assess the reaction to bin laden's killings. they don't want to rush to new arrests by releasing the photos. >> clearly that was tornado damage that we were look at there and let's recap where we're at right now. white house secretary jay carnie was questioned about this and there were three sets of photos. two sets were take own the ground and another set take don't uss carl vin since, the aircraft carrier where bin laden's body was prepared in tradition and then put to rest at sea. the question tonight is these photos, should they or should they not release these to the
5:01 pm
public? >> with this report. all right, we're going continue on here and what we're basically dealing with tonight is the situation that the u.s. doesn't want to enflame tensions. the big concern are two. number one, the photos we know of are -- gruesome and number two, already in the arab world, there is that resistence to the united states going into pakistan. we're getting new details on exactly the final moments that were of involved in in this operation. it's being told by senior administration officials that osama bin laden didn't have a weapon at the time he was
5:02 pm
killed and, furthermore, the woman first reported killed in this operation was, in fact, survived the operation. the woman who was in bin laden's third story bedroom was shot in the leg and survived the assault by u.s. forces. there is a growing question about pakistan's role in all of this and whether or not officials new of the hideout or whether they were turning a blind eye to him being in the neighborhood, not far from where a important pakistani government military academy was located. shawn, we'll drag all of this together and get more to you as the evening goes. >> we want to apologize. we had technical difficulties there. let me ask you about the information. we know when officials, those navy seals went in and they found a large amount of information there in the compound. have we learned anymore information about that? >> it's a key point tonight, shawn. because of all the rifle attention that is being focused
5:03 pm
in on the death of osama bin laden. what those navy seal teams took away could turn into a treasure trove of intelligence against al qaeda and we were told the hard drive was takent and material. dianne feinstein said that they going to be going over all of that and this could certainly be the two of the one-two punch that will be delivered to al qaeda over the last 48 hours. >> and back to the photos of osama bin laden, whether it be osama bin laden on the ground or up in the airplane, or pictures of video of his burial at sea. did the white house give a timeline for when they might make a decision to release this to the public? >> reporter: they did try to really frame what is going on in the white house right now. they clearly do not like the stories that have been saying -- that they have been saying. the press secretary was careful to turn this into a phrase of a
5:04 pm
discussion that is going on in the white house. ultimately, he said, no matter what goes on in that discussion, it's president obama himself much like he made the call on whether or not to go into pakistan to launch the assault, it will be president obama who ultimately makes the final decision on whether or not any of these photos or videos are released. >> tom fitzgerald live in the newsroom thank you, tom. new video is giving us a better look at the compound where the navy seals found osama bin laden. this is amateur video of the area. you can see the wreck is there of the u.s. helicopter destroyed during the raid. neighbors there are worried about reprisal attacks. >> the vote is everyone in had of 0. -- is 97-0. >> reporter: a unanimous vote in the senate today. an hour ago, honoring the navy seals who killed osama bin laden. the resolution praised the military and intelligence officials who led the operation. you can depend on fox 5 for complete coverage of the death of osama bin laden. go to our website for the latest developments. of course, we want to know what you think about this.

5:06 pm
february 1st, 2010, roy lakyle and husto were standing outside of their cars near the intersection of rigs road when a cadillac suv hit them. the man had been in a minor fender bender and were exchanging information. the police took the 30-year-old driver into custody at the scene but took months before any charges were filed. at the time, state's attorney glen ivy gave this explanation. >> well, the reason the police don't bring charges immediately is because we have to get the accident reconstruction report first. before we can bring charges. and in addition, if we move too quickly, and charge too quickly, you can run into speedy trial problems or double jeopardy problems. the key is to make sure we give police enough time to do it right. >> reporter: roy was the father of five children. he worked at a jiffy lube and was returning from a pool hall when he had a fender bender with husto rosario. >> he wanted his son so bad and
5:07 pm
he's five months old. and -- to watch that. that is what he wanted to do. teach him how to play baseball and the father-son bond and. >> reporter: husto often took the siblings with him when he went on jobs to fix computers. they were returning from one of those job when is he was killed. >> a tight family and we miss him very, very much. and -- every day. >> a check of online court records show that jenny has had numerous run-ins with the law the last 10 years and she's twice before been arrested for dwi and in one case, she plead get. the other, she she dismissed and is maintaining her innocence. her defense attorney tolds jury he wanted them to keep an open
5:08 pm

