4:00 pm
follow us on twitter. please tweet me. you can tweet the show at cnn. be sure to join us tomorrow here in the situation room. thanks for watching. erin burnett outfront starts right now. >> from the airport, insider threat at home. could terrorists be among airport workers at u.s. airports. how the smallest bomb could take down a massive jum bo jet. donald trump's son is my guest tonight. racial tension boiling over at one university. two top officials out tonight. let's go outfront. ♪ good evening. outfront tonight insider threats at u.s. airports. u.s. security officials concerned about nearly 1 million people whose jobs give them open access behind the security lines
4:01 pm
at the american airports, insiders whose back grounds are vetted by airports and not intelligence agencies as they are 99.9% certain a bomb brought down metro jet a bomb suggested brought down by an airport insider. saying for the first time that a terrorist attack may have brought down that flight tweeting that all russian flights to egypt are still suspended as reuters reports egyptian and russian investigators ignored the fbi's offers for help in the metro jet investigation. renee, what are you learning? >> reporter: what most people may not realize is that tsa depends on more than 400 airports and carriers to do criminal background checks for workers who get that secure access at airports nationwide. airports collect, review and
4:02 pm
verify information. tsa can only vet workers based on data it gets from airports. now tonight there are concerns the current vetting process doesn't do enough to protect domestic flights from an insider threat. officials i have spoken to today say not enough is known about the close to 1 million airport workers with secure access at airports. one u.s. official saying that essentially you know this airport security and said that airport workers who are vetted simply need the information that a passenger would essentially have to provide for tsa pre-check. that is the level of information that they have to provide. look no further than the case in minneapolis. there was an airport worker later found out this individual was killed in 2014 while fighting for isis but prior to that was a worker cleaning the airport in minneapolis.
4:03 pm
>> wouldn't have had direct access to planes. pretty frightening when you think about the screening they go through. i know you have been looking into the fact that there is a direct flight from cairo to the u.s. and people are still checking bags on that flight? >> that's what we understand. the question is if there are some airlines like klm which they are not allowing baggage in the cargo hold why is it that others are. the way one official put it to me is nothing has been proved yet. they have not been able to prove that a bomb 100% brought down this plane and until they do that they are unable to make demands of carriers especially carriers that are not based here in the united states. >> thank you very much. of course, pretty frightening. 99.9% not enough to make the egyptians change the rules on that flight.
4:04 pm
so if the growing consensus is that a bomb took down flight what type of bomb could have been used? >> reporter: that explosion a half pound of dynamite, a conventional explosive used in industrial settings impacts a massive wall. the explosion moving about 19,000 feet per second could easily cripple a passenger aircraft. >> seems too simple. the improvised ones it is a simple process. >> reporter: c-4 more powerful than dynamite. that is how many feet? >> that is over a half pound of c-4 also conventional. in some countries a similar explosive can be bought on the
4:05 pm
black market. in the case of metro jet 9268 u.s. officials believe an explosive may have brought it down that it was placed in the luggage compartment a short time before takeoff. >> all of these are big enough to create a big blast. >> ryan morris worked for the government as an explosives technician and now makes and designs explosives for commercial use and trains law enforcement. in addition to conventional explosives bombs can be made from items purchased in hardware or farm stores and in the right hands -- >> that sounds like a rifle shot -- >> reporter: could bring down a plane. that was regular old icing sugar like you would use to bake a
4:06 pm
cake. and that's imodium nitrate and aluminum powder, basically fertilizer and aluminum. >> 90% of the stuff we have here you don't have to have a license to buy. i can go in a truck and come home with probably 90% of this. >> reporter: in experienced hands the bomb itself easy enough to make. setting them off another matter. >> all i'm going to do is place it right inside. >> reporter: a blasting cap like this one, a smaller explosion used to set off a larger one necessary. the blasting cap itself needs a tiny electrical charge. we used a wire detonator for these demonstrations. only 1.5 volts of electricity needed to set off such large blasts. but anything from a kitchen clock timer to a wrist watch to a phone could be used to send a signal setting off a tiny charge that could lead to so much
4:07 pm
destruction. we are in trip wire's lab where they create some of the fake devices they use in their training process. i want to show you a few of these. laptop computers. you can see the explosive material here, battery there. here is some crayons. that is the explosive material there. nails packed inside of it. this one scared the hell out of me. you pick this thing up and the alarm goes off. they do this when testing dogs out. unbelievable to see the devices and what they do here. one question raised during all of this is whether or not we are giving away too much to people who might want to build bombs. anyone can learn anything they want if they had a mind to online and other places so it is a sobering, sobering experience to come to this facility today. >> thank you very much. incredible report. jim maxwell former special agent bomb technician. paul, if this was a bomb with
4:08 pm
the timers as we were seeing the report, why would they have wanted to go off when it did so soon after takeoff especially if it was timed for a couple of hours meaning it was sit tlg for a while? >> i guess because less can go wrong if you set it off to go soon after takeoff if there was an insider at the airport who could have placed it in the plane. if they set it for longer if it was a timer it could have gone off over russia potentially. i think the explanation is less could go wrong and maybe they wanted it to go up over egypt to hurt egyptian tourism and the egyptian economy. >> miguel was able to show so many explosions with so little. that was detonated from another device not far away. he showed half a pound bomb.
