    Accidental? Not far from Fort Hood? CNN seems to have made it a mere sidenote that the FBI is housed in this complex, which doesn't seem such a sidenote to me.

    Terrorist attack?
    Paranoia will destroy ya'. Fact is, at this time, there are no facts surrounding the crash, other than it was a crash. Let's wait for more information to come in before speculating on why it happened.

    I'm with you. But tell me that's not the first thing you thought of.

    It is. But then, after a few seconds, reason took over.

    Fox News reports the NTSB says the pilot set his own house ablaze then piloted the plane into the office building which also houses the IRS office.

    Small single engine planes are not going to inflict serious damage, and therefore make lousy weapons for terrorism. Plus, a random FBI field office is a bizarre target.

    Barring further information, it's not terrorism. Dude crashed. It happens.

    IF that's the case, then it's a spectacular suicide.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Indeed. FNC also reports the plane was a Cherokee 140. Here's a pic of a 1972 Cherokee 140.
