[ chanting ] >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." afghanistan's capital was thrown into chaos overnight by one of the worst terrorist attacks in years. a suicide bomb killed at least 80 and wounded at least 350 more. the area was known for its intense security. >> a number of large embassies are in that area of kabul. so is afghanistan's presidential palace but they do not know what the bomber's target was. debora patta is live in london. good morning. >> good morning. it's also a significant security breach as the suicide bomber mad
explosives at the checkpoint to the green zone, one of the most securest areas in afghanistan's capital. at a country so weary of war it's hard to imagine things deteriorating further. but today that happened when an explosion tore through the heart of the capital. and for the families of the dozens killed and the hundreds injured, this was the worst of days. the explosion was timed for maximum effect. rush hour traffic in kabul when the roads are packed witharily morning commuters. the location equally strategic. at the image of one of the most highly secured areas of the capital, its diplomatic quarters. and the result, devastating. ambulances frantically ferried the wounded, mostly civilians, to hospitals in the area. a never-ending line of horror.
"wall street journal" reporter jessica donati was there. >> reporter: i came down to check on the staff. they were alter rithe were all >> reporter: this despite the fact that the u.s. and nato allies have been fighting alongside the afghan troops 16 years. it's costing america more than 3 $3 billion a month to keep over 8,000 troops in afghanistan, a far cry from 100,000 troops six years ago. the pentagon wants to reverse this. earlier this year john nicholson told the senate armed forces committee that he needed thousands more troops. >> in your overall commanders
assessment are we winning or losing? >> i believe we're in a stalemate. >> so far there's been no official responsibility from any other extremist group. gayle? >> thank you, debora. the president's message has left many puzzled. last night's was unfinished. despite the constant negative cov covfefe. major garrett is at the white house. >> i'm trying to figure out the meaning. gayle, you have one. it's summertime with corncob. i can understand that. the president's tweet this time cannot be blamed on his communications team, something he's been doing quite a bit here at the white house. he owns not only the unknown meaning, the mockery that's going to come this and the
but also it's worth pointing out, at the time when manchester, england, baghdad, iraq, and now afghanistan have suffered terroristic attacks and there are swirling talks about jared kushner. it's important for all of us to keep focused on the important as opposed to just the interesting. white house press secretary sean spicer suggested jared kushner's status as a person of interest in the fbi investigation into possible russian collusion with the trump campaign remains unknown. >> your question assumes there's a lot of facts that are not substantiated by anything but anonymous sources. >> cbs news confirmed last week that kushner, the president's son-in-law, is part of the fbi probe. spicer would not discuss conversations between kushner and russian officials about establishing a back channel system for communications. he also denied the president was
involved. >> you're asking if he approves of an action that is not a confirmed action. i'm not going to get into what the president did or did not discuss. >> on twitter the president declared russian officials must be laughing at the u.s. and for a lame excuse why the loss of the democrats has talkin' over fake news. >> ultimately the messenger is the president himself. he's always proven that. >> reporter: the president downplayed angela merkel's suggestion that europe could no longer fully depend on the u.s. >> he has a lot of respect for her. >> reporter: but on twitter again the president spoke harshly of germany citing a mass ichb trade deficit and says germany pays far less than they should on nato and the military. spicer denied a rift between the longtime allies. >> i think the relationship that the president would have with merkel he would describe as unbelievable. >> talking about carter page, a
one-time foreign policy adviser to his campaign. the president said the investigation is still a witch hunt and carter page should be allowed to testify to clear his name. charlie? >> thanks, major. sources tell cbs news the house intelligence committee now wants to speak with more than two dozen people in its investigation of the russi russian/election meddling boris epshteyn and michael cohen refuse to testify. >> the pentagon says it successfully tested missile defense system that could protect the united states from north korea. the military first fired a target missile yesterday from a remote island in the pacific. then it launched an interceptor missile from california to destroy it and video shows the interceptor launch. the ability to shoot down an intercontinental missile comes just days after the north korean
