welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. >> good morning, charlie. a deadly mistake may be responsible for killing five american soldiers in afghanistan. it could be one of the worst instances of friendly fire in nearly 13 years of war. >> the soldiers were in kabul near the pakistan border. margaret is gathering more information at the pentagon. good morning. >> good morning. five americans and one afghan soldier were killed monday night in what appears to be a tragic incident of friendly fire. here is what sources are telling us. they were conducting a joint security operation in zabul when they called in air support. the resulting strike may have accidentally targeted the american soldiers.
7:04 am
the incident itself is still under investigation. the taliban is already claiming responsibility for the initial assault that prompted the air strike. in recent days their attacks intensified ahead of a run off election to decide that country's next president. this friendly fire attack comes as you know as president obama just recently announced all combat troops will be leaving that country by the end of the year. norah? >> margaret thank you. a cbs poll reveals most americans do not like the deal that freed bowe bergdahl. 56% believe we paid too high of a price. 28% say the terms were reasonable. we are at the white house with what else the poll revealed. good morning. >> reporter: our survey also shows the deal is unpopular.
7:05 am
45% disapprove 37% approve and 18% do not have an opinion. the veterans formed an opinion and most oppose the prisoner swap. a majority of u.s. military veterans disapprove of the exchange. 65% saying the u.s. government paid too high of a price for the release of the prisoner of war. 72% feel president obama should have notified congress before authorizing the swap of five senior taliban members for sergeant bergdahl. while the president did not give congress the legally required 30-day notice he did tell 80 or 90 members of his own administration. it left some frustrated despite a lengthy briefing monday. adam kingly of illinois. >> we heard excuses. i didn't get a good answer as to why five taliban were traded and
7:06 am
why it was a good deal. people left more disappointed. >> reporter: democrat felt the end justified the means. >> i am mystified and disgusted that there has been a demonization of the soldier. every american deserves to be innocent until proven guilty. >> reporter: before bergdahl answers questions, military psychologists want to stabilize his emotional and mental health. they want to debrief him about what he saw in captivity. they believe he was in a remote region of pakistan across the afghan border. he was moved from one hiding place to the next auchb blindfolded. >> release me please i'm begging you.
7:07 am
bring me home. >> reporter: for the majority of his captivity, he was with a militant group with linked to pakistan. he was handed over to the u.s. by the taliban. today, he chose not to call his parents. he remains a patient at a military hospital in germany and his physical health is improving. he has no chronic diseases that will prevent him from returning to the united states soon. his return date has not been announced. >> criminal charges could be in the v.a. scandal. they released an audit of clinics across the country. 57,000 military veterans have been waiting over three months to see a doctor and 64,000 fell through the cracks. those veterans enrolled for care but never got an appointment. good morning. >> good morning. this audit reveals the number of
7:08 am
veterans waiting for appointments but a widespread scheme inside the v.a. to hide the wait times because bonuses were on the line. one top official appeared to explain and apologize. >> please be seated. >> reporter: at a hearing of the house veteran's affair committee, the v.a. called the backlog and cover up a failure of basic honesty the v.a. is going to correct. >> there are systemic lack of integrity. this is a breach of trust. it is indefensible and unacceptable. >> reporter: 76% of the clinic's surveyed, at least one worker said they were ordered to alter wait time reports in the computers. a whistle blower in illinois demonstrated for cbs news. the manipulation was to change
7:09 am
the veteran's desired date for care to whenever the next appointment was. when the desired date is the appointment date this is what it shows. >> reporter: at the hearing, the v.a.s acting general said 69 v.a. medical centers are now under criminal investigation up from 26 last month. he is targeting the supervisors who ordered the wait times. >> when evidence is identified supporting a violation of criminal law, we are coordinating our efforts with the department of justice and once someone loses his job or gets criminally charged for doing this it will no longer be a game. that will be the shot heard around the system. >> reporter: the v.a. announced they are trying to call a backlog of 90,000 veterans to
7:10 am
schedule appointments and eliminated bonuses of making appointments within 14 days. a goal the audit says encouraged the cover up. norah? >> thank you. the border patrol in arizona is holding hundreds of children sent there after crossing illegally into texas. good morning. >> good morning. so many are coming in on buses and others flown in here. this facility is struggling to figure out what to do with all those children. meantime, the government is trying to figure out what to do with the undocumented kids that come into the country all at once. these photos show inside the border patrol in arizona. hundreds of children sleeping in makeshift beds under foil
7:11 am
blankets. it's forcing people like paula and her two daughters to take part in a donation drive for the kids. what do you hope it does for the kids? >> people from the outside are thinking about them. we care about them. >> reporter: they are bussed in daily where border agents are seeing more than they can handle. the number of children caught entering the u.s. alone skyrocketed to more than 47,000 in just the first six months of this year, it's almost double the amount of children caught all of last year. the white house is calling multiple government agencies to work together to address the situation. >> to make sure we have add quaut resources to deal with the minors we have seen. >> reporter: border officials say most of the children are apprehended in texas from three central american countries, hon dur ras, guatemala and el salve dor.
