    Is any attack a terrorist attack? That seems to be the current definition for Republicans. Unless it involves someone bombing an abortion clinic.

    I think this is a carry-over from the Bush fear machine - everyone is a terrorist. But by labeling everyone a terrorist, we lose sight of who the terrorists really are. And we know Republicans are all about labeling people and events.

    Was McVeigh a terrorist? Did he commit a terroristic attack? What about the guy who flew his plane into the IRS building in Austin - was he a terrorist?

    This is the biggest problem with Republican's current line of attack about Benghazi - most Americans don't really care what label is applied to those who attacked the consulate. They want them brought to justice and measures taken to make sure it does not happen again.
