7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is getting ready for the hollywood film awards. and she'll join us later. >> look at that set. >> fancy. >> oh, my goodness. sharyn alfonsi of "60 minute sports" is with us. overnight, president obama issued a new challenge to republicans on the hot button issue of immigration. he wants to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from being deported. his immigration proposal would allow many of those people to work legally. >> the news is getting a furious response from republicans in congress. major garrett is in myanmar where the president raised the stake, in the battle over immigration. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president stood with human rights icon aung san suu kyi on the back porch of her residence. speaking of the pacing of
7:04 am
things, mr. obama said he's almost ready to sidestep congress and launch immigration reform by executive order. president obama emerged from aung san suu kyi's home. to confront anger over his vow to prevent millions from deportation. the gop, he said, has only itself to blame. >> they have the ability to fix the system. what they don't have the ability to do is expect me to stand by with a broken system in perpetuity. >> the president is considering protecting up to 5 million undocumented adults, many parents of u.s. born children or so-called dreamers. children brought here illegally but grew up in america. mr. obama exempted dreamers from deportation in june of 2012. republicans urged the president to back off. >> the president has been told other and over and over again, and we're telling him again today, don't do this. we'd like the president to recognize the reality of the government he has, not the one he wishes he had. >> a top adviser to president
7:05 am
obama said it's not an option. gop threats trying to block funds for the executive action will not intimidate mr. obama. >> i would advise if, in fact they want to take a different approach, rather than devote a lot of time trying to constrain my lawful action, as the chief executive of u.s. government in charge of enforcing our immigration laws that they spend some time passing the bill. >> the president awaits final recommendations from the department of homeland security, but mr. obama, who has delayed this move once, knows the options well. as one top adviser put it, this isn't like the academy awards where the president is presented an envelope and he doesn't know what's inside. sharyn? >> thanks. major. we spotted joe clancy traveling with the president in myanmar. back in the u.s., his agency is dealing with new fallout of the security breach at the white house back in september. that's when the secret service
7:06 am
failed to stop a fence jumper. homeland security investigators found a long list of errors. bill plante is at the white house where the intruder was a famili figure. good morning, bill. >> reporter: good morning, and good morning to our viewers in the west. omar gonzalez was already well known to the secret service. he'd been questioned twice in the two weeks before he jumped the fences. on the evening that he did scale the fence, uniformed secret service officers recognized him around the white house but had no reason to detain him. >> everybody out, right now. go back. >> reporter: the report says gonzalez ignored officers shouting at him as he cleared the fence and sprinted across the north lawn, setting off alarms. but cross talk and a wrong setting garbled radio transmissions. foliage obscured the view of other officers. the emergency response team had gonzalez in their rifle sites but they decided lethal force was uncalled for since he appeared unarmed. an officer with a dog was stationed in a van on the
7:07 am
driveway. he was on a personal cell phone call without his agency radio ear piece in place and was unaware of the alarms. when he did see gonzalez and ordered to attack, gonzalez ducked in front of the bushes outside the white house. outside the white house doors another officer aimed his weapon at gonzalez but saw that he appeared unarmed and did not fire. by the time the officer realized the doors were unlocked, gonzalez was inside the white house. the female on duty just inside the door attempted to take gonzalez down but was unable to do so because the army veteran then overpowered her. he then moved past the staircase to the family's living quarters and entered the east room before a uniformed officer and two special off-duty agents brought him down. the report summary concludes officers did not receive adequate training because of staffing shortages and it blames
7:08 am
