7:00 am
the bay. back at 7:25 with a live local news update. >> yes, we will. while we can get a clear look at the golden gate bridge with the sunrise, we'll take it. good morning. terror in the u.s. officials say it was likely a bomb that brought down that airliner and that isis may be responsible. we're live with the latest from egypt. >> what did they know, the wife and son of the police officer who police say now staged his suicide. >> he went from a hero to a criminal. >> where the investigation goes from here. >> not laughing.
7:01 am
>> hey, hey, ho, ho, donald trump has got to go. >> and "saturday night live" yanks this promo. >> let me just say this, ben carson is a complete and total losers. >> we will talk to trump live. >> and showstopper. ♪ because there's nothing like your love to get me high ♪ >> justin timberlake goes a little bit country. the performance that brought down the show. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" live from rockefeller plaza. >> the story of this russian plane crash becoming more and
7:02 am
more troubling with a lot of information coming in in the last several hours. >> u.s. officials now say the evidence points to a bomb and that isis may be responsible, as the first of the 224 victims are laid to rest today. we're going to talk about the possible impact on security here and around the world. but we want to talk about the investigation this morning. bill neely. >> reporter: 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 claimed
7:03 am
it downed the plane, it's shown no evidence. 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. >> britain one of three countries stopping all flights to the airports 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 a cause. the black box recorders are still being worked on. but the focus now son the airport and its workers.
7:04 am
>> if you've infiltrated a member of your terrorist team, they would have cart blanche to go anywhere. >> egypt and russia resent the u.s. csuspicions. there is now deep concern among u.s. officials there's enough circumstantial evidence to suggest she was murdered in mid-air and wasn't the victim of mechanical failure. well, the egyptians really kicking back this morning, a government minister saying the u.s. theory isn't based on facts but they've fired the head of the airport from where the plane took off and investigators have found really lax security there. 23 russian planes due to land today at that airport but they just sent in anti-aircraft missiles to protect their aircraft in syria. they clearly think they are now a target.
7:05 am
>> still a lot of questions unanswered. what does this mean for air travel here in the united states? tom costello, good morning to you. >> i time you have an incident that heightens security and they take note and try to apply any lessons they might take from what happened overseas. but immediately no change in security posture at u.s. airports. no u.s. airlines right now fly into or out of sharm el-sheik. they must overfly the area at at least 26,000 feet. however, very few in any airlines overfly that area on a regular basis.
7:06 am
now with this intense scrutiny, it's unlikely any of them will. i was checking one flight plan earlier this morning and it is now diverting around the sinai completely in order to make a plight into dubai. the tsa has been under tremendous scrutiny, especially just 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 inspectors were trying to smuggle through. we've seen this repeatedly where there had been problems at tsa checkpoints and yet it happened again. the tsa is addressing those security lapses and address that issue immediately. that is not onlyland security take a very heightened approach
7:07 am
to it. >> gentlemen, good morning to you of you. >> we've got crash investigators on the scene, you've got intelligence analysts trying to figure out that end of it. can these two 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. so when they look at the wreckage, they're going to have a different eye. they're going to be looking for residue, markers, if you, will for bombs or explosives and. >> headily -- could a passenger have smuggled something on board or did someone with access to the plane do this? >> did the catering crew bring something on board?
7:08 am
did the people loading the baggage put something in the bag ang hold? >> if u.s. officials appear to be zeroing in on the bomb theory here, were is that? is it a process of elimination? or is it why would they go a little more forward saying this may well have been an act of terror with an explosive device and then later on coming on and saying they believe that's what happened. i think there's cross talk going on between the americans and british. how soon did they know it and
7:09 am
when did they know. >> do u.s. >>. i asked on monday if isis had the ability to shoot down an aircraft. he said it's unlikely but he wouldn't put it past them. it's now the bomb on board theory. this is what looks look to be that would. >> there's new twist this morning tied to the death of a police officer, that was actually as it turned out a staged suicide. the officer's wife and son is now under investigation.
7:10 am
john yang is following the investigation. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. another stunning twist in the story. they want to know in the lieutenant's secret life was a family affair. this morning the news that the wife and oldest son of the lieutenant known as g.i. joe is reportedly under investigation. >> g.i. joe went from a hero to a criminal. >> he ran the explorer's program teaching kids about law enforcement. now. >> reporter: investigators released startling new details about how he faked his own crime scene, carefully placing his
7:11 am
weapon, baton and glasses to try to disguise his suicide as a death in the line of duty. they say he had experience staging crimes and even shot his cell phone before shooting himself in the torso. "this situation here would give her the news to crucify me if it were discovered." >> the family issued a statement saying they had cooperated with t the. >> it's the most emotional experience of my life. the only way i could express it is to say that there was complete shame. >> the 100 club of chicago is a civic club that supports family
7:12 am
members of policemen and firefighters killed in the line of duty. they gave the family for the first time $15,000 and now they want the money back. >> now. >> it's an appearance that's courting controversy. we'll talk about mr. trump in a minute but first peter alexander has more. >> we're now under 90 days from the iowa caucuses and donald trump is officially hitting the airwaves in iowa and elsewhere. the billionaire who has dismissed super pacs as a cam deal now spending his own money to get his message out. fighting to fend off his strongest challenge yet, donald trump for the first time is paying to be heard.
7:13 am
>> if the people of iowa vote for me, you'll neff be disappointed. i don't disappoint people. >>. >> after securing his name on the ballot, he teed off on the front-runner ben carson. >> ben cannot do the job. people would say oh, that's not nice, he's a very nice man. i don't care. >> reporter: snl and trump are promoting the appearance online. >> because of equal time rules on television, mr. trump can only speak for 4 seconds on television. >> let me say this, ben carson
7:14 am
is a total loser. >> i discovered when i was in grade school that those tactics really are for grade school. >> 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. >> rubio is facing renewed cred id can. >> as for this weekend's snl, carson says he won't be watching. carson aid i think the presidency is a very serious thing adding, "i don't like making light of it, like that."
7:15 am
>> mr. trump is live with us by phone. dorng good morning to you. >> i'm assuming you would not waste your money on ads if you didn't feel you heeded to? can and i'm leading in almost every poll. i've had heat because i haven't spent any money. i've spent no money and i'm number one. others have spent tens of millions of dollars and they're floundering and doing poorly. wouldn't it be nice if we could do that with education. we spend more money that anyone in the world and we're in 28th place.
7:16 am
i he says your attacks are basically grade school bullying and suggests it's beneath him. >> he referring to "saturday night live." he said he'd never do it. of course he would do it. being on "saturday night live" is special. every president that you can think of and many of the candidates have done it. but latino groups are outside protesting nbc and snl because you are hosting this weekend. >> are you surprised snl is ask you you to "the apprentice" they renewed. i decided i wanted to run for
7:17 am
president and make the country great again. but they renewed the apprentice but i decided i just couldn't do it. miss universe there was a problem, to be honest. i ended up buying tr interest and there's no problem whatsoever with nbc. the reason they put me there, it's called ratings. >> if you were critical as reet rely my question to you is does that invite scrutiny of your own business record? you've talked about using the bankruptcy laws strategically in the past but here's the bottom line. if a company is doing well, is healthy, is robust financially,
7:18 am
why do you even need to use bankruptcy laws? >> i'm no different than many of of the people you have s-- you have the list of people that have used those. frankly i've made a lot of money using those laws and i've also bought a lot of things out of bankruptcies and ind up buying tremendous pieces of land. i've use the bankruptcy laws, which are the laws of the land corporately, as have i could name the biggest names in business and they've almost all used them. i've had no backlash on the rest
7:19 am
of that and everybody knows that. i made my dwieling i'll be honest, savannah, you and matt have been covering me for a long time. i've been a public book. >> we have indeed. thank you for your time. >> thank you very much, savannah. >> former president george h.w. bush comments on cheney. erved the president badly. i don't like what he did and i think it hurt the president having his iron blank view of everything. bush goes on to say rumsfeld was an arrogant fellow, self-assured

