7:04 am
syrian rebels in the area appears to show a motionless russian crewman t. rebelsay s he's dead. though it's unclear if true whether le died in the initial strike or fun fire on the ground. helicopters were then seen over the scene of the crash in an apparent search and rescue for the lost crew t. russian defense ministry confirmed one of its f-16 fighter jets was downed by gunfire, insisted it remained in territory. the they released this radar, the red line showing the movements of the downed jets, the turks saying it sleerly shows the jet briefly crossed into their airspace t. region is filled with syrian rebels who are ethnic turks. and turkey has bitterly criticized the russians for the bombardment of the area of its campaign in syria. a u.s. official confirms to "cbs news" the russian plane was in turkish airspace.
7:05 am
it was close, but what was in turkish airspace t. downing of a fighter jet not onlyunder lines that they are fly income crowded skies over syria, russia and turkey are on opposite side. rush backs the assad regime, turkey is also a nato allie t. kremlin has called it a very serious incident. nato is calling for an emergency meeting this afternoon. gayle. >> thank you, charlie d'agata reporting from london. police are on the alert here in the united states. they have been warned a btd the new threat from isis. sources tell "cbs news," the fbi and department of homeland security sent out a joint intelligence bulletin that tells tell about the terror groups newest tactic. a "cbs news" poll have people more fearful of a terrorist attacks. 69% think an attack is very or somewhat likely to happen in the next few months. jeff pegues is at reagan
7:06 am
national airport. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is an intelligent bulletin that went out late monday. it's another element of homeland security as law enforcement agencies, both local, state and federal step up security across the country. the information in this intelligence bulletin that went out monday includes information gathered since the paris attacks. it gives local law enforcement officials the tools they need to counter this new threat from isis of these coordinated attacks. agencies nationwide are retraining officers and active shooter drills. just as the new york police department did on sunday. we saw that where they shut down a subway station. they were working and practicing to neutralize threats. there will be enhappensed security at airports across the country and separately on monday. the state department issued a world wide travel alert for all americans ahead of the busy holiday travel season. officials say terror groups like isis and al qaeda continue to plan attacks, using conventional
7:07 am
and non-conventional weapons. they warn of lone wolf attacks, u.s. citizens should remain vigilant. especially when they are traveling overseas in large public places. now, federal law enforcement officials are still saying there is no credible or specific threat against the u.s., but this intel bulletin and the travel alert suggests they are concerned. charlie. >> thank you, jeff, michael morell, a former fbi/cia director. good morning. >> good morning. >> how serious should we take these travel alerts? >> the one overseas, it's obvious we need to take that serious given what's happened in paris and isis' capably in western university. here at home, i do think we need to think seriously about a possible attack over the holidays, for two reasons. isis has thousands of followers here in the united states. the fbi knows that. they have now been incentivized in paris to do something here. we know those same 350e78 were
7:08 am
focused on the fourth of july. so you'd think they were focused on the holiday period. >> if we have an attack like in paris? what would that change? >> i think this is a fundamental question that should be grappled with in the situation room. if we have a paris-style attack, what would our policy then be vis-a-vis isis. the second question, if that would be our policy the day after, why isn't that our policy the day before? that's the fundamental lesson learned from 9/11. >> that's the question we ask when we saw the bombing of the oil delivery in that side of raqqah. >> that's all rules of engagement, right? >> how good they, mike, when you look at it? from the outside in, they seem sophisticated, organized, a high degree of intelligence? >> it's counterintuitive, but the vast majority of terrorists
7:09 am
are not particularly intelligent, they're not particularly sophisticated. they make a lot of mistakes. the mohammed atta's of the world, the ground commander of 9/11 the masterminds are rare. >> the point is they're willing to die. let's talk about the breaking news this morning, this russian jet downed by turkey. how significant is that? >> all right. i think it's significant in the sense that the fundamental problem that we have to solve to go after isis and syria is assad. all right. there's got to be some sort of an agreement among all the players in what happens to him. all right. so that we can focus the syrian army on isis. this complicates that, because russia is on one side of that, right? which is assad gets to stay and turkey is on the other side, assad has to go right now. it complicates that discussion. >> how are they settled? >> through goes, sitting around the table and talking. >> that will be the main issue discussed between the president and french president hollande.
