Our police in Boston say they never knew a stunning revolution before the house homeland security committee.
When Boston's police chief says they did not know what the FBI knew.
About bombing suspect.
Camera lanes or nine.
Before the bombing were you aware of the Russian intelligence warning regarding to -- on.
And the fact that he may travel overseas.
To meet with extremists.
We we have.
Three three detectives and a sergeant poor start to the joint terrorism task force.
One one of my detectives is actually in the squad.
That investigated that.
We have access to all the do the databases.
What we were not in fact informed of that particular develop.
That was the first headline from yesterday -- -- congressman Peter King sits on the house homeland security committee chairs the subcommittee.
On counterterrorism and intelligence or good morning to you take his statement version then I'll get reaction from the FBI what did you make of that.
It just to be showed -- terrible breakdown in cooperation between the FBI and the local police.
How could the FBI.
And even thought of doing a full investigation of the older brother without -- a local police -- -- the cop on the beat.
There's a local police that have been a much more knowledge they know what's going on and at the FBI is truly a partnership.
When local police -- asked to share information like this and unfortunately this happens New York as well as abortion.
Well I I think the country was kind of impressed the way the FBI and the police were together during the week.
And that was one side of the story the other self -- -- about -- hang on the FBI came back and said there Davis.
The police commissioner in Boston.
Had specifically assigned to -- -- Officers that probes are -- -- -- in 2011.
So it's -- he said he said.
Well -- I am terribly inclined to believe the police -- abortions I can tell you even after the bombing itself.
Between Monday afternoon and the the shoot out of Friday morning.
The FBI still haven't told abortion police about the older brother so -- right up until we have after the shoot out and after.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- The what FBI still -- -- -- The -- to please what was happening I think mr.
Davis handled himself extremely well yesterday and all questions.
He was willing to -- there the FBI still hasn't met with the homeland security committee so you have issues with the FBI.
That's what I hear.
On this -- certainly -- also -- the fact that they never told the York city that the Bob is intended to go to Times Square they never told now that's inexcusable.
Now you have told us that that communication is absolutely essential if you want to stop further attacks.
-- your twelve years removed from from September 11 but how do you rectify this how do you fix it.
I think it's it.
It involves changing culture was the overwhelming majority -- FBI agents are to -- job.
It is a certain level in the FBI don't want support information keep it to themselves and maybe it's also the Department of Justice guidelines have to -- changed.
And that was so protective and so concerned.
The somebody's feelings may be hurt.
That the FBI feels they can share this information for instance the FBI -- doing its investigation.
Of the older brother and to find out if he was radicalized or not.
Never went to the mosque.
Never once -- came up.
Who would know better if you go local police or people the mosque but have the best idea of whether or not -- become radicalized and the FBI had talked either want.
Now will we we need to do something about this.
You heard senator Lieberman you talk about a serious and aggravating a mission.
I mean he his words were directed to with the FBI.
How do you get answers.
We have to insist on that right now.
-- the FBI has not even come up to brief.
The homeland security committee on this issue they refuse to do -- so.
To me this has to be.
They have -- be held accountable if they really go out listen not that even to point fingers but we're gonna have these the type of -- we're gonna have over the next several years but I couldn't watch -- attack from outside the country.
They're going to be people from within the community and that's gonna require a joint effort by the FBI with all -- talents and abilities and the local police who have the contacts who know what's going on in the communities in the neighborhoods.
Working together we can stop this to -- -- information keep sort of -- it's just gonna invite another -- -- marathons bombing.
-- strong -- -- Peter King this morning directed straight at the FBI.
Sir we'll see where this goes -- we'll see when you get your answers Peter King thanks --
