    I saw on the news that two American flags had been replaced with the white ones that looked like bleached American Flags.

    One of the most famous bridges in the world and a prime terrorist target.
    I hope heads roll because this breach of security was able to happen. Remember not long back when a pair gained access to the top of the new “freedom tower” and rappelled off it because the so called guard was asleep?

Does not anyone think to search the interwebs when an item (acronym, phrase, topic, etc) gets discussed and one is confused.

                  …..and this site is also the equivalent of our front porch where we enjoy exploring things both trivial and serious, long term dangerous and short term funny – and sometimes – within a conversation we just laugh and say to one another, “I have no idea what you’re talking about……”

                  We enjoy our relationships and the conversations that go with them and don’t feel always compelled to leave the porch and rush into the house for a dictionary when we don’t understand something.

                  It’s ok, among friends, to admit we don’t understand something.

            The next 9/11 is coming. It’s not a matter of IF, it’s a matter of WHEN. Obama has allowed thousands of immigrants, legal and illegal, of unknown character, Muslim and otherwise, into this country. When it does happen, it will be sold as government needing more control over the population to provide an illusive security that it cannot guarantee. An excuse for more government control of the masses.

      Why should heads roll? We can’t put a cop/camera on every corner, nor should we want one. Everything and anything can be a terrorist target. While you and I are worried about the Brooklyn Bridge, they are taking over our schools and government. This was obviously done by someone with a sense of humor, something the terrorists don’t have. I wouldn’t worry too much.

        Not to worry about how apparently some gained access and did what they did to one of the most famous bridges in the country that goes into manhattan and carries @124,000 cars daily?
        It doesn’t matter whether what was done was by someone trying to be funny or not, the fact that it was done while it was supposed to be under survellience is my concern.

    I’ve been fascinated by this story all day, inspired actually. It’s got to be a commentary on Obama’s destruction of America and his disgusting foreign policy. Especially interesting this week as we’re seeing his ruining America’s reputation as a leader with his behavior toward Russia/Ukraine and Israel/Hamas.

    And, how on earth did they accomplish this in just two hours? People noticed the lights went out at 3:30am and the flags were there by 5:30am. It’s an amazing feat. Obviously, someone who does bridge work did this so they’d know the intricacies of the operation. Either that, or it’s an Act of God and He’s telling us how bad Obama is.

    Totally agree with Aslan’s Girl on this one – I see construction workers doing this. Or remember those NYC firemen putting up a flag in the rubble of the two towers? It became an iconic photo for me and I still have a copy pinned up on my bulletin board to remind me of the greatness of our people.

    Local news portrayed it just as pranksters replacing the flags that usually fly there with ‘white cloth’. The sentiment was obvious, even with the news playing it as a prank but our station’s a wee bit prObama. I’m amazed that NYC, the city with its own intel people in sites around the world doing active undercover work to prevent another 911 can’t even protect its major bridges. The ‘pranksters’ even managed to avoid the security cameras a on the bridge – if political theaterists can do this imagine what terrorists with an agenda and determination could do. I’m hoping the NYC PD and Homeland Security folks are getting sound ass-paddlings tonight.

      Czar,
      One has to assume that the cameras:

      A) Work.

      and…

      B) Are actually diligently monitored.

      The readiness fatigue set in a while ago, this just makes it blatantly apparent. And New Yorkers are actually paying perhaps the largest municipal police force for this level of protection?

      They stopped “stop and frisk”. Had they stayed with that program, maybe they would have been able to stop these guys with super soakers/backpack sprayers (mental note of how much bleach is needed to do 2 flags of this size & what protective garments/gear are needed).

      The spirit of Harry Tuttle is behind this (clip is from the must see movie “Brazil”)

      • czarowniczy says:

        That’s my point exactly – they SHOULD have been more diligent. That ‘any kind of fatigue’ excuse doesn’t cut it, they’re getting paid to relax off-duty. Bad guys know that surveillance will tell them when the guards are going to most likely be unguarding – which is what the guards are told to avoid as the bad guys…well, you get the idea. Still no word from my NY source on the embarrassment level in the PD over such a gross and stupid lapse of security on an almost cartoonish target. This was not a terror attack, it was a ‘finger in your eye’ prank meant to embarrass, which it did on a number of levels. If I were living in NYC I’d be more than a bit miffed that I can’t have a 32-oz Coke (that’s different from 32-ounces of ‘coke’ which you can buy anywhere in the City) but a band of pranksters can scale one of the most guarded and iconic targets in the city and replace two garrison flags.

            If the crew could have safely breached, and pulled it off, a totally divergent location would have been preferred. (1600 P.A. Ave) Absent of that ability – the ‘Brooklyn’ bridge sufficed.

    I saw a comment on one of these articles that said the flags are faded and it’s a message of how America is fading away under this admin. Made me think of Dinesh’s movie “America” and what the world would be without her. This is not encouraging America to surrender, it’s pointing out that under O we ARE surrendering. And remember, these are NOT plain white flags which surrender flags are: these are American flags bleached white — you can still see the stars and stripes. It’s saying to me that America’s ideals are disappearing. In fact, since the stars and stripes are still somewhat visible on these flags, it’s like warning us that we need to save America before it completely disappears.
