Cops have 2nd video in NYC bomb scare

New York (CNN) – Law enforcement officials early Monday pored through evidence, including a 20-second video, after a failed car bombing attempt in Times Square over the weekend.

The video released by authorities showed an image of a man, who police say is possibly connected to the attempted bombing, changing his shirt along a New York street. A balding man with dark hair is seen removing a shirt and putting it in a bag before walking out of the camera's view from inside a restaurant.

Authorities plan to release another video in the case, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told CNN's "American Morning" on Monday.

Kelly said the person in the video "is seen, we believe, running north on Broadway." He said the video was obtained from a tourist.

The investigation was focusing on examinations of a Nissan Pathfinder where the attempted homemade bomb was placed. On Sunday, Kelly said the vehicle was being inspected for fingerprints, hair, fibers and other evidence that may help identify who was responsible. Read more

    There are well over 100 security cameras in the Amsterdam International Airport and yet not a single photo of the well dressed man that assisted the Nigerian bomber thru the many security checks and security gates were released to the public to see. Even thou two creditable witness's observed that man speaking for the Bomber, vouching for the Bomber and helping that Bomber move past the security checkpoints. A yet not a single photo of that man was released, go figure!

    Obviously many that have left comments here have never worked for the US Postal Service. In one particular office I worked in, we had to FORCE the US Governmental agents to cover over the security cameras in the bathrooms and those overlooking each of the bathroom stalls.

    I find it very disturbing that Americans have literally no rights in regards to where their biometrics from facial recognition software is stored and who that information is shared with. America has enormous databases solely storing biometrics to immediately spot YOU. They are collected from CCTV cameras across America, in Casino's, Airports, Subways etc. and then sold or shipped to numerous databases around the world.

    It seems very telling that given there are HUNDREDS of closed circuit security cameras thru out Amsterdam's International Airport and yet after several months NOT A SINGLE PHOTO of the well dressed man coaching, walking beside and speaking for the known Nigerian jetliner Bomber have been released.

    And yet within a hour, video from several of the 80 security camera's in the Times Square area of the car bomb suspect are shown around the world, go figure!
