7:03 am
>> good morning. great to be here. >> glad to have you here.- it has been one week since the terrorist bombing at the boston marathon. surviving suspect appears to be responding to questions from investigators. >> authorities think he and his brother were plotting to carry out even more bombings. we begin with terrell brown in boston. he's outside the hospital where the accused is being held. terrell, good morning. >> reporter: anthony and norah, good morning to you. and to our viewers in the west. the last we heard, he's in critical but stable condition. under heavy guard. and he's awake and communicating with he isinvestigators in writing. investigators spent sunday combing the neighborhood where dzhokhar tsarnaev was captured. a helicopter found him lying inside a boat in a watertown backyard friday night. after an hour-long standoff, agents launched stun grenades.
7:04 am
>> we have movement in the boat. he just sat up. >> reporter: tsarnaev suffered a gunshot wound to the throat which some investigators believe may have been self-inflicted. the end of his time on the run began earlier when he and his older brother tamerlan car jacked an suv. inside the owner left a cellphone. >> we were able to ping that phone and figure out it was heading to watertown. >> reporter: tamerlan tsarnaev died after being shot at several times and being run over. george mcmasters told 60 minutes if the teen is one of the bombers, he'd be baffled. >> how could this have happened? how much changed so much from the year to a year and a half i'd been absent go from polite, well spoken, engaging, typical american teenager to what i have to say is a monster. >> reporter: according to
7:05 am
"associated press" federal investigators now want to question his wife katherine tsarnaev. she said she didn't suspect her husband of anything. in fact, on the day he died she said her husband was home when she left for work.ons sed tand explosives found, two brothers were probably planning another attack. >> they had the pressure cooker bomb, five hand grenades. they wanted to kill more people. federal prosecutors have been planning charges against tsarnaev. those could be filed any day now. meanwhile boston is trying to get back to normal. they will reopen boylston street that was closed when the bombs were set off. john miller is following the investigation. he's a former assistant fbi director and joins us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> we know authorities are communicating with the suspect. what are we hearing? >> what we're focused on, and we're going to talk about it later in the show, is public
7:06 am
safety exceptions, what can be out there, what can endanger the public. it's basically where did you make the bombs, are there any more explosives, any more cells, any more people. and while i'm told he's being cooperative, i'm also getting the sense and i want to be careful of too many specifics here, but i'm getting the sense that he's not saying there's a whole second wave of plots or plotters here. still there are places where they made the explosives and other things it sounds like. >> let me ask you to clarify that. are you suggesting that they may not have acted alone? >> no. i'm suggesting that it appears there's no other terrorist plot out there, but this is a slow process in writing and they're going through that now. things could develop or change. >> do we know, john, how they may have learned how to put these bombs together? >> that's very interesting. you know, i was going through a lot of material and speaking to
7:07 am
the people in the investigation. and they said take a look at "inspire" magazine. there's a particular issue with an article that is now notorious in jihadi circles called "how to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom." two specific devices. one with a pipe capped on something with a light with a fuse about the size of your hand. i'm told that matches what he used during the gun battle and that they found so many of. the other at the bottom says the pressure cooker bomb is the most effective device. it's to be put on the ground where the crowd is. that's the one they seem to have followed. >> "inspire" magazine is what, john? >> it's an online magazine by al qaeda and the arabian peninsula.
7:08 am
it's published by a young man who left new york and escaped and h anwar al awl >> let me ask you about this. there has been criticism from several members of congress that the fbi may have dropped the ball, that there have been five people questioned since 9/11 who since went on to carry out attacks. is this a case the fbi may have made a mistake since they interviewed tamerlan, the brother who's now dead? >> that will be picked at with a fine-toothed comb. what the fbi is saying we've got a lead. they don't say from what country, but we're told russia. that he's tied to extremism in russia and we ran all the databases. does he turn up on any electronic intercepts? all of that washed out clean. they went out interviewing his parents and him and came up with no derogatory information. after that the fbi guidelines say you can't spy on them illegally or continue your
7:09 am
investigation forever. they said if you have anything else, send it to us, and they closed it out. >> thanks, john. the bombing suspects are ethnic chechens. now the russian government is interested in a trip that was taken to russia by one of the suspects. charlie d'agata has more. good morning, charlie. >> good morning, anthony. russian investigators are working .united states to try to determine whether there are any direct links with tamerlan tsarnaev and any militant or terrorist groups in the region. a government spokesman we spoke to today said so far that investigation has turned up no ties. we've also been speaking to neighbors over the phone this will dagestan. they said he spent most of his time working on renovating a store front for his father. his father said he never spent any long periods of time away from home. in an interview with russia today his aunt was quoted as
7:10 am
sayiwas curious about religion. in another interview his mom said her son was under constant fbi surveillance. during the six months in dagestan, tamerlan would have been exposed to high levels of fighting between insurgents in the area and russian security group. the terror group, the most feared terror group, said they had nothing to do with tamerlan, certainly had nothing do with the boston bombings. they say their war is not with america. when he returned to the united states he set up a playlist from youtube that featured a militant from dagestan. now there's a question whether there's any direct ties or even influence. anthony? >> thanks, charlie. thousands of mourners turned out last night to honor one of the victims.
7:11 am

