Instigation what is Russia.
Not telling us to the Russians know more about the accused bomber attack ambulance and I have and his family then they -- letting not.
The weekly standard Steve Hayes joins us Steve -- by the -- fully cooperating.
I think the answer is no.
Disease -- has been -- since the beginning of this bombing.
Among them that dozens of interviews -- I've done over the past week and one of the sort recurring theme to those interviews is that the Russians have not been offering as much as.
They ought to as much as we think that they know and when we go to them and say.
He gave us this information initially what more can you tell us now they've basically responded with either silence were sort of -- shrugs the shrug of the shoulders.
I the FBI were very effective and finally tracked down and and getting them the two bombers but.
That along the way they -- -- months before they got to tip by the Russians to look at them.
Have -- FBI been forthcoming as far as we know China's really how much they knew.
About about these -- it's hard to say I mean.
Initially remembered in the early hours of this investigation the FB I was telling some reporters not all but some reporters.
We don't have any idea who this is this is something that's not familiar to us and of course later turned out.
That they had been tracking cameras and -- been done interviews with them they followed him they've been apparently paying attention to his mother so they hadn't been forthcoming.
At that point forthcoming because.
They were trying to be slippery kgo forthcoming because if that was somehow hooked up a national security issues in this hour.
None of the media's business as they try to sort it out probably know.
Don't know we don't know we don't know the answer that question we need early reports and and they were -- different thanks in -- in those first 34 hours they were telling some reporters.
This -- been on our radar they -- -- -- reporters we have no idea who this.
I have it in read your article -- -- -- interest in town is that depth that the Russians went the FBI.
The FBI didn't do anything this -- we don't have if they do so than the Russians apparently out of desperation to -- and go to the CIA and the CIA then puts it on a list puts him on a watch list of titlist.
And then the -- -- is supposed to -- track them going out of the country coming back in.
That didn't happen and then of some conflict because.
No pun -- the Homeland Security secretary of -- house of their pain going out but the FBI but the CIA says they were not.
Right and and what's been fascinating in reporting this story -- you ask people who I think ought to be in position to deliver sort of straight.
Comprehensive answers about this and they can't she say to people what happens when the system -- to -- -- -- a -- -- praise.
And they can't give you an answer and this is true whether it's in an oversight capacity whether it's somebody who's.
In the that the process somebody who would be -- but what seems clear at this point is that the FBI I was not.
Included in the this broad message that talked about ten concert -- -- sending off signals the fact that he was leaving the country the fact that he was coming -- the coming back the country.
The -- was not on those paintings and of course the FBI as one who received the initial -- Did the investigation.
Would have been the ones presumably who would want to hear from most about.
I'd like to see the investigation -- efforts to sort of the low man told Paul gets sent out as not to have given a contract on some people who and that you know -- thank you how -- initial investigation team but I still look at that in the days and weeks to come as we pound -- I.
-- -- -- I -- I think there's like going to be a lot of focus on that the ping -- Jana -- -- called it.
Going to a single.
Borer patrol official.
Who was -- part of the GAT TF up in Boston who was then responsible for disseminating the information.
Throughout the GAT TF this joint terrorism task force end.
-- and that person didn't do that but I'm told that that person received some 2300.
In that eight hour shift in which the initial.
Patent case if that's the case I think we have to really take a look back to today's setback to look back at the system -- effects of that and I Steve thank you thank steady.
