to. u.s. officials saying the evidence points to a bomb and isis may be responsible. the 224 victims are laid to rest today. we'll talk about the impact on security at airports here in the u.s. and around the world. we want to start with the investigation this morning and nbc's bill neely in cairo. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. strong suspicions and serious implications perhaps for all of us. u.s. officials saying they have information. they call it evidence. that points to terrorism as a possible cause of this crash, and points to the world's deadliest terror group. from the moment the first rescuers arrived, a bomb was one possible cause of the crash. investigators scouring for clues for six days. now, u.s. intelligence says the evidence indicates it was likely a bomb. isis has twice claim it downed the plane. it's shown no evidence. it is active in the area, and
u.s. officials believe if it was a bomb, isis may be responsible. it's a strong suspicion, not a conclusion, and no evidence of explosives has been found. but it's a suspicion shared by britain. >> we formed the judgment that there is a significant possibility that the russian aircraft was brought down by an explosive device on board. >> reporter: britain, one of three countries stopping all flights to the airport where the plane took off. american aircraft have long been warned away from this area. >> we obviously have a strong desire to get to the bottom of what exactly happened there. >> reporter: no one is ruling out a technical fault as the cause. the black box recorders are still being worked on. but the focus now is on the airport and its workers. >> a member of your terrorist team as an employee would be able to go anywhere.
>> reporter: egypt and russia resent the u.s. and britain suspicions. nina was a 60-year-old grandmother and the first passenger to be buried. there is deep concern among u.s. officials, there's enough circumstantial evidence to suggest she was murdered in midair and wasn't the victim of mechanical failure. >> the egyptians really kicking back this morning. a government minister saying the u.s. theory isn't based on facts, but they fired the head of the airport from where the plane took off. investigators found lack security there. the russians, too, aren't accepting it. 23 russian planes due to land today at the airport. they've just sent in anti-aircraft war missiles to protect their planes in syria. they think they are now a target. >> bill neely in cairo. thank you. >> still questions unanswered. the question we're asking is what does this mean for air
travel in the united states? tom costello covers aviation for us. good morning to you. >> hi, matt. any time you have an incident overseas that heightens the awareness and concerns about security, u.s. official s and ta and homeland security take note and try to apply any lessons they might take from what happened overseas. immediately, no change in security posture at u.s. airports. we should note that no u.s. airlines right now fly into or out of sharm el sheikh egypt. as bill mentioned, there's a notice the faa issued earlier this year, stating that if any u.s. carrier overflows that area, it must be 65,000 feet. they were trying to avoid possibly being within range of missiles. very few, if any, airlines fly that region on a regular basis. with this intense scrutiny on the sinai, it's unlikely any of
them will. in fact, i was checking one flight plan earlier this morning, and it is now diverting around the sinai completely in order to make a fly into dubai. we should note, however, that as you know, the tsa has been under tremendous scrutiny, especially in this week, because it failed yet again in a series of undercover tests in september to catch these mock devices. these mock weapons that were -- inspectors were trying to smuggle through. we've seen this repeatedly, where there have been problems at tsa checkpoints over the years. in september, this happened again. the tsa has committed itself to addressing those security lapses and trying to address the issue immediately. that is not in response to what happened over the sinai, but as you would expect, any time something like this happens overseas, homeland security takes a heightened approach to it. >> tom costello, thank you very much. >> let's dive deeper into this. greg is a former ntsb investigator and kevin is a
national analyst for nbc news. >> you have crash investigators on the scene, intelligence analysts figuring out that end of it. can these investigations go hand in hand, the crash and the forensics? >> they have to go hand in hand, matt, only because now while we were thinking it was an accident, now it looks more to be, basically, an intentional act, if you will. when they look at the wreckage, they'll have a different eye. they're going to be looking for residue. they'll be looking for markers, if you will, for bombs or explosives. >> heavily studying the security at sharm el sheikh airport, in terms of, could a passenger have smuggled something on board, or did someone with access to the plane do something like this? >> absolutely. the airplane, is it sitting overnight unattended? did somebody have access to it? did the catering crew bring something on board? did the servicing folks get something into a portion of the aircraft? of course, people loading the
