long-term. the biggest problem is they only last ten years. they don't always last longer than that. >> thanks, doc. i'm arthel neville. >> i'm eric shawn. great advice every sunday on "sunday housecall." thank you for joining us as always. good sunday to you. nice of you to be with us. i'm leland vittert. welcome to "america's news headquarters" from washington. >> i'm elizabeth prann in for shannon bream. there is a new report out today about what the shooter may have told police after his capture. we're live on the scene. >> plus, new efforts to lower the tension between russia and turkey after the nato ally shot down a russian military plane that had crossed into turkish air space. >> a brand-new book about the chairman of the board, frank sinatra is out just in time for
his 100th birthday and, of course, your christmas stocking. we're going to talk to author james caplan. law enforcement sources tell us after his arrest the planned parenthood shooting suspect said, quote, no more baby parts. a possible reference to the recent planned parenthood video controversy. whether the videos are the only thing behind robert dear's alleged rampage or there is something else is yet to be seen. we are learning disturbing new details about his life. will carr is live in colorado springs, with the latest on the investigation. hi, will. >> reporter: as investigators are digging into dear's past, they're painting a picture of a loner, a man who lived off the grid, all weekend searching a trailer that he owned in park county, about 60 miles west of where i am right now in colorado springs. they're looking for clues as to why he came to the planned parenthood behind me, unloaded on friday and ended up in a five-hour gun battle with police
officers. now, for the past year he's been living in that trailer and fairly isolated area, neighbors there say he kept to himself. >> this doesn't seem like a dude that would talk to you unless he was spoken to. like six of us that hang out around here. and we all talk to each other, all hang out and help each other out and they're not part of our clique. >> dear previously lived in a cabin in north carolina. that cabin did not have electricity or running water. he also had past arrests in south carolina for domestic violence and animal cruelty. those who knew him in the carolinas say he never spoke about religion or abortion. while the investigation continues, there have been several vigils for the victims this weekend. we're still waiting to learn the identities of the two civilians who were shot and killed friday, but we have learned that all 15 planned parenthood staffers were not harmed friday. now, right now there is a church service taking place, celebrating the life of officer garrett swasey, a father of two,
an athlete, a man of god, listen to an account of his wife's description. >> she said to me, that he knew, he knew the risks, and he loved what he did. he dedicated himself to being here. he dedicated himself to this profession. and there is no way, there is no way that i think i could have done anything different to make him a better officer. >> we just received a statement from officer swasey's family and in it they said they're thanking the community for their support. they'll always remember the memories of him playing football with his son in their front yard and for snuggling with his daughter on the couch. leland. >> we thank him for his service. will carr, thanks so much. >> elizabeth has more. >> we're learning more about the life of one of the three victims, officer garrett swasey. he's described as a man whose strong faith led him to law enforcement. he was also a co-pastor of an
evangelical church. he was married, at one time a competitive figure skater. his father says he was a great dad to his two children. his colleagues remember him as someone who went out of his way to help others. >> garrett was always that person who was wanting to be the first one there, helping people out, there is no question about garrett's heroism. for a small department, we know everybody, it is not a large department. we're -- you hear about something on the news and you saw him in passing, worked with garrett every single day. his wife is so proud of her husband. yeah. she knew -- she knew what he loved to do. and she knew the risks. and her -- one of her statements to me was he knew . and he would have gone. he would have gone anyway. >> very, very sad. little is known about the other two people who were killed or the nine others who were wounded. in pennsylvania, another police officer was gunned down