7:12 am
some children will be moved to military bases in california texas and next week to oklahoma. that state's governor calls the situation alarming. >> children that will be staying on a military installation for military purposes and coming under who knows what type of conditions are going to have health needs, education needs, language barriers. >> reporter: the kids are going to stay here while their deportation process begins. eventually, sent to other centers around the country. the obama administration is asking for money. marco rubio of florida is a key supporter of immigration reform and leading critic of the v.a. system. good morning. >> good morning. >> if you heard the report what should we be doing about the
7:13 am
undocumented kids increasing in size? >> yeah. it's an alarming story. what is our response? we have had mass migration issues before. in florida, we faced that from haiti an cuba. i know how difficult it can be. we are talking children. in some instances, children with their mothers. we approach it first and foremost humanitarianly. there are deep rooted issues driving it. there are reports of rumors circulating in countries if you are able to get here you are able to stay. it's something we need to address with the government. border security will be important as well. right now, we should be concerned about the humanitarian aspects of it. a large number of children crossing the border by traffickers is going to be a magnet to take advantage. we hope we can come up with a bipartisan plan to deal with it.
7:14 am
>> when will we have that number one, and number two, political pushback on immigration reform. when will we see immigration reform? >> i think we are struggling to find how to handle the situation because it's a serious one involving children the most vulnerable of all people. i hope we can put a group together. as far as immigration reform is concerned, it's the right thing for the country. there's political resistance to that. we were not sent here to poll well but to make a difference for our country. this is related to it. somehow, we have to focus on it that way. beyond it, we have significant problems with the legal system. a number of countries are coming to recruit our talented graduate graduates graduates. >> 47,000 children they are in this country illegally. should they be deported?
7:15 am
>> first of all, they should be treated as humanely as possible as long as they are here. i think what we have to think about is on the one hand they have fears about returning home and each should be analyzed on a individual basis. if you allow children to come and remain legally, you are going to create a precedence for not 47,000 but 147,000. suddenly, in an effort to do a good thing, you have a humanitarian crisis at the u.s./mexican border. i want to turn to the benghazi story. hillary clinton does not appreciate the criticizing of the benghazi attacks. when asked if it's a reason not to run, here is what she said. >> is that another reason not to run? >> actually it's more of a reason to run because i do not believe our great country should be playing minor league ball.
7:16 am
we ought to be in the majors. i view this as, really a part from, even a diversion from the hard work congress should be doing with the problems facing our country and the world. >> is this minor league ball? >> i don't think the issue of benghazi is minor league ball. we need to investigate it to understand what went wrong so the people responsible can be held accountable and put in place measures so it never happens again. the state department had a steady stream of reporting about how dangerous and how much danger that facility was in. it is a fact they did not take sufficient security measures and it is a fact it should not have been there and it is a fact they did not have an extraction plan in place that was sufficient. who made that decision and is that method still in practice
7:17 am
now? those in tripoli and libya are in a similar danger. if she thinks it's something we shouldn't focus on it gives insight on why it happened? >> do you hold her personally responsible for the security? >> this was a systemic breakdown of the security apparatus. she ran the state department. she should have known of the dangers that existed there. in a hearing we had, i asked her specifically about meetings she has with the libyan government where she was made aware of the fact the militias providing the security were unreliable and how dangerous it had become. the brits pulled out. not only has she not been held responsible, no one. four individuals were suspended with pay. all four returned to work. who made the decision not to have sufficient security and are
7:18 am
those types of decisions being made? they are valid inquiries. if she's going to brag about her time at the state department, she thooz talk about the failures. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you. a massive oregon wildfire this morning is forcing dozens of people to flee their homes. the fire is west of bend 150 miles southeast of portland. it's burned ten square miles and is 25% contained. megan glaros is at wbbm saying millions of people in the eastern half of the country face a severe storm today. >> good morning to you. looking at a risk of severe weather from the golf coast to the ohio river valley. there's a threat for severe winds, large hail as well as isolated tornadoes. within that risk area there's the threat for possible flash flooding with some rainfall totals as high as four to six inches over the course of 24

it's tuesday, june 10th 2014. welcome back to "cbs this morning." a san antonio hospital is ready to treat sergeant bowe bergdahl. first, here is a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. five americans were killed in what appears to be a tragic incident of friendly fire. >> this audit reveals a widespread scheme to hide the wait times because bonuses were on the line. >> a systemic breakdown of the security apparatus and she ran the state department. not only has she not been held responsible, no one has been.
