7:02 am
>> in boston someone paid $560,000 for two parking spots in the heart of the city. >> all that. >> oh, baby. throws it down. >> miami came alive. >> series tied 2-2, miami wins game four. >> and look out. on the fly, did he catch it? >> gives it a look. >> move this right along. you have to get back to the kitchen. >> got to get back. >> and all that matters. >> steven spielberg and george lucas are sounding the alarm for the movie business. >> there's going to be an implosion or big meltdown. >> going to the movies is going to cost you $50, maybe $100 maybe $150. >> kate middleton made her final public appearance before she goes on maternity leave. the public had questions for her like maternity leave from what? captioning funded by cbs captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. good morning, gayle. >> good morning, charlie. the game may change in syria.
7:03 am
>> it may indeed. for the first time the obama administration says syria's government is using chemical weapons against rebel troopsp. those weapons include sarin nerve gas. >> the u.s. is promising help for the rebels trying to overthrow syria's president. major garret is at the white house for the late pestp good morning to you. >> good morning, gayle and charlie and our viewers out west. the white house says syria has crossed sir eded the red line. syria called the accusation full of lies. more american gear will flow to those rebels and the white house still looks to diplomacy even as the united states moves ever closer to engaging itself in this conflict. nearly two months after saying syria might have used chemical weapons against rebel forces the white house now says as sure. sirts yan regime used the nerve agent sarin multiple times in the past year to kill between 100 and 150 rebels trying to
7:04 am
overthrow dictator bashar al assad. >> that's a red line for us and there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front. >> reporter: mr. obama has long resisted arming syrian rebels but has now decided to send more military equipment than ever before. but there's no clue what the u.s. will send or when. one part of the syrian opposition will receive the help, the syrian military council or smc. one top adviser described the move this way. >> it's aimed at strengthening both the cohesion of the opposition, but also the effectiveness of the smc on the ground. >> we can go in. >> reporter: republican senator john mccain welcomed the white house change. but he continues to press for rapid arming of the rebels and creation of a no-fly zone to protect them. >> we don't want boots on the ground. we know it would be counter productive. it would not lead to victory but we do know we can provide incredible assistance and change
7:05 am
this battlefield equation. >> reporter: there is no decision on a no-fly zone though president obamas's military advisors are recommending it. mr. obama will seek more help for the syrian rebels at the g-8 summit next week in northern ireland. his top negotiator will be vladimir putin whose government this morning said the evidence supporting the chemical weapons allegation does not look convincing. >> thanks, major. so what will be the impact of this new military support from the united states? clarissa ward has reportedly extensively inside syria. good morning charlie and gayle. rebels we've spoken to are overjoyed at the prospect of the u.s. getting more involved and the timing of this announcement is uncanny. the rebels were recently dealt a major blow with their defeat in the strategic town of kasir. struggling to keep up morale in the face of ammunition and weapons shortage and fearful of
7:06 am
a government offenseive to take part rebel held parts of aleppo. does this mean the reblts will get the heavy anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons they say they need to bring down the dictatorship of bashar al assad. of course arming the rebels would be a complex undertaking because they are disorganized and fragmented and there are real fears the weapons could get into the hands of extremists who have joined the uprising. many civilians would like to see a no-fly zone but that's also far from simple to implement as the russians appear to be poised to supply the syrian army with a more sophisticated air defense system. carly and gayle. >> we thank you. in colorado the most destructive wildfire in state history is blamed for two deaths. the black forest fire has destroyed at least 360 homes just outside colorado springs. it's one of three wildfires burning in the state. barry petersen is in colorado springs and joins us with the latest on that story. berry, good morning to you. >> good morning, charlie and
7:07 am
gayle and to our viewers in the west. well, about 5% containment this morning and forecasts for thunderstorms later in the day. it would help if some of that rain fell out here. it would give firefighters a break. they're dealing with hot, dry, shifting winds that have made the fire unpredictable and so far unstoppable. >> reporter: all the airal tankers, all the efforts on the ground begin to make progress and then the wind shifts the battle line moves, the fire roars off in another direction and more houses are incinerated. extra help is pouring in including firefighters from the nearby air force academy and the news of two deaths is what el paso county sheriff called the worst scenario. people who lost their race with the fire while trying to escape. >> it appears as though the individuals were in the garage. the car doors were open as though they were loading or grabbing last-minute things and all indications are from the evidence on scene, that they
7:08 am
were planning to depart very quickly. >> reporter: in these past days the word has gone out over and over. >> get out. go. >> reporter: yesterday new evacuations were ordered as the fire spread in new directions. police going house to house. >> yes. can i show it to you? >> absolutely. >> reporter: when mary had to leave, she grabbed family photo albums and she accepts that her house may be gone. >> if the house goes and everything around it that's okay because safety and our lives are more important. >> you guys got out alive. >> yes. yes. >> reporter: and then there was peter mcvoy playing high school baseball with what a backdrop. >> hard to focus on the game. we were playing with the huge plume of smoke. >> reporter: then his family had to evacuate and peter grabbed what was dearest his 25 baseball trophies. did you get them all? >> yes, i did. and my first home run ball. and the only home run ball. >> reporter: and here's a twist. a guy got his kids and his wife
