12:02 pm
we begin with rising tensions in west virginia. 100,000 people haven't had clean tap water since thursday. that's when a chemical used to wash coal leaked into water supply. the governor set to hold a news conference the next hour. elena, is there any indication the governor will give people a time line of when the water ban is lifted? >> reporter: fredricka, that is the big unknown. the governor tells us chemicals in the water supply are going down. that's good news. they are likely saying it will take several days before they can lift this water ban. residents here as you can imagine are anxious for things
12:03 pm
to get back to normal. we want to show you video we shot a short while ago from a chili's restaurant that opened for the first time since thursday. that's when the leak was discovered and the ban put into effect. we took time to talk to a woman who lives in this area and was at the chili's restaurant enjoying her first prepared meal, a meal that wasn't micro waved since thursday. here is what she said about her concerns once this water ban is lifted. take a listen. >> i think that it's going to take some time, but i would probably wait and test myself. i could still smell it before i could trust i could use it. >> even if they lift the ban a few days. >> i will probably wait a few days maybe to a week to actually consume it. >> reporter: fredricka, i think it's safe to say there will ab few days for things to get back to normal here just from the
12:04 pm
perspective of the residents of those apprehensive. >> i wonder, elena, is something said to the residents about the potential impact of this leak, what might happen or what might people experience if they did consume a lot of that contaminated water before it was banned to do so? >> that's the other unknown in this story. we don't know how long it will go. health risks are also unknown. it's causing anxiety. dozens of people have been to emergency rooms, not because they are experiencing symptoms but worried about exposure. >> thanks so much. the news conference we'll be taking that from the governor. big news out of iran. just over a week from today, iran will start getting rid of its uranium stockpile. that's according to the white house will says iran will also
12:05 pm
dismantle infrastructure that makes higher level uranium enrichment possible. it's part of the deal that was first announced in november. in exchange some sanctions will be eased. president obama calls it a big deal saying this, quote, with today's agreement we have made concrete progress. i welcome this important step forward. we will now focus on the critical work of pursuing a comprehensive resolution that addresses our concerns over iran's nuclear program, end quote. after months of backlash over nsa spying program the president expected to outline new reforms. edward snowden leaked about the program, since then around the world people demanded changes. president obama -- >> reporter: a worldwide uproar over nsa spying, president obama will unveil how he'll keep his
12:06 pm
promise to reform government surveillance programs. >> we may have to refine this further to give people confidence. i'm going to work hard on doing that. we have to provide more confidence to the international community. >> we can find better balance and mass surveillance. >> the president suffered months of blowbacks edward snowden's revelations last summer the nsa collecting personal phone records on every american and spying on world leaders including allies like angela m. he's called in tech experts. >> many from house and senate that cover ideological spectrum who urged him to throttle back the collection of metadata on a bulk level. i hope he listens. >> reporter: he's deciding whether to accept recommendations from independent review that include storing personal data with a third
12:07 pm
party, possibly phone companies, and require government to get approval from a judge for access. a direct advocate representing americans rights when those decisions made, spying on foreign leaders get high-level approval. >> many countries, having a higher level process to look through that and don't do it just because there's an opportunity to do it. >> balancing security and privacy is a tricky political question. critics are bound to be unsatisfied. >> we can continue to refer to ourselves as a quote, unquote, free country when the united states government is collecting information on virtually every telephone call made in america, getting into people's e-mails, focusing on the websites people are vitting. >> before he left for his two-week vacation in december, the president said he'd make a, quote, pretty definitive statement bow how he'd like to change the agency to make americans feel for comfortable. as you know politically the most
12:08 pm
controversial piece is domestic spying on civilians. but going about changing some of the programs will take congressional approval. look for fireworks on capitol hill in the coming months. >> thank you so much for that. it's going to be another cold week along the east coast, but not as cold as it has been lately. the west coast will get more rain. meanwhile this weekend storms and high winds slammed the south to the degree of knocking down this construction site and making people pretty worried about their safety. >> i saw my neighbor's patio furniture flying across the parking lot so i went and waited. >> last week i had to wear scarf, gloves, quite a difference. >> difference indeed. we'll have a detailed weather forecast later in the hour. onto texas, an anonymous
12:09 pm
bidder paid $350,000 for a permit to kill an endangered black rhino. the controversial auction has been criticized by wildlife advocates and even children. >> if people are really interested in conservation and keeping them alive, why don't they use money or wealth in more productive ways than killing a rhino. it just doesn't make sense. >> they shouldn't be doing rhino poaching period. doing it here is better how? >> i don't know why they are doing it. maybe they are doing it for a few pictures with the rhino laying down dead. >> despite the protest the dallas safari club went ahead anyway. they said the money will be donated to help save the threatened species. ben carter, executive director of the dallas safari club joining me now over the phone.
