7:04 am
have been the practice of previous secretary of states. >> she said that's not illegal. >> there was no prohibition on using it for official business as long as its preserved. >> but clinton aides did not submit those e-mails for i kievl as required. republican darrell issa said that may have been an attempt to hide the content of those messages. >> secretary clinton's aides didn't hand over her e-mails to government records. is that a failure or is that an oversight? >> it's a failure to comply with the law that the secretary had to know about, her aides had to know about. >> but in 2014 clinton did hand over 55,000 pages after the state department sent a written request for the records. aides say they tossed out clinton's personal notes like memos on her daughter's wedding. they claim nine out of every ten e-mails were to state department colleagues and already in the department's computer system. spokesman nick merrill said there was every expectation

7:07 am
shooting death of 18-year-old michael brown t justice department finds troubling details of the city's police department. 67% of ferguson's population is black, but between 2012 and 2014, they accounted for 85% of people pulled over by ferguson police and 93% of people arrested. when police used force, nearly nine times out of ten, they used it against blacks. the report also details a 2000 date e-mail in which a city official wrote that barack obama would not be president for very long because, quote, what black man holds a steady job for four years. last month cbs news asked ferguson police chief tom jackson whether his didn't was bias. >> there's not a racial problem in the police department. >> when michael brown was shot and killed by ferguson police officer daryl wilson last august, just three of the didn't's 53 officers were black. >> they criminalize us more in

7:09 am
it was an israeli prime minister openenly questioning while campaigning for re-election. president obama did not watch the speech but later dismissed its content, all of thping while the clock ticks on a potential deal with israel's arch enemy, iran. benjamin netanyahu warned congress the emerging deal will lift punishing economic sanctions while preserving much of iran's nuclear technology and the ballistic missile capability. >> that's why this deal is so bad. it doesn't block iran's path to the bomb. it paves iran's path to the bomb. >> the applause, loud and sustained. leaving it impossible to discern how much was for israel and how the prime minister which may have been how netanyahu and speaker john boehner who invited him without white house consent wanted it. president obama convened this
7:10 am
teleconference with ukraine during netanyahu's speech and then told reporters the transcript revealed quote, nothing new. >> the alternative the prime minister officers is no deal in which case iran will immediately begin once again pursuing its nuclear program, accelerate its nuclear program, without us having any insight into what they're doing. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi called his report insulting. >> i was near tears because i love israel so much. >> mitch mccome said the choice isn't as the white house often contends a deal with iran or war. >> it's choices between this deal and tougher sanctions. >> mcconnell said they'll debate next week requiring approval.
7:11 am
if that schedule holds it will be the first test of the staying power of netanyahu's speech. charlie? >> thank you, major. this morning isis is pushing back against iraqi forces. the militants are littering routes into the hometown of saddam hussein with mines and poms. holly williams is in iraq with new challenges with iraqi forces. >> reporter: good morning. the battle for tikrit. iraqi forces are being slowed down by the guerrilla tactics being used by the extremists. iraqi government troops, local tribesmen, and shiite muslim militias are encircling tikrit trying to retake the isis stronghold. officials here say nearly 30,000 fighters are on the ground the biggest offensive since isis swept across northern iraq last
7:12 am
year. but it looks more like a ragtag army than a well disciplined military. and on the outskirts of the city they're already running into trouble, pushed back by isis suicide bombers and roadside mines. if they cannot take ttikrit it may slow down plans to retake mosul, iran's biggest city which lies to the north. they massacred more than 1,000 iraqi government soldiers but gaining support from many locals who have now been offered amnesty by the iraqi authorities. there have been no u.s. air strikes in this operation even though they've proved decisive against isis elsewhere. but iraq shiite muslim officials are crossing the border and reportedly commanding the battle.
