were warning signs missed? panic. not far from the scene of the san bernardino shootings robbers shatter jewelry cases and shoppers mistook the shattering glass as gunshots. police swarm in. the suspects still on the loose. and changes when it comes to your children's health. some of them may surprise you, monday, december 7, 2015. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. after a long nice weekend, how about the panic that must have taken over that shopping mall out in california? >> if that's not a sign of the times, the smash and grab jewelry heist, but people who heard it think it's gunshots.
7:01 am
lives. that's one of the reasons why the president knew that this country needed to hear something about the war on terror. >> that takes us to our top story on a monday morning. president obama's address from the oval office to a nation yes, on edge in the wake of the shootings in san bernardino and the other terror attacks around the world. the president saying that they highlight a new phase in the terror threat facing the united states. we have complete coverage, including swift reaction from the republican presidential field, but first nbc national correspondent peter alexander. he's at the ite house. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. a majority of americans are dissatisfied with this president's handling of terrorism, but there he was, president obama, trying to reassure anxious shusamericans and, in fact, saying stay the course against isis, promising to destroy the terrorist group, guing the u.s. will prevail by being in his words strong and smart, resilient and relentless. just days after the massacre in san bernardino, a full-scale
7:02 am
president obama. >> thisp was an act of terrorism, designed to kill innent people. >> reporter: president said there's no evidence of terroristic activity from overseas. instead they had been directed by a terrorist group overseas. instead, arguing they had gone down what he called the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted version of islam. islam. they are thugs and killers, part of a cult of death. >> reporter: comparing last week's attack to mass shootings at ft. hood and in chattanooga, the president argued that the terrorist threat has evolved into a new phase. >> i know that after so much war many americans are asking whether we are confronted by a cancer that hahano immediate cure. >> reporter: in only his third oval office address in seven years, mr. obama, who faces growing criticism that his campaign to defeat isis is failing, vowed the u.s. will hunt down anyone plotting attacks against this country. >> the threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it. >> reporter: noticeaeay absent any major shift in strategy, the
7:03 am
ban assault weapons and to bar anyone on a no-fly list from being able to buy a gun. >> what could possibly be the argument for allowing a terror suspect to buy a semiautomatic weapon? this is a matter of natioiol security. >> reporter: while insisting he identifies with americans' fears, the president said the west is not at war against islam, cautioning americans not to single out muslims. >> it is the responsibility of all americans, of every faith, to reject discrimination, because when we travel down that road we lose. >> reporter: and a senior administration official tried to punctuate progress being made against isis citing stepped-up air strikes that have destroyed at least 116 oil tankers since paris, but the lack of any new policy announcements last night really says as much about the president's confidence in the current plan to beat isis as it does about his sense that there really aren't any better alternatives.
7:04 am
>> peter alexander at the white house. peter, thank you. >> before the president even finished that speech some of the republican presidential candidates were weighing in. nbc's andrea mitchell is here with that piece of the story. andrea, good morning. >> good morning, savannah. well, not surprisingly it didn't long at all for the republican candidates to pan the president's speech. donald trump was first out of the box on twitter.. >> and may god bless the united states of americ >> reporter: it took only 90 skolkd seconds after president obama finished speaking for donald trumpo tweet is that all l ere is. we need a new president, fast! later trump tweete well, obama refused to say, he just can't say it, that we are at war with radical islamic terrorists, though that's a phrase george w. bush also refused to use. marco rubio on fox. >> people are scared not just because of these attacks but because the growing sense that we have a president that's completely overwhelmed by them. >> reporter: the other republican candidates issued statements. ted cruzuz if i am electetepresident, i will direct the department of defense to destroy isis. ben carson called it strange that it took four days from the
7:05 am
and even more strange that somehow the attack on our soil is proof that his policies are working. since the san bernardino massacre, the e publican criticism has been f frce. >> we have a situation in our country whe we have a president who is out of control. he's out of control. >> reporter: even hillary clinton is sounding alarms. >> i know that americans are anxious and fearful, and we have reason to be. the threat is real. the need for action iss urgent. >> the white house wanted to reassure a jittery nation, but in the middle of a political campaign, that is a tall order, especially as terrorism becomes a major concern increasingly for a large segment of americans. >> all right, andrea. stand by there. we wananto bring into this conversation mark halperin, managing editor with "bloomberg politics." >> president don't do this often, go into the oval office and address in primetime. this president hasn't done it
