military base outside of seattle. with himing matthew todd miller who arrived in the weight arms of his parents after 12 months. it was a dramatic and emotional ending after the spy story. the secret mission was headed by america's top spy james clapper after a series of back channel negotiations that included china. >> there are ways in which they can communicate with us largely through the mission with u.n. and new york. this was the final step in a well choreographed ballet. >> he carried a message from president obama. north korea wasn't offered anything in return. >> i think it's a wonderful day for the men, their families. obviously we're grateful for their safe return. >> miller allegedly ripped up his visa. bae had been hospitalized after
working in a labor camp. >> it's been amazing two years. i learn a lot, grew a lot. lost a lot of weight. i'm standing strong because of you. >> standing by his side, his sister who had worked tirelessly to see this day. >> we're finally here. my brother is home. all of our hopes and prayer for this moment have finally come true. >> reporter: that joyous reunion notwithstanding. the u.s. officials say release does not concern north korea's nuclear program. while there, clapper did not meet with the unpredictable leader kim jong-un . >> thanks. jeffrey fowl was released last month after being held six months. good to have you with us. thanks for being here. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> when you were released, at the time you expressed mixed
emotions that kenneth bae and matthew miller were staying behind. when you heard the news of their release, how did you feel? >> i was elated. very happy they're coming home. >> that news of the release came quickly. i understand when you were told you were being released, that came quickly. you were a waiting trial at the time. when did you believe it was real that you were going on? >> like i said, in previous interviews, it took me by surprise. i thought i was going to indictment or arraignment or maybe a trial itself. it wasn't until i was at the conference table a north korean official told me i was being released. then two americans came up and said you're d.o.d. you're coming home. half hour later, i was air born and coming home. >> it's just incredible to think
about. you were kept separate from kenneth bae and matthew miller. i understand you're realizing you may have been in close proximity to one another not that long ago. can you tell us about that? >> right. i had no contact with them at all there. information in general was hard to come by like an information vacuum for the most part. just yesterday i realized that during interviews on september 1st i think it was that three of us may have been in the same building together. i had no indication at the time. >> were they ever mentioned to you? i'm sorry -- >> go ahead. >> were they ever mentioned to you by any of north koreans or did you ask about them? >> i did. i had known of kenneth's story before i came there. he had been sentenced a 15 years before i left.
while i was on a trip, the tour portion of my trip, i heard them talking about another gentleman being detained. they didn't know his name. they knew he lifted his visa. i didn't realize he had been sent to prison so quickly. he was already in prison while i was there. >> i'm sure the three of you at some point will speak and have interesting insight into time you intent there. appreciate you joining us. thank you. >> i'm available. thank you. let's turn to the big blast of cold weather headed our way. it's not winter yet. it's going to feel like it across most of the country. >> dylan is on top of it packing her warm weather gear to held off. >> yes, i'm packed.
it's going to be cold and sfr h stretch across most states. 30 plus states will see this. the polar vortex is always in the north pole. every once in a while a piece cuts off from the low and digs down into the united states. that's responsible for this cold air. coldest so far this season easily. look at some of our temperatures by 7:00 a.m. wednesday morning. temperature of 10 degrees. 1 degrees in billings, chicago 25. it comes with a little snow. not a lot going on now. over the course of 48 hours we're going to see snow take hold south of far go including minneapolis and wisconsin before it changes to a wintery mix. we could see a foot of snow in minneapolis and more than a foot if you head further north. not only dealing with cold but snow. winter sure feels like it's here lester. >> thanks very much. president obama certainly
felt a big chill in the past week with republicans making big election gains and said to control both houses of congress. chuck todd is moderator of "meet the press." good to see you. >> good morning lester. >> the republican leadership has done a good job of articulating what their vision is going forward was they take the party. are they united? >> we'll find out on the issue of health care lester. i think the leadership doesn't want to lead with sort of antagonizing the president on health care. they don't want endless votes on repeal that get vetoed. will pit be enough for that conservative base that feel they're there not to work with the president but stop him on all sorts of things? i think health care, how they go about trying to aft ing ting toe
on it without poisoning the well with the president, that's their case with the leadership. the last thing they want to talk about is health care. they're going to have to to appease the base. >> this term poisoning the well is on both sides. the president is concerned republicans will poisen the well by making executive changes on immigration policy is. how much of an appetite does the white house have to go forward on its own? >> this is another thing. he's in the same position as republican leadership on health care, on immigration. he made a promise to base, latinos, important part of the democratic coalition. lester, you can make a strong argument the president's decision to delay action on immigration, demoralize latino turnout in two states that mattered to democrats, florida and colorado. the idea of delaying was supposed to help red state
democrats. none of them came close in places. i think he's got to act for good of his own party. what does he do? is it enough to antagonize the right? that's the key question. >> you'll explore it on "meet the press". thanks very much. good to see you. a check on other stories we're following this busy sunday morning. >> thank you erica. we begin in iraq with u.s. defense officials cannot confirm whether a top isis commander was among those hit in an air strike friday. despite the air strikes, militants continue to launch attacks on iraqi security forces and civilians. saturday, 43 were killed after a series of bombings in and around baghdad. the nurse at the ecenter of the ebola quarantine issue is on the move. her boyfriend says they will leave town. meantime in texas yesterday, ebola survivor nina pham was
