but there are pros and cons to both. i only do the standard regimen. because you think it's a better treatment? no, because she practices here, and the--the--the trial's in boston. you know what? why don't i give you the research? you can take it home, read it over and then you can discuss your options. okay? but, um, i have to stress, kitty, that the sooner you make a decision, the better. okay. okay. thank you. travis, i don't care that you work for governor kern. you know the protocol. the senator's the ranking official when it comes to greeting international guests. (travis) nice try, but the governor of california is gonna be at the bottom of those stairs when the prince of wales sets his pretty royal toe on california soil. really? well, then i'd hate to see your face when his royal highness walks straight past her and says hi to the senator because they played golf
2:06 am
together in scotland. (clicks mouse) (baby crying) i didn't know you had a baby. you know, maybe--maybe we can, uh, you know, set up... (increases volume) something with the prince at the hotel, like a photo-op. do i need to call 9-1-1? i think he's hungry. or maybe he's just wet. (screaming continues) scotty! uh, it's-- it's not a baby. yeah, well, whatever it is, deal with it. look, i'm glad we settled this issue. (beep) uh, you know what? we didn't settle any... (crying stops) what are you doing? that was important. you keep insisting we can manage a baby with two careers, so i thought we'd have a little dress rehearsal. well, you know what? your timing sucks. i have this visit and two press releases to get out today. yeah, well, you know what? i have tonight's menu to prepare. and that crying baby? someone needs to change his diaper. uh-oh. it's--it's a poopy one. you made your point. we'll talk about this later.

so tell me something-- that's what we're bidding on? mm. 10,000 gallons, if the price stays under $5.25 a gallon. oh! $5.25? nobody's gonna bid $5.25 for that swill. trust me. you take that swill and you add it to our grapes, and you will get a nice bottle of wine. oh, holly, that's short-term thinking. i don't care how cheaply you're gonna sell it. in the long run, it's gonna ruin our brand. (scoffs) you know, how many times do i have to tell you, saul, that we are gonna market under a different label? (music continues) what, old flame? no, just a business acquaintance. saul? i heard a rumor your family had expanded into the wine business. yeah, well, how about that? what about you? how's the cattle business, hmm? it runs itself, saul. this is my new hobby now. great. you know, at our age, it's good to keep, uh, your mind fresh. yeah. oh, sorry. this is holly harper. she's the president of ojai foods. hi. and this gentleman is dennis york. a woman in charge.
2:08 am
(chuckles) well, well. william certainly would have approved. sorry to hear of his passing, by the way. it's a terrible loss. your concern is touching, dennis. (electronic bell chiming) well, good luck with the bidding. nice to meet you, holly harper. let's do it. wow. this is inspiring. there is a whole community of people that have been through this, and they're all really positive. listen, there's a debbiefeelwell from florida, and she says the r-chop was "very doable." she was diagnosed with stage iv lymphoma, and now she's n.e.d.-- no evidence of disease. (gasps) oh, wow. look at this. what? look at this. that's a wedding dress. can you imagine how good that would look on rebecca? honey, i thought we were-- we were researching treatment options, kitty. well, we were, but now i'm researching wedding dresses. oh, my god. oh, my god. look at this one. look at that.
2:09 am
i mean, that almost makes me want to get married again. it's really beaut-- honey, you heard the doctor. you have to make a decision now. i will, but--but, um, we're going shopping, and i need to help rebecca find a wedding dress. all right. all right. well, are you gonna tell her what's going on? yes. yes, of course, right when she's zipping up her carolina herrera. i know you don't want anyone to know about this yet, kitty, but everyone here talks about how important it is to have a strong support system. mom, you need to get offline. i will figure this out. i-i will make the right decision, and i promise you, i will be n.e.d. no evidence of disease. yes, never enough doughnuts, never enough dresses, never... i love you. mm. (keys jangle) (hums) ha ha! she went shopping? yes. look, i-i understand she--she needs a distraction, but, robert, there really isn't time for that.
