Bomb Plot Stopped in Oregon

A 19-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Somalia is accused of attempting to blow up a van filled with explosives. The detonation site? A crowded Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon. Mohamed Osman Mohamud had been on the FBI's radar for months. His arrest came after a long undercover operation. Mohamud is due in court Monday.

    Just saw this on CNN. Shame on you guys for not leading in that this plot was thwarted by a tip from the muslim community. In a time where the rift between Christians and Muslims, such info would've been better placed at the top of the story, instead of just a blurb at the end. Poor story framing you guys.

    Why isn't Oregons bomb plott on the christmas lighting in downtown portland, NOT in the news. we watched as the spoiled bombing in New York for weeks, even months. but there isn't anything about Portland, Oregon? really ? Are we not important? We caught the guy right away is that why it's not in the news?