8:01 am
she's going to brag about her time, she has to talk about the failures. >> the rain from the gulf coast to the ohio river valleys. donald sterling no longer supports a deal to sell the team. the next month and a half is supposed to be about soccer. a lot of people think it's fifa that needs to get kicking. >> these are -- >> landmark paris bridge is open this morning after a lock down. the love locks pulled the railing right off. >> scientists developed a robot that can converse like a teenager. it screams i hate you and slams the door to its room. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the deaths of five u.s. soldiers in afghanistan. they may have been killed by friendly fire. they died last night in southern
8:02 am
afghanistan near the pakistan border. >> u.s. forces called for an air strike after the taliban attacked. a bomb from a u.s. aircraft appears to have killed the americans. one afghan soldier was also killed. a cbs news poll shows 45% of americans disapprove of the swap for bergdahl. 37% approve of it. bergdahl was exchanged for five taliban prisoners. when he returns to the u.s. he'll do his rehab at the army medical center. good morning. >> good morning. this will be the next stop for sergeant bergdahl once he is well enough to leave the base in germany. he is the longest serving american p.o.w. since vietnam. a team of specialists here have been rehearsing for his return every six months since he was captured. the controversy surrounding bowe
8:03 am
bergdahl is not likely to change the delicate process that happens inside the army medical center. mark went from hostage to free man in 2008. >> it's a shock. overload is the best way to describe it. >> reporter: he was a private contractor on a drug mission in columbia when he and two other americans were taken hostage by rebels. they were rescued after five years and went through the same program that awaits bergdahl. >> coming back from that is not as easy as you would think especially when we are living under the threat of being killed at any moment. it's not as simple as hey, i'm free, now i can go to mcdonald's and drive a car. there's more to it than that. >> reporter: that process is resbi inauguration and consists of three fazes. one and two is medical and psychological. that's taking place overseas. >> first, he has to be able to
8:04 am
manage just the complexity of the sensations of every day life. >> dr. charles marmar is over the medical center and gets p.o.w.s to reintegrate. >> if you go camping and come back to new york city you notice the sensory information. multiply that times 1,000. >> reporter: the third phase is at brook army medical center. briefings are recorded. if he has legal questions, briefings are stopped. contact with family members is limited for a reason. >> the first visit with my family was only 45 minutes long. by the time those 45 minutes were over i was anxious, i was sweating. i had a migraine headache. i was overwhelmed with all these different kinds of emotions. >> reporter: sergeant bergdahl had not chosen to speak with his
8:05 am
family. >> if he's the one who said i'm not ready to speak to my family yet, i think that is a pretty good marker of a very fragile mental state that will take a lot of time to heal. >> reporter: it's unclear whether sergeant bergdahl is aware of the controversy surrounding his case. this facility could be where he first learns about it. gayle? >> thank you. this morning, up to 5 million americans can get a break on student loan payments. president obama signed an executive order that limits monthly payments to 10% of income. after 20 years, if no payments are missed the rest of the loan is forgiven. also at the white house, the president greeted the university of connecticut ncaa basketball champions. it's the second time in history it happened. the only school to win both championships at once. there was a slip up.
