7:01 am
accused of feeding secrets to wikileaks could spend 136 years behind bars. >> manning convicted of 20 of the government's 22 charges. >> on the most serious charge of aiding the enemy, the government could not get a guilty verdict. >> this was never a fair trial. the only victim was the u.s. government's wounded pride. >> there are newspaper editors and other politicians that say, boy, i wish that guy weiner would quit. >> in a new video, anthony weiner once again vowing to stay in the race. >> do you see what's going on today? if you become mayor of the city of new york, you got to put up with this every single day. >> prepackaged salad mix could be the source of a stomach bug. the worst of the outbreak is over. >> daily news reporting this morning that major league baseball will suspend a-rod and eight other players by the end of the week. >> the players union will not attempt to try in any way, shape or form defend people who hethey know are guilty. >> the city of san diego wants

7:03 am
morning." as you are waking up in the west, a sentencing hearing for bradley manning is under way. it began moments ago. a judge convicted manning of releasing government documents to wikileaks. >> the army private first class was acquitted of the most serious crime. bob orr's in washington. >> reporter: good morning. bradley manning will likely spend years in prison. military prosecutors hope his conviction on 20 unit coulds will be a strong deterrent. but there are serious holes in security. and the nation's secrets are vulnerable. bradley manning stood as the military judge read her verdict. the army private briefly smiled when he heard not guilty on the most serious charge of aiding the enemy. but manning was convicted of 20 other counts including espionage, theft of information and computer fraud. all in connection with the largest intelligence leak in u.s. military history. >> this wasn't your garden variety guy acting badly.
7:04 am
>> reporter: joe brennan, a former top counter intelligence official at the nsa, says manning's breach was in many ways predictable. after 9/11 intelligence agencies including the cia and fbi, began sharing more classified information in an effort to stop the next attack. but brenner says too many people were given access to too much information. >> it was as if we were conducting foreign relations in mr. roger's neighborhood. everybody should be nice and share everything. >> reporter: manning was able to access and release hundreds of thousands of files, including this 2007 video, showing a u.s. apache helicopter in baghdad mistakenly opening fire on civilians. while leaks are rare the security of the information largely depends on the integrity of those handling it. top secret clear ens ans are held by more than 1.4 million people. and a third of them are government contractors. like former nsa contractor edward snowden. snowden's recent leaks about nsa
7:05 am
data collection programs now have officials tightening protocols. they're now implementing a two-person rule. so the systems administrators like snowden will no longer work alone. and quietly be able to download secrets. >> there will be more leaks. we can do a better job of reducing them. but transparency has come to the intelligence business. >> reporter: the sentencing phase of manning's trial could take weeks as the judge assesses the damage caused by manning's leaks. while he's been spared the possible sentence of life without parole he still faces up to 136 years in prison. >> bob, what impact might this have on decision making by edward snowden as he sits in russia? >> you know he has to be watching this, charlie. the manning verdict probably ends any chance if there was one, snowden would come back to the u.s. voluntarily because the government has put down a clear marker here on how it intends to go forward. so snowden's continuing to seek
7:06 am
temporary asylum in russia with the ultimate goal of finding a safe haven somewhere in south america. the u.s. government continues to pressure russia to return snowden. sources tell us that could happen if the two countries find a way to make some kind of deal. anthony weiner's going on offense in his fight to stay in the race for mayor of new york city. he's releasing a new campaign video. in it, he talks about the sexting scandal that is not going away. elaine quijano is with us. >> reporter: since the scandal first broke a week ago, weiner has been keeping a full campaign schedule in an effort to move forward. everyone has been wondering if or when he'll drop out of the race. well, last night, he repeated his answer. >> quit isn't the way we roll in new york city. >> reporter: in his latest campaign ad, anthony weiner made it clear he's not going anywhere. >> i know that there are newspaper editors and other politicians that say, boy, wish that guy weiner would quit. they don't know new york.
