An improvised explosive device (IED) was found near train tracks in Pennsylvania. Could this IED in Pennsylvania be the start of terrorists trying to take revenge for the death of Osama bin Laden? It has been in the news that data gathered from Osama bin Laden's home had information about possible plots for al Qaeda to attack trains in the United States.
The bomb was found in Chester, Pennsylvania near Amtrak and Septa train tracks, notes CBS Philly. The bomb was located under the Commodore Barry Bridge. Could the plan have been to try to send a train off the bridge?
If this IED in Pennsylvania was al Qaeda at work they certainly are not wasting any time trying to get revenge for the murder of Osama bin Laden. However, since it has been in the news that Osama bin Laden had information about a plot to bomb trains; this could be a copycat event.
The IED contained two bottles holding a yellow liquid. Wires and a timer were attached to the device. The bomb squad of Delaware County identified the device as having explosive potential.
It is not yet been made public how the IED in Pennsylvania was found. It is likely that the major train companies have workers out looking around the tracks to ensure that there aren't any suspicious items left near train routes.
America is on high alert now. There probably will be attempts to attack our country now that Osama bin Laden is dead. Hopefully al Qaeda will never successfully attack our country again.
Train travel is typically a lot less stressful than flying or taking the bus. Now though, vigilance is warranted.
