captioning funded by cbs good morning. home for the holidays, after more than eight years, 4,400 american lives and more than a trillion dollars, president obama says u.s. troops in iraq will be home by the end of the year, but the decision does not come without risk. after gadhafi, liberation will be declared tomorrow, but soon the celebrations end and the business of governing begins. after 42 years of being ruled by a tyrant, can libyans unite and create a stable country?
8:01 am
and dear carrie. dyan cannon spent three years married to cary grant and now she is opening up about those turbulent years. she joins us "early" saturday morning, october 22nd, 2011. the sun is peaking through the clouds over new york city. we are here joining us on a saturday. welcome to "the early show." i'm rebecca jarvis. good morning. >> i'm russ mitchell. good morning on this beautiful saturday here. welcome back, my friend. >> welcome back to you, my friend. we had last week off and well rested and ready to rock is out today. >> after more than eight years of war costing the lives of more than 4,400 troops, president obama says u.s. troops in iraq will be home for the holidays but the decision does not come without risk. cbs news correspondent wyatt andrews is he is white house with the very latest.
8:02 am
>> reporter: russ, good morning. the president this is both a success and a failure all at the same time. a success because after those eight years of war, u.s. military involvement in iraq is over. but it's a failure because a complete withdrawal of those forces is not exactly what the white house or the pentagon had wanted. >> today, i can report that as promised, the rest of our troops in iraq will come home by the end of the year. after nearly nine years, america's war in iraq will be over. >> reporter: the war began with shock and awe. it toppled dictator saddam hussein and it cost $805 billion but took the lives of 4,500 u.s. troops and it left more than 39 thousand wounded. today, almost 39,000 troops are still in iraq and the question in negotiations was how many should stay to train iraqi
8:03 am
security forces against potential terror plots, especially from iraq. the u.s. wanted those forces immune from criminal prosecution but the prime minister could not agree and the troops are coming home. to republicans in congress, the withdrawal is a mistake that strengthens iran. senator john mccain called it a strategic victory for our enemies in the middle east especially the iranian regime but the president says the pullback fulfills a campaign promise in 2008 and his claim of success will become a campaign issue in 2012. >> the tide of war is receding. the draw down in iraq allowed us to refocus our fight against al qaeda and achieve major victories against this leadership, including osama bin laden. >> the draw down will mean 16,000 american aid workers and diplomats and private contractors will remain in iraq
8:04 am
but the president has ordered the military home for the holidays. russ? >> wyatt andrews at the white house, thank you very much. joining us for a closer look is retired general marks. good morning to you. >> good morning to you. >> from your vantage point, is leaving iraq at this point a good idea? >> it's not a good idea and an unfortunate decision that the president made on several levels. strategically it gives the initiative to the iranian regime tehran must be excited about the news the u.s. is going to withdrawal. the u.s. will still have a very robust presence in the region but we won't have boots on the ground in iraq so we will still be able to aassist with surveillance on the border between iran and iraq which i think is critical and able to share that intelligence with the iraqis. i would also suggest we are going to have a very strong military foreign presence and
8:05 am
probably leave equipment behind for the iraqis and they will continue to, i hope, buy their equipment from us so we can maintain that type of maintenance sport and training embedded capabilities. >> general, let me ask you, what is your immediate concern? you say it's not a good idea. immediately, what do you think the biggest problem would be? >> the biggest concern right now is the border between iraq and iran is as poorest as it can be. with the training of the iraqi forces by the u.s., that continues to be -- would continue to be a focus and would get attention. the concern that i have overall, russ, is that in order to grow a military, you have to start with a noncommissioned officer. that takes about 8 to 9 years. the iraqis are not there yet. they have pockets of capabilities in that military and that needs to continue to be focused on and to receive the type of training. >> you say from a military standpoint. in your mind, this doesn't make sense in your mind. why do you think the president made this decision?
