the united states senate is not what it once was. >> severe weather slammed the eastern half of our country. winds caused large trees and homes and knocked out power for thousands. >> hillary clinton gave her first interview since the election. >> as a person, i'm okay. as an american, i'm pretty worried. >> can't find the ball. it is stuck to his chest protector. i have never seen that before. >> hoffman takes the masters by storm. >> that is is something special. >> all that matters. >> funny thing about don rickles, the news that he mediterranean sea launched 59 missiles. they pounded an air base in western syria, first video in from the scene shows significant damage from the missile attacks. the president explained his decision late last night. >> tonight i ordered a targeted military strike on the air field in syria from where the chemical attack was launched.
>> margaret brennan is with the president in florida. holly williams is in turkey, but we begin with david martin, at the pentagon. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a u.s. official says 58 of the 59 cruise missiles targeted at that syrian air base hit their target. one suffered a failure of its gps guidance system and the pentagon is still looking for where it landed. the base is no longer in operation. and the pentagon says there is no need for additional strikes unless syria uses chemical weapons again. nearly 60 cruise missiles thundered toward a syrian air base just three days after the regime used chemical weapons in an attack against its own people. tomahawk land attack missiles launched from two destroyers, the uss porter and uss ross cat mediterranean sea. the strike targeted an air field
believed to be the takeoff point of the plane that dropped the lethal gas on a syrian village killing and injuring hundreds. video from russian and syrian state tv provided footage of the aftermath of the attack. the missiles hit aircraft, ammunition depos, air defense systems and air traffic control radars. the pentagon said the attack was successful and has rendered the air field unusable. prior to 2013, the base located about 50 miles due south of the location of the gas attack had been used to store chemical weapons. but the u.s. did not target areas where remaining weapons might be stored. the strike comes three and a half years after former president barack obama threatened military action against the assad regime. >> a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around for being utilized. >> despite threatening air
strikes -- >> we deter assad from using chemical weapons. >> reporter: -- president obama backed off after bashar al assad promised to hand over his stockpile of chemical weapons. a promise this week's attack indicates the dictator did not keep. the u.s. gave russia advance warning of the strike and the missiles did not target any of the areas where the russians were believed to be living. russia's allies, syria, appears to have been caught by surprise and unable to scramble any of its jets before the missiles hit. >> david, thank you. the missile strike on syria marks a sudden shift by the trump administration. the president said for years that the u.s. should not take military action against syria's government. and secretary of state rex tillerson said just last week that syria's people will decide the future of president assad. margaret brennan is in palm beach, florida, where president trump is meeting with china's
leader again today. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president trump has shown he is willing to use at least limited military action to enforce that red line against chemical weapons that was first drawn by his predecessor. the trump administration believes that bashar al assad has used sarin gas in at least three attacks over the past two weeks. >> assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. >> reporter: in a late evening statement, president trump said the images of small children choking to death on poison gas moved him to action. >> it was a slow and brutal death for so many. even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered. >> reporter: the decision to strike was made after the president arrived thursday in palm beach for a summit with chinese president xi jinping. mr. trump consulted with h.r.
