learning that the counter terrorism air strike killed a man that was a former californian and a member of al qaeda and a prominent spokesperson who has come up with videos threaten ing threatening this adminis with more attacks against the u.s. over the course of several more than a decade ago. we do expect to hear from the president shortly. in terms of the tone, we expect to hear from him, the press president is feeling tremendous sorrow, and he is taking full response foshlt the op and the press secretary said that no words can fully express our regret over this terrible traged again, president obama is expected here in the briefing room in matter of moments. >> peter, we will await there, expr of the hostages, but they were

7:04 am
9/11 in 2001, matt. >> and we should mention that much of the information was classified until now. the president deciding to declassify that information and now share it with the op and mik, stand by. >> and we are awaiting the president's remarks, and as we correspondent richar us on the phone, and he is in the individuals involved dr. warren weinstein who was long-time held captive in the pakistan region as well as the two american al qaeda adam gagan and warren winestein. >> yes. warren winestein helped with the
7:05 am
poor, and several videos emerged showing dr. winestein, and we have not heard much of him as of late, and this is a surprising i had not heard this in the past that there had been these drone strike, and where there had been possible casualties, and so it is a surprise announcement about not just the deaths of the american hostages, but the death another american linked to al qaeda and so three americans, and onetwo of them host one of them militants. >> and richard engel on the phone from italy, and now going back to the white house where the president is expected to peter, i want to come back to in the statement that was re we will do o sure it is not repeted, and they are conducting a thorough independent statement to see what to do to prevent it, and
7:06 am
this is going to razise a lo >> yes, a that is correct, matt. and it is called the uniquely tragic nature of the operation, the strikes that killed the american, and the two innocent victims, including dr. warren winestein and the italian as well. and the white house as part of the statement makes note of the and consistent with the counter terrorism policy, and they likely expect the new debate of and cont drone strikes to be renewed, >> and we understand that there were two cia drone strikes that resulted in the deaths. these happened in january in the hindu kush in pakistan and we are learning about it april 23rd, and do you have any in the timing of this now, and why did the president decide to declassify now? >> well, that is what we are waiting to hear, and why we are
7:07 am
waiting to the hear from the president with three months passing since these operations were taking place, and this is deliberate by the and we received a statement at 9:23 eastern time, and we we president would be coming out to engel said that he is not familiar with the casualties as strikes, and some people may be questioning why this is released at the same time of adam gadahn's killing at the same time of warren winestein's, and perhaps to buffet any use of drones in situations like this. >> and peter, we don't know if that were killed had been notified prior to this, and they are probably learning of we are? >> we don't know that yet, but
7:08 am
have been contacted in advance of this, and there was a time to terms,ed a learned these fact great confidence right now. we had heard from dr. warren wine including one in 2013 where he he felt abandon and forgotten by the obama administration, and winestein said in that video second term was in a position to make the hard decisions to go after, to go after al qaeda members and to try to find the american hostages like himself. matt and savannah. >> and another issue with the timing is to establishing the identities a confidence that it i who were kill and something that the administration had to do before releasing it publicly. and over to mik, and mik, can you tell us about the targeting when the cia releases a targeting information, because
7:09 am
they were going after a co >> yes, and according to the white house statement, itself, they did not know when the airstrikes were planned, conducted or launched that the american hostage the or the italian hostager or the americanal those locations in the hindu kush region of far eastern afghanistan when they launched the arir strike. they did not realize that the american turned al qaeda adam gadahn was there at the time. they were specifically going after clusters, centers, operatives there in eastern afghanistan when these air strikes were conducted. one, the fact that they were able to conceal and hold dr. winestein and the italian since 2011 and the italian taken
7:10 am
hostage in 2013 shows just how difficult it sis to sort out t individuals at any given location much less find the hostages themselves. it is a very rugged part of afghanistan, and quite frankly, the border there with pakistan and the enemy there, al qaeda, transverses easily across the borders between afghanistan and and have really had the protection in most cases of lo so it appears that they had good intelligen going after centers of al qaeda operations, but they had no clue that the americans, including two al qaeda members and the italian were conducted when the air strikes were conducted on january 14th and 19th. >> thank you, mik. and we a president to ep te
7:11 am
room which he should do in over we are getting is previous li classified and now d by the obama administration is that three americans, one innocent hostage and two americans who had actually defected to al qaeda have been killed in separate airstrikes in january, the 14th, and 19th, along with an italian national, and two of those innocent, and collateral damage to air strikes conducted by drones. and the president is going to >> strikes that we have just learned that the cia ordered and travel area between pakistan and afghanistan, and couple of the names are familiar to the viewers. dr. warren winestein who is a usaid contractor held since
7:12 am
name that is notorious who is a propagandaist for al qaeda and appearing in videos inspiring the 2007 video that osama bin laden released around 9/11. peter about the timing of the information, and why they deou moment, and perhaps independent confirmation by some outside president is coming down the briefing room, and let's hear what he has to say. >> this morning, i want to express our grief an condolences to the familys of two hostages. one american, dr. warren winestein, and an italian, geovanne la porto who were killed in a counter terrorism attack by the u.s.
