Too Much Fear? Package Threat Forces Evacuation Of Dallas DART Station

Passengers Alert Authorities To Man Asking For Help Carrying Packages

By Andrea Lucia, CBS 11 News

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Mockingbird DART station and the surrounding area, including the Angelika Theater, were evacuated Saturday after a police dog alerted authorities to a passenger onboard with two suspicious packages, a spokesman said.

Riders traveling through downtown stations reportedly expressed alarm after a man asked them for help carrying a duffel bag and a large box.

Bomb technicians with the Dallas Police Department determined the packages were not a threat about two hours after the evacuation, said DART spokesman Morgan Lyons.

“He was actually trying to pay people to help him get packages on and off the train,” Lyons said.

The man with the packages remained with DPD through the afternoon, though he was not arrested.

“Inconvenient for sure, but we’re all okay – and that’s what matters,” said Kim Speer, who was attempting to return home with her two children.

Red and Blue Lines were affected, and passengers were rerouted to other stops and connected with buses. The Mockingbird station was reopened around 5 p.m. Saturday.

Nationwide, transit systems have been on high alert because of fears al Quaeda could retaliate for the death of Osama Bin Laden. Here in North Texas, the NBA playoffs have had heightened security at the American Airlines Center.

The FBI is also investigating suspicious letters with a Dallas postmark found at Washington D.C. area schools. They are similar to other letters sent to D.C. schools this week containing a white powder.

One of them referenced al Qaeda .

“The customers are aware of what’s going on in the world. We’re aware of what’s going on in the world,” said Lyons.

Like the power laced letters, the package at Mockingbird station was found to be harmless.

Still, no one at all seemed to mind the dose of extra caution.

“We live in a major metroplex, so you never know what’s going to happen.  Better safe than sorry,” said Speer.

    Please include a picture of a “suspicious package” so I will be able to properly identify one in the future.

      The U.S. Mexico border is a priority but your 911ASSHATsentials site is NO BETTER THAN THE BS MEDIA.

      Stop lying about 9/11 – MUSLIM TERRORISTS DID IT and you are helping them by saying they did not the same was the MSM is ignoring our border with Mexico.

    2. Richard Cappetto says:

      You are so right!!!!!

    3. jj says:

      one million illegal aliens enter the usa through the mexican border some of them are terrorist planning to kill innocent men women and our children and uncle scam not only doen nothing to stop them but actually encourages them and lures them with free government handouts,, its the same as our own government is helping terrorist kill us and helping illegal mexicans destroy our economy….whos side is washington one anyway??? it sure as he** is not our side.

    4. wri7913 says:

      Actually the news has been talking about the people being killed on the border. The states that need help have been SCREAMING for help these last two years. It’s just that the current sitting president refuse to do anything and won’t back up those states that do decide to do something.

      Remember when Arizona Gov decided to do something? What did Obama do? Sue them….. blame the “do nothing” on the hopey changey guy.

    5. Roberta says:

      Ande we have a pres who lavishly entertains the hispanics at the WH securing votes from them including the illegal ones that he will make certain will vote. This administration is spending more on them than the millions needed to secure our borders! Country was never first with him…

    6. A. Levy says:

      When OBL was killed, the media lost a chance to create their usual circus atmosphere with a trial, so they’re doing the next best thing. They’re using fear and hysteria to create a “terrorist around every corner” atmosphere. Soon, thanks to them, people will be afraid to go to the corner store. Wake-up America. The MSM is the REAL enemy!

    7. Spider says:

      Two facts about terrorism that everyone should know.
      a) There is no defense against terrorism.
      b) Your best protection is common sense.

      Probably has a dozen warm bagels in it or else maybe a six pack of Budweiser. You never know. Lets continue to have The Sexual Abusers monitor your travel. But as you said lets not worry about the Drug Dealers, the Thieves and The Gun Runners who cross the Borders illegally because as we all know these are all potential Obumma supporters and we must never, never do anything to upset the Unions, the illegals, the Unemployed and the felons. Because as we all know, these are the constituents of Obumma!! Not the working class, the business owners, the entrepreneurs and the employed evil money making tax payers!!!!!!!!!!!

        Just watch the ACORN videos and the news that Washington’s states ACORN Organization threatened a lawsuit if they didn’t accept 60,000 registrations. Problem is they checked and only 8 were valid. When called on it ACORN said they sat in th elibrary making up names . People go in and say they are who th are in those fraudelent registrations and those are OBUMMA”S constituency. The same in MN where 63,000 votes were registered by ACORN. Coleman lost by 275 votes. I wonder if that 63,00 was the difference. It was the difference in Obummacre or no Obummacre. He is evil!

    9. Hammer says:

      911 was an inside job, obvious unless your stupid or blind to the truth. Fire doesn’t melt steel, you stupid stupid people it takes a blast furnace or thermite or thermate. oh yes, there was melted steel under all three buildings that were taken down by demolitions on 911. even if your stupid enough to believe the crazy conspiracy story of the government, WTC 7 wasn’t hit by a plane but still had molten steel in the basement. With that fact alone it proves your conspiracy was fake.

      1. MDWhite says:

        Brush off the Dorito crumbs, take a bath, turn off the video game and get a life. You obviously have spent way too much time in your parent’s basement…

    10. David says:

      You are right Fanny

      9/11 just like pearl harbor..A False Flag operation to get the war going.

    11. Sandy Lester says:

      Hammer, you are truly an idiot. Your premiss has been rebuffed dozens of times. But even your statement, if fire cannot melt steel how it then forged into various shapes.

    12. Fanny Forbes Franklen says:

      You’re in good company jpeditor ..

      “Naturally the common people don’t want war.

      But after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.

      Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.

      This is easy.

      All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger.

      It works the same in every country.”