7:07 am
they don't know me. >> reporter: the one minute clip came nearly a week after he stood before reporters with his wife huma by his side and admitted to yet another sexting scandal. since then the former congressman has seen his campaign manager step down and his one-time lead in the polls disappear. at every campaign stop a crush of cameras follows him. >> someone wants to come out with something embarrassing about you in your private life you have to talk about that for a little while. >> reporter: will the video be enough to convince voters? the first question from the audience was about the scandal. >> i violated trust in my wife. i did that. that was wrong. people have every right in the world to say that disqualifies me. but i'm not going to quit based on that. >> reporter: in the face of another skeptical crowd, the feisty candidate refused to give ground and appeared to win some respect. >> you see what's going on here today? if you become mayor of the city of new york you got to put up
7:08 am
with this every single day. people saying to you, you know what, you did something we don't like, cameras in your face back down, quit. that's not the kind of mayor i'm going to be. sir, i say to you with all due respect, if you don't like to vote for me do not vote for me but don't deny these peepople the right to vote for me. >> reporter: weiner's communications director apologized to an intern last night. barbara morgan tells cbs she's sorry for scathing comments that included a rant about the intern. after the intern provided an unflattering account of the weiner campaign to a new york newspaper. charlie, gayle. >> congress begins its summer recess this morning. but this morning, president obama is on capitol hill. they'll be taking on republicans over the budget in september. yesterday, the president offered the gop a cut in the corporate tax rate as long as the money's used to create jobs. >> we can't allow an impasse
7:09 am
over long-term fiscal challenges to distract us from what the middle east need middle class needs right now. so here's the bottom line. if folks in washington really want a grand bargain, how about a grand bargain for middle class jobs? >> cbs news political director john dickerson is here with us. so why is the president going to capitol hill? >> the white house asked for this meeting. it wasn't democrats calling for him to visit. although in conversations with members of congress in both the senate and the house, they have been wanting the president to give direction, particularly on the affordable care act. his health care plan that's getting beaten about. so the president's going up there to talk about his health care plan, how he's working to make sure that gets implemented. but also his plan for jobs and how he's going to go forward with this set of budget fights
7:10 am
we're going to have in the fall that are going to be ugly and are going to be very high stakes. so that's kind of giving the road map. >> do we have any measurement how successful he's being in getting across the economic message? >> we don't have a measure yet. but they hadn't been too successful before. it's hard to change the conversation. what he's trying to do now is narrow -- we talk about the grand bargain. the grand bargain used to be an exchange where the president would accept some cuts in entitlements. that was the big grand bargain. that's gone basically. now we're in a little mini grand bargain. what that is the president says i will support cuts in the corporate tax rate if we use that money to pay for infrastructure. the idea is to focus republicans on policies they have supported in the past to try to make a clear political break between what the president supports and put pressure on republicans so it's gotten much smaller, this strategy. >> any response from the republicans so far? >> they don't like this idea of splitting corporate from person
7:11 am
tax breaks. the head of the finance committee in the senate who has been working on tax reform doesn't like it either. the white house says wait we're giving you some tax breaks on the corporate side. please take yes for an answer. that's where the fight is at the moment. >> on the politic, of anthony weiner, there was a note in politico this morning that huma is taking a leave of absence from her work with the secretary of state. from that job to her foundation. >> can you read anything into that? >> we can read so much. where to begin. we could go
7:12 am
baseball association is ready to step up. statistically alex rodriguez is among the best the game has ever
7:13 am
seen, but major league baseball is expected to suspend him or possibly banning him for life overal gations he was involved with a now closed clinic accused of pedaling performance enhancing drugs. to be talking about measures this punitive they must. li >> reporter: a lifetime ban will unpreced be unprecedented and maybe more of a negotiating tactic. going >> it's more difficult to get a lifetime ban. he's not the first player to use peds. he's also not the first player not to be caught lying about peds. in fact, if that's the case. ying i >> reporter: still even a suspension could be a career ould b ender for the 38-year-old third r-old third baseman who is already battling major injuries. injuri >> he's not a welcome presence s and to new york yankees.ot >> there it goes left field. >> reporter: while a-rod >> admitted using banned substances between 2001 to 2003 he claims n 2001
