Funding for the Department of Homeland Security runs out at the end of the day Friday. If no deal is reached, essential security personnel would still report to work, but there would be no money to pay them during the funding lapse… that’s the vast majority of the 243,000 agency employees. There may have been some developments in the Senate Thursday night, and Ali will have the latest for you this morning.

The ISIS terrorist who has become known as “Jihadi John” and shown in brutal execution videos has been identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti national from a West London suburb. British authorities had wanted to keep it secret for operational reasons and what they were trying to do was to lure him into calling home, thinking he would call back to his family in West London and perhaps they would be able to track down his location in Syria. President Obama is vowing to get this man and bring him to justice.

“Jihadi John”, identified as Mohammed Emwazi, is a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s, who was previously known to British security services. He was born in Kuwait and comes from a middle-class family in London, where he grew up and graduated with a computer programming degree. Emwazi first appeared in a video last August, when he apparently killed the US journalist James Foley and is thought to have appeared in others.
