Can anyone explain what the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs with 700 pounds of High Density Ammonium Nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX? Well the DHS placed a solicitationby way of the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) for these products with a delivery date of August 31, 2012. For those of you in the know, these are the ingredients to build a makeshift bomb. However the project claims it is for “Canine Explosive Training Aids”. One wonders what they need with over half a ton of explosive nitrates.
Congress gave oversight to DHS of procurement of ammonium nitrate after requesting they “regulate the sale and transfer of ammonium nitrate by an ammonium nitrate facility…to prevent the misappropriation or use of ammonium nitrate in an act of terrorism.”
Susanne Posel writes,
The Ammonium Nitrate Security Program focuses on preventing a terrorist attack by use of ammonium nitrate in a home-made bomb by requiring that its sale and those that purchase it be registered with the DHS. Purchasers are screened against the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).
In the solicitation, the DHS did not specify information that a corporation seeking to reply with a bid would need. In addition, DHS is requesting that high density ammonium nitrate and RDX (the required booster) be delivered to an undisclosed government facility in downtown Atlantic City, NJ.
The Pentagon has come before Congress decrying that domestic terrorist attacks may increase with the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the US. They are asking Congress to lay aside Posse Comitatus (PCA) in an effort to increase their use of military on the streets of America.
Ed Corcoran writes,
In order to detonate ammonium nitrate, the use of a booster is required. Commercially, Pentolite and RDX are used as a booster, while the military will often use TNT as the booster.
Instead of using a poor quality analog (aka hamburger) for Ammonium Nitrate to train dogs, they are requesting High Density, or the Kobe Beef of Ammonium Nitrate (AN). And in order to detonate the AN, RDX is used. The Department of Homeland Security is requesting BOTH components of a binary explosive compound to be delivered to a government facility in downtown Atlantic City, New Jersey.
To put the amount of explosives into perspective, Timothy McVeigh used 5,000 pounds of AN and motor racing fuel. RDX has a much greater explosive capacity than racing fuel, and McVeigh was a party to mass murder and destruction that would be on par with these materials being detonated.
Assuming arguendo, if a dog needed only 1 ounce of each material in order to be trained and tested, there is enough material for 11,200 dogs at the same time.
This is just a friendly public service announcement. This is simply FYI should there be something taking place in the next month or two on a grand scale. According to our federal government there is nothing to worry about. In fact, they’ve taken the time to scrub it from their history, Orwellian style.
Get ready for the October surprise.
``Any~~One can change the color of a skunk, they can certainly change the ODOR in Homeland security..!! My, My, to train over 11,000 dogs. Went fishing this year, got a 24 lb. trout..!! It's this -------------Big..! Stop sailor..
I just now seen that Tish also posted this information here on PFA earlier.
The NOAA Is Shopping For 46,000 Rounds Of Ammunition

Following a request for 450 million rounds of ammunition for DHS and ICE earlier this year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is looking for 46,000 rounds of ammunition for the National Weather Service.
The National Weather Service stations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass., are slated to receive 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets.
Jacketed hollow points usually have a layer of copper around the lead to provide strength and prevent the barrel of the gun getting fouled up with soft lead.
Hollow point bulletsare designed to expand when they enter the body, causing as much damage as possible to internal organs and tissue. They've been illegal in international warfare since 1899.
6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey and another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets will be handed over to the station in St. Petersburg, Florida.
St. Pete. is the only city that's not receiving 100 or more paper targets to assist with training of agency issued sidearms.
Two hundred targets are going to Maine and Massachusetts, but only 100 to New Jersey. So, 46,000 rounds and 500 targets.
One commenter pointed out that the NOAA overseas the National Marine Fisheries Servicethat's responsible for all U.S. marine resources. The aquisition mentions this agency, NMFS and the OLE — Office of law Enforcement.
Again, this recent batch of ammunition is in addition to the 450 million rounds requested by DHS and ICEin March.
And that, BI Military & Defense commenter tc84 points out, is before Friday's updated request by DHS, putting the ammunition requested by that group at 750,000 rounds.
The ammo will be given to Obama`s private army to be used against American people as they try to take over America..
"And that, BI Military & Defense commenter tc84 points out, is before Friday's updated request by DHS, putting the ammunition requested by that group at 750,000 rounds."
I believe that's actually 750.000,000, not thousand.
We all know that those in the white house are not working for America, they are working to bring the brotherhood to power here in the USA. Just look at what they do in Afganistan, making IADs and guess who the DHS really works for. Thats why the borders are wide open so more terrorist and arms from libya can come in and go to the muslim terrorist trainning camp, and now they are just waitting for the orders to attack in full and not the little attacks they have been doing around the USA.
This is another example. Screenshot or print everything of any interest like me.
