    I wasn't talking about their methods, jst the reasoning they had/have for doing what they do. It's not a lack of assimilation as much as it is a rejection.

    Here's another would be American terrorist who was charged. American terrorists who reject American identity seem to be a phenomenon much larger than anyone here expected.

    "A Baltimore construction worker was charged Wednesday with plotting to blow up a military recruiting station in Maryland after the FBI learned of his radical leanings on Facebook, joined his plot and supplied him with a fake car bomb that he tried to detonate, federal officials said.

    Antonio Martinez, 21, a U.S. citizen who recently converted to Islam and changed his name to Muhammad Hussain, declared on his Facebook page that he hates "Any 1 who opposes Allah." Those kinds of postings, brought to the FBI's attention, sparked an intensive investigation involving an undercover agent, a secret informant and a chilling plot to kill military personnel in the United States because they were killing Muslims overseas, according to an FBI affidavit filed Wednesday..."

    McVeigh murdered government employees in an act of revenge and can legitimately be called a mass murderer, but don;t think he intended to spread terror, and in fact he didn't. He was recognized for what he was.

    There is a difference between the greatest terror threat of the past and the greatest terror threat today. We live today.

    President Obama's National Director of Counterterrorism did not say that the KKK was the greatest terrorist threat to America. Mr. Leitner said that the American born and raised Anwar al Awlaki was the greatest terrorist threat to America today.

    Our biggest threat is our own government and the corporate lobbyists they serve.

    McVeigh wanted to end interventionist US military policies and "authoritariansim".

    FOXNews.com - McVeigh's Apr. 26 Letter to Fox News - U.S. & World

    While it was retliatory, he also sought to push his political agenda through fear as well.

    Well, that certainly sounds more like a leftest argument rather than the supposed rightwing Christian nut that the liberals make him out to be in their arguments.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Actually, I'd say it's more libertarian, which would be right-wing. He didn't seem to be motivated by Christianity to my knowledge. Definitely no Christian motivation to be found in that letter. I think he might have been pretty non-religious, actually.

    I am just pointing out what it is that I have come up against in some replies to terrorism threads when McVeigh is brought up....Liberals seem to love to try and make him out to be right wing, when in fact the things I highlighted from your post is a left wing argument.
