March 26, 2008 The FBI is now involved in the theft of a car after it was found in Los Lunas with an explosive device and Iraqi currency inside.FBI agents say that they have ruled out terrorism.

The car was reported stolen last week. After the theft, the car’s owner was fueling his motorcycle when he spotted his stolen car.

Yes, I am sure whoever it was had a legitimate reason for this.

I’m sure it was a bunch of Swedish currency traders taking a friend to his job in a hard rock mine where he was going to use the bomb for blasting. What other explanation could there be?

FBI agents say that they have ruled out terrorism.

And yet, we have this brilliant statement from the police captain:

"We don’t know what their intentions were,” said Nuanes. “We don’t know what they were planning on doing with any of this.”

You know it’s just some good old boys who accidently took the car for a joyride and decided to make their own fireworks for fun. Iraqi currency was just some money those boys mistakenly got as change when they bought beer and cigarettes.

I’m as baffled about this one as you are, but something is stinking to high heaven. An Iraqi terrorist scam by anti-war activists?...or is it from pro-war activists?

There's something seriously wrong when the FBI rules out terrorism before they even arrive on the scene. I bet the guy with the stolen car was surprised to hear it wasn't terror related before the FBI had a chance to search the car. It almost makes me think the feds are trying to hide terror related incidents when they rule out terrorism immediately after discovering Iraqi money and bombs in a Southwestern state.

Sounds like a pretty stupid “possible terrorist” if they would bring Iraqi money into the US.

It’s important to rule out terrorism before you start the investigation. Very reassuring.

You can buy new (after 2003) and old Iraqi currency on Ebay.

Maybe the Iraqi currency was supposed to be the ‘statement’ as it blew all over wherever the bimb was to detonate.

I think ‘not related to terrorism’ means ‘don’t report this under pain of X’.

Add this to the request by the FBI for information from anyone who has information about parachutes from the 1970’s. That was for DB Cooper. What, the FBI clowns can’t locate a contact? What, the FBI doesn’t know terrorism when it smacks them in the arse.

Of course if the car had an NRA sticker and Idaho plates, well THAT would be different. They’d mobilize every jackbooted thug in a SWAT costume for miles around.

"After the theft, the car’s owner was fueling his motorcycle when he spotted his stolen car."

OT: in perhaps an even stranger coincidence, I know someone whose husband had his pickup truck stolen (well hers too but she normally drove a different vehicle). Anyway, just a few days later she was driving through a neighborhood she had never had cause to be in before, FIFTY miles from her home, and "lo and behold" spotted the very stolen pickup truck in a driveway there. The coincidence was unreal, she had no particular reason to be in that neighborhood, was just cutting through on a street she didn't know at all. Anyway, she called the police and the whole thing got straightened out. Don't know what happened to the thieves though.......

Yeah, when I was a teenager I had stacks of foreign currencies...not to mention bombs that I would make, just to leave them laying around in stolen vehicles...just for the attention and kick I got...

Judging by the rest of your post......Crips, Bloods... etc. I doubt this response is even worth posting, other than for my own entertainment...at your expense, of course.
