Here’s another fine use of tax dollars: the FBI and cops in New York are scrambling to find out who placed a graphic on an “al-Qaeda forum” and if it represents a threat.
From New York Daily News:
A graphic featuring the New York skyline and posted on terrorism websites blares a chilling message in bold letters: “Al Qaeda coming soon again in New York.”
The NYPD and the FBI are scrambling to locate the source of the message and trying to figure out whether it’s a credible threat or a sick taunt.
The 3-D images spotted on Al Qaeda Internet forums Monday show the letters scrawled across a city street, as a father and son stroll by in amazement.
If the graphic is anything like previous “threats” – including dim-witted patsies lighting their underwear on fire or parking cars in Times Square with barbeque grill canisters – then folks don’t have a whole lot to worry about.