2:10 am
do you know what her prognosis is? 55%. yeah, with r-chop, but i just got off the phone with the head researcher in boston, and he says his treatment will give her an extra 5% chance. yes, i read the study, but the-- but the sample population was only a few hundred patients. that's really not enough to tell, and the side effects, there's heart damage-- that was a woman who was 65 years old with a history of diabetes and smoked. kitty's young and healthy. blood clots, it can devastate her immune system. now if the r-chop doesn't work or--or she has a relapse-- i'm not waiting for a relapse. and i don't care what the side effects are as long as she lives. i just don't think this is right for her at this time, and she'd be 3,000 miles away. well, i'd go with her, obviously. oh, and--and when would you be there, exactly? you're running for governor. who would take care of evan? her family is here. i am here. but if the best treatment is there, then that's where she needs to be. if i thought that were true, i would be helping her pack right now. i don't think it's right for her. look, she is my wife. (scoffs) okay? we're gonna do whatever's best for both of us.
2:11 am
oh, no, no. what, are you gonna play the husband card, robert? i don't even know what that means. up until recently, you have been completely m.i.a. what, you're gonna swoop in now and save the day? is that it? i just want her well. listen to me, robert. i don't care if you're senator or governor or the king of siam. you've not shown me that her life is safe in your hands. you don't get to call the shots. well, i'm sorry you feel that way. but you are right about one thing-- the only person that's gonna be calling the shots is kitty. yes. she is.

$?$? . uh, i'll leave as soon as i can. okay, dear. bye. so that guy that just stole 10,000 gallons of wine right out from under us? well, it turns out he was indicted on felony charges years ago for price fixing at voley foods. didn't william work at voley back then? so what are you getting at? (chuckles) come on, saul. don't be cagey with me. this guy just sabotaged a major component of my business plan. right. he knew william, he's undermining us. so what are we dealing with here, hmm? what do you know? yes, they worked together at voley foods. they started together, they shared accounts.
2:24 am
obviously, they were very good at it and decided they wanted to be on their own, and they needed capital. let me guess-- they stole from the company. there was an investigation. maybe william kept his hands clean, maybe he saw it coming. i don't know. but he ended up testifying, and dennis ended up doing five years. (scoffs) why does this not surprise me? that's all i know, and right now i have to be somewhere. where are you going? i mean, if this is some ancient grudge match, then we've gotta talk about this. that can wait. this can't. (groans and taps table) (sighs) maybe this is about sarah. okay, everyone, here she is. hey. hi, guys. i'm, um, i'm so sorry to--to keep you waiting. what's going on? oh, no. are you guys getting a divorce? no, no. no, no, no, no. no, look, i'm so sorry. i-i have gross anatomy class tomorrow morning, and my lab partner has a patent, so... well, um, it-it's--it's about me.
2:25 am
(crying) oh, god. (whispers) kevin. kevin, are you crying? (normal voice) oh, kevin, don't. (sobs) (crying) saul. saul? saul, why are-- why are you crying? i had to tell someone. well, somebody better tell us. i'm starting to panic here. uh, yeah. it's okay. it's--it's--it's-- i-i... i have cancer. it's, uh, it's lymphoma. it's in--it's in stage iii, which--which isn't the worst. (whispers) kitty. um, it just--it just means that it--it's spread a little bit. but it's not in her bone marrow. no, and--and my oncologist is-- is very positive about the prognosis. it's just a matter now of deciding what treatment to do. chemo or radiation? well, r-chop probably, which is chemo. it's the standard of care. well, maybe. i-- she's also been accepted into a clinical trial in boston. i have? yeah, i made a call. robert, i asked you not to make that call. (rebecca) you may be going to boston? wh--no. i-i--well, i may-- i don't know. i don't-- i don't know what i'm gonna do. mom, can you please sit down? (whispers) i'm sorry.
