tv CBS This Morning CBS April 15, 2013 7:00am-9:00am EDT
good morning. it's monday, april 15th, 2013. welcome to "cbs this morning." north korea's neighbors are on edge watching for missile tests on the north's biggest holiday. we'll ask secretary of state john kerry why he wants to keep talking with the regime. a brand-new 737 crash lands in the ocean. what went wrong and how did all 108 people on board survive? australia's adam scott has a very good day at the masters. he'll tell us about his dramatic win. but we begin this morning with a look at "today's opener,"
your world in 9 on seconds. >> the united states remains open to negotiations to denuclearization, but the burden is on pyongyang. >> secretary of state keeps the door to diplomacy open. north korea is celebrating the 101st birthday of its founder. >> and there are fears its leaders may mark the occasion by launching a medium-range ballistic missile. >> i don't think they'll do anything more than their predecessors did, but they do have the ability to set seoul on fire. eight influential senators are expected to release a sweeping compromise plan for immigration reform on tuesday. >> do you think you can get this bill passed this year on immigration? >> i do. i'm optimistic about it. two powerful avalanches in washington state this weekend. one woman's dead. one man is missing. >> the avalanche carried him about 1279 feet at about 53 miles an hour. adam scott! the masters champion. australia, will have a green jacket, at long last. >> to win the masters tournament
is just an amazing feeling. an international manhunt is under way. in france, a know tore yur armed robber. he used explosives to blast his way to freedom. justin bieber is facing backlash after a trip to the anne frank museum. check this out. no way. in texas, it took less than ten seconds to turn el paso city hall into a cloud of smoke. and "all is that mattered." >> this bill would do more to limit than it would to prevent violent crime, and that's why i can't support it. >> some say it went too far. if you look at the bill, what we did we did right. >> on "cbs this morning." >> thursday marked the anniversary of kim jong-un being appointed leader of north korea, and apparently he is not happy, we forgot. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by prudential.
welcome to "cbs this morning." good morning, norah. >> good morning, charlie. did you catch the masters? >> i loved it. >> what an incredible finish. >> an aussie win. in north korea, it is a day of celebration and a nervous one for many of its neighbors. this is north korea's biggest holiday, the birthday of its founder. the united states and its allies are watching for a possible missile test to mark the holiday. meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry says the u.s. is willing to open up direct talks with north korea. a sign the obama administration is softening its rhetoric against the north. margaret brennan is in tokyo where they spoke to secretary kerry. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. well, north korea says that japan will be its first target if they go to war. and secretary of state john kerry was here trying to reassure the japanese that the u.s. will defend them. but also to discuss ways to get north korea to abandon its
nuclear program. the scene in the north korean capital was more festive than militant today. as thousands laid wreaths at the tomb of north korea's founder, kim il-sung. he'd be 101 today, and his grandson, current president, kim jong-un, was expected to use the date as an excuse to conduct another missile test. is he in charge or is the military? >> margaret, the best way to answer that is simply to say that every indication is he's calling the shots. obviously, a lot of what he's doing is directed internally at his own people. it is such a tight, closed society. so much propaganda. he's gone further in the nuclearization. he's gone further in the development of missiles, and he's clearly gone further in the level of his provocations. >> reporter: his rhetoric has had repercussions across the region. here in tokyo military installations were on high alert. antimissile defense systems were at the ready in case of a w
wayward missile. secretary kerry was here to try to defuse tensions. he convinced south korea, japan and china to join in a u.s. offer to reopen peace talks, even direct negotiations with kim jong-un if he first agrees to stop trying to build nuclear weapons >> if he will meet the obligations that we have all set out that are necessary, we are prepared to negotiate on a full range of issues. >> reporter: all paths have stopped, started and failed. the obama administration's been burned on that front before. why would it work this time? >> you'd better believe me, that's exactly why everybody's taking this differently. none of us want to go through the same cycle of a phony negotiation that's being used as an excuse while the program continues. >> reporter: one other interesting moment during that interview, charlie and norah, was when secretary kerry told me that he would still negotiate with kim jong-un even if he went
ahead with that missile test. he says right now he doesn't consider north korea to be a threatening nuclear power, but he thinks they are pushing the envelope, and that is why things are so serious right now. >> great interview, margaret brennan, thank you. the battle over immigration reform is about to hit the senate floor. a bipartisan bill could be introduced as soon as tomorrow. and it would address the 11 million immigrants who are living in the u.s. illegally. chip reid is on capitol hill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. on sunday with heard from the key republican in this group, and they now say that they are expecting to introduce this legislation tomorrow morning. senator marco rubio of florida is trying to convince conservative skeptics to support this plan. >> under existing law -- >> reporter: senator rubio appeared on seven tv news programs sunday including two spanish language channels. he expressed optimism over the bipartisan gang of eight's immigration proposal.
