7:01 am
welcome to "the early show" here on a tuesday morning. chris wragge along with erica hill. you're seeing pictures of an f-15 eagle strike down over libya late last night. >> breaking news we are following this morning. we want to get you the very late evidentest on that american fighter jet. you can see it crashed and what happened to the two on bors, david martin joins us now from the pentagon with the very latest on their status. david, good morning. >> reporter: well, the headline is that both pilots survived with minor injuries. what happened was, last night, this plane was operating east of benghazi so over rebel-held territory and it suffered some sort of mechanical failure. both pilots had to eject. but they were recovered by rebels who are in an unofficial alliance with the united states and the rebels started the process of returning them to the united states or to the united states forces.
7:02 am
the u.s. has been in contact with both pilots. they describe themselves as having only minor injuries. one is already back in u.s. hands. the other is in the process of being returned. >> david, this was apparently a mechanical failure and this happened in rebel-held territory. what do we know, though, about mow a gadhafi's capability in terms of tag down coalition planes? have these strikes essentially knocked out that possibility or is it still a possibility? >> no, they have knocked out all of their fixed surface-to-air missile sites and all of the radars that would guide them, but there are still mobile surface-to-air missile sites, including those shoulder-fired missiles you see frequently being toted around out in the field. however, those usually cannot reach as high as american planes fly. american planes can now bomb from over 20,000 feet, so they
7:03 am
are out of range. but as the no-fly zone is extended westward toward tripoli, they expect to get over territory where gadhafi's forces have these mobile surface-to-air missiles. so the air defense threat is not totally gone. >> so something to keep in mind there. there's a lot of focus this morning on what the actual end goal is here of the mission and a lot of talk in this country about the fact that the president has repeatedly called for moammar gadhafi to step down. what is the likelihood, though, that this operation ends with gadhafi still in power? >> reporter: well, there's no predicting it. the operation -- the military operation has a limited goal of protecting civilians from attack by gadhafi, so you can see where you could protect civil yaps from attack without getting rid of gadhafi, but i'm sure that the u.s. is not going to regard this operation as a success unless gadhafi goes, because not
7:04 am
only is there this military operation going on, there are sanctions and all manner of efforts to keep him isolated. so you can see this end game to the military operation where he remains in official power in tripoli, but has no control over the rest of his country. and it's hard to see how he could survive for very long if that were the case. >> david martin at the pentagon this morning, david, thanks. we go now to eastern libya. cbs news correspondent mandy clark has reached the site of that plane crash. >> reporter: officials say the fighter jet was brought down by a mechanical failure rather than any enemy fire. now, it landed east of benghazi which is in the heart of rebel territory. eyewitnesses here say they saw a fireball in the sky and then heard a loud explosion. now, they say that the pilot and the weapons officer has bailed out of the plane before it crashed and they landed in two separate fields near here.
7:05 am
the pilot, apparently, was rescued by a helicopter and the weapons expert was found by locals. they gave him juice and they gave him food. he apparently was a bit afraid when they first came to him, but calmed down when he realized they were friendly. now, all of the locals we spoke to were very grateful for all of the support they have received from the united nations and they say they are very sorry that the plane crashed. mandy clark, cbs news, near benghazi. latest cbs news poll finds 50% of americans approve of the president's handling of the libyan crisis and 29% disapprove. joining us this morning is arizona senator john mccain who is the top republican on the senate armed services committee. senator, good to have you with us. you have been calling for this no-fly zone for some time. i do want to get, first, your tag on the breaking news we heard a little bit from david martin about the plane that went down in libya. a pilot. a weapons systems officer on board. both, we're told, had just minor injuries. this really, though, hits home for so many americans and makes
7:06 am
this a bit more real. how prepared do we need to be that there could be in a situation like this perhaps a different outcome? >> well, erica, i think that it's, from initial reports, it was mechanical failure, not enemy fire. we are, obviously, happy that the news reports are that the pilot and crew were rescued, but we are in a combat and our pilots are trained to fly in combat and let's hope they are no more mechanical failures. i don't think that should detract from the fact that the no-fly zone has been implemented very quickly, much more quickly than many in the pentagon predicted, and it has been very effective. now we need to have a no-drive zone, unfortunately. >> but let's stick with the no-fly zone. "the new york times" says the objective is near. there is some confusion as to what exactly the objective is here. what is your understanding of the end goal?
