So the murderous rampage in Oak Creek, WI is officially classified as Domestic Terrorism while the far more violent and religiously motivated rampage by Nidal Hasan, (who screamed out “Allahu Akbar!” as he killed 13 and wounded 29) was classed as Workplace Violence.
Hmm… Seems the Oak Creek villain sported tattoos and is otherwise linked to a hate group (will this be the Tea Party? Liberals are hoping so…).
Tattoos on the body of the slain Sikh temple gunman and certain biographical details led the FBI to treat the attack at a Milwaukee-area temple as an act of domestic terrorism, officials said Sunday. LA Times
Here is the apparent definition of Domestic Terrorism.
The designation of “domestic terrorism” under the FBI’s rubric — which was not applied to the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting — implies a political agenda. The FBI defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.” LA Times
So why wasn’t Hasan’s killing rampage considered Domestic Terrorism?
The same reason any mention of Islamic Terrorism has been stricken from government documents: Hasan is aligned with the same “religion” as is the man who occupies the office of the president of the United States.
