7:01 am
mantle on day time? and charlie sheen. the moments that audiences were on their feet and cringing in their seats. hello, everyone. happy monday. robin roberts on her spring break today. glad to welcome elizabeth vargas. >> good morning. we were both just on spring breaks recently. the stories with southwest airlines hit home. >> a flight from oakland to san diego had to be diverted last night. other breaking news. president obama became the first candidate to officially join the 2012 campaign for president. he e-mailed the announcement. in past campaigns, challengers have made the first moves. >> they've been the first to dip
7:02 am
their toe into the water. >> not this time. >> we don't know who is going to be running yet. we have an exclusive with former president bill clinton, talking about whether we should be in libya right now. >> she talked to him about the clinton goebl initiative. that's coming up. and we have a big announcement this morning about "gma" and lady gaga this morning. let's get to the serious news of the morning. the latest with southwest airlines. the airline said they found more cracks in the planes. on friday, a 5-foot hole opened up in the ceiling of a 737. lisa stark has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. southwest says they found cracks in three additional planes. there are more inspections to go.
7:03 am
the airline will scrutinize some of the older 737s. all this after the terrifying moments on the flight from phoenix to sacramento. this is the part of the plane that broke apart. it's headed to washington, d.c. for microscopic analysis. they have found fatigue cracks all along the section that broke apart. >> we have clear evidence that the skin separated at the lower rivet line. >> reporter: the question, why weren't the cracks found in previous inspections? there were no intensive inspections required on this part of the aircraft because no one thought krax would develop here? >> now we may have to check them at places we never thought we would before. >> reporter: assume this balloon
7:04 am
is the fuselage. you take up a, the plane pressurizes, it expands. when you descend, it contracts. those movements stress the metal. it was a dangerous moment when the ceiling opened up. oxygen masks were needed to breathe. pilots reacted immediately. the crew turned the jet sharply to the right, pushed the nose down. losing more than 20,000 feet in just 4:30. the initial thought was to return to phoenix. the situation was so critical the crew made a beeline for the closer military airport. the old ter plane is, the more takeoffs and landings, the more likely to develop krax. many of them are not visible to the faked eye. you need sophisticated equipment to find them. >> are they going to ruse them?
7:05 am
this plane was just inspected a few weeks ago. >> they were not looking in this area. this calls into question the whole inspection program. >> two passengers reportedly faint because they didn't get their masks on quickly enough. >> you really only have several seconds to get it on before you lose oxygen. every flyer sees the videos before takeoff. how quickly could you react? ron claiborne put himself to the test. >> good morning, george. when a plane has a rapid decompression, you have to get the mask on fast. you will have difficulty breeting quickly if not. if they don't get under 14,000 feet within four minutes, brain damage can occur. i was subjected to a simulation. it's a harrowing experience. if you fly, you have seen these pre-flight safety videos. >> it's unlikely.
7:06 am
but if cabin pressure changes -- >> oxygen masks with appear. >> reporter: if you're like most people, you ignore them. they could save your life. how much time do you have to get the mask on and working? >> it depends on the decompression. sometimes it's minutes. others, it koubd two to three seconds. >> reporter: what happens if you don't get your mask on intime? at training center, the instructors showed me what it would feel like. >> complete seal over your nose and mouth. >> reporter: they slowly lowered oxygen rates pip began to feel faint. closer to the 2:00 mark, i was so light-headed i was making frequent errors on what should have been an easy test. i began to hit the screen so hard it shook.
7:07 am
frustrated and fatigued, at the 4:00 mark, i could barely breathe. in every row, there's an extra oxygen mask so if you're traveling with a child, there's one for you and the child. put your mask on first and then the child. if a rapid decompression like the southwest flight, the mask dropped quickly. in a slow decompression, usually caused by a small leak, it can be tricky. passengers and crew may not notice the first effects. fatigue, mental confusion, dulled reflexes. if they don't get oxygen in time, unconsciousness. that happened back in 1999 when payne stewart's private plane had a slow decompression. that plane crashed. killing all four on board. flyers need to be ready. >> it was something to watch you
7:08 am
there. the effects lasted for several hours? >> for several hours. light headed. mental confusion. it was tough. very unpleasant. now we turn to the protests in afghanistan for the fourth straight day. demonstrators there rioting over the actions of pastor terry jones whose church burned the koran on march 20th. you talked to him, matt, how did he seem? >> he seemed coherent. he said this was something hay planned to do. the same preacher and church that planned to burn 200 koran's back on september 11th. a few weeks ago, they did it. it got on youtube and shot across the world. this is what it looks like in afghanistan this weekend.
