roger goodell agrees with ray rice, it was this video from tmz apparently showing the baltimore ravens star abusing his future wife that earned rice a two-game suspension. but after a public outcry, goodell has now sent a letter and memo to all 32 nfl team owners saying that he made a bad call. and laying down the league's harsh new rules against domestic violence. a six-game suspension without pay for the first offense. and a lifetime ban after the second. and it doesn't just apply to players, but to all nfl personnel, including owners. >> it's not just domestic violence. once you dig into this letter, you realize it's assault, it's violence. it's any kind of violence. >> reporter: a banished player will be allowed to petition for reinstatement after one year. the nfl players' association responded in a statement. if we believe that players' due process rights are infringed upon during the course of discipline, we will assert and defend our members' rights. >> it would be hard as a union to sit there and say we don't agree with this message.

turning to the growing isis threat in the middle east and how the president, islamic militant group, released another chilling bit of propaganda. captured syrian soldiers stripped to their underwear, forced to march in the desert before being executed. but this ruthlessness getting a surprising reaction from the white house just days after approving surveillance flights over syria. the president had this to say. >> the suggestion seems to have been that we're about to go full scale on an elaborate strategy for defeating isil. i don't want to put the cart before the horse. we don't have a strategy yet. after the mid-term -- >> the president saying there's no strategy against the group. cabinet secretaries said we'll be crushed. the president's comments, prompting immediate criticism from republicans and damage control from the white house. president obama is also condemning the latest violent push by russian-backed forces in

ukraine. here's abc's hamish macdonald. >> reporter: plumes of smoke as shells rain down. ukraine leaders are clear this is a russian invasion. >> the russian military boots are on ukrainian ground. >> reporter: ukrainian forces lost control of a border town and nato says at least 1,000 russian soldiers are inside the country, fighting alongside and supporting pro-russian separatists. but the kremlin was in full denial mode. this satellite imagery, though, is hard to dispute. nato claims it shows russian artillery and troops moving inside ukraine. what's clear is that there is now a war in europe. it has escalated far beyond those fiery protests we witnessed on the streets of kiev earlier this year. what happens here is they light a molotov cocktail, throw it in the direction of the police and then scurry back for protection. >> reporter: those protesters

3:37 am
charged with this crime today can only be described as that. >> the sheriff says this should be a lesson to the families of other cold case victims. never, ever give up hope that the case will not be solved. >> what's interesting here, she never would have left the grandchild's toys on the floor, so that was like the first kind of red flag back then. it's like, why are these legos everywhere? >> apparently now that the nephew of the suspect was telling police he had heard the suspect arguing with his wife and that the wife had apparently said she was threatening to tell police he had murdered a woman in utah. it is fascinating though on something that is so small, seeming so inconsequential could piece all this together. >> you can't get away with anything these days when it comes to csi tech, video cameras. you are kind -- it's a nice turn of events in the future. >> amazing. turning to other news. a boston woman recovering this