is at the pentagon. david, good morn. >> reporter: good morning. this was an important demonstration that the u.s. has the capability at least under test conditions to shoot down an incoming icbm. the target, a missile with the trajectory and speed of an icbm was launched in the pacific. minutes later an interceptor missile blasted off from the air force base in california maneuvering into the packet of the icbm traveling at roughly four miles per second. according to the pentagon defense agency the kill vehicle destroyed the target in a direct collision. 36 are based in silos in california and alaska. they go on alert every time the u.s. expects another missile test by north korea, but until now the system had never been tested against a missile
with a nuclear warhead. this test which cost $244 million and was nearly three years in the planning brings the overall success rate to ten intercepts in 18 tries. a modest record even though test conditions allow them to move powerful radars like this c-band radar into position. >> the most realistic test, the only true test would be if north korea were to launch something at the united states. nobody wants that kind of real lichl. >> if there was little or no warning the u.s. would have to launch several so that if one missed the second or third might hit. >> in that sense you also reduce the risk of any one particular of increase the effectiveness, the likelihood that you're going to kill it. >> it's hard to thinkf
united states in an arms race with an impoverished country like north korea but that's essentially what's happening. u.s. racing to keep ahead of north korean missiles. gayle? >> it is hard to think. a jetblue flight had to make an unplanned landing in michigan. demarco morgan is here with how a fire was caused by a lithium battery in laptop officials believe. good morning. >> good morning. the flight left jfk airport and was headed for san francisco when not long after smoke started coming out of a backpack. that's when the pilot decided to divert to grand rapids, michigan. shortly after it left from new york tuesday passengers started to notice something was wrong. >> we're at 35,000 feet and all of a sudden we hear
announcement and we look back in row 25 and we saw everybody standing up and smoke coming around. we didn't know what was going on. >> the passenger was on the flight with his daughter caylee. >> i had no idea what was going on. >> she says the smoke came from a portable laptop charger in a backpa backpack. the fire was out before it landed but the plane was on the tar mark in grand rapids for three hours. jetblue in a statement said the flight. most rechargeable electronic device like laptops are powered by lithium ion batteries. this year there have been 12-related incidents caused by

shot being fired but he faces an aggravated assault charge. police say it could have been much worse. >> you're going to go to the hospital, all right? >> reporter: this amateur video captured from inside orlando international airport's rental care airport appears to show police negotiating with a suspected gunman. >> i saw people started running around, dropping suitcases, but then i saw guy right there and i kind of froze. i didn't know what to do. the guy had the gun to his head. >> reporter: the crisis ended without any shots being fire and with officers arresting 26-year-old michael pettigrew. >> our negotiators did a phenomenal john talking with the suspect for about two hours and finally got him to peacefully surrender. he's been committed under the baker act for a mental evaluation. >> reporter: police recovered this gun at the scene but it turned out to be
>> he did point the gun at the officers. that's why there are pending charges on him and he also pointed the gun at himself, making several statements that he wanted the officers to shoot him. so we knew he was in some type of mental crisis. >> reporter: hundreds of police officers from central florida responded leaving at least one of the terminals and roads into the aurpt shut down. >> there was a lot more and more police, homeland security, s.w.a.t. team. i'm hoping that he's incapacitated now or in custody. >> reporter: airport operations are back to normal this morning. the good news is no one was hurt during that incident. norah? >> that is good news. thank you so much, omar. the man accused of a deadly stabbing spree on a portland, oregon, commuter train made several outbursts during his court appearance. 35-year-old christian was charged. he's accused of going on a hate tirade against two teenagers and

also former national security adviser michael flynn has agreed to hand over business records and personal documents requested in the intelligence s&p. james lankford is a member of the intelligence committee. he joins us from oklahoma city. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> where is your investigation and who do you expect to call next? >> i won't say who we're calling next. we're pretty thorough in our investigation. we've already done about three dozen witnesses already and we'll be able to work through process consistently. we do have documents that you just mentioned through michael flynn that we're working for. we did an initial subpoena of his records. we went back and subpoenaed his business records. we're getting those and we're working through the process to get that. we're going to go wherever the facts go, that's the key thing. . what are you looking for? >> i would say we've got t
