BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Vince, from what we see right now, we see once again the NYPD bomb squad being tested as they pick up a package and are heading to the Bronx for a detonation center. What have you heard?
VINCE GUASTAMACCHIA (FORMER NYPD OFFICER): Good morning, sir. How are you? Thank you for having me. First, I heard the NYPD bomb squad is premier and cutting edge technology and dismantling these bombs. The fact that these bombs have not gone off is a great indication that I feel these are false flag bombings. Am I allowed to elaborate on that?
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): What does that mean?
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Yes. What do you mean by that?
GUASTAMACCHIA: What I think is this bomber should be fired. He sent five or six packages already, none of them have gone off. I'd really like to have more information on the types of devices. I'd like to have more information on the set-up. Were they set to detonate? I really think that the left feels they're losing on many levels, and I feel they're planting these devices just for -- to play the role of the victim.
DOOCY: Well, Vince, it is too early. There is no suggestion by law enforcement that they have any idea who was behind this series of packages that have been sent. I've heard those kind of conspiracy theories but, I think at this point, less than 24 hours after the first one it's too early to go that direction.
GUASTAMACCHIA: I would say these investigations take time, like you said before. And I'm speculating, of course. However, I don't see, I don't see patriots -- we're not losing. The right is winning at the moment. And I don't see them --
KILMEADE: Vince, appreciate your experience, but right now we are not going to speculate on anything political.
