7:03 am
captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning norah. good to be back. >> good to have you back charlie. a lot of news this morning. intelligence officials are interrogating a suspected al qaeda leader this morning after 15 years on the run, american special forces captured the suspect in the bombings of two american embassies in africa. the operation one of two over the weekend in libya and somalia. >> libya's government is complaining u.s. forces kidnapped the suspects. secretary of state john kerry said this morning the raid followed u.s. law. david martin is at the pentagon this morning. good morning. >> good morning. there are no reports of u.s. casualties in either of the operations which is remarkable. they were both high risk putting american boots on the ground in populated areas. early saturday morning in front of this house in the downtown area of libya's capital tripoli
7:04 am
delta force commanders surrounded the car smashed in windows and carried him away. he'll stand trial for bombings in africa. traveling abroad secretary of state john kerry defended the operations. >> united states of america is going to do everything in it's power that's legal and appropriate in order to enforce the law and protect our security. >> a second raid along the coast of southern somalia was underway early saturday morning. united states navy seals tried to apprehend the leader of al shabaab, the terrorist group responsible for the attack at a nearby shopping mall in nairobi. a man linked to the embassy bombings. seals got caught in a fire fight and or forced to withdraw. it's unclear if he was ill cankilled or
7:05 am
wounded. the united states will continue to maintain relentless pressure on terrorist groups that threaten our people or our interests. >> now he's on board a united states navy shib where he's interrogated by u.s. counter experts. after that he is expected to be transferred to new york city where he would stand trial for his role in the embassy bombings. >> thank you. john miller is former fbi assistant derek tomorrow. good morning. >> good morning. how significant is the capture? >> significant in two ways. he's a former al qaeda leader. he may have information about what's going on in command now and also may have intelligence of what's going on in the al qaeda affiliates in libya. why is that so important? if you look at benghazi and groups that are extensions of al kierksd responsible for the attack that killed the
7:06 am
ambassador. that's the potential place in mind. the real important part is push the intelligence aside. he's wanted for murder of 225 people and destruction august 7, 1998. that's something they have vowed to track down everyone involved with no matter where in the world. >> al-libi has been on the fbi most want list two decades. what do they hope to learn from this? do they think this is an intelligence gold mine? >> it could be. they're use high value interrogation groups offshore on a ship. they're going to transfer him. this is a mixture of dod, cia, fbi trained specifically as experts what they're look into and arts of interrogation. >> then there's somalia. what happened? >> this is one of those -- now
7:07 am
we're into in both cases, covert action. intelligence community and military special operations people get together. this is a classic navy seal operation coming in off the water onto the beach to hit this villa where the leader is. the suggestion is either the intelligence was flawed meaning more bad guys that they ended up confronting than they expected or part of what we're hearing this morn is that they ran into somebody that spotted them early on. they had to shoot that person. that attracted attention before they expected to get attention. the violence of action is the monday tra of the navy seals. when you lose either or both you damage the third thing. that means go to plan b or c. >> this is navy seals teams. how is it that they weren't able to capture or kill the target they wanted and were outnumbered
7:08 am
by a rag pag group al shabaab? >> a rag tag group is always until there's a couple hundred of them. sounds like they were forced with overwhelming force. the idea was let's get in get out. we can do this another day a different way. >> with no casualties. thank you. >> we enter the seventh day of the partial federal government shutdown. a serious site looms over the debt limit on october 17th. the country won't be able to pay bills until congress acts. house speaker boehner is double down on his position. nancy is on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. house boehner's conditions for reopening the government appeared to broaden over the weekend. he said republicans want negotiations over the health care law and spending cuts and spending reduction as well. those are conversations the two sides have been having for years up here without much success.
