Foiled Attack Suppressed by MSM?

According to mostly right-wing sources, the Italians have foiled a terrorist attack against the US. And the world media is apparently reporting it but the US media is boycotting the story! The right-wing explanation is that the story will prevent the impeachment of George W Bush on the NSA-wiretapping issue. Sounds very strange...

According to Daniel Pipes article, the arrest was back in November. The terrorist group has a pretentious name, the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat. Why not.

An attack that has been prevented, with no convictions and apparently no explosives or weapons found, might just not be big news. But then why was it big news outside the US? Or was it? (adnkronos article). This Italian article emphasizes that the Italians only have wiretaps, nothing else. That may be key. In the US the crime would probably be one of "Conspiracy".
