    McVeigh and the Anthrax guy committed two of the three most terrifying and deadly terrorist attacks on the United States

    Neither were Islamic terrorists

    And yet the Arabs killed 3000 people and destroyed several blocks of New York, ya that is comparable. You are aware that some people believe McVeigh had help from Islamic Terrorists?

    A quibble: the anthrax guy is not number three. Islamist terrorists have killed dozens of Americans in variouis attacks around the world.

    But, even if these two lone nutters had taken #2 and #3 places in the numbers-killed-at-one-time competition, so what?

    What follows from that?

    Is the implication that there must be hundreds of thousands of other lone maniacs out there, getting ready to bomb federal buildings or trigger anthrax attacks? So we are wasting our time fighting in Afghanistan and tracking Al Queda, when we should be going after New World Order-fearing militia fantasists, or mad scientists?

    That's only because the terrorists haven't been allowed to attack again, even though they have tried many times.

    Al qaeda is more sexy for the media to report on.

    The fact is, domestic rightwing terrorism is and has been a significant an ongoing threat, that is rarely reported. That recent attack on that pro-gay, Liberal Unitarian Church in Tennesee fits the definition of a rightwing terrorist act, but the media won't report it that way.
