    The public was never in danger as the explosive's were inoperable and controlled by undercover FBI agents

    Five people described as anarchists were arrested Monday in a Cleveland-area park for trying to blow up a bridge, sources tells Fox News.
    The public was never in danger from the explosive devices, which were inoperable and controlled by an undercover FBI employee, according to sources close to the investigation.
    Charges were filed against the defendants Tuesday morning in Cleveland. An FBI press conference is planned for 10 a.m.

    Any word if they are Occupy Wall Street / Cleveland types? They've been trying to make a ruckus about May Day protests...

    There's been no direct connection with OWS at this time other than the shared goals of all anarchists.

    Fortunately, it appears among the 5 of them there was not enough combined intelligence to accomplish the task without getting the FBI involved to actually do the work.

    The FBI seems to be dang good at joining plots to blow things up.

    Conspiracy!

    Luckily, they appear to be too incompetent to build an actual explosive.
