Default Bringing Calm to Chaos: San Bernardino

NYT has a short version of a post-action report on the San Bernardino attacks, by the Police Foundation; it has lots of lessons to be learnt again methinks from my armchair.

Here is a taster:
Quote:
The report shows how officers from multiple agencies handled a rapidly unfolding crisis, making decisions on the fly, often with little coordination or direction. The results were quick, sometimes heroic responses that may have saved lives but also created confusion and mistakes, though none proved fatal.

Perhaps most disturbing, more than six hours passed before officers searched a bag the killers had left at the scene of the shooting. Inside were three pipe bombs.

ISIS in St. Cloud, just a nut case or an overlap of the two?

Default Not one, not two, more bombs found

Just found this report, from agencies:
Quote:
Five suspected explosive devices have been found in a backpack near a train station in New Jersey as the security alert gripping America ratcheted up following the Manhattan bombing.
Link:https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-phone-reports

Whatever is happening I was surprised at the apparent details entering the public domain yesterday, seen on Twitter. One cited the Manhattan bomb being taken into the location in a suitcase by one man, then two men removing and walking off - caught on CCTV.

Default A Model Joint Terror Investigation

From The Soufan Group:
Quote:
Bottom Line Up Front: • The combined efforts of local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies led to an arrest approximately 48 hours after multiple bombings in New York and New Jersey.
• Despite the complex nature of the investigation, all problems and missteps were avoided through an impressive display of interagency cooperation.
• Civilians played a critical role at various stages of the investigation, from reporting locations of possible devices to the location of the suspect himself.
• Along with societal resilience, effective interagency counterterrorism cooperation will prove invaluable in a heightened terror threat environment.

I note the investigation went well - even when the NYPD Commissioner and the FBI's Asst. Director - were new in post.

Ok, I'll buy the 'clean hands' theory.

SHANGHAI (AP) -- For a few thousand dollars, Chinese companies offer to export a powerful chemical that has been killing unsuspecting drug users and is so lethal that it presents a potential terrorism threat, an Associated Press investigation has found.
The AP identified 12 Chinese businesses that said they would export the chemical - a synthetic opioid known as carfentanil - to the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium and Australia for as little as $2,750 a kilogram