2:26 am
i'm--i'm just gonna take some time and--and, uh, figure out what to do. um, but, you know, l-let's just have a normal night. yeah. right. yeah. it's gonna be-- it's gonna be fine, and--and mom made some turkey meat loaf, and... yeah. come on. let's--let's all sit down and eat. um, robert, i could, uh, use your help in the kitchen. i can't believe you made that call. i asked you not to start throwing your weight around. hey, i'm gonna keep our options open. they are kitty's options to decide. you just told everybody she was doing r-chop. i did not. i said probably. crap. nora, look, she wasn't accepted into this trial because i made a call. she-- you don't know that. you would only know that had you not made the call. she was accepted because they think it's gonna save her life. well, of course they would say that. they're the ones running the study. look, i started a cancer center. i happen to know the politics of clinical trials. and i know the politics of this family, and you don't want her in boston
2:27 am
because you want her here with you. oh, god, do you think i would jeopardize the health of my daughter for geography? jeez! (basket clatters) don't touch those buns. so how's the, uh, surrogacy going? well, you know... coming along. mm. good. i've got garlic rolls. a few of them fell on the ground... mmm. but 10-second rule. they'll be fine. they'll be fine. oh, no, thanks. thanks, mom. oh, so you're reading it, huh? see? i better go into the kitchen and see what's going on. i think she needs some help. (robert) ...she practically threw up the lining of her stomach. (nora) well, that's a hell of a lot better than what might happen to her if she decides to be a lab rat. guys... rolls. (nora speaking indistinctly) stage iii-- h-how bad is that? i mean, will she have to be hospitalized? i know nothing about oncology. you're a med student. in basic anatomy. oh, god. i dragged her dress shopping today. you know what she kept talking about? how we could all be hit by a bus tomorrow. (sighs) i mean, she was right. we all have been.
2:28 am
(sighs) your poor mom. oh, my mom. look, uh, why don't we go help her with dinner, okay? yeah. blood clots in the lungs and heart failure or nausea and hair loss-- pick one. i-i can't pick one, nora. it's impossible to-- pick one, saul. pick one. saul. saul. saul, the study we're talking about increases her chances of beating this, period. she can beat it with r-chop without jeopardizing her health any further. and besides that, her family is here. her support system is here. right. right. i agree with nora on this, robert. of course you do, because it's always a package deal with you guys... what? that's crazy, robert. everybody together, no matter what. but this isn't thanksgiving that we're talking about. don't you dare to talk to me like--don't patronize me. all right, all right-- i'm not patronizing you. there is an agenda... i'm not talking about thanksgiving. we're talking-- (robert and nora arguing indistinctly) you know what i just thought of? i mean, i-i could cook for you. i could leave a big cooler outside your door with fresh meals in it every day, and you wouldn't have to worry about that. that's really sweet, scotty, but you know what? i'm not gonna be an invalid. i'm gonna be able to cook.
2:29 am
but i-i have, um, i have the answer for you guys-- live-in nanny. i'm sorry, i can't do this. look, i know you want to talk about meat loaf and babies, but i-i can't sit here and pretend everything's normal. i'm so sorry. (door opens) (door closes) i'm sorry. i-i feel like i should talk to him. yeah, it's okay. i-i understand. y-you should go get him. okay. look, mom's right. that's all they talk about in rehab, is your support system. (robert) kitty doesn't have an addiction. (scotty) you know what? kitty's alone out there. you know, robert, if it is such a good treatment, why is it not the standard of care? (saul) that's right. and--and tell me, why hasn't the american cancer association come out and supported it or the f.d.a. approved it? why? because the f.d.a. won't update its protocols and streamline their approvals. oh, for goodness sakes. you have no idea how many drugs that could save people's lives are just stuck in bureaucratic red tape. you don't know which one is which. but what about a.z.t.? they approved that in seven days. (nora) exactly. exactly. after huge political pressure. no one's marching on capitol hill for lymphoma. (robert) thank you, kevin.
