7:02 pm
precisely. >> pelley: mark colclough, a danish psychotherapist, was walking with a friend toward the bonne biere cafe. where was he shooting? >> colclough: the french have a habit of having chairs outside the cafe, so you can sit with your back to the window, and just watch the world go by. and people were doing that. and he shot three of them, just like that. the three that were sitting outside, he shot very quickly. >> pelley: so, as he opens fire on the crowd outside the cafe... >> colclough: three people. there wasn't a crowd. he had positioned his leg so he would... he would stand in a kind of tripod kind of way. had the rifle up to his left shoulder. and quite deliberately shot, looked, shot, looked, shot, looked, stopped. >> pelley: what happened to those three people? >> colclough: they fell of their chairs. >> pelley: he hit them all? >> colclough: oh yeah, they were dead. or they fell off their chairs, we could see that.
7:03 pm
that's the first thing i saw. he was shooting that way, down to his right. then he gyrated back and he shot straight ahead into a car that was parked, that was at the crossroads next to the cafe. >> pelley: this is the scene. there's the car. and these are the people who "fell off their chairs." the man recording this video says to himself, "poor people, it can't be true, it can't be true." what happened next? >> colclough: he then stepped forward and then he turned right and walked into the cafe that the three people had been sitting in front of. >> pelley: it didn't appear to you that he had the weapon set on automatic, and he was just sweeping the room? >> colclough: no. it wasn't random. >> pelley: but he was picking out his targets, shooting them one at a time? moving to the next target? >> colclough: he shot the three, then he shot into the car. then he moved into the cafe. looked right, panned right with his weapon, didn't shoot.
7:04 pm
panned left, duck-duck-duck. pause. duck-duck-duck. pause. >> pelley: the shooting stopped. the gunman fled. mark colclough and his friend went to see if they could help. when you went into the cafe what did you see? >> colclough: wounded. some were, i could see one guy had been shot in his thigh. i could see another woman had... already been given an oxygen mask, and was... i could see the paramedics had put themselves on either side of her so i thought she was more critically wounded. and then towards the bar i could see on our left, i could see there were three of four dead bodies lying in front of the bar. civilians. so, i looked down, and i saw big puddles of blood. puddles. not little droplets, but
7:05 pm
puddles. >> pelley: tables turned over? >> colclough: yeah. >> pelley: chairs flipped over? chaos? >> colclough: and the... again, the smell of gunpowder in the room. >> pelley: half a mile away, an american band was playing to a packed house at the bataclan music hall. francois was by the stage. he's asked us to use only his first name. >> francois: there was about 1,500 people inside. so, people were standing and dancing at the ground floor. >> pelley: on the ground floor, there are no seats? it's all open? >> francois: no seats. there is the bar at the back and people dancing at the front. >> pelley: what was the first thing you noticed? >> francois: i so, i heard the- the gunshots, about ten. i look back. and i saw this man shooting a rifle. >> pelley: describe him to me.
7:06 pm
>> francois: he was shooting shot by shot to make sure he was targeting the people. i don't know. every-everything was methodic. very precise and-and he was trained, he was clearly trained. >> pelley: clearly trained? >> francois: yeah. >> pelley: did they have to stop and reload? >> francois: i saw him reloading very, very fast. >> pelley: you think he was experienced? >> francois: yeah. >> pelley: trained like a soldier? >> francois: yeah. >> pelley: francois was hit, a grazing bullet to the back. he fell to the dance floor and played dead. >> pelley: what are you seeing around you? were other people wounded nearby? >> francois: yes. yes. i saw people hurt. the... i saw people laid on the ground not moving.
7:07 pm
several injured. there was... there was blood all over the ground. and-and yeah, it was a nightmare. >> pelley: and when you realized there were multiple gunmen, what did you think? >> francois: i just realized that they were... they were here to kill as many people as possible. so i just thought it was... it was going to be a bloodbath, it was really hell. like, people were just all pushing to the... to the exit. it was it was really packed of people trying to get above each other, trying to ex... trying to escape. >> pelley: he made a break for it through this exit. those are people hanging from the windows above.
