Times Square Eyewitness: Bomb Scare Looked Like Drill

A You Tube clip shot by an eyewitness near the Times Square car bomb incident on Saturday night highlights why many people who were caught up in the bomb scare thought that the police were running a drill at the time of the botched attack.

Eyewitnesses, including those who comment on the video on the You Tube page, are baffled as to why police chose to evacuate some locations and not others, as if certain buildings had been chosen to be evacuated beforehand while others were left alone.

Despite the fact that people were being told to leave McDonalds, police did not stop anyone from entering the theatre next door. In addition, the staff at McDonalds were not told to leave and remained in the restaurant.

“None of this made sense when the audience was let in to see West Side Story,” states the text in the video.

“I was actually at a concert in nokia theatre while this was happening. I’m surprised the place didn’t get evacuated too,” writes a respondent to the clip.

“The employees looking out at us all looked confused,” states the eyewitness, suggesting they were not informed about what was going on by police nor were they told to leave.

“Either the terrorists were running a drill, or the cops were…it sure seemed like it could have been a drill,” states the description to the eyewitness video.

An additional detail that suggests police bomb drills may have been taking place in and around the incident is the fact that Lee County Sheriff Michael Scott told WINK News that he was in New York during the weekend training with the New York bomb squad. While it’s unclear whether or not the drills were related to the bomb scare, Scott said that he was at the scene of the incident working with New York police.

“Somebody asked me why I didn’t start taking pictures of the car, I was not in tourist mode at that time I was in cop mode, and you just sort of sense the danger,” said Scott.

According to the news anchor, Scott had been training with the bomb squad before he was called to work the car bomb case just hours later.

Why are drills and exercises surrounding real attacks important? While it remains to be seen whether potential drills surrounding the Times Square incident were of any significance, false flag terror attacks are habitually accompanied by almost identical exercises which provide plausible deniability if any evidence comes to light of inside involvement.

Both 9/11 and the 7/7 London bombings were accompanied by drills, which in the case of 7/7 were virtually identical to the times and locations at which the real bombings took place, a statistically impossible coincidence.

The Joe Stack kamikaze attack also took place at the precise moment a Hazmat team was stationed next to the IRS building in Austin Texas conducting an exercise.

The fact that authorities in New York have almost instantly exploited the incident to push for an expansion of invasive surveillance cameras across the city provokes questions as to how much police knew about the vehicle before they commenced with a baffling evacuation process which seemed to focus around certain buildings and not the area as a whole, as would be expected if authorities really feared that a car bomb was about to go off.

The Times Square video of the bomber might be more telling. The suspect appeared to exhibit conflicting behavior consistent with some individuals that have mental issues. For example, the suspect in the video appeared completely oblivious to the surveillance cameras that inundated the NYC street he walked away from Pathfinder, then stop not far from the Pathfinder; then acted in a convert manner, turning completely around and using the pretense of shedding his shirt to steal glances of the vehicle had set to blow. Yet concurrently the suspect makes no effort bring or wear a cap to hide his face and head from cameras or anyone near the scene of the crime. Subsequently it was reported the suspect left his house keys on the Pathfinder’s king ring in the vehicle; had removed the vehicle VIN number but not the serial number on the frame and axle among an array of other errors. The suspect appears erratic in his thought processes doing some crime related tasks well and while overlooking obvious others. It should be note how easily the suspect started talking to the feds telling them most anything they wanted to know. Is it possible the suspect is subject to mental illnesses that might explain some of his behavior?
