street. he may have had a familiarity with manhattan before the attempted bomb. >> peter, thank you for bringing us up to date from connecticut. let me bringl+y in nbc news windram. >> we're getting information from pakistan thatij the initia reports that shahzad istw8!su f karachi may be either inaccurate or old and that his family is from near peshawar in the northwest frontier, which is an area that has been very, very active in terms of taliban and other islamic terrorist groups. confirmation on that, but that is what we are told by a senior pakistani official in islamabad. so this could addñjíux yet ano dimension if he is or his family is from the northwest frontier.
12:01 pm
>> here he is, 30 years old. he became a u.s. citizen. do we know when we moved here from pakistan? >> i do not know. i know he's been a citizen for a little more than a year. i have been told his most recens trip back to pakistan wasx; after he had been sworn in as a u.s. citizen. that was more than a year ago. little more than a year ago, february of 2009. i do not know how long he had been in the country before that, but obviously, he would have been here for several years. >> and the neighbor from that connecticut home told reporters that he lived there with a wife and family. do you have any idea at this point where those family members might be? >> i've heard reports and i don't know if they are fully accurate, that they are indeed in pakistan. >> and do you know what he did for a living here in new york? >> i've seen the same reports
12:02 pm
that peter referred to, that neighbors believed he worked on wall street. of course, that's a wide range of job descriptions, just working on wall street. but we do know as peter has also reported, that he default ed, much lower rent quarter in bridgeport. >> thank you very much. i know you're staying on top of this. new york leaders have criticized ñ homeland security dollars have been spread throughout the country. my big question today, should more money for fighting clearly a favored target, new york. you can share your thoughts with me. former new york governor joins me now. do you think new york gets a fair share of homeland security
12:03 pm
dollars, enough to fight off what these costs are? >> no, i )w#don't. obviously, new york has been a target in the past and we just saw over the weekend, it remains a target. clearly, new york, washington are the places that have the greatest risk and should be given a disportion amount of resources. we were fortunate saturday night h noticed it, turned it into the police and the police and fire department acted well, but again, this is another case where this administration, we are responding after somethingwd5
12:04 pm
murdered. i think this administration just had got to change his approach. >> however, in this case, if we don't know yet whether he is a link to international terror organizations. he said he acted alone. if he was in foreclosure on his home, you can lead to the conclusion that there were money problems. money problems make people do crazy things. so, how do you, as a team of investigators, thwart a plot if someone's acting alone? >> it's not a question of whether or not he was acting alone in this one incident. it's time and again this administration has failed to proactively failed to engage in the efforts we need to make to prevent these efforts from occurring. we don't know yet if he acted alone. there are going to be incidents where you couldn't have prevented it or detected it, but too often, that is not the case. look at the case of the ft. hood
12:05 pm
shooter. today, senator lieberman is trying to find out what we knew before that happened and the administration is stone walling him. why? we need to know whether there was information and knowledge we had that could have prevented this. >> you were, i just want to point out for the viewers who might have forgotten, you were governor during 9/11. the fact you had new yorkers who saw and said something, that policemen on horseback who went in and started assessing the situation and then an arrest has come in less than 48 hours. >> i think it says a great deal that new york is asjjdrq" prepa any city or part of america can be. we have great police, fire officers and an administration with mike bloomberg and ray kelly who understand the threat. but again, it was only after smoke was seen in a loaded
12:06 pm
vehicle that was about to explode and with horrible consequences that this action d.mñ taken, which s often, we are responding after the fact as opposed to having the intelligence and aggressive policies to find these plots before they are hatched. >> great to see you. i appreciate the fact you've come in. we have more breaking details from nbc news producer, carol grisanti. >> we're learning that the pakistani police have arrested be facilitators of shahzad while he was in pakistan. there are rumors that he received militant training in a village in the northwest of the country. these five suspects just may helped him get that militant training. >> i still have governor pataki, what's your reaction?
12:07 pm
al-qaeda training camp and training program and he went there and spent five or six months, why didn't we know that? you can't stop every plot, but this apparently involved a great many people and someone who traveled back to pakistan for months at a time. >> do you know, carol, the details about how they tracked these five guys? >> at this point, the details are very sketchy. >> thank you for staying on top í informed of every new detail, but again, carol grisanti just reporting that pakistani authorities have arrested five associates of the times square bombing suspect at this point, they say he was involved in military training there outside in the northwestern part of peshawar, so we'll stay on top of that. when we learn more, so will you. on to the other big story today. calm waters in the gulf coast
12:08 pm
today as the oily blob the side of delaware lurks just off the coast. minutes ago, president obama pledged support for the local fishermen in the gulf holding their breathe. >> we are committed to preventing as much damage as possible to contain the impact of this spill. >> crews are laying down hundreds of thousands of feet of protective boom, but they're not worki ining o>táueverywhere. so, what is working, according to bp. chemicals that stop the oil from reaching the surface an the company says it's making progress. nbc news correspondent michelle kosinski is in gulf port. how's it looking there? >> reporter: it's interesting you mentioned holding their breath. in some cases, literally. some of the people who have been
12:09 pm
out on the water have reported smelling the oil. other than that, they haven't experienced effects of it. we've seen hotel cancellations, seafood restaurants here are running out of their frozen supplies and when that runs out, they're worried about where they're going to get other seafood since fishing is closed for the next several days in a big part of the gulf. people don't know what to do and for a lack of anything better to do, they're signing up as volunteers. thousands have signed up so far. treat endangered birds if they're affected and cleaning the beaches. >> if you've got more volunteers, it's more people to spread around the work and tackle that problem. the death toll is climbing for a host of weekend southern storms. at least 29 dead in tennessee, mississippi and kentucky. rescuers in nashville may find more victims as the

