—Must be a big package. Hope it’s a false alert.—

As your comment demonstrates, it’s Twitter, and it’s hard to tell what’s going on.

I misread that and thought it said “Stimulus Package”.

OH.... I have a feeling that this was ‘planned’, and they will keep the area (DOJ and FBI) shut down until after the July 4 Holiday.

Time will tell...

Didn’t they pull this act yesterday or the day before at the protest near the White Hut?

I hope it is a false alarm too. My son has a summer job at the Archives. A block away.

This looks like a anti-protest strategy to me.

Any protest the Obama administration doesn't like, such as the Fire Eric Holder protest. They simply announce a suspicious package and close the streets. They may even have an operative place a suspicious package

Thus it's hard to level anti-free-speech charges at them, because they aren't preventing the protest so much as they are protecting people from the suspicious package.

Prior to, and during, any protest in that area, keep the video cameras rolling (ya know, to help the feds with their investigation should a package magically appear ...)

There will be “suspicious” packages found anywhere within a hundred miles of any Fire Eric Holder protest, courtesy of the Secret Service.

It is probably a box of WH vegetables, compliments of Mooch.

Will we soon need a “Green Zone” in DC for the protection of our politician’s and elites from the masses who are suffering under their policies?
At least we now know how to break up leftist demonstrations..

As opposed to not even bothering to placE a package and just announcing that there is one even though there isn't.

Just Bam’s folks cleaning out their office. The package most likely constains an American flag, a bible, a copy of the constitution and a copy of the Declaration of Independence.

The first “suspicious package” event was orchestrated by the Secret Service (whether it was planted by them, or not). This is the subsequent training exercise for the D.C. Police in case they, too, need to disperse a Tea Party crowd.

Re “It seems that Democrat Presidents lately come with suspicious packages”. And an attached sign that says
“DON”T TOUCH MY JUNK”.

Meanwhile, the Republicans are looking for some balls. Being a political eunuch in an election year is no way to go through life.
