"Robert Gates served under 8 U.S. presidents ran the CIA and oversaw the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for president's Bush and Obama. Given the rising tensions with China, and the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, we thought it worth hearing what he thinks about how President Biden is doing. It's time for American troops to come home. And the biggest challenges facing the United States. It's an American story. Cattle ranchers in Wyoming, who every spring pushed thousands of cows along the same 70 mile route their ancestors pioneered 125 years ago. The green river drift is the country's longest running cattle drive, and as we saw, it's filled with sensational sunrises. Hard dusty days, all of it worked on horseback.

I'm Bill Whitaker. I'm Anderson Cooper. I'm Sharon alphonse. I'm John wirth I'm. I'm Scott pelley. Those stories and more tonight on 60 minutes. Few people know more about the depth and complexity of America's national security in Robert Gates, who spent nearly three decades at the CIA and National Security Council before running The Pentagon under presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Given the end of the war in Afghanistan, tensions with China and deep divisions in this country, we thought it would be worth hearing from the only Secretary of Defense to serve under presidents from different parties. Gates is 78 and lives in Washington state where he says he moved to get as far away from Washington, D.C. as possible. He told us watching the chaos of the American withdrawal from Afghanistan on television made him feel sick. It was really tough. For a few days there, I actually wasn't feeling very well. And I realized it was because of what was happening in Kabul, and I was just so low about the way it had ended, if you will. And I guess the other feeling that I had was that it probably did not need to have turned out that way. Prison Biden said any withdrawal is messy. Certainly the military considers the withdrawal the most dangerous part of an operation. But they really had a lot of time to plan. Beginning with the deal that president Trump cut with the Taliban. So that was in February. Of 2020. Robert Gates who oversaw the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2006 to 2011, told us president Trump failed to plan properly for the evacuation of Afghans who'd helped the U.S. fight the Taliban. And Gates also believes President Biden didn't act quickly enough after announcing in April he was pushing back president Trump's deadline for the U.S. withdrawal by four months. It's time for American troops to come home. Once President Biden reaffirmed that there was going to be a firm deadline date. That's the point at which I think they should have begun bringing these people out. You'd have to be pretty naive not to assume things were going to go downhill. Once that withdrawal was complete. So the former president and President Biden, both share some responsibility in this. Absolutely. As for the collapse of the Afghan government and security forces, Gates believes he and others before him made critical mistakes and helped the U.S. built and trained the Afghan military. I bear some responsibility for this. It had started before I got there. But I think that we created an Afghan military in our own image. And one that required a lot more sophisticated logistics and maintenance and support than say the Taliban. The Taliban didn't have years of training from foreign advisers. They didn't know how to read. We were teaching Afghan troops how to read before anything else. Well, they needed to know how to read in order to operate the equipment we were giving them instead of being light and tactical and basically self resourced as the Taliban were. We created a logistics heavy sophisticated equipment heavy military. And when you pulled that rug out from under them and you add on top of that, the corruption of the senior military leaders and so on. It's not a surprise to me that the Afghan army collapsed. We all maintain the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan. President Biden has given assurances that the U.S. can still target terrorists in Afghanistan. We have what's called over the horizon capabilities. Which means we can strike terrorists and targets without American boots on the ground or very few if needed. But Robert Gates is skeptical. The military reversed to it is over the over the rainbow 'cause it's a fantasy. This notion that you can carry out effective counter terrorism in Afghanistan from a great distance. It's not a fantasy, but it's just very, very hard. As evidenced by the botched drone strike in Kabul in the final days of the withdrawal. The U.S. Military claimed they'd killed an ISIS terrorist and turned out to be an Afghan aid worker and 7 children. If you don't have the kind of sources on the ground to have kind of real-time intelligence that allows you to target people, it's very complicated. If they can't get that right a few blocks from the Kabul airport, are you going to get something right over the horizon? Exactly. When he was Secretary of Defense, Gates would write personal condolence letters to the families of fallen service members. We wondered what he would say to them now and to all who fought in Afghanistan. I would say that you accomplished your mission. There has not been a terrorist attack a successful foreign based terrorist attack on the United States since we went in to Afghanistan in 2001. What happens now that we're gone remains to be seen? Before becoming Secretary of Defense, Gates spent nearly 27 years at the National Security Council and the CIA, which he ran under president George H. W. Bush, Gates and President Biden have crossed paths for decades as he wrote about in 2014. You wrote Joe Biden was a man of integrity. Still, I think he's been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades. I think he's gotten a lot wrong. You're talking all through the years as vice president and supposed every one of Ronald Reagan's military programs to contest the Soviet Union. He opposed the first Gulf War that list goes on. Now I will say that in the Obama administration, he and I obviously had significant differences over Afghanistan, but he and I did agree in our opposition to the intervention in Libya. And frankly on issues relating to Russia and China. But you think he made a mistake in Afghanistan in the way he handled the withdrawal? Yes. Do you think he believes he made a mistake?.

