Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill is stepping out of the shadows to take credit for firing the shot that killed Osama Bin Laden. He first told his story anonymously to Esquire Magazine in 2013. Now Mr. O'Neill has gone public in an interview with the Washington Post. That decision is a breach of the SEALs' code of honor. Former Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam tells Anderson that O'Nell now has a bigger bullseye on his back than Bin Laden.
Brian Todd takes a closer look at O'Neill's claims.
Imagine receiving incessant harassment for simply walking down the street. The advocacy group Hollaback says it happens to women every day. In a video calling attention to the problem of 'catcalling,' an actor name Shoshana Roberts walked around New York City for ten hours behind a filmmaker with a camera hidden in his backpack. In an interview with Anderson, Roberts says she was harassed more than a hundred times that day and ever since the video went viral with more than 40,000 comments - she is now receiving rape threats.
The family of a special needs student at a school in Madison County, Alabama is suing over an incident that happened nearly five years ago, but is still affecting the young woman, devastating her life. The girl, 14-years-old at the time, was allegedly used as 'bait' to catch an accused sexual predator, who was also a student at the school.
A legal brief in the case says a teacher's aide encouraged the girl to go with the boy into the bathroom, so teachers could catch him in the act. Only no teachers came to the rescue, and the girl was allegedly raped. The teacher's aide has since been forced to resign, but there have been no repercussions for the school administrators who allegedly knew about the plan or for the alleged rapist, beyond a few days suspension. CNN's Victor Blackwell speaks to the alleged rape victim who says she feels like she was set up by her teachers.

Each person at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital who came in contact with Thomas Eric Duncan is being given this document to sign. It is a court order from the state of Texas and it includes measures to not go into large public places or travel.
The first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S. is raising troubling questions. Where is the medicine given to Ebola patients previously treated in the U.S.? How did doctors misdiagnose Tomas Duncan when he first sought treatment at a Dallas area hospital? Why did it take so long to remove contaminated items from the apartment where Duncan was staying? Anderson asked CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden those questions and more.
Randi Kaye looks at why Z-Mapp is in such short supply and why producing more takes so long.
