[ laughter ] [ applause ] >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. so we're very, very pleased to have alex wagner join us once again. >> very pleased to be here. >> thank you. >> the united states announced influenced security measures overnight in response to a potential terror threat against some flights from the filled east and north africa. >> the new ban will prevent passengers from carrying electronic devices larger than a phone inside the cabin of commercial airlines. intelligence indicates that terror groups are looking for new ways to attack planes including smuggling consumer items in various items. >> it will affect ten airports in eight
with details of the new restriction. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. for some time now u.s. officials have been concerned about isis and al qaeda's obsession with bringing down an airplane. over the last year, terror groups have made threats overseas. and now prompting u.s. officials to order collect airports and airlines to make security changes that officially went into effect over night. >> reporter: the new rules by the department of homeland security will prohibit fliers from directly carrying on any electronic devices larger than a smartphone in the main cabin of an airplane. devices must be checked include cameras, laptop computers, the cautionary security enhancements are being implemented at ten different airports in eight different countries across the middle east and north africa. although, officials say this new measure is not country-specific. nine different carriers will be affected by the electronics ban. all of which
into the united states. the new measure will apply to all airline passengers flying from those specific airports, regardless of their preclearance or airline status. senior administration officials remain concerned over the targeting of commercial aviation, including the smuggling of explosives inside consumer items. this video from february of last year, shows the result of a detonated laptop bomb on board a flight gatoring from somalia. the new security protocols will impact about 50 daily nonstop flights to the u.s. and the affected airlines will have just 96 hours to comply, or risk having the faa stop their flights into the country. gayle. >> thank you very much, jeff. cbs news senior national security contributor that's michael morell. the former deputy director of the cia join us from washington. good morning to you,
morell. how unusual is this kind of restriction? and what does it say to you? >> so, it says to me that united states has credible intelligence of a plot to attack an airliner with the larger devices that must now be checked. i think we can take that to the bank. >> but if it's a credible threat, why are the airports being told you have 96 hours to comply? why not make it immediate? >> because it doesn't sound like an imminent threat. it doesn't sound to me like it's specific to one country or one airline. it sounds more like a general plot that we've learned about. a plan to do something significant, but not specific. >> but, michael, the ban is specific in terms of airports and countries. so what does that tell you about the threat? >> so, the fact that it's focused putting explosives into electronic devices and foced
on airlines suggests al qaeda. but when you actually look at the countries, it looks more like isis, particularly when you put turkey in there. so, at this point, i don't think we know which group is behind this. it could be either one. >> michael, at one point, we thought that al qaeda had suffered significant damage to its own strength. it seems to be coming back. >> charlie, that is a really good point. as we have been focused on isis for of the last five years, al qaeda has rebounded. it's rebounded in yemen. it's rebounding in afghanistan. and it is actually a growing problem in syria. in the al nusra group. so, it is a growing problem that we need to focus more on. >> so if in fact american forces are able to retake -- not american forces, but forces opposed to isis are able to run them out of raqqah, what happened to the terrorism front? >> so, two things happened, i think,rl
becomes an insurgency, it becomes a terrorist group in iraq and syria, rather than owning territory and being an arm. the other thing that happened is that al nusra actually has more room to operate. and we'll need to start focusing on them. >> former deputy director of the cia michael morell, thanks for your time. fbi director james comey said he has no information to support president trump's claim that he was wiretapped by former president obama. and for the first time comey confirmed an investigation into potential links between russia and the trump campaign. the revelations came during yesterday's house intelligence committee. chip reid is on capitol hill. good morning. >> the wiretapping accusations began with a series of tweets by president trump. since then, members of the house intelligence committee from both sides of the aisle said there is no evidence to back up those tweets. and yesterday, the fbi director agreed. >> i'm not going to try a

