    At least that way if the prohibition against profiling is relaxed all that needs to be done after another trror incident in NY is to go get the cabbies. This could be easier than Arizona!!!

    It will be interesting to find out who the Nissan Pathfinder belongs to and where it came from.

    NYC or a larger US metro center most likely a islamic terrorist, a rural community a white racist.

    Although way any group would want to associate them with such a poor job is beyond me
    Plate was stolen in Connecticut ( not mine) from another vehicle.

    Early reports from store secruity videos show that a 'white' man with a dark or black shirt was seen walking away from the "area".

    Police may have video of possible car bomb suspect

    Police may have video of possible car bomb suspect - CNN.com

    The video "shows a white male in his 40s, in Shubert Alley, looking back in the direction of West 45th Street," Commissioner Ray Kelly told a news conference, adding that the man looked around in a "furtive manner."

    "He also was seen shedding a dark-colored shirt, revealing a red one underneath. He put the darker one into a bag that he was carrying," he said.

    Somehow I doubt authorities would activate an actual incendiary device in such a crowded area as a test. Too reckless.

    I think the meaning is it was a dry run by an organization to view and study how the authorities would react

    Allowing for a future act to be more effective

    It also allows (damn near forces) us to lock down whatever security hole they exploited. Think about airline security, every time some half-assed plot is uncovered we get a new procedure or piece of equipment that may or may not prevent such a thing from happening. People in that area are going to be freaking out about every unattended vehicle now.

    Or #6, the Taliban wasn't actually involved. They need some cred at this point to prove that their network still has teeth, which it doesn't, so they'll say anything to up their threat profile, which at this point is not so threatening.

    Seems more like a small group of sympathizers, or one sympathizer that didn't know what he was doing.

    I'm just glad the bomb didn't go off. Hopefully this doesn't spur another round of security madness in the government to take away more freedoms. "Now we get to search cars without a warrant... you know... in case people have bombs? It's for YOUR safety!"

    You forgot one.

    Terrorists are so stupid, they can't blow up a car properly. What idiots.

    Question:

    Had it gone off, where would we be today?
