4:00 pm
coming up this hour on cnn. violent protests in istanbul as demonstrators clash with riot police. we'll take you there live. facebook and microsoft say the u.s. government asked them to turn over users' private information. as many as 17,000 times in just six months. michael jackson's ghost shows up at the trial over his death. and a judge allows the testimony. you can't make this stuff up. here in the cnn newsroom i am don lemon. welcome everyone. it is 2:00 a.m. in istanbul. turkey's biggest city is seething with rage right now. just hours ago turkish security forces stormed gezy park forcing
4:01 pm
out protesters opposed to the prime minister. now in the streets around the park protesters are setting fires while the sound of chaos echoes all across the city. i want to get to the thick of things. what are you seeing right now? >> reporter: well, don, we're down on one corner of the square and down this street about 200 yards down there there are still large groups of protesters in the side streets that lead to the square and they continue to fight running battles with riot police. that white vehicle that you can see now just reversing up the street is one of the police water canons. they saw action earlier on night falling. there were thousands of demonstrators gathered both in the square and in the park throughout the course of the afternoon hundreds of riot police had also began gathering and then just as night fell that was when the prime minister and the security forces made good on their promise to clear the park.
4:02 pm
they sent in lines of riot police up the middle of the park and down the sides of the park and at that point they were whipping up tents and driving the protesters both with water cannon and with tear gas out of the park. there was some resistance from the demonstrators. some of them used rocks and bottles to fight the police but it wasn't a long fight. the demonstrators really didn't have much choice because of the organization of the police force to pull back. but as i say right now in the early hours now of the morning what we're seeing down this street and down many of the other side streets, are groups of protesters beginning to reassemble and go head to head once again with the riot police. we also hear from my colleague in another point of the city that maybe hundreds or even thousands of other protesters are coming from other parts of the city to back these groups and take the fight once again to
4:03 pm
the wire as they say. this is one of the water canons we've been seeing action throughout the course of the night. they periodically will withdraw from the areas where the protesters are to go fill back up with water. they are also armed with bulldozers on the front and that has been very effective against the protesters' barricades. they simply lower the bulldozer and plow through the barricades. that is what has been allowing them to clear the lines so riot police can then go in on foot and get into close quarters with the protesters and drive them out now of the park and the square. those areas are now clear of protesters, but as i say, the fight goes on in some of the side streets, don. >> karl penhaul, istanbul, keeping an eye on the situation there. we will get back to karl as the situation warrants. meantime, iran has declared the winner of its presidential election, moderate cleric hasan
4:04 pm
rouhani. he won more than 50% of the vote. here is brand new video of rouhani and his supporters celebrating today in tehran. his campaign began to gather steam last month when he dared to accuse the state media of censorship and lies and criticized the government's tight grip on security. he will take office come august. terrorists unleashed a devastating attack in pakistan today. a bomb tore through a bus killing at least 11 women. 20 more people were injured in that attack. but it was just the first for that city. next, militants stormed the hospital where the wounded were being treated. before the siege finally ended, three security force members and the deputy commissioner were killed along with three nurses caught in the cross fire. four gunmen were also killed. we have big developments in the controversy over your private data and secret government surveillance. fans of edward snowden are showing their support on the streets of hong kong.