7:09 am
the top republican in congress says he wants another round of negotiations before any vote to reopen the government. >> the american people expect in washington when we have the crisis like this that leaders will sit down and have a conversation. >> reporter: democrats who blame boehner for the shutdown are deering him to hold the vote on the no strings attached agreement. >> put it on the floor monday or tuesday. i bet there are votes to pass it. >> reporter: boehner insists that's not the case so the impasse continues with the the obama administration and democrats saying they won't negotiate. >> i don't think it's fair to say there's no reasonableness on the democratic side. what we've seen is demands. unless i get my way to bring terrible consequences of shutdown or default. >> with 800,000 workers furloughed and rest working without pay, king argued his party should not have wrused the
7:10 am
slud to delay the health care law. >> this is a strategy that never could have worked. this is notification to shut down the government if we don't defund a law we don't like. we should repeal it. >> eight peers the health care law with spending cuts westbound political wedges over the debt limit. boehner won't hold the vote to raise the debt limit without the concessions. without a vote in ten days u.s. treasury says it will run out of money to pay the nation's bills. >> the president has refused to talk which is resulting in a possible default of our debt. >> when is this going to end? >> if i knew i'd tell you. >> the treasury department has warned the economic consequences of default could be catastrophic. there's one piece of good news for federal workers. over the weekend the house voted 407 to nothing to give them back pay once the government reopens. the senate is expected to take
7:11 am
up that bill as early as today. >> nancy, thank you. john dickerson is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> so we heard speaker john boehner say he doesn't have the vote to fund the clean bill. is that true? >> basically boehner is not holding the vote. he wants to use the vote as leverage to get spending concessions out of the white house. he suggested it was a certainty that a vote would fail because the president is the the obstacle. the white house says hold the vote. let's see. news organizations have tallied republicans willing to vote on a funding mechanism or fund the government with nothing atachd. boehner is not going to do that. >> spending beyond obama care? >> right. >> this politically makes sense. so far the original republican gamut was to call for the total lack of funding or remove all
7:12 am
funding of obama care to keep the government open two months. that's a political loser. better ground to fight on is idea of tying spending reductions to raising the debt limit. that holds favorably for republicans. he's trying to move to that turf. the white house says we're not going to deal with you at all. >> in terms of the spin of all this, is the fact the president says i'm not going to negotiate until you pass the continuing resolution and agree to raising the debt krooeling and then we'll talk about it. who wins? >> right now the president is in better shape on that. particularly when on the question of defunding obama care. people have shown in polls they don't like defunding the government. should there be spending reductions in addition to raising the debt limit? the president is on weaker ground. where we are now though how do you find a way out of this? there's a template. january 2013 the house did vote
7:13 am
to raise the debt limit with no strings ach at thatted. the side agreement was senate would vote an i budget. it was a side agreement to allow the clean debt limit vote to go forward. there's a chance you could see that agreement coming out at some point. >> do you think the side deal will ultimately be the president giving ground on enentitlement? >> yes. if the side deal is not strong enough and doesn't contain real pieces to negotiate on tax reform, a lot of boehner's conservatives won't go for it. it's crafting that side deal that's legitimate that will allow this kind of compromise to come about. that's a long way off. >> the bottom line on the debt ceiling, that's a very thing. >> very serious thing. >> good to have you. five egyptian soldiers were shot and killed east of cairo.

7:31 am
new york city. well, we now know at least three off-duty police officers say they were part of that motorcycle group last weekend. michelle miller is with us. good morning. >> good morning. well, police arrested two of the allege aid sail aunts over the weekend an more arrests could be on the way and we learned the morning that the suspect at the center of the case reginald chance, already has 21 prior arrests on his record including robbery and drug charges. police say the person seen pulling the range rover's door open is this man, 35-year-old robert simms of brooklyn and they say the man who later slammed his helmet against the driver's side window is reginald chance, 37 also from brooklyn. chance's lawyers say his client overreacted and broke the window but denied taking part in the beating. >> if you look at the video you will see my client immediately after smashing the window returning to his bicycle and
7:32 am
there are still photographers in the potion of the attorney. >> both have been charged with gang assault and other felonies. simms according to court documents stomped on the head and body of alexian lien. an unknown attacker tried to yank the wife and 2-year-old daughter out of the vehicle. >> i heard a lot of people screaming and telling the man, no not at the woman, not the woman. this is a child. this is a child. >> sergio consuegra was late to church when he saw the men hitting the man with the helmet. >> you saw it. >> real hard. real hard. that's when i stepped in. i said that's it. there was more coming. said that's it, guy. let it go. let it go. >> at least three off-duty new
7:33 am
york police officers now admit to being in the motorcycle rally. one who admits he was working undercover saw the attack but fearful of revealing his identity did not the inner veen. >> were you surprised to hear there were police officers on the scene and did nothing? >> i'm shocked. it mademy angry made me sad that -- you know knowing that could be avoided. >> this morning police released pictures of two more persons of interest. they also continue to scour the video for clues about the other assail laments. as for the motorcyclist who took the video, kevin breslov, he is cooperating with police and is not considered a suspect. the undercover officer waited several days before coming forward and it's unclear if the
7:34 am
others were witness. they'll be stripped of their guns and badges ss pending investigation. >> john miller is with us. what do you know about this? you know the police inside and out. >> there's a few things going on here. first on wednesday of last week the understood cover detective said i was there, i saw the beating, i didn't want to break my cover. he's assigned to the intelligence division and under training they're not to admit. he would circulate v been in a lot less trouble if he came in the first day instead of four days later. now this is what's happening. they readering in the paper and learning that a police officer has come forward. two other police officers who were a also riding with the group that day. one of them was a sergeant. that's a supervisor and a
7:35 am
detective detective undercover in internal affairs. they're goimgs to be sat down and said where were you, what did you see, what did you do what did you not do why did you wait to come forward. >> i mean, john what enthis story broke i asked you where were the cops and now we found out there were cops there who didn't stop this. why? >> well, i mean we know of one who was there at the initial beating, but these other officers, one of the ones that's come forward said after the guy got run over by the suv, i wasn't there for the rest of it. so we'll have to sort through their stories. but certainly they're going -- here's the problem they're going to face, which is whatever they did or didn't do that day is one issue but not coming forward right away could rise to official misconduct.
