As far as either of us can remember Robert and I never were in the same room at the same time. In his book he describes his life in Mendocino in the cannabis culture. I lived in the southern part of Humboldt County near Whitethorn. I could get to Mendocino County just north of the Sinkyone Wilderness in less than twenty minutes but that was still hours away from Ukiah where Robert hung out at the Mendocino Environmental Center. We had two views of the same events from very different circumstances yet our theories coincide at many points. His work is heavily researched taking journeys into a similar darkness. He has material in the Unabomber sections though he might never have thought of the Unabomber as a lone actor.
The Following was taken from a late draft of Robert McLaughlin’s Death Squads with Impuity [http://www.amazon.com/Death-Squads-Impunity-Public-Executions/dp/1511672277]
THE FBI/TIMBER INDUSTRY CONSPIRCY
“If the troubles from environmentalists cannot be solved in the jury box or at the ballot box perhaps the cartridge box should be used.” James Watt, former Secretary of the Interior, a premillennial fundamentalist
An any Investigator knows when they identify a string of crimes they suspect were committed by the same person (S) or group; they look for the earliest crime where the perpetrator (s) may have made mistakes that will help identify him/them and their probable location. And just like we did in intelligence, they stick a pin in the map with a small flag with the #1 on it, as the first “incident,” and of much importance is the “time”, the “day” and “geographic details” that determine reality. So, what I’m saying is the Old Santa Rosa Naval Airfield firebombing/attempted murder is the first “incident” committed by this suspected formation, whose ambition of conducting a “lethal raid” (murder rap, a ’Fit-Up’” of Sweeney/Bari) as wannabe “covert-operations specialists” the “would-be” killer’s fell far short of their plan because of their poor execution.
EXECUTIVE ACTION—-“Dr.” John Phillip Nichols (a radical religious right fundamentalist) and Robert Booth Nichols were both Ex-CIA Operatives working the CIA Contra weapons connection and I suspect on the side they were making wholesale illegal, light machine gun sales as that was the weapon they were selling to the Contras. Also, I suspect Lew Dunn was “Dr.” J. P. Nichols right-hand man in those early 1980’s illegal, automatic weapon sales. And Robin L. Dunn, as Lew Dunn’s 24-year-old son who followed his father to Indio, Ca. was the high-energy gofer/weapons distributer who changed addresses frequently because he was on the road so much making sales and deliveries through the same Freedom/Radical Religious Right (RRR) and nationwide Octopus network.
Then unexpectedly, “Dr.” J. P. Nichols went to prison in 1985 and a year later Lew Dunn rents a house in Santa Marie (first time he’s on record), CA. J.P. Nichols gets out of prison 1987 and can’t work for the Cabazon Indians anymore and somehow (weapons sales connection) through the “Octopus” or “Freedom” networks, lands the Timber Industry Covert Intelligence/Planner job.
The first thing “Dr.” JPN does is call his old, right-hand-man, Lew Dunn, who is also broke and in debt to the IRS (there’s no work record) and Dunn joins the operation as assistant planner/driver as J. P. Nichols can no longer drive due to diabetes. Dunn tows a travel-trailer to an RV park in Lakeport, Lake County in Northern, CA. (Close to Ukiah, CA.) and son Robin L Dunn follows him there.
When “Dr.” John P. Nichols gets an order to do something against environmentalists he goes through the Freedom network and Santa Rosa was his only contact so he rehires Ted J. Kaczynski and (I suspect) Kaczynski’s West Santa Rosa buddy.
Remember, in 1987 Kaczynski ended his bombing campaign for the next six years. Three months later the first installment of the Black Propaganda campaign against environmentalists begins with the suspected log deck, log-spiking with a single spike that severely injured mill worker George Alexander on May 9th, 1987 at the Louisiana –Pacific Cloverdale Saw Mill just up and off Route 101 from Santa Rosa. That action made Harry Merlo CEO of L-P very happy as Merlo punished environmentalists with verbal attacks to the press about the Cloverdale log spiking for the next three years.
Then “Dr.” John P. N. hires probably on Ron Arnold’s advice, Arnold of the Wise-Use anti-environmental coalition. (Arnold was connected to the ‘Militias.” according to David Helvarg, 5/22/95 The Nation) and the Moonies i.e. “The Octopus” and I “know” was the “intellectual author” of the “selective killings” idea and the “Death Squad Leader” and “washed cash bundler” thus Dr. J. P. Nichol’s boss whose recommendation of the “Freedom” networks, Oregon electronic surveillance expert, ex-Special Forces Bob Taylor, a bible literalist who brings in ex-Special Forces demolitions/operations expert Randy Weaver, also Christian Identity/Aryan Nation follower and also a bible literalist, who I strongly believe gave Kaczynski explosives training in exchange for money which then enabled Ted to plant 4 maybe 5 powerful bombs in 1985.
Then at the end of 1988, John Campbell of Campbell Logging, Covelo, CA, the major local executive involved in the anti-environmentalist’s operations gives up hiring out-of-state workers because he’s no longer allotted 8 million board feet from the Mendocino National Forest. So, the timber worker L-P/Campbell [bunk] house becomes available for the anti-environmental planning operations in 1989. Dr. Nichols, Lew Dunn and Randy Weaver start using it while running intelligence gathering crews out of Willits for electronic surveillance of Judi Bari in Redwood Valley and Darryl Cherney home in Humboldt county. They also ran Lakeport/Santa Rosa crews covering MEC in Ukiah. The L-P Covelo [bunk] house was perfect or so they thought; they were white and the white cops notice only Indians.
