violence to the origins of the pyramids and now his not so fun fact on the founding fathers, this morning the vetting process continues. it's 5:30 on the east coast. 2:30 out west. this is "way too early." ♪ working at the pyramid tonight working at the pyramid ♪ ♪ working at the pyramid tonight working at the pyramid ♪ good morning. it's friday, november 6th. i'm louis bergdorf. two candidates bumped down from the main stage and two others failing to make the cut for the undercard. chris christie and former arkansas governor mike huckabee who won the iowa caucus back in 2008 are in the earlier 7:00 p.m. contest. lindsey graham and three-term governor george pataki of new york are out of the debate
2:31 am
entirely. the staging was based on four of the most recent national polls, but critics note that senator graham's name was not even listed in the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. and jeb bush tweeted that he s disagrees with the rules that prevent graham voice from being heard saying, quote, his foreign policy message is an important one in particular and campaigning in new hampshire before the decision yesterday christie said he's undeterred. >> i'm going to be debating somebody on tuesday night whether it's the folks that i've been debating with before or other folks. i don't really care in one respect. put a podium out here on the foliage and get a few people out here. i'll debate them here. there's 90 plus days to go to new hampshire. we're moving numbers in new hampshire, and we're just going to keep working hard. >> ben carson responded to skepticism over comments he made about the pyramids saying they were built by the biblical figure and not for egyptian pharaohs. >> some people believe in the bible, like i do, and don't find
2:32 am
that to be silly at all and believe that god created the earth and don't find that to be silly at all. the second progressives try to ridicule it and they're welcome to do that. >> carson was criticized for his claims about american history in a facebook post wednesday, carson compared his lack of political experience to the founding fathers saying, quote, every signer of the declaration of independence had no elected office experience. what they had was a deep belief that freedom is a gift from god. the claim was rated false by "the washington post," and carson changed the post to say they had no experience in federal office. at the time the federal government did not exist. now carson was also under scrutiny for reported discrepancies in his life story particularly the ones about the violent episodes in his youth before he turned to religion. including the attempted stabbing of a friend named bob, which he wrote about in his best-selling autobiography. but a number of carson's chimedhood friends told cnn they had no recollection of him being hot tempered or violent leading carson to acknowledge some of the names were made up.
2:33 am
>> i don't want to expose people without their knowledge, but, remember, when i was 14 when the knifing episode occurred, that's when i changed. that's when most of those people began to know who i was. they didn't know me before that. one of the ones where i threw a rock and broke someone's glasses, that occurred when i was maybe about 7 or 8. the stabbing -- attempted stabbing incident occurred when i was 13 or 14. trying to hit my mother in the head with a hammer, that was around the same time as the stabbing incident. unless they were there at that time, why would they know about that? that's very silly. everyone has childhood memories of things they do that other people unless they were specifically involved would know about. i don't know why that's hard for people to under. >> and carson's top rival donald trump has picked up on the story
2:34 am
tweeting, it is either a total fabrication or, if true, even worse, trying to hit his mother over the head with a hammer or stabbing a friend. now carson has also examined a potential ly untapped source of supporters for republicans, black voters. "the new york times" reports that despite raising massive sums of money carson has yet to hire a staff member focused on turning out african-americans in the primary. yesterday his campaign rolled out new radio ads in urban markets. >> i'm very hopeful that i'm not the only one who is willing to pick up the baton of freedom because freedom not free and we must fight for it every day. every one of us must fight for it because we're fighting for our children in the next generation. ♪ if we want to get america back on track ♪ ♪ we have to vote ben carson as a matter of fact ♪ ♪ go out and vote >> i'm ben carson and i approve this message. >> carson ads are hitting the airwaves in several states, mainly southern ones, with open primaries where democrats can also vote.
2:35 am
but at a book signing yesterday carson said he had reservations about the ad. >> there are people who felt that was a way to do things and they're entitled to their opinions. >> what about you? >> you know, i support them in doing that, but i probably would have taken a little different approach. >> both donald trump and ben r carson will soon be getting secret service protection according to a dhs spokesperson. a number of factors were taken into consideration including national polling numbers, the amount of contributions received, and the threat environment. they are among the earliest candidates to get the protection. president obama was given secret service protection earlier than any other candidate in u.s. history. now hillary clinton was on the west coast last night picking up an endorsement from l.a. mayor eric garcetti. she joined jimmy kimmel. they talked about heavy scrutiny to her potential rivals.