    13. Bob W says:

      Yes, nothing adds up does it? The war on terror has cost us a lot of lives and a lot of money, yet only 15% of the border with Mexico is truly secure, according to our own government. As for the ridicule Hammer has received, it’s unjustified according to well over 1,000 licensed engineers who say the temperature at which fire melts steel cannot be attained by jet fuel. If those of you who are ridiculing Hammer are indeed engineers, you need to go back to school. But, I doubt you’re engineers or even capable of critical thinking. It’s clear that you prefer to be spoon fed by the media.

    14. Hammer says:

      Sandy must be one of those stupid folks I was referring to. No, none of the facts I’ve talked about have been debunked. Fact: jet fuel burns at 900 degrees, fact: open air fire burns at a maximum 1200 degrees. Fact: steel melts at around 2800 degrees. Fact: even if the lie about the fire weakening the steel girders were true, then the top of the building would have fallen off and still had 80 stories of building sticking up. The building could not have fallen into the path of most resistance without slowing down, they want us to believe it fell at freefall speed. Idiots

    15. Privatouring says:

      About 38,000 killed throughout the Republic of Mexico during the past four years…..not the border, but throughout 31 States and the Federal District.
      During the same time period, over 110,000 people have been killed through some kind of felony murder or manslaughter. Let’s see, Mexico is one-third the sizee of the United States, and has one-third the number of felony killings.
      The press continuously covers the story about Mexico, and that is why you know nothing about it and understand less.
      I agree about the nanny-state box warning. The solution to the security problem is to require all able bodied people who can pass a rigourous psycho and physo exam to be armed.

    16. GaryB says:

      to Bob W

      I AM an engineer. Fire doesn’t have to “melt” steel, it only has to soften it enough that the pressure that is applied from the above weight of the building deforms it enough that it breaks. Most people don’t realize that the weight of the building above it plus the extra heat from the flame would cause it to break. Send your other engineers back to school for a class in Thermodynamics and/or Applied Materials!

      1. laughnmatter says:


        Please inform me as to what you have built, because I want to stay as far away from any structure you had a hand in building.

        Please go to

        You will find 1,500 architects and engineers that have signed their names to a partition stating that the governments version of what happened on 9/11 is a physical impossibility and they prove it.

    17. Hammer says:

      Hey Gary,
      Congrats on the engineer degree, apparently they are easier to get these days.
      Your B.S. about softening metal doesn’t explain THE MOLTEN STEEL IN THE BASEMENT. I hate it when people want to debate facts but completely ignore what you say, to just spout out the same lies that are obviously false. Please reread my posts then come back with at a least believable conspiracy theory. Have you seen the pics of the giant balls of molten steel, or the satellite images? engineer, ha!

      1. laughnmatter says:

        They only see and hear what they want to see and hear. The molten metal doesn’t fit because they don’t have an answer for it.

        Plus do not be fooled into thinking that this forum isn’t filled with professional misinfo agents. After all, this is CBS. What do you think would happen to their credibility if they allowed those that comment expose what they themselves are paid to expose?

        The good news is most people that read these comments aren’t as easily fooled as the sy-op propagandists think they are. They can see that questions aren’t being answered. And there’s plenty of 9/11 truth sites with enough evidence to convince anyone that isn’t in denial that there’s a horrible group of people that have gained control of our government. It’s the people both Eisenhower and Kennedy warned us against, the MIIC and the Shadow Government.

    18. Buzz says:

      To Hammer: fire certainly does melt steel and the steel didn’t have to melt in the WTC towers to give way. The fire was hot enough to soften it enough. You conspiracy nut cases are a real piece of work. You ran around calling Bush the stupidest person on the planet, then you claim he was smart enough to pull off what would be one huge hoax involving thousand of people. You need to get out in the real world every now and then and face reality.

    19. Hammer says:

      Buzz your the conspiracy nutcase. Way to go on repeating the same thing that I already slapped down as a stupid argument. Just like all you conspiracy nutcases that believe hijackers with box cutters made NORAD stand down, you have no facts. All you can do is attack the messenger. Insult me all you like nut job, the critical thinkers know your full of it.

      1. Chris says:

        So, do you believe there were no hijackers?

    20. heatherfeather says:

      They lost credibility a long time ago. Cut them out of your life and watch out for your own best interests. The funny money circus sideshow is a dead end for all involved in it. Sort of like a cult or a drug addiction, dependence on the GINO and their bankster owners will not end well.

    21. Whatever says:

      “Critical thinkers” that can’t figure out the difference between your and you’re. Makes whatever else YOU’RE carrying on about kind of irrelevant….mr. engineer.

      1. Hammer says:

        Thats all you got whatever? That was weak.

        You are an idiot. how bout that, is that better for you? or would you rather me say you’re an idiot.
        Because spelling and grammer are important on an internet chat bd.
        lets argue the points, oh you can’t. or better yet let me guess “The fire was hot enough to soften it” weak very weak.
        The issue is MOLTEN STEEL not soft steel.
        I never said I was an engineer, i just play one on T.V.

    22. Winston says:

      I bet you guys still believe that Osama is alive? That Kennedy was shot by multiple shooters? That Elvis still lives? Sad Really….

    23. Gardentoolnumber5 says:

      Underlying theme in all these scare stories; “Better safe than sorry.” “It is a scary world.” “Just doing what they have to do to keep us safe.” The stories never fail to contain a submission message.

      KEEP QUIET! SUBMIT! THE STATE WILL SAVE YOU! They just need a bit more of your tax dollars to pay for your safety.

      Look on the address label. Do you see any shifty I’s?

