeli police have just divided the two areas with concrete barriers, but that hasn't calmed her fraying nerves. >> we live with a feeling every moment something can happen. and that's a terrible feeling. >> reporter: same area, palestinian side, where hossein daoud, a retired school administrator, believes the palestinian attackers are lone wolves. >> i don't believe that they have a leader for this. i think this is something individual. >> reporter: no one knows exactly what triggered the violence. scott, it may have been about the mosque inside the old city of jerusalem and unfounded rumors that the israelis were going to allow more access to the jews and restrict how muslims could use it. >> barry petersen in the holy land for us tonight. barry, thank you. two more american children were killed by gunfire over the weekend.
3:16 am
in chicago 3-year-old ian santiago was shot accidentally by his 6-year-old brother with a gun found on top of a refrigerator. the boy's father is charged with felony child endangerment. and in hempstead, new york 12-year-old deja joyner was hit in the head by a stray bullet fired from outside her home. police are investigating whether the gunfire was gng raelted. what to do about gun violence is the subject of our new series called "voices against violence." we're hearing from all sides of the issue. tonight the father of alison parker, a reporter for wdbj, our cbs station in roanoke, virginia who was murdered alongside photographer adam ward. >> i'm andy parker. my daughter alison was a journalist that was murdered on
3:17 am
live television, and that's why i've joined this effort to change things in this country, because we are at war. we have domestic terrorism. and through our grief we take action. and the first thing i would do would be to impress upon the people that are pro gun that we're not trying to take their guns away. we're not trying to repeal the second amendment. we can't do that. the nra pumps millions and millions of dollars into campaigns, and it's all coming from gun manufacturers, with the extreme portions and factions of the nra and the gun lobby there is no middle ground. i'm going to be going out with the governor to call out these cowards that are blocking legislation to do sensible gun legislation. i believe that if we are successful, and i think we will be, virginia's going to be the model for 2016 for the rest of the country and they can look to
3:18 am
this state to see change coming. >> the view of andy parker, the father of reporter alison parker. we have important news for women tonight. is any amount of alcohol safe when pregnant? and it's cats versus dogs in a new poll. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.

we know that alcohol during pregnancy can harm the fetus, but is any amount of alcohol safe? tonight there are new answers, and dr. jon lapook has them. jon? >> scott, the american academy of pediatrics is reinforcing previous recommendations saying, "no amount of alcohol intake should be considered safe." the risk increases as alcohol consumption increases but even one drink a day has been linked to delayed growth. even though these recommendations have been in place for more than 30 years, roughly 10% of women still drink during pregnancy and 3% binge. that's four or more drinks at once. the effect -- a recent study of first-graders found 2.5% to 5% had evidence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. >> but you know, some doctors say if you want to have a glass of wine have one glass of wine. is that not safe? >> scott, this report says
3:22 am
there's no confirmed consensus right now about the dangers of an occasional drink of alcohol during pregnancy. but i spoke to the lead author and she said, look, we know for a fact that alcohol can have a fetus. so she said why take a chance? >> dr. jon lapook. jon, thanks very much. the reviews are in, but can you trust them? that's next.

we end tonight in london, where a landmark has fallen on hard times. and in the race to save it every second counts. here's mark phillips. [ bell tolls ] >> reporter: the world's most famous clock strikes 6:00. or does it? big ben's been striking the hour for 156 years. [ bell tolls ] but the thing's been slipping. it was out a whole six seconds last summer. the guys who maintain it like ian westworth have been struggling to keep big ben on time, even using pennies as weights. >> by putting on or taking off a penny on the pendulum like this you speed up or slow down the clock by 2/5 of a second in 24 hours.
3:28 am
>> reporter: but now big ben is on borrowed time, so worn out it may have to be stopped and completely overhauled before the 14-foot-long, 600-pound minute hands fall off because the bearings are shot. it would be like stopping the heartbeat of london, says newspaper columnist clinton letts. >> this is the marrow in our bones, this old clock. >> one clock. >> one clock. and you know, the thought of it not being there or one hand flying off or, heaven forbid, the thing going digital is just too gruesome to consider. >> we rightly expect all sorts of things -- >> reporter: it would be like losing yet another old symbol of london. the much-loved hop-on, hop-off buss are gone to be replaced by these unloved models. the old red phone boxes are only kept around for the tourists since the advent of you know what. and london's famous black cabs are now threatened by uber. if big ben were to go -- >> it would be a calamity, a
3:29 am
catastrophe, a disaster. and for that reason i suspect they will find a way around this. [ bell tolls ] >> reporter: but they're running out of time. mark phillips, cbs news, london. and that's the "cbs overnight news" for this tuesday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us just a little later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm scott pelley.