7:14 am
he hasn't since. he in an interview for the "sports illustrated" cover story prophetically titled "the last nce. days a-rod," he seems hopefu optimistic. i'm not giving up, he said, i have tremendous faith. and hopefully there's a happy ending somewhere. while the final chapter on a-rod is yet to be written, it may wh already be too late for a happy ending.te >> it's going to be remembered fo as one of the greatest if not the best player of his one of generation, but he made a lot of very bad decisions at the end e which really cost him his legacy. >> reporter: arod's attorney has vowed to fight any suspicion. vo >> terrell brown, we thank you. prepackaged salads under ged fire today. authorities say they caused a harsh stomach bug known as invest cyclospora. the outbreak has hit 13 other states.ther sta and the federal government says
7:15 am
the salad mix is not linked to is all the illnesses. nearly 400 people have reported getting ill. the parasite is spread by food and water causing flu-like symptoms. new economic numbers show the recovery's picking u.n. speed up speed. the commerce department says the economy grew 1.7% from april to june. that's faster than analysts expected. another report says american businesses added 200,000 new jobs this month. cbs news jill schlesinger with us. what do these numbers mean? >> we're in a slow growth recovery recovery. first quarter was revised down quite dramatically. we now know the last three quarters, growth under 2% so that's not exactly what we want to hear. it's also much less than we've seen over the last 60 years where growth has averaged somewhere around 3% to 3.5%. so again, slow growth. we are picking up a little bit of steam coming into the first half of the year. but it's not where we want it to
7:16 am
be. >> and jobs? >> jobs well the adp gives us the signal potentially the friday employment report by the government could be better than expected. we're expecting somewhere around 150,000 to 200,000 jobs. 200,000 job pace for the month is a fine job pace but it's not strong enough to get those 11. million people back to work or to drive down the unemployment rate from its current 7.6%. >> what about that recent job opening in the amazon factory? it's got a lot of attention. >> it did. i want to point out that we love to see new jobs created but what are the qualities of these jobs? it's okay but this is really underscoring a part-time economy. people cobbling together two or three part-time jobs where they're not getting benefits. trying to make as much money as they were previously. it's very hard. this is a struggle for many americans. >> we hear that home prices -- home prices on the rise.
7:17 am
is that a silver lining? >> you know i'm feeling like a bummer today but prices up over 12% from a year ago. we're still down 12% from the peak. and we also know home ownership is now dipped to the lowest level in 18 years. just 65.1%. why is that important? it does tell you a lot of people frozen out of the housing market or just scared to get back in. so, again, housing is a positive contributor. we still have a long way to go. >> what about the markets? >> here's the thing. the stock market is up huge. we're up about 19% on the year. corporate profits have been growing. but that's a real difference between the real economy and the corporation. companies are making a lot of money because they cut people. but this is not something that you can extrapolate into real people's lives. >> jill schlesinger, thank you. ck president obama is sending two of his toughest critics to
7:18 am
egypt. john mccain and lindsey graham will head there next week. they hope to meet with both the m military and muslim brotherhood which which supports ousted president morsi. mors mccain and graham will urge the generals to move ahead with elections. graham says the trip shows america is unifyied in its approach to the crisis.

out to the bay bridge toll plaza, following an accident on the tunnel of the upper deck of the bay bridge, westbound 80 traffic already stacking up towards the incline. and, of course, it was already a wait behind the pay gates jammed through the macarthur maze. at least 20 minutes just to get on the bridge and obviously heavy towards treasure island. also very sluggish through the altamont pass and livermore but the oakland commute off to a great start. that's traffic. here's lawrence. >> the clouds have gathered again. the sea breeze is blowing. temperatures below average still comfortable in spots inland by the afternoon. plenty of clouds today though and we do have some drizzle at the coastline. temperatures now in the 50s and 60s. sunshine in the valleys, 70s and 80s there. 60s and 70s around the bay and cool 50s and 60s breezy coastside. next couple of days, just minor changes in the weather. a little warmer though over the weekend.

