Posters of Osama bin Laden and beheadings in Iraq. [But it's not terror related.]

Terrorism? Naah . . .

Last Friday, firefighters conducting a routine inspection in a Brooklyn supermarket found 200 automobile airbags and a room lined with posters of Osama bin Laden and beheadings in Iraq. An element in the airbags can be used to make pipe bombs. The owner of the building, according to the New York Post, "served jail time in the late 1970s and early 1980s for arson, reckless endangerment, weapons possession and conspiracy, according to the records." But officials were definite: this has nothing to do with terrorism.

It doesn't? What does it have to do with, then? Was this a local Rotary Club chapter that decided to sell pipe bombs as a fundraiser and thought that a few posters of Osama and Iraqi beheadings might liven things up?

(5-6) UPDATE: Much more info from Spencer HERE, with footnotes.

Why does this happen?

As soon as there's an explosion, [DC] sniper shootings, tanker trucks exploding, middle eastern looking guys taking pictures of water treatment plants, or the 14 Syrians on Northwest Flight 327 it is NOT and I repeat NOT Terrorism related.

How in the do these brainiacs in local LEO's, HLS, Border Patrol, FBI , or the Media know with 100% certainty that it's NOT terrorism related when they don't know how it was caused, who caused, and why they caused it?

They all must have a magic crystal ball that sees into the future!!

I guess this "isn't terror related" either!!
