7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." we begin with important news. new details of a cbs news investigation. the state department's inspector general is calling for an independent review of an alleged illegal and inappropriate behavior of officials. >> on monday, our john miller revealed an internal memo. may have covered up or even stopped investigations of diplomats and agents. this morning, congress is getting involved. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. >> reporter: that's right, congressional leaders from both sides are calling these allegations appalling. the state department insists there was no cover-up but it is hiring outside investigators to look into the matter. the state department would not address the specific instances where agency watchdogs complained that high-ranking state department officials had interfered in investigations. >> i'm not going to comment on
7:04 am
individual cases. today or yesterday. >> reporter: eight cases of alleged misconduct or criminal activity are outlined in an october 2012 memo first uncovered by cbs news. one case involves the u.s. ambassador to belgium suspected of soliciting pros tootitutes i public park. another with allegations that secretary of state's security detail engaged prostitutes on foreign trips and the practice was endemic. the memo indicated when agents from the diplomatic security service tried to investigate, they were told to back off. south carolina republican lindsey graham, a harsh critic of the clinton state department, is calling for congress to investigate. and on tuesday, both the senate and house committees that oversee the state department announced they will. >> if somebody in the state department is shielding that information and manipulating that information, that is completely unacceptable because
7:05 am
you can't fix a problem unless you identify it. >> reporter: the memo identified undersecretary of state patrick kennedy as the official who shut down the investigation into ambassador gutman. >> john miller from cbs news. >> reporter: cbs' john miller spoke with the former top state department security official in brussels. he requested the investigation into the activities. and said investigators were ordered to stand down. >> who told you to stop? >> well, i got the information through my ds channel. but it came from somebody higher than ds i'm sure. >> reporter: in a statement tuesday, kennedy said, i never once interfered, nor would i condone interfering in any investigation. ambassador gutman called the allegations he solicited prostitutes baseless. to watch the four years i have proudly served in belgium smeared is devastating, he wrote. i live in a beautiful park that you walk through to get to many
7:06 am
locations. and at no paioint have i engage in any improper activity. the state department insists all eight cases are under review. lawmakers insists a big problem here is no one has been appointed to head the inspector general's office. that is the independent watchdog within the state department. for 4 1/2 years now. >> the obama administration's massive program to collect phone records now faces a lawsuit. the american civil liberties union is asking a judge to stop the program and throw out all the information collected from millions of americans. mean while, the search goes on for the man who says he revealed the program's existence. new detaiils of edward snowden' past. >> reporter: edward snowden has been out of sight since monday when he checked out of a hong kong hotel. law enforcement sources tell us there's no evidence that snowden has left hong kong and they
7:07 am
suggest investigators have a pretty good idea where he might be. while edward snowden's whereabouts remain unclear, we're continuing to learn more about the former national security agency contractor. this woman, lindsay mills, is said to be the girlfriend he left behind when he decided to expose secret u.s. intelligence data collection programs. mill's father tells cbs the two have been dating for more than four years. >> he's always had strong convictions of right and wrong. >> reporter: just after snowden outed himself as the lindsay posted this online. quote, i'm reflect on all the faces that have graced my past. the ones i never got to bid adieu. but sometime also life doesn't afford proper good-byes. since snowden went public, some have called him a hero. others a traitor. in washington, members of both parties say snowden must face
7:08 am
justice. >> if you break the law, you must be held accountable. there are reasons we have certain laws. there are reasons why things are classified. >> what's difficult to understand is the motivation of someone who would intentionally or seek to warn our nation's enemies of the lawful programs created to protect the american people. and i hope that he is prosecuted to the full extent of the law. >> reporter: while snowden's fate is uncertain, so too is the future of the once secret surveillance programs he unmasked. the question of whether the government should be tracking our phone calls and internet use has divided the public. in a new cbs poll, 46% of people surveyed said the government has struck the right balance between fighting terrorism and protecting civil liberties. 36% said the nsa has overreached. and about 13% said the government has not gone far enough. the head of the nsa will be on capitol hill in washington this