mcmaster and secretary mattis. shortly after the meals, the strikes commenced. president, first publicly indicated he was considering action following wednesday's meeting with jordan's king. the president worried that toxic agents could end up in the hands of terrorists and use that threat as justification for striking without the permission of congress. >> it is in this vital national security interest of the united states to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. >> reporter: secretary of state rex tillerson said the sarin gas attacks were a clear violation of the 2013 diplomatic deal that russia and the u.s. brokered to have syria hand over its chemical stockpile. he said after president obama had turned a blind eye to assad's repeated violation, inaction in syria was not an option for president trump. >> previous attempts at changing assad's behavior have all failed
and failed very dramatically. >> reporter: the syria strike may help china's president xi jinping to gauge mr. trump's willingness to use force against nuclear armed north korea. the two leaders meet today, and next week secretary of state rex tillerson flies to moscow where he is expected to discuss syria with vladimir putin. >> thank you very much, margaret. syria and its closest allies are s are speaking out against the missile attacks. >> reporter: there are no surprises at all in the reaction of the syrian regime, and its ally russia. the syrian president bashar al assad called the strikes on the air base an act of unjust and arrogant aggression today. syria says it makes the u.s. a partner with isis and other terrorist groups. russia claims the strikes violate international law, and
it is suspending air space coordination with the u.s. in syria. meaning an increased risk of u.s. and russian jets colliding. now, remember, both the regime and russia have denied there was a chemical attack on the town on tuesday, despite all of the evidence we have seen emerging since then. several american allies including the united kingdom, turkey, jordan, saudi arabia, and israel support the strikes. we spoke with several syrian rebel groups overnight, very happy the u.s. has taken military action against the syrian regime, because they hope it will do something to stop the regime from bombing them. charlie? >> thanks, holly. republican senator marco rubio is with us from the capital. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> you said you support this policy. my question is, where does it go from here and what are the risks? >> well, that's a great question. it is an important one. i think ultimately, i hope the moment has arrived, the white house and the administration and
i believe this is the case. after the crimes he's committed against his own people, there will always be a radical element fighting against him until he's removed from power. and what are the risks? well, i think the risks are an escalation, we don't know what the russians are going to do in response. so far seems pretty measured but i certainly think that there is an effort to remove assad, they'll get more aggressive. >> how would you remove him? >> well, first of all, he has to be removed through a combination of alternatives on the ground that are syrians, not foreign fighters, not foreign forces, and, again, this reminds me of one of those cage matches in professional wrestling, 18 different people in the ring and sometimes they fight each other and two of them turn on somebody else. you've got hezbollah, you've got iran, you've got the syrian forces, you've got the russians, you've got multiple rebel groups that are not jihadists and then a al nusra, and isis, of course.
i think you've got to have a sunni, which is the majority in syria, a sunni nonjihadist alternative, what we should have done in 2011, and i hope now the work will begin to carve out a space for them to be able to grow and get more powerful so they can be a clear alternative to assad in whatever happens. hopefully a political negotiation, not continued bloodshed. >> the syrian president has killed nearly 500,000 of his own people. 5 million syrians have fled as refugees. he's gassed his own people including children. is bombing an air field enough? >> well, in terms of retribution or punishment for what he's d done, of course not. he's a war criminal. >> are you concerned now, senator, about a retaliatory strike of any kind? >> from syria? >> syria, russia. >> yeah, well, first of all, the syrians don't have the capacity to retaliate against the united states other than perhaps doing asymmetrical things or a chemical attack, which is one of
the things that we need to talk about different from the past. you do now have hundreds of american troops as advisers on the ground helping to lead the fight against isis. if assad is willing to use sarin gas against his own people, civilians, he's willing to use those against americans. >> why do you think he thought he could get away with it. >> that's a good question. number one this is about regime survival. they feel like they're losing territory as it were, critical to their survival. he's prepared to go all the way. he's gotten nowhere else to go. for him, life or death situation. the other i would say, i said this the other day, i do believe that when the sentiment is out there that somehow we have given up on efforts to remove him and he's going to stay, i do think it gave him a sense -- an incentive to get away with something like this. >> thank you, senator. good to have you. next half hour, michael morell and fran townsend join us. they look at the impact of last night's missile strike and what could happen next ahead on "can cbs this morning."
>> breaking news this morning from stockholm, sweden. someone drove a truck into a department store in the swedish capital. police say two people were killed. jonathan vigliotti is following this unfolding story now from london. good morning. >> good morning. this happened on a crowded street, just outside a popular department store in the capital. images from the scene appear to show the truck crashed into the side of the building, one photo showed a fireball at the point of impact. you can also make out an h&m store in another picture. swedish media reporting gunshots may have been fired, police confirm at least two people have been killed, and a large number wounded. it comes just two weeks after the london attack where a man piled a rental car through pedestrians near parliament and at this point swedish police say they are treating this as a possible terror attack. norah? >> the senate is expected to confirm president trump's supreme court nominee neil gorsuch in the next couple of hours. you're looking at live pictures of the final debate under way
right now. the vote follows a controversial change to a long-standing senate rule. under the so-called nuclear option, senators just need a simple majority to confirm a supreme court nominee. instead of 60 votes. jan crawford is at capital where republicans say democrats forced them to make the rule change. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the only thing that republicans and democrats could agree on yesterday was that the nuclear option will forever change the senate. >> i believe our actions will haunt us. >> reporter: republicans and democrats offered stern warnings. >> this train is running over a cliff. it is taking not just the senate with it, but the supreme court and we need to apply the brakes. >> reporter: it made no difference. after democrats refused to end a filibuster blocking the nomination of neil gorsuch -- >> i raise the point of order. >> reporter: -- mitch mcconnell launhed the so-called nuclear option.
