Not much detail on this story - just that a rental truck with hazardous materials on board being driven by someone who can't speak english has been stopped by police. The driver was reported to have been trying to get directions to Philadelphia airport.
Officers say the driver said was making a shipment from New York and was heading to a location near Philadelphia International Airport. It was not immediately clear exactly where he was going.

Police are now questioning the driver but he does not speak English.

Police say there are hazardous materials in the back of the rental truck.

Hazardous materials crews are on the scene.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Probably nothing to this, as someone on another forum said - hazardous materials could just be bleach, etc.
Interesting and worth watching though, none the less - especially with the bomb being found near where TB was staying and the bag of powder...!

When reading this a thought just hit me...

what if this story and a couple of the others from today ( Ft Wayne Airport, etc ) are just "terrorist" wanna be's ?

They have no actual ties to organized terrorist organizations, but feel that they want to "do something" to the U.S. So they're out on thier own trying to make something happen ?

It could be .. ???

Anything is possible!
It may even be some sort of diversion?
None of them seem to be particularly large scale really..

It's just a matter of time before something happens.
Philly airport is right on I-95. It's an easy target for
a hit, or for someone to bring down an airplane with
a missle launcher.

Our news media has failed us again. The nationality of the driver is omitted. Does it make you wonder. It appears the only time Middle Eastern men are identified as such, it comes from a private citizen and not our news media or law enforcement agencies.
