8:03 am
news, lead singer jesse hughes recounting the carnage. >> several people hid in our dressing room and the killers were able to get in and killed kid who was hiding under my leather jacket. >> no band members were harmed. but touring staff member, nick alexander, was shot and killed. and abc news learned overnight, salah abdeslam, passed through multiple police checkpoints in the hours after the attacks, picked up by friends who he begged to take him to brussels. the attorney for one of them telling abc news, abdeslam was picked up just after the attacks ended. the two friends noticed what may have been a suicide vest beneath a large coat, but they managed to breeze through three separate checkpoints. after arriving in brussels, he told other friends he was terrified about isis retribution
8:04 am
because he didn't blow himself up like most paris attackers. one of those attackers, his younger brother, brahim, who detonated his vest. outside the stade de france. players even hearing that explosion. now, just this morning, the french foreign minister saying the only way to destroy isis is with boots on the ground. that as he added that french aircraft carrier will arrive off the coast of syria tomorrow, so, it's possible in the near future we could see both french and u.s. ground forces in the fight against isis. paula. >> that's the big question, how to defeat isis. matthew, thank you. this morning, president barack obama offering his strongest words yet on isis. speaking in malaysia, mr. obama said we do not succumb to fear. >> the united states will continue to lead this global coalition. we are intensifying our strategy on all fronts, with local partners on the ground. we're going to keep rolling back
8:05 am
isil in iraq and syria, take commanders so that they don't threaten us. and we'll destroy this terrorist organization. >> you just heard it, we'll destroy this terrorist organization. we want to bring in martha raddatz in brussels, belgium. where their capital city is under the country's highest terror alert. martha, good morning to you. tougher words than ever from the president about intensifying and destroying isis, so, how does this change the current strategy? >> reporter: well, i don't think we really know, he talks about intensifying the strategy, i don't know exactly how you do that. he has said all along that his strategy is working. he said that just the other day. what you really have here, paula, the word inside syria and iraq and what's happening in places like brussels, like paris, where they're in real lockdown this morning. so, that's the real key here,
8:06 am
too, how do you go after those fighters who may have gone into syria and come out who are attacking soft targets. the air strikes are intense. there have been about 8,000 air strikes since we started bombing over a year ago. they are going after leaders, they are going after mid-level fighters, yet you have about 20,000 or 30,000 fighters in iraq and syria. it's going to take a long time. and i know that the president says that over and over again. but they'll have to look at this as a global war. >> yeah, the numbers of fighters is mind-boggling. you mentioned the lockdown in brussels where the government has warned residents of a serious and imminent attack, armed guards patrolling the streets there, is this the new normal globally? >> reporter: it's really incredible, paula, for me, i arrived here last night in brussels from iraq, and there's not a lot different, not a real transition for me, you have soldiers on the street, we have
8:07 am
them parked in front of our hotel, they're all over the grand plaza. there are american tourists out in the plaza today, who say they feel safe. but i think they feel safe because you have this presence on the ground. what happens next is the real key, how long can they keep those troops, how long are you going to have this feeling in europe. and it looks like you're going to have it for a very long time, that there's going to have to be some sort of protection. particularly here n the comes days with everything in lockdown. subways are closed. shopping areas are closed. a real different feeling. >> some striking security images. martha, thank you. and stay safe. dan. >> major european capital on lockdown this morning. this morning, we're hearing from an american citizen that survived an another major attack in mali. the one on friday at a luxury hotel. 20 died including a mother from
8:08 am
who was dedicated to health care work in africa and asia. abc's alex marquardt is on the ground in mali this morning. alex, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. there are still big questions this morning about how the attack at this hotel took place, who was behind it, how many attackers there were. we spoke with one american who survived this attack, who describes a harrowing experience in this country that is very much in the forefront in this global front against extremism. destroying rooms, in what was considered one of the country's safest hotels. new pictures of the aftermath of the deadly rampage that left 19 people dead. including an american aid worker. state department contractor terry kemp was one of around 20 americans there at the entrance when the shooting began. >> they were right behind me. >> reporter: attackers chased him, firing, as kemp ran inside and dove under a table. >> i just knew i was dead.
