7:03 am
is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah, good to have you back. >> great to be back. >> we begin with the united states sending its strongest message yet, that america stands with ukraine. both governments want russia and its supporters to listen. in kiev this morning vice president joe biden promised ukraine's government another $50 million in american aid. >> the vice president says the united states is ready to help ukraine face what he calls humiliating threats from neighboring russia. holly williams is in the city of donetsk which is largely controlled by militia men who stand with russia. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. vice president biden is trying to resolve the ukrainian government's dangerous standoff with armed pro-russian separatists who are now occupying public buildings in around ten towns and cities here. the u.s. is offering financial aid for ukraine's economy, which
7:04 am
is in tatters after months of political turmoil. but the vice president's visit was mainly a show of support for ukraine's leaders, as they struggle with an insurgency in the country's east, an insurgency that the u.s. accuses russia of instigating and abetting. >> we call on russia to stop supporting men hiding behind masks in unmarked uniforms sewing unrest in eastern ukraine. >> reporter: in a peace deal brokered by the u.s. in geneva last week, ukraine's government offered amnesty to the militants if they lay down their arms and leave the public buildings they have occupied. but they refuse to go. the separatists are russian-speaking ukrainians who are demanding a separate state, or at least greater autonomy. ukraine's government says these photos show the russian operatives who are stirring up the unrest, including this man
7:05 am
who they say is an officer with russian special forces and an expert in sabotage. we believe we also spotted him in the town last week on the back of this tank with pro-russian militants, though we can't confirm his identity. when we asked these masked gunmen who they were, it wasn't a question they wanted to answer. >> can you tell me, are you you cre ukrainian or russian? >> i'm just a person. >> you won't tell me? >> no. >> reporter: russia denies orchestrating the unrest here, but these are the worst tensions between moscow and the u.s. since the cold war. charlie. >> holly, thanks. the death toll climbed to 121 this morning in the sinking of a ferry at south korea. about 180 people remain missing after the ship capsized last week. the criminal probe continues to widen this morning. seth doane is in jindo, south
7:06 am
korea, where he went on the water for a closer look at the massive search effort. >> reporter: good morning. another crew member has been detained today and authorities have requested arrest warrants for the four crew members who were detained on monday. the captain and the third mate, who was steering the ship, and another crew member have already been arrested. this as scrutiny increases over the involvement of the crew. investigators still do not know what caused the ferry to go down, but reports citing south korean authorities say the ship may have changed course gradually before sinking. earlier reports said it made a sharp turn. we hired a small boat today to take us about an hour out, to see where it got into trouble. it's hard to really get a sense for just how big this search and recovery effort is until you are actually out here right where the ferry sank. on the horizon here you can see
7:07 am
all of these different ships, many of them from the korean coast guard and navy. roughly 240 vessels and 30 aircraft plan to be part of today's rescue operation. this is one of those giant cranes that ultimately will be moved into position to hoist up the ship. it is hard to appreciate just how tall it is until you are right next to it. the largest of the cranes is about 50 stories high. but until those cranes are deployed, at least 500 divers have been working in small teams to enter the submerged ferry. kim ju nam is a volunteer who has been diving into the ferry for days. >> reporter: as one of these rescuers and one of these divers do you have any sense of how long this will take? i don't know he said but i want to use every minute and second to quickly recover the bodies. but the pace of the rescue effort is not fast enough for many of the family members of
7:08 am
those who were on the ferry. understand the anguished hearts of the parents who want to go into the water to search for the trapped children themselves, this father of a rescued student said. families still waiting for word on their loved ones are packed into this gymnasium in jindo, where electronic boards flash messages describing those found. authorities told families today that they were discussing installing walls in that gymnasium to improve privacy and decrease inconvenience. but it may also be a sign of just how long authorities feel this search may continue. >> seth, thank you. president obama travels to oso, washington, today to meet with mudslide victims. at least 41 people were killed in last month's mudslide northeast of seattle. dozens of homes were buried. two people remain missing. from there president obama leaves for tokyo tonight. it's the first stop in his
7:09 am
week-long trip to asia. he'll also visit south korea, malaysia and the philippines. violence in yemen this morning may be retaliation for an offensive against al qaeda. gunmen killed four senior security officers in a series of attacks. that follows some of the most intense strikes against suspected al qaeda targets in yemen. american drones took part in those attacks that killed dozens of suspected militants. bob orr is in washington. bob, good morning. we talked about this yesterday. what more do we know about these attacks? >> reporter: good morning, charlie. sources tell us that these attacks were a direct response to intelligence on the ground there in yemen suggesting that al qaeda in the arabian peninsula was preparing, perhaps imminently preparing to mount attacks against military and civilian targets inside the country. we're told that yemeni forces backed by u.s. air strikes over 48 hours hit multiple targets, including a terror camp where two dozen suspected militants were gathered for training. also a missile strike on a car killed ten operatives who were all riding together there. >> bob, i know this was a joint
7:10 am
operation with yemenis. were there any american boots on the ground? >> reporter: as far as we can tell, no, norah. officials tell us there were no american boots on the ground. we also learned that u.s. helicopters apparently were used to transport yemeni commandos into the attack zone. obviously also u.s. intelligence played a big role in providing targets for those drone strikes because since the terror group in yemen is the most lethal branch of al qaeda and is actively always plotting against the u.s., it, therefore, is a legitimate target under the u.s. drone policy. also the u.s. had interest in slowing them down going forward. >> they do have interest in specific aqap targets. >> reporter: they do, charlie. we can't say for sure that they targeted leadership in these strikes. they're worried about a couple of guys. one is the leader of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, the second most powerful figure in the whole network.
