homeland security has revealed a report detailing what he had learned in the aftermath of the deadly attack in a nineteen page assessment of the carbon outlines what areas should be focused on going forward to this discussed this morning i was doing earlier by rt hon to stop future not to have me covered this story in the days after the bombing prayers answered and tell us about the dhs report's findings. what new ideas and nineteen page report that can be best described by the fact that she even knows called lessons learned it uses the word success three times in this report and i'm not even once the world feel toward the leader which basically tells us that i despite staff had been looking back on exactly how events unraveled the ds and dh has been killing me. any anti serious conclusions in terms of mock what could've been done better they certainly don't don't talk about whether or not any of the odd events that unraveled been prevented they don't address the many examples of
8:03 pm
these communications which i will talk about the leader of the shot and missed any opportunity to track down the older brother tunnel answer none of which has certainly been widely questioned. i hope these things not really discussed the report doesn't go into what was done on a map preparation for the marathon and certainly the events that unraveled and how well of course the first responders work needed on the ground once the bombings actually unfortunately took place but not much is said about that what should've been done better. the report released earlier by the house committee on homeland security not to blame some very eating communication techniques officials had been using to keep track of camera lens or not. sir knight excuse me but the older brother threw out with ultimately killed fourteen talk about that. well you know some other things that we've been finding out that that's the techniques really use by one portsmouth have really been on mind blowing because we've been reading
8:04 pm
that i'm doing investigations conducted in the din in the aftermath of this tragedy i'm thinking not about to let you know enforcement officials essentially exchanging up on sticky notes and post its and using up old verbal communication tool out pass on information mainly about the were nine of which has certainly been shocking in the fact that when officials were conducting an advocate from falling through the steps that would see him and realizing there's no i'm not much of official documentation not a lot of luck on information being passed around being formally not traceable which is really shocking in itself. there's been on the no statements from of the boston police saying they when informed by the fbi in terms of what they had heard about the monster night in the id the months leading up to the bombing of the rink went to the story is that back in two thousand eleven. russian officials didn't inform the fbi that they should look into this the person from a monster night that there were red flags that they they they weren't many warnings telling
8:05 pm
the fbi that they should investigate this person of course we do know that the fbi interrogated him and question him and after the drive by in his neighborhood but certain legal staffs are considered by many to not have been enough in terms of what's exactly the fbi had done we know of course that's not to malign travels to russia in twenty eleven and this was us arguably the time that might not established a connection with some of the more group's presence in the north caucasus and we do know that his name for example was misspelled in the system has birthdate was wrong and that kind of legs that can not pass and be able to fly back and forth without any further red flags being raised of course we do know that the fbi despite many questions have been saying that they think they could maybe be done enough and certainly they can say that the outcome would've been different which is which is questioned by many in with a lot of miscommunication that seemingly couldn't avoid it on the last year we've heard a lot about implementing new security measures around
8:06 pm
the country. what could have been made in terms of damping up security in other cities namely when it comes to security cameras. last year we know in particular in india in the massachusetts area for example just in grants from the id chip pass up almost one million dollars were allocated for security including three hundred and seventy million dollars just for the city of boston and you know despite the hot and very big words and security ah we do have to say that zach and in the days after the boston bombings with a camera that ended up in locating and helping pinpoint the two of brothers the two suspects with the camera out but lord and taylor department store and certainly this is raised many eyebrows in terms of where all the water all the other security cameras when we don't know what that their number is absolutely skyrocketing throughout the us but whether or not that's helped is something that's that's certainly a question. that said something
8:07 pm
like about the status rain now the suspects who is in custody. add the younger brother joe carson iso what the latest there. now twenty years old he's the weeding is the jury trial that's expected to take place in november he is of course not facing a death penalty for a i'm on other charges using them as a weapon of mass destruction and that certainly despite the fact that the state of massachusetts. it is not practicing the death penalty since nineteen eighty four this is a federal case and that it is expected that of course we do know that the prosecution is in fact pushing for his execution and we know that the defense is going to be odd trying to weigh most heavily on their assessment that he had been out pressured and controlled by his older brother to non core courses be no died in a shootout with police in that raid in the days and right after the bombings. alright rt correspondent on the future. thanks for that reporting essentially ukrainian government in tn
