tv   The Lead With Jake Tapper  CNN  July 31, 2013 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT

1:00 pm
stronger than expected earns report last week action and success in mobile advertising. thank you so much for being with me today. i'm brooke baldwin in atlanta, now we turn things over to my colleague, jake tapper "the lead" starts right now. it's not just big brother watching you. if low-level analysts have easy access to your data it's little maybe even baby brother. i'm jake tapper. this is "the lead." the national lead perhaps the most invasive n system a spying program exposed yes. key store, e-mail content facebook, i.m. chats all compiled into a easily searchal database at the nsa. is it being used on you? how much coffee do you give your kids to help them get through the busy day? what about so-called energy
1:01 pm
drinks? and remember when everyone in hollywood was adopting children from foreign countries, that trend is so -- the status symbol is owning your own spy satellite. wait until you hear what george clooney is doing with his. good afternoon, everyone. welcome to "the lead. we have been told over and over again that the nsa is not tracking americans online or looking at the contents of our e-mails without a warrant, but guess what? they totally can do it anyway, if they want to. using more information from stranded nsa contractor edward snowden. the report claims that nsa has a program caused key score. it's not supposed to be used domestically on americans, but the guardian says it could be without any prior warrant necessary, your private correspondent, political views,
1:02 pm
health records, all of it could be in a database. the news broke as top intelligence officials were grilled today about why they need such programs to keep us safe. >> the phone records of all of us in this room reside in an nsa database. strong words this morning as members of the senate judiciary committee trying to understand just how the national security agency could know so much about private citizens and still go unchecked. based on a secret interpretation of the statute that does not authorize this kind of bulk collection. so what's going to be next?
1:03 pm
when is enough enough? >> just ten minutes price -- glenn greenwald of "the guardian" broke another story, this one with the catchy headline nsa tool collects nearly everything a user does on the internet. it's called "keyscore." it's a program used by the nsa to collect all internet activity everything they can collect, store it, and allow their low-level analysts with access to terminals to search what it is they want and fit out what your e-mails say, what google search terms you entered, and pretty much anything else you do on the internet. it's an all-purpose buying device. >> keyscore it seems may be the type of tool director of national intelligence james tapper tried to rub away during the testimony in march.
1:04 pm
>> if you could get me a yes or no answer to the question, does the nsa collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not wittingly. that as clasher later admitted is not true. >> lying to the senate is as much of a crime as anything that summer snowden is doing, so we ought to think about whether we're comfortable with our officials breaking the law, not being prosecuted and not lose their job. >> clapper's office today released its own set of stunning documents. among them a previously classified congressional briefing paper outlining the p.a.t.r.i.o.t. act provision allowing for an early warning system involving logging all domestic e-mails and phone conversations of americans, with this attempted assurance, only a tiny fraction of such records are ever viewed by nsa
1:05 pm
intelligence analysts. but -- and here's where greenwald's story today is important -- the question is not whether they're viewed as an official policy but whether they can be. snowden told greenwald yes. >> i sitting at my desk certainly this the authorities to wiretap anyone. >> though members and supporters of the u.s. national security apparatus disputed that. >> there's no question but that edward snowden has been completely vindicated by the documents and by the disclosures as a completely honest whistle-blower one of the most significant whistle blowers in american history. >> who doublechecked mr. snowden. >> there are checks at multiple levels levels. >> it obviously failed. >> in this case i think we can say they failed, but we don't know where. >>. the statement, arbitrary and unconstrained is false.
1:06 pm
nsa's activities are focused and specifically deployed against and only against legitimate targets in response to requirements that our leaders need for information to probably our nation and its interests. >> just a moment ago we showed you -- member ron wyden and the director of national intelligence in that clapper said the nsa was not wittingly collecting information. he later admitted that that was the, quot, least untruthful answer he could give at the time. i'm joined by the senator from oregon. >> thank you for having me jake. >> i know there's only so much you can say about the "the guardian" story or the keystone, but broadly, that they're swept up and who knows what happens to it do you think as a member of the senate intelligence committee, privy to this information, do you think there
quote quote quote
1:07 pm
are enough rules to prevent anyone without a warrant from accessing this information? >> jake here's what i can tell you specifically because i can't get into "the guardian's" story, i can tell you last december during the debate you specifically spoke on the floor of is the united states senate about what is really cad the back-door search loophole of the act, and that's a loophole that allows for the examination of phone calls and e-mails on americans without a want form that's somebody that i believe needs to be closed and apropos of your conversation, i think this is a unique time in our constitutional history. i don't think we should let this time go by without striking a better balance between security and liberty. you seem to be suggesting there are not constraints or
quote quote
1:08 pm
safeguards on the information we now know about. >> i particularly believe that the bulk collection of hundreds of mill yonts of phone call records on law-abiding americans is a very substantial invasion of privacy. you basically have been for example, if you know that someone called a psychiatrist twice in the last 36 hours, once after midnight you know a lot about that person. >> the director release one is about this bulk e-mail program, intelligence officials had said they shut it down on their own.
quote quote
1:09 pm
you have said that intelligence officials statements that were not true. with today's declassification by clapper, can you say with any more specificity what wasn't true in the assertions that these officials were making about bulk e-mail data collection? i can't get into the details, but let me be specific. in the document that was declassified today, it talked about how the bulk collection of e-mail was a vital capability. that was the specifics language used by the intelligence community. senator udahl and i believed early on that that was not the case. we able to show it was in effect worthless. that's the reason it was eliminated yet on the intelligence community when they first described it a few days ago, they said it was for
quote quote
1:10 pm
operational reasons. the fact of the matter is on issue away sure too many of the leaders have not just kept the congress in the dark. the congress have been given inaccurate statements. another line of defense is they scoop up tons but it's okay because they have a lot of rules about it. second there are questions about whether there have ever been any violation. with today's declassified information, can you shed any light on what these violations on americans' privacy were? >> i can't get into those details, but again i will try to add some context. first, those violations at the intelligence community were violations of court orders, jake.
1:11 pm
so when you hear something say there aren't any violations we point to that one specifically. in my view didn't fully portrayed the extend of the problems. all right. senator ron wyden, we've been talking about this issue for weeks, we've wanted you as a guest, and we'll continue to try to get you on the show -- >> we'll do it again. >> thank you, senator. coming up, move over joe camel. energy drinks are being accused of intentionally marketing to children. is this stuff even safe for your kids to drink. later, have you had your daily dose of propaganda today? no? you might want to start following the inns that gram account of syria's murderous dictator. stay with us.

