7:06 am
former fbi director. good morning. how do they respond to this active shooter situation? >> malls have come to this situation that this is not a phenomenon. they're starting to focus on this more and more. west field developed an active shooter program for their security very quietly behind the scenes but they're an israeli-owned company. we've the chairman on this show. they're very focused on this. part of their plan is a lockdown of the security command posts so they can follow the events using video cameras and feed intelligence out. the other part is that security people respond out to the rally point where police will respond. with something interesting. a couple of mall security radios so they can begin to communicate with people inside who may be guards who are hiding or trapped with other customers. or who may have a vantage point. and the third thing is that they respond with a full floor plan of the location. and this has been drilled into
7:07 am
every security person's head. not to think about it, just do it. >> you know when you go to other countries. you mentioned this is an israeli-owned mall. you've got measures in some parts of the world. >> israelis have a lot about that. when i was there studying security, they said, you're the country that checks the packages on the way out of the mall. we're the one that checks them on the way in. we're worried about shoplifting and they're worried about terrorism. >> right. >> are we going to see this every day now? you said to me as you sat down you're going down to washington to moderate a discussion amongst very important people. what's the question? >> so the question today is, and this is the critical assessment group of virginia state university, this is -- this is commanding control in these incidents. if you're a town like paramus, they well practice this. or a small place or large place,
7:08 am
how do you execute the police function there. but i just came from the international association of chiefs of police in philadelphia where i was the moderator on the active shooter panel. this is something that law enforcement is focused on because it keeps happening again and again. part of it is the tactics. and the other part of the discussion is why is this happening? why is it happening more? >> well, those are answers we need. and we have that other unfortunate incident to check in now. john, thank you very much. because investigators out in los angeles are focusing on the anti-government views of the man who was charged with killing that tsa officer. this morning, officials say they still don't know why the suspect chose his target. some observers say the officers should have been able to defend themselves. ben tracy's inside terminal 3 at l.a.x. where the shooting took place. ben, good morning. >> reporter: margaret and charlie, good morning. accused gunman paul ciancia is still in the hospital this morning.
7:09 am
his lawyer says he's unconscious and unable to speak after being shot in the face by l.a.x. police. now ciancia's family did issue a statement. they say they're shocked by what took place right here in this terminal. some are now calling for tsa officers to be armed. tony grigsby was one of two tsa officers shot on friday who survived he wanted to talk about his fellow officer who did not. >> let me take one moment to express the sadness i feel in my heart over the loss of my friend gerardo hernandez. not only how it has hit me that i will never see him again. >> reporter: grigsby says he was shot twice as he tried to help an elderly man escape accused shooter paul ciancia's rampage. according to court documents, ciancia's roommate dropped him off. the affidavit says ciancia was
7:10 am
worried about the, quote, new world order. a conspiracy theory about a totalitarian one world government. on monday, police visited ciancia's apartment. theys sco escorted one of his roommates. >> as much as we work each and every day to make this airport safer. it's sad to say but nothing will ever be 100%. >> reporter: a memorial was held monday night for gerard go hernandez. meanwhile the union who represents tsa officers calls for some of those officers to carry guns. currently, none are armed. >> we're not suggesting that all 45,000 tsa officers be armed. what we're suggesting there needs to be another layer added, which would be transportation security law enforcement officers who would have law enforcement duties. would have a weapon. would have the ability to arrest people. >> but the head of the airport
7:11 am
police here says even if the tsa agent who was murdered had a gun it would not have mattered. that's because paul ciancia had hid his rifle in a suitcase. he pulled it out at the last minute and fired that the officer at point blank range. charlie and margaret. new follow-up on the trouble on the obama care website to key tests to ensure the privacy of information fell behind schedule. a deadline for final security plans was delayed three times over the summer. and final top-to-bottom security tests never got done before the launch. all of that is adding to concerns about safety of personal information on the site. jan crawford is in washington. good morning. >> good morning charlie, good morning, margaret. technology experts are telling us that was not enough testing of the security on the website before it went live. they shared with cbs news several flaws that could expose your personal information. and now, we're starting to see real live examples what can go
7:12 am
wrong. with critics openly mocking the obama administration about problems with healthcare.gov, officials insist on one thing, at least the website is safe. >> consumers can trust that their information is protected by stringent security standards. >> reporter: but that he will to south carolina attorney thomas dougall. >> my information is out there and i want it deleted from their website. >> reporter: dougall and his wife signed up on the website in october. but over the weekend, they got a disturbing call who also registered and was shocked to get the dougall's eligibility letters including their name and address. >> it's just a system that we were told was secure and now i find out it's not secure. >> reporter: a spokeswoman confirmed an incident involving the personal information of one consumer was reported. and we took immediate steps. we identified a piece of software cota needed to be fixed. and that fix is now in place. but other fixes are not.