7:06 am
and crisis. because of that, are you surprised in this speech that he didn't offer anything new in terms of strategy or policy, that it was basically stay the course? >> i'm surprised by that. i'm also surprise that had h didn't do a good enough job or maybe any job of reaching out to republicans. this is a time when we need national unity. we're in the middle of a presidential campaign, he's leaving office in a little over a year. reaction from republicans, as andrea said, uniformly bad, not just the presidential candidates by the capitol hill leaders. i think nothing new and no sense of bipartisanship, not good for the country. >> mark, the white house will be quick to say this is not a speech that is for the political class. it's not for you. it's not for us sitting at the table. it's for regular americans who might just be tuning into this issue. the problem with that, as i see it, number one, it acknowledges that they need reassurance, that up to this point they haven't gotten it, and, number two, they don't know what our strategy is. shouldn't they? >> they need to know what the strategy is. again, i think americans look -- look, this is fuamental
7:07 am
protect the country, to protect american interests abroad, and when the president comes out and gives a speech and then it becomes just politics, it becomes for the chattering class, i think that's a failure of leadership of both parties, but the president's got the primary responsibility now, and you would like a world, like after 9/11, where the president addresses the country and says the we're in crisis and republicans say we'll put partisanship aside for a moment and work with him. that's not what we're seeing. >> using the president's own words, early in the speech americans see the threat of terrorism as a cancer with no immediate cure. based on what you heard from the president last night should americans feel like e least there is a cure down the road? >> no, and i thought that was actually a bad metaphor to use because people think of cancer in one way, and what he needed to project, as mark was saying, that we have solutions and, in fact, with no new strategyo announce, having elevated this to a sunday night prime-time
7:08 am
which is, you know, incredibly -- >> rarified air. >> rarified air, as you point out, and to not have a new strategy, to not explain new military options or new political options or to embrace some sort of unifying vision really is a problem. our new poll is indicating that there are real concerns about terrrrism, and there is a a partisan divide on this, but so many people are now after paris and after, of course, san bernardino, bringing it home. he needs to speak after paris. it's too wrong for him not to y to c crect the imagery of jayvee -- >> the press conference doesn't convey that sense of it. he needed to address the nation sooner, his own critics of his own party say, and, in fact, he came to this position last night becaususof democrats as well as republicans but primarily democrats in the leadership who are up for senate seats saying you've got to deal with this. the country is*really scared.
7:09 am
business-as-usual moment. >> right. >> and too much of what he's done, including last night, business as usual. a repeating basically what he thinks the right policy is with nothing new and no sense of your jen see, which is what a lot of a aricans are feeling.. mitchell, good to have you both. >> more now on the investigation into the san bernardino rampage. as authorities interview family and friends of the gunman syed farook's father who is now speaking out. nbc's miguel almaguer is in san bernardino. >> reporter: matt, good morning. the fbi is still processing crime scenes.. they are looking for evidence overseas and here at home, this as investigators question the gunman's mother, and we hear from his father for the first time. his massacre claimed 14 lives and left 21 wounded by syed farook is described by his father as s momma's boy born andnd raisededn the u.s. speaking to an italian newspapers syed farook sr. says his son became obsessed against israel and shared isis leader al
7:10 am
islamic state. >> we have at least 20 victims. >> reporter: farook with his wife tashfeen malik carried out the deadliest act of terror in the u.s. since 9/11.1. at their h he they raised their 6-month-old daughter with farook's mother, the house of bomb factory stockpiled with explosives and ammo. the fbi also raided the home of syed farook's childhood friend enrique marquez, agents blowing up a garage door and hauling away evidence and was unable to interview marquez because ofcials say he sought mental health treatment after the massacre. marquez bought the assault rifles used in the shooting three to four years ago that were later acquired by farook. >> seemed like normal everyday americans. >> reporter: every day in san bernardino they pray for the victims as families prepare to bury the dead. sierra claiborne was 27. she will always be her daddy's
7:11 am
>> i give god all the glory for my daughter's short time here, for her short time here. we weren't ready for this. >> reporter: after spending several hours interviewing farook, the shooter's mother, they will also likely question her several more times, we're told, by fbi officials. meantime, matt, we should also say this investigation continues here and abroad as they look for more clues about this case going anywhere they can to find more evidence. matt and savannah? >> miguel almaguer out in california this morning. miguel, thank you. >> it also stretched out over to pakistan where tash feek malik attended college. >> bill is in pack stapp this morning. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. tashfeen malik is a mystery to
