Do not believe the reassurances you might hear about the explosives found in an East Village cemetery.

Several blocks of C-4 were found inside a black plastic garbage baginside the Marble Cemetery on East Second Street, between First and Second Avenues. Several attempts have been made to explain that these weren’t bombs and could not be detonated because there were no blasting caps found with the C-4.

That’s pure nonsense.

This has all the makings of a classic dead drop. Someone who acquired the C-4 likely left it for someone who intended to use it for destructive purposes. The two sides of the transaction never meet, which means that if either side is caught they cannot reveal the identities of their co-conspirators.

This, lads and lasses, is how terrorist cells work.