7:13 am
gayle? >> holly, thank you very much. passengers faced a dramatic scene after a turkish airbus skidded off the runway. some passengers had some bumps and bruises but there were no serious injuries to report. dense fog and rain hampered the landing. this morning president obama says he is ready to sign a bill funding the homeland security. the vote patted the house by 257-167. it pays the department through september but it does not contain language on the immigration actions. opening statements will begin this morning in the boston marathon bombing trial. dzhokhar tsarnaev faces 30 charges including use of a weapon of mass destruction. if convicted he could face the death penalty. cbsn's elaine quijano is in boston. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. 18 people were chosen from a pool of more than 1,300.
7:14 am
eight are men, 12 are women, all are white and all of them will end up deciding dzhokhar tsarnaev's fate. nearly two years since duo explosions rocked the finish line at the boston marathon, dzhokhar tsarnaev's defense attorneys have their work cut out for them. >> it's not a question of whether he will be proven guilty or found not guilty. they're looking to avoid the death penalty. >> tsarnaev has been held in isolation at a federal medical facility outside boston since 2013 with limited access to the outside world. the evidence against him includes surveillance video that allegedly puts him at the scene. eyewitnesses and forensic evidence including two pressure cookers used in the attack. the defense tried unsuccessfully to move the trial out of boston six times and has hinted it plans to argue tsarnaev was under the control of his older brother tamerlan. he was killed days after the
7:15 am
attack during a fire fight with police. three people were killed by the twin blasts. 264 were injured, including mark fu kuru who was standing ten feet from the bomb when it went off. the explosion took off his right leg, burned much of his body and left a piece of shrapnel lodged near his heart. he spent 100 days in the hospital and has had dozens of surgeries since the damage. still he said he will attend the trial. >> i mean this is where it happened. this is where it should be taken to trial. being on the ground with no leg bleeding out burning, on fire to see myself at that point to see where i am now, you know i want to witness it. i do. i want to see it. >> all the jurors and alternates said they were open to imposing the death penalty. the trial is expected to last for several months.
7:16 am
gayle? >> thank you, elaine. former cia director david petraeus faces a trial and fine this morning if the deal is approved. he pleaded guilty to sharing classified inform wgs his biographer who also happened to be his mistress. david martin is at the pentagon with more. good morning. >> good morning. that guilty plea is so he doesn't have to spend any jail time but it still has to be approved and the sentencing hearing still has to be scheduled. david petraeus admittedg his biographer and lover paula broadwell several notebooks he knew contained highly classified information and then lying about it to the fbi. >> perhaps my experience can be instructive to ores who stumble or far as far as i have. >> reporter: it's a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison. in this plea agreement the justice didn't will have the judge to impose two years'
7:17 am
probation and a 40,000 dollars fine. that's comparable to what former national security adviser sandy berger received for trying to steal classified documents from the national archives. lying the fbi is a more serious felony but the justice didn't did not charge petraeus with that crime apparently because there was no recording of the allegedly. he took eight books while serving. it includes war stretchgy, intelligence capabilities, and discussions with the president. when confronted by fbi agents petraeus said he had never disclosed any classified information to broadwell. after their affair was revealed petraeus resigned from the cia. he signed a document stating there is no classified material in my possession. even though those notebooks were still stored in an unlocked desk
7:18 am
drawer at his home. this guilty plea may not be the end of it for petraeus. the cia's inspector general had been investigating whether he misused his security detail in carrying on the affair with broadwell, and the army could still take action against him for having mishandled classified information while on active duty. charlie? >> thank you, david. this morning a mass ichb storm system stretches from the rockies to new england. it is causing dangerous and slick conditions in many areas. chunks of ice jammed the creek outside pittsburgh overnight, flooding some meteorologist danielle niles of our boston station wbz is tracking the latest storm threat. danielle good morning. >> charlie good morning to you. this storm is going to impact travel on the roads and in the skies. we're talking about the battle zone of much colder air coming in again and mild air to the south. we'll get a little bit of everything here from snow to the texas panhandle stretching back up to the tennessee river valley where some of the highest totals

it is wednesday, march 4th, 2015. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including israel's prime minister warning of a bad deal with iran. peggy noonan with the prime minister's speech to congress. but first here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> it gave her control over the account and helped shield it from the service. >> the national security agency. >> it reveals the ferguson police routinely and with racial bias violated federal and constitutional laws. >> it almost looks like a state of theionion address.
