7:05 am
bombardment of the area of its campaign in syria. a u.s. official confirms to "cbs news" the russian plane was in turkish airspace. it was close, but what was in turkish airspace t. downing of a fighter jet not onlyunder lines that they are fly income crowded skies over syria, russia and turkey are on opposite side. rush backs the assad regime, turkey is also a nato allie t. kremlin has called it a very serious incident. nato is calling for an emergency meeting this afternoon. gayle. >> thank you, charlie d'agata reporting from london. police are on the alert here in the united states. they have been warned a btd the new threat from isis. sources tell "cbs news," the fbi and department of homeland security sent out a joint intelligence bulletin that tells tell about the terror groups newest tactic. a "cbs news" poll have people more fearful of a terrorist attacks.

americans ahead of the busy holiday travel season. officials say terror groups like isis and al qaeda continue to plan attacks, using conventional and non-conventional weapons. they warn of lone wolf attacks, u.s. citizens should remain vigilant. especially when they are traveling overseas in large public places. now, federal law enforcement officials are still saying there is no credible or specific threat against the u.s., but this intel bulletin and the travel alert suggests they are concerned. charlie. >> thank you, jeff, michael morell, a former fbi/cia director. good morning. >> good morning. >> how serious should we take these travel alerts? >> the one overseas, it's obvious we need to take that serious given what's happened in paris and isis' capably in western university. here at home, i do think we need to think seriously about a possible attack over the holidays, for two reasons. isis has thousands of followers here in the united states.
7:08 am
the fbi knows that. they have now been incentivized in paris to do something here. we know those same 350e78 were focused on the fourth of july. so you'd think they were focused on the holiday period. >> if we have an attack like in paris? what would that change? >> i think this is a fundamental question that should be grappled with in the situation room. if we have a paris-style attack, what would our policy then be vis-a-vis isis. the second question, if that would be our policy the day after, why isn't that our policy the day before? that's the fundamental lesson learned from 9/11. >> that's the question we ask when we saw the bombing of the oil delivery in that side of raqqah. >> that's all rules of engagement, right? >> how good they, mike, when you look at it?
7:09 am
sophisticated, organized, a high degree of intelligence? >> it's counterintuitive, but the vast majority of terrorists are not particularly intelligent, they're not particularly sophisticated. they make a lot of mistakes. the mohammed atta's of the world, the ground commander of 9/11 the masterminds are rare. >> the point is they're willing to die. let's talk about the breaking news this morning, this russian jet downed by turkey. how significant is that? >> all right. i think it's significant in the sense that the fundamental problem that we have to solve to go after isis and syria is assad. all right. there's got to be some sort of an agreement among all the players in what happens to him. all right. so that we can focus the syrian army on isis. this complicates that, because right? which is assad gets to stay and turkey is on the other side, assad has to go right now.
7:10 am
>> how are they national security. you can join us on our facebook page. a french judge is questioning a suspect who lent his apartment to the organizer of the terrorist attacks. important evidence may be tied to the main suspect last seen across the border in belgium. reports say he may have failed to carry out a planned attack key suspect in the paris aterrorist attacks. they c . >> reporter: the suicide vest was found in a pile of trash by a street cleaner in the paris suburb without a detonator.
7:11 am

7:13 am
campaign since president obama opposes booting large numbers of boots oak. >> i think president hollande says except that's your position. can you step up the various aspects of that policy? >> reporter: also in play, america's rocky relationship with russia, president hollande will visit moscow later this week. the u.s. has been skeptical of russia's involvement in syria and whether it is fighting to keep president bashar al-assad in power or focusing on isis after the group claimed responsibility for bombing a russian plane leaving egypt last month. hollande is expected to continue his call for the u.s. and russia, to fight together in a single broad coalition. the white house says they will continue the conversation with russia, but at this point they are making no promises. norah. >> all right, chip reid. thank you so much. presidential front runner donald trump will bring back water boarding or go further if necessary. polls show trump leading in

7:18 am

7:34 am
>> are you going to sign up? >> i'm going to i can't wait too go, charlie. if you want to come with me, you are invited. >> i got you, you heard that. i'm there, i'm with you. i'll go. >> charlie wants to go with. jeff, where does your passion come from? you changed the game in the online business, you are in the drone business, where discuss your tackling space come from? >> you know when i was five-years-old, i watched neil armstrong step on the surface of the moon. it just instilled a huge passion in me for engineering, science, exploration. i have been the kind of crazy about rockets since i was a little boy. you don't change your passions. your passions choose you. this is just in me. >> got it. >> on another big question, amazon looking for a big christmas? >> it will be a record holiday, charlie. our fulfillment centers are
7:35 am

