tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  November 24, 2015 4:00pm-5:01pm PST

4:00 pm
and it's clear why he was charged. >> that's why they charged that police officer with first degree murder today. much more on this, on all date's breaking news, erin burnett "out front" starts right now. breaking news, we are monitoring that video of a police shooting a black teen 16 times out of chicago. also breaking news, islam infiltrating france's main airport charles de gaulle. the massive manhunt continues in europe. >> exclusive video of a russian plane shot down by turkey. let's go "out front." good evening, i'm erin burnett. breaking news. radicalized employees may have infiltrated one of the busiest airports. investigators are monitoring a number of islamic radicals who may be working at the charles de
4:01 pm
gaulle airport in paris. this disturbing detail coming as the manhunt for the suspected paris attacker stretches to germany. authorities now going door-to-door searching for salah abdeslam. he's been on the run 11 days. we are also learning tonight on the night of the attack, the so-called master mind abdelhamid abaaoud returned to the crime scenes. >> worried about radicalized workers at charles de gaulle airport. >> reporter: that's right. it's not just the airports they are worried about. they are looking at all public transport, the railway system, the buses. one of the bomb eers was a bus driver until late 2012. we are learning right around that time, ground and air transportation unions started to make compliance they believed some of their employees were
4:02 pm
becoming radicalized. they cited examples of male employees refusing to greet female passengers, some of them even praying inside the buses. we know now in the last week french police launched a series of searches on france's main airports here in paris and charles de gaulle. we know those searches focused on three main companies, air france cargo, serve air and fedex. all those companies have access to the tarmac, to aircraft, and they have said none of their employees have been terminated as a result of this investigation, but this is still very much an ongoing investigation. >> certainly one with a great cause of concern. air france, serve cargo and fedex. a clue that may lead authorities to the air france fugitives. identifying one salah abdeslam
4:03 pm
accomplices. >> reporter: authorities launching a new manhunt for a second suspect connected to the paris friday 13th attacks. muhammed abrimi drove a suicide bomber at the paris stadium. he is captured on this security camera at a french gas station two days before the terrorist strike. he is pictured with salah abdeslam. the search for abdeslam expanded into northwestern germany today. for a tip from french investigators. once again, police came up empty. in france came new and frightening revelations. according to the paris prosecutor, the suspected ring leader abaaoud was on the verge of carrying out a second deadly assault in a fangs area.
4:04 pm
>> translator: the man found with him in the apartment were planning an attack which consisted of blowing themselves up on wednesday november 18th or on thursday november 19th in the business district of la defense. >> reporter: the plot was foiled, investigators say, when french authorities carried out this early morning raid last wednesday. it may explain why those inside the apartment appeared to be so well armed and ready as authorities moved. in the fire fight lasted an hour and nearly destroyed the building. abaaoud was killed in the assault. police say his cell phone delivered a wealth of information including calls he's believed to have made to the killers during the friday 13th attacks, possibly directing them as they zeroed in on their targets. the phone revealed abaaoud's movements that night, indicating he may have returned to the scenes of the massacres. nerves remain on edge in paris. several metro stations closed and several evacuations
4:05 pm
triggered by information authorities received. in belgium, the capital brussels remains virtually shut down as authorities fear they may be the next target of a paris style attack. hundreds of troops and police continue to patrol the city streets in numbers not seen since world war ii. the main focus back here in paris is trying to account for all of those who may have been involved in the paris attack, both the living and the dead. they need to make sure they know about all of those people. there is still dna they haven't accounted for. the fear is there could be others they don't know about who could still be on the loose, either on the run or planning some other kind of revenge. >> thank you very much, marty. some in that apartment they took in for questioning. they have been forced by french law to release them. people in that apartment that
4:06 pm
night. phil mudd, mitch silver and our terrorism analyst paul crushank. do you think they are closing in? >> i do think they are getting close. there was a key arrest sunday night. it was the guy who picked salah abdeslam up once he got to brussels. he was picked up by this other accomplice who is now under arrest. that puts them one step closer to finding salah abdeslam. >> we learned the ring leader abdelhamid abaaoud was driving around, calling on his cell phone to see what they were doing and going to each location to see what happened. why would he have done that? >> a couple of things we are learning here. that looks like an amateur move
4:07 pm
to me. even if they received rudimentary training, they think less about how to escape than the event itself. i think a couple of things happened here. he was nervous. he was trying to figure out the extent of the reaction against the attacks. i also think when they looked at the second round of attacks in northern paris they bit off more than they could chew. isis, this is their first major foray into a big terrorist operation in western europe. they are trying to compete with the memories of al qaeda. i think they said let's go for something huge, an attack and follow-on attack and got caught up in the complexity of the operation. >> i think the situation was he was the field general. he wanted to make sure the plot was going as planned. as we already know, some of the suicide bombers who were around the stadium were ineffective in their attacks. if there was a second wave coming along, he wanted to think about what is more effective in terms of how to deploy other suicide bombers.
