♪ now and forevermore... narrator: if animals are our best friends, shouldn't we be theirs? visit your local shelter, adopt a pet. ♪ you'll be in my heart ♪ ♪ no matter what... cbs cares. if you were a hippie in the '60s, you need to know. it's the dawning of the age of aquarius. yeah, and something else that's cool. what? osteoporosis is preventable. all: osteo's preventable? right on! if you dig your bones, protect them.
all: cbs cares! in our cbs news poll out tonight, 36% of americans approve of president obama's handling of terrorism. that is down from 72% right after u.s. forces killed osama bin laden in 2011. only 23% of americans believe the president has a clear plan for dealing with isis. his strategy includes air strikes in iraq and syria, and david martin tells us the latest targets include oil. >> reporter: two air strikes, the most recent over the weekend, have destroyed almost 500 tanker trucks isis uses to smuggle oil and sell it on the black market. by one estimate, the attacks have destroyed roughly half the trucks isis uses to bring in $1 million a day in revenues.
until now the u.s. has not gone after the tankers for fear of killing the civilian drivers. in these strikes, u.s. planes first dropped leaflets warning the drivers. and then they conducted strafing runs to scare them away. the u.s. has also loosened the rules on civilian casualties. previously a strike would be called off if any civilians were spotted in the area. for these, more than five civilians had to be in the target area before the strike would be called off. the french have now begun launching strikes against isis from an aircraft carrier in the eastern mediterranean. and the russians have fired a total of 42 cruise missiles against isis targets in syria. cutting off oil revenues will degrade isis, but the quickest way to defeat it on the battlefield is to seize its capital of raqqah in syria. the red line on this pentagon map shows how close u.s.-backed fighters are to raqqah, just 30 miles to the north and 100 miles to the east. u.s. officials say the fighters
to the north don't have enough combat power to take raqqah and the fighters to the east must first push south to seize a key road junction before advancing on raqqah. the fighters will be assisted by 50 american green berets, but they are not expected to get there until next month. think of it as a race against time, scott. can u.s.-backed fighte seize raqqah before isis can launch another terrorist attack against the west? >> david martin reporting from the pentagon tonight. david, thank you. in the presidential campaign, donald trump's recollection of 9/11 is being called into question. rival ben carson backed him up until he didn't. nancy cordes has that. >> i watched in jersey city, new jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. >> reporter: donald trump's claim that he saw footage of muslim americans celebrating 9/11 attacks was disputed today
by fact checkers, by new jersey officials and by law enforcement. but not by his closest rival, dr. ben carson. >> did you see that happening, though, on 9/11? >> i saw the film of it, yes. >> in new jersey? >> yes. >> reporter: carson later apologized, saying he was thinking of celebrations abroad, not at home. but both he and trump argue muslim-americans should be monitored more heavily. it's a marked departure from the republican party's last president. >> islam is peace. >> reporter: who quoted from the koran after 9/11 and called for tolerance. >> these acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of the islamic faith. >> reporter: fran townsend was president bush's homeland security adviser. why was it important for him to say something like that? >> we have gulf arab partners, in muslim countries, who have helped in the war on terror. we need those folks to
understand, this is not a war with their religion. >> reporter: she argues republicans should welcome well- vetted syrian refugees to the u.s. for one key reason: >> these refugees who are fleeing isis who don't agree with them are a potential real treasure trove of intelligence. >> reporter: townsend said she's surprised president obama himself hasn't made that case. scott, our poll shows as of right now, half of americans agree with trump that the refugees should not be let in. >> nancy cordes, thanks. iran has sentenced "washington post" reporter jason rezaian to prison, but it did not say for how long. rezaian is a dual citizen of u.s. and iran. he was arrested in july of last year and charged with spying on iran's nuclear program. rezaian's family and the "post" have vehemently denied that allegation. today one of america's largest companies, pfizer pharmaceutical, said it will
