Good news. Would not have wanted that to fall into the wrong hands.

Did they find Biden’s intelligence in it, by any chance?

He can’t seem to find it when he speaks.

Since it was equipment for Detroit, it was probably full of bullet proof vests.

What, Biden didn’t receive the VIP, UAV’s in the sky, wiretaps, stop light camera footage, rolling homee’s treatment?

I guess, unlike Dick Cheney, Biden, I guess, has no “gravitas”.

They did, and quickly destroyed it. When he speaks, that is his intelligence.

Biden was in a panic. That truck had his backup hair plugs and his depends in it.

Strange. What kind of equipment would he need to carry around with him? Teleprompter?

I don’t know anything about such technology, but, from what I have seen of them on TV, it looks as if a teleprompter could be disassembled and carried in a bag no larger than a suitcase.

Seriously, what could be in there? I guess it could be some sort of bullet-proof barrier and a matching podium.

Got my curiosity arroused....

Shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles, automatic weapons, radios with scramblers, body armor. Nothing to worry about falling into the hands of the muzzies in Dearborn or the gangbangers in Dee-troit.

"The original story said Holiday Inn."

Maybe it was Biden who was lost. He ended up at the wrong hotel.

CNN is reporting the only items missing were a clown suit and floppy shoes.

If you parse the AP story carefully, is says that ‘Donovan had said that there were no weapons on board.’ There’s no time qualification on that; I’ll give them that there were no weapons on board when the statement was made. Were there weapons when the truck was stolen? That isn’t clear. And if you want to parse a bit more, they don’t say that there were no weapons on board, only that Donovan SAID that there were no weapons on board.

And, of course, we know that the government would never lie to us.

Too bad Biden wasn’t IN that truck when it vanished!

I imagine the conversation might have gone something like this: "We will be returning Biden in time for his speech at the DNC unless you deliver $10 million in unmarked bills, nothing smaller than $50's to a location we will disclose later."

Sounds like Biden just forgot where he parked and reported the vehicle stolen.

Maybe the thieves wanted to use it for an ACORN project selling hotdogs out of one side of the truck, while having beds in the ruck and prostitutes or entertainers as they called them, getting clients on the other side of the truck ala the movie starring Dan Ackroid, Dr. Detroit. Had the Secret Service not found the truck, Biden maybe could have also collected from the insurance and used the cash proceeds to help the Obama campaign.

Good analysis, FRiend. With this Soros Administration, who knows?

Perhaps it was just a planned gun transfer as part of Fast and Furious, Part II.
