Episode Summary

EDIT
November 18, 2007 Flawed Forensics; Teen Terrorists; Counting Calories
AIRED:
November 18, 2007 Flawed Forensics; Teen Terrorists; Counting Calories In our first story, a travesty of justice being reported by 60 Minutes and The Washington Post about flawed forensics and inaccurate testimony putting defendants in prison. Steve Kroft reports with producer Ira Rosen and The Washington Post’s John Solomon about unfair trials, skewed statistics and testimony that has been found to be unreliable. So why isn’t the government informing these people and letting them file for the retrials they may be entitled to? Also tonight, amazing footage of how an extremist Islamic terrorist followed his father’s lead to Osama Bin Laden’s training camps while still a teen. Now one of the youngest prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, he is charged with killing a U.S. Soldier. Bob Simon interviews his family in Canada and includes film of his father in Afghanistan just weeks before 9/11. Finally, you might never again order ‘fries with that’ once you find out how many calories you’re really getting in those fast food meals. In fact, most restaurants, not just the fast food industry, are fighting the call for calories to be listed on menus. Lesley Stahl reports about what they might be hiding and how much more we’re eating than we think we are.moreless
