Can NFL investigation into handling of Ray Rice case be truly independent?

There is new evidence the NFL's commissioner is not telling the whole truth about when he first learned that Ray Rice knocked out his now-wife in an Atlantic City elevator.

According to ESPN, Rice revealed to Roger Goodell in June that he had punched his then fiancee.
That contradicts what Goodell told CBS about that conversation with Rice. These inconsistencies have forced the NFL to enlist the help of a former FBI chief to investigate the league's handling of the Ray Rice case. But questions are already growing about who is leading the investigation.

Two years after the Benghazi attack, chaos in Libya

Thirteen years ago today, four planes hijacked by terrorists took their suicide mission across the northeast, striking landmarks at the heart of the country. It was the worst terror attack on the homeland in our history.

Years later, on another 9/11, another attack left four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens dead when militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.

CNN's Erin Burnett has more.

Kerry says U.S. not at war with ISIS: "I'm not sure what the definition of war would be then," Sen. Manchin says

The United States is hunting for ISIS targets in Syria.

The U.S. is now flying its first surveillance flights over Syria. There are nearly 500 more Americans troops en route to Iraq, bringing the president's total to 1700. And the U.S. has already conducted 154 strikes in Iraq.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration's strategy includes "many different things that one doesn't think of normally in context of war."

"What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counterterrorism operation," Kerry told CNN's Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. "It's going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it's a major counterterrorism operation that will have many different moving parts."

$349 for an Apple Watch or just DIY it?

The painful irony of the new Apple Watch is you need a device many people already use to tell time - their iPhones - to use the smartwatch.

Reporter: NFL had Ray Rice video in April

This new revelation is in addition to an AP report saying the NFL received the video of Ray Rice assaulting his now-wife in an elevator back in April.
