accident happened. what caused a woman driving her suv to go sailing over an overpass and crashing that vehicle, killing everyone inside, all seven people. here's what they do know. according to eyewitnesses, police say a woman, 45 years old was driving this suv down a six-lane highway called the bronx river park way. for some reason, they don't know why, she hit the middle barrier, a concrete barrier, the median. it's only about three feet high. witnesses say she overcompensated and made a sharp right, crossing over three lanes of traffic going in the very same direction, hit a curb that went over a fence, only again about two to three feet high, and went sailing about 50 to 60 feet.
control of the suv. it could have been, authorities say, any number of things. maybe something physically went wrong with her. perhaps there was a mechanical failure, a distraction of some kind. these are all the things that they'll be looking at as some of the possibilities, don. >> all right. susan candiotti in new york. susan, thank you very much. this stretch of road is no stranger to bad wrecks. back in 2006, six people were killed in almost the exact same spot. i spoke to steve casamo about the safety of this particular roadway. >> back in 2010, this bridge was one of several in new york state that were determined to be functionally y
functionally inoperable. what that definition means, it doesn't mean the bridges are necessarily unsafe, but it means they don't meet today's standards, contemporary standards. so these bridges, in other words, theedneeded to be brough to date to meet today's safety standards, and this particular portion of the bronx river parkway, this bridge that this vehicle went off today, it was declared in 2010 to be functionally obsolete. >> that was steve casenbaum. the search for a missing crewman after a sailing accident killed three others. the yacht was head fed from newport beach, california to encinada. they found the bodies near the coronado islands. they are searching 500 square miles of ocean. terrorist concerns for

that the fight against global extremism isn't over. so-called lone wolf attackers, like the man who plotted to blow up times square, the underwear bomber and the terrorist from this year remain a threat. >> we have al-qaeda franchises in places like yemen, iraq, which remain dangerous, and we have the idea of al-qaeda, the idea of global jihad, which inspires a small number of fanatics to commit a mass murder and suicide. >> reporter: like people killed in the drone last fall, they are keeping up on the pressure offal-alaki's sponsor who are still bent on killing us.
>> it shows that dictators could be toppled through twitter, not terror. that's not al-qaeda's m.o. >> it's important to remain perspective. >> 1700 have died because of terrorism. about 300 people die from drownings. >> are we any safer today since osama bin laden was killed? in about 20 minutes, we'll get some expert insight from retired general. he's looking to put olympics on top of missiles as part of olympic security. u.s. forces are trying to take down a notorious warlord. gvital and hurtle us all into space. which would render retirement planning unnecessary. but say the sun rises on december 22nd,

carolina road. he said edwards was driving erratically after learning that young had received $725,000 from wealthy donor buddy melon without telling edwards. young said, i was scared for my life. it was bizarre. young told the court, i said, if he wasn't going to tell the truth, i was going to tell the truth. edwards responded to him, you can't hurt me, andrew. you can't hurt me. defense attorney abby lowell asked young if he had threatened edwards with exposure of the whole story. young said he and his family did everything that he, edwards, asked us to do. he completely abandoned himself from us. he walked away from us and i was extremely angry. drilling down on the cost of shepherding john edwards' mistress around the country while she was on the run from the media, andrew young admitted under cross examination that he got thousands of dollars more from two rich benefactocs than

pakistan. thank you, sir, good to see you. it's an anniversary and a lot of people are glad about this anniversa anniversary, let's say that. he's a contributing general to the intelligence center. one year after osama's death, are we safer because of it? >> we are safer, absolutely, don. we've heard a lot of analytics that it's not time for a high five, and nobody took a breather and said this is wonderful and did victory laps. clearly what is required is vigilance and persistence, and this is an ongoing struggle that's not going to go away in the immediate time frame. it's very much a persistent operation that has to take place in multiple locations around the globe, and our intelligence community with a lot of partners
and a lot of locations are doing a very good job of making sure we're identifying those pockets of radicalism as they appear, identifying the leaders and being able to target them quite effectively. >> general, has the u.s. strategy against terror shifted in the years since bin laden's death? >> well, you know, it really has. clearly our intelligence community has a very, very broad mandate and a lot of partners that are helping in terms of the identification of these leaders. and in fact, even within our own commander control and our own military and our intelligence communities, we have multiple lists of who those known terrorists are, what their leadership infrastructures look like, and where they overlap and enter se int intersect, we get clearance and affect manipulations.
