Robert Wexler, Code Pink's Congressman

May 28, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - "Today Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL) called for former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan to appear before the House Judiciary Committee," to explore "charges" made by the Quisling, ex-Bush spokesman in a recently published poison pen book.

Congressman we will let your associations speak for your integrity in this matter. By the way how is your effort to impeach Mr. Cheney coming along?

While you are at it, mind explaining why saying the following recently on television adds to your credentials and stature?

"I enjoy cocaine because it's a fun thing to do...I enjoy the company of prostitutes for the following reasons: it's a fun thing to do. ... If you combine the two together it's probably even more fun." - Colbert Report

Shari'a Alert - Terror Linked CAIR Pressures Employer To Accommodate Muslim Women Who Refuse To Conform To Safety Regulations

May 28, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Council on American Islamic Relations, named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the nation's largest Hamas terror funding prosecution, is attempting to force Shari'a born Islamic dress codes down the throat of a Minnesota employer.

The case, on the surface at least, is simple; six Muslim women workers at the Mission Food plant located in St. Paul, Minnesota decided not to comply with Mission's uniform policy and as a result are not now working at the plant.

Mission has not taken disciplinary action against the six nor have the workers been fired, but as company spokesmen make clear, "Should these employees choose to adhere to the current Mission Foods uniform policy, they may return to their positions with the company. However, these positions will need to be filled as soon as possible and cannot be held indefinitely."

Mission's uniform policy was devised in order to comply with federal [OSHA] and state [MNOSHA] regulations governing worker safety.

CAIR's action in this matter reveals a methodology consistent not with assisting the rights of workers but instead of using faux labor actions to incrementally advance Shari'a into the workplace, via deception, intimidation and threat of legal action.

Why Are Prominent Jewish Groups Represented On Bernardin Center's Board Alongside Notorious Islamists?

By BEILA RABINOWITZ and WILLIAM MAYER

May 27, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Why are two officials of the American Jewish Committee and the Vice President of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago sitting on the National Advisory Board of the Catholic Theological Union's Bernardin Center, together with prominent Islamists?

In 2005 PipelineNews published an article Jews for Jihad? exposing the AJC's misguided interfaith outreach efforts which extended to working with CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the ongoing Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror prosecution. [see, below link to "List of Unindicted Co-conspirators and/or Joint Venturers" US v. Holy Land Foundation, et al.]

This relationship was forged despite the head of the AJC's Middle East and Counter Terrorism division, Yehudit Barsky, having labeled CAIR an "extremist" group and placing them among faux mainstream Muslim organizations in America, many of which are "pro-Saudi and pro-Muslim Brotherhood..."

"...the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), "founded in the 1980s by pro-Hamas activists." [source, Expert: Saudis have radicalized 80% of US mosques, http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1132475689987&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull]

Ms. Barsky additionally makes the point that interfaith activity is fraught with problematic considerations and is often put forth disingenuously. In a cautionary note she advises, "to proceed with caution, [since] some of the [extremist] organizations have concluded that interfaith dialogue is a good way to spread the ideology." Proceeding thoughtfully seems only prudent since as Barsky makes clear, "the people now in control of teaching religion [to American Muslims] are extremists...Eighty percent of the infrastructure [American mosques] is controlled by these extremists."

Bassem Youssef - A Disgruntled Arab Employee's War Of Subversion Against The FBI

By WILLIAM MAYER & BEILA RABINOWITZ

May 26, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - For five years now, Bassem Youssef - a Coptic Christian - chief of the agency's Communications Analysis Unit [CAU] and its highest ranking level 4 Arab speaker, has been carrying on a harmful, so far legally fruitless, public war of attrition against his employer, intent upon proving he is the victim of discrimination and related fallout, solely based upon his Egyptian ethnicity.

In the days after September 11, Youssef became convinced that he had been denied promotion to a position within the Bureau's International Terrorism Operations Section [ITOS] for which he thought he was uniquely qualified because of his Arab language skills. This led to his filing of an Equal Employment Opportunity lawsuit and in 2003 another, under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act alleging discrimination and job retaliation.

