7:03 am
browsing >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" presented by toyota. let's go places. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. >> good morning, charlie. >> congress returns to capitol hill for day two of part shall government shutdown. neither side is ready to compromise compromise. >> concern is growing that it could last four weeks. there's another crucial debate over increasing nation's debt limit. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: norah and charlie, we cannot find a single member or aide up here to give us a plausible scenario for how this ends quickly. republicans feel they can't back down now without serious concessions and democrats think they have the high ground and don't need to negotiate. >> the joint resolution is not agreed to. >> reporter: house republicans tried to restore funding for three parts of the government tuesday night. the district of columbia national parks, and veterans
7:04 am
affairs. >> you don't know? that's where rubber meets the road road. >> reporter: but democrats voted it down. they called it a p.r. stunt. >> don't be fooled by what the republicans are doing tonight. just 19 hours ago they closed down the government. >> reporter: house republicans say they'll only house the fund fully if they get a one-year delay, which requires all americans to buy insurance. on tuesday they begged senate democrats to bargain, eight of them even lining up on one side of a long negotiating table. >> we need a senate democrat to join us. >> reporter: but democrats backed by the president refused. >> they shut down the government over an ideological crusade to deny affordable health care insurance to millions of americans. in other words, they demanded ransom just for doing their job.
7:05 am
>> reporter: how long are you willing to keep the government closed. >> that's a decision we'll have to be forced to made but we're a unified team i'll tell you that. >> reporter: almost. a small group is lashing out. kevin nunez is calling it -- >> there are more choice words i would have for them. you shouldn't go and just take your toys and throw a fit and threaten government shutdown and that's what this strategy is. >> reporter: but right now he is in the distinct minority. more republicans feel that obama care is actually worse for the country than a government shutdown. and so norah and charlie, it only appears that the dynamics of this shutdown will change if there is a huge public bashcklash that forces leaders to get up here and work this out.
7:06 am
>> nancy, thank you. the shutdown is already affecting president obama's schedule. his trip to asia next week has been cut short. major garrett is at the white house. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. the president has had to cancel visits next week to malaysia and the philippines. other parts have been canceled and as disruptive as they have been, many fear this battle over the shutdown is a prelude to the larger more consequential fight. these are two separate issues. one is funding the government on day-to-day basis. that's to end the shutdown. the other is to provide the legal authority to borrow the money they need to finance nearly $7 trillion in debt and avoid a government default. they now wonder how they'll do that until the government's legal borrowing authority expires on october 17th.
7:07 am
now, treasury secretary of state jack lew sent a letter to congress yesterday urging congress to raise the debt ceiling because he said he has no more authority to borrow money to avoid default after october 17th. now, the president today here at the white house meeting at noon with top wall street executives to discuss the economic consequences of a potential default and urge them to encourage the lobbyists to increase without delay. the default would affect the economy in a number of ways. it could lower the u.s.'s rating and possibly lead employers who have just begun hiring workers to tighten their belts. as nancy said charlie and norah, there's no agreement and the question here at the white house is how long can the white house hold onto that position of no negotiations at all. >> thank you, major. some of the most visible signs of the government's shutdown are the national parks
7:08 am
and monuments from the arizona's grand canyon to philadelphia's liberty bell to new york city's statute of liberty. guards are turning away visitors. barriers blocked world war ii memorials yesterday until a group of frustrated veterans - showed up. chip reid has their story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. a group called honor flight network brings world war ii veterans here to washington at no charge to see the world war ii memorial. yesterday they showed up and were told it was closed but they weren't about to let a shutdown get in their way. a care van of ward war 2 veterans a arrived in the nation's capitol tuesday to visit a memorial built in their honor. >> i've been looking forward to seeing this ever since it has been put up. >> reporter: the men and women in their 80s and 90s traveled more than a thousand miles from mississippi to iowa to see the
7:09 am
sight in person but this was as close as they could get. >> it meant great deal for me. i an it is paid coming up here for years and i finally made it and you see what i can see. nothing. >> reporter: the memorial is just one of many government-run sites closed to the public after the congress failed to agree. >> we've been instructed as a federal agency to close our facility and our grounds. >> reporter: but these world war ii vets weren't about to be defeated by a temporary fence and a couple of keepout signs. >> i was ready to get out and move them myself. >> with the help of the members of congress the group pushed through barriers and entered the memorial. >> every now and then you have to ask for forgiveness instead of permission. >> reporter: but even as they got to tour the sight, the congress and shutdown is on their minds. >> i'm disgusted with them. get off your -- and do
7:10 am
something. >> reporter: it's costed $2 million a day and it's expected to cost parks across the nation $76 million a day. charlie and norah? >> great story, chip. thank you. and the long awaited opening of president obama's health care plan had its own issues. they had 3 million visitors in its first 15 hours. they couldn't successfully enroll. at one point the site shut down completely. they're working to fix the problem. the president said glitches and crashes were expected to happen. he compared them to apple's first iphones. israel's president benjamin netanyahu told the u.s. u.n. yesterday he will not let iran have nuclear weapons. >> the only difference between them is this.