7:11 am
he recently led a rally in southern yemen where he gathered about 100 fighters an renewed his pledge to attack the u.s. among al qaeda affiliates, aqap is the most focused on attacking the american homeland and he is the guy behind that. they're also interested in the bomb maker assiri but there's no evidence so far we got any major leaders in this series of strikes. and this morning two former students of a prestigious prep school outside philadelphia face charges that could put them in prison for years. prosecutors say they ran a drug ring catering to the affluent students in the philadelphia suburbs called the main line. the operation was dubbed the main line takeover project. >> reporter: according to court documents investigators learned about the nickname in text messages where the pair discussed plans to take over marijuana sales in the philadelphia suburbs. the investigation started after anonymous tips. >> get out of my face. >> reporter: the two prep school graduates were hauled away in
7:12 am
handcuffs monday, accused of masterminding an elaborate drug ring. 25-year-old neil scott and 18-year-old timothy brooks played lacrosse at haverford school where tuition costs nearly $35,000 a year. investigators say they used their privileged connections to recruit dealers as well as customers. >> scott and brooks employed students from five local high schools and three colleges as what they called subdealers to distribute cocaine, marijuana, hash oil, ecstacy. >> reporter: authorities say the men ran the operation like a business, demanding dealers move at least a pound of marijuana a week. a four-month investigation revealed that scott would have large shipments of the drug delivered from california to his apartment. investigators seized a stash of marijuana, cocaine, mow than $11,000 in cash and three weapons, including a loaded ar-15 rifle. >> this was not a game. these people were in business. they were in business to make
7:13 am
money, and they were going to do whatever they needed to do to make sure that no one threatened their business. >> reporter: brooks' attorney claimed his client was taken advantage of after dropping out of college. >> he was at home. you know, he was idle and suffering from some depression. >> reporter: as for scott, his lawyer says his client is well aware of legal ramifications. >> the main concern for him is how the mandatory minimums are going to operate if he's indeed guilty of the offenses. >> reporter: neil scott is being held on $1 million bail. timothy brooks was released monday after posting $250,000 bail. both are due back in court next month. >> all right, vinita, thank you. a significant new storm system is pushing in from the pacific this morning. it will bring rain, snow and wind to parts of the west coast. meteorologist megan glaros of wbbm said this could cause big trouble as soon as tomorrow. good morning for our viewers
7:14 am
in the west. some of you could see mountain snow today. we're looking at another storm system that will bring rain anywhere from seattle to portland to potentially san francisco, but mountain snow will also be a result that will be paired with winds that will be gusty today. as the storm system progresses on up to the east, we do have the potential for severe weather. anywhere from texas all the way up to minnesota. what we see with this low-pressure system as it progresses on off to the east bringing snow to the cascades, the sierra nevada mountains and rockies, it will then run into very moist, gulf of mexico air in the center portion of the country, the heartland at risk for severe weather tomorrow. for damaging winds, large hail and tornados, anywhere from texas up to minnesota. >> megan, thanks. last year's boston marathon ended in chaos. this year there was nothing but company, strength and will. more than 30,000 runners shook off the memories of last year's bombings an for the first time in a generation, an american won the race. jeff glor is in boston where people are still celebrating.
