    Seems Richmond International Airport in VA was evacuated too due to a threatening call…

    Coordinated attacks, perhaps? Just thinking out loud.

    Has #NSA identified the suspects yet? Surely they know who it is…

      I’m pretty sure this was a maintenance related explosion rather than an attack. Who would attack a maintenance shed?

      NSA won’t have any info on them if they are Chechnyans.

    I used to go to School in the Atlanta area, and LOVED riding that little “Subway Train” back and forth from the Terminal to the concourses. Jawamax 8<{D}
