Twenty-three year old Alexander Ciccolo, the son of a Boston police officer, is being held without bail in Springfield, Massachusetts, on charges that he was plotting a terrorist attack on college campuses. At a court hearing, the government played a video of Ciccolo talking to an FBI agent after his arrest. He embraced ISIS in the interview and said "Allah is the most high."

Reporter David Boeri of Here & Now contributor WBUR went to the Springfield courthouse where Ciccolo made his first appearance.