    25. Silhouette says:

      At Hammer: You should not be calling people stupid when you yourself are showing your lack of knowledge. As it so happens, aviation fuel, jet fuel (which is akin to kerosene) can melt steel, especially when the flames are fanned by wind (created by the cool air rushing into the open sides of the building as the hot air rises). It does not take a blast furnace to melt steel, but anyone with an engineering degree will tell you, the heat from jet fuel can reach over 2000 centigrade. Quit reading conspiracy comics and get a grip

      1. Dynamo says:

        THREE (not two) buildings, two hit by jets, majority of the fuel of which burned off with the initial fireballs, falling to the ground at freefall speed. Multiple still and video images reveal horizontal blasts.Concrete was powderized, human body parts found on roofs of buildings all around blast zone. Obviously, those who were not told what to think by msm play-by-play could see that what we were all witnessing was the explosion of these bldgs, from the inside. Tower 7 (never covered by msm) buckled in the center, a characteristic of controlled demolition, fell at the speed of a billiard ball. This event was reported as already having occurred a full 20 minutes before it actually happened by BBC reporter. Physically impossible for this speed to be achieved without moving all thie mass out of the way via explosion. MOLTEN metal in basement for weeks after explosions. LIquid metal seen pouring out of windows before fall. Dust of 911 filled with micro-spheres of atomized steel, and red thermate chips. Most members of 911 commision did not believe official report. Firefighters warned to stand back, on video. Firefighters report, firsthand, about explosions in basement, backing up Rodriguez’ (WTC employee) testimony.

        Deniers: This a fraction of the inconsistencies presented by the official story. Before we go calling each other stupid, let’s just have these issues addressed by deniers in a reasonable manner. It hasn’t happened yet.

      2. Bumper Press says:

        Absolutely. Arguing with deniers is a waste of time. Most “deniers” are trolls paid to keep the lies alive.

      3. Hammer says:

        no it can’t. 1200 degrees max. you better read some basic science and physics. the fires were clearly smoldering long before the colapse. indicating an oxygen starved fire. not a 2000 degree fire.

      4. Hammer says:

        To you,
        your funny, really? 2000 dgrees celsius. OMG you either put that wrong or you are intentionally misleading folks.
        wiki says 287.5 °C (549.5 °F) for open air burn. I’ll even five ya 1200 F. but 2000 C (3600 F) I don’t think so. Silhouette is silly, or a Troll. or maybe you were just mistaken. still takes 2800 to melt steel. molten steel in basement… nuff said

      5. InTheBubble says:

        Jet fuel plus a blast of air can melt steel – right. I’ve been ducking those melting jet engines for years as molten metal falls out of the sky 24/7. Look out below!

        damn you are one uninformed bozo.

    26. mepatri says:

      Yup. They’ve done a great job instilling fear into the American psyche. It’s a plan designed to gain control. That’s why they ignore real threats, and build up nonsense in the eyes of the people so that they’re afraid to breathe. It’s sad that people are so controllable.

      1. dave b says:

        Actually The birth certificate is as good as any 3 dollar bill!!
        To think that they has such contempt for this country that they send out a poorly made fake birth certificate and the lap dog liberal media says it is good ! I think any high school student with even the most basic photoshop experience can do a better job.

        I am completely SHOCKED that this country has accepted Oboomba birth certificate. It is not even close to being real!! Even the short form birth certificate is fake. Did anyone else notice it was created on the hawaii form that wasn’t evenused until the 1980’s!!!

    A suspicious package is any package carried by said suspicious person

      2. Ben Dover says:

        OK. Then just show us what a non-suspicious package looks like.

    2. Renee says:

      And a suspicious person is anyone standing with their hands in their pockets, or with a Ron Paul sticker on their forehead.

      A suspicious package is one carried by a Towelish adherent of the Religion ‘O Peace ™.

I don’t want to live in a police state with a government-controlled news media that shapes public opinion like Pravda did in the USSR. We need the truth to come out about nearly everything that’s going on behind closed doors. I also believe that there are still too many Americans who are so naive they cannot accept the fact that sometimes governments do some very, very bad things to their own people. I look forward to Corsi’s book and more people coming forward with the truth. Our Republic is handing by a thread because we have too many cowards with important information who are too gutless to spill it.

      Stop interfering with the Second Amendment. We will keep ourselves safe.

    2. jen says:

      Actually, it is their job to keep us safe, LOL. It’s part of our constitutional rights. BUT~~ they are only supposed to protect us militarily in the event we are attacked. Not carrying our baggage onto a train.

      1. NavyBuckeye says:

        No, Jen, it’s not their job to keep us “safe”.

        Which part of the Constitution does it say the government will keep us safe? What section? What Amendment? Which branch of government does that responsibility fall under?

        It’s not the governments job to keep us safe. It is as Greg points out, to keep us free.

        Being “safe” is different for different people.

        I define safe as being able to make the choices and then the actions needed to protect myself and my family. That is it. Not be told what is safe or how to be safe.

        Now safe for a Democrat is having the government tell them what safe is and then letting them “make” you “safe”. And some Democrat voters don’t feel safe unless government is also telling them what to eat and wear.

      How right you are. I can’t believe all those people were amenable to being delayed and detained. I would have been irate. You sheeple should just stay at home with the curtains drawn and the doors locked. If you’re that damned scared of other people’s “suspicious” packages then do the rest of us a favor and stay home.

      1. NavyBuckeye says:


        Some of them already do that and take our tax dollars to boot.

    2. Barry loves you says:

      Gee, I thought it was making sure foreign and domestic banks steal trillions while the population is distracted by fake wars, fake terror, sports and Hollyweird. USA! USA!

      1. D Franklin says:

        That’s because you think for yourself. Just stop that and turn your TV on.

    3. Greg says:

      a strong national defense, yes. taking away someone’s right to carry a box without suspicion, no.

