the door. she says he got it locked. i looked how he had it only enough to grab the mail. >> ramsey kicked open the door and said berry escaped with a small child. when police arrived at the house they discovered to their surprise two other missing girls. gina dejesus and michelle knight. >> for the families prayers have been answered. the nightmare is over. these three young ladies have provided us with the ultimate definition of survival and perser veerance. berry disappeared in 2003. dejesus went missing on her way
7:05 am

7:06 am
house late into the night collecting evidence. police said it would remain an active crime scene for days. the three men have been identified as the homeowner and his brothers o'neil and pedro. in addition a 6-year-old girl was rescued last night and police just told us she is the daughter of amanda berry. >> with us now from washington is john walsh, former host of "america's most wanted" his show profiled the case many times over the years. good morning. >> good morning. >> this story is just incredible. what are the odds that three women after all these years would be able to get free? >> i haven't been able to sleep all night. to get all three of them back alive the odds are so slim. they are in relatively good shape. it looks like amanda may have
7:07 am
had a child from one of her capt ors. i talked to the mothers amanda berry's mother died of a heart attack and many say she died of a broken heart. this is a wonderful ending to get the three women back alive. >> how do the kidnappers maintain control? what is the mental submission that takes place on the part of those kidnapped? >> i was wondering last night, for example, how this guy could keep these women in that house without them getting away. it looks as though that his brothers helped them do that to beat the women down tie them up and threaten them and terify them. if you can listen to the 911 call of amanda berry here. she was terrified. she was worried that any minute
7:08 am
he would come back. i have to say one thing about charles ramsey to help her. he said i was a black man. it was a white woman. i thought it might be a domestic argument. maybe i would be in the wrong place but he had the guts to get on the porch and break open the door and save the lives. it is just an incredible story. i hope the three guys that kept those women there, they are alleged to have done that i hope they pay. i hope they pay big. >> on the 911 call we heard amanda berry identify a man who was apparently a former school bus driver. what does that tell you? it certainly sends chills up many people this morning. >> it tells me that he had plenty of time to scope it out and he knew the dejesus family. everybody has this misconception
7:09 am
that the child molester is the terrible guy under the bridge. they look like anybody else. i have been involved in many cases where kids and girls, these creeps function in society, they are in the house next door. they control these women and exploit these women and do whatever they do to them. there doesn't seem to be anything out of the norm. amanda berry saw her tiny window yesterday and she screamed for help and she was lucky. charles ramsey said i have to get involved up that porch and got her out alive. >> thanks john. we will be drawn by father of elizabeth smart. his daughter was kidnapped at the age of 14 and held for nine months. overseas syria topped the agenda in moscow this morning.
7:10 am
secretary of state john kerry arrived for talks with vladimir putin. the meeting comes on the heels of two israeli air strikes in syria. and those trying to escape the civil war. >> reporter: good morning. jordan is one of several countries bordering syria that is struggling to cope with the endless flood of refugees. the u.n. estimates there will be 1.2 million syrian living here by the end of the year. more than 80,000 people have been killed. in the face of relentless bum bardness from the regime some 3 million syrians have been forced from their homes. more than half a million have fled to jordan.