8:01 am
>> tikrit is a test for iraq. >> they were open to imposing the death penalty. the trial is expected to last for several months. >> known as a fighter and that fighting spirit resurfaced. >> this wasn't some guys having some beers and making fun. these are guys who were malicious and don't like me and tried to destroy my daughter. >> china will soon begin casting for its own version of "saturday night live." yes, there's going to be a "saturday night live" in china and like the u.s. they won't have any asian performers. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" presented by subway. >> i'm charlie rose along with gayle king and norah o'donnell. this mornings he's rejecting president obama's criticism of his speech to congress. the prime minister said tuesday that a potential nuclear deal
8:02 am
with iran kwoek, paves iran's path to the bomb. the president said netanyahu offered no alternatives. >> members of congress gave netanyahu 26 standing ovations during his 40-minute speech. dozens boycotted the address. peggy noonan is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> first of all, what did you think of his speefrp? >> i think it was a ten-strike. it achieved what he wanted it to achieve. it made him look very good back home and it allowed him to make a case against a nuclear deal that he thinks will be unhelpful and even dangerous. he did it well. >> what's his plan? >> what's his plan? to get elected and scutal deal. >> scutal deal rather than having an alternative way to limit their nuclear program. >> well, i this i in general he
8:03 am
has been against the idea of trusting iran. one of the interesting things about the speech yesterday was that he didn't just make a case against the deal as we understand it, that the administration is attempting to negotiate. he made a case against iran. he said it is a terror state. it is gobbling up other states. it cannot be trusted. so i think he wanted to implant that thought and make that argument. and i think he did it forcefully. >> the president said he didn't offer any new or viable alternatives. did he have a point with that? >> he kind of had a point. i think beebe's answer is look his viable alternative is don't go down this path. he also spoke that this plan will only last ten years and that allows iran to do what it wants to do which he thinks is
8:04 am
making nuclear weapons that can be used aggressively. i suppose he could say that's his plan. >> how astounding is it that he spoke before congress when there appears to be such a clear rift between barack obama and bebenetanyahu? >> i don't know. i think relations between this is administration and israel has been bad and i don't see them getting much better any time soon. i suppose the good news for the administration is this speech is other and they get to go forward and try to make a better deal. i'm not sure they can make a better deal when there is already so much opposition to the deal. you know what i mean? there's almost a little poison put on the negotiation i think, whenade his case. >> thank you. major league baseball says it's rolling out its first of
8:05 am
its kind plan for arm injuries of players. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. last season 1 pitchers had tommy john's surgery. an average of one per team. it knocked players out for a year. at best they knock them out for a year. at worst, for a quay rear. as we learned firsthand, it looks like that is changing. major league baseball's insatiable need for speed sends young pitching prospects across the country looking for an edge. from ron's baseball ranch in texas to tom house's clinic in los angeles, both can and do make players better. but both say these days the players' hometown coaches often make them worse. >> throwing across your body is not a bad thing. opening up is not a bad thing. all right. landing on your heel is not a
8:06 am
bad thing. curveballs don't hurt. throwing properly a curveball is the easiest pitch on the arm. >> you're saying the vast majority of stuff i learned when i was in little league and everyone else learned in little league was wrong. >> yes, sir. >> between 2010 and 2014 28 major league pitchers 25 or younger underwengt tommy john surgery. between 1995 and 1999 that number was six. house and woolforth who embrace technology have pushed for change. and mlb senior vice president chris mary nick said the league is about to do just that. >> we're about to begin a study this spring that looks at many factors, we're going to gather mris physical studies and physical range of motion studies on pitchers and watch them for five years and find out who got hurt, what are some of the
8:07 am
causes that got them hurt or kept them healthy. that will help us with information we didn't have. >> this study will not be complete until 2020 so don't expect a rash of arm injuries to end right away. but bought house and woolforth say it's a huge first step. >> that study will indeed be news. we look forward to that. you can see jeff's full report tonight on "60 minutes sports" on showtime. the debate over vanity ultrasounds of would-be mothers. dr. tara narula are showing us

in our morning rounds an image of controversy. that may be the first time you see your baby. it was for me. it often comes courtesy of ultra sounds and it's now giving people a much sharper view. but how the government is putting safety concerns in the picture. tara, good morning. >> good morning. there's no doubt ultra sounds provide doctors with vital information about the condition of an unborn child but as they get clearer, women are going for optional keepsake ultrasounds. that has the fda waving warning
8:14 am
flags. >> reporter: this 26-year-old is getting an ultrasound but this one isn't at her doctor's office. it's at the lakewood center mall in southern california at place called meet your baby. >> these are going to go in my photo album. i get to see him like you know so i'm excited and everything. >> reporter: meet your baby is a growing trend of facilities offering 3-d images of an unborn baby as keepsakes. he's a doctor. >> they spend more time and get a more enjoyable session out of it. >> reporter: but more time and multiple visits are part of what concerns the fda and doctors. while ultra sounds are considered safe, they're known to raise the temperature of exposed tell turmperature.
