7:06 am
good but i'm sure there's a lot to deal with there. >> we of course have been worried about them and can't accelerated by this story. it's having they put this out especially at midnight to break their silence in this sort of way and they continue to heal. we want to talk about what's going on with this investigation in san francisco. we're hearing investigators today continuing with the asiana jet that crashed in san francisco. they are taking a close look at the actions of the crew of the boeing 777 in the final seconds before impact. john blackstone at san francisco international airport. john, good morning. >> good morning, norah and anthony. the charred remains of the asiana jetliner are still lying just off the runway where the plane skidded after the crash. investigators continuing to look through the wreckage. investigators also trying to determine what role the pilots may have played in the crash, assessing what the pilots did and when they did it. >> oh, my god. that's scary.
7:07 am
>> reporter: amateur video shows the moment emergency slides deployed and passengers began running for their lives. investigators are trying to figure out exactly why flight 214 made a crash landing saturday and then caught fire. they are piecing together the data gathered from videos the crash scene itself and flight recorders. but the pilots can answer key questions. >> we also want to talk to them about whether they were hand flying the airplane whether the autopilot was on and how well they understood the automation and what it was supposed to do. >> one factor may be the inexperience of the pilot who was landing the plane. it was the first time he was to land a boeing 777 in san francisco. but what is known is the final approach was too slow and too low. >> the lower portion of the tail cone is in the rock at the seawall. there was a significant piece of the tail of this aircraft that was in the water. >> as it made its final descent,
7:08 am
the plane was flying 40 miles an hour slower than normal. at 7 seconds before impact a member of the flight crew called for increased speed. just three seconds later, the controls began to shake signaling the plane was about to stall. just before hitting the ground the flight crew attempted to abort the landing and initiate a go-round for another try. >> we're looking at what they were doing. we want to understand why they were doing it. >> monday the father of one of the two teenagers killed confronted the ceo of asiana airlines who apologized for what he called a sudden accident. just last night the families of both of the girls arrived here at san francisco international airport and were quickly whisked away by security. as for the ceo of asiana he's expected to arrive here a little later on today and he's believed to be visiting some of the injured. anthony, norah. >> john blackstone thank you. a flight attendant aboard that plane is being called a hero
7:09 am
the last person to leave the burning jet. she helped evacuate passengers and even carried a boy on her back to slide down a chute, all after breaking her own tailbone. coming up first responders describe the dramatic scene they found at the crash site. that is ahead on "cbs this morning." captain sully sullenberger cbs news aviation consultant. captain, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> we're learning a lot of details from the ntsb about what might have happened, led to this crash, including that the plane was going 40 miles an hour slower than it should have been. what do you make of that? >> i think part of this information released so quickly is is logistically easier than in some accidents. for example, this wreckage was on the airport itself easily accessible not on the bottom of the atlantic. the flight recorders recovered quickly, transported overnight, the first night to the ntsb headquarters and begun to be
7:10 am
listened to and deciphered. the crew survived and is able to be interviewed. a lot of information available and available very quickly. i think also in the digital age, people are clamoring for more and more information. if it's possible to be released to the public i think the ntsb is doing so in a reasonably quick fashion. >> at the same time the pilots union put out a state criticizes criticizing data from flight recorders. why so upset? >> in the statement, the pilots union, largest in north america representing pilots from u.s. and canadian carriers has been expressing frustration with what they call wild speculation about this crash when still it's very, very early on. my approach to this entire investigation has been constant from the beginning is that two comments. first, it's still very, very early. second, it's more complicated than that. everything that's been released
7:11 am
has been bits and pieces of information. we haven't yet figured out which questions are going to be the most important ones to ask, much less have all the answers. this is going to require many months. it's going to take a while to put all the pieces together. >> all right. captain sully sullenberger. good to see you. >> good to be with you. the white house is debating a major change in afghanistan. a complete pullout of u.s. troops next year. it would reverse plans to keep a small number of american troops after the drawdown. major garrett at the white house. major, good morning. >> good morning, norah and anthony. the debate over whether to leave afghanistan militarily completely at the end of 2014 or keep, as has always been planned, a residual advisory force is now more real than ever. top white house aids tell us change in part building frustration the president has with afghan president hamad karzai. that boiled over when he was in germany when he had a well
7:12 am
