ABC News Plans To Blow Up White House
Brian Ross, Rhonda Schwartz, and their undercover ABC news team have purchased 1000 lbs. of ammonium nitrate and have moved it into a storage shed only a few miles from the White House and the U.S. Capitol. They made the purchases, in cash, at farm supply stores in North Carolina and Virginia and were never once asked for any valid ID. Here’s their side of the story.
Isn’t this considered “terrorist activity”? Considering the way Brian Ross has been operating, lately, this seems less and less like “reporting”, and more and more like “becoming” and fabricating the news.
This was all done under the premise of exposing a lack of federal laws restricting the purchase of bomb-making material. What has actually happened is they had purchased the bomb-making material with the intent of storing it as close to the White House as possible.
Let’s try something, here. Let’s replace any referrence to ABC or Brian Ross in this post, with the word “terrorist”. We won’t change the story or the actual people…just switch the names with the term. Even though there are other questions being asked on different topics, it seems to me that they are closer to each other than they realize. Maybe a lot of the recent talk about “Path to 9/11” is just a smoke screen to cover up the fact that the network (remember…replace with the word “terrorists”) are planning to blow something up. Pretty tricky of them to attack their own to create a smoke screen like this.
In the comments on the ABC web site, Larry said:
“Wow! Journalist sure are clever. I’ll bet they could probably ‘drive off’ without paying for gas, ‘shoplift’ without getting caught, ‘skip out’ on a dinner bill at a classy restaurant; or successfully engage in any number of anti-social and deleterious behaviors. Thank God there are a majority of ‘well-intentioned’ everyday folk who don’t seek ‘noteriety by abusing freedom in order to further their own careers and bragging about it in order to shine their egos and achieve self serving personal goals.”
I agree, but this actually goes way beyond “abusing freedom” or being an investigative journalist, and (just like committing any of the other crimes that he mentioned) is just plain breaking the law, but on a much, much larger scale.
