7:12 am
the line. but i think we've got to fix the problem. that's the real focus here. >> and -- >> after we get the facts -- i mean we know things went wrong. >> some people died. >> that's exactly right. why did this happen how was it allowed to happen? who's accountable? somebody's got to be accountable here, like in any institution. >> we'll have more from secretary hagel in our next hour. he talks about the military sexual assault epidemic and how to change the culture to protect women. >> today president obama is expected to nominate san antonio mayor julio castro as secretary of housing and urban development. the rising political star delivered the key note address at the 2012 democratic convention. >> a bill to limit the government's spying of americans is headed to the senate. the house overwhelmingly passed the usa freedom act
