looking for a mommy. the baby gorilla being raised by humans right now, going on a one of a kind air lift on a private plane. and we're there every step of the way. is this the gorilla who's about to say, "we are family"? and we do say good morning, america. and, yes, i am going, oh, it's a sweet little face. a face only a mama could love. but the mama rejected kamina. that's the little gorilla's name. she's on a journey to find a new family and we can't wait to share more on that ahead. but first we have news to get to. a lot of news to get to. abc news has learned of new air strikes against isis overnight. warning that everyone needs to be on alert for retaliation from
7:02 am
isis sympathizers here in the u.s. abc's brian ross has the very latest. >> good morning, george. with the new air strikes on isis overnight, u.s. officials are warning of possible retaliation here at home. a bulletin from the fbi and homeland security said the air strikes might further embolden home grown terrorists to strike in the u.s., that there have been changes in the homeland threat environment. this morning, the u.s. is studying the aftermath footage to assess the damage, which military officials say show precise hits with little collateral damage. on the ground, a video from the a jihadist from the netherlands showed the damage at one of the sites targeted by the u.s. >> many brothers died, many wounded. >> reporter: but without u.s. soldier on the ground, officials
7:03 am
say it's difficult to determine if any senior leaders were killed. >> you can't determine that from 10,000 or 30,000 feet. this is the command and control network. >> reporter: u.s. authorities are expressing confidence that the air strikes disrupted an imminent plot to blow up american passenger jets by a small elite unit, called the khorasan group. >> they had a plan in place, people to do is and explosives to do it. >> reporter: they were developing a series of explosives that could not be detected by current airport screening machines. which earlier this year enhanced security steps involving cell phones and appliances at u.s. and european airports. attorney general eric holder talked about it with katie couric. >> i can say that the enhanced security measures that we took in the aviation sector was based on concerns about the khorasan group is planning to do. >> reporter: with authorities on higher alert around the world, police in australia shot and killed a suspected isis militant after he attacked two police officers with a knife. complaining his passport had been canceled for national security reasons. australian prime minister said, police must be vigilant, because
7:04 am
quote, there are people capable of extreme acts. a warning being echoed at home by the fbi, george. >> it is just a global alert. thanks very much. let's get more on this from our chief white house correspondent, jon karl. the president announced these air strikes against iraq and syria. but at the time, the strikes against the group khorasan weren't even planned. >> it was fascinating, september 10th, primetime address to the nation. the president made a decision to expand air strikes into syria. khorasan was not on the list. it was not part of the battle plan. the reason they decided to add them, there had been reporting about this group and u.s. officials were concerned about it. they were concerned it was going to drive the group underground, they would miss their opportunity to hit them. they were concerned once want bombs started dropping on isis, they would run to ground and miss the opportunity. >> the president coming to the united nations again today to make the case. >> he has the speech before the general assembly. but the more significant meeting, he's going to be chairing a meeting of the
7:05 am
the u.n. security council and passing a resolution calling on nations to stop the flow of foreign fighters. of course, that's the big concern. >> that's right. the president does not believe he needs any u.n. authorization for these strikes. >> with the president in town, nice to have you here. >> great to be here. now to the latest on missing uva hannah graham. police officially charging jesse matthew with abducting her. a wide manhunt is under way. steve osunsami is tracking it all for us. >> reporter: this morning, what looks like a big break in the mysterious disappearance of 18-year-old hannah graham. police charging 32-year-old jesse matthew with her abduction, accusing him of a sex crime. >> we reached that point where the commonwealth felt we had sufficient probable cause to seek an arrest warrant. >> reporter: his wanted poster now plastered with the new charge, abduction with the intent to defile, accused of
7:06 am
kidnapping the university stude student. police believe the hospital operating assistant is the last person to see graham. meeting her at a downtown mall near the university. and then witnesses saw him buying her drinks at this restaurant and bar. investigators say they're not sure where matthew went when he walked into police quarters this weekend, spoke with a lawyer, and then sped away with police who were following him. >> there are state and federal resources that have been released and deployed to help accomplish that task. >> reporter: police are waiting for a complete set of test results from samples they took from matthew's car and clothes they removed from his apartment. his friends and neighbors arguing his innocence, but begging him to turn himself in. >> come back to the police station, tell what you know and get it over with. >> reporter: his alleged victim, still missing. police say they're still searching. >> we absolutely are continuing our search for hannah as we
7:07 am
speak, and we will continue our search for hannah. >> reporter: there has to be some evidence that police aren't sharing that has come to light. they've had plenty of opportunities to file this kind of charge, and they haven't done so until now. george? >> thanks. let's get more of that from dan abrams. what could this evidence be? >> you would think it's either some sort of dna evidence that they found in the context of a new search. maybe it's even a new surveillance video that they found that they didn't have before. that makes the most sense, the idea of finding additional surveillance video where they see him doing something that would lead to this. that makes the most sense. the idea of finding additional surveillance video where you see him doing something that would lead to this. this is a very specific crime. just the fact that he's on the lam, yes, that could be evidence against him, eventually. but not quite enough evidence to say he is -- we believe guilty of this very specific sexual crime. >> and now they're officially saying he is the suspect -- >> game-changer. before you were talking about reckless driving charge. you can't send out the state and