7:12 am
airlines and biggest pilots union say it points to troubles ahead. their plan to furlough air traffic controllers, forcing them to tay home one day every other week will bring the system to a grinding halt. >> it will be like having hurricane sandy in the north and hurricane katrina in the south at the same time. >> reporter: so they're suing the faa to postpone the furloughs but the faa says it's the only way to slash $637 million from its budget, cuts required by congress. the busiest airports are expected to take the hardest hits. maximum delays at atlanta's hartsfield-jackson could reach 3 1/2 hours. chicago's o'hare, more than two. and at new york's laguardia, nearly an hour and a half. >> when your airplane doesn't get to you as quickly as it was supposed to, when you're maybe in the air longer than you
7:13 am
should be, yes, the typical american flyer will feel it. >> reporter: critics argue that's exactly what president obama wants, for flyers to feel it, complain to congress, and reverse the budget cuts. >> i believe he's instructing his agencies to do the things that inflict the most pain on the american people so that they're upset. >> the lawsuit filed by the airlines and pilots would delay the furloughs for at least 30 days. a court ruling could come this week. anthony and norah? >> sharyl attkisson. thanks, sharyl. the swollen mississippi river is closed at vicksburg, mississippi, because of a sunken barge. there is widespread flooding farther north. it's especially bad in northern illinois where thousands of people have been forced out of their homes. dean reynolds is in versailles, illinois. >> reporter: good morning, anthony.
7:14 am
heavy spring rains have swollen rivers across the midwest. there's major flooding reporting in six states, three deaths also reported and more rain may be on the way. illinois governor pat quinn braced for the challenge ahead. >> this is a natural disaster. we can't control nature and we've suffered grievously. >> reporter: he declared a state of emergency and on sunday he toured the hardest hit communities. many people here and across the state prepared for the worst. >> you don't want to lose the rest of your life. get your stuff and go. look at those other people. they don't even have a home left. >> reporter: as some pack up their homes, some pack sandbags hoping to avoid damage with the cresting waters. >> we're expected to take in a big mess and a lot of inconvenience for everybody that lives along the river. >> reporter: over the past few days flood waters poured through illinois.

7:34 am
lawmakers concerned. as investigators continue to interrogate their suspect some lawmakers argue he should be treated as an enemy combatant and denied an attorney for the time being. >> we should be allowed her intelligence-gathering purposes. >> investigators say they're still uncertain whether zocor and his brother tamerlan who died in a shoot-out on friday with police have any ties to fore te union issued a statement saying we must not waver from our tried and true justice system even in the most difficult of times. denial of rights is un-american and will only make it harder to obtain fair convictions. some liberal lawmakers agree and said they would be comfortable with tsarnaev being designated as an enemy combatant. >> i don't believe.
7:35 am
it would beunconstitutional to >> it carries its own risk especially if that suspect is an american citizen. it could be challenged in court and that is one reason anthony and norah, that the obama administration hasn't pushed to change his status. >> thank you. with us now cbs analyst jack ford and former fbi assistant john miller. jack, why not read him his miranda rights? >> the idea is this when they talk about a public safety exemption. when you give people those warnings oftentimes they're not going to talk.e they ear not go here law enforcement is saying here it's more important to find out if there's a danger out there, immediate danger so we're willing to roll the dice on maybe not being able to use what he said to make sure we get information to -- >> there is a risk here. >> there is a risk anthony. absolutely. they're saying we think we have the justification to do this.
7:36 am
down the road the court might look at it and say, you know what? you didn't. too many days went by and there wasn't evidence of an immediate to allow you to use what you gleaned from this conversation. >> which is what john suggested, why they want to communicate with him to see if there anything out there. >> if there's a storage area or a bomb famtry and they say we're two guys but there are two guys launching a bomb next week that's more important to get on top of than to figure out how will we use this in the case. the idea is if he cooperates premiranda, he's likely to cooperate post miranda. this has been used in two big cases here. the underwear bomber remember on christmas day over in detroit, they did an extensive interview with him about it without miranda and there was a roiling debate and he pled guilty. the same with the truck bomber who also pled guilty. so at some point there will be this test in the terrorist case.
7:37 am
>> is there a time limit on this, jack? >> it's case sensitive. within six hours there's no longer the immediate urgency. here they could say, as john says, look there's all sorts of evidence and he hasn't been able to communicate in the last couple of days. if i'm the prosecutor we're going to argue i'mthis is elastic. >> now we have a number of republicans saying let's declare him an enemy combatant. why do that? >> i think there's an emotional element to it that people feel that's a better protection for us. i don't know if legally that's, in fact, so. i know there are situations where someone clearly falls within the enemy combatant. the prosecutor is saying we can do this. leave this in the justice system. we can handle it. an american citizen on american soil. >> there's also a political debate versus a practical
7:38 am
debate, and if you just take the politics out of it and say you can try him in guantanamo in a military tribunal or here since 9/11 the federal courts have tried 500 terrorism cases a dozen very significant ones with an 89% conviction rate. guantanamo was one of them. >> they're more efficient -- federal courts have been more successful successful? >> efficient and more successful. >> the fact that they didn't read him his miranda, that's something decide all the way at the top of the government. >> all the way up. >> more than the attorney general. >> yes. >> the president of the united states. >> this is a decision done at the highest level, and the people doing the questioning are not just you know the
7:39 am
intelligence and the hague. this is what they do. a group of expert skiers took every precaution in colorado. it wasn't enough. we'll show you how they got caught in the state's worst avalanche in more than 50 years. and tomorrow joel osteen and his wife victoria they'll be here in studio 57. that's tomorrow on "cbs this morning." before copd... i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd including chronic bronand emphysema. it should
7:40 am
not be taken more than twice a day. symbicort may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, and sif you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. with copd, i thought i'd miss our family tradition. now symbicort significantly improves my lung function starting within 5 minutes. and that makes a difference in my breathing. today, we're ready for whatever swims our way. ask your doctor about symbicort. i got my first prescription free. call or click to learn more.

