"inside story." >> this is aljazeera america, live from new york city, i'm tony harris. not in official custody. the suspected ringleader of the paris attacks was not arrested during the early morning raid. picture proof. isil claims that this is the bomb that took down a russian airliner screening for syrians. the white house issues a warning, and out of compliance, the world anti-doping ax deals with russia's alleged cheating and what it means for the
7:01 pm
athletes. gunfire and explosions once again rang out in france today. this time during a massive police and military raid just outside of paris. at least two people were killed. and eight others taken into custody in an operation to capture the alleged mastermind of last friday's massacre. but tonight, we don't know if he was killed in the raid. we have the latest from the city on edge. >> french leaders have spoken of a war in the massacre, in the northern paris suburb of saint denis, there was one.
7:02 pm
the prosecutor said that he believed that he was in the at a. >> he's suspected of carrying out a very great number of terrorist attacks, and that's in the interest of the islamic state. this witness received on the 16th of november, and with great caution. we verified all of the zeta, the bank accounts. >> 4:30 am, the police fail when they try to blow the door open. the door is reinforced and the gunmen inside are alerted. and the gun battle is on. in the first 1 hour 15 minutes, 5,000 rounds are fired. a female suicide bomber, believe say french media, to be
7:03 pm
the cousin of abaaoud blows herself up by a suicide vest. and the owner of the apartment is detained. >> some people asked me to put them up for three days, and i did, it's normal, i don't know where they came from, and i don't know anything, if i had known, do you think that i would have done it? >> french authorities say that it's the command cell for the killing of the 129. in the other attacks on the bataclan concert hall, one used a phone to text, we have left, we have begun. that phone was found in a nearby trash bin, and the police trained the message to the area where the battle erupted today. president hollande praise the the security forces. >> these actions confirm to us that we're at war, a war against a terrorist who has decided to declare war on us. >> the revelation that abaaoud
7:04 pm
was from the islamic state is seen as a major security he breach by the french. >> a few months ago, they explained that he was part of the terrorist plot that was foiled in belgium. this interview is true, then it would mean that he managed to go back to syria and back to europe. it would be our failure. >> hours after the gun battle, nervous parisians reluctantly say that a war is on, but not a conventional war. >> yes, it's a special war. >> french authorities are also saying that abdelsalam, a fugitive in connection with the friday paris attacks, his brother blew himself up with a suicide vest. and abdelsalam was taken when he called friends in belgium to
7:05 pm
pick him up, and he took a car from france to belgium, and he was also deigned. so you have the possibility that there's one fugitive, and possibly more, and it's far from a over. >> why have police so far not been able to identify those inside of that flat yet and say definitely, whether the mastermind of the attacks in paris was there? >> one would think this many hours after the gun battle, they would be able to, but the fact is, when you look at the damage done to that apartment, it's horrendous, the intensity of this gunfight. and the french authorities say that this was the most fierce gun battle that they have been involved? in decades. when the bomb exploded the suicide bomb vest, it collapsed the floor and some of the walls came down and some of the
7:06 pm
police were injured. and some of the bodies were shredded, and parts of it went out onto the street. and there are pieces in there, and they cannot identify how many died and who they were. and it's very important that they were able to do it very quickly now and find out whether they have this mastermind, whether he died in the apartment and whether he's still on the run planning another attack. >> thank you, dana, and we'll look at the military response to the paris attacks, and how it's affect being the situation in syria. we'll have that for you in 10 minutes time. meanwhile, thousands took to the streets in a largely muslim march, and their town is a breeding ground for the attacks much like the ones in paris. more on the candlelight vigil from brussels. >> they're coming to pay tribute, the belgium police are
7:07 pm
taking no chances, checking everyone for weapons and explosives. community leaders are holding a vigil here in this district in brussels. it's partly in memory of the victims of the attacks. >> the really terrorists aresters. it's no worse here than anywhere else, but you people in tv make out that mollenbeek is bad. it's like anywhere else, he says. but in proportion to the size of its population, more belgiums have left to fight in syria than any other european country. and some of the most high-profile attacks in europe,
7:08 pm
have had some lynch to molen beck. they're taking place under the windows of the very apartment where two of the attackers lived. for salam, he blew himself up in paris, but his younger brother is on the run. and if you look at the windows of the apartment, the family lit a candle. in another brussels neighborhood, a mother of four asks people to pray not just for the victims of the attacks, but for the parents, whose sons became the assailants. the mother who cries cries the same tears, whether it's the child who dies in the attacks or the child who committed the attacks. these are the same tears of suffering. her own 19-year-old son died in the war in syria two years ago. the immigration, the rise of
