captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." we have new information about the intentions of a terror suspect shot and killed monday by police in boston. usaama rahim allegedly wanted to attack police officers but sources tell cbs news his original target may have been the yoet spoken critic of islam, pamela gellar. >> jeff pegues is in washington with more on the threat and gellar's response. jeff, good morning. >> good morning. law enforcement sources are still unclear how serious the plot against gellar was and how much of it was talk. what is clear is gellar's support of cartoon depictions of prophet muhammad has provoked islamic radicals and made her a target. cbs news has learned that usaama rahim had planned to carry out an isis-style beh heading.
7:04 am
>> i'm the number one target for isis right now. >> reporter: on may 3rd gellar organized the prophet muhammad drawing contest in texas where police fatally shot two men who opened fire outside the event. last night gellar told "cbs this morning" she has increased her security but has yet to discuss the threat with the fbi. >> it won't end with me or the cops. the one thing that came out of garland is that isis is here. islamic terrorism is here on the home soil on a weekly sometimes daily basis. >> reporter: court documents say rahim told his acome employ david wright about a plan to kill a person outside of massachusetts. in coded language rahim told wright something like thinking with your head on your chest, an apparent reference to beheadings carried out by isis. in the days following the
7:05 am
attack, the fbi carried out surveillance. rahim had been on joint task's radar for several months but than began 24-hour surveillance on him. the fbi does not have limited resources to carry out round-the-clock surveillance on suspects but they say they have hundreds of cases it is prioritizing like this one. >> thank you very much jeff. rahim's funeral is scheduled for today. he discussed the terror plot with two other people. one is david wright who the police have arrested hours after rahim was shot. the other has not been charged or named. jim axelrod is in boston with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the phone calls captured mr. wright saying you're attempting
7:06 am
to go on vacation i see, which sources tell us is code for committing jihad. they also tell us wright instructed rahim to both destroy his cell phone and wipe his computer clean in advance of his confrontation with boston police. federal conspiracy charges were drawn up for david wright after he had an urgent conversation with usaama rahim about an imminent isis-style beh heading plot. he phoned wright says he was going to go after the boys in blue allegedly calling them the easiest target. law enforcement believes it was a reference to police officers. in turn they heard wright directing rahim to erase his digital trail. the affidavit says wright told rahim at the moment you decide to delete the phone or break it apart, throw it on the ground. get rid of it before anybody
7:07 am
gets it and dump it. two hours after that 5:00 a.m. phone call rahim, a private security officer was confronted by two officers. he was told to drop his weapon. rahim replied, you drop yours. boston police commissioner william evans says surveillance video of tuesday's shooting shows the two officers acted in self-defense. the video was shown to others. 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 blade more than 9 inches tall. he told wright i got myself a nice little tool. you know it's good for carving.
7:08 am
federal officials say on sunday rahim and wright met on a road island beach with an unidentified third person who has not been arrested or charged. federal investigators are still looking into whether the plot included more than just the three people we know about. charlie? >> jim thanks. this morning the supreme leader of iran is accusing the united states and ids f israel of supporting isis. the group is called eded un-islamic. this morning general david petraeus says thelosing. i sat down with the former director. are we winning or losing at this moment? >> well these are fights where if you're not winning you're probably losing because time is not on your side. >> and we are not winning. >> well it's arguable in iraq. we'll turn it around.
7:09 am
we will win it again in iraq. we've got to do a lot more in syria and other areas. >> as you know there are people in the political world who will say if the u.s. had left troops in iraq we would not be wanting to rise of isis. >> well, look. i supported leaving troops. >> would it have led to impeding the rise of isis? >> it's arguable. i'd like to have tested the proposition, but it is by no means certain. it certainly would have given us better situational awareness, better infrastructure for what we're doing now and a lot of positive features but again, no one can impede that. >> he said the united states may need to send more advisers to help iraq's military. >> this morning the number of cases of mishandled anthrax has more than doubled. the pentagon said wednesday at least 51 laboratories in 17

7:11 am
after he changed his account of when sashavopoulos first called to ask for the money. police then looked at his calls, cell phone locations and other9i things four days before the crime. they also seized his phone to gather contacts phone calls, and photos. former fbi director says police are looking for any connection to to dareon wint. police say it was a forced entry. police found a single broken window next to a door shooft and a visible shoe or boot print on the side of the door.
7:12 am
this reverses the thought that he may have been invite goodd into the home. the charge remain of a juvenile so disfigured they were unable to determine the race or the sex. police also disclosed 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 that delivered the cash came later that day back here to the crime scene. he came back here in time to witness the fire and told everyone who would listen that is my boss's 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. charliesome.

