7:02 am
died alone surrounded by 25 cats. >> all eyes are on the government's april jobs report out this morning. most analyst expect this month's report to be better than march's report. >> let's get the motor city mad man and say that he threatened the president. that aislewill do it. >> a sinkhole outside of orlando, about 10,000 square feet wide. >> drivers in saudi arabia were in the middle of a 400 pound bird. >> more stuff about anderson cooper at a bar or at a gym or a health club than i do about what he's doing in the studio. >> he spoke for quite a while and he didn't call me a slut one time. >> hanging out with people is more fun. >> it's more dignity than hanging out on a show with you. >> i'm glad to say good-bye. >> and mariano torres tore his acl. >> do you think you'll come back and pitch again? >> at this point, i don't know. >> on "cbs morning news."
7:03 am
>> let's party, let's have a good time. cinco de mayo. god bless you. >> it's been almost a year since i threw up in a sombrero. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." the standoff continues between united states and china over chen guangcheng. he left the american embassy on tuesday is calling his situation very dangerous. he says american officials are not being allowed to see him in the hospital. >> china's foreign ministry says chen can apply for permission to study abroad if he wants to go to the united states. this morning secretary of state hillary clinton tried to look at the bright side speaking at a conference in beijing. >> you know we have disagreements on issues as well human rights which we raised in all of our dialogues, is one we are continuing to work on. but as our mechanism grows
7:04 am
stronger, as our engagement intensifies and sustains the more confident we become that we can speak freely on critical issues without endangering the future of the relationship. >> bill plante is with us from the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. the chen case has become a diplomatic disaster in u.s./china relations. and now it's generating plenty of political heat here in washington over the way the administration has handled it. the white house under fire for its handling of the chen crisis insists that it acted on his behalf. >> let's make clear that that was what mr. chen said he wanted. >> reporter: from the campaign trail, gop nominee mitt romney suggested the obama administration was more interested in getting chen out of the u.s. embassy in beijing than in protecting chen's human rights. >> if these reports are true, this is a dark day for freedom. and it's a day of shame for the
7:05 am
obama administration. >> reporter: the white house pushed back hard. >> mr. chen also said that -- reportedly, that he felt pressured to leave the u.s. embassy because he was informed that if he did not, his family might be in some kind of danger or under some kind of pressure.- >> that's simply not the case. at no time did any u.s. official speak to mr. chen about any physical or legal threats to his wife or his children nor did chinese officials make any such threats to state department officials. >> reporter: on capitol hill house republicans convened an emergency hearing thursday in which they heard an impromptu call from chen in beijing. speaking over the phone and through an interpreter, he made a direct appeal. >> he wants to come to the u.s. for some kind of rest. he has not had any rest in the past ten years. >> reporter: but making that a reality, u.s. officials currently in china, are in a
7:06 am
difficult situation. the administration very much wants to settle this before secretary of state clinton leaves beijing, but it's not easy. even if the u.s. said chen was welcome to come here that would mean nothing unless china allowed him to travel. the obama administration is in the difficult situation of trying to balance its position on human rights with what it considers the necessity of staying engaged with china. charlie, erica? >> bill plante thank you. also in washington robert gibbs, senior adviser to the obama re-election campaign. good morning. >> good morning. >> does the obama campaign and does the administration, the administration more specifically, acknowledge they may have mishandled and miscalculated the implications of mr. chen's visit there? >> well look charlie, this obviously is a sensitive, diplomatic case. i'm not in the white house nor am i in china. but i think we are -- the state department is trying to work out
7:07 am
a resolution that honors the wishes of mr. chen. obviously, it looks like some of those wishes may have changed over the past couple days. but i do not want to interject myself or my opinions or anything like that into obviously, a very sensitive diplomatic situation that i know is being worked very hard on the ground in beijing. >> it is unfortunate the united states could not visit him in the hospital, is it not? >> well look i don't think there's any doubt that we obviously have genuine concern about his safety and the safety of his family. human rights is a -- is an enormously important part of our relationship with china and with other countries throughout the world. it's something that i know secretary of state clinton and others have brought up directly with their chinese counterparts on this trip and on every interaction we have with chinese officials. >> clearly, this seems to be an opportunity to speak out on human rights in china.