>> i think this bill answers all the questions that people raise. that's why it's taking so long. that's why we spent so much time on it and continue to spend time on it. >> reporter: details of the plan are still being worked out, but it would include tougher penalties on those who come here illegally, tighter border security, a new guest worker program and a pathway to citizenship that includes a background check and minimum residency of ten years. opponents argue the plan would ultimately give amnesty to 1 1 # million undocumented workers and take jobs away from americans, expected to be one of the most contentious issues in congress. >> it's logical that if you bring in a massive supply of low-wage workers, you're going to pull the workers down. >> they're already here, though, aren't they? >> well, you're talking about -- >> that's the point, isn't it, jonathan? >> you're bringing in huge more numbers of legal workers. >> reporter: arguing it would make it harder for them to become citizens under current law. >> i would argue the existing
law is more lenient, going back and waiting ten years is going to be cheaper and faster. >> reporter: another major issue for critics is border security which they say needs to be dealt with first. republican senator john mccain, a member of the gang of eight, has spent years working on fa failed efforts on immigration reform, but he's more confident this time around. >> i am guardedly optimistic that we will see finally the end of this long, long trek that a lot of us have been on for many years. >> reporter: if mccain is right and this plan or something like it becomes law in the coming months, it would be the first major overhaul of the immigration laws in more than 25 years. norah and charlie? >> chip reid, thanks. cbs news political director john dickerson is with us. good morning. >> morning, charlie. >> mario rubio made seven television appearances. who is his audience? >> seven. that set a new record. i think there might have been closed-circuit tvs he was also
on. his audience is mostly conservative. there are a lot of republicans who want to get comprehensive immigration, forward because of this last election. they think it's the hurdle that has to disappear before they can make an outreach to hispanic voters, but there are a lot of conservatives who are very suspicious. and marco rubio is the bridge to get those conservatives to back this. he was basically trying to knock down some of their charges. he was saying that this plan for the 11 million still in the country is not amnesty. that's such a loaded word. and he was trying to defang that word and basically say no, it's going to be very hard for these 11 million to get citizenship. and so this isn't sort of a free ride for people who have broken the law. >> so was he successful defanging, that word, as you say, what about senator rubio's own political ambitions? it's widely considered he would like to run in 2016 for president. >> the key thing for him is trust because people don't have -- the problem with immigration reform in the past is there were a lot of promises made about securing the border, about cracking down on employers who hired illegal immigrants, but then none of those enfor
enforcement provisions went forward. what he's doing is he's showing that a senator can get things done, and that's not often the case with senators. >> so for senator rubio, what is the biggest hurdle he has to pass? >> well, he has this trust hurdle. basically in the future, things will be followed up on. that the government won't just flake out in the end. >> let's turn to gun control. where are we with the votes that are necessary to do something on the floor in order to get gun control? >> supporters of gun control still need 60 votes in the senate. and i talked to those who are working this from the gun-control angle, and they say there are five democrats in states that barack obama lost. they will probably lose -- maybe lose four of those which means that to get to 60, given the number of democrats they would have, they would need nine republicans. and so they don't have nine republicans right now. the number, talking yesterday, those involved is at about 55 now. so they've got to find some
group, the committee on the right to bear arms which has backed this manchin/toomey compromise last week, this is a group smaller than the nra, but second amendment protectors, that might give cover to republicans who could come and support this measure. but right now they don't have the votes for the compromise they found last week. >> a big week in washington. gun control, immigration. we'll be watching. >> don't forget, the budget, too. it's a three-fer. they're very busy. >> and everybody is unhappy there. >> thank you. and the supreme court today will be asked to decide if human genes can be patented. biotech companies already have patents on thousands of genes. it is a multibillion-dollar industry. opponents argue that a company shouldn't be allowed to patent a product of nature. well, the justices may decide it's too late for them to rule because the field of genetics is changing far too fast. officials in texas may be closing in on a killer. the investigations into the deaths of a district attorney, his wife and another prosecutor seem to be focusing on a former county employee.
manuel bojorquez is in kaufman, texas. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. former kaufman county justice of the peace eric williams was arrested saturday and charged with making a terroristic threat. he's being held this morning on a $3 million bond. the arrest of eric williams comes as authorities investigate the murders of kaufman county district attorney mike mclelland, his wife, cynthia, and assistant district attorney mark hasse. hasse was shot in broad daylight in late january. the mclellands were gunned down in their home just two months later. >> it's unnerving to the law enforcement community. it's unnerving to the community at large. >> reporter: investigators have spent the last few weeks combing through cases the two had worked on together, looking for a motive. hasse and mclelland had successfully prosecuted williams for stealing county computer equipment in april of last year. >> there's three monitors
missing. one's on your desk. >> mm-hmm. >> right now. where are the others at? >> reporter: he lost his job as a result and received two years' probation. williams was questioned by police shortly after the murders, handing over his cell phone and submitting to a gunshot residue test. he denied any involvement in the incident, even publicly offering condolences. >> my heart goes out to all the families that have been affected by this tragedy and especially the people that work at the courthouse. >> reporter: still investigators obtained a search warrant for williams' home. his in-laws' home and a storage facility where they uncovered multiple guns and a car that sources say matches the description of a vehicle near the mclelland home the night of the murders. but williams has not been charged with the murders. in a statement on sunday, the local sheriff's department said, "we have not named any suspects or persons of interest in the case." as investigators continue their work, some residents in this
community gathered for prayer at the county courthouse. they prayed for the victims' families and for police to solve the murders. >> i'm not just hopeful. i'm believing they're close. it's coming to an end. >> reporter: "the dallas morning news" reports it was a threatening e-mail sent to county officials and linked to eric williams which led to his arrest. no court appearance has been set so far. charlie and norah? >> thanks, manuel. one person is dead and another is missing after a pair of avalanches in washington state. it happened saturday in the cascade mountains east of seattle. separate groups of hikers were hundred over by the fast-moving snow. rescue crews worked in blizzardlike conditions into sunday morning. a female hiker died hours after she was dug out. rescue crews are still looking for a 60-year-old man. more stormy weather is headed for the north central u.s. winter weather advisories are up in north dakota, wisconsin and michigan. there were whiteout conditions in north dakota yesterday. some areas got more than a foot of snow.