7:15 am
jeff, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, good morning to you. still celebrating and still running. a lot of runners out here today. you can see behind us the grandstand around the finish line is being taken down this morning. and take a look at the front page of today's "boston globe." "unstoppable." from the very start, a sense of determination. clear skies, heavy security, more than 32,000 runners. more than a million watching. >> i don't think it has sunk in 100% yet. >> reporter: last year meb keflezighi was one of the spectato spectators. >> meb keflezighi wins the boston marathon. >> so sore that i can't even go downstairs. >> reporter: his family fled to san diego when he was 12. he told us the attacks of 2013 motivated him. >> then that night i just said how wonderful would it be to come back and win it for boston. >> for one year your focus has been on the boston marathon. >> 365 days.
7:16 am
>> reporter: at 38, he is the oldest to win here since 1931. the names of the people who died last year were win on the four corners of his bib. >> the first american in 31 years. when you hear that -- >> you know, greg myers was the last one to win in 1983 and he told me two days ago that he's the smartest guy up there on the field. then this morning he says go do it for boston. and happy to be able to do it. >> reporter: shalane flanagan, the top american female finished seventh and led more than half the race. >> i feel i showed boston how much i cared about the city. i'm very proud of what i did today because i couldn't have given any more of myself. i think that's all we can ever ask for. >> reporter: the story of this city's resilience could be seen most in the eyes of the survivors, many of whom took the course. patrick downs and jessica
7:17 am
kennikensky crossed the finish line together. lee ann yanni found closure in copley square. >> we got our finish line back and that's all that mattered. >> reporter: more than a million spectators, more than 32,000 runners. boston police only had to make one marathon-related arrest. >> what a great day, jeff. great interview with meb, the winner. enjoyed seeing that, thank you. one photo captured the spirit of this race and the city of boston, a runner collapsed with less than a quarter mile to go. two other runners stopped and picked him up, then two more pitched in and they all carried the exhausted runner over the finish line. a "washington post" reporter captured the shot. he wrote i'm literally in tears, and charlie, when i saw this yesterday, i had the same reaction i'm having now. which is i tear up. you're headed to the finish line and someone collapses because you've given it your all. the fact that everybody -- that
7:18 am
is such the spirit of boston. it is time to show you some of the morning's headlines. the "washington post" looks at gm's latest appeal for court protection that stems from lawsuits related to the recall of more than two million cars of the last night gm filed a motion in the federal bankruptcy court. the car giant is asking the judge to shield the company from legal action related to ignition defects in cars sold before its 2009 bankruptcy. the "detroit free press" says ford will name mark fields as its next ceo. he is credited with restructuring ford's north american operations. he will take over for alan mulally, who is expected to step down this year.

"the washington post" says the supreme court will hear arguments today in a case that could reshape the television
7:19 am
industry. aereo uses thousands of tiny antennas to capture broadcast tv signals and puts programs online for paying customers in 11 cities, but aereo does not pay licensing fees and broadcasters argue they are no different than cable or satellite companies. cbs is one of the plaintiffs. the "seattle times" said the boy scouts revoked the charter of a seattle church because it allowed a gay scout masser to continue to lead the troop. they hope the council will change its mind next month when robert gates becomes president of the boy scouts of america. and it is 7:19. ahead on "cbs this a few showers overnight a spring storm rolling on through. but that is already moving on by now. we're going to dry things out. the winds are going to be whipping. we have seen some gusts to 20 to 30 miles per hour already. out toward ocean beach, your skies are clearing out already. going to see some very strong

why the government may leave the idea high and dry. that's ahead. police in hawaii say a 15-year-old stow away on a flight from california will not be charged with a crime. they are amazed the boy is okay after riding outside a boeing 767 for more than five hours from san jose to maui. we have a look at the adventure one fbi agent described as quote, not a well-planned thing. >> reporter: the 15-year-old stow away told authorities he had a fight with his parents. he went to san jose airport and got in the wheel well of this boeing 757. this is what he would have seen from take off to the wheels coming up. >> he was weak. he came from the wheel well and fell to the ground, regained strength and stood up inside
7:32 am
walking to the front of the aircraft. it's a miracle, you know, to survive a flight five hours in 35,000 feet with no oxygen. to survive that was a miracle. >> reporter: this is the under belly of a 767. when this plane is at an airport, this come partment door would be closed. the only way to get into the plane is get up on the wheels and crawl up here through this space into this empty area that houses the planes landing gear. that would have been the easy part. once up here, there's little space to avoid being crushed by the landing gear that is here. he spent 5 1/2 hours on a flight to hawaii in a cramped space like this. oxygen 15% of normal and temperatures 50 below zero. >> probably after a minute to five minutes of being up in the air, he passes out and goes into

