"obama explains how his health care plan will eliminate private insurance." nothing could be farther from the truth. >> reporter: during the presidential campaign, technical-savvy obama team created an original web site fightthesmears.com solely created to address the nasty rumor mill. it's a strategy they'll keep up. >> the internet is a way we can reach the millions of americans that are curious about our policies. they've heard rumors about health care, they've heard rumors about energy or any other issue. it's way for to us provide them with accurate information. >> reporter: it's not just about fighting bad rumors. it's also positive pr. the white house has started to produce their own videos showing

3:44 am
and said that's just not true. >> we saw the campaign have to battle all those rumors that president obama is a muslim, all those rumors about his hand placement on the bible during the oath. then they had to launch another website calledifythesmear. it's a battle they're used to fighting. >> and sarah palin will be the subject of a fact check. we'll look a

3:47 am
is not one in which myñi parent or my baby with down syndrome will have to stand in front of obama's death panel so his bureaucrats can decide based on a subject of judgment on their level of productivity in society whether they are worthy of health care. such as a system is downright evil. the president called that outlandish. >> why doesn't you put up what dr. zek emanual said. he's the chief adviser, brother of the chief of staff. >> he's not the chief visor. he's written articles that include some of those phrases. the only thing in the bill is that it would allow medicare it pay for what they say is voluntary counselling on end of life issues. >> i think people are very concerned when you start talking about cost controls that a bureaucracy -- we -- you're
3:48 am
asking us to trust the government. i'm not talking about the obama administration. i'm talking about the government. you're asking us to decide that we believe that the government is to be trusted. we know people have said routinely you're going to have to make decisions, you're going to have to decide. communal standards historically is a very dangerous concept. >> it's not in the bill. >> but the bill's a thousand pages of setting up mechanisms. it sets up 45 different agencies, has all sorts of panels. you're asking us to trust turning power over to the government when there clearly are people in the government who believe in establishing euthanasia, including selective standards. >> well, look, this is something newt answered agree on. i don't want somebody in between the doctor and the patient, i don't want the possibility of losing your health insurance, i don't want people setting standards and denying care. that's all what we have now under the private health insurance system. that's what happens. i've practiced for ten years, my wife is still practicing.
3:49 am
never once did i have a medicare bureaucrat tell me what i couldn't do for a patient but all the time we have bureaucrats from the insurance companies calling up and saying we're not going to pay for this or that. the system we have now is broken. we need to fix it. i think giving the american people some choices about how to fix it make sense. >> announcer: face the nation with bob schieffer. >> afghanistan is a little bit different -- a lot different from iraq. something else is very significant in afghanistan and that is that the afghan army is cohesive, they are motivated, they hate the taliban. so they had the motivation necessary. they don't have the numbers yet. we got to be much, much better in quick training of the afghan army. i think we've got to transfer this responsibility as quickly as we can. >> senator graham? >> i'm within republican that would support more troops in afghanistan. i'll be shocked if more troops are not requested by or
3:50 am
commanders. we're going to need more of everything. my message to my democratic colleagues is we made mistakes in iraq. let's not rumsfeld afghanistan, doesn't do this on the cheap. let's is enough combat pow and engagement across the board to make sure we're successful and we got a lot of ground to make up. >> on iran, are there new developments this morning about those three american hikers who strayed into iran? >> yes, there are in the sense that the government has officially acknowledged that they have them in their custody. >> and that's news. that had not been disclosed before. >> that is as of this morning. we do have that confirmation. >> how does this administration deal with mahmoud ahmadinejad? is he in a position with the political fighting toin gauge with the west? >> we certainly hope so. he is the figure of authority that we have to deal with.
3:51 am
it's clear that there is major problems going on -- i won't say major prlems but major events going on inside of iran that have to do with the election. but we have to deal with the figures of authority that are in position. we have sent strong messages that we would like these three young people released as soon as possible and also others that they have in their custody as well. this is -- these are innocent people. we want their families reunited and we would like to have it done as quickly as possible. >> speaking of those people be held in iran, they've been moved now from the border region where they were apprehended to iran. that's not interpreted as a good thing. they see it as a sign it could last a lot longer. >> iran's foreign minister says he optimistic and has met with iran's ambassador. questions of could they be charged with espionage. >> so much on the plate for the white house right now, foreign and domestic.

3:57 am
you should see it. >> i saw a very interesting story. it's called "paper heart." it's a quirky indy, a mockumentary. the premise is she's incapable of love so she sets out to make a documentary about love, how to find it and keep it, travels the country, interviews celebrities and kids and scientists and professors and married couples and finds really sweet stories about love along the way. >> what are you laughing at? >> nothing. >> laughing. >> it's out of the way now. now what should we do? >> as you can see, she found love, too, which poses the problem for the movie.
