Not So Great Britain

ABC News Accused Of Aiding Terrorists | July 6, 2007

ABC News has been accused of aiding potential terrorists after a news article that discussed why the attempted terror attacks on the UK were unsuccessful led to many angry readers claiming the the company was educating future car bombers on how to better hone their techniques.

In a story entitled, Exclusive: U.K. Terror Plot — Why the Bombs Failed, writers Richard Esposito and Jim Sciutto attempt to explain why the car bombs discovered in two Mercedes in London last week failed to ignite, citing a “medical syringe used as part of the firing mechanism,” that “caused a malfunction.”

This provoked dozens of furious responses from those who commented on the article who accused ABC of directly educating terrorists on how to perfect the construction of a car bomb for the next attack.
