congressional record from 2004 of them discussing the security risk with explosives storage and how they hope to mitigate these things from happening
HOMELAND SECURITY: SURVEILLANCE AND MONITORING OF EXPLOSIVE STORAGE FACILITIES
Originally posted by Corruption Exposed
As soon as I read this article a few questions came to mind.
1. Who stole these explosives?
2. What are their intentions?
3. How does a person/people manage to steal 559 pounds of explosives without being caught?
There are plenty of other questions that come to mind but those were the main ones for me.
Many citizens of theUnited States are still recovering/living in fear due to the Boston incident regardless of their opinions of what really happened that day. Now, 559 pounds of explosives and equipment to help detonate these explosives have gone missing.
Am I the only one to think that a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest is a bit low?

Considering the fact that explosives can be used by terrorists, not to mention they're deadly in the wrong hands, you would think the security on bunkers across the U.S. would be tight. I would also think security cameras would be the norm. Fail.

Doesnt sound like the feds were very concerned with it being stolen given how they were stored and given the $5K reward it doesnt sound like they're too concerned with recovering them either.

Wow, This is spooky. I live in Western Montana myself and will need to remain vigilant and keep an eye out for anything.
This doesn't sit well with me...and with the stuff out guvment has done before, well you can understand.
I hope something sinister isn't already coming down the pipes again.

Camera security only tells you after the idem have been taken. plus by federal and state safety laws you can not have any power sources within 100 feet of a explosive magazine so you cannot power the cameras or alarm systems at the explosive magazine.
