Why Is the U.S. State Department Buying High Explosives?

 SCG News

Apparently the U.S. State Department needs blasting caps, detonating cords and a variety of high explosives. If you think that sounds weird, wait till you read the purchase order yourself.

The U.S. State Department’s job is to implement the foreign policy of the United States and U.S. diplomacy efforts. It is essentially the equivalent of a foreign ministry in other countries. It’s not a branch of the military, and it’s not a demolition company, so why on earth did they put in an order for blasting caps, detonating cords, and a variety of high explosives on I’m not making this up. Click here to go look at the page yourself. Just in case they take the page down I’ve uploaded a screenshot here.

Below is the list of items they are currently accepting bids for:

The Department of State requires the following items, Meet or Exceed, to the following:

 LI 001: 1.1 Comp C-4 M112, 1.25 lb Block w/Taggant, 360, EA;

Aren’t these of things supposed to get routed through the CIA? Aren’t they the ones in charge of covert mayhem and mischief?

Perhaps Victoria Nuland and company have gone off the reservation.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.
