7:09 am
after that accident. very involved. we have recent pictures of that ferry just taken. the investigation will continue in new jersey. as we say things back to normal in lower manhattan today. but the theme here at the docks yesterday took a troubling turn. the crash occurred while the catamaran was dodging after a routine crossing of the new york bay. >> what it did, it mitt hit the right side of the boat on the docks hard like a bomb. >> reporter: many of the vessel's 326 passengers had been standing in the aisles and waiting to disembark when the high-speed ferry slammed into the dock. the impact was so strong it shattered glass and threw score of people in the air. hurling them down stairs and crash them into walls. >> next thing i knew i opened my eyes and i was on the floor six
7:10 am
or ten feet away from where i was standing. i was trying to catch my breath because i couldn't breathe. i got the wind knocked out of me. >> reporter: at least 74 people were transported to hospitals in britain. at least seven of those with serious injuries. >> there was a lot of glass and metal that people were unfortunate to hit. i was one of the fortunate ones. >> reporter: officials said all five crew members were able to assist in the operation. the captain was a veteran ferry operator who has been with the company since 1997. >> jason has been with us a long time. but the national transportation safety board will be going over every edge of this. >> reporter: investigators will be looking into the record of the vessel itself which was refitted with a new propeller system last year to make it more fuel efficient. >> we're here to figure out what happened to prevent it from
7:11 am
happening again. that's why we're here. >> reporter: right after the accident, all five crew members tested, alcohol determined not to be a factor in the crash yesterday. all five crew members will also be interviewed a little later today by investigators to who continue to try to piece together exactly what happened here. charlie. >> tim, thank you. in washington hamid karzai meets with leon panetta. they meet at the white house where officials say they may pull all troops out of afghanistan by next year. joining us military analyst. good morning. >> give us assessment of your option. no american troops after the withdrawal at 2014. >> i think that would be an option that would probably lead to an afghan government under
7:12 am
pressure from taliban, perhaps, al qaeda. you know the world in a vacuum i think that would start to leave a vacuum by the government to be filled by taliban for sure and result in afghanistan that is found before the turn of the century. >> you would recommend against it? >> if i were still in office yes, i would. i think there's potential in afghanistan to make the place a lot more secure with the afghan forces but it will take more time than we have currently. >> why do you think the white house may see it differently? >> i think part of it is there's always a tension between getting afghans to take responsibility for their own actions, and making sure they're doing all they can and not overly relying on u.s. and allied forces. i think part of what we're seeing is playing out probably in the media here is to put some pressure on the karzai
7:13 am
government to be realistic about their expectations and make sure afghans are doing all they can to ensure their own security. >> what might come out of the karzai visit? >> i hope one of the things that would come out of it is some sort of agreement on what status forces agreement might come out of talks. because that was a step that failed in iraq and why we had to pull our troops all of our troops out of iraq because we could never agree on legal status of u.s. troops in iraq. i think if you talk to iraqi leadership today, they regret they were not able to come to some port of agreement with the united states on that. i would hope that at least part of what they talked about is the status of forces and who has the legal jurisdiction over the u.s. forces that are left behind. >> so you hope what happens, didn't happen in iraq would happen in afghanistan. >> i think it's essential, if we have any presence past 2014 and if there's going to be that
7:14 am
kind of help that's going to be given to the afghan government. >> and the issue of al qaeda, there's a lot of talk now, that in mali you're having a stronger and stronger presence. that's alarming. >> it's alarming for a long time. this is something we worried about jim jones, who was in the supreme allied commander in europe and i talked about this a lot. it's i have disturbing that they've gotten to the point that they have. mali was a peaceful nation they've got a tradition of resolving conflict through dialogue and negotiation. and that's all been turned on its head now with the al qaeda affiliates working in that part of the world. >> it seems to me it's something that we should take action on actually. >> speaking -- action? >> well this is -- mali does not have the resources to deal with this themselves. so whether it's an african
7:15 am
force, whether it's a u.n. force. somebody needs to pay attention to this. a once peaceful people have been totally -- their lives have been totally turned upside-down. somebody should take action and not just stand by and watch another country fall to extremist views. >> thank you very much. the baseball hall of fame introduced new members. they sent this chilling message. >> they accused playersrejected players suspected of using steroids. >> for the first time in years, they did not elect anyone in cooperstown. >> reporter: making that remarkable. two of the year's all-time greats barry bonds and roger clemens were shut out. >> when i found out they weren't elected, i was stunned. i was stunned. >> reporter: bill rhoden is a
7:16 am
sports columnist for "the new york times." >> i saw he's guys generational superstars. 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, these guys great. >> reporter: others call them cheaters tied to the steroid era although neither player was ever proven to use performance-enhancing drugs but the hall of fame voters had a clear message to players of that era. not only did they resoundingly reject bonds and clemens but sammy sosa too. >> these guys and women took it upon themselves to do what the court system could not do. punish them. that's complete nonsense. >> reporter: bonds and clemens fell far short of the 75% vote needed. bonds receiving 36 point 2 percent and clemens 37 point 6 percent and society sa a meager 12 point 5 percent. the job of the guy voting for
7:17 am
the hall of fame is basically look at numbers. who is worthy? if not to bring my personal prejudice goo the voting. >> clemens reacting by thanking his fans and friends on his twitter page saying to those who took the time to look at the facts, we very much appreciate it. all three players will get another shot at baseball immortality next year but if this year's vote is any indication, they will need a dramatic shift in attitude to have a chance. for "cbs this morning" bill whit whitaker los angeles. the redskins are under fire to change their name. saying it is a racial slur. the redskins resisted the name but the mayor said they may have to find a new name first. the fda is considering more