♪ in this morning's "eye on money" the improving economy is fuelling the nation's housing market that's despite the recent interest rate hikes. existing home sales in january jumped to their highest level since early 2007. but the supply of homes for sale dropped more than 7% from the year before falling to record lows. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here. good morning. what explains the market between the market which seems hot and the inventory which seems low?
i mean, the big key factor in this housing has to do with inventory. this goes back to the early days after the financial crisis. two reasons for low inventory, meaning there are just not as many homes for sale as we would like. one is that right after the crisis, a big bunch of institutional money, private investors went out and gobbled up lots of housing units. they kept those units. they didn't flip them. so they kept them as rentals. and the other factor is baby boomers are staying in their homes much longer than usual, at least historically. now, we've got low inventory levels and that's pushing pricing. as housing increases you don't have a lot of choices. >> we heard interest rates are going up? should we lock it in now? >> if you have run the numbers for your family and you know you've got your good down payment set aside, it works for you and it's time to buy a house, sure, lock
knowing what you really have ahead of you. look, mortgage rates historically are very low. i know we go back a year ago, we say 3.6, 3.7, now it's 4.3, 4.4, make sure this makes sense for you. and if it does, if you've done the homework, sure, lock in go out and get yourself a house. >> is this different in different regions of the country? >> it sure does. i found the study amazing. there are some markets where you can buy an average home and maintain it and it costs $1,000 a month. >> okay, i want to tell you. let's look at the midwest. pittsburgh, cleveland, cincinnati, st. louis, detroit and atlanta, i mean, you got to get in these markets with jobs, it has to make sense, but $1,000 a month, that's pretty combeling. >> does the house have a roof on it? >> yes, it has a roof and doors. >> what are the factors beyond that? those prices worki
people who want to buy homes? >> we've got an improving economy. the labor market is getting better. wages are rising and the stock market has been going up. these are all good factors and positive forces for the housing market. go out there look, run the numbers. i say that three time, run the numbers. >> thank you very much, jill schlesinger. ballerina, principal ballerina, thank you very much. misty copeland is back in studio 57 with her new book to help women achieve the best version of their own ballerina body. she says we all have one. and laura dern from her new tv show to become part of the hbo franchise. we'll be right back. >> announcer: this morning's eye on money sponsored by quicken loans. the garden patio will be gone. or you could push that button.

had children. i took my professional life more seriously. and just everything had more depth after i had kids. >> this is my last question for you. you don't do many sit-down tv interviews, why is that? >> because -- because so much of the answer depends on how you feel on a given day. but it lives forever. your opinions about things can change. your view of yourself can change. yet, it's a permanent record. >> and then complains about the fact, you said another 84 you did this or the other -- that's because you engaged the press. and more importantly, i talk for a living. i don't want to talk about me blabbering, you know what i mean. >> i would

athlete, a long journey of figuring these things out and creating a version of a healthy image. >> you were told you were too brown, too old and your body wasn't so great for ballet dancing? >> right. i've been told all of those things. for me, it was just getting myself into the best shape that i could but understanding it's okay to be different. >> what amazes me about you, you have had something in your brain and in your heart that made a difference. that's why you had the strength of will to plow ahead. >> yes, thank you. >> and you begin the book talking about not food, not exercise but mental strength. >> yes. that's a huge part of it. when you think of athletes, you think of those things. to be able to compete and go out there day after day. it's the same thing as a dancer. it lies with all of the pressure in, you know, what it is to be in a competitive field. i think it's so important to be
mentally and emotionally prepared and strong. and i think every person can relate to that. but it's not just about physically, but believing in yourself. feeling beautiful on the inside. and truly accepting who you are. >> great athletes have an understanding, they really do. because the nature of competition is so intense that you really have to have it in your heart and in your brain. tom brady, for example. >> yeah. >> i don't know anybody that could be a 39-year-old nfl quarterback unless they took care of themselves. >> right. and you see the way his life is. the way he eats and all of that, i think goes hand in hand with the mental strength and just having that structure and discipline from being an athlete. >> you talk about yourself being a shy withdrawn kid. but the minute you got on the dance floor, you touched the ballet bar, you knew this was for you. >> something changed. >> what was that transformation? back to charlie's point, i like that it reall
your focus, your determination to do this. >> yeah. i think that being shy and introverted and coming from a household that did not support the nurture level of an athlete or growing up in a six-kid home and struggling financially, it was really difficult for me to feel that i could express myself. and dance was the first time that something clicked in my mind that this is -- i think children have different ways of learning. so it's hard for me to put somebody there and say, i needed music. it was something that connected all of these things inside of me that made me a more intelligent person. >> but right now, woman looking at you right now, we just want your body. >> yeah. >> how did you get to this body? >> you know, it's been trial and error. as i young teenager which a lot of athletes go off on their own and t
professionals at a really young age. a 17-year-old in new york city, i absolutely had no idea how to take care of my body. my mom was a waitress. it was like i've got to fend for myself. i've got to take care of myself. it took many years of discovering, you know, i'm not 13 years old anymore. i can't eat whatever i want. i went through that period of being told to lose weight. you know, i was rebelling. i was 19 years old. i would go and eat a box of krispy kremes i would go to red lobster and eat the cheddar busine biscuits. >> good is not the best. >> got it. >> i think it's understanding not to deprive yourself of anything without living a healthy lifestyle. >> it is an inspiring book as you are an inspiring figure on the stage. misty copeland, thank you for your time. >> i was just