4:08 pm
>> he was learning from what he deemed his mistake. abaaoud was calling the gunmen, which i mentioned a moment ago. calling them to check in. what does that say, he's worried they wouldn't go ahead with it? they might give up and flee as it appears salah abdeslam may have done? >> it appears he was a commander in the field. he was perhaps micro managing some of this, making sure that it went forward as he communicated that night with several perhaps of the attackers. just making sure they were going to follow through with this. of course later that night, he goes back to the scene of the crime. he goes to the bataclan. investigators are trying to figure out why he went back there. they trace his cell phone to those areas. one hypothesis, he went back there to film the carnage so they could be put into an isis propaganda video. isis are telling their
4:09 pm
operatives to film everything to use it for propaganda. that plot thwarted in belgium in january where he was the ring leader, they found gopro cameras there. he's got a track record of having his cells film stuff. >> in terms of the next attack, they were planning an attack on the financial district that could have happened the day they were able to go ahead with that raid or the day after. we are hearing france is concerned there has been successful radicalization of workers within its main airport, at fedex, air france cargo, among others. that is terrifying for people to hear. >> it is. it's something we've seen before in the uk. there was a situation with someone who worked within the uk airports has been radicalized, traveled back and forth to bangladesh. ultimately was in contact with al qaeda in yemen. fortunately he was detected. he was using encrypted communication back with al qaeda
4:10 pm
in yemen. it shows that trend of needing to detect people who are radicalized in sensitive jobs like at the airport, other transportation hubs is something very difficult for law enforcement and intelligence to do. >> phil, in the united states, someone in minneapolis had been radicalized. they found that individual but we are looking at tens of thousands, up to 70,000 employees who are not screened by security services, cia or fbi. >> that's right. mitch hit something critical. when al qaeda in yemen was trying to stage a follow-on attack, when they failed with that attempt to take down an airliner over detroit, they tried to put cartridges on a cargo aircraft. we talk about how you screen somebody at the front end. how you get somebody who might be radicalized applying for the job. what we learned and mitch referred to is there are people in jobs already who are trying to self-recruit into al qaeda. the other thing, in addition to screening people applying, i've got to think about when somebody
4:11 pm
is in the job, how do you have a recertification to ensure they are not radicalizing once they get in. >> in terms of where salah abdeslam may be, could he be in someplace like syria? >> he certainly could be on the way to syria. i think they feel they are getting closer to him as i was saying, this associate who picked him up once he got back to brussels, he was brought back by two friends driving through the night. they've got that guy in custody now. every step of the way they are getting closer and closer. i wouldn't be surprised if there is an arrest in the next 24 to 48 hours. >> see whether it's an arrest or he does try to go down with some horrific act. thanks to all three of you. exclusive new video of the russian plane shot down after only seconds in turkish air space. the pilot meeting a brutal death on the ground.

