Evacuated residents return home –

On Friday morning a crew put some of those solid “sludge-like” chemicals into a poly-lined cubic yard-sized cardboard box. That cleanup crew left the building around 4 p.m. Then around 7:15 p.m. some of those chemicals self-combusted, catching on fire.

The Mishawaka Fire Department went to the scene to put out the fire and when they went inside saw a large white vapor cloud.

Rep. : Well it’s very simple. When I listen to the US Ambassador Susan Rice today, several words came to mind: asinine, naive, inept, incompetent and borderline ignorant because when you understand that the Egyptian government, there intelligence services, put out a letter talking about potential threat of attacks, uprisings about a week before this. It was even printed in the Jerusalem Post on 9-11… For Susan Rice to say this was not a well coordinated attack, first of all, I’d have to ask her what is her line of expertise in understanding what a well coordinated attack is. Because this was not happenstance. It was not coincidence. It was well planned. Well coordinated.
