FBI Releases Footage of Times Square Bomb Test

In the video released by the FBI, the Operational Technology Division sets up tests in a field in Osceola Mills, Pennsylvania, on June 29.

The explosive tests involve a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder stuffed with 250 pounds of ammonium nitrate and diesel fuel, along with three 25-pound propane tanks and two five-gallon gasoline containers.

These are the same materials allegedly found in the Times Square car bomb.

Taken from various angles, using normal and slow-motion cameras, the FBI video reveals that the explosion would have been quite large – almost certainly enough to kill scores of people in crowded Times Square.

In a memorandum urging a federal judge to sentence Shahzad to life in prison, prosecutors today said Shahzad told the FBI that – had the Times Square bomb been successful – he planned to build and set off another car bomb somewhere in New York City two weeks late
