and chelsea's big day. new details emerging from the event of the summer inside the picture-perfect wedding "early" this monday morning, august 2nd, picture-perfect wedding "early" this monday morning, august 2nd, 2010. captioning funded by cbs and good morning, everyone. on this monday, i'm erica hill in for maggie rodriguez on maternity leave. >> it's a beautiful monday morning here in august already. can you believe that? i had a busy last couple of days including an interview with president obama. he is in atlanta today laying out his plans for the troops in iraq. the president has increased the u.s. commitment, of course, in afghanistan. i sat down for an exclusive interview with the president on friday. and we discussed a number of issue that is he and the nation are facing, including our latest strategy in afghanistan.
>> it is the end of july, the deadliest month for troops since the war began in 2001. it almost feels like a slippery slope. >> if i didn't think that it was important for our national security to finish the job in afghanistan, then i would pull them all out today. because i have to sign letters to these family members when a loved one is lost. we now have a strategy that can work. we have one of our best generals in david petraeus on the ground. i have been very clear that we are going to move forward on a process of training afghans so that they can provide for their own security. and by the middle of next year, by 2011, we are going to start thinning out our troops and giving afghans more responsibility. ly tell you that i have not met a single young men or woman in uniform right now serving in
afghanistan who doesn't think that's an important mission. >> why is this economy now not growing the way people in the country would want it to? >> this has been an extraordinary downturn. so that means that if you're in a deeper hole, it is going to take longer to come back. when we've lost as many jobs as we have, when -- you have seen as much hardship, people losing values in their homes and their 401(k)s, et cetera, people have every right to be scared, to be angry, to be frustrated. and i took this job because i was convinced that i could solve these problems, not just short-term, but long term. but i also knew this was going to be a bumpy road ahead, and i don't expect the american people to be satisfied when we are only half of the way back. we've got to keep on growing faster than we are currently growing. with they have to make sure we deal with the long-term unemployment that's out there, which is a huge problem. >> a federal judge backed up
your opinion of the arizona immigration law. the method was wrong. is the mission correct? >> the mission of controlling our immigration process is absolutely correct. and that's why my administration is actually putting more resources on the border to the point where we now have more of everything. border patrols, more overflights, and we have more immigration agents. you name it, we've got more of them on the borders. and we want to work with arizona. i understand the frustrations of people in arizona, but what we can't do is demagogue the issue. and what we can't do is allow a patchwork of 50 different states or cities or localities where anybody who wants to make a name for themselves suddenly says i'm going to be anti-immigrant and i'm going to try to see if i can solve the problem ourselves. this is a national problem.
we've got to use our comprehensive system that not only deals with our border but also deals with the 11 million undocumented workers who are here giving them a pathway so that they can be citizens here in the united states. >> bp is looking like it will take about a $10 billion tax writeoff on the moneys the expending for the gulf cleanup. should they do it? >> my priority has been to make sure that the fishermen, the store owners, the bait shop owners, those folks are made whole. we have gotten a commitment that is almost complete in terms of structure for $20 billion to help them. they are also going to have to pay for the entire cleanup down there. that includes the bills from us, the federal government. so as long as they are meeting their obligations, then my attitude is that they should be treated like other companies
when it comes to where their taxes are. >> we'll have more of the interview in our 8:00 hour. something that was most interesting, the white house is frustrated to a degree, and when we ran some of the we are view on sunday, i said, do you feel like you are not getting the credit you deserve. he said yes. the truth is the gdp is going this way and unemployment is going this way, his approval is going to stay -- >> it is not going the change very much. harry, thanks. mean timing, it is day 105 of the gulf oil disaster. today could be the day the engineers start the static kill to cap the well. there are growing amount os of the massive chemicals used to break up the oil. cbs news correspondent john teague is in grand isle, louisiana, with the very latest. don, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. engineers are making final preparations today to begin the static kill. it will most likely begin early tomorrow but could begin as early as late tonight.
this as the slow gulf recovery continues. is seafood from the gulf of mexico safe to eat? if you ask the chief operating officer of bp, he'll tell you absolutely. >> i have a lot of confidence in the agencies and i trust their recommendations. i would eat the seafood out of the gulf here and would feed it to my family. >> reporter: he took us on a boat tour of beaches and marshes near bp on saturday looking into long-term efforts and expressing confidence that the static kill, that involves pumping heavy mud through the top of the well, will succeed. the procedure is set to begin tuesday. >> after that we still have to finish the relief well. we'll still have to go and intercept the well bore. that's on track for the middle of august. >> reporter: but while subtles praised the response events, the congressional subcommittee said bp used much more chemical dispersant to fight the spill than previously reported. despite an order from the epa to use it rarely.
