Dude Picks the Exact Wrong Moment to Send ‘We Did It’ Letter

Times Square Recruiting Center

We don’t know what the chances of a coincidence like this happening are, but the fact that the letters and photos received on Capitol Hill yesterday and the Times Square bombing have nothing to do with one another is a total mindfuck.

The office's window was smashed, and a door was damaged. Traffic was interrupted for a while, but now it appears to be back to normal. The Department of Homeland Security says it's investigating whether it was terrorism-related, but according to NY1, there wasn't a sense of panic in the area this morning. Explained droll host Pat Kiernan: "It seemed people were annoyed by the nuisance as much as anything."

Bloomberg called the attack on the recruitment office an insult to our troops and added that "New York City is back and open for business." NYPD chief Ray Kelly said the device was not "particularly sophisticated" and explained that there is one witness who saw a suspicious hooded man on a bicycle passing the recruiting station just before the explosion.
