    You’ve probably seen the black and white police sketch of a man with a mustache, wearing dark aviators and a hoodie, a patch of curly hair peaking out from underneath. That ominous image tormented Americans for years, because the man behind those sunglasses was responsible for a string of terrorist attacks that killed three people and maimed dozens more from 1978 to 1995. You’ve probably also heard about how this man—known only as the Unabomber—sent increasingly sophisticated bombs to unsuspecting victims in the science, technology and airline industries. Some sustained minor injuries and others suffered shrapnel wounds and severe burns,...

    FLORENCE, Colo. -In handwritten letters to hundreds of supporters and curiosity seekers, Unabomber Ted Kaczynski expressed shock over the 9/11 attacks and wrote that he preferred Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic presidential race. Kaczynski also wrote to pen pals from federal prison in Colorado asking for more information about Osama bin Laden and the origins of al Qaeda, and has relied on others to inform him about the rise of the Internet and social media.

    For those interested in examining “terrorist attacks committed on American soil” and hate crimes, the Crime Museum in Washington, D.C., is the place to be starting on Wednesday. In addition to offering information on recent attacks, the museum's "Domestic Terrorism and Hate Crimes" exhibit will display objects from the wrenching incidents. From the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, for example, there will be a runner’s medal and a bib from one of the victims. Letters from the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, will also be on display, as will a Virginia Jihad Network rifle that was confiscated in 2003. The exhibit will also...

    The Harvard Alumni Association has apologized for an entry in the 50th anniversary report of the class of 1962 in which Ted Kaczynski — the domestic terrorist known as the Unabomber, who is serving life in prison for sending deadly mail bombs — said his “awards” included eight life sentences.
  • Boston Marathon Bombs Have Hallmarks Of "Lone Wolf" Devices, Experts Say

    (CNN) -- The devices used in the Boston Marathon attack Monday are typical of the "lone wolf:" the solo terrorist who builds a bomb on his own by following a widely available formula. In this case, the formula seems very similar to one that al Qaeda has recommended to its supporters around the world as both crudely effective and difficult to trace. But it is also a recipe that has been adopted by extreme right-wing individuals in the United States. The threat of the "lone wolf" alarms the intelligence community.

    Shortly after Anders Behring Breivik carried out his one-man killing spree of his fellow countrymen Friday, the media began to speculate about the killer’s possible motivations. The terrorist’s disturbing “manifesto” (much of it borrowed from Unabomber Ted Kaczynski) prescribed a race-based revolution across Europe against what he considered the elite, “multiculturalists” and “enablers of Islamization.” To the New York Times, this seething hatred all apparently sounded familiar: [Breivik's] manifesto, which denounced Norwegian politicians as failing to defend the country from Islamic influence, quoted Robert Spencer, who operates the Jihad Watch Web site, 64 times, and cited other Western writers who...

    Una-bomberens manifest pkt. 6 til 23: One of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of our world is leftism, so a discussion of the psychology of leftism can serve as an introduction to the discussion of the problems of modern society in general. 7. But what is leftism? During the first half of the 20th century leftism could have been practically identified with socialism. Today the movement is fragmented and it is not clear who can properly be called a leftist. When we speak of leftists in this article we have in mind mainly socialists, collectivists, “politically correct” types,...

    FBI wants DNA from Unabomber for Tylenol deaths News Staff Date: Fri. May. 20 2011 8:22 AM ET The FBI won't say why it wants to obtain a DNA sample from Ted Kaczynski, the so-called Unabomber, after his name surfaced in a decades-long investigation into a series of U.S. deaths from tampered Tylenol packages. Kaczynski has been behind bars for more than a decade, after being captured and convicted of a series of mail bomb attacks that killed three Americans and injured 24 others. Those attacks began in the late 1970s and continued until Kaczynski's capture in 1996. Now...

    WASHINGTON, May 18 (UPI) -- The U.S. Marshals Service said personal items belonging to "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski are being auctioned to benefit some of his victims. The service said the General Services Administration is handling the online auction, which runs through June 2, and items being sold include personal documents, typewriters, academic transcripts and "more than 20,000 pages of written documents, including the original handwritten and typewritten versions" of Kaczynski's manifesto, CNN reported Wednesday. Kaczynski, 68, is serving a life sentence in a Colorado prison for killing three people and wounding 23 in a string of bombings from 1978 to...

    Earlier today I heard a news flash that the Unabomber's possessions were being auctioned off and that was the first thing that came to mind. I've since looked at some of the things that're being auctioned, but I didn't see that book among the things listed.(though it seems reasonable that if Gore's book is among the items, the media wouldn't mention it)

    Government auctions Unabomber’s propertyBy Ylan Q. Mui, Published: May 13 There is nothing sinister about the gray hooded sweatshirt anymore, no mystery behind the aviator sunglasses. Once, they were among the hallmarks of Ted Kaczynski, the anarchist Unabomber who killed three people and injured almost two dozen more during a nearly 20-year reign of terror. Now, his old clothes adorn a mannequin in a sterile government office in an online photo tagged Unabomb0001. This is the first of 51 lots of Kaczynski’s personal belongings that the government will auction online next week in what amounts to Uncle Sam’s version of...

    He killed and maimed victims during a decades-long bombing spree, but what keeps Ted Kaczynski up at night in his Colorado prison cell is the fear that federal officials are doing an inadequate job copying reams of his documents in advance of the material’s sale at auction. The convicted Unabomber is distressed at the haste with which he thinks government officials are moving to reproduce tens of thousands of pages of material--much of it handwritten by Kaczynski--seized from the murderer’s Montana cabin. Originals of the documents will be sold off, with the proceeds going to victims of Kaczynski’s bombing campaign....
