7:13 am
taking a political risk or thought i was doing something special but, folks, i was just answering in a straightforward, direct way what i've known my whole life. >> it is great to be back with the other hrc. >> reporter: earlier, hillary clinton gave a rousing speech to the group of prominent activists and donors but neither she nor biden mentioned one another but, stet instead, took aim at the gop field. >> most of them are still running for president, i think. >> ben carson says that marriage equality is what caused the fall of the roman empire. >> reporter: clinton declined the keynote address to appear on sanel. >> -- "saturday night live." >> you are easy to talk to. >> oh, thanks. that is the first time i've ever heard that. >> reporter: her "snl" appearance comes as she struggles to appear authentic which in part created the opening for the vice president.

7:15 am
september. trump is still ahead in spite of the drop. he has 21% support. carly fiorina is second with 16%. trump also holds a five-point advantage in iowa and his nearest rival is ben carson with 19%. in afghanistan investigators are still not vur why a hospital in the city of kunduz was bombed. doctors without borders blames the u.s.-led military for the air strikes. 22 people were killed. the chief calls it unexcusable and possibly even criminal. mark phillips is tracking this story from london. >> reporter: good morning. the damage done to the hospital was catastrophic. the damage done to the reputation of the u.s. air campaign in support of the government in kabul, is in pr terms, catastrophic as well. the question is no longer whether the msf hospital in kunduz was hit by air strikes and almost certainly u.s. air strikes. the question is how and why.
7:16 am
doctors without borders which has run the hospital says both the government in kabul and the united states knew where it was and that the air raid continued even after they raised the alarm that the facility was being hit. the afghan government line, taliban fighters were inside and shooting from the hospital. msf's uk director vickie hawkins says is a line. >> the comments coming from the afghan government are outrageous and they are just as defying the destruction of a fully functioning hospital. >> reporter: u.s. secretary of defense ash carter has promised an investigation. >> that we be full, transparent about our investigation and, also, that we hold accountable if there is someone to be accountable, anybody responsible for doing something they shouldn't have done. >> reporter: but that is not good enough for msf. >> we would like an independent
7:17 am
investigation, and only then will we be in a position to make decisions about the future. >> reporter: the most credible current theory is that u.s. special forces advising afghan forces who were then retaking kunduz from the taliban called in the air strike after taking fire from the area around the hospital. but this is an issue that goes beyond afghanistan. it comes at a time when the u.s. has been accusing russia of imprecise targeting in syria and that makes this attack even more difficult to explain and to justify. >> mark, thank you. reports from syria this morning say isis destroyed another ancient ruin in the city of palmera. the arch was nearly 2,000 years old and one of the city's best-known land makers. in spain new york, the secretary of defense accused russia of escalating the syrian civil war. holly phillips, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the government here in turkey says a russian war plane,
7:18 am
operating our syria, violated turkish air space, prompting it to scramble f-16 fighter jets. that news comes as russia continues its air strikes in syria. the russian defense ministry released this cockpit video which it claims shows its fighter jet hitting isis positions in syria, including a command center, a training camp, and an ammunition depot. but many of the locations that russia said it hit are in areas where there is no isis presence. the u.s. and its coalition partners say what russia is really doing in syria is propping up the syrian regime by launching strikes on those who oppose the government. the syrian president bashar al assad makes no distinction between the moderate position and isis, describing all of
7:19 am
them's terrorists. in his first interest since moscow began launching air strikes he says the campaign take to succeed or the entire region faces destruction. but the u.s. says peace in syria can only be achieved if assad leaves office. the four-year long syrian civil war has now claimed more than 225,000 lives. many of them killed by the regime's i ndiscriminate bombings. president assad claimed in that interview that u.s. air strikes in syria have been counterproductive and have actually helped spread terrorism. >> holly williams in foiturkey, thank you. a dentist is gunned down in her parking garage and new how the search has

something previous. maybe not related to any of this. >> what a mystery, indeed. the kennedy family does not usually want to talk about its secrets in public, but this morning, senator ted kennedy's youngest son is revealing them. former rhode island congressman patrick kennedy writes of his own mental illness and addictions and looks at his parents and problems with alcohol and depression. he believes his father suffered from post-traumatic stress after two of his brothers were assassinated. he spoke with lesley stahl for last night's "60 minutes." >> because you said nobody talked about this you were like zombies. you used that word, zombies. >> we were living in a limbo land where all of this chaos, this emotional turmoil was happening, and we were expected just to live through it. >> reporter: this is the first time a kennedy has been this
7:34 am
open about the family's secret, these particular secrets. are you worried about how the family is going to react? >> i know how some of them are going to react because i've already got. >> reporter: have they seen the book? >> yeah, i showed them the book. >> reporter: they are not pleased? >> no. >> reporter: they are angry? >> they are angry. >> patrick kennedy's new memoir is "a common struggle." welcome to studio 57. >> thanks, charlie. >> some say an act of courage for you to do this and you understood some people in the family prefer these things not be said. where were you motivated to say this? >> well, we are at a point in time in american history where we are finally coming out of the shadows for those of you suffering from mental illness and addiction and it's absolutely crucial to change public policy. look at the tragedies in umpqua. look at all of the other tragedies, all of them are a result of a failed mental health system. why is that allowed to continue? because we are all silent about these issues.
