How did Jared Cano get materials for a catastrophic bombing?

Tampa, Fla. • Tampa police have arrested an expelled student after thwarting what they deemed a potentially "catastrophic" plot to set off a bomb at his former high school and cause mass casualties on the first day of classes next week, authorities said Wednesday.

Police Chief Jane Castor said Jared Cano, 17, had threatened to plant a bomb at Freedom High School in north Tampa and detonate the device when students return Tuesday.

The suspect was arrested Tuesday night after someone alerted police to the alleged plot.

In other words, any yahoo who is so stupid that he thinks he can get away with something like this (or that the resulting prison term would be tolerable) can go out and get or make the materials to make these bombs. If not for someone ratting him out, he might have succeeded. What we need is a war on terror. Oh, that's right - we've been waging one for the last DECADE.