>> there has been an unprecedented, under water scientific experiment going on for months where toxic chemicals have been shot into toxic oil. >> reporter: still, almost three weeks after bp capped its well, some gulf beaches saw crowds for the first time over the weekend. business owners in pensacola say the worst is over. >> i think we had more tourists. i have noticed a lot of people from out of town being here. it is exciting that we do finally have business. >> reporter: there's progress on that front. meanwhile, work on the static kill is expected to begin very soon, within 24 hours or so. and as we heard, the relief well progress continues. and it could be complete within a week or two. eric snarks. >> don, because the relief well is nearly done at this point, and because this static kill is so complicated, based on the track record here, why is it so important right now for bp to do the static kill at this point?
>> reporter: well, really, a couple of reasons. one, the static kill, if it works, still isn't an absolute permanent solution. they will have to continue with the relief well, but the static kill raises confidence that the relief well will work. and it actually makes it easier for that to work. also, days matter during hurricane season. we saw they lost several days of work because of tropical storm bonnie. so they have good weather right now, they are ready to go with the static kill. they want to do it while they can. >> don teague, thanks. harry? all right. turning back to washington now, for the first time in at least 20 years, two top-ranking democrats could face a public hearing over ethics charges. now, the repercussions could be heard all the way until november. senior white house correspondent bill plain has the story on this. >> reporter: bad news for the democrats on the verge of the full campaign season. the house ethics committee may announce as early as today they are charging representative
maxine waters with retices violations. the california democrat is a member of the financial services committee. she came under scrutiny after setting up a meeting with treasury officials on behalf of the minority-owned bank boston bank one united. a bank to which her husband had financial ties. the bank ultimately got $12 million in bailout money. waters maintains she did nothing wrong and so far has chosen to fight the charges rather than settle. the charges already filed against charlie rangel of new york, there's now the possibility of two ethics trials beginning in september and lasting for weeks. >> count 13, conduct -- >> reporter: rangel was charged with 13 ethics violences, including failing to report income, accepting an improper group of harlem apartments and using funds to name an insty tut in his honor. this could be very bad news for democrats. >> let's remember 2006. it was a half-dozen major
scandals involving republican congressmen that cost republicans control of congress. >> reporter: but so far speaker of the house nancy pelosi is confident. >> are you nervous about november? >> no, i'm not nervous. >> reporter: pelosi is noter in vouts, but she and other party leaders have pushed rangel and waters to settle rather than let this come to public trials. and the president has all but suggested it is time for ran gel to resign. so far rangel and waters say they are innocent and intend to fight. >> bill, thank you very much. the president was talking to us about rangel on friday. >> it seemed pretty clear how he felt about that. >> please retire. >> yes. jeff glor is and the standing by with a look at the news headlines. >> good morning, everyone. federal investigators are due in morning in alaska's denali national park at the site of a plane crash yesterday. smoke jumpers stayed overnight in the park 180 miles north of ang ranl. the twin-engine plane belonged
to a freight company. three people all presumed to die in the crash. one escaped arizona prisoner has been captured, but two are still on the run this morning. the two escaped friday by cutting a hole in a fence. the third was arrested in colorado yesterday after a gun battle with police. a state prison authority says there may have been lax security at the private prison. >> the housing unit that these inmates were in is a dormitory. and it is a meeting and security dormitory that is alarmed. it is supposed to be alarmed. >> officials at the prison and security will be increased. in orbit this morning, the international space station is partly powered down after a vital cooling system failed. the space's six-member crew turned off electrical equipment to avoid overheating. astronauts may have to make emergency spacewalks to replace a cooling pump.
