7:00 am
. good morning to our viewers in the west. it's friday, august 18th, 2017. welcome to "cbs this morning." spanish police kill five suspected terrorists overnight after a second car attack on pedestrians. they say it's connected with the rampage in barcelona that kill at least 13 people and injured more than 100. the victims include people from 24 countries including the u.s. president trump was quick to condemn the spain attacks but his tweets also revived a debunked story about an american general. plus, maryland removes another statue linked to white supremacy overnight while georgia reconsiders the massive confederate monument at stone mountain. we have the forecast for monday's solar eclipse and what
7:01 am
nasa scientists hope to learn by watching the event from 50,000 feet up. but we begin today with "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> what happened? >> all of a sudden we heard lots of people screaming and crying. >> from behind and reason forward. >> a massive manhunt is under way following a deadly terror attack in spain. >> the driver plowed into pedestrian, zigging and zagging through a crowded barcelona street. >> police say they killed five people in the counterterror raid. >> around the world should know the united states and our allies are resolved to find you and bring you to justice. >> the republican senator calls into question the president's comp tensz. >> the president has not yet been able to demonstrate the ability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful. >> the president is also facing criticism for his tweets
7:02 am
defending monuments to confederate icons. >> are they still with this president? >> my constituents? do thigh get frustrated by some tweets? absolutely. but they look at what he's done. support him, no doubt. >> the captain of the uss fitzgerald has been relieved of duty after the horrifying crash that killed seven sailors. >> struggling to control major blazes in central portugal, a warning hotter weather is on the way for the region. >> all that -- >> amy schumer dropped in on judge duty. >> -- and all that matters -- >> there are questions about his stability so he's questioning whether the man with the nuclear launch codes is necessarily stable. >> that's what senator corker said, yeah. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> when we hear about london or paris, stockholm and now barcelona, you can almost start to become numb to it, like this is becoming something normal. we think we mustn't allow it to
7:03 am
become normal. we must talk about it so we remember how tragic these moments are. i want to ask to the rest of the world's outpouring of love and we're thinking of the victims what must be an unimaginable day. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." charlie rose is off, so jeff glor is with us here this morning. glad to have you here. the state department just revealed that one american is among those killed in a pair of terror attacks in spain. people in barcelona paused for a minute of silence this morning to remember victims of the deadly attacks. afterward, the crowd erupted in applause to show solidarity with those killed and injured. the death toll is now 14 after a woman died this morning of her injuries in cambrils, spain. the rest were killed in barcelona when a van mowed down
7:04 am
pedestrians on a major boulevard. more than 100 were injured. the victims come from two dozen countries. >> police have killed five suspects and arrested four others, but the driver of that van in barcelona is still at large. debra patta is in barcelona new eyewitness accounts. but first seth doane is in cambrils where police killed the five suspects after second car attack last night. seth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we were stopped at number of police checkpoints on our way down here, all part of that massive manhunt to try to find at least one terrorist who is still on the run. police say terrorists had planned a wave of attacks. gun fiver was heard from inside the cambrils bar early this morning. outside police had shot dead five attackers after they drove a car into pedestrians in this coastal community. one of those wounded later died. >> everybody was running.
7:05 am
>> reporter: this man witnessed the police operation and captured these images on his cell phone. >> shouting at the guy, then shots were fired who then fell down and within two seconds he stood back up and again stepped over the fence, charged the police again, and the police then fired more shots and then he fell down again. >> reporter: this eyewitness said he saw suspects wearing suicide vests, we were worried so we hid, he said. those veststonated by a bomb squad and determined to be fake. authorities say the attack in cambrils was linked to the one in barcelona, which unfolded just eight hours earlier. the attackers in that truck jumped the curb at the busy las ramblas in the heart of barcelona, plowing into pedestrians. those injured and dying were left bloodied and scattered along the street, popular with tourists.
7:06 am
it had zigzagged for seven blocks, apparently trying to hit as many people as possible. the driver of the van was seen escaping on foot. this man, driss oukabir, has been linked to the hiring of the vehicle and was questioned by police, but the driver remains at large. spanish media report it would be his brothder, musa. catalunya's police chief said both incidents were carried out by a terror cell of at least eight people who had been planning the attacks for some time and linked them to an explosion wednesday which leveled a house and was originally reported simply as a gas explosion. isis has claimed responsibility for these attacks. cbs news has learned it might not just be attacks inspired by isis but perhaps carried out by isis itself. as you can see, people here are just stunned at this idyllic beach community, wondering how something like this could happen. >> all right. seth doane, thank you. reporting from cambrils. we'll talk about that.
