U.S. Secret Service Director Julia Pierson called an incident in which a man scaled a fence and entered the White House "unacceptable" and told a congressional committee Tuesday that she takes "full responsibility."

Omar Gonzalez, a 42-year-old knife-wielding Iraq war veteran, entered an unlocked door to the executive mansion, Pierson told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which grilled her on the September 19 security breach.

A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted Gonzalez on three separate federal and District of Columbia charges that could carry a maximum of 17 years in prison. His first court appearance is expected Wednesday in Washington.

Walmart's response Monday to a lawsuit filed by Tracy Morganover the car crash that left him in critical condition elicited a response of its own on Tuesday from the recovering comedian -- and it doesn't sound like he's laughing.

"I can't believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused," the former "Saturday Night Live" star said in a statement.

Police say that a truck driven by Walmart employee Kevin Roper in the early morning hours of June 7 collided with the rear of a limo bus that was carrying Morgan and four others on the New Jersey Turnpike.

A preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board said that Roper was traveling 20 mph over the speed limit and that he was almost at his drive time limit.

Surveillance video taken near The Spot shows the chaos that ensued after gunfire erupted in the Miami club early Sunday morning, injuring more than a dozen people.

Sources are telling CBS4’s Jim Defede that this shooting spree stemmed from a conflict between two young people at one of the high schools.

Sources told Defede that one person involved in the argument pulled out a gun and shot the other. He is in critical but stable condition and sources said he is from Norland High School.

“Anytime you hear so many lives are at risk in my community it’s always awe-striking,” said Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon.

Nearly three-quarters of Americans don’t believe President Barack Obama’s assertion that the country won’t use ground troops to fight the militant group Islamic State in Iraq or Syria, the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg survey finds.

The poll shows a substantial lack of trust in Mr. Obama’s repeated assertions that American military efforts will be limited to airstrikes and other efforts that don’t include ground troops. Some 72% of registered voters surveyed said U.S. ground troops eventually will be deployed against Islamic State’s fighters. Only 20% said they believe the U.S. won’t end up using military ground forces.

The Obama administration has cautioned that the battle against Islamic State won’t be won quickly. It has said it will proceed with an international coalition and that the U.S. won’t  commit ground troops to combat.

“I want to be clear: The American forces that have been deployed to Iraq do not and won’t have a combat mission,” Mr. Obama said Sept. 17. “As your commander in chief, I won’t commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.”

The mother of an Oklahoma murder suspect who allegedly beheaded a co-worker has apologized for his crimes, asking for strangers to pray for her family as she defended her crazed kin.

Alton Nolen, a 30-year-old Islamic convert, went on a rampage Thursday afternoon following his firing at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Okla. He severed 54-year-old Colleen Hufford’s head with a produce knife before attacking Traci Johnson, 43, who survived the slashing, police said.

“My son was a good kid,” Joyce Nolen said in a Facebook video of her son. “I know what they saying, that he done, but I’m going to tell you this, that’s not my son. There’s two sides to every story, and we’re only hearing one.”

The ex-con was taken down by the company’s chief operating officer, Mark Vaughn, a reserve deputy sheriff who opened fire after hearing screams and cries.

The following is a script of "President Obama" which aired on Sept. 28, 2014. Steve Kroft is the correspondent. L. Franklin Devine, Maria Gavrilovic and Michael Radutzky, producers.

Last week was a long and momentous one in the presidency of Barack Obama. On Monday, he began a bombing campaign with members of an international coalition against ISIS and other terrorist targets in Syria, while continuing airstrikes in northern Iraq. On Wednesday, he addressed the United Nations and laid out his case in the strongest terms for international action against Muslim extremists. By Thursday, his anti-ISIS coalition had grown to more than 60 members, ranging from the Saudis, Jordanians, Emiratis and Europeans who flew missions, to the Irish and Swedes who wrote checks, to the Bulgarians and Egyptians who wished us well.

On Friday, he was back in the White House where he met us in the Diplomatic Reception Room for a conversation that ranged from terror networks to the American economy.

CHRIS WALLACE, HOST: All right. This week -- you talked about the Congress -- this week, the president told Congress that he has the power to carry out these strikes in part because of the Congress's 2002 authorization for the use of force in Iraq, but I have a letter here that Susan Rice sent to the Congress back in July of this year, just two months ago, in which she writes this, "With American combat troops having completed their withdrawal from Iraq on December 18th, 2011, the Iraq authorization for the use of military force" -- excuse me -- "is no longer used for any U.S. government activities, and the administration fully supports its repeal."

How can you go to war based on an authorization that you say is no longer the basis for any U.S. government activities, and this authorization, you wanted it repealed?

TONY BLINKEN, WH DEPUTY NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER: Chris, there are two authorizations in question. The first one is the 2001 authorization to use force. That was the one that was voted by Congress in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. It said this, we can use all necessary means to go after those --

(CROSSTALK)

WALLACE: But you also said the Iraq authorization.

BLINKEN: Yes, let me just finish.

Islamist militants in the Philippines are understood to be threatening to behead one of two German hostages being held, unless Germany agrees to pay a large ransom and withdraw all support for the US-led attacks on ISIS in Iraq and Syria within 15 days. Germany has stressed that it will not be threatened in this way, The Local has reported.

The hostages, reported to be a German doctor and his girlfriend, were sailing a yacht between Malaysia and the Philippines in April this year when they were abducted by Abu Sayyaf, a militant Islamic group acting in the region.

It appears that the group are now following the examples of ISIS militants, who within the last month have beheaded two Americans and a Brit, and threatened the lives of two more, and a group acting in Algeria who yesterday beheaded a French tourist, having demanded the French government withdraw their troops from Iraq and Syria within 24 hours; a demand that was not met.

Lynn Rasberry sat in the back row of a Sacramento courtroom listening to a lurid tale of alcohol, cocaine, guns, death and nepotism in the California state Senate, and found a measure of vindication.

Rasberry, a large and easygoing guy of 59, has gotten his blood pressure under control since he retired in 2010. He had worked 28 years for the Senate’s special services unit, which provides drivers to senators. He was the supervisor for the last five years of his tenure.

“I loved my job,” Rasberry said. “I would have stayed longer.”

In what the local media is calling "a bizarre coincidence," police arrested a fired Oklahoma City nursing home worker on Friday after he allegedly threatened to cut off a co-worker's head.  

Via The Oklahoman: 

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million.

“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.

Muriithi, a native of Kenya, worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, according to police. His arrest Friday coincided with the revelation that fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen/Jah'Keem Yisrael had beheaded a co-worker after he was fired the day before.
