staging a kidnapping vindicated. >> they're absolutely 100% not just not guilty but innocent. >> a former marine and harvard law school grad now accused of the bizarre abduction that made national headlines. and miracle survivor. this 16-year-old found on the mountain road two days after her family's small plane slammed into the side of a mountain. the unlikely place she learned the skills to survive. and good morning, america. we want to get right to the big breaking news for our viewers in the west. after years of negotiations, an historic nuclear deal with iran. it's designed to block that country, which america calls a state sponsor of terror from building a nuclear weapon. >> here are some of the the key points in the major agreement. it keeps iran from producing enough material for a nuclear weapon for at least ten years. in exchange, the west will lift
7:02 am
crippling sanctions on iran, including a long-standing arms embargo. it has huge implications for safety and security around the world. >> president obama spoke a sport time ago. the iranian president says a new chant sir opened. israel's leader already lashing out. calling it a historic mistake. martha raddatz starts our coverage in tehran. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. there are expected to be celebrations all day today on the streets of tehran after the announcement of this historic deal. 20 months of negotiations, fiery and contentious in the last weeks, led this morning to this remarkable announcement. >> today, after two years of negotiations the united states together with our international partners has achieved something that decades of animosity has not. a comprehensive, long-term deal
7:03 am
with iran. >> reporter: the deal will keep iran from producing enough material for a nuclear weapon for at least ten years. and increase iran's so-called breakout time. the amount of time it would take them to build a bomb if they decided to go ahead. right now, it would take them a short two to three months to build a bomb if they wanted. now, with an agreement in place, it would take at least a year. in addition, u.n. inspectors can demand access to nuclear facilities, including military sites. though the inspections would not be immediate. an arms embargo will stay in place for up to eight years for ballistic missiles and five years for conventional arms. what does iran get? relief from the crippling oil and financial sanctions. it will mean billions and billions of dollars in increased trade. it is a deal that will not only change the nuclear landscape but
7:04 am
could fundamentally change the relationship between the u.s. and iran. relations severed after the 1979 hostage taking when 52 americans were held for 444 days. >> and i have no doubt that 10 or 15 greers now, the person who holds this office will be in a far stronger position with iran further away from a weapon. >> reporter: reaction from israel is swift and strong. prime minister benjamin netanyahu accusing the u.s. and partners of making far-reaching decisions that will fund terror. and by that, the prime minister clearly means military action if necessary. as for the iranians, the foreign minister this morning called this deal, a win-win for iran. robin? >> all right, thank you very much. terry moran has been covering these talks from the beginning in vienna. terry, how did this deal come together? days of negotiation got very tense at the end. >> reporter: robin, at the end,
7:05 am
it was a combination of long hours, late nights, creative problem solving and just plain grit. there were 18 days of grueling negotiations here. after two years and more of intense diplomacy. there was so much distrust to overcome. between the u.s. and iran. secretary of state john kerry and the iranian foreign minister forging a genuine partnership. over that time. that helped. what really drove this deal was national interest. as defined by the leaders. president obama looking for a diplomatic solution to the iranian nuclear problem and the iranian leaders wanting to get out from under the sanctions. that was what made this deal happen. robin? >> all right, terry, thank you. we want to go tojon karl at the white house. the president welcomes a debate from congress. he'll get it. >> reporter: the view from the white house is that this is an historic diplomatic accomplishment. one that will guarantee that iran can not have the ability to build a nuclear weapon for ten years. the view from congress is
7:06 am
starkly different. from that. saying that this does not do enough to unravel the iranians' ability to build a nuclear weapon. and it lifts an embargo in place for the purchase of weapons that's been in place for more than ten years. congress will loudly object. not just republicans. look for real concerns from democrats, fellow democrats, saying this deal is not tough enough on iran. >> thank you to jon karl and our entire team. robin? >> all right, george. now the -- to the stunning arrest of the son of a boston police captain busted for allegedly plotting a major terror attack sponsored by isis and turned in by his own father. he's 1 of at least 11 suspects the fbi has arrested in the past few weeks. believed to be tied to the terror group. brian ross is here with those details. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, robin. officials credit the boston police captain for stopping a poe finally deadly terror attack at an american college campus by
7:07 am
turning in his own son, who authorities say sought to carry out the next big isis massacre. he lived in a small massachusetts town in the picturesque berkshires. and 23-year-old alexander ciccolo, a one-time peace activist seen here was also the son of a respected boston police captain. but the fbi says he turned on his father, captain robert ciccolo, and other family members who were also cops, in an effort to become an isis killer. the fbi says ciccolo, a recent convert to islam, was inspired by the isis attack on a beach resort in tunisia. and by the boston marathon bomb attacks and the deadly pressure cooker bombs, where his father, captain ciccolo was among those on the scene. officials say the captain actually told the fbi about his son last year reporting he had gone off the deep end and become a jihadist.
