7:03 am
are waiting for president obama to speak from the white house. he will announce that two al qaeda hostages an american and an italian, were killed in a raid in january. >> the american is identified as dr. warren weinstein, he was captured by al qaeda in 2011. bill plante is at the white house and has detailed. bill, good morning, what do we expect to hear from the president? >> reporter: norah we expect the president to express sorrow and possibly an apology over the killing of these two americans. one, of course, is not a friend to the united states, he was a member of al qaeda. but the killing of dr. weinstein is particularly difficult because the intensive search that's gone on all the efforts that have been put in to find him over the years. also killed was an italian hostage, giovanni loporto. in that same raid in january, an american by the name of achmed farouk was killed in that the.
7:04 am
he was an al qaeda leader. another american was killed days later. his name adam gadham. and also an american who had gone over to work for al qaeda. the white house statement which was issued earlier expresses deep sorrow and regret. no words can fully express our regret over this terrible tragedy. the president will say that he takes full responsibility but this is one of those things which classified now is being unclassified because the white house tells us the president believes the american public has the right to know. >> but, bill to be clear, this is the first-known instance in which the u.s. has accidentally killed a hostage in a drone strike, right? >> that's right. and the fact that it's being revealed probably has a lot to do with the understanding that it would come out sooner or later anyway. >> bill plante at the white house. we'll switch over to david martin at the pentagon. david, i know you have some
7:05 am
details on what exactly happened here in january because this would seem to be a rather extraordinary acknowledgment. >> reporter: well we're talking about two drone strikes, both of them conducted by the cia in the afghanistan/pakistan area. and three americans ended up being killed. one, the hostage, dr. warren weinstein, and then two americans who were working for al qaeda. and the u.s. has killed -- deliberately killed americans who were working for terrorist groups before but in this case neither of those americans working for al qaeda were actually targeted. so these were all people who were killed by mistake and i think other than the immediate tragedy of inadvertently killing an american and italian hostage, you've got the real problem here
7:06 am
of questioning the viability going forward of these cia drone strikes if the intelligence is so unreliable that you end up killing two hostages and two american-born terrorists that you didn't know were there. >> in fact, that's the point isn't it? they said they had no reason to believe that they were there. >> that's right. and, you know this controversy about how many people innocent people are being killed by these drone strikes in the pakistan border areas has been going on for years now and outside critics have claimed that hubs of innocent civilians are being killed the government has always claimed that there are just a very small number of innocents killed in these attacks, but here we have evidence that would certainly
7:07 am
suggest that people not intended to be killed by these strikes are being killed. >> all right, david martin at the pentagon. david, thank you. we are still waiting for president obama to speak from the white house briefing room. we will bring you the president's remarks live in a cbs news special report. this morning, five of the six baltimore police officers involved in the arrest of freddie gray have offered statements about what happened. the 25-year-old apparently suffered a major spine injury while in custody. he died a week later. demonstrators in baltimore continue pressing for answers. chip reid is outside the police station where protests escalated last night. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. you know we've been telling you all week thaez thatt these daily protests have been peaceful but for a moment last night it looked like that might change. a large number of protesters on this side of the police barricade started to shove it down the street. police officers lined up shoulder to shoulder lined up on this side of the barricade and started pushing back. >> you guys killed that man.
7:08 am
>> reporter: a peaceful demonstration turned ugly for a few tense minutes as protesters and police faced off at a barricade. plastic bottles were thrown and protest yourself hurled insults at police. they were incense bid the head of baltimore's fraternal order of police who likened them to a lynch mob. at a press conference wednesday, gene ryan tried to walk back that comment but said calling the police officers murderers went too far. >> maybe i should reword that. i don't want it to turn into a lynch mob because when you're trying to put somebody in jail before the facts are in the investigation hasn't been completed, that's wrong. >> reporter: pastor charles neil and others were angered by those comments. >> we're not a lynch mob. we're concerned citizens. we're concerned about justice in our communities. >> reporter: the now-daily protests were triggered by this video showing 25-year-old freddie gray being carried to a police van, his legs dragging on the ground. within 30 minutes he stopped breathing. on sunday he died of what police
7:09 am
admit was a significant injury to his spine. police commissioner anthony bass spoke with cbs baltimore station wjz. >> to an extent we're responsible for the pain in this community where we thought we were doing god's work going out trying to make communities safer, we've made mass arrests, we've locked people up, we've taken people to jail in numbers. we've obliterated this community. we have to own that. >> reporter: while some protesters lashed out at police our cameras captured members of the baltimore police department consoling people in the crowd. >> things will change. it takes time. nothing comes overnight. >> reporter: many here say this will not stop until that change comes. >> we are going to stand out here every single day if we have to until justice be done. >> reporter: no one was injured in last night's confrontation and many people in the crowd here told me that it is crucial that these protests remain peaceful because if they do turn violent it will be easy for
7:10 am