8:06 am
>> i think many would say he didn't have any choice, that maliki could not get his government in line. what we pay our commander in chief to do is to represent the united states best interest and that needed to be a very aggressive diplomatic effort with baghdad and really work hard to ensure that we could maintain a longer relationship with the iraqis. they have now asked us to depart. they will continue to be our friends, i can guarantee you. they are not right now our allies. they have asked us to leave. we should have presence on the ground to continue to help them grow their military forces. they need to be able to shore that up. >> you touched on the u.s. role in the future even though the troops won't be there. how long do you think the u.s. will be involved in iraq in some way or another? >> i think it's probably forever. we will have a relationship with them that is very, very deep. unfortunately, we won't have a presence on the ground. we probably will have a presence in kuwait, pretty significant,
8:07 am
and gives them an over the horizon capability to respond. i think the iraqis will be our friend but right now they are not acting like friends. >> thank you, general. >> thank you, russ. we turn to libya where the ruling national transitional council plans to take the next step after the death of dictator moammar gadhafi. cbs news correspondent elizabeth palmer is in the libyan capital in tripoli and good morning to you, elizabeth. >> reporter: good morning. we have just heard in the last few moments that libya's interim prime minister says he will step down effective today. it is something he said he would do once the country was fully liberated. the death of gadhafi has allowed the transitional national council to declare that that is the case. in fact, they are going to have a formal ceremony to mark that tomorrow in benghazi. and elections are slated for
8:08 am
some time next summer but to get from there to here will be daunting. first start, the country is a wash in weapons. they fought bravely, if chaotically to overthrow gadhafi but working as libya's interim force and some act like gangs above the law. they won't want to give that up without a fight, especially to civilian politicians they might not agree with. in libya's favor it has a population that is committed to delivering a modern muslim democracy. thank god gadhafi was captured and killed. god willing, we will begin a new era of freedom after 42 years of oppression. late into last night, libyans partied. as long as he was alive, gadhafi cast a shadow over their dreams of stability and more freedom.
8:09 am
now he is definitely dead and they can stop worrying. the libyan government is still worrying about it, though. as far as we know, gadhafi still hasn't been buried. the government doesn't want any grave to become kind of a shrine or a rallying point for violent insurgency so that is a tricky political decision. as far as we know, they are still waiting. >> a lot left open there. elizabeth palmer in libya, thank you for joining us. for more on what is next for libya and other dictators in the middle east we turn to jamie rubin. great to have you with us. >> nice to be here. >> liz raised this in her report. it's easy to unite around a common enemy but much harder to unite around a common objective. are they going to be able to create a new democracy that is stable in libya now? >> not quickly and not easily. but i think the momentum is certainly on the right side. there has been a lot of goodwill in the international community.
8:10 am
people in the region urging the success of this government. they are going to get help from abroad. they have got oil resources on their side. so the momentum is good. unfortunately, for four decades, they have lived under this dictatorship and there are no institutions, no civil society, no rule of law, none of the things that we in the west are used to that we call government exists there. it's a tribal structure and if those tribes can find a way to share power, things can move forward successfully. >> you raised the point about the tribal structure and libya, there are more tribes in libya than really any other place in the arab world. for everything he did, gadhafi was able to keep some level of decorum among these tribes. what does it take for the next round of leadership to do that and can they? >> we don't know whether they will succeed in having the kind of stable democratic government
8:11 am
that the world would like to see. they certainly have started off reasonably well. they gathered together all of their opposition forces into some form of unified transadditional council. they fought a war together. they had, as you said, a single objective of getting rid of gadhafi. that's easier than building. so it's going to be difficult and the west is going to have to provide help if we want it to succeed. their neighbors will have to provide help if they want it to succeed. we don't want to see it devolve into a situation one part of the country is fighting against tribes from another tribe or different tribes are fighting or islamic elements get the upper hand. i feel optimistic about libya because of the goodwill that exists in the world, the success of their revolution, the way in which the world united behind them. but it's going to be a really, really long road for them to get to a stable government. >> i want to quickly get to the neighborhood because we have already seen images coming our syria with the people of syria
8:12 am
likening their leader assad to gadhafi waving the libya flag in their town suggesting perhaps we will see another overthrow. do you think it's likely in both there, as well as in yemen? >> syria and libya are very different places. the world is not likely to unite around the idea of supporting the syrian opposition because china and russia are determined to be on the side of the dictator there, mr. assad. the outside world is divided and the internal situation is far, far digfferent. i think what we are likely to see in syria is a long term low level conflict where people are fighting in the streets, where brave young syrians are prepared to fight for their freedom but the outside world has not figured out a way to help them. >> we will continue this conversation undoubtedly. jamie rubin, thank you for joining us. time now to turn to campaign 2012. the republican presidential
8:13 am
candidates battling to challenge president obama. joining us now are robert zimmerman democratic strategist and ed rollins, republican strategist and former campaign manager for michele bachmann. good morning. >> good morning. >> talk about national security in a moment. let's talk about michele bachmann the latest from her campaign. word her entire new hampshire has quit and her campaign manager ed rollins quit. look who is here today. is her campaign becoming unglued? >> i think she has the focus in iowa. if she doesn't win there, she has a ticket out. the campaign narrow down to raising money which romney and perry have and the others have to win somewhere. >> you leave, the staff quits. what does that say to folks who supporter? >> i think plenty of supporters out there. hers and my difference had nothing whether she can or cannot win. iowa has to be her focus.
