7:05 am
information. david -- >> reporter: we can confirm that there were some fatalityiesfatalities. we don't know exactly how many. the u.s. navy is confirming some fatalities. this question of how the shooter got in is a good one because i've been to the navy yard many times. you have to pass security at the front gate to get onto the base. then you have to go through security when you enter each of the buildings. this gunman either forced his way past or had some kind of identification that allowed him to get past these various check points. >> this is from david. do they think they know where he is even though it's not con confirmed? >> he is said to be barricaded in one of the rooms. i do not have that from the

7:11 am
the car. >> wesley screamed her name and dove into the water after her. he saved her, grabbed her, got her up. the current was too much. it was going 50 miles per hour. they all just got swept away. he did everything that he could. he would have done the same for me or nathan too. he was that selfless of a person. >> reporter: a firefighter rescued nathan downstream. three hours later, emily was rescue ed from the car. >> people come into each other's lives for a reason. what do you think you took away from the lives they led? >> i know that wesley forever shaped me as a person and changed my life. he taught me to be comfortable with myself. i love him so much and love her so much too. >> can you believe you're alive and able to tell what happened?
7:12 am
>> no. i don't believe it everyday i wake up now. >> it's devastating to know i'll never see them smile again or hold their hand or kiss their cheek again. >> reporter: last night's vigil was for the public. the families will hold private service this is week. charlie and norah. >> thank you. the worst of the rain may be over for the flood soaked area. today's forecast calls for showers and drizzle. flood warnings and watches remain posted for northeast colorado. now to dramatic developments in the syrian crisis. the panel says this morning it's investigation 14 suspected chemical weapon attacks. inspectors say there's convincing evidence chemical weapons were used in last month's attack near damascus. >> secretary of state john kerry is briefing allies on agreement to end syria's chemical weapon program. margaret brennan is traveling with the secretary and with us from paris.

patron iran. >> reporter: later today, that report from the u.n. team that investigated the august gas attack is expected to show chemical weapons were used. it won't place blame for the attack but will indicate who had the about to deploy them. that's expected to help build momentum for the resolution that will be proposed today at the security council to take action. >> summers is out of the running to become chair of the federal reserve. summers was considered the front runner to replace. that paves the way for the president to make a historic choice. bill is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning charlie and norah. >> reporter: the summers nomination was done in by fellow democrats. three democrats have come out now opposing the nomination. that means it probably would not have gotten out of committee. summers got the word or figured it out. he was seen as the front runner, the president's favorite.
7:16 am
the president defended him last month against criticism. a lot of democrats did not like his support of deregulation which they think helped bring on the financial crisis. summers was seen as an abracive personality. all that led to a campaign inside the democrat oirk party. one side favored summers, the other calls for the nomination of janet yellen. she would be the first female chair of the fed. she's currently vice chair. she's seen as favors the stimulant policies the administration used in the wake of the financial crisis. she's supported by a lot of fellow economists. the public campaign on her half and other side for summers obviously angered the president. he says he's still looking at several candidates. >> bill i want to ask about another issue this morning. the president said over the weekend he personally reached out to the new iran yoon president, exchanged letters.

7:18 am
accountability review board thomas pickering told bob that investigators didn't need to interview secretary of state hillary clinton or her top deputies. >> do you think in retro spect it might have been a good idea? >> we questioned people that attended meetings with her. >> reporter: that decision to skip indepth interviews is sited as evidence of confidential evidence. the report says state department under secretary patrick kennedy supervised selection of the arb staff even as his own role was part of the question. congressional investigators were told kennedy tiezed the security guidelines that proposed security challenges and sent hoenl the specialized military security team that ambassador
7:19 am
stefbs and his staff was asked to keep in libya. arb blames four of kennedy's sub board gnats. those employees sometimes have little to no responsibility for those investigations. >> we believe in fact that while he made a significant decision to keep the post open he was not a security specialist. he was not engaged in a daily review of the decision making that took place that we felt in some cases was seriously flawed. >> reporter: congressional democrats in the state department defend the arb as one of the most comprehensive reviews in history. the lead democrat on the oversight committee, cummings said economists have the investigations. the flight will continue this week when pickering is set to testify before