designed effort to begin peace talks. a day after karzai denounced them and suspended all conversations over future military. that prompted this idea of a residual military force after most are due to leave afghanistan by the end of 2014. it's important to remember back in january the president said a zero troop option in afghanistan was on the table. back then it felt more like a point of leverage. after 69 u.s. military deaths this year and 2,115 over the entire course of the afghan war, that option is now more real. what's telling is the afghan government is beginning to understand that and so is the pentagon. white house insists no final decisions on this have been made. norah and anthony. >> major garrett at the white house. thank you, major. in egypt muslim brother wood calling for more protests today after the deadliest day of violence since mohamed morsi was
7:13 am
ousted last week. holly in cairo. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. four people killed in a violent week of protests. in an attempt to restore calm the interim president announced fresh elections in around six month's time. the situation here in cairo is changing very quickly and there are real fears that egypt is descending into chaos. outside the barracks of the republican guard in chiropractor okay protesters face off with the egyptian military. deep divisions in this country have erupted onto the streets again. these men supported mohamed morsi, the democratically elected president who was ousted by the military last week. they believe morsi is being held inside the barracks. yesterday the military opened fire on the demonstrators killing more than 50 people. the protesters say they were praying peacefully when the
7:14 am
soldiers started shooting. the egyptian military denies that and told a press conference they were provoked by an armed attack. but nobody is disputing that dozens of people were left dead in a cairo hospital where many of the injured are being treated, there's anger at the army. there were women and children said this man, who was shot through the arm. people were falling in the streets and we weren't able to help them. and this man said that his injured son wasn't carrying a weapon but was holding only an egyptian flag when he was shot. supporters of president morsi are organizing protests today. they don't want elections but want morsi reinstated. the top cleric has warned egypt could be dragged into a civil war. anthony and norah. >> holly, thank you. the jury in the george zimmerman murder trial is expected to learn today that
7:15 am
trayvon martin had marijuana in his system when he was shot. the judge ruled yesterday that defense lawyers could introduce the toxicology report. but the main focus of the testimony is the 911 call where someone can be heard screaming for help. the lead investigator and martin's father offered different versions of the father's reaction to hearing that call. >> i in inquired if that was, in fact his son yelling for help. >> what was his response? >> he looked away and under his breath, as i interpreted it said no. >> i think the chairs had wheels on them and i pushed away from the table and just kind of shook my head and said i can't tell. >> cbs news legal analyst jack ford. good morning. a lot of confusion about whose voice is on this 911 call. we have different accounts. why does it matter? >> matters because the core of the case is who started the fight.
7:16 am
prosecution wins if the jury says george zimmerman started the fight. he can't rely on florida's law and say i'm losing this fight, i'm going to pull my gun and blow you away. the defense wins if trayvon martin started this fight and george zimmerman has a reasonable fear for his safety. he's protected by that. the idea theory is whoever is yelling for help probably didn't start the fight. that's why it's become so critical. >> jack, we've been following this case a while now. you've been here a bunch. i keep getting more confused. what is that telling you about the case. >> in some ways that's telling you that's what the defense wants to do. the prosecution to win this case has to proof beyond a reasonable doubt george zimmerman took the life of trayvon martin with ill will or hatred. the defense can win two ways. yes, indeed self-defense comes into play he's not guilty. the second way is you know what, we don't know what happened here. if they can't figure it out,
7:17 am
they can't conclude the prosecution proved beyond a reasonable doubt. confusion is the defense's friend. >> now the judge ruled toxicology reports can be made public to the jury trayvon martin had marijuana in his system. >> most people would be surprised to know everything about a person's background either a victor defendant is not automatically admissible. here the judge has agreed with the defense that we're not trying to trash trayvon martin but explain what his conduct was like and why george zimmerman was attracted to him. the judge will tell the jurors. you'll hear he had marijuana in his system. you can use that for whatever you choose or ignore it at this point. at least they will hear it at this point. >> thank you. time for headlines around the globe. usa today reports brakes on the train that exploded in canada had been disabled. about 90 minutes before the blast firefighters put out a fire on the train and unhooked the brakes.
7:18 am
at least 13 people are known dead. forty others are still missing. >> germany newspaper had excerpts from edward snowden. he claims nsa is in bed together with germans. he says israel and nsa co-wrote the computer virus that hacked into iran's nuclear program. "the washington post" says this year's deficit forecast has shrunk. deficit expected to be $759 billion. that's $214 billion less than previously forecast. part of the reason the massive automatic spending cuts that kicked in march 1st. "wall street journal" says americans are keeping up with their credit card bills. the rate of people falling behind has dropped to the lowest level in two decades. experts say debt is down and wealth is up. >> charlotte observer said singer randy travis is hospitalized in critical condition with heart problems. the 54-year-old is treated for a heart ailment caused by a virus that can cause heart failure.