welcome back to "the lead." in more national news they go by names like rock star full throttle and some of the commercials have even featured cute cartoon characters, like this one. i can't possibly imagine why anyone would accuse energy drinks dr right now the signal congress committee did grilling executives on a hearty whether companies are intentionally targeting young people. >> insisting they don't market to children. take a look at that cover. that's a 12-year-old boy on the cover. he's a motocross athlete, signed by red bug to promote the

1:17 pm
thirsty when they take one of these beverages, they're actually dehydrating themselves further a spokesman says there's been no evident ties these drinks to adverse health effects, do you disagree? >> strongly. we've seen over the past five years nationally a tenfold increase in the amount of emergency room visits directly related to caffeine and 78 times these drinks. >> sometimes are these kings drinking coffee? are they more dangerous than coffee? >> they are, because these drinks they keep -- they also have other additives. so the concern is with coffee. it's hod and you have to invest
1:18 pm
in it slowly where a lot of times these drinks are consumed very rapidly. lastly you come from new york. how would you respond to those who say this isn't your job as a doctor as a legislator this is the parents' job? >> absolutely. >> that's my point exactly. my concern is with a deceptive message, when you say energy it's not energy it's a stimulant. when parents are confusing they drinks with sports drinks and when the companies are marketing directly to children they're shifting away the parents' focus, taking away the opportunity to parent. when i see a deceptive practice i feel as a public elected officials i have a

