7:04 am
veterans issues, hillary clinton appeared at times eager to tackle specifics, while donald trump tried to deflect questions that sought specifics. at the top, the two sides agreed to a rhetorical cease-fire and tried to persuade a nation that they have what it takes. >> primetime televised forum, they appeared separately, but agreed to avoid harsh attacks that have dominated the campaign. >> i think that's exactly right >> to a minimum, absolutely. >> the focus, foreign policy on iraq, clinton again admitting supporting the war was a blunder. >> i have said that my voting to give president bush that authority was from my perspective my mistake. >> the republican nominee denied backing the war when it first started, which he did before turning against it months later. >> i was against the war in iraq because i said it is going to
7:05 am

7:07 am
released just as she was taking the stage, and it indicates that he and she shared similar motivations for using a private account. >> had i communicated this information by following prescribed protocols, i would have been imprisoned. >> she said the material she sent and received wasn't sensitive enough to merit the punishment he described. >> there were no headers. there was no statement, top i communicated about classified material on a wholly separate system. i took it very seriously. ful. >> it came on the same day that house democrats released a long 2009 e-mail to clinton from former secretary of state, colin powell, describing an approach to e-mail clinton would go on to emulate. what i did do was have a personal computer that was
7:08 am
communicate without it going through the state department servers. >> secretary powell and close aides to former secretary rice used private e-mail accounts. >> clinton has always argued she was just following the leads set by others. >> my predecessors did the same thing. and many other people in the government. >> powell thought to distance himself from the controversy last months, telling ""people magazine"" her people have been trying to pin it on me and insisting clinton was using her private server for a year before i sent her a memo he tellinger wh -- telling her what i did. the e-mail was sent days after clinton started her new job. in a statement, maryland democratic alijah cummings said if they were truly concerned with transparency, they would be getting secretary powell's e-mails. >> powell said he didn't save
7:09 am
actions and clintons. the state department was a technological backwater, with a clunky e-mail system. when clinton arrived, the system improved and the rules were much more rigorous. >> thanks, nancy. john heilemann is managing editor and co-host of the circuit. returns to show time, a division of cbs this sunday. good morning. >> awesome to see all three of you back here at the s it feels like school is back in session. >> it is. >> looking rather snappy yourself. >> thank you, sir. >> the colin powell disclosures, do they have an impact on the clinton campaign or the presidential election? >> i think probably not in the long run, but i do think there is a lot of people and a lot of people in brooklyn who are been insisting that feel as though they get vindication from the e-mail because she has insisted
7:10 am
they were hanging him out to dry. this e-mail is pretty striking in the sense that it was delivered the day after she became secretary of state. so it at least gives credence to the notion that she was following powell? her mind. >> it does say be careful. >> if shyou think she was slopp which a lot of people do, she went way further, but i didn't make up this colin powell thing. >> man see made a good point too, technology was different then compared to what it is now. >> it was different, although again, all the things colin powell did, he did not set up a server in his home, which raised a lot of questions. >> i keep hoping this campaign is going to be more about hillary clinton's e-mails and more than about what donald trump's position on immigration is from day-to-day. >> more than those two things.
7:11 am
country. let's have a discussion about economic policy. they tried to talk about national security. did that happen? did we have a good contrast in the two candidates. >> the e-mail issue a legitimate issue. it took up an awful lot of her time and she was defensive. it was brought up by one of the audience members, so you can't avoid that. the veteran who brought up the issue and challenged her and put her on the defensive. you can't get around it. >> but not in that forum last night, but yesterday, donald trsa automatic sequestration deals. >> it is a big deal. it is interesting, because she answers, and she answers in full and in a more loyal leely way, they didn't get to cover a lot of ground. trump does not have all that much to say on a lot of issues,
7:12 am
some of them, many of them, were problematic in a variety of ways. he continues to insist that he was against the iraq war from the beginning, and there is ample evidence that he was for it when it started when you keep saying that over and over, because lying about it reeatedly. >> you think he should be called on that? >> yes, politicians should be called on it when they lied. he praised vladimir putin, generals have been reduced to rubble. highly controversial, both side ammunition to attack each other and i can't imagine a lot of americans are like okay great, more attacks. >> a preview of the date. >> thank you, john. president obama on his way home from a six day trip to asia in his last day in laos. met with asian leaders and settled a dispute who threatened him with foul language. margaret brennan in laos. good morning, margaret. >> reporter: good morning. at a closing press conference,
7:13 am
sensitive issues that have disrupted this final visit to asia. despite scuttling a meeting with rodr rod rerca calling him a son of bitch. >> did he offer his apology to you? >> i don't take these comments personally because it seems as repeatedly. including directed at the pope and others. >> mr. obama also tried to smooth over his botched rival in china when a missing airline staircase forced him to exit out of the belly of air force one. he disputed it was somehow symbolic of his frustrated efforts for american power toward asia. >> this theory about my
7:14 am
the short stairs in china, yes, i think that's overblown. >> but it was a tense trip for the president. nuclear north korea rattled nerves with three ballistic missiles. charlie, the president is leaving with a win. he convinced china to sign on to vietnam era rift with this historic visit to laos. >> thanks, margaret. the pentagon says a russian fighter flue within ten feet of a surveillance yet over the black sea. they say the jet was in international airspace and a russian officials say it was tlieg toward russia's border. heightened alert this morning for the potential threat