in the line of duty this holiday weekend. police say officer lloyd reed was answering a domestic dispute call when he was shot. last night he was pronounced dead at the hospital. reed had been on the saint claire township force for five years and in law enforcement for more than 20. now, a suspect is in custody in the case. state police say they captured this man, ray shelter jr., after a six-hour manhunt. local media reporting that shelter was wounded in the shoulder during that initial gunfire exchange with officer reed. and at this hour, massive manhunt is under way for the most wanted man in europe, if not the world. police are hunting for salah abdeslam who is believed to be the logistics coordinator in the paris attacks. greg pellcott is in paris tracking the investigation. >> yes, shocking new revelations about the terror attacks and
some significant lapses in security. now reported over the weekend that the mastermind of the attacks could have been in europe for two months leading up to the terror, no doubt planning the carnage.remember, authoriti all along he was thousands of miles away in syria. abaaoud was killed in a raid a few days after the attacks in a paris suburb heading off apparently more carnage authorities said he wanted to hit a business center and we're learning he wanted to hit jewish sites, schools, and mass transit. meanwhile, yes, the search for the remaining two principle suspects continues. so-called eighth attacker salah abdeslam and his driver remain very much on the run. and under the radar. it is now reported abdeslam got detonators for the suicide vests used in the attacks from a fireworks store outside of paris. no joke. finally, a french official
declared today that 1,000 people have been turned away from the borders with france in the two weeks since the attacks amid heightened controls there. they were deemed a security risk. some here no doubt are asking where were the controls before? elizabeth? >> greg palkot reporting live, thank you. the body of a russian pilot shot down by turkey five days ago will be returned to russia. russian diplomats met the ambulance carrying the coffin today at an air field near the turkish capital. turkey had taken delivery of the body and religious rights were performed at a local orthodox church. since the downing of the jet, tensions between the two countries are rising. yesterday, russian president vladimir putin hit turkey with economic sanctions. let's bring in fox news military analyst major general bob scales. general, at some level are you a little surprised by how measured
russia's response has been to the shooting down of one of their planes? they haven't bombed anybody. they haven't shot down any turkish planes. mostly everything has been economic. >> well, actually, leland, this is red meat for vladimir putin. remember what his major national strategic objective is, to split nato. and turkey comes along, a member of nato, and shoots down a russian plane. so this immediately gives vladimir putin the velvet hammer to slowly but surely try to peel turkey away from the european coalition. how is he doing it? arresting turks in russia, killing turk insurgents across the border, trying to cut off all flow of goods from turkey to russia and so forth. why is he doing this? he's trying to create as much pressure as he can on the nato alliance. syria is a secondary front, europe is the main front. and whether he manipulates refugees, whether he stresses nato through the ukraine,
through georgia, or through the crimea, his goal has always been the same. this is one other opportunity for mr. putin, very slowly, very deliberately, with great caution and with great intent to continue the rift in nato. >> as he continues to try to drive this spike, we saw what happened in the ukraine, which is the united states largely did nothing to try and stop either the annexation or the russian invasion in the eastern ukraine. are we seeing the same u.s. lack of action for want of a better term? >> well, yeah, that's right. it is almost like mr. putin expects it. it is kind of like, i don't know, the french in 1938 over czechoslovakia, the more a hitler-like person in the name of putin can push and push and push and push, without having to start a major war with nato, the more ground he gains, the more prestige he gains, the greater
his adulation among the russian people. it all works in his favor and so far the united states has done virtually nothing. we have -- we have one armored brigade, a light armored brigade in europe. we have fewer u.s. army soldiers in europe than new york -- than the size of the new york city police department, and putin nows this. he view s this as a wonderful window of opportunity to get what he wants before the next election. >> so what message are we sending as the united states, de facto leader of nato, and provider of most of the military hardware through it, what message are we sending to countries like lithuania and poland on the frontier, if you will, against putin. >> most analysts think the next big putin target are the so-called baltic states, estonia, lithuania and latvia, because there is a little piece of land to the south of these three states that feeds directly to the russian military garrison of kleinengrand on the baltic