jon kyl is calling for hearings into whether children of illegal aliens should automatically become u.s. citizens. kyle spoke out yesterday on arizona's new immigration law, a portion blocked by a judge last week. on face the nation yesterday, he said hearings should be held into the interpretation of the 14th amendment. >> if you were born in the united states, you are a citizen no matter what. there are limitations on that. for example, the children of diplomats and so on, so the question is, if both parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal behavior. >> kyle says the comprehensive immigration reform won't pass congress until the federal government enforces the current laws. a small earthquake in california's solinas valley. the 3.6 earthquake was centered near king city, 145 miles southwest of san francisco. no reports of injury or damage. in pakistan at least 2 million people have been forced from their homes by a week of deadly flooding. a cbs news correspondent richard
roth reports a swath valley in pakistan is hardest hit. >> reporter: setoff by the heaviest monsoons in memory, the floods described as the deadliest in pakistan in more than 80 years m. the rising water that's covered villages, the government says almost 1,000 people have died. rescue agencies say the numbers at least three times higher. pakistan was heavily invested in fighting islamic terrorism in this part of the swath valley. now there's criticism authorities are responding late, and with too little to meet a growing natural disaster. the u.s. has pledged $10 million in aid and provided 50,000 meals just yesterday, but with bridges down and roads flooded, it said more than 10,000 people today are stranded without shelter, food or drinking water. pakistan says the needs are enormous and urgent. richard roth, cbs news, london. and despite promoting the
city of dubai, it is a global business center, the united arab emirates plans to ban a key business tool, the blackberry. the persian gulf country says it will block blackberry e-mail, messaging and web browsing services. the uea government says the blackberry encrypting system is a security crutch because it is too hard to watch over. i thought security was a good thing when it comes to e-mails and computers. >> i'm out. i can't go without my blackberry. we'll take a look at the weather maps. it is a monday, everybody. let's begin as we take a look at -- actually, areas right around the northern plain states. that's where we'll see the severe threat for weather once again. the combination of the less humid air and higher heat. the low pressure system spins around. we'll watch airport delays ranging from minneapolis and on over to the south and to the west. so we'll just keep an eye on it

here's a good one: state farm insures 40 million drivers. more than geico and progressive combined. i saved because i'm accident-free. of course, with so many ways to save including discounts of up to 40%, having that many customers shouldn't be a surprise. so ask a neighbor about state farm, then call an agent at 1-800-state-farm or go online. good morning. they just turned on the metering lights at the bay bridge toll plaza. but not much need for them as you can see, traffic is really recovered. no delays at all approaching the pay gates. and if you are coming up
northbound 101, eastbound skyway, all lanes have re- opened after an injury accident involving a van. so traffic is good now coming into san francisco on 101 and 280. and as you can see from bay bridge toll plaza. westbound 237 slow and go heading towards silicon valley. that right there is westbound 237 traffic. pretty jammed from 880 to zanker road. and we just got word of an accident this area of hayward. southbound 880 at highway 92 a construction area, traffic is backing up due to an accident on the shoulder. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. forecast for this morning, cloudy, along the coast clouds and drizzle. this is our ocean beach camera. seven-day forecast, sunshine today, plenty of sunshine inland with temperatures near 90. partly sunny skies around the bay and a few low clouds for the coast. little change tuesday but we are cooling down midweek.

