    Foreign Student bomb/Anthrax Threat IN Mo. University

    by By The Associated Press
    Print StoryEmail StoryROLLA, Mo. -- A distraught graduate student claiming to have a bomb and anthrax sparked a scare early today that shut down the University of Missouri-Rolla for several hours, officials said.
    Nearly two dozen people, including a faculty member and eight other students, were quarantined after a white, powdery substance was found.

    School officials said "possible bomb materials'' were also found when the man was taken into custody. Officials described him as a graduate student who was apparently depressed and upset about his grades.

    The incident started around 2:30 a.m. in a civil engineering building on campus.

    Acting Police Chief Mark Kearse said that when police arrived, the student held up a bag and said: "This is a bomb.'' He was armed with a knife and also claimed to have anthrax, Kearse said.

    Police used a stun gun to subdue him. They also found a four-page note in which the student threatened to destroy the building, Kearse said.

    "If we had to make an assessment right now, our assessment is that this is going to be a bogus or phony situation,'' said Acting Police Chief Mark Kearse.

    Still, a Fort Leonard Wood Explosive Operations Division team was investigating the possibility that a bomb could be in the building, and members of the Missouri National Guard were called to campus. A National Guard team took samples to determine if the substance was hazardous, said Lt. Col. David Boyle of the 7th Civil Support Team.

    Officials said no one who had been exposed to the substance had shown any symptoms.

    "If it was anthrax they would have been displaying some symptoms,'' said Ray Massey, ambulance director at Phelps County Regional Medical Center.

    The identity and nationality of the student were not released, though school spokesman Lance Feyh said he was an international student. The man was decontaminated and taken to a hospital before being taken to a holding facility at the Rolla Police Department, Kearse said.

    Mayor William Jenks and Kearse said the student had been distraught over his grades, which may have led to the incident. Jenks said the student "had problems and was depressed.''

    The 5,850-student technological research and engineering school campus in south-central Missouri was shut down during the incident and classes were canceled for the day while officers investigated.

    "We have no hard evidence that there's anything wrong in the building but we simply can't take a chance,'' Jenks said. "We're taking a very cautious approach.''

    Those exposed to the powder included a faculty member in whose lab the graduate student was found and eight students working nearby, said campus spokeswoman Mary Helen Stoltz. The remaining people exposed to the powder included emergency personnel who responded to the scene, she said. It wasn't yet clear what the substance was.

    Stoltz reiterated Kearse's belief that the student was "using the threat of terror to get attention.''

    "We believe the situation is completely under control,'' she said. "For now everybody's safe.''

    Today’s Letter: A Reader Says That While One International Student Made A Bomb Threat, A Million International Students Are A Time Bomb
    From: Greg Sullivan in Missouri

    According to the AP, "A distraught graduate student claiming to have a bomb and anthrax sparked a scare early Tuesday that shut down the University of Missouri-Rolla for several hours, officials said." [Student claiming to have bomb, anthrax causes campus shutdown By The Associated Press]

    The school refused to give the name or nationality of the student, but did acknowledge that he was "international."

    UMR is the premier engineering school in the state. [VDARE.com note: one of the few schools with a minor in blowing things up.]

    For nothing more noble than tuition revenue, our institutes of higher learning are thrilled for the opportunity to train "internationals" as engineers. Some will eventually return home to build a better mousetrap. To find better ways to wage war against the infidel.

    Let this serve as a wake-up call. Exporting knowledge to import terror is the formula for America's demise.

    Welcome to America. Now go home - and pay us back for the wasted space in the university system on your way out too.

    He was probably from Saudi Arabia or some middle eastern country. Just a guess.

    Oh, but foreigners are all sweetness and light - hadn't you heard?

    If you ask me, inviting all these "international" students into our universities is like holding lockpicking classes in our garages for local street gangs.
