Not that I believe in Fear mongering...

I'm a little concerned about this story:
I would not be surprised if you were unaware of this story. There has been next to no press about it since the 2 tons of ammonium nitrate, twice that used in the Oklahoma City bombing, showed up missing from a shipment bound for North Vancouver.
With less than a month until the world’s eyes are B.C., Mounties are still trying to account for missing ammonium nitrate.
Two tonnes of the chemical compound, which has been used in several terrorist bombings, was originally reported missing to the RCMP on Jan. 6.
Kinder Morgan, a pipeline and energy-storing company, had been transporting 6,000 bags of material from Alberta to North Vancouver when two bags could not be accounted for days before Christmas.
The discrepancy was discovered when the shipment was moved by a third-party trucking company to a facility.

Initially the missing material was chalked up to a clerical error but last night the RCMP released an odd video statement claiming that they could not verify this conclusion. [UPDATE: It is worth noting that the video statement below was delivered to a camera only but in a setting that makes it appear it was in front of a press conference. There were no reporters present to ask questions.]