sea. the fear is, if the united states does nothing, if the united states refuses to put aircraft or tags or ships in the area, putin will view it as a green light to begin to wail against the ethnic russians in those three countries and just like hitler did in 1938, seek to cut them off from the rest of nato that would be a major crisis in europe. do i believe it will happen? no. nobody knows for sure. but then again, nobody knows what goes on between the ears of vladimir putin. >> there hasn't been much done to stop him so far. so you can forgive him if he thought he could do whatever he wanted right now. general scales, appreciate your time, sir. thank you. >> thank you, leland. protesters were being detained in paris after a march for a climate change deal became violent. this as president obama is en route to france right now where he'll be joining the u.n. climate summit. kevin cork is waiting the president's arrival in paris. is this going to turn into a summit about isis instead of
about climate? >> given what happened here in paris, back on friday the 13th in november, i don't think there is any question that global security and anti-terror initiatives will be at the forefront of many of the conversations here at the u.n. climate summit. though i think it is interesting, you should probably listen very carefully as some leaders actually try to tie the two issues together. with so many world leaders here in paris, the security posture has been absolutely overwhelming. clearly visible from just about every possible vantage point in the city. and as is customary in france, protests will be part of any major welcome of world leaders as we see clashes over policy as you pointed out including general unrest, that's part of the culture here. experts say despite all the terror talk this week, there is no one size fits all approach that will solve this problem. >> biggest problem i see has to do with the generally uncoordinated, unstrategic,
reactive response to terror attacks that essentially every country in the world is taking. there is no leadership on this. there is no single vision on it. >> single vision. very interesting take there, which is why sometimes, elizabeth, the sideline meetings produce even more news, sometimes, than the actual events itself. we'll be listening very carefully. >> absolutely. now, does the president still maintain that climate change is the greatest national security threat? >> well, how shall i put this? just listen carefully to how the language has actually changed. it is fair to say no. he doesn't come right out and say that anymore, but the language is now nuanced. you'll hear things like it is a threat, the risk is immediate, or imminent. here is what the president said about the topic back in may at the coast guard academy. >> climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security. an immediate risk to our national security.
and make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. and so we need to act and we need to act now. >> okay, so what he's essentially saying is if you look at it in total, it can impact the way we conduct war, the way we protect ourselves. that's what i meant when i said there will be world leaders that will try tie the two issues together, how terror is combatted and how changes in the climate can actually impact the way you fight both. so that will be part of the conversation here. it should make for a very interesting turn of events over the next few days. >> kevin cork reporting live, thank you, we look forward to your reports as the week goes on, thank you. >> it may be the thanksgiving holiday weekend, but the 2016 candidates are out in force, including right here on fox news. we'll tell you how carly fiorina pushed back against critics pointing fingers at her today. we'll tell you what she said.
plus, hopefully the eye in the sky lands under your christmas tree. why it could be some new government regulations included with that brand-new drone. and getting under his skin, just in time for the holidays, a new biography is out on one of the most iconic entertainers of our time. ♪ i've got you under my skin ♪ ♪ i built my business with passion.

. while many of us spent the holiday weekend eating and watching football, there is no rest for presidential candidates. we're about two months away from the iowa caw cuss and the contenders are hitting the campaign trail and the sunday morning talk shows. kristen fisher live in washington now, big time endorsements roll in. >> governor chris christie picked up one of most important endorsements of the republican primary season. the new hampshire union leader. the paper's publisher said we don't need another fast talking young senator to try to run the government. the question is will this give him the momentum he needs to break into the realm of the top tier candidate?
