suspicious packages

The devices sent to top former and current officials appear designed to scare rather than kill. None of the 12 suspicious packages containing would-be pipe bombs have exploded. Investigators said that major or subtle design flaws prevented at least some from exploding. “What they wanted to do was scare people, cause disruption, but not necessarily hurt anybody,” according to former CIA agent Matthew Bradley. Rep. Rick Crawford, an ex-explosive ordnance disposal technician with the U.S. Army, agreed. “While it may be a device that could function I think it was designed ... to strike fear,” he said.
