Who dun it? http://bronx.ny1.com/content/news/2...-mystery-of-white-flags-over-brooklyn-bridge/ An investigation is underway after police say two American flags on top of the Brooklyn Bridge were apparently bleached white. ... Construction workers noticed the switch around 5:30 a.m., and emergency service officers were called in. "What they found were two flags, one on each tower, that were approximately 20 feet by 11 feet that are actually appear to be American flags with stars and stripes that had been bleached white," Counterterrorism Deputy Commissioner Josh Miller said. Also found? Large pans that apparently served to block the lights on the tower, which are behind locked gates. "There's some indication of some good deal of pre-operational planning, perhaps some indication that they have experience climbing, in construction or in bridgework—or that they may have actually been up there before," Miller said.
