It seems John Smeaton has become a bit of a cult hero on the web.

I know I shouldn’t, but you’ve got to laugh about the whole affair. I think the terrorists must have been been watching too much A-Team, for it’s only in The A-Team that you can drive a Jeep full of propane into a building and cause a dramatic explosion. Surely everyone knows cars don’t necessarily explode when they’re set on fire, except on TV.
