tamerlan tsarnaev, prior to the attack. communication or lack thereof was at the center of testimony at hearings thursday on capitol hill. >> we have three detectives and a sergeant who are assigned to the joint terrorism task force. one of my detectives is actually in the squad that investigated that. we have access to all the databases, but we were not, in fact, informed of that particular development. >> commissioner davis acknowledged that police might not have uncovered or disrupted the plot even if they had fully investigated the family of tamerlan tsarnaev based on those warnings. we are one step closer to justice for the suspected shooter, who you see here, in the ft. hood massacre. a military judge to delay major nidal hasan's court-martial to september 1st. his lawyers claimed jurors might be influenced by the media coverage of the boston bombings. jury selection will still begin on may 30th. testimony will start july 1st.

access to those conversations and that they have the right to learn more about the administration's early public comments that the assault was a result of spontaneous demonstrations. >> she had told the libyan ambassador that the attack was conducted by islamic terrorists. the state department would not allow our committees to keep copies of this e-mail when it was reviewed, and i would call on the president to order the state department to release this e-mail so that the american people can see it. >> now, in response, the state department is agreeing to work with speaker boehner and other lawmakers on capitol hill, even though administration officials say they didn't feel anything new was released during the six-hour congressional hearing on wednesday. >> some of these issues were sort of high up by some, whether it's in the media or on capitol hill, as new information, but we see that we had a thorough and credible arb investigation. they told some stories that
were, again, very personal about their experiences. but in terms of adding new information about what occurred, that's not what we saw transpire. >> reporter: now, a blast from administration's past also appearing yesterday. former vice president dick cheney was on the hill speaking with house republicans, telling them, just like south carolina senator lindsey graham, he thinks then secretary of state hillary clinton should be "subpoenaed," if necessary, for more information. ainsley, back to you. >> fascinating. we're dying to see what is in those e-mails. thanks so much, elizabeth prann live for us in washington. patti ann? for more headlines now, the search continues for two passengers who fell overboard from a carnival cruise ship. surveillance video shows the couple falling off the ship wednesday night before it docked in sydney. the australian couple has been identified as 30-year-old paul rothington and 27-year-old kristen schroeder. it is not clear, though, from the video if they fell by accident or jumped. it sounds like the plot of a movie. a $45 million cyber heist hit