7:09 am
morning at 11:00 pacific time to answer questions about all of this. meanwhile, the fbi is still searching through snowden's communications in an effort to corroborate his claims that he, in fact, is the person who leaked some of the government's most sensitive secrets. nora, charlie. >> bob orr, thank you. in our next half hour, john miller reports on the search for edward snowden. investigators say it's a challenge to get a man who knows the secret world of the cia and the nsa. >> in colorado, dozens of homes are destroyed. hundreds more threatened this morning. there are at least four major wildfires in that state. one near colorado springs has forced thousands out their homes. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this fire continues to rage out of control this morning. behind me, you can see the dense smoke. and we're beginning to see helicopters dropping water on this fire. it has already destroyed at least 60 homes and fire officials believe that number
7:10 am
will grow. 8,000 acres have already been consumed. and at this hour it is zero% contained. the black forest fire started yesterday afternoon and evacuees who were rushed from their home in just a few hours they lost everything. house after house after house. the black forest fire just northeast of colorado springs seemed to jump tall trees and concentrate its destruction on structures, turning this expensive estate into a mere skeleton in less than a half an hour. >> it's extremely hot out. it's windy. that just fans the fire. from 50 feet away with my window closed, i could feel the intensity through my glass. that gives you an idea how hot it is. >> reporter: over 2,000 homes affecting more than 6,000 people were evacuated. many had no time to save anything but themselves. >> i'm not sure if my house is locked. injust don't know. >> reporter: the fire spread
7:11 am
rapidly as officials struggled to find workers to beat back the blaze. >> with a high wind like this, it is very difficult to get the resources into the air and it's very difficult for them to be effective. >> the challenge we're facing right now is a lack of manpower when it comes to the state and even some national resources. >> the black forest fire is one of four wildfires burning in colorado this morning. here, outside colorado springs, aircraft were slow to arrive and ground crews have limited access to water. >> there are hydrants. they're very sporadic. that's why we're bringing in a lot of water tanks. >> reporter: there's another fire burning just south of here. the royal gorge fire. it forced the evacuation a state prison with upwards of 1600 inmates. the weather, it will play a key role in the firefight today. crews are facing a triple threat. record breaking heat, low humidity and gusting winds are pushing this fire out of control. there is also record breaking
7:12 am
temps throughout this week, with temperatures reaching into the triple digits. charlie and nora. >> kelly, thank you. clashes have been going on all night in istanbul, turkey, between riot police and demonstrators. the government searches for a way to try and end those protests. holly williams is at the scene in istanbul. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. at nearly two weeks, turk irk authorities have lost their patience. and are now trying to forcibly remove demonstrators here from taksim square in the heart of istanbul. we've seen the police fire rubber bullets and they're using water cannons mounted on trucks to drive the protesters back. one man in a wheelchair was hit directly. overnight, this square was turned into a battleground, shrouded in tear gas. most of those demonstrators here are peaceful. we saw some throwing rocks and moltive cocktails. several vehicles were set on
7:13 am
fire, sending smoke billowing over central istanbul. these protests began in istanbul but have spread to cities all over turkey. last night, there were also clashes in ankara, the capital. they're angry with the prime minister, erdogan. his opponents say he's become dictatorial. the prime minister has dismissed those demonstrating as looters and extremists. called the protests a systemic plan to damage turkey's image and its economy. >> thank you. nelson mandela is spending his fifth day in intensive care. in preyor ya, south africa, monitoring his condition. >> reporter: good morning. south african president jacob zuma has said in a speech to parliament that nelson mandela is responding better to treatment. he says he is happy with the progress mandela is making. after what he referred to as a
7:14 am