8:06 am
look at the uconn star. oh no she fell off the stage. the president made sure she was okay. you know she had to be mortified. later on she was looking at her friends going how could this happen. he was so nice to her saying it's okay. >> the president attracted another crowd monday when he suddenly left the white house. he has never seen anything like this. bill, good morning. >> good morning. i was just minding my own business walking down pennsylvania avenue with a grilled cheese sandwich on my way back and suddenly there's a crowd coming at me. looked more like new york than d.c. then i saw secret service motioning people aside. yep, it was the president, out for a walk again. politicians sacrifice a lot to live in this exclusive piece of real estate. once they get in most are eager to find a way out of the bubble. >> i don't get a chance to take
8:07 am
walks very often. secret service gets a little stressed. every once in awhile i'm able to sneak off, you know. i'm sort of like the circus bear that breaks the chain. >> reporter: so chief of staff suggested and afternoon coffee break without telling the press or most of the staff. the commander and chief walked the block and a half to a nearby starbucks starbucks. he told a staffer, the bear is loose again. three weeks ago, he surprised sewerists on the national mall. choosing to walk rather than ride to a meeting. this washington d.c. little league team wasn't expecting the president, either. the roster includes jay carney's daughter. a fund-raiser to take pictures and toss the ball around. this president is hardly the first to get white house cabin fever. harry truman went out for a long
8:08 am
walk most mornings at a faster clip than the reporters. dwight eisenhower fled for the golf course when ever he could. ronald reagan slipped away at least once and complained the white house is like a guilded cage. >> i sometimes look out the window at pennsylvania avenue and wonder what it would be like to walk down the street to the drugstore and look at the magazines. i can't do that anymore. >> reporter: early in his presidency, bill clinton went for morning jogs. his habit of stopping for fast food prompted a parody on "saturday night live." >> i'm parched from the jog. >> sir we have only been jogging three blocks. >> she asked us not to let you in fast food places? >> they felt confined and look for ways to shed the motorcade. >> you got to give me a little space. >> usually, that means keeping
8:09 am
reporters at a distance. >> how's the coffee? >> tea. >> reporter: the president says look, there's no planned message in the impromptu outings, he just likes to take a walk. they like the message they think it sends that he's a regular guy. i should add, by the time i got back, that grilled cheese was cold. >> bill i have sat next to you many a times having lunch, i don't ever remember you having grilled cheese did it have truffles in it? >> i hope the president was drinking oprah chai. >> he did have tea. no question. when i asked if it was coffee he said tea. >> i'm going to vote oprah chai on that one. grilled cheese with truffles i i like how

8:17 am
>> reporter: the program is the brain child of this man whose 17-year-old son lars is autistic. he realized those with autism might lack the social skills recruiters are looking for, they process attributes high on their radar as well. intelligence and memory the ability to see patterns and attention to detail on repetitive tasks. >> if we could use skills like what i saw among people with autism in data analysis and quality control, that would be phenomenal. there's no reason why we should leave these people unemployed when they have so much talent and there's vacant jobs. >> reporter: an important part of leveraging the unique skills is creating a comfort zone. for example, employees with autism may suffer low self-esteem and feel stressed. the solution?