the main east/west highway had to be closed and road conditions were treacherous in minnesota. a truck carrying pigs collided with another carrying cows. the pigs ended up on the side of the road. now this story we love, this year's masters were full of drama and controversy. adam scott of australia won the green jacket yesterday in a two-hole playoff with angel cabrera. woods finished tied for fourth. his two-stroke penalty is still the talk of the tournament. tarell brown is in augusta with a look at how scott came from behind yesterday. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. adam scott started the day behind the pack. he was in third place, a stroke off the lead. then in a rain-soaked final round, he birdied on the 18th hole. that forced a sudden-death playoff with the winner of the 2009 masters, angel cabrera. >> a beautiful putt. >> above the hole. >> reporter: after angel cabrera missed his putt on the second
playoff hole, it all came down to this. >> there it is! adam scott! >> reporter: with a 12-foot birdie, adam scott became the winner of golf's premier prize. he's the first australian to win the masters. and at 32, he finally has his first major championship. >> i certainly will look forward to sharing this great honor with all of australia when i get home. >> this right here. >> reporter: scott's victory also erased some of the bittersweet memories from last year's british open. he was leading until an epic collapse in the final round. >> for adam, it would have been hard for him to lose again because he's sort of gave one away last time. >> reporter: tiger woods finished in fourth place, but some question why he was allowed to stay in the tournament at all. because of how he played the 15th hole on friday. a television viewer saw woods put his penalty drop too far away from his previous shot. that alerted officials to
investigate it and then dismiss the allegations. then woods gave an interview suggesting he did indeed break the rules to get a better angle. >> i went back to where it was and actually took two yards, you know, further back and tried to hit my shot another two yards off of what i felt like i hit it. >> reporter: though woods insisted it was a mistake, some wanted him kicked out. but augusta national decided to penalize him two shots instead. in a rare move, the tournament also penalized 14-year-old tianlang guan for slow play. he wowed the crowd just by making the cut as the youngest player. still the day belonged to adam scott, now the proud owner of a green jacket. >> i'm humbled, honored and just so, so happy that it all came together this week. >> reporter: and scott credits his caddie, steve williams, for making that tournament-winning shot. williams, by the way, was tiger woods' caddie for 12 years until 2011.
charlie? norah? >> i must say, i loved it. it had everything you want, including a playoff, including the guy most likely to win a major who had never won a major. everything. >> it was sad not to see cabrera win again. 43 years old, granddad, his son, his caddie, of course. it was great to see adam scott win. what a victory for him. really exciting. >> tiger played a lot of really good golf. he had that bad turn not only because the ball went back into the water which caused him to relay it up again. >> that's the game of golf. >> a great masters. and the course looked fantastic. time to show you some of the headlines from around the globe. we look at sunday's close election in venezuela. maduro narrowly defeated the opposition candidate. he was the hand-picked successor of the late president chavez. he's demanding a recount. and "the chicago tribune" says the faa is ordering inspections of more than 1,000 boeing 737s. the issue is a potentially
faulty mechanism in the tail. regulators say it could cause pilots to lose control if it failed. "the new york times," an op-ed article by a prisoner at guantanamo bay saying he's been detained more than 11 years, never been charged with a crime or received a trial. the man says he's been on a hunger strike and has lost 30 pounds. he says at least 40 other prisoners are also on a hunger strike. "the wall street journal" says the first patent on oxycontin expires tomorrow. generic drug makers want to make their own version. the fda is deciding whether they can produce the original version or newer versions to make it harder to abus

two things went right, allowing everyone on board this plane to survive. the gruesome trial of an abortion provider resumes this morning in philadelphia. dr. kermit gosnell is charged with killing a female patient and seven babies. >> his name may not be familiar to you, and that makes some abortion opponents angry. this case has suddenly blown up into a political firestorm. jan crawford is in washington. jan, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, charlie, norah. we want to warn you that some of the details you're about to hear are very disturbing. this week prosecutors will continue to call witnesses as they seek the death penalty against dr. gosnell. so far several patients and about a half dozen former employees have testified, and there are almost no words to describe their allegations about what happened inside that clinic. it started three years ago as the federal investigation into prescription drug sales. but inside the philadelphia abortion clinic of dr. kermit
gosnell, law enforcement encountered a grisly scene. last month the case finally went before a jury. >> his abortion clinic, a house of horrors, filled with stray cats and animal waste. 47 fetuses piled into a freezer. >> reporter: prosecutors said that routine drug raid was something much more serious. >> reporter: the doctor, charged in the murder of a woman during a botched abortion as well as the murders of seven babies born alive. >> reporter: the allegations stunned the city. an established clinic operating for more than 30 years and drawing patients from across the country was, prosecutors allege, a house of horrors where gosnell performed late-term abortions after 24 weeks and murdered babies who survived the procedure. the conditions inside the clinic graphically detailed in a grand jury report were squalid. unsterilized equipment infected women with venereal disease and untrained workers sedating patients. >> the grand jury went to the
scene. wearing hazmat suits. >> reporter: gosnell was the target of multiple complaints to the state medical board, but state officials had not inspected the clinic since 1993. gosnell on tril fal for his lif says he's not guilty. this reporter has covered the case since 2010 for philadelphia station kwy. >> there are images and details of this story that i am never going to be able to wash out of my mind. >> reporter: hunter broke the original story. he is now covering the trial where clinic employees have begun to testify. >> you can look at the skyline of philadelphia and some of the top medical facilities in the entire country right from the front of that clinic. this was not hidden away. >> reporter: but outside the state, few have even heard about the allegations against gosnell because his trial has received little national news coverage. cbs news reported on the story at the time it broke in 2011. just last week, a column in "usa
today" accused of media of ignoring the story because of what it called a bias in favor of abortion rights. those charges went viral on twitter and were picked up by republicans in congress. >> will the decades-long national news media cover-up of the brutality and the violence of abortion methods ever end? >> reporter: criminal defense attorney william brennan has been involved in many high-profile trials and even represented gosnell until the case became a murder case. >> a case involving a medical doctor charged with eight counts of murder would seem to me that just that fact pattern would make national news. >> reporter: but looming over this trial is, of course, the debate over abortion rights. opponents say it illustrates the brutality of abortion and how it's taking a human life while supporters of abortion rights who have condemned dr. gosnell say it highlights the need for clean, safe places for women to have legal abortions. charlie and norah? >> jan crawford, thanks.
