Early on the morning of Thursday, March 6, 2008, a bomb exploded in New Yorks Times Square at the Armed Forces Recruiting Station. The suspect rode a blue Ross bicycle west on 37th Street, took a right up Sixth Avenue, and made a left on 47th Street before turning left down Seventh Avenue. The suspect got off his bike near the recruiting station at West 43rd Street and Seventh Avenue, placed the explosive device at the recruiting station, lit a fuse, and fled the scene on the bicycle. Although the suspect appears to be working alone, he or she may have had a lookout or surveillance team of as many as five other individuals in Times Square at the time of the attack. The suspect then rode his or her bike south on Broadway before turning left on 38th Street. The bike was later recovered in a dumpster near Madison Avenue and 38th Street."

Thanks for posting that photo, Joe.
I was going to pull the thread because I can see by the posts the posters either don’t care about the military or just didn’t bother to read the whole press release at the link.
Because you posted the photo, I’ll keep up this thread.
I thank God no one was hurt in this incident.
still a good link:

SNIPPET: “Army Capt. Charlie Jaquillard, who is the commander of Army recruiting in Manhattan, said no one was inside the station at the time where the Marines, Air Force and Navy also recruit.
“If it is something that’s directed toward American troops than it’s something that’s taken very seriously and is pretty unfortunate,” he said.”
SNIPPET: “Witnesses staying at a Marriott hotel four blocks away said they could feel the building shake with the blast.
“I was up on the 44th floor and I could feel it. It was a big bang,” said Darla Peck, 25, of Portland, Oregon.
“It shook the building. I thought it could have been thunder, but I looked down and there was a massive plume of smoke so I knew it was an explosion,” said Terry Leighton, 48, of London, who was staying on the 21st floor of the Marriot.”