8:14 am
>> president obama on his watch, osama bin laden has been killed and gadhafi now killed and troops coming home from iraq. as far as campaign 2012 is concerned and the issue of national security, can the republicans touch him on this? >> not only can they not touch him, if you watch their attacks on him, the comments, for example, from mitt romney, the obama campaign directly engaged and responded to the attacks are so partisan and so shrill it is out of the mainstream of the american people. president obama implemented the bush withdrawal program. when this plan was announced by the bush administration you didn't here mitt romney or john mccain or any of the candidates talk about this premature and wait until the generals have to say and they accepted it. now obama but the successful in place they are turning around in a partisan way that undermines the men and women in battle. >> ed, do you think? >> unless something happens the eight or nine months we
8:15 am
withdrawal. more this election is about the economy. clearly the foreign policy is using a american issue not a republican or democrat issue. the candidates have to attempt to draw the line. i think we ought to applaud our american troops who have done an extraordinary job there. we weren't welcome any more there. i think it was time for us to leave. >> herman cain the game with the ball and seems to be the game of kill the man with the ball. are his 15 minutes up? >> not right now. i think he has the ability to continue on even though he won't have the resources. i don't believe he'll be the nominee of the republican party. >> herman cain is making mitt romney look consistent. taking both sides of the issue of negotiating with terrorists and redefined his tax plan and taken both sides of the abortion battle. he is just out there selling books and building up speaking fees. >> ask you about the debate but we are out of time so more debates to come. >> unfortunately, many, many
8:16 am
more. >> thank you both very much. now for the rest of this morning's headlines, let's go over to cbs news correspondent and one news anchor and our good pal, betty nguyen. >> all of those. good morning, russ and to you. ohio is cracking down on private ownership of exotic wild animals. this after police shot and killed about 50 of them last week in zanesville. their owner released them from their cages and took his own life. the governor john kasich signed temporary measures and permanent ones are being drafted. berkeley, california, residents are on edge this morning following three more aftershocks just after midnight. two stronger quakes hit the area thursday. there are no reports of damage or injuries from any of the five tremors. ironically, this is the 22nd anniversary of a earthquake in the bay area during the world series that killed 63 people. a search for a missing baby girl in kansas city, missouri is
8:17 am
again focusing on the family home. police say an fbi cadaver dog consented a dead person there earlier this week. there recently is disturbed soil in the backyard but attorneys for lisa irwin's parents say there could be other reasons for the dog's reaction and that the parents are cooperating with police. the baby was first reported missing two and a half weeks ago. on wall street, the market has staged a major comeback. the dow rose 267 points yesterday, closing just over 11,000800. it has gained nearly 11% since october 3rd when itt sank to it lowest point of the year. strong corporate earnings and a sense that europe may solve its debt crisis has given investors new confidence. listen up. britain's prince harry apparently is smitten with a california girl. he is here in the states for military training and during time off he met a 26-year-old cocktail waitress named jessica
8:18 am
donaldson. it's reported she looks a lot like like harry's sister-in-law, ka kate. did you see see that. >> i'm picking up on the tattoo. >> just a little bit. >> just a little bit! >> tiny. in terms of the weather headlines it's really a classic fall pattern out there. it's a quiet time of the year. much of the nation dry. a few areas have some precipitation. nothing big i'll point out. no big organized weekend sforms for anybody. this is a bit of precipitation out there. no big problems happening. the big change will take place as you get into the mid week because we are watching a strong cold front to come through the pacific northwest and the northern rockies. i think you could be seeing snow by tuesday or wednesday.