Of course, with the announcement of the Forest Forever Initiative and Redwood Summer the covert and overt planning against environmentalists was intensified and coordinated which included the FBI who were the “virtual” if silent partners of their clients, the Timber Industry security executives. Then from early March 1990 on, the Extraction Industries and Timber companies funded covert/overt anti-environmentalist operations reached critical mass with false press releases, dirty tricks and multiple death threats against Judi Bari, Darryl Cherney and Greg King all of which fell on deaf ears and see-no-evil eyes of the combined law enforcement establishment.
Also in early March 1990 Bob Albonico, a sometimes timber faller, (turned suspected Oregon logging industry forest fire- starter so they would receive ” salvage Logging” contracts) receives word from the “Ex-Special Forces officers, ex-explosives experts from Oregon” that he was picked for the operation which he was aware was ongoing (and influenced by John Campbell) and told he would make a lot of money, but because of “Need to Know” (covert operational security rules) Albonico was in the dark about what it is he has been picked to blow up. All he knew was “the money’s good” but because he’s in dire financial straits the waiting was driving him nuts. Which caused him to “spill the beans” to unsuspecting me, but I thought he was just crazy. I made the major mistake of my life by not believing Albonico, but “old man with stinger missiles for sale” was just too much for me to believe.
I suspect Albonico was given something to do when he and the suspected Kaczynski and his suspected West Santa Rosa buddy, cobble-together from the back of Albonico’s pickup truck, one of his much-dented and faded paint one -gallon gas cans and gas and oil to fill it. They fashioned a make shift pipe bomb and a (unbeliveble) sign “L-P SCREWS WORKERS” and on May 9, 1990, the third anniversary of the George Alexander L-P Cloverdale mill spiked-log incident but the bomb didn’t explode. (This was third “incident” in Kaczynski’s history that happened on the anniversary of an earlier “incident.”) Ted J. Kaczynski, the only premier, small-bomb-builder in the operation under the supervision of his suspected pre-1985 explosive formula teacher, Randy Weaver. Kaczynski builds the anti-personal pipe bomb, the only pipe-bomb used as a “Tilt-fuse” car bomb in U.S. and world history See: Wikipedia and Global Terrorism Database.
They drop the make-shift bomb off at the same L-P Mill, but it only partially burns and it didn’t matter because it was planted to alert the compromised FBI and local law enforcement to the fact the Judi Bari of Earth First! was involved with primitive bombs.
All militarized (covert) “political police” like the FBI Counterterrorism Units and CIA Counter Intelligence/Counter terrorism Units use the same tool box and some of those tools are lies, deceptions and illusions. The timber industry covert planners knew the FBI had accepted every piece of “bullshit” evidence from right-wingers starting with the Old Santa Rosa Naval Airfield firebombing/attempted murder in 1980 followed by the George Alexander spike-log incident in 1987 and three years to the day on May 9, 1990, the L-P Cloverdale Mill bomb.
Impromptu Stage Management—–As all FBI or CIA anti-terrorism operations are “Stage–Managed” (even the New York Times uses “Staged-managed” to describe CIA operations), there are stringent rules under the “Staged-managed” concept:
Rule #1: An agent must know “everything” the total reality of the situation in which he’s involved so he can “Stage-manage” his “Performance” so to affect the wanted change for his client. Yes, that’s what they call it “A Performance” which in this case is “the masking of reality with an illusion.” *
*To create an effective illusion, the spy [FBI Agent] . . .employs similar craft and stage management techniques, plausible reasons are substituted for reality to conceal the true purposes, and spectators [other FBI Agents and Oakland police] attention is culled and diverted . . . For spy to be successful, execution must be carefully planned, exhaustively practiced, and skillfully performed. The Official C. I. A. Manual of trickery and Deception (Melton, Wallace p.20)
In this case FBI Agent Frank Doyle and his FBI higher-ups undoubtedly wanted the outcome to be in favor of his “virtual “partner’s the Timber Industry.
Rule #2: Get everyone on the same page which Doyle started with his April 26th and 27th Bomb School on Louisiana-Pacific clear-cut land near Arcata, CA where he blew up three cars with pipe bombs, two of which were “placed” inside the cars, and where Frank Wittington, chief of L-P Security may have flown down to confer with Doyle. Wittington, head of security for L-P was of course responsible for the Campbell/L-P owned, two-story, white [bunk] house on Mill Street in Covelo that the operational/planners used as a base of operations. The L-P workers boarding (white) house that 195 former workers knew was being used by strange men from 1989 to 1991.
Rule #3: Maximize the news coverage after gaining control of the situation even if the eventual outcome will be the reverse of your illusion, the damage inflicted will be irreversible.
Well, of course FBI (SA) Frank Doyle the “Performer” couldn’t do it all himself, he needed an assistant: “The assistant either by speech or action ‘sets the stage’ for the performance.” (Melton, Wallace p.194)
Doyle’s assistant in this case is “Puppet-Master” Dr. John Phillip Nichols with script in hand who has been waiting patiently while his surveillance teams and electronic surveillance specialists have been monitoring Judi Bari and finding out she was headed to Oakland, set the entire operation in motion. Oakland stands the best chance of the FBI arriving and commanding the situation which was Nichol’s first requirement for the operation to go forward.
The two chase teams (a good guess would be the two ‘old pro’s” who took my photo on Anthony Peak and Kaczynski and his elusive driving partner were taking turns following Judi Bari to the Bay area. With Bob Albonico, the suspected, ”bomb placer” (suspected among other reasons because of the large amount of traceable cash $32,750 he spent the day following the Bari bombing) being driven by undoubtedly, Robin L Dunn bring up the rear of the convoy. As soon as Bari settled in for the night. With a key obtained from a crooked locksmith, Albonico had no trouble placing the bomb under Bari seat where it couldn’t easily be seen and switching the switch to the on position, after which he was picked up.