merge with a rival and move to ireland to beat u.s. taxes. the merger with allergan will form the world's biggest drug company if government regulators approve. the move will cut the corporate taxes by hundreds of millions of dollars. this is the biggest move yet in a trend of u.s. companies moving their headquarters abroad. drivers are paying some of the lowest prices for gasoline in a long time. the nationwide average tonight is $2.07 a gallon. that's down 75 cents from a year ago. aaa predicts that could drop below $2 by christmas. stormy weather could interfere with a lot of travel plans for drivers. and it seemed obvious the quarterback suffered a concussion, so why did they let him keep playing? good thing geico offers affordable renters insurance. with great coverage it protects my personal belongings

st. louis rams trying to mount a game-winning drive, what happened to quarterback case keenum seemed unmistakable. his head slammed the turf. he seized his helmet in pain. he couldn't even get up with assistance. >> the helmet to the ground. one of the troubling spots when we talk about concussions at the nfl level. >> reporter: but keenum never left the field. >> it seems obvious to everybody. >> reporter: dr. douglas smith with the university of pennsylvania studies brain injury and repair. >> we want to take them out of play and keep an eye on them to make sure they don't go back into the game before it's too soon. >> reporter: the nfl has a concussion protocol to handle these exact situations. it spells out concussion signals as well as health markers required to resume play and avoid further injury. there is also now an athletic trainer above the field with the authority to stop a game at any time. commissioner roger goodell told "60 minutes" just last week he believes the league is safer than ever. >> i do believe it's safer, but injuries are part of active sports.
and they're certainly part of football. football is a contactsport. >> reporter: on sunday, however, after this contact, no one had keenum properly checked off the field until after the game, when a concussion was confirmed. the nfl says tonight it is investigating. rams' coach jeff fisher just held a news conference. he said he didn't see his quarterback stumbling and that the spotter above the field saw a trainer on the field so didn't stop play. he says the trainer was told to leave the field by an nfl official. everyone seems to be pointing in a different direction, so, scott, tonight, a decent amount for the league to sort out. >> jeff, thank you very much. some rough weathers on the menu for millions this thanksgiving, that story is next.
the shooting of a good samaritan in new orleans. surveillance video shows a man dragging a woman toward a car last friday when medical student peter gold stepped in, but he was shot in the stomach. the gunman tried to fire again, but the weapon jammed. gold is expected to make a full recovery. today police arrested euric cain. he is charged with attempted murder. a big helping of wintry weather is on the way for millions just in time for the holiday. eric fisher is our chief meteorologist at our boston station wbz. eric, who is going to get hit? >> reporter: well, scott, good evening to you. we'll be watching a storm starting to move ashore over the next 24 hours, but for the early travelers, we're off to a great start on this holiday week. coast to coast, wall to wall, pretty quiet conditions. however, things will start to change. good news is for anyone watching in the east tonight, quiet and chilly in the northeast over
these next two days, big travel ones. across the southeast, quiet, seasonal temperatures, and some rain showers start to move into the upper midwest by the time we head into wednesday. the storm in question here is the one in the west. this is one that will bring some significant snow and a lot of cold over these next 48 hours. that storm diving down across the west coast and then pushing its way inland. so we head into the day on wednesday, plenty of mountain snow to go along with it, especially in the sierras, the southern cascades could pick up over a foot of snowfall. this is a storm system we'll watch into the middle of the country for thanksgiving itself. we'll have quiet weather on both of the coasts, but it's right in the middle that we have a mess. as thanksgiving moves along, heavy rain breaks out along the southern plains. ice and snow on the back side. scott, this is a storm system to keep a close eye on for the holiday itself. >> eric fisher, wbz. eric, thanks very much. in a moment, the worst traffic jams in america.
