We walked across the bridge and saw The Pentagon burning and that stuff. And so I know what you're talking about, because we heard the jets flying combat air patrol over us, but because the reason I asked that too is because there was a trial before that or no, there was a trial that came later. It was the Holy Land foundation. But there was a lot of, but I remember when they started looking at the financing, a lot of places in loudoun county and a lot of places in fairfax county. They looked at from a terrorism financing standpoint. You're exactly right.

"I am joined by the former assistant director of the fbi for counterintelligence author of the book the fbi way which are highly recommend and of course host. The podcast the bureau. Please welcome frankly glitzy frank. Hello jean it's been awhile glad we can do it. Yeah i haven't. I haven't spoken to you in a while. But all of a sudden we've got all these stories popping up that involves the f. b. i. n. intelligence and the capitol police with regards to the insurrection. And i i figured you know. Hey you are an expert in these areas. And so i wanted to get your top line thoughts because i have my own but i don't have the experience that you have. So first of all a report came out from politico about a phone call with apparently over three hundred people who were prepping for violence put potential violence on january sixth at the capitol and there was some insinuation this political report that it may have alleviated some of the fbi the push back against the fbi for is this being an intelligence failure but it seems like there's kind of missed understanding about the structure of how these reports got out. And who was you know trying to sound the alarms and and who wasn't. Can you us clarify what that is about. Yeah well we still have a huge degree of murkiness clarity's escaping here but the what occasionally we get glimpses of what people were trying to do. What intelligence was out there on. It's clear now that this mantra we keep hearing that there was an intelligence indicating. The possibility violence is just nonsense. And it's not so because we know even from the fbi statements that you know fbi norfolk. They had an analyst who put out quite a report about potential. We also more recently heard that there was an fbi was out of a believe alabama out of the bombing analysis center. Who wrote a heck of an email sent laying it all out here from here. The receipts. Here's why i think it's going to get violent. She put that out. So we the intel was there. There was a failure to act on the on. The more recent political reporting is all about a fusion center in the district of columbia. Let me explain what what that is. After nine eleven as you know we stood up the thing called the department of homeland security and they are very methodically. Set about setting up the centers around the country state county local. That would connect help. Connect the dots so there would be no concern or less concern that the feds were in sharing with the locals and equally if not more important that the locals were not sharing with the feds because really where the rubber meets the road on. Intel is the streets and and you can't be intelligence units at city police departments for that. Okay so these fusion centers stand up the political reporting has to do with the dc fusion center and the head of that center. It appears put a call out based on intel. He was seeing and that the fusion center was and he had allegedly hundreds of people on his call and he said anybody got anything essentially. We're worry we think something might happen. We're even going to set up a spot within the f. b. i. e. guardian system and people might say what the heck is the guardian system and that is another mechanism set up so that all the intel all the threats are managed transparently so that all the member agencies can look deserve. Bi system can load threats. Hey we got a guy in wisconsin saying xyz the fbi can say we've got a problem here. It's all there. It all gets numbered tracks. Nothing gets lost in the cracks. Dc fusion center says. We're setting up a place in fbi garden to talk about the d.c threat and share. Okay well you know that that comes out. And what's the big takeaway. The dc fusion center pretty much seems left on its own. I feel horrible just reading it right at a local fusion centers going. Can anybody help. Can anybody got anybody got anything. We're really worried we're going to set up a place to chat about it and even if you look it down in the weeds on that conversation what were. They really focused on any. Anybody got anything counter counter again reflecting. Not so much you know. Well we gotta worry about proud boys. And what have you but rather people who might mess with trump's advocates trump's supporters. So it's just painful to read through. All of these realized. Nobody seems to have taken the reins ag at the federal level. And and. i'm getting really weary of fearing well you know. The fbi doesn't protect buildings doesn't protect the capital It's all about the capitol police yet. Yeah it is and yes. They're intel was horrible but and their response was terrible. But where were the feds. We're was the fbi what has changed to think. We're gonna get this right next time right. Why aren't you picking it up. And then picking up the phone. And not just issuing a norfolk memo a couple of days before the thing happened. You know who's responsible for checking those portals and are there alert systems. And i mean. And why wasn't it declared with all the intel. That was out there. Why wasn't it declared a national security special event. Yes which is what we do. We do for the super bowl we do it for. I think fourth of july fireworks come on state of the union. Yeah at hope absolutely. So you're telling me that. With intelligence indicating potential violence thousand showing up at a rally that you are not concerned about the peaceful transition of power to the next president. Big big problem. And i to think that politics and even pressure have entered into that decision. Yeah and What i think would help clear it up is whoever is supposed to make that declaration. Maybe there's communications about them considering it and refusing or having a conversation about whether or not to declare it as a chore. Those are the things that we need to have. Come to light to help. You know wade through the murkiness that you're talking about all i have on that topic. I throughout my career. I've never been a huge fan of congressional investigations because mvp. This is the arrogance that comes from being in the fbi right well. No one can investigate in congress. Come what you know. What are they gonna do. They gonna get in our way. But i have to tell you when it comes to this. Absolutely i a advocate. Strong advocate for these select committee and getting transparently to bottom of this. Who pressured whom what did as you said. Did anybody suggested national security special event. Who said no because that by the way that's a secret service show really they run national special events. And what do we know about the secret service on january. Six and fall they sent. They sent a memo to the capital policing We have some insult. You guys might.

