    Plot to blow up a bridge is foiled by the FBI

    FBI: 5 Men Charged in Ohio Bridge Bomb Plot

    Five men described by federal authorities as anarchists angry with corporate America and the government were charged Tuesday with plotting to bomb an Ohio bridge linking two wealthy Cleveland suburbs. The men were arrested Monday night after unknowingly working with an FBI informant for months, a strategy that federal investigators have used repeatedly in recent years to nab alleged terrorists.
    Got 'em.

    Good job, FBI.

    They were going to use smoke bombs until the FBI informant said he could get explosives, it is unfortunately entrapment.

    I just got home and haven't really read much into this story, but at least one of them was an Occupy Cleveland protester.

    My thoughts exactly. They look like a bunch of noobs to me.

    On a serious note, good to see them dealt with.

    You can tell by looking at them that these gentlemen had a well thought-out plan. Real criminal masterminds, right there.

    Building a bomb and setting it off on a bridge isn't rocket science.

    Uncovering an undercover FBI agent is a bit more difficult, apparently.

    Occupy Leaders Apparently Involved in Bridge Bomb Plot, Suspects Named

    Apparently two OWS organizers were involved in this: Brandon Baxter and Anthony Hayne. Bad PR for the OWS folks.
