7:03 am
threat yet against the u.s. and its allies, quote, if you can kill a disbelieving american or european, especially the spiteful or filthy french or australian or canadian, or any other disbeliever, then rely upon allah and kill him in whatever manner or way, however it may be. this threat comes as isis posts new pictures of some of its british recruits and president obama heads to the u.n. to seek an international effort to stop isis travelers from traveling unimpeded to spread their war on terror, but a representative from the u. u.s. ambassador's office told abc news, stopping the threat from isis and its fighters won't happen any time soon. >> we think the strategy can succeed. and most importantly, we have the greatest military in the
7:04 am
world. they believe that. >> how long will this take? >> think the president has said it will be over several years. >> reporter: while much they do is sheer propaganda, u.s. authorities say the threat from isis is real. the latest videos underscore the importance and the urgency of the president's mission at the u.n. >> trying to build that coalition. >> let's go back to the afghan soldiers. we're concerned because of everything going on. authorities believe they are looking for a better life? >> reporter: correct. probably enjoying the joys of hyannis, may have attracted them. the search is on to find them and see what the real answer is. now to the secret service under fire. an armed man managed to make it inside the front door, one of two frightening incidents at 1600 pennsylvania avenue over the weekend. abc's senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, has the latest and joins us from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. in a few hours, the suspect will be in court to face charges. there's still the nagging question. how did a homeless man get by the secret service and inside one of the most secure buildings on the planet? with this cell phone video shot by a surprise bystander, the breakdown in security becomes
7:05 am
painfully clear. first this man is able to scale the white house fence, then he's on the grounds running, able to travel more than 100 yards unimpeded before he gets to the front door of the white house, even getting inside. look again. there's a secret service officer watching the suspect run. but powerless to stop him. the front door was unlocked. we now know the suspect, omar gonzalez, a homeless iraq war veteran, was carrying a 3 1/2-inch knife and was likely mentally unstable. he allegedly told the agents that arrested him, he was concerned the atmosphere was collapsing and he needed to get the information to the president. the breach which came just minutes after the president and daughters boarded marine one and sent secret service agents scrambling. now congress is demanding answers. >> how anyone could get into the white house without being stopped is inexcusable. >> reporter: critical question remain. why weren't dogs used to impede him? why couldn't agents responding
7:06 am
from the perimeter tackle him outside? and why was the front door unlocked? law enforcement forces tell abc news the secret service was left to make a life and death december in seconds. they knew the first family had just departed. they could see the suspect was not heavily armed. the decision was made not to use lethal force. the agency has been trying to overcome recent past scandals. uninvited guests making their way to a state dinner. allegations of prostitution solicitation and drunkenness on overseas trips. this morning, the secret service is stepping up security and a comprehensive review is under way. they admit this last breach, quote, is unacceptable. george? >> could see more changes. thanks very much. now to the massive wildfire on the move in northern california. raging for ten days, destroying homes as it roars toward lake tahoe. aditi roy is on the front lines. >> reporter: this morning, the sea of flames has already scorched ten homes and 82,000 acres, is now heading towards the tahoe national forest, as experts fear it could get even

those infants and 40 employees may have been exposed to the contagious disease by coming in contact with a hospital employee, who tested positive for active tb. >> this is an unfortunate incident we're going to get through. we're going to help the babies, moms, and dads. >> reporter: the official said the employee tested positive for tb last month during a routine annual screening. anyone that came in close contact with them in the past year may be at risk. the employee is now on leave. >> one cannot say that, you know, 100% of all employees at any hospital will be free of any communicable disease. >> reporter: tuberculosis mostly affects the lungs, but can spread to the brain, kidney, and spine. the symptoms include a hacking cough. the bacteria, airborne. spread by coughs and sneezes. tuberculosis is highly

vintage chevy ends up sticking out of the windshield. but he somehow managed to walk away from that crash. he admits he did not anchor the seat belts properly when he restored the car. and finally, it was billed at the super bowl rematch. it lived up to the hype, even after the game was over. the broncos trying to avenge the super bowl blowout rallied against the sewhawks. taking the game into overtime. but, seattle won the coin flip and never looked back, rushing into the end zone, winning, 26-20. but the big highlight was the romance that followed. seattle's deshawn shead proposing to his girlfriend on the field in front of all of the cameras. she was very surprised but after the shock wore off, she said yes. that's good. and there were hugs for everyone on the field. you can see the celebration going on there. the happy couple later posted this beautiful picture on instagram. congratulations to them. more good news from the field. we're happy to report.

