"Police have created some distance between the cooler and people and are "in an abundance of caution," looking into whether the white cooler was abandoned by someone, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said."

I bet it's full of beer. ICE COLD BEER. Hopefully the bomb unit person will crack one open after they open it up.
better safe than sorry eludes this crowd eh?
It's great, how were all prepared for fear, thanks to a staged Time Square bomb propagated by CIA. It gives us all reason to justify wars in the Middle East.

"Why Aren't There More Terrorist Attacks?
As the details of the Times Square car bomb attempt emerge in the wake of Faisal Shahzad's arrest Monday night, one thing has already been made clear: Terrorism is fairly easy. All you need is a gun or a bomb, and a crowded target. Guns are easy to buy. Bombs are easy to make. Crowded targets -- not only in New York, but all over the country -- are easy to come by. If you're willing to die in the aftermath of your attack, you could launch a pretty effective terrorist attack with a few days of planning, maybe less.
But if it's so easy, why aren't there more terrorist attacks like the failed car bomb in New York's Times Square? Or the terrorist shootings in Mumbai? Or the Moscow subway bombings? After the enormous horror and tragedy of 9/11, why have the past eight years been so safe in the U.S.?
There are actually several answers to this question. One, terrorist attacks are harder to pull off than popular imagination -- and the movies -- lead everyone to believe. Two, there are far fewer terrorists than the political rhetoric of the past eight years leads everyone to believe. And three, random minor terrorist attacks don't serve Islamic terrorists' interests right now."
haven't our own "home grown" terrorist rate gone up though. even they call them self militants or something. (in the us)