    4. JMWinPR says:

      Dear boB:
      Where exactly does it say that? What branch or agency does this fall under, Consumer Protection? Below is the oath, I don’t see the “s” word anywhere
      “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”

  23. Barry loves you says:

    “…but we’re all okay – and that’s what matters,”

    As long as that attitude prevails the security state will expand and expand make your life more difficult with the possibility of being swept up into something nightmarish. Now would be a good time to buy some land overseas as any fool can see where this is all headed. Just waiting for them to conjure up another 911 event and we’re all done for.

  24. wobbly-1 says:

    They had a suspicious package but, in keeping with tradition, had it dropped into the sea. They had video of one….but then it turns out that was incorrect and that in fact the video was off when they approached the package. But, we did find lots of video of the package watching itself on the television….

    1. DaveM says:

      LMAO and I have pictures of me sending that check in last week… but I am not going to show them to you… because you need to uhhh… trust me…..

    2. Bob W says:

      But we got a treasure trove of evidence! How many times have we heard that since going into Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan? As if this misadventure has been somehow worth it. Let’s see, the bad guys kill a little over 3,000 of us in terrorist attacks on US soil and then we spend a few trillion going after the bad guys and lose about 4,000 American lives, not to mention all of the maimed and psychologically damaged vets, which probably number around 20,000 conservatively. And now we’ve got martial law courtesy of the Patriot Act that our peace-loving, “freedom-loving” President insisted on extending. Yup, BUT WE GOT BIN LADEN! USA, USA, USA!!! — Nevermind the lack of any proof. If we’ve not become the dumbest country in the world, please tell me which country is stupider.

    ENOUGH!!!! The media is focusing our attentions on this now until they achieve their goal.

  29. Sad says:

    This is totally getting to be stupidly insane. The damn terrorists totally won in the war against terrorism. If we’re all going to live in fear every single day; everywhere we go, then terrorism have won. And we all are … we are all being groped at the airport; and I suspect coming soon to train stations, malls and groceries stores. The basics and basis of an American, helping others with luggages or needs have pretty much gone with the question (Has anyone else handled your luggage?) at the check in counter at the airport. The fear has turned Americans from a helpful society to a fearful one.
    This is a sad day for America … that’s all I got to say.

  35. rharris47 says:

    I think anyone discussing a suspicious package is suspicious. Can anyone besides myself see where this is going? Its time for Americans to stop being afraid and start getting angry. Enough is enough! Lets declare a real war and fight real wars! Bomb Bomb Bomb. Deport the Muslims here back to where they came from. Eliminate the threat! Government is suppose to stand up for Americans not Foreigners. War is Coming if our government doesn’t change its ways. Americans will only take this for so long. You can only kick a dog so many times before it bites you. This is nature! This is what will Happen!

    1. Bob W says:

      You know, there for a few moments I too stopped thinking about the fact that our country is bankrupt, cannot or will not create decent paying jobs, is still transferring wealth to the top .01 percent at a dizzying rate, won’t punish the big banksters for destroying our economy, is facing an impending dollar collapse, and that we as a nation are slowly but surely slipping into third-world status. What will they do for an encore? Maybe we can bomb Pakistan for having harbored the No. 1 terrorist who was reported dead nine years ago by most intelligence agencies around the world. No wonder there are no photos of a dead bin Laden, no helmet cam video, no DNA lab report, no video of the alleged burial at sea, no corpse, no witnesses — and a bunch of “facts” that conflict with one another.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama and sweep out the Congress.

  51. Bob W says:

    I’ve not seen a single shed of evidence that would indicate bin Laden was assassinated. In fact, I doubt that he was. The fact that so-called bin Laden threats against the US would be found — and that a crackdown on Americans would follow — was however predictable. They never miss an opportunity to rob decent people of their rights. If they were serious about the alleged war on terror they would seal the southern border and investigate what happened to “Building 7” rather than cover it up.

  53. Pip says:

    This is all hyped up fear to bring the sheep into a Police State. !/2 of Americans are aware of the Globalist Parasitic Elite Class working to bring us into tyranny by “a thousand little cuts”… And the other 1/2 believe everything the mainstream media throws at them. They worship at the alter of mainstream reality and like any religious fanatic, won’t look at the evidence and won’t hear anything that might contradict their little house of cards known as the Mainstream Reality.

    What gets me is that, with most people..regardless of how illegal the activity of the Govt. is, they can just pass a law.. and, people seeing the “L” word will simply shut down and say “well, the law says you can’t grow vegetables on your property anymore” or “the law says you can’t question the govt.” etc..And they will go along with it.

    Meanwhile, those of us who are awake, are pounding our heads against the wall, wondering what separates those of us who see the truth and the rest of the public lost in a fast food, GMO nightmare complete with poison tap water.

    Keeping us “safe” is not the job of the govt. They should be worried about keeping the US alive Financially and stopping Illegal Immigrants on the southern border.

    1. DemocratsSuck4Ever says:

      So, in other words. America has become Nazi America? Because, “police state” means saluting President Barack Hitler, killing thousands of innocent people, and targeting Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Gays, Gypsies, and Republicans. I have a question for you. Has, America become Nazi America?

  54. Kelly Anderson says:

    It’s on RECORD that Al Qaeda is a CIA creation and the Elite are using this nonsence to bring the US into Tyranny. If you don’t understand this, you will be a victim of it.

  55. Henry says:

    Government wants coplete control over all forms of transportation. The patriots from Amtrak have banned the controvercial TSA. Now the establishment hacks in the government want to fearmonger. The government wants to control transportation so they know where everyone is and to guard aginst people throwing them out of their offices. I find it suspicous that the country is on economic life support and the adminstration can only get points by flag waving a dead terrorist that we funded in the 80’s and 90’s. When there are no jobs, high priced gas, and the dollar is toilet paper, the government will try to rally the people against another boogey man to take the blaim.

