The hunt is on, as I type, for someone who purchased ammonium nitrate. There are concerns that this may be part of a 'bomb plot'. Because "tension is running high" before the G-20 summit!
Coincidentally and curiously the man who is alleged to have bought this ammonium nitrate has 'missing fingers'. Certainly suggestive of someone who may have done some dangerous experimentation? Or perhaps, this detail is being reported on to give the masses the idea that something dangerous may be going on?
Here are the details:
-1500 kilograms or approximately 3000 lbs of chemical fertilizer
-The man is described as having a short, stocky build and is about 50 to 60 years old, possibly of European descent. He is missing fingers on his right hand and walks with a slight limp. Deja vu!
Where have I heard this same scenario reported on previously?
Oh, yeah...right before the Vancouver Olympics! Tensions were running high then too.
In fact I covered this saga More Olympic news- 2 tons of missing ammonium nitrate?
Is it any wonder I am having a deja vu? Why wouldn't the farmers coop record the identity of the purchaser? Will this turn out to be another clerical error?
Is this a way to ramp up the fear factor and justify the massive security bill?