7:08 pm
as you're escaping through this door, was it difficult to get through that? >> francois: there was a lot of people on me for about 30 seconds. >> pelley: on top of you? >> francois: yeah, on top of me. >> pelley: crawling over you? >> francois: yeah. it was about two people over me trying to escape. and it was really long to-to get out of the building. >> pelley: neighbors opened their apartments to the wounded. a stranger used a shirt to stop francois's bleeding. later, he overheard the police assault on the terrorists. >> pelley: what happened then? >> francois: then we-we waited about two hours in-in the apartment. the-the police came to us, making sure everybody was okay in the building. >> pelley: can you show me where you were hit?
7:09 pm
so, i was shot here, at the... so, at the... on the back, just below my shoulder. and the bullet came out here. >> pelley: that's where the exit wound is? >> francois: yeah. the exit wound right here, close to the spine. >> pelley: what did the doctors tell you about the course that the bullet took? >> francois: they told me i was extremely lucky. because the bullet didn't touch any muscles or bones. >> pelley: so lucky to be alive? >> francois: yeah. yeah. yeah. >> bauer: unfortunately if it happens here it will replicate somewhere else. >> pelley: they tested the concept here. >> bauer: yeah. >> pelley: alain bauer is a former security advisor to the french government who helped new york city set up its counter terrorism unit after 9/11. >> pelley: is it possible that they could get that to the united states? >> bauer: i think they will try. we are only the second worst
7:10 pm
u.s. are first. >> pelley: six locations were hit in 33 minutes. alain bauer believes that the main target was the soccer match between france and germany, broadcast live across europe. the french president was there. but outside the stadium only one victim was killed. >> bauer: they arrived too late. >> pelley: they arrived too late? after all this planning, they got there late? >> bauer: it happens. >> pelley: bauer says one terrorist failed to get into the stadium with a propane tank rigged to explode in a backpack full of nails and bolts. the bomber blew himself up. >> bauer: the main issue was, clearly, to create a lot of chaos. and it did not happen the way they wanted. so we had a lot of luck. >> pelley: bauer sees paris as a turning point. >> bauer: and it shows how people that are not very well equipped can have such a
7:11 pm
bullet by bullet, people they never see, and prepare to kill themselves to show their case. this is a big change in the level of determination and of violence. >> pelley: too often we think of these things in isolation. but here, in just the last few weeks now, isis blew up the russian jetliner in egypt, it attacked its enemies with a bomb in lebanon, and now, a few days later, this attack in paris. >> pelley: when you connect the dots this is not over for the western democracies. >> bauer: it's just the beginning. isis said it. it's just the beginning. they are... they are right. you need to listen to them, read them, understand they say, the way they say it, and what they want. and they say it all the time. >> pelley: you take them at their word. >> bauer: of course. why not?
7:12 pm

7:16 pm
>> kroft: this past week, before friday's tragedy in paris, scott pelley went to wisconsin for a far-ranging conversation with the new speaker of the house. >> pelley: congress discovered new depths of dysfunction in september when the speaker of the house unexpectedly resigned, his designated successor refused the job, and paul ryan, the only leader republicans could agree on, turned them down. ryan didn't want the thankless job of leading a fractured majority that can't keep its promises. besides, he preferred his house in janesville, wisconsin, to the people's house in washington. but tonight, much to his surprise, ryan is speaker-- at 45the youngest in more than
7:17 pm
140 years, and on his terms. he's an expert on the budget, mitt romney's running mate in 2012. and we met him in his hometown on his second week in the job. have you spoken to the president? >> paul ryan: yeah, a number of times. >> pelley: since you became speaker? >> ryan: uh-huh. >> pelley: and the substance of those conversations has been what? >> ryan: varied on a number of different issues. and much of it discussed about things we can get working together on, things that we have to get done by the end of the year. and just, you know, courtesy issues. we talk about... we talk about having teenage daughters, too. >> pelley: but you found a man you can work with? >> ryan: sure. yeah, look, this is the job. absolutely. >> pelley: well, it hasn't been... >> ryan: he's president of the united states. my president, too. >> pelley: it hasn't... the job hasn't been getting done these last several years... >> ryan: i agree with that. but nevertheless, this government does have to work. >> pelley: on your first day as speaker, you said you were going to wipe the slate clean. >> ryan: uh-huh. >> pelley: and then in your very first news conference, you said the president has "proven himself untrustworthy on immigration." that's not wiping the slate