"Other members of congress though. We may be uncomfortable. Admitting this disinformation is embedded in our daily life it might seem like a lifetime ago but disinformation featured somewhat prominently in president. Trump's first impeachment part of the investigation involved a russian disinformation campaign pinning the blame for moscow. Two thousand sixteen election interfere ferrets on neighboring ukraine. Ladies and gentlemen. The president elect of the united states. Joseph robinet biden and dr jill biden. President biden didn't use. The word disinformation in his inaugural address. But he sure described it and we must reject the culture in which facts themselves are manipulated and even manufacturing domestically disinformation spreads like an infection through our favorite social media platforms those platforms monitor but also monetize disinformation big difference here. Is that platforms. Because of the way they're set up to feed off of emotion and spew back to you the things that are most likely to engage with as part of their profit model. What would ordinarily in a pre-digital world happened. Just sort of one to your own sort of can self contained thoughts ends up being spread across an incredible network of people and then reinforced by the algorithms of these social media platforms where people are sharing this content. Disinformation has shaped american politics and eroded already shaky faith in national institutions. Most shockingly disinformation fed the violent insurrection at the us capitol where people were beaten and died both because they believed in disinformation and because they were defending the capital from disinformation. Anyone will ever convince me. Joe by got more votes than president trump. When you think about particularly over the last year or so Some of the the claims that the election was stolen that it was rigged that there were deceased foreign zombie dictators attempting to manipulate and float votes throughout swing states. That is an example of disinformation. It is provable. Demonstrably false those propagated. Big lie knew that it was doing so but they advanced that narrative for their own purposes. So textbook case of disinformation describes welcome back chairman. Johnson ranking member peters and members of the committee. Chris cribs was director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure. Security agency and famously. The last person fired by the president via twitter up until the last days of the trump administration cribs monitored federal cybersecurity systems and help states defend against cyberwarfare particularly around election security. Much of that. Work focused on foreign disinformation campaigns. And we all learned a good deal about russian efforts in twenty sixteen two thousand. Sixteen if you look back at the intelligence community assessment that was released in january of two thousand seventeen it showed a three pronged interference campaign from the russian government. The russian intelligence services. The first prong was to attempt to penetrate election machines election voting systems for purposes. That are still immediately unclear But they certainly got into some voter-registration databases. The second prong of the campaign was to push disinformation. In this case to the american people for the purposes of of dividing us the prong was something called a hack and leak operation. The email account of john podesta top advisor to hillary clinton was act damaging emails or released. That's actually another type of information operation. That's mala information.

Rep. Chip Roy: Biden's Language on COVID Response Is Always About Others Than You

They're going to force you to do And by the way, it's all purposeful to say it's to help other people because they don't want to make it about you. Because then it's about freedom for you to make a decision about a mask or about a vaccine for you or your loved one. No, no, they want to make it about. You must do that for the other people.