7:36 am
that's a potential criminal charge. >> that's my exact question. >> that's the outer edge of it. they're going to be placed on modified assignments after their stories are weighed. they could be suspended. this could be grounds for dismissal, especially if the -- this is the d.a.'s call. if the district attorney says that rises to misconduct everybody knew this going forward and they needed the information and these guys needed that. that could be a violation of law. >> one of the guys arrested reginald chance has 21 prior arrests for charges from drugs to robbery to gun possession and yet he was out on the streets. >> so all but three of those 21 are sealed records in the system and most of those are a long string of narcotics arrests. so the idea that people who ride in motorcycle gangs or involved in criminal drugs is not
7:37 am
strange. the idea they're riding with police officers is a bit of a head turner. >> is there likely to be -- >> you know, i think before -- that should happen and it shouldn't have to happen. i mean once they took that oath they should understand that already. thing what you're going to see is the police commissioner step forward and say we're going to change the rules about what groups you can be a part of and what groups you can be a part of because this with as really bad example. >> thank you. and captain sully sullenberger is out this morning with an opinion piece in the"the wall street journal". he writes about giving pilots longer rest shifts. it caps the amount of time pilots can fly over a 28-day period. but there was one big exception for the pilots of cargo planes. sully joins us from san francisco this morning. good morning. >> good morning norah. hi charlie. >> good morning. >> so good news for kmernl piecommercial
7:38 am
pilots. but you say this exemption for cargo pilots is very dafrmgs. >> fatigue is fatigue whether you're carrying passengers or people. while it improves the safety for passenger flights but it does nothing for cargo flights. they're the most vulnerable to fa teak. you wouldn't have want your surgeon operating on your after only five hours of sleep or your passenger pilot flying after only five hours of sleep and you certainly wouldn't want a cargo pilot flying over your house in the middle of the night trying to find the airport. >> it seems so obvious. how was this made? >> they're trying to make economic arguments about an important safety issue and i think the faa in its calculation greatly underestimated the harm
7:39 am
that could be done due to large crash. one recent example was the 1993 crash in amsterdam of a boeing 737, killed people. >> we cover thad plaerngs ups plane that was trying to land in alabama. it ended up hitting a field and two pilots died. what if it crashed in a city? >> it could have been catastrophic. it's a tragedy that the two pilots died but it could have been much worse and while we don't know yet how much involvement fatigue played i'm sure investigators are looking at all the factors. this certainly affects it. >> i get the sense you're outraged by this and the safety considerations ought to be and
7:40 am
you want dodd speak out. >> yes. the original title is one level of safety. it should be true no matter what we're talking about. fatigue is fatigue. >> captain sully sullenberger. good to see you. thanks so much for joining us. here's one sully probably never faced achlt child sneaking aboard a flight to las vegas. that's right. you'll see how his luck ran out next on "cbs this morning."

