a big slosh, and then a wash of air, and just what the hell is that? leg wounds, broken femur. they were still inside trying to get out, but a stampede corrupted. >> all the suden there was a big bang, and everyone decided to run in, people were screaming and crying, and we tried to look for the stairs and exit. the artist, ariana grande was not hurt, but in a tweet she said she's, quote, broken from the bottom of my hurt. i'm so, so sorry. i don't have words. shock among the concert goers too this morning. many who spent the night at hoe hotels or apartments offered by los
7:05 am
>> reporter: these girls haven't changed sill carrying the bunny ea ears from the concert many of the people wore at the concert. >> a loud bang. >> it was silence, and then we started running. >> reporter: was it like a stampede? people were falling? >> we jumped on people below us. >> reporter: you jumped off the balcon balcony? >> co- to a lower level. >> reporter: a lone male suicide attacker detonated an improvised bomb. >> a lot of children with parents. >> reporter: they've been in contact with their families, but charlotte campbell is still awaiting word about her 15-year-old daughter. >> i'm heart broken at the moment because i don't know where she is. i don't know if she's alive even yet. >> reporter: the website accounts we've been hearing paint a
7:06 am
tumbling down staircases as they tried to escape. of children screaming i lost my mommy. there are reports according to that british security services believe they have identified that suicide bomber. they are not, however, releasing his identity as the investigation is ongoing. they're trying to determine whether he had help. >> all right. richard outside the manchester arena. thank you. >> as you saw the bombing set off immediate chaos inside the crowded arena and outside. zach was there with some friends and managed to get out uninjured. zach, good morning to you. >> hi. >> i was reading you and some friends were considering leaving that concert before the encore song, and instead someone convinced you to stay which put you inside the arena when that happened. is that right? >> yeah. well, we were there, obviously.
7:07 am
song. some people were trying to leave. we were the ones that stopped them and said wait, she's going to do another song. it was scary, because if we hadn't told them that, they would have left and things would have take an turn for the worst. we were planning on leaving. a lot of people were leaving early because they didn't know if there was an encore or not. and it happened straight after her final song. >> and then what did you hear? what did you see? >> it must have been ten seconds after the lights came up. it was a huge bang. it sounded like a gunshot, but at that moment, you don't expect anything of it. i thought maybe a secret bus or maybe she dropped a mike backstage. we were making a joke. it wasn't until moments after when everyone started screaming, we were in the upper tier so we could see the whole
7:08 am
saw everyone running toward the exit where we were. that was when we got out into the arena lobby. that's when we saw everyone running and screaming and crying. it was horrific. >> did you get anywhere near, do you think, where the bomb was detonated? >> i'm pretty sure the bomb was detonated on the bottom floor, but obviously toward the back. because it wasn't detonated inside where we were. it was actually in the lobby or outside where all the t shirt stands are, but i know a friend that was out there at the same time, and she said that when she heard it go off, she felt a vibration, and we were obviously on the upper tier to see didn't. she said she heard it so clearly and loudly. and that was where everyone scattered soobs it happened. >> zach, did you see the injured? as we understand it, there was the explosion but also chaos and a stampede after. >> yeah. it was crazy. we got out
7:09 am
there was people with bandages. there was blood everywhere. we didn't know what had happened. we heard the word bomb and explosion a few times. that was when everyone was packing, but still, we didn't understand until we got out and we saw people all down the streets with blankets and people screaming, little kids crying. we still had no idea what had happened. only there was a loud bang and we didn't know what it was. >> zach, you're a young guy. you've been living in the uk under a heightened state of alarm or security. does this now change things for you? does this change the way you view your surroundings? does it change the way you're going to go about living your life? >> i think it will change the way for everyone there last night. you don't expect it. there was security in the way in. everyone's bags were checked. my friend had a bag checked. but on the w t
7:10 am
know there's thousands of people meeting their friends and kids and boyfriends or girlfriends to meet them to go home, but there's no security on the way home. so the terrorist could have easily gone in toward the end of the concert and that would have been when it happened. it's changed my plans in life. but you never know. >> zach, thank you for taking the time to talk to us today. we're happy you're okay. thank you. >> thank you. well, the president is condemning this attack. he is in israel this morning. he called whoever was behind it, quote, evil losers. kristen welker is in jerusalem with that part of the story for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. president trump spoke with the british prime minister theresa may earlier today and offered condolences and support in the wake of that attack. he started his day meeting with the leader of the palestinian authority. that meeting aimed at restarting peace talks. i
7:11 am