4:05 pm
>> we support edward snowden! >> the 29-year-old who leaked nsa documents revealing the top-secret program is believed to still be hiding in hong kong, plus this. the nsa may soon declassify key documents on terror plots prevented by the secret government surveillance program. plus, facebook and microsoft opening up about how often the government asked them to turn over users' data. we have brand new details on how the u.s. intelligence community is defending the secret surveillance program. a congressional source gave cnn a copy of a document the u.s. intelligence community sent to congress today. here's a quote on tracking phone records. the data acquired and stored may be queried only when there is a reasonable suspicion based on specific facts that an identifier is associated with specific foreign terrorist organizations. in 2012 less than 300 unique
4:06 pm
identifiers met this standard and were queried. the agency says it has helped disrupt dozens of plots. >> feeling the pressure the national security agency is trying to prove to americans this method of tracking phone calls and collecting internet data has helped prevent terror plots. this document cnn just obtained says the surveillance program helped disrupt dozens of potential terrorist plots in the u.s. and in more than 20 countries around the world. the document also details the intelligence community's assertion that one of the thwarted attacks was the 2009 plot to blow up the new york city subway system. now, because of nsa's phone tracking it says u.s. intelligence discovered a pakistan terrorist was in contact with someone in the u.s. conspiring to carry out the attack. the nsa tipped off the fbi and
4:07 pm
conspirators were arrested and the plot thwarted. the head of the very secret nsa is promising to declassify more information about specific terror plots thwarted. senator dianne feinstein says the information could be released as soon as monday. don? >> thank you very much. let's talk more about this first of its kind disclosure. cnn's laurie siegel is looking into the depths of these requests and how silicon valley is responding. >> reporter: hey, don. well, when it comes to this kind of data we learned a little bit about what facebook is looking for. they said the data has helped local sheriffs find missing children, helped national security officials investigate terrorist threats. we could likely find out more of that information. microsoft knew a little bit less but we do know this has affected 30,000 users. we don't know exactly what the requests are. i think we should take a second to look and see what kind of
4:08 pm
requests are published. a single request could be very sweeping. are we looking at a couple e-mails or three months of cell phone data? obviously a lot of folks talking about this kind of thing and a lot of tech companies coming forward with this data. i think microsoft, facebook, google, this won't be the last of it. i can only assume. but i also want to say silicon valley is really divided on this right now. i've been speaking with people all week. i've spoken to the founder and different investors and the view on this data collection is a little bit different. listen to what they told me. >> i would say our perspective over all as the earliest stage of venture in technology is, fundamentally privacy is dead. today there are nine companies participating. i suspect there will be a thousand companies that are in a position to participate ten years from now. >> it will come up a lot sooner for founders and founders maybe who were thinking move fast and break things are now going to be thinking move fast and break things but don't break the
4:09 pm
constitution. and i think this is an opportunity for us as citizens to really start to draw a line in the sand for what is off limits. what is still private even in this digital age. >> reporter: obviously transparency at the heart of this debate. you can expect the story keeps changing, unfolding very quickly. we'll keep you in the loop. don? >> all right. thank you very much. next, returning to ruins. almost 500 coloradoans run out by wildfires are allowed to see where their homes once stood. you deserve more than justo flexibility and convenience. so here are a few reasons to choose university of phoenix. our average class size is only 14 students. our financial tools help you make smart choices about how to pay for school. our faculty have, on average, over 16 years of field experience. we'll help you build a personal career plan. we build programs based on what employers are looking for. our football team is always undefeated. and leading companies are interested in our graduates. we'll even help you decorate your new office. ok. let's get to work.

there is still no jury seated in the murder trial of george zimmerman. attorneys on both sides of the case questioned potential jurors yesterday about how much they knew about the case, where they get their day-to-day news, and
4:18 pm
whether they think george zimmerman is guilty or not guilty based on what they have heard in the press. zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of teenager trayvon martin last year. jury selection continues on monday. for seven weeks now lawyers in los angeles have been battling over who is responsible for the death of michael jackson. when it comes to the superstar, we have seen and heard just about everything but this week just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder, jackson's ghost showed up in court. i kid you not. jackson's testimony was relayed to the court via aeg live's randy phillips who heard it from lionel ritchie's ex-wife brenda. aeg live's former ceo randy phillips heard it from lionel ritchie's ex-wife brenda who heard it from a medium of course. you following me here? well, maybe my guest is following me. he joins me from los angeles to help explain this. how on earth did the judge even allow this to happen?
