New York officials are investigating who parked a car in New York's Times Square with bomb making materials inside. License plates on a green SUV did notmatch and authorities are now looking through surveillance camera footage.Authorities say the bomb looked "amateurish" but cannot rule out domestic orinternational terrorism.

Police now say they have videotape of a possible suspect shedding clothing in an alley and putting it in a bag. The surveillance video shows a white man in his 40s taking off one shirt, revealing another underneath.

Commissioner Raymond Kelly says officers are on the way to a Pennsylvania town to talk to a tourist who might have recorded the suspect on his video camera.

Also, Kelly says investigators found eight bags of an unknown substance in a gun locker that was in the smoking SUV. He says the substance "looks and feels" like fertilizer but tests are pending.

The commissioner also says there's no evidence that a Pakistani Taliban videotaped claim to the failed car bombing is valid.

Police found the SUV parked on one of the prime blocks for Broadway shows Saturday night. Thousands of tourists were cleared from the area for 10 hours. The bomb was dismantled, and no one was hurt.

    Sounds credible, Ryan. Whatever the final story I can't take this bomb seriously. It's another example of how these stories are created by incompetent terrorists. So, OBL pulls off 9/11 but after that this is the best even amateur terrorists can do? Not buying it.

    Since my credibility is 100% on this site as usual, maybe people should listen to me. Obviously, this was attempt was carried out by the radical "Revolution Muslim" group based out of NYC. The SUV was parked directly in front of the Viacom building which owns MTV, and Comedy Central... This is an attempted backlash over the South Park incident. As usual, Nuff said.

    Fox News already made the Timothy McVeigh connection about how that truck bomb did all that damage. Just a reminder of the official story in case you forgot. I think the big one will be blamed on Al Qaida but the small stuff will be blamed on white Americans.

    Another false flag event. If it were a REAL terrorist it would have gone off, just like if the underwear bomber were real the bomb (which wasn't a bomb) would have been detonated at cruise altitude. It's a show folks. We are being conditioned to blame whomever the gov't wants us to blame once the "Minot nuke" is set off.