baggage, did they put something behind a cargo hold? they'll be looking carefully at who had access to the airport during its time on the ground. >> let's turn to kevin for the national security implications. as u.s. officials zero in on the bomb theory, why is that? is it a process of elimination or a matter of going back, looking at the chatter, intelligence circles even before the crash, and seeing it in a new light? >> i think a little bit of both. the british announcing yesterday morning, definitely sparked a frenzy in washington and got everybody asking, why would they go more forward than the americans, saying, first, it may have been an act of terrorism or explosive device. then when the foreign secretary said, that's what they believe happened. i think there's cross-talk between the americans and the british, to figure out, like you said, going back in time, how soon did they know and when? >> after the crash, isis said, we did this. people didn't think it was possible. do u.s. intelligence officials think isis has the planning and
capability to get a bomb on board, or might they have had t help? >> i asked james clapper if they had the ability to shoot down an aircraft. he said it was unlikely but he wouldn't rule it out. most officials are focusing on this video that isis put out, that's shown up, of what looks like to be the plane in the air exploding. if someone was in place ahead of time to film that, that's as much of a red flag as you can find. >> significant piece of evidence, for sure. thank you so much. there's a new twist this morning tied to the shooting death of a beloved police officer in illinois that investigators say was actually a carefully staged suicide. lieutenant gliniewicz's wife and son are also under investigation. nbc is following the story. good morning to you, john. >> good morning. another stunning development in
this story that's already had so many. it appears investigators want to know if lieutenant gliniewicz's secret life was a family affair. >> reporter: this morning, the news that the wife and oldest son of lieutenant charles j. gliniewicz, known as g.i. joe, are reportedly under investigation, is another shock for residents. >> my gosh, g.i. joe went from a hero to a criminal. >> reporter: two months ago, gliniewicz had a hero's funeral. he taught kids about law enforcement. now, investigators say, for seven years, he stole from it. >> thousands of dollars were used by gliniewicz for personal purchases, travel expenses, mortgage payments, personal gym memberships. >> reporter: investigators released startling new details about how gliniewicz faked his own crime scene. placing his pepper spray, baton and glasses to disguise his
suicide as a death in the line of duty. gliniewicz, who had experience staging crime scenes, even fired a shot into his cell phone and bullet proof vest before the fatal shot into his upper torso. authorities released text messages they say show gliniewicz feared his crimes would be discovered. this text, this situation right here would give her the means to crucify me if discovered. gliniewicz's wife and son are under scrutiny. they said they'd accocooperatedh the task force's investigation. >> the most emotional experience of my life, and the only way i could express it is to say it was complete shame. >> the 100 club of chicago is a civic group that supports families of first responders who die in the line of duty. they gave an initial payment of
$15,000 to the gliniewicz family. now, for the first time, they want their money back. matt, savannah? >> john yang, thank you very much. >> a story that's been turned on its head. now, to the presidential race. republican donald trump is trying something new on the campaign trail, as he gets ready to host "saturday night live" this weekend. it's courting controversy. we'll talk live to mr. trump in a moment, but first, peter alexander has more. good morning to you. >> good morning. we're under 90 days from the iowa caucuses, and donald trump system officially hitting the airwaves in iowa and elsewhere. the billionaire spending his own money, $300,000, to get his message out. >> reporter: fighting to fend off his strongest challenge yet, donald trump for the first time in this campaign, is paying to be heard. >> if the people of iowa vote for me, you'll never be disappointed. i don't disappoint people.
>> reporter: trump's new radio ads debuting in early contest states. >> i don't feel the need, but a lot of people want me to do it. we're leading in new hampshire and all over. >> reporter: after securing his name on the new hampshire ballot, trump teed off on the new front runner, ben carson. >> ben cannot do the job. you know what? he's very nice and some would say, that was a nasty -- look, i don't care. >> reporter: sparking a backlash, trump's hosting gig on "saturday night live" this weekend. latino groups protesting outside nbc's new york city headquarters, delivering a petition, demanding nbc and "saturday night live" revoke his invitation. racism is not funny. >> because of equal time rules for television, mr. trump can only speak for four seconds in this promo. >> let me say this, ben carson is a complete and total loser. >> reporter: nbc later removed the ad. carson declined to attack trump
when reporters told him about the "snl" promo. >> i discovered when i was in grade school that those tactics really are for grade school. >> reporter: meanwhile, trump is also taking aim at marco rubio. >> marco rubio has a disaster on his finances. he has a disaster on his credit cards. >> reporter: rubio is facing scrutiny about how he used a state party credit card when he was a florida legislature. two years of credit card statements haven't been disclosed. >> if there was something personal, i would pay it. if it wasn't, the party paid it. >> for this weekend's "snl," car s carson said he won't watch trump host. he wouldn't if he was asked. he said, i don't like making light of the presidency like that. >> thank you so much. donald trump is with us now by phone. mr. trump, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> let's talk about your new ads.
