FBI Raids Building In Elizabeth, NJ

Tyler Durden's picture

Just hours after a bomb explosion took place during a robotic attempt to disarm a home-made bomb after investigators uncovered five suspicious devices at a train station in Elizabeth, NJ, the FBI launched a raid at a building in Elizabeth.

Sept. 19, 2016: Elizabeth train station where device was found

Undercover agents and members of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force were taking part in the raid in an apartment above a restaurant, roughly one mile from the train station. Bomb dogs went from car to car and trash can to trash can along a residential street. It was unclear whether they found any possible suspects, or if the apartment belongs to the named suspect, the Afghani-born, naturalized US citizen Ahmad Khan Rahami, or if he has any connection to the raid.

As Reuters adds, the FBI was searching a location in Elizabeth, New Jersey, on Monday morning, the mayor said, after authorities detonated an explosive device left at a train station in the city, one of as many as five potential bombs found at the site.

"The FBI is executing a search warrant," Elizabeth Mayor Christian Bollwage said on CNN. "They will be there for the next few hours, going through this location to find any evidence possible, whether it's in relation to this incident or the Chelsea incident."

The suspicious devices turned up in a backpack near the train station Sunday night. One exploded when a bomb squad robot tried to disarm it. The discovery came a day after an explosion in Manhattan injured 29 people and an unexploded pressure-cooker device was found four blocks away, although investigators would not say whether the incidents were believed to be linked.

As reported earlier, Elizabeth Mayor Christian Bollwage said two men called police and reported seeing wires and a pipe coming out of the package after finding it in a trash can around 8:30 p.m.

Media at the scene reported hearing a loud explosion and smelling gunpowder at around 12:40 a.m. Monday after Bollwage said earlier that the Union County bomb squad’s robotic device indicated that the package could’ve been a live bomb. There was no report of injuries following the explosion. Bollwage said the FBI and state police would decide how to remove the devices.

I've very, very worried about the backlash against Muslim Americans after these incidents. Donald Trump and the 'alt right' will undoubtedly use these events to justify their Islamaphobia, and this will encourage extreme right wing groups to insult and harass Muslims. We have to resist the urge to blame all Muslims for this incident, and understand that it's a radical minority.

It is time to call a moratorium on responding directly to MDB. He has been posting multiple comments on threads lately and it is causing a log jam.

Peopel that don't understand he is a sarcastic troll just trying to rile everyone up. He dominates every comment section on every article. Just delete his account and comments.

Operation American Gladio has begun. Prepare accordingly.

I'm actually MORE worried about the budget at DHS.

Obomber must have cut the FBI false flag funding.

I mean, come on, just a little pipe bomb in a trash can for crying out loud!

No sobbing crisis actors? .. No amputees being pushed away in wheel chairs fumbling with their 'exposed bone' prosthetic limbs? No fake blood packets to add some gory realism? .. No heroes in cowboy hats?

These terrorist bombings are getting SUPER low-budget cheesy.

We the people demand more fearful scarier terror or we will insist the DHS be dismantled for non-performance.

They are never going to the Stasi wet dream checkpoint Grandma feel ups they want without some good green screen special effects and a body parts flying on CCTV as the train station fills up with toxic smoke as described by a choking and gasping Anderson Goober.

They need to save the real bombs and bullets for the election!

Are you not entertained??!!

I'm waiting for them to pull Hillary out of her drug induced coma, for a sound byte.

Good thing for leakers and hackers. A recent development in the info war.

Because while everyone is misdirected and "being scared" that's when evidence disappears"

All this will help Trump,would it not??

So many overlapping motives, who's to say?

Red Herrings and False Flags

What Clinton Foundation? What crimes of the FBI? Now that the POTUS has announce that he "will take it as a personal insult" if black americans dont vote for Hillary, what about the crimes of POTUS.

How about the fact that the US just violated ceasefire and killed 62 Syrian soldiers?

How about the fact that Hillary isnt well enough to remember she just said "bombings."


pods's picture

Bomb here>bomb over there.

