Yeah, if it was a shooter they would lock down everyone in classrooms.

The University of Texas is evacuating all of its buildings due to threats on campus.

“Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible,” read a message posted at 9:53 a.m. on the campus’ emergency alert website. “More information to come.”

UT Director of Communications Rhonda Weldon said the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a male with a middle eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus.

He said he was with Al Qaeda and that these bombs would go off in 90 minutes.

President Williams Powers has been notified, and officials are now evacuating all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution.

“Multiple bomb threats to multiple buildings”. University of TX? Immediately makes me think some LGBTs are taking revenge for the Regnerus ruling, but that may be a stretch. Time will tell...

Can’t be with AQ - they would want the mass casualties.

He said he was with Al Qaeda and these bombs would go off in 90 minutes.

It's a kinder gentler Al Qaeda.

San Antonio radio station reports a phoned in bomb threat from a Middle Eastern sounding man who said every building on the UT campus has a bomb in it.

There is a considerable Arab/Muslim population because of the fact this school teaches Petroleum Engineering, etc.

Also, a nice place for rich Arabs to go to school...