lack of radio discipline along with aging infrastructure for communications failures it spokesman ed donovan says the secret service is putting into place change in training staffing communications and intelligence gathering. but members of congress are not satisfied. one of them called the episode a comedy of errors. norah? >> bill, thank you. the leader of isis calls the united states terrified and weak from new audio recordings. apparently from abu bakr al baghdadi. he also promises, quote, volcanos of jihad. >> the new threats come after reports that isis teamed up with a rival al qaeda affiliate. the associated press says isis and al nu sra front. former cia deputy mike morell, a cbs senior news contributor joins us from naples, florida. good morning, mike. >> good morning, charlie. >> is this true and what does it mean? >> so, charlie, right now there's just two sources
7:09 am
reporting this agreement between al nusra and isis so we'll have to wait and see. but if it is true it is very significant. because these two groups have occasionally fought each other over the last year. an agreement to stop that fighting would allow them them to focus more on the moderate opposition and fighting assad. it also, i think, increases the risk of a terrorist threat in the united states because it brings together al nusra's explosive capabilities sophisticated explosive capabilities, with isis's foreign fighters they could send back to the united states. this is worrisome. >> i wonder how this complicates u.s. efforts in syria and also if they're joining forces to defeat assad, then what's assad doing to try to take them out? >> so, norah, one of the things that i think is happening right now is that the white house is going to take another look at our policy in syria, take
7:10 am
another look at what we should be doing in syria. and i think they're looking at two things. i think they're looking at to what extent should we go after isis and al nusra. remember, the plan was to go after isis first in iraq and then deal with syria. i think they're now going to look at should we be going after isis and al nusra now. the other thing they'll look at is should we be going after assad more aggressively since he's the guy who started the whole thing. >> you mean it would be a two-part war on our part, assad and isis? >> so that's what they're considering, charlie. >> we heard secretary hagel and dempsey saying in congress yesterday saying the war is just beginning there. how much longer do you think our involvement there, how long do we stay, how much deeper do we get? >> when this whole thing started, the president said this was going to take a long time. that's absolutely right. i think we're look at years of effort in both iraq and syria.
7:11 am
>> all right, thanks. michael morell this morning. well, it is warmer this morning in barrow, alaska, along the arctic ocean than it is in much of the united states. snow is on the ground from coast to coast. heavy snow fell around philadelphia last night as commuters tried to get home. up to a foot of new snow is also causing trouble for drivers in northeast ohio. >> some parts of wisconsin will receive 40 inches this week. a storm caused problems outside of oregon. that snow is headed toward the rockies this morning. meteorologist danielle niles of our cbs station wbz is tracking it all. danielle, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. good morning to our viewers in the west. a big story today, freeze warnings down to the gulf coast states. cold and snow another story as well it winter weather advisories in the central part of the country and winter storm warnings from the rockies to portions of the cascades where snow will continue to spread east. tomorrow morning, from south dakota back down through kansas
7:12 am
and nebraska periods of snow will impact travel through the saturday afternoon and evening time frame in the midwest. eventually spreading east through the great lakes. and into portions of new england by the time we get to sunday night. snowfall totals, less in the valleys. generally about 1 to 3 inches. when you get into the high terrain, we'll talk about 3 to 6 inches and even 6 or more high temperatures today topping out in the 50s but 40s back up in seattle and only in the teens in portions of the northern plains. >> danielle, thank you. another american will be treated for ebola in the united states. sources tell cbs news a plane is on the way to sierra leone to pick up a doctor who contracted the disease there. the patient should arrive in nebraska medical center in omaha tomorrow. he would be the hospital's third ebola case. a top nato commander said russian tanks and troops are moving into eastern ukraine. moscow denies those claims. the development comes after russia announced new air force training exercises near united states borders.
