good morning to you. >> we begin with alarming violence in the mideast. a car bombing this morning in lebanon killed a leading politician and former ambassador to the u.s. >> the attack is raising fear that is the civil war my spread to other parts of the region. good morning, mark. >> good morning. it has been another day of ballistic politics in lebanon. big cars and five dead and 70 injured. the main thing was the finance minster and ambassador to the u.s. an opponent of the group hezbollah. politics has again become loud and deadly. a car bomb shattered beirut's central business district. there had been a spade of them as the fight turned bloody between various factions many of them aligned to the civil war in syria next door.
7:04 am
the target was the former lebanese cabinet minster and ambassador to the u.s. known for opposing syrian president and for opposing hezbollah, his ally and demands for more power. his last tweet an hour before he was killed was hezbollah is pressing hard to be granted similar powers and security and foreign policy matters that syria exercised in lebanon for 15 years. this appears to have been hezbollah's tweet. the car bomb is the weapon of choice. his driver and three unlucky bystanders were killed in the explosion that rock would the city at about 9:30 local time. security forces blocked off roads and much of the city went into lockdown following the blast. it's a routine beirut is sadly used to. the explosion was not an isolated effect. several recent bombings targeted
7:05 am
hezbollah leaders. the attack is boom for bang again. it's not a new experience for beirut and the revival is that will be feared. >> mark phillips thank you. the fallout is growing from the christmas delivery failure by u.p.s. and fedex. some are still waiting for packages. >> u.p.s. and many are promising refunds. at least one senator is weighing in. the corporate home of u.p.s. good morning to you. >> good morning. neither fedex or u.p.s. said how many packages are delayed. they brought in extra people and rented trucks to deliver a late christmas to a lot of angry customers. u.p.s. now promises to refund shipping costs to many customer who is did not get their packages on time. they are not the only ones trying to get back in good graces with unhappy shoppers. wal-mart, amazon and kohl's are
7:06 am
offering refunds to gift cards for future purchases. this is not enough for jeff. he had an iphone case for a gift for his grandmother and she left town before it was delivered. >> i don't know what to say about how frustrating it is. it's not the gift but that awe moment. you can't recapture that. the wow factor is gone. >> u.p.s. and major retailers blame it on being caught off guard by a mix of bad weather, last minute shopping and a 10% increase in online orders. some lawmakers in washington argue those companies should have been prepared. in a radio interview, connecticut senator richard refunds to anyone affected. >> the reasons or excuses given by u.p.s. or fedex or any of the
7:07 am
deliver sourcy is inadequate. >> despite the backlash many are taking to social media to lend support to u.p.s. one post reads i for one appreciate all you do all year long to ensure we get our deliveries in a timely manner. if a late present is the worst thing that happens to them they should consider themselves lucky. being with loved ones far exceeds getting a present from anyone. >> a u.p.s. spokesman said only air and international customers are eligible for refunds. they have idea to say what the refund policy would be. >> thank you. performs and crew aboard a ship trapped in antarctica can see rescuers. they have been locked in ice about 1500 miles south of tasmania. their freedom is on the horizon. >> snow dragon was the first to

7:10 am
the best performance since 1996. the senior columnist for yahoo finance. >> happy new year. up 25% for the year. what is going on? >> an outbreak of decent news for the economy. the markets are a little bit ahead of the actual economy in terms of building in this improvement. a lot of these fears and the aftershocks of the crisis did not come true this year. they couldn't stand in the way of the economy and you can't overlook the fact that money is cheap and interest rates are low. it really seemed to take hold as the year went on. >> you look at the numbers and they go up up up. can that continue in 2014? >> it can continue if we are on that from the late 90s. i think you can plug that in and assume that. what we have to keep in mind is the stock market tries to value corporate profits. they seem like they can go up
7:11 am
and you can continue with the problem. it's a steep run this last stretch too. even though people on wall street are very enthusiastic about the direction of the economy, it's not necessarily the case that they meet our expectations. can this economy and stock market absorb higher interest rates? >> some of these companies are hoarding so much cash right now. what are you watching for in 2014? what are your concerns? >> corporate behavior is one of those things. you are investing for longer term growth and not buy back their own stock. the interest rates, we don't know. the federal reserve said they will slightly pull back on how they are trying to stimulate the economy. we don't know if interest rates go up further than they can handle say the housing market or may stall out. those are the concerns and overseas, we have high hopes that they contribute to growth. >> correction in 2014? >> you would think so.