7:07 am
we want to g from there to barcelona, about 62 miles north. it is spain's second large st city and a major destination for tourists around the world. debra is there talking to survivors. >> reporter: incredible scenes here atlas ram blas where hundreds of barcelona residents have turned out clapping and chanting, i am not afraid, in open defiance of thursday's attack. packed with tourists from around the world, las ramblas turned into carnage, bodies strewn around the street as people went panicked in all directions. native new yorker alex is on holiday in spain with his family. it was a belated celebration for his younger sister's birthday. >> within seconds it was panic. >> reporter: they arrived atlas ram blas in a tour bus just as a
7:08 am
terrorist van began mowing down pedestrians. >> upon impact you just started seeing bodies and people sprinting. you could tell that was the definition of fear. >> his biggest concern is for his sister. he recorded this video as they made their escape. >> i said do everything i said. i said you and i are one person now. you do what i do, listen to what i say, and don't go anywhere without me. >> reporter: another was skateboarding down the road when people began screaming and running for their lives. he didn't stop to look but ran to safety into a nearby theater. >> when i was inside the theater, they were treating a small girl outside and she was probably from the age of, i don't know, 6 or 7 and she was screaming her eyes out in pain. >> cyril says he cannot block out the horrifying images that he saw yesterday but people in barcelona, he says, will not be defined by fear.
7:09 am
e during the chaos, many families were separated from each other including an australian boy still missing. his family desperately appealing for information on his whereabouts. >> debra, thank you. extra police officers are on pa patrol this morning here in new york city the wake of those attacks in spain. cbs news national security analyst fran townsend was homeland security and counterterrorism adviser to president george w. bush. fran, good morning. >> good morning. >> first with the news. u.s. law enforcement officials telling cbs news this morning that they have indications this was more than just an inspired isis attack. what does that mean? >> if you look at the events as they unfolded, you had the house which blew up when they failed to put together these gas canisters probably for a car bomb. then you had the tragic sort of seven-block, right, rage of this car, killing 14.
7:10 am
you also had on cambrils last night another car attack, people injured. you've got five dead there. they were wearing suicide belts. you look at the chronology, this was a fairly large cell, had to have been in place for a while, pretty good planning although their execution of the explosive elements was not so good. so i think that this looks like a you're hearing from law enforcement now much more directly controlled than just merely inspired. this wasn't somebody who got up and decided to take a car and ram it in a crowd. this was much more deliberate. >> is that the way it's going to go down these day, fran, just get in a car, a vehicle, and mow people down? there's story in "the washington post" this morning that people in the area were upset there weren't barricades in place to prevent this. >> we've seen, you know, whether it's in great britain or france more and more areas that are restricted, you know, there are no vehicles where there are pedestrians gathered. >> times square.
7:11 am
>> correct. i think you'll see more and more of this. it's difficult. once somebody gets the car and decides to use it as weapon, it's almost impossible to prevent them unless you have barriers. >> this was a reasonably large cell. this could easily have been much worse. >> that's right. the these guys had successfully executed on the explosives, you can imagine instead of just -- i don't want to minimize it -- using the car as the the weapon, imagine if the car had exploded in a large public area. >> they didn't have automatic weapons. this cell seems to be similar to the size of the one in france two years ago. those guys had automatic weapons. not these guys. why? >> we need to know more about the individuals who have been killed and are at large. i expect the cell will be to comprised not only of spaniards but probably moroccans coming from north africa. tt sort of f extremists, you have to cross a body of water, it is more difficult, and typically the spanish, between 2013 and 2016, have arrested 178 extremists.