8:19 am
that's a look at the weather across the nation. now here's a look at what's going on outside your window. make it a great saturday. a new biography of the late steve jobs is about to hit the stands and it offers unique insight into the life of the former apple ceo. "60 minutes" steve kroft saturday down recently with the author walter isaacsson and talked about the jobs' controversial decision to delay treatment to treat his cancer. >> they do a biopsy and say this is good. slow growing 5% of pancreatic
8:20 am
cancer that can be treated. but steve jobs goes to spiritualists and trying to do it make role biotically and he doesn't get it operated on. >> why doesn't he get it operated on immediately? >> i asked him that. he said i didn't want my body to be open. i didn't want to be violated in that way. he is regretful about it. his wife is a very solid, decent person but says, the body is there to serve the spirit. you should get this operated on. soon everybody is telling him quit trying to treat with these roots and vegetables and things opinion just get operated on but he does it nine months later. >> too late? >> well, one assumes it's too late because by the time they operate had him, they notice that it has spread to the tissues around the pancreas. >> how could such a smart man do such a stupid thing? >> i think he kind of felt if you ignore something, if you
8:21 am
don't want something to exist, you can have magical thinking. it had worked for him had the past. he regret it. >> hors to discuss jobs' choices is dr. ready. you watched this. it's shocking to hear he didn't get it treated. i now it's hard to discuss because you everything about steve jobs going into it but do you think things may have got different had he had it treated earlier? >> it's important to discuss the treatment he had. had a very different pancreatic cancer. adenoid cancer is seven months overall. but like steve jobs type of cancer, they can live for years. it's a slow growing cancer. i don't know what his images showed at the time this was diagnosed but i can say on a
8:22 am
statistical basis most of our patients even when be think we are taking them to surgery for a cure, they recur. most of the patients have this cancer come back. having said that surgery is the only option for cure if it hasn't spread. >> you're saying he could walk away cancer-free had he done this perhaps but it could have come back as well? >> exactly. and also it's -- this is a cancer because it's so slow growing often we take them to surgery even when it has spread but it's not for curative intent but to take out as much cancer as possible. i don't know in fin would know if his cancer was curative. most of our patients have the cancer at a microscopic level at another place and probably would have come back. >> as a doctor, you what i do this about alternative methods? because many people do, when they get that prognosis, they do pursue them. >> right. so as an oncologist, i studied
8:23 am
nutrition as an undergrad and i think it's important for prevention. cancer oncology treatment is based on data and evidence. no data whatsoever to support the use of nutrition alternative therapies or vitamins to treat cancer. it just doesn't help. we wish it could. it doesn't. in fact, we have a couple of studies to show that iv vitamins can make patients with cancer do worse? >> really? doctor, we appreciate it. >> my pleasure to be here. thank you so much. >> you can steve kroft's interview with steve jobs biographer on "60 minutes" sunday night on cbs. we will be right back.
8:24 am
8:25 am
russ, what do you think about your st. louis cards these days? >> 1-1. >> tied with the texas rangers in the world series. the big news out of st. louis is this guy, albert pujols. arguably, he is the best player in the league. the guy is fantastic. he has been with the cardinals his entire career. it is payday. he is up for a big raise. the big question can st. louis afford him? is he going somewhere else? he is really popular in st. louis and does a a lot of things for the community. >> you love this guy?
