Animal rights activist on FBI's 'Most Wanted Terrorists' list

Story Highlights

*FBI is searching for animal rights activist Daniel Andreas San Diego

*Authorities allege San Diego bombed two facilities in California

*Computer network specialist sports several elaborate tattoos

Reports have placed animal rights activist in Costa Rica, rural southern Virginia
By Terry Frieden
CNN Justice Department Producer
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The FBI for the first time has placed an animal rights activist on the bureau's "Most Wanted Terrorists" list.

The FBI announced Tuesday the addition of Daniel Andreas San Diego to the list, hoping a burst of international publicity associated with the move will help investigators find him after six years on the run.

San Diego, 31, may appear to be out of place on a terrorist list with familiar names like al Qaeda's Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Adam Yahiye Gadahn. The "strict vegan," according to the FBI, is charged with bombing two corporate offices in California in 2003. The blasts caused extensive property damage but no deaths.

Vegans eat no meat or any other food containing animal products.

Authorities allege San Diego bombed facilities in Emeryville and Pleasanton, California, because he believed the Chiron and Shaklee Corporations had ties to animal-testing labs.

The sophisticated homemade bombs had ammonium nitrate brand explosives and relied on "kitchen timer style mechanical timer devices," according to an FBI affidavit.

After both bombings, e-mails from a group called "The Revolutionary Cells-Liberation Brigade" claimed responsibility for the acts.

Photographs of San Diego, who grew up in suburban San Francisco, California, show a well-groomed, bespectacled man.

But the computer network specialist also sports several elaborate tattoos. According to an artist's rendering of the body art, San Diego has one in the center of his chest of a burning hillside and the words "It only takes a spark" in a typewriter-style font.

An abdominal tattoo shows burning and collapsing buildings, while his back features a leafless tree rising from a road above buildings that are burning but still standing, the FBI says.

Last year, agents pursued reports that San Diego was hiding in Costa Rica. They also received a report he was spotted in rural southern Virginia.

Yes, the militant wing of a political movement that consciously avoids human casualties (it's in the ELF and ALF manifestos that they disavow serious injury or killing of humans) is the most dangerous threat to 'merica.


It's common sense that under U.S. law, these are crimes with consequences, but it's beyond stupid to put this in the same category with flying airplanes into occupied buildings.

I think it would be interesting to see your reactions had 'vegan' (wtf does his fucking eating regime have to do with this article and his bullshit political ideologies?) and 'animal rights activist' been replaced with 'pro lifer' and 'abortion clinic bomber'.


I bet you'd all be singing a different tune.

I doubt it. I'm sure the general consesus would be that he committed crimes and should be punished as such to the full extent of the law, but not considered on the same level as bin Laden as he avoiding killing or harming anyone. About the same as the vegan.

Yeah. If he was killing people it would be more logical to say that. Abortion clinic bombers kill people. If the guy starts killing people, then you've got a more serious crime on your hands.

You mean if the clinic bomber made sure there were no people harmed? Has that ever happened?

These people are idiots. Plain and simple. Blowing things up does not change anything. I don't care if he is on the FBI's most wanted list or if he is on Cracked's top ten idiots list.. either way these people are out of their fucking minds.

"Oh, he such a nice animal rights bomber... he made sure no one got hurt! How lovely!" Pfft... Welcome to Warp Zone.

Look. It's called direct action for a reason. Say you want to address what one specific group or business is doing. If one blows up their building, they have a hard time doing what they were doing before.

Or they collect an insurance settlement that is possibly larger than the company/ building is worth...?

Not knocking direct action, but when you think about it...

Wait, so you're saying that if your building burns down, it's not a hindrance on your ability to perform your job and doesn't cost you anything?












Wow, that's stupid.