4:09 pm
the half pound bomb set up to know off with sugar icing. >> the people involved in this activity are creatures of habit. what they were successful at using military grade explosives more than likely. there are a whole series of them. those particular types of explosives it has a quality. they are moving at such a great speed the velocity is 20,000 to 27,000 feet per second. that creates what they call the monroe effect. and when it is placed close to a piece of metal it will burn through the metal and cut the metal apart. >> like a zipper. >> the zipper effect is what some engineers refer to when the
4:10 pm
structure fails, when there is a hole in the side of the plane it depressurizes and the plane is moving 600 miles per hour and the plane starts to rip itself apart from the small hole. >> 20,000 to 30,000 feet per second. miguel was showing one at 19. it is incredible the power of the blast. when you see these explosions and the terrifying simplicity, how many of these devices could be out there? it seems like especially to the military grade explosives those are a dime a dozen in certain parts of the world. >> unlimited number of devices. you could just have a stick of dynamite and a timer. that could have the potential if it is large enough to bring down a plane. the key factor is insiders at airports. how many insiders can recruit. that has been the holy grail. they have not managed to do it.
4:11 pm
we have seen a lot more planes being bombed out of the sky. it may be that isis managed to pull this off. >> what does this mean. you look at the united states, nearly 1 million airport security workers vetted by outside contractors, vetted by airports, not vetted through the cia. there was one person with access to american planes who fought for isis. this is a real and present danger. >> the real trick is maintaining a certain level of security and making sure people are vetted. new employees are vetted. >> can you do that with 900,000 people? >> it's a difficult task. tsa is taking that on but there are failures from time to time. we are all human. but to have this consistent you have to be a watch dog. you have to stay on top of this. you have to stay on top of the people you hire. you have to check them out. background checks have to be periodically done to make sure
4:12 pm
they haven't been turned. they haven't been like in many cases people are turned into -- >> they look for people who already have the job. >> thank you both very much. outfront a new poll showing ben carson in a dead heat with donald trump as stories come into question. donald trump's kids front and center to support him at every debate and even at "saturday night live." and a swastika found in a campus bathroom, a revolt at a major university. we are there live tonight. ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪ ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪

4:16 pm
and neck in the first southern contest of the primary season. carson nearly doubling support since the last poll. tonight he is facing serious questions about his past and the republican field is piling on. tom foreman is outfront. >> reporter: even as ben carson is rising in the polls he is falling under attack in a storm of questions about his personal story. >> you put the story out there in the first place so he has the responsibility to back it up. >> i would say it is not so easy on ben. >> reporter: the questions are growing in baltimore. carson says he was caught up in an armed robbery at a fast food joint. >> guy puts the gun in my ribs. i just said i believe that you want the guy behind the counter. >> police have no record of such an incident. at west point carson says he received and rejected an offer for a full scholarship to the military academy. carson clarified it was an informal offer but there is no
4:17 pm
record. and at yale university carson says he took a psychology class where he was singled out for an act of honesty. his campaign says it welcomes the vetting even as it keeps trying to explain away apparent inconsistencies. >> reporter: a fight is central to carson's description of an escape from a violent past saying as a young man he attacked his mother and others. >> i tried to stab someone. >> reporter: cnn could find no one from his younger days who recalled the violent temper but his mother corroborated parts of the story in the 1990s. >> and if our media is no better it is sick. >> and while that may be good enough to rally his fans carson
4:18 pm
says the noise has helped him raise millions it is not enough to back down the questions from the news media and his fellow candidates. >> thank you very much. serious questions conservative radio host ben ferguson. ben carson has centered his campaign on his life story. and on the specifics of this, on his conversion from a young man of incredible violence to a man of profoun faith. these all fit within that narrative. why are there so many inconsistitancies? >> i don't know if it is as much people don't like the way he told the story. look at what he said about west point. the average person out there if you said if you go to college and don't pay anything what would you call that they would call it a scholarship. did he apply to west point? no. did they come after him?
