-- -- With us now -- former New Jersey governor -- a co chair of the 9/11 commission Tom -- I'm delighted to say is with us in the -- governor good to have you.
Good to be a -- so much we don't know governor let's get to.
Maybe your vantage point as someone who looks at communication or after the fact communication.
Among agencies that fell apart.
During on eleven -- -- 9/11.
What do you figure the communication les would you hearing thus far between the respect.
-- -- From -- so -- sounds pretty good the federal government has been working with local authorities.
That would can together enough and that seems to me those who -- good so far are famous for -- seamless way.
They're trying to interview people could you know what may happen but I often happens here -- -- law enforcement authorities who coached people and somebody who saw something.
And reports it -- put two and two together.
There were a lot of cameras around and no monitoring events there on every street corner got out of regular day and that's what they don't know what's really going to be looking -- -- -- -- -- come rescue me.
They're going to be examining the explosive trying to find what kind of explosive was and where money come from and who could've gotten that.
In -- -- people looking at those cameras.
We fund who it is my suspicion is it's going to be because of those killed killed cameras because of the people.
What does it turns -- it's homegrown.
-- -- a big worry always.
Because -- much you know we could stop people coming into the country would come pretty good -- When -- already -- the authority -- that's been a great problem when Lee Hamilton had been reported another great subject of -- worry about homegrown terrorists and I think this.
Sounds to me like it may be in that category and and a -- can't tell we don't know anything yet.
But this could well be you don't know whether it's somebody.
Terrorist from the traditional terrorist network should be somebody has a grudge noticeably grudge against city of Boston so happened to him.
And these days you know there are a lot of violent people out there and and any time one of these people wouldn't wolf.
We always seize on -- -- governor mean of this patriots say of course in Massachusetts as well as a lot of new englanders.
Patriots are independents are first battles of Lexington what happened on some -- -- -- -- So it could be.
You know conjecture though it -- -- -- his anger what's become of this country and then it started sowing doubts about.
You know together we are as a country despite what the president's you know this is not about Republicans and Democrats -- concerned Americans.
So it could be a pretty -- It could mean obviously you're actually right forced and -- the center of this -- this country.
And Boston -- -- the sunroof.
A memorial patriotism.
All of that and -- -- -- on patriots day.
And do it in the largest event that happens in the city of -- -- the marathon means somebody's somebody's really aiming at something and we'll find out what.
You know one -- from your point chicken a couple of -- my head if you don't mind governor that.
Sometimes we're lucky sometimes we're not I always think in 1993 -- we kind of lucky that that band.
Was not part to eight inches closer to that -- whenever it was because the whole building -- collapse in that event I'm told.
In this case we might have been lucky despite the injuries and that in the -- too -- is known so far.
If it the -- have gone off at a different time earlier in the race before many the premier runners had had it come to the finish line.
We just don't know the -- we do that it we might give.
I know this sounds a little awed by saying it looked if it turns out that this either went off a little too light or.
Didn't have as much time as.
You know -- the guy behind it or guys behind it want it.
Well if you going to really do this.
Does that would've wanted to do.
You have it you have -- -- -- -- at the time in the league runners.
Came to the finish line and that that it won't pass gets it that's when most of the people that -- been a lot more people around that finish line.
If -- -- dog gone off at that time.
And so that's we presume this was somebody again when the tool for people with the -- many people as possible.
What do you make then of this event.
The repeated nature of other bombings other incidents JFK museum whether link to this or not it was confirmed by Reuters that there was an explosion there.
A couple of others that were tested.
So that they did there was a London deal -- there's -- Madrid -- this.
-- -- Doubt we'll find much I could be wrong but -- who fund much of a link to -- -- -- That's when I think may turn out to be one of these unique people.
The lone wolf terrorist particularly native born is biggest worry.
Now and the smells of that to me somebody whose native born somebody's got a grudge against somebody or some thing.
That wasn't you know the white smoke indicates to me it probably wasn't plastic explosives that will meet with -- al-Qaeda is used in the past some like me like an old fashioned expose.
And that's true that they will be native born -- -- movement but maybe somebody who soon.
Unfortunately that's a grudge against somebody -- something having to do with the city of America.
We just don't know governor thank you and the -- All right Tom -- in the meanwhile.