7:11 am
ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf's clothing. rouhani is a wolf in sheep's clothing. he fooled the world once. now he thinks he can fool it again. you see, rouhani thinks he can have his yellow cake and eat it too. >> netanyahu's warning comes as the u.s. and iran have their first contact in nations. kopd rice is a cbs news contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> the question is can you believe the iranians and therefore the question is how do you test them? >> you can't believe them or trust them because they have done everything to make sure they can't be trusted. they hid their nuclear program for decades. they have given the international atomic energy agency the runaround. i negotiated myself with the p5
7:12 am
plus 1. you absolutely can't trust them. you can test them. you can say are you willing to give up your nuclear capabilities fully and verifiably and see if they take the deal. let's say the reason the iranians are here now is because that country is suffering. they're going to want relief from the sanctions before they do anything to deserve it. >> but if you read in netanyahu netanyahu's remarks yesterday to the u.n. he mentioned rouhani many times. didn't even talk about the palestinian conflict. does it suggest that israel is concerned about a thawing of relations between u.s. and iran? >> it suggests to me norah, that the israeli prime minister is duly con served about a rush to deal with iran that might not ultimately deal with iran's nuclear program and that he's sending a warning out there that shouldn't be done. >> let me ask you this. very interesting. we just learned rouhani said
7:13 am
they tried to set up the meeting between him and president obama five times and then he rejected it. why would he say that. >> he's trying to show at home he rejected. >> why would president obama ask five times? >> that's something iran would expose that, if indeed it's true. >> you've been at that level. don't you worry when somebody asks five times? >> yes, because it makes the american president look. i would hope that through whatever channels we can, this is no way to get off to a good start with the united states. >> we hear you loud and clear on
7:14 am
trust but verify. in the end do you believe the iranians because of the pressure of sapgss possibly have changed, that that could be a change that could lead to serious negotiations to dismantle? >> i do not think this regime has changed its ambitions. i do thing that this regime realizes that those regimes are perhaps causing the kind of turmoil at home that they cannot tolerate. so by all means test it. but remember you cannot leave the iranians with nuclear capability, leave them with an option for a nuclear weapon later on because you leave them with the ability to reprocess and enrich their uranium. >> i want to turn now what's happening with the shutdown in the foft.government. >> as a citizen, i have to say that this is a pretty ugly sight. i would have hoped our leaders both from the white house and congress could sit in a room and
7:15 am
say here's what we need to do. it doesn't make sense to talk through the media on these issues. get people in the same room. we have a long history in this country of people being able to reach across the aisle, to sit in the same room and to have the good of the country at heart and we're not seeing that right now and think the americans find it appalling. >> but is the country being held hostage because of their desire to cut obama care? >> there are people with a strong view in in some elements of congress. the person that has a strong view. but certainly if they can get particularly the leadership in congress, which i think wants to get the government going again, they should sit in a room and see if they can't come to a conclusion. let's not have this fire fight across the airwaves instead. >> let ee see if they sit in a room together. thank you.