12:10 pm
ben, perhaps you hear the sentiments of protesters young and old, they are asking how is it conservation means killing an animal first. >> we just raised the most money that's ever been raised at one time for black rhino conservation. we're extremely happy and proud of the money we've raised. we know an effort now that will help increase black rhino population to this auction. >> to what extent and all $350,000 raised is going toward conservation? to what extent do you believe this conservation effort will help assist the black rhino. >> that's an easy answer, because namibia is a small country with 2.5 million people. they don't have the resources it takes to manage and do a lot of the things they need to do to make sure they can protect the black rhino.
12:11 pm
i will say namibia has one of the best records for protecting black rhino. they had very few poached over the last number of years. but wildlife takes money to be managed and to flourish. this has been what scientists and biologists have told us is the best way to increase the black rhino population. >> going straight to the trust fund earmarked exclusively for black rhino conservation, anti-poaching measures, habitat studies, relocations, things they need to do to make sure the black rhino population thrives. >> what can you tell us about the highest bidder? i know anonymous but what can you tell us about that person, thattentity, what their motivation has been. >> you know what, it's all for conservation. in talking to person that bought it, they want to make sure we
12:12 pm
raised as much money as we could to again make sure we helped increase this black rhino population. >> you do understand why people are having a hard time understanding how conservation, this effort of conservation equates to killing of rhino, whether it's an aged one that doesn't add to the population, you know, is not able to help reproduce or not. help people understand how it is killing a member of an endangered species, 1700 black rhino in namibia and killing one could advance the population as a whole. >> scientists and biologists tell us what is the best way to help increase the black rhino population. what we did, this auction is what they say is the best way to raise money to help increase black rhino population. this program was developed and is approved and supported by three of the highest and most well respected bodies of science
12:13 pm
for wildlife in the world. you've got u.s. fish and wildlife supporting this. those people, that's all they focus on is wildlife management. i think the biggest problem we have is that a lot of people just don't get the facts and don't understand them because they don't know about it. generally speaking as we have told the story of how this works and where the money is going, most people understand that. they get it. they see what we're doing. it makes sense if you have this much money at one time, make them flourish and increase the black ryan okay population, it makes sense. >> what do you say to the critics, people who say this is just an excuse to help a hunter make a huge trophy kill, period. >> it's not. we have an auction here that raised money that's going to go strictly for conservation of the
12:14 pm
black rhino and help increase that population. >> ben carter, executive director of the dallas safari club, thanks for your time. >> thank you. coming up later, he was one of the president's top advisers. now he's slamming barack obama in a tell-all book. also next, a former nba player who was in north korea with dennis rodman talking about his trip. hear his shocking takeaway. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer.

12:21 pm
absurd. >> sports diplomats or something else. the debate continues over the group's purpose, a trip not sanctioned by washington or nba. while american kenneth bae's safety remains uncertain. >> you know, there's a lot that happened on that trip above and beyond playing a match. i'm only sharing with you my experiences good, bad, or indifferent. i don't know in the foreseeable future but i believe there are going to be positive outcomes from this. there are already positive outcomes from this this. we accomplished a relationship on the sports side in north korea. where it goes from there, i do not know. >> victor blackwell, cnn, atlanta. so did this effort at forced diplomacy go out-of-bounds. charles smith painted the trip as a success. yesterday i asked hamll of fame

a big political week in new jersey. governor chris christie will face more strut any over the bridge closing skanld candal as vote on subpoena powers and more fallout from former secretary of defense robert gates who questions the commitment of the commander in chief. >> as i write in this book, there was this absence of passion, absence of a conviction of the importance of success that disturbed me. >> he was talking specifically
12:26 pm
about the afghanistan war and the commitment toward it. cnn's chief political correspondent candy crowley with me now. candy, how much of a disruption is this book for the president now looking at a crumbling iraq as he also tries to get his domestic agenda on track? >> it certainly does take headlines. we had senator john mccain on today saying iraq is the way it is because he did lack that commitment. the president did lack that commitment. his whole agenda was get out of these wars, get out of these wars. people have pushed that forward saying we have to be really careful in afghanistan. i think the domestic agenda is the domestic agenda and right now it's about long-term unemployment insurance for jobless. it will begin over how many trips remain in afghanistan and how many will be remote. i think this plays a part. i think politically the president is focused on domestic
12:27 pm
