- An FBI Veteran on What Discovery’s ‘Manhunter: Unabomber’ Gets Wrong (Guest Blog)

[...] the Discovery Channel series “Manhunt Unabomber” disrespects achievements of the “Unabom” investigation by creating a predominantly fictionalized story.The eight-part, Tuesday night series on the Unambomber that began August 1, comes up considerably short on the truth when it comes to a minor player on the Unabom Task Force (UTF) — Jim Fitzgerald, an FBI profiler and forensic linguist — who is portrayed in the series as a key investigator who broke the case and was involved in key aspects.The Unabom (FBI shorthand for University and Airline Bomber) investigation began in 1978 with the first bomb and continued until Kaczynski was identified, arrested and prosecuted in 1998.All kinds of investigative techniques were utilized, huge data bases were built and countless leads were followed only to what seemed to be dead ends.[...] the big break came when the Unabomber claimed that he would discontinue his use of bombings to kill if his 35,000-word manifesto was printed in a major newspaper.A handful of people — Attorney General Janet Reno, FBI Director Louie Freeh, the San Francisco special agent in charge, Jim Freeman, the Assistant SAC Terry Turchie and Kathy Puckett, an FBI agent and a member of the UTF with a psychology background — persuaded the very reluctant editors of the New York Times and Washington Post to publish the manifesto.The search found: bomb-making materials; voluminous incriminating documents including an original draft of the manifesto and a coded diary confessing to all of the bombings; the typewriter used to type the manifesto and a fully constructed bomb ready to be sent — the bomb was designed as an anti-personal bomb, despite Ted’s promise not to kill.After Ted’s arrest, Postal Inspector Paul Wilhelmus and FBI agent Max Noel interviewed the suspect.[...] he had no part in the search nor the interview.
