Bring into experts now on these kind of threats how we deal with them how we investigate the bill -- tomorrow -- a former FBI -- and Harry -- Retired NYPD.
Detective gentlemen good to see you I'm sorry it's not in.
-- his circumstances billed to you first.
We don't know is the president said.
Who we don't know why we getting some clear indication of how it looks like of these war.
Packed possibly would ball bearings and other shrapnel -- to calls maximum damage.
And possibly remotely detonated so there's.
This seems to be a mix of sophistication.
And rudimentary bomb making going on -- what does that tell us if anything.
-- -- Fortunately when these things at this point you know I don't know what it really tells us is that you know we found it here whether it's terrorist organizations have actually use them.
Very rudimentary components and building devices we had -- Oceanside and who tried to global car here at Times Square.
It actually Jerry -- some equipment that he was able cobbled together from visiting.
You know home improvement stores and hardware stores and what have you.
And we've seen you know attacks like down at the millennium park before the Olympics in Atlanta.
Where Eric Rudolph -- have put together a backpack with similar with nails that -- used as -- material inside of of that device so.
At this point I don't think it really tells us an abundance of information however you said as you said before is that the forensics behind this behind.
What went into these devices.
As well as the landscape of what closed circuit camera media coverage was before with these incidents took place be able to -- -- piece together who is in around -- area.
Maybe some of the initial.
Factual or at least evidentiary things -- gathered by the FBI and other authorities and.
Harry did that's I was talking them in the the noise that our viewers may have -- was my phone within a news -- hit.
The AP quoting somebody's been briefed on the probe the Boston explosives.
-- made of pressure cookers with -- -- shrapnel -- bearings in them.
Yeah I mean whoever did this as dye designed to cause maximum damage.
To people these were not the kind of bombs that we're gonna build -- bring down buildings not of that.
Level but designed calls maximum damage when you when you're trying to shoot ball bearings that crossed.
With the explosives right if you gonna -- shrapnel.
When there you know you hit the main thing you wanted to do is you want to create fear in you want a lot of injuries and it looks like we had the majority injuries were in the lower part of the bodies.
When you're very close to the explosion I was watching videotape -- earlier the first explosion that occurred and you can see that.
The people who were on the street approaching.
The finish line one really.
Hit with the forces it was just the people that we're pretty close to the bomb itself.
So that pretty much tells me that that bomb wasn't quite what they thought it was going to be.
All right buddy who were very close to what we created some really bad and.
Bill -- huge.
Amount of evidence for the FBI to GAAP.
Not least of which should not least important of which will be all the photos and videos and one in my engines they're -- Thousands.
Of those from everybody with -- every anyone of these devices filming it's a trip.
The end so there's -- treasure trove of information -- that but a heck of a lot to go through as well.
It's a couple others can imagine him in a case like this he gets into really.
You managing a project -- into really some of the organizational elements -- -- Harry is well aware be able to pull together leads from.
You know people calling in these these tip line so what the police and -- -- gathering to what.
Forensic evidence that finding what sources are telling him be of the -- -- that could bring it up to where.
People can make some decisions and prioritize.
Avenues of investigation and you know it's it's interesting just ripped through that that.
But they've apparently or allegedly found that this may have to keep pressure -- is it reminds me of the case here in New York.
We we have some Croatian separatists who actually planted a somewhat type device in a locker over Grand Central.
It was service diffuse this -- -- -- you want them lose this diffuse and of course we've heard a and what PD bomb expert and time does does that 1970 sinister figures that as we talking before that some of these things are rudimentary.
But there is -- and it doesn't mean that you know somebody need to bring in some type of you know a weapon from a militarized front someplace but it could be some -- they've created here that people were able to purchase without.
Going for this trip wires that we heard anything but talk about what we -- back to buying large amounts of fertilizer from the Oklahoma City bombing -- -- trip poison to be able to signal.
If people were -- that type of material same thing was used -- -- of the World Trade Center so.
It doesn't mean that rules out that it could be something more sophisticated but it -- as well be a single.
Actor apparently that the point here is again we don't know could be a lone wolf could be terrorist organization could be domestic could be -- at this stage.
But bill's point is very well taken that that even -- sophisticated organization.
If they were behind this might tune to these sort of simpler device is simply not.
To -- the authority.
-- that that definitely might be one of the things that you look at it you know.
I personally believe that.
That we're probably looking at a small cell and here in Boston area and if the article was in the post earlier this -- that's correct.
The one guy that was allegedly apprehended.
By civilians after the first problem -- yeah.
We had made a comment that.
It was supposed to be -- second bomb went off and if that turns out to be true.
As reported in the post than we we have a real bit suspect there in the -- there's somebody else involved.
Because he was waiting for the second mom apparently -- didn't hear it go off because the bomb went off to him and he's in the hospital right now -- he's under guard.
