Terrorists to Attack Bus at Reston Town Center in Hilarious Sequel to "Speed;" Keanu Reeves Not Appearing in This Film

Speed_movie_poster.jpgTry not to panic, but terrorists will be planting a bomb on a bus at the Reston Town Center bright and early this morning, all part of a video being produced by the FBI.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday, the FBI and Rocket Media Group will be using a Fairfax Connector bus to film a training video. The taping, which is scheduled to last eight hours, will take place in the Reston Town Center area in front of the parking garage complex on Freedom Drive.

In the scene being filmed, a terrorist will plant a simulated bomb on a transit bus. The video aims to illustrate how security cameras can be used to help bring such individuals to justice.

The Town Center will remain open to the public during the filming, according to Andy Silverstein of Rocket Media Group.
A simulated terrorist attack during the height of the morning rush hour near a busy office/retail complex? What could possibly go wrong?

    Bet the bus driver and passengers would want attack prevention rather than eventual justice.

  2. Big deal. I carry a half-digested bomb on the bus every day. I feel sorry for those downwind from me.

  3. I was thinking the same thing as Uplands. Good thing we have all those post 9/11 cameras so after the badguys blow us (and usually themselves) to smithereens they can be scraped off the road and punished :-\

  4. Why don't they use a crowded RIBS bus? How about terrorists plant a thermonuclear device in one of the purple bug traps around Reston? They call into the Fairfax County police command center and give them 24 hours to release all the prisoners from Guantanamo or the bug traps go off.

  6. "The video aims to illustrate how security cameras can be used to help bring such individuals to justice."

    Not to be gross, but given what appears to be the recently developed al-Qaeda tactic of hiding a bomb up the old wazoo, maybe they ought to trade in those security cameras for colonscopes?
