7:01 am
to action. >> president obama makes what's billed as a major address on the economy. >> he didn't announce any new initiatives. so what was the point? >> it's a hollow shell. it's an easter egg with no candy in it. >> a massive train derailment in spain. train cars jumped the track as it approached the train station. >> police are questioning the driver of that express train. >> the owner of the web side that published the alleged online interactions tells politico she's planning on going public soon. >> a lawyer said overnight nsa leaker edward snowden's application for asylum is still winding its way through the russian bureaucracy. >> after months of speculation, we have a name. >> george alexander louis will be known simply as prince george of cambridge. >> any chance he would go by jorge? >> no. >> well louis, louie, why couldn't you say george jorge? >> 15 of the cars are on their side, 3 of the cars are leaking

7:03 am
>> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with a major high-speed rail disaster. at least 78 people are dead in spain. more than 170 injured. >> americans are among the injured. authorities are searching for the cause but they don't think it's terrorism. mark phillips is tracking developments in london. mark, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. norah. the u.s. epbase in madrid now confirms that five americans were injured in this crash. when you see this spectacular and very frightening trackside video footage that's been released of the wreck itself it's a wonder anyone survived. security camera video published by a spanish newspaper shows the accident. it happens in less than ten seconds. the video seems to confirm the suspicion the train was moving too quickly for the tight turn on this part of the line. the train was on its regular 375-mile run from madrid to the northwest coastal town of el ferrol.
7:04 am
it came off the rails just outside santout outside santiago. many thought to be traveling to the area for an annual religious festival that's now been canceled. the cause seems to be a deadly combination of high speed and low budget. in order to save money when updating this line the spanish rail authority opted to use the existing right of way through the area. new fast trains were supposed to slow down to 50 miles an hour on this tight curve. it's been widely reported the train was doing at least twice that when it came around the bend and off the track. >> you know once a train goes off the tracks you know really all hell is let loose. there's no other way of putting it. >> many of the dead were found because their phones were ringing as desperate relatives and friends tried to see if they were okay. it's a major disaster for spain, whose prime minister was born in the town where the accident happened. he visited the scene today.
7:05 am
already under pressure for spain's economic and corruption crisis, he now has another problem. transportation safety to deal with it. the obvious question now is why the train was traveling that quickly. the two drivers who were in the cab survived and perhaps can provide an answer. one of them is under official investigation. he's said to have had three years experience on that line. and the train had passed a safety inspection on the morning of the crash. charlie, norah. >> mark phillips thank you. the nsa surveillance program collecting hundreds of millions of phone records from americans continues this morning. a house amendment to kill it lost by a narrow margin yesterday. the vote came after heated debate. >> we're here to answer one question for the people we represent. do we oppose the suspiciousless collection of every american's phone records? when you have the chance to stand up for american's privacy, did you?
7:06 am
>> are we so small that we can only look at our facebook likes today in this chamber? or will we stand up and find out how many lives we can save? lettess get back to moving america forward. >> it was snowden who leaked details of the nsa program may leave the moscow airport as early as today. the former contractor has been holed up there for more than a month. the former deputy director of national intelligence. what are the chances he leaves the airport? >> he needs two pieces of paper. one, we believe he has already. and that's simply a declaration from the russian migration bureau saying he has a case for asylum under review by them. so that just says they're thinking about it. the second one looks a little bit like a passport has a photograph, and that's his actual pass while they're considering his case to get out into the streets of moscow and leave that airport for the first time in many weeks. >> and yet secretary of state john kerry called his russian
7:07 am
counterpart yesterday and said they want russia to return snowden to the u.s. for a fair trial and kerry saying reportedly, quote, russia still has the ability to do the right thing. do you think russia is considering this as part of this? >> i think russia is waiting for an offer and waiting for a deal that so far the u.s. isn't putting on the table. the reason i think that you watch how they set the table yesterday. if you want to know what the russian government is thinking, one good way is to watch russian state tv. and our former bureau chief was monitoring that yesterday and said first there was the exclusive coverage of snowden's lawyer bringing him clothes, prestaging the idea he's going to get out of that airport. jend second were two stories about how the u.s. refused to extradite some criminals they wanted and the case of victor booth, one of charlie's favorite characters international weapons dealer russian. we grabbed him in thailand extradited him here. they want him back. but seems like they're promoting
7:08 am
the idea what have they got for us. >> you think that's a rez be a deal you give us snowden, we'll give you booth? >> i think the u.s. is very reluctant. that's an age old tradition. trading criminals for criminals is a place the administration and the justice department doesn't feel comfortable doing. >> very much want their hands on snowden. >> they do. the russians very much want their hands on booth. i just don't think that conversation has started yet. >> john on seersucker thursday. >> i think there's going to be a casting call for the remake of "matlock" and i didn't want to make it. >> excellent. we adore you. thank you. and here at home -- >> didn't know he was southern did you? >> i can do the accent. here at home president obama continues pushing his agenda today. major garrett is at the white house. major, good morning.