the horse had already left the barn n 2013, then senate majority leader harry reid did away with filibusters for lower court nominations. at the time, then minority leader mcconnell voiced a prescient warning. >> state of my friends on the other side of the aisle, you will regret this and maybe sooner than you think. >> reporter: so on thursday, in a party line vote, 52-48, republicans changed the rules of the senate to confirm justices by a simple majority. >> in one day, majority has left a distinction between our chamber and our colleagues across the capital. >> reporter: senators worry the% change will create a hyper environment where building bridges is no longer necessary. >> i hope i'm wrong. but i think we set in motion the eventual demise of the senate. >> reporter: judge gorsuch is replacing the court's most conservative justice, but justice anthony kennedy who is expecteded to retire in the next year or two, is more moderate and now confirming his replacement could be done even
over staunch democratic opposition. >> jan, thank you so much. this morning, the world is remembering the so-called merchant of venom, don rickles. he died of kidney failure yesterday at his los angeles home. he would have turned 91 years old next month. in truth, he was one of the kindest, caring and most sensitive human beings we have ever known. david letterman added, such a professional, such a gentleman, already miss him. >> god bless you, don rickles and thank you. thank you for everything you've done. >> late night hosts paid tribute to don rickles shortly after he passed away. >> i know it sounds crazy to say he was too young, but he was because he was youthful and funny and sharp and generation. >> during his more than 50 year care care career. rickles managed to insult just
about everyone, especially his friends. >> i must be honest. i never liked lucille ball. i never did. >> he still got them to laugh along with him. i spoke with him in 2007. >> almost a mark of distinction to be in that audience and have you pick him out. >> some people do. i have a knack, i don't know how, but i have a knack of making fun of somebody and exaggerating without hurting him. >> one of first audience members he insulted was frank sinatra, who later became his life long friend. >> i'm a jew and you're an italian and we have what? >> rickles credits him with the biggest treat of his life, a gig at one of president reagan's inaugural galas. >> it is only a joke, mrs. reagan. >> give me a break. i'm so lonely. >> his zingers made him a favorite of late night hosts.
he often walked on stage to music evoking a matador about to face off with a bull. >> you and your wife have the same name? >> what are you, a detective. >> his best friend, bob newhart. >> bob is saying what other people are thinking, but they're afraid to say. he's their voice. >> oh, goodness. >> delivery too, charlie. >> yeah, the turnout across the board shows how much he was loved by that community. >> you can see jimmy kimmel's emotion. you had a real conversation with him, it wasn't just a joke a minute. very smart guy. >> absolutely. smart and interesting and curious. >> he will be missed. >> he will be missed. >> very much so. >> silicon valley wants to train you to constantly check your smartphone. ahead, what a tech insider showed "60 minutes" about industry techniques to keep our,

we're learning more about the missile attack ordered by president trump on an air base in syria overnight. u.s. allies are praising the move, while syria and russia denounced it. welcome back to "cbs this morning." new video of this coming in overnight, the aftermath of the early morning strike. syrian officials say at least seven people died in the attack. there were two n destroyers in the mediterranean that fired 59 tomahawk cruise missiles. president trump says the syrian base launched tuesday's chemical weapons attack that killed more than 80 people. >> it is in this vital, national security interest of the united states to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. there can be no dispute that
syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention and ignored the urging of the u.n. security council. >> cbs news senior national security contributor michael morell and cbs news senior national security analyst fran townsend, homeland security adviser to president george w. bush, good morning and welcome to both of you. fran, let me start with you. what are the implications of this strike? >> look, i think in a single sentence we saw president obama draw a red line, we saw president trump enforce it last night. and that gives him leverage. this has been a horrific violation of international norms that defied the use of chemical weapons and so the president acted not only in u.s. national interest, but the interest of our regional allies. he was with the king of jordan, clearly was moved, both by the
pictures coming out and the tremendous threat that this poses to the stability of jordan. >> michael, what message does it send to assad and to the world in general? >> so he will look at the target set, right, the target set was a single air base used for the chemical weapons attack. so the message assad will take is i cannot use chemical weapons again. he will get that message, this will deter him. but we did not go after regime command and control. so that will also send a message we're not going to try to force him out militarily. so he will -- he will read both of those messages. >> is it risky for him to read it that way? might in fact these things escalate so there is a regime change planned? >> so i think he will continue to use his conventional forces to go after his own civilians and to go after the opposition. that killing will continue.
