At the top of the hour news just a few minutes ago (10 p.m. EDT), the CNN anchor said that CNN has learned the U.S. is on alert for car bombs at East Coast airports, then moved on to general reporting about the failed car bombing of Times Square.

Nothing more.

"WHY would ANYONE want to car bomb the East Coast Airports???"

Because they're right wing tea baggers? Right wing Amish? Right wing Methodists? Right wing (...don't worry, we'll eventually get there...) Presbyterians? Right wing Lutherans? Right wing Mennonites? Right wing...

They're TRYING, but they won't succeed.

And those that blame us will forever be known as lying vermin. They will be their own undoing if they try to blame patriotic Americans for what's going on now.

That 'white' guy in NY must really be getting around.

Oh, did I hear airports? Didn't our so called PINO (president in name only) order the TSA (or whatever group does security at airports) to drop all extra careful vetting of people flying to America from the Middle East?

We are in such deep trouble.

Does uhbama WANT US to have to be fearful everyo day like so many who live with muslim terrorists? What is WRONG with him?

I often wondered why the terrorists haven’t been emboldened to car bomb throughout America. Now that they have a”friend” in the White House, apparently they are becoming emboldened. So much for a relaxing day shopping at the mall and so forth. Thanks all you liberal dipsh**s who voted this quisling and his minions into power. Question of the day: when the terrorists blow up you and your children will you feel this is merely an acceptable expression of their rights under the Constitution?

U.S. On Alert for Car Bombs at East Coast Airports

Why would the government care kristinn?

It's the same government that allowed in and rolled out the red carpet for tens of thousands of Muslims to enter the U.S. legally.

The U.S. now has Muslims circling all of our major airports in taxi cabs.

And now they tell us there is a threat?

This is a joke right?

lol...

Living in the veritable center of Afghan population in North America let me be among the first to note that MANY Afghan men and women are "white folks".

Some of them are obviously "Mongol" and others are clearly South Asian type Indians, East Asian type Chinese, and so on.

They look an awful lot like Americans!

Here is a link about this attempted bombing. It was two alert street vendors who pointed out the car to the police. One suggestion was that it was near the station to shows South Park which is accused of insulting Islam by showing Mohammed in a bear costume:

If you were a terrorist those malls and stadiums and airports must look mighty tempting. Interstate overpasses?
Schools? Prisons? Courthouses? Police Stations?

People don’t realize that “afghans” are actually members of various ethnicity.

and if you believe MSNBC and Bill Maher, the intelligence regarding airports and car bombs must be coming from RightWingChatSites...

There’s an oil spill the size of Puerto Rico floating around in the gulf which Obama took 10 days to respond to and now all of a sudden, there are all these bomb threats. We’re being manipulated.

The only thing 'wrong' is all the people who refused before the election to believe what was in front of their eyes - that he is an American hating, bred, born and raised muzzie, narcissistic POS -

Other than that, he's a stella guy...

I can get pissed at my neighbor and threaten to beat his ass and the law will show up and charge me with terrorist threats, but if I leave my SUV in Times Square with a bomb, nobody (Napolitano, etc.) can bring themselves to call it an act of terror.

Brief story up at CNN:

The Transportation Security Administration on Sunday ramped up security screening at airports along the East Coast after an attempted car bombing a day earlier in New York's Times Square, a Department of Homeland Security official said.

The official told CNN the TSA has begun operations to counter potential car bombs, or "vehicle-born improvised explosive devices," as well as taking measures to prevent other kinds of terrorist acts that might occur in crowded public spaces.

[gasp] You mean... right wing bear hunters?

...Seriously, yes, I read that report earlier (here on FR of course). The vehicle was parked right outside Viacom's head office, Viacom being the media conglomerate which owns Comedy Central.

Just like the London failed car bomb....the next day the bombers hit the airport!

Maybe the vid of the white male suspect did not pan out?

And did you hear what the tourist’s vid showed? Have they said yet?

Thanks!

Jackson said he looked in the car and saw keys in the ignition with 19 or 20 keys on a ring. He said he alerted a passing mounted police officer.

Who Keeps that many keys on a ring, and leaves them in a car to burn?
