7:09 am

7:11 am
i think what a little bit disconcerting this could be a statesman moment for him. he has kind of gone the other direction and become very sort of dug in that this is other people's fault and he has no responsibility and we will see where it goes. >> how long can his opponents say we will still support the nominee? at some point can't someone say this is a little out of control? and we will support the nominee. does it surprise you? >> maybe it does to this point but it would surprise fee in a few weeks if this rhetoric didn't get tamped down. i talked to rubio over the weekend and he looks almost pained when he says, well, i will still support the nominee but it's getting harder every day. you can almost hear it in his voice. >> we have five states voting tomorrow. the likelihood trump will do very well and in ohio whether
7:12 am
if he wins big tomorrow night, what do you see the party does? >> i think the party has very few options. i think they have a lot of procedural options in the convention they would love to avoid. i think the scenario most in the party -- the official party would say if kasich continues to win ohio it continues to be muddled. as long as it's muddled they have the opportunity to continue to work the problem and to have sort of things coalesce in the other direction. but, look. if he wins by big margins tomorrow, he has all of that much more leverage in this. >> if he wins in florida, trump, and loses in ohio, what does that mean? >> it muddles things, i think if rubio -- >> as he said he will. >> as he said he probably would and i think definitely would. do kasich and cruz continue to split the remaining vote. trump's support is very, very firm. trump's support does not seem to dip throughout these things but the question it doesn't grow. >> does all of this violence
7:13 am
or does it at some point call people to say -- >> i think it's calling a lot of people to say that. i don't think these are the hard-core trump supporters that gotten him to this point and propel him to the nomination if the numbers keep sustaining itself like this. the big problem for trump this is a reaching out period. this is the time to bring the party together and reach out to swing voters and he is going in the opposite direction. again, it could help him get the nomination with his base but as long as cruz and rubio and ksich are splitting everything else, he's in a pretty solid position. >> so far, the violence does not appear to be affecting his campaign. >> it doesn't. i think it really does dig people in on his behalf and that helps to some degree. i don't know if this is a calculation. although it seems very much to be in character for him not to be backing down at all and i think that is part of the appeal that has brought him here. >> thank you, mark. more than 17 million americans this morning face a severe weather threat. storm systems are targeting the

7:34 am
it was very important to the board, you know, i knew that some of them didn't properly represent the organization, but it was very important to the board to make sure we knew exactly what the facts were. so we engaged independent advisers to conduct a review, and based on the totality of information, based on our own experiences, and based on the review that we did, as a board, we felt it was best for the organization to make a change in the leadership. >> what -- >> how did organization know this? why was it necessary for journalism to come in and point out something obvious to the wounded warriors projects? >> a lot of the allegations raised were actually not accurate. the review confirmed that 80% of donations did go to programs. it also confirmed that of the 26
7:35 am
spent on staff conferences, 94% or almost 24.5 million of that actually went to direct programming for wounded warriors and their families. so a lot of the things that were raised were not accurate. it did uncover some opportunities for us to strengthen some policies, to strengthen some controls around expenses, so we will do that. we also felt that there were certain judgment decisions that could have been made better, which is why we ultimately decided that a change should be made. >> anthony, just to be specific, i know you say that number. we say only 60% spent on veterans and you're saying 80%. your number includes direct mailers meant to educate the public. is that really investing in our veterans, including the cost for mailers? >> well, raising awareness is a very important part of our mission. it has always been an important part of our mission. i think it's what connects the
7:36 am
men and women who are coming back. there's a great need out there. wounded warrior project is here to fill that need. they fill that need for me when i was injured in 2004, you get help from a lot of places, from family, from friends. the nonprofit organization that was there for me was wounded warrior project. >> anthony, i know. you lost your arm and wounded warrior project has done so many wonderful things for veterans. there is no doubt about that. but i think the concern that was raised, first by cbs news and our executive producers. our executive producer talked with people. people tried to raise concerns that they were not listened to or that they were fired. is that culture an issue? >> ultimately, everything you
7:37 am
into our decision. so as part of our independent review, our advisers also interviewed many current and former employees and other key state and current and former board members, and there were a variety of factors that ended up playing into our decision. and we're very comfortable and confident in our decision and that this is the right thing to do for the organization. now we are going to get the focus solely back on serving our wounded warriors and their caregivers and their family. >> no question during your investigation, you learned some things too that led you to believe, houston, we have a problem here. so what exactly did you find, anthony, and how did it get so off track, do you think? >> i wouldn't say that it got severely off track. whenever you do the type of review that we did, any organization is going to find something. so we did, as i mentioned, we
7:38 am
strengthen policies around travel and expenses, and strengthen control so that we can make sure that those policies are being -- >> it is said you're looking for new leadership and it may come from the military ranks? >> i put together a committee to conduct a search for the next ceo. and, absolutely, you know, we are going to consider, you know, any and all candidates that we think will be the best fit for this organization, and we will, you know, keep moving this organization forward and serving the needs for years to come because the thing about those who have been wounded is they are going to be living, in many cases, with these injuries for 10, 20, 30 years. and wounded warrior project needs to be there to serve them. our services are truly needed. >> they are.

