FBI Still Hasn't Found DNC, RNC Pipe Bomb-Maker

"Authorities have charged hundreds of people for allegedly participating in the January 6th right of the U. S Capitol. But one person still eludes them. The person who placed two explosive devices in Washington D. C the night before Here are Tim Mack and Dina Temple Raston from NPR's investigations unit. The crime the FBI is trying to solve happened between 7:38:30 P.m.. That's when authorities believe the suspect planted two pipe bombs just blocks from the Capitol. The suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt. Ah Cove in mask and expensive sneakers. They were Nike Air Max speed turf with the yellow logo. Surveillance cameras captured the figure walking through a Capitol Hill neighborhood the night before the January six riots. One of the bombs was placed on a park bench near the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee, the other behind Republican Party headquarters and surveillance footage caught the suspect walking look at how close their feet are to each other. So that is a narrow base of gate. That's Dr Mike Nierenberg, who wrote the textbook on Forensic Gait analysis. He helps identify people based on how they walk. He's watching along with us as we review surveillance video from that night immediately. What you notice is the arm swing of the person on that left arm. There's not a lot of rotation in their upper half of their body, their torso. The FBI has asked for help finding someone who walks like this. The explosive devices they found were made from one by eight inch galvanized steel pipes. Plumbers typically used And they had plastic kitchen timers mounted on top. The con Jews been around set. The FBI said the explosive inside was homemade black powder, which could be a mix of just about anything that will ignite. Typically, it includes salt Peter and sulfur and gunpowder.

And get to work will appear sleaze and figure out how to find common ground. You hear Portman? They're saying that the reaction of this could not just be about this bill. It could really poison the well going forward. Democrats are pretty unmoved by this. I don't know if they think that the Republicans are ever going to come around and support this bill. So they're looking at starting that budget process next week. All right, that's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thank you. You're welcome.

He decided to give the American people an idea of what the U. S military was doing in cyberspace. You went public with a new strategy he called defend forward. So defend for it is d O d strategy. It looks outside of the United States. That's General Nakase owning an NPR interview about a year before the last election. We're gonna expand our insights of our adversaries. We're gonna know our adversaries better than they knew themselves. Secondly, we're gonna harden our defenses and the third thing will be poised to act. Not a Sony was sending a message of deterrence to Moscow. If you meddle in the presidential elections the way you haven't passed, he was saying The U. S is poised to respond. It's a little bit different in cyberspace because you have photos that can come and go very, very quickly. Taken by infrastructure. They can develop their capabilities. They can conduct attacks and what you have to do from what I've learned is, you have to be persistent on them and making sure that whenever they do that type of thing, you're going to be there and you're gonna be impact them, it turns out is not a Sony was talking about being persistent on them.

Why Didn't The FBI And DHS Produce A Threat Report Ahead of The Capitol Insurrection?

Why Didn't The FBI And DHS Produce A Threat Report Ahead of The Capitol Insurrection?

