Hello I'm Gregg Jarrett.
In Boston a lot of activity today as a follow up to the Boston bomb mean in the marathon a week ago.
There are great many tributes today there are few rules today.
And of course the younger suspect who is in serious condition at Beth Israel hospital in Boston.
Unable to speak so far but there's some.
Question as to whether or not he -- been otherwise able to communicate.
With the FBI interrogation team there.
The other question surrounding the FBI is did they miss warning signs -- berg joins us now senior political editor of foxnews.com.
And -- judged as so much is -- said over the last several days since the good news broke.
That it was the Russian government that tipped off the FBI in.
That they had concerns that the older brother.
Might have jihadist.
Connections or leanings politically.
What do we know about that.
Right or if you look at the FBI statement there -- it's certainly instinct had been -- -- provided in that.
They don't say it was the Russian government presumably was the Russian government.
On -- at the time they said you know the allegation is that he's suspected of -- signing on to an Islamic radical ideology.
And is suspected of trying to go back overseas she didn't link up with underground I think they call them underground groups com.
For whatever reason the FBI and in and interviewing him and -- looking into his background at the time.
Did not find a reason for concern -- we still don't know a lot about it.
But there's also another side to this whereas you know beyond what the FBI was looking -- with these two Brothers.
The intelligence community it was probably starting to pick up some signals come from that region in general from the Chechnya resistance from a region from -- -- doctor Stan.
There were groups.
Forming in and operating in that area with aspirations to.
Nations and and and communities beyond Russia's border.
And I think that's another aspect of this that's going to be coming out now is these groups in Chechnya and understand.
You know what what is their goal if -- if in fact there's any connection between.
These suspects and the troops over there.
He's dirty word as to whether or not the FBI.
Beyond just speaking with the older brother at some point in time.
Did they actually look at any electronic communications which are good arguably they could have done under the Patriot Act.
For example we now know there is a YouTube page.
The older brother had established in which there was some jihadist videos in the doors to create a playlist of songs urging Jihad in -- -- on that.
Was Catherine Herridge is reported there they're going over electronic community.
Communications now are trying to find out who these Brothers were communicating -- it's no I think the YouTube videos you mention.
I believe we're we're put up and 2012 -- -- it might have been.
After this individual would kind of phone off the FBI's radar screen.
-- which is something that some Republican lawmakers now are are asking about.
He was initially looked into in 2011.
Went to Russia and perhaps other region in Russia in 2012.
Came back -- YouTube links are going up and it's unclear what the FBI was doing.
-- thanks very much.