4:15 pm
breaking news in chicago tonight. police releasing a dash cam video showing a white police officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. it was a fatal encounter and led to murder charges for the officer. jason van dyke shot 17-year-old laquan mcdonald. the video is very graphic. was released moments ago for the first time. here it is.
4:16 pm
there is no audio. i wanted you to be able to watch it yourself. there is the teen walking down the street. there is a back story here. the bottom line is he was shot 16 times. i want to bring in former nypd officer bill stanton and don lemon. before we get to how this incident started, i want to ask you straight up, is there anything that could justify a kid walking away getting shot 16 times? >> yes, but i don't see it here. he is supposedly on pcp. there have been documented cases where people are shot multiple times. what i want to see from that video, i have more questions, how many times was he hit before he went down?
4:17 pm
>> that is a crucial question. we'll show it again in a moment. don, let me ask you to explain to viewers the back story, such that there is. how did this even start? >> october 24, 2014, over a year ago. there was a 911 call for this young man laquan mcdonald. they claimed he was in a trucking yard at archer heights in chicago. that he was attempting to break into vehicles. police got there. they had an altercation. >> this is before this happened. >> the officer you see here who shoots him just arrived moments before he shot -- i hate seeing that. moments before he shot him. where i was in the studio earlier, a much smaller monitor. this is awful. i'm glad you said nothing you see justifies on this particular tape what happened to that young man. if you look at the video, we played it longer in "the situation room." it looks like he was walking
4:18 pm
past the officer. we know he had a knife. >> let's make the crucial point here, it is a four-inch knife they had been told he had. some would argue in 20 feet it could be dangerous. bottom line, he didn't turn towards them. he didn't turn to go towards them. he was going somewhere else. the knife would not be a point here. >> for me looking at it at a lehman, it doesn't look like he was approaching the officers. looks like he was walking in the middle of the street or as they say jaywalking. maybe he had issues, who knows? it doesn't look like he was threatening officer or walking towards the officers. he is walking away. >> this is one angle. i'm not defending. >> you are raising where you would see questions? >> yes. he's walking. i need to know, was he given directives when he was shot, how many times was he shot standing up and was he shot from the
4:19 pm
angle? was it one shot then 15 when he was down? what precipitated his fear for the officer. >> that is all legitimate. you are asking us to look at this tape and we couldn't know everything. we weren't there. we don't hear the audio. looking at it for now, doesn't look right. >> it doesn't. >> how important is it there is no audio? i get to the point you know what happened here. is there any expletives or whatever he is saying to the cops, as bad as that might have been, wouldn't have justified what we saw. >> i'm always in the place we need to give the cop the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. this does not look good. i'm not going to defend the indefensible here, but were there directives begin to this man? did he have the knife in his hand? was he saying anything back? was he saying, "i'm going to kill you." the angle looks like he is
4:20 pm
walking away. we are seeing one angle. again, not defending, just asking questions. >> rosa flores, you have more details. what can you tel us? >> the prosecutor took us on a second by second account of what they investigated. she said it has taken this long, more an year because both state and federal authorities were involved in this. let me take you through what she took us through in this press conference. she says that the police officer arrived. once the officer arrived, she said within six seconds he started shooting his weapon. he started firing his weapon. if you look at that video, you'll see it. you see laquan mcdonald running and walking. if you take a look at the left side of the screen, i'm not sure if we are able to pause this video, but if you look at the
4:21 pm
left side of the screen, there is an officer with his gun raised and pointing towards laquan mcdonald. the actual angle of that video shifts. she mentioned that. why did that angle move? you were mentioning earlier, you don't see the officer in the shooting. that's why. the cruiser that had that dash cam was moving. it was in motion. so it changed the angle. you don't see the police officer. but you see the body. again, the prosecutor saying within six seconds of this officer arriving on scene he starts firing his weapon. the entire time that this occurred where you see the shooting, she says it's about 30 seconds. only the first couple of shots were shot at laquan mcdonald when he was standing. the others were when he was on the ground. that's what a lot of these community activists from the
4:22 pm