-- no information that indicates this is a terrorist attack. but that statement was made last week by the lead ever 6 of al qaeda. >> stay with us david. go to bob orr in washington. bob? >> good morning, charlie. david talks about the possibility of a second gunman. this is really the most pressing question right now for authorities. the way they describe this to me is they say one gunman who they clearly identified has been in their words quote/unquote, neutralized. we don't know whether neutralized means shot and killed or wounded or barricaded but isolated. it's not really clear. one gunman suffice it to say is no longer a threat. what david's referring to is now an exhaustive search through a very big complex that's in lockdown, because there are some reports of a possible second gunman although the officials i'm talking to say that's not yet been corroborated. in some ways it's a very bad situation because you don't know if you're actually looking for someone or if you're chasing a
7:34 am
ghost. so this is an open question and it's why the security situation remains as tight as it is right now. i've been told in terms of numbers, as many as ten possibly more people hit as david said from navy authorities and military authorities, at least three fatalities. still very fluid situation. it is notable to this point that the metropolitan police department is still in law enforcement parlance in the lead. and the federal investigators, and the fbi, atf and others are behind the local police. that's significant in terms of a body language. if though, as david points out, the possibility this is an attack, if that comes to be fully understood as happening, then you'll see the federal government switch on a dime here to take the lead charlie. >> thank you bob. stay with us as we go now to john miller sitting at the desk who's been talking to his sources in washington. >> as bob pointed out this is very fluid. we've gone from the idea that we had one gunman who was dead to one gunman who might be
7:35 am
barricaded to two and then possibly three gunmen. what we're seeing here is what happens in these incidents which is a lot of people get there, a lot of transmissions go out over the radio people call 911, there are sightings here and sightings there. it's hard to get the time line straight as it unfolds. so this is typical. as best we can tell right now, there was a gunman there was a security guard issue, a security guard among those wounded we are told, that could suggest that he shot his way onto the base through the gate opened fire on people outside buildings, inside a building and was believed to be contained to one building. that search we are told, is still continuing. so this is very fluid. as far the lead agency, it's tactical. and that means getting the gunman, getting someone in custody and making sure there's not another. that's why mpd and their s.w.a.t. elements are in the lead. in the end, the investigation, because it happened on a federal base, will revert to an fbi and

ncis, the naval criminal investigative service lead but that's after they figure out what they've done on the ground. >> this is the u.s. navy yard. there is already a lot of security to get in to this facility. in fact, as i recall i believe multiple checkpoints to get in. what's key here i imagine, is is this a disgruntled worker, or is this a coordinated attack? >> that is the key question. and once they identify the gunman they'll have a lot of visibility to this. you heard what dave martin said. but a lot of the time these things are disgruntled workers so it's too early to tell. >> thank you john. again, authorities say they have contained, but not captured a gunman who shot at least ten people this morning at the washington navy yard. between three and four people are dead and the number may rise. a second gunman could also be involved. >> our coverage will continue throughout the day on this cbs station. and tonight on the cbs evening news with scott pelley. viewers in the west will return now to cbs this morning.

