Right up the road from me. I was thinking about going there. Now reports that books are in back packs. The whole area is locked down.

There’s a plane taking off southward from National as I type. OTOH, I have not heard planes fly down the Potomac (the incoming route today with southerly winds) for a while now. So you (Fox) could be right.

WGRZ - Channel 2, Buffalo
UPDATE: A high ranking source tells 2 On Your Side that the traffic stop in Niagara Falls this morning was routine, but police are searching items in the vehicle and residents are being asked to stay away from the area. The source also tells us the people in the car are NOT Russian nationals. They are US citizens and are cooperating with police.

UPDATE: Two men in custody as investigation into Massachusetts car continues in Falls

Niagara Falls Police Superintendent Bryan DalPorto said two men are being detained as Falls and State Police continue to investigate a car with Massachusetts plates on Elmwood Avenue.

DalPorto said the two men are not Russion nationals but would not comment further on the subject.

Falls police received a tip from a passerby of the car and the car was stopped by a patrolman. The two men in the car are being detained for questioning, DalPorto said.

Meanwhile, Falls and New York State Police have closed off Elmwood Avenue between 18th and 19th streets while the state police bomb squad’s robotic device investigates the black Nissan.

“We’re not sure of the contents of the car or what their activity is,” DalPorto said of the situation.

It’s early in the investigation, added Capt. Craig Hanesworth of the New York State Police.

“There are items in the car,” he said. “what they are, we don’t know.”

Police were not evacuating the area behind City Market, but police were urging people in the area to stay in their homes.

Still nothing in the DC / Pentagon airspace. There is a steady stream of takeoffs south (away from DC). So I wonder if Fox is right.

Don’t be so hasty. This may well be the reset that he had in mind, i.e., a perpetual state of emergency due to terrorists.

Car was found in Massachusetts. Glad I am not (as far as I know) anywhere near it.

We got a robocall from the Chief of Police this morning warning that they will spraying for mosquitoes today. They use very low flying helicopters and spray every puddle in town. My wife said it looked like you touch them out the back window last year. Must generate a lot of 911 calls when they do that.

Almost everyone I know has a backpack

Didn't some school somewhere require that students had to switch to transparent backpacks so they could easily see the contents?

Of course they are not “Russian” - how ridiculous of the clueless media to report that.

What is more important and frightening is thet we allow these muslims from the former Soviet Union to enter our nation but the thousands—even after they killed hundreds of kids in Beslan and did so many other terrorist jobs in Russia.

You can bet these aren’t Russian Orthodox Russians

I'm surprised that the Chechen perps behind the Boston Marathan bombing aren't being called "Russians" by the media. Technically, Chechnya is part of Russia, so the media could try to spin the bombing as a terrorist attack by "whites" or by "Russians." That would put a PC slant on things by sidestepping the Muslim issue.