and if we want that to stop, we need to put additional pressure on him. >> fran, should he have done more? he's getting praise from most of the world, secondly getting praise for the way it was executed, fast and with secrecy. >> look, charlie, you talk to sources inside the administration, they say the driving principle is proportionality. one you didn't want unnecessary civilian casualties when what you were doing was retaliating. two, you wanted to be careful not to be hitting other sites, there are six major air fields, we only hit the one from which they launched this awful chemical attack because what you didn't want to do is hit potential other stockpiles and cause a plume where you caused the release of sarin or chlorine gas. >> michael, this is a chance for the secretary of state to really see what his relationship with vladimir putin is when he goes on tuesday to moscow. >> going to be a very important trip. the russians bear significant
responsibility for what president assad has done in syria to his own people. they bear responsibility for the chemical attack last week and it is going to be very important for secretary tillerson to make that clear to putin and to make it clear that his support for assad has to stop. >> what determines what the u.s. does next from here, fran. michael, to you too. fran you go first. >> i think what you're going to see, i know the administration is now looking at how much of the underlying intelligence are they willing to declassify to allow nikki haley to make the case in the u.n. security council. we have seen statements of support from allies and partners around the world. and so the question is, not only is this a u.s. responsibility, right, to deal with the civil war and the fallout and the instability it is causing, regionally and to the european allies, but what are our partners willing to do now. we need more than statements of support if we want to change the civil war in syria. and so i think you're going to see sort of the pulling together
of the coalition and region, the saudis, the jordanians, what are they willing to do to now use this as a leverage point to turn the tide there. >> michael, speaking about leverage, what are other ways that the u.s. can scare assad, tactical strikes at his closest assets? >> the president sent a very strong message to assad and everybody else in the world, you can't use these weapons. he gets very high marks for that. he could get even higher marks that if he uses this as an opportunity to bring the world together, to put pressure on assad, to come to the negotiating table, and end the civil war in syria once and for all. he has an opportunity to do that, and i hope he does it and it has to start in moscow next week. >> you've talked about perhaps bombing presidential aircraft on the ground, his helicopters, his office buildings. >> so, norah, that's what i meant earlier when i said we did
not go after regime command and control targets. we did not go after targets that would send him a message that he has to go. and i actually think it would have been good had we done that last night. we didn't, so we're going to have to find other ways to put pressure on him. >> if this succeeds, because the president constantly referred to the red line and president obama, if this succeeds, it will -- it will cause questions about you have to make sure you are -- if you make a statement, you're willing to back it up. >> that's right. and i do think this puts sort of very explicit pressure now on those -- we also have national security issues with the iranians who are supporting the assad regime, the russians. by the way, if i was north korea, this is -- the timing of this while president xi is here gives impetus to the conversation with the chinese. we're willing to act alone. that may not be our preference but we need you to act with us. >> in this particular case, do you think the u.s. should wait for other countries to join in
before there are additional attacks against syria if that's the conversation? >> one of the -- one of the important successes last night is that the president acted decisively. he didn't take weeks to try to bring other people on board. that's a message that is going to be heard not only in syria, and in the region, but as fran said, around the world. i think that's very important. and so i would encourage not waiting for others to join -- i would encourage the president to continue to act decisively. >> michael morell and fran townsend, thank you. >> thank you. we'll continue to monitor developments out of syria. now, here are some of the other big headlines this morning. the washington post says there is turmoil in the west wing. a battle between steve bannon and the president's son-in-law jared kushner is reportedly creating an atmosphere of tension and panic, that is based on interviews with more than 20 white house officials and people close to those in the administration. they claim bannon is losing ground after being blamed for several policy failures.