7:11 am
63,000 refugees arrived in the small country. many come here. now the second largest camp in the world with 175,000 residents and counting it is also now the fifth largest city in jordan. some officials are concerned that the heavy influx of refugees could stabilize the country but security forces here are preparing for the chaos that will almost certainly ensue if the assad regime falls. now, the u.s. is one of jordan's closest allies. there are currently approximately 200 u.s. military personnel here in jordan. they are training soldiers on how to go into syria and try to secure the chemical weapon sites should the assad regime fall. >> thank you. and the senate committee holds a confirmation hearing today for
7:12 am
deborah jones. >> we are learning new details about that attack from his former deputy in libya. >> reporter: the confirmation hearing for the new ambassador are getting underway. we are getting the interview conducted by congressional investigators with the deputy to ambassador chris stevens. repeated requests for military help was turned down. congressional investigators said as the benghazi attack unfolded he repeatedly called officials to request to scramble a fighter or two. the answer was it is too far away. >> he was basically shut down. >> hicks and and two other state
7:13 am
department officials will testify before the submity tomorrow. >> hicks said there was a special unit in tripoli that was ready to go to benghazi but they were told to stand down. why? >> this is one of the most disturbing part of gregory hicks' testimony, they were the best trained, best equipped and most likely to be able to save lives and they were taken off the plane. >> reporter: hicks said i believe if we were able to scramble a fighter over benghazi as quickly as possible the live ynlive -- libyans would have split. >> i don't have access to the interviews that i think have been referred to. >> reporter: on monday states men deflected questions about hicks. >> we haven't seen the transfers. >> reporter: democratic congressman of virginia says the
7:14 am
state department's own investigation was sufficient. >> this was the ninth set of hearings that republicans have had trying to make something stick. >> reporter: so this hearing tomorrow is clearly going to be contentious. hicks no longerer works in libya. he is based at the state department here in washington and he will be the star witness. last night democratic senator helped reach a bipartisan deal on background checks. the measure failed but he is not giving up. what is possible in your judgment to get past it? >> i believe the background check bill is possible. >> not the one that failed last time. >> we are going to have to make adjustments to it and find out where the comfort zone is. what we need to be is educate the law abiding governors like myself. people don't believe this is a threat to their second amendment. this bill not only protects your
7:15 am
second amendment. >> i want to know what is different because it will make it more powerful to those people. >> we have some people that were concerned it might infringe on family transfers. we are going to clarify the language. it would be basically not subjected to the background check because that is a personal transaction with a family member. we have private and you have basically commercial. if you are going to go to a commercial like to a gun show gun store or online it should have a background check. >> there was a huge nra convention over the weekend in houston where the new president of the nra said this expanded push for background checks is an all-out revenge on gun owners. there was a lot of rhetoric about your bill at this convention. >> it is not true. >> and you have an a rating from
7:16 am
the nra, right? not anymore. >> really this bill does things they tried to do for 20 years and treats the law abiding gun owners like myself and a lot of my friends in the nra as they should be treated. >> are you frustrated with the nra? >> they are rattling the cage saying if they do this. the difference is this is constitutional. this is legislative action for changes, not like the epa or regulatory agencies. people are concerned they did this and this and this and this. that is not going to happen. this makes common sense. >> i have to ask you about the other story on the front pages of the paper today. the air force chief of sexual assault prevention has been
7:17 am
accused of groping a woman. he has been dismissed. how does this happen? is there a huge problem with sexual assault in the military? >> we are finding out that more and more of this is happening. it is not tolerated in any segment of our society. >> they need to change the process. >> they have to change the process because we are finding too many instances. i talked to our female senators who are on top of this. it is very very concerning. i can tell you we are all in concert with this as far as changing this dynamics of what is going on in the military. >> thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> it's time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. the "new york times" says the obama administration is directly accusing the chinese government for launching cyber attacks. by some estimates more than 90% of high tech spying on the

7:19 am
governor chris christie has under gone lap ban surgery. the he tells the post the surgery has nothing to do with a possible run for president. >> i see you smiling after that. >> i think he did it for himself but politics may have had something to do with it. we will talk more low pressure still spinning up some clouds in our direction. there is a chance we could see some pop-up showers throughout the day today but most of that will be over the mountaintops. from our mount vaca cam, we have clouds and starting to break up a little bit. still a lot of moisture wrapping around this system, so we are going to leave a chance of a few lingering showers in the forecast for today.

>> your realtime captioner: linda marie macdonald good morning, everyone. it's 7:26. i'm frank mallicoat. get you caught up with some bay area headlines now. on this tuesday, san jose police arrested a man and two women one of them pregnant in connection with a series of armed robberies this morning. the suspects were caught this morning after a car chase that ended with a crash. two women are still in the hospital from the limousine fire that killed five of their friends over the weekend. it's likely to take weeks now to find the cause of the fire on saturday night on the san mateo bridge. and a pleasant hill -- and the pleasant hill city council decided this morning not to save a domed theater from the wrecking ball. they will build a sporting goods store where the building is on 680 in pleasant hill. traffic and weather coming
7:27 am
right up after the break. stay right there.
