2:58 am
? there's no sense in trying ? >> reporter: if song lyrics are poetry, then bob dylan is its patron saint. ? hey mr. tambourine man ? the prolific songwriter has produced more than 650 songs in his storied career, setting the phone for generations of performers. shawn willentz is the author of "bob dylan in america." >> i don't think you have eminem without bob dylan. ? johnny's in the basement mixing up the medicine ? >> reporter: dylan now says he plans to accept the person. >> do you think of yourself primarily as a singer or as a poet? >> i think of myself more as a song and dance man, you know. >> reporter: never a stranger to controversy, dylan has carefully managed his image over the decades. often appearing reclusive. >> he wants to live that life the way he wants to live it. he doesn't need anybody else to tell him how to do that. i don't see that as reclusiveness. i see it as mastering fame. ? i'm sick of love ? >> reporter: yet even at 75

100 shows each year as part of his neverending tour. in a rare interview in 2004 he told "60 minutes" correspondent ed bradley why. >> it goes back to the destiny thing. i made a bargain with it, you know, a long time ago and i'm holding up my end. >> what was your bargain? >> to get where i am now. >> he told ed bradley that he knew that destiny was looking right at him. >> he says that in his book, destiny was looking right ? young ? >> reporter: vladimir duthier, new york. ? forever young ? ? may you stay ? and that's the overnight news for this friday. for some of you the news continues and for others we hope you'll check back with us a little later for the morning news and of course "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center here in new york city, i'm michelle
3:00 am
? a warning from the surgeon general. substance abuse will strike 1 in 7 americans. he wants a revolution in how we treat it. also tonight, the trump transition. the big names floated for big jobs. but is the president his son-in-law? >> jared is a very successful real estate person, but i actually think he likes politics more than he likes real estate. and tales of two species. climate change could wipe out africa's gorillas. >> they're not in control of events. they're the potential victims of them. >> while america's buffalo make a thunderous comeback. >> it's an adrenaline-kicking son of a gun.
3:01 am
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." good evening. scott is off. i'm john dickerson. this is our overnight edition. america has an addiction problem. and in the first report of its kind surgeon general vivek murthy called for a major shift in the way we treat this. his report says nearly 21 million suffer from substance abuse. it affects more americans than cancer. yet 90% are not getting treatment. the economic impact is more than cbs news medical correspondent dr. tara narula joins us now. tara, do we really know how to define addiction? >> the report does a great job of telling us this is a spectrum that ranges from substance misuse all the way to the more severe form of the disorder, addiction. it's a call to action for a public health crisis that affects individuals, families, society. the number of americans affected by substance use disorders is as many americans as affected by diabetes, more than 1 1/2 times
3:02 am
cancer, and yet would we accept a treatment rate of 10% for those diseases? probably not. the hope is that this will catalyze change as did the surgeon general report in the 1960s when it came to tobacco. >> so tara, where do we go from here if this is to be treated as a disease? >> one of the best things this report did is tell us that we need to change our attitude about substance misuse and addiction. we need to have understanding and compassion that this is not a moral failure, this is not a character flaw, not something to be ashamed of. this is something that is a chronic disease of the brain and we need to treat it like a chronic condition. the faces of this disease, our family members, our colleagues, these people need to feel comfortable coming forward and telling us that they need help. and we need to approach this with a public health approach like we would treat any other chronic condition, which means mobilizing doctors, policy makers, educators, parents to really have a multifaceted attack. and the idea is that hopefully with that we understand the science, we know that prevention and treatment work, that recovery is possible, that we can really do this as long as we
3:03 am
thanks, tara. one photo that's seared into our memories showed two family members in ohio overdosed in their car with a 4-year-old in the back seat. don dahler has more on this epidemic of opioid abuse. >> hey, girl, what's up? >> reporter: 20-year-old nick ryan's heroin high was captured on his mother's cell phone. she videotaped nick and his father, tim ryan, during a drug binge hoping when she showed it to them later it would shock them into getting help. his father is now in recovery, but nick died from an overdose two years ago. tim can never forgive himself. >> all that lady wanted was a good husband, some kids, and i took all that away. and then i set the path for my son. >> reporter: the chicago area saw more than 600 opioid-related
3:04 am
overdose calls. at stroger hospital they see an average of 14 cases a day. e.r. doctor steven aks. >> for me when i learned that overdose deaths exceeded car accident deaths, i mean, to me that was shocking. >> reporter: this epidemic knows no state boundaries, no age limits. it is color blind, and attracts men and women with equality. >> mama! >> reporter: this is a 2-year-old in lawrence, massachusetts trying to revive aisle of a store. anti-overdose drugs like narcan have become a lifeline. in 2011, 4,600 prescriptions were given out. so far this year more than 87,000. and with heroin being laced with powerful painkillers, it often takes multiple doses to save lives. >> i think that the average viewer may not understand that it's completely out of the control of the individual once they're in it, and that they
3:05 am
see three times the national average of overdose victims. but john, some communities are beginning to focus on treatment. just last year illinois passed a law that requires medicaid and private insurers to cover substance abuse like they cover other medical conditions. >> don dahler. thank you, don. now to the transition. top officials in the obama administration are beginning to make way for the trump team. today we learned the director of national intelligence, james clapper, submitted his resignation effective at the end of mr. obama's term. as for the incoming administration, it is becoming clear that president-elect trump intends to lean heavily on his son-in-law, jared kushner. but can he give kushner a white house job? anna werner takes a look. >> reporter: is it nepotism, favoring his relatives, if the
3:06 am
administration? a federal law banning such appointments suggests it is, but house speaker paul ryan said today he doesn't know. >> he's obviously a brilliant young man who donald trump trusts. so i'll leave it up to the trump transition team as to decide what role he plays. >> reporter: there are also concerns kushner might be given access to the highly classified presidential daily briefings. in a letter yesterday to vice president-elect mike pence house democrat elijah cummings said, "if these reports are true, mr. p' astonishingly cavalier attitude toward our nation's most sensitive secrets. >> jared is a very successful real estate person but i actually think he likes politics more than he likes real estate. i'm excited. >> reporter: much of the country knows little about the 35-year-old harvard graduate other than that he's married to ivanka trump, seen with her here in an instagram video. >> i always tell ivanka don't worry about the things you can't
3:07 am
winning campaign. "esquire" contributor vicky ward has covered kushner for over a decade. >> he really believed that his father-in-law had a message that resonated with middle america, and he also realized that all his social and professional friends didn't get it. >> reporter: and ward says a steadying influence on his father-in-law. >> he knows not to always take him literally. he knows how to handle him. i think that gives him great power. because it means that he can get through to his father-in-law when perhaps a lot of other people cannot. >> reporter: kushner was thrust into the spotlight at age 24 when his father, charles, was convicted some years back of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering. john, the prosecutor was a young chris christie, who was ousted recently as trump's transition head. >> anna werner outside of trump tower for us tonight.

