I called this a looong time ago. A pssenger train derailment yeilds mass casualties. Hazmat wrecks cause major local disruptions. Even simultaneous freight derailments around the country would create a lot of economic ripples.

“Bin Laden Notebook Reveals Plot for 10th Anniversary of 9/11”
Posted May 6th, 2011 by USNavySeals

SNIPPET: “A notebook found in the hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where terrorist leader Osama bin Laden was found and killed, revealed plans to stage another terrorist attack in the United States to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The New York Times reported that the handwritten notebook was among the first documents retrieved from the Al Qaeda hideout that were translated from Arabic and analyzed. The notebook was from February 2010, and talked of tampering with the U.S. railroad system. The plans involved derailing a train on a bridge...”

OPINION:

Public transportation and public places and large events — jihadis find those appetizing targets.

That said, this is somewhat breaking news and at this time, with the little info available...suspect(s) seem to be unknown.

Don’t worry, folks, we’re on it. Force was apparent everywhere Thursday. Even saw a crew walking station platforms with backpack (geiger-counter ?)

“two bottles with a yellow liquid inside”

Those sound more like “trucker bombs” to me!
Snowplow drivers throw them out the window all night long.

My first thought, too, until I read about the duct tape and wires... don’t think you need that to go to the bathroom! :/

Sounds like a local Muzz inspired by Muzzie protests against the offing of Obama, er, I mean Osama.

Lovely. We should expel every last one from the United States. I do not want to sacrifice our freedom because of Muslim sensitivities.

I do not think that is cruel in any way. We are the 'Great Satan' to them and they want us to submit. Their own words are enough for me. Toss them out before it is too late.

With the information (hard drives and paperwork) having been captured by the SEALs, it gives cause for the cockroaches to be scattering.

I hope the FBI and other agencies are watching various ‘locations’ outside the Middle East to see who is scurrying and what is being scoured.

I have a feeling that many Imams, even within the USA, are sweating.

That info probably contains plans, organizational structure, names, phone numbers, addresses, etc. It is probably ‘hotter’ than Hillary’s 900 FBI files.