8:03 am
negotiations before any vote to reopen the government. >> the american people expect in washington when they have a crisis like this that the leaders will sit down and have a conversation. >> reporter: but democrats who blame speaker boehner for the shutdown are gearing him to hold a vote on a no strings attached agreement. >> i would bet there are the votes to pass it. >> boehner insists that's not the case but impasse continues. >> i don't think it's fair to say that there's no reasonableness on the democratic side. what we have seen is dee mand unless i get my way, you know, we'll bring terrible consequences of shutdown or default. >> reporter: without a vote in the next ten days the u.s. treasury says it will run out of money to pay the nation's bills. over the weekend the house voted unanimously to give federal workers back pay when the government reopens. democrats said all the more reason to reopen the government right away so that workers do the work that they're paid for.

8:06 am
particular office as well as terrible management by social security itself in terms of its own rules and its own guidelines. the other thing we found is that the people inside the social security office, not the judges but the people actually making determinations do a pretty good job. but that is totally ignored by the aljs and the trial bar when, in fact, they go to try to secure somebody, disability when, in fact, they ear not disabled. >> this fraud and collusion you talk about, what's the cost to taxpayers? >> i think this one judge we looked at assigned over $5 billion worth of claims -- >> wow. >> -- just in the last four or five years. and we don't know which one of those might have been real versus not. what we do know is this one judge, it appears, didn't actually look at the cases and just decided them on the record without hearing the testimony
8:07 am
from either the attorney the individual or social security or reading actually the full file on the individual's claim. >> senator, last night on "60 minutes" you said we have so many scalawags in the system. i hadn't heard that word in a very long time. we have so many scalawags in the system that people who really need the help will not be able to get it, that we will run out of money. what can we do to prevent this from happening? >> there are a couple things. first of all, the problems are acute. probably in less than 18 mos, the social security system will run out of money and that means the people who are truly disabled will take a significant cut in the disability payments that they get today. so i think that's one. one is continuing disability review which the social security system has failed at. they send you a postcard and ask are you continually disabled and of course anybody that's getting a good-sized check is going to say yes rather than no. so there's no real organized
8:08 am
effort to take people off of disability once their injury has resolved. >> senator, i want to turn now to the government shutdown. you have said that you thought that your fellow republicans would fold like hot cakes seven or eight days into the shutdown. today makes -- marks day seven. what do you say to your fellow republicans? >> well, i didn't say that. what i said was is they e eventually would fold like hot cakes. i didn't say seven or eight days. what i said was as soon as the pressure from outside, the pressure will become so great that a compromise will happen. >> and where are we now? >> and i believe that -- we're not because nobody's talking. look, the debt ceiling and the cr are the same thing. there is no such thing as a debt ceiling in this country because it's never been not increased. and that's why we're $17 trillion in debt. and i would dispel the rumor that is going around that you hear on every newscast that if we don't raise the debt ceiling
8:09 am
we will default on our debt. we won't. we'll continue to pay our interest. we'll continue to redeem bonds, and we'll issue new bonds to replace those. so it's not entirely accurate. what we need to do is have a discussion. here's a great example. the social security disability system, we need to fix it. nobody wants to fix it. nobody wantses to fix the fraud in medicare. we have a new program coming out, the affordable care act, otherwise known as obama care, and there's no income verification at all. so we know that's going to get defrauded to the tunes of billions and billions of dollars. so why would we continue to do the same thing that put us in the trouble that we're in? >> that is the question many people are asking senator. we veal to leave it there.

8:20 am
i've been looking at this model for seven years now. >> reporter: unlike other moguls on the strip nazarian will own and operate all 20 restaurants and nightclubs under its roof. nothing is farmed out, meaning he keeps all the money. >> this is las vegas, where nighttime is truly fun time. >> reporter: it's a business strategy that reflects how much vegas has changed. historically, gambling provided about 70% of a property's revenue. hotel rooms, food alcohol, and entertainment made up the rest. today at many properties it's basically reversed. booze is as big as blackjack, and deejays and multimillion-dollar megaclubs are the new stars of the strip. nazarian's hyde nightclub overlooking the famed fountain at the bellagio had nearly $35 million in revenue last year. it's an offshoot of his night life empire that began in los angeles with one club in 2003. he is now the biggest night life
8:21 am
operator west of the mississippi. what's the shelf life of a club? >> in the major cities the shelf life of a club has been 36 to 40 months. because everybody wants to go to the next great place. you're also forced to manage a business that only works three or four nights a week for three hours. >> reporter: sona zairean is rapidly expanding his company. sbe, short for sammy boy entertainment. by 2016 they plan to have 30 nightclubs and 120 restaurants all over the world. he's building his sls hotels from miami to mumbai. he wants 20-something club kids to become his lifelong customers. >> as a customer you can grow with us, you can come in at any level, and we have product that will be relevant to you and product that you can aford. kind of grows like this. >> reporter: his business is about constant reinvention. a lesson nazarian learned at an

8:34 am
zarate. i have to say it's not a beach read. you were in the room after 9/11. you were in the room when all this planning started and you guys were told to do what? >> the treasury department was told to use all its power, influence, tools to go after al qaeda terrorist groups. disrupt, dismantle, disgroup so they can't attack again and also they can't attack in the future. >> that spawned a whole knew group of tools on how to go after them. it's now an integral part of how the national security and united states has thought about. >> having covered the white house you hear the administration talk about this speckly with iran terrorist groups north korea, et cetera. what about groups today, al shabaab. do they put money in banks?