Working hand-in-hand with an ideologically friendly media, Youssef and his agents - primarily his attorney Stephen M. Kohn - Director of the lefty Whistleblowers.org - has wrapped himself into the relentless political attack on the Bush Administration's war on Islamic terror, especially regarding the Patriot Act and its surveillance provisions.

In his public and written pronouncements Youssef has imputed sinister motives to the FBI's efforts to deal with the international and domestic jihad carried out by radical Muslims.

While engaged in this campaign, Mr. Youssef has spent an inordinate amount of time away from his job - an important analytical position - which when combined with his increasingly hostile attitude, raises serious questions regarding his stated devotion to the FBI and in a larger sense, its law enforcement responsibility of defending the United States in a post 9/11 world.

Though somewhat limited by order of the FBI as to what he can say publicly, Youssef is out on the hustings; at an appearance earlier this year at the American Library Association - a group noted for its hostility to the Patriot Act - and just last week, in testimony before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, he continues to air his version of the FBI's dirty laundry.

Shell Oil President Hits Home Run In Senate Testimony

By WILLIAM MAYER

May 21, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In just concluded testimony before the Senate's Judiciary Committee, outgoing Shell Oil Company President John Hofmeister delivered a withering indictment against onerous government regulation - inspired by a radical green agenda - of domestic and offshore oil exploration.

Hofmeister placed the blame for high energy prices and dependence on foreign imports squarely where it belongs, on the backs of legislators stating, "U.S. production has fallen steadily for the last 35 years. Oil production in this country peaked in the 1970s. As U.S. consumption of oil has doubled, domestic oil production has fallen off nearly 40 percent. Why? In large part, this is the result of government policies that placed important oil and gas resources off limits..."

Hofmeister's testimony is a breath of fresh air, in an election year when all the major candidates have cozied up to the radical environmentalists whose feigned conservation masks an anti-progress, anti-capitalist agenda.

Palestinian Journalists Correctly Blame "Refugee Problem" On Arabs

May 20, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In an investigative piece recently written by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook for Palestinian Media Watch, the writers reveal that despite heavily politicized claims to the contrary, the "Palestinian Refugee Problem" was wholly created by the Arabs, as part of a plan of jihad against the young Israeli state in 1948.

In coming to this conclusion the author's rely not upon their own research, but on the writings of Palestinian journalists, stating:

"The Arabs who became refugees in 1948 were not expelled by Israel but left on their own to facilitate the destruction of Israel, according to a senior Palestinian journalist writing in a Palestinian daily. This plan to leave Israel was initiated by the Arab states fighting Israel, who promised the people they would be able to return to their homes in a few days once Israel was defeated."

Jawad Al Bashiti, the above referenced Palestinian journalist wrote in Al-Ayyam just a few days ago:

"...The reasons for the Palestinian Catastrophe are the same reasons that have produced and are still producing our Catastrophes today. During the Little Catastrophe, meaning the Palestinian Catastrophe the following happened: the first war between Arabs and Israel had started and the "Arab Salvation Army" came and told the Palestinians: 'We have come to you in order to liquidate the Zionists and their state. Leave your houses and villages, you will return to them in a few days safely. Leave them so we can fulfill our mission (destroy Israel) in the best way and so you won't be hurt.' It became clear already then, when it was too late, that the support of the Arab states (against Israel) was a big illusion. Arabs fought as if intending to cause the "Palestinian Catastrophe".

Culture War Shocker - Mall Shame, As Spencer Gifts Markets Sexually Charged Material To California Pre-Teens
 

By TOM FREDRIKSEN, special to PipeLineNews.org

May 18, 2008 - Eureka, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Hot on the heels of the CA Supreme Court's sanctioning of gay marriage, Spencer Gifts, a nationwide mall retailer, is blatantly marketing sexually provocative material to pre-teens in full public view in at least one Northern California town.

The item?