  56. pfwag says:

    While it could be tragic for a few people in the station or on a train, this isn’t the stuff we have to be too concerned about. Cargo container security is the week link. Every year millions of 40′ long cargo containers arrive and are quickly delivered all over the USA. None are searched. Security is mostly an assurance from the sending port that the container is safe. A container could contain 60,000 pounds of PETN, or a nuke, and be trucked to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, or the middle of your city, and detonated.

  57. Grunch says:

    All of you complaing about the guy who got detained for a while, if there was actually a bomb and it exploded, you would be complaing that they weren’t watching closely enough. Either way, nobody is happy about anything. Personally, I’d rather have it inconvenient for one man than a whole bunch of people be affected for life because nobody bothered checking for a bomb when it looked alittle suspicious.

    God Bless our Police and Soldiers! We thank you.

    1. Hammer says:

      If it were actually a bomb he would have been a patsy for the military industrial complex that is taking control of our country. So, he wouldn’t have gotten caught since he would have been escorted onto the bus by an operative. Just look into the shoe bomber or the underwear bomber fiasco’s. Both false flag ops that were probably intended to fail. No amount of security protects you when the CIA walks the terrorists onto the plane.

    The DrudgeReport links to this page with his headline “US Freakout: Terror Alert; False Alarms”. How can this in any way be called a “Freak Out”? People are being cautious, they’re a little edgy. Why try to make Americans seem like they’re in panic when they clearly aren’t?

    1. D Franklin says:

      Because Drudge gets paid whenever anyone clicks on one of his links. He’s corrupt like the rest of them.

      1. tgc says:

        Making money is your idea of being corrupt?

    2. Joe says:

      The US should have thought about terrorist threats coming from real killer terrorist and not aim arrows at President Bush as being chief terrorist of the world. President Bush was trying to solve the terrorist problem happening in US towns and cities and democrats were trying to win an election. Remember, President Bush inherited the terrorist from President Clinton.
      Had the slogan been “We support the troops” instead of “We support the troops but not the mission” we may be going through airports with ease. You get what you vote for..

    The DPD held him most of the entire afternoon?!? Why?!? Once they looked inside the packages and ascertain there was nothing dangerous in them, they should had let him go on his way!! I see people nowadays pretty much everywhere, young and old, carrying backups at movie theaters (why do you need a backpack when you go to a movie and the ushers can’t keep you from entering the theater with it or search it), shopping malls, restaurants, etc etc So technically, wouldn’t that make everyone suspicious now? Furthermore, many of these back-packers are kids, from high school age to FIRST GRADE; therefore, if we take a minute and apply TSA’s warped mentality of who is a potential “Terrorist”, THEY ARE ALL TERRORISTS!! Finally, BASED on this NEWS ARTICLE, everyone going in and out of a Post Office or a Package/Postal Shipping Store like Kinko’s and UPS Store is SUSPICIOUS and a TERRORIST THREAT!

    Where is Harry Truman when we need him. Instead we get “Achmed the puppet” for a president. What’s wrong with 50% of us?

    I would just like anyone that believes this garbage to ask themselves a few questions.

    Where are you getting your information? Main stream media? One channel, or do you watch more than one channel? Do you read? Have you ever done any independent research? Do you only associate with people that agree with you? Do you think mainly in terms of Democrat/Republican or do you think of yourself as an American first and foremost? Have you ever traveled to other countries and stayed long enough to realize the impact/control that governments have over the life for their citizens? Do you believe that you are smart enough to think for yourself and come to your own conclusions? Just wondering….

  71. August Dunning says:

    Tiberuis Franklin 3minutes ago

    Well, now that the TSA is squeezing your balls looking for terrorists let’s look at the evidence of an al queda 911

    Is there any repetitive events on that date?

    yes there is!

    september 11 1776 – Franklin tells British adm. Howe, we will not rescind our declaration of independence on Staten Island, 4 days later Howe attacks Gen Washington BY SURPRISE on manhattan island at the battle of Manhattan. a year later we take staten island from the british at the battle of fresh kills.

    september 11 1812 – British sink american ships and start the war of 1812, raid our coastlines, burned the whitehouse

    september 11 1864 – british financed union troops burn atlanta to the ground – the capital of the american merchantile trade – their global competitor

    september 11 1912 – british rhodes scholar Edward House, meets with JP Morgan, Sam Chase and Goldman to plan the jekyll island secret meeting to put wilson in the whitehouse, and bring in graduated income tax, a right to work, a demand for cataloging all the living resources animal and human.

    september 11 2001 another SURPRISE ATTACK on trade buldings on top of the location of the battle of manhattan in 1776, and the dead are buried at fresh-kills garbage dump on top of the location of the battle of Fresh-kills in 1777

    now really people, copy and paste this and spread it around. We are at war with a banking RICO orchestrated out of the central banks and the Bank of London, the majority share holder of the Federal REserve Bank of New York.

    It seems clear to me that we should now start paying attention to the fact that 50,000 FEMA officers have been hired, the entire military is out of the country, concentration camps have been built by Halliburton – are empty but manned with guards, the fox is in the hen house

    and the fat 40 something TSA guy just put his fingers up your daughters vagina looking for terrorists…

    Now America; now is the time to act, we may never get a better chance to bring back our republic for our ancestors; Franklin, Adams, Jefferson, Washington…and all those that died to protect our freedoms from the likes of TSA, the Banks and the Democracy turd we have as a ruler, not a government.

    1. D Franklin says:

      People here are too weak, brainwashed, doped up on prescription meds, etc. to do anything. I knew it was over when people volunteered to let the government molest their children. America is dead. It’s over.

      1. Eric P Turner says:

        as i said its a huge barrier to over come reaching people that still believe the government is their friend and would never hurt them.