issues. >> governor chris christie, he's in damage control over that bridge closure, will have lots of investigations on local and federal level. how nervous should christie or his staffers be about thursday's vote on extending sapp powubpoe powers. >> if he was telling the truth, we have no reason to believe he didn't, if he's telling the truth, main thing he has to fear is how long this goes on. it's a headline grabbing situation. the assembly in his state of new jersey will continue to look into it. it sucks the oxygen from everything christie would like to do in his state and nationally. his staffers are more worried about the legal aspect, assuming the truth is chris christie knew nothing about it. his staffers had something to worry about, laws were broken here. they don't want anything that points to some kind of lawsuit
12:28 pm
or any kind of charges being leveled against him. i think the question with chris christie is at that moment we're really unsure where this story is going to take us. it's a point john mccain made to me. >> i think he stated very clearly he should have known. i think he stated very clearly and openly and honestly. that's why he has to answer every single question. is this a blow to him? obviously. how permanent it is, i think we will know in the days and weeks ahead. >> so basically when you look at chris christie's political future, a term we often use, fred, you will know, that is to be determined. we'll just have to see how this plays out for christie, fred. >> candy crowley, thanks so much. >> thanks, fred. >> also coming up a-rod says he's going to court to fight his suspension. what are his chances? our legal experts weigh in. next, all those products to

12:47 pm
has he the dishonorable name for the longest suspension in history, 162 games, benching him for an entire season, potentially ending the 38-year-old's career. this after the chief arbitrator reduced 211 game suspension and imposed on rodriguez for allegedly using performance enhancing krugs. rodriguez releasing a statement saying the number of games sadly comes as no surprise as the deck has been stacked against me from day one. i have been clear that i did not use performance enhancing substances. in order to prove it, i will take this fight to the to do court. >> my advice to alex rodriguez would be the same advice i gave lance armstrong years ago. just fess up. >> major league baseball wanted the initial suspension to stand. while we believe the original 211 game suspension was appropriate, we respect the decision rendered by the panel and will focus on our continuing efforts on eliminating
12:48 pm
performance enhancing substances from our game. >> i banged the table and kicked a briefcase and slammed out of the room. >> reporter: rodriguez went to arbitration after mlb imposed 211 game suspension but quickly became frustrated by the process. he spoke out on sports radio after he stormed out of a hearing last november, upset after learning baseball's commissioner bud selig would not testify about allegations mlb used unethical tactics investigating rodriguez. >> i exploded, upset. i probably overreacted. it came from the heart. this has been a difficult process. >> players were suspended after mlb found they had used peds obtained from the defunct biogenesis clinic in florida, all suspended 50 games except milwaukee brewers ryan braun received a 65-game ban. some, not all, saying rodriguez punishment was justified.
12:49 pm
>> how do you hand out 162 ban to one person and not give anything to all these other people doing the same thing. yeah, i guess it is, if you talk about just a-rod, it's too harsh. >> i think he deserves it. i don't think there should be doping in baseball. america's pastime. >> frank thomas inducted into baseball's hall of fame called the rodriguez suspension a sad day for the sport. >> what are some of your thoughts about everything that's going on with alex rodriguez. >> i've said for years, many years, things spiraled out of control in the late '90s, 2000 era. it's sad because alex was such a great talent. >> will rodriguez get to keep playing while he appeals the suspension? his attorneys will ask a federal judge for an injunction to allow rodriguez to continue swinging the bat while he fights to clear his name. rodriguez stands to but this is not just about
12:50 pm
money, he says this is about fair play and this is about the loss of his tep ratireputation. >> cnn new york. >> and a new interview with his key witness may hurt a-rod's fight. anthony bosch gave a stunning interview to 60 minutes. >> once he was fully under your protocol what were the various banned substances that he was taking. >> testosterone and growth factor one. human growth hormone and different forps ms of pep tides? >> all of them banned. >> all of them banned. >> and he knew that? >> yes.
12:51 pm
>> and you knew that? >> yes. you injected him? >> personally. >> i'm joined by turns now. well, this is pretty tough. for a-rod to perhaps counter. but, this is the kind of thing that has beeen swirling around the investigation. he says he is going to take this to federal court. how does he do that? >> he says he is going to appeal. he has a very small chance, almost none of winning this. players and owners agree in the bargaining agreement that this is how we will resolve our
12:52 pm
differences. even if the suspension will not be as harsh? major league baseball won't be able to go -- it is on both side s. >> if this were to go to federal court? that wouldn't go well? >> no, it couldn't. a-rod has said in the past that this information is here say. >> what is so interesting about what antybosch said is that he actually injected a-rod. >> what about the mlb and paying him? for the next year he won't be playing. after that he has two years left
12:53 pm
