"Unabomber" Unhappy His Cabin Is Part Of News Museum Exhibit

Posted: Updated:

Ted Kaczynski, the convicted "Unabomber," is upset that his Montana cabin, where he was eventually captured, is part of a display at the Newseum.

In a handwritten letter to a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals, Kaczynski said he objected to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's loan of the 10-by-12-foot cabin as part of a large exhibition that looks at the FBI's first 100 years.

Kaczynski, who is imprisoned in a federal facility in Florence, Colo., said he learned of the cabin's use when he saw in an advertisement for the Newseum in The Washington Post. This is not the first time the bomber and the newspaper have intersected. In 1995 The Post published his 35,000-word manifesto in a special section and shared the cost with the New York Times. When Kaczynski's brother read the published manifesto, he realized the bomber might be his brother and told the FBI his identity and whereabouts.