a one candidate who is already there but slipping in the polls is ben carson. today he's wrapping up a quick trip to jordan, first and only candidate to actually meet with syrian refugees in their camps and clinic. carson hit the sunday show circuit to say he still believes the refugees should not be brought to the u.s. instead, he thinks the u.s. needs to do more financially and politically to help. >> the syrians want to be in syria. they want to be repatriated in their own country. and they are looking for a mechanism to get there. but in the meantime, the facilities that have been offered to them here in jordan are very satisfactory. >> the other big issue driving the sunday shows with the planned parenthood shooting in colorado, an exact motive is still unclear, plann ened parenthood said hateful language may be partly to blame. carly fiorina fired back. >> what i would say to anyone
who tries to link this terrible tragedy to anyone who opposes abortion or opposes the sale of body parts is this is typical left wing tactics. >> today, trump, carson and mick huckabee condemned the shooting but dismissed any link to anti-abortion rhetoric. as for democrats, they issued strong statements of support for planned parenthood. it took a few days off for thanksgiving, but late toward, clinton will be in boston and tonight all three in new hampshire for the state's annual jefferson jackson dinner. >> kristen fisher reporting live, thank you. let's bring in our political panel for a very fair and balanced debate. david aviellia is the radio host mark levine also joins us. i'm trying to think of all of the topics we have to sort through and limited amount of time. there are a lot. so, david, i want to start with you. we just heard a bit of carly fiorina on fox news sunday condemning the attacks on
planned parenthood facility. and also hit hard on liberal critics saying that, you know, who say anti-abortion rhetoric could have contributed to the shooting. what do republican candidates at this point need to be doing? what is the conversation need to be in reaction to these type of horrific events? >> carly fiorina hit it right on the head, which is you have to state your pro life view s, very important to republican primary voters. we're the party of pro-life voters by and large. and, two, look, what the democrats say is exactly what they're trying to do to score political points. it has no basis with reality. this deranged gentleman who went to colorado and do a horrific thing did so because he's deranged. not because he's pro-life per se. >> what do you think, mark? >> i think it is terrorist. anytime you kill someone for a political cause you're a terrorist. he killed someone because he's pro-life. now, whatever your view s are on abortion, we all have to condemn a terrorist attack. we should call it for what it is.
it is a terrorist attack to attack and kill anyone for political reasons. >> okay. now a lot of topics, i want to move on. we heard in her piece ben carson traveling to jordan to visit the syrian refugees. this was a big move. we haven't seen other candidates do it. and, david, do you think was productive, do you think this will bolster his status on foreign policy, him being familiar with foreign policy. what does it do for his campaign? >> smart tactic on his part. criticized by some for making a few misstatements or missteps on foreign policy. so to go over there, the conversation right now is all about the refugees. we heard some of his comments being spot on, which is syrians ultimately want to be in syria. those who want -- who don't want to do harm to the u.s. and use this as an outlet to get here. he's trying to make sure he stays in the conversation. >> some of them want to be in the u.s.? >> well, of course they want to be in the u.s. right now one-third of syrians are refugees. there has been 300,000 dead and the conflict continues.
i think ben carson is criticized not just by some, but by some on his own team by not knowing anything about the middle east. it is a smart thing. i hope it gives him compassion to see how much incredible suffering they have undergone. >> do you think other candidates are going to follow suit? do you think we'll be seeing more candidates go overseas now? >> this election is not going to be decided by how many people go overseas. this election is going to be about who has the right answers for solving these problems and going to syria, was a smart move, but it doesn't mean ben carson is going to get the nomina to syria. >> it is smart because he's so weak. ben carson is fade and will fade fast. >> do you think he'll continue to fade? >> to be determined. we're two weeks -- two months away from votes starting to get counted and pregame is fun, but until votes actually start getting counted, we're not going know who the nominee is going to be. >> we don't have much time left. i have one more person i want to talk about, this may surprise you, donald trump, on nbc. he doubled down on nbc when he said that he does recall seeing
on tv new jersey residents celebrating after 9/11. there is nothing that is holding him back. >> nothing on tv that shows that. there were a few people that celebrated, there were no americans celebrating that anyone has on video camera, so they would have found it by now. this is donald trump's way. he doubled down on what he thinks people want him to say, wants it to be true. i have a feeling he's going to fade as well. remember establishment supports marco rubio. they usually get their way. so trump and carson will make a big deal now. come january and february, they'll be gone. >> we don't have super delegates in the republican primary. >> sure you do. >> we don't. the democrats have super delegates. not republicans. >> you can call them whatever you want, but more than -- >> the people that cast the votes are the voters in their states who send their delegates. we don't do super delegates. democrats do that to protect hillary clinton -- not ben
carson, to keep bernie sanders from taking the nomination away from her as they needed to do a couple of years ago or tried to do with super delegates to make sure barack obama didn't beat her. but he actually did. >> unelected people aren't chosen by primary -- >> they don't get votes, mark. unelected people at the convention don't get to decide who the nominee is. it is laughable for you to say that. but as far as mr. trump, look, donald trump is donald trump. he's going to do more interviews than anybody else in this election cycle. and it doesn't matter what he says. he has a core group of varietiers who arenvariety supporters who aren't going to leave him. can can he expand that as marco rubio and as ted cruz continue to see upward mobility, and what they're doing, can he expand his base to make sure he gets more votes than they do and he has enough actual delegates to cast votes for him at the convention. >> i think the establishment will get their way. it will be rubio.
