According to ABC News, the FBI has concluded that a powdery substance mailed to several locations – including 5 hotels – near the site of Sunday’s Super Bowl, is apparently nothing more than corn starch and baking soda.
They are conducting further tests on it, but said it’s “within normal values”, whatever that means.
Powder was also sent to New York City mayor Giuliani’s business in downtown Manhattan.
A federal law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to comment publicly, said powder from one envelope tested positive for baking soda.
An ESPN reporter was told that law enforcement officials believe the envelopes were sent by someone who has a history of doing this, with tests always coming back negative. A sick jokester, I suppose.
The local hospital, Hackensack University Medical Center, received a few people for evaluation because they came into contact with the letters, but their spokeswoman said there were no illnesses or injuries as a result.
The suspicious letters went to at least 5 hotels in New Jersey: an Econo Lodge in Carlstadt, a Homestead Suites hotel in East Rutherford and a Renaissance Inn in Rutherford. Investigators intercepted more envelopes from a mail truck before they got to a Holiday Inn Express and a Hampton Inn.
Interestingly, a letter was sent to Homewood Suites containing yellow powder and a typed letter that referenced “al-Qaida and the Dallas FBI”.
As finally reported by the New York Times in 2012, the FBI is more engaged in “terror plots” in the U.S. than the terrorists themselves:
THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.
But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.
As we reported yesterday, there are many strange coincidences about this year’s Super Bowl that have us conspiracy theorists a little nervous: Will we see another 9/11 type of event, a hostage crisis that lasts for days and ends with more draconian laws than we already have? Or is this just another day in a post-9/11 nightmare that America has lived for the last 12 years?