terror. the horror that unfolded in manchester front and center as president trump met with the president of the palestinian authority in bethlehem today offering prayers and condolences. >> we stand in solidarity with the people of the united kingdom. so many young, people, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. >> reporter: the president condemning the attackers in his strongest terms. >> i won't call them monsters. because they would like that term. they would think that's a great name. i will call them from now on, losers because that's what they are. they're losers. and we'll have more of them. but they're
7:12 am
just remember that. >> reporter: mr. trump tieing the attack of the major theme of his trip and presidency, uniting the civil riized world to comba terrorists. >> the terrorists and extremists and those who give them aide and comfort must be driven out from our society forever. >> reporter: as he aimed to restart peace talks between israelis and palestinians, mr. trump insisting true peace starts in the middle east. >> i also firmly believe that if israels and the palestinians can make peace, it will begin a process of peace all throughout the middle east. and that would be an amazing accomplishment. >> reporter: the president also solemn as we visited jerusalem today at the world holocaust museum. his daughter ivanka tweeting about the attack writing we stand united with our friends in the uk and our hearts and
7:13 am
this atrocious incident. >> kristen welker traveling with the president. thank you. how is the attack going to impact security at home. pete williams is with us. pete, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. in the u.s. the department of homeland security is so far not urging police to take any specific action, because there are no known threats here at home. nonetheless, police in new york as they often do, strictly as a precaution sent extra teams to yankee stadium where a baseball was underway as word of the manchester attack began to spread. extra police in times square and at train stations. today say they'll be doing random bag checks at subway and train stations. the governor of new york has directed more security patrols at airports, bridges and tunnels as well. and police in boston say they'll step up their presence at concert venues in that .
7:14 am
evidence of any threats involving concert venues or other public gathering places in the u.s., but they say many cities may choose to deploy extra security at public places and events. but as we so often do after these attacks, police and homeland security are stressing the importance of public vigilance. if you see something, say something. all right. pete, thank you. let's turn to michael, national security analyst who is the former director of the u.s. national counterterrorism center. these are the early hours of the investigation. the fact that it appears to be an explosive\. that alone suggests a level of sf sophistication and i presume raises the possibility there was help here. >> i think that's right. we don't know exactly how powerful the explosive was, but the death of 22, so many injured. it was close based. that increases the effects. this suggests someone with an
7:15 am
to go to syria to get that understandin understanding you can get it on the internet. >> i think what strikes so many people is the simplicity. this suicide bomber did not challenge security at a venue. that's what we always think about it. how tough is it to get into one of the arenas. this person didn't bother with that. he stood outside a perimeter near a hub of transportation and just waited for the people to pour out of the building. >> and as people were exiting. there they were. and this is a trend that we've seen more and more. we saw it in the airport attack in turkey. we saw it in the airport attack in brussels. they go outside the perimeter where you have a crowd and that's where the target is softest. >> we've heard there's been one arrest. what are investigators doing now? >> they've identified the individual from elements at the scene. from there you go out of the circles. every single person he
7:16 am
where the money was. where the phone calls were. right now make sure no one else is out there plotting. from there, it's understanding how this occurred. but i think this will look a lot like a lot of what we've seen on isis in the past. radicalization via the internet. move wherever you are, and you end up with this tragedy. >> we talked to an eyewitness who said it might change the way he views his life and security. the british say stay calm and carry on. does this change things in great britain which has been the target of so many attacks over the last 15 years. >> for the people there and saw this, it will change their perspective, but i think for the battle and british people, it won't change that much. that's something the british understands in their fights against the ira and al qaeda and now isis. ultimately
7:17 am
going about their lives as they did on 7/ 7 and other attacks. >> michael, thank you for being here. >> let us check the weather from al. all right. thank you. a lot of heavy rain down through the southeast. moving into the mid atlantic states. you can see right now we've got some pretty strong storms going on. new orleans up to raleigh. that's where we have 26 million folks at risk for flash flooding. low pressure moves up the coast and to the mid atlantic. downpours will continue to tomorrow as a second front sweeps into florida bringing much needed rain to the areas. we have a flood threat. the ground saturated one to two inches of rain but upwards of four inches as you get into alabama on into georgia and parts of south carolina. we'll get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds.