7:09 pm
preachers to it blame. if you live in a community where muslims stay to themselves, there's no integration with other cultures, and there are extremists who pose ideas, she says. but she says that political hypocrisy by western nations and lack of action to stop syria's civil war are squarely to blame. the politicians of the world power should soften their message and stop thinking that they control the world. they decide when there is war, and who they help. our children left because they saw nobody was really helping syria, she says. but it seems like authorities have little time for that political debate right now. the evening prior to the peace vigil, anti-terror police were ticking down doors just a few
7:10 pm
blocks away. that was the ongoing manhunt for abdelsalam. he's the only known survivor of the hit squad for friday's attacks in paris, and police warn that he still may be armed and dangerous. and that really is one of the key questions, tony, where is salah abadu salam? we know that he came back to brussels, and despite the nationwide manhunt, he has not been be found. and today, certainly in this part of brussels, we have heard no word from the police or the prosecutor's office, that any further raids have been carried out based on intelligence, trying to find him. so the question is, where is he, and what kind of plan did he put in place to lie low or stay the police? and does he have accomplices
7:11 pm
hiding him, shielding him, and what's his next plan, tony? >> look, here's my question, so what can muslim parents like the ones in your piece do to counteract or contradict the narrative that attracts young people toward violence? >> well, as you were saying, in that piece, we were talking to the mother of a belgium foreign fighter, and she has been reaching out since her son died in syria to other mothers, and she's not the bearer of good news. she said that the problem has been years in the making, and not only the issue of rescrum, and not only allowing fax,s like al qaeda, but the social exclusion, poor schools, run down neighborhoods, and unemployment, those problems have been years in the making, and hence the solution is years
7:12 pm
in coming, she says, but she says that she believes it has to be a bottomup approach, involving teachers and parents, and it can't be imposed by the politicians. many no mistake, before there's a solution, many more mothers are going to be crying tears of suffering, both for sons who have died and victims killed. >> i'll make those points, and put them to our guests coming up in just a couple of minutes. carl in brussels. isil has released new photos that the group says prove it was responsible for bringing down a russian jet over egypt last month. the pictures were published in the group's english language magazine, lisa stark joins us, and i'm sure that they will show the picture in a moment, but it looks like a soda can. how is isil saying that it did this? >> it does look like a soda
7:13 pm
can. it was packed with explosives, and you can see other components that look like they could being part of a bomb. but what's missing is a timor. we're not sure if it really was a bomb, and if so, how it may have gone off. we have no independent confirmation except for this photo published in the isil magazine. they claim that they were able to get this bomb onboard the russian jetliner at sherm el-sheikh airport. and they say that it could bring down a plane. we spoke to our anti-terrorism expert. >> in a case like this, it could have been in a location where it was precisely placed or luckily policed but it did enough damage for the wind and the structure itself to be decimated and take the plane down. >> reporter: isil claimed that initially, it wanted to
7:14 pm
put the bomb on a plane connected to the u.s.-led coalition, and then it decided to switch to the russian jetliner after moscow had it's own fight in syria. and these are all claims, and they believe that the bomb did bring down the plane. >> well, it gets your attention, and does this raise concerns about something like this happening at a u.s. airport? >> well, it clearly raisings concerns in the u.s., and jj johnson was speaking at an unrelated event and pointed out that after the russian crash, before we knew that it was an explosive or suspected that it was, he ordered additional security measures overseas, but what about here in the u.s.? the tsa tells me today that actually in the last year, they have taken steps to try to reduce an insider threat, an airport worker who might have a nefarious idea to get around
7:15 pm
airport security. and these workers have to be checked every two years on a criminal background check, and they have more inspections of them. and they take a look at them with bomb sniffing dogs, and they have checked them against the terrorist watch list, but tony, there's nothing approved and if it is proved that the plane was brought down by a dog, it remains a tempting target. and vigilance is critical. >> lisa stark in washington, thank you. and isil claims that it has executed two hostages, one from norway and one from china. they can not k the killing but they have no doubt. they have no reaction from beijing. but isil is not carrying the most attacks in the globe. it's boko haram. they were responsible for 6600
7:16 pm
deaths. and isil had over 6,000, and together, they make up most of the terrorism deaths worldwide. and it appears that boko haram may be financial for another attack today. nigeria's second largest city, dozens were wounded and it comes after a blast killed people. coming up, the attacks on paris focus the world's attention on fighting isil, but can the players focus on strategy and a major ruling from the anti-doping agency. what it means to athletes and the 2016 summer olympics. picks.
