An investigation that has "basically come to a dead end" led the FBI to add the first domestic-terror suspect to the bureau's list of Most Wanted Terrorists.

Daniel Andreas San Diego, a 31-year-old animal rights activist, is under indictment for the 2003 bombings of two San Francisco Bay Area companies linked to an animal-testing laboratory.

Gotta throw the people a bone once in a while to make you think you're not biased.

The announcement was made nearly a week after The Washington Times reported on a Homeland Security Department assessment warning that war veterans could be susceptible to recruitment into "right-wing extremism." The report unleashed a firestorm of controversy and led to an apology to veterans from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
I guess the move to add a domestic, left-wing terrorist to this list is Homelands Security's way of making amends to the multitude of people they offended and insulted. Of course there was no mention or warning ever issued pertaining to left-wing extremism in their report.

Well you had the Arkansas State Democatic Head shot to death by a right wing nut last year.

A right wing nut went into a North Carolina Unitarian Church and killed the "liberals" there...leaving a suicide note.

Then you had just a few weeks ago a right wing nut who killed three cops who confinded that the "government was trying to take his guns away"...and posted Glenn Beck videos on racist anti government websites.

I know damn well who the threat is from these days......unstable right wingers.

You can talk about burning up Hummers and vandalism all you want.....We're talking kooks like who killed hundreds in the Oklahoma City bombing.

No comparison.

Not my kind of activism. My understanding is that no human was harmed. Still, probably not the best way to go about alerting people to the cruelty against animals in laboratories. But if you saw what happens to animals in testing laboratories, you might feel compelled to do something about it, too. The real "terrorists" are the monsters perpetrating horrors against defenseless animals. Just fyi: most animal testing has nothing to do with medicine.

There are as many unstable far left-wingers as there are far left-right wingers. However, because the media is so left controlled these days, you rarely hear anything negative to the left.

One is referred to as extremists and the other are radicals. All are unstable and dangerous and I condone the actions of none of them.

Since all we hear about is the actions of the far right extremists these days I would like to remember just a few of the actions of the far left radicals.............

Theodore Kaczynski, aka THE UNABOMER killed three people and injured twenty-three during an eighteen-year period in the 1980s and 1990s. The Unabomber—as Kaczynski is called—sent bombs through the mail to people he considered enemies of the Earth. One of the Unabomber’s victims was Gilbert Murray, president of the California Forestry As- sociation, a timber industry group. Kaczynski believed that Murray and the timber industry were contributing to the destruction of the environment. Another victim, Thomas Mosser, an advertising executive, was falsely accused by the Unabomber of helping Exxon clean up its public image after the disastrous Exxon Valdez oil spill in March 1989. In Kaczynski’s manifesto, he advocates a revolution whose object “will be to overthrow not governments but the economic and technological basis for the present society.”

Bill Ayers / Bernardine Dohrn and the Weather Underground ... there activities are far too many to list but are most noted for the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970.

January 2004: Molotov cocktail used in attack on UCLA researchers...

February 2004: Six masked assailants break into the home of a UC Santa Cruz biologist and assault him and his wife...

August 2004: Firebombing of the homes of two University of California--Santa Cruz biologists conducting animal research....
March 2008: eco-terrorists leave a sign announcing their responsibility for fire-bombing three houses in a Seattle suburb...

The FBI in 2001 named the ELF (Earth Liberation Front) as "one of the most active extremist elements in the United States", and a "terrorist threat.

And the list can go on and on and I haven't even touched on the violent actions of the Labor Unions. For those that think the only threat lays to the far right should read "Far Left of Center" by Harvey E. Kleher. If I am not mistaken you don't even need to buy it because I think Google Books has it online.


Again ..... there are despicable acts carried out by both and people need to realize this.