7:12 am
here, all of whom are trying to work out why a young mother would end her life and the lives of so many others the way she did.d. tashfeen malik's former home is locked. her family, including her father gulzar malik, have fled, but not not before pakistani officials questioned them about ties to at the collele where she studied pharmacy for five years they insist she was not radicaliz there. >> the radical approach or radical-minded culture, it's not like that. >> reporter: she was a deeply religious and private woman, destroying any photographs that showed her without a veil. never revealing her face to men in pakistan. investigators here have little idea why she turned terrorist. there is no link says its interior minister, between her and extremists in pakistan. at the country's most radical
7:13 am
to her. some women students from this mosque pledged allegiance to isis last year. tashfeen malik wasn't among g them, but she was close to some hardline students in pakistan, and she, too, declared her loyalty to isis just before the massacre. her friend say she was devoutly muslim but no supporter of islamist violence. they are shocked. >> anyone who knows her can't expect that she can do such things. >> reporter: and she stressed malik grew up in conservative saudi arabia. saudi authorities, too, are looking into her. it's not clear whether she radicalized her husband or vice versa. what shid she did, though, was very clear, very deadly, and very deliberate. and it's clear from survivors of the mass killing that she took a full and active part in it, and say police she fired at them
7:14 am
what no one knows is where she learned to use and fire a weapon matt? a key part of this investigation. bill neely thank you. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams is working the investigation from washington. pete, what has the fbi been able to learn? >> reporter: matt, good morning. the president spoke mostly about isis sunday night, but the justice department and the fbi say they can't be sure what the source of radicalization actually was. torney general loretta lynch said sunday that investigators group's propaganda the couple was following. even though tashfeen malik for isis to facebook around the time of the attack. pakistan have told american reporters that before she came to the u.s. she was putting up media. officials say they see no indication yet that once she was here either she or syed farook were in direct contact with any terrorists overseas, and investigators say there's no sign the couple was part of a
7:15 am
anybody else was involved. so the fbi hopes the answers to those questions will be found on the computer hard drives and the cell phones the couple left behind, but agents say farook and malik smashed those devices. they say they are trying to extract what's on them but that's taking much longer than it usually does, although they say this morning theheare having some success. so far officialslsay their conclusion that the couple was radicalized it based on the things they left behind, the guns, the bombs, the way they tried to cover their tracks and the extensive preparation, but what the fbi wants to know is what they were thinking, and those answers, they hope, aren those devices. matt? >> all right. pete williams in washington. pete, thank you very much. we'll shift gears and take a look at weather. dylan is in for al. what are we looking at? >> the pacific northwest cannot catch a break. every single day there's been a major weather system, the typical el nino pattern, all this moistste streaming in off

8:54 am
which said "hello," adele. she was not eligible for this year's grammys. >> next year will be the year of adele. >> she will sweep it clean. >> came out two months after the deadadne. >> and let's talk a little politics here and national security and everything else president obama addressed last night in primetime. he made an address from the oval office, only third time he's done that as p.this in the wake of last week's mass shooting in sbeerndio and a few weeks after paris. here's a bit of what he told the country. >> this was an act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people. now, here at home we have to work together to address the challenge. there are several steps that congress should take right away. to begin with, congress should act to make sure no one on a no flyist is able to buy a gun. what could possibly be the
8:55 am
suspect to buy semiautomatic weapon. it's a matter of national security? >> he began his speech by laying out what his plan to defeat isis is because the criticism of shim there is no plan or i i there is one i is not working so he went pointty point. obviously not going to satisfy everyone but he wanted to explain he says that there is a plan in place and that he believes at least it's working and then as you saw there he wanted to detail a couple of things that could be done in this country to shop mass shootings and stop terrorism here. >> didn't announce a new plan but did to your p pn also mention intensifyingg was already in place and that's been a part of some of the response from the gop regarding if this strategy is not working what else can be done and the president's i guess improvement of the plan is the intensification of the air strikes and what's happening? >> certainly a lot of people this mornrng, the gop candidates, saying, you know, we need toear more thanust tough words. i mean what, realtiy is taking place here?