7:07 am
>> well, my view of what the objective is was to stop what was going to be a near massacre as the gadhafi troops entered the suburbs of benghazi which would have been a horrible bloodbath if gadhafi had been able to take benghazi. that was the immediate objective. the overall objective is to stop him from continuing to murder his own population. this is a man with american blood on his hands who has committed acts of terror in the past and our policy, the united states' policy is articulated by the president of the united states states that he should go and he should not stay in power. >> fountain goal is to get him out does that mean the u.s. could arm the rebels to help make that happen? >> oh, i think that is very possible. in fact, i hope so, that if not
7:08 am
the u.s., through other countries. there's already reports that the egyptians have been supplying them with some weapons. not only giving them the we weapons, but it requires some training. hopefully, gadhafi's army and military will come over to the cited of the rebels. for a long period of time the momentum was clearly on the side of the anti-gadhafi forces and then they were pushed back with the effective use of air power, amongst, looking better weaponry and air training and now i believe we can get the momentum reversed back in the other direction but it's going to be tough because some cities like misrata they are already inside of. >> when you talk about your hope to actually arm the rebels, how confident are we that these folks that, a, we know who they are, and, b, not connected to some terrorist organization like al qaeda and not ultimately turn on the united states and the u.s. allies? >> what we know of them so far, obviously, are that the former
7:09 am
justice minister and others and a government has been formed and part of that government, but gadhafi is a proven quantity. he has the blood of americans on his hands. because he was responsible for the bombing of pan am 103, he has been involved in other acts of terror. by the way, it does take time, as it did during the period of the russian occupation of afghanistan, but we were able to provide them with some weapons and wherewithal to cause the russians to leave afghanistan. so we can do it, but, right now, i think the message we need to send to the libyan army under gadhafi is don't leave your barracks. don't leave your barracks and you will be fine. but if you go out and continue to kill your own countrymen you're going to face the consequences and i think it could have a sal tory effect. >> senator john mccain, thanks. to the latest on the
7:10 am
disaster in japan. workers have returned to a crippled nuclear plant in fukushima and new radiation worries this morning. bill whitaker is in tokyo with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, chris. workers at the plant were able to return to do smoking reactors forced them to evacuate yesterday. they returned today to another problem. twelve days after catastrophic twin disaster struck japan, the struggle to prevent a nuclear meltdown at the leaking daiichi plant in fukushima continues. one day after smoke was seen rising from reactors two and three, evacuated workers have returned to face a troubling new problem. water in one reactor pool is dangerously hot, say officials, near the boiling point. the fear? if water boils away, exposed fuel rods will throw even more radiation off into the atmosphere. this, as plant workers scramble to get cooling systems restored. they have hooked electric cables to all six units. the problem?
7:11 am
it could take days, even weeks, before those systems are back up and running. now the tokyo electric company says contamination has been detected in sea water near the plant for the first time. although, so far, the levels are said to be extremely low. on monday, the u.s. sent its aircraft carrier "george washington" out to sea from a port south of tokyo over worries shifting winds could push increasing levels of radioactivity south toward the capital and nearby u.s. naval bases. if contaminated even with low levels, officials fear the vessel, one of the navy's most valuable at $4.5 billion, could be plagued for radiation for the rest of its service life. nearly 180,000 residents have fled the 12-mile evacuation zone surrounding the nuclear plant as concerns over contaminated food and water supplies remain. are you worried about the food being contaminated? >> of course, of course. just don't know what to do. >> reporter: we had another big
7:12 am
aftershock this morning. the world bank says it could take 235 billion dollars for japan to rebuild. chris? >> cbs' bill whitaker in tokyo, thank you. joining us from washington is nuclear expert james acton. good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> up until now, the japanese have been basically throwing sea water on this reactors basically in the dark. but now that power has been restored, is it now going to become a little bit more obvious as to the full extent of the damage at this reactor? >> chris, the crucial moment is going to be when they find out whether or not the cooling pumps that are necessary to keep that core of the reactor cold are working. while they have been connecting the power, we have been asking ourselves exactly that question. because this is what is needed to really start getting this crisis under control is cooling and we're going to have to see whether or not the pumps are working. >> with all of the talk of restoring cooling power you look at reactor three, it looks,
