DHS requests plastic explosives and then hides request

With the odd purchases of ammunition by the Department of Homeland Security I decided to see what else they have purchased. To my surprise a solicitation for a flexible explosive was posted. This explosive is known as Prima Sheet. Prima sheet comes in two styles:

Prima Sheet 1000 is PETN based, and Prima Sheet 2000 is RDX based. Both are water resistant high explosives and this material is available to the US military.

And, according to the manufacturer, Ensign-Bickford Aerospace & Defense Company the materials uses are:
  • Breaching
  • Military demolition
  • Ordnance disposal
  • Metal hardening
  • Metal forming and welding
  • Skin severance charge
With regards to breaching, the information sheets state:

Demolition/BreachingPRIMASHEET® 1000 is an excellent tool for general demolition applications. It can be easily cut to any desired shape and applied with adhesive or incorporated into a charge holder. The flexible sheet can be applied as strips directly on a the target or used to improvise linear shape charges.

Demolition/BreachingPRIMASHEET® 2000 has a higher density than C-4, is unaffected by charge manipulation, and therefore offers a more consistent performance in all standard applications. It can be easily cut to a desired shape and applied with adhesive or incorporated into a charger holder.

What was lacking in the solicitation was the quantity required, budget requirements, shipping dates, and other pertinent information a business would require to know in order to put forth a bid. Here is a screen capture of the solicitation request:

So I sent a letter to the point of contact, Delisa Y Corbett. And this was the email I sent:

“Hello Ms. Corbett,

The solicitation listed above did not state the quantity of the Prima Sheet, nor the type (type 1000 or type 2000).

Could you send me the PDF of the specifications?

Thank you.

James Smith”

I never received a response.

So in doing follow up due to the lack of communication by the “Most Open Administration”, I typed in “Prima Sheet” in the search engine at, and set it for the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA). The results:

I found this to be odd. I clearly typed in the right words, but the search engine could not find “Prima Sheet”. So I typed in the Solicitation number, HSTS02-12-Q-CAN059, and this was the result:

So let’s put this all into context:

The TSA might use Prima Sheet to destroy luggage and other contraband. Fine. But when a request for more information is requested – that request is ignored.

When the material being solicited for does not show up in the search engine, and the solicitation number vanishes from the FBO website, now we have something here. We have a secret. And when governments keep secrets from their own people you have mistrust. Mistrust leads to fear, and fear leads to anger. Anger feeds a revolt and a revolution is thus born.

How did I find the original solicitation notice? I used the National Security Administration’s golden child of software: Google.

In the face of potential martial law coming either before or after this fall’s election, knowing that this solicitation has become a black ops is frightening, to say the least.

DHS/FEMA now has the ability to carry a plastic explosive more powerful that C4 in a briefcase, that each page can be cut like strips and put around locks to gain entry into the homes of innocent Americans.

And not word will be uttered in opposition by our Congressmen or our other elected voices until it’s too late. As long as they receive a paycheck, they will stay silent.

And the American people will suffer tyranny yet again under the boot of a spineless puppet.

A big round of applause from EIA! Those damned rascals need all the scrutiny they can get, and a little more. Thank you!

They can try and blow all the locks they want-we won't be there, and they'll never find us.

I can understand both sides of this coin. The government I am sure does not want to openly advertise DHS has explosives, but at the same time the people should know they have explosives since its their tax dollars that pays for it (hence the freedom of information act)

The problems with the freedom of information act is that you have to know what it is you are asking for, and it is not always easy.

I have my doubts that there is anything sinister here about the explosives and nothing to be paranoid about it. More than likely the stuff is blown up in training exercises and demonstrations for Hazmat technicians, law enforcement, firefighters and other branches of DHS as part of their training to recognize the material. Not only to recognize but to appreciate how powerful just a tiny bit can be.

I doubt you are going to see this with an aggresive use its training under DHS. Thats what a demolitions expert is for in the military.

If you are going to be paranoid, fear the military before DHS. DHS does not have the capacity to train in demolitions nor is that the intent- be realistic. The military already does this so why have DHS do this?

The only thing I would accuse DHS for is very wasteful spending. They have federal grants though the wazoo and probably could make a lot of money on stocks if you had the inside track on purchase orders. They buy tons of things grants that municipalities are dependant on after awhile.