7:18 am
it's cloudy and dry in washington. there are rain chances just down to our south. it will be sneaking up toward southern maryland. there's a chance for showers inside the d.c. area but probably not until later on in the day today. future weather tries to bring the chance for showers up after 4:00 but i think steadier rain is after 8:00 p.m. this evening. a 60% of showers today. cloudy tomorrow. another 80% chance for rain on thursday. that's yo
7:19 am
coming up, much more on the investigation into this tragic terror attack at a crowded ariana grande kans effoconcert new information on an arrest made overnight. >> first, this is "today" on nbc. for so many things. it's got this creamy sort of light, fluffy texture. a little bit of acidity. a little bite to it. it makes a tomato taste more like a tomato. it makes bacon taste more like bacon. it makes everything that it's with better. it tastes like real ingredients because it's made with real ingredients. i would never use any other mayonnaise in my cooking. if you really care about putting out a quality dish, there's no reason to not give duke's a shot. i think you'll be convinced.

7:21 am
just ahead, the growing number of arenas, concert halls and other public places being directly targeted by terrorists. can anything be done to make them safer? >> first a look at your local news and weather. hey katy, i'm going to go ahead and invade your personal space to run some things by you. it's going to look like i'm listening but i'm actually just paying attention to nugget. cool. i'll pretend you're answering the questions i have. i'll scroll through my feed and avoid making eye contact. i'm just going to keep hovering. wouldn't it be great if everyone said what they meant? hovering away. boo boo boo [making noise at nugget] the citi® double cash card does. it lets you earn double cash back with 1% when you buy,

7:31 am
palestinians and the israelis could start peace in the middle east. mr. trump spoke in bethlehem. he met with israeli leaders on monday. the president says he's hopeful americans can help israel and the palestinians work out their long-standing differences. >> jury selection in pittsburgh in bill cosby's sexual assault case. the 79-year-old comedian will stand trial on june 5th on charges he drugged and molested women at his home back in 2004. and hockey history was made last night. the national predators defeated the ducks to advance to the stanley cup finals for the first time. they're going to either face pittsburgh the penguins or the senators. you can see game six of that series tonight on nbc sports network, and those games have been fun. the people who have sung the anthems are top drawer. >> no question.
7:32 am
tragic terror attack in manchester, england. kerry is there. >> reporter: british officials say the first priority is to make sure there is not another attack. this is the latest attack in europe. they have to establish what they think they know about the bomber and whether that person has any connection to others who may still be on the loose. europe is reeling from another terror attack. the deadliest in more than a decade. some concert goers telling us this morning they saw little security. >> they never checked personals. there should have been some kind of security in place. >> reporter: an urgent question, was this bombing carried out with the help of others. like the airport attack in 2016 where more than 30 were killed by isis-
7:33 am
or paris in 2015 where there was a rampage using suicide vests. that time 130 died. then too many were attending a concert at a small venue. or was this an attacker acting alone like in nice under a year ago. there the weapon, not a bomb, but a truck driven at hoi speed leaving 86 dead. the driver apparently inspired on the internet. two months ago in london's westminster, another vehicle attack led to arrests across the uk including in manchester. this morning, british intelligence is working to establish who is behind this latest atros thety. >> the police and security services believe they know the identity of the perpetrator, but at this stage of their investigation, we cannot confirm his name. >> reporter: uk security forces have been on high alert making 260 terrorism-related
7:34 am
last year. thwarting 13 potential attacks in just four years, british officials say. but it is impossible to keep every place secure and last night was proof of that. this morning europe is grieving again. >> and british officials say they believe there will be security footage. meanwhile, they think this was planned, that it was deliberate, and what is chilling about that would have known the person who did it would have seen children there and would have seen them before they detonated the explosives. >> thank you very much. richard clark was chief counterterrorism adviser to bill clinton and warned the bush administration of the al qaeda threat in the months leading up to 9/11. he's the co-author of a new book called "warnings". good to have you here. >> good to be here. >> this is a target that someone looking at it knows it's young
7:35 am
people, little girls, western culture, music, a concert, and that can be no accident. >> no. as it was pointed out, the british have arrested over 200 people in the last year. they've broken up plots. there might have been five or six of these last year if the british police and intelligence service hadn't been better, but you can't stop them all, no matter how good you are. one will get through. >> the british intelligence service and intelligence services throughout other parts of the world have become good at identifying people who have become radicalized. and then they keep those people under surveillance to the best of their ability. the problem is how do they know when they've become activated? >> that's one problem, and the other problem is there are tens of thousands. in england they're looking at 14,000 radicalized people. and then you're right. there's that moment when the radicalized person flips to being an activated person who is willing to kill themselves. you can't tell when that happens. >> do you think when