4:19 pm
>> well, they opened the door when they started having e-mails going back and forth that one of them said exonerated aeg. and somebody said, well where did that come from? and finally the guy came out and testified and this is no guy. this is the ceo of the company. he said, well that was from a medium who talked to lionel ritchie's ex-wife. the medium talked to michael's ghost and exonerated us and said we did nothing wrong. in fact, michael said he did it to himself and he is sorry. i can't believe that kind of evidence came in. >> yeah. he said that the medium according to lionel ritchie's ex-wife through the medium that michael jackson's ghost said conrad murray was not responsible for his death. that, in fact, michael jackson himself was responsible because he did it. okay. there are plenty of e-mails between aeg executives that came up in court this week. i want you to listen to one and then we'll talk about it. >> this e-mail to you says,
4:20 pm
trouble with m.j., big trouble. what are you guys up to tonight? do you see that? >> yes. >> and do you know why it is or what was your understanding of why he was informing you about trouble with m.j.? do you have an understanding of what he was talking about? >> no. >> did you respond? >> sure looks like it. >> what did you tell him? >> do you want me to read what it says? >> sure. >> it says, i figured something might be wrong given how jittery randy has been this week. is it preshow nerves, bad, or straitjacket call our insurance carrier bad? we're around tonight just hanging out. >> so that was during depositions right in november of 2012? so then was he talking about randy phillips or michael jackson? >> he is obviously talking about
4:21 pm
michael jackson because randy phillips isn't going to have jitters. he is not going to be performing on stage. it's clearly they're talking about michael. listen, don, the wheels have come off. >> what does this do to aeg? at first many people would say, listen, this case is really going to be thrown out. the jackson family has nothing. aeg, there isn't even a contract. what does it do to the case now? >> i think this case has gone from what i originally thought was a tough case and i know the lawyers to this case now is turning into a damages case. it is going to simply be about how much money they're going to give the jackson family. >> wow. >> there is nothing left here to talk about in this case. they controlled them. they operated. they're crazy. if anyone is in trouble it's aeg. >> wow. how did it go from aeg having the upper hand saying, hey listen. it was michael jackson who wanted to hire conrad murray and was in control of this. we were just fronting the money for conrad murray. there wasn't even a signed contract. how did it go from that to this?
4:22 pm
>> because of the e-mails and the evidence. there are so many e-mails and it shows what happens when the e-mails demonstrate what actually happened. >> you never know at the beginning of a trial what is going to show up, how it's going to turn out. in court yesterday jurors watched a comparison of two of michael jackson's performances one from 2001 and the other from 2009 right before his death. i want you to watch and then we'll talk about it. ♪ ♪ okay. so how is this going to impact the trial? >> well, what this is showing is just a few days before michael died that michael wasn't able to do his spins. he wasn't able to do the workout there. and it goes in with all the evidence that's come in at this point in the trial, which shows that michael was slowly but very clearly falling apart.
4:23 pm
and they had a duty or at least that is what i suspect the plaintiff will contend to pull the plug on the show to get him help. in fact, did you know, don, that one of the copresidents of the company was elvis's agent and saw what happened to elvis? >> can we roll that video again? you don't have to play the sound. he is what, almost ten years older in the video, or eight. i mean, how is that really going to make a big difference? plus, this is a rehearsal, right? you're not going full force at a rehearsal, brian. >> no, but you have to take it into the context of the time and with all the other evidence that came in and the problems that michael was having and the potential occasions he was showing up either having been drinking or as some of the people said here in big trouble. you take all of this together. there were warning signs everywhere, don.
4:24 pm
>> can i just call you cabitak? i like one name. >> all day long. >> you'll be like madonna or someone who is really famous or prince. just cabitak. >> just like them without the talent. >> thanks cabitak. we'll talk to you soon. appreciate it. >> thank you. violent clashes in istanbul. riot police tossing tear gas in crowds and spraying protesters with water cannon. we'll go live right after this. copd makes it hard to breathe...

