    Police are looking for a white male in his 40s.

    That really narrows it down.

    Re: Who is behind the New York Times Square car bomb?

    Update from the BBC: BBC News - Failed car bomb was not al-Qaeda plot, says NY mayor

    Major points:
    1)The engine was still running with hazard lights flashing when the SUV, emitting smoke, attracted the attention of a street vendor.

    2)Another component of the device was a rifle cabinet packed with more than 100lb (45kg) of fertilizer, although police said it was not of a type volatile enough to explode.

    3)"That's when the smoke started coming out and then we heard the little pop, pop, pop - like firecrackers going out," he said. Duane Johnson, local hand bag seller who if was not the first to spot the car was the first to approach it.

    4)Commissioner Kelly said they were looking for an unidentified white man, thought to be in his 40s.

    5)They(the car plates) belonged to a car owner in the state of Connecticut, who told officers he had sent the plates to a scrap-yard.

    So everything about this so far points to some yokel hillbilly "terrorist" if he even had a goal which could be defined as terrorist. Compounding on what I said earlier this information, the rifle cabinet isn't something you find in New York often. And assuming the owner of those registration plates didn't send them cross country, the guy went to some local scrapyard, meaning I'd start my investigation into the area and people from around that scrapyard. There's a good chance that given the amateurish nature of this "attack" that the wanta-be bomber is a local of whatever scrapyard those were sent to. In fact the fore-thought to not use plates directly registered to him is probably the only "positive mark" this bomb attack gets.

    The fertilizer also shows that this guy didn't know what he was doing AND did not rehearse, every good terrorist and criminal knows you practice before the big show. Again, either he's not smart or he doesnt have the funds/motivation to build two of these "devices."

    Lastly I really want to find out what kind of fire was going on in this vehicle, I have a very strong hunch that this guy started a small fire in the SUV and expected the thing to explode in seconds, as some reports say he was caught on camera running, even sprinting, from the SUV. Starting a small fire would also explain the popping sound heard by Mr. Johnson and the police, the first thing that would be lit and go off would be the fuses on firecrackers and fireworks. The other three things in the SUV were the propane tanks, which would not have lit first, the fertilizer, which was never going to go off anyway, and the black powder, which I haven't heard of recently and I'm thinking may not have actually been in the SUV, but the jury's out on that.

    If there was black powder that probably would have gone off before the guy could run far enough away, maybe he did rehearse and discovered that(I can picture this guy doing a trail of powder like Loony Toons cartoon). Also black powder does not explode just on its own, it burns extremely fast, the only time it "explodes" is when its in a confined space. And once it has an exit, most of the pressure is released through that exit, rather than tearing new exits. So unless this guy has filled up every spar inch of his SUV with powder, it would just create a massive fire, but short lived, with a few explosions of propane when the gas was released. HOWEVER even that wouldn't have been effective at causing deaths, not that its especially dangerous to anyone even 20 feet away, because of the fireworks. Just like we saw, those things are going to go off first and act as warning rather than cause any damage.


    My vote is saying with nutcase with nutcase agency, although I still could see this guy being politically motivated, probably right wing.
