Exclusive: The Dept. of Homeland Security Uncovered a Plot to Attack Hotels and Restaurants Over a Single Weekend

I have a confidential memo that mecca is about to be bombed out of existence. This will solve all our problems.

How odd that this story ‘surfaces’ just as S510 has just risen from the dead yet again....

And ‘Big Sis’ (who sees no troubles at the southern border, will protect us all.

Forgive the slightest cynicism in light of last night's coincidental surprise Food Safey Modernization Act passage ... if this is indeed a legitimate threat, a heads up is definitely in order.
Main thread here .. other one was a duplicate, and I've asked for it to be removed.
Thanks, Vel. That is something I’ve worried about for quite a long time. It could be so easy to do.

You’re safe with Velveeta.
It would be very easy to do.
The first thing that comes to mind is Vegas.