♪ frankly, i'm surprised about eliot spitzer running for city comptroller because comptroller. i mean this guy couldn't even comptrol himself. welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour it's the big reason people move to the beach. a breathe taking view. now on the jersey shore, a legal fight. you'll hear what governor chris christie is saying. plus, just after they closed the washington monument. and the pakistani government missed huge opportunities to catch terror leaders before he
7:31 am
was killed in 2011. the report blames the incompetence of pakistan's intelligence and security forces. elizabeth palmer shows us why at times, bin laden was hard to miss. >> reporter: the u.s. raid that killed bin laden revealed that he'd been living in a large house in a compound with many neighbors just 60 miles from pakistan's capital right under the noses of pakistan's military and security agencies. the whole world, including most pakistanis asked how on earth could he have pulled it off. this report does fill in some blanks. based on interviews with three of his wives it shows after narrowly escaping a vast military manhunt in tora bora in 2001 bin laden escaped in pakistan. moving on to the town haripur in
7:32 am
2005. how then did he avoid detection for five more years? the report says from top to bottom riddled it says with complicency, inefficiency and negligence. but what it doesn't do is accuse of any of those of colluding with bin laden. >> the report was designed ultimately to show that there was nothing deliberate or malice. bin laden generally was a failure. >> reporter: for many intelligence in the west this was nothing new. corruption from pakistani security services is already a given. and the report will do nothing to dispel suspicion that somewhere someone somewhere gave bin laden cover. for "cbs this morning," elizabeth palmer london. >> with us now, our senior correspondent john miller, a former fbi director and one of the few that interviewed bndz. good morning.
7:33 am
>> as elizabeth pointed out, i don't think people were shocked that there were innishefficiencies in the service. what surprised you about that? >> none of that. i think the most interesting are the stories told by the wives and children about day-to-day life year after year. i think you have to consider osama bin laden figuring the pakistani intelligence machine, the united states of america, nerve expected to last there that long. >> i mean this is a scathing report that was leaked on al jazeera and then the government shut down al jazeera. some of the details are kind of interesting. that osama bin laden was walking around with a cowboy hat on. >> to avoid detection from above. >> in a way that makes sense. if you really want to get noticed in pakistan walk around
7:34 am
with a cowboy hat. plus imagine if george bush heard that, he was walking around with a what? >> the other interesting thing, is that this house that bin laden had four separate meters for electricity installed in it. so it didn't look like they were using a whole bunch of electricity. i mean there were multiple examples of deception. and yet, the pakistanis missed multiple opportunities to catch him. >> it seems everybody in town knew about the big house, except the police the military which owned that town at the location of the pakistani west point, and their intelligence service. so, now that we're at this stage of the conversation, we have to raise a serious question which is did the pakistanis construct a report -- >> that's what i was going to ask you -- >> -- that fell on the sword choosing to say we're incompetent. >> rather than to say we're colluding. >> right. you have to understand the pakistani government service. it seems governments in pakistan will come and go but the isi,
7:35 am
the intelligence service, is really the permanent government there and the shadow government in many ways. >> finally i want to ask you about the associated press report that the top commander mcraven ordered that these files be transferred from the defense department to the cia. how significant do you think that is? >> i don't think it's terribly significant. i think anybody who says they're not trying to do it for two agencies i don't is not being completely honest. it was carried out under the intelligence title of law which meant really the head of the cia was the commander of the raid. but the actual raid was done by the military. so if it was an intelligence operation, all the files belong on the intelligence side. >> the pakistani military office saying the extent of their incompetence to put it mildly was astounding.