7:16 am
jacksonville international airport is reopened this morning after a bomb scare. they said one of the packages had a destructive component. police took at looeft two men into custody, one id side the airport and the other outside. >> he looked like a normal guy, very calm with his hands behind his back. he wasn't putting up a fight. so he just looked like somebody getting arrested. he almost looked a little bit trunk to me. >> one of the suspects he claimed he had a bomb. there morning there are lingering flight cancellations. her father saved her light. manuel bojorquez is in buena vista vista, colorado. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. gracie johnson is still in the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

8:03 am
there are some house republicans saying it is ooh a bad strategy and not going to do that. right now they're in the distinct minority. the president is going to be talking to business leaders trying to get them on board. they don't feel they need to negotiate. they feel they have the high ground in this standoff. for "cbs this morning," i'm nan says cordes. tell the american people what this is about. what is the fight about to you? what are they doing? >> after so many years they still haven't passed a budget. they're overspending money that we don't have that our children our grandchildren don't have. >> it's frustrating. there used to be more compromise. i want to see spending come down. >> what terrifies me is the take tims. mine what kind of precedent does this set. >> yeah. >> if there's something my

8:08 am
>> some people say you voted on obama care. that discussion has already been had. i think that's the argument of the president. so you're talking about legislation that has been passed. >> well, but wehat we're concerned about is since that ledge hags has been passed there have been hundreds of exceptions put out there. what we've said is congress should live by the same rules as everybody says. that appears to be an even ground and even playing field given that the president eun lat rakely changed the law since it was passed. >> i heard some say if we're not getting paid you all shouldn't get paid either. things would go quick fehr members of korng weren't getting paid during that ordeal. >> i had a difficult discussion with my wife two days ago. i sent a letter over to the clerk of the house and said hold my paycheck until it's resolved. that's not fun for the chavvitz

8:10 am
group, come to the table and ask a discuss. >> the house has spoken more than 40 tights to fund obama care. >> yep. >> it is the law of the land and businesses have to comply with the law, right? >> no, businesses don't. they got an exception. that's our issue. the president unilaterally very very special interests. they don't have to. they should have the same right as businesses. that's the way the law is set up but that's not the wait is right now. >> businesses and individuals are already making plans to comply with the law. why not try and change the law, which is the normal process of legislating. lets get passed. members of congress work to change that over time. why not make that tell solution? well, we can't get to solution
8:11 am
until the senate democrats and the president of the united states himself have a discuss on its. it's harlt to believe, isn't it that day afternoon day he'll look people in the eye and say there's nothing to talk about here. well, there is. at least sit down and have the discussion. it is a beautiful start to this october 2nd with temperatures on the mild side. sitting around 63 degrees at bwi marshall. we have some 50s out in western maryland. boy, is it going to be a beautiful day. on the beach 65 degrees right now in ocean city. highs in the mid 80s. a few upper 80s at the inner harbor. mostly sunny skies. facebook paid $1 million for instagram. we'll ask sheryl sandberg about the changes you can expect coming up on "cbs this morning." jaiks

8:31 am
american network correspondent in the country at the height of last month's crisis. she was just nominated. clarissa ward won two for reporting from syria. joining us is condoleezza rice, a cbs news contributor. good morning to all of you. >> good morning. >> this is good to have you here. >> yes. good to be here. >> let's start with you, the developments, how they're playing out on the rebels' side especially the push and pull of the rebel part on the opposition? >> i think the rebels are highly skeptical about these developments while the rest of the international community is very excited with the chemical weapons resolution. the rebels and a lot of people who speak for them see the chemical weapons as see essentially as a sigh show. they're wanting to dismantle the convexal weapons is that have killed over 100,000 people in syria. >> elizabeth, what's the challenge for the inspectors that are in there now? >> it looks as if they've got a
8:32 am