city of chicago are very upset about. that's one of the reasons they wanted the release of this video. they said it was very evident, once you saw it, that laquan mcdonald fell and there were more shots. of course we don't have sound. the prosecutor said if you look closely, you'll see puffs of smoke. that's one of the indicators they looked at when some of the shots were fired. they were looking at this second by second, trying to dissect this video, talking to witnesses, corroborating that evidence before coming forward. i should add she said that both state and federal investigators were investigating this. the feds are still investigating. we received a release this afternoon from the u.s. attorney saying that their investigation continues. during the press conference earlier today, the state's attorney said she actually was
4:23 pm
compelled to release these charges early, even though she had decided this a couple of weeks ago. she said i decided to release it early only because of the release of this video. we should point out the only reason why this video is being released at this point in time is because there was a journalist who filed a request and in a civil court the judge decided this tape had to be released to the public. again, a lot of the community leaders in this city had been asking for the release of this video. they thought it was important for transparency purposes. today after more than a year, we finally get to see those images. >> because a put a freedom of information act request out. >> i'm sorry. when i look at that, he's walking away. the more you look at it. it's not the angle of the cruiser. the first shot spins him around.
4:24 pm
if he's on the ground, why do they need to shoot any more? the more you look at it -- >> the more you look at it, the worse it gets. rosa adding an important detail. you see this from the angle of a cruiser. somebody is watching this guy walk. they got the 911 call. it's another cop that drives up and within six seconds starts shooting. a guy who doesn't know what's going on. >> in ferguson you saw me argue more strenuously. in this i'm leaning towards you guys. i'm not going to defend the indefensible. it does not look good. police officers do need the benefit of the doubt. >> as a journalist, we want all the facts. you are analyzing a videotape which is the story right now. in time more information will come out. i want people in chicago to be calm. you should be calm. >> this cop was charged with first degree murder.
4:25 pm
we are not saying this is outrage, this person has not been charged. this person has been charged with first degree murder. >> you cannot fight violence with violence. people should protest. that is our right here. there is a systemic long-standing problem with the chicago police department that i witnessed myself as a man of color living in that city. i was shot and moved from new york city to chicago. >> how much are you willing to share? >> i don't want to share it. it's not about me. but i experienced it. i want viewers to know this is a problem in chicago. it has been a problem. the mayor got up there today, fine. things are better than they have been, according to them. this is something people have been discussing for years. it has fallen on deaf ears. >> if this pans out the way it is, it is a bad cop that did a
4:26 pm
bad thing. not a white cop, a cop. this shouldn't be, unless this cop yelled something, we have proof this was racial, race shouldn't play a component in the shooting. it's a bad cop. >> the cop was white and the suspect in this case was black. >> unless there was proof to show this man was racist, there shouldn't be color involved. it's a bad cop, pure and simple. >> thank you to both of you. that video breaking. we have exclusive new video of a plane being shot down today only seconds after crossing into turkish air space. the pilot shot to death as he attempted to parachute to safety by men yelling allah akbar. >> new york city scrambling to add more detectives to track terror leads. the cold truth is, (coughing) you can't work from home when you're sick. you need real relief. alka-seltzer plus day cold & flu has three cold symptom fighters to relieve your tough symptoms.
4:27 pm
(truck horn) alka-seltzer plus. in panama, which is a city of roughly 2 million people, we are having 5,000 new cars being sold every month. this is a very big problem for us
4:28 pm
with respect to fast and efficient transportation. it's kind of a losing proposition to keep going this way. we are trying to tackle the problem with several different modes. one of them is the brand new metro. we had a modest forecast: 110,000 passengers per day in the first line. we are already over 200,000. our collaboration with citi has been very important from the very beginning. citi was our biggest supporter and our only private bank. we are not only being efficient in the way we are moving people now, we are also more amicable to the environment. people have more time for the family and it's been one of the most rewarding experiences to hear people saying: "the metro has really changed my life." this is black friday.zy. oh my god. does anybody want to be part of this? nooooo. well, chevy has a better way, with black friday deals
4:29 pm
all month long. that's a great idea. what if you could get up to twenty percent cash back when you bought it? bam. twenty percent back? that's awesome. it's black friday. find your tag and get cash back for 20% of the msrp on select 2015 vehicles in stock. that's over forty-nine hundred dollars on this chevy malibu. cool, time to go shopping.
