6:01 am
woman. what nearly stopped them from getting to her. today's top story, two alleged terror plots targeting two u.s. cities and federal agents say that the suspects in both were ready to pull the trigger. the arrests were in illinois and texas. counterterrorism authorities say the plots were unrelated and neither case is connected with the third alleged plot based in colorado that we've been talking about all week. first in illinois, in springfield, michael fenton is charged to trying to detonate a bomb outside the federal building. he tried to blow it up with a remote control. he was arrested as he pushed the button. in dallas, a 19-year-old jordanian man was arrested as he tried to set up a homemade bomb at an office tower. both plots are considered home grown. >> they don't have to blend in. they already are in. don't need fake i.d.s, don't need to find a way to live or
6:02 am
make money, so it's much more difficult for us to find these homegrown self-radicalized terrorists. >> fbi agents prevented both aacts going undercover. in about ten minutes richard lui explains how they outsmarted the alleged terrorists. drinking wanter at many schools across the country is tainted with toxic levels of lead and pesticides. a new associated press association finds kids in all 50 states have been exposed to the water for the last ten years and many schools aren't fixing old pipes because providing bottled water is cheaper. the epa says the number of safety violations has spiked in the last decade because of stricter standards. if you have children's and infant's tylenol at home pay close attention here. some of the medicine is being recalled because of a possible bacterial contamination. jennifer westhoven is looking out for you on this one. is this a danger to kids in. >> johnson & johnson, when you
6:03 am
look at how this works, saying it's almost impossible that any kid would get hurt or sick from this but they want to be absolutely sure so they're recalling nearly two dozen tileal liquids, children's and infants products, found bacteria in an inactive ingredient that wasn't used in the product. they're calling it an apun dance of caution. to see the list of the recalled lot numbers so you can make sure everything in your medicine cabinet is okay go to the website, and look at important links. you check the lot numbers to the bottom of the tileal box or on the sticker around the bottle. >> jen, thanks so much. president obama reportedly is preparing to accuse iran of having a secret nuclear fuel facility. the "new york times" reports the president, along with the leaders of britain and france will make that accusation before the opening of the g-20 sum nit pittsburgh this morning. mr. obama is scheduled to make a statement in about two and a half hours from now but we don't know if iran will be the topic.
6:04 am
in another big announcement today the g-20 is expected to announce that it is taking over the role of coordinating global economic policy from the smaller g-8 and president obama is pushing for it. that means that countries like china, brazil and india would have a say on things like trade policy and bank regulation. >> by order of the city of pittsburgh chief -- >> reporter: police fired pepper spray and rubber bullets at protesters outside the bullet. they said some protesters threw rocks and broke windows. they arrested about 20 people. everyone who wants the. -vaccine will be able to get it. that's what health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius announced yesterday. 6 million doses will be available in the u.s. during the first week of october. then 10 to 20 million doses each week after that. now most of the initial doses will be in a nasal spray.

6:09 am
brand new morning, we have video of terrorist suspect nagibullah za dee buying large
6:10 am
amounts of a chemical used to make bombs. he made several purchases recently. experts say he could have done major damage with the chemicals. we'll have more about what investigators know about this man. first more details on the alleged plot to blow up a federal building and a courthouse in illinois. 29-year-old michael fenton is charged with attempted murder of federal employees and attempted use of a weapons of mass destruction. correspondent richard lui is joining us now. how long has he been on the fbi radar in. >> good morning to you, natasha. agents have been tracking him for two years. the sting operation started in february. according to the fbi aft david an undercover agent posed as a low-level al qaeda operative and gave finton a van supposedly filled with one ton of explosives. the bombs were fake. finton didn't know that at the time. agents arrested him yesterday after he parked the van outside the federal courthouse in springfield and tried to detonate it with a cell phone.
6:11 am
>> richard source why would he want to do this exactly? is the fbi talking about a possible motive in. >> what we know right now a federal affidavit is saying finton is an ex-con who converted to islam in prison and called himself talib islam. >> i'm very shocked to hear this about him because from what i know about him, this isn't in his character at all. this element of what's on the news about him, this is, i don't really, didn't know him to be that kind of guy, and this could be a mistake. >> authorities say it is no mistake. they say that finton told agents he identifialy iay aiay aial id walker lindh and wrote to him in prison. there's another terror plot foiled in dallas. >> a lot of things going on, on

6:13 am
to be enough? a lot of outrage had been building against the fees, they'd become a huge source of profits for the banks so what the banks want to do is they want to try and tamp down the outrage, they want to cut them down just enough so that congress stops looking without giving up all of that revenue all together. u.s. bank will limit the number of overdraft fees to no more than three a day, usually around 35 bucks each, which you probably know if you've been dinged by them. they're also looking to say we would only hit you "x" many times in a year and eliminate overdraft fees when a customer's account is overdrawn by less than ten bucks so a little mistake, we'd forgive you for. keep in mind a lot of this because they're kind of, this is my, how to put it in simple terms view. don't look over here. nothing to see here, move along so that's what they're hoping congress will do.
6:14 am
some mortgage rates are at record lows, good news in a bad economy. this is according to the freddie mac. i'm not necessarily talking about the 30-year fixed rate mortgage, the regular mortgage, not frills, the basic that most people get, that's a little more than five percent. look at 159-year, if you can make those payments, 4.5%, that is the lowest since records were first kept in 1991. >> wow, nice deal for people. thanks so much, jen. what are you doing next tuesday night? we have an exciting edition, "the joy behar show" will air every night at 9:00 eastern on hln, tuesday september 29th so make sure you tune in. federal authorities raided a warehouse and say they found steroids in something they shouldn't have. you know why i sell tools? tools are uncomplicated? nothing complicated about a pair of 10 inch hose clamp pliers. you know what's complicated?