key areas. the most obvious one is what did the russians do to try to interfere in our election. the second one, was there any american involved in helping the russians into meddling with our election. third one deals with classified documents and the leaking. so the fbi has an investigation. they're working on criminal probes. we're working on oversight of the fbi investigation, making sure they see every document. we also have policy ding iss we've got to work through long term for nation. so there's obviously house investigation, senate investigation, fbi investigation. we de confliconflict all the ti make sure we're not stepping on one another but we're also running independently. >> there are reports on jared kushner that he wanted to set up back channel communications with russia and there are some calls for his security clearance to be reviewed. what do you think about that? >> i think the security clearance has been reviewed. i think we'll work through the process to get through the res
wheel ask the same questions and work to get direct information from hum. >> do you think he should continue to have security clearance? last year you called for her security clearance to be revoke while she was under investigation. >> that was a very different type of investigation. >> how so? >> with classified documents that had been moved to someone's home versus having a conversation during a transition time. >> do you see anything inappropriate about jared kushner trying to set up back channel communications with the russians? >> we're trying to find out more of why for that. again, first question is, yes, it's entirely appropriate to be able to have communications with every government, especially the larger governments like russia and china and others to have some sort of ongoing communication. we're trying to figure out exactly why for him in particular was the reason to have back channels. one thing to have it but another for others in white house. ha's a very reasonable question. we ar going to look to get
you're president and senior adviser to a president who's already taken office? >> well, i think that's not a problem actually. i would expect every white house while they're setting up to require conversations they'll have once the administration begin. you don't want anyone calling on the first day on january 20th saying, hi, my name is and we want to set up some sort of system in process. this seems to be a back channel separate from normal communications. that's part of the question. u we should have ongoing communication with multiple entities. >> senator, what bothers you most about all of this in terms of what you have seen and what you have heard and what you have red? what is it that bothers you? >> well, i would tell you there are several things that bother me. number one is the russians want to interfere in our election and they seem to have created quite a stir and chaos across the country. that was actuallyir
our democracy like they work to destabilize so many democracies around the world. second if there's anyone engaejed in forp power and our elections, that's a real problem. we've got to clear it up, both for the sake of the president and the presidency but we've got to resolve this long term and get the facts out. right now there's so many unnamed sources and places, this creates instability many united states. we need to get this resolvet for me, i'm glad there's an independent council working directly with the fbi. i was concerned there would be a separate one that would take longer. you can recall the time during the reagan administration. that was six years of independent counsel. let's keep moving on this, get the actually facts out and get it resolved. >> all right, senator lankford. thank you. >> thank you. a local tv anchor turned her business into a

nasa this morning will outline its very first mission directly into the sun's atmosphere. the solar probe plus is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2018. it will orbit within 4 million miles from the sun's surface. that's about seven times closer than the hee owe spacecraft got in 1976. >> at its closest approach the probe will hurs hurtle around t sun. that's faster than one second. michio kaku is a physics professor at new york city university. he's seated at the table. good to have you here. >> i'm glad to be here. >> what does nasa hop
>> this is embarrassing. we're 50 years into space age. we visited the comet and asteroids but we never visited the sun. >> why? >> we've been looking for life in mars. that's why we went to the moons of jupiter and saturn looking per evidence of life and oceans out there. so we neglected the sun. but the sun controls space weather, the solar winds. it can damage our satellites, injure our astronauts, in the mission to mars wipe out power plants on the planet earth. that's why it's important that we understand the solar wind. >> to follow up on gayle's question, why have we not done this. >> it is difficult. with very to do a skimming of the sun by four million miles. that means we're going to whip around venus. several times to get right in position so we can make a close encounter with the sun and the heat shields have to