8:04 am
interview that he and house speaker john boehner should be talking about the budget right now. >> i'm happy to have a conversation with him about how we could deal with the so-called sequester, which is making across-the-board cuts on stuff that we shouldn't be cut, while continuing tax breaks, for example, for companies that are not helping to grow the economy. there are ways of doing this. it's just that they haven't been willing to negotiate in a serious way on that. what i haven't been willing to negotiate and i will not negotiate is on the debt ceiling. >> but the president's also getting stat fricke congressional democrats, and that resistance may have just cost the president his top pick to run the federal reserve. cbs news analyst and republican strategist frank luntz is here. frank, good morning. >> good morning. it is chaos in washington. at a time when the americans are hoping that the economy is on the right track, they look at their political leaders, they question their business leaders, and we see all-time lows in terms of trust, confidence and credibility among the institutions that are supposed
8:05 am
to lead us. >> why is it happening? do you think it all has to do with the word stability? is it just a complicated process now? >> i don't think it helps when a vice president uses the word ne an der that will to describe his opponents or the senate majority leader talks about anarchists in the other party. we've had these battles in the 240 years of american democracy, but we've never had it with social media, we've never had it with twitter. and as i speak now, and you ask me questions, people are tweeting in the most angry, aggressive way possible and so these elected officials hear from their constituents at home more than they've ever heard before, but they tend to hear from the most angry, the most partisan, the most divided, and that doesn't encourage common ground. it actually destroys it. and by the way, the consequences of this are significant. you want to talk to me today about politics. i want to talk to you about schools and education and what this means in the classroom. in the polling that i've done with teacher they say that the kids at a younger and younger
8:06 am
age are uncivil and are rude to each other and talk back to the teacher. and the teachers talk to the parents, they find that same kind of attitude. i think it's coming from television. i think it's coming from politics, from the lack of people being willing to talk and more importantly listen. >> is it coming from television frank, or is television just reflecting what is? >> well, when politics can't sit down in a room together and have these kinds of conversations -- reagan did it. i hate referring back to the past because it seems, like cheap. but ronald reagan and tip o'neill did fundamentally disagree on virtually every issue, yet they could come together and get these negotiations done and actually solve the problems facing the country in the 1980s and they were pretty tough times. >> without destroying each other. >> whose responsibility is it to get it started, stability and dialogue and communication? is it the president? republican congressional leaders? >> it's all of them. >> somebody has to start it and

the hostility came from the rank and file. you have those in washington occasionally agreeing against the other 99% of america who wonder what is's going on in washington. the traditional lines are breaking down. the communication lines are already ploekbroken. we have three weeks to s tos to solve it and i don't see a solution in the next three weeks. ? thank you, frank. back to our breaking story. authorities in washington, d.c. say at least four people are dead this morning. they were shot and killed at a military base in the capitol. >> six others are wounded after the attack at the washington navy yard. police are searching for a possible second shooter at the scene. chip reid is there. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, norah, charlie, and gayle. this is the scene. let me give you the lay of the land here. i'm not sure how much you can see. we're about to have a press conference here. the cameras are gathering around. but i have counted more than 100 emergency vehicles down here. not sure you can see the building down there, the white brick building way down there is the entrance to the navy yard.
8:09 am
and that is where this occurred. it is still not clear exactly how many shooters. there have been reports of anywhere from one to three. there has also been a report that it's only one person who has been contained in a particular area. but four fatalityies we hear at this point and somewhere around ten people shot. now, one reason we're not getting information from inside that building is that when people go to work there they are prohibited from taking their cell phones inside. usually we get people calling us when they are hiding protecting themselves on site which is what's happening there, but we are not getting those calls. a lot of silence coming from that building. still a lot to learn. again, a very chaotic situation, and emergency vehicles continue to arrive and periodically ambulances leave to a variety of hospitals in the area. so we are going to stay here with this until -- now you can see pretty clearly. >> that was chip reid reporting live in washington. as you know there is a shooting
8:10 am
at the u.s. navy yard. chip is covering it live. we'll go back to him as soon as we have new information for you. two men are recovering in a south florida hospital this morning after surviving an ordeal on the open sea. they were strand aid top their capsized boat in the atlantic ocean with no food no water for more than a week. as terrell brown reports, their rescue was both dramatic and very lucky. >> reporter: the two were adrift and running out of time when a cargo ship spotted them clinging to an overturned boat and called for help. >> when we first saw them we had no idea how long they'd been out there. it wasn't until moments later when we'd gotten the word that they, in fact, had been out there for eight days in that situation. >> reporter: a coast guard rescue team found the bahamian boaters stranded in the middle of the gulf stream approximately 30 miles offshore between florida and the bahamas. >> once we got out there, we ended up lowering our rescue swimmer. >> i swam over and you could see they were excited. they definitely were on their last ray of hope.
8:11 am
they were ready to get off that boat. >> reporter: he said they were hypothermic and severely dehydrated. >> you could see it in their skin, see it in their eyes see it in their hands. >> reporter: using a rescue basket, the crew hoisted the two survivors onto the chopper overhead. >> one gentleman was saying his prayers, crying. >> i actually leaned moifr shoulder, got a look back and kind of got one of those acknowledging head nods that everybody knows is thank you, i appreciate your help. >> reporter: the crew airlifted the men to a florida hospital and very likely saved their lives. >> it's what we train for. it's what we do. it's why i joined the coast guard, why we all joined the coast guard. >> reporter: u.s. customs and border protection tell cbs the pair was not attempting to enter the u.s. illegally and will have help getting home to the bahamas once they are well. for "cbs this morning," terrell brown, new york. >> you bet they were happy. >> they will have a story to tell. >> that is one thing i never want to be is stranded on a boat for a week. >> you and everybody else. >> upside down especially. >> you're

