    Less than an hour ago a plane was flown into the FBI/IRS office in Austin. Witnesses say pilot deliberately flew into building. This was apparantly after he burned down his own house. Definitely not terrorism!

    Your thoughts?

    Sounds almost like a reverse profiling.
    His name is not arabic...so it "can't" be terrorism.

    Evidently, he was a terrorist with a grudge against the Government


    Small plane crashes into IRS building in Texas - USATODAY.com

    A U.S. law official identified the pilot as Joseph Stack and said investigators were looking at an anti-government message on the Web linked to him. The website expresses fury at the IRS and said violence "is the only answer."

    Federal law enforcement officials said they were investigating whether the pilot crashed on purpose in an effort to blow up IRS offices and cited the Austin man's problems with the agency. All the officials spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing.

    he may not be connected to a terrorist organization, but in my book, what he did is terrorism.

    Terrorism is a tactic not a group.

    In my mind, this is an act of terrorism. He intentionally flew into the building because of his political agenda

    Clearly an inside job and cover up. Because everyone knows planes never fly into buildings...must have been explosives or a missle.
