so much effort that was undertaken to find and kill jihad john had been undertaken to find and rescue her son and the other hostages who were subsequently murdered by isis in a very high profile way over the past 14 or 15 months or so, that would have been something she said was very small solace to learn th jihad john had been killed in an air strike. and she said, you know, the government just doesn't get it. it doesn't bring them their son back. that was their point. and they are -- i don't think they're going to miss jihad jojo, but i think they would have preferred to get jim back alive. >> and that's so understandable. one mother's grief and several other families who likely very much feel the same way. james meek, part of our brian ross investigative unit. james, thank you so much for your time this morning.. and that major strike on a member of isis coming just hours after isis claimed carried out deadly attacks in lebanon. at least 43 people were killed in twin suicide bombings in

3:26 am
friday, november 13th. from abc news, thiss is "world news now." >> good morning, everyone on this friday, the 13th. >> are you feeling more zen? >> i do feel more zen. i walked away with life from this woman. of all the interviews i've done, she's top tleempt transformed the way i think about life this woman. you're a big worko junkie. you would have had a tough time -- >> keeping up with the 93-year-old yoga instructor. >> yes. breaking overnight, the notorious terrorist known as jihadi john. he's believed to have been killed by a drone strike in syria. >> the kuwaiti-born killer seen in so many gruesome beheading videos had been tracked by the u.s. for months. abc's chief investigating corrrrpondent, brian ross, has been following the story and has the latest now for us. >> reporter: the world first came to know jihadi john a little over a year ago when he appeared in this video wearing a

3:28 am
gravelly voice, emwazi became men. in a statement to abc news, the parents of mururred raj james foley said the streak against jihadi john -- air strike against jihadi john was of small soes as "it's unfortunate that the government doesn't get. it they think it gives us solace but it doesn't. brian red cross, abc news, new york. >> interesting to hear the comment. it is so heart wrenching for these families of the hostages. while it is a huge get for the u.s. government, they've put resosoces, wanted to get this man, because it also sends a message to other militants across the leaf that you are going to do this. justice will be brought at some point. for these families, they're not getting their loved ones back. it has in many ways transformed how the white house has looked at the hostage policy situation. >> it does give them a little
3:29 am
bit of closure, but it definitely does not change the war on isis. there will be other high-value targets, i'm sure, as well. speaking of isis, it may have expanded its terror operations into lebanon with the deadly attack. the group has claimed responsibility for twin suicide bombings in beirut that killed at least 43 people, one of the years. until now, isis has not had a recognized affiliate in lebanon, but its forces are fighting in neighboring syria and iraq. many say a spillover is not surprising. an ohio man is under arrest for the alarming way that he tried to help isis. he used social media to promote violence against members of the u.s. armed forces. the 25-year-old akron man kept opening new twitter, facebook, and tumblr accounts as soon as he opened them and had names and addresses of service personnel.

3:31 am
about the dangers of looking backwards. the notion that we're going to departr11 million, 12 million people from the cououry, first of all, i have no idea where mr. trump thinks the money's going come from. it would cost us hundreds of billions o dollars to execute that. imagine the images on the screen flashed around the world as we were dragging parents away from their children. and putting them in detention centers and systetetically sending them out -- nobody thinks that that is realistic, but more importantly, that's not who we are as americans. >> much more on what the president had to say to george tern "good morning america." and the entire interview sunday on "this week." three more planes in the dallas area have been hit by laser strikes. the faa says pilots from the southwest jet, a cessna, and a corporate jet all reported that they had the powerful lights shone in their cockpits. this comes one day after more

is flooding likely. the s song winds could a ao be a problem for travel, both airline and highway. and they may cause some power outages. today of course is friday the 13th. a day most consider very unlucky. it turns out that it can actually be very lucky for some lottery players. >> in at least five years alone, mega millions players in michigan have won morthan $95 million on friday the 13th drawings. andith aackpot of $200 million for tonight's drawing, this particular friday the 13th could be the most profitable yet for some lucky winners. what does this mean? doe have to fly to michigan? gets someone in michigan to buy the ticket? >> michigan is a lucky state, but we can play the multimillion-dollar lotto anywhere and see if we have luck on this friday the 13th. coming up, black friday is just two weeks away. so what's the world's largest retailer doing to make things a little easier on shoppers this year? also ahead, we have my