    2. Eric P Turner says:

      so when are we gonna do this? based on the population we need at least 50 million people or should i say angry motivated people that will stay focused on the mission at hand. my belief is the other 250 million will fallow suit not long after cause that’s what they do they fallow what ever is popular and the celebrities are doing or wearing.
      so lets say that by some massive miracle that all
      happens and we win our country back then what?.
      what do we do with our selves after that , who do we trust how do we keep it all from just going back to what we have now.
      theses are the tough questions and it obvious we would need a extended thought out plan. never mind how do we get 50 million people to help make it happen, just saying ya know!

  72. Chi Town Nick says:

    This is just them overexploiting America’s pathetic PC over kill that actually shields our real enemies from scrutiny while they rape everyone else to give the ‘impression’ of security without coming close to actually providing it.

    These die hards know all they have to do is get on a plane, start chanting, twirling their hairyassed mustache’s and beards and we have to react because they’re there in the first place. All male Muslim immigration should be halted for a decade while we kill off the generation of terrorists already here waiting for their clarion call to arms which could come at any freaking day now.

    It’s ridiculous when you have idiots on MSNBC declaring ‘the war on terror is now over’ and other equally ignorant arguments like waterboarding it torture but sneaking 70 armed Special forces in the middle of the night into their lair and shoot one in the head and their woman isn’t torture….Idiots and nothing more who would rather see America attacked again than face the truth and admit they were wrong. That simple.

    Meanwhile you’d think the lefties were all Chuck Norris fans and FOID card carrying armed 2nd Amendment lefties all of a sudden wrapping themselves in the flag and the whacking of Bin laden which supposedly goes against everything they’ve been fighting us on since 911.

  73. toledofan says:

    I think that one thing is for sure, this administration will use the threats and possible attacks as leverage to take away more freedoms and to expand the tenacles of the TSA or Homeland Security departments. Don’tt get me wrong, a threat or a possible threat has to be handled but I think because of the distinct political correctness of the day, everyone will have to undergo the wrath of J. Napalitano. It’s almost comical to listen to those on the left, who were so against the enhanced interrogation, it’s like they have glue on their tongues, now trying to support what Obama did.

  74. harry says:

    No doubt the suspicious package was the Muslim carrying the bag. Americans no what the threat is.

  75. fussellfan says:

    It’s official: The stupidest people in America are now in TOTAL control of EVERYTHING…

    1. Eric P Turner says:

      apparently they are not that stupid they are getting away with it and there’s no end in sight, your statement in its self says you surrender and they can do what ever they wont you wont resist.

      1. mrsharfer says:

        Good point Eric! One way to get the attention of EVERYBODY is to STOP paying your taxes! Government ONLY responds to money. If we did this there would be too many to put in prison. Then it would be the people’s turn to call the shots.

    2. marvinlzinn says:

      And they were all elected by ignorant citizens (some probably paid for it).

  76. mrsharfer says:

    It seems that 99% of the anxiety and panic could be prevented by profiling. I always knew political correctness would get us all killed. Next time you make a new year’s resolution, let it be to be “less tolerant”. We can live up to that and it would help put an end to this being over run by illegals, muslims and liberals who are turning our country into a third world sh!t hole.

  77. Long Live the Republic says:

    Another tactic so big sis napolitano can put her scanners and tsa agents on the trains so they can continue molesting citizens and get rid of new laws that are being created to make it a felony to molest passengers. Funny how a lot of “scary stuff” is happening in Texas where the bill is trying to be implemented. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

    1. Eric P Turner says:

      and this is just the beginning next all buses, ships, soon a program like tsa will be at every public school searching your kids everyday when they go to school. you will be forced to have a tracking devise on your car so they clearly know where everyone is and if you resist they have wonderful accommodations for you out in the western states built by Halliburton just for you and your kind that will not comply with government standards. go ahead laugh and say that wont happen. you did 3 months ago when i said trains are next to have tsa standards implemented at train stations, oh here we are .

      1. marvinlzinn says:

        In other words, we have a communist government.

      2. Power4ThePeople says:

        This is Nazi America… I HATE IT! Adolf Hitler is our President… WHY?! WHY DO WE HAVE BARACK HUSSEIN ADOLF HITLER OBAMA AS AN PRESIDENT! Somebody, impeach this fool.

  78. Karen says:

    This is probably a govt. program performed by govt. agents, designed to justify stricter security for the safety of all.

  79. BlownfuelCoupe says:

    There is an extremely “Suspicious” package now in Washington D.C. It is believed to like BasketBall and fly Air Force 1 for unending vacations.

  80. Barry Bin Inhalin says:


    Can anyone else draw a line from the PC societythe Dems have created for us to this episode? IF we were hauling the truly suspicious LOOKING into custody and not pretending they aren’t there, a guy asking for help with a package wouldn’t be stopping a train.

  81. Buddy says:

    Never forget the interview with Madoff when he said “Sure, I took 65 billion dollars but I am the little guy. The government is the big ponzi that stole 14 trillion dollars.

  82. Brand X says:


  83. kelli says:

    Uh… didnt President Obama say that getting rid of binLAdin had made us aafer?

  84. Disgusted by Political Correctness says:

    Good Lord has this country been turning into a bunch of Pansies? Get a grip people, let’s quit sniffing diapers and gropping 8 and 88 year olds and get some courage to confront what the true threat is: 18-36 year old middle-easterners with ties to radical/jihad organizations. Go after them with the same zeal we went after the White Supremacistsin the 1980’s. Find our national courage and make them so miserable and uncomfortable that they leave to go find easier targets to intimidate.

      Time to start racial profiling in a big way. Four year old kids and grandmas on their way to see four year old grandkids aren’t the problem. Time to stop all illegals from crossing our southern boarder. Time to make everyone prove that they are a U.S. citizen before they can vote, or get any sort of government assistance. Time to stop this candyassed craziness about offending someone who isn’t in the country legally. PC correctness is killilng this country. Time to impeach this incompetent fool we have for a president.

