there is a gnarly tree in morocco that is the source of some of the finest oil in all the world. argan oil is used in salad and as a dipping sauce but also is a moisturizer for your hair and skin, and some insist even cures disease. argan oil is liquid gold for the people who make it, selling $300 a liter. but how it gets from the tree to your kitchen table is another story. here is jonathan vigliotti. >> reporter: the sounds of morocco come in many forms, from the music at the bustling markets to the cars that
2:41 am
the streets. but 80 miles west of marrakesh for the countryside, there is tranquillity and the enchanting argan forest. these sun-kissed trees were once at risk of being wiped out for lumber, and today they are a lifeline. and the pioneers have hooves. the goats of morocco have an extraordinary skill. with the finesse of a tight-rope walker, they scale up the branches. it's a darwinian tenant that goats developed to reach what was hanging on the other end of the stick, the argan fruit, which contains the oil known for its anti-aging properties, popping up in food to o
2:42 am
but nowhere will you find the story of how this oil was born. >> so goats and trees, like a moroccan mirage. >> yeah, the first time i saw these goats climbing the tree i thought i was hallucinating. >> reporter: along the streets it's normal to see hundreds of goats in the trees. as we are shown, there is where this new york-based argan oil brand takes root. >> they're basically eating the fruit and digesting it. and they either spit it out or poop it out. >> you heard that right, centuries ago locals discovered the goats' digestive tract helped with the process. but the only thing, the nuts needed to be collected by hand.
2:43 am
and then you know, just getting ready to do it. >> reporter: and we did, collecting dozens of nuts that went in one end and came out the other. >> so this is how it starts. >> that is how it starts in the tree. >> and comes out like this? >> comes out like this. so guys, welcome. >> reporter: the cooperative is one in a number of argan oil production site s run by berber women, you wouldn't find fancy machines here. every ounce of oil is pressed by hand. it's an old recipe, the nut is cracked, the seeds extracted. they are then ground into a thick paste using the traditional stone wheel. water is added and tediously mixed and finally filtered into this g
2:44 am
>> just how much time goes into it? >> well, i mean, it takes about 40 hours of labor work, to make one liter of argan oil. >> for one liter. >> after the goats have done their work. >> reporter: one argan tree can only produce one liter of oil a year, that is why it earned the name liquid gold. so what does it taste like? >> it's made with the help of goats. >> we dip the bread, it tastes like nuts. >> it tastes like peanut. >> don't taste any trace of goat. >> today, because of demand fuelled by celebrity users like angelina jolie and giselle bundchen, one liter is up to $300, some of the most expensive oil in the world.
2:45 am
women went from housewives to wealthier women with a steady income. that makes ahmed a hero for the ideas he brings. kadisha has been making the oil since he was a child. >> she said before life was very hard, almost no income. >> reporter: but thanks to argan oil, she bought a house and traveled and even paid for a brand-new set of teeth. and there is plenty of wealth being spread around, all across town you will see sees advertising businesses, along with bus-loads of tourists who pour in to buy the oil. but that means the goats are now struggling to keep up with the
2:46 am
demand. after all they can only process so much fruit. as a result, most local companies have started to phase out the goats and even replaced some berber women's traditional roles with machines which can produce four liters a day compared to two when they're done by hand. some people seem to start with business for money, some for passion. >> i appreciate the culture, and what it is doing. >> what point do you sell out? >> i don't think i would sell out at any point. when you see a bottle of oil, you see a lot of work of women, good quality oil. it has a story behind it. >> reporter: a story that begins in these moroccan tree tops. and ends in shops like ahmed and gabriel's in new york city. they could be the last few drops of an ancient moroccan tradition. unable to keep up with modern

3:14 am
everything we can to be able to do that and have it stick. >> and sir, can you be more specific? are you going to do something through the atf or will it be an executive action? >> well, there is a debate as to whether or not there is an authority and executive action. i think we have the authority. and there is a concern that if in fact we go ahead and do it what the response will be from the united states congress in a way that may be able to override a veto. but i'm not prepared to give you more detail at this moment except to say you are right about the total non-utility from a sporting perspective of armor-piercing bullets and we are focusing on it. >> is it worth a try even if you face a veto? >> i've learned that i have a v in front of my name.

3:24 am
his criticism, but this is what he told congress. >> what is your definition of extremely careless, if you could go through that? >> i intended it as a common sense term kind of you know it when you see it terms. somebody who should know better. someone who has demonstrated using a lack of care that strikes me as, there are ordinary accidents and then there is just real sloppiness, so i think of that as real sloppiness. >> comey added that if a federal employee was that sloppy with secret documents they would likely be punished or fired. >> and to the voters who wonder if you can be trusted with the nation's secrets, you say what? >> i say that i have proven that over the course of my eight years in the senate, my four years as secretary of state. i take classified materials seriously and this investigation has proven that i had no intent to do anything wrong.

fellow officers. dallas police officials continue to face questions over how they ended the standoff with the gunman. they sent a robot carrying a bomb and blew him up. critics say such military hardware has no role on the streets of america. kris van cleave reports from the streets of rockville, maryland. >> reporter: the bomb squad makers say that these robots can pretty much do anything. they have cameras so that they can communicate and work to investigate suspicious packages, but some police departments have used them to deliver tear gas to stop a suspect. but for a police department to use a robot to kill, that was unprecedented. hours after micah johnson opened fire in downtown dallas he was cornered by police and told negotiators there were bombs around the city and he threatened to kill more officers. the dallas mayor says there were no other options than to send in a robot strapped with ro

but 80 miles west of marrakesh in the countryside, there is tranquillity and the enchanting argan forest. these sun-kissed trees were once at risk of being wiped out for lumber, and today they are a lifeline. and the pioneers have hooves. the goats of morocco have an extraordinary skill. with the finesse of a tight-rope walker, they scale up the precarious branches. >> it's terrifying that they can get that high without falling. >> it's a darwinian tenant that goats developed to reach what was hanging on the other end of the stick, the argaui

40 hours of labor work, to make one liter of argan oil. >> for one liter. >> after the goats have done their work. >> reporter: one argan tree can only produce one liter of oil a year, that is why it earned the name liquid gold. so what does it taste like? >> it's made with the help of goats. >> we dip the bread, it tastes like nuts. >> it tastes like peanut. >> don't taste any trace of goat. >> today, because of demand fuelled by celebrity users like angelina jolie and giselle bundchen, one liter is up to $300, some of the most expensive oil in the world. practically overnight berber

the oil. but that means the goats are now struggling to keep up with the demand. after all they can only process so much fruit. as a result, most local companies have started to phase out the goats and even replaced some berber women's traditional roles with machines which can produce 40 liters per day compared to two liters when done by hand. some people start businesses to make money, it seems like you started it because of a passion. >> i appreciate the culture, and what it is doing. >> what point do you sell out? >> i don't think i would sell out at any point. when you see a bottle of oil, you see a lot of work of women, good quality oil. it has a story behind it. >> reporter: a story that begins in these moroccan tree tops. and ends in shops like ahmed and gabriel's in new york city. they could be the last few drops of an ancient moroccan tradition. unable to keep up with modern demands.