"Before most major protests are rallies, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI. Usually produced a formal intelligence report explaining the possible threats, and then they send that report to local law enforcement to help them plan. DHS and the FBI did one of these threat assessment assessments ahead of the demonstrations in Portland, Oregon, after the killing of George Floyd last spring. He also did one before Black lives matter Marches in Washington in June, But there was no threat assessment done ahead of the deadly attack on the U. S Capital. NPR's Dina Temple Raston of our investigations team has been looking into this. Good morning, Dina. Good morning. I mean, all you had to do. Deena was look at social media for the weeks leading up to the January 6th rally. To know things could potentially get really bad at the Capitol. You didn't even need a formal threat assessment to tell you that did law enforcement Just not pick up on that. No, that was part of the raw intelligence that they were putting together like the New York Police Department scrapes social media, and they sent what they found A Washington There was sort of unverifiable threats, that sort of thing. Bond. There was more raw intelligence that came before that. Just a day after that, Just a day before the pro Trump rally, the Norfolk Field office in the FBI confirmed that They had found specific threats against members of Congress and exchange of maps of the tunnel system under the Capitol complex, and there were people online talking about gathering in Kentucky and Pennsylvania and South Carolina. To meet up before convoy Ng up to Washington and things. Norfolk report was first reported in the Washington Post a couple of days ago. So they were gathering this together then then what happened to where did that raw intelligence go? Well, that's the problem. It never made it much past that raw intelligence stage, so basically they might have picked up a thread or had a human source. Tell them something or that or say that they saw something, but it didn't go to the next step, where it's validated and analyzed and Put into a larger picture put into context. So when the FBI does that they put it in a report called an Intelligence bulletin. When DHS does some something like that they call it a threat assessment report. And then sometimes the two of them put out a report together and typically, then they would send that that finished product out to local law enforcement. So we're going to talk about why that didn't happen. But first, can you just explain? Why is that assessment so much more valuable than straight? Raw Intel? What's the difference? Local law enforcement sees threat assessment says actionable intelligence I mean the bulletins are considered finished right there a synthesis of validated and analyzed intelligence and that helps local law enforcement make informed decisions. So we talk to the former head of DHS Michael Chertoff and get into your point. He said that in this case, the threat was so out in the open. The threat assessment was almost beside the point. It was perfectly obvious. She read the newspaper that there was gonna be a big rally that the president was talking about being be wild and that the focus was going to be the capital. Where they were having a certification vote show. They didn't take rocket science to see if there was a realistic foreseeable risk to the Capitol, and you would enhance the security. I mean, but maybe they need the threat assessment to put the process in place to get troops on the ground or security forces on the ground. I mean, DHS and the FBI have issued intelligence bulletins for four as we mentioned Black lives matter. Protests what was different this time around? Why didn't they treat this the same way? Our reporting found that one of the reasons that they didn't treat it the same way may have been bias. We talk to someone named R P. Eddy and he used to be in the National Security Council. He's done a lot of counterterrorism work. He worked with the NYPD and the LAPD. And now he has his own intelligence consultancy, and he thinks It's something called the invisible obvious. Was it work and basically, that's things that sit right in front of us that we don't notice. It was very hard for these decision makers in these analysts to realize that people who look just like them could want to commit this kind of unconstitutional violence and get little he tried to and want to kill them. So in other words, in other words, this was supposed to be a pro trump rally, and then it wasn't and it was hard for these law and order people to see that this mob these people who were so pro Trump, who had bumper stickers, just like theirs on the back of their cars were going to commit violence. And by the time they figure that out, it was too late. And then it really begs the question. Did they not see it? Because they didn't want to see it. I mean, or they couldn't see it were their blind spots. Exactly And that and that, In fact, a lot of these people that they were seeing, right? I mean they were wearing pro Trump T shirts. They were there to support the president. When you think of those kinds of people. You you don't think about those being the people that you might have to worry will resort to violence and that was what went wrong. It wasn't you know something nefarious. It was just when you looked at it without the analysis. It seemed like this'll was just going to be another rally. And then it wasn't NPR's Dina Temple Raston of our investigations team. Thank you.