their critics to describe them as a mob. norah? >> chip, thank you so much. cbs news has learned a 2009 investigation into tulsa county reserve deputy robert bates reveals he received questionable training. the 73-year-old pleaded not guilty to a manslaughter charge tuesday. he says he shot and killed eric harris during a sting operation by accident. concerns about bates led to an internal investigation by the sheriff's office in 2009. bates reportedly drove his personal car during training and he made traffic stops on his own before he was allowed. when confronted, bates allegedly said anyone with issues should go see the sheriff. the investigation concluded policy had been violated and bates received special treatment. sheriff's family rm lawyer-- the sheriff said he believed he received proper training. the lawyer for the family said "it is our belief that eric harris would be alive today if the tulsa sheriff's office had not broken the rules to put a

crony on the streets." the penalty phase of dzhokhar tsarnaev's continue this is morning after an emotional day of testimony from survivors. the defense elaborated on a profane gesture the convicted boston marathon bomber made the a holding cell from 2013. john dahler is in boston with the video never before seen until yesterday. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. prosecutors portrayed that gesture as representative of tsarnaev's callous, even hate-filled nature. but the defense tried to imply that that was just the antics of a typical teen. for the first time wednesday, jurors saw video of a still-bandaged dzhokhar tsarnaev in a holding cell three months after the bombings. the then 19-year-old can be seen pacing peering into the lens and primping his hair in front of the camera before he flashes the middle finger. as tsarnaev sat in the courtroom, victims,s,ding a former dance instructor shared what he took from them.
7:12 am
this is a cbs news special report. president obama is about to make a statement from the white house. it concerns a counterterrorism raid on al qaeda fighters in january. here is the president. >> this morning i want to express our grief and condolences to the families of two hostages. one american dr. warren weinstein, and an italian, jovani la porto who were tragically killed in a u.s. operation. they were aid workers in pakistan devoted to improving the lives of the pakistani people. after warren was abducted by al
7:13 am
qaeda in 201 1rks i1, i directed my national security team to do everything possible to find him and bring him home safely to his family. and dedicated professionals across our government worked tire lszlyless tirelessly to do so. we also worked with our italian allies. since 9/11 our counterterrorism efforts have prevented terrorists attacks and saved innocent lives. both here in america and around the world. and that determination to protect innocent life only makes the loss of these two men especially painful for all of us. based on information and intel intelligence we have obtained we believe a u.s. counterterrorism operation targeting an al qaeda compound in the afghanistan/pakistan border region accidentally killed warren and giovanni this
7:14 am
past january. yesterday i spoke with warren's wife elaine and the prime minister of italy. as a husband and father, i cannot begin to imagine the anxious anguish that the families are enduring. there are no words, there is nothing that i can ever say or do to ease their heartache. and today i simply want to say this. as president and as commander in chief, i take full responsibility for all our counterterrorism operations including the one that inadvertently took the lives of warp and warren and giovanni. i profoundly regret what happened. on behalf of the united states government, i offer our deep he is poll isest apologies to the families. as soon as we determine the cause their deaths i directed the existence of the operation be declassified and disclosed
7:15 am
publicly. i did so because the weinstein and la porto families deserve it know the truth. and i did so because everybody as certain aspects of our national security efforts have to remain secret in order to succeed, the united states is a democracy committed to openness in good times and in bad. our initial assessment indicates that this operation was fully consistent with the guidelines under which we conduct counterterrorism efforts in the region which has been our foe ask us for years because it is the home of al qaeda's leadership. and based on the intelligenceask us for years because it is the home of al qaeda's leadership. and based on the intelligence that we obtained at the time including hundreds of hours of surveillance. we believe that had this was an al qaeda compound, that no civilians were present, and that capturing these terrorists was not possible. and we do believe that the operation did take out dangerous members of al qaeda. what we did that know tragically is that al qaeda was hiding the
7:16 am
presence of warren and giovanni in this same compound. it is a cruel and bitter truth that in the fog of war generally and our fight against terrorists specifically mistakes sometimes deadly mistakes can occur. but one of the things that sets america apart from many other nations, one of the things that makes us exceptional, is our willingness to confront squarely our imperfections and to learn from our mistakes. already i've directed a full review of what happened. we will identify the lessons that can be learned from this tragedy, and any changes that should be made. we will do our utmost to ensure that it is not repeated. and we will continue to do everything we can to prevent the loss of innocent lives. not just innocent americans, but all innocent lives in our
7:17 am
counterterrorism operations. today we join their families and friends in honoring warren and giovanni. two humanitarians who came from different countries but who were united by a spirit of service. for decades warren lived the ideals from our country serving with the peace corps and later with the united states agency for international development. he devoted his life to people across africa and south asia. he was a loving husband, father and grandfather who willingly left the comforts of home to help the people of pakistan. at the time of his abduction, he was a u.s. aid contractor helping those escape poverty and give a better life to their children. giovanni's humanitarianism also took him around the world to the central african republic to haiti and ultimately pakistan. like warren he fell in love with pakistan and its people and
7:18 am
believed passionately that he could make a difference in their lives. giovanni's service reflected the commitment of the italian people our great allies and friends friends. and today is a reminder of the bonds of friendship between our country and the shared values that bind americans abz ss and italians together. there could be no starker contrast between these two selfless men and their al qaeda captors. warren's work benefited people across faiths. meanwhile al qaeda boasted to the world that it held warren citing his jewish faith. al qaeda held both men for years even as als warren's deteriorated. they deprived these men with fresh issues years with family who his them terribly.
