7:04 am
relevance relevance or that the information is substantial. the revelation emerged from a broader allegation that goes back ten years. the suspects are afghan or pakistani with links to al qaeda. including two men believed to have been the bodyguards of osama bin laden. police arrested them for acts of terrorism in pakistan including having a hand in orchestrating the 2009 attack at a market in pakistan that killed more than 100 people. >> charlie d'agata in london thank you. the white house says it's reviewing its counterterror operations after the death of two hostages in a drone strike. the united states wants to avoid killing any more hostages one of those killed in the strike was an american. >> president obama revealed the deaths on thursday. he apologized to the families of the two victims. david martin is at the pentagon. good morning. >> >> good morning. president obama once promised before the cia launched a drone strike it would know to a "near

7:06 am
that looedereader turned out to be ahmed farouk who once launched a ploth plot to hijack pakistani vessels and ram them into warships. another drone strike killed another american adam gadahn. again without the cia realizing it. gadahn played a leading role in al qaeda recruiting and propaganda he had been indicted for treason and had a $1 million price on his head. he converted to islam when he was 17 and attended the islamic center of orange county. shortly after being kicked out of the center in 1997 he left the country for pakistan and joined al qaeda. his father seemed dumbfounded when he talked to cbs news in 2004. >> i can't imagine that he would be involved in what they're thinking he might be. >> reporter: if white house spokesman was asked if the president felt regret for having
7:07 am
unknowingly killed two americans fighting for al qaeda. he said in a word no. >> david, thank you. war when weinstein was a 73-year-old aid worker from rockville, maryland the husband and father of two daughters was kidnapped in lahore pakistan in 2011 days after he planned to come home. his wife said in a statement "those who took warren captive over three years ago bear ultimate responsibility." she thanked members of congress and fbi officials for helping her then she said "unfortunately the assistance we received from other elements of the u.s. government was inconsistent and disappointing." michael morrell is a former cia deputy director. he is still bound by some laws of secrecy so there are aspects of the story he can not talk about. good morning, mike. >> good morning, charlie. >> suppose the president put you in charge of the review. what is troubling about that? and what is the question you most want to answer so that we
7:08 am
can understand how many not to let this happen again. >> charlie, i'd want to know a couple things. one, i'd want to know who whether all of the normal procedures were followed here this morning's eye eye is er numbwo werne. o numb tould'd want to know how do we do a better job collecting intelligence on what is going on inside these compounds. >> do you suspect there was something not happening here that should have happened. >> i don't know since i don't know the facts but if i was on the review that's what i would be looking at. >> i wonder if you can help people understand because that phrase "hundreds of hours of surveillance" of watching this particular compound how could you miss that there were those in the cia miss that there were hostages inside? >> hostages tend to be hidden norah. hidden for days and days and days and it's quite possible that you might look at a compound for some period of
7:09 am
time. >> what can you tell us michael, about those american al qaeda members killed in the strike? how significant is this? >> both of them were very significant. ahmed farouk wasfarouk was a senior al qaeda commander, a guy behind a number of terrorist plots. very important to remove him. adam gadahn was a propagandist. his job was to sell the al qaeda message, to radicalize young people around the world so important, too, to remove him from the battlefield. >> michael morrell, thank you so much. families criticize policy on hostages so strongly. that's ahead on "cbs evening news" "this morning." >> at least 18 people in indiana are hurt after a stage collapsed in a high school auditorium. students were performing in a concert concert. dramatic video shows their plunge into the orchestra pit when the floor gave way. o yo milleth hese thul s hvikn ch mmis it ad haed michelle. >> reporter: good morning. this high school in westfield,

