Anchorage Daily News | FBI says inquiry into July 4 shooting a 'terrorism investigation'

Yeah, this is good.
Basically, the Bush, Inc., misadministration has decided to rewrite the Constitution all on its own now.
FBI agents had refused to describe the attack as terror because its legal definition of terrorism was work of "subnational groups or clandestine agents." No evidence has been found to link Hadayet with one.
Because of the attack, however, the Bush administration reconsidered the definition, and President Bush's domestic security plan now says criminal acts can qualify as terror without participation of a group. "Terrorism is not so much a system of belief ... as it is a strategy and a tactic - a means of attack," the plan says.
That's right, boys and girls, a means of attack. A strategy. A tactic. Note how subjective the definition has suddenly become?
Now they can basically define any crime as "terrorism-related" and off to Gitmo with you. Welcome to the 4th Reich.