did i c difficult few days. south africans have been urged by zuma to continue praying for both mandela and his medical team. and they have been doing just that. singing and holding a candle vigil outside this hospital last night. previously a cbs news source told us there was a far more worrying picture of mandela's condition. he said prior to hospitalization, mandela had to be resuscitated. that he had a procedure to repair a bleeding ulcer. and his kidney and liver were impaired, functioning at only 50% of their capacity. charlie, nora. >> deborah, thank you. opening statements begin this morning in the whitey bulger murder trial. the reputed mob boss was a fugitive for 17 years. elaine quijano is at the white house where jury selection wrapped up. >> reporter: eight men and four women will make up the jury in the trial of james whitey
7:15 am
bulger. their names will not be made public till after they reach a verdict. a sign of the intense interest surrounding this case. one day before opening statements, a shouting match erupted in the courtroom between the federal prosecutor and whitey bulger's lawyer over an allegation that state police squashed an investigation into a key witness. convicted hit man. at one point, u.s. district judge casper intervened, saying, counsel, counsel, okay, seriously, seriously. >> if this is what it's like every day, you know, the prosecution and the defense going after each other like this, it's going to be a great trial. >> reporter: 12 jurors and 6 alter nates will have a front row seat. they are generally middle aged and the jurors include a stay at home dad and a woman whose house was burglarized five years ago. "boston globe" columnist kevin kallum has covered this for 30
7:16 am
years. >> we never heard his excuses for what happened, and that's important. we've never really had a proper hearing of the corruption side of the fbi. >> reporter: prosecutors say bulger carried out a long list of crimes including 19 murders, while working as an fbi informant. his former associate john red shea who spent 12 years in prison for cocaine trafficking says the pain bulger inflicted is felt here even today. why is whitey bulger still relevant? >> he had a ring in this town for many, many years. the destruction that he's caused. has affected many, many people. >> reporter: whitey bulger is 83 years old. his girlfriend is serving eight years in prison for harboring bulger during his years on the run. his trial is expected to last at least three months. charlie, nora. >> elaine, thank you. here to discuss the bulger trial, cbs news analyst rikki
7:17 am
klieman. good morning. >> good bhomorning. jury selection was lightning fast and it shows you the federal court knows how to move a case. we wind up with eight men, four women. out of 875. we don't know their identities. probably smart. we do know they're mostly middle aged. white. two african-americans and one ashane. asian. >> this is going to be a dramatic trial. >> to the point where the judge has to keep saying, seriously, seriously. the story, you have two entrenched camps. you either loved whitey bulger if you lived in boston or you feared him. you've got a prosecution saying this is a stone-cold killer. he's been accused of 19 homicides in the midst of over 30 charges involving racketeering. he was head of the mob. the irish mob. that pushed out the italian mob.
7:18 am
and what we want to see from the government is to say this man must be bought to justice after 18 years on the run. >> so what will the defense try to do? >> the defense is going to say nonsense, that is only whitey bulger here on trial, the government should be on trial, the fbi was corrupt. the fbi caused bulger's reign of terror because they permitted it, they allowed it and they are the people that whitey bulger wants to expose. >> thank you, rikki, good to see you. "the wall street journal" says a sweeping immigration reform bill has cleared a big hurdle. yield, the senate approved a motion to start debate on the measure. the bill aims to start a path to citizenship. >> chairman carl levin has his own plan to address sexual assault in the military. it replaces a p proposal by

senator gillibrand. it opposes her plan to take sexual assault cases out of the chain of command. >> it appeared online the text on the second page was garbled. the following 20 pages were blank. >> the "los angeles times" says facebook ceo mark zuckerberg heard from angry investors at yesterday's shareholder meeting. >> and "the times" looked at a $20 billion plan to protect new york city from rising sea levels. mayor bloombergs wants to build levees all right. way, looking good outside right now. we're looking good outside right now, mostly clear skies and it's going to stay that way the better part of the day as it looks like high pressure is trying to build back into the bay area. we're going to see some warmer temperatures as we head in toward the week.

but looks like sunshine over the city right now. temperatures in the 50s. this afternoon, temperatures up into the 70s, some low 80s inland, 60s and inside the bay. 50s and 60s at the coast. >> announcer: this national weather report sponsored by sa safelite autoglass. secret agents search for secret agent edward snowden. they're tracking him and the classified information he has.
7:21 am