7:13 am
pardon the term, but it looks like it has been hit by a cruise missile. how do you contain that reactor? >> what we are seeing from the incredibly damaged picture of the damaged buildings is the outside of the building and all of the crucial functions and the crucial containment structures are all within. so it's actually very, very hard to judge the state of the building's internals by looking at its outside. but take it this way. if the level of damage on the inside approaches of level of damage on the outside, then this crisis could still have a few days to run yet. >> when do we get to the point where they have to do something what they did at chernobyl and entomb them in cement. seems to be more steam or leak exposed to the air. >> i think we are still a length away from just abandoning the reactors and entombing them yet. over the last three or four days
7:14 am
now, we have heard some better news coming out of these reactors. while we are still not out of the woods yet, the situation right now is considerably better than it was three or four days ago. now, that could change. the fact that there was steam coming out of two and smoke coming out of three and the reasons especially for the smoke coming out of three haven't been understood demonstrates this remains a serious crisis. i think it's receded from the worse of where it was and simply abandoning the reactors is looking correspondingly less likely. >> i guess we keep thinking we're hearing good news or that we're turning the corner out there but the "uss george washington" a 4.5 billion warship and 225 miles south of fukushima yesterday the u.s. military moved that ship further away to fear any type of radiation contamination there. is this in abundance of caution or are we we not getting the information we should be getting from the japanese government? >> well, i expect a lot of back
7:15 am
weight pushing against the constant worst case analysis. this week, i think it's appropriate to push back against the optimistic best case thinking. i think the moving of the u.s. warship is a reflection of the fact that this situation remains serious. and that there is the potential for further degradation. hopefully, there won't be. but i think it will be wrong to assume that from here on in, we're just on a constant slope up to a successful outcome. >> james acton, thank you, again, for talking with us this morning. >> thank you. time to get you a check of the weather. about 15 minutes past the hour. marysol castro is here with our first check. it's a little cooler this normal on our studio and like it is on the west coast. >> if you enjoy spring skiing, get after it. high pressure for the souther

"newsweek" putting a lot of folks to the test to the citizenship test. >> how dumb are we? >> not everybody pass i said. >> according to a new survey, that pretty simple test a lot of americans would actually fail it so we will get to that coming up. also, important news for consumers. at&t wants to buy t-mobile and what that means for your cell phone service and your bill. we have some of those answers coming up right here. >> you're watching "the early show" on cbs. you have a child with adhd.

usa in a $39 billion deal that would make it the biggest cell phone company in the country. but is this good or bad news for consumers? rebecca jarvis is here with us with the details. good morning. >> good morning. >> so what's the probability a deal this size will go through? >> at&t thinks it will get done in the next 12 months, but the analysts say it will take a lot more. there will likely be many strings attached. and that's because when you consolidate these two, all of a sudden you shrink the size of the overall industry. at&t right now is the largest carrier. they have 95.5 million subscribers. once you add on that 37.7 million subscribers that t-mobile has, you have this mega player in the industry and that means less competition for consumers and consumers can get snubbed as far as pricing goes, as far as service goes and as far as offerings and innovation go.
7:41 am
that usually tends to be the case when you have only a few players. >> if you're a t-mobile subscriber, will your service change? >> that's the question everyone wants to know. at&t generally rates the lowest for service as well as customer service. so for t-mobile people, once will this deal does happen, the whole company is at&t. they absorb t-mobile. so there is a sense that perhaps some of that t-mobile service that people are used to being slightly exemplary to at&t will go away. >> what if you're an at&t subscriber already and you're adding 0 mi ining 40 million ot >> it could suffer potentially. but the case at&t is making is that in rural areas in particular, service will increase. they are building out towers in new york and san francisco, as well.

