♦ Bomb squad robot inspecting backpack in New Jersey when a bomb detonated:

Five people have been taken into custody in connection with the Chelsea bombing after the FBI discovered a bomb cache in New Jersey and stopped a car near New York City’s Verrazano Bridge on Sunday night.

The FBI is believed to have called the NYPD for backup at around 8.45pm after making the decision to halt a car on the busy Belt Parkway and found the occupants were heavily armed. No one has been charged with any crime and the investigation is continuing says the FBI who confirmed all five individuals are from New Jersey.

According to the FBI, law enforcement later discovered three pipe bombs and two smaller devices at a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey, near to Newark Liberty International Airport. According to Elizabeth Mayor Christian Bollwage, two unidentified men found a package in a trash bin around 9.30pm and decided to take it because they ‘thought it was of some value’.

When they saw wires and the pipe they dropped it and called Elizabeth Police. Police deployed a robot to examine the device and are currently on scene. All train traffic out of Manhattan to New Jersey was immediately halted while the bomb squad was dispatched. According to state Sen. Martin Golden, the incident is connected to Chelsea and the FBI later confirmed that it was.  (Daily Mail Report)

    gonna play devils advocate for a moment here…did it ever occur to anyone that it is too convenient and quick how these freaks get caught? I mean there was not the specter of 9/11 carnage but that maybe someone on the inside of the Law enforcement is being tipped off or set up by our gubmint to “make it look like they are doing their jobs?” See folks – the system is working and we will get our bad guys wherever they are. Kind of keeping the calm before the REAL SHIT STORM. I got a real bad feeling and I live in Little Mogidishu – MN

    The Cuomo cnn interview this morning will probably be edited. He said some incredibly stupid things. Like for Americans to except these kinds of attacks, because they happen almost daily all over the world.

      We’re lucky because the NYC terrorist apparently didn’t know how to make a bomb as good as the ones the Tsarnaevs made. That’s how we’re lucky.

      Btw, does Chris Hayes maybe think that we’re lucky an off-duty cop in St Cloud had a gun and shot the terrorist stabber?

      The mayor of NY is a real joke. Whether someone acted alone or in unison with someone else, to cause terror on the streets of New York and New Jersey, it’s still TERRORISM, whether it’s caused by a citizen or non citizen. They need to stop with the PC bullshit already.

    I read that Ahmad Rahami came to the US in 2000. Bill Clinton was President then.

      More thoughts …. it would be great if President Trump could make some changes to the refugee resettlement rules. No more bringing them all in and putting them in communities of others who came from their country. They don’t assimilate, they just set up their old country in the US. Scatter them around. Also, force them to stay in one place for 10 years. And force the agencies who place them (and are paid so well to do so) to monitor their progress and make sure they are assimilating and report on any issues. Weekly detailed reports. And we should be doing the same for non-refugee immigrants who come from terror-related countries.


      • Concerned says:

        And don’t let people travel back and forth between the US and terror countries. Rahami apparently recently travelled to Afghanistan. You go there, you STAY there. Put them on a no-fly list, no exceptions.

    Just a couple of thoughts regarding the the “official” vs the real story line. NJ – particularly in and around the Newark metro area – has a large population of ME immigrants with a propensity for radical actions and opinions. ( We saw some celebrating the fall of the Twin Towers. Joe also know an earlier attempt to destroy the twin towers with a vehicle bomb was traced back to NJ. )

    I’ve also seen mention in the some media of officials stating the perp(s) using “Tannerite” based upon explosive traces found at the NYC scene. Tannerite is an extremely stable binary explosive that’s popular among some shooters to create reactive targets. It cannot be detonated with a fuse, electrical bridge, hammer, heat or even low impulse velocity explosives like common fireworks or even ( I believe) black powder as it requires being struck by a rifle round in excess of 2000 fps to initiate. OTOH a quick net search will reveal a number of high-velocity explosives readily “home-brewed” from common chemicals.

    Ok, I’m posting this approx. 10pm Monday night, and by now the bomber has been captured – but more to my interest, the 5 that were pulled over the other night “heavily armed” are reported to have been “questioned and released”.

    Question: how can that be?

    Sundance (or anyone) – It’s an unresolved issue:

    How can it be that the 5 detained the other night have been questioned and released if they were “heavily armed”? Did original reporting of heavily armed not pan out? What gives?

    ♦ Five people were apprehended on the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn near to New York’s Verrazano Bridge
    ♦ They were heavily armed in the SUV according to the FBI who also said they discovered bomb making equipment

    How can you be heavily armed in uber-gun-control New York City and not be in trouble with the law?

    Again – what gives? I posted this query on the newer post (NY/NJ Jihadist Bomber …) for more current visibility, but someone respond please if you’ve figured this situation out.
