Bill Ayers: people murdered by the Weather Underground

Accuracy in Media's Cliff Kincaid's letter to the Chicago Tribune to clarify some of those Weather Underground bombs did indeed kill folks. HT CDO
“Liam Ford and Mark Jacob:

“You state in your ‘Questions and Answers About Bill Ayers,’ April 24, page 4, that ‘The only people known to be killed or hurt by Weather Underground bombs were bombers themselves.’

“We ask for a correction of this false statement.

“The FBI report on the Weather Underground states, under the title of ‘WUO Bombings and Attempted Bombings,’ that on February 16, 1970, ‘A bomb detonated at the Golden Gate Park Branch of the San Francisco Police Department killing one officer and injuring a number of other policemen.’

“The Society of Former Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation authored a 1979 pamphlet on the WUO that reported, ‘On October 18, 1974, Larry Grathwohl, a former member of the WUO, testified before a US Senate Subcommittee that Bill Ayers, a WUO leader, had told him that Bernardine Dohrn, another WUO leader, had to plan, develop and carry out the bombing of the police station in San Francisco. Ayers told Grathwohl the bomb was placed on the window ledge and he described the bomb that was used to the extent of saying what kind of shrapnel was used in it.’

“Please tell us when and how you intend to correct the record so that we can inform our readers and members.

“Cliff Kincaid, editor, Accuracy in Media.”
