4:06 am
operation, after they managed to storm the base. now, this base is camp bastian, one of the biggest in the country. it's where prince harry is deployed. but british officials tell us he was far away when this attack happened. this raises questions on how insurgents were anal to breach the security perimeter. and in an ominous warning, the taliban are vowing that revenge attacks like this one are on the way. >> thank you, mohammed. these metastasizing protests have thrown the obama administration into crisis mode. and they're mourning the dead. president obama and a shaken hillary clinton, welcoming home the bodies of the four americans, killed in the attack on the consulate in libya. ♪ >> four americans, four patriots, they loved this country. and they chose to serve it and served it well.

4:10 am
bringing in the resources, one after another. >> reporter: overnight, the fire was contained. but this morning, there are fears that when the sun's back up, the record temps, plus dry conditions, will flare that fire again. so far, the cause of the fire is unknown. but investigators are determined to find an answer. >> we'll canvas the area. we'll talk to people. we'll look for cameras and see if we can determine a cause. >> so, heat doesn't cause fires. but it does add all of the fuel that dries it out and makes it really bad for the firefighters, as well. look how hot it's going to be. record temperatures again in southern california. upper 90s and low 100s. and the fire danger spreads to the north. the northern mountains and the northern plains. i'll have more of the nation's weather. but for now, back to dan and bianna. a bunch of news overnight. for that, we go to ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. hundreds of people in indiana have been forced from their homes from a fire at a factory.

4:12 am
overpass, trying to avoid the police. that clearly didn't work. the man, however, suffered, only minor injuries. and it was a different type of pursuit on a racetrack outside of chicago, illinois. a dog got loose during a practice for a nascar event at the chicagoland speedway. the puppy ran across the track and to the infield before security finally caught up with him in a garage. he was under arrest for trespassing and is now being held in a pound. just kidding. the dog is okay. >> disclaimer at the end of every ron claiborne newscast. >> that goes without saying. the dog is okay. the puppy is free on bail. >> all right, ron. thank you. >> thanks, ron. we turn, now, to the drama on three, major college campuses. tens of thousands of students across the country, forced to flee their dorms and classrooms, told that bomb threats had been called in. investigators are looking to see if the threats are linked. and abc's john muller has the latest details.
4:13 am

4:14 am
campus. there's bomb threats. >> reporter: in the end, they all were hoaxes. but were they related to each other or the troubles in the middle east? >> it is scary that it is this close to 9/11. and we're not the only school that they're saying had a threat like this. >> reporter: investigators will collect all the facts of each specific bomb threat first. then, they will compare them all with details of the others to see if there's any possible connection. and the possibility that it could be a coincidence. guys? >> a lot to look into. thank you, john muller. for the first time, we're getting a jarring inside look at a shooting rampage at a shooting in new jersey. you're about to hear the 911 calls from frantic employees, scrambling to get away from a crazed gunman, a former co-worker. here's abc's rob nelson. >> reporter: these are the panicked, terrified whispers by those trapped by the gunman's rampage. >> please. please. >> reporter: in these newly-released 911 tapes, you
4:15 am
can almost feel the fear, as exmarine played gunfire in new jersey, in the early morning hours of august 31st. tyler killed two store employees and left others scrambling for their lives and breathlessly pleading for help. >> old bridge. pathmark. they're blowing the place apart. >> reporter: the store was closed to the public at the time. but the gunfire forced frightened overnight employees into storage areas, back rooms and out into the parking lot. >> we're all scattered all over the commuter parking. everybody ran out of the exit. >> reporter: after reportedly firing as many as 20 shots, tyler eventually turned the gun on himself. family members say the 23-year-old had been discharged from the marines after battling depression. and that he was still grieving his mother's death. the 911 calls also shed light on his mood earlier that night. >> he seemed very angry tonight. he didn't say anything to me. he walked right past me.