they're just out this morning. i'm assuming you would not waste your money on ads if you didn't feel you needed to. does this show you're feeling the heat, that the race is tightening? >> i don't think so. fox came out with their poll last night, a big one, and i was substantially in the lead. i'm leading in almost every poll. but i will tell you, i've had heat because i haven't spent money. it would be nice if the country could do that. i've spent no one and i'm number one. others spent tens of millions and they're doing poorly. it would be nice -- honestly, wouldn't it be nice if we can do that with education, where we spend more per pupil than any country in the world and we're in 28th place. i wanted to do the ads. i'm putting them in iowa and south carolina and new hampshire. you know, hopefully, they're going to be good ads. it's time for me to advertise a little bit. >> ben carson has momentum in these polls. he tops some and you top others. he said your attacks on him is grade school bullying.
>> he's referring to the "saturday night live." he said he'd never do it. of course, he would. they didn't ask him to do it. "saturday night live" is a special thing. it's like being on "60 minutes." i was on "60 minutes" a month ago. there are iconic brands, iconic things. he'd do it if he was asked. every president probably you can think of, and many of the candidates, have done it. but i don't think they'll ask him. i know if they did ask him, he would do it. >> let me ask you about that. as you are perfectly aware, there are latino groups outside protesting nbc and "snl" because you are hosting this weekend. are you surprised that "snl" asked you to host after there was this split with nbc back in the summer? why did you accept? >> it wasn't so acrimonious. the "apprentice," they renewed with me for 28 sessions. they wanted to do it but i decided i wanted to run for president. i wanted to make the country great again. i told steve burke, a fantastic guy at comcast, i'm going to
run. they renewed the "apprentice," but i decided i couldn't do it because of the time. miss universe, there was a problem, to be honest, and i ended up buying their interest. then i sold it to img, the whole thing. it worked out amazingly well for me. there's no problem whatsoever with nbc. now, the reason they put me there is a simple reason. ratings. if i didn't get ratings, they wouldn't put me there. >> you were critical of marco rubio and his handling of his own finances, suggesting that the way he's handled his personal finances perhaps is a good way to determine how he might handle the country's finances. my question to you is, does that invite scrutiny of your own business record? you talked about using the bank rescue loss strategically in the past. here's the bottom line, if a company is doing well, is healthy, robust financially, why do you need to use the bankruptcy laws? >> i'm no different than many of the people that you have on your
show. the biggest business leaders in the world. we all do it. we use the laws of the land. i've had 500 companies of different kinds, and over the years, i've used it three or four times, as has -- i could name people. why should i name them. you have the list. virtually everybody you write about has used the laws over the years corporately. i never went bankrupt, but corporately. frankly, i've made a lot of money using the laws. i've also bought a lot of things out of bankruptcies. i pick out things in bankruptcies and end up buying tremendous pieces of land, tremendous assets out of bankruptcy. i've used the bankruptcy laws, which are the laws of the land, for, you know, corporately. i could name the biggest names in business, and they've almost all used them. i mean, so i have had no backlash on that. as far as the rest, i built an unbelievable company with some of the great assets of the world. everybody knows that. i made my filings and everybody was shocked at how big it is.
they didn't think it was as big as it is. they were shocked how incredible the company itself is. i'm honored by it. i've been a public book. you've been covering me, you and matt, for a long time. i've been a public book. >> we have indeed, and mr. trump, we'll see you in a different role this saturday on "saturday night live." thank you for your time. >> thank you, savannah. former president george h.w. bush out with criticism for some of the key figurh figures in hi administration, including dick cheney and donald rumsfeld. >> the ycritiques are in a new biograp biography. he said dick cheney became different from the one i knew and worked with. >> for rems felumsfeld, he said think he served the president poorly and had an iron blank view of everything. he was an arrogant fellow. >> on the topic of gay marriage,
personally, i believe in traditional marriage but people should be able to do what they want to do without discrimination. the biography is scheduled for release next week, already making headlines. only once in every 1,000 years do rokerthon and no shave november come together at the same time. it's happening now. al is about to take off on an epic journey across the country. al, where are you, liberty national? >> liberty international airport. we are at the united terminal, getting ready to head to hawaii. can't wait. we'll tell you about that. there is a bigger storm system getting together. it's going to be making its way across the country. look what it did in denver. this is thundersnow. it's snowing and thunder and lightning. some areas picking up 9 to 12 inches of snow. that is making its way east. we'll show you where it'll cause problems. where they don't need it, down in texas.

