Greenwich Village couple busted with cache of weapons, bombmaking explosives: sources
New York Post ^

Posted on 12/31/2012 6:48:35 AM PST by bryan999

The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend — a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist — have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment.

Morgan Gliedman — who is nine-months pregnant — and her baby daddy, Aaron Greene, 31, also had instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’’ sources told The Post yesterday.

People who know Greene say his political views are “extreme,” the sources said.

Other than the white powder and the possible credit card fraud, is any of that illegal?

Sounds like offsprings from the Weather Underground of the 60s. They blew up a townhouse with most of them in it, accidently, around 69 or 70. No loss.

I am certainly no sympathizer with them but a shotgun, ammo, high cap magazines, and a flare gun are not illegal. Even the books, if unused, are not illegal. Scary to think of how stories can be dramatized Of course the actual bomb powder is really illegal, if they are not licensed.

Yes, too bad all of the Weathermen/women weren’t atomized along with their martyred cohorts. Aren’t they precious? And their favorite trained monkey now occupies the WH for another four years. Pathetic. Wake up America, it’s getting way too late.

Even if they were licensed to mfg explosives, their improper storage would be illegal.

They call a flare gun and a 12 gauge shotgun a “cache of weapons”?

They’d have a cow if they ever got into some FReepers’ homes.

I was working over in Newark when that happened....partied for two days afterward. The absolute best result is they took no innocent people with them on their blast to hell.

Too bad the two bimbos who survived were never executed.

This is the New York media we are talking about.

I remember a similar story (no explosives or books) about 25 years ago where they breathlessly reported the man had multiple sniper rifles that could be used from his high-floor city apartment.

They were two scoped hunting rifles, a Marlin lever action and a Remington 700.

"Other than the white powder and the possible credit card fraud, is any of that illegal?"

A detective discovered a plastic container with seven grams of a white chemical powder called HMTD, which is so powerful, cops evacuated several nearby buildings.

Police also found a flare launcher, which is a commercial replica of a grenade launcher; a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun; ammo; and nine high-capacity rifle magazines, the sources said.

Cops also allegedly uncovered papers about creating homemade booby traps, improvised submachine guns, and various handwritten notebooks containing chemical formulas.

The Mossberg is probably illegal in NYC unless she has a permit. I think that the magazines (sans rifle) are probably illegal, too. (Although under the David Gregory "elite liberal" exemption, maybe not.)

If the question is, "Was there much of a chance that she might actually do some harm with this stuff?", I'd guess she and her Harvard hubby were being fashionably Radical Chic and probably not.

This is absolutely a story that could have been ripped out of the NY Post in 1968 with absolutely no difference. The spoiled, alienated children of the well-to-do building bombs in a Greenwich Village townhouse.

Scary how history sometimes repeats itself down to the very last detail.

“Extreme” without elucidation is an attempt to make readers think “right wing militia gun nuts” but given the identities of the individuals in question it surely refers to Leftist orientation.

Little doubt that they circulate in rarefied society among the artistic and entertainment elite and get invited to the very best parties in Greenwich Village! I wouldn't be surprised if they know many of the better known Manhattan politicians socially!

Is anyone willing to take bets that the feds didn't provide this "white powder" to them? I might be behind the times, but I don't know of any explosive that can take down a building with an undirected charge from just 7 grams of it.

Safe bet. If I were younger, I'd also bet they might have a future in "legitimate" politics in 30 or 40 years, just like Ayres, Dohrn, and a host of Obama appointees.

Yeah, I’ll take that bet. Loser pays $5 to FR in the name of the winner (thats all i can afford; I am out of work).

Get with the program - the Feds only “entrap” innocent, low-IQ, “easily led” muslims who are on anti-depressants....

It probably won't come out until trial, like it did with the first WTC bombing, where the FBI admitted in open court that they provided the bomb.

Their views are “extreme”, but there is no hint of what they may be.

If they had anything to do with something that wasn’t liberal, then I think that the article would be telling us so in the headline.

This is another soviet style article, where we all figure out what the story is, by what ISN’T in it.

Excuse me?

The FBI had an informant WHO MAY OR MAY NOT have been in touch with the bombers. (They also looked at and ignored boxes of notes and drawings about blowing up the WTC before the fact when they searched El Sayyid Nosair’s rooms after he was arrested for killing Rabbi Kahane).

But if you listen to the gibberish English of the FBI’s informant, he MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TOLD THEM AHEAD OF TIME ABOUT THE PLOT, and neither he nor “the FBI admitted in open court that they provided the bomb” to the jihadi scum -sucking sons of pig shit.

Yeah, if I recall correctly they went up and took the entire police accademy class down there to do the sifting of the debris. I think that was the Chief of Dectectives call, Seedman who solved many famous cases in his career.