7:12 am
found high ranking members of the sheriff's office gave bates special treatment and intimidated subordinates to do the same. cbs news has obtained records from an internal investigation by the tulsa county sheriff's office that found robert bates had only received a fraction of the training required for the advanced reserve deputy program but he was still allowed to operate with almost the same powers as a full-time deputy. the investigation reportedly found that training officers were asked to alter records to make it appear that bates had completed his required training when he had not. one of bates' training officers told investigators that he signed off on the altered departments because he was afraid of being punished or perhaps transferred. two other training officers who refused to falsify records for bates were reportedly transferred to less desirable jobs in the sheriff's office. numerous red flags were raised by other officers and department officials about bates' level of training almost as soon as he joined the force. when bates was unable to qualify at the gun range, a decision to suspend him was reportedly
7:13 am
reversed by supervisors. the report says deputies described his behave glor the field as scary but they were told by supervisors to stop messing with bates because he does a lot for the county. bates has pleaded not guilty in the shooting death of 44-year-old eric harris. on monday, the sheriff acknowledged the twine investigation but denied bates was treated differently. >> there was an investigation that occurred. i believe that they found that there was no special treatment. >> brian edwards, the undersheriff who apparently received the report says he doesn't remember the investigation into bates' behavior. the sheriff's office says no action was taken on the investigation's purported findings. on thursday, protesters in tulsa demonstrated calling on sheriff glanz to resign. >> it's time for him to step down. no questions. >> reporter: public records show bates has purchased several cars weapons, and other equipment for the department since he joined them 2008. we've also learned that the
7:14 am
judge who has been assigned bates' manslaughter case is considering if he should recuse himself because of his close ties to the sheriff's office. >> omar thank you. troubling details are emerging in the death of freddie gray, the baltimore man who died of a spin injury after being arrested. a lawyer for one of the arresting officers says gray was not wearing a seat belt in the police van to the station. officers used both handcuffs and leg irons to restrain him. the new information angered protesters. they again clashed with police last night outside baltimore city hall. the jury deciding whether to execute the boston marathon bomber will hear the defense's case next week. the prosecution tried to leave unforgettable memories before it rested yesterday. survivors recalled how they tried running after the first explosion only to be hurt by the second. >> don daaler is in boston with the story that brought manager in the courtroom to tears. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. with the last of their witness testimony, prosecutors drove home why they believe dzhokhar
7:15 am
tsarnaev should get the death penalty. they made it clear that the pain and the terror that the victim o suffered two years ago are far from over. >> reporter: prosecutors placed surveillance video over a new audio recording showing the shock and horror of that day. >> oh my god. something blew up. something blew up. oh, my god, something happened. holy [ bleep ]. is. >> when the second bomb exploded, steve woolfenden thought he was still standing. he tried to escape with his then three-year-old son whose head was bleeding. but woolfenden seen here hanging on to the stroller realized he couldn't. "i looked down and saw my leg sticking out of my boot but it was no longer connected to my body." to his right, denice richard was crouched over her eight-year-old son martin. moments before dzhokhar tsarnaev had been lurking just feet away. woolfenden testified "i saw martin's face and i could see a boy that looked like he was fatally injured."
7:16 am
i could hear pleas and "martin." he was pleading with her son. the doctor told the court he would have been extreme pain. "i can say with an extraordinarily high degree of medical certainty that he did not die instantaneously." earlier jurors saw photos of the survivors who lost limbs as one of them heather abbot, read each of their names. mark phuc rile has lost hiss leg and has shrapnel in the other. he'll likely lose that one, too. prosecutors closed with the video of denice richard trying to console her dying sewn and in the video you can see the little boy's arm rise up towards his mother before it fell back to the pavement. there were tears from the courtroom as well as among the journalists watching. norah? >> how awful. >> it's tough to hear those

details. we've not heard that before. >> very painful, don. thank you. comcast called off its $45 billion merger with time warner cable this morning after intense scrutiny from regulators. ceo brian roberts said in a statement today "we move on. we would have liked to bring our great products to new cities but we structured this deal so if the government didn't agree we could walk away." cbs news financial contributor mellody hobson is in san francisco. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. what caused this deal to fall apart? >> well, certainly the competition didn't want the companies. at the end of the day the federal communication commission, they got rid of this deal. they issued what's called a hearing designation ord per that puts a $45 billion deal in the hands of an administrative law judge. basically it was their way of saying this deal is not good for consumers. >> you think time warner will go back to being in play? >> yes, i do. charter communications, the

