An Ugly Truth About Torture & Terrorism

I don't agree with all of it, but there is an awful lot of truth to be found in this post.

Hell, the media and politicians aren't even calling the Austin attack terrorism, and some Republican members of Congress have gone so far as to rationalize flying planes into buildings with the intent to maim and kill government workers.

I don't even care that this news came to me through the Huffington Post and the Daily Dish. If you don't think this is an accurate portrayal of what is going on, tell me why.

Because what I'm seeing is tacit defense of and explicit justification of domestic terrorism by politicians - especially on the right - but ALSO in the current administration, who refuses to call this what it is for fear of being "divisive," and the media as a whole who are not reporting this story for what it is.

Because flying planes into buildings with the intent to maim and kill Americans for a political motive is not "inappropriate behavior."

IT IS TERRORISM.

This is disgusting. This is obscene. This is more dangerous to the health of the Republic than any threat from without.