Makes you feel like you could just poke your chest out with the responsibility that you're taking all kind of makes you feel like what you're needed asked about driverless trucks the feel like they are being run off the road but another issue troubles them even more. I think that companies need to keep safety in mind. You have a glitch in a computer. There's too many things that can go wrong. One of them semis. Hit something small. What car passenger car or anything like that. It's a done deal. I mean i was on seventy five last month Throw and it was bad accident and so a state trooper came out. And he was hand signaling. People you go here. You go their house and autonomous gonna recognize with officers trying to say or do. How's that going to work sympathy. Empathy fear code eye contact. I don't know how you create an algorithm that accounts for all that you can't get the public. Have a right to know if they're testing driverless trucks on the thinks. That's well that's our concern is who's watching this. Who's making sure that they're not throwing something unsafe on the road. I think a lot of it Is being done. With almost no oversight from governance groups from the government itself sam lesch represents six hundred thousand truckers for the teamsters. He's concerned that federal state and local governments have only limited access to the driverless technology. You know a lot of this information. Understandably is proprietary tech companies. Want to keep you know their algorithms and and their safety data secret until they can kind of get it right. The problem is that in the meantime. They're testing this technology on public roads. They're testing the next to you as you drive down. The road in that was consistent with our reporting. You have to tell anyone when you test no not for individual tests to tell them where you test. We do not currently have to tell them where we test in arizona or how. How often you test no. Do you have to share your data with any state department of transportation. Currently were not required to share data. We would be happy to share data. What about inspections is anyone from arizona. Dot come by and check stuff out the dot comes by all the time they we talk with them regularly. It's not a formal inspection process. Yeah we wanted to ask elaine. Chao the secretary of the department of transportation during the trump administration about regulating this emerging sector. She declined an interview but provided us with a statement which reads in part the department needs to prepare for the transportation systems of the future by engaging with new technologies to address safety without hampering innovation to that point. Chuck price emphatic. The driverless trucks poos fewer dangers. We eliminate texting accidents while driving. When there's a computer there are no drunk. Computers in the computer doesn't sleep so those are large causes of accidents. He adds the driverless. Trucks are more fuel-efficient in part because they can stay perfectly aligned in their lane in unlike humans are program never to speed but he admits the profit motive is significant music. A lot of money to be made here. There's certainly a lot of money to be made There's a there's an opportunity to solve a very big problem. Steve is silly. Says the industry may be imperfect but he thinks the solution should not depend on driverless technology alone. What's your response to the technology. Companies say look. I'm trying to do something more efficiently. And i'm going to improve safety. This is america. Enterprise what are you gonna get away with this for i. I'd say that that's wonderful. But that's not your job right. Your jobs to make money right policy is going to decide what our outcomes are going to be. Trucking is a very competitive industry. The low road approach often wins.

"Boston dynamics is a cutting edge. Robotics company that spend decades behind closed doors making robots that move ways. We've only seen in science fiction films. They usually release videos on youtube of their lifelike. Machines spinning somersaulting or sprinting which are greeted with fascination and fear is we. I told you this past spring. We've been trying without any luck to get into boston dynamics workshop for years and in march they finally agreed to let us in. After working out strict cove protocols we went to massachusetts to see how they make robots do the unimaginable from the outside. Boston dynamics headquarters looks pretty normal inside. However it's anything. But if willie wonka made robots his workshop might look something like this. There are robots in corridors offices in kennels trot and dance in rural two hundred or so human robotic who build and often break them barely bat an eye that is atlas the most human looking robot they've ever made. It's nearly five feet tall one hundred and seventy five pounds and his program to run leap in spin like an automated acrobat mark labor. The founder and chairman of boston dynamics doesn't like to play favorites but definitely has a soft spot for atlas. So here's a little bit of john. That's incredible atlas isn't doing all this on. Its own technician. Brian hollingsworth is steering it with this remote control. The robots software allows it to make other key decisions. Autonomously so really. The robot is doing so in balance all its own control. Brian's steering at telling it what speed and direction it's computers are adjusting. How the legs are placed them what forces. It's applying to keep a balance atlas balances with the help of sensors as well as gyroscope and three onboard computers. It was definitely built to be pushed around it a little bit more. Just like you. I you can push it. In any direction. From the side making machines that can stay upright on their own and moved through the world with the ease of an animal or human has been an obsession. Mark roberts for forty years. The space of time you've been working is nothing. Compared to the time it's taken for animals and humans develop some people look at me and say oh roeber you've been stuck on this problem for forty years. Animals are amazingly good and people at at what they do. you know. we're so agile. We're so versatile we really haven't achieved what humans can do yet. But i think i think we can raybird. Isn't making it easy for himself. He's given most of his robots legs. Why focus on on legs. And i would think wheels would be easier. Yeah wheels and tracks are great if you have a prepared. Surface like a road or even a dirt road but people in animals can go anywhere on earth using their lights and so that you know that was the inspiration. Some of the first contraptions he built in the early nineteen eighties bounced around on what looked like pogo sticks. They appeared in this documentary. When roeber was a pioneering professor of robotics and computer science at carnegie mellon he founded. Boston dynamics nine hundred ninety two and was ceo. Robert player has been working for decades to perfect. How robots move they developed. This robot called big dog for the military as well as this larger pack mule that could carry four hundred pounds on. Its back experimenting with speed. They got this cheetah like robot to run nearly thirty miles an hour. None of these made it out of the prototype phase but they did lead to this. It's called spot. Boston dynamics made it not knowing exactly how would be used but the inspiration for it isn't hard to figure out. The spot is a omni directional robot. So i can go. Forwards and backwards. This is crazy since the real benefit of legs legs give you that capability. That's rubber peter. The ceo and hannah rossi technician who works on spy imagining anything special to let it walk over those rocks. The controls are easier to use. The new might. Expect does have to come in strikeout. Perfect about it. Drive it close to wherever you wanna go and the robot will do the rest in some ways. It's like driving a very sophisticated remote control car. What makes it. Different spot is really smart about its own. Locomotion it deals with all the details about how to place my feet. What gate to us. How to manage my body so that all you have to tell it is the direction ago and in some cases. You don't even have to do that. When signaled spot can take itself off. Its charging station and go for a walk on its own. As long as it's preprogramed with the route it uses five three d. cameras to map its surroundings and avoid obstacles like something. Atlas has a similar technology. We were talking in front of atlas. This is how it saw us. This is inside atlases brain and it shows its perceptions system so what looks like a flashlight is really the data. That's coming back from its cameras. And you see the white rectangles that means it's identifying a place that it could step and then once it identifies attach those footsteps to it and it says okay. I'm going to try and step there and then it adjusts its mechanics so that actually hits those places when it's running. All of that happens in a matter of milliseconds and so it's gonna use that vision.

