team up in scotland, which george thompson was part of, and they were trying to pick holes in the prosecution case, and there were plenty of holes, while jessica, down in london, mounted an investigation into who really did it. >> what did she find that is new. >> well, what she found, i have to be very careful because it's very confidential. but she was able to trace two sources who live in a mediterranean country, one of whom went to a meeting, which took place in malt a. and the meeting was a coordinating meeting between various radical groups. hezbollah was one of them. and the popular front for the liberation of palestine, syria and iran, and there may have been one or two others too. now, this person described the meeting, which is essentially these groups trying to -- they wanted to coordinate better and share resources better. >> this was a group that got together terrorist groups, and some of these were strange bed fellows, and you have people working together that wouldn't seem to normally be people that work together. >> they were rejectionists, and they were bitterly o

-schneider, a professor at george maich university. every president since george washington used the recess power to make appointments, thursday's ruling is described as a blow to the president's power. is it? >> it is in one sense. it depends on basically the balance of power - who controls the white house, and who controls the senate, and whether they are the same party, this is a decision written by justice steven briar who, was a lawyer with the senate before becoming a judge. he, in the opinion, gave the president some fairly broad powers to make recess appointments. basically the president can do it if there's a vacancy that needs to be filled, and the recess is long enough. the caveat is that the senate can effectively start the clock over on the length of a recess, by sending someone this every couple of days to gavel the senate into a session, and closing a few minutes later without doing any work. now it doesn't have a lot of significance in the sense that the president is a democrat, and they control the senate. this could be a different story as soon as november if, as ex

to in the sense that if you recall, the george w. bush administration demanded after 9/11 that the taliban cough up osama bin laden, dismantle al-qaeda training camps. the taliban then governing afghanistan refused to do so. i do think it was necessary for us to demonstrate that any nation harboring, providing sanctuary to terrorists who are in tent on attacking us needed to be taught a lesson. they need to make clear to the world that that was unacceptable. what doesn't follow is that we needed to stay in afghanistan for now well over a decade, trying to create a stable political order. that has turned out to be a task that we can't handle. >> president obama spoke out about the war in afghanistan a week ago. i'd like to play part of what he said and get your reaction. >> i do think it's important for americans to recognize that we still have young men and women in harm's way object along with coalition partners who are continue to go make sacrifices and we need to say this job all the way through? >> the question is what would seeing the job through mean there in afghanistan? wha