7:16 am
u.s. law enforcement is aware of and has been aware of and tracking for some time. they have been tracking this change and approach by isis and believe that law enforcement sources have told us that there is still this need for a continued vigilance among law enforcement and military as well, even though there has been this change in tactic. now the bulletin was recently distributed last week. we're told that its release is not meant to coincide with the upcoming attacks, gayle. >> jeff, thank you very much. a controversial chemical in florida is delayed this morning after a public outcry. more than 650 zika cases in florida, 56 are non-travel related. they forced officials to push back today's spraying until tomorrow morning. david begnaud is there. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, that aerial spraying, the plane will
7:17 am
me, low altitude, who authorized the spraying to give them another day. >> that's what the experts are telling me. >> you're lying. >> please, this is information. >> reporter: over and over, they shouted, as they tried to tell him based on the level of experts, it is harmless humans in the doses being used to kill adult mosquitos. >> i will not get strayed here. >> many people doubted evidence from the cdc, stating zika can cause babies to be born with devastating deformities. >> raise your hand if you're skeptical about microcephaly and zika? >> there are a lot of people denying devastating birth defects are linked.
7:18 am

candidate himself. >> reporter: good morning. unlike any other candidate in modern history, donald trump is using his businesses for his campaign, his headquarters is at trump tower. presses conference often at trump properties. he has to pay fair market value so we crunched the numbers to see how much he is essentially paying himself. >> i didn't need to do this, folks. i'm spending a lot of money. >> reporter: donald trump has contributed more than $52 million to his presidential campaign. but the republican nomin offset some of that by pouring 7.2 million dollars or just over 8% of the money his campaign has spent through july into his own businesses. since trump moved into the general election phase, that spending has increased. during the first year of his campaign, he spent on average 500,000 a month at his own companies, but as his campaign ramped up from the end of june through july, he spent 1.2 million at trump businesses. >> there is a good chance that

? good morning to our viewers in the west. it is thursday, september 8th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including the presidential dueling over foreign policy. we'll fact check the comments they made at the forum. here's the eye opener@8. >> it was a warm-up for the three presidential debates to come including the part afterwards where both sides said they won. >> was a national security forum but questions about clinton's e-mails took up about a third of her time. >> technology was different then. >> it was different, although, yeah, all the things that colin powell did, he did not have a server in his home.
8:01 am
sensitive issues that have disrupted this final visit to asia. >> my reception here, as far as i can tell, has been terrific. >> almost 15 years after 9/11 federal officials release this bulletin that highlight the threat from terrorism. >> it led city officials to beg the mayor to give them another day to convince the residents this is a good idea. >> you have to pay how much for them? apple has gotten rid of the headphone jack. >> isn't that a risky move now that we'll have to make this change and now we have to pay for it, too? >> absolutely risky. >> i always wanted to pay $160 for something that will immediately get lost in my backpack. ? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. hillary clinton and donald trump laid out their commander in
8:02 am
they both made misleading or inaccurate statements. >> classified material has a header which says top secret, secret, confidential. nothing -- and i will repeat this and this is verified in the report by the department of justice. none of the e-mails sent or received by me had such a header. >> i happened to hear hillary clinton say that ias i was totally against the war in iraq. again, she made a mistake on libya, she made a terrible mistake on libya. and the next thing -- not only did she make the mistake, but complicated it by having no management once they bombed you know what out of gadhafi. >> clinton's claim about the classification headers is misleading. there were no headers, but fbi director james comey said three
8:03 am
information. comey also said any reasonable person in secretary clinton's position should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation. >> donald trump said back in 2002 that he supported the invasion of iraq. he came out against it after the war began. and this is what he said about libya in february 2011. >> gadhafi and libya is killing thousands of people. nobody knows how bad it is. and we're have soldiers all over the middle east and we're not bringing them in to stop this horrible carnage. now, we should go in, we should stop this guy, which would be very easy and very quick. >> that was more than five months before libya's kick tithe tater was overthrown. in laos this morning president obama said every time donald trump speaks he becomes more sure that trump is not qualified to be president. he was asking a question from our margaret brennan.
8:04 am
what you're talking about, you actually have to have done your homework, and when you speak, it should actually reflect thought out policy that you can implement. and i have confidence that in in fact people look at his track record or lack thereof, they'll make a good decision. >> major garrett has covered that from the beginning. good morning. last night trump said he has a plan to defeat isis. >> the first time trump said i'm actually going to ask generals to give me a plan in 30 days. whether that's a realtime table or not, the most important thing he's trying to do is give the american public an idea that he'll be held accountable to his own timetable and getting them to imagining him as commander in chief which is something he's got to do because that decision
8:05 am
election is about. >> does he poll better among military people than she does? >> some polls indicate that, there is a dissatisfaction within some service ranks with president obama's leadership. they don't believe these wars have been prosecuted effectively enough. >> he was asked a question about a confidential security briefing earlier in the day and he shared some information about that. were you surprised that he was so open? >> i was. i've never been part of these briefings but talking to people who have been, they are exactly that. they're informational. they're not about policies recommended to a president. and they are driven more by the questions that the nominees ask about underlying security or intelligence information than what the briefers bring in. and what trump said is, i know now that the president's not doing what they're recommending. i'm not exactly sure either what he means by that or if the briefers came in with some
8:06 am
recommended that the president hasn't in fact done. >> but when he was asked about it, how can you say that? he said i can read body language. >> which also puts him partially qualified to be a jury consultant. >> the briefing is simply to brief the president rather than to recommend a policy. >> exactly. and usually what the candidates ask is where the real information is derived. so your level of curiosity actually determines how briefings are. >> what did we learn from his speech yesterday on defense? >> that he wants to be the next ronald reagan in the sense that he wants to grow the military in every dimension, spend a lot of money on it but not use it very much. and that's the kind of inherent contradic contradiction. a much larger military but fewer ambitions as far as nation building or trying to build more democracies. a bigger military with an uncertain purpose. >> major, always good to have

