Several hours ago the FBI dramatically announced it had disrupted a conspiracy to blow up a major highway bridge in the Cleveland, OH area by five men loosely connected to the Occupy movement. DO NOT ACCEPT THIS NARRATIVE AT FACE VALUE. I'm fairly certain that what we are seeing here is a continuation by the Obama administration of a Bush practice named by Keith Olbermann as "The Nexus of Politics and Terror". That is, whenever there is a major political event or some embarrassing news about to break that is unfavorable to the powers-that-be, the feds conveniently "foil" some kind of terror threat to the country that sucks up the corporate news coverage from what they don't want to be covered. I'm almost certain that is what is happening here.
The five schmucks arrested in connection with this "plot" supposedly have anarchist connections to the Occupy movement, listing their occupations on Facebook as "Occupy Movement". This looks to be another case of a bunch of big-talking pub crawlers being talked into trying to do something by an FBI "informant" that they would never have the means or skills to do on their own, and then busted with much ado by the feds at a time the government would rather you not pay attention to some other big event.
Thom, this is going to be the major lead on every corporate newscast tonight, I guarantee it. They are going to pretty much either ignore the Occupy protests or use this "plot" to discredit the movement.
