#2045: It's not terrorism!

Steven den Beste links a story about a car bomb in Times Square. The car bomb failed to go off because of a faulty detonator.

Predictably, the feds say, "...the event did not appear to be a terrorist threat." The only reason they can say it doesn't "appear" to be a terrorist threat because the bomb didn't detonate.

Trust me, this is a terrorist threat. It's also the second attempt at a "man-caused disaster" on American soil on Obama's watch.

The description in the article doesn't say what was in the various containers. How much ANFO can you fit in a couple of propane tanks? How much ANFO does it take to turn a Nissan Pathfinder (actually an SUV, not a car) into a big mess of shrapnel?

The article is woefully short on details, but that's to be expected for a breaking story.

Expect the next terror attempt to work. We got lucky this time.
