And -- are welcome Michael -- -- former New York State Homeland Security czar served in both the in new York state assembly and senate.
Was appointed as -- an advisor to -- president elect Obama's transition team for Homeland Security.
The actual title New York State Homeland Security director.
Who had that title earlier on we were to have -- title for how long -- I'm I wish actually get his -- -- back almost two and a half years.
What were your take on and what's your take on what's happened in Boston and then give any insight did you think.
People need to know about this.
I think of the three cases are rapidly evolving -- -- investigation.
We keep getting different pieces of information and then they begin to become apparent.
This year is that everybody every security.
Professional -- nightmare you have one of these events we're -- -- it's always been and always will be a soft target.
And yet the expectations from everyone is that we can keep everybody safe and and just unfortunately.
Demonstrates that it it's not.
Almost amazing women and more of these incidents are -- Yeah without a doubt we read it right now -- been the focus point of focal point -- securing this country but of course the threat existed before that.
-- question as to what what does this mean I would protect people and what -- shopping malls schools hospitals of course -- events.
I was involved with the secret -- during the pope's visit to New York the amount of resources.
And and frankly though a lot of luck I wouldn't believe things that he'll have events like this so -- -- this it's actually terrific it's a wake up call -- -- This contract is an -- -- you know necessarily the motivation.
We threat I don't know we don't even know where the threats -- when you think is domestic or foreign.
-- the idea.
At this at this point -- I like everybody out she tell you where completely if you shot and scored first this -- out of eight.
Middle Eastern playbook -- took.
The location being.
Visibility -- -- to shoot.
It straight shrapnel you know in this effective bit of pressure -- series before.
This -- -- in the secondary I think it is right out of playbook from the Middle East.
Patriots day tax day off America aren't incredibly localized event.
I indicated it.
If you have problems with the government -- the American people they're gonna look at a revenge thing.
But certainly inconsistencies in terms of where the -- report what they were designed to -- -- the practical my pocket to -- this or not.
This is -- low low or too low low low energy X.
-- -- the motivation in that case of it's a low vs hikes.
Suspect may be -- you know you can get -- he's here in the media -- -- -- -- four -- -- the PA TP I think the same time you know.
Why put it.
We -- it was -- -- -- white light exploded at that time not one that hit looking more people there has bigger a lot of -- you should treat treat the luck contradiction.
Awesome it's about the government taxpayer patriots day why do it we've been hurt civilians who were not part of the government.
Exactly -- this -- they get it indiscriminate.
Killing is also a hallmark of the -- Middle -- attacks but then again pimping McVeigh and an anniversary date.
And the debate takes that your government building but.
Killed lots lots of them to -- so yeah I get lots of inconsistencies.
We're not gonna figure out what the physically get the guys -- -- -- -- are an actual air -- focuses right.
Which I would Michael Maloney former New York Homeland Security -- Janet Napolitano.
Has said that.
The well actually you know I don't think she actually made a firm statement about what she thinks this is -- what you doesn't think it is we know it's a pressure cooker bomb.
Instructions for that and al-Qaeda magazine.
And that their -- of our lawmakers are concerned about a backlash on Muslims and Arabs and yesterday they.
You know they stopped for questioning -- Saudi when investigated this home took -- of Mazzone is that is that racial profiling or is that what we need to be looking.
And it all the investigation -- got to let the -- mistake to take you where picture.
I can't let any preconceived notions or an investigator or -- -- government agency -- aside what you can do you believe a look at what kind of evidence.
He got it.
Perhaps the evidence at the -- field.
So bigger challenge here is that because it happened a -- square because with the book America because.
-- was on this.
-- -- many people so much information so much video.
That's got to be gone through under right now back what they try to do about these trade not eight and he'll expect that -- -- -- of legal.
Too much and -- What do they are so artist talk about the volatile and I was grasping for what she had said it turns out which he did say was she -- believe this -- he signs here this is part of a broader plot.
Is that our sense as well.
Yeah I -- people then think do we have to worry that the treaty be you think he's going to be something that.
But to be replicated my friendship is based on history that's not the case the quality due.
They company take one hit me Catalina.
But that doesn't mean that it's that the intent and motivation.
If it is -- transactional you're gonna go away this -- obviously generational.
But like like -- -- domestic.
Paris you know what that.
-- structures would agree motivation that they have out there and he declined either to these are all really important.
Acted to try and chairman what -- -- without bear.
Either similar situation do the same thing all the -- couldn't and regarded Peter.
What are the chances we find -- -- whoever did this and the motivation she knew sooner rather than later.
Now if you -- on the other side of the coin you got to take a look at it 24 out of this -- learning of the was.
We already know what would view the kind of picture this point.
You know you've got kind of -- people -- look at -- he can't be that it well they've really come -- become an art but at the same time.
Maybe you know they knew that it had kind of committed to try -- you're -- to try to draw opposite.
Britain would be perpetuate doing it immediately and we wish so I would expect -- its point.
Is there any chance that they don't apprehend somebody -- you can -- them when the president says we're gonna get to the bottom of the planet who did -- -- -- the motivation.
Is that a sure thing.
Now we have -- a -- Rodriguez.
And he -- the FBI and two -- someone saw this happen some of those who did this.
Come forward yeah it's it fits you you -- but that's going to be the case here are this scrutiny he held here Alan is that.
We get the public he -- In this -- -- from the campaign you know -- and it is certain element -- so hard to keep -- -- PH -- the concern but if -- on the list.
Merely to help poker as a citizen her -- and actually it's the interview the -- could be a -- so -- can -- that we're really.
Pretty our it would require -- But somebody must know something -- Simmons got a videotape or somebody he.
Talk to somebody and they're always -- -- -- so you are you fairly confident they'll find out who did this.
At this point to really say I certainly hope so I know that that that is.
Yet that is the number one job on -- saying in every resources that you would expect -- being applied to this.
All right Denis of ammonium thank you so much for your time tonight.
-- -- -- -- Michael Maloney forming your state.
Homeland Security director.
With his thoughts on this addressed that our FBI friend mr.
-- -- -- -- -- it who it is no question about it.
And will finance the motivation I think it'll be sooner rather than later although.
Maloney was less certain about that.
In seem to think this is what more flexibility there in terms of what we can find out when we can find out.
And how likely we are within a short period of time so.
Divergent views on all this Janet Napolitano as I pointed out.
Did say that she doesn't think this is part of a broader plot mr.
bill -- said the same thing.
And a little later on when -- talk to one -- security expert -- higher.
Who was -- chief technology and security officer with a big firm.
And and really how worried should we be about this and how should we go about a managing our lives in light of this kind of event happening I think that's important.
Angle will cover later on look at.
