2:06 am
the household timer. how big of a timer is it? what's its purpose? was the carrier stopped at security and questioned about it? >> reporter: ron hosko, former assistant director of the fbi. >> what type of person does this? someone who is testing, poking at the bounds of airline security and airport security. and a whole array of fools and clowns and criminals who like to see what the response is. >> reporter: sececity experts say there's concern about the level and quality of security at airports that do not directly serve the united states because they're not subject to tsa regulations. the worry is someone getting a device past that security and eventually connecting to a flight bound for the u.s. elaine, mauritius airport is tightening security. >> chris van cleave from

2:20 am
while the blades on the opposite side is actually going against the wind. >eporter: the end result is a turbine that can slow itself down without needing expensive mechanical brakes which can fail in traditional turbines in high winds like this one did in denmark. >> so there is such a thing as too fast? >> oh, yeah, for sure. >> reporter: askerson, who created the company ice wind, in 20124 has been tinkering with the design for years. from earlier versions like this one in 2007, to today's more refined model. >> is there a future for wind energy in iceland? >> yes, definitely. we expect the cost to decrease -- >> reporter: jonas kettleson with iceland's national energy authority says even if the island is already 100% sustainable there's always room in iceland for new forms of cheap green energy. >> after our financial crisis that we encountered a few years back, people had to rethink.

horrific time of their life.e. >> reporter: on a routine morning at the inland regional center -- >> i'd just finished my first assessment for the day. i heard gunshots. several people yelled "they're shooting at everybody." i saw the reaction on people's faces and the horror. >> reporter: robinson says she immediately trd to call mothers, especially when s.w.a.t. officers burst in. >> weapons are pointed away from us. and that means they're the good guys and they're protecting us. >> reporter: when they were brought outside and saw the dead and wounded -- >> it was horrifying. it was absolutely horrifying. >> reporter: robinson convinced herself she was fine. until she wasn't. >> i think my entire family noticed a change in me. i was panicked. i was jumpy. and i was irritable. >> reporter: but the crisis counselor couldn't diagnose herself. >> i had to hear that from someone else, for me to be able

