    Alright RA.....like in the other thread we were in. What about this part of the FBI definition?

    The FBI borrows the Code of Federal Regulations definition that defines terrorism this way: "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives" [source: Department of Justice].....snip~

    According to the FBI.....ANY segment of the government and or civilian population. So why shouldn't the grounds be Pressed for the issue to be declared an act of terrorism.

    I would not be suprised if the US declares those killed and injured in this attack wounded and killed in action. After the courts-martial. I could agree with that, but at this time it truly is a workplace violence situation.

    Heya Mak. Either way he should be Labeled an Enemy Combatant.....despite him being a US Citizen. Even those in uniform would be less off guard while on post. So this guy knew what he was doing.

    Couple of items left out of this conversation:

    First, the DoD (Obama admin) classified this as *workplace violence*

    Secondly, He was shouting "Allah Akbar" (God is Great) as he was committing these acts. That would be religious (Radical Jihadist) in nature, not political.

    Yesterday, a couple of young men hacked to death a soldier near a military barracks in England then explained why they did it on tape.

    Was this not terrorism as it was described by David Cameron?

    Same reason the Admin. didn't want Benghazi classified as terrorism.

    It doesn't fit the agenda.

    He cant be called an enemy combatant, he is one of us, no matter how much we hate it. To be an enemy combatant he would have had to steal the uniform or lie to get in to trick the military with the intent of causing harm. Unfortunately the uniform has been his for years. I dont know, just guessing but a Major probably has 15+ years so it was years in the making. I also, from what I had read, believe he was radicalized at some later point, so he might have enlisted and sworn in with good intentions.

    One thing we know for sure is, it was workplace violence. It might be changed to something else later, but one thing it is and will always be, is work place violence. The Major was at work and it was violent.

    Reminds me of John Heilemann on Morning Joe this morning.
    He was so desperate to defend Obama in the IRS scandal he was flailing and frantically saying silly things too.
