still, the easy availability and potential for misuse triggered this bulletin four years ago: "the fbi has identified multiple incidents where criminals and extremists have explored the possibility of employing the binary explosive mixture obtained from exploding targets to commit criminal and terrorist acts." if the las vegas gunman had placed some of that material down at the street level and aimed at it with a scoped rifle.sam rabadi, former atf special agent in charge:"the binary explosives could have been detonated with rifle slugs from those rifles from the 32nd floor. one for the effect of creating chaos among the crowd, and secondly as a result of the explosion widespread shrapnel raining on the crowd." natsot: explosion tom foreman, cnn correspondent: "so how much destructive power was packed into the gunman's car? if he set off all fifty pounds of this stuff which police say they found, shrapnel could have easily traveled the length of a
football field in all directions, pushing the number of dead and wounded much higher.