7:36 am
the fact that they allowed the u.s. to fly in and carry out this raid without detection. >> and that's something that the u.s. went to -- i was actually briefed on that operation the day after by the director of the cia. i sat in on that briefing. and this wasn't simply just flying in unnoticed. the u.s. went to a lot of time and trouble to make sure that this worked. and i can't get into how they did that. but the pakistanis would have been pretty good if they did notice. >> john miller. thanks so much. on the jersey shore there is a turf battle under way. sand dunes were put in place to protect the coastline from another disaster like superstorm sandy. one couple says though they're losing their view and the valve their home. their lawsuit led to a six-figure settlement. but the state supreme court has just tossed that deal out. michelle miller is in cedars new jersey with a view of some of those dunes. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah, this isn't just about one home or the 20-foot sand dune
7:37 am
i'm standing on. it's seen as a wider case of coastal protection. and it's really about the town's fight to keep it. >> with the dune here although you can see that it's really a lot of times at the first level. >> reporter: mayor jonathan oldham says sand dunes saved the town of harvey cedars from the ravages of superstorm sandy. without them he says these exclusive multimillion-dollar beach front homes would have washed out to sea. >> it's a must. for us there's no other answer. >> reporter: mayor oldham supports the supreme court ruling against the owners of this two-story, $1.7 million home. the owners sued the town for building the 20-foot dune on their property. saying it blocked their view devalued their home by $500,000 and they were not justly compensated. a lower court awarded them $375,000.
7:38 am
>> so they're saying you know what you have damaged value of my property by building this dune to protect my home in front of me. >> reporter: haven't you? i mean isn't that what people are saying for, the view? >> well if you don't have a home, what difference does it make? >> reporter: the dune has been a work in progress for three years. it's part of a statewide protection plan. an aerial tour post-sandy confirmed that communities who fortified their dunes systems suffered far less damage during the superstorm than those who didn't. residents feared politicians could build whatever they wanted. and their property values would tank. governor chris christie has called them knuckleheads. >> i have no interest in taking your property. i don't want to build a road. i don't want to build a bathroom. i don't want to build anything except a dune, okay?
7:39 am
[ cheers and applause ] >> we are not going through that again so you can sit on the first floor, rather than the second floor and see the ocean. >> reporter: the case has now been kicked back to a state court to decide a payout for the couple. mayor oldham says the dunes in fact increase property values. and adds the safety of the many outweighs the need of a view. >> we had 95% of the people of our town sign the -- 95% of them signed them for a dollar right? because they saw the value in what they were getting by getting protection. >> reporter: the couple that sued the town declined an interview. but we did speak with their attorney. he says they're ready for the next round, as they seek what they consider just compensation. norah, anthony. >> and, michelle how big is that dune that you're standing on? >> reporter: it's 22 feet high. or at least that's the grade
7:40 am
that it should be. it varies in different places. and as you can see, they're in the process of trying to restore it. since superstorm sandy. >> michelle miller. thanks michelle. how about a glow in the dark landmark? the washington monument like you've never seen it before. we'll show you why it took a disaster to create a thing of beauty. and why this is giant statue of a famous actor standing in the middle of a lake? if you're any kind of a jane austin fan you'll know. that's next on "cbs this morning." ♪ ooh baby when i see your face mellow as the month of may ♪ if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis, like me, and you're talking to your rheumatologist about trying or adding a biologic. this is humira, adalimumab. this is humira working to help relieve my pain. this is humira helping me through the twists and turns. this is humira helping to protect my joints

8:07 am
coup because it threatens aid. the best leverage the white house has is this aid to egypt. using that and the threat of removing it to get some kind of a post situation where all parties will have representation. the conservative chris teet is this isn't much leverage at all. if there is any real threat the aid is going to leave, it is not a threat. >> isn't it true most of the aid for this year is already on its way there? >> that's what senator mccain said. he said we need to withhold this aid. most is in the pipeline. as leverage goes this leverage a lot of it is out the door. it's the best they've got. >> we have just learned that the president is considering pulling all troops out of afghanistan faster than he originally intended. this is in "the new york times" this morning. what's that all about? >> the white house says look this has always been an option. they talked about it in january, this zero option no troops being there after 2014. so the president's decision is not based on the bio rhythms of
8:08 am
hamid karzai. there are plenty of other reasons other than karzai's mer kerral response to things. that is part of what has the white house so angry at him. there are other things going on. marginal gains, the continued loss of life. the difficulty still ongoing with pakistan. the idea that the operation for other reasons is not going as well as planned. >> as you know, eliot spitzer was here yesterday talking about his decision to run for controller. the decision he made over the weekend. you said he wants new yorkers to give him the one thing he has never shown anyone else forgiveness. he said that's what he wanted. >> he said he wants forgiveness. if you look at his career he calls himself the steamroller. that's not a piece of equipment associated with mercy. when he is running for office he is saying look at bhawhat i did as attorney general. that was hard-charging,
8:09 am
relentless. voters don't need to forgive him. they need not to care. he has skills and talents for this job as comptroller more important than anything that happened in his personal life. >> don't you find you are writing down quotes. >> a steamroller, not amachine associated with mercy. >> if you want maerscy,ercy, you have to go to a backhoe or some other piece of construction equipment. >> or a rake. >> the voters will decide the owner of the new england patriots robert kraft, is commenting about his former player, aaron hernandez, charged with murder. kraft says if the allegations against hernandez are true the patriots have been duped. the team signed the tight end to a five-year, $40 million contract last year but released him on his day of arrest. krft says he was shocked when hernandez was charged with killing odin lloyd mexico has knocked the united states from the top spot

8:31 am
because it was the title of a short film that warner brothers released back in 1916. the motion picture association of america agrees and siding with them in arbitration last week. but harvey weinstein will not stand down and is appealing the decision. here's a look at the film they're fighting over. >> all puffed up. say whatever you want. you need to go. >> what? >> get the hell out of my house! get on out! >> please. >> no, no. >> i can't take this no more. >> we ain't doing this no more. everybody sit down. >> i'm sorry, mr. butler i didn't mean to be a hero. >> everything that you are and everything that you have is a butler. >> and we welcome harvey weinstein back to studio 57.
