It's time to bring in Wally Ferris you know him from this channel he is a Middle Eastern expert Chad good morning to long.
Good morning and -- -- -- you hard to believe the events have unfolded in the last to twelve hours if you've been up and watching -- just recapping this morning your initial thoughts.
Well I think that now we have moved from the level of just a team that.
Support for an operation that was -- to if I -- team.
Now if we couple that with the fact.
Is that they have a Chechen background or any of the background that have international connections we are -- at this point in time with the possibility.
Of international terrorism that moves.
The file from homegrown.
And international level.
So what do you make of the fact that new reports now fox reporting that these two Brothers had been in the United States of America for several years now.
As your expertise would tell you would they come here initially.
At such a young -- To be terrorists.
Or is -- something that they decide to do once they're here.
What's not then we'll decide if they have been indoctrinated as they have been radicalize it and been recruited.
-- are moving -- that sound of that network that trend -- I mean what we see when I was -- -- on the screen these are.
The fighters these are terrorists fighters and a half without urban fighters have been able to create those -- have been able to fight against the law enforcement -- police man.
And that is one on the run we've spoken about -- fighting units so.
When that happened we don't know most likely they have gotten the indoctrination first.
Came to the United States.
Planned that activity.
And then decided or somebody decided for them to engage in that activity this is not just to individuals who made that decision that part of a network.
You know can I ask you -- let him to have to be very careful and very clear about this -- watching the Twitter feeds and PR news is reporting that third man has been arrested now.
If that is true.
If that's sure nice to emphasize that this has been a lot of misinformation going back and forth but if that's true.
Take us how how how big can speak and -- spread to more than just the third maybe fourth fifth or more how big is this cell likely.
Think what what I need basically is to understand really if the nationality has been -- that would that would kind of fluff stuff because.
The Chechen Jihad network is very expensive they have a huge network inside Russia and Chechnya.
But they have been involved and other battlefields they have gone to Afghanistan our government has reports.
Got the statement -- in congress about Jihad Chechen.
Trained in Afghanistan they were found in Pakistan.
And in many other countries and we know with that Chechen Jihad have traveled to the United States back and forth so if that is the case.
Then it will be most likely that those two individuals.
Have logistical support had even tactical support within the United States because the one who is -- lose right now.
He was fleeing fleeing to where to leave the country -- -- -- some hideouts within the United States.
What do you believe from what you know and knowing that there in the area they know about surveillance camera -- here for at least a year they have to know the level of security in the major cities.
The fact is when those pictures went up that was there -- -- for a second wave does it look to -- the earmarks of -- second wave.
Look we don't know it all depends on what what the initial mission the initial mission was to strike in Boston and as someone has meant nothing Jennifer has mention.
The fact that they did not act that's suicide bombers although tensions have done suicide bombing in the past.
It means that day where.
To do a second wife or to join another team for a second wave that's the tactic if you don't kid yourself in his suicide bombing mission -- -- that you have.
Another mission now the way that they would train for Bobby and fighting means to me that there are part of a fighting -- and therefore they could be a support.
I don't think that the support will now try to save them because they don't want -- -- cover themselves.
It's that I just amazing to me that Chechnya -- who love to fight ended in that area.
And I understand that they teamed up with the Taliban and teamed -- with al-Qaeda in different scenarios but they would actually come over here.
And try to perpetrate this if the if they indeed are -- and being that -- forty have a dirty on Russia's hit list.
What will -- -- -- the public is that nationality is irrelevant at this point in time once we know that they are jihadist.
Meaning al-Qaeda and I am using now the Tom -- because Chechen -- this target band upset by both Pakistan.
Are connected to al-Qaeda Al qaeda's new strategy as we lead and inspire magazine has read on line in in the chat rooms.
Pick and choose which kind of nationality that can fit with the man with a country -- -- to send them to.
So the fact that these person could be from India from Syria from Chechnya.
Or American born is irrelevant at this point in time it is that what is relevant is they jihadist who they have a connection international.
All right -- Walid Ferris.
Interesting insight from somebody who knows expert -- if you would please stick around we're gonna.
