Fox News contribute Alan good to see you.
Thank you so much what I think -- -- -- interest being.
I'm -- Patriot Act Patriot Act that's right.
So what happened of course is that we know that they were able to find these alleged.
Terrorists it very very quickly and that is because they had also some law enforcement working together.
Now this would not have happened without the Patriot Act I personally was against the Patriot Act I just want to say that however.
The coordination that was in the Patriot Act allowed this to happen and -- been in the news media on this.
Dead -- Quietly did explain to me how the Patriot Act.
Helped exactly and can't capturing and I capturing one of these guys -- yeah 'cause it provides for coordination between agencies.
And information sharing and the ability to pull information.
From one agency to another agency in the databases that's why although doesn't appear -- that they weren't able to do this on their own in the Indian law.
What broke the case open was making those pictures.
The still images and other video out all the -- yes but then one state got.
Even an inkling as to who this was they were able to figure out the Russian connection and all of that.
That was because the coordination of those agencies as you know it.
Happened after 9/11 Patriot Act was passed very shortly afterwards again many parisians I don't particularly like.
But I have to say.
That the part of it that was able to allow this coordination between agencies news media totally ignored I have to call this -- -- -- so I knew you were against the Patriot Act before you before it.
Well I'm still -- four but.
But that 1 area I am for you know not every bill has a lot of different parts of and you point your point being -- did that did the media should be giving me.
-- of the Patriot Act more credit now full the pretty swift capture and killing exactly and the coordination of information absolutely.
In an out that could've been done on another act that wasn't perhaps -- -- sweeping but what I'm saying is.
Is give credit where credit is due.
Don't pretend that something doesn't exist just because you don't like it.
So that's not being a journalist right that didn't and we're doing just I wouldn't mind getting your views -- because you're always have an interesting view on this on.
Criminal -- -- old colts system verses.
And become combatant -- you happy with the the fact that we going down the court -- with this.
I'm very happy we're going to add down that court rock as you may or may not -- my brother Michael is that considered.
A lawyer more on the left and he in the -- Center for Constitutional Rights have been very.
Vocal about the -- an enemy combatant issue.
But I happen to agree with that I think that look this -- an American citizen may -- mission I'm glad I'm becoming Americans is and I guess what.
It's an American citizen I have enough evidence most likely -- mean I'm not trying the guy.
He's still innocent until proven guilty is center.
But they have -- lot of evidence against this guy I've -- aren't.
