Do they really have to mention that the guy who reported the abandoned vehicle was a vietnam veteran?
Mayor Bloomberg does.
Anyway, the best news story of the day so far:
Man found with green blood!!
it was a link from the Times Square url. *shrug*
probably the work of some domestic unknown.
Sounds a bit like the failed one outside a London nightclub a few days before the attempt on Edinburgh airport (that was also spotted because it started smoking heavily) and there was that one in Bristol - somewhere south western, anyway - where a bloke tried to suicide bomb a cafe toilet and failed to so much as injure himself.
but all those bombs you mentioned were amateurish as well.
If you know what you are doing, then your detonators won't fail.
the would-be bomber was a man with learning disabilities who had been 'befriended' by local Islamists who then went on to exploit him.