temperatures of 2,500, 2,600 degrees fahrenheit. >> sometimes it's difficult to get close to something that's hot. >> that's what i was thinking. >> how are they going to do that? >> they have heat shields to withstand the blistering hot temperatures because right when you get through the corona of the sun, that's important because that's where the corona mass ejections are born. it can eject solar flairs like bullets that one day will perhaps hit the earth. in 2012 we just mentioned one and that being one could have wiped out communications on the earth if it had hit in 2012. >> how long is this going to take, do you think? >> the whole mission, six years. it will go around venus several times, whip around the sun several times. so the mugs will last for about six years. >> okay, boys and girls who are watching this. we'll have a test at the end of the program, s

jamie kern lima joins us at the table. welcome. >> thank you so much. >> dwret to have you here. >> yes. >> you were a local tv anchor. >> yes. >> you were in our business. yous suffered from eczema. what led you into this business? >> i thought i would be a journalist it. my whole career. i loved hearing people's stories. i have skin issues. rosacea and sparse brows and i quickly realizeded most makeup looks good with flawless skin but when you need coverage it doesn't. i thought if i was feeling this way i wanted to solve that problem for myself but also for other women out there that couldn't find makeup that. >> what's so great about what you did most of us in our business don't want people to know we have physical flaws. not only did you do that, you supposed it for everybody to see and it's paid off in a very big way for you.
>> our authentic mission is every woman is beautiful and i was going to stand by behind ha. we tack a huge risk. when we went on kwfs -- you guys probably know when you see the beauty industry you see the same aspiration, 15i78 age, same skin tone, flawless skin. i thought that is not real life and i want every woman to know they're beautiful. i went on air took my make-off off and showed my rosacea. i put a model on in her 70s, every skin tone, every skin issue, and i wanted women to know these are products for her. not only the products but really it's more than that. it's really about remembering that every woman is beautiful, that they matter, that she matters. >> i think we all get the bigger picture o that but to charlie's question, it says you started it in your living room. >> yes. >> what does that mean? you and your husband.
>> yeah. it was really a dream. i'm not from the beauty industry but i knew i needed to solve this problem. so, yeah, we started the business in our living room. didn't pay ourselves for the first three years. we assembled an advisory board of plastic surgeons, dermatologists, chemists that really knew skin but made skin care and put coverage intoet that wears totally different in your skin. it's a true entrepreneur story. >> what were you doing in your living room? >> everything, gayle, from learning how to pack boxes. my middle name is ma rye. marie ran customer service. every single john you can imagine. i have to say -- >> you got a lot of nos when you first started. >> me sitting here right now i hope is proo f to every one of your viewers everything is possible and we got so many noes and that's one of my biggest lessons as a beauty en
>> you went to the beauty company. >> i knew it. i believed in it. kwfs said no more times than i could count, more times than i could cry myself to sleep at night. charlie, now we're so blessed to be the number one brand at kwfs and ulta. >> you sold the company to l'oreal. >> yes. >> one of the great big cosmetic companies in the world. >> yes. so what's happening here in the u.s., you know, i feel like women are connecting. you know, get e-mails every day from women, i feel beautiful for the first time. so we intern hi in our own company tried to scale this globally. we launched into see foria in southeast asia and i realized it's hard. i'm hoping l'oreal can help us. >> thank you for coming here. >> you know what it means to be against a hard clock. you sold the company but you're still running it and you're the it girl. >> l'oreal is one of the west companies. they're into science

april 14th. chipotle is warning customers to be on the lookout for credit card fraud. and the "washington post" reports germany is perplexed as president trump escalates its feud with berlin. it was after the g7 nato meetings. merkel said they could no longer rely on others, parentally meaning the united states. president trump said, quote, we have a massive trade deficit with germany. very bad. this will change. merkel tried to ease the dispute by saying transatlantic relations are of paramount importance. lionel is with the "financial times." good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let's begin with the report that president trump plans to withdraw from the paris agreement. what are the implications of that for the united states, for the world, and for europe? >> if president trump indeed is going to pull out of the paris accords,hi
treaty was ratified, it's been backed by the major countries including china and india as well as the europeans, this is a big move. this is america first in caps and it's not going to go down well amongst allies. they'll look at merck and say why are you pulling out when business big companies like exxon is backing the deal. >> will it be seen as abdicating leadership in the world? >> well, it's not just abdicating leadership. it's actually going unilateral and pulling yourself out when other countries, the big polluters, countries, particularly important, china, actually signed up. so why storm out of the tent? we don't get it. >> and india as well, one of the great polluter. idea that climate change is a u.s. threat to national security. >> climate change is still disputed among scientists but unbalanced. given the risk, you might say why take the risk of not