1:31 pm
monday the world is used to its unthinkable brutality. it's eamericaned, that death toll the worst. and now egypt where an elected islamist has been opposed by a heavy-handed army it can't embrace. will a palestinian peace slow the flames at all? >> it's a new chapter of history. the events unfolding are completely disconnected from the so-called major issue which is palestine. >> they're stuck in a region that cannot lead and yet it cannot fix. it's now going to get into the middle of the syrian war. we are really going to be hard-pressed to -- the israeli/palestinian problem is the one area where in effect
1:32 pm
america's interest has nines and a demonstrated track report when it does actually succeed. >> the parties have agreed here today -- >> this is simply something america can live with trying again, and then failing to gain in. >> if -- it's going to be a huge blow to america's credibility, and frankly another nail in the coffin of the process that many people think is unimaginable. >> even a moderate success would be considered a great compensation for american policy failures in other areas of this region. >> if he succeeded, it would be great news for obama, if he does not succeed, it will be -- nick joins me live. how much do you think the decision is about self-interest for the united states? >> well as you heard, it's
1:33 pm
perhaps the safest area in which john kerry can use kernel diplomatic energy and stills. there are some that say the main objectives to a healthy peace process, hamas and hezbollah are tied up elsewhere in the flames engulfing much of the region. his back is against the wall in egypt right now. there are those critics who say much more simply, that -- america simply doesn't want to get involved. so really be involving themselves in this particular age-old issue of the peace process, they're still trying to show interest in the region too, and subject that not entirely disengaging while also accepting if they do fail they've been there before. >> for more on this i'm joined by columnist jeffrey goldberg.
1:34 pm
you wrote a column that was very skeptical of secretary kerry's efforts here seven reasons why, i think you used the world "delusional" this attempt is delusional. give us the top two reasons why you think it's doomed to fail. >> it's not delusional as much as pollyanna-ish. top two, jumaine, the most contested city third most holy for islam. muslim holy sites are built atop jewish holy sites. you have to dwin jumaine. you have to figure out a way for the parties to share it and be separate at the same time. that's impossible, nearly impossible. it's why the camp david process 13 years ago failed. it failed on then you have another set of issues have had to do with the descendants. what you're doing action what you're saying if you believe
1:35 pm
that this can come to a final conclusion what you're going to be doing is telling 5 million palestinians that you're not going home or to the place that you think of as home. you're going to have to find another solution to your problem. >> or some sort of compromise it's not happening. it's going to have to require such a seismic shift in the way people think about the problem. it's very hard for a palestinian leader to tell these 5 million people sorry, i'm not representing you anymore. the one more problem action abbas doesn't even crosses the gaza strip. hamas controls it. >> as john kerry said by next april he'll have the final status figured out, but hamas has to agree or else they'll try to subvert the peace process. >> their answer would be we at least need to try. you think it would make things
1:36 pm
worse? >> there's nothing wrong with trying but after we failed the last big teak in 2000 bill clinton, camp david, what came after that failure? a huge violent palestinian uprising. thousands died bus bombings mass killings in other words, if you raise homes and dash those hopes, you're dealing with a possible consequence of greater violence. the good thing here is i think very few israelis and palestinians believe the u.s. will achieve this so their hopes are not that high to begin with. so maybe there won't be a crushing sense of defeat and we have to turn to violence to solve our problems. what do you think of nick's theories that some critics say the u.s. is doing this to show at least they're engaged in a region because they don't want to get involved in egypt or syria, iraq or iran. >> john kerry's focus does call into questions hi priorities
1:37 pm
it's bringing in iraq. egypt is falling apart, and they're working on a problem that is not a crisis so it does raise the question of why. >> jeffrey goldberg thank you. bashar al assad is officially on inns that gram. you're probably thinking how does he find the time? the account features pictures of the president flank i by supporters or -- they are in stark contrast to images like these released earlier this week showing government forces patrol a ravaged neighborhood. coming up george zimmerman has met with the police once again. we'll tell you why, next. ever wonder what hollywood stars spend those enormous paychecks on? well george clooney says he's using his to try to stop

1:42 pm
blame larry summers for some of the deregulation of the economy under bill clinton, and say he wasn't aggressive enough for pushing stimulus. and they're saying waiting that larry summers, bad choice. >> and the president said stop reading the huffington post? >> yeah they got pretty specific. >> obviously it wasn't yahoo! news. there is a big push to -- what is your instinct in terms of where the president can go on there? >> first there's a wide range. he had a good time talking about immigration reform and of course he told the house democrats i'm going to miss you while you're gone. there's no question that she's competent, the vice chair of the board of governors.
1:43 pm
it will be a great choice if he decides, but larry summers is one that the president will also seriously consider. he has a great reputation in this town for being tough, but he's very smart. he understands the crisis that we have faced in the economy. i don't have a pick but i know that yellin is many would like to see in the job as well. in so far as anyone is interested in the reserve. >> that people have a strong sense of mr. gellen stands on quantitative easing. >> essentially with bernanke. >> with summers it's more ambiguous. he's made comments about expressing doubts about the fed's role and so on. it's a bit unclear, i guess i'll speak for liberals. about what the specific appeal of summers really is.
1:44 pm
with summers, what tense to happen -- he really is smart with summers you're getting brains but as harvard found out, sometimes brains when you're managing a lot of difficult egos isn't the only thing you need. >> you need experience in a crisis as well. we have to go, but i want your predictions on who he goes with. i won't penalize you. >> no one knows the answer. >> we're not going to know until the fall but i predict it would be a panel of bloggers because that's who's weighing in the most. >> i'll let you guys off the hook with that. donna, and on live yay knox

talking about, but it's the tv show "all in the family." let's take a listen. now, i saw the movie. i enjoyed it very much. this was certainly one of the odder moments in the film. the tapes come from the nixon tape the archive, no the from the home movies. >> exactly. almost 4,000 hours of audio recordings yeah. >> do you think that nixon would have wanted us to have seen these moments coming to know him as you do now? >> no certainly not. these were tapes made for his personal use, to look back on and listen to when he was writing his memoirs. these weren't made for people
1:50 pm
like me to come through and find nuggets of embarrassing nixon stuff. >> the man on the screen that's dwight chapin. he's the one surviving member. he's pushing back on the documentary. he gave us a statement that you can read in full. he says you are talented and calls it humorous and sometimes touching but calls it inaccurate and distorted. the film barely explores our years together and doesn't come close to presenting our nixon. they're my movies but it's not my view. what's your response? >> well i could say a couple different things. we didn't make the film that dwight chapin would have liked us to make action which would be a film about nixon was the
1:51 pm
