NEW YORK – An explosion early Monday morning on Manhattan's Upper East Side, possibly caused by a small bomb made from fireworks, destroyed a sidewalk bench and shattered windows in a Starbucks coffee shop.

No one was injured in the blast, which happened around 3:30 a.m.

Investigators were looking into the similarities between the explosion and others that have taken place in the city over the last four years, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said. The bomb went off around the same time of day as an explosion at the British consulate in May 2005, another at the Mexican consulate in October 2007 and one at the Times Square military recruiting station in March 2008.

The CIA just won't quit will they?
I think these bombing are simply too precise (as far as times go)
