Domestic Terrorism - Not

If you dig a bit there's a story going around about a bomb being set off at the back door of the Social Security office in Casa Grande AZ, a suburb of Phoenix.

The bomber was picked up rapidly as his car and license number was noted by a suspicious citizen. It was a big bomb, or a very small town as practically everyone heard it but no one was actually injured. Daily Kos has already ID'd the bomber as a Tea Partier in the advance wave of the upcoming right wing revolution. The FBI however, ID's the culprit as one Abdullatif A. Aldosary, 47, an Iraqi refugee with a long history of disruptive behavior.

The first clue should have been the bombing of a Social Security office. The SSA is doing more damage to the U.S. than all of Al-Quaida put together. Also a not insignificant number of Tea Partiers are on Social Security and while they wouldn't object to seeing it phased out, they certainly don't want to miss a check.

The FBI refuses to call this domestic terrorism:
A quote from an annonymous FBI source says
This contact said that it is highly unlikely that Aldosary will be charged with any terrorism offense. While they are internally treating it like a domestic terrorism investigation, including looking at if he had any help constructing the explosive device, the FBI is saying very little and and will prosecute this as a simple explosives and arson case because of “the political sensitivities involved.”
The thinking goes, I guess, that if you do nothing to upset the sensibilities of the terrorists, maybe they'll put the next bomb in front of a Wall St. bank instead of the white house.