7:13 am
software experts tell cbs news they have identified multiple security issues, including user names and passwords. we gave one technology expert the real healthcare.gov user name of a cbs employee. within seconds, he identified the specific security question she selected to reset her password. sean henry, president of the cybersecurity firm crowd strike services. >> if somebody's got the ability to look at a source code and able to identify and engineer that and identify what somebody's personal questions are that should be of concern. >> mike rogers told me yesterday that this is one more reason the website should be taken down and tested for security vulnerabilities. we're starting to see democrats make that point. concerns, of course, it will likely be raised when secretary sebelius testifies against before congress again on wednesday. charlie and margaret.
7:14 am
>> thank you. well, there are national implications for the two gubernatorial elections taking place today. in virginia, former dnc chairman terry mcauliffe faces a tough race against ken cuccinelli and in new jersey chris christie is heavily favored over democrat barbara buono. >> cbs news contributor and former obama chief of staff joins us this morning, bill daley. >> good morning. >> on expectation of a win, if republicans are looking for a place where they can win, look at what happened in new jersey, is that the message that comes out of new jersey if he wins? >> if he wins, if he wins with the ability to bring voters into his complain, the republican conservative campaign that traditionally have not been there over the last couple of cycles, he'll have a very strong argument to be made that's the model to win on the national campaign. and the opposite may be true in virginia when you have a pretty conservative and obviously tea
7:15 am
party aligned gubernatorial candidate may go down in defeat in a state that had been traditionally very republican, now moving in fought purple, towards blue. that's a stark contrast. >> but to charlie's point, the projection is that christie and new jersey will bring in black and hispanic voters. so has he proven himself to be the inevitable candidate? >> well, he's proven in new jersey. we're a long way away from a presidential campaign. he has to go through primaries that are not necessarily reflective of the voters of new jersey. and he's going to have to convince the republican voters as others have found, romney found out, a very difficult process. so he's in a strong position after today, if he wins with the sort of victory you say but still very unlikely. >> do you see games coming out of political environment that might be a narrative for 2016 or 2014? >> i don't think we're there
7:16 am
yet. there's a lot to happen between now and '16. the '14 elections, obviously, we have the house up and much of the senate. other gubernatorial races. that will be indicative of people in two states. >> if you're revising the plan for today for hillary clinton today and everybody is talking about that, what would you advise her? >> there's nothing really she can do. i would suggest she keep doing what she's doing. keep a relatively low profile which is impossible for her. but not engage -- >> in speculation? >> not only speculation, but the day-to-day discourse that's going on. the american people don't want it all the time. i think the biggest challenge for her is to try to tamper this thing down. >> and if you were the president today, would you be out trying to make your case, or would you be keeping a quieter public face? >> i think the case for health care is very strong. and i think he has to be out there. but the most important thing, obviously, is what he's
7:17 am
repeatedly said, that is, get the thing fixed, and get it running and get a lot of this behind him. >> to the argument that jan crawford has been making in one report after another, there seems to be problems at the heart that go beyond the website. and the president is seeming responsible because he's the one who said you won't have to face the problem of getting plans if you like your own plan. >> well, a lot of this confusion is rooted in the ability -- in the inability of the website and therefore to move on from the original debate and difficulties. and once that gets fixed, then i think the discussion changes as to the process of it actually working. >> good to see you. the embassy in damascus came under fire this morning. we're told it hit an area where no one was inside. vatican officials say the embassy has been hit ten times by mortar bombs since july. americans are paying the cheapest gas prices of the year. this morning aaa says the