finally tonight, for many getting to work is a full-time job. and a report out today names the 50 worst traffic bottlenecks in america. number one is in chicago. total traffic and weather network is providing us with this live picture. and here's transportation correspondent kris van cleave. >> reporter: every day drivers in chicago collectively spend nearly 65,000 hours stuck in this. >> i give myself about an hour and a half to get to work. >> reporter: after chicago the next six worst bottlenecks in the country are all in los angeles. in downtown, a two and a half mile stretch of the harbor freeway has 12 on and off ramps and two major interchanges,
making it a magnet for traffic. [horn honks] the worst bottleneck on the east coast is the lincoln tunnel connecting new york city and new jersey. altogether drivers there experience 3.4 million hours of delays each year, but the bottlenecks aren't just in megacities. austin comes in at number ten. norfolk, virginia, also made the list. secretary of transportation anthony foxx. >> i think what people should think about is that the traffic they're experiencing on thanksgiving holiday could be traffic every day over the next 30 years if we're not careful. we need to make the investments in our infrastructure. >> reporter: investments in solutions like coordinated traffic lights, metered on- ramps and high-occupancy toll lanes. commuter jose vasquez uses an app on his smartphone called waze to try to avoid the worst of the back-ups. >> it will tell you which one not to take, but, you know, it's going to be the lesser of the two evils. >> reporter: but there's hope. the woodrow wilson bridge
outside of washington, d.c., dropped off the list after it was rebuilt to better handle the traffic. and however bad the commute gets, it is still better than this mind-boggling 50-lane traffic jam in october outside beijing lasting for hours. all that time stuck in traffic translates to $2.4 billion in lost productivity annually and, scott, researchers say if you're able to fix even 30 of those bottlenecks, you save an estimated 35 million gallons of gas a year. >> kris van cleave on the road for us tonight. kris, thanks very much. if you'd like to see if your city is one of the 50 worst bottlenecks, go to our facebook page. you'll find it at facebook.com/cbseveningnews. that's the "cbs overnight news" for this tuesday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back later for the morning news and of course, "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm scott pelley.
this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the "overnight news." i'm anna warner. the capital of belgium remains on lockdown today for fear of a terrorist strike similar to the one that gripped paris more than a week ago. here in the u.s., it's thanksgiving week, where nearly 47 million americans will travel to their holiday feast. security is tight at the bridges, tunnels and airports. jeff pegues reports from reagan national. >> reporter: u.s. officials say there's no specific or credible threat against the u.s., do not expect to breeze through security at the nation's airports. there will be tougher screening in place, even for prechecked passengers. tsa workers will be taking more time going through bags. the holiday travel season begins amid heightened security across
the country. >> something like paris happens, people may be a little more nervous. >> reporter: following the terrorist attacks in paris, false bomb threats diverted at least three flights. several other flights have been disrupted after passengers voiced security concerns. sunday, officers escorted three men off a southwest airlines flight for suspicious behavior. they were later cleared. >> people are a little on edge with everything going on. >> reporter: more than a week after the attacks in france, major u.s. cities remain on alert. on sunday, the new york city police department ran an active shooter drill in the city's subway system. the training, which took nearly a year to plan, involved a target in a suicide vest. >> in the scenario, the first command may be drop the gun and put your hands up. in the suicide belt scenario, that might not be enough. >> reporter: secretary of homeland security, jeh johnson.
>> it's important for all americans to know that your law enforcement, national security, intelligence communities are continually on the job, working overtime, to ensure that the homeland is safe. >> reporter: members of congress have been critical of tsa in recent months after an undercover investigation revealed major gaps in security. so this week will be a test, coming so soon after the paris attacks. but the agency says it is up to the job. a cbs news poll shows americans are split, mostly along party lines, over whether or not to accept syrian refugees. 68% of republicans say refugees from syria should not be allowed into the u.s. 63% of democrats say they should be allowed, as long as they pass a security clearance. but 78% of all those surveyed say there must be stricter screening of those refugees.