number-four player has said unambiguously that they want to own time warner cable and john malone is behind that company. he usually get what is he wants. >> and rupert murdoch made a go at time warner as well. >> yes. time warner the other time warner as opposed to cable. the whole industry is in play. >> senator franken was here at this broadcast earlier this week mellody, he made it very clear, chances are he's very happy this deal has fallen apart. would this have been a bad deal for consumers? >> well, the fcc is signals they thought it would have. i'm less sure about that. there would have been consumers who would have won. for example the fcc probably would have mandated that they bring high speed internet access at a reasonable cost to rural areas. that would have been pluses and minuses in this situation. >> what do you think it mean whats for the cable industry as a whole. >> the cable industry stri is
7:19 am
changing so fast anyone who tells you that they know it's going to look like in ten years is lying. because everything is changing fast. the subscriber base is shrinking and people are getting their content over the web because of netflix and others. so the whole business is going to look very, very different in a few years. >> and what they most want is a broad band capacity. >> that's right. >> so many options these days. thank you p mellody hobson thanks a lot. hillary clinton's campaign spokesman calls the new book about the clinton foundation a spear project. ahead, we'll show you the details that h

good morning. let's get a check of the bay bridge once again. chp advised that a wind advisory be issued for the span after an early-morning motorcycle accident on the upper deck. this accident cleared but look at the backups behind the pay gates. it is really jammed up especially on that 580 approach solid from just beyond the 24 interchange. it's also heavy on the eastshore freeway. you can see how windy it is actually in our dublin cam moving back and forth a bit. at least the drive time is down. "friday light." 17 minutes between the altamont pass and 680. that's "kcbs traffic." with the forecast, here's roberta. how windy is it? west wind currently 25 miles an hour in oakland. golden gate socked in with clouds. very little clearing at the coast today. partly cloudy. currently in the 50s. west winds 10 to 20 today. temperatures in the 50s, 60s up

>> oh, i can think of some things. [ laughter ] >> i was going to say, charlie, what could they say? as long as they don't say "yo mama," i don't get. >> it maybe that's part of it. >> welcome back to cbs "this morning." hillary clinton faces more attacks over an upcoming book by one of her critics, cbs news has obtained a copy. how its author says international donors to the clinton foundation benefited from their relationships with the political family. >> plus, we go inside the rescue and recovery operation for migrants in the dangerous waters off the italian coast. crystal ward is here with a preview of her "60 minutes" report. >> but first, time to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. "usa today" reviewed surveillance photos of the iranian ships suspected of trying to deliver arms to rebels in yemen. it found the convoy consists of several small vessels, including a freighter, tug boat and two warships. the united states defense
7:32 am
officials tell cbs news that ships have turned around. the uss roosevelt was sent toe the waters off yemen to join other u.s. navy ships. >> the "washington post" says the senate confirmed loretta lynch to replace eric holder as attorney general. she's the first black woman to hold this post her confirmation stalled for more than five months because of her support of the president's actions on immigration. lynch is expected to be sworn in on monday. >> the billings "gazette" says a retired montana judge who partly blamed a teenager for her own rain will receive a lifetime achievement award. in 2013 he sentenced a teacher to one month in prison for raping a 14-year-old. he will be honored by the yellowstone area bar association. and a "new york times" editorial urges hillary clinton to be straightforward about the clinton foundation's finances. the statement is part of a fallout about the clintons and their contributors around the world. julianna goldman in washington has a copy of the new book.
7:33 am
julianna good morning. >> reporter: good morning, the book is unnerving donors and creating a distraction for hillary clinton in its earliest days. it's talking about money it received from foreign governments and individuals while hillary clinton was secretary of state. on thursday, it was chelsea clinton's turn to defend her family's foundation. >> we'll be even more transparent. that but this week hillary clinton's campaign has had to defend itself in a wake of a series of articles tied to a book "clinton cash said to be released next month." the author raises questions about whether donors benefited from their relationships with the clintons.
7:34 am
according to a copy obtained by cbs news schweitzer implies a potential quid pro quo riding u.s. assistance to nigeria. former president bill clinton was paid 1.4 million by a nigerian news needs ya group to give two speeches there. the author says the group had close ties to the country's president. it also raises questions about canadian billionaire frank giustra, including the impication that hillary clinton supported the colombia free with trade agreement because it helped giustra's business interests. in another example, the "new york times" reported on a previously undisclosed donation of $2.35 million to the foundation from the owner of a russian uranium mining company looking to operate in the u.s. that required approval by the state department among other agencies. on thursday, campaign press secretary brian fallon pushed back. in one memo he specifically
7:35 am
targeted the "new york times" story and sent a three-page memo to clinton supporters calling the book a smear project. the bottom line fallon writes, are mains that the book fails to produce a shred of evidence supporting the theory that hillary clinton ever took action as secretary of state for the purposes of supporting the interest of donors to the clinton foundation. the author was a speech writing consultant to former president george w. bush and worked for a conservative think tank but he says this summer he'll publish a report on jeb bush's business dealings. gayle, bill clinton is still giving paid speeches. hillary clinton stopped before she announced her candidacy. >> julianna thank you. the captain accused in the mediterranean migrant tragedy made a court appearance in italy this morning. he faces merchandise ss homicide and human trafficking charges. the italian coast guard brought dozens more migrants ashore. clarissa ward had extraordinary access to survivors and their

