A beheading in Oklahoma: Was it terrorism or workplace violence?

But as residents of Moore grapple with the shock of what happened in their town, the gruesome nature of the crime has also sparked a politically charged question: Was it an act of Islamist terrorism or an extreme case of workplace violence?
Mashburn and other local officials have so far described what happened at Vaughan Foods as a horrifying but random case of an angry worker lashing out. But the grisly attack came after months of highly publicized beheadings by the Islamic State militant group and just days after the FBI warned local law enforcement officials around the country to be on guard against domestic attacks by supporters of the group, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
While the FBI says it has found no links so far between Nolen and the Islamic State or other extremist groups, there is little doubt he sympathized with their cause. Nolen, who had recently converted to Islam while serving time in prison for drug and assault charges, posted long anti-American screeds to his Facebook page, where he was listed under the name Jah'Keem Yisrael. On the page, which has since been removed, he published photos of Osama bin Laden and militant fighters as well as warnings to people who did not adhere to Muslim beliefs.

I have to agree...Based on the information contained in the Thread, my choice of categories would be terrorism.
I have to agree...
It seems like we have been a target for a long time now brutha Clyde. I remembered when we were all assured this would all go away when the bad guy was caught. I don't think we are use to this type of long sustained attacks.
Maybe we need to really ask ourselves are we under attack and at war? It seems the thing to do for some American in to become our enemy, like Snowden. The hold him up as a hero for leaking information to other countries, but blame Obama for breach and lack of security when things go wrong.
