krusinski, head of sexual assault prevention with the air force, now charged with groping a woman. and the army sergeant at ft. hood, in charge of sexual assault prevention, under investigation for assault and prostitution. then there are the numbers, which senator barbara boxer says proves the traditional chain of military command cannot handle the problem. >> 90% of people abused are not reporting it. anyone who tells you it should stay in the chain of command should understand it's in the chain of command and it's an utter failure. >> reporter: boxer spoke at a press conference along with former air force sergeant jennifer norris, a rape victim who says low-ranking service members cannot get justice. >> the system is rigged against the victims. commanders who are responsible for the resolution of these cases are far too often biased

7:10 am
>> is it possible they may overplay their hand and somehow squander what they think is opportunity? >> reporter: in politics, that's always possible, and a huge concern that republican leaders have on capitol hill. they don't want rank and file members to lob charges that can't be substantiated by the facts. every investigation has a fact pattern, when you stick with facts, you can win political argument, the white house believes the greatest ally are republicans who overreach and they'll try to exploit that to the maximum when they can. >> one question, the white house worries this will preempt everything else. take the attention off immigration reform and a whole lot of other issues. >> reporter: immigration for a second, charlie. i talked to republicans, people at the white house and democrats. the immigration seems completely untouched, and moving on its own momentum. and a moment yaum that republicans and democrats largely share. the senate looking toward a vote
7:11 am
next month. 65, 70 votes on immigration. that will put pressure on house republicans to move that forward. it won't be slowed by immigration scandal. republicans don't believe a grand bargain is possible with this white house. the base won't accept, won't tolerate a deal with a press that willingly or unwillingly oversaw an irs that dealt with base groups as aggressively as the irs did, and that diminished the possibility of a grand bargain. >> what about the concern that the woman who directed the irs unit that deals with tax exempt organizations and targeting these conservative groups is also in charge of the irs? of obama care and enforcing obama care? >> that's right. sarah hall ingram is her name. i asked several officials, is that a position she will retain going forward? it has policy implications and
7:12 am
political implications, and republicans will shift the irs question, not just from past practices, which the president calls inforgivable, but what the irs will do with the implementation of the health care law. this woman, sarah hall ingram, there in the very position of implementing the irs supervision and gathering of fees or taxes under obama care is there, she will be a political target for republicans, and a juice ooh one at that. the government temporarily ross track of former terrorists allowed into the witness protection program. the justice department inspector general says the d.o.j., department of justice, failed to provide names for the no-fly list and some were allowed to travel on commercial flights. the problem has been nfixed, bu says a small but significant number made it through.

