Kaczynski had a close relationship with his legal team — especially attorney Judy Clarke, to whom he wrote a letter trying to explain why he became the Unabomber. But he felt betrayed when his lawyers pursued a mental health defense and has distrusted the legal profession ever since.

Evidence of “winding down” the operation:

1. Most, if not all, of the kinds of pipes used in devices had been disposed of.

2. Steel rods for making plugs for pipes had been disposed of.

3. Of the type of copper tubing used in devices, all had been disposed of except a few short pieces that were in containers of copper scraps slated for disposal - I think. I did have a lot of ⅜” (outside diameter) copper tubing left, but it was of a thicker-walled type not used for any devices or even tests.

4. Most of the redwood I had was burned.

5. All the mahogany I had was burned.

6. The remains of the other types of wood used in devices had all been burned.

7. Except for one small piece that got left out, all my magnesium had been melted down with aluminum.

8. THe aluminum bar from which I cut pieces for building triggers had been melted down.

9. My supply of 1/32” steel sheet had been disposed of.

10. I had disposed of the very heavy copper wire (about ⅛” thick or more) that I used not for wiring but to make copper parts.

11. I may have disposed of all my steel wire of the type used not for ignition but to reinforce pipes or other casings.

12. I had probably disposed of all my brown wrapping paper.

13. I had probably disposed of, or at least melted the zinc off of, and placed with stuff to be dumped, all of the roofing nails of the type used to make pins to secure the plugs in detonating caps.

14. I had disposed of the ceramic cup, pieces of which I had pulverized to make filler material for mixing with epoxy.

15. I had disposed of all the limestone that I used to pulverize to make filler material for epoxy.

16. My tools had all been “cleaned up” by having their working surfaces filled so that they could not be identified by the marks they left on devices.

17. I had stuff loaded on a pack frame to be carried away for disposal.

18. I had a lot of material segregated from my other belongings and marked for disposal.

19. The list of potential targets was in the cut-down plastic jug with other papers that were being disposed of by being used as toilet paper and then burned.

20. I had disposed of all batteries that I had, except maybe one 9-volt battery and the batteries in my radios.

21. I may have disposed of my supply of taps (tools for threading screw-holes). If not, then I had them with other stuff that was slated for disposal.

22. The device in cabin was not “set” - I.e. it still had the safety pin in place, so it would not blow up FBI agents in cas of an arrest. I sort of felt sorry for the FBI agents - before I was arrested. After I was arrested . . .

23. The following home-made devices had been partly or wholly dismantled or destroyed:

(a) My home-made chemical balance. This was partly dismantled and the sheet-metal and mahogany parts had been disposed of. The remaining parts were in the cabin.

(b) Two devices for wrapping wire tightly around a cylindrical object were completely destroyed. These were sketched in my notebooks.

c) A mold for casting lead sheets was completely destroyed. I think this was sketched, and I know it was described verbally in my notebooks.

(d) A device for holding a small-diameter copper tube while it was being loaded with explosive, so as to provide protection in case of an accidental explosion. This was sketched in my notebooks.

(e) Two jigs for holding cylinders while they were being packed with explosives. These may have been sketched in my notebooks.

Regarding the items sketched or described in the notebooks: I don’t know whether or not the relevant parts of the notebooks were destroyed.
