because that is an innocent -- incentive for al qaeda. we have done things in the intelligence world. we no lots of things that are going on. we have disruption tactics. when the president says something like that it -- the people that actually do it or the cia are going to say we have a source or we have a bug some place, and the people who really know that business come in each morning with their fingers crossed 40e7ing they have not lost that source because those sources go wayover night. >> you heard lara logan the veteran cbs news correspondent who slammed the obama administration for saying the taliban have weakened in

even exposed. most of the 13,000 people who got the shots are probably not going to get sick. we have to track them and the cdc.gov is going out and following them for several weeks to make sure they don't get sick. >> we can't necessarily trust the cdc.gov or state health department will contact people received the tainted vials. people should contact their doctor. >> correct. >> it is important people too panic especially those that got it from a pharmacy. >> if he received it from the tainted pharmacy, i am familiar with the case of a young woman who actually did she is in the hospital very, very sick. what do you suggest families do? >> if someone gets the shot and gets symptoms of meningitis they should probably be treated. what symptoms? headache, nausea, fever,

type of pharmacy which it sounds like they should regulate this. what do you think? there is not federal jurisdiction over this middleman pharmacy for the fda. unit i say government over reach i believe there should be regulations and law that is allows the fda to go in and monitor the situation. many of them are very safe many are effective. but without that over reach you can't be sure the sterilization procedures are in place. >> be weary of all things injected into our body. it's not like it's a vitamin. that seems a little less harmless. >> make sure the stretreatment are getting is something you need. it is 25 minutes after the hour. coming up big bird is now at the center of tanks in a heated