4:16 am
>> reporter: the call captured the fear of those forced to run and hide. >> he can find me. he can find me. >> reporter: tyler's two victims were 18-year-old, a recent high school graduate. and 24-year-old brian green. each died of a single gunshot. back in 2009, in a tweet, tyler wrote, quote, is it normal to want to kill all of your co-workers. maybe, but i'm actually in a position where i can. chilling stuff here. dan and bianna? >> happens way too much in this country. rob, thank you very much. now, to a wild cross-country bank robbery spree. this man telling people he only has four months to live. and he's finishing out his days by robbing banks. he hit banks in nine states as he travels the country. and is being called the bucket list bandit. but now, there's a new twist to the story. and ron is back with those details. >> the fbi says the bucket list bandit is the busted bucket list former bandit. he pulled off the bank jobs
4:17 am
spanning thousands of miles. after a routine traffic stop. when michael brewster was pulled over for running a stop sign on the border of arkansas and oklahoma, little did police know that this 54-year-old florida man was suspected by the fbi of being the bucket list bandit. investigators say he earned the nickname, after three months of robbing banks, telling bank tellers he had a gun and four months to live. >> was this guy really terminally ill? or was he just trying to be a mastermind? >> reporter: according to investigators, brewster never said just what he was supposedly dying of or why he needed the money. but his former landlord tells abc news, that brewster was evicted from his pensacola apartment on june 14th. seven days later, the fbi says he showed up in this stolen suv in arvada, colorado. and was in a spree of bank
4:18 am
robberies that would crisscross the nation. >> he committed a total of ten bank robberies is a little startling. and the fact he got away with these crimes is even more startling. >> reporter: ten banks, one outfit. and 85 days later, the fbi still didn't have their man. on tuesday, the feds launched an all-out digital assault. plastering the allegedly dying man's face on billboards, posters, tv stations and online. the next day, a tipster called with his name. if he is who police say he is, this monday morning erie, pennsylvania, bank robbery may be his last. robbers normally rob banks while roaming the country is very unusual, out of the ordinary. and the question everyone wants to know the answer to, you just asked me, bianna. was this guy allegedly really dying? he hasn't told anyone yet. so, we don't know.
4:19 am
>> looking for sympathy, though. ron, thank you. time for the weather. and back over to ginger. >> it has been a super wet summer, especially in southern miami. not in the drought areas. they have had no problems with drought. around 30 inches above average for the year, above annual, at least. look at this. all this moisture being trapped. the stationary front draped across the middle of the country. that's going to mean a lot of rain up around this front in arkansas. big game in alabama and fayetteville. more as we head into east texas. houston, scattered showers and storms, too. and fall will be sticking around for a while. 60 for bismarck, after being at 87 today. cooling off as they start the week.
4:20 am
>> sometimes i'll get these twitter photos and i'll write back to the person and say, are you sure it's not photoshopped. and this one swears it's not. that yellow sky. and wichita, kansas. this one was just gorgeous. the angle it was taken. the cirrus clouds. who doesn't like a nice cirrus cloud? >> ron doesn't like the cirrus clouds. >> well, the veneer of authenticity. >> thank you, ginger. now, to breaking pet news. a commonly-employed argument in the age-old debate is that dogs are more loyal. >> it's an assumption being called into question by a cat
4:21 am
who found a way to tagalong, as its owner went to disney world. john schriffen has more. >> reporter: when ethel maze backed her bags for her group vacation in orlando, bob-bob the cat didn't want to stay behind. secretly purring his way into maze's suitcase monday. how did the cat get into the suitcase? >> i was packing. i just laid the suitcase out on the floor. >> reporter: wide-open? >> wide-open. >> reporter: not knowing the cat's in the bag, she checked in at the columbus airport and took off. 921 miles later -- >> unzipped to put my clothing in the drawer. oh, my. you'll never guess what's in my suitcase. >> reporter: how did bob-bob get through security checks and x-rays totally undetected?
4:22 am
the transportation security administration tells abc news, when they check bags, they're looking for security threats, not pets. saying, quote, we would not necessarily have the ability to look for or to identify a pet if it were inside a checked bag. so, after nearly a week hanging out in this hotel room, how is bob-bob getting back home? we contacted southwest airlines, and they're going to waive the $75 fare for you. >> really? isn't that something? thank you. >> reporter: but this kitty won't be wracking up any feline frequent flyer mile. app the trip home, maze will be making sure this little black bundle won't be hiding out in anymore bags. for "good morning america," john schriffen, abc news, orlando. >> yeah. >> i like the official statement from homeland security. >> i can't understand how they can't pick up a cat in an x-ray. coming up here on the broadcast, battle royale. new pictures of william and kate out in public this morning. now, the palace is suing that

that is the duke and duchess of cambridge, in borneo this morning, the latest stop on their tour of asia. prince william and kate appear to be all-smiles. but insiders say they are very angry of those photos of kate, published in a french gossip magazine. and this morning, appear in an italian magazine, as well. the royal palace responding lightning-fast. this is the angriest they have been in years. good morning, america. i'm bianna golodryga. >> and i'm dan harris. alongside ginger zee and ron claiborne, on this saturday, september 15th. if you see this woman on the road, you may want to pull over. she is amanda bynes, the hollywood starlet. she has a suspended license, after multiple accidents and a dui. so, what's the deal with these new pictures showing her around apparently smoking some sort of pipe?
