planes on stand by to fly here and bring home 50,000 russian tourists. extraordinary. there are also 20,000 british holiday makers. it is looking like a masss exodus from here after an event that is looking more and more like mass murder. the flight recorders revealing a violent and sudden event. investstators cannot find anything mechanical to match it. a child's book amid the wreckage of the crash french investigators are now convinced was not caused by a t thnical failure failure. sources told french media on the cockpit voice recorder, the sound of an explosion could be heard, before that, the cockpit was absolutely normal with no technical failure reported on the second black box until the moment of the explosion. it. >> ix could have been an explosive device that was put on the aircrafttr it could have
going through what we call an explosive decompression. >> reporter: but u.s. officials tell nbc news that intelligencee interceptsts reveal isis fighters in sinai promising something big before the crash, then bragging just after it, to their leaders in syria, that they had taken down the plane. the growing suspicion it might be a bomb convinced russia to stop all flights to egypt. 50,000 russian tourists now in sharm el sheikh where the plane took off. it was thehe intelligence chief who recommended russian planes stop flying here. intelligence shared with the u.s. and britain. almost unprecedented. we still don't know what the intelligence is. british officials now believe a bomb may have been put in the cargo hold inside or on top of luggage. airport workers and equipment
filmed, but suspicion is falling on@ staff and lax security here. egypypan security officials are searching an airport under scrutiny in a region where isis is known to erate. tourists, victims and tourists trapped here. tens of thousands of them now waiting to be evacuated home. and in a few hours time, a major statement frommgypt which is leading the investigation. no one is yet ruling out mechanical failure. i don't believe egypt will. more and more evidence, erica, is pointing to terrorism. >> bill neely, thank you. to politics. republican frontrunner ben carson under fire questioned about his account of a scholarship offer to west point yearar ago.o. this morning, some republican
rivals are piling on. senior white house correspondent chris jansing is here. >> benarson is feeling the pressure on being on top of the polls. voters like his honey. that is now under attack. he fought back in a press conference. ben carson as we have not seen him before. >> they understand this is a witch hunt. >> reporter: combative and claiming voters are on his side against the media. >> you will not find somebody who will sit back and let you be completely unfair without letting the american people know. >> reporter: carson is denyiyi the reportsf the fabrication. >> i offered a full scholarship at west point. >> reporter: west point never accepted carson. he now acknowledges it was not anything formal. >> several of the high brass told me i would be somebody they would be interested in in the military.
i interpreted it as an offer. >> reporter: this is not the first t te carson has been accused of embellishing and whether he had a violent temper to his youth. it is all a new level of scrutiny as carson shares frontrunner status with donald trump who did not waste time. wow, he wrote, one of many lies by ben carson. big story. chris christie weighed in too. >> dr. carson will have to answer for it. he will have to answer for the voters. they have to decide. >> reporter: how the campaign suggests the competition is spreading lies. >> suddenly we are number one. someone is passing dirt all over town. >> reporter: and past controversies have strengthened his support among the conservative base. >> he is continually cast himself as an outsider who is persecuted by the political and media elite. this may feed into that narrative. >> reporter: strategists say there is rask in going after the
jeb bush has c ce to his defense calling ben carson's story inspirational. if it is between carson and media story, i'm going with ben carson. >> chris, thank you. a new book is making a l l of waves on the campaign trail. there is some talk of whether it could turn into another headache for candidate jeb bush. it is called"destiny in power." the american odyssey of george h.w. bush. it is authored by jon acham. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> i want to talk about what chchs just laid out for us with ben carson. what is the impact of this particular issue on his campaign? >> most of us judge on historical historical. 2016 has alluded all analogy with trump and carson so far ahead. the past may not be much of a guide here. i suspect it is a bump in the
road for carson. as mentioned a second ago. it is an unconventional campaign in an unconventional year. ththconventional rules o o how campaigns can go off track sometimes probably don't apply. >> it is something we will be following closely. talking about your book, it made headlines this week as we lelened more a aut george h.w. bush's view of his son's insiders when he was in the white house. elder bush saying cheney had his empire and rumsfeld had a lack of humility. jeb bush, the third bush in the equation. we asked him and he said his dad was trying to create a different narrative for his brother. is that your take? >> i think president bush 41 was speaking to history. he thought that at times, the style of the 43 bush administratiti was hawkish in a
represent the substance of that administration. this i a work of history. it was the long view on 41's part. i think the key thing about this is the president 41 was making a int that diplomacy and force are not competitive. they should be complementary. that was the view in the second term that bush 43 came to as well. >> we bring bush into the equation, there is some concern about the timing of the bookk by those in his circle and whether or not it could have a negative impact on his campaign. i think most people agree 2016 is not a conventional campaign year. is this the thing you think couldd impact jeb b bh's campaign? >> i honestly don't. i have been surprised by that line of analysis. it seems to me that the story of his father, remarkable american odyssey, youngest pilot in the navy. young man who joined the navy on his 18th birthday.
shot down over the pacific at age 20. served his country for a half century. you know, the story of his father, who is arguably the most inspirational and important man in jeb bush's life, seems to me more people who know about bush 41 might take a lookk at his son with another clearer set of eyes. if anything, it seems to me, that the conversation about the bush family is neutral on 16 and ararably possiblyy positive because it does remind people of the family's remarkable legacy of public service. >> i have to admit, i just got it lt night. 900 pages. >> you're not done yet? >> shocking. i know you had unrestricted access to the former president's diaries. looking forward to the read. jon, thank you. >> thanks, erica. >> the book is "destiny in power." and one of the men who hopes to be the next president is taking center stage.