our legal analyst jack ford is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> obviously this case is stirring a lot of political controversy and lots of controversy online. what's it about legally? >> as dan mentioned, all of this is circling around the battle. inside the courtroom it's not about that. this is not a battle about those particular abortion fights. it's really a murder trial. in some ways people look at it and say it sounds almost as if it's a medical malpractice case, but it's far more serious than that. because the prosecution is saying, look. deplorable conditions. the type of things you would argue about in a medical malpractice case, but they're saying it's much more than that because they claim he actually took the lives of seven babies that were born viable, functioning, and that he ended their lives. and with regard to the one woman involved, they're saying that his treatment was so grossly reckless that, again, much more than malpractice, but actually criminal. charged with murder, third-degree murder. you're looking at here in the
situation jan just described where the conditions were horrendous, you're looking at the possibility of a death penalty because of the fact that you have allegations of seven murders and an eighth. >> the grand jury report is so incredibly gruesome. why we did not share details in there. what's its defense? >> well, it's an interesting defense. the defense is saying, first of all, i didn't do this. so these allegations that i literally ended the lives of seven babies that were born alive, i did not do that. with regard to the death of the woman, it was a terrible accident. but again, i'm not a criminal. and the claim is, look, this may well be a horrible facility, but that's not enough. this is what the defense is saying, for him to be determined to be a criminal. >> and how is it that there's not been any oversight or not been any inspection since 1993? that doesn't seem to make sense. >> that's very troubling. there are a lot of things very troubling coming out of this. one of them people have argued -- this is a high-end medical facility, but because it
served people on the low end of the economic spectrum, it's an example of people are just sort of allowed to let slide in the health care system. >> so many of the clients were young, poor, illegal immigrants. jack ford, thank you very much. and the national transportation safety board is sending a team to bali, indonesia. they're going to investigate the crash landing of a lion air 737 that missed the runway on saturday. all 108 passengers and crew survived. well, the incident is putting a spotlight on the airline's safety record. lion air has been involved in six accidents since 2002. >> reporter: details of the pilot's debrief are beginning to explain how the plane belly flopped into shallow water. as the jet approached heavy rains obscured visibility of the runway. and the lion air captain who had logged over 15,000 flying hours said he felt the plane being dragged down by the wind. he tried to abort the landing for another attempt. >> for this outcome to happen, it probably means that more than
one thing went wrong. one of the things that we've done a good job in aviation is that we have lots of checks and balances. we have lots of ways to prevent a single failure, a single fault, single error from leading to a bad outcome. >> reporter: a lion air spokesman said the $89 million boeing 737 next-generation plane was received by lion air last month and declared air worthy. on saturday, it had landed safely in two other cities before crashing in bali. cbs news travel editor peter greenberg is here. peter, good morning. okay, we used the word "crash," but you think we should change the terminology in terms of crash versus hard landing. why? >> technically, this is a crash and will be listed as such, but this was a survivable hard landing. any time you have a landing where the forces are less than 16 "gs," you have a reasonably good chance of getting out. in this case and one other cases, one involving captain sullenberger and the process of landing, the planes were flared out. in sullenberger's case, he prepared to land.
he knew what he was going to be doing. he had no other choice. in the two other cases, the lion air case and one that happened in jamaica in 2009, another 737, american airlines flight 331, landed long on the runway late at night in a rainstorm. he landed 4,000 feet down the runway when he should have landed 800 feet down the runway. but in all of these cases, the reason why they were survivable was because there was no fire and no smoke. and what you see historically is that people can survive the impact, but they die from the toxicity of the fumes created by the smoke and fire. we were very lucky in all three cases. >> what do you make of the fact that this airline has had troubles before? >> well, as you saw in the report, six cases of an accident, four of which, since 20 2002, four of which involving a 737. these are actually banned by the european union right now from flying into their airports one of the reasons is when you have such a rapidly expanding airline, they're having trouble finding qualified pilots. this particular pilot had 15,000 hours. but the other cases, one of
which involved 25 deaths, another story. >> what went right here? i mean, the fact that all of the passengers were able to survive. good pilot? >> well, remember, the original story that came out which was wrong, he basically hit the water after leaving the runway. he never made the runway. he landed short of the runway in the water. the water cushioned the impact. the same thing that happened with sullenberger and the same thing that happened in jamaica. by the time the plane went off the runway -- >> so is that by definition a bad pilot? >> well, it could have been wind shear. at that low altitude, you have no choice. you're going to hit. >> peter, thank you so much. and justin bieber is facing a backlash in europe. this time the problem is comments he made about holocaust victim anne frank. criticism is reaching a high pitch on facebook as well. and tomorrow alec baldwin talks about his new broadway play. i just saw it. and life after "30 rock" on "cbs this morning."

