Columbia Prof Bomber

Bomb-making factory found in Brooklyn apartment of Columbia Professor

Professor of what, you might ask?  A Professor of Medical Anthropology which involves studying how diseases spread through populations. 

Police stumbled upon a bomb-making factory Sunday in the home of a Columbia professor who specializes in the spread of infectious disease - and are investigating whether he and his roommate have terror ties.

Cops evacuated the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood around the Remsen St. home of Michael Clatts, a medical anthropologist, after finding seven pipe bombs fitted with fuses in his flat, police sources said

Columbia is denying that the man has any association with the school and he is apparently out of the country or otherwise missing.
