Bomb Disposal Officer: Today’s Pipe Bombs – Appear to be “Hoax Devices” – Why Was Reporter Allowed Near “Live” Bomb?

Several bombs were sent out to Democrat leaders Wednesday – none of which detonated.

The Secret Service announced that suspicious packages were sent to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

George Soros, former AG Eric Holder, Rep. Maxine Waters were also sent mail bombs.

The return address name on the suspicious packages sent to Clinton, Obama, Holder and Maxine Waters belonged to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.


One of the bombs appeared to have the ISIS flag taped on it.

Former Bomb disposal officer Tom Sauer posted a thread on Twitter today discussing the incidents.

1.) Proper pipe bombs don’t have wires connected to both ends. That’s dumb.

2.) You can find timers / remote control receivers WAY smaller than whatever that white box is. A proper timer would best be stored inside the pipe, making it fully encapsulated. That thing is just silly looking.

3.) Bottom Line: Whoever made that wanted it to be painfully obvious to anyone and everyone that it’s a “bomb.”

This is nearly the same as a bundle of road flares wrapped together with an old-timey alarm clock ticking away.

4.) Hoax Devices” are FAR more common than real ones. In which case, we should ask ourselves what the motives of the “bomber” are and “who benefits?”

Go ahead. Think deeply and critically.
