7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning. >> good morning to you, charlie. >> we begin with this new concerns that al qaeda is on the move. the iraq al qaeda group has changed its name to the islamic state of iraq to show the growing ambition. >> and there are growing fears set to become the new haven in syria for that. u.s. officials warn it could be the world's greatest terror threat. lara logan is in washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah, good morning, charlie. >> good morning. >> how dangerous is al qaeda in syria? and what are u.s. officials concerned about? >> well dangerous or not, for the deputies or the cia to say that, there are more foreign fighters flooding into syria to fight with al qaeda today than in the war in iraq. the way to explain this according to the academics that i speak to regularly, it's that
7:04 am
the army in syria is really al qaeda's guerilla army. they will move that army to whatever front there is next anywhere in the world. many ever those fighters probably came from afghanistan or iraq where they learned to fight the u.s. they come from north africa they come from yemen, they come from all over to. and that organization particularly has very close act with ayman al zawahiri who is in the pakistan region. so it's very much a movement based on ideology right there in the center of the country. >> lara speak to that point, speak to that point, in terms of what is the threat if in fact al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates get control of a state. >> well the people who know the most about chemical weapons in the united states charlie, say that what is scary about syria is not just the presence of chemical stockpiles. it's the knowledge, the technical knowledge, and training and know how, and the
7:05 am
delivery systems that are required to deliver those weapons. on its own, a dirty bomb is terrifying as a concept. but it really is not even as effective as many conventional weapons. what they're afraid of in syria, is that the people who know how to use them and the delivery systems that are required to deliver chemical weapons to the most devastating effect it's all sitting there and nobody knows yet who is going to win the peace in syria. is it may be al qaeda. >> these groups are al qaeda affiliates surging in there and they're fighting somewhat with themselves? >> you know that's interesting, charlie, because affiliate has become a word that everybody loves to use to describe these organizations. but when you track what al qaeda says and the movement of their people, this is not an organization that's divided up into different regions and does their own thing. they are united by their ideology. they have made that very plain. they have the same intent their intent today is exactly the same
7:06 am
as it was pre-9/11. it's exactly what osama bin laden said it was. it's more of a change. if you read the magazine if you listen to the videos and all the statements that they point out, they sent their best bombmaker in the world to run part of their organization in algeria, because algeria was the training ground from which they sent their fighters from their different fronts from all over the world. we have this sense that we want to divide all of this to say yemen is the most dangerous area. tomorrow it's algeria, then north africa, and now syria. the fact is al qaeda's ideology is what's at the core. that's why they're called the base. the base is the uniting factor. and that's really where the threat comes from. they're taking more territory and spreading their ideology, and that's what makes them dangerous. >> lara logan, good to see you. thank you. and a massive pipeline explosion this morning in illinois. it happened near erie. flames shot 300 feet in the air. they could be seen for 20 miles.
7:07 am
people in 80 homes were forced out, but most are now aloud back in this morning. officials say crews have shut off a natural gas line but the flames are expected to burn for several hours. no injuries reported. former secretary of the state hillary clinton is doing little to end speculation she wants to be the next president. in san francisco, she admits she'll be making policy speeches in the paul. john blackstone shows us how political watchers are reading between the lines. >> i am so deeply grateful for you for this award. >> reporter: accepting an award from the american bar association, hillary clinton criticized the supreme court decision striking down protections in the voting rights act. >> as secretary of state, i saw other countries take steps to increase voter participation and strengthen their democratic processes. there is no reason we cannot do the same here in america. [ applause ] >> reporter: while the potential presidential candidate did not mention the 2016 election she outlined plans that sounded a
7:08 am
lot like a launchpad for a campaign. >> i will talk about the balance and transparency necessary in our national security policies. as we move beyond a decade of wars, to face new threats. >> reporter: bruce cain stanford university political scientist. >> it's definitely a shadow campaign. there's no question about that. everybody in the party presumes that hillary clinton will run. everybody in the democratic party presumes she'll be the front-runner. >> reporter: republicans seem to presume that too. a new ad just released by the gop criticizes clinton's handling of terrorist attack in benghazi. >> was it because of guys going for a walk and decided to kill americans what difference at this point does it make? >> reporter: in iowa a caucus state, emily's group, a group that promotes women candidates has just launched a madam president campaign. clinton was undoubtedly on everyone's minds.
