FBI Raids Offices of Obama's Chief Technology Officer
Update: An Official (Not the CTO) Arrested in Bribery Sting

Pretty much that's all there is for the moment. No reason offered as to why.

Somewhat related -- Obama decided to appoint Tony Ward, John "American Taliban" Lindh's zealous lawyer, to the Justice Department's Civil Rights division.

And also related: the San Francisco Police Union accuses Bill Ayers and Bernie Dorhn of direct involvement with the police station bombing that killed St. Brian McDonnell.

On Feb. 16, 1970, a bomb placed on a window ledge of Park Station killed Sgt. Brian McDonnell and injured eight other officers, the Chronicle reported.

The union said it had not been in contact with investigators nor did it have new evidence, but it cited Larry Grathwohl, who works with the conservative organization America’s Survival of Maryland and claims that he infiltrated Weather Underground as an FBI informant and heard Ayers confess, the Chronicle reported.

“There are irrefutable and compelling reasons to believe that Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn … are largely responsible for the bombing of Park Police Station,” the Feb. 24 letter reads, according to the Chronicle.

This is old evidence, and not very strong evidence; the Politico and CNN wouldn't even report that Bill Ayers had "confessed" to babysitting Obama's kids based on one person's memory of it.

Still. What a crew.

Busted: Yusuf Acar arrested. It's a bribery case, apparently.

An official in the D.C. government's office of the chief technology officer has been arrested in a federal bribery sting, according to law enforcement sources.

Yusuf Acar, 40, was taken into custody this morning by FBI agents at his home in Northwest Washington, the sources said. The nature of the charges could not be determined. Channing Phillips, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, declined to comment on the arrest, saying the case "is under seal."

Acar serves as an information systems security officer in the D.C. government. He worked for Vivek Kundra, the District's chief technology officer. Kundra recently left D.C. government to become President Obama's federal chief information officer.