2:36 am
>> i saw you live tweeting the republican debate. >> yes. >> is that a fun thing for you to do? >> well, it's a combination of being appalled and being amused. >> i assume you figured you would have guessed you would be running against him. when he comes out with a slogan like jeb can fix it, do you like back at the office die laughing? >> it's really hard to do this and, you know, people's campaigns change. you start with something that doesn't necessarily mean you'll stick with it all the way because you get feedback. he's obviously trying to continue to relate to the republican electorate. >> it sounds like he's running a handyman business. should be on the side of a van. >> well, you know, if i were to advise him i'd say, you know, there's a lot you can do about trying to fix things and maybe they should put a number on the side of the bus. >> overseas now u.s. aviation officials are now reviewing
2:37 am
airport security measures abroad after that russian jetliner crash in egypt. the obama administration says an announcement could come as early as today. currently no u.s. airlines fly to, from, or over egypt's sinai peninsula. during a radio interview president obama discussed the likelihood that a bomb brought down that plane. >> we know that the procedures we have here in the united states are different than some of the procedures that existed for outbound and inbound flights there and we're going to spend a lot of time just making sure that our own investigators and our own intelligence community figures out exactly what's going on before we make any definitive pronouncements. it is certainly possible that there was a bomb onboard. >> the kremlin has called the rush to call it a bomb premature and a mechanical failure hasn't been ruled out. new insight into just how badly a plan to train syrian rebels failed.
2:38 am
according to the "usa today," the pentagon spent $384 million on the program or $2 million a fighter. of the 180 syrians vetted, trained and equipped, the paper reports only 95 are in syria today. this is the latest from the pentagon in september. >> can you tell us what the total number of trained fighters remains? >> it's a small number. the ones that are in the fight we're talking four or five. >> the training program was canceled last month but the u.s. is still providing weapons and equipment. the pentagon also disputes the $2 million per trainee figure saying it's more like $30,000 per fighter. now to a new report on the air raid on doctors without borders hospital in afghanistan. there was no fighting in the area at the time according to the findings from the medical charity.
2:39 am
they also gave grisly details about the hour long bombardment saying patients burned in their beds, medical staff were decapitated and lost limbs and others were shot by a circling ac-130 gunship while fleeing the burning building. president obama has apologized d for the attack that left 30 people dead. doctors without borders has called it a war crime and is insisting on an international probe. now the story of an illinois cop who authorities say may have killed himself to cover up years of embezzlement is getting more disturbing by the day. police say text messages from months before his carefully staged suicide show that joe gliniewicz tried to arrange for a high-ranking gang member to put a hit on a village administrator he feared would expose him as a thief. investigators also found small packets of cocaine in his desk. while gliniewicz suggested the hitman might plant something on him, the administrator of the drugs are not thought to be part of the plot. authorities say gliniewicz stole tens of thousands of dollars from the police explorer program to pay for his mortgage and
2:40 am
other expenses. a source close to the investigation tells our chicago affiliate his wife and one of his sons are also under investigation. now there's some disturbing new details in the shooting death of a chicago fourth grader. police now say the 9-year-old was lured into an alley on monday and executed because of his father's alleged gang ties. investigators say the child's father is not cooperating. while the father accuses police of spending more time pursuing him than his son's killer. here is rahm emanuel fighting back tears. >> i hope they go to a place that will freeze over and never see another day of freedom. >> chicago has been robbed of more than 400 murders, 2,500 shootings so far. new data puts the number of uninsured americans at a new low according to a survey from the cdc. the uninsured rate has fallen to 9%. the obama administration credits the affordable care act with a
2:41 am
45% decline since 2010. all right. now let's turn to business where new york's attorney general is investigating whether exxon mobil deliberately misled people about climate change. jeff, what are these allegations all about here? >> this is fascinating, louis. the real question, has exxon mobil been full of hot air when it comes to its position on climate change? the new york attorney general is trying to suggest their own scientific research points out that climate change is real, does exist, and is a consequence of what's happening with burning fossil fuels and, of course, exxon being a major producer of oil this would have significant implications. i think this is one to keep your eye on. exxon has already said there is no case to answer here, but the attorney general is clearly on a
2:42 am
trolling exercise to see whether there is anything inside the company that suggests that they knew climate change is a real threat but they were making the case in the opposite direction. moving you on, unions are not happy about the transpacific trade agreement. they have vowed to object and prevent if they can the ratification of this agreement which would reduce tariffs and taxes on goods across 40% of the world economy. president obama has been a real champion of this tpp deal but there are legislators alongside those union members who feel that this just goes too far and would not be good for u.s. business. >> we'll see how that plays out. geoff cutmore, thank you so much. still ahead, the buckeye battle, highlights from "thursday night football" cincinnati versus cleveland and yesterday the story of serena