7:43 am
similar to a low-powered microwave oven. >> it's over minutes over years that we believe can cause a great problem for children and the rest of us, as well. >> reporter: cell phone providers say they follow all guidelines put in place by the fcc. they work with labs like this one then to test your device. the current fcc safety standard was developed nearly 20 years ago. the test in california starts by taping a phone to the ear of a plastic head. the size of a 200 pound man, it's filled with liquid. the fluids used in these tests best replicate the same properties inside the human head. scientists are able to determine how much radiation penetrates the head when you're talking on the phone. the robotic arm moves to various hot spots on the head to test the specific absorption rate. the phone we tested was within the fcc allowed radiation limit, but critics say these standards
7:44 am
are outdated. they urge the federal agency to adopt stricter radiation guidelines. current fcc standards do not account for the unique vulnerability and use pattern specific to pregnant women and children, warnings the american academy of pediatrics in a letter to the fcc. >> children are not little adults. the skull is thinner. also, the volume of the brain is less, compared to a 200 plus size man. >> reporter: the u.s. government accountability office asked the fcc to reassess the exposure limit. in particular, the radiation limit when you have your cell phone close to your body, like in your pocket or when you hold it directly next to your head. or as some teens do, sleep with it on their pillow. >> phones are transmitting radiation so long as they're committed to the internet and connected to the wi-fi. even if you're not talking on your phone, your phone is talking to the tower. >> reporter: critics of the
7:45 am
fcc's current guidelines give this simple advice to all consumer. use the speakerphone or an ear piece, and remember, distance is your friend. keeping a phone even a few inches off your body reduces exposure several thousand times. for "today," miguel, nbc news, california. >> health agencies from other countries recommend limiting a child's exposure to cell phone radiation. the fcc says, quote, the u.s. has among the most conservative standards in the world. as part of our routine review of the standards, we're soliciting input from experts, including federal health agencies and others to guide our assessment. >> makes you think twice as a parent, especially when kids are on the cell phone a lot.

7:53 am
i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

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.
8:38 am
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.
8:39 am
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.
