2:14 pm
and what obama needs to do is talk about the pressure at home. >> blasting the u.s. for even considering a deal with iran. what are the implications here for the u.s.' daily relations. >> this has been a sore spot since the beginning of the obama affiliation. the key for the president and an international affiliation will be to reach some kind of an agreement that gives israel a hard package. >> chris christie easily won his election this week. >> i'm the governor of new jersey.

2:30 pm
stripped door frames out of the wall. around the world, people are seeing imiages of devastation. for many people living in the u.s., the images are too much to bear. >> martin, the death toll in the philippines keeps rising while the wait for word from loved ones continues around the world. the images have so many people that are hoping their family members are in the philippines without access to communication. >> it's too disturbing. i know the hospital was dwe stroied. it's not really sturdy houses.
2:31 pm
it's really disturbing and really hurts. >> the st. sebatian roman catholic church is where some 500 families go to worshipment almost all of the parishioners say they have no idea who has survived, what has been lost or who has been hurt. >> it's going to take days, probably weeks, before the full impact is felt. >> the church will be working to raise money for a massive relief effort. >> now with me, chief spokeswoman for the world food program, also an old friend. it is nice to see you again under the circumstances. but your organization already
2:32 pm
had people in the philippines because of the earthquake a few weeks ago. what's the latest that your teams are telling you? >> it's nice seeing you, mar tinl. the devastation is just absolutely, you know, heartbreaking. our people on the ground, we are responding to an earth quake. now our guys are on the ground. we've got several people in the epicenter of the destruction. we are preparing logistics and supporting the philippine government. everything is destroyed. the streets are often damaged. bridges are broken, the airports are proeken, run ways are got working. we are handing out energy biscuits where people have lost anything. when they cannot cook anymore, when they have lost their homes,
2:33 pm
everything. that is on the way. >> let me just stop you for a moment to ask. how do you get that to the people. you just explained the lo jiszices nightmare. what's the best way? >> we have to air lift it in. right now, it will go to manilla and then seaboo and then air lifted there. most of our supplies have gone into the earth quake zone. so air lift is probably the way to go. often with these kinds of disaster, we get it in there with helicopters. you get everything. it has 450 calories, you get two

2:39 pm
the images coming out of the fill penals are gut-wrenching. those are the lessons americans were exposed to during hurricane katrina. now, there's a book that details one new orleans hopt during that 2005 stormg. don lem morn poke with her about what happened at memorial hospital and how it could happen anywhere, even today. >> there's element of their
2:40 pm
back-up power below flood level. the sir cuts got wet. all power went out and it wam, you know, very unbearable. everything in american hochts these days relies on electricity. they have to decide who to save first. they had about 2,000 people in the hospital, about 250 patients. here, a year ago in new york city, we have hospitals that were vulnerable to flooding and we had a storm surge. many of our hospitals in new york city were there. we haven't learned all that we needed to learn and applied that. >> after that happening down in new orleans, what's the take -- what sticks with you most about this. e p i think obviously, the most extreme thing that could happen, happened. doctors and nurses were accused of hastening the deaths of their
2:41 pm
patients! that really means they were only live support and they were allowing them just to pass away? >> it was more than that. it was allegedly, and what i found out, is actually, that medicines were actually injected that would hasten the deaths of the patients. >> these are mercy killings? >> what is that line between comforting the patients, these are the same medicines you would use in a normal dose to give comfort. or were they pushing them over the edge. in the epd, there were 20 fashlts who forensic pathologists had received these drugs in short order and died. and some of the doctors were willing to tell me that yes, we did this. we felt that the situation was so desperate: j is there any sort of justification that it's better that the patient's life be ended than having to suffer
2:42 pm
through that? >> it's interesting. a lot of people thought that their families would say that. thank you for doing this merciful thing. my loefed one was not going to survive it anyways. but, in fact, almost 2-to-1, they were very upset and felt my mom or my husband doesn't have a whole lot of time left, but that time was valuable. >> does this become something more sinister? in your book, it says that they all vowed not to talk about it afterwards, right? >> they did. some of them told me there was a code of silence about it. and i think that was, in part, brought about by the fact that very soon, you know, some of the doctors and nurses really felt like this was the right thing to do on a desperate circumstance. these patients won't make it. other doctors and nurszs said are you kidding me? we don't do this. and they stood kwens it. very early on, day went to the media, they went to the authorities and the authorities
2:43 pm
started to investigate. eventually, they were investigated. spl was it a matter of, in this particular case, was it a matter of just how sick someone was? their race? their weight? what were the criteria to try hastening i think one of the disturbing part of this, there was a gentleman who was close to 400 pounds. he was conscious. he had eaten breakfast that morning. he said are day ready to rock and roll. aparentally, they had a discussion that he was just too heavy to carry down the steps. that is something we really need to think about.
2:44 pm
he was one of the 20 patients. they kept carrying fuel until they could get one elevator running and get him out. so maybe we have learned something. we need to think about the infrastr infrastructure in this country. there's a proposal to demand that hopts be brought up to a higher building standard so that by the year of 2030, which still a long way away, that we would have hospitals protected against flooding. it seems kind of crazy that we don't have that already. that's a vulnerability all over the country. >> our thanks to trchlt cheri fink. her book is called five days at memorial. next, we're going to los va gas.
2:45 pm
don lemon, we'll check in with him live. ar is not in the driveway. yeah. it's in the shop. it's going to cost me an arm and a leg. you shoulda taken it to midas. they tell you what stuff needs fixing, and what stuff can wait. high-five! arg! brakes, tires, oil, everything.

that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine.
