“A suspicious” boat, Fox News is reporting. A stone’s throw from the memorial activities currently underway.

What???? The only thing a boat in the Potomac could do is blow a bridge, or set off a dirty bomb. Not much of an immediate threat to human life in the immediate area.

A dirty bomb from a boat would be dumb. It would make more sense to do it from a plane.

“Potamic” is a misspelling of Potomac I presume?

It's spelled 'Potowmack'.

Ask George Washington. He'll tell you all about it.

I'd not be surprised if it's AQ related to support OBOZO and give him a new "crisis".

Could be a position to fire on flights from Reagan National or on Obama’s helicopter.

Yes it would. A bridge would be the only target, unless the boat was carrying terrorists that intended to disburse. If that is the case, they probably already have buddies in place all around the city.
