6:04 pm
there's going to be a reach out to people that we have worked with that may not be public knowledge that they cooperated with it, and those countries are going to be told this may be disclosed and could be compromised as well as people we may have listened in on to say look, this is going to come out too. and here it is in contact and let's try and move on. so this is a gift that keeps on giving and giving. >> jeff: john miller, thank you very much. a reminder you can see john's interyou have with former deputy director of the cia mike morell on "60 minutes" at 7:00 p.m., 6, central. tuesday marks the first anniversary of superstorm sandy. today new jersey governor chris christie responded to critics who charged the pace of recovery is too slow. he blamed the federal government. christie told the associated press, quote, to the victims i would say you're right t is too slow. and i wish the federal government would allow us the flexibility to get you the aid more quickly. sandy also slammed new york city where plenty of rebuilding still needs to be