7:36 am
the british intelligence will have known about. >> he will have been on their monitoring list. you can't monitor people every moment of the day in these numbers. we have to get to the root of the problem. we can't just try to stop these attacks through intelligence purposes and police purposes. we have to get at the root. there's an ideology here that says it's okay to kill children. we have to get at that ideology. and convince people that it's wrong. there is no religious justification for this in any religion, and the only way we're going to stop this so we don't keep doing it year after year is to get religious leaders and others to speak out and say this is not islam, and to get at the root causes from the socio-economic reasons too. >> obviously we've seen a lot of these kinds of attacks in western europe recently. but the u.s. is certainly not immune, and i think every parent th
7:37 am
to a concert? this could happen here. do you think the u.s. is in any better of a position from a security standpoint because of the differences between the muslim communities here versus the muslim communities overseas? >> that's the one thing we have going for ourselves that makes the u.s. different than britain. they have a good police security service and so do we, but we've embraced our muslim americans. that's why the talk against muslims in the last year in the campaign and since has been counterproductive. the only way to solve this problem is to have everyone think they're on the same side. >> good to have your perspective. thank you so much. >> we want to mention also lester is making his way to manchester. we'll have coverage tonight on nbc nightly news. let us take a turn and get a check on the weather from al. we've been seeing a lot of drought in florida. that's going to change in the next 48 ho

florida into the southeast. 18 million folks at risk. downpours, hail, and isolated tornadoes. here's what's going on in the atmosphere. juiced up. a lot of humid air. as this slow-moving front pushing east, we'll see localized flooding. some drought relieve and we'll look at strong storms and isolated tornadoes. heavy rain from northern florida to central florida. 1 to 2 inches but amounts of 3 to 4 inches over the next 48 hours. that's what's going on around the country. here's what's happening in our neck of the woods. >> temperatures cool this morning. we have cloudy skies in place. still 63 degrees right now. there is rain, but not locally. we're dealing with the cloud cover. the rain is down to the south. that will be moving in later this afternoon and late this evening. here's what future weather shows mainly closer to the evening commute and late tonight. the rain will be moving in. steadier overnight tonight. some early tomorrow. tomorrow looks like a mainly cloudy

7:44 am
deterrent for a determined suicide bomber who wants to kill as people are going in or coming out. by its very definition, terrorism is about striking fear in the heart of the public. and there is no better place than so-called soft targets. the arena in manchester, the airport departure and arrival halls. restaurants and concert halls in paris. a christmas market in berlin. a boardwalk in nice. the nightclub in orlando. an office christmas party in san bernardino. and the list goes on and on. >> it's impossible to secure all places at all times at 10 0% security. what you can try to do is to gather as much intelligence and information as possible about those planning today attacks. >> reporter: in 2017 security has become pervasive wherever we go. train stations, sporting events, even shopping malls.
7:45 am
extra units from times square to penn station to yankee's stadium where the yankee's played the royals. >> a lot of presence and security but everybody was safe. >> soft targets are one of the hardest things to defend against. there aren't any layers of security for a soft target. it's a public area. >> reporter: the key is for the public to remain vigilant. be suspicious of someone who makes threats or acts ir ratically. seems to be gathering information on anything from shift changes to security procedures. or seems to test security with false alarms. 16 years after 9/11, terrorism officers say the see something say something directive is still just as urgent as ever, and often the best way to stop an attack. >> the balance of security and privacy is a difficult one. terrorists only have to succeed once. and security officials

not only worry about all potential suspects but worry about hardening targets in an open society. >> reporter: this morning federal authorities are reiterating they know of no imminent threat to the u.s. that said, major police departments are stepping up their patrols including the nypd and boston and l.a. pd. the best intelligence very often comes from just everyday citizens who see something that doesn't look right and say something. back to you. >> tom, thank you. as tom ran down the list of the soft target attacks over the last four years, it takes your breath away. >> it does. if you have a gut feeling and see something, it's bet tore call. >> coming up, we'll shift topics and ask the question could o.j. be a free man again. there's a new parol hearing being granted.

