Fake News, Meet Fake Bomb

  • Since when was only six stamps enough to mail a pipe bomb?
  • Why aren’t these stamps already stamped cancelled?
  • When you contrast this alleged “pipe bomb” to the size of those stamps, that so-called “bomb” is about the size of a tube of Chapstick.
  • I’m not saying they don’t exist, but I’m having trouble finding these types of metal pipe caps pictured that are for sale commercially.
Not really much of a bomb, wouldn’t you say?

Lt Cdr Thomas Sauer, US Navy (Retired) who according to his LinkedIn profile is a Naval Academy graduate and served as the Commanding Officer of a Naval EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) unit, had some rather interesting observations on Twitter regarding this so-called bomb.
