    No matter how much bovine scat the PC crowd throws out it seems a lot of Americans see this event for what it is.....
    1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    I see it as an act of terror based on what we are now learning. Specifically, the emails and contacts that were identified. Without this additional information, I would view it as a horrific criminal event. Much like the deranged/evil individuals that shoot up their former place of employment, McDonalds, Post Office, or what have you.

    Done; definitely an act of terror and a perfect justification to go hunt down the cleric that inspired this scumbag and put a bullet in the brainpan....

    Definitely an act of terror.

    If anyone has not seen the Ralph Peters interview from a couple of days ago, look it up now.

    I found it on LiveLeak.com - Redefining the Media and posted it on Conservative Stronghold - Powered by vBulletin, the sister site to DC.com also run by Bumper.

    Well... President Obama... you ticked off and told most of the intelligence forces that you would not support them, you would criminalize what they do, and would hang them out to dry......

    You put the FBI in charge of handling "investigations" .... as if it were a criminal enterprise. They didn't pass the test, when this guy was emailing Al Qaeda and the Inman in Yemen, did they.

    I think it all just failed the smell test............

    An act of terror is a horrific crime. Terrorism is a crime.
    Further a horrific crime is an act of terror. Criminals whos acts are horrific do so most often by and for purpose of instilling terror.

    They are one in the same.

    To have such a poll is stupid.
    But then it does and has gained Fox hit points for folks going there to 'vote', about nothing.

    I think so and a good lawyer (kinda like military intelligence) could make him fit the legal defintion.

    (3) the term “terrorist group” means any group, or which has significant subgroups which practice, international terrorism;
    (4) the terms “territory” and “territory of the country” mean the land, waters, and airspace of the country; and

    (A) that is used by a terrorist or terrorist organization—
    (i) to carry out terrorist activities, including training, fundraising, financing, and recruitment; or
    (ii) as a transit point; and
