This is a quote from the "manifesto" that Joe Stack left behind in explanation of why he crashed an airplane into an IRS building. If this guy is a terrorist, we'd better deploy 30,000 troops to Texas ASAP.
"Why is it that a handful of thugs and plunderers can commit unthinkable atrocities (and in the case of the GM executives, for scores of years) and when it's time for their gravy train to crash under the weight of their gluttony and overwhelming stupidity, the force of the full federal government has no difficulty coming to their aid within days if not hours? Yet at the same time, the joke we call the American medical system, including the drug and insurance companies, are murdering tens of thousands of people a year and stealing from the corpses and victims they cripple, and this country's leaders don't see this as important as bailing out a few of their vile, rich cronies. Yet, the political "representatives" (thieves, liars, and self-serving scumbags is far more accurate) have endless time to sit around for year after year and debate the state of the "terrible health care problem". It's clear they see no crisis as long as the dead people don't get in the way of their corporate profits rolling in...."

A newly public video shows the moment of impact between the small plane and tourist helicopter that collided over the Hudson River in New York last weekend, killing nine.
The accident was caught on video Saturday by an Italian tourist who was practicing with a new camera. It was aired Thursday on "NBC Nightly News."
The video seems to show the small plane climbing and turning slightly before its wing is clipped by the helicopter's rotor blades. The plane can be seen overturning and falling toward the water.
One or more onlookers can be heard in the background, saying: "Oh my God! Oh my God!"
Officials have asked anyone with images of the crash to turn them over to investigators.

The Air France plane that crashed last month with 228 people aboard "did not break up or become destroyed in flight," the French air investigation agency announced Thursday.
"The plane went straight down ... towards the surface of the water, very very fast," air accident investigator Alain Bouillard said.
Based on visual study of the physical remains of the Airbus A330 that have been recovered, "we were able to see that the plane hit the surface of the water flat. Therefore everything was pushed upwards -- everthing was pushed from the bottom to the top" of the plane, he said.
The 228 people killed in the crash "had no time to prepare," he said.
