s.e.a.l. about how this mission was executed. rudy giuliani talks about the possibility of a new terror attack early tuesday may 3 rrd, 2011. welcome to "the welcome to "the early show" live pictures of the twin towers. the twin tower footprints in the middle of your screen, the centerpiece of the 9/11 memorial. good morning, i'm chris wragge, erica hill, a few miles south at ground zero above the scene for us right now. good morning, erica. >> good morning, as you mentioned, we're right above the scene that you just set for us ten years after 9/11. we want to look closer at what happened over the weekend in the killing of osama bin laden. president obama has decided to come here on thursday to mark the death of osama bin laden. this is after a rare bipartisan standing ovation at an event last night.
when he comes here thursday, he'll be meeting with families of the victims of 9/11. bill plante has more for us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. good morning, erica. the president wants to mark the death of bin laden ten years with the meeting of the families on thursday at ground zero. last night, there was a dinner for members of both parties of congress here at the white house. there was a mood seldon seen. the president remarked on this feeling of national unity. he said he hoped it would continue. >> i know that unity we felt on 9/11 has frayed a little bit over the years and i have no illusions about the difficulties of the debates that we will have to be engaged in in the weeks and months to come. but i know there have been several moments like this during the course of this year that have brought us together as an american family, whether it was the tragedy in tucson or most
recently our unified response to the terrible storms that have taken place in the south. last night was one of those moments. >> and the mood last night here in the white house was one very seldom seen. the president did get a standing ovation from members of both parties of congress. erica? >> bill, we're also learning a little bit more about the mood and about what happened at the white house on sunday as all of this is unfolding. talk us through some of that if you would. >> take a look at these pictures. they're extraordinary. these pictures are from inside the white house situation room on sunday afternoon as the operation was going down. they showed the president and his national security team watching the attack as it unfolded. remember, this mission was in the planning stages for months and mr. obama's top counterterrorism advisor john brennan said yesterday it lasted 40 minutes. each one of the minutes felt more like a day. one of the people in the room heard a commander on the scene
in pakistan utter the words, geronomo, ekia. geronomo was the name for bin laden, ekia means enemy killed in action. we are also told at one point that the president watching what was unfolding said quietly, we got him. erica? >> the pictures tell quite a tale. bill plante at the white house. we'll speak to john brennan a little more about that meeting. detail this is morning about the top-secret operation that killed osama bin laden. national correspondent david martin was at the pentagon with the latest on that angle. we're learning that it was in fact a courier that led the u.s. intelligence to this compound as far back as august. but how were they able to track it? >> well, they got his nickname from their interrogation of the al qaeda operatives. and some of these were operatives like khalid sheikh mohammed held in the cia prisons where they were subjected to water boarding.
first they got the nickname. then they were able about four years ago to get the real name and sometime after that, they got his cell phone number. they started to track the cell phone. he would turn off the cell phone anytime he got anywhere near the compound. so for some years, they were listening for this cell phone. and it never showed up in any place that would correlate with the compound. and then last summer, he made a mistake. he left the phone on and all it took was one phone call to give away the location of the compound. >> lucky for many folks, he did do that. so they had the compound but there were actually -- it seems as if few humans on the ground because they couldn't be too con speckus here. how did they determine it was
osama bin laden that was, in fact, in the compound. >> just from the fortress-type nature of the compound, they were pretty sure that some important terrorist figure was living there. so then they put it under surveillance by satellite and they would see this man go out of the house and go around the courtyard as if it was his daily exercise. he looked to be a tall man. you couldn't tell from the photos if he was the exact same height as bin laden. it was part of this circumstantial case they were building. they watched the compound day after day until they could find three families, the courier's family, the brother's family, and the third family looked to be the same size as the family they thought bin laden was living with -- another piece of circumstantial evidence. there never was a smoking gun. it all led up to concluding that that is most likely bin laden's
hiding place. >> thanks. david martin at the pentagon, thanks. john brennan was in the room with the president and other officials watching that mission unfold in real time. he joins us this morning from the white house. sir, good morning. >> good morning, erica. >> there have been a number of requests for proof of osama bin laden's death. you talked about potentially releasing that. where does that stand this morning? will we see any of that? >> we're still evaluating what information we're going to put out -- additional information. we have put out the results of the dna testing, the facial recognition. details about the raid itself, what we're doing now as far as the exploitation of materials that we found. so any type of a photographic or a video material that we have, we're looking at it carefully to put it out, to make sure it's in the right condition.