4:30 pm
we just obtained exclusive new video that shows the wreckage of a russian war plane shot down near the turkish/syrian border
4:31 pm
by turkey. though say the jet was only in turkish air space less than 30 seconds. president obama defended the action. >> turkey, like every country, has a right to defend its territory and its air space. >> peyton walsh is "out front" in istanbul. >> this is the moment the war on isis lurched yet again out of control. a russian plane at 9:24 local time turkey says in its air space is hit by turkish f-16s. warned to leave ten times in five minutes. releasing a map where it violated their borders. the pilots become the target as they go down.
4:32 pm
>> we killed him, says one rebel. >> one dead before he hits the ground. russia insisted its plane never left syrian air space and sent helicopters to rescued the man. they hit resistance. one fired by rebels with another russian marine killed in this operation. russia's first casualties and a bold move by nato member that left vladimir putin fuming. >> translator: today's loss for us was a stab in the back from terrorist accomplices. i cannot describe it in any other way. >> reporter: turkey standing firm, calling an emergency nato meeting saying russia violated their air space before. >> translator: everyone should know that turkey has the right to respond if its air space is violated, despite repeated warnings.
4:33 pm
>> reporter: another terrifying moment. another reminder syrian war finds constant new ways. we don't know the fate of the stage of that second pilot. also we don't know how long that russian aircraft was in turkish air space. that isn't clear at this stage. that uncertainty does not help anybody here draw a line under a moment, an instant which frankly everybody in the world wants over as quickly as possible. >> thank you very much. that was an incredibly disturbing video. i'm joined by former cia operative bob baer. you believe and when we see that video, it is shocking and hard to watch when you're watching someone laugh shooting down those pilots and killing them, as they drifted down completely defenseless. it is horrific to see.
4:34 pm
this is a very big moment. >> i think it's a huge moment. i think putin is going to respond. he could do any number of things like putting in surface-to-air missiles in syria. i wouldn't put it past him. he's not going to back down. if you listen to pout incarefully, he said their presence, their military presence in syria is an act of self-defense because so many people are coming to syria getting training and one day will come back. that's the way he framed this conflict. the chances of this escalating from here without deconfliction is good. >> certainly framing the president of france can understand now. what happened here, when you see the plane shot down out of the sky, the turks said they warned the plane ten times. the united states says that plane was in turkish air space 30 seconds or less, and a member
4:35 pm
of nato shoots a plane out of the sky? is that protocol? it seems shocking. >> it's not protocol. the issue is the attitude of the aircraft, what that aircraft is trying to do is what's paramount. obviously, the turkish f-16, u.s.-built f-16 had a position and had an attitude on that aircraft that it was able to pick it up, paint it, identify it as something other than a friendly aircraft. there are additional steps you can go through before you would engage to shoot to kill. in a situation like this where you see an aircraft, warning shots are not to be used almost at all. it's part of the protocol. warning shots are if somebody is wandering through your air space, you can't communicate with them and you want to say i think you're offcourse, move away. in this particular case, they needed to be able to determine what the attitude of the russian aircraft was. it probably was not in an attack
4:36 pm
posture. clearly, the russians right now are looking at this thing trying to figure out, we've got a u.s. aircraft and we now had the first gun fight between a u.s. aircraft and former soviet russian aircraft and they are going to do forensics to figure out what went wrong. the key issue is that the russians are hugely provocative. they have been provocative hundreds of times before. they are somewhat cavalier with their use of military force. when they poke us in the eye, go after other elements to provoke a response, you end up with something like this. >> bob, again you see someone yelling "allah akbar" shooting a russian pilot as he floats defenseless to the ground, you have used worth world war iii. >> i stick by that. this mosaic in the middle east of conflict is getting out of control.
