Al Qaeda U.S. hostage Warren Weinstein, dead

WDBJ 7 National News - - Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:04:20 GMT

The White House announced Thursday that a U.S. counterterrorism operation targeting an al Qaeda compound in January accidentally killed two innocent hostages. One of them was Warren Weinstein.

Multiple sources tell CNN that the operation was a drone strike.

Gunmen abducted Warren Weinstein in 2011 from his home in Lahore, Pakistan. They posed as neighbors, offered food and then pistol-whipped the American aid worker and tied up his guards, according to his daughter Alisa Weinstein.

Weinstein was employed by J.E. Austin Associates Inc., a U.S. consulting firm based in Arlington, Virginia, that is a contractor for the U.S. Agency for International Development. He was a world-renowned development expert, according to the company's website.

Just a few months after Weinstein's capture, al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released a recording claiming the terror group was holding Weinstein -- and demanding, among other things, that the U.S. end airstrikes in Pakistan.

Al-Zawahiri described the captive as "a former employee and a current contractor working with the U.S. government in its aid program to Pakistan, which aims to fight the jihad in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and just like the Americans arrest any suspect linked to al Qaeda and the Taliban, even if they were far related."

Weinstein was working in Pakistan to help Pakistanis live better lives, according to President Barack Obama, who spoke about his death Thursday morning.

Weinstein "willingly left the comforts" of his home in the United States to help Pakistanis, Obama said. Both Weinstein and another hostage killed in the January operation, Italian Giovanni Lo Porto, "believed passionately" that they could make a difference and had dedicated their lives to helping others.

Weinstein served in the Peace Corps before he worked for USAID, the President said, adding that al Qaeda held Weinstein for his Jewish faith. Obama noted that the hostage's health had been deteriorating.

A senior White House official and other high-ranking officials were involved in notifying the Weinstein family Wednesday. The family was given what was described as the equivalent of a classified briefing.

The United States does not have Weinstein's body and did not conduct a DNA test, sources said. A variety of intelligence sources confirmed his and Lo Porto's deaths. The judgment that they had died is based on circumstantial evidence and a CIA assessment.

Weinstein's wife, Elaine Weinstein, released a statement.

"On behalf of myself, our two daughters, our son-in-law, and two grandchildren, we are devastated by this news and the knowledge that my husband will never safely return home. We were so hopeful that those in the U.S. and Pakistani governments with the power to take action and secure his release would have done everything possible to do so and there are no words to do justice to the disappointment and heartbreak we are going through," it read. "We do not yet fully understand all of the facts surrounding Warren's death but we do understand that the U.S. government will be conducting an independent investigation of the circumstances.

The family looks forward to the results of that investigation, the statement said.

"But those who took Warren captive over three years ago bear ultimate responsibility. I can assure you that he would still be alive and well if they had allowed him to return home after his time abroad working to help the people of Pakistan," the statement continued. "The cowardly actions of those who took Warren captive and ultimately to the place and time of his death are not in keeping with Islam and they will have to face their God to answer for their actions."

"Warren spent his entire life working to benefit people across the globe and loved the work that he did to make people's lives better. In Pakistan, where he was working before he was abducted, he loved and respected the Pakistani people and their culture. He learned to speak Urdu and did everything he could to show his utmost and profound respect for the region.

"We cannot even begin to express the pain our family is going through and we ask for the respect of our privacy as we go through this devastating ordeal."

Alisa Weinstein told CNN in June 2014 that her father was ailing. But it was an optimistic time for the family.

That month captors released U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, and that buoyed Alisa Weinstein's hopes that her father would be freed.

Weinstein's daughter said he had a heart condition and severe asthma.

Al Qaeda released a video of him on Christmas 2013. He appeared to be suffering.

Over the years, when Weinstein's case came up, U.S. officials called for his release but repeatedly said Washington would not bargain with al Qaeda.

During the operation in January, American officials had "no reason to believe either hostage was present" when the raid was launched on a compound in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.

