American News Media Blacks Out Story of Italian Terror Arrests

Its been several days since this story broke throughout Europe. Headlines in every major paper.

It seems the Italians captures a terrorist cell planning major attacks in the United States.

Why, you may ask, has the American media not covered this story?

Perhaps this phrase in the story has something to do with it:

Italian authorities recently announced that they had used wiretaps to uncover the conspiracy to conduct a series of major attacks inside the U.S.
The story is scary in its implications.

On the other hand, it makes President Bush's defense of his Homeland Security policy look pretty convincing.

It also makes the New York Times and its expose on the President's wiretapping look rather pathetic.

You can read the whole story of what the Italians discovered in many different news sources. I'll follow Powerline's lead and refer you to the Abyssinian International News Agency.
