Waiting for Godot.
An Egyptian man on a Sudanese passport, they didn't say Muslim because the media protects the jihad, was building an unmanned drone to carry 600 lbs of explosives. I wonder if his target were all the Hollyweird leftards in the Hamptons.
Of course the "authorities" have already ruled there were not ties to terror just like the dead indigent Somalian Muslim found dead with a pound of cyanide (zyklon b) at a luxury hotel steps away from the DNC. Nothing to see folks, keep moving.
But the real question as pointed out in the comment section is, what was everyone doing while they watched these guys out at Calverton getting ready to fly during those months? Calverton, btw, is home to Republic builder of the A-10 and Grumman, the F-14. Were they waiting until the thing flew to make an arrest? Or were they following everyone involved seeing where it all lead.
Unmanned Drone On Long Island Sparks Terror Investigation Infidel Bloggers Alliance source NBC News (hat tip her royal whyness)
An unmanned drone being built by an engineer on Long Island sparked a large counter-terrorism investigation across the New York area, officials tell WNBC.com. Police said they had stumbled upon overnight testing of the drone at a little-used airstrip in Calverton, Long Island.
The investigation began in February of last year, when investigators first learned testing of the drone was underway. Officials said the drone was being designed to carry more than 600 pounds of explosives.
"It could be in the air for 8-10 hours and there's potential harm if it is carrying a large amount of toxic material," NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly said in explaining why his department's counterterrorism officials were concerned.
Police surveillance video obtained by News 4 New York shows a white van rolling onto the tarmac, a small group of men jumping out and ground testing the unmanned flight vehicle.
Kelly said the engineer building the drone never reported his work to any agency including the Federal Aviation Administration or local authorities. Investigators said concern increased for a time when they learned the man behind the project was an Egyptian national who had entered the U.S. on a Sudanese passport.
"It was such a bizarre set of circumstances," said New York State Homeland Security Director Michael Balboni. "Of course we watched it as closely as we did anything that was on our radar screen."
NYPD officials worked with Suffolk County police and the FBI to determine there were no ties to terror. Under questioning, the engineer said he was an inventor hoping to sell this drone model to the U.S. military.