2:29 am
our new cbs news battleground tracker shshs hillary clinton leadadg sanders by 5 points in iowa. but in new hampshire it's sanders by 14 points. julianna goldman has more. >> thank you, good night, and may the force be with you. >> reporter: feeling the force behind her, a confident hillary clinton deflected attacks from bernie sanders and martin o'mally while setting her sights on the republicans, especially donald trump. >> he is becoming isis' best recruiter. they are going to people showing videos of donald trump insulting islam and muslims -- >> reporter: sunday the gop front-runner said those claims are unsubstantiated. >> just another hillary lie, she lies like crazy about everything. >> reporter: instead of personal insults democrats focused on policy disputes. >> our differences are fairly deep. >> reporter: most of the debate covered national security.
2:30 am
vote to authorize the iraq war. >> secretary clinton is too much into regime change and a little bit too aggressive -- >> senator, you voted for regime change with respect to libya. >> reporter: and on the economy. >> should corporore america love hillary y inton? >> everybody should. >> they ain't going to like me and wall street is going to like me even less. >> rorter: o'mally, who's trailing in the popos, attacked his opponents on gun control -- >> and it's because of the flip-flopping political approach of washington that both of my two colleagues on this stage have repsented there for the last 40 years -- >> whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa -- >> we need common sense -- >> calm down a little bit, martin. >> reporter: with a simple apology, sanders and clinton did calm a tense dispute over a data breach after sanders staffers accessed clinton campaign voter files. >> we should move on. i don't think the american people are all that interested in this. >> the sanders campaign has
2:31 am
accessed that clinton campaign data, that's on top of the staffer fired last week. elaine, clinton said saturday night if elected bill clinton would be a key economic adviser but she'd probably still pick out the flowers and china for state dinners. >> julianna goldman in washington, thank you. on the republican side, battle lines are emejging between two sets of candidates. marco rubio and ted cruz are fighting to become the establishment candidate. while donald trump and jeb bush have been tossing insults at each other. john dickerson spoke to both rubio and bush fororface the nation." >> senator, what is this debate between you and senator cruz about on immigration? >> ted was much -- was open. and in fact was a supporter of legalizing people that were in this country illegally. he was during the debate on the senate bill. he was after the debate on the senate bill. he made it clear multiple occasions that he was against citizenship but he was open to legalization. and then for weeks now on the campmpgn trail he's refuseseto
2:32 am
other night at the debate when he said he did not intend to legalize people. again, trying to find himself some wiggle room. and so the bottom line is that there isn't that big a difference between him and i how to approach immigration. that was the point i was trying to make. this is a serious issuand it needs to be confronted and every republican running for president has supported or supports legalization in some form or fashion of people in this country illegally, even donald trump. he just wants to make them leave the country first then he'll legali them. >> is it about immigration orr are you making a a larger charge about ted cruz and whether he's being honest and truthful with people? >> i think ted wanted to not talk about legalization during the primary and leave himself the option of being for it in a general election. obviously i don't think that's fair to the electorate. it's not the first time. there are multiple issues on which he's tried to do these sorts of things. for example, when the free trade agreement was up he wroten opinion piecen "the wall street journal," he wrote it
2:33 am
it. i don't know why, he got some pressure on the fast track authority. he's done it on votes on farm issues. changed his vote on the floor of the senate. there's s ways some of that. because new facts are presented. i think my concern, if you're going to attack someone on a policy issue, you need to be clear about where you stand theish issue and where you stood in the past. >> when voters are making their decision should they be thinking about, what does ted cruz think about immigration? or the larger issue, is ted cruz being honest? >> when you spend your time telling people you're a clear talker, you say what you mean, everyone else isis sell-out and you're the only purist, i think it's fair toes, hold on a second. here's where you've been in the past on some issues and here's where you are now. the truth is everyone running on the republican side supports strong conservative positions. we have differences and we should discuss those. national security, for example. when you run by telling everody you're the only purist in the field, the only one who's a consistent conservative, then yoyo record is going to o ve a
2:34 am
case has proven well after the immigration debate ended he was still talking about how he was open to legalizing people and how important it was to bring people out of the shadows and so forth. >> how much of a national security issue do you think it is there is now an open conversation in the republican party about banning muslims from america and that a majority of the party agages with that idea? right now do you think that's a national security problem? >> well, the statements that people have made, it's not a serious policy proposal. so it was made for the purposes of recapturing the headlines. i mean, donald trump had falaln out t the headlines, rightfully, we had the largest terrorist attack in american history since 9/11. he wanted to get back in the headlines and came up with something spectacular and outrageous so that people would respond to it and he could recapture the headlines. it's not a serious proposal. >> you in a rally in new hampshire said trump is a jerk, a chaos candidate, he's not serious and can't insult his way to the presidency. aren't those all insulul? are you trying to insult your
2:35 am
>> no, i'm trying to point out he's not a serious cdidate. his answer about the nuclear triad, for example, was mind-blowing. i mean, not having any knowledge about what the subject is, where you have this exclusive responsibility of the president of the united states as commander in chief of the armed forc to know when and how to e our nuclear deterrent. he has no knowledge about this stuff. he thought -- now he's come out saying putin is a strong man and a great guy, when he's trying to destabilize our relationship with our allies. he's not a serioususandidate. >> why is the nuclear triad so important, for people who don't understand what that is in a world where islamic jihad is something people are so concerned about? >> it's important because it's been part ofofhe security arrangngent that has kept usus safe since the post-world war ii era. and we've seen a lack of investment in it and we need to refurbish it and strengthen it. the fact that he wouldn't know what it is, that's one of those questions i think you have to answer in a thoughtful way if you're running for president of
2:36 am
it's not just that. ke said isis is not a threat two months ago. he get gets his news from the shows. i know that warms your heart that he wakes up in the morning and gets his foreign policy and military advice from people that go on your show but that not a serious man. and d don't take -- look.. when he insults me personally, i don't take it personally. and he shouldn't take it personally either. but someone needs to call him out. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. we are in the age of ageless. age neutral. age defiant. age agnostic. olay is a rveyor of ageless. only the beses1% of ingredients make it into our products. for transformed skin without expensive brands or procedures. it's the ultimate beauty victory. nobody has any idea how old you are. with olay, you age less. so you can be ageless. olay. ageless.

2:39 am
the report for "60 minutes." >> how's it going today? >> all right. >> it's your birthday today? >> yeah. >> not what you want to be doing on your birthday, huh. >> reporter: what you're looking at is police footage of the making of a confidential informant. narcotics officer jason webber is recruititg a college student t caught making two small marijuana sales to become a ci. >> you expressed interest you'd want`to help yourself out. >> yeah. >> we're always trying to go up the chain. so what we want to go is have them buy from their supplier or suppliers. >> reporter: webber is the chief of a four-county drug task force in eastern north dakota and western minnesota. how important do you think confidential informants are to your task? >> confidential informants are really important to law enforcement across the country they make our jobs easier because they are already the ones that know the drug dealers and rely on them. >> most of the kids that you're
2:40 am
marijuana sales? >> the big majority, yeah. >> reporter: webber's jurisdiction includes the campus of the north dakota state college of science with some 3,000 students. marijuana is now legal in four states and the district of columbia. but not in north dakota. where selling even a small amount on a campus is a class "a" felony with a maximum sentence o@ 20 years in prison, a fine of $20,000, or both. >> two felonies. >> reporter: this young man andrew saddic was caught on tape by another confidential informant making two sales for a total of $80. webber has called saddic in before charging him to present a choice. agree to work as a ci, wear a wire, and makendercover drug buys from three people, twice eaea. or be charged with two class "a" felonies. >> potentially the max is 40 years in prison, $40,000 fine.
2:41 am
>> yeah. >> obviously you're probably not gogog to get 40 years. but there's a possibility you're going to get prison time. yeah, there is. okay? that's probably not the way to start off your young adult life and career, right? deal. webber told us most students do. part of the agreement he signed, keep the whole thing strictly to himself. >> you can't tell anybody you're working for me. for obvious s asons. >> reporter: an award-winning student of electrical technology, andrew saddic did as he was told. never told any of his close friends about being an informant. never called a lawyer. and didn't breathe a word to his parents, tammy and john saddic. the saddics are a ranching family, still struggling with the dead of theiolder son in a train accident years earlier, leaving andrew an only child. >> if andrew had told you that he was thinking of becoming a
2:42 am