7:14 am
crystal clear in their original post. >> the punch is as clear as it could be. i'm not quite sure what we could hear about editing of that that would change the nation's perception. >> reporter: rice's former team also facing new scrutiny this morning. espn's "outside the lines" reporting that the baltimore ravens had a detailed description of the elevator beating hours after it happened. and that rice's attorney told the team president that the video was horrible when he obtained it in april, but that the ravens never asked for a copy. >> it's telling about the ravens' lack of aggressiveness in trying to get the video. >> reporter: the espn report also highlighting alleged inconsistencies from roger goodell. the embattled commissioner, seen attending sunday's texas game, apologized for his handling of the ray rice and other nfl sagas on friday. >> we have seen all too much of the nfl doing wrong. >> reporter: but also claimed rice was not completely truthful about the elevator incident
7:15 am
during his june hearing. >> when the second video came out, that was inconsistent with the information we had. it was new information. >> reporter: the baltimore ravens released a statement saying the "outside the lines" report contains numerous errors, inaccuracies, false assumptions and perhaps misunderstandings. the team is going to address the report this week, george. >> it's hard to imagine how the tape might help. meanwhile, the difference between what the commissioner is saying about the meeting, what wra rice is saying about the meeting, that's going to be key. >> that's what everything is about here. the commissioner is saying he was ambiguous. he didn't tell me everything. ray rice is saying, i did. many people think, if he told him everything, the video doesn't make a big difference because we saw the aftermath. i think that's what is going to be critical in all of this. >> thank you, ryan. now to lara. george, we have a dramatic river rescue captured on camera. an incredible scene with good samaritans racing to the rescue when they spot an suv plunging