7:31 am
that's not the only problem he's faking with his image. political watches are waiting to see if governor chris christie or rand paul will use it to slam the other. >> reporter: you know chris christie and rand paul are from opposite ends of the republican party. christie is running for re-election in a very blue state but rand paul is a favorite of the tea party. both are running for nomination of president. their feud could be a sign of what's to become of the republican party. >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. >> his response seems to be he has something against me. >> reporter: the battle between chris christie and rand paul is playing out not in the
7:32 am
cornfields of iowa or the streets of new jersey. >> maybe he should start looking at cutting the pore barrel spending. >> i'm probably the most fiscally conservative member of congress. governor christie and others have part of this gimme, gimme, gimme. gimme all of this money. it's not real smart for republicans to be attacking republicans. >> what they'd really like is to see things get done in washington, d.c. >> reporter: the verbal abuse began last week. saying they would hurt efforts to stop terrorism. >> this strain of libertarianism that's going through both parties right now and making big headlines, i think, is a very dangerous thought. and i remember what we felt like on september 12th 2001. >> it's really i think kind of sad and cheap that he would use the cloak of 9/11 victims and say, oh, i'm the only one who
7:33 am
cares about these victims. hogwash. >> reporter: for christie, picking a fight on national security could help him reconnect with member of his own party who are still angry at the governor's embrace with president obama a after hurricane sandy days before the 2012 election. paul's goal in this is to show he represents the future of the party more than christie. >> i think he's on the wrong side of history here and i think they're getting desperate because actually our movement within the republican party is growing. >> sources in the rand paul camp tells cbs news he's done talking about chris christie. as for christie well we'll hear from him later today and see whether he's ready to give it a rest. >> thank you, chip. john dickerson is back with us again. who's benefitting? >> they both get a benefit. chris christie is running in a
7:34 am
blue state and getting some greefl for spending time with the president gets to burnish his national security credentials by talking about a strong defense and 9/11. he gets to beat up on rand paul and rand paul gets to rail against the establishment and that's the box he's putting chris christie in the kind of establishment box and that's the message he puts out. this gets them both a lot of coverage for their views. >> do you think it's a forerunner for the campaign in 2016? >> absolutely. and it's not just going on with these two. we see liz cheney, the daughter of former vice president running a campaign against the establishment in washington, touching on some of these same themes. so this is going on in several different areas in the republican party. >> even if there were parents in the room they would say, you two knock it off.
7:35 am
you're from the same family. >> there is no parent in the room and this happens with parties who don't have a leader, don't have a president, and don't have a charismatic next-in-line candidate. and the republican are going through a very exciting -- maybe crees creates heartburn. they're trying to figure out what the party stands for, what its core principles are and when you throw in a heavy dose of personal interest and self-interest they promote themselves by beating up on the other guy. >> at the same time they're waiting for a coronation. >> they are, but, you know there are problems with that too. >> thank you john. >> thank you, john dickerson. scott simon, a long-time host for national public radio has captured attention, not nr what he said on the airwaves but for what he said on twitter. >> reporter: scott simon was on
7:36 am
vacation in california two weeks ago when his 84-year-old mother called. i can't talk. i'm surrounding by handsome men. emergency surgery. >> reporter: she knew that death was slowly approaching. >> he flew to her and slept on the floor and spent the remaining hours with her. i said mother you need to get rest. i knew what she meant. no, i don't. it was, rest? i've only got a few hours sleeping. >> reporter: that kind of deathbed candor struck simon as worth sharing with his friends, family and 1 million twitter followers. >> in her pain and in her misery, she was giving not just me but us a great performance.
