FBI Scales Back Search for Anti-Abortion Terrorist

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has announced plans to scale back its search for anti-abortion terrorist Eric Robert Rudolph, suspected in the 1998 bombing of the Birmingham New Woman All Woman abortion clinic, the 1997 bombing of an Atlanta lesbian night club, and the 1996 Olympic Park bombing. Rudolph has been on the FBI’s Most Wanted list since May 1998, and has been the target of a four-year, $30 million search throughout the mountains of North Carolina, where he is believed to be hiding with his family. The Southeast Bomb Task Force, which has been handling the case, currently has 12 agents operating out of an annex to the FBI’s Atlanta field office and a full-time agent on duty in Andrews, NC, but this activity will be cut back and the case treated as a “fugitive case.”

Recently, the extremist network called the “Army of God” issued two letters supporting Rudolph and promising to continue using “lethal force” against abortion clinics and providers. The letters surfaced in Andrews, North Carolina at the Andrews Journal newspaper and at a local store.
