Authorities interviewed the person who owned the truck that originally bore the license plate found on the Pathfinder.

Ex owner told investigators he took the truck to a junkyard.

So here we go again. Another late night scare tactic related to the "failed" terror attack. The last time the U.S government successfully prevented a terror attack was on Christmas day, when the Nigerian bomber was apprehended. Meanwhile, as we speak, a month long anti terror exercise (also called "National Level Exercise 2010/ NLE 2010") that started in the month of April is currently underway. No details about this exercise are available on the FEMA website. The MSM is hush hush about this drill as well. Here are the links to the thread that I had created long back.

"No-notice" or mysterious NLE 2010

FEMA Requests Removal of National Level Exercise 2010 (NLE 10) Document

From the above threads,in NLE 2010, the objective is to simulate a detonation of Improvised Nuclear Device and to gauge the response of the authorities under such circumstances.

LOL I just saw this on the front page and went straight to reply, so I still dont know much about what happened but will read it when i finish this....

I live right by Manhattan Square, in Columbus Square so as soon as I walked out of my building, this lady asked me for directions and then she mentioned the trains were halted and I asked her why and she was like she doesnt really know but she heard that a bag fall on the tracks, i 4got what else she said.. and that a train ran over it and there was smoke, so the whole subway is in a standstill.

But the thing is, No one on the streets looked a little bit of the edge or anything, like if nothing happened at all.. Us, New Yorkers arent surprise if something like that happens, and even if its a real threat, I believe most of us wont take it seriously to the fullest, only feeling bad if anyone dies and will start to question things.. Something like this would have happened a very long time ago, we all know how much people are in Time Square on a Saturday Night, the last time was a man on a bike riding along and blew up that little military recruiting station on a late night and never been found and people didnt care, no one took it seriously like if they knew it was BS... We all learned from 9/11. No more fearing.

So plates were taken from the car from junkyard at Connecticut. Maybe this whole little episode is some kind of diversionary...

You can speak for yourself, but not for the whole state.

I truly doubt that there weren't people concerned tonight, and the lack of concern (if there was any) was more than likely because no one really knew what was going on and by the time they did they had it under control.

Trust me if a bomb went off across the street from you I don't think you'd be "LOL" - would you? Or for that matter, in your apartment? Didn't think so.

Glad this turned out to not hurt anyone, hopefully it's just an isolated incident and it stays that way. But, it seems trouble is just around the corner every day now doesn't it?

I do understand the whole 'self preservation' and not fearing everything - we can't allow ourselves to be controlled by fear mongering I agree with that. However real threats deserve real attention, period.

Well I'm speaking for myself and those who be around me .... and for those who dont hide behind fears. I bet tomorrow, people gonna wake up to another day, put on the news, find out about it and just go on with their normal lives.

As far if something blows up and I see it, My first reactions will be " OH SH|T" , I love explosive and things blowing up, I wanted to be a specialist on it when I wanted to sign up for the marines, so yeah maybe I will be LOL only up to the point I find out someone died then I'll get on my mean game and it sure wouldn't be in my apt., in the building, yes then I'll be on a hell of a ride..

I'm glad we both do agree on something but then again who can we trust nowadays?

This is a wierd story. No explosives ... but, anyone whose seen a propane tank go up knows it's definitely an explosive material.

Easy to source, easy to explain possesion, and theoretically easy to make explode. Maybe not too much damage, but i imagine a LOT of glass would break.

The fact that it didn't explode makes me curious. Did the guy cover the tank with homemade gunpowder and light it? Really, any way that i would invisage setting it off, would involve about 2/3 minutes, enough to get the hell out of there. All you have to do is open 1 tank, set something to make a spark in a minute, and run. It's that easy. (even a redneck could figure out that)

That makes me think flase flag. All the smoke they need.

Well, he was speaking for the city, not the state and I think he's right about the general attitude of New Yorkers. That's not to say there isn't concern, but people take things really in stride. They tend not to get really crazy about things and try to act very rationally.

After the '92 WTC bombing, I remember a reporter asked someone who had gotten out of the building and was covered in soot from the smoke if the attack made them more fearful and their answer was, "look, I have to ride the subway every day to and from work; you think a little bomb is gonna ruin my day?" (or words to that effect).

New Yorkers refuse to be ruled by fear - I think that's a big part of what it means to be a New Yorker.

Both of the witnesses have different stories. One says that he saw fire then smoke, the other said smoke, then the windows were too dark to see smoke?
Then Mayor said it was amateurist then CNN said it wasnt amateuristic?
Anyone else noticing differences already?

I watched the press conference, and they stated, "there were propane tanks and 2 gasoline cannisters and clocks, clocks with wires, and some consumer grade fireworks." he then went on to say, "it was amateurish".

Take it as you will.

Every time they mention the vendor that reported the car, they make sure to mention that he is a Vietnam veteran. It just seems strange to me...

Mos Def on Bin Laden...
When Bill Maher asked Mos Def "You dont want to be blow up by a bomb?" Like Mos Def said to him
"I live under constant pressure, I dont believe that boogie man sh|t, if somebody want to do some sh|t to you, they doing it, them motherf..aint talking about it, sending you tape saying "ima fk u up when i see you"(In this case the bomb threat),They just going to do it".... " I'm from the projects, I know danger, I dont feel no danger from that sh|t""

So yeah thats how most New Yorkers feel about things like this. The only terror we have is the NYPD.

www.earthcam.com...

I am watching the live cam here, and there are now guys in hazmat suits. There are quite a few, like 5 or more.

They had something they set in the middle of the street, a black box or something, and two guys in hazmat suits squatted down to look at it.

Just then, someone decided to tweet a car alarm sensor, and one of the guys leapt up, looked around and went back to what he was doing.

You can tell this is a spooked scene, still.

I just watched this on the news in the netherlands,

In the your post there are some that mention VIACOM and CC located at the other side of the street.. but our news reporters got the news that it was parked in front the bank of America? is this true ? or are our sources wrong?

I cannot answer to that, it seems to sort of be parked away from anything really. If you can see the cam link I posted just above, it says it is on the corner of 7th Avenue and Broadway. I see an address on the building right behind/to the right of the vehicle that appears to be 150. So, it is closest to whatver 150 Broadway or 7th Avenue is. *shrug*

So bomb guys wear hazmat suits? They have carried lots of bags from the vehicle to the police van they have there. Been lots of guys in and out of the vehicle, and they appear to now have abandoned the hazmat suits.

I really thought they would have towed the vehicle to a warehouse location by now, to prevent possible deconamination of the crime scene (mainly the vehicle)?

They are also letting people get amazingly close, they seem to have it cordoned off only about 15 or so feet away from the vehicle. All sorts of passerby are stopping and watching/talking to the police. They have a few police officers standing guard, I would have expected more, really. And a broader cordon. Really interesting to watch!

When someone called me on new years day that my house was on fire, i did not go and run around crying like a lunatic, I tried to keep calm. You are sometimes amazed at how people react at a scene of crime...

But anyhow nice observation but it does not have to mean anything