8:15 am
>> i know they're exciting but i don't think women should use technology for entertainment purposes. >> reporter: the fda says the long-term effects are not known. therefore, ultrasound scans should be done only when there is a medical need. and regarding ultrasound machines they're not intended for over-the-counter sale or use and the fda strongly discourages their use for fetal keepsake images and videos. >> i can't believe what i'm looking at. >> reporter: still it's obvious. the 3 h difficult ultrasound give mothers-to-be an uncanny picture of their child better than the chalky black and white often hard to disterncern 2-d pictures. >> do you feel it gives you more
8:16 am
of an emotional connection? >> very. >> it's a bonding experience. >> reporter: evelyn own 3/-d imaging in new york city. she has plans for a fourth. while she performs diagnostic ultrasounds for a variety of medical conditions as her website illustrates, 3-d prenatal images are the big sell. >> all of a sudden it's not black and white. you see the features. the biggest thing is the nose. everybody talks about the nose. whose nose is that? >> reporter: some worry it could provide a woman with a false sense of security. >> they think oh i've got to the mall and everything seems fine and i could be in great shape. on the other hand there isn't a
8:17 am
professional or physician onsite that may be able to detect it at that point in time. >> reporter: orosco says she requires all of her clients to be under the care of an ob-gyn. >> this does not replace anything that your doctor sends you for. >> do you ever have patients coming here asking you for advice? >> yes, but again i'm not a doctor. the biggest thing i tell them is drink plenty of water and that's a great question for your doctor. >> at least one in connecticut has banned it. it's important to note that under a doctor's care they're not dangerous and an important tool. >> i get the appeal you raise points for people to think about. it would not have given that a thought. >> the concern is it should be used for 20 minutes. and when you're going for long sessions and frequent imaging

they're in a very odd legal limb fwoe. they're getting national attention for allowing their children to walk home alone. we told you about this story in japan. they're 10 and 6 1/2. and the parents believe allowing them to go out on the town on their own teaches them competence. but it was so unusual a site someone called the police. they were sent a note says responsible for unsubstantiated child neglect. the couple plans to appeal and keep letting their kids roam free. cbs analyst rikky klieman joins us to bring us up to date. how do you defend yourself against something unsubstantiated? >> that's the problem for the parents. if we look at the law, child
8:23 am
protective services department has the aunt to do one of three things. that s they can rule it out, dismiss, they could say that it's indicated which means in essence you're found guilty of this form of neglect, or you're in this legal limbo as you say of unsubstantiated. so what does that mean. well, we're at risk for a long period of time now, including five years where their names are going to be put on a register so anything that happens with these kids could bring child protective service back for possible neglect. >> a lot of legal ease there. let's take a step back. on what grounds did the state find that they were -- there might have been some child neglect? >> we really don't know precise grounds. they walk to the playground play on the grounds and walk home. >> it was okay because there wasn't a bus. >> c >> but the issue is they were at a playground right? >> the issue is they were
8:24 am
walking alone and they were not going to school. so what you have here are parents who believe in free-rain j parenting as opposed to helicopter parenting. the law is interesting. maryland has a strength little law that says if you have a child that is in the home, that is the indoor law, that a child under 8 has to be supervised by someone older than 13, but there's no law about outside, so the lawyer in me says well is this a test case because we don't really know if this is neglect. and because of that neither does the child protective services. >> and the parents seem to say i'm going to keep doing what we're doing. >> they're really adamant. >> doubling down. >> doubling down is a good term. they say they're going to appeal. they're going to appeal and with this appeal they're at risk because it could turn out to be worse. >> thank you so much.

welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour some of hollywood's biggest celebrities are big supporters of scientology. the new documentary about the church seen behind the movie joins us here in studio 57. plus making pepperoni passe. we'll take you inside the pizza revolution. see how the classic could be toppled. that's ahead. right now it's time to show you some of this morning's headlines. the national transportation safety board is considering reopening investigation into the buddy holly plane crash. he was killed 56 years ago when his plane crashed. three others including musicians were also killed. the cause has been ruled pilot error but now a retired pilot says other factors may have contributed and the pilot was
8:31 am
really a hero. a decision on whether to reopen the case could take several weeks. time looks at the surprising reason people shake hands. they say it's to smell each other. researchers recently filmed subjects. they found people were far more likely to lift their hands to their noses after handshakes and nasal air flow shows sniffing. it may be a revolutionary thing like two dogs smelling each other. i don't think i ever did that. >> i don't, do you? we disagree. jared haynes is getting a shot at the nfl. the 27-year-old says he always dreamed of playing american football as a kid. he spent november in the los angeles area seeking out coaches and trainers who could help him better understand and prepare for american football. an upcoming documentary
8:32 am
about the church of scientology has discussed it. in 2004 they ordered the top officers to scientology's gold base in southern california. he forced them to live in a pair of doublewide trailers that he called the hole. >> the doors had bars put on them, the windows had bars put on them and there is one entrance door the security guard sat at 24 hour as day. they had to stay there, sleep there, stunk in there,ant ants curl crawling around. we had to come up with what each others crimes were so we could get out of the hole. >> scientology is really good at
8:33 am
making you think you're a scoundrel. confess your crimes con fresh fes your crimes, what have you done. >> they gosay one-sided and dishonest. the director of the academy award winner made the book. we invited a representative from the church of scientology. to come this morning. let's begin this morning. why this documentary for you? >> i'd actually been offered the story of the church of scientology many times but it wasn't until i read larry's book that i really became interested. one of the things i'm interested in is the belief, the notion that people get so invested in a belief system that they'll do the most appalling things. in that way it's about the church of scientology but it's about all of us really in terms of when we get invested in a
8:34 am
belief system. >> larry, what interested you about scientology? >> i've always been interested in why people believe in certain things. we have a smorgasbord of beliefs in this country, so you can believe anything you want. why scientology? it's the most stigmatized. obviously people go into it. they get something out of it. they are affiliated with it. my goal was to understand what was it that they were getting out of it why did they go in. >> it's magazine article for you. >> it's a profile of paul who is an academy award winning writer and director who dropped out after 35 years. >> well, as you might expect, the church of scientology is not happy. they've provided us with a statement. they said the film is a one-sided wine-fest and bigoted propaganda. how do you respond to the criticism because a lot of people say you didn't interview
8:35 am
anybody who's proscientology who's very active with the church. >> actually i reached out to a number of scientologists and as we say in the film they all declined to appear much as they declined to appear on this program. they did offer 25 unidentified people, but it's hard to understand. you know imagine if 25 unidentified people showed up at the studios here and said you demand to be heard. >> is that what happened? 25 people showed up in your place? >> they were around the corner unwilling to make themselves available. this is very late in the game long after i had asked for interviews from a number of keep people who were relevant in the storm. >> i did talk to a number of those people and active scientologists in preparation for the article in the book. so their view was constantly solicited by me and reflected in the book and the article and the documentary. >> one of the things that the movie alleges is that the church keeps these black p.r. files against scientologists including
8:36 am