A black and white T-shirt emblazoned with, "Overworked and Underfucked." The shirt was positioned on a clothing rack placed in front of the entrance of Spencer's store in the Bayshore Mall located in Eureka, California. The complex is owned by General Growth Properties.

Though this reporter brought the existence of the item to the attention of one of the firm's employees, she refused to remove it, though the item was in full view of children. The size of the shirt was listed as "small," and one would have a difficult time believing that it was not being marketed to the numerous 10-12 year olds who were in the area at the time of this writing.

Approximately three hours later, two females under direction of Old Glory Radio were sent into the store as a follow up to this story. The shirt was still available and purchased. During the purchase the clerk was cheerful, offering to enroll the purchaser in the Spencer's, "Underground Program."

It is unknown how many similar items are being made available in this program.

 

Dutch Artist Nekschot's Muslim Cartoons Deemed "Possible Incitement To Violence"

WARNING - THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE CONTAINS DISTURBING IMAGES

By BEILA RABINOWITZ & WILLIAM MAYER

 

May 17, 2008 - SanFrancisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Gregorius Nekschot the Dutch cartoonist who was arrested for his work last Tuesday now faces a jail sentence. The public prosecutor has decided that eight of his cartoons "are beyond the pale" and that Nekschot is guilty of "discrimination and possible incitement to violence."

The Dutch government has reportedly been attempting to pull cartoons from the internet, while the Department of Justice has judged scores of Nekschot's cartoons and decided that most fell within the scope of freedom of expression in Holland.

The arrest of Nekschot has struck fear into journalists, artists and Members of Parliament over the government's repression directed at freedom of expression.

Unbelievably, according to Justice Minister Hirsch Ballin, the investigation into Nekschot does not mean that freedom of expression is being limited. [source, translated from the Dutch, http://www.trouw.nl/hetnieuws/nederland/article989834.ece/Minister_ontkent_inperking_vrije_meningsuiting]

The public prosecutor has so far refused to say which cartoons will be subject to legal action. The arrest of Nekschot was the result of a long investigation. The complaint goes back to 2005 and was sent to the Reporting Point For Discrimination Internet (Meldpunt Discriminatie Internet) who forwarded it the public prosecutor.

Further displaying the twisted logic involved in this matter, the complaint against Nekschot was made by imam Abdul Jabber Van de Ven a radical Islamist who lauded the murder of Theo van Gogh and said he hoped politician Geert Wilders will be also be killed by a Muslim.

Dutch Cartoonist Who Mocked Muslims Jailed For "Discrimination"

By BEILA RABINOWITZ & WILLIAM MAYER

May 16, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In another blow to free speech due to the country's descent into multicultural confusion, a Dutch satirical cartoonist, who writes under the pseudonym of Gregorius Nekschot was arrested this week for discrimination on a warrant ensuing from a 2005 complaint lodged by a Muslim convert, imam Abdul Jabbar Van de Ven.

In a brutal display of intimidation, ten police officers apprehended him while confiscating his computer, backup disks and mobile telephone, without which he can't work. He spent Tuesday night in jail and was released on Wednesday after a lengthy series of interrogations.

Van de Ven gained notoriety when he lauded the 2004 murder of Theo Van Gogh by Mohammed Bouyeri and said that he hoped to see Dutch MP Geert Wilders meet a similar fate. [source, translated from the Dutch, http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/328]

Van de Ven's complaint was channeled through the "Reporting Point for Discrimination Internet" [Meldpunt Discriminatie Internet, MDI] which is partially funded by the government and whose mission is to investigate and prosecute complaints of discrimination. Van de Ven coordinated an effort primarily via internet forums to write to the MDI to protest Nekschot's caricatures of Muslim extremists, which resulted in an avalanche of emails. The complaint was then passed on to the public prosecutor.

Nekschot is being charged with, "discriminating against Muslims and people with a dark skin color."

Though he publishes mainly on the internet, his book "Nekschot Sick Jokes" has also come under police scrutiny. The artist is well known for his hard hitting cartoons in which he makes fun of various ideologies and religions.

