Patterico's Pontifications


Bombs Found in New Orleans

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:30 am

Hope they figure this one out:

The eight suspicious devices that New Orleans police discovered inside an abandoned pickup truck in a Mid-City bank parking lot contained chemicals that could have caused an explosion, according to an NOPD spokesman. The devices contained a combustible compound, according to officer Frank Robertson III.

. . . .

About 9:30 a.m., a mounted police officer working a detail was alerted to the suspicious Ford F-150 pickup that had been in the parking lot all weekend.

The officer, who has military experience, opened the truck’s door, and found what appeared to be two incidiary devices sizzling and smoking inside, Robertson said.

I’m assuming they mean incendiary devices. Scary either way.


  1. I think this will be attributed to either a white Christian conservative fanatic mainstream person
    a work related incidence of violence by a disgruntled farmer.

    but in all seriousness, glad it was found, glad nobody was hurt, glad the bomb maker was incompetent (apparently)

  2. Wait – it had been there “all weekend”, but the fuse was still lit?

  3. The article linked said one of the multiple devices had a timer with it. So it may have been there previously with the timer set to go off Monday morning when a nearby bank opened.

    But maybe we’ll find out more and reliable details later.

  6. Mid-City parking lot. Now who do we know is protesting against the banks?

  7. Check the local anarchists. You know, the ones who severely beat a couple leaving a Republican party dinner and got away with it.

    ISTR a Louisiana blogger who managed to connect one of the local groups to OWS and some other attempts at terrorism.

  8. OWS!
    And like their fore-bearers in the SDS/Weathermen, they seem to have difficulty working with explosives.
    Perhaps Bernardine and Billy can give them some pointers?

  9. I’m sure taht this is somehow George Bush’s fault.

  10. MD in Philly – I have to admit that I am often in a state of relief at the incompetence of our enemies.

  15. This episode of planted bombs was caused by sequestration !

    Comment by Elephant Stone (0d8560) — 2/26/2013 @ 11:20 am

  16. This is definitely George Bush’s fault! :)

    Comment by Perry (329aa5) — 2/26/2013 @ 12:07 pm

  17. Reinforcement that Liberals/Leftists are both delusional, mentally off their rocker, and need help to do the simplest tasks.

    Comment by PCD (1d8b6d) — 2/26/2013 @ 12:18 pm

  18. We all know how this goes: When they catch the guy and he’s wearing a Che teeshirt, is carrying OWS signs, has been arrested for participating in OWS demonstrations in twelve other cities, spouts Bill Ayers nonsense, and is a registered democrat who voted three times for Obama in the last election, the media will immediately connect him to the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, the Republican Party, and George Bush.

  19. “….suspicious Ford F-150 pickup…”

    Suv’s around the globe breath a sigh of relief!

  20. Hey can we get elephant stone here to make fun of somebody who knew a 9/11 victim? I feel like we need a sociopath’s take on all this.

    Comment by Right_Reddy (05f7c7) — 2/26/2013 @ 1:47 pm

  21. BillM – when they find that, it will simply be unreported. Memory hole.

    Comment by JD (b80f73) — 2/26/2013 @ 1:48 pm

  22. Just so you know -if sequestration becomes reality- there will be no police to find such devices and would cause a great danger to the public!/sarc

    Comment by Pamela (cf9d9c) — 2/26/2013 @ 1:51 pm

  23. Like that Iraqi fellow who tried to blow up that social security office,

  24. oh crap we’re all gonna die

    Comment by happyfeet (4bf7c2) — 2/26/2013 @ 1:53 pm

  25. Did I miss the story on tea party astroturfing? I feel like that may be noteworthy here, considering you all were duped.

    Comment by Right_Reddy (05f7c7) — 2/26/2013 @ 1:53 pm

  26. who gotted duped were the stupid obamawhores what believed food stamp when he said his fascist health cares wouldn’t add to the deficit

    Comment by happyfeet (4bf7c2) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:00 pm

  27. Right reddy is yet another of our multiple name serial trolls.

    Comment by JD (b80f73) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:15 pm

  28. JD needs to find a hobby.

    Comment by Right_Reddy (05f7c7) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:17 pm

  29. Says the leftist SQUIRREL that trolls here under multiple names. Priceless.

    Comment by JD (b80f73) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:20 pm

  30. I would like to know why nobody has called out PCD for his comment at 17. What does this post have to do with liberals? Given the limited information available, a rational mind wouldn’t think… ohhhh. Right. Rational.

    Comment by Right_Reddy (05f7c7) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:21 pm

  31. I have posted under Ned Ryerson. I’m not quite sure how that invalidates what I’m saying. I suppose that is the best you can do? Attack my handle instead of what I’m saying.

    Comment by Right_Reddy (05f7c7) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:23 pm

  32. What seems to be bothering you today, Ned? Do you need a hug? Didn’t your mommy teach you about sticks and stones and names?

    Comment by elissa (eb42c2) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:35 pm

  33. Mr. PCD the correct term for “Liberals/Leftists” is fascists

    consider yourself called out

  35. occams razor, would suggest OWS, that is about their skill level,

    Comment by narciso (3fec35) — 2/26/2013 @ 2:56 pm

  36. This probably has nothing to do with anything that anybody is familiar with – it’s probably somebody or something new.

  37. Did I miss the story on tea party astroturfing?

    Go start your own blog and write about whatever piques your interest. You and all your imaginary friends will have a blast reading it.

    Comment by Chuck Bartowski (11fb31) — 2/26/2013 @ 3:26 pm


    Start the sequester there.

    Comment by JD (b63a52) — 2/26/2013 @ 3:30 pm

  41. Last time I was in New Orleans, I had a blast. I listened to some jazz while drinking a Mint Julep. It was ‘da bomb !

    Comment by Elephant Stone (a3a935) — 2/26/2013 @ 7:56 pm

    Comment by happyfeet (acd614) — 2/26/2013 @ 8:00 pm

  43. Bush’s fault.

  45. See what happens when you feed the Trolls? They are attention whores who grow worse the more you feed them.

    Comment by Bar Sinister (5a053d) — 2/27/2013 @ 7:14 am

  46. BTW, any update on the possible failed terrorist attack? I know it’s not a very important thing.

    just like decapitated Coptic Christians

    Comment by MD in Philly (3d3f72) — 2/28/2013 @ 5:48 am

  47. Must not have been white christian males behind it after all.

    Comment by MD in Philly (3d3f72) — 2/28/2013 @ 8:02 pm

  48. MD – the MFM is still googling teapartiers to see if hey can blame them.

    Comment by JD (4f721c) — 2/28/2013 @ 8:08 pm

  49. Nothing. No updates found via Google News.

    All 11 stories:

    The story has not been in the New York Times at all.
