former fbi special agent in charge and an abc contributor steve gomez is joining us on the phone. steve, authorities say they're confident this guy acted alone, but, you know, for some time, they were thinking there were other people that might have been involved. what are we learning right now about this case? >> well, you would think that there was somebody else involved because you're talking about four devices, four different locations, two states. that's pretty sophisticated. that's a lot of work that goes into so the idea that he's a lone wolf attacker, it's hard to believe, but that's the operating theory that they're going off of right now. but they are going to be digging into a lot of this guy's background. they're going to be talking to the family, friends, neighbors and so on. they are not going to leave any stone unturned because the bottom line is, you can't let somebody else be out there, whether they were helping him develop the devices that
some financial support or whatever it was. you've got to figure out if there was somebody else involved. >> steve, that's always a big question in cases like this. is there someone else involved? and the other one, of course, are there more devices. what goes into answering that? >> well, it looks like when they conducted the searches, they did find some other explosive items and devices and so on. so that's good they were able to find that. they're going to be doing other searchers, as well, i'm sure. any location this guy had any contact with. so finding additional explosive material, that's going to be very important and, you know, a lot of that is going to start with the analysis that's being done on the devices that exploded as well as the ones that they were able to recover before they went off because the footprint of those devices and the material, they're going to trace them back to where he acquired it and that might lead to some additional clues. >> so you had this incident over the weekend. you had the stabbing in
some ten people we're learning now. of course we had the 15th anniversary of 9/11. any idea that there might have been a timing issue with all of these attacks that took place? >> well, if you notice, you know, because i track this, you know, quite regularly. we talk quite a bit when an incident wliek this happened. and we haven't had an incident like this in a while, i mean, several weeks. and we were having one every week, you know, sometimes twice a week. so you almost wo a dry spell and then there was some kind of online communications that were going on from either isis or al qaeda. i mean, probably isis or just some kind of communication from somewhere to basically say, lay low for a while. because the world was getting hit, you know, every week. and now all of a sudden we have four devices, you've got the minnesota attack there which was gruesome.
happen. you can't rule out any communications. bottom line is the fbi director said that encrypted communications are used. it's harder for the bureau to track that. >> all right. abc news contributor, steve gomez. steve, we would love to talk to you longer. unfortunately we're out of time. but thank you, as always, for talking to us. we appreciate it. >> let's talk about the political ramifications of all this. in the wake of the attacks, donald trump is calling for profiles and casts herself as the only candidate with experience to take on terrorist s >> a new poll on who americans . trust to take on terrorism, clinton at 48%, and trump 45%. a virtual tie. who would be the better commander in chief? it's 50% for clinton and 45% for trump. again, a virtual tie. your voice, your vote. tom llamas is on the campaign
