Terror news: Now you see it, now you don't

When it's announced, it's major news in print and on TV. A few days later, you need a magnifying glass and a hearing aid to find the retraction. This is one sentence in the last item in today's News in Brief section of the San Jose Mercury News:
Prosecutors dropped terrorism charges Tuesday against two Michigan men who were arrested after buying large numbers of cell phones, saying they could not prove a terrorism link.
Incidentally, in case you missed it (I did), the case against three other men for the same heinous crime (possession of too many cell phones), a case which including scary claims that they were going to blow up the Mackinac Bridge, is also falling apart, with officials admitting they have no evidence of any ties to terrorism.