pop star justin bieber has touched off a new storm of criticism. over the weekend the singer visited the anne frank museum in amsterdam. and he said he hopes the teenager who died in a nazi concentration camp would have been a fan of his. mark phillips is in london with this story. mark, good morning. >> good morning, norah, charlie. well, until lately, justin bieber could do no wrong. he was the squeaky-clean teenage star, the one mothers didn't mind their daughters having a crush on. but his fabled innocence has landed him in trouble. you've got to be careful what you say about the holocaust. ♪ >> reporter: sensitivity about the holocaust may not be on the minds of justin bieber's fans who have been thronging the concerts on his world tour, but they're getting a crash course on holocaust sensitivity now. because the young pop sensation
has had his 19-year-old knuckles wrapped in the social media for leaving an odd note in the guest book when he visited the anne frank museum in amsterdam. it's where the jewish teenage holocaust victim made famous by her diary hid from the nazis before being discovered and shipped to the concentration camp in 1945 where she died. bieber said the visit had been inspiring, that anne was a great girl, and that "hopefully she would have been a belieber," in other words, one of his fans. the internet lit up. she would have been a what? someone said. that little idiot is way too full of himself. and thousands more to that effect. to use glib pop music language in connection with the holocaust may have been carrying even pop naivety too far. others say bieber should be cut some slack. maybe, they say, he was just wishing that anne frank had had a normal life instead of a tragic short one.
>> in her diary, there are dreams of hollywood and all the film stars. i'm sure that she would have been we hope living a normal, happy life which for any and-year-old involves knowing what justin bieber's up to. >> the anne frank museum says bieber came in good faith. for his part, this is another episode in which turning into a rough tour for bieber. he's had angry confrontations with photographers here in london. in a bizarre scene, he had his pet monkey seized in germany. he's had to cancel concerts in portugal. apparently, norah, charlie, being a teeny-bopper pop star isn't what it used to be. >> how would you know? >> mark phillips, thank you. you know, at least -- if you haven't read the diary of anne frank -- >> exactly right. >> and people of that young age

"60 minutes" goes to africa looking for joseph kony. lara logan will show us what they found. and a runner getting ready for today's boston marathon. he won the race 45 years ago. but first here's a look at "today's eye opener at 8." >> if he will meet the obligations that we have all set out that are necessary, we are prepared to negotiate on a full range of issues.
>> secretary kerry said he would still negotiate with kim jong-un even if he went ahead with that missile test. if this plan or something like it becomes law, it would be the first major overhaul of the immigration law in more than 25 years. >> there are a lot of conservatives who are very sufficient. and marco rubio is the bridge to get those conservatives to back this. the investigations into the deaths of a district attorney, his wife and another prosecutor seem to be focusing on a former county employee. it could have been wind shear. if the wind leaves you, it's like the rug being pulled out from under you. at that altitude, you have no choice. you're going to hit. apparently being a teeny-bopper pop star isn't what it used to be. >> how would you know? the man hands the ball to what appears to be -- oh, look at that! >> i don't need that ball. there it is! adam scott. >> i haven't had time to think of anything. i'm trying to come up with some good stuff for you guys.

>> reporter: secretary kerry told me it would be a mistake for kim jong-un to test launch a missile, but he said his offer to negotiate still stands even if there's a launch. for "cbs this morning," margaret brennan, tokyo. a bipartisan plan to make sweeping changes in u.s. immigration laws could be announced as early as tomorrow. it would open the door to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who are here illegally. chip reid is on capitol hill. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. sources here on capitol hill say the so-called gang of eight is expected to announce its comprehensive immigration plan tomorrow. the key republican in the group is florida senator marco rubio. he appeared on seven tv news programs sunday, expressing optimism over the proposal chances of becoming law. details are still being worked out, but it will include tougher penalties on those who come here illeg illegally, tighter border security, a new guest worker
program and a pathway to citizenship that includes a background check and residency of at least ten years. conservative critics say the plan would give amnesty to 11 million undocumented immigrants and take jobs away from americans. that's expected to be the most contentious issue. republican senator john mccain of arizona who's a member of the group of eight, the gang of eight, has been through this many times before, but he says he's more optimistic now than at any time in the past. norah? charlie and gayle? >> thank you, chip. the senate is also ready to take up gun control as soon as tomorrow. a bipartisan proposal would expand background checks for gun buyers at shows or online. private gun sales between family and friends would not be covered. the nation's second largest gun rights organization reportedly is backing this compromise. on saturday, francine wheeler who lost her son in the newtown, connecticut, shootings said gun violence must be stopped now. >> i've heard people say that the tidal wave of anguish our
country felt on 12/14 has receded, but not for us. to us, it feels as if it happened just yesterday. and in the four months since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other americans have died at the end of a gun. thousands of other families across the united states are also drowning in our grief. please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy. >> wheeler filled in for president obama delivering his weekly address. an international manhunt is under way for a career criminal who blasted his way out of a french prison. police say the man used explosives to blow open five armored doors over the weekend. he took four prison workers hostage during his escape. police say the explosives were hidden in tissue packages, and then smuggled into the prison. he was serving a sentence for killing a police officer. disneyland visitors didn't

he's considered the world's most-wanted warlord. u.s. special operations has been tracking him for more than a year. this sensitive mission has gotten little attention until lara logan's report on last night's "60 minutes." she joins us now from aush wa washington. lara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. joseph kony -- >> sorry, you go. >> reporter: well, joseph kony has been on a murderous rampage that's lasted almost three decades, killing thousands of people and building one of the biggest armies of child soldiers in history. kony started out in northern uganda, but his campaign has spread to four countries. and he's now operating in this vast area in the center of africa. we traveled there to report on one of the biggest manhunts that's ever taken place. you don't have to spend much time here to understand why it's so hard to find joseph kony.
