just the opening round of a new military campaign against al qaeda in yemen. lisa monaco, who served as president obama's homeland security adviser, told charlie rose she was briefed on the operation before she left office. >> the white house was presented in the wayneing weeks of the obama administration, a broad proposal, so not a single raid, a single operation on a single target, a broad proposal for increased military operations in yemen. >> reporter: of all the branches of al qaeda, the one in yemen is considered most dedicated to launching an attack against the american homeland, so the pentagon waited fair moonless night, and last weekend sent seal team 6 into a remote al qaeda hideout. the seals landed a fuel miles away and tried to sneak up-- it but were detected and began taking heavy fire. they called i
6:33 pm
gunships but civilians, including some children, were also inside. no longer pinned down, the seals moved through the building killing al qaeda fighters and collecting laptops, hard drives, and cell phones. in an attempt to show results, the u.s. military released a sample of the intelligence collect oltd raid, but it turned out to be old news-- a voof a bomb-making class which has been on the internet for years. military officers insisted the raid also produced what they called "actionable intelligence," meaning information that can be used to break up terrorist plots. but that may require more raids into yemen and more casualties. scott. >> pelley: david martin at the pentagon. david, thank you. today, president trump imposed new sanctions on iran after a ballistic missile test. the test was not a violation of the recent nuclear deal, but it was a provocation. major garrett's at the white house. >> they're not behaving
6:34 pm
once again condemned iran today for its recent test of a ballistic missile. his administration's new sanction will hit 25 individuals and companies involved in the missile program. on twitter, mr. trump said iran was, "playing with fire." iran's foreign minister, javid zarif, also on twitter, posted this video about its ballistic missiles. >> because we will never-- repeat, never-- and get the same statement from those who consider rcomplaining-- never use them against anybody, unless in self-defense, and we assure that nobody has the guts to gain to attack us. >> reporter: the u.s. is also alarmed by iran's backing of houthi rebels fighting u.s. allies in yemen. it blames the rebels for this suicide attack against a saudi arabian ship. u.s. intelligence believes will the rebels thought they were striking a u.s. vessel. in a statement, national security adviser michael flynn said, "the days of turning a blind eye to iran's
6:35 pm
belligerent actions towards the united states and the world community are over." >> pelley: major, there have been some statements this week from the administration that are a little difficult to square. can you walk us through them? >> reporter: sure. lots to choose from this week, scott, but three episodes in particular caught our attention. first, last night, senior white house adviser kellyanne conway offered a defense of the administration's new immigrant executive order by saying it was necessary to prevent another "both green massacre" from happening. she said that didn't get much coverage. for a good reason-- there was no such massacre. two iraqi refugees in bowling green were arrested in 2011 for trying to send weapons and money to al qaeda. con way did later acknowledge her mistake. and earlier in the week, the administration told the media that gorsuch and hardiman would travel too d.c. but after it turned out only
6:36 pm
gorsuch made the trip, the administration criticized the meetia for reporting information they provided. and they called fake news accountes of a tense call between president trump and malcolm turnbull. sources from both governments confirmed the call was fact nact tense and there were sharp agreements. three episodes of accusing the media for doing one thing when oftentimes the white house was part of the story itself. >> pelley: the state department said it has revoked tens of thousands of visas in the ban on citizens from seven predominantly muslim nations. a cbs news poll out today finds that americans are split on that ban. 45% approve, 51% disapprove. as for the president, only 40% of americans approve of the job he's doing, 48% disapprove. breaking it down by party, 84% of republicans approve, 84% of democrats disapprove.
6:37 pm
central paris was thrown into panic today after a knife-wielding man attacked soldiers guarding the louvre museum. president trump put out a statement that said, "get smart u.s. the attack ended quickly, and jonathan vigliotti is in paris. >> reporter: french police rushed the shopping mall underneath the louvre as bewildered tourists looked on. >> i wonder if this is a training exercise. >> reporter: but it wasn't. inside, a man with a machete in each hand lunged at soldiers, shouting, "god is great," in arabic, before he was shot five times in the legs and stomach. police say the man had two backpacks, but they contained only spray paint canisters. one soldier was injured with a minor head wound. visitors to the louvre were kept inside for two hours as a precaution. >> a lot of the girls were crying. a lot of the young children in the-- and girls were crying. >> there were young girls that were crying. >> reporter: the suspect is identified as a 29-year-

to france from dubai in january. police raided an apartment tonight, where they believe he was staying. france has been under a state of emergency since november 2015 when 130 people were killed in coordinate isis attacks around paris. in july, another militant used a truck to plow through a holiday crowd in nice, killing 80. france has responded by putting 10,000 soldiers on the streets, including around tourist attractions. but french prosecutor says the attacker was unknown to authorities. visas to saudi arabia and turkey were found during that apartment raid. scott, at this point, it's unclear if he was acting alone. >> pelley: jonathan vigliotti outside the louvre tonight. american businesses created nearly a quarter of a million jobs last month, but wages were steady, and the unemployment rate was 4.8%. buesident trump met with

6:40 pm
big, broader economy. >> reporter: all right. the president also wants to make a change that could have some impact on folks saving for retirement. what are we looking at here. >> this is the so-called fiduciary standard. the department of labor was set to put into place a new rule in april, and that rule was going to force a financial adviser, salesperson, and the company he or sheer works for to be mandated to put the customer first, and you would have to disclose any conflict of interest that was existing. now, again, this is probably going to be delayed. we don't know what the outcome is going to be, but i think april 10 is not gog happen. >> reporter: all right, jill schlesinger, thanks very much. >> thank you. >> reporter: scott. >> pelley: anthony mason, jill schlesinger, thanks. in a sharp break with past u.s. policy, the trump administration is signaling that it will not oppose the expansion of israeli settlements in the west bank, though yesterday it warned that they may not be helpful to achieving middle east peace. seth doane visited

6:42 pm
kushner, senior adviser and son-in-law to mr. trump, donated $38,000, and in 2003, mr. trump's foundation donated $10,000. >> i believe that they did it because they felt that beit el is really a very special and important place. >> reporter: but this is also a place claimed by palestinians. >> this was their land for the last 1,000 years. this-- the jewish people came here 4,000 years ago. >> reporter: the settlement carves into the rocky hillside near ramallah. merav sela says settling here stakes a claim. >> the arabs, they can live here, but they need to be quiet, and not do any harm. >> reporter: your views unwavering. >> i don't really like them, actually. >> reporter: in ramallah, we asked this palestinian, about beit el's high-profile

6:44 pm
hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me.

6:47 pm