Someone placed in the law enforcement network informs the FBI that Bari and Cheney are headed to “Seeds of Peace” in Oakland. At 11:55 AM as the car approached 34th Street near Oakland High School, a bomb—eleven inches of galvanized pipe stuffed with Explosive 3:1 potassium chlorate, aluminum powder, three sizes of finished nails taped on the outside — exploded directly under the driver’s seat.
The force of the explosion left burn marks on the surface of Park Boulevard, twisted the Subaru’s entire front end, buckled its roof, and blew out the windshield. Fragments of the driver’s seat and side window were sprayed all over the street. Rescuers had to employ “jaws of life” and cut a door stanchion to remove Judi Bari from the car. The first to arrive was T. J. Roumph, a member of the Alameda County bomb squad. He thought the device was on the left rear floorboard and would have been visible. (Anderson Valley Advertiser)
At 12:10, Special Agent Tim Mc Kinley of the FBI and Special Agent James Flanigan of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives got to the scene shortly after Brewer and Skipp-Sevier. When Flannigan arrived, Doyle and the FBI bomb people had not yet arrived, so he had the most bomb-case seniority of anyone there.
“Now a description of the performer, he must be natural and at ease, he must know in such complete detail what he is to do and how he is to do it that he is completely assured and so has full confidence in himself.” (Melton, Wallace p.90)
Well without a doubt, Special Agent Tim Mc Kinley, the first FBI Agent on the scene was following Bari’s car when it exploded and of course it also stands to reason as a smart street agent knows he can’t admit that he was following Bari, he comes up with an excuse that he was so close to the bombing scene because he was on his way to investigate the Oakland “Hell’s Angles.”
Well, FBI agents may run an errand alone (like following the non-violent Bari) but it’s historical fact, FBI Agents work in pairs when (especially) investigating, a “known” armed, violent motorcycle gang. Thus undoubtedly, Mc Kinley became the first performer in what is known as “A Performance.”
But wait! FBI agent Mc Kinley in his later report said he just happened to have been, “driving through Oakland on (his) lunch hour, looking for an apron for (his) child to use in a school play, when (he) heard on the radio (that) this explosion had taken place, and (he) went over to see what was going on.”
“that a radio broadcast would have been made that soon describing the scene in enough detail for Mc Kinley to have known exactly where to go that quickly is highly suspect in of itself. His story, about searching for the apron is equally dubious.” “Who Bombed Judi Bari,” Judi Bari interviewed by Beth Bosk, New Settler Interview, issue #89, January 1995.
Mc Kinley’s report is inconsistent with what the other FBI agents told the Oakland Police when they finally appeared fifteen minutes later. They reportedly told the local law enforcement (when they finally arrived) that they had received a tip from a woman, ”a secret informant, a woman close to the leaders Earth First!” (later identified as Linda Hall) [Sweeney, Mike, www.colmanhoax.info, in reference to Colman, op. cit page 172]
[that] “some heavies from up north” were headed to Santa Cruz for some sort of “action.” While this statement may have been true, if accurate, there was nothing in it that specifically mentioned a bomb or violence, and yet the Oakland Police accepted this description as if it explained the situation at hand. David Harris, The Last Stand: page 327
Judi Bari elaborated on the series of events years later (after deposing several of the officers and agents involved in the arrest): “Normally, a car -bombing in Oakland would fall under the jurisdiction of the (BATF), not the FBI. So, it was uncanny how fast the FBI arrived on the scene when the bomb went off in my car. The bomb exploded at 11:55 AM. According to his written log, Oakland Police Sgt.Sitterud, one of the first responding officers, got there at 12:20. Sitterud has testified that, by the time he got there, some FBI agents were already there. In addition, Oakland Police Sgt. Paniagua, who was assigned to the hospital where Darryl and I were taken, stated that there were 4 or 5 FBI agents there as well.
“At the scene, a discussion was held between the Oakland Police, the FBI, and the lone ATF agent who had shown up, to decide who would take the case. The discussion, according to Oakland Lt. Sims, was over whether Earth First! was listed on the FBI’s official list of domestic terrorist groups. If EF! was not a terrorist group, or if Darryl and I were not the bombers, the case should have gone to ATF. These days, the FBI claims that they did not and do not consider EF! A terrorist group, and they had never heard of Darryl and me before the bombing. Yet the Oakland Police have testified that the FBI briefed them on me and Darryl, and EF! As soon as they arrived on the scene, before they even looked at the car. ‘They said that ” these were the type of people who would be involved in transporting explosives,” testified Sgt. Sitterud. ‘They said that these people, in fact, qualified as terrorists.’ Ten minutes after he arrived on the scene, based on information he got from the FBI, Sgt. Sitterud made an entry in his police log describing Darryl and me as ‘apparent radical activist with recent arrest for illegal demonstration on Golden Gate Bridge,’ and as ‘Earth First! leaders suspected of the Santa Cruz power pole sabotage, linked with federal case of attempted destruction of nuclear power plant lines in Arizona.” “FBI Bomb School and Other Atrocities,” by Judi Bari, Anderson Valley Advertiser October 19, 1994.
