Department of Homeland Security orders over a half ton of high explosives

A solicitation placed today at the Government marketplace shows that the Department of Homeland Security, via the Transportation Safety Administration has requested 700 pounds of High Density Ammonium Nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX, with a delivery date by 31 August, 2012. That is less than 4 days before the start of the Democratic National Convention.

Why would the DHS/TSA order such material? From their Statement of Work:
Name of Requisitioning Office: National Canine Program (NCP)/ Canine Explosives Section (CES) 
SECTION II: Purpose 
Scope of the Product, Service, or Outcome: 
The CES requires the 700 pounds of High Density Ammonium Nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX to provide Canine Explosive Training Aids (CETAs) to NCP participants. The supplier must be able to meet the exact requirements by August 31st, 2012. Substitutions for this product are not acceptable 
SECTION III: Background 
The CES is required to provide NCP participants with CETAs. The CES has selected to use High Density Ammonium Nitrate and A-5 Flake RDX as it will provide NCP participants with a more realistic training aid and compliment the current aids provided.
This all comes on the heels of a solicitation for sheet style high powered plastic explosives that we reported on earlier in the week.

The problem is very clear. As stated in the ATF Law Enforcement Guide to Explosives Incident Reporting document:
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.

For the sake of argument, 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 does not meet the smell test. No pun intended.

We will continue to watch the developments and report back to you.

How else are they gonna get your gun safe open?


Don't even compare Tim Mcveigh with anything because no one knows which of the three or four bombs they found in Oklahoma city to compare it to.

This time DHS is doing the dirty work. The FBI and CIA have both been caught doing false flags. Now the FBI and CIA can say this time it`s not us it`s real terrorists.Funny thing is they will not be totally incorrect. One thing for sure, they do not want those explosives for training dogs.

yep yep yep yep and yep. and the sheeple just set by and watch their country being taken over by the real terroist. How many will buy what their planning even with this kinda of info out there. sad

It's obvious that the AN and RDX DHS ordered will be used in the manufacture of small IED devices for detonation somewhere in the homeland, thus "justifying" the need for greater military cooperation with law enforcement in the detection of these explosive items as deceptively argued recently by U.S. military advisors before Congress. Naturally, canine units will also be trained as a cover for this heinous program with absolutely no accounting for the quantity and distribution of the compounds actually used. This is our government at work, after all. Look for a spate of false flag bombing events "to necessitate" the expansion of DHS and military intrusion into our lives. Can you believe it?

BFD! Why is it that every trickle of information (or dis-information) is so blown out of proportion. Do you really believe that if they didn't want you to know about would be reading about it?!!!

Get real folks. More "news" for you to waste your time on.

Now why would they want a 1/2 ton of Ammonium Nitrate unless they had another patsy like Tim McVeigh. With DHS having access to the real stuff, it makes no sense to get this unless they were going to set up a false flag.

I want DHS on the list of suspects, and if they only get investigated by the Internet that's okay because that's where the real investigating is accomplished anyway. Everyone has been watching this coup coming for years now since Kelloge Brown and Root was paid over 300 million back in 2005 to setup the concentration camps across America for the fourth Riech, and this news is on top of the 1.4 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition DHS has already purchased for just such an emergency.
