They sure as hell better be testing the water in that reservoir.

Given this warning, they should go on red alert and stake out this site, day and night, for the foreseeable future.
The inquisitive, nocturnal "chemical engineers" should have had tracking devices shoved up their butts.

It will take an unmitigated disaster to wake up the sheeple from their coma of political correctness and passivity.

Boston was not enough. It was not enough to have three innocents out for a nice day killed.
Not enough to have scores maimed for life and wounded.
Not enough to be driven from their homes at gunpoint and herded down the streets by the Keystone cops become jack-booted thugs in search of a skinny ass terrorist.

It will take an unmitigated disaster to rouse the sheeple from their sleep. I don’t know if they have outrage in them or if there are enough of them to make a difference though. Our invasion is just about complete.

Your google map link is terrific. Thank you.

There is no other website that gives information like this and provides for an intelligent (and many times humorous) conversation.

BTW - do you know where the MA command center is in Framingham? I think it’s by the Mass Turnpike.

The Boston bomber, Dzhokhar, was an engineering major who flunked out and changed to biology. Don’t know which engineering path though but the biology interest might mean something. Diaz, his good buddy who hid the evidence, was also an engineering major.

We need names. Maybe someone here is local to this area and would know how to get them. I guess the local FBI had to let them go because they already had a full day’s schedule planned. I’m sure there are lots more teabaggers on Holder and obama’s list who need harassing, doncha know.

Just imagine if this had been Bubba, Bo, Billy Joe and friends. All seven names, complete with Facebook photos, a 10-year personal history, and Mama’s home address would be all over the news by noon today.

Given that I am not hooked-up to the Boston water supply because I live several thousand miles away, I say “This should be interesting”. When a few hundred thousand LIB asshats and their children (or more) die from poisoning maybe...just maybe...the police will then question these moozlum criminals? If nothing else, it should be interesting.

The story says they were trespassing. That would imply that there were fences or keep-out signs or something like that that they ignored. Is that the case? Were these people somewhere that they knew they shouldn’t be? Or is it a big body of water in a rural area and they might skate on the charges because they could say they didn’t know?

Quabbin supplies the drinking water for eastern Massachusetts...including Greater Boston.Looks like jihadis have decided that Massachusetts is a soft target,perhaps because Governor “Coupe Deval”,a very close pal of Osama Obama,has declared the entire state to be a “sanctuary city”.

And by the simple act of getting caught they planted the seed of terrorism. Just think how many people are going to change their crew lives and routine. How many hundreds of thousands if not millions will now be spent on better security and testing by governments that are broke. They will likely close the entire area to recreationist and more of your freedom removed. Mission success.

You're so right. It will be something exactly like this -- an event with long, drawn-out consequences (vs. 2 pressure-cooker bombs) -- that will be used to save him if he's pressured to resign or face impeachment. That's the bad news.

The good news is that enough people are now aware of how he's trying to destroy America, thanks to social media and word-of-mouth. They will not stand for it. He and his Marxist cabal will be crushed. JMHO.

There is no place for Islam in America.

Islam is a totalitarian ideology with a political imperaitive, that is violent, coercive, repressive, and supremacist. It should not be treated as a religion until it reforms itself.

“I wonder how they even found out about this?”

As for how law enforcement caught them in the act, that's something to ponder. I only skimmed the article. Do we know why LE just happened to be out driving in a rural, secluded area at that precise time of night? And when i say precise, that means a very narrow window of time. Curious. Maybe they were under surveillance.

Large water supplies are impossible to effectively pollute with either biological or chemical agents. Dilution and treatment render the agents ineffective. I am not saying they wouldn’t try, but it likely would be a fool’s errand.

Yeah, everyone interested in sight seeing expeditions goes out under the cover of darkness. I wonder what the explantion was for trying to see a huge manmade lake IN DARKNESS.

Given that we're before the first quarter of the moon, there was no moonlight at all after midnight.

And one MORE thing... This happened “shortly after midnight on Tuesday?” How long before the FBI let them go? That was a little over 24 hrs ago. They can do extensive background checks on 7 foreigners from multiple countries that fast? How long could they have been held by LE in that state before being let go because there were no charges other than trespassing? And did they even do any testing on the water before the potential terrorists were freed?

Nothing but questions with no answers.

I live out here, and will barely go near the Quabbin anymore.

I have long suspected is is under constant surveillance, and I don’t even want to be hassled for just walking around.

Now I guess I have my answer.

They are taunting the kafir population, seeking to generate “persecution.”

This is tweaking the nose of the great satan. If someone actually does respond, CAIR will raise a worldwide stink.

They do these things to build a case that they are being persecuted, thus justifying violence under muslim rules of engagement in the future.

They really can’t lose as long as they are recognized as a religion in this country.

My house borders a state forest - they have fire watch towers on look out 24 hrs-if there are a lot of woods around it, that was probably how they noticed movement-they also make chopper runs over state land quite a bit because people love to grow pot on it and “homeless” people squat/camp on it too-

I doubt your description is right. There is a LOT if inaccurate information preceding your post, so I don’t blame you but...

Both the Windsor dam entrance and the Goodnough dike entrance are right on route 9, a two-lane state road that is patrolled regularly by the state police BECAUSE it is a state road. The entrances are nearly 20 (not 10) miles from UMASS/A.C. When I hung out there some, it was a family picnic and day-trip spot around the dam and dike. People would bring sheets of cardboard and “sled” down the grass-covered Windsor dam — great fun. There were picnic areas run by the MDC and in the surrounding woods, old cellar holes (some of which I photographed). You could see old walkways that meandered down into the water. It has been decades, though, so access to the area may have been tightened up lately, esp. after 9/11/2001.

The east side of the reservior (it is a long north-south oriented valley) is extremely rural. The west side, also very rural, is accessible from another main two lane road via “gates” into land around the reservior fishermen and hunters during LIMITED seasons use to access the land and water.

Police patrolling the state road would EASILY seen people at one of the main entrances.
