NEW YORK New York City police investigating a botched car bombing in Times Square say the bomb contained fertilizer that was incapable of exploding.
Top police spokesman Paul Browne says more than 100 pounds of a substance found in the back of an SUV parked on a busy city street near a theater showing "The Lion King" was fertilizer.
But unlike the ammonium nitrate grade fertilizer that has been used in terror attacks including the Oklahoma City bombing, Browne says this fertilizer would not have caused a massive explosion.

always bring in a farmer.
To me, it sounds like a liberal charade to take the heat off Barack and put it on the tea partiers.
Then everything is ok.Thank goodness.../s
I predict there will be an arrest tomorrow, and it will be the owner of the SUV, who is a moron. (He tried to eradicate the VIN numbers. Real terrorists who steal a vehicle don’t care about VIN numbers much.)
and yet, they spend how much studying cow farts ???????????
lol. Right they wouldn’t worry about the VIN on a vehicle they are about to blow up.
Stupid is as stupid does, sir.
Great... now we are going to have to show ID and prove we have a lawn before purchasing fertilizer at Home Depot.
Is there a training camp for "special" terrorists?
Yes, it is a remedial training camp.
So what was it? A load of BS? It must have been made in congress.
The would-be bomber’s stunning incompetence is a little too convenient for me.
When they finally get him, I want to know if he was hired to do the job.
Anyway, they probably didn’t consider the EIN (engine ID number), which is tied to the VIN.
There’s an affirmative action school of terrorism.
You don’t suppose this guy was just the private contractor hired to dispose of two years worth of “the wisdom of Pelosi” do you? Maybe he couldn’t find a landfill that’d take it.
Nah... JUST 200 pounds? Couldn’t be.
They are going to hang this failed bomb on some fat, white guy who was allegedly seen at a Tea Party rally. The construction of the device was so botched it seems almost like a set up and some sad nutter was talked into driving it to Times Square. I know, you think I wear a tin foil hat to bed, but I really don’t trust our present government.
Remember Putin in Russia won his second election after some apartment houses blew up in Moscow. Many there blame the Russian security services for it, not the Chechnya resistance.