7:29 am
you know what was on earlier tonight, ladies and gentlemen, like i need to tell you here on cbs live was the annual cbs people's award show. how about that. i was nominated, and, darn i was defeated in my category by brent muss burger. the category was creepiest old guy. darn. >> you knew a joke was coming there. welcome back to "cbs this morning." the vice president's task force on gun violence considers new gun control laws. a prominent tv figure finds himself at the heart of the controversy. >> it's lit a firestorm. gun enthusiasts are trying to force him out of the united states and the white house is weighing in. >> let me just challenge you on that. >> reporter: piers morgan's
7:30 am
crusade against gun violence in america has been since before sandy hook. after july's shooting in aurora he said the time for debate had passed. >> i'll tell you the date of the debate. it would have been yesterday to prevent this happening. >> reporter: but it was last month's massacre in newtown when morgan's outrage boiled over. >> how many more people have to die before you guys say we want less guns not more. >> reporter: the cnn's host from bryn refused to contain his anger. >> i honestly don't understand why you would rather have victims be victim of a crime than be able to defend themselves. it's incomprehensible. >> you're an unbelievably stupid man, aren't you? >> reporter: they cried for morgan's deportation. more than 100 thousand signed on. the white house signed on tuesday saying no one should be punished by the government simply because he or she expressed a view on the second
7:31 am
amendment. all this week morgan has begun his show before large "guns in america" banner fully taking on the divisive issue anywhere more fully than face to face with the talk show host who calls for deportation. >> i'm here to tell you. 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. doesn't matter how many beg to take them. we will not relinquish them do you understand. >> how many gun bans were there in britain last year? >> how many chimpanzees can dance on a head of a pin? i already went over the answer. >> do you know the answer. >> i don't know. very low. >> you said hundreds. >> yes. >> you said 35. >> the point is. >> it's 11,000. do you understand -- >> yeah. england wants to ban knives now. >> it's clear morgan is ready for a long battle. >> piers morgan now joins us
7:32 am
here in studio 57. welcome. >> thank you for having me. it's delightful the setup here. i'd expect nothing else. >> what have you accomplished? >> i think the main thing is normally after the massacres -- i joined -- as gayle said earlier, i joined cnn a week after gabby giffords was shot in the head. i couldn't believe coming from a country with gun control, the re, a was like a week of mourning for the six who died and gabby giffords who, thank goodness lived, and they moved on. there's been massacre after massacre. the tipping point was sandy hook. know what's going to happen here. there'll be a week of mourning a week of gun control, the nra and lobbyists will get sbiend behind -- they'll have the debate. more guns will be sold as they were in december. more ammunition will be told and so this terrible spiral goes on.
7:33 am
what we've done by keeping the agenda that we have this week is we've made sure this hasn't gone away, and that's the crucial thing that and do you believe by having conversations or debate like you did with alex jones that that exposes what? >> i think it exposes reality of how sections of americans feel about this debate and what they try and do is they try to frame anybody who wants more gun control. they're attacking the constitution attacking the second amendment. you're not going to grab my guns. that is not what this is about. i don't want to take an american's right away to defend himself or hers or their family. that's a sacred right to americans. i understand that and respect that. but u what i do want to do is a three-fold thing. i want to get these guns off the streets. we have civilians killing themselves. you have the home in aurora with 100 bullet magazines.
7:34 am
capable of mass murder in a minute. it's senseless. >> someone says when you have someone that extreme on it diffuses the debate because it got so out of control so quickly. what it did do is trended widely on twitter for 48 hours. that means it had a lot of eye balls. the youtube clip has been seen 5 million times. this debate must be heard loud and clear so that the gults against gun control are laid to bear which in my view is a dangerous farce. >> what do you think of the white house's issue to deportation? >> obviously i woke up. the president wants me to stay in america. it's bad news for the americans, good news for the brits. >> if they didn't change the gun law, you might go back. >> i have a young family. like anyone with a young family you're looking at all these things. my daughter is 1 year's old.
7:35 am
when she goes to an elementary school in possibly three years, do i feel secure? this is half an hour from connecticut. i decided, no i'm going to make a stand on it. it's not going to make me popular with some people but i also found a little support. i think a lot of americans after sandy hook think enough. i think the president shares that view. i think you have to get rid of the assault weapons, get rid of the high-capacity magazines, get more mental health and the nra has got to stand up. >> what is your passion for this come from? >> 1996 in dunblane scotland 15, 16 children were murdered in their classroom. britain rose up in horror. it wasn't a political issue at all. that's why i'm amazed it's here. the left and right came together, the government came together and draconian gun laws were brought in.
7:36 am
complete ban on handguns, assault weapons. they were removed from the streets. since then there's been two mass shootings. that's it in 16 17 years. and britain has on average between 30 and 45 gun murders a year ever since. americans same period every year, 11,000 12,000 people are murdered. 18,000 take their lives with guns and 100,000 americans are hit by gunfire every year. this is like the wild west and i just don't believe that the majority of decent civilized americans do not share my view that something has to give. >> good to have you here. >> it's good to be here. thank you. as president obama reveals his cabinet, some people are asking where's his diversity. it shows the president surrounded by white men. we ask elaine chao if she thinks

