>> i'm about to, sir. did you guys have any plans? is the whole "john king usa" staff going out? >> unfortunately on my tab. i think so. hope you come back tomorrow. we'll have the latest on the terror investigation. new plans to boycott arizona because of its new plans for immigration. campbell brown next. hi there, everybody. major new developments today in the times square bomb plot. the suspect, faisal shahzad continues being questioned by the country's top intelligence experts at this hour. the trail already leading directly to pakistan. one pakistani official telling officials that shahzad met with the pakistan leader. are they targeting americans on our own soil. one of the most disturbing
8:01 pm
aspects of this story is how close shahzad came to escaping. the tsa moved pretty quickly plugging some of the holes in the no fly list. i'll ask michael chernoff what else needs to be done. also tonight, the oil spill cleanup off the gulf coast. we have the latest pictures of that four story dome on the way out to the rig. but will it get there in time to make a difference. also the massive recall of children's tylenol. what you should do right now to protect your kids. we'll talk about that as well. let's go right to our cheat sheet for all of today's top stories, the mash-up. the gulf oil spill is one of the biggest stories in the country right now. network correspondents have been along the shoreline all day trying to get a good look at a giant funnel meant to cap the damaged rig. these are live pictures. take a look. >> this containment dome that you've been watching, the big white thing, four stories high,
8:02 pm
70 tons, is making its way to that big leak. >> tomorrow, bp plans to send down the containment dome to cover one of the two remaining leaks. by monday, a pipe could carry oil from the dome to a vessel on the surface. this has never been tried before. at 5,000 feet under the sea. >> the fishermen believe this is chemical disperse ants. today, bp announced it's no longer going to use chemical dispersants under the sea. they're going to stop. >> it is endless. >> as bad as it looked, it was about to get worse. >> this is something we didn't expect to see. it's a sea turtle. >> we're going to keep watching the story and bring you new details coming up later in the hour. our top international story tonight comes from mahmoud ahmadinejad. he said pretty outrageous things over the years but take a listen to what he told george stephanopoulos today about the
8:03 pm
whereabouts of osama bin laden. >> if you did know that osama bin laden was in tehran, would you show him hospitality? >> i heard that osama bin laden is in washington, d.c. washington, d.c. >> no, you didn't. >> yes, i did. he's there. >> you deny cats gorically he's in tehran today? >> rest assured that he's in washington. i think there's a high chance he's there. >> i don't agree, but thank you for your time, mr. president. >> ahmadinejad also insisted that iran will not back down on its nuclear program saying "we know how to defend ourselves." our top political story tonight, signs that sea party candidates may not be the voters' cup of tea. two hard fought primaries yesterday went to mainstream republican candidates. ohio's race yet to be decided. the republican establishment not
8:04 pm
breathing a sigh of relief just yet. take a listen. >> three big states held primaries last night. those allegedly angry voters could have stormed the polls in droves and thrown out the bums. >> the key republican races, there were two in indiana. the incumbents won. the margin of victory was more narrow, but the tea party movement did not throw the bums out as you said. how much muscle are they going to have come november. it seems more successful at forcing retirements than getting voters to the ballot box. >> a big name announcing his retirement tonight. david obey, chairman of the house appropriations committee, leaving after 41 years in the house of representatives. >> and a sign of just how tough things are for incumbents, the chairman of the national senatorial committee, said today, "thank goodness i'm not running this time." the story people buzzing
8:05 pm
about comes out of the heading out of the mouths of babes. elizabeth hasselbeck took some advice from her 5-year-old daughter and apologized about erin andrews who is competing on "dancing with the stars." >> i'm sitting there with grace, my 5-year-old. she said mommy, why do you look so sad. i said, well, grace, today, mommy hurt someone's feelings. even though i must focus on the detestable criminal who's behind bars who has made her life a living hell and is in jail, i ended up hurting her. i mean, in some way, if i'm him, i could have waited 12 weeks and seen this a little bit less without the prison time. >> thankfully, she's five, she said why don't you just call erin and tell her you're sorry.
8:06 pm
>> you'll recall andrews was the victim of a peeping tom. he is now serving a 30 month sentence. that brings us to the punch line. it's from jimmy kimmel. he had fun with laura bush. >> the bush twins showed up too. jenna bush provided maybe the most candid moment of the interview when she talked about what kind of music her mother listened to. >> if you came to our ranch, if my parents turn on music, old country usually or some of my mom is a secret rastafarian, bob marle marley. >> my kind of place. >> that is the mash-up tonight. next, what we are learning about tonight's big news. a terror suspect, faisal shahzad's alleged taliban connection. cnn has been talking to

8:08 pm
8:09 pm
breaking news right now as times square terror suspect, fi advertise faisal shahzad continues to talk to officials. we learned about the possible motive of the attempted attack.