trump tower, including south carolina governor nikki haley, who is rumored to be in the running for secretary of state despite once calling mr. trump an embarrassment. in fact, campaign sources have begun floating a number of former detractors for top roles including texas senator ted cruz and even former gop nominee mitt romney. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. was more than reciprocated. >> because i don't like romney. i don't like him. he thinks he's hot stuff. i hate people that think they're hot stuff and they're nothing. okay? nothing. >> reporter: cbs news has learned the two will sit down on saturday. trump loyalist and alabama senator jeff sessions. >> well, i think it's good that the president-elect is meeting
3:12 am
he's meeting with a lot of talented people. >> reporter: and it would be tough to fill the top ranks of government without tapping at least some former critics. one trump ally took himself out of the running for a cabinet position today, scott. newt gingrich said he wants to be free to plan strategically at all levels of government. >> nancy cordes. thanks so much, nancy. tonight a new and sinister picture is emerging in the shooting deaths of three american soldiers this month in jordan. an important u.s. ally in the middle east. david martin is following this. >> reporter: as army sergeant james moriarty's body came home, u.s. officials said a video of the incident in which he and two other american soldiers were killed appears to show a deliberate terrorist attack, not as was first believed a tragic accident. the three soldiers were all green berets working for the cia in jordan, training syrian rebels. u.s. officials say security camera video shows several
3:13 am
broad daylight at the entrance to the jordanian airfield where the green berets were based. the first was allowed to pass through the gate, but then a guard suddenly opened fire on the second vehicle, killing both americans inside. the americans in the third and fourth vehicles jumped out and started returning fire. the jordanian guard shot and killed one of them before he was wounded by the other. jordanian officials originally blamed the americans for failing to stop at gate. but the u.s. embassy in jordan said in a statement, "there is absolutely no credible evidence ey the fbi is leading the investigation, but so far has been unable to question the shooter because he is in a medically induced coma. john? >> david martin at the pentagon. thank you, david. in morocco today nearly 200 countries reaffirmed their support for the global climate agreement reached in paris last year. many are worried president-elect trump will pull out of the deal. further south in africa climate change is taking a toll on

diaries." >> reporter: there's a population up there on the slopes of these volcanic peaks in central africa that knows nothing of arguments in washington about climate change. but the famous gorillas in the mist do know something is going on. they know the bamboo chutes that make up a major part of their diet and which used to sprout like clockwork are now less predictable. the rains that produced them were a month late this year. the gorillas have had to adapt their roaming and foraging patterns because the old seasonal rhythms of food production have altered. their world is changing. these guys are the 800-pound gorillas in the room except of course they really weigh in at about 400 pounds and they're not in control of event, they're the potential victims of them.
3:15 am
the gorilla's problems are made worse by the troubles of their distant cousins and close neighbors, people. because the late rains have also made the water supply down in the valleys less reliable, local villagers have been going up into gorilla country where they're not supposed to go to bring that good mountain water home. and park ranger abel musana says water isn't the only thing people are after. >> when there is that kind of change and -- gh >> reporter: drought? >> drought, yes. the harvest will be impacted and people are coming to invade the habitat which is for gorillas. >> when people are low on food they come into the park looking for food. >> yes. >> reporter: the human population has ballooned in the areas surrounding the park and when these people are forced up the mountains, david grier of the world wildlife fund's great apes program says they bring disease and other dangers with

>> they have to enter the park to get access to this clean water. in the mean time they might want to set a snare for catching an ungulate for food. >> an antelope or something. >> right. >> but some poor ape steps in it. >> exactly. >> reporter: that's what happened to this gorilla filmed by a "60 minutes" team a few months ago. the snare was renofd by one of the vets whose work has helped the ape population increase lately. still there are only about 80 mountain gorillas left in the world all here, confined to these mountain tops. they're already considered critically endangered. and as their world changes, they have nowhere to go. mark phillips, cbs news in volcano national park, rwanda. coming up next, how facebook and twitter are changing after the election. and later, there's no slowing down this old cowboy at roundup
