Olympic Bomber
Eric Robert Rudolph (born September 19, 1966), also known as the Olympic Park Bomber, is responsible for a series of anti-abortion and anti-gay-motivated bombings across the southern United States between 1996 and 1998, which killed two people and injured 111 others. The Federal Bureau of Investigation considers him a terrorist.
As a teenager Rudolph was taken by his mother to a Church of Israel compound in 1984; it is connected to the Christian Identity movement, a militant, racist and anti-Semitic organization that believes whites are God's chosen people. He has confirmed religious motivation, but denied racial motivation for his crimes.
He spent five years on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list until he was caught in 2003. In 2005, as part of a plea bargain, Rudolph pleaded guilty to numerous federal and state homicide charges and accepted four consecutive life sentences in exchange for avoiding a trial and a potential death sentence. He remains incarcerated at the ADX Florence supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.

Tom In Paine: On Boston Marathon, news media recalls '96 Olympic bombing but not Louis Freeh's smear of Richard Jewell.
Recently, the news media has started making comparisons between the Boston marathon bombing and the bombing in Centennial Park in Atlanta during the 1996 Olympics and how long the Olympic bombing investigation took until Eric Rudolph was arrested years later for bombing two abortion clinics and confessed to being the Olympic Bomber. Tom Fuentes who was an assistant FBI commander at the time in Atlanta when the bombing took place said on CNN, it took weeks and months to simply identify the roofers nails that were used in the bomb much less have a suspect.

Olympic bomber a follower of devout Imam Anjem Choudhary - Atlas Shrugs
The ginger-headed chap in The Telegraph is one of Anjem Choudhary's devout followers; this hasn't been mentioned in the media. An eagle-eyed UK Atlas reader pointed it out. 18-year-old as Jamal ud-Din is understood to be one of the arrested men. Here is the jihadist putting up Sharia Zoning stickers in East London -- which Anjem Choudhary planned..... London 2012 Olympics: Muslim converts held over 'Games plot' Telegraph Two Muslim converts have been arrested in East London on suspicion of plotting an attack against the London 2012 Olympic Games canoeing venue. 18-year-old as Jamal ud-Din is understood to be one of the arrested men. (They are all so devilishly handsome, ever notice that?) By Duncan Gardham and Andrew Hough Sources told The Daily Telegraph that the arrests were based on a tip-off after men were seen behaving suspiciously close to the venue in Waltham Abbey, Hertfordshire on Monday. Hertfordshire police officers began combing the banks after three men were seen in a dinghy on the River Lea. The two men, aged 18 and 32, were arrested at separate residential addresses in east London, by officers from the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Command, at 7am on Thursday. They were detained under the Terrorism Act 2000 on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism and held at a central London police station. Officers were last night searching two addresses in East London. A friend of the arrested men named the 18-year-old as Jamal ud-Din and said the older man was someone he knew only as “Zakariya.” Mizanur Rahman, 29, said the arrests “might have had something to do with the fact that they recently went canoeing” on the River Lea, a branch of which runs through the Olympic site in east London. “It’s just people trying to get into the Olympic spirit,” he told the Associated Press but added he believed the authorities would try “painting it as jihad training.” Must be a new Olympic sport, jihadis bombing.