4:27 pm
okay. we want to get you back to our top story. we showed you the protesters. the protests choking the streets around gezi park, istanbul, turkey. we saw it earlier and also the square there have been some protests there with people banging on garbage cans and also setting fires. we saw our karl penhaul out there a short time ago showing water cannon going back and forth between the scenes and police trying to move the protesters out of the park. we'll go to istanbul. what is it like where you are right now? >> reporter: well, if my eyes look a bit bloodshot it is because they just fired quite a few rounds of tear gas here. we are on the asian side of istanbul. there were a few thousand people
4:28 pm
gathered. >> cnn's arway damon reporting from istanbul, turkey. she is reporting on the protests. you heard her there a short time ago saying if her eyes looked a little bloodshot it is because they were spraying tear gas. and she got caught up in that tear gas saying she is reporting on the asian side of the border but again arwa damon is there and our karl penhaul both there. we'll continue with this for a little bit and try to get her back up for you. the police used water cannon and tear gas to try to clear the protesters that were camped out in this park which is really ground zero for antigovernment demonstrations, targeting the police and prime minister. they took over the square and the adjacent park today and there you see some of the water cannon and police pushing those
4:29 pm
protesters back. our producers are there on the scene as well. arwa damon joins us now. you were explaining to us where you were and there was some tear gas involved in your reporting. >> reporter: yeah. we are on the asian side of istanbul and a few thousand people had gathered here. the image earlier was really quite incredible. they had gathered here trying to walk across the bridge to the european side which is where the square and the park are located. the police used tear gas to disperse the crowd and again chased them down trying to push them as far back from the entrance to the area as they possibly could. tear gassing was pretty intense. we're also hearing people banging pots and pans. they do this in solidarity and we're also hearing people are trying to regroup once again and try once again to actually cross
4:30 pm
that bridge. istanbul has not been through something like this in recent history. we not only have the clashes happening, the tear gas happening in the area. this has spread to other parts of the city now as well. >> we are concerned because for the most part today this has just been people making a lot of noise and causing some trouble but no injuries and obviously no deaths. you mentioned tear gas. we saw you earlier wearing a gas mask. that is of concern. what do you know about injuries and the use of these sort of weapons? we don't yet have accurate statistics on injuries from today but up until this point there were four people who have been killed so far. a thousand more have been wounded. those who are wounded not just because of the gas but there are
4:31 pm
other injuries as well. we're hearing people are sustaining various scrapes. some of the injuries more serious than others. the protesters actually set up something of a makeshift clinic inside the park itself and had another clinic outside one of the five star hotels right next to the park. that is how they were trying to deal with the bulk of those who were injured. we don't have a clear idea of exactly what those statistics are for. all of this taking place by surprise though because even though the prime minister threatened he would be going in they were expecting it maybe to happen on sunday, maybe early monday morning but most certainly not tonight. >> all right. arwa, keep a close eye on this and stay safe. we're hearing from the turkish government. 29 people injured. arwa damon reporting from istanbul, turkey. we'll get back to her if the situation warrants it there. let's move on now and talk about facebook and microsoft.

4:35 pm
the u.s. intelligence community sent a document to congress today getting specific about how often phone records are tracked. it says, the medi data acquired and stored under this program may be queried only when there is a reasonable suspicion based upon specific and articulated facts that an identifier is associated with specific foreign terrorist organizations. in 2012 less than 300 unique identifiers met this standard and were queried. let's bring in cnn's law enforcement analyst tom fuentes in washington. that would have been great in english. we know what it meant. it just meant you have to have specific guidelines in order to get this information.