[ATF] Flannigan said that he was the first officer to speculate that the bomb had been behind the seat. “I told [the OPD] that based on what I saw at the time, it would have been reasonable to assume that they knew the device was there.” He said that his opinion was based primarily on the damage done to a guitar case that had been sitting behind Bari in the car.” Anderson Valley Advertiser Hank Sims
As 18 agents and policeman accumulated around the wreckage, the Terrorist Squad had to work out the details of jurisdiction, which it did immediately. An agent from Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (was there) and a specific issue was whether Earth First! was on the FBI’s official list of domestic terrorist groups and if the case was a presumed bomb transport. If Earth First! wasn’t, then Darryl Cherney and Judi Bari were probably not the bombers and then the case belonged to the ATF&E, Sam Harris. (David Harris.) Jurisdiction went to the FBI. (As it would happen the best (in the U.S.) and most experienced ATF&E bomb expert John Sullivan was in Washington D.C. on that day. According to www.judibari.org ).
Mc Kinley decided to stick around and help secure the scene of the crime. He was in contact with his superior in Oakland, who gave him a bit of information which he passed on to the OPD officers at the site:
“An informant had said that some people associated with Earth First! we’re going to be traveling to Santa Cruz for something Big.” he said. This was the so-called “heavy hitters” tip, which previous FBI agents said was only known to SA Phil Sena, who had received the tip, and his supervisor SA John Riekes.
(Entering the scene is FBI’s “Point Man” Agent Frank Doyle, leader of #13 Terrorist Bomb Squad. His job is more than supervising bomb technicians as he was without a doubt analyzing and anticipating future bombings from terrorist groups even though there had been none in Northern California for years. The last terrorist bombing in California was on March 19, 1989 in San Diego at a military installation which injured one person. See: (Global Terrorism Database).
Less than an hour after the Oakland explosion, none other than Special Agent Frank Doyle, the bomb school instructor, took charge of the bomb scene investigation.
In a badly damaged piece of video footage, obtained by Bari’s legal team some years later, the police and FBI agents who attended the Bomb School can be heard bantering while waiting to be cleared to investigate Bari’s damaged car by demolitions experts (in case of additional explosives). At one point , Frank Doyle can be heard to say, “Well, this is it . .. . this is it, go to it! This is the final exam right here!” [Beth] Bosk, January 1995, op. cit.
There were at least five of his bomb school students at the scene, they were: Special Agent (SA) Frank Doyle, Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) Patrick Webb, SA John F Holford and Oakland Police Sergeant Myron Hanson, and they were overheard on a videotape joking about the scene being the “final exam.” Since he was the FBI’s terrorist squad, bomb expert and their instructor, other FBI and Oakland bomb investigators who were at the scene first deferred to his pronouncements about the evidence.
Adding to the evidence, the chief of Louisiana-Pacific private Humboldt County security force, Frank Wiggington a former deputy sheriff with the county was one of the participants in the bomb school. Nicholas Wilson, May 29, 1999 cit.
The reality was the first thing Doyle saw was the hole directly through Bari’s destroyed seat cushion to the street below and next he would notice the backseat was intact and as such hidden bombs under a seat don’t lend themselves readily to car ignition or brake pedal method of detonation as their wires would be exposed to the driver’s view, Doyle had to know it was an electrically detonated bomb, either remotely detonated or timed fused. As all electrically detonated bombs have an on/off switch (as this one had), nobody would be dumb enough to build an electrically detonated bomb without one as a safety precaution so had Bari been knowingly traveling with such a bomb, the switch would have been off. Even a 4 year -old child knows if she turns the light off, it never goes on by itself. So Doyle knew that the bombers and planners (his assistants) had “delivered her” into his possession and he deliberately lied and chose to participate in the crime, where aiding and abetting an attempted murder is a capital offence.
“Then the performer must have a realization of the element of time. He must know the proper time to start his trickery. He must know the importance of time in each detail of his performance.” (p.90) “His entire mind concentrated upon the performance. . . The entire “little theater” presentation. (p. 36) . . .For it takes practice to tell a convincing lie. Even more practice is needed to act a lie skillfully than is required to tell one.” (Melton, Wallace P.69)
“The trickster depends upon a form of thinking which will mislead the spectators rather than upon quickness and manipulative ability . . . when the mind has been deceived, it’s almost impossible to work backwards and discover the deception.”
As you can plainly see the bomb blew downward creating a hole that measured 2 feet by 4 feet. That is because the seat and Judi’s body provided enough resistance to “tamp” the explosion enough not to blow upward and kill her and Cherney. The pipe-bomb used, a booby-trap device with nails attached for shrapnel effect is completely consistent with Ted J Kaczynski’s bomb building abilities at the time and that he was a bobby-trap specialist who also used nails, tacks, lead, and wood splinters as shrapnel to maim and kill his victims.
As the more detailed account above in chapter 10 says: I had gone to the August 14, 1990 Judi Bari Coming-Out Rally with the express purpose of hoping to see the lord Avenger letter writer who I suspected was also the Argus letter writer as both had been stalking Judi Bari for years and maybe, just maybe he would show up at the Rally, but how was I to identify him? I did not know? So, I didn’t have a plan.
Excerpt from the Rally: . . . Then all of a sudden, while I was in mid-sentence, Cherney and his entourage heard Judi Bari was around the corner so he took most of the group plus Cindy with him. At the microphone there were four militant looking young women walking in circles around the microphone, protecting the area where Judi was going to speak. Twelve other people were milling around, when a suited guy starting setting up a tripod for a camera on the steps near the door of the building. Only a few feet from where I was standing, a lone white, straight looking male with light brown hair, about forty-five years old, and 5’11 to 6 foot of XL build in dark pants and a white sport shirt was watching and then stepped forward approaching the young women at the microphone. He began to speak loudly like he was giving a speech:
“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”
When he was done, I found myself staring directly into his face. The young women mocked him loudly and he left in a rush.