and also to understand what the implications are of such relief. one of the things we have the responsibility to do is to make sure we take measures to guard against any type of adverse reaction to the news of bin laden's death. we've done that in a prudent way overseas and in the homeland here. so in the coming days, we'll continue to look at releasing additional information. >> it does sound like one of the considerations in terms of that release is, in fact, retaliation? >> i think alokay do qaeda has demonstrated it is intent on carrying out murderous attacks against men, women, and children. they may try to use the occasion of bin laden's demise to justify these attacks. what they want to do is make sure we proceed thoughtfully and fully knowing what the potential reaction might be. and take those measures that we can before releasing additional information. >> cbs news correspondent pat milton is reporting that this
raid yields a huge amount of material, things like computer hard drives which could, of course, contain important intelligence information. do you have any sense at this point of how active osama bin laden was leading up to his death? >> i think that the information was that he was in the compound for the past five or six years and he had virtually no interaction with others outside of that compound. but yet he seemed to be very active inside the compound. we know he released videos and audios. we know he was in contact with some senior al qaeda officials. so what we're trying to do now is understand what he had been involved in in the last several years, exploit the information we were able to get in the compound, and take that information and continue to efforts to destroy al qaeda. you are looking at the plan
information but people as well. >> you watched all of this unfold. i believe at one point you said the minutes ticked by like days. what was it like to be in that room? >> well, i think everybody in that room who was involved in putting this operation together and supporting the president when he made his decision to go forward with it, they understood the different phases of the operation. they were looking to ensure that the phases were unfolding as planned. we were concerned about some type of reaction on the ground, if there was going to be extended fire fights or people were going to come from inside the compound. we were hoping to move forward and get people out. the president was concerned with the safety of those who took the compound. so it was a very tense time, a very intense period of time and we were holding our breaths. ultimately, it came out very well and the individuals who
were involved in this performed flawlessly. >> john brennan, thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> chris, back over to you. thank you. we want to go to abbottabad, pakistan where osama bin laden was found and killed. elizabeth palmer just came back from visiting the hideout there. she joins us with the very latest. elizabeth, good morning. >> hi, there. we've just come back from the house which is some distance behind me in a rural area, a suburb that's still almost farmland. and the house that is being described as not really. an enormous wall around it with barbed wire. the neighbors say they were discrete, hardly talked to anybody at all. now that the pakistani army has allowed access to the house, the alleys around it were filled with neighbors gauking. they can't believe they were
living next to the world's most wanted man. we finally heard from president zardari. he underlined that pakistan had no part in the capture of bin laden. it's an embarrassment for him. because here in abbottabad, there are 140,000 people retired or on active duty. he was literally living under their noses. >> is there a concern that the situation on the ground could ignite at any point? >> reporter: well, it could. there are many sympathizers of osama bin laden. there was small demonstration yesterday by a radical is la mist group. all of the embassies are closed. the u.s. embassy is closed and the government is braced for attacks. but, so far, there hasn't been any extra violence. chris? >> elizabeth palmer in abbottabad, pakistan for us. thank you. even before the killing of osama bin laden, the u.s. and pakistan had a rocky relationship.
what happens now with so many questions about which side pakistan is really on. let's get more from cbs chief foreign force upon dent, lar ra logan. good morning. billions of dollars flow to pakistan annually. as far as u.s. pakistani relations, is the u.s. taxpayer getting their money's worth? >> doesn't look like that way, does it? when the world's most wanted man is living in the arms of the military and the intelligence services, it certainly would look to american taxpayers, how can we be funding pakistan when people like osama bin laden are given shelter on their soil? what's interesting about this, chris, is that for years this has been a broadly accepted fact. and now that you see the reality that osama bin laden literally was in pakistani soil and not just in hardship living in a cave living on nuts and berries, he was living comfortably in what is known as the keenest
city in pakistan after the capital. the americans are not getting a good return on their investment and the pakistanis have some explaining to do. >> i want to talk to you about this op-ed from the president of pakistan. elizabeth palmer made mention of it. in this op ed, he said he country has been helpful in counterterrorism, intelligence. is anyone buying that? >> this is an argument they made successfully for the last ten years. it is the reason the u.s. has allowed them to get away with so much. the truth of it is, yes, there are pakistanis civilians that have been killed, a large number and pakistani security forces. but that's going after the terrorist groups that have devoted themselves to getting rid of the pakistani government and changing the situation inside of pakistan. in other words, the group that threatens the pakistani government.