The White House also disclosed Thursday that two other Americans, both al Qaeda operatives, were also killed in U.S. counterterrorism operations in the same region.

Al Qaeda leader Ahmed Farouq, who was an American citizen, was killed in the operation that killed the two hostages.

Adam Gadahn, another American who joined al Qaeda, was also killed by U.S. forces in the region, "likely in a separate" counterterrorism operation, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in the statement.

Ex-CIA chief David Petraeus faces sentencing for leaking military secrets

ABC 7 WJLA National News - The Associated Press - Thu, 23 Apr 2015 07:02:37 EST

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Former CIA Director David Petraeus, whose career was destroyed by an extramarital affair with his biographer, was expected to be sentenced Thursday in federal court in Charlotte for giving her classified material while she was working on the book.

Petraeus will appear at the sentencing, which comes two months after he agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material.

The plea agreement carries a possible sentence of up to a year in prison. In court papers, prosecutors recommended two years of probation and a $40,000 fine. But the judge is not bound by that and could still impose a prison sentence.

The agreement was filed in Charlotte, where Paula Broadwell, the general's biographer and former lover, lives with her husband and children.

The affair ruined the reputation of the retired four-star Army general who led U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As part of his deal, Petraeus agreed not to contest the set of facts laid out by the government.

Prosecutors said that while Broadwell was writing her book in 2011, Petraeus gave her eight binders of classified material he had improperly kept from his time as the top military commander in Afghanistan. Days later, he took the binders back to his house.

Among the secret information contained in the "black books" were the names of covert operatives, the coalition war strategy and notes about Petraeus' discussions with President Barack Obama and the National Security Council, prosecutors said.

Those binders were later seized by the FBI in an April 2013 search of Petraeus' Arlington, Virginia, home, where he had kept them in the unlocked drawer of a desk in a ground-floor study.

Prosecutors said that after resigning from the CIA in November 2012, Petraeus had signed a form falsely attesting he had no classified material. He also lied to FBI agents by denying he supplied the information to Broadwell, according to court documents.

Petraeus admitted having an affair with Broadwell when he resigned as CIA director. Both have publicly apologized and said their romantic relationship began only after he had retired from the military.

Broadwell's admiring biography of him, "All In: The Education of David Petraeus," came out in 2012, before the affair was exposed.

Petraeus held the CIA post less than a year, not long enough to leave a significant mark on the spy agency. The core of his identity has been a military man.

A Ph.D. with a reputation as a thoughtful strategist, Petraeus was brought in by President George W. Bush to command multinational forces in Iraq in 2007, a period when the war began to turn in favor of the U.S.

Petraeus' command coincided with the "surge" of American forces in Iraq and a plan to pay Sunni militias to fight al-Qaida in Iraq.

With American help, the Sunni tribes were able to push out insurgents and enable U.S. troops to withdraw in 2011. Those same Sunni areas are now controlled by the Islamic State group, which evolved from the remnants of al-Qaida after Iraqi's Shiite-led government proved weak.

Arlington housing inspector allegedly sexually assaulted woman in home

ABC 7 WJLA News - Jay Korff - Thu, 23 Apr 2015 00:13:32 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: &ldquo:No one should feel like a prisoner in their own home,&rdquo: says Tressa Wilson.

Her story is horrifying and hard to hear. But it&rsquo:s a story she wants told, so if other victims are out there they&rsquo:ll feel comfortable coming forward.

Wilson said, &ldquo:That was the first time he ever came to my home, and for him to feel like he can put his hands on me&mdash:no, you don&rsquo:t do that.&rdquo:

Wilson says April 14 at 10:34 a.m.&mdash:a date and time she&rsquo:ll never forget&mdash:Arlington County housing inspector Olaseni Cole came to her home for an annual inspection. Wilson receives a yearly home check through a voucher program in which she participates.

