welcome to the "cbs overnight news." i'm norah o'donnell. the hometown candidates scored decisive victories in the new york primary. hillary clinton put the brakes on bernie sanders recent momentum trouncing him in state she served as u.s. senator. for the republicans the landslide was even greater. donald trump scored his biggest win of the campaign with john kasich second and ted cruz a distant third. >> we don't have much of a race any more based on what i am seeing on television. senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. and we have won another state as you know.
we have won millions of more votes than senator cruz. millions and millions more votes than governor kasich. we have won, and now especially after tonight, close to 300 delegates more than senator cruz. we are really, rocking. we expect we will have weeks, these are places they're in trouble. big trouble. it is really nice to win the delegates with the votes. it's really nice. >> trump! trump! trump! trump! trump! >> nobody should be given delegates, which is a ticket to victory, and it is not a fair ticket. even though we are leading by a lot. we can't be caught, it's impossible to catch us.
nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting. that's what is going to happen. and you watch. because the people aren't going to stand for it. it is a crooked system. it is a system that is rigged. we are going to go back to the old way. called you vote and you win. we will be going into the convention no matter what happens. i think we are going to go in so strong. over the next number of weeks. we just saw a poll come out of california which is an unbelievable poll. but we are going to go into the convention, i think, as the the winner. but nobody can take an election away with the way they're doing it in the republican party. >> god bless new york. and god bless the commonwealth of pennsylvania. i'm so excited to share with you what america has learned over the past few months.
and it has nothing to do with the politician winning his home state tonight. it has everything to do with what we have seen in the towns and faces that have been weathered with trouble, joblessness and fear. it is what we have learned looking at the factories that have been shuttered and the hearts that are closing. we have learned america is at a point of choosing. the media will say it is about choosing a president. but it really isn't. our real choice is personal. and every generation must make the same choice. will we continue to live in the past with what we know no longer works? or will we move forward to a new and better place? the people in state after state have made it clear -- they cry out for a new path. this its the year of the outsider. i'm an outsider, bernie sanders is an outsider. both with the same diagnosis,
but both with very different paths to healing. millions of americans have chosen one of these outsiders. our campaigns don't find our fuel in bundlers and special interests. but rather directly from the people. >> for the democrats, new york voters had hillary clinton claiming victory and bernie sanders looking for ward to the primary in pennsylvania. >> thank you, new york! thank you. >> hillary! hillary! hillary! thank you all so much. thank you. you know, today, today you proved once again, there is no place like home. [ cheers and applause ] you know, in this campaign we have won in every region of the country.
from the north to the south to the east to the west, but this one is personal. new yorkers, you have always -- you have always had my back. and i have always tried how to have yours. today, together, we did it again. and i am deeply, deeply grateful. i want -- i want to thank everyone who came out and voted and to all of you across new york who have known me and worked with me for so long. it is humbling, it is humbling that you'd trust me with the awesome responsibilities that await our next president.
and, and to all of the people who supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unites us than divide us. now, i don't want you to tell anybody this. keep it -- shh. but secretary clinton is getting a little bit nervous. [ cheers and applause ] and she is getting nervous because we have won seven out of the last eight caucuses and primaries. she is getting nervous because when we began this campaign we were 60 points behind.
and in the last couple weeks, a few national polls have actually had us in the lead. and she is getting nervous because the democratic voters know that in virtually every national match up general election poll we beat donald trump by wider numbers than she does. [ cheers and applause ] and the american people are catching on that if we are going to prevent trump or some other republican from occupying the white house, which would be a disaster for our country, we have got to campaign to make sure that that does not happen. [ cheers and applause ] the "cbs overnight news"

