NEW YORK - WNBC.com has learned that NYPD and FBI officials are now revisiting an incident that occurred along the Canadian border last month because they are concerned there might be a connection to the Times Square explosion. Four men trying to cross the border tried to flee the checkpoint when Canadian officials tried to question them, investigators said. Two of the men got away, officials said.
The men left behind a backpack with photos of various New York City locations including Times Square, according to sources speaking on condition of anonymity. One of the photos included the military recruitment center, officials said. As a precaution, NYPD outreach officers last month went to various New York City businesses, including the Times Square recruitment center, to investigate if there had been any recent threats. No threat information was known at the time.

4 men crossing...2 got away. My math may be rusty but that implies to me that 2 were caught and perhaps identified/questioned.
sounds like we got two guys that need some waterboarding to me.
Further proof that Michael from (”Meffa, MA)” Bloomberg is an A@@hat and always has been.
His comments are so superfluous as a Mayor he should be ashamed.. but then again Mikey is all about Mikey.
The two will be made members of Parliament in canada.
The article is a bit vague on which side of the border the four were. Canadian black block anarchists? But “two captured” should have been the headline.
Al-Qaida terrorists may be working more urgently to plan an attack on the United States in order to maintain their credibility and ability to recruit followers, the military commander in charge of defending the US said.
Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, who is chief of the US Northern Command, told reporters Thursday that he has not seen any direct threats tied to the US presidential elections. But he said it would be imprudent to think that such threats are not there.
Right now, my money’s on white suburban punk anarchists.
Bet the captured ones were questioned and released.
The Gathering of Eagles, a patriotic organization dedicated to the public support of all Military persons, active duty or veteran, announces a patriotic rally in front of the Times Square Recruiting Station in New York City, NY on March 8 from 1PM to 4PM.
The Police have allowed us a rally at the Times Square Recruiting Station Island, 43rd Street and Broadway, to hold a patriotic rally as a show of encouragement for our troops and our recruiters in New York City.
The action of trying to destroy public property and place the lives and safety of Americans in jeopardy just to make a political point must be answered with the firmest response from Patriotic Americans. In times past, these actions were considered abnormal and best ignored. The actions and national responses to the bombings and protests of the 1960’s and early 1970’s and the failure of Americans to rise up and demand an accounting of those who engage in criminal acts under the false banner of FREE SPEECH led to a national embarrassment at the end of the Vietnam War, and eventually to a Military pullout and subsequent deaths of a Million People when the North Vietnamese broke the Paris Peace Accord treaty and invaded South Vietnam in 1975.
This criminal action against the recruiting station in Times Square has the potential of leading a national downturn in the minds of those who disagree with the war.
It is imperative that Patriotic Americans demand a show of force by law enforcement and Patriotic Groups in calling these acts what they are: cowardice and criminal.

Emboldened by and celebrating the comeback of Shrillery?
The two probably were - what ever a parliament is! *grin*
When will be close that border?! *not grinning*
Oh how I hope they can catch the perp!
Even so, this sounds like something that the bigger dogs would do(like AQ). Call it hyperbole, and we don’t know the motives nor why they would be in such a hurry to do this(then again they are from Canada). I wouldn’t be surprised if it is an Anti-War protestor, though I find it silly how insignificant this person is compared to the soldiers fighting to prevent attacks on our soil.
It is almost like it becomes a “Me Me Me” moment yet the only people who give a crap are the ones who are sick of these Attention Getters. An unnamed backpack wearer on a bike, and that is how it should remain even if we disclose his identity.
The other person might have gotten through to the Consulate(possibly a few activists dealing with our border situations) in Mexico. They are probably white, suburban punks in that it seems to be a milder version of the Weather Underground’s terrorist activities in the late 60s-early 70s. Kind of interesting that one of the Presidential candidates met with their flagship members sometime this decade, eh?
That’s a big 10-4!
If there are know terrorist cells in Canada..and they won’t take care of them..maybe we should send a Predator or the Seals to take them out.
What is Canada going to do?
Me to but, I'm not sure why.