7:09 am
over 20 dead. violence sparked by the burning of a single koran at this tiny florida church. general petraeus condemned it. >> that action was hateful. it was intolerant. >> reporter: pastor terry jones said his beliefs are more important. even at the expense of an american soldier or two or ten? >> i would have to say yes. perhaps in the long run, we have saved hundreds or thousands of lives. >> reporter: a lot of americans would disagree. i'm sure the mothers of those boys would, too. >> we do not take that lightly. we cannot allow it to eat us up. >> reporter: and the death threats are streaming in. >> right now, we have over 300. today, i believe ten came in. >> reporter: some so specific, they named the date, time, and place that jones would be killed. but jones and his assistant, the man who lit the match to burn
7:10 am
the koran, say they're not afraid. you're willing to die for this? >> yes, we are. yes, very definitely. that's actually how important we feel it is. jr. jones and his few remaining followers are always armed. can we see? >> sure. >> reporter: this is a church that is increasingly isolated. it's parishioners have left the church. how many? >> basely all. >> they would have to turn out more manpower. it's bigger than the fall as far as potential threats. >> reporter: the fbi and the local police have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars protecting this place. they say they're more interested in protecting the neighbors and that the church its. now to the announcement.
7:11 am
president clinton will run for president in 2012. imcame in an e-mail shortly after 5:00 a.m. eastern. the official papers will be filed later today. jake tapper joins us with more. the slogan is, it begins with us. the president didn't appear in the video. >> reporter: that's right, george. this video and the initial phase of the campaign is aimed at two groups of new voters. the new voters that went for obama in 2008 and have not been that engaged since and new voters for 2012. they believe it will be a tight election. the way they can win is by expands the elect rorate. there's a kid in the video saying he didn't vote in 2008 because he wasn't old enough. >> the other reason they want a low-key announcement is the virus crises the president is
7:12 am
dealing with. the government shutdown. can you see any progress? >> reporter: they're cautiously optimistic. the president talked to speaker boehner and senate majority leader reid over the weekend. they've been talking about it in terms of getting something done by saturday morning. that's the hope. >> that is the hope. the republicans say they want the avoid the shutdown as well. now from president obama to an exclusive interview with the last democrat who won a second term at president. bianna golodryga spoke with president bill clinten in california. she began with the crisis in libya, asking president clinton to respond to those that say what happens there is not a core concern of the united states. >> i take a broader view of our national interests. i think we're trying to build a world in which people resolve their differences in nonviolent ways. and we're trying to build a
7:13 am
world with no ruler can cavalierly kill its unarmed civilians. think for the united states to be on the side of this freedom movement, without implying that we have interest or the capacity to send armed forces on the ground and to do everything is a good thing. i think we have greater capacity with missiles to take out the airfields and air defense systems that we did early in the action. >> should we be arming the rebels now? it's an issue that's come up. we don't know who these people are? >> i would -- i might need to know a little more. i would be inclined to do it. i sure wouldn't shut the door to it. since hillary became the secretary of state, i go out of my way to get security briefings. i'm speaking just for myself. >> reporter: we spoke to president clinton at the san

diego food bank. college students came here to volunteer. >> their ideas in energy are infectio infectious. we're trying to take the best of them and get the more well heeled members to take their ideas across the world. >> reporter: we saw your daughter moderate a panel yesterday. what was she talking about? >> she was moderating the panel on college affordability. she wanted to moderate and wanted to know, are we maximizing what is there for students? in the last decade, when the costs wept up, we continued to be first in the world in the percentage of our young people going to college. we fell all the way to 12th in the percentage of young adults, 24 to 35 with four-year degrees. that's a troubling thing. >> reporter: the economy is the number one topic. focusing on jobs is your next
7:15 am
big venture. what can we expect to see? >> i hope that we will see a hole spate of ideas and commitments about what can be done now. not oh, if only the congress and the president would do this. what can we be doing now to speed up the creation of jobs? we need to be growing at about 225,000, 250,000 jobs a month for a couple of years. we have the capacity. we should be retrofitting every state, county, and local government building. put people to work. >> reporter: i have to ask you about washington. negotiations are going on to avoid a possible government shutdown. do you think the president is giving in too much? >> i don't know yet. there are fixes where it's shut
