Right about fourteen minutes past the hour now want to go back to the story in Boston because two years ago apparently rusher raised a red flag on the older brother camera.
Asking the US to interview him in the FBI apparently did just that but -- cleared him.
Now there -- lawmakers saying that the FBI dropped the ball here is that the case are with me in studio.
House speaker John Boehner on this topic and many others feel a lot to go through how you do as a speaker anymore and don't.
Welcome back to New York City it's always good to see you in this town but -- -- you thank you -- to be back in New York as well terrific work by the FBI and the police.
Especially in the past five days of last week.
That being said based on what we're learning right now did they drop the ball.
Earlier on this case in 20122001.
I think it's way too early to make that determination.
Talked to a director of Mueller yesterday they're pulling -- all of their information the other facts the other.
Amigos but got members of congress and the American people.
Interest in what the answers were.
Will get those answers soon enough Mike Rogers yesterday said the FBI it was very prudent and very thorough.
And place no blame on the agency anything that happened over a year two years or three years prior to that do we know that to be the case.
We I don't I don't know that to be the case at this point.
Public the FBI is gonna have their opportunity to -- all of this information out of before the American people and then we can judge.
About what let's go back -- last week was rough -- for that to the American people clearly rough week for the people Boston.
Our law enforcement of officials both -- local police the state police the FBI and I would counter terrorism officials.
I think it did a marvelous job on behalf of our country.
-- -- -- But we -- was for the people of Boston may the American people watch in this.
Was also clearly another American moment reminded that terrorism.
Is something there -- a -- for a long long time to come.
And secondly when.
These events happened America.
And end in strengthens our country.
I think we saw that an action involves some.
And I would agree review based on watching -- firsthand.
Lindsey Graham says we need to up our game you know we're still at war and now there's a big debate on spending right now.
I mean is this to time it does it take to cut Homeland Security spending or.
To go after that budget or what is your view on that because -- you know for two years now you've been talking about -- In deficit spend.
And in this sense it all ties back together.
What's driving -- off our spending and drive in our debt.
The fact that there are 101000 baby boomers like me retiring every day.
70000 this week three and a half million this year.
-- Social Security Medicare there's no money there are those funds solvent -- people are living longer accessing Medicaid so the real drivers of the debt.
Well primarily our our big entitlement programs that won't survive.
In their current form mostly made some changes.
So it's got.
It has really nothing to do with what we -- the discretionary spending but -- -- -- us -- we have less security spending is not touch what.
Listen we have to sequester bigger as the president won't get serious.
About solving our big spending problem.
And he insisted on the sequestered.
They may have an impact but I don't believe.
That is going to affect.
Or affect who have the ability.
To protect the American people what about the immigration debate there's a lot of talk right now that this and sideline that movement in the house or in the senator in congress in general.
Willett well it may for a couple of days and nobody understand -- What didn't.
Our immigration system.
No what -- and they know what impact would have this have one -- but primarily I'm in the camp both.
If we fix our immigration system.
It may actually help us understand who walls here why they're here and what legal status for -- -- back to the defendant who apparently is recovering in a Boston hospital.
An American Citizen -- citizenship on September 11 of last year 9/11.
Should -- be an enemy combatant.
Where should -- be tried in the court system.
Well I think is important issue here is is to give us much information as we can from them.
A lot of things -- we've learned over the last fifteen years is that is that.
We can learn a lot from the movie individuals the information they have -- them.
There -- cell phones there's a treasure trove of information.
In the key here is immediately get to it and so whether you want to call him and enemy combatant to work you want to use this public safety.
The key is getting the information.
To protect the American people to learn whether others were involved.
But to learn more about how he got involved -- to that -- is are you OK with him not being read his Miranda rights I -- by just point I think is perfectly fine.
-- only matters in under one exception you can always Moran does.
That this individual but the important thing is to get the information now Peter King.
Is hot on the trail of at least five cases that he appears.
To talk about quite often with the FBI know knew of a a known terrorist and did not take action.
Before they tried to carry out your home now we're gonna talk to him next hour and we're gonna pick up this topic with him but.
Know what when you think about the cases that he's chronicled this is he right now.
While missiles were arriving to committees of congress Peterson's on homeland security committee value of the Judiciary Committee -- the intelligence committee.

Whether the FBI drop the ball or didn't drop the ball.