7:13 am
david martin is at the pentagon with the military's response. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when russia's defense minister announced plans for these new long-range bomber patrols, he linked them specifically to tensions over ukraine, telling the u.s. in effect if you meddle in our backyard we'll meddle in yours. u.s. military officers say russian bombers flying patrols over the caribbean and gulf of mexico would be more of an in your face message than an actual military threat. it's never happened before. during the cold war, soviet aircraft flew reconnaissance missions but never bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons. once in 2008 and again in 2013 blackjack bombers flew to nicaragua and venezuela, but those were window dressings for visits from high-level delegations. the announcement comes as president obama and russia's
7:14 am
president putin are set to attend the same summit this weekend in australia. both men surely know having bombers circle around to the south of the u.s. doesn't make much military sense. the bombers and their refueling tankers could be tracked all the way across the atlantic leaving plenty of time to scramble interceptor jets. benjamin friedman is a research fellow at the cato institute. >> politically it's important. it shows that russia is trying to show its relevance and poke its finger in the u.s.'s eye, look, we're still here, you have to deal with us. plan for it. >> reporter: as long as they stay outside the limit that marks u.s. air space. once last year a russian bomber came within 50 miles of california. there's no indication yet when these new patrols would begin or how often they would be conducted. norah? >> all right, david. thank you. the price of gas dropped again overnight. the national average for a gallon of regular is $2.91. that's 70 cents lower than in june when it was $3.68.
7:15 am
jericka duncan is in new jersey with more potential savings ahead. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. drivers here are paying $2.83 for a gallon of gas. now, the key is oil prices have fallen below $80 a barrel and as consumers continue to see a drop in gas prices and fuel sur charges, analysts predict that will have a trickle-down effect on everything from clothes to groceries. gone are the days of $4 a gallon gas. since the summer consumers have watched fuel prices plunge to levels not seen since 2008. tom closa is an analyst for oil price information service. >> if you're using heating oil, they're looking at a winter where they may spend $500 less than last winter. and gasoline they're probably saving somewhere on the order of $50 or $60 a month. >> reporter: closa says consumers are also beginning to save in other ways.
7:16 am
some companies are now removing those fuel sur charges passed on to customers back when gas prices were rising. just last month, taxis in miami eliminated fuel sur charges added in 2008. in texas, dropping fuel sur charges for customers. and shipping giant matson announced they would lower sur fuel charges by 5% from chicago to hawaii. >> anything not breathing we pretty much will move it. >> reporter: brad is president of ground force logistics, a freight transportation company in new york that moves 6 million pounds of cargo each day to and from america's ports. >> as costs go down our prices go down. it directly influences our cost and our pricing. >> reporter: allowing the retail market to ease up on charges normally passed on to shoppers. >> it really impacts the people who need it most. people who live paycheck to paycheck are the ones that get some sticker shock on the way up and they're the ones that are
7:17 am
the greatest beneficiaries on the way down. >> reporter: and barclays bank is already forecasting that american consumers could have more than $70 billion to spend next year because of savings on gas. sharyn? >> all right, jericka, thanks. a months-long standoff. that held the book industry spellbound is over this morning. amazon and the publicing company hachette announced a deal. thursday. it sets a long-running argument over who will set book prices and how to share prices. elaine quijano shows us the settlement could benefit authors and amazon customers. elaine, good morning. >> that's correct. amazon has dominated the e-book market for years and some say that's given the company tremendous power to negotiate tough terms with publishers. authors watching this fight say it sill bombizes the bigger battle over the future of book business. the fight between amazon and the publishing company hachette which represents popular authors
7:18 am
like j.k. rowling and james patterson is now in the books. in a joint statement amazon and hachette announced a multiyear contract ending a drawn-out dispute over how e-books should be priced and how to split the profit. both sides say the deal allows the publisher to set the prices of their e-books while also giving them an incentive to keep prices low for amazon shoppers. >> i was very relieved. >> reporter: best-selling author doug preston says sales of his new book "blue libabyrinth" were affected by amazon's elaborate decision >> they often have pages that would try to redirect buyers to other books. >> reporter: another big name author stephen colbert has used his popular comedy show to mock the ongoing fight. >> i'll tell you what, amazon.