7:12 am
it doesn't have to be anything devastating. it seems like everybody is all in and we can only go down. >> thank you so much. in less than a week the first americans will have health insurance under the affordable care act. many of the early problems are now fixed but some areas need work. wyatt andrews is in washington with the latest. >> good morning. by all accounts a federal website for obamacare handled the last minute crush of well over two million visitors but there sign up backlogs in several states. three states have websites that are not fully functional and that is forcing tens of thousands to enroll on paper. three of the states that built their own health care exchanges, massachusetts, maryland and oregon still have website problems that have slowed or stopped online enrollments for obamacare. the most surprising state is massachusetts which invented the
7:13 am
online health exchange six years ago and had to process tens of thousands of applications on paper because its new website cannot determine federal subsidy subsidies subsidies. in oregon they let customers compare online but not able to let customers buy. the 12,000 resident who is did buy insurance had to file paper applications. in maryland the website works, but slowly and unreliabley. here's how martin o'malley described it last monday. >> it's not perfect. people still get caught. >> massachusetts is now one of two states blaming the website's failure on the main contractor cgi. it's the same firm connected to the failed roll out of the federal website, massachusetts announced they are withholding all future payments to cgi. they could not be reached for comment, but previously said
7:14 am
they are working to repair the problems. duvall patrick. >> there is no denying the performance of the it vendor. the main event is making sure they do everything they can and make sure that happens. >> those three states with troubled websites have an estimated million people that might qualify for coverage. officials in oregon tell us they hope to announce a working shop and purchase website in the first two weeks of january. >> thank you very much. a safety net for jobless americans is about to vanish. the federal government's five-year program of extended benefits will run out tomorrow. congress could not keep it going. a major is in washington where he will host face the nation. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> how many americans affect this exchange? >> this will hit about 1.3 million americans. those hardest hit by the great
7:15 am
recession and those we call chronically unemployed. jobless for more than six months. they provided benefits for more than 90 weeks. that has been cut back to 73 weeks in some states and starting tomorrow anyone jobless longer than 26 weeks will receive no benefits at all that that is just over $300 a week. >> why wasn't it part of the budget deal? are. >> it wasn't a part of the deal because republicans, particularly the house did not want to include the benefits without finding a way to pay for it. it costs about $25 billion to keep the benefits going and the white house did not put up much of a fight. there is a senate bill to extend for three months. president obama said he will sign the legislation to get to the desk. this will be the first item up for debate after the new year. if it passes the future in the house is still uncertain. the democrats have been pounding the issue this week and promise to keep up the pressure next
7:16 am
year. speaking of congress they are under pressure to produce. a poll found 73% believes congress has done nothing to address the nation's problems. 2 time 2/3 say it's the worst congress in their time. >> this sunday face the nation looks at the big stories of the year. the surveillance program. they will interview general michael hayden. you can see face the nation this sunday morning on cbs. >> people in louisiana are dead following a series of shootings. authors say 38-year-old ben freeman attacked his in-laws and current wife and the head of a hospital where he used to work. he killed three of them before turning the gun on himself. it happened in two towns about 45 miles southwest of new orleans. >> the ntsb is investigating a plane crash in fresno,
7:17 am
california. it went down 800 feet of a small runway. the two people aboard were killed. it may have clipped a tree before slamming into the front yard and catching fire. the victims were reportedly the pilot's nephew. no one on the ground was hurt. >> a cold and dark morning in michigan and maine. they are making slow progress after the ice storm, but at least 79,000 homes and businesses are still blocked out. some may not get electricity until new year's day. >> this morning lucky delta airlines customers are looking forward to trips that cost nearly nothing. they locked in ultra low fares for about two hours. a glitch displayed the deals like $25 round trip tickets from new york to los angeles. delta will honor any fares performed at the incorrect price. they don't know how many customers got a rock bottom deal. >> time to show you this morning's headlines. politico looks at the budget

7:34 am
why some humans are concerned about the new warning system. >> patrols by air and sea are the traditional ways of spotting sharks off australia's coast. but now when sharks swim too close to beaches, they send a warning message themselves via twitter. scientists have attached transmitters to well over 300 shark like this four meter long great white. when the attack shark swims within a kilometer it triggers the alert picked up by security. that computer turns the shark's signal into a twitter message. a tagged tiger shark was recently spotted off this coast. by following the shark's tweets surfers and swimmers can make an
7:35 am
informed choice. the old fashioned warnings on the papers and the radio. >> they eventually get that information out to the following day on which they have been long gone and might not be relevant. they are saying it's seconds. >> person australia is now the world's deadliest attacks for shark attacks. they believe it was useful and it's not enough. it put out bait and hunting large sharks off popular beaches. a move that angered conservationists. >> this is a knee jerk reaction based on zero signs whatsoever and it will not have positive benefit for beachgoers and their safety and it's certainly going to have a decimating effect on great white sharks or other endangered sharks. >> the chances of being attacked by a shark are miniscule, but every attack brings fear and damages the local economy.
