Plus the new information in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation we're learning more about the three friends the suspected terrorist yellow cards are and I have.
Who police say -- -- -- -- added is to protect him what event is charged with lying to investigators the other two pictured here with the younger brother.
And that's you know car in Times Square are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice.
-- -- where Weber served as a senior counselor to former secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff pretty serious charges when he make of those.
Well it's disturbing especially in light of all the press attention in the photos that were released -- then these three.
Students realize very quickly that their friend is one of the primary suspects.
Instead of reaching out the authorities what do they do they reach out to their friend and then ultimately it appears that they helped destroy evidence or tried to.
The -- that seems have emerged maybe in part from the defense lawyers for these young and -- that these are just young guys.
Picking when they see a friend of theirs on TV and they just acted to protect their friends would he think about and -- well.
Actually no one of the lawyers Bob Stahl -- him for twenty plus years -- work the same federal judge together over two decades ago Paris to say about.
-- very capable lawyer he's got a tough job ahead of him it appears to be more than just some young innocent students.
Who didn't know what they were doing there appear from the complaint.
To be very calculated actions by these three young men.
To try and destroy the evidence and help their friend because they were afraid he was going to get in trouble -- -- be crucial to knowing whether or not they were involved before the event.
Welcome to the extent that they're going to talk any more to the -- there were my understanding has some interviews before hand.
On the immigration issues I don't know if they're gonna clam up now -- maybe in the context of working out a plea deal.
But I think that the circle of influence.
For Joseph Carr who else he hung out with who else he associated with will be very important to learn about do you think there's going to be more arrests.
You know it's pure speculation what -- -- it's sort of jumped out at me when you read the criminal complaint is that sir and I his roommate was in the room when the three young men came in to collect the backpack in the gasoline.
I'm wondering where he stands in all of this there's still did that a female DNA that the government is working on.
There's the older brother's wife so I I don't think the stories done yet.
Based on your experience in the Department of Homeland Security one of the questions that comes up about these two young men did that she middle one in the picture that our viewers -- seeing on the screen there.
It's how they were able to come back in the country if there visas were expired.
As recently renewed passport it wasn't an easy thing to do you and I and I'm a citizen and I imagine that if it was wrong I would be able to leave -- treatment so.
How how does that happen that it's expired and they're allowed and.
Agenda we've talked before that the other so much data that exists -- the government has to sift through all that data they should have been a little bit -- the easier one.
If the visa was expired which apparently it was when one of the defendants came back into the country in January 20 and expired visa.
CBP should have never let him in so there's clearly some -- -- -- the governments to go down to find out why that happened.
Think the Department of Homeland Security -- mother agencies.
Have just grown too big I was looking at statistics after nine elevenths -- went from not having an agency for the Department of Homeland Security.
Now having nearly 200000.
Employees and those numbers obviously haven't.
In this case particularly shown to be more effective although to -- points sometimes these things happen and that's part of reality that.
The problem -- is is government is slow to move to change.
And and I keep hammering on this but it's really important data data data technology technology technology look at -- do with how the underwear bomber we couldn't connect the dots then.
Clearly there are some dots weren't connected here.
Both before the bombing with the FaceBook page of the older brother.
And then after the bombing with there -- some FaceBook activity between these three boys and annual car as walls attacks -- that was going on the government needs to be more proactive.
And how it takes a look at data and leverages off of what's open source open source is very very important and we're not using as much as we shut it.
It's out there and -- clients Manning it's it's there.
If they're frat sorry it's got great to have you -- -- thank you John.