8:18 am
clearly stated goals. failing to get the water cooler talk or sarcasm can be helped by direct communication. jose heads up the autism at work program. >> we teach clarity in communications and try to understand put yourself in someone else's shoes. >> he recognizes it's important to train all employees for this new work force, not just those with autism. >> most importantly, they need to be aware this condition exists. it is in the best benefit of the company to bring people with these skills. >> we want to make sure you are successful. >> reporter: as he digs into his job, his as bergers is out in the open. he would rather showcase his talents. >> reporter: when you meet someone on the job, what is it they need to know about you? >> that i want to be able to

8:33 am
economy. people say it's getting better. what does it need to pick up a higher level of growth? what do we need for spurt in the global economy? >> that's the big issue. people don't just think it's growing, the economy is growing. the u.s. is especially growing. i think it's -- i can't think that growth is embedded but it's not growing fast enough to increase the amount of jobs. the federal reserve feels a burden to move it along. we have a situation where we have growth in the united states, but central bank policy in the united states and central bank policy around the world in japan and china and, of course in europe most recently is to be stimlative. all of that is very, you know is meant to take the market forward and increase gdp. >> people look at corporations in america and say they are sitting on a lot of cash. why aren't they spending that money on plants and new
8:34 am
employees? big trauma in the financial crisis. interest rates are very low. to be able to borrow money near zero and companies not to put money to work they get at 0% and think they can make a profit. >> why aren't they doing it? >> economics. you are dealing with setntiment. you try to advance it along. i think legislation is not a tool that is available. not going to be a lot of legislation in this country because of the divided congress. the federal reserve is left with the policy to carry. you are hosting the summit this week. what are you hoping to see to capitalize on the energy boom? >> a few things need to happen. we should recognize what a blessing that north america and the united states in particular has. all of us of our age, grew up
8:35 am
in a world where we took it for granted we were going to have to import energy from some of the most troubled places in the world. some of them have troubles because they have energy in the first place. now, all of a sudden we have a different view forward. if you want to think how it would change the world going forward, think how it might have been different if we didn't have the energy situation we had. think of what we had to do to secure the feelings the economy, the stresses and strains we have. going forward, we have a terrific situation going forward. we should recognize it. it's a gift that's going to have to be picked up. we have to meet it. regulation has to be clarified. very hard to go out and make big investments to take advantage of the shale energy if we don't know if it's always going to be there, what price it's going to be there, whether it's going to be exported or go and affect
8:36 am
subsidized u.s. manufacturing. there has to be clarity before people are willing to make investments with a five or ten year payback. >> america is increasing energy independence as a brighter spot in the u.s. economy. what is the biggest worry for you? what worries you? >> well, you know the people on both sides of this first of all, everybody is proenergy and pro-environment. it's not a question of everybody being right and everybody wrong, everybody is right. you have to reconcile the concerns. the country needs to grow economically. we need to have jobs. that's an impairtive and we need jobs and growth in a sustainable way so those interests have to be reconciled. >> charlie brought this up about the amount of cash american companies are sitting on, 1.5 trillion dollars, yet the unemployment rate trickled down but wages have not risen.
8:37 am
how do you deal with income and equality as the ceo of goldman sachs, what do you think of income and equality? >> well income and equality is a destabilizing thing in the country. it's responsible for the divisions in the country. the divisions could get wider. you can't legislate and deal with problems and drive growth and you can't drive the success of the country. it's a big issue and something that has to be dealt with. one of the ways of dealing with it is to make the pie grow and people are better at making the pie grow but i have to say, too much of the gdp over the last generation has gone to too few people. >> you want to have -- the economic system has to do two things. you have to grow a pie and distribute it in a proper way. both contribute to the stability of society. if you grow the pie, but too few
8:38 am
people enjoy the benefits and the fruit, you have an unstable society. >> people like tom and hillary clinton, they are making this danger of income and equality in the way the top 1% and what they represent continues. >> part of this listen yes, full stop. if there's a lever to pull and button to push you pull it and it would be pulled and pushed. people are trying to grapple with the reasons for it. for example, technology media, the new economy. if you do something really well the entire world beats a path to your door. the number three, number five number 400 player gets nothing. it's winner take all. jobs the world has been enriched by the fact that it's been flat and that manufacturing could go labor could go to the cheapest places. it's a one world barriers have
8:39 am
come down and con transcribe yupted to income and equality. if you win, you win big. if you lose you lose everything if you can't compete. >> there's a gap between the haves and have nots. you were not one of the popular kids. you sold peanuts and hot dogs. you know what people are going through. you remember those days. >> i grew up in brooklyn in the projects of course. there was tremendous -- i had tremendous opportunity. other people didn't find opportunity. >> this is the thing that i want people to know about lloyd blankfein. you are a good husband, a good father. >> the only reliable source. >> one of the top financial leaders in the country, which i think is ironic from someone who wen you applied to goldman you can't get the job. what do you do to keep people engaged at goldman sachs?
8:40 am
what makes you so great at what you do? >> one of the things is we have a great drawing power. get the smartest kids who come out of great schools and not so great schools but they are the top performing people. they are motivated, want to work well. if you get great input, you can get great output. the firm has great power. from that comes influence. it's influence of being able to draw people like the energy conference we are having today. we are going to have a conference of some of the most influential people on this issue. we have the finance ministers of mexico. again, a north american conference mexico -- >> and you have an intern traveling with you. what a lesson he's getting. >> yes, we have an intern. >> that tees not a bad job. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. ahead, the astronaut sending