7:08 am
federal authorities looking for someone on a reckless driving charge. on this kind of crime and felony, you have massive resources that can be sent out. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. let's go to amy with today's other top stories. good morning. breaking news overnight, a journalist from los angeles kidnapped by pirates in somalia has been freed after three years in captivity. 45-year-old michael scott worked for a german magazine and was researching a book on piracy, when he was abducted on his way to the airport in january of 2012. moore is reported to be in good condition. also overnight, tensions flaring in ferguson, missouri. violence breaking out after a memorial for michael brown, the black teen shot by police, was destroyed by a fire. protesters looting the stores. gunfire heard in the streets, police arresting several people throwing rocks. no word on what caused the fire at the memorial. a new warning for home depot customers. the first fraudulent charges are showing up from that massive
7:09 am
credit data breach. crooks charging everything from electronics to groceries. but often, the first charges small. as little as $10 to see if the card works. the best advice, don't wait until the end of the month to check your bank state for unusual charges, do it now. hundreds of texas lottery players who thought they had won big money on a scratch ticket are fighting mad. they said a new game, fun five, was printed with misleading instructions. they are demanding the prize money. they hired a lawyer with plans to sue the lottery commission. they want their money. an unusual high speed chase near disneyland in california. the driver of this u-haul, refusing to stop. police using what is called a pit maneuver, forcing him to spin out. police tried to pull him over for failing to yield. turns out that u-haul truck was stolen. and responding to a car crash the other day, it was the pizza hut delivery man, he had
7:10 am
to go to the hospital to be checked out. that's when officers went above and beyond the call of duty. they completed the delivery. the people who ordered that pie were a little shocked to see the police at their front door. but everyone had a good laugh and a good slice when it was all over. >> did it get there in 30 minutes? >> exactly. >> i'm sure they put the tip up a little higher once they heard the story. >> thank you, officer. >> thank you, amy. now to the growing questions about the secret service and the president's safety. a new fence was built at the white house after last week's breach, and we're learning more this morning about a second incident where a seemingly disturbed man was admitted to a restricted parking lot. pierre thomas is in washington with the details. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning. today the secret service remains under fire from congress. there's word of another disturbing encounter at the white house, sources say
7:11 am
that is a scary reminder that the white house is becoming a chronic target for the mentally ill. just one day after a man climbed over a fence and got into the white house with a knife, another breach by another apparently mentally unstable men. kevin carr walked up and said he had an appointment with president obama. he had driven from new jersey, telling agents he was the prince of peace who often communicated with the president telepathically. carr, of course, was turned away. but minutes later, carr appeared at this white house entrance, now driving a chevy cruz. an officer unaware of the first encounter, directed carr to a restricted parking lot inside the complex for additional screening. but according to court records, instead of parking, he kept driving 25 feet in the direction of the white house and was immediately arrested. this morning, the secret service is saying the officer acted appropriately. but officials say cases like this demonstrate that the white house is a magnet for the mentally unstable. >> we see people who come to us from across the country.
7:12 am
they leave and they come to washington because they're obsessed with the federal government. >> reporter: most of the unstable are not dangerous, but some of them are, like this man firing into the white house in 1994. or this woman killed by police last year after she smashed her car into a white house gate. and this stunning statistic, d.c. mental health officials say every week, they encounter two to three people struggling with psychotic fixations on the first family or congress. >> that is something to keep in mind. >> all right, there, pierre. >> just a constant threat. and now to bill clinton in new york, the clinton global initiative conference. we spoke about the public service commitments inspired by that initiative over the last decade. and the former president weighed in on today's politics, the white house security breach and america's latest salvo in a decades-long war on terror. we saw president obama order air strikes into syria. what do you say to americans who think this war has just become a condition of modern life? >> first of all, by and large,
7:13 am
we were not going to war against nations. we were going to war against non-state actors. the world has made most borders more porous. technology has made the means of destruction at hand for more and more groups. >> it's the dark side of globalization. >> yeah. isis and the gates foundation have one thing in common, they're both non-governmental organizations. one does good and brings us together, the other drives us apart and kills people. it's a fact of modern life that power is more diffuse. >> another condition of modern life. presidential security. how surprised were you an intruder could jump the face and actually walk into the white house. >> i wasn't surprised he jumped the fence but i was quite surprised he got in. i don't know how that happened. >> i want to turn to politics. what do you think of president obama's situation? seems like he's in a box. even on foreign policy, on the specifics the country seems to agree with what he's doing. yet has the lowest approval rating on foreign policy in his entire presidency. how does he work his way out of that box?
