Bill Gavin defends the FBI: "There is only so far you can go, you can't force anybody to tell you"

As experts and authorities search for information that may help explain what lead to the Boston Marathon bombing, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Bill Gavin to share his specialized blend of professional insight and intuition.

A former Assistant Director of the FBI, Gavin addressed recent criticism by those suggesting the Bureau hadn't done its due diligence in following up on warnings passed along from Russia:

"There is only so far you can go, you can't force anybody to tell you. They did probably all the background stuff that they have to do, with the electronic, and looking at a few things, and then the interview. I heard somebody say this morning, 'Just asking him if he's a terrorist and him saying no, the FBI hung the whole thing up.' That is absurd, of course it didn't happen that way."

Currently the Vice President of one of the world's leading security services, Gavin also offers his thoughts on the danger of terrorists being created within the borders of the country:

"Homegrown terrorism is the scariest part of terrorism in the United States today, particularly if you have somebody who is self-radicalized, and in this particular case, two brothers who never spoke to anybody about what they were going to do," Gavin told Piers Morgan. "That's where homegrown terrorists are the worst, because they don't share. If you've got a cell, somebody is going to talk to somebody and say something that they shouldn't be saying. But in this particular case, there was no pre-warning, there was nothing. And that is something that scares us all to death."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Gavin offers his opinion as to whther or not the Tsarnaev brothers acted alone, or are a function of a larger group.