7:08 am
ciccolo's plan on behalf of isis the fbi says was to build his own pressure cooker bombs to attack a major college campus and a nearby gay bar. and then, execute nonmuslim students live via the internet. his plot was disrupted when the fbi arrested him on the morning of july 4th, after he had bought four high-powered weapons from an undercover fbi operative. a raid of his apartment, the fbi says turned up a pressure cooker bought just the day before as well as a variety of other bombmaking materials. he'll be in court today where federal prosecutors will oppose any effort to release him. in a statement, his family said they're saddened and disappointed to learn of their son's intentions but grateful authorities were able to prevent a loss of life or harm to others. >> thank you, brian. we turn to the deadly weather overnight. one person killed by flash floods. dozens of homes washed away. kendis gibson is in morehead,

7:12 am

7:13 am
those survival shows, like "survivorman" on the discovery channel. >> survival. expeditions. >> reporter: clearly she was paying attention. >> survivorman should be very proud of her. >> reporter: autumn tells investigators her step-grandparents are dead. so far, searchers have not been able to find them or any of the plane's wreckage which tells you just how rugged these woods really are. george? >> thanks, ryan. we have new details this morning on the daring prison break by one of the world's most notorious drug lords. authorities releasing a recent photo of el chapo, as the search for the kingpin intense fies. gio benitez has the latest from mexico. >> reporter: this morning, new details in the prison break of joaquin "el chapo" guzman. this recent photo released overnight to help with the search. offering a nearly $4 million reward for help with his capture. abc news learning the escape plan for the man whose nickname translates to the shorty was at

7:31 am
was abducted from her home, her boyfriend tied up and drugged, police accused them of faking the kidnapping. now, another man is behind bars. and authorities are saying it was not a hoax. abc's cecilia vega is in vallejo, california, with the story. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. this story is so bizarre, police didn't even believe it. but the fbi now says what happened inside this home here behind me is, indeed, very real, a reality stranger than fiction. this morning, vindication. >> today is a fabulous day for denise huskins, for aaron quinn, they are absolutely 100% not just not guilty but innocent. >> reporter: it was a real-life "gone girl," the northern california couple accused of staging a kidnapping just like the plot of a hollywood blockbuster. >> meticulously stage a crime scene. >> reporter: police accusing them of making up an elaborate story of being tied up drugged,
7:32 am
and held for ransom. >> mr. quinn and miss huskins has plundered valuable resources away from our community. >> reporter: but now, four months after the misystery began, the fbi announcing an arrest in the case. 38-year-old matthew muller, a former marine, a harvard law grad, a disbarred immigration lawyer. >> criminal complaint has been lodged against him charging kidnapping. we'll be pleading not guilty. >> reporter: the couple holding hands and holding back tears. >> this changes nothing about the humiliation, the violence that was perpetrated on them, nearly four months ago by a psychopath. >> reporter: court documents revealing new details in the bizarre ordeal. intruders holding guns with red lasers woke up the couple as they slept. huskins and quinn telling authorities they were forced to wear swimming goggles with tape covered lenses and headsets that gave a prerecorded message with instructions. the kidnapper allegedly demanding two ransom payments of $8500. huskins put in the trunk of a
7:33 am
car, driven 400 miles away, finally released two days later near her mother's southern california home. the fbi saying among the evidence believed to be in muller's possession, goggles with long blond hair in it, the same color as huskins. >> it's a relief to hear that they have found suspects. >> reporter: muller wasn't that hard to find. he was already behind bars accused of breaking into a san francisco area home last month. but authorities now say there may be even more victims. >> we firmly believe there are other people involved. we want to see these people off the street. >> reporter: now investigators will not say whether they believe muller was behind a series of e-mails and letters sent to local newspapers that detailed the abduction here. the vallejo police who called this whole thing a hoax they are not talking either. directing all questions to the fbi.