it's as isolated and unforgiving as it gets. the undergrowth so thick, every step is a battle. when our producer joined this ugandan tracking team, they had been searching for kony and his army called the lord's resistance army, or lra, for three months, tracking them the way you would an animal. >> right now we are trying to find the enemy tracks. >> footprints. >> the lra. >> reporter: this 27-year-old's sole mission for the past three years has been finding kony, and he's one of the ugandan army's top trackers. the footprints are the first sign they've seen of kony's army in six days. as they follow the trail, the soldiers whispered so as not to give away their position. after an hour, they reached this
stream, but the tracks disappeared into the water. >> no lra. okay. >> reporter: there were no green berets on this mission. they do go off on operations like this, but they prefer to stay in the background, keeping a low profile is part of the u.s. strategy. >> they're the lead. they've always been the lead. we're relatively new here. we've only been here just about a year. it's really an african problem. it's being handled by africans. >> reporter: colonel kurt crytzer flew with us over the seemingly endless jungle where the area they're searching is as big as texas. he took command of the u.s. special operations mission here not long after president obama decided to send in troops 18 months ago. >> the environment is some of the most unforgiving on planet earth. when you get to the jungle, 50 feet in, you disappear.
>> reporter: you're like a ghost. >> you're like a ghost. >> reporter: recently the ugandans and the americans temporarily suspended their hunt in the central african republic because of political unrest. but not before ugandan soldiers killed kony's chief bodyguard close to where we filmed them. >> so lara, the question is, one, why is this in the u.s. national interest? and two, the special ops forces are the best force we have for this kind of mission. why is it so difficult? >> well, good questions, charlie. and the u.s. is involved in this because the ugandans are a critical partner in the war against terror. and with the rise of extremism and terrorist networks across africa, the ugandans are in the lead in that fight in somalia and other places. so this is part of the u.s.'s effort to build relationships and counter terrorist networks without being involved in another war. i mean, it's very obvious that, you know, another iraq or another afghanistan is not what the u.s. believes is in its
interests right now. and this is a way of fighting those wars without actually having to have boots on the ground doing it all for you. and why is joseph kony so difficult to find? what's incredible, charlie, this man has been in the jungle for more than 25 years. even though he's on the run and his army is down to just a few hundred, there are few people ever who know as well as he does how to survive in that austere environment. many of his soldiers that we spoke to talked about starving almost to death. they would do things like bury messages in the ground, and that will be near three hills by this tree, et cetera, et cetera. and that's how they'll communicate. and it doesn't matter if it takes them six months to go there and get a message. they're incredibly disciplined, and they know how to use that jungle to their advantage. so as the colonel said to us, he's not an admiral human being but an admirable adversary.
>> how close do they think they are, and what are they going to do with him if and when they catch him? >> those are all good questions, gayle. if they capture him, kony may be killed. it's unlikely that he's just going to surrender, you know, give up and go easily. a lot of his soldiers have been given amnesty by the ugandans who really want to heal and move on, but there are a mof them. and obviously joseph kony is one of them that would have to face trial if he were taken alive. are they getting closer? it's a good question. you have four armies looking all over the central republic temporarily suspended now but they're waiting to resume the hunt for him there. they believe that they are. i mean, the u.s. is not just their physical presence that's important here. it's the fact that they are the political liaison between these four african countries. and they're mending a lot of political fences in order to get them to work together. and that is very significant because kony has used the borders in that area and taken
advantage of that. he's very good, you know, at exploiting whatever natural advantage he has. and he knows when he crosses into south sudan or former democratic republic of congo, that that makes it difficult for the people who are chasing him. so are they any closer? colonel crytzer said he wakes up every day thinking, today could be the day. >> today could be the day. thank you, lara logan. we're certainly watching.

