On Friday, they caught a contract worker trying to bring a pipe bomb into a nuclear power plant located 50 miles west of Phoenix, Arizona. According to a report in USA Today, bomb squad tests determined that the capped pipe was a credible explosive device. It was the real deal. But, for some reason, Capt. Paul Chagolla of the local sheriff's office told the press, "At this point I don't have any information that would indicate that you have domestic terrorism at hand." Wait a minute. As the article in USA Today explains, "Two elementary schools and a high school in the area were locked down briefly when a plant employee notified the district." And the FBI was called in. Of course they were! There was a pipe bomb at a nuclear plant! But somehow it's not terrorism. So I'm guessing that the suspect here is not of Middle Eastern ancestry. Otherwise, the terror alert level would surely have been elevated to orange (at least), and the suspect would now be on his way to Gitmo. Sleep well. ###