7:08 am
is there a way to do that without worrying about offending the chinese and disrupting the security and economic dialogue? >> well, again, as i said charlie, the administration brings up the issue of human rights whenever we meet with chinese officials. whether it's in beijing, washington, whether it's in diplomatic meetings that occur outside of each of these two countries. >> criticism of the administration fair game here because, obviously, we're in a political campaign and mitt romney is criticizing the administration for not, quote, defending freedom and the u.s. embassy should stand for that most of all? >> well the u.s. embassy in beijing and every u.s. embassy around the world is a hall mark for freedom, for everyone to see. i would expect nothing but criticism from mitt romney on this or any issue in the next almost 200 days before an election, charlie.
7:09 am
>> do you think he would have handled it differently? >> i -- i -- if he wants to outline exactly how he'd handle it differently, i'm sure there are people that would write it down. but mitt romney on foreign policy charlie, has tended to be critical of what this administration has done whether it's in afghanistan or dealing with iran or here in china without ever laying out what he would do differently. most of the times, when he does talk about these issues you realize he's handling them either very similarly to what the administration does or in the case of afghanistan, it appears he wants to keep a huge number of troops in afghanistan for a very long period of time. obviously, the president wants to get our men and women home as quickly as possible. >> although there will be a presence there after 2014. >> there will be a presence. we're not going to have as you know, based on the president's trip and the signing of an important strategic agreement, they're not going to be permanent bases in afghanistan.
7:10 am
and i think it's -- we're bringing troops home. we brought troops home last year. we're bringing more troops home this year. and i think that's a responsible winding down with a large commitment that we have had there in order to make sure that the taliban can't reconstitute and we don't provide a safe haven for al qaeda. >> robert gibbs in washington, thank you. >> thank you. turning to the economy and this morning's unemployment report, we will find out how many jobs the u.s. added in the month of april. there are also warnings about tax cuts and jobless benefits that expire later this year. here with all of that is rebecca jarvis. good morning. >> good morning. >> first of all, this report expected later today. what is the expectation? we know march fell a little short. >> march fell short. april is also expected to show some sluggishness in the overall hiring environment. we expect to learn today 160,000 new jobs were created in this economy, which is fewer than what was created over the winter.
7:11 am
there's still some momentum there but the pace is slowing. >> what is it people speaking out about this so-called fiscal cliff that we may be driving towards. put that in context for us. what's the main concern? >> not just people but every ceo i speak to lawmakers are talking about this. i spoke earlier this week with the president of the chicago federal reserve. this fiscal cliff we're approaching at the end of year happens, if congress fails to act. if congress doesn't act, the bush tax cuts expire. the payroll tax cuts expire. in addition to that the extended unemployment benefits expire for those who have been unemployed long term. lastly the mandatory budget cuts also take effect. that is a drain of $500 billion on the economy. >> the mandatory coming from the debt ceiling negotiation? >> exactly. >> and is congress prepared -- when you talk to people in the business community, they believe congress will act on this or do they believe the dysfunction that has pervaded continue this.
