Oh yes they did.
A small bomb caused minor damage to an empty military recruiting station inearly 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.