Remember that everyone was talking about opiate everywhere opiate problem so they got permission to spy on people to prevent mailing of opium and the mailing of firearms. Well like all government programs. They don't just go away when the problem goes away. They actually expand so the expanded this operation to spy on our social media and one of the things that they are allowed to do. Us postal service agents can assume fake identities online to try to get more information from you and the second thing about this and this is the most insidious and the most important part they send the information they collect on americans to fusion centers created by your favorite agency department of homeland security which they assured you owe on. This has just to streamline things so they send this data to the fusion centers that homeland security from there. They're picked up by other members of the fusion. Centers i e intelligence agencies in the us like the cia and nsa who are not allowed to spy directly on you but now they can go in and grab all that information from the fusion centers. it's an absolute cutout for the nsa in the cia spy on and i expressed this to yield wargo. The thing that shocked me was is this meeting their opening up our mail that is so old fashioned. The mail the mail and the information being spread around social media. It's so social. Media is just not doing one little clip here. That's everything you know and opinions and and whatever so that that to me is really really bad. It's an expansion of Of process of surveillance and This whole thing you know. The basic problem is that people don't have enough respect and they don't demand one simple thing in a free society and that is privacy. Yes you know you remember. The debate was involved with the abortion. Thing they they said is. This is say there's word privacy doesn't even exist in the constitution. What doesn't need to be you know if you're a free person. That's that's your life. That's mostly your your privacy. So no privacy is not well respected. By matter of fact it's getting worse every single day and Yesterday i think we talked a little bit about people You know spy on their own families and their neighbors and turning them in. That's when it's really getting bad and There's going to be a lot more anger. So maybe maybe when a few more people get hurt by this they'll wake up and say hey. This is too much like they have with.

"And so it's extremely rare. I guess that they get filed here in the middle district of florida in orlando so the very first lawsuit. We had the the federal prosecutor said that he hadn't had one for fourteen years and They have these weird things called tracks here for their lawsuits. That don't really foil lawsuits. Don't really fit very well into any of the tracks so they kinda get jammed into one track and you have to make a square peg fit into a round hole on this track but it's different dealing with them here because they're in one sense they're more laid back about it But in another you know they start getting concerned over when you use the word. Terror especially at a state level can was talking about the fusion centers in local state judges. They don't ever deal with something. That's related to terrorism. That's always federal so when you have a fusion center that's operated by the state near using the state records law to try to get at these records. The state just throws the word terror in there in the judges. Are they get so concerned. Like oh you know what this touches on national security i. We need to protect our national security. And it's frustrating at a state level here for sure and Like ken said our federal our state lawsuit here in florida department of law enforcement. I think the judge just recognize that they need to give some records but also wanted to to allow for a concession since there was purported terror angle to it and allowed them to redact a little bit more than i think that they should have been able to redact but Now we could have taken on appeal in wasted more time on that or just accept what they give us in in. Go from there. So do you feel like the changing of the guard from trump to biden so to speak makes a difference in in any of this Said difference. I'm not even just talking better tangible difference as far as the Foyer goes but as far as the public reception to these things. As far as people caring about this lawsuit after imagine some degree price some people that like anything that can be viewed on as a judgment on the trump administration. Who suddenly you know stopped caring or even view it as problematic when you bring up the same under a biden administration. Oh yeah. I cease to exist on january twentieth. But i i've been reporting to administration so i'm used to that tendency and With biden's One the things that maybe a little more optimistic about it was that he's just less. Less smooth than obama was pretty pretty charismatic. You know where. I think that by lacks that. So hopefully it's gonna give him more space I'll keep doing the same stuff i have been doing. Mean has really changed. My hope also is that people will understand How independent a lot of these agencies are becoming so when you look at the way that trump used department homeland security. They basically became a sort of political police where he was For example sending into portland oregon to you know put down the protests there These these these these border patrol agents that are supposed to fight cartels. It's called vortex. Border patrol tactical units erasing those to respond. Protesters unrest broke windows at the worst kind of thing in in portland and what's interesting about that. Is that the officials. there didn't want it so senate wanted the mayor of portland and want it. This state reps wanted. And so this was just you know just flagrant contravention of like any purported concerns about states rights and all that stuff that republicans have been doing for your nearest In that way it became.

