Bloomberg News Appears to Show Mayor Bloomberg Disagreeing With His Own Police Department About the Bomb in Times Square reports that New Yorkers Avert ‘Deadly Event’; Police Disarm Bomb:

May 2 (Bloomberg) -- New York police disarmed a bomb in a sport utility vehicle parked in Times Square, averting a potential attack near the heart of the city’s theater district on a Saturday evening.

“We are very lucky that we avoided what could have been a very deadly event,” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told reporters . . ."

Later in the article, however, we find:

Bomb squad technicians used a robotic dismantler to take apart a crude explosive device that included propane tanks, Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne, the department’s chief spokesman, said in a telephone interview earlier.

Parts of the heavily trafficked area were evacuated at about 6:35 p.m. There were no injuries and the bomb appeared to be unable to explode, Browne said.
. . .

And then Mayor Bloomberg appears to argue with Mr. Browne:

“It certainly could have exploded and have a decent amount of impact,” Bloomberg said.

You would think that Bloomberg News would at least take care to get its story straight this time. Talk about the decline of standards . . .

  1. Yes, we get it, they are striving to deliver truth as are the Police. There has yet to be an NYPD investigation into 9/11?
