To be honest, no terrorist would ever use a vehicle as ostentatious as that. Come on! A camouflaged vehicle grabs attention on the road and a terrorist with a bomb wants to be as discreet as he can.
Nonetheless, its better safe than sorry and given the recent real bomb threats, you can't blame the police for doing what they did.