Addressing Cybersecurity Breaches in a COVID-19 Environment
"Time we were talking in person at the Sava Fusion Center in Sydney and has in the world challenge since we recorded that particular episode and I think it's a really Opportune. Time now, considering accenture has allowed incident response team in various parts of the world but obviously here in the I said Ole side on the tops of attacks the is being used and indeed the motivational the reasons for those attacks I think we might come to you first off the shift in the landscape I've the last few months and particularly since episode one some of the okay from the incident response time. Yes. You'll Chris really really interesting question I'm. I think all follow back to sort of March timeframe when things really starting to get started we saw massive uptake, Immuno covid nineteen themed fishing spear phishing email attacks, which is pretty consistent. With every time we've seen some major political shift or a major incident that gets people's emotions engaged. cybercriminals are pretty quick to the tactics to focus on that to exploit those emotions to get people to. Click on links and install alway but there's absolutely no denying sitting back now in where we end of July and looking back since that time frame it's all about ransomware. It is an absolute epidemic. We are saying certainly strategy. I don't think we've ever seen anything of what we're saying right now but even globally, I, mean there are massive companies just in the last few days Gombe and is all over the price and they've had an unprecedented attack. So I think ransomware is a is a big. Uptick we've seen in terms of changing the threat landscape, but the motivation full that ransomware, and also we've had some federal government, even prime ministerial level announcements in terms of the, but they'd foreign nation state actor motivation, but these ransomware attacks. Ransom crew ransomware crews, running these these campaigns will what what can enterprise be doing? What are you advising your clients in this? And what does what are some of those key controls that enterprise have to stop to get rot? That strike question I think come going back to the whole sort of state basting thread actors in the motivation. What I'm looking at. The question everyone was asking Ileana. These why we sing his uptick you know what's the connection and I've been racking my brain to try to understand what is the connection between the change in circumstances pulse covid nineteen and the increase in ransomware attacks. And what what we've managed to not come off the back of a major incident response way with we're added for sort of full wakes going up against the very threat actor the ICS's sent had only the intelligence reports at-bats June. And what what we sort of fan was during that analysis with different tactics use that I've never seen used before. A lot of the trade crafts very very similar but what we saw will threat actors. The actual attack is doing the attack that to deploy the ransomware with very very unskilled. These were not people who were very sophisticated in terms of their trade craft knowing what they were doing, but they were following a script and they were using automation and so what what I worked at pretty quickly in that sort of analysis was that what we're dealing with the question of why what's the connection but it's how how have threat actors managed to scale operations so quickly and I think it's been a combination of a more automation scripting intend to these attacks in the playbook they using. And possibly more outsourcing in points about the multiple parties they in gold in a ransomware as a service, it's a thing that's used by criminals who break in and gain access to monetize the access that go. So there are different actors during different parts of the service certainly inexperience what's what's been Jimmy leading to this massive uptake is the scale these attackers can now will brian up. So was the to the cut and paste approach, but it wasn't necessarily one act up. More based tools, the automated tools and also some of the services the as you said, the ransomware is a service. Became was it would you? I would the word be unleashed for anyone to use or did you get a sense of was potentially coordination there or was it just? Just. Random tiles in the application of these tools. Now, that's that's a great question. So the ransom web. The to us to make the money to the stuff that actually encrypt dot or an extra traits daughter where you put your, you know your bitcoins into it's an automated platform. There was no human direction. It is literally you get a self service ticket you go up to a you know this this website on the Dogwood you punching you ticket number it tells you how much you need to pay. The whole process is automated, and so that's that's just like A. Sas Platform that the attackers are using to monetize their tax and then the people who do the ransomware extortion they split the proceeds with the attackers had actually broken into the organization and gain the access necessary to deploy the ransomware tools. Now, this first group of people actually breaking, they're the ones where we're seeing a local coordination. So it's not once right active multiple tread actors, but one of the groups that does this figured out how to scale operation that got. Literally play by play. I you run this command then you run that command and they didn't gonNA help this. If you get stuck, there's a website you go to someone can give you help, and so that's that's what I think. The big difference we've seen in the last six months as the scale of people being compromised. Has Gone up substantially.