7:12 am
>> it has pervaded congress now for years, and the expectation is that uncertainty is going to continue to reign. you talked to jack welch, former ceo of general electric earlier this week he pointed out that cliff. that uncertainty weighs on business sentiment and it means that when people -- when ceos think about what they're going to do next and they don't have a clear vision of the future not just demand for their business but also based off what washington, d.c. will do they make decisions in light of that and either they is sit still or they are to downsize out of fear of what comes down the road could impact their business. >> there's no way to know this but is there a consensus that the unemployment numbers will be above 8% at the time of the election? >> yes. i think that what consensus is is that they will continue to stay in this place if we continue to create jobs at the rate that we are creating them
7:13 am
right now. 160,000 jobs is not going to change the unemployment rate. it's going to be 8.2%. >> rebecca jarvis thank you. at the john edwards trial, aan interior designer told jurors he funneled secret money to one of edwards' aides. edwards has pleaded not guilty to using campaign donations to hide his mistress. a witness testified he received checks from a wealthy donor made out to a fake furniture business. one year after the killing of osama bin laden, we are now seeing his final words on line. capture documents show him concerned about al qaeda's image as he tries to get control of a weakened organization under siege. >> senior correspondent john miller former assistant director of national intelligence is with us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do you make of the letters they have gotten their hands on? >> well, i mean it shows a frustrated bin laden at once is trying to micromanage the
7:14 am
organization and at the same time realizes the lack of capability that al qaeda central has and is farming that out to some of the affiliate groups. what you also see here is some chafing of those very groups. groups like aqp and tahrik-e-taliban. aqi was getting high profile is they came out with a double issue in "inspire" magazine. >> the glossy highly produced online magazine has become the "vanity fair" of terrorism. the publisher was anwar awlaki propagandaist. samir khan an american was the editor. both were killed in a drone strike in yemen last year. the latest two issues of "inspire" magazine offer an
7:15 am
instruction of how to carry out a variety of attacks. >> al qaeda has moved to simpler, smaller plots, that don't cause as many casualties but which can still terrorize the west. >> reporter: the publication calls for al qaeda followers to set intentional wildfires out west using ember bombs. detailed instructions on how to operate guns and then to follow people and assassinate them. and how to develop plots using chemical and biological weapons in u.s. cities. >> if you look at the kind of targets al qaeda wants to hit, have you to look at a couple of characteristics characteristics. you have to look at casualties not just because the number of dead hurts the west but because it gathers more media attention. >> reporter: almost every issue of "inspire" has a section with detailed bomb-making instructions. there was a section on remote-controlled detonators. analysts believe the instructions came from this man, ibrahim al asiri, yemen-based
7:16 am
explosives expert. >> this guy designed the bomb that almost killed the deputy chief of counterterrorism in saudi arabia. this is the guy who designed the bomb that was used on northwest 253 on christmas day. he was the designed the bomb put in parcel post and mailed to chicago in 2010. >> now, the latest issue of "inspire" magazine came out together wednesday, double issue, after a long delay. some of the work to prepare these issues may have come from samir khan the american who ran the magazine but since kaun and awlaki were killed in that drone strike a year ago, it's clear al qaeda in the arabian peninsula has found new publishing talent. >> good news or bad news you're in this magazine? >> well, i'm in the section called friends and foes. that's where they take quotes from the counterterrorism officials, al qaeda spokesmen and mix them together to show that people are talking about them. part of the struggle for relevancy. >> is there any sense as to how many people this really reaches,
7:17 am
beyond people like yourself who are looking at it for clues? >> well, it reaches way many more people than the government would like. it's hard to get the number, though, because once people get it they turn it into a pdf, they start passing it around. we know from looking at that at least from when i was in the government, that tens of thousands of downloads happen here in the united states. >> just in the u.s. what about in other english-speaking countries like the uk? >> and many more in those places. i mean it's really -- they are leveraging the internet and globalization with a pretty high-end product. > is it clear we know a lot more because of osama bin laden and the raid there and his death and other means of disclosure about al qaeda than we've ever known before? >> i mean charlie, it confirmed a lot of what we suspected. but it did give us some new insight. not only -- it answered some of our questions about bin laden's real relevance and running the
7:18 am