    We have become a nation oif cowards. Our government is now at the final stages of totally controlling the American people. We are fools and we are stupid. The greatest people in the world are told by our government to be “afraid” of bombs at the mall, airport, trains and they will protect us by taking away our freedom of speech, privacy and even our property. I am ashamed of us because “We the People will give up (give to our government) everything that our ancestors have fought and died for! For God’s sake! We have our youth fighting, dying and being mutilated over seas for what??? To protect us from what??? Bin Laden, a former CIA freedom fighter that we trained, gave weapons and money to, to fight the Russans? Now Bin Laden is dead!!! You fools, he has been dead for years and the US government is using this joke to scare us into submission and control.

    Now if a person videotapes the TSA then they get arrested??? What the hell?? People should be going in groups to airports with their cellphones and videotaping EVERY person being searched in security. What is the government going to do? Arest every American and throw them in jail?

    I will never post again….I am ashamed of the cowards we’ve become. We have the Constitution to stand with us. Peacefully standing up and saying you can’t and won’t do this to us. If you think our government cares about us and would never lie to us then google “Operation Northwoods”. This was a false flag that the military did in the 60’s to have an excuse to invade Cuba. Thankfully Kennedy said “NO! You guys are insane!” Then later he was killed.

    Don’t play into this….stand together as Americans…our children deserve to be free rather than a future of chains.

    There were also the Crusades. That’s when a blood soaked bunch of Christian fanatics went to the so called Holy land and lopped heads off men, women, and children if they were Muslim. The Crusaders made Dresden in WWll look like a party.

    Anybody notice how it said police dog alerted to his packages? Police dogs are only trained on specific smells- drug dogs don’t smell bombs, bomb dogs don’t smell corpses etc. So if the dog alerted then the package had to contain drugs, explosives, or bodies. Unless they have dogs that smell “suspicious activity”? I’m not buying it. Meaningless pretext to search people.

    Dear Hammer, ’bout a thousand years ago Japanese, Brits and a few others made these things called swords pronounced sords. Guess what they used to forge them? In the the good ‘ole USA their was their was this 19th century guy named Carnegie. Same spelling as the concert hall in NYC, also like the bank. The guy really got around. Know why? They had these thingies called trains (rhymes with brains) at any rate this Carnegie guy used guess what? (clue: same as above) to make steel. He made steel rails for the train thingies so he could go around and naming things after himself. I didn’t make this up, you can check it on Google, You can also watch History Channel on weekends, sometimes they have a guy in Williamsburg, VA or Mystic, CT doing much the same thing. If you’re really good and never post your stupid ideas again, I’ll clue you in to the guy who recreates sord thingies using guess what?

  100. james says:

    i wonder why Hammer feels the need to include pety name calling in just about every single one of his posts. it seems like hes more out to slam people than to have a discussion. Sounds to me like he’s got some good points to make but with all the childish name calling I really just move right past his comments, dismissing them as juvenile. The name calling just negates anything intelligent he may be trying to say. it certainly doesnt help reenforce his point. he just sounds like a hothead know it all.

    1. Buzz says:

      Have you ever met a conspiracy nut case that could make sane comments?

    2. Hammer says:

      Actually James, I did not instigate the name calling. I was called an idiot and a nutcase first. You are right about one thing though, I do make good points. You’d be wise to ignore the fact that I said people who don’t know the facts by now are stupid (they are), and concentrate on the facts that Buzz wishes he could debunk. Of course he can’t cause it’s all true. Whether I’m stupid or crazy or just having fun cuz i’m bored, everything i said is factually correct. Buzz and Sandy called names first you didn’t chastize them? whats up with that? Peace my friends

Metal melts with heat. Deal with it.

    1. Hammer says:

      Nice James,
      I see the only aurgument you have is insults. I laugh at your pathetic non-aurgument. Birthers? what the heck does that have to do with the MOLTEN STEEL found in the basement and satellite images show the hot spots.

Americans, at least the ones I am around, are not afraid, are prepared to handle any threats to themselves or their families, and are going about their lives. Our government, however, either through a desire to use any excuse to expand its power and control, or else through ignorance, is way overreacting.

    Gosh, I seem to remember something about some godless, atheistic, commie liberal hippie names Jesus saying something about some Marxist parable about a Good Samaritan, and giving to everyone who asks you without asking them to give back, and telling people that as we would like people to do to us, do exactly to them, and doing good and helping others without expecting anything back for our reward would be great in Heaven.

    Ridiculous article. The media just doesn’t have any credibility anymore … and goes to great lengths to prove it with nonsense like this, which is designed to create ‘hysteria’ where is doesn’t exist.

  114. Buzz says:

    So tell us Hammer, if it were all just a government inside job that took down the WTC towers and blew up part of the Pentagon, that would takes hundreds of people to be in on it to accomplish it. So just how do you get that many people involved and no one ever comes fourth with the “truth” or information gets leaked? What happened to all the crew and passengers aboard the aircraft that crashed? I suppose you are going to tell us that all the aircraft and people on board were whisked away to some secrete government site where they are still being held. Oh, I know… there never were any aircraft, that was just mass hypnosis caused by the government that made people believe they saw planes hitting the WTC and the Pentagon, it was cruse missiles, and of course they managed to fool the cameras as well. So please explain in detail how so many would have to be involved to pull off such a conspiracy and yet no one that was involved has come fourth with the “truth”. You seem to know all the answers so give us the exact details.

    1. laughnmatter says:


      Your ridicule adds nothing to the argument. And you obviously have done zero research into 9/11.

      The Nazi’s had hundreds of death camps with tens-of-thousands of workers, guards, delivery people, yet the German people were so much in the dark about them that even after they were discovered by Allied Nations and the German people were forced marched through the camps there was a percentage that still refused to believe the German Army was capable of doing such a thing.

