  •  they even call themselves terrorists (6+ / 0-)

    from a snippet in the article:

    "I am a terrorist," Waagner declared on the Army of God’s Web site. Boasting that God "freed me to make war on his enemy," he claimed he knew where 42 Planned Parenthood workers lived. "It doesn’t matter to me if you’re a nurse, receptionist, bookkeeper, or janitor, if you work for the murderous abortionist, I’m going to kill you."

    That’s textbook terrorism, defined by the USA Patriot Act as dangerous criminal acts that "appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population" or "to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion."

    You'd think that confession would save the NSA, FBI, CIA and other law enforcement agencies the trouble of building a strong legal case. Guess they have more important things to do, like check out the evil libruls on dKos.

      So, people who are earning an honest, LEGAL living have to watch their backs because some idiot believes God has empowered him to kill?

      Interesting, since the very first commandment is "Thou shall not kill."

      in Waagner's ability to wage sustained warfare on clinics, despite being in prison for years at a time, as evidence of a criminal conspiracy to commit the things he has.

      Presuming of course that they ever meant to stop terrorism, by "waging war" on it.
