A cybersecurity consultant told the FBI he hacked into computer systems aboard airliners up to 20 times and managed to control an aircraft engine during a flight, according to federal court documents. Chris Roberts was detained by the FBI in April following a United Airlines flight to Syracuse, New York, after officials saw Twitter posts he made discussing hacking into the plane he was traveling on. An FBI search warrant application filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York describes the investigation of Roberts for possible computer crimes.

President Obama ordered the Delta Force raid into Syria that killed a key ISIS leader, but the news of that success was tempered with word out of Iraq that ISIS forces have taken control of Ramadi. How to handle the situation in Iraq continues to be a complicated foreign policy and military issue for the White House. The focus Monday however will be on effective community policing, as the president heads to Camden, NJ, one of the poorest cities in the country, but where an entire police force was fired, and a new one was brought in… one that federal officials say is showing the way to do things.

The N-F-L Player’s Association and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appeal his suspension over the ‘deflate gate’ scandal. As his agent said he would, Tom Brady appealed a four game suspension the agent called “ridiculous.” Investigators found what they called “substantial and credible evidence” that Brady was aware of, maybe even approved of, actions by two Patriots equipment handlers to release air from footballs prior to the AFC championship. The Patriots created a website to rebut the investigation, calling its conclusions “incomplete, incorrect and lacking in context.” Aaron is in Boston

The death toll from the Amtrak wreck rose to eight with the discovery of another body in a mangled railcar Thursday, while a lawyer for the train’s engineer said his client has no recollection of the crash and wasn’t on his cellphone or using drugs or alcohol. A cadaver dog found the eighth body in the wreckage of the first passenger car Thursday morning, nearly 36 hours after the crash. Investigators say Amtrak 188 sped up for about a minute to over 100 miles per hour before hitting a curve Tuesday night and derailing. Based on data gleaned from a front facing camera investigators say they have determined the train was going at 70 miles per hour 65 seconds before derailing, 90 miles per hour at 31 seconds and 100 miles per hour at 16 seconds.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has such poor management over its airport security equipment that the agency does not know if its screening machines are working, according to an audit by the Office of Inspector General. American lives may be at risk due to ineffective maintenance of its equipment, which has cost taxpayers $1.2 billion. Brad discusses the IG’s findings, and the concerns it raises.
