7:34 am
list, which is one of the most important tools in the fbi. it was literally invented -- there's a lot of stories, but the real story is it was literally invented by j. edgar hoover over a card game when one of them said who's the toughest guys out there. they made a list. it was such a big hit in the newspapers, they kept it going because they caught two or three of these guys. now, this is a milestone because they've added the 499th and 500th. and when you have a program that dates that far back to taught anthropology. and he traveled around the world to the philippines, to thailand supposedly for research.
7:35 am
fbi believes that all of these trips were disguised to pick up children and continue his activities of being an alleged sexual predator. and he wanted for a string of those crimes. so he is one of those. the other one is jose manuel garcia guevara who is wanted for a rape and murder that was submitted in front of a child. so these are both very serious crimes. but how do you get on the 10 most wanted list? what's the criteria who do they pick and why? my office used to work on it and we would pore over the candidates and you have three basic criteria. the crime serious. were they dangerous? that's one. number two, would publicity aid in their capture? meaning does everybody in the public already know about this person? when people asked why was osama bin laden on the list? that's because he went on the list in 1998 when a lot of people didn't know who he was or
7:36 am
what he looked like. and then the last case would publicity make it different? what you see on the success rate of the program the answer is definitely yes. i predict they'll get both of these guys. >> whitey bulger was or was not on the list? >> whitey bulger was on the list. here's the funny thing. whitey bulger knows the power of that list once osama bin laden was killed and that hit the news whitey bulger woke up the next day and said i'm in trouble because i move up a notch and very shortly thereafter he was in custody. >> let me talk to you about the inspiration for robert de niro's character in "goodfellas." they were digging in queens yesterday, why? >> there's the old story about the gangster who calls his son and says i'm very sad because i'm too old and too much pain to plant the garden and plant the tomatoes this year. his son hangs up and said pop,

8:03 am
trade pack. talks will begin next month in washington. white house officials feared that would not occur. president obama will leave the summit for berlin and deliver a speech at the brandenburg gate tomorrow day's shy of john f. kennedy's speech with west berliners living in the shadow of the berlin wall. president obama talked about serious civil war? our pbs interview. he rejected criticism that he should have decided earlier to send arms to syria's rebels. >> these folks are carpenters and black smiths and dentists. these aren't professional fighters. the notion there was some professional military inside of syria for us to immediately support a year ago or two years ago -- >> there were some former syrian jerrells that were part of the free syrian army. >> there were those that were a
8:04 am
part but i don't think anybody would suggest that somehow there was a ready-made military opposition inside syria that could somehow have quickly and cleanly defeated the syrian army or assad or overthrown it. and, one of the challenges we have is that some of the most effective fighters within the opposition had been those who frankly are not friendly toward the united states of america and arming them willie-nillie is not a good recipe for meeting american interests over the long term. the last point i would make on this is a lot of critics have suggested that if we go in hot and heavy, no fly zone setting up humanitarian corridors and so forth. >> heavy artillery. >> that offers a simpler solution. 90% of the deaths that have
8:05 am
taken place haven't been because of air strikes by the syrian air force. syrian air force isn't particularly good. they can't aim very well. it has been happening on the ground. >> so you think a no-fly zone is not necessary? >> what i'm saying is that if you haven't been in the situation room pouring through intelligence and meeting directly with our military folks and asking what are all our options and examining what are all the consequences and understanding that for example, if you set up a no-fly zone that you may not be actually solving the problem on the ground or if you set up a humanitarian corridor, are you, in fact committed not only to stopping aircrafts from going over the corridor but also missiles. have we mapped all of the chemical weapons facilities to make sure we don't drop a bomb on a chemical weapons facility that ends up dispersing chemical
8:06 am
weapons and killing civilians, which is what we are trying to in invent. unless you have been involved in those conversations, it is kind of hard for you to understand the complexity of the situation and how we have to not rush into one more war in the middle east. >> that's why people think you are hesitant. you do not want to get involved in another conflict. >> charlie, that shouldn't just be my concern. that should be everybody's concern. we went through that. we know what it is like to rush into a war in the middle east without having thought it through. it is very easy to slip-slide your way into deeper and deeper commitments. if it is not working immediately, then what ends up happening is six months from now, people say, well, you gave the heavy artillery, now, what we really need is "x" and now what we really need is "y." because until assad is defeated in this view it is never going
8:07 am
to be enough. now, on the other side there are folks who say we are so scarred from iraq we should have learned our lesson. we should not have anything to do with it. i reject that view as well. the fact of the matter is we have serious interests there. not only humanitarian interests, we can't have a situation of ongoing chaos in a major country that borders a country like jordan which, in turn borders israel. we have a legitimate need to be engaged and to be involved. >> he certainly laid out his position very well. when you said charlie, when he said to you, unless you have been in the conversations, it is kind of hard to get involved with knowing the information that he has. you certainly challenged him. you certainly challenged him with what he had to say. what were you going to say, norah. sorry. ninety percent of the deaths have taken place have not taken
8:08 am
place because of the air strikes. he has calculated this. the way he was thinking out laud in your interview. if we drop bombs we may hit the chemical weapons facilities and have civilian casualties. it is extraordinary to hear his thinking out loud. >> you reminded me of that this morning. remember when bill clinton was called even by the president, the great explainer. i think he feels some sense that he has not done a good job at explaining his own mint. this with some toefrt try to get at that, as you suggest. >> there is another part in the interview where you ask him about why did it take you so long? a year ago, you could have decided to help arm the rebels? >> yes. >> and then a year from now after we have armed them people would say, why aren't you doing more? he said you end up slip-sliding into further engagement in the middle east. i think that's the first time we have ever heard the president in long form really explain his thinking on syria.
8:09 am
>> there is also some sense in that he understands if you get drawn back into that it also interrupts whatever your domestic agenda is and the belief that you have to fix america too, both economically and otherwise in terms of an investment future. >> it was good to hear a long-form conversation where he lays out what he is thinking. >> i agree. the marriage rate in america is down to a historic low. more than 175,000 weddings have been put off since the recession began. now that the economy is improving, there could be more marriages in the next two years. a virginia company says that is because couples feel more secure about their financial future the world's most definitive dictionary oxford english dictionary says tweet is a word. they define it as to make a posting on the social networking service twitter. also, to use twitter regularly or habit actually. one of 1200 new words.

