Brett Kimberlin admitted to sabotage of military equipment

Ace of Spades HQ reports:

Another job he was assigned to in prison was doing quality control for military equipment. Rather than ensuring that equipment used by the men and women of the armed forces were in proper working order, Brett Kimberlin gave the equipment a positive rating — and then cut the wires himself.

This is not an allegation; this is an amusing anecdote he enjoys bragging about. From Citizen K, page 184, directly quoting Kimberlin from the many conversations the author had with him in preparing the book:

“I’d run the cables through quality control,” [Kimberlin] said. “I’d check them. I’d sign off on them. And then I’d cut some of the damn wires.”

Bryan Preston points to a Wikipedia page on Kimberlin’s Speedway Bombings. References on that page point to Indy Star articles.

From an article:

Meanwhile at a different store, a Westside print shop, the proprietor was becoming suspicious of customer who wanted to reproduce military drivers licenses. The shop owner called the U.S. Army and when the customer came back, on Sept. 20, an Army investigator was there too. The customer was wearing a security guard’s uniform with Department of Defense insignia. It was Brett Kimberlin.

This gave the bombing investigators a break because Kimberlin had violated federal law by wearing the DoD insigina. They obtained a search warrant to inspect the car he’d driven to the print shop. In the trunk they found timers just like the ones used for the bombs, and they found chemical traces of Tovex, the explosive used in the bombs.

More backstory from Michelle Malkin:

Free speech is under fire. Online thugs are targeting bloggers (mostly conservative, but not exclusively) who have dared to expose a convicted bomber, a man who is now a perjuring vexatious litigant enjoying a comfy life as a liberally subsidized social-justice operative. Where do your elected representatives stand on this threat to our founding principles?

The ACLJ weighs in:

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which focuses on constitutional law, announced today it is providing legal representation to a top conservative blogger and his organization that represents hundreds of bloggers who are facing threats and intimidation tactics by those opposed to their viewpoint.

UPDATE
Patterico had more on this May 19th:

Today’s quote is about how our friend the convicted bomber and perjurer sabotaged parts destined for military aircraft and tanks:

At Oxford [a federal prison in Wisconsin] he was assigned as a quality-control clerk at a prison factory that manufactured cables for military aircraft and tanks.