"King, and I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning. More than a million students in the nation's largest school district will once again be learning from home Today. New York City has closed its schools because the Corona virus has gotten so bad there again on the Kamenetz from the NPR Ed team is in New York and joins us now. Good morning, Onya. Hi, Rachel. How did this happen? How did New York get to this point? Well, it's been a saga you know, at the opening of schools was delayed twice this fall. There were acrimonious debates between parents, the union educators, the city, the state, and, most recently, it was hours after sort of the initial, Um, uh, announcement that parents actually learned that they wouldn't have anywhere to send their Children the next day. Uh, So how? How are officials making this decision? What criteria? Are they basing it on? So Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously set this threshold of 3% positivity rates on tests taken across the city. That's that's very different from what we're seeing inside the schools where there are very few cases and we've been edging closer to that 3% standard over this past weekend. Now, Rachel 3% positivity is a pretty low level. Some critics have called it arbitrary. The mayor has called it, you know, conservative and stringent. How does this decision in New York computer what's happening happening in other places around the country? I mean, I think what we've been seeing obviously cases arising around the country and even in places where they'd opened up. Sometimes they have to close down again because there's so many staff in quarantine, but generally across the country. Cities are much more likely to either stay remote or go remote. You know, l a USD in Chicago have stayed remote. This whole time. Detroit and Denver just went remote. So the Des Moines to the Toledo, Oklahoma City and S. So it's It's really it's. It's a tough time for in person school right now. So what are you learning on you about the science to disclosing schools actually make a difference in curbing the spread? This is a really tricky point. You know? Most scientists at this point will tell you that schools, especially elementary schools, have not been found to be significant sources of spread. As a reported recently, we're seeing in many places in Europe. They've been dealing with the second wave by closing bars, restaurants, sometimes lots of businesses yet keeping schools open. But there's very few are any places in the United States that are actually putting the kids first. In that way, so Lots of critics who point out here in New York City. Indoor dining is still open at 25% capacity and their many local officials calling on the mayor and the governor to prioritize school's over bars or restaurants. What are parents telling you? I mean, especially parents who can't tell a work right? Who can't stay home with their kids? Right? So, you know, Rachel, this is a big, diverse district, Its majority low income and we should note on Lee about 300,000 of the Million Plus students have been going to school in person, so there's a lot of variations the mayor did mention yesterday. But the city has space in its learning Bridges program, which is basically free child care, especially for essential workers. So about 30,000 spots right now, we also heard yesterday and this is kind of upsetting when it comes to equity. There are about 60,000 students in the city who still don't have devices for learning at home. They're gonna be getting paper packets, and that's eight months in schools closed. But I think you know, I talked to Daniella example. He started a petition to keep schools open. She's a working mother of two, and she feels like the city's taking parents like her for granted. I think a lot of it is frankly, you're a parent and you love your Children, so you always figure it out. But there's just no recognition of the insurmountable burden that parents have been under for the last seven or eight months. She added, especially working moms. NPR's on your common. It's thank you. Thanks. When the time comes to vaccinate the world against covert 19. Will there be enough glass vials and syringes to get it done? The Trump Administration appears to have a backup plan in case there aren't later today, It's expected to announce that it will loan about $600 million to a company in Connecticut that makes an injection device that can be mass produced. Here's Dina Temple Raston of NPR's investigations team. That's the sound of a coded 19 vaccine backup plan. It's a production mine in Columbia, South Carolina, that's turning out a novel injection device. The Trump Administration is counting on to help deliver the covert 19 vaccine as early as this spring. NPR's learn that later today, the administration will add to its already hefty investment in a company called Apple Jacks Systems America and extend more than half a billion dollars to its effort to backstop the country's cove in 19 vaccine program. I'm Jay Walker, and I am the chairman of abject systems, and you found it another company we've heard of right? Yes, I am best known as the founder of Priceline dot com. The founder of Priceline, The man who put William Shatner back on the map is now producing a single use, self contained injection device that's designed to be an alternative to glass vials and syringes. We called us Sarette. It's a little bigger than your thumb, and it looks a little like those single doses of eye drops that you get from the eye doctor. It has a hypothermic needle that you screw into the end like you do when you screw in a nozzle on the tiny bottle of Krazy Glue. Only in this case, it would carry any number of approved covert vaccines, Walker said. It's that effort that the U. S. International Development Finance Corp is funding with a $590 Million loan. The U. S government is announcing a plan to support the biggest and fastest vaccine syringe filling factory. Up to three billion doses a year. That's billion with a B even though the injection device has yet to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, which worries Nicole Laurie. She served at the Department of Health and Human Services during the Obama administration. The challenge that I see is that it is a completely untested technology what testing of the abject product has been done. To ensure that the materials inside the abject containers don't interact with the components of the various vaccines. The vaccine being produced by Moderna, for example, needs to be kept it Arctic temperatures. Walker says the abject devices can handle that. But the FDA has yet to certify that that's true. Then you can say that about a lot of the projects funded by the Trump administration to try to combat the virus. Tens of billions of taxpayer dollars have been spent to fund a roster of vaccines, some of which are bound to fail. The point is to try and find a solution. You're in the wrong is the global program leader for medical devices at Path, which is focused on improving global public health and developing countries. And he's been tracking app ejects progress for awhile, and he says he's hired some people who are really good at pre filled technologies from our perspective. Low cost pre Phyllis something that we've always been aiming towards for lower middle income countries. He doesn't think the administration is making a particularly risky bet. I'm excited about what could be. I mean, we could truly have a low cost scaled up. Refilled system that could be used for a number of different drugs or vaccines. Biologics that could benefit low and middle income countries. Abject is getting a cash infusion. Now it needs FDA approval to become the backup plan. The Trump Administration is banking on Dina Temple Raston NPR news Joe Biden has an ambitious climate plan and there are a lot of people with government experience who could help implement that plan, But some of them have ties to fossil fuel industries, and that is a problem for climate change.

