The Department of State is shopping around for hundreds of pounds of plastic explosives and detonator devices, a new report reveals, raising concerns regarding an American agency that usually deals with foreign policy, not dynamite procurement.
Even after several solicitations for explosives were posted publically on the website where federal offices can ask for quotes from contractors, however, representatives at the United States State Dept. have reportedly laughed at questions from reporters wanting to know why the requests have been made.
Earlier this week, Steve Peacock at WND became the first to write about procurement documents on FBO.gov in which the State Dept. filed no fewer than four separate orders for high-powered explosives, detonating chords, blasting caps and fuse igniters.