7:39 am
of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . the challenges facing the country never stop. so neither does the u.s. army. we train. adapt. and get smarter. every soldier. every unit.

university's 13th. hits name is literally etched in stone on some building on campus. >> that doesn't sit well with some students. >> people come here. they know about his national/international policy during his time as the president of the united states. part of the problem is his more complex history, his dirtier history is shoved under the rug. >> she is a part of the justice league. the student group takes issue with wilson's racist past. as president, he worked to segregate federal agencies and during his term as princeton, not a single black student was admitted. >> we have been here. >> reporter: last week some 200 students walked out of class in protest. about 15 staged a sit-in at the president's office. among the group's demands, that princeton rename its public policy school and residential college, both bear wilson's name and acknowledge wilson's racist legacy.

8:03 am
of doing. he has demonstrated that, you know, he's forceful, that he is decisive, he has shown the ability to deploy forces, expeditionary capabilities and so forth. he has shown that he stands by his guys. of course bashar has been his guy, that's why russia has its only naval base in the mediterranean down at tartus and its only air base in the mediterranean area roughly as well. he has always been one that has opposed the overthrow of governmental leaders, however strong men they may be, for fear that someone might get the same idea about him. >> and he thinks he's destabilizing the same way you said, it might become a vacuum for a whole range of things. >> he can certainly make that case. it diverts attention from ukraine to some degree, although sadly fighting has flared up again there. and, you know, he would love to
8:04 am
his economy is in tatters, they are in substantially in recession. oil price is down 55%, gas prices, by the way, are going to go down next. so he's got a bleak prospect of the future. it's not as strong a hand as it appears, i don't think, and yet he's playing it with, you know, fairly good tactical skill. >> it's interesting. i think that will be the next chess board that's involved here is that putin will want from the u.s. and europe the lifting of these economic sanctions that were imposed after the annexation of crimea and in return moscow will help move assad out of power. >> that's one of the bargains they'll talk about. >> right now we just want to consequences mean. that is a very frightening thought. president obama and french president francois hollande will discuss the isis threat this morning at the white house.

in our "morning rounds" we'll take a look at the controversy that is keeping genetically modified salmon out of some stores. despite fda approval last week, major chains, including target, trader joe's and costco are refusing to carry what some critics are calling frankenfish. our dr. david agus is with us to join us at the table to sort it all out. good to see you, david agus. >> good morning, gayle. >> what concerns you most other than the name frankenfish. that alone is kind of scary. >> what is genetically modified fish? they take a gene from a different salmon and take a gene that turns on other genes from the eel and they put it in the salmon, because salmon is normally grown one season and that makes it grow all the time. so it can go to market and be ready to eat in 16 to 18 months
8:11 am
rather than 30 months. so the problem is we don't know that much about them. >> why the backlash? >> i think the fda is saying, listen, this is safe to eat but you do not have a right to know if it's genetically modified or not. and to everybody, myself included, listen, i want to know what i eat. i have a right to know what's going on here. >> why are they taking the position you don't have a right to know what you're eating? >> great question. i think it is our right to know, and there is data that it may be safe. i think more data is needed. certainly they have not done long-term data in humans at all. at the same time we need to know what's in our food, what our food is made of, and we have the right to make the decision for ourself. the company should have the obligation of proving why it's safe, not the pfda saying no label. >> are you scared of genetically modified food? >> i think it's inevitable.
8:12 am
can't change the fields in nebraska to new york. i think we need to know the outcome of when we eat these things, how it affects us. >> what's the worst case scenario? >> the worst case scenario is these fish get out and start to affect other fish and change the whole ecosystem. these are larger, grow quicker and may outcompete other fish and change the dynamics in our lakes and oceans. >> we've been eating genetically modified corn and soybeans for decades now, right? your issue is transparency, just label it. >> we have a right to know. at the same time, 80% of the corn products out there or soy are genetically modified. and we need to really do studies to understand. they were made so that farmers can do better so it can tolerant drought, not have pesticides. at the same time, how does it affect health? how does it affect our long-term well being? we need to know that. the only way you know that is
8:13 am
>> before you go, you look very sophisticated but could we just take a look at your socks. it just shows, hey, i'm a fun, crazy side. i want everybody to know david agus has a wild, crazy side. >> i'm trying, gayle. one step at a time. >> there's going to be a red sweater in your future. >> that's what i thought this morning, he's a wild and crazy guy. thank you. all 12 living cia directors share the passion and pressure of their job in a revealing new documentary. are there similarities to the spy drama "homeland"? that's next here on "cbs this morning." cbs "morning rounds"
