You thank you.
The man accused of attempting to blow up in New York Federal Reserve Bank are rain last -- prosecutors revealing that the suspect entered the country.
On -- didn't -- -- in January of this year let's bring bill Daley and is a former FBI investigator himself in a senior vice president at control risks.
What targeting by building a threat percent of our economy of course which should brings back horrible -- in the city but your your thoughts and how the FBI handled this -- what we learn from.
What he was in a very well.
I think you know goes to show you is that terrorists and the degree -- was influenced by Al cater you know have the US and New York City -- cross hairs.
Certainly symbolically of Federal Reserve.
I mean debit impeding actual movement of currency probably not but as far as an impact into our psyche and and an economic impact certainly there.
And it probably suggest you is that you know we've now seen about fifteen or so of these kind of undercover sting operations.
Underway here in particularly around the that the northeast and New York area.
I think it goes to show you is that these people out there -- good intentions are.
Continuing and I don't expected to stop any time soon.
But it begs the question -- this -- individual came into the country under state visit how many of them are they're out there.
Is this is the FBI is the joint terrorism task force lucky and many aspects and should we be worried about this kind of terrorist about.
-- we certainly should be worried about that this is really what everyone talks about that kind of lone wolf syndrome you know where that individual who.
If he if he didn't come across the authorities would you be concerned -- we did come across and we befriended.
But when he does -- across them because.
It indicates that there are many others like this out there and they'll continue to be out there -- -- very difficult to get a beat on because they're not the ones who we know went to training camps of people who are sending.
You know transmissions to al-Qaeda operatives were other.
Other -- -- to the al-Qaeda overseas so they're running that global below the radar but in this case he apparently.
Was pulling out their.
Was picked up by an informant to then turned -- onto the FBI they picked up on his profile on.
It's an intimate social media sites and -- that he was interested in.
Becoming a friend with people with a like minded -- as he was.
-- -- -- areas obvious I think you're sort of however that that exactly what are within which areas do you think we still need to improve been a lot of great work has been done.
In this city just in particular since 9/11 I think the goes without saying but -- it's worth saying.
Ray Kelly on down the local authorities and everybody in keeping us safe New York Stock Exchange which is apparently one of the targets he was thinking about -- like a fortress down there's very difficult to get near it has been.
Since 9/11 are we ready to them.
Best extent that we can be for this type of thing are there still areas you think we need to.
I mean I think this -- this situation is always changing mean you have to realize is that we go back can we have the 9/11 we -- -- -- -- mean essentially run organization Brad you know -- take them out well it's really Spanish spread is an ideology and people -- being self radicalized you get -- cyber attacks and cyber attacks that this is a number of things you can walk into and I think you're right -- The cyber attacks against our economy and it is a financial systems is one that I'm most concerned about yes the physical attacks.
Causing harm and damage to individuals and impact to our economy for the near term.
But that that cyber attack the thing that could bring down our financial system -- even for a short period of time could have devastating consequences for all of us.
And let's not forget is that after 9/11.
A sound in London times said is that his main focus was to attack the economy of the United States he -- that is being our Achilles heel.
That's what they're after so whether symbolically down in front of the Federal Reserve or whether it's over the Internet or any financial systems.
That's what they're all about -- film could see you as always thank you bill -- he semi.