7:19 am
i've got a little package for you right here. wait a second. here it is. >> reporter: amazon controls nearly two-thirds of the e-book market, giving it significant leverage in negotiations. publishers say low e-book prices affect hard cover sales which in turn hurt book stores. >> publishers want book stoshs to continue to exist. amazon wants the book stores to disappear. >> both amazon and hachette had similar assessments to come to an agreement. we're heading into the lucrative holiday shopping season and both companies have had less than inspiring earnings in recent months. >> all right, elaine. thank you. it is 7:19. ahead, the american cardinal tasked with cleaning up the catholic church's sex abuse scandal. we asked him about the bishops who covered it up and are still we are looking at a big change in the weather for the weekend. the rain is gone now. but we have seen a lot of fog developing this morning. in fact, some of that patchy fog hanging out over the bay right now. but we are going to see a lot

>> good morning. 24 navy s.e.a.l.s executed the 2011 raid to kill or capture osama bin laden. they were sworn to secrecy, part of the lifelong pledge taken by the elite force but one highly decorated vet has taken the controversial step of revealing his identity and role in the historic mission. >> the chances of us dying were good, the chances of us not coming back were really good as far as we were concerned. >> reporter: former navy s.e.a.l. robert o'neill says he killed the world's most wanted man. >> i turned and walked into the next room and was looking at osama bin laden. that's when i shot him. and killed him. >> how many shots? >> three total. >> where? >> i shot him in the face three times. >> you believe you fired the kill shots. >> i fired them, yes. >> details of the raid were classified. the identities of s.e.a.l. team 6 known only by those at the top. how do you keep that secret? >> i think it's a difficult secret to keep. everyone was proud. it was pretty apparent that we

7:38 am
child abuse where he's made the biggest impact. >> for many people outside the church and inside the church, the biggest scandal isn't the priests. it's the bishops who lied about them and moved them from parish to parish. and many of these predators have been prosecuted. but the bishops have not. why is that? >> one of the first things that came up is the importance of accountability. and we're looking at how the church could have protocols as to how to respond when the bishop has not been responsible for the protection of children in this diocese. >> i want to ask you about robert finn who is the bishop in kansas city st. joseph. as you know, he pleaded guilty to a criminal misdemeanor for not reporting one of his priests to authorities. bishop finn wouldn't be able to

in our "morning rounds" the exercise puzzle. new research done by arizona state university reveals how some people lose weight from
8:14 am
working out, but others put on the pounds and they're not coming from added muscle. our dr. tara narula is with us. tara, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> so explain this study. >> this study was onion women who were premenopausal and overweight. they asked them not to change their diet but instead put them on a supervised exercise program where they walked on the treadmill about 30 minutes three times a week and watched what happened to their weight over the next three months. they found overall as a group there was no significant change in their weight. they did increase their aerobic fitness, which was interesting, but when you looked more closely at the group, what the most interesting part of this finding is that 70% of the women actually gained weight and that weight was not muscle it was fat. >> so what did we learn from that then? >> so we try to figure out why does that be. it doesn't make sense. the theory by exercising these women may have been doing two things, eating more and moving less outside of the setting of exercise. so when we think about eating more, they may have been eating
8:15 am
bigger portions, more unhealthy foods. >> there's nothing in this there's an indictment of exercise. >> no, no. i think that would be the wrong message. >> so they may eat more. >> i think unconsciously people may be eating more and the appear tied hormones can be stimulated and that might make them eat more. if they're moving less at home because they feel like they exercise 30 minutes, maybe they sit on the sofa a little longer they take the elevator instead of the stairs so all of these add up and might be increasing their gaining of weight. >> i know i've done that after i've worked out. well, now i can have a cheeseburger because you're feeling really really proud of yourself and want a reward. >> you can't underestimate. it always comes back to diet and exercise bottom line. >> you need diet exercise and behavioral modification. exercise alone really doesn't give you that much weight loss. and you need to exercise probably more than you would just to maintain your weight. so to maintain weight the recommendations are 150 minutes a week of moderate. >> you can be a little bit
8:16 am
overweight and still be fit. >> and that's really the big point. there are benefits to exercise regardless of whether you lose weight. those benefits include decrease in your rate of death, decrease in heart disease, stroke improved mood, strengthening of your bones. there's a lot of positives. >> great, okay. so walk but just don't walk to the drive-through. there you have it. a woman disappearance from a dream destination but police say her boyfriend killed her.
