Eco-Terrorism is still the No. 1 Domestic Terror Threat

Fox News reports this here:

For nearly seven years, the nation has turned its terror focus on Al Qaeda and the hunt for Usama bin Laden. But there is a domestic terror threat that federal officials still consider priority No. 1 — eco-terrorism.

The torching of luxury homes in the swank Seattle suburb of Woodinville earlier this month served as a reminder that the decades-long war with militant environmentalists on American soil has not ended.

"It remains what we would probably consider the No. 1 domestic terrorism threat, because they have successfully continued to conduct different types of attacks in and around the country," said FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko.

The FBI defines eco-terrorism "as the use or threatened use of violence of a criminal nature against innocent victims or property by an environmentally oriented, subnational group for environmental-political reasons, or aimed at an audience beyond the target, often of a symbolic nature." . . .

I did a Google news search on "Eco-Terrorism Domestic Terror Threat" and came up with only seven hits. Interesting that there weren't more for the top domestic terror threat, but I guess that the environment doesn't generate much interest.

Or is it possible that many members writing for the media quietly support eco-terrorism.

There is lots of evidence that most major media outlets routinely prevent stories from being published, that don't support the views they espouse.

After all, some of the terrorists pick on McMansions as the biggest crisis facing the planet.

A decidedly thoughtless agenda...

Your Fox News piece about the recession totally sucked. You came off like a communist. And your inflation stats were wrong. Why? Cause you were using GOVERNMENT inflation stats. And the government doesn't want people to know just how much inflation it is causing due to bad monetary policy, so it softens the numbers.

Why don't you just take the plunge and advocate a complete centralization and nationalization of the entire economy, you socialist?
