..., How stupid was this?
<span style="font-size: 14pt">Hotel staff find “terrorist” note</span>
The staff at a West Carthage, NY hotel was terrified after they discovered what they believed to be a terrorist note while cleaning a room.
The note was discovered at the Pleasant Night Inn in West Carthage, which mentioned a device & the phrase "They must pay. Only martyrdom can make this right."
Fort Drum's Criminal Investigation Division was notified.
As it turned out, the note was left by someone hired by the military to play the role of a terrorist during training exercises on post & the note was a prop & part of the training.
The note's discovery did lead military officials to hurry at the end of the funeral for Staff Sergeant Daniel Rodriguez, which was held in Carthage.
The military & the company which supplied the actor apologized and said it is reminding employees to put away any materials they use.
