As authorities search for three missing trucks in New York City in Washington, Dulles Airport has been partially evacuated after a bomb-sniffing dog alerted authorities Saturday night. A Transportation Security Administration told CNN that a dog sounded the alert when cargo was being loaded into an aircraft. Virginia State Police are on the scene. Explosive teams are at B Concourse area at Dulles investigated a number of canisters but found no explosives or anything harmful. Tonight CNN is reporting that there are three vans missing in New York City, two of which were taken from a company that worked at Ground Zero over a week ago. The third is a U-Haul that was stolen on August 21 from a Jersey City, New Jersey location. The theft of the U-Haul was planned with cut lines to phones and surveillance cameras. This information comes in just days after the White House announced that there is a credible threat from terrorists set for the anniversary of September 11, 2001. The three stolen vans in NYC have been added to the NYPD database because of the threat, still unconfirmed but credible. There are also two missing U-Haul vans in the Washington D.C. area. It is thought that two of three suspects have traveled to the United States in the last week. These subjects speak English and have common names. Police in New York City are on 12-hour shifts and extra personnel have been called in to New York and Washington.

Strange yes but why would the muzzies steal vehicles?
Instead of raising red flags - since they have the money - they could just rent or buy them, possibly from private parties.

My thought exactly, easy to buy/rent a van with litle money down, after comitting sueside, no worry about making payment

More on all of this...
New York — Two vans stolen from a World Trade Center site contractor and a third taken from a storage facility in New Jersey were being specially investigated by the police department Saturday, after the federal government's tip of a possible car bomb on the 9/11 anniversary. None of the thefts were connected to a specific plot, but had unusual circumstances above the average stolen vehicle, authorities said. One of the vans, a white Econoline, was stolen from Liberty Storage, a self-storage facility in Jersey City, N.J. on Aug. 21 and had Oklahoma plates, police said. Thieves cut the phone lines, alarms and took with them surveillance video, in what could be an extensive effort to cover their tracks in a way that seemed different from the average grand larceny. The other two, dark green Chevy vans, were stolen Sept. 1 and Sept. 2 from Tully Construction, Co. Contractors, which has been involved in recovery work at the site and is currently doing roadwork on West St. near 1 World Trade Center. The first van was stolen at an entrance ramp to the Long Island Expressway in Queens at about 3 a.m. on Sept. 1. The assigned driver was out of the vehicle and it was stolen, possibly with the keys in it, police said. The next night, at about 9:30 p.m., the stolen van was driven to a storage area used by Tully in Queens. At least three people are believed to have broken into lockers at the site, making off with roughly $70,000 worth of tools and stealing a second van from the location, police said. "These may be nothing more than industry-savvy thieves with an appetite for expensive construction tools but they're receiving greater scrutiny in order to eliminate the possibility of something more sinister," said Paul Browne, the department's chief spokesman. The two green vans had a red stripe on the body and a yellow turret light. No arrests have been made, and the vans have not been recovered. Tully Construction was one of four contractors chosen to perform the clean up after the World Trade Center buildings collapsed. A message left with the company was not returned Saturday. A call to Liberty Storage was also not returned. Police in New York have been on a heightened state of security since Thursday evening after federal officials said they were chasing a credible but unconfirmed al-Qaida threat to use a car bomb on bridges or tunnels in New York or Washington. Patrols were extended. Police set up vehicle checkpoints at bridges and tunnels, were sweeping parking garages and towing more illegally parked cars. More radiation detection equipment was being used, as well as license plate readers. Calls of suspicious packages and vehicles were up, but all were false alarms, police said. Detectives were talking to truck rental companies, fertilizer retailers and businesses that sell components that could be used to make bombs. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano met with Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly on Saturday at Police Headquarters in lower Manhattan where they discussed the security measures. Kelly brought Napolitano through the department's newly-constructed Joint Operations Center.

Ryder cancels ALL truck rentals and then the next day there is a sophisticated theft of 2 Rental Trucks from U-Haul.

This is not a coincidence. I suspect that Ryder had information that one of their truck rental reservations was a likely terrorist and they then cancelled every single reservation nationwide. Then 2 UHaul trucks get stolen.

Something is going to happen. And with Janet Napalitano in charge how safe do you feel?
