ABC, CBS Bury NY Post Bombshell on Suspected Terrorist Caught at the Border

Pub­lished Sun­day online and on the front page of Monday’s print edi­tion, our friend Jen­nie Taer at the New York Post dropped a bomb­shell that an ille­gal immi­grant recent­ly detained at the bor­der told Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion offi­cials only is he a mem­ber of the Lebanon-based, Iran­ian-linked Islam­ic ter­ror­ist group Hezbol­lah, but he want­ed to trav­el New York to car­ry out a ter­ror attack with a bomb.
Not sur­pris­ing­ly, none of this was men­tioned on Sun­day night or Mon­day morn­ing by the major broad­cast net­works of ABC, CBS, and NBC on their flag­ship morn­ing or evening news shows.

The Post’s Taer explained that the 22-year-old named Basel Bas­sel Ebba­di “was caught by the US Bor­der Patrol on March 9 near El Paso, Texas” and “[w]hile in cus­tody, he was asked what he was doing in the US, to which he replied, ‘I’m going to try to make a bomb,’ accord­ing to a Bor­der Patrol doc­u­ment exclu­sive­ly obtained by The Post.”