7:17 pm
7:18 pm
i just had a horrible nightmare. my company's entire network went down, and i was home in bed, unaware. but that would never happen. comcast business monitors my company's network 24 hours a day and calls and e-mails me if something, like this scary storm, takes it offline. so i can rest easy. what. you don't have a desk bed? don't be left in the dark. get proactive alerts 24/7. comcast business.
7:19 pm
built for business. >> the u.s. welcomes france's involvement in conducting the airstrikes against isis. but jamie mcintyre joins us live from the pentagon to explain. >> reporter: you might think with russia targeting isil-held territory in syria, that the u.s. might be able to coordinate or cooperate with moscow, and why he has deep reservations about russia's deep and reckless campaign. >> reporter: the pentagon says that it's not just how russia is striking but it's how they are carried out. with sloppy targeting, little
7:20 pm
concern for innocent syrians trapped in a hellish war zone. russia boasted that it deployed a cold war bombing to punish isil. >> ten ships in the air at one time, or 12 or a more, it's very old fashioned, and those are the tactics needed only if you don't present the technology, and the skills and the capabilities to conduct the precision strikes on the coalition stuff. >> reporter: the colonel contrasted it with this week's u.s. airstrikes, against fuel trucks that are sitting ducks parked in the syrian desert. they destroyed more than 100 of the trucks in spectacular fax, were conducted only after leaflets were dropped, informing the drivers that airstrikes were imminent, and warning them to get far away.
7:21 pm
they made sure that the drivers got the message. >> we are not in this to kill civilians, but to stop isil. and the trucks, though they're being used for operations that support isil, the truck drivers themselves are probably not members of isil, they're probably just civilians, maybe smugglers, but that are not really members of isil, so many of them have gotten the message that smuggling oil for isil is more dangerous business now than last week. >> so president obama left the door open to join russian airstrikes. >> we're going to see if russia does end up devoting more attention to targets that are isil targets, and if it does so, that's something that we want. >> reporter: the pent gone just as quickly slammed it shut. >> the u.s. military of course has the greatest aviators on
7:22 pm
earth, so they're capable of flying with anybody, and that said, we have no plans for coordinated operations with the russians >> reporter: so the pentagon is still assessing what russia bombed in and around iraq, and whether any civilians were killed. but now it does not appear that russia hit any targets that were on the u.s. starting list. >> pj crowley is the former assistant secretary of state for public affairs, and joining me from washington d.c., it's good to have you back on the show, and russia's foreign minister reiterated that the west must stop calling for the removal of president bashar al-assad. and whether we get to the place where we have greater cooperation between the u.s. and washington or will this be a greater sticking point? can we table the assad and take up the position of destroying isil? >> well, i don't think that we can ignore it.
