Bomber showed no remorse in confession video, lawmaker says
The Austin bomber showed no remorse in a 25-minute "matter-of-fact" confession video that he recorded hours before he blew himself up, Texas Rep. Michael McCaul said.
Bombings weren't labeled 'terrorism.' Here's why

Opinion: It's too early to say whether 'troubled young man' is the wrong term
The Austin, Texas, serial bomber, 23-year-old Mark Anthony Conditt, was, according to Austin Police Chief Brian Manley, a "very troubled young man."