She says at one point during the inspection, Cole started whispering in her direction, but she couldn&rsquo:t hear or understand what he was saying. Wilson says she asked him to speak up.

Wilson said, &ldquo:He was like, &lsquo:You are beautiful and I want you.&rsquo: And I was like, &lsquo:What? You&rsquo:re crazy.&rsquo: I said, &lsquo:Are you coming to do an inspection or what?&rsquo: Then, he aggressively grabbed me. He grabbed me by my head. First, he grabbed my breasts. I pushed him. He grabbed me by my head. He forced me to kiss him. He kissed me. I didn&rsquo:t kiss him back and then he started rubbing my body parts, my private parts, my butt and my private parts. And he was aggressive with it and I was pushing him off me, and I told him, &lsquo:The inspection is over and it&rsquo:s time for you to go.&rsquo:&rdquo:

Police say based on the circumstances of this attack, they hope anyone who has had an inappropriate encounter with Cole, like Wilson, can find the courage to come forward.

&ldquo:And he turned around and told me, &lsquo:Don&rsquo:t tell nobody.&rsquo: And I&rsquo:m looking at him like, &lsquo:Don&rsquo:t tell nobody? I&rsquo:m going to tell everybody,&rsquo:&rdquo: said Wilson.

Cole, 54, is jailed without bond, charged with sexual battery. County officials say Cole has been terminated from his job, which he started in March 2014.

Wounded warrior run from New York to Atlanta makes stop in D.C.

ABC 7 WJLA DC News - Brianne Carter, ABC 7 News - Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:16:14 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- Twelve military veterans are on the run with the Stars and Stripes in hand to raise awareness of the troubles they and their colleagues face when returning home from war.

The group, known as Shepherd's Men, are running 911 miles from Ground Zero in New York City to Atlanta, Georgia.

They stopped Wednesday at the Marine Corps Memorial in Arlington and then met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

Each runner in the group wears a 22-pound vest, representing the 22 veterans who commit suicide every day.

The men expect to wrap up their journey this Sunday and by then hope to have raised $250,000 for a military rehabilitation program for brain injuries and post traumatic stress disorder at Atlanta's Shepherd Center.

Lightning strike ignites, totals Arlington man?s Mercedes Benz

ABC 7 WJLA News - Jay Korff - Tue, 21 Apr 2015 22:38:00 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Dan Goure&rsquo:s silver 2002 Mercedes Benz 430 CLK had only about 75,000 miles on it. Now, his Arlington neighbors are flocking to see the once high-performance vehicle, because it&rsquo:s a marvel to Mother Nature&rsquo:s might.

&ldquo:It was in good condition, low mileage and it was a nice-running car,&rdquo: Goure said.

The car&rsquo:s sleek lines and luxurious interior are now a melted mess.

&ldquo:I couldn&rsquo:t imagine that it was powerful enough to ignite the whole car,&rdquo: said Goure.

During Monday night&rsquo:s storm, lightning rained down from the sky.

Goure said, &ldquo:We heard the explosion, heard the bang.&rdquo:

Goure says he and his wife watched from a front window as sparks flew. Fire officials say the lightning strike took down a power line that caught fire. The arcing line, while inching ever closer to the car, punched holes in the road, turning asphalt to something that feels more like glass.

Goure said, &ldquo:It took about 15 to 20 minutes to burn down here. So, it was like a slow match.&rdquo:

But this car owner&rsquo:s biggest concern resides under the road: gas lines. He says gas officials told him that if those lines had been punctured, a damaged car would have been the least of everyone&rsquo:s problems.

&ldquo:You could have had one hell of a disaster in the neighborhood. Could have taken out two or three houses,&rdquo: he said.

The car was declared a total loss. There were no injuries.

Arlington police now say mother of 2 was stabbed to death

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press, Jeff Goldberg, ABC 7 News - Mon, 20 Apr 2015 19:38:04 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA/AP) - Authorities investigating a 42-year-old Arlington woman's death inside her home last week disclosed Monday that the woman was stabbed. Over the weekend, police had changed the status of the case from a 'very suspicious death' to a homicide.