Bomb here> Haitian Bribe/extortion

Bomb here> Hillary's a veggie

Actually the more I think about it, "bomb here" pretty much beats anything.

Guess that is why they are using them?

Why send in these corrupt idiots. They can't even find a freaking e-mail

J. Edgar Hoover could not find any evidence for the existence of the Mafia, either. Wink, wink, wink.

ROTFLMAO (rolling on the floor laughing my a** off).

Comey has benchmarked the FBI as a fucking joke, about 6 levels down on the Keystone Cops.

There's a big difference between the Agents on the ground and the "agents" in DC.  if you know what i mean.

chubbar's picture

I don't have respect for any agent, DC or otherwise, that after having just watched his CEO commit perjury and obstruction of justice, straps his shoulder holster on and goes off to arrest someone for any fucking crime. Accountability starts at home and if they don't have the sack to stand up to their system when it is corrupt then they don't have any business holding others accountable for their crimes.

Why would the FBI raid an abandoned empty building lol...just speculating of course as its all for show.

Boomberg's picture

Not an empty building, the restaurant downstairs had doughnuts.

earleflorida's picture

these nutjobs have safe houses scattered about in what is called a the arab neighborhood for access to the airport and nyc.

they have miniature bomb making factories where the basic bob making ingrediants are easily accessible without being labelled dual-use.

the nitogen and highly volitile elements must be mixed/prepared with extreme caution as to prevent fire or explosion giving away your location.

afghanistani's, pakistani's, and baluchistani's basically are the main characters/ of interest perpetrators.

the head`nutjob is very well educated, ... engineering in many fields of science and chemistry, and their networks are now global with sophisicated escape plans to go underground for months if not years and prepare for the next mission.

Hey, have you ever watched Fox News?

Just curious. lol.

reminds me of a bag of popcorn (box of chocolates?) when at the movies threatre watching a thriller/mystery, when... at the end of the movie the villain/ plot is exposed as i fevorishly eat the last of my popped popcorn from a now seemingly empty bag--- too find, but... these strange kernals of truth,... that the finale in [?] both[?] its anticipations has been exhausted...[?] by its treachery.

I'm sure this was some Muzzie nut trying to kill some bums. 

No chance the FBI had a hand in this. <wink>

No truth to the rumor that Chertoff's company has a new line up of bomb proof trash cans either.........

Hey, we aren't talking about Hillary and whether she is alive, right?

Hey everyone, tune in to MSLSD,
They have a pressure cooker, and an expert telling us how to make a bo...eh...eh...bangy thingy.

NoPension's picture

Holy shit, Batman....

The talking head babe on MSLSD just took extra time to clarify a Trump statement, in HIS benefit.
" Trump stated, the FBI knows who the bad guys are, but don't arrest them".

They pointed out, Mr Trump is speaking in general terms, and not specifically on this case.

She'll be fired this afternoon.

Pack up the family members, ship em to Gitmo.  That'll learn em.

That should be Holy Writ - if Achmed Jr. fucks up, the whole family goes back to Shitholistan

CuttingEdge's picture

Heres the problem with the refugees in the main - the whole family (women, kids and grandparents) are already in Shitholistan. That the majority of the young male migrants have zero parental control or guidance is a serious shitstorm recipe going forward, particularly for Germany. Hopefully Ofuckwit doesn't let too many more into the US before his pathetic and embarrassing 8 years is over.

How did they identify Afghani-born, naturalized US citizen Ahmad Khan Rahami so quickly? Obvious. He is a member of the FBI/CIA False Flag Fear Team.

Duh.  He left his passport next to the bomb.

Yes, they can survive plane crashes and explosions and look brand new as if they were just dropped on the scene after the fact.

Ignatius's picture

And he had $4700 stuffed in his sock and a plane ticket for Gaza.

drivenZ's picture

surveillance footage? fingerprints? bomb analysis? there was a cellphone attached to one of the bombs. 


it's been 60 hours since the Friday bombing in Manhattan. There are 35,000 NYPD officers and the state and FBI are obviously lending support.  I would hope they could figure something out in that amount of time.
