7:04 am
clarissa ward is in baghdad where violence is on the rise. clarissa, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. islamic militants have been pounding that refinery in beijing all morning with mortars. if they do successfully take it over, we'll be looking at massive power outages and long lines for gas, a country already in chaos. militants continue their bloody campaign in baghdad, hitting a bloody market in a she yeet stronghold kill 1g 2. a powerful explosion took place here, this resident said. i have never seen such a horrific blast before. the streets of baghdad are full of security forces as fighters with the al qaeda splinter group isis threatened the capital. and thousands of shiites have volunteered to join sectarian militias. rallies like this are now a daily occurrence.
7:05 am
these fighters told us they consider it a sacred duty to defend their city. general saad mahn is a spokesman for the interior ministry, a department for iraq's internal security. >> passages are clear. >> reporter: he denies iraq is in the middle of a sectarian civil war and that volunteering for the armies is a dangerous ideas. >> reporter: it reignites -- >> we don't have militias. >> reporter: you do. i've seen them. >> no. [ speaking foreign language ] >> we must liberate iraq. iraq for sunni and for shiites. >> reporter: many fear that that new wave of sectarian killings has already begun last night in a government controlled police station in baquba.
7:06 am
the bodies of 44 prisoners were found. all of them had gunshots to their chest or head. >> clarissa ward, thank you. please be careful. u.s. intelligence are questioning a man accused of plotting the attack on the american consulate in libya. he's the first person arrested in connection with the assault 21 years ago. >> the suspect will be bruit to this country and put on public trial. bob orr is in washington where officials say the arrest was in the works for a year. bob, good morning. >> good morning. well, right after the benghazi attacks in september 2012, ahmed abu khatalla openly met with reporters saying if i'm a suspect, come and get me. well, sunday night, u.s. special operations forces did just that. u.s. officials believe this is a photo of ahmed abu khatalla, one
7:07 am
who officials say helped orchestrate the attack on the consulate in benghazi. after the fbi agents silently converge odden the home and quickly captured khatalla without firing a shot. no one was hurt. >> it's important to send a message to the world that when messages are attacked, no matter how long it takes, we will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice. >> khatalla is now aboard a u.s. navy ship on the mediterranean where he's being interrogated by a special intelligence team. khatalla's capture was not made public until tuesday to preserve the integrity of the criminal case against him. >> we had to also make sure that those involved, that their security and safety was looked after as well. >> khatalla, believed to be a senior leader of the radical
7:08 am
group was federally charged last july for his alleged role in the attacks which killed four americans, ambassador christopher stevens, state department official shaun smith and security contractors tyrone woods and dougherty. >> it was a very difficult situation. they need to know that this country has their back and will always go after anybody who goes after us. >> law enforcement says others have also been charged in the case, but the details remain sealed. 21 months after the u.s. consulate was overrun, only khatalla is in custody. now, senior administration officials say khatalla was often surrounded in recent months by militia, so they were waiting for a time when his defenses might be down to make their move. now, once the intelligence interrogation at sea is done,
7:09 am
he'll be turned over to federal prosecutors. he could face the death penalty if convicted. charlie? >> thanks. senior security analyst mike morell who was then deputy director during the benghazi attack, good morning. >> good morning. >> what was significant about this arrest and what might we learn from him? >> i think the president's point about nobody gets way with killing americans no matter how long it takes to find them is the most significant. it sends a message to anybody who might do this that we'll find you. that is the most significant. in terms of intelligence, i think there's three things that we want to learn. one is we want to find out whether there is a plot for any additional attacks right now. i think that's the first line of questioning for him. the second line of questioning is who else was involved in the benghazi attack and where are they. and then the third line of questioning, we'll try to get at some of those unanswered benghazi questions.
7:10 am
what motivated these guys, how much planning, how much organization was there. i think those are the three lines of questioning he'll be going through. >> was there suspicion that he was, in fact, the mastermind of this? >> the suspicion was that he was one of the leaders, not that he was the mastermind. but, you know, there's a lot about this we don't know. so he could turn out to be more significant. but right now it's felt that he was one of the leaders, not the leader. >> how confident are you, mike, that the u.s. will get the information they need. what if he says, look, i'm not talking, i have nothing to say. >> you don't know. i don't know what's going on right now, but the fbi is pretty good at developing a rapport with these guys and getting information from them. so i think the more -- the longer he spends at sea, the less he's talking. the faster he gets to washington and gets charged, the more he
7:11 am
has talked. i think that will be the signal. >> let me turn to iraq. you said to me last night this is the worst situation since the 1973 war. why is it that serious when we look at the increasing sectarian conflict reported by clarissa ward and others. it's getting to be a very bloody battle. >> i think it's the most dangerous because we are at risk of losing iraq. iraq is at risk of breaking into three pieces. and one of those pieces, if this happens, will be an al qaeda safe haven from which they will conduct attacks against the united states of america and against western europe. the other reason it is -- such breakup would be so bad, charlie, there would be a risk to a spillover to the rest of the region in terms of drawing the lines as well. >> i want to get this for sure. what does the united states do? what is necessary for the united
7:12 am
states to do in terms of equipment and men on the ground? >> so the best outcome here, charlie, the best outcome here as we talked about last night is a diplomatic solution where you bring all the sides together and you form a new government without maliki, a new government for all iraqis. that takes an awful lot of pressure on all the sides, and i think it takes some u.s. military support on the ground which will give us more credibility in that diplomatic argument. and i think that is u.s. special forces on the ground advising and assisting. i think that it's intelligence support. those are the two keys, i think. >> all right, mike. you say congress should support the president's request today if he makes it. >> think so. >> all right. thank you, mike morell, for joining us this morning. tens of millions from the upper midwest to the northeast are under the threat of severe storms this morning. they could bring tornados. part of nebraska is dealing with
7:13 am
more. one touched down yesterday just north of where a pair of tornadoes killed two people monday in pilger. up to 150 homes were destroyed there. in the southwest strong winds are spreading a wild fooifrmt meteorologist megan glaros of our affiliate station wbbm is tracking this morning's severe weather. >> good morning to you. more than 65 million people are at risk for severe weather today. it extends from the canadian boarder to the mexican border and all the way off to the east coast. we're looking at the potential for damaging winds and for large hail. those are the primary risks. 95 in charlotte but add hue mimtd to that and the feels like temp and heat index values could

