The Occupiers, authorities tell us, thought they had rigged the span with plastic explosives that would detonate when they punched a code into a cellphone.
The only thing that went up in smoke, though, was their plot. They were working with dummy devices — fitting — sold to them by an FBI informant whom they failed to recognize as the Man.
