7:03 am
let's go place. welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. >> good morning, charlie. welcome back. >> good to be back. we begin with the missing plane. investigators now believe terror is not a likely cause for the disappearance of malaysia airlines flight 370. police say this morning they have identified the two passengers traveling with stolen passports. they say one is an iranian teenager, who only wanted asylum. >> we have been checking his background and we believe that he is not likely to be a member of any terrorist group. and we believe that he is trying to migrate to germany. >> and police confirm this morning that the other passenger using a stolen passport is also from iran. bob orr is tracking the
7:04 am
investigation. i understand there's still no sign of the plane or the 239 people on board. >> well, good morning, charlie and norah. that's right. this investigation, as you noted, has been marked by frustration by the families and false leads for investigators. searchers still have not found any of the plane's wreckage. now investigators are pretty convinced those two men traveling on the false passports had nothing at all to do with the plane's disappearance. the men, as we reported both iranians purchased their ticket with his the help of an iranian businessman with ties in thailand. they got on that doomed flight to beijing. authorities are comparing their photos and thumb prints against criminal and terror databases but have found no ties at all to terrorism. one man was likely seeking asylum in germany and the other man, we're told was ultimately heading to denmark. they need the plane's wreckage and black boxes to know what happened in those final seconds before flight 370 disappeared. for now, no potential cause can
7:05 am
absolutely be ruled out. but intelligence and law enforcement sources say this is looking more and more like an accident or maybe a criminal act than some sort of terrorism. perhaps the greatest clue we have is the absence of a large field of crash debris. veteran investigators say that suggests the boeing 777 likely hit the water intact because a bomb at a very high altitude like that bomb which took down pan am 103 20 years ago would blow the plane apart in midair likely scattering wreckage over a wide area. so far we've not found one shred of debris. there's been no credible claims of responsibility by any terror group and no intell chatter suggesting any plot or attack against that flight. charlie, norah? >> the flight for search 370 is now four days old. looking in waters west of malaysia. one report says the radar may have tracked the plane to the
7:06 am
malaco strait. seth doane is there where the relatives are anxiously awaiting. >> reporter: that initial flight path to include other areas that the plane might have reached based on how much fuel was on board. the focus of the international hunt expanded today, from the south china sea where the plane vanished to malaysia's west coast at the maloca strait. >> it's a huge massive operation. hopefully, the combination of all these efforts, we'll get more tangible results. >> reporter: as this search stretches into a fourth day, relatives of the 239 people on board are growing more frustrated. the amateur video appeared to capture bottles being thrown at malaysia airline representatives during a heated meeting monday. along with providing food and lodging at this beijing hotel,
7:07 am
the airline is offering passengers' relatives $5,000. but this man's 26-year-old son was on board hasn't taken it. also, he told us he doesn't plan to accept the airline's offer to fly him to malaysia until there's concrete information about the missing flight. so far he says there's nothing. a vigil was held on the streets of kuala lumpur. while mira nori crew member of ander nori started an online vigil. she tweeted it's almost 72 hours. good night daddy. a beijing shopping center is now marking the time passed established a giant stop watch for this search that they're putting on a giant screen several stories high. also here in china, state media is reporting that up to 10 high resolution satellites have been repositioned, adjusted to help
7:08 am
with the search. charlie, norah? >> seth doane, thank you. the united states and nine other countries are involved in the search dozens of ships and aircraft are kris-cross criss crisscrossing 7,000 miles. >> good morning, charlie and norah. constantly expanding into new areas and becoming increasingly desperate. planes and helicopters are using sophisticated surface radar to scan the ocean for debris. given the lack of information about the plane's final location, the teams are only making an educated guess. commander william marks is with the u.s. seventh fleet in the south china sea. >> time is not on our side. anything we can do to expand this search will be better for any survivors. >> reporter: the waters between malaysia and vietnam are
7:09 am
relatively shallow. if you would put the plane on its nose the tail would stick out of the water in most places. shallow water can also confuse sonar, sound waves used to locate objects on the ocean floor. >> i always like to think we need to start by finding the haystack. then we can look for the midst of the needle in that haystack. in this case, the h a. ystack is huge because we don't have the clues. >> that plane went down in deep water in a remote section of the atlantic ocean. search teams located the wreckage within five days but it took another two years to find the flight data recorders in an underwater mountain range. gallo says even if the black boxes are recovered for the malaysia air flight it could be years before investigators and the families of the passengers know exactly what happened. >> we assume the plane has crash
7:10 am
ed ed. but not a bit of evidence. not a may day, nothing. it's almost like a murder mystery with no body. >> reporter: if the plane cannot be found by searching the surface, they'll start to use sonar to search under the water and we're soon reaching the point where this will change from search and rescue to recovery. norah? >> thank you. we'll look into the millions -- yes, millions of false passports that are floating around and airlines are doing very little to check them. don dahler is looking at how criminals are using these stolen passports. that's ahead. holding hearings into gm's response to faulty ignition switches. last month the automaker recalled 1.6 million vehicles after several deadly crashes. as jeff glor reports, the company knew about the problem for a decade. jeff, good morning. >> charlie, good morning to you.
7:11 am
this is the house energy and commerce committee led by michigan republican fred upton. what they'll be exploring, why did gm announce these recalls in 2014 when they first knew about a problem with ignition switches in many compact cars in 2004? this will likely involve gm and nhtsa, the national highway transportation and safety administration. mary barra, one big question this morning, will she testify before congress now that she says she's leading this recall? barra, who has been with gm for more than 30 years, says she just learned of the ignition issue a few weeks ago. 13 deaths and 31 crashes are linked to the problem but there are many more complaints. and there are questions about whether other deaths beyond the 13 are connected. ignition switch that can go for various reasons from the on

