7:02 am
from somebody speaking english. caroline kennedy, daughter of jfk, assumed the post in 2013. she is obviously a very high profile figure over there. and with the violent attack on another u.s. ambassador this month, police are investigating just how serious this threat might be. all seemed normal with ambassador caroline kennedy today. she gave a lecture in tokyo. the associated press reports japanese police are investigating death threats against her. japanese media say the calls were made to the u.s. embassy and came from somebody speaking english. they are looking into the possibility the person might be trying to blackmail tl 57-year-old mother and diplomat. the u.s. embassy did not have a comment but threats like this against u.s. politicians and diplomats are not uncommon. >> i'm bleeding. >> the reports come on the heels of the attack on u.s. ambassador mark lippert in south korea
7:03 am
earlier this month. a kreen national testified he knifed lippert because of his symbolic representation of the united states. kennedy has been the ambassador to japan for just over a year. the associated press reports tlorts believe the threats made to her are similar to ones targeting the u.s. concull general in okinawa home to 50,000 u.s. troops. michelle obama who landed in tokyo this the morning. the first lady is kick off her educational tour promoting schooling for girls. other than the suspected blackmailing no other motive is known. any one who follows international and domestic policies knows that unfortunately these threats are not uncommon, but matt and savannah, given the attack on mark lippert who we should say was okay, these threats potential growing anti-americanism are looked at closely. >> government's full attention. katy tur, thank you.

forced netanyahu to moderate his assistances he has a clear sailing to form a government. what does that mean. in the closing days of the campaign he came out against the creation of a palestinian state. the celebration last night was raucous in his headquarters even before the votes were counted. they know what this means. he is against a palestinian state, a clear reversal of decades of israeli commitments to the u.s. including netanyahu's own commitment to president obama. this also means that the relationship with the president, president obama, is going to be more poisonous because on election day netanyahu appealed to his voters to come out saying that the arab israelis were coming out and said that foreign money from the u.s., from the state department, was financing his opposition, that's only going to make it even harder to get along with president obama. it also vindicates republican congressional leaders inviting him to congress. this is going to be a big issue

7:09 am
>> reporter: some legal experts believe the prosecution has their work cut out for them. >> we've got to see all of the evidence, see how it connects, what significance to give certain pieces of evidence and what insignificance to give others. this a long way from resolution. >> reporter: one of susan's friends says she believes that durst may be responsible for his own undoing. >> i do believe that bobby is a very smart manipulative human. i don't know that he has outsmarted things. he might have been bitten by his own bite. >> reporter: durst was never charged in the disappearance of his wife and acquitted in the murder of his neighbor. his lawyers say they are eager to defend his innocence in california, but they are stuck right now in new orleans. >> thanks so much. >> natalie is on assignment and then we've got tamron here with a surprising story behind a terror arrest.

7:11 am
court records claim pugh's lap top was packed with nearly 200 propaganda videos and those disturbing videos of isis mass executions. >> even after having discharged so many years ago this is someone who they really want to put in front of a camera, someone they want to put out there and declare his loyalty to isis. >> reporter: born and raised in the u.s. pugh was an airplane mechanic from 1986-1990. to new york congressman peter king, that makes the alleged crime all the worse. >> also all the more disconcerting when you find out that if these charges are true that you have a person who is in the military ends up being a traitor to his country. >> reporter: on his lap tops they found a letter which pugh says there are two only outcomes for me, victory or martyr. he obviously never considered the third outcome, custody in the u.s. >> thank you very much, jim.

10:35 am
me, when i had a blood clot in my leg that could have traveled to my lungs. that's why i took xarelto®, too. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. i took xarelto® for afib... an irregul that can lead to a stroke from a blood clot. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding
10:36 am
if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost. i get out of work, and i go to the store, and somebody says, smellin' around, "i smell cookies." i said, "oh no you just smell me, i just got out of work that's honey bunches of oats, that's all." i said "don't eat me now."
