According to a NewwithViews.com federal source, residents and those traveling on the targeted bridge were never in any danger from the explosive devices. The explosives that the suspects purchased and attempted to use were inoperable.
According to the criminal complaint, Wright, Baxter, and Hayne are self-described anarchists who formed a small radical group and brainstormed terrorist plots during a period of several months.
One initial plot involved the use of non-lethal smoke grenades for use as a diversion for law enforcement officers in order for the co-conspirators to topple financial institution signs atop high-rise buildings in downtown Cleveland, according to the criminal complaint.
The plot later developed to the utilization of actual improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The defendants conspired to obtain C-4 explosives contained in two IEDs to be placed and remotely detonated, according to the complaint.
The defendants discussed various bridges and physical targets in and around the Cleveland metropolitan area over the course of several months. The final plan called for the Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge to be the target for the at least one of the IEDs. The targeted bridge crosses from Brecksville, Ohio to Sagamore Hills, Ohio over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, according to the complaint.
“The complaint in this case alleges that the defendants took specific and defined actions to further a terrorist plot,” said U.S. Attorney William Dettelbach. “The defendants stand charged based not upon any words or beliefs they might espouse, but based upon their own plans and actions.”
While the elite news media and politicians attempted to suppress the information connecting the would-be bombers with the Occupy Movement — one that includes socialists, Marxists, and anti-American groups — more and more law enforcement officers involved in the case spoke out about the connection between the terrorists and the Occupiers, according to a NewswithViews.com undercover source.