El Paso shooting suspect charged with capital murder
"And I'm David green in el Paso Texas a normally humming border city that took a severe blow on Saturday with a mass shooting that police are now treating as domestic terrorism in the morning as many

and we're praying again for divine intervention and we're mixing face and medicine together sold its hopefully she will be able to recover well hoping so it's a vision might make it but a lot of families in this position this morning I just wanna orient us like we're we're talking this morning from an upper floor in a hotel in in downtown el Paso which we can see the lights of Mexico from here this is a border community I mean this is a tragedy is affected people in two countries on both sides of the border yes so as of Sunday night Mexican officials announced that seven Mexicans are among the dead I spoke with the brother in law a forty one year old I have in mind sinal who was one of the victims I've been sold medical supplies in neighboring see the point is and he leaves behind a wife and nine year old son and a five year old daughter he's among the many many Mexican shoppers who contribute to the local economy on a daily basis of the Walmart is a quick fifteen minute drive from the border and walking into that store you immediately get a sense of the bilingual bicultural character that is all Paso when the what are we learning about the the shooter here well the suspect is a twenty one year old white male authorities are looking into a manifesto possibly linked to him that indeed expresses anti immigrant sentiments and refers to the quote Hispanic invasion of Texas this man is from a suburb outside Dallas the FBI believes he acted alone and he's currently booked into the county jail without bond facing a charge of capital murder I I know it it has to be an experience took to cover something like this in your hometown you know as we reported here together before on on immigration issues just reflect on this as as a resident of someone who who knows passes so well gosh well I mean I think I'm myself just as much as everyone else is trying to do our best to to hold it together and into our jobs I mean el Paso has had to show a great deal of resiliency lately it's been at the receiving end of thousands of central American migrants are fleeing poverty and violence and by and large the community has responded in the same way to both situations humanely last night el Paso wins gathered for an interface visual the vigil they delivered food and water to one of the ER's treating patients as well as to law enforcement out working the Walmart crime scene since Saturday a local fundraisers razor his raised at least two hundred fifty thousand dollars to aid those impacted by the shooting and in fact that figure is probably a lot higher by now journalist Monica or to use a rebate joining us and passes when Monica thanks for all your work we we really appreciate it sure thing David I want to turn now to the mayor of describing city DiMarco has been the mayor of el Paso for two years after serving the Texas house of representatives and joins us on the line mayor I I know how busy you are we're all thinking about your community right now and thank you for for taking a few minutes for us sure how have you been been spending your time since the tragedy who have you been speaking with and and what can you tell us to give us us some sense of understanding of of what's communities going through well first of all we had a briefing from our a and R. fusion center which is where the police in our office of emerging management monitors things up at the full briefing on on this particular individual who in my estimation is nothing but pure evil and you know on and his Missy there's diatribe related to where we will I've said on number of occasions I was at the interface service last night I was at the hospital yesterday I met the two and a half month old little boy who lost his mother protecting him right and I understand later is also lost his father this is a tragedy that that's just totally unnecessary it will not the final class so we are unique region people cannot understand what our region is like until they come here and we've been one region by national park cultural three hundred and fifty years a hundred years before the United States was even formed and we're at the we're region of two and a half million people and we are not going to let this defiance where does the investigation stand as of this morning if if you could update us well the break and I had the last week and I had was yesterday afternoon at all the attorney general's office is one pocket crimes against it which also is subject to the death penalty and in Texas we're going to file capital murder charges against him which is subject to the death penalty as well I think he's a coward a minute ago is pure evil you would never I have I do not believe the the trader would have ever originated in el Paso which not us our culture to our nature and it's just a tragedy that we will recover from but I'm not sure we're gonna finish or actually really start the recovery until we get through to the twenty funerals we know we're going to have to go through the next couple weeks how do you even prepare for that twenty funerals that then I'm sure you'll be you'll be trying to attend as many as you can I don't know this is something I don't believe any mayor could ever prepare for I don't think that there's a handbook for that irrespective of the of the incidents that occurred in the past I certainly wasn't prepared for that brother thanks thank goodness our police department was prepared for active shooters I mean they they got a call at five thirty at ten thirty nine in the morning they were there at ten forty five and eleven oh six he was apprehended we are one of the safest city in the nation we will remain one of the safest cities in the nation we will not let this stopper and as I said it will not to find it younique younique region and we will continue and pursue their this this angry Streeter manifesto that the attacker you know suppose we posted on online sets among other things that that his actions were response to an invasion of Texas by Hispanic immigrants the the hate in that document how surprised are you did did did you know that this kind of hate is is out there I probably a new it but now I've not been confronted by it I did read is that Dr I hate filled the machine baby if that is it I don't I you know I can't put my arms around it I'm not a psychologist or psychiatrist I don't know what's driving that but it's not what el Paso was about yeah we're we're eighty four percent or eighty five percent Hispanic but we're we're probably people cannot get over house Brinley and how how family oriented we are as a regional minimum wage I say were region two and a half million people in our everyday just thirty two do you do you think I am he deserves the death penalty if if if there's a trial that happens in at least that way I would say at this juncture he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and if that is the end result so be it we also spoke with the mayor of Dayton Ohio if this morning I mean it's it's it's stunning that another mayor in another city is going through a mass shooting this weekend she said it's time for people in Washington to take action on gun control at how do you respond to that well something's got to be done and it's one of my is a good friend of mine we both talked yesterday morning kitchen may
