Tonight, the news world is abuzz about an abandoned U-Haul truck on New York’s busy RFK a/k/a Triborough Bridge. If you’ve ridden on that bridge, as I have many times, you know that it’s a very busy bridge, even in the middle of the night, and an important artery connecting the Manhattan island to some of its boroughs.
A man abandoned the truck on the bridge, near the toll booth, and an employee at the booth smelled leaking gasoline. Plus, the driver left the truck on the way to New York City and ran away, according to several witnesses. The bridge was shut down as bomb technicians and other law enforcement officials checked the truck out. They found it to be harmless. . . . Or was it? Sure looks like this is a dry run. After all, police haven’t found the driver and are looking to speak with him.
Who abandons a truck on the Triborough Bridge and runs away? It just doesn’t happen. People know better, especially given that it’s so close to the site of 9/11. Plus, do you really want to lose your U-Haul deposit? Only if you don’t care about the Ikhwan‘s [the Brotherhood's] money and you’re trying to see what happens when you park on the bridge, how long the response time is, etc. If this was really a legitimate truck problem, why did the driver leave?
I don’t buy that this was just an innocent mishap. It simply doesn’t make sense. Especially on one of the busiest bridges not far from Ground Zero.

Same jihad news, different day.
Yup, in a nutshell.