in terms of avoiding security snmplt. >> that's right. we see them searching bags and trying to show a perception of safety. what we may see here is a change in the tactics of the terrorist groups where they're outside the venue knowing that at the conclusion of the concert, people are going to be coming out. that becomes the soft target. we're not going to be able to create a hardened perimeter around everything. i'd also add that the target, they knew that this was an ariana grande concert. the people that go to these concerts are young adults, children and families as we just saw. it's a changing tactic as well. they've targeted young children. >> they're targeting little girls if you're going to an ariana grande concert. let's talk about the bomb here. potentially it provides important clues for investigators. we see the claim of isis, that this was a member.
8:11 am
veracity there is in such a claim? >> absolutely. there's an entire program with the u.s. military and law enforcement intelligence agencies both here and in london looking at the signatures. when i talk about signatures, i'm talking about the triggering device, the actual explosives used. the packaging in which the bomb was concealed. looking at all those things, many data points, they're often able to identify who the bomb maker was and especially back to a particular group. >> we had an earlier guest who said once we learn the name of the bomber, that person will likely have been known to authorities. the question is why didn't they go get him earlier? >> there's a great challenge to law enforcement in the intelligence community. there are a lot of people who have made statements, particularly in the u.s. you have a first amendment right to say certain things. you might go up to the line. if you don't cross it, law enforcement can't take action. it's similar in the uk. they're on the r.
8:12 am
frankly, they're overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources to cover everybody they'd like to. they have to prioritize. >> as we cover the tragedy and the human toll of this, a terror group that might be behind this sees this as a victory. they see this as a tool to get other people to come and join them. >> that's right. this is a marketing ploy by them. not only do they want to incite terror and create havoc. they are looking to recruit new members. they're looking to raise money. they're looking to raise their level on the global stage. and by creating an incident like this, they do that. >> and something worth remembering. this is potentially a sophisticated attack in that somebody was apparently able to set off an ied. even when it's just a person with a knife or truck or a car, isis, al qaeda, whomever is responsible, they still see that as a propaganda victory. >> of course. they have

8:17 am
adviser michael flynn misled the pentagon about his ties to russia. also today another example of president trump pushing the boundaries of accepted behavior for a president whose campaign aides remain under federal investigation. with the russia investigation intensifying, a former senior intelligence official tells nbc news in march president trump asked the head of the national security agency and the director of national intelligence to publicly push back on suggestions mr. trump's campaign colluded with russia. the story first reported by the washington post. the two spy chiefs mike rogers and dan coats turning the president down. both concerned enough to compare notes with their conversation with the president. rogers writing a memo about it. a former official says neither director believed he was being asked to do something illegal. it comes as ousted national security adviserch

is facing scrutiny. the top democrat on a house investigating committee says flynn lied to those who interviewed him when he applied to have his security renewed. according to documents, flynn said he was paid by u.s. companies when he attended this 2015 gala with vladimir putin. even though couplings says flynn was paid $45,000 by the russians. also this morning flynn's lawyer says his client will refuse to turn over records subpoenaed by congress of his conversations with russian officials between june and inauguration day. given the russia investigations, his lawyers say flynn has more than a reasonable apprehension that anything he turns over or says could be used against him. two other former trump associates, have complied with subpoenas for documents. and the head of the trump administration's budget rollout bipartisan criticism. the proposal calling f

it is tuesday morning, may 23r it is tuesday morning may 23rd, 2017. as you've probably already heard, we have heavy hearts after last night easter if iing deadly attack at a concert in manchester england. teens, parents, all attending an ariana grande concert. officials say a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device. we want to go to manchester right now. >> reporter: it's devastating to be talked to you from here on a morning like this. to fill folks in on the latest this morning, a 23-year-old has been arrested here in
9:01 am
manchester. meanwhile isis has claimed responsibility for the attack. we don't know on what grounds with what credibility isis says it was involved in this attack. but the death total now at 22 people including we are hearing and this is the kind of thing, al, that makes you draw a breath. one of the victims an eight-year-old girl. many of these victims were teenagers. we are hearing stories of parents pulling their children from the venue behind me here. stories of parents rushing here to try to rescue their kids and stories of parents who couldn't find their kids. there is one story, and we don't know if it's true or not, al, of an adult looking after 50 children, apparently. taking them away and trying to reunite them with their families. among this terrible, terrible act here, and it does appear as if
