LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- The FBI has issued an alert to 350 law enforcement agencies in the southwest and Salt Lake City for potential Valentine teddy bear bombs after a suspicious transaction at a Wal-Mart last month.
Law enforcement sources said authorities also were on the alert at airports in case the suspected bear-bombs might be carried onto airplanes on Valentine's Day.
The FBI said a clean-shaven male, possibly of Middle Eastern descent, purchased nine Valentine teddy bears, 20 inches tall, and 14 canisters of propane, 9 inches tall, small enough to fit inside the teddy bears. The man also bought 12 packets of BBs -- small, round projectiles usually fired from air guns.
He paid in cash on January 15 at the Wal-Mart in

Vermont bear bombers?
Vermont Teddy Bears! Now that is outside of the box. EEKS.
Sounds like one of those box cutter tricks.
Where’s the Bear? No Picture!
And this last week especially on Speed Channel I have seen nothing but commercials about those Vermont Teddy Bears, I think its going to blow up in their faces quite literally.
Of course its the Islamic intellect, they only think of media inspired images like WTC etc.
The sooner we accept the real fact that Islamic genocide is NOT out of the question the sooner we can deal with them.
There goes Wal-Mart Racially profiling against the “ROP” again...
About time for a multi-billion dollar lawsuit from CAIR isn’t it? - That’ll straighten them out! /s
I wonder if the bears have a little string you pull that’ll make them say “Islam is the light”?
Then again they just might holler “Allahu Achbar!” - *KA-BOOM*!!!
Why are they still trying to blow us up?
Didn’t Osama say that he would bring America down financially, not tactically?
Personally, I can’t but wonder if he and Barry Soetoro aren’t working on the same agenda... and it’s working like a charm.
One can assume that this is the case...just by understanding the nature of the threat.
I'm so glad they included the explanation. I would not have known what those small round projectiles were called.
Nuts & bolts-- cylindrical objects, small, 1-3 three inches in length with various diameters usually projected from ARAB TERRORIST bombs with great speed and destructive power.
Have been known to be used in various construction projects.
Wait till Obama’s Hamas buddie are relocated here by the thousands.
I’ve never heard any follow-up to the story shortly after 9/11, of a family who was stopped at airport security screening because the Xray detected a small gun inside a teddy bear carried by their small child. The family was cleared quickly, after telling investigators that the bear had been given to their child as a last-minute going away gift by another young child who’d been staying at the same hotel and playing with their child. Apparently that story, as well as the stopped family’s background, checked out solidly, plus they’d made no attempt at all to avoid having the bear screened, and the gun was plainly visible. But I’ve never heard of investigators ever located the gift-giver and what the rest of the story was. Anybody ever hear any more about that?
Teddy bear bombers? Were they named Muhammad?
What NO PAJAMA GRAM ATTACHED?
story was 2/14/2002
But the bears have really, really long fuses on them. :P
A man who would do something like this is truly sick.
I just re-read the header - sure looks like ‘09 to me!
Wanna bet the part about “Middle eastern” gets dropped on the evening news?
But .. the BB’s could be used in the bombs as a projectile to inflict damage.
In other terror attacks (a lot in Israel), the bombs are loaded with broken glass and other sharp projectiles to inflict as much damage as possible.
When is the public going to realize these terrorists want us to DIE ..??????
“A man who would do something like this is truly sick.”
Well, islam is truly, truly sick. So there you go.
IT's actually the only solution. It is their goal. They will do it to us, if we allow them to retain their breathing privileges.
Ban the queeran!
This story is from Feb 2002...
Those blasted Amish are at it again.

Well, this would be kind of comic if it weren’t for all those recent reports about religious police arrests and honor killings in connection with Valentine’s Day, which is greatly hated by Muslims.
Radical Islam has been killing people since 600 AD. Feb 2002 is relatively recent history.