welcome to "cbs overnight news." i'm ann awerner. president obama arrives in saudi arabia, the first stop on a week long trip that will take him to britain and germany. in riyadh the president will meet with leaders of the six persian gulf nations. at the top of the jenn, the battle against isis. before he left, mr. obama sat down with charlie rose to discuss u.s. efforts to dislodge isis from iraq's second biggest city, mosul. >> this is a long, hard fight as i just said last week. but what we have seen is, they have lost territory and as we see the iraqis willing to fight and gaining ground. let's make sure we are providing them more support. we aren't doing the fighting ourselves. when we provide training, we
provide special forces backing them up, when we are gaining intelligence working with coalitions that we have. what we have seen is we can continually tighten the noose. my expectation is that bite end of the year we will have created the conditions where by mosul will fall. >> when you arrived in office, i think one of the ear things you said to the c.i.a. director is i want to get osama bin laden. i assume you feel the same way about baghdadee. >> i feel the same way about the entire isil leadership structure which is as wicked and as destructive as any group of individuals on this planet. >> do you think you will be able to get baghdadi by the end of your term? >> my goal tips make sure we are doing things right. weaned have got a plan. and we execute it. you sake btake bin laden as an example. i would have lakd to get him the first year. you don't have the luxury as
president. what you have the ability to do is put and train, pieces, intelligence, military,lope -- diplomatic. keach keep on grinding it out. >> let me turn to the news recently, the 28 pages of the 9/11 report. have you read it? >> you know, i have a sense of what is in there. but this has been a process which we generally deal with through the intelligence community. and jim clapper, our director of national intelligence has been going through to make sure that -- whatever it is that its released is not going to compromise some major national security interests of the united states. there are just reams of intelligence that are coming through constantly. some of them are raw. and not tested. some of them are -- >> some of that may be in the 28
pages. >> some may be in the 28 pages. i don't know. the point is it is important for there to be, orderly process where we evaluate this. because -- what can end up happening is if you dump a whole bunch of stuff out there that nobody knows exactly how credible it is, was it verified or not. it coulden end up creating problems. >> it has been a long time? >> that i will hopefully the process will come to a head very soon. >> what about in congress that will allow the families to sue the saudi government and other governments in different circumstances? >> i am opposed because of the second clause. this is not just a bilateral, u.s./saudi issue. this is a matter of how generally the united states approaches our interactions with other c other -- other countries. if we open of the possibility that individuals in the united
states can routinely start suing other governments. then we are also opening of the united states to being continually sued by individuals and other countries. i asked my dentist if an electric toothbrush was going to clean better than a manual. he said sure...but don't get just any one. get one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque and rotates to sweep it away. and oral-b delivers a clinically proven superior clean versus sonicare diamondclean. my mouth feels super clean! oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean. i'm never going back to a manual brush. ♪ i don't think that's how they're made. klondike hooks up with tasty flavors... the best ice cream bars ever conceived.

from 60 minutes to ted lew, a congressman from california. he has a computer science degree from stanford member of the house committee that eversees information technology. he agreed to use our phone to talk to his staff knowing they would be hacked. and they were. all we gave knoll was the number of the 60 minutes iphone we lent the congressman. >> hello, congressman, sharon from 60 minutes. >> as soon as i called, congressman lew on his phone. knoll and his team were listening and recording both ends of our conversation. >> i'm calling from berlin. i wanted to talk to you. >> talk to you about this hack stoerg story we are working on. >> reporter: they were able to do it by exploiting a security flaw they discovered in signalst system seven, ss 7. little known but vital global network that connect phone carriers. >> congressman, thank you so
much. >> every person with a cell phone needs ss 7 to call or text each other. though most of us have never heard of it. knoll says attacks on cell phones are greg as the number of mobile devices explodes. but ss 7 its not the way most hackers break into your phone. those hacks are on display in las vegas. >> three days of nonstop hacking. >> that's where john herring guided us through the unconventional convention where 20,000 hackers get together every year to share secrets and test their skills. >> proving what is possible. any system can be broken. just knowing how to barack it. >> reporter: herring is a hacker himself. the 30-something whiz that co-founded mobile security company lookout when he was 23. lookout has developed a free app that scans your mobile phone for malware and alerts the user to an attack.
>> how likely is it that somebody's phone has been hacked. >> in today's world there is really only type of two companies, or people, those who have been hacked and realize it. those who have been hacked and haven't. >> how much do you think people have been ignoring the security of their cell phones, thinking i have a pass code, i must be fine? >> i think most people have not really thought about their phones as computers. and that, that's really starting to shift. >> that's what you think of it. like having a laptop now? >> absolutely. your mobile phone is a super computer in your pocket. more technology in your mobile phone than was in the spacecraft that took man to the moon. i mean it is really unbelievable. >> reporter: is everything hackable? >> yes. >> everything. >> yes. >> reporter: if somebody tells you you can't do it? >> i don't believe it. >> john herring offered to prove it. he gather aid group of ace hackers in our las vegas hotel. each of them a specialist in cracking mobile devices and figuring out how to protect

all karsten's team in berlin needed to get into the phone was the number. remember ss 7, the little known global phone network we told you about earlier. there is a flaw in it. that allowed knoll to intercement and record the congressman's calls, and track his movements in washington and back home. >> the congressman has been in -- in california. most specifically the l.a. area. zoom in here a little bit. torrance. >> the ss 7 network is the heart of the worldwide mobile phone system. companies use ss 7 to exchange billing information. billions of calls and text messages travel through its arteries daily. also the network that allows phones to roam. >> are you able to track his movements even itch he moves the location services and turns that off? >> yes, mobile network, independent from the gps chip in

explanation all i can do is say i'm sorry. awe thought was pretty much what i needed to hear. >> reporter: today they're not only cordial. >> saturday we want to the trampoline park. >> they're friends. such close friends. not long ago, jamal told andrew he loved him. >> i just started weeping, because he doesn't owe me that. i don't deserve that. >> reporter: did you forgive for his sake or for yours? >> for our sake. not just us, for our sake. >> reporter: jamal went on to tell me about his christian faith and a hope for kinder man kind. he wants to be an example. now he and andrew give speeches together about the importance of forgiveness and redemption and clearly if the two guys from the coffee shop can set aside their bitter ground. what is our excuse? steve hartman on the road in bentonharbor, michigan. >> that's the "cbs overnight news" for this wednesday.
