C4 Plastic Explosive Found At Port Of Miami

Tue Jan 09, 2007 5:31 am

I wonder if this is linked to the boys in the blue truck yesterday? Maybe these explosives were meant to blow up the Cruise Ship they were being loaded on?

It is at the Royal Caribbean pier.

Maybe Carnival did it...to delay the sailing of the vessel.

On a more serious note, there is an air exclusion zone around the port.

Wow, that's pretty serious. Regardless of how it got there, I'm glad they were able to catch it beforehand.

As of 8 minutes ago, they have said nothing to it being a false alarm

they detonated it; but it really has to make you wonder if the next terrorist attack will occur at a port. a perfect place from a terrorist standpoint.

But surely there is a lot of security anyway, because of concerns over smuggling and so on, as well as illegal immigration concerns, maybe its more difficult than you might think?
