>> good morning. thank you so much for joining us. >> i am heather childers>> i am heather nauert. it is tuesday may 1st. thank you for watching "fox & friends first". >> it marks the one year time period since the navy seal raid killed osama bin laden. >> we are in islamabad where the most wanted terrorist was captured and killed. dominic? >> sfz exactly 2:30 in the afternoon new york time when two navy seals landed in this site and killed osama bin laden. the site looking different than
what it looked like a year ago. you would have seen a 3 story building which osama bin laden would have lived. it was knocked down by the pakistani authorities who want to obliterate any memory of osama bin laden being here. a local contractor bought it for 30 bucks per a thousand. that's the only memory you will find of bin laden if pakistan had its own way. >> what do we know about the time bin laden lived there? >> well, he was at this particular house for five years in the country for nine. we are hearing from the only effective independent investigation in bin laden that he was retireed by al qaeda as early as 2003. they found him to be a liability t cutting off al qaeda sources it
would be hard to keep him there. al qaeda effectively sold him out to the cia. that's how ultimately he was allowed to become vulnerable and eventually fond. looks like he was let down by absolutely everybody including his family>> pakistan was embarrassed a year ago. are the pakistani still trying to pretend it never in fact happened? >> to some extent. we have pakistani spy agency who tried to prevent us were being live on the site today. they got rid of the family a couple days ago trying to ghement out before the anniversary. just removing his house trying to put it effectively behind them. but ultimately pakistan will always be embarrassed by the fact that the world's most wanted terrorist was hiding on
its soil for up to nine years. >> live from abbott bad, pakistan. >> to hear the kids playing in the background. more on that in about an hour. it is fodder on the campaign trail. kelly wright is in washington for us this morning. >> good morning to you. the sparring between bin laden and president obama and mitt romney. it could be a tough election battle. duri president obama pushed back on charges he is politicizing osama bin laden's death. the president taking aim at his remarks presumably toward mitt romney for appearing to flip flop on whether he would have taken out the terrorist. >> as far as my personal role n
and what other folks would do, i just recommend that everybody take a look at people's previous statements in terms of whether they thought it was appropriate to go into pakistan and take out bin laden. i assume that people meant what they said when they said it. >> on the campaign trail romney fought back and said he would have ordered the hit even jimmy carter would have. >> would you have gone after bin laden? >> of course. >> you would have given the order, governor? >> is the criticism from the obama campaign not fair? >> all of this stemming from a campaign ad that was made for the president talking about the bin laden raid and the subsequent death of bin laden. senator john mccain weighed in
on the fray as well telling bill o'reilly any president would have ordered the action against bin laden. mccain added, real heros, they don't brag. >> kel me wright in washington. thank you so much. time to look at who else is talking. >> this morning of course the death of osama bin laden is the big talk. president obama spoke about the mood instiide the situation roo at the moment this picture was taken. let's listen here. >> it's not a slam dunk yet. >> it is not a slam dunk. at this point all of us understand we are a long way to go before the night is done. and i have said this was the longest 40 minutes of my life. >> to coin a phrase all you know is you have a "black hawk down", it's in the courtyard. it turns out to have been superbly piloted by a pilot who knew to nose it into the dirt to
kill the torque of the landing and cushion everyone on board. >> right. >> i will tell you when i saw that pilot, i gave him a pretty big hug. >> jose rodriguez he is the former cia agent who is talking about the programs used after 911. >> the programs helped lead united states to bin laden. here he is last night on "hannity". >> we got a lot of information from the detainees that eventually led us to bin laden. >> that's a fact. >> that is a fact. >> you were there and you know you watch this had unfold. >> there is still doubt out there, people are doubting the amounts of information we got from this program that gave us the basis to go after our man and destroy al qaeda.
it is just amazing. and make sure that you tune into fox and friends at 6:30 to hear more from jose rodriguez. he will be joining us life with details. he is a fascinating interview. >> time for the 5 at 5:00. the u.s. military is under reporting the number of times that afghan soldiers or police open fire on american troops overseas. the military does report when they are killed by an afghan but we just learned the military is not saying when they are wounded or avoid being hit. they also aren't reporting when troops are wounded next to other soldiers who are killed. there has been a drastic rise recently in afghan troops attacking american soldiers. >> we are learning trach new details about the bronx highway where an suv drove off the overpass killing all 7 family
members inside the car. officials have dragged their feet for decades or fixing it. just last year it was identified by new york as one of the most dangerous roads. despite several terrible accidents and documents calling for urgent reteapairs the city the state failed to act. the family got some help. a city cabbie donated 1,000 dollars to cover some of the funeral's costs. they could disrupt the morning commute as activists rally on what some consider international worker's day. in new york city alone thousands are expected to swarm the streets making a mess of the morning commute. police keeping an eye on the on the occupy wall street crowd 6 wells far go banks and city owned office building. all of those samples tested negative for hazardous materials. one of the envelopes addressed to the mayor mike bloomberg.

the rubber soles on the sneakers of her shoes protected her from the shock. now it is time to have a great weather update from maria molina. you can expect travel delays as rain enters the region. >> good to see you. we can expect lightening across parts of northeast even into the portions of the central planes. we are going to have a lot of activity. showers early this morning across the northeast. really a muggy start for you guys. plan to see a slow morning commute for you guys. heavy rain across parts of florida that has 1-2 inches of rain local lie higher amounts. we are getting reports of flash flooding over the past two-days because we have had a lirnging fro -- lingering frontal system. more severe weather will be possible along portions in the
