A smug, seemingly self-important dunce of a reporter on CNN TV cable news told us the name of the explosive used by ISIS terrorists, that instructions for making it are easily findable on the Internet and that all ingredients can be found at drug and hardware stores. Heck, you can make such a bomb at home, he said.
It is TATP — triacetone triperoxide — a combination of easy-to-obtain materials. The reporter was Peter Bergen.
Listening to the fellow, I wondered whether some sort of loonacy inbreeding has taken over CNN News. Maybe it's a strange gas in the air ducts of the building or did CNN get some sort of corporate discount on lobotomies for its newscasters to give them the carefree right to inform an audience on how to make homemade bombs?
What the fellow shared was beyond all boundaries of professional journalism, and just plain reckless, dangerous and irresponsible.
Why doesn't he cook up some TATP live on the air, keeping in mind that it becomes unstable, as he reported, when it gets warm.