the other groups that threaten the united states interest, like the afghan taliban, the taconi brothers from eastern afghanistan and the militant group formed by pakistan to fight against india over kashmir these groups that are responsible. if you walk in arlington cemetery past the fresh graves of american soldiers coming back from the field over there, pakistan has some of the blood on its hands. they need to answer for that. for too long, the u.s. has stood back saying we fear the breakup of pakistan. pakistan is doing everything they can. clearly they're not doing everything they can. and, more importantly, they're not doing the things that count. president zardari and others, of course, they are going to say this. they have been caught with their pants down. they are in hot water. know know it. as diplomatic as the u.s. has been publicly, you can bet it's been a different story behind the scenes. >> lara logan in washington for us. thank you.
switching gears, marisol castro joins us with weather on this tuesday morning. good morning, chris, good morning to you at home. we want to show you some thunderstorms that folks can expect today as the storm system continues to move in an eastward direction from roanoke to baltimore. even portions of new york state expected to see some of the severe

welcome back to "the early show" at the top of the hour on a tuesday morning. you're looking at a live shot now at ground zero. you're at ground zero this morning down in lower manhattan as we continue the coverage of the killing of osama bin laden. i'm erica hill. just ahead, we'll take a look at the compound in pakistan. cbs news had an opportunity to go inside. we'll bring that to you in a bit. fear and chaos gripped new york on september 11, 2001, then mayor rudy giuliani. lead the city's heroic response. he responds. and he's going to talk about the possible threat of retaliation
and what should be done to keep americans safe. we've got that coming up in a couple of minutes. erica, back to you in ground zero. >> looking forward to him, thanks. we want to get you to the latest at this hour. we doe doe know that later today leon panetta will brief on the leaders on the operation that killed ohs's. u.s. officials have considered releasing the photos of his body and burial at sea to prove he's dead. pakistan's president zardari rejects that his country knew where osama bin laden was. and in afghanistan, cheering the death of the leader who live there had for years. we're in kabul this morning. >> we're cheering but not getting overly excited. there's no illusion here that the killing of osama bin laden and any way shortens this war. and there's little finger waving going on as well. president karzai said what pakistan is saying all along
that the strategy ought to be adjusted left by the villages and the houses of afghanistan and more attacking in what he calls the safe haven of pakistan. and, in fact, both the taliban and the afghanistan government here acknowledge that many fighters and weapons and funds come across that very porous border. in fact, the afghans have said they intercepted and killed and wounded another 25 taliban fighters just last night. the taliban, for its sake, says it's prepared to continue the battle here, that the death of osama bin laden in their words will heighten emotions and not diminish them. cheering here at the base of osama bin laden and saying it's time to go home -- but not so fast. erica? >> in kabul, thanks. chief foreign affairs correspondent lara logan.
going to get to lara in a minute. but first i want to give you an inside look at the compounds there. where osama bin laden was found and killed. liz got a look for us this morning. take a look, liz? >> you can see the upper story of the house where osama bin laden had been hiding and where he was killed. we're in the outskirts of abbottabad here right now. so quiet that there is an orphanage over there. there's a tall concrete wall all the way around and barbed wire all the way around the top. inside the compound, it was quite large, there's room for both american helicopters to land, that's where the fire fight took place and all of the bodies were collected and removed by the americans.