Arlington County police found the body of Bonnie Black on Friday. Police, who had previously declined to say how she died, said they arrived at her home on 18th Street after a passerby spotted Black's pajama-clad 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son in the backyard apparently playing.

Court records indicate Black was nearing the end of a divorce with the father of the children and had a restraining order against him. Police also said they had been called to the home previously for reported domestic violence and were exploring whether that was connected to Black's death.

Arlington police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said Black's estranged husband went voluntarily last week to police headquarters to be questioned by detectives and that he was neither detained nor charged. His truck, however, has been seized as part of the investigation.

Death of Arlington mom now investigated as homicide: husband was under protective order

ABC 7 WJLA News - Jeff Goldberg, ABC 7 News, Richard Reeve - Sun, 19 Apr 2015 17:01:41 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- Arlington Police confirm the suspicious death discovered Friday morning is now being investigated as a homicide.

The victim has been identified as 42 year old Bonnie Black, a mother of two. Police have not said how Black was killed.

Black&rsquo:s body was discovered inside the home at 1101 18th Street South in South Arlington shortly after someone noticed her two young children playing alone in the front yard.

Black&rsquo:s estranged husband has spoken with Arlington police and has not been detained or charged.

Police said they talked with the children's father and said there was a protective order against him, however he has not been detained or placed in custody.

ABC7 has obtained a December 2014 document showing that Bonnie Black had accused her husband of verbal and physical abuse. And she said the violence was escalating.

Authorities said they had received calls to the residence before but didn't elaborate. A car at the home was towed from the scene by police as part of their investigation into the death.

Investigators continue to process the scene, and further canvassing of the neighborhood is expected early this week.

Artisphere, Arlington's domed arts center, is now doomed

ABC 7 WJLA Education - Stephen Tschida - Fri, 17 Apr 2015 22:23:30 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- Artisphere, the domed center for the arts in Arlington, is now doomed after the county board voted to shut it down, calling it too expensive.

Opened in 2010 as a nucleus of culture in the concrete corridor of Rosslyn, Artisphere was designed to house a vast gallery of art and to serve as a venue for artistic expression.

But after shelling out $15 million and running in the red, county leaders ran out of patience.

The county will shave more than $2 million from its upcoming annual budget by shuttering Artisphere at the end of June.

No definitive plan has been released on what will eventually occupy the space on Wilson Blvd. nor what will happen to its iconic sign.

Joan Mulholland of Arlington, an unlikely Civil Rights pioneer

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - Alison Starling - Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:13:24 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- America has recently recognized the 50th anniversary of the marches from Selma to Montgomery and their meaning to the civil rights movement. But the news has been dominated by racial tension with police and protests all over the country, most recently, the shooting of Walter Scott in South Carolina.

ABC7 News salutes a Working Woman who was on the front lines of the original Freedom Rides and sit-ins. And as a white southerner, she might seem to be an unlikely civil rights pioneer.

Joan Mulholland has lived in a modest Arlington home for decades. She raised her five boys here by herself. She was a teaching assistant in Arlington schools.

But it was what happened in her life five decades ago that defined who she is and what she stands for. And at 5-foot-2, she is a rebel in every sense of the word.

&ldquo:Once you got into it, as a white southerner, there was no turning back,&rdquo: Mulholland says. &ldquo:You didn't have anywhere to go back to.&rdquo:

Mulholland was 19 when she decided to join the civil rights movement. She left her segregationist parents and became a Freedom Rider. She participated in sit-ins in Arlington and then throughout the South.

She&rsquo:s in one of the Civil Rights movement&rsquo:s most iconic photos sitting at the Woolworth&rsquo:s counter in Jackson, Mississippi.

&ldquo:They would yell at us, make dirty jokes. Dump everything they could get their hands on us, the sugar, the ketchup, mustard, what have you. Even spray paint on our backs,&rdquo: she says.

