Oh yes they did.

Police investigate Times Square blast

A small bomb caused minor damage to an empty military recruiting station in Times Square early Thursday, shaking guests in hotel rooms high above “the crossroads of the world.”

Police blocked off the area to investigate the explosion, which occurred at about 3:45 a.m. No one was injured. The blast left a gaping hole in the front window and shattered a glass door, twisting and blackening its metal frame.

Authorities said at a news conference that a witness saw a person on a bicycle wearing a backpack and acting suspiciously, but that no one saw a person place the device in front of the recruiting center.

“If it is something that’s directed toward American troops then it’s something that’s taken very seriously and is pretty unfortunate,” said Army Capt. Charlie Jaquillard, who is the commander of Army recruiting in Manhattan.

Bombing federal property gets treated rather seriously. I’ll place my dollar on having the culprits in custody within 25 days.

The Berkeley anti-USMC folks are probably jumping for joy, wishing they had that big of balls.

    Is it just me or does this:
    “The blast, which happened around 3:45 a.m., left a gaping hole in the front window and shattered a glass door, twisting and blackening its metal frame.”

    seem kind of weak to do this:
    “Witnesses staying at a Marriott hotel four blocks away said they could feel the building shake with the blast.

    “It shook the building. I thought it could have been thunder, but I looked down and there was a massive plume of smoke so I knew it was an explosion,” said Terry Leighton, 48, of London, who was staying on the 21st floor of the Marriott.”

    out of this:
    “When investigators went through the evidence, they found a metal ammunition box that is believed to have contained the explosive. It was being sent for testing. Kelly said the box was readily available in Army-Navy surplus stores.”

    Sensationalize much?

    Sounds like something from Code Pink or their ilk.