4:19 pm
it would make sense. the guy went to an ivy league school afterwards. i don't think it is inconsistency. he didn't say that he got into west point or applied and got in and didn't go there. he said they recruited him. he was head of rotc with incredible test scores. >> that one might make complete sense. what about others that have been uncorroborated so far. whether you hit your mother with a hammer or stabbed someone is very important if it is untrue. >> and his mom did say in this interview long before he was running for president that that is what has happened. i don't doubt him that this is what happened. i think your friend circle from 50 years ago when you are 12, 13, 14 is pretty small. the idea that you have a ton of witnesses unrealistic. from what we know this happened
4:20 pm
in a close family interaction so you would probably not broadcast that outside of your home that your son tried to stab someone. >> doug? >> i think if somebody tries to stab someone words get around quickly. ultimately the problem is he is not having the conversation with voters that he wants to have without a real long legislative record his life story is critical to his candidacy. all he is doing is taking in coming. obviously hillary clinton supporters haven't been too concerned with her troubles with the truth in the past and her exaggerating her life story. this is central to ben carson's campaign why they have to clean it up as quickly as they can. >> to this point the new polls shows him neck and neck. when you look at how many people have their minds made up, donald trump supporters 33% of them say their minds are made up. that is 33%.
4:21 pm
that number is 12% for ben carson. he has a great risk if the core narrative falls apart. >> donald trump supporters have shown that they are fanatics and they will stay with him. ben carson is a very different candidate. he has the biggest upside to grow and bring in new people. when only 12% are fanatics for you there are a lot of other conservative voters that are willing to look at different candidates whether rubio, ben carson, carly fiorina and move around as things change in the news. he does have the risk but he has the other side which is that people think the media is being unfairly harsh to him and attacking him and trying to bring him down over semantics of words whether scholarship or a free ride i think that may back fire and he may gain ground here. >> what do you think about that especially to the point that ben keeps making going to the west
4:22 pm
point example which is one that does appear to be about semantics. i think a lot of reasonable people could understand what ben carson is saing. it seems to be different than other cases. >> absolutely. the problem that he faces is that there are different examples of this that we are looking at every day it seems to be something new. if he can't get past this he needs to look at this as an opportunity to get past it. if he can't get past it it will have a real impact on his campaign and whether he is treated fairly or unfairly running for president is a hard thing to do. i don't think -- >> and i think the debate is important. if he can answer this and move on and put a period or explanation point i think he will probably be fine. if this continues to drag out week after week with another he said she said moment from his early life stories that will be a problem for him but right now i don't think he is at that point. >> we will see if these debate

4:28 pm
>> mr. president, the president of mexico is here to see you. >> send him in. >> i brought you the check for the wall. >> donald trump helped boost ratings for "saturday night live" as the republican's family watched from the front row. his children playing a familiar role promoting their father. eric tweeting out a snapshot at the stage before the show as ivanka shared a photo of her. >> your daughter, the secretary of interior is here. >> perfect timing. >> we are ahead of schedule and under budget. >> the eldest daughter taking center stage as she did in june which trump launched his campaign. >> it is my pleasure to introduce to you today a man who i have loved and respected my entire life. >> the 34-year-old business woman who handles acquisitions for the trump organization also runs her own line of jewelry and
4:29 pm
clothing and plays a major role in the trump campaign's outreach to women voters. >> he has always supported and encouraged women and has proven that over decades through his employment practices, through his hiring practices. he would be amazing for women in this country. he would be incredible for women in this country. >> eric is the youngest of donald's children. at 31 he is also an executive in the trump organization, oversees trump winery and hitting the trail to bolster the trail. >> the one thing my father does is picks incredible people. >> reporter: for a candidate known for tough rhetoric and controversial comments, trump's kids on the campaign trail have even won over some competitors. >> look at donald trump, his relationship with his kids. he has character because he has adult kids who clearly turned out praeetty well. >> reporter: cnn, new york.
