ing him as an obstacle court. you can see it on the internet. >> cool. captions by: caption colorado . good morning to our viewers in the west. it is monday, may 6th, 2013. welcome to "cbs this morning." israel bombs targets inside syria. what is the next move for the united states. jfk's daughter caroline opens up like never before about her father's assassination more than 50 years ago. and the new fortune 500. we'll reveal the big names that made the list. but we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. israel's sending a signal to iran, to hezbollah, but possibly to us too. >> tensions rise. >> the latest strikes, what's believed to be missiles.
7:01 am
>> syria says the air strikes are called an act of war. >> the attacks as the united states is deciding how to respond to chemical weapons used during the civil war. >> the redline that the president wrote was apparently written in disappearing ink. >> blake hicks is expected to tell a house committee that he thought it was an attack from the get-go. >> the cia knew it was a terrorist attack. gregory hicks knew it was a terrorist attack. the ambassador before he died said we're under attack. celebration comes to a horrifying end as a limo catches on fire and five die including bride. tamerlan tsarnaev's body remains at the funeral home because no funeral home wants to take it. >> the congressional honor

7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. >> good morning to you, charlie. >> we begin with syria. the syrian government says two air strikes by israel amount to a declaration of war. >> the attack killed 42 soldiers and israel fortifying its defenses this morning. allen pizzey is in tel aviv. >> reporter: >> reporter: no one doubts they did and the condemnation so far has been more ritual than emphatic perhaps because of the target. the massive explosions that rocked the syrian capital destroyed missiles headed for arch enemy hezbollah according to israel officials. they made fatah 110 missiles
7:04 am
that have pinpoint accuracy. the syrian government called the attacks a flagrant violation of international law. characterizes the strikes as proof of them fighting to overthrow the regime of bashar al assad. the attacks have concerned them. israel has deployed several of its iron dome defense batteries to the north. in what commentators here are calling a clear sign that israel does not expect serious retaliation, however, prime minister benjamin netanyahu left on a scheduled trip to china. israelis are banking on the assad regime not viewing the attacks as intervention. >> i hope the world is understanding that the target
7:05 am
is, in fact -- anti-target. >> that's how president obama saw it. >> what i have said in the past and i continue to believe is that the israelis justifiably have to guard against the transfer of advanced weaponry to terrorist organizations like hezbollah. >> reporter: reports here suggest that sealing assad's fate is not their aim. whether or not he believes it is another matter. there's little the syrians can do about it either way. >> thanks. joining us now from washington former general richard myers. he's a senior cbs military security analyst. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. good morning, norah. >> let me start with this. what is the risk of wider war here?
7:06 am
>> i think that's clearly probably hezbollah's call. i don't think you're going to see iran do anything outside its country other than through hezbollah, so i think it depends on what hezbollah, what steps it takes here toward either israel or perhaps wider. hezbollah is the iowa team of the terrorist organizations making al qaeda look like a pickup team. >> so if hezbollah does something, what then? >> well, i think -- you know, i think if they attack the northern border region of israel, israel could probably handle that on their own. we've always, of course, pledged our support to israel. support against rocket attacks in the north or perhaps if they have any of these missiles, attacks inside israel would cause real concern for us as well. >> general, it appears these attacks were aimed at hezbollah, in and around damascus.
7:07 am
what about the administration. how much of u.s. intelligence would have been provided to the israelis to carry out this attack? >> you know, we do share intelligence. my guess is that in this case israel knows what's going on in their neighborhood probably as well as anybody, so it's hard to know exactly what the united states might have provided. but these missiles are not just a threat to israel. when you get a terrorist organization like hezbollah with this kind of weaponry, i think it's cause for concern for lots of people. not just that region, but europe, united states, other places. >> general, i've heard repeatedly with senior officials that i've spoken with is one of the reasons they don't want to start an air war with syria themselves is because they're concerned about the advance systems provided by russia.
