the president-elect is making good on a campaign promise to keep jobs from leaving the country. dean reynolds has more from indianapolis. >> reporter: it was one of donald trump's sure-fire applause lines: >> companies like carrier, simply fire their workers, and move their operations to mexico. guess what? anymore. >> reporter: and to prove that point, trump and vice president- elect mike pence will be here tomorrow when carrier announces it will not be moving as much manpower to mexico, saving about 1,000 american jobs. what's your reaction to this news? >> i'm still in shock, really that mr. trump was able to actually put his words into actions. >> reporter: t.j. bray is a trump-supporting union member who's worked at carrier for 14 years. union workers--

the regime has retaken much of the east from rebels. civilians are caught in the middle. debora patta reports from syria. >> reporter: this is what the aftermath of an artillery strike sounds like as the syrian military continues the assault on the rebel-held parts of aleppo. dozens of people were killed in this attack. grief hangs in the air. this teenaged boy just lost his mother in the strike. "one of my sisters was pulled out alive," he said. "but i don't know about the other." he is one of tens of thousands of civilians caught in the cross-fire as the syrian army continues to advance. they face an impossible choice-- to stay means facing a daily barrage of bombs. but to run can be just as deadly. this woman died in the street with a backpack on her shoulders. those who managed to escape are being housed in makeshift
3:14 am

3:16 am
humane care and custody and will continue to be so. >> reporter: there will not be torture at guantanamo? >> i am confident there will not be torture at guantanamo. >> reporter: 21 of the remaining detainees have been cleared for release to other countries, but that leaves some of the most dangerous people still at guantanamo. the obama administration's plan for those risky prisoners, like 9/11 mastermind khaled sheikh mohammed, was to transfer them to high-security prisons in the u.s., but the republican-led congress blocked it. thornberry: >> the fear is they will be a magnet for other terrorists to come and either try to break them out or just to punish the communities. >> reporter: lee wolosky, the administration's envoy for closing guantanamo, disagrees. >> we have consistently housed dangerous terrorists in our federal prison system without incident. >> reporter: the administration estimates it will soon cost $10 million per year per guantanamo