the house has been sealed bid the pakistani army. but we have talked to some of the neighbors and asked them who the people are who were living there as far as they were concerned. they said they were people from a little bit west of here, very quiet, very discrete, that explained the high security by saying they had enemies in the tribal areas and they needed this to keep them safe. since the army has allowed people to come and look at the house, the streets are full. people are gawking. they can't believe that the world's most wanted man was living in their midst. there's no talk of it because it doesn't become a shrine to osama bin laden. elizabeth palmer, cbs news, abbottabad. with us is chief correspondent lara logan. good morning. >> good morning. >> we know they didn't inform the pakistanis before they went in into this compound here is there a concern that the pakistani government knew it could foil this operation? >> there must have been some concern like that. given the fact where this compound was right in the arms of pakistani military establishments.
and there has been growing mistrust between the united states and pakistan. given the fact it's been in america and afghanistan for so many years now. and high sensitivity, they weren't going to do anything to breach and prevent this from going down. >> what would the pakistanis gain, though? they knew osama bin laden was there from hiding that information. >> it wouldn't be the first nation to play both sides. the iranians are experts at doing this. and, of course, the afghans have said for years that osama bin laden is pakistan's money card. but most significantly, this elevated the status of pakistan. it's able to sit at the table with the united states and other western power and this is a tiny country with a massive illiterate population. most of the women in pakistan can't read or write and it's given them an elevated status
and allowed them to dictate the national security country of the united states and lead the u.s. around by the nose. there's a lot from pakistan to gain from this. but the arabs have a saying when you allow a snake to live in your garden, eventually it's going come into your house. pakistan has dealt with some of that as the terrorist threat a few years ago suddenly began to threaten them as well. that wasn't on the cards when they started to support militant groupings. >> you mentioned both sides. members on capitol hill were suggesting that. at the end of the day, the relationship between the u.s. and pakistan is very important to both countries. so how do you keep that going moving forward? >> this is at the lowest point in years. the u.s. is mindful of this. you can hear it in the president's statement, all of
them making forward for the pakistanis when they talk about intelligence. there are other significant terrorist leaders still inside pakistan. the afghan taliban really shadow government operates from pakistan as well. that's where the afghan war is run from. and this is a critical time in afghanistan where there is little political will in the united states. and few americans believe it can be won. so now is the time for the u.s. to leverage this and say to the pakistanis, okay, this has gotten -- this era of shelter and harboring our enemies comes to an end. if you are our ally, now you have to prove it. >> lara logan in washington for us. thanks. head back to the studio. mari looks at the weather. good morning. >> good morning, everyone at home. flooding rain has been an issue and the army corps of engineers blew up a levee to try to save

center was attacked on bin laden's order almost ten years ago, rudy giuliani was the mayor. he talks about what it means. good morning. >> good morning. >> you led the city through its darkest days. what was your reaction when you found out the news? oh. >> my reaction is one of deep satisfaction. relief. that we had gotten him. certain amount of revenge that you don't want to admit to. it's there. the guy deserved what he got. after reflecting on it, realizing there's short term danger for us because of the kind of emotional hold that he had on the people that followed him. long term, this is an all positive development for us. meaning they can help us be safer. but short term, we're going to go through a period where we have to be careful. >> i think you said there's no such thing as closure. and something like this doesn't
bring back the 3,000 lives lost on that day. but from the emotional standpoint and personal standpoint, did it take time to sink in when you first heard the news? >> yes. no such thing as closure because when you lose somebody you love for the rest of your life, the gap is there. but there are things that helped. and this helps. i mean, there's no question that bringing to justice a person who's primarily responsible for it satisfied a basic need that goes on. this is a big step, it's not a small step. a big step in the war against terror too. >> the people in new york yesterday, i'm sure you saw the response. here in new york and around the nation. but specifically here in new york. they were with the iron workers. they said, you know, for the first time all around, it's smiles all around. almost felt like a new day. >> something positive is now happened. this is very, very negative. the defense has been terrific.