breaking news from pakistan. we've just learned from our nbc news producer that authorities there have arrested five men who are reportedly associates of shahzad faisal, the suspect in that times square failed bomb plot. the authorities believe that faisal was at a military training camp in the northwestern part of peshawar and that these five men were again, they're under arrest in that country. coast to coast, we have you covered far and wide beginning in california with a stabbing at a target. police arrested a woman who allegedly attacked four people in los angeles. investigators say the woman swung a kitchen knife and carving knife at her victims, critically wounding one. a sheriff's deputy pulled his

12:17 pm
let me ask you, because you sit on the terrorism and homeland security committee. we've just learned that pakistani authorities have arrested five associates of the suspect. they say faisal shahzad was training at a military camp there. what's your reaction to these details? >> it's really alarming when we see there is such a connection. i've gone to some other countries to see the types of things going on and there is quite a network out there. let us not forget that. and i think one of the most important things is how did this get stopped. because somebody noticed what was going on. we are our own first defense. we get a lot of information. we comb through a lot of information. we have stopped a lot of things from happening, but not everything can be stopped. >> former governor george pataki was just on with me and he put
12:18 pm
the responsibility of twaurting plots on the administration and says obama's administration has clearly failed at preventing these attacks from happening. >> first of all, i think that former governor pataki is no longer privy to the type of information someone like myself would be and we have stopped many things from happening. in the samey president bush, we had the same people working on these. they stopped many things, but still, things get through. you cannot stop every individual who decides he's going to build a bomb and drive it in on an suv. there are major metropolitian places all over our nation, so i would say that in this particular case, former governor pataki is incorrect. >> congresswoman loretta sanchez, thank you. we've talked about the economic impact of the gulf oil spill, but what about the political impact?

botched bomb plot there in times squa square. we're learning five suspects have been arrested in pakistan. nbc news producer, carol grisanti, is on the phone with us from pakistan. what are you learning, carol? >> we believe that the five suspects are believed to be facilitators of faisal shahzad while he was in pakistan last year. these five may have helped him get to a training camp outside of peshawar, where it is rumored tonight that he received militant training. this training camp is run by the pakistani taliban.wñ it is in a village called pavi. it is a mountainous area and close toñr pakistan's tribal ars in the northwest part of the country. we think that faisal shahzad drove there last year with a friend. his friend called muhammad rayhan. trip at least, but it would have left no trace.

12:33 pm
so the u.s., pakistani cooperation becomes a real focal point. was it part of an organized group we need to be paying attention to now. >> we're hearing from nbc investigative producers that officials are looking at a lot of overlappingwrñ points here i people involved in pakistani-based terror groups. they're trying to investigate how these ties might include faisal shahzad. that being said, communications are going to be looked at.p3ñ you already have the former governor of new york, george pataki, saying the bush administration has really dropped the ball in preventing these things from happening. if there's a link to another group, are we failing? >> to all respect to governor pataki, that type of comment is simply just inappropriate and
12:34 pm
worthless. the nypd did a fabulous job. now is not the type to be pointing political fingers. it's this type of approach that creates such a fischer in our coun3 bigger issue is how we deal with an evolving threat. he was not a lone wolf. the question is, a broader conspiracy. that's what we're goingl(on to together to understand. >> how do you explain how some investigators have described the bomb &wçryset-up. that it was amateurish, at best, not the gold standard of potential attacks. >> it's a good news story. safer that shahzad did work with an organized group in pakistan,
12:35 pm
difficult it was for this bomb to actually go off. the construct of the bomb was not that good. ourself up into a total lather, we should ask ourself a basic question. is this the best they can do? if they can come up with this as the best type of explosive approach, then that's not that good. so maybe in the broader scheme of things, we're doing pretty well. the level of training is not as good in 2010 as it was several years ago. >> about 50 hours or so after the planned attack came to the attention of ip investigators, not only do you have an ais arrest in the united states, but in pakistan, too.r>ñ thank you. 29 dead in mississippi and tennessee after severe storms last weekend. rain caused heavy flooding in nashville and forced thousands to run from their homes. the weather channel's mike

12:47 pm
affected by this oil slick? >> well, right now, we're told that there's not really an affect in the prices. one of the reasons is there's the national restaurant association says that 75% of louisiana's catch is in beds west of mississippi, outside the range of the oil slick at this point and darden restaurants,aá which owns red lobster, tells us a lot of the deep water fish they have is closer to florida and outside the range. so right now, it's good news, but might be too early to tell. >> keeping our eye on it. thanks a lot. taking a look at key events, in an hour, bp officials will brief house members and staff on the oil spill. that will be held behind closed doors. 15 minutes later, a judge will sentence the former producer who