CDC Report: Officials Knew Coronavirus Test Was Flawed But Released It Anyway

"We're also tracking the pandemic where the United States remains the world leader in cases and deaths this election week the U. S surpassed 100,000 cases per day for the first time, and today we have more of the story of how we got here. And NPR investigation has revealed news of a failure of Corona virus testing early in the pandemic. In February, a test designed by the Centers for Disease Control did not work, which set back U. S efforts now on internal investigation from the CDC, obtained by NPR shows the microbiologist who produced that test new it was flawed. And send it to the nation's labs. Anyway. Here's NPR's Dina Temple Raston. The covert tests arrived in New York City on a Friday in early February, when there were just a handful of confirmed cases in the United States that there was a little box with a few little tiny screw cap test tubes in it. That's Jennifer Rickman. She's the director and assistant commissioner of the New York City Public Health Laboratory, and she was one of the first people to learn that the cove in 19 tests the CDC sent to labs around the country. Actually didn't work. It became clear as soon as her lab technicians tried to verify the test. But the e mails from the lab stuff for saying something looks not quite right. Call us what jumped out at them. When the lab brand specimens that were supposed to be negative. The tests seem to indicate those samples contained a low level of the corona virus. It was truly an oh, crap moment like what are we going to do now? Everybody is waiting for us all over the city to have this test online. Everybody was holding on to this moment that we were going to have a test and now we don't have it and they wouldn't have it. It turns out until nearly a month later in March, which meant public health officials were hobbled from the earliest days of the pandemic health officials across the country reporting a shortage of tests. Despite promises from the federal government comes amid growing criticism that the delay in testing may have compromised the nation's ability to detect cases The CDC lab appear to have failed in a spectacular way. Though, as recently as July, the agency was still saying the test didn't have a problem. Here's CDC director Robert Redfield. When we did try to expand that test to give it to each of the local health departments, there wasn't manufacturing problem in one of the re agents that had to be corrected. That took about five weeks, But the agency's internal review suggests that isn't so It determined that the scientists who built the test used the wrong quality control procedures. The review also found problems with the lab's quality standards and problems with the management of the Latin more generally. The infectious diseases lab was run by a highly regarded scientists, Dr Stephen Lindstrom. He'd been an expert in influenza at the CDC for more than a decade and became director of the infectious Diseases lab a couple of years ago. The CDC declined to make Lindstrom available for an interview and declined to comment for the story. But Kelly Rib Lusky, director of infectious diseases at the Association of Public Health Laboratories, Said she was surprised that Lindstrom's lab would be called out on a report for something basic like quality control. That hadn't been her experience with him. I've done studies with Steve, and he's meticulous. And so the documentation failure was really surprising, So that was one thing the CDC found. A problem in the way the lab was run. The second thing that review found was that right before the test, we're going to be sent to hundreds of public labs. The lab ran a final check that showed the kids might not work. Ah, third of the time. But rather than pull the kids back, lab officials sent them out anyway. Kelly Rib less key again. The thing that hangs me up the most is probably the the 33% and not recalling you're not immediately going toe remanufacture or something at that point, because 33% is clearly a lot. To ensure this never happens again. The CDC review has recommendations for change. It sets clear criteria that must be met before the kids could be sent out rather than allowing lab directors to make a judgment call. An outside group must review all the CDC test kits before they go out. Stephen Lindstrom, for his part, no longer runs the lab and none of the same people who oversaw the making of that test. Are in charge. Now. New York's Rickman says that month they lost was crucial to the outcome in the response nationally as well as in New York City would have been different if we were able to have all the tools we needed in our toolbox earlier than we did not having the CDC tests, she said, was like building a house with just a saw and not a hammer. They needed a hammer, she said. Dina Temple Raston NPR news

How two promising lawyers found themselves facing life in prison for alleged Molotov cocktail attack during protests in New York

