Tafoya" To: Transtream Incorporated Subject: Re: Bomber request In-Reply-To: Message-ID: MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII Status: R Mr. Rice, I called the number you left; your residence. The woman who answered the telephone advised me you are experiencing difficulties with your phone at work. I am responding because I expect my colleagues on the: UNABOM Task Force working on the: UNABOM investigation, may be too busy to respond to your message any time soon. What the media has done with the name is, indeed, varied. I suspect the variations all refer to the same investigation. It should not be difficult to figure that out based on the associated text of the media account. However, the *official* FBI code name for the case & the task force is as noted above. I hope this helps. William L.