2:30 am
(kevin) she should have the most aggressive treatment possible. kevin, aggressive could kill her. no, no, cancer could kill her. aggressive could kill-- (justin) mom. mom. guys. what? wh-- oh, kitty. i'm sorry. i'm--i'm so sorry. i mean, i know--i know this was just such a-a-a shock, but, you know, all this-- all this fighting is--is--is not gonna help me, and it's--it's not gonna help anything. you know, i just, um, i just really wanted to have a-a normal dinner, you know? and it was so--it was so crazy of me to think that we could just eat and talk and--and be normal, because, of course, y-you're right. you're right, kev. there's--there's nothing normal about... are you all right? yeah. yeah. i just... oh, god. i'm tired. i'm gonna get your things. yeah, i think i-- i think i need to-- i need to go home. and, mom, i'm so sorry. this was just such a bad idea.

3:02 am
an amazing california masterpiece. this is high above the city hidden from prying eyes but boasting panoramic views. this hide away has been renovated for the 21st century. >> the house is just over 2,800 square feet of living space but another 800 square feet of outside decks attached to it. 13,000 square foot lot with a great poolside to it as well as flat area. it's three bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms with a downstairs area that can be used as a master suite or an entertainment room, as well. >> discover what makes this the perfect property for a glamorous gala. >> this house is hollywood hills living at its best. there is nothing quite like being in the hills above l.a., enjoying the light, the feeling that you're in the middle of everything, but very, very far away from it.
3:03 am
you're surrounded by celebrity homes. you're surrounded by amazing, amazing places. this place is absolutely unique. >> get the inside story from the owner and the top hollywood designer who helped develop this amazing estate as they explain the inspiration behind the eco-friendly and eye-popping decor. >> this came from the architect himself. >> tour a one-of-a-kind tinseltown treasure. it starts right now on "beautiful homes and great estates. "12346789 . " >> concealed in the idyllic surroundings of the hollywood hills, the facade of this home
3:04 am
only hints at the grandeur found within. it's an intriguing structure that also manages to be unassuming in a neighborhood filled with eclectic design. >> this home is on a street called multiview drive off mulholland drive in the hollywood hills in los angeles. it's amazing on this street. it has a number of architecturally signature homes, this house is amazing. it looks out on a beautiful view on universal studios and san fernando valley looking eastward. >> but the views of universal city and the valley beyond are just the beginning. from this hollywood hills perch one can witness the diverse array of neighboring homes. >> it's a really great kind of quirky neighborhood. you've got 10,000 square foot houses next to amazing
3:05 am
architectural houses right next door to this house is a schindler house. you've got a great mixture. you feel up in this area because you've got winding streets, a lot of greenery, you feel a million miles away from the city except the incredible views and the feel the city is all around you, but far enough away. >> this estate has its own hollywood pedigree. >> the former owner of the house was one of the producers/writers of "the mr. magoo show" back in the '50s or '60s. he lived here many, many years. i acquired the house after he passed away. it's got a great, old hollywood history to it. as you walk into the house, you see this amazing atrium with this very, very classic stairway that goes up to the second level of the house. once you enter the house, you're in the expansive first level
3:06 am
which consists primarily of the large living room, dining room, kitchen area. you also have an amazing feel of the view from every room in the house, from the moment that you enter the space. from there you move on. you've got a beautiful art nook for sculptures. then beyond there you have a really nice secluded office that gives you privacy away from the rest of the house, but you feel connected to it and you've got the deck access, as well. my inspiration for the design for this home came from the architect himself. the indoor/outdoor theme, the simplicity, elegance and architecture and surroundings. >> though the style was a practical choice, it provided the basis for novel and adventurous design decisions.