5:09 pm
between cumberland and hagerstown, pretty strong storms there and nothing severe yet and that is moving to the east and to the northeast and this is going to take awhile to get here. this is in place until 10:00. washington county, this includes you and right down towards front royal and on i-81 and that is nothing for the immediate area. we'll talk about that, what i think is going to happen later on when we look at the full forecast in just a few minutes. >> thank you very much, gary. themont groomer county council decided to follow d.c.'s lead and to impose a bag tax on disposable plastics or paper bags. john henrehan was at the council meeting when the vote was taken and joins us live with more. >> reporter: the vote was nearly unanimous unless consumers bring a reusable bag
5:10 pm
with them when they go shopping. they will pay a 5-cent-a-bag tax in the future beginning on january 1st. nearly a million people live in montgomery county, maryland. each time they go to the grocery store or another retail establishment, they mostly carry away merchandise in paper andplastic bags and the county estimates 83 million bags a year are carried away. some wind up polighting the environment. the plastic bags don't degrade and that polluting trash becomes semi permanent. the county council has followed d.c.'s lead and established a 5- cent-a-bag tax. nancy floreen was the only no vote. >> i do think this tax is over the top and solves no problems as far as i'm concerned. it's just another regressive tax that creates its own set of administrative costs. >> reporter: some constituents agree, the bag tax is a bad idea. >> the cost-of-living is
5:11 pm
getting higher and higher and higher and now you have to pay extra money for a bag. come on, this is u.s. >> reporter: most residents won't mind a bag tax. >> a great way to save the environment and build revenue. i'm for the tax. >> for bag tax, very good idea. landfills are overflowing. >> reporter: those views were well-represented as eight of the 9 members voted for a bag tax. >> once people realize that it costs them extra to not be mindful of the environment is when we will see that change. >> and some bags are exempt from the tax, newspaper bags, dry cleaning bags, paper bags from a restaurant when you take leftover food home. the experience in d.c. is a tremendous decline in the number of requested plastic bags and montgomery county anticipates the same, the gross revenues estimated to be $1
5:12 pm
million by year five, about $400,000. again, the bag tax in montgomery county goes into effect january 1st. >> and do merchants get anything out. >> yes, like d.c. and they get to keep it for administrative costs. merchants in d.c. are saving a ton of money on plastic and paper tags -- bags and that is a win for merchants here. >> thank you. and british royalty descends on the district. we're talking about prince charles, why he's spending time in ladroit park next. see that sign? that is a sign of things to come at reagan international airport. what it will mean now that swept airlines has purchased airtran. perhap keep it here, fox 5 news at 5 is coming back.

5:16 pm
>> and how do we make this official? >> reporter: airtran will cease to exist once the integration is complete. the $1.4 billion deal gives southwest airlines all of airtran's routes, including atlanta and that is a major hole in the system right now. >> hello, atlanta! >> reporter: southwest will have a presence at reagan national airport. something that travelers are looking forward to. >> this is the first time i have flown to airtran and in a bit. >> i checked in, one bag was one pound over and i had to pay $49 for the extra five pounds and $20 for the other bag. >> reporter: southwest balloons drop bag fees and be class on airtran flights and perhaps before the planes are branded. >> bringing two airlines together and one love. >> it could mean fewer
5:17 pm
cancellations and more ways for air travelers to go somewhere. >> there are no plans for now to expand at reagan national, although a southwest representative told me they will try to spruce up the new area in terminal a and it could use some southwest love. >> yeah. >> and that could use a lot of love. >> you would think that will drive prices down and. >> you have to remember that airtran was a competitor of southwest airlines in the low- fare category. that could mean that there is a little increase in price, not huge but don't expect to see the super low air fares. >> i'm excited about the fact -- . >> given an alternative. >> right. >> exactly. >> out of regman national.
5:18 pm

5:34 pm
him is with? independence. it's not projectedby -- . >> and this is that difficult decision he had to make. >> one of the reasons he suffers from the left is because he's overly involved in world affairs. the left doesn't support the afghan war or the libyan expedition. the left wanted public choice with healthcare. the far left is disenchanted with brama and i think the threat -- with barack obama. the threat was real. i think he faced a real threat. this helps him with that enormously. >> thank you very much both of you for being with us. >> thank you. >> we'll continue this conversation again. >> thank you. and we're down in the web center right now. if you want to know more on the death of osama bin laden, go to www.myfoxdc.com right now. the team is working hard to keeping the information updated. to know the latest headlines, go to our home page and you will see a big headline that talks about him. you click on the headline that&that will give you everything i wanted to know