3:30 am
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to "overnight news." i'm jericka duncan. it's being called a real-life sequel to the movie "goodfellas." and it's 37 years in the making. an aging mobster with a rap sheet a mile long is being accused of taking part in a $6 million heist at kennedy airport. lawyers for vincent asaro admit he's no angel but claim the whole case is based on elderly rats and snitches and all of whom either have a grudge or are trying to get out of jail. anna warner has the story from u.s. district court in brooklyn. >> reporter: it was december of 1978 when masked gunmen stole nearly $6 million in cash and jewelry from a lufthansa cargo terminal at new york's jfk
3:31 am
airport. today the first alleged organized crime associate goes on trial in a case that inspired a film classic. >> and these are the guys that jimmy put together for what turned out to be the biggest heist in american history. the lufthansa heist. >> reporter: martin scorsese's 1990 oscar-winning drama "goodfellas" tells the story of the new york crime family that orchestrated the brazen heist. and recounts the violent aftermath. robert de niro played james burke, known as jimmy the gent. he was the suspected ring leader of the crime, a 64-minute caper in which six armed robbers broke into the lufthansa facility and made off with $6 million in cash and jewelry. >> how did they force them to open this room? >> by holding a gun to the head of the man who had the key. >> reporter: in real life prosecutors claim one of the robbery's key figures was now 80-year-old vincent asaro, a
3:32 am
reputed member of the bonanno crime family. they allege he received $750,000 as his cut of the proceeds. >> he didn't do it. had nothing to do with it. pretty much all the people that did it got murdered by jimmy burke. so i read. so the fact my client didn't get murdered would suggest he didn't have anything to do with it. >> reporter: prosecutors are expected to introduce wiretaps and something that used to be unusual. testimony from some of them who were close to him. that's expected to include asaro's cousin and his former bonanno family boss. >> i think the fear from the mob has totally abated. the code of silence went out. it's history. it's gone. it's never going to be again. >> reporter: former mobster sal polisi broke the code himself when he testified against the late mob boss john gotti. he claims he was asked to take part in the lufthansa heist but turned it down. he says no matter what happens to asaro one mystery remains. >> where is the money? >> just a little taste. >> no one has ever managed to find any of the money.
3:33 am
remember there was a few families involved and yes, some of that money went to some of the participants but a lot of those guys were killed. were they killed before they got the money? that i can't say. >> reporter: now, the judge in this case has ruled that prosecutors cannot reference the brutal killings depicted in the movie "goodfellas" because asaro is not charged with those killings. he does face one murder charge for an unrelated murder in 1969 of another law enforcement informant. the fastest oceanliner ever built is now rotting away at a dock in philadelphia. the "uss united states" made history in the 1950s, but if preservationists don't come up with millions of dollars by the end of the month the ship is headed to the scrap yard. edward lawrence has the story. >> reporter: for those who sailed on her it will be a day long remembered. >> reporter: when she left port on july 3rd, 1952 the "uss united states" was considered the fastest and most luxurious
3:34 am
oceanliner in the world. its maiden voyage across the atlantic took three days ten hours and 42 minutes, a record that still stands today. it was so fast the ship's propellers were a cold war secret. the "uss united states" would become a symbol of post-war american pride, patriotism and power. but after just 17 years on the open water the ship would be retired, never to sail again. how much does it cost to keep it afloat here? >> the costs are about $60,000 each month. >> reporter: it's been docked here, on the delaware river in philadelphia, for the past 18 years. and the conservancy that owns it can't afford to keep it here any longer. susan gibbs is the executive director. >> it represents the last, best kind of -- the most iconic achievement in ship building and design here in this nation. it's an engineering marvel, a work of art, and it's our history.
3:35 am
it's our shared history as a nation. it would be as if the statue of liberty was just kind of chopped off at her knees. >> how critical is this point in time? >> we are at the 11th hour. maybe the 59th minute of the 11th hour. we have never been closer to saving the ship, and we have never been closer to losing it. >> reporter: gibbs has more than a vested interest. this ship is in her heritage. her grandfather, william francis gibbs, built the "uss united states." a man with no formal training in marine engineering who taught himself how to build ships. during world war ii 3/4 of u.s. naval vessels built were designed by gibbs's firm. as the war ended, he went back to work on the ship he loved more than anything. his biographer, steven ujifusa, spoke to "sunday morning" back
3:36 am
in 2013. >> he was kind of like steve jobs in that he knew a lot of engineering but he was very much a visionary. imagine taking a structure the size of the chrysler building, turning it on its side, and pushing it through the atlantic at 44 miles per hour. that's a heck of a lot of engineering. and on top of that make it the most beautiful ship in the world. >> reporter: throughout the 1950s it was traveled by celebrities and royalty. everyone from john wayne and judy garland to the duke and duchess of windsor. and it played a starring role in films like 1953's "gentlemen prefer blondes," alongside jane russell and marilyn monroe. that same year cbs's walter cronkite was a passenger on the "uss united states" as he traveled to london to cover the coronation of queen elizabeth. >> to look at her just could fill you with pride and wonder. she just was a magnificent-looking boat. >> there were more people on this ship than lived in the town that i grew up in. >> reporter: joe roda was an employee on the ship.
3:37 am
his responsibilities included delivering telegrams to harry truman. and he shot this video of the president getting off the boat in france. what was it like being on board? >> it was special. i think that's the only word i could use. co reporter: adynybo m whoa ade buntri ttiono this world traveled on board this ship. >> reporter: but cruise ships suffered as jet planes became more popular in the 1960s. in 1967 william francis gibbs died, two years before his masterpiece retired from service. >> what has happened to this ship since it's been retired? >> the ship was withdrawn from service in 1969. a series of plans were advanced and all failed. and so when the conservancy purchased the vessel in 2011 the first time the preservation organization had stepped up to the plate. >> reporter: for four years susan gibbs has been trying to get financing for renovation and a new home that could cost up to $300 million. ideas ranging from a hotel to a museum or offices. they have weeks before money