russian plane over egypt over the weekend, that isis could be responsible. all 224 people on board that metro jet airliner died. a suspect armed with a high-powered rifle terrorized a san diego neighborhood on wednesday, brought air traffic to a halt, as well. the gunman fired random shots into the approach path at san diego international airport. that prompted the faa to stop flights from landing for a period. the suspect was finally taken into custody. donald trump is launching the first ads of his presidential campaign today. the radio spots are scheduled to run in iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. trump's republican rival, senator marco rubio is in the headlines for something he said during a q&a with young professionals. when asked to name someone other than a politician he'd like to have a beer with, rubio said, malala, a practicing muslim who is not of drinking age. that received a lot of
attention. >> papers had fun with that this morning. also this morning, quinten tarantino is speaking out about the controversy that has police units calling for a boycott of his new movie. natalie has the latest on this. >> he's not backing down. the oscar-winning film maker is firing back again at critics, who are angered by his stance against police brutality. tarantino saying police groups are fixing a fight to avoid addressing a bigger problem. >> stop shooting unarmed people. they don't want to deal with that. they'd rather start arguments with celebrities than examine the concerns put before them by a citizenry that's lost trust in them. >> reporter: quentin tarantino doubling down over comments the director made last month at a rise up october rally in new york. >> when i see murder, i cannot stand by. i have to call the murdered the murdered, and i have to call the
murderers the murderers. >> i was referring to eric garn n garner. i was referring to tamir rice. that's what i was referring to. >> reporter: since then, the biggest advocacy groups called for a boycott of his upcoming film. >> got room for one more? >> reporter: los angeles police chief says he specifically takes issue with tarantino's use of the word "murderer," telling nbc news, i take the word "murderer very seriously. i hunt murderers for a living. i've lived with murder my whole life. adding, a homicide that occurs during a police use of force is rarely a murder. the rally tarantino attended took place four days after nypd randolph holder was killed in the line of duty. while tarantino called that death a strategy, he stress td
protest was for families of those killed by police and the date couldn't be rescheduled. >> we had over 40 families come out and tell their story and say their loved one's name. >> say his name. >> so because that happened, we're going to say, no, no, don't tell your story. i know we flew you out here. we'll do it another time. it's not convenient. >> reporter: tarantino isn't worried about security or protests at events for his new film, adding many officers are fans of his work. >> they're going to read what i said and watch this show. they'll hear what i have to say. i think they'll make up their own mind and we'll see what happened. >> we reached out to a company behind tarantino's new movie for commentme comment. they didn't respond. tarantino points out while the company would prefer this issue hadn't come up, it is the same that produced "fruit vail station," and the studio supp t
supports him. >> if somebody expected him to back down and apologize, that's not his intentions. >> the film is set to release around the holidays. this will continue until then. >> thanks. let's get a check of the weather from al, who is in the aur airport at newark, getting ready to launch rockerthon2, in theaters nowhere. >> that's right. only on your nbc station. we're heading to hawaii. it kicks off tomorrow. where it's nice and warm. guess what? it'll be warm here in the eastern third of the country. why? we'll take a look. here's what we're expecting. we have this big ridge of high pressure off the eastern seaboard. it is pumping up warm, moist air from the tropics. this ridge expands into canada. as it does, the warm, moist flows of air come in. look what we'll be seeing. temperatures are anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees above normal, from texas to maine. we're looking for widespread records. temperatures getting up 21 degrees above normal in rochester. 15 degrees above normal in new

help, so i traveled to columbus, ohio, at their headquarters to come up with a plan. >> how are you? >> nice to meet you. glad to have you. >> shane is the president of netjets aviation. >> we started planning this trip, and it's this giant jigsaw. >> that's right. >> it has my head spinning. >> we're excited to be a part of rokerthon, but this is what we do every day. this is just one part of a jigsaw puzzle we put together. >> inside their operation center, hundreds of employees are coordinating the fleet. my favorite area, the weather area. >> jamie can take you through what he's looking at. >> we're watching the weather in the desert southwest. very strong upper level low, kicking off shower and thunderstorm activity across portions of new mexico. >> you have a very good voice. have you done any television weather? >> no, no, i haven't. >> good. keep it that way. >> we're trying to break the guinness world record. how can you help us? >> we're committed to getting you where you want to go at the