7:09 am
>> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. just about an hour and a half the president will leave for jacksonville florida where he will stress the need for bigger and better ports, roads and bridges. he'll tour the port facility in jacksonville where last year the administration sped up efforts to expand that facility. the white house hopes this renewed focus on economic growth will pay political dividends when budget fights with republicans intensify this fall. the white house knows its lost focus on the economy and must know go on the road to reconnect with americans still plagued by economic anxiety. this year the country's added an average of 201,000 private sector jobs a month, the best performance of mr. obama's presidency. but median wages have fallen 4% during the recovery. part-time work is in some cases replacing full-time work and 4.3 million americans have been jobless for more than six months. >> we're actually poised to reverse the forces that batter the middle class for so long. and start building an economy where everyone who works hard
7:10 am
can get ahead. but, and here's the big but, i'm here to tell you today that we're not there yet. >> reporter: the country has seen white house economic road shows before. this one is called a better bargain for the middle class. it follows winning the future. we can't wait. and middle class jobs and opportunity. >> hello! >> reporter: the names change but the themes do not. the message, republicans threaten middle class prosperity by seeking deeper spending cuttings. cuttings. and a fight over raising the federal debt limit. those battles are coming. mr. obama's trying to gain the political upper hand. >> we can't have all the same old debates. that's not what the moment requires. we have to focus on the core economic issues that matter to you. as washington is now preparing for another debate about the budget, the stakes could not be higher. >> reporter: in an interview with cbs evening news treasury
7:11 am
secretary jack lew told scott pelley that political standstandoffs, not obama policies, hold back economic growth. >> every time washington has a divisive fight that ugs is suggests we may become part of a problem, it actually hurts, it hurts in confidence. >> reporter: this is a slow rollout of administration speeches and concepts. chapter two next tuesday where the president will introduce new ideas on job creation at an event in chattanooga, tennessee. charlie, norah. we're getting news this morning about the drilling rig accident in the gulf of mexico it officials say natural gas has stopped flowing from the well but residual gas is still burning. manuel bojorquez looks at new questions about safety. >> reporter: the natural gas fire on the hercules number 265 rig has burned out of control for more than a day. beams that support the derick and rig floor have collapsed. the problem began early tuesday when a blowout an uncontrolled
7:12 am
eruption of gas, happened just as crews completed a second production well. all 44 workers evacuated the rig safely. the image, are a vivid reminder of the bp disaster in 2010 when more than 200 million gal bes of crude oil gushed into the gulf. dr. bornsch was part of the investigation. >> this is not a major oil spill. there's a small amount of oily substance associated with the blowout that's mainly natural gas so it's not going to cause the kind of environmental problems associated with the large oil spill like the bp spill. >> compared with oil, natural gas disperses easily lowering the risk during the spill. still, experts like bosch say this incident points to another problem. >> the real concern from my standpoint is what this tells us in terms of the safety of our processes for oil and gas production. >> reporter: the rig's owner,
7:13 am
hercules off shore, said in a statement, we have a full-scale response addressing the situation. once things settle we will turn to looking at potential causes. the company's first step could be drilling a relief well next to the rig to cap the leak. but that could take weeks. for "cbs this morning," manuel bojorquez, dallas. a mysterious food-born stomach bug is spreading across the nation and they have yet to pick point the source. we know this has affected more than 200 people. what's causing it? >> we're not sure. the infectious agent is a parasite by the name of cyclaspora. it can produce a prolonged, watery very uncomfortable diary that's also associated with nausea and abdominal cramps and often profound fatigue. >> so you have those feelings