7:23 pm
but i think that john kerry is leading a process that will create a path towards a political transition and leave the question of bashar al-assad's future to later in that process. the united states hasn't changed the position that the conflict is substantially about bashar al-assad. but for the moment, it's willing to gain not only russia's military support, but significantly, russia's political support. that in fact there has to be a political transition, and at that crucial point, [ speaking russian ] has recognized that it cant prop up assad forever. >> so the president has really heavily criticized by saying isil, isis was contained. and you'll recall that from last week, but let me ask you this, about you sees sinjar, and the key roads that connect raqqa to mosul, if you have
7:24 pm
essentially secured the baiji refinery and some of the other towns in iraq, and if you in essence have encircled ramadi, aren't you making progress at choking isis? >> well, you are making progress in the sense that the islamic state holds less territory today than it did a year ago, and obviously, that's crucial to the delegitimatization of the islamic state. and so that's all for the good. i don't think that we should be surprised that the islamic state under attack by 65 nations has now decided that it needs to extend this defense beyond the borders of iraq and syria, and we obviously saw that in paris, in the downing of the russian airliner in egypt, and also in beirut. i mean, there's a concern that the islamic state right now is
7:25 pm
the flavor of the moment. and there are a variety of non-state actors around the region that are identifying themselves with the islamic state. but it still goes back to this issue of territory. with the islamic state, we have to shrink their territory and reach that tipping point, and then they lose the current support that they have on both sides of the iraqi-syrian border. >> one reach you want territory, you want to tax the people and run an economy in the oil fields so, clearly, this is not a war about tanks, right? it's a war about ideas, and is it the idiology that makes isil and terrorism attractive? is it the money that disaffected young people think that they can carry out the attacks, and better to die a martyr than a beggar? i just want to better understand what we're against and up against in combating this group. >> i mean, all of the above, tony, and i wouldn't discount
7:26 pm
the fact that it's surprising, we have to acknowledge that the islamic state is sort of an army, and they have been able to defend territory for longer than i would, for example, have envisioned. is that's a meaningful component, separate the islamic state from al qaeda. and they have been able to gain meaningful territory up until now. but while there's a military next do this, it's political, and economics does factor into this. for example, the islamic state is able to attract this because they pay more than the other guys. and i do think that ultimately, to destroy the islamic state, you have to get this aspect of isis as an idea. and that's going to be something that is a challenge for the region supported by the united states. >> okay, one more quick one for you. how important is the ceasefire
7:27 pm
in the fight against isis, and how do we get there? >> it's going to take awhile. i know that in vienna this past weekend, the sent out an aggressive timetable, an interim government within six months, and election within 18 months, and this is going to be really challenging, and what you might see, ceasefires in various pockets. and the holdouts will be the islamic state, and probably the front. why? because ultimately, as you do gather momentum, you know that the two groups that will not be invited to the table are the islamic state and al news are a, and we can expect them to resist. >> good to have you on the program. pj, good to have you and still on the program, track being the suspects, how the investigators are able to trace the leads from the paris attacks and launch a successful raid.
7:28 pm
and plus, racial tensions at another pledge campus and another hunger strike.
7:29 pm
7:30 pm
>> so after the massive military strike by the police, the tip that cleared that abdelhamid was holed up outside of paris, and until then, he was believed to be in syria,
7:31 pm
that led to a gunfight that led to 5,000 rounding fired. and at least two were killed. eight more taken into custody, and the authorities have yet to identify the dead. a raid took place in the north of paris. and adam has a play-by-play of what went down. >> a long day here in sandania, saintdenis, a northern suburb of paris, and they were looking for suspects tied to the attacks on friday, and it led up to a much more explosive event than be they could have been prepared for. the police began moving in before down this morning, carrying any machine guns through the northern paris suburbs. the sue aid bombers had detonated their explosives on friday night.
7:32 pm
they were heard as the special forces moved in on the apartments. the prosecutors said that the target of the morning raid was one of europe's most wanted suspects. abdelsalam, and he's allegedly the chief architect of the friday attacks. a woman, or noted to be his cousin, blew herself up during the standoff. and a policeman was killed is it and several others injured. several people were arrested. the police have detained the owner of the apartment where this morning's raid took place. >> i found out that it was at my house. someone asked me a favor, and i did them. someone asked me to put up two people for three days, and i did them a favor, i don't know anything, and if i had known, do you think that i would have
7:33 pm
