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...

It's a kinder gentler Al Qaeda.

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...

Tough spot, you probably think that 99% chance it’s a hoax, but still, you can’t take that chance.

Wait, I predict they will eventually say that some mean Republican guy did this deliberately to foster animosity towards those peace-loving Muslim folks. This is UTA, after all.

1. AQ does not give warnings, which immediately makes this scream hoax.

2. Is it Mid-Term or Finals week?

At least they had the courage to say "middle eastern accent" and "Al Qaeda".

Aside from the fact that genuine terrorists wouldn’t give any warning, it’s pretty likely that some local wannabe thought, “Hey, with all the stuff going on around the world, maybe I can stir up some crap here.”

UT Austin.

They have been twitchy ever since the tower incident. Sudden evacuation of the Austin campus is going to be a traffic nightmare. People should just walk out; the roads will jam.

So far they have just reported that the evacuation is orderly and there are lots of law enforcement on site.

I am confident this is a hoax. Al Quaeda doesn’t call in a threat so that the victims can scramble for safety. Al Quaeda would have let the bomb(s) go off.
