For the first time in history, the FBI has added a domestic terrorist to its list of “Most Wanted” terror suspects.
Daniel Andreas San Diego, a 31-year-old computer specialist from Berkeley, is wanted for the 2003 bombings of two corporate offices in California. San Diego is an animal rights activist who graduated to bombing for his cause.
The explosions caused minor damages and no injuries. A group calling itself “Revolutionary Cells” took responsibility for the blasts, saying they targeted the companies because they performed drug and chemical experiments on animals. There is a $250,000 reward for information leading to his capture.
San Diego is the 24th person on the list, and the only domestic terror suspect. It seems a bit silly that this man who has caused no deaths is on the same terror list as 9/11 mass-murderer Osama bin Laden. More likely, this is a politically-motivated move to balance things by adding a left-wing terrorist to the list just days after the Obama administration was criticized for reports suggesting that military veterans could be susceptible to right-wing extremism. Perhaps the real message is: extremism is bad on all sides.