Fifth Column Muslim Police Officer Remains On Payroll After Disrupting Terror Investigation

May 14, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Fairfax, VA police officer Sgt. Weiss Rasool - who was sentenced to 2 years probation in federal court on April 22, having plead guilty to unauthorized access to the Violent Crime and Terrorist Offender File, maintained as part of the National Crime Information Center system - unbelievably continues to work for the department, pending an internal review of his case.

Rasool checked the databases to help the target of a federal terror investigation - who knew him, belonging to the same mosque as Rasool - and left a voice mail message tipping the suspect off that he was under surveillance by the FBI and being followed by undercover vehicles. [source, Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/22/AR2008042201994_pf.html]

The target was apprehended in November 2005 and deported, his identity and the charges involved have so far not been disclosed. At the time of his arrest, he and his family were fully dressed and busily engaged in destruction of evidence at 6 in the morning, suggesting that they had been tipped off.

During the investigation, Rasool was given a lie-detector test with which it was determined that he "was not fully compliant" because of his evasiveness. As a result, law enforcement does "not believe that he has been truthful."

Dutch Rewrite History To Show Moroccan's As Liberators Of Europe

By BEILA RABINOWITZ

May 14, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Instead of trying to reinforce Dutch historical identity, one of the country's politicians is trying to rewrite it in the name of diversity. On the eve of "Liberation Days," Minister Jet Bussenmaker [Labour party] decided to include Moroccans, Surinamers and Antillians as liberators of Europe, despite their insignificant contribution.

Bussenmaker also concluded that this "history" must be taught to public school teachers and be included as part of the standard curriculum. According to one commentator the Dutch May 4th and 5th celebrations are "too white."

Concern about the feelings of the non-native Dutch population feeling left out of the World War II commemorations was raised several years ago when Moroccan youths were seen playing football with memorial wreaths which had been laid at a monument for the war dead.

Censorious MN State Rep Mindy Greiling, Lauded By Terror Friendly Group CAIR

May 13, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Branding Minneapolis Star writer Katherine Kersten an "Islamophobic Columnist" in its May 12 newsletter, the Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR - a Saudi funded unindicted co-conspirator in the nation's largest terror prosecution - is championing a campaign to censor a critic of Islamic radicalism in Minnesota, led by State Representative, Mindy Greiling [DFL].

The controversy stems from a series of reports made by Ms. Kersten, critical of the operating practices at Minnesota's Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy [TIZA], a taxpayer-funded charter school for kindergarten through eighth grade pupils.

As Kersten wrote in a April 9, 2008 column:

 

"...TIZA has many characteristics that suggest a religious school. It shares the headquarters building of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, whose mission is 'establishing Islam in Minnesota '. The building also houses a mosque. TIZA's executive director, Asad Zaman, is a Muslim imam, or religious leader, and its sponsor is an organization called Islamic Relief. Students pray daily, the cafeteria serves halal food - permissible under Islamic law -- and 'Islamic Studies' is offered at the end of the school day..."

Ms. Greiling, quick to defend the Islamizing of a public school, wrote a letter to the Minneapolis Star in which she claimed to have personally visited TIZA. Greiling's conclusions after being led around by the nose by TIZA's Executive Director, Asad Zaman, who just happens to be an imam, are unfortunately predictable:

 

"...What I learned during a tour late last month is that none of Kersten's concerns that the charter school is promoting religion in violation of a state law that prohibits public schools from doing so is valid. What I did see was excellent teachers hard at work in the classroom focused on improving student achievement..."

Based upon this staged visit Greiling then went on to demand Ms. Kersten's head, charging her with "reckless journalistic standards" and a "gross distortion of facts."

Report By Watchdog Group States Palestinian Fatah Government, "Allied With...Enemies Of The US"

May 13, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As noted previously State Department Pushes Israelis Towards "Peace Process" While The PA Glorifies Terror Bomber Who Murdered 8 Students the Palestinian Fatah government, led by Mahmoud Abbas, is engaged in a policy perfected by Fatah's previous leader, the terrorist Yasser Arafat, who made nice with the Western press in English, but gave all manner of support to the intifada and jihad in Arabic, when the cameras had been cased up and put away.

