    Actually it is reported he is a Jehovah Witness. Also family stands he has a mental illness component which is kind of obvious.

    White, described by law enforcement as a member of the Christian-based Jehovah's Witnesses religious movement, was carrying a bag during that attack.

    Inside, police found six Molotov cocktails -- here in the guise of half-pint jars filled with gasoline and set with cloth wicks.

    A search of White's car parked near the airport uncovered smoke bombs and several canisters, including an oxygen tank.

    "We don't know at this time what the intended purpose of those being in the trunk of the car actually are," he said.
    This guy sounds full tilt crazy but he was inflicting terror on the public so I guess he would be classified as a terrorist for those who need to classify attacks.

    Yeah, I was being ironic. Figured it sounded more like loose nutter than serious terrorist attempt.

    He must've snapped after all those years of ringing doorbells and peddling The Watchtower.

    If he was a Muslim this thread would have a whole lot more replies. Not to mention the multiple duplicates that would need to be merged.

    That's a pretty ridiculous interpretation of... well, anything really.

    Knife, wasp spray and BOMBS.. so yes it was a terror attempt.

    As I understand it, the "bombs" were left in a bag and it really does not matter what you think was attempted. What matters is that he was stopped before any serious harm to others was accomplished - the federal TSA nannies were saved by the local police.