someone told me long ago >> we are getting our first look at the national weather service two powerful new super calm computers. the national oceananic and
7:44 am
>> good morning to you. the identical super computers are housed in virginia and florida and they can calculate a combined 5.78 quadrillion calculations per second which is four times more than the old system. the national weather service hopes the upgrade puts the u.s. on par with europe which has dominated the world of forecasting technology. >> oh, my god! the truck is sinking! >> reporter: last fall, flooding from hurricane joaquin in the south, and this winter's monster blizzard in the northeast, were predicted early and accurately by the upgraded computer. longer lead time gave people a chance to prepare. >> we know forecasts save lives. >> reporter: louie is the director of the national weather service. >> as we get closer to an event we can make the forecast with greater resolution and more accuracy, so people can see where specifically the storms will affect. >> reporter: it is one half of
7:45 am
their forecasting system. trill i don't know those of observations are gathered from weather balloons, satellite, and buoys, among other things. the super computers then run models based off that data to protect the weather. the american model noticed they miscalculated the path of superstorm sandy in 2012. the hurricane killed nearly 150 people and caused an estimated $68 billion of damage. >> sandy was certainly a turning point in the entire enterprise. it really brought attention to the super computing capacity that we had prior to sandy versus what other others centers around the world had. >> reporter: five days before the storm, the european model correctly predicted that sandy would slam into the new jersey shore line. severe weather exert with our new york station wcbs-tv lonnie quinn showed us how the predictions vary. >> this green line is european model forecast and a week away from landfall. >> reporter: the american show a decidedly different path.
7:46 am
that. remember the european model's track and how the storm actually performed. it went farther out to sea but took a hard left hand bank. the landfall between the european and actual landfall maybe a 50-mile difference or so. >> reporter: an employee at the national weather service tweeted out an apology for overestimate ago snowstorm that turned out to be a bust. >> so many people looked at the forecast yesterday and thought head for the hills. >> i've never seen an issued apology for anyone associated from the national weather service. >> reporter: the agency believes the new system will also help forecasters get a better handle on short-term daily predictions and not just big weather events. >> we are going to see a wealth of information coming at is over the next year which lends me confidence that we will be producing better forecasts. >> reporter: so the good news is all of the new systems should be up and running by july, just in time for hurricane season. >> it's great it's working. i saw a guy in louisiana said