3:07 am
>> the architecture of the home is they were trying to economyize on space and maximize the square footage and views. they were on steel frames which was well engineered allowing the post to carry the weight of the house and allow for much more open space than you see in traditional homes. the artwork was a huge inspiration. the stairway had an art gallery stairway. i was able to handpick through an amazing selection of pop art that showcases very well in this house. >> one of the most appealing aspects of this hollywood hide away is the open-air layout which emphasizes the feeling of
3:08 am
indoor/outdoor living, most notably in the atrium. >> one of the most striking features as you walk into the living space is the fireplace. not only cantilvers throughout the room but provides a real focal point and setting the sty style. >> one of the main goals in the renovation of this estate was to make it as eco-friendly as possible. >> most everything we attached to the home during the model, we tried to use as green material as we can. we used recycled glass throughout the main level. we used cork and 100% biodegradable wool carpeting in the bet rooms. light fixtures have recycled content. the walls are recycled.
3:09 am
all of the windows and glass in the house we replaced with dual-glazed insulated windows and cuts out an noenormous amou of heat. the appliances are high-efficiency energy star appliances. i think the most striking aspect of the kitchen are the cabinets that are set up on the vintage legs. the cabinets with the sliding glass doors that sort of evokes the period of the home. >> even though it projects openness, the home is a totally secluded oasis. >> the noise of the city, the feel of the city, everything else, one of the things that was done by charles and rod that really, to me, accentuate that is the feeling that not only do you have this amazing
3:10 am
architectural space, you also have materials and different design aspects that really take advantage of green technology now, that you wouldn't have been able to do even a few years ago. >> a lot of the fixtures are suspended. the fireplace orb, the light fixtures, the desk in the office. i love suspending things. by getting rid of legs, getting rid of the obstructions, you do get a sense that things are floating. in a post and beam house, it's wonderful to float things because it's all about the outside. it's all about the view. it's all about a sense of spacious interaction. some of the recurring themes in the house are the vintage hair pin legs in the flat metal which is as they used to be. then i juxtaposed that with some of the shinier newer metals. you see the chrome, powdered-coated aluminum. i wanted to update the house
3:11 am

this 2800 square foot residence nestled in the hollywood hills is an ideal spot for a party. >> this is one of the greatest entertainment homes i've ever been in. we've got a killer space, beautiful fireplace and you've got an amazing flow for party guests, spaces to converse. we had a couple of parties here that have been amazing. there must be 15 or 20 different small spaces within this large space people can sit and chat, enjoy each other's company. it's amazing the flow this house has and how it can work, especially in a party atmosphere. perhaps the most alluring area is the massive and stylish
3:22 am
balcony. >> this house is an incredible entertainer's house. one of the spaces you notice is when you go off the deck off the main part of the house. a very large space almost like another room. you have the entire city as your view. one of the most remarkable aspects of this house was the railings that were originally designed by beth and henson that give you a sense of the openness of the house. that delineate the sense of space without obstructing the view. >> a favorite spot of mine is the media room. it's the lower level of the house. it's a great hangout party room. >> the deluxe media roam boasts its own private balcony with a special feature. >> the deck off the media room with the jacuzzi, you feel like you're in a fancy spa somewhere. it has a view of the city through the trees and it really feels like a remote place.
3:23 am
>> it is extremely functional for the person who likes entertaining, that has a need for a sense of privacy but the openness of the indoor/outdoor, of the views, being part of nature part of the city from a distance. because of the different levels, being able to entertain or host other people and have a sense of privacy from one level to the other. what i love most about this home is not just the striking architecture from the outside, but the way we designed the indoor/outdoor theme and concealed it from the streets.

afghan fighters reported, hearing bin laden's voice over a two-way radio urging his men to fight, then nothing. the search stalled as the war with iraq was heating up.
