7:01 am
>> i'm harry smith alongside kristin welker and dylan dwyer. let's get right to the top story. terror fears in the wake of the san bernardino massacre. the president will address the nation in a rare sunday night address after huddling with his closest advisers saturday at the white house. he's expected to lay out his game plan to keep america safe as this story develops rapidly both here at home and abroad. from the nation's capital to san bernardino to pakistan and london. we are covering this story and new terror attacks overnight from all over the world this morning. let's begin with nbc's ron allen at the white house. ron, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we expect the president to try to reassure the nation that keeping the country safe is his highest priority and we're expecting him to explain exactly what happened in san bernardino and to prevent it from happening again. president obama meeting in the white house situation room on
7:02 am
discuss the san bernardino attack. the president in his weekly address all, but saying the massacre was terrorism. >> it is entirely possible that these two were radicalized to commit the act of terror. it was possibly to say a workplace shooting and calling for stricter gun laws and last month telling the nation in the wake of paris attacks. >> right now we know of no specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland. >> reporter: today according to the white house, the president will update the country with the latest on the investigation, discuss the broader threat of terrorism and argue that isis, quote, will be destroyed. republicans running for president warning the commander in chief is not up to the challenge of defeating the so-called islamic state. >> this is a war. we're in a war. >> ben carson slipping in the polls says he'll stop immigration programs like the one malik used to enter the u.s. as a fiance.
7:03 am
someone who can carry out such a horrendous crime, that should be the end of the argument right there. >> reporter: while other contenders vow to take the fight directly to isis. >> if i'm elected to serve as commander in chief we won't cower in the face of evil. >> reporter: his military strategy is straightforward. >> we need to do saturation, carpet bombing directly at isis. >> reporter: we expect the president to say that his strategy to degrade and destroy isis with air strikes and local troops on the groined will be successful in time, but mostly, expect the president to talk about what happened in san bernardino and about the threat america now faces. harry? >> ron allen at the white house this morning. thanks. now to california where the fbi raided a house belonging to suspect syed farook's childhood friend who they believe bought the guns used in the massacre. miguel almaguer in san bernardino. good morning.
7:04 am
with so many indicators pointing to a clear act of terror, were warning signs missed? this as we're learning more information about the shooters and where they got their high-powered rifles. this weekend an overnight raid. the fbi storming the home of syed farook's childhood friend. agents ripping open a garage door and unable saturday to interview the man who originally bought and then sold these assault rifles to the gunman more than three years ago. though the friend is not a suspect in the massacre that left 14 dead and 21 wounded, it is another lead into what may have been the deadliest terror attack in the u.s. since 9/11. >> this is a very complex investigation. >> reporter: today investigators are still poring through syed farook and tashfeen malik's lives. he was born in chicago, a college graduate with a good job. she was born in pakistan, met farook in saudi arabia and just
7:05 am
>> women are no longer wallflowers. they're not only playing a key role in support, they're playing a key role in limited instances in operations. >> together malik and farook am as amassed an arsenal. they had tools to build ieds and they had more ammunitions than some gun stores stock. on victims and police they unleashed round after round from high-powered rifles. >> you got ten rounds at a time and you load it up and shoot it and if you shoot it and bam, bam, bam, bam, you can go through ten rounds in a matter of seconds. witnesses say the shootout with police that left farook and malik dead was over in seconds. >> the bullets echoed through your body. you felt the bullets shake your body. pow, pow, pow. but the bloodshed they left behind inside this office complex will be felt for a lifetime.
7:06 am
gone, but so many questions remain. >> reporter: those who knew farook say they never appeared radicalized, but they knew very little about his wife. >> miguel, thank you. many questions remain about tashfeen malik. this is new video of her former home in pakistan where a family member tells "the los angeles times" malik began posting extremist views on facebook after arriving in the united states. nbc news has obtained a photo of the pakistan i.d. card listing birth dates as well as a scar on her right lane. bill neely is live in islamabad with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, harry. tashfeen malik is as much a mystery in pakistan as she is in the u.s. she wasn't on any government watch list.