7:34 am
>> okay cecilia, thanks very much. an exclusive interview with the attorneys for denise huskins and aaron quinn, they are douglas rappaport and daniel russo in san francisco this morning and mr. russo, let me begin with you. i can only imagine the relief your clients are feeling. >> well, it's hard -- it's actually -- it was such a surreal experience that i don't think, you know, it's like -- i don't think he's feeling any joy. i think he's feeling tremendous relief that finally the law enforcement authorities have kind of woken up to what really happened. and so certainly, he feels a strong validation for everything he's saying and to be honest, both myself and doug put ourselves out believing in our clients, which is what we're supposed to do. but, you know it's just -- like i say, it was surreal. it's been a horrible nightmare. and we are hoping that they can
7:35 am
start doing their job now, the police and actually i think both of us believe that there are other people out there who need to be -- >> you believe other people are involved, mr. rappaport, do you have any -- can you understand how the police got this so wrong? >> you know, that's an excellent question because it went wrong very early on when the huntington police started interviewing miss huskins and as soon as the questions turned to her and started looking like she might have been a suspect in this she had family member who just recently passed the bar, i mean within days who advised her to ask for counsel. and as soon as she asked for what is a constitutional right, the police -- the investigation turned 180 degrees and it was turned on her. >> how is she feeling now? >> well, obviously she feels a tremendous sense of relief but it doesn't change the fact that she can't feel safe in her own home. that she's lost her dignity. that she's been publicly shamed.
7:36 am
and now she needs to go through the court process as the victim of a very serious crime. so she is certainly not overjoyed in any sense of the word. but she is relieved that now at least she's believed. >> so, mr. russo, are you planning to take legal action on behalf of your clients against the police department? >> we -- we're at least i myself am a criminal lawyer and so we have referred them to other counsel. but we don't -- we really don't have an impact on that. our real concern is protecting them and making sure this process that's kind of chewed them up and spit them up does the least amount of damage to them so they really can get on with their lives and, you know get off the tabloids. and do what they both intend to do with their lives, which is you know they're medical professionals. and they want to get back to helping people. >> mr. rappaport, real quickly, you both said you believe others are involved. do you think your clients are
7:37 am
still at risk? >> i don't -- i have no idea whether they're at risk. i certainly hope that's a question to be better addressed to law enforcement. but at this juncture i don't think they were targeted specifically aside from just generally who they were. it wasn't because of -- it wasn't them in particular. so they're not in that sense fearful. i think the public should be fearful, though. >> yeah, i think, you know, one of the tragedies is that if the fbi had followed up and the vallejo police followed up on the initial -- they had some evidence of a phone call to a place where this character they arrested they found him. if they would have followed up those people in dublin who were subject to a home invasion robbery, it never would have happened. they would have taken this guy off the street, at least him. he would have been off the streets but they failed to do it and so more people were victimized. >> gentlemen, thanks very much for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you. to ginger with breaking weather news.
7:38 am
>> not only are there severe storms hitting but flash flood warnings in most of kentucky really central and eastern kentucky especially, west virginia, that line of storms has not only moved through but is bringing tons and tons of >> good morning, most of us are off to a cloudy start but tons of sunshine with 50s at the coast and 90s inland and full of 90s inland wednesday through friday and 70s at the coast. a chance ofgh >> all that weather brought to you by mcdonald's. this is round one, the same region, a lot of the same spots that got hit yesterday are going to get more severe weather, more flash flooding. so just because it's over for now doesn't mean it's not coming back this afternoon. >> it just keeps coming. >> yeah. >> ginger, thank you. so much more ahead. an abc news exclusive. a former college football player speaking out for the first time after he was caught on camera
