    ... depends, considering the media is reporting that fingerprints were found as well as other forensic evidence. This may also very well have been a probe to see how we react so they can plan the next larger true attack.

    ... if it's a Muslim, my guess is that they'll try to keep it quiet.

    ... if it's a white male, suddenly this will be attributed to the Tea Party. In Obama's speech yesterday in Michigan it seemed to me as if he was daring people to strike out against the Govt. Did anyone else get that impression?

    ... Coincidental or ?

    Look at those idiots watching the street. They should be getting away as fast as they can and stop looking at the car with the bomb in it. I've been watching the Times Square Cam.

    ... you're right TexasT. Those authorities haven't considered the overpressure and how it channels through streets. Even at that distance, there is the threat of extensive injuries. The other aspect that obviously is not being considered is the secondary shrapnel from breaking glass, etc. In a contained area like Time Square, this is the equivalent of letting off a firecracker in a closed hand vs. an open one.

    ... this has 'dumb' written all over it and in addition, gives those who planted this 'evice' valuable intel for their next REAL attack. This reeks of a probe, in my opinion.

    Been watching it on TV. First started when a witness saw a flash and a small report,then some smoke comeing out of vehicle.
    A cop on horseback was informed of it by a witness,looked it over,then called it in.
    The car contained two full gas cans,varying report of propane tanks.two,and some wire and batteries stored on the rear of vehicle.
    Could be anyone,prints were found in abundance so it may come out...or not.
    The mayor talked it up like it was a nuke or something,and how everyone did their job,which seems to be the only thing positive about the whole story,handled pretty well by all.
    with the parties squabbling,thoughts of terror being fanned furiously,gummint seemingly trying to pick a fight,and all the screwballs running amok it could be any one or anything.
    Perhaps after the investigation we will find out...or not,depending on the agenda at the moment.:dunno:

    I saw a clip on fox news a couple of days ago that showed an internet video of a suicide bomber before he blew himself up and I believe took some of Our folks with him. In the video it appeared to me he made a signal with his wristwatch. Was this the trigger for sleeper terrorists? It certainly makes me wonder.

    ... now really, does this surprise anyone? Again, this was nothing short of a probe.

    Larry, you sure are fast. :09:

    Just got this update. and was fixing to post it!

    Just remember, folks.


    We cant call them TERRORIST'S anymore! :ugh:

    They are now called:

    Our Islamic brethren, who disagree with us. And they are expressing their "rights", to blow us up!

    They only used the word terrorist in hopes that it would be a white male tea party member. Now that it may be a Islamic bad guy, it will be changed to something more friendly Im sure.

    Of course! If it was a "Right Winged" person he would be a "home grown terrorist" and named as such, if it was a Islamic infidel (amarican) hating loony who wants to kill ALL Americans (thats right obama they even hate you) he would suddenly became a "misunderstood individule" tryng to practice his right to "demonstrate" or some BS like that.

    Wait a minute, you mean to tell me that Muslims were behind this? I'm shocked, I thought they would be Quakers sneaking over from Pennsylvania or perhaps orthodox Jews from Brooklyn.
