7:05 am
house, practiced shooting and provided the guns used in the attack. an fbi agent testified kareem also considered some kind of attack on the 2015 super bowl in phoenix, but there is no suggestion it got beyond the talking stage. one prosecutor called him off the charts dangerous. kareem's lawyer say it is fbi's case is based on a source he described as a typical jailhouse snitch. in a separate case a new york area college student has been arrested accused of planning attacks there. the 20-year-old was twice found walking on the george washington bridge. authorities say he was acquiring frvegs on how to build a bomb. in both cases the fbi said the menner were inspired by isis social media. >> pete williams in washington. thanks as always. now to the search for the two es capeded convicts from upstate new york. the husband of the prison employee accused of helping them break out of jail meets with

7:12 am
sound like somethinger more me the fars-- nefarious. >> it could be either. the key is going to be how high up does it go in if it goes near the top of the cardinals pyramid it 's a blow to st. louis's sense of itself. the card falls are viewed as not just a successful team but a model franchise. >> you take it out of baseball and take it to a city. why should a nonbaseball, nonsports fan care about this story? >> in theory if there is a motivation to do this if sports then there is a motivation for another network to do it to nbc, for any competitor to do it to his or her competitors. information is extremely valuable now. there is hoetmotivation here. who acted on it is important. >> we'll talk about something