7:35 am
how many people could have said that that shooter needed to get treatment or stay in treatment? nobody. because no one talks about these issues, charlie. how many of the other shooters should have been brought into treatment and made to stay in treatment? because they had a severe mental illness. no one said a word, charlie. there are consequences. we have 41,000 overdoses a year. we have nearly 42,000 suicides a year. this is a public health epidemic, and i'm telling my story. it's just a small story, in light of what most families face and that is you know someone in your family is suffering from alcohol addiction. you don't say a word. you know they have had psychosis but that is their personal issue. that is why i told this story so that others could tell their story. >> the irony is that your father was suffering and had made
7:36 am
health care his primalegislativl and yet did not seek treatment. >> charlie, he came from a different generation, no offense. it was just not spoken of in his generation and it's tough for my generation to even break the silence, but we have to because i want to make sure for my children, and i'm having another child in about, you know, a couple of weeks. that they don't have to grow up with this fear that someone can talk to them if they have an issue. >> i applaud you for talking about this so let's talk about your own family's scenario. you write in the book your dad ted kennedy was probably an alcoholic. you confronted him and what did he do? >> well, he didn't want to talk about it. that's the common struggle. all of us want to talk about this with our families. our families don't want to talk about it. that is universal, norah. there is few exceptions, but mine was not an exception. we were part of the rule. >> your father took you to chappaquiddick where he crashed a car and a young woman died in that car. when he took you there, was he
7:37 am
even able to admit then what had happened? >> it was upon an anniversary and he really didn't want to talk about it, but he knew he had to say something. and what he said was very little. and that was the message i got is that we shouldn't talk about it. >> i want to talk about this. you talk about so openly and honestly in this book sort of the shame and the silence surrounding this. you open the book with 2006 the episode you're in your mustang convertible and you crash it on capitol hill. he had no idea you were so out of it. >> no. i was out of it on so many levels. >> you were on -- >> i had been to rehab five months before for opiad addiction andself medicated with other drug and alcohol after that. i thought i was okay. that is the delusion of this illness. >> you say -- you woke up in the morning and you were worried you might have killed someone. after you realized it was just a car crash, your father called you and you write in the book your father said i saw a picture of the car and i don't know where ythey are making such a
7:38 am
big deal of this. it looked to me like it was july a little fender bender. >> it was a physically seeking a little fender bender, but it didn't speak to the larger truth. the matter was i was in crisis and i needed to deal with it in a way that wasn't sufficient to my earlier treatment. >> so when you came out publicly and admitted everything, i mean, that day, that next day admitted you're dixs, your father didn't want to talk to you, right? he was angry at you? >> yeah. he didn't feel good about me talking about my issues because it reflected poorly on everyone else. >> it's not you and your father. what i found interesting you bring your mother into this conversation. there is an episode you talk about where she is so high in a terry cloth robe and dignitaries are walking in and out of the house. what is the hardest revelation from this book their family has had to dealt with and what has hurt them the most? >> i think all of had is hurtful because it's the shame we don't want to discuss. that is the bottom line. so what i talk about is what we all know, but we don't say anything about.