7:09 am
pregnant with twins out of the area the house burned down. he called the utilities to cancel and direct tv said he owes them $400 for the burned out satellite dish and receivers. direct tv had no comment but the local paper says they did the same thing last year with the fires in the area telling people to collect on their house insurance and pay direct tv. the guy says had he needs the $400 to buy clothes for his kids and diapers for those twins. charlie and gayle. >> thank you very much. an investigation is under way after a crowded outdoor deck collapsed at a sports bar near miami beach. dozensens of people were tossed into biscayne bay last night. two separate serious injuries. natalie zi ya of wfor said the deck was full of people watching the miami heat. >> reporter: it was minutes before the nba finals when the deck of shucker's bar gave way. seconds later patrons, chairs and tables were sent plunging into the water. >> we walk in take a few steps
7:10 am
in. my mom is looking around and you hear crunch crunch curiosity and bam, pillar comes down, pillar. people screaming, yelling. >> reporter: by the time authorities arrived on scene they identified 100 people involved in the collapse. rescuers pulled people from the shallow waters lowering ladders into the bay to help those stuck. emergency response team sent divers to look for missing people. helicopters circled the area searching for others. >> we arrived on the scene, our divers suited up they did go into the water. we were able to retrieve a total of 24 victims. >> reporter: most of the victims involved in the collapse escaped with cuts and bruises, however two remain in critical condition. thankfully everyone has been accounted for. for "cbs this morning," natalia zea, miami. >> two deaths blamed on the severe weather from the upper midwest to new england. the powerful storm is finally weakening as it moves off the east coast. on thursday heavy rains and
7:11 am
damaging winds knocked down trees around washington, d.c. >> three tornadoes were reported in maryland and in richmond, virginia, a 4-year-old boy was killed by a falling tree. when damage is reported from ohio to north carolina a pennsylvania man died in a fire sparked by lightning. the storm system knocked out power to nearly 600,000 customers in the mid-atlantic region. flood watches are still in effect for parts of the northeast. now to the debate over secret government surveillance. critics have complained about privacy ever since those programs were revealed last week. now top intelligence officials say they're preparing to release new details to the public. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. well now that these programs are out in the open lawmakers are pushing intelligence officials to declassify more details, like how the programs work and which terrorist plots were stopped because of them. that information, they say, would help to put the public at
7:12 am
ease. the director of the nsa held classified closed door briefings for the house and senate yesterday, sharing secret details about how the agency monitors phone records and the internet. >> this is not a program where we're -- where we are out free wheeling it. it is a well overseen and a very focused program. >> reporter: most members said they left convinced that the public's privacy was being protected. >> i hope at some point the order of magnitude of what they've done to keep americans safe will become public. >> reporter: the nsa director said he would work to declassify some details by next week. democrat dianne feinstein who shares the senate intelligence committee says the public may learn then how many terrorist plots have been prevented by these programs. >> they're more than you think and we should have that shortly. he said monday. >> reporter: but there are detractors including kentucky republican rand paul who said he would be joining the aclu in suing the nsa. >> americans are rightly
7:13 am
concerned about having all of their phone records collected and monitored all of the time. >> reporter: lawmakers from both sides say they'll pursue legislation to prevent or limit private contractors like the leaker in this case from handling highly classified data. the chair of the house intelligence committee even suggested 29-year-old edward snowden may have secretly been working for a foreign government. >> i hope that we don't decide that our national security interests are going to be determined by a high school dropout who had a whole series of both academic troubles and employment troubles. >> reporter: fbi director robert mueller testified on capitol hill that every time terrorists find out about a program like this they start to figure out ways around it. and that these leaks, charlie and gayle, have made the united states more vulnerable. >> thanks nancy. the british government is telling airlines not to allow snoweden to fly to the united
7:14 am
kingdom because he will not be allowed into the country. american officials are working to bring snowden to the united states to face charges. senior correspondent john miller is a former assistant fbi director. john, good morning. >> good morning. >> how close are they to filing charges? >> they've been in a struggle and you have to ask yourself i don't know how long does it take to file a charge? you know it's not rocket science. but in this case it's complicated on a number of levels. first of all it has to be a charge that fits with u.s. law but also fits in the statutes in hong kong. second of all, here's the rub, the heavyweight charges, espionage, treason, things that would come with life or even a death penalty, are probably going to be too much for the authorities in hong kong to say we'll turn him over. they've been looking at the lower end charges and that's government property, misuse of a government computer and the counts there two years, five years, it's too little for the u.s. they've been trying to find a set of charges that might come with a 10 or 20-year term that will be acceptable to both
7:15 am