7:12 am
40% of them have been moroccans, 40 spaniards. they're going to want to understand the composition of this cell, their travel patterns, communication, and how they were able to coordinate and get the component parts for the suicide belts and the gas cans. >> they have people in custody, that has to be an advantage for law enforcement. >> absolutely. most times you see everybody is dead. this is an advantage for intelligence community. >> fran townsend, thank you. president trump quickly condemned the attack in barcelona. he tweeted that the u.s. will do whatever is necessary to help. earlier this week, the president waited two days to condemn a white supremacist accused of plowing his car into a crowd of protesters in charlottesville, virginia. mr. trump then blamed both sides for that violence. margaret brennan is near the trump national golf club in new jersey as the president gets ready for an important national security meeting. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. aed in the fallout, chief of staff general john kelly and president trump will soon head to camp david to try to focus in
7:13 am
on what may be one of the most consequential decisions of this embattled young presidency. will u.s. troops stay or go from afghanistan? >> we are coming very close to a decision. >> reporter: today at camp david defense secretary james mattis and the president's top national security advisers will press him to decide whether to add to or withdraw the more than 8,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan. mr. trump has made clear his frustration with the war. >> i want to find out why we of been there for 17 years. >> reporter: last month the president rejected a plan approved by his national security team and began to consider an idea from strategist steve bannon, who proposed sending over 5,000 private contractors rather than u.s. troops. an idea pitched by blackwater founder eric prince, who recently spoke with "cbs this morning." >> 16 years is enough. we have another trillion particulars in health care costs that we're going to owe for the afghan war, so let's bring it to a close.
7:14 am
>> reporter: the president has avoided cameras in recent days but has not been silent. he condemned barcelona's attack telling his twitter followers to study what general pershing of the united states did to terrorists. reviving a debunked legend about an american general shooting muslim soldiers in the philippines, a story he resurrected from the campaign trail. >> shot each man with a bullet that was covered with pig's blood. e. >> reporter: that type of incendiary rhetoric combined with the delayed response for charlottesville led members of his own party, including senator bob corker, to question his leadership. >> the president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful. >> reporter: those are extraordinary remarks from the typically sir sum speccircumspe corker.
7:15 am
and tim scott, another republican, said the president's moral authority has been compromised. norah, there's a lot of requests from the president's own party for the president to change course. >> thank you. breaking news from finland where an attacker stabbed people this morning. reports say several people with knives rampaged through the area. police say one man is in custody after an officer shot him in the leg. they are telling people to stay away from the city center. the navy is punishing nearly a dozen american service members for their role in the crash between the "uss fitzgerald" and a cargo ship off the sea of japan. a newly released report details the moment they collided with a philippine container ship in june. seven u.s. soldiers were killed. they were asleep at the time. the container ship punched a 17 by 13-foot hole in the fitzgerald's hull in the area where 35 sailors were sleeping flooded in less than a minute.
7:16 am
the seven sailors close toast the impact drowned. the 28 in the same apartment made it out alive. the captain of the ship, commander bryce benson, and two top sea members were relieved of duty. gary rehm was laid to rest at arlington national cemetery on tuesday. excitement is building across the country for monday's rare total solar eclipse. we're going the bring you the best views in a two-hour special report that starts at 10:00 a.m. pacific time on monday. chief weather caster lonnie quinn is here with a unique look at how it's all going to go down. >> an idea of what you're going to experience and where you live. we have set up this system in studio 57. we all know that the earth revolves around the sun and the moon revolves around the earth but at least twice a year they fall into alignment and you get
7:17 am
some kind of eclipse, be it a lunar eclipse or solar eclipse. the total solar eclipse, that's the big show and that's where the moon completely blocks out the sun. it's only possible because even though sun is 400 times larger than this little moon, the moon is 400 times closer to the earth. as a result from our perspective when we look at the die skye, the sun and the moon look like they're about the same size. when that sun hits the moon and casts its shadow on the earth, you get a couple of different types of shadows. number one mos of you are going to see a large partial shadow you see a portion of the sun but a select few are going to get to see the umbra, and that's nature's big event, where the moon xleeptly blocks out the sun, calm toadal ti and the area it hits on the earth is known as the path of totality. monday it goes from oregon to south carolina. so charleston, south carolina, you'll gt a bona fide 100% solar eclipse. if you go to places like portland, oregon, 99.5%.
7:18 am
the you g away from this line to the north or to the south you'll get a lower percentage, about 90% of the sun is covered in seattle, den version atlanta, and the further away you go from that line the percentages continue to g down. 75% of the sun is covered in san francisco and philadelphia and further away you go from that the percentages continue to g down. but everybody in this country is going to see something on monday. so get out there and check it out. the big question now becomes what's the weather going to be like along that path of totality? what we of done is put together a map showing you where we believe the cloud cover will be. of course cloud cover is going to make this a problem. it looks like the best viewing is going to be around the pacific northwest. but as you make that push towards nebraska, it looks like you have a pretty thick deck of clouds and that will make it tough to view. as you go through the tennessee valley, looks great there. as you get to south carolina, becomes an issue, not so much inland, but looks like right
7:19 am
along the coast. i was just talking about charleston, south carolina. it looks like charleston, the forecast. monday total tay will be for quite a bit of cloud cover, even a rain chance. i of put together a list of wh gets the best and who gets the most challenging skies overhead. oregon, looks great. totality will be anywhere from say 1 to 2 1/2 minutes, 10:19 to 10:21, your local time in madras, oregon, literally daytime to night time, you can see stars in the sky. it will be great. sun valley, idaho, great. nashville, tennessee, greenville, south carolina, looking pretty good. the difficult spots would be places like charleston, south carolina, where that cloud cover is going to be in place, grand isle, nebraska, st. joseph, missouri, columbia, south carolina, as well. keep your guys to the sky. over to you, jeff. >> we're not in the select few class. >>, no but we'll still see something. >> that's right. >> nasa will launch two eclipse chasing aircraft to follow the

phenomenon. david begnaud takes us inside. but first your local weather.