7:28 am
good morning. we definitely have longer drive times than normal from livermore on westbound 580 and on southbound 680 from pleasanton down towards the sunol grade. and it's all because of an early-morning fatal accident on southbound 680 approaching andrade road. checking the bay bridge right now conditions are pretty typical for this time of the morning. looks like it's backed up to the foot of the maze. 15, maybe up to 20 minutes to get you on the bay bridge. metering lights are on. that's traffic. here's lawrence. >> still a lot of clouds in our skies right now. a little broken in spots. let's get you out there live right now and, well, a nice start to the day in toward the pleasanton area. dry so far. our hi-def doppler radar showing you things staying dry now but that may change a little bit later. 50s and some 60s right now. toward the afternoon, 60s and 70s for a high. then it looks like a return to drier weather and warmer temperatures on thursday and friday.
7:29 am
7:30 am
new jersey governor chris christie had a funny moment on friday. they're all funny but this one was good a group of children visited his office and someone spotted a spider on his desk and this happened. he now has a problem with peanuts. the animal rights group not the mediterranean bred. he has a very good relationship with them. they put out in a statement suggesting that the governor be more compassionate to even the smallest animals. listen, if you eight legs and can't outrun chris christie you deserve that. >> you know he suffered a lot of jokes about his weight and now the governor is doing something about that. we'll talk about that coming up. >> the governor says that in the grand scheme of things i was
7:31 am
looking at my wife and my kids. welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour former governor mark sanford is locked in a dead heat with his democratic challenger. this is election day. national republicans abandoned him but are voters ready to put him back in office? >> the woman who is staring down kim jong-un. park geun-hye gives her first interview to margaret brennan. a bizarre twist in sexual assault in the military. the head allegedly groped a woman. >> chuck hagel is said to be outraged. >> reporter: the arrest of 41-year-old lieutenant colonel jeff krusinski has people
7:32 am
reeling. >> the mug shot shows signs of a struggle. police say a drunking ingen krusinski approached a woman in a parking lot and grabbed her breast and buttocks. the woman managed to get away and contact police. now a man who is supposed to prevent sexual assault is charged with one count of sexual battery. a former air force academy baseball player, krusinski has been the chief of the sexual assault and response branch of the airport since february. the unit is responsible for overseeing policy and educating service men and women on a growing problem. >> sexual assault is a crime. >> reporter: new figures scheduled to be released today by the pentagon show a continuing rise in sexual assaults in the military. reports of sexual assault are up 6% from 3,192 in 2011 to 3,374
7:33 am
in 2012. the pentagon's estimate of the real number of what is notoriously an underreported crime goes much higher. 26,000 service men and women experienced unwanted sexual contact compared to 19,300 two years before. made worse, says california congresswoman jackie spear, by the fact that commanding officers have broad powers to prevent prosecution within their units and often do. >> the result is that we have about a third of the women who serve in the military now that sometime in their career will be sexually assaulted or raped. >> reporter: 122 lawmakers are pushing legislation that would allow sexual assault cases to be investigated and prosecuted outside the chain of command. meanwhile, krusinski has been removed from his job as head of sexual assault prevention for the air force until the investigation is completed. charlie, norah? >> david, thank you.
7:34 am
governor chris christie is in the middle of a re-election campaign in new jersey but this morning news of his weight loss surgery is turning the conversation toward a white house. cbs news political director john dickerson is with us from washington. good morning. what's your take on this? >> well, in talking to governor's staff this morning, they say this is about him turning 50 and doctors said this will catch up with you some day. he wants to be around for his kids. but of course this is seen in the presidential context. he went in and had outpatient surgery on presidents day weekend to make sure everything is sufficiently parallel here. you know remember that haley boush barbour said if i lose 50 pounds it's because i'm running for president or i got sick. chris christie in typical fashion is cutting to the chase doing this. cutting to the middle. >> it's not possible this has nothing to do with politics. it's all about health.