remember, more than 20 years ago george bush refused to sign the kyoto accord. again, that accord did not include china. and skoonld, the senate was massively against more than 95 votes. this is not the case today. this was a big consensus behind paris. >> has this enhanced china's leadership? >> well, if you put it on top of the trans-pacific partnership which again president trump pulled out of, that again seeds ground to china and that's going to worry a lot of people. not just in europe but also in asia. >> i'm struck by your comment about america first in caps. trump officials have said america first does not mean america alone. what is the sense? >> it will be america alone because no one intends to pull out of the paris treaty. there may be even some questions about sanctions. we'll have to see th
up to this deal. i think more important you have to look at the way mr. trump and many people in his administration look at foreign policy. it's a zero-sum game. it's purely transactional. we don't want to do anything trance lateral or anything that barack obama did. the problem with that, if you go purely bilateral, what kind of signal does that send to big players like russia and china if's just a zero-sum world. >> what about the tension eme e emerging between the united states and germany? >> i think hear i would say that president trump does have some important points. germany's current account surplus is way too high. it's got $50 billion, trade surplus for the united states. similarly germany is not committing enough money to the nato alliance. the way it's going about it, i would argue during a general election campaign is
counterproductive. >> you said you think the president, by the way he acted will unite europe. >> i think there's a great many commentators thought that last year when we had brexit and then donald trump's victory that this would be like a populous virus spreading throughout europe and you'd see the beginnings of the end of the european union. actually what's happened, it's not a virus. it's an antidote. europeans actually getting closer on the back of emmanuel macron's front. the more americans seem to be going alone, then you will see grtder european unioncy. we don't want to build europe against america but europe is forcing america to unify. >> all right. thank you, lionel barber. more to come. ing that you very much for joining us this morning. airlines may have
to travel to cuba. in 2016 flights from ten different u.s. carriers were approved to make troopers to the island nation from cities like ft. lauderdale, but when our cbs crews arrived in havana, we found one of the last spirit airlines to take off. spirit is the third to stop service to cuba. kris van cleave is there with why wide expectations have lapsed. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. strict travel is proebted. that i have to meet strict visa requirements even though they have been loosened. it is confusing. last week senators co-sponsored a bill to lift restrictions altogether and that's something the airlines would look a whole lot. when the first u.s. commercial flight in more than 50 years touched down last august, many here expected a u.s. ek. nick 3w5078 to follow and while a number of americans visiting did surge
nearly 300,000, many expected more. how has it been so far? >> amazing. >> fantastic. >> it's been a wonderful experience. >> reporter: bridget kelly from waeshds met her friends from miami. >> it was a quick flight over from miami. i thought there would be more americans. >> reporter: it's a bit of a cuba contradiction. while hotels are so full, prices have soared to $500 a another. vendor after vendor told us what this cab driver did. did you expect to see more americans than you've seen? >> yes, of course. because it's so easy. >> reporter: tonight u.s. will be the third to drop flights to the nation. spirit says there are too many factors that prevent people from traveling easily from the u.s. to cuba and costs of serving havana continue to outweigh the demand. some analysts expect americans visitingan
million by 2025, but a survey finds that only 2% are likely to travel h in the next six months. >> did the gold rush not happen or not as fast as people thought? >> not as fast as people thought. >> collin laverty organizes travel in cuba. u.s. carriers believe americans will see the appeal in time, but american airlines cut service by 25% as it reduced flights to several cities while still opening a ticket office in havana to cater to cubans. jetblue has dropped nearly 300 seats a day. gisele cortez for jetblue. >> i can't speak to the others
>> the tourist industry is lacking cell phones and wi-fi and they can't use their credit cards here. the cruise ships bring all the infrastructure a visitor could need. we should tell you the trump administration is reviewing the travel restrictions. >> it looks like a sunny havana this morning. it looks great. thank you. a childhood sports inspire as novel. "new york times" best-selling author doug brunt is in the toyota green room.
