Nearly 3,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate are still unnacounted for in NC. This is one of Al Qaeda's favored ingredient mixed with fuel gas for truck bombs, it was also the same ingredient used by Timothy McVeigh in the OKC bombing.
 



Nearly 3,000 Pounds Of Ammonium Nitrate Stolen In N.C.; Volatile Fertilizer Often Used In al Qaeda Truck Bombs
The unsolved theft from a North Carolina facility looms large as local and federal authorities responded to a Department of Homeland Security announcement that al Qaeda may be planning a truck bomb attack against U.S. financial centers in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Lt. Connie Southern of the Wintston-Salem Police told INTELWIRE Monday that police had recovered 41 of the stolen 50-pound bags of fertilizer.

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, which first reported the theft on July 9, most of the recovered bags were found in vacant houses in the area and in an area home.

The remaining 59 bags are still presumably in the hands of the thieves. Dozens of similar 50-pound bags were purchased by Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh for use in the Oklahoma City bombing.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

With the terror alert recently raised, the possibility that AL Qaeda and other terrorist organizations could use trucks full with explosives in US cities, and knowing that there is a lot of explosive material which is still unnacounted for, and that can be used for a terrorist attack, it is very possible all this unnacounted for material will be used in the next terrorist attack.

How does someone lose 3,000 lbs. of explosives?! Yeah, I'd say this is a problem. Not like losing your keys.
