There are some new developments to tell you about in the Boston Marathon terror attack investigation.
Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano testifying today about the FBI's efforts to identify those responsible.
She answered questions about the surveillance video that captured the scene of the moment.
There is some video that.
The question of those that we the FBI would like to speak with wouldn't characterize them as suspects under the technical term.
But we need the public's help in locating these individuals.
Jonathan Gilliam is a former FBI special agent with the joint terrorism task force also former navy seal and a federal air Marshal.
You know although the law enforcement circulated pictures of these people that want to talk to supposedly internally.
And then -- and then these pictures end up on the pages of front pages -- of major newspapers is that a good thing is that helpful.
Depends on who's who leaked it and if it was purposely.
I'm not real clear why some of these leagues -- get out.
It it again when I was talking yesterday about the the way the bureau does investigations.
They have a plan -- they have a methodology.
So you can't really try to second guess what investigators are doing.
And that's why try to you when I see something like this instead of thinking the worst is those leaks.
I tried to hope for the best.
So when you know we've we've got I mean a possibility that that that these guys that they at least want to talk to they are persons of interest it at least.
Have a possibility that they got a high tail it to Mexico or Venezuela or -- some other place right there and -- the best we can hope for is that law enforcement is gonna catch up with them before.
They have a chance to make a -- right and again.
Begin this atmosphere of leaks.
In law enforcement over the past several years as things become increasingly.
More tense in some these different investigations.
I know some of them.
Are not authorized and I just understand where the loyalty isn't some of these -- -- officers but.
Again I have to you hope for the best you save the battery is going to be very crucial to this investigation one.
That is not a normal battery.
That is something that comes normally in a toy.
Or some kind of remote control.
Vehicle or airplane or something of that sort so you can't run out and buy a whole pack of these its energies I think their -- not not typically and it looks as though this -- might have been actually placed with here again I'm not privy to -- -- that -- was in November when opposite bureau.
But it -- it looks as though it may have been attached are ready to circuit board or that the of the wires may have come pre -- -- not real sure about that but.
These types of batteries you get in them hobby stores or they come in -- in -- toward.
You say that you know I mean some people who have looked at what happened there and set all you know.
It's it's it's it's a scene that you couldn't protect it you say there are things that could have been done.
Absolutely -- Again I don't second guess or place any blame but.
As -- our conventional warfare.
Expert and haven't ran special events in the bureau for many many years one thing that we that we tend to look at her should be looked at.
Is these critical areas in the critical times.
That is definitely -- critical area the finish line have a I have a marathon.
Is where you're gonna have their highest concentration of people that in the very beginning so for that area not to be -- down to me.
Is you're just opening yourself up to a potential.
Yeah I'm sure those are things are going to be looking at a picture of the Boston Marathon in years forward right Jonathan -- -- thank you thank you very much.
