The Discovery cam (#2) is on its normal position again, it looks like it went up one level (the top of 1WTC is visible again).

Isn't that just a platform to support the construction of the next elevator level? Or does it have anything to do with the skylobby?

Sorry. I have been living under the (false?) assumption that I am my own person. I guess I can't have my own opinion...

BTW, the reason I had the "nuts" icon is because I know it won't happen. No need to call it "shit".

Yeah exactly, and I happen to agree with you too.

Port Authority police supervisor Lt. James O'Neill reportedly ordered a PATH train with a suspicious package proceed from Jersey City to the World Trade Center, even though a bomb-sniffing K9 unit was just minutes away from the station. In an exclusive, the Post reports that passengers were evacuated from the train at Exchange Place just before 8 p.m. on Wednesday after a "suspicious box" was spotted. But despite protestations from subordinates, O'Neill reportedly cleared the train for departure before the bomb squad arrived—and sources say he made the call from his desk at Journal Square, three miles from the bomb scare.
"It was a clear dereliction of duty," one police source tells the tabloid. If so, it wouldn't have been the first time for O'Neill, who was reprimanded just last year for letting a PATH train proceed despite a suspicious package report, according to the Post's sources. We've contacted the Port Authority to try and get confirmation on all this (because we all know you've got to take the Post's sources with a grain of salt) but for now it seems that O'Neill could find himself... reprimanded again! His latest SNAFU came to light because K-9 cop Salvatore LoBrutto—who finally inspected the train only after it arrived at the WTC—wrote a letter to top Port Authority officials blasting O'Neill.
Fortunately for O'Neill (and all of us), the suspicious package was not a bomb that blew up the Hudson River tunnel, but rather a toy helicopter in a box. Still, it's a chilling incident nonetheless, especially since terrorists have eyed the tunnel as a target. And it comes less than a month after a Jersey man managed to walk through the tunnel from Manhattan without being noticed until he emerged in Jersey City. By the way, it wasn't a Port Authority cop or security guard who spotted him, but a Port Authority contractor.

Port Authority police union leader defends cop who left unattended bag on WTC-bound train


Port Authority police officers stand guard outside the World Trade Center PATH station ahead of President Obama's visit to Ground Zero last month.

Quote:
The president of the union representing Port Authority police lieutenants said proper procedures were followed when an evacuated PATH train was cleared by one of his members to move through a Hudson River tunnel to the World Trade Center station with an unattended package on board.
"There’s a major league difference between an unattended bag and a suspicious bag," said Lt. Jeff Baumbach, president of the Port Authority Police Lieutenants Benevolent Association. "And procedures were all followed."
Baumbach was referring to an incident on Wednesday night, when a PATH train was cleared by Port Authority Police Lt. James O’Niell to go from the Exchange Place Station in Jersey City to the World Trade Center in Manhattan, an incident first reported by The New York Post.
A Port Authority official said the bag was spotted following a call to the agency reporting that a toy helicopter had been left on board a World Trade Center bound PATH train. The contents of the bag was indeed, a toy remote controlled helicopter, the official said. The incident is under review.
The Post said it was the second time in two years that O’Niell had allowed a train to proceed with an unchecked package on board. In 2008, O’Niell took a female officer on a joyride on the New Jersey Turnpike while both were on duty.
Baumbach insisted the ride was not part of a pattern of poor judgment by O’Neill that also included the two PATH train incidents. "To me, it’s apples and oranges," he said.
Apart from having a stop at Ground Zero, officials said the PATH system itself was the target of an al Qaeda bomb plot thwarted by the FBI in 2006. And one police official questioned O’Niell’s judgment for failing to keep the train at Exchange Place waiting for a K-9 unit that had been called to the scene and was only minutes away. Instead, another Port Authority dog sniffed out the package once the train reached the New York side of the river.
^A bit O/T but relevant to the security concerns involved on Tower 1.