7:08 am
the fact that is israel was able to do that, does that raise doubts about just how powerful those air defenses are? >> i don't think we should discount them. russia has provided syria the latest in air defense weaponry, and my understanding is that these attacks were done from a long standoff range where the aircraft did not have to come into close range to those air defenses. so i'm not sure it tells us anything. i think any air war over syria given their air defenses would be very difficult actually. >> general myers, thank you so much. >> thank you, all. nearly eight months after the september 11th attack on the united states in libya, a diplomat is raising new questions about a possible coverup. >> he said the state department knew immediately it was a terror attack. margaret brennan is with us this morning. margaret, good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah. this testimony came from greg hicks. in an interview with the house oversight committee he directly contradicts administration
7:09 am
claims that the attack was first thought to be nothing more than a demonstration gone awry. a portion of his account was seen for the first time on "face the nation" on sunday. greg hicks says on the night of september 11th chris stevens send him this cable message. greg, we are under attack. they said it was clear what was happening. i thought it was a terrorist attack from the get-go. everybody in the mission thought it was a terrorist attack from the beginning. yet five days later u.n. ambassador susan rice did not link the attack to terrorism. she said it sprang up because of a protest from cairo inspired by a video. >> what it is is in fact what began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> reporter: those remarks made weeks before contradicts those mentioned in libya.
7:10 am
>> this is no doubt this is preplanned, predetermined. >> reporter: hicks said that the public contradiction was a personal insult to the libyan president because ambassador rice, quote, basically said that the president of libya is either a liar or doesn't know what he's talking about. my jaw hit the floor as i watched this. he believes that's why the libyan government refused to allow the fbi access to the crime scene for several weeks. republican congressman darrell issa. >> more weeks went by with no fbi on the ground. >> so hicks will testify on wednesday in front of issa's committee. the state department told us they've encouraged their pleas to tell the truth, but they'd did not respond to his specific allegations. she said she relied on the
7:11 am
assessment of the attack and not personal opinion. >> margaret brennan, thank you. with the debate over gun control raging, one man has come up with a gun manufactured on a 3-d printer. it's called the liberator. it's made up of 16 parts. 15 were printed. that's right. the 16th part is a firing pin and that coming from a simple nail. it was documented by forbes and he said his product is not about violence but freedom. james porter told this weekend's nra convention that president obama can by stopped. >> now some lawmakers are trying to revive the failed bill. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: charlie and norah, good morning to you.
7:12 am
they're trying to figure out if there's a way to engineer a do-over and convince senators to change their mind. that's not going to be easy. they're facing essentially the same obstacles they did the first time around. at the national rifle association's annual meeting this weekend, the group's ceo wayne lapierre accused them by enlisting them in the fight for gun control legislation. >> rather than implement solutions that could prevent senseless violence, they choose broken policies that enable tragedy. tragedy they wait to exploit by choice for political gain. >> reporter: former vice president sarah palin accused the president of using the family in, quote, backdrops of government speeches. >> we're fighting a fight for the fight, this is a fight for freedom.
7:13 am
>> reporter: they're trying to revive that which was failed in the senate last month. they held rallies, aired tv ads. president obama called on graduates at ohio state university to join the effort. >> to protect our kids there gun violence, it requireses untiring resolve of citizens. it will require you. >> reporter: in an op-ed, joe biden said in the end i believe we will prevail. and those who wrote off gun safety legislation last month will come to realize that moment wasn't the end at all. it was the turning point. still democratic senator dick durbin acknowledged the numbers don't currently add up. >> we need to pick up five more votes and that's quite a task but we can do this.
7:14 am
>> and there's fresh evidence that this debate has been great for gun sales, the nation's largest publicly traded gun seller posted a 40% net increase in sales the first quarter of this last compared to first quarter of last year. >> thank you. tomorrow we'll speak with joe manchin. he did so despite an iowa rating from the nra which opposed the bill. >> and now to the boston marathon bombing. outrage is growing. we're learning new details this morning about what investigators found on his laptop. some call it a training manual for terrorists. meanwhile one of three men charged with trying to help tamerlan's brother is due in court. don dahler is there this morning. >> reporter: 19-year-old robel
7:15 am
phillipos is charged with lying to investigators. later today, his lawyers will ask a judge to release him on bail saying he's not a flight risk and had nothing to do with the deadly bombings. meanwhile the family of tamerlan tsarnaev is still trying to find out where they can bury him. it's caused quite a bit of controversy in this area. a small group of protesters gathered this weekend at the funeral home where his body is being held. they're upset that he could be buried on american soil. despite the outrage tsarnaev's uncle arrived to prepare for a muslim burial. >> to prepare his body, to wash him and shroud him. railroad the family wants tsarnaev to be buried in cam bridge cambridge, where he lived. but the city manager would reject a permit.