tarell brown is at the hospital in boston. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. what we're learning is a tale of two brothers. there's dzhokhar who looked like he had adjusted to life roll relatively well. he looked up to older brother, tamerlan, who seemed to feel a little less at ease. on the surface, the tsarnaev brothers looked like an immigrant success story. 26-year-old tamerlan studied engineering, was married with a 2-year-old daughter and a golden gloves heavyweight champion. >> his plans were to be a very successful businessman. year-old dzhokhar, a star wrestler in high school, was a at umass-dartmouth. he became a u.s. citizen last year on september 11th. his college friends told "60 minutes" scott pelley he was interested in cars and soccer and they never saw him at a mosque or prayers. >> if someone a few days ago told me that one of my friends was responsible for the bombs, bombing in boston, i would have
8:02 am

8:04 am
have to bury our dead take care of our wounded. and i think we also have to take care of our first responders. i think the most important police officer in boston in the coming week is a sergeant named brian fleming. he's a good man. he runs the stress unit. and he's going to be a very busy guy. boston is such a small big city. so i don't know if you saw last week, i did a column that i went to the firehouse that's closest to the bombing scene around the corner. and a number of the guys on engine seven, when they went to that scene, they weighed into that carnage, and they knew people. everybody on that truck knew the richards family. the driver on the truck, his daughter baby-sat little martin. the lieutenant on the truck, his son was in school with henry. >> you talk about the police officer who went to comfort martin and turns out that she knew him, too.
8:05 am
>> there was a firefighter who went and actually knelt over martin, his daughter was in the third grade with martin. that's how small this town is. and so i think that the trauma that was on the first responders, it would have been natural, but i think it's compounded by the fact that the guys on engine 7, the guys on tower ladder 17, knew these people. >> yeah. >> kevin, i was in dorchester speaking with two twins who played soccer with martin. this is a community that is heartbroken and still grieving for its victims. your column in many ways is the beating heart of boston. you do. and you talk with the firefighters. and i know you spent -- and cops. i know you spent time with cops this weekend. how are they doing? >> obviously, job well done. i was with some of the guys that were there when they took them out. there was sort of the satisfaction, but it was tempered by the fact that they knew that a fellow collier, what a wonderful kid he was. he's dead.
8:06 am
dick donahue, another cop, fighting for his life at the time. there was no celebration believe me. it was more like i'm glad it's over. and i think that's where the town is right now. i'm glad it's over. now what are we going to do? and i think the next week is very important for people to acknowledge that what we went through as a town is a traumatic event. and if you need help, please get help. and that help is out there. in fact, some guys from new york arrived today in boston. and it was likve got your back because boston guys went down to new york on 9/11. >> you also talk about your concern about a backlash which i think is very important to say. you said these two don't speak for muslims any more than i speak for overeighty irish-american guys who like to play hockey. >> thank you very much, gayle. >> you wrote it, i didn't. >> no i'm serious. i'm very serious. i think everybody's concerned because, you know we can't help in our business but identify because obviously we're looking for motive. and it appears that the older brother in this cases case had a very
8:07 am
extreme, perverted form of islam. and obviously, most -- the vast majority of muslims would never embrace anything like that. i think that's important. to me it would dishonor and disrespect the victims that anybody would reach out and hurt or belittle a muslim because of this. that's wrong. and it shouldn't happen. and i hope it doesn't happen. >> yeah, you were quoted as saying, listen in boston we believe three things politics sports and revenge. >> when i say revenge, there's no violence intent.ill our children. his affect us. we're going to be different, but we're going to be better. >> kevin, thank you for being here. i know

8:19 am
you know the required drives to do detection work. >> how do you -- how do you do that though? >> i mean it's -- it would take longer -- it would be easier to show you than explain it honestly. first and foremost i want to see how the dog interacts with me. he needs to be neutral. noverly affectionate but not faulty aggression. he has to be able to work in different environments and have the drive. >> they look like german shepherds but they're not, correct? >> correct. this is a belgian. they're very similar. dutch shepherd german shepherd and this one. >> i remember the raids carried out on osama bin laden's compound that we learned about a mall inroy. his name was cairo, is that correct? >> that's correct.
