7:02 am
along with some jordanian forces when a jordanian military officer or police officer of some kind reportedly opened fire, went on a shooting spree at a u.s. training facility there in jordan. the reports are still very sketchy. we've seen these kinds of reports before in iraq and afghanistan where friendly forces have turned their fire on americans. it's unclear whether the americans were the target, according to officials, because palestinians were also killed. the investigation is still under way. >> we'll keep in touch with you this morning as we learn more. let's turn now to the presidential race. ben carson is facing intense new scrutiny on the campaign trail as republican presidential candidates get ready for tomorrow night's debate we'll talk exclusively with the chairman. rnc in a moment, but first let's bring in nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. we're in milwaukee ahead of tomorrow night's republican debate, an ben carson has come

discrepancies in his life story. it's a compelling and powerful life story that he's parlayed into a successful presidential campaign, but this morning carson insists that he's not being vetted but is being targeted by the news media. ben carson's political future may depend on how well he weathers questions about his past. >> it's not particularly getting under my skin. obviously it's helping me. >> reporter: carson raising a stunning $3.5 million in one week as scrutiny grows over a claim to scholarship offer to west point and violent youths and acts protecting white classmates during a 1968 race riot. carson consistently dismissing his creditics. >> you're asking me about something that occurred 50 years ago and you expect me to have the details on it. forget about it. it's not going to happen. >> reporter: one british newspapers revealing an inside like at carson's maryland home complete with paintings of carson, one over the fireplace
7:04 am
the home, like a museum, with awards, certificates and personal memorabilia. carson's chief competitor donald trump isn't letting up, sooerks egging in on carson's description of his path violence as pathological. >> if you have a pathological disease, that's a problem. it's a serious statement when you say you have a pathological disease because as i understand it you can't really cure it. >> reporter: trump's latest show-stopper, leading "saturday night live" to its best ratings in three years despite mixed reviews. one latino group protesting trump's appearance promising comedian larry david will get its payout even though he heckled trump as a joke. >> trump's a racist! >> it's larry david. what are you doing, larry? >> i heard if i yelled that they would give me $5,000.

7:06 am
when someone runs for president and has no political experience and no record in public office to run on and they decide to run on the elements of an interesting and inspiring life story, are specific and pointed questions about element of that life story appropriate? >> well, look, i would imagine some questions are appropriate, but i do believe that this is a totally crazy obsession over incredible details from 30 and 40 years ago, whether it be this issue or some of these other issues highlighted earlier in the segment among other candidates. the fact is, you know, we kind of wish the media would just be obsessed or half obsessed with hillary clinton's lies of many years and -- >> except that dr. carson -- >> four people died in benghazi and e-mails and everything tells. >> dr. carson says he's being targeted and not vetted and if he says he's being vetted more
7:07 am
including barack obama who faced years of birther questions and hillary clinton who you just mentioned who has faced decades of questions about her marriage, her personal life, her e-mails, 11 hours in a chair in front of ago. is he being more severely vetted than anyone else? >> yeah, but the difference is that the media is actually, you know -- they do have an actual vendetta or at least an agenda against some of these candidates. in regard to hillary clinton, the media sort of, yeah, they cover it, but they cover it with a laugh and a wink and a nod and isn't it horrible that she had to sit in a chair for 11 hours. i mean, that's the tone of the coverage of hillary clinton. it's a tone of this is silly, let's move on, whereas with the republicans it's, hey, can you believe that, you know, 40 years ago this happened or that, hey, you know, this credit card over here, i mean, those are things that might be interesting for, you know, a question, but not an obsession. i would say that hillary clinton
7:08 am
people ought to be obsessed with. >> let's be clear here. if ben carson has woven stories like the west point story into the fabric of his interesting and inspiring life story, doesn't it make it fair game for questions? >> sure, and people asked the question and he answered it. so, i mean, you know, i think, okay, asked and answered, and i think people need to move on to the next question. i'm not saying that questions aren't appropriate. of course, people can ask questions, but i think you get to a place where all the questions have been asked. >> real, real quickly. i know you wrote a letter to the chairman of nbc news following the last debate on cnbc. there were a lot of questions and a lot of criticism about the tone of that debate, and you suspended ties with this network for future debates. i also know you've spoken to the chairman of nbc news, andy lack. are you making progress in terms of renewing ties with this network on future debates? >> well, look, i mean, here's the issue.
7:09 am
cnbc. abc's the parent organization. >> nbc. >> my belief -- >> nbc, sorry. nbc is the parent organization. my belief is that there has to be some consequences for what we saw a couple weeks ago in denver. you know, people did something that -- that we didn't obviously -- wasn't promise the. it wasn't expected, and there has to be consequences, and so, yeah, did i have a good conversation with andy lack, and by the way, we'll be talking to the candidates about the future of that debate, but we're looking forward to the debate this week, and i think it's going to be a much better debate, and i think it's going to be a good time to put that cnbc debate behind us. >> reince priebus, the chairman of the rnc. always good to see you. thank you for your time. >> and to the white house, president obama and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will try to mend their fractured relationship, the first time they will meet face

