O’Hare now being checked.
If they were going to blow up these planes, they would have blown them up in the skies over the cities to inflict maximum casualties.
I think it’s a diversion, also.
I also think these four shootings at the Pentagon, Marine Museum and recruiting stations might have been some sort of “go” order.
OMG! Thanks for the ping. I think they are planning something for our elections
BBC chimes in with clearer information....
Two East Midlands Airport alerts over suspect itemParts of East Midlands Airport have been sealed off twice following the discovery of a suspicious package.
Emergency services were called to the Donington site at about 0330 BST and evacuated a distribution centre.
The area was reopened just before 1000 BST but a cordon was re-imposed just before 1400 BST so the package could be re-examined “as a precaution”.
Airport authorities said public areas had continued to operate throughout the incident.
A police spokesman said: “The package is being re-examined as a precaution and as such the cordons that were originally put in place have been reinstated as a precaution.
“This has meant that a freight distribution building and a number of offices have been closed together with internal airport roads - Beverley Road and Argosy Road.”
Emergency services have not given details of why the package was re-examined after being declared safe.
Most UPS planes fly through a central-hub, probably Europe in this case.
“free trade” and the G20.
It’s the possible radiological and/or biological material that scares the hell out of me.
Hey stop using up all that red toner ink for your eyesore postings. < /sarcasm>
It won’t help the Dems. But if the attack is bad enough and widespread enough, the elections will be postponed.
Those people tested negative for hazardous materials.
The plane at Newark has not been identified.
Officials say they are taking these precautions due to an incident that happened overnight. A cargo flight flying from Yemen to Chicago, stopping at London, was checked when it landed and crews found a toner cartridge that had been tampered with and changed, but tested negative for explosive materials. Now they are taking no chances and are looking at similar cargo flights, especially those coming from Yemen into the United States.
How long until we hear from 0?
Will he go live on Comedy Central? : o /
Funny how “no comment” yet from the White House....Alright, not so funny!
“A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation said officials found something suspicious on a cargo plane in Birmingham, England. But test results for explosives were negative.”
I was just thinking the same thing.
On the Stewart interview without teleprompter he was ahhhhh
ahhhhhhh um um um
I’m cublicle bound- unable to turn on tv- thanks for updates
That’s good, and lends to the theory this may have been a diversion, or just somebody doing a shoddy job of re-manufacturing toner cartridges.
So, is the jack-ass in chief golfing?
Is there a law giving the Federal govt the right to suspend elections?
UPS package tracker was down yesterday when I attempted to track a shipment ... perhaps a coincidence.
