-- -- reaction to the developing story from the House Intelligence Committee we have New York congressman Peter King along with the chairman of the house homeland security committee.
Texas congressman Michael calls -- us congressman McCall begin with you it's hard for -- wrap my arms and compartmentalize.
This although many seemed to be and that is that we have the Boston terror attack on Monday we have the rice and it.
First attack on Tuesday and then another one sent to the president may be others on Wednesday.
I find it's hard for me to separate them.
Well it's similar in my judgment is the anthrax attacks after 9/11.
Which it turned out so no correlation whatsoever.
I think the evidence in the briefings I've had -- show that there really is no connection.
Between these two however this is a very serious matter.
Sending rice and to members of congress.
And after 9/11 when you establish an outside.
Tell where this can be confiscated.
And it did it works and it's protect our members of congress but the capital is on a high state of alert right now congressman king is sound like an odd coincidence too sir.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- These dogs who unrelated events and it does you remind me back to work 2000 -- Well we had the 9/11 attacks that shortly after that we had the anthrax arriving on Capitol Hill and again I think he's.
Campus facilities if you will which stopped the smell protect not just members of congress -- senators.
What staff members are member Tom Daschle's staff.
There are people still sick from the injuries that they occurred when they inhaling anthrax so it's working and I I don't they did it just -- and drive I've not seen any evidence for -- -- -- congressman -- back to and then back to the terror attack in in Boston you -- one of the early voices today.
That what warning people that fact is that the crazy back and forth in the media -- we have a suspect is on the way to the courthouse all of that that was going on you're saying no hold on a second.
How do you interpret what is going on right now and that is the canceled for example briefings by the FBI.
And now of course law enforcement -- been distributed the the pictures of these two individuals your thoughts but you know.
You know we don't really know why they -- that -- know -- course CNN got a little ahead of themselves.
With some you know when I talked to the FBI they told me you we do not have a suspect in custody or -- -- I -- -- that it happened that.
Well I think with a couple things going on John.
I do think that with the surveillance cameras at Lord & Taylor.
With the it photos they've obtained from individuals.
On the street I do think they have.
Photographs of the suspects.
That's a small idea and might might -- and I think at some point that's going to be.
Police in public there's another theory that they do have somebody -- That's now cooperating.
And that that's why they delayed this a press coverage that -- quite honestly we do we don't know the answer to that and it would be.
-- irresponsible for me to go further and congressman.
And let me go to you they are distributing pictures of two men to law enforcement has not been released to the media.
As we confirmed at the top of the show with -- very own Bill Hemmer we'll check it -- Rick Leventhal and amenity.
Both have seen the photos.
And both are describing.
What I have seen myself and has been described to me by by my contacts.
What are we to make of of that does that give us hope that perhaps are getting closer to finding the people responsible for this terrorism.
-- I have very great faith in the FBI the -- of police the FBI is really on this.
I have no doubt that it's very much sooner rather than later but they are gonna resolve this fails as evidence -- had to -- -- brought.
Also I don't blame them I -- I don't know exactly why they -- Pulled back in the news conference primary back in 2010 with the Times Square bomber.
And there's a lack of operational security people in the administration is -- the leaking out information.
As to who the that target was.
And that's when he found out there was Shahzad that he found -- he's being targeted and -- -- for the airport and so when he didn't and until we heard from the media.
What the administration was leaking out.
He had nor did he was as far as I don't want it to these guys -- off if we do they -- Don't ship them off and you also again maybe to be followed -- -- and the others involved I leave the FBI the benefit of the doubt here.
-- -- you didn't say that we should merchants selling ball bearings beauty products should notify the police that that didn't sound like you -- read the you've said that today did you are actually -- that's what Ray Kelly is that the author who is given a list of products well not oriented product we're -- -- -- ball bearings BB guns pressure -- is that sharks are not sure I think he's set I didn't.
-- shot I don't know which I did say -- these products abort and large amounts for certain people.
Ray Kelly wants that reportedly have -- -- products -- what what do.
Gonna be used to -- the subways in New York in 2000 I -- their products that can be used for bombs if the border into certain amounts by certain people.
