Recently the Fort Hood shootings were (and still are) in the news and the word "terrorism" has at times been attached as an explanation.
What do you think? Was it terrorism or something else?
It seems like it might be a simple judgement call. Complicating factors are it was an attack on miliatry personel (not civilians) who were preparing to be deployed to an active theater of operations. So even if the motivation was political or religious and not madness it is still not so simple to label it terrorism. Was it a legitimate military target? Are attacks on military personel and military targets still terrorist attacks?
