would have a profoundly negative impact on the disploepcy and kerry argued that congress is fully brief and should give him room to negotiate. >> we have been in full discussion of congress with this. we've been in full discussion with allies in the region. we have had our team go to israel or meet with israelis in washington or elsewhere to brief them regularly in this process. this isn't a complete mystery. >> kerry said progress has been made on limiting iran's nuclear technology. now a major challenge is convincing hard liners in iran to allow access to nuclear sights and military bases and to persuade them to slow down research and venom. the challenge for the u.s. is to get all those assurances and convince congress to back off. >> margaret thank you very much. this morning israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu is

8:03 am
hear what i was hearing. when did you realize you had the recording and when did you take it to the recording? >> we actually interviewed bob durst two times. the first was for about three days back in 2010 and we were surprised that he made a whole bunch of admissions and said things that were kind of shocking and we thought we would go back to them again at some point. we went back to them again a couple of years later to show him this new evidence to show him what we had discovered and we ended the interview and he react and said good-bye and we thought that was the end. the microphone kept recording. we always leave it on and he knows that. he went to the bathroom with the microphone still on and recordinging. it wasn't until months later that the editor was listening to material we left behind and we thought we have to listen to everything we even got, we have to finish the series and we discovered eded the shock that we
8:04 am
had it. >> you said two years. >> months. after sitting down with him, we thought, we gheevt sort of revelation which is he was unable to determine which of the two handwritings we were showing him was his own. in fact we thif both were his own. after that he got up. it wasn't until many months later -- >> is this the guy walk around talking to himself? >> he does. he does it in the series. there's moments when he's walking past his brother's house on the west side of manhattan he's talking openly it's ridiculous, just ridiculous. >> even though there's no one with him. >> yeah. and he said in his testimony in galveston when he was yornl nalley tried for murder of his neighbor. he said quite openly for long periods he spoke openly to himself and groups of people. he would upset people and they would say are you talking to me.
8:05 am
he said i would have long conversations with me perly loud and people would get upset and i would have to apologize. so he's aware of that. >> so he's aware of that, that he killed them all. >> i think that's what he says and i have no reason not to believe the case. what's amazing to me is he came to us knowing what he knew about his life. we didn't know that. all we could do is assume some bad things happened. we weren't sure what. he called me at the time my film is coming out. he said i've heard about this movie, i'd look to come and see it. >> against the advice of his attorney which now suggests you were in coordination with the authorities that he was arrested on saturday and your big finale was on sunday that it was a big plan between you and the authorities. >> the truth is we hoped he would be arrested as soon as possible and we were sort of amazed ourselves that he hadn't be been arrested for so long,
8:06 am