9:02 am
suicide bomber would have known who they were targeting, there are these stories of goodness of the community coming together, and that's what people are trying to focus on. >> it is just really unfathomable, and i know you've got kids, we all have kids here. and we're hearing that there's been -- that the authorities there may actually know the name of the suicide bomber? is that the case now? but they haven't released it yet? >> yeah. that's right. the prime minister here is saying that she does -- her authorities do know the name or they believe they know who was involved. they won't be releasing the name, because they'll be trying to establish it. one authority said their priority is make sure there isn't another attack. because this is the latest in a series of attacks in europe. so they will be trying to establish who this person is connected to. track down all the links to make sure there isn't somebody else who
9:03 am
loose. >> we know if anything breaks, you'll keep us up to date. >> on my way to work this morning, i saw the new york post. and this is what grabbed my attention. when they said and you mentioned it too, killing our kids. is one of those things where all the other attacks, they're certainly just as horrific, but i think for some reason this went for the jugular. they are our kids. you think about a kid's fist concert, or parents dropping their kids off. and pop culture, ariana grande, that could happen here. i think it juggled the conscious a little bit. >> so many of the other acts of terror it seems random, they're not targeting a specific group. >> and this was children. >> children and teenage girls. >> i like the way the british prime minister addressed it. let's look.
9:04 am
its appalling j sickening, coward esz, deliberating targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives. as so often while we experience the worst of humanity in manchester, we also saw the best. the coward esz of the attacker met the bravery of the emergency services and the people of manchester. the attempt to divide us met countless acts of kindness that brought people closer together. and in the days ahead, those must be the things we remember. >> i think she's right. >> did you know -- go ahead. >> i stopped in my tracks when i was listening to her talk. you can hear the anger in her voice, but there was still still comforting about listening to her talk, and we need that right now. you need that sense of comfort from someone in charge. >> and there's
9:05 am
especially for the folks in the uk, and especially in britain. they from world war ii and even before that, have always dealt with these kind of tragedies. and that british resolve to carry on continues. >> and there's this fine line. we're in the media so we know this. there's a fine line. you don't want to give any more attention to whoever did this or to the bad guys. you don't want to give them any more attention than need be. there's also a curiosity to know who is responsible, and then you want to glorify the heros, the people who helped. there's an interesting dance that we have to play with getting out the information but not playing this video over and over of the horror of it. >> right. president trump addressed the attack. he was on the strip in israel. here's what he had to say. >> so many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil
9:06 am
i won't call them monsters. because they would like that term. they would think that's a great name. i will call them from now on, losers, because that's what they are. they're losers. and we'll have more of them. but they're losers. just remember that. >> a difficult time. and you have to imagine what ariana grande -- >> i know. i feel so bad. first of all, she tweeted last night. broken, period, from bottom of my heart. i'm so so sorry. i don't have words. she had nothing to do with it. but sorry because she's heart broken, and then i thought can we start saying concert, but you don't want her name to be tied to something so horrible. it's one of those
9:07 am
we all worry about the next concert. we shouldn't have to. there's a big billy joel concert in new york city. this morning they talked about you see a huge police presence in new york city. we take the train every day. it rattles you. >> and concerts are fun. they're memories. everybody remembers their first conce concert. this was most likely a lot of kids' first concert. it's disgusting and sad. >> i've taken my daughters to concerts, and in the back of my mind, i'm always worried about these things. whether it's that or predators. which is why i always go to the concerts with them. it doesn't protect them still. >> but you feel like you're there. >> something like this, you can be the most protective parent in the world, and there's nothing you can do to save your child. >> we'll talk about
9:08 am
metal detecters, but now they're attacking outside of security. >> that was a choke point. you go from the concert to the subway. and so it's dangerous. we're going to talk coming up in the next block about how you and your family can stay safe at concerts, stadiums, and airports. one of the best security experts in the country weighs in on what you need to know to protect yourself in what folks call soft targets after these messages.

