At the same time that al Qaeda
Internet chatter indicates a big operation is imminent, comes reports of the FBI
calling around to ammonium nitrate dealers in the American Midwest, warning
them that there have been several thefts of ammonium nitrate based fertilizers
in the region lately, and to report any disappearances of ammonium nitrate
products promptly. Probably coincidence, but since September 11, 2001, such
coincidences have taken on a new meaning.
