The New York Police Department has issued a department-wide alert for cops to be on the watch for explosives that disappeared from Newark International Airport more than two months ago. The explosive, Primasheet, a plastic bonded explosive with enough power to bring down a jetliner, according to some experts, disappeared in early September.
The material was last seen while cops in the Port Authority Police Department’s K-9 Unit were using it to train bomb-sniffing dogs aboard a Continental Airlines jet, according to the Port Authority.
Port Authority officials could not be reached for comment yesterday. At the time the Primasheet was discovered to be missing, they said they did not think terrorists had anything to do with its disappearance and that their investigation was focused on who signed the explosive in and out of the agency’s training center at the Newark airport.
On Monday # after simultaneous terror attacks outside two Istanbul synagogues that killed 20 and injured 300, and with the holy month of Ramadan coming to a close # the NYPD issued a formal operations order about the missing Primasheet.