kushner has been called the trump whisperer. wonder who will win out in that battle. i don't know. son-in-law or the chief strategist. >> i think i go with the son-in-law. blood is thicker, they say, than water. >> interesting. the wall street journal says job growth in the u.s. economy dropped significantly last month. the labor department said a short time ago that employers added 98,000 jobs in march, less than half of the numbers in january and february. but the unemployment rate fell to 4.5% because nearly half a million americans say they found new jobs. and the new york times said hillary clinton believed that russian interference contributed to her election defeat. during a conference on women's issues here in new york, she said the hacking was among the factors that turned voters against her. >> the combination of the comey letter in october 28th, wikileaks, which played a much bigger role than i think many
people understand yet, had the determinative effect. it is fair to say, as you just did, nick, that certainly misogyny played a role. i mean, that just -- >> she also said she does not envision running for political office ever again. people always say, didn't your mom always say never say never? >> determinative effect, i didn't see that was the exact wording she used. >> what exactly did she mean. >> yes. your smartphone may be hijacking your mind. in a preview of 60 minutes, how developers design apps to give you rewards when you check your phone. and we invite you to subscribe to our podcast. find news of the day in our podcast originals on itunes and apple's podcast app. you're watching "cbs this morning." n cbs podcasts. you're watching "cbs this morning." i no longer live with the uncertainties of hep c.

do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at mybreo.com. welcome to holiday inn! ♪ ♪ whether for big meetings or little getaways, there are always smiles ahead at holiday inn. how do they make starburst taste so juicy? they use wicked small fighter jets to shoot the juiciness into every starburst.

good morning to our viewers in the west. friday, april 7, 2017. happy friday to you. welcome back to "cbs this morning." the u.s. says the overnight missile attack on syria was proportionate. see how it could get the u.s. more involved in syria's civil war. but first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> president trump is facing the first international crisis and we now know he will not hesitate to use military force. >> the president sent a very strong message to assad and to everybody else in the world. you can't use the weapons. he gets high marks for that. >> are you concerned about a retaliatory strike of any kind? >> you have hundreds of american troops as advisers on the ground helping to lead the fight against isis if assad is willing to use sarin gas against his own people, he's probably willing to use those against america. >> breaking news from stockholm, sweden, someone drove a truck into the department store. >> gunshots may have been fired at this point swedish police say
they're treating this as a possible terror attack. only thing that republicans and democrats could agree on was that the nuclear option will forever change the senate. the world is remembering the is so-called merchant of -- >> you had a conversation with him, it wasn't a joke a minute. very smart guy. >> absolutely. >> it's been a great life. wonderful wife, who's completely opposite. that was a great show. listen, let's go to dinner. it's 8:30. let's have a dinner. she doesn't enjoy it. but she's seen it so many years. she'll say to me as we're going to bed, it was a good show. [ laughter ] >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. syr syr syria's president calls the air strike reckless and the pentagon
says one of the missiles had a gps failure and cannot be found. but the rest hit the target. an air base in western syria. >> it was retaliation for a poison gas attack by the regime and it was captured in disturbing vie we have -- video we have been watching this week and it killed more than 80 civilians, many children. president trump says it was the images of the innocent people including the children choking to death on poison gas that moved him to take action. >> it is in this the vital national security interest of the united states to deter the spread and the use of deadly chemical weapons. years of previous attempts at changing assad's behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically. >> the president says the u.s. targeted the airfield where the
plane that dropped the deadly gas on civilians took off. all of the u.s. missiles were timed to go off within one minute of each other. that amounts to almost 60,000 pounds of explosives going off in 60 ekd is -- seconds. the pentagon says it rendered the airfield unusable. syria did not move any planes in time to avoid the strike. earlier in the broadcast, marco rubio praised the president. but others are saying that he did not get congressional approval for the strikes. rand paul said that the united states was not attacked and the president needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the constitution. democratic senator tim kaine said congress will work with the president but his failure to seek congressional approval is unlawful. the white house official says two dozen members of congress were notified. but the administration says no congressional approval was needed because the strike was necessary to defend the national
interests. i interviewed the syrian president in 2013 after a previous chemical weapon attack was blamed on the assad regime. will it be attacks against american bases in the middle east if there's an air strike? >> you should expect everything. expect everything. not necessarily through the government. it's not only the government -- the government is not the only player in this regime. you have different parties and you have different factions and different -- you have everything in this region now. so you have to expect that. >> tell me what you mean by expect everything? >> expect every action. >> including chemical warfare? >> that depends if the -- if the rebels or the terrorists in this region or any other group have it. it could happen, i don't know. i'm not -- i'm not a fortune-teller to tell you what's going to happen. >> the president of the eurasian