>> thank you very much. we'll appreciate it. we'll continue this on another saturday or sunday. be sure to tune in to fox news sunday after our show. you can hear the exclusive interview with carly fiorina, watch it here at 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. eastern. why a government agency says the hot toy this christmas season isn't a toy at all and what it means for you if you find one under your christmas tree. and migrant crisis closer to home, what one country is doing to try to stop migrants from using its country as a weigh station for the u.s. plus, an early winter storm ices over roads and pulls down pure lines and it is coming at one of the worst possible times, the busiest travel day of the year. janice dean is tracking it all. hi, elizabeth. we're watching the airports, the big airports are doing okay. it is across the central u.s. where we have icy conditions again. we will talk about this slow
moving storm and what is behind it coming up on "america's news headquarters" after the break. i accept i'm not the rower i used to be.. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't accept is getting out there with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i will. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that really mattered to me. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't have to set records. but i'm still going for my personal best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. ardo you have there? coverage you need? open enrollment ends december 7th. don't put it off 'til later. now's the time to get on a path that could be right for you... with unitedhealthcare medicare solutions. call today to learn about the kinds of coverage we offer, including aarp medicarecomplete plans insured through unitedhealthcare.

in oklahoma, power lines down and left 80,000 people without power this holiday weekend. the ice is closing roads across the state, stranding drivers and it is wreaking havoc for travelers. at least 14 deaths in texas and kansas are being blamed on the storm. meteorologist janice dean is tracking it all. hi, janice. >> hi, elizabeth. yet another day of tricky weather across the central u.s., stretching from texas through the ohio valley and the tennessee river valley, slow moving system, a frontal boundary that is draped across the mid-atlantic toward the southern plains. and along it, mainly rain, we're getting that mixture of freezing rain, sleet and freezing snow.
the next batch of wintry weather moves in. here is the future radar along the boundary. we're seeing heavy rainfall, in some cases several inches of rain could cause some flash flooding. overnight tonight, and the pink, that's the freezing rain under sleet. and behind it, several inches of snow as this next system winds up and brings the midwest wintry mess as we head into monday, tuesday and wednesday. so we are getting into those tricky weather months in terms of wintry travel. so there is your forecast as we head into wednesday. several inches of snow, maybe 6 to 10 across the midwest. and heavy amounts of rain, 2 to 3, 4 inches across portions of the tennessee river valley, ohio river valley, and because we have the boundary that is not really moving much ahead of it. warmer temperatures. behind it, cooler temperatures, especially up towards the northern plains. and along the front, that's where we have got the risk of the freezing rain and/or sleet.
the travel today along both coasts, west coast, east coast, looks good. it is the gulf coast across portions of the southern and central plains that we're concerned about. so just be careful, don't be out there unless you have to on those roadways where it is very icy. back to you. >> a lot of people wishing they were in florida now. janice dean, thank you so much. >> you got it. come christmas morning, there will be about a million new drones flying around america's living rooms, parks and neighborhoods. unmanned aerial vehicles that the faa calls them are a popular gift. recent incidents involving recreational drones get close to commercial airliners and crashing into sports stadiums has many asking if drone technology has outpaced the regulation about them. aviation attorney mark dumbrough joins me now.
