Saturday evening a car was found by police to contain gunpowder, propane and a crude timer according to the NYPD. A mounted police officer now identified as Wade Rattagan, observed smoke coming from a sport utility vehicle with hazard lights flashing at 6:30 pm, in addition to a statement that an official made from Department of Homeland Security who wasn’t authorized to release the information and spoke on condition of anonymity to reporters.
Police evacuated a number of residential and commercial buildings and cleared the streets of thousands people with militarized police deployed around the area with what is described as heavy automatic weapons according to bystanders. One male tourist said it looked like something you would see in a hollywood movie.
Federal agents responded with the NYPD and Paul Bresson, head of public affairs office at FBI headquarters in Washington said, “the matter is being taken seriously”. Tourists reported hearing a small explosion hours after the car was first located. The area that was closed is home to several major Broadway shows, with seven theaters.
The SUV itself is unidentified and the license plate was stolen from another vehicle. Police made contact with the person that had taken the original car with the plate to a junk yard. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) was removed and the fact that the hazard lights were left on raise questions about the premeditation of this event.
Earlier this week a story broke with U.S. Military sources leaking a document detailing an exercise simulating a military response to Tea Party activists and tax protestors at Fort Knox.
The document demonstrated that detention centers would be readied for mass arrests as well as other Military LEO’s being on standby. The document though an exercise, simulated activists as an enemy as military would have access to ammunition draws for engagement.

It is now public that the the attempted bombing of a Detroit bound airliner in December 2009 had been orchestrated by rogue elements inside the U.S. Federal Government with ties to Israel, to further the expansion of domestic police state measures.
It is also notable that about a week ago a man was arrested for possessing sodium cyanide on the NY Subway raising questions regarding whether both events are linked and if there is federal involvement. Military sources tell us there is little practical use for a terrorist to target civilians as it would only garner public support for the U.S. Government suggesting that this could likely be staged or the work of a disgruntled amateur.
Claims that Pakistani Taliban admit responsibility for the New York attack in revenge for the two leaders al-Baghdadi and al-Mahajer and Muslim martyrs is unverified and purportedly said a statement on a website commonly used by Islamists as reported by Reuters Sunday. Conflicting reports indicate that Pakistani Taliban deny responsibility for the attack.
Fears that Pakistani Taliban may obtain nuclear weapons from Pakistan’s Government have been expressed by the Obama Administration. It is highly likely that a nuclear or biological device will be detonated in a major U.S. city by 2013 according to a bipartisan panel on Tuesday, December 02, 2008.
The report of the Commission on the Prevention of WMD Proliferation and Terrorism, led by former Sens. Bob Graham of Florida and Jim Talent of Missouri, acknowledged that terrorists still lack the needed scientific and technical ability to make weapons out of pathogens or nuclear bombs.
