    know if there is an answer to. Especially in the world of non-state sponsored wars. I see the point you are making - which I would word by asking - were American revolutionaries terrorists or mentally ill? Are US drone operators that know they are going to hit civilians in one of those camps? In my mind, those are nearly impossible webs to untangle.

    However, the thing I asked about each person on this list - was did they commit a horrific act? Yes. Did they do it to make a statement? Yes. Was it often politically motivated? Yes.

    So even if they were mentally ill, they still committed an act in order to induce terror.