fans of abc's "scandal," especially the ladies, probably watch it as much for olivia's outfits as the omg moments. she did not do that. few of us have olivia's fashion budget. not to worry, though, as olivia would say, it's handled. here now with a sneak peek of
8:43 am
the new "scandal" collection from the limited are three gladiator collaborators. star kerry washington, costume designer lynn paolo and the limited's head of design, elliott staples. we welcome all three of you. what a massive power collaboration between you, kerry, you, lynn, and the limited. to create this collection. tell us a little bit about this. why don't we start with you? >> when we get together for our fittings every episode people make fun of us because lynn and i go into a room and giggle for two hours. and come up with all the looks for the show. it's an important team process. we have grown in love with each other over the years. >> and we know, congratulations, you were working on another production as you were developing this. >> all the ups and downs as it were. when elliott came along, it's like he's been with us the whole time. he's such a fan of the show. such a gladiator himself. and so when we started collaborating, we all really were on the same page with what we want this to be how we want
8:44 am
it to look. how we want to honor the aesthetic for the show. >> so much to choose from when you're looking at olivia pope and her style and what these women have created, how would you narrow it down and how would you define this collection? >> it was so easy. kerry and lynn's work on the character has made her so consistent and so aspirational. it was easy to come up with iconic looks for her. working with the two of them, it came together in a snap. >> as operation -- aspirational yet affordable. >> affordable. >> affordable. i love all the "a" words. >> it's true. >> it is true. how many pieces are in the collection? >> 42 pieces for fall. an additional 40 pieces in the holiday collection. opening retails will be $49 up to $298. >> the great thing about the collection, there's 42 pieces. they all work with each other. we wanted to make sure that if you buy a bunch of pieces, you can put them in the closet and come up with hundreds of looks based on each item. >> we were talking behind the scenes how hands-on you have been.
8:45 am
you wanted to make sure you got this right. >> i'm not sure that elliott knew how obsessive lynn and i are. we talk about finding a look. and then the extra 15 minutes to where it's okay, and then it's perfect and olivia pope. we were all hands on. fedexing butness to -- buttons back and forth across the country. making sure it was exactly what it needed to be. >> it's so pope-like. let's see the looks. the first model, here we go, everybody. this is sasa and tell us about this look and will we see this on you? >> yeah. >> absolutely. kerry has already worn this on the show. we feel it's very olivia pope. the black and white. the tapered waistline and the tweed. which gives a little texture. it's already on the show. >> and the fact that it's pants. olivia wears the pants. >> she sure does. next up, aliyah. in a cape. loving the cape moments. i know lynn is a big fan of the cape.
8:46 am
show us how to translate the cape to the real world. >> i'm obsessed with the cape. this is my favorite piece of the collection. we actually repeat it later as well. plaid is on trend. a cape is seasonless. it is beautiful. it fits so well. so chic. a way to upgrade any look immediately. i have worn capes on the show. i like this one more so far. i might have to wear that one, too. >> me, too. elliott, do you feel you're the head designer for the limited. is a limited shopper going to understand how to work that cape? are we going to be able to -- >> absolutely. the great thing about this cape, too, is it looks amazing as an outerwear piece. you can open it up and wear it as a jacket. >> we have one more look. thank you so much. a dolman sleeved wrap coat over a tulip skirt sheath dress. and -- >> you look stunning. >> absolutely gorgeous. and there's olivia pope's
8:47 am
version in the monitor. talk to me about this look, ladies. >> the palette is classic olivia. soft neutrals and a hint of color in the mix. she doesn't wear a ton of dresses except for flashback moments. we wanted dresses in the collection for sure to round it out. the dress is an olivia-inspired version. the cocoon coat. >> i absolutely love it. i think so will someone in our audience. we've been upgrading. >> we want to show everybody the dress. >> meanwhile, i have a fish bowl. because somebody in the audience will get one of these outfits thanks to you guys. i'm going to pick a number out. i'm not looking. and we're going to upgrade someone's morning with a little bit of fashion. so, how about number 15. >> 15, 15, who are you? >> number 15, come on over the. >> where are you 15? >> 15, you're going to get your own.

and i'm here with ioan gruffudd, taking on a new role in the new abc drama, "forever." he plays new york city's star medical examiner who just happens to be immortal. when he dies, he has a curious way of coming back to life. take a look. [ gasping ] >> since that night nearly two centuries ago, every time i die, i always return in water. and i'm always naked. lends itself to some slightly awkward situations. now you know about as much about my condition as i do. >> yeah, that will bring some applause. i have to ask, is it wrong for me to ask, how naked are you really when you're shooting all of those scenes? >> i was completely naked. shooting it. >> you were not. >> yes, i was. i was hiding everything with my hands, yes, my bare hands. >> do you feel the need to work out all the time? >> well, if your thing is pasty

white, thin, british men, you're going to love our show. no, but it's, i'm no hugh jackman, let's be honest. underneath there. >> oh, i think a lot of women will like what they see. you've been alive for 200 years. you're not a vampire. not a zombie. can you explain that? >> in our show, i'm a character who has lived for 200 years. yes, i'm immortal. but he sees this as a curse rather than a blessing, because if you can imagine living for 200 years and everybody else is not immortal, people come and go in your life. people pass on. it's a bit of a tragedy. so it's an interesting dichotomy. the character lives and breathes and works in a medical examiner's office. he's surrounded by death but he can't die himself. >> that is a very interesting premise. the only one who knows your secret is judd hirsch. what is it like to work with him? >> he's amazing. if you can imagine a score of a

symphony. as a young actor you play the mellody. judd can play the melody, the baseline, everything in between. he's a legend. >> we cannot wait to watch. thank you so much for stopping by, ioan. two new episodes, a special preview of the premier tonight at 10:00 p.m. and an all-new episode on tuesday at 10:00 p.m. the regular time period premier. can't wait for it. we'll be right back.