7:38 am
100 feet across. >> who is the we that underestimated it and why did that happen? >> we have limited information. we have no space telescope out there dedicated to launching on to it. we can see asteroids 150 feet across. this is 60 feet across that forced us to have a wake-up call to recalibrate the probability of a meteor impact. >> how powerful do you think an impact could be? >> in 1908, we had the mother of all city busters hit russia. the force of 1000 hiroshima bombs. it would have taken out all of new york city, most of westchester, stanford, connecticut and jersey city. it would have been horrendous if it hit the metropolitan area. but it hit siberia. >> what can you do? >> the first thing is a no brainer. an early warning system. a satellite sponsored by a private foundation, which would

8:16 am
bloomberg business week is called "freeze your eggs, free your career." it's written by emma rosenblum. she joins us with dr. jamie grifo, a pioneer in this procedure. he is a program director at new york university's fertility center. welcome. the title is is provocative. freeze your eggs, free your career. what is the age of the women you're talking about and why should they do this? >> so the age women are generally freezing eggs is mid to late 30s. it's now down to 37 and is going younger and younger. it's women who generally haven't found a partner but want to have children eventually and have decided to do this procedure. >> i have heard from 20-something women who shall yes re main nameless but for the sake of this conversation we'll call her tdana, it's so unfair you're putting pressure on young women who are working at their careers. now we have to worry about this. have you heard that, dr. jamie? >> absolutely. that's not the intent. the intent is not pressure. the intent is education so women are empowered to make good
8:17 am
decisions. if you don't know the facts you don't make the best decision. do your homework and live your life. you can't plan every piece of it. >> explain how this procedure is done. >> it's hoo a lot like in vitro fertilization, which 1% of babies in the united states are born by that procedure. there's about a two-week process of injections, medications, ultrasounds, blood tests and a minor surgical procedure to remove eggs using ultrasound. then the eggs are frozen for use later and thawing them at a later time allows you to have your 35 or 32-year-old fertility to use when you're 40 or 42. >> i have questions about the success rate of this about what dana brought up too. a lot of the young women certainly here at "cbs this morning" thought this is alarmist, that this is, like, freeze your eggs! freeze your eggs! one more thing that women have to worry about. and also the success rate, because the american society for reproductive medicine does not endorse egg freezing for widespread elective use. they say it can give women false hope.
8:18 am
what are the success rates? >> it's not false hope. people have to be educated. it's highly dependent on the age of the woman. it's also dependent on the skills in the lab and the techniques that have been developed. but we now have approached the same success rates with egg freezing as ibf. so a young 30-year-old woman you can see a 50-plus percent -- >> the same success for freezing an unfertilized egg versus a fertilized egg? same success rate? >> yes. >> are there any downsides to this other than societal and culture issues? >> time, energy, money, complexity. what does it mean when your eggs are in the freezer? how do you besave in can you behave differently? can it have a negative effect? what if it fails and you counted on that as your solution? i think most women get it, they understand this is an insurance policy, not a guarantee, a hope not a promise, and an option for women who choose it and an option to not be chosen as well. it's not about pressure. it's about helping people. >> is it a painful procedure?
8:19 am
sounds painful. >> well, not like in vitro fertilization is painful but it's temporary. >> explain that. this requires daily shots for months -- >> not months. patients learn to give themselves shots over the course of about two weeks. the surgical part is done with intravenous sedation in an office-based procedure using ultrasound and needle used to aspirate the eggs from the ovari ovaries. that's a little painful, but most patients wake up wondering when it's going to start. >> as a journalist, you think this is the future of reproductive medicine. why? >> i think as dr. grif objection said, this is an insurance policy, not 100% guarantee, but for some of these women they feel like they don't have control over their own romantic looich ls. this is giving them one more option to say, okay, i've work sod hard, i'm in the corner office, now i can finally go and try to have kids. >> are more men freezing sperm? >> not because of this, but men have always frozen sperm.
8:20 am

"a fighting chance." good morning, good to see you. >> good morning, good to be here. >> you represent the state of massachusetts. we were all watching boston yesterday, you were at the finish line. >> that's right. it was a great family celebration. that's what a marathon is. people line the runways, you cheer everybody on. every single person who runs across the finish line, we cheer them. >> we want to create new memories and they did that yesterday. >> let's talk about your book. you have been known as a champion for the middle class.