8:56 am
watching any of his twitter feed last night live tweeting during all there is? we need a new president, fast. ted cruz tweeting if i'm elected department i'll direct the department of defense to destroy isis and marco rubio told fox news people are scared not just because of the attacks but because of the growing sense that we have a president completely overwhelmed by them. i think overall though people listening to this speech just felt like obviously a speech isn't going to do it, you know. you need to have more than, that and i think, you know, even though there's an action plan in place a lot of people are saying that's been in place so what more is happening? >> and they also expect when you take to the oval office which is a huge deal that there will be something new introduced or something monumental, sort of a laying out of the status quo for the american people so -- >> interesting. >> also interesting, the cover of the "new york times," the editorial page, anyway for the first time since 1920 "the
8:57 am
greater gun regulations in this country, so in part they pupuit this way. it is a moral outrage and a national disgrace that people can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill with brutal speed and efficiency. opponents of gun control are saying that determined killers obtained weapons, illegally in places like france, england and norway that have strict gun ws. yes,s,hey did, but at least those countries are trying. the united states is not. and this morning "daily news" printed a cover he have we cynicism, you might say, but by the numbers this is an interesting eric erickson, he is a conservative blogger. >> right. >> red state. we're showing youhat he did. he actually took the editorial and fired his weapon, and you can see the bullet holes in the paper and he called on his supporters, his readers of "red state" to do the very same. that one response to the "times" editorial and there is it is.
8:58 am
tweefshlgs okay. the week after sandy hook apparently the record was broken for firearm background checks. that's the first stable in the firearm. stands. a similar thing happened after san bernardino, so what they are saying here by the numbers is that after these incidents, yes, you have part of the country who has the gun debate and have others who feel the response is >> right. >> and the thing that stephanie gosk went to a gun shop near where the san bernardino massacre happened and the guy was like basically, the manufacturers or whatever are going to be happy with his sales because his store was pretty much sold out. one in three americans already own guns, and they are somewhere around 310 million guns i think, one gun per person in the united states. our population is around 330 million. >> yeah. >> it's interesting to see after an incident like san bernardino, people have different points of
8:59 am
for some people it's terrorism and for some people it's gun control and for some people the answer is mental health. the answer is probably a combination of all things. people go to their corner and you are going to arm up and feel you. >> and some of the numbers though with the gun purchases. people fearing that perhaps because there may be some legislation there they better buy everything now before the laws change. >> load up, literally. you know what's so interesting and this is a stat that i feel is ignored so often is that even members of the nra when they are polled would like to see what is often referred to as common sense gun reform, some kind of tightening of background checks. that is poll that came out after new town, and it's been cited as well, so when people instantly assume that if you're a member
9:00 am
completely shut down on changes, that's not true according to the polls. >> right. now that maybe true to the case of politicians who often pander on both sides to what they think constituents want to hear. >> yes. >> but the polling shows there is an appetite even for those who are members of the nra to make some common sense changes. >> i think when you take a look at some of the weapons in this case that were used, assault rifles and you think about, you know, secondality amendment was at a time when people were using very slow gunpowdwd guns, i mean, regular guns. we're not talking assault rifles, it's a very different kind of gun that we're dealing with these days so people often ask that question like why are we -- why do you need to arm yourself with the teeth with those kinds of weapons necessarily? >> because they would say it's their constitutional trying do so. >> but others who say the second amendment was applying to militias, that the whole gamut
9:01 am
applicable to your point about the weaponry and the whole point of protection of the second amendment. >> the yeah. >> all right. let's head over to dylan who is in this morning with al with a look at weather. hey, dylan. >> good morning, guys. we've got a classic el nino setup. storm after storm coming in off of the pacific ocean here and a jet stream way high up in the atmosphere running 200 miles per hour and the storms get caught up and come right onshore and every single day we'll see some very heavy rain somewhere in the pacific north west. today it's mainly across the west coast of oregon and tomorrow it moves up into washington. 5 to 9 inches of rain possible with very gdense fog advisory for eastern siouxland until 6 am monday well, we definitely saw more in the way of sunshine today compared to our saturday along with some warmer temperatures. most of us across siouxland climbed into the middle and upper 40's, with some isolated spots in the fifties. lows will be bottoming out in the upper 20's across the viewing area with some patchy fog possible due to our snow pack lingering on the ground. high pressure will be building in from the south yielding lots of sunshine and pleasant conditions to kick off our work week. we will continue our warmer and dry
