Alleged OWS Activitst, Aaron Greene, Caught With Bomb Making Materials: Media Bias and Denials Ensue

Share

One thing that can be counted upon is that OWS participants will be caught in bomb plots.  Then, the second thing that can be guaranteed is that OWS will deny it, and the MSM will help cover it up.  Also, you can guarantee that the MSM will blame Conservatives for any adverse event that occurs, even in the absence of all evidence.  The Blaze has information on the arrest…

Aaron Greene, 31, and his nine-months pregnant girlfriend, Morgan Gliedman, 27, were apparently found to have these elements in addition to bomb-making instructions, a stack of papers with a cover sheet entitled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,” and other weapons according to sources speaking with The New York Post.

Some of Greene’s associates have purportedly called his views “extreme.” Police made the discoveries and subsequent arrests when they went to the couple’s home over the weekend to look for Gliedman who is wanted for purported credit-card theft. The Post has more about the bizarre alleged findings:

A detective discovered a plastic container with seven grams of a white chemical powder called HMTD, which is so powerful, cops evacuated several nearby buildings.

Police also found a flare launcher, which is a commercial replica of a grenade launcher; a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun; ammo; and nine high-capacity rifle magazines, the sources said.

Cops also allegedly uncovered papers about creating homemade booby traps, improvised submachine guns, and various handwritten notebooks containing chemical formulas.

Then, Newsbusters has information regarding the media coverage…

 

ABC News, the same network which falsely linked the Tea Party to a mass killing in Colorado, on Wednesday ignored an alleged connection between Occupy Wall Street and a wealthy New York City couple apparently planning a terrorist spree. Instead, a Good Morning America journalist referred to the investigation as a “preppy terror case.”

The New York Post on Monday reported that Morgan Gliedman and her boyfriend, Aaron Greene, have been arrested after a vast number of guns, bombs and the “Terrorist Encyclopedia” were found in their home. According to the Post, the two are “the privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and…a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist.” Yet, GMA reporter John Muller simply described, “She is from a prominent family on New York’s ritzy upper east side. He is a Harvard graduate.

Later in the segment, Muller insisted, “So far, potential targets or a motive have not been determined. And police say the couple have no known links to any terrorist organizations.”

Yet, over on CBS this Morning, reporter Seth Doane actually mentioned the connection: “The New York Post reported Greene was a member of the Occupy Wall Street movement but the group has denied this.”

Doane then featured a clip of intelligence expert Michell Silber talking about Occupiers:

MITCHELL SILBER (K2 Intelligence Executive Managing Director): The assumption is that the vast majority of the people there were peaceful protesters but there was a more radical fringe element to the group and there was a concern at some point they might turn to violence if they weren’t accomplished their political aims.

OK then, CBS commits a random act of journalism, and reveals that there is some apparent connection with OWS, but there will be no further investigation of that, will there be?