that there's a part of them that still thinks of themselves as this poor country that's got all these problems. the united states is you know the big cheese out there. trying to dictate things perhaps trying to contain our lives. so i think what you're seeing inside of chinese leadership is the desire to maybe continue not to be responsible. not to be a full-stakeholder. work the international system on something like trade, for intellectual property rights. get as much as they can. >> right. >> and be free riders and let the united states worry about the big hassles and the big problems. at the same time with the national part, saying we're big, too, and we should be seen as equals on the world stage. what we're saying is you can't pick and choose. you can't have all the rights of a major world power but none of the responsibilities. and if you accept both then i
8:34 am
will you will have a strong partner in the united states. so i'm optimistic about the future. but you know what i've found working with the chinese government is candor being clear about american values. pushing back when americans are trying to take advantage of us >> speaking of pushing back what happened when you push back on the question of hacking and the serious allegations that come from this country that believe that the chinese are making serious strides in hacking, not only private sector, but public sector? >> we had a very blunt conversation about cybersecurity. >> do they acknowledge it? >> you know when you're having a conversation like this i don't think you ever expect a chinese leader to say, you know what you're right. >> caught red-handed. >> we're stealing all your stuff, and every day, we try to figure out how we can get into apple. >> and cyber. >> right.
8:35 am
every country in the world, large and small, engages in intelligence-gathering. and that is an occasional source of tension. but it's generally practiced within bounds. there is a big difference between china wanting to figure out how can they find out what my talking points are when i'm meeting with the japanese which is standard fare. and we try to prevent them from penetrating that. and they try to get that information. it's a big difference between that and a hacker directly connected with the chinese government or the chinese military, breaking into apple's software systems to see if they can obtain the designs for the latest apple product. that's theft. and we can't tolerate that. >> tell me turn to a number of
8:36 am

8:37 am
measures that are unprecedented. and we will continue to do so. you know we ended enhanced interrogation techniques. we ended some of the detention policies that had been placed that violated our values. there are a whole range of checks and balances that we put in place. but i think it's fair to say that, you know there are going to be folks on the left. and you know what amuses me now folks on the right who were finding with a republican president and now obama's coming in with black helicopters. >> i did the interview. so it's interesting for me to see the president's mind at work. >> i thought the point he made about the chinese government. or the chinese military going in directly to try to steal apple's designs, that that is theft. of course what the u.s. government has accused the chinese of doing, not just apple, but our own military
8:38 am
systems. and stealing our designs for military hardware. >> we talked about that by the interview, which i said to him, it is said that they're doing that because they want to bring their military up to parity. he agocknowledged that was true with the military to bring it up to parity. >> you said it's to assess the president. but how does it happen charlie. last friday we're sitting here saying, what are you doing this weekend? i might go home and mow the lawn. at no point did you say i'm going to the white house? when did that happen? how did it come together? >> after this program, i was talking to a colleague in my office there was a call from the white house saying where are you this weekend? i said where do you want me to be. >> yeah. >> and they said well the president would like to have a conversation about a range of issues. and you're the guy he'd like to have it with.