7:14 am
>> well, i think, first of all, people are really shaken by those beheadings. horrible, horrible. the american people generally tend to judge a president by whether we are more secure and look strong. so i think they do support what he's decided to do. >> i wonder, is there something to this, you know, second term curse. you look at modern presidents. hit the sixth year, it's almost impossible for a president of either party to have much support that late in the game. >> i think his challenges are rooted in the fact that first of all, he had certain elements of the media and the republican party who were always against him. it's almost impossible for the average american to understand how totally political washington is today. >> take us out ten years. we were here ten years ago. the first cgi conference. and i asked you where did you want to be in ten years, and you said --
7:15 am
>> if we do this together for ten years, i think there will be a measurable impact on some of the world's most severe problems. >> promise kept? >> i think so. we can document improvements in the lives of 430 million people in 180 countries. we now have about half of the people in the world that are alive because of the aids medicine gotten off contracts that we negotiated. i think in terms of sheer gross impact, it's been bigger than i thought it would be. >> set the bar ten years from now. >> well, i'm always trying to work myself out of a job, so i'd like it if the world developed a preference for this model of problem solving. so in every country in every region there was support from government and nobody did things alone. the best practice is to get as many partners as you can around a complex problem and then basically have a network of cooperation. that's the best practice. we'll have a lot more on the initiative later in the program and a little clue about his
7:16 am
grandbaby-to-be. >> he's very excited about that. you two looked the same ten years ago. >> looks like you haven't aged a day in ten years. now to the dramatic rescue of a rock climber in idaho. the mother trapped in a remote area under a 1.5 ton granite boulder that dislodged as she was hiking. rescuers saying it was the most difficult mission they've ever encountered and abc's clayton sandell has that story. >> reporter: this morning, amy midstock is battered and bruised, but alive. after this dramatic helicopter rescue, capping off an ordeal, straight out of the movie "127 hours." they were navigating this rocky slope in northern idaho last friday when a 2,500-pound granite boulder gives way, hitting her on the head, then landing right on her foot, trapping her. >> and i tried to scramble out of the way. i was a little bit delirious
7:17 am
from the first impact. luthy, a trained paramedic, called for help. >> she's scared. we're going to make her as comfortable as possible. after nearly nine excruciating hours, laying facedown, stuck under the boulder, a volunteer search and rescue team arrives. >> that was a relief. >> reporter: using ropes and pulleys, they're able to lift the rock, but with midstock in no condition to hike out on her own, they are stuck for seven more hours, waiting for daylight and that air force rescue chopper. when the helicopter finally arrives, the terrain is too treacherous for it to land. the pilot must hover above as midstock is finally lifted off the mountain, foot broken, face bruised, but spirits high. >> she was smiling and thankful and cheery as she always is. >> reporter: for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> could not imagine. just so glad that everyone is all right. >> what a miracle.
7:18 am
ginger, you have heavy rain, flooding in florida. we see the pictures there. >> this is what it looks like in central florida. the last 24 hours or so. daytona beach picking up close to 7 inches since midnight. but look at the pictures out of orlando. wstv sending those in for us. check that out. it's like the car is pushing through. that's not very smart as many of us know. now, that's with the stationary front that originally wasn't associated with this low. the low going to track up, and the mid-atlantic into the northeast. get ready because we are about to get heavy rain. philadelphia to d.c. early tomorrow morning. new york city, let me warn you, tomorrow morning's commute is windy and super wet. your local forecast in just 30 seconds.

7:33 am

7:34 am
because if you believe his account, she says i have a special colombian coffee to try. he says great, let me try it. tries it, immediately says, wow, this tastes incredibly sweet. she says i put in splenda, et cetera. very shortly thereafter he's in the hospital. they say he's poisoned. wow. if you believe all of that, it's very hard to think of how the defense is going to be able to overcome that. they're saying medical evidence. they say well, he could have been poisoned at all sorts of different times. but that whole, try my special colombian brew, followed by, this tastes really sweet, isn't helpful to the defense. >> do you think the defendant will testify? >> i think probably not. in addition to the fact the defendants rarely testify in a case like this, in this case, you have six hours of audiotape. 14 different calls reported between him and her, she's denying it. she's saying, hey, move on with your life. et cetera.
7:35 am
i didn't do this. i don't know why you think it's me. why don't you check with your girlfriend. so i think that allows the defense to say we have put on our case in effect through these audiotapes. don't need to testify. >> this has been an odd one. >> and it's a tough case for the defendant. >> it is. thank you. >> thank you. now to the terrifying case of two utah teens. they were abducted while walking in the middle of the night, managed to escape after 19 harrowing hours. and they have released the 911 call to remind people that the suspects have not been caught. neal karlinsky has the story. >> reporter: at first the two teenage girls were so hysterical, the 911 operator didn't understand. saying in these newly released calls, they had just escaped a terrifying kidnapping. >> they took us in their car. >> someone took you in his car? >> yes. >> reporter: this morning, bountiful, utah, police, are trying to track down who