governments and that will be consistent with the extradition treaty and law. that's what's taking so long. >> once they get to that point what's next after they officially charge him? what happens? >> things start to move very slowly. >> i thought you were going to say quickly. yeah. >> that's what people think. not really. what will happen then is authorities in hong kong will get a provisional arrest warrant. then, you know, the u.s. authorities will come and make their case in court as to why snowden should be extradited and that process could take weeks or months. if snowden fights it and he says he will, that month can turn into many months or years. >> is there a judgment he has important national security material that he may be able to show someone else? >> yes. and here's another big problem, charlie. yesterday, he was in the south china sea paper saying i have material to show you about how we've been spying on hong kong and when you're negotiating with hong kong to turn him over quickly that's the kind of thing that will complicate the relations and make them say we
7:16 am
might want to look at that stuff before we decide. >> thank you, john. the supreme court has decided that human genes cannot be patented. yesterday's ruling was a defeat for the company that controls a genetic breast cancer test used by angelina jolie. >> she had a double mastectomy after the test revealed she was likely to get cancer. in a statement she says i hope this ruling will lead to more women at risk for breast cancer being able to get access to gene testing and take control of their lives. cbs news contributor dr. david agus is with us he leads the west side cancer center at usc. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and gayle. >> help us understand what the court said and what its impact is? >> so clearance thomas led the decision of the court and it was about this one gene brca the risk for breast cancer that angelina jolie had a faulty copy of. the implications are much more dramatic. what it said is you can't patent any human gene. so it opens up all of the genes
7:17 am
for you, i and everybody in this country and other countries to be used in our everyday medicine. this is a landmark ruling in medicine. >> i remember david, last time you were here you were saying it was unfair this company had the patent to the gene. >> ethically and morally all of us knew it was the right thing to do. sometimes the courts are behind what we feel ethically, they don't have the right to do it. but the court made the decision here that equals the morality and the ethics which is it opens up dna. >> the argument by the companies as you know and this has to do over a wide scope of areas, is that if they cannot make money they cannot do research and cannot discover drugs. >> listen innovation is important. entrepreneurism is important. our government, the nih paid for the research that identified this gene. the government is still funding research at universities across the country so we will make
7:18 am
discoveries. we need innovation and that's going to be how we apply it. it's going to still happen. >> thank you. >> thank you. time to show you some of the headlines from around the globe. "the washington post" looks at the elaborate preparation of president obama's trip to africa. hundreds of secret service agents are involved. a navy ship with a medical trauma unit will be stationed offshore. 14 limos will be flown along with sheets of bulletproof glass to cover the windows at the president's hotels. the newtown connecticut bee reports on the sandy hook elementary school shooting. the town holding a moment of silence and a vigil. local officials first responders and newtown residents all plan to attend. new orleans times pick cube says the cause of a chemical plant explosion is a mystery. one worker killed in yesterday's blast near baton rouge. 77 people were treated at hospitals. 300 workers were evacuated. britain's guardian says iran is voting for a new president this morning. six candidates are in the race.

7:35 am
disappeared, that all the business they were doing was now suddenly over in that location there are definitely eight people who would not be dead. >> i want to go back to carter's piece for a second because i thought it was a great piece with a guy who was the next door neighbor. does it surprise you whitey bulger would still want to stay in contact with this guy since the guy helped in some way the fbi catch him. >> doesn't surprise me a bit? >> why. >> whitey bulger has this code of honor. you have bad guys and they get in the way the bad guys we don't want around. but this neighbor was a good guy. this neighbor didn't do anything that any other neighbor wouldn't have done. poor guy was then surrounded by fbi agents after they got the tip and said, you know we need to gets this guy, whitey bulger who he knew by a different name charlie gasco, be we need to get him downstairs so there's no violence here. whitey doesn't hold a grudge against him. and whitey likes good people to

>> two legendary filmmakers predicted big changes in the movie business. george lucas said a povy ticket will some day cost as much as a broadway show. and steven spielberg says the current age of the blockbuster will end badly. >> there's going to eventually be an implosion or meltdown. there's going to be an implosion where three or four or maybe a half dozen of these mega budgeted movies will go crashing into the ground and that's going to change the paradigm again. >> michael hogan, entertainment editor for "the huffington post" joins us. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of this. >> i think you have steven spielberg and george lucas responding to charges happening in hollywood. part of that is related to digital transformation. you're seeing a lot of the stories that would have been told in cinema moving to cable tv even to netflix and you're seeing hollywood focus on smaller number of really, really high-budgeted movies that are
7:45 am
geared at gigantic audiences here and around the world and they're investing humongous amounts in them. what is happening is that we're getting a kind of flood of blockbusters. we've got possibly 19 blockbusters this summer and i think they're kind of looking at this going where does it end? this can't keep going this way because there can be only so many blockbusters. >> listen superman opens today. the reports are it costs over $200 million to get that thing into theaters. are we seeing too many. is 19 too many for the summer? is an audience for 19 blockbusters? >> that's the question. you know the sort of hollywood math is the more blockbusters we make the more people will come but i think it's possible they will be carving up that audience into smaller pieses and when you start to see them they're becoming kind of formula. these are heavily tested. you don't spend $200 million on a movie and not test it and make sure it's going to work but as a result of that you're getting a formula and you know how many times can you watch a flawed but likable hero save the earth from
