HOUGHTON -- Federal and state law enforcement officials remained on the Michigan Tech University campus late Monday after bombs found at two university buildings were disarmed. Radical environmentalists are considered possible suspects, a county official said.
The bombs, described by university spokesmen as the "real thing," were discovered early Monday morning by campus public safety officers at the U.J. Noblet Forestry Building and the U.S. Forest Service Engineering Laboratory.

I hope they are not the ONLY possible suspects being considered. If memory serves correct, weren't there some post-911 connections to Michigan?
ELF = Terrorist
And you know what the US thinks about terrorism. Eradicate them!
Don't they mean "Left-wing extremists"?
The Bader-Meinhof terror group justified their attacks on the US because of the Vietnam war violating international law. What they are doing is replicating this now, justifying terrorism.
Since the left wing extremist mediots tried to blame evil white male conservatives for the Anthrax, I have been posting, the real suspects should be ALF, ELF, PETA and the radical members of Earth First!
The protected home grown terrorists have had a free rein since Jake Reno took its oath to screw and destroy America in 1993. They hate 99.9% of Americans and would love to see us disappear to make their druid world cleaner for their worship of trees, critters, water and the air!
My initial reaction as well.
Political extremism is not an ambidextrous quality, as percieved by the "lame-stream" media. It only can exist right of center.
Want to start a pool? Who will be first? ABC, FOX, CNN, CBS, NBC, or New York Times?
On the other hand, they seem to be in favor of public education, oddly enough...
Mainstream Media - America's #1 domestic enemy.
Following Rueters lead on not labelling 9/11 hijackers as terrorists, but rather those engaging in a "Holy war", they will see fit to describe the perps of this incident as "Ideological Warriors".
Impossible. As the media has joyfully pointed out during the recent anthrax 'scare', "if it ain't foreign terrorists, it's gotta be them domestic right-wing militia extremists".

I hope that we get to following the money from the super rich Arabs who hate America/Americans and funding of various enviral organizations. These enviral organizations have worked hand in hand with the Opecker states to make us more dependent on Opecker oil! I am sure that tons of money has flowed into these envirals coffers since 1973, the first of the phoney oil shortages!
Other end of the state. MTU is waaaaay up north on the Keeweenau Peninsula. (That's the part of the UP which dangles out into Lake Superior like a barb on a fishhook.) The Middle Eastern enclave is in Dearborn, immediately to the west-southwest of Detroit.
God alone knows why anyone would want to bomb MTU. There is nothing there but snow and ice.
I've always said the anthrax was radical left wing anti-capitalist taking advantage of Pig Ladins hit and run.
It's always been my opinion.
Hope they catch these crazy left wing zealots.
"Mother earth" wouldn't be there to defend them!
When asking who would benifet most from the attacks, the answer is always the left wing terrorist groups , politicians, and their other socialist cronies.
I have to say, da 'Tech is one of the most conservative public campuses in the country. In the 60's, protests actually broke out in favor of the Vietnam War. Rumor has it that MTU was the birthplace of Agent Orange...rumor backed up by the excellent Forestry & Chemistry departments, plus warm warm ties with Dow Chemical...
Wadsworth Hall even has a students' weapon locker! So believe me, the @$$#0L3$ that messed with my alma mater have messed with the wrong school!
(BTW, there is more than ice and snow to the Keewenaw Penninsula - like incredible pristine beauty....)
bin Laden Muslims are violently anti-abortion. It's one reason they condem the West.
So, nice try to blame Conservatives but you lose.
'Domestic' anthrax was probably stolen by foreign students from University and Government labs who use these students as a cheap labor pool. They are the ones with the most probable access and the most likely motivation.
Domestic Terrorists Must be Stopped
Catherine Ives was a researcher at Michigan State University in 1999, working on developing disease-resistant crops that could help alleviate starvation in Third World countries. Then, the facility in which she worked was torched, destroying Ives' work.
A group called the Earth Liberation Front claimed responsibility for the fire. Upset with the research because of its association with genetically engineered crops, ELF members shut down Ives' operation through an act of terrorism.
While the resolve of Americans to combat terrorism is currently at a peak, the focus remains on Islamic extremists. Domestic terrorists such as the ELF and the Animal Liberation Front continue to operate with little public notice of their acts of terror.
Richard Berman, executive director of an organization representing restaurant and tavern owners, wrote last week in a USA Today opinion piece that homegrown terrorism has not let up since the awful events of Sept. 11. Rather than admit that their form of terrorism is every bit as odious as that of the Mideast radicals, the environmental and animal rights groups self- righteously cling to the "correctness" of their cause.
"In this age of insanity, you may be branded a terrorist," says an Animal Liberation Front Web page, "but you will one day be remembered as a selfless warrior who dared to fight for what is right." The words are directed at ALF associates who bomb or burn down research labs, sometimes killing animals in order to "save" them.
If those same words were distributed by Osama bin Laden, righteous indignation would be the reaction. Yet these domestic terrorists carry on with little scrutiny.
"The growing wave of domestic terrorism by animal-rights, anti-corporate and anti-biotech extremists has gone beyond vandalism," Berman wrote. "Property has been destroyed and lives have been put at risk. And Americans are the perpetrators."
The FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies have their hands full now, giving the domestic terrorists a virtual field day for their lunatic fringe activities. ALF claims to have set fire to a primate research facility just nine days after planes hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Periodic torchings or bombings of research facilities have been commonplace. The ALF or ELF has claimed responsibility for firebombings at meat companies and a feed mill. The fire at Michigan State University caused about $1 million in damages, Berman wrote.
Because these domestic terrorists have so far managed to avoid killing people, their activities have been largely ignored by the general public. But terrorism is terrorism, and any war on terrorism must include these twisted and unjustifiable attacks.
While not directly engaged in terrorism, groups such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are nevertheless linked to terrorist attacks. For example, in 1992 ALF member Rodney Coronado firebombed a Michigan research facility, a crime he later admitted committing. PETA contributed $42,500 to Coronado's legal defense in 1995 while spending less than $5,000 for animal shelters that year.
Former FBI Director Louis Freeh was outspoken in his contempt for domestic terrorism, but most Americans remain unaware that animal-rights and environmentalist radicals are loose in this society. Similarities between the homegrown terrorists and the men who hijacked four planes on Sept. 11 can be found in their rhetoric and their unfailing belief that no act is too extreme if the cause is "right."
Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are "acceptable crimes" in the pursuit of a cause, PETA co-founder Alex Pacheco once said. With such an endorsement of terrorism, it's not out of line to suggest that PETA itself encourages acts of violence.
In an opinion piece that appeared in The Oklahoman on Oct. 24, Nick Nichols, chairman of a crisis management firm in Washington, D.C., said Americans too often tolerate violence committed by environmental and animal rights terrorists as "stunts" or "pranks."
"This invites acts of greater violence," Nichols wrote. "Instead, we need to crack down with aggressive prosecution of domestic terrorism against property to protect us from more serious domestic terrorism against our people."
To paraphrase President Bush after the Sept. 11 attacks, you are either in the battle against terrorism or you are abetting it. Extremist animal and environmental activists have made it clear which side they're on.
send them to afghanistan to 'pick daisy's'!!!
Has anyone considered that maybe a mining engineering student lost some of his homework on the way back from the Library?
