Obama’s buddy Bill Ayers must be awash in nostalgia by this point.
Two more men have been charged with planning to make explosives to be used during the NATO summit.
But authorities said they are not connected to three men in their 20s who were arrested in a Bridgeport raid earlier this week and charged under the state’s anti-terror statutes with planning to use Molotov cocktails during the summit.
“While the cases that were charged in court today arose from related investigations, the two defendants are not charged with any involvement in the terrorist case from yesterday,” the state’s attorney’s office.
Sebastian Senakiewicz, 24, of the 3600 block of North Odell Avenue, was arrested Thursday afternoon without incident at his home, according to a police report. He was charged Saturday afternoon.
Senakiewicz “had been planning/conspiring with more than two other individuals in the building of explosives, which were to be used/detonated during the NATO summit,” according to police.
According to prosecutors, he told others he was an anarchist member of Black Bloc and had “a carful of explosives” capable of taking out a highway overpass.
On Tuesday, he told others he had explosives hidden in a hollowed-out Harry Potter book at his home. But a search of his Chicago residence did not turn up any explosives, authorities said.
Molly Armour, a National Lawyers Guild attorney representing Senakiewicz, who works as a mechanic, called the accusations “extremely sensationalized charges.”
“He’s a political man being targeted because of his beliefs,” Armour said.
Mark Neiweem, 28, of the 2200 block of West 18th Place on the Lower West Side, was charged with attempted possession of explosive or incendiary devices, prosecutors said. Neiweem “engaged in dialogue with a subject, during which time he provided same subject with a list of ingredients that are used in the construction of an explosive device,” according to a police report.
Neiweem sounds like a budding community organizer.
Nieweem is a member of the Anarchist Black Cross and is active on anarchist message boards, WLS-TV reports.
In April, he gave a presentation called ‘Why This Isn’t Scary: Anarchy, Communism, Socialism and The Black Bloc’ at a protect called Chicago Spring.
Remarkably, CBS News calls these terrorists activists.
If you’re keeping count at home, that’s 10 leftwing terrorists arrested on bomb charges just this month alone between these freaks in Chicago and the mutants in Cleveland. Can’t wait for the next New York Times report on how re-energized and focused the Occupy movement is.