7:11 am
investigators are 90% sure this was a bomb as an outright lie. it says there's an intelligence and media war against it, and it is denying allegations of lax security here at airport from where the plane took off. egyptian officials say cctv footage of baggage handlers and security the day the plane took off shows nothing unusual. security was more than excellent, they say, and no worker is under suspicion. they denied reports of equipment failure and workers not being searched properly. but this airport official clearly wasn't used to being thoroughly searched. no, he says, i don't take off my shoes when i come through here. fine. then i won't go in. the suspicion that a worker put a bomb in the cargo hold has sent some wares through world airlines. >> it is as a result of what
7:12 am
it's another game-changer for the industry. >> reporter: israel won't confirm reports that its intelligence heard isis fighters boasting about taking down the plane. one egyptian investigator told the reuters news agency they are 90% sure it was a bomb, based on the final noise in the cockpit. investigators are now searching sand from the site for evidence of explosive residue. the fbi has agreed to help, asked by the russians. >> i hope it's a wake-up call to putin and i hope to some extent it's a wake-up call to us. >> russia still waiting for definitive proof of what cause the its worst airline disaster. and the world may have to wait a long time. egypt is leading this investigation, and it's in no hurry at the moment to confirm any theory. matt, savannah. >> all right. bill neely in cairo, thank you. here at home an investigation is under way into a tragic accident just outside

7:14 am

rheumatologist-prescribed biologic. >> we are back at 7 :44. this morning on "rossen reports" a dangerous trend. >> this morning jeff rossen is here with a powerful and personal experiment. >> reporter: good morning to you. i talk about dangerous behavior all the time and i stand here and call people out when they are wrong. well, this morning something a little different. i am calling myself out. just a couple of weeks ago i was doing a story about a different unrelated topic involving my kids. i showed this picture. we're going to call it up right here of my kids right here on the "today" show. there is that photo. my kids love trains so i often took them down to the train tracks to take photos. well, just minutes after the story aired i was bombarded by e-mails, tweets and facebook messages telling me how dangerous it is, how could i, people die this way. to be honest. i never thought about it. always thought that i would see
7:45 am
a train coming. i mean, it is a train after all, but, still, i looked into it and boy was i wrong. this morning a game-changer for you and for me. you're watching an emergency in progress. they are recording on the tracks and suddenly notice a train. they run for safety, but it's too late. this woman is killed. just weeks ago 16-year-old john was hit and killed, taking these photos with his girlfriend for a school project. >> was too late before they realized the train was coming. >> but this may be the most haunting photo of all. two sisters and their best friend taking selfies on the tracks. what they can't see or hear is that train in the background speeding toward them. just three seconds later all the girls were hit and killed. >> this is absolutely a
7:46 am
preventable phenomenon and loss. my girls did not have to lose their life. >> reporter: it's one of the latest trends in photography. people taking selfies, wedding photos, even graduation pictures on active tracks. the photos posted all over social media and what most don't know it's illegal and dangerous. this year alone 291 injured, another 343 killed, trespassing on the tracks. off. >> trains are very loud so people think they are very loud and the truth is they are if an engineer sees someone on the tracks, even if they apply an emergency brake it takes a mile or more for them to stop. >> reporter: so do you think you could hear a train coming? csx railroad giving us special access to the tracks. in fact, there are csx workers just off camera here to keep us safe. there's actually a freight train on its way coming down the track all the way in the distance.
7:47 am
i'm not sure if you can see the headlines or not. i'm going to stand here with my back to the train not paying attention like so much do when we're on the tracks taking selfies. we'll see how close this train gets before i actually hear it. would i have time to jump out of the way. okay. here comes the train. i don't hear anything at all. it's getting closer and closer and still not a peep. i hear it right now and here it is, look at, that basically right on top of me. they are pretty quiet for as big as they are. boy, that is an amazing example to prove that you just don't have time to jump out of the way. watch again from a different angle this. camera is just inches from the track. you can't hear a thing and keep listening.
7:48 am
our camera do you hear it. >> and this train is only going 25 miles per hour. some trains get up to 70, 80, even 90. >> the bottom line as you've seen here today you're not necessarily going to see or hear the train coming miles away. stay off the tracks. it's illegal. it's dangerous and it's deadly. >> reporter: was shocked when i was standing there and doing it. it's an important lesson for us all. train engineers say they see this all the time. they don't know what to do because they can't stop in time. officials say put it this way. you wouldn't stand in the middle of a highway and take a photo. don't do it on the train tracks. >> no room for error. >> i'm really surprised at that. interesting, jeff. >> i was surprised and all the energy and noise is in the back of the train, not the front. >> makes sense. >> thank you, jeff. coming up, the fun times, the feuds, the vacations, what your kids will remember most about you. dylan? >> and, guys, you won't believe the icon who is joining our no