Go up and try to defeat the invading russians. In other words the wolverines had to take things into their own hands because there was nobody to the invading force.

"For people on the autism spectrum subject. Did you most enjoy in school. They're creating computer. Simulated job interviews. Straight ahead specially designed driving challenges and a block design test to help accompany assess potential employees visual problem solving abilities. So people have done research on this for mightily. Kunda is a computer scientist at the frist center. So this is a wearable tracker right here and here are little tiny cameras. And they're actually facing inward and they're recording. Your is the infrared cameras detect where your pupils are pointing. You can start as soon as i turn the page so dan berger a data scientist at the center who's on the autism spectrum volunteer to take the block design test to compare his visual problem solving abilities with mine. Great for ten minutes. He assembled a series of increasingly complex block patterns and go yes next. It was my turn. Dan made it look easy for me. It wasn't this point. My head is hurting. Should it be hurting. I completed the puzzles. But dan did them faster and was more efficient. How can you tell look at the square on the right of your screen. Dan methodically placed the blocks left to right line by line and amazingly. He usually only had to look at the sample pattern once before placing a block. Why not. i wasn't organized at all. I place blocks randomly and had to look back and forth thirteen times at the sample pattern before figuring out how to place the last block mind is a sieve. Essentially like i'm not holding onto any of that information so i'm constantly having refer back to the original is dan he memorize it. Yes very interested in a completely different way processing information or trying to solve problems. Yes yeah it is. Mightily kunda hopes employers might use test like this to more accurately assess capabilities of people on the autism spectrum. Imagine like tsa baggage screening something super visual or when you're expecting batteries. I'm coming off the line for quality control. I'm there's there's lots of different jobs that this is relevant for the motto. We put things like then. Burgers unique abilities caught the attention of cave on stanton astrophysics professor at vanderbilt. His son is on. The autism spectrum helped start the frist center. What did you want then here. The center i brought him on board with my astrophysics research group originally because we were dealing with these massive amounts of data from space telescopes. And i needed help from someone who had dan's unique talents to help us look for patterns and data. So what are the skills that you have is is looking at large amounts of information. I think i think differently from other people. This is a picture of the seven sisters. Dench challenge was to make sense of data from nasr's keppler telescope his solution. He built an interactive software program called filter graph using dan software tool we were just able to slice and dice. The data spin it around in different ways until something visually popped. The top was a breakthrough in astrophysics ends. Filter graph produced a new way of judging the size and age of stars. Based on. How vigorously they flicker in the night sky. Dan may be too modest. Tell you but he is. The inventor of record of this platform and nasa has licensed it. Nasa is using photograph that you invented the brilliance. That dan that you have that's going to become increasingly important. There's only going to be more and more data coming down the road and if like people who can understand the data that's going to be more important. There's a lot of people who are unemployed. Who are on the spectrum. Do you have any advice for them. Oh gosh i feel like there are a lot of strength to Being on the spectrum. And i think imagination if trade. So that's the kind of opportunity that we found about thirty large companies actively seeking employees on the autism spectrum including microsoft j. p. morgan ford but there are still so many people with autism who are unemployed and the numbers are growing in the next decade at drexel university estimate as many as one point one million americans with autism we'll turn eighteen back and autonomy works outside chicago. Brian sarah brennan. Philip and eric told us they hope more companies will start to recognize the untapped potential of people on the spectrum. What is having a job mean to you for me. Having a job