Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, December 13, 2018

Dozens of institutions across the country received email threats Thursday afternoon, prompting evacuations and sweeps of buildings. At this time it unclear if the threats -- which have been received at locations throughout San Francisco, at the University of Washington in Seattle, and at Penn State University in Pennsylvania, among other places -- are connected. The FBI said it is aware of the threats and is working with law enforcement to provide assistance. "As always, we encourage the public to remain vigilant and to promptly report suspicious activities which could represent a threat to public safety," the FBI said. In Seattle, UW noted in a campus-wide alert that the FBI had "advised that the email is not a credible threat." The university concluded sweeps of possibly affected buildings.

North Florida is receiving them as well. I know of one hospital and one Veterans home being evacuated due to bomb threats.

@ Comrade Gracie, if I were the FBI the first place I'd look would be YOUR computer and phone!