education into their own hands hoping to avoid big problems down the road. this morning we're going to look at whether that is actually a good idea or not. some parents feel that, you know what, it's a little safer if the kids are drinking in the home rather than going out drink and potentially driving, but what kind of message does that send? >> and 12 to 14 years old. that is young. also ahead, after the royal wedding, there will be a prosession through the streets of london. it will be a sentimental ride for prince william. and he kate middleton will be using the same carriage he and his parents road in after their wedding. in just a few minutes, we will get updates on that and a few more details of the big day. we'll even hear from some of the men behind all those coaches, and there is a great story about the horse that is going to be drawing the carriage. just about. 38 days? is that it? >> first, jeff glor has another check of the headlines for us this morning at the news desk. again, who is counting? >> good morning, guys. >> another day on the calendar

today. >> good morning, guys. once again, in our news here this morning, united states fighter jet has crashed in libya. the pentagon believers mechanical failure, not enemy fire brought it down easy east of benghazi last night. two crew members were aboard, and both were able to eject. both only suffered minor injuries. the crew was separated because they ejected at high altitude, but the military does say this morning that both are now safe in u.s. hands. for more we're joined by cbs news national security correspondent david martin at the pentagon this morning. david, good morning. >> good morning. this f-15-e was flying out of an air base in italy, and it was operating over eastern libya at about an altitude of 24,000 feet. something then went badly wrong with the aircraft and forced both aircrewmen to eject. it has a front seat pilot and a back seat weapons officer. as you said, because of the altitude, they came down in different parts of eastern libya
8:03 am
east of the city of benghazi where they were picked up by rebels and in fairly short order returned to u.s. forces. one thing that is revealed by this incident is that although the u.s. insists there is no communication with the rebel forces, that we are not fighting in lead with them, there obviously is communication with the rebel forces because there was a way to get those two pilots back. that's good news, but it does reveal the fact that we are in league at some level of coordination with the rebel forces. >> that's a good point. david martin at the pentagon. david, thanks. cbs news poll asked americans how they think president obama is handling the libyan crisis. half of those asked approve of what mr. obama has done. 29% asked disapprove, and one in five doesn't have an opinion.

thanks. that's your latest weather. now here's chris. >> marysol, thank you. in this morning's health watch should parents serve alcohol to their teenage kids? teen drinking is a hot topic with spring break end whering, under aged drinkers end up in the e.r. every year, and that leads some parents to begin alcohol education right at home. we have this report. >> reporter: when laura talks about her teenage son, she sounds like any worried parent. >> i don't know what goes on at school. i have no idea. i only know what he tells me. >> mom. >> reporter: her behavior is far from typical. when it comes to letting 15-year-old matt try alcohol.
8:08 am
>> i'll have a glass of wine, and if he looks at me and he wants to try it, i'll say, okay. >> reporter: laura and parents like her are trying to teach their kids how to drink responsibly by allowing them to occasionally consume alcohol at home. >> i don't want to be so strict that they're running in the opposite direction and being as rebellious as they can. >> reporter: underaged drinking is widespread and parental guidance is not always included. by age 21, 86% of kids will have used alcohol. some started alarmingly young ages, nearly 6% of 12 to 14-year-olds admitting to drinking alcohol in the past month. that's roughly 700,000 middle schoolers. >> we know what happens when kids get into trouble when they drink alcohol regularly. they can have car accidents. they can get into risky sexual situations. they can get into physical fights. >> laura says she's not encouraging her son to drink. she's just trying to remove alcohol's allure. >> i'm certainly nodç pouring hm a glass of wine and saying,
8:09 am
salute. i really do believe that you should expose your kids to things that are going to be something they're going to experiment with. >> reporter: in matt's case, laura's technique may have worked. >> the fact that i have experience with alcohol or wine that i have drunk it before, i have sort of experienced the little mini feeling and a little bit of buzz, sort of, and, yeah, i think it does help. >> reporter: we visited a high school pta meeting in new york to see what other parents thought about letting their teenagers drink at home. >> i don't think it's right. >> i think they're going to have to wait until they're of age. >> i specifically -- wanted to try some wine. >> what did you say? >> absolutely not. >> one mom was more flexible. >> i just do it because i think it's good for them to be exposed to it so that that curiosity of what it is hopefully is a little bit deflected. >> this approach is frowned upon by many community leaders who would prefer parents take a tougher approach to underaged drinking. >> yes, we all know that kids
8:10 am
are doing this because that's what kids do, but it's our job as adults not to make it easy for them. what we need are more parents willing tosh parents to their children and not their children's friends. >> the dangers of underaged drinking are not lost on laura. she hopes that an open dialogue with her son may help remove some of the risks. >> i feel like if we talk about something, maybe he'll have a little more knowledge, a little more insight, maybe instead of doing ten shots, he'll do one. >> joining us with more of the pros and cons of drinking with teens is psychologist and early show contributor dr. jennifer hartstein. we saw the report there a second ago. we don't want to make it easy on kids to get alcohol, but i think we all know that they're probably going to get their hands on it in some way, shape, or form. >> we look at the 12 to 14-year-old statistic. they are getting their hands on it. >> do you think it's a smart move that parents can legally serve alcohol to minors. do you think it's a good idea for parents to gently get them -- >> there are pros and cons.