A new report, by Palestinian Media Watch makes it clear that not only is the Abbas government supportive of terror, but that it has increasingly allied itself with enemies of the United States including Iran, Syria, North Korea and Hugo Chavez' Venezuela, stating:

 

"There is ample evidence that the contacts between the Palestinian Authority and the enemies of the United States have the characteristics of relations between allies who share a common ideological bond...Hatred of the United States and disdain for its role of world leadership are the essence of this bond...Palestinian state were to be established before a qualitative shift in ideology, it is inevitable that the proposed state would join the alliance of enemies of the US and would strengthen those countries in undermining American goals for world peace."

Anti-Hate Group Decries Ex-Florida Governor Graham Speaking At Event With CAIR's Altaf Ali

May 10, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Americans Against Hate, a Florida based civil rights and terrorism watchdog group, is protesting an "interfaith" event to be held today at the Miami Lakes Congregational Church.

Scheduled speakers include Altaf Ali, the Executive Director of the Florida office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR] and former U.S. Senator and Florida Governor Bob Graham.

According to Americans Against Hate Chairman, Joe Kaufman, Ali was recently disinvited from a similar prayer breakfast after the organization's ties to Hamas were revealed.

In an interview with PipeLineNews, Mr. Kaufman stated:

 

"CAIR recently was named a co-conspirator by the U.S. government for its role in the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. And CAIR-Florida recently stated its support for Hamas.

In May of 2007, CAIR was labeled as a co-conspirator for a Hamas financing trial that named leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), an Islamic charity that was shut down by the U.S. government in December of 2001, as defendants. During the trial, evidence was presented proving CAIR's involvement in Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook's Palestine Committee, a group whose goal was to raise money for Hamas from American shores...."

CAIR Showboats At Manzanar

May 8, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR, the Saudi funded Hamas mouthpiece, designated as a co-conspirator in America's largest terror prosecution, US v Holy Land Foundation (HLF)] "...continues down the path of stealth jihad, following a plan devised by the Muslim Brotherhood - in this instance marching with Japanese American's to the Southern California internment camp created by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Manzanar to suggest that Islamophobia is rampant and that American Muslims face discrimination on a daily basis, we must consider how such stunts impact the groups credibility as a self-proclaimed civil rights organization.

First as an aside, considering that fewer people were killed at Pearl Harbor [the event that set the internment process into motion] than during the 9/11 attacks by Muslim fanatics, the fact that there has been nothing comparable to Roosevelt's actions stands as conclusive evidence of the lack of exactly what CAIR sought to infer from their meaningless participation in the Manzanar event.

In a larger sense, however, it might prove instructive to review a little sourced document presented into evidence at the HLF trial on September 4, 2007 by U.S.prosecutor James T. Jacks. Specifically the governments filing regarded CAIR's unsuccessful effort to remove its name from the co-conspirator list, as a means of assessing the group's agendized posturing and overall veracity.

We find of particularly noteworthiness the manner in which the Department of Justice clearly links CAIR to both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Transfer Of Kifah Jayyousi, Dirty Bomber Padilla Accomplice, Halted

May 8, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - U.S. federal district judge Marcia Cooke has temporarily halted the transfer of Kifah Wael Jayyousi, a convicted terrorist [serving a 12 year sentence] and associate of "dirty bomber" Jose Padilla based on a motion filed by Jayyousi's attorney claiming his client is being subjected to racial profiling and discrimination.

Jayyousi's attorney is attempting to permanently halt moving him to the Communications Management Unit in the Federal Correctional Complex located in Terre Haute, Ind., which houses over two hundred inmates, many of them high profile jihadists.

The unit was created in response to criticism leveled at DOJ that convicted terrorists were not being adequately monitored, especially regarding their ability to communicate with outside sympathizers.