is important because it provides me with much needed structure in my life. Having the job is important to me. Because otherwise i would become very financially depend on my parents asking them. Can you buy me this k- by me that it's just been nice to be able to go home and talk to my parents about what i did during the day. They must be very proud of it. Yes they always say. They're not surprised. So now holly williams on aside for sixty minutes tonight we have a story of solidarity hope and ultimately survival in the face of adversity. It took place more than fifty years ago but when it was rediscovered loss g it caused a sensation as we. I told you earlier this year. It's a tale of a group of school boys stranded on a remote and deserted island for more than fifteen months. It might remind you of the famous novel. Lord of the flies by william golding. But as you'll see the outcome of this real life story could not have been more different. The story begins in nineteen sixty five mono tau and five of his friends was studying to boarding school in tana. An island nation in the pacific ocean board rebellious and yearning for adventure. They stole a traditional whaling boat and with reckless abandon. They set off fiji. Did it have an engine. No no engine. But mono isn't fiji about five hundred miles from tong little bit less. Did you have a map or compass. No teenagers might have been brought up on the sea but they soon figured out. They'd made a terrible mistake on the first night of violence storm ripped the sales from the mosques and tore off the boats rutta for a week. There crippled boat drifted aimlessly seventeen year. Old a fatal. The oldest of the group told us they were convinced they die. No food no water. We was Says tracing around by the wind and after eight days we saw the island it was a volcanic island jutting out from the sea the boat needed a wave sent it crashing into the rocky leaving it in pieces. The exhausted teenagers struggle the shore. The only thing we do grabbing each to get it see a prayer. Then you go to school boys later discovered. They drifted a hundred miles from where they'd set off and had landed on the island of utter on maps. Nothing more than an uninhabited.

How far that reaches this is like a cultural phenomenon. I just i. I'm i'm you're making me feel incredibly british by not being able to even look in the eye during a compliment or any kind of recognition of success. Gordon grew up our outside of london. The only son of working class parents. His mother was a social worker and his father. A musician and bible salesman. Corden was scarcely interested in academics drama. Class being the exception being drama and a c in home economics. Which i think is clear to you. Those are the if you look at me now. Those really things primary interesting which was performing and eighteen. You talk about Often about the struggle. You have had with eating with your weight.

Confidence comes from. It was all a defense mechanism of like well. I'll be the biggest target in the room. Buddies don't like that but he's confidence is like kryptonite to belise. James corden's confidence was equal to his ambition at seventeen he found his calling and his voice albeit with just one line in a musical in london's west end he was a working actor for much of his twenties but big lead roles were elusive so he decided to write the part for himself. Co creating and starring in one of the. Uk's most popular tv comedies gavin and stacey. it won him awards and made him famous in the uk. At thirty four coordin- married julia carey. They're now raising three children in los angeles because hollywood came calling after his performance on broadway in the slapstick one man to governors.

And i guess this is a test without the movie features corden alongside andrew reynolds and oscar winners nicole kidman and the marvelous meryl streep. We spoke with her remotely. So what did you think. When you found out james corden was going to be a co star in film. Well i was. I was thrilled. I think he's one of the most pressure naturally. Talented actors writers improvisers musicians. He's he's a quadruple quintupled threat. So it's fund work with him fun to be with him. How it that he gets such a wide array of people including people like you to go along with some of the crazy stuffy does show well he. You know you're in safe hands. I think i he's not going to push you over cliff. It's like great great directors You feel safe with them. And i think james you trust. He's he's got this in hand. Yeah at forty two. It's a good.