may come this it is monday, march 14th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including the angry protests dogging donald trump's campaign. we will look at the clashes in
8:00 am
weekend's trouble. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. about halfway through the journey the train derailed sending dozens across the coaches in the middle of the night. >> kasich's crowd will be much smaller and optimistic but trump is bracing for stormy days ahead. >> no evidence that sanders sent his supporters to that trump rally or any other event. >> so far the violence does not appear to be affecting his campaign. >> i think it digs people in on his behalf. >> so much flooding here you can't tell where one bayou starts and another one ends. >> cbs news in northern iraq quoting two sources reporting kurdish peshmerga forces have captured an isis fighter this morning. >> what they described was lavish spending and a toxic culture. >> part of that did factor into
8:01 am
>> i saw a guy in louisiana who said, listen, you can prepare, prepare, but mother nature always bats last and this time, she hit a home run. good to be prepared. >> an analysis of this past weekend's primary victory shows that bernie sanders spent 48 cents per vote. it would have been a dollar, but he had a coupon! i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. amtrak passenger train derailment overnight sent more than two dozen people to the hospital. the accident happened overnight near the city of cimarron. 29 people were hurt. two of them critically. more than a hundred were on board. the amtrak southwest chief was heading towards chicago. we spoke with passenger selena rios who was on the way to wichita with her mother when the train derailed. rios describes how she escaped. >> we had to climb out of the top, which would be the side,
8:02 am
had to walk across that and get to one of the other cars and drop down and walk through that. and then i was finally able to get out. >> both rios and her mother have head injuries. five states will hold primary elections tomorrow that could shift the presidential race. hillary clinton leads bernie sanders in the democratic delegate count by more than 600 this morning. without super delegates her advantage drops to over 200. clinton says she is not a natural policy lerkstician and has a hard time getting her point across. she talked about that last night in a town hall. >> a lot of the work goes into a campaign and a lot of demands that you are faced with in a campaign, i think, are challenging, and i have worked at it, tried to get better at it, but i'm much better when i actually have a job to do,
8:03 am
>> both clinton and sanders called the recent violence at donald trump rallies unacceptable. an interesting way to put it. >> exactly. she said that -- she said my husband and the president are much better at politics. >> than she is, yeah. trump is rejecting any responsibility for this weekend's disruptive protests. he postponed a rally in chicago friday night after huge crowds of demonstrators showed up. they clashed violently with trump supporters. >> the democrat candidates blame trump's rhetoric for inciting the violence. trump said he longs for the old days where he could punch protesters in the face and they would, quote, be carried out on a stretcher. he called for them to be thrown out. last month, donald trump told supporters to knock the crap out of anybody about to knock the crap out of tomatoes. >> reporter: pictures tell the story tonight and ugly story. near pandemonium at a trump rally in chicago.
8:04 am
american democracy in action and we are seeing total chaos. >> the scenes for the first time the number of protesters equaled that of trump supporters. >> so much anger in the country. i mean, it's just anger. i don't know what it's directed at but directed at what is going on for years. >> one of the people arrested as well was a cbs news reporter. >> back off! >> never seen anything like last night. that was unprecedented. at least one police officer made multiple, he pulled me down from the back of my hoodie and threw me to the ground and bashed my face into the street. >> they are talking about how well we handled it! and they are talking about the fact that nobody got hurt. >> donald trump is a pathological liar. >> responsibility begins and ends at the top. >> the damage, i think, last night are part of a broader problem in america. our politics have about him like the common sections of --
8:05 am
front-runner republican national politics. and, tonight, in chicago, it really turned into playing with fire. >> the ugly rhetoric from donald trump is not only wrong, but dangerous. if you play with matches, you could start a fire. you can't control. >> tensions are high and security concerns even higher at donald trump rallies today in ohio. a protester attempted to rush the stage. cell phone video from the rally outside dayton shows security hauling the protester away. >> isis-related or could be isis-related. certainly he is not in love with our country, that, i can tell you. >> no ties for isis to this map. video is that it's a hoax. >> was it a hoax of him dragging the flag? looks like the same man to me. >> the toxic environment has allowed his supporters and see sometimes confrontation come together in violence. >> when you talked about these
8:06 am
and take our country back from these people. who are the "these people" in that case? >> i see people in the audience i don't think have a great future and disrupters and not have a love for our country. >> oh, boy. republican strategist and cbs news contributor frank luntz is here. frank, good you're here. this is so disturbing to watch and i think enough blame to go around for everybody. the protesters should be able to protest and donald trump should be able to hear from those who want to hear from them. how did we get here? >> because of the lack of respect and the uproar has bubbled over. look. you can be angry. . we know 70% of americans are angry and doesn't give you the right to shut somebody down and get physical with people. if i could wave a magic wand i would have all six candidates
8:07 am
primary, make a commitment no violence, no destruction, no -- and a respect for freedom of speech. >> frank, so fashion donald trump has not done that. in fact, he says he doesn't condone for the violence but he says i will pay for your legal bill. >> i needs to. >> he needs to pay for their legal bills? >> no. he needs to make a commitment -- this is beyond the pale and this is unacceptable. when you actually encourage people to act in an aggressive way, then you know it's gone too far. the problem i have with all of this is that this is going to set the tone for events to go forward. we don't have an end point here. we had this conversation six months ago and, again, three months ago. and when we had this conversation, it was all about, well, maybe i'm overestimating the problem. i think i'm underestimating it. if we don't do somebody about it, it's going to get worse. >> somebody get hurt or killed. >> exactly. >> i don't tell i don't think you need a magic wand. one candidate who is not
8:08 am
party. is there a discussion within the republican party, the leadership, including the chairman reince priebus and other thoughtful leaders in the policy about taking a stand on violence? >> they need to. i don't know if there has been a discussion but it has to happen. by the way, it should have happened on saturday. it should have happened right after. the second point here -- >> i'm thinking about like the moment that nikki haley had after the confederate flag and the shooting in south carolina. take down the flag in south carolina. is there someone with great respect in the republican party has a great impact? >> be the hero here. >> so much chaos within the republican party right now. no leader. it's hard to find an elder statesman. normally, it would have been john mccain or mitt romney. we see what happened when they entered the fray and there was
8:09 am
>> people saying we have to stop this and can't do this and it may be out of control. the question is whether one person or several persons do it. i mean, somebody has to talk to donald trump and his supporters. also, we need to know who the protesters are and why they are there and understand what is going on. >> but the other part of this is that they were trying to get as many tickets as they could to prevent people who really wanted to hear donald trump speak. >> who was? >> the protesters. this is part of the move on dot org strategy is deny people who want to hear him. >> they should be able to hear him. i get it. >> encouraging people to go to a trump rally. i've been doing this 25 years and unlike anything i've seen. >> how is that? >> people attending their first political rally and people had given up on politics and are now actually thinking that something can happen. it is more boisterous and more passionate, and it's -- it's different from anything i've seen. >> but you have a candidate who say i'm not whipping up the
8:10 am
bites that show quite the opposite. what do you do when the candidate, himself, doesn't say i'm encouraging people? >> you put pressure on the candidate to say this is the line, do not cross it and he has not done that as of this point. >> does it scare you? >> more than you can imagine. because i know the trajectory of this and that's why i wanted to do this segment, because it's going to get worse. >> thank you, frank. >> you know donald trump. you talk to him. thank you, frank luntz. good to see you.

8:43 am