7:18 pm
in the president's face. >> ryan: well, i think wiping the slate clean was about wiping the slate clean in congress and getting congress, the house functioning again. but on this particular issue, he tried to go around congress and write the law unilaterally. >> pelley: but when people hear this, they think, "here we go again. nothing's going to change." >> ryan: i think you can walk and chew gum at the same time. i think you can oppose the president on some issue that you fundamentally disagree with, but also work with the other party on issues you do agree with. that's what i've been doing. look, if we can find common ground... we can on highways, we will on funding the government, hopefully. we can on tax policy. those are three things that will produce certainty in this economy in the next few months. let's go do that. >> pelley: there was a time on capitol hill when the other guy had a bad idea, and now, on capitol hill, the other guy's a bad guy. >> ryan: yeah, i think that's right. >> pelley: how do you heal that animosity? it's your job now. >> ryan: leadership, by the example, is the way i look at it. somewhere in this, we got into
7:19 pm
impugning people's character and motives if we didn't like their ideas. we've got to get back to just debating ideas. and also, i think we need to sort of... you know, we have two ears and one mouth. we got to use those in that proportion. >> pelley: his mother betty taught him to listen more and speak less. we met her, his wife janna, and cousin adam in a favorite neighborhood restaurant. janna, how did you first hear that paul was being asked to be speaker of the house? >> janna ryan: i am a big thrift store shopper, and i was in my car in front of the salvation army here in janesville when the phone rang. and he said "well, this is coming our way. and you think i should say no, right?" and i said, "oh, yeah, you should say no." and that's how it started. >> pelley: and it's speaker of the house-- i mean, how do you say no? >> janna ryan: for our family, for the rhythm of our life, for what we saw our path, it just seemed like too much.
7:20 pm
him to travel, to be in so many places, to be so much to so many people would leave too little of him for his role as father and husband. >> pelley: mr. speaker, how did you get from "no" to "yes"? you said "hell, no!" >> ryan: yeah. i see myself as more of a policy maker than a political leader. i do politics in order to do policy. i came into it no. then, i realized the situation in our caucus was fairly dire, and that i sort of had an obligation and a duty to step up and do it. and then the question was, can i redesign the job so that i can do it well, so i can be happy and successful? and the fact that we live here in janesville-- we don't live in washington, and our kids are ten, 12 and 13 years old. it's mostly an empty-nester that gets this job, who spends his or her weekends flying around america fundraising. i'm not going to spend my saturdays and sundays flying around america fundraising. i'm going to spend them here, where i need to be.
7:21 pm
and so, once i learned i could redesign the job, then i decided to do it. and now that i'm doing it, i feel it's a great honor. i'm actually excited about it. >> janna ryan: and now it's one of those things that i can't imagine that it wouldn't have happened. i'm not saying that there aren't moments that you think, "wow, how did this happen? you know, how am i on '60 minutes' right now talking about paul being speaker?" but it was... it just... it felt right. >> pelley: mr. speaker, i... >> ryan: i go by "paul," so if it's okay with you... >> pelley: would you prefer that? because people aren't going to call you that. >> ryan: yeah, well, i prefer it if i... they are... ( laughter ) >> pelley: what adversity in your life has made you the person you are today? >> ryan: probably losing my dad when i was 16. >> pelley: what happened? >> ryan: he died of a heart attack. my mom was off with my aunt visiting my sister in denver. i worked the late shift at mcdonald's the night before. and i was going to sleep in, wake up, mow the lawn. and my dad's office called asking where he was. and i went to find him and he was... you know, he had died
7:22 pm
over... in his sleep of a heart attack. >> pelley: what did you learn from it? >> ryan: i learned tragedy. i learned perseverance. and i learned a lot about myself and about my mom and about my family. >> pelley: your father, your grandfather, your great- grandfather all died in their 50s. does that put a fire under you? >> ryan: it does, so i focus on just being healthy. i don't want this to happen to my kids, to janna. and it does. it gave me the other sense that life is short, you better make the most of it. >> pelley: janna, this is an extremely rare opportunity for a reporter. you don't do interviews. i wonder why that is. why not? >> janna ryan: because i've always wanted our family to be a refuge from politics, to be seen... when people to see us as a family, to think of us as janna and paul and charlie, liza, and sam; not as "here comes the speaker of the house" or "here comes that guy who has those votes i don't like," or whatever it would be.