7:10 am
>> michael morell, thank you. michael is staying to answer your questions on isis and national security. you can join us on our facebook page. a french judge is questioning a suspect who lent his apartment to the organizer of the terrorist attacks. important evidence may be tied to the main suspect last seen across the border in belgium. reports say he may have failed to carry out a planned attack on the same night. brussels is under a lockdown for the fourth day bus of a terror threat. deborah, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the focus of belgium police here is on the hunt for salah abdeslam, europe's most wanted manned and a key suspect in the paris aterrorist attacks. they could not provide them with a vital clue t. suicide vest was found in a people of trash by a street cleaner in the paris suburb of montrouge without a
7:11 am
detonator. police officials say it contains similar explosives to those used in the paris attacks more than ten days ago. french police have not formally linked the vest to salah abdeslam, but it was found near the area where his cell phone was used. belgium police are on a nation wide manhunt for salah abdeslam. he evatd police after the paris attack and was last seen in brusselles t. belgium capital is on its fourth day of lockdown of a paris-style attack on the city remains high t. city schools and metro are closed until tomorrow and public gatherings like concerts and soccer games have been banned. belgium residents like kathy frederick are starting to wonder how long these stringent measures will be kept up? >> we are scared for our children, for ourselves, for our own lives, we are scared to take public transport, that's for sure. >> reporter: adding to anxiety
7:12 am
here is that isis has released a new propaganda video, featuring a belgium jihadi threatening attacks on his homeland. charlie. >> thanks, deborah. president obama meets in a few hours with french president hollande. they will discuss isis and strategy. chip reid is at the white house where it could lead to a larger military rule for the united states. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, a european official tells cbs news property hollande is coming to the white house with a threat from isis requires certain action and the stability of europe is at stake. the white house is the first stop for vice president francois hollande as he visits world leaders pushing for more action against isis. he told reporters, france will intensify its airstrikes. karen donfried says they could push for a stepped up air
7:13 am
campaign since president obama opposes booting large numbers of boots oak. >> i think president hollande says except that's your position. can you step up the various aspects of that policy? >> reporter: also in play, america's rocky relationship with russia, president hollande will visit moscow later this week. the u.s. has been skeptical of russia's involvement in syria and whether it is fighting to keep president bashar al-assad in power or focusing on isis after the group claimed responsibility for bombing a russian plane leaving egypt last month. hollande is expected to continue his call for the u.s. and russia, to fight together in a single broad coalition. the white house says they will continue the conversation with russia, but at this point they are making no promises. norah. >> all right, chip reid. thank you so much. presidential front runner donald trump will bring back water boarding or go further if necessary. polls show trump leading in

iowa, ted cruz is right behind him. ben carson who led in iowa a month ago is now third. the pom find iowa republicans give trump the most support for handling terrorism. nancy cordes reports the billionaire is using a 9-11 memory to back up his claims. >> reporter: the fact checkers make trump seem more convinced he did see thousands of muslim americans celebrating on 9/11. he repeated the claim in ohio and blamed the media on the controversy. >> nobody will believe me. some people believe me. by the way, thousands of people believe me, because they saw it. >> reporter: in columbus, ohio, trump told a supported crowd he is right even if the video he claims he saw doesn't exist. >>ug thoh i have some good people and they checked and they checked and believe me, it's been cleared off, plenty of stuff. >> reporter: for a few hours monday, trump got back-up from his closest gop rival dr. bern
7:15 am
carson said he saw footage of muslims celebrating, too. >> did you see that happening on 9/11? >> i saw the film of it, yeah. >> reporter: that was at 2:00 p.m. by 5:00, carson's camp was telling "cbs news" dr. carson is really not standing by the statement he made today t. ample news footage of celebrations he saw was from the middle east. carson and trump called for more under surveillance of muslim americans at mosques and elsewhere. on the ireilly show last night, trump said they shouldn't accept refugees either. >> when they come in from syria guests of president obama. we shouldn't be taking any. we don't know who they are. >> reporter: he argued his views aren't discriminatory. >> i'm probably the least racist person on earth. >> reporter: trump is on fire for beat theing out a statistic he saw showing most whites murdered were killed by blacks, actually the opposite is true. trump said last night he
7:16 am
