7:05 am
increased surveillance and investigations on perceived low-priority threats. rahim had been on joint terrific task force radar for several months but in recent weeks law enforcement began 24 hours a day surveillance on him. the fbi does not have unlimited resources to carry out around-the-clock surveillance on suspects but law enforcement sources say the bureau has hundreds of cases it is prioritizing that are similar to this one. gayle? >> thank you very much jeff. rahim's funeral is scheduled for later today. apparently two other people were discussing the plot with rahim. one is david wright, the other has not been charged or named. jim axelrod is at the federal courthouse in boston with how recorded phone calls led police to act. jim, good morning. >> reporter: law enforcement sources tell us the calls they recorded captured mr. wright saying "you're attempting to go

7:07 am
two hours after that 5:00 a.m. phone call, a hemo, a 26-year-old private security officer was confronted by a joint terrorism task force officer in boston. when one of the officers told him to drop his weapon, rahim replayedre replied "you drop yours." >> reporter: the boston police commissioner says the video of the shooting shows the two officers acted in self-defense. the city's muslim leaders were shown the video which has not been released. >> he was approaching them. they did back up. >> reporter: federal authorities say rahim's online alias shows he liked isis on facebook. the week before his fatal encounter with police rahim purchased three fighting knives on amazon.com. one of the weapons had a blaze more than nine inches long. rahim allegedly telling wright "i just got myself a nice it will -- little tool.
7:08 am

7:09 am
win again in iraq. we have to do more in syria and, indeed, we have to do more in other areas. >> as you know, there are people in the political world will say if the u.s. had left troops in iraq we would not be watching the rise of isis. >> well look i supported leaving troop ss as the president did if we could -- >> but wouldn't troops have led to impeding the rise of isis? >> it's arguable. i'd like to have tested the proposition but it's by no means certain. it would have given us better situational awareness, better infrastructure and a lot of other positive features but, again, no one can guarantee that.that that. >> petraeus says it's a significant setback for ramadi to fall and the u.s. may need to send advisors. a number of cases of mishandled anthrax has doubled. the pentagon says wednesday 51

7:11 am
the assistance jordan wallace after he changed his account of when savopoulos called to ask for the money. police revealed they looked al watt las' calls, text messages and cell phone locations beginning four days before the crime. they also physically seized his phone to examine his contacts notes, and photographs. >> if you're lying about something that seems inconsequential we believe there's a reason for that. >> reporter: former fbi deputy director ron hasko says police are looking for connection to daron wint the only suspect arrested so far. >> how long have they known each other? did they work there together? did they have prior interactions? this is dogged dedicated police work. >> reporter: other revelations say this was a forced entry, that police found a single broken window next to a door latch and a visible shoe or boot print on the house's side door. this reverses earlier theories
7:12 am
that wint, a rm toer erformer employee of savopoulos, may have been invited into the home. the documents reveal more details about the death of 10-year-old phillip savopoulos saying firefighters found only the charred remains of a juvenile so disfigured they were unable to determine the race or sex. police also disclosed that despite the family's extensive security system they're still searching for the digital video recorder that would have taped a portion of the crime. this is the first confirmation that footage from the surveillance cameras is missing. neighbors tell us that jordan wallace, the man who delivered the cash came later that day back here to the crime scene in time to witness the fire and told everyone who would listen "that is my boss' house." this would have been hours after he delivered the ransom money but hours before he told the police different versions of how that happened. wallace has not responded to our request for comment. charlie? >> wyatt, thanks.

7:14 am
another day, another drama. each new revelation is making the fbi's job easier to prove that fifa is corrupt to its core and probably all the way to the top and now the former vice president says he's got paperwork to prove who did what. >> hoping that the best defense is a good offense, jack warner went n the attack. he vowed to hand over an avalanche of evidence to investigators. >> i will also give them my knowledge of financial transactions of fifa including but not limited to fifa president sepp blatter. >> reporter: he said he fears for his life and accused fifa of meddling in his country's elections. warner himself is facing extradition to the united states for allegedly accepting a $10 million bribe. his claims followed court records released yesterday in which u.s. fifa exec chuck blazer admitted that he agreed
7:15 am
with other persons in or around 1992 to facilitate the acceptance of a bribe in conjunction with the selection of the host nation for the 1998 world cup. that was held in france and said that he and other fifa executives took bribes over the selection of south africa in 2010. it turns out, blazer has been the fbi's mole and used a wiretap inside a key to be to record conversations with fifa execs. and that revelation itself is bound to unravel the rest of fifa says sports columnist in ss columnist ins. >> this is widespread across the globe across every member nation has some kind of hand in this. >> reporter: what now? russia's sports minister repeat there had's no risk of losing the 2018 world cup. the one after that in qatar may be another story since the united states came runner up in that one.

8:34 am
immediately. here in the u.s. it temds to be businesses that make complaints about competitors and it takes a longer period of time. >> why do you think this story is important in terms of advertising, the ability to complain about it? >> you know in the uk it says that they are saying this isn't going to stand. they take a stand against ads that are harmless or misleading or deceptive. >> and we allow the mark and social media to make those decisions. >> right. here in the u.s. it's if the consumers complain. >> on times square right now there's a bill bod up that was banned in the uk but it's allowed to be displayed here. brother teen world. >> it'll will be interesting to see if this turns out. this was such a huge issue in the uk. people complained so much aspects were banned in the uk and the head of the company said

8:37 am
