Unabomber Objects To Newseum’s Displaying His Cabin


Unabomber Ted Kaczynski is upset that his Montana cabin is part of a display at the Washington, D.C.,-based Newseum. In a letter to 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, reports the Washington Post. The story was first reported by thesmokinggun.com. Kaczynski imprisoned in Florence, Co.

The Newseum will not change the exhibit “G-Men and Journalists: Top News Stories of the FBI’s First Century.” “The cabin is one of 200 artifacts that were offered to us through the FBI. The Unabomber is an interesting case of the combative, sometimes cooperative relationship of the press with the FBI,” said the Newseum’s Susan Bennett. “The cabin had a definite media hook. Since the artifact was provided by the FBI and we think it is a dramatic way of retelling the story to visitors, we intend to keep it as part of the exhibit.”