done it? >> there was no confirmation on whether abaaoud was caught or killed. the police were edgy, pointing their guns at us as we approached the area. the people didn't know what was happening when they heard all of the explosions, especially since the stadium nearby was attacked on friday. >> for three minutes, it was extremely loud, more than 3 pun bullets. back and forth on both sides, not just the police, but both sides. >> you can tell how big the operation is, there were more than 1 dozen police vehicles to carry in the hundreds of officers here who have been here for more than eight hours. >> despite the massive show of force, there's concern that the fugitives from a cell, bigger than once believed, may still pose a serious security threat for the company. after the police opened it up, the security experts were comb
7:34 pm
thug the rubble of the apartment where they conducted the major aspects of the raid. and they want to see if they can find out any information, any evidence to finally allow them to close in on the fugitives, still at large, because the people don't feel safe, and all across paris, they wonder if the suspects are going to do more violence. >> from the department of homeland security, he joins us from philadelphia. and jack, good to have you back on the program. when an is attack like this happens, is it by definition an intelligence failure? >> it could be. and in this case, it appears that some of these individuals were known to u.s. tense, and perhaps those names were not shared with the french. we don't know why that happened. and it will be obviously the focus of an after-action
7:35 pm
review, but not every time an attack happens means that there was an intelligence failure. >> gotch a. so jack, i want you to explain to me, break down the anatomy of an investigation like this. friday happens in paris, and how do the various security agencies respond? >> sure, as we heard just a few minutes ago, right now in saint-denis, the french are doing an investigation, and combing through the public and looking for clues, and in addition to that, they're doing a very wide, concentric search with the individuals who were killed and caught. and that not only involves forensics, but computer forensics, and going out and talking to as many people that may know these individuals who were involved in this attack. you heard yes, sir, when we had the earlier attacks, that they found some passports of the individual shooters, so they're going to look for that kind of
7:36 pm
documentary evidence, that's called document exploitation, and they're going to look at those, and go to the neighborhoods and look at phone records and cellphones, and track all of those calls and cellphones, and they're going to go to computers, and harvest awful the information from the computers. who were they talking to? that's the kind of work that the police are doing at this time, tony. >> you're chasing what is not known at the moment and racing against time. you don't know what plans were in place, and you just don't know, so it's a race against time, isn't it? >> it is, and in addition to doing the forensic analysis, tony, the law enforcement in france, and the intelligence people involved, are also looking over the horizon to
7:37 pm
make sure that there are no other attacks percolating, so part of the investigation is seeing how it happened and who did it, but also, who else is out there that may be in contact with these perpetrators, as they plan the next big attack. >> you know, jack, i'm hearing in some of the big interviews, that part of the problem is not just in getting the information, not in getting the intelligence, but in having enough bodies to connect the dots, to do the analysis, and that sounds like -- we remember when that might have been a problem in the united states, and we think that it has been corrected for the most part. but it seems to be a problem in france today. >> well, certainly, when you have a situation like what's happened in france, when we have situations that happened in the united states like 9-1-1, the intelligence analysts, the analytical core that works at the intelligence agencies on both sides of the atlantic, they put in very long
7:38 pm
hours, and people are sleeping in their offices right now. it sounds like all hands on deck, general quarters, and you have a looming feeling that something might be coming next, so you have to keep working at t. >> one last one for you. sleeper cells like the ones in paris or lone wolves both concern you and which concern you the most. >> i look at this through the optic of a domestic intelligence officer, and i'm always with the lone rolfs more than the sleeper cell because they are harder to find. he can decide to self radicalize and he could be watching your tv show right now and say, i think that i should be part of this for whatever reason, and he decides to go out and get an automatic weapon and walk into a mall or airport or anybody and shoot people. you can never find enough
7:39 pm
information on a person that literally self radicalizes in his basement. >> jack, department of homeland security, joining us from philadelphia. and good to have you on the program. president obama is threatening to veto a gop bill that would require stricter security measures for iraqis and syrian refugees entering the united states, and the white house is calling for a vote on thursday. and libby casey has more now from washington. >> reporter: ramped up tensions on capitol hill over the syrian refugee program. >> the u.s. should move to definitely suspend resettling syrian refugees here. the records don't exist in a war-torn syria to vet them with confidence. >> president obama, traveling in the philippines definitelied the program, and he said that stoking fears could recruit isil followers.