7:37 am
and i wanted to share it. i'm glad i shared it with the world. >> reporter: what unfurled in bursts of 140 characters or less was a poignant loving account of his mother's last account. the funny. >> listening to low boherne. maybe opera will heb. i see dawn in the sky. i want to keep my mother back, keep her, period. >> reporter: her words and hiss. >> mother's asks will this go on forever? this means pain dread. no. she says it will go on forever, you and me. yes. >> reporter: his mother should not be a stranger to "weekend

7:39 am
iphone tweeting and there were hours that went by where my mother was snoozing in and out and i was left alone with my thoughts. >> reporter: it was a very 21st century means of mourning of spreading the word of his mother's death. >> there's nothing left unsaid number regrets. nothing -- no more that we can add. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," dean reynolds chicago. >> wow. i have to say. i winced a little when i fefrt heard he was doing it. then you read what he's saying. it was so poignant. i'm so glad he shared. it's amazing you can do that in 140 characters. you know scott simon. >> i do. to have someone walk through and share it is a sense of peacefulness. >> his mother was beautiful, really beautiful. >> he's a great guy. ahead russia's prlt hat its

[ laughter ] i'm charlie rose with gayle king. norah o'donnell is off. a sentencing hearing under way this morning for bradley man, the soldier who gave hundreds of thousands of classified documents to wikileaks. he faces up to 136 years in prison. a military judge found manning guilty yesterday of espionage, stealing government property and other charges. but the former army intelligence analyst was acquitted of the most serious charge aiding the enemy. correspondent david martin is at the pentagon. david, good morning. let me begin with a question of the acquittal. did they believe within the military justice system that they could get a conviction on that charge? >> well obviously they did. and that's why they brought it. but the fact remains that although they were unable to convince the judge that he had deliberately aided the enemy,
8:03 am
they did get convictions on 20 of 22 counts. and adding up to a sentence of 136 years. that's a pretty stern warning about the consequences of leaking secrets. manning thought of himself as a whistle blower. but the government was able to prove that he was simply a criminal who stole secrets and gave them to wikileaks. and this case is going to go a long way toward determining whether the justice department tries to prosecute julian assange, the head of wikileaks, who was the person in charge of -- in control of those stolen secrets. >> so considering all that we have been hearing about the recent leaks david, do intelligence -- intelligence officials now acknowledge that there is more work that we have to do here? >> you know after the manning case, the president signed an executive order that set up a task force to get classified information under better control.
8:04 am
in other words, make sure that never again can an army private get his hands on so many secrets. so they did things like disable external drives on government computers so people cannot download classified information on to thumb drives and cds. and they set up systems that will track exactly who is browsing and downloading from these systems. but then along comes edward snowden, who used his position as an i.t. guy for the nsa to get around all those safeguards. so now the pentagon and the nsa have instituted this two-person rule which requires i.t. guys like snowden to work in pairs when they are going on to highly classified networks. but, you know in the end, you can't design an air-tight system. it all comes down to trust. >> david, what do you think this impact might have on the effort to get snowden, and what message he might take out of this?
8:05 am
>> well if i think if you are -- if you're snowden, you have lots of reasons to be worried about ever coming under the custody of the united states government. because he not only has stolen secrets, but he has also covered by a particular law which makes it a separate crime to steal communication secrets, which is what he did. so there is plenty of evidence by which the u.s. could use to prosecute snowden. and the fact that he is living in the moscow airport, i think, is testimony to how much he fears prosecution. >> all right. thank you, david martin. anthony weiner says people who want him to quit his campaign for mayor do not know new york. that's part of a new video on his website. and weiner is sending that same message in person to the voters.

south, 25% high rainfall in north carolina south carolina. 22% above normal in alabama. across the board. and we're seeing a double whammy. last year, farms in the south were hit with a drought. this year it's massive rainfall. >> so what's causing it? >> well there's no one smoking gun that you can point to. however, what you can say is that on average, temperatures in the gulf of mexico and the caribbean have been higher than normal. meaning more moisture gets in the air. and when that moisture collides with cold air from canada watch out. that drives tornadoes, hurricanes and all this rainfall. and so we could be looking at a new normal. more energy means more swings. and remember two weeks ago we had this heat dome in the northeast. last month we had a huge blistering temperatures in death valley in california. that's typical of the swings you get as the temperature rises. >> so what crops were you &