meaning our military and president bush and president obama had done a good job of defending us. but we haven't had this kind of positive thing for quite sometime. so i think it's a sense of real relief from that. the only thing i should caution is we shouldn't celebrate too much. this is just a step, a big one. but the war is still going on. we shouldn't fool ourselves into thinking this is like ve day or vj day. we haven't won this war yet. i don't like this thought of pulling out of afghanistan or iraq, people make mistakes like this a lot. you win part of it and you walk away and it reseeds. >> a long way to go in pakistan and afghanistan to clean it up. we should for our safety in the long term. >> how troubling that he seemed to be hiding in plain sight. >> very? >> very troubling. not shocking. i've been to that part of the world. so i have a sense of how it operates. karzai a few years ago and
discussed the problems in pakist pakistan. so these are the things we've known about in four or five years. the cooperation of the afghanis and the americans there complain about. >> with the money we sent to pakistan, is there -- >> it's outrageous that you would live not quite in plain sight, but hard not to figure out that this was something having to do with -- with osama bin laden and that part of the world. this big compound, multimillion dollar estate, cars going in and out all of the time. strange-looking people going in and out all of the time. this is a country that keeps track through the secret service and secret police. it keeps track of what the heck is going on. i have real, real problem with this. >> close a small chapter for you? >> closes a big chapter. doesn't close it. but it closes a big chapter. the anger and the desire to get revenge. and the desire to show the united states is deceptive.
americans are proud of the president's decision, the work that president bush did to lead up to this. the intelligence services working. the s.e.a.l.s that went in and did this. this is an all plus for everybody in this situation. this is the kind of thing that makes americans feel this is the greatest country on earth. no one else could have done this. >> thank you. good to see you this morning. coming up next, the man in charge of protecting millions of americans from a possible terror attack here in new york city. police commissioner ray kelly. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. flexpen comes pre-filled with the insulin i take and i can dial the exact dose of insulin i need. i live my life on the go and need an on-the-go insulin. i don't need to carry a cooler with flexpen. novolog is a fast-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes. do not inject novolog if you do not plan to eat within 5 to 10 minutes after injection to avoid low blood sugar. tell your healthcare provider about all medicines you take

just got a lot tough er? >> not a lot tougher but good news with complications. we knew there would simply be a possibility of the retaliatory effort here in new york. we had to do some additional things. we put a lot of things in place here. we have to do more. >> how do you protect a city like this. you get 3/4 of a million people passing through grand central. millions of tourists and how -- how is it possible? >> big police department. big technology as never used before. our citizens' help, of course, we asked them to be vigilant and watchful. we had 12 plots against this city since september 11, 2001. they've all been stopped in one way or the other. it's not as if they're not trying. so far, so good here in new york.
>> i heard that luck is a big part of it. this big the one-year anniversary of the times square bomber, luck does play a significant role in thwarting some of these efforts. >> absolutely. we'll take it every time. >> you talk about this city now being a different level of preparedness than it was in 2001. how is this city prepared as it wasn't in 2001. >> we prepare thousands of police officers. we have heavily armed officers going to sensitive locations throughout the city. we have additional programs in our subway system. we have 5 million people a day travel on the -- on the subway system. we have radiological detectors that we have well over 1,000 deployed every day. we have them on our boats, we have them in our helicopters. so the city has come, you know, a long way since 2001.
but the job is never done. we continue to hope and refine our skills. >> you talked ant deficiencies too. you said a 16-year-old with a cell phone has better communications skills than some of our first responders. there's a big room for improvement. >> we're trying to get d-block, additional broad band space for law enforcement, not just in new york but throughout the country. congress is looking at that now. i made that as a statement in the congressional testimony. >> as far as the heightened level of security in the city right now, how much longer do you think the people will see the increased police presence? or do you think it's something here for the long term? >> good question. we have to judge it day-by-day. we have the listening posts out across the world. we have ne hyork city police officers in 11 cities overseas. we have the make the judgments on a daily basis. and we won't be able to keep this level indefinitely.
but we'll make that judgment each day as we go ,,,, i'm done with all these lists. and driving all over town. i want one list. for one store.