7:13 am
they were aid workers who were de people. after warren was abducted by the al qaeda in 2011, i advised the team to do everything possible to bring him home safely, and we worked tirelessly to do so and we worked closely with the italian allies on behalf of geovanne since he was taken in we have worked since 9/11 to save lives in terrorist attacks and that determination to protect innocent lives makes the loss of these two men painful for all of us. based on the intelligence that we have obtained, we believe that a u.s. counter terrorism
7:14 am
campaign targeting a compound in pakistan/afghanistan border region accidentally killed warren and geovanne this past january. earlier i spoke with warren's wife elaine and the prime minister of italy. as a husband and father, i cannot imagine the anguish that the winestein and the la porto families are e enduring today. i realize there are no words that can ever equal their loss. i know that there is nothing that i can ever do or ease their heartache, and today, i system systemply want to say this, as commander in chief, i take full responsibility for the mistake that took the lives of warren unit offer our deepest apologies to the
7:15 am
as soon as we discover the cause of the deaths, i ordered this information to be declassified and be ordered to be public so that the familys know the truth. and even though some of the efforts have to be s succeed, the united states is a dem kraocracy, and de openness in good times and bad. the assessment is a that this operation is fully consistent with the guidelines that we conduct attack s in east, because it is the home of al qaeda's leadership, and based on the intelligence that we had obtain ed including hundreds of hours of surveillance, we believed that it was an al qaeda compound, and that no civilians were present, and that capturing the terrorist did take out dangerous members
7:16 am
of al qaeda. but what we did not know tragically is that al qaeda was hiding in the presence warren and giovanni. it is a cruel and truth that in the fog of geography and war that mistakes, and sometimes deadly mistakes can occur, but america apart from many other nations, and one of thin makes us exceptional is the willingness to confront squarely the imperfections, and then to learn from our mistakes. already i have directed a full we will identify the lessons learn ded from this trage we will do our utmost to ensure and we will continue to do everything we can to prevent the
7:17 am
loss of innocent lives and not just innocent americans, but all innocent lives in our counter terrorism operations. today we join their families and friends in honoring warren and giovanni, two humanitarians who came from different countries, but who were united by a spirit of service. for decades warren lived the ideals of the country serving with the peace corps and later with the international agency for development. he devoted his life across africa and southwest he was a loving hu and grandfather who willingly left the comforts of home to help the people of pakistan. was a usaid contractor to help pakistanis to escape terror.
7:18 am
giovanni's ideals took him around the world to hayit t with pakistan and the people, and believed passionately that he could make a difference in giovanni's service reflected the commitment of the italian people, our great allies and friend dignity of the people around the world, and today, it is a remind over the bonds of friendship of our country, and the shared values that the bind our countries together. there co contrast between these two selfless men and the al qaeda captors. warren's work benefited people across faiths, and meanwhile al qaeda bothed that they held warren with his jewish faith, and al qaeda held warren despite
7:19 am
that his health faded, and deprived him of years from his family that missed him terrible amid the grief that is immeasurable, i hope that they will find some solace that their service will endure. they will be remembered by the pakistani men, women and children whose lives they made better. their spirit will love of their thoughts are in our thoughts and prayers today, and especially warren's wife elaine, daughters alicia, jennifer and their fami example of the shine as a light to people the world over who see suffering and answer with compassion. who see hatred and offer their love. who see war, and work for peace. may god bless these two brave men and may he watch over and t of the years to come.