7:16 am
down but not. you leave basic services open. and, i think it could hurt the republican ifs it looks like the democrats have a reasonable offer. >> reporter: and of course raising the debt limit is next. >> i don't think the president should be buffaloed by that. if the republicans refuse to raise the debt limit, they're playing russian roulette with our credit rating. >> reporter: should he take on those that question where he was born. donald trump questions it now. should the president say, i'm sick of taking the high road and just fight back or handle this once and for all? >> i think he will fight back. one of the elemental rules of combat is you don't want to get in your opponent's way if he's shooting himself in the foot. >> as for tackling the deficit,
7:17 am
president clinton praised the findings of the bipartisan commission. major cuts have to be made. they should start in 2012, when we know the economy is growing again. banks still are not lending enough. that's one of the issues that cgi america will be focusing on. the president's kept to the diet. >> he's still vegan. >> incredible. now to the explosive sexual harassment case against yale university. a group of young women and men exposing a hidel culture on campuses. taking their allegations to court. linsey davis has more. >> reporter: it's called the preseason scouting report. an e-mail circulated to fraternities on the 40th anniversary of women arriving at yale. it con tans names of freshman women rated on a beer scale frp from i would have sex with you sober to i would have sex with

you blackout drunk. this is one of many grievances in a suit filed. >> if ever where you turn, there's someone who has violated another person's bodily agency, they're near you, how are you supposed to go about having those great, bright college years? >> reporter: the complaint says the school has had an inadequate response and has violated title ix requirements. >> do the women feel safe? can they take advantage of the opportunities on their campus? according to the complaintants, no. >> reporter: if an e-mail to abc news, they said we assure members of the xhupt and those
7:19 am
beyond our community that yale does not tolerate sexual harassment. this night time video of yale students chanting is so offensive, we can't play it all the way through. >> we have a problem. the failure must end. >> reporter: over the next month, the office of civil rights will conduct a climate check here at yale. if the investigation determines that the university is not in compliance with title ix and the university doesn't fix problem, they stand to lose more than $500 million in federal funding. >> plenty of incentive. time to check in for the weather with sam champion. a series of storm from the midwest to the east. >> yeah, good morning, elizabeth. sometimes the forecast is so troublesome. they issue an outbreak watch or warning. we'll start with how many we have had this the last 24 hours. as we hook through kansas, iowa,

8:11 am
cinema that you could do probably anywhere and everybody knows exactly what it is. >> reporter: it must have given you mixed emotions to see it in a remake this year. >> it did. it did. not that i'm going anywhere any time soon, but it's on the tombstone already. now, all of a sudden, i have to add this original thing. that was odd. >> reporter: born, raised, and still making his family's home on new york's long island, he steered clear of trouble, unlike many of his hollywood peers. do you think your absence of bad behavior has held you back from opportunities in show business? >> i don't think so. i have always lived outside of hollywood in the suburbs of new york. i would say it's a fair point that if i was in it more, 24/7, during what i would call the lean years, maybe more opportunities would have happened. >> reporter: you seem so comfortable with your life. it's hard to imagine frustration. >> oh, that's not true. i'm human. i want to succeed. i'm a perfectionist.

8:13 am
or that relevant because he's led fairly well-adjusted life? the more i try to bad -- myself, the more deep water i get myself in. >> reporter: as for ralph in real life, on tuesday, he and his wife, phyllis, will celebrate their 24th wedding anniversary. you were introduced to her by your grandmother? >> that's pretty close. it was at my cousin's sweet 16 party at my grandmother's house. these are like, tootsie rolls, cheese doodles, and a coke. now, it's like red carpet. lights, limos. believe me. i just paid for one for my daughter a couple of years ago. >> reporter: father to daughter, julia, and son, daniel. ralph is proud of the choices he's made to put his family first. even amid the demands of an actor's life. >> at the end of the day, it's my kids, it's my family, my upbringing. in retrospect, all the choices worked out for the -- for the --
8:14 am
for the good. >> and, of course, tonight's dances with reflect on the contestants' personal life stories. we'll learn more about ralph. he seems so comfortable in his own skin. his muscles on the other hand, are killing him, george. >> what a great guy. thank you very much, chris.