7:42 am
secretary. good morning. >> good morning. >> is it deserved? >> with americans so deserved with 42% of our population being of color i think for this president, it is especially -- it's especially noteworthy. you know it was 1933 when the first female was appointed to the u.s. cabinet and that was frances perkins. in fact, for eight years when i was secretary of labor i worked in the building that bore her name and it was 15 years before another female secretary of labor was appointed when andrea mclawful lynn was appointed in 1987. carla hills was the hud secretary in 1975. so it's been a long journey, and i think given today's environment, given that, again, 42% of our population is diverse, we should have a cabinet that looks like america. >> so every administration doesn't have enough diversity in
7:43 am
it. >> i'm kind of quite surprised at that because with this president with his particular history and given all the campaign rhetoric about diversity and the female voter. >> let me bring up what the president's spokesperson said, jay carney. he said the president is choosing the best candidate available for the job. >> i'm shocked at that statement. you know that's kind of a statement that was an excuse that was commonly used 20 25 years ago. we're not talking about special treatment. we're talking about going out and finding the most qualified people where over 50% of the population are women, and we have tens of millions of americans who are people of color. >> so your message to the president is? >> i think he can do better. with every administration. regardless of which administration it is. we hope that we have a more diverse cabinet, that again, reflects america. our population is now 17%
7:44 am
latino/hispanic merges, 14% african-americans, 15% asian-americans, 5% native americans. >> thank you. >> again, we're talking about merit and we're talking about finding the best people possible with a diverse background. >> all right. secretary chao thanks so much for joining us this morning. it's 7:45 now. time now for your local weather.

