JFK Plot and Bay Ridge
The FBI and NYPD have just broken up a plot to blow up the pipeline that runs from Linden NJ to JFK Airport.
Jet fuel, gasoline, and heating oil are transported through these pipes. How the hell to they do this? Heating oil is very heavy, while jet fuel is basically kerosene. Are there multiple pipes? Do they run the different fuels thruough the one pipe?
This pipe cuts right through Bay Ridge. It enters Brooklyn at the bicycle path at 77th Street or so right by the water. There's a warning sign down there, saying not to dig or drop anchor by there.
Not sure where it does so, but the fuel pipeline turns north and then east, so that it runs directly underneath the Bay Ridge Towers apartments. And it runs right underneath the R and parallel to the N subway lines, taken by huge numbers of Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst residents daily.
The good news is that the authorities caught this plot before anything happened. The inferno that these sons of bitches envisioned may not have even been possible--pipeline officials said that they could have minimized any fires by means of cutoff valves.
But pipeline security in Bay Ridge is inadequate. There has been a small homeless camp underneath the Bay Ridge Towers for many decades. The homeless enter the camp through holes in nearby fences or via the Bay Ridge Avenue R train station, walking north along through the southbound tunnel for about four blocks, after which they can walk down the hill to the camp--where the pipeline is located.
If groups of homeless have at-will access to the pipeline area, where they basically sleep right next to it, then you can bet the house that the Islamic terrorists can have access to that pipeline. Anytime they want. Sleep well, Brooklyn.
Reminder to file: don't forget to bring extra toothpaste on the trip to China.
