Does not help break down the investigation retired FBI special agent hostage negotiator Christopher vause.
He is also a terrorism expert and CEO of the business advisory firm Black Swan group -- -- thanks for being with us right the timing is obviously very.
Because three weeks go by and now suddenly.
They're easy criminal investigation.
Simultaneous with the rest of the paramedic.
We make of this.
Well first of well as an investigator the first thing is there's no such thing as a coincidence you don't believe in coincidences.
And so you've ruled everything else out.
So good points and only coincidental nature of this and it's -- -- appear.
I like it doesn't make sense.
Now -- the question is how do they find out that mr.
Reid is in possession of the pipe bomb and why were they looking in the first place.
They would've had enough time to take a look at the scene of the blast to tried to isolate the origin of the explosion.
When they isolate the -- they're they're going to begin to look for.
What is it that sparked that what was the initiating device if there wasn't initiating device.
That started this off so they've probably found something which caused him to begin to look around to see where the initiator came from.
The new museum money and nitrate that caused the enormous explosion in deaths.
But they still don't know the original cause of the fire and then the blast that was the trigger of that.
-- -- -- Given the footprint of damage and destruction and so forth -- it just seems impossible to me.
That they could find any Trace evidence of the clause.
Well one of the things about ammonium nitrate explosions as they tend to be it's a slower moving explosion.
Which means a lot of things remained in intact or not they're not shattered with the explosion they're torn apart there's -- -- a wide area.
But they're largely intact and there's a lot of good evidence left behind.
So there would be a lot to find regardless of the size of the explosion.
The last inspection of this particular plant was almost thirty years ago by -- they found two very serious violations.
Thirty years three decades was the last OSHA inspection.
And how can that be Chris for.
Well that makes you wonder as well but it is difficult for -- cast any sort of aspersions on because.
Either they could have been very sloppy the plan -- that they could have taken safety very seriously.
And been doing a much better job of of keeping it a safer place so the only thing you know is -- that's a really long time you don't know what to make of that.
And there -- 700.
Of these fertilizer -- depots.
In the state of Texas which was the site by the way Texas City back in 1947.
Of the worst explosion.
600 people died in that what I mean given that track record.
Where you think -- should be all of this place but Christopher -- -- we'll wait and see what happens thanks for being with us.
My -- Greg thank river are.