8:10 pm
shahzad nearly slipped through the cracks and escaped to the middle east. first senior homelands security correspondent jeanne meserve brings us up to speed on the investigation. i understand you've -- >> a photograph from dawn news shows he went through immigration in july 2009. according to an official, on july 7th, he was driven to peshawar and on to waziristan where he is believed to meet with one or more taliban leaders. mohammed rehan, the militant group has strong ties to the taliban and child. rehan was taken into custody on tuesday. officials say at this point, there is nothing definitive
8:11 pm
connects shahzad to any extremist group. >> we are investigating those, but as to where that investigation takes us, it's still too early to make that judgment. >> reporter: a federal law enforcement official says there's no indication that shahzad had any associates here in the united states. he appears to have prepared and placed the bomb in times square on his own. one component, m 88 fire works were purchased from the phantom fireworks store in northeastern pennsylvania. he spent about $100 eight weeks ago. >> nothing that we sell that would make any kind of impact. the only thing remotely connected would be a fuse, but our fuse, the safety fuse burns so slowly that it would not be very effective. so honestly, i think this fellow was barking up the wrong tree when he thought these fire crackers would do something. >> reporter: just how close were
8:12 pm
authorities to losing him? according to an administration official, shahzad was added to the no fly list 12:30 monday afternoon. nine minutes later a message went out to air carriers advising them there was a special add to the list, but shahzad's name was not caught by emirates airlines at 6:30 when he made his reservation while driving to the airport or at 7:35 when he showed up at the counter and bought his ticket with cash because the airline had not yet updated its no fly list. to close that loophole, the tsa is now requiring that airlines update no fly lists within two hours of getting a special notification from tsa. jeanne meserve is with us now live. you received new information about a possible motive for shahzad. give us your sense of what you're hearing? >> this is something that will sound familiar to everyone. i just talked to someone who's familiar with this investigation who says that shahzad felt that
8:13 pm
islam was under attack and that was his motivation, campbell. >> you are also learning, i know, there was a specific reason that the tsa didn't call the airlines to alert them about shahzad. what was it? >> well, an administration official tells me that this is something they've done in the past, that in addition to putting out an alert saying we have an addition to the no fly list, they have picked up the phone and said be on the lookout for this person. the tsa did not notify all airlines at the request of the fbi for investigative reasons. i did reach out to the fbi for a response. richard cole co says we do not comment on specific investigations or techniques. one can surmise this was tightly held information. they did not want this name leaking out so they were being quite careful about who they distributed it to. in the end there was another trap in the system that did catch this individual. >> all right, jeanne meserve for
8:14 pm
us tonight. thanks very much. >> just a short time ago, i spoke with former homelands security secretary, michael chernoff and asked him about whether these new no fly rules would have stopped him from getting on the airplane. take a listen? >> the problem in this case is that the no fly list is still operated by the airlines and not by tsa. there's a program called secure flight which relaunched a few years ago, although it was delayed by the airlines, that will, when it is fully implemented, eliminate this problem, because it will no longer be up to the airlines to deny boarding but it will be up to tsa. i should point out, campbell, there was a backup here which did work, which is customs and border protection's ability to look at the manifest before the plane leaves. it's that backup that's a very important part of the entire system. >> it was a crucial part in this case, certainly. >> right. >> we also learned today that a
8:15 pm
high value interrogation group is handling the interrogation. what does that mean, exactly? what additional powers or skills does that group have? >> well, i think the purpose of this is to make sure that when decisions are made about how to interrogate somebody, what to what kind of techniques to use, frankly, whether somebody should be mirandized or not, you're getting input from people who are skilled representing all the agencies that have relevant information to bear. that means the intelligence community as well as the law enforcement community. that avoids the problem where the law enforcement people do their own thing without considering the possible impact on intelligence gathering. that's a good thing. >> so give me your take, based on what we know, and we don't know that much, but we do know some about how he's been interrogated so far. how do you think it's being handled? >> we don't know much of.
