According to German Prosecutor Rainer Griesbaum, the suspected shooter of two U.S. airmen at the Frankfurt airport, 21-year-old Arid Uka from Kosovo, confessed that he specifically wanted to kill Americans as revenge for the Afghan war.

Meanwhile a representative of the Obama administration, U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, compared the murder of 2 US soldiers to the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and implied that it wasn’t terrorism:

"Was the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords a terrorist attack? I mean, you have to look at the evidence and look at the motivation and then you make a judgment."

Officials also point out that the shooter apparently acted alone rather than as part of a terrorist group.

Response: What is a terrorist? According to the Obama classification this shooter acted alone and therefore is no ‘terrorist’.

However for me intent and motivation is everything when it comes to terrorism. Arid Uka told investigators that he specifically sought to kill American soldiers as revenge for the Afghan War. To highlight exactly what he was doing he yelled out:

‘Allah Akbar’

The jihadi yell frames what he was doing and his motivation. The very intent is to terrorize in the name of Islam. Even if he acted alone it is still terrorism. How can it be anything else?           *Top