7:39 am
and so when you do say something about it, it ends up being hurtful. and i don't know what is more hurtful, because there is hurt in keeping this secret. it eats away at you. it will kill you if you don't talk about it. in fact, we say therapy is about speaking about the things that are post-traumatic stress. if you don't talk about it, you're in trouble. and my dad was in trouble because he was never given an opportunity to talk about the brutal murder of his two brothers. it's shocking to think that no one went up to him and said, ted, you suffered incomprehensible pain. if we went through what he went through today, he would have had a battery of mental health officials say, ted, listen. no one would have held it against him. in fact, they would have celebrated it. but he came from a different time. >> right. >> and he paid the price for it. >> we thank you so much for your candid answers, congressman kennedy. thank you. we will hear more of your story
7:40 am

neil de grasse tyson, welcome become. >> thanks. >> this movie gets the science right? >> it gets enough of the science right so that where it doesn't get it right, you give them some space to do so that they can help tell their whole story. >> it's fine that they got it right? >> a couple of things you might not have noticed. it was subtle but they were sinking deep and occasions where matt damon, the lead character, he drops things to the ground and it actually falls to the ground more slowly because gravity on mars is only 40% to edge of that. they could just ignored and i might have given it to them. they are filming in a studio somewhere and it would be hard to have that and would have given it to them if they couldn't but they figured out how to film that. a couple of other things. for example, matt damon is lifting these heavy, heavy tanks. he is physically fit in the movie and they make sure you know that with a couple of -- there is always an abshot,
8:15 am
right? >> don't knock the abshot. >> you have to put in the abshot. i'm okay with that but he is lifting these heavy things and you might think it's he is physically fit but if it's 80-pound tank it weighs 280 in mars. i applaud that effort. a duststorm kicks up and it terrorizes their spaceship but the mars's atmosphere is less than 1% of our atmosphere. it picks up light dust and that is why they exaggerated the impact of a duststorm on mars. give that to them. we know mars has duststorms and it picks up many tornadoes that were showed persistently throughout the film. i'm a fan of mark twain. first, get your facts straight
8:16 am
and then distort them at your leisure. >> no one pretended they were you and now they pretend it's you. what struck you, aside from that sandstorm as something they really got wrong? >> no what they got on wrong, they did their homework on other things to get right to have earned -- i don't think of it as wrong. i think of it let's be loosey-goosey here so the story could be told in a more fun and intriguing way. for example, they have the jet propulsion labs in pasadena, california, share control over a man's mission along with houston. no, that doesn't happen. they are purely, purely space probes at jpl but it enabled two nasa centers to have this conversation. you have these sort of it's a geek culture. you have the mathematician and the engineer all trying to solve

problems. one of my favorite aspects of the film was that science is its own character, in a sense, in this film, because of the drama, the suspense, the emotions, the pride, envy, all of the normal characteristics we think of human dynamics all happen through the lens of science. >> last week's nasa announced there was flowing water on mars. same time this movie is coming out. the significance of that? >> we have always known there was water on the surface through the dry meandering river beds and river dry delt deltas and flood planes. where is the water today? is it underground? is it frozen? if it's anyplace liquid it's useful to know because nasa has a branch of what they call nirsu. if you know there is water on the destination planet, you don't have to bring any with you
8:18 am
and that greatly improves your -- or reduces the launch -- >> does it increase the likelihood there is some kind of life there? >> that is clearly the next question everyone is asking. one of nasa's mantra is following the water. it follows us to the search for life. if you got liquid waurter oozin out the side of a crater wall of mars you want to go digging in there. >> if there is life, what does that mean? life, one of the great secrets that biologists don't share with you behind closed doors is that in spite of this diversity in life in the world we have dna in common so, in fact, we are a sample of one. can you really understand your subject if you're dealing with a sample of one? that is why the beginning of every biology book, what is life? is it this? does it require sun life or just energy or require liquid water or jaw liquid? you can't answer those kinds of deep questions until you have another example of life.