8:16 pm
i can tell you generally, here's what you want to be able to do. you want to be able to question the person and then check what they are telling you against other information you're getting. if there are discrepancies, you go back and you challenge the person. the issue here isn't is somebody talking, it's whether they're giving you the whole story or whether they're concealing certain facts. that's why you can't treat interrogation as a fast thing. it's got to be something that takes place over a period of time so you can do the cross-checking that is a critical element in evaluating the truthfulness of what you're getting. >> let me go through some of the stuff that we have questions about. investigators right now looking into a theory that would link this attack to the pakistani taliban. if that were the case, this would be the first time that this group has struck against the united states. do you believe that they are behind this, given what we know? >> let me say, first of all, there's a tendency to treat these groups as if there's a
8:17 pm
meaningful difference among them. in fact, they do work together and there's an awful lot of interrelationship between the taliban and al qaeda, for example. they've lived together in the frontier area, they've fought together. what is important, this is yet another example of a warner, someone with u.s. citizenship, going back to pakistan, getting some training, and then being launched against their home country. that is part of the new set of tactics that al qaeda has been working on for the last couple of years. >> how do you protect against that? >> this is very difficult, because they are distribute rel selecting people with no record, they have free access to the united states and they know how to work in the united states and presumably, they're minimizing communications. that means we've got to be looking for other kinds of intelligence indicators. some of that is the awareness of
8:18 pm
the ordinary citizen, like in this case, who sees something anom lus and reports to the police. it's the ability of the police to react quickly. it's the presence of all kinds of additional tools that can be used in order to conduct surveillance or intercept communications. all of these are part of a total strategy that is designed to minimize the risk but also recognized that you cannot guarantee that some of these attacks will not work. >> let me go back to the point you made earlier about his possible connection to the taliban, because there's sort of conflicting reports about whether he was kind of a want to be who inflated his ties to the taliban or al qaeda or whether he was trained in a camp in waziristan by known extremists. the question is, does it, in the end matter either way? what is the significance of this, given that they can obviously both achieve a very similar result? >> i look at it this way.
8:19 pm
i'd say there are three types of operatives we look at. one is the hard core, well trained operative that would be used in a major attack, the kind of thing which happened on 9/11 or which they tried to pull off with the airline plot in 2006. the next level is the person who's brought in, they're not necessarily given access to the core al qaeda, but they are given some basic training and trade craft and launched back to use their western passport. that is perhaps this case, the zazi case. the third category is the person who gets on the internet and gets radicalized, they go off and do what they can accomplish on their own. that was the ft. hood shooting. we're going to have to build a capability to anticipate each of these different kinds of operations in putting together our intelligence program. >> that was of course former homeland security secretary

8:22 pm
as we track the breaking news of a pakistani taliban
8:23 pm
connection and a motive in the times square bomb plot, faisal shahzad is accused of bung willing his way to blow up part of new york city. as amateur it may have been, the case has exposed gaping holes in homeland security, more than eight years after 9/11. jack rice joining us right now, he's joining us along with fran townsend. welcome to both of you. we're learning more and more about this guy's pakistani connections today. he's sworn in as a u.s. citizen. he flies off to pakistan. he may have met with at least one taliban leader that they think at this point. should any of that laid out from what we know have raised red flags in your view? >> this is always easier looking back after an event. i think we ought to be fair about that, but i think this is a real opportunity. there are tens of thousands of citizens, foreigners who are naturalized u.s. citizens.
8:24 pm
we have to see now, looking backwards, what kinds of things we should have been looking for. as you say, one of them that pops out at me, this is a man married with two small children, a mortgage and home. he leaves for months. there may be perfectly innocent reasons. he stays away, the house goes into foreclosure, should the length of that stay triggered our attention. all these things are things we have to go back and try to understand and put in context as we search for others who may be out there having taken advantage of the naturalization process. >> jack, what do you think? is our government up to this? are investigators up to this given what fran laid out here? >> i think about what michael chernoff said. what the secretary talked about were these different levels of operatives who may be out there. he does highlight a problem. you go after the hard liners. those are the guys who are the most dangerous, but it's the low hanging fruit sometimes that are the most difficult because they don't have connections that one
8:25 pm
would expect either on the intelligence or on the criminal domestic or international side. you don't have that either. the problem is is that number of people can be so shockingly large. if we take it one step further, you think about what's going on in britain right now with first generation british citizens of pakistani descent who have had problems of their own, you start broadening this net so wide it's difficult to keep your eyes on all of those potential targets. >> chernoff said that terror groups are deliberately looking for people like this, with clean records, western passports and they're minimizing communication with them. that makes it incredibly hard. >> that's exactly right. what we've seen in the eight years is al qaeda has gone from their goal of strategic, multiple simultaneous, multiple casualty events to smaller.