7:14 am
some new warnings. elizabeth palmer is is in crimea. >> reporter: president yanukovych or ex-president yanukovyh, depending on your view, is in moscow and gave a press conference this morning. yanukovych argued he is still the democratically elected president of ukraine. i wasn't removed from my post he said in a legitimate way. but he was chased out by furious protesters just over two weeks ago. and now volumenteers in kiev are piecing together paperwork his administration didn't manage to destroy looking for evidence of corruption. across the border in crimea a new self-appointed government is building up an army. 30 more men joined a so-called defense force as the peninsula heads full tilt toward a referendum on sunday. bureaucrats are already mapping
7:15 am
out polling stations. and when we asked whether it would be free and fair the man in charge was indignant. how can i prove it to you, he asked? all i can tell you is my hands are clean. pro-russian passions have been whipped up over the past two weeks of nonstop propaganda on russian tv. older people remember the second world war when some ukrainian nationalists sided with hitler. they believe the new government in kiev has the same sympathies and referendum publicity is playing on those fears. your choice says this billboard, is a crimea run by the nazis or run by russia. the governments of america, of europe and of ukraine all consider that this referendum coming up is illegal. and they say whatever the result turns out to be it will be invalid. norah, charlie? >> thank you. the booming marijuana

it didn't really work out, did it? i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. officials say her running out of time to locate malaysia airlines flight 370. they now believe the plane's disappearance friday is not terror related. >> this morning investigators reveal the names of two iranian passengers traveling with stolen passports. they say that both men were heading to europe probably wanting to live there. bob orr is in washington where he's talking with people involved in the search. bob, good morning. >> good morning. amazingly, we are no closer to knowing what happened to malaysian airlines flight 370. but law enforcement and intelligence sources tell us there is still no evidence pointing to terrorism. there have been no credible claims of responsibility from any terror group and no intel chatter suggesting any plot or attack against the flight. and now investigators are fairly convinced as we reported that those two men traveling on false passports had nothing at all to
8:03 am
do with the jet's disappearance. the men both described as iranians purchased their tickets with the help of an iranian middle man a businessman, through travel agencies in thailand. it then flew from doha to kuala lumpur on their own passports. at that time we're told they switched the stolen passports and then boarded the flight to beijing. authorities are still comparing photos and thumbprints against criminal interrogative bases but finding no ties to terrorism. one man was likely seeking asylum in germany. and sources tell us the other man was ultimately heading for denmark. so for now, no potential cause can be ruled out. investigators desperately need to locate and recover the plane's wreckage and, of course the black boxes to know what was going on with the pilots and that boeing 777 aircraft in the final seconds before flight 370 disappeared. >> all right, bob orr, thank you so much. meanwhile, the military in malaysia reportedly believes that flight 370 left its scheduled travel route. one official says radar tracked the jet as far as the malocca

8:09 am
the president is trying to reach out to a new audience. he's not the first to do it. even nixon said sock it to me in 1968. the president has appeared before in places which would have been considered beneath the dignity of a president in past years. he slow jammed the news with jimmy fallon. he's appeared more than once in the ladies of "the view." neither show is exactly delicate in its approach. but he's trying to reach the audience he needs. so he traded a few mild insults with galifianakis and finally asked, what did you come here to plug? of course, it was health care. they need younger viewers. and the hope is that this will go viral, that it will be repeated and seen many many times on youtube, on the web. so it's just a new way of doing things. >> yeah. well, at the very least, you can say he has a good sense of humor because he knows what you're getting when you go to zach galifianakis. maybe the whole thing -- >> prepared to exchange insults. >> they were in on the joke. >> interesting to hear some of the the president's top advisers saying they're trying to break through in different mediums and