best-selling author doug brunt first garnered attention with his book called "ghost of manhattan." now he's out with his third book called "trophy son." it chronicles anton. he struggles with his identity off the court. doug brunt joins us at the table. hello, doug. >> hello. >> i thought when i finished it, it could, "a," make a great move. it's such an interesting dynamic between anton and his dad who really is a classic tennis dad. like a stage mother, he's a
stage father. tr "trophy son" is aptly named. >> the title was "specialized." i got through it all the way and my editor said, about the title. it really captures the relationship. that's such a common dynamic in professional tennis. that's always a tiger mom or domineering father behind the intense upbringing that these athletes have. >> and parents in general, how dom namts they can be. >> h right. it's an interesting shift in our culture. the novel is patterned after "the great santini." our system is more like a giant great santini with 8-year-old travel sports teams. if you want to have an experience with it you have to lock in at age 8 and commit and
>> you think money and specialization has actually hi ruined sports smo it's problematic. fortunately there's a growing tide against that. steph curry wrote a -- he's a great basketball player that we know who steph curry is. he's in the playoffs. >> this is hard news. >> my kids wear steph curry under armour shoes. >> i like the way he said steph curry is a professional basketball player. >> i forgot. we have a duke graduate at the table. if you don't play only basketball through high school. >> john mcenroe said playing soccer and the footwork required made him a better tennis player? and jordan spieth also. what do you think in terms of this book? you can look at it in the edge of thewa
driven to one sport and parents are crazy with them traveling around on memorial day weekend traveling around sit's hard on the whole fam huh. some kids are intoet. you see that too. that's great. but many perrins are reluctant. i don't want to drive my kids around to nine different soccer games on the weekend. i'd like to go camping and roast some s'mores. >> you don't want to raise tennis champions? what's wrong with you. >> and does mrs. doug brunt, mrs. megyn kelly want that too? >> she's much more about dancing around the camp fire. >> what do you know? >> there have been positive tests and suspensions and there's been a lot of reporting from credible sources about the existence of drugs in the sport and the question is how prevalent and how effve
and it's interesting to look at the testing of other sports where this has been an issue lie cycling and baseball and lance armstrong used to say i'm to most tested athlete on the planet. i've about been tested a thousand times but that's meaningless because he knew how to beat the test. then you flash forward a little bit. he says, yes, i was using it all these years but it wasn't cheating. was leveling the playing field. >> in this particular book you nam the names of real tennis players and you've implied they use performance-enhancing drugses. can you co'do that? if you were writing about tv anchors and you said norah o'donnell is an alcoholic or gayle king or megyn kelly, could you get in trouble for using their names? it's fiction but there is lots of speculation around certain players, and that's basically what this character is doing.
many people out there who believe that a number of players in this sport are kind of in the place where lance armstrong was. to admit that in a novel -- i'm not going to speak for james on any of this stuff. a lot of what he and i talked about -- he was on a flight to paris. he's such a great guy and doing well for the tennis channel. he wrote back it's a page turner of a novel. he said it's a gut check on and off the court. what we talk about was the me can eks of the testing. they meet you courtside with a clipboard and follow you to the bathroom and watch
