Theodore Shulman was arrested by the FBI in February, and is charged with leaving threatening telephone messages for leaders of Operation Rescue, Life Legal Defense Foundation, and other. Shulman--who also managed a web site, entitled Operation Counterstrike--has left hundreds of threatening email messages on various pro-life web sites.
