This is coolbert:
From a comment to the blog from Ruth:
"and to think that the country is operating 34 ammonium nitrate plant with about 6,000 retailers widespread in the US mainland. And considering that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh used 4,000 pounds (1,800 kilograms) of ammonium nitrate to blow up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995 proving the deadly properties of ammonium nitrate. This can be seen as a dent on the implementation of “Ammonium Nitrate Security Program” and US Chemical Safety Laws."
And Ruth is 110 % correct!!
This West, TX ammonium nitrate plant not even "on the map" so far as Homeland Security concerned. Was not [?] subject to ordinary safeguards, security, background checks of employees, etc.
So I have seen as reported.
Even more than a decade after 9/11 this being so inexplicable!
All the more peculiar given the history of ANFO [ammonium nitrate fuel oil] bombs of prodigious proportions as used by disaffected, angry, and hate filled persons with terrorist motivations.
Those explosions as can be had from an ANFO bomb enormous. Only a nuclear detonation exceeds in scale!
The "recipe" for such an explosive well known to the terrorist and degenerate individuals whose goal is mayhem on a catastrophic basis.
These plants exploded in situ also might be a favorite tactic of the terrorist, level the plant with a gigantic explosive having the detonation appear as an accident.
That French AZT ammonium nitrate plant "accidentally" blown sky [slightly more than a week after 9/11] high the cause never verified or determined with certainty, the suspect attired in a strange manner indicative to some of a suicide mission, that never established however as fact.