day-to-day operations and it showed he had the same questions as to his own relevance. >> john miller thank you very much. time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the financial times" looks at facebook's hotly anticipated public offering on thursday. the company set a price of $28 to $35 a share. that would put a $96 billion market value on facebook. ceo mark zuckerberg's stock alone would be worth more than $17 billion. >> not too shabby. "the l.a. times" reports junior seau's family will allow researchers to study his brain. the retired nfl star shot and killed himself on wednesday. scientists will be looking for any brain damage that may have been caused by concussion. "the new york post" reports on the latest crime wave in the big apple. police say roving gangs are stealing manhole covers. they can fetch up to $7b5 apiece at scrap yards. costco in australia previews

i'll tell you this right now, if barack obama becomes the president in november, again, i will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. our president, attorney general, our vice president, hillary clinton, they're criminals. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." that was rocker and activist ted nugent three weeks ago at an nra convention in st. louis. when his speech went viral, some critics called it a threat against president obama. >> a few days later nugent had a visit from the secret service. in his first tv interview since then he spoke with jeff glor. >> ted nugent is loud unstopped, never at a loss for words. he's also politically influential. mitt romney courted his endorsement and got it. and as we discovered firsthand
7:31 am
during a visit to his texas ranch, nugent is ramping up the rhetoric again. >> if barack obama becomes the president in november, again, i will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. we need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in november! am i -- any questions? >> reporter: ted nugent said that on saturday april 14th. within days, he got a call from the secret service. when you heard from them, were you surprised? >> in this environment, when you have their conditions in our government, no, i'm not surprised. >> reporter: what did they say? >> they said hey, ted, we have to meet with you. somebody said you threatened somebody. i said, bring it. >> reporter: tell me about that. >> i feel sorry for liberals who can be that brain dead as to take a clear statement of fear on my part and turn it into a threat against somebody else.
7:32 am
>> reporter: nugent says the meeting took place at a hotel in oklahoma, where he was on tour. what did they say to you? how does that all take place? >> hey ted, good to meet you. thanks for giving us the time. hey, we appreciate you responding to our request. i said appreciate it back because you're following up on your professional responsibilities, even though you're responding to complete idiots, who you should probably be investigating. i think i eluded to that. there was a slight smirk. good-natured one, like that. and they sat down and they says there's some questions we have to ask you here. i said, good. and they asked me if i threatened anyone. i said never. couldn't. wouldn't. i wouldn't waste a breath threatening. >> reporter: how long did that give you? >> 35 40 minutes. >> reporter: long. >> because i was so open. as you can tell i'm rather verbose. >> reporter: their biggest concern was that you threatened the president?
7:33 am
>> no i don't think their concern was that i threatened someone. i think their concern is that someone claimed i threatened someone. in fact, eye got to tell you, and i don't mean to put any professionals on the spot but -- and i don't have the greatest hearing in the world, but i thought i heard something to the point of, i didn't think so. >> reporter: they said that to you, we didn't think you did? >> something like that. >> reporter: when the meeting was over 35 40 minutes, that was the end of it or you heard from them again saying hey listen -- >> in fact it was adorable. this is my favorite part. i don't have -- >> reporter: you would describe the meeting as adorable? >> i would. because they were -- they did their job perfectly. i answered the questions perfectly. >> reporter: and you were happy with how things went? >> absolutely. >> and they were -- >> nothing makes me happier than me. >> reporter: april was one of the more interesting months than you ever had. >> jeff that's where you're wrong. it's always been like this. >> reporter: it has not always been like -- >> it has always been like this!
7:34 am
you go back and look at these interviews, it has always been like this! >> reporter: politically speaking, you are more of an activist now than you were in 1970. >> political activism is being accelerated because the conditions demand accelerated activism, yes. >> reporter: you had a conversation earlier this year with mitt romney. >> i did. >> reporter: you endorsed mitt romney. >> i did. >> reporter: have you heard from the romney campaign after these comments? >> i have. >> reporter: and? >> i have to say what i say the way i say it. >> reporter: were they unhappy with you for saying that? >> no. they -- >> reporter: did they -- >> they expressed support. >> reporter: did they say listen, we appreciate the support. tone it down? >> nope. >> reporter: they didn't? >> i got the sensation it was -- not from mitt himself or mrs. romney. stan, freedom of speech is a beautiful thing. >> reporter: if mitt romney is to win, he needs at least some of the moderate vote.