3:31 am
campaign trail he's refused to other night at the debate when he said he did not intend to legalize people. again, trying to find himself some wiggle room. and so the bottom line is that there isn't that big a difference between him and i how to approach immigration. that was the point i was trying to make. this is a serious issue and it needs to be confronted andvery republican running for president has supportt order supports legalization in some form or fashion of people in this country illegally, even donald trump. he just wants to make them leave the country first then he'll legalize them. >> this is about immigration or a larger charge about ted cruz and whether he's being honest and truthful with people? >> i think ted wanted to not talk about legalization during the primary and leave himself the option of being g r it in a general election. obviously i don't think that's fair to the electorate. it's not the first time. there are multiple issues on which he's tried to do these things. when the free trade agreement was up he wrote an opinion piece in the "wall street journal" with paul ryan.
3:32 am
i don't know why, he got some authority. he's done it on votes on farm issues. chanand his vote on the flflr of the senate. there'e'always some of that. because new facts are presented. i think my concern, if you're going to attack someone on a policy issue, you need to be clear about where you stand on the issue and where you stood on the past. >> when voterer are making their decision should they be thinking about, what does ted cruz think about immigration? or the larger issue, is ted cruzp being honest? >> wn you spend your time telling people you're a clear talker, youuay what t u mean, everyone else is a sell-out and everybody else is a -- it's fair to say, here's where you were on the past on issues and here's where you are now. everyone on the rereblican side supporor strong conservativiv positions. we have differences and we should discuss those. national security, for example. when you run by telling everybody you're the only purist in the field, the only one who's a consistent conservative, then your rourd is going to have a
3:33 am
case has proven well after the immigration debate ended he was still talking about how he was open to legalizing people and ho important it was to bringng people out of thee shadodo and so forth. >> how much of a national security issue do you think it is there is now an open conversation in the republican party about banning muslims from america and that a majority of the party agrees with that idea? right now do you think that's a national security problem? >> well, the statements that people have made, it's not a serious policy proposal. so it was made for the purposes of recapturing the headlines. i mean, donald trump had fallen out of the headlines,s, rightfully, we had the largest terrorist attack in american history since 9/11. he wanted to get back in the headlines and came up with something spectacular and outrageoeo so he could recapture the headlines. it's not a serious proposal. >> you in a rally in new hampshire said trump is a jerk, a chaos candidate, he's not seriousnd can't insmlt his way to the presidency. en't those all insults?
3:34 am
not a serious candidate. his answer about the nuclear triad, for example, was mind-blowing. i mean, not having any knooledge about what the subject is, where you have this e elusive responsibility of the president of the united states as commander in chief of the armed forces to know when and how to use our nuclear deterrent. he has no knowledge about this stuff. he thought -- now he's come out saying putin is a strong man and a great guy, when he's trying to destabilize our relationship wuts our allies. he's not a serious candidate. >> why is the nuclear triad so important in a world where islamic jihad is something people are so concerned about? >> it'important because it's been part of the security arrangement that has kept us safe since the post world war ii era. and we've seen a lack of investment in it and reneed to refurbish it and strengthen it. the fact that he wouldn't know what it is, that's one off those questions i think you have to
3:35 am
you're running for president of the united states. it's not just that. he said isis is not a threat two months ago. he get gets his news from the shows. know that warmsour heart at he wakes up in the morning and gets his foreign policy and military advice from people that go on your show but that's not a serious man. wh he insults m@ personally, i don't take it personally. and he shouldn't take it personally either. but someone needs to call him out.

people as confidential informant informants until he was hired seven years ago by the family of rachel hoffman, a recent college graduate who was caught with a large stash of marijuana and a few valium and ecstasy pills. it was her second marijuana arrest. >> she was caught by a llahassee police dedertment and tolol that if she didn't become a confidential informant, she was looking at four years in prison. >> reporter: she signed up. and a few weeks later was sent out to make her first undercover drug buy. it was to be one of the biggest in tallahassee's recent history. 1,500 ecstasy pills, 1 1/2 ounces of cocaine, and a agun. >> had she ever dealt in any of those things? >> no. >> had she ever fired a gun? >> no. rachel was a pothead. and rachel sold marijuana to her friendnd out of her home.
