lot to get to this morning. president obama is in manila right now for the apex summit, talking trade and also ways to coordinate with china and others re guarding isis. this coming on the heels of the g-20 summit p. the president spoke yesterday backing up his plan to defeat isis. >> we have always understood that this would be a long-term campaign. there will be set backs and success. the terrible events in paris were obviously a terrible and sickening setback. even as we greave with our french friends, we can't lose sight that there have been progress being made. isis also releasinged a new propaganda video offering an attack on the united states. the video has yet to be
authenticated. and the hunt is still on for the eight member terror attack group. and a leading belgium jihadist has been named as the master mind behind the paris attack. and in paris, there are signs of healing. the eiffel tower was lit. nbc's kelly joins us from pair ws the -- paris with the latest. >> reporter: first off, there were 128 more raids overnight, according to the french prime minister, weapons seized once again. this adds to the 160 sum that have happened over the last couple days. nearly 300 raids seizing all sorts of weapons and making arrests throughout france and more air strikes as well. 10 french war planes hitting

and as international powers map out a strategy half way around the world, there with new worries at home. a video that threatens washington d.c. >> reporter: new isis video says america is next. the terrorists says as we struck france in the center of paris, we will strike america at its center in washington. is it real or propaganda? a planned mission now focusing on isis. the u.s. is stepping up air strikes in syria and even now with isis showing it can strike terror in the heart of europe, president obama mapping out his game plan. >> the events in paris were a terrible and sickening setback. and as we greave with our
friends, we can't lose sight that there have been progress being made. the strategy we're putting forward is ultimately going to work. >> reporter: the u.s. has started sharing more intelligence with paris. an isis capability u.s. intelligence never predicted. >> it's clear to me that isil has an internal agenda that they are determined to carry out these type of attacks. so, i would anticipate that this is not the only operation that isil has in the pipeline. >> i don't want to make everybody nervous but i feel the same way i felt before 9/11, that something very well could happen here. >> reporter: so, how to stop
experts say more air power, more naval power and diplomacy and better intelligence. figuring out whether isis can really do to washington what it did to paris. >> american officials say the strongest defense against an attack in the u.s. is good intelligence. but the u.s. says it's getting harder to monitor terrorism suspects, something they call going dark. pete williams explains. >> reporter: though u.s. intelligence officials say they don't can yet know how they kept in touch, they would be shocked if they didn't use one method that can't be monitored. isis has recently been running a 24-hour help desk.
world wide how to use encryption saucht soft ware. they say when they find someone sympathetic in twitter, they are sent to those applications that don't unscramble it until it's received. impossible for the government to monitor, even with a court order. and i've set this one to delete after four seconds. i'm sending it to my colleague, lauren, it's received and 4, 3, 2, 1, it's gone. forever. european officials warn before the paris attack about another way to elude surveillance. even gaming consoles, like play station four can be used to send voice and text messages hard to keep track of. >> i heard, play station 4 is very, very difficult.
online groups come and go so quickly. they call it security by ubsecurity. >> and we're joined now by medal of honor recipient. good morning, corporal. >> good morning p.. >> we're just learning that traces of explosives were found in the downed jedt liner. will this cause putin to react? >> for the united states and russia to work more closely together so we can actually share intelligence, something that has rarely been done before and not with any great fervor since the second world war but this is serious business and we're going to have to get started talking with russia on a regular basis and sharing
difficult to do and hasn't been done lately. and second, we havee to focus on the methods by which this plane was brought down. we spend a lot of time in lines, getting our baggage checked and going through x ray machines and all the rest of that stuff but these explosives were brought on the aircraft, by ground crew, there are lots of them, they have a tendency to get right in the line, right through the tsa line without having their badges checked closely, they're just looked at, not a lot of supervision. there are hundreds of these people in every airport in many many shifts. this is extremely difficult to supervise but a greater effort need to be taken if we're going to prevent this kind of thing in the future. >> colonel, i want to ask you
about the president. because there's increasing pressure on him to take swift action against icesis. he says he's not going to change course. not necessarily a popular opinion but is it the right one? >> if your objective is to destroy isis, that's something one president can't do because one of the things that's really needed is not just a lot of people or a lot of air strikes and actually a lot of people on the ground, which we're not going to provide but a lot of time, it was general crystal who said, unequivocally that any effort to destroy terrorism that eminates from outside the country is something that takes at least a decade. so, the president -- he's got a plilt
strategy has been withdrawal and this is clearly not going to work very well at this poibt and it's going to require dedication and by the congress and the people and agreement to do something in this vein is not going to come that easy. >> thanks for the insight. gop presidential hopefuls are lining up to bash president obama's ongoing strategy against isis. some are calling expanded military involvement but perhaps a deeper divide this morning, most candidates requiring that we refuse the refugees due next year. >> reporter: is the u.s. turning its back on people who are suffering the most? >> well, that's certainly what we would like to see. we can bring isis to an end but our number one obligation is to keep our people safe.
>> reporter: all three of the current governors in the 2016 race oppose welcoming refugees. new jersey governor chris christie is even saying no orfns and they're a part of a growing list refusing to take refugees in their state. although there are questions about whether that refusal is legal. >> a lot going on news wise and weatherwise. bill karins joining us. and that was the case yesterday, 40 tornado reports. thankfully, they're mostly in rural areas of western kansas and north rntern portions of texas