7:07 am
in saudi arabia where she grew up. she wasn't a very private person and we have few photographs of her and one of her pakistani identity card. she actually destroyed nearly all of her photographs showing her without a veil. she became a deeply religious person. she almost switched from her pharmacy studies to deep stud of islam, but you know, none of that explains what she did. her background only tells us so much. nothing explains how she went from pharmacy student to terrorist. how she went from a softly spoken suburban mom to a black-clad terrorist who murdered people and shot at the police. was she radicalized here? we simply don't know. did she lead her husband on or did he lead her on? we don't know. she pledged allegiance to the
7:08 am
there is no that isis led her or knew of her existence. her history in pakistan and college days will tell us who she was, but not why she did what she did. she was from here, but as a terrorist she came from absolutely nowhere. harry. >> bill neil ney islamabad. thank you. new to london where scotland yard says it is treating a slasher attack in a stub station as a terrorist incident. the grisly attack who reported hearing some disturbing words from the suspect. nbc's keir simmons has more from london. keir? >> chanel, good morning. witnesses say people ran for their lives from the subway station where this happened fearing it might be the latest terror attack in europe. after the attacker was arrested some onlooker shouted at him, you're not muslim. a message spread on social media and police are still investigating the attacker's
7:09 am
in a london subway station an assailant armed with a knife arrested by two police officers. video of the dramatic moment captured on social media. witnesses heard shouts of this is for syria as commuters were attacked apparently at random. >> i just hear him say this is for syria. >> reporter: there was panic as people escaped what appeared to be more jihadist aggression targeting members of the public. >> it was scary. really scary. >> reporter: one man suffered serious knife wounds while one other received minor injuries. london's terror police are investigating the case. they have been on a high state of alert meaning a terrorist attack is highly likely. this morning downing street says it is monitoring the investigation as police try to establish the true motivation for this terrifying attack. and the most severely injured victim is not in a life-threatening condition. doctors say while some witnesses say the attacker's knife was
7:10 am
understanding how easily panic and fear can be spread with the current anxious atmosphere across europe, chanel. >> keir simmons, thank you. evan coleman is an nbc terrorism analyst and senior partner at flashpoint. good morning. >> good morning. >> appreciate you coming in again this morning. yesterday an isis radio station claimed some credit for the attack of these two calling them soldiers of the caliphate. you see this as an isis or isil operation or does that even matter. >> what would seem so far from isis is marketedly different than the reaction after the paris attacks or the downing of the russian airliner. we have to be clear here. this isis radio report is one of their media units, but they didn't actually claim credit. they didn't say we did it. western media accounts are saying these people are islamic state supporters. if we would have called them jehovah's witnesses, they would
7:11 am
they're getting information from our reports and rebroadcasting it. they've issued no claim of responsibility. they've not said they trained these people, dispatched them or armed them and everything that we've seen from these folks, the fact that they built explosive devices that didn't work and the fact that they went after a target that makes no sense and the fact that they killed people they knew personally, none of this fits the isis model and the question is were these people inspired by isis? were they inspired by another group? was it radical jihad? we don't know. there's a lot about these folks that we don't know and this does stand in contrast to other homegrown attacks we've seen previously. >> there's so much speculation at this point and so many fingers, at least, are pointing to her. >> yeah. >> as this possible black widow, so to speak. does that have credence with you? >> it's certainly possible, but another thing is we don't really know. even if she was the one that was radicalized.
7:12 am
according to relatives she began posting extremist views on facebook after she arrived in the united states. there is a report that she may have pledged allegiance to abu bakr al baghdadi. if she was going to carry out this major terrorist attack and wanted to be known as an isis member. why would she delete this and why would she post this under an account that wasn't't under her own name and it doesn't make sense and these are the questions we have to answer before we label this as isis. >> how do you combat things like this, sleeper cells or lone wolves, this is not easy. >> this is the challenge. the white house has put so much emphasis on the campaign and it does not appear to be working and it does not appear to be effective. panels of outside experts have said as much and we have to go back to the drawing board here and think about what we're doing to dissuade people from doing this. not just here in the u.s., but broader across the world.