those desperate satellite phone calls from migrants abandoned by smugglers at sea. his coast guard command center in rome works around the clock, knowing that if their boats don't take action the migrants will likely die. >> difficult to explain that sometimes we have 25 boats asking for rescue we don't know exactly where they are and they all ask to be rescued. >> reporter: and you can't rescue all of them. >> it's not possible to rescue 25 all together and you don't know where they are. >> reporter: do they understand the risks. >> i believe that they understand the risks. >> reporter: but it doesn't stop them. >> i believe they are so desperate that nothing will stop them. >> reporter: so it's like these smugglers are putting a gun to your head. >> something like that. as they put a gun in front of us to save these people. almost something like that. >> boy clarissa it's heartbreaking to watch that. clarissa ward is joining us at the table. good to see you. how big is the problem? we keep hearing extraordinary
7:38 am
numbers, 700 800 people. how big is this problem? >> there's been so much focus on this one tragedy that i think people forget this is much bigger even than just this one tragedy. already in the first four months of this year an estimated 2,000 people have died trying to make this crossing across the mediterranean leaving their homes with the hopes of a better future in europe. >> are they aware of the risk? >> what's so shocking, charlie, is that they do seem to be aware of the risk but they don't seem to be deterred by it. we interviewed a syrian family in turkey who were hoping to cross to italy who ultimately went to greece and i said "are you not concerned as a father to make this choice to take your family on this boat?" he said "there's a chance we could die on the way to europe but staying in syria means certain death". >> and in many cases these families and their extended family are paying for this whole trip. >> and it's very expensive. these are not the most desperate of the desperate. these are people who are well
7:39 am
off, the eritreans on the boat with the rescue we witnessed, they were paying about $1,500 each to get on those boats which is a huge sum of money for them. >> and they make the assumption that if in fact something goes wrong the authorities will pick them up and somehow come to their rescue? >> they're not even waiting for things to go wrong. they go out into international waters sometimes just 30 40 miles off the coast of libya, then they call the coast guard for an s.o.s. and say "pick us up please." >> clarissa ward thank you so much. you can see clarissa's full report on the migrant crisis sunday on "60 minutes" right here on cbs. television personality dr. oz turns the table on his critics. ahead, why he says doctors calling for his ouster are practicing just bad medicine. and if you're heading off to work, you can set your dvr so you can watch cbs "this morning" any time you like. we'll be right back.
