7:02 am
we have a lot to get to this morning starting with that execution of another american journalist. authorities confirm overnight that video is steven sotloff being murdered by an isis militant. abc's brian ross is here with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. as you say u.s. authorities have confirmed the gruesome video is authentic as president obama vowed that isis will pay the price for the murder of a second american journalist. the president delivered fighting words this morning as he said isis will achieve nothing by the barbaric murders of steven sotloff and james foley. >> we will not be intimidated. their horrific acts only unite us as a country and stiffen our resolve to take the fight against these terrorists. >> reporter: u.s. officials say sotloff never had a chance in the hands of the brutal isis group despite an emotional plea for mercy from his mother. >> i ask you to please release my child. >> reporter: british authorities this morning said the hooded executioner appears to be the same british accented speaker who two weeks ago beheaded journalist james foley.
7:03 am
investigators are already comparing the voices from the two isis videos along with an analysis of the desert setting, the speaker's use of his left hand to hold the knife and his eyes. earlier u.s. facial recognition experts had created this likeness from an examination of the eyes and the president this morning vowed to find whoever was responsible. >> and those who make the mistake of harming americans will learn that we will not forget and that our reach is long and that justice will be served. >> reporter: at the end of the sotloff video isis produced yet another western hostage, identified as a british citizen named david haynes threatening to do the same to him and u.s. officials say there are at least two more americans being held by isis, two young aid workers who had gone to syria to help civilians caught in the middle of the strife. >> such a difficult situation. brian, thanks. let's bring in the rest of our team. martha rad dats in washington,
7:04 am
jon karl traveling with the president. and, jon, let me begin with you. in those remarks, the president laid out a bold goal and said the bottom line the u.s. goal is to degrade and destroy isis as a threat. >> reporter: that's right, george. very definitively this is beyond where he's gone but there seemed to be a mixed message. when he was asked to clarify if he was now saying the u.s. wants to destroy isis, he backtracked significantly saying we can continue to shrink isis' sphere of influence to the point where it is a manageable problem. so in the course of one set of remarks, he went from talking about destroying this terrorist group to making it into a manageable problem. >> martha raddatz, so many believe you can only take on isis if you go into syria but the president making very clear today that he is not going to move forward with a dramatic expansion without a broad coalition. >> reporter: one of the things you heard the president say again this morning the need to build that regional coalition, but the key really is syria and it is hard to see how the u.s. does not eventually launch air strikes there, given what the president said today, even though as jon says there was a
7:05 am
bit of a mixed message but the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff has said in order to defeat isis, you have deal with the situation in syria. that is where isis has a safe haven right now. that is where military options are being presented to the president even though he has not made a final decision. >> and, martha, we also learned overnight that the united states is sending 350 new troops to iraq. >> reporter: the extra 350 u.s. forces are being sent for additional security at the embassy and the airport. but this tells you there is increasing worry that isis is intent on going after americans and they want to make sure embassy employees are safe or can get out of there if needed, george. >> jon, part of the reason the president is pushing back against russian aggression in the ukraine, there's conflicting reports about a cease-fire. >> reporter: a statement out of the president of ukraine's office suggesting they've worked out a cease-fire with the russians but a denial from vladimir putin's office and the
7:06 am
president was directly asked about this and said it's simply too early to tell but not a lot of confidence in this. the president himself pointed out that previous talk of cease-fire has failed because the russians have violated or pretended they have nothing to do with what's going on in ukraine. >> thanks very much. to a desperate manhunt for a gunman who went on a shooting rampage in kansas city killing three people and critically injuring two others. abc's ryan smith is here and has the latest for us. >> reporter: good morning. police looking for any tips from the public after a triple homicide locked down an entire town and shook residents to their core. this morning, a massive manhunt after a day of murder and chaos in this quiet kansas city neighborhood. >> just looked like mayhem. >> reporter: it started shortly before 1:00 p.m. when police found one person dead outside a home. inside, two critically injured. concerned about more victims police knocked on doors breaking
7:07 am
into houses where no one was home. they found two more dead and one injured. >> this is a huge crime scene. >> i can't imagine anyone wanting to do them harm. >> reporter: authorities aren't sure of a motive but the entire town was put on lockdown including area schools. >> he's gonna be armed with a shotgun possibly. >> we are very concerned. we want people to be safe. we want them to feel safe in their neighborhoods. >> reporter: police believe this suv which belonged to one of the shooting victims could be the getaway vehicle. it was parked four blocks from a motel 6 where three people from the motel reported being physically assaulted two hours after the manhunt began and knbc reporting that police detained a person of interest in that case. he was apprehended on foot but it is not clear if that person of interest and the triple homicides are linked. and police saying the gun found on the motel assault and attempted charge acting crime suspect will be one of the many pieces of evidence they use to see if there's a link. in the meantime, this community
7:08 am
is still on edge. robin? george? >> all right. ryan, thank you. >> understandably so. now to amy who has the morning's other top developing stories right now. good morning. we begin with another possible credit breach at one of america's top retailers and this could be the biggest one yet. home depot is investigating whether customer credit card data has been stolen and sold online. experts say all 2200 home depot stores could be affected possibly making this fraud bigger than the breach at target last year when 40 million cards were stolen by eastern european hackers. home depot says if it confirms the breach it will notify customers right away. and we expect to learn more today about the third american infected with the deadly ebola virus. what we do know, he's an obstetrician working in a hospital in liberia. the director of the cdc is sounding a dire alarm warning the ebola crisis is spiraling out of control and a quick vaccine is unlikely. so far ebola has killed more

7:15 am
and while security experts say it's unlikely the photos will ever be completely scrubbed from the internet they say a thorough investigation will help shed light on the dark underworld of internet hackers. >> it's almost like they have contests to see who could outdo each other. i mean, it's this crazy, sort of underground little ring they've got going on. >> reporter: how can you protect your pictures and your information online? you don't want to just use one strong password. instead many websites are offering two-step verification. choose that option and you will get an added layer of protection. it might be a nuisance but it's completely worth it, rocken. >> totally is is, rebecca. thank you for that. that's the dark side of the iphone but there are some good uses. >> yeah, there's a bright side to that. now to that incredible rescue all thanks to a very smart app for your smartphone. a washington state man's springing into action when he got a message alerting a baby nearby stopped breathing.