7:09 am
for "cbs this morning," john blackstone, san francisco. >> and while clinton is not showing her hand we may be getting clues from anthony weiner. >> good morning. the interview took place at a manhattan bar but anthony weiner skips the traditional beer for an iced coffee. once he got settled, he talked scandal, politics and family. >> reporter: in an interview late monday with a viral website buzzfeed anthony weiner admitted he's still getting help in the wake of his sexting scandal. >> apparently a lot of therapy. like they just have this thing where you just remain in forever. but i -- i still see a therapist from time to time. >> reporter: throughout the 45-minute sitdown, he opened up about everything from his campaign to his wife huma abedin a longtime aide to hillary clinton. >> do you know what the role in hillary's 2016 campaign will be?
7:10 am
>> i do. >> what will it be? >> i'm not telling you. [ laughter ] >> do you feel like you've damaged her place in that world? >> i feel what i've done has hurt her, yeah it's hurt her professionally, it's hurt her personally. >> reporter: the interview came after 80% of new york voters have an unfavorable opinion of the mayoral hopeful. while weiner didn't mention the polls or the new tv ad he did call out his critics. >> they made it clear from the very beginning they didn't want me to win but this isn't about what they want. they've gotten their way for far too long. >> reporter: throughout the interview, weiner blasted the campaign. taking aim at a new york newspaper. >> "the new york times" didn't want me to win. i don't care and it makes them nuts that i do not care.
7:11 am
>> reporter: he didn't even spare host of buzzfeed editor in chief ben smith. >> you can show this or videos of what thes or whatever you do at buzzfeed. >> in general, he said he's keeping his distance from his colleagues in public life because he knows he has a lot to prove to them. charlie, norah. michael bloomberg is furious over a judge's ruling. she is naming an independent monitor to oversee major changes. bloomberg said the policy has saved thousands of lives, most of whom are young minority men. >> this is a very dangerous decision, made by a judge that i think just does not understand how policing works. we believe we have done exactly what the courts allow. and the constitution allow us to do. and we will continue to do everything we can to keep this city safe.
7:12 am
>> bloomberg is vowing to appeal the ruling. a florida security guard is being hailed as a hero. he evacuated people from a resort near walt disney world as it collapsed into a sinkhole. it took about 15 minutes for guests saying at summer bay resort. manuel bojorquez is there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, we're expecting a briefing where we could learn where the 100-foot wide sinkhole is growing. all right from this building a few hundred yards from this gate, is a total loss. guests who were staying in this three-story building knew something was wrong when it started to creek and are windows shattered. >> where is the patient located at summer bay? >> it's not a patient. we have a building that's potentially collapsing. >> reporter: a security guard helped evacuate more than 100 people before this happened.
