WASHINGTON, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- Convicted "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski says he objects to the FBI allowing a Washington museum to display his former cabin as part of an exhibit.

Kaczynski issued a handwritten letter to a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Sacramento, Calif., objecting to the display of his former Montana cabin at the Newseum, where it is being displayed as part of an exhibit examining the FBI's first 100 years and its relations with the press, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

In the letter, first published Tuesday by Thesmokinggun.com, Kaczynski writes from his Colorado federal prison cell that he learned of the display from a Newseum advertisement in The Washington Post.

"Since the advertisement states that the cabin is 'FROM FBI VAULT,' it is clear that the government is responsible for the public exhibition of the cabin. This has obvious relevance to the victims' objection to publicity connected with the Unabom case," he wrote in the letter.

Kaczynski was convicted of killing three people and injuring 23 others from 1978 to 1995 with his homemade bombs.