The most prominent example of which is the case of Omar Abdel Rahman's [convicted 1993 World Trade Center bombing conspirator] attorney Lynne Stewart, who conspired to smuggle messages from the "Blind Sheikh" to al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, an Egyptian terrorist group, designated by the U.S. State Dept. as a Foreign Terrorist Organization [FTO].

Stewart was subsequently convicted of providing material support to a terrorist organization.

The Muslim Interfaith Charade

By WILLIAM MAYER and BEILA RABINOWITZ

May 6, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Despite the outward appearance of infirmity, Omar Abdel-Rahman, the "Blind Sheikh" is a central figure in the Islamic global jihad. He was convicted in 1995 of conspiring to bomb the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993, which killed 6 and injured over 1,000.

Rahman is now serving a life sentence for that crime.

A precocious child, he started studying the Qur'an at an early age, committing much of it to memory. After graduating with a PhD in Qur'anic studies from Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Rahman took leadership roles in a number of jihadist groups including Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya and Egyptian Islamic Jihad, both offshoots of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Based upon his stature as a recognized Islamic scholar, he has the authority to declare religious findings or "fatwas," one of which countenanced the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981, a crime for which he was prosecuted but later acquitted and then finally expelled from Egypt.

About Sadat, Rahman has been quoted as saying, "...Sadat was not a Muslim. He made a mockery of Islam and its principles."

Finally outside the reach of Egyptian authorities, Rahman made his way to Afghanistan in the mid-1980s where he contacted an influential former professor, Abdullah Azzam. Azzam co-founder of the terrorist group, Maktab al-Khadamat [MAK, also known as the Afghan Services Bureau] along with Osama bin Laden. Maktab al-Khadamat was supplanted after the Soviet route in Afghanistan by a new organization, al-Qaeda, "the base," in Arabic.

llinois Law Enforcement Should Be Commended For "Mosque Storming" Exercise

May 6, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR, the Saudi funded Hamas mouthpiece and unindicted co-conspirator in the nation's largest terror prosecution] has predictably taken exception to a realistic security exercise in which officers from the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System [ILEAS] stormed the Continuing Recovery Center in Irving which had been transformed into the "Irving Mosque" for purposes of the event.

The security drill was based on a not at all unreasonable scenario in which a heavily armed terrorist group takes over a mosque and then holds hostages. The exercise took place on the evening of April 24 and involved nearly 30 different local law enforcement agencies.

While CAIR objected to the event, with Ahmed Rehab, the organization's Chicago executive director stating, "The use of a fake 'mosque' in this type of drill sends the wrong message to law enforcement officials who may now view mainstream institutions, such as Islamic houses of worship, as potential security threats," the exercise was realistic and the scenario all too believable given the prevalence of Islamic terrorism.

Claiming that the drill "Sends the wrong message," is a tragi-comical statement for anyone connected with CAIR - which has steadfastly refused to specifically and by name condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization - to make [see, CAIR Refuses To Condemn Hamas While Attempting To Censor Michael Savage] as is having Islamist Ahmed Rehab, acting as its spokesperson in this matter.

Bomb Rocks San Diego Federal Court Building

May 4, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force [JTTF] has responded to an explosion at the Edward J. Schwartz Federal Courthouse located at 940 Front Street, San Diego, California.

The blast described as "powerful" by FBI spokesmen, took place at approximately 1:40 am Sunday morning. The court house is near San Diego's busy nightclub district.

The explosive device, possibly a pipe bomb or a series of pipe bombs, damaged the court house entrance and lobby area. No one is believed to have been injured as a result of the bombing, though two members of the Federal Protective Services were in the building at the time of the attack.

JTTF is working the case in conjunction with the San Diego Fire Department Metro Arson Strike Team, the San Diego Police Department, the ATF, and Federal Protective Services.

It is hoped that surveillance cameras may provide additional evidence in the case, though they were not oriented towards the front of the building.

As we go to press no arrests have been made and no individual or group has come forward to claim responsibility.