8:09 am
they were shooting, the shells were hitting me. they never looked. >> reporter: in what he thought were his final moments, kemp said he thought of his family. at what point did you say to attack? >> when i see coming from across >> reporter: you knew right away? it could happen anywhere. it could happen anywhere. you can't hide from it. >> reporter: but the terrorists set the room on fire and left. allowing kemp to crawl out through the smoke to the american rescuers trying to reach him. a group linked to al qaeda has claimed responsibility for the attack. authorities would not confirm. officials telling us, regardless, it's terrorism. part of the same kind of global terror recently seen in the paris attacks. mali now added to the growing list of places that have
8:10 am
suffered recent terrorist attacks -- france, egypt, lebanon. the threat level here raised to its second highest level and the president announcing a ten-day state of emergency. dan? here at home, terrorism has become a burning issue in the race to the white house. according to a poll out this morning, 28% of americans now call terrorism the top issue in the presidential race. the new poll also shows three-quarters of americans say they're following this race closely, that's the highest level of attention at this point of any race. let's bring in george stephanopoulos, george, good morning. this new poll shows that donald trump has a firm lead, he's ten points ahead of ben carson. trump doesn't seem to be hurt by ongoing controversial comments. so, is there anything any of his rivals can do to dislodge him. >> that's a great question. his staying power is
8:11 am
extraordinary, dan, now leading the race for four straight months, according to our poll. and as you mentioned, he has that ten-point lead right now. when you look inside the poll, he's leading on all the big issues, the best to handle the economy and terrorism. the only issue that he doesn't lead in trustworthy. that's ben carson and experience, that's jeb bush, jeb bush is at his lowest poll numbers since he got into the race this summer. >> let's talk about jeb bush, he's at 6, is there any hope on the horizon for him, what can he do to turn things around? >> we'll have to see. he's come out more strongly against donald trump. in the last couple of weeks. he still has a lot of money. but it hasn't worked for him so far. even though most republican voters is think he has the best experience to be president. >> and let's talk about the democratic side. bernie sanders is up nine points, but hillary clinton still has a 26-point lead over him, does she really have much to worry about in the nomination fight?
8:12 am
>> when you look at new hampshire it's neck and neck between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. she's got the lead in iowa. they're starting to go at it, bernie sanders is out with new ads in new hampshire this mornings, which alludes to hillary clinton's support for wall. she's going after bernie sanders saying he's going to raise taxes on the middle class. so, this race is heating up. >> george, thank you. i want to remind everyone, george has a big show this with the front-runner donald later this morning on "this week." moving now to the major snowstorm and frigid cold that has slammed the midwest, and certain to have a serious impact on thanksgiving holiday travelers, in the skies and on the roads. rob has the very latest for us. >> incredible snow totals. look at these numbers. 16-plus inches in parts of illinois and michigan, even a foot of snow in iowa, this was an early-season snowfall, very
8:13 am
make no mistake about that. typically, chicago gets its first one inch of snow on december 1st. this storm, they beat it tenfold. overnight, runways shut down by snow and ice. passengers stranded for hours at chicago's o'hare's airport, more than 400 flights canceled as a treacherous early-season snowstorm hits the midwest and the northern plains. chicago slammed with more than 11 inches of snow, making this the second largest snowstorm in november in the city's history. >> hard to believe it was 60 last week and now ten inches of snow. >> reporter: sports fans across the region braving the storm for college football saturday. this 15-hour timelapse showing stadium workers scrambling to remove the snow before kickoff in iowa. >> i have been here in rain,
8:14 am
>> reporter: badger fans here at the university of wisconsin, still making it out to the big game, sitting on snow. high winds in illinois whipping the snowfall into blinding whiteouts. college football games in oklahoma, two of them seeing temperatures in the 20s yesterday. and this morning, hard freeze warnings out now from the ozarks all of the way to the gulf of mexico. chicago, bitterly cold stuff. by tomorrow morning, we start to see this moderate a little bit before it gets to the east coast. big travel coming up this week. another storm coming into the northwest and that will bring in milder temperatures, i think, for the east coast on wednesday but a good swath of rain that will disrupt travel in the midsection of the country. rain and snow across the western half of the country. that's a potent storm, dan, and we'll break that down a later in the hour. >> it's the way he seems so happy when he talks about a big
8:15 am
it's like he's mocking us. but we want to get back to that situation in chicago, right in the middle of that storm, a fire broke out at the hancock center. and abc's phillip mena is right there with the story. >> reporter: dan, good morning. more than 1,000 people live in this building. the fire broke out on the 50th floor, just a few hours before chicago's famous festival of lights took place, where hundreds of thousands of people were gathered below. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: a fireball busting out the 50th floor windows of chicago's iconic hancock building. the john hancock center is one of chicago's most visited tourist attractions and houses 700 residential condominiums. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: packed with tourists, flames broke out in the bedroom of the one
8:16 am
from the street, passersby watching as smoke poured from the sky. >> we started going down and i had my scarf, i was covering my mouth. the smoke was terrible. >> reporter: firefighters say the accidental fire racing through the apartment in just minutes. the only person home, an unnamed woman who was able to escape safely. but, according to officials, neighbors and first responders suffered minor injuries. one police officer rushed to the hospital for smoke inhalation. >> we're getting reports of an officer down on the 50th floor. >> reporter: this morning, all of the rooms on the 50th floor the homes on the 500th floor ordered to revac wait. that chicago police offer who suffered smoke inhalation was trying to warn residents. the building did have smoke detectors but no alarms ever went off. dan. >> phillip, thank you.
8:17 am
we're going to send things over to ron, who's tracking the other stories we're covering, including a terror scare. good morning, everyone. we begin with a major professional wrestling event going ahead in atlanta as scheduled despite an alleged the wwe's annual series will go ahead. despite the hacker group anonymous saying it uncovered an isis threat on that event. they're aware of the purported threat. and is investigating. but no specific or creditable threat. at that venue. donald trump's event at alabama was disrupted by a black lives matter protester. they led that man away as donald trump could be heard urging his removal. >> get him out here, would you, please? get him out of here. throw him out. >> witnesses and a separate video appears to show people in