7:40 pm
>> we are not well served when we descend into fear and panic. we don't make good decisions if it's based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks. >> presidential candidate, senator ted cruz, took the criticism personally. >> i would encourage you, mr. president, come back and insult me to my face. >> it's lunacy. >> i think that it's quite rich that he chose to make both of those insults on foreign soil, while he was abroad, attacking me and attacking everyone else in this country who believes that we should not be bringing in tens of thousands of syrian muslim refugees. that the obama administration cannot vet to determine whether or not they're isis terrorists. >> cruz is among the ranks of republicans who say that syrian
7:41 pm
christians should be let into the united states, but not muslims. but house speaker, paul ryan, said that religious screening is not part of the republican bill hitting the floor on thursday. >> wel we'll not have a religs test, only a syrian test. >> the bill will be stopped in its tracks until it's safe. >> it will mean a pause in the program until we can be certain beyond any doubt that those coming here are not a threat. it's that simple, and i don't think that it's asking too much. >> the u.s. is only taking in about 2,000 refugees out of 4 million registered with the united nations, and the process already takes 18-24 months. but ryan says that it should be tougher. the house bill says that the fbi director must certificate that a refugee has undergone a background investigation and is not a threat to the u.s. then the heads of the fbi and homeland security and the director of national intelligence must unanimously
7:42 pm
certificate to congress that the person is not a threat. homeland security must report to congress on the program monthly, and it's inspector general must review all certificate cases annually. but the top democrat on the house security committee said that the vetting process is already rigorous, and it includes background checks and perm interviews. >> we will not lose sight of the fact that three-quarters of the refugee population are women and children. >> the president has already promised to veto the bill. >> authorities in minnesota today released the identities of two police officers involved in the shooting death of an un armed black man this week. mark ringenberg has been put on administrative sleeve. 34-year-old jamar clarke was shot in the head. witnesses say that he was handcuffed at the time. and police say that that's not true, and the shooting took place in a struggle.
7:43 pm
the fbi has opened up a civil rights investigation. college protests and inequality are spreading across the country. last week, the university of missouri president was pressured into resigning over complaints about racism. and now a similar situation is unfolding at the university of kansas. they say that they are doing something to change it. and we're there where a meeting is getting underway and the fate of student leadership. andy. >> reporter: tony, off with their heads was the battle cry last week at the university of missouri, and it's the same here in kansas, but for now, it's just the student body government that's meeting right now where the real drama is. >> we're aware, we're powerful and you can not keep us away. >> reporter: a town hall meeting on creating better racial harmony on the kansas
7:44 pm
campus got hot last week, when the student's signs took over and demanded a more diverse faculty. and they faced off against the school's black chancellor. >> i've been here for eight years, and i hear them every single day. >> it was just the latest in the racially charged campus demonstrations nationwide. but now a new twist. a group of senators in the school's student body government is demanding that their president, vice president, and chief of staff all resign. >> they have not done anything to combat the institutionalized race civil that's built in, to make them exclusive ear, whether or not it was created that way in the 60s. >> he said that it's still dominated by white organizations, and the call for minority representation didn't just spring up in the last week. >> they are trying to make it like like this is a couple of
7:45 pm
students that are upset and trying to dismantle the university, but this is not what's hang. it's the culmination of a yearing and longer than that. >> . >> some students say that it's not just here, but other places,. >> this is not just free speech being current aid. but people who have not been able to use their free speech and their rights. >> they issued a joint statement saying that they're taking it seriously, but will that be enough to save their jobs in if the student leaders don't resign, they could be impeached. and by the way, the protesters say that they don't want to get
7:46 pm
the student athletes involved like the way they good last week in missouri. they don't want to see mass protests, but the to see it done at the student government level. >> anything from the administration there at the university? >> well, they're keeping their distance from all of this, but they have announced that they're going to form a committee of faculty, staff and students to come up with a plan to address these issues, and have it ready to go by the end of january. >> andy, thank you. the company behind the keystone oil pipeline to the united states has withdrawn its application for nebraska's approval. they said that they need more time to plan. earlier this month, president barack obama denied the finishing of the building of the 8 billion-dollar pipeline. it was designed to carry crude oil from alberta through the we know united states and down to the gulf of mexico. compliance from the world
7:47 pm
anti-doping agency. what it could mean for the olympic athletes.
7:48 pm
7:49 pm
>> pretty dramatic stuff. police in greece used teargas to break up protesters. in athens, demonstrating under planned pension and tax reforms. under the plan, taxes will go up and tax breaks will go away.
7:50 pm
rush app's anti-doping program was found non-compliant. and they found widespread doping among russian athletes. and does that mean that they're out of the olympics in rio next year? >> well, tony, that's still not totally clear. what's obvious after all of this, the russians have a lot of work to do, and they don't have much time to do it now. they don't have much time to get into compliance once again. the meeting was with the group, watto, the anti-doping agency from around the world. to find out if athletes are in compliance with all of regulations. in a scathing report earlier this month, they found that the russian's character and field program is cheating in just
7:51 pm