8:33 am
hurdles. they'll rolled the ship off the reef she was stuck on and she's beginning to come up slowly to the vertical. there's a bit of a graphic sequence here that we can show you, show you how this parbuckling technique works. they've strun a series of chains up the hull and on the side and they're applying tension to those chain, dragging the ship upright. also they've attached steel boxes on the high side as well. they'll be filled with seawater to add weight to the grarchty to bring the ship upright as well. the ship is here of course because of what authorities say is human folly. last january, a year a ago january, she was driven too close to this very pretty island of giglio. hit the rocks. there were more than 4,000 people on board. 32, as you said, died. there are still two bodies missing, by the way, and they're hoping to perhaps find remains once the ship can be inspected again. the captain of the ship a man
8:34 am
named francesco schettino is being trietd in an italian court. the operation continues. it probably has another six or eight hours to run. slowly but surely the "costa concordia" is coming upright. >> all right. mark, thank you. and ship inspections are the very first topic of business this morning at a convention of travel agents in miami. those agents face troubles of their own thanks to do-it-yourself online bookings. sherese, good morning. >> good morning. >> there are lots of travel websites out there. there are all these apps now. are travel agents still necessary? >> absolutely. i mean the number of travel agencies has declined from about 23,000 a decade ago to about 13,000 now. i mean the recession really took a toll. a lot of people weren't traveling for business or pleasure and people like to book on the internet, but for those who survive, they still serve a vie tall purpose and people who use them think they provide a
8:35 am
necessary purpose. >> what is that purpose? >> they're great in an emergency, if your flight gets canceled you're overseas and you need a last-minute hotel room, it's great to be able to call. there was a couple in turkey on a cruise ship and the couple broke his hip. they went to a local medical facility that wasn't that good they didn't speak even glish. they called their travel agent in the united states. she found a local tour guide who donated blood for the husband and sent him to a hospital in istanbul. >> we cover thad story on "cbs this morning." >> right. i saw that. >> i'm glad you were watching. this is a thing that i think is helpful about travel agents. inmost cases they've been more places than you have. a lot of times sherese, it may surprise you, the pictures doan look the same when you get there. so the travel agent can sort of sort all of that out for you. >> absolutely. they can tailor to your budget and need. >> but travel agents get paid on
8:36 am
a commission. how do you know they're not sometimes trying to give you a service to get a hire commission and i swear by agents so it's not a knock. >> they only get commission from airlines and tours. you can go to that same internet and go to the social media network and badmouth them. they want you as a client and more clients so it would behoove them to do best by you. >> i'd like a travel ajejt who would hold a plane for me. >> this is a sore subject right now, sherese. i could go on. charlie, i didn't want them to hold the plane because it's gayle king cbs news. let me tell you. i don't fault the airline for bad weather. i don't fault the airline for bad weather. >> really. >> no, i don't. but when you miss a connection
8:37 am
because the weather has delayed you and you get to atlanta and it's the last flight out of the evening and it's me and three other people the last flight out and the plane is still there, sherese, the door is closed. >> they know you're coming. >> and we call and say we're rushing down we're doing the o.j. move. the plane is still there and she says, i'm sorry, you'll have to get on something else we'll help you in the morning. is that fair? >> it may not be fair but that's when you need a travel agent who can get yu that hotel room or get you another flight. >> okay. way to get it full sir cull. >> you need peter or paul. >> it starts with a "d." that's all i'm going to say. it was very traumatic, very upsetting. but you're right. that's when you need a travel agent. >> if i had been flying that plane, you would have been on it. >> thank you, sherese jones. good to see you. she combines the skills of a gymnast and her love of acting.
