Heres a better pic. What is the significance of this?







The significance of those is, they are underground vaults. These are points where underground cables are turned to go inside of a building. You could bury a curved conduit in the ground, but then you'd have to pull these monstrous cables around a 90 degree bend in a pipe. And, if you've ever seen some of these cables they're about 4" in diameter, stiff as a 4x4 and weigh about 20lbs per foot. You don't bend something like that very easily. So the vaults serve as what is known as a "pulling point". They can pull the cables straight down the street, and into the vaults. Once in the vaults they use hydraulics and giant pulleys to 'bend' the cables around a corner and enter a pipe which goes inside the building. They also leave slack at these points which are called "service loops". This way, if the cable ever gets cut somewhere (like from a digging crew) they have enough slack in the cable to pull it back and make a splice somewhere without having to re-pull the whole segment of cable.

So, a couple points here...

1. What you are observing as evidence of blowing outwards is actually the brick facade falling off the building and downward.

2. Yes, objects near an explosion are often drawn towards the explosion, not away from it. The reason for this is how an explosion works.

3. There are two basic components to a blast. The first one is the blast itself which creates a significant 'over-pressure' shockwave which radiates outwards. This creates a massive vacuum (or under-pressure) at the epicenter of the blast. Underground vaults, manholes and other items would equalize their pressure much slower than the surrounding air. This would create a significant pressure differential between the vault, and the air above it. So the vault would in essence be pressurized and the air inside the vault would try to immediately rush toward the vacuum, blowing the lids of vaults and manholes upward in an effort to rapidly equalize the pressures and establish equilibrium.

ETA - This is why they use explosives to put out oil well fires. The blast creates a vacuum and all the accelerant (oxygen) is removed from the area of the fire.

Max Brooks described the pressure effects of the explosives used in one big battle between the modern military and zombies. One veteran said that if you ever find a zombie walking around with his lungs pulled out of his face to let him know - he's always up for meeting another veteran of the battle of Yonkers, alluding to how the pressure effects of the big explosives could cause that much destruction on the human body even if you survived the blast wave. Zombies, of course being undead, didn't care about either part.

I don't have twitter or Facebook, so I can't provide you direct links, but from posts on other sites, and numerous internet video, it has been posted that many, including those that lost loved ones during the Blackwater killings, are very upset that those that were found guilty and convicted, were freed by pardon.

I threw my 2 cents in, very early in the developing post. Though there still is no known or verified facts about who did this or why, I do believe that if a message was being sent, whoever it was being sent to, got it.

Husband mentions that it could also be testing the waters for cutting communications by those who believe we're heading toward Civil War too.

Based on the fact that there was a bogus call regarding shots fired in the area, I'm assuming law enforcement were being deliberately lured into what would become the blast zone.

And then the bomb went off while they were responding and checking out the area, so I don't think there's an issue with the timer going off at the wrong time. Sounds to me like it went off exactly when it was supposed to, assuming it was a timer at all and not set off manually.

sounds to me like it was intentionally done early enough in the morning, that they were trying to minimize civilian casualties while simultaneously target law enforcement.

Consequently I have to conclude it's probably some anti law enforcement / anti-government group or individual.

Probably another Timothy McVeigh wannabe.

Which absolutely disgusts me.


It wasn't a bogus call. The lady who lived directly across the street heard the shootout and called the cops at 5:30 am. She then heard the RV saying if you can hear this you need to leave the area as this RV will explode. 15 minutes later the RV went into a minute by minute count down. She and her husband got into their car and drove off as it said 8 minutes to explode.

The RV did not explode until about 30 minutes after that.

This was done on Christmas morning so no workers would be around and no people would be out walking the streets per any other day.

The target was the AT&T building! It was a highly directional blast, it punched deep into that one building while not even leaving a pot hole in the street.

All AT&T hubs have nuclear bomb proof bunkers in them for Continuity of government communications. The CIA was likely using that bunker for a safe house. Odds are, they are still down there.

Or, our enemies are just being preemptive, in order to speed up the sweep and isolating us, for when they come to take possession of the country, after we have done all the dirty work for them.

LOL, Good luck as not even a nuclear weapon hitting the city will affect the Government lines as they come in deep to the bunker below.

The military are our brothers and sisters. They will be standing right beside us.

This was obviously done by some nutter, I don't see anything here worth investigating outside of this being a one off crazy person blowing something up. What does bother me though is the evacuation message that was broadcast prior to the explosion. If anything I would imagine that that would only attract people.

Disagree completely, that makes no sense...

The warning in fact, makes me think it could easily be cover for some kind of white hat op. So, the question is, what could be inside that building that would be of such high value to justify this kind of op?

Encryption keys for... something... ?

The whole brick face of the building is inside the building, not out front. The explosion sucks the air away from your lungs as it is pushed away from YOU. Only a nuclear weapon implodes lol.

See any bricks laying in front of the AT&T building?? The entire face of it was blown inside the building, had it not been such a long and deep building they would have been shot out the back. Down the street from another building that failed to withstand the shake yes but if they ever show the direct front of the AT&T building you will see its all inside, deep inside.

Interesting note, It's going around that at&t was involved with Dominion systems investigations.
In...wait for it.... Smashville.

Linky please???

Not to mention that getting this much explosives is impossible anymore. The ATF would be on anyone buying a quarter of what is required for a bomb this big in a New York second.

This is way over any civilian or disgruntled worker job. Has good government against bad government written all over it. This was intended to gut that building without hurting any civilians at all.

The CIA or another shady as hell agency had to be using the nuclear bomb bunker under the building for something bad.