(I was never able to identify this man, although I suspected he was Kaczynski’s West Santa Rosa (CA) 15 year -long patron who had let Kaczynski use his house as a base, and it was he who I saw on national TV having been arrested with 71 machine guns, but never caught his name or where the arrest took place, only a photo of his white ranch house with the caption ”West Santa Rosa” a years long search of newspaper microfilm turned up nothing?). The hate statement was Pat Robertson’s I found out in 1991 when it was used at a Seattle Environmental Demo and recorded at the stage and I heard it over my car radio).
Excerpt continued: . . . When we received word that Judi Bari was using her walker slowly making her way around the building from the right, I started walking in her direction. When I got closer to the corner, I spotted a strange man a half a block, plus a street width away, he was moving toward the rally very quickly and stood out among the slower moving people on the street. He really caught my attention as he was taking extra-long steps, and raising his feet so high that I could see the soles of his shoes, he looked like a guy out of “trucking man comics.” He was so intent on getting to the rally that he was almost goose-stepping like Nazis, except he was bent forward at the waist, with his chin jutting forward. I could see his toxic-stressed frown of rage, his forehead was extremely furrowed, his face so pinched it appeared like everything in his face was caving into the space between his eyes and his nose.(Kaczynski was known for his fast, long strides) Back when I was a community college student I had worked and lived at the Connecticut Valley Hospital (CVH), a mental hospital in Middletown, Connecticut with men who had spent years on locked wards so my immediate reaction was “Yes, I bet that’s him, a Sicko!”
As he approached the light pole he looked up and his face had changed to normal, so I thought he’s not psychotic. There was recognition on his face as he read the street sign. Then he stopped at the corner on the other-side of the street from the federal building where other people were stopped and waited for the light but he stayed in place and put his eye glasses away just as I pasted up noting his red-stone college ring, “Get Real!” button and his polished plain black lace-up shoes (Dr. Sally M Johnson noted Kaczynski had a habit of taking his glasses off and on for reading. Chris Wait’s in his book said Kaczynski had only one pair of good shoes “a pair of military plain black lace ups”). He watched the slow approach of Judi Bari using her walker and her entourage. Judi and about thirty people slowly made their way to the corner across the street from this man I now suspected. When Judi was directly across the street from him, he advanced and stepped toward her. He left the sidewalk going into the street, then dropped into a half- squat, the urban “on-guard” knife-fighting position with his arms stretched out toward Judi Bari and the most evil look on his face as I have ever seen. Just as Judi Bari passed by using her walker across the street and then he stood a half-a-block away from the demo trying to hear what was being said. After twenty-minutes of observing him and it was obvious he wasn’t going to join the rally I walked up directly behind him and I was astounded to discovered that he had shaved the bald-spot on his head, which I would later learn was consistent with Kaczynski’s collection of disguises found in his cabin.
The following day I wrote that from his dress he was a narcissistic and exccentric egghead ivy- leaque looking type and from his red-stone college ring he was a Yalie (it was just a guess, as he reminded me of a narcissistic Yale professor who looked down his nose at everybody and also wore khakis pants), but then I remembered Yale rings had blue stones and Harvard Crimsom(red) rings and wrote in my long report that I suspected he was a Harvard grad, professor type.
It wasn’t until 1993, that I became aware of the Unabomber and suspected this was him as he had just bombed computer scientist David Gelernter on June 24,1993 at Yale, (Chris Waits birthday and was a Kaczynski obsession, Yale is only 18 miles from the site of Linda Ann Raynor’s execution on June 27, 1992 almost a one year anniversary, another one of Kaczynski’s timeline obsessions of preforming killings and bombings on the anniversaries of earlier killings/bombings). Finally, I was able to confirmed from his arrest and especially his trial photos that he was the narcissistic ivy-leaque looking odd-ball “egghead at Bari’s rally. He was also the only bomber who was also a writer and had extensive knowledge of the bible. The Lord’s Avenger letter (LAL) established without a doubt the writer was the builder of two bombs (description confirmed by FBI Lab) saying the Bari/Cherney bomb was wrapped in a blue towel which was also confirmed by the FBI lab. It should be remembered that Kaczynski was not the bomb placer; that job was given to sometimes -timber faller, timber company activist, Bob Albonico, a former US Army engineer who had demolition experience in Viet Nam, who is suspected because of statements, threats etc. (verified by my polygraph results, ”No deception detected”) and he left an extensive traceable money trail of $32,700 two days after the Bari/Cherney Oakland car bombing.
Note: Judi Bari and Linda Ann Raynor both lived in West Santa Rosa and their names and photos appeared in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Linda Ann Raynor worked as a AIDS Hospice organizer and taught how to organize them. Before her execution her AIDS Hospice had been demonstrated against at night. Five weeks after her execution I went to the murder site posing as a newspaper reporter (I had been to the Bird Sanctuary on my first date in High School 22 years earlier), after being directed by park security to look for a small pile of rocks at the remote beach’s edge. And after two days of looking for a murder weapon and finding no rocks at all on what was a glacial-runoff deposited sand bar. I returned to the only rocks puzzled, but nearby I spotted a blue towel tucked under the rose bushes and remembered Bri’s bomb was wrapped in a blue towel. l then had a flash-back to the murder day and saw him place the pile of rock from his pocket into the center of the towel and then swung the towel like a club as she crawled into the rose bushes killing her. See:” Invitation to a Stoning” reason magazine.
