|From Cleveland Magazine – By Erick Trickey
Were the five men arrested for trying to blow up a bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley a Cleveland-grown terrorist group, dimwit outsiders lured by an FBI informant or both?
Rain soaked the clothes of the six figures walking through the pitch-black Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Across the river from the scenic railroad’s Brecksville station, where the Towpath Trail forks around a last remnant of the Ohio & Erie Canal, two of the men stopped to act as lookouts. The other four approached one of the giant concrete pillars holding up the 145-foot-tall Route 82 bridge. Its seven arches curved above them, holding up a roadway a fifth of a mile long.
A night vision camera stood guard, waiting.
A Bridge Too Far
