now going back on what they originally said? >> look, it makes you wonder what in god's name is going on with the fbi. when the fbi made that statement that this wasn't anti-semitic, for god sake, what were they looking at? i mean, the whole world saw this clearly a synagogue. it was in a mosque, it was in a local mcdonald's to take hostages. he could have found hostages anywhere. that was his goal. but he went to a synagogue on the sabbath well services were going on. so, the fbi positioned -- which by the way contradicted the president's position. and almost the very same moment, it is bizarre, it is crazy and we can't figure this out. someone should explain this to the fbi.
