Anyone hear about Soc Sec Building Bombing????

I just stumbled on it. Cannot believe this was not front page news. I did a search in the NYT. Came up with NOTHING. No hits in the NYT search engine. The HuffPo article only has 14 comments, so it was definitely buried there.

front page would have been if this was the act of a white tea partying republican.
oh how the liberal kooksphere were all jazzed up and talking points ready.
sad was they to find the guys name was abdullatif aldosary,

wasn't much of a bomb..wasn't much of a story..
until it came to light it was an iraqi refugee who apparently did it..
happened back on november 30th..all the arizona media had it when it happened..never got picked up nationally until the iraq connection happened..
except for the rightwingnut media going crazy, it still isn't that much of a story..

I have to disagree with you there, orth. Someone sets a bomb off in front of a federal building?? That's HUGE.
How many times do we hear of suspicious packages being placed here and there no where near federal buildings but nothing ever happens?
But a bomb actually explodes and the story is buried?

was it buried?..or was it a case that no one else thought..
it was that big a story outside of arizona?..
i don't pretend to be a network producer..and maybe they should have jumped on it..but they didn't..what all else might have been going on that day?
it was on all the arizona media when it happened..i found it in phoenix, tucson, flagstaff..even yuma..
i'm not ready to paint this as a mainstream media conspiracy to cover it up..could have been just lousy news judgment..
the rightwingnut media sure is, though..

I'm not a wingnut, as I'm sure you know.
I searched the NYT website. It's not mentioned. At all. Nothing. Weird. I was expecting a mention there somewhere, a short 400 word blurb maybe, something. But no.

no, i know you're not..
i can't see why it wasn't picked up elsewhere..i know AP had it..
i just don't see the conspiracy angle..