group, welcome. >> thank you. >> give me a sense of what the implications of this action by the president are beyond syria in terms of china, north korea and how the rest of the world sees donald trump? >> this is the first time that the foreign policy establishment and pretty much the entire constellation of american allies are getting on board with a foreign policy action by president trump. we have seen it from the canadians, the germans, the saudis, israelis. we have seen it from both democrats and republicans in the united states. so as a one off attack, you're not going to see significant push back by the syrians. they have no capability to do so. it feels good and i think, you know, there's a reason to do it. but let's keep in mind, if the united states had not responded to these chemical attacks by the syrian regime, no one else was going to. that's a good reason to do it. so it's a good reason not to do it. there's a reason that obama agonized -- trump didn't agonize, he pulled the trigger. that's precisely because now
that trump was saying -- if the assad regime needs a quick transition out of power, there's no way for the u.s. to affect that. taking out one air base isn't going to accomplish that. the russians are clearly not on side with the united states here. the russians and the iranians are the ones with the military force and it's a quagmire. >> do you think -- >> if it's the one off strike and they don't continue down the slippery slope into a military engagement with the syrians, then i don't think it's a mistake. but it's going to be incredibly difficult for trump now having changed policy towards syria to resist the inexorable pull into a complete quagmire. let's be very clear. trump is pulling back on foreign aid. trump is pulling back on support for the state department. trump is not someone who's interested in supporting refugees with the exception of the series of bombs this is not a president that has shown an
inclination to help the people of the over -- over 500,000 that have died, the millions displaced by this conflict. i don't think that changes with the series of 59 tomahawk missiles that were used yesterday. >> syria is home to russia's largest military base outside of russia. >> correct. >> this morning the associated press wire is coming out. russia suspends deal was to prevent midair incidents. russia is going to help to how does this change our relationship with russia? >> when president trump came in, he wanted a rapprochement with putin. that's been undermined over the course of the last couple of months but it is over now. right? i mean, you know, putin directly condemned these strikes. the kremlin has directly condemned these strikes and the potential if the u.s. were to further expand its military engagement in syria, the
russians want to make clear that the potential for direct confrontation between the u.s. and russia is significant. no, i don't think the americans are planning on taking that risk. trump as president or no. but the fact is that the russians are a significant antagonist of the u.s. and u.s./russian relations have deteriorated more in the last 24 hours than under the obama administration. >> does putin have anything to gain by trying to respond in a significant way or simply letting this pass? >> i think that the statements that -- they made clear from their perspective, this was not the syrian government using chemical weapons. it was them hitting the depot and the rebels had these weapons themselves. they have as just suggested suspended the air cooperation where the united states and russia are trying to de-conflict the area. look the israeli government has engaged in one off strategic strikes against the syrians
before and the syrians have done nothing. this is very similar. in the united states as the world's only superpower chooses to drone strike and bomb a country around the world we can do that. no one is going to stand up to us on that. but that's very different than trump saying, we now want assad out. there's no mechanism for trump to get assad out. this is a sugar high and that reflects trump's diet and the way he's engaged in this policy. but, you know, in a month's time, in three months' time u.s. engagement in syria is not going to look like it has a win at all. to the extent that trump embraces i want to do something in syria that's not why the base voted for him and won't improve the foreign policy for the united states. >> this is being described as his first international crisis. how do you think he's doing? >> i think the decision to let the russians know right in advance was the single smartest thing he has done in terms of foreign policy. i think the fact that he had the right people in the room, that matt diswas engaged -- and
hillary clinton was suggesting let's take out all of the airfields. i thought that was incredibly irresponsible of hillary to do. it would have forced russia's hand. this was actually limited. it was tactical. it seemed commensurate to what the syrians were doing. the on thing that's thoroughly problematic, that we need to think about as a country, apparently it is okay for the syrians to -- the government to have killed some 500,000 civilians with conventional means. we don't respond to that. but hit them with chemical means, we respond. is that the message we want to respond globally? >> you see the pictures and that changes everything. >> i have seen the pictures of the syrian refugees washing up on the shores of europe and i didn't see us responding to that. >> thank you. always good to see you. police in sweden are investigatiing what may be a terror attack. someone drove a truck in a crowded street in the swedish capital. at least two were killed and