3:32 am
sending audio and videotaped messages as apparent proof that he was still alive and in control. the manhunt continued. repeatedly the trail ran cold around the remote border areas around pakistan and afghanistan. barack obama won the presidency in 2008, in part, by promising to pull u.s. troops out of iraq and turn the military's attention back towards afghanistan. >> we must take out osama bin laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights. >> reporter: in the end, it was a promise president obama was able to keep. t.j. winick, abc news, new york. >> and of course this news spreading around the globe in the last few hours. and thousands of americans are gathering around the nation to share their joy over bin laden's death. this was the scene here at times square here in new york as chanted and waved flags. >> american flags when are so prevalent. at ground zero many were waving those flags and take pictures in the early morning hours. the group broke out into
3:33 am
spontaneous jubilant cheers and song and including renditions of "i'm proud to be an american," the national anthem. this was president obama earlier at the white house. >> tonight i can report to the american people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda, and a terrorist who is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children. let me say to the families who lost loved ones on 9/11 that we have never forgotten your loss nor wavered in our commitment to see that we do whatever it takes to prevent another attack on our shores. >> now here are the details as far as we have heard that they went down. high-level officials had meetings all day at the white house while waiting for the results of the operation. people inside the situation room describe the wait as incredibly tense. mr. obama first learned of the tentative identification of bin laden's body in midafternoon. >> jake tapper has been at the
3:34 am
white house as the story unfolded. >> they got the lead last august, and president obama said that he had told when he started as president, he told his cia director, leon panetta, that he wanted the capture or killing of osama bin laden to be the number one priority when it came to the fight against al qaeda, and then in august, they got a lead. they followed the thread through. he gave the order. and u.s. troops were told from our reporter on the ground, we're told it was an on the ground operation in this one mansion, this one compound, and it was a successful mission. no civilians were killed. no u.s. troops were killed and the u.s. has bin laden's body. there's jubilation here inside of the white house, outside the white house, tourists and others have gathered outside. they're singing the national anthem, chanting "usa." some of them are singing "na, na, na, na, good-bye" to bin laden. point out, george, that 9/11 was bin laden's most devastating and deadly attack but other attacks
3:35 am
linked to al qaeda including the 1998 bombings of the u.s. embassies in tanzania and kenya, where more than 200 individuals were killed and of course, the bombing of the "uss cole." i think 17 service members were killed in 2000, and those families have got to be experiencing the same thing that the families of the victims of 9/11 are feeling which is a great sense of closure, a great sense of relief, and a real happiness that the u.s. has not taken it's eye off of the ball throughout the bush administration and continues bot obama administration. >> the white house says bin laden's body is being treated in accordance with islamic practice and tradition. the intention is to bury bin laden at sea in order to avoid the creation of a shrine. >> and we're told u.s. officials are now considering showing pictures of bin laden's body in order to prove that the al qaeda leader is really dead. >> and all of this, it is of course important to remember that the u.s. fight against terrorism is nowhere near over.

just because bin laden is no longer here. about 100,000 americans are still fighting in afghanistan. >> and our mike boettcher knows many of them and he joins us now from kabul, afghanistan. and now tell us how the troops are reacting so far. we are to imagine it's very jubilant there. >> reporter: well, peggy, the reaction i've been getting from troops has come online to me. troops are happy to see this happen. they believe their sacrifice means something. and this war that has gone on ten years now. but i have to say that i've just been in contact with a top u.s. officer here who tells me the reaction from afghanistan will be muted. nothing official is planned. after all, a war is still being waged here. and they do not want to ignite any protests from afghans here in this country by showing celebrations of u.s. troops on bases. so they're going to keep it low-key, because this war is going on. as of may 1st, which was yesterday, the taliban announced
3:37 am
that they were beginning their spring offensive. this will take the form most likely of many, many suicide bombers around the country. south of the capital yesterday, there was a report of a 12-year-old boy who detonated a suicide vest. killing several people. that was south of kabul. there had been reports from pakistan and intelligence reports here that 350, at least, suicide bombers had been trained in pakistan to unleash their attacks here against u.s. forces, civilian targets as well, civilians who support the afghan government, u.s.-supported government here. so look for the reaction to remain muted here because we are in high alert for any sort of retaliation. >> sure, understandably. real quick here. we don't want to run out of time. we know that you've been on the front lines there, so many soldiers have, men and women. this has got to be a huge morale