7:35 am
>> right. exactly. >> i have a bridge for you. >> of course this has that second element. >> it's amazing that the governor has been able to keep this under wraps for several months now and apparently he's lost 40 pounds. he's facing re-election as governor. he's been the butt of jokes and he's also been pretty adamant about defending his weight, hasn't he? >> he has to be. he's adamant about pretty much everything. it would be funny if he turned into a shrinking flower on this question. he didn't tell staff until yesterday. he told his chief of staff this is happening. so if running for president is one morning job is keeping things secret, he did a good job on that here. >> he didn't go to a doctor's office except for the surgery. the doctor came to him so it would not be discovered. >> they were talking about it before hurricane sandy hit and so this is something that's been in the planning for a while. >> he said he rejected gastric surgery because it was too
7:36 am
risky. >> i didn't hear that. you know one other thing about this is his poll numbers are going to be watched and now everybody is going to watch his weight numbers between now and whenever he decides one way or the other whether to run for president. two numbers to watch. >> dr. john dickerson this morning getting into the pluses and minuses of gastric versus lap band surgery. i don't want to miss out on election day in south carolina. or it could be redemption day for former governor mark sanford. do you think he may win today? >> it's awfully close. the district in which he's running mitt romney won by 18 points. this is a very red district. and so even though mark sanford lost support of the national party in washington he had that confrontation with his wife over the visitation to her house, he's repeated his mistakes in addition to the well known one, he seems to be coming back. that strength of his personality. he's just been fighting it out.
7:37 am
it's also strength of the fact that it's a very, very republican district. they would rather have one vote in support of john boehner than one vote in support of democratic leader nancy pelosi. >> thank you for that. we appreciate it. in northern california officials are still trying to figure out what sparked a deadly fire inside a limousine. a bride and four of her friends were killed. one survivor says the driver got out but didn't try to help the women still trapped inside. but as ben tracy reports, the driver is telling a different story. >> reporter: the driver of the limousine that burst into flames saturday night on the san mateo bridge said the evening turned into tragedy in an instant. freends friends out celebrating tried to warn of the danger over the loud music of the radio. >> she said smoke. i'm driving on the elevated part. i'm trying to concentrate.
7:38 am
>> there's smoke. fire came out. stop the car. stop the car. >> reporter: they were frantically trying to tell him the car was filling with smoke. by the time he pulled over here on the bridge the limo was engulfed in flames. in less than three minutes,ers in died. >> at that point when the door was open it was horrific. it was just flames were high and i felt that nobody could have survived that. the flames were too high. it happened so fast.
7:39 am
>> reporter: the fire comes at a difficult time for brown. he's been working to turn his life around after facing run ins with the law and drug problems. he says today he's working with at-risk youth and intends to donate two week's pay to the fire victims. officials say the investigation into the cause of the fire and who might be to blame will take several weeks. for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, los angeles. >> and she is being called the iron lady of asia. south korea's top new president, park geun-hye, gives

7:44 am
south korea. before that talk, park geun-hye gave her first interview to our margaret brennan. margaret brennan is with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you, charlie, and to norah. the president told us she wanted to do this interview to introduce herself to america. what u.s. officials want to know is just how hard her policy will be toward north korea. she told us she will make them pay if they attack. her own personal story is fascinating and weaves you through this conflict with north korea. >> park geun-hye is known as the iron lady of asia. a reputation she earned during her rise to power in a male dominated country. her father was killed by one of his own intelligence agents after running the country for nearly 20 years. her mother died at the hands of a north korean spy.

7:47 am
would not be here today. >> reporter: her inauguration was greeted with much fanfare including an appearance by the country's biggest pop star. but now south korea and the world want to know whether park can deliver on her pledge to engage the north koreans and bring an end to all right. still a lot of clouds around the bay area, some glistening waters out over the bay, too, as we have seen the clouds broken a bit. there is a slight chance we could see a few more scattered

charlie? norah? gayle? >> dean reynolds thanks. earlier this morning we talked to ed smart in salt lake city. his daughter elizabeth, was kidnapped in 2002. she was rescued after spending nine months in captivity. >> good morning. >> now, the country -- the whole country knew about elizabeth smart's disappearance and her recovery. outside of the cleveland area most of us had not heard about this story until yesterday. so when you heard the recovery of these three young women, your first thought was what? >> three miracles. i mean what a wonderful ending to a horrible nightmare. i remember the moment i saw elizabeth, and i'm sure the parents of these three women are absolutely thrilled to have their daughters back. it's just really a fantastic day for them. >> what's necessary for these young women today? what do they need?