>> i think if it happens, it is probably going to happen at a lower altitude given the number of reported encounters between drones and aircraft in the vicinity of airports. so i think so long as we continue to see the stupid behavior on the part of individuals given the number of reports which i think is somewhere in the order of 600 to 700, i think the answer is yes, unfortunately. >> we don't know what is going to happen. it could destroy an engine of a 737, something like that. >> there has been no testing. i think a lot of people are doing analysis based upon bird testing that the faa did, but the birds obviously don't have -- they don't have batteries like this that are metal. don't have metal motors. don't have the type of solid nature that these drones have. so i think there are questions. >> essentially i can go buy this drone on amazon and pull it out of the box and if i wasn't living in the washington, d.c. area, i could start flying it by
myself, no training, no nothing, no registration. >> i think that these devices, these drones are so stable that you pull them out of the box, make sure the battery is charged, you download the app on to your smartphone, you press takeoff, and they take off -- >> is that a problem at some level? >> well, i think it is. i think the faa sees it as -- >> why haven't they done anything yet? >> they have. they have been criticized as moving too slowly. fact is these are airplanes, considered to be airplanes, they operate in the navigable air space system. there are regulations in the work and there are restrictions on the ability to fly them. >> restrictions. people are crashing them into sports stadiums, no registry, so crashes, you have no idea who is flying it, or who might belong to it. >> that's a very significant problem. on november 20th, 21st, there were recommendations delivered to the faa regarding the registration of drones.
and that's in anticipation of what you referenced, the fact there are going to be a million of them out there by the time the season is over. the key is identifying those that crash into sports stadiums or injure people. >> or flying it too close to an airport or anything like that. >> correct. absolutely right. the faa accepted the recommendations but we don't know in terms of accepting they haven't said that's what they're going to do, but they have indicated that they intend to have registration, regulations, requirements out for all drones including the ones you have under your christmas tree on christmas morning, hopefully before christmas. >> so it is very possible that if i end up with that under my christmas tree, mom, that i'm going to have to register with the faa. >> absolutely. you'll have to register with the faa. the issue becomes the mechanics of how it gets done. but, yes, and it is not only this one, it is anything from actually the recommendations and there is a lot of questions as to whether the faa will accept
it from anything from a half a pound -- >> even the tiny little -- big picture, though, is the faa behind the eight ball on this. do they let this become too big of a problem? has it gotten out of control to regulate it and make it safe again? >> that's a good point. this is technology which has been around on the defense side for over 20 years in terms of drones. and industry in this country, whether it is power line inspection, pipeline inspection, railroad inspection, has really been clamoring for its use. there has been no regulatory structure at all. and in 2012, the faa was mandated to integrate these into the national air space system by september of 2015. now, they're not going to do that. but the fact is they are behind the power curve. >> we have to see why they catch up or if they swing the pendulum the other way. >> i think they'll catch up. >> appreciate it. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> liz, what's coming up? >> they should give us the vita
visas. we haven't gone to the toilet. we have won the visas. they should give us the visas. >> the migrant crisis is going on in europe. there is another one brewing closer to home. a number of cubans are protesting a new visa rule by ecuador. starting tuesday, cubens will need a visa to travel there. hundreds of protesters gathered outside the embassy in havana, some with already purchased plane tickets and little time to get a visa. ecuador said it changed its no visa policy because a surge of cuban migrants using the country as a transit point to reach the u.s. border where they can get in legally. a first for a pontiff. in recent history. on the last leg of his trip, pope francis takes his message of peace to a war zone. check out this royally cute picture. 6-month-old princess charlotte with her favorite stuffed animal

