Breaking news on MSNBC say's the FDNY was extinguishing a car fire when they had discovered multiple propane tanks, black powder and a timing device in back of a dark colored SUV, does anyone have any updates?

Latest from CNN:
Several blocks around New York's Times Square were closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic Saturday night after a police officer saw smoke emanating from a box inside a parked car, according to authorities.

New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne told CNN that the shutdown began after a foot patrol officer passed by a Nissan Pathfinder with Connecticut plates on 45th Street between and 7th and 8th Avenues. Browne said the officer noticed a box inside the car with smoke coming out.

Browne said officials at the scene were using a robot to search inside the car. The police department's public information office said the box and other items found in the search are not confirmed at this time to be a bomb.

The Marriott Marquee Hotel wasn't allowing anyone to enter or leave the hotel Saturday night, and at least one nearby restaurant, TGI Friday's, had closed to customers and was evacuating staff.

You can see what is going on at the Times Square Cam-EarthCam website.

Times Square Cam - EarthCam

Funny to see Mayor Bloomberg wearing a tuxedo while giving a news briefing. He was at a Wash D.C
dinner event at the time this story broke.

Why they haven't reopened the cross streets yet beats me. Amateurs, just a matter of time before they get
caught. There is a lot of evidence left behind, those stolen CT license plates came from a junkyard, they are trying to track down the owner of that junkyard.

Edit: As of 5:00am they have finally reopened the streets for traffic, I guess the NYPD worked the clock for the double time OT. Good thing for
mayor Micheal Reubens Bloomberg that he wasn't in his palace in Bermuda when this happened.....

More like some whack job schmuck who didn't like the Lion King and couldn't figure out how to properly follow directions in the Anarchist Cookbook.

Also I'm confident they will find who did this and if they were any any connections to a terrorist organization or even a Tea Party or whatever nutjob.

I had to laugh when Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for this failed terrorist attack. If Al-Qaeda even exists... The guy they are looking for is a clean shaven white male in his 40's.....

They got the guy already,good job. One less filthy muslim savage off the streets of NYC. Hopefully he will
start talking and give up the people who helped him in this failed plot. These people multiply like roaches.

Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad, suspect in foiled Times Square bomb plot, arrested at JFK
They only multiply when they cannot find a willing goat or sheep. (That's Baaad) If any group in the world should receive free contraceptives, it is these buggers.

Not really. You could have a cop every 5 feet in Times Square, and the guy still can drive up and park. Unless you are saying you want the police stopping every car on the road and searching for a bomb?
