"Q: Is an abortion clinic bomber a terrorist, under this definition, governor?

PALIN: (Sigh). There’s no question that Bill Ayers via his own admittance was one who sought to destroy our U.S. Capitol and our Pentagon. That is a domestic terrorist. There’s no question there. Now, others who would want to engage in harming innocent Americans or facilities that uh, it would be unacceptable. I don’t know if you’re going to use the word terrorist there."

(Video included)

BTW, terrorist/terrorism:
"is violence against civilians to achieve political or ideological objectives by creating fear..."
www.wikipedia.odjechane.net/en/wiki/Terrorism.html

"is defined by the US Department of Defense as "the unlawful use of -- or threatened use of -- force or violence against individuals or ..."

To be fair, she didn't actually state that she does not agree that it's terrorism, unless she said more on the video than is written in the post.

She pulls that wonderful politician act of "you can certainly tell what I mean by what I said, but I said it in such a way that I can either retract it later - claiming new information - claim to have been mis-understood or strengthen it, depending on political need."

The scary thing is that this woman could be one fatal heart attack away from the seat of power in a week...

She really is incredibly ignorant from what I've seen bandied about. Worrying, no, FRIGHTENING to think about.

I use dictionary.com a lot too. But there's something nice about holding a lexicon. Rawr. LOL

My mother used to make me read the dictionary when I asked her what words meant. I am forever grateful.

Perhaps we need to bring back the dictionary.

I guess it isn't terrorism if we ignore the established legal definition of terrorism.

to me saying that isn't terrorism is like saying abortion is murder. Both ignore legal definitions to fill an agenda