7:13 am
eventually, a third of the building fell into the hole. maggie ghamry her 3-year-old son and their friends had just checked into the resort sunday evening. >> i started hearing this bagging, even before i walked in, i heard this clink, like metal on metal. like someone was hitting something really hard. i looked where it was coming from. right away my alerts were raised. people were throwing luggage out of the window. >> reporter: everyone made it out safely. sinkholes are a common sight in florida. here's why underneath much of the state say layer of porous limestone which can be washed away by seeping water. all that remains is a thin bridge of clay soil and sand which can collapse. >> like an hourglass, sands through the hourglass, it slowly tries to creep in. >> reporter: geologist scott purcifull says a sinkhole of this size is not that uncommon
7:14 am
but difficult tole predict. >> cavities themselves form over thousands to millions of years. it's just to a point where like this one, very suddenly that material can collapse into that cavity. >> reporter: but you have no idea it might happen? >> that's true. >> reporter: next month, the florida geological survey will begin a new mapping project, hoping to identify areas where sinkholes are likely to form. charlie and norah. >> manuel thanks. atlanta police are investigating the death of a man who fell more than 60 feet at turner field. the man plunged from an upper level deck on to a parking lot. it happened between the game between the braves and the phillies. the fall appears to be accidental. the 16-year-old girl is back home with her family today. authorities say james dimaggio took her to idaho. they say he fired at least one shot before fbi agents returned
7:15 am
fire killing him. anderson didn't learn that her mother and brother had been killed until after her rescue. her father is now asking for privacy. >> as for my daughter the healing process will be slow. she has been through a tremendous horrific ordeal. i'm very proud of her. and i love her very much. >> authorities confirm hannah was a victim through the ordeal held against her will. one of the most infamous mobsters in american history finally faces justice. a jury has convicted james "whitey" bulger on all but one of the 32 counts. and now we're hearing from one of the jurors. don dahler is outside the federal courthouse in boston. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. this was the culmination of whitey bulger's legendary life of crime two decades. and yet the man who ruled boston with an iron fist showed little emotion when the verdict came down. >> james j. whitey bulger now
7:16 am
stands convicted for his role as the ringleader of the hill gang. >> reporter: officials called it a day of reckoning after a jury convicted the 83-year-old gangster on 31 counts murder arms trafficking. >> the evidence presents without a doubt the atrocities committed by mr. bulger and his associates. >> reporter: whitey bulger ran the irish mafia. he was the inspiration behind jack nicholson's character in "the departed." and testimony from witnesses at the trial reads like a screen play. victims whose teeth were pulled to keep them from being identified. brazen executions strangulations and torture. michael donoghue an innocent

8:07 am
but i think it's worth sharing with you today. that the defense says from hank brannon, jay and i are encouraged that the government's corruption and cover-up has been exposed but this is just the tip of the iceberg. the victims' families and citizens deserve a congressional inquiry and insistence on government accountability. >> so what does the fbi say, do they say something like well a couple of bad apples it's a very rare exception? >> yes. that's what they said. and what the argument has been by many, many people who have followed this trial and its saga is that this was endemic. this was not a couple of bad apples. >> what did the defense in reality, expect to get out of this verdict? >> i think the defense is quite satisfied, bizarrely, with what happened here. they agreed there was extortion. there was drug dealing. there was money laundering. the only thing that's contested really worthy of murders, particularly of the two women. one there was a finding proven.

respect other people's privacy and not sharing the information outside of the group. the other downside is that you would only use this for chronic conditions. things where your condition is pretty stable and not necessarily that controversial. >> such as? >> for example, diabetes high blood pressure, high cholesterol. you wouldn't use something like this for a drug or alcohol abuse problem, for example. we still emphasize privacy, but it's just a different nature in terms of the stakes of privacy. >> is it your opinion that most of the patients that do this are satisfied by the experience and believe it was worthy? >> well people do it they volunteer for it. so it's not something that is forced upon people. people who do it like the group setting. especially for patients who are quiet or think about questions later after they go home the group setting is nice because other people may ask questions. they can get information in that setting and think about things that they might not otherwise ask about. and get support from other people. >> people at home are saying i
8:19 am
don't want to share my time with the doctor. i have privacy concerns. this is about cost effectiveness. does it save money? >> well, there's two things. it wouldn't substitute the actual visit. doctors would still meet one-on-one. in terms of the cost savings. the studies are mixed. it's only been studied in a few conditions so far. it looking generally speaking it saves people for example, on diabetes, people are less likely to be hospitalized for it. that can safe up to $7,500 for patient. >> thank you. and kentucky senator rand paul is here in studio 57. he'll tell us why he's putting aside party differences and working with president obama in one key battle. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by allergan.

there's probably more than that meets the eye. sometimes, people play up differences more than similarities. on mandatory minimums this is something i've worked hard on with senator patrick leahy. and the e-mails should be protected. >> and why can't republicans in the senate work more often in terms of creating that kind of result? >> it's kind of interesting. some people think compromise is meeting halfways in the middle. whereas, i think you can passionately believe in something and do bipartisanship. for example, jill gillibrand working with her on the military, i believe as strongly as she does there's a lot of sexual assaults that go unreported. and that justice isn't being served through primarily women in the military. >> one of the big debates in this country, in part because of edward snowden, and his now get ago asylum in russia.