8:32 am
and from london we're joined by christopher dodd. the chairman of the motion picture association of america and floyd abrams. and welcome to all the lawyers. we know how important this is given how many people are here. let's start with you, harvey. warner brothers say they own the rights to the title "the butler." they reregistered it as recently as 2010. why are they wrong? >> it's not that they're wrong, but it would have just said this is a movie about civil rights. 28 financiers financed the movie. and titles have been used and repeated. our understanding with them was this was just going to be a simple process. sandra bullock and mccarthy have a movie out called heat. and ten years before that bert reynolds made a movie called
8:33 am
heat. these guys told us they were going to do the normal business day practice. i think there was an ulterior motive. >> chris, what went into that decision that they couldn't use the title? what was the consideration that went into that decision? >> it's almost 100 years it's called the title registration bureau. it was established in 1925 to set up a mechanism for easy dispute resolution were resolute scribers are, the weinstein company is obviously one of them. they've submitted titles like "the king's speech," "the artist," it's designed to protect titles. to protect articles to make sure titles are not duplicated. when that happens i'm not familiar with cases that my good
8:34 am
friend harvey cited, but that's where you go and work this out between the companies. that's the role of the bureau established in 1925. you're not forced to entirely a voluntary system you sign an agreement by which you say i will abide by the rules. now, the rules are in place. now, you can argue about whether or not you like the rules or not. there's an appeals process. go through that. there's no reason why this has to become a large issue. >> okay. let me bring in harvey david boies, your attorney. david, the film is set to be released august 16th. the clock is ticking here. now that the mpaa says you can't use that title, what are you going to do now? >> we have to find a way to get this important civil rights movie out. i think there are three points you have to understand. first, if this was to do as my friend chris dodd says to protect against confusion, there wouldn't be a problem here. there's no confusion.
8:35 am
the 1916 was a short subject. no one alive virtually has seen it. not on dvd, not on television. there's simply no chance for confusion. what's going on here is that they're using the power of the mpaa which after all is an organization of all of the major studios to say, we're going to restrict competition from this new film. and that's simply wrong. it would be fine if what the goal was what chris says which is to protect competition. >> warner brothers says this in a statement to us that the weinstein company is disregarding the mpaa's rules and follows an off-ready toen path of creating well publicized controversies in order to promote their films by disseminating deliberate misinformation about the true nature of this dispute." they accuse the weinstein brothers of hypocrisy. trying to drum up publicity.
8:36 am
they could have settled it and they didn't. what do you say about what the warner brothers company is saying about you? >> we did try to settle it. you know i went through this with bullying. i've gone through this all my life. my dad taught me to fight injustices. this is unjust. this is coming out august 16th. i was asked by two executives of warner brothers which i'm happy to testify if i gave the rights back to "the hobbit" they would drop the claim for a 1916 short. this was used as a bullying tactic. >> this is about somethings? >> oh yeah i think this is 100% -- this is the big guy thinking they can hit the small guy. they didn't know that the small guy knows david boies pretty well. and david boies takes the small guy's side. >> is this about something else? >> what it's really about is people keeping their word. the weinstein company agreed signeded a contract to participate in this system where
