The Great Boston Bomb Scare of Aught-Seven ('07)

Before returning to 2007 in Boston, a few words about present day bombs in Boston:

Information is Power... that is why the FBI did not tell Boston authorities about Mr. Tsarnaev's trip to Dagestan: keep the locals dependent on the Feds. I know it sounds like a line from one of the Die Hard scripts (bless Bruce Willis), but it is the reality.

The Leviathan and Behemoth Anti-Terrorism Intelligence Agency we set up at now little expense after 9/11 as the Department of Homeland Security does not even do the one thing that it was really intended to do.
Remember back after 9/11 when it was said that a major problem was the Intel agencies not communicating? Well, $100 billion later and Mum's still the word.

It will never work as it is now conceptualized,  but I do not want to talk about that now.

I want to talk about the City of Boston and its security agencies and The Great Boston Bomb Scare of Aught-Seven (2007)

I had a post back in February of 2007 titled The Terror Of Frylock :

By now you must know that the Boston Security people arrested those responsible for:
and this was on an Ad Campaign for Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Frylock is the Fries guy. When asked to comment, he said " No Comment."

The Bomb Scare was based on an ad campaign for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, of which Frylock is a member, being the fry guy on the left in the picture above.
The Wikipedia entry says:
The 2007 Boston bomb scare occurred on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 after both the Boston Police Department and Boston Fire Department mistakenly identified battery-powered LED placards resembling the Mooninite characters of the Cartoon Network show Aqua Teen Hunger Force, as improvised explosive devices.[1][2] Placed throughout Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding cities of Cambridge and Somerville, these devices were part of a guerrilla marketing advertising campaign for Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, a film based on the animated television series Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim.[2]
I do not mean to belittle or kvetch or insult anyone. I'm just reporting the facts.