shouldn't have to check every fact he sends to his 5 million follower, gayle. >> nancy, thank you. this morning, minneapolis police are looking for three men who reportedly opened fire on a group of protesters. five people were hurt last night but are expected to be okay. it happened near the police precinct, where crowds had gathered for more than a week. many are campening out there in protest over the deadly police shooting of 24-year-old jamar clark earlier this month. witnesses say he was in handcuffs at the time he was shot. a demand for answers this morning in the nfl, the league and players union hold a mandatory conference call today with trainers. this couples after kasey keen a keenum stayed in a game sunday. jeff, good morning. >> charlie, good morning, the injury happened at aritical moment, a minute left, game tied. many focused on a game's score

7:18 am
impairment, the nfl issued a new protocol in 2013. >> you think the game is safer than before? >> reporter: commissioner goodell says concussions are down 25%. >> i think it's safer. but injuries are a part of sports. they're certainly a part of football. football is a contact sport. >> reporter: more than two dozen medical staff, are supposed to keep an eye on players in 2k3w5i78s. including an independent spoter in the press box. the spoter fisher says didn't intervene sunday because ram's head trainer reggie scott was on the field. >> if a trainer is attending a player, kase felt he was okay. he was actually told the leave the field. >> the system fell a part here. we need to fix it. >> more people in the position to say he needs to come out? >> probably more independent people not in the moment of the

that story ahead. as you head out the door, up into space, set your dvr so you can watch "cbs this morning" any time you like. you don't want to miss the author that inspired the upcoming movie "concussion." we'll be right back. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding
7:40 am
if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. the challenges facing so neither does the u.s. army. we train. adapt. and get smarter. every soldier. every unit. every day. not to keep up with change; but to drive it. nobody knows what problems tomorrow will bring.

this morning a figure in the past at princeton university is causing many students to call for a change t. debate focuses on a driving force behind the university's expansion in the early 20th century. former u.s. president woodrow wilson is the name we are talking about. michelle miller is on the campus in new jersey with some protesters who say his name is not worthy to be put on the building. michelle, good morning. >> reporter: before woodrow wilson was the nation's 28th president, he was princeton university's 13th. hits name is literally etched in stone on some building on campus. >> that doesn't sit well with some students. >> people come here. they know about his
7:44 am
national/international policy during his time as the president of the united states. part of the problem is his more complex history, his dirtier history is shoved under the rug. >> she is a part of the justice league. the student group takes issue with wilson's racist past. as president, he worked to segregate federal agencies and during his term as princeton, not a single black student was admitted. >> we have been here. >> reporter: last week some 200 students walked out of class in protest. about 15 staged a sit-in at the president's office. among the group's demands, that princeton rename its public policy school and residential college, both bear wilson's name and acknowledge wilson's racist legacy. they would also like to see this wall mural of millison removed from a campus dining hall. princeton's current president, declined our request for an
7:45 am
interview. >> woodrow wilson had these racist attitudes. we should definitely condemn him for that. also we should remember historic am features are creatures of the time they live. >> reporter: evan dream is with a open colleague. >> with respect to the good and bad with woodrow wilson. he is a part of this history. erasing it will fought do us any favors. >> reporter: the controversy comes at a time of heightened racial tensions on campuses across the country. earlier this month, the university of missouri's president stepped down after african-american students, including members of their football program, complained of his inaction addressing racial issues on campus. and at yale, protests swelled after a fraternity allegedly turned down black women from entering the party. but for princeton students, still trying to find their place in the debate. one thing is clear. >> you know, it's difficult
7:46 am
because you can't tell somebody that they should or shouldn't feel something. but i really think that, you know, his name should be used as sort of a catalyst for conversation and engaging the community. >> reporter: well, in a statement released to the princeton community on sunday, president eisengruber wrote on the race, as a university jts, we have to be open to thoughtful re-examination of our own history and i believe it is appropriate to engage our community in a careful exploration of this legacy. norah. >> all right, michelle, thank you so much. coming up, why did tom brady call out the opposing coach's name in the nfl game? we will show you the unusual play call and to the super star is saying is rex ryan