7:35 am
you are many things -- >> but not -- >> reporter: -- but not moderate. >> if you examine how i conduct myself, i don't think a day goes by in my life for many many years now that we don't do charity work for children. i offer you this you done a lot of interviews? >> reporter: doesn't number. >> call me when you sit down across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life. call me when you meet someone who does that more than i do. because that's really moderate. in fact, you know what that is? that's extreme. i'm an extremely loving passionate man and people who investigate me honestly without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that i'm a damn nice guy. if can you find a screaming process more powerful than that i'll [ bleep ].
7:36 am
or [ bleep ]! how's that sound? >> reporter: we have no idea where that unexpected outburst came from. the second part of it directed to a female cbs news producer, who was off camera. but nugent did just have one of his midwest rock 'n' roll express tour dates canceled by the u.s. army. the group he considers the core of his support. >> these military guys are my blood brothers. >> reporter: so when they say, you can't play for them -- >> so when i hear the political correctness has somehow ma tasty sized into the decision makers of military i was let down when political correctness at has any role in the military. >> reporter: what's next? >> i'm a perfect human being. i stumble perfectly. but i aspire to and accomplish a perfect standing up dusting off in that arena and continue on. at the end of have day, at the end of my life, i will be in the asset column.
7:37 am
i will better mankind. i will better the environment. i will better america. i'm dedicated to it. i can't be stopped. >> reporter: we thank you for bettering this interview. >> and i'll better your interview. my pleasure, jeff. >> we released the romney clip on our website yesterday and the romney campaign responded by re-releasing a statement saying divisive language and offensive and inappropriate, no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. mitt romney believes everyone needs to be civil. not exactly the most stinging rebuke from the romney campaign. and ted feels that he didn't sleight them at all. >> why did he go off like that? >> good question. very good question. kind of stunned us. stunned our producer. his wife a very sweet woman, did come in after the interview ended. interview went on for ten minutes after this explosion. she said, ted, you need to apologize to molly. >> molly, your producer? >> and he did. at first he started to back off after he apologized and then he delivered a full apology. and we went on.
7:38 am
yesterday he called me on the phone, after we got back to new york, and said after our interview that he was rushed to the emergency room and had a kidney stone removed. so that's what he said may have contributed to his high level of energy. >> when he said it's always been like this, what did he mean? >> he meant he's always been provocative provocative, loud, caused controversy. >> has he always called the president and secretary of state criminals? >> no. that's why i pointed that out to him. i think he's acknowledged he's - upped the activism and that's why the secret service went to visit him. >> if someone cares about being known for doing things for little kid, the best way -- >> very good point. >> anything surprise you? you sort of expected him to be outspoken and loud and passionate. anything else that was surprising about it beside the outburst? >> he's still playing. he's more known now for these outlandish comments he's making
7:39 am
but he says he's a great guitaist. his quote, guitar eats faces, as only ted nugent can say it. >> translated? >> i'm very good at what i do. >> thank you. >> jeff, thanks. four years after his eight gold medals at beijing olympics swimming great michael phelps is back in training. does he have enough left for london? you'll see what he told "60 minutes." you're watching "cbs this morning."

8:03 am
obama, that he's the economic enemy, the religious enemy. he is the domestic enemy? >> uh-huh that's what it said. >> reporter: the post spread on the internet and ultimately stein was thrown out of the marines with a less than honorable discharge. this is a free speech issue to david loy from civil liberties unit helping to fight it. >> the real problem seems to be that, you know, what he said wasn't in the barracks it wasn't in a bar, it wasn't at the mess hall. he happened to be on facebook it went public and went viral. >> reporter: it wasn't just where he spoke but what he said. >> i said and my lawyers have said, what i said was not tasteful. >> reporter: and it was within the marine's discretion to fire him, says former marine colonel, now a lawyer specializing in military law. >> the type of speech he engaged in, is not only not protected, its prohibited by the regulations. you don't want a politicized military.