8:34 am
why have you made that your calling? >> like a lot of families, you know, i grew up on the ragged edge of the middle class. my dad worked hard, had a heart attack when i was 12 and turned our family upside down financially. he ended up as a maintenance man, my mom worked a minimum wage at sears. the united states senate in part because america invests in kids like me. i went to a college, a college that cost $50 a semester. because america was really making those investments in kids. today, that's not happening. today, it's a rigged playing field. it's not working. washington is not working for hard working middle class families. >> but, senator, so many people say it's their own fault. they got into this trouble by themselves.
8:35 am
they call it lack of integrity, lack of self-control. the research you have been working for the middle class for a long time. you found something different. you said sometimes good people get in bad situations. elaborate on that. >> one of the things we discovered, i went out and we did a lot of research on families who went broke. what we discovered is those families mostly look like the went to school, bought homes, got married, had kids. the difference is they got totally slammed by a serious medical problem, had a long period out of work or a death in the family or a divorce. those three reasons alone account for more than 90% of all bankruptcy filings. it was like it was in my family. you could work hard, you can play by the rules and still take a terrible smack to the head financially. >> you make 2.1 -- we are not
8:36 am
investing the things that made america great, including not providing the opportunities it did for you. it's growing. look at the top 1% is droing much larger. what is it that this country and the congress that you are a member of do? >> i think the game is rigged. start with the banking system. starting back in 2000, the largest financial institutions figured out they could make a bazillion dollars by tricking families on mortgages. then they packaged them up and sold them into the economy like boxes full of grenades with the pins pulled out. >> did dodd-frank take care of that or not? >> watch what happened. we bailed them out. we got some financial reforms in place. look where we are today. those ceos of the largest financial institutions still
8:37 am
strut around washington. those big banks still push back on the regulators and block real change. today, those large financial institutions are 38% bigger than they were when we bailed them out. and they break the law and nobody goes to jail. that's not a level playing field. that's not a fair system. they get richer, everybody else -- >> regulations or tax reforms the answer? >> yes and yes. >> the tax reform should be -- >> we should stitch up the loopholes in the tax system. but, that's really the key. it's that right now washington works for those who can hire an army of lobbyists and an army of lawyers. it doesn't work for regular families. if we don't make that fundamental change, we are going to live in a world where the rich get richer, the powerful get more powerful and everybody else falls behind.
8:38 am
>> isn't your own party in this? >> look, i have made no secret about calling out anyone that i felt there was a problem on. during the bank bailout, i went just as hard after the democrats and the republicans in terms of how they were administering the bailout of the financial institution. by the way, i should say -- >> you wanted to fix this by being the head of the consumer protection agency and president barack obama said no to you. >> you know, the way i want to remember this is this little consumer agency. i had an idea for an agency that would help level the playing field, make sure families didn't get cheated on credit cards and mortgages. i wanted to get this agency and i want to be clear on this, that agency never would have become law if barack obama had not been in the white house fighting for it. i was disappointed. i didn't get to run it. look how things worked out. >> it turned out well.
8:39 am
>> thank barack obama for not appointing you. >> look, it was never about a political future for me. what it was about is fighting for the things i believe in. >> you still continue to do that. you said in the book, three things you never thought you would be, a blond, meeting a president and united states senator. even when you were drafted to run, you said i don't want this job, i'm sick of politics. you family told you not to do it. here you are today, a united states senator. people are saying, buzz, buzz, buzz, president. i have heard you say no, but you have said no to many things. why not consider this? >> i'm not running for president. we have to make changes right now. this is not about years from now and putting things off. we have to focus right now on what's happening in the united states congress. >> i want to ask one question. people raised this about you. you say you are not running for president. does that mean you will not run for president in 2016.
8:40 am
>> you can ask me a lot of different ways, but the key is, i'm not running for president. i'm out here working on the issues we need to work on right now and i gotta say, we need to refinance the student loan deficits, we need to raise the minimum wage. we need to secure social security and hold big financial institutions accountable. and we need not to put that off. we need to work on it right now. like i talk about in the book -- we have to make sure our kids have a fighting chance. >> you have the final word. >> your children must be proud. your son said mom you are not funny to a daughter that said you are boring. they can no longer say that about you. >> thank you for being our first live interview. we were delighted to have you here. the book is "a fighting chance." it goes on sale today. the winter that just wouldn't quit. one thing that did stop, the
