Fourteen minutes past the hour witness now for New York State liaison -- the US Department of Homeland Security Michael -- to talk about these revelations from -- here where -- we.
Of what we're doing is we're going to a piecing what happened with the FBI did it -- -- So typically what the bureau does is -- money get a requests from overseas they don't conduct an investigation now they'll go.
Talk to the person we think -- -- a database check -- find out what's going on with person.
And then if there's nothing out there that we'll talk to somebody if they do find something suspicious and they take it to a different kind of level but they don't do is -- sit down with the person because that means that.
Probably give up your hand when looking at you so that's path that would happen in this case didn't find anything now.
My sources tell me they went back to the Russian authorities and they said -- God's forgiveness in the first place it's a darn well we didn't find anything.
What do we do now where to go forward and what I understand is they kind of went dark but still raises the question.
She missed -- on a database from the FBI's perspective.
Is that what the creation of the -- homeless he was all about it wouldn't have steel pipes of information that you have kind of a seamless system.
And that's really what it if if this had happened and there had been a tag.
And -- first -- got away for six months seems to be appear in that's common with a lot of other folks.
-- -- -- -- -- leaving for six months is is a big deal and it it gives you enough time to that we got after that initial investigation it was like maybe there was.
If there was follow we don't know about that that would.
You what we know is that there was initial interview based upon a foreign request -- until.
Navigate raised the question why did that initial -- -- -- what did they know.
But then we -- a -- -- says the radicalization happened after that interview and that's the murky part.
If you're in the FBI and you get something from Russia about a Chechen.
You're obviously thinking OK this is about Russia's ongoing and forever conflict with Chechnya.
You're not thinking this guy might be after us because we've never seen anything like this.
But the relationships you know to the legal attaches from the FBI which have -- they have all around the world.
And so it's not like suddenly you get phone call one day in the afternoon you -- -- calling right now and pay attention this -- Now they have these conversations all the time about various things telling -- we don't know what what level this came in and how much urgency this was -- severity of it.
But again we know that he went overseas and now the big question is.
What did Russia do -- also did they take a look at this -- they know who's coming in.
If we had set him up in the system and we could have alerted Russia hey look for this guy use them up they have ahead of time.
Maybe you can use of your resources to track him -- who is talking to -- is that gap of information now that's really crucial.
Deciding how this got done if nobody but these two guys knew this was going down that's possible.
But that would be very rare.
It kind of doesn't make sense is a lot of signs that that the very least if somebody else who's inspiring these guys perhaps on instructing him but I inspiring him.
And in their sophistication they did have sophistication and -- conducting this operation.
Give -- time my guests and thank you thank you.