woman in the world for business should she win the election. but she's not running a company right now so these therefore not on the list. >> sorry. >> i was going to say, hillary, the cover says hillary is good for business. is she good for business? >> hillary has a lot more qualifications in business than one would think. trump has represented himself as the business candidate. but if you look at her relationships, her steadiness, the story really concludes there's a lot there. >> 22% of the women on this list for an industry that's been criticized for not a lot of gender equality. why do you think so many of them have succeeded in the tech industry? >> i think it's a little ironic to see that number. these are mostly women at large companies who have worked all the way through. the problem that we see in the tech sector is actually more in the start-up industry. you would think it would be better because there's so many younger people running those companies, but it's just not

8:36 am
you have to do west side a fuller description to make sure that profiling doesn't occur. >> how do you block that profiling? using an algorithm that blocks certain words? >> nextdoor is a social network and works like other social networks. you have open text box and you type. we created that was the way neighbors post crime and safety information. the first thing we are trying to do is make sure that when they post, they are actually observing criminal or so we first say stop and think before you post. algorithm that helps with that. >> are there people in the community enthusiastic about these changes? >> we haved overwhelming positive feedback from
8:37 am
right to post? we are not blocking anything. this isn't about censorship but it's better for the neighborhood and it's truly a win/win:you're considered a person of color. people could call you a dark-skinned man that is breaking into a car walking in the neighborhood. did it feel personal to you, this particular attack on your website? >> it's a personal issue for me and for all of our employees. we joined the company and created the company because we believed in bringing people together. in terms of racism, i mean, it's one of the most divisive thi in our society today. we want to be a part of the solution. >> you say people originally profile and not aware they are racially profiling? what do you mean? >> this is about unconscious bias and invoking race without a fuller description and not realizing when you do that, an entire class of people can be held subject to that description. >> conscious and implicit bias? >> exactly right. it's a nuance thing. >> i don't think -- >> nextdoor is not the first organization to come into

>> you play a former cia agent, right? jack dooalton? what is the key to the relationship? how do you work together? >> bickering. >> i think jack is more or less his metaphorical swiss army nice, human in form. >> yeah, no. that's what he does. he kind of comes in. i mean, you got a bunch of dudes shooting at you with guns. i can't use the gun because i have an aversi can. >> he asks questions. >> you know what i heard about the show? people would say you could learn stuff from the show. tricks and stuff that they do, that it's a family show and that people really got to enjoy it at all ages. i think that is good. >> i think it has a little bit of something for everybody. it's got some hard -- you know, it's got some drama at the same time. >> romance? >> action. romance! >> i like romance. >> i like romance. thank you so much. great to have you guys here. >> thank you. >> we are cheering you on.
