Norway suspect borrowed from Unabomber's manifesto

DENVER (AP) — Parts of the manifesto written by the suspect in Norway's terrorist attack were taken almost word for word from the writings of "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski.

The passages copied by Anders Behring Breivik appear in the first few pages of Kaczynski's manifesto. Breivik changed a Kaczynski screed on leftism and what he considered to be leftists' "feelings of inferiority" — mainly by substituting the words "multiculturalism" or "cultural Marxism" for "leftism."

Breivik is accused of killing at least 93 people Friday by setting off an explosion in downtown Oslo and then gunning down campers on a nearby island. Kaczynski is in federal prison for mail bombs that killed three people.

Breivik did not cite Kaczynski, though he did for others whose writings he used.
