[ people screaming ] hmm... oh, one small black cocoa creme iced coffee, please -- yum. woman: will that be all? [ brakes squeal ] uh-oh! not good. let me out of here! let me out of here! try dunkin's new black cocoa creme iced coffee and call star-star-d-d for a text to capture your alien today. the galaxy runs on dunkin'. this is fox 5 news at 7:00. fox 5 is following two developing stories tonight. al-qaeda release nude video of a kidnapped maryland man -- released new video of a kidnapped maryland man in pakistan, but we begin with another foiled terror plot. good evening. i'm brian bolter. >> i'm shawn yancey.
10:01 pm
the cia stop an attempt to blow up a u.s. airliner with a confiscated designed underwear bomb. >> the foiled plan was set to mark the anniversary of the killing of osama bin laden. >> this was a very ambitious plan by al-qaeda's affiliate in yemen. the operation to stop it is a victory for u.s. intelligence but is also a grim reminder of al-qaeda's ambitions. the cia thwarted the plan which involved an upgrade of the underwear bomb that failed to detonate aboard a jetliner over detroit on christmas, 2009. very little is being released because this is an ongoing operation. the fbi did issue this statement about the explosive. initial exploitation indicates that the device is very similar to ieds that have been used previously by al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula in attempted terrorist attacks including against aircraft and for targeted assassinations. what has u.s. intelligence
10:02 pm
officials concerned is how terrorists are stepping up the sophistication of their explosives. this device did not contain metal which means it may have been able to pass through an airport metal detector. this one was also to be used in a passenger's underwear, but this time with a refined detonation system. officials say this would be suicide bomber based in yemen had not yet picked a target or bought a plane ticket which the cia seized the bomb. defense secretary and former cia chief leon panetta warns the potential threats by al- qaeda and other terrorist groups. >> what this incident makes clear is that this country has to continue to remain vigilant against those that would seek to attack this country and we will do everything necessary to keep america safe. >> reporter: the white house says president obama was told about the plot in april and was assured the device posed no threat to the public. c chairman of the house homeland
10:03 pm
security committee, says experts are now analyzing and testing the bomb. >> you see exactly what it consists of, what the danger is from it and what threat it would pose, can be it detected, how is it similar to, how does it vary from previous devices. so this is definitely significant. it's serious but americans were never at risk. >> joining us now with a little more perspective is steven emerson, the executive director of the investigative project on terrorism. thanks for being with us tonight. what more do you know about this incident? >> as your reporter noted, the government is keeping a close hold on this because the investigation is still going on. i can tell you one that, suspect is in u.s. hands, two, he is an american passport holder and three, that the detonation device wasn't the problem. the problem was or the ingenious nature of what the terrorists were trying to do was to devise a new explosive
10:04 pm
material that was undetectable by regular scanning devices. right now when you go through an airport scanning device, it will pick up plastic or syntex. this type of new molecular type of variation of petn, very, very explosive plastic explosive material was devised apparently by people in the arabian peninsula belonging to al-qaeda or perhaps other scientists, but whatever the case is they stepped up their technological findings to actually beat the system, beat our radar detector systems at airports. that's a real worry because they're always going to be one step ahead. i suspect we're going to be changing the nature of some of the detection systems and the technology at airports around the world. >> but at this point there are no immediate plans according to u.s. officials to change security at our airports.
10:05 pm
how soon do you think that could change? >> first of all, i don't think they'll announce changes immediately. they're going to be tight lipped about what they do because they're not going to want to in form terrorists 'no. 2, they're still testing the actual compound, about the i'm holding here a copy of inspire magazine. it's in black and white. it's an english language magazine put out by al-qaeda and at rainian peninsula formerly by the late -- the arabian peninsula formerly by the late anwar al-awlaki and it talks about how to penetrate and beat the system of using different variations and molecular compounds of petn so that it doesn't get detected as it almost was detected in the famous underwear plot in 2009. so they're actually -- they're three years ahead of us in discussing ways of increasing their technology to avoid detection and they're doing this all the time. look, the whole system for them is how to beat us at the first level, okay? we're always fighting the last
10:06 pm
war. at this point our intelligence was great. it came from a variety of sources. the person who is in now u.s. custody may have been a mule. he had an american passport. the report was he was going to buy his ticket in cash at a counter. that's a red flag for anybody who buys a ticket. so thank god the u.s. picked it up ahead of time and they are definitely testing the compound to see whether a new system of let's say detection systems are needed around the world. >> certainly it's our job to stay one step ahead of the terrorists, too. we'll be learning more about in in the coming days, thanks for -- about this in the coming days. thanks for being with us tonight. now another developing story, word from the white house the obama administration will not negotiate with al- qaeda to secure the freedom of a rockville man. a video released this weekend shows 70-year-old warren weinstein pleading with the president to save his life. weinstein was kidnapped nine months ago in pakistan. fox 5's karen gray houston has the latest now.

10:49 pm
a southerly component. we got up to 73 degrees and that is actually average for this time of year. i think we'll be warmer than that tomorrow. here's a look at the next three days. we'll have 77 degrees tomorrow, but chance for showers or storms tomorrow afternoon. it will take a while to get here. it will be one of those days where it looks like it wants to rain but it doesn't for a while, might get in here after 3:00. wednesday showers could linger because this front is so slow that's coming it's going to take two days to clear out, but it will clear out and beginning thursday the skies really brighten up. temperatures are comfortable and we may be able to keep high pressure in place right through the weekend which means the end of this week could be spectacular. meanwhile 64 degrees now, so not cold. the clouds are keeping us socked in, but again that southeast wind, you definitely feel that moisture on your body. 69 degrees at quantico, annapolis coming in at 65 degrees. as we look at satellite and radar, yes, there have been a lot of clouds but not much
10:50 pm
moisture, perhaps a sprinkle here and there. we did have more activity out to our west, but that has not been moving this direction. it's actually kind of parallel to the frontal system which you can really see here and we have had a line of showers and storms from western pennsylvania down through ohio all the way into cincinnati, but these are moving very slowly. this is what we expect to try to get in here tomorrow, but it's going take quite a while. typically when we see activity as close as western pennsylvania, it's just a matter of hours before it gets to d.c., but this is going to take a little bit longer. that's because this front which is pretty much in this position now is taking a while to move. there is a lot of wind parallel to it. so what we get is a slow moving front that should squeeze out some showers ands to remember tone afternoon, but it also kind of -- showers and storms tomorrow afternoon, but it also kind of keeps us socked in from the sunshine. i don't think we're talking about thunderstorms wednesday, but showers will probably linger a part of the day.