7:13 am
let's turn to chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning, chanel. >> this is a sunday night and doesn't often do this. why does the president feel he has to do this right now in this way? >> i think that san bernardino coming so soon after paris has the country as jittery. you see it, the issue of security and terrorism has risen on the list of issues that are most important to americans right now and frankly, there has been a vacuum of sorts, a void. the president has been very hesitant about being too out front on this and being too outspoken on this issue, and i think they realize that they need to reassure the public that if they're not out there doing it, if they're not out there talking about don't target good muslim americans and things like this. if the president is not out there saying it, someone else will fill the vacuum and that's what's been happening over the
7:14 am
now realize the president needs to use the bully pulpit here to calm the public down. >> beyond calming the fears and beyond see something say something, do they have a strategy to deal with the lone wolfs? >> they don't yet. that's a line of questioning i'm going to have later this morning with the attorney general. she's on the show and that's one of the questions, you know. they don't seem to. you saw that the head of the homeland security department basically said we need a whole new strategy. they haven't been able to crack this code. you heard evan say this fight to try to fight the ideology on some educational grounds hasn't worked. what more can be done? what more can change? what tools do they need? do they need to start monitoring more people, if that's the case, does the fbi have resources for that? and oh, by the way, there's the u.s. constitution and what point do you go too far in violating the rights of american citizens.
7:15 am
it's changing quickly and we've heard what the candidates have had to say on the campaign trail, but they're not alone. we heard jerry fallwell, jr., president of liberty university. he was urging people on campus to arm themselves. take a listen. >> i've always thought if more good people had conceal carry permits then we could end those muslims before they go out to try and kill. >> i should clarify. he did say he was referring to the san bernardino killers when he was referencing the muslims. is this the rhetoric that the president is trying to avoid the whole us versus them. >> he has and don't forget before him, president bush and there are a lot of people that will tell you that if the rhetoric becomes us versus muslims that that's what isil wants to put out there. that's what isis wants to do. they want to say, see? that's what's happening there. i can tell you, that is why the president has to come out and talk to the american public right now because there's a lot
7:16 am
people are concerned about their security and they're thinking about taking their security procedures into their own hands and not trusting the government anymore and that's a dangerous place to be and that's why i think the president has to come out and address the public tonight. >> make sure to tune into "meet the press" this morning when chuck will have an exclusive interview with attorney general loretta lynch. kristen is tracking another terror attack, this time overseas the same place where the "uss cole" was attacked. ice sis claiming responsibility for another deadly attack in yemen. it hit the -- he and seven of his aides were killed. the band eagles of death metal will play in that city for the first time since that massacre. the band was performing at the
7:17 am
opened fire killing 90 people. u2 canceled its own performance. eagles of death metal has said it wants to be the first band to play at the bataclan when that site reopens. it is graphic video. we want to warn you. police surrounded a suspect after a bank robbery. he was hit by taser and moments later by gun fire. the man had raised a straight razor. the plane had to make a crash landing in mississippi after a tire blew out. freeman said he was okay, but the private plane was badly damaged. here at home, major news out of hollywood. the big moment coming a little bit early for kim kardashian and kanye west. the superstar couple announced the birth of a baby boy in
7:18 am
facebook. even though he was three weeks early, one of kim's selfies shows how eager she was for this birthday to arrive. very sweet. another little boy is getting excited about the christmas holiday to come, in a hair, personal interview. prince william describes an extremely bouncy prince george who will probably give him no sleep on christmas eve, probably not like lots of little boys. the prince's comments were to a young journalist when she was homeless. he promised to give her an interview if she achieved her dream of becoming a writer. it's election day for playoffs when clemson, oklahoma and michigan state will be paired off for semifinals and bowl games. action on the field can still be wild even as the season winds down. that was evident last night. the baylor bears and the texas longhorns got into a bench-clearing brawl in their match.
7:19 am
texas won 23-17 to knock baylor out of bowl contention. the season winding down, but a lot of heated emotion. >> the hawk eyes last night. . let's get some weather, please. >> we've been talking about el nino and we are in a typical pattern with storm after storm coming off the pacific and making things very messy across the pacific northwest. look at the heavier rain and the mountain snow and it's at the highest elevations and the rain is the biggest concern along with the wind and the surf. >> look as we go through the day today we're looking at more heavy rain to make its way onshore and we could see 60 to 70 mile per hour wind gusts and 17 to 22 feet high and that can lead to some beach erosion and we could seewelcome to ktiv.com i'm meteorologist sunday: mostly sunny with more
