  •  Yeah, I was going back & forth on classifying (0+ / 0-)

    the DC sniper incident as "terrorism". It didn't appear the shooter was trying to make a political statement or attack the government (like, say the bombers in Oklahoma City did). But, it also put a major metropolitan area into a state of fear about random, senseless violence. I suppose, though, it's the same as some of the people who have randomly shot cars off of overpasses in several other cities. It's not really a terrorist attack - it's simply acts of a violent crazy person with no political motive.

    Interesting how the police and media have characterized it as terrorism. I wonder it has anything to do with the fact that the main shooter was black and called himself Mohammed...

    I remember a time when the American President was the leader of the free world. ****** Repeat after me: "Neoconservatism has failed America."
