But guess what else? Police are saying that the main suspect is not connected to the Taliban at all, but a white guy, probably a homegrown terrorist.The would-be car-bomber who left an SUV loaded with propane and gas cans, fireworks and timing devices on a Times Square street also had more than 100 pounds of fertilizer, but not the kind that would explode, police said today.
Instead of ammonium nitrate, the kind of fertilizer used by Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, the person who abandoned the van on the crowded New York City street had a metal gun locker full of a harmless fertilizer, New York City Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said.
When this story first broke, I noticed that something was a little off, especially when it appeared that this bombing attempt was pretty amateurish. I said then to look for homegrown terrorists. Looks like I was right. Whoever attempted to set this one off is a Timothy McVeigh wannabe.Police are looking for white male in his 40s who was seen leaving the area near the SUV and shedding a dark shirt, revealing a red shirt underneath, about a half block from where survellance cameras saw the vehicle entering Times Square at about 6:28 p.m. Saturday, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
Like I have said throughout the years, I believe the most dangerous terrorists to the US are going to be the homegrown ones that you might find in the KKK, at Stormfront, or within any number of hate groups. For them, knowing that there are people in the Mideast who hate us, and also knowing that many in the US hate Middle Easterners, they believe that they can bring their hatred for others to a head by running a false flag operation, then demand that their hateful agendas be adopted.
Like the old saying goes, keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer. That shouldn't be too hard, since some of our enemies are right here in our own back yard.
