Bernardine Dohrn confronted on camera at ‘green’ conference in Washington, D.C.
Weather Underground terrorist group co-founder Bernardine Dohrn responded to allegations her husband, co-founder William Ayers, recalled her placing a pipe bomb outside a San Francisco Police Department building Feb. 16, 1970.
The shrapnel from the bomb’s explosion killed Sgt. Brian V. McDonnell. Another officer, Robert Fogarty, was wounded in the face and legs and was left partially blind.
“That is so preposterous,” stated Dohrn. “The police have been investigating that murder for 45 years. I had nothing to do with it. It’s still open, of course, it’s an unsolved murder. That’s tragic for his family,” she said.
Dohrn was responding to questions from Cliff Kincaid, president of America’s Survival Inc., who confronted her on camera last week at the Green Fest in Washington, D.C., where Dohrn and Ayers were keynote speakers.
Ex–FBI informer Larry Grathwohl alleges Ayers, a close associate for years with President Obama, told him that Dohrn personally placed the pipe bomb that caused the deadly explosion.
“Please, that is so stupid,” Dohrn told Kincaid before walking away from the camera.
WND reported Grathwohl last week used the Marxism in America conference in Washington, D.C., sponsored by Kincaid’s group, to call on Congress to set up a committee or task force to bring “terrorists” to justice – including those who may be in high and influential positions today.

“My greatest fear today is that the Department of Justice will protect these terrorists by blocking an attempt to bring them to justice,” Grathwohl said. “Consider that President Obama held his first fundraiser at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn when he was running for the state Senate in Illinois.
“Do you think there might be some resistance to placing these two people on trial for the murder of Brian McDonnell? These are President Obama’s friends. He and Bill served on a board and appeared at functions together.”
Grathwohl said a resolution would be for Congress to act.
“I urge the new Congress to create a committee or subcommittee to facilitate the efforts of law enforcement in bringing terrorists to justice. For example, a new House Internal Security Committee can assist in that regard. The Senate could consider reinstating a Senate Internal Security subcommittee. Such committees should also investigate the groups that represent a current danger to the internal security of this country,” he said.
WND previously reported on the links that appear to connect Ayers and Dohrn to far more violence than they might be comfortable recognizing.
WND reported last year when top law-enforcement officers in San Francisco signed a letter accusing Ayers and Dohrn of being directly behind the bombing. The Obama Justice Department at that time, however, told the officers not to comment on the case.
At that 2009 press conference, directed by Kincaid, the leaders of the San Francisco Police Officers’ Association made public a letter pointing a finger at Ayers and Dohrn that demanded those responsible for the bombing be brought to justice.
“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 officers stated in the letter.
The San Francisco Chronicle then reported the police-group members who signed the letter received calls from the Justice Department and a local police chief telling them to remain silent.
No one has been charged in the bombing. Ayers has denied involvement. In an interview with the New Yorker, he said, “We killed no one and hurt no one.”
