With the sheer number of Muslim terrorists trying to take out major northeastern metro areas, it makes me wonder how many of them are in rural Arkansas or the mountains of Montana plotting something similar.

Do they go for sheer numbers, or are they concocting the same sort of terror attacks as they perpetrate on Israel?

Ummm, aren't you supposed to have the search warrant before you find the explosives?

I know, reasonable suspicion.... in plain sight from windows....

In order for all of Connecticut to be safe, I think that all people in the Nutmeg State should have to go through invasive body searches as they leave their houses until further notice.

“materials to make homemade bombs “

Anyone with typical cleaning products in their home could be charged.

How do they know what’s inside the home if they haven’t gotten a search warrant yet and are still waiting for the application to be approved? If they entered illegally the evidence will be inadmissable in court to prosecute under criminal law. That’s why we need to have terrorism (warfare) prosecuted under military rules, not civilian.

“Police received a call reporting smoky materials at #17 Hubinger St. at 11:15 p.m. on Wednesday and found what police are calling “improvised explosive devices.”

“Police have crime scene tape around the house and a pickup.”

I remember a time in America, when item 2) would PRECEDE item 1).

"improvised explosive devices."

I think you have to have something a little more significant than a bottle of bleach for this terminology to be relevant.

How do you suppose they found bomb making materials IN the house if they are “waiting for a judge to sign a search warrant application”?

I wonder if "at a home in Connecticut" vs "in a home in Connecticut" is significant.

Maybe the material was found in the trash can, or otherwise on the property, but not in the building?

Don’t react yet until we know all the facts. Remember, this is the same law enforcement and press that calls 50 rounds of ammo in the house a “stockpile” or “arsenal.”

Could just be a badly prepared holiday roast.

Shoot, I'm suspicious of just about every convenience store (and taxi cabs). Oh heck, there I go profiling again.

With the pompus, self-aggrandizing Feds we have today, it could be bad stuff OR it could be a couple boxes of whistling Moon Travelers and a brick of Black Cats.

When I was a kid, I mixed vinegar and baking soda to make a lot of bubbly stuff. Today that would be called a bomb and there would be arrests.

Peter Wells, who lives doors away from the home, said a "few guys" had moved into the residence on Sunday.

New Haven - why does everyone assume a muzzie nut? No Mafia in town?

Check the FBI stats, there are bombings and arson fires aplenty all over the US every year. This Table lists reported bombings and attempts from 1970 to 1999.

I would be happy to post more current data, but it seems the FBI/ATF/FedGov now have a "Center" for such things - and data is on a 'need to know' basis.

Whodda thunk?

Anyway - back to topic, instead of always assuming Muzzie - think - is it a Muzzie or a mob hit/insurance scam/fall out among gang-bangers.

Muzzies don't have an exclusive on violence - they do have a lot of fellow travelers.

Peace, out.

Well, I have a large tank that is electrically heating up a batch of Dihydrogen Monoxide that is just waiting for the right time.

I had to use some of it to take a shower this morning, but it’ll be ready to go shortly!

“And here I thought it was the Amish.”


That’s silly. The Amish are a more moderate strain of radical Christianity. It must have been the Mennonites.