      And as far as people coming forth, hundreds have. And if you bothered to go past the MSM and do some research you’d know this. But you don’t. For whatever reason you prefer to keep your head in the sands and fart nonsensical insults.

      1. Buzz says:

        Please name one person that was directly involved with pulling off this so called government conspiracy. Name one person that has come forward and offered direct proof that they were directly involved in a conspiracy to bring down the WTC towers or blow a hole in the side of Pentagon at the direction of the U.S. Government. Name one person that would testify under oath to the above.

      2. DemocratsSuck4Ever says:

        You know something. America has become Nazi America.
        TSA= Gestapo
        Democrats= Nazis
        FEMA= Waffen-SS
        President Obama= Hitler
        Obama Youth= Hitler Youth
        Democrats are Nazis because they are part of the National Socialist American Worker’s Party. It’s true.

      3. laughnmatter says:

        Most recently Dr. Steve Pieczenik has been on the Alex Jones News Broadcast asking to be called before a Grand Jury to names names as to who in our government was behind 9/11.

        There have been numerous whistle-blowers who have gone public and used the knowledge from their respective fields to dismiss the official 9/11 story.

        FBI translator Sibel Edmonds, the most gagged woman in America, having the State Secrets Privilege imposed on her twice, went public last year to reveal that Bin Laden maintained “intimate” relations with the US right up until 9/11.

        Another whistleblower is former Sergeant in the United States Army named Lauro “LJ” Chavez. Chavez was stationed at MacDill AFB where he claims he witnessed unusual preparations for a potential airplane hitting the base on the morning of 9/11 and distinctly heard officers talking about a stand down. This led him to go public in questioning the NORAD stand down and the demolition of the twin towers.

        Indeed, the fact that BBC, CNN and others reported the collapse of WTC 7 before it fell was a form of blowing the whistle, as were the first responders and firefighters who have gone on record to say they saw and heard bombs tear down both Building 7 and the twin towers.

        There are also numerous firefighters and first-responders at

        You will be able to witness raw footage of victims talking about bombs going -ff in the lobbies and basements of the TT “before” the planes hit the building.

        How do you explain them away?

    2. Hammer says:

      First of all if you investigated, you would find hundreds of RELIABLE witnesses. Name them? no. you still haven’t been able to address my first question. Everyone keeps saying “the steel was weakened” I’m still saying there was MOLTEN STEEL in the basement of 3 three buildings that calapsed. WTC 7 had no jet fuel with winds blowing to make 2000 degrees, which still couldn’t melt steel.

      1. John says:

        Steel doesn’t have to melt to become structurally unsound, genius. If you did some actual research, and not just listen to your fellow conspiracy theorists who are trying to make a buck off a book or radio show, and asked some actual scientists and engineers about thermodynamics, you’d understand why all 3 buildings collapsed, but ignorance is bliss. So…carry on my little moron.

      2. Buzz says:

        I’m still saying there was MOLTEN STEEL in the basement of 3 three buildings that calapsed.

  118. Bumper Press says:

    Hammer forgot to mention to Sandy and Gary that there was another building that fell at free fall speed on 9/11, Building 7. It wasn’t hit by a plane, no jet fuel fire, yet it collapsed like a perfect controlled demolition. 47 story buildings do not just collapse by themselves!

  119. Dave Templeton says:

    name one of the many conspiracy theories, and if you can answer a few questions that would make it possible for the conspiracy theory to be true, then you win. My personal favorite is the controlled demolition theory, which is utterly impossible, and so easily proven impossible, that even if you believe in it right now, you will be forced to change your mind by your own answers to some simple, undeniable questions.

    Would you like to begin? If so, please state which of the controlled demolition theories you currently believe. Since there are so many, I want to focus on the best one you can come up with. This is open to any of you who think this was an inside job.

    1. Bumper Press says:

      No way. Jet fuel burns very fast. The black smoke after the plane struck was the jet fuel burning up. Sorry, 9/11 was a covert psyop (inside job) and bin Laden was never charged with that crime. The FBI themselves said they didn’t have enough evidence to connect him with it. See the FBI Most Wanted list.

  128. Han_In_Carbonite says:

    So asking for help with a package is suspicious behavior? The people who reported it as such and the officers who detained this man should be ashamed of themselves. As should the writer of this article. A reader can see the obvious contradiction in how the article first states that a police dog alerted authorities to the package, then goes on to say that it was passengers reporting “suspicious behavior”. The dog wasn’t brought in until authorities had been alerted. The author tried to make the story more like a terrorist threat than the reality of it being a bunch of self-centered, uncourteous people turning an old man needing help into the cops.

    I didn’t realize there were so many constitutional lawyers, explosives experts, physicists, structural engineers, specialists in thermodynamics, and wannabe “Black Ops” operators around. Perhaps a convention at the nearest Starbucks would be in order?

    To those of you that say 9/11 was everything the government says it was, I have a question, if it was the monumental National security failure as the government says it was, name one person that was held accountable?

    You can’t. In fact everyone in a position of influence was PROMOTED or given awards!

    Beyond the fact that basic laws of physics would have had to have been suspended to believe the governments story, there must be hundreds of coincidences that defy all mathematical probabilities.

    Seriously, I can’t imagine anyone at this stage, after all that there is out there now, that can possibly believe the governments version of 9/11. It can be only one of several things, people haven’t looked into it, they have and are in denial, or they’re part of the cover-up.

    I have studied 9/11 extensively, I would estimate I’ve spent over 1,000 hours, probably closer too 2,000, and I still can’t say how some of it was done, but I can tell you what did not happen, 19 hijackers from half-way around the world did NOT on their own pull-off 9/11, if they had anything to do with it at all.
