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.

    phil. There are pigs being raised in enclosed fenced perimeter areas surrounding all our drinking water facilities. It is a profit making solution that provides total security. No terrorists have penatrated one.
    Former President Bill Clinton came up with the idea.

    Actually they are unprotected in the fact the security would not prevent entry but the entry would be known. The reason they are not protected to prevent entry is because the poor would be killed.
    I refer to large metropolitan areas because attacks elsewhere would be insufficient. Not enough people.
    But still the 3000 and over population areas should all be gaurding their drinking water sources.

    Jim...I go fishing a lot. Many of the lakes and streams I fish are part of the cities water supply. There is nothing to stop a "terrorist" .....after undergoing extensive training in a Mosque (joke).... from poisoning the water. Ditto the LA aquaduct. If "they" really wanted tens of thousands of US dead, there would be tens of thousands of US dead by now.
