do we happen to have a working definition of domestic terrorism?

A federal grand jury indicted a former Camp Lejeune Marine on Wednesday on charges that he threatened the life of Barack Obama, the U.S. Attorney's Office confirmed today.

Kody Brittingham, 20, formerly a lance corporal with 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, was accused of making threats against Obama while he was president-elect, said Robin Zier, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office for the eastern district of North Carolina.

Brittingham was arrested by the Jacksonville Police Department on breaking and entering charges in mid-December 2008.
While the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is investigating the five for possible federal weapons violations, there is no indication the other four knew about Brittingham's supposed journal, a law enforcement source said. Brittingham is the only one of the five suspects who is white.

Of the other three Marines, two are still active duty and one has been discharged.

A 'former' which is why Naval CID was checking out his barrack locker...

For those who can not remember that far back, timothy mcveigh went off the res, and blew up the Federal Bldg in Oklahoma City...

The next part of the question is what should be the standard held with regards to those who are advocating, supporting, and providing the psuedo-political cover for these terrorist operations.

What if these terrorist operations were conducted in a time of tax cuts.