what's happening is we've had a very large presence in places like iraq and very large presence in places like afghanistan. obviously, iraq now we're gone and afghanistan we're drawing down, but we're drawn down in a way we can increase afghanistan forces, give that government a sense of security, allow them to get a little more confident in terms of how they can do their business so they can grow their own capabilities to go after these pockets. now, in other places, don, as you know, like al-qaeda and the arabian peninsula has migrated into yemen. we have a very strong presence there in terms of targeting where we know they are and their types and patterns of activity, and we can go after them. >> i found something very interesting this morning on nbc, and it was said by a senior campaign adviser for obama. >> you're saying president obama
wouldn't ta -- romney wouldn't take that shot? >> i don't think so. he criticized obama and said that he was a high value target. nobody was a higher value target than osama bin laden. >> i'm not sure you want to answer a political question, but we have to go there because this was debated in the media and both camps. you were national security adviser for mitt romney in the obama campaign. do you feel that assertion is true? >> i think it's being politicized, but i cannot support an assertion like that. that's a pure hypothetical. how can someone transfer to someone else a firm statement that an act would occur if that individual were in that position? that's complete fantasy to me. >> wasn't bin laden the main reason that the u.s. invaded afghanistan? he has been dead a year. and can you remind us, do you know what the mission is now? >> what we're doing? yeah, with the defeat of osama
bin laden, that was a major, major accomplishment by our intelligence community and our military. i mean, it truly is a representation of what our military can accomplish and what our national leaders, the types of decisions, that they can make. now, let's be frank. our president made a very tough call. the secretary of defense said don't do it, there are other ways to go after him. the chairman of the joint chiefs at the time said, don't do it, there is another way to go after him. this was a very tough decision on the part of our president and it was executed with incredible precision, and we should all be extremely proud of that. the mission in afghanistan is altering as the afghan people in the government stand up and increase their ability to maintain governance and security in the region. again, let's go back. where did the attack on 9/11 occur in terms of its -- has
that now migrated? [ technical difficulties ] >> we continue in yemen like we used to do, and if they've got it there, we'll apply similar pressure. >> i can't believe it's been a year. i know it sound like a cliche. i cannot believe it's baeen a year since that happened. >> i know, don, it's quite amazing. but again, in that interim period of a year, the pressure we've been able to apply on al-qaeda where it exists, the taliban where they exist in afghanistan is quite remarkable in itself, and all the while, u.s. presence is drawing down and afghan stan will only grow in their capabilities. it's the kind of news that

one of the best known american tragedies, the assassination of robert f. kennedy but now there's a new account of what happened back in that night of 1968. the shooter was sentenced to life but his attorneys are hoping for a new trial. the new story is told by rosemary hughes. she was at the hotel the night kennedy was shot. in an exclusive interview with cnn, she says, there is a part of the story the fbi has ignored all these years. >> there were more than eight
shots, and interesting that you read whatever the fbi issued, everybody said eight shots. not. i wish there were some recordings of me that night. i did give an interview to somebody with a microphone where i said there were at least 12, maybe 14, and i know there was because i heard the rhythm in my head. and i know with the first two or three shots, i wasn't aware. as i said, i thought they were flashbulbs. what has to come out is there was another shooter to my right, and robert kennedy was also to my right, and the shooter was standing to my left on some raised platform. there were two shooters. it must come out on who they were. it must come out who the other shooter is because there definitely was another shooter. >> nina rhodes-hughes says she was never called as a witness in the original trial.