the texas governor isn't waiting for new screening procedures. he's ordered volunteer groups to stop bringing the migrants to the lonestar state. nearly 200 have already arrived this year. manuel bojorquez visited one syrian family who got in under the wire. >> reporter: greg abbott was among the first governors to stop accepting syrian refugees, after the paris attacks, citing security concerns. as that debate rages on, syrian refugees already in the united states are trying to adjust to a new life as best they can. the playground where faez takes his family is a world away of his hometown of darwa, syria. he said this is what his old neighborhood looks like now. he and his wife, they asked us not to reveal their last names, fled in 2013 to jordan where they applied for refugee status in the u.s., a two-year process.
this february they moved near dallas and are raising two daughters, an infant and toddler. he works at walmart and is learning to speak english. >> i'm happy because i live in america. >> reporter: but they also feel misjudged after the paris attacks, and after texas recently ordered volunteer organizations that help resettle refugees from syria to discontinue those plans immediately. do you think the process you went through is enough to possibly root out anyone who could try to be coming in to carry out terror here? "it's impossible that any terrorist can come to america through any refugee program. there are six or seven months for a background check." many of the attackers in paris were french nationals and lived in belgium. however, one bomber had a fake syrian passport and travelled with the waves of refugees that overwhelmed europe in recent months.
in texas, there is another worry, the border with mexico. three syrian families arrived there last week and surrendered to immigration officials, apparently seeking asylum. on saturday, about a dozen people, some armed with long guns, protested in front of a mosque outside dallas. >> we're here protesting syrian refugees coming to america, protesting the islamization of america. >> reporter: the next day, when we asked to spend more time with the family, they declined, citing concerns over their safety. there have been rallies here in support of refugees, as well. while the governor of texas said states do have the legal authority to bar refugees from coming in, officials in washington say states cannot dictate federal policy. there's an arrest tonight in the shooting of a good samaritan in new orleans. surveillance video shows a man dragging a woman toward a car last friday, when a medical student stepped in. but he was shot in the stomach. the gunman tried to fire again,
but the weapon jammed. gold is expected to make a full recovery. today, police arrested euric cain. he is charged with attempted murder. three days ago, this quite new orleans street was the scene of a violent crime. peter gold saw something and pulled up to help. he got out of his vehicle and ran to the aid of a woman about to be kidnapped. for trying to help, he ended up being shot. it was all captured on surveillance camera. i want to warn you, what you are about to see does contain violence. >> male shot in the stomach. >> reporter: police say the suspect in friday's shooting has been identified as 21 euric cain of new orleans. the two drift out of frame as medical student peter gold stops to help. seconds later, cain is seen holding a gun to gold's head. police say cain demanded money, then shot gold in the stomach.
the 25-year-old can be seen lying on the sidewalk as cain attempts to shoot him in the head, but the gun jams and the suspect runs off. a neighbor witnessed the events as they unfolded. >> i heard a guy yelling outside, i don't have anymore money. he was laying on the ground, then i saw him trying to execute him. >> reporter: sunday, officials saiden suv driven by cain had been recovered. cain had been arrested november 2nd for possession of a stolen cell phone taken in a carjacking. >> it is clear this is a dangerous individual who doesn't value lives of others. >> reporter: gold, a fourth year medical student at tulane university, remains hospitalized. in a statement to cbs, his family wrote in a statement, peter continues to improve and remains in guarded condition. we ask that everyone respect our family's need for privacy during this difficult time. >> this type of violence is not going to stand in our city. we said enough is enough. everybody that commits a crime like this will be tracked and
the animation studio pixar has a new movie coming out called "the good dinosaur." it was 20 years ago that "toy story" changed the way we look at animation. john blackstone paid a visit to the pixastudios and the people who make the magic. >> i am buzz light year. i come in peace. >> reporter: when buzz, woody and the gang were first brought to light 20 years ago, they seemed more realistic than anything previously created in an animated movie. >> please be careful. you don't want to be in the way when my laser goes off. >> reporter: it was the result of more than four years of work at pixar animation studios. pete was one of the animators changing the way movies was made. >> you would come to work every day and somebody would have