pretty good list of what is supposed to be in the stock, so they'll actually go -- fizz look i go into the storage spaces and the research spaces and manufacturing spaces and check off what needs to with taken and destroy destroyed. it's the getting in that's going to be difficult. two of them are hot zones and there're no clear resolution that they'll say we're going to give you safe passage. come on in. it's going be very dangers. >> is there any understanding or believe that they can somehow move somewhere where they will not be destroyed or detected? >> i think it's always a risk but we have to remember that russian credibility on the luchblt russians have the whiphand and they're going to do everything they can to make sure it happens. >> let's talk with you, secretary rice. were you surprised that this agreement to give up the chemical weapons came to quickly
8:33 am
after they were an off-the-cuff remark? >> i have spent a lot of time with vladimir putin. he saw an opening to displace the united states very well in this conflict. he saw an eat to secure russia's re-entry into the middle east since henry kissinger did. he's interested in russia. not in assad or syrian situation. give him credit. he's done a fabulous job of making russia the main story. >> is there a danger for the u.s.? >> while on the issue with the chemical weapons our issues are definitely coincident. we also want to see the chemical weapons dismantled. when it comes to the outcome of the several war in syria rngs our interests are not the same. their interests are in
8:34 am
establishizing the assad regime and getting an outcome that's in their direction. their interests do not, for instance, are not concerned with the fact that the iranians are a dominant factor in 30,000 or so iranian fighters inside syria. we have some common interests around not having al qaeda be a major presence in syria, but we have to be careful because the russians have done a very good job of securing it. >> also i don't think we've been clear what our interests are. our policy we seem to say one thing and kind of do nothing. say one thing, kind of do nothing. we're going to arm the rebels. three month later i'm standing in the weapons area and they don't have be up kiss. >> also to take up your point, thichlk this is a very elegant piece of diplomacy.
8:35 am
in the end syria is giving way chechl cal weapons it was using minimally if at all and they haven't given away any of the main tools they're use in. the rebels that are not being armed are most likely. the people being armed are extremisted. they're using the horrors of conventional weapons against its own people and so when you look at the situation on the ground and you say if you now go to diplomacy, it's going to reflect what's on the ground. who's in the weakest position on the ground? the rebels most co-incident -- >> will they look back and say it was a mistake u.s. not to support them. >> i was in favor of providing weapons to the rebel free army. i think then you had a chance to support nonextremist elements.
8:36 am
when people say there are huge amounts, yes. there were fewer a year ago and fewer from now. i think not acting here was mistake. >> i want to get your take on something. there was a story in the guardian who said most girls can't find syria on a map and you and i have spoken about this. it turns out that the the head of the beirut journal chief, no, times, "washington post," the telegraph are all women. what do you think is the role of women journalist it. s in syria now. what has changed? >> i think the women are really dominating in terms of the syrian coverage we have seen and i think one tiny part of that may be -- people always assume you're a woman in the middle east. it must be so tough. how do you do it?
8:37 am
>> actually it's a tremendous honor to because you're afforded access to other women which our male counterparts are not. you go to the vm and sit down with the women. they know everything that is happening in that village. >> you're absolutely right. >> do you think women are more open to talking to women journalists. >> i know that one of the main advantages is that women are more invisible. i think i can always get through a military check point more easily than a machblt i can melt into a crowd and put on a head scarf and virtually disappear. u afternoon met with the wives. you'd be surprised how much close cloet they rlg have in their own societies and you learn things through the networks you would not other learn. i want to return to one point. i think our lives in the region

whether it is israel tore golf states are also quite concerns particularly the golf states the saudis the uae and others. they went out on a limb with us that assad had to go. and now assad seems to be in a stronger position than he was six months ago and i think that's the problem >> they've been arming the rebels who are not necessarily oural lies. >> we said we're going to leave this to the regional powers. we wants a syria that was for all syrians. >> it's a conversation that we go on and on and on with. >> it's so great to have you. >> it's great moment to have you here. >> thank you. thank you all o. >> condoleezza rice elizabeth palmer, and clarissa ward. speaking of women