7:19 am
i pray that these two families will find some small measure of solace in knowing that warren and giovanni's legacy will endure. their service will be remembered by the pakistani men, women and children whose lives they touched and made better. their spirit will live on in the love of their families who are in our thoughts and prayers today. especially warren's wife elaine their daughters, alisha and jennifer, and their families. and the shining example of these two men will stand as a light to people the world over who see suffering and answer with compassion, who see hatred and offer their love who see war and work for peace. may god bless these two brave men and may he watch over and comfort their families for all the years to come. >> president obama at the white house saying again a mistake had been made in a counterterrorism
7:20 am
operation killing two innocent hostages, one american and one italian. the president clearly showing great emotion about this mistake and ordering a full review and release and declassification of everything about the operation. >> i mean this is the first known time that is u.s. drone has killed hostages and was extraordinary to hear the president say that there had been hundreds of hours of surveillance and yet they did not know that these hostages were inside that al qaeda compound. clearly the president is pledging transparency and future disclosure about these particular drone attacks. >> drone strikes have already been a great subject of discussion in washington and elsewhere. the president did say that al qaeda members were killed in the attack but he at contribute puttributed the deaths in part to fog of war. >> our coverage will continue online throughout the day on our digital network. just go to for those of you in the west,

i'm brian vickers, nascar® driver. i'm kevin nealon comedian. and i'm arnold palmer, professional golfer. know what we have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. me, when i had a blood clot in my leg that could have traveled to my lungs. that's why i took xarelto®, too. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. i took xarelto® for afib... an irregular heartbeat that can lead to a stroke from a blood clot. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game.
7:24 am
tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is
7:25 am
no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost.

good morning. a pair of accidents in santa clara is really grinding down traffic on northbound 101 just trying to get out of san jose. you can see the backups right around capitol expressway and the two wrecks were approaching montague expressway both of which are now on the right-hand shoulder. bay bridge also very slow and go. you can see the metering lights on slow mode as you head to the pay gates. they were switched on at 5:36 and it stacked up east of the maze. the eastshore freeway is particularly bad. if you are heading to the richmond/san rafael bridge, from the east bay this is what it looks like at the toll plaza. slow from richmond parkway. that is "kcbs traffic." here's roberta. good morning, everyone. currently we have lots of cloud cover across the bay area but we have sunshine in the mount vaca area. wide range of temperatures in the 40s in santa rosa to the 50s in san jose, san francisco and livermore. later today, numbers 50s, 60s to the mid-70s. cloud cover on friday
7:29 am
7:30 am
as president and commander-in-chief i take full responsibility for all of our counterterrorism operations including the one that inadvertently took the lives of giovanni and warren. i pro foundly regret what happened. on behalf of the united states government, i offer our deepest apologies to the families. president obama minutes ago apologizing for a u.s. drone strike that killed two al qaeda hostage, including one american. welcome back to cbs "this morning." we want to go to david martin at the pentagon. he has more information ant the deadly attack. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. we're talking about two drone strikes, one occurred on january 14 and the other occurred on january 19.
7:31 am
and between those two attacks, both the american aid worker dr. weinstein and the italian aid worker were killed along with two american members of al qaeda, a man named achmed farouk and another named adam gadahn. and most extraordinarily, the statement put out by the white house says that obviously they did not know that the hostages were there but also it says neither of those american members of al qaeda were specifically targeted and we did not have information indicating their presence at the sites of these operations. so all of these people were killed by mistake. despite the fact, as the president said in his statement, there had been hundreds of thundershowers of surveillance of these targets. and that is how these drone
7:32 am
strikes are supposed to work. you establish what's called a pattern of life in these compounds and to make sure you know what's going on in those compounds before you conduct a strike. so, for instance if you see food being carried into one building in that compound you don't clear that compound for a strike until you know who's in that building to whom the food is being taken. requiring investigation and i think call into question how this drone program, which has been going on now for so long
7:33 am
since the bush administration is going to survive a mistake like this. >> all right. >> thank you, david. >> thank you, david. cbs news national security analyst juan zarate is in washington. you heard the president say that how extraordinary, though is to hear the president acknowledge these mistake, take responsibility and say he will have them disclosed? >> i think it's an important part of the disclosures. and it is remarkable that the president would do this. these kinds of strikes are often shrouded in secrecy. certainly the targets often not known to the american public. and certainly the presidented a meting a mistake like this is pretty remarkable. but as david mentioned, i think this is now going to gomentfoment a review of the targeted strikes. the president already put in place stricter standards.