8:05 am
you, this parody of a signature. it belongs to white house chief of staff jack lew, president obama's nominee as secretary of the treasury. the agency responsible for printing america's green backs which would carry lieu's signature already -- lew's signature. >> can you describe this row of warped curly cues a a signature. handwriting expert does not. >> it's a scribble. they put a lot of barriers to transparency. they don't want people to know who they are. >> reporter: washington knows who lew is. budget director under president's clinton and obama and the calmest, most organized of president obama's three chief of staff. lew is in line to replace tim geithner geithner. geithner had this clumsy indecipherable stroke to this legibly squeezed substitute.
8:06 am
previous secretaries penned readable signatures. geithner told them last spring india is to blame. >> i took handwriting in third grade in new delhi, india. i probably did not get the best signature. >> no one knows if lew wants to take his signature to rewrite. it's hard to know where to begin. >> jack lew has a symbolic squiggly signature. if he cares about his legacy if he cares that people can read his handwriting, he'll adjust his handwriting and be more transparent. >> the white house won't say whether or not lew will work on his penmanship. they say it's easy to forge. not a comforting thought when you think about a treasury secretary. if you're thinking, well, my signature has issues of its own. nobody has asked me to be treasury secretary and definitely never will. >> thank you, major. what's interesting about this is why does he sign his name that

auto companies say in the auto companies say in the future we will not be driving our cars the computers will. huh? we'll take you along in a ride in a cutting edge driverless car designed to make our roads, they say safer, by reducing human error. first dr. holly phillips has new information about the effects coffee and soda can have on your mood. good morning. today in "healthwatch", drinks and depression. a new study finds drinking sweetened beverages may increase your risk of depression while drinking coffee may lower it. researchers looked at more than 260,000 people and evaluated their consumption of soda tea, fruit punch, an coffee for a
8:13 am
year. ten years later they asked the participants if they had been diagnosed with depression during that time. people who drank more than 4 cans of soda a day were 30% more likely to develop depression than those who didn't drink any, and the risk was even higher for diet soda. on the flip side, people who drank four cups of coffee a day were 10% less likely to develop depression than non-coffee drinkers. the study didn't establish why the beverages have this effect but it's not the first of its kind to find these links. while cutting down on sweetened drinks may naturally lower depression and improve your overall health it's too soon to prescribe coffee as an anti-depressant. too much caffeine may lead to sleep disorders. when it comes to our mood we are what we drink. i'm dr. holly phillips. >> announcer: "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by campbell's healthy

8:18 am
ride. >> reporter: the audi tts racing around a california track has a powerful engine under the hood and nobody at all behind the wheel. it's not operated by remote control, it really is driving itself. chris gerdes and his stanford university engineering team equipped the car they call shelly with a powerful computer a precise gps system and a big red button that tells the car to take us for a ride. >> whoa, off we go. >> off we go. there's a pit road speed limit we all observe. >> okay. >> as soon as we're out here on the track, we're free to run. >> whoa. making this clear, your hands are free from the wheel. >> my hands are free from the whooel in case anything goes wrong. >> reporter: on a track still damp from a rainstorm, shelly drove as fast as she could slowing just enough to make it around the hair pin turns. >> the speedometer says 70 miles an hour.
8:19 am
i realize i'm putting my life in the hands of technology that doesn't have hands. and my stomach, don't ask. >> reporter: without humans inside the car, gerdes and his team have let it run wild reaching 130 miles an hour on utah's salt flats. it raced up the steep switch backs of pike's peak all by itself. >> so you studied how race car drivers would do this and taught the car to do that. >> it's a very big part of this project is understanding how the very best drivers control the car. >> by monitoring brain activity gerdes and his team get inside the mind of race car driver and track owner david bodden. >> we operate a a deep level. >> get the front wheels to bite. go go. >> gerdes is trying to build boddes's deep reflexes into the