what do you think of the comparison of washington and lee that the president is making? do you think that is on any firm ground? >> the difference is that general washington founded the country. he was and did everything as that first president because he knew everybody was watching him. as he was founding the country and laid the cornerstone for the country and what he did before hand in fighting the revolution but also in the way he behaved in office. and so by contrast, general lee was an open rebellion against that thing that washington built and for the purposes of keeping an institution that is a prt of america's original seasin. they're not comparable at all.

8:01 am
morning that they have indications that this was more than an inspired isis attack. >> fairly large cell. had to have been in place for awhile. >> good planning. this looks much more directly controlled than merely inspired. >> john kelly will have to focus on one of the most consequential decisions of this presidency. will u.s. troops stay or go from afghanistan? >> this is going to be a heck of an event for us and everybody in this country is going to see something on monday. get out there and check it out. the big question is what is the weather going to be like. >> people in barcelona pause for a minute of silence this morning. >> people here determined to make a show in barcelona that terrorism will not win that they will come back. they will defy the terrorists. >> >> the state department

8:03 am
>> police say they shot and killed five suspected terrorists and with that may have saved much growing casualty numbers from that. those suspected terrorists were wearing suicide vests that wound up being fake but eyewitnesses said they saw those vests. they hid. they were worried. and police are saying that this is a linked to the attack in barcelona which unfold ld just about 8 hours earlier around 5:00 p.m. yesterday when that van jumped the curve in a busy part of barcelona. and into a crowd of people. eyewitnesses say it appeared to be ailing at people trying to get out of the way. the suspect drove 7 blocks before taking off on foot. authorities say this may have been part of the terrorist cell of at least 8 people that may have been trying to carry out another attack using gas can nis administers. that's earlier in the week on wednesday a house was levered after an explosion kwh was a gas

discussion. always good to see you. >> good to see you. >> then you have senator bob corker say that he doesn't think the president's demonstrated the stability or the confidence to be successful in this job. this is a big deal, why. >> well, two things. it's who is saying the remarks and the nature of them. the first is that senator corker is not a hot head in the traditional usual suspects category. always criticizing the president for everything he does. senator scott is not in that category either so it's rare for him to criticize him but also it's the nature of the decree teak which is not just about the reaction to the events but it's a broader critique about the stability and compatibility between his natural instincts and the job that he holds and wlits possible to fit those natural impulses into that job and the country will be in great barrel. >> are you hearing others share this view that are wondering about his stability?
8:06 am
it's carefully considered in a methodical decree teak. >> he now insulted more republicans than democrats on his twitter feed even within his own white house staff. the isolation grows. while the president is isolated there's people that believe he is started by the media and now joined by some people and so there are some that say there's
8:07 am
a dangerous world out there and while we find the behavior of the president objectionable he is still the president. there's still terrorists and still an iran deal we don't like. >> a majority of republicans support what he said about charlottesville. the overwhelming majority of democrats disagree with what he said. again the issue politicized. >> that's where somebody like senator corker matters because he is break out of the usual trajectory these things go in but at the moment people are pretty much into where you sit is where you stand. >> let's talk about substance in terms of the decision this weekend in camp david afghanistan. big deal. >> big deal and for two reasons,
8:08 am
one there is the big deal at the center of the policy after 16 years does america still have interest in afghanistan and is america willing to commit itself to afghanistan? but then it's also, it's making the decision within the advisors the president has there's real conflicts inside the administration. so this is a model to be made by the president in his administration and whether he can make it effectively is one of the things somebody like bob corker were risk about. >> we'll have a lot to discuss on sunday. that's right. so sunday on face the nation john will speak with republican senator tim scott of south carolina and tim cain of