7:34 am
that obviously didn't work here. so i think the president will take another look at the targeted strike programs in places like pakistan and afghanistan. keep in mind these are programs that are continuing. i think a reminder here is that these are strikes that are happening even though they don't reach the headlines until you have an announce the like this. and this inchmplicates not just pakistan, but venues like yemen, north africa and east africa. so this has implications well beyond this particular incident. >> may well put the drone attack attacks at risk? >> it could put greater restrictions on both the evidence that goes in to picking particular targets as well as the protocols for what goes in to place. and it will stoke yet again the debate about who should be running these programs. should it be the cia, should it be the military and what standards are applied more stringently. and of course you'll hear more from countries that are
7:35 am
affected. pakistan has frequently objected at least in public about these types of strikes. so you may see some diplomatic ripple effects. >> and it also puts the hostage policy under review, sdwdoes it not is this weinstein's family was very critical. they said we hope this finally prompts the u.s. government to take its responsibilities seriously. something we've heard before. >> you're absolutely right. and this feeds into the hostage policy review of the white house that already announced in the wake of the syrian hostage crises. and i think it will raise the question as to whether or not not the only is the government doing enough to communicate with families, are they doing enough to find where the hostages are and to protect their lives. and in this case obviously as the president has announced, the u.s. government didn't know the hostages were there. they had identified these locations as critical al qaeda safe houses, and operational zones, and that's why they took
7:36 am
the strike. but clearly the families of the hostages are not going to be happy and it will further fuel the debate around our hostage policy review. >> and, juan again the president acknowledging hundreds of hours of surveillance and yet they didn't know who was inside. will that raise questions about our intelligence gathering? >> it will. it will ask the question do we have enough on the ground presence in addition to eyes in the sky. and the question is how much information is enough. do we have to have 100% surety or some level of ambiguity okay in a program like this. and i think that balance between risk on the side of action and risk on the side of inaction will come to the fore yet again. >> juan thank you so much. we go back to the white house in the next half hour for continuing coverage of the breaking story. time to show you some of the other headlines this morning. charlotte observer says david petraeus will plead guilty today to sharing government secrets

8:46 am
you're vaccinated. >> what kind of vaccine? >> this will be good news for gayle king that and all kids. >> right. and the beauty of not having needles is you don't have biohazardous waste, it doesn't need to be refrigerated. you can distribute it to places like africa where you can vaccinate people quickly or places where parents have children with skittish -- children who are skittish because of needles. and they've used it it for the flu. >> and this thing about cooking. what is this? >> yeah. so when we first saw this we thought, do we really need a smart frying pan, something with the brains to think and communicate. and then we realized it's actually a neat solution to a widespread problem. this started with a college student who had no idea how to cook. >> roy's the widespread problem? >> well, people don't know how to cook. so these guys got together and made a pan that can actually walk you through that process
8:47 am
and teach you the basics. it's called pantelligent. we're going to give you a demonstration. you can pick a recipe. >> so you're turning the pan on or turning it up through your phone. >> the pan is on the heat now and it's got heat sensors in the bottom that measure the temp and it communicates via bluetooth with this smartphone. so the as a matter of fact phone can read what the pan's doing. i chose the recipe fried eggs and we're scrolling down. it tells you ingredients you need and things to remember. we're going to start cooking. we'll do it overmedium. >> not over easy? >> we'll do it over medium. then it reads the pan is here. >> let's crack the egg. >> well, you know i imagine there's other -- i kind of worry
8:48 am
if people don't know how to make an egg -- >> well and really -- >> i do too. >> i mean, you know i'm not great cook and i'm married to a chef but i know how to make eggs. >> it's telling you good. it will tell you -- there's voice activation which will tell you if you want it to. we turned off the voice. and we'll tell you the pan is too hot. first we're going to turn this off so we don't create a fire hazard. you're going to see the temperature and it's telling you, a reminder don't forget to put oil in the pan. >> yeah there's definitely oil in the pan. >> it will key you. >> so the pan has a wi-fi signal. so it's telling you the temperature of the pan. >> it will read you and it will prom you for each step. >> does it tell you what else to do? >> it will make you more familiar with cooking. you're more prone to use whole foods aunt don't run to get takeout. >> i think it's only a problem that affects people in new york.