My biggest fear right now is the looming debt ceiling. All of these alphabet soup organizations, ICE, DHS, TSA, FEMA, and etc cost money and are throwing federal money like a child in a candy store. Many municipalities to solve financial problems are dependant on federal grants.

The problem with civil unrest I fear will happen soon. The debt ceiling fiasco that was raised last summer is coming back again. At the rate it is coming It could happen at the end of this year or ealy next year. If it is not raised, the US defaults and a rail road of events will happen in its wake.

If the US defaults, the federal grants halt (the credit tap is dry). If the grants halt, many municipalities dependant on them will have to have mass layoffs of firefighter, law enforcement, and other public safety. In my homestate many of the cities avoided MAJOR layoffs through grants that last 2 years. Well those grants are coming to an end soon. There won't be another grantcoming. Some of the essential services are going to be decimated with layoffs within a years time.

Thats when the SHTF-

Well they might be using it for training which is doubtful but it would be nice to know the quantity now wouldn't it? The quantity would tell you a lot and that is probably why they pulled the info. Just can't trust them.

I can see this as both a concern and, at the same time, a lesser-concern. In the end for the common citizen, it comes down to the people and logistics. DHS, and the other agencies are half full of a bunch of mouth-breathing dolts. Those that aren't mouth breathing dolts, half again of those are skeptical of the gov. I find it difficult to think that they could build the necessary staffing level with necessary skills of tyrannical goons to run this kind of op - wide-scale breaching and tyranny of the public.

That's the big thing they're missing: well trained, brainwashed boots on the ground, that will do whatever they are told. If it is the case, watch for whistleblowers soon. The only geo where the bureaucracy could hope to build such a force without generating an airdrop sized paper trail would be in DC metro/ Qantico, or more likely Langley, etc.

This find definitely justifies further digging. We need some intelligence from those groups. Anybody know some constitution friendly FBI agents that could do some gentle digging and poking?

AnonymousAugust 5, 2012 7:29 PM thats right on . If you think you can be on the defense at home and defeat this evil force, you are wrong and you and yours will be dead in 3 hours or less. No matter how well prepared, or how large your numbers, you are no match for this fighting force with its equipment. You will know when it is time to bug out, and go on the offensive when you hear or see the real patriots in the military start the revolution. You can join up with them, as they will have pretty much the same equipment as the evil ones, or you can go on the offensive using guerrilla tactics in small groups . As you make your kills you will be able to pick up some necessary equipment from their fallen or dead. Guerrilla tactics are the one thing this evil group of traitors can not fight against. If you look at all the defeats against this standing military it has always been with guerrilla tactics. The time is short if your prepared, prepare more and rethink your tactics. if your not prepared you had better hurry. The sign will be obvious the revolution has started and get ready to join the fight. May the Lord God almighty guide you and keep you and yours safe while in combat against these traitors and evil peoples.

if we can know the amount of bullets and what type they are using/stocking up on , why would knowing the amount of "flat shapable explosive charges" be any different?so let me get this straight they ordered flat explosives basically that can be formed into shapes or even flat pages, like in a book, so is the next 9/11 going to be a book bomber in which we all need to burn all our books , you know for our safety? or maybe used in a suitcase and exploded somewhere to make it look like mini nuke suitcase? id start mapping routes to local caves ^^ its about to go down!

Hopefully, there are a number of non-communist or non-fascist employees working within DHS that will comply with the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and alert U.S. patriots of the location of these stock piles so that they can be destroyed. It is time for patriotic employees of the various federal agencies to wake up and that corrective action to protect the U. S. Constitution from our domestic Rothschild "red shield" terriorist that work in the White House and that have taken over control of various federal agencies. The Rockefeller criminal cabel is also deeply involved in trying to destroy the Republic of the United States of America. Remove and contain the Rothschild and Rockefeller DNA from humanity.

What about considering this FBO in light of the solicitation for Role Players?

Now they just need to find some employees willing to volunteer to do a 'terrorism drill' and tell them the backpack they will be carrying is a fake bomb, as part of the exercise, then bang.... yet another false flag. So, you think that is hard?

These people who plan these things will not escape a most horrific judgement... so that is some comfort.