8:26 am
>> he's a great guy. a great guy. we will talk to

8:31 am
growing anger at big banks. dollars for doctors. are drug companies influencing doctors to push their pills? it's all coming up on our "healthwatch." we begin with what they are calling the st. louis blues. the past 11 years, cardinals slugger albert pujols has hit his way into the record books and also become beloved in his adopted city for his charitable work off the diamond. his team is back in the world series playing some team called the texas rangers. but st. louis fans are worried his days as a cardinal may be about to end. >> that one is hit high and deep into left field by the rookie pujols. >> reporter: since entering the majors in 2001, albert pujols has dominated baseball. >> home run! >> reporter: accomplish be something no player in history has ever achieved. batting over .300 with more than 30 home runs and a hundred rbis in each of the first ten years of his career. even more impressive may be pujols, the man, as a "60 minutes" correspondent bob simon
8:32 am
found out at the he caught up with the star at his annual at for downs syndrome. >> tuxedo, nice dress. like they want to go all night until the next day and don't want the day to be over. >> reporter: and neither did albert. every kid wanted to dance with albert and he never said no. by the end of the evening, he looked like he had just finished a double-header in august. >> must be the highlight of the year for them? >> and for me too. any time i'm around them, i enjoy it and have a great time. >> albert! >> reporter: fans have reveled in watching pujols the player carry not just the cardinals but the entire city on his back. as the world series shifts from st. louis to texas, pujols may have played his last game in the city that can't live without him. the 31-year-old future hall of famer has asked for a ten-year contract worth at least $230
8:33 am
million. and the smaller market cards might not be able to hold off the big market teams desperate for his services. >> go, cardinals! >> reporter: fans in the city famous for its gateway arch hope that pujols takes less to stay in st. louis and take comfort in knowing pujols will bend over backwards for those he cares about. once again, bob simon. >> reporter: albert quietly left houston's ballpark and went to the texas children hospital. he heard a 13-year-old boy was there who couldn't make it to the game because he had a malignant brain tumor. albert came with a gift for brandon johnson. it was the bat that had what kind that 400th homer five nights earlier. he signed it, said a prayer, stayed for an hour. brandon is still with us and the bat is still with him. he hangs onto it the way he hangs on to life. because of his surgery, it's not easy for him to express what that visit and that bat mean to
8:34 am
him. do you remember what you felt when he walked into the door? >> i got real happy. >> reporter: albert did not come to see brandon with a gaggle of photographers. it was not a publicity stunt. albert pujols has shown us many things since he came to america, becoming a great baseball player is only one of them. >> for more on albert pujols, let's turn to brian burnwell who with the st. louis dispatch. he is in arlington where betty guyen's rangers take on the cardinals tonight in game three of the world series. the world series is tied at one game apiece. in your mind, where does albert pujols rank in terms of the best all-time players? >> you know what? tony la russa, you always ask him this question and he has a really good response. he says you know what? i don't know if you can qualify and say that he number one or number two or number three, but the fact that he is in the
8:35 am
conversation seems to be pretty good. >> full disclosure from folks who didn't know this. i'm from st. louis and have a take on this as well. brian, how do you think the city of st. louis would react if pujols were to leave town? >> there are not enough bridges or buildings for people to jump off of, quite frankly. this is a big deal. this is a really big deal if he were to leave. >> i know at one time, having grown up there, it's always a small market baseball bat. they don't have the money as the big markets. in the old days the brewery owned the team and give the player brewery distributorship if they played for the cardinals. do you think this is a done deal if that he will stay in st. louis? >> i don't know. when people ask me, to get the answer you need to know a couple of things. number one, does albert pujols want to be considered the highest paid player in baseball? he has never said that. a lot of people have assumed that but he has never said it.
8:36 am
the other thing is, well, if he doesn't want to do that, then is it more important to him to one of those rare franchise icons who was associated throughout his entire career in one place. i don't know whether he can get both in st. louis but i do believe he ought to be able to get both. >> brian, have any other teams expressed interest at this point in pujols? >> well, you know what? technically, they can't do that. you have to assume the good news for st. louis most of the big market teams like the yankees, the red sox, you know, they are not going to be in this bidding. but the wild cards in this are teams like chicago, the chicago cubs, and the washington senators. the senators have shown in recent years they are not afraid to spend big money and you never know what theo epstein is going to do now that he is running the chicago cubs. that, i think, would be the ultimate insult to st. louis for albert to end up in a cubs uniform because, as you know, because you're from st. louis, there is only one thing that the
8:37 am
cardinals hate more than losing and i think it's losing to the cubs. >> i think you're right. brian burwell, my friend, thank you so much. appreciate your joining us. talk to you soon. >> my pleasure. >> 24 minutes before the hour, lonnie quinn is here with another check of the weather. >> i got to tell you after watching that piece i think i have a new major league baseball player who is my favorite. that guy comes across great. a great individual and great ballplayer. talk about great weather. a great fall pattern out there. calm and seasonable conditions for almost the entire u.s. of a. nice fall weekend. talk about where the nice fall colors are. portions of new england and adirondacks, around the great lakes. peak foliage viewing this weekend. if you look at the national satellite and radar picture, it's pretty quiet out there. this is what we expect this time of the year. i talk about seasonable the plaintiffs. northeast 60 degrees and great