john travolta. why is it and what are in these black p.r. files? why are they allegedly compiled? >> this is how it works. you do auditing of scientology and holding these cans that's attached. and it's an e-meter. the most intimate details of your life is filled out and they are recorded secretly and sometimes videotaped. and i talk to a former member of scientology who said there was a point when john travolta was thinking about leaving the church he was tasked with the job of compiling what they call black p.r. in case travolta left, they would be able to use the information against him. >> scientology is classified as a religion and therefore tax-exempt. >> correct. there was a huge fight over that because there was a pointhe0s when scientology face add billion-dollar tax bill and
8:37 am
had $1 million in assets and would have been extint but through some very nasty tactics they actually muscled the irs to give them the tax exemption which they currently hold. we are in effect subsidizing a lot of the activities of scientology through this tax exemption. >> is there one point where you want everybody to come away with with scientology? what is the theme here? >> i think there's one theme about scientology and one broader theme. the broader theme about scientology is, you know this tax exemption really has to be re-examined. also we have to look at these celebrities who are spokespeople for scientology, particularly tom cruise and john travolta and wonder why it is they allow these abuses in the church to go on and they don't speak out about them. >> what kind of abuses? >> child labor would be one. physical abuse. i had 12 people in the church tell me they had been physically
8:38 am
beaten up by the leader of the church. incarceration. there's a trailer on this camp or clergy and years ago david began to impris nate top leaders. >> what evidence do you have -- >> those are tough charges to make. >> and if john travolta and tom cruise were sitting here they would vehemently disagree. >> tom cruise knows this happened. if he's unaware of the fact that these people have been in the case of for instance eber he's been locked up in this thing for seven years. it's not like a vacation for the weekend. this is place where top executives of the church have been confined and we know because people have escaped and told their story. we have many people who have left that organization and have told the same story.
8:39 am
>> are you worried about your safety because of this documentary? there are reports that when people look into it in the documentary you talk about a reporter's dog who was poisoned, other people who were followed. have you been threatened and do own safety based on the stories you're telling? >> i'm worrying about the people who are former mens who have left. p.i.s and investigators are showing up at their doorstep and muscling them in effect. >> why do they continue to have them come forward? >> i think the real story is actually how many members are leaving. the church is actually shrinking even as their financial affects keep growing because they have over $3 billion. >> it has a following. >> a small but disappearing following. one of the thngs we get at in the more universal theme in the film and in larry's book is once
8:40 am
you become a prisoner of a belief system, it's very hard to let go. even some of the people we spoke to, it took years for them to finally understand the hold that scientology had on them. >> all right. thanks to both of you being here. >> my pleasure. >> going clear premieres sunday on march 29th on hbo. and it's not delivery. it's fin

8:46 am
>> we knew it was a risk. >> risky because for the past 100 years pizza hasn't changed very much. america's pizzeria opened in little italy in 1895 and this cheap dish spread everywhere. by the 1950s cheese and pepperoni pies had become an american takeout staple. today we eat more than 3 billion pizzas each year. >> is that the hut #delish selfie selfie. >> reporter: but now pizza is getting a makeover. pizza hut has served the same basic pies for more than 50 years but in november they debuted 26 new ingredients including spinach, sriracha and cherry peppers. alan platt is the food critic for new york's food magazine and a man who loves his pizza. >> what is it about pizza that
8:47 am
americans like? >> it tastes good. fresh baked. pizza's got that umptious addictive quality. >> reporter: platt said it's often less about changing tastes an more about clesher marketing. >> it's a great arms race to try to make things interesting to a generation of'ders. they know what a good pizza is and a good ham bur is and a good croissant is. in this day and age you're trying to get people's attention. >> that's where they hope to win people over. >> if it's a highly accessible food already like burgers or barbecue, make it as good as you can be. >> reporter: he's making a fortune in comfort foods building shake shack into a $1.5 billion brand. >> comfort foods, believe it or not, are more of a challenge to