7:15 am
products. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. consensus is he's hyping weight loss products on his show based on shoddy science, this industry that caters to gullible americans who are desperate to lose weight. >> do you believe there's a magic weight loss cure out there? >> reporter: senators questioned the celebrity doctor for nearly two hours wednesday. >> i know you feel you're a vick item, but sometimes conduct inviolots being a victim, and i think if you would be more careful, maybe you wouldn't be victimized quite as frequently. >> reporter: they criticized the talk show host for prescribing weight loss products as magical. >> i want you to write it down. because it may be the simple solution you've been looking for to bust your body fat for good. >> reporter: dr. oz says he stopped using those over the top
7:16 am
terms. >> i used words that were flowery and passionate and were not helpful but incendiary and provided fodder for unscrupulous advertisers. i have not been talking about products in that way for two years and it has not changed at all what i'm seeing on the internet, and frankly it's getting worse. >> reporter: but committee chair claire mccaskill pointed to more recent offenses showing he hasn't changed his way. >> in january you called it -- >> a miracle neriracle in a bot. >> if you think all of a sudden i can take a pill and still have a kielbasa, well, that's not the right knowledge and that's not what i contend to convey but it can be construe thad way if you don't watch the entire segment. i'm learning that's exactly what
7:17 am
hucksters do. >> beyond embarrassing to dr. oz, there's very little congress can do. it's the federal trade commission tees job to go after online scams and even they, gayle, can only scratch the surface. >> all right. thank you, nancy. in brazil team usa is still flying high this morning after monday's world cup win and a growing number of fans are along for the ride. nearly 16 million americans watched on tv as the u.s. beat ghana. that number does not include everybody who's watching at work, in the bar, or at outdoor events. elaine quijano is in rio de janeiro where thousands of traveling americans are, as they say, elaine, loud and proud. good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. americans outside of brazil, americans are the largest buyer of tickets if this year's world cup. nearly 200,000 seats.
7:18 am
enthusiasm and pride for team usa is swelling after their stirring world cup victory on monday night over ghana. >> it was just an incredible feeli feeling, the support we had from the fans in the stadium along with fans in every corner of the country. we felt that. >> reporter: when the americans took back the lead later in the game, twitter in the u.s. exploded. >> you look at, you know, your instagram twitter and you see the videos, the appeals posted, the reactions at the bars, pubs, it's awesome. we're part of that movement, growing soccer in the states. it's really cool. >> reporter: even vice president joe biden made his way to the locker room after the game to speak with the players and show his support. >> are you kidding me? this is a kick, man. >> reporter: they were back on the field for practice. the head coach who once downplayed his young team's

8:16 am
against her will and the answer is unequivocally no. she's the mother of three boys. her first two were delivered by caesarean section which involved difficult recoveries. so in 2011 she was determined to have josef naturally. it carries risks but often can be performed successfully but after several hours of labor her doctor pushed back. >> he said i don't have all day for you. >> reporter: she said she felt her doctor was being impatient as he continued to press her to have a c-section right away warning her her uterus would rupture and her baby would be put at risk. >> i was begging all the way, don't feel it. i feel my baby, every evething' fine, don't do it.
8:17 am
his answer was just don't speak. >> ultimately when you went in for your c-section, had you given consent? >> no. >> dre is suing the hospital and doctors claiming negligence, malpractice, and lack of informed cob sent. >> it's at its earliest stages. >> michael bass is dre's attorney. he spelled out his concerns. the fetus is at serious risk without the c-section an for the mother, benefits outweigh risk. senior staff signed off on the c-section. her attorney said the smoking gun for her case is also in the note. i have decided to override her refusal to have a c-section. the mother has the right. it is ethically wrong. it is medically wrong. it is always wrong to take a knife and stick it into a woman when she says no.

8:19 am
damages. >> very complicated case on both sides. was struck by the lawyer who said you cannot stick a knife in a woman if she says no. what's the doctor to do, though, when he feels that something is dangerous? >> right. well, you know, in her case, again, we haven't heard from the hospital. i really appreciated her sharing her story with us, so we don't know what the doctors actually thought at that time. regardless, a doctor can talk about risks, a doctor can say, i believe you're in harm's way, i believe the baby's in harm's way, i believe a c-section is the right thing to do, but ultimately the mother has the choice to consent to the surgery or not. >> and she didn't want it in this case. >> and she made it clear, it sounds like. >> so it's a very, very interesting case and it really raises so many ideas about women's rights in the operating room and in delivery. >> thank you. dr. holly phillips. tv is changing and so are the images.
