Pressure Cooker Discovered At Dearborn Hotel (Univ. of Muslim Assoc. of America banquet canceled)
WWJ-TV ^ | May 27, 2013

Posted on 05/27/2013 4:33:19 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

DEARBORN-Police in Dearborn are trying to understand why a pressure cooker was left in the restroom of the Adoba Hotel, forcing the evacuation of guests until the early morning hours.

The evacuation also canceled Sunday night’s banquet of the University of Muslim Association of America.

Asgar Zaidi of Washington D.C. has been attending the organization’s conference for the past 11 years. He says it’s the first time it’s ever been held in Dearborn.

“We all look forward to this time of year, Memorial Day weekend … we have fun, we learn and it’s just disheartening to see this type of stuff happen here,” said Zaidi.

The pressure cooker discovered at the hotel was detonated by police as a precaution, but contained no explosives.

Dearborn officers have determined that the pressure cooker had not been converted into any type of explosive device.

Pressure cookers were used in the bombings at the Boston Marathon....

Maybe one of them didn't get a chance to marry-up the explosives with the pressure cooker? Or maybe they were going to hold a training class? Makes more sense than being planted there by a "bigot" or something.

I long for days when a pressure cooker was used to can fruits and vegetables...or to cook a delectable meatloaf. :(

Gone with the wind I guess.

Just a training program and a test of response for Dearbornistan (largest Muslim population in the Midwest). The Muslims want to see how the authorities will respond so in July they will have all the contingencies worked out so as to inflict mass casualities

Psychological warfare. For the next year, all you need to do is leave a pressure cooker someplace, and the bomb squad will be called.

They can’t figure out why?
I’d say it had exactly the effect it was supposed to. The muslims had to call off their ‘banquet’.

What better day to learn how to make a pressure cooker bomb than on the day we remember our glorious dead. They’re upset they didn’t get the chance to learn how to kill a lot of people at once.

Very easy...and in my youth that is how we always cooked one. It kept from heating up the house..no a/c. :) In fact, if I still had a pressure cooker (nod, nod, wink, wink) that’s how I would cook one.

Make the meatloaf up as normal. If I had a pressure cooker,lol, most came with a raised platform so the juices would drain. Cook for about 15 minutes. The smell of it cooking makes me crazy...super moist but still retains the “loaf” texture.

A pot roast, corned beef/cabbage/potatoes, other cuts of meat etc, in a pressure cooker, which is now pretty much replaced by the CrockPot. I bake meatloaf. It’s turn into baby food liquid in a pressure cooker.

I think you're right. That has been their MO all along.

That's why I think they had a "scare" before the Marathon....people noticed there had been many dogs checking things out.

If you can’t handle the pressure cooker, find an oven mit.

Nah..CH..you may be cooking it on high too long. Just bring it to the “spiffle” stage and turn it down. I have never had one turn to babyfood...and truthfully never eaten one cooked any other way.

When I was a kid we always cooked outside or used a pressure cooker (or presto cooker as my granny called it) to keep the house cool. Winter..the stove kept the house warm. I have cooked almost everything in mine.

It was a very respectable precursor to the microwave and crockpot and retains flavor well.

FrdmLvr..I think I’ll make one this week as well. It’s been a while and I do love cold meatloaf sandwiches! Don’t get me started on homemade grape jelly!

(Wow! what a thread drift...from bombs to meatloaf!)

Something muslim was interrupted? Boo-hoo... Maybe if the gabajillions of moderate muslims would speak out against the one or two incredibly, extremely rare and isolated cases that haven’t really been proven to be connected to Islam anyway, then things like this would not happen.

No thanks. The "timeless patriot" decided she was going to cozy up to her New England liberal pals Christie, Romney et al and try to foist them on conservatives. And whenever she realized people weren't buying it, she started bashing conservatives to include the Tea Party.

Coulter is nothing more than a two-bit attention whore that says whatever she thinks will get someone to buy her books.

Some anonymous person should leave pressure cookers at every mosque in every country so they can undergo the fright of thinking they are getting blown to bits. We do nothing to them and they try to kill us. Let them worry.

“How do you cook a meatloaf in a pressure cooker???”

I am old so this was long ago - my mother used the pressure cooker to make a meat loaf on Sunday after church and it had marvelous gravy in it and in a separate bowl there was her canned whole tomatoes. And, there was always cornbread at lunch and “supper” as it was called then.

My wife used to can beef & onions in pint jars, plus kidney beans in quart jars. I’d head into the bush in Uganda with several jars of each, plus a small pressure cooker.

I’d open one jar of each, heat and have dinner. Leftovers in the pressure cooker were closed up and brought up to pressure, then set aside with the weight still in place. Voila! Sterilized and ‘re-canned’!

I could keep food safe as long as necessary to finish the batch. Wash the empty pressure cooker, then start a new batch.

Pressure cooker = great tool!

Last year I had to move some things from another house to this one. My pressure cooker was on of those things. It was a big move for me by myself and I got very tired putting things up. The pressure cooker has wound up in a box under my desk downstairs in the living area.

That desk is not far from the chair I am sitting in, so the pressure cooker is not far from me on the floor under that desk. My concern is, will the pressure cooker get ticked off and blow up on its own? I have paid no attention to it so it is probably lonely. I think these things are alive. I think I need my psychotic medication now. :o)

"Just a training program and a test of response for Dearbornistan (largest Muslim population in the Midwest). The Muslims want to see how the authorities will respond so in July they will have all the contingencies worked out so as to inflict mass casualties"

Could well be.

Or maybe someone(s) trying to give the Muslims a taste of terror, the non-Muslim way.

Maybe. I'm kinda' thinking your theory has a lot of merit.