was not there just last year when i was still there where democrats and republicans are getting together in equal numbers. they're talking through some of the toughest issues in immigration reform certainly has been tough. but other issues, the gun issues and even the budget, i think if this could open up the grand bargain which would get our deficit down and get our fiscal house in order, it would be just a breath of fresh air. that the whole world is really looking at it. >> so while we see more bipartisan, is it because of the election? is it because people decided that these issues needed something because of newtown and with respect to gun control? >> i think there has been a frustration, charlie. i felt that when i was there, because there -- there really is a sense that our country is in a real crisis. this fiscal economic crisis is weighing on all our minds. and i think the frustration that
we couldn't make real deals that had long-term impact was affecting all of our colleagues, or most of our colleagues, i'll say. and so i think that that has been building, and certainly after the last election, it's been building, too. >> would you, therefore, being a member in good standing of the nra, urge your republican colleagues to give gun control a second look and perhaps pass what will be debated on the senate floor ? >> you know, i think it depends on what comes out from the amendments. i think that certainly the fact that they are talking about it, that they're going to amend these bills, i think background checks are certainly the way to go. >> oh, good. >> i think background checks, who could argue with wanting to make sure that we don't have people who are certified mentally ill or felons that, you know, we need to have that information. maybe it wouldn't have affected newtown which has gripped all of our hearts, but it will affect
the future. it will. >> can we talk about your book for a second, "inflinching courage." are texas women different creatures? you tell the story of barbara houston, she had a breast tumor removed with no anesthetic. emily austin brian terry who was told don't bring anything heavy when you come to texas. do we dare mention norah o'donnell is from the state of texas. what is it about texas women that makes you different from other people? >> i am going to quote an old cbs friend, dan rather, when he said, you know what? if you're a man, marry a texas woman because no matter how bad things get, she's seen it worse. >> i like that. i like that. >> but seriously. the book is about 19th century texas women who came from je genteel families. henrietta king, the king ranch
was the largest in the world, started out in a mud hut with not even room for her kitchen utensils. these are the things that built a character and a resilience but with a happy face. i mean, they were resilient, and they were facing obstacles, but they were still having balls at people's houses and dancing the night away. >> what did you learn, senator, and was it something about -- what quality traits do you think many of these women shared? was it perseverance? what was it? >> it was. it was resilience with an optimistic attitude. that's what they shared. and norah, it's still good today. i mean, our women, our young people, boys and girls and young men and women, face obstacles. but the resilience is mixed with an optimism that i think is worthy of our study even today because if you realize that people have overcome a whole lot worse than what we are looking at and they've done it with an
optimistic attitude, that you can overcome anything. >> if they were leaning in even back then. >> leaning in. >> what do you think of texas men or men who have lived in texas? >> well, in my book, i say, texas is great for men and dogs. >> thank you, senator. >> thank you. that's great. >> that's really good. is he basebastian junger has good morning. light rain still is falling around the metro, but it is beginning to diminish. as a matter of fact, that shot of camden yards as you look at first warning doppler is pretty much where it's become kind of spotty right now. let's take a look at the forecast for the day. it's not going to be a bad one. we will lose this moisture before lunch. this afternoon mostly cloudy and 62.
documenting the rebels' struggle in libya. now junger is focusing on the life and work of his remarkable friend. >> my work as a filmmaker, i always look to be as close to the subject as possible. you're always looking for those moments when the machine breaks down, where there's cracks in it. and i think what happened to us in terms of being given access into this remote valley in afghanistan was that people kind of forgot about it. and i think it was that persistence going back and back that gave us such unique access. >> the hbo documentary is called "which way is the front line from here?" sebastian junger is here with us. >> good morning. >> the title comes from something that tim actually said along the way. and what was interesting to me, it's such a beautiful, powerful tribute to your friend. you talked to his parents, his girlfriend. you talk to people who worked with him. and what i learned watching him is that it wasn't so much about war, but documenting human nature and humanity that you actually can find there. >> we were in a lot of combats
together out at restrepo in eastern afghanistan. i remember tim saying to me, one of the least interesting things about combat is kbocombat. it's very dramatic, but it's actually not that interesting. was the emotions out there, the relationships between the men. there were 20 men on an isolated hilltop for a year. and it really became just a very strange tight-type family. >> the work is so important, sebastian. his death has certainly had a big effect on you. >> you know, i found out by basically phone call that he had been killed. we were such good friends. we were brothers, really. and i'd say within an hour, i decided that i wasn't going to cover war anymore. >> an hour? >> within about an hour. i had been covering war since the early '90s in bosnia. at age 49, i found out my good friend had died, and i was out. >> he was killed in libya. >> he was killed in libya in misrata fired by gadhafi's
forces. that's right. >> what did he have that made him so remarkable? >> you know, it's hard to describe, but for him photography was almost not the point. like what he wanted to do was engage with people. and by the way he'd take their photo. almost as an afterthought. and he was a brilliant photographer. i think that's what made him brilliant. he wasn't trying to take images from people. he was trying to have a relationship even for 30 seconds. and that brought out the really deep humanity in everyone and his camera caught that. >> the fact that you are leaving the profession of war reporting is so striking because i know you believe so firmly in the importance of it, right? i mean, so firmly in what it means to tell the stories of the troops that are serving in afghanistan that people at home don't know what they're going through. >> well, i think you can't have a free society without information. and journalists provide the information. and there have to be journalists out there reporting not just on american wars but all wars. they're all important.