yes, i lied. it was a sin. i've committed many sins. have i displeased you, you feckless thug? 3.8 million new jobs, that wasn't good. bailed out mexico, increased foreign trade. 30 million new acres of land for conservation. put mendoza on the bench. we're not fighting a war. i've raised three children. that's not enough to buy me out of the doghouse? >> that famous scene from "west wing." if you're a person of faith, there may be times when you felt angry at god. if you've ever reached the point of wanting to yell at a higher power, there's a reverend who says that's okay. he serves in the episcopal church and the author of "how to pray when you're, shall we say, "p'ed" at god. good morning. >> good morning. >> why do you say that when you're angry at god, that that's
8:42 am
the time to pray? >> well, because it's important to treat that relationship with the divine like we would with any relationship, when we'd want to be honest. we'd want to be able to put our cards up on the table. we'd want to be able to be truthful with the people that we love. and if we are in a relationship with god, it's important not to pray around our anger but to pray through it. to be honest about it because if we really do, as we saw there in that scene from "west wing," if we believe in omnition to god, we might as well say them out loud. >> so prayer is a conversation with god. >> if done right. if it's done wrong, it's holy words we throw at god and hope it gives us some sort of magic that keeps us out of trouble. too often we know that especially when you're liberal or conservative, if you have the belief that if you pray enough, no bad things will happen to you, and then something bad happens to you, that's often when it comes crashing down the
8:43 am
most. >> and when you think about things happening, this is so timely when you think about newtown, when you think about boston, aurora, texas, there's a very long list. and people always say god doesn't give you more than you can handle. god needed another angel in heaven. you call that bumper sticker religion. >> bumper sticker theology is the kind of thing i hear back from especially from women i hear so often for people who bought the book and told me what it meant to them because they felt that anger starting to build up when they were in the receiving line at a child's funeral and people were trying to order the world for them. they were trying to tell them oh, this makes sense. you can handle this. or this wouldn't be happening to you. well, you know, they say, i can't handle this. and so it shouldn't be happening to me. >> people who say that haven't been through it, you say. >> exactly. often that's all about the person who's saying it, not the person who's receiving it. it's about trying to make them feel better, not trying to make the person who's going through that grief have some relief. >> but you say anger can be a
8:44 am
good thing because just the title of your book, you don't expect to see those words along with the word of god. but you say anger can be good, and we should use that. >> well, in regard to the title, so many people have said that to me when i was doing rotations as the chaplain intern in hospitals, and they would just say, i'm just too pissed at god to pray. that's really why i love that title. well, then this is how to do it when you are. and yes, anger can be virtuous. anger can be good. if it's done in proportion. if it's done with the right spirit. if we didn't have the appropriate amount of anger, we never would have had the civil rights movement. we wouldn't have any -- we wouldn't be banding together to save the school that's at the end of the street. that's the kind of indignation that produces something positive and constructive anger is good. >> thank you. >> thank you so much for having me. a loud invasion is about to overwhelm the east coast. billions of cicadas will crawl out of the ground. jim axelrod shows us what all the noise is about.
8:45 am
>> so see if you can find one of those cicadas, and if you find one, point to it and let us know. >> reporter: these preschoolers in short hills, new jersey, are getting their first glimpse at one of the marvels of nature. >> i see a lot of holes. ooh, you found one. >> reporter: like clockwork, the cicadas who belong to a scientist called brood 2 are digging their way out. when are we going to have a cicada explosion? >> well, give it a couple of weeks. so this is a cicada hole, and there is a cicada nymph. >> reporter: john cooley is a researcher at the university of connecticut. he's studied the life cycle of sid cade das for 20 years. >> when they come out, they come out in massive numbers. >> reporter: what is triggering that? >> well, they are counting the seasons because they're down underground feeding on the roots and counting the number of times. then when you get to the right
8:46 am
spring, they're monitoring soil temperature. when it hits that 64 or so degrees fahrenheit, out they come. >> reporter: the eastern united states is the only place in the world with a 17-year cicada cycle occurs. an estimated 1 million cicadas per acre will blanket the region from north carolina to connecticut. once the cicada nymph sheds its outer skin, it morphs into an adult with big red eyes, a black body and a two-inch wingspan. the rest of its four to six-week life is devoted to finding a mate and making babies. which is where all the racket comes in. a chorus of males singing to attract females can reach 90 decibels, as loud as a lawn mower. that's due to their hollow abdomen that amplify their love song. >> so the male is calling. and then about one-third of a second after he starts that, the female clicks her wings.
8:47 am
just like that. it's a little, quiet sound. and a little movement. >> reporter: in a couple of months, the buzzing will be gone. and the next time these little ones hear it, they'll be 20 something. for "cbs this morning," jim axelrod, short hills, new jersey. >> the things you can learn on this show, boys and girls. >> enjoy your cheerios. >> enjoy your eggs and bacon this morning, those cicadas. >> now you know. >> women are louder than men, apparently, in the cicada world. >> and this happens every 17 years. >> there are some cicadas in between then, too. i hear them. >> you know more about cicadas than i do. >> how do you say it? >> cicadas. >> southern accent. >> cicadas. we'll look back at a busy week next on "cbs this morning." week coming up on "cbs this morning." for our families... our neighbors... and our communities... america's beverage companies have created...

good morning. no big hot spots on any major freeways. here's a live look at the nimitz, better than normal now on northbound 880. there is a little bottleneck towards high street but southbound is quiet all the way down into hayward. otherwise, over at the bay bridge things have thinned out nicely backed up to the middle of the parking lot, probably five minutes to get on the bay bridge. they still have the metering lights on, however, so a little busy up the incline and towards 880/237. we have brake lights now leaving milpitas heading towards sunnyvale. 11 minutes between 880 and 101. westbound 580 up over the altamont pass is definitely "friday light" and still a little sluggish on 80 through berkeley. have a great weekend.
