The new faces of terror
It appears the bomber who targeted a military recruiting station in Times Square came in this country via Canada, so you know what that means. Soon the Minutemen will rush north to construct a fence the entire 5,522 miles that separate us from the threat of Canadian extremists. Or not. Maybe they only want to protect our border singular. You know, the brown border. The one with Mexicans on the other side.
High-level law enforcement sources told ABC News that a border stop in Canada has yielded evidence that may be linked to the case, and that individuals are being sought in connection with the case.
Canadian authorities declined to comment on the matter.
Sources said the border stop took place about a month ago, but today U.S. and Canadian authorities were revisiting the incident because of circumstantial evidence noticed at the time of the stop and the behavior of one of four individuals in the car that was stopped.
At the time of the stop, one young man fled the vehicle on foot, law enforcement sources said.