4:31 am
why they allowed her to stay on the road. we're going to get into these pressing questions in a little bit. and 3,000 miles on 3,000 pounds of bacon. you're a bacon-lover. >> i love bacon. >> can it be done? one man tries to barter his way across the country using one of our favorite foods as currency. can he do it? >> social engineering coming up on the broadcast. we're going to start this half hour, with the royals royally peeved at the palace this morning. will and kate feeling violated and now feeling litigious, suing the french magazine that published the shots of the duchess. this as another magazine plans to publish the pictures this morning. reena ninan is covering the story. >> reporter: none of the british newspapers chose to run any of the images. but the headlines in today's "daily mirror" pretty much sums up prince william's feelings. i won't let kate suffer like my mother. william and kate touring the rain forest of borneo. where half the world away, those
4:32 am
topless photos gone global. an italian magazine has porched and will publish more photos next week. the palace striking back and striking fast. launching legal proceedings against the french tabloid magazine that published the photos of kate sunbathing on a private balcony. abc news has chosen not to show those images. the et tore of the magazine suggested there's more photos to come. photos she says were too personal to run. friday was kate's first public appearance at a mosque. so similar to princess diana, in egypt back in 1992. but it's this similarity of furious prince william doesn't want repeated. bob woodruff is traveling with the royal couple. >> there's no public indication on how william and kate feel. but as they continue on this tour, what we know for sure is that their blood is just boiling. >> reporter: a similar reaction
4:33 am
in london. >> poor girl will be afraid to take her socks off anywhere she goes now. >> reporter: and the french editor who published the photos says, don't blame her. the couple was tanning on to a terrace that looks on to a public road where thousands of cars pass. the question is more about security than media frenzy. a court proceeding is set to take place in france on monday. and it's likely we'll learn the identity of who that photographer was who owns the rights to these images. bianna? >> thank you. abc news royal contributor, victoria arbiter joins us for more on this scandal. the palace moved so quickly to file this lawsuit. does this speak to how angry they are right now? >> it really does. the palace moved at lightning speed. and that speaks volumes about william in particular to put an end to this. and to send a clear message, which the statement did. we're learning that this italian magazine is planning to publish
4:34 am
pictures later this week. in a way, it's good that william and kate have moved so fast. hopefully they'll be in time to put a stop to it. >> there's a chance they will? >> there really is a chance. everything is in favor of william and kate. they were at a private residence, on a private holiday. they believed themselves to be sunbathing completely privately. paparazzi were hiding in the bushes. and the french have strong privacy rules. so, they have grounds to really put an end to this. >> and not to blame kate at all. but given that she is probably the most photographed woman in the world, and she has done no wrong, since she's come to the public light. do you think she was wise to walk outside bearing it all? >> i think what happened has been a very harsh lesson. and perhaps it was a little naive to think as such a high-profile couple they were entirely alone. having said that, there is a reasonable expectation of privacy. they were staying at a family member's house. there was, perhaps, the full sense of security. but it's a lesson learned in probably the cruelest way.
4:35 am
>> and how about the damage control the palace is taken right now, since we just had this incident with harry here in the states. now, we're seeing this happen. >> i think, really, the different approach to this because with harry, yes, it was very stupid. but he knew that those photographs were being taken. with william and kate, it is a total different breach of privacy. it's an invasion of their privacy. as damage control, they're sending a clear message to say this will not be tolerated moving forward. we won't stand for it. >> prince william standing up for his wife and defending her? >> william really he witnessed firsthand what overzealous photographers can do. you have to look to his mother. he is protective. and he will take that stand moving forward. >> great to have you on set with us. now, the other morning's top stories. back to ron claiborne. >> really, the security issue there. someone said in the meepiece tot the photos there. the mysterious him faker