focus ed and targeted approach. molly heninburg is here in washington with more. >> this is the bulk phone data program run by the nsa, the national security agency, that was leaked by edward snowden, a former nsa contractor about two years ago. snowden revealed the government was collecting information on americans' phone calls. data on what numbers you were being called in, calling out, duration of phone calls, to try to ferret out any terrorist connections. president obama called for the nsa to shut down the program. congress agreed so it ended yesterday. starting today, the law requires the nsa get a court order and go to the phone companies to get those types of details. the office of the director of national and intelligence put out a statement saying the nsa will have to go to the phone cans with a specific selection term, a term that specifically identifies a person, account, address or personal device in a way that limits the scope of
information sought to the greatest extent reasonably practicalal. this ensures collection of information for intelligence purposes is focus ed and targeted. some republicans already are voicing concerns that the u.s. needs bulk phone data collection to prevent terror attack and the new procedures may mean that it takes weeks to get critical information back from the phone company. >> the united states made a real mistake when they eliminated this program where we could search foreign known terrorist telephone numbers to see if they talked to anybody in the united states. i think that makes sense to the american people. but congress took that away from the nsa and unfortunately it is not going to be a timely tool to use in the future. >> senator burr says americans expect the government and the intelligence community to know who the terrorists are and where operatives may be in the united
states. and this change he believes makes that more difficult. elizabeth? >> big change. thank you so much. from his love affairs to his bouts with rage to his genius with a song. we're, of course, talking about the one and only frank sinatra. a new biography is out and we'll talk to the author coming up. moderate to severe crohn's disease is tough, but i've managed. except that managing my symptoms was all i was doing. and when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease.

sports freaks. x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. the sultan of swoon, frank sinatra, would have reached a milestone on december 12th. his 100th birthday. just in time for that and the holidays a new biography is out charting his ascent from a hoboken kid to a culture icon. shannon bream sat down with james kaplan, author of "sinatra: the chairman." >> the second book is really about sinatra's rise to power. it's the first book was a story of the rise of a romantic young troubadour, if you will. the second book is about power and how sinatra acquired it. >> if he has a career that is so unusual compared to what we see in this day and age. i mean there's really nothing like him.
to stick around for decades and to remain so successful through the longevity of that career. what was it about him in your opinion that made that possible, especially you mentioned having that big comeback after having a lull? >> well, sinatra really saw his movie career as the engine of his fame. what sinatra was all about, and what kept him lasting and what i think will keep him enduring decade after decade and century after century, is that voice. it is a voice unlike any other. i think, i believe very strongly, that frank sinatra was the greatest interpretive musician of all time. and the records he made had enormous power when they were released, continue to have enormous power today. and then you add the mystique of the guy, the rat pack, that bravado, that seemingly effortless style, that powerful charisma, you have a star unlike
any other. >> and he was human, like the rest of us, he was a flawed guy. there are things if you're reading or researching into his life that obviously are not pleasant and not positive. but why do you feel it's important to cover all of those aspects of who he was, and make that part of this latter account of his life? >> well, i am writing in these two volumes what i'm trying to make the definitive biography of sinatra. this is the biography of a human being, as you say, and all of his contours and complexities. this was a musician, singer of level skills. he was a complicated guy with a lot of demons, terrible insecurities, about his size, about his italian-american-ness, about his oversensitivity. he was a difficult and complicated character, a lot of the time. the only time he was really happy was when he was singing well. and he was such a perfectionist
that it was hard to find times when he sang as well as he wanted to be. a lot of the rest of the time, he -- he was a drinking man, and drinking often fuelled his bad moods and he would get in to -- he would get in to trouble sometimes. i felt it was important to cover every aspect of his life, the good parts, and the bad parts, to give a fully dimensional view of his great, great genius. >> and it's interesting, and surprising, to see the immense success that he had, but to hear how you talk about his insecurities, and the things that really gnawed at him when the world saw him as such a successful man. many good lessons there for all of us, a fascinating read, as we come up to what would have been his 100th birthday. dave kaplan, we wish you much success with the book. >> shannon, thank you so much. wonderful talking with you. >> and if you're looking for something else to put under the tree, gifts from christmas past,
