Man convicted in terror plot

I wonder why CNN, Fox and ABC news aren't blanket-to-blanket coverage with this terror plot:

Robert F. Weiler, Jr., age 25, of Forestville, Maryland pleaded guilty today to possessing a pipe bomb (an unregistered destructive device), being a felon in possession of a firearm and attempting to destroy or damage an abortion clinic located on Greenbelt Road in Greenbelt, Maryland, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein stated, "Mr. Weiler's misguided plan to murder doctors and bomb an abortion clinic could have resulted in deaths or serious injuries. Outstanding investigative work by ATF, the Maryland State Police and the Prince George's County Police prevented a tragedy."

ATF Special Agent in Charge Gregory K. Gant said, "The teamwork displayed throughout the investigation was outstanding. The work of the ATF and other law enforcement agencies does not wait until after a horrific event takes place. Through sound investigative work and diligence, agents and officers prevented what would have been a tragedy had Mr. Weiler not been brought to justice. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those who made the tough decision to bring their concerns about Mr. Weiler to the attention of law enforcement."

The next day, Weiler advised agents that he was going to use the pipe bomb to blow up an abortion clinic located in Greenbelt, Maryland and that he was going to use the gun to shoot doctors who provided abortions. ATF agents and Prince George’s County Police officers discovered the pipe bomb - consisting of a 1" diameter galvanized pipe, end caps, a length of pyrotechnic fuse and black powder - in a first floor closet at the Riverdale home where it had been hidden by Weiler.


If he'd been a Muslim plotting an attack with the same weapons, I have the feeling aWol himself would have been trumpeting the conviction as a victory on the "war" on terrah.

This is the first I have heard of this. Thank you for the info. If the guy had bought 100 cell phones he would have made the 24/7 news for sure.
If this guy had been planning to attack a school, a post office, a church, it would have been everywhere.