>> good effort. thanks again. one year ago today, yardley love was found beaten to death in her college apartment. her boyfriend george hugely faces murder charges. "glamour" magazine is launching "tell somebody," a campaign to tell somebody about relationship abuse. we have a survivor of relationship abuse. why did your magazine choose to take on relationship abuse? >> we covered the death of yardley love last year. and it was a horrifying case. but what we saw was it kept happening again and again. so here in new york. the headlines kept coming. why is this happening now? why in 2011 when women are more empowered than ever before. >> how wide spread is my question. >> we did a survey that found it's very wide spread. not only are 1400 women killed every year, but 29% of women in our survey reported relationship
abuse. then we went on to ask about behaviors that they experienced and another 30% reported that they had been physically abused, emotionally abused. that means nearly 60% of women are experiencing relationship abuse. >> what is the difference between relationship abuse and domestic abuse, which is something people are more familiar with. >> people are familiar with domestic violence. that's usually defined as couples who are married. and that's kind of a misnomer because this is common in dating women and women who are living together. so we need to broaden our definitions. >> you were in an abusive dating relationship for a period of time. i think the question people have as well, if it's bad, why not remove yourself from the situation. what was your situation like? >> i think it's very common everyone ask why didn't you just leave. but when you're in that type of situation, you're so brainwa brainwashed. i really thought i had nowhere to go. my family tried to intervene,
but he would always listen to every phone conversation and twist what they said meaning they didn't love me or they hated me. he would control every aspect of my life. >> how bad did the abuse go? >> the final night he tried to kill me and told me he was killing me. i had to go to work the following day and the co-worker, one of the managers intervened. but the overall relationship, it was only -- nearly five months, not even five months, and there's emotional abuse, verbal abuse, physical and sexual. >> talk about the campaign in exactly what all it's about. >> tell somebody is designed for cases like alexandria where she said it was a co-worker who intervened. someone reached out to her and said you're not alone, there is help. tell somebody about it. if you see it happening to somebody else, tell somebody. reach out. help them. we set out a mobile giving campaign to make sure every woman has a place to turn.
the national domestic violence hot line has 80,000 calls last year went unanswered because of lack of funding. so we hope that everyone will text "tell now" to 85944 and that will give a $10 donation to the hot line. for every donation, avon foundation is going to match it up to $200,000. >> for people who are watching right now that are experiencing something similar, what advice would you have for them. what signs would you tell them to be most alert for. >> definitely to listen to your gut. i know that sounds silly but it's true. i told myself, don't see this guy again. but he convinced me otherwise. any aspect of controlling. if he's reading all of your text messages, listening to your phone calls. wanting to know where you are every second. and then definitely tell someone and get out. it's not easy. it can be very dangerous to tell someone. and you just know that there are people there for you and there's a way to get out. and i got out and it's been six
years. >> you owe a lot to that co-worker? >> i do. she was my angel. >> she was the best. best of luck with the campaign. good to talk to both of you. windy naugle and alexandria briggs. go to our website, earlyshow.cbsnews.com. now here's jeff. do you know what's in your favorite over-the-counter pain reliever? turns out 41% of people read the label according to a new study. so dr. travis stork is here to tell us how to stay safe. you see travis as co-host of "the doctors," which we watch in our offices after the "early show" is over. good morning, welcome. >> thanks for having me. i appreciate it. >> the numbers are interesting. 41% of people don't read. it leads you to the conclusion if they're not reading it, they may overdose because they don't know how much is in it. that's a big danger? >> back before i went to medical school and i went to the over-the-counter shelves and
grabbed a few things here and there. i asked you to close your eyes and gave you a bunch of pills and said, jeff, take these, would you? >> of course. >> i'm a doctor. >> i get what you're saying. >> we're going to supermarkets, pharmacies, taking the medicines. we don't know what's in them. tylenol, half of the folks didn't know what the ingredients were. but further more, motrin, the active ingredients, they're the same thing. taking more of the same medication as they should. down the road could lead to liver failure, that sort of thing. >> acetaminophen delivers danger. >> it's the number one cause of acute liver failure here in this country. unfortunately it's due to many times accidental overdoses.
more than half are due to accidental overdoses. prescription and nonprescription have acetaminophen in it. if you're not reading the label, you could take two, three different medicines with acetaminophen and cause liver damage and not know it. >> the problem is not taking one medication but three different medcations that you think are different but have same ingredie ingredients. you have to watch out for yourself first of all. but one of the big concerns we talked about here for my wife and i, we're giving my son something. 18 months old. people give their kids doses. how to make sure you're giving the right dose. this is something you're more worried about. you have an example to show what people can get and how people can give out the wrong doses. >> a lot of times it wrong doses and if a medicine says fever producer, parents need to know what is that fever producer. four different teaspoons.