7:16 am
>> dwouyou do have to bury him. >> reporter: sources told cbs news that small traces of bombs have been discovered inside his apartment. dzhokhar told investigators they built the bombs there. tamerlan's widow is also in scrutiny. her laptop found "inspire." investigators are now trying to find out if russell or her husband accessed that material. the fund established to help aid the victims has raised $28 million so far. later this evening, the fund administrator will hold a town hall to solicit information, to solicit advice from the public on how to disperse those funds. he hopes to start cutting checks by the end of june. >> thank you. and a night of fun in california
7:17 am
turned into horror. a limousine with ten people caught fire. they were traveling on the san mateo bridge going across the san francisco bridge. five women including the bride were killed and investigators are still trying to find out what led to the fiery inferno. >> this is the fiery scene caught by a cell phone saturday night. they're trying to figure out how the limousine became engulfed in smoke and flames as the vehicle was traveling on the bridge. five were killed including a bride who was celebrating with her girlfriends. >> it appears they were trapped inside, not able to get out. >> reporter: the four others were able to get out. >> good samaritans did stop and assist and try to pull people from the fire. >> reporter: the woman who shot the cell phone video said she felt the intense heat two lanes away. >> i thought, oh, my god, maybe
7:18 am
there are people. as i got closer, i saw people crying. >> reporter: the owner is cooperating with police but he doesn't know how the fire started. >> you know, i'm really shocked. my family is deeply shocked. >> reporter: the bride has been identified as a 31-year-old nurse. she was recently married in the u.s. but planned to return to her native philippines for another ceremony next month. for "cbs this morning," carter evans, los angeles. a huge wildfire in southern california could be fully contained today. it burned about 44 square miles since thursday. at one point thousands more were threatened. officials think the fire started when debris accidentally ignited. it is time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe.

7:34 am
sentencing. robert painter, attorney for the mon go ongovernment says the sales drive a black market. >> in fact uks if there's a global marketplace for the sale of these illicit fossils. so what you're talking about is a trade that's worth millions and millions of dollars each year. >> reporter: meanwhile the tyrannosaurus batar skeleton is packed and prepared for a trip across the world, more than 6,000 miles back home to mongolia. for "cbs this morning" i'm elaine quijano, new york. >> with us and john miller former fbi asus tent and director. okay. this is a pretty huge dinosaur. how did it make it through without detection? >> so this dinosaur was dug up
7:35 am
in the dead of the night about 15 years ago and was smuggled in the united states in a southeast of shipments from 2010 to 20707 with false documents. >> so it was sent in a series of shichlts. >> that's right. this was a very large dinosaur. hundreds of bones. had to brought in from the rock in which it was dug up in the desert and ultimately assembled in new york. >> does this thing happen a lot, where people send in antiquities to sell? >> sadly it has happened a lot more than you think. we rushed saddam hussein's ceremonial ak-47 after the war in iraq. >> who stole that? >> that was stolen by looters right after the fall of the government. i just returned a tapestry of spains's that was stolen.

7:37 am
the ground it's state property. they had to jump through a lot of hoops to conceal it that and there are very few places that have this kind of fossil record. obviously the mongol yachbs want to make sure this is is kay lated by paleontologists and not a bunch ee professional looters. >> often they don't get the chance to examine it and study it, right? >> this is one of the very rare nearly complete skeletons or a tyrannosaurus ba tar, cousin to the t-rex. it needs to be properly kpa vated and shown. >> okay. that's what i was going. 70 million years old. >> 70 million years old. >> and you thought we were dinosaurs. >> so hu w.h.o. is the perpetrator. >> so a man named eric prakopi

7:45 am
us? >> one thing we saw this year is there was a lot of activity. they were doing spin-offs and merger activity. what it tells you is business is kind of of getting active again. profits were high. they weren't as high as last year but these companies are making a lot of money and they're starting to do things after being on the sidelines for the past couple of years, of course, the next question is what when are they going to hire again. you can hope based on this activity there may be reason to -- if demand comes back -- >> so warrensaying. for a long time he's been saying i do really well but i've been competing with half the population. his point is women are the key to prosperity and we're not using all of our talent pool.