The first bomb of the two bombs, the Cloverdale L-P Mill fire bomb, the Lord’s Avenger Letter writer claimed he placed to “Bring Infamy Down” on Judi Bari for her performance at the 1988 Anti-Abortion Clinic demonstration in Ukiah. Establishing: first, he was stalking Bari for years as also was the 1988 Argus letter writer who of course I suspected were the same person. Second, a Modus Operandi (MO) of committing a crime to place the blame on an enemy or competitor is established: first, with the Old Santa Rosa Naval Airfield firebombing/attempted murder , years later with the bombings that killed Gilbert Murray, president of the California Forestry Association (a timber industry lobbyist). And Thomas Mosser, a PR executive who formerly had worked for a PR firm that worked for the Exxon Mobil Bristol Bay oil spill was obviously killings to “Fit-UP” fix blame on environmentalists. in fact, the first thing the FBI asked Kaczynski’s neighbor Chris Waits was, “Did Kaczynski ever talk about radical environmentalism?” Kaczynski was in no way a radical environmentalist: period. Kaczynski in fact had in a written statement against, or even an hatred of Earth First! which he stated Earth First! was taken over by leftists (of whom he had a written monomaniacal obsessive hatred) for being (social) reformists and an “Adversary Culture,” so he had reasons to strike back at his perceived competitors, (Spitefulness (often petty, revenge) is a major trait of a psychopath), to ”bring infamy down” on Earth First!
So, with that further establishment of Kaczynski’s MO, it’s only a matter of backward reasoning as to ask why the Cloverdale Fire Bomb, the West Santa Rosa Naval Airfield firebombing/attempted murder and the 1968 firebombing at Wheeler Hall at UC Berkeley to “bring infamy down” on the protesting Latino Students who wanted a Latino Studies Program at UCB: of which Kaczynski is suspected because he is a notorious monomaniacal obsession of hatred of “Identity politics.” It should also be noted Kaczynski also used like Santa Rosa Naval Airfield fire and Cloverdale Mill firebombs using gas cans and that is consistent with his use of gas can bombs at the University of Utah and UC Berkeley in 1982 which he bombed twice. Then there’s Kaczynski’s timeline mentality exposed by Chris Waits, his neighbor who exposed Kaczynski’s obsession with the date of June 24. And my connections of his timeline mentality habit in four incidents, where he committed bombings or (suspected) killings on the anniversaries of earlier incidents. So, whether you believe my ID of him there are a handful of people who are still involved with the case who also (without my input) suspect Kaczynski as the bomb builder of the Bari/Cherney Oakland bomb.
In contrast to the Bari/Cherney bombing, if a shape-molded bomb material used in Operation Condor’s killings of former Chilean diplomat Orlando Letelier in Wash. D .C. ,on Sept 21,1976 or same type of bomb used to kill ex-Chilean General Carlos Prats, Sept. 30th, 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. These bombs were molded into the car’s under-carriage of the driver’s side and the explosion was “tamp” by the ground, so it blew up-ward blowing off Letelier’s legs. This type of bomb would have been consistent with Kaczynski’s improved 1995 bomb making ability. Through-out the book I try to connect the dots on Kaczynski’s history and I prove without doubt that he received advanced explosives training in bomb building from what I suspect was the Freedom Network. Kaczynski’s advanced explosive training which will later in this story be confirmed by scientists from the Sandia National Laboratory. (See below
It was Doyle who overruled the Oakland sergeant who got there first and said the bomb was under the driver’s seat and that he could see the pavement under the car through the hole in the seat bottom. It was Doyle who falsely said the bomb was on the floor behind the driver’s seat where it would have been easily seen. It was also Doyle who falsely claimed that two bags of roofing nails found in the back of Bari’s car matched the finish nails taped to the bomb for shrapnel effect, when in fact they were not even the same type, and were clearly different to the naked eye.
“Next, it is necessary to restate that trickery depends basically upon elementary psychology. One who expects to perform trickery must understand that the object of the trickster is to deceive the mind rather than the eye,” (P.88)
Judi Bari had worked as a carpenter and was in the process of finishing the house she and Sweeney had bought in Redwood Valley. So, it was natural for her to have two bags of roofing nails in the back of her car. A situation that shows how completely Doyle’s trickery had shut down the thinking of the other officers.
For those skeptics: roofing nails are used to secure roofing asphalt shingles to the plywood sub-roof. They have a large flat head about as large as your largest finger nail. The head is large because the roofing-tiles a are a semi-soft asphalt composite and a strong wind can lift the exposed bottom of the shingle and blow it away weren’t for the roofing nails large head. Also, the body of the roofing nail is a little shorter than ¾ of an inch and is serrated to grip the plywood. Finish nails have in contrast a very small head with an indentation for a punch; they are used to secure trim to the edge of an indoor window casing. Where after nailing they are counter-sunk with the punch and the hole filed with putty and lightly sanded when dry, so when painted over there are no visible holes.
Doyle also hypothesized that the bomb had her guitar on top of it. Further proof that this is a transport violation, not an attack. Like the seat (above), the guitar case had survived relatively intact. The Oakland P.D. bomb expert had been trained by Doyle and disputed none of his conclusions.