there just comes a time in every journalist's life, and i'm 51 right now, you kind of have to get out. >> personally, yeah. for you personally. >> for me personally. >> and do you think that's happening now in afghanistan, that we're telling it, even as we're drawing down forces, we still have so many there? people think the war is over, but it's not. we have tens and tens of thousands of troops there. americans. >> yeah, we do. i mean, i think we've been an incredibly stabilizing force in that country. this is the lowest level of civilian casualties in afghanistan in 30 years because we're there. i think the trick is to draw -- i mean, i'm not a military strategi strategist, but i think quite ob the trick is to draw down our forces to an appropriate level without having the whole house of cards come down. it's really important. >> is it possible? >> yes, i do think it's possible. >> so the landscape of afghanistan after the last american troops leave will be what? >> you know, i don't think the last american troops will leave. i think there will be some force presence there, if only
platforms for drone capability. we have to keep an eye on pakistan. they're not going to let the taliban taca bull. there's going to be some presence there, probably special forces. >> was it a really tough decision for you to decide i'm leaving? because i know how much this work means to you. it's almost a contradiction what you're saying. >> you know, i answered all the questions i had about war and about myself and war. and i realized in addition to the tragedy of tim's death, i realized i was risking repeating myself. >> sebastian junger, thank you. the documentary is very powerful. the hbo "which way is the front line from here: the life and times of tim heatherton" debuts this thursday on hbo. today is a big, big day for runners in boston young and old. >> reporter: he ran his first boston marathon when he was 18. at 66 he's still going strong and about to do it again. a run and visit with amby
burfoot coming coming up. the humble back seat. we believe it can be the most valuable real estate on earth. ♪ that's why we designed our newest subaru from the back seat forward. introducing the all-new, completely restyled subaru forester. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. hey scott -- yeah, it fades after awhile... it fades because it's inferior mulch, man. look...nature scapes is scotts best mulch -- they guarantee it to hold its color for a full year. wow. i figured you just did your mulch flipping at night. scoooott, movie's starting. oh, there are better ways to spend an evening, lad... get scotts nature scapes mulch. it's guaranteed. scotts is proud to be the official lawn care company
there will be plenty of joggers and runners today on the streets of boston. it is the 117th edition of the world's longest-running marathon. jeff glor caught up with one of the race's most durable runners. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. when the marathon began in 1897, there were 18 runners. today there are more than 20,000. one of them is a man named amby burfoot, a winner from the past who is still inspiring runners of the future. >> reporter: when amby burfoot won the boston marathon in 1968, he was 21 years old. >> beautiful. >> reporter: 45 years later, he's going yet again. your training runs these days are how long?
>> oh, this last week they were about 40 minutes. >> reporter: burfoot, now 66, has been running marathons for six decades. and it's not a stretch to say both he and his sport have aged very well. are you surprised at how far marathons have come? >> i'm not surprised, absolutely startled. nobody could ever have predicted this. i mean, we were loneliness, long-distance runner was the phrase in the '60s. we were still considered freaks. >> reporter: what are you now? >> now we're much more part of the mainstream. we fought for recognition of this sport for a long, long time. >> reporter: the first running boom came in the 1970s. but the bigger leap was in the mid-1990s as more women stepped on the course. >> you can't even describe the change in 50 years. there were three women in the boston marathon, i believe, the year i won. >> reporter: only three women. >> there were three or four women in the field. they were not recognized. they couldn't have numbers.
they didn't receive prizes or trophies or anything at the end. they were bandits. >> reporter: today they're part of the tradition. of the nearly 27,000 registered runners in boston this year, more than 11,000 are female. >> i haven't won a lot of marathons. this is the biggest victory of my life for sure. >> reporter: burfoot was able to turn his love of running into a lifelong career at "runner's world" magazine where he offers advice and anecdotes for the next generation. for the past four months, he's been documenting his boston training online. >> on the longer runs, i'll be running for four minutes and walking for one minute. running for four and walking for one. no rules against it. it's a perfectly sensational way to cover long distances. >> reporter: what is it about boston that makes it such a tough course? >> oh, the boston course will lull you into thinking that you're a better runner than you are because it starts in the country and goes downhill for the first six miles.
and you look at your watch and you start salivating and you think you're going to run a fabulous time. but then you hit the hills. and the hills are crushers. and they come from 16 to 20 miles. and then you have to go downhill again into the city of boston. and it's the actual downhill that tears apart your leg muscles and reduces you to a walk if you're not very careful. >> reporter: you're hoping for a day just like this? >> yeah, really, cloudy and overcast, cool weather. keeps the body temperature down. >> reporter: how are you still doing this? >> i'd like to say i'm three times older than i was when i won boston, and i'm running one-third the mileage. i've still got a little fire in the belly. i can't quite put it out, but i'm trying to be smart about my approach to running. >> reporter: that fire in the belly is a good thing. >> it is a good thing. i wouldn't want it to go out. maybe it's embers in my belly, but they're still alive, thank goodness. >> you know, i love that it's he's aged and he's still running, though he's trying to
be smart not to injure himself. he's done more than 20 boston marathons. >> yeah, about 20. he doesn't even keep track. about 75 total. he does say his wife thinks he's crazy to keep doing this, but he is taking it relatively easy, running with a pack of family and friends. >> is there something special about the boston marathon? >> the fans in boston are extraordinary. they know so much about the race. they have such an appreciation of the race's history. and they are so, so supportive out there. there's no other place like boston on marathon monday. >> and you know something about running a marathon. >> i do. i ran boston in 2006. it didn't go all that well. i ran the half in 2005, had a great half. >> yeah. >> so was emboldened, figured i'd run the full, and i collapsed about 18 or 19 miles in. >> but you finished. >> but you kept going. >> went to a medical tent, got an i.v., sat there for an hour while they pumped me full of fluids. >> and you were in your 20s. >> i said, i want to go back out. you're right. and i did. >> fire in the belly. >> you want to do it again?

the so-called rain tax, a fee based on the size of your roof, driveway and parking lots. for businesses it's $72 for just over 1,000 square feet of parking lot. when the ten largest counties pass local laws it will raise $15 billion that the epa says the state needs to spend on large scale projects to keep nitrogen storm run from getting into the bay. i'm mike schuh reporting. >> thank you. today a fire in baltimore county is under investigation. this picture was sent into the wjz news room. the flames could be seen billow from the balcony in rose dale yesterday. no word on what started the fire. annapolis's city dock is in for a make over. the grant is part of a $12.6 million project
