Three universities get terrorist threats, two evacuate campuses

posted at 12:41 pm on September 14, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Has the Islamist rage aimed at US embassies abroad started to reach into the heartland of America?  Three separate universities report receiving threats this morning, prompting evacuations in Texas, North Dakota, and an investigation in Indiana. Let’s start with the University of Texas, where the threat was explicit about a tie to al-Qaeda:

Threatening caller spurs UT evacuation

The University of Texas is evacuating all of its buildings due to threats on campus after a caller claiming to be with al-Qaida said he placed bombs all over campus that would go off around 10 a.m. — which has since passed.

“Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible,” read a message posted at 9:53 a.m. on the campus’ emergency alert website. “More information to come.”

UT Director of Communications Rhonda Weldon said the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a male with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus.

He said he was with al-Qaida and that these bombs would go off in 90 minutes.

North Dakota State followed shortly thereafter:

Students at North Dakota State University in Fargo and the University of Texas in Austin have been ordered to evacuate their respective campuses this morning because of bomb threats.

There was no indication that the two events were connected.

This alert was posted on NDSU’s website:

“NDSU is requiring all employees and students to leave campus by 10:15 a.m. This includes residence hall students, who, if necessary, should walk to locations off campus. This also includes the downtown buildings and agricultural facilities. NDSU received a bomb threat, prompting this evacuation. Updates will follow.”

At Valparaiso University in Indiana, the threat was left as a graffiti message, but no evacuation was apparently ordered:

The alert, posted early Friday, says “an unspecific threat to campus was made through a graffiti message alluding to dangerous and criminal activity alleged to be carried out during the chapel break period on Friday.

“The broad threat provided no details with respect to location or type. Please be on alert and report any suspicious activity to VUPD immediately by calling 911 or 464-5430.”

VUPD, local authorizes and the FBI investigated the threat and a thorough human and canine search of campus did not find anything suspicious, a later release said.

Fortunately, no attacks have come to pass, at least not yet.  These are likely efforts to create a little fear on the cheap, taking advantage of the unrest on the other side of the world.  Real AQ attacks don’t usually involve any warnings, certainly not specific warnings that allow civilians to get out of the line of fire.  The purpose of AQ attacks is usually to create as many civilian deaths as possible. Of course, this could be a way to test defenses, too, to adapt to American countermeasures, although there wouldn’t be much point of that if no warnings precede attacks.

I’m guessing that these are hoaxes, but that doesn’t mean that the perpetrators should be discounted.  The FBI and the courts need to make examples of them, if so.

GrannyDee on September 14, 2012 at 1:33 PM

I’d like to see the perpetrators hunted down, charges, tried and convicted, AND I think that since these campuses are very expensive to operate, and so are the law enforcement agencies, that the COST of the evacuations and investigations should be charged to the offender, once convicted, as well.

Doughboy on September 14, 2012 at 1:33 PM

I agree. However, due to the proximity in time of the calls there had to be some amount of coordination unless one individual was responsible for all and with today’s technology he/she/it should be apprehended quickly. IMO this is trying to capitalize (no pun intended)on the current happenings in the ME. Any disruption to our daily lives is a success to the jihadist.

And believe you me, I’d be speaking my mind in ways the MSM would never want to hear.

GrannyDee on September 14, 2012 at 1:42 PM

Academic Political Correctness is a religion that sends others to be martyrs.

Would someone write to Fox or someone who does real investigations and have them look at how (ahem) some ivy league programs have taken multiculturalism to diversity, to cultural awareness, to cultural sensitivity, to an absolute equivalency of US mores with any crackpot nation on earth.

The idea is strongly represented in such courses, and I would guess that our POTUS believes, that we are in an inferior nation that has been no end of trouble for the world.

Here is a plagarized quote:

Being culturally sensitive or competent does NOT mean knowing everything about every culture.
It is instead respect for differences, eagerness to learn, and a willingness to accept that there are
many ways of viewing the world.

Notice that none are better or worse, just “different”.

Look for a chart in the link below and find a complete explanation, if not diagram, of the system which led to bent over Americans all around the globe. It also is a framework for all of our POTUS’s ideas and even actions. Ie. We shake hands, they bow…same thing! We pray..he wants to kill other guys in Fort Hood, same thing.

I hope these people are not that dumb. Gotta pray.

It’s not “Islamist” rage. Its Muslim rage. “Islamist” is a PC word used to deny reality and it doesn’t even pass my spell checker.

Thank you, VorDaj. You’ve nailed it.

Does anybody here seriously believe that a majority of the so-called peaceful Muslims living the U.S., wouldn’t turn on us in a NY minute if the call went out to them?

Dearborn, MI comes to mind.

GrannyDee on September 14, 2012 at 1:49 PM

General Allen here all you disrespecters of the Great Religion of Peace. These fine well meaning upstanding Muslims were just stressed out from not being able to eat during the day during Ramadan.

Attention!!! General Petraeus here. I condemn the action of the individual in the United States who made a film disrespecting the Great Prophet Mohammad. That action was hateful. It was intolerant, and it was extremely disrespectful. I condemn the actions of a small number of individuals who have been extremely disrespectful to the Holy Qur’an. Together with our Muslim Partners in Peace, we must secure and serve the people of the Muslim world.