4:36 pm
>> right. >> is the intelligence community trying to do damage control here? >> i think they are trying to clarify to help people better understand what the real issue is. the data mining we're talking about is like taking a hundred million records a day from the phone company and putting them in a warehouse. if some issue comes up, go to the particular file, pull it off the shelf, and take a look at someone, some particular number to do an investigation. so, you know, no one is in a position to be monitoring the volume that we're talking about. if you add the other phone companies under the assumption they're probably also providing similar data you could be looking at close to a billion records a day being transmitted to nsa, of storage by nsa for a future look. there are not enough analysts in the world much less the u.s. government to analyze a billion records a day. that are getting put into storage. when an issue comes up to be able to go back to it that is what the government is asking
4:37 pm
for. >> all right. in 2012 it says less than 300 unique identifiers met the standard and were queried. i mean, it doesn't seem to be getting a lot of information, garnering a lot of useful information. no? >> well, what if that was 300 cases where people would have died? i mean we have no tolerance for anybody dying from a terrorist act. you know, when the fbi said we've done all we can with camera land, the boston bomber in 2011, we're not happy with that. they dropped the ball. why didn't they keep following and monitoring him? because they were following the guidelines. so that is the issue in these cases is how much access do you want the government to have and for how long? part of the issue is the phone companies and internet service providers have all this data in the first place. nobody is questioning they know all that. >> it sounds like you are saying to me it is a lose-lose proposition for the government and maybe the administration. maybe i'm wrong. if they have a program like this, it's over reaching. but if they don't and somebody
4:38 pm
dies, then it is their fault. is that what you're saying? >> absolutely. that is true. it's just a fact of life and they know it. i know it when i was in the fbi that's what you're dealing with. why didn't you know what the bad guy was thinking? why didn't you know when he turned from just thinking bad thoughts to actually going and killing somebody? do we want an fbi in this country to have the ability to know that? what would it take to be in a position to know that? >> why do people see this guy as a hero, tom? there are many people who say i think what this guy did is heroic. >> because they don't understand the ramifications. legitimately they do understand and have a point that there is so much data being collected by the government. there is no question about that. they have a reasonable position let's say to be supportive of someone who tries to bring that to a stop. what they don't understand is are they also willing to accept that we don't care if the government no longer has the act
4:39 pm
to go track whether an individual has made phone calls to other terrorists, whether they are a bigger network. >> all right, tom. stand by. i want to figure out what makes someone like him tick. i want to bring in human behavior expert wendy walsh now. in the wikileaks case, also young, both millennials. do you think this is sort of generational? whether he is a hero or a traitor, depending who you talk to, he is either. >> yeah. it is very interesting because it seems to be divided based on age. i've been paying close attention to the comments on facebook and twitter. on facebook of course which tends to have a slightly older demographic at least in my world they all think he is a traitor. but on twitter they think he is a hero which tends to have a much younger demographic. i think that when we talk about these millenniums we have to remember this emerging psyche of people who think globally before they think locally. and this is a threat to governments that he could quickly esconfidence himself in
4:40 pm
hong kong and have new friends there because of so many millennials have been connected to each other on the internet for so many years and they've been saving the planet, remember, the whole planet since kindergarten. >> that's what they think. that is what they think at least but he seems to have this sort of holier than thou moral compass about him, right, that says okay. it's okay for me to break my oath that i wouldn't give away these nsa secrets. what does that say about his character if he says it is okay to do that but i did take an oath? >> well, you know, there is a lot of banterring the word narcissism around. i want to make a distinction between a true narcissistic personality disorder and a high level of narcissistic behavior. you have to be narcissistic in order to run for office. you certainly as greenspan once said in his book if you have what it takes to be president you don't deserve to be president. because of these narcissistic behaviors. we look at this young man and sure he had to think
4:41 pm
individually and make these choices. some people are saying our loose social bonds made him kind of do this. you could also argue that he's a millennium guy who is actually brave, who has been able to take this risk knowing full well the consequences. let's think back. how long has it been since we had big youth protests, the '60s? maybe there was a little in occupy movement and they went away and went right back on their i-phones when the economy picked up again. here is a young man who is, you know, doing an act of civil disobedience and is fully expecting to take the confidence kwe kwenss no different than dr. martin luther king did. >> what is the difference do you think in the world, i'll ask tom and then go to wendy, in the world he lived in and grew up in. she mentioned dr. martin luther king. what is the difference now for someone who is a millennial to think it is okay to give away these government secrets and for
4:42 pm
this intelligence? is it something that he doesn't know about the world or something that he does know about the world because of the information age we live in? >> my opinion what i've heard him say publicly makes me think he is politically about as ignorant as anybody i've ever heard and naive. >> you think he is naive. >> extremely naive. so to think that he should save the world himself by giving up confidential information or breaking the law, you know, we have 800 thousand plus people in this country with top-secret clearance with access to the most sensitive classified material. we have people in the military that can push the nuclear button if they chose to. do we want them just thinking for themselves and assuming that their leaders don't know what they're doing and they should take the law in their own hands, take action into their own hands, government policy into their own hands? i don't think we want a future with that situation. i think that's why we want people to adhere to the promises that they made. if he wanted to bring this policy to an end for the good of the order there are many ways he
4:43 pm
