Three missing trucks being sought in New York City
Digital Journal ^ | 09/10/11 | KJ Mullins

Posted on 09/10/2011 8:12:34 PM PDT by markedmannerf

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.

can’t really post anything right now, as an endless stream of obscenities is racing through my mind when I think those bastards, after everything they’ve done, are trying to add to it.

Trucks are stolen everyday.

The radiation “false” alarm would concern me more. If its a dirty bomb it might already be out of the area.

I dont know. Why would they care if they are going to blow themselves up anyway? No one knows where these vehicles are that’s all that matters to them. This could be nothing... but Im not ruling it out.

How often are uhauls stole in the DC and New York area? Everyday? I doubt it. Anyone have any numbers on this? Besides how often in the theft of a van do you have "The theft of the U-Haul was planned with cut lines to phones and surveillance cameras." Sounds like whoever it was knew what they were doing. And the fact that 2 of the vans have clearance for ground zero since like an awfully big coincidence. Then again all of this could be nothing... Im praying it is.

If you steal a U-Haul on August 21, there’s a lot you can do to disguise it before you need to use it on September 11. It could look like a delivery truck by now.

They also may choose to steal because their names will arouse suspicion at the rental counter.

The two vans stolen from two different DC area U-Hauls on the same day is a big red flag for me.

In addition to the ceremonies, there are 13 NFL games and 10 MLB games tomorrow. It’s going to be a long, tense day.

Ah, but there's the rub - why steal two vans w/Ground Zero clearance for some hare-brained scheme like attacking a WTC ceremony tomorrow, when everyone in the city is looking for them? These animals are big on symbolism - they targeted the WTC, the Pentagon, and apparently the Capitol or WH, because they represent three distinct-yet-intertwined pillars of American power. If - and I'm going out on a limb here - if they were stolen by terrorists intent on using them in an attack, it'll be elsewhere in the city. The symbolism lies in them using against us what they consider to be tools of the American spirit of resilience - the very work vans helping to rebuild what they destroyed ten years ago. The message: we will break the spirit of the infidels by attacking with a symbol of the spirit itself. A form of psychological warfare to add insult to physical injury. It's sort of the way liberals use the intent of the Constitution as a means to destroy it from the inside-out.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Why do you assume they have money? I would think the money system has been blocked in a few links since there is so much speculation right now.

I believe it would be hard to distribute money untraced to many different people.

Diplomatic couriers, illegals crossing the border with cash/gold, wire transfers to CAIR/Rauf/the Ikhwan, and perhaps, the 3 WH advisers. Since Ahmadinejad is in NYC, maybe he and his henchmen/IRGC advance crew brought plenty.

Anyone know where Ahmadinejad is staying?

"Jude Kenan Mohammed."

Counter terrorism idea: surgically implant every person with the name Mohammed with a monitoring device. Impact -- cut terror attacks in half.

Or perhaps the thief doesn't have a US driver's license. I guess one could rent on a Pakistani or Saudi license, but that would be a huge red flag. With this in the news, one could be sure that the clerk would be calling the FBI in the next minute - and an FBI agent would be looking at the photocopy of the driver's license in another 15 minutes.

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.

An NYPD police official said tonight terrorists could be trying to masquerade as construction officials in order to carry out an attack during tomorrow's 9/11 anniversary service. Police are hunting for three stolen vans belonging to construction companies doing work in or around the World Trade Centre site. The news comes as the identity of one of the three alleged terrorists plotting a possible attack was revealed.

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?