8:21 am
there would be very substantial savings for the consumer. >> with less than 33,000 fatalities in 2011 traffic-related deaths have declined to their lowest point since 1949 but today over 90% of auto accidents are caused by driver error. so the sooner we get driver's hands off the wheel, the safer our roads are likely to be. >> some of the manufacturers are talking about cars in the 2015 time frame that will drive for themselves if you're stuck in a traffic jam on a freeway. so i think we're seeing the first instances of this technology not too many years away. >> jieksyikes! wow. >> reporter: still, take it from me, it takes a leap of faith to leave the driving up to the car. john blackstone willows, california. >> you cannot stop the future. i love the idea of automatic pilot, putting your car on automatic pilot so if you want to go to sleep you can take

little movie that could. nobody had idea idea what the heck the movie was about and immediately after they said you've about got to see this movie. it's been rolling since then but i think it's exceeded my hopes for that film which i love. he's nominated for best a best actress who had never acted before. >> no kathryn bigelow. >> no kathryn bigelow, no ben affleck, that's really a huge pair of surprises. and tom hooper not as surprising but also very, very disappointed. >> he was just nominated for the director's gild. >> he had a rough road. golden globe he was out. this is a very surprising list. >> why do you suppose that is both beg low and ben affleck were not nominated. >> i think that the controversy surrounding "zero dark thirty" has been really damaging the notion that this is a film that's easy on terrorism is not something that's going to go

down well with the membership of the academy. this is a pretty liberal group. this is a group that was not very pro george w. bush but i think also the film is long and slightly odd and it's offbeat, so people may just not have loved it. >> lincoln got the most nominations? >> yeah. "lincoln" came in with 12 which is not surprising. >> and that makes steven spielberg best movie and best picture. odds-on favorite or not? >> i would say so. life of pi has really nobody to be nominated for acting. so sally field, tommy lee jones, daniel day-lewis, those are three nominations for -- >> who it be the favorite for best actress? best actor is jessica chastain. >> i think it's still a tossup between jessica lawrence and jessica chastain. only five nominations and a
8:48 am
stronger showing by silver likes with eight could really tip this toward jennifer lawrence. >> and once again it shows that best picture and best director don't always go hand in hand because best picture argo was nominated. best director was not. does that surprise you? >> no because best picture, we've got between 5 and 10 slots, right, so they've given us nine nominees but really you're not going to have the best picture. so all the directors have been nominated. >> are you surprised by django? >> aim surprised. no i'm not surprised by django in there. >> best director. >> he's not in for best director. >> who is the likely favorite for best supporting actress? >> it's probably an hathaway. >> and best supporting actor? >> best supporter actor, tommy lee jones is sort of the favorite, you know lincoln become ahead in the count of nominations. he's certainly going to have a lot of momentum.
8:49 am
i think there's some feeling that maybe robert de niro. >> i was going to say competing with robert de niro. >> yeah. he hasn't been nominated in 20 years or so. >> is there a theme heresome? >> i think the theme is really some of these controversies really beat up movies. >> you know what i love is an 85-year-old and 9-year-old got nominated for best actor. >> how great is that? i hope people go out and see these movies. that's a great lift. right back.

i watched all those nominations, having seen most of those movies, it's really a wide and diverse group of movies and stars saying a lot about the quality of motion pictures today. >> it wasn't predictable.