three years ago the murder
8:11 am
of one man's family stunned a small illinois town. then the surviving husband and father revealed that he had been getting threats. >> that is far, though from the end of this murder case. we have a preview of tomorrow's "48 hours mystery". >> reporter: when chris coleman couldn't reach his wife the morning of may 5, 2009 he called his neighbor detective justin barlow. >> the first thing i remember is the smell of spray paint. >> reporter: barlow with columbia police department was horrified by what he found in the house. >> just like staring at the evilist thing, staring satan in the face. >> reporter: manson style messages scrawled all over the walls in blood red paint. >> this crime scene wasn't bloody but it doesn't mean it was less gruesome. >> reporter: upstairs they found 31-year-old cherry and the coleman's two young sons 11-year-old garrett and 9-year-old gavin, all dead in
8:12 am
their bed. chris claimed the murders were connected to his work as head of security for world renowned teleadvantagist joyce meyer. >> we knew early on the family had been receiving threats. >> reporter: the threats started as e-mails, then were hand-delivered to the coleman's home mailbox. and then the unimaginable came true. >> a monster. i mean, monster comes to mind. >> those were three precious lives that were senselessly taken. >> reporter: police chief joe edwards. >> we felt with the prior threats that was going to be a very good lead for us who had such hatred for chris coleman. >> and maureen is joining us from chicago. good to see you. >> good morning. >> working for a televangelist doesn't seem like a job that lends itself to getting threats. i'm surprised that's what he did. >> well it was not uncommon
8:13 am
gayle, for joyce meyer to receive threats. she's a public figure and public figures in almost any industry is prone to threats. these threats seemed to be the first time they were directed at an employee and one of her employees, but ultimately as police went through vir investigation, they discovered the threats went back to chris coleman himself, and it was chris who had apparently generated some of these threats and he ultimately was arrested. >> that's suspicious. >> it is a little bit. "48 hours" had rare access to the crime scene. i know you've been to other crime scenes but was there anything in particular -- it seemed horrific the spray painting on the walls. what stood out to you here? >> you know, it sound macabe but we try to look at crime scene photos and spend time at kram scene. this isn't just television this is somebody's life. lives were lost. and this particular crime was really devastating.
8:14 am
as you heard the detective say, it wasn't bloody but it was haunting. for me it was very haunting to be inside this house, to see where these children had lived, where this family had been to see the words scrawled on the walls. it was -- it was devastating, is really the word i can describe. this was just a nice -- i know it's cliche, but a nice all-american family. and to have this devastating crime happen, it really ripped the community apart. and it was haunting to stand in this house. >> yeah. it's so interesting when you talk -- i keep looking at the little boys. gorgeous eyes, gorgeous mother. i can only imagine what it must have done to that community. columbia, illinois considered a nice, safe suburb. most people think, listen this is a great american dream to live here. what did it do to the community? >> i think it was -- people were both angry but they were terrified in the first couple of weeks, until chris was arrested they were terrified there was some maniac on the loose killing
8:15 am
families. but then they really became angry because as details about this family's life started to come out this was a family that had no history of violence. there was nothing between this couple. they both had been in the military. they had fantastic reputations. so, it really devastated them but they were very angry. >> and, obviously, there is much more to this. thanks for being with us this morning. maureen's full report "the writing on the wall" airs this weekend on "48 hours mystery" tomorrow at 10:00/9:00 central on cbs. tune in for that. michael jackson fans say an ill-fated pepsi commercial ruined his life. so why is the soft drink giant now bringing m.j. back in a controversial new campaign? you're watching "cbs this morning."