hey, good morning, charlie and gayle. good morning, everybody. it's 8:00 a.m. in the west. welcome back to "cbs this morning." the fight in congress over guns. really a battle over messaging. republican pollster and cbs news analyst frank lund tells us what the public is telling him. nursing is changing in america. find out why the field is attracting more men and why they're outearning women. plus, burt baccharat. first here's today's "eye opener at 8 #."." >> the israelis aren't admitting they did it. >> two air strikes by israel amount to a declaration of war, said syria.
8:01 am
>> britain says the attack on a military complex killed 42 soldiers. >> when you get a terrorist o like hezbollah i think it's concern for lots of people. >> in an interview with the house oversight committee, he directly contradicts administration claims that the attack was first thought to be nothing more than a demonstration gone awry. >> i think he was being suppressed a little bit, and we need to hear from him. >> the family of tamerlan tsarnaev is still trying to find out where they can bury him. >> he just bombed us and we're taking care of him? it's not fair. >> gun-control advocates are trying to figure out if there's a way to engineer a do-over where they convince a handful of senators to change their minds on this issue. >> this dinosaur was dug up many the dead of the night about 10 to 15 years ago. and was smuggled into the united states. >> it's tied to the top of this car. >> by the way, nice haircut. >> thank you. >> his point is that women are really the key to our prosperity. >> can you imagine the first time you step out with a partner
8:02 am
now? you think you're going to keep that a secret with your 7-foot self? >> i'm going to try. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. israel is beefing up its defense in the north near syria's border. that follows two israeli air strikes inside syria. the assad government says the attacks are effectively a declaration of war. >> allen pizzey is in tel aviv. allen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well the massive explosions that rocked the syrian capital targeted missile shipments bound for israel's archenemy hezbollah in lebanon. sent from iran according to unnamed israeli officials. the syrians for their part said it was a flagrant violation of international law that made the middle east a more dangerous place. and said it was proof that the israelis had links to rebel groups trying to overthrow the regime of syrian president bashar al assad.
8:03 am
the israelis simply said there would be more attacks if they detected more missiles heading for hezbollah. now, reports here suggest that however the israelis have used diplomatic back channels to make it clear to the syrians that overthrowing assad is not part of their agenda. whether or not he believes it remains to be seen. there's little about it he can do anyway. charlie? norah? gayle? >> thank you allen. the six staff members killed at sandy hook elementary will be honored today in newton. the congressional medal of honors society, the group's highest civilian award, the six women are being honored for their courage and sacrifice trying to protect the students during the shootings in december. and the white house says it's not giving up on tighter background checks for gun buyers, but this weekend the nra promised no compromise in opposing new gun laws. >> where is the middle ground?