4:30 pm
>> and outfront eric trump, executive vice president of development and acquisitions for the trump organization and close adviser to his father's campaign. her father in illinois tonight big rally. that state has not voted republican since 1988. what is his strategy? >> we have had a lot of business dealings in illinois. we have a great project in chicago. this is a great place. the hotels time and time again have done well. he is an unconventional candidate. i can't walk down the street without people yelling at me tell your father to go all the way. maybe people who wouldn't be traditionally republicans. they like the fact that he is a personable guy. they just like him as a person. >> so "saturday night live" at biggest ratings in nearly four years on saturday something i'm sure your father is aware of. he tracks that sort of thing. the hollywood reporter called it toothless and uncomfortable. the new york post asked for
4:31 pm
"snl" purposefully sabotaged your father. what do you think? >> i sat for the front row. we were laughing and laughing. my father is an incredibly funny guy. i think he did that role amazingly well. they were getting other candidates. >> you don't think it went too far with larry david yelling he is a racist? >> i thought it was a great ice breaker. you always have shots. he was dancing with the glasses. what could have been more saturday night live than that skit? it showed a great side to him. >> so your father as i said will know what the ratings are. he remembers that sort of thing. he spends a lot of time talking about the numbers and often the
4:32 pm
polls in case our viewers have forgotten let me just play a little clip of your dad. >> but we're really winning. we're winning everything, every state. we're winning everything. i'm leading every poll nationwide. i'm leading every state. today is the 100th day that we have been number one in every single poll. you know we are winning in iowa. we are winning and winning big. >> you're chuckling a little bit. your siblings are among closest advisers. do you spend a lot of time talking about the polls? >> we do. we should be proud of the polls. here is a guy in real estate his entire life. he is not a politician. he came into the process and is winning. i wish this country had a little more of that leader where you talk about winning. he doesn't need to run for
4:33 pm
president of the united states. we have plenty of work to do. we have an amazing company. he wants to see this country win. i can see that and i have seen it in his yiz feyes for years. why are we always losing and losing every war? that's why he is putting aside his life. if he can be that good of a cheerleader on the national stage as he is in doing what we saw talking about how he is doing so well in the polls. every poll has him ahead i think the country would be in a great spot. >> has he had time to prepare for this debate? >> it's in his wheelhouse. this is business, job creation. i'm sure a lot of it will focus on the national deficit and major problems we have in health care reform. this is in his wheelhouse. when you talk about business and numbers and deficits there would be no one better to run this country. >> have you working with him i
4:34 pm
know you and i have had a chance talking about the tax plan and more specifics coming specifically about cuts and other things. is that something that you talk to him about that you work on? >> i don't get that involved with policy. i see him every day which i think is a much more relevant situation. there would not be government waste. you would have the brightest people. i read an article about $43 million being spent on a gas station that couldn't open in afghanistan. natural gas. that would not happen. you read about the million dollars in guantanamo bay soccer fields being built for prisoners. that would not happen under him. >> your father talks a lot about money. yo you're talking about money now. here is a clip of that. >> i don't need anybody's money. i'm not using lobbiests, not using donors. i'm really rich. >> we are going to work so hard.
4:35 pm
i am going to spend whatever money is necessary. i don't care. i seem to have one great power if i could sell it i would be 100 times richer than i am and i am rich. >> also, funny. those are all real, not "saturday night live." you say he made you learn the value of a dollar. you didn't grow up talking or thinking like that. it doesn't sound that way like he is always talking about how rich he is. >> isn't it part of the american dream? we want to be a nation where you can get rich and build tremendous wealth out of virtually nothing. really for us we did not take vacation. we worked from a very young age we were on construction jobs and i was demoing walls and running wire and everything else you can possibly imagine. those are really the building blocks for jobs now. we are the first people there every day, the last people to leave. we got paid minimum age as young
