4:12 am
>> reporter: the expectation-setting game has already begun four days out. the clinton campaign, for example, says trump needs to display the same kind of platform specifics as clinton will on monday, while republicans argue, scott, that it's clinton who needs to turn in a near flawless performance, given how much more experience she has on a debate stage than trump does. >> and we'll have the debate live rht nancy, thanks so much. now, tonight we have an investigation into u.s. military intelligence and whether vital information was withheld from the president. our story centers on central command in tampa, florida which covers the middle east. intelligence is always debated by analysts. it's supposed to be. but two federal investigations are looking into whether conclusions were spun to

4:14 am
which had the effect of painting a rosier picture in final reports delivered to general austin and his staff. but it didn't stop there. in one instance centcom's director of intelligence, major general steven r. grove, blocked a negative assessment of iraq's military from the president's daily brief, a top-secret intelligence summary viewed only by the president and his closest advisers. pentagon's defense intelligence agency concluded iraqi security forces wouldn't be ready to retake mosul, iraq's second largest city, before the end of the year. in tampa centcom's iraq analysts agreed. but according to sources, general grove ordered the assessment kept out of the president's brief until after his boss, general austin, testified to congress about the iraqis' progress.
4:15 am
>> reporter: making the case for an additional $715 million for the program. to stall the negative assessment from getting to the president, centcom senior staff asked for revisions. >> we're about where we said that we would be in the execution of our military campaign plan. >> reporter: and on march 3rd austin told congress the "train and equip" strategy was working and that isis was on the run. >> the fact is that he can no longer do what he did at the hold new territory. he has assumed a defensive crouch in iraq. >> reporter: last fall, after the pentagon began its investigation into allegations of intelligence manipulation -- >> i don't want intelligence shaded by politics. >> reporter: -- the president laid out his expectation that intelligence never be distorted. >> we can't make good policy unless we've got good, accurate, hardheaded, clear-eyed intelligence.
4:16 am
statement to cbs news he said he never directed anyone at centcom to adjust or delay intelligence, nor would he have tolerated such actions. his director of intelligence, general grove, declined to comment. he was rotated out of centcom this past may. the inspector general's investigation, scott, is ongoing. >> jim axelrod, thanks. coming up next, a massive e-mail breach at yahoo!. and later, honoring the man who

so all they feel is love wishing you love, sleep and play. pampers for many the shootings in tulsa and charlotte are proof of police bias. but research confirms it's not just the cops. here's dr. jon lapook. >> most people are biased. according to our research, the majority of americans show some degree of unconscious negative attitudes towards minorities. >> reporter: nyu psychologist david amodio studies the science of racial bias and prejudice. in this test subjects are shown a picture of a black or white male carrying either a gun or a harmless object and must make a quick decision to shoot or not shoot. >> and now you are in the role of a police officer and what's been found is that if the person who appears is black and they're holding a cell phone or a soda can people are more likely to
4:24 am
they were white. >> reporter: one study found subjects were about 30% more likely to shoot an unarmed black person than an unarmed white person. >> when we've used eye tracking in that task, what we find is that the eyes always go to the person's face first and then tracks down to see what's in their hand. >> reporter: so they see their color first. >> yeah. >> reporter: and they may make a biased decision based on that. >> and it's automatic. it happens within 100 or 200 milliseconds. >> reporter: can you betrained not to automatically look at the face? >>e the laboratory and we found it's effective in reducing bias in shooting. >> reporter: in the lab focusing on the object rather than the race reduces mistaken shooting of unarmed blacks by as much as 45%. >> oftentimes we need to make a snap decision, and it can take effort and some time to overcome an automatic bias. >> reporter: one big question is how research like this in the controlled setting of a lab applies to real-life situations in the field where so many unpredictable things can happen. >> fascinating. doctor, thanks very much.