about a popular medicine. why some believe it won't be enough to change that pharmaceutical's new business. that's ahead. this morning, the nfl player's association is calling on the league to uphold the responsibility to maintain a safe workplace to players. it follows revelations that miami dolphins player jonathan martin received a barrage of vicious and racist messages, they allegedly came from one of his own teammates, fellow offensive lineman richie incognito. mark strassmann is at the training facility in florida. mark, good morning. >> reporter: we learned when jonathan martin first left the dolphins last week, he never told the team the real reason why. he was worried about the possible impact on his nfl career and the possibility of retribution. but his agent told the team, and that pushed them to launch this investigation. the menacing messages were laced with racism and profanity. in one voice mail. message according to nfl.com,
7:32 am
richie incognito allegedly told jonathan martin hey what's up y you're still a rookie, i'll kill you." after they provided with copies of the communications on sunday, they suspended incognito and asked the nfl to investigate. >> we are going to give, as on organization, our full and complete cooperation with the nfl. >> reporter: last year, incognito was chosen for his first pro bowl. and received the team's good guy award for cooperating with local media. >> hi. >> reporter: he also starred in this stadium video. >> on the field, players have comphield overly aggressive. >> reporter: played before over dolphins home game. >> please be respectful and civilized and follow the fan code of conduct. >> he's a pretty nice guy. likes to joke around.
7:33 am
overall, he's pretty cool. >> reporter: but incognito has also had a troubled past. for four years he led the nfl in unnecessary roughness penalties. was released by the st. louis rams for clashing with the head coach and was chosen by his peers as the dirtiest player in the nfl in 2009. yesterday, tmz released this video reporting to show incognito in a drunken rampage [ bleep ]. >> reporter: dolphins head coach joe philbin said his suspension was justified. and the miami herald reports that the dolphins have already decided incognito has lost his job for good. >> not going to get into the specifics of what it was, i had enough information, i felt, to make a good decision. >> the dolphins hold a special game program on halloween. in it, incognito described martin as the easiest teammate to scare. incognito was allegedly the ringleader of this harassment
7:34 am
which means there could be other players implicated as the investigation goes on. >> james brown spoke to "nfl today" on cbs. he's in oklahoma city. j.b., good morning. >> good morning, charlie, and margaret. >> how prevalent is this? >> charlie, rookie treatment, if you will, is widespread in the nfl. benign nature, duct taping guys to the post, thing of that nature, even buying meals. clearly, charlie and margaret, this is way overboard. >> this goes against the concept of a team. does the league have a responsibility to act here? or is this something that should be handled within the team itself? >> no, margaret, the former of what you said is what's going to take place. the nfl league office is sending their senior vice president of labor policy adolfo birch to investigate this. as a matter of fact, he's been in touch with the team since last week. i'm sure you and charlie are
7:35 am
aware of the termal institutional control as it relates to this. this seems to be applicable here as well. it would seem that the coaching staff has responsibility of what's going on not only from the team leaders, but the trainers, quilt managers, getting information like this. this has been going on for a while, trust me, there's a lot more to come out about this. >> what will happen to both players? >> the dolphins will welcome martin back with open arms. clearly, he's not going into the same environment. mark strassmann indicated has been reported in miami is more than likely going to be the situation there. incognito's days as a dolphin, they're over. >> martin himself had come forward and made clear he was having some issues here. and really wasn't until he provided proof. or there was proof provided by other sources in terms of text messages, in it emergency rooms of actual hard evidence that any action was taken here. >> and you know what, margaret, it's a shame that it had to come
7:36 am
to that point. look, the locker room -- it's supposed to be as you indicated team-oriented. sometimes, guys engage in juvenile kinds of action, sophomoric for sure. but team leaders can usually tell if a player has reached its limit. those team leaders will step in. shannon sharp, my colleague joked about that. and he's was one of the biggest jokesters on the team you back off of that line and clearly that was crossed a number of times with martin. >> j.b., thanks. pharmaceutical giant john ann and johnson is reviewing one of the biggest health care frauds in history. the company will pay the justice department $2.2 billion after charges of false marketing for one of its most popular drugs but as bob orr reports the massive settlement may not lead to much change. >> reporter: the justice department alleged that johnson and johnson boosted saleses with millions of sales of kickbacks
