al-Qaeda Did Not Visit Harmon Park

From the Update: ‘HOAX BOMB’ — A Parks Department employee discovered an object resembling a pipe bomb this morning at Harmon Park in Decatur, Police Chief Rex Hoskins said.The object was taken to the police station, and the Denton Bomb Squad was called in. The squad detonated the explosive and classified it as a “hoax bomb.” “This was either an attempt to make one, or somebody wanting it to look like a pipe bomb,” Hoskins said. Question: You have something that looks like a bomb so you move it to another location and then have the bomb squad take a look at it?