7:14 am
what do you do? >> so charlie, go to a doctor mention the fact that you might have cyclaspora. the doctor can get specimens and send them for a diagnosis and there's treatment available. >> doctor why hasn't the cdc pinpointed what's causing this? it's obviously a food-borne illness. could it be produce? >> it's frequently produce with this kind of bug. the cdc detectives are the best in the world. they're working around the country in the affected states it this is a frequently very difficult problem to tease apart. they're working at it very hard. >> how concerned should we be then? >> well i think we just need to keep tuned because as soon as they find out what the cause is they'll let us know. because the goal is, of course, ton pre to prevent infections going further. >> doctor, thank you. we're getting a rare look inside north korea.
7:15 am
the communist country marking 60 years since a cease-fire in the korean war. our seth doan joins us from the capital pyongyang. >> reporter: it's quite a rarity to get here and once you're here everything is quite choreographed. we're told what we can see, where we can go where we can stand. the two minders are always by our side. even just getting into this country is quite an adventure. our flight to bepyongyang was packed with journalists and filled with propaganda. the in flight magazine showed glossy photographs of the country's founder kim il-sung and his grandson kim jong-un, the current supreme leader. the in flight entertainment signaled that we'd see and hear exactly what the north koreans wanted us to. no headphones needed.

7:17 am
king jong-un recognizable even from behind made an appearance to lay a wreath at this memorial for war veterans. this man, whose son is buried here, told us my son was a hero. and today he was praised by kim jong-un. here, there's really publicity that he's getting from two sides. overseas, kim jong-un seen as the type of leader who is presiding in front of huge masses of people getting rounds of applause and opening grand new memorials. inside north korea, he's seen as it is type of leader who warrants this sort of international attention. charlie and norah. there's another big story in north korea. the american held prisoner longer than anyone else from this country. his family is demanding the obama administration do more to bring him home. ahead, the interview that you will see only on "cbs this morning." and brazil this morning, crowds are ignoring the rain and

8:03 am
limit of 50 miles an hour. the train was doing about twice that. the driver, by the way, survived the crash and is now under official investigation. the u.s. embassy in madrid says five americans are among the survivors. an annual religious festival in the area to which many travelers may have been going has been canceled. instead, three days of mourning. charlie, norah? >> twice the speed going into a curve like that. >> it is incredible it kept going that fast. >> has there been any statement from anybody about what the driver was thinking about? >> i read that they said look let's not blame speed. the investigation continues. that's just speculation at this point about the speed oscar winning director, roman polanski's darkest moment is back in the news. polanski left the united states 35 years ago to avoid a possible prison sentence for having sex with a 13-year-old girl. the victim is now putting out a book telling her story as ben tracy reports.

realizing that i might be in trouble. >> geimer later told police how she was drugged and then raped in 1978 he pled guilty to unlawful sex with a minor but fled the country when the judge tried to dismiss a plea bargain. today, he continues to live as a free man in his native fraens. when her book cover was posted on the hollywood reporter's website, it is generated polarizing comments. >> people wonder how is it that she ended up in an older man's house and on the other, people that are extremely angry that a rapist has escaped punishment for 35 years. >> reached by phone, she told "cbs this morning" she had been following online posts. i was surprised by some of the things i read. i didn't expect the cover would be controversial. it seemed like the obvious choice to me. the girl, the life in the shadow of roman polanski, comes out in september.