>> and that's your latest forecast. matt? >> dylan, thank you very much. the wait is almost over for james bond fans. 007 is back and on a new mission to take down the elusive crimer, spr "spectre." i can't wait to get a look at that car. >> you must know the 00 program is officially dead, which leads me to speculate exactly why you came. so, james, why did you come? >> i came here to kill you. >> i thought you came here to die. >> it's all a matter of perspective. >> daniel craig, welcome back. good to see you. >> good morning. how are you? >> great. women's hearts will flutter
watching you as bond in the new movie. men's hearts will flutter watching this aston martin 10. >> it doesn't exist in the real world. they designed it for the movie. >> is the story true you wrecked a bunch of them? >> a few. >> what's a few? >> three or four. >> can i get one of the damaged ones cheap? >> no. but you can, if you're feeling flush, go bid on one. we're going to raise money for charity. >> it is so smoking hot. did you have fun with this? this has all the bells and whistles. it has the toys, the incredible, stunning locations, the stunning women, the threat to the world. is it a classic bond film, or is there something different here? >> i think it is a classic bond film. i think sam, me, the producers, we set out to celebrate what james bond is about. at the core of it, there's a great story. there's a love story. bond, again, goes back into his
past. we discover a little more about him. but we wanted to just throw the kitchen sink at it and have fun with it. >> is the idea you try to push the envelope with each of the movies but stay true enough that it's familiar to long-time fans? >> you can't ever forget it's a bond movie. that's the deal. as far as i'm concerned, as long as you remember that, everything else is on the table. you can do -- you can still have characters that have a reality to them and react with each other in a real way. it's a james bond movie first and foremost. >> everybody makes a lot about the man that plays james bond. i always felt that bond is as good as the villain he faces in the movies. >> mm-hmm. >> cristoph waltz plays a fantastic villain. what do you need to know about him? >> that it's cristoph waltz. >> what else? >> we drew up a list of people we wanted to play this part, and his name was at the top.
he agreed to do it. he offers so much, as far as a villain is concerned. he's also a brilli yaliant acto >> james bond movies over the years, they keep up with the times. you can't have villains with cold war plans for the world in 2015. this is very much about the information age and surveillance. >> yup. >> the preponderance of surveillance. what's his plot for the world? what should we know about that? >> well, he is trying to bring together the intelligence sources of the world, but not in a good way. he's trying to bring them together, and he's trying to get at his -- get the most amount of information so that he has control of the world. it's a kind of clash of old world and new. with bond, he always does have a foot in the past. he's the kind of guy that wants to go in the field and wants to look the enemy in the eye and wants to do this.
what cristoph and a new character we have in here, they represent the blanket surveillance and drones and things like that. >> let me get to the comments you made that got a lot of attention. >> please, do, yeah. >> in an interview, you were asked about bond. you said, quote, i'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. no, not at the moment. i'm over it at the moment. we're done. i want to be done. put it in perspective. i read it as, this is an incredibly grueling process. when it's over, you've got to think about something else. >> i think when you're asked -- sam put it eloquently last night, more than i did in the quote. if you're 200 yards from the end of a marathon and someone runs up to you and says, are you going to run another marathon? two words you use, right? >> not on a morning show. >> not on a morning show. that's what that was about. i've had massive amounts of fun making this film. i mean, probably more fun on
this film than all the others put together. the simple answer at the moment is, i don't think about it. i don't want to think about it. i want to think about other things. i want to go home. >> hypothetically, if it's the last one, are you happy with the mark you've made on the franchise? >> i couldn't be happier. i've had a wonderful, wonderful time making these movies, and maybe i'll make another one. i don't know. >> keep our fingers crossed. you're fantastic. >> thank you very much. >> i want that car so badly. i don't want to bid on it, but if you want to give me one, i'll take it. >> it doesn't work like that. >> we'll catch up with your co stars in the next half hour. "spectre" opens up tomorrow. next up, live performance from meghan trainor. first, on a thursday morning, this is "today" on nbc.

out of these. >> should i put these in? >> you've eaten most of them. >> yeah. do you like milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips? >> dark. >> we had 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. now we have a few less. >> slightly. >> i'll do it like this. >> in they go. let's pretend it's all mixed up. here's what it looks like. >> yes. >> these are called what? >> ramekins. in they go like this. what i find really helpful is that you can make them up ahead like this, and either put them in the fridge or in the freezer. >> so you don't have to do this thanksgiving morning. >> so you do them and need hardly any time. 13 to 15 minutes. five minutes resting time. >> then you cook it. this is what they look like.
