7:01 am
not far from the scene of the san bernardino shootings robbers shatter jewelry cases. 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 and people who heard it think it's gunshots. they react running for their lives. 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.
7:02 am
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 white 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 americans and in fact saying stay the course against isis, promising to destroy the terrorist group, arguing 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 declaration in primetime from president obama. >> this was an act terrorism designed to kill innocent people. >> reporter: president said there's no evidence the.
7:03 am
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 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: noticeably absent any major shift in strategy, the president calling on congress to ban assault weapons and to bar anyone on a no-fly list from
7:04 am
>> what could possibly be the argument for allowing a terror weapon? it's a matter of national security. >> reporter: while insisting he identifies with americans' fears, the president said the west is not at war against islam, cautioning americans not to singl 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. matt and savannah? >> 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.
7:05 am
>> 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. >> may god bless the united states of america. >> reporter: it took only 990 seconds after president obama finished speaking for donald trump to tweet is that all there is? we need a new president, fast! later trump tweeted, 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: other republican ted cruz. if i am elected president, i will direct the department of defense to destroy isis. ben carson called it strange that it took four days from the attack to respond. and even more strange that
7:06 am
proof his policies are working. since the san bernardino massacre, the republican criticism has been fierce. >> we have a situation in our country where 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 is urgent >> reporter: 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, and iia. stand by there. we want to 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 since 2010. these are moments of importance and crisis. because that have are you surprise that had in this speech
7:07 am
terms of strategy or policy, that it was basically stay the course? >> i'm surprised by that. i'm also surprise that had he 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, 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. not for us sitting at 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 fundamental responsibility of washington, to 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
7:08 am
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 at 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 strategy to announce, having elevated this to a sunday night primetime speech from the oval office which is, you know, incredibly -- >> rarified air. >> rarified air, us a point out, and to not have a new strategy, to not explain new military
7:09 am
or to embrace some sort of unifying vision really is a problem. our new poll is indicating that there are real concerns about terrorism, and there is a partisan divide on this, but so many people are now after it and san bernardino bringing it home. he needs to speak after paris. wrong for him to not correct the imagery of jv >> 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 because of 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. >> this isn't a business as usual moment. >> right. >> and too much of what he's done, including last night, using the oval office, was business as usual. a repeating basically what he
7:10 am
nothing new and no sense of urgency which is what a lot of americans are feeling. >> mark halperin and andrea mitchell, good to have you both. thank you. >> 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. miguel, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. the fbi is still processing crime scenes. they are looking for evidence overseas and here at home as the 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 a momma's boy born and raised in the u.s. speaking to an italian newspapers syed farook sr. says his son became obsessed against israel and shared isis leader al bahardi's ideology to create an islamic state.
7:11 am
>> reporter: farook with his wife tashfeen malik carried out the deadliest act of terror in the u.s. since 9/11. at their home 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 officials say he sought mental massacre. marquez bought the assault rifles used in the shooting three to four years ago later acquired by farook. >> seemed like normal everyday americans. >> reporter: every day in san bernardino they pray for the victims as families prepare to sierra clay sierra claiborne was 27. she will always be her daddy's little girl. >> i give god all the glory for
7:12 am
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 evidence. matt and savannah? >> miguel almaguer out in california, miguel, thank you. let's talk about that international part of the investigation t.stretches all the way to pakistan where tashfeen malik was born and returned for college before she eventually iride of to the u.s. on a special fiance visa. bill neely has traveled to islamabad, pakistan this morning. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. tashfeen malik is a mystery to her family and to authorities here, all of whom are trying to work out why a young mother
7:13 am
of so many others the way she did. locked. her family, including her father gulzar malik, have fled, but not not before pakistani officials extremists. at the college where she studied pharmacy for five years they insist she was not radicalized there >> the radical-minded culture, 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 mosque, clerics denied any link to her. some women students from this mosque pledged allegiance to isis last year.
7:14 am
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 she did though was very clear, very deadly and 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 later. what no one knows is where she learned to use and fire a weapon with such deadly force. matt? >> all right.
7:15 am
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. attorney general loretta lynch said sunday that investigators don't yet know which terror group's propaganda the couple was following. even though tashfeen malik posted a statement of support for isis to facebook around the time of the attack. members of the family in pakistan have told american reporters that before she came to the u.s. she was putting up pro-jihadist comments on social 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 larger terror cell or that anybody else was involved. the fbi hopes the answers to those questions will be found on the computer hard drives and the
7:16 am
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 they are having some success. so far officials say 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 burks what the fbi wants to know is what they were thinking and those answers, they hope, are on those devices. matt in the. >> 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 in the. >> the pacific northwest cannot catch a break. every single day there's been a major weather system, the typical el nino pattern, all this moisture streaming in off the pacific and eve been seeing round and round of heavy rain. jet stream in the upper levels of the atmosphere moving at 200 miles per hour and all of these
7:17 am
the pacific northwest will get slammed with heavy rain and gusty winds through thursday. winds have already gusted up to 60 near 80 miles per hour, and as we go through the day today, we'll seat heaviest rain across southwestern oregon and on tuesday it moves back into northwestern washington state. we will see some mountain snow but mainly above 6,000 feet. it's really the rain that's our biggest issue where we could see another 5 up to 7 to 9 inches of rain. this could lead to some minor flooding in the river. this part of the country can handle all that rain and, of course, this is very good news when you talk about mountain snow. it gets you through the winter months and eventually through to the summer. we're looking at significant rainfall over pretty much the next week. that's a look at the weather isn't it funny that the people you're closest to are also the hardest to shop for. but if you know where to look for inspiration, you can find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. low prices on everything you