7:23 pm
janesville, a very included, normal-- whatever that means-- regular family. >> pelley: mr. speaker-- or paul, if you insist-- you don't have a home in washington. >> ryan: no, we live here in janesville. >> pelley: where do you sleep? >> ryan: for about a decade, i've been sleeping on a cot in my office. it's very efficient to me. >> pelley: you sleep every night in washington on a cot in your office? >> ryan: yeah, i work a lot. all i do is work there. i get up very early in the morning, i work out. and then i work till about 11:00, 11:30 at night, do the same thing the next day. >> pelley: where do you get cleaned up? >> ryan: in the gym. i work out every morning, and i shower in the gym and i go on with my day. >> pelley: one of the things that you said during this period of time that you were telling the republican caucus that you didn't want the job was that you were concerned that the job would open up your children to ridicule. >> ryan: well, they're coming of age. >> pelley: what does that say about politics in our country? >> ryan: yeah, that's a good point.
7:24 pm
politics has become a blood sport that goes beyond just the person whose name is on the ballot. basically, our kids are getting to the age where they start paying attention, and they're going to see things about their dad that, you know, won't be flattering because i'll take controversial positions on policy issues. and i just wanted to make sure our kids have a normal upbringing, a normal life like we had here in janesville. >> pelley: janesville, southern wisconsin, is getting on pretty well, even though the g.m. plant closed after 90 years. 64,000 people, mostly german and irish. >> ryan: we have 67 cousins is our last count here in janesville, and we all live within about eight blocks of each other. >> pelley: his party's frontrunner for president proposes to deport all illegal immigrants. what's your immigration plan? >> ryan: i think it starts with border enforcement. i think it starts with enforcing the rule of law. but you need to have a vibrant legal immigration system. legal immigration is america. my name's ryan... >> pelley: but some sort of a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants... >> ryan: i don't agree with that. i don't agree with that.
7:25 pm
i think you could have a pathway to legal status. that's been what i have proposed in the past is a pay... a way to make amends with the law-- effectively, go on probation and earn your way to legal status, but not to citizenship. >> pelley: i take it you don't advocate rounding up 11 million illegal immigrants and deporting them. >> pelley: i do not. >> pelley: that's not going to happen while you're speaker of the house. >> ryan: i can't imagine how it could happen, so no. >> pelley: you have proposed having only two tax brackets, 10% and 25%. that still your position? >> ryan: yeah, i've always liked that plan. and our tax code really punishes our small businesses, which is where most of our jobs come from. i mean, look, we're sitting here in wisconsin. overseas-- which, to us, means lake superior, you know-- the canadians are taxing their businesses at 15%. the top tax rate on successful small businesses in america, here in wisconsin, is 44.6%. how can you compete like that? how can you have jobs? how can working families get ahead with a tax system like that? >> pelley: give me three things you would do on tax reform, very specifically.
7:26 pm
>> ryan: well, i'd simplify the code dramatically. i would collapse the rates down to two or three. and i would change the way we tax ourselves internationally, so businesses can take their money and bring it back home so american businesses stay american businesses. and we have to drop our rates on our businesses. i think those three things right there are what i would do. >> pelley: with this new job, what are the stakes of failure? >> ryan: the country stays on the path it is on-- deep poverty, flat wages, working families falling behind, a wreck of national security, oh, followed up by a debt crisis. >> pelley: and what is the elephant in the room? >> ryan: well, i think it's our entitlement programs, it's our budget deficits... >> pelley: social security? >> ryan: it's social security, it's medicare, it's medicaid. and the good news on these issues is that if we reform them for the next generation now, we can guarantee-- guarantee-- that people in or near retirement don't have any changes in their benefits. >> pelley: most people don't realize that two-thirds of the federal budget is social
7:27 pm
security, medicare, medicaid, and the pentagon. the u.s. government is an insurance company with an army. >> ryan: that's right. >> pelley: so, in terms of social security, in your view, we're going to have to raise the retirement age? >> ryan: we haven't as a caucus decided this issue yet. so as speaker of the house, i help manage and bring to a consensus. i'm not dictator of the house. but i have always believed, and i've been public about this for many years, for younger people, when they age, we should change the retirement age to reflect longevity. because that just to make the program finances work. >> pelley: not dictator of the house, but he did start with an ultimatum to about 40 conservatives called the "freedom caucus". if he was going to leave his dream job, chairman of ways and means-- the tax committee-- he demanded their support by the end of the week. they agreed. and ryan promised to open the process to their ideas and amendments. but when it comes to a vote, he expects their support. >> pelley: do you work for the "freedom caucus," or do they