8:04 am
frank lunz is with us. >> good morning. >> the nra says it's about the second amendment. if you are trying to influence the conversation about gun control and for gun control, what are the words you ought to use? >> first off, it should be gun control, it should be public safety. the american people are less interested in the issue of gun zs and more about security. second, those who proposed this legislation, they're on the majority of the side of the american people. 80% of americans and about 70% of gun owners support the legislation to compromise right now. yet the reason why it's doing well is that the message itself isn't communicated to the people in this case who matter most which are gun owners themselves. if i were to ask about 25 people in the studio right now, if this were america, over 40% would own a gun. the key is to communicate to them that they have the right to do so -- >> but frank, that doesn't make any sense. if you're saying the messaging is wrong, then why do 80% of the
8:05 am
people support it? >> that's why it hasn't passed. that's exactly the point. how can you get 80% of americans who support this legislation and yet the senate didn't vote for it? >> that would suggest it's political courage. >> the republicans are afraid to vote for it because they're afraid of a primary on the right. the five democrats who don't want to vote for it they're afraid of the general election because they're from southern states. so you can see the political dynamic at play here. >> but norah's right, it's political courage. people do not want to go against the argument that they see in primaries about the political pressure can be brought. >> it's half about political coverage, but -- courage, but for some of these people it also is about principle. and it's very hard to have this conversation in the northeast because what we think here in new york or philly or washington, d.c. is very different than what they think in dallas or houston. >> it's about what principles? >> it's the -- the question is whether you are dealing with the second amendment and rights that gun owners believe are sacred versus those who see that the
8:06 am
ease and ability of getting guns and putting guns in the hands of people who should not have them that it is tantamount that you get those guns away from them. >> over the weekend, "they're coming after us to destroy us never surrender, you can't take away our guns." so how do we change the messaging on both sides? >> and that is the whole problem and it's the reason why in shows like this, because you can actually talk about how divided we are based on principle. >> how would you frame it? how would you frame it? >> i would be doing ads right now into these republican areas saying i'm a gun owner and a lifetime member of the nra, but i still believe that if you are mentally unstable you should not have access to a gun. and there's no reason to have clips that are 15 bullets long. >> but that's senator manchin right there. >> that's the point. >> but i just want to clear this up. >> i want to do it from the perspective of an nra member not from the perspective of -- >> you're talking about how to influence the congress, not influencing people because as norah said 82% are there.
8:07 am
it's just about congress. >> and it really is this divided. and charlie, i do hope that at some point you'll have a conversation about the values that we hold the core principles that we have, because the truth right now is -- and i wish it were not this case -- republicans and democrats don't just think differently, they behave differently. and it becomes almost impossible to find that common ground. >> the conversation will certainly continue. thank you, frank. dozens stood outside last night to mourn the part-time soccer referee who died one week after a player punched him during a game. terrell brown reports on the outcry over a violent act in a league for kids. >> reporter: ricardo fortillo was passionate about soccer. and now that love for the game has claimed the 46-year-old referee's life. >> he was a father. he was a friend. he was a grandfather. >> reporter: trouble began on april 27th. when fortillo gave a yellow card
8:08 am
to a 17-year-old goalie for pushing an opposing player during a imagine in taylorsville utah. >> i guess this guy didn't like it and when he was writing down his notes, he just came out of nowhere and punched him. >> reporter: he was struck in the side of the head began feeling dizzy and vomiting blood. police found him on the field curled up in a fetal position. he was taken to the hospital where he later slipped into a coma. >> and we really have taken heroic measures to try and control the pressure in his brain. >> reporter: despite those efforts, he died saturday night, one week after being attacked. the unnamed juvenile suspect is in custody for aggravated assault and may now face additional charges. >> that was his first game with us. and unfortunately, that's what happened that day. >> reporter: it's just the latest example of reckless behavior from players and parents in youth and recreational sports leagues. >> there's this mania about sports in our country now that i think that's close to boiling out of control.
8:09 am
>> reporter: his daughters had begged him to quit refereeing in the past after aggressive players broke his ribs and a leg. >> i just want to say that they should think before they do something stupid. because they hurt my whole family family. >> reporter: a family dealing dealing with a sudden and bewildering loss. for "cbs this morning," terrell brown, new york. a volcano eruption in alaska may disrupt air travel this week. the cleveland volcano started pumping out ash and steam on saturday. the volcano sits under a major air traffic route between asia and south america. so far it's not high enough to affect flaens. air traffic controllers have rerouted some flights as a precaution. helen mirren was not amused by a group of street drummers in london. she's appearing as queen elizabeth in a play. she left the theater during intermission and told the drummers outside to shut up. she didn't exactly use the

8:21 am
>> so you just said david, that it's confusion for patients and confusing for doctors. so where do you stand? >> there's no question to me screening works. screening saves lie ss lives, but i think the question is once we identify cancer do we treat it. the answer is no. many of us as men have prostate cancer within us. during the vietnam war almost all kids in the 20s and 30s had prostate cancer and that didn't need to be treated. we can look under the microscope and know which ones don't need it. i don't say throw out the baby with the bathwater. i say let's screen and treat those who need to. >> say someone comes in and wants to be screened. you say yes go ahead and have a test but don't in isly advocate treatment at that age fwhas have probably less than a ten-year