president obama in washington delivering what had been previously classified in people, the tw hostages held by al qaeda, one american and one italian, dr. warren winestein and giovanni la porta in an al qaeda compound, and he expressed profound re >> he said he declassified tip formation and disclosed it because the familys of the and notable that we did not hear al qaeda americans who w killed unintentionally in the air strikes. let's go right to peter alexander at the white house, a >> well, as you noted, what is significant is that the president that he used language
7:21 am
that he said i profoundly regret deepest apologies and used the words deep regret and condolence, and made no references to the ahmed farooque who was also killed in the same operation of the two innocent civilians who lost their lives, and also did not make any reference to the adam gadahn who is that spokesperson for al qaeda, and it is obvious that the administration were satisfied that they were able to find those two individuals and kill them, but the headline was that he wanted to make apologies to families and desire to let >> our thanks to peter alexander at the white house. we will return to "today." this has been a nbc news special report.

8:21 am
in the philippines three years old. i knew something was different. but when i was 5 years old, that's when i first expreced that. i would wear this t-shirt in my head. i would walk around the house and wear this t-shirt and my mom asked me how come you always wear that t-shirt? i said mom, this is my hair. i am a girl. at that moment i felt identified. the felt determined. a little context here a group in the philippines where we don't have access to therapy. but my family supported me. >> i read this and i read for some children it's like a lightning bolt and for others it's slower. but either way it has to be a confusing time for the young child. we're talking 2, 3, 4, 5 year old and their parents. >> the 2, 3, 4, 5-year-old are so authentic and not worried about what other people think that they sort of spontaneously disclose and say this is who i
8:22 am
am and then kids go to school and they realize what's cool and what gets mom and dad's attention and approval. a lot of kids shut down closer to the school age and then go underground. and then we see a lot of kids who are still thinking about their gender. sort of reemerge presenting in puberty because you can't avoid it when you hit the pubertal years. >> i think that early age is what has people wondering. has parents looking inward and wondering what we would do. we are talking about very little children and people wonder should you let the child dictate. how do they really know and what if they change their minds later? this raises issues no matter how loving and supportive you want to be. >> if you look at gender development. child development. kids figure out their gender as early as 18 months 2 years old. so many of these kids are doing what's very natural to all kids. which is saying i know what my
8:23 am
gender is. the issue is the brain, which is our real source of gender may be at odds or different than what their body is. so it's confusing for us as adults and it can be confusing for kids when they're told wait a minute, your body is not the same gender as your brain and that's where i think people start to worry. kids know who they are. >> we asked a question on this was the question. if your 4-year-old daughter insisted she was a boy, would you support her transition and let her live publicly as a boy? 43% of people who answered said i would wait until my child was older. 30% said yes, i would help him transition. 27% said that's not something i would support. any of that surprise you? >> well i think you really have to support and give your utmost support to the transgender kids. we didn't have access to this therapy but because of the love and support my family there's this notion of self determination that we need to
8:24 am
talk about. self-determination affects a trans' person wellness and well being. that doesn't relate to the culture and policies. it has a direct correlation to violence and discrimination later in life. >> the poll results raise a question for the doctor, too. 4 3% of our audience saying can we just postpone the decision? could you? what is the harm in doing that? >> that is great question because the harm is most often in not doing enough. i'll see folks who said we waited until they were teenagers. they already developed into their gender with breasts and big shoulders and hair and we missed an opportunity to help them pass and be more in line body and brain with the gender they identify with. earlier is better. these re these reversible, nobody has to make a life long there is no surgery. it's so powerful. >> we also got online by the way comments and very simple
8:25 am
questions that may seem trivial to you, but some people say if you have a boy or a girl going through this at 6 or 7 or 8 years old, what bathroom do they use? >> the bathroom questions and locker room questions. >> yeah. >> when we work with schools and other facilities we tell them let the kid be in the team the restroom, the locker room that they assert. so, if i say i'm a boy. i do what other boys do and i go eto the boys' bathroom and boys' locker room. >> what about, the parents, it's an issue. >> parents who think that is not appropriate. >> but no one should be looking in other people's pants at that age. people should have a safe place to go to the bathroom to change and we don't need to be looking at all that. >> the most important things at the end of the day, we have to look at these kids. the most courageous thing to do to announce to the world, this is who i am. we should allow them to be who they are because we wind up with