4:37 pm
it's not just russia, turkey, it's iran, saudi arabia. it is expanding rather than contracting and nobody has a strategic plan. we have to do something now, sit everybody down and if ig this out. the way things are going now, i wouldn't be surprised if there's a wider conflict between turkey and russia unless we can step in the middle of this. they need to deconflict right now. the turks are determined to protect those people in northern syria. if the russians continue to bomb them, the turks will respond in a like manner. >> that puts the united states in a very tough spot, obviously, turkey with a nato member. thanks to both of you. up next, isis may be eyeing soft targets in the u.s. as new york city desperately adds more detectives to counter the threats against the crucial thanksgiving day parade. >> video release showeding a black teen riddled with bullets at the hand of a chicago police officer six seconds after arriving on the scene, shooting 16 times to kill.
4:38 pm
i take pictures of sunrises, but with my back pain i couldn't sleep and get up in time. then i found aleve pm. aleve pm is the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. i'm back. aleve pm for a better am. after a dvt blood clot.mind when i got out of the hospital what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? 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. six seconds after arriving on nr 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
4:39 pm
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.
4:40 pm
come happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him.
4:41 pm
a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta.
4:42 pm
the nypd preparing a never before seen level of force for the thanksgiving day parade. the city on high alert after isis threatened to attack. about 200 heavily armed officers from a new counterterror unit will deploy in addition to thousands of police officers and special forces teams. the news comes as a bulletin reveals the paris attackers scoped out the concert hall and restaurants before their massacre. law enforcement being warned to watch for would-be isis plotters doing the same. pamela brown, the bulletin mentioned specific types of targets at risk in the united states for isis attack. what are they? >> that's right. law enforcement here in the u.s. is increasingly concerned in the wake of the paris attacks that home-grown violent extremists will be emboldened to launch attacks targeting members of the general public, people out enjoying their days, going to the movie, going to restaurants.
4:43 pm
this is an evolution. prior to paris, a lot of the concern was isis would try to attack people affiliated with the government. after paris, the concern now has changed. the bulletin says isil may expand efforts to conduct attacks against soft targets based on the success of the paris attacks. that extends beyond targeting the government, military and law enforcement officials and facilities. it also says that while it may embolden home grown violent extremists to do something similar, the larger scale attacks, coordinated teams, would be more likely in a place like europe because of its proximity to syria and iraq. >> thank you very much. of course, as you mentioned, syria and iraq, one of the biggest debates after the paris attacks, whether the u.s. should allow syrian refugees to enter the country. out front the dean of the bush school at texas a&m university, ambassador ryan crocker.
4:44 pm
you know more about this than anyone else. more than half the nation's governors are demanding a halt to syrian refugees. more than half the american people say they should stay out of the u.s. even if screened. the house passed a bill to do this. you say this is wrong. >> thanks for having me, erin. i fully understand security concerns in the wake of the paris and beirut attacks. i have those concerns, too, but i think we have to measure carefully what the threat is likely to be and where it comes from. i just don't think it's going to come from a refugee population that is going to be more carefully screened and vetted than any other category of foreigners seeking to gain admission to this country. it's a two-year process. so if islamic state wants to get terrorists into the country, they are going to be far better off using terrorists who have
4:45 pm
passports that don't require visas. visa waiver program in effect for western europe. they don't need a visa or vetting or screening. we need to be sure we are looking at the right threat and not turning our back and looking at something that isn't going to come at us. >> president obama said he wants 10,000 refugees. let me make it clear to our audience, you are putting your money where your mouth is. you are saying 100,000, ten times more than the president wants. when i was in paris, a syrian refugee told me how easy it would be to get a passport, a fake passport. $750. he said it was no problem. here is how he explained it. >> will cost you about 700 euros or less maybe. >> i could have one of these -- >> by your name, an american name, arabic name, any name. >> anything i want. >> your photo, your name.