"Rahman Rahman and and Colin Colin Furred. Furred. Mattis Mattis were were kids kids from from immigrant families who made good both graduates of prestigious law schools. She represented tenants in Housing Court. He was an associate at a corporate firm in Manhattan. Now they face life in prison in one of the government's highest profile cases against protesters. Dina Temple Raston of NPR's investigations team reports. The night of May 29th in Brooklyn was chaos as curfew Jew near police in riot gear began to make arrests. Protesters started throwing water bottles and bricks. The NYPD tried to break up the crowd with pepper spray in swinging batons being excessively aggressive with this crowd here, and it is inappropriate. 70 woman Diana purchased and I'm an elected official, and they just pepper sprayed me for no reason. Rouge Rahmon was there to local journalist stopped her for an interview. Her face was covered with the scarf. She was wearing a black T shirt that read. The struggle continues. This protest is a long time coming. I think that the mayor Should have pulled their his police department back. The way that the mayor and Minneapolis But the part of the interview that ricocheted around the Internet was this. Won't ever stop unless we Take it all down. And that's why the anger is being Express tonight. In this way, prosecutors say in NYPD surveillance camera captured images of Rockman a short time later, she was writing in the passenger seat of a van. Her friend Colin for Mattis was driving. What allegedly happened next defense attorney Shipman says is the basis for the charges against them. It's alleges that a rouge threw a Molotov cocktail into a police car and empty police car. Essentially abandoned police car police car that had been previously vandalized. Two police officers were across the street They gave Chase and Rouge and Colin were arrested. The NYPD video apparently shows it all Rothman and that T shirt. Beige van slowing as it neared the police vehicle. The lighting of a toilet paper fuse the arc of a beer bottle as it crashed under the cruiser's dashboard. The whole episode lasted just seconds. Rahman and Mattis now face seven felonies in federal court. The charges include the use of explosives, arson conspiracy, the use of a destructive device, civil disobedience and the use of a destructive device in the furtherance of a crime of violence. This last charge alone, known as 9 24 C of the criminal code carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 years in prison. Add that to the other charges against them, and they could face life behind bars. Attorney Paul Shechtman represents a rouge Rockman and he says his client's case has been singled out ever since. It's been taken federally it has been treated with a seriousness. Ah, harshness unlike any I've ever seen. NPR reviewed 47 Molotov cocktail in arson cases filed across the country. That involved the destruction of police property. And this case to which prosecutors added 1/3 person, Rahman Mattis say they don't know is the only instance in which that 30 year mandatory minimum charge appears. Molotov cocktail cases are usually charged his property crimes in state courts. A spokesman for the U. S Attorney's office declined to discuss the case or they're charging decisions. Attorney General William Barr has been saying for weeks that extremists plotted the violence that erupted during the protests. And he said as much to NPR's Steve Inskeep in an interview last week when we arrest people in charge them at this stage anyway. We don't charge them for being a member of Antifa. We charge him for throwing a Molotov cocktail or we charge them for possession of a gun or possession of gasoline and things to make bombs with. Those are the kinds of charges that are filed. And while prosecutors haven't offered any evidence that Rothman and Madison, part of an extremist group You wouldn't know it from the way they were charged. Good afternoon. Your Honor, This is David Kessler. I'm in the U. S attorney in the Eastern District of New York. The harshness and the Rothman and Mattis case went beyond the charges. Prosecutors also fought their release on bail even though it was supported by two different judges. 56 former federal prosecutors found the government's position so alarming. They filed an amicus brief with the court. A panel of judges heard arguments last Tuesday and because of the Corona virus, all this happened over the phone. This is how it began. The District court's order releasing the defendant on bond should be reversed. And when I want to focus on here is the core issue the danger to the community government attorney David Kessler. This is not a case about a youthful indiscretion or crimes passion. It's about a calculated Dangerous crime committed by adults who risked the lives of innocent civilian first responders. Their crime is so serious, Kessler argued. It negates any mitigating factors that came before it. To throw that Molotov cocktail, he said, required essentially a fundamental change in mindset about for them. That's really what the core of the cases, Shenkman told the judges. Thie entire evening was an aberration. Here's their exchange. You can't imagine what a soldering event this arrest was. Mr Shipman. I can imagine how these people did what they're shown on video to have done. I find the whole case unimaginable. But having during that happened once I'm I'm wondering why it is so unimaginable that it wouldn't happen again. I think because that night Wass really unique. It was young people not just used to people out to protest police violence who saw more of it. Right one. Khun lose one sense on an evening like this. That argument appears to have convinced two of the three judges that Rockman and Mattis aren't a danger to the community. The judges said in an opinion yesterday that they agreed with the lower court that the pair could be safely released on bail. Rahman and Mattis were allowed to go home last night. In the months ahead, they have more than just the government charges to fight. They also have to battle the suggestion that they're mixed up in what theater knee general is called. A witches brew of extremists. Dina Temple Raston. NPR NEWS New York
