UPDATED 8/11: NYPD ON THE ALERT FOR QAEDA 'BOMB':
New York Dirty Bomb?
There are several reports tonight that New York City police are increasing activity in Mid-Town Manhattan and at bridges and tunnels in response to unconfirmed reports that there might be a nuclear device coming into the city.
Channel 11 news just reported that there is talk of extending police shifts. They showed film of police searching vehicles near Penn Station.
Channel 9 My News and CBS Radio also carried story. See myFoxNY here.
The NYPD has modified its counter-terrorism posture Friday because of unverified intelligence regarding a dirty bomb risk.
This change includes an increased deployment of radiological sensors -- including those mounted on vehicles, boats and helicopters as well as those carried by NYPD personnel.
In addition, vehicle checkpoints are being established in New York City, including lower Manhattan, and at certain approaches to the city from neighboring areas.

Just how insane are New Yorkers? Snapped this two minutes ago. You just can't make this stuff up
UPDATE: 6:48pm : uh ......never mind
No worries :)
But I hasten to add , would law enforcement summon and employ all of their resources based on one "unsubstantiated" report from a singular internet site? Helllllloooooooooooooo.
Blaming Debka is a joke.