figured something else out that you hadn't seen before. >> to infinity and beyond! >> reporter: "toy story's" animators went beyond what had done before by creating on computers. but getting closer to reality was more challenging than they expected. >> in "toy story," almost every scene we would go oh, that's going to be really hard. just as a simple example, if you look at mom and daddy, the clothes are very tight fitting so we don't have to deal with wrinkles and fold and movement. this was a new toy. i was a kid who enjoyed figuring out how things worked. >> reporter: pixar was owned by somebody else who liked to figure things out, steve jobs. when "toy story" was released, charlie rose talked to jobs about his role. >> the things we do at pixar, these are team sports. >> reporter: in 1986, jobs bought pixar for $5 million from george lucas. galen susman has worked on every
"toy story" sequel. >> there's no way "toy story" would have been made without steve. he had the belief and passion and gump shun to fight for us to get the resources we needed. >> reporter: the studio and its arsenal of films about talking fish, robots, and a rat who likes to cook has received massive crital acclaim and collected 12 academy awards. but when pixar had no movie ready for release in 2014, some in the industry wondered whether the studio lost its edge. then came the release this year of "inside out." >> what the heck is that? >> who puts broccoli on pizza? >> that's it, i'm done. >> congratulations, san francisco, you ruined pizza. >> reporter: so far the movie about the inner work rgs of an
11-year-old girl's mind has earned more than $800 million. a lot seemed to be riding on it. it had been a while since pixar put a movie out. >> it was never a guaranty that something as bizarre and abstract as going inside the adolescence's mind would resonate with people, make sense to people, connect with people. who knew? >> reporter: in spite of the animation technology, pixar's films still start the old way. >> yeah, it still starts with a drawing. >> reporter: kelsey mann is the story supervisor on "the good dinosaur" being released this week. from these drawings and the imagination of all those working at a movie there, the story takes tape. >> i can turn all around and he can be like, what's going on, what? >> reporter: and hundreds of
those drawings for -- >> hundreds of drawings just for a couple minutes. >> reporter: the creativity of pixar's animators extends to their offices. this is your office? >> this is our office. >> reporter: simon's work space appears to be part of a 1930s aircraft crashed in the jungle. >> the backstory is we were the scientists on board and now we're trying to find our way out of the jungle. >> reporter: it strikes me around pixar, everybody is telling a story all the time. >> we're trying, yeah. >> reporter: this marks the first time pixar is releasing two movies in one year. >> it was 100 degrees in the shade. >> reporter: originally scheduled to be in theaters two years ago, the movie was delayed by production problems. 2013, peter replaced the movie's first director. it's had some painful moments over many years now. >> that's right. a lot of the films go through
these challenges of trying to make the story right. when the problems arise, just like a good parent, if there are issues, you have to bring in help. >> reporter: "the good dinosaur" is his debut as a director. but in 15 years at pixar, he's filled many other jobs, from animation to voiceover work. >> my name is russell. >> reporter: here he was the inspiration for the wilderness explorer, russell. >> are you in need of assistance today, sir? >> reporter: when you're in a story room, everyone is going to draw you. >> the guys would draw me like a giant thumb with a hat. >> reporter: more than 90 animators worked on "the good dinosaur." >> we start with posing. >> reporter: three seconds of animation takes about a week to complete. >> animation in general is frame by framework. there's a personality to make these things. you have to have patience and have long vision. it's all about the long game.
>> reporter: in the 20 years since "toy story," pixar has been playing that long game. >> to infinity and beyond! >> reporter: and winning. john blackstone, california. axe dry spray antiperspirant. why are you touching your armpit? i was just checking to see if it's dry. don't, that's weird. the first ever dry spray antiperspirant from axe. was as long as the boat. for seven hours, we did battle. until i said... you will not beat... meeeeee!!! greg. what should i do with your fish? gary. just put it in the cooler. if you're a fisherman, you tell tales. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. put the fish in the cooler!