4:46 pm
anything you want. >> people hear that, and ambassador, it's frightening. you say even if you were to get a fake syrian passport and pose as a refugee, it would take time. we hear refugee stories are to be taken at face value. they say this is my story and customs officials are told not to question it. >> the vetting process is a long one. it's not, you know, ten questions in one afternoon. this goes on for months and months and months. i just don't think an organization like islamic state is going to want to put an operative in that position where the chances of detection are far greater than if that individual was just seeking a tourist visa. once again, why bother with masquerading as a refugee or buying a fake passport when they've got several thousand

fighters who have genuine west european passports? that's where the threat is. that's what we've got to look at. >> you wrote an op-ed in the "wall street journal" about this, "you call it al qaeda version 6.0. the islamic state is far better organized, equipped and funded than the original. several thousand carry western passports. all terrorists have to do is get on a plane and head west." is it that easy? >> obviously, there are controls in place. a number of these european passport holders are on watch lists, no-fly lists. i doubt if all of them are. it only take a few to get through. it is not a cakewalk into this country. we've done a tremendous amount with security and intelligence since 9/11. my point simply is that the threat is far more likely to come from individuals trained and determined who hold valid european passports or perhaps

even american passports than it's likely to come from a refugee who would undergo two years worth of screening vetting. >> ambassador, thank you very much. i appreciate your taking the time tonight, making your case here.

pictures, as you can see, these are protests on the streets of chicago. just people gathering at this moment. they are gathering because video was released just within the past hour of laquan mcdonald, a black teenager, being shot and killed by a white officer. in the video, you will see mcdonald walking down the street. it's graphic, i want to warn you. they had gotten a 911 call about
4:53 pm
him possibly trying to break in to cars or trucks in a parking lot. then, to the left of the screen you see an officer. we'll pause it here. this officer arrives on the scene. he's not the officer whose dash cam video is capturing this. the new officer shows up and within six seconds of arriving shoots mcdonald and opens fire. mcdonald falls after what appears to be the first shot. within the next couple of shots and then there were 16 shots total. officer van dyke has been charged with first-degree murder. he has been charged. chicago's mayor is calling for peace tonight. ryan young is on the ground "outfront" tonight. what is happening where you are? >> reporter: we are moving down michigan avenue and we can see police officers stationed throughout the city. in fact, we saw more than 40 bicycle officers who were stationed at each intersection as we moved through. several different police officers were ready just in case anything happened but we knew those protesters were going to
4:54 pm
try to shut down some streets. we know there are about 300 protesters at east roosevelt. we've been talking to these people over the last week or so just about the idea of what is going to happen when this video is released because so many people were hurt. so many people were bracing themselves for this. a lot of protesters we talked to said they wanted to the protests to remain peaceful. they wanted to show some sort of disruption but not get involved with anything with the police. we've also been told they will probably have some black friday protests as well. once this video was released, we knew people would take to the streets. we talked to mccarthy before he went out there with his officers, superintendent gary mccarthy. he was asking for peace. the officer has been charged with murder. the video has been released. no one is trying to hide this and wants to make sure the public understands that there's a process that's involved here and it's all taking place. the criminal justice system is working. but for others, people say the police department is trying to
4:55 pm
hide this. some of the protesters were making sure before we left today that we understood that they were going to be out there for the next few hours making sure that the police department heard that they want things to change in the city. >> they certainly want things to change. i was about to say, the video, incredibly disturbing to watch. the officer has been charged with first-degree murder. we'll show it again on the screen as mcdonald is running down the street, an officer comes out, opens fire and shoots 16 times. mcdonald, of course, was dead on the scene there, as you see, walking away from police, not towards them, and being shot and murdered. we'll be right back. no...
