Bloomberg: ‘I Have My Own Army In The NYPD’

I am not making this up. Yesterday, in a speech at MIT, Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City, said those very words. Here’s David Taintor of TPM, quoting Bloomberg and police Comissioner Ray Kelly:

“I have my own army in the NYPD, which is the seventh biggest army in the world,” Bloomberg said, according to the New York Observer. “I have my own State Department, much to Foggy Bottom’s annoyance. We have the United Nations in New York, and so we have an entree into the diplomatic world that Washington does not have.”

What a town! Bloomberg’s right, though. In September, NYPD Comissioner Ray Kelly told CBS News that his police force could take down an airplane “in a very extreme situation.” We don’t know by what means, of course.

If Bloomie gets nukes, watch out!

AFTERTHOUGHT: that “entree into the diplomatic world”? It’s probably just take-out chop suey…