Mulholland was arrested five times and she recently went back to one of those jail cells for a documentary about her called ":An Ordinary Hero.":

Mulholland cherishes her meetings with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Now she is struggling with images of the racial unrest of today.

At 73, Mulholland still travels the world speaking to children.

ESPN reporter suspended after berating clerk

WDBJ 7 National News - - Fri, 17 Apr 2015 00:05:17 GMT

ESPN suspended reporter Britt McHenry for a week after a video of her video berating a towing company employee surfaced Thursday.

The sports network announced her suspension on Twitter.

McHenry posted an apology on Twitter, saying she allowed her emotions to get away from her during a stressful situation at a Virginia business. "I ... said some insulting and regrettable things."

"As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake," she wrote.

On the roughly one-minute long video that was captured by a surveillance camera, McHenry says to an employee at a register: "I'm in the news sweetheart, I will (expletive) sue this place."

The employee tells McHenry she's being recorded but it doesn't stop her from continuing her rant.

"That's why I have a degree and you don't," she says. "I wouldn't work at a scumbag place like this. Makes my skin crawl even being here."

Later McHenry says, "maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?"

She further slams the woman's appearance and ends with "Lose some weight, baby girl."

The edited video was first posted on the website LiveLeak, which said the incident occurred April 5.

McHenry is based in Washington and the incident apparently happened across the Potomac River in Arlington.

McHenry joined ESPN in 2014. At the time of her hiring ESPN's senior vice president and director of news, Vince Doria, praised her knack for getting interviews with major sports celebrities.

"In a relatively short time, Britt has established a reputation for strong, aggressive reporting in the D.C. area, and an ability to land big interviews," said Doria. "Her presence there will be a great benefit to ESPN's newsgathering and, as with all of our bureau reporters, she will be assigned to high-profile stories around the country."

Prior to ESPN, she was with WJLA in Washington. McHenry joined the station in 2008 and the sports staff in 2010.

According to the Washington Business Journal, she went to Stetson as an undergraduate and Northwestern for graduate studies in journalism.

Firefighters eventually put out the blaze in the 100 block of South Rolfe Street near Columbia Pike, but said the home was total loss and two other houses next door were also damaged.

Fire crews reported heavy flames coming from the second floor and the attic of the home when they first arrived, but said fortunately the occupants had all made it outside.

There were no injuries reported.

Decorated Marine killed in Fl. training accident buried at Arlington National Cemetery

Virginia WJLA - ABC News - Thu, 16 Apr 2015 08:16:31 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (ABC News) - The steady, pouring rain was fitting for the occasion. It was a military funeral at Arlington National Cemetery for Marine Staff Sgt. Andrew Seif, :killed in a training accident one month ago.

Exactly one week after being awarded the Navy&rsquo:s third-highest award for valor, the Silver Star, Seif's helicopter went down in heavy fog off the coast of Florida, killing all on board. Among the dead were some of the most highly trained Marines and Army pilots: 11 men from Marine Special Operations Command, knowns as MARSOC, and two pilots and two crewmembers from the Louisiana National Guard.

It&rsquo:s a stark reminder that the risks associated with military service aren't always on the battlefield.

The wives of the men killed have traveled together to each funeral service, offering support for one another.

They were all present at Arlington National Cemetery today where Staff Sgt. Seif was laid to rest, in Section 60 with others lost fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2013 Seif was awarded the USO&rsquo:s Marine of the Year. He was honored for his heroic actions during a July 2012 mission in Afghanistan, where he lost his close friend Sgt. Justin Hansen.

By his side for every award ceremony and by his side again Monday was his wife Dawn, who is pregnant with their first child.

Judge weighs lawsuit filed by deaf man jailed 6 weeks in Arlington for alleged iPad theft

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Thu, 16 Apr 2015 06:00:43 EST

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - The Arlington County sheriff and state officials are asking a judge to toss out a lawsuit filed by a deaf man who says he spent six weeks at the county jail unable to adequately communicate.

