Police in New York are still trying to figure out who replaced American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge with white flags this morning. NYPD Counter-Terrorism Chief John Miller says it appears the white flags were bleached out American flags and notes there doesn't appear to be any evidence of terrorism or political motivation. Miller says the gates that lead to the Manhattan and Brooklyn towers where the flags fly atop were locked. That's leading police to believe someone who has construction or bridge climbing experience may be responsible.
