Quote of the Day: Domestic terrorist networks

“Make no mistake, these are domestic terrorists,” says Spillar. “And we feel the DOJ and the FBI must treat them as such. The extremists’ activities go well beyond the actions of the lone individual and can be linked to networks that show a clear pattern of illegal activity leading to violence, murders, and deadly bombings, all of which is tied to a political agenda. They have manuals, manifestos, and monikers similar to those used by terrorist groups. And they have been linked to shootings, murders and deadly bombings. If this is not the definition of ‘terrorist network,’ I don’t know what is.”

From Alternet: Federal Marshals Abandon Doctor Targeted by Anti-Abortion Extremists

The subheadings from the article indicate the scope of the problem:

  • Alarm at Lack of Protection and Lack of Action by Gov’t Agencies
  • Carhart Targeted by Anti-Choice Radicals
  • Existing Laws Not Well Enforced

What is it going to take for these people to be officially labelled for what they are? And for the non-violent anti-abortion activists to genuinely denounce and ostracise them?
