Former FBI Agent Max Noel on Cuomo's Commutation of the Sentence of Weather Underground Terrorist David Gilbert
David Gilbert was an Extreme radical Weather Underground member. His fingerprints were found by my partners and me in the Weather Underground Bomb Factory at 1038 A Pine Street in San Francisco on April 14, 1971, along with many other Weather Underground members. This "safe house" was used to launch numerous attacks on the Bay Area Police Departments and Officers. In addition to a large block of C-4 plastic explosive, radical communist, black separatist literature was found. An unexploded bomb found in the San Francisco Hall of Justice was claimed by the WUO and tools found in the apartment were forensically linked to the construction of that bomb. The escape from custody of Timothy Leary was plotted and carried out from that apartment. Gilbert and his partner Kathy Boudin were two of the most radical members of the WUO. They committed crimes against innocent Security officers and Policemen. I've never heard an apology from either. They are among the most despicable WUO members and should never be forgiven.
Update: the Pine Street apartment (called the Tribe House by Mark Rudd in his book, "Underground-My life in the SDS and Weather Underground" ) was where the bombing of the Marin County Courthouse was planned in retribution for the killing of Jonathan Jackson (George Jackson's brother) by the police in a botched attempt to free George Jackson during his trial. The presiding Judge was taken hostage and he was also killed in the shootout with police.
