FBI is in total denial

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Jeffrey A. Supowit (United States), Jul 9, 2002 at 21:11

The question is why the FBI is in total denial on what is obviously a terrorist killing. It is totally baffling why they would distinguish a "hate crime" against Jews and Israelis as something different from terror. This must be an effort to lull the public to sleep. Although it is possible this terrorist was not connected to a known terrorist organization, it seems to me that this is a frightening example of an Arab Muslim targeting American Jews. It is important that we increase our vigilance at this time.