circumstance toll see if they could have had anything to do with her stepson's disappearance. first to breaking news. lindsay lohan released hours ago from jail. she is not the morning, and because that's after midnight, she got credit for an extra day served. after serving 14 days of her 90-day sentence, lindsay lohan left the detention facility, released early due to jail overcrowding. she must now spend 90 days at a live-in rehabilitation center. >> you're doing chores all the time, watched all the time, drug tested all the time. >> reporter: tmz reports lohan will be treated for bipolar
disorder and an addiction to crystal meth. her attorney denies that, telling radaronline, it's a fabrication, 100%. but lohan's probation report lists five powerful drugs currently prescribed to the actress, including adderall, diladid and zoloft. >> they're hard to get off. they'll require a lot of time, energy and a good doctor to help somebody get off those medications. >> reporter: the rehab was ordered for her probation violation for a pair of dui arrests in 2007. she's expected to foot the bill for treatment, $10,000 to $15,000 a month. if she violates any rules, the judge could send her back to jail. >> i respect you. i've been taking it seriously. >> reporter: since july 20th she's been isolated in a cell like this one, no phone, computer or cigarettes. reality tv star alexis near yaled for her role in the celebrity bling ring robberies
claims she could hear lohan crying in the next cell. . lohan will have a strict routine, starting at 7:00 each morning. she requested a 24-hour break before reporting to the facility but the ju offering yoga, but apparently the judge nixed that idea. >> thank you. joining us child psychologist. we know there is substance abuse treatment going on. if it is these two things at once, how does that complicate the treatment? >> we should know that bipolar disorder is a very serious illness, about 1% of the teenage or young adult population.
and, unfortunately, it's so serious that it has the highest suicide rate of any psychiatric illness as well as having very high rates of substance abuse. so, when you have this illness, you are periods of time, sometimes as long as two weeks, where you're as high as can be, you are hypersexual, spending too much money, and your judgment is so poor that you're putting yourself at risk. and then when you come back down to baseline or even lower, you are so, so crazed that you feel so terrible and so irritable that you start to self-medicate. these illnesses have been around for years, joshua logan, petition duke. often very creative people have these illnesses but without lithium or other kinds of medicine to keep them stable, they can't function. >> if someone needs those other medications to keep them stable but fighting a substance abuse problem, i mean, is it okay? we know she has prescription drugs going in. is that going to help or hurt her treatment for other
substance abuse issues? >> so, this is going to be a long haul. so, someone who has two problems, which is often what happens with people who have bipolar disorder, they have to get clean first. basically, the first few weeks, first 28 days, so to speak, is getting someone clean. understanding why they need those medicines. can they sleep in can they concentrate? why they crave something? and being in a contained, secure are virlt. thenening their symptoms. so, do they really have this psychiatric illness that has been masked over by all these drugs they're taking. >> you mention a secure facil y facility. one of the reasons i understand she's going to the ucla medical facility instead of this other place she wanted to be, it's more secure, less cushy. how important is that to treatment in. >> it's most important to be at the best place. ucla department of psychiatry is one of the best facilities in the united states. on any one of these rankings, whether it's u.s. world and news report or any of the other
rankings. what makes that happen is that they have one of the best training programs. they have secure facilities. but they also have expertise in both mood disorders as well as substance abuse. >> how confident are you that 90 days, based on what you've seen, and i know you haven't treated her directly, but is 90 days enough to set her on the road to recovery and hopefully a healthy lifestyle? >> i think it's an individual thing. it seems most patients with these disorders have a lot of trouble accepting them. times they have to really hit bottom more than once to say i have something wrong with me. most teenagers and young adults want to be just like everyone else. the last thing they want to do is say, i'm sick, i have to take a pill the rest of my life. this is a hard one, and i think it's particularly difficult if you're a movie star and everyone's watching you. it's hard enough if you just have to dpeel with your family. but when the world's watching, it's so much more complicated. >> added attention. thank you for your speert tease. we appreciate it. now, here's dave with a check of the weather. >> 7:36 right now.

rental diamonds. there's adornbrides.com, you get real diamonds. she's wearing six carats of indictments here between her earrings and bracelets. you know, we have some more here. >> how much does it cost to rent them? >> about $225 for her whole look. to have diamonds for the day. >> if you buy cubic zirconia, you spend that much. if i had only known. >> rental diamonds. >> a lot of attention on not just the bride's dress, mother of the bride. secretary clinton wearing oscar de la renta. >> a custom made from any big designer will cost that. it was gorgeous. part was the color, the plum/magenta color. on the bottom were flower appliques. >> that's what you found for our less expensive version. if we can bring out our model. >> it's a beautiful -- you couldn't see this in a lot of pictures but we had a great shot that showed it was this