3:38 am
boost for them. as you said, it will be modest but this has got to give them a big boost. >> reporter: absolutely. my son carlos and i have been embedded since september in all sections of afghanistan. two days ago i was on the pakistan border in kunar province. we took a lot of casualties up there, the u.s. troops did a the unit i was covering but they had set the taliban back in this region in that area. and i can tell you, i know how they're reacting. they are leaving the country right now to be replaced by another unit, and i am sure they are incredibly happy about this news. >> absolutely. thank you, mike, for that live report. appreciate that. and again, important to remember here, osama may be killed now but there are still many, many men behind him who want to do harm to this country so this is a big step but it's not over. it's just one chapter that's over. all right when come back. this morning the hunt of osama

3:42 am
celebrations at news. for nearly ten years osama bin laden was the most wanted man in the entire world but hunt for him started before the horrible events of september 11th. >> and before this successful mission that killed the al qaeda leader, the u.s. tried many times before to assassinate him. here more is martha raddatz. she has details of what ended up being a ten-year and very painstaking pursuit of this mass murderer. >> reporter: in the three years before september 11th, the u.s. tried repeatedly to kill bin laden. august 1998, the clinton administration sent cruise missiles to attack afghan terrorist training camps two days after two u.s. embassies
3:43 am
were in bombed in africa. but it took the ship-fired missiles hours to strike the training camps. and by the time they did, bin laden had already left. the attack had an unintended side effect. escaping the u.s. onslaught only enhanced bin laden's reputation among terrorists. february 1999, bin laden is sighted at a desert training camp in helmand province, afghanistan. he remained there for more than a week. but there was a hunting camp nearby used by officials of united arab emirates, a u.s. ally. >> policymakers were concerned about the danger that a strike might kill an emirati prince or other senior officials who might be with bin laden or close by. >> reporter: there was another sighting and another missed opportunity that spring. clinton administration officials defended the decision to hold back. >> if we're going to kill
3:44 am
people, innocent people, as well as carrying out this operation, let's be as sure as we can that we've got the right target, the right information and minimize, if we can, killing innocent people. >> reporter: during this period the u.s. repeatedly slipped cia agents and military special operations teams into afghanistan. agents set up electronic surveillance of roads and villages which was still active just days before september 11th. but al qaeda members stayed one step ahead and used technology to their advantage. monitoring internet chat rooms and anonymous e-mails became part of an ongoing, highly sensitive intelligence operation. >> what we have to strive is to be as innovative and as creative as the terrorists are. almost to think out of the box. >> reporter: the hunt for bin laden became america's top priority the day after 9/11. >> there is an old poster out west, as i recall, that said "wanted, dead or alive." >> reporter: u.s.-led forces
3:45 am
began months of withering air and ground assaults at al qaeda's strongholds in afghanistan. special forces spread throughout the country, acting on realtime intelligence. osama bin laden was a man on the run. mid-december, tora bora, afghan fighters reported hearing bin laden's voice over a two-way radio. urging his men to fight. the u.s. seemed certain that bin laden was cornered. but when u.s., afghan, and british troops finally fought their way to the caves of tora bora, they'd found loads of ammunition, bags of al qaeda documents, but they did not find bin laden. u.s. intelligence officials said bin laden and his top people were allowed to slip away by many of the same warlords the u.s. was paying to kill him. bin laden was apparently paying
3:46 am
more. >> i mean, people have been bribing people in afghanistan for centuries. >> reporter: march 2002, gardez, afghanistan. american special forces moved in on what they believed would be a small pocket of al qaeda fighters. they were met with an ambush. the battle became the fiercest resistance the u.s. forces faced during the war. when it was over, no bin laden. in the years since, he's believed to have moved back and forth over the remote border between afghanistan and pakistan. the u.s. dropped leaflets to make sure local villagers knew about the $25 million reward, but bin laden was hiding among friends. >> osama, if he's there, would be there as a guest. and the code of the people there is that if a guest is living with them, they will protect him with their lives.