8:35 am
and the nsa surveillance. >> when you get information on someone's records, you should get a warrant can means the fourth amendment says you have to be individualized to the person and place and what you want. so i think it's really wrong that we write one order from a secret court and we get everybody's phone numbers. i think that's a real mistake. >> can i just get to you respond i know this has been played out in your disagreement with chris christie who says those libertarians -- >> you're not going get me started on that are you? >> do you want to get started? >> i guess i will. >> there are two views. but you heard chris christie really denouncing the libertarian wing. >> and we want young people to come to the republican party.
8:36 am
they don't have any money but they're not concerned with taxes and regulations but they all have a cell phone and on the internet so they're concerned about their privacy. i think the republican party ought to be a party that is concerned with it and privacy. i think for the most part it means that you believe sincerely in the strict interpretation of rights and privacy. >> and can i turn to those among those thinking about running for president? >> the thought has crossed my mind. >> make trips to iowa and other places. what will make you decide to run? >> you know it's an enormous invasion of your privacy to run for national office. it will be a big discussion with my family on whether or not, one, we want to withstand sort of the onslaught and the scrutiny that you get with this. really a lot of this is not fair. it's to your family and your kids. >> but they overcome that don't they? >> some, yes and no.
8:37 am
it is a big decision. >> you're from kentucky. it looks like at the polls that the minority leader in the senate mitch mcconnell is in trouble. >> depends which polls you look at. i would sate good news for someone like senator mcconnell and myself is that we voted 61% for someone like mitt romney. and the president, 40% of democrats voted undecided in the last primary in 2012 when the president was on the ballot against none of the above. >> he said he has to hold his nose and known as someone who strongly supports you? >> i know the campaign manager well i've been on a campaign bus before. i'm guessing it's mcconnell who has to hold his nose sometimes. >> meaning? >> well, we'll just have to let that stand as is you know. but, you know i think that -- well, i've met and worked with the campaign manager. and i see nothing but sincerity
8:38 am
really to have senator mcconnell re-elected. i think he'll do everything in his power to make that happen. >> go ahead. >> i was going to say thank you. >> the feud is over with governor christie? >> i've offered him a beer. offered a beer summit. i would even come to new jersey and buy the beer. so far i haven't gotten any response. >> can the republican party get past this? can they appeal to moderate? >> i think republican party is big enough for all of us really to tell you the truth, people who want to attack the libertarian conservatives in the party, they need to realize the republican party is big enough to win right now. we need more people than less people. jason dufner tells us about good morning. we have gray skies in the area and rain in

8:42 am
>> yeah. i was using this experience that time to help me out. i was confident this time around and really be aggressive and give myself a chance to at least win that a-a amazing feat. >> and aggressive means what? >> i think sometimes, guys get in the lead sand get passive and play conservative. you get away from your game plan that maybe got you to that point. i really wanted to keep making birdies. and keep trying to widen that gap with the lead that i had. >> how much of this was about redemption? >> you know, there's been a lot of that going on in golf with the majors. you have great players who have failed earlier in their career with the majors. and i kind of kept that in the back of my head that maybe this year could be the year for the pga championship. >> adam scott and rory mcilroy came back. >> you heard jim nance calling you stoic, but spectacular. in the way that jim nance does that. there's a lot made of the way you don't show much emotion on

the course. why is that? >> that's just my personality. i tried to stay true to that. there's a lot of emotions going on inside of me. i'm nervous just like all the other guys. but i just have a better way of hiding it, i think. >> what does it take to shoot a 63 in a major? >> you got to do a lot of great things. guys have rounds like that out on tour where everything seems to go right. everything clicks. my happened to be at this pga championship. >> you thought you could do it. a 62 the first player ever to shoot a 62 at a major? >> that would have been pretty special. like i said earlier, i don't think i've ever been the first to do anything in my life. it's nerve-racking, actually on friday compared to the rest of the week. >> the guy who beat you two years ago was your friend keegan bradley. and he helped make dufnering famous. which has really gone nuts on social media. how did that come about? >> you know i had a charity function that i was doing for a tournament that i won last year.