Other officers on the scene testified that Doyle argued with them, and quoted him saying, “I’ve been looking at bomb scenes for 20 years, and I’m looking at this one, and I’m telling you can rely on it. This bomb was visible to the people who loaded the back seat of this car.” (Paul Wolf, p. 61)
The “at-a-tangent thinking” is quite a descriptive phrase of the manner in which the trickster plans his work. He must think of something to do or say which touches the subject, actually shoots off from it. Because the comment touches the subject, it will not be noticed that it is actual is going away from the subject rather than around it.” (p.82)
the FBI knew as early as May of 1989 from their FBI agent informant Michael Fain that Arizona, Earth First!ers refused to accept the explosives he had offered. The idea that FBI Agent Frank Doyle didn’t know the L-P Cloverdale “failed bombing” wasn’t a put-up-job goes against his history.
Lt. Mike Sims, head of the homicide division of the OPD, assigned the case to Sgt. Michael Sitterud and Sgt. Robert Chenault. On hearing SA Frank Doyle was on the scene Sgt. Sitterud did not attempt to conduct his own investigation. At some point, Doyle said that the bomb must have been behind the driver’s seat where it would have been visible to those in the car. Sgt. Chenault said, based on Doyle’s nail evidence, that the bag of nails found in the hatchback were “Identical” to those attached to the bomb. Sgt. Chenault filled out an affidavit which was presented to a Judge in order to obtain a search warrant on Bari’s and Cherney’s homes. Anderson Valley Advertiser Hank Sims
Another suspicious accusation of the FBI’s is their identification of where the bomb had been placed in Bari’s vehicle. According to Frank Doyle, the pair were presumed guilty, and must have known the bomb was in the car, because it had been reportedly placed on the floorboards of the car’s left, rear passenger compartment in plain sight. The evidence clearly shows this was not the case. To begin with, initial reports by police officers and one fire fighter place the location of the bomb under the driver’s seat. [Eureka Times-Standard, May 28, 1990]
“In fact, the very first Oakland Police officer, Gribi, to arrive declared, “I am now photographing the car; I am photographing the damage under the driver’s seat.” This testimony was contradicted by Oakland Police Sergeant Sitterud who arrived ten minutes later and described the bomb’s location in his report as having been in the rear passenger compartment. However, it was apparent that he made this declaration only after Frank Doyle told him where the bomb supposedly was. SItterud testified, “ I viewed the white Subaru along with an agent of the FBI, Frank Doyle. Frank Doyle told me the bomb was on the backseat floorboards. “Who Bombed Judi Bari?, film by Darryl Cherney and Mary Liz Thompson 2012.
. . .Oakland Police Lt. Sims testified that he could see right through it to the street below and the car frame was buckled directly under it. . . Judi Bari, October 19, 1994 op. cit.
The police and FBI also claimed that the bomb could not have been hidden under the driver’s seat, because such a bomb would not fit there, however Redwood Summer organizers demonstrated, at a July 5, 1990 press conference, that this assertion was false by easily placing a mockup of the bomb, in this case a section of pipe twelve inches long and two inches in diameter, under the driver’s seat of an identical vehicle. “Redwood Summer Bombing: Police Framing, Not Investigating,” by Richard Johnson, Mendocino Country Environmentalist, July 1, 1990
Finally, the FBI’s own lab analysis of the hole in the floor of Bari’s car also corroborated the photographic evidence. According to the forensic tests, the device had been attached to a piece of plywood, just the right size to fit under the drivers seat, so that it wouldn’t inadvertently move while the vehicle was in motion. Furthermore, the bomb had been covered with a blue piece of cloth so that it was hidden from Bari’s and Cherney’s view. Fragments of this blue cotton fabric had been found in Bari’s back following the explosion. [David] Harris, op. cit. page 329
The pipe that housed the bomb had end caps which blew off and made impact points on the right beside the gearshift and on the left beside the front left (driver’s) door. [Beth] Bosk, January 1995, op.cit.
As Darryl Cherney points out in his movie “Who Bombed Judi Bari” photos of both Judi’s destroyed seat cushion, and an intact guitar case and testimony by the operating surgeon who was not interviewed before her arrest as to where Bari’s injuries were and as they were in her pelvic region and not her lower back where Doyle claimed. This was not a systematic investigation but was a “Railroading,” A “Fit-UP!”
Furthermore, the nature of Bari’s wounds rule -out the FBI’s claim. Her injuries resulting from the explosion—four breaks in her pelvis, a smashed sacrum. A crushed coccyx bone, and a deep puncture wound in her buttocks where she was impaled by a spring from her car seat, all the way to the bone—could not resulted from a blast from the rear floorboard and were entirely consistent with the concealment of the bomb under her driver’s seat. She also suffered injuries to her right leg and internal soft tissue damage, but not a scratch on her back in stark contradiction with what one would have expected to find had the bomb been placed on the vehicle’s left rear passenger floorboards.
Richard Johnson, July 1, 1990. Op. cit.
Officer Walter Ludwig of the OPD filled out an arrest warrant for Judi Bari at 3:00 PM, three hours after the bomb went off in her car. Cherney was arrested later held on $100,000 bail (spent three nights in jail).Later, at a 7:45 PM briefing that evening at Oakland Police Dept. headquarters about 30 investigators, half FBI and half OPD officers received a briefing led by Supervisor (SSA) John Reikes, head of the FBI San Francisco bureau’s “Squad 13” counter-terrorism unit, who gave a rousing, inflammatory speech about Earth First!