8:35 am
can we use this to thwart them? >> they actually use a lost money. they attack they have exporting charcoal importing sugar. they raise millions of dollars? >> the interesting thing is norah, even with inform nal groups or local groups they have too access the financial group. you can use these techniques. with countries like iran it's harder. the first thing rouhani wants is a litt from sanctions but first he wanted a plug back into the banking system. >> that's that 311 rule i was looking at. >> that's exactly right. >> if you look at what's going on, around the corner is a big giant skyscraper that sits on
8:36 am
the most expensive real estate on the planet and this was owned and seized a few weeks ago by a held real government because they tran traced the money to iran. >> financial warfare, can they use it against us? ? >> they use it but in a different way. like china, instead of using the moral high ground and international community, they're doing the opposite. they're taking their cyber capabilities and stealing trade secrets to boost their own economy. >> they call it the biggest transfer. remember juan zarate is like karate karate.

>> the runners were set up with hooked shaped legs and were taught how to walk with them. anderson cooper looked at the threat of asteroids and comets. it's like a game of cosmic roulette. in a moment we'll talk with professor michio kaku but first here's anderson's report. >> asteroids have the potential to harm mankind as well. for better or worse this is what they know about near earth objects. this would have destroyed the world. you see these movies with bruce willis where an asteroid is coming and it's going to destroy the world. is that likely? >> no. no. we found 95% of the large ones. >> what about the other 5%?
8:41 am
>> we're still looking. >> he's talking about objects over half a mile wide that are big enough to cause global destruction. the problem is there are a lot of objects is over 40 in diameter. >> if you look at the light green dot. that's the orbit of the earth. >> ed lew showed us a computer representation of our solar system. that's the sun in the center and those green dots are the near earth objects that astronomers have found so far. >> this is about the 10,000 known asteroids. >> yes here's the problem. there's about 100,000 more. the real system looks like this. we know this. we know that there's about 100 times more asteroids. >> wait.
8:42 am
>> right now we only know about what percentage of those asteroids? >> about one half of one percent. >> does it worry you that you only know of 1% that are big enough to destroy a city? >> most of those are really small and the odds are many would hit in a remote area or hit in a an ocean. that's why the larger ones are the ones we're peaing attention to first. the next size range, they can cause continent wide extinction or destruction. >> continent-wide destruction? >> we'll work down. >> but right now a comet that could wipe out an eastern seaboard or new york city could be a day away and there's a very good chance we wouldn't know about it. >> we're working to make sure we know about it.
8:43 am
>> but right now we wouldn't know about it. >> it's possible. >> michio kaku is a physics professor in new york. good morning. >> good morning. >> i was thinking about you. it's scary, really scary we don't know. >> the dinosaurs did not have a space program and that's why they're not here today but we do have a space program but again we are sitting ducks with a piece of a rock the side of a telescope. that's a city buster. >> what do we have to do to be able to detect them? >> believe it or not amateurs do a good goode job of manning the skies. a hubble space telescope that is ziemed to look for small asteroids. it would cost churchmp changerch change.
8:44 am
>> if it's a no-brainer -- that's crazy. >> that's right. if that thing had hit the war, it would have hit with hiroshima bonds but we have the giggle factor. every time you talk to a politician about asteroids they start to giggle. that's a problem that should be taken seriously by the community. >> is there something in the atmosphere that will cause it to blow up before it hits the ground? >> we don't know for sure. a lot of them are not constructed well. these gases will explode the object even before it hits the
8:45 am
