JUST what I was thinking, Amish, buggy drivers, speaking Low German, Deutsch, beards, Anabaptists, from Intercourse Pennsylvania and probably planning on blowing something up.

Vely intresting.

I'm sure it's not terror related just like they say. It was probably a pre-shabbat joyride by some Hassids from Brooklyn. Happens all the time on nice summer Friday afternoons around here.

Interesting huh? They can't give us names, origins, motives or anything else for that matter, but they dern sure KNOW it's not terror related.

It was in the water and cruising when LE got to it? No one saw them put it in the water? Was it dark or something when they put it in?

I'm going to go against the common thread here and predict no terror link, for real.

I'm betting some wacky "adventurer/thrill seeker" types, or maybe science nerds on a bender.

“No names and/or where they’re from.”

Usually, if the MSM fails to identify the subject by affiliation, it means he’s a Democrat. But that doesn’t mean these guys couldn’t be Democrats AND terrorists.

Nope sorry, it's terrorist related. Has to be. The government has us all on 'interest watch'. What this amounts to is that if anything is doing anything even remotely out of the ordinary, interesting, etc. by default they must be 'terrorists' and reported to the 'proper authorities'. Invention? New ideas? Without alerting the government?!? Are you mad?

I imagine even when it's proven not to be terrorist related beyond all shadow of a doubt (which it isn't), instead of expressing interest at the ingenuity of these three submariners, some will still call for them to be charged with a trumped up charge.

So much for freedom, we'd rather be safe....

Could be drug related. But until their identities and motives have been established, terrorism must remain very much on the table.

Funny , I was JUST out on the Hudson River yesterday on the Circle Line tour around the island. ( an amazing 3 hour tour if anyone ever comes to NYC, lots of history and some pretty scenery on the north end of the island)
We’ll have to wait on this one. I’m always suspicious when they don’t mention names. If they are Islamics they will call them Asians anyway , not to upset anyone.