8:26 am

9:03 am
on board are talking about the turbulence that they experienced. take a listen. >> you could feel like king kong picked up the plane and shook it like there was no tomorrow. the winds were phenomenal and so the plane was being budgeted from left to right up and down and then it was around and around out to sea back to sea. >> yes, we jumped out of our seats. we had our seatbelts on but the bump it was kind of like a roller coaster ride. >> they said a lot of people on board were getting sick, nauseous. >> this happened as that front was coming through. we had 45-mile-per-hour wind gusts, friday, 75-mile-per-hour wind gusts. >> it's scary to be in a plane when you are in that. also, there was another emergency landing yesterday, this was a sky west flight from chicago to connecticut. it had to land in buffalo after three passengers lost consciousness. >> wow! >> the pilot descended the plane 24,000 feet in just minutes. so they were flying a little
9:04 am
over 35000 feet. they got down to about 10,000, which is considered safe for pressurization, that's when the air is breathable again. they thought there was an air cabin pressure on board. they debucked that. officials are trying to figure out what exactly happened. why these passengers passed out. that's what forced the pilot to make such a rash decision. he had to get the plane to such safe levels. >> the theory, you think they were able eliminate pressurization, what is the theory? what happened? >> i guess they were only able to figure it out after they landed. they looked at the plane and thought there was a cabin pressure problem maybe a door leaking air or leaking something. >> it didn't impact everyone on the flight? >>. but three people passed out. so few are the pilot on that plane something is wrong we got to get this to safe levels. >> the training you have a plane with three people and their reaction is severe enough to
9:05 am
land it. so what is it? >> if it's one person you can say they got sick. >> now you wonder. >> i was watching a tom kass tell lo reporting this last night. one of the passengers say the plane took a nose dive. >> the passengers were frightened to death because to go from 35,000 feet to about 10,000 in a couple. >> i'm suresome of them thought they were dying. >> yes of course. >> this next story isn't a lot of fun either. >> it doesn't make you feel comfortable at all. it's amazing. >> a good segue. >> back to that bar-b-que. get to your story. >> get to your story already hall. >> so many frequent flyers love the fact that nowadays you can log on to wifi on your plane, depending on the carrier of course. now the fbi is warning hackers may try to gain control of a cockpit's navigation system through the plane's entertainment system or the internet. so most experts think this is
9:06 am
unlikely. security experts are concerned a determined hacker may try to make this happen. the fbi warned airlines to be on the lookout for suspicious activity trying to connect cables or wires to an entertainment system. >> you should be worried about that without the wifi warning or unusual parts to the airplane seats. >> we had a piece on earlier today that talked about that. we had a hacker who said he was able to on united able to do this united says, look they've booted him off from flying ever again on tear airline saying that their systems are walled off and this is theoretical but not practical. >> nevertheless the fbi is warning, which means they at least acknowledge them. to some degree, there is a concern there. >> it's better to be safe than sorry. >> you no you have to think of everything, right? everything could potentially be a weapon or be used as a way to take it down.
9:07 am
>> i don't know what to do with information, get on the internet? >> not you. you are a law abiding citizen. >> by putting that out in the public, as a traveler? look for the guy? >> if you see that guy doing something weird. >> a suspicious cable. >> what does a suspicious cable look like? >> i don't know i just read it. >> some guy with wire cut something like that. the back of the seats tan apart. >> got the welder's mask. >> you see someone doing that anyway. you probably should alert authorities. >> pardon me i got to get this acetylene torch in here, just a second. hold on. >> that is a red flag. >> by the way, i'm going to shoe a horse while i'm here, too. all right. >> a horse? >> what? >> da da da da da. hey, okay. >> whew. >> i don't know if this is real or not but it's kind of cool. so let's show you.

this is an allen family production. and here's why we love chex. one, choices like chocolate, vanilla and honey nut. two, no artificial colors or flavors.'s gluten free. chex. full of what you love. free of what you don't. i'm brian vickers, nascar® driver. i'm kevin nealon comedian. and i'm arnold palmer, professional golfer. know what we have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. me, when i had a blood clot in my leg that could have traveled to my lungs. that's why i took xarelto®, too. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. i took xarelto® for afib... an irregular heartbeat that can lead to a stroke from a blood clot.
10:14 am
xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may incr test ea test test ingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related
10:15 am
signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost.
