Threatening caller spurs UT evacuation

Caller claimed to be with al-Qaida, planted bombs

AUSTIN (KXAN) - 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.

President Williams Powers has been notified, and officials are now evacuating all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution.

KXAN News is getting reports that North Dakota State University has also received a bomb threat prompting an evacuation Friday morning. The university released the following alert at 9:49 a.m.

"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

    Muslims are all potential terrorists. They shouldn't even be allowed to live here, posing that kind of threat.

    Meanwhile, radical Muslims storm the German embassy in Sudan and set fire on the premises. The reason was not a silly movie trailer, but peaceful protests in Munich against the planned construction of a center for Islamic studies.

    This planned indoctrination center is meant to churn out both future Imams and Islamic teachers who will lead religious education classes at German public schools. Germans who don't want their taxes to pay for the indoctrination of their children by Islamists are no longer supposed to make their voices heard, lest Muslims respond with terror attacks to show us just how peaceful and freedom-loving their religious ideology is.

    It's time to wake up and realize what is going on all over Western Europe, and what will happen if this forced Islamization continues. The same thing is bound to happen in the U.S. unless you guys drastically change your course and stop making concessions to an anti-democratic, totalitarian and hateful ideology.

    What? Should Obama race to these universties to diffuse bombs?

    Since when is Al Queda announcing when and where it has bombs? Their mode of operation certainly has changed. I did my post grad work in Austin at UT. It's still got that laid back, hippie vibe going. Not exactly a place that would attract AlQueda.

    His underlings in the WH and the media are working overtime to distance Obama from these murders in Libya.

    They want us to believe this is all being caused by an obscure anti-Muslim film on YouTube? Never mind that BHO claimed 26 different times in his convention speech that he killed OBL. Or his drone attacks in Muslim countries don't matter to the Muslims?

    Are we impressed with Obama foreign policy and national security yet?
