I have been contacted by well known source and asked to issue a general warning in the interest of public safety. I know for a fact that I am not the only member of the Independent Media that is in receipt of this information. Because the following information has been turned into an active law enforcement investigation, I have been asked to be purposely vague. Further, the revealing of the identity of the person(s) making this report could endanger their lives. Subsequently, the following information is meant to serve as a general warning to the public.
As a point of reference, I have been asked to not mention the following:
- The individual, or individuals who were approached about selling these possible converted explosive devices to terrorists.
- The specific type of device(s) that were attempted to be purchased.
- The name of the lead law enforcement agency that is presently in charge of this very new investigation.
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, there are presently, individuals who are attempting to purchase materials that can easily be transformed into very deadly explosive devices. The number of known devices involved in this scenario is more than 10 and the number could easily go much higher. The number of explosive devices probably goes far higher. the devices are not intended to be used as force multipliers. Rather, each device would be used individually and if deployed in the number cities matching the number of devices, the simultaneous, or the near simultaneous detonation of these devices, in multiple cities, would have a devastating impact on the country. Just In Time deliveries could be impacted. The level of fear could paralyze this country, thus, making people afraid to go out of their homes. People would begin to avoid restaurants, sporting events, movie theaters, etc. The net effect of a “Tet Offensive” type of explosive attack, simultaneously delivered in multiple locations, would bring the American economy to its knees.
I have learned that most metropolitan police department bomb squads are equipped to detect and disarm such devices. However, the danger lies in the fact that the general public, ignorant of the threat, would approach an abandoned backpack or box or vacated car and inadvertently detonate the device. Subsequently, based on what I have been told, The Common Sense Show is issuing a common sense alert.
Do not approach any backpack.
Do not approach any box or container sitting on the ground.
Discourage others in your proximity from approaching either of these items.
Upon encountering an abandoned item, relocate to a safer area and contact local law enforcement.
I am not comfortable issuing such a vague warning based on anonymous variables. However, I know the identities of the person(s) making the report. However, I agreed to these conditions before being told about these developments.
I know the type of device(s) involved and I know how many of these devices are potentially in play. This is a dangerous and credible threat. Therefore, this warning is being issued strictly in the interest of public safety.