8:26 pm
you ask yourself why. they got people like adam gadahn, an anwar al awlaki, these guys can have a tremendous impact, and have less likely to get caught if they have clean scans, no reason to trigger the law enforcement system. it makes it much more difficult. what you do need, community policing. local police departments and involved citizens like we saw in the vendor is the sort of court of last resort who can catch them. >> jack, does it scare you, i guess, more or less that as jeanne meserve was explaining to us, that he didn't have any associates working with him inside the u.s.? >> both. it's better in the sense that this may not be a very large, very elaborate and california very extensive operation which could kill a lot of people. that's a positive. the negative for the very same
8:27 pm
operation is it's very difficult. if you have a lone wolf who's absolutely clean, how do you track that guy? do you simply say, okay, it's anybody who's a naturalized citizen? how many of those do we have? do you narrow it down from there and how do you narrow this down? every time you make a mistake and go after people you shouldn't, you create more problems for yourself than you had before. that is also a part of this conversation. >> let me ask both of you what do you think about how much he appears to be talking and telling them? to what degree should we be skeptical? >> one of the things he is reported to have said was that he was working alone. initially, i think investigators were skeptical. they seem to be coming around to the fact he may be telling the truth. i think we should all be skeptical about his statements. he said he was trained in waziristan. we believe he had contacts in pakistan but no one has been able to corroborate that yet. i think when you approach it
8:28 pm
skeptically and look for corroboration. >> if you're going to do an interrogation like this, you assume everything he said isn't true. you have to verify everything. that does take time. it really is about tieing this to some other independent source. the same time, it's important, when you're doing an interrogation like this, you're going to have the nypd involved. you have to bring in the intelligence community. there may be something relevant said by this man that may seem irrelevant to the nypd but may be very important to cia, dod or whatever alphabet soup you want to use. >> dave cone, the commissioner for nypd is a former cia officer and former leader of the intelligence division of the cia so he understands this very well. >> thanks to both of you. appreciate it. coming up, a massive containment dome is right now at

authorities are pinning their hopes tonight on a giant 100 ton steel box now headed to stop the oil, to try to stop the oil that is spewing into the gulf of mexico. bp says that even if successful, the contraption is at best a short term solution to this massive disaster. brooke baldwin has been watching the recovery effort unfold from mississippi. brooke, we know the dome is on its way. i believe that's a live picture we're looking at. give us a sense of when it's supposed to get there and explain what it's to do. >> sure. well, at least some good news, campbell. we have confirmed that this dome that you're looking at is officially out at open sea. it left the port earlier today. it's supposed to take in the neighborhood of 12 to 13 hours just to reach the leak location and then once it does that, the process of sealing this thing on top of the well head will take
8:33 pm
another two days. we're hearing earliest saturday when they start containing the leak. >> that's about what you said containing it. talk to us about the cleanup efforts that are under way. how it's going? >> in terms of cleanup efforts. we have just learned from bp that they're stopping or at least temporarily stopping the use of those dispersants to break up the oil. we need to assess the effectiveness and the impact of that. we're hearing that they're giving the burning another go. they haven't been able to burn it because the weather has been windy and the water has been rough. >> brooke, i know you're not seeing any oil where you are, but there is enormous concern for wildlife in the area. explain that as well? >> absolutely. huge concern. we're hearing somewhere like 400
8:34 pm
different species of wildlife. a lot of that is about 15 miles south of us at the massive barrier islands where it's the heart of the marshland. the turtles, birds, dolphins. i took this amazing aerial tour and was able to sea dolphins and their babies. one of the huge concerns is this is the most populace area of dolphins off the coast of mississippi and louisiana. the national wildlife foundation found two oily birds including one brown pelican which was just off the endangered species list. another concern, the you lauger head turtle, they found one gasping for air. just because the water looks clear, that's not necessarily the case way out there. >> absolutely. brooke baldwin, thanks very much. many experts believe this oil spill could end up being as devastating as the exxon valdez disaster.

8:50 pm
terrorism yet? >> you don't think from everything you've read after these days that a pakistani, who even the press is reporting said he got training in terrorist camps in pakistan? >> they are criticizing the miranda rights the moment he was arrested. you don't know all of that when you stop someone, when you arrest someone. he's an american citizen, so how do you say he's an american citizen so we're going to assume it's terrorism. the moment he was arrested, we didn't know. >> the conflict between civil liberties and personal security always comes into play at a time of conflict. in our history, great presidents from abraham lincoln to fdr have suspended civil liberties. they shouldn't be mutually exclusive. today's citizens choose personal security over civil liberties.
8:51 pm