8:05 am
>> they need love and support and to have their family and everybody else understand that you know what happened to them was not their fault. they didn't choose to have this happen. and that you know they just need that unconditional love and a chance to rebond with their family and you know basically to stay out of the media at this point. >> ed, can you describe the anguish that the families go through and parents, your own daughter who was missing for nine months, the parents of these three women? >> you know i think that you could look at it as a wound that would not heal and to have it go on for nine months -- nine years, ten years, is just -- you know, there's incredible pain not knowing what's happened to them, where they are. are they okay? are they alive? you know i've heard that
8:06 am
they've had these candlelight vigils for years now. you know certainly it felt that their daughters were still out there and held hope which i think is absolutely wonderful. as i've said a chance of talking with many parents, i've heard some of them say that you know they feel their child is alive, or they are deceased and these parents, from what i understand said that they felt their daughter was still out there and held the hope. you know to have this come home, i think that there are other children out there. and it goes to the importance of people being aware of their surroundings. you know if there is something, to report it. >> can you tell us briefly about elizabeth? i know she's married. she's now working as an advocate for other kidnapped victims. how did she get through this? do you ever get to a normal place in life, or do you just have to move on? >> well you know you want to think that you can go back to
8:07 am
the old normal that you used to have, that life can settle back into that groove but that's really not possible. but there is the possibility of a new normal although these ten years have been taken away from these women. they have the rest of their lives to live. you know with support and love you know they'll have you know, still a wonderful life to live. i just hope that the families understand that, you know that really what happened to them was not their fault. they need love and support and that chance to rebond and find those happy points in life. >> ed smart, thank you so much. and secretary of state john kerry is pushing russia to get tougher with syria's government. kerry landed in moscow this morning for talks with vladimir putin. so far russia has blocked american's efforts to force syria's president out of power. u.s. officials say kerry brought evidence to putin showing syria's government has used chemical weapons. the white house says the

president is looking for closer ties to capitol hill. so yesterday the president invited three senators to play a game of golf. one of them was republican senator bob corker of tennessee. senator, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> so what did you learn about the president from his golf game, and what did you learn? >> it was mostly about golf, and candid candidly, it was a lot of fun. saxby's hole in one on 11 was just perfect. it was a great day. it really was. >> what did you shoot, and what did the president shoot? >> you know we had to stop on number 15 because we had votes on the senate floor, unfortunately. we tried to get the president to put them off. in any event, we all played well. the president played well. he was good to be around. and everybody did. i think they've announced publicly -- we don't say much about these things -- but saxby and i took a little money off of him. it was good. >> there you go. >> there was betting involved. senator, i want to ask you about secretary of state kerry who arrives in moscow this morning. you're on the senate foreign
8:09 am
relations committee. do you think that this administration needs to move further in terms of arming the opposition? what's next? >> i do think we'll be arming the opposition shortly. we're doing a lot more on the ground than really is known. but we do have to change the equation. i think y'all know the moderate opposition groups that we support are not as good at fighting. they're they're not as good at delivering humanitarian aid. we need to change the balance and they need to reach out to the aillouite population. we've got to change the balance there, and i do think we'll be arming the rebels soon. >> and can you do that without giving those weapons to rebels? >> a lot of it charlie, at this point is actually -- it's almost symbolic. i mean, we have the extremists, as you know a nightmare would be al nusra gaining control of syria. that's worse than assad being
8:10 am
there. i think we can. we've known for a long time which of the groups are more moderate and more secular. you never have total control, but i think it's time for us to begin changing the balance. and i think that's the right way to do it. >> senator, before you go, when you played golf with the president of the united states do you pull out all the stops to beat him, or do you think he's the president, i'm going to let him win this one? >> you know, i've got to be honest. i played pretty well yesterday, and i tried to make every putt. i really did. look, the president, again, he wants that. it was a great match. he played saxby and myself and it was a lot of fun. and we did talk about some public policy issues. so constructive in every way. we all committed not to give a readout on that but no we played to win. >> senator corker good to see you. thank you. >> thank you. for the first time in 40 years, queen elizabeth will miss the commonwealth heads of government meeting. buckingham palace officials say the 87-year-old queen will not go to sri lanka in november.

good morning. 880 is a freeway to avoid right now. look at this, we got slower traffic on northbound eight- year, 80,000-mile warranty near the oakland coliseum and southbound. they just cleared a stall approaching hegenberger and cleared an accident near high street. so things are improving but check out our maps and our slow sensors. southbound that's the real sticky spot. southbound 880 has that long line of red traffic sensors all the way down towards fremont. we are seeing it closer towards dakota road. big delays there. caltrains delays half hour in both directions because they had to take a train out of service.
