So what are investigators looking forward Jeff plans is a retired FBI agent he joins us by phone.
Jeff and tell me what is -- FBI do now.
Well -- starts with a period of -- stay really have to determine now if you don't -- cool -- could have done -- -- would have done it.
Whether -- case domestic terrorism -- cases international terrorism.
-- don't I don't.
Here Jeff but.
-- not -- -- I get to hear the control room I hear the control room talking here at fox but I can't -- Jeff.
Jeff yes I'm here -- Greta.
Now that I can you tell me what it what -- it -- -- people do now how to investigate this.
Well a lot of people specifically -- put your fragments of that ball and try to piece it together to 22 so the lead them to where that material was purchased.
You know look see they pan am one of three bombing -- -- Not based on a piece of material that was smaller fingernails -- Although that -- may have been not completely destroyed -- -- the I eighty device which is probably what it was.
They're gonna look at -- tractors put that together and in addition -- looking at surveillance tape talking to insist.
And treasurer who is in the area at that particular time when those bombs were placed in those locations.
I actually do this or reverse engineering on these bomb parts that they.
Well the people epitomize investigations -- from the ATF was involved as well and the FBI.
But they're pretty experienced and -- -- want to bundle the years in the that the benefit of having.
If you're the benefit to having any -- before any all the IED devices that we had.
In Iraq and Afghanistan they've got a lot of experience because they've been studying this thing so they know what these things are made us.
And they know what those little fragments.
-- composed of originally or what they.
Where they came from originally so they will be able to effectively trying to -- step back together and NATO troops to the point where -- -- purchased.
We're so we're -- -- or or where was purchased it was done so domestically.
And then you just solid actually follow the cash only this time you're following.
He had the equipment that was used in the jurors used to make bombs.
How can find out where these primitive and the bomb -- blown up.
-- find out where the pieces were purchased.
Well you know -- -- tiny pieces -- that they can you know they might be able to put it back together completely.
But they'll be able to.
The most likely now we're done talking optimistically here.
Most likely put together.
At least get enough of the signature to see what those pieces so where they came from.
Originally -- anyone Autry fingernail sized piece used to solve that -- tactic brought down it.
An airliner -- can now -- 98 -- But along -- the other evidence is well it's not going to be forensic are going to be looking at witnesses testimony -- -- -- looking at the surveillance video.
They were looking any type of information that you -- before we have any sort of intelligence that they have other people know about.
And it's not probably not just one person that just that that knows about this so other people have knowledge and -- -- trying to their intelligence sources.
To figure out who that might just be just from from an intelligence gathering standpoint.
However the fact that one was still a lot one exploded and then a number of seconds later a second one does that necessarily suggest it was staggered that this that timing device -- that there was -- -- -- -- debt and is there anything you can glean from that and are set -- At this point just speculation.
Yeah -- you really don't know at this point I don't think that's a cool at this point in time.
They probably wanted to my guess would be the -- -- -- -- this closely.
In time this possible to do the most damage.
I think most people attracted by that rather than as people start to clear the area.
That would lead -- to believe that it's done trauma he could some sort of -- device that triggered it which would be most likely shall all.
That allows you to cellphone detonators allow you to get pretty -- distance from that.
From that certain that the bomb itself so you don't have to be close by and so the timing my guess they want to go off pretty pretty pretty close at times that.
And it was an exact for them.
Police -- not close by every city can do -- -- -- they have.
Two cities over remaining hot greasy not close -- cell -- be in the debt net detonator.
You know PM ETV that remote.
It really -- it.
It could be the other side of the world's going to have a social -- -- got the number call.
You call a number and that's what causes the -- to cool off so you can not going to connected to some network connect devices.
Yes you can be in China.
And I suppose that I mean I Saddam's suspected -- that -- that cell -- My feeling we tracked down assuming it's now one that is just one of those dispose of -- -- set.
Tossed away right.
It well that would be very optimistic if it wasn't one of those once that was costly way to -- phones.
Those -- the devices are used by -- drug dealers mob figures -- to avoid detection so anybody with any smarts would.
Whoever would have been had we had one of -- devices -- Feedburner -- in Baghdad down your traditional ritual burning her.
Sophisticated and used this set up the immediate that is upon them -- to -- -- -- we don't know that it is at this point in me and made good that we.
But debt -- it -- just escaped me but I don't dynamite bombs.
Well you know there's lots -- opponents to a Bob Edwards but it didn't -- there's most of component there's -- timing device bears did detonating that device and in this particular case.
Admitted this stuff all night and assist -- one of the -- -- forced to -- this telephone detonating.
All that is is really the electrical charge this causes of -- that does the detonations so you call social on the ringer goes off the ringer wires attached to the -- -- and that's of Mexico off it's just really as simple as that is secure electrical electrical connections it's pure bottom here next.
No big deal it's only the -- -- to make the detonation start that electrical explosion.
Jeff thank you.