General Casey here! Stand at ease. Smoke ‘um if you got ‘em. No mater how tragic the untimely death of a few Americans might be to some, abroad or at home, we must not let this affect the diversity of those who watch our embassies and our schools, as if we did, that would be a much greater tragedy.

Let those who have been in service of this muslim loving tyrant against their own brothers and sisters now fight in a proper way against this muslim loving tyrant. Let those who have been wearing themselves out in both body and soul in vain attempt to appease him and muslims now labor for glorious honor against them. Behold! On the one side will be the completely destroyed tyrant and his muslims, on the other the fierce and righteous protectors of the Constitution and Christianity. On the one side will be the destroyed enemies of the Lord and the Constitution, on the other, their friends who will shout at the muslim loving tyrant as they destroy him in November, “It is for the Founding Fathers!”, “It is for the Founding Fathers!, and “Deus vult! Deus vult! Deus vult!”

I am as angry as you, Coffee. Having lived through the Carter administration, all I’ve been thinking since this started on 9-11 is, “Oh, no. Here we go again.”

The absolute disgust and fury I am feeling because of the massacre of four American citizens in Libya is more than I can even express. And to now find out that Obama and Hillary were warned 48 hours ahead of time, that there were no Marines stationed in Libya, that the Marines in Egypt couldn’t have bullets loaded in their guns…my Lord and my God, what has happened to our country?

We’re going to murder those lousy Hun c*cks*ckers by the bushel-fluking-basket. War is a bloody, killing business. You’ve got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours.”

Now, who do you think was more likely to have led to future peace? … and who do you think our volunteer force would be more likely to want to follow?

All your feelings are my feelings, too. Trying to remain calm on the outside, but inside I am so po’d at this administration, words fail me.

I have a fairly good friend who is such a liberal/progressive Dem it’s mind boggling. Sure hope she doesn’t call me. There’s no telling what I’m liable to say.

Granny I wasn’t paying attention during Carter….I am embarrassed to say but recall vividly the day Reagan got elected and those people were freed. But as I witness these events on top of ALL the other things are country is faced with, I too wonder “what has happened to our country?”

Oh goodness Megyn just said that Obama is going to be making those remarks at the base where our fallen are being received…I am so disgusted.

Correct! I went to UT-Arlington. The campus was crawling with these rude, gawking, insulting men. Each morning I would awake to the calls for prayers over the PA system.

I find it sortuv humorous that one of the most vile professors in Texas works in UT-Arlington, Jose Angel Guiterrez, who founded La Raza Unida in that area.

Hey y’all – checking in from UT Austin. We were evacuated this moring to the sound of shrieking sirens and it was kinda scary for a few minutes, but after a little while it became pretty clear there was no continuing threat.

Now back in the office working, although official UT activities don’t resume until 5 pm. Very quiet on campus as you might imagine…

Hey, Missy, good to know you’re a-ok.

Stay safe and on alert. Be sure to keep all your important, personal property close by, just in case.

Missy on September 14, 2012 at 3:05 PM
Happy for your safety !
Thanks for the report.

Pambi, are you listening to Hannity? He’s hitting Obama hard.

GrannyDee on September 14, 2012 at 3:08 PM

thanks Missy for the update. Ditto Keep your eyes and ears alert!

CoffeeLover on September 14, 2012 at 3:10 PM

I don’t get Hannity until 7pm

CoffeeLover on September 14, 2012 at 3:11 PM

Thanks GrannyDee. I am sure there are countless other countries that are thinking the same sadly.

Yeah, I’m sure the Germans and Brits are just thrilled that their embassies are also under attack because of that fraud Obama.

Just now checking into Sean. He’s justifiably PO’d, too.
He was nearly the ONLY one to warn us of Obama’s, um, tendancies toward ME values, back in 2008.
He’s so hot, I might not be able to take it too long. ;-)

Thanks y’all. It is all pretty weird. Everyone was told to leave campus, which was a pretty straightforward directive for us as our building is at the southern edge. And yet many if not most students, and some staff, just wandered out of the building toward the middle of campus, staring at their phones the whole time. I tried to redirect them but they just stared at me.

Even 30-40 minutes after the sirens started going off there were still stragglers, walking slowly and yip yapping to each other. What sitting ducks we all are.

Missy on September 14, 2012 at 3:17 PM

What sitting ducks we all are.

Probably more Hopey Changey voters with their heads up their behinds.

Sad, isn’t it?

GrannyDee on September 14, 2012 at 3:18 PM

Time to go. Things to do.

Take care, my friends. Stay strong.

Prayers to all.

Yeah. Hopefully if they are so unmotivated to protect themselves, they’ll turn out to be equally unmotivated to turn out and vote for The One in November.

MM reporting a threat toward the Kansas City Federal Blg.
I have no more on that, yet.

BREAKING: KC Federal Building Bomb Threat bit.ly/Ov70lP
14 Sep 12

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A bomb-sniffing dog has detected the presence of some sort of explosives inside the vehicle of a man who walked into the Kansas City federal building and told authorities he was a terrorist.

Hope they skin him (wishful thinking, of course).
We had our own little terrorist caught 2 years ago with bomb making material in his condo.

He’s still got on trial. The little busurd.