A hearing on the lawsuit filed by Ethiopian immigrant Abreham Zemedagegehu (zeh-MAY'-deh-geh-GAY'-hoo) is scheduled for Thursday in federal court in Alexandria.

Zemedagegehu says he was arrested last year at Reagan National Airport on charges he stole an iPad, but was unaware of the charges against him for several days because he had no access to a sign-language interpreter.

His ability to communicate in written English is extremely limited, and he says he spent six weeks in the jail with only intermittent access to an interpreter.

Government lawyers say the jailers did nothing wrong.

Ovechkin ready for Caps-Islanders series with refreshed outlook

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - The Associated Press - Wed, 15 Apr 2015 11:43:49 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - For all of his goals and trio of MVP trophies, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin never has been past the second round of the NHL playoffs.

Didn't even qualify at all a year ago.

So 23 months will have passed between postseason games for Ovechkin when his Capitals host John Tavares and the New York Islanders on Wednesday night to begin their first-round Eastern Conference series.

"He seems to be having more fun, to me. I think it's more enjoyable for him to be in this environment," Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said after a team practice earlier this week.

"He's more comfortable with his game, the way it is now - and it's a lot more fun when you're playing as a team and you're winning as a team. So he's more enthusiastic."

Ovechkin scored 53 goals to lead the league for the third consecutive season and fifth time overall. One key difference for the Russian wing, who's back on the left side after spending a season on the right: A rating of plus-10, quite an improvement over the minus-35 of a year earlier.

"He had something to prove. He took criticism for that minus number last year and I think he wanted to prove that he could play within a structure. He could do the same things he's done offensively within a structured team environment and have team success, too," MacLellan said. "That was high on his priority list coming into this year."

After time as a go-go-go offensive juggernaut and as a grind-it-out defensive team, the Capitals have found success this season with a more balanced - and adjustable - system under new head coach Barry Trotz.

Not only has Ovechkin's scoring pace remained elite, but he also seems to appreciate the current group's potential for success in the postseason.

"It's just a different team, I think, right now, compared with the last couple years. A mature team. An experienced team," the 29-year-old Ovechkin said. "We just have to play our game, I think. If we're going to play our game ... we're going to be good."

So much of the best-of-seven series figures to hinge on the play of Ovechkin and Tavares, New York's captain.

The 24-year-old Tavares enters his second career playoff series after finishing fourth to Ovechkin with 38 goals and second in the league - two spots ahead of Ovechkin - with 86 points.

"He's a leader for their team," Capitals goalie Braden Holtby said. "He makes them tick."

Here are other things to know about Islanders-Capitals:

CLOSE ONES: Each team won two of four head-to-head meetings in the regular season: three games went to overtime.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Paced by Ovechkin's NHL-best 25 power-play goals, the Capitals converted 25.3 percent of their chances, the third year in a row they've topped that category. The Islanders' penalty kill had a 78 percent success rate, ranking 26th out of 30 clubs.

HOLTBY VS. HALAK: Holtby tied franchise records with 41 wins, nine shutouts and a league-high 73 appearances. Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak, who set a team mark with 38 wins, is a familiar face for the Capitals. He led eighth-seeded Montreal past Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington in 2010, stopping 41 of 42 shots in Game 7: a year ago, Washington acquired him at the trade deadline. Halak has not played well lately, including allowing a goal on a 50-foot shot with 2 seconds left against Philadelphia.

HAMONIC'S HEALTH: New York's do-everything defenseman Travis Hamonic got injured Friday and missed the regular-season finale. The Islanders brought up Griffin Reinhart from the AHL on Monday as a precaution.

NO MORE NASSAU: This is the Islanders' final season at Nassau Coliseum, their home since 1972. "I'm sure people there are going to be fired up," Washington forward Joel Ward said.