9:12 am
shawn, good morning. >> good morning. >> we don't want to frighten people, but i think forewarned is forearmed. and going forward with our lives, we can't hide. but we have to go out, and when we hear about soft targets, explain what those are technically. >> when we talk about soft targets, you're talking about spaces where there's large gatherings of people that are readily accessly. a government facility, a place like the airport, are hard targets. but the soft targets, concerts, carnivals, people gathering for a sporting event at a local school, for example. we see terrorists targeting those spaces, because there's a greater opportunity for them to get away with it. they're not going to be stopped as they enter the venue, and there's an opportunity for them to create havoc.
9:13 am
carnage, destruction. they want to create confusion and fear in the lives of everyday citizens and targeting those soft targets allows then to do that. >> what is the best advice? we can't say don't stay inside. people want to go to concerts and games. we want to live our lives. what can you tell us? >> being aware is the most important thing. be aware. be alert. be on the lookout. the best from a law enforcement or intelligence community perspective. private citizens have thwarted attacks because they see something. they see an abandoned vehicle or somebody running away from it, something that looks unusual, alerting law enforcement is helpful. when you go to things like movie theaters or another venue, know where the exits are. if you see somebody come in that looks unusual, it's going to walk away, maybe talk to a security officer. it's that type of event that that's going to help. >> identify five month old. i'm thinking this summer going
9:14 am
how much do i need to feel secure that there's protection and how much do i need to keep my eyes looking around? >> there are thousands of these events going on on any even day. we have to live our lives. we can rely on the men and women on law enforcement in the and the intelligence agencies. there are thousands of americans working every single day, globally to protect us. we've got to rely on them. that being said, we have a responsibility to be alert and to understand that this threat is not going away. we have to make sure we're in the game. our mind is totally aware. >> shawn, we were talking earlier before we came on. why does it seem that europe seems to have the majority of these, as opposed to a vast country like we are, they don't seem to be happening at least right now here as opposed to over there. >> one of the things we've seen is the so-called foreign fighters that have been able
9:15 am
go out to iraq, syria, they get trained and come back. they've been able to come back to europe. there's been a bit more of a free flow between europe and the middle east. in the united states there's been somewhat of a separation of that. the fbi is constantly engaged with our intelligence agency partners to identify those people who have traveled internationally and come back. so there is some issue geo political issues that have helped to do that in europe. >> we have to be vigilant. what about a security standpoint. is there a new game plan for things like a concert? >> i think the best way to thwart the attacks is new intelligence. being able to detect them and to disrupt them. when we have mepeople who are le wolves, they're much more difficult to detect. using intelligence to identify these attacks is going to help law enforcement. >> will there be a case for big events, c
9:16 am
where there will be security? >> we'll see more hardened targets, increased perimeter security. all that does really is to push the softness outside which is what we saw people exiting and being targeted as they exited the venue. >> so i was watching this with my kids last night. what do you tell your children? because we can't keep them in a bubble. they go out and go to sporting events. what do we say to our kids? >> i think the it's an awareness piece. we can't hide this. this is reality. this is the normal now. they have to be aware that there are evil people trying to harm innocent civilians. talk to them about this alertness. have them identify where the exits are. talk to them about not running toward a disturbance but to get away and to develop a safe space for them. >> curiosity is not their friend. >> that's right. tom, thank you so much. >> when you ride the subway, see

i want recourse. business owners care about reputation. they're willing to help you. >> next one. renting a car. i will say they always say do you want the insurance? i always think it's probably on my credit card. i always say no. >> often that is right. because if you have car insurance, if you have health insurance, if you have homeowner's insurance, it might cover you if you're in an accident or lose your stuff, but there are times where you may not have car insurance because you may not have a car or you may want supplemental coverage for liability. before you get to the counter, check it out. see what your insurance covers. see what your credit card covers. it may be secondary liability. >> i've never checked. >> i care more sometimes about what i'm wearing on the trip than my car. i think i should flip that. >> lost luggage. nobody wants to check, but what happens when it happens?
