Explosives found in bag at Manhattan cemetery

Explosives have been discovered in a garbage bag at a cemetery in Manhattan's Lower East Side, an NYPD spokesman tells CNN.

Nine bricks of the military-grade explosive C4 were discovered around 11 a.m. in the New York City Marble Cemetery, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Paul Browne said. The explosives were not wired to detonate.

    Sherri W.W. You are a naive person or you just have your head so far up, ah nevemind.
    Muslims want to build the mosque at Ground Zero. Pieces of one of the 9/11 aircrafts hit the building. That makes it part of Ground Zero.
    I got my eye on you. Be careful you write facts or I'm gonna be all over you like a wet blanket.
    The mosque doesn't matter. It will burn down time and time again before a second floor can even be completed. It takes a firetruck with firefighters to put out a fire.

    Are we better than the jews? they have a huge muslim mosque, the dome on the rock, built right atop genuine holy ground (the ancient temple mount) if it's ok with jews, it should be OK with people who believe Israel is God's chosen nation to this very day. and nascar is in fact fixed. check that book out and see for yourself. goodnight grandpa....gewd nighght jim-bob. g'nite mary ellen...good night john boy. and good night all! especially jim and tomcat (smile)

    Chris. Muslims can build a mosque there. I want them to. That way every six months or so, we can watch it burn to the ground on the news.
    I think it will be entertaining. I can hear it now.
    News Anchor: For the 20th time the Ground Zero mosque is burning to the ground. It was almost ten years ago when former one term President Barack Obama said, yeah I believe a mosque should be built there. It was all downhill for him from then on. But we do have this Ground Zero mosque burning to thank him for. It has evolved into a spontaneous celebration twice a year.

    tomcat, I am mad at you. Not talking to you till tomorrow. Paula was gorgeous when we were in high school. My older brother (Paula was his girlfriend) didn't know we went down to the river. Thank God literally. My older brother would have killed me if she drowned. Not really but I would have been totally devastated. I was so in love with her.
    goodnight phil. Checking tomorrow.