8:42 am
organization that helps prepare young people for college and career success and sandy joins us this morning to talk talk about the foundation and the latest news in the financial industry. great to have you with us. >> thank you for being here. thank you. >> this is an organization you founded 30 years ago, 30 plus years ago. >> right. >> you've been very involved in it. what do you think makes the organization successful? >> i think what makes the organization successful is we teach kids about what the world is about today and where there are opportunities. we have mentoring, we have summer internships so that they get to understand that education is going to be the key that opens the door to their financial future, that there's something beyond that entry level job. we teach them to feel good about themselves and we now are in 500 schools and 42 states with 50,000 kids. our graduation rate is over 90%. nearly double what it is in similar schools in the same
8:43 am
community. and about 80% to 83% of these kids go on to college. they do well and much better than other kids from the same community ten years after they have graduated from high school. so we have a program that works. >> you mentioned that people are doing internships, that they are getting experience also outside of the classroom. how do you formulate those relationships with businesses and companies to make sure it's not just a classroom experience? >> well, we have 2,500 companies and government agencies that participate with us in the local communities, so they are the ones that really offer the young people the opportunities and they stay with these young people and it really opens up their eyes to what the world is really about, and if we don't understand that we have to educate our people, america is not going to be the leading country in the world that it is today, and when you look at, for example, engineering, where there is great opportunities, less than 3% of the engineers in the united states come from the minority community, but we are
8:44 am
not educating people about where the jobs are and that is one of the problems why unemployment is so high today. >> i want to get to that high unemployment because that is one of the things driving these "occupy wall street" protests that have been happening all over new york city. do you think the ankle remember towards big banks like citigroup, for example, is merited? >> well, what i really think is that it's time to stop pointing fingers about the past. i think there's plenty of responsibility to go around in what created the problems, especially in the housing market and the mortgage market from regulations, from government, from government agencies, and the financial industry. but i think that we want to get our country moving again and we want to create jobs. we got to start getting people to work together and we will not be able to build this country again unless we get the financial industry to be partners with the government,

in this mornings's healthwatch, dollars for docs. according to an organization pro publica, drug companies are having doctors more than $760 million. that begs the question is your health care being compromised? joining us is a doctor of the consumer reports health rating center. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> overall, do you think these potential financial ties between drug companies and doctors impacts a negative way the kind of medical care we receive? absolutely. money works. doctors are human. doctors who take money from drug companies are more likely to give you an expensive drug or a drug you may not need. >> i'm guessing you would be reluctant to advise someone to go to a doctor who has this type of relationship? i would. the issue is who are you working for? me as the patient or the drug company you're taking money from? >> let's talk about a poll by
8:50 am
consumerreports. nearly 72% of those you talk to believe that pharmaceutical companies have too much influence on the drugs that doctors prescribe. so given this statistic and given what you know, in some cases are doctors not giving patients cheaper alternatives in some cases? >> absolutely. we know from our studies and others that there are still many opportunities for doctors to prescribe generic drugs and they are not doing it and one of the republicans is these financial relationships. >> it's important for patients as you say to keep an eye on what their doctor is doing. you say when people go to the doctor, they should look for three things and then be kind of alerted if they see these things. first of all, they see drug reps in the office. >> that's right. the last time i was in a medical office three drug representatives in the waiting room. i haven't been back. >> free samples. watch out for a lot of those thrown you on? >> that's right. people think a free sample is a good thing. well, the expensive precipitation that follows it,
8:51 am
if it works is not a good thing. it can be, again, much more expensive drug than you may need. >> you also say look for marketing materials. >> that's right. doctors who have relationships with drug companies will often have promotional materials, will have information that they give patients that come from the drug company. you should be weary of that. >> let's say this is a doctor you've been going for a long time and just notice is these things. what questions should you ask? >> first of all, you shouldn't hesitate to ask do you have a relationship with a drug company? is it your policy and your practice to take money from drug companies? more and more, i think, it's good for consumers to ask those kinds of questions and what you should especially ask, though, what are my other options? what are my other options? >> people will see this and start asking those questions, i'm sure. thank you. appreciate it. the bittersweet wedding of cate edwards. today her father, former
