    No, he did not. And according to military planner (USN) boyfriend, attacks on military populations AT ANY TIME, whether in a state of readiness or not, are considered fair game during wartime. NOT terror attacks.

    Again, killing people for religious reasons does not equal terrorism.

    LOL - you're too funny - but spot on.

    You remind me of an old quote:

    In my opinion, Hassan should be viewed as a new kind of terrorist cell. I would call him a "latent, independent cell".

    The strategy of the Jihadist network is to radicalize these lone-wolf types so that they'll act independently of the command structure; this would serve not only to increase the randomness and number of terrorist attacks but to further decentralize the Jihadist network. Decentralization makes it that much more difficult to identify, locate, and target the enemy.

    Very cunning.

    What country did Hassan represent and is the United States military at war with that country?

    Re: Obama Suggests Still Possible Hasan May Have Cracked Under Stress

    I agree that the simple association of Islam is not sufficient to classify Hassan as a terrorist. I do believe, however, that his association with the Jihadist network in conjunction with his avowed radicalism is enough to label him as such.

    Just because he didnít receive explicit marching orders from AQ doesnít mean he canít be a terrorist cell. Perhaps the Jihadists wants to further decentralize their network by encouraging lone-wolf types to act independently of their command structure; this would increase the randomness and frequency of attacks on our soil. Iím not sure why some people find this idea so objectionable or far-fetched.

    So are street gangs in New York charged with terrorism? Because they do the same thing. Again, you are grasping at straws here.
