NY Times asks- Can Soldiers Be Victims of Terrorism?

Can Soldiers Be Victims of Terrorism? That's the question raised in The New York Times of 11/20/09. The question arises out of the attack at Fort Hood, although it can be asked around the world.

Writes Robert Mackey,
"On Thursday in Washington, as my colleague David Johnston reports, several legislators declared at a Senate hearing that the murder of 12 soldiers and a retired guardsman at Fort Hood this month was “a terrorist attack.” Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, who opened the hearing,said, “We will look at the Fort Hood murders not as an isolated event, but as part of a larger pattern of homegrown terrorism that has emerged over the past several years.”"
An excellent discussion follows. Read the full article.