3:47 am
>> reporter: even with today's news, the war on terrorism is not over. the terrorist organization bin laden created is designed to survive even if he does not. martha raddatz, abc news. >> and someone out there may be asking how do we know that this is osama bin laden here. fascinating tidbit here, his sister was in a boston hospital suffering from cancer. when she died they subpoenaed her brain and that's what they used to check the dna to make sure that it was really osama bin laden. >> because the dna has been checked and confirmed that this is in fact him and talk and saying we want to see the proof. >> very interesting right now. we want to take a look at ground zero. we'll be talking about that coming up in a moment. this is a place where many people are celebrating now. take a look at this. just moments ago. people have scaled this light post with the american flag. a very prevalent sign all around ground zero after 9/11.
3:48 am
>> absolutely, absolutely. a scene of just utter despair almost ten years ago. and now tonight a spot let's turn over this log. yeah! both: whoa! i like the big black ones. i like the brown wiggly ones. mmm. i like the green crunchy ones myself. whoa. explore nature. there are surprises everywhere. go to
3:49 am
since 9/11, the area where those twin towers once stood became known of course as ground zero. a memorial to almost 3,000 lives lost on that day. >> and when the news broke that osama bin laden had been killed, that solemn memorial became the center of celebration. chris cuomo was there this morning. >> reporter: the cars have
3:50 am
disheveled the streets down here. kind of surrendering to the moment. the local police are telling me it's not worth trying to clear people out. they need to have this moment. there are now about 3,000, 4,000 people that are filling the streets down here at church and vc. one of the most famous corners of the old world trade center. and you're seeing the whole range here. there are victims' families who are come down, people who are on the phone, they're crying. they're calling people to come down here and gather. you're hearing things like "we're all family" tonight. yes, you are hearing that reserved hostility towards osama bin laden and a lot of the ugliness that goes along with that. that feeling that there has been justice but there is not nearly not as much of that as the celebration. right now i'm look at a dozen flags waving. it's not unlike -- it's as one distant family told me.
3:51 am
everything become anew because of this. that said it's still early. all of these people seem to be on the phone telling people to come here. the question is, what if he comes later on? but right now, there's a lot of love. everybody feels like they were a victim of 9/11. everybody knows somebody who was lost and i'm running into people here in the crowd who i know. and we share people in common who we lost and people like that, this was the moment that has been very long in the coming. >> and that's chris cuomo saying there most everybody feels like they are a victim of 9/11. really, every time you go through the airport checkpoint you feel like a victim but to kind of put it into numbers. the number of people who lost a spouse or partner in the attack, 1,600 in '09. the estimated number of children who loss's a parent, 3,051. >> it's amazing to see that celebration. at times square and also ground zero as well.

well, finally there's n we, finally there's well, finally there's no question nat death of osama bin laden gives closure to the friends and family of the almost 3,000 people killed on 9/11. >> deborah burlingame is the sister of charles burlingame. he was the pilot of the hijacked american airlines flight 77. that was flown into the pentagon. and as you can imagine, she has been waiting for this day for ten years. and here's what she told abc news after she learned of bin laden's death. >> i got the call from my brother brad, who was the person who called me on the morning of 9/11, to tell me that our brother chick had been killed in his airplane crashing into the pentagon. and so it was very fitting that i get this call from brad tonight. and i -- i have a million questions. because you know for the families, this has been -- this man and his minions have haunted for almost the last ten years, and so this -- it's true,
3:56 am
this is a close of a very big chapter but we are worried going forward. we worry because al qaeda has metastasized and so many al qaeda affiliates. tonight the way i rooted for the president on that day because we are one country and i think that our military deserves -- deserve the credit that he gave them tonight. i was very happy to hear him say that. because these guys have wanted him so bad. i mean, i'm talking about bin laden. and so i was thrilled that they could do an up close and personal attack rather than getting him from the skies with a predator. the american people have been magnificent through this. they've been very, very supportive. they've never forgotten 9/11. and so i wish i were there with them. >> usa! usa! usa! usa! usa!