8:22 am
involved. over the course of the last decade while wages have been stagnant is a problem and all the ceos i talk to recognize that. they know it's a big problem and they're trying to think of creative ways to deal with it without undercutting their profits obviously. >> this obviously as norah suggested was ranking by revenues. >> yes. >> what's interesting to me is sam walton died as a relatively young man. he would be hugely wealthy today. probably the richest man by far in his world wouldn't he? >> yeah. his descendants are doing oklahoma. >> $150 billion or something. >> what's interesting is walmart has had a tough patch in the past few years. sales have not increased rapidly but it's so big that on this list of revenues it really dominates the top. >> what about apple? >> apple is the one that's really coming on. if we ranked the companies by profit or if we ranked them by their market value, apple would

be number one. it's valued at $700 million. the first company ever -- thank you for correcting me. first i it's really -- that's really an amazing story. >> and they have a lot of cash on hand don't they? >> a lot of cash on hand yeah. >> facebook jumped nearly 100 spots. >> that's right. it came in at 342. again, if you ranked them by market value, facebook would be number ten. they see a lot of potential for it to continue to grow. >> and on the subject of tough companies you were saying this before. whether it's cloud computing or anything else you say it's an industrial revolution. >> i think there's something big going on. if you look at the technology cloud computing, mobile commuting, what people call the internet of things, putting sensors on everything that goes on in the company and collecting

8:33 am
complaint. >> yes. >> what's the appeal of this kind of add? >> good question. >> what's the appeal of this kind of ad. it certainly is aspirational for a certain group of people and it's aspirational for the brand and the magazine that published it. certainly there were a lot of people that didn't agree and the standards board didn't agree and they decided to ban it. >> here's one of the points here. in the uk one person can complain anonymously and they can decide to pull it. it's much different here in the state. >> it is very different. it operates much differently. in the uk one consumer can make a complaint and get that almost 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
8:34 am

billion. >> put it into full afterburner. there you go. pull back on the stick nice and easy. there you go. and you're flying. >> wow. >> reporter: he's one of a handful of pilots to have flown the f-35 and he is skilled in training the uninitiated in the plane's simulator. >> hello, f-35. how are you. >> this is a very good simulator. very much like flying a real aircraft. >> with more than 8 1/2 million lines of software code, the f-35 has been called a flying computer. the jet is designed for both air-to-ground combat and air-to-air combat. >> there are two aircraft right there 80 miles off your nautical nose. this is exactly the way an f-16 would work. i would have to know they were roughly in that location, poichblt my radar there and get my position and lock them up.
8:37 am
>> you would have had to have done that manually? >> do it manually. right now they're ready. >> are they locked in on me? >> no, they're not because you're stealth. that's the other capability. you can go off the screen. >> can i play with this for a moment? >> sure. full left or full right on the stick anyway you want. >> look at that. >> you can go faster. >> wow. >> try the -- >> have you ever done that in a plane? >> yep certainly. no one's watching. >> for all the fun of the simulator, it's without its problems. design issues like tires that wear out too quickly and wing tip lights that fail to meet faa
8:38 am
standards helped the project fall seven years behind schedule and nearly $163 billion over budget. >> why does the military need this plane? >> because the capability gap is closing. >> general mark welsh is the air force cheech of staff. >> without this earn the technology it bring, there is the potential for other countries to pass us in that capability arena. >> why has it had so many problems? >> charlie, the development of any new piece of ee kwirjts especially one this high tech is going to be difficult. we've flown over 20,000 hours with this airplane. it's not a power point. it's a rail capability. >> how long has it taken? >> the program started 18 to 20 years ago. >> 20 years, but the plane is not operational. >> yes, sir, but the plane was not operational before this. it will go of racing at. the air force will be
