San Francisco Police Sgt. Brian V. McDonnell was killed by shrapnel from an anti-personnel bomb built and planted by Bill Ayers' wife, Bernardine Dohrn, according to an FBI report
A former undercover FBI informant who once spied on 1970s anti-war radicals who bombed government offices is calling on Congress to set up a committee or task force to bring "terrorists" – including those who may be in high and influential positions today – to justice.
The request comes from Larry Grathwohl, whose book "Bringing Down America – An FBI Informer with the Weathermen" alleges Bill Ayers, a friend of President Obama, told Grathwohl that Bernardine Dohrn, who later became Ayers' wife, placed a pipe bomb outside a San Francisco Police Department building Feb. 16, 1970.
The shrapnel from the anti-personnel bomb's explosion killed Sgt. Brian V. McDonnell. Another officer, Robert Fogarty, was wounded in the face and legs and left partially blind.
Grathwohl's plan was outlined in remarks prepared for the Marxism in America conference sponsored yesterday by America's Survival in Washington.

Grathwohl also appears in a series of videos to explain his concerns over the still-open case along with Cliff Kincaid, president of America's Survival, and Max Noel, a former FBI agent and member of the Weatherman Task Force.
