AUSTIN (KXAN) - The University of Texas is evacuating all of its buildings due to threats on campus after a caller claiming to be with al-Qaida said he placed bombs all over campus that would go off around 10 a.m. -- which has since passed.
"Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible," read a message posted at 9:53 a.m. on the campus' emergency alert website. "More information to come."
UT Director of Communications Rhonda Weldon said the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a male with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus.
He said he was with al-Qaida and that these bombs would go off in 90 minutes.
President Williams Powers has been notified, and officials are now evacuating all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution.
North Dakota State University is also being evacuated for the same reason.A trojan horse hides its intent and Obama hasnít we hid our understanding.

DEVELOPING: North Dakota State University officials are ordering the campus evacuated after receiving a bomb threat.
NDSU issued a statement shortly before 10 a.m. Friday telling all employees and students to leave campus within a half-hour because of a bomb threat. No other details were given.
More than 14,000 students are enrolled at NDSU.

If we had a real media, Obama would be laughed out of the White House.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Real superheroes don't wear capes. They wear dog tags.

For what it's worth, al Queda generally doesn't call in warnings ahead of their attacks. Some students wanted to start their weekend early. If that's the case, I hope they are caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