If the “Forests Forever” initiative, Prop. 130, had passed in the fall 1990 election, the three big logging corporations of the redwood region – Georgia Pacific, Louisiana Pacific and Pacific Lumber – would have lost billions of dollars. It would have put an end to unsustainable liquidation logging and clear-cutting and ended industry control over the board that wrote timber regulations. With an enormous financial motive to defeat the initiative, the corporations hired the giant public relations firm Hill & Knowlton to manage a PR campaign to turn public opinion against the initiative. An important part of the campaign was to derail Redwood Summer and it was drawing media attention to the over-logging, which would work in favor of Prop. 130. (Paul Wolf 59)
Then in a well-televised segment, the Berkeley Police raided the Seeds of Peace house with guns drawn and tore the place apart looking for a bomb factory. Then also there was the well-publicized FBI helicopter trips to Judi’s and Darryl’s homes. The police even extracted nails from a window sash at Judi’s house even though they knew the roofing nails in her car didn’t match the finish nails wrapped around the pipe bomb.
The basic question of any criminal investigation was coined by Marco Tulio Cicero in Rome: “Cui Bono?”—literally translated as “who benefits?” Well, of course, it’s obvious to even the casual observer, “The Timber Companies.”

Of Course, the story of the Oakland car bombing and arrest of Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney went nation-wide.
For the next two months, the FBI and police held a series of press conferences where they dribbled out false evidence of the pair’s guilt to feed a drumbeat of sensational media coverage. (Paul Wolf, p57) As the FBI and police smeared Bari, Cherney and Earth First! as terrorists after the bombing, the PR Company quickly put out propaganda falsely labeling Prop.130 “The Earth First! Initiative,” and calling it “too extreme.” By some reports, they spent up to $20 million by the time voters defeated the initiative by a narrow margin.
So, the short of it is by early September 1991 when the FBI received my typed page and half letter, Dear Sgt. John Brown letter, saying “Now I know now what has been going on in Covelo.” (I’m sure he also suspected). I’m sure the more straight, most numerous at the time were conservative Roman Catholic and Mormon , “normals” FBI law enforcement types (conformist) who suspected if they had checked it out what I was writing would of found I wasn’t just an environmentalist blowing smoke up their ass, but that “Dr.” john Phillip Nichols, Lew Dunn, Steven Segal and Robert Booth Nichols were all connected and if they interviewed the only householder on Mill Street, Covelo or the 195 former employees of the L-P Saw Mill they would find that I was right about the operational/planning house. But these “normal” FBI agent didn’t go against the fiction that Bari/Cherney were guilty of transporting a bomb.
But “normal people” aren’t in charge of the FBI and they certainly weren’t allowed in FBI management where only schizoid types who truly believed in the schizoid J Edgar Hoover’s legacy (fuck the Constitution, the FBI knows best!) climb management ladder. It’s been stated by FBI “normal” agents that it necessary for them to find a niche in the FBI organization where they can build their expertise and advance their careers or else they would be a street agent until they retired. The FBI’s Richard Held jr., the manager of the San Francisco FBI field office knew if Sgt. John Brown or anyone from the FBI didn’t interview me, nothing would be written down to be found on the civil suit discovery, so all my hard work and risk would be deeply buried in an informant index and never see the light of day.
FBI records obtained though the Freedom of Information Act show that the FBI infiltrated and spied on Earth First! from its beginning in 1980, with the earliest known FBI report on it dated 1981. Heavily censored FBI documents obtained through Bari’s suit indicate weekly meetings in spring 1990 between an FBI agent and a secret informant in N. California. Deposition testimony by Oakland Police Department officers and FBI agents states the FBI had an informant on EF! leaders, and the FBI told OPD that Cherney and Bari were already “the subjects of an investigation in the terrorist field” when they were bombed. They could have been under surveillance when the bomb was placed. (Paul Wolf 59)
May 27, 1990 Eureka Times-Standard Advertisement announcing the Right to Work rally. Produced by Aahlberg and Cox Advertising Concepts Inc.
.JUNE 1, 1990, RIGHT TO WORK RALLY
6,000 Loggers and Mill workers showed up.
(The Bari/Cherney bombing and arrest was undoubtedly timed to bolster worker morale to insure a large turnout for this event).
Held at College of the Redwoods Community Stadium in Eureka,CA.
“On Friday, June 1, 1990, big timber struck back (Wobbly action and the coming Redwood Summer) with a spectacle of its own—a display of hegemonic logging culture it called the “Right to Work Rally,” a five hour show of “worker solidarity” in protection of “private property and our lifestyle,” as the advertisement for the event in the Eureka Times Standard proclaimed. The mills shut down for half a day, and the workers convened at a local stadium.
Presiding over the event was William Perry Pendley, president and counsel for the Colorado-based Mountain States Legal Foundation* and a leader in what was then called the wise-use movement, but had begun as the so-called sagebrush rebellion . . .On the eve of Redwood Summer, Pendley roused the crowd at the Humboldt’s (County) Right to Work Rally with a fiery speech: “We are in the midst of an environmental passion that has gotten totally out of hand,” the Eureka Times-Standard quoted under the front page head-line “Thousands Rally for ‘Right to Work,’”. . . The timber industry is “under siege,” Pendley said. Bruce Vincent of Libby Montana, executive director of Communities For-a –Great Northwest and others spoke.

SANDIA NATIONAL LAVATORIES EXPLOSIVE EXPERTS:
In a New York Times, September, 1996 article at the time of Kaczynski’s arrest about the ten note books in which advanced explosive formulas were found, which, Chris Cherry, an explosives expert and supervisor at the Sandia National Lavatories said that:
“Kaczynski had achieved a technical breakthrough that doubled the destructive power of his bombs, with increased size.” Cherry continued to say that “The formulas were so advance d only a small number of people had knowledge of them; my assistants, Vic Poissen and Red Ovenly, and that did not include any FBI Agents.” (evidence that Kaczynski received explosive training)