8:11 am
there is the element of demystifying what alcohol is if you are serve it in your home. at the same time, you have to be willing to model the appropriate behavior and so are you giving them mixed messages to your kids if you are doing that. >> what are some of the risks of underaged drinking that you have seen? >> well, basic risks. it can create problems with cognitive functioning, planning. it can increase their pulseivity. it can create problems for accidents, sexual promiscuous out and really regret and a lot of depression and anxiety. as kids we have to be mindful of that. >> i mean, it is. it's just very tough to admit -- so if you don't want your kids to drink, how do you enforce that? >> you really want to be an 240r9 taifsh parent. you want to have an open dialogue. you want to have that give and take. you want to have the back and forth and talk to them about, well, you're going to be in these situations. how are you going to handle it, what are you going to do? if you tried it in my house, we can talk about it some more. i'm going to be involved in that. that's really important for kids to be able to come to their
8:12 am
parents and talk to them about these things. >> besides the talking, though, are there any other things that can be done? >> yes. you want to model appropriate behavior. if your kids see you coming home every night and having a drink so that you get rid of the stressful day, you're almost teaching them that when you feel stressed, you can drink and what they have shown is kids that start before 15 and drink for stress are going to have a problem with alcohol potentially later. >> what do parents really need to keep in mind with underaged drinking, with it being so prevalent across the country? >> they really want to make sure that their kids know that safety is first and if your kids are going to drink and we know a lot of them are going to, unfortunately, you want to make sure that they know that even if they're drunk, you rather they be drunk and alive at home than drunk and dead because they get behind the wheel. >> that's the other thing with some of these parents that condone drinking if their home, thinking it's safe for kids, god forbid one of the kids does decide to go to the corner store with their own car keys. that's on the parents. >> parties are unsupervised means that they have greater risk for drinking problems later. >> thank you.

they're also sex deprived. heidi banks is here with some advic advice. >> it's so understandable. the demands of parenting these days, helping with homework, door pocar pooling, shopping. s's a wonder anybody is having sex. >> let's put this number in perspective. average couple per week, how many times are they having sex? >> this is the scary hinge. under 30 or in the honeymoon phase of the relationship, two to three times. over 30, 59 times a year. so that's a little bit more than once a week. when you get to be about 60 or 70, once a month. so anywhere in there. but you can't compare yourself. you can't get in to a numbers game. it's about connecting in a
8:35 am
relationship. so if you're going, oh, honey, it's only 54 times and it's already new year's eve, no, you can't do that. you've got to really allow your relationship to be what it's supposed to. >> a lot of it has to be based on both personal preference, where the relationship stands. >> exactly. >> the phrase we keep hearing is i'm just too tired for it right now. are you hearing that a lot more? your studies? >> oh, yes. and research says there are three things that affect whether or not you're having sex. health and hormones obviously as you get older, your sex drive decreases with most people. how tired you are is number two out of that whole list. and even more important than that how happy the relationship is. >> are those the major factors? >> absolutely. if you're not happy or exhausted, you're not having a great sex. not healthy, not having a great
8:36 am
sex life. with y but you can't use it as an excuse. >> is it one of those things where if you really want to do it, you can find time? >> we all know that. it really does boil down to that. but you've got to make it a priority. make connecting a priority and you've got to make the enjoyment of it a priority. so maybe skip the trip to the mall. a lot of us debt distractget di the little things in life. >> let's talk about fatigue, though. how does it affect once ee's li? >> there is nothing that stresses you out more than not having enough sleep. if you don't have enough sleep, your libido is low. but on the other side of it is, if you push yourself to have sex, it does energize your libido. so it's one of those two sided coins. >> is it this i'm too tired to do it, is it the modern day i've got a headache? >> yeah, when i hear that you have to look beneath it.
8:37 am
it's always the issue be mooet it, like what's really going on here. have you connected, have you taken the time as a couple. are there other stresses coming in to the relationship. because you just can't use that excuse. >> so what tips would you provide people who are in this kind of funk right now? >> by the way, it is married people with children. so get up a half hour earlier. get up before the kids. >> break the pattern. >> we always think of sex in the evening and we're exhausted. wake up a little early and start your day that way. again, reprioritize your relationship, make connecting a priority. and number three, the most important thing, make you a priority and get more sleep. we always make the kids the priority. a good marriage makes the couple the priority. >> when you say connecting, making that a priority, you're just talking about getting to know each other once again. having that one-on-one connection.