messages. psychologist and cbs news contributor lisa demora writes about this in her latest online article. is snooping on teenagers ever okay? lisa is also the author of "untangled, guiding teenage girl through the seven transitions into adulthood." lisa, good morning. >> good morning. >> so are there some instances where it's okay to snoop? >> well, first let's say what snooping is. right? it's monitoring without telling them you're monitoring. so it's going on under the table. so already we are starting to have questions of trust. so we want to be really careful if we think about snooping. because when parents do it, we have research showing that it does harm the relationship with their kids. >> so how -- >> not if they don't know you're snooping. >> here's what's interesting. you have to be really good about it and what do you do if you find something? then -- >> hello, my name is gayle i'm a
snooper. most of the stuff i found was quite boring. >> well, that's a really -- >> don't you feel a little bit guilty? >> maybe a nano second. maybe. >> but let's start with that. teenagers want privacy for its own sake. just because a teenager wants privacy doesn't mean they're up to something. i think it's important for parents to remember that. >> yeah. you're right. >> any other way to accomplish the interests of the parents without snooping? >> absolutely. the research says they should just ask. we have research showing that teenagers do expect to share information with their parents, especially around health and safety. we also know that teenagers share more information with parents that they feel accept them and trust them. so if parents say, look, this is not about you getting in trouble. this is not about me getting mad, this is about you being okay. >> you can tell me is anything. >> chances are they'll get an above board response they can work with. >> we have been talking all morning promoting your -- the
legal issues with snooping. >> they're very murky. but you do have a right to spy on your own child. that does not always extend to the right to spy on other people's kids. if you're monitoring a conversation that could easily happen. >> what are the legal issues? >> you know, it gets tricky fast, but i think parents just want to be mindful that they may actually end up monitoring a conversation about somebody else's kid. or involving somebody else's kid and not all parents may be okay with their child being spied z on. >> okay. i think it's important to point out, snooping comes from a protective and loving space. >> yeah. it starts from a loving space. another thing interesting in the research, parents who snoop don't have -- misbehaving more. we find that out too. >> lisa's book is called "untangled" out in paper back right now. hit drama "homeland" is heating up for the sixth finale.

this is a cbs news special report. the united states senate the united states senate has just confirmed neil gorsuch to be the next associate justice of the supreme court. the vote tabulated moment ago was 54 in favor, 45 against. the seat has been vacant for a record 419 days, since antonin scalia died suddenly. it got caught up in politics with republicans refusing to consider president obama's
nomination of merrick garland. payback came this week when the minority dried attempted to block the gorsuch nomination with a filibuster. the republicans didn't have the 60 votes to cut it off so they changed the rules of the senate. they stopped it with a simple majority vote. so neil gorsuch a 49-year-old conservative from the federal appeals court in denver will take his place on the highest court in the land bringing it back to full strength and restoring the conservative majority. jan crawford is our legal correspondent. >> reporter: it won't change the balance of the supreme court. he of course will be replacing the most conservative justice. so unless he drifts to the left it will remain divided 5-4 with conservative justices having the edge but this fight over his confirmation will have long lasting consequences because a republican victory would end filibusters of supreme court nominees will make it easier
for the white house to get the next justice confirmed. that's why many people expected democrats to keep their powder dry in this fight to save the filibuster for the next vacancy. justice anthony kennedy is widely expected to retire in the next year or two. he is a more moderate conservative. he casts decisive votes with liberals on social issues like abortion and same-sex marriage and so if president trump nominates someone to replace him who is more conservative which is certain, that would change the direction of the court moving it further to the right and democrats will have no way to stop it. >> jan crawford our chief legal correspondent with some insight. jan, thank you very much. judge gorsuch did not generate very much controversy in terms of his legal mind. he is widely respected. our chief washington correspondent john dickerson is in with us this morning. morning. john? >> well, scott, when you talk >> when you talk to republican voters during the campaign it came up again and again.
the supreme court. if president trump has had a bumpy start to his presidency this is one thing republicans constantly turn to. here the president names who they like and it's come to fruition. the president has bumped into the courts and congress but in the last 24 hours you see how powerful the presidency still is. his nominee to the supreme court will go on to the court and ordered the strike in syria. so still quite a powerful office. one other political moment here is mitch mcconnell this is the ends of a strategy he put in place hours after news of antonin scalia's death and didn't even know who the president would be but held firm