she just topts gwants to get he out. federal judges reviewing that story right now. what if i told you your computer was obsolete, a relic, even if it's brand new, and not years from now, right now, as of this week. that's some of the chatter we're hearing at the google debut of their cloud drive. the tech pro knows everything, and we'll get a google -- to google in a moment here, but in simple terms, okay, explain this cloud thing to us. >> okay, so the idea of the cloud is that instead of having to store your documents are your hard drive or a thumb drive or something else locally, it can be stored in a server so you can access it from any other computer. once you log in with your google credentials, you're on your laptop, a work computer or your phone, you can log in and access all your documents. >> whatever it is, you can go
and get it. you've heard the ads that you can put your pictures, your videos in a cloud. is it safe for everything? >> it's relatively safe, and the big problem, i think, is for certain types of documents. you might not want to put your tax records. you might not want to put really sensitive business documents, and the reason is for right now, google doesn't offer what's called encryption of those files which means there is the off chance that if someone could access your account they could breach those documents. you might not want to put your most sensitive financial documents up there, but for photos and videos and regular word processing files, it's a great way to quickly and easily store things. >> i want to go back over a little one on one because we've been talking about this cloud for a year now. let's get to this google drive where we said your computer may be obsolete right now. you know you've got something when your competitors are freaking out about this right now. why is my computer, possibly this brand new mac book pro, or
whatever it is that i have, why is it maybe obsolete? >> it's not that it would be obsolete, it's that google is kind of pushing everybody to store everything in the cloud. it's no longer that important about what you have, what specs your mac book has, but whether or not it's accessible from anywhere. some of the biggest competitors against google drive are drop box and microsoft sky drive, and amazon has a service that all do very similar things. but the advantage that google has is a lot of people use google for e-mail, they use it for search, they use it for google docs and it will work with your existing google accounts. if you have e-mail attachments, if goes on the drive. >> that's a lot of stuff to be out there. but, you know, and even with that, i say that because some of the legal mumbo jumbo from google this weeks raised some eyebrows. is there worry that google could
possibly sell your information? >> sure. that's part of the problem. when you look at their competitors like microsoft and drop box, they make it very clear you own your stuff. they're giving you permission. they're not going to do anything with your files and you own it all. google's services are more broad, and depending how you read it or how you interpret it, they might be able to use it in advertising or they might be able to sell advertising on top of it or do other things with your content. so that has a lot of people concerned. to be clear, this is something google does with all their terms of service, so they make the same claims of service with google and g-mail docs. i think by google but were created maybe in microsoft office or kree yaited some place else, it's understandable people get a little more nervous about who might have potential claims over that content. >> when something like this happens, you know, is this where we go from cassette to dvd or dvd to ipod or whatever?
is this a fad or is this the way the future is going. >> no. this is definitely the way the future is going. there are a lot of notebooks, laptop sold today that don't have a cd-rom at all. don't have a dvd drive. ti pad, tablets and phones, it's more and more common you access documents that way. the idea that instead of taking up storage space on your phone or ipad you can just plug into a server and access the content no matter what system you're on. i think it's really attractive to a lot of people. >> christina? >> yes. >> i think you're right. once i got a phone that worked well, access quickly, the ipad, i wondered why do you need this big thing with all of this -- why do you need it anymore? >> yeah. why do you need to make sure that you have it saved to a certain disk or you've got that file with you. you can just make sure, hey, can i logon to the internet? yep. okay. that means i can grab my files. >> there you go. thank you, christina. we really appreciate it.
have a good one. >> you, too. washington goes hollywood. and for the most part, at least it was funny. >> mr. president, you remember -- you remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? that was hilarious. >> jimmy kimmel zings the president. but mr. obama had some funny lines of his own, including eating a dog. right? the best of the white house correspondence dinner next. first, something more serious. >> two years after the earthquake, the situation is still the same. the people are still under the tents. they don't have electricity. there is no security where they sleep. they are getting raped. in haiti, things are very difficult. before the earthquake, there were rapes happening. now, i can say, it is total disorder.
