    When is a "Terrorist" Not a "Terrorist"? When He's a White Texan.

    A BUZZFLASH COMMENTARY
    By Arthur Plum
    If someone flew an airplane into a building full of people to protest the Afghan war, it would be called a terrorist incident. However, when Mr. Joe Stack flew his plane into an IRS building and killed people, the news media calls it. “the accident,” and “the incident.” The local Texas prosecutor and even the White House claimed specifically that Mr. Stack was not a terrorist.

    But what should you call it when a man pens a manifesto proclaiming, “violence is the only answer,” then kills people because they work for the government? Mr. Stack’s wife apologized on the news to “everyone affected by the incident,” but was careful not to use the term “victim,” when referring to the people her husband murdered.

    Regardless of the media’s politically correct posturing, the simple fact is this: Joe Stack was a suicide bomber, a domestic terrorist. Even though his name was Joe, and not Mohammed, and even though he was protesting taxes, not Israeli foreign policy, Mr. Stack was, a murderer of the innocent.

    I think the TeaBaggers need to cool down the violent rhetoric.

    Read the note again, this guy was as leftist liberal as Obama, Biden and most of congress itself.

    This also wasn't an act of terrorism. There was no agenda to achieve, no use of terror to accomplish goals. Nothing.

    His agenda was a grab bag of all sorts of things. A lot of them were to the left of the current administration by quite a margin, but his rant about taxes was straight out of the far right play book. In short, he was an incoherent nutter, hardly a surprise given that he set fire to his house with his family inside and flew a plane into a building deliberately.

    It most certainly qualifies as domestic terrorism. And liberals don't fly planes into buildings. They have consciences. Something conservatives lack.

    Many conservatives have consciences. It's the Neo-Cons we have to worry about, they were born and bred heartless and soulless and the only thing that concerns them is power and wealth.

    You're confused. Liberals don't fly planes into buildings because they're frustrated with the system. Get a clue. And it was an act of domestic terrorism.

    And the architects of the Neo-Con movement were none other than Bill Krystol, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and Dick Cheney...and they began "moving" in the Reagan administration.
